The only conservativism that we need to worry about is conservative Christianity. Conservative Christians should not have voted for Trump because he is a true conservative or because he is a faithful Christian because he is not either of those things.
Paul told Timothy that we are to pray for leaders. Why? Paul answers, “that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.” (1 Tim. 2:1-2) IN OTHER WORDS, we pray for and vote for the leader that is going to make decisions that will allow us the freedom to carry out our ministry quietly and in peace.
While Trump is no conservative, genuine, Christian by any means (Matt 7:17-18, 21-23), he is adamant about proposing conservative justices on the US Supreme Court, which can protect Christians freedom for decades to come. Christians will not be forced to share in the sins of the world (i.e., make a cake as a bakery for homosexual weddings), they can act on their conscience. Trump is also very serious about protecting America from Islamic terrorism and Islam’s agenda of undermining our Christian nation. Trump is also serious about dealing with the illegal immigrants that are costing the nation and being used only for Democratic votes.
Trump is finding himself under attack from the liberal, progressive, socialist media, democratic politicians, Hollywood and so many other segments of society. Why? Because Obama was about building a socialist nation that hated itself and loved other countries more. Now, Trump is rolling that back and making America first. This does not mean that we ignore other countries. Rather it means that we put American conservative values first. It bears repeating as to why we support whichever politician that will give us religious freedom and protect us from enemies. Paul answers, “that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.” (1 Tim. 2:1-2) In other words, we pray for and vote for the leader that is going to make decisions that will allow us the freedom to carry out our ministry quietly and in peace.
We have but one leader, Jesus Christ, and the United States has been a great tool to protect Christianity for centuries and can do so up unto the great tribulation. We do not know what the future holds in detail, but we do know that a great tribulation is on the horizon and things are going to go from bad to worse. (Matt 24:21-28; 2 Tim. 3:1-7)
Therefore, let us carry out our ministry because the time is short, and we can use this period of peace wisely. We need to find a way for true Christians to unite under one God, becoming one in doctrine, word, and deed. We need to proclaim the Word of God, teach and make disciples. (Matt 24:14; 28;19; Ac 1:8) Not all so-called Christians are going to survive Christ’s return. (Matt 7:21-23, 1 John 2:15-17) Jesus asked, “when I return will I really find the faith.” (Lu 18:8) Not at this point and time with our 49,000 different Christian denominations all swearing they are the truth and the way even though they are all divided. Even churches within the same denominations are divided because of autonomy. Christ’s second coming will happen in one of two ways.
ONE: Jesus chooses true Christians out of all of these denominations, and the false Christians will hear the words, “‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’” (Matt. 7:23)
TWO: Before the end comes one true form of Christianity will develop and all true Christians will see the light and migrate in the name of uniting under the one God. (Ex. 3:12; 19:17; Deut. 4:35; 4:39; Josh. 22:34; 2 Sam. 7:28; 1 Ki 8:60)
