🤗 A very keen observation here Glenn. If this account of history does repeat itself (and it is already a given that history absolutely does not repeat itself, which makes this inference all the more likely) then we should see Trump dethroned by no other than a woman come November 3, 2020. 😄
It is quite odd how evangelicals (specifically their doctrine) has little to do with the essence of theology. By the remarkable appearance of it, they continue to view and see Christ’s death as a ransom that is perpetuated as justification in the context of atonement.
So if in fact, as evangelicals see it, Trump is an instrument of God, like Cyrus, then Trump serves their own divine interest — by removing the guilt and the sin deriving from their insensitive beliefs and motivated ignorance in supporting and defending his reign— which in turn makes them more righteous so long as they see Trump as an atoning sacrifice in faith for their supposed deliverance. That deliverance is apparently from the wrath of immigrants, minorities, and globalization.
If this doesn’t make sense, then it is because it isn’t supposed to.
