In defense of his endorsement of Donald Trump, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. said, “God called King David a man after God’s own heart even though he was an adulterer and a murderer.”
Jerry Falwell Jr. appears to have neither a relationship with God nor even a superficial knowledge of who Donald Trump has been or what he has done over the last fifty years, prior to his announcing for the Presidency.
Donald Trump has clearly, plainly and loudly proclaimed that he has never repented of his sin.
Listen to David, who really was “a man after God’s own heart:”
“Be gracious to me, God,
according to Your faithful love;
according to Your abundant compassion,
blot out my rebellion.
Wash away my guilt
and cleanse me from my sin.
For I am conscious of my rebellion,
and my sin is always before me.
Against You—You alone—I have sinned
and done this evil in Your sight.
So You are right when You pass sentence;
You are blameless when You judge.
Indeed, I was guilty when I was born;
I was sinful when my mother conceived me.”
I think Jerry Falwell’s statement shows him to be a very shallow Christian, assuming that his Christianity is more than cultural. David was not a man after God’s own heart because he was a macho man but because he fully realized his weakness and his failure to live up to God’s standard. David was a man who consistently confessed his sin and constantly sought the Lord for forgiveness, guidance and strength.
Donald, in his unrepentant self, is the spitting image of Lucifer.
Why do the “Famous” Christians today, have such an obvious lack of discernment?
One thought on “TRUMP IS NO KING DAVID”
No, Trump is nothing like King David. He is, however, much akin to David’s predecessor. The unavoidable reality about the presidential election is that whomever is elected will reflect the character majority of our country. If you read 1 Samuel Chapter 8, you will see when the nation of Israel asked God to give them a king because they wanted be like the other nations. That was not God’s desire for them, but the majority cried out to the prophet Samuel to ask God to place a king over them. So God gave them what they wanted. He gave them a king that reflected the character majority of the nation of Israel at that time. He gave them King Saul, who was a liar. He first seemed strong and competent, but he couldn’t hide the reality that he was, at heart, a coward. He was greedy, selfish, narcissistic, untrustworthy, unreliable and only out for himself and his own interests. One of the worst traits about King Saul is that he never admitted when he was wrong– he never repented, there was no humilty to be found in him, he always had an excuse. King David may have murdered and committed adultery, but he always repented unto God with a truly contrite heart.
Until America, as a nation, repents for her prideful waywardness from God Almighty, we will continue to be led by the kind of leaders we deserve. Our leaders will continue to be our punishment.
The presidential race will most likely be run by Clinton and Trump. And between those two choices, one of them will be our punishment.
“The LORD said to Samuel, ‘Listen to the voice of the people in regard to all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me that I should not reign over them…they have forsaken Me and served other gods…. And in that day you will cry out because of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves, but the LORD will not answer you in that day.’” (1 Samuel 8).
