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?
