White Christians Who Voted for Donald Trump: Fix This. Now.
Reader, another powerful article by Pastor John Pavlovitz.
Remember the Sunday school song that we all learned as children? Jesus loves the little children, All the children of the World, I believe that means every single one, not the ones that some Christians believe are OK. He also did not say that they had to believe in him for him to love them. Christians please stop making the Bible fit your prejudices!
"At times like these, Christians like to smile sweetly and say, “God is in control.” No. God is not in control. God didn’t vote for Donald Trump, you did. Stop passing the buck to God. God isn’t defacing prayer rooms. God isn’t taunting gay teenagers. God is not bullying kids on buses. God isn’t threatening Muslim families. White Christians are. You are in control of this. You have pulpits and pews and a voice and influence and social media, so get to work."
