A Message For Bewildered White MAGA Christians

My dear White MAGA Christian friends, the election is over, and now, it’s time for us to talk about God. That’s right. What better time to talk about God than when your butt has been handed to you in a fair fight?

I haven’t been kind to my former cronies at CBN or any of the ministers who’ve, whether willingly or by their silence, supported the last four years as if God Himself was ordering them to do so. You, my faithful friends, are going to have a lot of explaining to do at the end of this life.

You’ve probably not heard this — because you watch Fox News religiously — but you’re going to hell unless you bring forth a serious level of repentance. It’s not Terry that’s doing the cursing here; it’s the Holy Spirit, and your response is going to mean everything as we attempt to build something meaningful out of this horrendous mess. Maybe, just maybe, this was God’s plan all alone — to raise up Donald Trump in order to end the heresy you’ve been following, that prosperity for you is promised if you just go along. You clearly haven’t exactly been doing what you’ve been called to do by Jesus Himself, so take it up with Him, not me.

So, let me be completely honest and up front with you. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves for at least the following:

  • Casting your lot with the Pharisees as they proceeded to crucify our Savior all over again.
  • The relentless bearing of false witness in the name of God Himself.
  • Damning the poor simply because you’ve already gotten “yours.”
  • Your defensive NIMBY, suburban responses to poverty. The simple fact that you voted for Trump validates this, because he’s certainly used it to scare you over the years.
  • Trading your spiritual lives for political power under the sun.
  • Your false narrative that pro-choice people are actually pro-abortion.
  • Failing your faith dramatically and your walk with God.
  • Seriously damaging the church and by extension, the very person you claim to represent, Jesus Christ.
  • Worse, you continue to damage the church’s mission. Do you really think that God approves of what you’ve done?
  • By giving yourselves over to idolatry, you’re also damaging our relationship with the planet that God gave us in the beginning. Did you honestly think He would stand by and let you get away with this?
  • Standing by as hundreds of thousands of Americans died in this pandemic. You claimed Psalm 91 for protection, Are you saying that those who died deserved it, because they were unable to swallow your dogma?
  • Closing your ears to the moans and whimpers of the children torn from their mothers by your xenophobia. Are you so unaware of God’s anger with the hurting of children, that you could ignore this?

I have to ask again: Did you really think you could get away with this? That God would bless your licentiousness? That, as “God’s people” you are somehow better and more deserving than everybody else?

You are living the Gospel of Self, and I know this, because I was there at the beginning when this whole plot to overthrow the government of the United States was first hatched. I’ve repented and publicly apologized for my role in it, and I urge each of you to do the same.

Here’s the thing. Let’s suppose that the sovereignty of Almighty God is a real thing, and that God lifts up nations and casts down others based on their responses to Him. You have to ask yourself if God wasn’t actually engineering all of this from the get-go in order to break the Prosperity Gospel heresy, and to teach us to first love Him, ourselves, and our neighbors. As He often does, He gave you enough rope to hang yourselves, because you wouldn’t listen to Him. Did you really think that voting for mammon was “of God?” Really?

You have been betrayed by those who lead you, and I’ll grant you that. But, they are not responsible for your actions and behavior. Only you can do something about that. Now is the time, not a few weeks or months down-the-line. Christians of all stripes need to get on their knees right now and beg for forgiveness, for only in that way can we even begin to hope that God will heal our land.
