Trump Must Run in 2024 to Save America
David Keltz, from an article posted by The American Spectator
“…our country desperately needs him,…”ibid
This article, written a year ago, consists of a litany of the problems which America faces and concludes that only, singularly, Donald Trump is up to the task of solving them properly. Nobody else can do it. Captain Warp Speed to the rescue! Even so come, Lord Donald!!
The title alone is enough to condemn the author of blasphemy and idol worship because it elevates the person of Donald Trump, a sinful human being, to the position of savior. Nowhere in the article does it mention the name of Jesus Christ nor the need for individual Americans to recognize Him as Supreme Authority. Nowhere does it call on individual Americans to confess their sin of belief in a centralized government. Nowhere does it recommend a national repentance and turning away from this bastardization of faith. Instead, it is only the same old, same old narrative we have heard from the very beginning: “If we can just get the right people in to act as leaders, our problems will be solved.” And untold millions of Americans are waltzing down this primrose path, just hoping that they will have one more chance to vote in favor of the Golden Calf of partisan politics. Golden Calf, that is, from their perspective.
Whether Trump will run again is debatable. Whether he can win if he does run is uncertain. The Left/Democrats/Deep State are terrified that he will and they are doing everything they can, legally or illegally, to stop him before he starts and they will pull out all the stops to defeat him if he begins. Assassination is not out of the question. (BTW, raiding Mar-A-Lago was a pin-prick compared to what will happen if Trump is assassinated. If the powers-that-be really wanted to start a civil war in this country, that would do it.)
There is one thing which is certain, however.
“Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them [false idols or gods], nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.”Exodus 20:5
Of them that hate me! Is this not America? Has this not been America’s bent for at least 100 years? Have we not put our faith and trust in our own democratically built, modern version of the Golden Calf? In progressivism? In our own philosophies? Do we not fervently believe in government to right every wrong, to lead us into green pastures, to save us from ourselves? Of course, we do, and the greatest culprits in all this are those people who ought to know better, those who espouse salvation in Jesus Christ, yet run to the State as soon as something needs to be rectified–especially it it concerns money and the personal benefits which accrue from it.
“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.”Galatians 6:7, ESV
David Keltz should be more careful with his words. American Christians should be more careful what they wish for. The damage is visibly piling up.
