Donald Trump Is The First President To Turn Postmodernism Against Itself

This is a very interesting article. Even if you don’t agree with his entire argument, you’ll walk away with a better understanding of the modern world and postmodernism’s influence over it, including ways in which this has seeped into the church. That said, I think his overall argument carries a lot of weight as well.

  1. You are right, I agree with your second sentence. I not only don’t agree with his argument, I don’t agree with his argument at all. It’s a convenient comparison for Christians that disagree with Trump because the don’t like him and were probably part of the NeverTrump crowd which I call the NeverVote group. NeverVote until things are perfect and you have the perfect Christian with excellent moral character. How many times has that happened in our short history? Instead of voting for the candidate that will rid the country of abortion a NeverVote Christian is in essence a vote for Hillary who supports and defends abortion. If Trump gets one more Supreme Court pick after Gorsuch, abortion may be eliminated 60 million lives later. I can’t understand why the NeverVote Christian crowd doesn’t see it and this author no doubt is in this camp. Comparing him to fictional bad guys means he will never get over the fact he was elected. If we get rid of Roe vs Wade in a few years (one liberal judge almost needs a ventilator), I hope to see an apology for this fake news regarding Trump.

  2. I don’t know if the writer voted or not. Frankly, it doesn’t matter. We should deal with what he’s written. God always uses broken vessels to accomplish His purposes and often uses very broken, and even rebellious, vessels to accomplish His purposes. The Bible is full of examples of this, especially in the history of OT Israel. I voted for Trump and yet found this article to accurately diagnose much of the Trump phenomenon. Sure, there are people that have a higher standard for the Presidency than they do for the pastorate and that’s wrong. But, it shouldn’t deter us from seeing Trump as he is. I’m very thankful for much of what Trump has done so far but my thanksgiving is to God for He is the one working this out. In another, more faithful, age, Trump would’ve been laughed off the national stage. But, because of much of what’s written in the article, he is where he is and the signs are initially positive that God will accomplish good from him. I’m sure it will be a mixed bag but I’ll be thankful for every good thing. That said, my prayer will primarily be that he places his hope firmly in the Lord and not in himself, or man more broadly.
