John Pavlovitz: “It’s Time We Stopped Calling Donald Trump a Christian”

“Jesus says that we can judge people. We should evaluate the things we can see. We can measure devotion to God by what is manifested outwardly. We look at the ‘fruit’.

What is the fruit of Donald Trump’s life, of his marriages, his business dealings, his campaign, of his young Presidency? […]

It’s rotten fruit, that’s what it is.

It’s exactly the kind of greedy, bloated, bitter, violent, self-centered, myopic existence that Jesus spent his life calling us to reject. So no, I don’t know the President’s heart or his inner confession of faith, but I have eyes and they see no love or benevolence or compassion—and that does matter to Jesus.”
