They don't worship him they worship what he represents: the ability to be the worst person imaginable but face no consequences for it and be mostly sound-proofed against any judgement or criticism because the people surrounding him are trying to curry his favor in the hopes that they be the next despicable despot.

Trump represents them being able to completely take their masks off and stop having to pretend to be anyone other than who they really are.

In a sense, he's the closest thing to a god they have, thus...baptisms under his banner.

They don't have enough character or consistency to be truly racist or any sort of -ist because they'll just jump ship to whatever discrimination gives them a leg-up or a feeling of undeserved superiority the moment it presents itself to them and as long as they feel they're in company that will let them get away with it.

That's what these people are worshipping. The ability to be greedy, self-serving and duplicitous nakedly no matter the company they currently keep or the overall visibility of their behavior because nobody else is doing well enough to be able to afford calling them out on it.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'll go to my grave not understanding why these people follow him. They claim to hate the "coastal elites" but then straight up worship a known con man who lives/lived in a gold plated, upper floor NY apartment in a tower with his name on it. He clearly couldn't care less about any of these people and he literally looks down on them. You can't find a better example of someone they claim to be against, but they lined up behind him on day one. Completely wild to me.

Amen.

Matthew 6:1 "Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

2 “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

Did not grow up in any church, so this is all technically supposition, but they believe what they're told is in the bible. A LOT of Christians only know what has been preached to them and not much (if any) more.

There's a reason why Asimov's quote is so accurate. "Properly read, The Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived.".

Because it requires a lot of reading, and they don’t want to do that, so they just listen to whatever their pastor says. And their pastor says whatever gets people in their church, because their funding depends on the number of followers they have.

So now we no longer have a religion based on what’s exactly written, but a religion based on what some dude in a robe thinks will get people in their pews that’s selectively chosen or loosely based on what’s written. Sometimes it might even mean teaching the opposite of what Jesus taught just to get more donations. It’s more of a grift than a religion at this point.

u/RevenantXenos Sep 25 '22

If you need more texts that say "love, don't hate" I got some good ones for you. Sorry for the wall of text, know that there are some inside the church who support you and want you to be accepted for who you are.

Titus 3:1-11 Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone.

At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.

But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless. Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them. You may be sure that such people are warped and sinful; they are self-condemned.

James 4:11-12 Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?

The thesis of 1 John is that Christians are to love people. Basically any passage is going to say that. This is summed up nicely in the following verses. 1 John 4:7-21 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.

By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.

Matthew 22:34-40 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

This is already too long, but here's more verses to check out. 2 Timothy 2:14-3:9 Matthew 7 Romans 15:1-7 Colossians 3:1-17

u/umbravivum Sep 25 '22

my only issue is that "real christians" don't call out the fake ones

I do. That said, and I know the hypocrisy is not lost on me. It's legit against the faith to do so. In the New Testament Jesus makes it clear that only God has the right to judge us for our moral failings. Even Jesus himself didn't have the right before his ascension. All he did was point out the hypocrisy and remind everyone that a much larger and powerful force would hold them accountable. And only God and appointed religious authority (the pope) have the right to speak out against such butchery of the faith.

So while I go around telling these people that what they are doing is wrong and misrepresentative of our faith, I am guilty of sin for doing so. Just as they are guilty of other sins for what they do.

That said, I rather go to hell knowing I said my peace and defended my faith, and get to say "I told you so" to these fucks than keep my mouth shut and "guarantee" my seat in heaven.

u/Strong-Message-168 Sep 25 '22

I'm not even a religious person...but when you see people baptizing in his name...fuck! It has to make you wonder

u/good_times60275 Sep 25 '22

I'm not religious either... but I am a believer. I've said the exact same thing to people in my personal life during his "reign". Seems no one listens. Personally, I appreciate your original comment and open sight. The future is terrifying. I couldn't agree with you more tho.

If he isn't, imagine how.much worse the actual anti-Christ will be. Revelation says that the anti-Christ will hold power over the minds of men, including Christians, deceiving them into following him.

So if Trump isn't, and the American Church is already this bad, these people don't stand a freaking chance when the real deal shows up.

If these so called Christians had ever bothered to read the Bible… they would still misinterpret it and use it to make themselves feel better about hating others.

Man, they do that for sure. I'm a Christian without a church right now because of this and many other issues.

u/ThePopeofHell Sep 25 '22

The Daily, NYT’s podcast devoted yesterdays podcast to a former evangelical preacher. It was really interesting from my non religious point of view. I don’t think you’re alone.

To sum it up he was essentially forced out of his church for standing up for equal rights and labeled a Marxist.

Church isn't supposed to be something Christians find. It's who they are when they do good things together. Church isn't a self serving organization. It's just a people doing normal people stuff. Dont bother looking for a Church. Look for ways to be the Church.

But then she also thinks demons run capital hill, Obama was a Muslim, and black people deserved slavery because of "practicing witchcraft in Africa". That last one she thinks because an Indian "prophet" told her so. She gives him so much money. There's no getting her to see logic.

US baptists are so far removed from the source of their faith. It's honestly so bizarre to watch. Canadian here. Raised catholic but defs athiest. It boggles me that these 'pastors' wear what they want and say whatever they want. It weaponizes peoples faith. Isn't this man supposed to represent his church is some way? In his jeans, unofficial location, and trump merch? As an athiest I have an expectation that religious 'leaders' have some decorum and professionalism. Obvy this expectation gets disappointed.
