Trump is immoral

The Church reflects the goodness, truth, and beauty of its founder and head, Jesus Christ. But in the same way, human institutions reflect the attributes of their heads. Our country can not tolerate another four years of moral decay under his administration. Donald Trump’s moral failings disqualify him from the Office of the President of the United States.

Trump's Record

“To the many evangelicals who continue to support Mr. Trump in spite of his blackened moral record, we might say this: Remember who you are and whom you serve. Consider how your justification of Mr. Trump influences your witness to your Lord and Savior. Consider what an unbelieving world will say if you continue to brush off Mr. Trump’s immoral words and behavior in the cause of political expediency. If we don’t reverse course now, will anyone take anything we say about justice and righteousness with any seriousness for decades to come? Can we say with a straight face that abortion is a great evil that cannot be tolerated and, with the same straight face, say that the bent and broken character of our nation’s leader doesn’t really matter in the end?”

“Trump Should Be Removed from Office”, Christianity Today, December 19, 2019


“Remember the moral majority? When ‘moral’ meant something? And now we have a guy running for president being advocated by Christian university presidents and pastors who’s a public adulterer?...

What happened to the moral majority? Evangelicalism used to kind of be equated with the moral majority, morality doesn’t define us anymore”

- John MacArthur


“If a public personality calls on Christ one day and calls someone a “bimbo” the next, is something not awry? And to do so, not once, but repeatedly? Unrepentantly? Unapologetically? Can we not expect a tone that would set a good example for our children? We stand against bullying in schools. Shouldn’t we do the same in presidential politics?
Could concerns not be raised about other Christian candidates? Absolutely. But the concern of this article is not policy, but tone and decorum. When it comes to language, Mr. Trump is in a league of his own. “It is out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks,” Jesus said. Let speech befit the call. We, as Christians, would do well to summon any Christian leader to a higher standard. This includes pastors (especially this one), teachers, coaches and, by all means, presidential candidates."
