Trumpers, or those who hold the doctrine of Trumpism are the new Separatists, or in another time, the Anabaptists. And if you’ve read Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, you know what the Traditionalist Majority does with the Separatists.
The current battle (make no mistake it’s a spiritual battle) against Trump, and Trumpers is taking a familiar shape.
If you put the Catholic Church, the Lutheran Church, The Episcopalian Church, and the Presbyterian Church into a bag, shook it up, and pulled out one without looking, you would have to peer at the details to see which one is which. They all rely on traditional forms which each has “reformed” to their own liking.
Mix in the Baptists, and suddenly, you have a new thing. Something not based on reform, but on rediscovery – rediscovery of the roots and foundation of Christianity. And you’ll have persecution from those others in the bag.
Even so now.
Fox News, in an article about Virginia Thomas, says, “Her apology comes at a time of reckoning for conservatives, who must decide whether to continue to embrace Trump or return to a more traditional Republican approach to politics.”
Trumpers are the new Baptists. And the traditionalists are furious.
And the reason they are furious? Revelation 12.12 “…the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.”
To misquote Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. ““the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward freedom.”
Trumpism is freedom. Embrace Trump. Embrace the Trump in you.
