I have not written in some time on my political site, Biblicistreport.com. But I absolutely had to write out my thoughts on this total debacle of a withdraw from of the United States from Afghanistan. Let me just say up front that I agreed with Trump’s decision to get us out of Afghanistan. But as he pointed out in a recent interview with Shaun Hannity of Fox News, there was an orderly way to do it.
In an interview today, President Biden said “the idea that somehow, there’s a way to have gotten out without chaos ensuing, I don’t know how that happens”. Are you kidding us? Does that sound like leadership? Chaos is the absence of leadership.
You can read my full take on this, what Trump said and how I think we could have handled the withdraw in a much more orderly fashion at Biblicistreport.com.
Evangelical Christians make up around 22 percent of the American population and over 80 percent of evangelical Christians voted for Trump in 2016. It would not be an understatement to say that evangelical Christians helped elect Donald Trump in his first election and they will be just as critical to electing him next week.
John Piper is one of the most respected evangelical pastors in America. He is the pastor of Bethlehem Baptist church in Minneapolis and the author of numerous Christian books. On October 22nd, he wrote an article entitled “Policies, Persons, and Paths to Ruin” where he outlined why he could not vote for either Trump or Biden.
I was going to write my own rebuttal of Piper’s views on the 2020 election as a fellow Baptist and evangelical but then I came across an excellent rebuttal of John Piper’s article by a close friend of his – Wayne Grudem.
In my article “Piper vs Grudem on Trump vs Biden” over on BiblicistReport.com, I give excerpts from both of these respected evangelical theologians. And Wayne Grudem does an excellent job of rebutting the position taken by Piper. This is a must read for evangelical Christians before next week’s election. You can read the full article here.
