Saw an article come up in one of my newsfeeds, the basis of it being that the Trump inspired brand of Christianity, such as
is not true Christianity. The writer makes the point that Jesus himself told us to beware such people
“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.” —Jesus (Matthew 7:15-20)
A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.
Sounds like quite the description of Trump and Trumpism and Trump inspired Christianity to me.
