To review: President Trump had a sexual relationship with a porn star while his present wife was pregnant. President Trump had a sexual relationship outside his present marriage after his wife had given birth to their son.
The reaction from most of President Trump's evangelical friends is to either deny it or say, "So?"
This is how transactional the friendship is. President Trump delivers the goods and they give him cover. It is a user relationship that would make drug dealers proud. President Trump gives evangelicals their fix and they tell the cops the heroin came from someone else.
Along the way, they've given up their witness. They've given up trying to draw new converts to Christ. But most damnably, they've given up on Donald Trump. These friends should be calling on Donald Trump to repent. They're too busy enjoying sitting around the table to do so. They're scared to get thrown out of the cool kids party.
God's prophets were always getting mistreated and shunned. It was the court priests who got welcomed in with flattering words for the heretic kings and queens. Jezebel's priests had silver tongues, but are now in hell, while the prophets she slew will play a role on that final day.
And I have to think they'll be looking at all the President's evangelical super very best friends and asking them why they never called on President Trump to repent. Why did not they shun him until he came back to them with a penitent heart? That won't happen because they don't have the heart for Jesus anymore. They've become drunk off of access to power. They're too busy having too good a time in the court of King Trump to be prophetic voices or even Christian voices.
Their President has been banging porn stars while married. They should call on their friend to repent and get right with God. But that might upset their friendship. So instead they'll let it all continue and put their friend's eternal soul in jeopardy, not to mention their own.
