Donald Trump recently called Russell Moore, who is a well respected evangelical church leader, ethicist, and theologian:

“..a terrible representative of Evangelicals and all of the good they stand for. A nasty guy with no heart!”

Here’s the story from the Blaze:

Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, has repeatedly made it more than clear that he’s not a fan of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Moore most recently took aim at the “reality television moral sewage” that he said is “coming through all over our culture” during an appearance on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday, relating that dynamic back to what he sees happening in the 2016 presidential campaign.  …

What we have in the Donald Trump phenomenon … is an embrace of the very kind of moral and cultural decadence that conservatives have been saying for a long time is the problem,”…

Trump apparently didn’t appreciate that sentiment, as the candidate sent a tweet on Monday morning that took direct aim at Moore. He wrote,

Russell Moore is truly a terrible representative of Evangelicals and all of the good they stand for. A nasty guy with no heart!

Response: This demonstrates why I have very little hope for the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

It is very important for conservative Christians to vote for those who best reflect Biblical values and ethics. But who do you vote for when neither major candidate clearly represents traditional Christian standards and criticizes those who do? Vote for the least worse? Time to pray.

The choices before us demonstrate the folly of thinking that America’s problems can be solved through political means alone. Christians still need to vote but it is obviously time to pray for Spiritual change. Pray for America, we need revival, pray for a new awakening, pray for revival.               *Top
