Opinion | Why Trump Reigns as King Cyrus – The New York Times

ttaf supporter: it is not true that God will be displeased with you if you oppose ttaf on the basis of Jesus’s words.  You live in the New Covenant, and not the old.  The old is completely fulfilled…and thus the idea that some Cyrus “king” is what God wants is utter bullshit.

What God wants is what God has always wanted…and what is that?  If you have to ask, what kind of Christian do you really think you are?

Ask James…he will tell you.

“I have attended dozens of Christian nationalist conferences and events over the past two years. And while I have heard plenty of comments casting doubt on the more questionable aspects of Mr. Trump’s character, the gist of the proceedings almost always comes down to the belief that he is a miracle sent straight from heaven to bring the nation back to the Lord.

I have also learned that resistance to Mr. Trump is tantamount to resistance to God.This isn’t the religious right we thought we knew. The Christian nationalist movement today is authoritarian, paranoid and patriarchal at its core. They aren’t fighting a culture war. They’re making a direct attack on democracy itself.

They want it all. And in Mr. Trump, they have found a man who does not merely serve their cause, but also satisfies their craving for a certain kind of political leadership.”
