Trump slunk off to Florida and Biden took the oath of office under a clear blue sky. Now evangelicals are left to figure out how to move forward in a world that, time and time again, has proven impervious to their fevered fantasies about God’s intervention on their behalf.
Evangelicals are used to dealing with predictions and “prophecies” that have not come true from Christ’s return, to Trump’s second term. They never turn back though or let facts stand in their way.
Evangelicals just dive into the next delusional fantasy and money-raising scam
Over and over again we’ve seen huge dis-confirming events that didn’t cause evangelicals to lose faith. Sex scandals, Jesus not returning when predicted, ‘End Times’ endlessly deferred, Trump losing.. but their leaders/preachers will always find the next money-making scam.
Don’t expect any of their leaders like Franklin Graham to say sorry for supporting Trump. He like all evangelicals will now return to their default and favorite posture: victims. That is where they are always most comfortable because that is where the really big money is: fundraising for the persecuted, ignored, poor little White Christians.
For evangelical ministries fundraising to save the world from liberals and stop “Them From TAKING OVER!” has always been where the big bucks are. Just ask Pat Robertson how he became a billionaire?
