Jesus and Donald

Donald Trump says quite often that he is Presbyterian. Presbyterians, for centuries, have been followers of Jesus Christ. Here are just a handful of quotes from Jesus and Trump. I can’t help but notice the difference.

Jesus
God blesses those who are humble. Matthew 5:5

Donald
We don’t win anymore. We are going to win again. We are winners, not losers. We’re going to win so much, you’re going to beg me. You’re going to say, Mr. President, we’re so tired of winning, we can’t take it anymore. Please don’t win anymore…The American dream is dead, but we’re going to make it bigger and better and stronger than ever before. Donald Trump speech in Pensacola, Florida, January 13, 2016

Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure,it’s not your fault. Tweet by Donald Trump

Jesus
But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Luke 6:27

Donald
When someone crosses you, my advice is ‘Get Even!’ That is not typical advice, but it is real life advice. If you do not get even, you are just a schmuck! When people wrong you, go after those people because it is a good feeling and because other people will see you doing it. I love getting even. Think Big: Make It Happen in Business and Life, by Donald J. Trump (2008)

Jesus
Do not be anxious about tomorrow. Matthew 5:34

Donald
I’d say ISIS wants to get you. Washington Post

Jesus
Let the one who is without sin cast the first stone. John 8:7

Donald
Sgt. Berdahl’s a dirty, rotten no-good traitor. I’d fly that son-of-a-bitch back and drop him right over the top. Donald Trump speech in Pensacola, Florida, January 13, 2016

Jesus
For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul? Mark 8:36

Donald
I mean, part of the beauty of me is that I’m very rich. Brainy Quotes

Jesus
You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. Matthew 5:38-39

Donald – On trying to name his favorite Bible verse:

Well, I think many…You know when we get into the Bible I think many, so many. And “an eye for an eye,” you can almost say that. It’s not a particularly nice thing, but you know when you look at what’s happening to our country, I mean, you see what’s going on with our country how people are taking advantage of us and how they scoff at us and laugh at us and laugh in our face and they’re taking our jobs, they’re taking our money, they’re taking our — you know, they’re taking the health of our country. And we have to be very firm and we have to be very strong and we can learn a lot from the Bible, that I can tell you. NewsRadio WHAM 1180 interview, April 14, 2016

For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. Jesus, Luke 6:45

  1. That last one, Denise. THAT is the kicker. May God lead us to the polls to help us vote so the people who can lead us the best are in charge.

  2. Yes, Joy. What a crazy election year this is going to be. (And I know God will have mercy…)
