Far more important question: can Evangelicals rebuild their reputation and influence in a post-Trump America?

Yes we should have been out preaching marching and holding rallies for Christ yet we didn't we did these things for a man and now our end will be WORSE than if we hadn't gotten the reprieve. It would have been better for us to have had Hilary and received due judgement than to get a reprieve and squander it. Now we really will being getting judged.

The late and truly wonderful Bible teacher J. Vernon McGee once said: "I have never voted for someone that I liked, I have always voted to keep someone else from getting into office". This is what I did when I voted for our President the first time. Then I was actually rather surprised at his accomplishments as time went by. Being a Jewish believer, I was very pleased with his treatment of Israel. Then when the "Pandemic" hit, I watched his daily updates. He handled them very well. He was trying to keep the hopes of the country up and quite honestly I was surprised by his humility. He was very honest in the fact that this certainly was not his area of expertise. I believe that this is the bottom line: HE IS THE RESISTANCE. HE IS THERE TO KEEP OUR COUNTRY FROM BECOMING COMMUNIST. I truly wish all of us could see that. Those folks that call themselves Christians and then said that they couldn't vote for him because he was not holy righteous and pure: I think, made a huge mistake. Only Jesus is is holy righteous and pure. Our President is a "Good King", not a perfect king. In the scriptures there were good kings and bad kings. How many of those good kings were holy righteous and pure? I hope that God is gracious to us and keeps him in office. If not, we will be heading toward the very darkest years in American history. For you naysayers against the President, I wonder how you will justify your position when that happens??? And it will happen if the Left gets in.

You are correct in your analysis, and people want to see and hear what they want to. See 2 Timothy 4:3-5. People believed they saw flying saucers in 1932 after an Orsen Wells radio program. It's called mass hysteria! People are not understanding what they are seeing because 1) they don't know the process, and 2) they are looking through cloudy perspective. Would we believe Jesus was risen with only the word of Mary, a woman? I can tell you the story would have stopped there 2000 years ago had it not been for the approximately 500 people who could attest to it. Now, put that in context with today's issue. Lastly, we should wait and see where Biden stands on Isreal, and just because there might be disagreements doesn't mean he's anti-Israel. Isreal is being led by a man with political ambition like every other nation and we need to keep that in mind. God is in control. Question is, no matter the outcome, who U gonna B?

Dear God, please make Trump retire to Mar-A-Lago, rarely heard or seen again by the public. Amen. (What a miracle this would be!)

You are not a leftist stay the course regardless of the obstacles or criticism : "Keep cautioning against putting too much trust in a person, specifically Donald Trump. Admonish anyone misusing the Bible in their support of the president, or making exaggerated statements about the elections (like the claim that Trump actually won by the biggest landslide in electoral history). Continue telling the saints to be more temperate in our rhetoric. Sorry I hope you don't mind, I took the liberty of paraphrasing some your comments. Now a bit of history on me, I too voted for Trump in both elections, even though like a lot of Christians I was put off by Trump's boorish behavior. Plus I certainly didn't want a Biden presidency. However, I am alarmed at the idolatry (regarding Trump) that has consumed so many of my fellow Christians. At what point do we stop idolizing a political position, regard them as anointed by God, and speak of them as a prophesied savior come to save America? When I point this out to them, I find they get hostile and defensive stating, "We do not worship or idolize President Trump." They just flat out refuse to acknowledge it. We, are the children of God, we know that no matter who inhabits the White House, God sits on His throne and in control. Therefore, our allegiance is only to God, not any man or political party.

When Trump rose to power as the leader of the right, I could not help but remember Simon bar Kochba who led the final revolt of the Jews against their globalist rulers: the Romans. Bar Kochba was very a strong, charismatic man; a natural leader who captured the heart and soul of the Jewish people. As a leader, he had gained somewhat of a superhuman aura about him. After stunning victories against the Romans, Rabbi Akiva declared bar Kochba the Messiah and the Jews elevated him to that level. Christians outright rejected that status, but many rabbis and others supported the claim believing bar Kochba would, Make Judea Great Again by freeing them from their globalist oppressors. Bar Kochba organized a very large army and fought in rebellion against Rome for almost six years, four of which, there was an independent Jewish state. In the end he was betrayed by insiders who conspired with the globalist Romans, and the rest is history until 1948. I support Trump, and will continue to support Trump as long as his actions are worthy of support. I will not elevate him to a place where he is deemed our only hope or salvation, lest our end becomes like unto those who followed bar Kochba. God has used Trump. If God chooses to continue using him in the same capacity that he has, praise God. If God is changing the direction of things, praise God. Either way, the victory is the Lord’s, whatever happens. If we lose the whole world, it is to gain heaven and it will work for the purification and redemption of the saints. Salvation is of the Lord.
