This week Evangelical magazine Christianity Today published a blistering op-ed, laying out with surgical precision, what many moderate and progressive Christians (and anyone with even a cursory understanding of the life and teachings of Jesus) have been saying for the past four years:
Donald Trump is not Christian.
He is immoral.
He is unfit.
He is criminal.
He needs to be impeached.
This is revelatory because it is so unprecedented.
CT never makes such a bold foray into politics and this is the story here.That they are doing so now, speaks to the specific, historic, malevolent threat represented here and the pivot point we find ourselves standing upon. It speaks to the reality that this moment of urgency transcends denomination and political party and religious worldview—that it is about the shifting bedrock of human decency that demands a choice by people of faith, morality, and conscience.
