Joshua Harris: Christian Support of Trump Is ‘Incredibly Damaging to Gospel, Church’ by JENNY ROSE SPAUDO for Charisma News

GNN Note – Is this a hit piece against the President being pumped in the Christian news world? It sure smells funny to me – what do you think? Being produced by those bastions of truth at Axios is not helping to change my mind.

Former pastor and purity advocate Joshua Harris recently opened up about his views of Christians supporting President Donald Trump—and they weren’t favorable.

He tells Mike Allen on HBO’s Axios that he believes evangelicals have made a mistake by aligning with Trump.

“I think it’s incredibly damaging to the gospel and to the church,” he says. “… I don’t think it’s going to end well. And I think you look back at the Old Testament and the relationship between the prophets and really bad leaders and kings, and oftentimes it’s not something you unwind because it’s actually in the Scriptures presented as God’s judgment on the false religion of the day.”

When asked if he believed Trump-supporting Christians were due for a judgment, Harris responded: “I think it is the judgment. It’s part of the judgment.

“… To have a leader like Trump, I think is in itself part of the indictment that this is the leader that you want and maybe deserve. That represents a lot of who you are.”

Harris offers this advice to the church a little over two months after publicly renouncing his Christian faith.

“I have undergone a massive shift in regard to my faith in Jesus,” Harris said on July 26. “The popular phrase for this is ‘deconstruction,’ the biblical phrase is ‘falling away.’ By all the measurements that I have for defining a Christian, I am not a Christian. Many people tell me that there is a different way to practice faith and I want to remain open to this, but I’m not there now.”
