In fact, the putrid stench of Trumps partisan politics is what may get people to wake up and and want real change that’s good for the American `people. You can only want to get rid of what’s bad … More Is Evangelicalism Fading Away Because Of Its Hypocrisy?
If Jesus bent down and washed the feet of the disciples to show us who God is, why do current christians not follow that example?
