I like Biden. A lot. I like Kamala Harris even more. But let’s be clear. I won’t ever fly a flag with their image on it. I would leave my party if my leadership asked me to die for them. I will never worship them. They are competent politicians who care about people, but nothing more. No political leader should ever be idolized.
I have noticed a disturbing trend on the right, and I’m not the only one. Pastor Franz Gerber of Wisconsin worried that many members of his congregation appeared to idolize Trump more than they worshipped Jesus.
“It seems like there are many evangelical Christians that are willing to die on the hill of supporting the Republican president, supporting Donald J Trump. And to me, that hill is not worth dying on. No matter who the candidate is, no matter who the individual is. To put all your hope into that individual is a dangerous road. Scripture would warn us against that.”
The sights of this month’s CPAC didn’t put him at ease.
