I recently interviewed Aubrey Huff on my podcast Freedom One-On-One, which is a part of the Freedom First Network. Aubrey is a two time World Series Champion with the San Francisco Giants. He recently was disinvited from attending the 10 year anniversary of their World Series win for being outspoken in his conservative views.
Our conversation was quite fun, diving into a lot of different topics. The one that I wanted to highlight here was our discussion of the current state of the church.
The modern day Evangelical church has become quite feminized, focusing on felt needs, holding hands and having emotional experiences. Aubrey explained that this is a major problem why the church has been rendered ineffective to combat the Left's onslaught against our society.
We need masculine men who are ready to go to battle. We need our pastors to be strong leaders. That has been lost in the church today. Aubrey explained that Jesus was a man's man, mixing things up, throwing tables, calling people out to their faces. He wasn't afraid of confrontation or declaring the truth wherever it was needed.
This may be one of the reasons why there's been a big shift within Evangelicalism away from President Donald Trump. With President Barack Obama, he was empathetic. If there was a tragedy, he could cry and be empathetic. Trump is not like that. He's a strong, masculine leader that has the warrior's mindset of just doing what has to be done to get the job completed.
The other interesting thing about President Trump is that he's actually employing the same strategy that Jesus used against the scribes and Pharisees, except Trump is directing it toward the Mainstream Media and the Establishment Politicians. Think about it: They are both exposing the hypocrisy of the elites. Both Jesus and President Trump went straight to the people, bypassing the systems of their day, and exposing the Deep State for all to see and hear. They even both resorted to name-calling. So next time you hear someone complain about how Trump is name-calling and not being presidential, that might simply be because he's borrowing the same strategy that Christ used during his earthly ministry. If you don't believe me, go back and read Matthew 23.
You may not like Donald Trump, and that's fine. However, if your reasoning is because of his name-calling and exposing the #FakeNews & hypocritical politicians, you also have a problem with Jesus' behavior. You might need to check yourself.
