At least, that’s what the Republican presidential candidate told a group of conservative-to-the-extreme evangelicals on Thursday.
Here’s his comment:
“So go out and spread the word, and once I get in, I’ll do my thing that I do very well. And I figure it’s probably — maybe the only way I’m going to get into heaven, so I better do a good job.”
Faith without works is dead, but then, too, God’s grace is sufficient. It is beyond the ability of this blog to judge whether this particular political candidate is a candidate for heaven, but as an aside — though an important one — the group to which he was speaking has called homosexuality a “Marxist plot.” That kind of stance would run counter to the candidate’s suggestion that he bring the GOP into the land of truth and light in regard to sexual orientation. Piggy-backing off that important side, this is not the first time the candidate has attracted unsavory types, who, like their candidate, may or may not be heading for Glory.)
All that to say, if Donald J. Trump gets into heaven, maybe the rest of us can breathe a sigh of relief.
And thanks, Cynical, for the link.
Even an all-merciful God is scratching her head on this guy.
Or maybe those 2nd Amendment folks could hasten his journey.
By organizing politically, no doubt.
I alone can save you! Pay no attention to all that mammon. My gay billionaire. My transgender celebrity. Or any of my Log Cabin people. They’re not my apostles. You! You are my apostles. So you must go forth. Be fruitful and multiply! And spread the word! And the word is TRUMP! Write that down. Only TRUMP can save you. Only TRUMP can make religion safe again! Only TRUMP can protect you from the IRS! Only TRUMP can guarantee EVERYBODY gets into Heaven! Only TRUMP can…
Okay….so…maybe not everybody…….no Marxists or founders of ISIS or anything….
Okay… […☼…]…so that’s almost everybody.
Or he needs to be tricked into visiting hell per invitation of the devil to design a golf club with the false promise of quick release after completion.
