What you are doing is bowing before a man who mocks the Lord and does not repent. God created Judas and placed him in a place as well. Do you want to be on Judas’s team? Why should you want to be on Nebuchadnezzar’s team? Nebuchadnezzar got there through bloody conquest and if Trump is Nebuchadnezzar then you are an exile and slave. But when did Trump conquer Israel? When did he conquer America? He did not.

You are just, again, trying to justify your support for a man you know to be godless by claiming God has a plan for him. In the process, you are using your clout in the evangelical community to lead others to Trump to bow before him. You have put your politics ahead of your God and worship your idols. You are leading others astray and as a preacher you will be judged far more harshly than those you led astray.

To claim that a man who mocks God and claims no need to repent is a leader Christians should rally to is damning and you know it. That is why you have struggled so hard to compare yourself, even just privately in the mirror, to Daniel. You should be ashamed of yourself.
