Former U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) took to X the day after Christmas to bash former President Donald Trump, claiming that Christians who support him “don’t understand” their faith.
“I’m going to go out on a NOT limb here: this man is not a Christian,” Kinzinger posted Tuesday, in response to Trump’s Truth Social Christmas message in which he told corrupt members of the “swamp” to “rot in hell.”
I’m going to go out on a NOT limb here: this man is not a Christian. If you are a Christian who supports him you don’t understand your own religion.— Adam Kinzinger (Slava Ukraini) 🇺🇸🇺🇦🇮🇱 (@AdamKinzinger) December 26, 2023
Trump is weak, meager, smelly, victim-ey, belly-achey, but he ain’t a Christian and he’s not “Gods man.” #trumpsmells pic.twitter.com/ZUn7NBuoq3
Kinzinger went on to assert, “If you are a Christian who supports him you don’t understand your own religion.”
“Trump is weak, meager, smelly, victim-ey, belly-achey, but he ain’t a Christian and he’s not ‘Gods man,’” the Trump critic added.
The former congressman has isolated himself from most of the GOP after becoming one of their most vocal haters of the Republican president, and serving on the House select committee that investigated the January 6 “insurrection.”
Kinzinger, the only Republican on the committee besides fellow disgraced former representative Liz Cheney, even sold autographed copies of the investigation panel’s full report for $100.
This election is a binary choice between Trump and Biden. The Lord has providentially placed us as citizens in a democratic republic with a duty to vote, so followers of Jesus regularly vote in elections where neither candidate teaches Sunday School in Bible-believing churches. Trump’s policies support religious liberty, many others are consistent with biblical principles, and many of his appointees are committed followers of Jesus Christ. Biden by contrast has been a fierce opponent to faithful Christians attempting to live their lives, raise their children, and run their businesses according to their faith.”
Perkins went on to compare Trump and Biden’s policies that impact Christians.
We also understand that this God-given mission is better facilitated by government leaders who respect truth and the Christian faith, not those who try to subvert it or penalize it as the present administration has done.
Comparing the policies and actions of the last two presidents on who has helped and who has hindered Christians in America, it is not even close. As one cabinet secretary quipped about President Trump, he may not be a Sunday school teacher, but he sure knew how to hire them. Biblical-centered faith prospered under Trump; it is now under attack. A Christian would be a fool to vote to continue the policies and practices that attack our ability to live our lives directed by our Bible-centered, Christian faith.
Despite attacks from Republican “Never Trumpers,” the former president is still the favorite to win the GOP primary, nearing 70 percent support.
