The charge of being a hypocrite if you support the president is often thrown at many Bible-believing Americans. But hypocrisy means to intentionally deceive someone—who I am on Sunday is not who I am on Monday. We are not dealing with hypocrisy here. So what are we dealing with?
There is a very troubling trend in the evangelical church as a whole. Today, the truth is often neglected, watered-down, or avoided altogether in the hope of not offending members and building a large audience. Judgment is never mentioned, repentance is never sought and sin is often excused. We want to build a church rather than break a heart; be politically correct rather than biblically correct; coddle and comfort rather than stir and convict.
