Evangelicals are hoping that President Donald Trump brings about the apocalypse.

Evangelicals are hoping that President Donald Trump brings about the apocalypse. According to Newsweek, many see God using Trump to destroy the world and bring about a time where Jesus rules the world. For this reason, many evangelicals are willing to turn a blind eye to his revolting, thuggish, and piggish ways.

Many evangelical Christians believe that Trump was chosen by God to usher in a new era, a part of history called the “end times.” Beliefs about this time period differ, but it is broadly considered the end of the world, the time when Jesus returns to Earth and judges all people.

Evangelicals believe Trump chose God to be President through the electoral college.

“For his evangelical supporters, there's a sense that Trump's unlikely election to the presidency proves that he has been chosen by God,” Young told Newsweek. “He shouldn't have won the election, so the thinking goes, so the fact that he did—and that victory came only via the Electoral College, no less—just demonstrates that only God could make it happen.”

Evangelicals really, really, want Jews to become Christians.

“Evangelicals view themselves as sympathetic to Israel, but the underlying belief is motivated by a desire to see the Jewish people ‘turn to Jesus,'” Blake Chastain, a former evangelical who hosts a podcast on evangelicalism, told Newsweek.

It is really sad that the church does not understand the deeds of the good news of the gospel, or it would be focusing on ending war and poverty, and setting the prisoners free. Instead it beats people down with the strict letter of the law, totally missing the spirit of compassion and forgiveness meant to be behind it all.

That is where the Evangelicals get it wrong, it is the Jews that will preach during the end times according to Revelation, not the Christians. So Judaism will be the ultimate preachers of the end times. Christianity will be proven to be the false teachings with the false prophet at it's head.

I'm actually they don't think Trump is the "Antichrist." :D

And the rest of the bible? There are simply different gradations of madness.

The Book of Revelations is clearly the ravings of a mad man
