Lots of Evangelicals Like Donald Trump For More Than Just His Judicial Nominees

It’s been suggested that white evangelical Christians don’t really support Donald Trump as a person; they just voted for him to get the “pro-life” judges he promised. But according to writer Katherine Stewart in the New York Times, despite the multiple marriages and the adultery and the paying off of his mistresses (not to mention his knee-jerk policies-by-tweet), plenty of evangelicals really do like him for his “style.”

In fact, some have likened Trump to the biblical King Cyrus.

The month before the 2018 midterms, a thousand theaters screened “The Trump Prophecy,” a film that tells the story of Mark Taylor, a former firefighter who claims that God told him in 2011 that Donald Trump would be elected president.

At a critical moment in the film, just after the actor representing Mr. Taylor collapses in the flashing light of an epiphany, he picks up a Bible and turns to the 45th chapter of the book of Isaiah, which describes the anointment of King Cyrus by God. In the next scene, we hear Mr. Trump being interviewed on “The 700 Club,” a popular Christian television show.

As Lance Wallnau, an evangelical author and speaker who appears in the film, once said, “I believe the 45th president is meant to be an Isaiah 45 Cyrus,” who will “restore the crumbling walls that separate us from cultural collapse.”
