Bishop of Liverpool says Evangelical support for President Trump is not justified!

The Right Rev’d Paul Bayes, Bishop of Liverpool has criticised conservative USA Evangelical Christians for their “uncritical support” of President Donald Trump.

Bishop Bayes speaking to  The Guardian News  said that he did not think it “justifiable” for Belivers to support “a system that marginalises the poor”.

He further stated that: “Some of the things that have been said by religious leaders seem to collude with a system that marginalises the poor, a system which builds walls instead of bridges, a system which says people on the margins of society should be excluded, a system which says we’re not welcoming people any more into our country.”

“Whenever people say those kinds of things, they need to be able to justify that they’re saying those things as Christians, and I do not believe it’s justifiable.”

He however also pointed out that he recognises that not all Evangelicals in the US were supporters of President Trump, stating “many, many Christians are trying to proclaim the gospel as we’ve received it, even if that means political leaders have to be challenged.”

But, he still stresses the fact that, “some quite significant so-called Evangelical leaders are uncritically supporting people in ways that imply they are colluding or playing down the seriousness of things which in other parts of their lives (they) would see as really important.”

Bishop Bayes is currently on a sabbatical until March but went on to say: “If people want to support right-wing populism anywhere in the world, they are free to do so. The question is, how are they going to relate that to their Christian faith?”

  9. I am the manager of JustCBD Store label (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently seeking to develop my wholesale side of company. I really hope that anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance ! I thought that the most suitable way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape stores and cbd retail stores. I was really hoping if anybody at all could recommend a trusted website where I can purchase CBD Shops Business Data I am currently examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the most suitable selection and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
