A portion of American Christianity is:  Capitalism  Nationalism  White supremacy  Worshiping wealth (prosperity doctrine)  Imperialism/colonialism This is why many evangelicals for Trump view Trump as a savior or “blessed by God.” They don’t actually worship Jesus, and instead worship the above five as “god,” so Trump who embodies all five, is seen as “blessed” and… Continue reading Replace harmful theology with liberation
