The late music legend John Lennon was quoted to have claimed in the 60's that his band, the Beatles, were "more popular than Jesus". The Beatles broke up a few years later.
In the 80's, there were evangelists all over the cable dial, and the supposed popularity of "televangelism" was mocked by the British trio, Genesis, fittingly enough, on 1992's "Jesus He Knows Me". The video set was a mock-up of Oral Roberts' weekly show, but singer Phil Collins cited other preachers as inspiration. Today, there's a handful of Christian networks, some of which are on cable, and others on satellite only around these parts.
It was written that "love of money is the root of all evil", and that has certainly been true. For the last seven years, however, evangelical Christians have been deceived by a man who now claims, for the second time in four years, to have done more for them than anyone else.
Who is he? Need you ask? Donald John Thurston Howell Trump.
As we've noted in this space a number of times in the past, Trump supposedly gave his life to Christ in a meeting with Focus on The Family founder Dr. James Dobson, a meeting likely facilitated by Mike Pence. Trump, however, has not completely embraced Christianity as you'd think. Oh, no. Oh, sure, he arranged for the capital of Israel to return to Jerusalem. Aside from that, he's had Dobson and so many other preachers bamboozled into thinking he was their champion, when he was anything but.
