On December 19, Mark Galli, the out-going editor of Christianity Today (CT), wrote an editorial supporting the impeachment of President Trump.
CT was started by Billy Graham in 1956.
There was a swift response from many Christian leaders, including Franklin Graham, who felt compelled to reveal that his father had voted for Donald Trump in 2016, and would have been greatly “disappointed” by the editorial.
I have subscribed to CT for decades because it was the preeminent faith-based magazine in America.
But I’ve cancelled my subscription–with hope.
Darkness descended on the United States last week when the U.S. House of Representatives impeached President Trump on a party-line vote (with four Democrat defections).
It happened–despite any evidence of a crime–to nullify the votes of 63 million Americans in the 2016 election. It was a sad day for truth, democracy, fair elections and love and light.
Merry Christmas, America.
But the ugliness of this sin or all sins combined do not rank as the greatest power in the universe. This week we celebrate the awesome reality that will ultimately triumph in history.
The Incarnation of Jesus Christ: God’s Love & Light.
This week the U.S. House of Representatives will likely vote to impeach the 45th president of the United States on bogus charges and no crimes–a horrible misuse of our Constitution.
Impeachment is not a legislative process–it is a political one. Everything we hate about politics will be on display by the Democratic Party on Thursday, December 19.
It will be one of the worst days in the history of our glorious republic.
Over the next two weeks I want to talk about the two greatest realities in human life. One is agonizingly negative–the ugliness of sin. The other is gloriously positive–the magnificence of God’s love.
Let’s discuss the bad news first.
