n our founding documents, Billy Graham explains that Christianity Today will help evangelical Christians interpret the news in a manner that reflects their faith. The impeachment of Donald Trump is a significant event in the story of our republic. It requires comment…
The typical CT approach is to stay above the fray and allow Christians with different political convictions to make their arguments in the public square, to encourage all to pursue justice according to their convictions and treat their political opposition as charitably as possible. We want CT to be a place that welcomes Christians from across the political spectrum, and reminds everyone that politics is not the end and purpose of our being. We take pride in the fact, for instance, that politics does not dominate our homepage.
That said, we do feel it necessary from time to time to make our own opinions on political matters clear—always, as Graham encouraged us, doing so with both conviction and love. We love and pray for our president, as we love and pray for leaders (as well as ordinary citizens) on both sides of the political aisle.
Let’s grant this to the president: The Democrats have had it out for him from day one, and therefore nearly everything they do is under a cloud of partisan suspicion. This has led many to suspect not only motives but facts in these recent impeachment hearings. And, no, Mr. Trump did not have a serious opportunity to offer his side of the story in the House hearings on impeachment.
But the facts in this instance are unambiguous: The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents. That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral.
Don’t consider myself any sort of Trump Humper, but in response to your post. … Did you read the complete article? Your use of Billy Graham condoning this is wrong. This “magazine” is not in line with mainstream Christianity bo. . I’m wanting to know why your side was in such a rush and now wanting to delay the impeachment? I often wonder who’s pulling pelosis strings?
c/p - We are endlessly derided and ridiculed by the left. Our values are mocked, our faith spurned. We heard the disparaging comments and relentless insults during the impeachment hearings levelled at our representatives for supposedly shirking their constitutional duties, spreading Russian propaganda, and lying. Democrats were taking the moral high ground while Republicans were defending a criminal. Democrats, we were repeatedly admonished, did not want to impeach the President but he left them no choice, forcing them to vote “yes.”
ahhhhhh, I guess the dems new found love of the constitution will make them enforce “shall not be infringed” & current immigration laws?
somebody better tell the toothless hag in the black dress that there is no impeachment until AFTER a senate hearing, so technically Trump HAS NOT been impeached. btw, if it was such a solemn event for the dems why did they cheer & clap after the 1st article was passed?
and it’s a good thing the WP is remaining impartial
c/p - Mark Galli might be the talk of leftwing media today (which, I do not believe was his goal in writing). But tomorrow they will view him as just another bigoted, hateful, homophobic, misogynist who opposes women’s rights and believes in an antiquated book.
Then, let’s have honest conversations with our brothers and sisters who differ with us, starting with this: “Please share your perspective with me. I want to understand where you’re coming from.”
Based in the suburbs of Chicago, Christianity Today aims to be the voice of evangelicals, providing news and commentary through its monthly magazine and website. Many evangelical leaders and high-profile pastors are among the magazine’s 80,000 paid print subscribers, and its advertisements regularly feature major evangelical institutions.
In the hours after the editorial was published, “Christianity Today” was trending on Twitter, and the magazine’s website briefly crash, apparently because of a flood of readers. Friday morning, “ET” began to trend, after Trump tweeted that “I won’t be reading ET again!” — an apparent typo.
c/p - Christianity Today said it’s time to call a spade a spade. The spade is this—Christianity Today has been used by the left for their political agenda. It’s obvious that Christianity Today has moved to the left and is representing the elitist liberal wing of evangelicalism.
maybe the Pelosi Catholics will read their Bibles & denounce baby killing.
Beware false prophets… That magazine is not Billy’s. But I’m glad to see you are reading up on Christianity. Put that mean old pastor in a box and bury that horrible memory of a false Christian from your youth. It’s a shame some use a Church to scam and abuse innocents, I’m sure there is a special place in Hell for them.
I’m proud of my Children and family. I’m proud to be an American citizen. I’m proud Hillary did not win the election. I’m proud to provide food for my family.
Hope you have a blessed Christmas! I miss our old frequent disagreements. Life is Good!
