Michael Brown on Christ, Not Trump, Is the Solid Rock on Which We Stand

Donald Trump (Charisma Media archives)

Do you remember when Ann Coulter shocked Bill Maher’s audience in 2015, announcing that Donald Trump was the most likely of the declared Republican candidates to win the election? To the shock of many, she was right.

And do you remember when she wrote In Trump We Trust in 2016? That’s how deeply she believed that Trump was the man.

Today, she is one of Trump’s most vehement critics, to the point of crude insult. What happened?

The title of her book says it all. She put too much trust in a man.

That kind of trust belongs in God alone. Everyone else will disappoint us and fall short, one way or another. And the greater trust we put in someone to turn the tide of our nation, the more likely we are to be disappointed. Of that, you can be sure.

In May, Yahoo News reported that, “Coulter’s relationship with Trump has been strained for several months, largely because, she said, she is disappointed the president has not done more to stop illegal immigration. But a few days ago things took a turn for the worse when Coulter became enraged over the president’s renewed criticism of Sessions, who is seeking to be reelected to his old seat in the U.S. Senate in his home state of Alabama.”

As a result of Trump’s attacks on Sessions, Coulter blasted him as a “defective man” and worse—actually, much worse. This marks quite a dramatic change from the days of In Trump We Trust.

Obviously, there was a degree of tongue in cheek in the book title. And Coulter specializes in being a provocateur. But there was meant to be substance behind the title as well, enough to fill the pages of a book.

Now Ann Coulter doesn’t even know if she can cast a vote for President Trump’s reelection. She longer trusts in Trump.

But I bring up Coulter because there’s a lesson here for all of us who voted for Trump, especially those of us who are people of faith.

It’s great that he has kept many of his campaign promises. How many presidents manage to do that?

It’s great that he has not abandoned his evangelical base once elected, something which we’ve seen happen before. We help vote a president into office, then, once elected, he forgets about his voting basethat is, until the next election cycle. To his credit, Trump has not done this.

Trump has even done things that no president before him has done, including moving our embassy to Jerusalem and speaking at the annual pro-life rally in D.C.

But he is neither a savior nor a savior figure, and the more we trust in him, the more disappointed we will be. Donald Trump cannot save America. No one, outside of God Himself, possibly can.
