10 Reasons Why Donald Trump is a Modern Day “Anti-Christ”

awkward-moment-donald-trumpUnless you’re a rabid Donald Trump supporter, there’s probably a pretty good chance that you’re ashamed he’s the presidential frontrunner for one of our nation’s largest political parties. Even a few of my Republican friends have begun questioning the sanity of their own party over Trump’s continued rise within the ranks of the GOP.



Now, when I say “anti-Christ” I don’t literally mean the devil – though I’m sure some might disagree. What I do mean is that he’s probably the most dangerous presidential candidate we’ve seen reach this level of legitimacy. Furthermore, nothing about him represents actual “Christian values.” In a lot of glaring and obvious ways, he is anti-Christian. Here are 10 reasons why I think he can be considered a modern day “anti-Christ.”

1. There’s something called the Seven Deadly Sins (Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed, Sloth). Looking at Trump, he’s most definitely prideful, flat-out arrogant. Considering he’s a billionaire I think it’s safe to say that puts him under gluttonous and greedy. Then he’s most definitely angry – which is largely tied to his arrogance and pride. Clearly he’s envious of other people, which is why he lashes out at them so much in his angry tirades. He seems to think that the best way to build himself up is by tearing other people down. Next up is lust, which as someone who’s committed at least one affair and is on his third marriage, he clearly fits in this category as well. The only area he might not fit into is “sloth,” though he does have a rather lazy vocabulary.

2. I’m not sure how pandering to racism, hate, bigotry, fear and intolerance qualifies someone to be “Christ-like.” Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m not sure Jesus Christ would be on board with the whole “ban Muslims from coming to the U.S. and track the ones who are here while calling Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals” rhetoric on which Trump has based a large part of his campaign and rose to ridiculous levels of popularity.

3. Remember that time he found a “bright side” to 14 Americans being killed by two terrorists? You should, because it actually happened.

4. Then there’s his belief that we should be targeting – as in killing- the families of terrorists. Because nothing says “I’m a Christian” quite like a targeted bombing of a home potentially filled with children of people who might happen to be related to a terrorist.

5. And we definitely can’t forget when he mocked the physical disabilities of a reporter. Because that’s really classy of someone who wants to be President of the United States. Very Christ-like.



6. In November, Trump tweeted out an incredibly inaccurate – and blatantly racist – graphic that was clearly meant to paint African-Americans as blood-thirsty murderers. Then he defended the tweet by telling Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly that he shouldn’t be expected to fact check everything.

7. Let’s also not forget that Trump’s rise to a superstar among many conservatives was built on racism by way of the “birther” nonsense he pushed for many years, casting doubts about President Obama’s birth certificate. A very recent past he’s now too much of a coward to talk about.

8. Then there was that time when he was told about two of his supporters beating a homeless Latino man and he responded by saying his supporters are very “passionate.”

9. I think it’s also important to point out Trump’s long history of sexism that includes calling women “dogs,” “pigs,” “fat” and a pregnant woman “disgusting” for taking a break from a deposition to pump breast milk to feed her baby – among many other deplorable insults. I’m sure all these insults would really be Jesus-approved.

10. There’s nothing truly “Christian” about him – at all. He’s rude, arrogant, greedy, a liar, a bully, racist, bigoted and hateful. He’s cheated on at least one wife, has been divorced multiple times and lately seems to be in a bit of a “bromance” with a psychopathic murderer in Vladimir Putin. What is there that’s “Christian” about Donald Trump? Please, by all means, tell me. 

Naturally, this list could have been much longer but I thought I’d keep it focused on some of his bigger indiscretions over the last few months which are antithetical to the teachings of Jesus Christ and everything he stood for (whether you believe in him or not).

The bottom line is, it’s absurdly hypocritical for a party that often tries to champion itself as the party that represents “Christian values” to have someone like Donald Trump as their overwhelming presidential frontrunner – someone who isn’t the least bit Christian in pretty much any way publicly imaginable.

    Why don’t people see this. It is so obvious !!! He is not of God therefore he is of Satan.

    • Jason Traxler

      And you are God??? Other than your self-righteousness, what gives you the authority to judge others? The subject article was written by a self-avowed liberal. Why would anyone give credence to his opinion unless they were also a liberal progressive. And, from my personal observation, liberal progressives rewrite the word of God to justify their agenda. Talk about being satanic.

        As a person with no political standing and a completely unbiased opinion towards basically everything except.. you know.. really disgusting illegal things. I gotta say, all that man ever does is lie out his ass and use hatred as a tool to pull in voters. His capaign has been centered around the same bs one-liners repeated over and over along with some demeaning insults. As his character stands someone like Trump is the last person I would ever want to put my trust into. This is a man who could start a war in drag you right into the middle of it. I mean.. just listen to him talk. The man is insane. And the only time he makes any sense is when he is shouting our some old one-liners topped by some more demeaning imsults.

        Since Hillary is the unchallenged QUEEN of lies (Benghazi, health care, snipers, being poor, EMAIL…) , I think she has him topped! You have to stay home not don’t vote out of your high “principles.”

  • ANDREW THUITA

    Thanks for a thought provoking post. Though Trump is said to be getting the evangelical vote, the term ‘evangelical’ has largely lost its significance to a point where pastors and leaders have vacated the label, as it no longer describes Folks who adhere to Christian

    principles. The term evangelical today is more accurately ralate to white folks in the Bible belt culture, who might be drunk or stonned right now, and have not been to church since vacation Bible school when they were little. Many would probably cheer at a Trump rally white mobs yell stereo typical racist epithets at dark haired or dark skinned protestors, like “go back to Mexico”, or “go get a job”. Trump has already said that he could kill someone and still not lose support.

    The insukarity and reficuloudness of the GOP primary seems to reward extremity and in civility and political incorrecteness and pandering to anger and populism. The GOP primary primary will reward and not punish Trump if he showed up hooded as a KKK, let’s hope sanity returns in the fall general election season.

    Gee, where else have I heard a controversal politician referred to as the “anti-christ”? Oh yeah. 2008. Barack Obama. You lot are so pathetic.

    • Yaiba Kamikaze

      Well there’s a reason for that. I have no real opinion on the matter. But you should Google “Barrack Obama is Osama bin Laden” I did find that they look exactly the same and a lot of other interesting details abut the possibilities. That was one reason. On the other hand a large amount of people would tell you that all politicians and famous celebrities are satan worshiping conspirators. As for Trump he is an accuser. A liar. An opposer. And shows to have no Christian morals whatsoever. A.k.a Lucifer Himself. He’s running his office like Hitler did in Germany. But of course I could care less just figured I would disqus the reasons as to why. Pun obviously intended.

    • SmithDoc

      the funny thing though, is that Barack Obama, after 8 years in office, is clearly not the antichrist. but trump? i mean, i’m being humorous here, but yeah: it’s possible. the man has no morality, an he is also incredibly popular and increasingly influential, appealing to the masses through his sinful, excessive behavior – he prizes money, women and power, while somehow seducing many christians with his rhetoric. he represents everything that jesus was against.

  • Yaiba Kamikaze

    He’s the prince of lies. The accuser. A beautiful Archangel who became God’s one true opposer. This man is running a campaign based on lies and insults. He uses racism and hatred to pull in voters. He lies about what it is he can accomplish. He flat out insults anyone who tries to disagree with him. I never trusted politics in the first place. But I mean come on. This man is insane. You’re only voting for him because you’re either racist, like veterans, heard him call Hillary crooked, heard him saying hed make america great, or because you’d vote for anyone who was all over your social media with their propaganda. Have you heard what comes out of this man’s mouth? You people are ridiculous for wanting to be lead by a man like Trump.

  • Eg Kbbs

    You got me thinking – where are the tribulationists proclaiming that Trump is the antichrist. Usually when there is a charismatic figure for prez, they get a lot of press (remember when Ronald Wilson Reagan was 666?).

    Yet with Trump inflaming the lower passions of the masses, arising out of political obscurity, out of the sea (NYC), etc. there isn’t a whisper. Add being in rough economic times, the clock running out on the generation seeing the re-establishment of Israel seeing the rapture (often used to predict the rapture by the 80s), current world tribulation, etc.

  • Rous Roepke

    Has anyone considered seeing what he can do before castigating him?
