Jesus versus Trump: a clear distinction

For those who still think that Trump represents conservatism and the part of America that is considered Evangelical or born again Christian, consider the following quotes from both Jesus and Trump.  You can be the judge:

Foreigners

Jesus: ” And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd.”  (John 10:16)

Trump: “I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me –”

Greed

Jesus: “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions” (Luke 12:15)

Trump: “The point is, you can never be too greedy.”

War

Jesus: “Blessed are the peace makers.” (Matthew 5:9)

Trump: “There’s nobody bigger or better at the military than I am,”

Violence

Jesus: ” But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.”  (Matthew 5:32)

Trump: “… I’d like to punch him in the face, I’ll tell ya.”   –  “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s, like, incredible.”

Enemies

Jesus: “But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, ” (Luke 6:35)

Trump: “There may be somebody with tomatoes in the audience. If you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously. Okay? Just knock the hell — I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees.”

Wealth

Jesus: “Truly, I say to you, only with difficulty will a rich person enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.” (Matthew 19:23-24).  –   “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” (Matthew 8:20)

Trump: “The beauty of me is that I’m very rich.”

Children

Jesus: “Let the children come to me… theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.” (Matthew 19:14)

Trump: “I like kids. I mean, I won’t do anything to take care of them. I’ll supply funds, and she’ll take care of the kids.”

Ego
Jesus:  “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. ..”  (Matthew 5:5)

Trump:  “Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure,it’s not your fault.”
Any questions…?
