A prominent Southern Baptist leader said the chief reason Christians voted for President Trump in 2016 was to stop Hillary Clinton from winning the White House.
“If Hillary Clinton had won this last election, we would have just participated in the last fully free election in the history of the United States,” Southern Evangelical Seminary President Richard Land said on the Todd Starnes Radio Show.
“They would have subverted the rule of law,” Land said of Clinton and her team. “They would have come after us. They would have weaponized the federal government against us.”
Land is one of several hundred evangelical leaders who are calling on the nation to engage in a special day of prayer for President Trump on June 2. Click here to read more about that.
“This president is under unprecedented siege,” Land said. “He’s not only taking on the Left, he’s taking on the Deep State. He’s taking on the entrenched government apparatus. He’s taking on the intelligence agencies.”
Land said the Trump presidency has turned out far better than he thought it would be. And he doesn’t understand why some evangelical leaders still oppose the administration.
“To not support Donald Trump when he was running against Hillary Clinton was to support Hillary Clinton,” he said. “That’s just a simple fact.”
“People can live in a fantasy land if they want, but in the real world if you do not help the lesser evil prevail you are part of helping the greater evil prevail,” Land added. “And Hillary Clinton is the greater evil — unless she’s running against Lucifer.”
