Paula White is the chair women of our nation’s evangelical advisory board. However, she is considered a charlatan by some top religious figures. She tells her followers to send her money and to say a prayer for Donald Trump. I bet you right now, there is at least one evangelical somewhere saying a prayer for Donald Trump. I don’t think that prayer is worth the saliva they waste saying it.
Unquestionably, Paula White has been given one of the most important theological jobs in the country. Does she deserve this position though?
Donald Trump and religion is a peculiar combination. Despite his constant embrace of sin, the evangelicals love him. In fact, Trump worship is more like a cult. Cult is an offensive word, but it fits perfectly here. A cult is a group bounded by a devotion to a leader. Does that not perfectly describe the evangelical adoration for Donald Trump?
Robert Jeffress, a pastor at the First Baptist Church in Dalls, says that Trump is BETTER than a candidate that “embodies the teaching of Jesus” because Trump embodies the biblical “strongman” in government.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump has packed the White House with guys from Goldman-Sachs.The only god to any of them is green and folded in their wallets. During the election, Trump was being sued in two different class actions, one for sexually assaulting women and another for stealing tuition money from little high school students. He also cheats on his wife with porn stars. If that is a messenger from god, I’d assume not listen.
If you ask any of these evangelicals why they support Trump, despite his sins, they will say something about forgiveness. They say he found God and has changed his ways. That argument has more holes than a pool table. What about Hillary Clinton, who devoted her life to helping women and children. The Clinton Foundation scores the highest rating on charity watchdog lists, PoliticalHaze. As much as you might want to hate it, her charity does so much good.
Still, many evangelicals supported Trump over Hillary. I hope that evangelicals don’t think that Jesus would call Haiti a “shithole”. Or that Jesus’ budget would slash charitable giving by 40%, TheRealNews.
Like anyone, evangelicals have political needs, that Trump, as all republicans, campaign on. Evangelicals think Trump might overturn Roe v. Wade, they like his deregulation, lowering taxes, and keeping those immigrants out.
Trump’s Paula White pick, to head his “evangelical advisory board” is controversial. Granted, she is pretty with blonde hair, a carbon copy of most of the women that our president lusts after, but she is also accused of being a scam artist of the most disgusting kind. She puts a price on divinity.
Christian author Erick Erickson claims
“The President of the United States putting a heretic on stage who claims to believe in Jesus, but does not really believe in Jesus, risks leading others astray […] I’d rather a Hindu pray on Inauguration Day and not risk the souls of men, than one whose heresy lures in souls promises of comfort only to damn them in eternity […]”
Just a few weeks ago White proposed to her followers
“Each January, I put God first and honor Him with the first of our substance by sowing a first fruits offering of one month’s pay,” White writes. “That is a big sacrifice, but it is a seed for the harvest I am believing for in the coming year. And God always provides! Every year many others join us and sow a month’s pay, a week’s pay, others give a day’s pay, but everyone gives their best- The results are miraculous!” RawStory
Paula White is asking her followers to give a month’s pay. Trump’s spiritual advisor also tells her followers that giving money in the beginning of the year is important because it sets them off on the right foot. Conversely, according to White, followers who don’t send her money could suffer divine consequences.
A charlatan such as Paula White, needs authority to maintain her facade. Why would anyone give her money or let alone, listen to her spiritual advice, if they didn’t think she spoke the word of God? For one thing, according to Paula White, she speaks for God.
“When I was just eighteen years old, the Lord gave me a vision that every time I opened my mouth and declared the Word of the Lord, there was a manifestation of His Spirit where people were either healed, delivered, or saved. When I shut my mouth, they fell off into utter darkness and God spoke to me and said ‘I called you to preach the gospel”.
Plus, Donald Trump provides all the authority she needs. Most, if not all, of Paula White’s congregation support Trump. The fact that she was chosen by God AND Trump, is enough divine authority for her followers to empty their bank accounts.
Amazing how far reaching Trump’s scam is.
