President Donald Trump is not Jesus Christ.

He's not the savior of the world who came to Earth to atone for the human race's wrongs. He was not crucified. Bankruptcies aside, he has never come back from the dead. Trump is a man, nothing more.

Or is he? It seemed like that was the question residents of St. Louis County, Missouri, were supposed to ask when they looked up at a large billboard featuring a picture of Trump along with the phrases: "The Word Became Flesh…" and "Make the Gospel Great Again:"

Alternate text if image doesn't load

The ad, which has been taken down, appeared on an electronic billboard owned by DDI Media. The company wouldn't say who had paid for it, but an organization called "Make the Gospel Great again" has claimed credit.

"The Word became flesh" is a reference to the Book of John. Chapter 1, Verse 14 says that the Word (Jesus) took human form and "dwelt among us" on Earth.

So was the ad claiming that Trump and Jesus are one in the same? Some people weren't sure. "I didn't know what to make of it," local resident Sherri Chisholim told KMOV. "I didn't know what message it was trying to send but I felt like it was somewhat offensive, I didn't know if they were trying to equate Donald Trump to Jesus."

In a Facebook post today, Make the Gospel Great Again clarified that the "billboard IS NOT equating Jesus with" Trump. But the group does consider Trump to be a messenger sent from God:

[J]ust as King David liberated the faithful in his day, President Trump is doing this today through his protection of the unborn, defense of our land against foreign invaders and standing up for Israel. He surrounds himself with champions for Christian Rights –Mike Pence, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh. Compared to the disaster of a president we had in Obama, how is this not the "word become flesh" for Americans? As Christians we must not stand against God's will despite the persecution we face for doing so.


Poster Comment:

Sherri Chisholim told KMOV in St. Louis: “I didn’t know what to make of it. I didn’t know what message it was trying to send, but I felt like it was somewhat offensive. I didn’t know if they were trying to equate Donald Trump to Jesus.”

The entirety of John 1:14 reads, “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

John 1:1 states that the Word was with God at the beginning of the world and after it “became flesh,” it was known as Jesus. In John 1:29, John testifies for Jesus, saying, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” Some believe this billboard was meant to suggest that Trump is the second coming of Christ.

The Cult continues. No surprise they reveal they worship Trump like God.

Trump's supporters are completely nuts. I can’t take those wack jobs seriously (1 image)

I can understand that people like Trump, and are glad to have him, better than Bushes, Clintons, Obutthead, etc. As full honest disclosure, I voted for him .

But, this billboard is waaaaaaaaaaaaay over the top!!

And yes, among other things, " Jesus had better hair ".

I've said that all along - no difference between the Bush Bots of 2000 and the Trump fan boys of today.

“Truth is treason in the empire of lies.” - Ron Paul

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

You may have said it all along, but it wasn't true. I could barely stand Bush in 2000, and I was right. I have liked Trump all along. Two very different agendas.
