The word “evangelical” is a loosely based association which pollsters use to identify voting groups. Technically, 70% of America claims to be Christian based on census data, yet that can hardly be the case given the way way so many act which is the crux of this piece—it’s about frilly conversions as opposed to discipleship. I know plenty of Christians who have not bowed a knee to Trump and even Billy Graham’s granddaughter Jerushah Duford) and grandson (Boz Tchividjian) have come out swinging against Trump. My point being is that numbers are skewed because many people claim Christlikeness without an evidence. The same is also true on the left with cancel culture, doxxing, and their rampant tribalism. They too, look for a Messiah in politics and yet, none of that reflects Jesus. That said, I agree with your point at the end that, the Jews missed out on the Messiah because they sought a political savior and many are doing the same today. To drive your point home even further, I’m sure even I miss him at times because I’m looking for him to reflect what I believe. One thing I’m always assured of is that the more Jesus looks like me and believes as I do, the more certain I am that I’m worshipping a God of my own creation.
