If you keep surrounding yourself with people giving you shitty advice, you are going to make bad choices.
No one has exemplified this like Donald J. Trump. From selecting Mike Pence as his running mate to Mike Pompeo to John Bolton to Nimrata Haley, and especially his bimbo daughter Ivanka and her rootless urban cosmopolitan husband Jared Kushner, Trump repeatedly selected awful people to advise him and at most every turn those advisers seemed to undercut what he was elected to do.
High on that list is crackpot bimbo prosperity “pastor” Paula White, or Paula Michelle White-Cain. She has the clumsy last name because while she was born Paula Furr, and doesn’t that sound like a 70s porn star name, she was married to a guy named Randy White (after divorcing her first husband Dean Knight after getting knocked up as a teen but after her “conversion”) but she then subsequently divorced him and married a man named Jonathan Cain, thus “White-Cain” is apparently her legal last name. Reading between the lines, she and her second husband divorced their spouses around the same time and were married a year later so I suspect they “knew” each other beforehand. She appears to have had another relationship with crackpot “healer” Benny Hinn before marrying Cain, a member of the band Journey and she was “in a relationship” with him while he was still married.
Did you get all that? I won’t bother getting into the idea of a woman being a pastor of a Christian church, I beat that dead horse to a pulp for many years, but not only is that a problem but her theology is sketchy as hell, she is kind of a whore who has been divorced twice, married thrice and has spread her legs for who knows how many men. She should have been ex-communicated a long time ago but instead she is a “pastor”. What is worse, she is well known as the “Spiritual Adviser” to Donald Trump. As his “Spiritual Adviser”, she provides insights like this:
The Jerusalem Post crows about White-Cain and her Chosen People fetish….
During her time in the White House, as chair of the president’s evangelical advisory board, she was arguably the most influential woman in the Trump administration. She and the president’s Orthodox Jewish advisers heavily influenced the president’s policies on Israel and the Middle East. White worked closely with Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, former US ambassador to Israel David Friedman and Special Representatives for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt and Avi Berkowitz – all Orthodox Jews.https://archive.vn/2hOaJ
Oy vey. More…
Former US President Donald Trump’s closest evangelical adviser, Florida pastor Paula White, believes Christians should learn from Jews rather than try to convert them, so much so that she is now in Israel studying Torah with Orthodox Jews.
“Paul [the apostle] made very clear that God extended his love to the Gentiles, but he did not take something from the Jews and tell us to go back and course correct or convert them,” White told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday, as she sat outside the King David Hotel. “I do not want to convert Jews or send them to [live in] Israel for the rapture. The plan for salvation for the Jews is God’s.”
You don’t have to be a Bible scholar to know that is bullshit. Most of the New Testament is taken up with the early Christian converts, Jewish converts from Judaism to Christianity, evangelizing Jews. The Apostles weren’t going to sub-Saharan African tribes or Eskimos, they were preaching to Jews about converting to Christianity. On the other hand, the worst persecutors of the early Christians were not Romans or purple-haired atheist vegans, they were Jews who were jealously protecting their gig from those who sought to convert other Jews to Christianity.
Modern Jews haven’t changed much when it comes to Christians, so when people say stuff like this:
“There is a new movement of Christians and Orthodox Jews coming together,” White told the Post. “We need each other. It is vitally important we continue to build these bridges.”
You need to understand that this “bridge” only works to the advantage of Jews. They don’t want Christians to evangelize them but they are happy to take money from saps who read the Scofield Bible, the Left Behind books and listen to dimwits like Paula Michelle White-Cain. Many well meaning but terribly ill-informed Christians will visit “The Holy Land”, buy garbage trinkets and send money to Jewish groups that do everything in their power to prevent Christians from doing the one thing they are supposed to be doing as it pertains to Jews: preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to them, calling on them to repent and be baptized. Not only is Paula Michelle White-Cain not qualified to be a Christian pastor for a myriad of reasons, she is working directly at odds with what Christians are commanded by text and example in the New Testament to do regarding the rebellious unbelieving Jews.
This is the person advising Trump on “spiritual matters”?
Whatever else you think of Trump, his judgment in selecting people to advise him is shitty and that is one reason why he accomplished so little in four years and mostly was outmaneuvered by Schumer and Pelosi (and “leaders” in his own party).
