Trump Slams Evangelical Leader Russell Moore on Twitter

Early this morning, Donald Trump tweeted an attack tweet against Dr. Russell Moore, the President of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, the moral concerns and public policy entity of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination.

In response to the tweets, Dr. Moore tweeted, “Sad!”

Then he tweeted “1 Kings 18:17-19”:

1 Kings 18:17-19 says:

When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, “Is it you, you troubler of Israel?” And he answered, “I have not troubled Israel, but you have, and your father’s house, because you have abandoned the commandments of the LORD and followed the Baals. Now therefore send and gather all Israel to me at Mount Carmel, and the 450 prophets of Baal and the 400 prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”

 

Many supporters quickly came to Dr. Moore’s defense,

Dr. Moore was our guest on last week’s episode of the ChurchLeaders podcast, discussing how evangelicals should engage politically during this election season. You can listen to that episode here.
