The American church is in crisis. The crisis is not caused by the politics of Trumpism, though that is the occasion for it. The crisis is evoked by the great challenge which every generation faces: to follow Jesus Christ in the way of discipleship. The word of God's promise sets before American Christians a simple but dramatic choice in the face of the toxic politics of Trumpism. Does the gospel of Jesus Christ embrace the politics of Trumpism? Yes, or no? Each must choose, and the gospel itself is at stake.
