Xristian Hypocrisy: Then and Now, Now and Then

I read somewhere this morning a new term for the hipocrite Evangelical Xristians who seem to be advocating the ol’ Do as I say, not as I do version of the Gospel: Court Evangelicals, though I think Courtesan Christians might be more accurate.

Anyway, the redoubtable Nancy LeTourneau defines them thusly:

John Fea, who chairs the History Department at Messiah College, came up with a name for the white evangelical leaders who continue to support Donald Trump no matter what he says or does. He calls them “court evangelicals”  who, “like the attendants and advisers who frequented the courts of monarchs, seeks influence.”

We submit into Evidence the following pair of videos featuring noted grifter and false Xristian Robert Jeffress taking exact and opposing views of how the Evangelicals view the importance of (not?) compromising their beliefs.

First the Then:

And now the Now:

So what do we take away from this (besides that Jeffress charges $20, same as in town)? It is that there is no end to Xristian Conservative Hucksterism. (Prosperity Gospel, anyone?) It’s all end justifies the means with them.

Anyway, Courtesan Christians is our phrase for the day.

    This asshole is so far gone that his hypocrisy exceeds even the range of Christian scripture on the subject. Nothing quite fits. https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/bible-verses-about-hypocrisy/

    Of course, these megachurch plutocrats never much mention Matthew 19:24 either: “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

    Way too inconvenient for the likes of this huckster.

      What was it Jesus said about puffed-up pontificating pontificaters puffed-up-edly pontificating on street corners? Oh, right, put it in the closet.

      Matthew 6:5-6:

      When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, who love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on street corners so that others may see them. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.

      You want bonus points for that?

      Mt 6:1-3 (just prior to the above). Do it because it’s the right thing to do.

    While “courtesan christians” would be descriptive of a portion of the phenomena, I’ve been considering “MEvangelicals” as being descriptive of the current crop of Elmer Gantry wannabes and their followers. After all, they’re more like guidelines than commandments, right?

    Comparing these people to prostitutes is an insult to prostitutes. Prostitutes aren’t hypocrites, they don’t denounce other people for doing what they themselves do, and they aren’t seeking power to force other people to submit to an arbitrary taboo system.
