Using "The (Donald) Trump Card" in Evangelism

Posted by Greg Stier on Jan 15, 2016 4:18:43 PM

Find me on:

"What do you think of Donald Trump?"

Donald_Trump_August_2015.jpgOkay, I don't really care to know, and I definitely have my own opinion...but that's not what this blog is all about. 

What it is about is how such a lightning rod subject Donald Trump is and how easy it is to use him as a Gospel conversation starter. Because EVERYONE seems to have an opinion about him and many are just itching to express it.

 So how do you use this "Trump card" when it comes to evangelism?

It's simple. Just ask someone what they think of him and let him or her unleash the torrent of their pro or con opinions!

As you listen, be WAY more interested in hearing their opinions on the Trumpster than telegraphing your own. If you totally disagree with them (and want to avoid an inevitable argument) use terms like "that's interesting" and "I've never considered that before" and so forth.

If you agree with what they're saying about Mr. Trump then pile on your own opinions like giant helpings of hair.

At some point you can begin to make what I like to call a "salvation segue" toward spiritual subjects. You can say things like "I know he claims to be a Christian. Do you think he is?" or "I wonder how God feels about his stances" or something like that.

From there begin to share the Gospel message in a loving and kind way. You may even want to download the free Life in 6 Words app to help you navigate this way-more-important-than-Trump conversation.

Wherever you stand, when it comes to the Donald, I hope and pray you stand even firmer in camp Jesus! Although he is not running for office he has already been crowned as King of kings and Lord of lords.

Let's use "The Trump Card" (and any other card we can find) to introduce others to Jesus!
