Stephen Strang: Why This Pastor Says ‘God, Trump and the 2020 Election’ Is Still Relevant Today

by | Feb 11, 2021 | Blogs, The Strang Report

Pastor Robert Reeves of Indian Field United Methodist Church in St. George, South Carolina, has no shame in admitting he voted for Donald Trump in both the 2016 and 2020 elections. And, what’s more, he says now that the most recent election has concluded, my book God, Trump and the 2020 Election, rather than being obsolete, is something everyone should read.

Reeves sent me a letter on this topic, and I found it so intriguing that I wanted to share his thoughts with you. My goal in writing this and my other three books is not to make money; instead, it’s to help awaken and inspire people to what I believe to be the truth in the power of the Holy Spirit.

And Reeves says we still need awakening. “People should have read this book before the election, but they need to read it again, or they need to read it for the first time because there’s information in it … [about] what will happen should Trump not win reelection,” he says. “Those chapters were reasonable. They weren’t all fatalistic; they were not sensationalized by negativity. They just told the facts.”

Reeves adds that too many in the body of Christ today are struggling with a negative, fatalistic mindset because the election didn’t go the way we perhaps hoped or thought it would. “Dear God, what’s going to happen now?” he says they’re asking.

“Now that’s a legitimate question … but they’ve got to look at it through the mind of Christ and not through fear and fatigue and fatalism, as if God Almighty—our heavenly Father—fell off the throne,” he says, adding that the candidate who most supports Judeo-Christian values is not the one we put in the Oval Office.

Reeves says God, Trump and the 2020 Election is a book that will help people train their minds to think about the major issues of our country so they can speak with clarity and understanding.

“I like the fact that it is written in a way that the novice can read this and can follow it and can get the major points … that they need to be able to discuss with others,” he says. “And the person who has been following politics and the kingdom of God and can look into what God is saying—they can also read this, and it goes much deeper.

“So to use this metaphor, this book is written in a way that it can help the person who’s in the first grade of learning about where we are politically, and it can also help the person who’s at the graduate and doctorate level, studying what God is doing and what’s happening,” Reeves says. “So that’s another way I would describe why people need to look at this book. It’s not obsolete. It’s just as valuable today as it was before the election.”
