Why Has Jim Garlow’s Article Contrasting Trump and Hillary Been Shared a Million Times?

by | Aug 31, 2016 | Blogs, The Strang Report

In early August, someone on Facebook asked Jim Garlow “the question” on how to vote. The person didn’t like either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. When the San Diego pastor’s Facebook reply was widely shared, Garlow decided to send it to a handful of friends, including me.

When my wife, Joy, saw it, she said it was a message we had to get out, so I asked Garlow to write something for our charismacaucus.com website. It was expected to pass a million shares today, thanks to many of you who sent it out on social media and via email to your friends.

That’s because we knew many Christians wouldn’t vote for Hillary’s left wing pro-abortion and pro-gay agenda. But they had a bad opinion of Donald Trump, too. It looked like many Bible-believing Christians would sit out this election rather than vote for someone they didn’t like.

What Garlow wrote hit a cord. As you can read below, he implores you to, if for no other reason, vote for Trump because the Republican platform is so much better than the Democratic. And, he says that for Trumps problems and the fact there are unknowns about how he would govern, it is better than what we know about Hillary’s “knowns” of her platform as well as the the many scandals and Benghazi, etc.

In less than three weeks, the story has become the third most popular article we’ve ever published online. The second most popular is titled, “50 Reasons Why I Don’t Drink,” and was shared 1.1 million times, and Lee Grady’s “10 Men Christian Women Should Never Marry” was shared more than two million times and is the most popular article ever on our site. If Garlow’s article keeps the same pace, it will surpass that by the election.

Today we posted Garlow’s article in Spanish. If you know someone who needs to read it in Spanish, please share it.

By Jim Garlow

I have been asked “the question” so many times regarding Trump or Hillary. By way of background, I have followed every national convention—Republican and Democrat—from the time I was age 9, and have attended most of the GOP Conventions from 1984 to the present. I have watched the news virtually every day from the age of 8. I have never seen anything like what we are observing.

In spite of the unprecedented nature of this election cycle, I will attempt to respond to “the question.” I am not demanding that anyone else share my view. But I was asked. Here is my best attempt to answer as I am able to see things at this time:

1. The Democratic and Republican party platforms are as different as night and day, in my opinion, as far apart as evil vs. good. The 51-page Democratic platform is the most leftist ever. (I don’t care for the “right vs. left” nomenclature. I am far more concerned with “right vs. wrong.”) The Democratic platform contains many points which are anti-biblical. (Time does not permit me here to identify what is meant by “anti-biblical,” which is covered in my new book, Well Versed: Biblical Answers to Today’s Tough Issues.) It is thoroughly …
