Sarcasm or Blasphemy?

Did POTUS call himself the ‘Second Coming of God,’ the ‘Chosen One’ or the ‘King of Israel’? Internet memes and several news reports played off Trump’s comments made in a series of statements during the month August 2019. He will ultimately be judged by the real almighty. Trump now says he is not the Messiah, and was only joking, instead of apologizing for his inappropriate remark.

Do you think a President of the United States who expresses such a sentiment is a stunning and repulsive violation of our nation’s values? Does it reveal Trump’s true nature? Is he the religious individual he claims to be?

Is this is way past being an egomaniac? Egomania is a preoccupation with one's self and applies to anyone who follows one's own ungoverned impulses and is possessed by delusions of personal greatness and feels a lack of appreciation. Someone suffering from this extreme egocentric focus is an egomaniac. The condition is psychologically abnormal.

Was it sarcasm as he now claims or was this blasphemy? You decide using the following definitions: The act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God accused of blasphemy. : The act of claiming the attributes of a deity for a mere man to suggest that he was … divine could only be viewed … as blasphemy: Irreverence toward something considered sacred or inviolable.

What is the definition of blasphemy in the Bible? Can a person accidentally commit this sin? Does it automatically lead to the lake of fire? The word blasphemy is mentioned fourteen times in the King James Bible. It is used only twice in the Old Testament and twelve times in the New. Two of the main Scriptures that use the word are found in the books of Matthew and Revelation.

In Matthew, Christ uses the word blasphemy to warn the Pharisees who accuse him of using the power of the devil to cast out demons. In Revelation, the word is used in reference to the Beast power that will soon take control of the entire world and force the worship of Satan onto all people.

Because of this, I say to you, every sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven to men except the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit; that shall not be forgiven to men.

'It was sarcasm': President Donald Trump changes course on 'chosen one' remark…

This CSPAN clip provided for your consideration

White evangelicals supported Trump's presidential candidacy en masse in 2016. He sees that voting bloc – which has forgiven his extramarital affairs, his racism and incivility – as one of his firewalls in the upcoming 2020 campaign…

Why have so-called religious leaders avoided discussing Trump’s comments?…

Has he read The Bible? Does he believe, or will he agree this is one nation under GOD?
