While some of the people who denounce Grudem hardly represent positions in line with Scripture, this endorsement comes as no surprise. Grudem's ignorance of Scripture, history, law and the totality of his thought have long exhibited a trajectory of error. His endorsement of Trump is little more than the consequence or outcome. Grudem is revered by many and yet epitomises the Evangelical trajectory toward compromise with the world in order to seek power and approbation.
Some would argue such an assessment or verdict is unduly harsh. I think Grudem's disgusting endorsement of Trump perfectly demonstrates the corrupting influence at work within Evangelicalism. It also demonstrates how serious things are... not in America which has always been given over to evil, but in the Church. False prophets and lies are the rule of the day.
Grudem's thought exemplifies the bankruptcy of so-called Worldview thinking, which in reality is syncretism. Grudem's Calvinism is exposed as something of a joke... it is in reality a form of lip service masking a pragmatism subjugated to a philosophical outlook and expectation. This dominates his thinking from his treatment of the Text of Scripture to his bankrupt expressions of Christian Ethics.
His analysis of law, government and history are laughable if not tragic. He is quite literally blind as to what is the nature of government in general, our current government, and for that matter what type of government he wishes to see in power. His views are not only unrealistic they are wholly divorced from reality. He is a shill for a political faction which represents an amalgam of philosophies and beliefs, some packaged with a Christian veneer. His assessments do not represent the present state of things (like identifying Clinton as a Leftist!) nor are they produced utilising sound exegesis. The New Testament condemns not only his views but his very method of reasoning.
He lost my respect a long time ago, but perhaps now others will begin to realise that he's neither theologically conservative nor Biblically sound.
