God May Forgive You (But I Won't)


There's a good chance that President Trump knows that the stain of impeachment will be part of his legacy. And as damning details about the president's behavior trickle out, we're realizing how much we still don't know. This may explain why impeachment may be more popular than we realize.

President Trump told CNN's Jake Tapper in 2016 that he had a "great relationship with God," and that he "doesn't do a lot of things that are bad." Yet, a basic Christian confession is that all of us have fallen short of the glory of God and are in need of God's forgiveness." How do Christians reconcile President Trump's lack of personal morality with their wide support for his presidency?

We also bring you interesting factoids about impeachment and a deep dive into the words that are emerging from the process.
