Donald Trump vs. Jesus Christ quote comparison

An apology post I wrote after reflecting on how I’ve written about Trump and immigration / refugee policy

Donald Trump:

“we will make America wealthy again” (January 20th, 2017 Inauguration Speech)

“Part of the beauty of me is that I am very rich.” (Good Morning America, 2011)

“The point is, you can never be too greedy.” The Art of the Deal

Jesus Christ:

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” (Matthew 6:24)

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:19-21)







Donald Trump:

“we will make America proud again” (January 20th, 2017 Inauguration Speech)

“And, yes, together we will make America great again.” (January 20th, 2017 Inauguration Speech)

How large a role does pure ego play in your deal making and enjoyment of publicity? “Every successful person has a very large ego.” Every successful person? Mother Teresa? Jesus Christ? “Far greater egos than you will ever understand.” — Playboy, 1990

Jesus Christ:

A dispute also arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest. Jesus said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves.  For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves. (Luke 22:24-27)

just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28)

The greatest among you will be your servant.  For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted. (Matthew 23:11-12)

Donald Trump:

We will bring back our borders. (January 20th, 2017 Inauguration Speech)

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bring crime. They’re rapists… And some, I assume, are good people.”

“I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me. Believe me. And I’ll build it very inexpensively. I’ll build a great, great wall on our southern border and I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.” (Campaign Launch 2015)

“Donald J Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States, until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.” (2015)

Jesus Christ:

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,  I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’(Matthew 25:34-40)

“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” (Luke 10:36-37, see Luke 10:25-37 for full parable)

Donald Trump:

“You know, it doesn’t really matter what [the media] writes as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.” — Esquire, 1991

“Nobody cares about the talent [in beauty pageants]. There’s only one talent you care about, and that’s the look talent. You don’t give a shit if a girl can play a violin like the greatest violinist in the world. You want to know what does she look like.” — TrumpNation, 2005

“Oftentimes when I was sleeping with one of the top women in the world I would say to myself, thinking about me as a boy from Queens, ‘Can you believe what I am getting?’” — Think Big: Make it Happen in Business and Life, 2008.

“…she does have a very nice figure. I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

“I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I’m more honest and my women are more beautiful.”

“And when you’re a star they let you do it.  You can do anything. Grab them by the p***y. You can do anything.” -2005 recording

“I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it,” he says, discussing his attempt to seduce a married woman. (At the time, Trump was a few months into his marriage with his third wife, Melania.) “I did try and f**k her. She was married.” -2005 recording

Jesus Christ:

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. (Matthew 5:27-28)







Trump: “When I go to church and when I drink my little wine and have my little cracker, I guess that is a form of forgiveness. I do that as often as I can because I feel cleansed.”

Trump: “I fully think apologizing is a great thing. But you have to be WRONG … I will absolutely apologize sometime in the hopefully distant future if I’m ever wrong.”

Trump: “Why do I have to repent, why do I have to ask for forgiveness if [I’m] not making mistakes?”

    Proverbs 11:13 A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
    Matthew 10:26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
    Proverbs 11:13A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
    James 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
    Romans 13:1-7
    Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: …

    I’m done.

  2. Nice work.
