Here is how Never-Trump Christians think: Fight Those Who Are Fighting For You and Aid Those Who Are Fighting Against You.

Want to see a blank stare?  Simply ask a Never-Trump Christian, “Who would you rather have as an alternative to President Trump? Give me a name. In the war that is being waged against every one of our freedoms: freedom of speech, freedom of religion and everything we hold dear as a free nation—in the battle to protect the unborn, the family, and morality—who’s your candidate for President? No, I mean one who can actually win.”

Their struggle to come up with an answer begins with a blank stare. Then the wheels in their heads start spinning in vain as they search for the right response.  Finally, in their frustration, you will hear them spout a string of platitudes.  Like: “God’s answer to our mess can’t possibly be Trump, because he is a flawed human being.” And, what? Do you think the God-hating candidates on the left are saints? God has used several flawed leaders to bring about His will: Nebuchadnezzar and Cyrus, for example.

Trump is a bizarre answer to our national calamity—I’ll give you that. But he is the answer. That’s why he turned the economy around. That’s why he has added conservatives to benches all across America: two Supreme Court Justices and 187 judges—and there are 18 more awaiting Senate approval.

Because he is the answer, he removed the gag order on preachers, moved to restore prayer in schools, and became the first President in history to address the March for Life Rally. Would Warren or Sanders do any of those things? If Hillary had won, do you think you would even recognize America right now?

As far back as I can remember, there have been a cluster of Christians who yearned for respectability among the secular academics. Instead of believing God’s word that says “He has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise,” they foolishly seek the approval of those the Bible truly calls fools. And what do they have to show for it?

Something has happened that should horrify you. 3 out 8 venues in England just banned Franklin Graham’s crusades. His crime? A Biblical view of marriage. The magistrates who banned him said: “we can no longer reconcile the balance between freedom of speech and the divisive impact this event is having in our city. We have informed the organisers of the event that the booking will no longer be fulfilled.”

We are praying for this situation. We are imploring everyone involved with these crusades to keep moving forward and not to let up!  We believe God for a miracle.

These three venues have, in essence, said that their values matter more than free speech.

Hear this! These venues did not ban Franklin Graham because of Donald Trump, but because of the Bible. How many of those believers in the U. K. do you think ever thought it would come to this?

Well, it is coming to this, in America, and not just through demon-driven leftists, but through ambivalent believers who refuse to find either the courage or the humility to accept the President God has given us.

President Trump has been raised up to stand as a firewall against the powers of darkness so that the church can rise up and be the church. And, what is at stake, my friends, is the future of America.


  1. Rebecca Gates

    God bless and keep you Mario! Thank you for all your blogs and your courage to speak the truth .I pray daily for you ,your crusades, and that blinded Christians wake up . America’s freedom is at stake.

    • Carolina

      I would add to Rebecca’s comment, that a devout Christian cannot be blinded, incorrect doctrinally yes, maybe, but blinded by this present darkness, I don’t believe so.
      As for Great Britain, as a nation, they seem to be liberal left in some areas and quite conservative in others.
      I know this much, yesterday was an illuminating feast of American constitutional facts & values, put forth by the Trump Legal Team in the Senate impeachment hearings. WHAT a contrast they drew out for the American public to really understand the framers of the Constitution’s original desires regarding the impeachment process. And expertly revealing how FAR down the road to ruin this politically weaponized House of Representatives has taken their branch of government.
      The BIG punch in the gut to our American Constitution is that these renegades from the House, are actually exercising a form of parliamentary rule from the top down. EVERYTHING this nation fought and warred to break free from which was and is still done in the UK.
      So yes, to you Mario, these stiff necked people within ‘name only Christian’ circles who accompany the Leftist agenda, are really just emulating the Parliament of the United Kingdom by trying to usurp, with hubris, the Executive branch of this nation’s government. American Faith based believers need to do more than wake up, they must re-learn all over again what it means to be an American and then hit the books again regrading their own Faith in Jesus Christ.
      Ignorance is no excuse & is NOT bliss!???

      • Carolina

        Sorry spelling error, should be, …”re-learn all over again what it means to be an American and then hit the books again regarding their own Faith in Jesus Christ”.

  2. Michele

    Wake up all you Pharisees ????

    • Pat Holt

      Search out the old paths, and when you find them, walk there in. The Bible says.????

  3. Kevin Straight

    AMEN Mario!! May we pray that this reprieve that God has give us here in America be taken advantage of. I pray daily for your Lifeproof California crusades, and that the people of California and beyond heed the words that God gives you to preach. May new life start in the churches all across America. If not we are headed down the road to hell. If God takes His protective hand away we are doomed. Thank you for speaking the truth, even if sometimes it hurts, that to me means that the Lord is pruning His vines and getting rid of the bad in my life. I am praying that the fire of the Holy Spirit be lit in all God’s churches in America, and that we start following the lead of our God. He needs many workers, and will keep us busy for Him if we just ask. Again thank you for your obedience to our God. May He bless you and your ministry.

    Yes dear brother!!!!
    God has given us this land!
    It’s His!
    I stand with you and with Him!
    Thank you for sounding the Alarm!⏰⏰⏰???????????

    • Juan

      If you are a Christian, this land (earth) is not your home. Heaven is your home & you are but a pilgrim passing through. Hebrews 11:13

      • Mark

        However, that’s not an excuse to be complacent and allow the ungodly to destroy one’s country. That passage has more to do with our peace of mind, knowing that in the end we have a better place, and that God holds our future. In the meantime, we can stand up for our religious freedom, and at the very least vote based on Biblical values.

  5. Kenneth Salter

    I believe God allowed Trump to be president because of his good relationsvwithe Israel. I am a Christian first, (believer of Jesus Christ. I am Trump supporter and try to ignore any that hate him. Bite my tongue a lot. I will vote for Trump this November 2020. Thanks

    • B R Welch

      President Trump is doing what he can to protect the U.S.A. I a Christian and a Veteran – I would rather Trump be in charge than Pelosi and Schiff. When people are attacking a person like they are, it is to draw attention away from what they are doing. This applies both ways.

  6. Diane Zeller

    Today is also the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. The Nazi socialist party started the holocaust by removing freedom of speech and freedom of religion among many other things. How is that any different from banning a well-known evangelist from speaking in your country?. Folks we are dangerously close. Open your hearts to God for guidance on how and where to speak out and to get involved in protecting the freedoms that we have. In the name of Jesus

    • Esther Matta

      Yes, Ms. Zeller, I agree with you. I pray God’s mercy upon us who are called by His name.

    This is what has me worried about American pastors and churches. Pastors who are really great pastors, who watch the news and know how bad things are becoming, seem to develop amnesia when they get in the pulpit. Where are the firey challenges to the congregation to wake up and get involved? The wolves are at the door and the churches are asleep. They are having church like this is 1970 while our freedoms have grown legs and are marching toward the cliff. I am for inviting those caught in sinful lifestyles to church, of course, that is what we are there for. The church is a hospital. We want the sick to come. But it seems like more care should be taken in how the pastor phrases his proclamation that “all are welcome”. Of course they are welcome. But what is going to happen if they set the pastor up and demand to be “married” in the church? What happens if they want to become a member? Has the pastor prepared for these things? I just read a story today about the pastor of a very well known church telling a news person, when asked if he could support same-sex “marriage or abortion, “Anything can happen?” Talk about loving people into Hell. I don’t know about all denominations, but I know that our denomination has in its bylaws that the applicant for membership must be living a Godly lifestyle. Even a glass of wine with dinner is forbidden. If the pastor is not speaking out against unrepentant sinful lifestyles, how are these people supposed to know they have to repent, be saved, and walk holy before the Lord? Is it really about getting souls saved any more, or is it about numbers and church growth?

    • Randall Dunning

      Christians, so called, who are “Never Trumpers”, have put their faith in lies and have rejected the growing mountain of good deeds in office performed by this president. These hypocrites have no alternative yet they continue to murmur and complain like the ungrateful fools who God destroyed in the wilderness. Enough! To these Never Trumper wolves in sheep’s clothing I say: take this baptized marxism and this faux morality and peddle it elsewhere. I for one will not tolerate nor be moved by secular lies and leftist falsehoods any more.

    • Susan

      Matthew 7:13-14. Enter ye in at the straight gate, for wide is the gate , and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at; 14 because straight is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth into life , and few there be that find it.) the never Trump Christians, not sure I want to call them that, are walking straight to the broad wide way to destruction. They better stop and take a good look at the Bible. If they are so called Believers, they will believe every word of the Bible. The problem with preachers who say this is not sin to kill babies or marry the same sex is an anti-faction of the Lord’s Church. Believers who have not believed, repented, and baptized for the remission of their sins are not walking in the light of the a Lord.

    • Lisa

      A glass of wine with dinner is forbidden in your church bi-laws? I don’t think I’ve ever read anything like that in the Bible! Jesus drank wine and the only thing I recall in Scripture about drinking wine is not to do it in excess or with the intention of getting drunk.
      I agree with a lot of what you say but we are instructed to love the sinner not the sin & let God do the judging not us.
      I comment with the love of Christ in my heart!

  8. Graham Emerson

    Hi Mario

    Thanks for your emails. They are encouraging, challenging and informative. We are looking forward to Franklin Graham coming over to Britain this summer. Whilst there has been some opposition and calls for the venues to be closed to him, particularly in the city of Sheffield, he is still coming to 8 cities. We are taking a bus load to 2 cities, Newcastle and Liverpool, and many Christians are behind him coming and praying for his ministry this summer.


    Pastor Graham

    • Dan W

      Thank you for clearing up the incorrect statement that Franklin Graham is “banned from the UK” in the article. The city of Sheffield is the only one (so far) backing away due to Graham’s stand on biblical marriage.
      I make this distinction to keep believers aware that 1) we don’t need to exaggerate our claims and concerns, 2) we are always held to a higher standard when making claims of wrongdoing, and 3) we can correctly point out that once a single city “bans” Christian Free Speech (and Truth), it won’t be long until it is accepted practice.

      • mariomurilloministries

        The claims are not exaggerated as there is now a third venue that has cancelled Franklin Graham. However, we must pray and hold on to the hope that no more cancellations will take place and that Reverend Graham will be able to bring Gospel to the remaining venues. We stand with our brothers and sisters in the U.K. and encourage all the sponsors and workers of the remaining crusades not to let up or be dissuaded by the terrible choices made by those 3 venues.

  9. Ewan Gear

    Weak and over inclusive thinking about England. This is prejudicial thinking. Of course there is opposition from the enemy to the preaching of the gospel, and yes, there was a ban, but that doesn’t mean that the whole of England has banned Franklin Graham. Such muddy thinking does the rest of your discussion much harm.

    • Carolina

      Mr Gear, I do not see Mario M. having “muddy thinking” in this expose’ quite the opposite.
      What this reveals (even if its only in some counties, hamlets, tones & cities) is what we’re experiencing here in the U.S. And that’s an all out effort by “some” in local governments to ban the word of God spoken through HIS people to a lost and dying world.
      Both the U.K and the U.S. have traditionally been English speaking, Christian nations, for centuries. Known for as Western civilization that have commonsense laws and religious liberty.
      That dear Sir is being taken away, step by step, inch by inch, and the devil isn’t doing it people are!… because they are lost and without God in this world. Even as Islam grows globally in distinction and acceptance, Christianity is suffering a big blow. We are more simply put “born again activists for heaven”?.

  10. smuzick

    Mario, The left is always talking about how ignorant Trump voters are. Well the left owns the ghettos of America, the poorest of the poor. I never hear how well educated these folks are. Or the illegal aliens whose votes they crave. We need to shine a light on this. Maybe we are so ignorant after all compared to their voters.

  11. Marc Falsetti

    Spiritual Laziness, Political Ambivalence and Constitutional Ignorance affect not only some who identify as Christians, but the later two have infected most Americans as a whole. God installed 0bama, but as frightening as THAT was, without those eye-opening and destructive 8 years…. there would be no Trump!
    I have waited and prayed for a REAL President of the people and one unafraid to rattle the malevolent pillars of power and restore respect for Christians & Jews. But, am saddened to see him rejected & scorned by so many, just like the prophets of old were and our current inspired teachers & proclaimers of the will of God are.

    • Israel Leon

      This comment is correct and right on . Right on …. Obama woke up many comfortable Christians . I know. I was one of them. But not any more. I’m wide awake attending prayer meetings, praying for our country, praying for GODs laws to reign once again in our nation. Praying for our President, for every born again believer to come up to the front lines for this nation in our prayer rooms and ask GOD “show me how to fight”
      Blessed be the LORD my strength that teaches my hands to war and my fingers to fight.” Psalms 144:1
      and speaking up at my church and to my fellow brothers in the LORD.

      • Linda Myers

        I could not agree more. Well said

    • Carolina

      AMEN Mr Marc Falsetti, excellent comment!??
      This miserable spirit of angst that PR-Donald J Trump is experiencing from his peers right now, I believe will be the spiritual making of him.
      Donald Trump has already had all the worldly kudos(s) any natural man could desire. I surely believe that while Christ has been benefitting us in The Household of our Faith by Donald Trump’s administration in the White House. God has simultaneously been spiritually reconstructing Mr. Donald Trump. Because HE loves him. And just like The Master Potter God is…HE’s using God’s economy, HE is squeezing every last drop out of the current unseemly Washington DC messy situation, so that in the end nothing will be lost or wasted.
      We are ALL God’s work in progress ????‍♂️?
      I never forget the miracle of God’s economy after feeding the 5 (or 7) thousand – Jesus assigned (His disciples) to… “Gather up the leftover fragments so that nothing will be lost.” So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments from the ‘five’ barley loaves which were left over by those 5 (or 7) thousand people who had eaten.
      The Lord is NOT wasting or losing any of this.

  12. Gregory A Dean

    The problem with most of these “christians” is that they do not see themselves as flawed human beings.

    • Carolina

      Agreed Mr Dean, and doesn’t that divulge the attitude they harbor?
      This brings about a stark contrast for any to view, between the devout sinner who is suddenly humiliatingly reminded of their sin and desperate condition before holy Christ in God, whereby these contrasting Christians revel in their own piety, becoming religious snobs, believing they are a King’s kid with favor that’s undaunted, all the while forgetting how deeply lost & undone they were before Christ Jesus decided on them.

  13. Noel

    Yes, America, namely the American Church, has been given a great reprieve in the blessing of our President by promoting freedom to proclaim the whole counsel of God. But to understand the magnitude of our reprieve we must understand how far the Church has fallen from her exalted position. As the apostle John wrote, quoting the risen and glorified Son of God, “Repent and do the things you did at first.” Revelation 2:1-5

    Even the early church strayed from the Apostolic foundation and the chief cornerstone of Jesus Christ!
    As the call has gone out among many conservative voices to return to our Constitutional roots and the intent of the framers, so the Church must return to the foundation of Jesus Christ and His doctrine.

    • Carolina

      AMEN Noel⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️…that was a five star comment!?

  14. Israel Leon

    “Now his father and mother did not know this was from the LORD, who was seeking an occasion to move against the Philistines; for at that time the Philistines were ruling over Israel.)”. Judges 14:4

    Samson’s parents are all these Christians who should be supporting the President instead of criticizing him Because they did not know the it WAS OF THE LORD.
    Trump is not a bizarre answer from GOD. He is the right weapon and the perfect tool that GOD like Samson has chosen to pick a fight with the Godless idolatrous liberal Democrats (the philistines) that hate our GOD.

  15. EstherKingsKid (@esther_kid)

    And so the sheep and the goats continue to separate.
    May I ask you a somewhat related [maybe?] question? The Spirit of Elijah – it turns the hearts of the children to the fathers and fathers to the children, right? Neither Elijah nor John the Baptist were dads. They also were not known for being cuddly teddy bears. On the contrary, they were tough, outspoken unmovably anointed men of God. So, how does that spirit reconcile families? Is it their willingness to put themselves on the line to speak what was right and, therefore, rescue captives from the enemy? Does that touch the hearts of the children – somebody finally fighting for them?
    Franklin Graham was doing that by speaking the truth, wasn’t he.

    • mariomurilloministries

      “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.” –John 5:19
      Jesus was not just the King, He was also a prophet. As such he carried the heart of the Father. Likewise John the Baptist and Elijah also were an extension of the Father’s heart. That, to me, explains how childless prophets can be tools for healing of families.

    • Israel Leon

      If I may. This prophetic word was for the last days. fathers failing to teach our children to love the LORD in these last days. Now we have in America these same children now adults that are being deceived into bondage with a promise of free things. GOD said he would lay our sin on the laps of our children. Jer 32:18 read it.

      Yet with every curse there is a blessing that in the last days if the fathers heart would return to the LORD then GOD would turn the hearts of our children back towards Him.

      What the prophet is saying if the fathers heart is backslidden then the heart of the children will have no relationship with GOD. BUT if the fathers hearts turn back to GOD Then the Spirit would align the children’s heart with the fathers towards GOD.

      That’s why the prophet Malachi said if the father does not turn back to GOD – If America does not repent and turn back to GOD he will smite the land.

      That’s what that means.

  16. purlywhirlygirl

    Thank you Mario for standing up for Truth!! I am attacked constantly for my faith and my support of President Trump. And I just smile and keep on praying. Is President Trump perfect? No. But God is using him in a mighty way to accomplish His purposes! Just as He did some other imperfect guys..Moses, David, Rahab, Jacob, Samson, Peter, Saul……they all appeared to men to be very flawed, but God used them in mighty ways!! I will continue to pray for my President and our country!! Praying for a huge revival!! <3
