Why do we let Republicans get away with claiming to be Christian?

No one can serve two masters: for either they will hate the one, and love the other; or else they will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
Luke 16:9-13

Based on non-traditional interpretations of the Bible, often with emphasis on the Book of Malachi, the doctrine views the Bible as a contract between God and humans: if humans have faith in God, he will deliver his promises of security and prosperity. Confessing these promises to be true is perceived as an act of faith, which God will honor.

LMFAO.

Non-traditional being a euphemism for idiotic in this sense. Jesus made his opinions on the wealthy very clear in Luke 18:25, Matthew 19:25 and Mark 10:25.

Anyone that believes in this doctrine never read the Bible.

This is a reference to the fact that we get to go to Heaven after we die and live for eternity in paradise, not to our earthly status.
