Mike Lindell, the MyPillow guy, was among several corporate CEOs at President Trump’s March 30 press briefing on the Coronavirus, held in the Rose Garden at the White House. Anyone who knows Lindell’s story knows that he at one point in his life lost a marriage and his family due to his addiction to crack cocaine. Then he gave his life to Jesus Christ, had his life restored, and put Christian principles into how he runs his successful bedding company in Minnesota.
MyPillow is among many companies who approached the President to say they would help in the effort to combat the deadly virus. Lindell’s company is making masks that are in high demand as well as helping coordinate on other fronts. At the end of his speech, Lindell went on to encourage Americans to use their time of self-isolation to read the Bible, pray, and appreciate their families, assuring everyone that we would make it through this challenging time.
But as they say, “Haters gonna hate.” And those haters, who refuse to count their blessings or give God credit for anything and just outright loathe any positive accomplishments by conservatives, took to Twitter. One such liberal said, ‘Yet another white man confusing “God” with “An Electoral College Demanded by Dead Slaveowners.”‘ The funny thing about his racist comment is that he himself is white. Liberals like him hate the Electoral College because it wisely prevents liberals from having the mob rule they want.
Another tweet said, ‘Whenever I see one of those commercials, I can’t change the d*** channel quick enough.’ Still another tweet said, “The churches are closed, but we can listen to a sermon on FOX News from … a pillow salesman who thinks Donald Trump is the messiah.” The pile-on continued with another person reverting to the same old false accusation of “racists!” often hurled at Republicans or conservatives, tweeting, “Trump respects the My Pillow Guy because they’re both fake Christians who share a love of white sheets.” Those are the tamer tweets. Many others were freely using curse words to express themselves. These are the same types of people who claim the President isn’t doing enough despite the fact he’s doing way more than they themselves would consider doing or have done.
Nevertheless, God still got the glory thanks to Lindell’s bold words. His words reflect the views of more than half of Americans. According to a new Pew Research Center survey, 55% have prayed for the virus to stop spreading. Bringing God’s word and prayer into the national spotlight is always an encouraging thing and a powerful witness, so kudos and blessings to Lindell and to the President’s administration for making that opportunity possible.
6 And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
7 And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious. Ezekiel 2
