Yes, I am glad that Hillary was not elected. And yes, I will pray for Trump.
But if you think He was put in the presidency because He has God’s FAVOR, then I think you don’t know much about him.
Trump was not an unknown or a nobody. He was not ‘Joe Plumber’ before he ran for president. He was a very wealthy, connected man. He was not wealthy by virtue of being a godly man that God was blessing. He was wealthy because all his life he has served mammon. He is not a godly man–if I remember right, he abandoned his wife and married his mistress. He is a man who owned a casino and felt it needed a strip club too.
Now that he has been elected president, we need to stand behind him and pray for him. But what gets me is the number of ‘Christians’ who were supporting this man BEFORE he was elected. Examine the fruit, people!
All I’m looking for is a little honesty from his supporters. Rather than paint him as some great guy who is open to God, and open for God to use him–lets be honest about the kind of man he always has been. Has there been any repentance or remorse yet? Then lets not pretend there has been!
He’s a politician, doing what politician do: making promises, and most likely lying. He has paid speech writers and a campaign manager who helped him to say exactly what YOU wanted to hear, because he needed YOUR votes, because the evangelical voting block is enough to win, or lose, the election.
Lets be honest, and not pretend this man is something he isn’t. As with Obama, it’s going to take some time for him to show his true colors–but if we care to look, a lot of his history has already been written . . . and so far, it isn’t very good.
How ludicrous ‘Christians’ must seem right now. We tell people they are going to Hell because they haven’t said a ‘Sinner’s Prayer’ . . . yet the majority of (so-called) ‘evangelical Christians’ wanted to be unequally yoked with Mr. Trump, and promote his campaign–a man whose sexual immorality is common knowledge. No wonder they call us hypocrites!
Please, lets just be honest. This man really NEEDS our prayers, because spiritually he’s a mess. And now he’s the president. It’s totally fine to say we’re praying for him because he needs to repent and find God. But lets not pretend he’s leadership material for the godly nation Christians say they want, because he’s not. He’s really going to need prayer to do what’s right, because his past shows repeated moral failings. Most likely he’s going to disappoint Evangelical, Conservatives as much as he disappointed his first wife. Without God’s help, he’s just not going to be able to be the man you think he is.
