Donald Trump is a bible carrying Presbyterian by his own admission.The Republican candidate for president believes there’s “an assault on Christianity” both in America and abroad. He’s angry with the current administration for what he believes is them “doing nothing to help believers being decapitated by ISIS.”
“They’re being beheaded in Syria! They’re being beheaded,” Trump exclaimed Friday on Alabama’s Yellowhammer Radio. “They’ve been abandoned by Obama and this whole group. They won’t be abandoned by Trump, believe me.”
“If you’re a Christian, it’s almost impossible to come into the United States from Syria,” the billionaire developer continued. “And yet the Muslims, it’s one of the easier places. Now you explain that to me. Absolutely there’s an assault on Christianity, and we’re gonna reverse that trend big-league.”
All the Republican candidates are confessed Christians who vow to fight for Christianity and the rights of Christians.
However you may vote, remember when a vote is cast to reflect God’s moral principles, you’re not merely taking advantage of your rights, but you’re performing a duty essential in preserving, or in some cases, repairing, the moral fabric of our nation. In the next few weeks to come candidates will introduce themselves and reveal their beliefs.
Remember God has granted us authority. All authority belongs to God, but He has put human beings on the earth as caretakers.
According to Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20 we are to:
Go out and make disciples of all nations, teaching them to obey God in every area of life.
This scripture includes our participation in politics. We must disciple people to make godly decisions about government, and promote the efforts of those who are already doing so. What do you think?
