May our Nation and our people never forget the love, grace, and goodness of our Maker, and may our praise and gratitude never cease. – President Donald J. Trump,National Day of Prayer Proclamation, May 3, 2018
The Christian Post reports that
President Donald Trump signed an executive order creating the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, expanding upon previous administrations’ faith-based initiatives.
At a National Day of Prayer event held at the White House Rose Garden on Thursday morning that featured speakers of diverse religious backgrounds, President Trump signed the executive order.
“The executive branch wants faith-based and community organizations, to the fullest opportunity permitted by law, to compete on a level playing field for grants, contracts, programs, and other Federal funding opportunities,” reads the order in part.
“The efforts of faith-based and community organizations are essential to revitalizing communities, and the Federal Government welcomes opportunities to partner with such organizations through innovative, measurable, and outcome-driven initiatives.”
In his remarks at the Rose Garden event, Trump championed his administration’s efforts to protect the religious liberty of people both in the United States and overseas and labeled the executive order a “historic action.”
“The faith initiative will help design new policies that recognize the vital role of faith in our families, in our communities, and our great country,” stated Trump.
“This office will also help ensure that faith-based organizations will have equal access to government funding and the equal right to exercise their deeply held beliefs. We take this step because we know that in solving the many, many problems and our great challenges, faith is more powerful than government. And nothing is more powerful than God.”
Another story found at The Christian Post shows that President Trump practices what he preaches.
In an interview with CBN News shortly after Trump held a celebration for the National Day of Prayer in the Rose Garden, Pence said the president has encouraged praying in the White House by personally promoting the practice himself.
“There’s prayer going on on a regular basis in this White House. And it’s one of the most meaningful things to me, whether it’s public meetings or not, I’ve lost count of the number of times that the president has nudged me, or nudged another member of the Cabinet and said, ‘Let’s start this meeting with prayer,'” Pence said.
That loud thunderclap that you just heard was the sound of Internet Trolls’ and NeverTrumpers’ sphincters all slamming shut in unison across the country over this post.
With the Trump-Russia Collusion Fairy Tale fading slowly into the sunset, Liberals’ “Big Weapon” against Trump has been the word of a woman who has made her living on her back claming that she and the President had an affair and that she was paid off to go away.
The problem facing Liberals is that this story has not had the earth-shaking impact on the President’s popularity that they thought it would.
The fact of the matter is that Trump’s popularity just grew by 18 points in a Reuter’s Poll, rising to 50% in a Liberal -heavy survey.
Why aren’t Americans buying what the Democratic Party and their Vanguard, the Main Stream Media, are so desperately attempting to sell?
Perhaps it has to do with what Dr. James Dobson, the Christian Leader who founded “Focus on the Family” said before the 2016 Presidential Election about Trump’s faith.
Only the Lord knows the condition of a person’s heart. I can only tell you what I’ve heard. First, Trump appears to be tender to things of the Spirit. I also hear that Paula White has known Trump for years and that she personally led him to Christ. Do I know that for sure? No. Do I know the details of that alleged conversion? I can’t say that I do. But there are many Christian leaders who are serving on a faith advisory committee for Trump in the future. I am among them. There are about 25 of us that include Jerry Falwell, Jr., Robert Jeffress, Jack Graham, Ben Carson, James Robison, Michele Bachmann, and many others whom you would probably know. We’ve all agreed to serve. How will that play out if Trump becomes president? I don’t know. It is a good start, I would think.
If anything, this man is a baby Christian who doesn’t have a clue about how believers think, talk and act. All I can tell you is that we have only two choices, Hillary or Donald. Hillary scares me to death. And, if Christians stay home because he isn’t a better candidate, Hillary will run the world for perhaps eight years. The very thought of that haunts my nights and days. One thing is sure: we need to be in prayer for our nation at this time of crisis.
Dr. Dobson was not alone.
The thought of Hillary becoming President of the United States of America scared a lot of Americans.
But, I digress…
So, why are Christian Americans still supporting President Trump?
Our Salvation is not determined by the support of our American President…but, by God’s Grace.
As Christians we are instructed to individually listen to that “Still Small Voice” inside us.
While Christians, in church and outside of it, represent the corporate Body of Christ, according to scripture, we each possess the Spiritual Gifts of Free Will and Discernment.
These gifts are used by each of us on a daily basis, including aiding in our decision to continue to support President Trump.
Unlike Liberals and Marxists (but, I may be repeating myself), we do not make our political decisions or vote as a collective, nor should we.
There were no Saints who ran for the President of the United States of America, on either side.
Just a flawed man, as we all are, and a woman…a very mean and evil woman.
When President Trump, like the rest of Christian Americans, attends a Sunday Morning Service, he is not sitting in a Shrine for Saints. He is sitting in a Hospital for Sinners.
Like the rest of us Christians, President Trump does not have to be perfect…just FORGIVEN.
I’m just sayin’.
Until He Comes,
