It may be politically motivated and the timing is interesting but there is always that possibility that Trump has heard the Word and we know that the Word never goes out void even if psychologists or celebrities happen to be the mouthpieces. At the very least,we can pray that Trump or those standing by will have their curiosity peaked so as to hear the Word rightly divided somewhere else. It's difficult for the seed to survive without being watered properly. Because Trump is so in the public eye,it will become rather evident one way or the other which course he has taken. If he is a Christian,he has a choice to give up much more than most in the worldly sense. Surviving as a Christian and a politician seems incomprehensible. He certainly would lose popularity with the world. His "wisdom" of the worldly system to get things done has really been his ticket. He would gain more in those things which are eternal but the price may not be something which he is willing to pay.
That's one reason why I left a brethren church years ago. One morning the Pastor was encouraging the congregation by stating that "Just think,we'll get to see BG there." A lot of people are so loyal to the Grahams that they refuse to believe anything which would burst their bubble and when they do hear it,they are in disbelief or are so ecumenical in their thinking that they choose to stay in their ignorance in regards to the RCC. IDOL worship...almost as bad as staying an RCC in light of the truth. Let's pray that they would come out of the deception.
Well Steve,I was just recalling when a particular group in this nation wanted payback from the government in terms of restitution for slavery. Though in many ways, many other groups have often been in the position of "paying back" in terms of reverse discrimination. But,I would agree that the agenda of the PCA,hot to be confused with the PGA,I suppose,is probably in their own best interest and according to an agenda. There are more victims presently in society that could benefit from a church's support. They need only to look around. They wouldn't have far to go.
Barney,thank you for taking the time but I was referring to people who imagine themselves to be something other than they are in terms of poor judgment or mental impairment. Perhaps I should have been more clear. Homosexuality is not a mental illness any more than Adultery. They and all other conditions are plain and simply put -just SIN. The nation winked at adultery and lasciviousness of all other kinds,murder of babies and child sacrifice,etc. so,of course, we shouldn't be surprised that it is now embracing sodomy as well. If relativity is now the norm,however,one wonders how a society may maintain any absolutes which would include laws and technology and educational fundamentals. Practically speaking,that doesn't work,even if one so imagines. Buildings cannot be built randomly without using architectural principles and a nation cannot stand without laws.
The "plight" of the lgbts... Really? How about compassion and sorrow for the real victims- the countless aborted babies murdered under this administration? I just wonder which lgbt should have our empathy most...do melanin levels count or texture of hair or perhaps its the one who thinks that they are another gender and another "color" even if they aren't. I'm really curious as to what would constitute mental illness or impaired judgment in this "anything goes" society when there are no more objective standards and everything is relative.
Nick C, one cannot repent or apologize for another any more than one can be saved by anothers prayers. Further,most of those who expect an apology usually also desire some filthy lucre or compensation as well. Money is the root of all kinds of evil and those who play the eternal victim and use their melanin levels for gain are blind to their own pride of life.
This would be answered prayer as we should pray for leaders and those who would be leaders and their families. If Trump did repent and receive Christ,we will witness the fruits thereof. If he is just going through the motions,we will see that as well. ...one can fool non-discerning Christians and the lost and maybe otherwise discerning Christians but no one can fool God. No one who is truly born again stays in a pattern of sin. I would say that if Trump is born again that his casinos,strip clubs, and the PP will be gone with the wind...and not soon enough.
And the devils must be laughing considering that it's so unnecessary since we are all a shade of brown. Take your wasted energy and invest it towards someone or something around you which has need- like the destitute,homeless,orphans,etc.
So much for being proud of "achievements". He must not know what so saith the Lord? Reassigning a definition to something does not make it so any more than a man saying he feels like a woman changes him. Reality check. Are people so caught up in fantasy that they are unable to discern the obvious? Please don't legalize any more drugs and lay off the entertainment pollution. This must be the plot to control the population - creating ones own reality. It would have been laughed at by the world years ago.
Moses and David repented and did not continue in their sin. I don't think that the comparison holds. This does smell of an agenda,however. It doesn't surprise me that Graham would endorse Trump. They have much in common on the surface and probably even much more in common behind closed doors. Maybe they belong to the same "clubs". At the very least,the rich and "famous" always have each others back. There has to be the semblance of division among them. I do hope that they would receive salvation.
