Trump: 'In America, we don't worship government, we worship God'
President Trump says Americans donât worship government, they should call evil by its name and times are âchanging backâ to an earlier era when the nationâs founders âinvoked our Creator four times in the Declaration of Independence.â
His comments came Friday at the Value Voters Summit in Washington, D.C., an annual gathering of the nationâs leading conservative and faith organizations, where he spoke just a year ago as a candidate. Heâs the first sitting president to address the group.
âWe know that itâs the family and the church, not government officials, that know best how to create strong and loving communities. And above all else, we know this: In America, we donât worship government â we worship God,â he said.
âInspired by that conviction, we are returning moral clarity to our view of the world and the many grave challenges we face.â...

âBigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,â .... âWe've seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty. At times, it can seem like the forces pulling us apart are stronger than the forces binding us together.
âWe've seen nationalism distorted into nativism. Forgotten the dynamism immigration has always brought to America. The fading value of trade,â ... âWe've seen the return of isolationist sentiments forgetting that American security is directly threatened by the chaos and despair of distant places where threats such as terrorism, infectious disease, criminal gangs and drug trafficking tend to emerge. In all these ways, we need to recall and recover our own identity.â
... "People are hurting....We must hear and help them but we cannot wish globalization away any more than we could wish away the agricultural revolution or the industrial revolution."
Sodomites can legally marry in America, babies are murdered daily, idolatry is rampant, apostate religion is more popular than biblical Christianity, yet America worships 'God'?!? America worships the 'god of their understanding', which is nothing like the God of the bible. Trump is an unregenerate sinner and knows what words to use to appease the 'evangelicals' that supported him. IF America worshipped the God of the bible, infanticide would cease, sodomites would be driven back into their closets, and sinners everywhere would hear the command to repent and believe. Pornography would not enslave millions, adultery would be spoken out against, as would materialism, the love of money, etc. This is nothing more than Trump doing what he does best.....blowing out hot air.
As Need Him rightly said, there is NO KING BUT CHRIST!! He raises nations up, and He brings them down.
Hmmm. I read this last night and waited to comment, curious to see if anyone else would. Let me relate my first thought after reading bro Needhim's post: I didn't read it as a reminder, I read it as a mere fact; the repeating of a great proclamation and taking comfort in the fact that He is always in charge, no matter what we see all around us, no matter how bleak things may seem...
NeedHim wrote: Regardless who is in power in the White House, their is no King but Christ alone. For all others fail & fall short of His Sinless, Holy Glory alone amen. 1 Chro 16:26 For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the Lord made the heavens. PS 96:4-5 For the Lord is great & greatly to be praised; He is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the Lord made the heavens.
the people who post here were ignorant of this or needed to be reminded because it had slipped their minds?

Raining on everyone's parade. Nations aren't born again, nor reborn again. Individuals are born again, and the nations they live in benefit. And not everyone in the nation need be a Christian for them to to be blessed by their presence.

Just as Hurricane Irma could have been worse, We could have been hit by Hurricane Hitlery- so storms of Trumpism can be a blessing as you say- " Irma hit the Florida mainland as a powerful category 3 storm and caused widespread wind and flood damage. The storm was not as strong as had been predicted, but it was far from âdeadâ! The Bible teaches that God is in direct control of ânature.â âThe LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feetâ Nahum 1:3 - Cloud rebuked Copeland false prophecy of no hurt from Irma- In same way Amerikanism " country rock " type of religion still needs rebuke to wake up - Eph 5:11-"rebuke" was Cloud's theme this week - "better?-an enemy of the best"- wayoflife.org

IE While I have to sadly think many naive and gullible people who profess to believe will get real excited thinking we are headed to a great Revival
In my previous post I wanted to point to the Mercy and Sovereignty of God using this imperfect President to give His people opportunity to leave the safety of their "pristine churches" to actually go out into a dirty and dark world with the light of the Gospel
Please do humbly thank God for His mercy to us and to everyone who will hear the Gospel and Believe in Jesus Christ in this opportunity we have right now, and not squander it away complaining and fault finding. People simply will never believe in Jesus Christ if they have never heard of Him, and if we don't have the enthusiasm to speak up and preach the Gospel now what makes us delude ourselves when things get imaginably worse that somehow we will finally get up off our blessed assurances and go into places we don't want to go, to give a message we haven't been willing to give, a message sin loving people haven't wanted to hear and treat it as important, life and death realities when they see THEY WEREN'T THAT Important to us?

"Speaking before a crowd at a Living Victory conference on September 9, Kenneth Copeland claimed that America is in the process of being born again and that President Donald Trump is evidence thereof. Copeland said, âBut hear me, judgment against the United States ended on January 20, 2017 [with Trumpâs inauguration]. ... How long has it been since a man has prayer people coming into the oval office on a regular basis and laying hands on the president and praying for him in tongues. I donât know if it has ever happened. Donald Trump donât know no better [sic]. Heâs been born again for a long time, but he just recently totally, absolutely committed his life to Jesus. ... The word of the Lord came to me, and he said, âAll the trouble you are seeing in these United States, these are birth pangs for the rebirth of this nation.â America is in the birth process right now of being born againâ
Now for all of us who read these news reports, I urge you and pray for you and ask/beg you to pray along with me ; that you (we) would not receive this grace of God to speak freely about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in vain, and waste the opportunity we are being given here.
I trust you already know, the battle is going to heat up, and the joyful victory of obedience to Jesus, to preach publicly in His name, pray in His name, speak of His name, to teach of Him to people, especially children, teens and their parents and teachers, who Satan seeks to prevent ever hearing of Him, will be more than worth it
