Vice President Mike Pence stunned many in talking about President Trump’s faith.
“What is going on – spiritually – at the White House?” asked CBN commentator David Brody. Mike Pence replied, “Let me be clear: President Trump is a believer, and so am I.”
When I first met Mike Pence, he was still a congressman. He said to me, “I’m a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order.”
Pence is a man of prayer… He always prays with others, including the president.
He also sponsors a weekly Bible study in the White House, attended by many cabinet secretaries, and led by Ralph Drollinger, a pastor and retired pro basketball player who played for the UCLA Bruins under legendary coach John Wooden.
What all of this means:
- To be a Christian means to believe that you are separated from God by sin and that the only remedy for that separation is through the salvation made possible by the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ on the cross.
- Pence believes that Donald Trump has also been born again by trusting Christ as his personal Lord and Savior.
It’s important to keep in mind that when one becomes a Christian later in life, outward changes in behavior are usually slow to become noticeable.
Trump wasn’t raised in a Christian environment… He has 70 years of pride, arrogance, non-Christian language and bad habits to overcome.
Think of the conversion of Saul in the book of Acts. Many disciples of Jesus were skeptical that he had really become a believer due to his violent past behavior.
Saul spent 14 years in the Arabian desert while God gradually changed him into the Apostle Paul.
