President Trump was recently asked about his Christian faith.
It stirred a lot of controversy.
President Trump has surrounded himself with Christian leaders.
He has implemented Christian policies.
Everybody approved of the Supreme Court nominations, the pro-life stance, the persecuted church stance, pro-Israel position, religious liberty protections and more.
The White House is filled with prayer and Bible studies. Vice President Pence, Mike Pompeo, the Secretary of State, and many others are evangelistic and almost everyone supports the church leaders and politicians. So, in the last four years – and with COVID 19 – how is President Trump’s walk with God.
1. Regarding COVID-19, here is what Trump has said:
“It was amazing to see so many great Americans who reached out and said they were praying for me and my family. This country is full of wonderful people with strong faith in God. Melania and I felt the prayers of Americans from all across the country – and even around the world. When I was at Walter Reed, I said, ‘There were miracles coming down from heaven.’ I meant it – Melania and I are very thankful to God for looking out for our family and returning us to good health.”
2. Regarding President Trump’s relationship with evangelical leaders:
“I am honored to work with many Americans of faith, including our great Vice President Mike Pence, Faith Advisor Paula White, and so many others. These people truly love our country and love God. I hear and listen to them. Earlier this month, Franklin Graham and some other great faith leaders came to the Oval Office to pray for me and our country as they often do. These amazing people love the U.S.A. and have a genuine desire to work together for the betterment of all Americans. These leaders are passionate about America’s traditional values and want our churches to be open. I appreciate their prayers and am encouraged by their great faith.”
3. How President Trump currently considers his religious affiliation:
“I grew up going to church with my family in New York City. My parents taught me the importance of faith and prayer from a young age. Though I was confirmed at a Presbyterian church as a child, I now consider myself to be a non-denominational Christian. Melania and I have gotten to visit some amazing churches and meet with great faith leaders from around the world. During the unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak, I tuned into several virtual church services and know that millions of Americans did the same. Thankfully, many great churches are now back open and meeting in person. In fact, just this past weekend I visited the International Church of Las Vegas and enjoyed a beautiful service.”
