    Can't wait till he gets to the passage, "I would not have you, ignorant brethren..."

    :D

    Maybe he'll finally read Psalm 139:13-17.

    We can disagree with our POTUS until we're blue in the face, and, for the most part, rightly so. But I won't even begin to use my diagreement with him as an excuse to mock his personal faith. That's just not appropriate.

    I'm surprised no one has said, "The problem is he isn't using the KJV!!"

    I wonder why this kind of thing is such a big issue. We didn't elect a Pastor-in-Chief. Who cares if he has daily devotions or not.

    The Presidency of the United States is not a spiritual office. Why do we make such a big deal about it?

    I dunno.

    True, but I'd still rather have a godly man in office?

    I am sure his devotionals consist of stuff like the following:


    "Thou shalt not spew CO2 into the heavens for this is an abomination."

    Isn't Reinhold Neibuhr neo-orthodox?

    Well, the quickest lie that is told by too many politicians is that they are "Bible believing" Christians...then they go out and have affairs and cheat people out of money.

    While having godly people in office or business is nice, it isn't a deal breaker. We so often forget that according to the NT our rulers are placed over us by God. Doesn't matter much to me if a man does or doesn't have devotions. It is far more interesting to me if a person says they have them in order to trick people into thinking them better, but doesn't actually do them.
