    Just a couple of notes from the meeting:

    "At the beginning of the day, a speaker had prayed that, "If there is to be a coronation today, let it be of Jesus as King."


    "There is none of us that are perfect," Graham said. "There's no perfect person — there's only one, and that's the Lord Jesus Christ...."

    These evangelicals get together and figure out a way to bring people to the GOP; ought to be figuring out ways to bring people to Jesus.

    One would think that a candidate would at least mention Christ when addressing the representatives of a religious bloc.

    Trump is nominally a Presbyterian and Presbyterians are only nominally Christians. I wouldn't expect much scriptural truth from him. OTOH Obama says he's a Christian, misuses scripture like a muslim posing as a Christian, but he says the "right" words. Hillary and Christian shouldn't be used in the same paragraph, let alone the same sentence. Her fruits are all rotten.

    Fine bunch running the country and hoping to.

    Which one will God use to accomplish his purpose? Hopefully not Hillary. Another 8 years of someone, evil to the core, trying to destroy the country and deny Christians the opportunity to exercise their faith would just about do us in.

    Hopefully, He'll use a sinful man named Donald Trump to accomplish His purposes if we are to continue to be a nation where the 1st amendment means anything.

    If not. His will be done. The end is in sight.

    I personally am attending both a Baptist church and a Presbyterian church, because my new wife is a member of one. I was baptized in an SBC church and have mostly attended SBC over the years.

    Would have to say that some Presbyterians are followers of the Social Gospel, some are what I'd consider Bible-believing Christians. It's true that most conservative Christians have departed.

    They are definitely different from my own experience, but I would hesitate to call them nominally Christian.

    My own two cents worth.

    Right, because you have access to what she does out of the public eye.



    And what about hers?:Whistling

    It WILL be Hillary because you and folks like you deserve her.;) Told ya'll years ago that God will continue to give us exactly what we don't want because we continue to wickedly dishonor Him, and then try to act like we're representing Him with the wickedness.:rolleyes:

    Prayerfully, He'll use which ever one perplexes His children to the point of repentance.

    Not because of an election, but definitely because of a disobedient church as was the same with a disobedient ISrael. When God's people become more of a detriment than an asset in seeing folks come to faith in Christ, then it's time to get us out of the way the same way He did with Israel.

    Nobody here pays any attention at all to your predictions of what God will do.

    Listen to Trunews dated yesterday and Rick Wiles paints a different picture than what Starns does. I like Starns but not sure if he is completely honest on this one.

    It's already been proven that Stearns is lying. Even the thread title is a lie.

    Seems to be Carpro's go-to statement when he's put into a box.

    Your problem is that, I suppose to feel better about your argument, you must make things personal against the individual who does not see things your way. Your comments toward Zaac and me in this thread are evidence of this.

    You need to lighten up and not be so offended that not everyone agrees with you.

    If you hate Trump enough to post lies, that's your problem. Just don't expect not to be called on them.

    So are you suggesting these evangelicals only work to bring people to the GOP and never work to bring people to Christ?

    Trump and Christian shouldn't be used in the same sentence.
