    Cal Thomas interviewed Trump on a variety of topics. The conversation turned to his faith.

    Cal Thomas: Every president has called upon God at some point. Lincoln spoke of not being able to hold the office of the presidency without spending time on his knees. You have confessed that you are a Christian …

    Donald Trump: And I have also won much evangelical support.

    CT: Yes, I know that. You have said you never felt the need to ask for God’s forgiveness, and yet repentance for one’s sins is a precondition to salvation. I ask you the question Jesus asked of Peter: Who do you say He is?

    DT: I will be asking for forgiveness, but hopefully I won’t have to be asking for much forgiveness. As you know, I am Presbyterian and Protestant. I’ve had great relationships and developed even greater relationships with ministers. We have tremendous support from the clergy. I think I will be doing very well during the election with evangelicals and with Christians. In the Middle East — and this is prior to the migration — you had almost no chance of coming into the United States. Christians from Syria, of which there were many, many of their heads … chopped off. If you were a Muslim from Syria, it was one of the easiest places to come in (to the U.S.). I thought that was deplorable. I’m going to treat my religion, which is Christian, with great respect and care.

    CT: Who do you say Jesus is?

    DT: Jesus to me is somebody I can think about for security and confidence. Somebody I can revere in terms of bravery and in terms of courage and, because I consider the Christian religion so important, somebody I can totally rely on in my own mind.

    Ahhh, Jesus is a teddy bear and a security blanket...isn't that special??

    Truly sad. This man is as lost as a canoe on the high seas in the middle of a hurricane. He sounds so little trying to be big in the face of Jesus Christ. And yet, he is nowhere near understanding how close he is to an eternal lake of fire.:Cry

    He sounds like Standard American Pagan, aka member of one of the mainline denominations.

    Jesus is somebody that Trump can use. Trump has got a lot of evangelical support. Once Jesus gets on board with what Trump is doing there will be no stopping him!

    Okay, that, literally, caused me to laugh out loud. And when I read it I read it in the Church Lady's voice! :D:D:D:D:D
