According to a recent news report, as well evangelical faith leader Dr. James Dobson, Trump has accepted Christ as his savior.
While the left-wing will use this as just an example of Trump pandering to conservatives, the Bible is very clear on the divine’s view of repentance. In fact, Luke 15:10 states: “In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
Dobson, as well as 900 evangelical leaders, met with Trump recently, and came away thinking that “he really made a commitment” to the Lord, recently, and emphasized that “we all need to be praying for him.”
While Dobson believes Trump’s faith is genuine, he still acknowledges that the presidential candidate is a “baby Christian,” and will need time to learn and grow in his newfound faith. Dobson went on to talk about Trump’s recent conversion:
“I think that he’s open. He doesn’t know our language, he really doesn’t, and he refers a lot to religion and not much to faith and belief… You’ve got to cut him some slack. He didn’t grow up like we did. I think there’s hope for him, and I think there’s hope for us. I have great concerns about the next election.”
Along with 40 other leaders, Dobson was able to have a private sit-down with Trump. To Dobson’s surprise, they were all caught off-guard by Trump’s kindness, and personality:
“He’s a lot nicer guy than you think. I think he is listening. There were a lot of people ministering to him personally… He’s sometimes kind of obscure in the way that he answers questions, and we wanted to ask him directly, with follow-up questions.”
Liberals and the left-wing media will make this seem as though Trump is simply trying to get votes, but God is the only one who knows matters of the heart. For those who think Trump cannot change, I implore you to read the story of the Saul (who became Paul). Sometimes God uses the unlikeliest of people to do the most incredible things.
We hope that Donald Trump’s conversion is real, and we’ll be praying for him. Remember to pray for the future of our country as well. Elections are important, but they also come in four year intervals. If Christians truly want to change the culture we have to be about the work of Jesus in our communities, and not just on the campaign trail.
Please share with others so they can hear the good news, and remember to pray for our nation.
