Christian people support Trump

DEAR EDITOR:

Today people are awestruck by the overwhelming support of Christians for President Donald Trump.

But most Americans understand why those from the Democratic Party who booed God at the 2012 DNC just don’t get it.

The complete shock of Trump’s win, followed quickly by the Gorsuch nomination, forged a bond between Christians and Trump that isn’t easy to break.

Believers understand the Bible says God installs and removes kings, or presidents in this case. That doesn’t mean God manipulates the vote count. It means God uses leaders to further his will for his divine purpose.

On that note, I believe Barack Obama was chosen specifically to be used by God as a theoretical magnifying glass, helping us to see how debased we are as a nation. Many Americans voted for a man who ushered in anti-Christian policies like Obama’s support for taxpayer-funded abortions and other policies which in turn unleashed hell on Christian bakers, the Little Sisters of the Poor and Hobby Lobby. Obama wasn’t a friend to Israel, either.

If Obama was God’s choice for America, then so is Donald Trump.

Then, against all odds and effort from all sides to take him down, Trump won.

And those with calloused knees rose from their tear-stained prayer closets, believing that God heard their cries and answered their prayers in the strangest of ways.

Six months in, they note tremendous accomplishments.

Despite all the chaos stirred by the anti-Trump left, supporters have watched Trump tear down Obama’s figurative anti-American polices. Even without a wall, they feel safer, with border security markedly improved, illegal border crossings greatly reduced and sanctuary cities put on notice.

While the left and establishment folks run down Russia rabbit holes, Trump is quietly reshaping America’s judicial system for years to come, naming many young conservatives nominees to the federal bench, and Neil Gorsuch.

While they are preoccupied with special investigations, Trump is unshackling the free market from senseless regulations, allowing the economy to expand, jobs to increase and the stock market to rise.

Supporters understand that Trump is making good-faith attempts to keep his promises, despite a recalcitrant Congress and GOP Judases like John McCain, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins.

Trump signed an executive order in May to protect religious liberty. In response, Little Sisters of the Poor’s Mother Loraine said, “Today we are grateful for the president’s order and look forward to … caring for the elderly poor and dying as if they were Christ himself without fear of government punishment.”

Why, in Heaven’s name, would Christians walk away?

Rest assured, the same God who raised up Trump will keep him in office as long as he sees fit.
