Skip to comments.Trump is more religious than people realize -- and better for religious people, too

It is with optimism and hopeful anticipation that I head out to a meeting President Trump is hosting Thursday for religious leaders. There is a reason for my optimism. Although he doesn't get credit for it, Trump is far more religious than many people realize.
In my conversations with pastors who have personally ministered to him, I have been made aware that he's extraordinarily open to the word of God, to the power of prayer, and to growing in the life of the spirit. In other words, he is tuned into the Lord's movement in his life. This is great news. An open heart and mind and a teachable spirit are vital characteristics for good leadership.
Trump has been able to resonate and connect with people on a very profound level. A non-polished, non-politician was able to break through the red tape and surprise everybody by getting elected. People heard him speak and they jumped to their feet because he echoed what they were thinking and feeling. His style is refreshingly void of any trace of political correctness. People desperately want a leader who tells it like it is; they tired of moral compromise and are hungry for unvarnished truth.
The same approach that works with Trump needs to be employed by religious leaders, and in this sense, his meeting with us Thursday should be a fresh call to our own freedom of spirit. We need to tell the uncompromising truth and tell it like it is. We must refuse to be handcuffed and stifled by political correctness.

Donald in many ways acts like a man that God spoke to.
If I had to nitpick, I am hearing Donald make some “is” statements that would more accurately be “ought” statements. America is in pretty sad shape spiritually. It does worship government. It ought not to. But even if Donald says that we don’t, it’s going on. Donald needs to say that we SHOULDN’T.

We voted for Donald Trump and all his abilities and policies, and we (seemingly) got an added bonus of (a pseudo) Ben Carson tossed in on the side.
God works in mysterious ways folks.

Thanks....but in this case I think it’s worth a second post.
All the more reason for us to pray for our President.
Thanks for posting this. I missed it yesterday.
