    Trumpís presidency was a divine plan

    Interesting stuff:

    Are you there, God? Itís me, Arwa, and I have a question. Namely, is it true you wanted Donald Trump to become president? Because that is what Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, is saying. And, while the idea may sound wholly implausible, I really canít imagine Sanders would lie.

    If youíre not God, and youíre wondering what on earth Iím talking about, I refer you to the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN). Sanders recently told CBN that she believes it was God that put Trump in power rather than, you know, any of that Russian collusion malarkey.

    I'd be interested in knowing if anyone here agrees with Sanders on this.

    The article could "oh my. someone still believes that God exists."

    Isn't it funny that how the writer didn't even know that the US is never supposed to be a democracy?

    Sanders may know better than any of us whether God has chosen Trump to help preserve the nation. What would be wrong with that?

    The other odd thing is that people would be so concerned that Sanders expresses this viewpoint. Go figure.

    While I don't know if God has specifically selected Trump for anything, the Bible clearly demonstrates that folks nobody would ever think of being someone He would use often get selected. Look at Paul for instance. He delighted in hunting down and dragging Christians back to be persecuted. As he said

    Scripture Verse: Acts 22:20


    And when the blood of Stephen your witness was being shed, I myself was standing by and approving and watching over the garments of those who killed him.í

    Who would ever think that such a man would be selected by God to be his greatest spokesman for the religion he had been gleefully oppressing.

    Now, don't get me wrong here, I'm definitely not saying that Trump is another Paul. Far, far from it. But rather it is not impossible for Trump to be selected for some purpose by God. A wise man once told me that God doesn't call the equipped but equips the called.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    The thread title is a bit misleading. God's divine plan is that Jesus Christ was provided to seek and to save those which were lost, to purchase for them redemption and to live eternally with Him.

    In the course of that plan, God uses people and circumstances. That's what Sarah was saying -- here's her exact quote.

    "I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president, and that's why he's there," Sanders told CBN's David Brody and Jennifer Wishon, according to a transcript of the interview provided by CBN.

    "I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about," Sanders added.


    That's a far cry from saying that "Trumpís presidency was a divine plan". If, in fact, Trump was part of God's plan, it's a very small role in the overall scheme of things.

    And God said he sets up governments as he pleases, and the guardians he allows in place will answer to him for everything. He even says he destroys governments as well.

    EVERYBODY will answer to God, sooner or later.

    And sometimes a nation gets the government it deserves.

    While the liberals moan about what an immoral man Trump is, it's interesting to note that the immoral things they cite are things in the past. He seems to be taking a break from being a total reprobate.

    Sure, Trump is doing lots of things the liberals don't like, but so would anybody who wasn't championing their agenda.

    And this nutty idea that conservatives - particularly Christians - are giving him a pass on his morality, he wasn't running against anybody who was a pillar of virtue.

    The choice was - do we vote for somebody who will most certainly be an enabler of the culture of death, or somebody who might actually stand up against it, and for issues Christians hold dear.

    One gets the impression that you are giving him a pass. I see no criticism at all, no mention of family separations though you said you were against it. The body slam stuff, the lies.... No wonder some people think you are a supporter.

    Family separations were happening long before Trump as has been demonstrated in other threads.

    One? Perhaps the internet s think that.

    There is plenty of that going on - no need for me to pile on. And, since I said I'm against it, that could be a clue!

    No wonder people think you are a Nanny. Back in the car, Chuck!
