    At our church we have a prayer team. If anyone needs prayer they can pray with the team after worship.
    The Sunday before election day I went up to the man on the prayer team. I told him that I was troubled about the election, there was nobody that I could vote for in good conscience. He said, "don't worry, just think about how great it will be if Trump gets elected".

    I went to my pastor and said "I'm discouraged by the trump support in church."
    He said "I know how you feel, I felt the same when Obama was elected."

There are only 2 in my church who don't venerate trump. My wife and myself. We sit in a sea of trumphats. I had to leave out of disgust.

    As I said, there is a huge difference, then, between what you have personally experienced and what the majority of Christians here at Tweb are saying. So please use do not accuse every Christian that you meet of being a Trump supporter.

    Timothy,

    I actively campaigned against Trump in the primaries. No one in my family voted for him in the primaries. But, when faced with Hillary or Trump, I almost literally held my nose and voted for him. Since he has been POTUS, I have not approved of a lot of his tweets, and statements, but, I don't know of any immoral act he has done since becoming president.

    1) What immoral acts do you think he has done in the last 3 years since being elected?


    2) I assume you do not believe the reports of his (possible) conversion to Christianity?

    Okay.
    Can you tell me who to talk to who is not a Trump supporter? Or am I really the only one?

    Don't do this, please.
    I would tell you the latest outrageous act and you would say fake news, all in the past, not a pastor.

    I don't need that. You either have eyes to see or you don't.

    I want to know I'm not the only Christian who isn't all in for Trump.
