    I had actually typed up a much longer response, then deleted it, because I thought it would be pretty much a waste of time.

    However, if that's the way you want to see it - that this is just "ends justifies the means" - that's fine with me, because I have no interest in a battle with you on this, Jim.

    If God can speak through an ass, I have no problem with God using (or allowing) somebody like Trump to promote His objectives.

    Remember, Trump is temporal, and will soon be off the stage. In the meantime, I'm commanded to pray with those who rule over us.

    Have you ever considered that, when Paul wrote to Timothy about this (1 Tim 2), EVERY ruler in his day was a pagan? (How bout NERO?) Yet he said,

    Scripture Verse: 1 Tim 2

    "First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, 2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. 3 This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."

    I honestly believe that if Christians were to pray for Trump with greater energy than they exercised to condemn him, God might do a tremendous work in our Nation --- not BECAUSE of Trump, but because of who God is.

    Jim. I hate the murder of babies before they are born. I do not hate you nor do I hate your political leanings. I frankly don't care about your political leanings, except to the extent they are so focused on what you hate about Trump that you can't see the forest for the trees.

    I notice that you did not address the point I brought up about not being able to see the good in an action regardless of what the motives may or may not be.

    Look back a few posts mossy. I was quite clear to say that I thought what had been done in california was a good thing.

    Did you miss that? It was two posts before your original post and well either you or cp's comments about being unable to comment on the good things.

    I saw that post, Jim. I still stand on what I said in a general sense.

    Too bad. Just remember there are more posts of mine on these pages marking good things Trump has done than there are kind comments from any one of you that support trump that are aimed my direction

    I for one have not mentioned you AT ALL in this thread regarding anything, and I rarely engage with you anywhere else because you are wearing blinders about everything that President Trump does. Perhaps you are projecting from some guilt you feel about how you have treated the rest of your fellow believers on this site since Trump became president.

    At any rate, I won't be engaging with you anymore in this thread. Carry on with your rants.

    rant ... Defending myself against the rant that I'm insane and incapable of acknowledging any good thing about trump - when in fact I said something was good that he did in this very thread - is a 'rant'.

    You gotta just love it.

    A popular meme from liberals who aren't in full denial says, "Why did Trump have to be the first politician actually keeps his promises?"

    He attended a pro-life event and by all accounts gave a great speech. What is it about these "means" that concerns you?
