    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.
    I dont disagree with you on the prayer thing CP. But I do disagree with supporting him in his immorality. And the two are not mutually exclusive. Praying for Trump does not mean I give him a pass on extorting Ukraine.

    Can you show where I have EVER done that?

    Somebody who's sincerely praying for somebody else tends to show a bit more charity toward that person.

    So far, all we've heard is the prosecution. It's never wise to take a decision on only one side's testimony.

    Right.
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    I am not totally convinced Bad Orange Man is sincere about being Pro-Life, or about anything else. I DON'T FLIPPIN' CARE!!!

    We Christians have generally assumed Ronny Raygun and Mr. Misunderestimated were sincere. (Many of us had some doubts about Daddy Bush.) None of them really *did* much, and none had the... "stuff"... to actually attend.

    Give me a self-serving faker who says and does the right things above a sincere guy who's cowardly and feckless.

    Pseudo intellectual? JD Magna cum laud and Head of the Harvard law review. That's some veneer. Trump is straight up corrupt, and always has been. Some day, if you don't already know it, you'll find that out too.

    CP, there is no doubt trump did what he is accused of. The man lies about everything.

    Or did you not notice the recording of Trump having lunch and extended conversations about Ukraine with lev parnas. The man trump 'doesn't even know'
