WATCH: President Trump Give Powerful Speech Over the Weekend, “Our Country Needs a Savior Right Now and Our Country Has a Savior. And It’s Not Me.”
President Trump claims to be a Christian man. When someone makes a claim like that, I as a Christian, pay attention to whether or not that person’s life mirrors that of the way a Christian should live.
No one is perfect and the first person I look to in order to prove that is myself. I fail time and time again, but thankfully God is always there to pick me up.
President Trump is by no means a perfect man. Atheists who are critical of Christians are normally quick to look for any imperfection with a person who claims to be a Christian in order to point it out and claim that they’re hypocrites. The truth is that being a Christian doesn’t magically give us some ability to follow Jesus perfectly. We still fail and to claim that we’re hypocrites for making mistakes misses the point of being a Christian.
He came to save those who are sinners, not those who are perfect. While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Being a Christian means being adopted into the family of God and to anyone who proclaims Christ is Lord, I’m going to take them at their word without being overly critical to try and decide if they’re really in the family by how perfectly they follow God’s law. So I’ll give President Trump the benefit of the doubt.
During a speech at First Baptist Church in Dallas, TX this weekend, President Trump gave an awesome statement:
“More than 2000 years ago, an angel of the Lord appeared and it’s been a long a beautiful history. But an angel of the Lord appeared to humble shepherds and proclaimed the reason for our Christmas joy. for unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior which is Christ the Lord. Now when I was listening to Robert, perhaps unknowingly you used the word savior a lot and our country needs a savior right now, and…that’s not me, that’s somebody much higher up than me, much higher up. We just do what we have to do. But the life and death and resurrection of Jesus Christ forever changed the world.”
