Trump No Less Pious Necessarily Than Average Christian
In contemplation as to whether or not Donald Trump is a Christian, Pastor Sean Harris of Berean Baptist Church in a SermonAudio podcast alleged the presidential candidate has not produced any fruit testifying to such.
As an example, this pastor did not offer any proof such as Trump enunciating an errant Christological profession or even the tycoon's shocking confession that he did not have any sins needing forgiveness.
Rather, the criteria referenced by Harris included no proof of regular church attendance, lack of a spirit of generosity, and lack of fidelity to a single woman.
How is charity being defined?
By the tossing of money at a particular cause or organization with no expectation of anything in return?
By that definition, the financial oblation many believers place in the collection plate each week doesn't count either.
For most are doing that for the purposes of curring favor with God or to workout some kind of arrangement between the taxman and/or the church leadership.
Secondly, it must be admitted that Trump's conjugal relationships are less than ideal.
However, unlike Bill Gothard, Josh Duggar, Jack Schaap, at least Trump seems to be attracted to woman over the age of consent or not beneath him on an organizational flowchart where the occupational statuses of the objects of his desire are not threatened if they spurn his advances.
