I dispise how many who claimed the name of Christ actually tie their faith so strongly to American politics. Was President Obama, Clinton, Carter, Johnson or Kennedy... were any of these men absolute demons or Devils because they belong to the Democratic party? Of course not. Are political positions of the democratic party that satanic? No! It seems that only Billy Graham was able to pull off showing respect and honor to any president regardless of his party. With that said, President Trump, our president is an overtly immoral human being. None of that is confusing. None of that is lost on any of us. Would voting for Hillary Clinton have been that bad? This whole thing has missed the cross of Jesus Christ, which I thought was the point of our faith, and the fact that this world is not our home! Why do we focus on such things, when we should be focusing on other things? I am not in any way shape or form advocating ignoring this world. We live in this world, and we must engage it in ways that reflect the truth of who we are and what we're trying to do while in this world. And I do believe this includes civic engagement. However painful, ridiculous conversations around right-wing and left-wing political ideologies is terrible, demonizing people win in all truth we're all falling. I think we pay lip service to that idea, when we demonize those who support abortion or gay marriage or other things that are also unbiblical and ungodly. We quote Romans saying all that sin, but we really don't mean it. if we truly understood what Grace gives us, I think we would not be focusing on the things that we focus on.

Firstly, we are not to judge anyone that is Gods business and His job. President Trump asked forgivness of his sins just because hes bold minded and open minded does not mean he's less of a person than you or me. President Trump is NOT BEING CALLED A LORD. Yes he tweets harsh things sometimes well so dont many people and christians but that doesnt say noone is less of a christian. Millions of people prayed for that man to become President for a reason.. to bring back American standards under God. If clinton got in do you honestly think for one minute you and I would have the freedoms we have now ? God places the least perfect people to do His will to work out His plans. Not for one minute are any of us perfect and we all fall short of Gods glory. God has his back and all those who trust in Him and believe He sent His Son Jesus to save us all. The only one to be praised and honored is God His Son for all goodness and freedoms we have. We must pray for all leaders and hold them up to the throne. Pres. Trump is doing a fine job and if obama can have his blueberry then Trump should be able to tweet. I just wish and pray he would tweet some nicer things but God put him in..and Trump is right about fake news.. thats why Fox is watched here. You can tell what news outlet is good n bad if you just watch the differences. God is Good all the time. Be thankful God placed Trump in. And i do think Jesus is coming back soon all evil is being exposed... pray for Trump dont bash hin or judge hin. Because you will be judged just the same. God Bless!!

I am responding to this question as someone who takes praying for those in authority seriously. My first example in honoring leadership comes from King David and his relationship to Saul. He would not touch the Lord's anointed and neither should we. 1 Peter 2:17 says "Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king. I don't agree with everything the president says or does--to the contrary. But I also know that criticizing those in authority under the guise of sharing "my opinion" negates my prayers. Faith works by love. So, no Dr. Brown. A lot of us evangelicals don't agree with everything our president does. We believe in praying and standing in faith that what he will do will glorify God.

Choosing the lesser of two evils is still evil. Shall we think we can align with evil and that good will come of it?

I take your point that some 'christians' have replaced Jesus with President Trump. That said, God put President Trump in the WhiteHouse and He uses seriously flawed people for His purposes. If God uses a President as abrasive as this to prevent Churches from being forced to perform 'marriage' ceremonies for sodomites or providing insurance that kills unborn babies, then good. I'm sure I don't need to remind you of the seriously flawed leaders that God placed over Israel. The Church in America (even as nominal as most are) is under attack, and has been for my entire life. While I may not 'like' the president as a person or approve of his life, he seems to be protecting Christianity and has my support for that. He also has my prayers for his salvation & growth in God. If he were an acquaintance of mine, I may be obligated to comment on those aspects. He is not, so I don't. And if I were to, it would be less than Christian to discuss it with the public without going to him personally first. The vast majority of the 'problems' with the President's less than perfect life are brought up by people who are disingenuous and only trying to stir up trouble. These are the same people that say killing babies is good for the environment at the same time they say we need to import unskilled workers to prop up SocialSecurity. Their goal is to 'trap' you into opposing the President by saying that you can't be a 'good' Christian while supporting someone who does <outrage of the day>. Don't fall for it. Don't feed the trolls.
