Many Christians, especially those who ‘know the lingo,’ have doubted Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump’s claims to professing Christianity. We know it’s not our call nor our place to judge, but when Trump speaks of not needing or asking God’s forgiveness and drinking “my little wine”and having “my little cracker” as “a form of asking for forgiveness,” or when he refers to Paul’s second letter to the church at Corinth as “Two Corinthians,” there is certainly room, even among Trump’s biggest supporters (and this writer is one!), to wonder.
Well, wonder no more.
According to Focus on the Family founder Dr. James Dobson, who attended this week’s “faith leader” meeting with the candidate at Trump Tower in New York City, Donald Trump has accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.
If this is genuine, than Donald Trump is indeed a Christian, albeit a new one – which, incidentally, would explain his previous lingo lapses.
Dobson, in fact, knows the person who recently led the billionaire to Christ. In an exclusive interview with Godfactor’s Michael Anthony, Dobson said, “I don’t know when it was, but it has not been long. I believe he really made a commitment, but he’s a baby Christian. We all need to be praying for him, especially if there’s a possibility of him being our next chief executive officer.”
“I think that he’s open,” Dobson said. “He doesn’t know our language, he really doesn’t, and he refers a lot to religion and not much to faith and belief.”
When Anthony responded with the Biblical example of Saul’s conversion to Christianity on the Damascus Road and that fact that he probably didn’t know the language either, Dobson responded, “Yeah, well you’ve got to cut him some slack. He didn’t grow up like we did. I think there’s hope for him, and I think there’s hope for us. I have great concerns about the next election.”
Dobson described Trump as a “lot nicer guy than you [think]. I think he is listening. There were a lot of people ministering to him personally,” and the event as a group that was “genuinely seeking the Lord’s direction” and asking Trump hard follow-up questions to his sometimes obscure answers.
Only two people can really know the truth, of course, but anyone who doubts God’s capacity to work His sovereign will in this world is sorely misjudging God.
