Trump, The Bible and CBN
The buzz for Donald Trump's possible presidential run continues to grow louder.
Now, we have an interview by CBN's David Brody, in which The Donald gives his views on Scripture and church.
I imagine there will be a few evangelicals taken in by this kind of God-talk, but I am hopeful that the stupid virus hasn't metastasized to stage four in the Christian body politic yet. Donald Trump is fun to watch sometimes. He's a successful businessman and expert at getting media attention. But for the presidency? I don't think so. And there's more to being a genuine Christian than "Sunday Go To Meetin," even at a Presbyterian church. Donald Trump is hardly known for his passion for a biblical Christian faith.
The late Pat Paulsen was known for his perennial presidential runs, albeit in a more comedic light. Then again, the current presidency is a daily routine that would be comedic if it wasn't so tragic for the country.
Donald Trump has every right to run for office if he wishes. For the sake of the GOP, I hope he gives up the notion pronto.
