In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders says she believes God wanted Donald Trump to become president.
The outrage and ridicule that followed in the national media was predictable.
In fact, much of the media responded by quoting a tweet by Pastor David Lewicki, who served, at New York City's Marble Collegiate Church for about five years when Donald Trump was a member. In reference to Trump, he said he never actually entered the church, "Not one time."
Of course, Sanders wasn't talking about the President's church attendance. She was referencing the Bible. Romans 13:1 - "Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God."
A LOT of Jews and Christians may disagree with their leaders, but they pray for them and depend on God to either guide them - or provide the pathway for replacing them. However, as Americans become LESS religious, they will become shocked over Biblical concepts that WERE well-known.
We talked today about President Trump's support for Biblical Literacy classes in public schools. Doesn't this make his case?
By the way, Sarah Sanders had other topics on her mind: she added that Trump has done a great job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about. Sanders then blamed Democratic House leadership for not condemning two new lawmakers accused of holding anti-Semitic beliefs. She also questioned whether Democrats can legitimately lecture people about what's moral and what isn't.
THAT didn't get as much attention.
