As one who has held church office, not political office, some of us represent our constituents and support what they request because our job is to do just that.

Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they are not after you.

This thread is for your predictions - what do you think Donald Trump will do, and how will it affect the United States? What are your hopes, your fears, or things you want to keep an eye on to see what he does? No debate, please, and please do not quote what anyone else says. Just make your own predictions. No more than one post per person per day.

If Robert has good backups, we will revisit this in four years.


My other post was short so I'll use my tomorrow's post :) to respond to the question above regarding my 'fears' -

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.


Philippians 4:6-7 NLT

"I am leaving you with a gift--peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don't be troubled or afraid.


John 14:27 NLT

As it becomes more apparent what a vile, vulgar, and incredibly narcissistic person Donald Trump is on a personal level, the conservative Christians who hailed him as their messiah and held him up before the entire world as a person who represents their beliefs will sink with him.

In the future, conservative Christian politicians will have to downplay their Christianity to have much of a chance at credibility in the public eye. All of which, IMO, could be positives for "kingdom Christianity".


Agreed.

Whatever "high ground" politically involved conservative Christians who support Trump once had (I remember their moral outrage at the vile behavior of the philandering Democrat Bill Clinton) has been cashed in. No matter how they argue for their cause in the future, because of their alignment with Trump, they have given up their right to credibly critique their political opponents on things like "family values" and "personal integrity." I agree with Perigrino - perhaps as their man eventually flames out in disgrace, some Christians on the right will come to see that the idea of a morally superior political party is a sham (a lesson partisans on the Christian left have had ample opportunity to learn by now as well).

Wouldn't it be wonderful if what happened to the apostle Paul happened to Donald Trump. Nothing is impossible with God if we believe. I earlier posted that Donald would always be the unpredictable Donald but that wasn't using much faith in God. Let's pray someone is able to sit with Donald and explain to him the Gospel of Jesus Christ. What a testimony that would be to see Donald transformed into a new creation in Christ Jesus. Old Donald passes away and a new Donald appears. If it happened to Paul, the chief of sinners, it can happen to Donald. Christ died for Donald as well. He needs our prayers.

Not sure who this is speaking to but my last post was giving my hopes regarding Donald that was asked for in the OP. I'm hoping Donald becomes a born again Christian and the effect this will have on the world.
