President Trump is loved by some and hated by some. That’s just a fact. I use to be incredibly vehement about politics and everything that went with it. I probably, at one time, could easily have been called an activist. Truth is, I put a great deal of time and effort into the topic. And Lord knows I vented on social media, I shared posts and videos and blogs and everything I could.
And for a minute, I thought it actually made a difference.
The truth is, it doesn’t. You can talk (or yell, scream, cuss and rant) until you’re blue in the face. I’ve never seen any of that actually change anyone’s mind. People believe what they want to believe. They will back up those beliefs with others who believe the same thing they do, whether on the left or right. They will back up their thoughts with whatever they think with further their own agenda, for or against some precious point.
I gave it all up once God revealed a few things to me, but that’s not what this particular post is about.
It All Makes Sense Now
We could talk for days about why people hate Trump so much. But I think it all boils down to the fact that he touts Christianity above all else. He stands up for faith, where faith hasn’t been stood for in a long, long time.
No, I don’t know about his own walk, and I don’t know much about his wife either. What I DO know, however, is that people can change. It’s not my place to try to figure that out for any living soul, and a tree will be known by its fruit.
Then again, there are some people who are just offensive because their spirit aggravates the demons of another.
In this day and age, NO ONE is accepted by the general populous if they are Christians or praise Christianity. Furthermore, from what I understand of the Bible, that doesn’t look to be getting any better either.

So true, so true. Very good insights, I think.
Stacey, I like the fact that you said a tree will be known by it’s fruit. This is so true. “but the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV). I’m also in agreement with you about the whole political thing. I use to concern myself with all the political hoopla as well, until God put it on my heart that I am a child of the Almighty. My King sits at the right hand of God! That is the kingdom that we belong too…Hallelujah, praise God!!! And when that truth sank in, I realized that being concerned about worldly rulers is for worldly folks. However, I do believe that all of our leadership needs prayer. They have incredibly weighty positions that affect millions of people. Therefore, I believe that the church is responsible for praying for these individuals to help guide them in their leadership. Thought-provoking post…thank you for sharing your insights!
Oh Claudea, I’m so glad you commented these things! Such grace and Truth, I absolutely love it…”My King sits at the right hand of God!”… “…being concerned about worldly rulers is for worldly folks”… Amen. These statements will resonate with me all day <3 Yes, we are told to pray for those in authority and for those who sit in high places. There's no doubt that while IN the world, we sit under their doctrines and will be affected by SOME of the things that they do. And I know you're like me...we believe that prayer really does change things! Praise the Name of the Lord!
Around here, across the Atlantic, Trump has many haters. A common aspect is that these haters generally are people who are secular and not in any relationship with God. Above all, neo-Marxist (atheist) and also liberal. I can’t judge and am neither for or against, but suffice to say that he was mentioned by a very accurate prophet about a hundred years ago. maybe God can use whoever He chooses to.
Oh, he has no lack of haters here as well. Really though, I suppose no president is lacking in the area so far! I’ve seen Scripture used to say, “God sets up and brings down kings”… and that “Man suffers when he chooses the wrong leader”. I know, in my heart, that God is in complete control. He can even use people who don’t our criteria for what we think is “perfect” and he can allow those we think ARE perfect to fall under their own plans. It’s all in His capable Hands, I am quite sure. It all boils down to, we as a people need to come to a place of heart-felt repentance and allow God to restore us.
