Jesus said plainly that His kingdom is not of this world and, unlike the followers of worldly political leaders, His followers do not use force to establish the kingdom (John 18:36)....

I don't know if anyone has measured how effective Trump's actions on limiting abortions are. However, one thing is very measurable and that is the economy
Zoe Daniel and Emily Olson wrote: "It's the economy, stupid."
US President Donald Trump's volatile leadership can be mystifying, but for those who support him, much of his appeal rests on his business boss persona.
When they voted for him, they were looking for a chief executive who would deliver prosperity, especially to inland America.
His record is imperfect in that election promises made to towns reliant on manufacturing haven't necessarily come to pass. But overall, unemployment is close to a 50-year low and the economy has grown strongly over the last five years....

So if one supports Trump for his stance on abortion or for his support for Israel, it will be the economy that determines if he is

John Piper wrote: .... So I want to say that there may be a time when you're calling God's judgment on somebody.
But here's where I'm probably going to end up: Jesus said, "Love your enemies, pray for those who persecute you. Bless those who abuse you." So I don't think that today, without being scripture-writers like the psalmist, we should pray for people's damnation. We should bless people, pray for their conversion, or not pray for them if God makes it clear they're not going to be saved.
