To Woo Evangelicals, Trump Waves His Bible
On Friday, Republican front-runner Donald Trump tried to woo evangelical voters at the Values Voter Summit, the annual gathering of social conservative voters hosted by the Family Research Council where Rick Santorum-style social conservatives are more common than New York City real estate moguls. But Trump is trying to preserve his top-of-the-polls standing, and that requires maintaining strong support among evangelicals. "Most importantly," he said, holding up his copy of the holy book, "I brought my Bible."

Trump made sure to cover issues important to many conservative evangelical voters. Religious freedom is one of their key talking points these days, and Trump observed, "freedom of religion, so important." He emphasized his love of Christmas. "I love Christmas. I love Christmas," he declared as the audience applauded, assuring them that he would bring back the phrase "Merry Christmas" if ...

Inquiring minds,don't ask pennned. It's doubtful that there would be an accurate answer to the question.
Pennned accuses me of being a false brethren. Not only is this person with this "name" guilty of slander but,seemingly,is above reproach for it as well. If you're not whiny,ecumenical, or "intellectually vague" in your posts,you may be deemed a false brethren as well.

leftist dreams of a government free of Christian influence

2. Politicians serve themselves, now of course you get a good Free Mason like George Washington

1. No government is purely secular. Seeing that God's laws are encased in man's conscience, we can assume that any decent form of Gov. may approximate His value system for the good of them governed

Concerning your link provided:
Fairness demands a differentiation between the pragmatism of the 'political' Puritan of Mass C Bay flawed judgments, and the earnest piety of the 'theological' Puritan ethos. Capitalizing on the flaws of the first, the stand for godliness the classic Puritan upheld is pitifully marred.

2. Masons not always provide a valid alternative to Gov. as their inclusive set of values accommodating any creed might jeopardize law making on the altar of specific agendas

He runs casinos for crying out loud! Has anybody figured that out yet? These are where people's lives are ruined! What place has he at the evangelical table? But then again , I'm forgetting that this is an evangelicalism that even has a place for the Pope.

Apparently,Wayfarer decided against the "final thoughts" in a previous post by adding more.
Until America quits murdering babies,any hope of any kind of awakening is "for naught". Judgment is here.

Yes church attendance was low in colonial America until.. The first and second awakening. But then even when people responded to the gospel, naysayers ( high church dead men) said it was for naught. The gospel is not calculated it is separate from our plans.

Jess, all the candidates need your prayer!

Thankfully, Americans have been very wary of--

2 Corinthians 2
17 For we are not like many, peddling the word of God, but as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ in the sight of God.---[URL=]]]NASB[/URL]

So, perhaps The Donald won't start thumping the Bible regularily because every time a bunch of ignoramuses try to turn America into a Christian state they get slapped down! [URL=]]] Puritans' "Christian" Agenda?)[/URL]

Marshalling an impressive array of census statistics, they [the authors] argue that, contrary to popular misconception, religiosity was fairly weak in Colonial America. About 17% of the colonists belonged to churches. If this proposition is true, then the oft-repeated claim that our forefathers were religious believers, is simply untrue. Moreover, the claim that moral purity accompanied religious piety at the founding of this nation is a myth.

Trump's a regular Joel Osteen. "This is my bible....."

Last thoughts, Trump does not identify with anyone going to his worship rally's. He has know desire to know or understand anyone who marks in of wears out their own bible. If he get elected it probably be the second and last time he's seen with a bible.

"I brought my Bible... but I've never even asked for forgiveness for anything! Merry Christmas!"

I'll continue to pray for him.

Right on, Mike. Crazy to see the masses fall for such nonscense over, and over, and over (and over). "Elect me President and I promise to say Merry Christmas."
"See, I have a bible, now vote for me." (Crowd cheers)
"Don't vote for Hillary because she's ugly."

Anyway, while I appreciate him not falling in line with the status quo on political correctness, I can't believe that so many are considering him simply because he says what's on his mind. He spouts a lot of generalities to get the crowds fired up, but is silent on any details and fumbles when asked.

I forgot to mention: check the source of this news article: Mother Jones, a very liberal publication.
I haven't seen it on any other source, but then that brings up the nearly non-stop coverage of the Pope's visit that the news media has been giving us.

The article reads that "... He emphasized his love of Christmas. "I love Christmas. I love Christmas," he declared as the audience applauded, assuring them that he would bring back the phrase "Merry Christmas" if ..."
Little does he know that those words speak volumes as to his spiritual state.
This RC "holiday" isn't even in the Bible though many Christians/professing Christians will probably support Trump now because of his resolve to hold to a vain tradition/expression.Sadly,he probably meant it.
Instead of waving his bible around maybe it would help if he would open it and read it. The word of God never goes out void and it is by hearing it through which faith comes.
