Evangelist Alveda King submits the following and is available for comment:
Talk about a long hot summer… Since my recent visit to the White House on August 1, 2018, the heat has been turned up. Being a part of the group present for an update on President Trump’s prison reform and urban initiative agenda has caused a firestorm in many circles, to say the least. At the meeting, his support for people of faith was emphasized, reminding us of his quoted position on faith:
“We will be one people, under one God, saluting one American flag.”
“We will say Merry Christmas again!”
“Our republic was formed on the basis that freedom is not a gift from government. Freedom is a gift from God.”
“Faith is more powerful than government, and nothing is more powerful than God.”
“Across our land, we see the splendor of God’s creation. Throughout our history, we see the story of God’s providence. And in every city and town, we see the Lord’s grace all around us, through a million acts of kindness, courage and generosity. We love God.”
Also, here are some of candidate Donald J. Trump’s campaign promises in 2016. (Note that President Trump has fulfilled most of them.):
* Defend Religious Liberty.
* Represent the unborn.
* Defund Planned Parenthood.
* Appoint conservative jurists to the Supreme Court and federal appeals courts.
* Reinstate the Mexico City Policy (block U.S. federal funds for abortion).
* Rescind the Johnson Amendment.
* Sign the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (2018).
* Move the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.
David Lane writes for American Renewal Project about “Rahab, Dagon and Donald Trump”:
“Having had a year and a half to take his measure, President Trump turns out to be a Samson, willing to do what God’s people have not done. Even Samson’s “parents did not know that this was from the LORD,” on the occasion when Samson was confronting the Philistines.(3)
“Minority unemployment is at a historical low, the economy is soaring, and ISIS is defeated. There are tax cuts for all. Given all this, one particular question still requires an answer from both Democrats and moderate Republicans: “Is the take down of Trump 45 more important than the success of America?”
Success or failure? Which one will we choose? While I’ve often said that I don’t care what people say or think about me, that’s not entirely true. If your hatred for me prevents your being able to receive truth and light, I do care.
“Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?” Galatians 4:16
It’s been a week since the meeting at the White House. I’ve been quiet on the networks since then; licking a few wounds I must admit. People have been very supportive or very hateful to those of us who attended the meeting with POTUS. I’m back now, asking for your prayers, and praying for you. God bless you.
