“That is the suggestion of James C. Dobson, one of America’s leading evangelicals, who said Mr. Trump had recently come ‘to accept a relationship with Christ” and was now “a baby Christian.’”
Dobson, gave his account at a meeting Trump had in New York on last Tuesday with hundreds of Christian conservatives.
Dobson said he knew the person who had “led Mr. Trump to Christ…” though he did not name him.
“I don’t know when it was, but it has not been long,” Dr. Dobson said. “I believe he really made a commitment, but he’s a baby Christian.”
(Hope Hicks, the Trump campaign spokeswoman, “did not respond” Saturday to a request for details by the Times.)
During the New York meeting, Trump made “no mention of being born again.” As the Times notes:
“It is a possibility certain to cause chortles in some corners, but it could also open doors in others for the thrice-married presumptive Republican nominee for president.”
Now Trump is born again, a blood-bought, saved, lamb following the Good S, he can build on the fact he won a majority of evangelical voters already in the Republican primaries when he was still lost.
Now he’s saved he’s going to build on Jesus’ precious blood along with his prominent brothers in Christ like Dobson and Senator Ted Cruz who Dobson had endorsed before Trump got saved.
Ralph Reed can now work with Dobson to get his fellow believer elected thus BOTH keeping Mexicans out AND bringing America back to God!
Ralph Reed has his work cut out for him. Dobson said Christians should take it easy on Trump for what some might perceive as slip-ups. “You got to cut him some slack,” Dobson said. “He didn’t grow up like we did… I think there’s hope for him,” Dobson said. “And I think there’s hope for us.”
With Dobson, Reed and Trump all rooting for Jesus (and making America Great Again) what could possibly go wrong?
