Pastor Paula White, Trump’s spiritual advisor, claims Christians will take over the U.S., and that any opposition to Trump is opposition to God.
White, one of President Trump’s key spiritual advisors, recently appeared on pastor Jim Bakker’s television program, where she declared that Christians will take over the U.S., and that any opposition to Trump is opposition to God.
… whether people like him or not, he’s been raised up by God because God says that He raises up and places all people in places of authority. It is God that raises up a king, it is God that sets one down and so when you fight against the plan of God, you’re fighting against the hand of God.
White continued her pro-Trump diatribe, with much encouragement from the collection of evangelist surrounding her. At one point White declared that Christians “were sent here to take over.”
After White said Christians “were sent here to take over,” Baker was ecstatic, and went into a long rant praising White and President Trump, at one point declaring:
God is shaking America, people. He gave us a president who says we’re not going to murder babies. You can’t be blessed and murder 50 million babies! You can’t! You can’t! You can’t! You can’t!
Pastor White, of the New Destiny Christian Center in Florida, was one of Trump’s key advisers during the 2016 campaign and continues in that role today.
At one point during the campaign, in a bizarre bit of religious nonsense, White can be seen gathered around Trump with other leading televangelists as they lay their hands on the presidential candidate in prayer.
The meeting lasted roughly two and a half hours and ended with pastors gathering around Trump and laying their hands on him in prayer. Kenneth Copeland, Paula White, and Rabbi Schneider prayed during that time, asking the Lord to give the GOP presidential frontrunner wisdom, stability and knowledge necessary to pursue this endeavor. They also prayed for America and for God’s will to be done.
On the campaign trail Trump promised that Christians would receive special treatment and consideration if he were to be elected president, and he has often indicated that he would move the nation closer to a Christian theocracy if given the chance.
