The anti-Trump opinions are factually incorrect. For example he doesn't attack someone just because they criticize him. The claim that he lies continually is also erroneous. The claim that he lies a lot are largely the result of the media subjecting each and every statement he makes to an absurd level of scrutiny no other President has been subjected to. For example, he declared this past year that we have "the best economy ever", obviously an off-hand remark that was just meant to convey that we had a really good economy (although we recently had the lowest unemployment rate in 49 years). His critics went ballistic, like he had said an attack on a US Consulate in Libya was the result of a video nobody ever heard of, rather than a terrorist attack which it was. Also, many of the claims that something he said was a lie are themselves questionable or are outright lies. Someone actually says that the media are against him because he's bad. Try reading this article to understand how they create a totally distorted picture of Pres. Trump. "Also yesterday, media in the US and around the world ran a story saying the entire top team at the State Department had walked out rather than serve under President Trump. It was further suggested that the loss of the priceless, longstanding and unique knowledge and expertise of these four individuals would plunge American foreign policy into utter chaos. The implication was that the reason for this unprecedented disaster was the unconscionable nature of the new man in the White House". "But the truth was that these four people, who were Obama political appointees, had been sacked by the incoming administration. As is quite normal for a new administration to do with political appointees". http://www.melaniephillips.com/media-war-donald-trump/

Like each of us, President Trump is a work in progress. Let us pray for wisdom, and for safety.

Praying for the POTUS is soundly Biblical. I can't remember such earnest plea going up for President Barack Obama though - and he definitely needed prayers (not saying that I believed in him) with all the vitriol of racism that was hurled at him. The absence of such earnestness tends to water down the appeal, though it comes from one who I've long respected.

I totally agree with Dr Brown. Let's pray for our Presidents and make sure that we vote for Conservatives Christian Presidents that helps make America Christian again with values of love for God and our neighbors and support Israel. Lev 18:24

We certainly must pray for President Trump- not for the accomplishment of his "divine mission" to succeed with his policies, but for his deliverance from service to Mammon/Wealth/Profit, which he has served all his life and has continued to serve with his actions as President (in violation of Mat 6:24; 1 Tim 6:10) ; for his continued lies and unsubstantiated attacks on anyone who criticizes him. It is materialism and greed, which Pres. Trump serves, that is the base (and greatest) threat to our nation, and not liberals and liberal policies.

This is a disappointing article and the reason why people blaspheme the name of God. Trump, both in his personal life and policies, stands against God's Word. Where is your Bible? As a Christian, you are called to test everything to see if it is in the LORD. Trump is a liar and nothing that he stands for is remotely close to the Word of God. No wonder why people hate Christians. They have become just as mindless as the world. Trump's "divine purpose" may have been to expose the weak and the fake Christians? He is no Cyrus. He is an Ahab at best! The media and the left, for all their flaws, hate Trump because he is a really bad hombre who says and does things that are non- Christians. And I also get why they hate Christians as well. Most of us Christians are hypocrites. Sad!

This is where I must disagree with you, Dr. Brown. First of all, him taking on the media and how he treats anyone he views as an opponent is just terrible and unbecoming of any man authority, let alone a Christian leader. (Which I know he is not) There is a reason for the mass exodus of those who work in his administration with General Mattis being the latest casualty. Secondly, you say he has a "forehead of steel", yet I see a man who has the thinnest skin of any person I've ever known of. You say Trump is a "fighter" but, I see a thin skinned man who can't take any criticism whatsoever. I do agree that we need to pray for him. I agree he is flawed, but I fear it runs so much more deeper than just being "flawed". I am thankful for much of his policy and especially the Supreme Court being transformed under his watch. I will sorely miss Nikki Haley and hope she runs for president. I'm not saying she should primary Trump, but I would take her over Trump everyday without hesitation. Yes, let us pray for our President. God is not impotent, He can transform Trump, but Trump needs to humble himself and seek the Lord.
