    Thank goodness!

    No one wants to hear him give yet another boring speech where he rehashes the same tired old lines from three years ago.

    Looking at the field so far?

    There won't be anybody worth him debating anyway.

    We know he won't follow through with his threat. He's just blowing hot air and showing off.

    And he spares us having to hear him talk about the size of his package or Megan Kelly's period.

    Wow and the Bible says we must pray for our leaders. This is a sad thing when christians mock instead of pray.

    Yes, his words are unpresidented. He's a real smocking gun once he gets started.

    He doesn't have the best words for a 72 year old man with the speech level of a fourth-grader.

    I pray that people one day wake up and realize what a joke we've elected to lead our country.

    Again mocking. Well we are all held accountable in the end. The one question will be did we love. Just saying.

    I wonder how Obama got exempted from that.

    We should indeed pray for God to send a spirit of wisdom upon him.

    I think the damage has already been done to the reputation of the Republican Party and to the personal witness of the Christians who continue to support and defend him after all this time.

    Is it okay with you when the President mocks others? Like a physically disabled man or a candidate's wife? Or his primary opponent? Or his former mistress? Or a former contestant on his beauty pageant? Or his former Attorney General? Or a war veteran or gold star recipient? Or an NFL player?

    I could keep going...

    " I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior…” -1 Timothy 2:1-3

    We live in an age of political spite. Even seemingly devout Christians have decided it’s okay to bash our nation’s leaders with reckless abandon. “I know I’m supposed to love our president, but…” or “I can’t wait to get those politicians (choose your party) out of office in the next election!” Yet these attitudes are directly opposed to God’s plan regarding our Christian view of our nation’s leaders.

    First and foremost, the apostle Paul in 1 Timothy 2 commands us to pray for our governing leaders. In fact, just about every possible word for pray was used to communicate this truth. Further, we are not to pray for their demise. We are told that we pray in order that “we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” What does this mean? We pray for our leaders so we will will live in stable society that allows us to focus on worshiping God.



    Yes, we are also called in other places to pray for the salvation of others and for the wisdom of our leaders. These areas are also important. The key is to pray, not attack our nation’s leaders, whether verbally or otherwise. And lest we forget, Paul wrote these words under the reign of King Nero, a fellow historically much more difficult to live under than any president in America’s history.


    When it comes to our governing leaders, God’s Word speaks clearly on where we are to begin–in prayer.

    We are not responsible for Him we are responsible for ourselves.

    I'd like to know if you preached this when you heard Republicans mocking former President Obama.

    A lot of the people condemning mockery of Trump mercilessly mocked Obama. Put your money where your mouth is.
