PUTIN PROUD CHRISTIAN
First of all, I am not campaigning for President Putin. I don’t pretend to understand him; it would be presumptuous to do so. But his Christian footprints are recognizable at this point.
So… can we trust Donald Trump’s claim to be a Christian? Or can we trust president Obama’s (lower case intentional) claims to be a Christian?
We are commanded to pray for all people in positions of leadership that the Lord would direct their thoughts and actions toward His purposes. All people. So I can’t discriminate here.
I will say this. When I pray for Obama, I have to fight my anger at his behavior. When I pray for Trump, I have to wonder if he is just another deceiver, like Obama. But when I pray for Mr. Putin, I have an internal sense that he has some part of his heart that is reserved for the Lord.
And I would bet Mr. Putin can recall a favorite scripture more quickly than Mr. Trump.
Here’s one thought. There is talk in the looney-sphere that Mr. Putin is throwing a wrench into the plans of the “New World Order.” Sounds good to me.
