Dr. Michael Brown recently wrote a book, Donald Trump is Not My Savior, and he has an honest conversation with Christians and how they can relate to President Trump. James Robison, the founder of The Stream, speaks with Dr. Brown about the book and it is a great interview to hear why he wrote this book. Many Christians have been worried that President Trump may not be saved and that they shouldn’t support him, but Pastor John Kilpatrick said it perfectly. “President Trump might not be a man of God, but without a doubt, he is God’s Man.”
James starts the interview introducing the book. He shares how the name of the book, Donald Trump is Not My Savior, is not a sarcastic comment, it is the truth. “There is no president, no king, no leader who will ever be our savior. Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is our Savior. He is the greatest example the world will ever see, and everything that flowed from His mouth was wisdom.” He shares how Dr. Brown is making a point with the book and is not taking a shot at President Trump.
James shares how Dr. Ben Carson suggested to President Trump to be open to speaking to James, and he has been open to hearing the truth from him! He shares how he has spent much time with President Trump speaking into his life and being honest with him. James asks Dr. Brown a question, “You began writing cautions and concerns and calls for prayer. Now, do you see at this point because if you go through this (the book) it almost looks like you went from being one who might have been evaluating from a critical point of view to evaluating from a positive? What’s going on? Are you seeing what looks to you like in some ways a miracle and maybe even a miracle and answer to prayer?”
Dr. Brown answers, “There is no question that the people surrounding Donald Trump and the people praying for him have made a difference. That’s why the subtitle of the book is, An Evangelical Leader Speaks His Mind About the Man He Supports as President…I feel like we get boxed in. Either we make him our savior, and everything is perfect, or we have to completely renounce him, we have nothing to do with him…why can’t we say what Melania did? That’s his wife, that’s the closest person to him in the world. She says I don’t like all of his tweets. Why can’t we say, I wish he didn’t call that former employee a dog, but you better believe I support him, and he is doing a great job here…there is a lot of positive stuff. Who else has met with the leader of North Korea and who else has gotten Europe to make certain changes who else has actually not just talked about moving the Embassy to Jerusalem but moved it.”
Dr. Brown shares how he is a Messianic Jew, and he was visiting Israel this year, and he was being yelled at to stop preaching in the streets. He wanted to take the opportunity to speak about Jesus, and he asked those standing around him, didn’t he have the right to say what he wanted to say? So, one man asked him if he liked Trump and then he said he voted for him, so the man said you are good and told the people gathered to listen to him. “What’s interesting as much as we wish this could be more Christian; let’s see evidence of God working in his life. You are looking at a ripple effect around the world, that’s massive, and that’s incredible. So, God is definitely at work…so I reduced it to something really simple. Donald Trump didn’t die for my sins Jesus did. Jesus gets my life, my loyalty, my testimony is tied in with Him. President Trump is my president, he gets my vote, and I’m not going to let the world force it to be either or. And we need to tell others, my testimony is tied in with Jesus and my reputation is tied in with Jesus.”
We are all imperfect, and it is very important that we pray for the coming elections and that we get out and vote! You can find out what values the candidates that are running stand for here and you can be a value-based voter! We want to hear from you and what you think about this conversation.
