I am a non believer but found this very uplifting. I do enjoy being around spiritual people so I go to different churches several times a year to get a sense of community, singing and the hugging of neighbors and acquaintances.

No other place can you get this, at least for me.

According to Trump's spiritual advisor, Paula White, he's a saved Christian.

According to Trump, he's never asked God for forgiveness, or at least he doesn't remember doing so. Listen:

A saved Christian who's never asked for forgiveness.....

trump is acting like another hitler
make a wall on the mexico border then send all Mexicans back to mexico
that are waiting to be americaan.
but what about Mexicans who come to the usa and have kids with a American
woman. are those kids born American. I don't remember all of this.
do the kids stay. does the father go. is there a time limit where something
protects the father from being sent back. my niece married him
he was born in mexico
and have kids.

Trump is like that Pharisee in the parable, who dresses in his finest robes, prays out loud for all to hear, makes a vulgar show of his charity - and doesn't mean a word of it.
