Here are a couple of videos and a story. Dr. Robert Jeffress is Senior Pastor of the 13,000-member First Baptist Church, Dallas, Texas and a Fox News Contributor. He is an unabashed fan of President Donald Trump. So he and his team organized a celebration in Washington DC this year.
Is it wise for a pastor to so devotedly support a politician? I suspect Jeffress would point to the alternative and ask a question. Is it wiser to do nothing? I suspect he would also point to the fact that he has put his faith God, not President Donald Trump. He sees Trump’s victory as God’s blessing, not a blessing from Trump.
Anyway, I prefer to have people judge for themselves. If you want a copy of a video of the event, PATHWAY TO VICTORY. Jeffress’ team will happily give you a free DVD of the event.
If you want to listen online first, here is a video (below) from Golden State Times. Not sure what to make of the Golden State Times, but they are fans of Trump. However, the video is about twice as long as it needs to be. The event starts at about 1 hour 48 min into the video. The stuff in front looks interesting, but I have not viewed it.
Just want to listen to Trump’s speech? Don’t appreciate great music? Well, here is Trump’s speech with Jeffress’ introduction.
Finally, I would like to introduce you a story from a time when Americans did not take offense when someone asked them to pray. Why this story? Trump mentioned it in his speech. Here is the story as told by the chaplain General George S. Patton asked to write a prayer so the soldiers in the Third Army could find the words to pray for divine intervention.
