Reasons Christians Give For Saying Trump is the One
Charisma Magazine Rev. Rick Joyner whose ministry I partner with, recorded the reasons Christians give him for their supporting Trump. He can include me on all of them.
FACTOR #1: Many no longer trust politicians who claim to be Christians and/or conservatives. These seem to inevitably change when they get to Washington and fail to keep their promises.
FACTOR #2: There has been such a vacuum of courage in leadership that it is now esteemed above other virtues.
FACTOR #3: Fewer Christians are choosing a candidate based on the candidate’s faith. Rather they decide based on who they think will do the best job confronting the important issues of the time.
FACTOR #4: The two main issues in this election are security and the economy. Trump is seen as the strongest in both issues.
FACTOR #5: Trump’s lack of political correctness (PC) and willingness to say what he thinks has many believing he will resist political pressure and do what is right for the country, instead of for special interests.
FACTOR #6: Christians are increasingly disgusted with the Republican establishment and Trump is seen as the "wrecking ball" needed to pry the government out of the hands of the political elite.
FACTOR #7: They think that they have heard from God about Trump.
