Reading List Ideas: The Faith of Donald J Trump

Every now and then, The Sofa finds a book that people may find interesting to read*.

One such book, is one that looks at the faith of The American President, The Faith of Donald J. Trump: A Spiritual Biography.

According to Amazon…

The Chief Political Correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network and the “Jesus in the Public Square” columnist for the Washington Times explore the rarely discussed, but deeply important, religious beliefs and worldview of Donald J. Trump and his advisors.

Donald J. Trump was raised as a Presbyterian and has praised both Christianity and the primacy of the Bible. In the Oval Office, he has surrounded himself with close advisors who share his deep faith. In this deeply reported book, David Brody and Scott Lamb draw on unparalleled access to the White House to explain President Trump’s connection to the Christian faith, the evangelical right, the prosperity gospel, and the pressing moral and ethical issues of our day.

Hope someone out there enjoys reading… If someone could give me the cut down version of this, that would be great…

“Donald Trump Will Be The Next President of The United States Again”

According to Frank Amedia, appearing on Jim Bakkers show in America. God has given him permission to say that “Donald Trump Will Be The Next President of The United States Again”.

Does this suggest that the fight for the next US election has already began? If so, is the tactic to say something along the lines of “God wants Trump to be president”, enough times that people accept it as truth?

Donald Trump. What He’s Said About Christmas, And The Results…

May I present, some quotes from Donald Trump about Christmas:

“They don’t use the word ‘Christmas’ because it’s not politically correct, We’re saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.”

and…

“Our religious liberty is enshrined in the very first amendment in the Bill of Rights. The American founders invoked our creator four times in the Declaration of Independence. Benjamin Franklin reminded his colleagues at the Constitutional Convention to begin by bowing their heads in prayer. I remind you that we’re going to start saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.”

also…

“So when I started 18 months ago, I told my first crowd in Wisconsin that we are going to come back here someday and we are going to say ‘Merry Christmas’ again,” he said. “Merry Christmas. So, merry Christmas, everyone. Happy New Year, but merry Christmas.”

and finishing on…

“You go to stores, you don’t see the word Christmas,” Trump said last year. “It says ‘happy holidays’ all over. I say, ‘Where’s Christmas?’ I tell my wife, ‘Don’t go to those stores.’ .?.?. I want to see Christmas.”

With the above comments in mind, here’s some Christmas news from Nazareth. Where Jesus grew up. According to Mashable:

The mayor of Nazareth is canceling Christmas, and he’s blaming Donald Trump.

Ali Salam, who is Muslim in the Muslim-majority city, shut down all Christmas festivities in the city in protest of Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.

“Our identity and faith aren’t up for debate,” Salam said, according to the Times of Israel. “The decision (by Trump) has taken away the joy of the holiday, and we will thus cancel the festivities this year.”

The city council was the bearer of the bad news Thursday after the mayor made the economically risky decision. Religious tourists flock to the city where Jesus grew up, especially for the Christmas holiday.

While I wouldn’t suggest there is a definite direct line of cause and effect between  Donald Trumps foreign policy, and the above news from Nazareth (with no other factors involved); I do find it interesting that the man who has seemed to concentrate so much on Christmas, has been quoted as a reason for Christmas being cancelled.

I guess Trump isn’t that great making sure that Christmas is all around.

Donald Trump – Saying Merry Christmas… Again?

Donald-Trump-We're going to start saying Merry Christmas again.

A couple of days ago, Donald Trump updated his Twitter account with the following

The sight of Donald Trump wishing people Merry Christmas, can be argued to be a throwback to his campaign trail, where he talked about making it OK for people to say “Merry Christmas again”.

Almost like no one in The White House has ever said “Merry Christmas” before…

 

Question.
At what point did America stop saying Merry Christmas, and what did America say before Donald Trump became in charge?

Update…

It seems that Donald Trump is “bringing Christmas back.”

Questions…

Where did Christmas go, and how did Donald Trump know where to look for it?

Trump or Jesus? How Donald Trump is being ”guided by the Holy Spirit — and standing up for righteousness”

Another piece of evidence in collection, that is the debate of how Jesus and Donald Trump relate to each other…

(I would give a warning about the subject, and some of the language, but they do only quote the President of America)

Trump or Jesus? The Sequel

August last year, I published a little post called Trump or Jesus? Which basically challenged people to try and tell the different between Donald Trump, and Jesus Christ.

With that in mind, I present the below…

Yes. He does say, “If Jesus Christ gets down of the cross and told me Trump was with Russia, I would tell him, hold on a second I need to check with the President if its true”.

At one point are we allowed to use words like “Cult of Trump”?

God and Donald Trump

There is a new book, called “God and Donald Trump”, which explores Donald Trumps faith in God, and asks if his victory in the American elections was part of Gods plan?

Here is the trailer for the book which tells more about it…

The thing is, I kinda fancy giving it a read. I wonder what sort of conclusions “God and Donald Trump” will make..?
