Not Voting or Writing in a Name is NOT A Responsible Option - Report from June 21, New York Meeting - Evangelicals and Mr Trump
8-4-16, Dana, WAKE UP AMERICA, Facebook -- The following was written by an attendee of the meeting of 1000 Christian leaders with Trump. [excerpted]
"Faithful Christians are having a very difficult time with the direction our country is headed. This November, NOT voting is NOT an option. Here's why:
On June 21, 2016 over 1000 Christian leaders from all over the U.S. gathered at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square to ask Donald Trump tough specific questions about his policy and intentions should he be elected POTUS.
After opening remarks by the conference organizers and an opening prayer by James Robison, Jerry Falwell Jr. spoke, followed by Franklin Graham. Both attested to the authenticity and trustworthiness of Donald Trump. George Barna, the polling guy, spoke. Using several charts he showed that Trump has a genuine path to victory if Christians vote. But in the last presidential election, some 40 million evangelicals stayed home [not voting for Romney] and that was literally the difference in the election.
Then Ben Carson spoke and easily warmed the crowd. He referred to the fact that Trump just had a bad three weeks, while Clinton had a good three weeks, and yet the race is still close, virtually tied. But Carson 's main point was that Trump is a proven leader. And that he's certainly not a politician who is always worried about offending someone. And that's what we need, a leader, not a politician; they are what got us in this mess to begin with!
Mike Huckabee, who moderated the discussion between the attendees and Trump made the point that we're not voting on a pastor, but rather a leader. A leader who is quite different from the past to change things from the status quo.
For about 90 minutes [only 20 minutes was scheduled] Trump took questions from the crowd. There was no press allowed inside, so it was just Trump and the Christian leaders talking back and forth. The really big Christian leader names were pre-selected to directly ask Trump questions from the floor, i.e. people like James Dobson, Ralph Reed, David Jeremiah, Tony Perkins, Robert Jeffress, etc. Most feel religious liberty is at stake with this election saying that if the policies Obama has set in place were allowed to continue, Christians would eventually have no liberty. Harassment of Christian organizations would continue. Trump answered each of our questions with solid answers, both acknowledging the problem cited and how he would take care of the problem.
At the end of the day it was time for prayer. With few exceptions, the entire room knelt on the floor in corporate prayer for our nation. We must pray for Mr Trump and our nation; he is so upsetting the "establishment" that it's not a stretch to think his life's in danger. He will attempt to change the direction of this nation. Clinton won't. With Trump we have a chance. With Clinton we have no chance.
A new advisory board of 25-members was announced during the meeting. This board is expected to “provide advisory support to Trump on issues important to Christianity and other people of faith in America,” according to a statement from the Trump campaign. Its 25 members were “not asked to endorse Mr. Trump as a prerequisite for participating on the board.” -- Doug Batchelor
Our hope is in Christ, and our prayer is for one last chance (think Nineveh) so when the Lord takes out the Church at the Rapture, He will take us out in a revival, instead of bailing us out of a spiritual disaster. We want to finish well!"

✝️ 4-28-20, The Lord □ Jesus, in the book of Matthew, lists what’s called the “Beatitudes.” He lists the items in our lives in His 'Sermon on the Mount' that examine our values, vision & habits to wholehearted obedience to God.
