Lord, help us to vote our biblical values in this upcoming election.
Reading Time: 5 minutes

Are you still considering how to vote for President? Here is the opinion of Paula White, Senior Spiritual Advisor to the President:

Never before in the history of our nation have we been at this type of a crossroads. There are two very distinct visions for America. At the end of the day those who we elect into office will legislate what happens to our children and future generations. A very beautiful and compelling opportunity is in our hands and we get to decide what America, and specifically the church in America, will be like in the coming years and decades. Your voice and vote will make that decision in just a few days.

I have had the opportunity and privilege to know President Trump up close and personal for over 19 years, and to work with him and his family as a faith leader in their lives. I’ve seen him firsthand as a father, a husband, a leader, a businessman and now the President of the United States of America. I also recognize most people have secondhand information that mischaracterizes the man I know. . . .

Here are ten reasons you should give the president four more years.

  • He has reset our courts for a generation. The president promised to appoint originalist judges to our Supreme Court who would protect our religious freedoms and not legislate from the bench. He has now appointed more than 200 of them, including three Supreme Court justices. He has flipped three of the Circuit Courts and given us a super majority on the Supreme Court.
  • He has protected the unborn. Over sixty million children have been aborted in America yet President Trump is the first Republican president in our lifetime who hasn’t been timidly pro-life. On the contrary, President Trump has been “all in” on the pro-life agenda. He expanded the Mexico-City policy which has forbid over $9 billion dollars of tax-payer money from funding foreign abortions. He audited the entire federal government to ensure its policies promoted life, and he became the first President to ever address the March for Life. . . .
  • He has preserved religious freedom. Protecting religious freedom at home and abroad has been at the very heart of President Trump’s domestic and foreign policy. He signed executive orders mandating religious freedom training for all State Department employees and granted hundreds-of-millions of dollars to aid programs that specifically promote religious freedom, including in Iraq and in Syria. Even the historic Abraham Accords include “religious freedom.” At home, Trump mandated that all federal government departments protect conscience rights. . . .
  • He has an astonishing foreign policy record. President Trump moved our Israeli Embassy to Jerusalem, aggressively ended America’s foreign wars, and defeated ISIS while ending the reign of the arch-terrorists Soleimani and Al-Baghdadi. He negotiated the first Middle East peace agreement in thirty years, negotiated peace between Kosovo and Serbia and – just this week – announced a new agreement with Sudan bringing it into the modern world alongside its own peace with Israel. President Trump has sanctioned more human rights violators than any previous President, including more Russians, Chinese and Iranians. Biden made a deal with Iran that allowed them to engage in proxy wars across the middle east, let the pressure off of Cuba and Venezuela, and his own Defense Secretary Bob Gates wrote in his memoir that Biden had been wrong on virtually every foreign policy question for 40 years.  . . .
  • He has built our economy. President Trump’s economic policies built the largest economy in American history, including by providing record home ownership and record low unemployment for women and people of color. His tax policies doubled the child tax credit resulting in 2019 alone a savings of $88 billion dollars to 40 million families. He renegotiated flawed trade deals such as NAFTA and created the USMCA which early on generated $68 billion dollars to the US economy and 176,000 new jobs.  . . .
  • He has strengthened minority communities. Some politicians speak about helping minority communities, but it is President Trump who led the historic reform of our Criminal Justice System (through the First Act). As a result of this thousands of Americans have been released from prison and 90% of those who have had their sentences reduced are black Americans. He provided permanent funding for historically black colleges and universities. He signed legislation creating Opportunity Zones, providing investment in nearly 9,000 economically distressed communities with more than $75 billion in funds. In his next term, he promises to turn his support for school choice into law. . . .
  • He has promoted social justice. I understand the religious left talks a big game when it comes to social justice. I’ve come to realize that it’s actually the right which gets the job done and the President has done more in this area than almost any other. Earlier this year, when the black Republican from South Carolina Senator Tim Scott proposed a second Criminal Justice Reform bill, focused on law enforcement, the President promised to sign it. The only issue was that Democrats wouldn’t even let it be debated on the Senate floor, despite that the original draft included over 80% of their demands to start the negotiation. Why? Because they didn’t want it to be signed by President Trump, of course. Over the last six months alone, the President’s “Farmers-to-Families” program has kept farmers in business (buying their produce) while feeding the hungry; giving out over 102 million food boxes, many through communities of faith. President Trump addressed our opioid and drug crisis, he went after the pharmaceutical companies who helped create the crisis, while also mandating lower costs for medication. The Trump administration has made record improvements in combatting human trafficking leading the charge on nine pieces of legislation, 5,000 arrests of wicked traffickers, and budgeting hundreds of millions of dollars to end human trafficking.
  • He has kept us safe. At home and abroad, President Trump has kept us safe. He’s rebuilt our military with $2 trillion dollars, and given our troops a much needed 3.1% pay raise. He has helped our veterans get the help that was denied to them in the previous administration, and he has cherished American freedom and the life of America’s soldiers by disentangling America from foreign conflicts. At home he has strongly supported our law enforcement officers and their families.  . . .
  • He has reached across the aisle. The Democrats, who never accepted the 2016 election results chose to embrace an un-American strategy of “resistance,” but President Trump didn’t. He has significantly, regularly reached across the aisle with a problem solvers mentality. That’s why so many of the policies above aren’t traditional, Republican policies, and it’s why evangelicals have found in this President someone who promotes much more of what they support than those who came before.
  • He has never been ashamed of America. Then, of course, the president isn’t ashamed of America. As I’ve heard him say thousands of times “I’m going to fight for you!” He means that, and he means it for all Americans— even those who have opposed him every day. He believes America is still the brightest light on the global horizon and— despite our flaws— we should never reject our identity. . . .

I know this family. They are good people who’ve sacrificed much to serve our nation. They do not deserve the way they have been treated for it. Yet, elections aren’t about personalities. They are about policies and policy is character when you do what you say you will and—especially—when those policies are righteous.

Thank you Paula for your comments. I agree with you fully in your statements.
Right on. God has brought President Trump to this high office for this time
in history. He must be re-elected and I believe he will be. I am praying for
a BIG majority of the votes for the President.

It’s difficult for me to believe that there are Christians who remain confused about this issue! I have 2 Biblical issues I am asking you to consider: 1) The United States is a stronger ally to Israel than we have been for years. Gen 12:2-3, God told Abraham, “I will make you a great nation…I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. By blessing Israel the US will be blessed. We moved our embassy to Jerusalem thus recognizing the Biblical capital of Israel. 2) Deut. 18:9-11, God warns His people to not give their children to be burned as a sacrifice to Molech for it is an abominable practice. Isn’t this what happens with abortion, innocent children are offered up as a sacrifice to the god of self! (Yes, I am not naive to the many nuances of this practice!) Think about this: according to Ps 139:16, “Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Thy book they were all written, The days they were ordained for me, When yet there was not one of them.” Every aborted child has a book in heaven about the life ordained for them even while yet unformed! Which candidate supports life and which one advocates for selfish sacrifice of innocent God-ordained lives?
As for President Trump, who among you is without sin cast the first stone. Where is God’s mercy in your life, His love? Isn’t President Trump that anyone who Jesus died for? It is a fact that he now says he is a non-denominational Christian. Yes he is young in the Loerd and still learning but if you listen to him with you heart and not with emotions you can see his heart for God and this nation. Look at his fruits, not what mainstream media says but what is documented about his accomplishments. You are known by your fruits. Recently I heard someone say, “your vote is your seed.” are you sowing righteous seed for God’s kingdom, or seeds unto death? Don’t take anyone else’s word regarding your vote, do your own research and let Holy Spirit guide you in your journey.

I have never met President Trump, but I have sought to get the facts about what he has been up to through these 4 years, and what he has ACTUALLY SAID AND MEANT when the MSMedia will not report anything good that he does, nor much of anything good that he says. On the contrary, it seems their main purpose has been to wake up every day to ask “What terrible things can we report today about what Trump has said or done?” And then they all chime in, in unison on the point of the day. It’s no wonder that so many of our people see him as a monster. I have taken the time to watch full press meetings, and have enjoyed even more watching the roundtable meetings he has had at the WH with various groups paired with appropriate members of Congress and his administration- of farmers, or educators, or business people, or blacks, or Latinos, or prison reform folks, or….. He is marvelous at listening to their concerns and ideas, supporting and encouraging what they want to accomplish, and helping them get things done in the halls of government. You see a different demeanor then from when he’s in front of a pack of reporters, having to defend himself and his policies, when they seem only to want to destroy him.
I’m glad Paula White has put this out there. It’s objective truth, rather than media-shaped impressions. (And the media has been rated as 92-96% negative in its coverage of Trump. Very unfair.) I was also very glad to hear the perspective of Nigel Farage when he said a few words at the AZ rally. He stirred up the British people for Brexit, to keep them from getting taken over by the EU bureaucracy. He sees Trump as the only leader currently having the courage to stand up to what is threatening our nations and freedoms. So our election is not only for this country, but for who will be the “leader of the free world”. I hope that gets broadcast far and wide, along with the perspective of Sky News people from Australia. They all see that this election in the USA is determinative for the whole world, and that Trump is the man with the courage to stand against the onslaught of all that is against our system of freedom.
I found myself praying this morning for REVELATION to all who have been snowed by the MSM, but who in their hearts desire goodness and righteousness, and the RENEWING OF THE MIND for Christians who can’t see the big picture, or can’t see through the sham that the Dems have put before us. The Australians have called it “elder abuse” of poor old Joe.
May the Lord have mercy on us, and give understanding to all who desire the GOOD, and turn us as a nation to His path.

I am grateful that Paula White has been President Trump’s spiritual advisor and she makes excellent points. I thank God for her and her strong, unwavering biblical values. God bless you, Paula White.

We are standing together in one accord. What is impossible for man, All things are possible with our God. We pray the Whole armor of God, we build a wall of prayer around our nation, United we stand, if God is for us who can be against us. Jesus, you are the Lord of Hosts! By your power and might, for your Glory and your Namesake, you are Jesus, no other Name in heaven, here on earth and below, we shudder under the covering of God, in awe that you’re moving on your people’s behalf, because we are called by Your Name, there is no other!

I totally loved and appreciate the boldness and courage of Pastor Paula for standing and addressing what is true about President Trump’s accomplishments. It is amazing how other leaders in the religious realm, with bigger platforms and influence, don’t want to compromise and call it like it is due to skin color or the groups they’re part of, fearful of rejection and labels. Yeshua called us to stand for what is just and true. He commanded us to intercede and pray for our presidents in order to live in Shalom, pius, and with integrity. For the very first time this has happened, and the enemy using the will and authority of so many in the body of Christ, is trying to undermine and reverse the course of this blessed nation. Remnant of God, greater is He who is with us. Keep the good fight and glorify God for the victory. Amén!

    Deb, who are you to judge? There is one judge and he is God. Maybe you should check up on your love walk we are to love our neighbor as our self. I pray that you will see others through the eyes of love, Jesus.

      We are to love but also to judge evil. That is not hating the person, it is doing what Scripture tells us–to judge evil.

October 29, 2020

This is why so many people have a problem with so-called Christians! Trump is a pathological liar, he’s a con man and he’s morally bankrupt! As a Bible-believing, born-again Christian who follows Jesus, I’m appalled that anyone who claims to love the Lord can support and vote for this evil man! He’s obnoxious and arrogant and his behavior and the way he treats human beings is sickening! You can’t tell me or more importantly, show me in the bible where Jesus approves of this abhorrent behavior – it’s disgusting and doesn’t represent the love of Jesus! Additionally, he actually said that he doesn’t need to ask God for forgiveness because he hasn’t done anything to require it. Seriously? God said, “For ALL have sinned, and have come short of the glory of God.” I’m praying that the Lord brings Trump to his knees because he is incredibly lost! Jesus said, every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord!

    But God chose what the world considers nonsense in order to shame the wise; God chose what the world considers weak in order to shame the strong;and God chose what the world looks down on as common or regards as nothing in order to bring to nothing what the world considers important;so that no one should boast before God. – 1 Corinthians 1:27-29

    October 29, 2020

    Hate much? The Pharisee stood in the temple and said “thank God I am not such as these” but who went home justified? You said it in your hateful comment “for ALL have sinned” and who are we to judge? I am sorry you feel so much hate. I pray for you too.

      October 29, 2020

      I don’t hate anyone because the Lord resides inside of me! However, God said, you’ll know my people by their light! If you see light in Trump, show it to me because I don’t see it! He hates immigrants who are brown, he hates blacks and he has no regard or respect for women! I will pray for YOU! I’m not judging, just knowing the Lord that I serve would NEVER treat another human being in such a demeaning and disrespectful way. I’m not going to argue or disrespect you, so please don’t disrespect me and call me hateful because we’re not in agreement. I must say, that’s not very Christ-like.

        October 29, 2020

        You ask so I will try to show you. First, Pres. Trump obviously does not hate immigrants. His mother and his wife are immigrants. He simply wants those who wish to immigrate do it legally, as they should. Also, surely we would not want harmful, dangerous people to come in and live in our neighborhoods; therefore, he wants to screen immigrants.
        He obviously does not hate black people! He has had black friends for years before he ran for president. Many black people are supporting him for his second term. They acknowledge that he has done more for the black community than past presidents, including Obama.
        Pres. Trump is supported by many, many women, and he has so much respect for women that he has women working in the cabinet including Sec. of Education and the press secretary. He nominated a woman Supreme Court judge. His actions over the last almost four years prove that he has respect for women.
        As far as the sins of the past, EACH of us has sinned, including David, Samson, Paul, and one of the thieves on the cross. Rahab was a prostitute, and, yet, God includes her in the faith chapter. Hebrews 11:31 I wonder how you would respond to each of the people I have mentioned who God loved and used. Would you argue with God in HIs decision to use and love them. Jesus was very harsh with the Pharisees, but spoke kindly to the woman at the well.
        I pray that God will reveal truth to you and others who have been deceived by the lies and deception of the main stream media and the devil. I respect you enough to give you truth, and love you enough to want you to be able to live in freedom. Pres. Trump is the president who will continue to protect our freedoms and our way of life.

    October 29, 2020

    The degree of hatred that you comment with is grievous and I truly feel sorry for you. As Christians, we are called to love, not judge. God will hold us to the same standard that we judge others with. We all have a past and when we accept Jesus, we are then works in progress, working out our salvation. God also calls us to pray for those in authority over us as HE puts kings and rulers in their positions. I am praying for you that you will truly experience God’s love in your heart. Only then will you find freedom.

    I don’t see how a born again Christian can vote for a candidate that promotes, without apology, the killing of unborn babies,up to and after birth, and will force us who DO believe that life begins at conception and ends at natural death to fund these abortions, not only in America, but around the world. Psalm 139:14-16 says, “I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in Your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. This tells me God sees life beginning at conception. He even knew us before we were conceived and has a plan for our lives. Throughout the Bible, God used unlikely people to accomplish His plan for His chosen people, such as Cyrus, who did not worship Elohim, but God anointed him (Isaiah 45:1) to help the Israelites return to Judah after the end of 70 years in captivity. Yes, President Trump can be abrasive. I sometimes cringe at things he says but look beyond that and how he is working to bring us back to our Constitution. If the other administration gets into power, our constitutional liberties will erode. I’m praying God will remove the blinders the enemy has placed over your eyes that you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.

      October 29, 2020

      I am I in total agreement with you. My comment was for others opposing. Sorry.🙏😊

        October 29, 2020

        My reply was to Deb who has a problem with so called Christians and Trump being a pathological liar. Some of these comment threads can get a little confusing.

          October 29, 2020

          Sandra, he is a pathological liar and it’s been proven time and time again! My God, it’s not hard to fact check him! If you can’t see that, I feel sorry for you! Please take the blinders off! I’m out now – have no desire to argue over Trump! As a woman, and a woman of God, I find him sickening due to his utter disrespect for women and anybody who doesn’t agree with him. I praise and worship the Lord, not Trump!

    October 29, 2020

    Be very careful. Who God declares is clean is clean. Our righteous is as filthy rags, so take the Pharises glasses off. If you be without sin, then you cast the first stone.

    October 29, 2020

    Only God knows our hearts………….. He looks on the heart not the outward appearance.
    Jesus warned, “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.” Matthew 7:1
    Matthew 7:15-23. Verse 20 So then, you will know them by their fruits. (NASB)

    Has President Trump provided any fruit?? Look at the partial list above,

You have laid out all the reasons President Trump has done a great job for the American people and should continue 4 more years. It saddens me when people, especially Christians listen to the false accusations put out constantly by the media and the Democrats and are deceived by them. When you consider the alternative, it is scary to think what our country could become. I do believe God has heard the cry of His people and we will be afforded 4 more years of a president that upholds the Christian values we hold so dear. The fight won’t stop there. We need to continue in prayer for our country and its leaders and for revivalist come to our nation and the world.

It surprises me that any Christian would NOT consider President Trump for another term. Just ask the Lord! If you don’t hear the Lords voice then look at Trumps record (which Paula just gave us).
If all you heard about him is how nasty he is and the worlds worse liar — you have believed every word the devil threw at him (via the media).
The American people love him! and are drawn to him — does that tell you that GOD draws those people? Think about all he has done for us! That is your reason to pray for him and vote for him! Believe me, its wonderful to live in a Christian country, and be in one nation, “under GOD” you don’t want anything else.
Now send him some campaign money, pray for him and have a MERRY CHRISTMAS! Remember we weren’t allowed to say that anymore? GOD BLESS YOU ALL — AND TELL EVERYONE ELSE THAT TOO. JESUS loves you! Amen.
