Short version. The country was founded on religious freedom. Four colonies Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. Different denominations, all Christian. No state church like Church of England. Belief in God and Ten commandments. Most of the presidents came from old line churches steeped in ritual. Evangelicals the point is preaching and spreading the word of Christ. Since the founding of the country there have been many church splits creating many denomination, but still Christian. Other religions began to show up/ Splits occurred over differences like slavery or when people felt the message of Christ was not being followed.
Presidents have run the spectrum of individual beliefs. Some kept it private, while others were vocal to various degrees. They did not challenge the history of the country. They believed in the Ten Commandments. They had their own beliefs but did not create their own denomination or religion. To day some people cherry pick the doctrines of the denominations but few mix different religions. The gay or homosexual issue has split churches and religions.
Some people preach the love of the Christian without mentioning repentance and saving grace. For most evangelicals keeping the commandments still have to be followed. There is still a matter called sin.
Obama had Muslim influence as a child. He said he was converted to Christianity. Does he follow the tenets of either religion or both plus his own thinking. Has he created a religion unto himself? What do his actions as President show? Gay rights, institution of marriage, handling of the Muslims, rights of women, immigration, ruling by executive order.
Is Hilary following the teaching of John Wesley the founder of the Methodist Church? With her numerous contacts has she been partially converted to another religion? Look at the people that have been part of her staff. Look who has donated to the Clinton Foundation,
Many evangelical churches have separated from the Methodist church. For Hillary power is everything, religion could be major or no part of her. Ask the same questions of Hillary that you asked Obama. Just because at one time a Methodist, she can still fall from the will of God, other people have and still do.. Teaching Christian love without repentance is false teaching, for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
Trump might not have the best background for some Christians, but be better in protecting their rights. Some people know what the right thing to is even if they haven’t done it. Actions speak louder then words. Some people have high moral values, but with Christians it should be a high priority. Which is worse messing yourself up or the country? Look what Hillary has messed up and the cost of what she has done.Tags: Hillary Clinton President Barack Obama
