    If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
    II Chronicles 7:14

    Our founding fathers would be the first to tell us – if they could – that the nation that trusts in God will prevail and the nation that places their trust in anything else, will not.

    Nowhere in the Bible does it tell us to place our trust in men. Yet that is precisely what has happened during this 2016 GOP presidential race. While Donald Trump may not be a born again Christian, I do believe he is being saved. Trump has not abandoned the truth in exchange for a GOP establishment endorsement.

    Donald Trump's sincerity places him light years ahead of those who are playing the part of hypocrites.

    I am not so convinced that Trump's opponents are genuine followers of Jesus Christ. We've got a former Catholic who converted to Mormonism and then converted back to Catholicism and a Southern Baptist who is described as a Pentecostal. The Southern Baptists do not believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit while the Pentecostal denomination does.

    Ted Cruz has more than one question mark hanging over his own head today.

    Marco Rubio's personal attack ads against Trump in Florida speak volumes about his brand of religion - ruthless ambition with little regard for truth or righteousness. His borrowing habits and debt problems reveal a man who is not capable of managing his own household much less a 19 trillion dollar national deficit.

    While Donald Trump has proven he is an astute businessman, he is not God and he cannot give us what isn't his to give. I'm voting for Trump but depending upon the LORD for America's salvation.

    America's blessings come from the Lord. The Christians in America are called by God. When we pray and seek God's face and turn from our wicked ways, God will hear from heaven, forgive our sin and heal our land.

    It is “our ways” that have kept us from the blessings of God. Not crooked politicians who have bent their knee to Baal. We have elected such men because our discernment has been hindered by the sin in our land.

    Our nation is hanging in the balance right now due to a power struggle which is attempting to redefine the future of our sovereignty. House Speaker Paul Ryan has stated that Trump is wrong to suggest a ban on Muslim immigration. Paul Ryan said, “That is not who we are.” House Speaker Paul Ryan is using President Obama's talking points verbatim.

    I have a question for President Obama and his spokesman Mr. Ryan. Who do you think we are?

    Our founding fathers had some pretty specific ideas about that. Thomas Jefferson understood the danger of Islam. Under his administration, America suffered her first Islamic attack. The story is preserved in the Marine's Hymn. It is the oldest official song in the United States military.

    To the shores of Tripoli refers to the first Barbary War which was fought against Muslim pirates who had captured our Marines and held them for ransom.

    The lyrics, to the Halls of Montezuma refers to the battle of Chapultepec during the Mexican-American war.

    The Marine's Hymn ends with these words:

    In many a strife we've fought for life and never lost our nerve;
    If the Army and the Navy
    Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
    They will find the streets are guarded by United States Marines.

    One of our most famous military songs reveals the history of our enemies are and who we once were. Proud of our faith and our country. Determined to defend it. A Christian nation. For any who doubt it, please read the lyrics to the Battle Hymn of the Republic!

    God's ways are higher than our ways but our ways have fallen far below the bar of who we should be. Our ways define us. When over 50 million babies are slaughtered legally by Planned Parenthood, whatever else is done is null and void. They are an evil organization and should be abolished.

    While the politically correct crowd will insist that going the way of Sodom and Gomorrah is not going to have repercussions – I beg to disagree. God defines marriage as between one man and one woman.

    We have lost our way as a nation but it is not too late. II Chronicles 7:14 is our answer. Trump will make a fine president but he cannot be our savior.

    America's salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone. We'll have to go to Him.

    Christians that cheer the killing of hundreds of thousands by 'their' military and then decry abortion as killing? 50 million? At least 200 million children have died in the last 25 years from hunger and disease around the world. Where were you? Where was 'god'?

    Nowhere. Yours is a fake 'god' who only wants you, your familiy, and your clan to survive and make money and be happy. It is a small 'god' of the clan. You don't view a human on the other side of the Earth as human.

    The founding fathers went to great lengths to make sure this is not, in fact, a Christian nation. Read Jefferson's views on religion.

    The battle Hymn of the Republican has no official standing. Yes, it is a very popular song. But your claims that this proves we are a Christian nation is simply wrong.

    The US was first attacked by Islam during Jefferson as president.I don't think a religion can attack people or capital ships...People of that religion does and can attack, but not a religion...

    We see it constantly - criticism of President Obama for not dropping bombs on civilians. The US has carried out more than 10K successful strikes against ISIL. That number does not count the planes that return to base without dropping their bombs.

    Republicans, including the candidates for president, say they want to "carpet bomb" ISIL but if you ask where they would do that, they can't answer because they want to kill innocent civilians. Obama has refused to do that and has insisted the US attack only the enemy.

    Have there been civilian casualties? Of course. But accidentally killing innocents is a hell of a lot different than what the right has said they would do.

    I just noticed Bleipriester 's sig ... This morning's news included footage from one of Pooting's strikes against ISIL. He ordered the bombing of a FRUIT MARKET in Syria. They hit it twice in what they call "double tapping". Footage showed many dead and wounded, including very small children. One little boy on a stretcher was moaning in pain. They said he died minutes later.

    According to RWs, that makes Pooting a "real leader" and Obama's targeting and successfully striking ISIL makes him a failure.

    OP says Trumpery has not abandoned the truth when, in fact, he has never even met the truth.

    And for Pete's sake, when will people stop saying the "founding fathers" designed the US to be a "christian" nation. OP really needs to educate herself.

    "I don't think a religion can attack people..."

    But we're seeing Trumpery and his followers attack a religion.
