WEB Notes: So we see the media hyping someone up once again and I see many thinking he will make a good president. Unfortunately, I see no one presented to us that would make a good President. Vote or do not vote it makes no difference to me. I do not like to talk about other peoples faith, so I will not talk about his, but I will tell you what our Father’s Word says. Read his quotes here and watch the interview and compare it to our Father’s Letter.

We absolutely must repent of our sins. Please turn your Bible with me to,

Acts 3:19
19Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.”

If we do not repent we are not washed in the blood of Christ. If we fail to repent of our sins and transgressions they will remain marked next to our name in the book of life.

Unfortunately, the Presbyterian church now stands with homosexuals. It was brought up that we do not need to repent if we are not making mistakes which is true. If you are perfect and sin free then you would have nothing to repent for. What does our Father’s Word say about flesh men being perfect? Please turn your Bible with me to,

Romans 3:23
23For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

Do we really need to make a further comment on that subject? Ecclesiastes 7:20 will also help you out.

It was also brought up that because of building monuments and employing people that makes you a good person with respect to God. Those are very nice acts no doubt, but how much good are they for our Father, do they move His Kingdom forward? Does he care about us building up monuments? Please turn your Bible with me to,

Matthew 6:19
19 “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:”

Earthly treasuries are absolutely worthless when it comes to our Father’s Kingdom.

Matthew 6:20-21
20 “But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:”

21 “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

This is the key verse right here. You can always tell where a mans heart is by their fruit and speech. I want to make it clear we are not picking on anyone here. We are taking what two men said and seeing how it aligns with our Father’s Word. I know there are a lot of young Christians out there and we want to make sure they properly understand what our Father seeks from us and what aligns with His Word and what does not.

Source: Christian News | During an interview on Wednesday with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump was asked to comment further on his response to a question at last Saturday’s Iowa Family Leadership Summit regarding whether or not he has ever asked God to forgive him.

As previously reported, Trump had been asked by moderator Frank Luntz during the Q&A segment of the event whether he has ever sought forgiveness for his sins.

“That’s a tough question,” he replied. “I am a religious person. People are so shocked when they find this out—I’m Protestant. I’m Presbyterian.”

“I go to church. I love God and I love my church,” Trump added.

“But have you ever asked God for forgiveness?” Luntz repeated, evoking laughter from the audience.

“I am not sure I have. I just go on and try to do a better job from there. I don’t think so,” Trump stated. “I think if I do something wrong, I think I just try and make it right. I don’t bring God into that picture. I don’t.”

“When we go into church and when I drink my little wine—which is about the only wine I drink—and have my little cracker, I guess that is a form of asking for forgiveness,” Trump explained. “I do that as often as possible because I feel cleansed, okay? To me, that’s important. I do that.”

He said he doesn’t really think about needing to ask God to forgive him.

“In terms of officially, I could say absolutely and everybody—-I don’t think in terms of that. I think in terms of, ‘Let’s go on and let’s make it right.’”

On Wednesday, CNN’s Anderson Cooper mentioned Trump’s response, stating that it had surprised some hearers.

“I go to communion, and that’s asking for forgiveness in my opinion,” Trump responded.

“The idea of asking [for] forgiveness, is that a central tenant for you?” Cooper asked.

“I like to do the right thing where I don’t actually have to ask for forgiveness,” Trump replied. “Where you don’t [do] such bad things that you have to ask for forgiveness. I mean, I try and lead a life where I don’t have to ask God for forgiveness.”

Cooper then asked Trump if repentance is a subject that is important to him.

“I think repenting is terrific. I mean, it’s great,” Trump replied.

“But do you feel the need to?” Cooper inquired.

“If I make a mistake, yeah, I think it’s great. But I try not to make mistakes,” Trump replied. “Why do I have to repent, why do I have to ask for forgiveness, if you are not making mistakes? I work hard. I’m an honorable person. I have thousands of people who work for me. I have employed tens of thousands of people over the years.”

“You give millions to charity,” Cooper chimed in.

“I built the Vietnam memorial in lower Manhattan with a small group of people,” Trump exclaimed. – Read More – Christian News
