More On Trump’s “Interfaith” Gathering at the White House

WEB Notes: We discussed this yesterday in our notes from a perspective of our rights. Today, we are going to look at this article from another perspective.

Notice, this was an “interfaith event“. Christians, Jews, Muslims and Sikh’s were present and if you read some of Trump’s quotes below he harps on “people of faith“. This has become a catch phrase that used to reference Christians, but now encompasses everyone. If you want to worship a rock, cow or some other false god, more power to you. But do not tie heathen worshippers in with Our Father Jehovah and call them “people of faith“. “Faith” in what? “Believers” of what? A rock? A cow? A sheep to forgive sin?

Trump is trying to play politics with the “religious” communities, but it is not going to work. Our Father does not play “religion” and you should not either. If it cannot be found in God’s Word it is a lie. Trump’s Executive Order does nothing and heathens are not bound with our Father. Sound harsh? Then maybe you have not read your Bible lately so let us do that together.

John 14:6
6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Did you hear Christ say anything about “people of faith“? Did you hear Him say anything about “interfaith“? No! He said, He is the way to our Father and it is Christ that leads us to eternal life. There are no other ways or routes. It is a narrow path for a reason (Matthew 7:13-14). Which path are you on?

“We are a nation of believers. Faith is deeply embedded into the history of our country,” he said, delivering a speech from the White House rose garden, surrounded by various evangelical, Catholic and Jewish leaders, including Paula White, Jack Graham and Donald Wuerl.

Orthodox, Muslim and Sikh representatives also sat in the audience, and Trump advised that he would be traveling to Rome, Saudi Arabia and Israel this month—the centers of Roman Catholic, Muslim and Jewish faiths.

“Yet, for too long, the federal government has used the power of the state as a weapon against people of faith, bullying and even punishing Americans for following their religious beliefs,” Trump stated. “That is why I am signing today an executive order to defend the freedom of religion and speech in America.”

“Not only are we a nation of faith, but we are a nation of tolerance,” Trump declared. “We will not allow people of faith to be targeted, bullied or silenced any more. And we will never, ever stand for religious discrimination.”

  1. Very well stated, Brandon! Couldn’t agree with you more.

    NO interfaith with God…so NO interfaith for us!

    NO “lukewarm” like the Laodiceans with God!

    For it is written: Revelation 3:16

    “So then because thou art LUKEWARM, and NEITHER cold nor hot, I WILL spue thee OUT of MY mouth.”

    *****These are the ones who would NOT rock the boat, take sides, or stand on the side of anything. “Nothing” is what they
    stand for, and “nothing” is what you get from the sermons. As a church, the Laodiceans are just “good for nothing”. God finds them detestable and wants these people NOWHERE around Him.

    Word.

  2. I like the fact that he signed this EO to rid us of the Johson ammendment. But, he needed to be more narrow in his focus. Make the point that many belief systems are able to live here. But, make very clear treat it is because we are a Christian nation that they are. And that only the Christian faith will be recognized as the faith of this nation.

  3. The government is pushing to teach Islam in public schools, maybe that’s the reason for this? I have seen a video on the government document about Islam in public schools from another Christian site. Looked legit to me.
