VIA| Questioning a person about their relationship with God – let alone an entire denomination of Christianity – isn’t exactly where I think Donald Trump wants to be at the moment.
Nevertheless, here we are…
Donald Trump on Saturday raised questions about Republican presidential challenger Ben Carson’s faith with recent surveys showing the retired pediatric neurosurgeon leading among voters in Iowa and Wisconsin.
“I love Iowa,” Trump told a rally in Jacksonville, Fla., The Washington Post reports. “And, look, I don’t have to say it, I’m Presbyterian.
“Can you believe it? Nobody believes I’m Presbyterian,” the billionaire developer added. “I’m Presbyterian. I’m Presbyterian.
“I’m Presbyterian. Boy, that’s down the middle of the road folks, in all fairness,” he said. “I mean, Seventh-day Adventist, I don’t know about. I just don’t know about.”
In his 1992 book, “Gifted Hands,” Carson disclosed that he is a twice-baptized Seventh-day Adventist.
What doesn’t he know?
What’s he saying? He doesn’t know that a Seventh-day Adventist can lead a nation. Is that it?
Stop with the sorcery, Mr. Trump!
But seriously, what is he getting at here?
Seventh-day Adventists are merely Protestants, and Protestantism is a sect of Christianity, so…
Ultimately, I don’t think Christians need to be attacking other Christians, especially since the Obama White House is doing a better job with that than we could’ve ever imagined.
Maybe this is this just Trump’s way of saying welcome to the race, Ben.
