A Word from Pastor Paul Blair

Why I as a Pastor am personally supporting President Trump

 MORE INFO  

“You are a Christian! So why do you support Donald Trump?”

 

 

I was asked this question on Social Media. I quickly responded and was amazed at the ease in which the facts came. These are nothing more than MY PERSONAL reflections. They neither reflect my church or my denomination, but I have been asked for copies so here you go.
 

ACTS 17:11

The Apostle Paul complimented the Bereans because they listened attentively to what he had to say, then got in their Bibles to make sure Paul was right. We should use the same approach. As Reagan said, “Trust, but verify.” Unfortunately, the national news services have proven to be so biased they have totally discredited themselves as being trustworthy. It is important that we learn to read articles and sort out the writer’s opinions and bias from the few facts within a particular story.

I was late to the Trump train. I was not even a Trump fan when the world loved his popular his highly rated “The Apprentice.” I never watched the show once. Early in 2016, I was an outspoken supporter of Ted Cruz. After four years, Donald Trump has become my favorite President.

The 2016 Election was the first time in 227 years we did not have a peaceful transition of power between Presidents. From the day after the election, Democrats pledged to impeach him, the media has relentlessly maligned him, and thousands of Obama administration holdovers have worked to undermine and betray him. Honestly, I do not know how the man is still standing.

Now I hear such comments about Trump being this or that without one scrap of evidence. They are just lying. However, for socialists there are no rules. The ends justify the means.

As we are preparing for the most important election of our lives – one which clearly contrasts freedom and the free market OR socialism and state control of everything with no individual liberty or religious liberty, these are some of the points I quickly jotted down from memory on the back of sheet of paper. Reasons why I, as a Christian and a Patriot, support the re-election of Donald Trump.

For such a time as this,

What I Like About President Trump

    .
  10. Donald Trump pulled America out of the UN’s grab for Power through the Paris Agreement.
    .
  11. Donald Trump pulled America out of the terrible Iran Nuclear Deal after President Obama gave Iran $1.8 billion in CASH and unfroze $150 billion in other assets.
    .
  12. Donald Trump pulled America out of the World Health Organization after they bungled dealing with China during the Covid-19 outbreak. The WHO claims abortion is an “essential service” during Covid-19.
    .
  13. Donald Trump has blocked the Individual Mandate penalizing people who don’t wish to purchase health insurance as is forced by Obamacare.
    .
  14. Although Isis was birthed after President Obama helped facilitate the Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt, President Trump led in destroying the Islamic Caliphate.
    .
  15. Donald Trump has reversed Bill Clinton’s Crime Bill of 1994. This bipartisan effort reduced the mandatory minimum sentences for certain drug offenses. An effort to make sure the punishment fit the crime but not exceed the crime.
    .
  16. Donald Trump wants to secure our borders. If you lock your door at night, then you believe in border security.
    .
  17. Donald Trump renegotiated trade deals to better serve the United States.
    .
  18. Donald Trump is the first President to get tough with China with their intellectual property theft.
    .
  19. Donald Trump orchestrated an agreement where the United Arab Emirates recognized Israel’s right to exist.
    .
  20. Donald Trump provided an opportunity for American investors to bring their investments back within the United States without punitive taxes and helped foster the economic boom of 2018-2019.
    .
  21. While Democratic Governors and Mayors are shutting churches down, President Trump declared Churches as ESSENTIAL services.
    .
  22. For the first time in 70 years, America is energy independent under President Trump’s leadership.
    .
  23. Either, the Covid-19 crisis has been largely overplayed for political reasons, and IF SO, President Donald Trump was willing to shut down his thriving economy and guaranteed reelection just in case Dr. Fauci was telling the truth OR Fauci was telling the truth and because of the President’s actions less than 10% of the projected 2 million have actually died WITH (not from) Covid-19 complications. EITHER WAY, DONALD TRUMP WAS HEROIC IN HIS ACTIONS. There is not a third option. When President Trump was halting travel from Wuhan, Speaker Pelosi went to Chinatown to “Hug a Chinese”. Who actually cares about America and who is playing to the camera for political gain?
    .
  24. Although the left consistently lies and calls him a Fascist, Trump has REFUSED to issue a national mask mandate, choosing to leave those decisions to each state. Biden vows a mandate and even another shutdown. Who is the Fascist?
  25. .

What I DON’T Like about President Trump

 
1.  I don’t like deficit spending. Donald Trump has been just as guilty as Barak Obama of adding to our National Debt.
.
2.  Although not reflected in public policy, I am concerned that Donald Trump is soft on LGBTQ+ activism.
