A lot of attention and debate has surrounded Donald Trump’s personal relationship with Christ and his understanding of the Christian faith. Trump personally took the time last week to meet with over 900 of the leading Evangelical minds in the country. One of the people in attendance was Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on The Family.
Dr. Dobson believes that Trump is a “baby Christian” who is still learning how “believers think, talk and act.” According to the Christian Post, between Trump and Hillary Clinton, the choice is clear. He also believes that Trump has showed a commitment to Christ.
“Trump appears to be tender to things of the Spirit,” Dr. Dobson said. “I also hear that Paula White has known Trump for years and that she personally led him to Christ. Do I know that for sure? No. Do I know the details of that alleged conversion? I can’t say that I do.”
Paula White, also in attendance at the large Evangelical gathering said that she has known Trump for over 14 years. She recalled their first discussion: “I get on the phone and he starts to quote back to me three sermons that I preached,” White said. “I mean verbatim. Those sermons are ‘Value of Vision.’ I did the series about vision and he says, ‘your fantastic.’ He said, ‘it really ministered to me and I loved your preaching.’ So, he literally gave back to me, when I say verbatim, I mean point for point about the word.”
