Donald Trump has recently been more outspoken about his “favorite book”.
The Republican frontrunner sat down with Pat Robertson at Regent University on Wednesday. The two discussed a vast array of issues from the Iran nuclear deal to John Kerry’s biblical study habits.
When asked about the disaster of a deal that the United States agreed to, Trump said, “We give them $150 billion. We got nothing for it. We should have gotten our prisoners back long before we started negotiating. Kerry is the worst negotiator I think I’ve ever seen. Obviously Kerry did not read ‘The Art of The Deal’. Probably didn’t read the Bible either.”
As far as knowledge of the Bible goes, Trump believes he is second to none. Trump had declared before the Nevada primary on Tuesday that “Nobody reads the Bible more than me.”
Trump named the Bible as his favorite book in August of 2015, according to the Christian Post. When asked at the time what his favorite verse of his favorite book is, Trump responded “I wouldn’t want to get into it. Because to me, that’s very personal. The Bible means a lot to me, but I don’t want to get into specifics.”
Recently Trump was attacked by the Pope as not being “Christian” with his plans to build a border wall. Trump responded in severe disappointment that the Pope would question a person’s religion. Now only a few days later, the tables are turned.
In these moments it would benefit everyone, from the Pope to the presidential candidates to the political insiders to take a step back and ask themselves: Am I perfect in my faith to the point I can attack others?
The answer should always be a resounding "No." Do you agree?
