Dobson Says Trump is Born-Again
Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family based in Colorado Springs, CO told a pastor last week that he knows Donald Trump was recently born again and is still in his infancy as a Christian. According to the interview, he has personal knowledge of the leader who led Trump in the way of salvation. Dobson exhorted that we need to be praying for him as he walks out his faith.
Trump also recently told a group of leading evangelicals in New York City last week that he is, "a tremendous believer."
Trump has been outspoken throughout his campaign in support of freedom of religion and specifically has targeted Christians in his voice of support. Asked by Bloomberg earlier in his campaign, Trump refused to name a specific "favorite verse" of Scripture, yet none the less he claims to be a believer and has a Protestant background.
Are there some things that aren't fully worked out in regards to his walk with God? Yes. As there are in all of us. But by prayer and petition with thanksgiving Paul exhorted us to remain fervant in prayer for all men and especially those in authority.
The NY Times reported the Trump campaign declined commenting on Dobson's interview.
