TruNews, and I have no idea who they are, is reporting that Dr. James Dobson, of Focus on the Family fame, reported that Donald Trump has trusted in Christ and that we should all be praying for him.
Well, no, he hasn’t exactly trusted in Christ for salvation. Dr. Dobson said: “He did accept a relationship with Christ, I know the person who led him to Christ, and that’s fairly recent.”
Under the direction of scripture, which calls for 2 or 3 credible witnesses, let’s just put the breaks on for a moment. First off, accepting a relationship with Jesus Christ does NOT lead to salvation. Trusting in Christ for salvation, leads to salvation. Please, hear me out on this. This is important. Jesus did not die on the cross so that we could have a relationship with Him or the Father. He died on the cross because we are sinners in need of forgiveness, and who need to have God’s wrath towards us satisfied. So, for us to be saved, we must first understand that we are sinners, and know that we are justly deserving of God’s eternal damnation.
