    It’s not like it could hurt anything. If God is real all that prayer would be effective. If God is not real then nothing is hurt.

    I actually agree that praying can’t hurt but trump doing anything remotely religious or generous is laughable, he’s just pandering.
    On the flip side, I see plenty of honest good intention and love for humankind coming out of this issue.
    Our neighborhood has had several people step forward to offer free childcare for working parents around the town. Thought that was kind and def needed.

    Your examples probably aren’t Christian, that’s the problem.

    Many people are saying he is. Some say he might actually BE god.

    With regard to some who try to assess and quantify the level or quality of another’s (eg Trump) Christianity, wonder what level of Christian quality they assign to the Americans who choose to support and/or engage in “abortion as a means of birth control”?

    Lame comparison, people who get abortions probably aren't saying things like "No one reads the bible more than me" and posing for pictures like this ...

    Actually you did not understand the question or are simply trying to deflect to evade answering.

    Or, more likely, ask a tough question and get a deflection because someone doesn’t want to provide an intelligent, objective response.

    So you really don't see the difference between two people who do "unchristian things", but one literally claims to be the most Christian person on Earth, and the other may not even be a Christian?

    Prattvile, AL-Go Lions!
    This forum lately has turned into a "I like Trump, I hate Trump" in almost every thread and this accomplishes nothing. Our country is going through a trying time right now and we all need to work together to do what we can to help the situation. Many believe in the power of prayer and should not be ridiculed for it. What are you doing to help?

    Keeping my workers safe, helping single parents in the neighborhood, running errands for our immune compromised neighbor......
    Not sitting around praying or gathering in large groups to pray and spread disease.

    Nothing against prayer, just the hypocrisy of him calling for it, just pandering to his base. Dude stalks children in dressing rooms.

    Still refuse to honestly answer the question? Really?

    I see differences in all people and their behaviors and actions. But I’m not the person saying one is better or worse, others are doing that and those are the individuals to whom I direct my question.

    Good, then you are admitting it's a stupid question. Who would anyone criticize a non-christian for not acting like a Christian?
