Are you saying Trump is not a Christian? I think we’re on the same page on that thought. I do however pray and hope he comes to repentance and believe Jesus as his Lord some day. Same goes for any human being including you.

Idk. To each their own. But some say he is using the faith.

I think he is. He's using whatever he can to get more votes. That's what every candidate does in this political world. Trump does a good job at making things look not so political, but every statement he says is very political to the core. He's a smart guy. I usually don't like posting political stuff here, but just to have some fun before the election...

That is not being smart. It is called taking advantage of the situation.

Business Insider: Some Christians say Trump has pushed young people away from their churches — and his impact on Christianity could last well beyond his presidency

But for some Christians, Trump has shaken their relationship to their religion so much so that they have broken ties with family, friends, and even their churches.
You're either a Christian who's conservative and supportive of Trump or a Christian thats really confused and hates the situation you're in, Maria Felix told Business Insider.

I don't like how Trump or any Republican candidates take advantage of Christianity in wrong ways like that either. Both right and left wings are from the same evil corrupt bird. Political world is just a mess.

Someone who blames a certain person or a figure for abandoning faith is not really a genuine believer IMHO. They shouldn't base their decision from a person but only from the Word of God, The Bible.

Our church is having limited capacity. You have to make a reservation ahead, but I'm sure some just walk in on Sunday also. If the Covid rate keeps going down (or if that's what the official says at least), all the churches in OC will probably open fully back to normal by end of this year.

Meanwhile, some pastors in Canada are being arrested for having church. I'm sure LA county is so much different than OC as well. Even Huntington or Newport Beach areas seem drastically different than Irvine. Interesting world we live in.

Churches are almost fully back to pre pandemic mode again. I still do wear masks because I got so used to not showing my full face, but ain't nobody wears that thing no more. Further south the churches are, less mask wearers will be. They look at me like I'm some kind of a democrat or something. Hey, it's kind of a joke, but still true. ;)

@eyephone

Stay here for this topic. It was a joke. I mentioned that above for you since you tend to take joke seriously.

And you’re right. Churches should teach the Bible and stay out of politics.

The Hill article: The Rev. Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Dallas said this week that "there is no credible religious argument" against receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

Jeffress, an ardent supporter of former President Trump, told The Associated Press in an interview that he and his staff at First Baptist Dallas "are neither offering nor encouraging members to seek religious exemptions from the vaccine mandates."

The comments from Jeffress come after members of different Christian communities say that they oppose taking the coronavirus vaccine because fetal cell lines were used in COVID-19 vaccine testing, according to the news outlet. Fetal cell lines, however, are not present in the actual vaccines.

"Christians who are troubled by the use of a fetal cell line for the testing of the vaccines would also have to abstain from the use of Tylenol, Pepto Bismol, Ibuprofen, and other products that used the same cell line if they are sincere in their objection," Jeffress told the AP in an email.

Like I said right above, churches should stay out of politics and teach the Bible which has been lost for majority of churches in America today sadly.

Was it Christian-like for Grace church to sue the city/county for all that money?

You know the State took away their parking spots and mandated them not to gather for awhile, right? Not to mention the State sued them first so the church had no option but to sue back to stay open as a church and ask for the parking spot they've been leasing for 40+ years.

All in all, the church won the case and there was and is no real outbreak of Covid from that place which meets thousands of people weekly. If you think they sued to win money, you're very mistaken.
