The Christian and the Trump Administration

nintchdbpict000281037574-752x440On January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America at the 58th Presidential Inauguration.

As a Christian and citizen of the United States of America, I will pray for the success of the Trump Administration (1 Timothy 2:1-5).  I will submit to the Trump Administration with the conviction that “all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God” (Romans 13:1; see also 1 Peter 2:13-17).

But when a government goes against the will of God, “We must obey God rather than any human authority” (Acts 5:19).

Moreover, as a Reformed Christian I must confess and stand on the sovereignty of God in all things.

“Praise the name of God forever and ever,
    for he has all wisdom and power.
21 He controls the course of world events;
    he removes kings and sets up other kings.
He gives wisdom to the wise
    and knowledge to the scholars.” (Daniel 2:20-21, bold added)
