Christians upset about Pastor David Platt praying for President Trump need to get right with God, conservative pundit Allie Stuckey argued in her most recent episode of BlazeTV.
“I don’t see how if you are a Christian, who believes in the Bible, how you could have any beef with this whatsoever?” she asked bluntly. “The fact of the matter is there is no biblical reason to have any problem with it.”
“If you have a problem with this prayer, and you call yourself a Christian then you have a problem with the word of God. You don’t have a problem with David Platt or Donald Trump, you have a problem with the Word of God.”
Stuckey explained that having a problem with praying for the President, is not a problem with him, but in fact a problem with the Word of God.
“You have a problem with 1 Timothy 2:1-6,” she said. “That is your beef, I would take that up with God if I were you.”
Stuckey pointed out that if you are living in this state where praying for the president angers you, then you need to repent of your sins.
“I would say God, forgive me for not believing your word. Forgive me for not believing you, forgive me for not prioritizing the supremacy of scripture, and change my heart. I am a sinner I am sinful for being angry over this.”
“If you are angry over this then you need to repent of this sin because you are living and pushing in opposition to the what the Word of God says.”
She added that she would be saying the same exact thing if someone was criticizing a pastor for praying over Barrack Obama, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, or Pete Buttigieg.
“Any Republican, any conservative who calls themselves a Christian that has beef about that kind of prayer being prayed over a Democrat, I would be saying the same thing to you,” she said. “That your problem is with the word of God and has nothing to do with President Trump.”
She added that the mind of the Christian left has been so infected by politics, “that they don’t want Trump to be saved if he is not already.”
“They don’t want his salvation, they don’t want him to be influenced, they don’t want him to lead in a way that is just. They don’t want to be able to say that God has changed his heart.”
“That is sinful, that is hate, that is evil, and as we know from 1 John 1:9 that you cannot hate your brother and love God at the same time.”
She challenged believers to look at themselves if they were struggling with a pastor praying over the President.
“If you as a Christian hate someone so much that you don’t want them to be saved, then that is wrong because God loved you. You know that President Trump, apart from Christ, is no worse than you are, right?”
“You know that all of us apart from Christ are dead in our sin? That’s what Ephesians 2 says, that we are dead in our sin.”
Stuckey emphasized that each person is saved by grace through faith, that no person is better than another, and that each person needs the saving grace of God.
“Good job to David Platt,” Stuckey added. “I don’t think he even needed to issue an explanation.”
She pointed out that it came across as giving validity to those in his church who had been angry, and wrongly so.
“This should have been more of a rebuke, than any sort of concession,” she added.
