Trump Should Steer Clear of Religion

The outsiders dominating the Republican presidential primaries – Donald Trump and Ben Carson – have largely stayed out of each other’s way. But with new polls showing the retired neurosurgeon finally pulling ahead of Trump in Iowa, the game is set to change.

“We have a breaking story: Donald Trump has fallen to second place behind Ben Carson,” Trump said at a Miami rally on Friday. “We informed Ben, but he was sleeping.”

Had Trump stuck with the low-energy theme – a criticism that might land harder on Carson than it did on Jeb Bush – he would have been fine. We’ve come to expect some tough jabs from Trump, even when they aren’t necessarily called for. But Trump…being Trump…had to take it a little further.

In Jacksonville the next day for another rally, Trump said, “I’m Presbyterian. Boy, that’s down the middle of the road folks, in all fairness. I mean, Seventh-day Adventist, I don’t know about. I just don’t know about.”

Questioned on ABC about his remarks, Trump said that he didn’t owe Carson an apology. “I know nothing about it really – I’m a Presbyterian and I had mentioned that, and I did say I don’t know about it, and in fact those are my exact words, so I just really don’t know about the Seventh-Day Adventists, and that’s what I said.”

This is the famous “here are my exact words” defense that Trump used to skate through his “blood coming out of wherever” remarks about Megyn Kelly. It’s about as believable now as it was then. Trump gets a lot of credit for his refusal to apologize, but that refusal would be more admirable if he would just stand by his comments. But hey, it seems to be working.

And to be fair, Carson can hardly complain. He’s put religion on the table by saying that Muslims should not be president. And to be even more fair, Carson really isn’t complaining. He told Fox News Sunday that he would not “get in the mud pit” with Trump, but he’s not out there crying persecution.

Trump would be wise to steer clear of religion from here on out, though. Not just Carson’s, but also his own. His “I’m a great Christian” shtick is inauthentic. And maybe he really is a deep man of faith, who knows. But his popularity is born out of his frankness and candor; when he starts talking about his “favorite book,” he comes off like he’s selling a used car with a suspicious history.

  2. I wish Trump would mention when he has been inside of a church. I don’t think the religious right will like.it.

    • I get your point but there are lots of people sitting in church who live like the devil.

    • I had a former boss who often touted her “Christianity” and talked of going to Church every Sunday.At the same time, she cussed like a sailor, was divorced, regularly treated people like sex objects and treats employees like dirt. I saw no evidence of ” Christianity” in that woman.

      • Do you consider yourself a far right Christian?

        • Yes, I do. Consider that I was a registered Democrat for more than 20 years until 2008.

          • You have obviously started taking stupid pills or you are a Republican which are born liars. I don’t believe you were a registered Democrat for 20 years. If you were you would acknowledge how much Obama has done for this country and how much he has tried to do for this country. The Republicans have filibustered over 500 of his bills that he proposed. That do nothing Republican congress we have had since 2008 has sabotaged his presidency for 7 years. They tried everything to make him look as bad as George W. Bush. You don’t have to be smart to know who to vote for you just have to have a little common sense.

    • Know ye not that you are the temple of the Holy Spirit. If you think that going to a building once a week will save you, then you are the religious nut! Christianity is a way of Life and like anything in life, there is trials and errors and tribulations and mistakes as we Learn the WALK!

      • If you learned the WALK then you must be part of the Christian right?

        • Well, I will answer you this way; Jesus told Peter if you want a good catch, throw your net on the RIGHT side of the boat. Jesus said, ‘The sheep go to my RIGHT and the goats to my left. Stephen while being stoned to death said, I saw Jesus standing at the RIGHT side of the FATHER! Let me see now, yep, yep, I’m on the RIGHT SIDE!!!!

          • Pamela… Waynie is a TROLL! Wake up..

          • Then you don’t mind throwing the first stone. You must think highly of yourself if you are without sin.

          • Excuse me?? I see that you cannot read. If I am with Stephen, then it looks like to me that YOU are the one throwing stones and maybe chopping off heads? TROLL

          • It’s obvious you are not only a stone thrower but a name caller to. Shame shame on you.

          • Jesus called worse names than that which many I am sure pertain to YOU such as Liar, murderer, thief, and several more. Another man told me that you were a Troll and troublemaker and ignore you and SO you have proved he is right and Go away troll. Go read your bible and ask forgiveness and maybe those hateful demons will leave your body if you tell them to go, but maybe you want them there so you can persecute Christians? I will not answer you again but I will bind you in the Name of Jesus and send you to the feet of Jesus!

          • There are a lot of false prophets out there you can add your name to that list also.

          • I am not a prophet. I am a sinner saved by GRACE, not by works lest any man should boast. I study the Bible every day and I listen to the Holy Spirit and know what He is saying for my life. I don’t go to church. I am the church! The church is a People, not a building. Go away demon!

          • Thanks for reassuring me that my accusation is correct.

          • You may study the Bible every day but you certainly don’t live by it. There is nothing more sickening than to listen to a wannabe Christian giving their spiel. Try to stop throwing stones and try to understand what you are reading.

          • If you come to my door and harass me like you are doing now you evil man, it won’t be stones that are thrown at you. My husband told me to tell you he will be waiting for you. Oh and by the way, my husband is a big, tall beautiful BLACK man and Viet Nam Vet and won’t hesitate one bit to stop your evilness. You are evil and hateful and cannot leave it alone. You are an instigator of evil and continue to harass on this site. I am turning you in to the propriator this site.

          • You have me scared now. I will rest my case.

          • You don’t even know Jesus if you don’t mind throwing the first stone.

    • Read what Jesus told the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s Well. She brought up a question about proper place to worship. Jesus gave her God’s Answer. Read it.

  3. Donald Trump is a strong Christian a Presbyterian. Religion is man made. Christianity is not a religion it is reality. We are living it right now.

    • True Christianity is a living relationship with a resurrected Savior Jesus Christ.

    • How many times has Trump been divorced and remarried? Yeah, a real “strong Christian”. “Christians” need to grow a backbone and actually live as the Bible says instead of just mouthing off verses to justify their immoral lifestyles. If “Christians” weren’t such cowards, Amerika would not be what it is today — a pagan country with anti-Christians and Sodomites walking all over them.

      • Show in GOD’s word where divorce is the unforgivable sin! Stop your holier than thow attitude. GOD himself is a divorcee. Being divorced does not make one a second class person. Practice what you preach. YHVH IS JUDGE not man!

        Yes there are many pew Christians and as GOD teaches in the end times many will come professing to be Christians but are really Kenites. Donald Trump is not one of these.

        I agree with what you say about real Christians organizing Militias.

        • It’s not about divorce. It’s about living in public sin as an adulterer. E.g., “Christians” loved Ronald Reagan. God is not mocked. His Judgment is on this nation. God and guns are the solution, but if there is no sincere repentance, God will not provide the help necessary to restore the constitutional republic the founding fathers gave us. We will just continue living in economic bondage to the non-Christian Money Lenders. They financed the destruction of the family via the sexual revolution and femi-nazi movement. They are financing the destruction of neo-pagan Amerika with invasions of infidels and criminals south of the border, and AIPAC keeps the traitors in Congress in line. But, hey, don’t worry…all you good guys will be “Raptured” up just in time.
          Incredible how gullible “Christians” are. Some heretic dreams up this Rapture story 200 years ago and millions fall for it hook, line and sinker. But not so amazing knowing that God blinds the wicked.

          • Landholdt–Remember the Apostle Paul was not a Christian when God chose him as his main ambassador . God can use anyone he wants to accomplish his plan, that’s why we call him GOD

          • Hmmm. Interesting Nicholas. I guess Paul of Tarsus was a nutcake when he expounded on Christ returning His Second Advent and taking the Faithful dead and those still alive at the time up into the air with Him. And I guess we Faithful are “wicked” as you say. You just called God a lier.

          • As St. Peter said in the NT, you interpret Scripture to your destruction.

        • Bruce there is ONLY ONE unforgivable sin and it is summed up by St. John in the First Epistle of John, Chapter 5. But please tell me who God’s wife is/was that He divorced? I’ve never found that in Holy Scripture. You seem to know something God never told us about in His revelations to humanity. Please enlighten us. Thanks.

          • You must read the bible with understanding. GOD took Jerusalem to wife then wrote her a bill of divorcement.

      • You were doing fine until you got to the divorce comment and went kind of left field after that. The cleansing blood of Jesus Christ is GREATER than your sin. There is only one unforgiveable sin; blasphemy against the Holy Spirit! Maybe Donald was not fully committed to the Lord during his younger years as many have done starting out in the walk towards Christ. I’m thinking with your comment that you must think it’s ok to screw around and being unfaithful is ok. There is one Judge and if divorce is what is keeping you from voting for Trump, then I have my doubts about YOUR Christianity. We have all sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God, but by His saving grace and mercy, can come to repentance, to the Throne of Grace and be forgiven and lifted up. It’s personal, it’s sacred and you should treat it as such! Thank you

        • Pamela, Trump is not a practicing Christian. But I’m not voting for Trump b/c he is not a constitutional conservative. There isn’t one damn Stupid Party candidate who is. But stupid Americans keep compromising every election cycle and God’s chastisement is upon this nation. The traitors in Congress are the problem and that won’t be solved by some billionaire in the WH using a marketing sound byte claiming to “Make America Great Again”. The founding fathers gave the power to secure free states to We the People as “(a) well regulated Militia”. God and guns are the solution. Humble ourselves and ask for mercy and organize state militias.
          I’m working on Texas being the first constitutional Militia so we can become economically free by getting rid of the Money Lenders and their usury, along with their lapdog IRS. But we’ll need to revitalize the 15,000,000 Texians to provide the muscle for a fight if the traitors in WDC want to bring it. I know I’m taking a risk, but I’m terminal anyway so “Why Me Worry?” But I’m not getting the financial support necessary to do this fulltime. If anyone knows some wealthy patriots to back me, I’d also run a congressional campaign and use the Media against themselves to create a nationwide Militia movement. Have a few wealthy folks (owners of sports teams?) contact me and we can privately “talk turkey” about taking back America, starting with the most conservative gun-loving state.

          • Well Nicholas, I live in Texas. Am not in any wealthy elite group, just hard working citizen, but if I were you, contacting Greg Abbott would be a start! A very smart governor and just passed a law against sanctuary cities in Texas! Brought all of our gold back and doing all he can to preserve our second amendment rights.

          • I have tried contacting him. Nothing but silence on the Texas Militia. So, no, he is not doing all he can to preserve the 2A in Texas b/c the first 13 words of that amendment are not only more important than the last 14, but they are the most important in the whole Constitution. Without the State Militias, We the People are powerless.

      • I hate like hell to say this, BUT I AGREE WITH YOU!

        • Michael exercise your freedom of speech. It is guaranteed by the Constitution with thanks to the Founders, those dead old guys who got up every morning, went to work and cared for their families when there were NO handouts. And damned be any fecalith who tries to silence you or anyone else or take away your firearms if you own any.

      • If we hypocrites offend you , to bad. What kind of religion do you practice? If you spell it, spell it right pal .AMERICA. GOD , did not say anything about divorce. I am tied of phonies, like you telling every one they are wrong. May be your the wrong one. You seem to have all the criticisms

      • Irene Elizabeth Grooms

        I believe that if you are a true child of GOD YOUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN NO MATTER WHAT YOU’VE DONE.

      • Trump does not know that being Presbyterian will not get him into heaven…..He is clueless on Christianity…But there is hope for him…Let him do what he does well…run this country as a successful business…and ask God for guidance…

        • I agree maryann33. America needs a businessman/woman in the oval shaped CEO office. Keep lawyers and business people in the Congress and lawyers in the high court. And impose term limits on ALL elected/appointed offices.

          • The country is a BIG business to run….Huge, and the imposter in chief has run her into the ground…We need him OUT NOW so very badly….No one is at home raising human beings now.

        • When someone says their church affiliation doesn’t mean they are or are not a born again Christian and yes, born again is the key.

          John 3:3-7
          vs 3) Jesus said to Nicodemus, the ruler of the Jews, Verily, verily I say to you, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

          vs 4) Nicodemus said to him, How can a man he born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb and be born?

          vs 5) Jesus answered, verily, verily, I say to you, Except a man be born of water and of Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

          vs 6) That which is born of flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

          vs7) Marvel not then that I said unto you, You must be born again, ( meaning born from above).

      • Traditions of man make void the teachings of GOD!

    • And it doesn’t matter who is running for election to the highest office, THERE WILL BE NO ELECTION! The sooner that people understand and start believing this, the better..
      Under the direction of geo soros himself, a horrific riot will be created, the HTNIC will declare martial law, then declare himself a dick-tater! Then the decapitations will begin! Laugh now, but ALL of our politicians have sold us all down the river! No matter what any of them promise, this government SUCKS and the HTNIC is out to destroy Christianity!! Watch it happen!

    • Self-worshipers are not living Christianity.

    • God introduced the Hebrew religion through Moses; the first five Books of the Hebrew Scriptures. It is (not was) Jesus of Nazareth who introduced the Faith named for Him.

  4. Trump is a man who is worldly. You can see it by the way he verbally attacks people.

  5. What God is going to do is non-sectarian. None of us may like what God is going to do. That we are divided about what we ought to do and how we ought to do it is the crux of the issues that confront the country and which need to be addressed by those who are running for the office of President. We already know that the Presbyterians do not practice immersion baptism, if we really want to get knit-picky about religion.

    • Only Baptists practice immersion baptism.

      • Evidently you haven’t ever visited any Assemblies of God Churches…. Years ago I have even heard of Methodist Churches baptizing in farm ponds weather permitting….

        • I was raised a Methodist. No, they do not do immersion baptisms.

          • Wrong, if you had read the comment more closely you would see I said years ago….. I was in a Methodist church from birth up to the age of 42.. And my family church had in earlier times visited a farm pond to baptize…. This would have been in the 1950s and earlier…. I left the Methodist because of the lack of true dedication to God’s WORD throughout Methodist Church… They even had pastors that accepted homosexuality in the early 1990s…

      • Please check your facts before posting because you are 100% wrong on this.

  6. Presbyterian is not middle of the road as far as Christianity. Any religion started by some man or woman in the last 1700 years should be considered non-traditional. But it is not which “religion” you claim to be a part of, it is whether you have a personal relationship with God; otherwise it is in name only.

  7. Being an Immersed believer myself, I understand your thoughts. However, I must say this, in my 83 yrs on this earth, I have seen quite a few people enter the baptistery as “dry sinners” and come up out of the water as “wet sinners” I also believe that everyone should be around the”Lords Table” every Sunday, or Saturday if you are of the “Adventist” persuasion. ” The Donald” entering a church would be the same as seeing the Queen or a famous actor enter your place of worship. It would take everyones’ mind off their reason for being there. Yes, Donald should leave religious remarks out of his campaign, unless he knows for a fact that someone is a Satanist, (or a Muslim posing as something else)

  8. The Media is covering up the REAL Ben Carson b/c they don’t want Trump as the Stupid Party nominee. Carson has said he and Al Sharpton have the same goals. Don’t believe me? Well, you’ll have to go to the alternative media to find the goods on Ben Carson. Do a search on “Ben Carson Kelleigh Nelson” and check out the NewsWithViews article.

  9. Religion should be off the table for all politicians. This is a secular country.

    • Do your homework on the founding fathers and the founding of this country. You are wrong.
      Did you know that until the beginning of the 20th century, schoolkids learned to read from a Bible in the classroom?

      • Yes, until the beginning of the 20th Century many schoolkids did use the Bible as a source of learning to read. Mainly because there was no organized government requirement for schools and the Bible was pretty much owned by every family. They also learned math and science from farm chores and the buying and selling of goods.
        But homegirl is correct in one instance. We have become a secular country and it is because religion has been taken out of the equation.

      • Did you know the Constitution specifically forbids a religious litmus test to run for political office?

        Amendment One-ratified 1791.

        Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech…

        • The FedGov (Congress) shall make no law. Doesn’t mean States can’t. Read the Tenth Amendment and the history of early American state governments…and learn about “original intent”.

          • One of your previous posts clearly explains your political ambition, yet you appear to be a “constitutional conservative.”

            “Pamela, Trump is not a practicing Christian. But the reason I’m not
            voting for Trump is b/c he is not a constitutional conservative…and
            there isn’t one damn Stupid Party candidate who is. But ignorant,
            dumbed-down (thanks to the public fool system) Americans keep
            compromising every election cycle and God’s chastisement is upon this
            nation. The traitors in Congress are the problem and that won’t be
            solved by some billionaire in the WH using a marketing sound byte
            claiming to “Make America Great Again”.
            The founding fathers gave the
            power to secure free states to We the People as “(a) well regulated
            Militia”. God and guns are the solution. Humble ourselves and ask for

    • [Religion should be off the table for all politicians.] For most of the politicians this is the case and this is why United States is so messed up today…. Where there is no fear of the LORD there is corruption at every turn…. They seek the riches of this world at any cost and power over those they want to rule over…. Whereas a true Christian follows the main Commandments: Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Matthew 22:37-40 Thus, if a politician is a true Christian he seeks to do no harm to those that he serves….

  10. This so called tiff between Carson and Trump is fabricated and incited by all those liberals. Trump and Carson should ignore their noise and stick to the issues.

    • Awesome self delusion. Trump created it. Liberals are delighted with him.

  11. A persons degree of “Christianity” or which Church they attend is a personal choice. It should never be a point of contention or comment in a political race.

    • I agree with you Brenda. And that is the EVIL that kept Mit Romney out of the Presidency; too many ill informed judging Romney because of his Faith affiliation.
      They preferred a Muslim to a Christian. Says a lot about todays voters.

      • I don’t think it was his religion that caused him to lose it. I am southern baptist and it didn’t bother me. I was for him. It was voter fraud that did it and other illegal actions.

      • It was not about his “faith” or lack there of … He lost because he lost his spine in the debates with Obama. He decided to “play nice” – when he should have went in for the KO punch. But he did not … instead he let Obama walk all over him …. That is why Mitt lost …… that is also what concerns me most about Carson …. A LOT.

        • Cindy Covington-Huang

          and why did Mitt not run this year? He came to Washington to throw in his hat but was dissuaded. I wonder why and by who?

          • Mitt lost in 2012, NOT because he is Mormon – but because he proved to be a moron. He decided, for what ever strange reason to ‘play nice’ with Obama. He lost his backbone and thus lost the race. A lot of people and I do mean a whole lot of people were beyond disappointed when he did NOT take Obama’s Benghazi and other issues by the neck and chock Obama on them. Again, not because he was a Mormon, but more he proved to be a spineless moron.

AT THE HEIGHT OF BUYING AND BAGGING THE 7TH DAY ADVENTIST SAID I CANNOT COME TOMORROW I DO CHURCH ALL DAY. I SAID YOU WILL MISS OUT ON SOME GOOD STUFF. HE SAID I KNOW.
    CARSON IS ADMIRED FOR HIS CHARACTER, HIS HONESTY AND HIS MANNERS. TRUMP WOULD BE MORE SUCESSFUL PRAISING CARSON. THOSE WHO DIVIDE US WILL DESTROY US. BARTENDER I’LL HAVE A PRESBYTERIAN.

  13. Mr. Trump would be wise if he confessed his sins and accepted Christ as his personal Savior…. The vast majority of our politicians have no personal relationship with God and this is why United States is so messed up today…. Where there is no fear of the LORD there is corruption at every turn…. They seek the riches of this world at any cost and power to rule over all their constituents… Whereas a true Christian follows the main Commandments: Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Matthew 22:37-40 Thus, if a politician is a true Christian he seeks to aid and assist those that he serves….

  14. IT IS BEST TO NOT COMMENT ABOUT RELIGION EXCEPT TO STATE THAT ISLAMS GOAL IS THE DESTRUCTION OF ALL OTHER FORMS OF GOVERNMENT. iT HAS BEEN THE CHARGE SINCE mOOTIMID DECLARED IT SO AND CANNOT BE CHANGED . tHE LAST PROPHET OF ISLAM DIED IN 624 AND MUSLIMS HAVE BEEN TRYING TO FORCE THE WORLD BY VIOLENCE TO BECOME MUSLIME.
    ISLIME NEEDS TO BE ERADICATED FROM THIS WORLD

  15. Mr. Trump please keep your cool and stay calm and take the rest of the candidates for a rocky ride……We think alot of you and talking back to the spoiled brat Jeb was okay…let’s stay clear of the religious talk unless someone purposely bashes you! Hold your head high and your Prayer Warriors will be praying around the clock!

  16. Trump does not owe Carson an apology , he said that he didn’t know anything about Adventist, there’s nothing
    wrong with that, I also don’t know much about them, so do I owe them an apology?

  17. Stay away from religion. its a no win discussion…. stay focused on , Jobs, Defense, Economy.

  18. If you allow your enemy time, for what ever, that time will kill you… offense ,is best defense.

  19. Presbyterian is hardly a religion anymore and certainly not Christian in many places…Our walk with our God is quite personal…Trump is not there yet…He can get there, but ????

  20. Trump is a blowhard

  21. Trump made a significant blunder in bringing up Carson’s religion. It would show a lack of class on his part even if done at a small dinner party, but to a large crowd and on television……Just think how uninhibited he would be as president. We might all be embarrassed on a continual basis for his remarks here and abroad.
    If he’s nominated, I’ll vote for him rather than that cow, but I wish he’d mind his manners and more.

  22. Perhaps “steering clear of religion” is a good idea, but the country needs to know that Seventh-day Adventists are forbidden to work the 24 hours from Friday sundown until Saturday sundown. I was there 40 years – all my education, including college years, preacher’s wife, missionary, and taught in the schools and church myself. I know what I’m talking about. And they believe in soul-sleep: the “soul” is only the breath, and goes into the hole in the ground with the rest of the deceased body. No going to God when one dies. Also, eating pork will keep one out of heaven. They have a prophet who set up most of their 28 beliefs. You can research “The heresies of Seventh-day Adventism”. (I’ve writtenj a 500 – page book myself with hundreds of references. ) There is no excuse for anyone not knowing what Carson believes.

  23. Ya, I think Trump, Carson, & Cruz, should work together. Trump, president, Cruz Vice President, & Carson Surgeon General, then President when Trump & Cruz finish their terms.

  24. Presbyterians embrace gay marriage. That tells me everything I need to know. I will not follow those folks to hell. But Trump did say he didn’t know about the Seventh Day Adventists. He is not lying and he said nothing derogatory. But there are legions of khaki wearing, cubicle dwelling douchebags on both sides of the aisle who are biting at the chance to twist and manipulate his words!! The will even go as far as to create entire narrative based on BS psychic abilities an millions will lick it up. It is insane! Humans are such awful creatures!

    • So do Methodists – Baptists – and most other, no not all – Churches now. I just hope that when Trump is on the ballot, that you will vote for him?

      Why? Because if you do not vote for him, you have voted for the other side, by not voting …. Common Sense. So which is the least of the to evils?

  25. YES, unless you understand Christianity you should no go too deep into the principles because people naturally don’t want God in their lives.

    You start mentioning God in the wrong way and you can turn people off. I know Sean Hannity did when he said he would run for office if God told him.

    People think you are getting off your rocker. Besides God don’t tell you to run for office. He in fact said to STAY AWAY!!

  26. Religion is not Trumps strong point…..

    When he talks about it, he sounds just like a politician…

  27. Adventism is really a cult. It, along with the Jehovah’s Witnesses, came out of the Millerite Movement of 1844. As a Seventh-day Adventist Ben Carson believes in “soul-sleep,” i.e., that we do not have a soul that goes to God when we die. The soul is nothing more or less than the breath! He believes it is a sin to do any work on the Saturday sabbath, from Friday night sundown until Saturday night sundown. Church members are disfellowshipped if they they work in those hours. I don’t know how he plans to run the government during those hours. Of course, allowances are made for the members who are medical workers, as their medical work is called “the right arm of the Seventh-day Adventist Message.” They have many hospitals which purpose is to make church members.

    Ex-members have a little mantra going now: “Ben Carson, serving your country 24/6!” The church has a 19th Century prophet who set up the 28 rules of belief. Her multitudinous writings are considered on a par with Scripture. In the 1980’s it was discovered that she had plagiarized over 90% of her writings, and the church lost close to a million members. There are still members leaving at the rate of 300,000 yearly, although the evangelists are still bringing them in. Eating pork, drinking tea and coffee will keep one from Heaven. Adventists believe themselves to be The Only True Church, and other Protestant churches to be the daughters of the great Harlot of Revelation 17! You can research it on the Internet. The reason I know is that I was an Adventist student all the way through my college years, I was married to a minister, was a teacher and overseas missionary – for nearly 40 years. I have written a heavily-referenced book of over 500 pages about Seventh-day Adventists, including how they hide a lot of their beliefs from the public. Google m name and you can read it without cost online. Pat Pine Darnell

    • You bring up some good points as I am aware of the Saturday – Do Not Work – so this has to be asked. Dr. Carson, will you work for the Country on Saturdays? And yes, that is a totally fair question that NEEDS to be asked.

  28. Look, this is not a candidate for Church Deacon or Elder. Good grief … it’s about running a nation and having the knowledge and experience to:

    1st – Get the job market going again.
    …. Trump knows how to do this.
    2nd – It’s about restoring our Military
    3rd – It’s about restoring how the World see the USA.

    It is not about who believes in Jesus more or less. There is no “litmus test” for that. It is a heart matter … I know a lot of “Christians” that spout their “Faith” …. but when it comes to “walking the talk” … their walk is no different then … well …. their walk is not there.

    I want a Leader for a Nation – not a Church.

  29. Carson is for amnesty no thanks

  30. Religion is part of our culture as Americans whether it be politicians or atheists/liberals. If we give rights to homosexuals, bi-sexuals, transgenders and atheists and muslims, by gosh they can reciprocate by allowing those of us who are Christians and Jews to practice the religion we want and according to the Bible and Torah. Trump was only saying he is Presbyterian and that he does not know anything about the Seventh Day Adventist religion. I understand where he is coming from because I know nothing of the Seventh Day Adventists either. I am sure they are just as Christian as anyone else claiming to be a Christian. TRUMP is the only one who can MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN and with the help of Cruz and Carson he will do it!

    • Seventh day think everyone is going to hell except THEM.
      Carson need to disavow his religion and swear to uphold the Constitution.
      The religion is against alcohol, and cigarettes.
      we can’t have him as president until he disavows the tenants of his Religion!

  32. Governor Jindal said it best: “Trump does not read the Bible because he is not in it”.

  33. Rino’s and democrats hate Mr. trump as he does not bow down and kiss obama’s butt and would kick killery clinton to the curb. ben carson maybe a nice guy, but I would never vote for him for the top job, maybe surgeon general.

  34. I agree but what they really need to do is combine forces as president and vice president 2016…go trump2016 and carson

  35. These two men get along well when left alone by the liars in media. They have mutual respect which is in short supply in media land. For the record, Mr. Trump is leading in all polls. Both men have Christian faith-different denominations.

  36. I cannot help but agree that Trump should “steer clear of religion.” I would like to add, so should everyone else.
