Dr. James Dobson: Donald Trump has Accepted Christ, But He’s a Baby Christian
Dr. James Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family and an American evangelical leader, spoke with The Gofactor this week after meeting the Donald Trump in New York City with 900 national evangelical and Christian leaders.
Dr. Dobson told Michael Anthony that Donald Trump has accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.
Charisma News reported:
Dr. James Dobson, who was among the more than 900 evangelical faith leaders who met with the Republican presidential nominee-in-waiting in New York City, says it happened fairly recently. He also said he knew who led the businessman to Christ.
“I don’t know when it was, but it has not been long,” Dobson told Godfactor’s Michael Anthony in an exclusive interview. “I believe he really made a commitment, but he’s a baby Christian. We all need to be praying for him, especially if there’s a possibility of him being our next chief executive officer.”
“I think that he’s open,” he added. “He doesn’t know our language, he really doesn’t, and he refers a lot to religion and not much to faith and belief.”
To that, Anthony responded, “I imagine Saul, when he became Paul, didn’t know the language, either.”
“Yeah, well you’ve got to cut him some slack. He didn’t grow up like we did,” Dobson responded. “I think there’s hope for him, and I think there’s hope for us. I have great concerns about the next election.”
Dobson said he was in the “small group” of 40 faith leaders who met with Trump earlier in the day at Trump Tower, and that he had a chance to interact directly with the Republican presidential nominee-in-waiting.
“He’s a lot nicer guy than you [think],” he said. “I think he is listening. There were a lot of people ministering to him personally.”
Dobson also praised the event, during which he said faith leaders were “genuinely seeking the Lord’s direction” in the things Trump was saying.
