June 24, 2016: James Dobson on Trump: “I Know the Person Who Led Him to Christ”
Apparently Donald Trump has had a conversion experience and is now a born-again Christian.
Following Trump’s meeting with evangelical leaders, York, Pennsylvania megachurch pastor Michael Anthony interviewed Christian psychologist, culture-warrior and radio-show host James Dobson about Trump.
Listen to the short interview.
A transcript of the pertinent part of an interview titled “Did Trump accept Christ?”:
Dobson: There are a lot of people ministering to him (Trump) personally…He did accept a relationship with Christ. I know the person who led him to Christ. And that’s fairly recent.
Anthony: No kidding. How recent?
Dobson: I don’t know when it was, but it has not been long.
Dobson: I believe he really made a commitment, but he’s a baby Christian.
This is the first I have heard about a Trump conversion. Michael Anthony, who, of course, was also at the meeting on Tuesday, runs an organization called Godfactor. He is the pastor of Grace Fellowship Church in York, Pennsylvania. From what I understand, Grace Fellowship is a pretty mainstream evangelical church.
Long-time Christian Right politico Ralph Reed defended, and even praised Trump on National Public Radio. He supports Trump because the GOP nominee is pro-life, a good businessman, and seems to have been a good father. Michael Anthony claimed that he felt God was speaking through Donald Trump during a meeting.
