Trump picks Miami megachurch with pastor who speaks in tongues for evangelicals event
An Apostolic megachurch in a Miami suburb led by a pastor known for speaking in tongues and performing what he says are â€śmiraclesâ€ť will host President Donald Trump next week when the president is expected to issue a full-throated retort to calls from some in the Christian community for his removal from office.
The Trump campaign announced Friday â€” a week after a prominent Christian magazine called for his ousterâ€” that the presidentâ€™s planned Jan. 3 Evangelicals for Trump rollout will take place at King Jesus International Ministry.
The West Kendall church is believed to be one of the largest Hispanic congregations in the country and regularly draws thousands to its dramatic services. Led in English and Spanish by founder Guillermo Maldonado â€” who goes by the title of apostle â€” it is the flagship of a chain of 10 affiliated campuses from Chicago to Homestead and has its own broadcasting network,...
You fellows should be condemning Trump on how he conducted himself at this church. he misrepresented some Democrats' religious beliefs also. I have to say the ABC piece that follows didn't pull too many punches.

While I am still supportive of the action, I'm not very supportive of where it was bragged aboutđź‘Ž Bragging about this action in a church, is hardly Christian. It doesn't make the church look any good either about not complaining about this bragging.

You don't like Trump and that's your right which I respect. What I do NOT respect is using God's written word to condemn Trump while justifying Obama/Hillary.
To make my point..... would you say that both Obama and Hillary, in their current state, are on course to spend eternity in Paradise in the presence of God? If not then you are misusing God's word to justify your own political bias which I doubt God will approve.
It looks like the Democrats to have their work cut out for them in reaching the Latinos in Florida.
"To be sure, some of the Democratic presidential candidates advocate sweeping new programs to expand the federal government's role in health care, and at least two top-tier candidates â€” Sanders and Elizabeth Warren â€” have directly put the ultra-rich on notice over wealth taxes to combat income inequality.
"But none are proposing the socialism of Latin American countries where authoritarian governments have seized banks and nationalized major industries."

I am not answering for Carl as I'm sure he can answer better than I but.....
Did Jesus call out Caesar for his ungodly behavior or did he say render to Caesar that which belongs to him?
The only difference between Obama and Trump is one is better at hiding his dirty laundry. Neither, in their current unrepentant state, will see the kingdom of God.

Well, before Christmas he visited the folk in Broward County, which did draw a lot of Hispanics from Miami-Dade County. If you know Spanish, you can listen online to the local radio at 'lapoderosa.com' where they regularly air talk programs that take many more calls than anyone like Rush or Sean, and most of those callers are conservatives. A friend tells me there is a loyal group of Hispanics that gather every Saturday to show support for President Trump at a large county park not too far from Maldonado's church. On this morning's talk show (8am to 10am), they were explaining that this Jan 3 event is not open to the general public like the Broward event was; it is limited to the members of that church. So, if your first name starts with J and ends with 'im,' don't plan on making any flights from Nebraska to MIA to attend this event, no matter how much you want to stand outside and carry a protest sign. But, on the other hand, you are welcome to visit the local parks and chat with those supporters in the park next Saturday. In the meantime, brush up on your Spanish and get online to listen to that radio station. They even have a camera in the studio so you can watch the people (which seem to be all AARP members, if not members of the RMD generation)

Pentecostals are defined more by what they do than by what they believe (of course their practices spring from their beliefs). Pentecostals believe in exorcism, speaking in tongues, faith healing, and a few (about 2,500) in snake handling, and in general, they seek supernatural experiences....
The article that SA picked should give anyone doubts if this group is part of valid Christianity
"Two wrongs make a right," Timothy? After reading the SA article, the Republican certainly are working hard to beat out Democrats at getting support strange religious groupsâť—
Why, how shameful, Jiminy! We know that no Democrats would EVER try to get votes from non-Christians. In fact, I heard the Dems will take the Lordâ€™s Supper together to kick off the next convention. Such staunch supporters of all things Christian!
