In November of 2016, using the constitutional means available to them, the American people elected Donald Trump to be their president. He was the first non-politician to be elected president since the 1950’s. His style and agenda have been dramatically different than any president of our lifetime. His administration attracts comment from all circles of American life. The Unregistered Baptist Fellowship, pastors, evangelists and missionaries wish to offer the following resolution on his presidency.
Whereas, President Trump has resisted incredible pressure and criticism from the news media, the opposition party, and even his own party to be politically correct;
whereas, President Trump has consistently appointed federal judges who are conservative and constitutionalists;
whereas, President Trump has consistently honored our flag, national anthem, and patriotism;
whereas President Trump has taken important steps in expanding religious liberty:
whereas President Trump has as president has continued his public support for the Second Amendment;
whereas President Trump has ended the use of foreign aid dollars to fund abortions in other countries,
whereas President Trump has led the way in the formation of a coalition to destroy the ISIS Caliphate and done so without occupying a nation or engaging in nation building;
whereas President Trump has restored our favorable relations with the nation of Israel;
whereas President Trump has restored our favorable relations with our historical friend England;
whereas President Trump has sought diligently to rebuild our border security:
whereas President Trump has ordered the removal of thousands of unnecessary and burdensome regulations on American business (resulting in spectacular economic growth);
whereas President Trump has created a favorable atmosphere for business, resulting in a flood of people returning to the job market;
whereas President Trump has promoted the most massive tax cuts and economy boosting tax reform in American history:
whereas President Trump has refused to give in to the politically correct pressure to endorse the myth of global warming;
whereas President Trump is seeking to replace trade deals that are unfair to the American worker with fair trade deals;
whereas President Trump has consistently spoken favorably of evangelicals (in contrast to the harsh criticism evangelicals normally receive from politicians);
we commend President Trump for these and other positive steps taken for the good of the American people and the progress of our nation. We commit ourselves to obedience to the commands of I Timothy 2:1-4
1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
and regular prayer for our president. We pledge to support him every time that he takes steps that are positive for the American people and to carefully resist believing any of the false allegations made against him by news media and political opponents.
