I really do not know if President Donald Trump is a follower of Jesus Christ because I never asked him. Prominent faith leader James Dobson called the president “a baby Christian.” Several pastors have agreed that President Trump is a young Christian. We should give some thought to this matter.

Jesus Christ wisely explains how to identify a Christian in Matthew 7: 18, 20, which reads, “A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”

Fruits really points to their behavior and actions. So, what do we know about President Trump and worship? Donald Trump before running for office has been known to attend Joel Osteen and television preacher Dr. David Jeremiah events on his own when they traveled to New York City. People have reported that President Trump will often stop for prayer, or to discuss spiritual matters. At the very least, we can comfortably call President Trump a seeker (a person who intelligently wants to examine Christianity for himself or herself).

Let’s review what Jesus’ brother James says about real Christian living.

He wrote, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world (James 1:27).”
