Donald Trump: The Early Years
Train up a child in the way he should go,
Trump was baptized and confirmed at the First Presbyterian Church in Jamaica, Queens, in New York City. His parents raised him in the austerities typical of devout low-church Protestants. . .
In his late twenties, Trump began attending Marble Collegiate Church on Fifth Avenue. . .
Here Trump walked down the aisle after exchanging vows with Ivana and heard the sermons of Norman Vincent Peale, a man whose philosophy would become Trump’s own. . .
This would suggest that his parents would take comfort in the Proverb of Solomon, son of David, King of Israel, that he will not depart from the way that he should go when he is old.
This was the comfort my parents had when they sent all their children to our Lutheran School for eight years.
This is also the comfort that I have when I sent my daughters to Lutheran School for their 8 years of primary education.
This may give hope to all who think that they know Trump that after eight years as the world’s most powerful President of any nation that he will return to the way that his parent taught him to go.
And should Marble Collegiate Church not re-accept him, I am sure that The Rev Dr. Matthew C Harrison, President, or any Clergy of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, which is fully packed with sinners, would accept him. But he would have to acknowledge and repent of his sins; and then The Rev Dr. Harrison or any of his fellow clergyman, would be pleased to provide Absolution that he is indeed forgiven.
Remember when Christ was executed, and he never did anything wrong. The murderer on the next cross, asked for forgiveness in the last hour of his life, and Christ gave him absolution that “Today, you shall be with me in Paradise.”
An unbelievable message, that many can’t understand and thus fail to believe; forever by passing Paradise, and thus go down the wide road to Hades.
