President Trump, we are the Christians: "Negotiate" for us

President Trump's recent address to Congress was an inspiring and historic moment for America. We will take nothing away from its import and meaning.

We cannot account for hatred of the Democrats, the dishonesty of the media, the vitriol of Hollywood or the mindless disdain of academia's snowflakes and detractors, but we are not deterred.

As Christians we cannot and will not worship man, but we can worship the only God who is the Creator of heaven and earth. Resultantly, we will never be your sycophants, but we will be your supporters.

We will look to your leadership, your willingness to serve, to protect us and our constitution; we have proven our willingness by bringing you into the high office which you now hold.

We are commanded to walk humbly with our God, (Mic 6:8) but that does not mean that we do not take considerable pride in the fact that we were largely responsible for the founding of this great nation. The historical annuls, the trappings and statues and the endless churches that dot our nation prove for all, that America is a Christian bastion and refuge among all nations. We will never be ashamed of this.

We watched as Vice President Pence and Speaker Paul Ryan affectionately giggled during your address to Congress when you once again used the catchword you so often used in your campaign.

The word was "negotiate."

We need you to negotiate for us.

We do not expect you to take a crash course in theology or understand every Biblical principle upon which we stand – that is not your role and we accept that.

As the rightful administrator over the affairs of this nation we do expect you to negotiate with Congress and Senate for the appointment of federal judges who will fully honor our rights under the constitution to practice our religious beliefs.

We do expect you to negotiate for the beleaguered ones like the "Little Sister of the Poor" and Christian Oregonian cake bakers who were forced out of business and fined $135,000 for holding to their God given beliefs. We do believe you have already promised to approach these un-constitutional overreaches and judicial extremes.

We are not tired of telling the LGBT that we love them even though we do not love their sin and perversion. They may be tired of hearing us, but even that gives them no rights by which to repress, strangle and wholly dismiss our rights to these God given beliefs.

Negotiate for us Mr. President.

LGBT excesses are mounting at the speed of social decay and it has become an acidic burning away of the very moral fiber of our nation. We are citizens of this nation we love, but first we are soldiers of the cross and we cannot relent or shrink away any more than the soldiers who wear the uniform of this nation in battle. Under the mandates of our Divine King we cannot take life in our battles, but we can give our own lives as a means of winning the battle against evil.

In your address to Congress you quoted the passage in John's gospel (Jn 15: 30) where Jesus said "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." We will be true to these words in the God given biblically based beliefs that we hold dear – more than our own lives.

Negotiate for us Mr. President.

Finally, we ask for your help to negotiate for a group of Americans who are treated little better than rabid animals – the unborn. An entire generation (60 million) of potentially productive American citizens has been wiped of the face of our landscape without representation and certainly without mercy.

Negotiate for them Mr. President.

They not only have been denied their constitutional rights, but they have been refused the very chance to fulfill the most basic premise under which this country was founded. It is found, as you well know, in our Declaration of Independence and the words are:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

These un-born Americans have been denied life – how could they hope to reach liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

Negotiate for them, Mr. President.
