This week, Pres. Trump asked dozens of pastors and Christian leaders to attend a meeting at the White House, where he reportedly told them that “violence” could result if Republicans lost seats in the November elections.
But, reports from the meeting also contain another strange detail: At least 100 of the leaders signed a Bible for Pres. Trump that contained this inscription: “First Lady and President, you are in our prayers always. Thank you for your courageous and bold stand for religious liberty, and for your timeless service to all Americans. We appreciate the price that you have paid to walk in the high calling. History will record the greatness that you have brought for generations.”
New Destiny Christian Center and chair of Trump’s Evangelical Advisory Board, Paula White then reportedly read it and said, “We pray this prayer. If you all agree with that, say ‘Amen,’”
However, not everyone in the meeting said that they were asked to sign it. SBC President J.D. Greear said, “I did not sign the Bible – I was not asked and was not aware it was being given.”
