It is reported that a truly special guest will be in attendance for Donald Trump’s inauguration.
The guest is Paula White, Senior Pastor of New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida and host of the Christian television program Paula White Today. White also happens to be the spiritual counselor of Donald Trump, a relationship that goes back almost 15 years.
In a July interview with David Brody on CBN’s The Brody File, White spoke about Mr. Trump and his spiritual journey:
“Fourteen years ago approximately, I received a phone call, and they said ‘Mr. Trump is on the line… I get on the phone and he starts to quote back to me three sermons that I preached…. I mean verbatim…He said, ‘It really ministered to me… I loved your preaching’…David, quite honestly, he doesn’t know our Christianese and perhaps our language that we know in the Christian world…The way he discovered Paula White was watching Christian television and Mr. Trump has always been a huge fan. He’d always watch Christian television. He loves Southern Gospel. One of his favorites is the Gaithers. For a birthday or an anniversary or something, I’d send him up Bill Gaither’s tapes, or books or sermons by this person. Because he absolutely enjoys hearing the word.”
“There’s no way in the natural, if we were to use this terminology, that you could take a man against seventeen other candidates that if we look back at the beginning of this, very qualified candidates, and then here he is, the nominee. For me, that has to be providence. That has to be the hand of God, in my opinion.”
The decade and a half friendship and spiritual relationship of Paula White and Donald Trump repudiates all those who have expressed doubt as to the truth of Trump’s claims of being spiritual and a Christian.
Clearly, White knows better than anyone.
What a wonderful addition to the inauguration she will be.
