    you'll take that up with GOD our current president Trump was put in office by GOD,so if you want to go against what our father in heaven has done,then by all means try,but it could get ugly for you

    God would not send an adulterer, liar, and perverted person to lead a country of good people and it is shameful for anyone to think the He would. Apparently you fail to remember who it is that rules the Earth until the Second Coming. "Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me." John 14:30

    You would be hard pressed to remember, "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" Isaiah 5:20.

    Dear Anna,

    One cannot be sure God did not send Trump to guide this country at this time ...didn't God send Paul (the persecutor and killer of Christians) to become an apostle and to preach to the Gentiles?

    Jesus speaks about not judging and accusing others. In the example below many wanted to accuse a woman for adultery.

    John 8:7

    "So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her."

    God Bless.

    Christians should always show God's love even if people don't agree with us only God is justified in judging.
  • Angel on Psalms 109:8
    To a believer in God....Even Jesus didn 't go anywhere anytime. He had enough wisdom to know the enemy and protect Himself until He was to lay down His life. Beinging a believer doesn 't make you stupid....necessarily!

    1 Corinthians 6:2
    Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
  • A. morton on Psalms 109:8
    judge not lest you be judged; whatever you soweth you will also reap; let the sins of the father fall on his children. - what has President Obama done that is so evil; has he sent us into a unjustified war that has left over 4000 USA soldiers dead - no, that was our previous president. did you wish this on him. evil stands with evil.
  • Minister Ernest on Psalms 109:8
    For those who are praying that this scripture would pretain to our President, have you taken the time to read the entire scripture. Regardless of what you may think about the man, why would anyone pray this for him and his family. We tend to forget that whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap. Ane we wonder why this country is in the shape that it is. What happened to the Godly principles the bible says we are to live by. God is not Pleased.
  • Sonny on Psalms 109:8
    The verse sure fits our current Commander In Chief!
    Can anyone come up with anymore appropriate verses from the KJV. Just has to be a few more.
