During his recent interview with gospel singer Erica Campbell on her “Get Up!” morning show, pastor Donnie McClurkin insists that Christians should basically ‘practice what they preach.’
He wants them to get out of the streets protesting and instead, go into the pulpits and pray for President Donald Trump and his recent decisions.
According to Pastor McClurkin:
“We need to know what our vote really means and how to utilize it. But I don’t want us to get caught up in the protest. The protests do nothing but rile people up. It causes people’s anger to rise up and it gives is a false sense of involvement. When the true sense of involvement is at the voting booth.”
Erica chimed in on the topic stating that she didn’t agree entirely with Pastor McClurkin. Instead she insists that the protests are not meaningless. They are a major tool now being used to help raise awareness, which in return seems to be making the right people pay attention. We Agree!
Pastor McClurkin goes on to say:
“Now is our time to pray for him. This is the job of the church. Let the world protest but the job of the church now is to go into prayer and pray that, number one, he succeeds, because if he fails, we have to deal with the consequences as a nation. America is in a place that it has never been before and the Christian has got to be who God has called us to be. “
Let us know your thoughts.
Should Christians take their issues with President Trump to the pulpit as opposed to protesting like the rest of the world?
