Open Letter to Donald Trump


Sermon notes of Pastor Mark Downey

October 9, 2016

Scripture Reading:  Daniel 4:17  This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.

Dear Mr. Trump,

I don't know where to begin, but I need to get your immediate attention. I've noticed there are innumerable “open letters” to you and for the most part they are all hostile and grubbing for their own special interest. This is not a hostile letter, but sent in the love of Jesus Christ. You have announced to the world that you are a Christian and that really doesn't need to be equivocated by denomination. I write to you as a pastor, politically incorrect patriot and presidential advisor in the tradition of colonial election sermons. My interest is the same as yours: to make America great again. This letter may be the most important thing you ever read in your lifetime, if it can pass through the filters of campaign intercessors and reach your eyes only. Actually, if it touches your heart to love the truth of God more than anything else, my one and only goal will be fulfilled.
