1. Deuteronomy 10: 19: You shall also love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Leviticus 19:34: The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt

Romans 12:13: Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers.

Hebrews 13: 1 Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.

2. Is that a serious question?

3. This isn't about Obama.

Whether or not the US is a christian nation, it should reject Trump. Though, to be fair, the US should reject Hillary as well.

Just wanted to add this to your post since voting for "the lesser of two evils" was mentioned

1 Thessalonians 5:22 (KJV) says to "Abstain from all appearance of evil."

So if Trump is supposed to be the lesser of evils, he is still evil. Therefore no Christian should even consider voting for him. As the Bible does state to abstain from all appearance of evil.

Just gonna add this for fun
"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away." (1 Corinthians 13:4-8 ESV). Now let's replace the word love with Trump. Is Trump patient and kind? Does Trump show envy or boast? He Trump arrogant or rude? If Trump doesn't fit any of these. Should Christians really support such a man? Edit: you can actually ignore where it goes into "As for prophecies...." it's not relevant to the point. I've just seen this verse used in helping making decisions on like who one should have a relationship with and thought it would be fun to apply it to Trump

1John 4:18 (KJV)- There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Trump sure uses a lot of Fear tactics.

Luke 6:35 (KJV)- But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

By the Bible Trump isn't looking to good. There you go geauxtigers just a little more to add to your reply. ^^

Have you happened to see the democratic nomination is over and did you notice it was hillary clinton? Or maybe a socialist if lynch can do her job.

I fail to see how trump is anti-christian lol.

Lol. Many popes before francis have called for holy war against muslims and "pagans", I think its a good idea not to listen to everything the vicar of christ says.

1. Deuteronomy 10: 19: You shall also love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Leviticus 19:34: The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt

Romans 12:13: Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers.

Hebrews 13: 1 Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.


1 Corinthians 14:34-35
The women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.

1 Timothy 2:11-15
Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.

1 Peter 3:7-8
Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered. Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.

Leviticus
"If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them."

1 Peter 2:18
Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the unjust.

Galatians 1:8-9
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.

Galatians says that and the old testament is riddled with incredibly wrong ideas

Might I also say that in leviticus it says incredibly horrid things about homosexuals which we all know by now occur naturally in all mammals we have ever seen.
