Does Trump's Name Offend

I've read a few times where many churches have refrained from mentioning the president-elect's name during prayers over fears it might offend some of the church members. Your thoughts?

//Good grief, it was a quote from the Hobbit. Seriously, you need to stop taking yourself so serious and learn to relax...---NurseRoberton 1/31/17

Yes, I realized it because you cited the source.

I thought it was comical and a good clever reply on your part.

I just came one back at you.

But we both know there is always an under current to all our statements.

EVERY MORNING you need to be good. Plus why would I assume you are behaving bad?

//Do you wish me a good morning,//

????

Did I said the word 'wish'?

//or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not,//

If God made the morning good you have to take it whether you want it or not.

//or that you feel good this morning,//

I would say 'I am having a good morning, are you?'

//or that it is a morning to be good on?"//

EVERY MORNING you need to be good. Plus why would I assume you are behaving bad?

That is the Leftists problems.

This isn't hard. Don't complicate it.

//someone ask you if you were a nun,.. Are you?--NurseRobert

I was a Religious (Nun) for 6 years under temporary vows, but due to illness I left before final vows.

I have NOT said 'good morning' when it isn't good.
---Nicole_Lacey on 1/29/17

Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not, or that you feel good this morning, or that it is a morning to be good on?"
Tolkien, 1937

In another blog someone ask you if you were a nun, I missed your answer. Are you?

NSB, KJV, Biblehub and several Protestant Bibles have the word
Babble'

//There's a huge difference between praying and salutations.//

No, you give God saluations FIRST when praying to Him.

//"Father" in the Lord's prayer is a salutation addressing God so he knows you are addressing him.//

No. Father is a Title/ Relations to us and where His Status position.

It's 'Our Father who art in Heaven' NOT 'Our Father, who art in Heaven'.

//ninety five percent of the people say "good morning" out of habit and don't really mean it,.--Steveng

Speak for yourself. May be you don't mean it, but when I speak to anyone I DO MEAN IT!

I have NOT said 'good morning' when it isn't good.

"According to whose translation? Strong's? Englishman's? NASB? Catholic?" Steveng The Englishman's Hebrew and Greek Concordance is simply coded with the numbers from Strong's.
I didn't realize NASB or The Catholic Bibles had a concordance.
Cluny you talk about a source that you seems to think is superior to Strong's, yet I seem to be unable to find it online. I would like to do a comparative study. If you, or anyone else can guide to it, I would appreciate it.

According to whose translation? Strong's? Englishman's? NASB? Catholic?


Nicole wrote: "So I can't say good morning to you everyday as my memorized greeting?"

There's a huge difference between praying (communication with God) and salutations. "Father" in the Lord's prayer is a salutation addressing God so he knows you are addressing him.

Besides, ninety five percent of the people say "good morning" out of habit and don't really mean it.

If churches are afraid people will be offended if they use Trump's name in a prayer they they are afraid for no good reason.

//When you pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.//

The word should be babble because it a better translation.

Matthew 6:7 when you pray,do not babble on like pagans

Babble: talk rapidly and continuously in a foolish, excited, or incomprehensible way:

Note Jesus doesn't just say repetition, but VAIN repetition which changes the repetition part.

//When you memorize words it come from the head. Actual specific prayers come from the heart.---Stevengon

So I can't say good morning to you everyday as my memorized greeting?

I have to find different words to greet you every morning or my greeting isn't from my heart?
---Nicole_Lacey on 1/27/17


Nicole_Lacey wrote "The Bible NEVER states that [about vain repetitions]."

When you pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

When you memorize words it come from the head. Actual specific prayers come from the heart.

//The Lord's prayer and the hail mary prayers.//

I knew you would name those prayers. Matthew 7:1

You may not believe the words, but I DO! EVERY SINGLE WORD.
Hail Mary is connected to mediation on Jesus' life.

//Name the place where you want peace.//

God already knows where.

//The whole world isn't specific.,//

Yes it is! I don't want peace on Mars

Are you saying God will NOT listen to me and grant peace to a family in North Korea?

//He wants you to communicate with him as though you are a close friend.//If I pray for help for a test, I don't have to say a math test.

//Repeating prayers is vain.--Stevengon 1/25/17

The Bible NEVER states that.

Give chapter and verse
---Nicole_Lacey on 1/25/17


Nicole wrote: "What's a vague prayer?"

The Lord's prayer and the hail mary prayers.

Nicole wrote: "If I pray for peace that isn't vague? It is Specfic."

Name the place where you want peace. The whole world isn't specific.

Nicole wrote: "Says who?"

The words of God and the bible. The bible is full of prayers - how to pray and what to pray for.

Nicole wrote: "Are you saying God is so stupid that you have to spell it out to Him?

He wants you to communicate with him as though you are a close friend. Repeating prayers is vain.

I'm thinking Steveng, what are you reading? Who would know about & report such a thing? Sounds to me like it's something made up, i.e., fake news.
---Leon on 1/25/17


"Your thoughts?" I don't think it's his name that offends, It's his perceived character, demeanor, disposition, and attitude.
---josef on 1/24/17


Steveng: I see that you posted this blog on 1/22. By that time, Trump was indeed our President - not the President elect.

As for offending someone, I for one am sick of trying to so rearrange my life so as to not offend someone. I was offended every day by the radical anti-American Obama.

Grow up people, you can never please all the people all the time. PC has got to go. And all the crybaby losers need to face life as adults without needing someone else pat their little heads.

//Prayers are to be specific. One cannot be vague in his or her requests.//

What are you talking about? What's a vague prayer?

If I pray for peace that isn't vague? It is Specfic. I want peace

//pray for a specific sickness, not just say "heal me."--Steveng

Says who?

Are you saying God is so stupid that you have to spell it out to Him?

If you see a doctor with a fractured leg you tell him to please fix it.

You don't have to say:

I want you to reset my leg. Put pins in my bones to help it heal. Order antibiotics so I won't catch an infection. BTW, order pain medicine because this fracture hurts.

Don't you think the doctor already knows those are all implied in the 'fix it'?

Prayers are to be specific. One cannot be vague in his or her requests. It is written to cast ALL our anxieties on Jesus, not lump it in one word. We are to pray about everything, not lump it all in one word. We are to pray for a specific sickness, not just say "heal me." We must pray for the forgiveness of our sins, not "forgive all my sins Lord." We are to pray in time of trouble, not "I'm in trouble, help me."

Every prayer in the bible was for a specific purpose. Elijah prayed for rain, for instance. This is why Jesus gave an example on HOW to pray, not repeat the model prayer in vain like the heathens do.
---Steveng on 1/23/17


That's nonsense. I bet the Pastor doesn't like Trump and is using that excuse in order not to pray for him.

Our Church states every Sunday: Let us pray for our President and other Government Officials....

No need to say Trump. President works just as well.

No matter who is in office we should pray for him or her.

I prayed for Obama for 8 years.

I will continue to pray for him and his family because I am worried about their souls.
---Nicole_Lacey on 1/22/17


Better to pray for some one using one's name. I prayed for Obama and I will pray for Trump.
---mike4879 on 1/22/17


The last president I voted for to win an election was Ronald Reagan. No one I vote for has won since. But I pray for all the presidents and their decisions. If I left this country in disappointment, I would still pray for its presidents.
