If I were in David Platt’s position, I probably wouldn’t have paraded Donald Trump on stage in front of my congregation. That’s just my opinion. I support Donald Trump as our nation’s leader and I am in far more agreement with many of his policies than any other president of my adult life. That being said, I don’t believe a president belongs on the stage during a Sunday morning worship service as, regardless of your political views, it will inevitably be a distraction.

That being said, that is only my opinion and I don’t necessarily think it is wrong — or sinful by any means — to have done so. Platt was caught off guard and had to make a quick decision. Who knows exactly what went into that decision-making process in such a short amount of time. But that doesn’t stop the social justice warriors from getting their panties all in a wad over the whole act of prayer and supplication for Donald Trump. So many of them are mad because, they say, having Trump up there represented a lack of concern for all the “hurt” and “pain” that blacks have had to endure under his presidency.


Anyways, some mainstream outlets are reporting that David Platt apologized for Praying for Donald Trump. After a lot of backlash, Platt posted on his church’s website a letter to his congregation explaining his reasoning for praying for Donald Trump. In the letter, he explains,

Based on this text [1 Timothy 2:1-6], I know that it is good, and pleasing in the sight of God, to pray for the president. So in that moment, I decided to take this unique opportunity for us as a church to pray over him together. My aim was in no way to endorse the president, his policies, or his party, but to obey God’s command to pray for our president and other leaders to govern in the way this passage portrays.

Yet, the media, including the Washington Times and Politico (who has subsequently renamed the article and removed the offending line criticism). The Washington Times writes,

The pastor of a Northern Virginia church has acknowledged hurting some in his congregation by praying for President Trump when the president made an unscheduled stop at his church on Sunday.

Acknowledging that people are “hurt” is not a validation of their pain nor in any way was this an apology to them for it. Platt did — for the most part — what any Christian pastor should have done. Prayed for the leader of our nation. We are commanded to do so in Scripture. David Platt did not apologize, he merely acknowledged that some were hurt, then proceeded to explain to them that their pain was unnecessary based on what he did.
