Dr. James Dobson Discusses Donald Trump's Christian Faith

Dr. James Dobson is still getting questions about Donald Trump's faith following his statement last month that the Republican presidential nominee had accepted a relationship with Christ.

The claims have since been called into question by many—although most evangelical faith leaders are willing to accept that Trump is at least sympathetic to their issues—which has led to even more questions for the pro-family advocate. So Thursday, he issued the following statement in an effort to answer those questions.

I can only tell you what I've heard. First, Trump appears to be tender to things of the Spirit. I also hear that Paula White has known Trump for years and that she personally led him to Christ. Do I know that for sure? No. Do I know the details of that alleged conversion? I can't say that I do.

But there are many Christian leaders who are serving on a faith advisory committee for Trump in the future. I am among them. There are about 25 of us that include Jerry Falwell, Jr., Robert Jeffress, Jack Graham, Ben Carson, James Robison, Michele Bachmann and many others whom you would probably know. We've all agreed to serve. How will that play out if Trump becomes president? I don't know. It is a good start, I would think.

If anything, this man is a baby Christian who doesn't have a clue about how believers think, talk and act. All I can tell you is that we have only two choices, Hillary or Donald. Hillary scares me to death. And, if Christians stay home because he isn't a better candidate, Hillary will run the world for perhaps eight years. The very thought of that haunts my nights and days. One thing is sure: we need to be in prayer for our nation at this time of crisis."
