The national prayer service is an inauguration tradition that dates back to George Washington, the first U.S. president. Yet, Washington received prayers and readings of the Bible only from Protestant ministers.
While a major Protestant cathedral in Washington, the capital city of the largest Protestant nation in the world, had Islamic leaders officially praying and reading the Koran to Trump, the largest mosque in Mecca, the Islamic world’s capital, considers a sacrilege, worthy of death, for a Protestant minister to pray and read from the Bible for Saudi leaders in its facilities.
Even so, Islamic leaders can use their mosques and language to promote their ideology under the guise of interfaith dialogue, because they are allowed by the Koran to lie to advance their cause. But Christian leaders cannot use their churches and language to imply that religions save or help, because this is a brazen lie. Only Christ saves.
Muslim, Jewish, Sikh, Mormon, Buddhist, Roman Catholic, Baha’i, Hindu and Native American leaders can enter Christian churches to pray for their salvation, but they should never be allowed to take the stand to make official prayers and read from their religious books. Only the Bible should be allowed in a Christian pulpit.
The Washington National Cathedral committed against the Lord Jesus Christ a sacrilege that Mecca would never commit against its false prophet Mohammed.
Mecca would never accept the religious Babylon the Protestant cathedral in Washington has accepted.
Had George Washington envisioned America to become such Babylon? In fact, David Wilkerson had a vision about America as Babylon, and such is the reality indeed.
After a rendition of “How Great Thou Art” Trump led attendees at the cathedral, sitting at the time, in a standing ovation.
Muslim religious leaders also spoke at the service.
Executive Imam Mohamed Magid of the ADAMS Center in Sterling, Virginia led a Muslim call to prayer. Magid was a leader at the Islamic Society of North America from 2010 to 2014.
Todd Christopherson, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles Mormon church delivered a prayer on behalf of the new president.
Donald Cardinal Wuerl, Catholic archbishop of Washington, D.C. said a prayer for the nation at the end of the ceremony.
Trump, a Presbyterian, is not a regular churchgoer. He does not attend weekly services in New York, but every Christmas he attends a church near his estate in Palm Beach, Florida. Trump courted evangelical voters during the presidential campaign and infused his inaugural address with references to God and quoted from the Bible’s book of Psalms during a call for national unity.
The 106-year-old Washington National Cathedral has served as the spiritual center for the U.S. presidents, hosting funerals for Presidents Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford.
In 2013, Rev. Gary Hall, dean of this cathedral, said that Christians should embrace religious “marriage equality,” a euphemism for gay “marriage.”
According to author Scott Lively, the Jewish tradition says that gay “marriage” was the last sin before the Great Flood.
