Statement on U.S. Presidency from Members of the Faculty | Princeton Theological Seminary

On the Trump Presidency: From Members of the Princeton Seminary Faculty February 24, 2017(signers to this statement do not represent the Seminary or the faculty as a whole) We, the undersigned, believe that because God is sovereign over all creation and because all human beings are embraced by God’s all-encompassing grace, the god of Donald Trump’s “America first” nationalism is not the God revealed in our scriptures. Regardless of our specific political persuasions we agree that the attitudes fostered by this nationalism are inconsistent with Christian values of welcoming the stranger as if we were welcoming Christ, of seeking to distinguish truth from deception and conceit, and of believing that no institution or government can demand the kind of loyalty that belongs only to God.
