NEW YORK -- James Dobson, the founder of the renown Colorado-based organization Focus on the Family, asserted this week after gathering with nearly 1,000 evangelical leaders to listen to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump that he believes Trump is a "baby Christian" who needs to be "cut some slack."
Dobson was interviewed by Michael Anthony of GodFactor.com, who likewise attended the event held at the Marriott Marquis in Manhattan. Dobson characterized the gathering as “historic” among Christians, and shared his belief that Trump is himself a Christian.

For many months there has been a lot of speculation over whether or not Donald Trump is an evangelical Christian, as he claims. During a recent interview with Pastor Michael Anthony of GodFactor.com, Dr. James Dobson remarked that Donald Trump “did accept a relationship with Christ” and that he is a “baby Christian.” Moreover, Dobson said that he knows who the person is that led Trump to Christ.
Not surprisingly there was a big brouhaha over Dobson’s comments. Inquiring minds wanted to know who that person was. So to tamp things down a bit Dr. Dobson released the following statement on his website, Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk:
Only the Lord knows the condition of a person’s heart. 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.
Dr. James Dobson
The faith advisory board Dr. Dobson mentioned in his statement includes Southern Baptist leaders such as Ronnie Floyd, Richard Land, Robert Jeffress and David Jeremiah as well as Word of Faith (WoF) and New Apostolic Reformation heretics. (See the full list here.) Not surprisingly, pastrix Paula White is also on Trump’s board.
