When Bill Johnson, senior pastor of Bethel Church in Redding, California, said he was voting for President-Elect Donald Trump in this week's general election, he said a number of people were angry.

"I was told if I voted for Trump I needed to open my Bible to find out why it was morally wrong," he wrote in an op-ed for The Gopsel Herald website. So he did. And then he decided to share what he found.

Point by point, he deconstructed the arguments made by many on the #NeverTrump Right and showed the truth revealed in the Lord's holy Word. In his conclusion, he shared his prayer for the future:

"I believe the outcome is from the Lord. At the same time I realize that many people I care for don't see it that way at all. Regardless, my love for God and people remains the same. And as I did for Clinton, Bush and Obama, I pray for protection for President Trump and his family, that he would have great wisdom for his near impossible assignment, and that he would always listen to godly counsel. I pray that he would increase in favor with God and man. I pray for those who are in despair because of the outcome of this election, that God Himself would give them peace and a hope filled promise. And finally I pray that each of us would have a life of realizing the fulfillment of dreams, with great health and blessing in every area of life."
