Why Did Pastor Saeed Abedini Just Cast His Vote for Donald Trump?

News Staff : Nov 2, 2016 : CBN News

"Last year, on the same day, I was sick and in chains for Christ, and now I can vote to choose my next president. And most amazingly, I can vote for someone that I know fought for me and called my name so many times. He met my family and gave them a $10,000 gift. I think his ideas are more Biblical than the other candidates." -Saeed Abedini

Abedini spent more than three years in jail in Iran, before he was released in a deal between the Obama administration and the Iranian government.

"I am finally free in a free country. Last year, on the same day I was sick and in chains for Christ, and now I can vote to choose my next president. And most amazingly, I can vote for someone that I know fought for me and called my name so many times. He met my family and gave them a $10,000 gift. I think his ideas are more Biblical than the other candidates," Abedini wrote.

He also accused Democratic nominee Hilary Clinton of failing to help him at all.

"As a woman who says she stands for women's rights when she was foreign minister, she never contacted my mom, wife, sister or my daughter," Abedini charged. "She never did anything to help when I was in prison as an American pastor who was detained in Iran as a hostage."

Abedini has already cast his vote for Trump in the 2016 presidential election and acknowledged that despite the nominee's controversial past, God still uses flawed men to lead nations.

Abedini also said that those who want to condemn Trump for his past are forgetting that America is a nation that is "saved by grace."

"When we hear that this candidate or that candidate is not a strong Christian or has a past that disqualifies him to be the president of the United States, my answer is that we are a nation, a people who are also sinners, saved by grace," he wrote.

"Instead of worrying about others' spiritual growth, we should humbly come before God in repentance and humility," he continued. "Then we should trust His providence to raise up leaders who honor Him."

"Judging is NOT our business; this is God's business," he admonished. "And, throughout history, even through leaders like Cyrus, God has demonstrated that He always does His business well."
