This wacky pastor is speaking up once again, but this time not to call Obama the “antichrist”, but instead something quite hypocritical.
Pastor Robert Jeffress spoke up calling for the left to stop demonizing Republicans… Yeah, this is coming from the guy who LITERALLY demonized Pres. Barack Obama.
In his 2014 book, Perfect Ending, Robert Jeffress said, “While I am not suggesting that President Obama is the Antichrist, the fact that he was able to propose such a sweeping change in God’s law and still win reelection by a comfortable margin illustrates how a future world leader will be able to oppose God’s laws without any repercussions.” He also claimed that Obama and LGBT rights would pave the way for the Antichrist. He repeated these phrases often. “I’m not saying President Obama is the Antichrist,” Jeffress said in 2014. “In fact, I’m sure he’s not, because the antichrist is going to have higher poll numbers.”
Now, the pastor who spent most of Obama’s term “not saying President Obama is the Antichrist,” is frustrated with the “demonization” of Trump. Using Wednesday’s shooting at the Republican baseball practice to attack liberals and the media, Jeffress said:
“This appalling act of violence highlights the fact that the unrelenting demonization of our legitimately elected political leaders could lead to tragedy, and I refer particularly to the mainstream media, our universities, and to Hollywood. Now is the time to tone it all down, embrace real tolerance, report objectively, and stop provoking our nation to conflict.”
Jeffress’s concern over America’s godliness, and fear of the Antichrist coming is ironic, if not hypocritical. Jeffress once said that he would vote for Trump over Jesus. “You know, I was debating an evangelical professor on NPR, and this professor said, ‘Pastor, don’t you want a candidate who embodies the teaching of Jesus and would govern this country according to the principles found in the Sermon on the Mount? ” Jeffress recalled. He responded, according to him, “I said, ‘Heck no.’ I would run from that candidate as far as possible, because the Sermon on the Mount was not given as a governing principle for this nation.”
These are the wack-jobs that got Trump elected.
