Robert Jeffress talks to God

Robert Jeffress talks to God.

At least that’s what one must figure, having seen the cult leader megachurch pastor’s statement on Donald Trump’s moral authority to “take out” North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

To quote Jeffress, Trump’s spiritual adviser (stop laughing) and the senior pastor of First Baptist Dallas: “When it comes to how we should deal with evildoers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil. In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un.”

Sooooo … here’s something that’s been percolating in my brain for the past, oh, yeah, and I truly mean it: Were there ever a chance I’d convert from Judaism to Christianity, it died the moment I saw so many so-called Christians supporting …

Donald Trump: Pussy Grabber.

Donald Trump: Stiffer of Contractors.

Donald Trump: Creator of a Fake University to Bilk People.

Donald Trump: Caller of Death for the Central Park 5.

Donald Trump: Five Year Pursuer of Barack Obama’s Kenyan Muslim Truth.

Donald Trump: Donator of $0.00 to Funds Related to 9.11.

Donald Trump: Liar Who Said He Saw Muslims Celebrating Atop a Roof in New Jersey After 9.11.

Donald Trump: Nonbeliever.

Although I’m a Jew with brown hair, sandals and a goatee, I don’t profess to knowing the Bible well. But here’s what I do know:

Sometimes evildoers are confused for saviors.

And sometimes stupid people fall for it.

    Here. let me help:

    Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” — Jesus, Matthew 7:22, 23.

      It appears Robert Jeffress is unfamiliar with this passage. It’s obvious the pious Donald Trump wouldn’t understand it if it were seared into his retinas.
