Southern Baptist Pastor Calls Cult Member an Intelligent, Committed Christian

This isn’t about politics. In fact, I’m disgustingly tired and bored with politics. At this point, I really couldn’t care any less who wins the upcoming presidential election, because all the candidates are losers.

However, it’s a major problem when a pastor who purports to hold to the orthodox view of the Christian faith continues to show absolute disregard for biblical truth while leading a political crusade in the name of Jesus that calls into question everything the Scriptures teach about Christianity.

Now, we all know how pro-life Donald Trump is. He understands the sanctity of human life–how all human life is created in the image of God, including the unborn. We all know that Donald Trump is a repentant sinner, who understands that the Gospel is the necessary solution to the problem of sin in America today.

Wait, wait, wait!

I think I must have confused him with someone else. No, Donald Trump defends Planned Parenthood, and believes he doesn’t need forgiveness of sin.

Yet, Southern Baptist Pastor, Robert Jeffress, was quick to defend Trump’s Christian pro-life credentials–get this–less than 24 hours after Trump came out in defense of Planned Parenthood.

Lack of discernment much? Remember, this is the same Robert Jeffress who thinks the anti-Christ (pope of Rome) is a “fine Christian man.”

Now, in his latest display of biblical discernment spiritual bewilderment, he proclaims Ben Carson to be an “intelligent, committed Christian.”

I won’t deny that Ben Carson is intelligent. As he’s one of the most accomplished neurosurgeons in the world. But let’s get this straight; Robert Jeffress believes that Ben Carson, a Seventh Day Adventist, a man who believes that Ellen G. White was a great prophetess, is an “intelligent, committed Christian?”

See the video below, and if you need more information on why Seventh Day Adventism is a cult that denies the essential doctrine of salvation, see here.
