Pastor Robert Jeffress believes President Trump has the “moral authority” to take out North Korean Dictator Jim Jong Un.
Jefress believes that Romans 13 in the bible gives Trump the right to protect the country from evil:
“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,” Jeffress said. “In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un.”
And he has and answer for pacifist Christians:
He said that many pacifist Christians will cite Romans 12, which says, “Do not repay evil for evil,” but Jeffress says that the passage is referring to Christians, not to the government.
“A Christian writer asked me, ‘Don’t you want the president to embody the Sermon on the Mount?’ ” he said, referring to Jesus’s sermon. “I said absolutely not.”
The first step of rebuilding the nation, Jeffress said, was the building of a wall around Jerusalem to protect its citizens. “You see, God is not against building walls,” Jeffress said in his sermon at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington.
Jeffress has long been a supporter of President Trump. He met him in Iowa and believed Trump would take the White House. His prediction was correct. He met with Trump in July with a group of other pastors. They laid their hands on the president to pray with him.
