|Trump and Jeffress|
“Robert Jeffress says ‘you can’t be saved by being a Jew,’ and ‘Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell.’ He’s said the same about Islam,” Romney wrote on Twitter Sunday evening. “Such a religious bigot should not be giving the prayer that opens the United States Embassy in Jerusalem.”
According to the New York Post, Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas and a member of President Trump’s evangelical advisory board, has also called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints a “cult” and said Islam is “based on a false book” and “if you sincerely follow the tenets of Islam, then you will end up in hell when you die.”
During a 2010 segment on his radio show Pathway to Victory, Jeffress had this to say about the Catholic religion:
Much of what you see in the Catholic Church today doesn’t come from God’s word; it comes from that cult-like, pagan religion. Now you say, ‘Pastor, how can you say such a thing? That is such an indictment of the Catholic Church. After all, the Catholic Church talks about God and the Bible and Jesus and the blood of Christ and salvation.’-Robert Wenzel
"Isn’t that the genius of Satan? If you want to counterfeit a dollar bill, you don’t do it with purple paper and red ink. You’re not going to fool anybody with that. But if you want to counterfeit money, what you do is make it look closely related to the real thing as possible.
"And that’s what Satan does with counterfeit religion. He uses, he steals, he appropriates all of the symbols of true biblical Christianity, and he changes it just enough in order to cause people to miss eternal life.
