Dallas Pastor Says Trump Given God's Authority To 'Take Out Kim Jong

U.S. President Donald Trump and Pastor Robert Jeffress participate in the Celebrate Freedom Rally at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

Explain why you say that God has given President Trump the authority to attack North Korea. Jeffress brushed that off to the Post, saying the command applies only to Christian individuals, not governments.

While many Christians reference Romans 12, which says "Do not repay evil for evil", Jeffress says the passage is referring to Christians and not the government.

President Donald Trump and Pastor Robert Jeffress participate in the Celebrate Freedom Rally on July 1 in Washington.

The pastor cited the biblical passage Romans 13 that gives leaders the power to punish evildoers, saying it means Trump has "the authority to do whatever, whether it's assassination, capital punishment or evil punishment to quell the actions of evildoers like Kim Jong Un".

Lam stated "We're thrilled to have an individual of his enormous quality and experience to add to our ranks". The newspaper says Piutau's contract is worth $1.8 million year.

Jeffress, of course, is free to believe what he wants about how to interpret the Bible, other faiths and the people who hold beliefs that differ from his own. "I said absolutely not".

Robert Jeffress, who is one of Trump's top religious aides, said in comments carried by The Hill that Trump was given "full power" to fight evil, including North Korea.

The first step of rebuilding the nation, Jeffress said, was the building of a wall around Jerusalem to protect its citizens.

Jeffress is no stranger to controversy.

Jeffress is also known for previously claiming former President Barack Obama had paved the way for the antichrist. Jeffress knows his comments on North Korea could be considered controversial, even among fellow evangelicals. "Frankly, it's because they are not well taught in the scriptures". As recently as two years ago, Jeffress insisted that Christians in the United States are persecuted in ways comparable to Germany's treatment of Jews before the Holocaust.

I've been with him in a variety of settings, we've talked about a variety of issues. The threats, between the North Korean Army and Trump, came shortly after a report that the regime has produced a compact nuclear warhead that could fit on a missile capable of reaching the United States.

Rather than giving the exclusive to a Nevada-based media outlet, he told Fox & Friends: "We are never going to make America great again unless you have senators in office who fully support president Trump and his America First agenda". He said now that health care is off the table, evangelicals are hoping for tax reform, though he didn't have any specifics in mind.
