Fear and loathing in Jesus Land: Televangelists warn Christians that they must pray for Trump because if Democrats win they will take make the Bible illegal.
Right Wing Watch reports that on a recent episode of The Jim Bakker Show, Cindy and Mike Jacobs of Generals International Ministry joined Jim and Lori Bakker for a discussion on the importance of “praying for God’s protection” over President Trump and his administration.
During the conversation the televangelists agreed that Christians must pray for Trump to win in 2020 because if he doesn’t Democrats will outlaw the Bible.
The following is a partial transcript of the conversation via Right Wing Watch:
Cindy Jacobs said:
I pray every day for them. The Bible commands us to do that. I pray that God will give him wisdom … I pray for his protection. I pray for peace for him. I pray that God will give his mind peace.
Lori Bakker responded:
It’s supernatural, what he is taking. It really is. How he is standing and how he just keeps railing back. It is incredible.
Mike Jacobs interjected:
He listens to godly counsel.He far surpasses most [previous Republican presidents] in terms of the godly counsel he has around him, that he listens to … Who ever would have thought that we would have a president who so surrounds himself with godly counsel? There is a blessing that comes from that.
Cindy Jacobs replied:
We’re seeing him become more and more godly. We’re seeing him want to put Bible reading back in school. Come on. Bible reading back in school and prayer?
And Jim Bakker ominously added:
All the things that have been stolen from the church, he’s wanting to restore. He’s wanting to restore the dignity and power to the church and not take the Bible away. We’re so close—they don’t get this—but we’re so close to the Bible being illegal.
It’s all ignorant and obnoxious, but what would you expect from the leaders of Jesus Land?
Bottom line: Televangelists warn Christians that they must pray for Trump because “We’re so Close to the Bible being illegal.”
