Hubris for Jesus: President Trump’s spiritual adviser, Pastor Paula White, claims the White House is “holy ground” because, according to the Trump-loving televangelist, wherever she stands is “holy.”
Pastor White, preaching at The River Church in Tampa, Florida, last month, declared that God made the White House “holy ground” because wherever she goes, God goes with her.
The arrogant and profoundly deluded White proclaimed:
The church is Christ’s body in which he speaks and acts and by which he fills everything, including the White House, including government halls.
How does he do that? He does that through you. He does that through me. Wherever I go, God rules. When I walk on White House grounds, God walks on White House grounds. When I walked in The River, God walked in The River. When I go in to the dry cleaners, that dry cleaning place becomes holy. I have every right and authority to declare the White House as holy ground because I was standing there and where I stand is holy.
In other words, White believes that everywhere she goes is “holy ground” because God is with her, and she has the power to make the White House “holy ground” simply by her presence.
The stupid, it burns.
Reporting on the story, Raw Story explains some of Pastor White’s unsavory backstory, noting:
Previously Pastor White claimed that Christians will take over the U.S., and that any opposition to Trump is opposition to God.
And last year White made headlines after telling her followers that if they did not give her money they would suffer the “consequences” for failing to obey God’s command.
Pastor White has been a big Trump supporter and his main spiritual adviser from the beginning of Trump’s quest for political power. In fact, she was a featured speaker at the presidential inauguration.
Bottom line: President Trump’s spiritual adviser, Pastor Paula White, claims that the White House is “holy ground” because she has “every right and authority to declare the White House as holy ground” because she was standing there and where she stands is “holy.”
