Jesus Is Magic: Christian TV Host Rick Wiles says if China accepts Christ the coronavirus crisis will end.
Wiles, host of TruNews, a television “news” program produced for conservative Christians, claims that if Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China and the de facto leader of the country, repents and accepts Christ as his savior, and instructs the Chinese people to do the same, the coronavirus crisis will come to an end.
On his TruNews program Wiles declared:
You have a plague, Mr. Xi Jinping. You brought it on China. Now do the right thing and repent, and tell the Chinese people you are sorry, you made a mistake, you repent, and ask them to put up in their homes the painting of Jesus Christ.
Watch what happens if you do it! The plague will stop!
You, Mr. Xi, turn to Jesus. You give your heart to Jesus Christ. You repent of your sins. You believe on His name, and you lead China to the cross. Do it, Mr. Xi. Do it for your people. Don’t be a fool. Lead China to Jesus. Lead them to salvation. The plague will stop.

Previously Wiles claimed that the coronavirus is a plague sent by God to purge the world of sin, declaring that those who mock God “better wise up because there is a Death Angel on the loose right now and you are going to get an attitude adjustment.”
At the time Wiles explained to his viewers that the coronavirus is a plague, noting that “plagues are one of the last steps of judgment” and that “God is about to purge a lot of sin off this planet.”
Speaking to his conservative Christian audience, Wiles said:
Look at China, a godless state, a godless government, a godless communist government that persecutes Christians… the Chinese Communists are not virtuous people they’re godless.
Wiles then continued, arguing that God would soon target the United States:
Look at the United States. Look at the spiritual rebellion that is in this country, the hatred of God, the hatred of the Bible, the hatred of righteousness. Just vile, disgusting people in this country now, transgendering little children, perverting them. Look at the rapes, and the sexual immorality, and the filth on our TVs and our movies.

The stupid, it burns. However, for those who want to dismiss Wiles as a lone lunatic, it is important to note that he is a popular conservative Christian broadcaster with a large audience, and White House press credentials.
In short, Wiles may be a lunatic, but his insanity is shared by many conservative Christians who share his silly belief that Jesus is magic.
Bottom line: Christian TV Host Rick Wiles says if China accepts Christ the coronavirus crisis will end.
