Robert Jeffress: Thank God for Donald J

Robert Jeffress: Thank God for Donald J

President Trump's daughter, Ivanka, and her husband helped unveil the embassy's seal. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaking at the embassy quoted the Book of Zechariah where God promises to return to Zion and dwell in the midst of Jerusalem.

Trump has been criticized for announcing plans to relocate the embassy and for formally recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital. It has put the U.S.at odds with most of the global community and sparked deadly protests. "We are so proud of President Trump's historic actions today".

The embassy move was "the right thing to do", StandWithUs executive director Michael Dickson said, and Trump's decision "says no to those who would distort history, no to appeasing terror and violence and yes to a peaceful future based on what is true and what is right".

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who is Mormon, expressed his opposition to Jeffress addressing the embassy ceremony.

GJELTEN: Though he was surrounded by Jewish religious leaders, Jeffress closed his prayer invoking his Christian faith.

Romney said, 'Robert Jeffress says "you can't be saved by being a Jew", and "Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell".

Former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney has condemned First Baptist Dallas Pastor Robert Jeffress for his past comments on Jews, Mormons, Muslims, and Hell, arguing that he is a "religious bigot" who should not be delivering a prayer at the new American embassy in Jerusalem.

Visually, the new AMG GT S Roadster gets the signature AMG radiator grille to the long bonnet and the muscular tail end. The 670Nm peak torque also sits between the other two - 10Nm below the GT C but 40Nm above the GT.

"And that is that faith alone in Jesus Christ is the exclusive way to Heaven", Jeffress told Shannon Bream. And the fact that I and tens of millions of evangelical Christians still believe that is not bigoted and it's not newsworthy.

Pastor Hagee is the founder of Christians United for Israel and of the Cornerstone Church here in San Antonio.

The embassy's relocation formally breaks from decades of established American policy and global practice in a move USA officials say will create greater regional stability.

"God says in Jeremiah 16: 'Behold, I will bring them the Jewish people again unto their land that I gave to their fathers".

The outrage over Jeffress comes amidst a backlash against the Trump adminstration's embrace of an Israeli cleric who also made racist remarks about black people.

Jeffress told Todd Starnes of Fox News on Sunday that he was "stunned" by Romney's remarks. "The United States will always be a great friend of Israel and a partner in the cause of freedom and peace".
