Have you ever noticed how quickly people of the Christian faith will cite verses of scripture as if they are the deep-rooted basis of their belief?
Take Romans 10:10, for example: “For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”
Or John 3:16, for that matter: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
Or how about John 14:6?: “Jesus answered ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'”
Pretty basic, foundational Christian stuff there, right?
Well, not according to “Reverend” Jesse Jackson, who, at “The One Thousand Ministers For Justice” protest march in Washington DC on Monday, proclaimed the following: “Trump says you must be able to speak the language of English, [be] qualified, and have a job skill. Jesus would not qualify to come in Trump’s country—he would not qualify to get into Jesus’ kingdom.”
Hear his words for yourself:
Hmmm. Did English even exist for Jesus to have spoken it? Wasn’t Jesus a carpenter? Nevertheless, I digress, as this simply sounds like another case of a “reverend” picking and choosing which scriptures to believe and which to ignore.
Of course this is what he’s saying now, because it fits the liberal narrative. But, oh my, what a contrast from what Jackson was saying in the 90’s, when had nothing but praise for Donald Trump!
Awfully convenient that he’s changed his tune now, huh?
Come on, Reverend. You’re better than that!
