Trump's Anti-Semitic Faith Adviser To Speak At US Embassy Opening In Jerusalem

Speaking on Fox News Radio, Jeffress said he had a specific plan for his prayer at the new embassy.

The U.S. delegation in Jerusalem on Monday to celebrate the opening of the new American embassy includes an evangelical Christian pastor who once said Jews "can't be saved".

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who now is running for the Senate in Utah, said in a tweet Sunday evening that "Robert Jeffress says 'you can't be saved by being a Jew, ' and 'Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell.' He's said the same about Islam".

Jeffress has a history of attacking Mitt Romney. "The fact that I, along with tens of millions of evangelical Christians around the world, continue to espouse that belief, is neither bigoted nor newsworthy".

"Historic Christianity has taught for 2,000 years that salvation is through faith in Christ alone". The message was clear but Hagee said his position was misrepresented and "the ugliest of lies". "Not only do religions like Mormonism, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism - not only do they lead people away from God, they lead people to an eternity of separation from God in Hell".

While a coalition of Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant churches praised the Obama administration decision, many conservative evangelicals opposed it.

Jeffress spoke out about Mormonism in the early stages of the 2012 Republican Presidential primaries. He said at the time, "The idea that Mormonism is a theological cult is not news either". Jeffress said the Bible declares that "God will judge any nation that divides the land that God gave to Israel".

"That is why this debate is so insidious about all of this. People may disagree with that view, but it's not a view unique to me", he told NBC. Jeffress, among the Religious Right leaders who lobbied hard for Trump to fulfill his campaign pledge to move the embassy, gushed that Trump is "the most faith-friendly president we've ever had".

CP has reached out to Jeffress for further comment and will update the article if a response is received.
