Watch What I Had to Say on ‘The Jim Bakker Show’ About the Pence-Talking-to-Jesus Controversy

by | Feb 23, 2018 | Blogs, The Strang Report

A week ago, the women on “The View” took potshots at Vice President Mike Pence for saying he talks to Jesus and Jesus talks back. Joy Behar, who claims to be a Christian but seems to know nothing about Christianity, said people who “hear voices” are mentally ill. It went downhill from there.

The next day, I appeared on “The Jim Bakker Show” to talk about my book, God and Donald Trump, as well as Alveda King’s new book, King Truths. We talked about the comments regarding Pence since Jim likes to discuss current events (that discussion begins around the 25:00 mark).

Ridiculing people of faith like Vice President Pence will only further alienate millions of Americans who profess faith in Jesus Christ. When will liberals understand that mocking Christians will further erode their standing with the people of this country? The left media and others want to bring down Christianity, and they continue to attack the No. 2 leader in America and the most important aspect of his life: his faith. This is not a smart move.

As America moves further away from the truth of Scripture and its call for morality and personal responsibility, we see heinous crime, corruption and murder. What should we expect when we do everything possible to remove God and moral authority from our schools and culture?

To make matters worse, the FBI became so intent on bringing down President Trump they neglected to follow up on Nikolas Cruz leads. Seventeen people in Florida died as a result. It is an abomination and there is absolutely no excuse for it.

You can read Charisma News’ coverage on the attack on Pence here and his response. Many have commented on this, but I wanted to join the chorus of those defending Pence and call out the ladies on “The View” for their ideas, which border on heresy.

As always, please share this with your social media followers, and I would like to read what you think about this issue. {eoa}
