A theological who’s who of Leftist Christian leaders are organizing a march on the White House to ‘Reclaim Jesus’ from President Donald Trump that is set for the evening of May 24. One of the leaders of the anti-Trump march is Rev. Michael Bruce Curry who ‘stole the show‘ with his lengthy sermon at the British royal wedding on Saturday between Prince Harry and American Meghan Markle. Three march organizers were spiritual advisors to President Barack Obama while one counseled President Bill Clinton during the Lewinsky scandal and later endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in 2016.
"THEREFORE, WE REJECT the language and policies of political leaders who would debase and abandon the most vulnerable children of God. We strongly deplore the growing attacks on immigrants and refugees, who are being made into cultural and political targets, and we need to remind our churches that God makes the treatment of the 'strangers' among us a test of faith (Leviticus 19:33-34)."
Christian apologist Alex McFarland of Truth for a New Generation says nothing in scripture demands open borders and unsafe communities.
"I pray that people will not be misled by the religious lingo sprinkled throughout this document and [by] the either accidentally or intentionally crafted logical fallacies that permeate this very unsettling tome called Reclaiming Jesus," he tells OneNewsNow.
Statement Six of the document says the authors believe in the Great Commission found in Matthew 28 – and the subsequent "therefore" statement describes the "America First" philosophy as "a theological heresy for followers of Christ."
Dr. Robert Jeffress, senior past of First Baptist-Dallas, contends that signers like Campolo and Wallis make Karl Marx himself look like a conservative. "I think as you lift the veil, what this really is is one more attempt by the Never-Trump Christians to try to diminish or take away the very positive things that are going on," he tells OneNewsNow.
Jeffress, one of President Trump's evangelical advisors, argues that the self-described objectiveof "Reclaiming Jesus" – i.e., trying to lure evangelicals away from their support for the president – likely won't come to pass. "These Never-Trumpers have very little influence over evangelicals as a whole, as seen by the president's continued high approval ratings," he notes.
