pastor has been condemned for invoking the"curse of God" upon the people he believes"stole" the presidential election.Bob Rodgers of the Evangel World Prayer Center in Louisville delivered the prayer during a Sunday church service.
"Father, those that have lied, those that have stolen this election, those that have cheated, I place the curse of God upon them," Rodgers said during the televised service, as reported by WDRB."I curse you with weakness in your body. I curse you with poverty. I curse you with the worst year you've ever had in the name of the Lord."
The service was streamed live to the church's YouTube account and other social media pages, but has been taken down following condemnation from other faith leaders and members of the community."It was pretty disturbing stuff, promoting a narrative that's not true," said Reverend Damian Thompson of Emmanuel Baptist Church."That's false in our country and undermining the overall effects and using Christianity to do that." headtopics.com
Pastor Mario Martin of Praise Nation Contemporary Church said it was unsettling, disrespectful and"downright shameful" to be invoking curses."To spew this kind of hate and evil in the name of God, that's a whole other level of disrespect to Jesus," Martin told WHAS.
Pastor Tim Findley of Kingdom Fellowship also rebuked Rodgers, calling his behavior"foolish" and"dangerous."Rodgers is standing by his words, however, claiming his prayers are intended to heal the nation."This is a prayer not to curse people but to curse the demonic forces that people have allowed to rule them, that would harm a nation," he said."I do pray that trouble will come to them if they don't repent and that they will turn from their wicked ways."
"This is praying for a nation that Satan is trying to destroy," Rodgers told WDRB in a separate interview."And Satan is using people, and God gives us great power and authority, and I'm using that power and authority in Jesus' name."Read more: Newsweek »
NASA Missions Help Investigate an ‘Old Faithful’ Active Galaxy
Yellowstone National Park's Old Faithful geyser regularly blasts a jet of boiling water high in the air. Now, an international team of astronomers has discovered a cosmic equivalent, a distant galaxy that erupts roughly every 114 days.
Sorry but God is gone and has been for some time. He gave us the ability to think and reason, there are times ( such as now) where that fails us. He understood that we would iron out the issues or we'd fail , it's up to us. God , by the way doesn't do house calls or solo work. Congratulations Bob Rodgers! You are this month's winner of the Golden Horse's Ass award!
So he's cursing American voters? This might the funniest headline so far this year. Pasta 😂 There are 20,000 armed military personnel in Washington, DC because of the MAGA Domestic Terrorist Organization. 1 man, 1 party and 1 cable news network caused this. This is embarrassing! I mean if you read what he said he was actually cursing Republicans unintentionally so…
The poor will inherit the earth . Doesn't the rich oppress you. The Lord Jesus Christ words Not the actions or words of a religious or well educated man. He strikes me that he is need of medical intervention, the sooner the better. Even his idol Donald Trump is in the same category. Years ago they would be in a mental institution. 🌐
HawleyMO Your pastor? R's behavior, 'Christians' behavior, and 'God, Guns, Trump' crowd have obliterated any Christian faith I had. I don't want to any part of this. How very Christ like. 🤦♀️ taxthechurches But he’s such a Christian I'll take it I like my chances A lot of pastors said a lot of stupid things, anti-christian things, lies, and most of them are going free and their people will not have them pay anything for their mistakes. This guy calls on the curses of God, the curses of God are not magical, God is not a dummy
Well at least it's only make-believe, nobody gets hurt.
