The war of words between America and North Korea has reached a climax, and Trump’s top Christian adviser says God has given the president authority to take things to the next level.
Following a new round of sanctions on North Korea, the hermit regime again issued a threat of war against the United States.
Trump responded by stating that any additional threats from Pyongyang would be “met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
Pastor Robert Jeffress of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, who is one of Trump’s top Evangelical Christian advisers, explained in a statement that the president has divine authority to wage war against North Korea:
“When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil.
“In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un. I’m heartened to see that our president — contrary to what we’ve seen with past administrations who have taken, at best, a sheepish stance toward dictators and oppressors — will not tolerate any threat against the American people.
“When President Trump draws a red line, he will not erase it, move it, or back away from it. Thank God for a President who is serious about protecting our country.“
