Beck has got the ire up of evangelicals with his comment, “All throughout the South, the Evangelicals are not listening to their God,” he said. His comments were made to mostly Mormons at the Cruz rally in Utah, where he went full blown Mormon theology, applying the White Horse Prophecy to Cruz.
Beck has called out, chastised Christians, for not supporting Ted Cruz. He told the Utah audience reports Truth and Action.
“There are many people of many faiths – good friends of mine — that are standing with the Constitution. But there are also many Christians who are failing in their duty.”
“This is the role you play. I testify to you right now. The role you play – you are fulfilling the prophecy of George Washington when he stood at the Constitutional Convention at that Philadelphia moment and he said, ‘Let’s raise a standard to which the wise and the honest will run to.’ That is you. That is your responsibility. Vote for Mike Lee and Ted Cruz. God bless you.”
Many Evangelicals are now speaking out against Beck's controversial comments. Texas Baptist pastor, Jeffress made this point:
“However, by using the phrase ‘their God’ to refer to the God we evangelical Christians worship, Beck is finally admitting that the true God of the Bible is different than the god of the Book of Mormon. I congratulate Beck for his honesty in differentiating between the two,” Jeffress adds.
Another Texan spoke out against Beck's rant against Evangelical
“Assuming that Mr. Beck is referring to evangelicals who vote for Trump, I would make a distinction that Beck does not: The Bible certainly offers principles on how to think about government and politics. The Bible does not, however, tell us which individual candidates to vote for,” Dr. Thomas S. Kidd, Distinguished Professor of History and Associate Director of the Institute for Studies of Religion at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, tells Breitbart News.
Though Beck may claim he wants a united conservative front, his comments have done nothing but create a greater rift in the GOP.
