Trump’s evangelical adviser to Jim Bakker: ‘It’s not Republicans vs Dems — it’s God vs Satan’

Robert Jeffress joined Jim Bakker on his show to regurgitate a narrative they both agree on: that Trump is a soldier of God and Democrats are doing the work of Satan.

Last week, two monumental figures in religious charlatanry got together for a discussion and the result did not disappoint. Megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress appeared with Jim Bakker on The Jim Bakker Show last Wednesday and the message was clear: Republicans are of God, and the Democrats are doing the work of the Devil.

“I want to be very clear,” Jeffress told Bakker. “To me, this is not about partisan politics. People ask me all the time, ‘Why do you as a pastor get involved in something like this?’ — This is not a war between Republicans and Democrats. It’s not even a war between the left and the right — this is a war between good and evil. This is a war between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan.”

As the audience roared in approval, Jeffress went on to say that there was once a time a person could be both a Democrat and Godly, “but what has happened in the last few years is the Democrat Party has become a Godless party.”
