The Christian Sins of 1/6

False Prophecy

Another prophet Dyrud follows has assured him that “Trump is still our president” and is facing a moment much like when Moses and the Israelites fled Egypt and were not able to cross the Red Sea until God parted the waters for them. God will do something miraculous for Trump, too, Dyrud believes.

“I believe something dramatic is going to happen before Congress votes on those electors. Something very dramatic that will change the outcome of that vote … the holy spirit will enter into this situation and it’s going to be something very dramatic,” televangelist Pat Robertson told his Christian Broadcasting Network audience Jan. 4, on the eve of two days of rallies in Washington.

“Others have dug in and prophesied a return of Trump to the White House,” said Beverley, who is affiliated with the Institute for the Study of American Religion in Texas and Tyndale University in Toronto.

“If a prophet or someone who has dreams arises among you and proclaims a sign or wonder to you, and that sign or wonder he has promised you comes about, but he says, ‘Let us follow other gods,’ which you have not known, ‘and let us worship them,’ do not listen to that prophet’s words or to that dreamer. For the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul. You must follow the Lord your God and fear Him. You must keep His commands and listen to His voice; you must worship Him and remain faithful to Him. That prophet or dreamer must be put to death, because he has urged rebellion against the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the place of slavery, to turn you from the way the Lord your God has commanded you to walk. You must purge the evil from you.

Syncretism

Kelly would later praise the moment Chansley “consecrated (the Senate) to Jesus” in an interview with conservative website LifeSiteNews the day of the insurrection. He called the prayer the “ultimate statement of where we are at with this movement.”

Cult Participation

Christians should care about QAnon because it’s a satanic movement infiltrating our churches.

A False Gospel

The blood of Christ was also important to another insurrectionist: Joshua Black of Leeds, Alabama, who can be seen standing directly in front of Chansley during the prayer wearing a camouflage jacket, his hands raised in supplication. Before he turned himself in to the FBI in the days after the insurrection, Black posted a pair of YouTube videos in which he explained his rationale for storming the Capitol.

“I just wanted to get inside the building so I could plead the blood of Jesus over it,” he said. “That was my goal.”

Just as God instructed Joshua to march around Jericho seven times with priests blowing trumpets, Christians gathered in D.C., blowing shofars, the ram’s horn typically used in Jewish worship, to banish the “darkness of election fraud” and ensure that “the walls of corruption crumble.”
