Will Heaven Itself Have A Wall Of Separation?!?!?
Good Thursday morning online congregation, in my opinion this is one of the main reason that racism and hate is alive and flourshing in our world. White evangelicals still pushing separation from the pulpit. God told His people to March around the wall of Jericho 7 times and then shout it down. I don't think God likes walls.
The text Jeffers references in Revelation 21 is a metaphorical description of the church, not an actual walled city. Even if you read it literally, which ignores it's actual meaning, it it stated the gates of the city are never closed. It has a gate not a wall and it opens and lets people in.
The Bible seems clear! We will all live together as a big family. God's family! There will not be any more differences, divisions or "I am better than thou" attitudes, and it sure don't say anything about segregation by way of a wall.
Are racist, xenophobe, Hispanophobe and Nationalist white Evangelicals like Jerry Falwell Jr, Robert Jeffress, Pat Robertson and Paula White misquoting the Bible to justify the building of a wall? It seems so. Racist Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Dallas Church in Texas and a longtime Trump supporter, appeared on “Fox & Friends” Sunday to push back on the argument from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other Democrats that the wall is “immoral.”
“The Bible says even Heaven itself is gonna have a wall around it,” Jeffress said on the show. “Not everybody is going to be allowed in. So if walls are immoral, then God is immoral.”
Yall drop down in my comment section and tell me why, exactly, would Heaven ‘need’ a Wall?
