US Speaking With 'One Voice' On North Korea, State Dept Spox Says

Kim Jong-un threatens to nuke Guam

The senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas was a member of Trump's evangelical advisory committee during the 2016 presidential election and since has attended several meetings of prominent evangelicals at the White House, including a dinner ahead of the National Day of Prayer at which he said: 'Mr President, we're going to be your most loyal friends'.

Top military commanders in Seoul have been ordered to speed up preparations to protect South Korea from the nuclear-armed regime of Kim Jong-un today as tensions in the region soar.

Jeffress, who oversees The First Baptist Church in Dallas, told The Washington Post that he felt obligated to release the statement after Trump's warning to North Korea to stop threatening nuclear attacks or face "fire and fury".

"That gives the government to the authority to do whatever, whether it's assassination, capital punishment or evil punishment to quell the actions of evildoers like Kim Jong Un", Jeffress said.

"People instinctively know that this President is not going to draw an imaginary red line and walk around it like President Obama did".

McDaniel said, "I think you just heard from Secretary Tillerson the president is using rhetoric that will get the attention of Kim Jong-un, somebody who is clearly unstable, who is now making nuclear threats, not just against the United States, but against Guam". Jeffress has said he believes God chose Trump for the job, and he has repeatedly invoked religious authority to justify Trump's policies, including the proposed wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

The start of the bible passage reads, "Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities", arguing that government has power because God established it.

Jeffress has been an informal evangelical adviser to the President and was invited to preach to Trump's inauguration to preach earlier this year.

"So, President Trump sounds more like a North Korean leader, unfortunately, than an American leader", she said.

North Korea has revealed plans to fire four missiles at United States territory Guam this month as it gears up for all-out war with the US.

"They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen".

Jeffress is unusual for an evangelical pastor because most pastors do not speak about specific foreign policy issues from the pulpit, except sometimes about Israel, said Amy Black, a political science professor at Wheaton College, an evangelical institution in IL.

"We're in a weird vacuum, we're past the Jim Dobson and Pat Robertson era, but it's not 100 percent clear who will fill their place", Black said.
