Lies from the Pit of Hell: The Dangerous Theology of Rev. Jeffress

From Red Letter Christians-

Any preacher who sanctions the use of nuclear weapons is from the pit of hell.

This isn’t a time to be subtle about it. Saying that God has empowered a national leader to use weapons of mass destruction to kill enemies — and many others who would likewise die — for any cause is evidence that the minister is taking his guidance from a very dark source. Nothing of the light of Christ is in the words of one who would say, “God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil.” Yes, I’m naming Rev. Robert Jeffress.

His claim is the polar opposite of the words of the apostle Paul who echoed Jesus when he wrote, “Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all” (Romans 12:17). No, “whatever means possible” is not what God permits. That is what hell permits. “Whatever means possible” is what levels entire cities, annihilates civilizations, burns the flesh off children. “Whatever means possible” is not the way to defeat evil; it is the very nature of evil itself.
