Despite all the prayers and blessings given in the speeches, all the hosannas and hallelujahs echoing from the delegates, and all the faith-based planks aimed against abortion and same-sex marriage in the Republican platform, not everyone on the Religious Right saw the recent GOP convention in Tampa as a good or righteous thing. Some even detected the sulferous odor of brimstone mingling with all the cigar smoke. Among these is the Reverend Bill Keller, a man who bills himself as the world’s leading Internet Evangelist. Founder of LivePrayer.com, a devotional website with over 2.4 million subscribers where you can get personal responses to email prayer requests (credit cards accepted) and a number of others like Gold For Souls and Vote For Jesus.
In an August 31 press release to Christian News Wire, Keller makes the claim that “Republicans Pray to Satan at the GOP Convention as Romney and His Surrogates Lie to Make Mainstream the Mormon Cult.”
Yup, a vote for Romney is a vote for Satan because, according to Keller, Mormons aren’t Christians and are actually working for the opposition:
“Those in the Mormon cult use the words ‘god’ and ‘jesus,’ yet the ‘god’ and ‘jesus’ of the Mormon cult are NOT the God and Jesus of the Bible! Mormons believe their ‘god’ used to be a human who rose to god-like status, just like Romney, Beck, and all Mormons believe they will too after their death. The ‘jesus’ of the Mormon cult is the natural offspring of their ‘god’ Elohim who had sex with Mary, meaning their jesus is a created being and NOT a deity as the Bible teaches, and is also the brother of Lucifer!”
With Mitt Romney a member of a “satanic cult” and President Obama “anti-god” (in his opinion), there was only one course open to the Reverend Keller; he must find a godly alternative to both candidates… and thus the Vote For Jesus website was created.
“It is time for Christians, true followers of Jesus Christ, to rise up and say NO to satan this November! As I prophetically shared last November, if God allowed the upcoming election for President to be between President Obama and Mitt Romney, it would truly be satan flipping a two-headed coin with his head on both sides!”
Instead, Keller urges Christians to pledge to vote for Jesus for president in November. When I first wrote about the site in July, it was already claiming more than 200,000 such commitments. At the time of this writing (Sept. 2), that number has risen to more than 370,000. If the number keeps rising and if those who sign up actually act on their pledges, it could have a significant effect on the outcome of the election…
And wouldn’t that be divine?
