“Reverend” Raphael Warnock, the recently-elected Democrat senator from Georgia who leads a “Christian congregation” while still supporting the murder of infants in the womb, lit up Twitter on Easter Sunday with a particularly heretical tweet that declared Easter wasn’t actually about Jesus Christ rising from the dead.
“The meaning of Easter is more transcendent than the Resurrection of Jesus,” the far-left pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church tweeted on the holiest of Christian holidays. “Whether you are Christian or not, through a commitment to helping others we are able to save themselves.”
Naturally, even the fetid cesspool that is Twitter was quick to note that any Christian minister with even a basic familiarity with Scripture would understand that Easter is entirely about the resurrection of Jesus – and literally wouldn’t exist otherwise – and isn’t simply another soapbox to be used by rabid leftists to push a socialist government agenda.
This is a heresy. We cannot save ourselves. https://t.co/KJXvzSqlXA— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) April 4, 2021
This is what the heresy of liberation theology does—reduces the significance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, to self-salvific moralism and thereby making ourselves God. https://t.co/6gShUluWI6— Darrell B. Harrison (@D_B_Harrison) April 4, 2021
No. The resurrection of Christ is the entire meaning of Christianity - without it there is death and the grave for Christ. https://t.co/2vkxMfCiUA— Richard Grenell (@RichardGrenell) April 4, 2021
Even Warnock must have realized there was something fundamentally wrong with his latest hot take, as he quickly deleted the tweet.
Unfortunately for him, the internet is forever – as is Jesus Christ.
