Christians Are Furious At What Rev. Jesse Jackson Just Said About President Trump

Rev. Jesse Jackson said during a “Ministers March for Justice” event last week that President Trump “would not qualify to get into Jesus’ kingdom,” according to Washington Free Beacon.

The event where Jackson made his remarks was spearheaded by Rev. Al Sharpton and other ministers in opposition with the Trump administration.

Check it out:

“Trump says you must be able to speak the language of English, [be] qualified, and have a job skill,” Jackson said Monday. “Jesus would not qualify to come in Trump’s country—he would not qualify to get into Jesus’ kingdom.”

Jackson then cited a passage from the Bible:

“I was hungry, you fed me; naked, you clothed me; captive, you set me free,” Jackson said, quoting Christ.

In the passage, Jesus explains his words mean that his true followers will help those in need and ultimately survive judgment. Jesus’ words declare that feeding and clothing “the least of these my brothers” constitutes feeding Christ himself.

Jackson was referring to the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act, which uses a points system to decide who may enter the country. English proficiency and work qualifications are some of the criteria on which potential immigrants would be judged.
