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

"When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary - including war - to stop evil", he said in statement.

North Korea and President Trump lashed out at each other within hours on Tuesday, in both cases threatening to hit the other side with a barrage of "fire".

Jeffress' statement August 8 followed the president's warning earlier in the day that North Korea would "be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen" if the North Korean leader continues to threaten the United States. "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", he said. Jeffress brushed that off to the Post, saying the command applies only to Christian individuals, not governments.

One reader told the Echo: "Big explosion at Rosslyn Avenue in Ryhope - a house has been completely levelled to the ground". The emergency services said they were unable to give further details, including whether anyone was trapped in the rubble.

Jeffress added that even though some Christians might cite Romans 12 to point out that the Bible says not to "repay evil for evil", that verse only refers to Christians, not leaders in power, like Trump.

President Donald Trump and Pastor Robert Jeffress participate in the Celebrate Freedom Rally on July 1 in Washington.

He compared Trump to the biblical leader Nehemiah who helped rebuild the city of Jerusalem and erected a wall to protect the citizens.

A controversy soon followed, and much of the country learned of Jeffress' record of over-the-top extremism on issues throughout the so-called "culture war", with the Texas pastor having lashed out at everyone from gays to Mormons to Catholics. "A Christian writer asked me, "Don't you want the president to embody the Sermon on the Mount?'" Jeffress told the Post".

He says President Trump isn't afraid to back away from the imaginary red line drawn in the sand - something he says President Obama did for eight years. White evangelicals gave him 81 percent of their votes in November, a higher percentage than any other religious group.

Steve Herman, White House correspondent for Voice of America, suggested that Trump's global promotion of Fox's journalism could reinforce long-held assumptions in North Korea that the USA government tells the media what to say.
