American Christians Celebrate Historic Opening of US Embassy in Jerusalem

"Robert Jeffress says 'you can't be saved by being a Jew, ' and 'Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell, '" he tweeted. "The timing could not be more appropriate to open the embassy at the 70th anniversary of the founding of the modern state of Israel".

The Anti-Defamation League said the embassy move acknowledges Jewish ties to the holy city and consecrates American-Israel relations.

"We want to thank God for the tremendous leadership of our great President Donald J. Trump".

When Trump announced his decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem in December, Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Center, said: "America's foreign policy, as it pertains to Israel, is coming into alignment with this biblical truth: Jerusalem is the eternal and indivisible capital of the Jewish state". "Hitler was a hunter". Hagee fired back that people were "grossly misrepresenting" his words.

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who is Mormon, expressed his opposition to Jeffress addressing the embassy ceremony.

Hagee also has said that "to assert that I in any way condone the Holocaust or that monster Adolf Hitler is the biggest and ugliest of lies".

The A319-100 aircraft, with registration B-6419, is less than seven years old and was made in Airbus' Chinese factory in Tianjin. The Captain requested an emergency landing and diverted to Chengdu in southern China where he landed the aircraft safely.

'Historic Christianity has taught for 2,000 years that salvation is through faith in Christ alone.

In multiple clips, Jeffress classified the whole of Islam as a "cult" - a label he likewise applies to Hinduism and Buddhism. "Islam is a false religion and if you follow the tenants of it, you will end up in hell when you die", he said.

"Those comments Mitt used were out of context, they were twisted, some were not accurate at all", Jeffress said, insisting that the fact that he and millions of other evangelicals believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven is "really not newsworthy and it certainly doesn't qualify me as a bigot".

In his ceremonial prayer, Jeffress thanked God "for your providential and powerful protection of this nation from all who would seek to destroy her".

"This is a historic moment because it represents the United States recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, something that the Bible and secular history have told us for 3,000 years", Jeffress said on Fox & Friends.

"One of the men who gave a prayer before the ceremony in Jerusalem today says he believes all Jews are going to hell", Smith, who serves as Fox News's chief news anchor, told his viewers. "While previous presidents have made this a major campaign promise, they failed to deliver".
