“We live in the most interesting times in human history. These are the days spoken of in Scripture, the days of fulfillment. This is therefore an era of unprecedented spiritual activity on both sides as the conflict races to a head. Those who are in Christ are on the winning side. Part of what must happen during this period of great harvest for the kingdom of God is a massive wealth transfer. It is not going to happen by theft or governmental policy. It is going to happen supernaturally. Those invested in God’s market are going to reap a windfall. Make up your mind now to buy in,” – E.W. Jackson, Republican candidate for Lieutenant Governor in Virginia.

Notice the bald heresy that Jesus favors the rich and the prosperous and that believing in him will make you rich. Whatever else this is, it has nothing to do with Christianity. Notice too the apocalyptic nature of his worldview. Do we want theocratic nuts who believe the end is nigh to be making decisions for the generations to come? And who in the GOP will call out this foul, money-grubbing bigot?
