Filmmaker says Mitt Romney Unjustly Labeled Robert Jeffress a Bigot

Los Angeles, CA. Best-selling author and Christian filmmaker Ray Comfort says that Mitt Romney, who is Mormon, was sadly mistaken when he recently tweeted:

“Robert Jeffress says ‘you can’t be saved by being a Jew,’ and ‘Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell.’ He’s said the same thing about Islam. Such a religious bigot should not be giving the prayer that opens United States Embassy in Jerusalem.”

“If Mitt Romney knew the Scriptures, he would know that no one is saved by being a Jew. God saves by grace, not by race.”

Comfort said that tweets such as this can only cause more division in our government, and potentially cause division between Israel and the United States.

He said, “If Mitt Romney knew the Scriptures, he would know that no one is saved by being a Jew. God saves by grace, not by race. I’m a Jew and trust alone in His grace. If Romney knew the Scriptures, he would know that the Jesus revealed in the Bible is not the brother of Lucifer, that God doesn’t live on a distant planet with multiple wives, and that we are not all going to eventually become gods. These are just some of the beliefs of the Mormon church—not doctrines that are found anywhere in the Bible.”

“The biblical gospel is good news for Jews, Mormons, atheists, Muslims, Hindus, agnostics, etc.—whosoever will may come. Christianity is not bigotry. It’s just the opposite.”

Comfort is respectfully asking Mitt Romney to watch a short video of a civil discourse between himself and a very likable Mormon, that Comfort had this past Saturday at Huntington Beach, California: https://youtu.be/psbxEU43wKc

“The God of the Jews provided one Jewish Savior who went first to the Jews, then the offer of eternal life went universal—to the Jews and to Gentiles. The biblical gospel is good news for Jews, Mormons, atheists, Muslims, Hindus, agnostics, etc.—‘whosoever will may come.’ Christianity is not bigotry. It’s just the opposite.”
