Pastor Raphael Warnock is facing off against Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler in one of Georgia’s January runoff elections.

The Peach State’s two U.S. Senate elections will decide the balance of power in the Legislative Branch’s upper chamber, and the distinction between the candidates couldn’t be more apparent. Yet somehow, newly unearthed reports prove Warnock is even more extreme than we realized.

Footage from 2011 shows Warnock proclaiming, “You can’t serve God and money. You cannot serve God and mammon at the same time. America, choose ye this day who you will serve. Choose ye this day:”

RedState reports how more than a few Christians were eager to respond:

According to the Daily Wire, Warnock’s campaign swooped in for damage control and said that Warnock was referencing a Bible verse about serving two masters.

“This sermon is based on a biblical verse that reads ‘No man can serve two masters… Ye cannot serve God and mammon,’ a biblical term for wealth,” Terrence Clark, communications director for the Warnock campaign, told Fox News. “Reverend Warnock was speaking about the need to commit to moral life before pursuing other priorities. As the video of the congregation’s response makes clear, this is another blatant effort by Kelly Loeffler to take Reverend Warnock’s words completely out of context. Given her own decision to spend her first days in the U.S. Senate profiting off the pandemic, perhaps she should watch the sermon more closely.”

As usual, the left has only focused on one aspect of a verse in order to mold it to their world view. However, as the Daily Wire pointed out, the National Review’s Dan McLaughlin corrected the assumption by posting another Bible verse that shows what the Bible says about military service.

Other Twitter users acquainted with the Bible weighed in.

This guy is another reason not to vote for a Democrat. He supports those that believe White people are all evil and should be eliminated. Don’t understand how Georgians would even consider him since I once lived there and know they have better values than he does.

The black fellow escaped from the crazy house. No wonder the Marxists love him.

If he did, he would not accept the definition. By REDEFINING words they make up their own theology. And that is why I can say that GOD HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM, until he comes to judgement.
