Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress, a Fox News contributor, said on Sunday that Christian followers of Donald Trump tend to have "deeper convictions" than other believers. Apparently, these deep convictions do not include concern for bearing false witness, adultery, gluttony, greed, pride, or sloth.
According to the Texas pastor, Trump has nothing to worry about because evangelicals show up in larger numbers at the ballot box than other religious groups.
"[I]n the poll we’re talking about today," Jeffress said, "even though the evangelical number has dropped as a whole, the number of evangelicals turning out at the ballot box is greater than other groups, and it’s because evangelicals have deeper convictions. They believe in absolute moral and spiritual truth, and they tend to vote those convictions at the ballot box."
Jeffress did not explain how or why he came to the conclusion that evangelicals were spiritually superior to other believers.
