Reverend Raphael Warnock, the pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, wants you to vote him into the U.S. Senate in place of Senator Kelly Loeffler, who has demonstrated she is the staunchest supporter of President Trump. Warnock’s record reveals him to a radical racist using his clerical position to step, not up, but down into national politics.
If the GOP loses its majority status in the Senate, it will give the leftwing Democrats the power to put America into a freefall, landing us in a Socialist hell. Senator David Perdue’s seat is also in jeopardy being challenged by a lightweight novice Jon Ossoff. Perdue’s refusal to debate Ossoff is a huge political mistake. Perdue is slightly ahead in the polls, and you know the polls.
Ossoff is married to a physician whom he started dating as a teenager and “were together for more than a decade before Ossoff proposed in 2017.” His campaign statement admitted, “They’ve been together 12 years and were students together at Georgetown University.” Earlier media characterized his future wife as “his live-in girlfriend.”
That means Biden and Harris are joined by Ossoff as famous fornicators. Of course, in this “enlightened” day, sexual immorality is no big deal. After all, President Trump has been a member of that club for decades. While that is a fact, it is also a fact that if I have to choose between a fornicator who advocates abortion and the radical left agenda and a fornicator who rejects baby killing and is for liberty and free enterprise, not a Socialist state, my choice is easy to make.
Republicans must keep a majority in the Senate, or the nation will become as lost as the Lost Colony of Roanoke.
When Warnock was assistant pastor of a church in Harlem, they had Fidel Castro preach for them! The congregation chanted, “Fidel, Fidel, Fidel,” and closed the rally by singing the official Socialist left-wing anthem, Internationale! Fidel Castro was the Cuban communist revolutionary dictator who butchered anyone who opposed his Marxist plans, and he expressed a desire to use nuclear weapons against the United States. The stupid Baptists praised his speech, saying, “Viva Cuba!”
That is religion, but it is not Christianity that brought freedom to millions of people. I’m ashamed they have “Baptist” in their church name. I can assure you they are not biblical and historic Baptists.
Warnock refuses to inform us if he attended that service and if he opposed Castro’s appearance and if he joined in singing the Communist anthem. Any preacher with character would have stood in the congregation shouting his disagreement, disapproval, and disgust; then, he would have announced his resignation as assistant pastor. But then Warnock is an opportunist who has no character or convictions except for leftist convictions.
Warnock also praised Barack Obama’s anti-American, anti-Semitic pastor Reverend Jeremiah Wright who often called for God to “damn America” not bless America. Warnock defended Wright’s “God Damn America” sermon as a form of “truth-telling,” which makes the United States “uncomfortable.” Wright also suggested America “deserved” the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Wow, isn’t that Jeremiah a sweetheart! But the original Jeremiah would not be kind to the likes of Wright, Warnock and Company. Jeremiah wrote, “For the pastors are become brutish, and have not sought the LORD:… Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.” Pastors were warned later when God said, “I will visit upon you the evil of your doings.”
The candidate said, “We celebrate Rev. Wright.” I don’t celebrate him; like Warnock, he is a false prophet in a wolf skin. Warnock also claimed, “Marxist critique has much to teach the black church.”
Georgians care that Raphael Warnock has often been a proud defender of Jeremiah Wright, and Georgians will send him back to his church study, not the U.S. Senate. He is not ready for prime time.
In 2016, Warnock criticized white evangelical Christians and Catholics for supporting Trump for President. He also charged that Trump campaigned in 2016 as a “fascist, racist, sexist xenophobe.” Isn’t it funny that radicals like Warnock accuse their opponents of what they themselves are!
Warnock opined, “Americans can’t serve God and the military,” but such a distortion convinces me that Warnock is twisting the Bible and history like a pretzel to support his candidacy, or he slept during seminary days when Early Church History was discussed. The very name of his church, Ebenezer Baptist of Atlanta, is a witness to Warnock’s error.
Those who declare that early Christians did not serve in the military are correct; however, the early Christians were not perfect. They had some error, often an excessive expression of biblical truth. Some of them threw themselves at martyrdom, thinking they would receive 100 times the rewards as others. While we can admire their sincerity, we must not emulate their stupidity. They wanted the martyr’s crown, so they often courted persecution and prosecution by going into pagan temples and breaking the furniture and idols. It got so bad that church leaders stated that any who sought death would not be considered martyrs. They were considered to be suicides.
The very early Christians would not serve in the military because of its paganism demonstrated by offering prayers to pagan gods. Furthermore, it was the military that broke up their services and dragged them to jail. Principled military people would never do that. Would they? In later days, the persecution subsided, and some Christians even came into power, and the anti-military attitude ceased.
The name of Warnock’s church militates against his anti-military position, making him look very foolish. His church is the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. Maybe he doesn’t know the significance of his church name. In 1 Samuel 7:2–14, the prophet told the Israelites to put away their strange gods and confess their sins, followed by Samuel offering a burnt sacrifice to God.
After their obedience and submission, the Israelites soundly defeated the Philistines, and “the men of Israel went out of Mizpeh, and pursued the Philistines, and smote them.” Samuel put up a stone in memorial and named it Eben-Ezer, meaning “stone of help.” As Samuel said, “Hitherto hath the LORD helped us.”
Had the Israelites followed the flawed, false, and fainthearted advice of Warnock, they would have fled to their tents and covered themselves with a blanket. But, no, they militantly went after their enemies. Obviously, you can serve God and the military. Had Israel followed Warnock’s advice, David would have pitched aside his sling and stones he used against Goliath.
Warnock’s silly statement was an oxymoron, or more precisely, Warnock is a…. no, I’ll not say it, but then that might qualify him to be a Senate Democrat.
In August, Raphael Warnock told WGAU’s Tim Bryant that abortion is “consistent” with his philosophy as a Christian minister. Say what? Abortion has been criticized, condemned, and contemned (scorned) by Christians and Jews for millennia. Warnock’s failure is not just his lack of orthodoxy; he is outrageous and obnoxious as a religious leader.
Warnock in 2019 called for the mass release of prisoners, saying, “Somebody’s got to open up the jails and let our children go.” Yes, the “children” need to be in school or playing in the park. His radical friends in Congress want to do away with prisons and defund the police departments. Warnock referred to police officers as “gangsters” and “thugs” in 2015.
In a 2012 sermon, the Atlanta reverend attacked Christians who support the death penalty in compliance with the Bible. The preacher advocated on behalf of Georgia death row inmate Troy Davis who was convicted of murdering an off-duty Savannah police officer in 1989. Davis was executed in 2011. Warnock called Davis an “innocent man.” No, he was an indecent thug who got what he deserved. The preacher called the death penalty the “final failsafe of white supremacy” in a 2013 speech.
The candidate opposed church members carrying guns to defend innocent church members from terrorist attacks. He declared, “Guns are not allowed in the state Capitol. But they want them in our churches and in our schools. Have you lost your mind?” No, but he just lost the election to the U.S. Senate. Sane Georgians will not send a gun-grabber to Congress to disarm them.
He will support every leftist bill, pack the Senate, take your guns, add two more states (and their U.S. Senators) to the nation, and freedom will be lost forever as Socialists rule and ruin from sea to shining sea.
Warnock obviously decries what he does not understand. If he is so careless about what he is supposed to know and revere, what can we expect of him in the Senate?
CNN defended Warnock by saying the massive advertising in Georgia is an attack “upon his faith.” No, it is an attack upon the corrupt theology and politics of an unqualified, undesirable, and unfit candidate. He is an advocate for gender identity and a cheerleader for the LGBTQ crowd.
Warnock identified Jesus as, “that poor Palestinian prophet who said that the spirit of the Lord is on me.” No, Raphael, Jesus was Jewish of the tribe of Judah and He was not just a prophet. He was the Messiah and God in the flesh. If Warnock doesn’t know that, he should run, not walk, to turn in his preaching credentials.
The evidence seems to suggest that Warnock may be eminently qualified for Venezuelan pre-1999 Senate but not the U.S. Senate. It seems he also may not qualify for any pulpit.
From one Georgian to another, just say “no” to Warnock.

Fact, Fraud or Faith?
by Don Boys, Ph.D.
Only an uninformed fanatic says that evolution or creation can be proved scientifically. Christians believe in creationism because we believe in the veracity of the Bible but we also have scientific evidence to support our position. In every debate I’ve had with evolutionary scientists, the arrogant, asinine accusation is made, “Well, evolution is scientific while creationism is religion.” Evolution is about as scientific as a voodoo rooster plucking ceremony in Haiti. Almost.
