A few ministers have talked out against Bob Rodgers, a Kentucky megachurch minister who amid a worship service on Sunday reviled those who “stole” the 2020 Election
from President Donald Trump in the name of Jesus.
A group of Louisville pastors who heard the sermon, however, are now speaking out about the dangers of Rev. Bob Rodgers message in the wake of a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. by Trump supporters last Wednesday.
The storming of the Capitol delayed for hours the counting of the electoral votes and lead to the deaths of five people. President-elect Joe Biden was later confirmed as the victor of the 2020 election.
“Father, those that have lied, those that have stolen this election, those that have cheated, I place the curse of God upon them,” Rev. Bob Rodgers of Evangel World Prayer Center in Louisville, which claims 9,000 members, said in a video clip from the service shared online.
“I curse you with weakness in your body. I curse you with poverty. I cursed you with the worst year you’ve ever had in the name of the Lord.” Rodgers said further.
Rodgers, who is also president of Word Broadcasting Network in Louisville and co-hosts a Christian program called “Word Alive” with his wife, Margaret, said he was told personally by an angel that Trump would have won the election.
Frank Smith of Christ’s Church For Our Community called on Rodgers to apologize and confess that he had gone too far.
“Confess that you have gone too far,” Smith said. “Lead your people to truly a sound theology not tainted with Democratic patriotism but rather based on the sacrificial blood from the cross.”
