A GOP candidate in Virginia recently claimed that Jesus is against government providing help for the needy.
On Wednesday, Religious Right activist Cynthia Dunbar joined Donald Trump–obsessed right-wingpreacher Lance Wallnau for a Facebook discussion of her campaign for Congress in Virginia. Dunbar went on to share her view that the proper biblical role for government is that it should have no role in providing for those in need, as that is a task that God has assigned to the church. “We have to realize that when we hand that [task] over to an ungodly government, without a heart, without a soul, that is not how God intended it to be done,” she said.
Wallnau agreed, saying that when you allow the government to expand beyond the sphere assigned to it by God, “you are actually empowering darkness to have authorization to control your life.”
