While chatting last week about the upcoming presidential election, televangelists Rick Joyner and Jim Bakker spoke highly of GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, with Bakker comparing him to Harry Truman.
Joyner, meanwhile, made his own analogy, comparing Trump to Jesus and his disciples.
According to Joyner, Trump and Jesus were both “tough” guys who intimidated others:
You look at the type of leaders that Jesus chose, they were more like Donald Trumps. And think of how he treated him. We think of Jesus as just this big teddy bear, think of this, these are some of the toughest guys you could find. He puts them together — they hate each other when he calls them — puts them together, lives with them for three and a half years and after three and a half years of living with Jesus, the night before he’s crucified, they’re afraid to ask him a question. ‘John, you ask him. He called me Satan, he won’t call you Satan.’ Think about it. Jesus was a tough character. These are tough guys and they’re intimidated by him after three and a half years of living with him.
