Back in 2015, we posted a clip of former Rep. Michele Bachmann declaring that since the End Times were soon to begin, it was more important than ever for Christians to focus on converting as many people as possible—including Jews—to Christianity in preparation for the imminent return of Christ.
Bachmann was in Israel over the weekend for the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem and reportedly apologized for those remarks while participating in an interfaith Bible study.
“I have stated things that I should not have said and I profoundly apologize and repent and ask forgiveness from Almighty God for my statements that, though said in ignorance, have brought pain,” she said.
Bachmann’s apology outraged End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles, who rebuked her on his “TruNews” program on Monday and told her that she had better pray that God “does not blot your name out of the book of life,” which is a reference to Revelation 20:15, which states that “anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.”
“Shame on you, Michele Bachmann,” Wiles fumed. “Shame on you! I am rebuking you, Michele Bachmann on national Christian television. I’m rebuking you because you have denied Jesus Christ. You’ve denied the Lord Jesus Christ and you’d better hope and pray that God shows to you, Michele Bachmann, and he does not blot your name out of the book of life.”
