A pastor at a church in Renton, Washington has issued an imprecatory prayer over Trump supporters who attended the rally at Capitol Hill, publicly praying for their death and that God justly smites them off the face of the earth.
Pastor Mike Thomas of Radiant Covenant Church is a woke church with a BLM fist sign featured prominently and garishly behind the pulpit and whose recommended reading list includes James Cone, Ibram X. Kendi, Jemar Tisby, and Willie James Jennings. He made the comments during a recent church service, quoting the well-known imprecatory Psalm 94 in relation to protesters who marched on Washington.
Describing them as racist white supremacists, he declares they are worthy of judgment and for the Lord to execute it, praying:
The Bible says, O Lord, the God of vengeance. O God of vengeance, let your glorious justice shine forth. Arise, O judge of the earth. Give the proud what they deserve. How long Lord? How long would the wicked be allowed to gloat? How long will they speak with arrogance? How long will these evil people boast?
They crush your people, Lord, hurting those you claim as your own. They kill widows and foreigners and murder orphans. ‘The Lord isn’t looking,’ they say, ‘and besides, the God of Israel does not care…’
You all today as we reflect on the storming of the Capitol by supremacists, you all I find myself grieved, angry, exhausted, and fearful. In the wake of the events that have transpired in Washington, DC, and closer to home in Olympia, Washington…
We have seen – you’re going to see them now – we have seen the horrific images. [Images from the Capitol play in the background] We are reminded of the reality that supremacy, racism, thirst for greed, and control at any cost is unfortunately still alive and well. But to be honest with you, I asked, ‘why not?’ What do we really expect from a country that continues to sweep its sins under the proverbial rug?
I cried out, ‘I am slipping. But your unfailing love O Lord supported me.’ When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer. Can unjust leaders claim that God is on their side? Leaders whose decrees permit injustice, they ganged up against the righteous and condemned the innocent to death. But the Lord is my fortress. My God is the mighty rock where I hide. God will turn the sins of evil people back on them. He will destroy them for their sins, the Lord our God will destroy them.
