“The violent take it by force:” MAGA pastor cites violent passages, hinting at Trump’s return to the White House during ReAwaken Tour

Mark Burns, a pro-Trump pastor, used his interpretation of the Bible to justify the potential violence needed to return Trump to the White House in 2024.

Burns used several passages from the Bible to quote violence during the ReAwaken America Tour event that started at the Trump National Doral in Miami.

The pastor misspoke

Talking to the crowd at Doral, the pastor said, “You got to get to the point where you realize that when they smack you in the face, you smack them back two times harder.”

Not quite like in the Bible

Burns interpreted Matthew 5:38-40, which actually says, “If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.”Burns continued, saying, “Bible says the violent take it… and we take it by force.”

This, too, was false

The passage was Matthew 11:12, which says, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now, the Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.”

Anti-Defamation League called out the tour

ADL Director Jonathan Greenblatt described the pastor’s comments as “objectionable” and “offensive.” ADL branded the event as “a series of controversial far-right conferences.”

Baptist minister criticized the pastor

Baptist minister Brian Kaylor tweeted the clip with the caption, “Pastor Mark Burns preaches the hope of a second coming of Donald Trump during ReAwaken America at Trump Doral. He also calls for war as he rewrites Bible to cut “turn the other cheek,” which Trump world often does.

The minister had more to say

In a follow-up tweet, the minister wrote, ” This isn’t just politics; this is a syncretic religious movement.” Kaylor continued, “Pastor Brian Gibson & wife Jessi tell those at ReAwaken America at Trump Doral to fight against liberals by having many children.” He added, “They argue masking was wrong since we’re made in the image of God & thus shouldn’t be covered up (they didn’t explain if logic extends to pants).”

The event also had a prophet

Kaylor, who has a Ph.D. in political science, also shared a clip of a “prophet.” He added a caption, “Prophet” Amanda Grace speaking during ReAwaken America at Trump Doral to offer a word from God. She’s speaking as if from God, attacking “those fools that sit in the White House.”

Not surprised

The minister was not surprised to see Donné Clement Petruska and explained that she talked about the “prophecies” of her late father, Kim Clement, “This presentation is used to say God ordained Trump to serve another prez term & that ReAwaken America is part of God’s plan.”

Who is being worshiped?

Kaylor shared, “When I attended ReAwaken American in Branson, the most disturbing part was the baptism service. They’ll be baptizing more people into this movement tonight, but it’s worse because people will be getting baptized at Trump Doral. Who’s being worshiped?”

Eric Trump mocked CNN

The minister said Eric Trump praised the Trump property, adding he “claims his family made it great after it was run down & says that’s what his dad did (& will do) as president. Like other speakers, he mocks CNN for being owned by Trump at the town hall.”

A convict was in attendance

This time, the minister shared another clip regarding Jan 6: “One of those convicted for role in Jan 6 insurrection asked the crowd to join him in praying Lord’s Prayer as proof of their devotion to the cause he marched for on Jan 6.” One person stated, “Absolute blasphemy.” Another tweeted, ” I am not surprised at the level Republicans will go to promote violence; using the Bible is just another step down into the Swamp.” A Twitter poster shared, “Cults gotta cult,” while another added, “I’m dyin’- has it come to this!? Black and Latino thinking they’re white supremacists?”
