From the Department of Jesus Literally Said the Opposite of What You Are Teaching:

“It’s all part of The King coming back,” Feucht told the audience. “That’s what we’re practicing for,” he insisted, before adding, “That’s why we get called ‘Christian nationalists.’”

The King who let the state murder him rather than send his angels down to seize power by force.

Feucht then presented an imaginary dialog, in which he mockingly imitated the voice of secular critics: “You want The Kingdom to be the government,” he said, before thundering a reply in his own voice: “Yes!”

This is the same Church that oversaw inquisitions, crusades, pogroms, the Doctrine of Discovery, and the slave trade during previous periods when it had political power. Maybe Jesus was on to something with the whole suffering love rather than pursuit of power thing?

“You want God to come on over and take over the government,” he said, responding, again: “Yes!”

He’s obviously never heard the one about “my kingdom is not of this world.”

Apparently Sean Feucht’s Jesus said “screw you Pilate, I’m taking over for Caesar right now.” He said, “you see who’s on this coin? Give me the damn coin. I’m going to miracle my face onto it.”

Fuecht continued, now using his voice alone: “We want God to be in control of everything! We want believers to be the ones writing the laws! Yes! Guilty as charged.”

Not believers in Jesus, mind you. These believers will be right-wing Christofascist Moloch worshippers, because that really is what “Christian” nationalism is.
