Nebraska Pastor Hank Kunneman of One Voice Ministries said in a recent sermon that God would respond to the Tree of Life synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh by… curing cancer, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes. Somehow.
“Laugh if you may, mock if you may,” proclaimed Kunneman, “God says, ‘You cannot stop me. Therefore listen, at the place of Pittsburgh, the Tree of Life, look closely, there is something of life that is going to come now, for their blood speaks.”
Kunneman prophesied that President Trump would “join hands” with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to bring to the world “medical cures and scientific discoveries” that have been created in Israel.
“God says, ‘Watch as cancer shall be known as a thing of the past,’” Kunneman declared. “‘Alzheimer’s, diabetes shall be known as a thing of the past,’ says the Lord. ‘Watch! Their blood is not in vain. And watch my compassion,’ says the spirit of God.”
This should be a pretty easy thing to fact check… but if you’re the type of person who attends Kunneman’s church, you’re probably not the type of person who can do basic logic. If there ever comes a day when we can wipe out diseases, it’ll be thanks to scientific breakthroughs, not God trying to make amends for letting a dozen Jewish people get slaughtered.
What a horrible lie to tell a bunch of people who attend church to get whatever hope they can find.
