Virginia Republican Lt. Gov. Candidate: Non-Christians Have ‘False Religion’
Now that’s a good way to reach out to the broadest number of voters. E. W. Jackson, who is also a Chesapeake pastor, gave a Sunday morning sermon where he said that people who don’t worship Jesus Christ “are engaged in some sort of false religion.”
“Any time you say, ‘There is no other means of salvation but through Jesus Christ, and if you don’t know him and you don’t follow him and you don’t go through him, you are engaged in some sort of false religion,’ that’s controversial. But it’s the truth,” Jackson said, according to a recording of the sermon by a Democratic tracker. “Jesus said, ‘I am the way the truth and the life. No man comes unto the Father but by me.’”
This is not Jackon’s only flirtation with controversy. Previously, he’s stated that social programs are worse for blacks than slavery, claimed that if you meditate, Satan will ‘”invade the empty vacuum of your soul, and has spoken out against desegregation.
