The infamous Senator out of Georgia, Raphael Warnock, posted an Easter Tweet on Sunday before taking it down after fierce backlash.
The Senator also happens to be a ‘woke pastor’ and has several times made references to things that aren’t biblical despite him being a Reverend.
After posting his “interesting” tweet, Warnock immediately ripped it down because many say that it diminished the true meaning of Easter.
Read what his Tweet said below:
“The meaning of Easter is more transcendent than the resurrection of Jesus Christ,” Warnock wrote.
“Whether you are Christian or not, through a commitment to helping others we are able to save ourselves.”
Which part was worse?
The ‘save ourselves’ part or the part that mentions the day being ‘more transcendent than the resurrection of Jesus Christ?”
Keep in mind, this guys is the SENIOR pastor of New Ebenezer Baptist Church and he also gave an Easter Sunday Service. It’s not released if he delivered that same rhetoric in his pastoral message or not on Sunday.
Considering more than a quarter of the world is a Christian, it’s no surprise that there was intense backlash about this statement which really diminished the power of the resurrection for Christians.
Some folks decided to respond Warnock’s message in which they described it as “heresy” and “false gospel.”
The former Donald Trump attorney Jenna Ellis responded by stating the human condition is the reason why human’s cannot save themselves, which further argues the need for a savior.
“The absolute truth and only meaning of Easter that matters is the literal, physical resurrection of Jesus Christ, and we must accept Him as Lord and Savior,” Ellis said in a response to Warnock’s message. Ellis went on to also call Warnock a “false teacher.”
However, Ellis’s message did NOT go over well with MSNBC star, Joy Reid, who made it clear that she favors Warnock’s opinion.
“Madame, I’m gonna take @ReverendWarnock’s take, as a pastor and a scholar on the Word over yours, if you don’t mind.” Reid said in her tweet. See the tweet below:

Note to Joy — You don’t have to listen to my take, but always a better bet to believe God’s take. Read your Bible, and you’d have known this was heresy and a false gospel. pic.twitter.com/3UCFzNE5bp
