CNN Host Don Lemon Claims Jesus Christ Was ‘Admittedly… Not Perfect’ During Discussion Blasting America’s Founders

Ultra-liberal CNN host Don Lemon drew criticism online after he claimed that Jesus Christ was ‘admittedly not perfect’ during a segment in which he attacked America’s founding fathers.

Critics pointed out that Lemon’s remarks showed complete ignorance of basic Christian teaching.

As The Daily Wire reports:

Don Lemon claimed Jesus Christ “admittedly was not perfect” when he was on earth, prompting ridicule from some who accused the CNN host of being ignorant of the basic tenets of Christianity.

During a discussion about the shortcomings of the Founding Fathers on Monday night with fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo, Lemon said, “Here’s the thing: Jesus Christ — if that’s who you believe in, Jesus Christ — admittedly was not perfect when he was here on this earth.”

As Cuomo nodded approvingly, Lemon continued, “So why are we deifying the founders of this country, many of whom owned slaves, and in the Constitution — the original one — they didn’t want, they put slavery in there, that slavery should be abolished because it was the way the king wanted. And then the Congress said, ‘No way!’”

Evangelical author Eric Metaxas, who clashed with Cuomo last December in a heated exchange about abortion and whether Christians should support President Donald Trump, tweeted the clip and mocked, “‘To be embarrassingly culturally ignorant may be regarded as a misfortune, but to proclaim one’s ignorance whilst hosting a major tv show looks like carelessness!’ — Oscar Wilde.”

And Jesus was perfect in every way. He was God. This NWO hack needs to be fired or boycotted. let’s give him the medicine the liberals give conservatives. Boycott his show. Where are the corporations that were so quick to pull their advertising from the Tucker Carlson show for telling the truth. This guy is a habitual liar.

There is this POV…if I may?……why should Christians get bent out of shape. Jesus wasn’t perfect?….based on what standards? Overturning the tables? Having wine with the common folk? Cursing out the Vipers?…no Donny boy…..Jesus was perfect. And he was also the perfect human being. Because he was completely transparent and non judgemental. He was not deceptive. He was not a sociopath. He was NOT a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He cried, he laughed authentically. Donny boy…..those of us who know you by your fruits…..say: Who really cares what you say little donny boy. Don’t worry donny boy….the puppet masters will still send you your check. We know who you are.

I’m so sorry for you. Jesus was the only perfect human sent to earth to forgive our sins by dying on the cross for everyone. He gave his life for you and me. I hope you ask for forgiveness and give your heart to God. The only other choice you have is burning in a lake of fire for all eternity. Please read the Bible that was written thousands of years ago and see what is happening today. Amazing.

Mr. Lemon has more to worry about than criticism from the public and or media. He will have to fAce Jesus Christ when he dies and let’s say, I would not want to in his shoes when Jesus says “Depart from me, I never knew you” and sends him to a very hot place. The bible says about Jesus “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.” Mr. Lemon needs to go to church and repent.

Jesus just whispered in my ear, “Wait until Don stands before me in judgement.”
Jesus Christ was born without sin. He was sent by the Father to save the rest of the population of this earth, giving even the most unrepentant soul a chance at the glories of Heaven.
Folks, the tv and Hollywood personalities like to fit in, and how can you do that if you let people know you believe in Jesus? So sad.

Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. That means all of those in hell also. Meaning: there are two kinds of people – those who believe in Jesus Christ, and those who will.

For Him to have been not perfect, Jesus would have to have committed ONLY one sin.
So, Mr Lemon, please tell us what that one sin was. Oh, and you will have to provide evidence and proof of that sin. What historical document states what that sin was?
Mind you now. You now have the opportunity to completely destroy all of Christianity. Because if Jesus was not perfect, then there is no basis for Christianity.
So please oh please let us Christians know what that sin was.

Dear Mr. Lemon,
I pray that God will open your eyes to the truth. Every soul will one day proclaim that
Jesus Christ is Lord! I hope that you will accept Jesus as your Savior and proclaim the
Gospel to those who follow you.
