WATCH: Ga. Senate Candidate Warnock Says Americans ‘Can’t Serve God and Serve in the Military’

'You cannot serve God and mammon at the same time...'

Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock said in a 2011 sermon that Americans cannot serve God while also serving in the U.S. military, according to a recently unsurfaced video.

“America, nobody can serve God and the military,” Warnock said in the sermon delivered at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, where he serves as senior pastor.

“You can’t serve God and money,” he continued. “You cannot serve God and mammon at the same time … America, choose ye this day who you will serve. Choose ye this day!”

According to a 2018 Department of Defense report, Georgia has the fifth largest active-duty military population in the country. And according to another study, nearly 80% of Georgians identify themselves as Christian.

Incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., who is running against Warnock, slammed him for insulting the many men and women who serve our country.

Warnock has made several other controversial statements over the course of his career.

He has praised Barack Obama’s former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who has a long history of anti-Semitism, and agreed with Wright that Israel is an “oppressive regime.”

Warnock also worked for a Harlem church that once hosted and applauded Cuban dictator Fidel Castro in 1995.
