Pastor John Hagee: God thinks ‘nasty’ welfare recipients should get a job or starve

Pastor John Hagee (GETV)

In his Sunday sermon at the Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Pastor John Hagee explained that it is “God’s position” that welfare recipients should get a job or expect to starve, according toRight Wing Watch.

Stating that America has an underclass of citizens  dependent upon help from the government  equal to the population of Spain, Hagee asserted that there is a division in America, “Those who pay double through taxes, and those who get a free ride. This is not justice, and this is not the American way.”

While admitting that there are some unfortunate Americans  who need help, Hagee admonished  others to get off the couch and get a job.

“To those of you who are sick, to those of you who are elderly, to those of you who are disabled, we gladly support you,” he said as his voice began to rise. “To the healthy who can work but won’t work, get your nasty self off the couch and go get a job!”

Hagee went on to say that “America has rewarded laziness and we’ve called it welfare,” before adding “The Bible says ‘The man who does not work, should not eat.’ I know the liberals hate that verse, but read it and weep! It’s God’s position.”

The video does not show Hagee reading  Matthew 25:35 where occasionally-employed itinerant carpenter Jesus Christ reportedly said, “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”

 “The Bible says ‘The man who does not work, should not eat.’

This is not an uncommon view in Christian churches. I've heard and read it several times.

2 Thessalonians 3:10 

Quoting Ms.KitKat:

Hagee and his type of "preachers" aren't men or women of G-d. They are churchian politicians.

I wonder if he gave similar sermons when the behaviors of top bankers, CEOs and CFOs, like Enron, for example, were exposed?

You know, about greed and thieving?

Written by Paul. Not the words of Jesus.

One of the biggest problems in the country right now, (other than all the Obama scandals) is the fact that while there are so many people not working - no ones missing any meals.

Sends all the wrong signals.
