Robert Jeffress explaining how sex works by jabbing his fingers together

Dr. Robert Jeffress, leader of the megachurch First Baptist Dallas, has weighed in with his opinion on the recent political turmoil surrounding President Donald Trump and the ongoing war of words between the USA and the North Korean leader.

"In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un", Jeffress was quoted as saying by the Washington Post as saying.

The statement comes after Trump said, "They [North Korea] will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen." if they continue to make threats against the United States. "That gives the government to the authority to do whatever, whether it's assassination, capital punishment or evil punishment to quell the actions of evildoers like Kim Jong Un", he said.

But, Phil Hotsenpiller, another notable Christian leader, told Lauren Green that if Romans 13 is to be taken the way Jeffress said, the Kim regime would've been removed years ago.

Rival TripAdvisor also slumped after its latest quarterly report showed that online and transaction revenue growth fell sharply. Benchmark 10-year notes US10YT=RR were last up 12/32 in price to yield 2.201 percent, from 2.242 percent late on Wednesday.

The pastor explained that Christians wary of getting involved in war will reference Romans 12:17, which reads, "Do not repay anyone evil for evil".

One was a retweet of a post that included a video of Trump promising "fire and fury" in response to Kim's missile provocations; one was a retweet of Fox's reporting more of the president's statement. And I believe the Bible is very clear about that.

He compared Trump to the biblical leader Nehemiah who helped rebuild the city of Jerusalem and erected a wall to protect the citizens.

"Oh yeah! Always on America's side when it comes to blowing stuff up", said the fictional "God".

Google celebrates history of hip hop with interactive doodle
Coming from a history of reggae music and beats poetry, hip hop was a fusion of blues, rap and reggae. Today's interactive doodle commemorates the 44th anniversary of the first DJ party.

A controversy soon followed, and much of the country learned of Jeffress' record of over-the-top extremism on issues throughout the so-called "culture war", with the Texas pastor having lashed out at everyone from gays to Mormons to Catholics.

Jeffress is also known for previously claiming former President Barack Obama had paved the way for the antichrist.

"Some Christians, perhaps younger Christians, have to think this through", he said. "Frankly, it's because they are not well taught in the scriptures". White evangelicals gave him 81 percent of their votes in November, a higher percentage than any other religious group.

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States", Trump told reporters at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Tuesday.

Century old 'perfectly preserved' fruit cake found in Antarctic hut
Scientists from the new Zealand heritage trust Antarctic hut at Cape Adare in hand was a odd find - a 106-year-old pie. The trust is now planning to begin conservation work on the huts.

It turns out that President Trump's "fire and fury" line was actually completely improvised, according to the New York Times. He said now that health care is off the table, evangelicals are hoping for tax reform, though he didn't have any specifics in mind.
