An Evangelical Author Reveals the One Scripture that Determined His Presidential Endorsement (Video)


In the Bible, Exodus 18:21 teaches Christians when picking leaders to “select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness.”

David Jeffers, author of Understanding Evangelicals: A Guide to Jesusland, in his latest video says that Scripture led him to make his presidential endorsement.

Jeffers ultimately settled on Sen. Ted Cruz, R-TX.

“Ted Cruz has already shown his willingness to defend Christians’ First Amendment rights,” he said, explicitly referring to Cruz’s recent Rally for Religious Liberty in Iowa, featuring persecuted Christians who have lost their jobs, their businesses, or – in the case of Nagemh Abedini, her husband – out of a commitment to the Gospel.

Jeffers also says he was impressed that Cruz “will stand for truth by calling the leader of his Senate caucus a liar, and that he will stand against what Cruz calls ‘the Washington Cartel.’

Cruz’s standing in the polls – he’s consistently near the top – and his hefty campaign donation haul and campaign organization-building abilities helped sway the endorsement, too.

Another attribute of Cruz that caught Jeffers’ eye was the former lawyer’s deft handling of Code Pink protesters and lesbian actress Ellen Page.

“We need a candidate who not only understand the issues America faces as a nation and the ability to run an effective campaign, but also someone who will stand for the truth no matter how uncomfortable the situation,” Jeffers adds.

David Jeffers said he wholeheartedly endorsea Ted Cruz, because Cruz understands the issues that are important to evangelicals that Jeffers wrote about in his 2006 book.
