Right now, the internet is blowing up with a sermon given by Georgia Democrat Senatorial hopeful Raphael Warnock.
In his sermon, Warnock state that “you cannot serve God and the military.”
Rubio posted the snippet and was then called out by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), only the self-anointed scripture expert misspelled the Gospel she was trying to quote.
So, this is how this all got started.
Warnock is one of two Democrat candidates for the Senate in Georgia, but Warnock is by far the more controversial for things he has both said and affiliations he has had throughout the years.
A sermon of his is all over the internet declaring “you cannot serve God and the military” at the same time.
Rubio tweeted that out while at the same time blasting Warnock for his comments…

Ilhan Omar quickly responded, referring to the Gospel of Matthew, only she misspelled Matthew in her tweet…
😳 Mathews 6:24
“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and dmoney.”
The lies and smears of the GOP have no boundaries, but this is a disgrace and shameful. https://t.co/1G6OhsL2B5

It did not take long for people to pounce on the mistake…
Bible expert Ilhan Omar quotes the book of "Mathews"
Also, she has no idea what she is talking about and she's wrong https://t.co/OdZnaOSZHa

The Bible verse that Omar was attempting to quote is Matthew 6:24.
It reads, “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
Mammon is referring to materialism or wealth.
Warnock’s campaign has already tried to push back on the criticism of the sermon, stating, “This sermon is based on a biblical verse that reads ‘No man can serve two masters… Ye cannot serve God and mammon,’ a biblical term for wealth.
“Reverend Warnock was speaking about the need to commit to moral life before pursuing other priorities.”
That, however, is not the interpretation that was made by most that heard his words in that 2011 sermon.
This man could be more dangerous than any other member of Congress, quite frankly, which just elevates the importance of the Georgia runoff race more.
