Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas and a member of President Trump's evangelical advisory board, has also called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints a "cult" and said Islam is "based on a false book" and "if you sincerely follow the tenets of Islam, then you will end up in hell when you die". And I'm also going to be thanking God for our president Donald Trump, who had the courage to do what no other United States president has done, and that is to officially recognise Jerusalem and to move the embassy.

Jeffress has been a strong supporter of President Donald Trump, who made the decision in December to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the USA embassy there from Tel-Aviv.

According to Jeffress, "you can't be saved by being a Jew". He's said the same about Islam.

Prior to now, he's mentioned that President Barack Obama's insurance policies are "paving the way in which for the Antichrist", and that Islam "is a faith that promotes pedophilia".

Jeffress has a history of attacking Mitt Romney.

With Trump making good on a campaign promise to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem, the White House delegation to Monday's historic opening include senior advisers Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter, and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

Jeffress, who is a member of Trump's Evangelical Advisor Board, has previously praised the president's decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, CNN reported.

It also emerged that pastor John Hagee, the right-wing founder of Christians United for Israel, will deliver the benediction at the ceremony, a spokesman for his organisation confirmed to CNN.

Speaking with The Christian Post in 2011 about the controversy he had garnered from calling Mormonism a "cult", Jeffress said that what people find offensive is the notion that not everyone is going to Heaven. During the 2012 Presidential election, he told voters not to support Romney at the polls because he's Mormon. "The fact that I, along with tens of millions of evangelical Christians around the world, continue to espouse that belief, is neither bigoted nor newsworthy", Jeffries fired back at Romney.

Jeffress appeared on Fox News on Friday to discuss the embassy's opening.

Hagee claimed that his comments had been misrepresented, saying that 'to assert that I in any way condone the Holocaust or that monster Adolf Hitler is the biggest and ugliest of lies. "This is another example of promise made, promise kept", he added.
