GOD TV Humbly Apologizes on Social Media for Criticism of Sean Feucht by Shawn A. Akers for Charisma News
A few days after calling evangelist, author and Christian artist Sean Feucht “blasphemous” on social media, GOD TV took to social media once again Thursday to issue an apology to Feucht.
On Sunday, the Christian media network sent out a tweet that criticized Feucht for retweeting a message from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. DeSantis’ message was: “You gotta be ready for battle. So put on the full armor of God. Take a stand against the Left’s schemes. Stand firm with the belt of truth buckled around your waist. You will face fire from flaming arrows, but the shield of faith will protect.”
GOD TV apparently took exception to Feucht’s actions, saying Feucht and DeSantis “changed the Word of God”—Ephesians 6:11-12—for political purposes. “Perhaps Sean did not fully realize what he was sending out. But this is exactly the opposite of what Paul is communicating in Ephesians 6. In fact, this could be considered blasphemous. … Sadly, many have merged politics with Jesus, when in fact, Jesus transcends politics.”
Ward Simpson, the President and CEO of GOD TV, sent a message out over the company’s Facebook page, saying GOD TV “sincerely regrets any hurt, confused or offense this may have caused.”
Here is the entirety of Simpson’s message:
“Dear GOD TV family and friends,
“Please accept our sincere apology for our post on Sunday Aug 21st which was never intended to be seen as an attack on Sean Feucht or on Governor Ron DeSantis. The intention of our post and the results of the post were certainly not the same, and we sincerely regret any hurt, confusion or offense that this may have caused. We love both Sean Feucht and Governor Ron DeSantis and pray for everyone who is calling America back to God.
