Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar does not have to look very far to find controversy and trouble.
But Omar’s latest flare up may have been the most unexpected of her career.
And Ilhan Omar said one thing about Jesus that no one ever expected.
In a move that came out of nowhere, Ilhan Omar defended a GOP operative who expressed her Christian faith from a member of Congress who ignorantly attacked her.
It all began when Ohio GOP operative Lizzie Marbach wrote on social media that “there’s no hope for any of us outside of having faith in Jesus Christ alone.”
But matters got turned up to 11 when an Ohio Republican Congressman attacked Marbach as a bigot.
“This is one of the most bigoted tweets I have ever seen. Delete it, Lizzie. Religious freedom in the United States applies to every religion. You have gone too far,” Miller ranted.
It is a fundamental tenet of Christian faith – in fact, it’s kind of the whole point – that salvation comes through accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
The Bible lays out this principle throughout the New Testament.
In Acts of the Apostles, Peter says that “[s]alvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under Heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
The verse John 14:6 quotes Jesus as saying that “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’”
Of course, you know it’s bad when Ilhan Omar has to correct you on your understanding of the Christian faith.
But that is exactly what happened when Omar chimed in to scold Miller for not knowing that accepting Jesus as the one true Savior is fundamental to the Christian faith and that no member of Congress should attack an American citizen for expressing their religious beliefs.
No! Stating the core beliefs or principles of your faith isn’t bigoted as Lizzie did, its religious freedom and no one should be scolded for that.
It’s also wrong to speak about religious freedom while simultaneously harassing people who freely express their beliefs. https://t.co/NbgKr1MvIi

Miller knew he stepped in it big time and beat a hasty retreat by posting that he personally apologized to Marbach for smearing her as a bigot and that he was sorry he offended anyone as he never meant to personally attack Christians for their faith.
“I posted something earlier that conveyed a message I did not intend. I will not try to hide my mistake or run from it. I sincerely apologize to Lizzie and to everyone who read my post,” Miller wrote.
