Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) was mocked by the left for expressing her Christian faith in the second coming of Jesus Christ at a GOP event in Tennessee as she addressed the Knox County Republican Party Lincoln Day dinner on Wednesday night.
“I’m so happy to be in Knox County. Thank you so much, Congressman Burchett, for inviting me, my husband here. I want to start really with two words: ‘Let’s go, Brandon,’” Boebert began taking a shot at President Biden while thanking Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.)
“It is something else to be serving in our nation’s Capitol right now. In all seriousness, there is a calling on each and every one of you to be involved and to rise up. It is an honor to serve in this time. I believe that many of us in this room believe that we are in the last of the last days,” she unflinchingly stated, referring to the Book of Revelation and the End Times that many Christians believe are upon us.
“And that’s not a time to complain. That’s not a time to grumble, to be dismayed, to be disheartened, but a time to rejoice. You get to be a part of the sharing in the second coming of Jesus,” Boebert asserted.

Boebert is in a tight race with Democrat Adam Frisch to get reelected to her seat in Colorado. She has been a lightning rod for the left who love to attack her over gun rights and now, her religion. The representative is just one of a number of high-profile Christians who are under attack by the left for their faith. From a Christian’s perspective, running for office is inextricably tied to their faith.
“The reason we had so many overreaching regulations in our nation is because the church complied. The church is supposed to direct the government,” she stated at Cornerstone Christian Center in Basalt, Colorado in June, receiving backlash from the left for daring to do so.

“The government is not supposed to direct the church. That is not how our Founding Fathers intended it. And I’m tired of this separation of church and state junk that’s not in the Constitution. It was in a stinking letter and it means nothing like what they say it does,” Boebert passionately concluded.
The vitriol from the left over both statements was mind-blowing. But it came from the usual suspects.
The Lincoln Project tweeted, “Christian or not, Lauren Boebert cannot adequately represent any constituent who does not believe in this end times prophecy. Can you really have someone making decisions on your behalf that thinks nothing they do now will matter?”
Another on Twitter wrote, “If the end of times are coming why is she bothering with an election?”
If the end times are coming why is she bothering with an election?

“I say this in all sincerity as a Knox county constituent and as an actual Christian … what in the HELL was that all about???” another leftist asked.

Earlier in 2021, Boebert enflamed the left by suggesting Jesus may have prevented his crucifixion if he owned AR-15 rifles.
“How many AR-15s do you think Jesus would have had?” Boebert asked a crowd at a Christian event that took place in Colorado. “Well, he didn’t have enough to keep his government from killing him.”
Many Christians see parallels with that analogy today.
