Senate candidate and “pastor” Raphael Warnock urged his congregation Sunday to “trust in Jesus,” a hypocritical message when his answer to pregnant women in difficult situations is to abort their unborn babies.
Warnock, a Georgia Democrat, likes to describe himself as a “pro-choice pastor,” but he supports legislation that would force states to legalize the killing of unborn babies – children made in the image of God – for basically any reason up to birth and force taxpayers to pay for abortions.
He is facing a difficult re-election campaign against pro-life Republican Herschel Walker.
According to the New Republic, Warnock’s final sermon before election day focused on trusting and having faith in God. He is the senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta.
The pastor began by quoting the hymn, “Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,” singing, “We’ve come this far by faith,” according to the report. From the pulpit, he expressed confidence that God will give him another political win this week.
“The same God who delivered me the last time, will deliver me this time. The same God who delivered me victory that time, will give me victory this time,” Warnock said.

Here’s more from the report:
The emphasis on faith threaded through his words on Sunday morning, with a clear message for his supporters: Regardless of the outcome of the election, God’s will would prevail. “I don’t know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future,” Warnock said. …
“This is our Exodus,” Warnock intoned, his voice rising with the passionate tenor of a preacher rousing his flock. “Tell everybody you know to turn out and vote. Tell them that a vote is a kind of prayer for the world we desire for our children and ourselves.”
But Warnock opposes rights and protections for children before they are born in contradiction to Christianity, and other Christian leaders have corrected him about his pro-abortion beliefs. In 2020, a group of pastors sent a letter urging the Democrat politician to recognize that unborn babies are “sacred human persons” who deserve protections under the law.
“Unborn Black, Brown and White lives are so much more than clumps of cells, burdensome inconveniences, or health problems,” they wrote at the time. “They are sacred human persons endowed by God with inalienable dignity and worth. We implore you to uphold the Biblical defense of life and to fight against the systemic racism of abortion.”
Ignoring their words, Warnock later voted for legislation that would force states to allow unborn babies to be aborted for basically any reason up to birth and force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions. He has a 100-percent pro-abortion voting record, according to NRLC.
In contrast, his pro-life Republican challenger, Walker, has spoken publicly about his conservative pro-life beliefs for years. In September, Walker said he is “a proud pro-life Christian” who “will always stand up for our unborn children.”
“You never know what a child is going to become,” Walker said. “And I’ve seen some people, they’ve had some tough times, but I always said, ‘No matter what, tough times make tough people.’”
Two new polls show Walker with a slight lead over Warnock, according to Five Thirty Eight.
