Jeffress and a number of major evangelical pastors have hit back against Romney, however, positioning that Jesus Christ being the only way for salvation is a view in line with Christian belief.

Jeffress, a Dallas-based pastor and known supporter of President TrumpDonald John TrumpUS paid Trump's Scottish resort for VIP hotel stays: report Michael Avenatti tweets, then deletes, Fox News booker's phone number Former Trump aide working with Russian company to lift United States sanctions: report MORE, said over the weekend that he would be leading the prayer at the dedication of the new embassy.

The Anti-Defamation League on May 14 expressed disappointment in the selection of pastor Robert Jeffress, a Southern Baptist evangelical, to offer a prayer at the dedication of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. Afterward, Jeffress spoke with reporters and told them that the Mormon Church is a cult.

Robert Jeffress has been slammed as a "bigot" over comments he made on Islam, Mormonism and homosexuality.

"Mormonism has never been considered a part of historic Christianity".

A leading Baptist minister who prayed at the opening of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem is being attacked for past statements about other faiths. "The truth that I, together with tens of hundreds of thousands of evangelical Christians all over the world, proceed to espouse that perception, is neither bigoted nor newsworthy".

Jeffress told Todd Starnes of Fox News on Sunday that he was "stunned" by Romney's remarks.

The hate-filled pastor has also said the Catholic Church is following Satan's path and that Barack Obama was "paving the way" for the arrival of the antichrist. "We sometimes use the same terminology but it has vastly different meanings and I just really encourage people now that they know Mormonism is a theological cult, to go ahead and do the research on their own", he said at the time.

The relocation of the embassy marks a virtually three decade departure from USA worldwide coverage and has been largely regarded by evangelical Christians as a significant victory for the Trump administration.

"I'm going to be thanking God for the strong leadership of Benjamin Netanyahu, who is absolutely determined to protect Israel", Jeffress said.

Trump has been criticized for announcing plans to relocate the embassy and for formally recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
