Christian radio host Bryan Fischer said on Friday that Jesus Christ is actually the supreme force in the universe, the power that is “keeping the universe from flying apart into fragments.”
The Friendly Atheist blog at Patheos.com reported that the remarks echo statements Fischer made in 2013 in which he said that Jesus is what holds atoms together and keeps electrons whirling around an atoms nucleus.
“What’s keeping the universe together right now?” said Fischer on Friday. “It’s Jesus Christ.”
Fischer then began to read from the Bible’s book of Hebrews, “He upholds the universe by the word of his power,” and added, “So what’s keeping the universe from flying apart into fragments?”
“There is some magic force” in the physics of atoms and planetary bodies, he said. “Scientists don’t even know what it is, it’s called the strong force because it keeps the nuclei together. They don’t know what it is.”
“But we know who it is,” he continued. “Jesus Christ is the strong force that holds the universe by the word of his power.”

Trump’s racism is ‘disqualifying’ for him to remain as president: former White House lawyer
Former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal explained on MSNBC on Thursday why he viewed President Donald Trump's racist attacks on four women of color in Congress as disqualifying.
Anchor Brian Williams read a quote from Susan Glasser of The New Yorker.
"Half of the country is appalled but not really sure how to combat him; the other half is cheering, or at least averting its gaze. This is what a political civil war looks like, with words, for now, as weapons," Glasser wrote.
Lawrence O’Donnell reports on the growing movement for the impeachment of President Donald Trump
Anchor Lawrence O'Donnell reported on the growing movement for the impeachment of President Donald Trump during Thursday evening's "The Last Word" on MSNBC.
"The House of Representatives conducted a symbolic vote on a hastily written impeachment resolution by Democratic Congressman Al Green in reaction to the president’s tweeted comments that the House of Representatives voted to condemn as racist," O'Donnell reported. "The impeachment resolution had nothing to do with the [Robert] Mueller investigation and referred only to the president being unfit for office because of the language that he has used recently about members of Congress and immigrants and asylum seekers."
Video proves how far the Trump’s GOP has gone from the era of Ronald Reagan and HW Bush
The immigration policies of Donald Trump’s presidency would have no room for his GOP predecessors Ronald Reagan or George H.W. Bush—who both embraced work visas, family unification, easy border crossings and a better relationship with Mexico.
That counterpoint can be seen in a very short video clip from the 1980 presidential election where Reagan and Bush—who became Reagan’s vice president for two terms before winning the presidency in 1988—were asked about immigration at a campaign debate in Texas. Their responses show just how far to the right the Republican Party’s current leader, President Trump, and voters who have not left the GOP to become self-described political independents, have moved on immigration.
