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.”

‘Martyrdom for snowflakes’: CNN analyst knocks Republicans who desperately wanted to be arrested at protest
CNN host Don Lemon reported Wednesday evening that many Republicans wanted to be arrested for storming the secure room where the House Intelligence Committee depositions were taking place.
Fox News reporter Chad Pergram tweeted that he was told "there was never any chance [members] who barged into SCIF would be arrested by [capital police], but some members asked to be arrested. They wanted the optic of being frog-marched out of the SCIF in front of TV cameras. That would help w/GOP narrative of Dem process abuse."
Commentator Wajahat Ali called it the perfect example of "martyrdom for snowflakes."
Seth Meyers says Republicans storming classified room looked like a protest at a pharmacy that ran out of Viagra
"Late Night" comedian Seth Meyers couldn't help but lambast the far-right Republicans angry that they're not being included in the depositions ahead of the impeachment hearings.
Wednesday, Republicans stormed a secure room known as a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility), because they seemed to misunderstand the difference between a deposition and a hearing. In Congressional hearings, witnesses will be presented for members of the committee to question. In a classified deposition, the witness can give information that is considered classified for security reasons. Oddly, some members who are allowed in the room were also protesting.
WATCH: CNN’s Don Lemon bursts out laughing over Trump’s new wall in Colorado
CNN's Don Lemon typically deals with difficult and intense topics at the top of his weekly show. Wednesday night, however, after a serious opener about Syria and ISIS, Lemon broke into hysterics over President Donald Trump's flub saying he would build a border wall on Colorado's border.
"You know why we're going to win New Mexico? Because they want safety on our border. And they didn't have it," said Trump. "And we're building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we're building a wall in Colorado. We're building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works — you can't get over, you can't get under. And we're building a wall in Texas. And we're not building a wall in Kansas, but they get the benefit of the walls that we just mentioned. And Louisiana's incredible."
