Televangelist Kenneth Copeland said during a recent interview that Christians who do not vote in the upcoming election will be "guilty of murder."
"Any Christian who stays at home and doesn't vote is guilty of murder. Every person who votes for someone knowing, knowing that they push for abortion and to kill a baby anytime they want to kill it, they're just as guilty as the doctor that performed the abortion. There's no way around it," Copeland said in a podcast interview with Charisma Magazine founder and CEO Stephen Strang on Monday.
Copeland urged voters to focus on the platform — rather than the personalities — of candidates to inform their vote. He said that Democrats have "totally and completely separated themselves from God."
"I'm not agreeing with Donald Trump's personality. I've met him, I've laid hands on him and prayed for him," Copeland said. "Personally, I like him but I'm not voting for a personality here. I am voting and putting and casting my ballot concerning that platform. And God is no longer part of the platform of the Democratic Party."
The televangelist said that it was politics that "killed the Savior."
"It doesn't do any good to pray if you're not willing to act. Pray for the president, yes, pray for the vice president, yes. Go vote. Go vote. I said go vote," Copeland said.
