Don Lemon sparks backlash after claiming Jesus “admittedly was not perfect when he was here on this earth”

CNN’s Don Lemon has sparked backlash from many Christians over his interpretation of Jesus Christ and the bible.

During a recent segment with Chris Cuomo, Lemon said “Jesus Christ, if that’s who you believe, if that’s who you believe in, admittedly was not perfect when he was here on this earth.”


Many disagreed with Lemon’s view.

NFL Hall of fame coach Tony Dungy wrote:

I’m sorry Mr Lemon but just who “admitted” that Jesus Christ was not perfect here on earth? Not anyone who believes the Bible. Not anyone who trusts in Jesus as their savior. I’m not sure the point you’re making but your premise is dead wrong. That was the point in Jesus coming!

Could someone ask Don in which verse Jesus admitted He wasn’t perfect? I don’t think my Bible has that one.

What was His one imperfection? Loving everyone too much? Lol what a load crap

@donlemon needs to stop talking about things he doesn’t understand. Which pretty much means he should just stop talking period.
