In the same year, he also stated that Roman Catholicism is the Babylonian mystery religion’s ‘Satanic’ result.
Jeffress also once said that “Mormonism is wrong — it is a heresy from Hell’s pit, and he refers to LDS Church – the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a ‘cult’. This made him receive widespread criticism. However, the criticism did not retract regardless the Mitt Romney’s request for him to do so.
