Internet Responds to POTUS' Personal Theologian Paula White & Her Clownish Theology of White Nationalism: "Do You Not Read Your Bible, Sis?"

Baptist theologian Fred Clark is superb today on precisely how the POTUS' personal theologian Paula White "beclowns herself" through her recent statement that Jesus — who was executed by the Romans via a sentence of capital punishment ordering his crucifixion, a punishment reserved in the Roman empire for the lowest order of criminals — never ran afoul of any laws, and "if he had broken the law then he would have been sinful and he would not have been our Messiah."Here's an excerpt from his commentary:

White's ideology suggests that Moses and Aaron and all of the people of Israel were being "sinful" by fleeing Egypt. 
Worse than that, White’s ideology suggests that everyone who ever breaks a law is being "sinful." Corrie Ten Boom. Anne Frank. Rosa Parks. John Lewis. Harriet Tubman. Frederick Douglass. Irena Sendler. Andre Trocme. Mary Dyer. Samuel Sharpe. Benjamin Franklin. Arnold Abbot. Shiphrah and Puah. According to Paula White, these are all sinful, sinful people full of law-breaking sin. 
This shows that White also does not understand — because of her religious-ish ideology and because of her Trump-worship — that it is often the case that obeying the law would be sinful. 
This, again, is kind of a major theme in the Bible. It's why, for example, a big chunk of the New Testament is made up of prison epistles.
