It also called on the UK Home Office to lift its ban on members of the church visiting the UK and stated it was his ‘last Christmas before Hell’.
The Wham! star was found by his partner Fadi Fawaz and is believed to have passed away from suspected heart failure.
The church claimed George “lived a life of proud sin” and that he had paid the price for it.
In another Tweet, it claimed friends of the singer were wrong to call him honest and brilliant because “God called him an abomination, liar and enemy.”
Pastor Steven Anderson, who was banned from the UK and several other countries earlier this year, also took to social media to ridicule George’s death.
On Facebook, he claimed that “being a sodomite shaves 20 years off your life expectancy.”
He also referred to the star as an “open Sodomite” before quoting a Psalm that indicated he was deceitful.
Many stars have paid tribute to George since his death, including Elton John who said he was in “deep shock”.
