Pastor Dr. Robert Jeffress: "Christian Response--Borders and Bombs"

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF

While many are wringing their hands in desperation and fear as to how to respond to the issue of terrorism and immigration, others, including our president, are mocking those who are rightfully concerned.

Dr. Robert Jeffress, pastor of the 12,000 member First Baptist Church-Dallas (Texas) gave a clear and direct message to his congregation last Sunday morning (Nov. 15) regarding the biblical aspect of this issue.

He defined the enemy, and the proper biblical response for our government toward ISIS and terrorism.

House Speaker Paul Ryan is bringing a bill before the House today that he believes is appropriate and in the best interest of all Americans.

Dr. Jeffress' remarks to his congregation stand in stark contrast to what we are hearing from the Religious Left, the secular progressives and the so-called "moderate Muslim community," all of whom are essentially saying the same thing.

Jeffress says Christians must:

1. Pray for the victims.

2. Do more than pray--Act.

3. Lay aside political correctness, and get real.

4. Take forceful action.

5. Tell the truth about Islam.

This is the link to his remarks last Sunday morning to the 12,000 member church and his worldwide radio and television audience.

His remarks are 6 minutes. I strongly encourage you to watch the video.

The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on a bill today that would prevent any refugees from Syria or Iraq from being admitted to the United States unless the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and Director of National Intelligence can certify to Congress that each refugee does not pose a security threat.

A number of conservatives are already saying Ryan's bill is merely a smoke screen designed to give lip service while refusing to defund the program.

They say he has no intention of restricting the flow of Muslim refugees.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Fearless.


  1. When a thief comes to break into a house, is the owner of the house supposed to say, "There's nothing I should do, for I don't want to offend him?" Yet this seems to be the sort of thing that some people in our government want from us. What ever happened to America?

  2. What forceful action do you recommend?

    1. I heard Russia bombed a lot of trucks that supplied Isis with fuel after their place got bombed out of the sky. That was their response. And I heard that France went into some action also. Where is the US? What are we doing?

    2. Gary and the other pastor are talking to individuals. What forceful action should individuals take, Gary?

  3. Open borders, more handouts, accept anything and anyone, and stricter gun control so if they ever come in to take over a crowded theater here in the US, there won't be anyone carrying a concealed handgun and a few magazines who could take out a bad guy or two. Easy to hide in a crowd of people I should think, not such easy targets, hiding out in the crowd, I think.

  4. What the world should be seeing at least from a "Christian" nation such as the US right now, is a massive truth campaign against Isis, broadcasting it in their language, letting everyone know, that those killers who killed so many in Paris, didn't get away with anything. Those killers could have been alive today, enjoying life, had they decided to not go through with their faulty and poorly thought out plan. Now, instead of enjoying life, they are no doubt suffering for their actions to an angry God who will take vengeance upon evil doers, or they may be in eternal damnation for their sins which they have already done. They might be in hell right now being tormented in a place they can not escape and in a place where they can find no peace or relief from all sorts of anguish, and in such a place they will have no hope. Either way one looks at it, it didn't turn out very well for them and all because of a few bad decisions on their part.

    What reward could anyone possibly expect to receive for killing innocent people who were guilty of nothing more than enjoying some time away from home with friends? Who would even think of rewarding behavior like that? Certainly not anyone who created so much good in the world. Certainly not the creator of the sun and the moon and the stars, and the one who sends the rain and the sunshine, for he will not be a part of encouraging such evil, would he? It's a sad thing because these killers wasted their lives for nothing, and now, they have nothing to show that's of any value for what they did, nothing at all, for there is no virtue whatsoever for what they did, and they brought it upon themselves. Those they killed are likely in a far better place, are they not? A poorly thought out plan can have no good success, and in the end, only misery for the ones who thought it out carried it out.

  5. Jeffress' video clearly shows the difference between individual and national responsibilities.

    1. It seems we are all in this together.

      Job 34:29
      When he giveth quietness, who then can make trouble? and when he hideth his face, who then can behold him? whether if be done against a nation, or against a man only.

  6. Let's put a Christian president in the White House. Maybe America can be thought of as a Christian nation again.
