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