Dr. Robert Jeffress is the senior pastor of the 11,000-member First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas. Dr. Jeffress has been honored with the Daniel Award for his steadfast commitment and boldness in proclaiming the uncompromising Word of God.
The following statements are extracts from an interview Jeffress did with Bill O’Reilly on Fox News.
Now here is an SBC minister that I can follow:
“I think one reason is a lot of Christian leaders have the wrong idea about Jesus,” Jeffress replied when asked the question. “They see Jesus as this little, wimpy guy who walked around plucking daisies and eating birdseed and saying nice things, but never doing anything controversial. The fact is, Jesus did confront his culture with truth — and he ended up being crucified because of it.”
“Wimpy pastors produce wimpy Christians — and that is why we are losing this culture war,” he emphasized.
“I believe it’s time for pastors to say, You know, I don’t care about controversy, I don’t care whether I’m going to lose church members, I don’t care about building a big church. I’m going to stand for truth regardless of what happens.”
