    Sarah Pulliam Bailey at the Washington Post reports this morning that a handful of conservative evangelical leaders have issued coordinated statements supporting Donald Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner as he faces allegations of improper contacts with Russian government officials. Those defending Kushner include some of Trump’s earliest and strongest supporters on the Religious Right, including Southern Baptist pastor Robert Jeffress, Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. and prosperity gospel preacher Paula White. Also included in the group is Samuel Rodriquez of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, who has criticized Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric while simultaneously giving Trump political cover:...

  • Where are the Bold Authoritative Preachers Today?

    Westside Christian Fellowshihp ^ | Jan 15, 2011 | Shane Idleman
    A friend recently asked, “Where are those with uncompromising power and God-given authority in our pulpits today?” His statement reminded me of the desperate need for passionate, spirit-filled preachers focused on pleasing God rather than man. Our culture’s false perception of God as a cosmic ball of love, or a doting grandfather desperately needs to be challenged. Unfortunately, difficult truths are often compromised, watered-down, or avoided altogether in the hope of “not offending,” “securing an audience,” or building a “mega-ministry.” As a result, the church is a mile wide but only an inch deep; judgment is never mentioned, repentance is...

    On their fourth consecutive night on the streets, Dallas' anti-Trump protesters took aim at a concrete target with their anger: Dallas' First Baptist Church. First Baptist's pastor, Robert Jeffress was square in the middle of Trump's victory party in New York City on Tuesday night. He earned the spot: He has been the president-elect's liaison to the evangelical community from virtually the start of the campaign. In October 2015, he led a group of pastors to Trump tower, laying hands on Trump and gleefully telling Fox News that "anybody that was in that meeting would've left there, first of all,...

    It's Election Day, America - and there's not a thing I can tell you that will lead you to change your vote. You've made up your mind and that's that. That being said, your vote today has consequences. Those of you voting for Donald Trump are voting to secure our borders, rid the country of illegals and eradicate the scourge of Obamacare. You're voting to protect the Constitution and save unborn babies. You're voting for somebody who's going to stand up for the American working man - somebody who is going to make America great again. On the other...

    A Dallas-based LGBT resource center is calling on Dallas leaders to cut ties with a controversial North Texas pastor who compared gay-friendly business advocates to ISIS. First Baptist Church of Dallas' Senior Pastor Robert Jeffress made the remarks on a radio program last week when he was discussing president Obama's transgender directive to public schools. "I've said often the greatest thread to freedom of religion in America is not ISIS, it's the chamber of commerce," the pastor said on the radio. "I mean, it's the businesses that say to our representatives, 'Oh, don't pass laws like that. Don't pass these...

This was first reported by NBC 5's media partners at The Dallas Morning News. ... "Look, pro lifers who criticize that comment either are doing so because they really don't believe their rhetoric that abortion is murder, or they are so blinded by hatred for Donald Trump they are not able to think logically," said Jeffress. Asked if he thinks a woman should be punished for getting an abortion,...

    Robert Jeffress, pastor of the 12,000 member First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, is rebuking talk radio host Glenn Beck for his recent criticism of evangelical Christians who live in the South and are not supporting Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% ’s campaign to secure the Republican Presidential nomination. “All throughout the South the Evangelicals are not listening to their God,” Beck said at a rally in Utah on Monday. “Beck’s wacko comment speaks for itself,” Jeffress tells Breitbart News. “However, by using the phrase ‘their God’ to refer to the God we evangelical Christians worship, Beck is finally admitting...

Yes, in reaction to the Pope suggesting Trump might not be Christian, Jeffress said, "I think the Pope needs to ask Donald Trump's forgiveness for making such an outlandish statement."

    President Obama President Obama isn’t the Antichrist – but he sure is “paving the way” for him, said some Christian evangelists who’ve been watching the White House in biblically prophetic light with alarm. “Although President Obama is certainly not the Antichrist, his policies are paving the way for the Antichrist,” said pastor Robert James Jeffress, Jr., of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas, Christian Today reported. “While I am not suggesting that President Obama is the Antichrist, the fact that he was able to propose such a sweeping change in God’s law and still win re-election by a...

    Two of Texas's most popular megachurch pastors, T.D. Jakes of The Potter's House and Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church, Dallas, reflected dueling positions on the state's controversial voter identification law. Jakes dismissed it as "needless" while Jeffress argued that the law is necessary ahead of Tuesday's mid-term elections. The Texas legislature passed Senate Bill 14 (SB 14) into law in 2011 in a bid to curb voter fraud. It requires voters seeking to cast their ballots in person to present photo identification, such as a Texas driver's or gun license, a military ID or a passport according to votetexas.gov....
