Christian Response to Paris Attacks is “Borders and Bombs”
“As Christians we should be praying for the victims and their families,” said Jeffress, “but we need to do more than pray. It is time for us to lay aside political correctness and identify the belief system that is responsible for these horrific acts – radical Islam.”
Dr. Robert Jeffress went on to explain that Christians often confuse their individual response and the response of government. Christians as individuals are called to love and pray for their enemies, but government has a different God-given responsibility to protect its citizens through whatever means necessary, including securing the borders and punishing evil doers.
Dr. Jeffress said, “It is absolutely impossible to defeat an enemy you are unwilling to identify…if we do not confront and defeat the evil of radical Islam, the evil of radical Islam is going to confront and defeat us.” Dr. Jeffress concluded by calling upon government to “do whatever is necessary militarily to rid this world of the cancer called radical Islam.”
