Trivia

On 29 September 2019, the pastor spoke out again to oppose the Democrat effort to impeach President Donald Trump.

He said:

“I do want to make this prediction this morning: If the Democrats are successful in removing the president from office, I’m afraid it will cause a Civil War-like fracture in this nation.”

Later that day, President Trump tweeted a paraphrase of Robert’s words but removed the word “prediction” from his tweet.

He thinks that President Obama paved the way for the Antichrist. During an interview, Robert stated:

“For the first time in history, a president of our country has openly proposed altering one of society’s most fundamental laws: that marriage should be between a man and a woman.”

He continued:

”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 reelection by a comfortable margin illustrates how a future world leader will be able to oppose God’s laws without any repercussions.”

Dr. Jeffress runs 3 miles on a treadmill five days per week and watches what he eats.

”The city shouldn’t spend tax dollars to teach children that homosexual lifestyles are acceptable.”

In 2008, in his sermon “Gay Is Not OK,” Robert cited Romans 1:27 – “And the males likewise gave up natural relations with females and burned with lust for one another. Males did shameful things with males and thus received in their own persons the due penalty for their perversity.”

“But if you really believe there is only one way to Heaven, and it’s through faith in Christ, why wouldn’t I want to warn everyone I could?”

“Just read the Bible, God will not allow sin to go unpunished, and he certainly won’t allow the sacrifice of children to go unpunished.”

“If there really is no Hell, then it’s judgmental and unloving to tell people what they believe is wrong.”

“I grew up here, I was saved here, baptized here, ordained here, married here, preached my first sermon here, after which I served as the youth pastor here for seven years.”

“Surely, God doesn’t use pagans to bring judgment upon his own people, does he?”

I listen to Dr Jeffress nearly every day on Pathway to Victory. I believe Dr Jeffress teaches THE BIBLE and all its truths. My only concern is that I've heard that because of his growing fame, he can seem to be a bit elevated in his opinion about himself. Love the teaching of the truths of the Bible but not a fan of possible lack of humility.

He always gives all credit, honor and glory to the Lord. He is a truly down-to-earth person, and if he ever did start to get a “big head,” his wife and daughters would put an end to such nonsense in a New York minute!

I am a Pentecostal Pastor of a small congregation in Lithia Springs Ga. I have learned much from Dr. Jeffress and his teachings. I receive no salary from the church but believe that this great man of God deserves EVERY dollar he receives. People do not realize the responsibility that this man has on his shoulders. God bless and keep him for many more years. To you that gripe about his compensation, one soul is worth MORE than anything he receives.
