The most surprising Robert Jeffress quotes that are easy to memorize and remember
If the universalists are correct in saying that everyone is going to be in heaven regardless of what they believe, or the pluralists are correct that all religions lead to the same god, then the horrific death of Jesus Christ was completely unnecessary.
Unlike many people today, Jesus did not teach that all religions in the world are simply different paths up the same mountain of truth that leads to God. Jesus could not have been more clear: he offers the only way to heaven.
In 1980, evangelicals overwhelmingly elected a candidate who was a known womanizer when he was in Hollywood. He would be the first divorced president in U.S. history. His name was Ronald Reagan. And when evangelicals voted for Reagan, they weren't endorsing womanizing. They weren't endorsing divorce. They were endorsing Reagan's policies.
A 2008 poll of 35,000 Americans revealed that 57% of Evangelical church attenders believe that many religions can lead to eternal life.
The willingness of God to sacrifice his Son to reconcile us to himself is a demonstration of his love for us.
I share five scriptural insights that lead me to the conclusion that those who are incapable of trusting in Christ on their own are still welcomed into heaven the same way you and I are welcomed into heaven: by the grace of God.
When I'm looking for a leader who's going to fight ISIS and keep America secure, I don't want some meek and mild leader or somebody who's going to turn the other cheek.
I think if Donald Trump should become commander in chief, we all want that in a leader, somebody who is able to fight back.
By voting for a candidate, we're not endorsing a particular lifestyle.
We're simply voting on the issues.
We're in danger of losing an even more foundational belief of Christianity: that salvation is only possible through faith in Jesus Christ.
"The way of Cain" describes any religious system that attempts to earn God's favor by works and rituals rather than reliance on God's grace.
God's love means that our Creator desires to have a relationship with us.
God's holiness prevents him from having fellowship with us and, instead, demands the outpouring of his anger against us.
If it's true that Christ was correct in saying that faith in himself is the only way to heaven, then sharing that truth is a demonstration of love, not hatred, toward unbelievers.
The only reason Christ submitted himself to the horrendous experience of bearing the sins of the entire world is because his death provided the only way for reconciliation with God.
One of the consistent themes you'll find throughout the Bible is that God will always provide the necessary information about Jesus Christ to someone who sincerely desires to receive that revelation.
I think Donald Trump showed a real quality that every leader needs, and that's resiliency.
Donald Trump redeemed himself politically.
Any tool that helps instill God's Word in the lives of people is something I can enthusiastically endorse!
I believe in such a thing called mental illness that leads to some evil.
Nobody will be sent to hell for rejecting a gospel they've never heard.
Every parent has the responsibility to cultivate his child's heart.
If we leave our children's heart alone, they tend to become like a garden, overgrown with evil and with sin.
While love is one of God's attributes, it's not his only attribute. God is also holy and just.
Christianity alone teaches that our only way for reconciliation with God is by his grace that is received through faith.
It is true Christians have done terrible things throughout history.
But they've always been acting in opposition to their Christian faith. There are no New Testament verses that say, Kill unbelievers.
Every parent's first responsibility is to teach his child that there is a God to whom he's accountable and that God has certain commands that we're obligated to obey.

But I think when you deny the reality of evil, you want to use medicine to solve every problem, and it doesn't solve every problem.
There needs to be unity, especially in the body of Christ.
Christians lost the battle in the public square over gay marriage because, frankly, we were outthought, outfought, and outmarketed on the issue.
Of the seven billion people who reside on planet Earth, only 25% could, in the broadest sense of the word, be classified as "Christian" (and the percentage who have personally trusted in Christ for salvation is much smaller), meaning that over five billion people in the world are destined to hell if indeed Christ offers the exclusive path for salvation. To many people, such a claim is offensive.
I think that's why Donald Trump continues to enjoy evangelical support.
They're not endorsing necessarily his lifestyle. What they're saying is this is a binary choice between one candidate, Donald Trump - who is pro-life, pro-religious liberty, pro-conservative justices of the Supreme Court - and another candidate, Hillary Clinton, who has an opposite view on all of those issues.
When commanded by the Jewish officials to quit invoking the name of Jesus Christ, Peter responded, "And there is salvation in no one else: for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). Remember, Peter was a Jew, speaking to a group of Jews, claiming that there is no salvation for Jewish people - or anyone else - apart from faith in Jesus Christ.
"The way of Cain" says there are many paths that lead to God rather than one path.
Jesus clearly taught that the majority of humanity will spend eternity in hell, and only a few will find the exclusive way to salvation.

Abel's sacrifice was accepted by God because it was made according to God's instructions. Cain, however, tried to approach God in his own way and was rejected by God (Genesis 4:3-5). From that point on, Cain became a symbol of those who try to approach God on their own terms.
Various religions offer a variety of theories about life, death, and eternity.
And yet, as different as all religions are, they share one common characteristic: they teach that the way to be reconciled to God is through works and rituals.
The cross of Jesus Christ represents the intersection of God's love and God's holiness.
Do you really want to put a woman into the White House who supports the greatest assault on women of all? And that is murdering them in the womb before they have a chance to be born.
If trusting in Christ is the only way to be saved one has to wonder about infants, small children, and those who are child-like who are incapable of exercising faith in Christ.
I'll certainly be praying for Hillary Clinton, too.
The idea that there is only one way to be reconciled with God has its origins in the Old Testament.
If all, or the majority of humanity, end up in heaven, then Jesus made a mistake in his pronouncement that only a few will enter through the "narrow gate" into heaven. And if Jesus was wrong about this, then one could assume that he may have been wrong about a number of other issues of which he spoke.
Those of us who are Christians believe Jesus Christ is the only one who can redeem us.
I've said I want the meanest, toughest SOB I can find to protect America.
And so that's why Trump's tone doesn't bother me.
"The way of Cain" refers to any individual who attempts to approach God on his or her own terms rather than on God's terms.
