Robert Jeffress used to be a respectable man. He used to be a well-known conservative pastor who acted like he believed the gospel and believed in conservative biblical morals and values.
Robert Jeffress is the pastor of Southern Baptist megachurch, First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas and is also a well-known Fox News contributor. Jeffress is an avid Trump supporter — which is fine, but he appears to have done so at the expense of the gospel.
This author is also a supporter of Donald Trump, and Donald Trump is largely credited with the unprecedented speed at which vaccines were brought to the market for the coronavirus. One the one hand, Trump can be rightly praised for “making it happen,” yet, on the other hand, Christians should have serious pause about the use of these vaccines.
All of the vaccines currently available were either produced, tested, or researched using aborted fetal tissue. And yet, like another pro-Trump Evangelical, Franklin Graham, Jeffress is Evangelizing for the use of these vaccines. Last week, we reported that Graham ignorantly and absurdly asserted that if Jesus were here today, he’d use the vaccine. Of course, that was stupid.
Today, Jeffress says that despite the fact that these vaccines are produced using aborted fetuses, he wouldn’t refuse it because, like Jesus’ death on the cross, good comes from unjust killing.
Jeffress asserts that “we would never abort babies to provide a vaccine,” but that he is fine with using aborted babies that were “already aborted.” Apparently, Jeffress is not aware of the illegal trade of aborted fetus body parts by the abortion industry–a Planned Parenthood official admitted this under oath. Is Jeffress also aware that the entire abortion industry revolved around the abortionists’ ability to sell these body parts? And these body parts are largely sold for scientific research.
It goes something like this:
- A woman finds out she’s pregnant and she isn’t sure if she wants to keep the baby.
- The woman visits an abortion clinic.
- The abortion clinic often lies to the patient and tells them the pregnancy is not viable anyways.
- Woman asks questions.
- Abortion industry lobbies government to limit real choice.
- Woman is pressured by abortion clinic to kill her child so the clinic can sell the parts.
- Scientific research, including vaccine research, is conducted using these parts.
And yet, Jeffress tries to turn this into a picture of the gospel to justify the use of unethical medicines created using murdered children at the hands of the abortion for scientific research lobby.
