Pastor Robert Jeffress Issues Statement on Today’s Shooting at The First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs

“We pray that the members of First Baptist Church, Sutherland Springs, will experience the promise of Psalm 34:18: ‘The Lord is close to the broken-hearted.’”

DALLAS — Dr. Robert Jeffress, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Dallas, releases the following statement in response to the mass shooting at First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs:

Today’s horrific church shooting is every pastor’s worst nightmare and is proof of the reality of evil. Although the Bible never diminishes the pain of evil, it does promise that one day when Christ returns, evil will be defeated forever. Until that time, we pray that the members of First Baptist Church, Sutherland Springs, will experience the promise of Psalm 34:18: “The Lord is close to the broken-hearted.”
