DALLAS — Dr. Robert Jeffress, the senior pastor of First Baptist Dallas, releases the following statement in response to Tuesday’s terrorist attack in New York City:
“Yesterday’s deadly attack in New York City sadly reminds us of the continued horrors of radical Islamic terrorism. These cowards continue to use violence to advance their cause, but we know they will never be successful in deterring us from our faith, our institutions and our way of life. America will always emerge stronger and more determined to defeat terrorists wherever they live, no matter what barbaric method they use to take innocent lives. We must unite as a nation in prayer for the grieving families of the victims, and in prayer for our President, our leaders at the state and local levels, and our first responders who time and again, charge into harm’s way on our behalf.”
