Pastor: Churches Harboring Illegals Don't Follow 'Jesus of the Bible'

By    |   Sunday, 12 July 2015 10:20 PM

Churches should not be offering sanctuary to illegal immigrants, but turning them over to authorities, says Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas.

Though some congregations have helped protect illegal immigrants from deportation, they could be "harboring illegal immigrants who may be criminals," Jeffress warned Sunday on "Fox & Friends Weekend."

"Look, a lot of these liberal churches that harbor illegal immigrants who are criminals say they are following the example of Jesus," Jeffress said. "The only problem is they are following the Jesus of their imagination rather than the Jesus of the Bible."

Jesus was not "this wimpy little guy who walked around munching sunflower seeds and saying nice things to people," Jeffress said. "The real Jesus of the Bible said, 'Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s,'" he continued. "That is: Obey the government."

The "real Jesus" is concerned about the death of Kate Steinle, the San Francisco woman shot to death, reportedly by an illegal Mexican immigrant, Jeffress said, just as he is about "the poverty and plight of immigrants."
