Jeffress: I Disagree With Max Lucado About Trump Not Being Right Type Of Leader

October 21, 2016Oct 21, 2016

San Antonio megachurch pastor and author Max Lucado says he'll never disclose who he's voting for, according to an NPR interview, but he's certainly has long shown reservations about supporting Donald Trump. He's making it clear that, no matter who wins, he believes that once the election is over it'll be time for our nation to unite again and for its people to stop being so mean to each other.

In other words, he's looking for peace after the storm. Dallas megachurch pastor and political commentator Robert Jeffress doesn't entirely agree.

In a companion NPR last Sunday, Jeffress acknowledged Trump's past sins but emphasized that Trump is a leader "who is able to fight back" and has "a real quality that every leader needs, and that's resiliency."

And then he said, "I see a lot of common ground with Max Lucado. I love Max Lucado. And, you know, I've disagreed with his point of view. When I'm looking for a leader who's going to fight ISIS and keep this nation secure, I don't want some meek and mild leader or somebody who's going to turn the other cheek. I've said I want the meanest, toughest SOB I can find to protect this nation. And so that's why Trump's tone doesn't bother me."

But he added, "But having said that, I do agree with Max Lucado. There needs to be unity, especially in the body of Christ."

What do you think about this?
