Key Quotes From Bob Roberts Jr.
“[Earlier in my life], evangelism was more of a project for me than it was a lifestyle.”
“I can’t stand the word ‘interfaith’…Evangelicals often are not a part of interfaith conversations because we’re viewed as bigots, because we’re exclusivist with reference to what we believe is the gospel.”
“I like the word ‘multifaith,’ and the reason I do is that multifaith says, you don’t have to compromise your faith. You don’t have to give up your faith. You have to just be truthful and honest about who you are and say it in the kindest and most loving way.”
“I think when we begin to see the image of God in everybody, then instead of calling them out as sinners…we’re challenging them to live up to who they are, their identity as how they were created in Christ.”
“I share my faith all the time. Eighty percent of the time I’m with non-Christians.”
“When an imam accepts Christ, a lot of people come to faith in Christ.”
“These people come to faith in Christ because of the message and the messenger…[but] a lot of times we don’t have time to build a relationship with them.”
