Jeffress: Wheaton debacle indicative of larger problem


A well-known Southern Baptist pastor is concerned about the message Wheaton College is sending by settling with a professor whose theology wasn't in line with the college or with scripture.

Wheaton professor Dr. Larycia Hawkins made waves at the college and around the county recently when she wore an Islamic head covering to a press conference and said Christians and Muslims "worship the same God." After some wrangling and noise among Wheaton students, the college agreed to part with Hawkins on good terms and establish a scholarship in her name.
Dr. Robert Jeffress, senior pastor at First Baptist Church-Dallas, has some concern about Wheaton's decision but mostly about the influence it might have elsewhere in the Christian community.
