I am really getting tired of continuing to call out different pastors and churches when they preach heresy.
Did I already tell you that in another post? I probably did. I can’t remember anymore.
But here’s another one:
That title is mine and not the true title of the article.
The gist of the article is that Michael A. Walrond Jr., pastor of First Corinthian Baptist Church, has preached to his congregation that Jesus being the only way is ‘insanity.’ Here is part of that sermon from about two weeks ago:
“There was a time when you would see people in the pulpit say, ‘well, if you don’t believe in Jesus you going to Hell. That’s insanity in many ways because that is not what Jesus even believes. And so the key is you believe in God. And whatever your path is to God I celebrate that. Personally I celebrate that,” he said to a smattering of applause. “Again, we have enough in this world that divides us we need to find those things that bring us together. And if God cannot bring us closer together then something is wrong, not with God but in how we think we know God and understand God.”
I’m pretty sure Jesus believes that He is the only way to the Father. He said it Himself:
“I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6 KJV).
There is no mistaking what was said in that passage. The very fact that this pastor misquoted the Bible and the words of Jesus disturbs me.
This comes straight out of the ‘tickle your ears’ church. A statement like this is telling those who hear it that it’s okay to believe what you want. Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, etc. will all go to Heaven. We know that’s not true but, unfortunately, this pastor does not.
And there are others our there just like him.
This is a perversion of the Gospel and it’s designed to keep the people in the seats rather than teach them the truth. These pastors should be growing their flock with the truth rather than a lie.
If your church teaches this or anything close to it, run for the door and don’t look back. That’s how I feel about it. I want to know the truth. I want to know what’s coming. I want to know what is in store for us in the last days and I want myself and my family to be ready for it.
Unfortunately, this type of doctrine isn’t it.
Author’s Note: I wanted to add that we should pray for these pastors who preach messages like this. We should pray that God will help them see the error of their doctrine and that they will change.
