Michael A. Walrond Jr., one of New York City’s most influential pastors who leads the more than 10,000-member First Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem, is coming under fire online for telling his congregants that the belief that Jesus is the only way to Heaven is “insanity.”
I don’t need to tell most you that Jesus is the only way. But in case you forgot, let’s take a quick look at what the word of God says;
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
The bible also warms us that in the last days many shall grow cold, depart from the faith, true teachings, become lovers of themselves and lean to what their itchy ears want to hear, therefore some of these things that are happening to the church should come as no surprise.
1 Timothy 4:1
“The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.”
The bible also warns us that;
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
It is important that you heed the word of the Lord and also to be careful as to whom you give your ear to, because many will come to you claiming to come in His Name and yet God does not know them.
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many [a]miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’
Walrond’s words further went like this “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,”.
2 Timothy 4:2-4
2: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage–with great patience and careful instruction.
3: For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
4: They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.
I encourage you all to choose the truth today.
God bless you
