Pastor Says “Jesus Is The Only Way” Will Become Hate Speech
Jim Bakker Show ^ | 6-19-14 | Jason Wert

Posted on 06/21/2014 1:18:59 PM PDT by ReformationFan

Mark 13:13 “You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”

One of the opening speakers at the 42nd PCA General Assembly told those in attendance that America is rapidly progressing to the point where declaring Jesus the only way to eternal life will be considered spreading hate.

“It will be difficult to say in this culture ‘Jesus is the only way’,” Pastor Bryan Chapell warned. “That will be interpreted as hate speech.”

Chapell said that sticking to truth will be a point of contention with the world.

“If you continue to stand ‘for Christ alone’ in a culture that calls that bigotry,” he said, “that will be the issue that presses us in the future.”

Chapell, the former chancellor of the Covenant Theological Seminary, said that pluralism is becoming a major enemy of God’s church and that people of faith need to join together on issues so they can fight that enemy together.

Ron Taylor, the stated clerk of the PCA GA, agreed with Chapell’s assessment. He said we cannot forget the true enemies of the church are the world, the flesh and the devil.

True words from Bryan Chapell, the man elected this week as moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in America, one of the good and Biblically orthodox Presbyterian denominations not the apostate PCUSA. I figure John 14:6 will become even more controversial in our culture than Matthew 19:4-6.

It’s what it says in the Bible. We’re just repeating what it says. And how do the Muslims get to Heaven. That’s note “hate speech” too?

That's why you turn back this whole unconstitutional federal interference with "discrimination" (freedom of choice) at the door. NO VACANCY. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.

The federal government has no legitimate constitutional authority to interfere with any person's right to discriminate (freedom to choose).

Well the feds have been allowed to interfere and should be turned back and shown the door. If not, then what this pastor says is absolutely true. Shutting down free exercise of religion, especially the Gospel of the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, is what is really behind all this unconstitutional government coercion

It will be outlawed. That is what is coming.

Bakker kept selling people food to survive the 7-year Tribulation.

There will be very few left in the last half of it that are believers.

To quote Girlfriend “What difference does it make?”

The LORD Jesus Christ never said “Only say “Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life” when its legal in man’s law to say that” John 14:6

He said “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.” Matthew 24:9

It IS hate speech, but according to libtards, it is GOOD hate speech. There is good hate speech and there is bad hate speech. Only libtards are qualified to make the determination. /S

Our minister stated no long ago during a sermon that he expects for Christians to be imprisoned in the United States if not in his lifetime, soon thereafter. I truly fear for my children and grandchildren.

The pastor is right. The Lord told us we’d be persecuted if we follow Him. But to suffer such things for His sake is a blessing.

With Obummer in power it will be hate speech. He thinks he’s the only way.
Oh, I don’t think Muslims believe in ‘heaven’, they believe in paradise where they have 11 virgins waiting for them.

You’re so right. Sometimes when everything seems to be falling apart it’s hard not to worry or be afraid and remember to turn everything over to God.

It’s “in the book”, in almost all versions, in almost all manners of speech.

It is the tenet of those who derive what they do in meetings, from the Book of Acts.

For those that do NOT follow the Abrahamic faiths, it won’t matter to them, unless there are folks that “as the book says”, makes them envious of what those other folks have inside them”.

He’s absolutely right. But he left out the lawsuits, throwing people out of their livelihood, and jail time.
