Easy Listening

So sad how he can't bring himself to stand up for the truth of the gospel. Watch the whole interview (this is only a portion) and keep tally marks of how often Joel answers "I don't know" when asked specific questions about the Bible.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
-John 14:6

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false
teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even
denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift

-2 Peter 2:1

Wow Ginger, he is so wishy washy. I am glad you only had a portion cuz I cringe to watch the whole thing. That is why his church is so large because he is trying to make "people" happy, not our God. Doesn't matter how much we read into the bible but how clear can it be to get to heaven. It seems like how to get to heaven seems to be a sore subject and preacher love beating around the bush with that.

Absolutely crazy.

Amber said...

I'm pretty sure that's a really old video and that he's apologized for it.

Julia said...

He did Amber. It's years old and he said that he was nervous and was afraid he was going to offend someone but that he's learned from the experience.

Ginger said...

Unfortunately, his views haven't changed. See recent sermons. He may have learned from experience, but he hasn't embraced the biblical gospel either.
The Bible is very offensive to those who don't believe. As a pastor, he really should know that. :(
