Paul Washer Lordship teacher & Accuser of the Brethren

Part 1 – Paul Washer

Today I heard Paul Washer had a heart attack and is in critical condition.  I do not know the outcome, if he lives, I pray he will examine the gospel he has been teaching others, and be sure that he understands THE gospel, so that he might not perish.  Pray for that.  Pray for any who follow after him to look to the Word for the truth, to be noble (Acts 17:11).

PW-shockingI am starting a blog here on Lordship (Loadship) teacher Paul Washer.  It is spur of the moment, so it will be added to.  It’s been on my mind many times to do so.  I know this will not be very pleasant likely, as some feel he is sincere, (and he may be, but if so, sincerely wrong). I do not judge the man to be sincere, or insincere either way.  

I am only here to deal with the doctrine in the light of God’s Word. Paul Washer says an awful lot of things that the Scriptures do not say. And he uses an awful lot of God’s Word, in a way that doesn’t line up with the truth.  Case in point, this picture below on his Facebook quotes page.

DontPrayForStrengthToNotCommitSin

BUT IN DIRECT CONTRADICTION TO WHAT PAUL WASHER SAYS ABOVE, THE BIBLE SAYS: Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.  Matt 26:41

Every time we talk to God about sin in our lives, we are praying.  These types of banners are typical of Washer’s accusatory and holier-than-thou style.  Is this preaching the Word of God?  Or is it preaching the words of Paul Washer?

I am putting this post up just as a beginning outline of some things I will cover.  The first time I saw Washer, I was disturbed by his teaching and not in a good way.  The video I saw part of and turned off was his ‘shocking youth message‘.    I have heard the whole thing, and we will deal with the message on this continuing series Lord willing.

Later I heard a ‘gospel’ message that wasn’t the gospel I know from the Bible.   Many more times, I listened to his messages, each time, not the Word of God I knew.  I was upset as I saw many following after him.  Funny, the underlying factor always seemed to be, “you’re not saved if you haven’t done THIS or you haven’t done THAT“. And ‘this or that’ that he was using, wasn’t once, “did you believe on the Lord Jesus Christ”?  

We do expose sin in the church, but what about the world?  Yes indeed Paul the apostle said God commanded men everywhere to repent, but these men will have you believe that this equates to ‘repent from sin’ (it does not) and it is their job to go out and judge the world and judge people who say they have believed the gospel, and judge them to not be saved.

What does the Bible say?

For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? But them that are without God judgeth.  1 Cor 5:12-13a

In this same chapter, Paul judged the Corinthians for not disciplining, nor mourning over this grave sexual immorality.  But he never judged them to be unsaved, or even suggested it.  He gave over the carnal sinner to Satan for the destruction of his flesh BUT…. Paul (by the Holy Spirit) judged him to BE SAVED)…

So Paul Washer… 

Are you to judge whether someone is a false convert?

Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.  1 Cor 4:5

Who are you to judge another’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand.  Rom 14:4

exposing sin

There are many things I’ll be talking about, one will be the very sad and empty testimony of his wife’s ‘conversion’.  The 12 years she went through being accused while listening to him preach, and not once hearing from her testimony, that she came out with truth, but more accusation.  Tragic.

I’ll also be discussing his continual accusation of the brethren.  And if Paul Washer is saved, we need to talk about what his remedy should be if he believes someone is not saved.  He uses his own remedy.  Can we prove we are saved in the fleshly works?  Whose job it is to convict the world? (John 16:9-11).

JudgeNotLestAnother thing we’ll talk about is his incorrect usage of the passage in Matthew 7 regarding the false prophets. Does Jesus say in His Word we will know Christians” by their fruit?  Where is that?  This is NOT rightly dividing God’s Word, nor trembling at His Word Mr. Washer (2 Tim 2:15; Isaiah 66:2)

He misuses this passage spoken to false prophets to instill fear into believers, (or worse — keep the lost — lost).   He never really preaches the good news of the gospel to give them hope, but a ‘gospel’ of man-centered works.  He also wrongly defines the narrow way, and instead of applying that way to being Jesus, He applies it instead to our works, as if a person’s walk is the narrow way.

He and John MacArthur do similar things.  It was hearing Paul Washer that inspired me to look up John MacArthur’s teaching on the same passage.  And it birthed the blog here on just one of his ‘teachings’ of the narrow way which is the ‘only road to heaven‘ but which consists of nothing but a long list of man-centered works almost identical in style to Paul Washer.  But, birds of a feather…

I do pray you will be watching for it, as I am able, and if you have any questions about specific things, feel free to ask.  I will try to answer any sincere questions as we go along.  All others who are here to argue, accuse, berate, I cannot allow to continue. Sound speech that cannot be condemned and reasoning with the Word.

  • Sounds good Holly. I’m am also getting ready to do a review of one of his books. Should be done hopefully in a month or so.

    Here are a few of my thoughts, Holly.

    • Waiting to hear them 🙂

      Evidently, they didn’t post… I hope you saved them.

        Ok, I’ll try again. I was just bringing over what I had posted on the other side. I listened about 6 years ago as I struggled to truly seek God and truth, and at first I thought I had found it in him, Paul Washer. But, as I read my Bible and did a search and found him to be a 5 point or perhaps a Hyper-Calvinist, I truly ran from his teachings. He is a Pharisee and totally a false teacher and if he has ever really read God’s word then he is guilty of falsely dividing the Word. He believes no one can be saved unless God supernaturally regenerates them so they can believe. I could post tons of videos and quotes, but suffice it to say that he is teaching a false gospel, one that if attained gives no assurance and he says that we must continue repenting from our sins in order to really be saved. Lie! Christ died once for all our sins, Christ cannot die again. Truly, Calvinists are credited with OSAS, but what they believe is not what we think of as a free gift of Salvation that is forever, no, their’s must be earned, by continuing to progress and becoming more holy. Paul Washer says that you can measure your Salvation by whether you have progressed or if you are just standing still or falling back. That is a lie! So, you are very nice Holly, and you have not said this, but anyone who is preaching something that is not true and will not save, is not speaking from God. I could go on………..but I am just so upset over this man and his false message and how so many agree with him and support him. Ok, I will stop now.

  • Amen Enid, you are speaking boldly, what he speaks is a lie. Thank you for being so straightforward, sometimes I am not as bold as I should be, wanting to be soft spoken, but Paul Washer is a false teacher who will destroy the assurance of many people. Men like him are subtle, they ‘seem’ to preach the Bible but he does not rightly divide God’s Word.

    Thank you for your truthfulness, in Him!

  • So sad to see, so many people have bought his false gospel, we have street preachers preaching his message on the streets, here in Australia, but you cannot tell them. Deception is such a powerful thing, doctrines of demons that sit behind these false doctrines. It brings division into the body, then we look like the bad ones for speaking it out. We are accused of being unloving and judgemental when we excercise our discernment. It truly is the death of biblical discernment, and the wolves now have free reign in the church. I can’t understand how people are in churches anymore, other than the free gracers who preach the gospel with clarity. The hour is late, and it is truly spiritually dark in the apostate times we live in.

    May the lord grant us boldness, that we not cower to the fear of man. That we rescue some from the clutches and deceptions of Satan.

    I have not read your entire article yet as I am stuck at the beginning with your reply to the first Paul Washer quote:
    “Look, God does not command you to pray to be strong enough to do something that He has told you not to do”

    Your reply: BUT THE BIBLE SAYS: Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matt 26:41

    I cannot see how this Washer guy is wrong. In fact the Bible verse backs him up totally! Surely “God does NOT command us to pray to be strong enough to do something that He (GOD) has told us NOT to do” – because we are to “Watch and pray” that we will “NOT enter into temptation” because our “flesh is weak”!

    To indicate that Washer is wrong is to say the God asks us to pray to be strong enough to do something that He has told us NOT to do!

    Also can you put some links in to the quotes so that we can cross reference for context. Thanks

    • The quotes are 100% in their entirety found on Paul Washer’s FaceBook page :), thank you for drawing that to my attention Verenna (that I left out the citation). I’ll wait until you have time to read both parts and maybe peruse more.

      Yes, the Lord does tell us to pray to be strong because our flesh is weak. Read on, part one is just an introduction.

        It’s hard to believe anyone would preach not to pray. Wow

        • That’s what I hope people might stop and listen to Kearcy. Many of his quotes and Washer-isms are filled with things that are not what Scripture encourages us with. God bless your week <3

  • Are you aware that Paul Washer did a sermon advocating the silence of contemplative prayer. He quoted Brother Lawrence. I will try to hunt it up if you want.

    • Lynnylou, that would be great, I would appreciate it very much. Thank you.

    • I found the sermon Lynnylou, don’t know if there is a better audio, because the first 5 min. are really not working, but it was on discerning the word, thank you for bringing it to my attention. She said these were the problematic areas.

      At the very beginning of the message he speaks of silence and meditation (5:50)
      Cites a poem or something that refers to the sacred silence (6:53).
      This is where he talks about Practice the Presence is (21:45) – Paul Washer is quoting “Brother Lawrence – Contemplative Monk” (1611- 1691).

  • lynnylou
    4 years ago

    This is the link to the sermon where Paul Washer quotes a poem by Brother Lawrence early 5-6 mins mark, as well as mentioning the words silence & meditation.Later round the 21.45 to 22.05 min. mark he keeps referring to practising the presence.

  • Paul Washer correctly interprets Matthew 7 with regard to the narrow way because Jesus said straight is the gate (Himself) and narrow is the “way,” (Your walk in this life) that leads to Heaven. You stated that Jesus is that narrow way, well if coming to Jesus is the way then what is the gate He is referring to? Furthermore, Paul Washer does not preach works earns salvation but rather having works is evidence of salvation – something you can Biblically support with books such as James. And yes, you will know them by their fruit applies to Christians as well because the attributes of The Holy Spirit are called “The fruits of The Spirit.” Why would a false teacher have the fruits of the Spirit?
    Furthermore, in 1 John, it clearly states that those who claim to have fellowship with the light (be Christians) but walk in darkness are liars. That is a fact and warning from God’s Holy Word to false converts that they are not of the faith if they live in sin. Paul Washer is a true man of God who preaches the hard truths people NEED to hear in this age of Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer money hungry false teachers. Your main argument against Paul is that he emphasizes works earning salvation – that is not true at all. He emphasizes the completely Biblical teaching of examining yourself in the light of God’s Word to see if you are truly in the faith. You know how many ministers tell people to just say a prayer, don’t worry about repenting, believe in Jesus, you can basically live as you please and now you’re saved – the VAST majority. They never teach them to repent, never teach them to submit to The Lordship of Christ, never teach them anything Jesus actually taught. Paul Washer is a breath of fresh air in an age of absolute apostasy. I am utterly shocked by the extreme simplicity and superficiality with which you have tried to “expose” a true man of God like Paul Washer. What does Paul Washer stand to gain by being so direct and serious? Do some research on him. Is he wealthy? Do the masses like his sermons? Does he sit back in a massive house every night? No. He wants people to come to true, not counterfeit, saving faith in Jesus Christ – the true kind where people are truly born again and receive the Holy Spirit and become new creations in Christ as the scriptures declare. This is no game, these are people’s eternal souls. Yes, he is a Calvinist which I don’t agree with at all, but that is false doctrine which he got from seminary (as did Ray Comfort, MacArthur, John Piper and almost every minister who went to seminary) which does not make him a false teacher by any means. I would seriously get your facts straight before bringing an accusation against a true servant of The Lord Jesus. Please watch this sermon and tell me if this man is a false teacher. God bless.

    • Tyler, thank you for visiting and giving your thoughts. I have watched many of Washer’s sermons (and examined them by God’s Word). I have gone through many transcripts, and paid to have transcripts made of his sermons, also scrupulously examining them. I believe I’ve done about all I want to in watching and examining his message, which I believe is accursed.

      YOU SAY: “Paul Washer correctly interprets Matthew 7 with regard to the narrow way because Jesus said straight is the GATE (Himself) and narrow is the “way,” (Your walk in this life) that leads to Heaven…..well if coming to Jesus is the way then what is the GATE He is referring to?”

      In Matthew 7, Jesus is the GATE we enter in, Jesus is the Narrow way that leads to life, and Jesus is the ROCK that He tells them to build their house upon.
      If that narrow way were our walk vs. Jesus, you are stating our works ‘lead to life’. Not true. Actually the broad way is adding ‘works’ to Jesus and His work. Continue on to see the false prophets justifying themselves by their ‘wonderful works’…

      I believe the verses have been provided, but I’ll share again in case they are not on here.
      GATE & STONE/ROCK

      From Psalm 118:

      19 Open to me the gates of righteousness:
      I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord:
      20 this GATE of the Lord,
      into which the righteous shall ENTER.
      21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me,
      and art become my salvation.
      22 The STONE which the builders refused
      is become the head STONE of the corner.

      From John 10, regarding the Door (Gate).
      7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the DOOR of the sheep.
      8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
      9 I am the DOOR: by me if any man ENTER IN, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. John 10:7-9

      WE SEE CHRIST IS THE GATE BY WHICH WE ENTER IN.

      MORE ON THE STONE/ROCK

      Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 2 and were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 3 and did all eat the same spiritual meat; 4 and did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual ROCK that followed them: and that ROCK was Christ. 1 Cor 10:1-5

      As far as the Narrow Way:

      Jesus saith unto him, I am THE WAY, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6

      As far as works evidencing salvation. God tells us how we can KNOW we have eternal life (1 John 5:13, John 20:31)

      James 2 does not Biblically support works is evidence of salvation, or the Holy Spirit inspired author wouldn’t have called these carnal, wrathful, hard of heart believers, brethren, beloved, etc. He was chastising BELIEVERS for their works being useless or dead, doing no one any good. Because we as BELIEVERS are to be careful to maintain good works (Titus 3:8) for it is beneficial to others (a testimony – or our justification before men) – consider Col 4:5-6.

      Whether you are utterly shocked or not, or judge Paul Washer to be a ‘true man of God’, I judge doctrine, it is 1 Gal 1:6-9 who calls his message accursed.

      I am sure all the people who were misleading the church at Galatia were looking ‘upright’, and did good works, as did the false prophets of Matthew 7, wolves who looked just like nice sheep doing good works and calling Him Lord Lord. Sound like anyone you know?

      I agree, this is no game, this is indeed about people’s souls. Including your own if you think Paul teaches the gospel.

      What is your gospel if I might ask Tyler? What must you do to be saved? I’d appreciate if you’d be willing to examine that Scripture you provide in context, and with the correct meaning.

      I.E., don’t state repent = repent from sin.

      Thank you, In Christ, Holly

      • I dont really know who are miss, but that was a genius discernment of Scriptural truth.

        • Paul, I am just a child of His, nothing special. I am thankful for the good news of the gospel, that was the power of God unto salvation. Not by any works that I had done. These men say they teach a God glorifying gospel, but what they truly teach is man-centered religious works that will keep the lost condemned, and that will make stumble those who have believed, and put them back into bondage. If the Lord is willing, I pray these, some of them, might come to a true understanding of the good news.

      Tyler be careful not to fall into the “either/or” trap
      Our enemy is a master deceiver.
      I’ll try to paint a picture of how he works:
      Let’s say there is a black box in the middle of the room.
      One man says it’s pink. Another man says it’s yellow.
      The guy that says it’s yellow can prove that the man who says it’s pink is wrong. Because he is right in proving the other guy wrong he assumes he is still right about the box being yellow.
      I can see where tons of false doctrine can and does come from this premise.

    • Both sides are wrong. By this I mean the false teachers of Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer and the false teacher Paul Washer. Keep your eyes on Jesus. Don’t look left. Don’t look right. Left: Osteen; Right: Washer. Both are deceived. Jesus preached the Kingdom is at hand. All this gibberish about “how” to get saved and all the doubt is straight from Satan. It is the old lie from the garden. Satan offered to Eve what she and Adam ALREADY HAD. Biting into the docterine of Washer is like biting into that fruit. Bottom line the Old Testament points to Jesus and our need for a savior. Believe you need a savior and that he is the one and you have crossed over into life. It is always Condition and Position. Condition: believed Jesus (saved) Position: how close your relationship is with Him. You can not save yourself and you can not keep yourself saved. This trying to “save yourself (Paul Washer) theology: is the mark of the beast 666. It is putting “you” in the place of God. RUN. Look straight to the cross and no where else. Also, Spurgeon references that the Pilgrim’s Progress was one of his favorite books and it got him into a very, very dark place which caused him to search for truth and find that it was as simple as looking to Jesus.

      • Mandy, thank you for coming and commenting 🙂

        I sure hope Spurgeon figured it out, some of his later sermons suggest he did not. Turn and Burn was just awful. But glad to hear that Pilgrim’s Progress got him to a dark place, I hope that he rejected that Calvinism was the gospel too (as he preached).

        We need to look to Jesus Christ and Him Crucified and Resurrected for us, for our sin. Who He is and what He did. Like you say, our condition is to believe upon Him as our Savior (the only way) and instantly our position is secure in Him (we are sons, adopted). Our fellowship is very important, and that’s one thing sadly that many neglect through hardening of sin, or lack of obedience to abide in the Lord and His Word (Lk 10:38-42), choosing the good part!

        God bless your week!

    Holly – I have only awoken recently to the things I had been deceived by in the past. I am still deprogramming myself or I should say repenting (changing my mind). I have heaviness of heart when remembering that I would listen to and recklessly believe things preached by people who would search for evidences of belief in others (fruit inspectors). I am ashamed of being so gullible. I remember wondering why I could be so judgmental of my brothers and sisters in Christ that didn’t seem to be towing the line in their Christian walk, yet being no better in my own struggles with sin and temptation. I hated being such a hypocrite, but I had no idea what was feeding it. Little did I know that the fruit inspecting messages were rubbing off on me. It produced sickness of thought. To consider that I acted no better than a pharisee. I was deceived by teachings that are contrary to true Biblical doctrine and it was sad to say the least.

    I am also angered that there continues to be so much work of deception out there that turns people away from simply trusting in the most awesome, precious and unmatched gift found in Jesus Christ’s finished work alone. Being encouraged to walk in the Spirit, as a grateful expression of your secure eternal salvation, because of what Christ did for us is the way of freedom, but being bullied into it is a way of bondage.

    I remember someone sharing once how a shepherd tends their sheep in the land of the Bible. They said the shepherds way is always call to their sheep and the sheep hears his voice and they come to him. This is unlike the way sheep are herded in America today. They are driven harshly and relentlessly to go where the herder wants them to go. No peace, no rest.

    I am rather now listening for the true Shepherds sweet voice when He calls me.

    Along with that, on a positive note. I listened to Dr Cucuzza’s message yesterday titled “The Joy That Came From Being Wrong” It really encouraged me to move on and enjoy walking the true way of freedom in Christ alone and leave the errors behind. But it also allows for me better discernment in the future.

    Thank you for having the courage to write this article. I pray you will be strengthened to continue to stand for the true and pure Gospel of the finished work of Jesus Christ alone.

    • Nathan, I listened to that message too, it is a great one. The Word is so helpful to me. There was once a Maxine cartoon or email that said something in thanks to the Lord, about having not yelled, or lost her temper, or been unkind, etc. so far that day, but she was going to need help for the rest of the day because she was about ready to get out of bed.

      The Lord was surely right when He told us to abide in Him, and abide in His Word. Luke 10:38-42 taught me the best lesson I think… feet time I call it. The stresses of life, kids, parents with illness, work can surely put us in places where we are sinning by grumbling, or being grumpy, relieving stresses in wrong ways, or being short tempered etc. We need the Lord. We need fed. We need to stay close to the Shepherd. I too thought I was a pretty good person, and am ashamed to say, although I didn’t quite realize what I was doing, the stinking thinking of loadship (not misspelled) doctrine, had me elevating myself to not ‘be like that person’. EVEN the ones that we holier-than-thou, I found myself grumbling to the Lord about one time in Bible study. I saw some of the cliquish women rolling their eyes at another woman who was sharing some problems, and was telling the Lord, “did you see that Lord? They’re making fun of her…who do they think they are, they think they’re better than her…” And it hit me, I believe the Lord impressed upon me, that I was doing the very same thing with them. I think I have changed a lot slower than most, and that disappoints me sometimes, but I do know where to go (His Word) and who to talk to about it. The Lord, the Lord… He is so good to the children of men.

      Thank you for your encouragement, and I pray the same for you. Keep close in His Word, keep ‘proving all things’ by it. God bless you and keep you. The Shepherd’s voice is a lot different than these wolves. I think on Isaiah 55:10-11. His Word settles on us in this way I believe, and it provides food for the eater, and seed for the sower. Not accusations and condemnation. But instruction and counsel, and for sure comfort (Rom 15:4).

      Thank you very much for coming by to read. In Him, Holly

      Well said Nathan! Keep exposing the darkness in the brilliant light of Gods truth Holly!

      • Thank you Michael, praying people will continue to prove the words of men/women against the light of God’s Word. His truth is how we are sanctified, it’s how unbelievers are able to be made wise unto salvation (2 Tim 3:15).

        God bless you in the upcoming year! In Him.

      • Thank you Michael, appreciate you visiting!

  • Holly,

    I wanted to thank you for your website. It sounds like we have been down similar paths. I have been down the path of these heretical teachings of LS’ers before I even knew what the doctrine was,(never listened to MacArthur or Piper, but many others with a more subtle LS false gospel) and I was in despair to the point of suicide, BUT GOD, lead my to the clear gospel and I believed the good news and never have been the same. Oh sure I still sin, and I am not proud of it, but I never doubt my salvation, because I’ve trusted the ONE who said it is finished, He did it all, nothing I can add to HIS finished work except believe, trust, rely upon HIM! AMEN!

    • Tully – thank you so much for sharing your story. Praise the dear Lord for His deliverance in our times of grief and despair.

      The deception I learned was subtle too, and cost me. I saw over the years, the more obvious, and they were saying the same thing, just a little more insistently and consistently.

      I thank the Lord that He used circumstances to draw me back into His Word and communion with Him, and the pure truth of His Word began to help me, guide me, direct me, light up my path.

      Such a long story to tell, but the story is all Him; iron sharpening iron, the Word building my faith, giving me discernment between good and evil. I just am very thankful for the Word and for others who are faithful to not compromise His Word.

      We lost another who was a defender of the gospel, a contender for the faith, a friend and dear brother in Christ. Our friend Pastor Jack Weaver of http://www.expreacherman.com went to be with the Lord yesterday. John will continue on there, and the Lord will continue to raise up others who loves His Word, and understands we cannot hinder or add to the gospel, because it then becomes another.

      Thank you again Tully, of course we still sin, and will until we die, and I thank the Lord for the truth, that HE has done it all. The Good News unencumbered, people need to learn, and preach, before it’s too late for them, or for others they love. He finished it. He rose again. Those of us who have believed upon Him, we will rise again too, to life everlasting, and where He is, so shall we ever be…

      • Thank you for writing that it was inspirational to me.

        • Todd, I sure appreciate you coming and commenting with a word of encouragement. Hope to see you again. I don’t get things written as often as I’d like, and I’m no writer, but as the Lord is willing.

          May He bless you and yours. In Jesus Christ eternally! We are IN HIM.

    You’re wrong.. do you realize you will not find ONE SINGLE PERSON out there that someone won’t say is a false preacher? Who says what you think isn’t false? You? ..he’s far better than 90% of them at there at least that are willing to put it out there ..and in reading what little I did read of your post ..I couldn’t get past the first three errors in your character assassination to tolerate any more…The measure you judge is the measure which ye shall be judged..or maybe you’re looking for the candy man cracker jack false feel good gospel that is going around so much today for the self intentioned …why don’t you just come out and say it that you hate so called Calvinisim which in fact is the Original Gospel message..are you afraid you’ll get your feelings hurt? On the other hand before we both have a heart attack..be glad he is preaching to the unrepentant MANY and not letting go of it..he is preaching the Gospel I know for certain few understand because they don’t have the guts to. P.S. Have you heard his wife’s testimony ? Seriously though..don’t be that quick to judge..if we are to write a paper..do one up on Osteen or of the other many on TBS…have a Blessed Day.

    • Stephen, thank you for joining us. Not quite sure where to begin, but will try to make sense of your post, starting with the beginning, and answer in an orderly manner.

        You say: “You’re wrong.. do you realize you will not find ONE SINGLE PERSON out there that someone won’t say is a false preacher? Who says what you think isn’t false? You? ..he’s far better than 90% of them at there at least that are willing to put it out there”.

      I am only concerned what the Bible says about Washer’s error.

        You continued to say “..and in reading what little I did read of your post ..I couldn’t get past the first three errors in your character assassination to tolerate any more…The measure you judge is the measure which ye shall be judged-“

      The Word actually says, “For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.” I am judging His doctrine with God’s Word, this is a righteous judgment, not one according to the appearance (Jn 7:24) There is no character assassination on my part, only marking and avoiding as I am told (Rom 16:17-18). I pray it will cut off their opportunity with some (2 Cor 11:12-15).

        You said “..or maybe you’re looking for the candy man cracker jack false feel good gospel that is going around so much today for the self intentioned –”

      Actually, I am defending THE Gospel of our salvation. The Word says we are to watch for those who preach another gospel (2 Cor 11:3-4), and not to give submission for even an hour to one like Paul Washer who preaches law, which is an accursed gospel (Gal 2:4-5; Gal 1:6-9).

        You said “…why don’t you just come out and say it that you hate so called Calvinisim which in fact is the Original Gospel message..are you afraid you’ll get your feelings hurt?”

      No friend, I am not afraid to get my feelings hurt, may I suffer with Christ. I rejoice if I am ever counted worthy to suffer shame for His name (Acts 5). We will suffer persecution for the offense of the cross, because it is truth (Gal 5). Have you been hindered from obeying the truth, or have you never understood the gospel?

      It is by His Word that I gain understanding, therefore I hate every false way (Ps 119:104), and I love His Word, it is treasure (Ps 119:140,162), so again, therefore I hate every false way. The Doctrine of Calvinism is not the gospel message and is a false accursed gospel. Calvinism originated from the love of Augustine’s writing, via carnal and murderous John Calvin in the 1500’s. Puffed up men who thought of other men beyond what is written (1 Cor 4:6) and did not do what they should (Acts 17:11). Others such as Luther, Zwingli, Knox, etc. jumped on the same bandwagon of error. The truth of the gospel remains and has always been since the beginning.

        You said: “On the other hand before we both have a heart attack..be glad he is preaching to the unrepentant MANY and not letting go of it..he is preaching the Gospel I know for certain few understand because they don’t have the guts to. P.S. Have you heard his wife’s testimony ? Seriously though..don’t be that quick to judge..if we are to write a paper..do one up on Osteen or of the other many on TBS…have a Blessed Day.”

      In brief Stephen, I mourn that Paul Washer and other false prophets like him are preaching at all, because they are deceived and are deceiving many. Paul preaches another gospel, and I pray that I can continue to do my part to warn. Yes, I have read his wife’s testimony and it is heartbreaking. Either she once believed and is brought into bondage by listening to Washer spew a works based gospel, or she has never understood the gospel. Either way, it is bad news.

      Please consider this link for the truth of the gospel. You will be judged (as we all will) by His Word in the end (John 12:48).

      How to be sure you are going to heaven

    1 John says that we know that we know him because we keep his commands and his commands are not grievous to us. ..

    You fail to understand who does the saving.

    I could as easily accuse you of works salvation with your sinners prayer and multitudes of false converts that trust in it and not Christ.

    • Charles, Thank you for visiting.

      I do not fail to understand Who saves me, and Who my Savior is, and what He did for me.

      We do not teach or preach a sinner’s prayer. We teach Biblical salvation, which is Christ and Him crucified, buried and risen again for our sins, and this is the same gospel all the apostles preached, that they all believed and were saved by.

      You did accuse me, reminds me of another accuser. Judge with a righteous judgment if you are able, and it is best to judge by holding up someone’s words to the Word of God. And not falsely accuse of anything one has not said (i.e., that one is saved by a sinner’s prayer).

      One is saved by believing the gospel.
