John Hagee is the founder of “CUFI” – “Christians United for Israel”…
While that title may sound good, please understand what Hagee actually means:
“…The first rule adopted by Christians United for Israel was that there would be no proselytizing at our events. CUFI exists only to honor and support the Jewish people, never to convert them…” ~ By John C. Hagee, The Forward,May 13, 2010
“It is time for Christians everywhere to recognize that the nation of Israel will never convert to Christianity and join the Baptist church in their town.”~ John Hagee, , 2011, page 148
If one does not “preach the gospel” to the Jew, then one is guilty of the WORST kind of “hatred” towards the Jew! John Hagee (and others) are NOT “friends of Israel”. They are leading them into the “Broadway” that leads to destruction! [Matthew 7]
Listen to this young woman’s plea for people to Beware of John Hagee:
What is wrong with John Hagee’s congregation?
As with C. I. Scofield ~ How can a man divorce his wife, marry another woman [from his former church], and continue pastoring at his new church? Shame on that congregation! [1 Timothy 3]
“In 1975, he (John Hagee) had resigned as pastor of a charismatic church because of his immorality. He then became pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas. After his wife divorced him, Hagee married a young woman from the former church (Calvary Contender, June 15, 1994).”
“He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.” ~ John 1:41
“The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.” John 4:25-26
Why expose Sam Gipp?
Not only a liberal “neo-evangelical”, like John Hagee, but even Sam Gipp, a well-known, “independent Baptist”, has succumbed to the silliness of Scofield’s Zionism. Gipp is known as a “Defender of the King James Bible”. Unfortunately, he misrepresents some other “independent Baptists”(like myself) when it comes to Dispensational-Zionism. The following is a direct quote from Sam Gipp, preached in a sermon at the Treasure Valley Baptist Church in Meridian, Idaho (August 2013). Here is what he said:
“You know what I never call Jesus Christ? I never call Him ‘my Messiah’. You know why? You say, ‘Oh, He’s the Messiah’, He ain’t your Messiah – unless you’re a Jew, He’s not your Messiah. Are you from Gentile stock? Alright, we were never promised ‘a Messiah’.”
~ Sam Gipp
I have contacted Sam Gipp, more than once, to ask if he meant what he said, or if he would like to retract his statement concerning Jesus, as his Messiah. To date, he has not. In my email correspondence with Gipp, he referred to me as “Matty Furse” and to my “BIBLICAL IGNORANCE”. He included several insults, including ending one of his emails with, “PS- If you have to, have an adult read this and explain it to you.” In spite of these insults, I was completely professional in my correspondence, and I chose not to return his insults. (and, I still have the original emails to prove it!) My book explains, from Scripture, how and why Jesus Christ IS the Messiah= for EVERYONE (including Sam Gipp, whether he likes it or not).
[NOTE— in the original sermon (below), Gipp publicly ridicules two Baptist preachers, with whom he happens to disagree — “Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.” – Proverbs 26:27]
