Pastor Says “Jesus Is The Only Way” Will Become Hate Speech

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.

  1. Jesus Christ taught Love, Compassion & Wisdom let His Christ Consciousness Reign in this world of hatred, fear, sin and darkness….

    By embracing and being in His Love, Knowing & Living by His Grace & Truth with Compassion & Wisdom when we interact with those who have no knowledge of Him, His Life, His Death and Resurrection; or those who have knowledge of him and have chose to not accept Him – – allow them to see how you Live, Breathe and have your Being and His Presence in You !

    I choose to be in that Love, Compassion & Wisdom knowing the Peace, Joy and Security vs Fear-Ego proclamations to others which can come with different intentions that “Jesus Is the Only Way” .

  2. Jesus is Lord and the only way for salvation. This is one Christian who will not be silenced. You continue your great work Jim Bakker. Salvation, forgiveness and restoration are available to everyone.

  3. Amen! Come quickly Lord Jesus! Mt 10:26-28 – “So have no fear of them; for nothing is covered up that will not be uncovered and nothing secret that will not become known. What I say to you in the dark, tell in the light; ad what you hear whispered proclaim from the housetops. Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul ad body in hell…” Satan continues his dance to separate the believers from the One True God- Father, Son & Holy Spirit. There is no other name by which anyone can be saved except Jesus Christ. The devil’s end is fat approaching…hold on to God’s truth in Christ Jesus!

  4. I will say that this is not just in the future, but has already begun. It is world wide hatred for anything Christian and God based. At least at this point in time the government can’t take the Holy Spirit from us, but it will try. The time will come when many believers will loose our/their heads just as is already being done in the Muslim countries. Put on your “Armor” daily and keep the faith.

  5. I agree and Christ said we would be hated in his name by the world. It seems that we have to stand strong in Christ and his word. The road is sure getting very narrow for those on the way to heaven. God bless the true church of believers in Christ and help us be safe and spread your word to others.

  6. I Robert W Reich stand on the Rock. Jesus is Lord & He is the Way the Truth and the Life no one goes to the Father except by Me. My personel relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ is simple. I’m in His heart & He is in my heart by Holy Spirit along with the love of the Father. It’s a total relationship as being born on High (Born Again).To the worlkd of unbelief I desire with the Lord to Save Some with Faith in His Life, Death,& Ressurection find Him while you still have time, For if not may the Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on your soul Let me shout from the roof top Halleluyah! Hallrluyah to the Blood of the Lamb of Almighty God!!!!

  7. So true. But calling our belief a hate crime is against the 2nd amendment of the Constitution and “intolerance” for our faiths’ belief, which is also a hate crime. It can go both ways but I still think Christians should contact their Representatives and insist that they support the Constitution as written and help those of faith fight the “intolerance” against Christians.

  8. I hate to say this, but I doubt that will be a problem for the Presbyterian Church In America (PCA), as they have gone about as far down the New Age road as any denomination of which I’m aware. Their conferences have included Wiccan circles, and a church we left was full of former PCA members, who had no problem voting in “elders” who promptly changed the church’s doctrine from dispensational to Calvinist replacement theology!!! My exposure to the PCA has been overwhelmingly negative.
