This is why I will never post anything from Paul Washer, no matter how much “good” is in the video/audio/article: In my estimation, Paul Washer has led more people to the false teachings of Calvinism in the last 5-10 years than John MacArthur, John Piper, R.C. Sproul and James White combined. And Calvinism will lead many people to the very destruction of their souls, that many Calvinists think …they are “saved” from.He preaches “hard” and then speaks out the other side of his mouth. This is VERY DANGEROUS. It allows people to think that they can “hate sin” (have bad feelings about it), while still sinning every day in thought, word and deed. I believe that this is the “testimony” of most “christians” and that is precisely WHY Washer is so appealing to most “christians”. He is simply “tickling” their ears…maybe not in the same sense that a Rob Bell or some other False Teacher would, but that is what he is doing. Once again, he makes “christians” think (by his preaching) that they can “hate” sin and still engage in it EVERY DAY!
Stay away from him Saints and definitely don’t promote him to others. You may be discerning enough to avoid Calvinism, but there are thousands out there that aren’t. What about them? Shouldn’t we love them as we want to be loved? The end of some of Washer’s sermons (people being saved/edified) does NOT justify the means of posting his sermons. In other words, just because “some good” has been done through Washer’s sermons, doesn’t mean we should post them. I’d rather never post a sermon at all than post one of his.
The question being asked to Paul Washer is a very difficult one that many stumble over and many have different views about it. I can also answer the question with the light I have on it, but I may be missing something. My question is, does the way Paul Washer answered this question make him a false teacher or is Mr Watchman on Facebook busy with a witch hunt? And Mr Watchman, if you by accident read this, feel free to join in.
Your honest views will be appreciated.
