The Other Gospel of John Hagee

As an addendum to my pieces entitled John Hagee has the Spirit of Antichrist and John Hagee's Strange Fire I am pleased to offer up yet further evidence that the teachings of John Hagee of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio lie outside the bounds of orthodox historical Christianity. Based on the facts currently available it is my firm conviction that John Hagee can not be understood to teach Biblical Christianity, rather let it be known that he espouses another gospel.

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. (Galatians 1:8)

From Personal Freedom Outreach:

“An astonishing and horrible thing has been committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule by their own power; And my people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?” (Jeremiah 5:30-31).

“For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek” (Romans 1:16).

Most people who see and hear the Rev. John C. Hagee are impressed. He is rotund, strident, authoritative (and could well pass for Rush Limbaugh’s older and more serious brother). His delivery alone gives the impression of one who really knows what he is talking about. However, careful evaluation of the teachings of Hagee, pastor at the San Antonio-based Cornerstone Church, reveals false teaching and a defective view of a basic and essential issue regarding salvation and the Gospel. Hagee preaches another way of salvation for the Jew, which is in direct violation of Paul’s warnings in Galatians 1:6-9.

This theological concept, which has many forms, is primarily referred to as the “Two Covenant” or “Dual Covenant” theory.

I encourage you to continue reading this important and detailed analysis on the manifold errors of John Hagee here.
