Baptist Pastor: Belief Jesus is Only Way to Heaven is 'Insanity'
Michael A. Walrond Jr., one of New York City's most influential pastors who leads the more than 10,000-member First Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem, is coming under fire online for telling his congregants that the belief that Jesus is the only way to Heaven is "insanity."

Prior to preaching one of his sermons at First Corinthian just over two weeks ago, Walrond asked the congregation to recite their purpose statement, which he said "shape[s] our identity as a congregation."

"We are an ever evolving community of visionaries, dreamers, and doers who have been called by God to live the lives we were created to live; commanded by God to love beyond the limits of our prejudices and commissioned by God to serve," the statement read. ...

I don't have a works based salvation because I accept the Baptist Church doctrine of salvation, which is not works based salvation but is the biblical doctrine of salvation. I have assurance of salvation because I surrendered my life to Jesus as Lord and Savior.

Rodney K., Baptist Pastors ask everybody requesting Baptism if they embraced Jesus as their Lord and Savior to make sure that they are a proper candidate for Baptism by being saved. I am saved according to Baptist teaching on salvation, which is the biblical doctrine of salvation.

Having the right answers doesn't save.

Oh John! None of us want to hear Him say to you on that day, "Depart from me, you worker of iniquity. I never knew you."

Repent and believe the Gospel. Be saved, so that you may say as David Dickson, "I have taken all my good deeds and all my bad deeds, and cast them... in a heap before the Lord, and fled from both, and betaken myself to the Lord Jesus Christ, and in Him I have sweet peace!"

According to the Jesuit pope, there's no hell, so no worries right? - https://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2018/03/there-is-no-hell-new-francis-revelation.html - 'Excerpt on hell:

[Scalfari:] Your Holiness, in our previous meeting you told me that our species will disappear in a certain moment and that God, still out of his creative force, will create new species. You have never spoken to me about the souls who died in sin and will go to hell to suffer it for eternity. You have however spoken to me of good souls, admitted to the contemplation of God. But what about bad souls? Where are they punished?
[Francis:] "They are not punished, those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and enter the rank of souls who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear. There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls."

Of course being Baptized Baptist and attending Baptist Church saves nobody. The only thing that saves is for one to give their life to Christ as their Lord and Savior. When I met with Pastor Steve in April 2017 to arrange my Baptism via immersion I was questioned rather thoroughly to make sure that I was truly saved and a proper candidate for Baptism. When I answered that I had embraced Jesus as my Lord and Savior then he was satisfied I was saved.

Well said, Brother Chris. I fear, however, we are knocking at the wrong door. It would appear that no one is home.

I know that John knows better for one simple reason, and that's because he never responds to the hard questions and valid comments. Just don't understand it.

John, surrendering yourself to Christ includes obediance. In fact, obediance is the key word. Obediance, no matter what this sinful flesh might want. Your continued allegiance to the church of Rome, knowing how they teach and preach lies straight out from the pit of Hell, is hardly surrendering yourself to Him. Attending the Mass along with the rest of the faithful to watch Him be re-sacrificed, over and over, because His once and for all sacrifice on the cross wasn't really good enough after all, isn't obediance. That my friend, is called disobedience, being lukewarm, and being against Him. We're all in, or were not...there is no in-between, and no, good enough, when we know better. You said one time that you just won't have any (or many) rewards...are you sure you have things so neatly figured out? Will Christ say, "Hmmm, ok, good enough, buddy...you just made it though...come on in".

JY, to "prove" you are a Christian, you always point to what YOU did or do. You go to church. You got dunked like a stale donut. You "joined " the church.
While I am the chief of sinners and less than the least of all saints, I am nevertheless a Christian because of what HE did. He died to pay the penalty for all of my sins, and this He did ONCE (Hebrews 9:24-28, 10:10-14), and not once a week as in your hocus-pocus, devil-invented Catholic "mass" (show me the word "mass" in the King James Bible and I'll send you a hundred dollars). He was buried as proof that He was actually dead, and He rose again for my justification. THIS is the saving gospel; this is the "Baptist doctrine of salvation," and this, and NOT works (Ephesians 2:9) is the ONLY hope anyone has of going to heaven. Your profession has one glaring lack, and that is repentance from dead WORKS (Hebrews 6:1). Either you are not saved, or you have no clear understanding of how you got saved.

I am a Baptist and a Christian because I faithfully attend a Baptist Church, was Baptized via immersion(as a public profession of faith that I had surrendered my life to Christ) and I am a member of a Baptist Church.

Christopher, I am hardly a faithful Catholic even though I attend Saturday Vigil Mass on Saturday afternoons. The absolute only reason I still attend Mass is that I like liturgical worship. It is not a just in case type of thing because I accept the Baptist Church teaching on salvation only. I am only a faithful Baptist. I consider myself to be Baptist only. I don't consider myself to be Catholic.

Ok, John...let me ask you a question then:

You are acutely aware by now that almost every church doctrine, dogma, and ritual, are diametrically opposed to God's clear Word. They openly and proudly teach according to their own manmade inventions, even going so far as to claim that they Trump God's own Word. They work directly against him in so many defiant and fatal ways, even in the Mass itself which exists because His once and for all sacrifice on the cross just wasn't good enough, so He needs to be continually re-sacrificed, daily and often, and then ordered down from Heaven itself by a Priest with special powers, and commanded to become a wafer to be consumed.

Knowing all that you know, and knowing that God warns sternly to not have anything to do with that wickedness, how to you justify sitting there faithfully every weekend?

Simply saying that you like the liturgical service doesn't cut it and makes no sense as your reason, given how you are warned by God Himself to come out from her. Knowing all you know, and still aligning yourself with that system is the reason I always feel that the real reason is a fear to leave...a just in case type of thing. Other than that, I just cant process someone who claims to be born from above, sitting amongst them. Run.
