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."
JOHN HAGEE IN
of the Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, speaker on TBN, and making frequent
appearances with Benny Hinn, John Hagee has become a superstar on the Word of
Faith circuit. Previously, the pastor of Trinity Church in San Antonio, Texas
from 1976 to 1987, he had an adulterous affair that resulted in a divorce from
his wife Martha and loss of his two children to her custody. Marrying his adulterous
lover, Diana Castro, they started their own family and then, became the heads
of the Cornerstone Church."
reader phoned and claimed he was John Hagee. He claimed I said he was overweight.
Well, he fooled me at first. I decided to take a look. I never called Hagee overweight.
I said that he was a large man in a large pulpit. Now, there are several ways
in which a man can be said to be large. I gather the scum brat who called on behalf
of Hagee was a bit sensitive over his guru's rather large belly. I don't blame
him, but it is classic Charismatic form to lie about oneself and take on airs
of authority to protect the big man. I have had this before. So, in the interest
of accuracy, I have updated this page. It is now even more interesting I trust.
If the real John Hagee has the time to mess with me, he will send his complaint
in letter form, registered mail.

as we use at this site.
Hagee's ministerial activities began in 1958 as an evangelist. In 1966 he went to San Antonio to become the founding pastor of what eventually became Trinity Church. After resigning his pastorate of Trinity in May 1975, Hagee took the helm of the 25-member Church of Castle Hill in San Antonio. That church (rebuilt to seat 5,000 and dedicated in October 1987 as Cornerstone Church) now has an active membership of over 13,000.
Through his writings (books, booklets, and articles in his bimonthly John Hagee Ministries magazine), taped messages, and daily appearances on his Global Evangelism Television broadcasts (Cornerstone and John Hagee Today) aired by the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) and other media outlets, Hagee has gained broad visibility and influence among evangelicals.
A number of people consider Hagee�s teachings to be thoroughly biblical. Christian Research Institute would disagree with Hagee, however, on the following points, which you will find at their web site.

Entry from the Calvary Contender on Hagee:
HAGEE A HERETIC?
Dr. Jerry Falwell's 5/6 Liberty Flame quoted Southeastern Baptist Seminary Pres. Dr. Paige Patterson (from 4/30/88 Houston Chronicle) as saying John Hagee's "Two Covenant teaching is "heretical." The article said Hagee believes that Jews are saved by keeping the Mosaic law, while everyone else (Gentiles)--whether Buddhist or Baha'i--needs to believe in Jesus. Former SBC pres. Dr. Jerry Vines said: "Most [evangelicals] do not know John Hagee very well...not aware of his 'Two Covenant' theological position nor his marital difficulties." In 1975 Hagee resigned as pastor of a charismatic church saying his marriage had collapsed and he had become "immoral" in his personal conduct. After leaving that church, he immediately became pastor of Cornerstone Church (San Antonio) where he is now. After a 1975 divorce, he married a young woman from the former church. Hagee is popular on Paul Crouch's TBN, and, in the past year he has spoken at National Religious Broadcasters, Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship, and Oral Roberts University conferences.
(See 3/1 CC).
his long list of Jewish people who have blessed the world, Hagee makes no distinction
between individuals who simply have a Jewish background and those who truly fear
and seek God. He lists Goldie Hawn, Dustin Hoffman, and Barbara Streisand, among
others, as Jews who have proven the Scripture 'in thee shall all the nations of
the earth be blessed.' The contributions of these entertainers can hardly be seen
as a fulfillment of God's promise to Abraham in Genesis. Hagee also goes as far
as branding anti-Semitic those who don't agree with his enthusiastic support of

To: gobucks I have to say that Dr. Fred K. C. Price, a "televangelist," has been on the fat issue for years. But for example to see John Hagee, who is a good Bible teacher, or Jerry Falwell, attack other sins and leave this one alone is, well, selective to say the least. 3 posted on 03/09/2004 4:20:32 AM PST by LS (CNN is the Amtrack of news.)

Well a preacher cannot preach against something that he himself is doing. That would be hypocritical. And would tend to mock the gospel. 4 posted on 03/09/2004 4:24:28 AM PST by ColdSteelTalon [ Post Reply | Private Reply | To 3 | View Replies ]
To: anniegetyourgun "....feast on the Word first, and all other needs will be provided." True, and that makes the imperative of temple optimization ever more acute. For, of all men, the Preacher is the one 'feasting' on the Word the most (the flock would assume logically enough), but if the Preacher is rotund, then with his body he transmits the greatest LIE: the Word is not really a filling vehicle after all. And so, what does the flock do in response? 8 posted on 03/09/2004 5:54:35 AM PST by gobucks (http://oncampus.richmond.edu/academics/classics/students/Ribeiro/laocoon [ Post Reply | Private Reply | To 6 | View Replies ]
