Aussie pastor raises hell discussing the Holocaust

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, good for you. [And if you haven’t, please visit here and let us know].

That said, there is only one way to heaven – through the arms of the Father. He is God in the flesh, physically risen from the dead and came to earth to sacrifice his life for us all. That includes God’s chosen people, the Jews. Seriously, that last point takes reminders from time to time.

For instance, if you are a pastor – in let’s say, Australia – and have biblical knowledge God really wants orthodox Jews to become Messianic, you may want to tone down the rhetoric and evangelical whooping when shunning them all to hell.

jewish-puppiesWord to the wise, next time this guy is preaching fire and brimstone to God’s Chosen People, he may want to think of flowers, tweety-birds or cute puppy dogs (note the Orthodox picture).

A Baptist pastor has admitted telling Jewish leaders that Jews were “going to hell” and faced a fate “worse than the Holocaust” because they had not accepted Jesus as their saviour.

Now even though Pastor Kevin Harris (said pastor with an ADL target on his back) says he was conveniently “misunderstood and misquoted,” dude needs a prophecy, and HiScrivener is always up for that. So, eh-hem: “SHUT UP!”

Listen, I abhor being “PC” more than most, but please take that prophecy, Pastor. Anyone – regardless of creed or culture – will receive a horrendous fate if they refuse Jesus as Savior, but to compare anything to an international genocide is never a good Homiletical point of reference, you dolt.

Now, this guy has the Austrailian Jewish Board of Deputies on his case. Moreover, young Pastor Harris has to rock the olive branch and claim his Zionism by wearing a Yamika, Shammos robe, find some handy Umim and Thummim and play some Dreidel.

“It was a chilling experience,” he said. “While one is only too aware that there are fundamentalist beliefs and extremist preachers out there, his brazen approach and the fact that he is influencing others on a daily basis are the issues of real concern.”

Ya’ think? Whether it was anti-semitic or just anti-smart, I don’t think this pastor will be preaching the Romans Road with quite so much vigor next time. Just an observation.

    Lemme see if HiScrivener can build a bridge.

    1. What he said was indeed correct. So you both are right. There is no comparison than what awaits Satan, his angels and minions here on earth. None!

    2. Angela had a true and strident analogy. If this was a man who compared hell to slavery… well, let’s just say Jesse would be on TV looking for an extension on his 15 minutes.

    3. It was a strong reaction, but there are certain lines not to cross when you are pastor. If he was some tool standing on a street corner with a Bible, by all means go for shock value. But when you are called to tend to God’s flock, not so much. Kapesch?

    I disagree with the last comment. What Pastor Harris said was great. His comments caused a strong reaction and hopefuly this jewish man has been jolted out of his comfortable existence and realised that he is under the judgement of God. James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. Anybody who knows anything about bible prophecy knows that Israel is going to suffer more than during the holocaust. Pastor Harris pointed out what is going to happen to the Jews in the future according to Bible prophecy, he wasn’t comparing the holocaust to the lake of fire nor was he saying that he wanted this to happen to the jews. Most independent baptists love Israel and are probably their strongest ally in supporting their right to exist as a nation. But at the end of the day Pastor Harris desires the praise of God more than the praise of man. God bless Pastor Harris. 2Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season,out of season;reprove,rebuke,exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

    I think the man was unwise. What he said was the truth. Nothing will compare to hell. However he could have made his comments using different terms. It probably would have invoked a similar reaction to some blacks if a white preacher would have said that hell is way worse that the treatment of slaves on the slave ships. I totally agree that it was not a good choice of words, especially when the thought police are listening to every word that Christians say today.
