Critics of Pastor Myles Munroe, who died on Saturday in a plane crash, have denounced him as a “false teacher”.
Footage from a sermon in which Munroe declares “Jesus is not the Gospel…The good news is the Kingdom, not Jesus”, first published online in April, has been shared widely on the internet in the wake of the preacher’s death.
“Jesus preached the gospel of the Kingdom. He did not preach himself,” Munroe says in the 45 minute talk.
“The good news is not Calvary. The good news is not about even the resurrection…The Gospel of the Kingdom is the only true Gospel.”
“Do you know why the people on your job really hate Christians right now? Because you are preaching to them Jesus Christ. You don’t [need to] be talking about blood and nails and the spear in His side, because that’s not what you’re supposed to be talking about. You’ve got to be talking about how to solve people’s problems,” Munroe added.
“People aren’t worried about no blood on no cross. They’re worried about how they’re going to make it through the day.”
His controversial comments have seen Munroe labelled a “false prophet” and heretical teacher, though Bahamas Prime Minister Perry Christie issued a statement mourning the loss of his “personal friend and spiritual mentor” after his death.
