Critics of Pastor Myles Munroe 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.

Monroe had appeared with a number of popular speakers throughout his 30-year tenure, including Benny Hinn, T.D. Jakes and Eddie Long. He was also a part of the Promise Keepers gatherings, which sought to help men to be better husbands and fathers. Monroe, an Oral Roberts University graduate, authored numerous self-help books including “Releasing Your Potential,” “Overcoming the Crisis,” “The Spirit of Leadership” and “Waiting and Dating.”

But some Christians have expressed concern about teachings that Monroe promulgated, including his assertion that the message of the Gospel is not about Christ’s death and resurrection. These concerns were renewed following word that Monroe had lost his life this past weekend as some considered the legacy that he left behind.

“Jesus preached the gospel of the Kingdom. He did not preach himself,” Munroe says in the 45 minute sermon.

“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.”

Pastor Munroe and his wife, Ruth, were killed in a tragic plane crash on Sunday evening. The jet they were travelling in reportedly hit a shipyard construction crane as it flew into Grand Bahama International Airport, killing all nine people on board.

Amen for those who have not become “beguiled” by the teachings of the kingdom of the world whose leadership is dictated by the prince of the air and not enlightened by the King of Heaven whose light shines in the darkness.

This is such a half truth message. This is the preache’s own version of the gospel message. The main thrust of the gospel is that there is only one way, one truth, one life– and that is in Jesus Christ. After stating that the gospel is all about the kingdom and not about Christ, this preacher has effectively blocked the truth about the Gospel. Take away Christ from the so called “kingdom message” and you have any religion. But it is not Christianity. When he says we have to take things in context, this preacher himself has gone out of… Read more »

I agree but also agree that Jesus ain’t a white man(as we know white) either. And no this is not a race-baiting rabble. A lot of folks have distorted the truth from Constantine’s Rome to justifying slavery and to dehumanize justifyinga people in this country. When you confront a heresy with the truth there will always be justification for the lie. This country is chief for that type of behavior. We are all guilty of calling churches by their ethnicity. The Truth knows nothing of this especially when we all live in the same nation. Culture, tradition, patriotism political affiliation… Read more »
Perhaps the biggest lie propagating the church today is that the gospel is for “talking about how to solve people’s problems” and telling people “how to make it through the day”. People are looking for the benefits of God but not for God himself. Many (if not most) ministers do nothing more than give life lessons or advice from the pulpit. Gone are conviction of sin, accountability to God, mercy, salvation, Hell, and even Jesus Christ. People hate Christians because Jesus said “You will be hated by everyone because of me…” (Matthew 10:22). Some factors that make me think he… Read more »
