The Foolishness of Denouncing Myles Munroe

Pastor Myles Munroe passed away in a tragic accident, involving the death of nine people, including Dr Myles Munroe and his wife Ruth. Personally, while I am not familiar with much of his teachings or ministry, I have tremendous respect for a man who has dedicated himself to ministering to others. Even if we may disagree on many matters, he did great work with what he understood and believed.

But all too often, the dark reality of Christianity has raised it’s head. Our fruit of reducing the Gospel to a “get out of hell free” card, has spawned a mountain of heresy hunters seeking to spread their Gnostic Heresy of Salvation by Doctrine, and they have taken sight on Myles Munroe and his teachings. Many have concluded, that for no other reason apart from they do not agree with him, or do not understand him, they see the need to declare him a false teacher, and some have gone so far as to say he’s in hell.

Thanks to these Gnostic Christians, they have once again tarnished the Good News of Jesus Christ with their narrow mindedness. These heresy hunters, so blinded by the deceitfulness of sin, attack one of our own, and show the world that Christianity is not about love and acceptance, but rather a shallow hypocritical religion. Imagine how the unbelievers, with no Christian understanding, must think of these attacks? They must think, “If Myles Munroe can’t make it, there is no hope for anyone else!”

So what has all these heretic hunters up in arms over Myles Munroe? They believe that Myles Munroe denies Christ in his preaching, simply because he has been quoted as saying, “Our Good News is not About Calvary. Our Good News is not even about the Resurrection. These are important aspects of our work of Redemption, but our Good News is about a Kingdom.”

That is a big heresy that everyone is condemning Myles Munroe to hell for. In the mind of the religious, what was said above is synonymous with “Not Preaching Jesus.”  In other teachings, Myles Munroe talks about how we do not share about the Blood Of Jesus with unbelievers, because they do not understand our Christian culture, rather we should share about the inheritance we have in the Kingdom. This also drives our heresy hunters crazy, because they are so myopic in their vision, that unless something explicitly has the name Jesus, they wouldn’t know what anyone is talking about.

You can hear it in this sermon.

The irony of course, is that Myles Munroe NEVER suggested that the Message stopped there, neither does he suggest that we never talk about Jesus. He always said, that we talk about the Kingdom FIRST, and THEN talk about how this was achieved in the Finished work of Jesus. But the Heresy Hunters have usually switched off the videos before they can hear that part, and it never gets mentioned.

If you listened to the Sermon above, you will hear at the 25th minute the part where Myles Munroe, says that the second part of evangelism is to share the Lord Jesus, after we share about the Good News. There is no denial of Jesus Christ in Myles Munroe’s preaching. That only exists in the minds of heresy hunters who don’t listen.

Myles Munroe, in my opinion, is absolutely correct. Contrary to the Heresy Hunters, he does not deny Jesus, rather he does exactly what Paul did when talking to the Athenian Pagans on Mar’s Hill. Paul used their superstitions and poets to share the Good news of our Inclusion into the Family of God.
Acts 17:28  For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

In that entire sermon Acts 17:16-34, Paul never mentions the name of Jesus. Does that mean Paul has denied Christ? Does that mean Paul is a False Teacher? No, of course not. Paul is wise in using what the culture was familiar with to draw their interest, where some men inquired more about these matters (Acts 17:34). It is in those settings, we can assume Paul shared about Jesus Christ.

This kind of reaction is common among the immature believers who need everything spelt out to them.

They are babes, unskilled in the word of Righteousness, and cannot discern good and evil, without someone spelling it out to them plainly in simple words. Hebrews 5:14 But strong meat [Maturity] belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.  I remember the first time I told someone that Jesus didn’t preach the Born Again message as we preach it, they slammed me for it, and demonized me. But the truth was evident, Jesus never went around teaching that he died and rose again on the third day.

As with them, and with many today, who have fallen for the Gnostic Heresy of Salvation by Doctrine, they are so afraid of going to hell by getting teachings wrong, they attack anything different. And unfortunately Myles Munroe’s legacy and family must endure the fruits of that fear from the very ones who claim to be our brothers and sisters.

Briggs why dangle a carrot infront of people before presenting Christ to them. Why not just give them the pure and simple message. Christ died because you were a sinner. The law that condemned you was nailed on the crossed with Him. He resurrected so that in Him you might have the LIFE of God that was lost in Adam. Christian maturity is growing in our knowledge of Jesus Christ, so that we are not tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people… Read more »

Funny how all the Nay Sayers forget that they themselves are not perfect in their own personal revelation of God. Myles or anyone for that fact can give opinion to their revelation of Jesus Christ aside of what the basic foundation of the word of God is. The bottom line is Myles was a upright man of God. He was one of the many few I knew who lived a life he talked about. He stayed away from sin he was a virgin when he married his wife. He emphasized learning your purpose in Christ and YET, people love being… Read more »

Part of being a Christian is to gather information about a thing before making a decision, judgement, rebuke, or accusation. That’s what using wisdom is about. Myles Munroe wrote, taught, and preached extensively about the Kingdom of God, and about Jesus. Everything about the kingdom he preached and talked about was about its KING, JESUS. Apostle Paul taught the same message that Christ and the other apostles did, see (Acts 28:30-31; 20:25, and 28:23). A mistake some people make is to elevate the words of Paul above the words of Jesus. Pauls writings are epistles, letters written to address issues… Read more »

You start off by say “Personally, while I am not familiar with much of his teachings or ministry,” Don’t you think that it would be a good idea to familiarize yourself with a person’s teachings and believes before you defend them? Anyway to address just this one point that your brought up, the good news of the bible is that Jesus died, was buried and that He was resurrected. Putting the kingdom message before the work of Christ is like putting the cart before the horse. Jesus Christ is The Kingdom. What He came and achieved here on earth is… Read more »

People just don’t get because they are religious. Growing up in the Apostolic faith, I used to always hear, You Must Be Born Again. But nobody ever completely explain what the Kingdom of God was in John 3:3-7. The Kingdom of God taught by Dr. Myles showed me that what I was taught wasn’t wrong, but incomplete. The Kingdom doesn’t take the focus off of Jesus, it just allows you to see who Jesus really is. Jesus saying seek first the Kingdom makes more sense when you see Jesus from the Kingdom of God perspective. People just don’t understand Dr.… Read more »

Mark 1:15, Jesus said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!” You can’t talk about a Kingdom without talking about the King that runs that Kingdom. Jesus tells you what the Gospel was Himself

“NEWS”, brethrens is always a narration of what has already happened. News is not about what will happen. Guys, dont complicate a very simple instruction by Jesus to His disciples, “Go and tell the good news to every creature….them that believe…. be baptized…” God is and has been a King all along even before the coming of Christ on earth. Jesus, as the Christ came to restore man back to God’s Kingdom, simply put, to bring man back under the dominion of the King! Because of man’s disobedience he became independent of God. So Christ’s mission was simply to bring… Read more »

It is so true; we don’t merely see things as they are, we see them as we are. Anyone who is bent on fault finding would find faults in basically anything. Its amazing that I have not heard anyone judge any famous person as ok. there is always something wrong with them. If you become successful you are just assumed to be evil. What a shame…it stinks of shameless jealousy. Anyone who condemns Myles is just too intimidated by the impact he has made…believe it or not Myles is very much alive with us. He died empty. No potential was… Read more »

I mean, Jesus also said to Peter that he would do even greater things than that of what was being done at the time. It would be absurd to think that the Word cannot meet someone in any position or walk of life and build you up from there.

I totally agree with the stance you took on this issue mainly because the applications for the Word cover EVERY base of human existence and leads you to a “more glorious destiny” (Ps. 73:24). The difficulty of the Word is it’s simplicity.

Who are the sons of God? Those who have the Spirit of God. The problem with today’s Christianity is it has become a ‘Common Sense Only’ christianity. People are no longer spiritual ( no longer in tune with the Holy Ghost). This is my argument: don’t just judge someone by what they’ve said and how they’ve said it, ALSO (and most importantly) Judge by the spirit by which they are speaking. It is easier to detect a false spirit than to detect a false teaching. Cuz demons can pretend to be angels of light, giving a slightly twisted truth or… Read more »

The man has done the work well, nothing like heresy anywhere but he preached revelation as god gave it to him. He is never in hell nor in heaven because there is re-arrangement going on in the spirit. You are going to see the conclusion of all things soon. The man preached the right message throughout, the kingdom of god. The kingdom of god is what is going to take over soon, god has completed the work in the spirit already. Calvary has completed it’s work and gone longtime ago, we have another set of power working for the new… Read more »

Let’s put aside all the man-centered sentiment and listen to what Scripture has proclaimed shall we: “3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures” I Corinthians 15:3-4 So Munroe was dead wrong. Not to mention he has also preached that Christ “did not really die”. The man single-handedly nullified he crucifixion and leaves us (believers) in our sin. I have heard the man speak in… Read more »

This gentleman is spot on . . . “Wow! That is all I can say about how ridiculous this person’s article is. First of all, somebody needs to pick up a book and read about gnosticism before they go throwing that word around freely. Gnostics were not about sound doctrine; they were about secret knowledge. Secondly, he uses Paul’s message to the Athenians as a base for defending Monroe’s method for presenting the “gospel.” This is idiotic for numerous reasons; 1. We can be quite certain that this is a condensed version of Paul’s message as messages in the Areopagus… Read more »

Question: If the Kingdom of God is first introduced to an unbeliever as a means of informing this person about what’s available to them in the Kingdom before entering it and if Jesus is secondly introduced to this person as the way of entering the Kingdom and that person receives Jesus as Lord and Savior, is this person considered born again? If yes, than let’s move forward together…

How can the lost know they are lost without a point of reference to be lost by? What use is a cure without first learning of the sickness? What use is a King without seeing his kingdom? Didn’t Jesus come first declaring the Kingdom, prior to his death? Didn’t Jesus tell us to seek first the Kingdom and it’s righteousness (which Dr Munroe states as meaning right standing with the King of that Kingdom)? Did he preach Christ died and resurrected and ascended (often forgot) for the salvation of the world, that they may enter into his Kingdom? (note the… Read more »

If Myles really did say (as he is reported to have said) that the bible doesn’t say Jesus really died, or that our job is not to preach about Him dying for our sins, but to “solve people’s problems” , then he WAS a false teacher and it needs to be pointed out. We are not to lovingly accept false teachers but to reject them after they have been admonished 2-3 times without them repenting of their false teaching. Since Monroe no longer can repent, his false teachings still need to be pointed out for what they are. A little… Read more »
