John Hagee has devised another gospel that can get people to God without Jesus Christ. He insists that "The law of Moses is sufficient enough to bring a person into the knowledge of God until God gives him a greater revelation." Hagee told the Houston Chronicle, in a recent interview:

"I believe that every Jewish person who lives in the light of the Torah, which is the word of God, has a relationship with God and will come to redemption."

"I'm not trying to convert the Jewish people to the Christian faith."

"In fact, trying to convert Jews is a 'waste of time,'... 'The Jewish person who has his roots in Judaism is not going to convert to Christianity. There is no form of Christian evangelism that has failed so miserably as evangelizing the Jewish people. They have a faith structure.'

“Everyone else, whether Buddhist or Baha'i, needs to believe in Jesus, he says. But not Jews. Jews already have a covenant with God that has never been replaced by Christianity, he says."

In a switch from his heresy about two ways to God he sounds like he is teaching universal salvation: "All people will gain entrance into heaven through Christ. The question is one of timing."

The Bible contradicts Hagee’s belief that Jews will not convert: “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek” (Romans 1:16).

Though Hagee is a powerful speaker who sounds authoritative we are warned about preachers that have any other way to God than Jesus Christ: “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed” (Galatians 1:6-9).
