Leading conservative evangelical pastors are saying that Jewish people can go to Heaven without Jesus Christ and the cross

According to the Jerusalem Post newspaper, televangelist John Hagee and an Orthodox Jewish rabbi have persuaded Baptist preacher Jerry Falwell that Jewish people have a special relationship to God through the revelation at Mount Sinai and therefore Jews do not need to go through Jesus Christ or the cross to get to Heaven.

Hagee, a pastor down in San Antonio, Texas, has held this position for twenty-five years and supposedly has worked together with an Orthodox Jewish rabbi to convince Falwell of this controversial doctrine referred to as Dual Covenant Theology.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The statement that Jews do not need to go through Jesus Christ or the cross to get to Heaven sounds like a page out of Satan's playbook for the End Times, that is according to Bible prophecy. Christian leaders coming together to form a Political Action Committee (PAC) to support the modern-day state of Israel is somewhat of a controversial move on the part of true Bible believing Christians, if for no other reason than the fact that Israel is a secular state in our world and may do things that are not biblically expedient.

John Hagee, the national chairman for Christians United for Israel, has taken a public position against proselytizing the Jews and says he represents thirty million evangelical Christians in the US who are supporting his new Christian PAC. Hagee's doctrine of Dual Covenant Theology runs counter to mainstream Christianity and also to the biblical doctrine as expressed by this broadcaster.

It does seem, however to fit an End Times doctrine described by the apostle Paul in a letter to young Timothy in a warning to watch for as the Last Days come into focus. In First Timothy 4:1, Paul writes that in the Last Days there will be those who depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. Jesus Christ said in John 14:6, that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and no man can go to the Father, in other words go to Heaven, except through Him and the cross.

John Hagee's Dual Covenant Theology is a doctrine of devils and is evidence that we are in the Last Days. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

Update - Both Jerry Falwell and John Hagee has denied that Hagee convinced Falwell of his doctrine. However, Hagee still believes and teaches that Jews do not need Jesus or the Cross to enter into Heaven. - Report.
