Why Did Pat Robertson Lie to Michael Eisner About Salvation?

by @ 5:35 pm. Filed under Nuts on Parade

On June 20, 2006 the cable TV network CNBC featured media mogul Michael Eisner interviewing Pat Robertson. Although this happened some time ago, there was something that took place during this particular interview, that I have not found much outcry against and I felt it should be noted here. Because it is a totally misleading use of scripture and Pat Robertson once again showed he’s following AND TEACHING a false gospel, to say what he said to Michael Eisner.

What concerns me occurred at the tail end of the interview. You can watch video of the interview via this link and once the interview video starts (after an advertisement), you can advance to 4:22 to see where things start regarding what I’m speaking of here.

Below is a quote from the official transcript.


MICHAEL EISNER:
This may be a silly question. I’ve almost been married as long as you have. About 40 years. How long have you been married?

PAT ROBERTSON:
About 52.

MICHAEL EISNER:

All right. So I’m not– I’m not in your league. I’m not in your league.

PAT ROBERTSON:

All right.

MICHAEL EISNER:
So my wife is Christian.

PAT ROBERTSON:
Right.

MICHAEL EISNER:
So I appreciate the fact that she’s Christian. She can go to heaven. I’m Jewish.

PAT ROBERTSON:
Yeah.

MICHAEL EISNER:

So from what I understand, we only can be together in– on this Earth. ‘Cause I can’t go to heaven, according to the 700 Club.

PAT ROBERTSON:

No, not according to the 700 Club. I don?t know who it?s according to.

MICHAEL EISNER:
All right. So– well, I thought Jews couldn’t go to heaven.

PAT ROBERTSON:
All right. Here’s the deal. And with this– the Apostle Paul said that all Israel will be saved. There’s going to come a time when all Jews are gonna come to heaven. They’re all gonna meet the– the Lord. And– and it’s– it’s in the Old Testament. Zachariah says they’ll look upon him who they have pierced, and they’re going to mourn and so forth. But there’s gonna come a time of extraordinary persecution. There already has come. But it’s gonna be some serious stuff. And– it’s told by the Old Testament prophets the answer that we believe as evangelicals is that God has a special role for the Jewish people. And you look at– you look at the 22nd Psalm. He talks about his bones pulled out of joint, you know? And he talks about people surrounding. And he looks down, and it describes the crucifixion. It’s all in there. It’s in the Old Testament– describing what happened. And– I’m just one of the goy that came along late. (LAUGHTER) I– I’m– I’m converting to the– to the faith of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

MICHAEL EISNER:
So you’re converting to Judaism.

PAT ROBERTSON:
Well, I’m not converting to Judaism. (OVERTALK)

MICHAEL EISNER:

See, I thought I’d– this would be– this would be a big announcement here.

PAT ROBERTSON:
(LAUGHTER) I’m–

MICHAEL EISNER:
I could get a big rating.

PAT ROBERTSON:
I’m converting– (OVERTALK)

MICHAEL EISNER:
Pat Robertson converts to Judaism. (OVERTALK)

PAT ROBERTSON:
–faith of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. And– but the time is coming very soon when there’s going to be a revelation of the Lord to everybody. And all Israel, all Israel is gonna get saved.

MICHAEL EISNER:
You’ve always been known to be very pro-Israel.

PAT ROBERTSON:
Totally pro-Israel. I mean, I– I’ve got the Star of David printed on my underwear. I mean, it’s that kind of thing.

MICHAEL EISNER:
Thought you had Mickey Mouse on your underwear.

PAT ROBERTSON:

(LAUGHTER) (UNINTEL) said you’re more Israeli than (UNINTEL). But in– in any event– I firmly believe that according to the Bible, the– the fullness of the Gentiles will come in. And then all Israel will be saved. That’s what the Apostle Paul wrote.

MICHAEL EISNER:

Wow. (LAUGHTER) Thank you very much– (OVERTALK)

MICHAEL EISNER:
Got a lot to think about now.

PAT ROBERTSON:
(LAUGHTER) I want you to be with your wife.

MICHAEL EISNER:
Yeah. I’m gonna be with her, one way or the other.

PAT ROBERTSON:
Okay. (LAUGHTER)

MICHAEL EISNER:

Thank you.

What Pat Robertson basically said was (paraphrasing), All you Jews are going to Heaven, because Paul said ALL ISRAEL will be saved.

In the context Pat Robertson spoke, he spoke a lie. We could say Hebrew scripture notes all Israel one day went into the promised land, HOWEVER we should not forget that many did not get beyond the wilderness.

Numbers 14:22-32 (New American Standard Bible)

22 “Surely all the men who have seen My glory and My signs which I performed in Egypt and in the wilderness, yet have put Me to the test these ten times and have not listened to My voice,

23 shall by no means see the land which I swore to their fathers, nor shall any of those who spurned Me see it.

24 “But My servant Caleb, because he has had a different spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land which he entered, and his descendants shall take possession of it.

25 “Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites live in the valleys; turn tomorrow and set out to the wilderness by the way of the Red Sea.”

26 The LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying,

27 “How long shall I bear with this evil congregation who are grumbling against Me? I have heard the complaints of the sons of Israel, which they are making against Me.

28 “Say to them, ‘As I live,’ says the LORD, ‘just as you have spoken in My hearing, so I will surely do to you;

29 your corpses will fall in this wilderness, even all your numbered men, according to your complete number from twenty years old and upward, who have grumbled against Me.

30 ‘Surely you shall not come into the land in which I swore to settle you, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun.

31 ‘Your children, however, whom you said would become a prey–I will bring them in, and they will know the land which you have rejected.

32 ‘But as for you, your corpses will fall in this wilderness.

Take note of the statement “nor shall any of those who spurned Me see it”. The Messiah of Hebrew scripture has come and His name is Jesus, Yeshua. Yeshua, Jesus is the Christ. Since his coming, He warned Israel for their unbelief in Him.

Luke 19:41-44 (New American Standard Bible)

41 When He approached Jerusalem, He saw the city and wept over it,

42 saying, “If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes.

43 “For the days will come upon you when your enemies will throw up a barricade against you, and surround you and hem you in on every side,

44 and they will level you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not recognize the time of your visitation.”

And it did happen.

Jesus provided the means for salvation through belief on Him. Jesus even explained this himself in John 3. Through His sacrificial death, burial and resurrection, He provides salvation to all who believe on Him, turning from darkness, both Jew and Gentile alike.

One who rejects Jesus does not have the Father, they do not have God. They are not saved.

1 John 2:22-23 (New American Standard Bible)

22 Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.

23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also.

Therefore, it is impossible to tell anyone, even a Jew (a person of Hebrew blood) that they can be saved via any means except they believe on Jesus Christ. If they deny Him, they are not saved, period.

So what of all Israel being saved as Paul said? It is just like it was for the Jews of the past. Those who deny the truth God has given to man through His Son will perish, but a final remnant of Israel will believe on Him and be saved. This does not mean Michael Eisner will be part of that group. So to tell Michael Eisner “all Israel”, as if it applies to him and all Jews is an untruth. Romans 11 is best read in full, given it details things fully. Through Hebrew disobedience a means of salvation was made for Gentiles that believe on Christ, but no Jew who rejects Christ will be saved. All Jews reading this post should read the book of Hebrews from its first chapter to its last (chapter 13). When the fullness of Gentiles has come in (all Gentiles who are the Lord’s believe on Him), that final remaining remnant of Hebrew blood will be at a point in biblical prophesy, where they will all accept Jesus as Lord and He will save them and all still in flesh at that time who believe on Him. All who die today believing on Christ are saved too, but not anyone who fails to. This does not mean Michael Eisner is saved by virtue of his heritage, no more than anyone else that fails to believe on Jesus.

I feel it is a heinous crime against the Lord God, that so-called Christians are lying to people of Hebrew descent.

    You’re right, IC. Robertson is at it again. These celebrity ministers want the world to accept them, so they don’t tell the truth that would divide them from these worldly people. Why didn’t Robertson tell Eisner what Moses said in Deuteronomy 18?

    I will raise up a prophet from among their countrymen like you, and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him. It shall come about that whoever will not listen to My words which he shall speak in My name, I Myself will require it of him.

    This kind of preaching is Eisner’s only hope – a direct statement of his need to repent and put his faith in this Righteous Man, whom God raised up from among the dead to bring us to Himself.

    And, his audience and supporters are forced by such double-mindedness from him to make a decision to continue to support him or to quit it. He needs to be called on his duplicity.

    See? I told y’all that Pat is out of his tree. He’s no better than the rest of the pulpit pimps. In addition to the error that he preaches, I’m wondering if he’s not starting to borerline on some sort of dementia.

  3. 2thehilt Says:

    The word in that last comment was supposed to have been “borderline”.

  4. Caleb Phillips Says:

    It’s interesting that Robertson acts all pious, but he seems to ignore scripture passages concerning the doom of false prophets & wolves in sheep’s clothing. Interestingly, we were talking about the story of Elijah vs. the “prophets” of Baal in small group just tonight

  5. SteelGator Says:

    This sounds just like what the pimp John Hagee preaches. These clowns will be accountable for the heresy they preach.
