The background of Paul Washer's shocking message

Paul Washer has recently done a video interview whereby he reveals to us the background behind his shocking sermon preached in 2002 to a conference of stunned youths, about 5000 strong.

An interesting quote from Pastor Washer here:

"We are living in a time when billions of people are dying without Christ. We are living in a time when millions of so-called Evangelicals do not even understand the Gospel. We are living in a time when some of the greatest "Evangelical" heroes, if they were simply critiqued in light of historic Christianity, they would be proven heretics. Shouldn't somebody be disturbed? Shouldn't someone be broken and shouldn't someone stand up and say: "This is wrong" This IS wrong" — Pastor, Evangelist and Missionary Paul Washer

Just in case it was missed, Pastor Washer's shocking youth sermon can be seen here.

a humble guy. i like the part where he admits he was wrong - even though his sermon was motivated by the Spirit, and God touched many lives through him, he did phrase some concepts a bit inappropriately (which ended up becoming a source of criticism).. but it does happen to everyone

but it was an amazingly gd sermon though
