Michael Youssef doesn’t believe in same-sex marriage as he believes it is an abomination and goes against the word of God. He believes the society began to collapse when the church started ignoring God’s authority. To avert God’s anger, he believes the church needs to repent and go back to God.


      • Many, many churches are performibg same sex marriages. Many American main stream churches now perform same sex marriages, have openly homosexual ministers and the list goes on and on.


        Further, statistixally speaking, 52% of American self proclaimed Chrstians beleive that certain non-Christian religeons can be a path to God amd 80% of them beleive that any religion can lead to God while Jesua said “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. “

  1. Many churches have “gone off the rails”, so to speak. When they no longer preach the Word of God as it is written and start to change it to meet their needs, then they are ignoring God’s authority. “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for instruction, for conviction, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, fully equipped for every good work.”
    2 Timothy 3:16-17

  2. Amen and praise and glory to Jesus our soon coming king. Truly our father is looking for true believers, those who worship him in spirit and in truth. The gospel of the kingdom of god should be every believers first priority. Our eternity is our free will choice. Matt 6:33. Seek ye (you) the kingdom of god FIRST. Jesus said his purpose when he was here on earth was to preach the kingdom of god that’s the main reason god sent him to ALL human race. Luke 4:33
    So hearing, believing, receiving and repentance. Then live it.

  3. The New Testament (NT) makes it abundantly clear that to become a follower of Christ one must be “born again”; immersed into water as the death of our Lord, to arise a new creature. Where is the need in any of the good Dr’s references does this appear? Nowhere that I can find. Beware of false prophets as the NT has warned us. Do not be deceived by them out of emotionalism. Your very eternity will depend on you understanding the NT and not the 99% truth of mere men, leaving out the very important 1% that will either save you or condemn you. Please read the entire New Testament and understand truthfully everything we were TOLD TO DO in order to be saved.

  4. just try to do everything the new testament says you should. You cant. If we could be saved through works the Isrealites would have been saved by their works and we would not have needed a sacrifice. You would have to be perfect to do everything the new testament says and we obviously are not. Isaiah says our “ALL our righteousness is as filthy rags.” and the Apostle Paul says “what I dont want to do is what I practice”.

  5. I am so blessed to have found Dr. Youssef on TV and now on the internet, having his teachings broadcast. So understandable and Biblical, and standing “on the firm foundation” as found in God’s Word.
    Thank you for spreading the WORD here and all over the world. May God continue to bless your ministry.

  6. Pastors should live with minimal need for money and material things. If Dr.Youssef was a true man of GOD he would give up all of his money and property. He is out for himself just like all greedy people.
    He doesn’t believe in what he is preaching. He is a con artist. The good lord will have the last word!

  7. Alan you are so wrong, Michael is blessed , because of his faithfulness. Many people were blessed with riches in the Bible, King David — Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Job were rich and yet were also approved by God. Just as poverty doesn’t guarantee virtue, wealth does not guarantee ….

  8. I see that he has written 35 books my question is why would God put the message in a book for him to sell when many retired, poor people and elderly people cannot afford the books. Jesus said freely you receive freely again he received it free so he should not charge for it. I believe this way he is the pastor of a mega church why not make an appeal to the people after he has gone to the publisher and asked how much would they charge to publish x amount of books then come back and tell the people how much each book would cost and raise that money and give those books away and tell the people if they want to give a donation to him they can other than that I don’t have very much respect for preachers and anyone selling the gospel and all the TV preachers are worth millions and turned off with them. I am a retired businessman and the only way you get rich is you have ice water in your vein not Jesus blood flowing through Jesus said foxes have holes and birds have nest but the son of man has nowhere to lay his head he didn’t own a Mansion neither Rolls-Royce neither a Bentley… I have another problem they draw a check from the church they come in with the camera film the service then have another outreach they make money from it. Tell me how can you operate like that in the circular world like that. Please people wake up. I am a preacher I don’t sell the gospel because people will not see any difference in me and the other charlatans.

  9. Dr Youssef is truly a man of God. He is worthy of respect, and I believe God will reward him greatly for his ministry to thousands of people around the world. His TV program “Leading the Way” has blessed my heart many times. He is so real and full of the Holy Spirit. His teaching about the way of Salvation thru Jesus is the ONLY WAY to get to heaven. Jesus Christ is the only way! I hope to meet him in heaven one day. Many Pastors and evangelists have received more than what Dr Joussef has made over the years of his ministry. Billy Graham, David Jerimiah, and others I could mention.
    “This earth is not our home, we’re just a passing through.” Dr Joussef is truly a man of God!!!
