Greg Laurie Teaches False Doctrines At Latest Harvest Crusade
"Listen to this. Jesus Christ spoke more about Hell than all the other preachers of the Bible put together," Laurie said. "He knows of its reality. Know this: the last thing God wants is for anyone to go to Hell."
"Newsflash! God doesn't send people to Hell. You send yourself there," Laurie explained. "Hell is not made for people. Hell, according to Jesus, was made for the Devil and his angels. Listen, friend, if you end up in Hell one day, you will have to practically climb over Jesus to get there."

Except that 1) no one has to practically climb over Jesus to go to Hell. Apparently this is a Jesus that isn't big enough to be a block between man and Hell for most people, and 2) God is the Righteous Judge of all souls and He absolutely sends people to Hell:
Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.
Rev 20:15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
Mat 7:23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'
Mat 25:41 "Then He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;
Scripture doesn't say that Hell wasn't meant to have people in there. What it says is that the rebellious beings--human and angelic--all earn the same punishment.
CP also reported that "According to Harvest Crusades, over 3,960 people in attendance at Angel Stadium decided to proclaim or recommit their lives for Christ following Laurie's address."
Furthermore, It also reported that on Friday night 37,000 people were at the crusade, with more watching online. This means over 37,000 + people heard false teaching (and yes, he led them in the mythical "Sinner's Prayer") and will likely repeat the false doctrines.
This is ironic considering he also said this recently:
He explained that the Bible shows "in the last days, there would be false teachers. And, it also says that in the End Times ... there would be an apostasy. When someone gets up and says that the Bible is not the Word of God, I really don't care what their point is. That, to me, is apostasy."
