Promise Keepers Founder: Unconverted Jews will be “Toast”

From the LA Times:

…Bill McCartney, a former University of Colorado football coach and co-founder of the evangelical Promise Keepers movement for men, which became huge in the 1990s, has had a devil of a time getting his own apocalyptic campaign off the ground.

It’s called The Road to Jerusalem, and its mission is to convert Jews to Christianity — while there is still time.

“Our whole purpose is to hasten the end times,” he said. “The Bible says Jews will be brought to jealousy when they see Christians and Jewish believers together as one — they’ll want to be a part of that. That’s going to signal Jesus’ return.

Jews and others who don’t accept Jesus, he added matter-of-factly, “are toast.”

Well, that’s traditional Christian exclusivity for you. I discussed this in relation to Jews recently, as it happens.
