I used to be a big-time disciple of Paul Washer. I had dozens of his sermons on tape, I distributed them freely through mixes or "sermon jams" on youtube.
I used to think that Jesus loved me and that Paul Washer was helping lead me to that Jesus. I now see that Jesus loves me, and that Paul Washer wanted to lead me away from that Jesus.
I am a "died-in-the-wool" "paul-washerist." I could tell you every bit of trivia about his sermons, the majority of his views on any sermon he's ever preached, and his answer to any question. I used to listen to him day-in-and-day-out, because I thought he was inspiring revival in my soul.
All of Paul Washer's doctrines hinge on the certainty of the great majority of the human race burning in eternal Hell, and this did more to damage my view of God than anything I've ever believed. He says, and I paraphrase:
"Humans in their natural fallen state are like orcs in Lord of the Rings, you want to cheer when they get their head chopped off"
"If God created the entire human race for no other purpose than to send them to Hell he would still be loving and merciful"
"The modern American church (insert baseless allegation here) always teaches (insert 2nd baseless allegation here) which is contrary to all of (insert baseless, unproveable statement about Church History) all of church history."
"God didn't have to love you, but because you are in Christ he does. If you are not in Christ however, you are a worm, a dragon, a good-for-nothing but to be thrown out in the mud. But if you are in Christ, trust me he loves you more than anything!!! Just make sure to examine yourself, [i.e. stress yourself out, wear yourself into the ground daily trying to make sure you are saved] if you are not, you are demonstrating that you are not a true Christian, and you need to repent so you can know you are truly saved."
"If you are not repenting every day, you are not saved."
"My views are the views of the Church for 2,000 years and anything else is heresy and the teaching of false prophets."
"Many people who proclaim the name of Jesus [i.e. show contrition, perhaps even knowledge of Jesus will not be saved"
Some of these paraphrases are a little generous, but I believe they communicate the gist of his messages.
Basically if you disagree with him you are a heretic, or distorting true theology, or hurting the cause of the Church. He is the closest thing I've ever seen to a cult leader without being an actual cult.
I tried so hard to fall in love with his God, he sounded so right and I believed him so intensely, because I wanted to seek Jesus so badly, but the only thing Paul Washer's teachings ever did in the long run of many years was make me hate God.
He is a poor teacher, and in my opinion little more than an eccentric psycho/sociopath who somehow got a hold of a microphone.
