America's Apostate Churches!

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write... I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” —Revelation 3:14-16

       The Devil is sly and he uses the arrogance, greed and ignorance of religious men to blind them from the truth. Today's evangelical circles are complacently apostate, completely silent regarding the evils plaguing America. It is tragic. All across America ministers are selling books and hosting pastor's conventions, but they are virtually silent concerning the wickednesses of our society. It is apostasy. Every church in America ought to be crying aloud publicly against the evils of abortion, homosexuality, pornography, et cetera.

I'm not endorsing Fred Phelps, but his methods come MUCH closer to being right than most pastors in America who hide behind closed doors in their pompous arrogance. America needs more Billy Sundays, John the Baptists, George Whitefields and Jonathan Edwards.

The Damnable World of Joel Osteen

God pity false prophets like Joel Osteen who never take a stand against sin. Mr. Osteen is nothing more than a greedy businessman and motivation speaker, and a disgrace to the name of Jesus Christ. John the Baptist could have trimmed his sermons, turned a blind eye to Herod's adultery, avoided telling people they needed to repent; but he told the truth. In sharp contrast, Joel Osteen makes one nauseous. He doesn't mention the word "repent" until after his sermonette is over, as to avoid offending anyone.

2nd Timothy 4:3 perfectly describes Joel Osteen and his congregation... For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.” Joel Osteen is a greedy televangelist who's afraid to tell the truth of God's Word, lest he lose money. Judgment Day is coming... “And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” Joel Osteen deceitfully brags of not taking a salary from his church, while making tens-of-millions of dollars from apostate book sales. Woe unto Joel and Victoria Osteen.

Would to God that Joel Osteen would tell people the truth, i.e., that they're a bunch of dirty, rotten, hell-deserving sinners bound for hellfire in their sins. They're GUILTY! Osteen alleges that people already know this; but they do not want to deal with the issue of sin, which is why they come to hear Osteen's apostate sermons.

In sharp contrast to Osteen's milquetoast sermons, please read this brief excerpt from Jonathan Edward's famous sermon, SINNERS IN THE HANDS OF AN ANGRY GOD...

“The God that holds you over the pit of hell, much as one holds a spider, or some loathsome insect over the fire, abhors you, and is dreadfully provoked: his wrath towards you burns like fire; he looks upon you as worthy of nothing else, but to be cast into the fire; he is of purer eyes than to bear to have you in his sight; you are ten thousand times more abominable in his eyes, than the most hateful venomous serpent is in ours. You have offended him infinitely more than ever a stubborn rebel did his prince; and yet it is nothing but his hand that holds you from falling into the fire every moment. It is to be ascribed to nothing else, that you did not go to hell the last night; that you was suffered to awake again in this world, after you closed your eyes to sleep. And there is no other reason to be given, why you have not dropped into hell since you arose in the morning, but that God's hand has held you up. There is no other reason to be given why you have not gone to hell, since you have sat here in the house of God, provoking his pure eyes by your sinful wicked manner of attending his solemn worship. Yea, there is nothing else that is to be given as a reason why you do not this very moment drop down into hell.”

If Joel Osteen preached a sermon like that, he'd lose half his congregation overnight. Today's superior, arrogant, thin-skinned, pompous, selfish, spoiled rotten America is INTOLERANT to the truth. Woe unto America! Souls are Dying Joel.

America's Dead Churches

It was Billy Sunday, who nearly 100 years ago said...

"It would be a godsend if the Church would suffer persecution today; she hasn't suffered it for hundreds of years. She is growing rich and lagging behind. Going back."

-Billy Sunday, The Need for Revivals, From "Billy Sunday: The Man and His Message", by William T. Ellis, Philadelphia: John C. Winston Co., 1914

Evangelical Christianity today is more resemblant of the 1,200 lb. pig I saw at the Wisconsin State Fair many years ago. It seems that most pastors are only interested in obtaining more money... gimme, gimme, gimme. It is not fair for a church congregation to have to finance the escapades of a pastor's selfish interests. And then that pastor heads over to The Holy Land on vacation, while most of his church members can barely afford to drive to the next town. It is apostasy!

"Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God" (John 12:42,43).

There were Pharisees who believed on Jesus; but were unwilling to take a stand for God for fear of losing the praise of men. This same cowardliness saturates evangelical circles today in America. The average Christian minister in America is afraid of losing the praise of men, which equates to loss of revenues. Shame on them! God must come first and His Word must be preached to the world.

At Ease On Zion

It is sinful how so many ministry leaders today make frequent trips to Hawaii and the Holyland; while they do little to fight against sin, contend for the Christian faith by exposing false doctrines, and cry aloud against the wickednesses of our time. Sadly, the few pastors who do preach the truth are cowards, afraid to publicly take a stand, and the message never leaves the comfort of their church walls. It is apostasy!

Here is a lengthy list of compromised, apostate, milquetoast, ecumenical, prophets of Baal that I wouldn't give you a dime for...

Bob Bell, Doug Sager, J. Harold Smith, James Dobson, Chuck Swindoll, Charles Stanley, Alistair Begg, Dennis Rainey, Ron Stewart, Chip Ingram, Mart DeHann, Steve Brown, John MacArthur, David Jeremiah, Steve Arterburn, Sam Polson, Dan Corner, Adrian Rogers, Andrew Wommack, Chuck Bentley, Bil Gephardt, Fredrick Brabson Sr., RC Sproul, June Hunt, Hank Hanegraaff, Joni Eareckson Tada, Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron, Paul Washer, Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, and hundreds of others.

These ministers are what's wrong with the church in America today!!! They are wishy-washy and never stick-their-neck-out for God. They don't dare offend anyone, especially their peers in the ministry. They write scores of worthless books to inoculate people from receiving genuine Christianity. They all look and act like a bunch of spoiled elites. They're all in the ministry to make a buck.

We need some John the Baptists in America to cry aloud against Herod's adultery (Mark 6:18)! We need some Billy Sundays to cry aloud against booze, dancing and gambling! Rise up oh Christian! Where are the men of God who hate sin and love the sinner? Where are the men of God who walk with God, and get ANGRY over the wickednesses of our society in which we live? Where are the men of God who are willing to be counted as a fool for the cause of Christ?

All I see are these Shirley Temple, milquetoast, girly-boy types, like Joel Osteen who didn't have enough gonads on the Larry King Show to say that Christ-rejecting Jews weren't going to Heaven. Truly the love of money is the root of all evil as 1st Timothy 6:10 warns. Joel Osteen couldn't preach his way out of a paper bag. It makes God vomit... "I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth" (Revelation 3:15,16). Joel Osteen is lukewarm.

Apostate RBC Ministries

I was recently looking at different contemporary ministries online, including RBC Ministries whose President is Mart DeHaan (Martin DeHaan's grandson). Sadly, they promote the New International Version [NIV] of the Bible on their website. By looking at their ministries' webpage, you'd never get the impression that they take a stand for anything. They're just collecting donations. It makes me sick that hardly any Christians nowadays have anything negative to say about anything. What is wrong with Christians today? We are engrossed in a raging battle in America today against evil and all I see are covetous believers who want to make money. It seems that everyone's got a "new" book to sell. They're no better than the "den of thieves" Jesus condemned in Matthew 21:13. It's a shame. RBC Ministries didn't forget the "donate" button though. Don't any believers care that homosexuals are trying to force their sick culture upon our children? Why doesn't Mart DeHaan publicly speak out against this rot in America? What about abortion? What about pornography? It is apostasy. They drive their new cars, and live in their big homes, and eat the best of foods, and sit idle while their brothers are on the frontlines fighting the Devil... "Shall your brethren go to war, and shall ye sit here?" (Numbers 32:6). Repent!

Apostate Moody Ministries

Moody Bible Institute is about as pathetic as you can get nowadays, honoring heretics like John MacArthur at their annual Founder's Week and teaching the heresy of Lordship Salvation to their students. Their female students dress immodestly, wearing tight pants and halter tops, their bookstore sells so-called Christian Rock 'N' Roll music (i.e., the Devil's music) to the students, et cetera. This is apostasy! Moody today is a spiritual toilet bowl.

Whatever happened to the horses and carriages that Dwight L. Moody used to use to bring poor families to church in the Chicagoland area? Why no bus ministry today? Why has the Moody Memorial Church abandoned soulwinning? God deliver us from church-pew Christianity! The early believers in the Book of Acts DIDN'T have a church building. Their ministry was in the public streets of Jerusalem. They made people very angry with the truth of God's Word. People either repented towards God or picked up stones to hurl at Jesus' disciples. How does this compare to the sissy-pants type ministers today who dare not rock-the-boat or offend anyone? Offend Them!

If you're a believer, and you're sitting idle on the sidelines during the raging battle today in America against sin, then you ought to be ashamed. Matthew 20:6, "And about the eleventh hour he [Jesus] went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?" Believers today need to Make Some Noise!

Lukewarm Christianity (which is no Christianity at all)

There is something very wrong with America's Christians today, who are eerily silent concerning the evils which saturate American society. God hates LUKEWARM Christianity (Revelation 3:14-16).

Homosexuals are everywhere and we ought to expose them for the Bible-hating, abnormal, mentally ill and spiritually rebellious sinners they are. Pastor Lon Solomon says homosexuality and abortion are only "minor concerns" in his church of 10,000. Youth Pastor, Tony Jones, says that he believes homosexuals can still live a Biblical lifestyle pleasing to God. Jones is an unsaved heretic. I don't believe in condemning people, because the Bible condemns ALL OF US; but we need to protect our children from the evils of homosexuality and take an uncompromising stand against immorality! Homosexuality is immoral. No one has a right to teach children that it's ok to be IMMORAL.

In 1998, Ellen DeGeneres exploited the murder of a University of Wyoming homosexual student named Matthew Shepard, using the boy's death to demonize Bible-believing Christians. Read some of the hateful and malicious statement Ellen made publicly about Christians...

Ellen DeGeneres declares war

October 23, 1998

Ellen DeGeneres came to Washington last week, joined a bipartisan demonstration led by congressmen and senators on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, and declared, "This is a war." Who is she fighting and why? She is fighting you because of what you believe...

The "war" that Ellen DeGeneres talked about was a war against Jewish and Christian belief itself.

Listen to what she said to a crowd of several thousand as the beautiful dome of the U.S. Capitol loomed brightly above her on a crisp autumn evening.

"This is what I was trying to stop. This is exactly why I did what I did," DeGeneres told the cheering throng, referring to the canceled prime-time television show in which she tried to normalize the practice of homosexuality.

She made it clear that her principal enemy in this cause is the "religious right," Christianity in general, and people who raise their children to think that homosexual activity is wrong.

First, she attacked a series of newspaper ads published last summer by the Christian Coalition, the Family Research Council, the American Family Association and a dozen other Christian organizations-ads that promoted the idea that those who have fallen into a homosexual lifestyle can rise out of it and change for the better.

"I don't see full-page ads saying `Stop the Hate, Stop the Violence." said DeGeneres. "These same evil, idiotic, so-called God-loving people who use the Bible to justify their hate I'm sure still feel deep down that blacks aren't equal to whites because the Bible was also used to justify slavery."

She then compared such people to Hitler and those who were complicit in the Holocaust. "When Hitler was killing all the Jews," she said, "the church was silent, they did nothing."

Then she made her fundamental point: Children should be taught that the homosexual lifestyle is a good thing. "Please raise your children with love and not judgment," she said. "Tell them that everybody has the right to love whom they want to love."

DeGeneres stomped off to the wings to hug and kiss Hollywood actress Ann Heche. Heche mounted the stage and shouted, "I am so glad to be Ellen DeGeneres's wife." [emphasis added]


Ellen DeGeneres is an evil woman who hates the Bible, hates the God of the Bible and hates Bible-believing Christians. Consider the following two horrible statements made by Ellen DeGeneres from the preceding article quote...

Such deranged statements coming from one of America's most influential lesbians ought to upset every born-again Christian in America. Ellen DeGeneres (or degenerate) calls God-fearing Christians “evil, idiotic and hateful.” She's the evil idiot. Only a complete fool would spit in God's face by condemning Bible-believing Christians for preaching against sin. Homosexuality is a horrible sin which guarantees the judgment of God (Romans 1:24-32).

Children ought to be taught that homosexuality is sick, abnormal, shameful, unnatural, morally reprehensible and most of all... a SIN. What DeGeneres labels as “hate” is obedience to God. Ephesians 5:11 commands all believers to refute (Greek: elencho, which means “to expose”) all works of darkness... “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” This means we are to expose homosexuality for the vile, disgusting, shameful, unhealthy sin that it is. Ellen DeGeneres errantly calls this idiotic and evil. No Ellen, you are a God-hating rebel who chooses to live in unrepentant sin. Proverb 29:27 proclaims, “An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.” This is the root of the matter. Christians are evil in the eyes of homosexuals, and homosexuals are evil in the eyes of Christians. There can be NO harmony between sodomites and born-again Christians who love the Word of God.

Sadly, America's churches are virtually silent concerning the evils of homosexuality. Ellen DeGeneres needs to be exposed as a threat to America's children. Several Fortune 500 companies have embraced Miss DeGeneres, featuring her in commercials. This is wickedness. Proverb 26:1 states, “As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool.” Ellen DeGeneres is a fool undeserving of any honor; yet Godless heathens who hate Jesus Christ sinfully promote and honor her. Ellen DeGeneres is a disgrace to America and to the name of decency. It's not about love and acceptance; it's about obeying God's morally perfect Law.

God wants His children to rise out of complacency, and not be lukewarm concerning sin. We must not be afraid to speak our opinion in public concerning the awfulness of sin. I complain frequently when I see smut and offensive things in public. I let people know where I stand. Of course, we need to discern each situation and use wisdom accordingly.

The Sad Conclusion

It appears that most believers today have given up on the war against sin and evil. Even America's Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches (my camp) have become a sorry bunch, increasingly focusing upon making money rather than preaching the truth at all cost. You CAN'T have both!...

“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon [money].”

Pastor's are either going to preach the truth and end up struggling financially (like the Apostle Paul did) or else they're going to sellout, compromise their message, suppress the truth, and appeal to the apostate, thin-skinned, woefully ignorant, carnal believer which saturate our churches today. God is sick of vacationing pastors and church-pew Christianity! If your pastor vacations often, while 95% of his church cannot afford to do so, find another church! A pastor is supposed to be a servant, which is what the word “minister” means. Most pastors today selfishly hound their congregation for more money, but the pastor and his family always seem to come out on top financially in the end. It's called manipulating people and it's wrong. God deliver us from shady car-salesman pastors.

Some pastors and evangelists teach bizarre unbiblical ideas concerning money... whatever it takes to brainwash naive people into surrendering their money to finance his own personal ministry agendas. Too many pastors today are enslaved to their own carnal ego, saturated with selfish pride and covetousness; but spiritually in denial, evidenced by their intense desire for financial success and unwillingness to humble themselves to preach the WHOLE truth. Money shouldn't be an issue in one's ministry; but sadly, it has become the MAIN ISSUE in most churches today (at the tragic expense of preaching the truth)! It is God's ministry; not ours! Somewhere along the way believers have forgotten that it's our duty to seek out, teach and defend THE TRUTH... "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32). God expects every believer to contend for the Christian faith (Jude 1:3).

There is a direct correlation between a pastor's LOVE FOR MONEY versus the AMOUNT OF TRUTH HE PREACHES! Tragically, most of today's evangelical ministers love money more than truth, which is why they're so publicly silent concerning sin, the moral meltdown of America and the blatant evils being committed by our government leaders.

"On moral matters where right and wrong are involved, and where the Bible clearly speaks, many preachers have so compromised and sold out, and are so afraid of their congregations, that they cannot give the clear Word of God. God pity the preacher who is afraid to preach against sin just because somebody will cry 'politics'! "

A believer's love for the Lord Jesus Christ can only truly be measured by one's hatred for sin and evil... “Ye that love the LORD, hate evil...
