A Nation Not Worthy Of Pastor Jack Hyles
Hebrews 11:36, “And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (Of whom the world was not worthy...”
by David J. Stewart | August 2012 | 2,285 Christ-honoring sermons by Dr. Jack Hyles
Every century or so, a man comes along who excels them all—a man of God, a man's man, a leader of leader—rising up above the rest of his generation in wisdom, courage, character and zeal for the Lord. Jack Hyles (1926-2001) was such a man. Please listen to a clip from Dr. Hyle's sermon titled, The Young People Shouted While The Old People Wept (a great sermon which reveals Dr. Hyle's heart). By the way, it has taken me three days to write this article, so It's not a reactionary message. These things need to be said. “The bomb is out of the closet,” as Brother Hyles once said. I'm still going to hold back a bit on names, but I have something to say in defense of my friend and the great American hero, Pastor Jack Hyles!!!
*NOTE BY DAVID J. STEWART: I love Brother Hyles and he is unquestionably my favorite preacher, but he mentions the SHEkinah Glory in the previous MP3 sermon clip, which is satanic is origin. No doubt, brother Hyles heard the term somewhere and used it; however, the term refers to the feminine aspect of God in Kaballah, the Talmud and Judaism. The Holy Bible DOESN'T teach a female side of God. The term "Shekinah" is not mentioned even once in the King James Bible. The glory of God over the Mercy Seat is NOT the Shekinah! Brother Hyles taught his preacher boys, including me, to be loyal to truth and principle, and not to men or institutions. The heresy of Zionism has crept into many churches. Modern Israel is NOT the fulfillment of Bible prophecy Amen and amen!
The United States of America owes a debt of gratitude to pastor Jack Hyles that cannot adequately be expressed in words. This wicked country is not worthy of God's goodness. Pastor Jack Hyles was a gift from God to America, preaching a message of revival for 55-years!!! He performed over 3,000 weddings and thousands of funerals, ordained hundreds of ministers, and flew over 7,000,000 miles to preaching engagements to save America. Instead of listening to the message, our nation has persecuted and killed the messenger (Matthew 22:1-7). We have done very foolishly! God gives us a man of God and wicked people attack him, gnashing upon him with their teeth, trying to discredit his labors for Christ.
tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice
cannot sleep forever.”
—Thomas Jefferson, U.S. President 1801-1809
We Are At Spiritual War With Darkness And The Forces Of Satan
It's no coincidence that all the hordes of Hell are attacking Pastor Jack Hyles recently. The remaining Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches in America are giving the Devil a black eye. If you want to join a DEAD Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) church, then knock yourself out, but all you're doing is riding the Titanic down into the depths of apostasy. The SBC now officially uses their own proprietary Bible perversion called the Holman Christian Standard Bible. Let me tell you men, if America is going to be saved, it will not be the women. Only preaching preachers can save America! Why do you think the Devil is attacking Dr. Hyles even 11-years after his death?
It's because of Christ-honoring websites like mine and other faithful ministries who are trying to keep Pastor Hyles preaching alive. Listen to his sermons and you'll agree that church pulpits today are DEAD in comparison to Brother Hyles. The Globalists fear Dr. Hyles, because his legacy is more deadly than his personal ministry. So they are desperate to discredit him anyway possible, paying off people to trash his name and say all manner of evil against him. How much did Mr. Microsoft pay you to slander him? Whatever happened to honor? A small handful of preachers today could turn America around if they walked with God and preached against sin and proclaimed the simplicity of the Gospel with fervent zeal, like Pastor Jack Hyles did...
"Old-fashioned, Spirit-filled, Christ-honoring, sin-hating, soul-winning, Bible preaching! It is the hope of the church! It is the hope of the nation! It is the hope of the world!" —Pastor Jack Hyles
Evangelist Billy Sunday single-handedly turned the tide and brought about the Prohibition Era in our nation between 1919 and 1933. The problem wasn't Prohibition that caused mob corruption, but rather, mob corruption itself. Today they're shooting people's pets, kicking in front doors, slamming people's head's to the floor, breaking limbs, confiscating homes... all over a plant that people smoke; while people can go get plastered on over-the-counter prescription drugs (and they are). It's the biggest killer of youth today. Prohibition was an early attempt to legislate morality, which cannot be done.
Listen to what our second U.S. President, John Adams (whose wisdom was key to the drafting of our Constitution) said...
“We have not government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” —U.S. President John Adams
This is why preachers are being gnashed upon by the wicked today. Thousands of wicked people have been desperately trying to turn Brother Hyles into the Antichrist, even in the face of NO EVIDENCE against him. Meanwhile, all of the millions of lives saved, changed and salvaged from the depths of darkness are ignored, forgotten and even despised by this wicked generation of bloodthirsty hypocrites. John Adams is so right! The U.S. Constitution simply outlines our God-given liberties, but if people choose to embrace wickedness, then no government can control them. What does this mean? It means that you can pass all the laws you want, but you cannot legislate morality.
Many of Chicago's children live in fear throughout the week. The brother is dead. The father is in prison. The mother is a prostitute. Those kids grow up in those hellish conditions, thinking it's normal. The only good thing in their life, literally, is that church bus that shows up on Sunday to bring them to Sunday School to learn about Jesus Christ. Child Protection Services (CPS) would rather see the kids in government custody (where many are molested). CPS are God-haters! Public schools couldn't care less about them, ready to call CPS. The police will simply hand them over to CPS. No one truly cares about those families. CPS is really Child Predatory Services!!! Search YouTube for the kidnapping, drugging and rape of Foster children and you'll be angered. The Godless government doesn't know the first thing about hurting families. They can't even help themselves (although they do help themselves in a greedy sense).
CPS is controlled by the evil courts, who operate under “policy” and not rule of law. If you aren't familiar with the scam, prepare to be shocked, The 4th Branch Of Administrative Government. People who criticize Dr. Hyles either don't care or don't realize just how much good has been accomplished by First Baptist Church of Hammond, and all the children who've been rescued, literally, by a church that loves them and reaches out to them with the Word of God. For many of those children, the love of a Christian bus worker is the only love they've ever received. Godless atheists and church-haters would rather see the children die, commit suicide or end up strung out of drugs. Are you that kind of monster? Thank God for the Bus Ministry in churches all across America!
I still can't believe that less than 6% of atheists were able to remove the Word of God in 1963 from the lives of the 94%. Communists did that! Remember what John Adams said, “We have not government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” In other words, you cannot legislate morality. Alex Jones is a great patriot, but he will fail to save America if our nation doesn't return to faith in the God of the Bible. Look at how much the wicked are having a heyday attacking preachers these days. It just reveals as a thermometer how far gone America truly is.
Critics Called Jesus Mad, Demon-Possessed, A Bastard, A Deceiver
Jesus' own family rejected Him (John 7:5). People called Jesus a bastard (John 8:41). They said Jesus was demon-possessed (John 7:20). They called Jesus crazy (John 10:20). They called Jesus a deceiver (Matthew 27:63). Jesus said that the servant is not greater than his Lord. John 15:20, “Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.” And so it is in this untoward and evil generation. If they assassinated the character of the perfect, sinless, holy Lamb of God, then pray tell me what do you think they'll do to us as Christians.
With all the wicked men living in open adultery (like Gene Simmons of KISS who boasts of having sex with over 5,000 women), what does it say about a generation who is DESPERATELY attempting to make an adulterer out of the greatest man of God of the 20th century, an innocent man, with no evidence against him? This is a hypocritical wicked generation!!!
Longtime Hollywood director Paul Verhoeven authored a book in 2007 titled, “JESUS OF NAZARETH.” The book portrays Jesus as having been conceived after a Roman soldier brutally raped Jesus' mother, Mary. Verhoeven has already received financiering to produce a movie based upon his book. They're not only denying Christ's virgin birth, but claiming that Mary was raped by a soldier and conceived the Lord. Hell will be hot enough for the wicked.
It's this same wicked generation of rebels that attack Pastor Jack Hyles. Please don't let the critics rob you of the blessings of the preaching of Pastor Jack Hyles. There's no comparison. Listen to his sermons and you'll see that he loved his people and you'll also see why his enemies hate him so much, just like they hate the King James Bible, hate the Gospel of free-grace and hate an authoritative God Who demands that you do it His way or it's the highway! This evil generation has a serious problem with God-ordained authority!
destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and
—Abraham Lincoln, U.S. President, 1861-1865
Beware Of False Rumors Of Adultery
Pastor Jack Hyles loved his wife and they celebrated well over 50 years of marriage together. Mrs. Hyles faithfully and loyally sat behind Dr. Hyles in the choir throughout his 55-years of ministry. Don't listen to the hateful liars of this wicked generation who attack preachers who uphold the King James Bible and the old-time religion. Satan hates Pastor Hyles and his ministry.
Dr. Hyles dedicated the last decades of his ministry to preaching the BOOK (the King James Bible), the BLOOD (the literal, physical, blood sacrifice of Christ upon the mercy seat in Heaven) and the BODY (the local New Testament Church). Malicious people lie and say that Dr. Hyles hated his wife, concealed an adulterous affair for decades, the woman's husband was a loyal follower of Brother Hyles the whole time knowing what was going on, and none of the 100,000 church members ever saw it. To date no one has shown forth one piece of evidence. But you, say, “Oh you can't prove his innocence.“ Yeah, exactly, “and you can't prove his guilt either!” So shut your mouth!
There's no evidence of Dr. Hyle's committing adultery, only garbage being said by bitter people who have a vested interest (an agenda to hate). The best evidence they can come up with is a curtain between his secretary's office and his. Did anyone ever stop to think that the best way to protect yourself as a pastor during counseling is to have a curtain? This prevents being alone with the opposite sex during counseling sessions, because your secretary is a witness. Pastors are under attack these days and you can't be too careful. I'd have a curtain too. I think it's a great idea.
In addition, what Dr. Hyles' critics won't tell you is that Brother Hyles had a full-time security guard standing outside his office ALL THE TIME. There was a security guard parked in front of his home round-the-clock. Everywhere that Pastor Hyles went, he was escorted by a security guard (one which I knew personally). The Communists wanted Pastor Hyles dead! The Devil doesn't mind if you slander and tear down good men (and Brother Hyles was a good man), but if you expose the Devil's crowd, LOOK OUT! Dr. Hyles was on Satan's top-five-list of enemies.
What started as a baseless rumor has now become as a proven fact in the minds of naive people. It's just like the bogus lies of evolution. There's no proof whatsoever, but people teach it as gospel truth. You should never accept anything as truth unless you have solid proof in front of you. Allegations are NOT proof and no one should be tarnished and criticized because someone spreads an allegation or rumors. Lying is an art, which people commonly use to destroy others whom they seek to discredit. The bottom line is that NO ONE has ever proven Dr. Hyles is guilty of adultery. You're a wicked person if you condemn a man based upon unfounded allegations.
Here's a wonderful MP3 sermon clip from Dr. Hyles' sermon, THE ONE AND ONLY YOU. Here's a quote from the sermon...
“Do you know why God made you? God didn't make you to be a great preacher. God didn't make you to be a great singer, or a great teacher, or a great educator. God made you to need Him!”
SOURCE: Dr. Jack Hyles (from the sermon, THE ONE AND ONLY YOU)
In the sermon, Joseph Forgiving His Brethren, Dr. Hyles Biblically teaches us to leave the vengeance to God. It's not our place to get even with people who hurt us. The evil people trying to destroy the name of Jack Hyles are hurting churches all around the world pastored by Hyles-Anderson graduates. God will get the critics, rest assured. They aren't interested in righteousness nor truth; but rather, are hateful against authority and God sees their wicked hearts (Proverbs 24:12). It's not the King James Bible crowd attacking Brother Hyles, but the Bible-correcting gang. This battle for Dr. Hyle's character and name is far more important than many people realize, because Dr. Hyles is considered the pioneer of the modern Independent Fundamental Movement.
By the way, one of Dr. Hyles most open critics has been Robert L. Sumner of the Biblical Evangelist. Decades ago after the graduation of Dr. John R. Rice (1895-1980) to Heaven, Dr. Hyles recommended Curtis Hutson instead of Sumner to replace John R. Rice as chief editor of the Sword Of The Lord decades ago. The board of directors took Brother Hyle's advice and picked Dr. Curtis Hutson (1934-1995). This explains a lot of things, evidencing why Sumner may be so vindictive against Pastor Hyles.
When I see Brother Hyles, I see hundreds of deaf and blind people coming to meet with their church family each week. We were a family at church (a church with a heart). We had a marvellous deaf and blind ministry. You'll never hear about the truck-stop ministry, or all the truck drivers who came to the church for a homecooked chili-supper each Sunday. The truck drivers were provided free transportation to and from the church. They heard the Gospel and many got saved. Amen! Brother Hyles' critics won't tell you about the truck-stop ministry (because they couldn't care less about helping others; they certainly never lift a finger to help anyone). Those wearied truck drivers, who face temptations and difficulties on the job continually, found an oasis in the desert of sin to meet with a church family who fed them, witnessed the Gospel to them, and genuinely cared about them. No, you'll never hear about these wonderful events.
If you didn't notice it in the background sermon clip, then please listen to Dr. Hyles speak on the struggle of the church today. The clip from Dr. Hyle's sermon titled, The Young People Shouted While The Old People Wept (a life-changing MP3 sermon which reveals Dr. Hyle's heart). I've mentioned this sermon twice, because it's important. We are at war ladies and gentleman.
And let me say this... I don't believe the allegations against Brother Hyles, but he was a sinner and that's no surprise, for you and I are sinners too. Did you ever stop to realize that one-third of the Bible was penned by murderers (Moses, David and Paul). David committed adultery with Bathsheba, and she got pregnant, so David had her husband Uriah killed. God didn't seek damage control and go find another preacher. God still used David to pen the Psalms. In fact, Psalm 51 wouldn't be in the Bible if David hadn't sinned, for it is his prayer of repentance. Before God spoke the universe into existence, He knew that David would commit adultery and murder. You'd better burn the Psalms.
Now I'm not condoning sin, but NO ONE has proven anything against Pastor Hyles. Hearsay and the testimony of Hyles-haters is more than highly questionable. Where's the proof? I'll never understand why people are so quick to throw away a man's entire ministry because he MIGHT be less than perfect. Dr. Hyles used to say, Don't be afraid to admit to people that you have feet of clay, but don't ever show 'em your feet. I'm a big sinner and so are you. People love to destroy each other. Satan accuses believers before God day and night (Revelation 12:10). When you spend your time looking for the faults of others instead of praying and being concerned about lost souls, you are sinning!!!
You critics will never find a church to please you, because your pastor has to walk a fine line of perfection to keep you happy. Again, I'm not permitting sin, but I am saying, stop being destructive. Christians should defend God's man unless they have proof, not assume he's guilty unless his innocence can be proven. Guilt must be proven, not innocence. People are so accustomed to the trial, jury and execution-style of the newsmedia that they have lost all sense of what justice means anymore.
All God's men are sinners. You're not a hot-shot, you're just a piece of dust held together by some moisture. Samson went with a prostitute. Yet he still judged Israel for 20-years. Abraham lied. Sarah laughed in God's face. Esau cheated Esau and deceived his father, Isaac. Noah got drunk. Lot moved into Sodom, took alcohol out and committed incest with both of his daughters, getting them pregnant. Jonah ran from God. Jeremiah quit the ministry. Peter cursed the name of Jesus and denied knowing Him. Demas loved the world and forsook Paul. Ananias and Sapphira stole from God. Moses had a vicious hot-temper (smiting the rock twice, killing an Egyptian, smashing the Ten Commandments, et cetera). Thomas doubted the Lord. Moses sister, Miriam, complained against God. All of God's people were losers. So who are you?
The mature Christian has the proper Biblical attitude, WE HAVE SINNED!!! You'll find that phrase mentioned 23-times in the Old Testament... WE HAVE SINNED! We have all done foolishly. I'm not saying that people should look the other way if their pastor sins openly, I'm saying that you shouldn't be willing to believe unfounded gossip without proof. I refuse to believe that a man or woman is guilty until there is proof against them (and you'd want it that way if YOU were the one being accused). Yes, you would!!! Matthew 7:12 is THE GOLDEN RULE, that is, do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If you don't obey this Scripture, then Jesus said that you will be judged BY YOUR OWN STANDARDS (Matthew 7:1-5). If you dare condemn another, then remember that three of your own fingers are pointing right back at you.
May we all love our enemies and trust the Lord to deal with them as He has promised (Romans 12:19; 1st Thessalonians 4:6; James 5:9). Joseph Forgiving His Brethren (let the Lord handle the vengeance, by Pastor Jack Hyles).
Deuteronomy 19:15, “One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.” Not even one person has brought forth evidence of wrongdoing by Pastor Hyles. The Bible says you can't even make a case against a person without the presence of two witnesses who have actually witnessed A SIN. Nobody has done so. Most people attacking Pastor Hyles have merely read something on the internet, rehashing old gossiping rumors and spreading garbage about a good man they've never even met. People have a sinful habit of recalculating what they hear (and the liars attacking Pastor Hyles fully know this flaw in human nature). A man is still deemed innocent until proven guilty!
Did you hear that you liars, hypocrites and slanderers? ... A man is still deemed innocent until proven guilty! Dr. Jack Hyles is an innocent man (and that's not just my opinion, that's what all the evidence clearly shows).
Dr. Hyles Lived By Truth And Principles, Not Popularity Or Money
We are at war spiritually and people are more interested in their dinner parties than honoring God's man. I wouldn't take the word of a woman who is not saved, who slanders Dr. Hyles for anything and everything she can think of. Clearly she is upset for personal reasons and is attacking Pastor Hyles for personal hatred and not based upon legitimate claims. The Bible foretold that perilous times would come in 2nd Timothy 3:1-5. And so it is my friends.
You cowardly ministers who criticize Brother Hyles as a cult leader make me sick. I'd mention your pathetic little names except I don't want to make martyrs out of you or give you free publicity. The Lord will deal with you all! I loved Dr. Hyles style, direct and to the point. People knew exactly where Brother Hyles stood, and he made no apologies for his beliefs. Some jealous men hate Dr. Hyles because he stood his ground and didn't hesitate to tell people the truth, even if it offended them.
Dr. Hyles lived by 5 principles that he decided as a young preacher:
I will make my decisions based upon truth and principles, not convenience or expediency
I will be loyal to God's Word and not to institutions or men.
I will be a friend to my friends.
Money will never be an issue.
No one will ever mess with my preaching.
Those are excellent principles for all of us to adopt. Amen!
One of the great things about Dr. Hyles sermons is that he often shared his life through his preaching (and his character shines through). You can tell when a Charismatic preacher (like Benny Hinn) is a phony because he says certain things to get people's money. TBN is a joke! Listen to Dr. Hyles rip, scathe and harelip every dog in the country through his preaching, and then tell me that he's a cult leader! Cult leaders have personal agendas, Dr. Hyles didn't! Brother Hyles' only agenda was to preach the Word of God and keep America free for the next generation. But one preacher can't do it all alone. All the ingrates criticizing Pastor Hyles today are part of the problem. Life will be over before we all know it, and I promise you that Brother Hyles will be happy in eternity (and so will I) and you won't be for hindering the work of God. God is going to reward the laborers (1st Corinthians 3:8), not the destroyers!
Praise God For The Bus Ministry
Do any of the wicked critics of Pastor Hyles ever mention the millions of children and adults who rode the buses from Chicago every Sunday to Hammond, Indiana, to here about Jesus Christ? Pastor Hyles literally pioneered the idea of a Church Bus Ministry across America and the world. Every Sunday hundreds of buses were sent throughout the Calumet City, Chicago and suburbs to witness to millions of people and invite them to church. God used Dr. Hyles to build what became known as, “The World's Largest Sunday School.” No wonder the Devil attacked Pastor Hyles and First Baptist Church.
No money was ever asked from those millions of visitors on the buses. No donations were requested nor accepted. No fees were charged for all the promotions and activities shared on the buses. Do you have any idea how much gas and diesel fuel costs to run hundreds of buses—week-after-week, month-after-month and year-after-year? The church eventually began to rent the buses instead of owning their own fleet. First Baptist Church spent tens-of-millions of dollars over the decades on the Bus Ministry. The critics never tell you that! Money-hungry preachers don't give everything away and run expensive bus ministries.
Dwight Moody is famous for sending horse-draw wagons throughout Chicago to bring thousands of children to church every Sunday to learn about Jesus Christ. That's what Jack Hyles is all about! Dr. Hyles committed his ministry to the Lord on the very streets of Chicago where Moody made history. Dr. Jack Hyles carried on the work, taking the mantle, and well over 150,000 bus trips over 30-years brought tens-of-millions of people from the Chicagoland area to the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana to the glory of God to honor His Son, Jesus Christ. Millions of lives were changed. Tens-of-thousands were saved. Thousands of children grew up to go into part and full-time ministries worldwide.
FBC has their own quality Christian schools and thousands of kids from around the Chicagoland area have graduated from them over the decades. Dr. Hyles pastored the FBC in Hammond from 1959 until his death in 2001. What an awesome track record! When you think about all the headaches, problems, enemies and things that could have gone wrong (and often did), Pastor Jack Hyles shines as a gleaming light and comes forth as a man of genuine Christian character, unfeigned zeal and a passion for the souls of people.
We live in a throw-away generation. If your spouse messes up, society says to divorce them. If your parents are less than perfect, society says turn them into the authorities for being a disciplinarian and then despise them for the rest of your life. If your pastor makes a mistake or shows any sign of being a human being, crucify him. This is heathendom my friend, not Biblical Christianity. We are living in a slanderous, hypocritical, unforgiving, merciless and hateful generation of brats who've never built a chicken-coup, yet they don't hesitate to openly condemn a man who's built a mighty megachurch from a small church. The best allegations that Dr. Hyles' critics can muster-up amount to zilch! They are only digging a pit for themselves for judgment day.
Thank God for the bus ministries all across America, reaching out to families and bringing people to church to learn about Jesus! You don't know what fun is until you've been involved in a bus ministry, singing and praising the Lord, seeing people's lives changed forever for God. If you want to find a good church, then look for an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church with a Bus Ministry!
Pastor Hyles' Was An Honest Man With Financial Integrity
The snotty-nosed bus kids tore the place up! Amen! Some of the teens were rough, coming from the gangland areas of Chicago. They'd cut the pews, wrote on the walls, set fires, ripped-up songbooks, vandalized and stole anything not bolted down. Yet, Brother Hyles loved those unwanted kids and told his church members and board of deacons that he'd leave the day the kids weren't allowed anymore. Greedy people don't do that. You see, Jack Hyles grew up extremely poor during The Great Depression. In his sermon Hasty Fruit (excellent financial advice for young couples), Dr. Hyles talks about his poor childhood and the financial struggles of his early marriage. Brother Hyles and his wife for the first 3-years of their marriage walked everywhere, because they couldn't afford a car. Everyone had wood stoves back then.
Brother Hyles didn't eat a hamburger until the church bought him one at age 15. He didn't eat an egg, use a flushable toilet or have a pair of pants without holes in it until he was 15-years-old. Dr. Hyles knew poverty, who often said his mother used to thank God for the food they didn't even have, and then 30-minutes later there'd be a knock at the door with some food from the church.
In the sermon HASTY FRUIT, Dr. Hyles talks about how he and his wife could have bought something big, but they settled for a $40,000 home. Their first vacation wasn't around the world, it was around the block! They had $66 and went to Hot Springs, Arkansas, because that's all they could afford. Instead of going into debt, they lived within their means. Amen! They chose not to live extravagantly. Mrs. Hyles grew up wearing dresses made of bean sacks sewed together. In sharp contrast, we are all so spoiled in America today. Adults today grew up in a time of plenty, and it has ruined our character as a culture. Most people are total ingrates. Anybody who accuses Pastor Hyles of greed is a liar of liars. Many people are woefully ignorant, sinfully repeating what some other critic said. There's nothing more evil than to ruin someone's good name and reputation.
I was there in Brother Hyles ministry. People are lying when they say that Pastor Hyles was greedy and lived it up. No he didn't! Dr. Hyles often turned down a-la-carte steak dinners, opting for a Quarter Pounder from McDonalds instead. When Brother Hyles was first attacked publicly of financial improprieties, he politely asked all church members to whom he had ever given money to raise their hand. Hundreds of hands went up that Sunday evening! Very few pastors have that kind of Christ-honoring, generous and awesome testimony! Brother Hyles gave away nearly everything he ever owned. I wouldn't want to be in the shoes of the wicked people who bear false witness against Dr. Hyles' financial integrity.
When I attended First Baptist Church for 8-years, Dr. Hyles salary and that of all the church staff were disclosed at the monthly Wednesday night business meeting after church. To the best of my memory, no one made over $30,000 per year. I remember seeing salaries in the $22,000 to $25,000 range. No one lived high-on-the-hog. Granted, Dr. Hyles received many gifts as the church pastor (mostly peanut butter cups, cheese and beef sticks... emmm), but he was known for sharing everything with others (except the peanut butter cups). Brother Hyles gave, and gave and gave!!!
If you'll just listen to Pastor Hyles' sermons and read his books, you'll see that all the allegations against him are bull crap. Here's a brief quote from Dr. Hyles' book, TEACHING ON PREACHING...Compassion in Preaching -by Pastor Jack Hyles
"I can relate to little Johnny. The first toy I ever owned the church gave to me. The first hamburger l ever ate was bought for me by the church. The first balloon I ever blew up I got at church. I know!
I will never forget the day that I walked into the Fernwood Baptist Church as a five-year-old lad. The Beginner Superintendent whose name was Mrs. Bethel, took me to the Beginner Department. She put me on her knee. My little bare feet were obvious. My knees were showing through the holes and through the patches of my pants. I had on a little white T-shirt, and I noticed that all the other little boys and girls had on shoes and the boys had white shirts and ties.
Mrs. Bethel put me on her knee. She said, "Boys and girls, we have a visitor this morning. His name is Jackie-boy Hyles. Aren't we glad to have him?" Nobody said a word. Then Mrs. Bethel looked at me and said, "Jackie-boy, Jesus loves you" I'll never forget how I felt! Mama had told me that, but nobody else had ever told me! I looked up and said the first words that I had said that morning. I asked, "Mrs. Bethel, does Jesus love me as much as He loves the little boys and girls that have on shoes?"
A tear escaped her eye and invaded my brow as she said, "Jackie-boy, He probably loves you more than He loves anybody here this morning." The joy of Heaven flooded my soul as I heard my teacher tell me that Jesus loved me.
There are millions of little Jackie-boys all over America who need to be contacted and brought to church, to sit in a pew and look up and see a man of God walk to the pulpit who has compassion which makes a difference."
Whew! Amen! hallelujah!!! You evil critics who slander Brother Hyles don't know anything about the man you're criticizing. Anybody can say anything about anybody, and sadly the stigma sticks; but the truth is not always what you're hearing. The Bus Ministry is a financial liability for First Baptist Church, costing them far more than it benefits them financially; but that's not why they run buses. They run buses to reach families for Christ...
Compassion in Preaching -by Pastor Jack Hyles
"There are millions of little Jackie-boys all over America who need to be contacted and brought to church, to sit in a pew and look up and see a man of God walk to the pulpit who has compassion which makes a difference."
Look at all the jerks criticizing
Brother Hyles and you'll find that not one of them brags on Dr. Hyles'
genuine love for others. Do you know why? It's because it would silence his
critics immediately!!! I hope and pray that everyone is listening! By hating
Pastor Hyles you're only hurting yourself. Brother Hyles is rejoicing in
Heaven. I'm wallowing in the truths of Brother Hyles' awesome sermons. Man,
I'm having a heyday! There's nothing greater than being on the winning side
and rejoicing in the truth.
The Homosexual Movement Is Behind The “Cult” Attack On Fundamentalists
If you don't like someone, then you just call them a cult. If you've noticed in the newsmedia lately, the key word “hate” is deliberately being used by the wicked to demonize Christians. They're using the word “cult” to demonize fundamentalist Christians, This is all about the homosexual agenda, whom fundamentalist Christians are first and foremost fighting against in our nation. Look at the malicious attack against Dan Cathy of the Chick-Fil-A restaurant chain.
Despite multiple critics of America's greatest preacher, one wayward woman in particular accused Dr. Hyles of building a 50,000 member “cult.” What a joke! I guess I'm part of a cult too then, because I love Brother Hyles like a dad. First Baptist Church has NEVER been a cult. Do you see what the Devil is doing? Homosexuals are labeling Bible-believing Christians (often called fundamentalists) as being a “cult” and full of “hate.” Be aware of those two key words when you listen to the wicked newsmedia and liberals demonize Christians. You'll see that I'm telling the truth.
I won't even mention the sad little woman's name (because I don't want to give her any undeserved publicity), but many of you know who she is, recently smearing Dr. Hyles' as a “cult” leader. Bill and Melinda Gates are behind her exploits. The Gates sponsored the event where she trashed out Pastor Hyles' good name. It is so evil. Did you know that in July of 2007 Bill and Melinda Gates invested $26,000,000 into the company which publishes OUT magazine (an openly homosexual publication)...
Bill Gates Invests 26 Million Dollars In A Homosexual Publishing Company
MORAL DECLINE | October 3, 2008
LifeSiteNews has published a story that reveals that Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates has invested 26 million dollars in a homosexual publishing company.
The $26.2 million investment is in PlanetOut, a publishing company which runs Out magazine as well as the dating website "Gay.com" which is used primarily for sexual "hook ups" and all gay cruises. The material put out by this publishing company includes hard core homosexual pornography.
SOURCE: Bill Gates Invests 26 Million Dollars In A Homosexual Publishing Company
Hard core homosexual pornography! That's what Bill and Melinda Gates are investing in to make profits!!! The Bill and Melina Gates Foundation seem to be investing in everything immoral and unethical these days (abortion, eugenics, homosexuality, entertainment, forced vaccinations, population reduction, GM foods, spying, et cetera. The love of money is the root of all evil (1st Timothy 6:10). I wouldn't trust the word of anyone who stands to gain a lot of money or career advancement by slandering God's man.
Some people become insanely
jealous when one of their peers rise above them in popularity or success.
Dr. Hyles worked his way to the top with the motive of reaching people for
Christ (and he did). Ask yourself, why would so many people vehemently
attack a Pastor whose been in Heaven for 11-years? I believe that the
Homosexual Movement is behind many of the attacks against fundamentalist
Christians, clearly evidenced by the mob newsmedia lynching of Dan Cathy in
recent months of Chick-Fil-A.
Wicked Are An Abomination To The Just & Just An Abomination To The Wicked
Proverbs 29:27, “An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.”
To anyone seeking the truth about Pastor Hyles, listen to his preaching and you'll see that his critics are liars. In this preaching clip from Dr. Hyles' sermon HEARTS OF STONE, Brother Hyles addresses a man who accuses him of thinking he's God. Brother Hyles said the man was upset that people bow all around the pulpit on the alter, as if Dr. Hyles was God or something. Dr. Hyles expresses his views on the matter, the truth, showing that he desires a soft heart to help others in the Lord. Clearly, Pastor Hyles doesn't think he's God.
Some people mistake Dr. Hyles authoritative preaching for arrogance, but it's not. Have you ever heard Billy Sunday preach? Whew! Talk about hot preaching! This weak-kneed generation today of milquetoast ministers who can't preach their way out of a paper bag make God sick! Brother Hyles was a man's man, which sissy preachers couldn't relate to, so they hated him instead.
There's one man who hates Dr. Hyles guts because decades ago Brother Hyles recommended someone else on a ministry board of directors instead of him. Dr. Hyles made the right choice in my humble opinion. There's numerous families who hate Dr. Hyles because one of their loved ones got saved and went against decades of family Catholicism or other tradition. Jesus said He came to divide families over truth (Matthew 10:35). I won a Mexican man to the Lord and his Catholic mother continually berated and degraded him for it.
Pastor Hyles didn't preach sermonettes, he preached the Word of God, and a lot of people hated him for it. Most people loved him, but a large number of people also hate him until this very day. If they could dig him up just to kill him, they would. And by the way, when you criticize a man, you might as well put a gun to his head and murder him. My website makes a lot of people angry, because they disagree with the truth. I am loved by many, and I know who some of you are; but I am hated by others, and I love you all and pray for you. I pray for ALL of my web visitors, for God to work in your heart.
In this MP3 sermon clip, Brother Hyles tells the story of when his secretary wouldn't put a phone call through from the Mayor of Hammond, because he asked for “Jack.” She replied, “We have a Pastor Hyles, a Brother Hyles, but no Jack.” Dr. Hyles Biblically explains the highest office known to mankind, which is a preacher. Here's the entire MP3 sermon titled, WALK WORTHY OF THE VOCATION WHEREWITH YE ARE CALLED.
To become President of the U.S. would be a step down from the office as being a pastor. This wicked generation despises pastors and preachers. Why don't you despise the Late Night Shows? Why don't you despise the selfish Hollywood actors and greedy music singers who exploit you for money? Do you really think Katy Perry is your friend? Do you really think Eminem cares about you? Dr. Hyles gave his life to serve God and help OTHERS. Yet people bite the hand that feeds them! I completely understand Isaiah 5:14,“ Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.” This preacher-hating, truth-rejecting, Godless, generation is all going straight to Hell!!! Stick out your chest if you have one you wimpy preachers! Where are the men of God? Stand for God!!!
Feminists and rebels don't want an AUTHORITATIVE pastor. Hussies don't want an AUTHORITATIVE husband! This wicked generation hates the King James Bible because it is the ONLY Bible that is AUTHORITATIVE!!! God is an AUTHORITATIVE God!!! Dr. Jack Hyles was an AUTHORITATIVE man, preacher and pastor (and that's the way God wants it). Preachers stopped standing at some point in America, and now we're paying the consequences. Husbands today are being crucified today by wicked, feminist-biased, courts. They are prosecuting AUTHORITATIVE men. Sound Biblical doctrine is AUTHORITATIVE!!! God speaks with AUTHORITY, and God's man preaches with AUTHORITY, from an AUTHORITATIVE Bible!!! If you don't like that you rebels, then you'll be sorry in eternity when God judges you (Ecclesiastes 12:14).
For every backslidden Christian who criticizes Pastor Hyles publickly, ten unsaved people jump on the bandwagon and slander Dr. Hyles without a clue concerning who Brother Hyles was. Believers who criticize Brother Hyles will face the terror of the Lord and receive no rewards from God for destroying God's work. I am convinced of that.
The Brother Hyles You Should All Know
I hear a bunch of people slandering Pastor Hyles, but I don't hear anybody talking about all the tens-of-thousands of poor kids being reached through First Baptist Church. Nobody talks about all the thousands of souls saved, the thousands of baptisms and tens-of-thousands of lives changed each year. There's a lot of things people don't know about Pastor Hyles, and all they're hearing is the garbage that's not even true. People don't see Pastor Jack Hyles' tears, Sunday after Sunday. You can hear Brother Hyles crying in many of his sermons. Just seeing the faces of broken hearts and suffering families in the auditorium often brought tears to Brother Hyles eyes. A preacher knows the burdens of his people in the church more than anyone else does.
Brother Hyles was a servant to everyone in his ministry. Matthew 23:11, “But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.” Pastor Hyles gave of himself, and gave and gave, until he finally died of a tired heart. Mrs. Hyles said at the funeral of her husband that Brother Hyles' biggest burden during his last years was that he couldn't help people as much as he wanted, because there just wasn't enough of him to go around.
Most people will never know the Brother Hyles who put his head down on his desk and wept after counseling a young girl who sleeps with a butcher knife for fear of being raped. A godly pastor carries the burdens of his church members. Pastor Hyles counseled hundreds of people each month, and he encouraged church members to come to him for counseling about anything. Brother Hyles made me feel like I was a person and cared when I talked with him. He was a great guy and a friend to his church members. Dr. Hyles always nodded as he walked by with a group of men, never caught up so much into business that he didn't pay attention to the people around him.
One day years ago Pastor Hyles was in a local store in Hammond with a guest preacher and a woman wearing pants walked in. It was one of Dr. Hyles' regular church members (Everyone knows that Jack Hyles preaches strictly against women wearing pants). She was embarrassed at first, not knowing what Pastor Hyles would say. Dr. Hyles' kindly said, “Brother so-and-so, this is Mrs. so-and-so. She's one of our finest church members and I'm proud to be her pastor.” Isn't that beautiful? She thought her preacher was going to scold her, but instead he lovingly bragged on her. There's a saying that I learned many years ago... “Five minutes of praise will do more for a person than a lifetime of criticism.”
Jack Hyles was meek and humble, but some people mistook his confidence for arrogance. A man of God preaches with authority, from an authoritative Book, authored by an authoritative God! THUS SAITH THE LORD! Yet Brother Hyles has the most wonderful sense of humor. In nearly every sermon, he knew just when to break the tension. Brother Hyles had a wonderful personality and you knew as he preached that he cared about you—not only because he was willing to tell you the truth at risk of offending you—but also because he would use humor to let you know that he wasn't mad at you personally. It's easy for guests to think a preacher is mad at them when he's really mad at sin, but humor makes the big difference. Brother Hyles was awesome!
Modern corrupted Bibles have lost their authoritativeness (which was exactly what Satan wanted). I've NEVER heard even one preacher cry aloud and let-err-rip, who preached from a modern perversion of the Scriptures. Show me the door-to--door soul-winning churches who DON'T use the King James Bible. You can't! There's just something about that King James Bible, and that something is the integrity of the Words which God inspired and preserved in the King James Bible. If you want a sissy-britches minister, then go find a wimp who preaches sermonettes from a sissy-britches version of the Bible. Real men can handle the truth and want the brutally honest King James Bible; and they want a man's man like Dr. Jack Hyles who tells it like it is!!!
Do you know why 95% of all churches today are half-empty, and those present all have bald heads and grey hair? It's because young people don't want to be a part of something that's dying! Dr. Hyles church had over 100 MINISTRIES and was always growing, expanding and moving forward aggressively to get folks saved. Most of Pastor Hyles critics are green with envy and jealousy, eaten up everytime they hear about 10,000 people being saved and baptized in one year! Hateful critics sarcastically ask, “Do you really believe all those 10,000 people were sincere?” No, but do you think you're 2 converts were sincere? So only 9,900 were sincere, are you going to stop trying to get as many people saved as possible because a few may be insincere? Contrary to the ball-and-chain religious methods of David Cloud and those like him, the Bible says that salvation is simple (2nd Corinthians 11:3, “the simplicity that is in Christ”).
Brother Hyles had a philosophy that the federal government wasn't going to treat their employees better than he did his own employees. So he was good to his staff, giving them sick days and not breathing down the necks of the men who worked for him. He shared with them, nothing extravagant, just generous (like any good boss would do). Rotten jerks even criticize Brother Hyles for being good to his staff. Something must be going on, right?
When given gift offerings at speaking engagements nationwide, Dr. Hyles almost always gave the money to the other guest speaker. Only God and the angels in Heaven know how generous preacher was. When Brother Hyles heard that someone was sick, he would often send them a gift. Often, upon learning about an enemy, Dr. Hyles would send a Bible and a humble letter to try to reconcile with that person.
Dr. Hyles tells the time when a 20-year-old young man came to him for counseling. The young man said he was stuck in his life and couldn't make a decision what to do next. The young man wept because he didn't have a dad to seek advice from. Pastor Hyles became a father to him, to guide and help him. Nobody talks about such wonderful truths. Instead people believe the fictitious garbage without verifying it (and they can't verify it, because it's not true). So they believe it anyway just because they hate all preachers who take a stand against sin. I have been told repeatedly that I'm one of the most hated preachers on the internet because of my stand against sin. My reward is in Heaven!
When I visit a church, I feel like shouting out... Where's the beef? That was one of Brother Hyles' favorite commercials from Wendy's... Where's the beef? Preacher had such an awesome sense of humor. Most churches today are dead. Where's the beef? Where's the truth? Where's the Lord Jesus? Where's the King James Bible?
Pastor Hyles had numerous death threats on his life. A guard was parked in front of Pastor Hyles home continually. Can you imagine having to live under continual police protection because of your preaching on the Word of God? This is how evil this American culture has become. If the Lord tarries, preachers and Bible-believing Christians will be horribly attacked, raped and killed right here in the United States (like is happening in India, Mexico and Iran today). Listen to the clip again of pastor Hyles and you'll hear him say that, if the next 25 years are as bad as the last 25 years you'll have to drive 1,000 miles to find a preacher who will preach against sin.
Another woman came to counsel with
Brother Hyles, but turned out to be a man (a transvestite). Can you imagine?
Yet Dr. Hyles helps everyone, no matter who they are or how far Satan has
taken control of their life. You never hear about Dr. Hyles paying for a
pastor's wife to have several hundred dollars of work done on her teeth, nor
the widow's rent payments that Dr. Hyles took care of month-after-month, nor
the $3,000 van that he gave to a preacher out West who needed a van for his
ministry. I'm not making these up. You'll never hear about the sacrifices
Pastor Hyles made, because the people slandering Brother Hyles weren't even
there in most cases. Shame on anybody who tears down this dear man of God.
This Wicked Generation Has A Serious Problem With AUTHORITY
“...for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth...”
Many preachers are envious of Pastor Hyles, attacking him even a decade later after he's gone onto Heaven. What a bunch of cowards! They've never built anything for God, so all they can do is criticize and degrade a man who's gone and can't even defend himself. Pastor Hyles is God's faithful man. A lot of preachers insist that other ministers all be 50/50, share alike, and no one dares to lead the way (or else they attack that man of God as being arrogant and cocky). A man is not bragging because he stands head-and-shoulders above the rest.
Well, Brother Hyles stood head-and-shoulders above the preachers of his generation and he knew it (and many hate him for it). Dr. Hyles knew he could preach, and he was humble about it, as admitted in some of the sermon clips on this webpage. Jealousy is commonplace with success.
The wicked are attempting to discredit Dr. Hyles entire ministry and all his thousands of sermons on the basis of gossip, baseless allegations and hearsay. Why do you think that is? Why is Satan trying so hard to destroy preaching preachers today? It's because the Devil wants people to view all preachers as soft, milquetoast and worthless. Unlike most preachers, Dr. Hyles preaches with AUTHORITY because the Bible is an AUTHORITATIVE Book, and God is an AUTHORITATIVE God. And amen for that! God will have the final say. I am so glad that I'm on the winning side in Christ Jesus (and so was Pastor Jack Hyles). It's the losers who are criticizing him. If you're against Dr. Hyles, then you're a fool, because Dr. Hyles helped millions of people find the Lord and grow in grace.
Some people falsely accuse Brother Hyles of teaching a “bastardized gospel.” Please, get a life! Call is easy-believism if you want, but the Gospel is simple according to 2nd Corinthians 11:4. If you acknowledge your guilt of sin before God and believe that Christ died, was buried and resurrected for YOUR SINS, and you accept that as payment for your sins, then you are saved. Mark 1:15, “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.”
Dr. Hyles often said that there were three types of people who came to hear him preach:
Brother Hyles fed his church congregation very well. Wednesday night Bible studies were awesome. America owes a debt of gratitude to this dear saint of God.
I learned so much about the Bible from listening to Dr. Hyles' sermons. I get mad when I hear ungodly men accusing First Baptist Church of being a cult. You can slap that label on a bunch of different groups that you don't like. Most people have different ideas of what a cult is. First Baptist Church was NOT a cult I assure you. Only a complete idiot would say something like that. To most people, any man who has influence over a group of people is a cult leader. You know, when a pastor marries your kids and buries your dead, you grow to love him over the years. He becomes a part of your family. Most people these days don't understand that. Most people are quick to quit and move on, just like they do in their multiple failed marriages. God's man is not the problem, YOU ARE!
When you criticize Brother Hyles, you are fighting against the cause of Christ and the work of the Lord. Dr. Hyles' enemies ought to be ashamed of themselves and beg God to forgive them. They have no evidence of wrong doing, only criticism from people who obviously have personal ill feelings against Brother Hyles. There's a big difference between personal ill-feelings verses the hateful, lying, slander against a man. Anybody, especially spurned relatives, can say anything they want, but that doesn't make it true.
My advice to anyone who is concerned about Brother Hyles' faults is two-fold:
Listen to Pastor Hyles' preaching
(1,503 MP3 sermons) and you'll find that he is not the Antichrist that
some people are trying to turn him into. You likely watch Hollywood
movies staring adulterers, homosexuals and blasphemers all the time. I
hope you're not dumb enough to reject Dr. Hyles' preaching based on
Consider the FRUIT of Pastor Jack Hyles' 55 years of ministry! Look at all the thousands of good things Dr. Hyles has done for people and the Lord. Dr. Jack Hyles spent 55-years of ministry building lives, starting the Bus Ministry and changing the world for God. Listen to his preaching. Do you know anyone who preaches with such fervor, boldness and concern for others? Look at the fruit of Dr. Hyles' ministry, not the criticisms.
Wicked people boldly express their evil opinions all the time, but no one attacks them. You won't find one negative word about David Lee Roth of the Rock band Van Halen, or Gene Simmons of Kiss (both admitted sexual adulterers and perverts). But they attack Dr. Hyles as being some kind of cult leader. A cult? You've got to be kidding. Look how Hollywood influences people for Satan; yet no one calls them a cult. Television is a cult. The newsmedia is a cult! No one is more brainwashed than the fools who sit glued to their televisions every day.
People don't like Brother Hyles because he preached with AUTHORITY from the Bible. People have a real problem with AUTHORITY these days. Women won't tolerate a preacher who teaches that women ought to OBEY their husbands. There is much criticism on the internet against Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches these days, as being AUTHORITARIAN (men are in charge). My friend, you will not like God then, because He is an authoritative God!!!
We are living in a sissy-britches
generation where pantywaist ministers can't deal with being rebuked. That's
a sign that someone is right with God, that is, when they realize their own
wickedness and don't go around condemning others for their sins. I expose
public wickedness, but I don't condemn people for their sins. There's a big
difference. The wicked gnash upon the righteous with their teeth. You all
can hate preachers, but I'm going to uphold holy hands. Look at the people
criticizing Pastor Hyles and see what preachers they support... deadbeats,
passive milquetoast expositors from the pulpit, critics who've never build a
The Critics Don't Mention Pastor Hyles' 32,000 Sermons, Or Lives Changed
Only Heaven knows all the millions of lives saved by God and changed for Heaven through Dr. Hyle's labors in the Lord. There has been much unjust criticism against Dr. Hyles lately, more so than usual, as if Satan who knows he has but a short time must totally turn people against every remaining bastion of righteousness, goodness and integrity. That's exactly what is happening! America is under siege by Satan, who's attempting to discredit every source of Biblically sound doctrine and life-changing preaching!!! Don't be a fool, I plead with you, listen to Pastor Hyle's preaching and you'll know quickly why Brother Hyles is so hated by the wicked. Men who've never built a chicken-coup have taken liberty to slander a preacher and man of God they're never even met. Dr. Hyle's preached over 32,000 sermons in his lifetime and changed a nation!!! Preaching is the only hope this nation has!
I wish I still had a copy of A
CHURCH WITH A HEART VIDEO that the First Baptist Church Of Hammond
distributed one year at Pastor's School. I cried through then presentation.
All these rotten critics trying to tear down Brother Hyles won't tell you
about the Great Lakes Sailor Ministry in Chicago. Hundreds of men from the
Navy were freely bused from the Great Lakes Naval base to hear Brother Hyles
preach in Hammond, Indiana. They'd spend the afternoon at a barbeque cookout
and play football between church services, then they were transported back
to the military base. The military received First Baptist Church with open
arms. Would the military welcome a religious cult? Many service men answered
the call of God after getting saved and are still pastoring and serving God
as missionaries around the world today. The Air Force presented Brother
Hyles a flag at Pastor's School. I was there. Preacher draped the flag over
the pulpit and many men surrendered to serve God that night.
David Cloud's Sad Little World
I admire David Cloud as a fighter! God knows my heart. I used to promote Brother Cloud's writings, even when I knew he differed in opinion from fundamentalists within my own camp. I respect the right of others to disagree with me. That's what makes America great. It's ok to agree to disagree. We've got to give our brethren room to swim and not bite and devour one another. Galatians 5:15, “But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.”
However, David Cloud has gone too far lately, way too far, even telling bold faced lies about Jack Hyles and his faithful 55-year long ministry. I stopped promoting David Cloud years ago when I found out that he called Dr. Hyles, “The King Of Shallow Soul Winning!” My friend, there was nothing shallow about Pastor Hyles, and only a foolish person would call him something like that. Dr. Hyles was winning souls to Christ while David Cloud was in diapers!
Through God's power, Pastor Jack Hyles built “The World's Largest Sunday School” (which was in the Guinness world book of records), with over 25,000 in attendance weekly every Sunday. Yet David Cloud has never built a hotdog stand. Brother Hyles not only did the impossible when everyone was saying it couldn't be done, but bless his heart, he has written dozens of “How To” books telling us exactly how he did it. David Cloud couldn't write a book on how to build a chicken-coup, because he's never built anything. All he does is tear down and criticize the guy making it happen!!!
The word “fundamentalist” refers to Christians who ascribe to the fundamental doctrines of the Word of God, that is, the Bible. Since Satan is the God of this world, it is not surprising that he is continually seeking for ways to creep into the New Testament Church. Satan owns the nightclubs and taverns, so he's not there. The Devil's primary target is places like the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana (a bastion of truth in these Last Days). Successful people have always been hated. This is sinful human nature! Proverbs 14:30, “A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.”
God will deal with David Cloud at The Judgment Seat Of Christ (James 5:9) and I'm not retaliating against him. I don't hate David Cloud. I am saddened that he takes it upon himself to be judge, jury and executioner of a godly man, against whom NO ONE has brought forth any proof of wrong doing (only ridiculous hype). The very act of trying to establish a person's guilt by comparing them with another person is as evil as can be. I suppose Jesus was a traitor, thief and had a devil because Judas did, right? I mean, they were part of the same group. Someone could put David Cloud's face next to David Koresh and then write a malicious book titled, The Two David's, claiming that Cloud and Koresh are cult leaders. You know, many people would believe it.
I'm mentioning his ministry in this article because David Cloud has written numerous malicious articles that falsely accuse Pastor Hyles and The First Baptist Church Of Hammond, Indiana and Hyles-Anderson College in Crownpoint, Indiana. God bless these dear saints of God for all they have done in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I know that David Cloud is propagating false information, so it wouldn't be right if I didn't speak up.
David Cloud and David Waite have led an evil witch-hunt against the good name of Gail Riplinger, sinfully condemning her. They seem to enjoy destroying the good names of good people who are truly serving the Lord Jesus Christ. I am a fan of Mrs. Riplinger's excellent books in defense of our beloved King James Bible, and these men trying to destroy her testimony and ministry are evil and malicious, wasting the church of God.
The Bible says that a man shall be known by his fruits. Matthew 12:33, “Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.” All of the THOUSANDS of faithful missionaries, Christian teachers, musicians, pastors, evangelists and assistant pastors who are graduates of Hyles-Anderson College during the 29-years that Pastor Jack Hyles oversaw the ministry is solid evidence that Dr. Hyles is NOT a cult leader. Shame on David Cloud for agreeing with the homosexuals. They're calling Chick-Fil-A hateful “cult” for Dan Cathy's Biblical stand against homosexuality. Anyone who takes a Biblical stand for God nowadays is considered a CULT.
Listen to Dr. Hyles again (or refresh this webpage) if you haven't noticed yet in the background clip (The Young People Shouted, While The Old People Wept), where Brother Hyles says Evangelist Joe Boyd told Pastor Hyles of the massive influence of FBC around the country. This is why Dr. Hyles is so hated, that is, he influenced a nation for God. People absolutely can't stand it that someone today would still call Dr. Hyles a “hero!” He was a hero (and will always be a hero in the eyes of Heaven). No church in America has had as much of a profound influence upon the world as the blessed First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana. If my website ministry has blessed you, you have Pastor Jack Hyles mostly to thank for it. Amen!
The preceding clip is back when Brother Hyles had a health problem with his throat. Listen and you can hear him coughing repeatedly. Day-after-day, week-after-week, month-after-month, year-after-year, decade-after-decade, Jack Hyles suffered from a ongoing health problem with his throat. And yet he preached his heart out for God to help others. His throat eventually cleared of the problem as he grew older. I believe God took it away. Can you listen to the clip (The Young People Shouted, While The Old People Wept) and honestly say that Brother Hyles was only there to exploit people for their money? You can tell when a man is pulling the wool over your eyes. I never, not once, doubted Brother Hyles sincerity. Dr. Hyles didn't resort to shady methods of beating money out of his congregation. Everything was honest and up front.
I wish you could have been there. BUT I WAS, and I'm telling you all these allegations are bull crap. If a person will lie about Dr. Hyles' financial integrity, then it discredits everything they say. When people call Brother Hyles a cult leader, it tells me immediately that they don't recognize Hell, fire and damnation preaching from the Bible as being of God. 2nd Timothy “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.” The people who alleged that Pastor Hyles preached heresy don't know what they're talking about. Jesus said SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES (and Jack Hyles did)!!!
Now I don't agree with everything Dr. Hyles says. When Brother Hyles praised Colonel Oliver North during the Reagan/Bush Presidency, I didn't think nothing about it at the time. Now that the truth has come out about Mena, Arkansas airport and the illegal drug dealing under Bill Clinton (then Arkansas governor), I want to vomit. Oliver North is a drug-trafficking hero! So I don't agree with everything Pastor Hyles said (or any other pastor for that matter). But doctrinally I agree with 98% of everything Dr. Hyles teaches. Brother Hyles once said that he thought Noah's son Ham may have commit an act of homosexuality with her drunken father. I firmly don't believe that. I think Ham's sin was CONDEMNING HIS FATHER!
You wicked sardine-can ministers who've never build a hotdog stand for God ought to be ashamed of yourselves! I'm going to mention David Cloud at Way Of Life Literature, because he's a sad little man for continually berating and degrading Pastor Hyles. BEWARE of Way Of Life literature and David W. Cloud.
David Cloud obsessively continues to attack the First Baptist Church of Hammond Indiana. I didn't want to mention his name, but David Cloud is all over the internet, in the search engines, attacking Pastor Hyles and all the tremendous work he did for the Lord. The Bible says a righteous person FALLETH SEVEN TIMES, YET RISETH AGAIN (Proverbs 24:16). Put your daggers and weapons away. Dr. Hyles is right, the Christian army is the only army in the world that slays its wounded. They don't even have proof against Dr. Hyles, but this wicked generation doesn't care about justice. People are used to believing every bit of gossip and hateful slander they here. Go soul-winning and do something constructive. Stop destroying the good name of Pastor Hyles.
David Cloud says the purpose of his Way Of Life ministry is, “TO PROVIDE INFORMATION TO ASSIST PREACHERS IN THE PROTECTION OF THE CHURCHES IN THIS APOSTATE HOUR.” What a sad joke! He's the one who is apostate! Dr. Jack Hyles was the greatest preacher of the 20th century and taught more people to go soul-winning than anyone else. Dr. Jack Hyles has led more sinners to the Lord in bathrooms across America, than David Cloud has ever won his entire life anywhere!!! David Cloud continues to condemn Pastor Hyles for allegedly preaching a false Gospel. May I say, Dr. Hyles is 100% doctrinally sound. Read Pastor Hyles writing for yourself, THE SIMPLICITY OF SALVATION. You'll be the loser, I promise you, if you block Brother Hyles out of your life.
You know, Pastor Hyles gave away all the hundreds of books that he has written. David Cloud sells his works and has notices about not using his materials without permission. Dr. Hyles never horded anything. Cloud has no room to condemn Pastor Hyles (James 4:12). Pastor Hyles gave away nearly everything that came into his hands.
Nobody ever talks about the Mercedes Benz car that Dr. Hyles turned down from a doctor in his church. Pastor Hyles thanked the man but said he didn't want to drive a car that the average man in his church couldn't wear. Dr. Hyles chose to wear suits that any man could go buy at a thrift store for a few dollars, instead of wearing robes. Dr. Hyles critics don't criticize the dead churches, they go after the most awesomest preacher in American history. Why don't they go after the Charismatic preacher Creflo Dollar who lives in a $5,000,000 mansion in Georgia? Dr. Hyles lived in a normal home.
Dr. Hyles NEVER warned anybody that they had better not copy and use his work without paying for it. David Cloud is not worthy to tie Jack Hyles' shoe laces!!! David Cloud seems to be highly envious of Dr. Curtis Hutson of the Sword Of The Lord and Dr. Jack Hyles, bashing them continually. Lay off it man, why do you hate these men so much?
There are wolves in our fundamentalist camps these days, but Dr. Hyles is NOT one of them. Pastor Hyles wasn't perfect, and he often admitted that, but Jack Hyles vehemently denied all allegations of adultery. Unless you have proof to support your allegations, shut your mouth! A dead man cannot defend himself. To make allegations against a dead man is one of the worst evils imaginable if you have no concrete evidence against him. By the way, Brother Hyles is alive in Heaven with Jesus (2nd Corinthians 5:8).
David Cloud is wrong, wrong, wrong! David Cloud was never a participant of the ministry of Dr. Hyles, so he doesn't know. I was there, so I DO know! I don't worship a man, I admire and love my preacher. Listen to what the Apostle Paul said in 1st Corinthians 11:1, “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” Paul said to follow him, because he was following THE LORD. I followed Dr. Hyles in his ministry, because he followed THE LORD. It's Biblical to follow anyone who is serving Jesus and following the Word of God. That's what a Christian leader is!!! I mean, why even have Christian leaders if we're supposed to live in paranoia and question everything like David Cloud teaches...
"In September 1999 I published an article entitled “Unquestioning Loyalty to Pastoral Leadership Is the Mark of a Cult.” Since then I have seen many other examples of this unscriptural attitude that has affected many independent Baptist churches."
SOURCE: Another Warning About Unquestioning Loyalty to Church Leaders
What questions should I have asked Dr. Hyles while in Bible college? Should I have asked him where he was Friday night? Nope, that's not it. How about if I had asked him if he ever committed adultery? Is that what David Cloud means? What is David Cloud talking about? Look at What Cloud says. It's so obvious that he as green with envy that Brother Hyles was surrounded by hundreds of people who were willing to give their lives for him in devotion. That's what happens when a man loves you, teaches you the Bible, prays for you daily, marries your loved ones, buries your loved ones, visits you in the hospital when you're sick, counsels you when you need help, is there for you as a friend, and in many cases personally led you to the new birth in Christ Jesus.
Add to that watching the buses roll in each Sunday and seeing all the little boys and girls coming to learn about Jesus Christ. Add to that seeing the mission men, and the tuck stop ministry, and the several dozen other ministries. I'd certainly lay down my life for such a godly man. And so would you unless you're a filthy ingrate like the nine lepers who didn't bother to thank Jesus for healing them of leprosy (Luke 17:17).
I heard one ungrateful, bitter, woman say about Dr. Hyles that he “took a wonderful church and turned it into a 50,000 member cult.” You sorry little brat! You Jezebel. That women needs to find God. It's so obvious that she's bitter and just spewing hatred against Brother Hyles. If you are a truth-seeker and have an honest heart, please read this and you'll see exactly why Satan hates Preacher Hyles so much...
Pastor Jack Hyles' Favorite Soul Winning Experiences
Ask David Cloud for his favorite soulwinning experiences!!! I love Brother Hyles for a reason, and you would have loved him too. Don't believe the lying bull. Listen to Dr. Hyles' sermons, read his books and get to know the man. You can't listen to over 1,500 sermons and not get an idea of who a man is. If Dr. Hyles was a cult leader count me in Brother! I want a front seat!
Why don't Dr. Hyles' critics mention the truck-stock ministry. Literally, the church had a ministry at a local interstate truck stop. They'd invite the truckers on weekends to come to the church for a home-cooked chili dinner and hear the preaching, then they'd shuttle them back to the truck stop.
Or how about the precious deaf ministry and the hundreds of deaf people who sat to Pastor Hyles left in every service. The leftmost pews in the auditorium were reserved for the deaf, and they had a translator who translated the sermon in sign-language throughout the service. How about the ministry to the blind, the lame, the mentally-challenged. Whew! Glory to God I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it! And the work continues! Cult? Your crazy if you believe that garbage! The local New Testament Church is NOT a cult.
David Cloud errantly defines a cult as having unquestioning loyalty to church leadership. Here's Cloud's statement again...
"In September 1999 I published an article entitled “Unquestioning Loyalty to Pastoral Leadership Is the Mark of a Cult.” Since then I have seen many other examples of this unscriptural attitude that has affected many independent Baptist churches."
SOURCE: Another Warning About Unquestioning Loyalty to Church Leaders
That's simply not true. Jack Hyles EARNED the unquestioning loyalty of those people over decades!!! Trust is something that takes years to earn, and 5 seconds to lose!!! Brother Hyles pastored the First Baptist Church of Hammond for over 42-years. That's quite an accomplishment. The average pastor lasts 5-years. Do you really think over 100,000 people (the correct membership) would have given their unquestioningly loyalty to a cult leader? No way! First, not everyone had unquestioning loyalty. Pastor Hyles has enemies within the church as well as without. That's just people problems no matter where you go.
One lawyer who had been a church member became a bitter enemy against Brother Hyles (I really don't like lawyers). Ladies and gentleman, men have EGOS. You either loved Brother Hyles or you hated him. That was true of the Lord Jesus, the Apostle Paul and other strong leaders. People don't like an opinionated person who is aggressive in their faith and doesn't bite their lip. A man once said to me, “You don't bite your lip do you?” No, not if I have something meaningful or important to say.” If it needs to be said, I'm going to say it by God's grace. I guess I'd have to bite my fingers since I'm typing...lol. Mrs. Hyles said in one of her books that men are 1% muscle, 1% chivalry, 1% intellect and 97% ego! So true!
When women get bored they go shopping. When
men get bored they start wars! How do you ladies put up with us men? Well, I
can tell you that trashing out your pastor and trying to destroy his life's
work is not the right thing to do. We're supposed to honor the Lord in all
that we say and do. Ecclesiastes 9:18, “Wisdom is better than weapons of
war: but one sinner destroyeth much good.”
Satan Is Attacking Those Who Have Exalted The Inspired King James Bible
Have you noticed that the Devil is using a handful of evil men and woman to attack the Christians fighting the most diligently to defend and uphold the inspiration of the King James Bible? This issue on a spiritual plane is all about the inspiration of our beloved English King James Bible.
Perhaps you are asking why is the King James the only reliable Bible? My friend, there were at least two known homosexuals on the translating committee of the New International Version ([NIV] published in 1984). They completely removed the word sodomites from the Bible and changed it to temple prostitute. How much more evidence of foul play do you need? According to the Christian Business Association the NIV is the most popular Bible in America's churches today. The new NIV 2011 is even worst, feminizing the Scriptures to cater to lesbians and homosexuals, while still upholding all the homosexual changes. Should it be surprising that in April of 2012 President Barack Obama was the first U.S. President to ever publicly endorse the sin of homosexuality (and no one cared)! The public was quite. What do you expect when most churches are using a Bible given to them by homosexuals.
In a further attempt to discredit our beloved King James Bible, liars have tried to turn King James into a homosexual (just like their trying to turn Dr. Hyles into an adulterer), but neither have been found to be true. Prove your allegations! But you say, “Things like that are difficult to prove.” Then shut up because you have nothing to support your allegations! If it were YOU being accused... IF IT WERE YOU... then you would demand proof; so be forewarned that the Lord will judge you on the same basis (Matthew 7:1). God will show no mercy on those who show no mercy and sow discord amongst brethren.
In fact, all modern Bibles are patterned after the same corrupt Greek. That's what most people don't understand. If you think trying to find the correct English Bible is hard, now consider that you have to first find the correct Greek. What a big mess, just the way Satan wanted it. 1st Corinthians 14:22 says that God is NOT the Author of confusion. Satan is behind the Bible-corrupting confusion.
On my website ministry I don't
condemn nor expose people for their personal sins, nor alleged personal
sins. I expose public heresies, false religions, the homosexual and feminist
AGENDAS. I think people need to shut-up about the alleged sins of others!
David Cloud is a wicked sinner, and so is David Waite, and so am I, and so
are you. James 2:10 says one sin makes us guilty of all in God's eyes. No
one is a shining example of what a Christian should be. The Bible tells us
to be conformed to the image of Christ Jesus (Romans 8:29). Vengeance
belongs to God alone (Romans 12:19; Romans 14:10-12; 1st Thessalonians 4:6;
James 4:12; 5:9).
America Continues To Defy And Oppose Godly Morality
As America and its leaders increasingly defy God and oppose Godly morality, the country faces dire consequences.
Christian in Name Only?
Good News Editor
Political leaders aren't the only hypocrites when it comes to claiming to be Christian while acting far differently. For years America prided itself on being a Christian nation. And while the nation may still claim this, the lives of its people tell a far different story. Consider a few facts that reveal how far the country has fallen:
- More than 40 percent of all U.S. births are out of wedlock, and among women under 30 it's well over half.
- Excluding miscarriages, 22 percent of all pregnancies in the United States are ended by abortion.
- By age 45, an estimated 30 percent of American women will have had an abortion.
- Almost half of all marriages end in divorce, and divorce rates are almost the same among those who call themselves Christian.
- Marriage and family are the building blocks of society, yet barely half of all adult Americans (51 percent) are married, and an ever-increasing number choose to simply live together outside of marriage.
- Nearly half of all Americans (48.5 percent) live in households receiving some kind of government aid. More than a third live in households receiving food stamps, subsidized housing, welfare or Medicaid.
- Although 85 percent of U.S. households own a Bible—and most have more than one—more than half (54 percent) cannot name its first five books (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy).
- Almost half of Americans (46 percent) say they read the Bible only once or twice a year.
- A majority of Americans (60 percent) can't name the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) and an even greater number (63 percent) can't name more than half of the Ten Commandments.
As Matthew 7:20 tells us, “By their fruits you will know them.”
SOURCE: THE GOOD NEWS magazine, article by Scott Ashley; July-August 2012, page 26.
Isn't that sad? Forty-six percent of Americans said they only read the Bible once or twice a year.
Don't criticize Dr. Hyles, get up and PREACH LIKE HIM!!! Preach against public sin (no unfounded rumors)! Proclaim the truth of God's Word! Preach the Gospel! Uplift the King James Bible! Promote the local New Testament Church. Proclaim the literal, physical, blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ! Proclaims liberty for the captives through the Gospel, and deliverance for the saints through the power of the Holy Spirit! Give the Devil a black eye! Fight against the New World Order! Let's expose the evils of liberalism, neo-evangelicalism, formalism, modernism, ecumenicalism and humanism.
Satan already owns the nightclubs, taverns and liberal churches; but he does not own the fundamentalist Christians in America who are still fighting the good fight of faith. The worst thing that we can do is fight against each other, for a house divided cannot stand. Christians need to fight against neo-evangelicalism (the Max Lucado and Joel Osteen crowd) and the so called new fundamentalism that denies the inspiration of the King James Bible. We need to fight against the Charismatic gang (Pat Robertson and TBN). But we ought to love one another and not attack each other. Sadly, Dr. Hyles worst enemies are so called Christians, who are carnally minded and pulling on the same rope as the Devil.
We are under attack ladies and gentleman, fighting a spiritual battle against the powers of Satan like never before. Satan knows that his time is short. In case you haven't noticed, the entire world is preparing for the coming of the Antichrist. Don't let Satan rob you of the best preaching in the world. There's thousands of DEAD sermons online, but Pastor Jack Hyles stand alone. One man said, “Jack Hyles followers will idolize him no matter what truth comes out.” Likewise, Pastor Hyles' critics will hate and attack him, no matter what truth exists in his defense.
One of the techniques that law enforcements uses is to attempt to catch someone in a lie. If they can catch a suspect or accuser in even one lie, then they can use that inconsistency of character against them in court to discredit everything they have to say. Likewise, look at what Dr. Hyles critics are alleging. They accuse him of financial improprieties, which are easily shown to be false. The Bus Ministry alone cost the church millions of dollars. They don't charge bus riders, there's no profits. I know, I was there. People who accuse Brother Hyles of greed are barking up an empty tree. Dr. Hyles defended his ministry by talking out a full page advertisement in the Chicago Tribune, listening the name of thousands of businesses who supported Pastor Hyles financial integrity and First Baptist Church. Dr. Hyles publickly evidenced that his enemies were liars. The mob of internet critics won't tell you that, because the truth makes fools out of them.
Ephesians 6:13 teaches that our
warfare as Christians is NOT against flesh and blood, but against the
spiritual powers of darkness, against the rulers of the darkness of this
world. Satan is the god of this world's evil system (2nd Corinthians 4:4).
The Devil will do ANYTHING to take you to Hell forever or destroy your walk
with God if you are a Christian. I thank God for all of pastor Hyles'
awesome sermons. The hatemongers who are trying to destroy Brother Hyles are
attacking a man based on the hearsay of envious people, spurned relatives
and unfounded gossip.
Pastor Jack Hyles Earned My Complete Trust And Still Has My Trust
I never saw or heard anything to cause me to think otherwise (and I still haven't). Have you noticed that the critics attacking Pastor Hyles are also bringing up distant associations, trying to establish guilt by association? Talk about ambush journalism and unethical reporting. It's wickedness! Pastor Hyles critics have maliciously combed the nation's news for any sin or crime ever committed by anyone who attended First Baptist Church at any time or ever worked for Dr. Hyles, trying to cast a negative reflection on Jack Hyles' good name. Why don't people apply that kind of scrutiny to their favorite Rock star or Hollywood actor?
Do you think crimes happen at professional sporting events or music concerts? Yes, of course, lots of sins and crimes; but no one cares about that! Wicked people go after preachers!!! A man of God can genuinely love and faithfully lead his people for 30-years and then one day go into sin. People naturally are going to feel betrayed, but that doesn't mean they should stand in line to piss on their pastor's grave.
The evil people criticizing Dr. Hyles usually bring up other people too, trying to magnify a big lie into a bigger lie. By mentioning the sins and crimes of others, they're trying to stain and discredit Pastor Hyles books, sermons and 55-years of ministry. The tragic and sad thing is that the people who will suffer the most from all this slander, are millions of unsaved people who will die in their sins and go to Hell for ever and ever. 2nd Corinthians 4:3, “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost.”
Ladies and Gentleman, you have no idea how hated Pastor Hyles was (and still is) for his strong stand for Biblical truth. In case you haven't noticed, Brother Hyles' fighting spirit is as alive as ever and Satan wants him to go away!!! By the way, the Fighting Fundamentalist Forum ought to be renamed to the Gossiping Fundamentalist Forum. They're having too much FUN and not enough DA MENTAL. I haven't been in there to visit for years, but their site popped up in a search engine the other day. It made me sick.
The Devil will leave you alone if you hide your light under a bushel; but if you preach truth to others, watch out! People absolutely hate when a man stands up and proclaims, “THUS SAITH THE LORD!!!” I personally have received tons of hate mail over the years. I've been called everything you can imagine. I been threatened with lawsuits. I've received threats from lawyers. I just keep praying without ceasing, fighting the good fight of faith, unconditionally loving people, and trusting the Lord with all my heart; and not leaning unto my own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-7).
I could write a book against all the lies of Dr. Hyles' critics (this page is a small book). So much of the critic is exaggerated junk. For example: Some people criticize Pastor Hyles for wanting to keep his life private. Hey, any normal parent teaches their kids not to share the family's dirty laundry with others. Every parent does that. EVERY family has dirty laundry (marital fights, negative opinions, et cetera). Churches have been split because of big mouths!
Some idiot tried to compare Dr. Hyles to Jim Jones, saying that if Brother Hyles told his congregation to drink the Kool-=Aid, they would have. Whoa! Jim Jones poisoned the Kool-Aid of a thousand people, and they died. They DIDN'T know they were being poisoned. To compare a pastor of a New Testament church with Jim Jones is like comparing apples with a Mack truck. David Cloud is wrong about the mark of a cult, because he doesn't explain that it's normal for people to trust a man of God who has legitimately earned their trust over the years.
So what is a cult, Biblically? A cult is any organized religious group that does not follow the teachings of the Word of God. The world's dictionary defines a church as a cult. Literally, they define a cult as a religious group adhering to a system of beliefs. Well, then every church is a cult. Every organized group would then be a cult. The second definition I found says a cult is a group with excessive zeal. Oh buy, we had better not get too excited about Jesus at church! The truth is that this world doesn't know what a cult is because they are walking in spiritual darkness. Most people who label Dr. Hyles and First Baptist Church as a cult are unsaved reprobates on their way to Hell.
The popular opinion of our generation is to be quiet about the beliefs of others. It's ok to believe what you want, but don't force or impose your beliefs on others. The truth is that wicked heathens teach their devilish doctrines in state universities and children's classroom all across the country. In short, the wicked want Christians to shut up, while they continue to push their wicked philosophies and garbage on our youth. Since the wicked don't recognize the Bible as God's inspired Words, they don't understand why Christians are so dogmatic in their beliefs. Christians are labeled as “haters” and “cultists” for believing the Words of God. I am so glad that I'm on the winning side in Christ Jesus!!! Whew! Amen!!!
If you listen to the MP3 clip in the background, you'll hear Pastor Hyles give God all the honor and the glory. This is totally contrary to the bogus claims of his critics that Brother Hyles ran a cult for himself. Dr. Hyles gave away nearly everything he owned; yet wicked critics claim he horded money and was dishonest.
In particular, the wicked have accused Dr. Hyles of being a cult leader. Nothing could be further from the truth. But if Dr. Jack Hyles was a cult leader, I'm 10,000 times over, grateful for being a part of his awesome ministry for 8-years (1985-1993). I was there at First Baptist Church of Hammond and Hyles-Anderson College, so I can speak the truth—unlike hordes of internet critics who were never there, never built a chicken-coup and don't know what they're talking about. My friend, I want to tell you the things that no one is telling you. THE GOOD THINGS! Unlike the bad things that are unfounded and speculative at best, these things can easily be verified.
Jack Hyles began his ministry at
age 19, pastoring for the next 55-years until his graduation to Heaven in
2001. Brother Hyles (as we often called him), grew up in the 1930's in
Texas, during The Great Depression. “Jackie Boy Hyles” as his friends called
him, didn't eat his first hamburger until he was 13-years-old.
First Baptist Church Was Never A Cult, NEVER!
I challenge you whoever you are to listen to several of Brother Hyles' sermons and pay attention to the audience. Here's one of my favorite sermons titled, DON'T RUN! You'll discover quickly that Pastor Hyles had a wonderful sense of humor and always made his congregation laugh and enjoy the sermons. In a cult you don't hear happy people, laughing, shouting in joy, rejoicing and having a great time in the Lord. Brother Hyles made church fun as well as edifying.
Do you even know what a cult is my friend? A cult is when men are in charge instead of the Word of God. Dr. Hyles continually led his church members to obey the Word of God. LISTEN to his sermons and the evidence is 100% plain to hear for yourself. This man led no cult! Read Dr. Hyles books. Did you know that none of Dr. Hyles books are copyrighted? Dr. Hyles wanted everyone to have his books.
My friend, please don't believe the malicious liars who are trying to discredit the mightiest preacher of the 20th century? I know that Jack Hyles was only a man, but he spend 55-years serving God and left us a treasure of books and sermons as awesome as that left to the world by Charles Spurgeon. And as far as I'm concerned far greater. Spurgeon was a one-point Calvinist, but Jack Hyles was 100% Baptist.
A perfect example of a cult is the Roman Catholic religion, who elevate manmade traditions over the Word of God (Mark 7:6-13). Here's a list of their traditions fabricated over the centuries. I've attended Catholic services where I heard the priest for myself tell everyone not to study the Bible on their own. The priest said that you need special seminary training to understand the Bible, and he told everyone to trust the priests instead. I heard him say it myself. And I know that's what Catholicism teaches.
First Baptist Church of Hammond Indiana is a legend in history, a God-send to America and the world. Do you know that there are thousands of missionaries around th world because of Pastor Jack Hyles? By the way, Dr. Jack Hyles shared preaching platforms nationwide with Evangelist John R. Rice (1895-1980) and was good personal friends with Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982). These are all great men of God to whom America owes a debt of gratitude. My friend, you'll never even begin to be right with God as a born-again Christian until you first learn to be thankful for those who have faithfully served God and gone on before, paving the roads for our freedom in America. These are truly th Last Days.

The Two Jacks Or The One Jerk?
David Cloud makes God angry! Proverbs 6:16-16 says that God hates sowing discord amongst brethren. In his pathetic little book, THE TWO JACKS, David Cloud shows what a BIG JERK he is by attacking the last two pastors of First Baptist Church, making them into Antichrists. David Cloud is a dangerous man! I advice people to AVOID David Cloud at all cost, because he'll turn you into a hatemonger. Hate is contagious like a disease and Cloud is infected big time. Since David Cloud is popping up at the top of the search engines, trashing out the greatest preacher of the 20th century (Dr. Hyles), I'm going to warn people. God will take care of David Cloud, but I want everyone to know that this man is a big time LIAR and DECEIVER!!
On page 25 of his disgusting slanderous garbage, Cloud says about Pastor Hyles...
'Jack Hyles’ preaching ministry was incredibly shallow. It was not based solidly on Scripture, and this was a fundamental error. He preached stories and used Scriptures as a pretext and a jumping off point. One could sit under his ministry for years and remain biblically illiterate, which better allowed him to control people’s thinking.
What a fool! I sat under Pastor Hyles preaching and teaching for 8-years and I learned more than I could have ever hoped to. Satan is working in David Cloud. Satan tears people down (Revelation 12:10). David Cloud accuses Dr. Hyles and his ministry day and night on the internet, exactly like Satan does every believer. If ever there was a liar, it's David Cloud. I didn't realize how hateful he was until I found this crap this week. I rarely address the scuttlebutt and trash floating around the internet, but Dr. Hyles is my friend. I loves the Hyles family (all of them). They're just human beings, but self-righteous hypocrites have have attacked them for every cough, every blink, every stumble.
Even worse, his enemies have created a bunch of lies... guilt by association, lying about finances, lying about his preaching, twisting th facts. Do you people who are attacking Brother Hyles realize that judgment day is coming? Your destroying the life's work of a man who has done more to save America than any human being alive? Do any of you critics fear God? (Romans 3:18). I sure do! When you attack a person's name, you might as well blow their brains out with a gun. Dr. Hyles preached an excellent sermon about this, which I hope you'll listen to, titled, Joseph Forgiving His Brethren. When you love your friends, you speak up for them.
I thank God I'm in the business of building and not tearing down. I expose false religions, not my Christian brethren. I'm surprised Cloud doesn't criticize Brother Hyles for the type cologne her wears. What next... he didn't take a bath and smelled? He split his pants once on the platform? He failed to smile once? I didn't write this article for the critics. Some people are in a state of being critical (like Cloud), which is far different from just have a bad day and criticizing someone. Cloud has some deep ill feelings and hatred against the Hyles family, but he doesn't care about all the people who he's hurting by assassinating the good name of a good man. One sinner truly does destroy much good as the Bible says. Dr. Jack Hyles was a modern-day Solomon, which Dr. John R. Rice called him. Ecclesiastes 9:18, “Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good.”
Pastor Lee Roberson (1909-2007) was supportive of Dr. Hyles' ministry 100%. Brother Robertson is responsible for over 500 missionaries going to the mission field. He pastored for over 40-years in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
The only one shallow I see is Mr. Cloud. Galatians 5:12, “I would they were even cut off which trouble you.” David Cloud is teaching doctrines of devils by trashing out a godly church and minister. Whose side is he on anyway? Since Cloud admits he is targeting pastors with this crap, I have to counter it for the sake of America's future. Every pastor in America should be preaching like Brother Hyles. Everyone is trying to destroy Dr. Hyles because of his preaching! The best way to deal with the critics is to preach like Dr. Hyles did, that is, spirit-filled, bold, Biblical, with love and no compromise!!!
"Old-fashioned, Spirit-filled, Christ-honoring, sin-hating, soul-winning, Bible preaching! It is the hope of the church! It is the hope of the nation! It is the hope of the world!" —Pastor Jack Hyles
Thank You Pastor Jack Hyles!
Pastor Hyles admits that he sacrificed precious time that he could have spent with his family, using that time instead to preach around the country, in a Godly attempt to save a nation for Jesus Christ. Thank you preacher!!! I heard Dr. Hyles tell the story of when he turned 40-years old. He was having a conversation with his son, Dave, asking him what he thought about his dad travelling the country to preach. They agreed that dad would try to save the nation. God pity the wicked person who would dare criticize Dr. Hyles for choosing to save a nation instead of attending ball games to watch his son play football. Brother Hyles admits in the clip that he cried because he wanted to be with his family.
Dr. Hyles could have joined the wicked Hollywood crowd instead of trying to save the nation. He could have opened a tavern or opened a bank instead of trying to save our country for God. Yet, making the decision to serve God cost Dr. Hyles dearly, bringing personal afflictions upon him that's worse than death. Oh, how Jack Hyles paid for his decision to give-it-all for the Lord Jesus Christ.
Anybody who knows anything about Pastor Hyles' incredible ministry from the beginning knows that he could have been filthy rich, but he has publicly said he doesn't want that, and he lived up to his claims. Anybody who think Brother Hyles never left them anything is insane... here's 1,503 sermons that he left us all (which I cherish more than all the money in this world!!).
In the clip you just heard, Brother Hyles expresses his grief for missing the tip-off of his son's 64 ball games. Brother Hyles knew what he was sacrificing for the Lord and his nation, and it grieved him. Most preachers would never make such a sacrifice for Christ. Dr. Hyles had to prioritize his time and resources (just like we all do). Staying busy for God is a lot better than being busy for Satan. Most parents don't get to spend quality time with their kids because of work, or working night shift, or having to work two jobs. Many preachers have hypocritically condemned Pastor Hyles, even calling for his resignation when his adult children were less than perfect. I want to say “thank you” to the Hyles family for giving their dad to save the nation. There's no greater way to “Honor thy father and thy mother,” than to support one's parent for sacrificing their time and life for the things of Jesus Christ.
Brother Hyles so often mentioned in his books and preaching about his great love for his own children. Brother Hyles often mentioned his ice cream dates with his daughters. Brother Hyles did spend time with his children, but he couldn't spend as much time as he wanted, especially when they were older and they had a lot of activities going on in church and school. It is easy for people who've never made any sacrifices for God to criticize Pastor Jack Hyles. But we ought to thank him. But do you know, times haven't changed. Jesus healed 10 lepers of the horrible flesh-eating disease of leprosy and only 1 out of 10 men came back to thank Jesus. Jesus asked, where are the 9 others? Likewise, people today criticize things they don't understand, nor do they care to understand, because they're hearts are not right with God. They have hearts of stone, quick to divorce, quick to condemn, quick to hate others.
Thank you Pastor Jack Hyles for
all you've done, sacrificed and given for the Lord Jesus Christ and for us
in His name.
Brethren Pray For Us
Concerning Brother Schaap. I unconditionally love everyone in the Lord (and that includes Dr. Schaap). I am a friend to anyone going through hard times and afflictions. The Lord doesn't see us for what we are, but for what we can be through the Lord Jesus Christ. I stopped promoting him when he turned against the inspiration of the King James Bible. But he's just a sinner like you and me. You hypocrites who say you'd never pray for him are not right with God (or need to get saved as well). The Bible says a just man falleth seven times. That means YOU if you are saved. If it's not you, then you're hellbound in your sins without Christ. The Bible says in 1st John 1:8-10 that if we deny our wickedness it's because we are not saved.
There's only two types of people in this world: 1) Christians who are trying to live right and stumbling continually, and 2) Unsaved people who don't even try to live right. That's it! If you say otherwise, then you are calling God a liar Who said a just man FALLETH SEVEN TIMES, YET RISETH UP AGAIN. Proverbs 24:16, “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.” Wicked people who don't even try to live right attack Christians who drop one sandwich on the floor.
Remember Joseph, who was convicted and sent to prison for at least 12-years for a crime he didn't commit. Everyone thought he was guilty. The circumstances appeared to make Joseph guilty of adultery. It was his accuser's word against his. Dr. Jack Hyles is like Joseph. Just as Joseph couldn't prove his innocence, how can any man prove his innocence? Sadly, the nature of lying is that even if a man's name is cleared, the stigma sticks and his reproach never goes away. Professional liars fully know that, and it's a common practice in society's today. The wicked newsmedia has labeled Congressman Ron Paul as a nut, anti-American, and even a terrorist and threat to our nation. There's not a more honorable man than Dr. Ron Paul.
And let me comfort your hearts, those of you Christians who have fallen. I cried one day when I read Romans 8:34, “Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.” Who is he that condemneth the Bible asks? The answer is NO ONE because Jesus died and rose and ascended and is now seated on the Father's right-hand making intercession for the saints of God. Amen! People can condemn us to our grave (and they will like they did David in the Old Testament). But only God can condemn a person's body and soul to Hell forever (Matthew 10:28).
Why do you think king David said in Psalms 51:4, “Against thee, thee only have I sinned?” It's because people wouldn't forgive David for what he had done. David had to come to the realization that his sins were solely between him and God. People will drive you to suicide if you let them (and they are just as wicked according to James 2:10). One man even cursed David, threw stones and cast dust upon him (2nd Samuel 16:13). Even his neighbors were afraid to associate with him anymore. Psalms 31:11, “I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me.”
Most people don't realize that the words “enemy” and “enemies” are mentioned 105 times in Psalms. David was afflicted by many enemies because of the sins which he had committed, which was their excuse for justifying the hatred they already had for God's man.
I don't care who or how many people make allegations, every person is to be deemed innocent until proven guilty. That's justice my friend. No one has ever proven anything against Pastor Jack Hyles. Let the heathen rage and wicked men hurl they accusations, but until someone shows forth proof of wrong doing, Pastor Jack Hyles is to be deemed an innocent man! You can listen to Brother Hyles' sermons and read his books (all free online) with the assurance of knowing, that even 11-years after his death in 2001, NO ONE has brought forth any proof of wrongdoing. ANYONE can say ANYTHING against ANYBODY, but that doesn't mean it's true! More people desecrate and speak evil of Jesus Christ than any other person in history, yet we don't call a man guilty until we have solid proof. So don't be an unjust person, let he who is innocent remain innocent until PROVEN otherwise (and not merely based upon the allegations of hateful people).
I am certainly praying for the Hyles and Schaap family and I ask you to do so as well. 1st Thessalonians 5:25, “Brethren, pray for us.” As I have often said, and so say I again, if you want to know who the biggest sinner is, you found him right here. I am the biggest sinner that I know (and so are you if you're right with God, James 2:10). I didn't make my website ministry for self-righteous hypocrites, rebels and haters. I made my website ministry to help that one lost sheep out of a hundred find their way. I unconditionally love all of my web visitors, and pray daily for ALL of you. I pray for God's will to be done in your life. I know a lot of people have been wanting to know what I think about all this, and now you know. My friend, everything is alright in my Father's house!
My Lord knows the way through the Wilderness, all I have to do is follow,
My Lord knows the way through the Wilderness, all I have to do is follow;
Strength for today, is mine all the way, and all that I need for tomorrow,
My Lord knows the way through the Wilderness, all I have to do is follow.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
Proverbs 10:12, “Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.”
The Saved, Crucified, Resurrected And Ascended Life
(awesome MP3 sermon by Dr. Jack Hyles - Read Article)
Lord let me live from day to day,
In such a self-forgetful way,
That even when I kneel to pray,
My prayer shall be for others.
Others, Lord, yes, others;
Let this my motto be.
Help me to live for others
That I may live like Thee.
—Dr. Jack Hyles
