Be A Voice For The Lord On The Internet!
by David J. Stewart | October 2019
“Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it
Colossians 4:6, “Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.”
What precious Scriptures! The Bible likens the believer's influence to salt. The Bible teaches in Luke 14:33, “So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.” The next Scripture is our former text verse in verse 34. And then in verse 35 the Lord says (concerning salt that has lost its savour), “It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.” What is Jesus saying? Simply, the Lord is reiterating His teaching in Luke 8:14, “And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.” Unless a disciple of Christ forsakes all—the cares, riches and pleasures of this life—it will render him useless for God. The love of this world keeps us from being soulwinners!
Life is short, Hell is hot, and eternity is a long time! We only have a certain limited amount of time here on earth. Literally, our days are numbered. Just think how your life would change completely today, if you knew the exact date of your death. Hebrews 9:27, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” What if you knew that on March 5, 2034 you would die! How would that affect your life? Would you serve God more earnestly as a believer? Are you even a Christian believer? What would you do? What plans and preparations would you start making? Would you spend more time witnessing 'THE GOSPEL' to lost sinners? Sure you would if you love Jesus Christ! Regarding “salt,” the Lord is telling us that distractions hinder us from serving God. I guarantee you that the big well-to-do churches today—with their big buildings, plush carpeting, padded pews, comfortable air-conditioning, overhead projection Tv screens, video and audio equipment, first-class entertainment, and lavish pastor's salaries—have LOST THEIR SALT FOR CHRIST!!!
Sadly, big churches do the least for God (as far as soulwinning)! Salt makes people THIRSTY! Is your life and the words you speak (or type on the internet), making people thirsty for God? Most professed Christians today have lost their savour, and are bland. Nobody wants what they have! I have lived at my present residence in Harvestville (most of my neighbours go to Harvest Baptist Church) since February of 2014. Over the past 5 years, only one religious group has ever knocked on my door, and you can probably guess who it was. I'll give you a hint—IT WASN'T HARVEST! No, it was the faithful Jehovah's Witness cult. Not once, not twice, not three times, but at least four times they've come to my door, and I'll tell you, if I didn't know any better I'd go join them, just knowing that they care about me! From what I have seen in my life, two terms that do not mix well are “Baptist” and “caring about people.”
I literally watched an older Caucasian man from Harvest, a member there, boss around one of his employees in public. The “boss man” had just boasted to me that he had enough money in the bank to pay cash for his home's mortgage if he wanted. The employee he was being tough on had an infected leg. The island guy had cut his leg on some coral, and it had doubled in size from the swelling. The leg didn't look good. I asked him why he didn't go to the doctor, but he said he didn't have any money. So when the day was over, I took the poor guy to the FHP clinic to have his leg looked at. It cost me $200, and the doctor gave him some antibiotics to save his leg. Then I drove him home. Literally, the young man was living in a 20 foot container in the boonies (woods). You see, I am not a hearer, I am a doer. I am not bragging, I couldn't care less about getting my $200 back in Heaven. I am sick of stuff-shirt, arrogant, I'm better than you, cowardly, manipulative, spoiled, judgmental, ungrateful, face-stuffing, country club type, selfish jerk, calloused, Smart Alec, jokester, indifferent, Baptist church people who call themselves “Christians”!
Hey, I'm sinner NUMERO UNO! I am nothing, zilch, a troublemaker with a website, a horrible sinner, whatever you want to call me, but I am 100% sincere in my LOVE FOR THE TRUTH, and LOVE FOR PEOPLE and LOVE FOR MY PRECIOUS SAVIOR! I couldn't care less what my critics, haters and enemies say about me—I am going to love more, help more, give more, do more, pray more, care more, fight the good fight of faith more, write more, and be all that I can be (by God's wondrous grace) to BE A VOICE FOR THE LORD!!! We are all nothing in this life. Galatians 6:3, “For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.” 1st Samuel 15:17, “And Samuel said, When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the LORD anointed thee king over Israel?” I am just a nobody with a ministry website, a voice crying in the wilderness of cyberspace for the Lord, but I AM A VOICE! We have a great responsibility as Christian believers to SPEAK UP for God. Satan wants us to SHUT UP, but God wants us to SPEAK UP!
Ironically, the very independent Baptist church that I heard that great statement in (Harvest Baptist Church on Guam), told me to SHUT UP about the corrupt modern Bible versions that their church shamefully uses, promotes and sells! Go figure! They used to have a lady with an Australian accent. I loved her voice! She made that statement on their KHMG 88.1 FM radio station. I used to listen to their radio station all the time, but stopped in 2017 after they banned me from returning to Harvest Baptist Church (not even to hear the sermonettes). It was too painful to hear Christian music, and not be allowed to be part of their church family and find a wife there hopefully, so I stopped listening to their radio station altogether. They banned me because I am in the Hyles-Anderson College camp (back when HAC were honest and stood for what their founder Pastor Jack Hyles believed and taught), and they are in the Bob Jones University camp. These two camps don't get along because we strongly disagree over the inspiration of the King James Bible. In short, I believe the King James Bible is inspired and THEY DON'T! Also, I believe that all of the Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort based modern translations are corrupt and OF THE DEVIL and THEY DON'T. And so they don't want anything to do with me or THE TRUTH!!!
Oh, but there's much more...
They also told me to SHUT UP about Dr. John MacArthur being a false prophet, because he requires SEVEN THINGS to be saved!
They told me to SHUT UP about Martin Luther not being saved, because he taught the heresy of Baptismal Regeneration up until his death in 1546!
Harvest Baptist Church told me to SHUT UP about the lie of Lordship Salvation!
And they told me to SHUT UP about Pastor Jack Hyles, who faithfully proclaimed THE TRUTH that the King James Bible is the exclusive inspired Words of God today for English-speaking people!
Yes, the pastors at Harvest told me to SHUT UP, and their staff backed up their apostate pastors 100%, and the church congregation rejected me, following their apostate leaders into a pit of spiritual darkness. All I did was TELL THE TRUTH!!! I SPOKE UP for God, telling THE TRUTH, but they couldn't handle it, and told me to SHUT UP instead. I was simply doing what the lady with the beautiful Australian accent on Harvest's KHMG 88.1 FM radio station told me to do! She said: SATAN wants us to SHUT UP, but GOD wants us to SPEAK UP! And so I did, and they told me to SHUT UP instead, but I cannot do that because God wants me to SPEAK UP! Sadly, I lost the only church family that I had, and have not been to church since, because I have nowhere to go. That is on them and I have perfect peace in this important doctrinal matter before God. Humbly, if I am right and Harvest is wrong in all that I say—then heavy, heavy, hang God's judgment upon their heads at the Judgment Seat of Christ, and woe be upon them for not caring about THE TRUTH nor their CHRISTIAN BROTHER who begged for their help during a dark time in my life! A hurting dog barks!
And may I say, God knows my heart, that I feel nothing but love toward the people at Harvest Baptist Church. Harvest's senior pastor at the time in 2017 e-mailed me back (when I humbly requested permission to return to church services), but he spelled my name with a lowercase letter, “david” (which is intentional disrespect). That was so childish of him. I called him “Pastor” (always capitalized). I began every statement of my opinion with the word “respectfully,” because I respect his position as the church Pastor. I told him that I loved him in the Lord. After he declined my request to return, I kindly told him that I cared more than he does, and that is the problem. I cleaned Harvest's men's room in 2014 when they had their Mission's Conference. It wreaked with the stench of urine. First impressions are lasting impressions! That is shameful for any church to have filthy restrooms! I wanted to make the church look good, so with the janitor's permission, I went and cleaned the men's room. You see, I CARE!
The senior pastor's exact words to me via e-mail were, “Go elsewhere.” I then kindly explained to him in my reply, that it didn't surprise me that I meant nothing to him, because he doesn't even care about the inspired Words of God. That man uses, promotes and sells dozens of versions of the Bible. I tell you, the man with two watches never knows what time it is! And you simply cannot trust a pastor who uses more than one Bible version! The King James Bible is not a “version,” it is the WORD OF GOD!!! The King James Bible is not one of many, it is one of a kind! I was born-again by the incorruptible Word of God (1st Peter 1:23), and I know my mother!
That shameful pastor has since resigned, to go ruin hundreds of young people's lives as vice president of some deeper-life theological cemetery in the states, collecting a 6-digit salary. It is a disgrace! At what point in our churches and Bible colleges did THE TRUTH stop being important? This Bible, that Bible, it doesn't matter, God's Words are in there somewhere, just use them all, right! I'm not kidding. I heard the former pastor of Harvest say on their radio station, in a recorded church service, that he wasn't surfing the internet during the special music, he said: “I was searching through different versions of the Bible to prepare my sermon!” My God, my God, why have pastors forsaken Thee? I truly do love the man, but he doesn't know how to love me back in the Lord. I feel sorry for him, truly.
Dear reader, I am being “A VOICE” (here's the full MP3 sermon by Dr. Hyles) for the Lord! Everyone who preaches and upholds THE TRUTH is a friend of righteousness. Proverbs 12:17, “He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.” I know God is not against me, because I am telling THE TRUTH. What saith the Scripture? Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.” If I speak THE TRUTH, then Harvest Baptist Church is in big trouble. God does not go along to get along with apostasy! God does not sanction the hundreds of English Bible perversions today, nor two for that matter. Bob Jones University might as well support ALL of the corrupt Alexandrian versions, because the English Standard Version (ESV) that BJU supports, sanctions, promotes and sells is 100% Alexandrian based, and has all the same corruptions of the New International Version (NIV), which attacks the deity of Jesus Christ!
Please understand that I do not preach against Harvest Baptist Church (HBC) and other churches in self-righteousness. I am the biggest sinner I know! And so are you if you are a humble person before God, because you know yourself better than anyone. If you think other people are worse than you, it is only because you are comparing yourself to other sinners instead of to a holy God. We are all woeful sinners deserving of Hell. I realize that the folks at Harvest are not perfect, but they choose to hang onto their wickedness. They choose to continue using corruptible seed. They also invited and honored false prophet Ravi Zacharias in 2017, in which they shamefully and sinfully bid Godspeed to Ravi at HBC.
On and on, the apostasy goes! When I attended HBC in 2013-2014, they distributed study materials by Dr. John MacArthur. They sold MacArthur's Study Bible in their church's religious bookstore. I'm not even getting into all the other minor issues wrong with Harvest (immodesty, promoting Harry Potter, promoting Walt Disney, teenagers texting during preaching, staff inappropriate touching between female single staff and married men, et cetera). I'm just exposing them for promoting John MacArthur, Ravi Zacharias, counterfeit Bible versions, the sacramental salvation heretic Martin Luther, and the Lordship Salvation heresy! But they think I'm the bad guy.
I love them all so much in the Lord at Harvest, and miss them as my church family (nearly all my friends I made back then are gone today); and I very much miss the woman I had hoped to marry (she's always on my mind); and I truly wish I could make it all up to them. My hands are tied because they are holding a grudge against me. I am just a humble, broken, meek, man, with no where to go from here, until the Lord opens a door for me. My neck pain dominates my life, making me laid back and easy-going (when I'm not tensely passionate about something...lol). I am so lonely throughout the day and night. Pray for me my beloved web visitors, as I do for you daily. All we've got as Christians is each other. I'm tired, but God is my strength. I want to move out of this dark chapter of my life, but the pages are stuck together so it seems, and the chapter needs closure. I'm am perplexed where to go from here in my life, being alone.
The Truth is Continually Under Attack By the Devil
Jeremiah 9:5, “And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.”
Love me, hate me, understand me, judge me, pray for me, curse me if you will, I am telling THE TRUTH! I'll be the jerk for Jesus! I'll be the John the Baptist who got his head chopped off for preaching against sin. I'll be the rude guy like Paul. 2nd Corinthians 11:6, “But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.” The church at Galatia got mad at Paul, considering him their enemy, because Paul exposed their heresy. Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” Some Smart-alecky wimp from Pensacola Christian College (PCC), an intern pastor on Guam about 18 inches tall in spiritual stature (who thankfully quit and left the island), felt compelled to remind me in 2018 that I am “not an apostle.” Yeah, and he wasn't a good pastor! According to him, only an apostle can criticize a bad church. What a fool! It didn't come as a surprise that he called Harvest “our sister church.” You mean sister in spiritual whoredom? I don't see any stipulation in Ephesians 5:11 about not criticizing churches. Ephesians 5:11, “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” All is fair in love and war!
It also came as no surprise to me, that that arrogant intern admitted to me previously that he didn't know even one thing wrong with the new Bible versions. Of course he doesn't, because Pensacola Christian College (PCC) helped train him, and they are indifferent toward THE TRUTH. I say “arrogant” because he called me “obsessed” over the Bible issue debate. God has burned a passion into my heart over the inspiration of the King James Bible; therefore, this is my ministry! That particular pastor who criticized me was stuck on the kings of Israel, but I didn't criticize him for it. Literally, 90% of his sermons in church were about the kings of Israel in the Old Testament. Talk about “obsessed.”
God knows that I've tried to find a Baptist church to attend since Harvest ousted me in 2014 (and also they denied my humble request to return to church in 2017), but ecumenical pastors don't like me. Jesus said “out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” (Matthew 12:34). I absolutely HATE these corrupt modern Bible versions and the counterfeit plan of Lordship Salvation, and it is hard for me not to speak out against those falsehoods! That is why Harvest Baptist Church doesn't want me in their congregation, I am a truth-teller. In so doing they have invited Satan into their midst! I was happy to be at Harvest, until they told me to stop telling THE TRUTH. Kindly, this is not North Korea—people have a right to their own opinions and to express them on a personal level. That is all I did, which is a crime at Harvest. Evidently Harvest Baptist Church is a small North Korea, where your opinions must be kept to yourself.
I remember after church one Sunday evening in 2014, that one of the associate pastors of Harvest Baptist Church said to me in the church's main auditorium: “Brother David, we are willing to put up with you, if you are willing to put up with us!” I had never told them about my website ministry. I am not sure why he said that to me, but I was really encouraged by his words, because it meant they would let me be me, and I was happy to hear that. Unfortunately, the senior pastor didn't feel the same way. I was rebuked for sharing THE TRUTH that the modern Bible versions are corrupt and of the Devil. I was also rebuked for telling THE TRUTH that Martin Luther was not a Christian, who taught the heresy of sacramental salvation. I was compelled to leave my church family. It felt like another divorce. I cannot express in words the pain of soul I felt, the uncontrollable tears all the way home, and my sadness over losing my family in the Lord. I became depressed in the months and years to follow, when they gave up on me, and I had nowhere else to go. That is on them. 1st Samuel 24:12, “The LORD judge between me and thee, and the LORD avenge me of thee: but mine hand shall not be upon thee.”
In 2014, I heard the senior pastor tell the church from the pulpit one Sunday morning, that since the church has members who are both conservative and others more liberal, they intentionally use a mixture of contemporary music and older hymns combined. I actually like that and have no problem with it. I think it is desirable (in my humble opinion) because I love all kinds of music as a musician. So I figured the same held true doctrinally, that they would tolerate my fundamentalist King James Bible only position, and not mind me expressing it to others. Boy I was wrong! They want a church with a mixture of contemporary and traditional music, that uses dozens of Bible versions, and even two different plans of salvation floating around, but they absolutely WON'T TOLERATE A TRUTH-TELLER (LIKE ME) WHO NAILS DOWN A POSITION!!! Effectively, all I did was point out on a personal basis to people I met, that there is ONLY ONE GOSPEL, and that there is ONLY ONE HOLY BIBLE!!! I love and miss the people at Harvest. I cried in almost every church service, because I live with a broken and contrite heart. To whom much is forgiven, the same loveth much! In addition, my neck always hurts, which makes it difficult for me to sit through a church service.
In a needful sermon titled: “Shibboleth: Seven Signs of Pseudo-King James Onlyism,” Dr. William P. Grady exposes Bob Jones University and Pensacola Christian College for NOT CARING about the inspiration of the Word of God! Although there are some things about Dr. Grady that I don't like (e.g., his belief that people were saved by works in the Old Testament, and also his open slanderous disdain of fallen preachers); yet, I am thankful for the valuable Bible history provided by Dr. Grady in his sermons and books. According to Dr. Grady in the preceding sermon, Dr. Jack Hyles became King James Bible only in 1984. Interestingly, I enrolled into Hyles-Anderson College in 1985. I am so thankful for that wonderful opportunity!!! GOD BLESS DR. JACK HYLES!!!
Pensacola Christian College (PCC) has the horrible attitude (as evidenced at the end of this sermon), that Christians should leave the fighting to others. I don't get it, I really don't. Why don't Christian leaders care? This is NOT a mere battle between a couple Bible colleges! It is easier for pastors to put down Dr. Peter Ruckman for his messed-up life, than to join the battle over God's Word. Humbly, that is terrible! I am sick and tired of pastors avoiding the battle (what pastors call “the controversy”). No, it is APOSTASY! When pastors don't want to join the battle over God's Word, IT IS APOSTASY!!!
“God has a special rebuke, again and again and again in the Bible, toward those people who keep their neutrality in the work of God!”—SOURCE: Dr. Jack Hyles, a quote from the great MP3 sermon, “Where Were You In The Battle?”
You show me a man who has a strong zeal for King James Bible inspiration, and I'll show you a man who cares about other important matters as well. Preachers ought to proclaim “the whole counsel of God,” instead of getting caught up on “just one issue” of the King James Bible. The problem is that preachers and Bible colleges AREN'T LISTENING. Pastors wants preachers like you (and me) to mention the issue once every couple years, and then not bring it up for another couple years. NOT A CHANCE!!! A preacher ought to preach for or against, whatever needs to be preached for or against! When a preacher's words fall on deaf ears, he needs turn up the heat, preach harder, longer and beg for more of the fullness of the Holy Spirit when he preaches!
Also, I am sick and tired of horrible preachers trying to put down Pastor Jack Hyles, because he changed his position on the King James Bible in 1984, from one of correcting the Bible to protecting the Bible! Ungodly preachers attempt to weaken Brother Hyles' new position, by emphasizing that he didn't always believe what he preached after 1984. That is retarded! Brother Hyles is not the issue—THE INSPIRATION OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE IS THE ISSUE!
Anybody who has any spiritual discernment at all, knows that Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort were ungodly Anglican ministers of the 19th century, who were not saved, and gave us a corrupt 'The New Testament in the Original Greek' manuscript. So today's Bible colleges claim to use only the King James Bible to counter this fact. But they fall woefully short by denying the inspiration of the King James Bible, which is the Devil's foot in the door toward accepting Westcott and Hort's garbage! My question is: Why would any Bible professor, pastor or church deny the inspiration of the King James Bible? WE DO have an inspired Holy Bible in English, and it is without controversy the KING JAMES BIBLE! If you don't see that, GET RIGHT WITH GOD!
Pastor Texe Marrs thinks the book of Esther is a fraud! I couldn't disagree more. Esther is inspired. I was born-again of incorruptible Word (1st Peter 1:23). I know my spiritual mother!
There Is No Bible Preservation Without Inspiration
It's Time To Come Out Of The Closet (Dr. Hyles; The Bible's under attack—where's the 7,000?)
“We're in a battle for the Word
of God, that's the big battle!”
—BATTLE OF THE AGES (an MP3 sermon by Dr. Jack Hyles, “The King James Bible crowd is going to come out on top!”)
Respectfully, some pastors don't want to get caught up in the longtime battle over the King James Bible between Bob Jones University and Pensacola Christian College. That is like General Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964) in World War II saying that he doesn't want to get caught up in the debate over which gun is the most effective weapon on the battlefield. Well, if one weapon is inferior to the other, then it is a big issue! If the enemy is messing with the weaponry, then it is a big deal! There is not a Bible version in existence that even pales in comparison to the King James Bible!!! Folks, the battle is not just between Bible colleges, it involves every born-again Christian!!! The Devil has crept hundreds of corrupt English Bible versions into the churches. It is a big deal! Somebody needs to cry wolf! I AM CRYING WOLF!!!
In case you still don't understand what I have just shared with you, let me make it very simple. There are many pastors and Bible professors today who claim that the King James Bible has a bunch of mistakes, errors and problems with it! This is Satan's way of getting his foot in the door! If you give the Devil an inch, he'll take a foot, and then he'll become a RULER! As cute as that saying is, it is 100% true! If you accept the horrible idea that our beloved King James Bible is less than ideal, and that it is not inspired today, and that only intellectual scholars hold the key to properly interpreting the Words of God—THEN WE ARE DOOMED!!!
Sadly, the churches today want to remain shallow. They claim that they just want to win souls (and boy that does sound so noble), but history evidences that indifference toward the inspiration of God's Word always leads to sinful compromise and apostasy down the road. Look at Moody Bible Institute today, who support false prophets like Dr. John MacArthur! Hey, I know a man who didn't like Bible inspiration either, and he was an avowed atheist...VOLTAIRE!
“The Bible is not the inspired, inerrant and 100% historically true words of God. ... If we would destroy the Christian religion, we must first of all destroy man’s belief in the Bible.” —Voltaire (French philosopher and former unbeliever 1694-1778 - He now knows better [in Hell])
Did you get that? If you won't listen to a fellow brother in the Lord like me, then hear with this hellbound atheist said! Voltaire understood that the key to destroy the Christian religion is to destroy man's belief in an inspired Bible. Voltaire even used the word “inspired”! Where does all this apostasy come from? I'll tell you—it all starts when someone makes light of the inspiration of the Word of God. Remember, we see the first appearance of the Devil (that old serpent - Revelation 20:2) sitting in the Bible under the tree of Knowledge! If you're not part of the SOLUTION, then you're part of the PROBLEM!
God Pity the Preacher Who Supports the Modern Corrupt Bible Versions!
“Beware of false knowledge; it is more
dangerous than ignorance.” —George Bernard Shaw
“The evil that is in the world almost always comes of ignorance, and good intentions
may do as much harm as malevolence if they lack understanding.” —Albert Camus
Three Categories of King James Bible Believers
Dr. Grady rightly teaches that there are THREE CATEGORIES of King James Bible believers:
Those who study and KNOW why they believe the King James Bible is our Final Authority.
Those who ignorantly GO ALONG with a leader who believes that the King James Bible is our Final Authority.
Those who SUPERFICIALLY profess to be “King James Bible ONLY,” but call the first two groups “radical,” denying Bible inspiration.
I am definitely in the first of the preceding groups. I KNOW why I believe that the King James Bible is man's Final Authority. And may I say, it is also our ONLY Authority. LET GOD BE TRUE, BUT EVERY MAN A LIAR (ROMANS 3:4). This is by far the smallest of the three groups. Most Christians merely go along with whatever they are taught, easily deceived. The Bible says that the people at Berea (a small city in northern Greece) were more noble than they at Thessalonica. Acts 17:11, “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Gotta love those folks in a small town who SEARCHED THE SCRIPTURES DAILY!
The very practice of correcting the King James Bible compels young people not to take it as serious. I mean, if the Bible we hold in our hands is full of mistakes, then how do we know what THE TRUTH is? Did God really leave us at the mercy of Hebrew and Greek scholars and intellectuals? ...
“When schools have the King James Bible corrected by the Textus Receptus across America, the Bible begins losing its affect on people!” —Dr. William P. Grady
“Never forget what I'm about to say: There is a direct correlation between knowing the Bible and believing the Bible!” —Dr. William P. Grady
“There is a direct correlation between how much of that Bible you will eventually know, versus how much of it you really believe!” —Dr. William P. Grady
Pseudo King James onlyites superficially claim to believe the Bible, but they really don't. They are some of the most shallow Bible students on the earth. There is a stark difference between pastors across America who were trained by shallow Bible-correcting professors, versus pastors who were trained by preachers to be PREACHERS!!!
Thank God for grammatically challenged country preachers! Bob Jones Sr. was a peanut farmer turned preacher. Amen! ...
“I'd rather hear a man say 'I seen something' who saw, then hear a man say 'I have seen it' who didn't see anything!” —Dr. Bob Jones Sr. (1883-1968)
By default pastors are to be respected and honored, but when they start teaching lies, garbage and junk theology, they forfeit that right! I am not an apostle, but I AM A VOICE! As much as I criticize Dr. John MacArthur for being wrong on salvation, I 100% fully agree with him that the pastor is NOT the authority in the church, THE WORD OF GOD IS THE AUTHORITY!!!
God gave me an opinionated soul and a big mouth! Dr. Jack Hyles used to say that there were more opinions per square foot at Hyles-Anderson College than anywhere else in the world. Yes Sir, that is so true! That is why I went to Hyles-Anderson College, because I couldn't go anywhere else, my heart wouldn't let me! I had to be where THE TRUTH was coming from! The Youth Conferences in Hammond at First Baptist Church, the weeklong Revivals at our Baptist church in Chicago, the multiple summer camp trips to the Bill Rice Ranch in Murfreesboro, Tennessee—my heart was aching and hungry for THE TRUTH, so that I could HELP OTHERS for the Lord Jesus Christ! All I have ever wanted in my life was for God to use me for His glory and purpose.
Don't Miss the Opportunity to Stand Up for God's Word While You Can!
The Bible is important to me! And if it isn't important to you, shame on you! And if you're one of these people who thinks that King James Bible only advocates are “one-issue people,” then GET RIGHT WITH GOD! Respectfully, some pastors hypocritically invite and honor the biggest one-issue con-man in the world, Ken Ham, who raked-in over $36,000,000 in 2017 for Answers-in-Genesis from JUST ONE-ISSUE... Creationism. Yet when Dr. Bill Grady makes a big issue about the Inspiration of our beloved King James Bible, then some pastors criticize him for it! That's not right! So some pastors are okay with Ken Ham being a one-issue guy, but not Pastor Grady! That tells me that the issue is not about being a one-issue person, nor about staying out of the fight between BJU and PCC—IT'S ABOUT PASTORS JUST NOT WANTING TO STAND UP FOR THE WORD OF GOD!!!
“God has a special rebuke, again and again and again in the Bible, toward those people who keep their neutrality in the work of God!”—SOURCE: Dr. Jack Hyles, a quote from the great MP3 sermon, “Where Were You In The Battle?”
The man who believes nothing is vulnerable to Satanic deception. The man who doesn't stand for anything is vulnerable to fall for anything! Proverbs 28:1, “The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” I am bold because I humbly know that I am right. I don't like being right, I like being on the side of God Who is right! I'm too stupid to know right from wrong, but God does know, which is why He authored the Bible for us. Proverbs 20:24, “Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?” Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” I don't trust my heart. Man's heart is desperately wicked the Bible says. No one is above sin. NO ONE! I don't care who you are, you are a woeful sinner! The $64,000 question is: Have your sins been washed away by the blood of the Lamb? Are you a born-again, blood-washed, redeemed, child of God? Salvation is free if you don't have it and want it!
The following cool banners are just an image that I added my own choice of words to. Be a voice for the Lord my friend...
