Horrible Churches Who Selectively Care About People
By David J. Stewart | February 2018 | Updated June 2018
Romans 14:10, “But why dost
thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set
at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.”
A web visitor recently asked me how I was doing, and this was my heartfelt response. I shared with him my pain of body and soul. Harvest Baptist Church on Guam has hurt me as much as my chronic neck pain, leaving me without a church family, even mocking my calamity and refusing to allow me to come back just to hear the preaching. Our churches are going to the Devil, and HBC is one of them...
I am in constant neck pain, like a toothache in back where the bone is. Also, the right side of my body, especially my leg, always feels half-asleep, due to nerve damage. I have burning spells during the night, like someone overlaid a giant menthol strip over my body. I cope with these afflictions daily, but it is the "norm" (normal) for me now, so I don't complain about it or get as depressed as I used to over it. I have learned to deal with it, claim God's Holy Spirit power, and move forward continually. God uses my sufferings to fuel my desire to work harder on my ministry, to take my mind off off my bodily afflictions.
I survive on pain medications, taking 80 mg daily of Oxycontin and a couple Percocet 10/325's daily, which greatly helps. Very few people understand or know what it feels like to live with constant chronic pain. It adversely changes your life permanently. It is a lonely feeling often, since no one knows what I am feeling inside physically or emotionally from the pain. God is my strength. I need Bible-preaching as much as my pain meds to keep me going, and of course, the pure Word of God in the King James Bible. I look forward to the end of this life! Philippians 3:21 is my favorite Bible verse, which promises me a new body fashioned like unto the Lord's body.
My wife sadly divorced me 12 years ago in 2006. I have never remarried, mainly because I haven't been looking too hard for a wife. My pain stifles my desire to diligently look for a wife. Most of the time I don't feel like doing anything. I like to stay home and just rest. That makes it hard to have a social life. There's a big church, Harvest Baptist Church in Barrigada, Guam, just down the street from me. I used to attend there for one year in 2014, but they called me and Dr. Jack Hyles "a cult" for exposing the Alexandrian Bible perversions (NIV, ASV, ESV, ERV, and hundreds more). They kicked me out and even mocked me, saying verbatim, "How's your beliefs working out for your social life?" They are wicked servants. They took away the only social life I had at church, then mocked my loneliness and calamity, leaving me to rot with no friends. They couldn't care less, because the going is still good for them, enjoying their wives, friends, religious careers, church family, et cetera. It is sickening.
I love them still, pray for them, and have placed them into God's hands for judgment (Romans 12:19). I spent $325 for a case of Gospels of John, sending them to their church. They didn't even thank me. I subscribed to the Sword of the Lord for 2 years for the pastor last year, for which he didn't say "thank you" either. They are ingrates and are setting their brother at nought, holding a grudge. This is the Bob Jones University crowd. My worst enemies have not been abortionists, witches, sodomites or atheists, but fellow Baptists (professed Christians)! Go figure! What Harvest Baptist Church on Guam has done, and is doing to me still (by banning me from returning to their church - I asked 3 times last year in 2017 if I could just hear the sermons, but they told me to go away), is as painful to my soul as is my neck to my body.
Anyway, that is a heavy burden on my heart, as it is difficult to find a good church on Guam, and my health hinders me from traveling too far to do anything.
I've been looking more lately than in the past, and God willing, may find someone. By if not, I am the Lord's and intend to serve Him faithfully until the day I go home to be with the heavenly family. Job said in Job 13:15, "Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him!" That is my testimony too. God is good always, always God is good!
Thank you for caring and asking about my health.
Have a good day,
For anyone reading this, if the shoe fits, wear it! Here's my story if you'd like to read much more. I see local kids on Guam with Harvest Baptist Academy T-shirts with all these local businesses listed, proving the following Scripture true, that no man can serve God and money. Luke 16:13, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” Harvest Baptist Church is a big religious school with a church on the side. What a sad joke for a ministry!!! That is my humble opinion. They never cared about me, only their little snobby clique of Bob Jones University graduates and rich airplane pilots. I say, to Hell with Harvest Baptist Cult and their satanic counterfeit Alexandrian Bible versions!!! To Hell with Harvest Baptist Cult on Guam and their ungodly support of satanic false prophet, a boastful 5-point Calvinist, Dr. John MacArthur!!! To Hell with their heresy of Lordship Salvation, and for them bidding Godspeed to ecumenical false prophet Ravi Zacharias!!! Churches like Harvest are the reason why so many people will never step foot into a church, because it's all phony and people see right through it! There is no power of the Holy Spirit!!!
I am torn between my love and duty as a believer to stand for THE TRUTH (Ephesians 5:11; 6:12; Titus 1:10-13; Galatians 3:1-3), and my need as a human being for fellowship with a local body of Christian believers in a church. So Harvest has put me into a peculiar situation where I either have to compromise my stand, and go along to get along with their apostasy just to have a church family; or I can stay home and take a stand with no social life, and be lonely and likely never find a wife. I actually chose the former in early 2017, desperate for fellowship in a church. But now they won't even take me back, and so I am forced to do the latter, and I am standing, hence this article (and many more to come, Lord willing). Someone needs to tell THE TRUTH! Someone needs to take a stand for God's Word, to uphold its purity, inspiration and authority. The pastors and staff at Harvest have social lives, wives, friends, so what do they care if I don't, right? They are some of the most selfish, shallow, arrogant and insensitive people I have ever met. They have sold-out to ecumenism, sold-out to promote sinister ministers like Ravi Zacharias and John MacArthur. They have decided to go along with the corrupt religious world, to find their niche and take their slice of the money pie. Bob Jones University is a joke today!
I am not bitter against Harvest, I am disgusted how they have mistreated me as an individual, and continue to do so, because if they'll crap on me (and they have), they'll crap on anybody who is not in their little clique. That is as ungodly as anything in Satan's world of darkness!!! When a so-called “church” sees a man hurting, knowing that he is in bodily and emotional pain (and I have the e-mails to prove they knew, and a prayer list from their church with my name on it from 2014, until they forced me out and gave up on me), and have suffered a divorce (I have it in writing that she refused to reconcile with me), and lost everything in this life, and have done nothing to hurt anyone, they are evildoers! Some so-called Christians just don't care about anybody except themselves. As long as the going is good for them, they don't care about others who are hurting, who are outside their clique. Harvest Baptist Church was my beloved church family, but they treat it like a grocery story, literally telling me to “go elsewhere” like it's just another MacDonald's or something. Kindly, that's not Bible Christianity! I care about people! I care about the truth! I CARE!!! Kindly, Harvest doesn't care! Thankfully, God cares!!!!!!!
Bob Jones University And The Alexandrian Cult Exposed! (PDF, Dr. Ruckman exposes them all)
Bob Jones Tells Everyone That The Purity Of God's Word Doesn't Matter And They Don't Care!
Anything can be justified if you are an ungodly person. Rejection hurts! If you don't like somebody, you can find a dozen lame reasons to shun them away, blame them, and vindicate your own wicked actions. One of the horrible assistant pastors at Harvest stooped so low as to compare me to John Mark, and them to Paul. That is so rotten and unbiblical what he said. Paul wasn't denying John Mark permission to sit in church and listen to the preaching. Besides, Paul lacked a proper spirit of forgiveness and wasn't right with God to deny John Mark a second chance as a missionary. Paul was wrong! Albeit, I just wanted to go to church at Harvest.
Let me quote a man whom I respect, and HBC is not worthy of this man's presence when he comes to preach on Guam. It is tragic that any person could ever feel unloved in a church. I once heard Evangelist Les Ollila make the following beautiful statement...
“Church is a place where people should be able to hurt out loud. And I should be there to put my arms around those who are willing to hurt out loud.” —Evangelist Les Ollila, from the MP3 sermon, “The Judgment Seat Of Christ.”
Someone needs to tell Harvest Baptist Church on Guam to walk the walk, and not just talk the talk!!! I've been hurting out loud since 2009 when I first visited Harvest, but no one cared about me. I attended for one year in 2013-2014 but they didn't care about me back then either. I was hurting out loud. My name even made it to the prayer list for “chronic neck pain,” which I kept and still cherish. The pastor's young granddaughter drew me a picture with crayons for a ukulele that I gave her parents to give her, and I cherish that picture, which is still on my refrigerator. They moved to the states, and shortly thereafter the church forced me out for telling the truth that the modern Bible versions are corrupt. So now I'm like Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, shunned away for being different, for being King James Bible only. They'd rather honor false prophets like Dr. Ravi Zacharias at Harvest, and tell me to get lost. You cannot just pick and choose who you care about. When a believer pleads for help, for prayer, for love, for fellowship, from a local church, and the pastors and staff of that ministry shun them away, you know that they don't walk in the fruit of the Spirit. Many pastors simply don't care, the ministry is just an occupation to them, a salary. The pastors at Harvest Baptist Church (HBC) on Guam simply DON'T CARE!!!
How Bob Jones University Betrays The Holy Bible! (they have turned scholarship into a God)
When the pastor gave up on me, they all gave up on me! No one, not one person at Harvest Baptist Church truly cared about me! Where did they all go? What a bunch of insincere hypocrites! This is the Bob Jones University crowd! In loneliness and desperation for a church family I sent three e-mails to the church pastors in 2017, humbly and apologetically requesting permission just to attend church services, for which they wrote back and told me to “go elsewhere”!!! The e-mail from the pastor implied I was their “enemy,” and that is the word he used. I respectfully offered to meet with them in the pastor's office and was willing to do whatever it took to make peace with my church family, but they didn't care and told me to go away.
You see, in their spiritually sick minds, if you're not officially voted in as a member, you don't count, you're nothing, you are a nobody to them. That is evil. Life doesn't work that way. When someone attends a church for a year, makes friends, laughs together, cries together, sings together, prays together, falls in love with people, and feels happy to have a church family, THEY ARE A MEMBER IN THEIR HEART, like it or not! Only a lame-brain, ungodly, stupid pastor, would even try to allege that someone was “never a member.”
I'm a faithful Christian, albeit imperfect, so I don't choose to make friends that drink booze, hang out in karaoke bars and Jesus means nothing to them; so I don't have any close friends. And sadly, the local church at Harvest doesn't want me either. They welcome reprobates like Ray Comfort, Paul Washer, John MacArthur and Ravi Zacharias, but I am ostracized by HBC for telling THE TRUTH! What a bunch of cowards!!! Love doesn't fear the truth! Love doesn't discard a brother who tells the truth!
Satan In The Churches (Bob Jones University corrupts churches with their poison teachings!)
It is tragic, but true, that the real New Testament church is being driven underground in America. Faithful believers like me, who expose the Alexandrian counterfeit Bible versions, and expose false prophets like Dr. John MacArthur, and refute the false gospel of Lordship Salvation, are being forced out of the churches as troublemakers. Harvest literally called me and Dr. Jack Hyles “a cult” in 2014 for exposing the Alexandrian Bible perversions. It is crazy!!! Churches are so backslidden and apostate, that they don't even realize a person who contends for the faith. It's bizarre, but Christianity is being driven underground. On the face of things in Europe and the United States, these societies look like Christian nations, there are plenty of churches, but when one digs deeper, when one really IS a Christian, and wishes to make a stand for the Christian faith, one quickly finds apostasy and rejection.
Harvest Baptist Church on Guam needs to wake up and walk the walk, not just talk the talk!!! They invite Dr. Ollila, but they don't listen to him; and why should they, they won't even listen to God! And just to say, I haven't been able to find another church since 2014. It's not that easy. It was hard enough for me to enter cold-turkey into Harvest in 2013. I was so nervous and unsure what to expect, but the senior pastor made me feel welcomed and special, at first. If he would have simply continued doing what he did when I started, there wouldn't have been a problem; but instead he changed, viewing and treating me as an enemy when I handed him Dr. Al Lacy's excellent book, “NIV: THE ANTICHRIST'S BIBLE!” I was sincerely trying to help him as a friend.
The Alexandrian Bible Crowd Must Be Rebuked! (Bob Jones College: enemies of God's Word)
As Dr. Tom Ferrell said at Harvest Baptist Church (ironically), “A friend helps a friend to see.” We'll I did that and they counted me as their enemy. That's why I say respectfully that they ought to WALK THE WALK, and not merely TALK THE TALK. Would it have been too much for the pastors at HBC to tell me that they love me in the Lord. I begged like a pauper in 2017 to come to the HBC men's prayer breakfast on Saturday morning, but they refused. I asked if I could please come to Wednesday night Bible study, but they refused. James 2:15, “If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” Who cares, right?

Harvest Baptist Church Woefully Bids Godspeed to Heretic Ravi Zacharias
I wouldn't step into a place like Harvest if I had a fundamental Baptist church to attend, but I don't. I attended another local church for a while, but the horrible pastor is a total spineless wimp, who calls Harvest their “sister church.” I am being nice not to mention more names. I have more respect for a pimp than I do a pastor who bids Godspeed to false prophets! 2nd John 1:11, “If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” Guam's Baptist churches are horribly sick, with blood on their hands! And worse, they are infectiously contagious!!! They all promote reprobate Chick Tracts that require a willingness to turn away from sinful behavior to be saved, which is damnable heresy! Harvest bids Godspeed to reprobate preacher Ravi Zacharias, who bids Godspeed to unsaved Mormons, honors homosexual Catholic priests and teaches a false gospel. Ravi is a devil-preacher, and Harvest Baptist Church bids him Godspeed. They invited Ravi to speak and honored him in front of 1,000 deceived people in June of 2017 at Harvest's Family Living Center!!! It is shameful. Am I so bad for telling THE TRUTH? Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”
I am tired of wicked pastors ADDING human effort to the simple Gospel, corrupting the truth. It is a serious matter! Devil-Dog Preacher Dr. Ravi Zacharias' Lame Ecumenical Mumbo-Jumbo (This is sickening!!!) Somebody needs to care! If we don't care as believers, then who will? If not now, when? If not here, where? I am just a humble sinner redeemed by God's wondrous grace. I am a nobody, but Jesus is everything. I have never made a penny for all my labors for Christ, and never plan to. In sharp contrast, Ravi Zacharias rakes in $25,000,000 each and every year! Folks, that's $100,000,000 in four years!!! The reason why Ravi can attract that kind of donations is because he is so vague, watered-down, lame and ecumenical that dozens of different religions in 55 nations have invited him to speak for them particularly college campuses worldwide. Ravi doesn't preach the biblical Gospel, he hobnobs with the Devil's religious crowd, making religious people feel comfortable in their woeful unsaved condition. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again. That truthful statement sadly defines and epitomizes Ravi's ministry! END OF ARTICLE
