The Curse of Pastors Without a Pure Heart

By David J. Stewart | April 2018

I Peter 1:22, “Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto
unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently.”

       There is nothing as tragic as a pastor, who is influencing a flock that belongs to God, who does not have a pure heart toward his calling. Being a pastor is a position, which no man who doesn't feel called by God to be a preacher ought to hold. Pastors without pure hearts are destroying God's vineyard, turning the churches into fun centers, spiritual museums and religious mortuaries. I believe that God created me to be a preacher before I was born. I have always believed that, since about the age of 15, two years after I was saved. My parents dedicated me to the Lord at age one at the Salvation Army to serve the Lord. I believe God has honored that dedication.

Please don't misunderstand me. I don't think I am anything special. Galatians 6:3, “For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.” I am just a clump of clay, created in God's image. I know that I am special to God, uniquely made, as are ALL human beings, but I also know that apart from God I am nothing except dirt. I KNOW that God created me for a purpose, and I believe that purpose is to preach THE TRUTH!

Sadly, many pastors today enrolled into religious seminary for the sole purpose of pursuing a career in the clergy, with no purity of heart, only in it for the money! This is why we see atheists, homosexuals and women pastoring churches, which is a sin. Only a man of God ought to lead God's flock of sheep, not fleece them! We've got a bunch of arrogant deadbeats behind church pulpits today, with no backbone, no determination, and no purity of heart. How do I know that? I am glad you asked my friend. You show me a pastor who is okay with using two conflicting Bible versions, which were translated from two different ancient Greek and Hebrew texts, and I'll show you a compromised man who does NOT have a pure heart. How can he, when he sanctions multiple Bible versions which disagree with each other? It's stupidity!

You show me a pastor who is acceptant of multiple plans of salvation, and I'll show you a pathetic clown who has no business being in any church pulpit. I mean, salvation is either by grace alone without works, and you don't have to turn away from sin, confess Christ before men, make Jesus “Lord” of your life, forsake the world and surrender your life to follow Jesus; or else you must do those things to earn your salvation, but it cannot be both! Again, it is stupidity! A pastor or Christian layman, who is pure of heart, would NEVER tolerate more than one Holy Bible, more than one plan of salvation (i.e., the Gospel), more than one Savior, or more than one God. Today's money-hungry, insincere, pastors are willing to go along with just about anything to appease their ministry peers.

The Bible has much to say about God's words being PURE, and how God is PURE with the PURE of heart...

Psalm 12:6, “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”

Psalms 18:26, “With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.”

Psalms 19:8, “The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure.” enlightening the eyes.”

Psalms 119:140, “Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.”

Today's churches are contaminated, arrogant, sinfully proud, stiffnecked and broken, but not beyond repair. All that is needed is a genuine man of God to take a stand and do the dirty work, that is, the hard thing. Pastors are on the frontlines today, under attack and need to be very careful to not get too close to their congregations. The closer that you get to a group of people, the less you can help them. That's just the way it is. I think a pastor should stay busy, too busy to get into trouble. When king David took a day off, he ended up in bed with another man's wife. An idle mind is truly the Devil's workshop. I am a sinner as much as anybody, but I try to stay busy to keep my mind preoccupied with something good, my ministry, or my music.

Always Have A Pure Heart...

I Peter 1:22, “Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto
unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently.”

I don't know about you, but I want to have a pure heart toward God and truth. I am disgusted when I hear a pastor talk about the importance of truth, while he sanctions a dozen Bible versions, and supports multiple preachers who preach drastically different plans of salvation. I mean, any pastor who is okay with BOTH Pastor Curtis Hutson and Dr. John MacArthur has issues, because they cannot both be right on the Gospel. Dr. Curtis Hutson says salvation will cost you NOTHING; but Dr. John MacArthur says salvation will COST YOU EVERYTHING!!! I tell you that Pastor Hutson is 100% correct, that is, salvation will cost you NOTHING!!! Salvation cost Jesus everything, which is why we trust in Him alone for eternal life.

Isaiah 35:4, “Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.”

The world is going to Hell 90 mph, you better jump into the arms of Jesus, while you've got a chance!”
—by Pastor Danny Castle, a powerful quote from the YouTube sermon titled, THE END TIMES PASTOR!

The King James Bible IS Inspired!

“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])

As one liberal theologian pointed out in his review of Harold Lindsell’s, The Battle for the Bible, the only real difference between the conservative and liberal positions on the Bible is that the conservatives say the Bible USED TO BE inspired and inerrant, whereas the liberal says it NEVER WAS inspired or inerrant. BOTH positions agree that the Bible IS NOT NOW inspired or inerrant.

As brother Daryl Coats so aptly says in his article The Two Lies: "If the Bible was inspired only in the original manuscripts, no one in the entire history of the world has ever had an inspired Bible. The original autographs of Job and the books of Moses had disappeared more than a thousand years before the first book of the New Testament was written, so no one has ever owned a complete Bible made up of the 'divine originals.' Nor, has anyone ever owned a complete New Testament made up of 'inspired originals,' because the originals were distributed among more than a dozen individuals and local churches."


Our churches are cursed today by pastors who are tolerant of multiple Bible versions and multiple ways to be saved. It is apostasy! Someone is very wrong. If Paul Washer is right, than Pastor Steven Anderson is wrong. If John MacArthur is right, than Dr. Jack Hyles was wrong. If Billy Graham was right, then Harry Ironside was wrong. They cannot all be right! Their teachings are by far, not a matter of mere semantics, saying things a little differently but having the same ideas. No way! Not a chance!

One pathetic Baptist pastor on Guam (a shameful Bob Jones University graduate) denied my request to attend his church's services. His excuse was that our philosophies of ministry are miles apart. Is that what you call that bullcrap? Is that the new labeling for apostasy? Is that what you call betraying the Word of God, selling Christianity down the river, and pulling on the same rope as the Devil? What a loser! The truth is that he and his accomplices are dropping the ball for God, spiritual failures, who merely collect a paycheck and parasite off the work of God. The only reward they will ever receive from God is their sorry earthly paycheck, because they are NOT pure of heart; they are corrupted, for sale, bought off, compromised, in bed with Bob Jones University committing spiritual whoredom with hundreds of modern Bible perversions.

Whereas God only authored ONE BOOK (which I believe to be the inspired King James Bible), Bob Jones University and their thousands of impure graduates support HUNDREDS of English Bible versions. I dare you to put one of them on the spot and ask them which English versions are corrupt. Usually they haven't a clue, because they couldn't care less, because they are NOT pure of heart. Matthew 5:8, “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.” A pure heart ALWAYS lead a man to the truth! I didn't say a sincere heart, nor a kind heart, but a pure heart! Proverbs 14:12, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

Dr. Jack Hyles had a pure heart, which is why he came over to the King James Bible only position around the early 1980's. Sadly, Bob Jones University is drowning in mediocrity and sinful compromise. For awhile the Sword of the Lord started selling the Alexandrian Bible versions while Dr. Curtis Hutson was there (Brother Hutson sadly joined the board of the New King James Bible), but praise God for Dr. Shelton Smith who brought the Sword back to a King James Bible only position. Thank God for Dr. Smith! We are at spiritual war folks, and the Devil is winning! Calvinism is NOT the Gospel, but it has crept into more than half of Baptist churches today, damning the souls of millions of people to the Lake of Fire!!!

It is unimaginable that today's churches are so gullible, naive and stupid, that they would actually sanction hundreds of English Bible versions. Hey, if you support even one of the Westcott and Hort produced Bible translations, you are guilty of supporting them all. For some idiot minister to claim that he doesn't support all of the English Alexandrian translations, while supporting even one of them, is the height of ignorance and moronic thinking! A man with a pure heart knows that something is very amiss about having two conflicting Bible versions. The man with two watches never knows what time it is! Likewise, the man with two Bible versions doesn't know what the truth is!

Moreover, any person with a pure heart can blatantly see that the modern Bible versions are being secularized to weaken the authority of God's Word, to attack the deity of Jesus, to obliterate the Godhead, and diminish the preeminence of Christ. The apostate Bob Jones crowd literally get upset, snarling their lips, looking down with contempt upon truth-tellers like me, who expose them for their making light of the verbal inspiration of the Holy Bible. The churches are going to hell in a wheelbarrow, and Bob Jones College and their alumni are selling spiritual popcorn, providing music and cheering the Devil's Bible-corrupting crowd.

There is nothing in this world more important than being PURE OF HEART in serving God. The Lord sees right through the ecumenical phonies. God sees our heart. He knows who really cares, and who is just making a living, compliments of God's people. God sees who labors diligently (like me) and receives no salary; and He sees those full-time religious employees (the Bob Jones crowd at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam), who make a lucrative lifestyle parasiting off the tithes from God's people. You'd think that they would at least be worthy of the money, instead of opening the door for Satan to come into the church. I mean, what do the churches pay these horrible pastors to do? They bring in false prophets like Ravi Zacharias and Ray Comfort, while shunning truth-tellers like me away. Why is it that Harvest Baptist Church has no problem inviting multimillionaire preachers to speak to their church, but I would do it for FREE, and they shun me away as a pest???? They love lies, but not truth!!! I have a pure heart, like God, and they don't at “Harvest Baptist Church.” It is that simple. God will not use any person who is not pure of heart, which always begins with humility.

“Now you say, 'Brother Hyles, you make an issue.' You dead sure better know I'll make an issue!” BATTLE OF THE AGES (MP3, Dr. Jack Hyles, “The King James Bible crowd is going to come out on top!”)
