Bible Faith Versus The Demonic Faith Of Marty Herron
by David J. Stewart | June 2021
Pastor Marty Herron has my blood on his hands. I lost Kris Hurlburt as my wife. I KNOW she would have married me, if it weren't for the hatred, rejection of Bible truth, and prejudice of Pastor Herron against me from 2014 to 2018, while he was the senior pastor of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. I curse that man in the name of Jesus, because I told THE TRUTH and was persecuted for it at Harvest! I literally pleaded three times with Pastor Herron in 2017 to please allow me to return to church services at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, but Pastor Herron verbatim told me to “Go elsewhere.” I had nowhere to go and haven't attended church since 2014. I couldn't have been more apologetic, kind and humble, but they killed the prophet.
I love Pastor Herron deep in my heart, but there's not a day that has gone by since 2017 that I haven't prayed for God to avenge me of what he did to me, costing me Kristen as my wife. God will treacherously deal with Herron for his wickedness, for the way he treacherously dealt with me as a hurting man in need of Harvest's love and help to get my life back together. Pastor Herron threw me under the bus and left me for dead. My heart has been crushed ever since, having no wife or church family. I did nothing wrong! I do not hate Pastor Herron, but I want to be avenged by God so much, which is my biblical right (Romans 12:19-21).
Kindly said, I absolutely do not think Marty Herron or anyone in the Bob Jones University camp is saved. The stench of their theological ignorance and proudful arrogance reaches to Heaven's gates. Their blood be upon their own heads (Matthew 7:21-23; Luke 13:23-24; Galatians 1:6-9, 3:1-3, 5:4, 6:7). They are all guilty of perverting God's grace and preaching another gospel. That means they are all going to Hell. They will get their just reward!
Dear reader, the Bible meaning of “faith” is that you simply get out of the way (cease from your own labors, works) and REST in Jesus Christ. Hebrews 4:10-11, “For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.” Bible faith means ceasing from your own works and resting in Christ. That means you DON'T have to turn away from your sinning to be saved, because that would be works.
This Is Why America Is Going To Hell!
In sharp contrast to the inspired King James Bible, the damnable doctrine of devils preached by Marty Herron and the Bob Jones crowd is VERY different. According to the Bob Jones camp (as I will prove to you in a moment), “faith” means something quite different, sharing the same perverse understanding as the Jehovah's Witness, Mormon and Seventh-Day Adventist cults. The Bob Jones camp view faith as living a lifestyle that proves the genuineness of the reality of your faith. That is a works based false plan of salvation. The true Gospel always points you to CHRIST; a false gospel always points to YOU. Any pastor or Bible college professor who tells you that YOU must reform (turn away from your sin) to be saved is preaching another gospel. Jesus came to save men from their sins, not demand that they reform to be saved.
If you take a look at BJU's Statement of Faith, they falsely claim to believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. But that is a fallacy, as I will show you. Please read the following quote:
...salvation is possible only through Christ's ransom sacrifice and that individuals cannot be saved until they repent of their sins and call on the name of Jehovah. Salvation is described as a free gift from God, but is said to be unattainable without good works that are prompted by faith. [source]
Do you know whom the preceding doctrinal quote refers to? It isn't Harvest Baptist Church, but they teach the same garbage. It isn't Bob Jones University, but they teach the same junk theology. You're going to be shocked. It refers to the Jehovah's Witnesses and what they believe!!! It is a quote from Wikipedia about the Jehovah's Witnesses. Oh my! Dear reader, if you believe Lordship Salvation, you are in the same sinking boat as the hellbound Jehovah's Witnesses. Think about that!
Let's dig deeper. Here is a quote directly from the Jehovah's Witness' official website:
The Bible shows that you must have works, or acts of obedience, to prove that your faith is alive. (James 2:24, 26) However, this does not mean that you can earn salvation. It is “God’s gift” based on his “undeserved kindness,” or “grace.”—Ephesians 2:8, 9; King James Version. [emphasis added]
Do you see the doublespeak? JW's speak of salvation by grace while simultaneously requiring works to prove the genuineness of your faith. That is the same Satanic garbage taught at Bob Jones University today. Now take a look at Bob Jones University's (BJU) horrifying theology for yourself...
“For the real reality of the genuineness of your faith is that you are faithful to run the race!” —Dr. Steve Pettit (“What Does It Mean To Run 'The Race'?” - 22:44)
Dear reader, salvation is a free gift, which does NOT require any effort on your part to validate or prove that your faith is real. Faith is faith. Jesus said even the smallest amount of faith moves mountains. All the faith you need to be saved is JUST ENOUGH to believe. You need just enough faith to obey the Gospel, which requires that you simply BELIEVE IT!!! Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” If you have JUST ENOUGH faith to call (trust) upon the name of the Lord, you will be saved immediately, irrevocably and eternally. You have God's promise on it! I love this quote by Pastor Shelton Smith of the Sword Of The Lord...
“Salvation is not our doing, but it is something that the Lord does. We put our trust in Christ, He is the One that saves us. And again I repeat: He rescues us, He ransoms us, He redeems us, He regenerates us. All of that we find out, simply by reading the Bible.” —Pastor Sheldon Smith, Making A Difference radio broadcast; May 14, 2021; 'The Distinguishing Difference in the Christian Life - Part 10'
Dear friend, I am just a lowly sinner saved by grace. I do not hate Pastor Marty Herron, but that horrible man ruined my life. It is because of Pastor Herron that Kristen Hurlburt didn't marry me, because I wasn't allowed to come back to church. Pastor Herron always got his associate pastor, Joe Hansen, to do his dirty work. Pastor Herron had Joe Hansen email me to get rid of me. Joe literally told me that I couldn't come back to Harvest, because it would make Kristen feel uncomfortable. What kind of Baptist church refuses to allow a hurting man to attend church because he loves someone? What dirty bastards, all of them! This is the ungodly Bob Jones University crowd. In a church of several hundred people, I was told that I couldn't come back to church, because it would make the woman I loved feel awkward. That is sick!
I pray for God to speedily avenge me of Harvest's wicked pastors, who have denied me a church family since 2014 to 2021. My blood, depression, loss of the woman I would have married, broken heart and inexplicable emotional pain be upon their heads! I know as sure as I am saved that Kris would have married me. Anybody who says different is either a liar or woefully naive. I know that Kristen loved me, and I loved her, but I was punished for TELLING THE TRUTH. 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 Lordship Salvation is a perversion of grace, then Marty Herron, Steve Pettit, John MacArthur and the whole rotten Bob Jones camp will burn in Hell forever (Matthew 7:21-23). And if Lordship Salvation is the truth, then Pastor Curtis Hutson and Pastor Jack Hyles are burning in Hell right now, and I will join them in time. You either must turn away from sinful behavior to be saved, or you don't have to give up one sin to be saved, but it absolutely cannot be both (Romans 11:6). Someone is WRONG!!! Since the Bible plainly calls eternal life a “free gift” (Romans 5:15-18, 6:23), you can figure out for yourself who is WRONG! If YOU have to give up YOUR sinning to be saved, then salvation is a trade, an exchange, but could not be a genuine gift.
I wouldn't want to be in Marty Herron's shoes when he stands before God in eternity. Hebrews 10:31, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” I have dedicated the remaining years of my life and ministry to preach against the wickedness of the Bob Jones crowd. Losing Kris sealed their fate. To Hell with all of them! Sadly, none of them give a damn, because I am just a voice crying in the wilderness of cyberspace, while they prosper in their idolatry and filthy lucre of 6-digit salaries. The Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is a cesspool of iniquity, utterly destroyed because of Pastor Herron's ungodly influence and the toxic tentacles of Bob Jones University which have them spellbound in deception. My faithful Bible preaching, and inexplicable suffering inflicted by the accursed Bob Jones crowd, will be avenged one day by God, because I have told THE TRUTH.
I told THE TRUTH about their damnable doctrine of Lordship Salvation, and their damnable doctrine of Wrong Repentance (aka, turn from your sin to be saved), and their damnable Devil's Bible revisions. I was just being a true friend. A friend helps a friend to see. Dr. Tom Ferrell said that while a guest speaker at Harvest, and he is 100% right. But for befriending Harvest's pastors with THE TRUTH, they immediately counted me their “enemy.” The Apostle Paul had the same unpleasant experience with the churches of Galatia. Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” So we see that there is a simple Bible faith, which is to just rest in Christ, and then there is something entirely different where YOU are required to run the race (live the Christian life) as a means of proving the genuineness of the reality of your faith.
The Gift Of Eternal Life Is Wrapped In The Wonderful Package Of Jesus
