The Corrupt First Baptist Church Of El Paso, Texas

Galatians 1:6-9, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”

I have been considering what city I would like to relocate from Guam to in the United States. I am considering El Paso, Texas. I was searching for a good Bible-believing Baptist church to attend. The First Baptist Church of El Paso caught my attention, but sadly they preach another gospel that is totally perverted...

SALVATION

Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. [emphasis added]

Do you see the woeful contradiction? In one statement they say that you cannot be saved by works, but then they follow two sentences later by saying that without works you cannot be saved! That is theologically crazy! Clearly they are ADDING works to faith, corrupting the simplicity that is in Christ (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4). 

Dear reader, where does the Holy Bible teach that a person must “TURN FROM OUR SELF-WILLED LIFE” to receive God's free gift of eternal life? You'll never find any such garbage in the inspired King James Bible. In fact, you DON'T have to turn away from your self-willed life to be saved. Eternal life is a free gift from God (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9). If you were required to turn away from ruling your own life, then salvation would be a REWARD, not a GIFT. Shame on the First Baptist Church of El Paso for perverting the Gospel.

Here is the Gospel as defined in the Word of God:
1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
Huh, there's no mention of turning away from your self-ruled life. The First Baptist Church of El Paso are guilty of preaching the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation. We find this foolish group in Matthew 7:21-23, who followed Jesus calling Him “Lord, Lord,” but Jesus said He never knew them!!! Please don't follow the pastors and congregation of the First Baptist Church of El Paso into the Lake of Fire. The way to be saved is by faith alone in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ. Acts 16:30-31, “And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Truth Resistance Is As Deadly As Insulin Resistance

Revelation 3:1-2, “And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.” Jude 1:3, “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.”

Insulin resistance kills three times more Americans than cancer does! What is insulin? What is insulin resistance? Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that regulates blood sugar (glucose). Eating carbohydrates (rice, bread, pasta potatoes) all gets converted in the body to glucose. Plus the sugar you eat gets turned into glucose. Fructose is sugar from fruit. Sucrose is sugar from sugar cane. Too much sugar is toxic for your body!

Americans as a whole eat a horrible diet. Only 5% of Americans eat the required amount of fiber each day. The average American eats 20 times more red meat than they should. Meat is high in protein but contains ZERO fiber. Beans are much better, having both protein and fiber! Consequently, 40% of Americans are obese. Here is some information explaining insulin and insulin resistance:
Insulin is a hormone that plays a big role in metabolism, which is all about how our body converts digested food into energy.

Let’s start from the beginning:

Our digestive track breaks down the carbohydrates we eat into glucose as well as other simple sugars. Our bloodstream then delivers glucose across the body,  for our cells to use as energy.

That’s where insulin comes in.
It’s a hormone produced by our pancreas, to help blood glucose enter into the cells. You can think of it as the key that opens the cell’s door, allowing blood glucose to enter.

‘Insulin resistance’ simply means that the cells of our body have slowly stopped responding to insulin – it can no longer open the door.

Although cells have other ways of taking up glucose, this definitely causes an imbalance in our blood glucose levels, and even impairs the functions of cells. 

The condition of ‘insulin resistance’ is known as type-II diabetes mellitus. This is different from type-I diabetes mellitus, where the body cannot make insulin in the first place, making it necessary for the patient to inject insulin into their blood.

SOURCE: A Simple Explanation: Insulin Resistance And It's Effects 

Likewise, churches today are obese with money, comfort and luxury. The New Testament church didn't have heating and air conditioning. As far as we know they didn't even have a building. How does that compare to churches today with their padded pews, stained-glass windows, lush carpeting, annual trips to the Holy Land, exorbitant salaries for pastors (2 to 3 times what the average U.S. worker gets paid annually), et cetera? These spiritually obese churches have become truth resistant, just as an insulin resistant sick person.


Insulin Resistance (Diabetes) Causes All Sorts Of Health Problems

Once a person's body has become resistant to insulin, meaning that the muscles no longer burn sugar as energy, really bad things start to happen. Blood sugar levels spike. Blood pressure spikes. Nerves start to die in the feet, toes and extremities of the body. You can go blind, have a stroke, have kidney failure, and a bunch of other awful things. The cure is simply to lose weight, eat heathy, exercise and take control of your health. Insulin resistance is also known as diabetes, commonly known as: “The Silent Killer” (because many people don't even know they have it until too late). Diabetes is also called: “The Sitting Disease,” because America's sedentary lifestyle is the major cause of insulin resistance, and bad diet.

The same horrible thing has happened to the churches today. Churches have become truth resistant. Pastors and congregations no longer respond to the Holy Spirit, failing to absorb truth; just like muscles which no longer respond to insulin, failing to absorb glucose (body sugar). As a consequence of not being able to absorb truth, because pastor's hearts are not right with God today, all sorts of really bad things are happening in the churches. 

This is why the deadly disease of Lordship Salvation is so prevalent in churches nowadays (in the absence of truth), which is a perversion of God's grace. Some people mockingly refer to the simplicity that is in Christ (the free grace Gospel) as “cheap grace, but friend, grace does not come cheap, it cost Jesus His life. God's grace is free to you and me, but it cost God His only begotten Son (John 3:16), and it cost Jesus His very life (2nd Corinthians 5:21), so we could be free and escape eternity burning in the Lake of Fire (Romans 5:9). 

It is resistance to THE TRUTH why so many churches today have been infected with literally  hundreds of corrupt English Bible revisions, which attack the deity of Jesus, pervert the meaning of repentance, change of plan of salvation, remove the Godhead (Trinity), eliminate complete passages of Scripture, and diminish the preeminence of Christ. Truth resistance is deadly, and your church has probably already been diseased by this Silent Killer!!!

Since I am a Baptist, I see the apostate condition in most Baptist churches today, and it grieves me. Baptist churches everywhere are dying. Revelation 3:1-2, “And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.” The Lord exhorted the church at Sardis to strengthen the things that were READY TO DIE. This Scripture passage is so applicable today in America. Once a church is so far gone that they preach another gospel of misunderstood repentance (aka, turn away from your sin to be saved), they are now a religious cult, not a church. It is corrupt theological institutions; such as, Bob Jones University and Moody Bible Institute, that are promoting a counterfeit plan of salvation through thousands of their corrupt graduates.

When a hardened person, like the Bob Jones camp today, become truth resistance, all kinds of spiritual diseases and problems ensue. BJU and HBC are infected with Lordship Salvation, Misunderstood Repentance and the Devil's False Bibles.


Pastors Are Killing The Churches By Resisting The Truth

The following information appeared in a Pew Forum article on October 17, 2019. The article is titled: 'In U.S., Decline Of Christianity Continues At Rapid Pace':
More than eight-in-ten members of the Silent Generation (those born between 1928 and 1945) describe themselves as Christians (84%), as do three-quarters of Baby Boomers (76%). In stark contrast, only half of Millennials (49%) describe themselves as Christians; four-in-ten are religious “nones,” and one-in-ten Millennials identify with non-Christian faiths... The data suggests that Christians are declining not just as a share of the U.S. adult population, but also in absolute numbers. [emphasis added] —SOURCE
I was saddened when I learned that Kanye performed a dance concert at Joel Osteen's so-called "church" in Houston, Texas in 2019. Check out this giant All Seeing Eye which was displayed when Kanye performed there. This is their way of bragging that the Luciferian elite have infiltrated the churches with the New World Order. I-chabod (the glory of the Lord is departed) is written over the door of today's churches!!! Joel Osteen is a false teacher. Evangelist Michael P. Bowen refutes Pastor Osteen's false gospel in his helpful book titled: "I NEVER KNEW YOU," chapter 2, page 19.

Jeremiah 23:1-2, “Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture!  saith the LORD. Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD.” The churches are pathetic today. Formalism is the enemy of the Gospel. I have been in Catholic churches, which feel like spiritual morgues. That is because it is a formalized religion, but the blessed Holy Spirit of God is not present. God is love (1st John 4:8. God cares (1st Peter 5:7). God is faithful (1st Corinthians 1:9). 

Ephesians 4:30-32 teaches us as believers to be loving, forgiving, kind and tenderhearted one toward another. Yet, we find coldness, covetousness, hypocrisy, a sinful respect of persons, social cliques and a woeful lack of compassion for hurting people in many churches today. Something is very wrong! It is simply because the churches have fallen into the rut of going through the religious motions, not walking close to God, which produces the fruit of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-25).


A Preacher Who Walks With God Will Hate Every False Way

A person who walks with God, by abiding in the Word of God, will hate every false way. Psalm 119:104, "Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way." I hate the New World Order (controlled by the Illuminati). I call them the "Luciferian elite." Alex Jones calls them "Globalists." Commander William Guy Carr refers to the NWO in his books as: "The World Revolutionary Movement." Carr refers to the Illuminati as "Satanists." These are all accurate terms. Satan is "the god of this world" (2nd Corinthians 4:4b). The average preacher doesn't study the NWO, doesn't care at all about it, and won't warn people about it. 

Consequently, tens of thousands of churches are embracing the Devil's NWO Bible versions. As any good coach will tell you: "The best defense is a strong offense!" The churches are biting hook, line and sinker into the NWO because their pastors have failed to educate them. Humbly said, it is because I love God and the inspired Word of God that I hate every false way, as the Bible says in Psalm 119:104. Sadly, over 95% of preachers and pastors today don't seem to hate anything, except not getting paid. Tragically, as I showed you earlier, the United States is departing from faith in God at a rapid pace. Pastors and churches are much to blame, for not strengthening the things that remain, for not contending for the faith!


The Way To Keep Living Is To Fight Dying

The churches are dying because pastors aren't standing. I am hated and despised by local churches on Guam where I live, and all across the world, because I preach THE TRUTH. The shameful Harvest Baptist Church of Guam, where I was welcomed for one year in 2014, axed me like a turkey on Thanksgiving Day when I befriended them with THE TRUTH (as a true friend does). Since late 2014, I have been banned from even attending church, for simply showing them that Lordship Salvation is not the Gospel.

Despite my love for them, Harvest's wicked pastors drove me out of their social club in 2014, and have sinfully ostracized me ever since. Neither Pastor Marty Herron nor Pastor Gary Walton would allow me to come back to church. Dear friend, the churches are changing because they aren't fighting not to change. It's like exercising, eating healthy and walking. If a person doesn't fight to stay healthy, we'll get fat and let our health go (now I'm preaching to myself...lol). I have been eating healthier, walking more and I've lost some weight. I feel good, but it is a constant battle. You see, you have to STRENTHEN THE THINGS THAT ARE READY TO DIE to preserve them.

The same is true of churches. By going alone with the apostasy everywhere today, and not fighting to stay healthy, the churches are all truth resistant (like insulin resistance), becoming obese with heresy and spiritual disease, dying prematurely. That's a great comparison of what is happening to churches today. To God be the glory. Our American churches have become so spoiled rotten, disgustingly fat, financially prosperous and weighed down with social clubs and high society types, that they are as a diseased body with type II diabetes. Churches today are having their bus ministry and weekly soulwinning program amputated. They are truth resistant. You can inject high doses of truth into the average church today, and it won't make a difference, they just laugh at you! 

I'm talking about the Bob Jones crowd. I'm talking about Pastor Marty Herron in Iowa at the Faith Baptist Bible College And Theological Seminary. I'm talking about Pastor John MacArthur, who is an alumni of BJU. I'm talking about Harvest Baptist Church of Guam, a dried up barren social club who emphasize the education business at the neglect of the Master's business of soulwinning. These names and institutions have all become truth resistant! You cannot help them, because they are subverted of themselves. Titus 3:10-11, “A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.” The Lordship Salvation crowed sinneth. The wrong repentance crowd sinneth. The false Bibles crowd sinneth. They are subverted of themselves. They are TRUTH RESISTANT!!!


The Truth Resistant Harvest Baptist Church Of Guam

I happily attended the Harvest Baptist Church of Guam for a year in 2014. I saw that the church was infected with false Bibles, misunderstood repentance and Lordship Salvation. I gave them an injection of THE TRUTH, as a true friend does. I purchased several hundred dollars of books with my own money for the pastors, to help them to see. I was humble about it. I prayed and asked God to soften their hearts. But once the injection of THE TRUTH was given, I realized quickly that they are TRUTH RESISTANT at Harvest. 

Harvest Baptist Church (HBC) of Guam has spiritual type II diabetes. They have grown so fat with success, money and popularity in the geographical region, known as: The Federated States Of Micronesia, that they are sickly. Harvest's feet and toes are infected, rotting away. Their youth are rotting away with another gospel of Lordship Salvation. Harvest's spiritual glucose level is 400, using 24 different Bible versions among their sickly congregation. I am hated for caring enough to tell them THE TRUTH. Harvest's pastors are infected the most, indifferent as can be, totally truth resistant. You could inject unit after unit of TRUTH into Harvest Baptist Church Guam all day long, and their diseased church body would merely laugh at you, as they laugh at me, literally banning and ostracizing me from attending church since 2014. Harvest is as a dying man with stage 4 Type II diabetes.

The saddest thing is that although Harvest's diseased condition is totally curable, they would rather continue being infected, until every limb has rotted away, and all life is gone. Harvest's shameful pastors are arrogant sinful man, who are as fools who resent being told they are wrong. So they continue leading people into Hell by promoting Dr. Steve Pettit (president of Bob Jones University) who preaches another gospel of partial faith in Christ plus works. HBC sends people to Hell by preaching Lordship Salvation. HBC sends people to Hell by preaching a misunderstood repentance that demands a person “turn away from sin” to go to Heaven. You simply cannot give THE TRUTH to most Baptist churches today, because they have become truth resistant. This is a consequence of the sinful human heart.

Answering the question: “Why Is It So Hard To Convince People That They're Wrong?,” Pam Rose, a clinical psychologist, says:
Some people simply don’t “believe in” evidence. They believe what they want to believe for any number of reasons: to shore up a self-image, to avoid diligence and study, to support a whole system of non-evident beliefs, to remain consistent in their emotional attachments. They listen for support for their existing framework and reject all else: it’s staggering I know but some of us prefer to “like” an idea rather than support it with evidence.

Another huge step is required to convince someone they’re wrong or from a more positive perspective, to teach someone something. The other must agree to be taught by you, psychologically. From grade school teachers to preachers, coaches to politicians, parents (especially of teens!) and between friends, this ephemeral permission- to- learn- from lies between you with your evidence and your potential learner.

With some it seems once they’ve granted the permission to another to teach them, they may refuse to alter that permission despite massive evidence to the lack of fitness of that one to teach anyone anything. They may call it loyalty or commitment; I call it blindly following.

PBS show from years ago focused on a German ship rescuing German civilians from coastal areas of Europe to return them to Germany towards the end of WWII. It sank with 9,000 people, exceeding the Titanic always reputed to be the most souls lost. My good friend, a teacher could not/would not believe me. I was watching it as we spoke by phone and she sputtered, “everybody knows…..I’ve never heard of such a thing…..that’s just not true….etc. I said “It’s here before my eyes, don’t you believe PBS? I just saw full details about it” but she was adamant. I couldn’t change her mind but she changed mine about her. SOURCE
Pam is so right! These ungodly pastors today absolutely refuse to be taught by another preacher who resides outside of their particular religious clique. Just like that foolish teacher who refused to believe that 9,000 people died when the Wilhelm Gustloff ship sank in January of 1945, so also do today's foolish Bob Jones University graduates refuse to believe that God only authored ONE BIBLE (not 2, or 39, or 900). They refuse to believe that Lordship Salvation is a false plan of salvation. They refuse to believe that you don't have to forsake a lifestyle of sinful behavior to be saved. 

Yet, these things are all true. You don't have to stop any sin to be saved. You don't have to follow Jesus as your “Lord” (Boss), surrendering all to Him to receive God's free gift of eternal life. That is why the Bible calls eternal life “a gift,” because you can have it without working or qualifying for it. Literally, Steve Pettit teaches that Heaven is an “award” that you must “qualify” for. That is as Satanic as anything I have ever heard preached from a pulpit. Pettit said that to 2,700 students and faculty at Bob Jones University during chapel on January 26, 2015.

Pastor John MacArthur errantly preaches that salvation is “an exchange for all that you are for all that Jesus is. Folks, it cannot be a gift then! Either salvation is a trade, an equal exchange of some sorts, or else it is a free gift that you simply receive by faith alone (Galatians 3:26), but it cannot be both. I am saddened and frustrated that so many pastors today refuse to heed THE TRUTH. I am irritated to know that the majority of Baptist pastors have nothing to say in rebuke of Evangelist Ken Ham's false theology, which demands that a person repent of your sin to be saved. That is false religion! If a man must cease from fornicating, getting drunk and stealing from his employer to be saved, or prove that he is saved, then eternal life cannot be justly called a free gift” (Romans 5:15-18).

Is your pastor and congregation TRUTH RESISTANT? If so, your church has been infected with sinful error and pride. There's just something in our sinful human nature that hates being wrong. Carnally-minded people would rather die than admit they were wrong! I used to tell people to “invite Jesus into your heart” to be saved, but I was very wrong. Dr. Oliver B. Greene used to preach that junk theology and misled a bunch of people. No, you don't invite Jesus into your heart to be saved, you simply “believe on Him as the Bible says. John 6:47, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. You cannot show me even one verse that teaches to invite Jesus into your heart. Right doctrine matters!

Popular Myths About Hell And The Devil Debunked

Job 1:6-7, “Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.” 1st Peter 5:8-9, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.” Revelation 2:13, “I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

Hollywood movies often portray the Devil as tormenting people in Hell, but nothing could be further from the truth. The typical depiction of the Devil is as a red creature with a tail, a sinister smirk on his face, having two horns on his head, and holding a big pitchfork to torment his prey. The Holy Bible describes Satan very differently in 2nd Corinthians 11:13-15, “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” The Bible describes Satan as an imposter, an actor, who masquerades as as angel of light...


The Devil Is A Beautiful Liar!

So this is the first myth about the Devil, that he is some red guy with horns, having a tail, and carries a pitchfork. That is the world's idea of who the Devil is, and it is admittedly intriguing, but that is not how the Word of God describes him. Satan appears as a beautiful creature, an angel of God, a popular rock star! When the Antichrist comes, the world will love and follow him, because he will not appear in his true form. Half way into the Tribulation period, the Antichrist's true colors will appear (called 'The Abomination Of Desolation' - Matthew 24:15), when the False Prophet starts murdering anybody who refuses to bow down and worship the Beast (Revelation 13:15-18). The very core nature of the New World Order is deception. Revelation 12:9, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” I preach THE TRUTH so you won't be deceived.

The Devil Does Not Appear As The Devil

The Devil came to Eve in the form of a serpent, to deceive her. Do you know why Satan came as a serpent? The answer is simply because there were no other human beings at the time. If the Devil were to come to Eve today, he would come to her as a wicked person, who gives wicked advice (Psalms 1:1). When someone advises you to file for divorce, that is the Devil talking. When someone advises you to get even with someone, that is the Devil talking. When someone advises you to have an abortion, that is the Devil talking. When someone advises you to do anything wrong, that is the Devil talking. SHUT UP DEVIL!!!

Please don't forget this important truth. Evil often appears as good, intending to deceive it's victims. I could give you several dozen good examples. One example is the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden. Genesis 3:6, “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” Sound familiar? It sounds like the state governments, each time the individual states wanted to start a new state lottery. The states promise more money for education for the children. They promise lower taxes. But when they get their dirty lottery, the money gets stolen. Here's proof of what I just said!

The Devil Does Not State His True Intentions

Another example of how the Devil deceives are the gambling casinos. There has been substantial research done showing the phycological addiction often associated with gambling, and how casinos use this human weakness to prey upon their victims. If you read the preceding article at the link I provided, you learned that casinos use bright flashing lights and thrilling sounds to mesmerize their victims. Literally, by manipulating your desire for excitement, casinos make you feel like a winner while you're losing!!! The Devil is a beautiful liar!

Dear reader, that is exactly how the Devil works all the time! While a young woman is throwing away her virginity, giving her most prized possession (her innocence) to some lustful dog to whom she is not legally married, through his deceptive charm he makes her feel like she is a winner, only to find out shortly thereafter that she was just another fire-hydrant for a dog. Young ladies, never have carnal knowledge (intimacy) with a male until you are legally married. Most males are immoral nowadays, having being brought up with the Playboy American mindset, which is very sinful (Hebrews 13:4). You cannot go wrong doing things God's way. I'd rather die an old maid, than to live the rest of my life with regret that I gave my virginity to some pig that used me. If you wait until you are legally married, you cannot be burned. And I don't mean waiting until some guy promises to marry you, that means nothing. I mean wait until you are legally declared man and wife. The Devil is a beautiful liar!

The serpent came to Eve instead of Adam, knowing that she was the weaker vessel (1st Peter 3:7). The serpent lied to Eve, only telling her what she wanted to hear (1st Timothy 2:14). The Devil convinced Eve that eating the forbidden fruit would be a win-win situation. It turned out to be the worst and most costly bad decision she ever made. Sound familiar? We've all been conned and made bad decisions that we regret. From shady used car salesman to crooked greedy lawyers, dishonest people will not tell you the whole truth. We've all been taken advantage of by lying politicians, shady business advertisements and thieving car rental agencies. The United States has become one of the most greedy and dishonest cultures in history.

Dear friend, the Devil is not in Hell, he is roaming the earth. Job 1:6-7, “Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.” The Bible calls Satan “The Prince Of The Power Of The Air” in Ephesians 2:2Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” The Devil is a spirit. Could the “power of the air” refer to the incredible power of THE MEDIA? Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982) used to say that next to the Word of God, the media is the most powerful force in the world. I fully agree! The U.S. newsmedia has the power to accomplish what an invading enemy army could not do!

Hell Is A Literal Place, Not Just A Parable

Human beings are not bodies with a spirit; but rather, a spirit with a body. Singer Sting of the band 'The Police' sang it right: “We are spirits in the material world.” That is accurate biblically. When our body can no longer provide housing for the spirit God gave to us at birth, our spirit returns to God Who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7). Our days on earth are numbered. Dear friend, the Devil is not in Hell, but he WILL BE down the road, and so will you if you die in your sins. Matthew 25:41, “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:” 

Hell is a literal place, which burns with fire and brimstone (Revelation 21:8), which was originally prepared only for the Devil and his angels (i.e., Lucifer and the demons). It is clear to me from the Scripture that Hell (Hades) is located in the heart of the earth (Matthew 12:40). Scientists in 2021 still cannot determine if the center of the earth is composed of liquid rock, or if it is solid. They do know that the inner mantle is molten rock (lava). God never wanted one human being to go to Hell. But when Adam sinned, he opened the floodgate of sin and death upon the world (Romans 5:12). 

Consequently, humans do go to Hell now, anyone who dies in their sins (Luke 16:19-31; John 8:24; 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9; Jude 1:7; Revelation 20:11-15; 21:8). Some Bible teachers say that the story Jesus told about the Rich Man And Lazarus in Luke 16:19-31 is a only a parable. Mormons, Seventh-Day Adventists and Jehovah's Witnesses all three agree that this story is only a fictitious parable. However, we know that is a true story for a few reasons:

  1. Jesus did not call it a parable (which He always did when telling one)
  2. The Lord used proper nouns (Abraham and Lazarus), which He never did when telling a parable.
  3. Jesus didn't explain afterwards what the story meant, which He always did when telling a parable, so the hearers could understand.
  4. In John 14:2b Jesus said, “if it were not so, I would have told you.” It would have been very deceptive and misleading for the Lord to describe a literally place of Hell, fire and eternal torment, if such a place did not really exist.
  5. Other passages of Scripture support the reality of a physical place called Hell. Matthew 10:28, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

Yet, I am amazed to hear Bible teachers; such as I heard in a Wednesday night Bible study at the Harvest Baptist Church of Guam, that Luke 16:19-31 is merely only an untrue parable. If we are to take the Bible at face value, and I certainly do, then we must accept this story as 100% true. It actually happened! That is why Jesus mentioned actual names of real people.

The Devil Wants You To Do Your Will, Not His Will

Most people think that the Devil wants you to do his will. The truth is that Satan has no will for your life. The Devil couldn't care less about you, your loved ones, your friends, nor anybody else. Jesus warned that the thief (Satan) comes only to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10). The Devil wants you to do your own thing, which is sadly what most youth are doing today in America. A socking 16% of 'Generation Z' now identify as homosexuals. According to Pew Forum, Christianity is in rapid decline in America.

Infamous Satanist Anton LaVey's (1930-1997) is famous for authoring 'The Satanic Bible,' in which he teaches that it is okay to commit immorality, just so long as you don't hurt anybody else. Whoremonger, Hugh Hefner (1926-2017) shared such immoral warped views. But that is a woeful deception, because immorality always hurts other people, whether it be from an abortion, the further destroying of someone's soul by sinning, or the undermining of the integrity of society as a whole. 

The 20th century's most infamous Satanist, Aleister Crowley (1875-1947), is famous for his motto: “DO AS THOU WILT, SHALL BE THE WHOLE OF THE LAW.” This is the same degenerate life's philosophy as Hefner and LaVey. Since they all disregarded God's commandments, these men elevated themselves as God, adhering to a lowlife form of beastly morality that permitted anything that society tolerated. Dear friend, low living has a high price! Colossians 3:5-7, “Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.” 

It is not okay to live any way you and I choose, just so long as we think it doesn't hurt other people. What saith the Scripture? Ecclesiastes 12:13, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” If we are to live by faith as believers in Christ, then we must fear God and keep HIS COMMANDMENTS, not our own. To the same extent that Americans forsake the King James Bible, faith no longer exists, and all manner of wickedness follows.

The Devil Is Not In Hell Waiting For More Victims

The Devil romans the earth as a roaring lion, seeking his next victims. 1st Peter 5:8-9, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.” The Devil wont be the one to torment the dead in Hell, God will. 2nd Thessalonians 1:8, “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; God Himself will punish the lost.

Matthew 10:28, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Vengeance belongs to God alone. The Devil does not have the authority nor power to hurt anyone without God's permission. We know in the Scriptures that God DOES often allow the Devil to hurt the unsaved (Revelation 9:4). God protects His own, the saints. Psalm 34:7, “The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.The world gives the Devil too much credit. Satan cannot send anyone to Hell. Only God can put somebody in Hell, but He only sends those to Hell who choose to go there, by willfully rejecting the sacrifice of His only begotten Son on the cross for their sins (Philippians 3:9). To reject the free gift of God's grace deserves the penalty of eternal damnation. How can proud sinful men knowingly reject such a free gift rooted in the unmeasurable love of a holy God?

Perhaps the most interesting Scripture of all is found in Revelation 2:13, “I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.The Devil has his favorite seat in church. That is what we just read, “where Satan dwelleth,” in the church! If you don't believe that, please look at this creepy photo of Pastor Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church in 2017, when rapper Kanye West performed a dance concert for 70,000 church members...

All Seeing Eye At Joel Osteen's Corrupt Church

The above photo is a screen capture from a YouTube video of the 'Jesus Is King' church service. This is the Devil in the church!!! That All Seeing Eye they are displaying speaks loud and clear that Kanye West is of the Devil, and Satan has infiltrated this wicked church with the New World Order. You couldn't make this stuff up! Yet, 70,000 deceived people continue to attend Joel Osteen's truth-barren apostasy circus each week, selling their souls to Satan.

I just wanted to point out a few common myths about Hell and Satan in this blog. The Devil's greatest feat has been to convince the world that he doesn't really exist, but he does friend! SATAN IS REAL!!! Just look at all the senseless wars and mass killings over the past 200 years. The Bible attributes these evils to Lucifer (Isaiah 14:12-18). When Jesus returns at His Second Coming, Satan will be bound in chains in the Bottomless Pit for 1,000 years' (Revelation 20:6). This will be a period of peace like the world has never known, often called in theology: 'THE MILLENNIUM.' Jesus Himself will reign as King over the earth from the throne of David in Jerusalem, in the true and regathered nation of Israel. The raptured saints, and all those saints who didn't live through the Tribulation, will help Jesus reign (Revelation 20:6). The saints who do survive the Tribulation, will go into the Millennium with their earthly bodies, bearing children and living happy lives without the Devil to ruin everything.

God bless you dear reader. Thank you for following my ministry blog. I sure appreciate your continued interest. Kindest regards.

Preaching The Simplicity That Is In Christ

2nd Corinthians 11:1-4, “Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

The Bible is very clear what the Gospel is:

1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

The Gospel (meaning Good News) is three things:

  1. Christ died on the cross for our sins
  2. Christ was buried
  3. Christ physically resurrected from the dead after three days

As I do from time to time, I listened to 'UNSHACKLED' by Pacific Garden Mission today. As always, I was utterly disgusted by what I heard (besides the corny bad acting). All they kept saying is to “surrender” your life to God to be saved, which is wrong. They kept saying to receive Jesus as your Savior “and Lord to be saved, which is totally wrong. They kept saying to invite God into your life, surrender your will to live for Christ, and a bunch of other junk not taught in the Holy Bible. Tragically, UNSHACKLED preaches about a dozen different variations of the Gospel. If you doubt what I say, please continue reading.

Unfortunately, there are many FALSE PROPHETS today, like Pacific Garden Mission (PGM) in Chicago, who complicate 'The Gospel' in their UNSHACKLED radio series. Let's see how these false prophets make salvation very had. Hear for yourself and weep for their victims! I was saddened today as I listened to Pacific Garden Mission's popular radio program called: 'UNSHACKLED' (program #3589 - aired in 2020 - the Story of Debbie Brooks). In the episode, Debbie meets with a religious friend named Sharon, and they share this brief dialogue:
SHARON: Trusting Jesus is the only thing that can make a difference in my messed-up life.

DEBBIE: I keep hearing that in church, but I don't get it—how something that EASY can be a life-changer.

SHARON: Oh Debbie, it's not easy—believing in Jesus means repenting and asking forgiveness for all the old ways, and then GIVING THEM UP FOR GOOD. When you find the COURAGE TO DO THAT, He'll help you CHANGE YOUR LIFE. [emphasis added]

DEBBIE: Huh, well, I'll have to think about it.
BLASPHEMY!!! I cannot believe what I just heard, and that PGM sanctions this garbage theology! Sharon is telling Debbie that it is NOT EASY TO BE SAVED, because to be saved she says you MUST repent to give up all the old ways, GIVING THEM UP FOR GOOD! How is any of this a free gift from God? Dear reader, PGM are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. Everything that they put out to radio bears their ministry's name, which makes them 100% responsible for every bit of content!!! 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.”

My friend Curtis Smale (pronounced as in “snail) made these helpful Gospel videos...


If you watched the videos, then you heard Curtis say that of the 35 different churches he has visited over the past 5 years, NOT ONE OF THEM preaches the free grace Gospel without perverting it. The Devil has crept into the churches. The biggest culprit are today's apostate Bible colleges. Look at the Satanic garbage theology being taught at Bob Jones University today!!! Folks, Dr. Steve Pettit is not a born-again believer. If you think Mr. Pettit is saved, you're not! No man is saved who requires you to live a faithful Christian life to “qualify for the award of Heaven itself (those are his very terms). 

Dear reader, the only qualification for salvation is your sin that made it necessary!!! What do you mean that I must “qualify to merit the award” of Heaven? Please listen to me, Heaven is not an award, it is a free gift! All Pettit's talk of qualifying, by running and finishing the race to qualify to receive the award of Heaven, is of the Devil. Dr. Pettit doesn't even hit the ball within the ballpark of the Gospel. Go back and read 1st Corinthians 15:1-4. The only reason why anybody goes to Heaven is because God had to give it to us BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH. If God didn't give us eternal life, we couldn't have it! Salvation is of the Lord (Jonah 2:9). Here is a helpful sermon by Pastor Ralph 'Yankee' Arnold titled: 'REPEAL AND REPLACE'...


Repeal And Replace
(by Pastor Ralph 'Yankee' Arnold)

Dear reader, why cannot men leave the Gospel alone, keeping it simple the way God intended for it to be? John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” Jesus is the Door to eternal life. 1st John 5:20, “And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.JESUS IS GOD AND ETERNAL LIFE!!! So if you have Jesus, you have eternal life. I love how Dr. Bob Jones Sr. (1883-1968) explained it:

“God gives you eternal life when you take Him. Eternal life is wrapped up in Christ. 'He that hath the Son hath life.' There is just one difference between a Christian and a sinner. A Christian has Christ and a sinner does not have Him. That is the only difference. All you need is Jesus. It is all in Jesus! If you will take Him, He will blot out all your sins. If you take Him, He will give you a new nature. If you take Him, He will go with you along the journey of life. He will be with you when you are tempted. He will put arms of power around you and give you the victory. 'By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; not of works, lest any man should boast.” —Dr. Bob Jones Sr., “Things I Have Learned: Chapel Talks,” page 223; Bob Jones University Press, ©1945

That was so simply, beautifully and eloquently said by Dr. Bob Jones Sr., with no mention of turning away from your sin, surrendering your life to God, running the race faithfully until the end, qualifying for the award of Heaven, or exchanging all that you are for all that Jesus is to be saved. Literally, these latter requirements are the foolish things that we hear taught by John MacArthur, Marty Herron, Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron, Paul Washer, John Piper, Sam Horn, Gary Walton, Steve Pettit and countless other corrupters of the faith. No one is saved who requires more than faith alone to be saved.

In fact, you DON'T need to repent “of your sins to receive God's free gift. I am going to Heaven because I AM PERFECT! You read right, I am 100% perfect. You cannot get to Heaven by repenting of your sins, because you could never turn from all your sins. But you say, what do you mean you are perfect? The only way you can get to Heaven is by being absolutely 100% perfect. Since I cannot be perfect, I need a perfect Savior. Jesus is perfect! 2nd Corinthians 5:21, For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

What saith the Scripture? Philippians 3:9, “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:” Ah, there is the answer! Through faith alone in Jesus Christ, we are made the perfect righteousness of God. This is the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ (Romans 4:4-6). If you were to ask me to suggest a subject to study in the Bible, it would first be the Imputed Righteousness of God. That is how a broken humble sinner like me, with no righteousness of my own to offer God (Isaiah 64:6), can confidently claim and know that I am 100% perfect by God's imputed righteousness, which is by faith alone in Christ. By faith God imputed my sins to Christ on the cross, and imputed His righteousness to me. What a great gift!

Here is one of my favorite books: 'Except Ye Repent.' The book is authored by one of my favorite preachers, Dr. Harry Ironside (1876-1951):

  1. Repentance: Its Nature and Importance
  2. The Book of Repentance
  3. John's Baptism of Repentance
  4. Christ's Call to Repent
  5. The Ministry of Peter
  6. The Ministry of Paul
  7. Repentance Not to Be Repented of
  8. Repentance from Dead Works
  9. Repentance in the Apocalypse
  10. They Repented Not
  11. Does God Ever Repent?
  12. Impossible to Renew Unto Repentance
  13. Repentance and Forgiveness
  14. Hopeless Repentance
  15. City-Wide Repentance
  16. The Preaching that Produces Repentance
  17. But Is Repentance Desirable?

Pastor Ironside preached the simplicity that is in Christ, refuting the heresies of Calvinism (aka, Lordship Salvation) and Misunderstood Repentance. You don't turn from your sinning to be saved, you turn from your unbelief to believing to be saved. Since only unbelief keeps a man lost, then only believing can save him.

It blows my mind that Bob Jones University (BJU) today in 2021 preaches Lordship Salvation, which is a perversion of God's grace and an enemy of soulwinning. Dr. Bob Jones Sr. would blow Bob Jones College to smithereens today if he could, and he said so in 1945. Dr. Steve Pettit has irresponsibly steered the college into an iceberg of Lordship Salvation, the consequence of which is that BJU is sinking into an icy sea of the Devil's false Bibles. ....


Many passages of Scripture are ambiguous and open to interpretation, but the Gospel is not one of them. We have a very clear definition of exactly what 'THE GOSPEL' is in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4. The Gospel of John waswritten, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name” (John 20:31). In the Gospel of John we find the word believe mentioned 85 times, but the word repent is never mentioned. That is because repentance and believing are the SAME act. The man who believes has repented (i.e., changed his mind). 

In John chapters 19-20 we read about Christ's death on the cross for our sins, His burial and subsequent physical resurrection from the dead after three days. This is the Gospel (the Good News), by which we are saved, if we believe (Romans 1:16). John 3:18, “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” 

Can Believers Live Like The Devil?

Most people think that how you live determines your eternal destination. But living bad doesn't send you to Hell, and living good doesn't send you to Heaven, you must believe on Jesus Christ as your Savior! Yes, a Christian believer CAN live like the Devil and still be saved, because getting saved has nothing to do with our behavior, it is solely predicated upon Christ's sacrifice on the cross of Calvary.

Read what Pastor Charles Spurgeon said:

“Christians can never sin cheaply; they pay a heavy price for iniquity. Transgression destroys peace of mind, obscures fellowship with Jesus, hinders prayer, brings darkness over the soul; therefore be not the serf and bondman of sin.” ―Pastor Charles H. Spurgeon, 'Morning And Evening: Daily Readings'

Low living comes at a high price for believers! This has nothing to do with salvation. Pastor Ralph 'Yankee' Arnold addresses this important topic in his sermon called: 'The Price Is Right.' We don't do good works to go to Heaven, we're already going to Heaven, but God wants His children to zealously perform good works (Ephesians 2:10; Titus 2:14).

We are not going to be saved someday, we are already saved. If you are a believer, you already possess everlasting life. John 5:24, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” That is why we can rejoice confidently as God's saints, knowing that our name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

The Righteous Are As Bold As A Lion

Proverbs 28:1, “The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.”

I love that Bible verse! The wicked person flees when no man pursueth. That means evildoers have to look over their shoulder all the time, paranoid that they'll either get caught. The person who does right can walk in complete boldness, fearing nothing. I would infinitely rather die as a righteous man for doing right, than to suffer as an evildoer! What saith the Scripture? 1st Peter 4:15-16, “But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters. Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.” I would ten billion times rather die for my Christian faith, than suffer for hurting another human being. I hate evildoers! I don't hate people, I hate the sin. We must never accept the sin with the sinner, nor reject the sinner with the sin. 
Psalms 97:10-12, Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
Crime does pay short-term, otherwise people wouldn't commit it; but it never pays in the long-term! Ecclesiastes 8:12, “Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him: But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.” Our walk with God should be strong enough as believers, that we do right when no one else is looking, because WE FEAR GOD. I love something that Dr. Jack Hyles said: 
“If you want to never do anything that is terribly wicked, then you never do anything that is slightly wicked.” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “Unjust In The Least.”
By God's grace, I want to think rightlive right and do right. If we DO GOOD it will BE GOOD! Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) said that truth! Sometimes doing the right thing is frustrating, and may not be convenient, but it pleases our righteous God. Psalms 97:12, Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.” What a beautiful Bible verse! We are supposed to be thankful at the remembrance of God's holiness! I am so thankful that we have a just, faithful and good God! Aren't you? What if the Devil were more powerful than God? I am so thankful that when all is said in done in this life and world, that our holy and righteous God will make everything right. I love something that the brilliant author Mark Twain (1835-1910) said: 
“If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.” —Mark Twain
What a simple but profound statement! If we always tell the truth, we never have to cover our lies. I want to always live in such an honest and upright way, that if asked questions I never have to lie. I learned something that I thought was fascinating from a police detective. He said the way to find out if someone is lying is to simply keep asking questions. If someone is lying, then at some point their story will change, because they have to lie to cover-up for the lies. But if a person is telling the truth, you can ask them questions for three months and their story will never change. The way to avoid ending up in a difficult situation like that is to always DO RIGHT! Do right dear reader, though the stars fall, DO RIGHT!!! 

The Righteous Lord Loveth Righteousness

The primary evidence of being saved is the indwelling Holy Spirit (1st John 3:24), who creates a desire in us for righteousness. 1st John 3:7-8, “Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” That doesn't mean someone is not saved who lives in unrepentant sin. There is much confusion and debate over this subject in churches today. Christians don't always do the right thing. In fact, sometimes believers commit horrible crimes, just like unbelievers do at times; but there should be a desire inside the breast of every born-again child of God, that hates evil. I hate the wrong things I have done in my life. I am not proud of them. I wish I could go back and undo them, and always do the right thing! That is the Holy Spirit in me!!!

Psalms 11:7, “For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.” I want God to be proud of me! I want my heavenly Father's face to shine toward me, bragging on me like He did Job. I want to work as hard as I can, in the Lord's strength, to influence as many people with the Gospel of free grace as I can, so there will be a bunch of saved souls waiting to greet me in Heaven someday (Daniel 12:3). God loves when His children do right! No one ever gets away with anything. I heard recently that the conviction rate for murderers is about 50%. Most people who commit horrible crimes are never brought to justice. The culprits behind the 911 attack on the World Trade Center in New York City have never been brought to justice. The corrupt U.S. Justice Department has turned a blind eye to the crimes, but Ecclesiastes 5:8 and 12:14 says they won't get away with it. I thank God for those passages of Holy Scripture!!!

The Upright Christian Can Stand As Bold As A Lion

The righteous are as bold as a lion. What a beautiful truth! When I attended Hyles-Anderson College (1985-1993), I gladly served the Lord voluntarily in the 'B bus ministry' for seven years in Chicago. I drove a church bus for four of those years, which is how I sustained my permanent neck injury when rear-ended by another bus n 1992. We had a slum apartment building on our 76-3 bus route. This particular building was known for drugs and roughnecks. One afternoon there was a police raid and dozens of cops swarmed in on the building. One of our faithful teenage girls stood firm in front of the building, while everyone else who lived there was fleeing. The police asked her the question, “Why aren't you running?” She confidently replied, “I'm not doing anything wrong, so why would I run?” That is a perfect example of our text Bible verse from Proverbs 28:1, “The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” 


I don't know about you, but I am determined to always do the right thing. I know I won't always do the right thing, because I am a sinner by nature, but at any given moment I CAN choose to do what is right (1st Corinthians 10:13). It feels good to live right. When I surf the internet, I always assume that thousands of people are monitoring my activity, because some of them are. Everything we do online is recorded, shared, stored, monitored, analyzed and archived. There is no such thing as internet privacy! I never say anything in private that I wouldn't want everyone to know, because people talk. It is in our nature. James 3:8, “But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Every Christian believer ought to purpose in our heart to think right, live right and do right! That way we can confidently walk upright everywhere we go, at all times without guilt or worry, being AS BOLD AS A LION in the fear of God!
“No man can pray inside the will of God, while he lives outside the Word of God!” —Brother Lester Roloff, “Wisdom Of The Word

You Don't Give Your Life To Jesus, He Gave His Life

Romans 5:6-9, “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for usMuch more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” 1st Timothy 2:5-6, For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

Dear friend, Jesus Christ died FOR YOU! You are an ungodly sinner. Oh yes you are, you ain't fooling me, and so am I. We're all wicked sinners. Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Christ only died for BAD PEOPLE! You are a bad dude (or dudette), and so am I. Yes, “dudette is a real word, I looked it up...lol. Dudette is a female dude! So listen up all you dudettes out there! You don't give your life to Jesus to be saved, because He gave His life for you on the cross!!!

I am so sick and tired of hearing these horrible preachers today, who are as corrupt theologically as can be, telling people to “Give your life to Jesus to be saved. They've got it all backwards!

The Gift Of Eternal Life Is Wrapped In The Wonderful Package Of Jesus

Romans 5:18, “Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gi...
