Like NASA In 1986, Today's Pastors Are Not Listening

Proverbs 14:12, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Matthew 7:21, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

In 1986, the day before the Space Shuttle Challenger was launched in Florida, and exploded in flight, engineers warned NASA officials that it was not safe to launch the rocket below 53 degrees Fahrenheit. Despite the outside temperature being below freezing, NASA officials decided to go against the engineers (you know, the scientists who designed the rocket). Seven astronauts were murdered by NASA officials. Some stupid bureaucrats DIDN'T LISTEN TO THE WARNING from the engineers who built the rocket!!!

Likewise, God is the engineer of the plan of salvation for mankind. God has given us His engineering manual, called the Holy Bible. We have that blessed Book today in the inspired King James Bible. Since God designed and built the rocket that will take us to Heaven, He alone has a right to tell us how to use that rocket. The Gospel is God's rocket to Heaven. The Gospel means GOOD NEWS! It is the “Good News” of Jesus Christ's death on the cross, burial and bodily resurrection three days later (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). Anyone who comes to God as an admitted guilty sinner in need of redemption, receiving Christ's sacrifice on the cross as payment for their sins, trusting upon the risen Savior by faith alone, is saved.

It is so sad that seven astronauts needlessly died in 1986, because some corporate big shots thought they knew more than the contractor engineers. But wait, we see this same arrogance today in thousands of foolish pastors, who won't follow the Gospel. Instead, they are following a corrupt theologian who lived 500 years ago named John Calvin (1509-1564). Today, Calvinism has been cleverly repackaged into a heresy known as Lordship Salvation. This lie of Satan teaches that faith is not enough to be saved. In addition, Lordship Salvation requires that you surrender all to Jesus as your “Lord” to be saved. Proponents of this deadly heresy still deceitfully maintain that salvation is wholly by grace, but say if you don't have WORKS your faith is not genuine and you're not really saved. Clearly, that is a works based type of false salvation. The true Gospel taught in the Bible excludes works in all its forms!

Dear reader, we've got a bunch of big shot pastors today, who think they know more than God. The fact of the matter is that you cannot show me even one Bible verse that teaches to “repent of your sin” or “turn away from your sin” to be saved. So why does Bob Jones University (BJU) and many of their alumni preach another gospel of Lordship Salvation? As you will read in this blog, BJU today is not the same college it was 75 years ago when Dr. Bob Jones Sr. (1883-1968) was still at the helm. BJU is a perfect example of how easy it is for the Devil to creep heresy into an institution over time. Because of Dr. John MacArthur's worldly success as a pastor in Sun Valley, California (being an alumni of BJU), they idolize and follow his ministry at BJU. This is tragic, because Pastor John MacArthur is very wrong on the Gospel. In fact, Mr. MacArthur's plan of salvation is so foreign to what the Bible teaches, and so difficult, that he says children cannot be saved. That is not God's simple plan of salvation.

Dear friend, I highly recommend that you listen to God concerning salvation, and not what men say. I don't want you to believe what I say. I want you to search the Scriptures (John 5:39), and see if the things I say are so. Go look for yourself in the Bible, and see if it says to turn away from your sins to receive God's free gift of eternal life. And please make sure you only use the inspired King James Bible, because all of the Devil's modern Bible revisions are corrupt! You cannot trust any of them!!! All of Satan's apples have worms! The only inspired Words of God in the English language today are in the King James Bible.

ABOVE: This Chart Shows How The Bible
Has Been Corrupted To Obtain A Legal Copyright

The modern Bible revisions are ALL corrupt!

Luke 13:23-24, “Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.” The Bob Jones University crowd have been deceived by Satan. I do believe some of them are saved, because of the crossover between free grace churches and corrupt Lordship Salvation churches. There is a lot of confusion in the churches today, which is exactly how Satan hinders people from being born again (2nd Corinthians 4:3-4). It all depends on a person's mindset, if they have ever truly grasped and embraced the Gospel personally to be born-again. You'd be shocked if you knew how many churchgoers have never been born anew by the Holy Spirit of God. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life (Lordship Salvation), without ever being born again. That is what Luke 13:23-24 means.

The Space Shuttle Challenger disaster in 1986 was tragic, but avoidable, if NASA's leaders had simply listened to the engineers. It was too cold outside, which caused the giant O-ring to contract and not expand enough to seal properly during lift off. Seven innocent people died that day. It certainly can be called murder! NASA's protocol was intentionally violated. We see this today in tens of thousands of churches, violating God's protocol, perverting the Gospel into something entirely different! Please watch this excellent video presentation by one of my favorite preachers, Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold, so you can know HOW TO BE SAVED:

The Clear Gospel In 4 Minutes (Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold)

A Deadly Misunderstanding Of James Chapter Two

James 2:17-24, “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

This is one of the most misunderstood, hotly debated and abused passages of Scripture in the Bible. I love something that Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) said: “A good rule to follow when interpreting the Bible is to never use an obscure passage to contradict a clear one.” There is no argument that James chapter 2 is an obscure passage, which is exactly why it is hotly debated in theology circles. In sharp contrast, the Gospel of John is very plain. John teaches the reader simply to “believe” 85 times, without any mention of repentance, confessing Christ publicly, water baptism, turning away from sinful bad habits or growing. The Gospel of John is abundantly clear, with no obscurity, concerning how to get to Heaven. John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

There is a deadly heresy commonly taught by the Lordship Salvation crowd, which says James chapter 2 is teaching that faith alone cannot save a person. Advocates of Lordship Salvation claim that if a person's life has not changed, they are not saved because their faith is not genuine. So effectively, advocates of Lordship Salvation have a different understanding and definition of faith than the Bible does. This wrong meaning of faith held by the proponents of Lordship Salvation, is the SAME theological error held by the Seventh Day Adventist cult. Likewise, the Mormon religious cult also teach the SAME Lordship Salvation as do Marty Herron, Faith Baptist Bible College And Theological Seminary; Sam Horn, Master's University (John MacArthur's school); Steve Pettit, Bob Jones University; Gary Walton, Harvest Baptist Church on Guam; Charles and Daniel Phelps, Colonial Hills Baptist Church in Indianapolis, Indiana; Ray Comfort, Living Waters; and countless more theological frauds and pulpit devils. All of these heretics are hellbound without true salvation.

Pastor Curtis Hutson rightly exposes these wicked false prophets, preaching THE TRUTH that they cannot be saved until they repent of their wrong idea of what it means to repent...

The Bible meaning of repentance is simply “a change of mind, not a change of lifestyle. Advocates of the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation wrest (torture) the Bible to their own destruction (2nd Peter 3:16-17). They totally ignore the clear teaching of the entire Gospel of John, wresting an obscure passage of Scripture to bolster up their straw man heresies of turning away from sin, surrendering all to Christ, following Jesus as “Lord” no matter what the cost, faithfully running the race and exchanging all that you are for all that He is, to be saved. These are the crazy theological things that the aforementioned false prophets all preach!!!

I was listening to a heretical sermon today by the son of Pastor Church Phelps (the pastor who shamefully covered up for a rapist in New Hampshire). Daniel Phelps preaches this heretical sermon titled: “Faith That Works.” In the horrible sermon, Daniel teaches that someone's faith in Jesus Christ as Savior is ineffective to save, if that faith does not INCLUDE works, which he heretically defines as:

  • Real faith is demonstrated by our activities.
  • Real faith is proven by testing.
  • Real faith is rewarded by God.
  • Be motivated by the reward your perseverance is sure to bring.

These false teachings by Daniel Phelps are NOT what the inspired King James Bible teaches! I receive so many emails from worried professed Christians, scared that they might not be saved because of an abundance of sins in their life. They are worried after hearing corrupt preachers from the Bob Jones University camp, like Charles and Daniel Phelps, and Marty Herron, and Gary Walton and John MacArthur. These evil men are all infidels!!! They are the ENEMIES of God, corrupters of God's free gift of grace and eternal life (Ephesians 2:8-9).

The famous author of the book Pilgrim's Progress, and Gospel preacher, John Bunyan said it well:

 “If you do not put a difference between justification wrought by the man Christ without and sanctification wrought by the Spirit of Christ within, you are not able to divide the Word aright; but contrariwise, you corrupt the Word of God, and cast stumbling blocks before the people.” —John Bunyan (1628-1688)

Daniel Phelps (like his perverse father) are corrupt on God's grace, both preaching ANOTHER GOSPEL (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4; Galatians 1:6-9). The Bob Jones camp cast stumbling blocks before their students, infiltrating and infecting thousands of Baptist churches with the deadly poison of Calvinism. I am sick and tired of hearing these reprobates of the faith, who ADD living a changed life to faith alone. They lie and still maintain that salvation is wholly by grace alone, yet they insist that you must live a changed life to proven that your faith is genuine. That is NOT faith.

Dear friend, if I offer you a gift for your birthday, all you would need to do is take it. But what if I said that I am going to be watching your behavior over the coming year, to see how you are doing? And what if I tell you that you will lose the gift I am handing to you, if you fail to live a certain way? First, you would think I am a nut. Second, you certainly wouldn't feel like it is a gift. So why is it that when it comes to God's gift of eternal life, by faith alone in the GOOD NEWS (Gospel) of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and bodily resurrected from the dead the third day, we can no longer conceive the meaning of a free gift?

At the end of the perverse sermon, Daniel Phelps says that those who “persevere” will receive the “reward” of Heaven. This is the same damnable garbage that Dr. Steve Pettit (shameful president of Bob Jones University) preaches. These wicked men are NOT true believers! They preach a false gospel of partial faith in Christ plus works. There is no assurance of salvation in their theology, because you cannot KNOW you are saved until you've proven that it is real, by living a holy life, activities, testing and persevering. These corrupters of grace cast stumbling stones before the people, confusing sanctification within by justification without. The Christian believer is justified by faith alone in an instant; but sanctification (growing in the Lord) takes a lifetime. Millions of believers choose to live in sin, and do not attend church. They have dirty minds. They drink booze. Many live in the sin of fornication, with no intention of getting married at any time. The Lordship Salvation camp says they are not really saved, because they have never repented of their sins. They are WRONG!

Dear reader, I hope you are listening. I am telling you THE TRUTH. God's free gift of eternal life is obtained without any obligation to you whatsoever to change your life. Reformation (turning away from sins) is not repentance (a change of mind). Penitence is sorrow for sins, not repentance. Penance is trying to make a mend for sin, not repentance. Repentance is realizing that you are a guilty needy sinner in the sight of a Holy God (Romans 3:19-20), which compels you to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ to be forgiven and saved eternally (Acts 16:30-31). Tens of millions of churchgoers are being led into the fires of Hell by the Bob Jones University camp today, with their damnable lies of Misunderstood Repentance and Lordship Salvation. Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) also faithfully exposes BJU's False Bibles, which is the source of their damnable heresies. 

James chapter 2 simply refers to being justified in the eyes of men. The key verse is James 2:18, “Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Carefully notice that James says I WILL SHEW YOU! James wasn't speaking about being justified in the sight of God. The Apostle Paul speaks of justification in the sight of God in Romans 4:4-6, which is BY FAITH ALONE WITHOUT WORKS. The Bible even says that in Romans 4:5! Yet, these theological liars (like Marty Herron, Chuck and Daniel Phelps) will tell you salvation is still by grace, while insisting that you must WORK to prove that your faith is real. Even a small child can see that this rotten apple has worms!!!

Satanic Modern Bible Versions Say It Is Hard To Enter God's Kingdom

1st Corinthians 11:3, “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.”

Repeatedly in the precious Scriptures we are taught that getting saved is free, simple and easy. Getting saved is as easy as drinking a glass of water, if that water is Jesus. John 4:10, “Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.” Notice that Jesus said the water of life (salvation) is a “gift,” and that the woman at the well simply needed to ask Him to receive it. Getting saved is as easy as walking through a door, if that door is Jesus. 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.” Our text verse above calls the Gospel (Good News) “the simplicity that is in Christ” (2nd Corinthians 11:3). It is that simple to be saved. Christ died, that's history; Christ died for me, that's salvation!

If you admit that you are a guilty sinner in God's eyes, and you receive Christ's sacrificial death on the cross as full-payment for your sins, believing that He was buried, and bodily raised up from the dead 72 hours later, you are saved. It is that simple!!! With this simple truth in mind, now take a look at how Satan has perverted the modern Bible revisions to complicate getting saved. Here is a comparison of Mark 10:24 between the trustworthy King James Bible (KJB), and the corrupted Easy-To-Read version (ERV), the New International Version (NIV), and the Southern Baptist Convention's exclusive, Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB). ...
KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB) - Mark 10:24, “And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!”

ENGLISH STANDARD VERSION (ESV) - Mark 10:24, “And the disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said to them again, “Children, how difficult it is to enter the kingdom of God!”

EASY-TO-READ VERSION (ERV) - Mark 10:24, “The followers were amazed at what Jesus said. But he said again, “My children, it is very hard to enter God’s kingdom!”

NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION (NIV) - Mark 10:24, “The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!”

HOLMAN CHRISTIAN STANDARD BIBLE (HCSB) - Mark 10:24, “But the disciples were astonished at His words. Again Jesus said to them, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!”
I've just given you another example (of literally thousands that exist) of Satanic corruption in the modern Bible revisions.

The King James Bible says that them that trust in riches will have a hard time entering into God's kingdom, because they are trusting in their riches instead of the Gospel. People with lots of money have a hard time believing on Jesus Christ, which requires humbling one's self enough to admit being a guilty sinner who cannot save our self. Wealthy people are used to relying upon themselves and their own riches. To be saved you must trust completely upon the Lord Jesus Christ! The satanic Alexandrian manuscripts (as evidenced in the preceding quotes from the ERV, ESV, NIV and HCSB) corrupt the Word of God, saying instead that it is hard to enter into God's kingdom. That is not what the King James Bible teaches. The new perverted Bible revisions are missing the phrase, “that trust in riches,” rendering the Word of God a lie. Why, Oh why, would any sensible pastor, Bible teacher or Christian want to use today's satanic Bible revisions that butcher the inspired Words of God???

If you show this vital information to your pastor, but he doesn't care and still chooses to use and/or support the modern Bible revisions, you need to leave that church and find a real man of God. Something is VERY wrong with a pastor that doesn't care about the purity of God's Words! God loathes neo-evangelical Baptist preachers today who are lukewarm, who use multiple Bible revisions and don't have enough spiritual discernment (or just don't care due to ecclesiastical peer pressure) to stand upon the Words of God! They claim to care about the truth, while promoting conflicting manuscripts of the Bible. I mean, either it is hard to get into Heaven, or it is easy. It cannot be both! One Bible is very correct, and the other is very wrong!

Gone, Gone, Gone... Yes, Acts 8:37 is Gone! - Unless You Have a King James Bible!

There is not a greater threat to the world today than the modern, Alexandrian, watered-down, corrupted, Beelzebub, perverted, copyrighted, Westcott and Hort translated, Bible revisions! WHAT A CRUEL HOAX ON THE CHURCHES!

Satan's NIV Revision Teaches Salvation By Water Baptism: Removes Acts 8:37 Completely

Here is Acts 8:37 quoted from the Easy-To-Read Version (ERV)...

Acts 8:37 -

That's right, it doesn't exist!!! Look for yourself! So now the new satanic Bible revisions teach that you can get into Heaven just by being water baptized. Verse 37 says you can only be water baptized IF YOU BELIEVE ON THE SON OF GOD! Verse 37 is critically important, don't you think? These new Bible revisions are of the Devil. Would somebody please wake up today's dead pastors and lame preachers, who couldn't care less!!! It is hard to grasp the dark reality that most pastors today are blinded by the Devil. They tolerate the plethora of modern Bible revisions, despite the insane fact that due to copyright restrictions they all read differently. If you don't like what one Bible revision says, then you can just read from another, and another, and another. This is wickedness! God only authored ONE BOOK folks, not hundreds!

Neo-evangelical churches and ministries are serving mammon instead of God. 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.” There is no middle ground. You either love God and stand for the truth at all cost, or else you love money and make excuses to shirk off your duty as a child of God to stand for truth. Although they would never admit to such shameful and wicked behavior, there is no other explanation for supporting the Devil's Bible versions. They choose to go-along-to-get-along, for the sake of acceptance by their ministry peers and job security. And may I say, the King James is the Bible, not a “version.” If you don't have a King James Bible, you don't have a Bible! Satan is trying to confuse everybody by publishing literally hundreds of English Bible versions. If you have a King James Bible, you have God's preserved and inspired Words!!!

BATTLE OF THE AGES (Dr. Hyles, “The King James Bible crowd is going to come out on top!”)

Nearly every pastor who uses, tolerates, and refuses to expose the corrupt Alexandrian Bible manuscripts has been warned, but he doesn't care. Bob Jones University (BJU) and Moody Bible Institute (MBI) have been warned repeated about the Bible issue, but they are stiffnecked with stubborn pride. As Satan has relentlessly changed the Words of God into a lie over the past half-century, these religious institutions have stood idle, going along to get along with mainstream evangelicalism! In so doing, they have helped the enemy! They are now on enemy territory, pulling on the same rope as the Devil! People in the churches are as confused as ever! God is not the author of confusion (1st Corinthians 14:33), but Satan is!

The Devil fully knows that the most effective deception is the half-truth. For example: When the Devil perverts the plan of salvation, he starts off with the truth that eternal life is a gift. So he'll tell you that getting saved is a gift, but then he'll add the unbiblical requirement to “turn from your sins” also. So now the Devil has you foolishly thinking that salvation is a gift that you must do something to get. You've been deceived!

Whereas God has told Adam and Eve they could freely eat of every tree in the Garden of Eden except one (Genesis 2:16-17), the serpent (Satan) lied to Eve and convinced her that God told them not to eat from any of the trees (Genesis 3:1). Satan tricked Eve by presenting his lie in the form of a question. Satan is very subtle. Where do you think the ungodly newsmedia gets their training? That's right, from the Devil who is their spiritual father.

The Greatest Book In The World! (video, Pastor Danny Castle; The King James Bible is God's Word!)

Beware of Satan's Poison Apples

My friend, Satan is a big liar! The Devil is deceiving the whole world, even most of the churches (Revelation 12:9). But you don't have to be deceived if you're a born-again Christian who walks with God, abiding in the King James Bible! You show me a professed Christian who doesn't make a fuss over which Bible version is accurate, and I'll show you a weak believer (if they're saved at all), who doesn't truly walk close to the Lord. Amos 3:3, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” How can any Christian walk with God in a dozen Bible revisions? You cannot! God's Words are incorruptible. We are born-again by the incorruptible Word of God. 1st Peter 1:23, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” A person cannot be born anew from corruptible words!!! You've seen how the new Bible revisions pervert mark 10:24 and Acts 8:37.

In John 3:16, the new versions completely remove the word “begotten” concerning Jesus as the Son of God. I am an adopted son of God, and so is every believer (John 1:12). Romans 8:15 says we cry out to God, “whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” God has many sons, but Jesus is the only “BEGOTTEN” (biological) Son of God. That's an important truth. Hence, all of the modern Bible revisions teach heresy, claiming that Jesus is God's “only son,” because Jesus is not God's only son. Jesus is God's only “begotten” Son. Amen!

The moral of this lesson is very clear... use only the precious KING JAMES BIBLE. If you have any of the modern Bible PERversions, rip them up and throw them away, or burn them in your barbeque! Do the Lord a favor! God loves when His children are hot, not lukewarm. God doesn't want us to be cold, that is, carnal; but Revelation 3:15-16 teaches that God would much rather prefer for us to be cold than lukewarm (middle of the road). The corrupt Bible revision crowd are unsaved. You cannot be born again from corruptible word. There are many Christians who were saved under the King James Bible, but due to sinful compromise with the ecumenical movement, have embraced the Devil's dirty dozen as well!

The average neo-evangelical churchgoer uses about a dozen favorite Bible revisions (of literally hundreds of English revisions available) to form their warped theology. I call these the “Devil's dirty dozen”! Some neo-evangelicals are saved, most are not! The heresy of “turning from sins” to be saved (aka, Lordship Salvation) originates in the Alexandrian, Egypt, Bible perversions. Turning from sins is a work, which is effectively the same thing as keeping the works of the law to be saved, which God forbids. Romans 3:20, “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” God's law (i.e., the Ten Commandments) makes our sin exceedingly sinful (Romans 7:13), showing us our guilty condition when we break God's commandments, so that we may become guilty before God (Romans 3:19).

Eternal life and forgiveness of sins is a free gift (Ephesians 2:8-10). A gift may simply be taken. You cannot require anything more of the recipient of a gift, other than to take it, otherwise it ceases to be a gift. It is easy, free and simple to get to Heaven!

Three Men All Died Differently On Three Crosses

Luke 23:39-43, And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.” 1st Peter 2:24, Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

The Holy Bible teaches that there were two other men who were crucified with the Lord Jesus Christ. One of the men berated the Lord, challenging His deity. The man sarcastically said to Jesus, “If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.” (Luke 23:39). But the other man on the cross defended the Lord's honor, saying that whereas they both deserved to die for their crimes, Jesus was an innocent man Who did nothing wrong. 

So we see that there were three different men, who all died in different ways:

  1. Jesus died FOR SIN
  2. The repentant thief died TO SIN
  3. The unrepentant man died IN SIN

Every born-again believer DIES IN THE LORD. Revelation 14:13, “And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.” Every Christ-rejecter dies IN THEIR SIN. John 8:24, “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.Which are you dear reader? I became a born-again Christian at age 13. The moment I was saved I died to sin. That simply means that sin no longer had any power to condemn me, because I was under God's saving GRACE instead of the LAW. The unsaved man is still under the curse of God's law. 

Getting saved is like taking the stinger our of a bee. Once a bee stings, it cannot sting twice and it dies. Likewise, Christ died once on the cross for all mankind. Jesus took the sting out of death, for those who believe in Him as their personal Savior. This is justification. 1st Corinthians 15:56, “The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.” It is similar in our American court system. Once a person has been judged in court, that person cannot ever be tried again for the same crime. Once we get saved, we are declared justified freely forever. Nothing more is required.

All these false teachers today, like Dr. Steve Pettit (president of Bob Jones University) and Dr. John MacArthur (pastor of Grace To You ministry), who teach that faith alone is not enough to be saved, are perverting the grace of God. The Apostle Paul said he worried that the Galatian churches had been deceived from the 'SIMPLICTY THAT IS IN CHRIST,' which is the Gospel (Romans 1:16). The Gospel means GOOD NEWS! It is the Good News that Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sins, and that He was buried, and three days later He bodily resurrected from the dead (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). 

Any admitted guilty sinner who believes this Good News is immediately, irrevocably and permanently saved. Even a small child can believe the Gospel and be saved. Salvation is a free gift from God, which does NOT require giving up pet sins, turning over a new leaf, reforming one's life of sin, water baptism, good works, nor anything else. We are saved by faith alone. Anything else is a counterfeit gospel, and cannot produce the new birth, without which no one can enter into God's Kingdom Jesus said (John 3:3-7).

Three men died on a cross. One died FOR SIN, another died TO SIN, and the last man unfortunately died IN SIN. Which are you dear friend? The choice is yours alone to make.

Jesus Warned That Few People Will Enter Into Heaven

Matthew 7:13-15, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Luke 13:23-24, Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

I have observed an astonishing phenomena in Baptist churches my entire life—pastors and congregations embracing and tolerating the most heretical of doctrines. The Apostle Paul said that they didn't tolerate the perverse gospel even for one hour. Galatians 2:4-5, “And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.I wish we had more caring Christians today, like Paul, who understand the importance of nipping heresy in the bud quickly, lest it take root and spread.

Paul tells us why he refused to tolerate heresy in verse 5—that THE TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL might continue. Paul understood that a little leaven leaventh the whole lump. Galatians 5:7-9, “Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you. A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.” Paul is speaking about the truth of the Gospel here. The apostle is rebuking the churches of Galatia for allowing a religious cult to infiltrate and find acceptance with them. Paul warns them that a little ferment (bacteria) will eventually spoil the whole (whether it be bread, juice or a local church). Heresy is just like cancer, it spreads, destroying good tissue as it progresses. Paul is teaching believers the importance of Bible doctrinal soundness. Paul is effectively saying, “Right doctrine matters!

With these truths in mind, it will help us to better understand the Lord's words of warning in Matthew 7:13-15. Jesus said that “few” people ever find the narrow way unto eternal life. Evangelist Ray Comfort perverts this passage of Scripture, errantly teaching that the “narrow way refers to living a separated life from sin. Dear reader, that is not what Jesus meant. The way is narrow because men complicate everything, and the Gospel is very simple (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4). How simple? Read for yourself in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do. 

Yet, Ray Comfort horribly teaches that you must turn away from your sinful behavior, and LIVE A LIFESTYLE of abstaining from sin your entire life, to prove that your faith is genuine. Ray Comfort is preaching the Devil's lies of John Calvin (aka, Calvinism). If you have to look at your life to prove that you are saved, it proves that you're not! We are saved by God's righteousness through faith alone in Christ (Philippians 3:9). My friend, you don't have to turn away from your sins to be saved, you must be 100% sinless and perfect. That is why when asked who can be saved, Jesus said it is IMPOSSIBLE!!! ...

Matthew 19:24-25, “And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

So you see, you cannot save yourself, nor does God permit you to play any part in getting saved, except to get out of the way and rest in the finished redemptive work of Christ (Hebrews 4:10-11). Christ died on the cross, was buried and three days later He physically resurrected from the dead. This is the Gospel, the GOOD NEWS (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). Getting saved is so free, easy and simple that even a small child can do it (2nd Timothy 3:15). Pastor John MacArthur's false plan of salvation is so costly, hard and complicated, that he says children cannot be saved. This is why Jesus called the Gospel “the narrow way,” and said “strait is the gate” which leadeth unto life. ...

“The true Gospel always points you to Christ; a false gospel always points to you.” —Pastor Dennis Rokser

Millions of phony churches around the world have been infiltrated, corrupted and destroyed by the Devil's lies of Wrong Repentance, Lordship Salvation and doing Good Works to be saved. It never ceases to frustrate me to hear advocates of Lordship Salvation (which sadly includes the corrupt Bob Jones University crowd), still maintain that salvation is by grace alone, while adding a bunch of requirements to faith that God doesn't ask. Adding anything more to God's simple plan of salvation by childlike faith is a perversion of God's grace. Please read this excellent sermon excerpt from Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) called, 'A Perversion Of The Gospel: Lordship Salvation.' Also, I highly recommend these 100% Gospel accurate sermon videos by Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold. Thank God for free grace Gospel preachers!!!

Jesus warned in Matthew 7:13-14 that “few” people will be in Heaven in eternity. In Luke 13:23-24 Jesus said that “many” people will seek to enter into the gates of Heaven, but will be denied entrance. Can you imagine? It will be horrific. There will be lifelong missionaries, pastors and religious people by the billions, all trying to enter into the Pearly City, but won't be able to. Why? Jesus gives us the answer:

Matthew 7:21-23, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” 

What is the heavenly Father's will? I'm glad you asked my fine non-feathered friend. Jesus again gives us the answer in John 6:40, “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.God's will is to simply BELIEVE (rely, rest upon) Jesus to have the free gift of eternal life. That is why Jesus said the way is narrow and the gate is strait, because it is so simple to be saved that most men miss it. That is what it means to be fallen from grace in Galatians 5:4. Advocates of the heresies of Wrong Repentance and Lordship Salvation are fallen from gracethey have missed the only bus going to Heaven, they are subverted of themselves, hellbound in their partial faith in Christ plus: turning from sins, following Jesus, surrendering all to Christ as Lord,” paying the cost, running the race faithfully to the end and exchanging all that you are for all that Christ is. 

Literally, all of the preceding unbiblical additional requirements to be saved are what Steve Pettit, John MacArthur, Ray Comfort and Marty Herron preach. I have all their damnable quotes!!! Oh why won't churchgoers wake up and heed the truth that I (and free grace preachers like me) preach from the Word of God? 

God does not save anyone who has partial faith in Christ. I like to use the Chair Illustration. Let's say for the sake of illustration (humor me), that you need to replace a defective lightbulb in your home. You don't have a step ladder, so you use a chair. I've often done that myself. How much faith do you need to get up upon the chair? Just enough to actually do it! Likewise, that is all the faith you need to be saved, JUST ENOUGH to obey God by believing (placing your reliance upon) the GOOD NEWS of Christ crucified on the cross, buried and bodily risen three days later for our justification. Come to God as a guilty sinner and believe the Gospel and you are saved!!! It's that simple oh sinner.

Now, it wouldn't matter if you had 99% doubt in a chair's ability to hold you up, you would be placing no less than 100% of your faith in the chair if you stood upon it unaided. Faith is not the presence of optimism, it is the presence of obedience. I may not have much confidence in a chair, but if I get up and place all my weight upon it, I have trusted it completely! The same is true with receiving God's gift of eternal life. The Lord doesn't demand that you rid your mind of all doubts and fears. It wouldn't be faith without doubts and concerns. Faith is taking God at His Word, as written in the Holy Bible, simply receiving Christ's sacrifice on the cross as payment for your sins. Isn't that simple and beautiful. 

As hard as it is for many people to grasp, it is possible to serve Jesus your entire life and still burn in Hell forever. That is exactly what we see in Matthew 7:21-23. These were not bad people! They were not criminals. They tried to defend themselves at the judgment, telling Jesus that they did “MANY WONDERFUL WORKS” throughout their earthly life. They even called Jesus “LORD, LORD” (there's your Lordship Salvation crowd in the Bible). Jesus heard all their excuses. These were dedicated religious people, wholly committed to serving Christ. Yet, look at the horrifying words Jesus said to them in verse 23, “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Will Jesus also someday deny knowing you as one of His sheep? YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN (John 3:7). To read more about the simplicity of the Gospel, please read the excellent book by Michael P. Bowen, 'I NEVER KNEW YOU.'

You now know THE TRUTH and can become (if you're not already), one of THE FEW. Our churches today are filled with deceived people, who think that they have a part in saving themselves, by continuing to prove that their faith is real by living a holy life. Dear friend, what would be the evidence that my faith is real to stand upon a chair? Why, it would be the very act of me getting up to stand on the chair. Likewise, the evidence of a person's genuine faith in Jesus is faith itself, and nothing else! 

The heretical notion that a professed believer is required to prove the reality of their faith, by faithfully running the race (living the Christian life) is a false gospel. This is classic Calvinist heresy! The Bible says a believer SHOULD serve Christ; Calvinism says a believer WILL serve Christ; Catholics say you MUST do good works to be saved. JESUS PAID IT ALL!!! Self has no place in God's free simple plan of salvation. We are saved by God's imputed righteousness, and not by any goodness, effort, merit, sacrifice or self-righteousness of our own. We have nothing worthwhile to offer God (Isaiah 64:6). The ONLY thing that you and I contribute to salvation is the sin that made it necessary! Between me and the flames of Hell is the precious blood of Jesus which was shed on the cross of Calvary!

The Greatest Thing You Will Ever Do In Life

1st Corinthians 3:5-9, “Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.

Every man is reached by some man. Somebody somehow had to hear the Gospel in some way to get saved. That's the great thing anybody could ever do their entire life, to have somebody believe the Gospel because we shared it with them. I often receive emails from people who tell me that they got saved through my ministry. I cannot even out in words the great joy that floods my soul when I hear such precious testimonies. That is why I do what I do, tirelessly without monetary recompense, because I want to see people get saved. Romans 10:1, “Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.

Neither you or I have ever saved anybody. We might sow, or water the seed sown by another, or we may have the privilege of reaping that soul to Christ. We are laboring together with the Lord. The Bible says he that planteth and he that waters ARE ONE. Whatever our labor was, we are co-laborers with God. The Lord will reward us each according to our own LABOR, not for the results. God alone gives the increase! 1st Corinthians 3:7-8b, “So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one...Wow! The Bible says the seed sower and the seed reaper ARE ONE. So if you give someone a Gospel tract, and that seed of truth begins to work in their heart, and then years later I come along and win them to Christ, the Bible teaches that you and I BOTH had a part in that lost sinner's conversion. Neither you nor I can claim credit for that person getting saved, because God saved them, not us.

Lordship Salvation Is An Enemy Of Soulwinning

The Apostle Paul is emphasizing these truths to discourage cliques in the local church. I know the pain of not being accepted by a church clique. Sadly, Bob Jones University is very cliquish. They are very cultish. If you aren't accepted by the inner core of their clique, you're ostracized and left out. Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is one such clique. Pastor Marty Herron is an arrogant snob, who corrupted HBC when he was their shameful pastor between 1999 and 2018. 

When I attended Harvest for a year in 2014, I was accepted at first. But as soon as I loved them enough to befriend them with THE TRUTH, I was rejected and ostracized by the group. That is how religious cults operate. Since 2014 I have been shunned in the Guam community by everyone who attends Harvest Baptist Church. Just last week I was walking at Asan Beach and saw the church's Harvest House van, and some foster children with Harvest staff members. It was like I wasn't a human being as I passed by and befriended them. They refused to wave. They hate me. Because of Pastor Marty Herron and Pastor Gary Walton's wickedness, arrogant snobs who despise me, they have turned the entire church against me, so that I cannot even walk in public without being stared at, shunned and mistreated by their staff and members. That is of the Devil. That is a religious cult. That is not God's love.

Do you know what is the underlying core issue? Harvest Baptist Church is preaching another gospel. They preach the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation. They promote the Devil's corruptible seed in the modern perverse Bible revisions. They preach a misunderstood repentance that falsely requires people to try to stop sinning to be saved. Harvest Baptist Church is a Satanic cult, following their Satanic headquarters at Bob Jones University...

Here is an excellent sermons by Pastor Dennis Rokser, exposing the perversion of Lordship Salvation: Getting The Gospel Right And Wrong. There is not a more ungodly, corrupt and toxic group today than the Bob Jones University crowd and their hero Dr. John MacArthur. Marty Herron is a wicked false teacher, who now corrupts young people in Iowa, collecting a 6-digit salary as executive vice president of a dead deeper-life religious college. These apostates simply don't care about truth or hurting people. They only care about their careers. They only care about their buddies and friends. Dr. Steve Pettit is one of them, another apostate who preaches Calvinism at BJU. Woe unto the Bob Jones camp! Their arrogance will soon come to an end, and my Bible preaching will be vindicated by God. The Bob Jones camp have heaped coals of fire and God's judgement upon them (Galatians 1:6-9; 3:1-3; 5:4; 6:7).

Harvest's church logo is: “Helping People Develop A Heart For God,” but they ought to be honest and change it to: “Helping People Go To Hell Forever.” Jesus told the Samaritan woman in John 4:24 that God can only be worshipped in TRUTH and SPIRIT. God cannot be worshipped in error, for to do so Jesus called vain worship (Matthew 15:8).

Sharing The Gospel Is The Greatest Thing You Can Do

Millions of people (young and old alike) live to make money. Today's apostate Bible colleges are geared toward preparing young people to pursue money-making careers. As reasonable as that may sound to the carnally-minded person, that is not the high road to take. I am so sick of BJU luring young girls into their nursing program, to earn money in a nursing career. Consequently, BJU has slacked off in their moral standards, allowing female students to wear halter tops, slacks and pants. It is shameful. 

Psalms 97:10, “Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. Psalms 119:104, Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.I know some blog visitors are wondering why I preach against the Bob Jones crowd so much. These two Bible verses explain why. Lordship Salvation is a false way. It is evil. To preach Lordship Salvation, and to bid Godspeed to those who do, is evil. The Bible says that a Christian who abides in the Scriptures will HATE EVERY FALSE WAY. It is okay to hate, if you hate the right things, and not people. I love everyone. I love Marty Herron, Gary Walton and Steve Pettit, I just HATE the false gospel they preach. I HATE the counterfeit Bible revisions that they use, sell and promote. I HATE the misunderstanding of repentance that requires people to try to stop sinning as much to be saved, which is nonsense. 

Friend, you don't have to clean up your life to get into Heaven, you absolutely MUST be 100% perfect, sinless in every way. Who can do that? You're right, nobody can. That is why Jesus paid the price for our sins with His blood on the cross. When we trust Jesus as our personal Savior, receiving His sacrifice on the cross as payment for our sins, believing that He resurrected three days later from the dead, we are saved. God credits (imputes) our sins to Christ, and God imputes His righteousness to us. This all happens in a second of time BY FAITH ALONE (Ephesians 2:8-9).

I love the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. They think I hate them, but I hate their false doctrine. I hate their false Bibles. I hate their false understanding of what it means to repent. I hate their pride and arrogance, and loyalty to reprobates like Steve Peter, Marty Herron and John MacArthur, which causes them to continue down the path to Hell and destruction. I hate every false way. I hate evil. That is what God commands me and you to do. Something is very wrong with Bob Jones University today, that they don't see a problem with Calvinism. That is all that Lordship Salvation really is, repackaged Calvinism. “Calvinism” refers to the corrupt theological teachings of an unsaved religious man named John Calvin (1509-1564). Calvin was a madman, who literally murdered 58 people for disagreeing with his theology. So much for living a changed life to prove that you're saved, aka, Lordship Salvation.
Dear reader, the greatest thing you will ever do is to witness the Gospel to someone. Hopefully you've been sharing the Gospel with hundreds of people throughout your Christian life. If not, today is the first day to live happily ever after. Pastor Dwight L. Moody wisely said, “It is the only happy life to live for the salvation of souls.” Amen and amen. When Christians write to me, down and depressed with life, I already know that they never go soulwinning. I know because soulwinners are very happy people. Anybody who knows me knows that I always smile and have God's shine on my face. That is Jesus in me, the hope of glory. My name is written in Heaven. I am so blessed, regardless of what happens to me in this miserable earthly life. I have the blessed hope of God's promise of eternal life by faith (Titus 1:2).

I am sad that Harvest Baptist Church continues to reject and ostracize me, since 2014, but I rejoice in knowing the reasons why they reject me. They count me as their enemy (as the churches of Galatia did the Apostle Paul in Galatians 4:16), because like Paul I befriended them with THE TRUTH. They couldn't handle it. Marty Herron is a loyal buddy of Steve Pettit, and he will not go against headquarters, which would be career suicide. Amos 3:3, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” 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.The Bob Jones crowd cannot be right, and the free grace Gospel crowd be right too. 

I watched a very interesting 12 hour documentary by historian film producer, Ken Burns, on 'The American Civil War.' It is heartbreaking history! I just heard a quote in the film by President Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) that caught my attention...
“In great contests [battles], each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God—both may be, but one must be, wrong—God cannot be for and against the same thing at the same time!” —President Abraham Lincoln
Why did Mr. Lincoln say that? It is because both the Northern Union and the Southern Confederacy both claimed to be doing “God's will” in fighting The Civil War (1860-1965). Both President Jefferson Davis in the south, and President Abraham Lincoln in the north, said they were doing “God's will.” As Mr. Lincoln wisely points out, that is IMPOSSIBLE! When two opposing parties, who are warring against each other, claiming to be doing God's will, obviously someone is WRONG! That is why Abraham Lincoln made that powerful statement! 

So Bob Jones University and their dirty accomplices cannot be right, and also the opposing side (Jack Hyles, Curtis Hutson, Bob Gray Sr., Ralph Yankee Arnold, myself and Harry Ironside) all be correct. It is IMPOSSIBLE!!! Either you have to stop living in deliberate sinning to receive God's free gift of eternal life (as Lordship Salvation teaches), or else you don't have to quit your willful sinning to be saved (which is the truth of a free grace Gospel). I love Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995), who preached THE TRUTH that you don't go to Hell because you won't quit your sinning. There is no promise in the Bible to those who partially believe on Christ! Do you fully trust Him friend? I do. If Christ is your only hope for forgiveness of sins and eternal life, then you are saved. If you are also trusting water baptism, just in case, then you are not saved. You must put all your apples into one basket, and that basket is Jesus.

Are you are soulwinner? If you know that you are saved, then you should be able to tell someone else how you got saved. That is all that soulwinning is. Many people are confused by Satan, thinking that they must forsake sinful bad habits to be saved. Consequently, many people won't come to Christ, thinking wrongly that Jesus won't accept a big sinner like them. Dear reader, you couldn't be more mistaken if that is what you have been thinking. 
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 us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
Jesus only saves one type of person, THE UNGODLY! What did Jesus say? Mark 2:17, “When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.I am disturbed that some heretics can read this Bible passage, and mistakenly think that it means to turn away from sinning to be saved. They are guilty of the same sin as the self-righteous Pharisees, thinking that God saves people who reform themselves first. The Pharisees lived above reproach. They didn't commit adultery. They didn't murder. So they thought they were sinless. 

Look what Jesus said to the people about the self-righteous Pharisees in Matthew 5:20, “For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.Dear reader, unless you have more righteousness than the Lordship Salvation crowd, you won't go to Heaven when you die. You need GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS, not yours! 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:I tremendously love that Bible verse!!! We are saved by HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. That is what it means in Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
“The true Gospel always points you to Christ; a false gospel always points to you.” —Pastor Dennis Rokser

The greatest thing you'll ever do is to lead someone to Christ with the Gospel. I have had the blessed privilege to lead thousands of people to Jesus Christ through my humble online ministry. God saved them all, I just gave them the truth of the Gospel. Jesus said in John 15:5 that without Him we cannot do anything. Jesus is the vine, we are the branches. If we abide in Christ, then we will bear much fruit (Luke 8:15). That is our duty as believers, to be ambassadors of Christ to the world, reconciling sinners to God with the Gospel. 2nd Corinthians 5:20, “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.”

I have made an entire website dedicated to this great effort at SOULWINNING.INFO, which has many helpful resources for leading people to Christ. There is no specific way to share the Gospel, just be natural and talk normally to people. Usually they will bring up the subject. I made my own Gospel tract a couple years ago, which I pass out all the time of Guam. I like to put $20 inside, fold it up, and toss it out the window as I drive by to hurting people begging for money. Here's my .PDF Gospel tract if you'd like to print and share it with others also.

Many Pastors Have Destroyed Soulwinning Churches

I am now listening to a needful sermon by Pastor Jack Hyles called: “Many Pastors Have Destroyed My Vineyard.” Dr. Hyles said in this helpful sermon, “You never outgrow God's Great Commission.” Matthew 28:19-20, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” We are commanded to take the Gospel UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD. 

There is nothing more important than soulwinning. It is tragic that so many churches have fallen into the trap of WORSHIP. You cannot show me one verse in the King James Bible that says we go to church to worship God. You cannot! Pastors have destroyed our churches, turning them into fun centers and places of entertainment. The job of the New Testament church is to help sinners! These hypocritical churches who ban sinners, and drive out truth-tellers like me, are of the Devil. How can you help sinners if you kick them out of church? I'm not talking about defiant open sin in the church (1st Corinthians 5:1-5). 

The ungodly Harvest Baptist Church of Guam expelled a man for divorcing his wife. How can that man be helped now? They destroyed his life! Pastor Marty Herron kicked me out for telling THE TRUTH that Lordship Salvation is not the free grace Gospel. That devil has blood on his hands, and I'm going to be there when God makes him rue the day he hurt me for telling THE TRUTH!!! Kindly said, Pastor Herron is a theological liar, a false teacher and a religious hypocrite. He can sin, but no one else can. When a man on staff divorced his wife, Pastor Herron axed him, excommunicating him as a church member. But when Marty Herron bids Godspeed to evildoers Steve Pettit and John MacArthur, and spreads the Devil's corruptible seed of the modern perversions, and refuses to allow me to attend church, that's okay? I haven't had a church family since 2014 because of Marty Herron. He couldn't care less. I fully agree with Pastor Jack Hyles...

“I'm 62 years old, everybody's fighting any way, I think I'll just going go out fighting! I'm no longer going to keep my mouth shut.” —Pastor Jack Hyles, a quote from the sermon: 'Many Pastor's Have Destroyed My Vineyard'

The churches are all about reaching people for God. Today's pastors have no compassion, letting the world go to Hell. They're a bunch of yuppie-type academics, who have never built churches and couldn't care less about drunkards, the poor and hurting sinners like me who need love and a church family.

“I preached a week down there many years ago, every night for a week—Billy Sunday Tabernacle. You know why they're going to tear it down? 'Cause they ain't got enough religion to fill it up. That great tabernacle where they used to have great Bible conferences, where Billy Sunday and others used to preach, it's about to go down now. You know why? Because we've got a bunch of deeper-life people gathering around the Word, when we ought to gather around the hungry. I'm not against the Bible, I love the Bible, but the Bible is not just a Book for you to feast on and study, the Bible is a Book to use, to feed, to convict and to convert.” —Pastor Jack Hyles, a quote from the sermon: 'Many Pastor's Have Destroyed My Vineyard'

Thank you for reading.

Focus On Christ Alone And Not Yourself For Assurance

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. 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:

A hurting man has been emailing me in recent months. He is struggling with sin in his life, both past and present. According to his testimony, he has done horribly sinful things in his past, so much so that he is finding it hard to believe he is saved. I have exchanged a few dozen emails with him, recommending free online books, sermons, Gospel tracts and other helpful resources to guide him along. Mostly, I have encouraged him to spend a lot of time meditating in the King James Bible. Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” If you are struggling dear reader with any type of faith based issue, I highly recommend that you get into the Word of God. All of the modern Bible revisions are corrupted by the Devil, so I only use and recommend the inspired King James Bible.

I also gave the man I mentioned a few dozen Scripture passages, kindly suggesting that he commit them to memory to help him combat his doubts. As we just read in Romans 10:17, faith comes by hearing God's Word. That is also a big reason why it is very important that you and I, and every born-again believer, attend a solid Bible-believing church in your local community. Sadly, there are a lot of junk churches today, especially in the United States. You never know what to expect when you walk into a new church. So be on guard. Just be friendly toward everyone, humble, and go see what the church is about. Here is a list of Baptist churches near you (more).

It is normal to feel a bit awkward and strange for the first few visits. It is important that you feel comfortable overall being there. Just give it some time. It is very important that the pastor preaches a free grace view of the Gospel, and not the demonic junk called Lordship Salvation (LS). LS basically teaches that faith is not enough to get to Heaven. In addition, you are told that you must turn away from your sinful behavior, surrendering “all” to Christ, in an exchange of all that you are for all that Jesus is. LS is a toxic poison which has contaminated many churches today, turning once great churches into deadly religious cults. Please RUN AWAY quickly from any church, if you hear the pastor saying that you cannot merely accept Jesus as your Savior to be saved, but also, in addition, he says we must watch to examine that person's life for awhile to see if they're really saved. That is not the saving Gospel of free grace, not by a longshot, it is a works-based type of counterfeit salvation.

Getting back to the man I mentioned, I also sent him a link to my 42 chapter book called: 'SALVATION' to share my own testimony and truths which the Lord has taught me in my Christian life. I kindly sent him internet links to hundreds of helpful Bible sermons about salvation. Some of the best and most helpful salvation sermons you can share with others is on YouTube by Pastor Ralph 'Yankee' Arnold. Yet, despite all these helpful resources they guy emailed me back in desperation, saying that he needs me to pray for him that God will force him to believe, because he just doesn't have any faith that Christ will save him because of his wickedness. 

I get emails like this from time to time, and they are always easy for me to deal with. They are easy for a few reasons. First, God has blessed me with an excellent understanding of the Gospel. I had great teachers (Dr. Jack Hyles, Evangelist Harry Ironside, Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold, et cetera). Second, the Gospel is simple. The Bible calls the Gospel the simplicity that is in Christ (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4). Men always complicate things, but God made salvation simple. The Lord needed to keep salvation simple, because there are a lot of ignorant and base type of people in the world who cannot grasp complicated things. God is a good, fair and reasonable Creator. You cannot outdo God friend, He knows what He's doing.

Unfortunately, the man has persistently written back to express his religious scrupulosity, afraid that he is not saved, worried about going to Hell, asking me to pray for God to save him. I kindly responded by letting him know that I cannot pray for what he is asking. I do not have the right, nor is it proper biblically, to ask God to save someone. There is only one Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus (1st Timothy 2:5-6). I did however let him know that I did pray for God to give him knowledge and wisdom to help him understand the truth of the Gospel. I have explained the Gospel to him multiple times. But it doesn't matter what I say, because he is focusing on himself instead of Christ concerning salvation.

I didn't write this blog article to criticize the man in question; but rather, to help others who may be in a similar situation. It is my privilege to help others for Christ, so I maintain a humble spirit. Philippians 2:3, “Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.” Friend, I cannot save you. No Catholic priest or Lutheran minister has the right nor power to forgive anyone's sins. Jesus is the only Mediator between God and men. Salvation is of the Lord (Jonah 2:9). John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

When I send several dozen resources (books, sermons and tracts) to a person who is struggling to settle the assurance of salvation, and they persist to tell me that they just don't feel like they are saved, then it becomes clear to me that they are either:

  1. LAZY - They're not reading the books and sermons, nor listening to the sermons I have shared with them. Ninety-nine percent of the time, when people cannot get it settled after I help them, they never tell me about truths they read or learned from the resources I have kindly shared with them. Literally, some people would rather worry than study. They are lazy. For whatever reason they won't help them self by studying. What did Jesus say? John 5:39, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” Dear friend, if you are struggling to know you are saved, the answer is IN THE SCRIPTURE! I can show you Bible verses all day, but until you apply yourself to understand God's Word, you won't settle anything. People write to me and want me to tell them that they are saved, but I cannot and will not do that. You need to KNOW that you are saved based upon the written PROMISES of God in His Word. Jesus said to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES!!!
  2. LOOKING IN THE WRONG PLACE - They are focusing on them self instead of Christ. When Moses formed some brass into the shape of a serpent, the Israelites were told to LOOK AND LIVE. Because of their complaining God sent fiery deadly serpents (snakes) among the people to bite them. God instructed Moses to hold up the brass serpent on a pole, and whosoever LOOKED to the serpent LIVED. That serpent symbolized Jesus, the sinless Lamb of God Who chose to became as sin for you and me, to redeem us from the consequences of sin in Hell (2nd Corinthians 5:21). John 3:14-15, “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” Get your mind off yourself concerning salvation. Your attitude toward your sins has nothing to do with getting saved, except that you acknowledge being a guilty sinner in the sight of a holy God (Romans 3:19-20). 
  3. You and I contribute NOTHING to our salvation except the SIN that made it necessary.
  4. THEY HAVE OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) - OCD is a mental disorder, and no amount of Bible knowledge is going to help them short term. If a person is a worry wart, then their problem is psychological. The only advice I have for such a person is to bath your mind, heart and life with the King James Bible. Listen to Bible preaching every day. Every believer should attend a local Bible-believing church. I understand that there are many junk churches today, and not everyone has a good sound church to attend. But most people who email me with a bunch of problems DON'T go to church at all, nor do they desire to go. We all need fellowship with other believers, to encourage, comfort, love and help one another. There are several helpful website for people with OCD concerning assurance of salvation. I can help people who are ignorant of the Bible, but I cannot help people who refuse to trust Christ in lieu of the plain truth set before them.

Dear reader, please don't be scared off if you have any Bible questions for me. As long as you have Bible questions I CAN help you. But when you write to me, after all the truths I have shared with you, and tell me that you just don't trust Christ and you don't know why, I cannot help you any further. When a man tells me that he doesn't trust Jesus, and asks me to pray for God to force him to believe, I have nothing else to say to him. What do you mean you don't believe, but want to believe, and want me to pray for God to save you? I mean, you either believe that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God, the Christ, or you don't. You are either wholly relying upon Jesus, Who became the sacrifice for your sins on the cross, or you don't.

I kindly told the man that he is suffering from religious scrupulosity and is driving himself crazy by thinking too much. Salvation is so simple friend. Men always complicate everything. I understand what it feels like to have doubts, fear and cry in torment because I couldn't find the assurance of my salvation. But I never told God that I don't believe and don't know why. That is ridiculous. I always told God that I DO believe, but I still didn't FEEL like I was saved. I suffered for 7 miserable years as a lonely teenager, unable to find the sweet peace that I was saved. In hindsight, I learned many years later that I was simple ignorant of how salvation works. I had been misled by Baptist preachers my whole life, whole taught me to pray a prayer to get saved. That is the worst advice you can give an unsaved person, to pray to get saved.

I have had preachers rebuke me for teaching that prayer is not the Bible way to be saved. Folks, it is not the Bible way to be saved. Nowhere in the Gospel of John are we taught to PRAY to receive Christ as our personal Savior. In particular, respectfully, Pastor Steven Anderson (and those pastors who are die hard followers of his New IFB movement) are adamant about the necessity to pray to get saved. That is unbiblical. Don't take my word for it, study the Scripture for yourself. I triple-dog dare you to show me where the Bible commands anyone to pray to receive God's free gift of eternal life. You cannot! I say that kindly, but truthfully. We are saved simply by BELIEVING. John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

Dear reader, Christ paid it all. Jesus paid your debt of sin and mine. Anybody who comes to God as a dirty guilty sinner, receiving Christ's sacrifice on the cross as payment for their sins, is immediately, irrevocably and permanently saved. Now, it is not wrong to pray a prayer at the time of salvation. In fact, it is natural for someone to desire to pray. That is fine to do. I am not saying that someone who prays and asks Jesus to save them is not saved. I believe that Pastor Anderson, and the other pastors who follow his leadership worldwide, are legitimately getting people saved. But I am saying that I personally went through several unnecessary years of confusion, worry and misery because I was focusing on whether I prayed right or left something out. I was trusting Jesus with all my heart. I know I was saved at age 13. But I was looking at the wrong thing to find assurance, and it misled me. Until you LOOK TO JESUS alone, and not worry about your part in salvation, you'll never find peace.

Being confused doesn't necessarily mean you are not saved (but it certainly could mean that too). It all depends on what you are confused about, and where your trust rests. I always trusted Christ 100% from the very moment I was saved. But I thought the way you trust Christ is by asking Him to save you through prayer. I came to eventually learn that we are saved simply by BELIEVING, and nothing else. Praying is not believing, but a person may pray because they believe, which is what I did (Romans 10:14). Focus on Christ alone concerning salvation. If your faith is in the GOOD NEWS of Christ crucified, buried and risen, you are saved according to 1st Corinthians 15:1-4.
