The Apostle Paul clearly defines the Gospel for us in our text passage. Paul doesn't mention anything about turning away from a lifestyle of sin. Paul doesn't mention anything about water baptism. Paul doesn't mention anything about surrendering all to Christ as Lord. Paul doesn't embellish the Gospel which Jesus Himself gave to him. Galatians 1:11-12, “But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.” No one taught Paul the Gospel, the Lord gave it directly to him.
Why oh why is it so difficult for the Bob Jones University camp to leave the simplicity of Christ be! Why cannot they simply LET IT BE!!! The Beatles had it right in their iconic song: “LET IT BE.” Dear reader, LET IT BE!!! Let the Gospel be! The primary reason why most people will burn in the fires of Hell someday is because they were trusting TOO MUCH to get to Heaven! The Lord Himself simply said in 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.” That is how you get saved oh sinner! You simply come to God in your sinful ungodly state, BELIEVING the Good News (the Gospel) that Christ DIED on the cross to pay for your sins, He was BURIED, and three days later the precious Savior physically RESURRECTED from the dead.
“You can't just speak about getting saved, and you accepted Christ, and then that's it! There is a justification; There is a sanctification; There's ultimately a glorification, and though there are three parts, they are all part of the whole, and you cannot separate them. In order for you to qualify for the award, you have to get into the race, you have to stay in the race, and you have to finish the race. If you want to win, you have to run to the end; and winning in the Christian life is everything, because if you lose—if you don't finish—you lose everything—you lose your SOUL. And so, the Christian race is the life of faith that begins, is run, and is finished when we cross over into Heaven!” —Dr. Steve Pettit (“What Does It Mean To Run 'The Race'?,” BJU chapel - January 26th, 2015)
BLASPHEMY!!! Dear reader, what you just read by false teacher Steve Pettit is the Devil's lie of Calvinism. It is high time for all Christians everywhere to “REBUKE THEM SHARPLY” (Titus 1:10-13) who teach things contrary to the inspired King James Bible!!! I tell you with all Biblical confidence and certainty that YOU CAN accept Christ as your personal Savior and KNOW 100% that you are eternally saved and secure in Jesus Christ!!!
I was unjustly criticized by Pastor Sean Quinlan at the Lighthouse Baptist Church on Guam in 2018. Pastor Quinlan sarcastically said to me in rebuke: “You are obsessed with the Bible debate!” I took that insult as a badge of honor, because I have stood for THE TRUTH!!! What a shameful thing for a pastor to make, berating a fellow Christian laymen for being zealous over the Word of God. It would have been manly for Pastor Quinlan to encourage and commend me for having zeal over the Word of God, and to thank me for my zeal to expose the false Bibles that Bob Jones University sells, uses and promotes.
Instead Pastor Quinlan chose the low path, to make disparaging comments about me. What a bad pastor! In hindsight I am convinced that he felt threatened by my manhood and boldness to speak THE TRUTH. Pastor Quinlan was envious of me. He actually told me that he doesn't know even one thing wrong with the modern Bible revisions. How pathetic! For a Baptist pastor to scold me for having obsessive zeal over the inspired Word of God, and for him to admit that he doesn't even know anything about the issue, reveals how incompetent and foolish he is. Part of exposing heretics is calling names! Sean Quinlan ought to be ASHAMED of himself for bidding Godspeed to the apostate Bob Jones University (BJU) crowd! It is our business what they are propagating to the world!!!
Humbly said, I make no apologies for being “OBSESSED” over the inspired Word of God. I have to make up as a preacher for all the yellow-bellied preachers who won't stand!!! The average pastor today is far more concerned about the church offering than he is about upholding THE TRUTH. Sean Quinlan told me that he has the pathetic attitude: “What Harvest Baptist Church does on Guam is none of our business.” No sir, you are very wrong! What every church publicly preaches is every believer's business!!! Harvest Baptist Church on Guam has their own radio station (KHMG 88.1 FM), on which they broadcast chapel sermons from Bob Jones University throughout the Micronesian islands, which preach the Devil's lie of Calvinism. Dr. Steve Pettit is an unsaved Calvinist infidel. You had better believe that what Harvest does is my business, and it is yours too if you love the Lord Jesus Christ!!!
I am sick and tired of today's lame, incompetent, arrogant, spoiled, lazy and lackadaisical pastors who refuse to stand against falsehoods, evildoers and heresies! Proverbs 28:4, “They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.” Today's shameful pastors who lack concern over Satan corrupting the Word of God are consequently indifferent toward corrupt churches and Bible colleges. You show me a shallow pastor who doesn't care about the purity of God's Word or the accuracy of the Gospel, and I'll show you a bad pastor who doesn't faithfully walk with God in His inspired Word.
The Bible teaches in Psalms 119:104, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.” Something is WRONG with a pastor or preacher who doesn't get upset over FALSEHOODS and HATE EVERYT FALSE WAY!!! One of the positive comments that I have heard from my web visitors over the years is that my websites cover more subjects than any other websites they have found. Dear friend, that is because of Psalms 119:104, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.” I hate every false way as God commands me to!!! Too many pastors only care about the church budget, their own family, being paranoid about anyone like me with whom they feel uncomfortable. Those weasels don't deserve to be pastors, let alone get paid to milk their congregation. Sadly, over 95% of pastors nowadays are mere parasites!!! They walk in fear of anything that threatens their next paycheck.
That is exactly why the country is going to Hell. Jesus plainly warned in Luke 16:13 that NO MAN can serve God and mammon (a career). I have never received a single penny for serving God. That is why I preach with boldness as I do, calling names and am not afraid of whom I might offend. Pastor Jeff Redlin at Campus Church (at Pensacola Christian College in Florida) is a coward, afraid to expose the Bob Jones University crowd by name. It would be a cold day in Hell before Pastor Redlin ever grew a spinal cord strong enough to expose Dr. Steve Pettit as a false teacher and unsaved infidel. PCC are cowards, too afraid to offend the BJU camp, because they are all in bed together making tens of millions of dollars in revenues. The love of money is the root of all evil (1st Timothy 6:10).
What saith the Scripture? 1st Kings 18:21, “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.” I cannot think of a more applicable passage of Scripture to describe the Bob Jones (BJU) crowd, and sadly the Pensacola Christian College (PCC) camp, and hundreds more increasingly apostate institutions and churches today, who are INDIFFERENT toward doctrine and truth. The prophet Elijah gave an invitation to the people of Israel. Elijah put them on the spot, asking the Jews to make a decision, but THE PEOPLE ANSWERED HIM NOT A WORD!!!
That is so tragic and sad. That perfectly describes the PCC camp today, who refuse to take a Biblical stand against the damnable heresies being taught at Bob Jones University, and in the infidel churches of BJU alumni worldwide. How you live has nothing to do with your final destination!!! The Bob Jones University crowd are utterly confused on sanctification and justification concerning salvation. I love what Evangelist John Bunyan wisely said:
“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)
Amen, amen and amen!!! What a great statement! BJU are corrupting the Word of God and casting stumblingblocks before the people. It is not hard to discern why when we consider that the BJU camp uses umpteen different Bible revisions, which contradict one another! For example: Look how the modern Bible revisions pervert God's simple free grace plan of salvation. According to the Easy-To-Read Version (ESV), you must change your heart and your life to get to Heaven. Folks, that is NOT what Jesus said in John 10:9. The blessed Savior said in 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.” That is so simple! Jesus is THE DOOR by Whom we enter by faith into Heaven. Do not add anything to that!
Dear reader, I encourage you to spend some time in the Gospel of John. According to John 20:31 the Gospel of John is God's Gospel tract. John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” Over and over in the beautiful simple Gospel of John we are taught that the way to be saved is to BELIEVE. John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” All you have to do is NOT screw it up by adding things to the Gospel. In John chapter's 19 and 20 we read about Jesus' death, burial and bodily resurrection three days later. The beautiful thing about God's plan of salvation is that it is simple. 2nd Corinthians 11:3-4 even calls the Gospel “the simplicity that is in Christ.”
What the Bob Jones University camp have done is complicate the Gospel. BJU foolishly adds turning away from a sinful lifestyle to be saved. BJU adds surrendering all to Christ as “Lord” to be saved. BJU adds persevering in living the Christian life to get to Heaven. None of these are the simplicity that is in Christ!!!Pastor Harry Ironside (1876-1951) made this great statement refuting the Bob Jones camp:
"When anyone comes promising salvation to those ‘who make full surrender' of all that they have to God, and who 'pay the price of full salvation' he is preaching another gospel, for the price was paid on Calvary's cross and the work that saves is finished. It was Christ Jesus who made the full surrender when He yielded His life on Calvary that saves us, not our surrender in any way to Him." —Pastor Harry A. Ironside, from the beautiful Gospel tract titled: “Another Gospel”
Amen and amen! The more that I preach against the apostate Bob Jones University camp, the more people criticize me, telling me to let it go. But they speak as fools, because the Gospel is at stake friends. The Word of God is inspired still today, which we have preserved in the inspired King James Bible. It blows my mind that my home Bible college, at Hyles-Anderson College (HAC), has denied the inspiration of the King James Bible since 2008. Please say it isn't so! Sadly, it is true! Dear friend, God's Word has always been inspired, which means it is from God. They are God's Words, not man's. If you do some research, you'll learn that all of the modern Bible publishers think we don't have an inspired Holy Bible today. They think that at best all we have is the best mankind could produce. I totally disagree! I believe that I have EVERY WORD of God in the inspired King James Bible. Thank you Lord!
Dear reader, it is OUR BUSINESS what churches, pastors, Bible colleges, missionaries, evangelists and other members of the clergy dish out to the public. When I hear Harvest Baptist Church on Guam broadcasting Dr. Steve Pettit's damnable heresies of Calvinism (ala, Lordship salvation) on their corrupt radio station, it becomes MY BUSINESS!!! Harvest has since removed much of their doctrine from their church website, to save face because I have exposed them. I have REBUKED THEM SHARPLY as the Bible commands me to do in Titus 1:10-13. Why then are so many carnal believers upset with me for obeying the Holy Bible? I am exposing Lordship salvation, which Pastor's Sean Quinlan and Jeff Redlin bid them Godspeed at BJU. You'll never hear a negative word against the BJU leadership at PCC.
Folks, God does not want us to go along with falsehoods, damnable heresies, wickedness, evil, corrupt Bibles and counterfeit gospels. Christian Fundamentalism is not believing the fundamentals of the Bible. Fundamentalism is SEPARATING from those who no longer believe the fundamentals of the Word of God. BJU stopped being a fundamentalist Christian institution 40 years ago!!! BJU is a cesspool of iniquity, a den of vipers, a house built upon the sand which cannot stand when the tide rises and comes in.
I kindly encourage all believers to use social media to expose the Bob Jones University camp. Please don't do it for me. You should do it for Jesus Christ! Hell is real. Hell is a literal place that burns with fire. Everyone who dies in their sins without having trusted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior will be cast into Hell forever (Revelation 14:13; 20:15; 21:8). The Bible has more to say about Hell than it does Heaven! Sadly, according to a George Barna Poll, less than 1% of Americans think they will be cast into Hell to be punished someday. In fact, only about 1 in 200 Americans think they will burn in Hell (or .005 percent).
I am not the bad guy dear friend. I am the truth-teller. I am the Christian who cares. I am the child of God who thinks that RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!! I sure feel lonely preaching THE TRUTH against the lying Bob Jones camp today. I thank God that I am not completely alone. A dear brother in Chicago named Lou Martuneac (one of very few respectable Bob Jones graduates) has a wonderful blog rebuking the Bob Jones University camp for preaching Calvinism. I commend Lou for taking a stand with God's TRUTH and against the dark direction that BJU has deteriorated over the past half century. Great job Lou!!!BJU is training, brainwashing and sending out tens of thousands of graduates over the years. It is OUR BUSINESS what these graduates are being taught, and what they teach and preach in the churches that they run into the ground. Somebody needs to care! I CARE! GOD CERTAINLY CARES! DO YOU CARE DEAR FRIEND??? Calvinism is a lie of the Devil, a counterfeit plan of salvation, which must be exposed lest multitudes go to Hell forever.
Why Calvinism And Arminianism Cannot Give Assurance!
