The One Bible Verse That Proves "Repentance Will Change Your Behavior" Preachers Wrong

Romans 6:1, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?”

Here is a wonderful Bible verse I just read that PROVES WRONG James Melton, John MacArthur, Sam Horn, Ray Comfort, Paul Washer, Marty Herron, Steve Pettit, Chuck Phelps, Gary Walton, Jeff Redlin, Timothy Zacharias, Chip Ingram, William Lane Craig, Rick Warren, Benny Hinn, Joel Osteen, Steven Furtick, John Hagee, Charles Stanley, Adrian Rogers, Keith Gomez, Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, Mormons, Seventh-Day Adventists, Jehovah Witnesses, Roman Catholics, Church of Christ and MILLIONS more heretics on Bible repentance, who all falsely teach that genuine repentance results in a change of behavior (without which change they ASS-U-ME that you have never been born-again at all)...

Romans 6:1, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?” If a Christian CHOOSES to continue living like the Devil, for the remainder of their natural life, GRACE WILL ABOUND!!!!!!! 
That is, they can never forfeit, jeopardize nor lose God's free gift of eternal life, which is by faith alone WITHOUT WORKS (Romans 4:4-7).

Certainly, no child of God has the Lord's blessing or permission to commit sin (Hebrews 12:6-8), but the plain truth is that every saved person continues in sin. Psalms 130:3, "If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?" As believers we have the indwelling Holy Spirit who convicts us about our sins (1st John 3:24), but that doesn't guarantee we will stop committing sin. Truthfully, we will sin until the day we die, no matter how much we may try not to, because it is in our flesh.

Yes, it is possible dear reader for a true believer to CONTINUE IN SIN, and still have the 100% absolute confidence and peace of soul that he or she is saved safe and secure in the Father's hands.

Both God And The Devil Pressure Us To Choose Sides

Joshua 24:15, “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

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.

Revelation 3:15-16, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.”

Matthew 26:69-74, “Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee. But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest. And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth. And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man. And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee. Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.”

I was reading in the news today that actor Chris Pratt is under pressure from fellow actress Ellen Page and the LGBTQ community. I like Chris Pratt, who has openly professed that he is a Christian. Unfortunately, I have not been able to confirm that he is born-again, simply because I haven't found enough clear information. We know that Roman and Orthodox Catholics, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Seventh-Day Adventists and other pseudo-Christian religions are NOT genuine Christians, because they pervert the Gospel in various different ways. But as far as I can tell, Chris Pratt is not involved in any of those cults.

But Pratt does attend the popular ecumenical Zoe Church in Los Angeles, which preaches a FALSE GOSPEL. On their website it reads:
'We believe that all men are sinners by nature and choice and are therefore under condemnation, that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.' [emphasis added] ~SOURCE
WRONG! The Bible plainly defines “the Gospel” for us in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 as Jesus' DEATH on the cross, His BURIAL and His bodily RESURRECTION three days later. The Zoe church doesn't even mention these truths, they instead errantly teach lost sinners to “repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.” That is NOT God's simple plan of salvation.

Dear reader, the unsaved fools in Matthew 7:21-23 confessed Jesus as “Lord, Lord,” doing “many wonderful works in Jesus' name. They were dedicated followers of Christ, but the dear Savior adamantly denied knowing them. Why? It is because they failed to do the will of the Father, which we find 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.” I fear that Chris Pratt may merely be following Jesus as his Lord, having repented of his sins as Judas did (Matthew 27:3), yet still not be saved.

Also, I found this website titled: 'How Chris Pratt Became A Devout Christian.' The article says:
Pratt was introduced to religion as a wayward teenager in Maui, Hawaii, by a complete stranger.
"This guy came by and was like, 'What are you doing tonight?' I was like, 'Oh, I dunno...' So he's like, 'Will you fornicate tonight?' I was like, 'I hope so.' 'And drugs and drinking?' It's like, 'Most likely, yeah. Probably all three of those things. I mean, at least two of them, possibly all three,'" Pratt told Esquire magazine in 2014.
"He was like, 'I stopped because Jesus told me to stop and talk to you. He said to tell you you're destined for great things.' My friends came out, and I was like, 'Hey, I'm gonna go with this guy.' I gave my soul to Jesus within, like, two days. I was stuffing envelopes for his organisation, Jews for Jesus." ~SOURCE
Folks, if that is the extent of Chris Pratt's testimony of how he got saved, he is NOT SAVED!!!

Both Satan And God Pressure Humans To Take Sides

But regardless of whether Chris Pratt is truly a Christian or not, the heathen world thinks he is, and so they are pressuring him to choose sides. Whenever a celebrity is neutral on a moral matter, ESPECIALLY if that person claims to be a Christian, the wicked majority want to force that person to show their true colors.

We see this reality in the inspired King James Bible in our text passage from Matthew 26:69-74. The Apostle Peter wanted to remain neutral, mixing in with the crowd in incognito. Peter was scared of persecution, prosecution and crucifixtion. The Romans were cruel to those convicted of crimes. I bought a very interesting book several years ago while waiting for my connecting flight in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The book is called: “Killing Jesus” by Bill O'Reilly and Bill Dugard. The book gives the reader an intriguing glimpse (full of fascinating facts) from behind the scenes. The book covers details of Herod, Tiberias, Rome and other information.

I learned from the book that there were other popular methods of executing prisoners. Of course, crucifixtion was very popular. But Roman soldiers also sealed people in bags full of scorpions! Ouch! Disemboweling victims was also quite common. The Romans were notorious for their cruelty, represented by the legs of iron on Nebuchadnezzar's image, which dream was interpreted by the prophet Daniel, in Daniel chapter two. The two separate legs represented the divided Roman empire, which eventually fell to anarchy, invaders and chaos in 476 AD. Contrary to the thinking of many theologians, there will not be a “revived Roman empire”; but rather, a New World Order (Revelation 17:12). It is from the 7th kingdom (NWO) that the 8th (the Antichrist, or Man of Sin) will arise from its midst.

We see that three different unsaved people pressured Peter to take sides. They recognized him and insisted that Peter was one of Jesus' disciples. Peter was scared and all three times vehemently denied knowing Jesus, even cursing the dear Lord's name. That is what public pressure can do to a person!!!

Likewise, Chris Pratt is under fire right now because he professes faith in Jesus Christ. In response he has attempted to defend himself. Chris has denied being religious, trying to distance himself from organized religion. The wicked world is putting on the heat! This is what the Devil and his children do, refusing to allow anyone to straddle the fence. With Satan you're either in or out, there is no middle ground. Actor after actor in Hollywood has been put in the hot-seat, with ungodly liberals and the evil LGBTQ community demanding to know where they stand on the social issues of abortion, homosexuality, gun control, gender change, critical theory, illegal aliens, child discipline, feminism, et cetera.

But dear reader, God also puts the pressure on. A godly preacher will give an invitation at the end of his sermon, putting the pressure on for people to take the next step. God never intended for church to become a time of entertainment, fun and social engineering. Most churches today are pathetic, because today's pastors have bad attitudes, making every excuse imaginable for their laziness, incompetence and lack of spiritual vision for the church. I am so disgusted every time I visit another church, seeing a ton of problems. I don't go looking for weakness, faults and shortcomings in churches and pastors, but it's kind of like watching the debris after a deadly train wreck (you cannot help but see the horrific disaster).

In our text Scripture from Revelation 3:15-16, God pressured the church of Laodicea to repent (think differently). The Lord said He vomited them out because they were LUKEWARM. God wants every believer, church and pastor to be HOT or COLD, because He hates LUKEWARM. God is telling us that He has more respect for an honest person, who admits that they just don't care and choose to be COLD; than He does for some two-faced Harvey Dent type of shady character, who cannot make up his twisted mind. Most churchgoers today are a trainwreck in progress, and their pastor is the reckless train engineer who ran the train off the bridge. The average church today is headed for Casandra's Crossing!!! (a 1976 deadly disaster movie about a train that crashes fiery down into a deep valley)...

'Cassandra's Crossing' Movie Represents Average Baptist Church Today!

I am so sick and tired of hearing woefully ignorant preachers tell people to repent “OF YOUR SINS,” when no such phrase or teaching is found in the inspired King James Bible. What is wrong with today's stupid pastors? Hey, I didn't add to the Word of God, they did! Proverbs 30:5-6, “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.” When your pastor says you must repent “OF YOUR SINS” to receive God's free gift of eternal life, he DIDN'T get that from the Holy Bible, he got it from other corrupt preachers. But please don't take my word for it, “SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES for yourself as Jesus commanded in John 5:39a. I triple-dog dare you to show me “OF YOUR SINS” in the inspired Word of God.

Repentance is simply a change of mind (Greek noun: metanoia), where a lost sinner realizes that he is a guilty sinner in the sight of a holy God, so that seeing his need he turns to Jesus Christ by faith to be saved (Galatians 3:24-26). Why do humans always complicate things? It is because our very carnal sin nature compels us to add human effort to God's grace. But to do so is a counterfeit plan of salvation, which cannot produce the new birth. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Chrisdtian life without ever being born-again.

This is the great danger of churches like the Zoe Church in Los Angeles. Their damnable false plan of salvation is centered in man's following Jesus as Supreme “Lord of one's life, and repenting (turning) away from your sinful ways. This is partial faith in Christ plus WORKS!!! Nowhere on their website does the Zoe Church preach the Gospel. Instead, they are preaching false religion, Lordship Salvation and misunderstood repentance. If this seems like a small matter to you friend, or splitting of theological hairs, then I am worried about your salvation as well. RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!!

In the Bible we see where Satan's crowd pressured Peter to deny Christ, or risk being killed if he proclaimed the name of Jesus. Likewise, we see in the Bible where God's prophet, Joshua, pressured the people to choose sides. Also, the godly prophet Elijah, pressured the people to make a choice! But they answered Elijah not a word the Bible says (1st Kings 18:21). No one can go through life and escape making a choice for God or Satan! Whether you want to or not, we all eventually choose up sides. I am on the side of the Lord Jesus Christ!!!

Beware Of Damnable Heretic: President Steve Pettit Of Bob Jones University

Philippians 1:17b, "I am set for the defence of the Gospel."

Evangelist Steve Pettit has been the theologically incompetent president of Bob Jones University (BJU) since 2014. Dr. Pettit is an unsaved infidel, a diehard Calvinist, a reprobate who preaches another gospel of Lordship Salvation, who heretically states:
“For the real reality of the genuineness of your faith is that you are faithful to run the race!” —Dr. Steve Pettit (“What Does It Mean To Run 'The Race'?” - 22:44)
No, the reality of the genuineness of your faith is YOUR FAITH!!! I am sick and tired of these ungodly false prophets adding to God's Word (Proverbs 30:5-6), corrupting the simplicity that is in Christ (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4), which is "the gospel" (Romans 1:16). The Apostle Paul plainly defines "the gospel" in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 as Christ's death on the cross, His burial and bodily resurrection three days later. This is officially "the gospel."

So where do all these wicked pastors today get the idea that a lost person must turn away from their sinful behavior, follow Christ as "Lord," surrender all, count the cost and pay the price, run the race faithfully and invite Christ into your life? None of these embellishments are taught in Paul's Gospel (which he received directly from Jesus Christ - Galatians 1:12).

Kindly said, Steve Pettit is a BOLD-FACED LIAR and we all need to expose him, because BJU is influencing thousands of students, who will go out and corrupt thousands of churches. 

You can spot an infidel Calvinist preacher right away, the moment that he says you cannot write your name, date and place that you got saved in your Bible. Read what Steve Pettit said in BJU chapel to 2,800 students and faculty on January 26, 2015:
“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'?” - 11:34 time in sermon)
Lest you have any doubt that Steve Pettit preaches another gospel, read what else he said:

“'The race' is a description of the whole of the Christian life of faith.” —Dr. Steve Pettit (“What Does It Mean To Run 'The Race'?” - 4:26)
That is some dangerous talk when you include the next quote from Dr. Pettit, in which he teaches over 2,700 BJU students that the “AWARD” for running 'The Race' is “Heaven itself”!!!
“We run the race, we cross the finish line, and so what’s the prize? What is the award? Well, there are different viewpoints. Some would have the viewpoint that the awards are crowns in Heaven. But as I read the book of Hebrews and see the whole gist of the book and the flow of the book, I don’t believe its referring to crowns in Heaven. I think it is referring to Heaven itself.” [emphasis added] —Dr. Steve Pettit (“What Does It Mean To Run 'The Race'?” - 22:57)
Heaven itself? Oh my! What saith the Scripture? 1st Corinthians 9:24-25, “Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.” As you just read, the “award” will be an “INCORRUPTIBLE CROWN”; but Steve Pettit says it will be HEAVEN ITSELF!!! Folks, God's gift of eternal life is NOT an award or an exchange of sorts, it is a FREE GIFT (Romans 5:15-18). Heaven is not an award! It is our home, for all those who have CEASED from our own works (which Steve Pettit hasn't yet), and have RESTED solely in Jesus Christ (Hebrews 4:10-11). Running the Christian race to merit Heaven as an award is WORKS!!!

So according to Mr. Pettit, you cannot KNOW that you're saved immediately when you BELIEVE the Good News of Christ crucified, buried and risen. Pettit falsely claims that you won't know for sure that you've made it to Heaven until you've faithfully finished living the Christian life. That is Calvinism! Folks, that is damnable heresy, a works-based false plan of salvation (damnation), and not the free grace Gospel. When asked what "works" God requires to get to Heaven, here is what Jesus Himself said: 
"Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent" (John 6:28-29). 
I marvel that 99% of Baptists today are silent about BJU's apostasy; and even worse, Pensacola Christian College (PCC) sinfully bids them Godspeed at BJU, which makes PCC partaker of BJU's evil deeds (2nd John 1:11). RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!!

In Ezekiel 33:1-7, God warned the prophets that if they didn't WARN the people, God would hold the prophets responsible, and those prophets would have the people's blood on their hands. Well, bless God, I am WARNING everyone! I am sounding the trumpet of the Lord! Bob Jones University is of the Devil!!! Philippians 1:17b, "I am set for the defence of the Gospel."

Dear reader, in Luke 10:20 Jesus told us as believers to rejoice that our name is written in Heaven. That clearly implies that we CAN KNOW 100% presently that we are saved sure, certain and forever. Luke 10:20, “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” We CAN KNOW simply because God's gift of forgiveness of sins and eternal life is based upon GOD'S FAITHULNESS alone. Discipleship is based upon OUR FAITHFULNESS. Getting saved is God's department. We have no part in our own salvation except to get out of the way and let God do the saving, ALL OF IT, which is by faith alone in Jesus Christ!

Then after we get saved, there is a second decision that God wants every believer to eventually make, which is to follow Christ as our “Lord (Master). We don't make Jesus Lord, HE IS LORD (Romans 14:9). But we must, at some point in our Christian life, decide to willingly offer up our body as a living sacrifice to serve and honor God, which is our reasonable service (Romans 12:1). This is service, not salvation (Romans 12:1). This is discipleship (John 8:31), not sonship (John 1:12-13). To be saved we simply need to receive Jesus as our personal Savior (1st Timothy 4:10). But to please God as His child and lay up treasures in Heaven (Matthew 9:19-20), we must choose to serve Him.

I love what Pilgrim's Progress author John Bunyan said, and I will often repeat this quote, because I want everyone to learn it's truth:
“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)
I often marvel at the astute theological knowledge of John Bunyan, the faithful soulwinning preacher who spent 12 years in prison because he refused to stop preaching the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. How does that compare to today's rotten corrupt pastors like Steve Pettit, Marty Herron and John MacArthur, who get paid 6-digit salaries for poisoning people's minds with a false gospel? John Bunyan got paid nothing! Do you think Marty Herron would be willing to rot in prison for 12 years for his perverse Lordship Salvation? I think not.

Folks, we need to expose false teachers, not coddle and support them as does Pensacola Christian College (PCC). “Ichabod” (the glory of the Lord is departed) is written over the doors of PCC today. They have succumbed to apostasy, pulling on the same rope as the Devil instead of earnestly contending for the faith once delivered unto the saints (Jude 1:3). Sadly, PCC and BJU are all about making filthy lucre (careers). They are all about academics, woefully lacking God's compassion for sinful and hurting people. PCC sends their students to fellowship with BJU's students in sporting events. They are eating at the Devil's table! They hire each other's graduates, which is disgusting. BJU churches send their youth to PCC, and vise versa. RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!!

You Cannot Get Anybody Saved With A Corrupt Gospel

Acts 15:1-2 and 24, “And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved. When therefore Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and disputation with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas, and certain other of them, should go up to Jerusalem unto the apostles and elders about this question. ...Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:”

Our churches in America are in bog trouble nowadays. The Devil has successfully crept in hundreds of counterfeit Bible revisions, which attack the deity of Jesus, diminish His prominence, remove the Godhead, corrupt the meaning of repentance and how to be saved, and are secularizing the Holy Bible, turning it into a spiritual book instead of a theological book. The Antichrist when he comes will be a spiritual man, honoring “the 
God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not...” (Daniel 11:38b). I believe “fathers” here refers to the Jewish patriarchs, and the God of Israel. Thus, the coming Man of Sin (Antichrist, or “in place of Christ”) will likely be a Jew. He will worship New Age religion.

Because of all the corrupt Bible versions being published by the Devil, God's simple plan of salvation has been corrupted. Calvinism (a perversion of God's grace) has crept into most churches today, presenting getting saved as a lifelong process instead of a new birth. It is tragic that pastors and churches everywhere still support Bob Jones University, when they have gone full blown Calvinist in their doctrine. Calvinism is not the Gospel of free grace!!!

A Christian SHOULD Live For Christ;
But If He MUST, That Would Be Works;
And If He WILL, That Is Calvinism!

Everywhere I turn nowadays I see and hear falsehoods concerning how to get to Heaven. Out of curiosity, I recently typed: “How To Go To Heaven” into Google's search engine. I was saddened to see that Evangelist Billy Graham's ministry appeared at the top. So I went to view their webpage and was disgusted to find a false gospel...

We can’t earn salvation; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness. Then turn from your sins—that’s called repentance. Jesus Christ knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, your honesty. We suggest praying the following prayer to accept Christ as your Savior:

"Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen." [emphasis added]
What you have just read is another gospel, not what the Bible teaches. Nowhere in the inspired Scriptures (if you have a trustworthy King James Bible) are we taught to “turn from your sins” to be saved. This is a work! Turning away from sinning is in fact, keeping the law. What saith the Scripture? Romans 3:19-20, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 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.” The only purpose of God's Old Testament law in salvation is to give mankind THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN.

I have counseled over the decades with umpteen confused people, who said that for many years they refused to come to Christ to be saved, because they were falsely misled by some wicked preacher to think that God wouldn't save them, unless they were first willing to forsake their sinful bad habits. Dear friend, that is not God's free, easy and simple gift of eternal life. God is freely offering you a gift of forgiveness of sins and eternal life, based solely upon Christ's sacrifice upon the cross, by the blood that He shed for your sins and mine (1st Peter 1:18-19). God requires NOTHING from you to be saved except that you BELIEVE (put your hope, confidence, trust) in His only begotten Son, Jesus. 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.”

Pastor Steven Furtick in Charlotte, North Carolina, is very popular today around the country. Unfortunately, Pastor Furtick is a false prophet, preaching another gospel of having a relationship with Christ, inviting Jesus into your life, following Christ as “Lord” of your life, turn from your sins, count the cost and pay the price, live a lifestyle of repentance, run the race, confess Christ publicly, get water baptized, et cetera. These popular Satanic lies have infected nearly every church today, which are nowhere found in the inspired Word of God. These wicked false preachers completely ignore the plain teachings of the inspired Holy Scripture.

God specifically authored the Gospel of John to show humanity how to get to Heaven. In the book of John we find the word “believe” mentioned 88 times, but there is no mention of repenting, confessing, surrendering, following, having a relationship or anything else to be saved, except to BELIEVE ON HIM. John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.”

Where did all these preachers go astray? Where did they get all this garbage that we hear today, that to be saved you must:
  1. walk an aisle
  2. pray a prayer
  3. join a church, denomination or convention
  4. turn from your sins
  5. repent “of your sins”
  6. be willing to turn away from sin
  7. feel sorrow for your sins
  8. forsake a lifestyle of sinning
  9. be baptized in water
  10. speak in “tongues”
  11. turn over a new leaf
  12. ask Christ into your heart
  13. invite Jesus into your life
  14. surrender your entire personality to Christ
  15. surrender all
  16. live a holy life
  17. live a changed life
  18. give control of your life over to Christ
  19. faithfully run the race
  20. count the cost and pay the price
  21. live a lifestyle of repentance from sins
  22. turn away from the old life
  23. follow Jesus no matter what the cost
  24. make Jesus the “Lord” (Master) of your life
  25. be sorry for your sin
  26. confess Christ publicly
  27. keep the Sabbath Day
  28. keep God's Ten Commandments
  29. get rid of bad habits and vices
  30. ask Jesus into your heart
  31. have a religious experience
  32. feel hatred for sin
NONE of these things are required to get to Heaven. Yet, I can hardly listen to a sermon, or visit a church website, or watch a YouTube video, or hear a Bible college chapel service, or read a religious tract, without seeing these unbiblical additions to God's simple plan of salvation, which is by faith alone in the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen the third day (1st Corinthians 15:1-6).

It saddens my heart to hear preachers obscuring, confusing and corrupting the Gospel with all sorts of embellishments. The Bible says in 2nd Corinthians 4:3-4, “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. The Devil doesn't want lost sinners to get saved. Satan wants people to burn in the Lake of Fire with him. So the Devil blinds men's minds! How does he do this? Satan hinders people from getting saved by obscuring and hiding the Gospel of free grace.

Dear friend, there is only one Gospel, and it is plainly proclaimed by the Apostle Paul in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4:
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:”
In all my eight years of Bible college, I exclusively used the Roman's method to lead people to Christ, but I came to realize decades later that this religious tract can be dangerous! My big $64,000 question is: Why use the book of Romans to lead someone to Christ, when God specifically authored the Gospel of John to do that? “The Roman's Road” is popular method of presenting the Gospel, using only Scripture passages from Romans.

Please let me WARN YOU that the Roman's Road is a false plan of salvation if you leave out the Gospel, which according to 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 is Christ's DEATH on the cross for our sins, His BURIAL and bodily RESURRECTION from the dead three days later. Tragically, many versions of the Roman's Road tract that I have read DON'T even mention the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is an incomplete Gospel. It is not enough to believe that Christ died for your sins on the cross, you MUST also believe that Jesus raised up from the dead (1st Corinthians 15:14-17; 1st Thessalonians 4:14). I am not against using the “The Roman's Road,” but you need to understand that it is not the Gospel unless you include Christ's death on the cross, His burial and bodily resurrection three days later. This is “the Gospel” by which we are saved if we believe it. I thank God for the wonderful book of Romans, but remember, God specifically gave us the Gospel of John to be saved.

One of my biggest complaints against The Roman's Road method is that 100% of the time it ends with requiring a lost sinner to pray a sinner's prayer, which can easily confuse some people, as it did me for several years. I couldn't settle the assurance of my salvation, because I kept wondering if I left something out of my prayer at the time I was saved. I knew that Jesus is the Christ, who died on the cross for my sins, was buried and raised up physically three days later. But I overlooked all that simplicity, and focused on the prayer instead, because that is what every preacher had unbiblically told me to do... pray! Dear reader, I abandoned the sinner's prayer many, many years ago. In fact, Biblically, you DON'T need to pray any kind of prayer to be saved, you simply must BELIEVE ON HIM. John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.”

Oh, why oh why, do so many preachers feel compelled to complicate God's simple plan of salvation for mankind? YOU are a sinner dear friend. YOU deserve to burn in Hell, fire and damnation forever as punishment for your sins against a holy God. That mighty not set right with you, or make any sense, but that is only because you are not as holy and righteous as God, so you probably think going to Hell forever is unfair. But I assure you that it is what you and I deserve friend, as punishment for all of our own sins.

In the blessed Gospel of John we read in John chapter 3 that we are all sinners. We read in chapters 19 and 20 about Jesus' crucifixtion, burial and resurrection on Sunday. We read throughout the Gospel of John that the simple way to be saved is to BELIEVE ON HIM. 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. There is no requirement to pray a prayer, nor to surrender control of your life over to God, nor to follow Christ as Lord no matter what the cost, nor to forsake a lifestyle of sinning to be saved.

When Adam sinned, it made sense to his new carnal nature to DO SOMETHING to atone (to hide, cover) for his sins. So Adam sewed together some fig leaves, to cover his nakedness and shame. God rejected Adam's fig-leaf religion, and instead killed an innocent animal (which pictured the sinless innocent Lamb of God who was slain for our sins). So you see dear reader, you cannot cover up your sins with religion! You cannot impress God with following Christ, or having a relationship with Christ, or forsaking your sinful ways, in order to get to Heaven.

Listen it is utterly IMPOSSIBLE for any human being to turn away from your sins!!! Do you understand that? You may have once been as wicked as The Iceman (Richard Kuklinski, 1935-2006) serial killer in New Jersey, but found the Lord (Richard didn't). You may have started attending church, helping old ladies across the street, preaching about Jesus everywhere you went, doing many wonderful good works, and becoming the epitome of a good person! Yet, you would still split Hell wide open the second that your spirit and soul departed from your physical body (Hebrews 9:27; Luke 16:19-31). Isaiah 64:6 warns that man's best righteousness is filthy rags to God!

Admittedly, it sound really religious that to get to Heaven, a person must forsake the old sinful ways. I mean, how can you expect God to pardon you of your sins, when you have no intention to stop committing those sins? Right? This is how unsaved religious people foolishly think. But they fail to realize that NO ONE has ever turned away from their sinning. All you can do at best is TRY to clean up your life of sin, and make an effort to walk the narrow path of holy living to appease God's wrath. Burt dear friend, this is a false plan of salvation.

The ONLY thing that has, can or ever will appease the wrath of God (which is what the Bible word “propitiation” means in Romans 3:25, 1st John 2:2 and 1st John 4:10) is the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the propitiation for the sins of the whole world, to those who BELIEVE ON HIM. 1st John2:2, “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” John 3:36, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, God's wrath rests upon you. Be afraid, BE VERY AFRAID if that is you!!! Hebrews 10:31, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”

I could go on and on, to mention the names of literally hundreds of dangerous false preachers today (John MacArthur, Steve Pettit, Marty Herron, Gary Walton, Sam Horn, Chuck Phelps, Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, Franklin Graham, Adrian Rogers, Roland Rasmussen, Chip Ingram, William Lane Craig, Steven Furtick, Jack Chick, Unshackled, Liberty University, Southern Baptist Convention, Salvation Army, Keith Gomez, David W. Cloud, Charles G. Finney, Paris Reidhead) and other infidels who pervert the grace of God concerning how to be saved. All of these wicked preachers add to, corrupt and embellish God's simple plan of salvation. Since there is only one Gospel, someone is WRONG! ...
Galatians 1:6-7, “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.”
I contend that I am RIGHT, because I have the inspired King James Bible on my side (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). What verses can all those ungodly infidel preachers quote to support their damnable heresies? All they can do is quote obscure passages of Scripture, wresting them out of context to support their false doctrinal assertions, while completely ignoring clear passages of Scripture (i.e., the Gospel of John, and the Epistle of Galatians). 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. I am ready to be judged, because what I am preaching agrees with the Gospel of John (God's Gospel tract); but what Marty Herron and these other devils are preaching is NOT even in the ballpark of what the Holy Bible teaches. They have been warned, but they refuse to repent.

Here is another $64,000 question for you: How wrong on the Gospel can a person be and still be saved? In Acts 15:1 a religious group came to Jerusalem preaching that you cannot be saved without keeping the law of Moses, specifically being circumcized (for men). Were they saved? No! Acts 15:24 confirms this!

In the Epistle of Galatians a similar religious group had infiltrated the churches of Galatia, infecting them with the idea that faith in Christ must include keeping the law of Moses. Were they saved? No, not the one's who failed to heed Paul's Gospel (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). The Apostle Paul sternly rebuked them for believing another gospel in Galatians 1:6-9, calling them bewitched in Galatians 3:1-3, telling them they had fallen from grace in Galatians 5:4 and that they would reap what they had wickedly sown in Galatians 6:7.

Many ignorant preachers praise Martin Luther (1483-1546) as a born-again believer, but Mr. Luther preached the heresy of Sacramental Salvation his entire life! Luther plainly preached that no one can get to Heaven without being Water Baptized and partaking of Holy Communion. Was Martin Luther saved? No way!

Evangelist Charles G. Finney openly denied the imputed righteousness of God to the sinner. Was Charles Finney saved? No way!

How wrong can a person be on the Gospel and still be saved? I contend that the moment even the slightest bit of trust is taken away from Christ alone, and placed upon something else, that person has never been saved at all. You cannot get to Heaven by partial faith in Christ, plus turning away from sinful ways. I have heard stupid preachers galore, attempt to justify their wicked heresy, by claiming that you cannot turn TO Christ without also turning AWAY from something. That is true in a sense, but not in the sense that they use it. It is true that a person must turn AWAY from unbelief in order TO trust Christ as Savior. But it is not true that a person must turn away from their own selfish life, turn away from willful sinning, turn away from maintaining control over one's own lifestyle. As you can see clearly, this form of errant thinking by false teachers can be utilized to JUSTIFY ANYTHING!!!

But we know Biblically, that since the ONLY sin that can prevent a person from going to Heaven is UNBELIEF, then it is UNBELIEF that is the only thing from which you must repent (change your mind) to be saved. The repentant thief on the cross was being crucified for his stealing and sinful crimes, but he simply BELIEVED on Jesus for who He claimed to be, the Christ, the only begotten Son of God, the dear Savior, and that thief was saved!!! That thief didn't repent of his sins, he repented from his unbelief to trust the Savior. This truth is bared out again and again throughout the Scriptures.

In Genesis 15:6 (cf. Romans 4:4-7) we read that Abraham was justified in God's sight by faith alone, and not be repenting of his sinful deeds, “And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.” Salvation has ALWAYS been by simple faith alone in Christ. Acts 10:43, “To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.” No one was ever saved by works (i.e., keeping Moses' law) in the Old Testament. Kindly said, Peter S. Ruckman is a false teacher in this important doctrinal matter (as is William P. Grady up in Michigan, and Robert Breaker down in Florida). Heretics abound nowadays!!! Many preachers love and admire Pastor Peter Ruckman, as do I, but I will NEVER admire any man enough to overlook his heresies! My foremost loyalty is to God!!!

Dear reader, in closing, you simply cannot lead a lost sinner to Christ with a corrupt gospel. If you think that a person cannot continue living in willful sin and be saved, then you are woefully mistaken and not saved yourself. Repent of your false repentance and trust only in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ. CEASE from your own works, and REST only in Christ alone (Hebrews 4:10-11). That is the ONLY way to get to Heaven!!!

It is not a coincidence that over 95% of preachers today are preaching another gospel, because the Devil intentionally hides the Gospel to prevent sinners from coming to the light of THE TRUTH of the Gospel, lest they should be gloriously saved by faith alone without works (2nd Corinthians 4:3-4). So our job as believers is to keep the Gospel simple and uncluttered.

Pensacola Christian College Is The Dead Church At Sardis

Revelation 3:1-3, “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. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

The church at Sardis was backslidden! They were spiritually “dead” the Bible says. Sardis was one of the oldest and best defended cities in the region, in the wealthy capital of the ancient kingdom of Lydia (which is part of the country of Turkey today). The church at Sardis was not pleasing to the Lord. They were dropping the ball for God, not preaching the Gospel, merely going through the motions of playing church. I can't think of a better example of Pensacola Christian College (PCC) today than the backslidden church at Sardis in the Bible.

Jesus unapologetically condemns the lifeless condition of the Sardian church: I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead” (Revelation 3:2). Pensacola Christian College and their Campus Church has a popular name worldwide. PCC started in 1974, two years after Hyles-Anderson College where I thankfully graduated. I am so glad that I didn't attend a lifeless hellhole like PCC, learning to do much but accomplish little for God. There is no Holy Spirit power at work in the PCC camp today. I attended their church for the summer of 2021, and it was dead spiritually. There is no door-to-door soulwinning at PCC. They haven't even begun to reach the city of Pensacola with the Gospel. You can drive down the street by PCC, and view their city blocks of real estate, but as a religious cult, they are locked away in seclusion, alienated from the local community. There is no bus ministry.

Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) said it best about PCC:
“The pastors have destroyed the churches, and they've been trained by people that have never built churches, and they have no compassion.” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “Many Pastors Have Destroyed My Vineyard
When I attended Campus Church in 2021, Pastor Jeff Redlin treated me like garbage as a divorced person, showing no love, no compassion, no understanding, no prayer and no concern for my hurting soul. He horribly criticized my website ministry and made me feel unwanted as a divorce man at Campus Church. Psalms 142:4, “I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.” So, of course I left Campus Church hurt and frustrated, and I never heard from Pastor Jeff Redlin again (he has my email)!

You'd think if anyone in this world had love and compassion for divorced people, it would be a pastor; but that is rarely the case I find. Most pastors are self-righteous jerks, condemning the fallen, and so also does their congregation follow their horrible example. It is sadly true that many churches are cults today, where the people blindly follow and support their pastors, no matter who rotten m, wrong or corrupt he becomes!

I am tired of sanctimonious carnal Christians going around on social media posting stupid messages about: letting it go, loving the unloving, being kind to the unkind, and throwing that crap in other people's faces who have been hurt by carnal church leaders. The truth is that bad carnal pastors need to identified and exposed for who they are, rotten phonies who serve only their belly (Romans 16:17-18). If I attend a church and the pastor mistreats me, or I don't feel like he gives a damn if I come back, he can expect a negative review to appear on social media within a week or two!!! That is my right as a child of God, an American and a consumer. The world is going to Hell because of passivist believers who think it is “unkind to expose bad pastors, expose doctrinal error and speak out against evil (Ephesians 5:11; Titus 1:9-14).

Those of my web visitors who know me (and in the last year, my new eight blogs and my grateful blog readers), you all know that I can be sharp in my tone and words at times while expressing myself. But I do not make apologies for being a sincere man with a big heart, and for having deep feelings, and that I express myself passionately with zeal and strong words. That is who I am! No pastor needs to fear my pen, as long as I know he cares about me as a hurting human being, and loves me unconditionally as a divorced man with God's love. People just want to be loved. Love is what I look for in a pastor and church.

God knows that I NEVER intend to be cruel or mean, but simply try to get people's attention. Mrs. Beverly Hyles once said on her blog, which is still available to read today, that hurting people hurting people. I have been hurt by many pastors, who threw me under the bus for befriending them with THE TRUTH that the new Bibles are corrupted by Satan, and Lordship Salvation is a perversion of God's grace.

PCC has sadly drifted away from the Gospel, now preaching in 2021 that, and I quote from the Foundation's Class at Campus Church: “Repentance is a change of mind which produces a change of behavior.” No sirs, that is heresy! A changed life has NOTHING to do with God's free gift of eternal life. You get saved by resting in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ (1st Corinthians 15:1-4), and then as a child of God the indwelling Holy Spirit begins to convict you about the sins in your life (Romans 8:9; 1st John 3:24). It is a false gospel to associate a changed life in any way with getting saved.

Pastor Jack Hyles gives an excellent illustration of this truth in his sermon called: “Your Salvation Did Not Change You A Bit.” In the sermon Dr. Hyles explains that a former strip joint owner felt convicted week after week, as First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana (FBCH) soulwinners passed by his filthy business. In time, the business closed and a couple years passed. One day Pastor Hyles received a sincere letter from the former strip joint owner, explaining how he felt convicted every time he saw people from church sharing the Gospel. The owner had been saved, and was now preparing to become a preacher. He offered to sell the building to FBCH and the church purchased the building. Now even though ownership had been transferred to the church, the building itself was still a strip joint inside. It needed to be renovated.

Likewise, when I got saved at age 13, my body, soul and spirit changed ownership from Satan to God; but I was still the same filthy, dirty, ungodly sinner that I was a moment before. In God's sight I was sinless, having Christ's imputed righteousness (Philippians 3:9); but my life needed to be renewed by the Word of God. John 17:17 says that we are sanctified by the truth, and the Word of God is truth! You see, I was saved by faith alone, and ownership was transferred from the Devil to God when I got saved. But my building (flesh) was still a mess. I needed to be converted, which happened as I had a new hunger to read and study God's inspired Word. I attended a good Bible-believing church and learned the Bible. I heard Bible preaching at church, and later I attended Bible college at age 18, which all helped me to grow in the grace of Jesus Christ (2nd Peter 3:18).

I've said all this to refute the heresy at Campus Church that repentance results in a change of behavior, it does not! Repentance only results in a change of ownership. After you're saved, your life needs to be converted (i.e., renovated), which takes time and requires that you desire the sincere milk of the Word (1st Peter 2:2), and that you present your body a living sacrifice to serve God (Romans 12:1-2). Growth is not automatic. The church today has utterly failed to mentor new believers with the Word of God, leaving them to languish on their own. Consequently, many of them never mature to win souls themselves, which is what the Parable Of The Sower And The Seeds is about in Luke 8:11-15. The problem is not that they have never repented, as the perverse Lordship Salvation crowd says, but that they have never been mentored properly. I speak this to the shame of Campus Church and PCC.

The church at Sardis had a good reputation, but they were spiritually lifeless. The Lord commanded them to repent (change their mind). The issue is not sinful behavior in the church. The Bible does not mention their sins. The Bible says they failed to do the things they had received. They likely weren't going soulwinning. They likely weren't baptizing new converts. Jesus tells them: “Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent.” They had drifted away from what a church is supposed to be, a vineyard to win the lost to Christ. The church at Sardis may have focused on education, like PCC.

They probably stopped contending for the faith. PCC has NEVER contended for the Christian faith. Since they opened their doors in 1974, the only thing Rebekah Horton ever fought against was Dr. Kent Hovind. She helped get him convicted to 10 years in prison, testifying against him at the request of an ungodly feminist judge in Florida. Kent Hovind is an alumni of PCC. Really great people at PCC, huh? She took vengeance upon Kent Hovind, who preached against them over tax issues in the 1990's. What Rebekah Horton did was wicked, testifying against her own Christian brother (1st Corinthians 6:1-8. Rebekah defrauded her Christian brother, assisting a wicked, perverse and corrupt government.

Jesus commands the church at Sardis to repent, to strengthen what remains and is about to die. God told them to WAKE UP!!! Pensacola Christian College needs to WAKE UP!!! They need to fire Jeff Redlin. I will never return to the PCC camp until Jeff Redlin is either gone, or he humbly contacts me to make peace (which he is too proud to do). PCC is only concerned about going on the defensive, and not reaching out to people who have been deeply hurt and wounded by their lack of compassion, woeful lack of concern and carnal attitudes at PCC. They are cowards at PCC and Campus Church. Jeff Redlin needs to be humbled.

I wouldn't give you a dime for the calloused, cold-hearted attitudes of the PCC camp today. They buddy-buddy with the Calvinist Bob Jones University crowd. PCC students compete in intercollegiate sports with the BJU camp. What they ought to be doing is boycotting BJU until they stop preaching Lordship Salvation!!! PCC and BJU graduates send new students to each other's Bible colleges. Why is PCC treating the rattlesnakes in the BJU camp with kid gloves? Right doctrine matters!!! It really does.

Lordship Salvation is not an acceptable optional alternative to the Gospel, it is dangerous poison!!! 2nd Corinthians 11:6, “But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things. The wicked devils in the Bob Jones University camp who preach Lordship Salvation must be identified and exposed for what they are, wolves in sheep's clothing (Matthew 7:1-15). ...

The Danger Of Leaning Upon Your Own Understanding

Proverbs 3:5-7, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.”

I am alarmed at all the false teachings today concerning how to get to Heaven. The churches have absolutely been flooded with damnable false doctrines. Everywhere we turn nowadays—whether it be the churches, Bible colleges, missionaries, ministry websites, YouTube videos, religious tracts, et cetera—we are finding utter heresy concerning God's plan of salvation.

One of the most popular false doctrines today is that you must “turn from your sins” to be saved. Not one verse in the inspired King James Bible teaches to forsake sinful behavior to be saved. Sincere but corrupt men invented that false doctrine. A common counter debate that I hear from the proponents of the wrong repentance heresy is: “So you think a person can just get saved, and then go out and live like the Devil.” Yes, that is exactly THE TRUTH! Romans 5:20 says that where sin did abound, GRACE DID MUCH MORE ABOUND!!! As believers, we fall IN GRACE, never FROM GRACE! Christ's blood is our safety net, so that we can NEVER lose God's gift of eternal life. Our behavior has no effect on our salvation; but rather, we are securely saved solely because of our faith in what Jesus did for us through Calvary's cross.

Our text passage from Proverbs 3:5-7 tells us to, LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING. Sadly, all of these false teachers today on the plan of salvation, are sinfully leaning upon their OWN UNDERSTANDING. In their limited human thinking, false prophets cannot understand how someone can be saved, and yet continue living in gross immorality with impunity in God's sight. But dear friend, what those ignorant false teachers don't know, and don't care to know, is that God is not an absent parent. When a person becomes a child of God by faith alone, He indwells (comes to live inside) and seals that person with His blessed Holy Spirit (1st Corinthians 3:16-17; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14). The Holy Spirit chastens every child of God (Hebrews 12:6-8).

So, the counter allegation that those who preach a free grace Gospel think people can get saved and live like the Devil is false. I believe that salvation is by God's grace through faith alone. You DON'T have to turn away from sinful ways, nor even be willing to turn away from your sins, to be saved. Yet, I do not think God gives anyone permission to continue living in open sin. To do so always brings consequences. Can a saved person live like the Devil and still be saved? Yes, of course, because Jesus died for our sins on the cross. That makes us SAFE in Christ. This is the danger of leaning upon one's own understanding. You will always end up corrupting God's simple plan of salvation.

“What? You means I can still go to Heaven and live a wild life of sin and wickedness?” Yes, of course you can, and the Bible is full of examples of saints who did just that (Esau, Ishmael, Samson, Lot, David, Solomon, Demas, et cetera). You see, the proponents of the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation, Calvinism and Wrong Repentance are leaning unto their OWN UNDERSTANDING!!! They don't understand that when someone gets saved, God starts working on that person (Philippians 2:13), and begins to sanctify them with the Word of God (John 17:17). Proverbs 3:12, “For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.”

Dear reader, false knowledge is more dangerous than ignorance. The churches today are filled with FALSEHOODS! The apostate Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has 45,000 member churches, which all officially preach the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation. They all falsely preach that you must “turn from your sins” to be saved. It is wickedness!!!

I am sick and tired of foolish preachers citing Dr. John R. Rice (1895-1980) as a secondary authority on the Scripture! Folks, Dr. Rice was WRONG to say that people must “turn from sin with all your heart to get to Heaven. Dr. Rice preached false doctrine!!! However, I firmly believe that John R. Rice was saved, because he clearly explained that he DIDN'T think a person must stop living in sin to be saved. Dr. Rice simply believed that a person who trusts in Jesus Christ HAS turned from their sin by doing do. Dr. Rice only taught ONE STEP to be saved, which is to BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (which automatically includes repentance). So Dr. Rice was saved, but wrong to use the phrase turn from sin, since the inspired King James Bible NEVER uses those words in regard to salvation.

What is being preached today in tens of thousands of churches is VERY different. For example: Evangelist Ray Comfort preaches that you get to Heaven by “living a lifestyle of repentance,” and then “second (his wording), trust Christ.

Bob Jones University president Dr. Steve Pettit false preaches that you cannot just accept Christ and that's it! Dr. Pettit says in addition you must run the race faithfully to get to Heaven. That is damnable Calvinism, not a free grace Gospel. These wicked false prophets are leaning upon their own understanding, instead of simply TRUSTING THE LORD as Proverbs 3:5-7 tell us to do! You get saved by trusting the Lord (i.e., receiving Jesus as your personal Savior). You don't need to turn from your sinning. You don't need to surrender your entire personality, will and life to follow and serve Christ. You don't need to give your life to Jesus, nor invite Him into your life, nor do anything other than simply TRUST HIM. 

Pastor Marty Herron is a major offender, who preaches damnable heresy. Sadly, Pastor Herron ruined and corrupted the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam for nearly 20 years, the spiritual damage of which still perpetuates today throughout Micronesia. One sinner destroyeth much good the Bible says. Ecclesiastes 9:18, “Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good.” There is no pervert like the Gospel pervert!

Lest you think this is a trivial matter, please read again the Satanic false gospel of Dr. Steve Pettit (cult leader at Bob Jones University since 2014). Dr. Pettit elaborates further on the BJU's camp's counterfeit gospel. Marty Herron is a BJU graduate, where Dr. John MacArthur also attended for a couple years. BJU officially preaches the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation.

Tragically, Marty Herron is a hellbound infidel who is corrupt on the Gospel. I say that kindly but truthfully on the authority of the Holy Bible. I heard Pastor Herron with my own two ears preach at the Harvest Baptist Church in 2014. Pastor Herron errantly said to hundreds of people: “It is not enough to admit that you are a sinner to get to Heaven, you must also forsake a lifestyle of sinning.” No Sir, that is wrong! That is another gospel which cannot produce the new birth in Jesus Christ. Galatians 1:6-9 warns that anyone who preaches another gospel is accursed by God, even if it is an angel (demon). Mormon founder, Joseph Smith (1805-1844), claimed that an angel gave him the Mormon plan of salvation. According to the Word of God, in Galatians 1:8-9, Joseph Smith is a liar accursed by God, and the demon (fallen angel) who gave it to him is also accursed.

The Bible is so simple and clear. Proverbs 3:5-7, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.” The way to Heaven is to TRUST in the Lamb of God. John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

So where in the world do thousands of lying preachers today (most of whom are bad pastors), get the following heretical ideas, that a person must do to be saved:
  1. walk an aisle
  2. pray a prayer
  3. join a church, denomination or convention
  4. turn from your sins
  5. repent of your sins
  6. be willing to turn away from sin
  7. feel sorrow for your sins
  8. forsake a lifestyle of sinning
  9. be baptized in water
  10. speak in “tongues”
  11. turn over a new leaf
  12. ask Christ into your heart
  13. invite Jesus into your life
  14. surrender your entire personality to Christ
  15. surrender all
  16. live a holy life
  17. live a changed life
  18. give control of your life over to Christ
  19. faithfully run the race
  20. count the cost and pay the price
  21. live a lifestyle of repentance from sins
  22. turn away from the old life
  23. follow Jesus no matter what the cost
  24. make Jesus the “Lord” (Master) of your life
  25. be sorrow for your sin
  26. confess Christ publicly
  27. keep the Sabbath Day
  28. keep God's Ten Commandments
  29. get rid of bad habits and vices
  30. ask Jesus into your heart
  31. have a religious experience
  32. feel hatred for sin
NONE of these things are required to get to Heaven. Yet, I can hardly listen to a sermon, or visit a church website, or watch a YouTube video, or hear a Bible college chapel service, or read a religious tract, without seeing these unbiblical additions to God's simple plan of salvation, which is by faith alone in the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen the third day (1st Corinthians 15:1-6).

It saddens my heart to hear preachers obscuring, confusing and corrupting the Gospel with all sorts of embellishments. The Bible says in 2nd Corinthians 4:3-4, “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. The Devil doesn't want lost sinners to get saved. Satan wants people to burn in the Lake of Fire with him. So the Devil blinds men's minds! How does he do this? Satan hinders people from getting saved by obscuring and hiding the Gospel of free grace.

The Wickedness Of Today's Pastors

1st Timothy 1:4-7, “Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do. Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.” 2nd Timothy 2:1-5, “Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.” Revelation 3:2, “Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.”

I carefully selected these three passages of Scripture to write this important blog. The Apostle Paul write a letter to his younger protégé Timothy, warning him about false prophets who don't understand what they are trying to teach, despite their sincere desire to be teachers in the ministry. There is nothing new under the sun. The same problem exists today that has existed for millenniums, which is woefully ignorant but sincere men who desire to be Bible teachers. They mean well, but do far more damage than good. Sadly, the churches today are filled which such incompetent leaders, who don't understand God's simple plan of salvation.

The Apostle Peter identified the same problem...
2nd Peter3:15-18, “And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.”
False knowledge is far more dangerous than ignorance! The Devil has been in the Bible publishing business since 1881, the year that Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort introduced their perverse Greek New Testament to the world. One of the first groups to utilize these new corrupt texts were the Jehovah's Witness cult. Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) was right—If you've seen one Westcott and Hort Bible, you've seen 'em all. You can see what Dr. Hyles meant in this comparison of Matthew 8:2, Psalms 12:7 and also 1st Timothy 3:16 in the modern Bible versions as compared to the inspired King James Bible.

The problem is that most people today are listening to internet and TV preachers, instead of searching the Scriptures as Jesus said in John 5:39, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” In 2nd Peter 3:17 the Apostle Peter said to GROW IN GRACE and the KNOWLEDGE OF JESUS CHRIST. Today's churchgoers aren't growing in God's GRACE and the knowledge OF CHRIST. They're growing in the knowledge of new-evangelicalism, the knowledge of Westcott and Hort's corrupt Bible perversions and in the knowledge of John MacArthur's deadly Calvinism! If people would just search the Scriptures instead of listening to foolish ministers, they wouldn't be misled.
“It is impossible to enslave mentally or socially a Bible-reading people. The principles of the Bible are the groundwork of human freedom.” —Horace Greeley (1811-1872)
Everybody is quick to run out to their nearest religious bookstore, or get out their credit card to order online, books and videos from all these money-hungry nitwit preachers today, who are wrong on repentance and therefore, the Gospel!
“The fella who knows what repentance is knows it's included in believing.” —Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995)
The Apostle John exhorts all saints in Revelation 3:2, “Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.” Pastor Bob Gray Sr. is right: “We are one generation from losing it all!”

The inspired King James Bible exhorts every believer to, “Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die...” (Revelation 3:b). 
  • The Greek word for “watchful” is gregoreuo, which means, “to keep awake, that is, watch.”
  • The Greek word for “strengthen” is sterizo, which means, “to set fast, that is, (literally) to turn resolutely in a certain direction, or (figuratively) to confirm.”
Hence, John is teaching us as believers to stay awake. Sadly, most clergy and laymen today are asleep behind the wheel. 1st Corinthians 15:34, “Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.”

To “strengthen” means to continually reiterate the fundamental doctrines upon which Christianity is built. We don't hear enough Bible preaching and teaching these days about the Godhead (Trinity), deity of Jesus (He is almighty God), Christ's physical bodily resurrection, the literal blood of Jesus sprinkled upon the heavenly Mercy Seat in the presence of God, Jesus' virgin birth, Jesus' sinless life, Christ's substitutionary (vicarious) death on the cross in our place, the reality of a burning Hell with literal fire where all Christ-rejecters will spend eternity in torments, the verbal (word for word) inspiration of the King James Bible, salvation by grace through childlike faith alone without works, and other foundational Bible truths. We must confirm these great fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith, regularly, from pulpits all across the world, and indoctrinate those whom we influence for God (Matthew 28:19-20).

The Wickedness Of Today's Indifferent Pastors Concerning Doctrinal Error

Having said that, I am utterly alarmed and disgusted with pastors today! I am a firm believer in mentioning names, so people can be warned about false prophets and bad pastors who don't really care about hurting people, like Pastor Jeff Redlin of Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College. The man doesn't know how to treat people right. Mr. Redlin is abusive. He mistreated me because someone sent him my website ministry to slander me in July of 2021. No godly pastor would have acted upon malicious slander, but Pastor Redlin sinfully did, berating me for contending for the faith. Pastor Redlin falsely accused me of “finding weaknesses” in preachers, after he read my articles refuting the Satanic Bob Jones University camp for their Lordship Salvation, Calvinism, Wrong Repentance and Devil's Bibles!!!

Dear reader, something is VERY WRONG with the Pensacola Christian College (PCC) camp today! The PCC camp today is A.W.O.L. from the battle of the ages! They just want to be positive and make money, while never taking a stand against anything evil, heretical, false or immoral going on in other Bible colleges or churches.

A perfect example is Pastor Sean Quinlan. I attended the Lighthouse Baptist Church on Guam for the year of 2018. Not once did Pastor Quinlan ask m to join the church. Not once did he offer to pray with me. Not once did he express any concern or love toward me and my family. The selfish jerk couldn't have cared less about anybody except himself! Jesus said that a man speaks out of the abundance of his heart . Luke 6:45, “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

One evening I was sitting in front of the church by the entrance, where church members normally gathered to fellowship. I was sharing some Bible truths about Luke 16:19-31 with a man I knew from church named Bill. I liked Bill and we talked about the Bible from time to time. That evening I was speaking about the rich man in Hell and Lazarus who went to Paradise. I got on the topic of corrupt Bible versions and mentioned that Bob Jones University (BJU) is promoting corruptible seed” today. I wasn't even speaking with Pastor Quinlan at all, but as he often did, he was eavesdropping on my conversations, being nosy. 

So, Sean Quinlan became angry at me for mentioning BJU. He made some ridiculous accusation about me usurping his authority as the pastor of his church. I apologized and said that it was not my attention. Folks, Sean Quinlan is wrong! There is no pastoral “authority” in any church! The only authority is the inspired Word of God. As corrupt as Dr. John MacArthur is on the Gospel, he is 100% correct that pastors HAVE NO AUTHORITY!!! Pastor Quinlan has ZERO authority, but he foolishly thinks that he does. ONLY THE WORD OF GOD HAS AUTHORITY!!! No pastor has any authority beyond the Scripture. No pastor can exceed what is written in the Scripture (and if any man does, he is a cult leader).

Sadly, Sean Quinlan is sinfully arrogant, thinking that he has power to silence my opinion to expose false teachers in the rotten Bob Jones camp!!! This is not communist North Korea! This is not community China folks! Sean Quinlan is part of the corrupt PCC mentality today, which adheres to a cultish Roman Catholic style heresy of hierarchical power within the church. Campus Church is a cult in that regards at Pensacola Christian College, elevating their pastors above the Word of God. Certainly they would never concede to such an allegation, but their arrogance evidences that I speak THE TRUTH.

In 2018, after Pastor Quinlan berated me for exposing BJU as the Alexandrian Cult, I told him that the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is preaching the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation. At first he defended Harvest, literally calling them: “Our sister church!” I was sickened when he said that, associating Harvest with the Lighthouse Baptist Church on Guam. I then kindly told Pastor Quinlan that Harvest Baptist Church preaches the falsehood of Calvinism, and were damning people to Hell with a counterfeit plan of salvation. Again, to my horror, he said: “What Harvest does is none of our business!” I rebuked him sharply for saying such a foolish thing, as Titus 1:9-14 teaches, because of Quinlan's wickedness to bid Godspeed to a Satanic religious cult, under the guise of being a Baptist church (2nd John 1:11).

Pastor Quinlan was belligerent, carnally-minded, a complete jerk and then accused me of having no class. What an ungodly person! At that point I told him that he would never see me again, yelling out as I went to my car: “SHAME ON YOU!!!” I have no regrets for rebuking a darned fool and upholding THE TRUTH. Sean Quinlan is a wicked person the Bible says. Proverbs 24:24, “He that saith unto the wicked, Thou are righteous; him shall the people curse, nations shall abhor him:” The ungodly pastors of the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam are wicked pastors!!!

Pastor Sean Quinlan calls the infidel Bob Jones University camp “righteous,” choosing rather to ignore their damnable preaching of Lordship Salvation (i.e., Calvinism), than to REBUKE THEM SHARPLY as the Bible commands, that they might be sound in the faith:
Titus 1:9-14, “Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
If you are not aware of what BJU teaches, please read this frightening Calvinist garbage which Dr. Steve Pettit preaches to their 2,700 faculty and students at BJU. Sadly, because most Baptists today are succumbing to Calvinism, the remaining doctrinally sound churches are increasingly reluctant to speak out against them, slowly accepting the corrupt churches. This is what has happened to Pensacola Christian College (PCC). Instead of Biblically exposing and sharply rebuking the rotten Calvinist BJU camp, PCC is hobnobbing with them, exchanging new students, hiring each other's graduates, and disregarding their doctrinal differences on the plan of salvation. Consequently, PCC is changing for the worst. John Wesley said it best:
“What one generation tolerates, the next generation will embrace!” —Evangelist John Wesley
Sadly, Pensacola Christian College are flushing themselves down the toilet with Bob Jones University cult. Evil triumphs when good men do nothing! Calvinism is evil. Lordship Salvation is evil. False repentance (aka, turn from your sins to be saved) is evil. The Devil's corrupt Bibles are evil. Indifference regarding these issues is evil. Tragically, Pastors' Sean Quinlan and Jeff Redlin couldn't care less about right doctrine. They will lie and claim that they do, but if they really cared about these truthful things, then neither of them would have sinfully rebuked me for contending for the faith.

In 2018, while I attended the Lighthouse Baptist Church on Guam, Pastor Sean Quinlan shamefully accused me of being “obsessed over the Bible.” Buster, you better believe that I am OBSESSED over the Holy Bible (Psalms 119:139-140). My hero of the faith, Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001), rightly called the war over the inspiration of the Holy Bible: “THE BATTLE OF THE AGES (courageously preached in 1994 at the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana). I also made the following 4 hour movie of the same title, to help educate believers on this critically important issue...

(a humble movie for my blessed Savior Jesus, by David J. Stewart)

The wicked Pensacola Christian College (PCC) camp want me to be quiet, stop finding (what Jeff Redlin foolishly considers) mere “weaknesses” in other preachers. Sean Quinlan thinks I am obsessed over the Bible, and he says it is none of our business if other churches are preaching damnable heresy, sending souls to the Lake of Fire. WELL I'M SPEAKING OUT!!!

I do not enjoy exposing bad pastors, but as David said in 1st Samuel 17:29b, “Is there not a cause?” Yes, there is a cause! False bibles blind lost sinners from seeing the light of THE TRUTH of the Gospel of free grace. You cannot be born-again from corruptible seed. 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.” The inspired Word of God is INCORRUPTIBLE!!! Don't you dare tell me that our great omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing), omnisapient (all-wise), omnibenevolent (all-loving) and omnipresent (all-present) God was too impotent to preserve every Word of the Bible for us today in 2022. 

Jesus quoted Deuteronomy 8:3 from the Old Testament in Matthew 4:2, But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. That means we must have an EVERY WORD Bible somewhere on earth today in 2022, since we need EVERY WORD of God to live by. Since all the English Bibles all say something different, common sense tells us that they absolutely CANNOT all be God's inspired Word! I believe the King James Bible to be that preserved and inspired Word (Psalms 12:6-7). What would have been the purpose of God giving His perfect, incorruptible, infallible, INSPIRED Words to humanity, if those Words later became corrupted, mishandled by sinfully flawed men? Think about that. There would have been no reason for God to inspire the Words in the first place.

And let me stop here, because different people have many different ideas of what is meant by the word inspiration.” Bible corrupters say that “inspired” only refers to the ORIGINAL autographs of the Bible. Since we don't have any of those original documents today, the Bible corrupting business tell us that there is no perfect or inspired Holy Bible today. They say that AT BEST all we have is a corrupted, flawed, and reasonably non-tempered with text. They use this type of insane reasoning to justify have 900 English Bible versions today! Yes, 900!!!

But I don't agree with them! I believe inspiration means something entirely different. I think the word “inspired” in 2nd Timothy 3:16  simply means that they are God's Words (literally, God breathed). God gave His Words to holy men of old (Hebrews 1:1-2). That is, God took sinful men and made them holy, and then used them as pens to write His Word. You can call that Mechanical Dictation if you'd like, but that is how we got God's Word. The Holy Spirit moved upon the writers to pen God's Word, one word at a time, just as God wanted it written.

Therefore, I believe that we DO have a perfectly inspired Holy Bible today in the English language, which is the inspired King James Bible. Although there have been numerous updated editions since the year 1611, there has been no new translation since 1611, and there never will be in my humble opinion. I believe that EVERY WORD in the beloved King James Bible is accurate and sound in doctrine. If it's not, then where is the Bible today? If we do not have a perfect and inspired Bible in 2022, then God lied in Psalms 12:6-7, “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” This is why ALL of the Devil's modern corrupt Bible revisions REMOVE God's promise from this verse!!! They had to change and remove this passage, because it exposes the Bible corrupting industry today! If Psalms 12:7 be true, then WE CAN ONLY HAVE ONE TRUE BIBLE IN ANY PARTICULAR LANGUAGE!!!

You simply cannot talk good sense to most of today's pastors, who are incompetent, because they are proud, arrogant and stubborn to repent of their errors and instead heed THE TRUTH. Proverbs 12:17, “He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.” I told THE TRUTH at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam in 2014 and was forced to leave by their ungodly Bob Jones College graduate pastors! I had attended Harvest Baptist Church on Guam for an entire year. I made many friends. I loved my church family and didn't want to leave, but their wicked pastors resented THE TRUTH that I placed directly into their hands.

Evangelist Tom Ferrell (1952-2021) rightly said: “A friend helps a friend to see.” Ironically, I heard Tom Ferrell say that truth on Harvest's KHMG 88.1 FM radio station on Guam. Go figure! They don't even heed their own advice at Harvest! Their wicked pastors literally called Pastors' Jack Hyles, Al Lacy and me “a cult” when I tried to help them see! Harvest is the accursed cult (Galatians 1:6-9). Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” The fastest way to get kicked out of churches and sent for therapy today is to simply TELL THE TRUTH!!!

I agree with these helpful words by Dr. Curtis Hutson (1934-1995):
“You'll even change your mind about repentance if you get saved. You are going to have to repent about your idea of repentance to be saved. Because if you have felt repentance is reformation, or turning from sin, and you're going to turn from sin to get saved, then you're not going to get saved until you change your mind about that idea, and decide that you're saved by the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ on the cross. Then you've repented over your repentance!” —Pastor Curtis Hutson
My preacher friend, and former faithful pastor of the Longview Baptist Temple church in Texas, Dr. Bob Gray Sr., gets Bible repentance 100% accurate:
“Repentance means to change your mind—change your mind—change your mind about how you want to get to Heaven, to what God says you've got to do to get to Heaven. If you've got to repent of all your sins, you're still headed for Hell tonight.”
SOURCE: Pastor Bob Gray Sr., a quote from the awesome MP3 sermon, Why You Should Be A Part Of A Growing Church
Yes, I fully agree! Dear reader, most of today's pastors have been deceived by the Devil concerning Bible repentance. The reason why is because preachers are foolishly leaning upon their OWN UNDERSTANDING, instead of trusting the Lord. Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Instead of simply acknowledging the plain and clear inspired Word of God, many preachers today are foolishly leaning upon their own understanding, mishandling the law doctrinally. They are not using the law lawfully. That is, they are not using the Old Testament law the way it was intended by God to be used.

Most Pastors Today DON'T Know How To Use God's Law

In the factual account of Jesus meeting the rich young ruler (this story appears in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke), the rich young man asks Jesus: Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” (Luke 18:18). Jesus reminds him of all the Ten Commandments. Jesus discerned that the young man was self-righteous, boasting of his own goodness. ...
Luke 18:20-23, “Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother. And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up. Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me. And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.”
Please don't miss this! Jesus WASN'T giving this young man a plan of salvation. Jesus was using the law the way it was INTENDED to be used. We learn what the purpose of the Old Testament law is in Romans 3:19-20, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 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.” The primary purpose of God's is to give mankind THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN.

The Apostle Paul reiterates this truth in Romans 7:13, “Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.” God's law gives humanity THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN. I heard radio host Michael Savage say something very interesting a few years ago. Michael said that the reason why the world hates the Jews so much, is because God gave the world a conscience through Israel. God gave the Ten Commandments to the Gentiles through Israel (Romans 3:2).

So in the true story of The Rich Young Ruler And Jesus, we see that Jesus used the law properly as God intended—as a measuring stick—by which when men compare themselves fall short of the glory of God; thus, seeing their need for salvation the law brings them to Christ to be saved through faith alone. Galatians 3:24-26, “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Jesus showed the rich young ruler that, in fact, he couldn't get to Heaven by KEEPING THE LAW!!!

Now with that truth in mind, please take a look at the ungodly perverse doctrinal poison of Pastor John MacArthur:
“The Gospel says, 'give your life to Christ and He rules' and if you're not willing to do that it's because you want to keep the rule of your own life. The rich young man wanted his own life for himself. He wanted to control his own life. He had his choice: sins, he had his choice, religion, and he wanted to hang onto control. It's that simple. Coming to Christ means you give up the control of your life, and you yield it to Christ. That's what kept him from salvation, he was unwilling to do that.” [emphasis added]

SOURCE: ( 4:51 in the video)
BLASPHEMY!!! Sadly, all of the following preachers get the story of The Rich Young Ruler And Jesus WRONG: Jack Hyles, Harry Ironside, Billy Graham, John Piper, John MacArthur, Ray Comfort and George Whitefield!!! Wow!!! Thankfully, Dr. John R. Rice gets it 100% correct, which is where I correctly learned the truth of this Bible passage from.

I realize that no one is correct on everything, and we're all entitled to our own opinions, respectfully. However, when a false prophet perverts the Scriptures to teach ANOTHER GOSPEL [2nd Corinthians 11:4], then it is every believer's duty to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 1:3). Pastor MacArthur is a false prophet!!! The reason why the rich young ruler didn't get saved, wasn't because he refused to “give up control” of his life (as MacArthur says); but rather, it was because he was trying to save himself, by the works of the law.

Dear reader, when you hear anyone saying that to get to Heaven you must “repent and turn away from your sins,” they are misusing God's Old Testament law! You cannot get saved by keeping the law, which is effectively what they are requiring you to do to be saved. 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.” You don't turn from your sins or sinful ways to be saved. The very idea is offensive to the Gospel! It is a counterfeit plan of salvation. Contrawise, Jesus came into the world to die on the cross FOR YOUR SINS. Salvation is RECEIVING, not ACHIEVING. Salvation is a TAKE proposition, not a GIVE proposition. God is offering you a free gift. All you need to do is TAKE it by faith.

I titled this blog: “The Wickedness Of Today's Pastors.” I titled it that because of the woeful sinful spirit of indifference which unfortunately exists among the entire Pensacola Christian College (PCC) crowd. Their college teaches their students not to care, to be isolated from the raging battle in Christendom today. The Bible teaches that preachers are to be SOLDIERS OF JESUS CHRIST!!! 2nd Timothy 2:3-4, Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. Sadly, the pastors I have met from PCC; namely, Sean Quinlan, Timothy Zaharias and Jeff Redlin, were total Caspar Milquetoast WIMPS!

Both Sean Quinlan and Jeff Redlin condemned my ministry! We will see what God thinks about their hurtful comments, false allegations and woeful lack of compassion. Quinlan called me “obsessed over the Bible,” for my zeal to expose the devils at Bob Jones University who promote corruptible seed (fake bibles), preach another gospel (Lordship Salvation), and by doing so are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. I am faithfully exposing the Bob Jones camp, but Sean Quinlan sinfully calls them “our sister church.” Really? Why would any Baptist pastor want to be unequally yoked together with a cult?

Pastor Quinlan evidently has never read the Epistle of Galatians!!! The Apostle Paul was upset because the Galatian churches had embraced and yoked together with a deadly cult. When anyone attacks the grace of God, they are attacking the GOD of grace! They are attacking the GIFT of grace, which is the Gospel. They are attacking the GUARDIAN of grace, which is the local New Testament church. They are attacking the GOAL of grace, which is to go into all the world and preach the Gospel, to get people saved. When the Gospel is corrupted, none of these things can happen! Their is no gift, no guardian and no goal if we do not have THE TRUTH of the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Acts 16:30-31).

  22. Pensacola Christian College (PCC) is WICKED for hobnobbing with evildoers in the BJU camp, who preach another gospel (Galatians 1:6-9).
  23. PCC is WICKED for prioritizing making money over defending sound doctrine.
  24. BJU is WICKED for promoting their filthy English Stand Version (ESV).
I have been listening to Alexander Scourby read the book of Proverbs for the past few days. I just heard a Bible verse that perfectly applies to this blog. Proverbs 29:12, “If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked. Dr. Steve Pettit is an infidel, who has been the the new president of BJU since 2014. Harvest Baptist Church on Guam IDOLIZES Dr. Pettit, broadcasting BJU's chapels services throughout the Micronesian islands. The Bible warns in Proverbs 29:12 that if a ruler succumbs to LIES, so will also be all of his servants! Since BJU's leader is a demonic false prophet, denying that faith alone is enough to be saved, that means every BJU graduate who sanctions and follows the college today is also corrupt!!! According to Steve Pettit, to be saved you must faithfully RUN THE RACE until the end of your life on earth. That is Calvinism (i.e., the junk theology of John Calvin), and not a free grace Gospel.

What has happened ladies and gentlemen, is that backslidden professed free grace Christians have let down their guard, tolerating unsaved Calvinists. You'll have to look far and long nowadays to find a sound Bible-believing church, that refutes and exposes the accursed Calvinist crowd. The entire Southern Baptist Convention in 2022 is CALVINIST!!! That means 45,000 member churches of the SBC are religious CULTS!!! Anybody who says you must “repent and turn from your sinning to be saved is a LIAR and a CULT.
“The fella who knows what repentance is knows it's included in believing.” —Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995)

“You'll even change your mind about repentance if you get saved. You are going to have to repent about your idea of repentance to be saved. Because if you have felt repentance is reformation, or turning from sin, and you're going to turn from sin to get saved, then you're not going to get saved until you change your mind about that idea, and decide that you're saved by the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ on the cross. Then you've repented over your repentance!” —Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995)
I have typed out a brief blog, but I could write volumes of books exposing the rotten-apple Bob Jones University and Pensacola Christian College camps today. They are Godless and shameful. There are several dozen more contaminated Bible colleges as well, like the corrupt Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary (where Marty Herron is now milking the cow, hurting people with his damnable false gospel). Marty gets paid a slickening 6-digit salary! God will severely punish these wicked imposters, who masquerade as true Christians, but underneath they are deadly wolves (covered in sheep's clothing - Matthew 7:13-15). The Bible said (in the verses to follow in Matthew 7), that we would know them by “their fruit, by their doctrine (1st John 4:1). Marty Herron is a religious devil in disguise!

I have been dissed, condemned, shunned, forced out of churches, ostracized, berated, insulted, mistreated, ignored, criticized, blackballed, slandered and abused by the shameful names of the pastors mentioned in this blog. God will be their judge and mine (Romans 3:2; Matthew 12:36; Proverbs 24:12; Galatians 1:6-9, 3:1-3, 5:4, 6:7). Evangelist Billy Sunday (1962-1935) was also hated for his strong stand against evil (in his case it was alcohol, gambling and dancing). Read what Billy Sunday said, which is my testimony as well:
“I've stood for more sneers and scoffs and insults and had my life threatened from one end of the land to the other by this God-forsaken gang of thugs and cutthroats because I have come out uncompromisingly against them.” —Billy Sunday
Sadly, my bitterest enemies have not been the liquor traffic, filthy dancers or greedy gambling casinos; but rather, it is dirty preachers in the Bob Jones University camp who preach a false gospel, and negligent preachers who serve mammon instead of God, and the shamefully indifferent Pensacola Christian College crowd who wickedly bid Godspeed to BJU and company!!! God knows that I didn't go looking for any of these fights, I just wanted to quietly attend church, and share THE TRUTH with some messed-up pastors who needed to see THE TRUTH. I did what Evangelist Tom Ferrell said, I was a true friend, trying to help my friends to see! But for my love they returned hatred. Psalms 109:4-5, “For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer. And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.”

On one particular Sunday morning in 2014, I attended the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. I heard their senior pastor, Marty Herron, give an invitation at the end of his sermon. He said to hundreds of people present, verbatim: “It is not enough to admit that you are a sinner to get to Heaven, you must also turn away from a lifestyle of sinning.” My heart sunk and broke. I literally went home numb in my soul and physically cried. I mean tear cry! I prayed and asked God what to do. I decided to continue going to Harvest, which was the only church family I had know for several months, but spend a few hundred dollars for hard copies of books by doctrinally sound Bible preachers to give their pastors. I did just that! I know God is very proud of me for having an excellent spirit like Daniel, for caring to tell THE TRUTH, for being a true friend to help some wayward pastors see THE TRUTH. I did the right thing!!!

Here are the books that I handed them free of charge (I paid for them with my money):
  1. I Never Knew You (by Michael P. Bowen)
  2. NIV: The Antichrist's Bible (by Pastor Al Lacy)
  3. Somebody Has Got To Milk The Cows (by Pastor Jack Hyles; this is the MP3)
  4. Martin Luther: Master Of Deceit (by Pastor Max D. Younce)
I also gave them sermon CD's with sermons by Pastors' Jack Hyles, Danny Castle, Phil Kidd and other preachers that have influenced me over the years). Sadly, the pastors of Harvest took great offense! I was called into the church office to be officially reprimanded. They falsely accused me of causing “confusion” and “divisiveness in the church! How can they justly accuse me of confusing people, when their church already uses TWO DOZEN different Bible versions??? Acts 19:32, “Some therefore cried one thing, and some another: for the assembly was confused; and the more part knew not wherefore they were come together.” What an applicable Scripture! Today's Bible versions don't agree! They all say something different. Look for yourself friend...

It is for exposing this woeful evil in today's apostate Bible colleges and churches that I have been dissed, condemned, shunned, forced out of churches, ostracized, berated, insulted, mistreated, ignored, criticized, blackballed, slandered and abused by the shameful names of the pastors in this blog, because I HAVE COME OUT UNCOMPROMISINGLY AGAINST THEM (just like Billy Sunday did. Amen!)...
“I've stood for more sneers and scoffs and insults and had my life threatened from one end of the land to the other by this God-forsaken gang of thugs and cutthroats because I have come out uncompromisingly against them.” —Billy Sunday
I have covered a lot in this article, but all these things needed to be said. We are at wat dear reader! We are at war with the Devil. We are at war with the Devil's crowd today. We are at war with the Bible butchering movement. We are at war with the demonic Bob Jones University camp and all their complicit graduates, who preach another gospel of Lordship Salvation, and preach the Devil's heresy that one must “ repent of sins” and “turn away from sinful ways to be saved. If they are right, then God's gift of eternal life cannot truly be a free gift, because you are obligated to surrender something in return (your sins) to get it!

By God's grace, I will continue to fight the good fight of faith. by God's grace, I will continue to preach against the rotten Bob Jones University crowd, until they repent of their counterfeit plan of salvation, which is damning millions of lost sinners to the Lake of Fire (Matthew 7:21-23). Jesus paid it all on Calvary's cross, so that we don't have to turn from our sins to be saved, we simply need to BELIEVE ON HIM. After a person gets saved, THEN God's indwelling Holy Spirit will begin to convict that person about the sins in their life, and changes that God would like to see happen. This is the process of sanctification, which takes a lifetime.

You know, I once actually heard Pastor Marty Herron say that we trust Christ once to get saved, but becoming Christlike takes a lifetime. Bravo! Marty got that 100% correct! But sadly, then he turns around later and says that you must turn away from a lifestyle of sinning to be saved, which is a total contradiction to his previous statement. The man is utterly confused.

Here is one of my all-time favorite quotes, this one by Pilgrim's Progress author, John Bunyan. By the way, you can freely LISTEN to the entire audiobook of Pilgrim's Progress. Here is the quote:
“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)
Well said! That is exactly what is wrong with Marty Herron, Steve Pettit, Gary Walton and the whole rotten gang from Bob Jones University (BJU), they are guilty of MIXING grace with works, of not putting a difference between justification and sanctification. Sometimes they'll make accurate statements, but then totally contradict themselves with John MacArthur style damnable heresies! They are a house of fools! I humbly tried to help them, but in their haughty sinful pride and evil arrogance they killed the messenger. I came bearing THE TRUTH, but they rejected it (Hosea 4:6).

To God alone be ALL the credit, praise and glory, for using a humble broken sinner like me to make an impact for eternity here on earth. Jesus said without Him we can do nothing (John 15:5). I am just a clump of clay, serving my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Galatians 2:20). Thank you for reading this blog. JESUS IS PRECIOUS!!!
