Romans 10:11, Whosoever Believeth On Him Shall Not Be Ashamed

Romans 10:11, “For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.”

What Does Romans 10:11 Mean? I have heard some radio preachers butcher this Scripture, teaching heresy. I've heard numerous preachers teach that a person is not saved if they are “ashamed” of Jesus. That is simply not true my friend. Peter was ashamed of Jesus, even denying that he knew Him (John 18:25-27). That is not what Romans 10:11 means at all. The Greek word for “ashamed” here is “kataischuno” and means “put to shame, disgrace.” God is saying that whosoever trusts upon the Lord will not be put to shame, i.e., he will not be disgraced.

Romans 10:11 is a quote from the Old Testament. Isaiah 28:16, “Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth SHALL NOT MAKE HASTE.” If we simply cross-reference the Scripture, then we easily find the correct interpretation of Romans 10:11. The Bible is not so lengthy that it cannot be read through in a few months by the average person. Certainly if we read the Holy Bible on a regular basis, we are going to read Bible passages that remind us of other passages, and that is how we learn the Bible.

I heard a sincere Baptist preacher claim that the 54 King James Bible translators made a mistake when they translated Romans 10:11, “For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.” According to this pastor, the scholars who worked on the King James Bible should have used the words “should not” instead of “shall not.” But respectfully, that pastor got it all wrong! As I have already shown you from Isaiah 28:16, this passage is not speaking about believers who are ashamed of being identified with Jesus (as was the Apostle Peter); but rather, this passage is about believers who will NEVER be ashamed in the future, if Jesus were to fail to keep His promises.

By the way, this is a good example of why I strongly discourage anyone from attempting to correct the Word of God. We are not supposed to CORRECT the Bible; the Bible is supposed to CORRECT us. The Bible doesn't need to be rewritten, it needs to be reread.

The New Testament quotes the Old Testament HUNDREDS of times. Scholars set that number of quotes at roughly 300. In such passages, we already know that we need to refer to the Old Testament, if we want to correctly interpret that New Testament passage. The Old Testament is the New Testament CONCEALED; and the New Testament is the Old Testament REVEALED. Such is the case in Romans 10:11a, “For the scripture saith...” Romans 10:11 plainly tells us that the apostle Paul is quoting the Old Testament. Unfortunately, lazy preachers fail to look at what the Old Testament says and end up teaching false doctrine.

I heard a radio preacher years ago in Chicago say, that you are not saved if you're ashamed of Jesus, and then he quoted Romans 10:11 to prove his false teaching, taking the Bible verse out of context. Peter was ashamed of knowing Jesus (Matthew 26:70-75). The chief rulers who believed on Jesus were ashamed of confessing Him (John 12:42-43). Yet, they were saved securely. Being ashamed of Jesus doesn't mean you're not saved, it just means that you love the praise of men more than the praise of God (John 12:43). All of the apostles forsook Jesus during His darkest hour of betrayal and trial. They were scared.

Isaiah 28:16 plainly reveals what Romans 10:11 means—God PROMISES that whosoever trusts upon the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation will NOT be disgraced, will not be disappointed, will not be let down. JESUS NEVER FAILS!!!

Psalms 119:165 Is An Often Misunderstood Passage Of Scripture

Psalms 119:165, “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.”

I hear preachers get the meaning of this Bible verse wrong all the time. The Hebrew word for “offend” in Psalms 119:165 is mikshol, which means “a stumblingblock; cause to fall.” This Bible verse means that if you abide in God's Word, you won't stumble. The psalmist David elaborates elsewhere in his writings:

Psalms 1:1-3, “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”

The Christian who loves God's inspired Word, so that he or she abides, nurtures and continually feasts upon the Holy Bible, will be grounded like a strong tree with deep roots nourished alongside a flowing river. In that believer's season (time) they will bring forth fruit (souls won to Christ). In The Parable Of The Sower And The Seeds, we read concerning the last and obedient fourth group in Luke 8:15, “But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.”

Psalms 119:165 is not teaching that if you love the Bible, you won't be offended no matter what people do to you. I heard a preacher recently teach this misunderstanding of the passage. Folks, people are going to offend us all the time! Jesus said in Matthew 11:6, “And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.” I am not offended to let the world know that I am a Christian. That is what Psalms 119:165 means, no one can cause our faith to falter. I wear my “Jesus” and “John 3:16” hat everywhere I go, advertising to the world that I am a child of God, and I am not ashamed of Jesus!!!

The Bible is teaching in Psalms 119:165 that if we abide in the inspired Holy Scriptures, we won't go astray:
1st Timothy 4:10-16, “For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. These things command and teach. Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.”
I love those last verses. The Apostle Paul is telling young Timothy that by taking heed to RIGHT DOCTRINE (not false teaching), he will not only save himself, but those who hear him preach. The Greek word for “save” in Verse 16 is sozo, which means “to deliver, or protect.” This is where consulting the Hebrew, Chaldean or Greek really comes in handy when trying to rightly interpret the Bible. Without looking up the word “offended” in Psalms 119:165 in a Strong's Concordance (or something similar; I like, you'd never be able to rightly discern the correct intended meaning of the passage. This is why we are commanded in 2nd Timothy 2:15 to “Study” the Word of Truth, to shew thyself approved unto God.

You can read the Bible all day, and mediate upon it all night, and still be offended by inconsiderate, mean, rotten and selfish people. When Jesus healed ten lepers of leprosy, only one bothered to return to thank Him. Jesus was offended! Luke 17:17-18, “And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.” The Lord's feelings were hurt. People can be such ingrates, especially toward those who help them the most.

Dear reader, Psalms 119:165 simply means that if you live, heed and obey the Word of God, you won't go astray! You're in good hands with Jesus!!!
James 1:22-25, “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”
When I went to San Diego, California in 2010 for my second neck surgery, I saw a homeless man looking through a garbage can for food. I handed him $20 and a Gospel of John. He humbly thanked me and said something I'll never forget. He quoted the preceding passage and said: “Thank you for being a DOER of the Word, and not just a HEARER!” Wow! That was so cool. I got much more of a blessing that day than he did. God is so good! ...
Proverbs 4:7, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”

Proverbs 4:23, “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”
If we will obey the Bible with God's help (Galatians 2:20), and draw close to our beloved Great Shepherd (James 4:8-17), then we will not be led astray from the truth and the joy that comes with having faith in God. Happiness is what happens to us. So we may not be happy most of the time (I'm not), but we can still have joy and peace 100% of the time in our miseries. Jesus told us in Luke 10:20 to rejoice, not because of external circumstances that can change, but only because our name is written in Heaven in the Lamb's Book Of Life. Peace is quiet of mind. Many people have: 'A Noisy Soul' (a tremendous sermon by Pastor Ron Haese).

God bless you dear reader! So, remember, nothing can cause you to stumble and bring offence to your walk with God, if you love God's Word and apply it to your life. 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.” It is only when we allow doubt to become the precursor to fear, that we start to go astray.

Either the Bible and prayer will keep us from sin, or else sin will keep us from praying and abiding in the Scriptures. Don't just read the Bible friend, think about what it means and what God intends for you to do with it. Meditate therein about the deep and dark sayings of God's Word. I don't know about you, but I enjoy trying to discern what God means in various passages. I great place to always start, if you are not sure where to begin, is either in the books of Genesis, Proverbs or the Gospel of John. Those are my favorites!

The $64,000 question is: Do you love God's Word? Jesus is the Living Word; the Holy Bible is the Written Word. Dr. John R. Rice (1895-1980) used to wisely call Jesus and the Bible “twins.” Jesus' name is called: 'THE WORD OF GOD' (Revelation 19:13; John 1:1, 14). Jesus said in John 14:15 that if we love Him, we will keep His commandments. So to the same degree that we love the Holy Bible, to that same degree we love Jesus, and vise versa. Psalms 119:165, “Great peace have they which love thy law (Jesus): and nothing shall offend them.” No one truly loves Jesus who does not heed the inspired Word of God in obedience!!! Our relationship the the King James Bible is synonymous with our relationship to Christ. No one can reject the Bible and accept Christ, for they are effectively one and the SAME (John 1:1-3, 14). When we study the Bible, we are learning the mind of Christ.

Jesus commanded us in John 5:39 to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES!!! You won't go astray friend, if you make the inspired Word of God your lighthouse to guide you through life's raging storms! Psalms 119:104-105, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” That is what Psalms 119:165 means!!! Psalms 119:165, “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.” Nothing will sink your battleship! Nothing will cause you to stumble spiritually and choke you from maturing to win souls (Luke 8:14). Nothing will quench your faith!

So keep that in mind when you read Psalms 119:165, “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.” This doesn't mean that you'll never be offended, it simply means that you won't stumble if you are grounded in the inspired Word of God. I have heard some pastors, like Steven Anderson, discourage people from studying the Hebrew and Greek, but this is a good example of why it helps at times to study the ancient languages from which our beloved King James Bible was translated.

Being Scared Is Not A Sign Of Being Saved

Ephesians 1:13-14, In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.”

Angels Didn't Have Carnal Knowledge With Women

Genesis 6:1-4, “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”

Someone recently messaged me on Facebook to ask if I'd heard about the “bloodline of hybrid fallen angel-humans” (Nephilim). They were referring to a theoretical secret bloodline (offspring) of fallen angels who allegedly had carnal knowledge with human females and conceived a race of literal physical giants. I've even heard a Baptist preacher teach that 600 foot giants existed back in ancient times. Uh, no, they didn't. And there is no secret bloodline of the Nephilim. I am sorry to rain on your parade, all you conspiracy theorists.

Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) preached a Wednesday night Bible study series in 1974 called: 'DEMONOLOGY.' It is an excellent series that I highly recommend. Albeit, I love and admire Brother Hutson, but as all preachers do, I disagree with him on a doctrinal point. In part 2B of the series, Dr. Hutson teaches that fallen angels (demons) had carnal knowledge (physical intimacy) with human women, and physical giants (monstrosities) were conceived, which he says were destroyed in the Flood of Noah's day. I do not believe this teaching.

The Scriptures plainly teach in 1st Corinthians 15:39-40, “All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.” Angels do not have reproductive organs. Why would they need them? I have never understood why Bible preachers conclude that angels had intimate relationships with humans. It is not sound doctrine in my humble opinion. The Bible is very clear that angels are not capable of having carnal knowledge with women. Matthew 22:30, “For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.” What would be the reason to give angels reproductive organs, if they are not able to use them? This one thought proves that angels did not have sex with humans.

Unfortunately, Pastor John F. MacArthur also teaches this strange doctrine...

Demonic Invasion as explained in Genesis 6 by John MacArthur

Genesis 6:4, “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” The Hebrew word for “giant” is nephil, which simply means, “a feller, that is, a bully or tyrant.”

A feller is a person able or disposed to inflict pain or suffering upon others. We find confirmation of this meaning of “giants” (tyrants) in the next verse—Genesis 6:5-6, “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.” Before the Flood, before courts and capital punishment existed, tyrants roamed the earth, committing all manner of thuggery and wickedness! This is what I believe to be the correct interpretation of “giants” in the Old Testament book of Genesis.

I concede that by the wording of Genesis 6:1-4, that it does seem (taken at face value) like compelling evidence that angels did have carnal knowledge with earthly women. However, carefully notice what the Bible says in Genesis 6:2b, “they took them wives of all which they chose.” This was not forced carnal knowledge by angels. The women freely chose to marry these men! Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) made this helpful statement:
“A good rule to follow when interpreting the Bible is to never use an obscure passage to contradict a clear one.”
Genesis 6:1-4 is an obscure passage. We don't know exactly what it means. Since the passage can (and has been) interpreted various different ways, we must search the Scriptures to find its true meaning. Matthew 22:30, “For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.” Mark 12:25, “For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.” I think this 100% settles the matter! The angels do not marry! The Bible says in Genesis 6:2 that the son of God took to themselves “wives.”

Here is further Scriptural evidence that the fallen angels did not marry women. Matthew 24:37-39, “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” I believe that the phrase in Genesis 6:2b, “they took them wives of all which they chose,” simply means that they were living in gross adultery, going from one failed marriage to another, having mistresses, and living in all manner if wickedness. That is exactly what Matthew 24:37-39 teaches it was like morally before the flood. Kindly said, I think Pastor MacArthur and Dr. Curtis Hutson are very wrong in this matter, who both teach that fallen celestial angels had sex with earthly women, and conceived literal physical giants.

Genesis 4-5 describes two lines of descendants from Adam—one through Cain and the other through Seth. In the Old Testament, God’s covenant people are sometimes referred to as God’s sons. Deuteronomy 14:1, “Ye are the children of the LORD your God: ye shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead. for thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.” Jeremiah 3:19, “But I said, How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations? and I said, Thou shalt call me, My father; and shalt not turn away from me.” This explains why God forbade the Israelites from marrying pagan Canaanite women (Exodus 34:16; Deuteronomy 7:3). So we learn that the “sons of God” not only refer to the angels, but also to God's children (as evidenced in Deuteronomy 14:1). God didn't want His children intermarrying with pagans. We know that only eight human souls entered into the ark, but that doesn't mean there were no saved people since Adam. Clearly there were many. Enoch (the man who walked with God) in Genesis 5:22 was one such child of God. Every saved person is a child of God. So the suggestion that there were no human “sons of God” prior to the flood is silly.

Furthermore, we read in Genesis 1:24, “And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.” God created man in His own image. Genesis 1:26, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” Just like all of creation, humans reproduce after their own kind. That is why bestiality cannot result in conception! Likewise, angels could not have mated with humans, lest humans no longer reproduce after their own kind, in the image of God. 1st Corinthians 15:39-40 clearly teaches that celestial life is different than terrestrial (earthly) life. The idea that fallen angels mated with humans is a strange doctrine, bizarre, and falls within the realm of good science-fiction!

Dr. John MacArthur contends in the preceding video that earthly “sons of God” would not do such things (i.e., mate with humans). Pastor MacArthur uses this erroneous assertion to prove that angels mated with women. However, the Bible is filled with the sins of the saints (e.g., Judges 16:1). Who are the sons of God? Yes, the angels (Job 1:6), but also every saved person. John 1:12, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” As we see in the preceding passage of Scripture, the saints are also “the sons of God.” I believe that Christian men took to themselves unsaved wives in Genesis 6:1-4.

I think this is the only logical conclusion that we can draw, in lieu of the fact that the angels are not given in marriage, and that humans can only conceive after their own kind. If angels and humans mated, and freak giants were produced, then mankind could not have reproduced “after his own kind.” Although Goliath measured in at a staggering 9' 6" tall, he was still within the realm of human limits. Farmer Sultan Kรถsen was born in 1982 to a Kurd family in the southeastern Turkey city Mardin, he is the seventh tallest man in history, measuring in at 8' 2 7/8". There were no giants hundreds of feet tall in the Bible, as the fictitious book of Enoch says.

Throughout the Bible we see the bad things that followed when God's children yoked together with the Devil's children. We see this truth bared out when the Hebrews settled in the land of Canaan. Instead of killing the enemy as God has commanded, they let them live to pay taxes. Consequently, idolatry and intermarrying among God's children with the heathens resulted. God's way is always the best way! God's way is chastity and abstinence before marriage. God's way is a proper holy courtship. God's way is a legal marriage. God's way is one man and one woman in a marriage, together for life. God's way is the traditional family. The “new kind of family” being promoted by liberals, kooks and sodomites today is of the Devil. God's way is always the best and right way.

Another argument that John MacArthur makes, in support of his view that angels mated with humans, is that two angels ate a feast with Lot (Genesis 19:3). I'm getting hungry already! Yes, angels do eat. However, carefully notice that there is not even one recorded place in the Scripture, where a demon appeared in a human body. I am a solid old earth advocate. I don't think anybody can honestly study the Bible diligently and conclude a young earth. Yes, the human race is only 6,000 years old, but the earth itself is very old. What saith the Scriptures? Psalms 102:25, “Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.” David penned those words around 1,000 BC. How old could the earth have been at that time? Also, notice that David specifically mentions “the foundation of the earth.” That verse speaks concerning the age of earth itself, and not human civilization. Pastor Curtis Hutson does a great job teaching an old earth view in his Wednesday night Bible study series from 1974 called: 'DEMONOLOGY.'

The serpent (Satan) was already present in the Garden of Eden. In the Genesis account of creation, no mention is made of the angels being created, nor of Lucifer's rebellion and fall from Heaven (Isaiah 14:12-15). It is logical to conclude that Lucifer and one-third of the angels in Heaven (Revelation 12:4), were cast down to the earth prior to the creation of mankind. All Biblical evidence supports the “Gap Principle” (it is not a theory). The young earth nonsense is a theory! I mean it gets insanely bizarre—the crazy things young earth advocates teach!

I couldn't stop laughing after reading a book by Henry Morris III titled: '5 Reasons To Believe In Recent Creation,' in which he bizarrely claims that Noah took baby dinosaurs aboard the ark, and God stunted their growth to keep them from growing! Ken Ham's disgraceful, decorated, cinderblock building called: 'The Ark Encounter,' is a circus in Kentucky, in which Ken even displays fire-breathing dragons aboard Noah's ark. How do these money-hungry fools dare call this Bible doctrine? They are religious conmen, whom sadly most churches embrace today. Sadly, in 2016 Pastor Clarence Sexton at the Temple Baptist Church in Powell, Tennessee, invited and honored this religious clown, letting Ken Ham speak to thousands of impressionable students at Crown College! Right doctrine matters folks.

I believe that the angels that were cast down with Lucifer, instantly became disembodiment spirits. This explains why demons never appear in their own body in the Bible. Demons always either possessed a human or an animal. When Jesus cast the demons out of the man at Gadarenes (Mark 5:1-13), the demons begged to be sent into a herd of 2,000 swine, and they immediately ran down the hill into the sea and commit hogicide. Sorry, that is a joke a heard a preacher say years ago! The pigs all drowned! That is what demons will do to people too! Many Americans today are possessed with demons, and those victims ensnared by the Devil are drowning in sin! The Devil is a beautiful liar! Watch out!

Demons in the Bible always appeared in someone else's body, whether human or beast, and never in their own physical body, as did the angels of the Lord. God's angels always appeared in their own physical body in the Bible, such as when the two angels visited Lot. This teaches us, furthermore, that demons did not mate physically with women. And even if demons did possess human men (i.e., an incubus) in Genesis 6:1-4, inspiring them to mate with women, the offspring would still be human in every sense, and not freak giants. When a demon lives inside a human body, that demon cannot in any way alter that person's body, except to cause them to do bodily harm to them self or others. Also, if demons possessed men in Genesis 6:1-4, why could they not also possess women (i.e., a succubus)? This sound logic disproves that theory as false.

I find nothing in the Holy Bible to teach that physical “giants” roamed the earth. The popular Hebrew word Nephilim simply means “a bully or tyranny.” For example: We read that of the 12 spies who went into Canaan, only Joshua and Caleb had the faith to do as God had commanded, to conquer the land! The other 10 spies had no faith:

Numbers 13:31-33, “But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”

Carefully notice that the 10 faithless spies exaggerated how bad it was. They said “ALL” the people we saw are of great stature! They cried out that they saw giants! The three sons of Anak were punks! They were the local motorcycle gang in town, bullies. Caleb went into the Promised Land, hunted them down, and killed all three of them! Amen and amen! I totally disagree that angels mated with humans, changing their DNA, so that giants were conceived. 

That is science fiction! Someone told me that some great preachers disagree with me. Well, “great” is a relative term, isn't it. I would rather be the man who obeys my great God and Savior, than to be called “a great man of God” for my preaching. Over one billion hellbound Catholics consider their ungodly Pope “a man of God.” So much for the term “man of God.” We're not supposed to compare ourselves amongst ourselves. Jesus told us in John 5:39a to “SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES.” I have given you many Scriptures on this matter. What saith the Scripture?

Someone suggested that the “sons of God” in Genesis 6:2 couldn't have meant Christians, because God did not save them from the worldwide flood. They are making an unreasonable assumption that no Christians lived and died before the flood! You need to understand dear reader that between the creation of Adam, and the flood of Noah's day, there were approximately 1,500 years. Many people got saved and died during that time period. Enoch is one such proof that Christians did exist before the flood. Enoch was a man whom the Bible says, “pleased God” (Hebrews 11:5).

I always encourage my web visitors to do their own homework, and form their own conclusions, but make sure that you have a Bible verse for all of your beliefs. Otherwise it is merely speculation, which we should always announce if we teach others. I have given you several helpful passages of Scripture, to refute the idea that fallen angels someone mated with human women. In consideration of the whole counsel of Scripture, I think it is abundantly clear that the only logical explanation is that Christian men were marrying unsaved women in Genesis 6:1-4. Their children were extremely popular with the people, being both Christian and worldly in their roots, which made them celebrities of the day. It was a time of tyrants and unimaginable evil the Bible says, which is why God decided to destroy the earth with a flood.

I admit that it is intriguing to think that demons could have had physical intimacy with human woman, but as I have shown you from the Scriptures, it contradicts the plain teachings of the Bible. Jesus said the angels are not given in marriage. There would be no purpose for angels to have genitalia, since God did not create them to reproduce. God created a certain number of angels. There are no children angels, as there are human children.

Although some people might speculate that demons possessed men to impregnate female humans, even if that were true the offspring would still be 100% human. There is simply no biblical evidence to support the idea of Nephilim.

Pensacola Christian College (PCC) Makes God Regurgitate

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.”

A few months ago PCC cancelled 'The King's Singers' from singing at Campus Church, when they learned that one of the men is a closet homosexual. Great, I think PCC did the right thing. 

But then why does PCC wickedly bid Godspeed to the demonic Bob Jones University cult? Why does PCC buddy-buddy and bid Godspeed to the hellbound Harvest Baptist Church on Guam (a cesspool of BJU graduates). Pastor Jeff Redlin's name appears on Harvest's KHMG 88.1 FM radio station's webpage. Redlin is senior pastor at PCC's Campus Church. Birds of a feather flock together! BJU uses, sells and promotes the Devil's Bible perversions. BJU preaches the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation. BJU teaches the same false understanding of Bible repentance as do all the pseudo-Christian cults! In FACT, Mormons love and fully support John MacArthur's Lordship Salvation heresy, because they are all in agreement!!! The ungodly Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is an extension of cult headquarters at BJU.

What hypocrisy! What PCC is telling the world is that they have a problem with sodomites, but hellbound damnable false prophets are okay!!!

Would PCC allow their impressionable students (entrusted to them by caring and concerned parents) play intercollegiate sports with known butt-bumping homosexuals? No way! Yet, PCC allows their students to play intercollegiate sports with butt-head Calvinists, Lordship Salvationists, Bible corrupters and those who pervert the Bible meaning of repentance. RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!!

I was there at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam in 2014 when their unsaved pastor Marty Herron said, quote: "It is not enough to admit you are a sinner to get to Heaven, you must also forsake a lifestyle of sinning." That is WORKS!!! That is another gospel accursed by God (Galatians 1:6-9; 1st Corinthians 15:1-4). I went home and cried after church that Sunday. I decided to be a friend and help Harvest's pastors to see, so I spent hundreds of dollars for books authored by fundamentalist Bible preachers and handed them personally to Harvest's pastors, for which I was kicked out of church and permanently banned. Woe unto Harvest and the accursed Bob Jones University cult.

The ungodly pastors at Campus Church at PCC, in response to my faithful preaching against Harvest and the BJU cult, was to falsely accuse me in 2021 of "finding weaknesses in preachers." Jeff Redlin is a monster!!! Wake up Pensacola Christian College! Wake up PCC students!!! Wake up local complicit churches in Pensacola!!! You have all been hoodwinked and deceived.

The saddest thing of all is that I haven't found even one Baptist church in all of Pensacola who doesn't kiss up to PCC, fully complicit to their harlotry with the Devil's crowd in the Bob Jones camp. By the way, I have also been permanently banned from returning to Campus Church at PCC. SHAME on these wicked people!!! The name of their game is making money, money and more money. THE LOVE OF MONEY is the root of all evil (1st Timothy 6:10-11), which is what's wrong today with 99% of Bible colleges and churches, who sinfully go along with evil and refuse to contend for the faith.

Honestly, PCC are pennywise and dollar stupid. They hurt the feelings of The King's Singers by cancelling their scheduled performance in 2023 at the college, because a student at PCC discovered that one of the singers is secretly gay; but then PCC is perfectly fine with committing spiritual whoredom with the accursed cult at Bob Jones University? What rotten hypocrites!!! What religious phonies!!! What a disgrace to the cause of Jesus Christ!!!

Listen, I am being horribly shunned, hated and ostracized by PCC, because I am faithfully crying: "WOLF!" Meanwhile, PCC are spiritually fornicating in bed with the Bob Jones cult. What is happened is: THE LOVE OF MONEY has overtaken the PCC camp (and nearly all of today's Bible colleges and churches). They need money to pay their bills. Fear of not having enough money to pay themselves is a compelling temptation to avoid making enemies by taking a stand against falsehoods, corruption and sin.

PCC has decided to set the bar very low. Since PCC refuses to suffer reproach for the name of Christ and to be put outside the gate with Jesus, and Steven Anderson and truth-tellers like me; to protect their ungodly huge egos PCC chooses instead to put down, falsely accuse, belittle and shun people like me and Pastor Anderson. PCC's impotent style of cowardly Christianity is sending America to Hell!!! We need preaching preachers, not more Christian nurses, chemists and cops!

Taking a biblical stand against doctrinal error, corruption and indifference at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam and Pensacola Christian College has cost me everything!!! Only God knows the inexplicable pain of soul that I have suffered from losing my church family after one year of making friends, falling in love and losing it all in a moment of time, simply because I TOLD THE TRUTH. When Marty Herron kicked me out of church, I went home and literally fainted, falling back and crashing onto the floor. I was in excruciating pain for over one month. That is how adversely it affected me when Pastor Herron cruelly threw me under the bus, because I befriended him with THE TRUTH. I pray to God to be avenged of these wicked ungodly devils.

Just like the Apostle Paul, they immediately counted me as their enemy (Galatians 4:16-17). In 2021, I moved and flew 9,000 miles from Guam to Pensacola. I chose to attended the biggest church in Pensacola at PCC's Campus Church, just to be horrified to find out that PCC is in bed immorally sleeping with the heretical dogs at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. I was sickened. No doubt Harvest's haughty pastors think it all humorous, but they will reap tears of horror and bitter regret, as they realize it is too late, and they are the hellbound self-righteous Pharisees in Matthew 7:21-23. They will cry out, “Lord, Lord,” but Jesus will deny knowing them as His sheep. Lordship Salvation is a perversion of the Gospel (an excellent writing by Dr. Curtis Hutson, 1934-1995).

Somebody's got to care!!! I care. Do you care? PCC doesn't care. What right does PCC's leaders (gods unto themselves) have to decide where to draw the line of ecclesiastical separation? The Bible is clear in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 what "the Gospel" is. Nothing is mentioned about living a lifestyle of forsaking sinful bad habits. Nothing is said about surrendering "all" to Christ. Nothing is said about "turning away from past sinful ways" to be saved. Nothing is said about "being willing to turn from sin" to be saved. You simply need to BELIEVE that Jesus died on a cross for your sins, was buried and bodily resurrected three days later from the dead, to be saved.

I have been faithfully exposing Dr. John MacArthur's damnable false gospel. As I have shown you, MacArthur's Lordship Salvation heresy is required reading at the Mormon's Brigham Young University (Bring 'Em Young) for all students. That speaks volumes as to the deadly perversion of John MacArthur's counterfeit plan of salvation. I ask everyone to please use social media to help me expose Pensacola Christian College's wicked support of John MacArthur, Bob Jones University cult, and the ungodly Harvest Baptist Church on Guam.

PCC leaders have no shame! They are haughty, cocky, snobbish and arrogant, belittling anyone who dares to call them out (as I have done) for sinfully bidding Godspeed to false teachers, and in so doing making themselves partakers of their evil deeds (2nd John 1:11). RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!!

The Dangerous Influence Of Pensacola Christian College

Revelation 3:1-2, “And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.”

I cannot think of a better Scripture passage which describes Pensacola Christian College (PCC) than our text. Revelation 3:1b, “I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Yes, Pensacola Christian College (PCC) has a name that they live off, but they are spiritually dead today. PCC exerts tremendous influence over local, regional, national and global churches.

The great danger is in PCC's unwillingness to contend for the faith. Tragically, the PCC camp refuse to speak out against the Lordship Salvation heresy being preached at Bob Jones University (BJU). PCC and their alumni have the ungodly and irresponsible attitude that it is none of our business what they do in the BJU camp. But it is our business what everybody preaches, if it is a counterfeit gospel. What saith the Scripture?
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.
When I lived on the island of Guam for 17 years, I attended various Baptist churches. In 2018 I attended the Lighthouse Baptist Church. The pastor at the time was Sean Quinlan, an intern from Pensacola Christian College (PCC). I attended the church for about a year. Pastor Quinlan had been eavesdropping on my personal conversation for several months. He heard me warning fellow believers what's wrong with the Devil's modern Bible revisions.

Jesus said that a man's mouth speaks of the abundance of the 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. I love the Word of God. Psalms 119:104, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.” This Scripture passage is very clear. If you abide in the Scriptures you will hate every false way! So why doesn't the PCC camp expose doctrinal error?

I have nothing personal against Sean Quinlan, but he (and by extension PCC) is the epitome of why America is going to Hell today!!! One evening after church Pastor Quinlan got angry at me outside the front of the church. I was talking with Brother Bill, a friend of mine at church. I was warning him about the Devil's bibles and said: “Bob Jones University promotes corruptible seed.” That statement alone angered Sean Quinlan, because I soon learned that the PCC camp are in bed committing spiritual adultery with the Bob Jones University (BJU) camp.

As we argued because he picked a verbal fight with me in front of his church members, I kindly but firmly told Pastor Quinlan that the Bob Jones camp are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. The name of the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam came up. I told Quinlan: “Harvest preaches Calvinism, uses the Devil's bibles and is wrong on the meaning of Bible repentance.” Pastor Quinlan defended the ungodly Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, actually calling them: “Our sister church.” I was horrified and felt sickened when he said that.

I asked him why he would support unsaved Calvinists who preach the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation. He shamefully replied: “It is none of our business what they do at Harvest.” I could write an entire book on just that one wicked statement he made! What Sean Quinlan really meant is that he and headquarters at PCC couldn't care less about false doctrine, all they care about is making money. They would deny that accusation of course at PCC, but it doesn't change the fact that it is THE TRUTH.

I know that God is disgusted with the PCC camp, because in God's sight RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS. We're not merely talking about the timing of the Rapture or the age of the earth, but God's simple plan of salvation for mankind. I heard the senior pastor of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, Marty Herron, say to hundreds of people in a Sunday morning church service: “It is not enough to admit you are a sinner to get to Heaven, you must forsake a lifestyle of sinning.” I was horrified and went home and literally cried. I had to decide whether to go back or leave Harvest. At the time I had nowhere to go, so I decided to be a true friend and help them to see at Harvest. I spent hundreds of dollars with my own money for hardcopies of books, written by fundamentalist Baptist pastors, and gave the following books to the pastors at Harvest:
  1. I Never Knew You (free .pdf book by Michael P. Bowen)
  2. Somebody Has Got To Milk The Cows (this is the MP3 version by Pastor Jack Hyles)
  3. NIV: The Antichrist's Bible (by Pastor Al Lacy)
  4. Martin Luther: Master Of Deceit (by Pastor Max D. Younce)
As a consequence for sharing those books with them, I was called into the church office and reprimanded by the most senior pastors, horribly accused of “causing confusion and divisiveness in the church.” I was saddened that they counted me their enemy, when all I had done was share THE TRUTH with them. Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” Yes, Paul, you and I have been wrongly counted as the enemy because we TOLD THE TRUTH in the churches. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction. That night I left Harvest Baptist Church with tears in my eyes. Those wicked incompetent pastors sided with doctrinal error, over a true friend (me) who had befriended them with THE TRUTH.

To no surprise, Marty Herron (Harvest's senior pastor) wickedly distributed doctrinal materials by Dr. John MacArthur to church members, poisoning their minds with Calvinism. When they were scolding me in the office, with Pastor Herron listening in, I asked Joe Hensen (one of the assistant pastors) why they were accusing me of causing confusion, when their church uses multiple different Bible versions. Hensen shamefully acknowledged to me that on any given Sunday their church has DOZENS of different Bible versions circulating in the pews. That is so shameful, let alone for him to admit it, and not have any problem with such chaos in the church.

Dear reader, I am going somewhere with all this as introduction. Our local churches are in big trouble today! The Bible colleges are the biggest existential threat to local New Testament churches. Pastor Sean Quinlan is not a bad man. He is a good man as far as good men go, but he is not a good pastor or preacher. Pastor Quinlan doesn't care about the details, he is only concerned about impressing cult headquarters back at PCC.

Pastor Quinlan said to me that he was trying to grow his church and didn't want me bringing any “controversies” into his church. Although that may sound like a reasonable statement, what he really meant is that the PCC camp doesn't want to contend for the faith. The whole PCC camp has this poor attitude and bad spirit toward exposing false teachers, false doctrine and false gospels. They refuse to speak a word against the wicked Bob Jones cult and their damnable Lordship Salvation heresy. If you think this is a trifle matter, then you are woefully deceived friend. But don't take my word for it, look for yourself what is being taught at BJU today to their 5,000 students. Calvinism is a perversion of God's grace!!!

I am a fighter! As a born-again child of God and a Bible preacher I am also a soldier. 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.” They are not soldiers at PCC, they are clowns! Clowns entertain people. That's all that's going on at PCC, they sing a bunch of religious songs, fall all over each other with self-praise and self-glorification, and exert a ton of rules upon their unfortunate students. PCC is an authoritarian cult! I'm all for rules, but not rules without love. There is no love for individual people at PCC, only cult rules and authority.

PCC is a dangerous influence upon young people, because they are training the next generation to esteem making money as being more important than right doctrine. PCC by example is telling the world that Christian unity is more important than biblical separation from apostates and unbelievers. What saith the Scripture? 2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. PCC has much blood on their hands for wickedly bidding Godspeed to BJU.

Sadly, Clarence Sexton of Crown College and Temple Baptist Church in Tennessee also wickedly bids Godspeed to BJU. Folks, is Lordship Salvation okay? Is John MacArthur going to Heaven? If he is, then we have a big problem, because in a moment I will show you John MacArthur's rotten plan of salvation, which does not agree with the inspired Holy Bible.

Dr. MacArthur’s position on Lordship Salvation has been made very clear in his published book, THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JESUS. He has also made statements in some of his other published writings and tapes that relate to this subject, some of which are quoted below:
"The Greek word translated 'belief' is not referring merely to intellectual attainment or mental acquiescence but a wholehearted acceptance of everything that is implied in the claims of Christ. You need to believe that Jesus is God and that He died for your sins, committing your whole life to Him in sacrifice and serving Him as Lord." (Assurance of Victory—1 John 5, Moody Press, p.12)

"Submission to the will of God, to Christ’s lordship, and to the guiding of the Spirit is an essential, not an optional, part of saving faith." (EPHESIANS, p. 249)

"Saving faith is a placing of oneself totally in submission to the Lord Jesus Christ." (Romans 1-8, p. 205)
Bob Jones University (BJU) supports John MacArthur's ministry, because MacArthur is one of their alumni. The Bible exhorts all preachers to “REBUKE THEM SHARPLY” who preach a counterfeit gospel (Titus 1:9-14). Instead of rebuking them sharply, Clarence Sexton and Jeff Redlin (senior pastor at PCC's Campus Church) are sinfully bidding Godspeed to the BJU camp. Folks, RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!! I have been banned in writing from attending the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. I have been banned in writing from attending Campus Church at PCC.

These are ungodly pastors who go along with doctrinal error instead of exposing it. This is wickedness, not righteousness!!! What saith the Scripture? Proverbs 12:17, “He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.” I have spoken THE TRUTH, they have protected falsehoods and liars. Whom do you think God is pleased with, me for exposing doctrinal error, or those 6-digit salaried overpaid pastors who support false prophets and their damnable doctrines of devils? You already know the clear answer dear reader.

Sean Quinlan should have commended me for having a zeal to expose the Devil's corrupt Bible versions, but instead he shamefully accused me of being “obsessed over the Bible issue.” You better believe Buster that I am OBSESSED over the Bible issue!!! And shame on Sean Quinlan and anyone else who makes light of God's Word being corrupted. Where is PCC's dog in the fight? They don't have one! PCC is a grave danger to young people and churches today because they tolerate doctrines of devils, they fellowship with unsaved Calvinists in the Bob Jones University camp, and they ban truth-tellers like me from attending Campus Church. That is all wickedness, not the love and righteousness of God.

BJU uses, sells and promotes the Devil's counterfeit Bible versions. The following comparison chart is one of hundreds I could show you, exposing the modern Bible PERversions...

Holy Bible Sinfully Changed For Mere Copyright Purposes

The preceding chart speaks 1,000 words, proving how deadly the modern Bible revisions are. Literally, there are HUNDREDS of English Bible versions today!

All Modern Bible Versions Are Corrupt!

Subtle word changes can and often do have a tremendous impact on the intended meaning. God's inspired Word is not open to man's opinion and debate. Why does Pastor Clarence Sexton tolerate this mess?

And for that matter, since 2008 the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana, and their Hyles-Anderson College (HAC) no longer believe or teach that the King James Bible is inspired. That is so tragic and unfortunate!!! Their new senior pastor since 2012, John Wilkerson is a good man, but he refuses to expose the Devil's counterfeit bibles. Pastor Wilkerson while candidating for the position of pastor plainly told the church that he doesn't speak against the modern Bibles. What a shameful thing to say for a pastor!!! May I say, respectfully, Dr. Jack Hyles was right about the inspiration of the King James Bible.

The Bible warns in 1st Timothy 6:10-11 that THE LOVE OF MONEY is the root of all evil. I think that we hear this Bible passage so much that we don't really take it seriously. PCC, BJU, HAC and Crown College (to name but a few religious institutions today) are collectively making hundreds of millions of dollars. Just like Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron, John MacArthur, Paul Washer and other infidels today who won't speak against each other; so also won't PCC or Crowne College speak out against BJU. They all go along to get along, which ensures that nothing will ever change. John Wesley wisely said: “What one generation tolerates, the next generation will embrace.” Today's Baptist pastors are not preachers anymore. Today's shameful Baptist pastors aren't warning people about the deadly modern versions, Lordship Salvation and misunderstood repentance.

I have been faithfully warning people, for which Pastor Jeff Redlin and his sidekicks falsely accused me of “finding weaknesses in preachers.” What right does Jeff Redlin and company have to accuse me of such a terrible thing, when PCC doesn't take a stand against the Devil's bibles or Lordship Salvation? In fact, Jeff Redlin's name appears on the webpage for Harvest's KHNG 88.1 FM radio station on Guam. The man who used to operate the radio station on Guam is now running their radio station at PCC, and his adult son is on Guam operating Harvest's radio station. Birds of a feather flock together!

Sadly, I am THE ONLY ONE who is crying, “WOLF!” I am the only preacher who is exposing the ungodly Calvinist teachings at Bob Jones University. As flawed as Dr. Peter S. Ruckman was in his doctrine, he did an admirable job exposing the ALEANDRIAN CULT at Bob Jones University. BJU for decades has been the ungodly fountainhead of the corrupt 1881 Westcott and Hort Greek text. RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS! Using the RIGHT BIBLE MATTERS! God only authored one Book, not two, three or hundreds of versions.

I could go on and on exposing these rotten apples, but I've made my general point. God knows that I love pastors and don't enjoy making enemies, but I do enjoy earnestly contending for the Christian faith once delivered unto the saints (Jude 1:3). PCC not only refuses to earnestly contend for the faith, they won't even lift a finger or say a single word. Pastor Clarence Sexton is living large, getting paid a 6-digit salary. He just got back from a vacation in England. The guy is spoiled. Sexton invited and honored infidel Ken Ham, who preaches another gospel. According to Ken Ham, faith is not enough to get to Heaven, he says you must also turn away from your wicked ways (which is 100% WORKS - Jonah 3:10).

I am guilty of caring. Is that a crime? The Apostle Paul cared too. I know I am not an apostle, but it doesn't matter when it comes to hating evil (Psalms 97:10), refuting every work of darkness (Ephesians 5:11), contending for the faith (Jude 1:3), and rebuking false prophets sharply that they might be sound in the faith (Titus 1:9-14). I have obeyed God to take a biblical stand against evil, corruption and falsehoods. Yet, PCC's shameful pastors have banned me from attending Campus Church since August 2, 2022. I pleaded to come back to church, but they refused. Only a cult trashes out people, throwing them under the bus. At PCC the system always comes first, but individual people do not matter. I speak to their shame!

RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!! It matters which Bible that we use. If you don't have a King James Bible, then you don't have an inspired Holy Bible. The Devil is a beautiful liar! Today's new bibles are all corrupt. Lordship Salvation is a perversion of the Gospel! Why, Oh why, are the pulpits today so eerily silent today about these woeful evils? Somebody has got to care! PCC only cares about money. They want to grow church attendances, but not expose error and false teachers. God does not honor such incompetence. Except a man strive lawfully, he is laboring in vain the Bible says (2nd Timothy 2:5).

I am outside the camp tonight with Jesus. As I type, I am not allowed to attend Campus Church. Their shameful pastors couldn't care less. PCC's leaders couldn't care less. They are all in bed with the cesspool of iniquity in the Bob Jones University camp, committing spiritual adultery. God's judgment is upon these horrible institutions because are dead while they live. Revelation 3:1-2, “And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

And so, I will continue to be the black sheep of the family. I'll continue to be Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, who was not allowed to play in any of the reindeer's games. I will continue to be Batman, The Dark Knight, who had to become the villain in order to be the hero who saved Gotham City. Somebody's got to save the city! Jesus went to the cross and was crucified as THE BAD GUY. So says the Scripture in 2nd Corinthians 5:21, “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” In suffering persecution from the churches (sadly of all places), I am a partaker of Christ's sufferings.

It is tragic that my fiercest ministry enemies over the past 21 years, have not been the ungodly heathen world; but rather, professed Christian pastors who do not love people. Neither do they love God, because it is impossible to love God while banning a hurting man from attending church. Marty Herron, Joe Hensen, Gary Walton and Jared Baldwin (Harvest Baptist Church on Guam); Sean Quinlan (Lighthouse Baptist Church on Guam); Jeff Redlin and Timothy Zacharias (PCC's Campus Church), all fully knew that my wife abandoned and divorced me since 2006. They all knew that I suffer from constant chronic neck pain from stenosis and radiculitis in my cervical spine, since 2004.

They all knew that I am lonely without a wife for a companion. Yet, every one of them threw me under the bus and left me for dead. They couldn't have cared less. All that mattered to them was their God damned 6-digit salary! It is blood money! It is filthy lucre! Real great “Christians,” huh. When a pastor is more interested in ecumenical unity than being divided over truth, he has forfeited his right to be a pastor. PCC has sinfully set the bar very low. They have dipped their sails in sinful compromise. The Bob Jones graduate pastors at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam are all hellbound with their accursed false gospel of Lordship SalvationDevil's bibles and Wrong Repentance (aka, the “turn away from your sinful ways” to be saved heresy). These are imposters who masquerade as men of God, but in reality they are wolves in sheep's clothing. People just want to be loved.

What saith the Scripture? Romans 16:17-18, “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” The only place that you will find Lordship Salvation in the Bible is in Matthew 7:21-23. They cried out “Lord, Lord” to Jesus, boasting of their service for Him on earth, but Christ denied knowing them as His sheep, and they were cast into outer darkness in Hell.

The greatest danger facing our churches today is indifference!!! Sadly, pastors just don't care anymore. But this is nothing knew, pastors were quitting 50 years ago. Read what Dr. Jack Hyles said in the 1970's:
“I've been preaching a long time and I've watched a lot of things happen. To me the saddest thing that I've watched in my life, apart from my own country going to the Devil nearly, has been the change of preachers and churches. I find myself amazed and stunned with near disbelief, as I see men who once stood who don't stand anymore ...I know every week I cry some, I mean cry, I mean tear cry, because of preachers who are turning.”

SOURCE: Pastor Jack Hyles, 1972 sermon titled, 'I SHALL NOT BE MOVED'
Sadly, PCC doesn't stand. Dr. Hyles taught us at Hyles-Anderson College (HAC) that only preachers can reproduce preachers. PCC puts teachers into their classrooms, who can only reproduce more teachers. That is why PCC doesn't stand against anything. PCC propagates an impotent brand of lifeless Christianity today that does nothing to expose false teachers, false bibles and false brethren. Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982) rightly said: “The great need of the hour is preaching preachers!”

Dr. Jack Hyles nailed PCC in the following true statement:
“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
PCC has no compassion! They do not love or care about individual people, of which I am living proof, banned from attending Campus Church since August 2, 2022. Jeff Redlin is a disgrace for a pastor and ought to be fired. If that is how they mistreat hurting divorced people like me, casting them away, then would you really want to feed your child to the pack of wolves at PCC? I sure wouldn't! I know that a man of God like Dr. Jack Hyles or Pastor Jeff Fugate would never refuse to allow someone to attend church. I sit home of Sunday and Wednesday nights with no church to attend, because of the hatred at PCC and Campus Church, who play God with people's lives. The Bible warns against being a respecter of persons in James 2:1, “My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.”

Pastor Stacey Shiflett Preaches A False Gospel

Matthew 7:15, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

Thank you! Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do. The Devil is a beautiful liar. Not one verse in the inspired King James Bible teaches to repent "of your sins" or to "turn from your sins" to be saved, Hebrews 6;1 speaks of repentance from "dead works," not from sinful works. In Jonas 3;10 the Bible says that turning from evil ways is works! Jonah 3;10b, "And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way..." Tuning from sinful ways is WORKS!!! You don't turn from your sins to be saved; Christ died on the cross to pay for your sins and mine.

Nowhere in the Bible does it say that you must be willing to turn away from your sins to be saved. The truth is that we all continue living in sin, saved and unsaved alike. The only thing that a person automatically gets at the time of salvation is the gift of the indwelling Holy Spirit (1st John 3;24). Everything from that point forward is a separate matter of discipleship. Service is something entirely different than salvation. Discipleship is something different than sonship. 

Pilgrim's Progress author John Bunyan (1628-1688) said it best:
“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
Yes, incompetent preachers, evangelists, missionaries, chaplains, laymen and pastors everywhere nowadays are corrupting the Gospel, casting stumblingblocks before the people, damning men's souls to the Lake of Fire forever. In this blog I am going to share with you several excellent helpful quotes differentiating between SALVATION versus DISCIPLESHIP to help you see the difference. Bravo John Bunyan! Yes, Amen, that is 100% sound doctrine. We must keep service separate from salvation, lest we corrupt God's Word and cast stumbling blocks before the people. Every Christian is an adopted child of God John 1;12-13; Romans 8;15).

Here are some more helpful quotes differentiating between discipleship versus sonship...
"It is an inexcusable error to confront sinners with problems that concern the Christian life and call upon them to make promises regarding them. An unsaved person is never called upon to surrender himself to God. The saving act is in no instance represented as our 'giving ourselves to God'; it is, on the contrary, taking His Son as our Savior." —Ryrie, Charles, "Balancing the Christian Life"; Moody Press, Inc., 1969 (p. 170)

"The second approach finds faith in the gospel alone an 'easy Believism' and seeks to add something to faith in order to accomplish salvation. To repent is to 'change one's mind,' and to believe is to remove one's trust from that in which it has rested and place it in Christ." —Howard, William, "Is Faith Enough to Save?," Bibliotheca Sacra; January-March, 1942 (p. 99) 

"This kind of faith is not 'easy believism'. It is not easy to say, 'I can't save myself, I must recognize that there is something wrong with me, and I must seek help from someone else.'" —Hook, H. Phillip, "A Biblical Definition Of Saving Faith," Bibliotheca Sacra; April-June, 1964 (pp. 133, 138)

"Eternal life is free. Discipleship is immeasurably hard. The former is attained by faith alone, the latter by a faith that works... the former brings with it the righteousness of God so that a man is 'justified freely by his grace' (Romans 3:24). The latter develops a personal righteousness, based on good deeds, so that a man was also 'justified by works' (James 2:24). The former constituted the believer God's workmanship, the latter fulfilled the wonderful purpose for which he had been created. The former cost man nothing, the latter could cost him everything, including life itself." —Hodges, Zane C, "The Hungry Inherit"; Moody Press, Inc., 1972 (pp. 114, 115)

"For the unregenerate man, repentance is the change of mind whereby he turns from unbelief to faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ." —Post, Roger, "The Meanings of the Words Translated 'Repent' and 'Repentance' in the New Testament"; Master's Thesis, Wheaton College, June 1972 (p. 80)

"There are those who, in their zeal to get people to turn from their sinful ways and receive the Lord, almost put repentance on a par with believing... Repentance, as it relates to Christ, means to change our minds about Him, who He is and what He's done to provide forgiveness and deliverance from our sins. When we place faith in Jesus as having taken our place personally on the cross and borne the penalty due our sins, then we're automatically repenting, because we couldn't accept Him in this way without having had to change our minds in some way concerning Him." —Lindsey, Hal, "The Liberation of Planet Earth"; Zondervan Publishing House, 1974 (pp. 136, 137)

"Discipleship is frequently equated with salvation and often erroneously made a condition for becoming a Christian." —Pentecost, J. Dwight, "Design For Discipleship"; Zondervan Publishing House, 1971 (p. 11)

"Certainly discipleship is a most important aspect of our relation to Christ, but it belongs to the sphere of Christian life rather than entrance upon that life... One does not become a disciple in order to become a Christian, but because he has become a Christian by faith in the Savior, it is fitting that he embark upon a life of discipleship." —Harrison, Everett F., "Must Christ Be Lord To Be Savior?-No"; Eternity, September 1959 (p. 14)

"There is no more piously subtle abrogation of the Gospel than to tell a Sinner that he must not only believe in the Savior, but dedicate himself to do God's will, crown the Savior Lord of his life, etc., etc. Obviously, dedication and service are highly desirable, but they are the privilege and the duty of the saved, never a condition of salvation for the unsaved (cf. Romans 12:1, 2)." —Unger, Merrill F., "God Is Waiting To Meet You"; Moody Press, 1975 (pp. 117, 118)

"People are sometimes led to believe that there is saving value in some public confession of Christ, or profession of a decision. 'With the heart man believeth unto righteousness.' This is salvation. 'With the mouth confession is made unto salvation.' This is the voice of the newborn child speaking to and of its father. The only condition on which one may be saved is to believe." —Chafer, Lewis Sperry, "Salvation"; Dunham Publishing Company, 1917 (p. 46)
Amen, that's good stuff! The following is one of my favorite preacher quotes. Pastor M. R. DeHaan (1891-1965) said it well:
"There is a vast difference between coming to Jesus for salvation and coming after Jesus for service. Coming to Christ makes one a believer, while coming after Christ makes one a disciple. All believers are not disciples. To become a believer one accepts the invitation of the Gospel, to be a disciple one obeys the challenge to a life of dedicated service and separation. Salvation comes through the sacrifice of Christ; discipleship comes only by sacrifice of self and surrender to His call for devoted service. Salvation is free, but discipleship involves paying the price of a separated walk. Salvation can't be lost because it depends upon God's faithfulness, but discipleship can be lost because it depends upon our faithfulness." —DeHaan, M.R., "Hebrews"; Zondervan Publishing House, 1959 (p. 117)
Salvation is not a reward for the righteous, it is a gift for the guilty! Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith. Turning away from sinful ways would be a work. Faith puts all of the merit where it belongs, on the object of our faith, Jesus and His work. If to “repent” means to forsake our sinful ways TO BE SAVED, but Jesus already paid for our sins by dying on the cross, then what are we repenting from? The true Gospel always points you to CHRIST; a false gospel always points to YOU.

Please BEWARE dear reader of the Devil's deadly neo-evangelical heresy today in most churches, which errantly teaches that you must be willing to stop sinning to get to Heaven. That is a counterfeit plan of salvation of partial faith in Christ plus works. JESUS PAID IT ALL! Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again.

When the Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas in Acts 16:30b: "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?," they simply answered in ๐—”๐—ฐ๐˜๐˜€ ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฒ:๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿญ๐—ฎ, "๐—•๐—˜๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—˜๐—ฉ๐—˜ ๐—ข๐—ก ๐—ง๐—›๐—˜ ๐—Ÿ๐—ข๐—ฅ๐—— ๐—๐—˜๐—ฆ๐—จ๐—ฆ ๐—–๐—›๐—ฅ๐—œ๐—ฆ๐—ง, ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ..."

Paul and Silas DIDN'T tell the Roman jailer that he must first be willing to stop sinning to be saved. When the people asked Jesus in John 6:28b, "What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?," Jesus simply replied in ๐—๐—ผ๐—ต๐—ป ๐Ÿฒ:๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿต๐—ฏ, "๐—ง๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ธ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—š๐—ผ๐—ฑ, ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐˜†๐—ฒ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—บ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ผ๐—บ ๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ต ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜." Jesus DIDN'T tell the people that they must first be willing to stop their sinning to be saved.

Pastor Stacey Shiflett is Teaching LIES!

Pastor Shiflett says that he won't even bother to share the Gospel with someone who isn't willing to forsake their sinning. That is so wrong, unbiblical and a bad attitude. Jesus shared the truth of the Gospel with the wicked Pharisees, trying to get them to believe to be saved. God told Isaiah to keep preaching to the rebellious people, to fatten their hearts with truth. The Bible doesn't command us as saints to preach the Gospel to some people; but rather, "to every creature" (Mark 16;15). Noah preached the Gospel to a rebellious world for 120 years, but no one listened. Pastor Shiflett is wrong to withhold the Gospel from unbelievers for whom it is intended by God.

What disturbs me is hearing a bunch of men in the audience shouting “Amen in agreement with Pastor Shiflett's damnable counterfeit plan of salvation. The Greek word for repent in the New Testament regarding salvation is always either the noun form “metanoia” (a change of mind), or the verb form “metanoeo” (to think differently). In the case of Judas Iscariot who repented of his sins in Matthew 27:3, a completely different Greek word is used: “metamellomaiin” (to regret). Carefully notice that even though Judas repented of his sins, he went to Hell in his sins and unbelief to be tormented forever without rest nor hope.
Matthew 27:3, “Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.”
Judas was a child of the Devil, like so many religious people in this world. Judas was one of Jesus' followers, and in fact one of His very apostles. Unfortunately, Judas was not saved and perished in his sins and unbelief. Sadly, Judas went to Hell. Let us define some theological terms to gain a better understanding:
  • penitence = sorrow for sin
  • penance = making a mend for sin
  • reformation = turning away from sin
  • repentance = a change of mind
Judas felt sorry for what he had done (penitence), betraying Jesus, an innocent man. Judas tried to make a mend (penance), returning the 30 pieces of silver to the Pharisees. Judas was a changed man (reformation). Interestingly, the Pharisees called it “blood money, when they were the very ones who concocted the evil plot in the first place to destroy Jesus. But in all of this Judas never repented toward God of his unbelief in Christ. Acts 20:21, “Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. I love what Pastor Harry Ironside (1876-1951) said about repentance:
“The Gospel is not a call to repentance, or to amendment of our ways, to make restitution for past sins, or to promise to do better in the future. These things are proper in their place, but they do not constitute the Gospel; for the Gospel is not good advice to be obeyed, it is good news to be believed. Do not make the mistake then of thinking that the Gospel is a call to duty or a call to reformation, a call to better your condition, to behave yourself in a more perfect way than you have been doing in the past …

Nor is the Gospel a demand that you give up the world, that you give up your sins, that you break off bad habits, and try to cultivate good ones. You may do all these things, and yet never believe the Gospel and consequently never be saved at all.”

SOURCE: Harry A. Ironside, from the tract: 'What Is The Gospel?'
That was well said by Dr. Ironside, one of my favorite free grace Gospel preachers.

In the Gospel of John we find the word "believe" mentioned 85 times, but the word "repent" is not mentioned even once. That is because repentance is automatic, included with BELIEVING. The man who believes has also repented; the man who repents (i.e., changes his mind) has believed. That is why repentance is not mentioned even once in the Gospel of John, which according to John 20;31 is God's Gospel tract.

Here are about a dozen thought-provoking images with messages that contend for the faith, refuting the Devil's lie that you must be willing to stop sinning to be saved. You are very welcome to share these on social media, to help contend for the Christian faith. We need to uphold the simplicity that is in Christ, which is the unadulterated free grace Gospel. Kindly said, the inspired Word of God exposes Pastor Stacey Shiflett as a damnable heretic. Jesus is precious!!! Thank you for reading. There is a great video sermon at the end of this blog by Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold, in which he explains repentance in the Old Testament and then the New Testament in a separate video on YouTube...

I highly recommend watching these helpful videos by Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold...
