God's Very Simple Plan Of Salvation

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

Since the beginning of human civilization, the Devil has tried to tempt humans to disobey God. The Devil's name is Satan, who fell from his lofty position as one of God's archangels in Heaven. In Ezekiel 28:11-17 we find what is called in theology, “Double Fulfillment.” That is, this passage of Scripture has two parallel applications. Although Ezekiel 28:11-17 is speaking about the king of Tyrus, it also describes Lucifer and his fall from glory. We see another example of Double Fulfillment in Hebrews chapter 7, which speaks of Melchisedec. This passage is also clearly about the precious Lord Jesus Christ, who is without beginning or end, the King of Righteousness (Hebrews 7:1-4).

Lucifer became Satan, a malicious spirit being who labors night and day to kill, steal and destroy. As such, the Devil desires for for and everyone else to go to Hell forever. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again. Sadly, it is rare nowadays to hear preachers even use the term “born-again.” What saith the Scripture? John 3:3, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

So how do you get born again? What does that even mean? Well, the Bible says that when Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden, death passed upon all men. Romans 5:12, “
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Every human being born into this world since Adam, has been born with an inherent sinful nature. It is a part of who we are as humans. Children do not need to be taught how to lie, cheat and do wrong; they need to be trained up to tell the truth, be honest and to always do what is right.

Because of our sins, there is a penalty, which according to the Bible is death. Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Carefully notice the contrast in Romans 6:23, between the deadly wages of sin that we deserve, versus the free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. No one needs to go to Hell forever. God desires for all men, even the worst of criminals, to repent of their unbelief and come to Jesus Christ in faith to be saved (2nd Peter 3:6).

Also, please understand that there is a difference between being spiritually dead versus the second death in the Lake of Fire. Every human being is born spiritually dead (Ephesians 2:1-2). But only Christ-rejecters are case into the everlasting Lake of Fire (Hell). Those sinners who never trust Christ as their Savior will perish in their unregenerated state. They were born spiritually dead into this world, and they will die spiritually dead. That is why everyone must be “born again,” it is not optional if you want to enter into the Kingdom of God.

You would be shocked friend, if in the Baptist church that you hopefully attend, you start asking the people around you if they know for certain they're going to Heaven. Ask them why they know. You will be shocked, as I was, to learn that at least half of them haven't a clue. I'm not kidding. I know a good elderly man, who has been an usher in a local Baptist church in Pensacola for the past five years, but when I witnessed to him, he told me that water baptism is necessary to go to Heaven. That is his pastor's fault for not feeding his congregation.

In that dear man's church, the pastor is always telling everyone that they must have “a relationship with Christ to get to Heaven. What does that even mean? Judas had a relationship with Jesus, but John 6:70 says Judas had a devil in him. Judas died in his sins because of unbelief, and is sadly burning in Hell forever. The unsaved wicked Pharisees also had a relationship with Jesus, but perished in their sin of unbelief. I am so thankful that I know I am a born-again child of God. If you don't know that friend, you can and should KNOW beyond any shadow of a doubt (1st John 5:13).

Salvation is solely based on what Christ has already DONE for you through Calvary's cross, and the blood which He sprinkled on the Mercy Seat in Heaven (Hebrews 9:12, 22-24; 12:24). So many churchgoers have been lied to, misled by their heathen pastor to think that they are saved by partial faith in Christ, PLUS something else (repenting of sin, following Christ as Lord, living the Christian life, et cetera). I tell you that there is no plus anything in God's simple plan of redemption. You simply CEASE from your own false religious dead works (i.e., trusting in Roman Catholicism, good works, Mother Mary, the Pope, Mormonism, Hara Krishna, religion, sacraments, et cetera), and come to God as a needy guilty sinner, completely RESTING in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 4:10-11). That is what repentance is, a change of mind, turning from your UNBELIEF to BELIEF in Jesus as the Christ, the only begotten Son of God. When the Roman jailer asked Paul and Silas the $64,000 question: “What must I do to be saved?,” the answer was a simple: “BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST” (Acts 16:30-31).

It is important that you understand what you are being saved from. That is why I took the time to explain these things to you friend. It is not enough to merely believe the Good News of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen to get to Heaven; you absolutely must realize and admit to yourself and God that YOU ARE A GUILTY SINNER:
Romans 3:18-20, “There is no fear of God before their eyes. 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.”
God made two great divisions to His inspired Word: Old Testament and New Testaments (or respectively, LAW and CHRIST). 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. God's Old Testament law (which is summed up in the Ten Commandments) was intended by God to be used as a measuring-stick, by which when compared humans fall short of being sinless and perfect. Thus, realizing our shortcomings to perfectly keep God's law, we then realize our need for the blessed Savior, Jesus. That is what Galatians 3:24-26 is teaching.

This should make it obvious to you then, dear reader, why it is so wrong for any preacher to falsely teach that you must turn away from your sinful ways to be saved. Evangelist Ken Ham preaches this damnable heresy! Forsaking your sinful ways was never the intended purpose of God's law. Does God want you to turn away from a deliberate lifestyle of sinning? Yes, of course, but that has absolutely nothing to do with receiving His free gift of eternal life. You must keep living the Christian life (which is our SERVICE for Christ, or sanctification); completely separate from getting born-again (which is SALVATION in Christ, or justification. 

Pilgrim's Progress book author John Bunyan (1628-1688) well understood this very important distinction, as a free grace preacher of the saving Gospel:
“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.” —Evangelist John Bunyan
Also, Pastor M.R. DeHaan (1891-1965) had a very good understanding of this important distinction between sanctification and justification:
“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.” Pastor M.R. DeHaan, Hebrews. Zondervan Publishing House, 1959 (p. 117)
I hope you can now see dear reader why it is so very, very, very important to always keep getting saved completely separate from changes in our behavior, serving Christ, following Him as “Lord of our life, turning away from our sinful ways, repenting of sin, running the Christian race faithfully, taking up our cross, giving up the old ways, surrendering all to Christ, counting the cost and paying the price, forsaking a lifestyle of sinning, living a lifestyle of repentance, et cetera, et cetera.

All of the preceding vain things have been wickedly added to the Gospel by today's corrupt neo-evangelical pastors, evangelists and Bible college professors. You may do all of these noble things and yet never have been saved at all. You don't get born-again by doing good works. You don't get born-again through the sacrament of water baptism. Sacraments” are totally unbiblical and you ought never give any attention to such nonsense. The Bible teaches water baptism as a public profession of one's faith, but it is a command for BELIEVERS only, not a sacrament of any church. Likewise, the Lord's Supper is a command from God only for BELIEVERS, a time to remember what Jesus has done for on through Calvary's cruel cross. Please do not ever think, refer or partake of any sacraments, because they are unbiblical. There is no spiritual grace or power bestowed upon the recipient of water baptism or the communion. Beware of formal religion that corrupts the truth of God's inspired Word.

I love this helpful quote from Pastor Harry A. Ironside (1876-1951), which shows that Dr. Ironside had a very sound understanding that our service, sanctification and discipleship as Christian believers, has absolutely nothing to do with receiving God's free gift of eternal life by faith alone in Jesus Christ:
“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 sermon: What Is The Gospel?
One of my favorite authors is Michael P. Bowen. In his excellent defense of the Christian faith titled, 'I NEVER KNEW YOU,' Michael Bowen writes these wonderful words:
I am at eternal odds with the false, counterfeit messages of salvation-by-works that are taught from virtually every pulpit today, on every television channel, and on every Christian radio station; however, I am not at eternal odds with the individuals who preach these counterfeit messages. My heart literally goes out to all of them because they simply do not understand Christ’s plan of salvation. They have been lied to by a crafty enemy named Satan, whose sole aim is to take as many people with him to the lake of fire as he can possibly manage to steal away from God using a counterfeit plan of salvation that appears so real, so genuine, and so holy that few ever realize they have been deceived by it. Oh reader, so many of today’s professing Christians who think they are going to heaven when they die are not going to make it to heaven as they had assumed because they’ve been lied to by today’s error-filled gospel messages.

A tree without fruit is still a tree with roots. This is evidenced by the parable of the sower and the seed in Luke 8:12-15. Of the four groups, only the first group are unsaved, because the Devil removed the seed from their soul before it could sprout into new life. The second and third groups represent believers who never mature to bear fruit (leading others to Christ). They never matured into fruit-bearing Christians, because of their shallow roots; or because as with the third group, they become choked by the cares, riches and pleasures of this life. Ah, but the fourth group matured, having a good and honest heart the Bible says, keeping the Lord's Word, bearing much fruit unto Christ (cf., John 15:1-7). Just because the second and third groups didn't bear fruit, didn't mean they were not saved (as Ray Comfort errantly teaches).

I have shared these truths with you dear reader, to help solidify your understanding of what the Gospel is not. More people will miss Heaven someday simply because they trusted in TOO MUCH! Everything that is complicated about getting saved is God's part. The only thing that God demands of us to be born-again is to place our childlike faith in Jesus, His only begotten Son.

God's simple plan of salvation is so easy, free and plain to understand that even a small child can be saved. God needed to make His plan of salvation so simple, because the world is full of ignorant, unlearned and stupid people. I say that respectfully and with kindness, but it is THE TRUTH. There are a lot of not so bright humans on the planet. That doesn't make them better or worse than anyone else, it just means that God needed to make His plan of redemption for mankind utterly uncomplicated.

In 2nd Corinthians 11:3-4 the Bible even refers to the saving Gospel as “the simplicity that is in Christ.” We are saved by BELIEVING the Gospel. The “Gospel means GOOD NEWS!!! It is the Good News (or Glad Tidings) that God sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, into the world, to die on a cross to pay our massive debt of sin. Jesus died on a cross! He was buried. And three days later Christ bodily resurrected by a miracle of God from the dead. These three things comprise THE GOSPEL: Jesus' death on the cross, burial and physical resurrection.
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:”
There you have it, THE GOSPEL!!! I didn't see anything in there about turning away from sinful ways, did you? Nope! Oh, how men make everything complicated! God's simple plan of salvation is to just put your childlike faith (confidence, trust) in Jesus Christ. God knows that you and I have never seen Jesus, so it is okay to just believe on His name. 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:” Just take God at His Word as recorded in the Holy Bible. Simply BELIEVE the record which God Has given us in His Word of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen for our justification. What an awesome God and Savior!!!

America Is Going To Hell Because Of Neo-Evangelicals

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.”

Neo-evangelicalism is a deadly infectious disease, which has crept into most of our churches today. Tragically this includes most so-called “
independent Baptist churches. The word “neo” means “new.” Today's churches are infatuated with a new modern kind of music, a new type of less offensive preaching from the pulpit, a new tolerant attitude toward homosexuals, new Bible revisions, a new understanding of Bible repentance which requires a change of behavior to get to Heaven, et cetera. New is not always good! Here is a helpful quote from former faithful Sword of the Lord editor, Dr. Curtis Hutson:
“Evangelicalism and fundamentalism is not the same! When you rename it and call it: 'Evangelical Fundamentalism,' leave me out of it, you've changed it then. The thing that concerns me now, is so many young preacher boys who go off to college and don't even have a good class on Contemporary Theology. Because some preachers get up and push neo-evangelicalism and fundamentalism in the same expression, and try to make it one and the same, because they don't understand it. A lot of young preachers think it is the same. THERE'S A BIG, BIG, DIFFERENCE! Old evangelicalism based on the theology of fundamentalism was supplanted by neo-evangelicalism; based on the theology of infiltration rather than separation as the Bible clearly declared we ought to do.” [emphasis added] —Pastor Curtis Hutson, “Things That Are Different Are Not The Same
Neo-evangelicalism is ruining our country. Walk into nearly any Baptist church today and you will hear Calvinism being taught. People are quick to get angry, defensive and malicious over their religious beliefs, that their incompetent pastors has brainwashed them with. I'm talking about the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation. Dr. Jack Hyles wrote these helpful words:
Lordship salvation would make salvation a trade or a deal or maybe even a bribe.  It would take away the simple reception of Christ for eternal life and would become God giving us something if we give Him something. God would say to us, “You give Me something; I'll give you something. We will trade, and you will be saved.” Salvation is not my giving God something and God giving me something; salvation is God giving me something and my receiving it. Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “Lordship Salvation” (chapter 11 from his book: “Salvation Is More Than Being Saved”)
I love this helpful quote from Pastor Harry Ironside (1876-1951):
“When anyone comes promising salvation to those ‘who make full surrender' of all that they have to God, and who 'pay the price of full salvation' he is preaching another gospel, for the price was paid on Calvary's cross and the work that saves is finished. It was Christ Jesus who made the full surrender when He yielded His life on Calvary that saves us, not our surrender in any way to Him.” —Dr. Harry A. Ironside, from the Gospel tract, 'Another Gospel'
The music is so terrible in today's lifeless churches. The old hymns of the Christian faith had a beautiful melody to them. Whereas music nowadays is boring, monotone, lacking melody and does not stir the heart the way it should. Modern Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) will catapult the listener into the emotional astrosphere, but there is no practical application. That is, there is no doctrine. I mean, look at the life-changing words from this old hymn, 
“On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand”:
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.
Now read the lame contemporary lyrics from the popular song You Say by Lauren Daigle:
I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I'm not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up

Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low
Remind me once again just who I am because I need to know
Ooh-oh
No wonder our churches are falling apart! This is the insanity of the neo-evangelical movement across America, and it is dangerous. They can keep their new everything, just give me the old time-tested inspired King James Bible. Just give me the old-time religion that preached a simple free grace Gospel, not this crazy heretical Lordship Damnation today (aka, Lordship Salvation).

Please dear reader, RUN from neo-evangelical churches. Neo-evangelicals refuse to contend for the Christian faith, and why would they, since they cannot even make up their mind which Bible version God's authored?

Holy Bible Wickedly Changed For Copyright Reasons

I detest the neo-evangelical movement today. The neo-evangelicals at Bob Jones University camp are leading the way in apostasy. The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has gone totally apostate!!! New SBC president J.D. Greear says that Christians ought to be the fiercest advocates of the LGBTQ homosexual community. That is blasphemy against God. Apostasy (a turning away from the God of the inspired King James Bible) is everywhere today!

Women in the neo-evangelical movement all wear pants, halter tops, slacks on the ballfield, and spandex while walking down the neighborhood with their children. It is horrible! Morality is not a priority in today's new churches. Sin is not preached against. There is no mention of a burning Hell with fire, brimstone and torment for unbelieving sinners (John 3:36; Revelation 21:8). Neo-evangelicals won't stand against anything, except against THE TRUTH. They coddle their congregations with dozens of Bible perversions, damn men's souls to Hell with a counterfeit gospel of partial faith in Christ plus works (aka, the damnable heresy that you must turn away from a lifestyle of sinning in order to get to Heaven).

I thank God the the truly fundamental Baptist churches across America that are still fighting the good fight of faith. Man's churches are corrupt, but God's local New Testament churches are still going strong. You don't here about them, little church families tucked away in rural country towns all across the country, faithfully serving the Lord. The megachurches are all a big mess!
Please look for a church that only uses one Bible, the inspired King James Bible. Only attend a church that preaches a free grace Gospel, salvation by faith alone in the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen. RUN from any church whose pastors says you must forsake your sins to be saved. That is works!!!

Neo-evangelicals don't pay attention to the details. They are okay with using dozens of different Bible versions. They are okay with having multiple plans of salvation. Neo-evangelicals view a free grace Gospel and Lordship Salvation as both falling within the realm of orthodox theology, but nothing could be further from THE TRUTH.

Take a look and compare what Dr. Curtis Hutson taught about salvation, versus what Dr. John MacArthur heretically teaches:
There simply cannot be two Gospels. Galatians 1:6-7 confirm this truth, “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.”
  • Marty Herron perverts the Gospel of Christ, adding the unbiblical requirement to forsake a lifestyle of sinning to get to Heaven.
  • Billy Graham perverts the Gospel of Christ, adding the unbiblical requirements that you must count the cost and pay the price of confessing Christ publicly, taking up your cross and following Christ as Lord.
  • Steve Pettit perverts the Gospel of Christ, adding the requirement that you must faithfully run the Christian race until the end of life, in order to earn the reward of Heaven (those are his own words).
  • John MacArthur perverts the Gospel of Christ, by authoring a book titled: “Hard To Believe” in which he adds the unbiblical requirement to surrender all of your ambitions, your will and your life to serve Christ faithfully, and to forsake your lifestyle of sinning, to forsake the world, and to follow Jesus as your “Lord” no matter what the cost may be.
  • Joel Osteen perverts the Gospel of Christ, adding the unbiblical requirements to repent of (turn away from) your sinning, and to surrender to Jesus as absolute “Lord” of your life.
  • Ken Ham perverts the Gospel of Christ, by adding the unbiblical requirement to “turn from your sinful ways” to get to Heaven.
I've only mentioned a handful of deadly FALSE PROPHETS today, who are damning multitudes of souls to the Lake of Fire. Please BEWARE of anything “new.” Please BEWARE of neo-evangelical churches!!!

A Proper Attitude Toward Sinners

Psalms 106:6, “We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.”

The Word of God teaches that all mankind are sinners. NO ONE is a shining example of what the rest of us should be like. Although it is possible to live above REPROACH, no one is capable of living above SIN. We are all dirty, rotten, guilty, sinners in God's eyes. James 2:10 teaches that committing even one sin makes us guilty of all sins, that is, even one sin is enough to send a person to the Lake of Fire forever and ever.

It matters not how big or little of a sinner you may think you are in your own eyes, the Bible warns that we are all filthy sinners, and all sinners go to Hell unless those sins are forgiven in Christ Jesus. Pastor Jack Hyles used to beautifully say... “First Baptist Church of Hammond will become a great church when we stop saying, 'He has sinned!' and 'She has sinned!' and we start saying, 'WE HAVE SINNED!'”

Thankfully Jesus paid the price for OUR SINS on the cross of Calvary's hill, or else we'd all go straight to Hell and get the eternal punishment in fire that we deserve. We have ALL SINNED and the only way of escape is through God's righteousness which is BY FAITH in Jesus Christ:
Romans 3:19-23, “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. But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
Isn't that beautiful? The Bible speaks of the “righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ.” The Bible teaches that there is NO DIFFERENCE between one person verses another, for ALL HAVE SINNED. No one has arrived. No human being can boast of their own goodness and lack of wickedness. Everyone's sins are either known beforehand or afterwards at the judgment when we all stand before God and give account for our life...
1st Timothy 5:24-25, “Some men's sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after. Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hid.”
Like king David in the Bible, who was quick to judge others before he went into what is often called “deep sin” himself (2nd Samuel 12:5-6), we all tend to be very self-righteous and hard on others who sin. This is because most people don't know what it is like to suffer public shame for their sins, enduring total humiliation, being stigmatized, being shunned by a community for doing wrong, and even in some cases going to prison. When this happens to a Christian, their entire viewpoint forever changes (2nd Samuel 12:7; Psalms 119:67,71), bringing a new grasp of the abounding love, grace and mercy of God which has been provided to us all through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. You'll never fully fathom the depths of God's love and forgiveness until you've been brought low yourself as a big sinner, hitting rock bottom in the eyes of God and man.
“God will still use you, I don't care what you've done!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “If Thou Should Mark Iniquities, Who Could Stand?
I'll guarantee you that the adulterous women who was dragged by the Pharisees before the presence of the Lord in John 8:1-11 to be stoned, but was then pardoned by the Lord and released, never would have thereafter condemned anyone for their sins. In other words, if you ever come to the realization that you are a woeful sinner in the eyes of God, you'll never point a finger of condemnation at anyone again. It's not as easy to gossip when you're a known criminal or the biggest sinner in town.

The reality of the matter is that we are all horrible sinners and criminals to some degree. If you've ever deliberately drove 5-miles over the speed limit, you are a law-breaking criminal. The truth is that we are all deep sinners. There is no such thing as white sins, or little sins. There is no such thing as venial sins nor mortal sins (a false doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church). Not praying is just as wicked as murdering someone. Gossiping is just as sinful as homosexuality. All sin is horrible in God's eyes. We are all woeful sinners!

(a beautiful life-changing MP3 sermon by Pastor Jack Hyles)

Perhaps you don't consider yourself a horrible sinner. If so, you're deceived. If you're in the habit of reading bad news in your local newspaper everyday, then you likely think you're not so bad compared to the horrible stories you read. Yet, as we just learned from James 2:10 and 1st Timothy 5:24-25, we are all guilty criminals in God's eyes. I love the following quote by Pastor Jack Hyles:
“If we could ever hate the sin in ourselves as much as we hate the sin in others, we might have some idea what His Book is all about.” —Pastor Jack Hyles (a quote from page 322 of the awesome biography of Dr. Hyles titled, “The Fundamental Man”)
Are You A Restorer Or Accuser Of Our Brethren?

Galatians 6:1-2, “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.”

The following helpful words are from chapter two of Pastor Jack Hyles excellent book titled, HOW TO TREAT DIFFERENT TYPES OF CHURCH MEMBERS:
8. The word, "bear," in Galatians 6:2 implies that we are to bear the guilt of the fallen and restored one. Then the word "burdens" in Galatians 6:2 teaches us that we are to enter into the yoke with them and to pull with them in order to help them to win the victory and gain strength. God is telling us here that when one sins, all have sinned. It would be a wonderful day for churches when every member takes the blame for the sin of one and realizes that the sin of one is really the sin of all.

SOURCE: Dr. Jack Hyles, chapter 2, Treatment Of The Fallen, from his classic book, HOW TO TREAT DIFFERENT TYPES OF CHURCH MEMBERS
Isn't that beautiful! When a fellow brother or sister in the Lord sins, we are supposed to enter into the yoke of burden with them, as if we had sinned our self, and help carry their sorrow, grief and shame. Instead of saying like the heathen world, “he has sinned” or “she has sinned,” we ought to say in meekness, humility and unconditional love, “WE HAVE SINNED.” Amen!

Notice that the Word of God defines a “hypocrite” as someone who considers another person as being a more rotten sinner than them self:
Matthew 7:1-5, “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.”
The truth is that judgmental people only do so because there is sin in their own life. For if a believer truly walks in harmony, in sweet fellowship, with the dear Savior, there is going to be a spirit of meekness and humility toward others who have gone into sin. God is in the ministry of restoration, not destruction:
Luke 9:51-56, “And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem. And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.”
Whereas we read in John 4:42 concerning another group of Samaritans who received the Lord, this particular group in Luke 9:51-56 didn't. The disciples were upset and asked Jesus if He was going to command them to pray down fire and brimstone to destroy the people for their unbelief. Jesus looked at them like they were insane and said He came to save sinners, not destroy them. Luke 19:10, “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

How tragic it is that we destroy each other in our churches these days, ready to bring down the wrath of God upon our sisters and brothers with whom we disagree. Truly, the Christian army is the only army in the world that slays its wounded. Proverbs 10:12, “Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.” Galatians 5:15, “But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.” God hates gossip, backbiting and believers hurting one another. Jesus Christ Himself came as a humble servant, washing the stinking, dirty, feet of His disciples. The Lord commanded us to do the same to each other, caring for one another in love and sincerity of heart. The Bible says in Galatians 6:2 to “Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.” Everyone has burdens.


My friend, whether you love or hate others is never put to the test more than when someone(s) sins. The Bible says that hatred stirreth up strifes; but love covers ALL SINS. That means what's in the past stays there. What HAPPENS at Grandma's house STAYS at grandma's house!!! If God forgave us, so also should we forgive others.
“If there's anybody in the Bible that God had disdain for, it was those that had disdain for other sinners!” —an awesome quote from the MP3 sermon by Dr. Jack Hyles titled, “If Thou Should Mark Iniquities, Who Could Stand?
Those Sinful Christians!

The Godless world gnashes upon the righteous with their teeth the Bible says, meaning that the world hates Jesus Christ and anyone who is a born-again Christian (John 15:19). The heathen world scrutinize our every word and action, looking for something to discredit our testimony for the Lord. They are doing exactly what their spiritual father Satan does best, that is, accuse the brethren day-and-night before God.

When you're a Christian, the whole world is waiting for you to fall. As you just read in Matthew 7:1-5, the Bible warns about condemning others because of their sins. God is the only judge (James 4:12). That's not to say that we as Christian believers shouldn't take a Biblical stand against present-day wickedness, evil agendas and those who openly parade their sins in public. But rather, it means that past sins ought to be left buried where they are.

Proverbs 10:12, “Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.” The way of the Devil is to ACCUSE others. You're never more like the Devil himself than when you bring up the past sins of others to embarrass, discredit, hurt, assassinate their character or shame them. If the truth be told, you're just as much a guilty sinner as the next person. Satan is called “THE ACCUSER OF OUR BRETHREN”...
Revelation 12:10, “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.”
Let me ask you my friend, what is your attitude toward others who go into sin. Do you immediately condemn them? Do you go around gossiping to everyone, “Hey, did you hear about so-and-so? Can you believe what that person did?” Would you damn them to Hell if you had such power? Or do you pray for that person and say in your heart, “But for the grace of God, there go I.”

You ought to feel sorrow in your heart for that person and their loved ones, pondering that it could easily be you instead in that situation. It could be you going to prison. It could be you going through a divorce. It could be you losing your life because of sin. You ought to be thinking, “WE HAVE SINNED!” I read a wonderful Scripture in church tonight at our Wednesday evening Bible study from Psalms 106:6, “WE HAVE SINNED with our fathers, WE HAVE COMMIT INIQUITY, WE HAVE DONE WICKEDLY.”

Even the best of Christians are still sinners in the mortal flesh, prone to disobedience and anger. If we walk in the Spirit we will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. Albeit, we won't always choose to walk in the Spirit because we are still sinners by nature, until the Lord returns and gives us our glorified new body. Amen!

So I say to all my web visitors, whoever you may be... WE HAVE SINNED!!!
“The Devil will make you guilty about your past... You're not worthy to serve God, but neither is anybody else worthy to serve God, and so God's gotta have unworthy people serving Him... That's one reason why we should do everything we can to salvage people.” —a beautiful quote from the MP3 sermon by Dr. Jack Hyles titled, “If Thou Should Mark Iniquities, Who Could Stand?
Every Christian Believer Has Jesus For Our Attorney In Heaven

1st John 2:1, “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” The Greek word for “advocate” is parakletos and means “to run to one's side to help.” Hence, Jesus will be our defense attorney on Judgment Day in eternity. Christ Himself will speak on our behalf, because our sins have been cleansed away by His precious, literal, physical, blood.

Thankfully, Jesus offers to be our Advocate (Defense Attorney) . . . “And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” The word “advocate” coms from the Greek word parakletos and means “an intercessor.” Hence, Jesus Christ is our defense attorney who intercedes for us in God's divine court. This is only made possible by the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ:
1st Peter 1:18-19, “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”
If it weren't for Christ's sacrifice, then divine justice would not be possible for mankind. The penalty for sin had to be paid. Either we had to spend eternity in the Lake of Fire, or else God's Son had to suffer in our place and suffer the wrath of God the Father, Who forsook His Son at Calvary. God only turns His back on Christ-rejecters Who die in their sins. They have chosen by their own unbelief to pay for their own sins. Jesus shed His physical blood for our sins at Calvary, to pay for our sins, thus enabling God the Father (the Prosecutor) to offer mankind complete justification. of debt.
Galatians 6:1-2, “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.” ... James 2:10, “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.”
Romans 4:5, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” WE HAVE ALL SINNED! But the Bible promises that God will count our faith in place of a righteous life. So no matter how evil, sinful, rotten and wicked you may be, God will still save you merely by your faith in the Gospel. That is, if you'll receive Christ's death, burial and resurrection as full-payment for your sins, then you'll be eternally and immediately saved. GOOD IS GOOD! GOD IS GOOD!! GOD IS SO GOOD!!!
“All you have to do is accept His gift of eternal life and you'll go to Heaven when you die!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, an awesome quote from the helpful sermon titled: “I Find No Fault In This Man!

Blessed Be The Name Of The Lord

Job 1:16-21, While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Chaldeans made out three bands, and fell upon the camels, and have carried them away, yea, and slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house: And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.”

The true story of Job in the Old Testament is a very familiar one. Job was a godly man who feared God. Interestingly, it was God and not the Devil who suggested testing Job. That is a remarkable truth. God permitted Satan to destroy Job's life (Job 1:12). With God's permission, the Devil robbed Job of his children, servants, health and wealth. Job's crops were set on fire and his servants murdered 
by marauders. A deadly tornado caused a building to collapse, killing jobs three daughters and ten sons. Jesus warns everyone in John 10:10 that the thief (Satan) only comes with evil intent to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10b).

That old destroyer, the Serpent (Satan according to Revelation 20:2), came to steal, and to kill, and to destroy Eve's family and their happiness. In the Garden of Eden (in the Old Testament book of Genesis), there was only one sin that Adam and Eve could commit, which was to eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. We don't know what type of fruit it was. Tradition claims that it was an apple (hence, a human's “Adam's Apple” lump in our throat). Since Adam sewed fig leaves together, some Bible students think the fruit may have been a fig. However, we read in Genesis 2:9a, “And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; So there were present in the Garden of Eden “every tree” that was edible.

Please notice that it was God Himself who created the forbidden Tree of Knowledge and its fruit. That is very interesting! The Lord Himself provided the only source of temptation for Adam and Eve, to test them. This teaches us an important Bible truth, that even when we walking in the perfect will of God as a believer, He will still test us. A FAITH MUST BE TESTED!!! Unshakable faith comes from having your faith shaken. Faith is like film it develops in the dark. Amen. Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do.

After God allowed the Devil to strip away everything Job held near and dear, destroying Job's life and happiness, the Lord then gave Satan permission to take away Job's good health. The Devil afflicted Job with boils from the crown of his head to the sole of his foot. Ouch!!! There are several truths which we can glean from the true account of Job:
  1. The faith of every Christian will be tested by God (Hebrews 11:6)
  2. God has placed a protective hedge around every saint (Job 1:10)
  3. Just because bad things happen to us in life, doesn't mean God doesn't care ()
  4. When bad things happen in life, it is often in rapid succession (Job 1:16, 17 and 18 - “While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said...”)
  5. Just because bad things or poverty happen to us as God's children, doesn't in any way mean that we are being judged and afflicted by God because of sin (Job 1:1)
  6. The Devil cannot hurt a child of God in any way without God's permission (Job 1:12)
  7. Satan needs additional permission from God, if he wants to afflict us more (Job 2:6-7)
  8. Satan does have the power to cause loss of wealth, loved ones and health (Job 1:13-19)
  9. Satan can control the weather with God's permission (Job 1:19)
  10. Living for the Lord caused Job's suffering (Job 1:8-9). Don't underestimate God's will.
  11. The Devil is a bum who wanders the earth seeking his next victim (1st Peter 5:8)
  12. Your spouse may lose faith and discourage you during difficult times (Job 2:9-10)
  13. Your friends may discourage and condemn you in difficult times (Job chapters 4-23)
  14. God turned Job's captivity when he prayed for his judgmental jerk friends (Job 42:10)
  15. When all was said and done, God blessed Job with a double portion (Job 42:12)
  16. After all of the hardships of Job, he rightly said: "Blessed be the name of the Lord."
Living for the Lord caused Job's suffering. If Job hadn't been such a godly man, this test likely never would have happened. It was because of Job's impeccable walk with God that God challenged the Devil. Go figure! Truth is stranger than fiction! No one can outsmart God, so don't even try dear reader. Our part in life as God's children is to Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man” (Ecclesiastes 12:13b). If serving God faithfully means that we will suffer for it, do without or even be martyred, then so be it. To lose something in the will of God is to find something better.

Famous martyred missionary to Ecuador, Jim Elliot (1927-1956) once said: “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep, to gain that which he cannot lose.” What a great truth!!! Jim Elliot is speaking about Christian service, not salvation.

It is because Job lived faithfully for the Lord that everything went bad in his life, and his wife lost her faith and suggested for Job to curse God and die. It was because Job did the right thing, that all his close friends condemned him in their lack of understanding, so that Job said in Job 16:2, “I have heard many such things: miserable comforters are ye all.” Read what poor afflicted Job said in Job 19:19, “All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me. This is all befalling Job because HE DID THE RIGHT THING!!! I know how Job felt. I was the only one on Guam, at the Harvest Baptist Church, who did the right thing. I TOLD THE TRUTH, as a true friend does.

I TOLD THE TRUTH to Harvest's rotten Bob Jones University alumni pastors (i.e., Marty Herron, Joe Hansen, Jared Baldwin, Gary Walton), for which they wickedly threw me under the bus in their hatred and resentment, feeding me to the hungry lions as Daniel. Those ungodly pastors at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, chose the love of money and the acceptance of their ministry peers at BJU (the praise of men versus the praise of God - John 12:42-43); rather than to suffer reproach for THE TRUTH (2nd Timothy 3:12), and be put outside the gate with me and Jesus (Galatians 4:16). The fastest way to get kicked out of a church and be recommended for therapy is to just TELL THE TRUTH!!! John8:40, “But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.”

Just as the Jews killed the prophets that God sent to help them, throwing them under the bus; likewise did the wicked pastors of the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam throw me under the buss. They are arrogant and stiff-necked, thinking they are correct and I am wrong.

If these men of God are right, then so I am:
  • Dear reader, if Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) was right ('The Real Battle,' MP3 sermon) that the only inspired Words of God are contained in the King James Bible, than I am right too. All of the modern Bible revisions are corrupt!
  • If Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) was right that Lordship Salvation is a perversion of the Gospel, than so am I right. BJU, Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, Pacific Garden Mission's UNSHACKLED radio program, Marty Herron, Faith Baptist Bible College And Theological Seminary (Ankeny, Iowa), and John MacArthur are all guilty of preaching another gospel. God's curse is upon them all (Galatians 1:6-9).
  • If Pastor Hank Lindstrom (1940-2008) was right that a believer can live like the Devil, and still be 100% assured of eternal security, than I am right too. 'How Permanent Is Your Salvation' (MP3 sermon).
  • If Michael P. Bowen is right that Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, Beth Moore, Charles Stanley, Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, John Hagee and Pat Robertson are all damnable false prophets, than I am right too. See, 'I Never Knew You' (free .PDF book).
  • If Pilgrim's Progress book author John Bunyan (1628-1688) was right that combining sanctification with justification corrupts the Word of God and places stumbling blocks before the people, then I am right in my preaching against Lordship Salvation.
  • If Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold is right in his preaching against infidel John MacArthur, than so also am I right in my faithful Bible preaching.
  • Most of all, if the inspired King James Bible is right, than so am I right in my preaching from it's treasure trove of truths (Romans 3:4).
RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!!

I just heard this great quote from Pastor Yankee Arnold...
“Pastors should not have a different Gospel. It should be the same Gospel. Now, we may present it different ways, but the Gospel should still be the Gospel. And preachers and evangelists and whoever—the message still has to be the same, if it is the Gospel. And if it is by grace, then it has to be FREE, and it must be FOREVER. If it's not free, it's not the Gospel; and if it's not forever, it's not the Gospel; because that's what makes it such a good thing. In other words, we are supposed to speak with words that are easy to be understood.” —Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold, “Is God Confused?

Job said: BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD!!! That should also be our attitude no matter what happens in life. Just settle it in your mind friend, that GOD IS ALWAYS GOOD!!! God is more than amazing! God is so good! I refuse to place my God on trial every time things go wrong in my life. We are so spoiled rotten in America. Check this video out, about a primitive tribe (the Sentinelese), who have never seen the modern world...

What's Hidden on the Forbidden North Sentinel Island?

That is amazing!!! I thank and praise God for His bountiful blessings. Throughout history wicked people have rejected, shunned, ostracized, persecuted and even murdered God's prophets:
Luke 11:50-51, “That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.”
Luke 13:34, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!
I know how they felt, being hated and shunned for TELLING THE TRUTH. I have been kicked out of multiple churches because I TOLD THE TRUTH. Sadly, Campus Church at Pensacola Christian Church is one of them. I rebuked their pastors for wickedly bidding Godspeed to the corrupt Bob Jones University camp, which includes the apostate Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. Like the Apostle Paul, they have counted me as their enemy for TELLING THE TRUTH (Galatians 4:16).

In today's Laodicean LUKEWARM churches, the Devil has crept his damnable doctrines into them. The Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation has crept into most Baptist churches, turning them into religious cults. No one is saved who thinks that eternal life is not free, that you must turn away from your sinful lifestyle to obtain it from God. No one is saved who thinks that God's free gift of eternal life can be lost, given back or forfeited by sinful behavior.

I attended a revival last year in Pensacola, at a local church. The church had invited a Bluegrass music group from Texas. Their music was beautiful. But on the last day of the revival, the woman who plays the double bass guitar gave her testimony. She said for several years she had thought she was saved, but then came to realize eventually that she had never turned away from her sinning. She said that now she is saved, because she has turned away from her sinful ways. I wanted to stand up and rebuke her in front of over 100 people, then walk out the door and never come back! Sadly, the church pastor never corrected her. The church pastor has blood on his hands for sanctioning damnable heresy!

Dear reader, you absolutely DON'T have to turn away from your sinful behavior to get to Heaven. Of course God wants (and even commands) all of His redeemed children to depart from iniquity; but that doesn't get you to Heaven!!! 2nd Timothy 2:19, “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” Kindly said, that woman is not merely confused, she is also still unsaved. Nobody can be saved, until that guilty lost sinner comes to the realization that there is NOTHING he or she can do to get to Heaven, except to CEASE from their own works and wholly REST in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 4:10-11). Jesus died on a cross to pay for our debt of sin. He was buried. Three days later Christ resurrected from the dead. This is the Gospel (1st Corinthians 15:1-4).

May we all have the excellent spirit of Job, who after losing everything said: “Blessed be the name of the Lord!”

Many Pastors Are Deceived But Think All Is Okay

Revelation 3:15-18, “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. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

Our text from Revelation 3:15-18 is a well known Scripture passage about the lukewarm Laodicean church. This was a deceived church! This is Jesus Himself speaking to the Apostle John, who was exiled on the isle of Patmos at the time of this writing in AD 96. Revelation 1:18, “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” That verse is speaking about Jesus! Jesus told John that the Laodicean church claimed to be prospering, to be blessed of God so that they had need of nothing; when in reality they were wretched, naked and blind the Bible says. Jesus said He spews them out of His mouth, “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:” (Revelation 3:17).

Jesus is talking about Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College (PCC). The PCC camp refuse to get their hands dirty for God (2nd Timothy 3:12). PCC refuses to fight the good fight of faith (1st Timothy 6:12). PCC refuses to earnestly contend for the faith (Jude 1:3). They meet three times a week at Campus Church, singing a bunch of religious songs, playing church as if it were a game, going through all the external motions. PCC is a religious cult, where the system always comes first and individual people don't matter.

When I attended Campus Church in 2021 for a few months, I didn't feel any Holy Spirit power. There was no soulwinning (they won't even use the term “soulwinning”). The weakly preaching from the church pulpit is formal, dry, dead and lacks passion. There was no love, compassion or genuine concern for me as a hurting human being. I poured out my heart to Pastor Jeff Redlin, as sincerely as any man could; but he harshly responded with cold-hearted callousness, woeful indifference, and he even rebuked me for daring to say that I hoped to remarry after being alone for the past 15 years (my former wife divorced me in 2006).

Kindly said, Pastor Jeff Redlin is an incompetent minister, the academic type, a rich yuppie (he gets paid an outrageous 6-digit salary as senior pastor). Jeff Redlin is not qualified in my humble opinion to be in the clergy. Yet he is influencing thousands of PCC students in a captive audience (that he didn't build). When I attended Campus Church, I saw dozens of young people playing with their mobile phones and gadgets during the church service, instead of listening to Pastor Redlin's dry, boring and spiritually lifeless sermonettes.

Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College

I have been watching a very interesting series of documentaries on YouTube called: 'Mayday,' about plane crashes and the revealing investigations that follow. In the preceding video, the pilot takes off from the wrong runway, killing half of the passengers on the plane. The plane was headed from Taiwan to Los Angeles, fueled to the max with about 100,000 gallons of fuel. So when the plane crashed into some ground equipment on the wrong runway, the plane burst into flames. In the documentary, the co-pilot told the pilot that their glideslope (technology to help the pilot know where the runway is) meter was showing wrong. Yet the pilot ignored that warning. Why? In human psychology it is called “Confirmation Bias” (or “Myside Bias) ...
What is 'Confirmation Bias' Psychology?
Before you can understand what confirmation bias psychology is, you have to know what the word bias means. The Oxford Dictionary defines bias as prejudice or inclination against or in favor of one person, a group, an idea, or a subject. For example, you may find that you have a bias against younger people when hiring for a job opening.

Bias is in all of us, whether we are conscious of it or not. Nobody can be completely unbiased because we all have feelings or opinions driving our biases. Unconscious bias is an instant feeling or thought you have about things, people, and subjects that you cannot control. Confirmation bias (also known as myside bias) is a type of cognitive bias that backs up your personal beliefs or feelings about things. It is the mind's way of ignoring everything that does not support our ideas or views.

Confirmation Bias In Psychology

In social psychology, confirmation bias (or myside bias) is defined as an inability to see your circumstances objectively. While having a natural tendency to be unconsciously biased is normal, those who decide to believe something because they want it to be true are using myside bias.

According to the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, confirmation bias posits that people tend to seek information and evidence that supports their existing beliefs.

This is like wishful thinking times 100 as the individual only sees things that they want to see, as they will search for information that supports their existing beliefs while disconfirming evidence that goes against their beliefs or desires.

Confirmation bias works as an effective way for individuals to process information and minimize cognitive dissonance that occurs with conflicting views and ideas.

SOURCE: What Is Confirmation Bias Psychology?

And that is exactly why Pastors' Jeff Redlin and Timothy Zacharias of PCC's Campus Church refused to listened to THE TRUTH, when I gave it to them in 2021. Pastor Redlin told me in an email that the pastors of Campus Church as a group found fault with my website ministry. They all shamefully and wrongly accused me of “finding weaknesses in preachers,” when in reality I am doing what they should be doing—“that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 1:3). The Bible says to “REBUKE THEM SHARPLY” who corrupt the simplicity of the Gospel (Titus 1:9-14).

I do not find weakness in preachers; but rather, I preach against the WICKEDNESS in pastors! Preaching the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation is not a weakness, it is wickedness according to Galatians 1:6-9! Using, selling and promoting Satan's corruptible seed (i.e., the modern perverted Bible revisions) is not a weakness, it is wickedness according to Proverbs 30:5-6! Bidding Godspeed to Pastor John MacArthur is not a weakness in pastors, it is wickedness according to 2nd John 1:11.

I was the only one who was doing the right thing at PCC (when I attended there in 2021), but they are evildoers according to 2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” Pastor Jeff Redlin might as well preach the Devil's fraud of Lordship Salvation, because by sinfully bidding Godspeed to the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, he is a partaker of their evil deeds. Harvest Baptist Church has sinfully tried to hide their doctrinal beliefs, by removing their Statement of Faith from their church's website; but the fact that Harvest still wholeheartedly promotes Bob Jones University (BJU), and Dr. Steve Pettit's (BJU president since 2014) Calvinist preaching indicts them. The sad truth is that making money is the most important thing to BJU, PCC and Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. So they all ignore what each other preaches, looking the other way, pretending like it is not their business what each other does and teaches. But that is apostasy!!! RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!! Look what evil Steve Pettit preaches at BJU to thousands of staff and students.

The churches of Galatia counted the Apostle Paul (who started those churches years earlier), as their “enemy” for telling “THE TRUTH” (Galatians 4:15-17). I am not the bad guy here, I am the HERO according to God's Word. I am trying to rescue the perishing, by exposing all the wolves in sheep's clothing (e.g., Marty Herron, John MacArthur, Gary Walton, Chuck Phelps, Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron, Steve Pettit, Sam Horn, John Hagee, Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, John Piper, Chip Ingram, William Lane Craig, J.D. Greear, Adrian Rogers, Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, Charles Stanley, Beth Moore, Pat Robertson, the Catholic Pope, Warren Jeffs, Ellen G. White, Doug Batchelor, et cetera).

In “Confirmation Bias” (or “Myside Bias”), someone  has already made up their mind about someone or something, so that they put up a psychological defense in their mind, as you are trying to show them THE TRUTH in reality. That is what happened to the lukewarm church at Laodicea. In Revelation 3:17, “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:” What a disturbing paradox! This is just like so many churches today, who have tons of money and lots of members, thinking that God is blessing them greatly; but in reality they are spiritually naked, wretched and blind to their woeful horrible condition!!! That is Pensacola Christian College and their Campus Church!

That is NOT the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. It is much worse concerning Harvest and their cult headquarters at Bob Jones University (BJU), because they are NOT saved at all. This is because the BJU camp trust in a counterfeit plan of salvation (aka, Lordship Salvation - Matthew 7:21-23). They have never been born-again into God's Kingdom, which is by faith alone in Jesus as the Christ, the only begotten Son of God; who died on the cross for our sins, was buried, and resurrected three days later (John 6:40; 1st Corinthians 15:1-4).

In social psychology, confirmation bias (or myside bias) is defined as an inability to see your circumstances objectively (i.e., you are under the mental power of a delusion). While having a natural tendency to be unconsciously biased is normal, those who decide to believe something because they want it to be true are using myside bias. That is why the 747 pilot in Taiwan took off on the wrong runway with 179 passengers and killed 83 of them!!! Everyone who was sitting in the middle of the plane, over the wing where all the fuel is stored, were burned alive.

The co-pilot warned the captain that something was not right (the glideslope was showing the plane was not where it was supposed to be), but the captain had Confirmation Bias (i.e., Myside Bias). That is, he was so sure in his OWN MIND that the plane was going down the correct runway, that he ignored contrary information from the co-pilot. Likewise, even though I have been diligently warning the Bob Jones University camp since 2014, that they are trusting in a wrong plan of salvation, they have totally ignored me due to their own Confirmation Bias. They are so sure that they are right, that nothing I say from the Bible has been taken seriously by them. The BJU crowd are taxing down the wrong runway, trusting in a counterfeit gospel that cannot produce the new birth, headed for imminent fiery destruction in Hell!!! Sadly, nobody is listening.

I was thinking about the Laodicean church in Revelation 3:15-18 today, and how it so perfectly illustrates Confirmation Bias. The lukewarm Campus Church at PCC, their college and alumni, all emphasis culture over contending for the faith. They dress fancy at PCC. They sing their proper music in church. They meet in extravagant multi-million dollar buildings. They have a snobby type of elite leadership in the PCC camp. They have hundreds of millions of dollars in real estate assets. They take in tens of millions of dollars. They are blinded by their worldly success. They fail to see that they are spiritually naked, wretched and blind to their woeful condition.

The Pensacola Christian College (PCC) camp are lukewarm, which Jesus said He vomits out of His mouth. They have no zeal to contend against false doctrine. They don't hate every false way. They just don't care about right doctrine. What they do care about is making more money! They do care about protecting the cult at all costs. Sadly, they don't care about individual people, like me. I literally pleaded to come back to Campus Church in 2022, but PCC leaders and the pastors of Campus Church all cruelly refused. That is hatred.

All across America PCC graduates are playing church, but they refuse to fight the good fight of faith. The Devil is in the Bible-publishing business! Since 1881, when Anglican infidel ministers Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort produced their corrupt Greek translation of the New Testament, literally HUNDREDS of Bible revisions have been published. HUNDREDS!!! Folks, God only authored ONE BOOK!!! Where is PCC in the battle over the Word of God? They are nowhere to be found. PCC calls truth-tellers like me, soldiers for Christ who actually fight the good fight of faith, “radical.” I may be radical preacher, but Pastor Jeff Redlin is a deadbeat!

The Laodicean church spoke highly of themselves, just like the PCC camp does, errantly thinking that they were prospering and in need of nothing (just like Campus Church). But Jesus Himself said that in reality they were wretched, naked and blind. THAT IS CAMPUS CHURCH AND PCC!

I heard a great sermon yesterday by Pastor Curtis Hutson, in which he makes this statement:
“Evangelicalism and fundamentalism is not the same! When you rename it and call it: 'Evangelical Fundamentalism,' leave me out of it, you've changed it then. The thing that concerns me now, is so many young preacher boys who go off to college and don't even have a good class on Contemporary Theology. Because some preachers get up and push neo-evangelicalism and fundamentalism in the same expression, and try to make it one and the same, because they don't understand it. A lot of young preachers think it is the same. THERE'S A BIG, BIG, DIFFERENCE! Old evangelicalism based on the theology of fundamentalism was supplanted by neo-evangelicalism; based on the theology of infiltration rather than separation as the Bible clearly declared we ought to do.” —Pastor Curtis Hutson, “Things That Are Different Are Not The Same
Dr. Hutson is so right. PCC shamefully bids Godspeed to the Calvinist Bob Jones University (BJU) camp. Look at this demonic garbage that Dr. Steve Pettit (president of BJU since 2014) is preaching.

That is NOT the free grace Gospel. The shameful Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is in bed with BJU, because they are their graduates. It is tragic and apostasy that the PCC camp refuses to take a Biblical stand against the BJU camp and expose them, as I am faithfully doing. Pastor Redlin shamefully falsely accused me in July of 2021 of "finding weaknesses in preachers," when I reality (as Jesus showed John in Revelation 3:15-18), I am HOT for God, but PCC is LUKEWARM, and Harvest Baptist Church on Guam and BJU aren't even COLD, they aren't born-again believers at all!!! They are in the Lordship Salvation cult of Dr. John MacArthur, their hero whom they all idolize. SHAME on PCC leadership! SHAME on Campus Church's spoiled and indifferent pastors!

Y'all just keep playing church three times a week, and singing your insincere songs, puffed up in your Laodicean pride and blindness, while the BJU crowd continue to damn souls to Hell with your blessing. God is on my side (Romans 3:4). The pastors of Campus Church don't care about RIGHT DOCTRINE or REBUKING FALSE PROPHETS, but I DO CARE, and GOD CARES. I seem to be the only one who cares about doing the right thing regarding PCC. Why doesn't PCC contend for the Christian faith? Why do you all commit spiritual adultery with the accursed BJU camp and their false gospel and false bibles (Galatians 1:6-9)?
