1st Thessalonians 4:14 Gives Us God's Simple Plan Of Salvation

1st Thessalonians, “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.”

I love 1st Thessalonians 4:14. What an awesome Bible verse! Satan has succeeded in changing our Bible versions in most churches today. The Devil has also succeeded in changing our moral standards of clothing in most Bible colleges and churches, which were once considered the most conservative Christian institutions in the United States. It is sad to see everything turning from good to bad in America. Likewise, Satan has crept a false plan of salvation into many of our Independent co-called “Fundamental” Baptist churches, adopting a Roman Catholic understanding of repentance instead of what the Bible teaches. They are only fundamental in name, but not in their stand, lifestyle or convictions.

I love 1st Thessalonians 4:14 because it tells us the plain and simple plan of salvation, “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.” Amen! If we believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and resurrected from the grave three days later, we are saved. This is what the Bible teaches. This is a very different plan of salvation than the unbiblical requirement for a person to cease from sinful bad habits, forsake the world, make a commitment, and become a follower of Jesus Christ to be saved. Whether doing good works or stopping bad works, both are still dead works (Hebrews 6:1). Works have no part in salvation (Ephesians 2:8-9). To teach that a person must commit to turning away from sin to be saved is to teach that we are saved by partial faith in Christ plus human effort, which is heresy.

The Bible defines the “Gospel” for us in 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.” This is the good news, which is what the word gospel means. We are saved by believing the good news that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God Who came into the world to die in our place on the cross. Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.

Who will Jesus bring with Him at the Rapture? 1st Thessalonians 4:14, “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.” This Scripture also refutes the false teaching of Soul Sleep that is foolishly taught by Seventh Day Adventists and Jehovah's Witnesses. The Bible says that God is going to bring with Him the saints, who were saved by believing that Jesus died and rose again from the dead.

The dead in Christ will be raised first (1st Thessalonians 4:16-17), a reunion of our new, changed, resurrected, glorified, physical body, fashioned like unto the Lord's perfect new body (Philippians 3:21). Then the saints who are alive and remain on earth shall be “CAUGHT UP,” in the twinkling of an eye (1st Thessalonians 4:17b), to meet the Lord in the air (1st Corinthians 15:52; 1st Thessalonians 4:17). All the saints shall be CAUGHT UP to be with the Lord in the clouds. Every saint will receive a glorified new body, incorruptible. What a day that will be!!! This Biblical doctrine is often called “THE RAPTURE,” which although it is not a word found in the Bible, the teaching certainly agrees with the Scriptures.

Here is the full passage of Scripture:
1st Thessalonians 4:13-18, “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”
1st Thessalonians 4:17 plainly teaches that we will be “CAUGHT UP” to be with the Lord in the air when He returns. Clearly, this is a very different event than the Revelation (Second Coming) of Jesus Christ to the earth, when He will be seen by all humanity. The Revelation comes 7-years AFTER the Rapture. The Rapture Compared To The Revelation | Do Babies Go At The Rapture? (Dr. Max D. Younce). The Bible teaches a pretribulation Rapture, that is, the saints are caught up before the 7-year tribulation period.

Let us be vigilant and always ready to contend for the Christian faith (Jude 1:3), by exposing any false plan of salvation that adds to the simple truth that we are saved by believing the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Christ died for our sins on the cross. He was buried. Three days later He bodily rose from the dead for our justification. If you acknowledge that you are a guilty sinner in God's eyes and believe that Christ died for your sins, and that He raised up from the dead, then you are saved immediately, irrevocably and eternally secure in the promise of God to save them that believe (John 3:16; Romans 1:16; Titus 1:2).

1st Thessalonians, “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.”

We Ought To Love Everybody, As God Loves Us

Romans 5:1-11, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.”

I dearly love this tremendous passage of Scripture. In these eleven beautiful Bible verses we find a Smorgasbord (i.e., a Swedish word which means an assortment of foods served as a buffet) of truths. I love a Smorgasbord!!!

#1 - We Are Justified By Faith

The first great truth I see in this passage is in verse one: “Therefore being justified by faith...” It frustrates me that over 90% of pastors, Bible colleges and churches today have been corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. Instead of preaching the truth from the Bible that lost sinners are justified by faith alone, they have been deceived by the Devil to add turning away from your sinful ways to get to Heaven. Nowhere in the inspired Word of God are we taught to “repent of our your sins or turn away from your sins to be saved. These phrases are NOT found in the inspired King James Bible. Ungodly men added those unbiblical requirements, and in so doing have perverted the Gospel. We are justified by faith alone.

#2 - We Live The Christian Life By Faith

The second great truth that I see is in verse one through five...
Romans 5:1-5, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
If you are saved, you were saved by God's grace through faith. That very SAME grace is available to help you live your life. As seen in the preceding passage from Romans chapter five, the Apostle Paul writes, “Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also... Boy, I love that! The same grace that saved us is still available to every believer BY FAITH, to help us stand, rejoice in hope, glory in tribulations, et cetera. That is why Paul and Silas could sing unto the Lord while locked in shackles and chains in prison in Rome.

A professed Christian man recently contacted me, to tell me how down, discouraged and frustrated he is with life. He mentioned praying to God, but never receiving any answers. He said that he doesn't want to play a useless religious game anymore, where He cries out to a God who never answers. I know how he feels. I think most people do, if we are honest about it. But dear friend, I can tell you with Biblical confidence that living the Christian life is strictly a matter of HAVING FAITH IN GOD. In Mark 11:22b Jesus exclaimed: Have faith in God.
  • When you feel like God has abandoned you dear reader, Have faith in God.
  • When you feel discouraged, Have faith in God.
  • When your heart is broken, Have faith in God.
  • When you lose your job and don't know what to do, Have faith in God.
  • When a loved one is sick and then dies, Have faith in God.
  • When you are lonely and have no one to hug, Have faith in God.
  • When you are mistreated by bad uncompassionate pastors, Have faith in God.
  • When you are kicked out of church for standing for the truth, Have faith in God.
  • When your spouse unexpectedly cruelly divorces you, Have faith in God.
  • When everything is going fine in life, Have faith in God.
Always have faith in God dear friend. Any idiot can handle a crisis, it's this mundane day to day living that gets us down. That is where true character is formed and revealed over time, by those who just stay by the stuff. The true heroes are the people who fulfill their duties, day in and day out for years, being faithful to do what they are supposed to do, just like our great God does. 1st Corinthians 1:9, “God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.”

#3 - Suffering Teaches Us To Walk By Faith, Not By Sight

When life is miserable and nothing seems to be going our way, our faith is tested. We have no choice but to be patient, which through years of experience teaches us to wait on God. We learn through tribulation and patience in our sufferings, that the Christian life is lived BY FAITH, NOT BY SIGHT (2nd Corinthians 5:7). The most important thing is to never lose faith in God. The Bibles says that our strength to keep going and not quit, is KNOWING the truth that Jesus has raised up from the dead, and we will too...
2nd Corinthians 4:14, “Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.”
The same omnipotent (all-powerful) God who raised up Jesus from the dead the third day, also raises up the believer—not only by giving us unspeakable joy, love, hope and peace in this sorrowful lifetime, but God will also resurrect our bodies at the Rapture, transforming mortality into immortality. For those believers who are still alive, they will be changed in the twinkling of an eye (in a fraction of a second) into the likeness of Christ's glorified resurrected body (Philippians 3:21). What a day that will be! ...
Romans 5:3b-5, “knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
By faith we can endure and rejoice in our tribulations and sorrows. When I hear a saint bellyaching about their problems and doubting God, I understand that their faith is weak. That doesn't make them a bad person, it just means that they haven't been walking with God. Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” At the lowest points in my life, I decided to focus more on my website ministry. I labored more intensely. I spent more time in prayer, Bible study and helping counsel down and out people, feeding Jesus' sheep. That increase in my faith saw me through the tough times!

I was just as sad, miserable, frustrated and lonely in my daily life; but I had peace like a river in my soul, unshakable faith, and the love of God shed abroad in my heart toward everyone. Unshakable faith comes from having your faith shaken. Faith is like film, it develops in the dark. Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do. Everything that we do in the Christian life is by faith. I often work until I cannot keep my eyes open, bobbing my head up and down in my office chair, falling asleep at my laptop computer. God sees my sacrifice of love for Him. I labor by faith, believing that my Lord will one day in eternity reward my labors (1st Corinthians 3:8).

By faith Noah moved with fear to build an ark, which took him 120 years. I have heard Ken Ham and others allege that Noah didn't take 120 years to build the ark, but the Bible calls ken Ham and those other speculators, liars! 1st Peter 3:20, “Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.” God waited 120 years for Noah to prepare the ark. When Noah was done, God sent the flood to destroy all humanity and life upon the land.

#4 - Christ Died For The Ungodly, And We Should Love Everyone

I love this Scripture passage! The Bible says that some people who sacrifice their life to save a righteous man. The Bible says that perhaps even a few people who sacrifice their life to die for a good man. But who would give their life to save a convicted criminal, to die in the place of an ungodly man? No one! Ah, but Jesus did. Christ died for the ungodly. He died for even you and me friend, both guilty sinners. What uncommon love! ...
Romans 5:6-11, “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.”
As humans, we have all found ourselves thinking silently in our soul, “She doesn't deserve to be loved” or “He doesn't deserve my prayers.” We all have enemies. What saith the Scripture? Matthew 5:44, “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Jesus tells us to pray for our enemies who despitefully use and persecute us. That is Christianity 101 for advanced saints who genuinely want to please God. Immature believers won't obey this command from God. The Lord wants us to love people who hurt us. God wants us to be better than the average bear. He wants us to be just like His only begotten Son, Jesus.

Many people don't deserve our love, help, prayers or kindness; but neither do we deserve the unconditional love of God that sent Jesus to be brutally beaten and spit upon by Roman soldiers, as they mocked and ridiculed Him, falsely accused by the Pharisees, and ultimately condemned and crucified to death on a cross as an innocent man. Jesus truly didn't deserve to suffer and die, but He did it to pay for our sins, because God loves us. Jesus is almighty God!!!

Dear reader, I encourage you to love, forgive and do good to all mankind. If someone has hurt you, let the offense go into God's hands for judgment, so you can forgive them and move forward with your own life. Don't allow bitterness and hatred to consume you. I have been hurt, betrayed, defrauded and abused by countless wicked people in my life (including a half down rotten pastors), but I let the snakes go long ago, by faith entrusting God to keep His promise to avenge me of their wickedness (Romans 12:19-21; 1st Thessalonians 4:6).

Our great Savior died for the ungodly, which includes you and me and all humanity. We are all ungodly (Romans 3:10, 23). If Christ was willing to die on a cross to redeem a guilty sinner like me, then I surely am going to forgive everyone, even before they ask for forgiveness, or if they never ask for any forgiveness. God has forgiven me. And let me say, you don't need to ask God to forgive your sins, because Jesus has already paid for everyone's sins on the cross. Forgiveness of sins is a free gift. Eternal life is a free gift. A gift simply needs to be accepted. We accept God's free gift of forgiveness of sins by faith.

Simply take God at His Word as recorded in the Holy Bible. Put your faith (trust, confidence) in what Christ did for you. Anyone who comes to God as a needy sinner, accepting Christ's sacrifice on the cross as payment for your sins, believing that Jesus was buried, but then bodily resurrected three days later, is saved. It is as simple as that to get to Heaven. Just believe that Jesus did it all for you. John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

People just want to be loved. They may not deserve it, but neither do we. Humans can be so rotten to each other, committing unimaginable evils. But Christ was willing to die for that person, and for you and for me. We are ALL guilty sinners. Psalms 106:6, “We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.” Always remember: “There but for the grace of God go I.” You either love everyone, or else you love no one. Jesus died for everyone because God loves everyone, even the vilest sinner on earth. So what right do we have not to love everyone? But for the grace of God, we might be in that person's shoes and difficult situation. Let God love everybody through you, with the divine fruit of the blessed indwelling Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-25). Jesus is precious!!!

Beware Of Liquid Devil

Proverbs 20:1, “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.”

The following three photos were taken by my father in the 1970's. My Dad was a Skid Row preacher in downtown Chicago, who dedicated his ministry to helping alcoholics and drug addicts on the streets, the forgotten of our society. ...

Sadly, it was reported in the news today on February 1st, 2023 that a man who got drunk, murdered his fiancée and her baby in the womb, when his car crashed. The man has been officially charged with two counts of murder. Here is the actual wreckage. The automobile hit a street pole and was cut into three parts...

The following actual photo is of Denise Wagoner (before and after), who got drunk and crashed...

The Sad Story Of Denise Wagoner, "Just Call Me Crash"

God knows that I don't condemn anyone for consuming alcoholic beverages. I take a cup of Nyquil to help me sleep sometimes, which Pastor Jerry Falwell called “Baptist wine.” If you are using Nyquil for medicinal purposes, as I do, then I see nothing wrong in drinking it. The state of Florida took away my 10 mg of prescription Ambien, which I had taken for over 10 years. I have difficulty sleeping. Staying active during the day doesn't help. I also sometimes take over-the-counter sleep aid medications from CVS or Walgreens.

Thankfully, by God's grace, I have never drank one drop of booze. I refuse to drink beer. I hate alcoholic beverages. Recreational drinking can be deadly. I've seen too many horrible things happen to people who drink booze. The best wisdom I've ever heard regarding alcohol, is that you cannot take the second drink if you don't take the first. That man in the earlier article I shared with you, is facing two charges of murder. The state of New York is charging him with manslaughter, but it ought to be second degree murder. Regardless, if convicted of two counts of manslaughter, the man faces 50 years in prison!!! Was it worth it?

According to the law offices of Attorney's Herrling and Clark in Wisconsin...
Any amount of alcohol in a person’s system can affect their ability to control a motor vehicle and avoid collisions with other vehicles, motorcycles, bicyclists, pedestrians, or obstacles. The best way to prevent drunk driving accidents is to never get behind the wheel after even one drink of alcohol.” [emphasis added] —SOURCE
Better yet, don't drink booze at all. Search the internet and you will learn that in Russia alcoholism is a massive problem. I read years ago that in Russia, one in every seven men die because of their fondness of Vodka. That is so sad. This evil trend has led to a shortage of husbands for Russian women. I like what Evangelist John R. Rice (1895-1980) calls alcohol: “LIQUID DEVIL.” It sure is too! From the earliest historical records of human civilization, alcohol has been a menace to individuals, families and society.

According to statistics gathered by the NHTSA (National Highway And Transportation and Safety Administration)...
“Every day, about 32 people in the United States die in drunk-driving crashes—that's one person every 45 minutes. In 2020, 11,654 people died in alcohol-impaired driving traffic deaths—a 14% increase from 2019. These deaths were all preventable.” —SOURCE
When will humanity ever learn from our sins, failures, bad decisions and foolishness? The answer is that each generation must rediscover THE TRUTH for ourselves. Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? We all have to make our own individual choices in life. By God's grace, I have chosen all my life to abstain from alcohol beverages (e.g., beer, Vodka, wine, Brandy, et cetera). There are so many great beverage choices without consuming alcohol for recreation.

By very consistency consumer alcohol is a schedule one drug. That is, alcohol can become addictive, but has no medical purpose. Although some fools will argue, the statistics speak for themselves, don't they. Every year in the United States, thousands upon thousands of people become victims of alcoholic substance abuse. The inspired Holy Bible speaks plainly on this matter of booze. Proverbs 20:1, “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.” ...

God's Curse Is Upon Anyone Who Removes Words From The Inspired Holy Bible

Revelation 22:18-19, “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

It is said by many heretics, that the modern Bible revisions are easier to read in a more “modern” English. Is that really so? Or is it something very different from the trustworthy inspired authorized King James Bible? Rather than getting into a long and complicated argument about it, allow me to just show you a simple, side-by-side comparison of 300 Bible verses from the King James Bible, with their counterpart from the corrupt modern versions of the Bible.

What the following comparisons will show you, is that the ungodly people who created the modern corrupt Bible revisions are in direct violation of our text passage from Revelation 22:18-19. So with that, ladies and gentlemen, let’s compare the King James Bible with these modern counterfeit versions, side-by-side, and you be the judge...

Deuteronomy 4:2, “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.”

 Proverbs 30:5-6, “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.”
All of these accursed pastors today who are going around telling everyone to “turn away from your sinful ways” to get to Heaven are LIARS! They are ungodly false prophets who add man's words to God's Words, perverting the Scriptures. I am talking about ungodly false teachers on salvation; such as, Sam Gipp, Jeff Redlin, Timothy Zacharias, Sam Adams, Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, Beth Moore, John Hagee, Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, Ken Ham and his Answers-In-Genesis cult, Bob Jones University, Steve Pettit, John MacArthur, Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron, William Lane Craig, Jack Chick, Keith Gomez, Marty Herron, Dan Corner, Joyce Meyer, Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, Joe Hensen, Jared Baldwin, Gary Walton, Todd Friel, Jimmy Swaggart, Charles Stanley, Adrian Rogers, Pacific Garden Mission and UNSHACKLED radio, et cetera. These wicked imposters ALL pervert the Gospel, complicating the simplicity that is in Christ, adding or subtracting from the Gospel.

Look People In The Eye When You Shake Their Hand

1st Peter 2:17, “Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.

All my life I have been frustrated when I go to shake people's hands, and they look off to the wall, or down to the ground. It is rude. At first years ago, I thought they were showing me disrespect, and in a few situations I still think that was their bad intention. However, I sincerely think that 90% of the time when people don't look me in the eye, when they shake my hand, that it is simply because they are insecure about themselves. I have seen even big grown men look away when I shook their hand. It just shows that we all have immaturities in us.

I am writing this blog to teach you dear reader, whoever you may be, to always look a person directly in their eye when you shake their hand. If you cannot look someone in the eye, because you have a grudge against them. then you should be adult enough to refuse to shake their hand. I would rather tell someone directly that I refuse to shake their hand, then to be a lying phony and go through the motion of shaking their hand, while looking off at the wall. To do so is to play games with people's minds, which I detest and won't do to anyone. It is wrong to play such games with people's minds. If you don't like someone, then don't shake their hand. If you do shake their hand, be an adult to look them in the eye, which shows respect.

When I attended the shameful Harvest Baptist Church on Guam for a year in 2013-2014, I was called into the church's office. Pastors' Marty Herron and Joe Hensen were present. Pastor Joe rebuked me for sharing sermons with other people that exposed the Devil's modern corrupt Bible revisions. He insanely accused me of “causing confusion and divisiveness in the church. Joe Hensen admitted to me that the church has at least two dozen different Bible versions circulating in the pews on any given Sunday. How can they horribly accuse me of confusing their congregation, when they already sanction and promote the use of dozens of different Bible versions? That is insanity! They are already a house confused, by their own foolish incompetence.

I rebuked Pastor Hensen back, for over an hour, explaining how Satan was using them to confuse people and send them to Hell by preaching Lordship Salvation, which is another gospel. When we were finished, Pastor Hensen put out his hand to shake mine. I boldly refused to shake his hand. I instead told him that he and Marty Herron were pulling on the same rope as they Devil, by preaching Lordship Salvation, teaching wrong repentance (aka, the "turn from your sinful ways" garbage to get to Heaven) and by using the Devil's fake Bible revisions.

I kindly told Joe Hensen that I was going home to pray for the pastors of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, that they would get right with God and stop lying to people. I never did shake his hand, but we were both crying tears when I walked out the church door once and for all in November of 2014. I told him that I couldn't shake his hand, because I disrespected him for defending the Devil's corrupt Bible, for preaching a counterfeit plan of salvation, and for teaching a false definition of what it means to "repent" to be saved. I just couldn't bid him Godspeed by shaking his bloody hand. SHAME and WOE unto the theologically incompetent pastors of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam.

And may I say, SHAME on Pensacola Christian College (PCC) for bidding Godspeed to the rotten Bob Jones University (BJU) camp. Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is a cesspool of BJU graduates, mimicking the demonic Calvinist heresy being taught at BJU today.

I just wanted to share my humble opinion about shaking hands with others. You should always look someone in the eye when you shake their hand. With men, I firmly grip their hand to shake; but with women, I gently grip the palm of their hand with my thumb and fingers. So I do shake hands very differently between men and ladies. We need a revival in America of chivalry among men, which is all but non-existent today in our depraved culture.

Also, I always hold a door for women. As a courtesy, I hold doors even for men, which is just being a good neighbour. We need to do a lot better how we treat people as believers. Whenever I go to Home Depot, Walmart or any store, I always grab any empty carts form the parking lot and bring it into the store with me. I always grab one cart, and two if nearby. I'm going that way anyway to the store, so why not be helpful? Sadly, most people selfishly only think about themselves, leaving a mess everywhere they go.

When I lived on Guam, it didn't matter what local park I visited, there was garbage littered all over the ground. People are people are people in this world, no matter where you go. In some nicer suburban areas, you'll find cleaner streets and parks, because people have more money and take better care of what is theirs. All of America's big cities are garbage dumps! I hate big cities. Dr. Jack Hyles is correct, who said that urbanization has destroyed the world. That is, people herding into big cities has ruined society. You won't see homeless people sleeping on the street in smaller well-kept towns and cities, you need to go visit the big cities like Los Angeles, Chicago and New York to find homeless people surviving on the streets for miles and miles of Skid Row. It is shameful that in one of the wealthiest countries in the world, the United States does so little to care for its down and out, the homeless and poor.

If I ever shake your hand, you may look off elsewhere, but I will look you right in the eye. I humbly think that is how everybody ought to shake hands. If you are shy, I encourage you to work at looking at people when you shake their hand. If you disrespect the person, then you should have enough backbone and character not to shake their hand at all, instead of being a big phony and a horrible coward. Shaking someone's hand is a big deal.

I have shaken hands with local pastors here in Pensacola, Florida, who shamefully look off in the distance or at the floor, while I am looking them in the eye. That is very bad for a church pastor to do. They are either immature little boys, or horrible cowards afraid to speak their true feelings. That is not the proper way of Christians who walk with God. I guarantee you that the Lord Jesus Christ would never shake someone's hand, while starring off in the distance. It is important that we show respect for people at all times, as a human being who has been created in God's own image. Every person is someone for whom Jesus Christ was willing to do, and did die, to pay our debt of sin. The way that we treat people matters.

And please never forget dear reader, people just want to be loved.

You Either Love Everybody, Or You Love Nobody

Matthew 26:47-50, And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people. Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast. And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him. And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.

Dear reader, everyone alive or dead on planet earth is your neighbour. In our text passage of Scripture, we read that Jesus called the man who betrayed Him to death, the Apostle Judas: “Friend.” That is amazing! Would you call someone your “Friend, who just conspired with a group of evil liars to falsely accurse you? Wow! In this act of benevolence toward his fellow man, we learn from Christ Himself how we ought to treat those who hurt us.

Carefully notice in the following Bible passage, that Jesus doesn't call these commandments  the “greatest”; but rather, He says that there are no commandments any greater than these two great commandments. All of God's commandments are important! ...
Mark 12:28-33, “And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.”
Interestingly, if we examine the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1-17), we see that the first five deal with man's relationship with God. This fulfills obedience to the first of the great commandments to love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, soul and mind. The last five of the Ten Commandments deal with man's relationship with manThis fulfills obedience to the second of the great commandments to love thy neighbour as thyself.

The Apostle James reiterates the second of these great commandments, to love thy neighbour as thyself:
James 2:8-10, “If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.”
The Apostle Paul made an even stronger statement in Galatians 5:14, “For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Wow! Paul teaches that all of God's law is fulfilled by love. There are approximately 720 individual Old Testament commandments in the law, which are simplified in the Ten Commandments. Evangelist Lester Roloff says that the two greatest commandments to love God and love our neighbour are really just one commandment, which is: TO LOVE.

The Apostle James emphasizes the importance of not being a respecter of persons, which is a grave sin. The homeless person on the street is also your neighbour. The man struggling to survive on the street is as much your neighbor, as is your neighbors living in nice homes. The person whom the pastor doesn't like is as much his neighbor, as likeable church members. The inspired Scriptures plainly teach here that being a respecter of persons is among the worst of sins. If loving one's neighbor as thy self is among the greatest of all God's commandments, than it is one of the worst sins to break. James points out in James 2:10, that breaking even the seemingly least of God's commandments makes one guilty of breaking all of them. To the average religious person being a respecter of persons is no big deal, but IT IS A BIG DEAL TO GOD! How we treat other people matters!!!

The shameful senior pastor since 2018 of Campus Church, Jeff Redlin, at Pensacola Christian College, is a wicked respecter of persons. I had attended Campus Church for several months in 2021. Sadly, Pastor Redlin was abusive toward me, speaking harshly when I kindly mentioned that I hoped to find a wife at Campus Church. He scolded me for coming to church to find a wife, but I had never said that, He did. I simply said that I hoped to find a wife at Campus Church. It was one small statement among hundreds of statements in my lengthy letter to him (which took me 5 hours to compose in July of 2021).

SHAME on Jeff Redlin for being a respecter of persons. If I were the mayor of Pensacola he would have treated me like a king, but he mistreated me, making me feel like garbage. Unfortunately, Redlin was abusive, rude and unkind in his words. He totally ignored my words when I confided in him that I have been suffering from stenosis and radiculopathy in my spinal cord since 1992. He just didn't care. Pastor Redlin totally ignored me when I informed him that I was alone in Pensacola, with no friends or family here. In hindsight, I had cast my pearls before the swine at PCC. I was making my humble appeal to be loved and welcomed at Campus Church to a cold-hearted religious thug. To no surprise, I had also contacted PCC leadership, but they sided 100% with their unloving thug pastor. All I can do is preach against their hatred and phoniness at PCC, but God alone will be their Judge.

Pastor Redlin just doesn't care about people, which is inexcusable for a pastor of any size church. Dear reader, you either love everyone or else you love no one. That is a divine law. You cannot pick and choose who matters and who does not. You cannot choose to love your agreeable neighbor who lives in a nice comfortable house, and then not love the scruffy rundown belligerent vagrant who lives homeless on the streets of your town. If you truly know and walk with God, then everyone is your neighbour.

All Pastor Jeff Redlin cared about was belittling me because I hoped to meet a woman to marry. Jeff Redlin is as wicked as Hell! Sadly, Redlin, like all of PCC leadership, have huge wicked misplaced egos and are ungodly respecters of persons. They are guilty of petty prejudices and bigotry at PCC. I speak that to their utter shame at PCC and Campus Church. The cult system always comes first in the PCC camp, individual people do not matter.

The horrible truth is that the leaders at PCC only care about making more money, which they can only get from luring more students (victims) into their cult. Any closed off religious group that welcomes some, but shuns others, is a deadly cult! As of August 2, 2022 I have been banned in writing by PCC leadership (primarily Jeff Redlin) from ever attending Campus Church again. They do NOT love people at PCC!!! All they love is their paychecks, bragging amongst themselves like Hollywood does. They fall all over themselves at PCC with self praise and self glorification, living in their own little cult society, just like Hollyweird. Please steer clear of the cult at Pensacola Christian College.

The Bible commands Christian men in Titus 1:9-14 to “rebuke them sharply” (verse 13b) who corrupt others with a counterfeit plan of salvation. PCC has invited, honored and bid Godspeed to infidel Ken Ham, who teaches that faith is not enough to get to Heaven...


You either care about everyone, or else you don't care about anyone. You cannot selectively decide who to care about; for if you do, you are simply proving that you are a phony who only does good works to be seen of men to please yourself, instead of to please God. If you genuinely love God, then you must love everyone unconditionally with the dear Savior's unfeigned love. I CARE about everyone, because God cares about everyone.

I knew that Pastor Jeff Redlin at Pensacola Christian College was a big phony the first 5 minutes that I met him. I told him that I was homeless, sleeping in Walmart's parking lot, and Redlin just walked away. I know that he heard me, because I saw his countenance drop, with a startled look on his face like he didn't know what to say or do. The face of a coward is the back of someone's head as they walk away. What a coward!!! Pastor Redlin is a disgrace as part of the clergy. I pray and hope that PCC will fire Redlin, the sooner the better. What goes around comes around! That is the reciprocating law of life. You cannot hurt and shun innocent people and expect to get away with it. I did nothing wrong at PCC, yet Pastor Redlin and PCC leadership has banned me from attending their Campus Church. That just proves what I am saying is true, that the cult system always comes first, and individual people don't matter at PCC. SHAME on the PCC camp.

Dear reader, either you care and love about EVERYBODY, or else you really don't care about ANYBODY. You may have the people fooled (like PCC leadership does), but you cannot fool God who peers into all human hearts. Hebrews 4:13, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” We must all give account before God in eternity as individuals.

Jesus set the divine example for everyone, by expressing loving friendship toward Judas, the man whom had just horribly betrayed Him to die. Jesus knew in John 6:70 that Judas had a devil in Him. Yet, our precious Savior still expressed love toward Judas. God knows that I love everyone in the PCC camp. I do not hate any living creature, not even bears (I really don't like bears, especially brown Grizzly bears that are known to be 20 times more aggressive than black bears. They eat humans). I hate their falsehoods at PCC, their false doctrine, their evil support of false prophets and their damaging self-righteous bad attitudes; but I do not hate anybody in the universe.

God knows that I humbly tried three times in the summer of 2022 to make peace with Campus Church and PCC leaders, but they cruelly refused. And so we are at a standoff, and the Lord Himself will need to settle this matter. God knows that I am not the one wickedly bidding Godspeed to devils in the pulpit, PCC are guilty of doing that. Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. ” Amen and amen.
