The Beautiful Bible Story Of Onesimus And The Apostle Paul

Philemon 1:9-19, Yet for love's sake I rather beseech thee, being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ. I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds: Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me: Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels: Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel: But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly. For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever; Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord? If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself. If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account; I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.”

I love this story. Onesimus was the slave property of Philemon. Before he got saved, Onesimus ran away to Rome to hide as a fugitive. It appears that the Apostle Paul met Onesimus in prison, where he led the young man to the Lord. The apostle Paul writes a letter to Philemon, his brother in Christ, pleading with him to take Onesimus back, not as a slave, but also as a new brother in Christ. This is a precious story. Paul goes as far as to tell Philemon that if Onesimus has stolen or owes him any money, the apostle vows to pay it all back himself. Paul said that whereas beforehand Onesimus had been of no worth to either his owner or Paul, he is now a valuable asset in Christ to both men. 

The Apostle Paul exemplifies the blessed Savior here. We were all debtors to sin, guilty and deserving of God's wrath. But Jesus died for our sins on the cross, paying a debt that He did not owe, because we owed a massive debt that we could not pay. WHAT A PRECIOUS SAVIOR!!! 

I marvel that so many pastors in these modern apostate times are getting the Gospel entirely wrong. This is because unsaved religious men fail to connect the dots between law and Christ, or respectively, law and grace. God authored ONE BOOK. And then God Himself made TWO great divisions to His inspired Word of Old and New Testaments, or respectively, LAW and CHRIST. The law shows humanity our sinnership, guilty condition and need for redemption. Romans 3:19-20, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

The law then brings us to Christ to be saved by grace through faith. 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.” The Bible is so plain and clear to understand in this matter, It behooves me to say that 99% of pastors today have God's simple plan of salvation wrong! As long as we stay focused on LAW and CHRIST, God's plan of salvation remains simple, easy and free. 

But when wicked, but well intended men, like Steve Pettit and John MacArthur and Ray Comfort and Marty Herron, ADD to God's plan of salvation, requiring people to give up their sinful ways, then it ceases to be God's simple plan, and has now become something different, man's plan of salvation.

I like to visit Baptist church websites to see what they believe, just to see where we're headed in fundamentalism in America. I read one church website the other day which requires a person to “commit your entire personality to Christ as Lord to be saved. That is not the Gospel. All this nonsense about making Jesus Lord is unbiblical. You get saved by receiving Jesus as your Savior. John 1:12-13, 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: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

You receive Jesus as your Savior by faith, by taking God at His Word as recorded in the Scriptures. God knows our thoughts. The Lord sees when we decide to trust Jesus alone as our Savior, and miraculously saves us. If you have never read Michael P. Bowen's wonderful book, 'I NEVER KNEW YOU,' it is a tremendous defense of the simplicity of the Gospel. I wish every preacher in America would read it. Michael simply teaches the plain Holy Bible.

The story of Onesimus is a beautiful picture of the Gospel. The Apostle Paul assured Philemon that He would gladly pay whatever debt was owed by Onesimus. JESUS PAID IT ALL!!!

Repentance Is Toward God, Acknowledging THE TRUTH, Not From Anything

Acts 20:21, “Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.” 2nd Timothy 2:25, “In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;”

I am so sick and tired of idiotic pastors who corrupt the Gospel by adding words that God did not author in the Holy Bible. When asked for their view on repentance, countless woefully ignorant pastors have said to me over the years, “Well you can't turn TO something unless you also turn FROM something.” To the logical human mind that sounds very reasonable. Yet the Bible does not say that, does it. You cannot show me any place in the inspired King James Bible where it says to turn away “from something to be saved.

Dear friend, it simply doesn't matter what you are turning away from, because the man who repents toward God and the truth is saved. By using the clever mentality that “you can't turn TO something unless you also turn FROM something,” you can add anything you want to the Gospel, perverting God's grace. The popular teaching these days is that to be saved you must turn away from your sins. This is what Bob Jones University adds to the Gospel, perverting God's grace. Most religious literature teaches that you must turn away from sinful ways to be saved. That is not what the Bible teaches! 

One of the most ungodly institutions today is Bob Jones University. Sadly, tens of thousands of churchgoers have been deceived and infected with BJU's heresy of wrong repentance and Lordship Salvation. BJU has blood all over their hands. I have been faithfully preaching for decades against these evils, but I am tired. One of the most ungodly places I have ever found is the rotten Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. Their pastors disregard truth. When I attended the church for one year in 2014, I was sickened by the things I heard and saw. Harvest has very low moral standards. Harvest's pastors preach Lordship Salvation. I witnessed to many of their staff members, who serve as school teachers, and others as deacons in the church, who clearly were not born-again Christians. They all believe that you cannot be saved unless you turn away from your sin first. That is a works based counterfeit plan of salvation.

According to Galatians 1:6-9, God's deadly curse is upon Bob Jones University and Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. They all did me wrong! They drove me out of their church, banned me from returning to church services, and have cruelly ostracized me since 2014. In 2017 I was desperate for a church family, and pleaded three times with the church pastors to return. They were cruel and selfish, telling me to go away. My heart was broken, for the second time. It was bad enough that they forced me out of the church in 2014, but now despite my apologies and humble plea to simply sit in church on Sunday, they sinfully rejected me. 

The Bible says that if we don't forgive others, neither will the Lord forgive us. Any forgiveness that refuses to even allow a man to sit in church services is a false forgiveness! Matthew 6:14-15, “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” Pastor Marty Herron refused to forgive me! Jesus will not forgive him either. I do not believe Mr. Herron is saved at all, because he thinks you must turn away from a sinful lifestyle to get to Heaven, which is self-righteousness. The true Gospel only focuses on JESUS, a false gospel focuses on YOU. Anytime a preacher speaks of something that YOU must do to be saved, he is a liar who is preaching another gospel!

Harvest's Pastors And Staff Have Much Blood On Their Hands

When I attended Harvest Baptist Church on Guam throughout 2014, their nurse Kristen Hurlburt fell in love with me. I loved her too and wanted to marry her, but her pastors didn't want me in the church, even though I begged very humbly for a second chance. Those ungodly pastors kept me and Kris apart, and she was pressured by her bosses to get rid of me, and she did in 2017. It hurt so bad the way she cruelly told me never to contact her again. She lied and denied ever having had any feelings for me, which her pastors used against me. I know as sure as I am a born-again believer that Kris wanted to marry me. The Lord knows that she did have feelings for me, but lied when her bosses got involved. God knows.

Folks, this is what happens when pastors reject THE TRUTH. I did nothing wrong! As a true friend does, I befriended Harvest's pastors with THE TRUTH that the modern Westcott and Hort based Bible revisions are corrupted by the Devil. I told them THE TRUTH that false Bibles are an enemy of soulwinning. I told THE TRUTH that Misunderstood repentance is an enemy of soulwinning. I told THE TRUTH that Lordship Salvation is an enemy of soulwinning. For faithfully contending for the faith once delivered unto the saints (Jude 1:3). I was counted as their “enemy” at Harvest (Galatians 4:16), and also by Kristen Hurlburt to her woe and shame. God takes this doctrinal matter VERY seriously! 

Kindly said, I pray for God to avenge me of all of them. Their blood be upon their own heads when they answer to God in eternity! They have all committed the unpardonable sin of adding to the Gospel, effectively denying Jesus Christ as the only all-inclusive means of salvation. If turning away from one's sinful lifestyle is required to get to Heaven, then faith alone in Jesus Christ is insufficient to save! I speak THE TRUTH (Ephesians 4:15). Kris did me very wrong. Harvest's pastors did me very wrong. All I ever humbly begged for was their love, to give me a second chance to quietly sit in church services, and be a part of their church family. 

Tragically, Harvest is nothing more than a glorified private social club on Guam, where only card carrying voted-in members are allowed to attend church. Their ministry only consists of the children of parents who have enough money to finance their child's enrollment into Harvest Baptist Academy or Harvest Baptist Bible College. That is the bulk of the church membership, of financially well to do families, who pat the paychecks of a bunch of snobby Bob Jones University graduates making a career by parasiting off of Christendom. Shame on all of them! Jesus Himself warned in Luke 16:13 that it is IMPOSSIBLE to serve God and money (mammon). Any time that monetary profits takes precedence over hurting people who plead for help (as I did umpteen times), something is very wrong in a church. That is not God's unconditional love. 1st John 3:17, “But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?” There is no compassion at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. 

Harvest Baptist Church on Guam (in the Micronesia island chain) is a lousy social club, a fun center, a house of entertainment each Sunday, where only select members are welcomed. They're pastors are far more guilty than of merely being immature, they are hardened Pharisees who have continually rejected THE TRUTH that I have kindly handed to them for the past several years, placing THE TRUTH directly into their very hands. The new pastor since 2018, Gary Walton, is a very bad pastor, indifferent, cold and not concerned about hurting people like me. Pastor Walton is only there for paying customers. That is sinful and sad. Whereas Jesus left the 99 sheep to go find the one that got lost, Harvest's pastors don't care about losing one like me, because they still have the 99. That is their pathetic attitude.

Likewise, Kristen Hurlburt is not interested in finding a godly man to marry, she just wants a good husband, but not a godly husband. That is her loss. Kris will never find a man who loves Jesus more than I do, and who has a burning passion for preaching the truth and winning souls as I do, or who loves her as much as I still do and always will. When I met Kris at Asan Beach in 2017, she berated me for not attending church. But it was her very wicked pastors who drove me out of church at Harvest, because I befriended them with THE TRUTH. What do you suppose God thinks about that? I had no where else to Go. Kris is your typical religious person, who only views things from a superficial point of view (Matthew 15:8), lacking spiritual discernment. This is the superficial Laodicean church (Revelation 3:15-16). Perhaps God was protecting me from marrying Kris, lest I have the devil for a father-in-law. 

Harvest's pastors said that I couldn't return to Harvest because it would make Kris uncomfortable, because I liked her. Literally, with God as my witness, that is what they said and did to me. Because Kris lied, and Harvest's pastors held a grudge against me, none of them cared about me need to attend church, and they all rejected me cruelly. I have not attended church since, having no church family since 2014 because of them. My blood is on Kris Hurlburt's hands, because she lied before God, and her shameful pastors who selfishly only thought about their own belly and paycheck (Romans 16:17-18). God will judge between me and them all. I was THE ONLY ONE at Harvest who did what was right. I was THE ONLY ONE who told THE TRUTH. Pastor Jack Hyles is right that: “The King James Bible crowd will come out on top.

What is sad most of all is that these people in the Bob Jones University camp just don't care. They are arrogant, sinfully proud and spoiled rotten. Marty Herron bailed from Harvest Baptist Church in 2018, now collecting a disgusting 6-digit salary as the new executive vice president of Faith Baptist Bible College And Theological Seminary (preacher's cemetery) in Ankeny, Iowa. Pastor Herron is a wicked man, who preaches a false gospel of partial faith in Christ plus human effort (aka, turning away from a sinful lifestyle) to get to Heaven. That is the Devil's plan of damnation! Mr. Herron has the blood of thousands of victims upon his hands, of everyone whom he has misled to think that God won't save them unless they make an attempt to stop living in sin.

And sadly, Kris Hurlburt doesn't care either. Her only interest is finding a husband and her career as a nurse. Spiritual things (like the truth) don't matter to her. Colossians 3:1-2, “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” 2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” Kris bids Godspeed to the false prophets at BJU and Harvest, supporting the Devil's fake Bibles, and the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation, and the Devil's lie of turning from sins to be saved.

Bob Jones Alumni Are The Enemies Of Jesus Christ

As much as it hurts my heart that Kristen rejected me as her husband, I sincerely believe that God was protecting me from a wicked woman who couldn't care less about THE TRUTH. If all she wants is a husband, then that is what she will settle for; but she could have married a real man who loves God, loves the truth, and has the capacity to deeply love her like no other man ever could. No man can love a woman as deeply as can a man of God who has a passion for THE TRUTH. It is sad to see the shallow type of men that women settle for, bums. I make no apologies for being a TRUTH TELLER. If I end up staying single because I told THE TRUTH, then so be it. I know that God will bless me. The pathetic Bob Jones crowd may find secular prosperity and happiness in their selfish earthly lives—by selling out to ecumenism, dipping their sails in sinful compromise, going along to get along, and not standing for God and truth—but they will reap what they have sown in eternity.

I was crucified, shamed, mistreated, ostracized, rejected, humiliated and made the enemy by Harvest's ungodly pastors and staff, including by Kristen Hurlburt her self, for which they will all be held accountable by God. I pray for it to be so! They all deeply hurt me, because I befriended them with THE TRUTH. What saith the Scripture? 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. The Bob Jones crowd are liars! Lordship Salvation is a lie. The teaching that you must turn away from sinful bad habits to be saved is a lie. Dr. Steve Pettit's (president of BJU) preaching is full of lies! Mr. Pettit says that you must join, run and faithfully finish the race (the Christian life) to get to Heaven. Pettit says that Heaven is an award for those who run and finish the race. If you drop out of the race and quit, Dr. Pettit says that you lose your salvation!

I love the Bob Jones crowd. I love all people. There is not one human being that I hate. But I do hate evil, as God commands me to as His child (Psalms 97:10). I do hate every false way, as God commands me to. Psalms 119:104, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.” There is a very serious problem in 99% of churches today, which is that preachers no longer walk with God. If they truly did walk with God, then they would HATE the Devil's modern Bible revisions. I mean, take a look at this my friend...

The Bible Has Been Sinfully Changed Merely For Copyright

As Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) wisely said: “Things that are different are not the same.”

This Is The Wickedness That Bob Jones Alumni Support

I could spend literally hours expounding you dear reader in the corruptions found inside today's hundreds of English Bible revisions. It is as shocking as it is disgusting. 

It is for taking a courageous stand against these very evils, that I was horribly and sinfully despised and rejected by the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. For the past 7 long and lonely years I have been banned from returning to church, and ostracized by Harvest. I will never shut up! I am so sick and tired of churchgoers downplaying the severity of this issue as a mere matter of difference of opinion. The two pictures I just shared with you are not someone's mere opinion, they show the BLATANT CORRUPTION found in ALL of the Devil's modern Bible revisions. Do you really think that this is all a mere coincidence? Please don't be naïve.

It breaks my heart that Harvest ousted me as their enemy, because I told THE TRUTH. The churches of Galatia did the same exact thing to the Apostle Paul. Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” I am not the villain, I am the hero! I am like Batman in the popular 2008 film, “The Dark Knight.” In the movie script, Batman chooses to take the blame for the murders committed by Harvey Dent (the district attorney who went mad after the Joker killed his fiancée). To protect Harvey's image and preserve all the good that he had done to clean up Gotham City, Batman decides to take the rap instead. Before he goes insane, Harvey Dent makes this great statement: “You Either Die A Hero, Or You Live Long Enough To See Yourself Become The Villain.” 

Likewise, I have become the villain in all this bad situation with the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. I didn't want to become the villain. But like the Apostle Paul, and Batman, I have been counted as the enemy for doing the right thing! Always be pure of heart! Matthew 5:8, “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.” Do you know why the pure of heart will see God? It is because those who are pure of heart will seek THE TRUTH. Those who are not pure of heart, like the phony Bob Jones crowd today, merely follow the trend. Those who are not pure of heart worship God with their mouths, but their heart is far from Him (Matthew 15:8). You show me a pastor or layman in a church who rejects THE TRUTH when handed to them, and it becomes obvious that they are phony in their testimony. The pastors and staff at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam rejected THE TRUTH that I gave them.

What truths did I give them? One helpful I handed them is a book called, “NIV: The Antichrist's Bible by Pastor Al Lacy. Another helpful book that I handed to them is, Martin Luther: Master Of Deceit by Pastor Max D. Younce. Another helpful book that I handed to Harvest's pastors is by Michael P. Bowen titled, I Never Knew You: The Coming Great White Throne Judgment And How You Can Avoid It.” I hope that you will take the time to read these books, the last two of which are freely available to read online in .pdf format. Sadly, the Bob Jones crowd today are hardened sinners. They are wrong on repentance, wrong on the Gospel, and wrong on the Bible; but if you try to befriend them with THE TRUTH (as I lovingly did in 2014), they will outcast you as an enemy before you even realize what happened.

Since 2014 I have suffered inexplicable emotional pain because of Harvest's rejection, and the loss of Kris as my wife (I KNOW she would have married me), and loss of the only beloved church family that I knew. Oh, how I deeply love them and always will. I have been ostracized as Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer, simply because of my shiny King James Bible only nose. Harvest despises me because of my free grace Gospel only nose. Since 2014 they have not allowed me to join in to play in any of their reindeer games. That is as wicked as Hell, and Pastor Marty Herron knows it, but he is a coward and a rotten ungodly man. Harvest is doing many good works, but Jesus does not know them (Matthew 7:21-23). Anyone who thinks you must turn away from sin to be saved is lost. What saith the Scripture? John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.”

Sadly, the new senior pastor since 2018 has upheld all of the same wickedness as the former incompetent pastor. God's wrath and judgment is upon the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. They are not prospering in God's sight. They are naked, miserable and wretched (as the Lord said about the Laodicean church in Revelation 3:15-16); but Harvest is blinded to their own apostate condition, lulled by a spirit of sinful pride and indifference, and a woeful lack of compassion for hurting people like me. They still have the 99 sheep, so they couldn't care less about me as that one lost lamb.

The Bible foretold that perilous times would come, when people would selfishly do whatever they feel like doing (2nd Timothy 3:1-7). Young people don't go to Bible college anymore to serve God, they enroll into Bible college to pursue a secular career. These young immature girls today are desperate to settle for anybody they can find. It is pathetic. We've never seen ugly times like this, when pastors don't stand for anything anymore. The churches are pathetic these days. Truth means nothing to professed Christians anymore, most of whom are not even born-again. Nobody is saved who believes Lordship Salvation. Nobody is saved who thinks you have to turn away from sin to be saved. 

Kindy said, Dr. Steve Pettit and Pastor Marty Herron are not saved. I KNOW that by the direct perverse teachings from their own mouths. They are religious con men in the pulpit. Ladies and gentlemen, we've got a bunch of unsaved religious infidels preaching another gospel from corruptible seed (perverse Bible revisions) in pulpits all across America! I love these truthful quotes from Dr. Jack Hyles...

“The only inspired Words of God are in the King James Bible!” —Dr. Jack Hyles (an awesome quote —Dr. Jack Hyles (THE REAL BATTLE!”)

“We're in a battle for the Word of God, that's the big battle!” —BATTLE OF THE AGES (an MP3 sermon by Dr. Jack Hyles, “The King James Bible crowd is going to come out on top!”)

These Devil's Bibles are the primary source of all sorts of perverse teachings concerning the Gospel in churches today. Anybody who promotes the Devil's Lordship Salvation is the enemy of God. Please listen to my favorite preacher, Pastor Jack Hyles, expose the Devil's fraud of Lordship Salvation. BJU are God's enemy! Bob Jones alumni are pulling on the same rope as the Devil with their false Bibles, misunderstood repentance and Lordship Salvation. These are all FALSEHOODS!!! Psalms 119:104, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

Repentance Is Toward God, Not From Anything

I hope I have conveyed to you the vital seriousness of this matter of THE TRUTH. Repentance is TOWARD GOD (Acts 20:21b), and not from anything. The truth is that when a man repents toward God, he has believed the Gospel. You don't have to turn away from sinful behavior to receive God's free gift of eternal life. Turning away from sin means cleaning up one's life. Reformation is behavior modification, not Bible repentance. Dear reader, I absolutely cannot stress the importance of this issue enough.

For example: In Pacific Garden Mission's radio program, UNSHACKLED (program #3589 aired in 2020), a woman named Debbie Brooks meets with a religious friend named Sharon:
SHARON: Trusting Jesus is the only thing that can make a difference in my messed-up life. 
DEBBIE: I keep hearing that in church, but I don't get it—how something that EASY can be a life-changer. 
SHARON: Oh Debbie, it's not easy—believing in Jesus means repenting and asking forgiveness for all the old ways, and then GIVING THEM UP FOR GOOD. When you find the COURAGE TO DO THAT, He'll help you CHANGE YOUR LIFE. 
DEBBIE: Huh, well, I'll have to think about it.
BLAPHEMY!!! Dear reader, what you just read taught by Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago is of the Devil, straight out of the pits of Hell. I hope you see how evil this is. PGM has moved away from the hope of the Gospel. According to the preceding UNSHACKLED program, it is NOT EASY to be saved, because you are required to GIVE UP YOUR OLD SINFUL WAYS PERMANENTLY! That is “another gospel” accursed by God! Somewhere along the way, Moody Bible Institute, Bob Jones University and Pacific Garden Mission became devout followers of Pastor John MacArthur's demonic Lordship Salvation garbage theology! God's curse is upon all of them...
Galatians 1:6-9, “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. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”
Pacific Garden Mission are PREACHING ANOTHER GOSPEL!!! We are taught in 2nd Corinthians 11:3-4 that the Gospel is simple. Having to forsake the old sinful way of life is anything but simple. PGM has it backwards. God's plan of salvation is simply that you come to God as a needy sinner, and you receive His Son's sacrifice on the cross as payment for your sins. PGM demands that you turn from your sins first, which is not what the Bible teaches. PGM's false gospel is that you must make a commitment to follow the Lord. Judas followed Jesus and went to Hell. Matthew 27:3 says Judas “repented” of his sins, but he wasn't saved at all. Millions of religious people falsely think they will be in Heaven someday, but they will be in Hell. Luke 13:23-24, “Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.”

If I ask you to please go get something out of my car to bring me, I do not need to first ask you to leave the house. Leaving the house is automatic. Likewise, when a person believes the Gospel, they have repented. Repentance is automatic. That is why I never even bring up the word “repent” when witnessing to someone, because it will likely confuse them. The Gospel of John is God's Gospel tract (John 20:31). In the Gospel of John we find the word “believe” mentioned 85 times, but there is no mention of the word “repent.” This is because repentance is automatic. The man who repents has believed, and the man who believes has repented. They are two sides of one coin, inseparably related. 

Repentance simply facilitates believing the Gospel to be saved. Without repentance no man would ever believe. Repentance is simply acknowledging THE TRUTH that we are a guilty sinner (2nd Timothy 2:25; Romans 3:19-20). The Old Testament LAW shows us our sinful condition and need for salvation, and then brings us to CHRIST in the New Testament to be saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Galatians 3:24-26). That is the simplicity of the Gospel (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4; 1st Corinthians 15:-4). So please don't allow anyone to confuse you by thinking of repentance in terms of LEAVING SOMETHING. Repentance is TOWARD something, toward God, acknowledging THE TRUTH that you are a needy sinner, so that you will REST IN CHRIST for salvation (Hebrews 4:10-11).

Jesus Christ Is The Resurrection And The Life

John 11:23-26, “Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?”

The Lord made this precious promise of the resurrection in John 11:25-26. His friend Lazarus had died four days earlier. Lazarus' body already smelled with rotting decay in the tomb. Jesus is speaking together with Martha, the sister of Lazarus. She is confident that one day in the future her brother will rise up again. The Lord reiterates to her that He is fact IS THE RESURRECTION, AND THE LIFE. 

The Lord says that whosoever liveth and abideth in Him shall never die. It would be bad Bible interpretation to add living to believing based solely upon this Scripture passage. In the Gospel of John we find the word “BELIEVE mentioned 85 times, with no mention of anything else required for salvation. You don't have to believe AND live in Christ to be saved; but rather, to believe in Christ produces the new birth, which makes a person alive in the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9).

I heard Pastor John MacArthur the other day on YouTube speaking very deceitfully. He was saying simply to believe to be saved. Yet, I can show you dozens of other places in his damnable writings where MacArthur requires much more than just believing to be saved. You see, in John MacArthur's errant mindset, faith means commitment of one's entire personality to Christ as absolute Lord, denying of self, turning away from sin, following Jesus no matter what the cost. But that is not the Bible meaning of faith. True faith is resting in Christ's finished work of redemption, and nothing more! Requiring anything more than simply resting in what Jesus did on the cross to pay for our sins is a perversion of God's grace.

We have God's promise in John 11:25-26 that whosoever BELIEVES in the Son of God has eternal life, and will be wholly resurrected someday. The heathen world is continually searching for new technology to extend human life, and even revive the dead in the future. Companies like Alcor freeze dead bodies and decapitated heads of clients for large sums of money. Their hope is that technology will greatly advance in the future, so that their frozen mind can be extracted and reinserted into a new cloned human body. I can confidently tell you that such nonsense will never become a reality. God would not allow such a bizarre thing to happen.

Dear friend, why go to such crazy extremes, when we can simply BELIEVE on the Savior and have the Lord's promise of a new resurrected body in the future? My hope is built on nothing more or less, than Jesus Christ and His 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.

How To RECOMPOSITION Your Body To Good Health

Proverb 27:17, “Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.”

I have been trying something new to lose weight. I've watched hundreds of men's better health videos, on how to increase lean muscle mass and burn fat. This is just one of the videos that inspired me to try it out.

Basically, you're eating a very high protein diet, which greatly curbs your appetite. I have been losing weight, for the first time in several months. The process is slow, like one pound per week, but it works well. In 2017 I am still amazed looking back that I lost 70 pounds. I wanted to lose weight so bad that I decided I would rather die than eat. I used that mentality to fast for a couple days, and then I would eat a full meal every few days. But still, it was really hard to do it. I was just so motivated that it worked. But when I got down to 145 from 215 pounds, I maintained about 157-163 for 1 1/2 years. It was difficult to stay there, because I was still eating a high carbohydrate diet, which made me really hungry. Eventually my depression won out and I stopped trying to fight to stay thin, and within a year I got back up to 208.

I hit 189 yesterday, which is the first time in several months I've been able to do it. My goal is 175, but this time I want to keep my muscle. When I lost 70 pounds in 2017 I lost my muscle with the fat. That is because I didn't eat hardly any protein, nor lift any weights. All I'm doing is eating a high amount of fiber (eggs, chicken, beef, fish, beans, Greek yogurt, egg whites, and protein powder). I get my protein powder at Vitamin World, but I've heard that Walmart even carries it. Each scoop of protein powder has 30 grams of protein. The goal is to eat whatever your weight is in grams of protein. Here is a macro calculator.

Here are my daily recommended macros (for me myself, not you)...

CARBS: 185 g per day (740 calories)
PROTEIN: 185 g per day (740 calories)
FATS: 41 g per day (370 calories)

But I reduce my carbs to only HALF of that (50 to 150 grams a day). I am eating 200 to 240 grams of protein per day (1.2 grams per pound of body weight). I love eating this way. I have a protein shake every morning, at noon and a double before I go to bed (all 4 shakes total 520 calories). That's 120 grams of protein. It really makes you feel full when you get plenty of protein. Plus, 30-40% of protein is burned up as fuel to digest the rest of the protein, which helps to lose weight. It is important to get enough carbohydrates and fat each day. So if you leave the yoke in the eggs, which I often do, I get some fat there. I try to get 40 to 50 grams of fat per day.

The place to cut calories is the CARBOHYDRATES (breads, pasta, rice, donuts, junk food). From all the health videos I have watched by bodybuilders who cut down to get lean, I would limit my carbs to 50 to 150 per day. The U.S. recommended daily allowance of carbs is 300 grams. I get plenty of carbs from beans and green leafy vegetables. I had broccoli, carrots and a big salad for lunch today. I am having dry cooked beans for dinner. I ate 2 chicken breasts this morning. The GREAT THING about this method of losing weight is that you get to EAT A LOT OF FOOD. As long as you fill yourself up with protein, you'll lose weight. Hey, one pound a week is 24 pounds in 6 months. I have learned not to look at my scale every day, because it swings wild from water retention. I focus on eating right and following my macro nutritional requirements and limits for the day.

I just wanted to share this with you, because it is working for me, and I feel great. I can eat a lot of food and still lose weight. I cannot eat whatever I want, but the selection of what I can eat is AWESOME. I had some blueberries today, strawberries. I ate a Greek yogurt (which has lower sugar than regular yogurt). I bought some cans of zero calorie ginger ale, which tastes great. I love fish. I fry it in a little butter under low heat, with the lid on the pan. I ate sea bass (barramundi) this week which has 23 grams of protein per fillet. So 2 fillets is only 200 calories and gives me 46 grams of protein. I loved this helpful video about how Hollywood actors lose weight and get cut for movies. What particularly blew my mind is that they literally eat every 3 hours.

Actors Give Advice On Diet And Exercise (awesome stuff!)

I couldn't believe that eating more frequently is the way to get cut and bring out the muscles. I've been working out lightly, but "RECOMPOSITION" (building lean muscle and losing fat) is 70% diet and consistency. This is something I can do, which doesn't require starving myself. So far so good, but it will take 4 to 6 months, perhaps even a year. The key is to take one's time and not eat in such a way that it cannot be sustained for the rest of one's life. This is NOT a diet. The very word "diet" implies something you do temporarily. The way I am eating is a permanent lifestyle change. I am eating a variety of different foods, which is important to keep it enjoyable, and to provide the body with all necessary nutrients. I snack on nuts. I eat very little sugar. I try not to eat any sugar. I drink water and unsweetened almond milk (which tastes great).

I've been eating these hydroponically grown trays of greens, one per day. They are grown only in water, without any dirt. I use one Tablespoon of low calories dressing, which is only 50 calories. The salad cannot be more than 25 calories. So the whole salad tray with a little dressing is only about 75 calories. Really healthy. I thought you might find this interesting. When I find something that helps me, I like to share it with others. God bless you dear friend, and I give my best of encouragement to you, if you decide to join me in recompositioning our bodies back to good health. You can do it!!!

Jesus Left The 99 Because He Cared About The 1 Lamb

Matthew 18:10-13, Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.

I was sad today because I have no place to attend church on Guam. Sundays are difficult for me. I have literally begged umpteen times since 2017 for the pastors of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam to please let me attend church services. Both their former pastor Marty Herron, and their new senior pastor Gary Walton refuse to have anything to do with me. I was thinking today about Jesus' attitude versus the sickening attitudes of Harvest's several pastors. The Bible says that Jesus left the 99 sheep to go find that 1 lost lamb. I love that about our precious Savior!

In sharp contrast, Harvest Baptist Church on Guam has their 99 church members, so they don't need, want or care about me, that one wayward hurting lamb who needs their love and help. There is no love at Harvest. As Mrs. Beverly Hyles so rightly said: “Hurting people hurt people.” She is absolutely correct! I have never meant to be unkind or hurtful toward anyone at Harvest, but they have been hurting me since 2014, by driving me out of their flock and ostracizing me since. On Sundays I sit home and watch TV, because I have no church to attend. I listen to preaching during the week, and Alexander Scourby read the Bible, but that cannot substitute for fellowship with other human beings. I need a church family.

It baffles me how any group of professed Christians could be so calloused, cruel and uncaring, as has been Harvest Baptist Church for the past 7 difficult years of my life. What started all this? I simply loved them enough at Harvest to speak the truth, as the Holy Bible commands every believer...

Ephesians 4:14-16, “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

Do you see friend? The Bible teaches that speaking THE TRUTH helps us to grow up in Christ, Who is the Head of the Church. We are edified in love through speaking, hearing and receiving THE TRUTH. But what happens when people reject the truth, as has Harvest's shameful pastors? Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.Carefully notice that God's people were destroyed because their religious leaders (priests and pastors) deliberately REJECTED THE TRUTH (the knowledge). 

It is only because of Harvest's cruelty toward me all these lonely years, that I have gone all out to expose them as a cult. Harvest Baptist Church on Guam (who operate the Harvest Baptist Academy, Harvest House and Harvest Baptist Bible College) are guilty of all of the following offenses:

It is a serious matter to God. What saith the Scripture? Matthew 18:10-11, Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. How think ye?” Matthew 25:40, “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” Harvest Baptist Church (pastors, staff and members alike who support them) have my blood on their hands. Jesus said that to hurt even the least of His children is the same as hurting Him directly. Jesus hasn't been allowed to attend church since 2014 at Harvest, because Marty Herron and Gary Walton have dealt treacherously with me. What was my horrible offense? I simply told THE TRUTH. Galatians 4:16, “ Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them.”

There is NOTHING as evil as ignoring a hurting person who is pleading for help, love and a second chance. NOTHING! The silent treatment is a form of abuse. Harvest has been completely ignoring me ever since they told me to Go elsewhere in 2017. They won't respond to my gifts. I mailed them 490 Gospels of John. I gave those Bibles to the Lord, and my reward is in Heaven, but you would think at some point that Harvest's proud, arrogant and stiffnecked pastors who break, humble themselves and seek the Lord. But it hasn't happened!

God Cannot Be Worshipped In Theological Error

Harvest hypocritically has a big sign at the entrance to their church property that reads: “Helping People Develop A Heart Toward God.” What saith the Scripture? John 4:24, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” You won't find the Holy Spirit at Harvest, but a familiar spirit. It is “another spirit,” because they preach another gospel of Lordship Salvation (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4). God cannot be worshipped with entertainment, rituals, going through the motions, the love of money, fake Bibles, manmade traditions and the commandments of men (Mark 7:7-13). 

Mark 7:6-13, “He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death: But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free. And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother; Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.”

I am alarmed that there are two drastically different plans of salvation being preached in churches today, and 95% of Baptist pastors are not taking a stand one way or the other. Please read what Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) preached. This is the correct free grace Gospel. And now take a look at this nightmare theology—the demonic plans of salvation of Evangelist Ray Comfort and Dr. Steve Pettit (followers of Dr. John MacArthur). 

Dear reader,

Either you must turn away from a lifestyle of sin to be saved as Pastor Marty Herron preaches, or you do not need to, but it cannot be both ways (Romans 11:6). 

Either you must make Jesus the absolute Lord of your life to receive God's free gift of eternal life, as Pastor Gary Walton and Missionary Phil Hunt preach at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, or you do not, but it cannot be both ways. 

Either you must exchange all that your are for all that Christ is as Pastor John MacArthur preaches, trading your life for His, but it cannot be both ways!

Either you must count the cost and pay the price as Evangelist Billy Graham and Dr. John MacArthur preach, or you do not, but it cannot be both ways. It made me sick when Mr. Graham died, and Baptist preachers all across America honored him as a saint. In the old days godly preachers exposed Billy Graham! Truth simply doesn't matter to 95% of pastors anymore, because they are serving mammon instead of God. It cannot be both ways, which Christ emphatically stated Himself (Luke 16:13).

Either you must live a continuous lifestyle of turning away from your sinful behavior to get to Heaven, as Evangelist Ray Comfort preaches, or you do not, but it cannot be both ways. Kindly said, if you aren't shell-shocked after reading the article I just wrote and shared with you, then you need to get born-again Dear friend because you are not saved. You DON'T need to life a continuous lifestyle of living right to go to Heaven! The very idea spits on God's righteousness, which is the only thing that will get us into God's Kingdom (Philippians 3:9; Isaiah 64:6).

Either Evangelist Paul Wash is correct that you cannot be saved unless you turn away from sin and reform, and you cannot know in an instant that you are securely saved, or else it is not that way, but salvation cannot be both ways. Birds of a feather flock together! Pastor Washer preaches a false gospel of fear and uncertainty, where you must continually examine your life to determine if you are really saved. That is NOT what the King James Bible teaches (Romans 4:4-6; 1st John 5:13).

“The true Gospel always points you to Christ; a false gospel always points to you.” —Pastor Dennis Rokser

Either you must live a continuous holy lifestyle for the rest of your life to prove the genuineness of the reality of your faith, as Chuck and Daniel Phelps preach at the Colonial Hills Baptist Church, or you do not, but it cannot be both ways.

Either you have to faithfully enter, run and finish the Christian race, which Dr. Steve Pettit insists you must do to be saved; and he says the race is “hard” to complete to earn the” award” of Heaven itself” (those are his heretical choice of words); or else salvation is a free gift that requires no change of behavior at all, but it cannot be both ways. Sadly, Mr. Pettit is the new president of Bob Jones University since 2014 and is influencing thousands of tomorrow's religious leaders, workers and churches worldwide. Satan has crept into BJU and their associated churches, like Harvest Baptist Church on Guam and Colonial Hills Baptist Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. God's curse is upon these wicked false teachers (Galatians 1:6-9; 3:1-3; 5:4; 6:7; Titus 1:10-13).

Either you must stop lusting, lying and living in willful sin to get to Heaven, as Pastor John Piper preaches, or you do not, but it absolutely cannot be both ways! 

Friend, I have just named about a dozen devil-dog preachers who pervert the Gospel of free grace, preaching a tainted partial faith in Christ plus human effort type of counterfeit plan of salvation. Carefully notice that in EVERY case of the preceding corrupt ministers, who preach a perverted gospel, that they all focus on YOU. Every one of those ungodly preachers add behavior modification to the simple Gospel. The Bible clearly defines “the Gospel” (or Good News, Glad Tidings) as Christ's death on the cross to pay for our sins, His burial, and bodily resurrection three days later (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). 

There is nothing mentioned in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 about forsaking a lifestyle of sin, surrendering “all” to Christ, surrendering to Jesus as absolute Lord,” feeling contrition, making a mend, turning over a new leaf, doing penance, formation, feeling sorry for sin, running the Christian race, exchanging your life for Christ's life, counting the cost and paying the price, turning away from sin, nor anything else! Mark 7:6-7, “He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” 

None of the preceding wicked men, nor the millions of unsaved churchgoers who follow them, worship God. They merely superficially honor God with their mouths, as the Bible says, but their heart is far from Him. That is why we read in Matthew 5:8, “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.” I love the book of Matthew! A person with a pure heart will want THE TRUTH. The Bob Jones crowd today honor God with their mouth, but their heart is far from truth and God.

Corrupt Bible Revisions Lead To Corrupt Theology

The Devil is very clever. We see just how clever Satan is in Genesis 3:1-5, when the serpent easily deceived Eve. The Apostle Paul even used the serpent tricking Eve as an example of what he saw happening in the churches of Galatia. 

Psalms 119:104, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.” It is because I love and only use the inspired King James Bible that I hate the Devil's Bible revisions. Dear reader, look at what the Devil's modern Bible revisions have done to the Word of God...

I could give you hundreds more examples of Satanic corruption in the modern Bibles. You show me a pastor who makes light of these Devil's Bibles, and I'll show you a wimpy man who goes along to get along with wicked false teachers! We call them neo-evangelicals! The “neo” or “new” evangelical, as he is called, stands for nothing, driving in the middle of the road (where all the dead skunks are found), parasiting off of Christendom to serve their own belly. Marty Herron is now getting paid well over $100,000 a year, as executive vice president of Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary (a preacher's cemetery) in Ankeny, Iowa. These men belong in prison. God will put them into the Lake of Fire (Matthew 7:21-23). 

Perverting the free grace Gospel is an UNFORGIVABLE SIN. That is what Galatians 5:4b means when it says, YE ARE FALLEN FROM GRACE.Marty Herron and his deceived Bob Jones University clique are trying to be justified by the works of the law. They foolishly don't consider repenting of one's sinful behavior as works,” but that is EXACTLY what it is. I heard Pastor Herron with my own two ears, on a Sunday morning in 2014 at the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, tell a few hundred church members: “It is not enough to admit that you are a sinner to be saved, you must also turn away from a lifestyle if sin.” 

I was sickened and went home in tears, asking God how to handle the matter. The Lord impressed upon my heart that perhaps they were just unlearned men, and needed someone, A FRIEND, to help them see. So I purchased several hundred dollars worth of hard copies of doctrinally sounds books to give them, in all respect and kindness, which I did. The next Wednesday after Bible study I was called into the church office and rebuked, told to cease and desist, accused of causing confusion and divisiveness, and treated like a criminal, as Marty Herron and Joe Hansen sat there. 

Kindly said, it is Pastor Marty Herron who is the spiritual criminal in God's sight, and Pastor Joe Hansen and Jared Baldwin, and Gary Walton, and all of Harvest's shameful pastors, who are guilty spiritual criminals for perverting the Gospel of free grace. They have committed the UNPARDOINABLE SIN, and unless they repent of their counterfeit gospel and BELIEVE ON JESUS alone, they will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:11-15). These wicked men falsely view salvation as requiring repentance AND faith, teaching that a person cannot go to Heaven unless they make a decision to work at sinning as little as possible. 

Evangelist John R. Rice (1895-1980) gets it 100% correct:

“Repentance is not a different plan of salvation from having faith: it is part of the same plan of salvation. Or rather repentance is simply another way of describing or looking at the plan of salvation. One who turns from sin to God has done so by trusting in Jesus Christ. A change of mind toward sin is necessarily involved in saving faith.” [emphasis added] —SOURCE: Evangelist John R. Rice, “Acts: Filled With The Spirit,” pp. 251-252; Sword Of The Lord, Murfreesboro, Tennessee; ©1963

I have heard numerous pastors, including Missionary David Cloud and others, wrongly accuse Dr. Rice of preaching Misunderstood Repentance. As I have just shown you, Brother Rice did NOT view repentance and faith as two separate steps to salvation; but rather, he viewed them as two sides of one coin. Thus, the man who repents has believed, and the man who believes has repented. There is only one thing you must do to be saved friend, and that is to BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (Acts 16:30-31). Please don't miss that fundamental Bible truth, or you will be a mess doctrinally.

I am resolved no longer to linger,
Charmed by the world’s delight,
Things that are higher, things that are nobler,
These have allured my sight.
I will hasten to Him,
Hasten so glad and free;
Jesus, Greatest, Highest,
I will come to Thee.

Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is like the heathen teacher with 30 students, who doesn't care that 1 is failing, just so long as she looks good as a teacher. I mean, there must be something wrong with that one child or their parents, right? That is how a horrible wicked person thinks, which is how Harvest Baptist Church on Guam thinks. They don't care about me, that 1 hurting men, because they still have 99 people who are doing just fine. That is of the Devil friends. Jesus didn't think like the shameful pastors and staff at Harvest, He left the 99 to go after that 1 lost lamb, because the Lord loves everybody.

The shameful pastors at Harvest only care about MONEY. All of their students bring in MILLIONS of dollars each year, paying their undeserved heathen salaries. No one deserves a salary who selectively cares about people. I have been that one lost lamb since 2014, hurting very much in my soul after losing my church family at Harvest. Marty Herron left me for dead, throwing me under the bus. Gary Walton is just as bad, backing the bus up over me. These ungodly people only care about their paychecks. Jesus called that sin (Luke 16:13; James 2:1).

Contrition Over Sin Is Not Part Of The Gospel

Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”

Dear reader, the Devil has crept into most churches today. I love the Bob Jones University crowd very much, God knows my heart, but they are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. The Harvest Baptist Church on Guam has MUCH blood on their hands, including mine. 2013-2014 was one of the happiest years of my life, and I felt loved. I thought Pastor Marty Herron was my friend, but he wasn't. I was only his friend. As Dr. Tom Ferrell says: “A friend helps a friend to see.” I did just that, helping my beloved friends to see. In response, Marty Herron in an e-mail (which I still have) called me the church's “enemy.” Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”

For taking a faithful stand for THE TRUTH, I lost everything! I lost my church family. I lost Kris, who I know would have married me. I lost what happiness I had in my life. And sadly, for the past seven lonely years I have had no church family. Kris is long gone. My soul is in prison, all because of Marty Herron's hatred of me and rejection of the truth of God's Word. Psalms 142:7, “Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.” The new pastor of Harvest since 2018, Gary Walton, is a devil, no better, bidding Godspeed to the same doctrines of devils at Bob Jones University. 2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

Dear friend, God authored one Holy Bible, not two, not thirty-nine! Harvest Baptist Church on Guam and the Bob Jones crowd use, sell and promote umpteen Bible versions. It is wickedness! This is the insanity that they are sanctioning! Pastor Jack Hyles is 100% correct that: “The King James Bible crowd is going to come out on top!” You can hear Brother Hyles say that yourself in his classic needful 1994 sermon called: 'The Battle Of The Ages.'

God made two great divisions of His Word into the Old Testament and New Testament; or respectively, LAW and CHRIST. The Old Testament shows a person that they are a guilty sinner (Romans 3:19-20). The LAW brings us to CHRIST, to be saved by grace through faith alone (Galatians 3:24-26).
“Salvation is not our doing, but it is something that the Lord does. We put our trust in Christ, He is the One that saves us. And again I repeat: He rescues us, He ransoms us, He redeems us, He regenerates us. All of that we find out, simply by reading the Bible.” —Pastor Sheldon Smith, Making A Difference radio broadcast; May 14, 2021; 'The Distinguishing Difference in the Christian Life - Part 10'
Contrition (or being sorry and feeling remorse with intent to reform) is not a part of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Old Testament shows a man that he is a guilty sinner, and brings him to Christ to be saved by faith alone. Romans 3:19-20, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” The ONLY thing that God requires and permits to be saved is the KNOWLEDGE (THE TRUTH) that you are a guilty sinner in need of redemption. The LAW brings us to Christ to be saved by grace. 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.” Dear friend, the Bible is speaks so plain and simple, if we will just leave it alone and believe it as written.

Unfortunately, wicked men like Marty Herron, Steve Pettit, Chuck Phelps, John Piper, John MacArthur, Ray Comfort, Gary Walton, Paul Washer and other Calvinist-minded fools, pervert the Gospel of free grace, requiring MORE than faith to be saved. It is VERY important that the JUSTIFICATION of the believer without by the man Jesus Christ, and the SANCTIFICATION within the believer by the Spirit of Christ (Romans 8:9), be kept separate. The famous Gospel preacher John Bunyan fully understood this truth:
“If you do not put a difference between justification wrought by the man Christ without and sanctification wrought by the Spirit of Christ within, you are not able to divide the Word aright; but contrariwise, you corrupt the Word of God, and cast stumbling blocks before the people.” [emphasis added] —Evangelist John Bunyan
This is the woeful theological error of Calvinists and the Lordship Salvation crowd, particularly the Bob Jones University camp today. Few followers of John Calvin (1509-1564) care to pay attention to the historical fact that Calvin brutally murdered 58 people for merely disagreeing with his perverse theology. So much for living a changed life! Was Jesus the Lord of Calvin's life when he murdered all those 58 innocent people? You'll never get a Calvinist preacher like Steve Pettit to talk about these things? I guess were all sinners, right? Dear friend, nobody has ever faithfully followed Jesus as “Lord.” Steve Pettit is no less of a sinner, nor any more righteous, than the next unsaved heathen. Yes, I KNOW that Steve Pettit is not saved, by the direct testimony of his own froward mouth concerning Christ.

In God's simple plan of salvation as taught in the inspired King James Bible, the LAW shows a person that they are a guilty sinner (Romans 3:19-20). Hence, seeing their hopeless sinnership and deserved penalty of Hell (Romans 5:9, 6:23; Revelation 20:15, 21:8), they are brought by the LAW to Jesus Christ, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Hebrews 12:2, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” That is how you get saved dear reader, by LOOKING TO JESUS. Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) beautifully explains this precious Bible truth in his wonderful sermon called: “The One Thing That Determines Salvation.”

I feel sorry for liars like Pastor Marty Herron, who go around telling people that they must “repent of your sin” to be saved. Ken Ham does the same thing, lying to people! You cannot show me any place in the King James Bible where it says to “repent of your sin” to be saved! What does the Bible say? Acts 20:21, “Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.” 2nd Timothy 2:25, “In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;” So we see that the Bible does speak of REPENTANCE TOWARD GOD, and of REPENTANCE TO THE ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF THE TRUTH. But there is no mention of turning away from your sins to be saved. I triple dog dare you to find it, you cannot! Repentance is simply acknowledging THE TRUTH that you are a dirty guilty sinner, deserving of Hell, so that you will see your need to trust the blessed Savior. It is as simple as: LAW and CHRIST! Jesus paid your debt of sin my friend, and mine too! Christ bled and died on the cross in our place, paying a debt that He did not owe, because we owed a debt that we could not pay (2nd Corinthians 5:21).

Friend, this is no trifle matter to God! When I visited Pensacola, Florida in 2019, I attended the First Baptist Church in downtown Pensacola. I was saddened not to see a King James Bible anywhere, except the one that I held in my lap. They only had NIV's in every pew. I went to their church website and read that the church adheres to Calvinism. I was heartbroken, and knew in my heart of hearts that I could never attend a cesspool of iniquity like that.

I have been diligently praying for years, asking God where to move. It has been no easy journey. The Harvest Baptist Church on Guam stabbed me in the heart, back and tossed me like a bag of garbage, simply because I loved them enough to tell the THE TRUTH (the very truths that I am sharing with you in this very important article). Harvest's pastors are pig-headed, afraid to go against cult headquarters at Bob Jones University. God's curse is upon all of them for perverting the Gospel (Galatians 1:6-9; 3:1-3; 5:4; 6:7). My soul has been in prison since Harvest cast me out in 2014, and has cruelly ostracized me since as their enemy. All I did was love them, being faithful to God to tell THE TRUTH (Galatians 4:16). The Lord has promised to avenge me, and I pray for it night and day (Romans 12:19-21; Luke 18:7-8).

Kindly said, Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is so stupid and spiritually blind that they foolishly think they are being persecuted, but they are naked and wretched and don't even realize their horrible condition. Revelation 3:16-17, “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 have done no evil to tell THE TRUTH!

I recently considered moving to Amarillo, Texas. I found the First Baptist Church of Amarillo. I was saddened when I went to read the church's Statement of Faith on their website. I had to click through about five different layers to finally get to what they believe. It turns out that the church adheres to the official Statement of Faith of the corrupt Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), which was established in the 19th century. The SBC's official position is that to be saved a person must TURN AWAY FROM SIN WITH ALL YOUR HEART. Folks, that is NOT the Gospel, not even close. You don't get saved by turning from anything, you get saved by turning to Jesus Christ.

Carefully notice what the Bible says in Acts 26:20, “But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.” Do you see that turning to God (repentance) is NOT the same as doing works? We are commanded to do works “meet” (or fitting) for someone who is saved. As believers we “SHOULD” (Titus 2:12b) live godly in Christ Jesus. Notice the word: SHOULD, not MUST (that is works); not WILL (that is Calvinism). A believer should live for Christ. But what if we choose not to? Then God's saving grace will much more abound (Romans 5:20). A believer falls IN GRACE, never FROM GRACE! We stand to lose rewards at the Judgment Seat Of Christ, as will many saints, “saved; yet so as by fire” (1st Corinthians 3:15b). I am so sick and tired of reading Baptist church websites that corrupt the Gospel, by adding additional requirements that God does not. The BIGGEST mistake that you will ever make is to follow the damnable teachings of men (Mark 7:7-13; Matthew 15:8-9).

Lord willing I plan to move soon. I am planning on moving to Tennessee. Finding an apartment has been a nightmare! It has taken much longer than I anticipated, and I still have to wait for one to become available, but God willing I will be in Tennessee by the fall. I haven't even started on my medical yet. I need to find a doctor for my pain medications for my neck. Once I get to Tennessee I will need to buy a used car. My life will be upside down for a few months. I have a definite solid church in mind, so Lord willing I will finally have a church family. I cry just thinking about it. Harvest Baptist Church on Guam will never know how much they hurt me, and abandoned the most caring man who ever stepped foot into their damned church cult. All I ever humbly requested from them was the need to attend church services. God will deal with them, cruelly as they have dealt with me for the past seven years. There is no love at Harvest!

I feel overwhelmed with everything right now. I have already set an automatic response for my e-mails. I need a break. I am burned out in my soul. I am so lonely, and hope to find a woman to marry down the road. I need a caring gal to love and share my life with, someone who won't abandon me. I wish I could just get on an airplane now and leave. I think about it every day. David felt that way too! Psalms 55:6, “And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.”

I kindly ask for patience from all my web visitors in the several months ahead, it is going to be difficult for me. Due to my neck pain, doing anything goes against the grain. I have little patience, get irritated easily, and after two hours need to lay down and rest. I have burning throughout my nervous system. It literally feels like I'm on fire. That is related to the stenosis and radiculopathy in my neck. Being in the sun feels good. There is a steam room where I plan move, at a YMCA, which would be helpful. But life is what happens to us when we're making big plans. I feel overwhelmed right now, like I'll never get to where I want to be in my life, but all I can do is take BABY STEPS! By the inch it's a cinch, by the yard it's hard! So one day at a time. Forward ever, backward never!

Please remember me in your prayers, as I do you. I am losing weight well. I've lost 17 true pounds in the past few months. I plan to lose a bunch more, Lord willing. I am eating a healthy low calorie density diet, which is the key. Yogurt, cottage cheese, oatmeal, chicken, fish, avocadoes (in moderation), salads, beans, protein shakes, sweet potatoes, et cetera. I bake everything and fry nothing. I only drink water, except for maybe a club soda or flavored water a couple times a week. I love mineral water! I have been losing weight without doing a lot of walking, which is quite different from the way I lost weight in 2017, torturing myself. Now I am eating properly to get to my ideal weight.

Anyway, I deliberately share my plans about moving and my private life at the end of articles, so only those web visitors who truly read my articles will know what's going on in my life. Thank you for reading this far! I love you whoever you are with God's unconditional love. I am just a humble sinner, a nobody, who feels so unworthy. God is so good. I have no complaints. So many people have it MUCH worse than I do, so I praise the Lord for all my blessings!!! Thank you Lord, for saving my soul. Thank you Lord, for making me whole. Thank you Lord, for dying for me. Thy great salvation, so rich and free!!! Amen!

I always have so much I want to say. I feel like an emotional fool sometimes, but this is who I am, by God's grace. I don't claim to be a good Christian, but I work hard on the ministry day and night which God has entrusted to me, and I genuinely care about the truth and people. I simply cannot do all that I wish I could do. Preachers get tired and suffer pain too, and I desperately need a church family. I have received thousands of emails over the years from hurting people. I hear nightmare stories of what people are going through. The one common denominator in nearly all of their situations is that they refuse to attend a Bible-believing church. They are going it alone. I have been forced to go it alone for the past seven years, not by choice, but because the largest independent Baptist church on Guam despises me as their enemy, because I am right about them being wrong on the Bible, the Gospel and repentance. I love them with all my heart, which I have proven by my constant friendliness, gifts and persistence to tell the truth. 2nd Corinthians 11:6, “But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.”

I am hurting right now (both in body and in soul), so please bear with me in my valley of darkness. I dread moving, because of my life being shaken up completely, but it is the only way out of my situation. My life has been hopelessly stuck in a ditch for many years. If I stay on Guam, nothing will change. I need a church that will allow me to attend, where I won't be banned and ostracized for being human. Even my apologies weren't good enough for Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. They hold grudges and are respecters of persons (James 2:1; Romans 14:10-12). And so, I hope to find a church family to fit in, when I am able to attend a good church and love people again, and hopefully be loved back. My only goal is to love. I never expect to be loved. That is what Jesus would do. But I cannot love people if a local church refuses to let me be a part of their family. So I have loved Harvest from a distance. They hate my rude preaching, because they don't have any spiritual discernment. Unsaved people cannot figure it out (1st Corinthians 2:14-16).

Pastor Bob Gray Sr. (one of my mentors) is so right that most churches today are pathetic! Yes, they sure are! I am a fool for Christ. 2nd Corinthians 11:23, “Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.” I rejoice that, like the Apostle Paul, I am suffering for my faithful stand for THE TRUTH. God only authored ONE BOOK (Matthew 4:4). There is only ONE SAVIOR (1st Timothy 2:5). There is only ONE GOSPEL (Galatians 1:6-9). There is only one Bible meaning of TRUE REPENTANCE (Acts 20:21). It is for defending these truths that I am called into question, abused and ostracized by Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. It may not be a big deal to them, as they go on their merry ways like I don't exist, but God will be their Judge (Galatians 1:6-9: 3:1-3; 5:4; 6:7).

My preaching and my personal life are one and the same, which is why my writings interweave between them. I cannot separate who I am from what I believe. My entire life has been shaped and defined over the past eight years by the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. They became my beloved family in 2013, and I loved them so much. But when I raised a flag of truth for the Lord, Harvest's proud members and pastors killed the prophet, running me out of town in late 2014. In desperation and loneliness I begged with apologies to come back in 2017 and beyond, only to be mistreated further by their cruel hatred and continued rejection of me and the truth of God's Word. It is a big deal to God!

Harvest has no excuses! My words of truth were instantly rejected and shot down as enemy propaganda! It will take me time to heal from years of spiritual and mental abuse at the hands of Harvest's incompetent tyrant, uncompassionate, formal and thug bully pastors. Their arrogant yuppie style of impotent Christianity wreaks of apostasy, theological stupidity and doctrines of devils! Worse, the very mention of my name brings laughter to their wicked mouths, as they chuckle at the “nut” down the street! God will burn them in Hell (Matthew 7:21-23). If I am a born-again believer, then the Bob Jones crowd who follow the garbage Steve Pettit preaches will burn in Hell! Their damnable John MacArthur type of Lordship Salvation is NOT the Gospel, and I will never stop preaching the truth. Sadly, Harvest has a lifetime enemy in God, because they didn't reject my word, they rejected God's Word. Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.”

I titled this article, “Contrition Of Sin Is Not The Gospel,” so I will end with that. We've got a bunch of theologically stupid preachers today who don't know the difference between penitence, penance, reformation and repentance. Here is the truth:
penitence = sorrow for sin
penance = making a mend for sin
reform = turning away from sin
repentance = a change of mind
Repentance is simply the acknowledgment that you are a guilty sinner, which brings you to Christ to be saved by faith alone. I know that is true because JESUS PAID IT ALL!!! I am going to Heaven ONLY because of GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS, and not mine (Philippians 3:9; Romans 10:3-4). I do not need to turn from any sin to be saved. I do not need to be sorry for my sin. I do not need to feel contrition or remorse for my sin. I do not need to stop committing deliberate sin to be saved. I do not need to intend to reform or better myself to be saved. When God saved me, then the indwelling Holy Spirit (Whom God sealed me with at the time I believed) started changing me (Philippians 2:13). To be saved, I didn't need to do anything, nor give up any sin. All I needed to know is that I am a needy sinner, so that I would trust (rest in) Jesus' sacrifice on the cross as payment for my sins. Christ was buried. Three days layer He resurrected from the dead. I trusted in the risen Christ as a 13 year old boy, and God gloriously saved me forever!!! Nothing more has ever been required. I received God's gift of eternal life by faith alone, without works!!! (Romans 4:4-6).

After I got saved, the Holy Spirit (NOT ME) started convicting me about the sins in my life. I experienced penitence (a feeling of sorrow) for my sins. I remember that the Holy Spirit started convicting me not to do certain sins anymore. I experienced reform. These things followed getting saved, NOT as a requirement to be saved. That is where Calvinists, Lordship Salvationists and the Wrong Repentance crowd go astray. They are requiring of a person what ONLY the Holy Spirit can do! Anybody who tells you that you must 'repent of your sin' to be saved is requiring something of YOU!
“The true Gospel always points you to Christ; a false gospel always points to you.” Pastor Dennis Rokser
I don't care if that harelips every dog in the country, that is what the King James Bible teaches. So Dr. Steve Pettit and his damnable circus at Bob Jones University, Faith Baptist Bible College And Theological Seminary, and Harvest Baptist Church on Guam can go straight to Hell, where they are assuredly going (Matthew 7:21-23; Luke 13:23-24; Acts 15:1, 24; Galatians 3:1-3), with their counterfeit plan of salvation. I've rambled on enough. I love you all. Please keep me in your earnest prayers, in the months ahead, as I move, Lord willing. Blessed be the name of our precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!!
