The Rift Between Fundamentalism & Neo-Evangelicalism

Proverbs 22:28, “Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.” Jeremiah 6:16, “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.” Revelation 3:2, “Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

I love those three passages of Scripture! When I read those Bible verses, I think of Christian Fundamentalism. God wants us to ask for the OLD PATHS. The Bible says not to remove the ancient landmarks, which our FATHERS HAVE SET. Jude 1:3, “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.By God's grace, I am earnestly contending for the faith. I may be rude in speech, calling pastors “stupid sometimes, but I am not ignorant of 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.

The Bible tells us to be WATCHFUL and to STREGTHEN the things that remain. That means to defend and uphold the infallibility and inspiration of the King James Bible. That means to uphold the free grace Gospel by which we are saved. That means to uphold the fundamental doctrines of the Word of God (e.g., Jesus' deity, the Godhead, Jesus' blood sprinkled on the Mercy Seat in Heaven, Jesus' sinless life, Christ's bodily resurrection, Jesus' virgin birth, et cetera). Spirituality without theology is creeping into churches today by the hour! You won't hear pastors' Joel Osteen, Rick Warren or Steven Furtick expounding on these vital fundamental Bible doctrines!!! They're all preaching generic sermons, although captivating as they may be.

Before 2014, I was ignorant of the extent of the giant rift between the Fundamentalist camp in America, and the Neo-evangelical camp. After my unfortunate fallout with the pastors at Harvest Baptist Church, I began to look deeper into what Bob Jones University believed, to see why the pastors of Harvest had become so intolerant of me. By sheer coincidence, I dug out some old sermon tapes by Pastor Jack Hyles, and heard a positional sermon from 1994 titled: 'The Battle Of The Ages,' in which Dr. Hyles says Bob Jones University make light of Bible inspiration. That opened my eyes! They sure do make light of inspiration, which is why the Bob Jones' crowd use, sell and support umpteen corrupt Bible versions!

At one time 75 years ago, Bob Jones University (BJU) was the citadel of Fundamentalism in America. But after Dr. Bob Jones Sr. went to Heaven in 1968 things slowly began to deteriorate and change. In 1927 when Bob Jones College opened their doors, they used only the King James Bible (because that is what 99% of the churches used back then). As the years passed, and then decades, BJU rolled with the tide; and as the new Bible revisions flooded onto the market, BJU became indifferent to the threat of the Devil's never-ending rash of “new” and “improved” Bible versions. 

In their lame Statement of Faith (posted on their college website), BJU brags that they have never changed their position on the Bible. What they are really admitting is that as hundreds of new English Bible revisions have flooded onto the market, they haven't taken a stand for God against any of them! That's like a man bragging that he hasn't changed a thing on his house since he bought it 50 years ago, and it is in shambles—rotting wood all over the place, a roof caving in, a broken down fence, overgrown with weeds, broken windows and a missing front porch. That is Bob Jones University's spiritual condition today! They have nothing to brag about, let me tell you!!!

I love the folks at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. They won my heart and have had it since 2014, but because they are diehard Neo-evangelicals, they drove me out of their church as a Fundamentalist. That is what's at the root core of the matter, nothing else! Like the Apostle Paul, I told THE TRUTH, and they couldn't handle it. Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?Since I am not an apostle, the pastors at Harvest have no respect for my preaching, but I am telling THE TRUTH. It doesn't matter who I am, the truth is what matters. I know God is on my side, because I am telling THE TRUTH. 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.”

In 2017, I literally begged to come back to Harvest, because I was in love with a woman there. I humbled myself to Pastor Marty Herron. I explained my broken and traumatic life. I explained that I am a graduate of Hyles-Anderson College, which he already knew. I offered to voluntarily do any job they had for me to do, to be a part of their ministry. I offered to clean toilets, literally. Pastor Herron threw me under the bus. He cruelly told me to, “Go elsewhere,” to find a church that agreed with my beliefs. Well, I couldn't find one. That's on him. What kind of pastor refuses to help a broken man, who has a humble and cooperative spirit, who is literally begging merely to come back to church; and if possible, to find a place to serve God voluntarily in the church? A bad pastor, that's what kind! He couldn't offer me a bus route to work on, because they have no bus ministry. In fact, he couldn't offer me any ministry to work in, because Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is barren! They only have their money-making schools—a stinking religious business!

Since 2014, after they drove me out for telling THE TRUTH, I have always wanted to return to Harvest, because they became my church family for the year I attended. It broke my heart to learn painfully that I had never meant anything to them at all. I felt like a spurned lover, and reasonably so. God will hold my blood to their account at Harvest, for the past 6 years I haven't had a church to attend. In eternity, Marty Herron, Gary Walton, and the other pastors of Harvest, and the church itself who are fully aware of the ongoing situation with me, will all be held liable by God, because they chose lies over THE TRUTH! Lordship Salvation is a lie of the Devil. The English Standard Version (ESV) and all other modern perversions (translated from the 1881 corrupt Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort Greek) are a lie of the Devil.

I have humbly offered to remove all my criticisms from the internet about Harvest (to the best of my ability), and let the matter rest with Harvest Baptist Church, in exchange for simply letting me come back to church. I admit that I am still in love with a woman there, and she is worth the world to me. I won't stop preaching against Bob Jones University, because the truth needs to be preached. BJU is the head of the dog, Harvest church is the tail. If Harvest church wants to continue to bear the same reproach as the ungodly reprobates at BJU, then so be it. I offered to make peace with Harvest, which offer still stands. 

They have ignored me all these years. If I lose out on the woman I want to marry because of telling THE TRUTH, then God will make it up to me. Pastor Jack Hyles wisely said that: “To lose something in the will of God is to find something better.” I am sad that I cannot get to know the woman I love, because of some stupid pastors that would rather follow a theological madman like Dr. Steve Pettit, who is recklessly steering Bob Jones University into an iceberg of Lordship Salvation, on the icy sea of the corrupt modern Bible revisions. 

I am just a lonely hurting dog! I admit I was surprised when Pastor Marty Herron told me that I couldn't come back to attend church. No man of God would be so unchristian. Harvest has a big sign in front that reads: “Helping People Develop A Heart For God.” I guess I don't qualify as a person. What Pastor Herron did was wrong and sinful. God will be his only Judge for setting his brother at nought (Romans 14:10). I know my bombastic website intimidates some people, but I really am the man behind the curtain in The Wizard Of Oz. I'm just a nice guy with a loud bark. I wish Harvest could see my heart, and know how much I want to love and be a part of their church, but they are playing the Neo-evangelical card, and I am a fighting Fundamentalist. Can't we all just get along?

I am attending a new small independent Baptist church on Guam, which I plan to keep going to with my family, but I sure wish I could also go to Harvest sometimes and become their friend. If the Bob Jones camp are willing to tolerate me, I am definitely willing to tolerate them. I did it for all of 2014 and was happy at Harvest, but they made an issue. THEY MADE AN ISSUE, not me! I was happy at Harvest, but they made a big fuss when I tried to be helpful. If they simply would have loved me and been patient with me, I know we could have worked things out.

Lord willing, I want to find a wife. There's a young woman at Harvest I want to marry, but she won't know if she wants to marry me unless she gets to know me, and that means I need to attend her church. But because I am a Fundamentalist, and they are Neo-evangelicals, I am being punished for it. Sometimes I hate doing the right thing, but it is the right thing! Galatians 6:9, And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.Sometimes we just have to trust the Lord, and wait, which is frustrating. God is good.

How They Prayed

 Philippians 4:6, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” 1st Thessalonians 5:17, “Pray without ceasing.”

George Whitefield, the famous English evangelist, said: “O Lord give me souls, or take my soul!”

Henry Martyn, a missionary, cried as he knelt on India's coral strands: “Here let me burn out for God!”

David Brainerd, missionary to the North American Indians 1718-1747, declared: “Lord, to Thee I dedicate myself. Oh, accept of me, and let me be Thine forever. Lord, I desire nothing else; I desire nothing more.” The last words in his diary, written seven days before he died, “Oh, come, Lord Jesus, come quickly. Amen.”

Thomas a Kempis, 1379-1471, said: “Give what Thou wilt and how much Thou wilt, and when Thou wilt. Set me where Thou wilt and deal with me in things as Thou wilt.”

Dwight L. Moody implored: “Use me then, My Saviour, for whatever purpose and in whatever way Thou mayest require. Here is my poor heart, an empty vessel; fill it with Thy grace.”

John McKenzie prayed thus when as a young missionary candidate he knelt on the banks of the Lossie: “O Lord, send me to the darkest spot on earth!”

“Praying Hyde,” a missionary in India, pleaded: “Father, give me these souls, or I die.”

Mrs. Comstock, a missionary in India, uttered this prayer of parting when she sent her children home: “Lord Jesus, I do this for Thee.”

Don't Play With Someone's Heart That Loves You

Revelation 3:15-17, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:”

I fell in love with a young woman across the street from me in 2017. I diligently tried to go back to Harvest Baptist Church where she attends, but her pastors can't get over themselves, so they refused, as they have cruelly since 2014. So much for the love of God. It's just as well, because they don't believe right at Harvest. Anyway, I bought a care bear to give the young lady, and personally gave it to her. I wrote her a long love letter. I poured out my soul to her, and pretty much told her that I wanted to properly court her and marry her. To my dismay, she coldly left the bear outside my door later that night when I returned, with a mean letter telling me never to contact her again. She was no better than her cruel pastors.

Yet, still today three years later, she waits for me every so often when I am returning home, timing herself. She hears my music (I like to feel loud music) and walks out toward me from her friend's house when I arrive. My heart leaps when I see her, and I feel happy, but yet sad later on, confused and wondering why she does that. Is she leading me on? Is she letting me know that perhaps she does have some feelings for me? Is she playing me for the fool? Is she confused herself, not wanting me, but not wanting to let go either? As you can imagine, this scenario is frustrating for a man who loves a woman. I have always loved her, and my feelings have never changed since I first saw her mowing her lawn in 2017 across the street from me. But she spurned my love in 2017, and has never told me anything otherwise. So why does she want me to see her every couple months? I am 100% sure she is deliberately doing this.

I pondered this matter this morning, and thought about Revelation 3:16-17. I think that is exactly how God felt. He was also frustrated with the church at Laodicea. They thought they were good Christians. The Bible says they were increased with goods. Like Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, they had a fancy big building. They had money. They had acceptance in the local community. They were a prestigious church, like Harvest. But also like Harvest, they were a disgrace spiritually. The Lord Himself called the Laodicean church naked, blind, poor, wretched and miserable, contrary to what they thought about themselves.

I wrote much last year in 2019 in my website articles, during the months before Christmas, about the woman across the street that I have been in love with. I thought for a time that perhaps Harvest Baptist Church was going to invite me back in love, but they didn't, and I was heartbroken again. I saw the woman that I love again last Saturday. She timed herself so that I could see her. She looked so miserable. Life will do that to you. I wish she could know my heart of love for her. I wish she could know all the wonderful things that I want to do to make her happy. She'll never find a man who would do more for her than I would. My family knows that I shower them with blessings all the time, because I love them. If I'm your friend, you have a friend for life. I would never do anything to hurt the woman I love, but she seems to want to hurt me. Leading someone on is cruel. She either wants me or she doesn't. I do, but she doesn't seem to know what she wants. I guess that's a woman for you...lol.

I think that is why Jesus Himself was so frustrated with the church at Laodicea. Jesus loved them dearly. He wanted what was best for them. But they chose rather to linger in mediocrity, just like the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. They falsely thought they were doing well at Laodicea, but the Lord said they were wretched and blind. Like Harvest, they had plenty of resources, but they were actually naked and poor the Lord said. They were half in, and half out, which frustrated the Lord. Jesus said He would rather have them hot or cold, take your pick, choose a side!

That is how I feel toward this young lady whom I dearly love—choose me or not, reject me or love me, but don't keep me hanging for years. I'd gladly wait 7 years like Jacob did for Rachel, if I just knew there was something to wait for. But all I have is her waiting for me every so often, meeting up with me at a distance, letting me know that she remembered me for some unknown reason. As you can imagine, that is frustrating. Perhaps she wants me to write more about her, to see what I am thinking, wondering if I still feel the same about her. I absolutely do feel the same, feeling nothing but love toward her and a desire to spend the rest of my life with her, but she doesn't seem to want me, yet she leads me on. I think I know how the Lord felt about the church at Laodicea. They were the lukewarm church, half in and half out. Jesus said He wanted them to choose sides, and to stop straddling the fence.

The Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is apostate! They promote Dr. Steve Pettit, who preaches hardcore Lordship Salvation, and is a personal friend and supporter of Dr. John MacArthur (who is an alumni of BJU). These are evil men, who pervert the grace of God, and in so doing attack the God of grace! I wish my beloved friend across the street would come visit me at the Bethel Baptist Church in Yigo, where I have been attending. She is settling for chicken nuggets at Harvest, when she can have ribeye steak at a real church! Harvest cannot make up their minds on the 29 different Bible versions they use. Their own pastor admitted to me in 2014 that they have two dozen different Bible versions in their pews each Sunday. Uh, does anybody else see a really big problem with that? I sure do! Does not the Bible teach that God is not a God of confusion? (1st Corinthians 14:33) So why all the confusion?

Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is spiritually poor, naked, wretched, blind and miserable, but they don't see it. That was the same problem with the church of Laodicea—they were spiritually blind to their disease. Oh how I long for churches to get right with God. Oh how I long in my soul for churches to use only the inspired King James Bible. Oh how my heart desires for pastors to preach a free grace Gospel, and to expose the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation. Mr. MacArthur actually calls salvation “an exchange.” He uses that very word! He says salvation is an exchange of all that you are, for all that Christ is! That sounds really good and religious, doesn't it? 

The problem with MacArthur's teaching is that salvation is a gift, not an exchange! A gift and an exchange are two very different things. Yet you've got fools like Dr. Kevin Bauder, who claims that Lordship Salvation still falls within the realm of orthodox theology. Have you lost your theological mind man? Romans 11:6 teaches salvation is either by grace or works, but it cannot be both. Likewise, salvation cannot be both a gift and an exchange. You must choose sides in this debate, and your eternal destiny hangs in the balance!

I pray for Abby each day. I love her. But she seems to want to play with my heart, which is frustrating. Everybody plays the fool. I want to get married soon. I am looking diligently for a wife. I may not find the woman I want, but in the end what is really important is that I find the wife that God's wants me to have, and I will love her forever. I know the pain of not having a wife for 15 years, so when I do find her, Lord willing, I am going to cherish her every day. God is always good, no matter what! Jesus is precious!!!

The Importance Of Listening To God

2nd Chronicles 36:15-16, “And the LORD God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place: But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy.”

Before we can obey God, we have to listen. Before a child can be taught to obey their parents, they must first be trained to listen. Most Christians listen to God with filters, only hearing what we want to hear. That is our problem. God gave us two ears and one mouth to teach us a very important lesson—We ought to listen twice as much as we talk! If we don't listen, we can't learn! We have to become good listeners. The reason why God's people are divided in our churches is because we're not all listening to God. It all starts with the proper attitude, “Am I willing to listen to God?” Get rid of the filter. Listen to what God is trying to tell you.

Most Bible preaching falls on deaf ears! It has always been that way. This is exactly what the Bible means in Isaiah 6:10, “Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.” Every faithful Bible preacher knows the frustration of speaking to deaf ears, blind eyes and hard hearts. The Lord feels that way too, when we don't listen! So God paradoxically says for the preacher to make the ears of the people heavy with truth. Since they don't want to hear, preach the truth until they go deaf spiritually. Since they don't want to see the truth, preach it until they go blind spiritually. Since they are hard-hearted, preach the truth until their hearts are calloused fat with it:
Matthew 13:15-16, “For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.”

Verily, Verily, I Say Unto You

Most people have a problem listening to God. We cannot OBEY until we first start to LISTEN. John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” The words “verily, verily” is an old English term, which means, “hearken, hearken” or “listen, listen.” Jesus is saying, “listen, listen,” to what I am saying!!! Are we listening. I want to listen, without any filters on my heart, nor blinders on my eye, nor earplugs in my ear. Oh, how God deserves our utmost and undivided attention.

Ironically, the fattest (calloused) hearts I see today are the hard-hearts of stubborn Baptist pastors who won't listen to reason concerning the satanic Alexandrian Bible PERversions!!! Historically, Baptist preachers were once the most effective for God, and I still believe that is true today, but it is changing very quickly. Did you know that Dr. Hyles' mother, Coystal Hyles, was a Methodist until she turned 40 years old? Brother Hyles was born later on when his mother was 39 years old (she was born December 13, 1887 in Illinois). Dr. Hyles could have just as easily became a Methodist preacher had she not changed over to the Baptist church at the time he was born. That is an interesting thought. Parents have the most profound influence on their children for the rest of their life. Without Coystal Hyles there would have been no Dr. Jack Hyles—the great man of God that he was throughout his entire earthly ministry. Dr. Hyles listened to God. He wasn't perfect, and neither are his unjust critics, but he ran the race for Christ faithfully.

King Zedekiah and Israel Refused to Listen to God

Our text passage of Scripture from the Old Testament is disturbing, telling us that despite God's compassion in sending messengers to the rebellious house of Israel to help them do right, they instead mocked God's messengers and misused the prophets, even killing them! Matthew 23:37, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!” All the Bible knowledge and college degrees in the world mean nothing if we don't obey God, and we cannot obey Him if we don't first LISTEN to what He says in the Holy Bible.

God spoke through the prophets in the Old Testament, because they didn't have the complete Word yet. Today, God speaks through His Son, Whose “name is called The Word of God” (Revelation 19:13). Hebrews 1:1-2, “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.” God no longer speaks today through prophets, because we now have the complete Word of God. I believe that Book today is the inspired King James Bible. We learn about the Living Word (Jesus Christ) by searching through the Written Word. John 5:39, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.”

Here is a great truth to learn in Luke 8:11b, “The seed is the Word of God.” We find a prophecy in Genesis 3:15, that the seed of the woman (the incorruptible Word of God, made incarnate in Jesus Christ) would be enemies with the Devil's corruptible seed. Speaking to the serpent (Satan) God said, “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” A woman has NO SEED! Only a man produces seed, so that conception can take place in a woman's woman, fertilizing one of her eggs. Since Mary had never known a man (i.e., no carnal knowledge), where did the “seed” come from for Jesus to be born? That seed was THE WORD OF GOD (John 1:1-3)! John 1:14, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” Isn't that a beautiful truth? Yes, it certainly is my friend!!!

One of the saddest stories in the Bible is the Old Testament factual account of king Zedekiah, who despite being plainly and repeatedly warned by God through Jeremiah the prophet, DIDN'T LISTEN:
2nd Chronicles 36:11-17, “Zedekiah was one and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD his God, and humbled not himself before Jeremiah the prophet speaking from the mouth of the LORD. And he also rebelled against king Nebuchadnezzar, who had made him swear by God: but he stiffened his neck, and hardened his heart from turning unto the LORD God of Israel. Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed very much after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house of the LORD which he had hallowed in Jerusalem. And the LORD God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place: But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy. Therefore he brought upon them the king of the Chaldees, who slew their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary, and had no compassion upon young man or maiden, old man, or him that stooped for age: he gave them all into his hand.”
The preceding passage of Scripture sounds just like America today!!! We are a stiffnecked people. The Holy Bible has been banned legally from our nation's classrooms since 1963. Abortion murder has been legal nationwide since 1973. Same-sex perversion has been legal nationwide since 2015. God in His love and mercy has sent us preachers, like Evangelist Billy Sunday and Pastor Jack Hyles, but we as a nation have mocked the men of God, criticizing them at every turn. Meanwhile we honor the vilest of perverted Hollywood entertainers and rock stars!

The reason why God's people are divided is because we're not listening to God. Before a child can be taught to obey, they must first be taught to listen. Our biggest problem as Christians today is that we don't listen to God. We listen with a filter, only hearing what we want to hear. Jeremiah 21:8, "And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death." God gave the Israelites a choice, to submit to the king of Babylon or be destroyed. God gave them one of two choices: The way of life, or the way of death. Sadly, they chose the way of death.

God had compassion on the people, by sending them messengers (prophets) to tell them what to do, but they mocked God's messengers:
2nd Chronicles 36:15-16, "And the LORD God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place: But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy."
They mocked God's preachers, just like most people are mocking the King James Bible only preachers today, not taking the issue seriously. Meanwhile, Satan is ruining most of the churches with perverted, corruptible seed, in the modern Bible versions. I would infinitely rather be despised for preaching the truth about the inspired King James Bible, than go along with the 95% of shallow preachers today who won't stand for the inspiration of the King James Bible, and refuse to expose the Devil's counterfeit Bible perversions. I'd rather suffer on the side of right, than prosper on the side of wrong! I'd rather divide over truth, than be united by error!

I always marvel at Luke 16:32, where Abraham told the rich man in Hell that if his five living brothers won't listen to Moses and the prophets (i.e., the Holy Bible), neither will they listen though one came from the dead. Wow! Even while suffering on the cross, Christ's mockers cried out for Jesus to prove Himself. I've learned that people either want to believe or they don't, and nothing else matters. If a person won't LISTEN to the simple Gospel, then no amount of human wisdom nor eloquent speech will win them over to Christ.

Israel refused to LISTEN to God's Word, as preached by the prophet Jeremiah, until the Lord became angry and pronounced judgment upon them. 
Jeremiah 21:14, “But I will punish you according to the fruit of your doings, saith the LORD: and I will kindle a fire in the forest thereof, and it shall devour all things round about it.”

Woe Be Unto the Pastors That Destroy the Sheep!

It is the pastor's job to be a shepherd over his congregation, to protect them from enemies creeping into the church. Tragically, America's pastors today are not protecting the Lord's sheep. The people are NOT the pastor's sheep, they are THE LORD'S SHEEP! Jesus told Peter in John 21:17 to “FEED MY SHEEP”!
Jeremiah 23:1-3, “Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD. Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD. And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.”
Nothing is confusing and driving God's people away from the truth today more than the Devil's counterfeit Bible versions, which have infected the churches. America's churches have lost their authority, because the new Bible paraphrases are not the inspired words of God. The inspired King James Bible is a literal, word-for-word, translation! If you don't have a King James Bible in English, you don't have a Holy Bible!!!

God was angry at Israel for her continued spiritual harlotry with idols, vowing to personally “FIGHT AGAINST YOU.” The Lord has been incredibly patient, as He is with us today, but the people refused to listen to God's Word:
Jeremiah 21:1-11, “The word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD, when king Zedekiah sent unto him Pashur the son of Melchiah, and Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest, saying, Enquire, I pray thee, of the LORD for us; for Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon maketh war against us; if so be that the LORD will deal with us according to all his wondrous works, that he may go up from us. Then said Jeremiah unto them, Thus shall ye say to Zedekiah: Thus saith the LORD God of Israel; Behold, I will turn back the weapons of war that are in your hands, wherewith ye fight against the king of Babylon, and against the Chaldeans, which besiege you without the walls, and I will assemble them into the midst of this city. And I myself will fight against you with an outstretched hand and with a strong arm, even in anger, and in fury, and in great wrath. And I will smite the inhabitants of this city, both man and beast: they shall die of a great pestilence. And afterward, saith the LORD, I will deliver Zedekiah king of Judah, and his servants, and the people, and such as are left in this city from the pestilence, from the sword, and from the famine, into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of those that seek their life: and he shall smite them with the edge of the sword; he shall not spare them, neither have pity, nor have mercy. And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death. He that abideth in this city shall die by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence: but he that goeth out, and falleth to the Chaldeans that besiege you, he shall live, and his life shall be unto him for a prey. For I have set my face against this city for evil, and not for good, saith the LORD: it shall be given into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it with fire. And touching the house of the king of Judah, say, Hear ye the word of the LORD.”

Americans Are Not Listening to God

My friend, America has become a big insane asylum today. Sodom was a nice place to live compared to every large city in America today, where punk street gangs, illegal drugs, prostitution, thieves and all manner of evil are commonplace. The police are outgunned in many neighborhoods by the gangs! Several millions of Americans have lost their homes to the ungodly banking cartel because of their fraudulent fiat “funny money” hoax (aka, “Federal Reserve Notes”)! It's not real money. What thieves! Most businesses in America are shady, hiring shady lawyers, who force consumers to sign “thug forms” (contracts with tons of fine print) that are all legally in favor of the business, leaving the least rights (if any at all) for the consumer. Businesses today automatically sell private personal information to other companies, unethically justifying it by giving you the “option to opt out” if you don't like being raped as a consumer. What horrible people run business today!!! We shouldn't have to do anything to retain our right to privacy! Everything in the United States is becoming intrusive, rude, greedy, inconvenient, a hassle, frustrating and no one seems to care about it. This is not even close to Biblical Christianity. It's certainly not loving one's neighbor as thyself!

Just as Israel thought everything was fine, and that they could continue unpunished in their wickedness, so also are Americans today in denial, full of pride and saturated with all manner of wickedness. We deserve God's hand of judgment, and it is coming!!!

Are We As Individuals Listening to God?

Everything that God teaches is right! Each of us has a place of ministry in the Body of Christ. Are you saved? If so, where do you fit into the Body of Christ? In what capacity are you serving the Lord, helping the local New Testament church? What are you doing to share the clarity and simplicity of the Gospel with the lost? Many Christians today are like a car with a dead battery. Their light is not shining, but the battery is there. That is, they are saved, but their light for Christ concerning the Gospel is not shining.

2nd Corinthians 4:3-4, “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” I just noticed something in the preceding Scripture. I always point out that Satan blinds the mind of unbelievers, and this is very true, but look at who is mostly to blame for people not getting saved... “But if our gospel be hid.” We are mostly to blame as believers, if we don't let our Gospel light shine for Christ!!!

Hearing The Still, Small, Voice Of God

1st Kings 19:11-12, And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.

Wow! Can you imagine a wind so strong that it can rent a mountain, and break a rock into pieces? I cannot even imagine such natural force. The Bible says that God did it, so this was a bonafide miracle. There is NOTHING too hard for God to do! Genesis 18:14, “Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.” What a beautiful truth? No Sarah, there is nothing too hard for the Lord to do! If God promised to give you and Abraham a son in your old ages, you can count on it! The Lord kept His promise 15 years later, and Isaac was conceived.

There is another great truth to be learned from our text passage of Scripture. The Old Testament prophet Elijah sought for the Lord in the mighty wind that broke the rocks into pieces, but found Him not. Then Elijah sought for God in the massive earthquake, but found Him not. And then there was a raging fire, in which Elijah sought the presence of the Lord, but found Him not. Then amazingly, Elijah heard God's VOICE, but it was a still small voice. I cannot overemphasize enough the incredible magnitude of this truth! God speaks to people through His Holy Spirit, in compliance with the written Word of God. The Holy Spirit NEVER leads someone contrary to the Word of God. If you ever hear someone saying that God led them to commit sin, you know that they are lying. 

Millions of people today are searching for God in all the wrong places. That reminds me of a popular country song by Johnny Lee that I heard when I was younger, “Looking For Love.” That song came out in 1980 when I was 13 years old, the same year I got saved. Lord willing, perhaps one day I'll find a Christian lady who is as lonely as I am, and we'll get married. Millions of people sit in front of their television, searching for God in all the wrong places. Some people seek God in having a religious experience. Others seek God through performing rituals in a formal church. I have news for you friend, you won't find God in a church building!

What saith the Scripture? John 5:39, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” You'll find the knowledge of God in the Scriptures. What saith the Scripture? John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.Here is your answer dear friend. The only way to God the Father is through His only begotten Son. Amen! We learn about Jesus in the Scriptures, as we just read in John 5:39. So if you want to find God, then you need to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES to learn about Who Jesus is, and what He did on the cross to pay for your sins, and why He did it. That is so exciting that I just want to jump and shout hallelujah!

Luke 17:20-21, “And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

God is a Spirit (John 4:24). God's Holy Spirit lives inside every born-again believer (Romans 8:9). That is what it means to be “born-again,” being born of God's Spirit. 

I was very disturbed to read what Evangelist Ray Comfort thinks it means to be born again. Ray thinks it means that a person's life so radically changes, that that person is said to be reborn. Dear reader, that is absolutely NOT what the new birth means. You and I were born into this world spiritually dead (Ephesians 2:1). By nature we are alienated from God (Colossians 1:21). The new birth means that the incorruptible seed of God's Word (i.e., the Gospel), springs forth in new spiritual life when you place your faith in it. God's Holy Spirit unites with your dead spirit, quickening (bringing life) to it. The new birth is exactly that, being born anew into God's family by faith in Jesus Christ. 

The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness and coming judgment. John 16:9-11, “And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

People today are seeking for God in the wind, fire and earthquake. When you get saved you won't feel any different inside. When I got saved I didn't see stars, angels or hear heavenly voices. The presence of the Holy Spirit is that still, small, quiet, voice of God:

1st Kings 19:11-12, “And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.”
I love that! The prophet Elijah looked for God in the wind, the earthquake and in the fire, but God came to Elijah in A STILL SMALL VOICE. That is always where you will find God my friend. Turn off the TV. Turn off the radio. Put down the electronic toys. Pick up the Holy Bible and let God's Holy Spirit speak to your heart in that precious STILL SMALL VOICE.

Don't Judge Those Who Stand Wrong, If You Don't Stand

Ephesians 6:10-13, Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

I tremendously love Pastor Steven Anderson of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona. I love him for many reasons, but mainly because he STANDS! Dear reader, don't you dare criticize Pastor Anderson, if you don't stand at all. Every time I brag on my Brother in arms, fighting together as bloodied veteran soldiers on the spiritual battlefield, someone feels compelled to criticize Pastor Anderson. Why criticize the guy out battling on the frontlines? We've got a bunch of armchair quarterbacks in our churches today, who criticize the players on the ballfield, while never lifting a finger to serve God, contend for the faith, or share the Gospel with lost sinners. 

Do you know why I am supportive of my imperfect Christian brother? It is because I am also a soldier fighting on the battlefield. We are engaged in a spiritual war! Let the armchair quarterbacks run their mouths, but I am going to encourage the guy who is actually playing in the game! Let the pinko communists and leftist liberals run their mouths, but I am going to encourage those who stand to preserve our freedom. Let the fruitless believers run their mouths, but I am going to encourage Pastor Steven Anderson for his aggressive soulwinning efforts and for standing against sin. I'd rather see a guy with wildfire than no fire! 

Granted, I think Pastor Anderson is wrong to hate homosexuals (which he sometimes says in his preaching). We ought not ever hate any sinner. God commands us to love our enemies (Luke 6:27). Do you think God hates His enemies? Of course not. I respectfully disagree with my dear preacher brother. Albeit, Pastor Anderson is faithfully standing against sin! My brother may be wrong in his disposition, but he is right in his position! I would much rather be wrong in my disposition (standing wrong), and right in my position (standing for what is right); than to be right in my disposition (standing right), but wrong in my position (standing for that which is wrong).

2nd Timothy 2:1-4, “Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.We've got a bunch of Neo-evangelical sympathizers today. Look how apostate John MacArthur has become, and who he associates with these days! That does not surprise me, considering that Mr. MacArthur is an unsaved reprobate concerning the Christian faith. Dr. MacArthur is considered by many to be the godfather of Lordship Salvation, which is another gospel.

Like I said, I don't agree with everything Pastor Steven Anderson preaches. I don't approve of everything that he does. But the guy is courageously standing! YouTube has deleted over ten thousand of Pastor Anderson's sermon videos, terminating dozens of YouTube accounts, because he preaches against the sins of feminism, Modalism and homosexuality. Kindly said, I wouldn't want to be the owners of YouTube, when they stand before God in eternity (Ecclesiastes 5:8; 12:13-14). God is going to hold them accountable for who, what, where, when and why they censored their users. Jesus said: if you've done it unto the least of these My brethren, you've done it unto Me (Matthew 25:40). 

God is going to ask YouTube's owners in eternity why they allowed homosexuals, abortionists, feminists and evildoers to speak all manner of filth, wickedness and blasphemy against God and His children; but they persecuted godly Bible preachers, banning their truthful sermons as hate speech. God is not going to care about the social platform and politically correct agendas of our time, He is going to judge only on the basis of what is good or evil (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14). God will hold YouTube's owners accountable (Hebrews 4:13; Matthew 12:36; Matthew 25:40). I say that humbly, for we must all appear before the judgment seat of God (Romans 14:10-12). The $64,000 question is will you appear in court as a child of God (2nd Corinthians 5:10-11), or as an unsaved criminal (Revelation 20:12-15)?

1st Peter 4:17, “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” Job 20:5, “That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?” I love Job 20:5. The people who own and set policies on YouTube are hypocrites! They allow transgendered perverts to corrupt our youth with homosexuality (John 15:19), but persecute Bible preachers who are trying to help them do right (2nd Timothy 3:12). 

Transgender celebrity Nikkie de Jager has made over $12,000,000 on YouTube. It is blood money! Yet Pastor Steven Anderson preaches freely and he has been banned restlessly. So evildoers can promote all manner of wickedness on YouTube, but no one can speak against them with the Bible without being banned. What saith the Scripture? Proverb 29:27, “An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.” Here is the truth of this entire matter. The unjust man (the wicked person) is an abomination (he is loathed) to the righteous man, and unjust man is an abomination to the righteous man. Pastor Anderson is a righteous man—a preacher of righteousness! God-fearing believers and sin-loving homosexuals will never get along!

Since I am also a righteous man, made righteous by the righteousness of God through faith alone in Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:9), I am supportive of my righteous brother in Christ, even though he is lacking in some areas. I am going to stand with whoever is standing for what is right, even though they might not be standing properly. I am tired of fellow Christians siding with the cooperative world instead of the uncooperative preacher. What is wrong with us folks? Are you really going to criticize the righteous preacher who is getting the job done, because he isn't doing it the right way; while the sinful world is doing everything they can to stop, hinder and destroy him? Not me buddy, I am with Pastor Steven Anderson all the way! We are at war, and I am going to help strengthen every preacher I can find who is standing, not throw rocks at him because he isn't perfect. 

Hey, when your child gets hit by a car and the ambulance arrives, do you start criticizing the paramedics for wearing plain clothes instead of uniforms? Do you scrutinize them while trying to save your child's life, because they didn't use their siren when they came? Do you scold them for every little thing you can find, hindering them from doing their job? No, you shut up and let them do their job. I know Pastor Anderson is offensive, which is one reason I love the guy. Pastor Danny Castle said it well: “God pity the preacher that the world don't hate!” A preacher worth his salt should offend sinners! Luke 6:26, Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

The world actually hates Jesus Christ, not Christians. John 7:7, “The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.” Jesus is the Living Word (John 1:1-3, 14; Revelation 19:13). The Bible is the Written Word (2nd Timothy 3:16; Matthew 4:4). Dr. John R. Rice (1895-1980) called them twins.” The Word of God was made incarnate (flesh). John 1:14, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.We were born-again by the incorruptible seed of God's Word (1st Peter 1:23). The Bible is every believer's mother. That is how I know that the King James Bible is God's Word. I know my mother! The Word of God testifies against the sinful world.

When I see YouTube promoting all manner of filth, sodomy, perverseness, and ungodly shame; but mercilessly censoring my Christian brother for standing against sin, I get angry about that! Job rightly calls them “hypocrites.” Job 20:5, “That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?” So if you ever wonder why I support Pastor Steven Anderson and his church, it is because I am looking at the bigger picture dear friend. We are at spiritual war with the flesh, the world and the Devil (Ephesians 6:10-18). I am not going to criticize my allies in the war, even though we may disagree on some minor issues. 

There are thousands of pastors all across America who deliberately avoid the internet, to avoid criticism being in the public eye. They like to keep things simple, quiet and peaceful in their life and church. They have a small group of people that they shepherd, making a nice living from the small group they feed. I don't think there is anything wrong with that, but such pastors won't receive anywhere near the eternal rewards, nor reap the eternal results, nor see an hundredfold people saved, as Pastors like Steven Anderson! That is why I love the guy, he's a Gatling Gun in our Christian arsenal.

Whereas the average pastor has his dozens (if that), Pastor Anderson has his thousands! That makes a lot of people envious! I am not uplifting Brother Anderson, he will be the first to admit that he is nothing without Jesus Christ, which is exactly what I feel about myself (John 15:5). Brother Anderson just works a lot harder than everybody else! I am standing by my brother when the guillotine is coming down! I see all the Satanic forces coming against my brother, and I am letting everyone know that I am with him in the heat of the battle!


American Hero: Pastor Steven L. Anderson!

In sharp contrast, Bob Jones University are corrupting the Gospel (aka, Lordship Salvation, Calvinism), spreading corruptible seed (i.e., the modern perversions), bidding Godspeed to heretics like Dr. John MacArthur, and aren't standing for anything anymore! God's curse is on the Bob Jones' crowd (Galatians 1:6-9), and according to Titus 1:10-13 they must be exposed! Pastor Anderson is correct on the Gospel of free grace, correct on the King James Bible, doesn't bid Godspeed to false prophets, and I love the guy for taking an uncompromising stand. I know some trolls scrutinize him for little things, but they are barking up an empty tree. That dog don't hunt! From what I can discern, the critics who speak the loudest against pastors like Grayson Fritz, Steven Anderson and Roger Jimenez are doing the least for God!

I love you all in the Lord, whoever you may be. I am not a respecter of persons. I have openly refuted areas in which I disagree with Pastor Anderson, like the Reprobate Doctrine. He has refuted me at times, which is to be expected, because we are preachers. Yet, at the end of the day we are on the SAME TEAM in Jesus Christ. He is my Christian brother! I love a truth-teller. I have had web visitors say that they feel they've known me their whole life. Do you know why? It is because we all share a common bond of a love for THE TRUTH. I feel like I have known Pastor Anderson all my life, because we both share a common bond—we love Jesus, righteousness, soulwinning and the truth!!!

Why Harvest Baptist Church On Guam Lacks Compassion

Luke 7:41-47, “There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most? Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged. And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment. Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.”

I was listening to Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) preach a couple weeks ago, and the following statement caught my attention like a sonic boom...

“The pastors have destroyed the churches, and they've been trained by people that have never built churches, and they have no compassion.” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “Many Pastors Have Destroyed My Vineyard

That explains why churches like Harvest Baptist Church on Guam lack compassion for hurting people like me. I attended the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam for one year, between 2013 and 2014. The Bible says that a godly man who abides in the Scriptures hates every false way. Psalms 119:104, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.” After attending Harvest for several months, God gave me a burden to help Harvest's pastors see THE TRUTH. What saith the Scripture? Proverbs 12:17, “He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.” I bought several books with my own money and gave them to the pastors. They resented my help! I gave the pastors Michael P. Bowens helpful book titled: I Never Knew You.” 

Pastor Marty Herron's son-in-law, who was an associate pastor then, was so offended that he broke off a dinner invitation I had been given by him and his wife to come over for dinner the next night. They didn't even have the courtesy to explain why they cancelled, and I stood in front of my house until 11 p.m. waiting for them across the street to invite me over. I went inside and cried, being rejected and despised for telling THE TRUTH. Proverbs 12:17, “He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.” 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 also gave the pastors Dr. Al Lacy's helpful boom titled, “NIV: The Antichrist's Bible.” They didn't like that one either. I gave them Pastor Max Younce's helpful book titled, “Martin Luther: Master Of Deceit.” I was a fighting Fundamentalist in a cesspool of Bob Jones University's Neo-evangelical graduates. BJU's graduates were trained by academics at the college, not by church builders, so they have no compassion! That perfectly explains why Harvest's pastors, then and now in 2020, couldn't care less about me. They might as well have hung a noose around my neck and pushed me off a cliff.

Pastor Marty Herron sinfully threw me under the bus from 2014 to 2018, and now their new pastor Gary Walton since 2018 has backed the bus up on me, banning me from returning. Sadly, they couldn't care less and have ZERO COMPASSION. Any genuine man of God would have reached out in love, trying to make peace with me. But you see, these are immature young people who lack compassion. They are heartless religious workers trained by heartless academics. Still today in 2020, Harvest Baptist Church on Guam refuses to allow me to attend their church services. 

Truthfully, the only reason I even wanted to go back is because I fell in love with a young woman in their church in 2017, but she left a letter by my front door telling me never to contact her again. I lovingly gave her a really cool care bear with her name embroidered on it, placing it directly into her warm hands, but she coldly left the bear by my front door later. Her BJU pastors have taught her well how to be calloused, cold and cruel, just like them. The bear told me how mean she was, and that he never wanted to go back. So I cried as I gave him away to the thrift store. I hope the bear will forgive me for putting him through that...lol. It was my only hope that the bear might find happiness in the loving arms of someone who wanted him. I know how the poor bear feels.

From all that I have seen, Harvest Baptist Church from top to bottom are heartless toward hurting people. I literally begged for their help three times in 2017, and many times since, but they have NO COMPASSION, just like Dr. Hyles said. ...

“The pastors have destroyed the churches, and they've been trained by people that have never built churches, and they have no compassion.” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “Many Pastors Have Destroyed My Vineyard

Harvest Baptist Church is a spiritual dungheap on the island of Guam. They sinfully promote Bob Jones University's 'The Daily Platform,' featuring the apostate preaching of Pastor John MacArthur's good buddy Dr. Steve Pettit (a theologically incompetent rich snob). God's curse is upon the Bob Jones' crowd, for perverting the Gospel (Galatians 1:6-9). When you mess with the grace of God, you are attacking the God of grace!

I am quick to tell people that I am as narrow-minded as the Holy Bible. God's opinion is my opinion! That is what the Bible is you know, God's opinion. When you form an opinion different than God's opinion, that is called heresy”! My friend, there is no controversy if you believe the Bible. If someone tells me that they don't believe the Bible, we don't need to proceed any further into our conversation, because we have no common ground. I am a Fundamentalist! I believe that the King James Bible is the holy, perfect, infallible, innerant, preserved and verbally/plenary inspired Words of almighty God. Verbally means word for word. Plenary means the whole canon of Scripture (all 66 books). Pastor Texe Marrs was not a Fundamentalist, nor did he care to claim to be one. Dr. Marrs actually denied that the book of Esther is inspired, calling it a fraud because God gave the Jews victory at the end. Really Texe? I sometimes think Texe said that stuff just to make Zionists angry.

I cherish this wonderful little story tucked away in the Scriptures. This dear woman was a woeful sinner. Jesus said that her sins were many. I don't know how you esteem yourself dear reader, but my sins have also been “many.” I don't have a single fault. That is correct, I have “many” faults, of which I lost track decades ago because they were so numerous. Jesus said to whom much is forgiven, the same loveth much. I have been forgiven of much, which is why I am a loving person. Since God in His mercy has bestowed an abundant amount of love and forgiveness upon a woeful sinner like me, I am compelled to do likewise with a broken and humble heart of love toward everyone. Since Harvest's pastors are academics, who've' been trained by academic snobs, the people of Harvest haven't been taught how to love either.

In a paradoxical way, I rejoice that the members and pastors of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam lack compassion for me, and not me for them. The blood is on their hands! This is all their doing, not mine. I am the victim, they are the perpetrators in this conflict. I love them all unconditionally at Harvest with God's unfeigned love. The blood is on their hands for promoting corruptible seed (perverse Bible revisions). The blood is on their hands for promoting another gospel of Lordship Salvation. The blood is on their hands for bidding Godspeed to false prophets like Dr. Steve Pettit and Pastor John MacArthur. I simply tried to help them by showing them THE TRUTH, which is what a true friend does. For that I was shown the door, treated cruelly, and have been sinfully ostracized by the church since.

Pastor Jack Hyles said: “All across America businessmen are destroying churches!” Dr. Hyles made this profoundly true statement in his sermon titled: “I Find No Fault In This Man.” Jesus put it this way in Luke 16:13, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” You see, businessmen think in terms of dollars and cents (money), but a godly preacher thinks in terms of truth, righteousness and pleasing God. 

Sometimes to be ethical and do what is right, we have to take a financial loss. Sometimes doing the right thing costs us, and sets us back, and is not in the best interests of the organization (but it is pleasing to God). Sometimes pleasing God means the church will shrink in size, not grow. Businessmen are destroying churches because they want to do things in such a way that the church grows in popularity in the community—at the expense of soulwinning, preaching against sin, separation, moral standards, calling names of evildoers and false prophets, and refusing to hobnob with Neo-evangelicals and other apostates.

My blood is on their hands at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, because they drove me out of their church in 2014, and have sinfully ostracized me since, because I faithfully told THE TRUTH. Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” In my humble opinion, Harvest's former pastor (Marty Herron) fled Guam in shame. The face of a coward is the back of someone's head as they run away from a battle. Like a coward does, Pastor Herron threw me under the bus for his own benefit. As David told Saul, God will judge between me and thee (Romans 3:4). I told the truth!

Bob Jones University is a shameful institution today, who have changed from what their godly founder once believed. Dr. Bob Jones Sr. (1883-1968) preached a free grace Gospel, not the damnable heresy of Lordship Salvation which they teach today. God hasn't changed (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8). The Gospel hasn't changed (Galatians 1:6). It is Neo-evangelicals who have sinfully changed, to their own destruction (2nd Peter 3:16-17). There is not a more phony group of professed Christians today, woefully lacking in both doctrinal soundness and compassion for people, than the ungodly Bob Jones' crowd!

The Rift Between Fundamentalism & Neo-Evangelicalism

Proverbs 22:28, “Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set .” Jeremiah 6:16, “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, a...
