Swim At Your Own Risk

Proverbs 14:12, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

Guam is surrounded by beaches, nearly all of which have no lifeguard on duty. So instead you'll see signs posted that read, “SWIM AT YOUR OWN RISK!” Every year at least a dozen people drown in the ocean waters around Guam. Surprisingly, a few fishermen die each year, who grew up on Guam. The ocean can be unpredictable! 

I was thinking today about all the false prophets on the internet, particularly YouTube. Anybody and their dog can start a YouTube channel, and I welcome it if you are learned in the Scripture. Unfortunately, we've got heretics like Robert Breaker who teach that people were saved by works in the Old Testament under Mosaic law. You've got heretics like Renee Roland who deny the existence of an eternal burning Lake of Fire. Literally, these two individuals have thousands of fans on YouTube, both corrupt in their theology. I say that kindly, but truthfully. Right doctrine matters!

People literally get angry in defense of Renee, claiming that “she is preaching the Gospel.” Hey, she's a false teacher who denies the reality of eternal damnation in a burning Hell. She is corrupt! Anyone who denies the existence and justly deserved penalty of everlasting damnation is messed up in their mind! I've read numerous comments where her fans say “Hell is not a fundamental doctrine” of the Christian faith. You've got a hole in your head fella! Of course Hell is a fundamental doctrine of the faith. What do you think God saves us from?

I was eternally saved at age 13. I have never once in my lifetime questioned whether or not I deserve to burn in Hell forever, because that is what the inspired Word of God teaches (Romans 6:23; Revelation 21:8; 20:11-15). Something is very wrong with a professed Christian who doesn't think anyone deserves to burn in Hell forever! Swim at your own risk on YouTube folks! Just because someone has a YouTube channel doesn't mean you should follow them! Perhaps someone defends Renee, making the excuse that, “If men would preach nowadays, then women wouldn't have to! Well, that is a lame excuse, because MEN ARE PREACHING THE TRUTH! You've got Pastor Ralph "Yankee" Arnold preaching on YouTube! You've got Pastor Danny Castle preaching on YouTube! You've got sermons by Pastor Jack Hyles, Dr. Bob Gray Sr., Brother Lester Roloff and countless other excellent fundamental Bible preachers online! 

So why do people end up at Joe Peabody's YouTube channel? It is because people don't want to hear the truth from a pastor, they want to hear a rebellious woman preacher instead. They want to hear some guy who has a chalkboard and some markers, who wrestles the Bible and falsely predicted the Rapture three years in a row. I'm talking about Robert Breaker! It doesn't matter what I say, because you're going to do what you want anyway, but you are SWIMMING AT YOUR OWN RISK! I wouldn't listen to anything Renee Roland has to say, because she denies the reality of Hell. She is very clever and deceitful. She openly defends herself by claiming that she doesn't deny the existence of Hell, but then claims that based on her understanding of the Bible that Hell doesn't exist. Say what? 

I have read hundreds of comments from Miss Roland's YouTube followers, and many of them saying things like: “I also have thought about these things, and I don't believe God would punish somebody in Hell forever either!” Despite what Renee claims, she has an army of Hell-deniers following her on YouTube. Folks, why would you need a Savior if there is no eternal punishment in Hell? If we all die and cease to exist someday, that is not anything to be feared. I am not trying to be unkind, I am simply warning everybody not to follow these heretics on YouTube. I highly encourage you to listen to a real man of God, like Pastor Ralph "Yankee" Arnold, who has been saved since 1960. 

Here are Dr. Arnold's daily radio programs, which I cherish! If you are going to spend precious time listening to someone preach the Word of God, why not listen to THE BEST? Do you like eating out of the spiritual dumpster on YouTube? Do you like Robert Breaker's moldy theology? Do you enjoy eating Renee Roland's maggot-infested meals? I am tired of hearing people defend people like Renee, saying that she preaches the Gospel. Well, so does Pastor Danny Castle, but he believes in a literal place called Hell, so why don't you listen to him instead. That is all I am saying. My heart desire's for my web visitors, is for you to stop listening to well-meaning wannabe theologians who butcher the Bible. I'll be honest, much of the stuff I preach I get from Pastor Danny Castle, Dr. Jack Hyles, Pastor Yankee Arnold, Pastor Jeff Owens, Dr. Bob Gray Sr., Evangelist Lester Roloff and other dear saints of God. Right doctrine matters! I mean, why eat toxic artificial sweetener when you can eat real sugar cane?

Now having said all that, I am a hypocrite of the worst sort, because I promote Pastor Steven Anderson, who teaches that Jesus burned in Hell for three days, which is blatant heresy. The Savior plainly told the repentant thief on the cross, “To day shalt thou be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:43). Unless you think paradise is a place of fire and damnation, we have a big conflict here. I love Brother Anderson, and I have learned much Bible from him, but I strongly disagree with him on a few minor issues. I am a firm believer in a pretribulation Rapture, but Pastor Anderson teaches that Jesus' Second Coming is the Rapture. I find it difficult to accept that ANY preacher could follow that line of thinking. 

I also disagree with Pastor Anderson that praying a prayer is the Biblical “method” to be saved. That is simply untrue. Brother Anderson is correct on the Gospel, he just thinks that prayer is the Bible way to come to Christ. I did hear him say that a person CAN be saved without praying a prayer. So that is important to point out. I totally disagree with the assertion that prayer was the Bible method of getting saved. It was that unbiblical requirement to pray that confused me for seven miserable years, after I got saved at age 13. Had I know that believing in my soul was all that was required, it would have spared me much pain and grief of spirit, wondering if I didn't pray right. I believed that Christ died for my sins, was buried, and resurrected three days later. I fully believed all that. I just thought the way you came to Christ was by praying. So to hear Pastor Anderson teach that heresy breaks my heart. I love something that I read by Dr. Bob Jones Sr. (1883-1968)...
“'Pray to be saved. Ask the Lord to save you.' This is what I heard a minister say to a convicted sinner who came forward for prayer at the close of an evangelistic service. Nowhere in the Bible are men told to pray to be saved. There are examples where men did pray and were saved. Men are told to repent, to believe, to obey the Gospel, but the Bible never says to pray for salvation. It does say that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved, but nowhere does the Bible command men to pray to be saved. I think I know why, God, who made the human heart, knew that it was not necessary to tell convicted sinners to pray. If a sinner can see Jesus Christ on the cross, it is as natural for him to pray as it is for birds to sing or flowers to bloom. 'Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.'” —Dr. Bob Jones Sr., “Comments On Here And Hereafter,” chapter: Prayer And Praise, page 163; Bob Jones University Press, Inc., © 1942
Amen, that is great stuff! Dr. Jones is absolutely right!!! Believing the Gospel from the heart is the “method” taught in the Gospel of John and Romans 10:9-10.

I also respectfully disagree with Brother Anderson concerning a young earth. I believe the earth is billions of years old, even though human civilization has only been here for 6,000 years, since God remodeled the world in the 6 days of creation. No two preachers agree on everything, so I speak with caution and love. I simply wrote this article to warn my web visitors against following somebody just because they seem to be correct on the Gospel. If someone like Renee Roland denies the existence of Hell, I would avoid them. Ultimately you have to SWIM AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! Be careful where you enter into the water, because you may not come out!!! Matthew 4:11, “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
