Ungodly Carnal Christian's Attitude Toward False Prophets

Ephesians 5:11, And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” Titus 1:13-14, This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.” 2nd John 1:10-11, “If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speedFor he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

The inspired Word of God is very clear that Christian believers ought not hobnob with false prophets. Rather, we are commanded to REBUKE THEM SHARPLY! We are taught not to entertain and coddle them, as we would a deadly poisonous snake; but rather, to mark and avoid them. Romans 16:17-18, “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”

Sadly, and sinfully, Pastor Paul Chappell of the Lancaster Baptist Church in Lancaster, California is disobeying the Holy Bible! Pastor Chappell has openly bid Godspeed to Pastor John MacArthur, posing in photos with him and praising him as a friend. This is wickedness! Tens of thousands of people are watching (both saved and unsaved), seeing Paul Chappell coddle and treat this deadly viper as a pet poodle. If as a pastor you are not guarding the flock against the heresies of Calvinism and Lordship Salvation, and exposing dangerous Calvinist false preachers who propagate such lies, you have NO RIGHT standing behind the pulpit and preaching every Sunday morning! Pastor Paul Chappell is no fundamentalist!

I have faithfully spent the last 19 years of my website ministry exposing this deadly viper; namely, John MacArthur and other Calvinist preachers like him (R.C. Sproul, John Piper, Paul Washer, Ray Comfort, Steve Pettit, Marty Herron, Gary Walton and other unsaved infidels). Dr. John MacArthur preaches another gospel, teaching that salvation is an exchange of all that you are for all that Christ is. Folks, that is not a gift! The Bible teaches that forgiveness of sin and eternal life are a free gift from God (Romans 6:23; Ephesian 2:8-9). If we must exchange our sins, life and will in order to receive God's offer of eternal life, then it simply CANNOT be a gift. By very definition a “gift is something received without compensation.

I was disgusted and even righteously angered when I read the following comment from one of Pastor Chappell's church members, who defends his incompetence:

“Come on people! They were just praying together about taking a stand for having church services! Perhaps we could all learn from their example, instead of having a critical spirit and throwing stones! Goodness!” SOURCE

The preceding comment was made in response to criticism by concerned saints about Pastor Chappell's downward slide into apostasy, bidding Godspeed to a dangerous false prophet like Mr. MacArthur. Lordship Salvation Is An Enemy Of Soulwinning (an awesome writing by Pastor Jack Hyles), because it hinders people from being saved. Pastor MacArthur is considered by many people to be the godfather of the false “Lordship” gospel.

Paul Chappell's church members would like to dismiss the issue as being a trifle matter, but it is a big deal to God. The issue goes far beyond merely standing together to keep the churches open during this COVID-19 crisis. Here's another Twitter post where Pastor Chappell is bidding Godspeed to John MacArthur at a ballgame. Birds of a feather flock together! What Pastor Chappell is doing is very ungodly, giving credence to MacArthur's heretical ministry that damns tens of thousands of souls to the Lake of Fire. Psalms 119:104, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

The Bible teaches in Psalms 97:10, “Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.” I triple dog dare you to show me where Pastor Paul Chappell preaches publicly against John MacArthur! You never expose the devil you're sleeping with. I have nothing personal against Mr. Chappell, but what he is doing by promoting John MacArthur confuses people.

Humbly said, while faithful preachers like myself, Dr. Bob Gray Sr. and Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) REBUKE THEM SHARPLY (Titus 1:13-14) WHO PREACH THE HERESY OF LORDSHIP SALVATION, Paul Chappell is inviting them to ballgames and prayer meetings. The Holy Bible says to HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP with the works of darkness. Ephesians 5:11, And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

Dr. Jack Hyles taught me an important truth from 2nd Corinthians 6:17-18, “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.The Bible doesn't say to stick around and attempt to change that which has been corrupted; but rather, to COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM AND BE YE SEPERATE. Paul Chappell is not going to lead John MacArthur to repent of his false teaching, but Paul Chappell will be corrupted by John MacArthur. This is why the ecumenical movement is so dangerous! One healthy person plus one sick person equals two sick people!!! Kindly said, Paul Chappell needs to COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM!!!

As you can see from the preceding church member's quote, Paul Chappell has put his church congregation into an awkward situation, where they are being forced to choose sides! That ought not be from their pastor. Pastor Chappell has forced his church members to either turn against him, or defend his unbiblical friendship with false prophet John MacArthur. I hope you see the horrible damage that Paul Chappell is doing! Effectively, Pastor Chappell has endorsed John MacArthur's damnable heresy!!! You sure won't hear the members of the Lancaster Baptist Church exposing Pastor MacArthur when their pastor has gone soft on him.

This is all so sad. Where are the 7,000 who have not bowed their knee to Baal? Where are the faithful preaching preachers today, who spare not and cry aloud against the sins of the people and clergy? I am tired of hearing naïve pacifist believers, who are against hard preaching against sin. They are oh so wrong! Every Bible preacher should possess and preach with a balance of God's genuine unconditional love for all sinners, and an equal hatred of all sin. We must never accept the sin with the sinner, nor reject the sinner with the sin!

SHAME on Pastor Paul Chappell. The Lancaster Baptist Church has done much good. Pastor Chappell has authored many excellent books to help the saints. I admire the man, truly. But if the shoe fits, wear it! I cannot support a pastor when he is buddy-buddying with one of the most deadly false teachers of our generation. Would you play with a Black Widow Spider? Would you play with a Copperhead Snake? Would you drink Arsenic?

By the way, rat poison is comprised of 99% cornmeal and only 1% arsenic. These modern Devil's Bibles are mostly good, but Satan knows that the tiny amount of corrupted content (all dealing with the deity of Jesus and the plan of salvation) will KILL the reader. It may seem like a small matter to you that Bob Jones University, Pensacola Christian College and Paul Chappell are all soft on false prophets, but to do so invites Satan right into our homes. 

Calvinism has crept into most Bible colleges and churches in recent years, but virtually nobody is sounding the alarm bells. I am crying, “WOLF!,” but hardly anybody is listening. Folks, we are under malicious attack by a false gospel. Satan is so shrewd. The Devil is more cunning than you or I can realize. Our indifference and complacency toward false teachers give Satan a strong advantage over us!

That is why Jesus warned 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.Although no pastor would ever admit to serving money as his master, the evidences says otherwise. Paul Chappell is getting paid over $100,000 per year, as is John MacArthur. In fact, MacArthur's net worth is an astounding $14,000,000. Paul Chappell's net worth is at the lowest, $700,000 and climbing. Some estimates place Chappell's net worth at $5,000,000. These men are making tons of money!

In sharp contrast, by God's goodness I have never made a single penny for serving God. I do what I do for Jesus Christ. My website ministry is a diligent labor of unfeigned love for God, truth and people. YOU ARE MY MINISTRY DEAR READER!!! I care about you; therefore, I care about THE TRUTH. John MacArthur is a very dangerous false teacher! SHAME on any believer, whether pastor or layman, who praises or bids Godspeed to a false prophet!
