The Three Wills Of God For Divorce And Remarriage

Mark 10:9, “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Matthew 19:8, “He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

1st Corinthians 7:7, “For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.

1st Corinthians 7:1: “Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.” 1st Corinthians 7:9, “But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.”

There is much controversy over the Bible subject of divorce and remarriage. In my humble opinion, much damage is being done by the hypocritical Pensacola Christian College camp today, who shameful shun, reject, condemn and mistreat divorced single people who hope to get remarried. When I first attended Campus Church in 2021, Pastor Jeff Redlin mistreated me as a divorced person, making me feel like garbage by berating, even scolding me for hoping to find a wife at church. That is a very bad pastor, and not a humble man of God.

I can save you a lot of confusion and grief dear reader, by sharing with you a truth that Pastor Jack Hyles wisely taught me from the Holy Bible. There are, in act, THREE WILLS OF GOD for your life:
  1. God's perfect will
  2. God's acceptable will
  3. God's permissive will
Let me elaborate, using marriage as an example:
  1. God's PERFECT WILL is for one man and one woman to get legally married, and to remain faithful to each other for life. This is another reason why imprisonment of married people is wrong in God's sight, because it separates a husband and wife. In God's justice system, the death penalty would prevent this dilemma from happening, freeing the innocent spouse to remarry within God's will.
  2. But if there is the sin of divorce, then God's ACCEPTABLE WILL is for both husband and wife to remain single for the rest of their life, as did the Apostle Paul. I believe that Paul was divorced because he mentioned being “loosed from a wife.”
  3. But if a divorced person is burning with lust, and cannot bear it, then there is God's PERMISSIVE WILL, which we see clearly in 1st Corinthians 7:1-2 and verse 9.
I humbly think I have the mind of Christ. 1st Corinthians 2:16, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” God hates the sin of divorce (Malachi 2:16; Jeremiah 3:20) and so do I. But life is messy because people are messy. We are all sinners. In any marriage you are uniting two sinners. Marriage is supposed to be two people making a life for each other. A marriage means two people never giving up on each other. Sadly, that is not the case these days. Married couples aren't even trying anymore to work out their marital struggles, someone files for divorce (usually the woman). Dr. Jack Hyles is correct: “Divorce is a sin that perpetuates for a lifetime!”

I don't think anyone should ever even consider getting a divorce. It is a coward's revenge and taking the easy way out. I get sick looking at Match.com profiles, seeing that 90% of all the women on there seeking remarriage are divorced. It is truly tragic that Americans have become so sinfully proud, that we have zero tolerance for each other. Proverbs 13:10, “Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.

I have been divorced and single since 2006, not by my choice. I fought for one year to stop the divorce, but U.S. courts are bullies who always get their way. After several years of painful loneliness I decided to move forward with my life. Pastor Marty Herron at the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam cut my throat and threw me under the bus between 2014-2018, preventing me and the church's school nurse from getting married. I know as sure as I am saved that she would have married me, but her unsaved thug pastor coerced her to get rid of me, and she did.

Marty Herron despises me because I TOLD THE TRUTH that he is pulling on the same rope as the Devil for preaching the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation, for promoting the infidel Martin Luther as a born-again believer (who taught Baptismal Regeneration his entire life), for promoting the Devil's counterfeit Bible revisions. My blood is upon Marty Herron's wicked hands, and I pray for God to avenge me upon him swiftly. I will be there in eternity when Jesus tells Marty Herron: I never knew you: I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:23b). With my own two ears in 2014, I heard Pastor Herron wickedly tell hundreds of people in his cult: “It is not enough to admit that you are a sinner to get to Heaven, you must also turn away from a lifestyle of sinning.” BLASPEHMY!!!

That wicked fake preacher was the incompetent pastor of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam from 1999 to 2018. God only know how many thousands of lost sinners became religious, but never got born-again, because of the false plan of salvation being preached today by the Bob Jones University cult (of which Herron is a graduate and active accomplice). God's curse is upon these wicked imposters (Galatians 1:6-9). JUDGMENT DAY IS COMING MARTY!!! What a fool!

Not one verse in the inspired King James Bible teaches to forsake sinful behavior to receive God's free gift of eternal life. Jesus Christ paid your debt of sin friend, and mine, so that we wouldn't have to in Hell burning for ever and ever without hope or rest (2nd Corinthians 5:21; Revelation 14:11, 20:11-15). False knowledge is more dangerous than ignorance! Lordship Salvation is false knowledge! Satan's Bible perversions are false knowledge! The accursed Bob Jones University crowd are not ignorant, THEY ARE WICKED!!! I have warned them incessantly, but they refuse to repent of their false repentance!!!

Since 2017, as I have read thousands of women's profiles on eHarmony and Match.com, they all sound so perfect, and I see their smiling faces, but in my soul I cannot help but wonder why they ended up divorced. The truth is that we all have Skeleton Closets, and we all put forth our best selves on social media, hiding our ugly sins, faults and bad habits. I digress!

So there are three wills of God for our lives. It would be nice if we always stayed within the perfect wills of God for our life. But because we are sinners by nature and by choice, we cannot. That is why I preach hard against the ungodly Pensacola Christian College (PCC) camp today, which includes the hypocritical Campus Church, and their hypocritical senior pastor Jeff Redlin, who abused me as a divorced person in 2021. Instead of heartily welcoming me into their church, he criticized me for telling him kindly that I hoped to find a wife at church. He embarrassed me in front of his wife, saying that if I did find a women to remarry, he wouldn't perform the wedding.

Folks, that is an unwise and foolish pastor, who doesn't think before he speaks. Pastor Redlin's words were hateful, cruel and hurtful, very inconsiderate. But you see, the PCC camp only accept people who are within God's PERFECT WILL. So once you are out of God's perfect will, you are on the outside looking in, and they won't accept you anymore. Of course, if you are divorced and remarried, that is different, because in their mind those sins are in the past. But if you are divorced and single, and hoping to remarry, they look down on you as a wicked sinner, and they do shun people! In other words, PCC is out of touch with reality!

I cannot help it that my former wife chose to legally divorce me. The PCC camp would rather have a man fold a pillow and relieve himself with a box of Kleenex (I am being discreet here), than to remarry as normal people do. This is a major problem in the PCC camp! They do not acknowledge the need and reality that divorced people NEED to get remarried. But PCC is putting themselves in the place of God, condemning divorced people who are lonely, hurting and still have a healthy libido. For this reason I discourage people from going to PCC, or attending their cult that condemns hurting divorced people. What Jeff Redlin did to me is not God's love, it is hypocrisy and cruel hatred. A lot of people foolishly idolize PCC and Pastor Redlin, and sadly couldn't care less about what I am saying, because they are married and not in my painful situation. People sure can be selfish, especially religious people!!! Something needs to change in our pathetic churches, so that hurting people like me are made to feel welcomed instead of shunned by self-righteous pastors and their spoon-fed congregations.

I didn't write this blog for the Pharisaical hypocrites at PCC, because they will never repent and do better. They are arrogant and full of sinful pride, like the dead church at Sardis. I wrote this blog to encourage divorced people, letting you know that there is in fact something called: “The Acceptable Will of God” and “The Permissive Will of God.” There is life and happiness after a divorce, but you won't find it at the Pensacola Christian College cult. My former wife divorced me, so the sin is on her and not me. I blame myself too for our marital problems, taking my share of the fault, but I did not file for divorce nor did I openly agree to anything. I was coerced and literally threatened by my lawyer in 2006, with God as my witness!!!

Yet, pastor after pastor pisses on me, condemning and telling me that I must Biblically remain lonely, horny and single for the rest of my life. They say cruel things like: “Christ is all you need!,” while they hypocritically go home and make-love to their wives, enjoy home-cooked meals and have a companion by their side during surgeries and depressed times. I had NOBODY when I underwent both neck surgeries in 2009 and 2010. I wanted to die! When I am down and depressed, I have nobody to encourage me. Only a wicked, rotten, deluded and very selfish pastor would make a divorced man of 15 years of inexplicable pain of loneliness, feel guilty for desiring to remarry. I am talking about that wicked hypocrite Pastor Jeff Redlin!!! SHAME on Pensacola Christian College. SHAME! SHAME!! SHAME!!!

Exposing Missionary David W. Cloud's Satanic Gospel

1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

Longtime missionary to India, Evangelist David W. Cloud is a corrupt and dangerous man doctrinally, responsible for sending thousands of people to Hell with his false gospel. The inspired Word of God very plainly defines “
THE GOSPEL by which we are saved, those who BELIEVE IT! The Gospel is the GOOD NEWS of Christ's death on the cross to pay for our sins, His burial and His miraculous bodily resurrection three days later from the dead.

In a 2012 (updated in 2019) article on his website, titled: Repentance In Evangelism,” David Cloud heretical starts off his article with this untrue statement:
“Repentance is often a missing element in evangelism today, but it is a prominent theme in the Bible. Following are the answers to some important questions about repentance.” ~Evangelist David Cloud, “Repentance In Evangelism
First off, although repentance is a prominent theme in the Bible, it is NOT a prominent theme in salvation. Evidence of this is that not once does the entire Gospel of John mention the word “repent.” Not once! This is because the man who BELIEVES the Gospel has also repented. Repentance and faith are not two separate actions, even though they are two separate things theologically. The word “repent” in the Bible concerning salvation always is either the Greek noun, metanoia, which means: “a change of mind”; or it is the Greek verb, metanoeo, which means: “to think differently.

Repent in the Bible concerning salvation NEVER means to forsake or turn away from your sins, because that would constitute works. Nor does repentance mean to be willing to turn from sins. Not one verse in the inspired King James Bible (beware of the corrupt modern perversions of the Bible) says to repent “of your sins” to be saved. Ungodly false prophets added those unbiblical words to God's simple plan of salvation (Proverbs 30:5-6). As I just plainly showed you from 1st Corinthians 15:1-4, the Apostle Paul in his defining of the Gospel, never mentions turning away from your sins, nor surrendering your life to Christ as Lord, as David Cloud wickedly teaches (which I will show you in a moment).

Pastor Cloud is wrong on repentance and; therefore, wrong on salvation. He is an infidel, an unsaved religious man, still hellbound in his sins. This explains why David Cloud cannot understand God's free grace, which is without works (Romans 4:4-7). 

Cloud further falsely states:
“Many churches don’t preach repentance. They say that only faith is necessary for salvation. But repentance is commanded by God. It is mentioned 60 times in the New Testament.” ~Evangelist David Cloud, “Repentance In Evangelism
Neither does the Gospel of John preach repentance! John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. As you just read for yourself, the entire purpose for which God authored the Gospel of John is to show humanity how to get to Heaven. If forsaking one's sinful behavior, quitting the old sinful life, and surrender to Christ as supreme “Lord” to follow Him faithfully, were required to get to Heaven, then certainly John would have said so, but he doesn't! Neither did the Apostle Paul mention repentance in his definition of the Gospel, which Paul said in Romans 1:16 and 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 we are saved by, if we simply BELIEVE IT.

The truth is found in John 3:20-21, “For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” Carefully notice that the Bible DOESN'T say: “he that turns from his sins cometh to the light”; but rather, it says: “he that doeth truth cometh to the light.” Repentance is a matter of acknowledging THE TRUTH that you are a guilty sinner, seeing your need for redemption, so that you will turn to the Savior in faith alone to be saved by God's grace.

This is something very different than committing yourself to give up your sinful ways, which NO ONE has ever done. Even the best of God's saints still sin continually (Romans 7:14-25). Sadly, David Cloud is woefully ignorant of the Holy Bible, because he is still unsaved and leans upon his own human understanding, instead of trusting upon the Lord (Proverbs 3:5-7).

If you still need more Biblical evidence to support the truth I just taught you, please read 2nd Timothy 2:25, “In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.” Again, we see here that repentance for salvation is NOT from sinning, but to acknowledge THE TRUTH — repentance to the acknowledging of the truth... Pastor Harry A. Ironside gets repentance 100% correct:
“It is the confession that one is utterly without merit, and if he is ever saved at all it can only be through the merits of our Lord Jesus Christ, 'who gave himself a ransom for all.' Here is firm footing for the soul who realizes that all self-effort is but sinking sand. Christ alone is the Rock of our salvation.” ~Pastor Harry A. Ironside; “Except Ye Repent,” p. 36)
Clearly, Dr. Ironside taught a free grace view of the Gospel. Pastor Ironside correctly recognized repentance as the confession that “one is utterly without merit” and that if one is “ever saved at all it can only be through the merits of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Salvation is without works of self-righteousness. Romans 4:5 plainly teaches that a man's faith is COUNTED for righteousness, i.e., the righteousness of Jesus Christ is imputed to one's heavenly record by faith. Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.

Pastor Ironside further eloquently states:
“Repentance is the recognition of my sinnership — the owning before God that I am as vile as He has declared me to be in His holy Word.” ~Pastor Harry A. Ironside; “Except Ye Repent,” chapter 3)
And also this helpful quote on Bible repentance from Pastor Ironside:
“The Gospel is not a call to repentance, or to amendment of our ways, to make restitution for past sins, or to promise to do better in the future. These things are proper in their place, but they do not constitute the Gospel; for the Gospel is not good advice to be obeyed, it is good news to be believed. Do not make the mistake then of thinking that the Gospel is a call to duty or a call to reformation, a call to better your condition, to behave yourself in a more perfect way than you have been doing in the past …

Nor is the Gospel a demand that you give up the world, that you give up your sins, that you break off bad habits, and try to cultivate good ones. You may do all these things, and yet never believe the Gospel and consequently never be saved at all.” ~Pastor Harry A. Ironside, from the sermon: “What Is The Gospel?
I really love Pastor Ironside. A young 12 year old Harry Ironside heard Pastor Dwight L. Moody (1837-1899) preach in Los Angeles. Two years later Harry fell under Holy Spirit conviction and got saved at age 14. The church building was so packed that there was no more room to enter. So a teenaged lad named Harry Ironside climbed up along the ceiling rafters, and listened intently while looking down upon the meeting. Harry didn't repent to turn away from his sinful ways and commit his life to serve Christ to be saved; but rather, he repented (i.e., changed his mind) unto the Gospel itself, turning from unbelief to belief.

If repentance means “to turn away from your sinful ways, then that means you must start keeping the law (no more stealing, no more adultery, no more dishonoring your parents, no more covetousness, et cetera - Exodus 20:1-17). What saith the Scripture? 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 primary purpose of God's Old Testament law is to show mankind that WE ARE SINNERS  for by the law is the knowledge of sin.”

Thus, God NEVER intended that someone should be required to try to keep the law (i.e., turn away from their sins) to be saved. The very suggestion is wickedness and a false gospel. If to “repent” means to forsake our sinful ways TO BE SAVED, but Jesus already paid for our sins by dying on the cross, then what are we repenting from? Salvation is not a reward for the righteous, it is a gift for the guilty! Turning away from sinful ways would be a work. Faith puts all of the merit where it belongs, on the object of our faith, Jesus and His work.

The true Gospel always points you to CHRIST; a false gospel always points to YOU.

We must stay true to the simplicity of the gospel!! Repentance regarding salvation is a change of mind from unbelief to belief!!! We must earnestly contend for the faith (Jude 1:3).

What About The Repentance Of John The Baptist? 

David Cloud tries to uses John's repentance as evidence that we must turn from sins to be saved today. I would like now to quote Dr. John R. Rice, who perfectly explains the Baptism of John, showing that is was no different than BELIEIVNG on Jesus Christ to be saved, by faith alone:
There are those hyper-dispensationalists who think that John the Baptist preached a different Gospel from Christ when he commanded repentance (Matt. 3:2). But it is the same repentance Jesus commanded in Matthew 4:17, in Luke 13:3 and 5, and the same repentance that Paul preached in Athens that God “now commandeth all men every where to repent” (Acts 17:30 31). 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.

Everyone who genuinely repented under the preaching of John the Baptist put his trust in the Saviour John the Baptist preached, and was regenerated. There is no such thing as being “a disciple of John the Baptist” in any honest sense without being a disciple of Jesus, that is, without trusting Christ for salvation. [emphasis added]

Oh dear friend, that is so beautiful. Please don't miss it! I have heard Missionary David W. Cloud and other false teachers, attempt to portray Dr. Rice as a proponent of Lordship Salvation, saying he taught that people must turn away from a lifestyle of sin to be saved. David Cloud even goes as far as to wickedly pitch Dr. John R. Rice (1895-1980) against his successor Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995). I explain this issue in the preceding article link. Mr. Cloud claims that Curtis Hutson leaves off repentance, thus corrupting the Gospel. Nothing could be further from the truth.

So we see that Dr. Rice is correct, the man who trusts in Christ HAS also repented. It is unfortunate that Dr. Rice chose to use unbiblical terminology, because the Bible NEVER says: “turn from sins to be saved anywhere! No doubt Brother Rice heard other preachers using that junk theology and he adopted it, which is a major problem among nearly all preachers. Please remember, Dr. Rice is not our final authority, the inspired Word of God is!

Beware Of False Prophet David Cloud's Counterfeit Gospel

In the following quote from David Cloud, you will see how he subtly wrests THE TRUTH of God's Word into a lie, teaching that to be saved your life must change (sadly, this is the demonic garbage that is preached by Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College today):
Repentance is not a change of life. Repentance a change of mind about God and sin that results in a change of life. Many who “believe” or “pray the sinner’s prayer” have no intention to change or to allow God to take control of their lives. They are not interested in being a disciple of Christ. They want a ticket to heaven that keeps them out of hell, but they want to continue to live as they please. They want to “believe in Jesus,” but they have no interest in obeying Him. That is not biblical salvation. The sinner must be ready to turn from his false gods, including self-worship, in order to worship and serve the true God (“ye turned to God from idols,” 1 Thessalonians 1:9). ~Evangelist David Cloud, “Repentance In Evangelism
David Cloud is a LIAR!!! According to the preceding quote by Pastor Cloud, you cannot be saved unless you:
  1. have intent to change your life
  2. have intent to become a disciple of Christ
  3. allow God to take control of your life
  4. have intent to stop living in sin
  5. have intent to obey Jesus
NONE OF THAT is Biblical! Dear reader, I triple dog dare you to go back and read our text passage of Scripture from 1st Corinthians 15:1-4, and see if any of the things which Mr. Cloud requires for salvation are mentioned in Paul's Gospel. They are not! That means David Cloud is a liar, an infidel and a false prophet! What saith the Scripture? Proverbs 30:5-6, “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.” David Cloud is a liar for adding words to God's Word.

Pastor Cloud in the article I have shared with you claims that Jesus, Paul and Peter all preached repentance. But THE TRUTH is that David Cloud is taking the words of all those men out of context. Nowhere in the Gospel of John does Jesus tell anyone to repent to be saved. What saith the Scripture? Matthew 21:32, “For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.” Do you see that repentance leads to BELIEVING the Gospel? Jesus is rebuking the self-righteous Pharisees here. Jesus said the Pharisees didn't repent (change their mind) to believe when they heard John's preaching, but THE ADMITTED SINNERS DID!!! Carefully notice that Jesus said the harlots and tax cheats repented to BELIEVE. The Bible never says they turned away from their sinful ways.

David Cloud falsely claims in his horrible article that no believer in the New Testament didn't change:
First, we have plenty of examples of believer's who lived in horrible sin (Demas, Ananias and Sapphira, Peter, the harlots and publicans, the saved man and his girlfriend in 1st Corinthians 5:1-5, the saved man who received no rewards in 1st Corinthians 3:15, Mary Magdalene, et cetera). 

Second, just because saints changed later on as a result of God's indwelling Holy Spirit sanctifying them (John 17:17), has absolutely NOTHING to do with the free gift of getting saved! David Cloud is foolishly front-loading the Gospel, making demands of lost sinners that only a mature believer would posses. Consequently, many people aren't getting saved because they think God requires them to forsake sinful bad habits to be saved, and that blood is all upon David Cloud's incompetent and wicked hands!!!
Pilgrim's Progress author John Bunyan said it best, I humbly think:
“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.” —John Bunyan (1628-1688)
David Cloud is guilty of corrupting the inspired Word of God, casting stumbling blocks before the people, damning their souls to an eternity in the Lake of Fire with his false gospel. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again.

Pastor Cloud is your typical confused and lying false teacher. In one breath he teaches that salvation is a gift, but in the next breath he insists that it will cost you your sins and your life. It simply cannot be both dear friend. Romans 11:6, “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.” David Cloud is caught between grace and works, hellbound in his sincere misunderstanding of the light of the truth of the Gospel.

At the end of his article on repentance, Pastor Cloud writes this heresy:
Many gospel tracts don’t contain a hint of repentance. This is not scriptural soul winning. If Christ and the apostles preached repentance, then we must preach repentance! We need to explain that the individual must be ready to surrender to God, and not give him the false impression that it is possible to be saved without this.” ~Evangelist David Cloud, “Repentance In Evangelism
Well, neither does the Gospel of John contain a hint of repentance. Although we find the word “believe mentioned 88 times in John, not once do we find any mention of repenting, confessing, turning, surrendering or following to be saved; just BELIEVE ON JESUS!!! John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.”

What David Cloud has done is cherry-pick the Scriptures, citing obscure passages of Scripture to bolster his strawman heresy of repentance from sins to be saved, which the Bible does not teach. A good rule to follow when interpreting the Bible is to never use an obscure passage to contradict a clear one. God authored the entire Gospel of John to show the reader how to get to Heaven (John 20:31). Yet, every proponent of Lordship Salvation, like David Cloud, must quote randomly from obscure passages of Scripture in order to find support for their false teachings. This is called wresting (twisting) the Scriptures:
2nd Peter 3:16-17, “As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.”
I am saddened that most clergy (missionaries, evangelists, pastors) and their congregations have succumbed to a false plan of salvation. Jesus plainly warned in John 3:3b, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” The perversion of God's grace called “Lordship Salvation” does not produce the new birth, because it is centered in YOU giving up your sins, surrendering “all” to Christ, and to follow Him in obedience as the “Lord” (Master) of your life. These are all rooted in self-righteousness (Adam's fig leaves and Cain's grain offering), and not the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ through the cross of Calvary. The true Gospel always points you to CHRIST; a false gospel always points to YOU.

David Cloud is a skeptic. He preaches another gospel that cannot save a sinner. Pastor Dwight Moody had it right, all we can do is tell THE TRUTH:
“Skeptics and infidels may say they don't believe in it. It is not our work to make them believe in it; that is the work of the Spirit. Our work is to give them the Word of God.” —Pastor Dwight L. Moody (1837-1899)
One of my favorite free grace preachers today in 2022 is Pastor Ralph Yankee” Arnold:
“If you have to look at your life to prove that you are saved, it proves that you're not!” —Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold; an excellent quote from the awesome YouTube sermon titled, “Why Lordship Salvation is WRONG! | MP3
Amen! A changed life cannot be used as evidence of salvation, because the Devil's crowd cannot imitate it. Can a child of the Devil live a changed life? Yes, of course. There is only one thing that a child of the Devil cannot imitate, and that is being indwelt by God's Holy Spirit. 1st John 3:24, “And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.” That is what the Epistle of 1st John is all about. Many Bible students focus on the wrong thing, and end up misinterpreting the Epistle of 1st John.

Lordship Salvation is Calvinism repackaged; it is a deadly perversion of God's grace that teaches faith alone is insufficient to get to Heaven; but in addition, Lordship Salvation requires that you turn away from your sinful ways, surrender "all" to Christ to obey Him from now on, give control of your life over to God, and to follow Jesus as "Lord" (Master) of your life no matter what the cost. The true Gospel always points you to CHRIST; a false gospel always points to YOU.

Salvation Is A Free Gift That You Take, Giving Nothing In Exchange

Sadly, over 90% of preachers today have succumbed to the Devil's fraud of Calvinism, which is based in self-righteousness. It is a false gospel of partial faith in Christ plus works. I am amazed how many preachers utterly fail to recognize that Calvinism (aka, Lordship Salvation) requires a person to keep the Mosaic law to be saved. Everyone is familiar with God's Ten Commandments (i.e., Thou shalt not murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not covet, Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord in vain, Thou shalt not steal, et cetera). So what do you think it means if you tell a lost sinner to “turn away from your sins” to be saved? You are essentially requiring them to stop breaking God's Ten Commandments to get to Heaven, which is self-righteousness!

The Lordship Salvation camp are so woefully ignorant of the Bible, that when you tell them the truth I just shared with you, they will say retarded things like: “Oh, so you think a person can keep committing murder, committing adultery, and stealing and still go to Heaven?” Do you see their fatal error? They are doing exactly what John Bunyan warned against:
“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.” —John Bunyan (1628-1688)
Getting saved is strictly a legal matter of you coming to God as a guilty sinner, and God the Father pardoning your sins solely on the basis of your trust in the Good News (Gospel) of Christ's death, burial and resurrection. When David Cloud speaks of salvation being “a gift, he speaks with a forked-tongue. In one breath Mr. Cloud speaks the truth that eternal life is a gift from God, but in the next breath he says that YOU must:
  1. have intent to change your life
  2. have intent to become a disciple of Christ
  3. allow God to take control of your life
  4. have intent to stop living in sin
  5. have intent to obey Jesus
How is any of that a gift dear friend? What if (let's say as your parent) I bought you a birthday present, but before I handed it to you I first required that you intend to keep your room clean for the rest of the year, and intend to take a bath every day from now on, and promise to obey your Mom and Dad in every way, and commit not to disobey or doing wrong anymore? Well, first of all, you would know that your so-called birthday gift” is no gift at all, but instead a reward. Secondly, you would feel overwhelmed by all those requirements. It would ruin your birthday and you know it!!! It sure would mine! And thirdly, if you did accept that false gift, you would feel bad, thinking of all the requirements which I had imposed upon you.

Kindly said, this is David Cloud's insane plan of damnation!!! The man is utterly confused, not having enough spiritual discernment to put a difference between justification (getting saved by faith alone), versus sanctification (the believer's growing in grace). I think Pastor M.R. DeHaan said it very well:
"There is a vast difference between coming to Jesus for salvation and coming after Jesus for service. Coming to Christ makes one a believer, while coming after Christ makes one a disciple. All believers are not disciples. To become a believer one accepts the invitation of the Gospel, to be a disciple one obeys the challenge to a life of dedicated service and separation. Salvation comes through the sacrifice of Christ; discipleship comes only by sacrifice of self and surrender to His call for devoted service. Salvation is free, but discipleship involves paying the price of a separated walk. Salvation can't be lost because it depends upon God's faithfulness, but discipleship can be lost because it depends upon our faithfulness." ~M.R. DeHaan, “Hebrews; Zondervan Publishing House, 1959 (p. 117).
And also, Pastor Zane Hodges said this helpful words:
"Eternal life is free. Discipleship is immeasurably hard. The former is attained by faith alone, the latter by a faith that works... the former brings with it the righteousness of God so that a man is 'justified freely by his grace' (Romans 3:24). The latter develops a personal righteousness, based on good deeds, so that a man was also 'justified by works' (James 2:24). The former constituted the believer God's workmanship, the latter fulfilled the wonderful purpose for which he had been created. The former cost man nothing, the latter could cost him everything, including life itself." ~Pastor Zane C. Hodges, “The Hungry Inherit”; Moody Press, Inc., 1972 (pp. 114, 115).
If we simply always keep getting born-again completely separate from sanctification of the believer, then we will never be led astray with the error of the wicked doctrinally. 

Eternal Life is a Free Gift!

Dear friend, if you are truly saved, that is, you are a born-again child of God, then you have the proper Biblical mindset that your salvation rests in nothing more than Jesus' righteousness, which is by faith alone (Philippians 3:9). You need HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS...
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus Christ, my 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,
All other ground is sinking sand.
You have no righteousness to offer God dear friend, and neither do I, which is why the sinless Lamb of God came into the world and went to the cross to be crucified as a common criminal for our sins! Christ died for the ungodly, for heathens like you and me (Romans 5:6-9). You get saved by CEASING from all the garbage David Cloud is telling you to do, and then simple RESTING in Christ's death on the cross, burial and bodily resurrection the third day. That is the blessed GOOD NEWS by which we are saved, for all those who simply BELIEVE IT!

David Cloud originally never mentioned the word “gift in his articles on repentance, until I started writing website articles to expose him, so he updated (enlarged” as he calls it) his articles to include the word gift. What a religious conman! I hope this blog has opened your eyes dear reader, to see that David Cloud is a false teacher who is not saved. I do not rejoice in that, it saddens me. It saddens me that such a brilliant man, who so passionately believes in what he is preaching and doing in India, could be so horribly wrong in his doctrine on salvation. I know that David Cloud is not saved, because he has a wrong mindset regarding the Gospel. He has embellished God's simple plan of salvation, to require a bunch of things that God Himself does not even require. Mr. Cloud is sinfully leaning upon his own understanding, as Proverbs 3:5-7 warns us not to do. Salvation is of the Lord friend, not you!

To be saved, you simply get out of the way, and let God do the saving, all of it. I like what Pastor Jack Hyles said:
Redemption is a work of God the Son. Regeneration is the work of God the Holy Spirit. Justification is the work of God the Father as He declares the sinner righteous in the Son. Conversion then becomes the work of the church as we change the use and purpose of a life.
David Cloud is one of Dr. Hyles' worst enemies, slandering the man continually, falsely accusing him of leaving off repentance. In truth, listen for yourself to what Pastor Jack Hyles believes and taught about Bible repentance, in this helpful sermon titled: “The Goodness Of God leadeth To Repentance.” Dr. Hyles DID believe and teach repentance to be saved, he just didn't agree with the false teaching of David Cloud and others, who pervert repentance to mean something ugly and difficult which God didn't intend. Bible repentance is simply a change of mind, nothing less or more. Repentance is not a separate step from believing to be saved, they are one and the same event. So that the man who BELIEVES has repented. That is, he has changed his mind from unbelief to belief. This is why the word “repent” is never mentioned in the Gospel of John. Anyone who teaches that you must repent of your sins, in addition to trusting Christ as your Savior, is preaching another Gospel.

David Cloud insists that what I am preaching is unbiblical. Cloud says that Jesus, Paul and Peter all preached repentance from sins to be saved, but that is not true at all. Paul and Silas where asked by the Roman jailor: “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” (Acts 16:30b). Here was their simple answer. Acts 16:31, “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” If repenting from sins were such a big factor in getting saved, as David Clouds claims that it is, then why didn't Paul or Silas tell the man to turn away from his sinning?

Furthermore, why didn't Paul mention repentance in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 when he defined the Gospel,” by which WE ARE SAVED Paul said? Clearly, repentance is automatic and is included with BELIEVING the Gospel. Repentance is simply thinking differently than before, so that you will BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST to be saved. Preachers have been debating and fighting over the meaning of repentance and God's plan of salvation for millenniums, but that doesn't mean that they're all correct!

Both Sides May Be, But One Must Be, Wrong!

I once watched a very interesting 12 hour documentary by historian film producer, Ken Burns, on The American Civil War. It is heartbreaking history! I just heard a quote in the film by President Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) that caught my attention:
“In great contests [battles], each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God—both may be, but one must be, wrong—God cannot be for and against the same thing at the same time!” —President Abraham Lincoln
Why did Mr. Lincoln say that? It is because both the Northern Union and the Southern Confederacy claimed to be doing “God's will” in fighting The Civil War (1860-1965). Both President Jefferson Davis in the south, and President Abraham Lincoln in the north, said they were doing “God's will.” As Mr. Lincoln wisely points out, that is IMPOSSIBLE! When two opposing parties, who are warring against each other, claiming to be doing God's will, obviously someone is WRONG! That is why Abraham Lincoln made that powerful statement

Either I am preaching THE TRUTH, and David Cloud is on his way to Hell in his sins; or else David Cloud is correct, and I am damned to Hell in my false understanding of the Gospel. But we assuredly cannot BOTH be correct! Either you can simply come as a guilty sinner and REST in the finished work of Christ, which is what I simply believe and teach; or else you must do as David Cloud preaches:
  1. have intent to change your life
  2. have intent to become a disciple of Christ
  3. allow God to take control of your life
  4. have intent to stop living in sin
  5. have intent to obey Jesus
And only after you've done all that on the list, then put your faith in Christ. Does the latter sound like what Paul wrote in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4? No, not even in the ballpark? Does what David Cloud teach match up with the Gospel of John? No, not on your life. Does what David Cloud teach match the words of Paul and Silas in Acts 16:30-31? Nope, not even close. You dear reader must make the final decisions. I have shown you the inspired Words of God, not my mere human opinions. SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES (John 5:39a).

Getting The Gospel Right And Wrong
 (an excellent sermon by Pastor Dennis Rokser)

Exposing Pastor Joe Sweet's Denial Of OSAS

Galatians 1:8-9, “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.”

Pastor Joe Sweet is an unsaved heretic! In this portion of his sermon, he plainly describes his false gospel as living the Christian life:
“So saving faith looks like this: Patient continuance in doing good, seeking for glory, honor and immortality; Now here is what false faith looks like (this is not real faith)... A false faith looks like this: They are self seeking. They do not obey the truth. They obey unrighteousness. What will come upon them is indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish.” ~Pastor Joe Sweet
HERESY!!! Biblical salvation does not look like “doing good.” The self-righteous man can't fathom a God who offers complete salvation. Its a form of self-worship that says I must be part of the process. As if anything good resides in them to offer up to a holy and righteous God.

Pastor Sweet is a fool. He wrests the Scriptures to his own destruction, mixing sanctification with justification, and in so doing he corrupts the Word of God and casts stumbling blocks before the people. He takes umpteen passages of Scripture out of context. As I mentioned before, God authored the Gospel of John to show humanity ho wot go to Heaven. But Joe Sweet is citing passages from Matthew, Hebrews and all over the place, misinterpreting the Bible.

Joe Sweet is not saved. He falsely claims to have seen a vision of Christ's Second Coming, which he claims led to his new birth in 1978. Yet, the Word of God says God ONLY speaks to us in these last days through His Son (Hebrews 1:1-2). God speaks to us through His only begotten Son, the Word of God (John 1:1-3, 14; Revelation 19:13). RUN from any preacher who claims to have seen "a vision."

Nobody is saved who thinks that God's gift of salvation can be lost by sin. God gave us the Gospel of John to show us the way of salvation, which doesn't mention any of the garbage Joe Sweet is teaching. Instead, he takes obscure passages of Scripture out of context.

Joe even corrupts the book of John. For example: Where Jesus said in John 10:27, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.​" Joe focuses on "they follow me." He ASS-U-MEs that "follow me" is discipleship, but the Bible does not say that. Romans 8:14, "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God." This is what John 10:27-28 means.

Every born-again believer is led by the Holy Spirit. We hear His indwelling voice. That doesn't mean we always obey Him. Nor does it mean that we follow Jesus as His disciple in service. Every child of God knows God's Holy Spirit voice, which is the Spirit of Christ in us (Romans 8:9). So this is one example of how Pastor Joe Sweet corrupts the inspired Word of God, wresting the truth into a lie.

Pastor Joe Sweet foolishly says that nowhere does the Scripture teach: “Once Saved, Always Saved (OSAS). He is so WRONG!!! Dear reader, if you think that God's free gift of salvation can be lost, forfeited or given back, then YOU ARE NOT SAVED!!! A truly born-again believer has the Biblical mindset that Jesus paid it all, and I don't owe Him anything in return.” The Bible teaches in Romans 12:1 that it is the believer's “reasonable service” to yield our body as a living sacrifice to serve God; but it is not mandatory to get to Heaven!
"There is a vast difference between coming to Jesus for salvation and coming after Jesus for service. Coming to Christ makes one a believer, while coming after Christ makes one a disciple. All believers are not disciples. To become a believer one accepts the invitation of the Gospel, to be a disciple one obeys the challenge to a life of dedicated service and separation. Salvation comes through the sacrifice of Christ; discipleship comes only by sacrifice of self and surrender to His call for devoted service. Salvation is free, but discipleship involves paying the price of a separated walk. Salvation can't be lost because it depends upon God's faithfulness, but discipleship can be lost because it depends upon our faithfulness." ~M.R. DeHaan, “Hebrews”; Zondervan Publishing House, 1959 (p. 117)
Dear friend, the Bible adamantly teaches: ONCE SAVED, ALWAYS SAVED!!! Pastor Joe Sweet is a wicked preacher! I have never made a single penny in my 20 years of internet ministry, but Joe has been paid over one million dollars in his ministry career! So he is a hypocrite in his video sermon to accuse OSAS preachers of teaching the truth for money. No, Joe is the one who is making the money (filthy lucre)! OSAS is the very foundation of God's simple plan of salvation, because it is a gift paid for by Jesus' precious blood.

Greedy Companies Want To Center Your Life Around Materialism

1st Timothy 6:5-11, “Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.”

We live in a very wicked materialistic culture in America. I was looking at mandolins the other day, seeing what kind of mandolin I might like to but. Now, I decided to take a few moments to go search the internet for mandolins. I made that choice to just spend about 15 minutes looking at mandolins. Specifically, I typed in the Eastman MD 515 mandolin, which is a superior quality mandolin made in Beijing, China. It costs about $1,200. An equivalent American made mandolin costs between $5,000 to $8,000!

Now, that was over a week ago that I looked at mandolins. Today I was working on my website ministry, reading news about a wicked church in Florida that held a children's drag show. On that Fox News webpage, here is what they dangled in my face today...

Ungodly Greedy Companies Use The Internet
To Buttonhole People With Materialism!

That greatly offends me! It offends me that greedy companies are trying to center my life around materialism. They are trying to force me to think about a mandolin model that I was interested in purchasing. You see, they have spent tens of millions of dollars in the advertising business to analyze people's spending habits. It is called, “Predictive Analytics.” They use this data to predict consumer behavior in order to manipulate people to get their money! It is very unethical to follow, monitor and harass a person to purchase things!!! That is how rotten, greedy, selfish and unethical American society has deteriorated to nowadays.
Proverbs 28:20, “A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.
In the old days, businesses were all closed on Sunday in the United States. In fact, most business owners pulled down their store shades, to prevent people from Sunday window shopping. Our country a century ago was a much better place than it is today, morally and ethically. Sin always undermines a nation! Evil always begets more evil. Our society didn't get into this mess overnight, and it won't be remedied overnight. It took decades of abuse, neglect and wicked decisions to turn our nation into the cesspool of iniquity that it is today.

American society has become so rotten, greedy and unethical that businesses today couldn't care less about taking advantage of people in every way possible. In 2018 when I visited the sunny city of Pensacola in Florida, I was ripped off at the airport by a car rental agency. I cannot remember the name of the company, but they are all the same! I rented a $25 car for three days. After they added taxes, insurance and feeds, I ended up paying $72 per day!!! If that wasn't bad enough, after three days I needed the car for one more day. So I called the phone number on my rental contract. The thuggish woman who answered the phone was an ungodly person. She demanded $288 for the week. But I told her I only needed the car for one more day. She said I had entered into a “weekly rate,” so even if I only needed the car for just one more day, she said it would still cost me $288. Folks, that is the Devil!

I could write for hours about the greed of our rotten American culture today! The Golden Rule is virtually non-existent in American culture today. Matthew 7:12, “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” That is The Golden Rule. We ought to treat other people the same way that we want to be treated. Would you want someone to take advantage of you? No, you wouldn't. God will judge these ungodly company owners (and their complicit employees) in eternity one day, judging them by their own crooked standards (Matthew 7:1-2). Hundreds of millions of dishonest, deceitful and crooked sinners will someday in eternity accuse God of being the same, but He will just be recompensing evil for evil (Romans 12:19-21). Vengeance is the Lord's! If you hurt people in this lifetime, God will hurt you in the next! If you are unsaved, your Hell will become hotter. If you are a child of God, then you had better make things right with those whom you have hurt, or else God will have to do it for them (1st Thessalonians 4:6; 1st Corinthians 11:31; Matthew 7:1-2; Romans 14:10-12).

It utterly disgusts me that hellish greedy companies today are using cookies to track, monitor and harass me everywhere I go on the internet. I've tried turning off my cookies, which prevented other websites from working. It becomes too burdensome, having to individually set your preferences for each and every website you view. These rotten ungodly companies are so greedy that they couldn't care less about being ethical (i.e., doing the right thing), they ONLY care about making money.

Many people have sold their souls to the Devil, and they have also SOLD YOU by selling YOUR PERSONAL DATA for money to the highest bidder! It makes me sick. If I had my way, there would be lengthy prison sentences for these internet tracking greedy unethical criminals. I shouldn't have to create accounts and spend hours upon hours of my time trying to STOP THESE UNGODLY BANDITS from following me with cookies, watching everything I look at and tracking everywhere I go, so they can manipulate my surfing habits and hound me day and night to buy an item that I viewed but chose not to buy, LAST MONTH!!! They are ungodly people, who have ungodly morals, and live ungodly lives!

I really like Jude (the son of Mary and Joseph; and half-brother of Jesus, whose Father is God) in the Bible, who said:
Jude 1:15, “To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
I love that! Four times Jude uses the word “ungodly” to get his point across. These were “ungodly” sinners, with their “ungodly” deeds, which they have “ungodly” committed, attempting to justify their ungodliness with hard speeches!!! Likewise, these “ungodly” companies today, with their “ungodly” greedy exploitative business practices, committing their “ungodly” deeds are of the Devil.

I have come to the sad conclusion that there is nothing that we can do to stop these “ungodly” sinners from selling us into advertising slavery online. If you use the internet, either you will have to spend ridiculous amounts of time continually fighting the stop these “ungodly” sinners from taking over your life online, or you will have to stop using the internet! Of course, there is a third option, which is what I am doing, I just ignore them! I took the time to write this one blog, to expose these “ungodly” reprobates, but they are not worth my time.

As a general rule, I NEVER buy anything from “Click Bait.” These unscrupulous companies and individuals today, who resort to thug tactics to make more filthy lucre, will give account to God one day for sinfully tracking, annoying, hounding and hurting people with their unethical “ungodly” practices rooted in “ungodly” greed. The LOVE OF MONEY is the root of all evil (1st Timothy 6:10-11).

I suffer from stenosis and radiculitis in my neck (since 2004), from an old accident at work, which causes me constant horrible neck pain, which radiates into my arms and legs intermittently, and I feel constant numbness, arms feeling inflated with air, and irritating burning throughout my body's nervous system. Consequently, I don't have much patience with anything, especially “ungodly” people who exploit me online. It is truly pathetic and sad. I would rather be manipulated and exploited by “ungodly” sinners, than to spend all my time trying to stop them, and in the process making my online experience even more unpleasant, and limiting my ability to search the internet without restraints. This is the damage that these “ungodly” people cause, by their “ungodly” deeds, which they have “ungodly” committed. Woe unto the United States!!!

God Judges A Man By His Works, Not His Attitude

Matthew 21:28-32, “But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you. For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.”

I love this wonderful passage of Scripture, which I think of often. I won't retell the whole story, but the basic gist is that a man had two sons. Those two sons had drastically different attitudes. 
vineyard is where grapes were grown, for making wine. The first son, the Bible says, had a very good attitude, He was cooperative and assured his father that he would go work in the family vineyard. But the Bible says he reneged on his promise and didn't go. That reminds me of so many preachers today, who promised God at the beginning of their ministry to tell the truth, but then they drifted away from the truth and became caught between grace and works, preaching another gospel (Galatians 1:6-9).

The second son had a very bad attitude, refusing to go labor in his father's vineyard. The father was no doubt at first disappointed with the second son, because of his lack of responsibility and manhood to do as he had vowed. Yet, this rebellious son with the bad attitude later repented the Bibles says, and he went to work in the father's vineyard.

The reason why I often think about this Scripture passage is because a lot of people think I have a bad attitude. The same was true of the Apostle Paul. 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. Paul often came across as rude to people. Paul spoke his mind, not biting his tongue. I remember one day while sitting in chapel at Hyles-Anderson College, that Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) said to us: “There are more opinions per square foot at Hyles-Anderson College than anywhere else in the world.” Dr. Hyles was absolutely right! You get a bunch of Independent Fundamental Baptists together in one big room and you're going to have a lot of OPINIONS!

Perhaps one of the best examples of this is Pastor Steven L. Anderson of the Faith Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona. I love, admire and support Brother Anderson as a fellow truth-teller, soulwinner and friend of the ministry. America could be saved if we had enough pastors like Steven Anderson. Although I disagree with several of his doctrinal positions, I don't know of a more fervent soulwinner and sincere man. Pastor Anderson is I call “real people.”

Of these two sons in our text passage, in the end the father was displeased with the son with the good attitude, because he didn't get the job done. The Bible teaches in 1st Samuel 16:7, “But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart. Most people look at Steven Anderson's seemingly bad attitude and dislike him. Pastor Anderson is probably among the 50 most hated people in the world today! But if you are a child of God, and have good spiritual discernment, then you see beyond Brother Anderson's rough edges and faults as I do, and you see a sincere man of God with a passion for soulwinning.

Likewise, I am very outspoken in my blogs and website articles on social media, saying it like it is, not holding back, a truth-teller. I can be sharp at times with my words. God knows that it is never my intention to hurt people's feelings or be hurtful; but rather, to get people to think and change by God's Holy Spirit power. I cannot change people, I can only be “A VOICE for the Lord, trying to appeal to my audience's better sense of reasoning and judgment. Alex Jones is correct: “The is a war on for your mind!” The Devil is continually roaming about, seeking those whom he may devour (1st Peter 5:8). “I Am A Voice” (MP3 sermon by Dr. Jack Hyles). We need more voices!!!

I have made many enemies over the past 20 years of website ministry. Sadly, most of my enemies are incompetent foolish pastors, those who have dropped the ball for God. The average Baptist pastor today is an ignoramus! In 2018, a shipment of 17,000 New International Version (NIV) Bibles were freely sent to Cuba, and REJECTED!  Fidel Castor died in 2016. His brother became the president of Cuba and some things started to change, moving toward freedom. For the first time in over 50 years, during which time the Holy Bible was forbidden and banned in Cuba, the government allowed Bibles to be brought into the country. I was amazed when I learned that the Cuban government had the spiritual wisdom to reject the Devil's corrupt Bible perversions. Cuba said, “We only want King James Bibles.”

The sad thing about all this is that of the estimated 350,000 churches in the United States today, I dare say 345,000 of those churches have the same spiritual integrity as the Cuban government does!!! Any pastor who sanctions more than one English Bible version is of the Devil. God only authored ONE HOLY BOOK, so there can only be ONE true Bible in any particular language. The following disturbing comparison of Zachariah 13:6 from various Bible revisions, speaks 1,000 words to vindicate what I am preaching...

The ugly truth is that if you want to punish your own new Bible in the English language, and more people all the time are wanting to do just that, by U.S. Copyright law your new work must contain substantial creative changes from all pre-existing works! That is the ugly truth! So any time a new Bible is published in the English language, you know that it is going to contain some drastically creative, bizarre and new corruptions to the Holy Scripture! Satan entered into the Bible publishing business in Genesis 3:1b, “Yea, hath God said?”

One of the hardest challenges for me over the years, has been dealing with rejection of my website ministry from church pastors. God is using my humble labors to get people saved, change lives and fill up God's house. Luke 14:23, “And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.And yet these wicked shallow pastors in the Pensacola Christian College camp, and unsaved infidels in the Bob Jones University camp, criticize my labors. But I know that GOD IS WITH ME, making me and God a majority, for one reason and one reason only—I AM PREACHING 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.”

The average Baptist pastor today just wants to play church, remain in his cushy comfort zone, never go door-to-door soulwinning, coddle his church clique, and criticize truth-tellers like me for making trouble. You'd be surprised today how many pastors will get upset with you for publicly saying that Lordship Salvation is of the Devil. They consider that a controversy, knowing that many churches believe that. I was disgusted when I heard Evangelist Tom Williams years ago defend Lordship Salvation. Do you know why he does that? It is because he is a traveling evangelist, whose financial income depends on invites to speak at churches, and 90% of churches today are caught up in that Satanic Lordship Salvation mess! The ungodly Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) alone has 45,000 corrupt member churches!!!

Likewise, Evangelist Jack Van Impe is corrupt! Most of his financial income comes from ignorant Roman Catholics who watch him on television. This compelled Jack Van Impe to praise the Satanic Pope Paul John II, calling him: “The greatest spiritual leader of the twentieth century!” No, the Pope is the Vicar of Hell. Truly, the LOVE OF MONEY is the root of all evil (1st Timothy 6:10). Jack Van Impe further heretically stated:
“You Catholic people, listen to your priests... Thank God for these Catholic leaders.” —Jack Van Impe

“The Catholic Doctrines Are Right On” —Jack Van Impe
That is what the love of money does to corrupt preachers folks!!! The average pastor today is afraid to speak evil of Roman Catholicism to his congregation, lest the ungodly Pulpit Committee fire him! It will be a cold day in Hell before I ever allow any Pulpit Committee to tell me what I can or cannot preach! I will preach THE TRUTH, expose bad pastors, and harelip every dog in the county if need be! God deliver us from these wimpy pastors today who refuse to take a Biblical stand against sin, refuse to organize door-to-door church soulwinning, refuse to love everyone unconditionally and cannot preach their way out of a wet paper bag!

Most pastors that I have met have mental issues. Seriously! When you attend a new church and confide in the senior pastor, that as a 54-year-old-man you hope to find a wife at church, and that pastor scolds you for coming to church to find a wife (as Pastor Jeff Redlin cruelly did me at Pensacola Christian College's Campus Church), that pastor needs to go see a psychiatrist. No normal pastor would berate someone for hoping to remarry, who has been alone and divorced for 15 years! Today's pastors are hateful, cruel and full of hypocrisy. When you confront them with these truths, they dismiss it as merely part of being human.

Pastor Jeff Redlin on the surface appears to have a good attitude, to most people in his congregation; but in reality he couldn't care less about hurting people, and didn't go out to work in his Father's vineyard. Driving hurting sinners away from church is not working in God's vineyard. Jeremiah 12:10, “Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.”

So Pastor Redlin's attitude superficially appears good, but then he doesn't get the job done for God. I left Campus Church after the summer of 2021 wounded, hurt and frustrated, knowing that I wasn't wanted there by their ungodly rotten pastor. Jeff Redlin failed as a pastor to be the servant God intended for him to be. That is what is wrong with churches today, we have a bunch of bullies for pastors who don't truly know what it means to be “a servant.” Pastor Redlin gets paid well over $100,000 a year, that is not a servant.

In sharp contrast, I haven't been paid nor received one single penny since I began my website ministry in 2002, in which I have invested over 60,000 hours of prayerful diligent labour day and night for Jesus Christ. To God be the glory, great things He is doing! These wicked lazy pastors today aren't worthy to shine my shoes, humbly said; yet they slander, criticize and foolishly think that their work is more important than mine, as they sinfully bid Godspeed to the Lordship Salvation cult at Bob Jones University, and I relentlessly EXPOSE THEM!!!

This story of the two sons that Jesus told is a perfect illustration of myself as a humbly servant of God, with my humble small website ministry; versus the pompous arrogant pastors who criticize, laugh in scorn and belittled my labors for Christ online, with their increasing shallow works. They all look down on me as having a bad attitude, of being a troublemaker; and yet in reality, in God's sight, they are the ones who have the bad attitude, and are dropping the ball for God, failing to contend for the faith (Jude 1:3), failing to expose false prophets (Titus 1:9-14), failing to expose the Devil's false Bibles (Romans 1:25), et cetera! In fact, I know that God is pleased with me for preaching THE TRUTH, for being set for the defense of the Gospel of free grace, for refusing to buckle and go along with heresy, falsehoods and apostasy.

So let the heathen pastors continue to laugh, scorn, reject and despise my faithful website ministry and sound Bible preaching, because the day is coming when God will vindicate my preaching (Romans 3:4), and those wicked pastors will be very sorry (Galatians 6:7; Romans 16:17-18; Galatians 1:6-9; Matthew 12:36; Proverbs 24:12). Jesus is precious!!!
