Apostate Churches

By David J. Stewart | May 2017

Revelation 3:1, “And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.”

       One word can describe America's churches today... APOSTATE!!! Apostasy means turning away from God. Our nation has forsaken the Word of God, we have forsaken the right way. It is amazing how much the United States has deteriorated in just a half-century. No nation can survive apostasy! A nation can survive attacks from without, but no country can survive subversion by its fools from within! We are witnessing the self-destruction of America!!!

Nothing bears witness to this sad fact than the deterioration of our nation's churches. In March of 2017, a shocking 20,562 Presbyterian ministers in 10,083 churches approved of homosexual marriages! That is wickedness and sick!!! God created a male and female, not two males, not two females! If God had, there could have been any offspring and the world couldn't exist! As America strays away from the God of the King James Bible, our nation is going insane, descending into every form of sin and wickedness!!! Entertainment has replaced the church! The power of public speaking has replaced the power of the Holy Spirit. Ministry zeal without a love for the truth is like owning a racing car without a passion for performance. What good is a gun without ammunition?

“You'd be shocked if you knew, how the versions of the Bible that are coming out, which are so unnecessary and not even Bible. You'd be shocked if you knew what they're doing to cause Christian people to feel subconsciously unstable. You'd be shocked if you knew what it's doing to the nervous system of our people! All these Bibles!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, MP3 sermon, “Don't Chase The Pendulum.”

It was Evangelist Billy Sunday (1862-1935) who warned us 100-years ago that the Church was going apostate...

Billy Sunday had no idea how much of a prophet he was! Brother Sunday was right—the Church is growing rich, lagging behind and going backwards!!! I was listening recently to some old-fashioned, red-hot, Christ-honoring, Bible-preaching by Evangelist Phil Kidd.

There are many pastors who are respectable in their particular ecumenical circles, good men of character, excellent orators, decent men, and likable in personality; yet they are not doing their duty when they are silent about eternal punishment and the fires of Hell. Effectively, a Baptist pastor who doesn't mention “Hell” from the pulpit is no better than a Seventh-Day Adventist (SDA's) minister who doesn't believe in eternal punishment in a fiery Hell. SDA's teach that the unsaved will be annihilated, ceasing to be conscious for all eternity. That is not what the holy Bible teaches. God says in His Word that Hell is a literal PLACE, that burns with literal FIRE, and lasts literally for all ETERNITY. The Bible teaches that Hell lasts forever! By the way, there is not a more dangerous cult than Seventh-Day Adventism, and they detest Baptists. SDA think that everyone who worships on Sunday are antichrists.

Attend the average church these days and you can expect to hear a sermonette from some Caspar Milquetoast minister who couldn't preach his way out of a wet paper-bag. It's sad and a shame. The great need of the hour is PREACHING PREACHERS!!! I did not write this article to be unkind. Nor am I trying to convince Christian believers to quit their churches. MAKE YOUR CHURCH BETTER! Pray for your pastor and ask God to work in his heart. Remember, there are no perfect pastors, Christians or churches. I'm not trying to stir-up trouble; but rather, I'm trying to prepare believers for the time when you must stand face-to-face with your dear Savior. God didn't save you to BE GOOD, He saved you to DO GOOD. What are you doing for God?

I will say this though... If your church is teaching the heresy of Lordship Salvation, or are using the modern corrupted Bible versions, GET OUT IMMEDIATELY!!! You are being poisoned with the satanic new Bible versions. These are the two deal-breakers! I wouldn't step foot into any church that doesn't use ONLY the trustworthy King James Bible!!! Nor would I stay 5 minutes in any hellhole so-called “church” that teaches a person must turn away from sinful living as a requirement to be saved. That is not what repentance means in the Bible. Other false prophets teach that you're not saved unless your life has changed, which is another Gospel (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4).

Here is an excellent quote from the mighty man of God, Pastor Lee Roberson (1909-2007), concerning eternal punishment . . .

“Somebody says, 'The thought of Hell is so horrible.' Well, my friend, so is cancer, so is tuberculosis, so is the grave. Someone said, 'I believe sin ought to be punished, but not for eternity.' That's your view, not God's.

Again another says, 'I don't believe in the wrath of God.' Then you don't believe your Bible. The Bible says the wrath of God abideth on the one who doesn't believe in Jesus Christ. He is lost forever.

Now, these things come to us out of the Word of God. The teaching of eternal punishment should give us a hatred for sin. We ought to hate sin. The reason we have changed so much in this day in all of our churches is that we are not hearing much on this subject. Therefore, we endorse sin. We engage in sin. We camouflage the sin in our lives and allow things to go by, instead of hating sin as God wants us to hate sin . . .

The teaching of eternal punishment should give us a passion for the souls of men.” [emphasis added]

America's Churches Are Ignorantly Supporting The New World Order

A sure sign of death in our churches today is the Christian evangelical support of Godless U.S. Presidents who are known occult members, homosexuals, liars, fraudsters, boozers, drug-traffickers, draft-dodgers, traitors, adulterers and deceivers. Why Do America's Churches Support Tyranny? The following true words are from Dr. Texe Marrs' excellent book, “CONSPIRACY WORLD: A TRUTHTELLER'S COMPENDIUM OF EYE-OPENING REVELATIONS AND FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE” ...

Many insiders snicker and laugh ha, ha, ha, at brain-dead Christian evangelicals who actually believe that George W. [Bush] is a God-fearing heterosexual, Born-again Christian. As David Kuo, former top White House adviser in the Bush Administration, reveals in his new book, “Tempting Fate,” the Bush White House team sneers and jokes about the evangelicals so easily deceived by the President. Kuo presents evidence that the Bush people view Christian evangelical leaders and their flocks as ridiculous, silly, nuts, even insane. To the Bush people, Christianity is a farce and Christians are easily duped idiots.

SOURCE: Dr. Texe Marrs, “CONSPIRACY WORLD: A TRUTHTELLER'S COMPENDIUM OF EYE-OPENING REVELATIONS AND FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE” (Volume 1, Page 147; copyright 2010).

The reason why most Christian evangelicals are so easily deceived is because they blindly follow an apostate pastor, instead of seeking the truth for themselves. Most pastors share the woeful and harmful arrogance of doctors. You can't tell them anything and they greatly resent being directed on how to do their job. They literally think they know-it-all compared to those who trust them. My advice is to do your own homework and research the New World Order. Listen to Infowars.com and other alternative news sources. Good luck finding any Christian news sources that expose the New World Order (NWO), which includes NWO stooges like Billy Graham, Joel Osteen and Rick Warren. If your church supports these apostates, your church is dead!

Is the occult in your church? The whole reason why the Southern Baptist Convention is dead is because 37% of the U.S. Freemasonry membership are Southern Baptists. In Freemasonry, lodges strictly prohibit praying “in Jesus' name.” Freemasonry is a sex-perverted phallic-worshipping, Luciferian-worshipping cult!

AUTOPSY: An examination and dissection of a dead body to determine cause of death or the changes produced by disease.

What is causing our churches to die? There are many things that are ruining our churches: corrupt Bible versions like the New International Version (NIV), ecumenism which seeks to unite by error instead of dividing over truth, hen-pecked ministers who allow committees to censor their preaching, covetous pastors who prioritize financial security over speaking the truth, worldliness in the Church, the satanic doctrine of Zionism which worships the Jews and Israel, backslidden pastors who don't teach Biblical doctrine, pastors who prioritize music programs over preaching the Word of God, Christian schools elevated above the church, soul-winning is not taught and done, feminism in our churches which influences women to wear pants and divorce, formalism, failure to pray and rely upon the Holy Spirit to build the Church, et cetera.

Our churches are dying because our pastors are dying! Ministers are dime-a-dozen these days, but genuine men of God who PREACH are hard to find. God give us some John the Baptists, Billy Sundays and Jack Hyles' who were willing to fight until the utmost for their cause!

“It is not persecution of the church in China that I fear. The church has always been able to weather persecution. My fear is love of money in the church.” —Chinese pastor

Is Your Church Growing In Grace Or Swelling From Rot?

Today I listened to Brother Kidd's awesome MP3 sermon titled, IN THE LAST DAYS.” In the preceding sermon, Brother Kidd shares that he had begun working as a mortician in 1974. Dr. Kidd explains that anything dead “swells” (as it rots from the inside out). He points out that most of our large churches today aren't growing; but rather, they are rotting, swelling, dead corpses! That's exactly what Billy Sunday warned us about! Our churches have rigor mortis, rotting from the inside out!

In the old days of America, Church was the most important thing, and everyone centered their life around the Church. But today church is only a part of what we do, a side-attraction, take-it-or-leave-it, a novelty. Our Bible-preaching churches are dying. The parking-lots are empty. Sadly, the rotting corpses of DEAD churches are swelling, packing the house with apostates. Big mega-churches like Hillsong are nothing but worldly Rock music concerts. There is no preaching. Some sad excuse for a minister gets up, looking like Shirley Temple, delivering his sermonette that has no substance, nothing for the listener to grab onto, a dead message of love without hate, truth without exposing heresy, unity without separation, and cooperation without standards.

Our Mixed Up Fundamental Christianity (MP3 sermon by Pastor Jack Hyles)

King James Bible Inspiration (MP3 sermon by Pastor David Baker)

Increasing attendance is not a sign of spiritual growth in a church. Is your church growing or swelling? Today's churches are filled with liberals who don't believe that the Bible is the Word of God. They claim that only the originals are inspired and without error. They criticize the holy King James Bible, while praising the unholy homosexual-produced New International Version (NIV). Our churches are filled with corruption, a bunch of shameful liberals who won't take a stand or preach against sin. Today's churches are mere social clubs. These monstrosities are swelling! The great need of the hour is PREACHING PREACHERS! God save us from these retarded inter-denominational churches with “his” and “her” pastors.

There's nothing worse than hearing a pastor say that he doesn't know how to preach! Well learn! Get mad about something! Blurt it out if you have to, stutter it if you must, BUT PREACH!!! Good night man, people need to hear the truth! Our church congregations are starving! I spoke with a church deacon about his salvation and could tell he had issues with it. I expounded him with the Scriptures and my own personal testimony. He was delighted and asked, “Why don't they teach those things from the pulpit?” The sad truth is that church leaders just don't care. Pastors find their comfort zone and live there, failing to discern the needs of their congregation. You can't just preach your favorite part of the Bible and neglect the rest of God's Word.

A Dead Church Has A Dead Pastor

A genuine man of God will NOT “go along to get along” in an apostate situation. He will not preach without proclaiming the truth! Too many pastors know the truth, but are afraid to speak it for fear of losing financial support. Perhaps more people have gone to Hell, and churches have died, because of the love of money (or fear of losing it, which effectively has the same consequences on a ministry) than anything else.

Jesus asked the apostle Peter three times if he loved (Greek: agape) Him. Three times Peter answered “Yes, I do love (Greek: phileo) You.” Jesus was asking if Peter unconditionally loved Him, but Peter kept responding that he was fond of the Lord. John 21:17, “He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.” Do you think that the Lord wants Christian leaders today in 2014 to continue feeding His sheep (i.e., believers in the faith)? Yes, yes, yes, of course! This is part of The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20), that is, to mentor new converts in the Lord, literally indoctrinating them with the things of Jesus Christ.

So why aren't most pastors feeding the Lord's flock. I oftentimes refer to a pastor's congregation as his “flock,” but in actuality IT IS THE LORD'S FLOCK if they are born-again Christians. Pastors have a duty to feed God's children, pointing them continually to the Word of God. The greatest thing that a pastor can ever do for his congregation is to continually uplift the deity of Jesus Christ and the inspiration of the King James Bible. If your people aren't leaving church with a burning desire to get into the holy Bible, then you aren't uplifting the Word of God as you should. Young people should be taught to sing Bible verse songs. The King James Bible should be quoted, preached, memorized, and the importance of abiding in the Word should continually be emphasized (John 15:1-5). In a dead church, the Word of God is passively present, but it is not praised and practiced as it should. Do you realize Psalms 138:2 says that God magnifies His Word above all His name? It's true!

And by the way, again, a sure sign of a dead church is that you'll never hear any preaching about Hell. It is a pastor's duty to warn his flock about the literal place called Hell, that burns with literal fire, and lasts for a literal eternity. It is every minister's duty to teach his flock to warn others that Hell burns with fire. If you truly love others, and Jesus Christ above all else, then you will be compelled to preach the truth about Hell. All Christ-rejecting sinners will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire being punished by God (2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9; Revelation 20:11-15; 21:8). Do we really believe in a literal, burning, Hell? You wouldn't think so from visiting most churches today. A USA TODAY article reveals that only 59% of Americans believe in a literal Hell; even worse, much worse, two large groups of pastors at a recent BEESON PASTOR'S SCHOOL acknowledged that NOT ONE OF THEM had preached a sermon on Hell to their congregations. It is a shame and a sin!!! Every Christian believer ought to warn lost sinners of the wrath to come in Hell (Romans 5:9). Luke 3:7b, “O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?”

The Bible has more to say about Hell than Heaven; yet ironically, according to the USA TODAY poll I just shared with you, 74% of Americans believe in Heaven, but only 59% believe in Hell. You can choose to believe that 2 + 2 = 5 if you want, but you'd be WRONG! There is a literal place called Hell that burns with fire and brimstone, where all Christ-rejecting sinners who die in their unbelief will spend eternity in loneliness, regret, weeping, pain and torment. Is that where you want to spend eternity? Shame on today's pastors who remain eerily silent on the matter of Hell. This article is meant to afflict the comfortable. You proud pastors remain silent, wanting to avoid offending anyone, letting the unsaved world go to Hell forever. Oh, how the tears will flow at The Judgment Seat Of Christ, when believers are held accountable, facing the terror of the Lord (2nd Corinthians 5:11).

Christian men are always preaching... by holy sermons in the pulpit, and by holy lives out of it!

The Pulpit Of This Day Is Weak In Praying

You'll seldom hear mention of the need for Holy Spirit power in today's apostate churches. It appears that most churches have abandoned the Biblical truth of the reality, need and importance of the power of the Holy Spirit in all that we do. Jesus plainly said in John 15:5 that without Him “YE CAN DO NOTHING”! You may accomplish great things in the eyes of man and the world, but it won't matter one hill of beans to Heaven's view unless the Holy Spirit is working THROUGH YOU!!! (Galatians 2:20; Zechariah 4:6). Please read the excellent life-changing book by Dr. Jack Hyles titled, MEET THE HOLY SPIRIT

The following excellent words are by E.M. Bounds from his timeless book, “POWER THROUGH PRAYER” ...

The sermon cannot rise in its life-giving forces above the man. Dead men give out dead sermons, and dead sermons kill. Everything depends on the spiritual character of the preacher. ...

The preacher's sharpest and strongest preaching should be to himself. His most difficult, delicate, laborious, and thorough work must be with himself. The training of the twelve was the great, difficult, and enduring work of Christ. Preachers are not sermon makers, but men makers and saint makers, and he only is well-trained for this business who has made himself a man and a saint. It is not great talents nor great learning nor great preachers that God needs, but men great in holiness, great in faith, great in love, great in fidelity, great for God -- men always preaching by holy sermons in the pulpit, by holy lives out of it. These can mold a generation for God.

After this order, the early Christians were formed. Men they were of solid mold, preachers after the heavenly type -- heroic, stalwart, soldierly, saintly. Preaching with them meant self-denying, self-crucifying, serious, toilsome, martyr business. They applied themselves to it in a way that told on their generation, and formed in its womb a generation yet unborn for God. The preaching man is to be the praying man. Prayer is the preacher's mightiest weapon. An almighty force in itself, it gives life and force to all.

The real sermon is made in the closet. The man -- God's man -- is made in the closet. His life and his profoundest convictions were born in his secret communion with God. The burdened and tearful agony of his spirit, his weightiest and sweetest messages were got when alone with God. Prayer makes the man; prayer makes the preacher; prayer makes the pastor.

The pulpit of this day is weak in praying. The pride of learning is against the dependent humility of prayer. Prayer is with the pulpit too often only official -- a performance for the routine of service. Prayer is not to the modern pulpit the mighty force it was in Paul's life or Paul's ministry. Every preacher who does not make prayer a mighty factor in his own life and ministry is weak as a factor in God's work and is powerless to project God's cause in this world.

Power Through Prayer text by E.M. Bounds

What a great truth! ... “Prayer makes the man; prayer makes the preacher; prayer makes the pastor.”

We Are Soldiers For Christ, And Soldiers Fight!

A preacher should preach and teach about all spiritual subjects, including the New World Order. If you don't, your church congregation will be spiritually hungry, frustrated, confused and dead. It seems that today's churches are more interested in paint ball games, fireworks, jet skis and big inflatable toys than they are indoctrinating our youth with the inerrant, perfect, infallible, preserved, inspired, Words of God. We have that Book in the KING JAMES BIBLE!!! The last I checked, the Bible teaches that WE ARE AT WAR AS SOLDIERS FOR CHRIST. 2nd Timothy 2:3, “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.”

Soldiers fight. That's what they are trained to do. How are we training our youth today? I see Independent Baptist churches where the teenagers are frustrated, starving for something real, hungry for a challenge. Teenagers love to have the truth! Youth are extremely impressionable and vulnerable to either good and evil. Tragically, our youth are surrounded by evil, perversion and falsehoods everywhere they turn. I read something many years ago that stuck in my mind, from the book “POWER THROUGH PRAYER” by E. M. Bounds, that is, “A church congregation cannot rise above the spirituality of the clergy.”

IN THE LAST DAYS (MP3 sermon by Evangelist Phil Kidd)

Let's continue with an autopsy of a dead church. We find that cantatas and orchestras replace Bible-preaching. What a sad thing! I'll never understand why any so-called “man of God,” who is responsible for a church congregation, will prioritize a singing cantata over the preaching of God's Word. As a young boy, Dr. Jack Hyles (1926-2001) recalls the only time that his unsaved father came to church. Instead of preaching, the church had a Christmas cantata. No Gospel was preached. In 1950 Jack Hyles' father died in his sins and went to Hell. Pastor Hyles vowed to God that he would NEVER fail to give an invitation to receive Jesus Christ at any public church service. You never know who's listening.

"The world's greatest need is preaching preachers. The Gospel is our emancipation proclamation: let's take it to the slaves of sin." —Evangelist Lester Roloff

An autopsy of a dead church reveals cancelled church services on Christmas. They cancel the evening service for New Years Eve. They also cancel church for Easter. In fact, the dead church cancels church on a whim, removing the church services on all holidays, music specials and school functions. Of course, preaching is cancelled for the Lord's Supper. The dead church functions as a Christian school with a church, instead of a church with a Christian school. I agree with Dr. Hyles... I'd rather have one church than seven Christian schools! Jesus promised divine perpetuity to THE CHURCH, not to the Christian school (Matthew 16:18). And by the way, Jesus is the only FOUNDATION (1st Corinthians 3:11), not Peter, upon which the Church is built. So that means the Roman Catholic Church is of the Devil, because they choose Peter as their foundation instead of Jesus Christ. Peter is nothing!!!

When a church turns against truth, God leaves that church and it is DEAD. It becomes nothing but a cemetery. Today's preacher's seminaries are actually preacher's cemeteries! Jude called them “TWICE DEAD, PLUCKED UP BY THE ROOTS”!!! Jude 1:12, “These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots.” You can run over a plant with a mower and it'll grow again, but once you pluck up the roots it won't grow back. There are churches springing up all over the place today, but they are dead, having no roots. The Holy Spirit is not present. The Word of God is not accurately taught. Another Jesus, another spirit and another gospel are taught (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4). Jude 16 said these apostates would “speak swelling words.” Joel Osteen's swelling words are hindering the cause of Christ.

“The most dangerous revolutions are not those which tear down everything, and cause the streets to run with blood, but those which leave everything standing, while cunningly emptying it of any significance.” —Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855)

Does not the preceding quote describe our churches today? Today's milquetoast preaching lacks any real substance. There's hardly anything to grab onto.

Cotton Candy Religion (it's big and beautiful until you sink your teeth into it, then it dissolves into nothing!)

Formalism, Worldliness And No Preaching

A sure sign of a dead church is formalism. The Roman Catholic Church is not a true church at all; but rather, a satanic religious cult. Mormonism is a demonic sex-perverted cult, which worships the same god as Freemasonry, that is, Lucifer. Freemasons are phallic-worshippers, evidenced by the Washington Monument (obelisk). Jehovah's Witnesses are a religious cult from Hell. These are not true Biblical churches patterned after the churches in the New Testament. Formalism attempts to worship God with rituals, manmade traditions and ceremonies. Jesus told the Samaritan woman in John 4:24 that God the Father desires to be worshipped in spirit and in truth. The Word of God is truth (John 17:17). Every born-again Christian has the Holy Spirit of God living in their body (Romans 8:9).

I've visited numerous Roman Catholic church services, and I could feel the deadness. The Holy Spirit was not present, except in my body as a true believer. The people around me were chanting a bunch of dead prayers which they had memorized. In sharp contrast, we pray to God as true believers in spirit from our soul, and not with vain repetitions as Catholics do. Chanting some dead prayer from a so-called “prayer book” is not genuine prayer. An autopsy of a dead church reveals vain repetitions, religious chants and lifeless memorized prayers from a book. God desires fresh prayers from our living heart, and not some religious mumbo-jumbo from a manmade catechism or other manmade book.

You'll never hear any Bible-preaching in a Catholic church! Instead, they teach the manmade traditions of the Vatican. There are no song books in the pews of a Catholic church. There are no Bibles in the pews. It's all canned religion. What a dead place! Like KFC restaurant, no one does religion like the Catholic Church. From the cradle-to-the-casket, Roman Catholicism offers a complete religious package for you, but then the judgment (Hebrews 9:27). Religion is a road to Hell. Religion wants to fit us with glasses, but the Lord wants to open our eyes. Religion is man trying to reach God through human effort, but Christianity is God trying to reach man through the sacrifice on the cross of His only begotten Son Jesus Christ. Salvation is NOT found in any religion; but rather, in a person—the Lord Jesus Christ! Christ died, that's history; Christ died for me, that's salvation!

Conformity and culture are paths to destruction. Praise God for the uncouth, offensive ruggedness, manly roughness of John the Baptist. Evangelist Billy Sunday used to throw chairs, climb on top of his pulpit, swing his fists in the air at the Devil and run back and forth across the platform. How does that compare today to the stuff-shirt, dry, formalistic, deadbeat minister who puts his audience to sleep. BORING!!! I've almost got up and walked out on some dry ministers. I heard a dry minister speak last year. He was boring and unable to get to any kind of point. The kids were playing video games. Mom was Googling.

The man sure didn't know anything about preaching! Brother, you might not like my preaching if I came to your church, but you wouldn't fall asleep I guarantee you!!! I'd speak from my heart, no need for a performance. There's nothing worse than a preacher who's putting on a performance. People can quickly discern if a man is just trying to impress the audience, or if he truly has something important to say that he believes in. I never try to impress anyone with my articles (you can tell I'm sure...lol). If I have something to say, I SAY IT!!! No man of God who is unwilling to speak the truth has any right standing behind any pulpit! I like what General George Patton said: “Either lead me, follow me, or get out of my way!”

Let's just be honest, the average pastor is afraid to take a stand, fearful of losing members. The irony is that the parking lot is empty at many of these churches. You can literally feel when a church congregation is starving for doctrine, hungry for preaching and dying for truth. Many churches preach a theme of love, love, love, but you'll never hear a word against sin, or about the awfulness of Hell, or about false Bibles, or about the New World Order, or about modesty, et cetera. Why should people come to church if there's nothing worth hearing? Many people still come, but they are as frustrated as can be. A happy church is a spiritually fed church. A sad church is a doctrinally starving church.
 

The Sin Of Being Lukewarm!

If the shoe fits, wear it! Nearly every church today is lukewarm. God hates fence-straddling. The only thing you hit when you drive in the middle-of-the-road are skunks! I've written this article with a humble heart and the sincere prayer for God to use this article for His glory. My words mean nothing as they enter your mind, unless the Holy Spirit of God convicts your heart and changes you from within. I'm just trying to prepare you for the time when you must meet your Savior face-to-face, when you look into Jesus' eyes and have to give account for your life (Romans 14:10-12; 2nd Corinthians 5:9-11; 1st Thessalonians 4:6; James 4:12; Matthew 12:36; Proverbs 24:12). God didn't save us to BE GOOD, He saved us to DO GOOD. What are you doing for God?

My desire is not to aggravate or make anyone upset; but rather, to preach the truth about the apostate condition of today's churches, particularly our Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches (the last remaining bastion of the New Testament Church as far as I'm concerned). Show me a Methodist church with a Bus Ministry! Show me a Presbyterian church that goes soul-winning from door-to-door (Acts 20:20)! Our churches nowadays are embracing the queer agenda. Lesbians are being ordained and called to pastor churches. It is sinful. Many churches are adopting neutral positions on homosexual rights and same-sex marriage. This is certainly a symptom of a dead church body. Every born-again Christian ought to kindly, lovingly, but firmly take a stand against the sin of homosexuality in the name of Jesus! I'm not saying that we should be gay-bashers, God forbid. I'm simply saying that we should always side with the Scriptures! There is no controversy if you believe the Bible. I am on the Lord's side in all matters!

If evangelical Christians don't uphold the truth of the Word of God, then assuredly no one else is going to do it. The world is literally dying for something real. Our churches today are so phony, dead and dried-up that it makes God vomit. This is what the Lord said in Revelation 3:15-16, “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.”


Proverbs 14:34, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”

Mark 1:15: “...repent ye, and believe the gospel.”

"Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life:
and they are they which testify of me."
—John 5:39


"In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power." —2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9
