The Problem Of Insensitive Christians Who Don't Care
by David J. Stewart | May 2020
Revelation 3:15-17, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:”
I get so frustrated by fellow professed Christians who are insensitive. The shameful Harvest Baptist Church comes to mind. They are indifferent toward many things. The church functions like a social club, selectively picking and choosing who matters and who doesn't. In 2014 I wept as I told the senior pastor about my broken life, and he prayed for me. I faithfully attended Harvest for a year, and I was so happy. But I made a fatal mistake of trying to do more than just show up and play church.
I took my own money and started investing in the church. I bought $1,000 of Alexander Scourby King James Bibles on DVD and gave a box of 50 of them to the church office, to give to whomever they wanted. At least 20 people of my close neighbours (within eye's view from where I live) go to Harvest, but I am not welcome. What do you think that does to me psychologically? I live in depression because of them. I am a VICTIM of Harvest!!!
With my own money I bought a big box of tracts by Pastor Curtis Hutson from the Sword of The Lord. I ordered a bunch of books from Berean Publications and Amazon, including dozens of copies of “I Never Knew You” by Michael P. Bowen; and “NIV: The Antichrist's Bible” by Pastor Al Lacy. One book in particular really upset the senior pastor of Harvest, by Pastor Jack Hyles called: “Somebody's Got To Milk The Cows.” I started World War III and didn't even realize it. I was called into the church office and scolded as an evildoer by the church pastors, falsely accused of causing “confusion” and divisiveness.”
The book “Somebody's Got To Milk The Cows” emphasizes the importance of door-to-door soulwinning, which greatly offended the lazy pastors at Harvest who don't believe in aggressive soulwinning. Tragically, Harvest Baptist Church is a religious business on the island of Guam, not interested in public soulwinning. It breaks my heart that I became public enemy number one at Harvest—because my zeal for the inspiration of the King James Bible, truth, and personal soulwinning made them look really bad—showing that they are doctrinally corrupt pastors, lackadaisical about soulwinners, and guilty of promoting Satan's corruptible seed! What an ecumenical dunghill. God's curse is upon the reprobate Harvest Baptist Church on Guam!!!
Where dwelleth the love of God? These are wicked and unreasonable men! Any reasonable godly pastor would have contacted me one way or another to work things out, or at least give me a chance (and I would humble myself and completely cooperate). I can only conclude that they KNOW they are dropping the ball for God, or else they are henpecked and the rich people who control Harvest Baptist Church on Guam won't let them.
Either way, the Devil is behind all this. God will never bless Harvest as long as they hurt other people! I need a church family, but they won't receive me back, and that is a horrible rotten sin in God's sight (Romans 14:10). 2nd Corinthians 2:7, “So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.” Harvest Baptist Church would rather see a hurting man hang himself than welcome him back to their church family!!! God will deal with them as they have treacherously dealt with me, showing no mercy!!! I have no plans on hurting myself, Harvest has already done that to me. God is the only avenger (Romans 12:19-21).
I have had a difficult personal life. My wife abandoned my in 2006, and I was like a child abandoned in the woods by his parents. I almost commit suicide, and my life has gone sideways ever since, unable to emotionally stand upon my own two feet. I tried to relocate back to the United States from Guam in 2013, but I was emotionally overwhelmed and broke down in tears in Asheville, North Carolina, and couldn't take anymore, so I reluctantly returned to Guam. I crawled into the Harvest Baptist Church and desperately needed their help, love and friendship. At first they openly accepted me, and I loved them and generously poured my life and heart into the people and ministry.
I loved the senior pastor and bragged on him always, never speaking a single negative word against him in all of 2013-2014 that I attended Harvest. But like Samson, I regained my spiritual strength and God burdened my heart for the church. I saw dozens of different Bible revisions in the pews. The church even sells a handful of different Bible versions, ranging from the King James Bible to the Easy-To-Read Version (ERV), which is poison, removing the virgin birth from Isaiah 7:14. I was quickly treated like a criminal by the church, shunned, abandoned and ostracized. I left in tears, numb in my soul that professed men of God could be so insensitive to the truth. Please watch: 'NEW WORLD ORDER BIBLE VERSIONS' (awesome 1:46 hour movie). Harvest Baptist Church on Guam HATES this movie and they despise everything about it!!!
The Bob Jones University Crowd On Guam Behave Like Heathens
I had no church to attend for all of 2015 and 2016. I met a woman, the nurse at Harvest, laying in her hammock at Asan Beach on February 21, 2017. I cannot express in words what meeting her again did for me that day. She liked me for the year that I attended Harvest (which her good friend confirmed), and she won my heart, but I was afraid to reach out to her.
I too am a big coward when it comes to women, and I admit it, I am very shy and afraid to approach them. Anyway, I finally told her how I felt and wrote her and the church pastors, stating my intentions. The church pastors coerced her to tell me never to contact her again, which she did like their puppet, and I was afraid after that to dare contact her at all. In today's world, men are afraid of women, and when women bite at the hand reaching out to them, it is very intimidating.
I pleaded three times via e-mail to please allow me to attend Harvest's church services, but they literally told me to “Go elsewhere.” So I didn't have a church to attend all of 2017, 2018, 2019 and still in 2020. I hate Harvest Baptist Church for that (although I love the pastors and people, I only hate what they did to me), and I am telling the world that I am a VICTIM of scumbag pastors and wicked church members. Harvest is controlled by a group of rich snobs, a glorified social club.
Sadly, the people there couldn't care less about my pain, just so long as they are happy and get paid on staff. What a bunch of ungodly religious hypocrites! They'll never shut me up! Even if they sued me, I'd move elsewhere and start ten more websites. You'd think they'd rather make peace with a hurting brother, instead of cast me away forever. Where dwelleth God's love? Professed Christians today are the BIGGEST PHONIES on the planet! That definitely includes Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, and the majority of the Bob Jones crowd, who openly teach Calvinism now!
Due to my pain medications I cannot drive long distances. Harvest is only five minutes across the road. All of my neighbours either work on staff or attend Harvest Baptist Church. None of them will associate with me. I have cried night and day more times than I can remember, because of Harvest's cruel rejection of me as their brother in Christ. They laugh in my face, literally. God sees what they are doing, and He hears my cry against them!!! Romans 14:10 says “But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.” I have begged for their love, but they won't even talk to me. I have begged for a second chance, but they absolutely won't contact me or invite me back to church. It depresses me all the time! Since I still live here, and it is not easy for me in my situation to just up and move away, I am a VICTIM of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam.
They have done this to me! Just as Abel's blood cried out from the ground in Genesis 4:10, so does my blood cry out from my grieving soul, hated and despised by my Harvest neighbours, because their wicked pastors have intentionally turned them all against me to punish me. If you have never lived in a hostile community, where all your neighbours attend a certain church, but they kicked you out and won't allow you to return, then you cannot possibly understand my ongoing emotional pain. I am thankful to my web visitors who have complained to Harvest on my behalf. Thank you! I am glad somebody cares!
All I ever requested, with apologies and humility, is to just attend church services (and that is still my request); but they hate me, and they are supposed to be my Christian brothers and sisters. I truly do love everybody at Harvest (God knows my heart), and I would 10,000 times rather die than ever hurt any of them in any way; but I will expose their church online and warn people (as I do many churches). If they are so filled with grudges and hatred at Harvest (hiding behind phony smiles), so that they cannot accept a grieving and hurting Christian brother back into their congregation, then they should be exposed as a seclusive religious cult!
Harvest Baptist Church On Guam Deserves Harsh Criticism For Their Abuses
One of my web visitors, Mary, e-mailed Harvest to tell them how rotten they were being, and told them that she was led to the Lord by me. I am humbled. She let me know that she contacted them, and it made me happy to know that I have some friends in my own ministry who care about me.
I cry out to God almost daily for God to avenge me of what Harvest has done to me—preventing me from going to church for the past 5 years, making me feel like a bad person for befriending them with the truth (i.e., the truth that Satan is behind the Alexandrian Bible revisions they are using, and Lordship Salvation is a counterfeit Gospel, and John MacArthur whom they bid Godspeed to is an unsaved Calvinist false prophet), ostracizing me like Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer because I am King James Bible only, prejudicing against me because I said I was hoping to find a woman to marry at church (I think they are envious), verbally shunning me in public (a Harvest staff member walking past me at Chamorro Village with their two children, told his wife next to him not to smile at me, and she didn't), mocking me as a drive down the street (smiling at me but refusing to wave or invite me to church), turning me away when I apologized and begged for their help with my broken life, totally ignoring my pleas for their help all these many years.
I am a VICTIM of Harvest Baptist Church's woeful lack of love, concern, interest and denial of forgiveness for a hurting Christian brother. I still need their love, help, forgiveness and friendship; but they are insensitive, cold-hearted, carnal, and couldn't care less. They have no excuses with the Lord. God commands us as believers to love one another, and to be tender-hearted, forgiving and to help each other (Ephesians 4:30-32).
I have tried to attend a couple other Baptist churches, but they were too far, and I couldn't continue. Harvest has my blood on their hands. And if God forbid, I ever commit suicide like Ben Fieldhouse did in 2010 (a Harvest church member), Harvest Baptist Church will be 100% to blame! I don't plan on killing myself, but I am hurting in my body and soul, and the people who could help me by simply letting me attend church services, hate my guts. They would never admit that, but what else can you call it? No mother who aborts her child would admit to hating her own baby, but she sure does hate that child! It's easy to hurt someone you don't want to know. That is what Harvest is doing to me. You say, perhaps they are afraid. Then they are not right with God, because the Bible says God has not given us the spirit of fear. 2nd Timothy 1:7, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” I offered to remove any criticism about them from the internet.
I humbly offered to meet in the pastor's office and do whatever was required to make things right with the church family. They refused. What else can I do? I sent a case of 300 Gospels of John to the church, as a gesture of my sincerity. I purchased a 2-year subscription to the Sword Of The Lord for the senior pastor. They just don't care about me as a human being. I mean nothing to them. These are the Bob Jones University crowd on Guam. They seem like devils to me! Who does what they are doing to a hurting man? Ungodly selfish people, that's who. They make me out to be the bad guy, but all I humbly requested was to sit in church. It just proves that Harvest is a stinking business, and people don't really matter. My son-in-law is right, Harvest is just about making money, and people don't matter, unless they are giving them money in some capacity. SHAME ON HARVEST AND SHAME ON MY NEIGHBOURS... ALL OF YOU!!!
An Ungodly Attitude Toward Hurting People
I keep hearing a disgusting excuse that is popular in worldly businesses and churches today. They say no matter how hard you try, some people will always complain, and that some people just love misery, and you cannot please everybody. So they disregard those hurting people as leakage, as the cost of doing business! My Bible says he that covereth his sins shall not prosper! Harvest is not prospering!!! Proverb:28:13, “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.” My Bible says you cannot be right with God and wrong with your Christian brother. Matthew 5:23-24, “Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.” I have tried and tried and tried unsuccessfully to make peace with Harvest Baptist Church since 2017, but they refuse to even talk to me.
Where dwelleth the love of God? These are wicked and unreasonable men! Any reasonable pastor would have contacted me one way or another to work things out, or at least give me a chance. I can only conclude that they KNOW they are dropping the ball for God, or else they are henpecked and the rich people who control Harvest won't let them. Either way, the Devil is behind all this. Again, God will never bless Harvest as long as I am cursing them for abusing me, and I AM CURSING THEM! I need a church family, but they won't receive me back, and that is a horrible rotten sin in God's sight (Romans 14:10). 2nd Corinthians 2:7, “So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.” I am truly overwhelmed with much sorrow, but Harvest Baptist Church would rather see me asphyxiate myself than welcome me back to their church family!!! God will deal with them as they have treacherously dealt with me, showing no mercy!!! I am not planning on killing myself, but I am overwhelmed with much sorrow because of Harvest Baptist Church, and they laugh in my face.
Harvest Baptist Church is in fact the apostate LUKEWARM church of Laodicea in Revelation 3:15-17, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:” Please don't miss that! This is the inspired Words of almighty God, indicting a church for being naked, poor and wretched; yet the Bible says they were INCREASED WITH GOODS. Harvest has plenty of local support from the shallow business community on Guam. They have managers of businesses, government administrators, a former governor, airplane pilots, and other people of reputation; so they reject me because I am just a NOBODY! We'll find out at the Judgment Seat of Christ how much of a nobody I am, because I TOLD THE TRUTH that the modern Bible revisions Harvest uses are corrupted by the Devil, and they laughed in my face about it. Literally, when I handed a copy of Pastor Al Lacy's excellent book, “NIV: The Antichrist's Bible,” Pastor Baldwin laughed in my face and refused the book. God will deal with his wickedness, and his shameful unloving and doctrinally corrupted boss that he followed to Iowa!!!
I Am An Ongoing Victim Of Harvest's Woeful Lack of Love And Concern
I'm sure the new pastors are blaming this whole mess on the old pastors, which is typical human nature; but they know where I live, and they've read my website articles, and they live across the very street from me, and they are fully aware of the situation, and they don't give a damn!
All I am still humbly asking is to please let me attend church services, so I can have a church family, and start where I left off in 2014. Why won't they forgive and give me a second chance? I have (and still offer) to remove all my criticisms from the internet.
The only reason I haven't removed them already is because what if I do, and they still won't let me come back? Then I would hate them! So I am not going to go there. If they give me a second chance, then I have something to hold onto, hope. Right now I have nothing, except my broken life, and no church to attend (unless I drive across the island and risk crashing my car), and I am miserable.
You would be too if you had stenosis and radiculopathy in your neck (which I've been afflicted with since 2004). I suffer in constant chronic neck pain, but even more painful is being rejected, shunned, ostracized and ignored by a so-called New Testament Bible-believing independent Baptist church right in front of my face!
Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) was so right, and I miss and love him so much...
“God has a special rebuke, again and again and again in the Bible, toward those people who keep their neutrality in the work of God!” —SOURCE: Dr. Jack Hyles, a quote from the great MP3 sermon, “Where Were You In The Battle?”
I cannot even comprehend Pastor Hyles ever denying someone's humble request to attend church services, who has expressed humility and a desire to reconcile. Dr. Hyles even allowed the wicked Hammond Times to attend church services, knowing that they were sitting there as wolves with paper and pen, ready to use every word he said against him in their manure-spreading newspaper! Dr. Hyles believed that the preaching could change them, as God's Holy Spirit worked in their soul, and so he always encouraged EVERYONE to be in church as much as possible!
That is the way a genuine man of God thinks. I love Pastor Jeff Owens' sermon: “The Unrighteous Are Welcome Here!” Harvest Baptist Church won't even allow me, a righteous man, to attend church! What does that say about them? At a minimum it says they are far away from being right with God, and may very well mean they are not saved at all, following “another gospel” of Lordship Salvation (Acts 15:1; Galatians 3:1-3). I pray for God to avenge me of the wickedness of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam!!! They are pulling on the same rope as the Devil!!!
What Harvest Baptist Church has done to me, and is still doing today, is as wicked as Hell! It is a form of murder. They are killing me by ostracizing, shunning, ignoring and turning me away in my dark hour of emotional, physical and spiritual need. I am their Christian brother, but they won't even talk to me to see if we can work things out. I want to make peace, but they don't! God will chastise them for that! Sadly, they don't fear God and couldn't care less. I need a close church because of my health afflictions, but they don't care. I need the emotional connection with a local body of believers, but they are prejudiced against me. I need the preaching. Why don't they care? Why are the pastors and members of Harvest so insensitive and uncaring? What the hell is wrong with Harvest Baptist Church? By God's grace, I will never shut up if I have any say in the matter. I really don't think they care at all, about anything except themselves!!!
I humbly ask my web visitors to pray for me and my ministry labors. I am having a hard time emotionally right now with all this. It is difficult coping with constant neck pain and physical burning throughout my nervous system (from the stenosis and radiculopathy); being lonely without a wife is even more frustrating; but being ostracized by the local Baptist church that I love is overwhelming at times. If I cannot turn to my Christian brothers and sisters for help, love, guidance and comfort when I am distressed, then where can I go? Harvest Baptist Church has my blood on their hands.
I am a victim of their ecumenical indifference, woeful lack of love, hatred and wrongful prejudice against me because of my King James Bible only beliefs. Woe unto Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, my cry is unto God that He avenge me of your evils against me! Thankfully, as a redeemed child of God I can always find refuge in my precious Savior. 1st Samuel 30:6, “And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.”
“Faith is the only
righteous thing that I can do!”
—Pastor Jack Hyles, a quote from the MP3 sermon titled: “God's Reversal Of Psalm 51”
1st Corinthians 16:24, “My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.”
