What Is The Problem With Baptist Churches Today?

by David J. Stewart | March 2020

Colossians 1:20-23, "Ac:4:13: Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus."

       A web visitor recently asked me why so many professed Christians today are so shallow, complacent and indifferent? My answer was quick and simple—because pastors are no longer preachers! All across America, like at the shameful Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, pansies stand behind church pulpits, lacking the genuine walk with God that gives true men of God BOLDNESS! Acts 4:13, “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.”

Walking with God makes a man bold in his convictions and consuming Holy Spirit fire! You won't find that in 99% of Baptist churches today. Instead, you'll find some Mr. Fred Rodgers type, sissy-britches, spineless, jellyfish, coward for a pastor who doesn't know how to PREACH! That is why America is going to Hell in a wheelbarrow!!!

I know some people don't like that I rip on Harvest Baptist Church (HBC) on Guam so much (and some do very much), but HBC are the epitome of everything that is wrong in churches today! They have become an ecumenical nightmare and just don't care! Their pastors are full of pride and arrogance, unwilling to course-correct. Pride Disqualifies A Pastor! There is nothing worse than a proud minister, who arrogantly rejects THE TRUTH. If you don't see what's wrong with sanctioning more than one ancient Bible source, then you are a fool of fools! Folks, God authored ONE HOLY BIBLE, not two, not thirteen, not 900! So why does Bob Jones University and their apostate graduates use, sell and support umpteen Bible revisions?

It is because of everything I just said—they are Mr. Fred Rodgers type, sissy-britches, spineless, jellyfish, cowards who merely go along with the religious crowd, unwilling to suffer reproach for the name of Jesus! I didn't bring the fight to them, they brought the fight to me! They don't want to be labeled by the intelligencia as an “ignorant cult.” In so doing, they have become an IGNORANT CULT!!! I agree with Pastor Jack Hyles, who said he'd rather recite his A, B, C's in Heaven, than to study Greek in Hell. To Hell with Bob Jones University, their pompous disgusting graduates, and their whores in tight pants! I am so sick of professed “Christians” treating each other like crap! All I'm doing is lifting the lid on a garbage can of reprobates! If Harvest knew anything about the love of Christ, none of this would have happened. I will not remain silent about the evils I have seen at Harvest!

They won't allow me to attend their church at Harvest, because I told THE TRUTH! They're the only nearby Baptist church, and they don't want me, so I have great motivation to continue preaching THE TRUTH, and make lemonade from lemons! Hey, when a church forces me out and then bans me over THE TRUTH, it is a very BIG DEAL!!! They drew first blood, like Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) says in the movie. I was just being a friend to them, but their proud and arrogant pastors are haughty, and that includes the new incompetent bozo clowns they have for pastors! EXPOSING HERESY IS A GOOD THING! If you think preaching against counterfeit Bibles is unethical, then you're an IDIOT! If you think preaching against bad churches by name in un-Christlike, then you're a FOOL! If you think preaching against the Devil's lie of Calvinism is unloving, then you have a serious SPIRITUAL PROBLEM!

By God's grace, I'll never shut up as long as I am able to PREACH THE TRUTH! This battle between me and Harvest Baptist Church goes much deeper than just me and them, this is all about the Hyles-Anderson College camp versus the Bob Jones University camp (back when HAC faithfully believed that the King James Bible was inspired). Today, I wouldn't send my dog to HAC, and I don't even have a dog! Until they proclaim once more publicly that the King James Bible is 100% verbally inspired, I wouldn't recommend ANYONE to go there! Ichabod is written over their doors! I love my home college, and my heart will always be there, but I don't even recognize Hyles-Anderson anymore, because things have drastically CHANGED at the First Baptist Church of Hammond (FBCH). The biggest irony of it all is that Pastor Jack Hyles and Dr. Russell Anderson 100% believed that the King James Bible is verbally inspired, of whom the college stills bares both their names. The greatest truth which Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) ever preached was the inspiration of the King James Bible, without which we have no Word of God today. FBCH has been a dead-stick since 2008, having boldly denied the inspiration of God's Word. It is just a matter of time before the church dies completely, as has 95% of Baptist churches across America, now teaching the heresy of Lordship Salvation (Calvinism) instead of the Gospel of free grace!

The very foundation of counterfeit Christianity is the denial of having a verbally (word for word) inspired Holy Bible today! If you don't have a King James Bible, you don't have a Holy Bible! The apostasy being promoted at Bob Jones University is 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 times more infectious and deadly than the new Coronavirus! Just as the Coronavirus has a morality rate (2%), so also do the Devil's modern corrupt Bible revisions have a mortality rate!!! Calvinism has a mortality rate! Lordship Salvation has a mortality rate! To the extent that someone has been infected by these evils, they will spiritually suffer, and many spend eternity burning in the fires of Hell! The LOVE OF MONEY has corrupted today's churches and Bible colleges. James 5:1-2, “Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.”

I hear these ecumenical fools talking about being more loving, writing nicer articles on my ministry website, and kissing up to this stiffnecked generation who don't fear God (that includes religious people), so I allegedly can reach more people. To Hell with that kind of Satanic thinking! I'm not trying to reach more people! I'm not trying to increase my web traffic! I'm not trying to be nice! I don't care about money and have never taken a penny (and never will). I am preaching THE TRUTH!!! I want to help that one lost sheep out of 100 for Christ who has gone astray, not the 99 proud self-righteous hypocrites, internet trolls, who criticize, condemn and have it all figured out. My website ministry for the past 18 years, since 2002, has helped tens of thousands of lost sheep (those 1 out of 100), among over 110,000,000 web visitors (to God alone be the glory). I am just “A VOICE” (MP3 by Dr. Hyles) crying in the wilderness of cyberspace! I truly do love everybody, God knows and weighs my heart, but I am opinionated and bold to speak what I believe to be THE TRUTH!

Apostate institutions like Bob Jones University, Pensacola Christian College and Moody Bible Institute are producing some of the lamest pansies imaginable to labor in the ministry. In reality, they are parasites milking the cow of Christianity! I visited Moody's website and saw a teen girl jumping in the air with torn out knees in her jeans. She ought not even be wearing pants, which is for men only. That is typical of the worldliness, lack of class, and apostasy which saturates Bible colleges today. I met a fool-headed ignoramus intern pastor from Pensacola Christian College, who called me “obsessed” for telling some church members what is wrong with the modern Bible revisions; and yet that same fool admitted to me that he doesn't know one thing wrong with the modern Bible versions! What an incompetent hypocrite! Harvest Baptist Church cannot compensate for lack of truth with a thriving religious school. They are failures in God's sight, because they reject THE TRUTH, promoting the evils of Zionism, Young Earth Creation, Lordship Salvation and Fake Bibles! SHAME ON HARVEST! The saddest thing of all is their calloused hearts.

I have been literally laughed at, mocked, shunned, pointed at, and ridiculed by members of Harvest for my faithful stand for THE TRUTH of God's inspired Word. I make no apologies for telling THE TRUTH for Jesus Christ!!! They are an arrogant, self-conceited, bunch of apostates! Their Harvest Baptist Academy is the only thing that keeps the cult doors open, and the only purpose (in my humble opinion) for which they even have a religious gathering each Sunday, so BJU graduates can fulfill a religious obligation to attend church (if you can call it that). Any so-called “church” that promotes corruptible seed (i.e., the modern versions) and a false Gospel is a “CULT.” The problem with Baptist churches today is indifference, complacency and apathy, which are all manifestations of a sinfully proud heart against God. The fools at Harvest don't even realize the mess that they're in, deceived by the Devil just as Revelation 12:9 says.

Hey, if you don't believe me, then listen to Evangelist Billy Sunday...

“It would be a Godsend if the Church would suffer persecution today; she hasn't suffered it for hundreds of years. She is growing rich and lagging behind. Going back.” —Billy Sunday, The Need for Revivals, From "Billy Sunday: The Man and His Message", by William T. Ellis, Philadelphia: John C. Winston Co., 1914
Listen to Pastor Jeff Owens...

“AMERICA'S PULPITS HAVE BECOME WEAK!” Pastor Jeff Owens, “Unloved Preachers

Listen to Pastor Robert G. Lee...

“'Ichabod' will be written about the church that soft-pedals on unpleasant truth or that stands not unwaveringly for 'the faith once delivered.'” Dr. Robert G. Lee, from the powerful sermon, PAYDAY SOMEDAY! | MP3

Listen to Pastor Chuck Baldwin...

“Blindness has enveloped the Christian church nationwide!” —Pastor Chuck Baldwin, a quote from the needful video sermon, “Many Antichrist; One Beastly System”)

Listen to Pastor Danny Castle...

“What we need in this generation, is for about 30,000 churches in the United States to go out of business, and just shut the doors, and let who mean business, get the power of God, and witness to this generation!” —Pastor Danny Castle, a quote from the awesome sermon, “How To Have Power With God” | MP3 Sermon

Listen to Pastor Jack Hyles...

“You know the difference in the First Baptist Church of Hammond and most other churches in this area. Huh? We've got more than a welcome sign out in front, we've got a welcome sign on the front door of all the people. We go where they are!” Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001), from the timeless MP3 sermon, The Pearl Of Great Price

Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is NOT a soulwinning church, not in the least way. They don't have any outreach ministries. It's just a glorified social club for RICH FAT OLD MEN! I wish the place would go out of business and stop stinking up the island of Guam with their presence. They welcome the rich and affluent, former politicians, airplane pilots and government workers; but shun everyday hurting people like me, who asked humbly for their love and help. At Harvest they only help themselves! Don't expect to find any love at Harvest, unless you are a big voted-in tither, or are somebody connected with a student enrolled in their money-making business! Harvest Baptist Business—that is what they really are, and a disgrace to the cause of Jesus Christ!!!

Listen to Dwight L. Moody...

“Our church is cold,” complained a deacon to Dwight L. Moody (1837-1899). “What can we do about it?” “Build a fire in the pulpit,” ordered Moody!

Listen to Billy Sunday once again...

“We've got churches, lots of them. We've got preachers, seminaries, and they are turning out preachers and putting them into little theological molds and keeping them there until they get cold enough to practice preaching.” —Billy Sunday, “Criticism and Criticism” (chapter 18), from his biography by William T. Ellis titled, “Billy Sunday: The Man And His Message”

Whether you agree or disagree with my uncompromising Bible preaching all depends on which side of the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) you are on. If you like being lied to, denied THE TRUTH, and going along to save face, then you'll like a spiritual North Korea like Harvest Baptist Church on Guam; but if you are like me, holding to a free grace view of the Gospel, and you are a LOVER OF THE TRUTH, then you will want to vomit in a place like Harvest Baptist Church!!! I speak this to their shame at Harvest. There is nothing they could ever do to me, any worse than what I've already suffered through in my life; and I don't care anymore what people think or do, I am standing for God and truth! Whatever happens to me happens to Jesus (Matthew 25:40, 45; Colossians 3:1-3).

It's the strangest thing of all to me, how professed Christians have been so easily duped by the Devil to accept dozens of Bible revisions! The average Baptist pastor today sees no difference between the plan of salvation of Pastor Curtis Hutson and Dr. John MacArthur, as unlearned and ignorant as a box of rocks! Yet, these incompetent employed men stand before God's flock and receive praise and admiration of which they are unworthy. 1st Timothy 5:17, “Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.” The incompetent pastors of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam cannot even get the plan of salvation correct! They cannot even discern which Bible revision is accurate, so they sanction a bunch of them! They should be removed and replaced with legitimate men of God, who hate Calvinism and expose it, not promote it. I am reminded of Jesus' words in John 8:26a, “I have many things to say and to judge of you....” If I am upset over heresy which has crept into our Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches, I can only imagine how angry the Lord is!

Please understand that I sincerely love the pastors, staff and people at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, but they have been deceived by Satan, and are pulling on the same rope as the Devil, and I care enough to say something about it. Since they have banned me from even attending their church services since 2014, for telling THE TRUTH, I find this matter an extremely worthy and important subject to continue preaching about! When godly laymen are banned from New Testament churches for being honest, for SPEAKING UP with THE TRUTH for God, someone needs to cry “WOLF!”

ABOVE: Evangelical Christianity today in America!
A picture of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam definitely!

People are sick and tired of these dead churches!


“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.”

Confession Is Never A Requirement For Salvation

'The Gospel' In Just One Minute (by Pastor Max D. Younce)

John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

“As a blind man has no idea of colors, so we have no idea of the manner by which the all-wise God perceives and understands all things.” —Isaac Newton (1642-1727)

Another Gospel Which Is Not Another
(a red-hot MP3 by Dr. Curtis Hutson exposing Lordship Salvation)

Psalm 34:8, “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.”

“If you have to look at your life to prove that you are saved, it proves that you're not!”
—Pastor Yankee Arnold; an excellent quote from the sermon titled, “Why Lordship Salvation is WRONG! | MP3.”

Ye Must Be Born Again!

You Need HIS Righteousness!
