The Desperate Need For Humble Pastors
By David J. Stewart | June 2018 | Updated May 2019
16:19, “Better it is to be of an
with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.”
I love our text Bible verse. God is a lowly God. I am so glad to know that God is not a proud snob, like are many pastors, Bible college professors and church staff today! They shamefully excuse their arrogance and sinful pride as being an imperfect “human.” The truth is they couldn't care less about doing what is right nor pleasing the Lord, so they hide behind false humanity. They've become spiritually calloused, but are still very sensitive about getting paid regularly. Christianity has become a mere job to them! They go along to get along with the religious crowd.
That is why the Southern Baptist Convention has gone to ruin! That is why Bob Jones University has gone to ruin! That is why Moody Bible Institute has gone to ruin! That is why Harvest Baptist Church on Guam has gone to ruin! That is why Pensacola Christian College has gone to ruin! That is why Hyles-Anderson College has gone to ruin with First Baptist Church of Hammond! Pride, arrogance, indifference, bad attitudes and sinful compromise by ungodly leaders and weak followship have ruined these institutions! The worst thing a believer can do is remain silent about adverse change!!!
“Somebody said about a preacher, 'He changed his position.' Listen carefully, nobody ever changes his position. CHANGE IS A POSITION!!! ... When you change, you never have a set position anymore. Truth is set. Truth is stable. Change is not. When you leave the truth, you don't stop anywhere, you keep on changing! And that's why it's called 'backsliding'!” —Dr. Bob Gray Sr., a quote from the sermon, Truth Vs. Change.
God knows that I have a heart of love for FBCH and HAC where I came from, but they've changed for the worse! Dr. Bob Gray Sr. said it best in the preceding quote... CHANGE IS A POSITION!!! Once a church or Bible college start to change, they KEEP CHANGING!!! What the Devil is doing to the Holy Bible is a perfect example—at first it was just a couple versions, and then a few more, and then the dam broke and the whole town was flooded!
Read what the soulwinning preacher, Pastor Martin R. DeHaan, warned everyone prior to 1965 when he went to Heaven...
“Be on guard against any tampering with the Word, whether disguised as a search for truth, or a scholarly attempt at apparently hidden meanings; and beware of the confusion created by the senseless rash of new versions, translations, editions, and improvements upon the tried and tested Bible of our fathers and grandfathers.” —Dr. M.R. DeHaan (1891-1965), from the excellent book, THE TABERNACLE, Pg. 101
How tragic it is today that Dr. DeHaan's descendants have ignored his wisdom, embracing the Devil's modern corrupt Bible versions in Our Daily Bread (literally you can choose your version). May I say, kindly, no one has a “right” to CHOOSE which “version” of God's Word you want to accept. You do have a choice, but you have no “RIGHT” to choose what YOU want. You have a “responsibility” and a “duty” to discern which of the hundreds of English Bible versions is the genuine inspired Word of God. It cannot be all of them! President Abraham Lincoln understood this truth well...
“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!” —U.S. President Abraham Lincoln
Beware of false prophets who downplay the drastic differences between the Bibles.
The Importance of Just One Word
I recently ordered a banjo for a family member as a gift. When the banjo came, the truss rod cover and three attachment screws were missing on the neck's headstock. Someone messed up at the factory. I kindly wrote to the company and let them know, requesting the cover and screws. I even offered to pay for the missing items (because that is just the way I am). The owner kindly wrote back and said the cover and screws were on the way, free of charge. I thanked him! The next day an employee from the company also e-mailed (not aware that the owner had already taken care of the matter), mentioning to me that he had missed a few days of work and just got back. He said, “Did you mean just the truss rod cover?” I went back to read my e-mail and noticed that I had asked for a “truss road cover.” It was a typo on my part. I immediately thought the man was making fun of me. I wrote back and scolded him for making fun of me, explaining that my neck pain and medications affect me, and I make typos regularly. I told him that he ought not make fun of people, and what he did was low class and horrible. I sent the e-mail to him and the owner.
I went back a few hours later, just to think over what I had said, to make sure I was being just (which is important for every Christian to continually do about everything we say and do). I felt horrible when I realized that I had missed ONE WORD... “just”! If he had said, “Did you mean the truss rod cover?,” then I would have been justified in scolding him for saying such a horrible thing. But that is not what he said! He said, “Did you mean just the truss rod cover?” I realized that he was actually asking me if I also wanted the three attachment screws, or JUST the cover. Humbly, I e-mailed the man back (and the owner) and told them both I was sorry, and to please forgive me, I had missed ONE WORD in his e-mail. I am being transparent to share this with you, to make a very good application about the Word of God. By overlooking ONE WORD, it completely changed the intended meaning of what the man had wrote to me. How much more important are the eternal words of almighty God? In literally THOUSANDS of places today's Bible versions DISAGREE and have been CORRUPTED!
Here is an example of how the modern Bible perversions CHANGE the Word of God into a LIE, corrupting the plan of salvation. Changing just ONE WORD can completely alter the intended meaning of a Bible verse!!! As I learned the hard way recently, we all need to be careful about words, because adding, subtracting or overlooking even ONE WORD can have detrimental consequences!
Satan Has a New Corrupt Bible Version for You Too!
Satan is a beautiful liar! Bad pastors are doing incalculable damage by promoting fake Bible versions. The greatest damage of all is a wall of impenetrable indifference that has built up toward THE TRUTH in America! I have spent umpteen hours examining several dozen different Bible versions, and have researched the matter, finding out to my horror that millions of people are being deceived by the Devil with, of all things, a so-called “Holy Bible.” But then again, when you stop to think about it, if I were the Devil, I would corrupt the Bible too! Revelation 12;9, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
“If you're saved tonight, you don't want to hold the truth in unrighteousness. Error is change. The process of changing is what error is. You don't go from truth to error, you go from truth to change; and everything that is born of change is error. Now the further from truth you travel, the more error you have. Error is infinite; truth is finite. Error never stops; truth has its limits.” —Dr. Bob Gray Sr., a helpful quote from the sermon, Truth Vs. Change.
It blows my mind to realize that the average Baptist pastor today is so lacking in spiritual discernment, that he accepts multiple English paraphrases. It is insanity and clearly of the Devil. Satan is “the author of confusion,” not God (1st Corinthians 14;33). One of the main reasons why pastors have turned apostate is because of the corrupt Bible colleges, like Bob Jones University (BJU) and Moody Bible Institute (MBI) who use, sell and promote the Alexandrian-based Bible versions. If I am being unreasonable (which I am not) for making too big a fuss over Satan tampering with the Word of God, then what does that say about the tens-of thousands of pastors today who couldn't care less? They are arrogant and I am glad to call names! I am glad to expose Satan's works of darkness! I am glad to expose the reprobate Bob Jones University crowd, who unjustly call Pastor Jack Hyles “a cult,” who rightly exposed the corrupt Alexandrian manuscripts of the Bible. I stand with Dr. Hyles 100% because he stood with THE TRUTH! BJU and their alumni don't care!
We know that Jesus said the tares (unsaved) would grow among the wheat (saved), but we must NEVER make the dire error of accepting the tares (as if they are wheat). Matthew 13:29-30, “But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.” The Lord has chosen to leave the saints (i.e., His redeemed children) in the world. We live among the unsaved (the tares). There are tares (unsaved people) in every church! The tares oftentimes bring damnable heresies into the church; such as, baptismal regeneration (water baptism for salvation), turning from sinful ways for salvation, following Jesus as Lord for salvation, et cetera. A faithful Christian exposes these satanic lies!
Proverbs 11:2, “When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.”
Churches are so backslidden and apostate that they don't receive a person who contends for the faith. They reject him, like Harvest Baptist Church on Guam rejected me. When the senior pastor of Harvest responded to my sincere and humble requests to come back to the church in 2017, he spelled my name with a lowercase “d.” That is disrespect and I kindly told him so. I showed him respect in my e-mails, but it was a one way street. The ecumenical pastor apparently thinks he is better than me. It's bizarre, but Christianity is being driven underground! On the face of things in Europe, Australia and the United States, they look like Christian nations—there are plenty of churches—but when one digs deeper, when one really IS a Christian, and wishes to make a stand for the Christian faith, one quickly finds apostasy and rejection. Hundreds of thousands of churches today (and that includes many corrupted independent Baptist churches), have multiple plans of salvation [i.e., Calvinism (tares) and the Gospel (wheat)]. Churches that promote Lordship salvation are satanic cults, not churches! Churches that promote Dr. John MacArthur might as well promote Herbert Armstrong, Joseph Smith and Charles Russell! These ungodly false prophets all teach partial faith in Christ plus something else! The Gospel excludes ALL human effort and self-righteousness!!!
A faithful Christian exposes the Devil's counterfeit Bibles. Some people no doubt are upset with me for exposing Bob Jones University and Harvest Baptist Church on Guam by name, but they are helping the Devil by promoting corruptible seed. In fact, they are helping damn people to Hell by promoting corrupt perversions of the Bible, which redefine repentance from a simple “change of mind” (Greek: metanoeo) to a complicated change of life instead. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again, and that is what the new Bible perversions are doing!!! Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” It is utterly disgusting what is going on in the churches today! The truth doesn't matter anymore to churches and Bible colleges! Proof of what I say can be seen in these three disturbing reports...
- Direction Determines Destination! (Dr. Bob Gray Sr.; Pastor Paul Chappell is headed the wrong way!)
- Apostasy Report: The Southern Baptist Convention Is Fallen, Fallen! (Shocking church mess!)
- New Southern Baptist Convention President, J.D. Greear, Says Christians Ought To Be Advocates For LGBTQ Community!
“There is a true Christianity amidst all the dense forest, of false gods and women.” —Dr. Texe Marrs
Pride, Arrogancy, the Evil Way and Froward Mouth
The following Bible verse is loaded with doctrine. Proverbs 8:13, “The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.” Carefully notice that there are FOUR THINGS that God considers “evil,” which every Christian believer is commanded to hate, evidencing that we fear God. These four evil things are: PRIDE, ARROGANCY, the EVIL WAY and the FROWARD MOUTH. Pastors who have been warned but continue to use, sell and promote Satan's corrupt, Alexandrian-based, modern, Bible revisions are sinfully proud. They have a spirit of arrogance, so that you cannot tell them anything, because they are close-minded, going along to get along with the popular evangelical apostasy of our time. They are helping evil and have a froward mouth!
These four things are all related in Proverbs 8:13. Pride, arrogance, the evil way and a froward mouth all go together! Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is speaking things that they ought not, subverting whole households with their counterfeit Bible versions, heresy of Lordship Salvation, and teaching that the unsaved false prophet Martin Luther is a hero of the Christian faith! Since I don't have a church to attend, because the local independent Baptist church five minutes from me is woefully corrupt in doctrine, and has banned me from returning, I am going to SPEAK UP FOR GOD! Revelation 3:2, “Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.”
Any time that we go our own way instead of God's way is sinful pride. When a faithful Christian warns someone that they have gone astray, but they still don't want to do right, it is because they are arrogant, having stiffnecked pride. Modern intellectuals have an arrogant feeling of superiority over God's Word. They resent and get angry when anyone doesn't agree with their faulty views. The modern counterfeit Bible versions are the EVIL WAY. The apostate religious crowd today who use, sell and support the Devil's Bible perversions, as Bob Jones University does, have a froward mouth, that is, a crooked mouth. They do not speak THE TRUTH, they are full of LIES and DECEIT!!! To sanction the Westcott and Hort perversions of God's Word is rooted in PRIDE, ARROGANCY, the EVIL WAY and the FROWARD MOUTH. God HATES these things!!!
Please hear me out... GOD HATES THESE THINGS!!! This is an important matter. When God says He “hates” something, we ought to sit attentively and take heed. I have spoken with numerous local Baptist pastors, who sinfully shirk off the matter of Lordship Salvation and the inspiration of the Holy Bible. I have kindly warned local pastors on Guam about the corrupt modern Bible versions, but they foolishly accuse me of being “obsessed” with the Bible debate. Well, if they cared at all, then faithful Christians like me wouldn't have to contend so much to compensate for their cowardly silence. Let's face it, over 95% of pastors today only care about their next paycheck. They couldn't care less about THE TRUTH. They merely want to increase the size of their congregation and don't care if people are knowledgeable about THE TRUTH.
“We need to understand that Elders are to be respected by default, but when they start teaching lies and wickedness and perversion and filth, at that point they've just lost respect right there. They've lost their right to be respected!” —Pastor Steven Anderson, a quote from the needful sermon, “The Baby Boomer Generation.”
The ministry is a mere occupation to them, although they would never admit to such shallow aspirations. They filter the truth, feeding their congregation an unbalanced diet of sugar-baby sermonettes, artificial sweeteners, cotton candy, and lame words that cannot produce true repentance unto life. You cannot reason with such wicked pastors, because they are proud and arrogant, giving blind loyalty to reprobate Bible colleges like Bob Jones University and cults like Harvest Baptist Church that teach Lordship Salvation instead of the Gospel. They promote Satan's corruptible seed. And sadly, people are like stupid sheep, who will follow a corrupt leader most of the time, because very few people ever learn to think for them self. I think for myself, and my only authority is the inspired King James Bible!!!!!!!
Do you know when you really think about it, getting saved boils down to humility—humbling yourself before God as a guilty sinner, realizing that you cannot save yourself, placing all your reliance upon the only begotten Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ! Romans 10:3-4, “For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.”
In the same way, the ongoing debate over the inspiration and purity of God's Word really boils down to HUMILITY—humbling yourself to admit that everyone can't be right! There are literally HUNDREDS of English Bible versions, but only ONE BOOK STANDS ALONE! (i.e., the inspired King James Bible). We need humble pastors today, who drop to their knees before God and seek THE TRUTH! Instead, pastors and Bible colleges are following the crowd, going along to get along, taking the safe route and selling out! It is apostasy!!! I CARE! Do you?
8:7, “For my mouth shall
and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.”
A Christian With a Humble and Lowly Spirit Embraces Truth!
The Lord is humble in spirit, full of compassion, always thinking about OTHERS. Jesus plainly said that He is MEEK and LOWLY. Matthew 11:28-30, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” The Lord is meek and lowly. That means Jesus is gentle and humble. Our precious Lord is low in esteem. ...
Philippians 2:1-6, “If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.”
We are living in a time of spoiled pastors. Whereas Jesus care about the things of OTHERS (their burdens, hardships, needs and looking out for them in general), today's selfish pastors primarily look out for their own best interests. I'm talking about the shallow Bob Jones University, Pensacola Christian College, Ambassador Bible College, Faith Baptist Bible College And Theological Seminary and Moody Bible Institute crowd. I'm sure there are some good men from these Bible colleges, and I thank God for BOTH of them! Pastors receive so much support, affection, money, gifts, recognition, praise and fringe benefits from people that they become spoiled. PCC is helping build empty churches without the foundation of TRUTH! There is no greater error which has crept into the churches today, than the Devil's trio of: Counterfeit Bible versions, Lordship Salvation and False Repentance!!! These three strings on the Devil's banjo all strike the same chord of damnation!!!
There is a gigantic spoiled group of pastors in America, of all religious faiths (including independent Baptists), who treat the clergy as a mere profession, a white-collar occupation. I am sick of spoiled pastors, who have become haughty, arrogant, selfish, know-it-alls, esteeming themselves better than others! No one loves a humble pastor like I do, who preaches the truth uncompromisingly, and values a truth-teller (like me) instead of shunning him away!!! I can't stand Richy rich, high brow, manmade Israel idolizing, snobby, elitist, Dr. Tom Ferrell type 5-star Hilton Hotel bred so-called Christian “leaders”! They are pompous, snobby, highbrow religious businessmen, shallow evangelists, making BIG BUCKS! I wouldn't give you a dime for that apostate crowd!!! I'm talking about the Faith Baptist Bible College And Theological Seminary (cemetery) in Iowa, a bunch of wealthy and upper middleclass religious snobs, who do NOTHING to win souls to Christ! Their Lordship Salvation heresy is of the Devil. I couldn't care less what anybody thinks anymore, I am going to speak my mind regarding THE TRUTH! To Hell with America's apostate pseudo Bible colleges! 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.”
By the way, every one of the Bible colleges that I mentioned earlier all deny the verbal inspiration of the King James Bible, go figure! Bible colleges? Ha ha ha! That's like a medical school that denies the human body has a heart! If the Holy Bible is not inspired, then it is imperfect, and if it is imperfect it is corrupt and cannot be God's Word; therefore, God would be a liar (Psalms 12:6-7) and we wouldn't have a trustworthy Holy Bible!!! I am appalled that any preacher would teach that at best we only have a corrupt Bible today. If I believed that to be the case, I'd throw my Bible into the garbage and never preach again, because I cannot preach without THE TRUTH!
Snobby, Highfalutin, Indifferent Pastors, Ought to Be Fired
I am not writing this article to be unkind, but to shed light on a sore evil that no one is talking about or exposing—and that is highfalutin spoiled pastors who parasite off the work of God, while having a lackadaisical attitude toward truth. I spoke with one local shameful Baptist pastor who wanted me to stop talking about the corrupt modern Bible versions, because he said he wants to “build his church” and “doesn't want any controversies” that could hinder that growth. What a fool! I wish I could fire him... “YOU'RE FIRED”! Any man who prioritizes church growth over telling THE TRUTH doesn't deserve the honor and position of being a pastor. That's one of the rocket-scientist interns from Pensacola Christian College! What a sorry excuse for a pastor! That reprobate should be pushing a broom somewhere, cleaning toilets, empting garbage cans, but not influencing people from a church pulpit.
And that sadly includes the former apostate pastor of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam (who idolizes John MacArthur and teaches Lordship Salvation), who ought to be a manager of a MacDonald's restaurant somewhere, but not working in any capacity of Christian leadership! If pastors don't expose Satan's works of darkness, then who will? Ephesians 5:11, “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” Dr. Hyles is so right, today's horrible pastors don't want to suffer reproach for the name of Christ, they don't want to be put outside the gate with Jesus!
God's Truth is Not Subject to Man's Opinion!
On judgment day, those sorry rascals will give account to God, losing rewards and suffering severe censure from the Lord, for their sinful attitude toward heresy and the truth. Those shameful pastors don't want people to hear about how corrupt the modern Bible versions are, because it sheds a very dark and serious light upon Harvest Baptist Church down the street and Bob Jones University, who are both pulling on the same rope as the Devil by promoting, selling and using Satan's corruptible seed. Dr. Jack Hyles rightly called it, “THE BATTLE OF THE AGES” (MP3, 1994, the most important sermon you'll ever hear, next to getting saved). I'm sick of stiff-necked pastors! Oh how the tears will flow at the Judgment Seat of Christ, when hordes of deceived churchgoers try to skimper away in shame as the truth is told—that Westcott and Hort were unsaved infidels and their Greek texts (upon which all the modern corrupt Bible paraphrases are based) are of the Devil, which Harvest and BJU fully support!!! Do you really think that God is upset with me for expose error, telling THE TRUTH, refuting works of darkness, and upholding the inspiration of the King James Bible? If you do, you've been woefully deceived by the Devil. We are living in a generation of pansy-preachers, wusses with no gonads! ...
“[You] little bunch of pantywaist, mama-called, papa-fed, seminary-bred, preachers running around the country, can't preach their way out of a wet papersack, that haven't got any courage at all. ... You sorry rascal you!” —Dr. Jack Hyles
Dividing the Spoil: Making Big Bucks in the Religious Racket
Proverbs 16:19, “Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.” The King James Bible crowd are lowly and humble! We believe that God actually kept His promise to preserve His “PURE WORDS” (Psalms 12:6-7) “from this generation forever.” Psalms 12:6-7, “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” It is God's pure words that the Lord promise to preserve. Every modern Bible perversion totally corrupts this promise, removing it! The average deceived Baptist pastor today is honest enough to admit that he is not a Greek scholar, but he foolishly submits to the intellectual gods of high-learning who falsely CLAIM to know; but any fool can see that when these arrogant infidels, these so-called “scholars,” promote counterfeit Bible versions that attack Christ's deity, eliminate the Godhead, secularize the Scriptures, diminish Jesus' preeminence and corrupt God's Word—THEY ARE DEMONIC LIARS!!!
These spoiled brats promote each other on their organization's board of directors, they take frequent trips to Israel, they live high on the hog, pay themselves 6-digit salaries, they are well-known in the business community and are disgusting highbrow snobs. They avoid associating with meek and lowly people, those who have made mistakes in life and are tarnished by sin, those who are not part of the white shoe boy's club. They are sinfully arrogant and proud, and don't give fellow Christian brothers a second chance. They hold grudges. They form cliques. Kindly, I am talking about Bob Jones University and some of their grudge-holding alumni. BJU are indifferent toward the truth. They mock, criticize and insult faithful King James Bible believers, calling us a “cult.” When Bob Jones University (BJU) and their alumni call Pastor Jack Hyles, Dr. Peter Ruckman, Evangelist Al Lacy and little ole me “a cult” for telling the truth about Satan's corrupt Alexandrian Bible versions, I take it seriously! I tell you, Bob Jones University is THE ALEXANDRIAN CULT.
America is filled with shameful pastors who eat the finest of dining cuisine, stay in the finest of 5-star hotels, fly to dozens of different nations for ministry related “business” and personal reasons (all vacations paid for by the ministry). These pastors live the good life while hiding behind a false cloak of humility. Granted, there is nothing wrong with a pastor taking a trip to Israel. There is nothing wrong with a pastor eating fine meals. However, pastors receive so many of these blessings that it oftentimes ruins them, elevating them into the Richy-rich club. I have seen umpteen pastors who sold out for money, hobnobbing with the ecumenical crowd for prosperity, like Pastor Paul Chappell is doing right now in California, yoking together with the queer supporting Southern Baptist Convention!Businessmen think in terms of money, but Jesus warned in Luke 16:13, “Ye cannot serve God and mammon” (money). A preacher always upholds the truth, without concern for money...
“All across America businessmen are destroying churches!”
—Dr. Jack Hyles, a quote from the classic MP3 sermon, “I Find No Fault In This Man!”
Why do you think John the Baptist lived off the land out in the desert wilderness? John needed nothing from anybody, so he could let 'er rip and PREACH THE TRUTH!!! The love of money is the enemy of PREACHING!!!
Even as God, Jesus doesn't think He is better than other people, too good to give a hurting brother a second chance, like Harvest Baptist Church on Guam rejects me. Jesus is not too snobby to express gratitude toward others who give to him, and express love toward Him.
Matthew 11:28-30, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Our Lord is “lowly” [depressed, that is, (figuratively) humiliated (in circumstances or disposition): - base, cast down, humble, of low degree (estate), lowly]. A lowly preacher heeds THE TRUTH, he does not reject and avoid it to go along with corrupt peers!
Make A Difference, Speak!
Silence Is agreement!
God says it is better to have a humble spirit and gravitate toward lowly people, than to share the benefits of rubbing shoulders with proud buddies in the religious business. I'm thinking about the Bob Jones University crowd. I could write a book on this important subject. Proverbs 19:1, “Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.” Proverbs 28:6, “Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.”
I visited Pensacola, Florida in 2018 and drove past city block after city block of real estate owned by Pensacola Christian College (PCC). PCC is going the wrong direction! PCC are silent concerning the modern corrupt Bible versions! Their graduates are woefully ignorant of anything wrong with the Devil's corrupt Bible versions. Their interns don't value THE TRUTH! What good are a bunch of missionaries that were trained by PCC, if they don't uphold the inspiration of the Word of God? I am sick of shallow churches who shun the truth, calling the Bible debate “a controversy”! It is THE TRUTH!!! Standing up for the purity and inspiration of God's Word is not “a controversy” you fool, it is THE TRUTH!!! There is no controversy if you believe the inspired King James Bible!!!!!!! By downplaying the truth as being “a controversy,” what PCC's shallow interns are actually saying is: “I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE ATTACK AGAINST GOD'S WORD!” That is why they also don't care about false repentance creeping into their churches! The pastor who doesn't care on one front, won't care on the other either! I care about everything that matters, but a man who doesn't care, doesn't care!
Psalms 69:29-32, “But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high. I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving. This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs. The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.”
People Cannot Be Saved from Corruptible Seed
Someone asked me this week if I think anyone can be saved from reading the New International Version (NIV) if they only read 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 about the Gospel, and don't look at the other Scriptures. That is not a realistic scenario, because we are taught from the Bible itself to take into consideration the whole counsel of God (1st Corinthians 2:13). Isaiah 28:13, “But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.” The answer to the preceding question is “No!” That is, “No, I don't think a person can be saved from corruptible word!!!” The NIV is corruptible word!!! It is not plausible nor reasonable to think that a person will just look at 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 in the NIV, while ignoring the heresy in Mark 1:15 in the modern PERversions. If you take the whole NIV or ERV into consideration, you cannot find the Gospel.
NOTE: It is a dangerous thing to interpret a single passage of Scripture without comparing it to all the other Scriptures. For example: Mark 6:16, “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.” Taken by itself, it seems to teach that water baptism is required for salvation. However, we see this is not the truth if we look at other Scriptures; such as, 1st Corinthians 1:17a, where Paul said, “For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel...” Clearly, water baptism is NOT necessary to be saved, otherwise Paul never would have made that statement. In the Epistle of 1st John, John (the same apostle John who penned the Gospel of John) said that the purpose of his Epistle is so that professed believers can KNOW they are saved (1st John 5:13). Yet, John never mentions baptism even once. And for that matter, John never mentions repentance either. The only requirement to be saved is to see yourself as a guilty sinner in the eyes of a holy God (Romans 3:19), and to BELIEVE the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus' death on the cross for our sins, His burial and bodily resurrection three days later.
With that truth in mind, it becomes quite obvious what is dangerous about the modern Bible PERversions, which teach a false meaning of repentance, which teach Lordship Salvation in Romans 10:9, which leave off the Son of God in Acts 8:37, which leave out the virgin birth from Isaiah 7:14 in the Easy-To-Read Version (ERV), et cetera. I could go on for hours about the deadly corruptions in the modern Bible PERversions!!! Only a woefully ignorant person would even try to defend such wickedness!!! Job 13:7, “Will ye speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him?” Not me buddy!!! I am preaching THE TRUTH. Anyone with a working brain can see that something is VERY WRONG with a church using two different Bible translations, that contradict each other. Check this out, case in point, showing a 100% contradiction between the modern PERversions and the trustworthy King James Bible.
A lot of people e-mail me to ask what I think about a particular church or pastor, and I am glad to tell them. I am honest with people, sometimes too honest, sharing my heart, which sometimes offends them. So be it! 1st Corinthians 15:10, “But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” God, by His wondrous grace, is doing a work through me, as His humble servant. Our churches today are starving for THE TRUTH!!! The modern Bible versions are poisoning the masses. You have to choose sides dear reader on the Holy Bible, you can't use two different Bibles; and if you do, it evidences that you are religious and not godly, and that you have become indifferent, and that you simply don't care about THE TRUTH!!! Thank you for reading this, sincerely. I truly want to be a blessing to others in the Lord, which is my only intent. God bless you if you desire THE TRUTH!

NOBODY IS LAUGHING IN HELL!!!
Did you know that you don't have to ask Jesus to save you? God has already told you how to be saved, that is, by simply believing that His Son died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and raised up from the dead three days later. Christ raised up from the dead, which means that God the Father accepted His Son's payment for the sins of the world. Christ suffered on the cross so that we wouldn't have to suffer in a literal Hell forever. Amen! You don't have to bow your head to be saved. You don't have to pray. You don't have to do anything except believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins, and make that your only hope for Heaven! ~by David J. Stewart

(video sermon by Pastor Danny Castle - You don't want to keep your eye on others, because they'll let you down. They'll hurt you.
And you don't want to keep your eyes on yourself, because you'll feel inadequate, like a loser and a failure. Keep your eyes on Jesus!)
Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.
God will not save anyone who is trying to be saved, He will only save those who are trusting to be saved.
Religion is man trying to reach God
through human effort, but Christianity is
God trying to reach man by the sacrifice of His only begotten Son on the cross.
Luke 11:28, “But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.”
“You can sit there and say, 'Oh, well, you just took it too far. You just took King James onlyism too far!' Well, you know what brother, you can't take it far enough, when they're pushing all these false versions, and all the bookstores, and the Christian bookstores, and all of your big name preachers are all preaching false versions! You know, we need to stand our ground on this issue!!!” —a quote by Pastor Steven Anderson from the awesome MP3 sermon, “Saved By The Word.”

“Salvation is based upon purely what Jesus Christ has done. And if you've trusted Jesus Christ here, you're saved forever!

And there are many people who are confused over this whole thing.” —Pastor Hank Lindstrom (1940-2008), a quote from the classic MP3 sermon titled, “How Permanent Is Your Salvation?”
“There are many people who name the name of Jesus Christ, who are not saved, because they're trusting in living the Christian life, or in their works, or in some efforts that they're doing, in order to obtain their salvation.” —Pastor Hank Lindstrom (1940-2008), a quote from the classic MP3 sermon titled, “How Permanent Is Your Salvation?”
