A Shameful Type Of Pastor
By David J. Stewart | November 2014
12:10, “Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden
my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.”
I love preachers who actually preach. Unfortunately that excludes most Bible colleges and churches today, including Independent Baptists. I've never heard such lame, pathetic, milquetoast, pantywaist, wimpy, sermonettes in my life. Their religious circle (camp) has some great orators, missionaries and teachers; but you'll have to look long and hard to find one that knows how to pound a pulpit, cry aloud and preach with any passion. The Devil wants to take our young people and con them into living the Christian life without ever being born-again. And if they are saved, then Satan wants to get them to spend their life being good instead of doing good. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born again.
Brother Lester Roloff is correct that we've let the superficial take the place of the supernatural in our churches. For most Christians the week-end has now become the “wicked-end.”
Please listen to the sermon, “I'D RATHER SERVE JESUS” (MP3, Brother Roloff; exposing neo-evangelicalism and apostasy).
Please listen to the life-changing MP3 sermon by Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) titled, “WHICH NEW IS RIGHT.”
I love preachers who stand for the truth. I love pastors who watch over God's flock. I love ministers who are truly servants, for “he that is greatest among you shall be your servant” (Matthew 23:11). Jesus told Peter to “feed my sheep” (John 21:17). A pastor is a shepherd. The holy Bible likens people to sheep, because we have all gone astray from God (Isaiah 53:6). It is in our sinful human nature to wander astray from right, truth and morality. This is why we all need regular preaching, to help us think straight. A pastor's main duty is to lead God's sheep with the Word of God, the holy Scriptures. A pastor ought to continually point his people to Jesus Christ and the uncorrupted King James Bible.
It is shameful that most pastors today are merely going along to get along with apostate mainstream evangelicalism. If you don't have a King James Bible, you don't have a Holy Bible. All of the modern Bible versions are corrupt!!! There's a big difference between a church not being perfect, verses a church that doesn't want to be perfect.
I'm tired of pastors who hypocritically claim to love, desire and and proclaim TRUTH from the pulpit; but then when you hand them the truth, like Dr. Al Lacy's excellent book titled, “NIV: the Antichrist's Bible,” then they freak out and run for cover. I gave that book exposing modern corrupt Bible versions to an Independent Baptist pastor (a graduate of Northland Baptist Bible College) and he warned me to stop handing the book out to others in the church, or else be asked to leave. Really great pastor huh? I say that kindly. In the pulpit he says that he wants truth, but in reality he rejects it. I think truth is important. Do you? Jesus did! John 18:37, “Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.” I am of the truth!
I've noticed that it is extremely rare for a pastor to go against the theological group that he's been hanging with. For example: If a pastor is a Moody graduate, he is very unlikely to ever go against that camp. The same is true of the Bob Jones University camp. I'm fully aware of the Apostle Paul's rebuke of church cliques in 1st Corinthians chapter 1, where some said they were of Apollos, and others of Cephas, et cetera. Yet, the reality of the matter is that most preachers are affiliated with a group, having some religious institution as their headquarters. It's really the hindquarters! I serve God, period. I am going to follow the inspired Words of God in the Holy Bible. I'm going to stand for God, regardless of whose toes get stepped on and whose wings get clipped. Tragically, many pastors today are following John MacArthur, Rick Warren, Billy Graham and Max Lucado into total ecumenical apostasy! All of the names I just mentioned make millions-of-dollars personally from their so-called “ministries.”
A pastor becomes shameful when he begins using a corrupted Bible version that perverts the Words of God, or a pastor who frequently travels and neglects to be in his own pulpit where he belongs, or a pastor who cancels church services on secular holidays, or a pastor who never preaches against sin or false religions by name, or a pastor who listens to gossip and meddles in personal matters that don't concern him, et cetera. Spiritual Growth (MP3 by Pastor Castle, “There's so much junk being taught today in churches!”).

The Shame of Using a Homosexual Friendly Version of the Bible
It is tragic that so many pastors today have abandoned the trustworthy King James Bible, and are instead using the New International Version (NIV), which was butchered by a homosexual that was appointed as chairman of the Old Testament translating committee. If you are using an NIV, you have a homosexual-endorsed Bible. Gays support the NIV, but reject the King James Bible! Whereas the King James Bible condemns the sin of homosexuality by calling gays “SODOMITES” (thus associating the sin of homosexuality with the fiery judgment of God which totally destroyed Sodom), the translators of the New International Version totally removes the word “sodomite.” Instead of being called sodomites, which includes millions of homosexual Americans today in 2014, the NIV changes the word to “temple prostitutes,” which would hardly apply to anyone. God said what He meant and meant what He said. The lascivious mob of homosexuals in Genesis 19:1-20 were not temple prostitutes, they were effeminate, violent, lascivious, ungodly, queers!
Here are some practical words of wisdom from Pastor Jack Hyles' great book, SALVATION IS MORE THAN BEING SAVED . . .
If you want a carnal church program which appeals to the flesh, you will have no problem finding that. Of course, the dangerous thing here is that the decisions that affect us for life and eternity are often made because our appetites are carnal. For example, we choose a church because it is friendly, because we like the choir, because the preacher has a good vocabulary, with little or no thought about the power of the Holy Spirit in the services or the zeal for souls or the standards of separation, In other words, we choose an institution that is going to affect our entire lives and, yes, our eternity, on the basis of satisfying our carnal appetites.

The Devil doesn't go after the wimpy, compromised, milquetoast, cowardly and silent ministers who don't preach the Word of God. No, rather, the Devil always goes after the guy who's making the biggest difference, the guy making the noise and rocking the boat! Satan goes after the soul-winner! Satan goes after the spiritually active Christian who's faithfully serving God.
Praise God, I'm a die-hard, dot your i's, cross your t's, Independent Fundamental Baptist and proud of it. New-evangelical pastors are destroying Christianity in America! Jeremiah 6:16, “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.”

So Much The More As Ye See The Day Approaching
(MP3 by Dr. Jack Hyles)
(We ought to work even harder as we see the end years of our life approaching)
“You show me a person to whom Heaven becomes real, and this Book becomes real, and God becomes real, and Hell becomes real, and salvation becomes real, and I'll show you a person that will so much the more serve God as he sees the day approaching!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, a quote from the awesome MP3 sermon titled, “So Much The More As Ye See The Day Approaching.”
Matthew 9:37-38, “Then saith he unto his disciples, The
harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers
are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.”
