Evil Promoted By The Bob Jones University Crowd

Revelation 22:19, “And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”
I wrote this article to bring attention to the spiritual disease in our churches today of INDIFFERENCE!!! Most pastors are shamefully going along to get along with apostate mainstream evangelical circles, avoiding the controversial Bible version debate, lest they become theological outcastes and be labeled as being in that dreaded “King James Bible only cult!” Brother, I would 10,000 times rather be in some alleged King James Bible only cult than to unwittingly be sucked into using and supporting an occult Bible version translated by occultists for Satan. Awake to righteousness! I speak this to your shame! 1st Corinthians 15:34, “Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.”
“I've been preaching a long time, and I've watched a lot of things happen. To me the saddest thing that I've watched in my life, apart from my own country going to the Devil nearly, has been the change of preachers and churches. I find myself amazed and stunned with near disbelief, as I see men who once stood who don't stand anymore ... I know every week I cry some, I mean cry, I mean tear cry, because of preachers who are turning.”

You can identify today's spiritually lifeless churches by the lack of hard-preaching from the pulpit. You can spot these lukewarm churches by the woeful absence of aggressively contending for the faith. Brother, if people don't think you're crazy, you're not living right for God. Most churches today have spiritually malnourished members. Good luck finding a soul-winning program of any sort. You likely won't hear any preaching that warns sinners of imminent Hell, fire and damnation. We've got a bunch of wimpy churches today!!!

Bible Corrupters Remove the Word “Worshipped”
Many of the modern perversions of God's Word remove the word “worshipped” and replace it with the word “knelt.” This is evil and blasphemous against the Lord Jesus Christ. There is a world of difference between the words “knelt” and “worshipped.” A person can kneel before a king without worshipping him, but to worship someone signifies deity. People foolishly bow in worship to the Pope or various statues of saints or Mother Mary. This is idolatry because God has forbidden us from worshipping (or even bowing) to such objects (Exodus 20:3-5). Keep in mind the even “bowing” is a sin. Catholics who deny that they are praying to (or worshipping) Mary are still in grievous violation of Exodus 20:5 for bowing to Mary. To no surprise, Catholic leaders in their official Catechism have completely removed the second of the Ten Commandments and have split the ninth commandment into two separate commands to make up for it. This is blatant evil. The Vatican has perverted the Truth of God's Word and is now trying to hide their evil. It is a sin to worship statues of saints. It is a sin to bow in praise of the Pope or any priests. Just as Meshach, Shadrach, and Abednego refused to bow to Nebuchadnezzar's golden image (Daniel 3:18), so should we refuse to bow to the idols and arrogant imposters of Roman Catholicism.
“There was a football coach one time of a professional football team. He was speaking of the difference between average professional football players and champions. He said, 'All pro football players do about 75% of what is expected of them.' He said, 'They that do the other 25%, become the champions!'
And what he was saying was, If all you do is just what you have to, to get by, you're going to be a average, so-so, Christian; but he said people that really do something for God are those that go the extra mile. Watch—you know anybody that God uses—it ain't because of their talent—There's a lot of talented people who God don't use—It's because they are dedicated in such a way that they give a extra effort that other people don't give.”

All Modern Bible Versions are Corrupt!
Why would anyone remove the word “worshipped” concerning our Creator, Lord, and Saviour? The answer can only be rooted in Satan. To no surprise the NIV also removes the name “Jesus” (the name above every other name, Philippians 2:9) from 38 places in the New Testament. I am amazed that so many professed Christians are still blind to the work of the Devil in all of the modern versions. There have been over 200 new versions in the past few decades alone. Only a complete fool would add or subtract from God's Word for any reason.
If you don't have a 1611 King James Bible, then you DON'T have a Bible!!!
Folks, the end time's come. The field is white, the laborers are few. We have the greatest opportunity of any generation, that ever lived, to reach desperate souls for the Lord Jesus Christ! —Brother Lester Roloff, from the classic MP3 sermon, “JESUS IS LORD!!!”
Just As In Jesus' Day, the Religious Crowd Refuses to Worship Jesus
The Word of God plainly teaches that Jesus was worshipped by people from all walks of life, all except the religious leaders. Isn't it interesting that lepers and demon possessed people ran to Jesus' feet in worship, while the arrogant self-righteous religious leaders sought to kill Him. Nothing has changed. It's the religious Bible corrupting crowd that is doing more damage to the name of Christ than any other group today. I'd expect to see godless magazines endorsing Harry Potter's witchcraft, but I wanted to vomit when I found out that Christianity Today endorses Harry Potter's witchcraft. God's biggest enemies today are RELIGIOUS people; most of whom do not know God (“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away,” 2nd Timothy 3:5). Just as the Pharisees of Jesus' day are burning in the fires of Hell today, so will the godless religious leaders of today be burning in the fires of Hell tomorrow.
“When I hit the devil square in the face some people go away as mad as if I had slapped them in the mouth.” —Billy Sunday
When Jesus was born, Babylonian wise men came from the East to worship the Saviour. You would have thought that the religious leaders would have gone to see Jesus, but instead they informed Herod of the whereabouts of the little Baby Jesus so Jesus could be murdered. The religious leaders knew where Christ was to be born, but they could have cared less and didn't go. Isn't this just like the religious world today? They claim the name of Christ, but their hearts are so far away from God. This world is filled with all sorts of religious people who practice their ceremonial rituals and sacraments, but they have never come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2nd Timothy 3:7). They have religion without Truth, Churchianity without Christianity. Jesus said in John 4:24 that God can only be worshipped in TRUTH, not heresy. This is why Jesus said in Mark 7:7, “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Oh, don't be a fool my friend, turn to Jesus Christ now in belief, asking Him to forgive all your sins and to save you from Hell. Once you're saved, study and learn the 1611 King James Bible, and worship Jesus!!!
The average church today is a disgrace because pastors are shallow. The Methodist Man of God, Pastor E.M. Bounds (1835-1913), in his classic book titled: “POWER THROUGH PRAYER” rightly said:
“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.” —Pastor E.M. Bounds, “Power Through Prayer,” p. 5
“A Church rarely revolts against or rises above the religion of its leaders.” —Pastor E.M. Bounds, “Power Through Prayer,” p. 50
These are incredibly indicting statements against today's ecumenical movement in America. Pastor Bounds is so right! A sermon cannot rise in its life-giving forces above the man! Everything depends on the spiritual character of the preacher. A CHURCH RARELY RISES ABOVE THE RELIGION OF ITS LEADERS!!! When church pastors sanction dozens of Bible versions, they are incompetent clergy. Sadly, most churches today promote multiple Bible versions, which helps the Devil confuse the flock, diminish Bible theology, and obscure the Word of God. Pastors don't preach anymore, they deliver sermonettes! Dead ministers cannot produce spiritual Christians! That is why ecumenical churches never repent and go back to their first love. They do not care as they ought. The truth means little to them. Pastors have become apostate, indifferent, complacent, foolish and arrogant. Woe unto America's pastors.
Jeremiah 10:21, “For the pastors are become brutish, and have not sought the LORD: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered.” The word “brutish” means that the pastors lack good sense, they've gone insane! A pastor would have to lack good sense to support multiple English Bible translations that contradict each other! Anybody who supports, teaches or promotes the heresy of Lordship Salvation is woefully ignorant of the plainest teaching of God's Word. The Gospel of John is God's Gospel tract. John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” There is no mention of making Jesus one's “Lord” to be saved in the book of John! You don't make Jesus Lord, HE IS LORD! Whether a believer obeys Jesus as Lord is a matter of discipleship, and not salvation.
“Now you listen to me folks! We're living in a world of compromising Christianity. I call it—'The yuppie generation building yuppie churches!' Brother, we need the old-time Gospel, the old-time religion, the faith of our fathers, and the standards that America used to have!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “She Sojourned For Seven Years”
Banned from an Independent Baptist Church for Telling the Truth
For me, speaking-up is tied together with caring. The more one cares, the more compelled we will be to speak up! Ironically, I learned on Harvest Baptist Church's KHMG radio station on Guam the following life-changing truth: “Satan wants us to SHUT UP, but God wants us to SPEAK UP!” So I am speaking up. The pastors of Harvest are good men (as far as good men go), but are not godly men. If they were godly, they would care about truth (John 4:24). I love what Pastor Steven Anderson said (who is a man of God)...
“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.”
I made this funny clip called: “I'm As Mad As Hell,” combining audio from the 1976 movie “The Network” and one of Pastor Jack Hyles' sermons. In his sermon, Dr. Hyles says when he dies, if the next pastor doesn't preach sound doctrine, FIRE HIM! Dr. Hyles says to GET UP AND WALK OUT THE DOOR! Amen and amen! There is a horrible philosophy floating around in the churches that says when a pastor teaches lies and heresy, that other Christians ought to mind their own business, say nothing, and let it be. That is evil! Ephesians 5:10-11, “Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” What saith the Scripture? Titus 1:10-14, “For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.” Dear reader, any Baptist church that teaches Lordship Salvation is of the Devil. I SAID THEY ARE OF THE DEVIL!!! Lordship Salvation is not the Gospel of free grace. You don't receive Jesus as your Lord to be saved, you receive Him only as your SAVIOR!!!
Only God can make a person care. One of the Lord's duties is to bring the proud low. Job 40:12, “Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.” By writing to them, they are now accountable to God. John 15:22, “If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.” The pastors and people at Harvest Baptist Church won't be able to claim ignorance at the Judgment Seat of Christ, when they are required to give account for promoting corruptible seed and a counterfeit gospel, because I was a friend to them to try to help them, by giving them THE TRUTH.
I want to go to church so much, that I would remove everything from the internet about Harvest, just to be nice, and love them “AS IS,” if they would simply let me come back. They are holding a grudge in their immaturity. I gave my word to the pastors in 2017 that if they gave me a second chance, I would do whatever they required to make things right, and not be a root of bitterness in the church. They won't budge. Truly, I am casting my pearl before the swine. My heart is torn between desiring a church family (imperfect as they may be), and standing for the truth (which God expects of us as believers - Ephesians 5:11; Titus 1:10-13; 2nd John 1:10-11). Since I am telling THE TRUTH, I know God is on my side (Romans 4:3). Harvest uses, sells and promotes corruptible seed, and they sanction and promote ungodly false prophets like John MacArthur, Paul Washer and Ray Comfort, who teach the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation. Harvest has spiritual blood on their hands!
I sincerely believe that God is working through my voice, and perhaps may have even created this situation to raise awareness of the issues. Samson's parents hated that he wanted to marry a Philistine woman, but the Bible says they “knew not that it was of the Lord.” Judges 14:3-4, “Then his father and his mother said unto him, Is there never a woman among the daughters of thy brethren, or among all my people, that thou goest to take a wife of the uncircumcised Philistines? And Samson said unto his father, Get her for me; for she pleaseth me well. But his father and his mother knew not that it was of the LORD, that he sought an occasion against the Philistines: for at that time the Philistines had dominion over Israel.”
Perhaps for such a time as this (as queen Esther said), God has raised me up to speak the truth. What saith the Scripture? 1st Corinthians 11:19, “For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.” I was amazed when I read that Scripture for the first time. The Bible says that we NEED HERETICS, so that approved Bible teachers can be made manifest. Wow! Think about it, when Ray Comfort teaches his Calvinist heresy, it gives truth-tellers a chance to expose him as a false prophet and to preach THE TRUTH! I love that truth. Since Harvest is pulling on the same rope as the Devil, any born-again believer has a right to refute them for it.
