The Price For Telling The Truth
by David J. Stewart | December 2019
Proverbs 8:7, “For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.”
You know, I've been exposing new-evangelicals for so long, I don't think I can stop. As much as I love the folks at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, it dawned on me the other day that they will never allow me to return to their church, because they are neo-evangelicals! That fueled my preaching this week, and to God be the glory for that! Somebody needs to take a stand for God and truth! Pastor Jack Hyles was a lion of the Christian faith; I am just a dog. What saith the Scripture? Ecclesiastes 9:4, “For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.” Arff! Arff!
I so much want a church family. Like the apostle Paul, humbly, I have been through many hardships, personal loss and inexplicable emotional trauma in my life, even to the point of buying two barbecues to commit suicide in 2009. Obviously, I didn't go through with it. Paul felt the same in 2nd Corinthians 1:8, “For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life:”
In 2013, I attempted to leave Guam, to relocate on my own back to the United States. It turned into a disaster, because in hindsight I didn't really have a plan, and as Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) wisely said: “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” That bad decision cost me $50,000 out of the remaining equity in my home, which I lost (to pay for legal expenses) when my former wife divorced me in 2006 and went her own way. She lives in Illinois today with her family. I have forgiven her, and have no bitterness, but as the Bible-preacher John Wesley (1703-1791) said: “I did not forsake her, I did not dismiss her, I will not recall her.”
Overwhelmed with loneliness in the states, after four months of living out of a suitcase in hotels, I came back to Guam in 2013 with the intent of going to Harvest Baptist Church. I did exactly that! I made friends and felt loved at Harvest. In hindsight, it wasn't God's love the senior pastor expressed toward me before each service, when he came to shake my hand; but rather, he was just being friendly, doing what he thought a good pastor is supposed to do. When I told THE TRUTH in 2014, he dropped me like a hot pancake, and it was the end, to my great dismay. I had just lost my church family! I will tell you more, but first, I want to share with you some more photos from my life...
ABOVE: Me at my grandma's house (my Mom's Mom). She was from Sweden, which you can see in her flags on the Tv, and other knickknacks. That's my baby picture to the far right.
ABOVE: My Mom, Barbara Jean

ABOVE: My Dad, Arnold Leonard
ABOVE: A 'Grace Mission Church' newsletter. The torn down building in the top photo was left undemolished at 34 S. Desplaines in Chicago, lest it cause the north wall of the 'Chicago United Mission' (which my father pastored) to collapse. The torn down building was once the famous 'Legion Hotel' where gangster Al Capone hung out in his hey day. I used to walk around the empty hotel as a kid before it was torn down.
ABOVE: Me at work as an ASE certified truck mechanic on a farm tractor. We used to tow the trucks into the shop with the tractor and a chain around the suspension I-beam. Look at that hair I used to have!!!
ABOVE: Me and Mom.
ABOVE: Me playing a pedal steel guitar. It was my last year of Bible college at Hyles-Anderson College, so you can see all my Division 4, 76-3 Bus Route stuff on the back wall (which the bus workers and kids gave me for my birthday), and a poster from Youth Conference that year with Brother Hyles in the middle. I was in the B Bus Ministry for 7 years, and then worked voluntary in the Church Bus Garage my last year.
I hope you liked seeing those pictures of my life. I love sharing my heart and life with others. I am battle-hardened from all the pain, loss and miseries in my life, so when bad things happen now, and new-evangelicals hurt me more, and churches shun me away, it's just more crap on the pile. “The First Cut Is The Deepest” (as the 1967 song goes). I've learned, as Pastor Jack Hyles learned and taught, that you have to just keep loving and forgiving everyone, because most people won't! Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982) wisely said: You will never know down here that Christ is all you need until Christ is all you have left. Amen, I've been there!
For My Love They Are My Adversaries
Psalms 109:4-5, “For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer. And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.”
I am not the bad guy! Today's shallow ecumenical pastors, who sanction more than one Holy Bible, are the bad guys! If God only authored one inspired Book, then why the hell would anyone want to read two Bibles? Am I missing something here folks? It's common sense. There is one God, Who authored one sacred Book, and when Bob Jones University and Moody Bible Institute come along promoting a dozen Bible versions, I have a problem with that as a born-again Christian!!! And so should you if you love the Lord and hate evil (Psalm 97:10)! Claiming to have more than ONE accurate Bible translation in the English language is evil!
I am lonely each day, and I have lovingly tried my darndest to convince Harvest Baptist Church on Guam (aka, the Bob Jones camp) to receive me (the old Hyles-Anderson camp) back, since 2017, just so I can attend church services. I gave them my promise not to cause trouble, and to befriend them, so I can simply have a church family. They have refused multiple times, even calling Dr. Jack Hyles “a cult” and me their “enemy.” Kindly, we'll see what God has to say about that in eternity! 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.” Will my sayings against Harvest Baptist Church and Bob Jones University be JUSTIFIED? We shall see! WE SHALL SEE! Did God author only one sacred Book? Yes! So how can we have dozens (hundreds in fact) of English Bible versions today? Can you say “SATAN”? Evil is just “Devil” with the “D” knocked off!
My Harvest neighbours wave one day, and then turn their backs against me the next. That is not God's love! Love never faileth. The former pastors of Harvest gave up on me, simply because I did as Dr. Tom Ferrell taught (at their very church)—“A FRIEND HELPS A FRIEND TO SEE!” Proverbs 27:5, “Open rebuke is better than secret love.” My heartfelt articles online about Harvest are open rebuke—Titus 1:13, “This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;” Some arrogant and misled pastors think they are an “authority” in the church, but the ONLY authority in the New Testament Church is the inspired Word of God!!! Every Christian man learned in the Scriptures is commanded to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 1:3b). By God's wondrous grace, I will not SHUT UP!!
As I heard in 2014 on Harvest's KHMG radio station (by the cool lady who used to be there with the Australian accent)—“The Devil wants us to SHUT UP, but God wants us to SPEAK UP!” We'll I am speaking up! I don't just preach against Harvest, I preach again the very church and Bible college that I graduated from, who have betrayed the Word of God, by denying the inspiration of the King James Bible since 2008. By doing so, they have opened a Pandora's Box as the first step toward embracing the Devil's counterfeit Bible versions. You just wait and see 25 years from now, if the Lord tarries His return! Psalms 119:139-141, “My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words. Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it. I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.” If the King James Bible that I hold in my hands is not pure, than the hell with it, because it cannot be inspired if it is corrupted! AH, BUT I KNOW IT IS VERY PURE, as God promised in Psalms 12:6-7 (which all the modern Bible corrupt and remove in a wicked attempt to justify having 339 different PERversions).
Respectfully, I do believe that pastors are worthy of “double honour,” but that means they are also worthy of DOUBLE-DISHONOUR when they are wrong! 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.” I labor in the Word and doctrine, but if there is any honor, I pass it on to the Lord! I was very blessed to have awesome Bible teachers, like Pastor Jack Hyles! There are believers who fully support their woefully ignorant Baptist pastor (who actually teaches that the earth is flat), because they love him and don't want to embarrass him. That deters a lot of people from coming to the Gospel, seeing that a preacher could be so naive. Pastor David Hoffman teaches that the earth is flat! Kindly, Mr. Hoffman is a fool of fools! The guy ought to be fired for theological incompetence!!! Furthermore, these apostate pastors today who sanction two different Bible versions (let alone DOZENS) are no better than the loony flat-earth cult! Folks, the earth is not flat, it is a sphere; and God only authored one Bible, which means there can only be one accurate English Bible!!!!!!!
“You say, 'You shouldn't talk trash about other churches!' Well, if they'd stop being trash, I'd stop talking trash!” (a truthful quote by Pastor Steven L. Anderson, from the classic sermon titled, “Queer Sounding Music And Skinny Jeans” - Time 1:07:50)
Have you ever noticed that every time an ungodly greedy publisher announces another “new” Bible version, they always claim that theirs is the most accurate? Here's a classic example of their LIES. The demonic 'New International Version' (NIV) claims to be ACCURATE...
Decades after the vision was cast, the New International Version (NIV) has become one of the most widely read Bible translations in contemporary English. That’s because the NIV delivers the very best combination of accuracy and readability. It’s true to God’s Word and true to the reader.
Accurate? The NIV removes or changes over 64,000 words compared to the King James Bible!!! These modern Bible translations ain't accurate Bubba! Not even close!!! I wish I could get the Bob Jones camp to understand the seriousness of this matter, and the Hyles-Anderson camp too for that matter. With the ever-changing Bible translations, and the rash of new Bibles flooding into the churches year after year, it has caused religious people to take an indifferent, complacent and lackadaisical attitude toward theology in the churches. Proof of what I say is that the average churchgoer today cannot discern the dozens of corruptions being propagated in religious tracts concerning the Gospel. Pastor Jack Hyles exposes several of these unbiblical ADDITIONS to the Gospel in this great classic sermon...
'FUNDAMENTAL HERESY' (Pastor Jack Hyles exposes several counterfeit plans of salvation. GREAT TRUTH!)
I meant what I said about removing my preaching from the internet about Harvest, but I need a church family. If they don't, I love them no matter what, and that is between them and the Lord, I will survive. I am used to being alone, without a wife for companionship, lonely, tired, burning nerves, in bodily pain, despised and rejected of men for telling THE TRUTH; but I have the joy of the Lord, as peace like a river, knowing I am on the side of TRUTH, and that my name is forever recorded in Heaven as a redeemed child of God!
You know, I get so lonely that when one of my Harvest neighbours stays home from church, and I see their car parked in front, I feel happy that I am not alone. They won't let me come to church. They are my brothers and sisters in the Lord, and I need them; but they don't need me, nor do they care, and it is a heavy burden for me to be ostracized by the folks at Harvest Baptist Church. What was my crime? I simply tried to help them as a friend in 2014, and I have been banned since. The excellent fundamental books and sermons I gave them offended their pastors. How do you think the Lord feels about that? I think you already know. James 4:6, “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.” I am willing to make things rights, whatever it takes, but Harvest won't have anything to do with me. So who is proud, and who is humble? God knows I am humble.
I thank God for Pastor Bob Gray Sr., who wisely said:
“The best thing in the world to do is stay behind truth. I don't care how much it hurts. I don't care how much pain it is. Or how much the kids don't like it, or anybody don't like it—YOU STAY BEHIND TRUTH!!! Why? Cause it's right! And it'll protect you! And if the leader goes down, the followers are gonna follow...” —Dr. Bob Gray Sr., a quote from the sermon, Truth Vs. Change.
God knows that I sincerely love the folks at Harvest Baptist Church (including their former pastors who bailed ship and fled to Iowa to milk the money cow there instead), but I LOVE THE TRUTH mostly, because it is right (as Brother Gray rightly said in the preceding sermon quote). I don't think I am a good Christian, but my goal is not to be a good Christian, it is to please God and get the job done which He has given to me to do, which is soulwinning and preaching THE TRUTH. I heard Dr. Hyles say something once in a sermon that really encouraged me: “Some of the worst Christians do the most for God!” Amen, there's hope for me after all! Yea, I'm not a loser! Oh wait, I am a loser, but God can still use losers! Cool. I am not always as patient as I should be, but I am trying, with the Lord's help (Galatians 2:20).
Kindly, I feel like I have cast my pearl before the swine, to have my heart trampled upon, when I tell the truth and am shunned because of it. That's how Jesus felt too (John 8:40-45). I have little patience with the neo-evangelical camp, because they knowingly reject THE TRUTH (Hosea 4:6). I guess I'll never be accepted at the local independent Baptist church, but I KNOW I am in the right, because I am telling THE TRUTH. Neo-evangelicals tend to follow mainstream apostate evangelicalism in the United States. They tend to follow the trends, like the ungodly LGBTQ agenda, because “THE TREND IS YOUR FRIEND” if you merely want to shamefully be accepted and go along to get along with ministry peers! The fighting fundamentalist (like me) says: “To Hell with all of you, I'm siding with THE TRUTH!!!” 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.”
I admittedly am an intense person in my feelings, which is who I am, whom God made me to be. That is why my writings are intense. I like who God made me. That is why I love music so much, because it is a form of expression. That is why I don't (nor would I ever) own a gun. I don't trust myself with one, and they terrify me! That is why I don't drink booze, because I know I would get drunk, to escape my pain and sorrows. God expresses Himself through nature (Psalms 19:1-3). God expresses Himself through His inspired Word (2nd Timothy 3:16-17). I am always looking for God in everything! As our Creator, the Lord's greatness can be seen in everything. Psalm 145:3, “Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.” Don't try to understand God, because you cannot; no one can!
I am in love with a young lady at their church (since 2017), which my regular readers already know. As far as I can tell, she is not interested, and that makes me feel sad; rejection hurts! Still, I keep hoping that she will see something in me, and I pray every day for her (and FOR her), and she has my heart. But if not, all is fine in the Lord. I am happy when I see her, and sad when she leaves. That is a normal part of being in love. I sometimes hate being a preacher. I feel like abandoning my beliefs and preaching, so maybe then a woman will like and marry me. But I know that is a wrong way to think, so I hang in there and am lonely. I don't like being a jerk for Jesus (at least that's how people see me). I sometimes feel like just buying a plane ticket to North Carolina, and calling DeWitt movers to put all my junk into storage, and just get the hell out of here! Perhaps one day I will do that, when I am tired enough, and I will start my life over, as Pastor Danny Castle preaches. I wish I could marry the young woman I am in love with, and we could move to North Carolina together, and join a soulwinning church. It's okay to dream, right?
How to Frustrate Yourself—Try to Make a Neo-Evangelical Care!
They just don't care at Harvest Baptist Church, plain and simple. I went walking this morning, prayed for all my web visitors and made my usual supplications to the Lord, ran by the gas station (actually I drove...lol) and stopped at the grocery store, and then came home to check my ministry e-mails. Then I felt sad, thinking about how much I wish the folks at Harvest would talk with me, so we could make peace and work things out, but then the Lord's Holy Spirit spoke to my soul, saying:
“David, my son, they don't care at Harvest. That is why they are in the mess that they are today. That is why Doug and Karen left. That is why Carl and Peggy left. That is why you left. That is why even their pastors quit, abandoning a sinking ship! David, I know you love them and want so much to be a part of their family, but they don't want you, plain and simple. They don't love you, because they don't truly love me! If they don't care about the purity of My Words, do you think they care about your words? If they don't care about the accuracy of My Gospel, do you think they care about you? You need to let go David, and leave them to My judgment. They're not getting away with anything, I promise! I am proud of you David, because you keep going in your bodily pain and afflictions, proudly displaying My Son's name on your hat everywhere you go to honor Him (and in so doing you honor Me); but moreover, you honor My Son by telling THE TRUTH—contending for the Christian faith, exalting the incorruptible inspired King James Bible, and defending the SIMPLICITY of salvation that is by grace through faith alone in My beloved only begotten Son, Jesus—Hang in there My adopted son, for I am with you always!”
I know as sure as I am saved that I have done the right thing to share THE TRUTH with the pastors of Harvest, but they wickedly rejected it. They continue to promote Martin Luther (1483-1546) as a great hero of Christianity, who is considered by even Roman Catholics as the father of the Baptismal Regeneration heresy. Like shameful Bob Jones University, Harvest continues to use, sell and promote the Devil's corruptible seed. You cannot reason with these people, for they are new-evangelicals and hellbent on following apostate modern scholars (Professor Know-It-All and Dr. Fat Bottom) instead of the leading of God's Holy Spirit. Anyone who loves the Lord and has spiritual discernment knows that the King James Bible is the genuine inspired Word of God, and ALL other Bible translations that either come from, or use notes to refer to, the Alexandrian manuscripts from Westcott and Hort are of the Devil.
I'm probably the only guy in America who is begging to go to church. Think about that! Wow, I feel special...lol. I admit that I have a sharp tongue, and I am harsh with my words at times in my preaching. What saith the Scripture? 2nd Corinthians 11:6, “But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.” You don't have to be an apostle to proclaim THE TRUTH!!! If anybody reading this loves me and cares, I sure could use your prayers, for God to give me wisdom to figure out my next step in life, and the courage to follow through, being all alone. I have been thinking about moving to North Carolina for a long time, to a smaller town, like Statesville or Winston-Salem. I'd stay on Guam if I met a Christian wife, and she wanted to stay here. I can work on my ministry online from anywhere, which is cool. I am waiting to see where my present situation is headed. God works in mysterious ways! I need a church family, where I feel like I belong. I read that nearly HALF of Americans feel lonely. Well great fluffy biscuits in the morning, what D'Ya know?
It is my earnest desire to find a Christian wife that has compelled my spirit to preach against the apostasy at Harvest, since they have banned me from attending church services, because I faithfully told THE TRUTH for God; but perhaps God did all this, as He did with Samson, for His glory...Judges 14:1-4, “And Samson went down to Timnath, and saw a woman in Timnath of the daughters of the Philistines. And he came up, and told his father and his mother, and said, I have seen a woman in Timnath of the daughters of the Philistines: now therefore get her for me to wife. 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.”I agree with Mrs. Beverly Hyles (1929-2017), who said: “Everything happens for a reason!” Or maybe I'm just crazy! I'm sure my critics would choose that latter option. Hey, it's okay to be a nut, just so long as you're screwed onto the right bolt! THAT BOLT IS THE KING JAMES BIBLE!!! I've been hurt too much in my life to care anymore what people think; God's opinion is the only one that matters! I am as narrow-minded as the King James Bible!!! These phony Christians who are loyal to bad pastors, and gang up on people like me for critiquing them, won't have a leg to stand on when they stand before a holy God, for cowardice. ...
“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?”
God is no respecter of persons. Just because some pompous stuff-shirt pastor with his collar on backwards is employed to a salaried position in a church somewhere, doesn't give him special privileges against being exposed as a false prophet if he promotes 13 Bible versions and a corrupted plan of salvation!!! SOMEBODY'S GOT TO CARE!!!
I LOVE EVERYONE WITH GOD'S UNCONDITIONAL LOVE!!! Enough said. I have been frustrated that despite all my sincerest efforts to reach out to Harvest since 2017, there is no lifeline for a hurting brother in the Lord. Romans 14:10, “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.” The Bible foretold of “unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith.” Something is wrong with the alleged Christian “FAITH” of a church that kills its wounded.
You know, I have a different way of looking at things from most people, because I have God's wisdom (I humbly think), and the majority of Baptist churches today have the world's wisdom. If I believed WRONG, and a sincere fella like me came along and shewed me what was RIGHT to help me, I would be grateful. Proverb 9:8, “Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.” I sincerely believe that God sent me as a BLESSING to Harvest Baptist Church, to help them see THE TRUTH! When I humbly told that to one of their associate pastors in 2015, he arrogantly laughed in my face in sarcasm. That is not the way of Christ. Any clergy who thinks Dr. Jack Hyles and Pastor Al Lacy were in “a cult” for preaching the exclusivity of the King James Bible, ought not be pastors! It is amazing to me, that not one pastor in the world believes God authored TWO Bibles, yet they insanely think God's inspired PURE WORDS have been preserved in hundreds of English Bible versions to sort through!
When I offered that same associate pastor of Harvest a hardcopy (that I had purchased with my own money) of the awesome book titled: “NIV: THE ANTICHRIST'S BIBLE” by Pastor Al Lacy (1933-2016), he again laughed in my face and refused to take it. He literally put his hands up in the air, as if I were handing him something illegal or dangerous. Why should I respect such ungodly religious leaders, who blatantly refuse THE TRUTH? I am a nobody, a sinner saved by grace; but God has been good to give me a hunger for THE TRUTH. I tell you, these modern Bible versions are of the Devil. Brother Lester Roloff knew it. I heard him exposing the Revised Standard Version (RSV) today, in his sermon called: “If I Had My Life To Live Over.” Brother Roloff knew the score! What is wrong with most pastors today, that they choose to languish in mediocrity and the land of apostasy? Whatever religious devotions they have each day, I know that they do not walk with God, for if they did they would LOVE THE TRUTH! John 4:24, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
God willing, if and when I do move on with the life God has entrusted to me, they will have failed the test from God at Harvest (I humbly believe they are being tested by the Lord), and it will be too late to do the right thing, but I have the blessed peace of God in my soul that I have loved them unconditionally (and will continue to do so). I wish they could know my heart. My hard-preaching in no way reflects how I feel about them personally. God knows that I love them all dearly, and would help any of them given the opportunity. This all happened (our falling out) because I told THE TRUTH. My neck pain is a constant burden hanging over my life. My neck pain isn't bad enough to keep me from enjoying life, but it is bad enough to keep me from enjoying life. If you live in constant bodily pain, then you completely understand what I just said. I love you all with God's love. 1st Corinthians 16:24, “My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.”
