Why 'Harvest Baptist Church'
On Guam Really
Discourages Me As a Caring and Humble Christian!
By David J. Stewart | May 2018
Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”
The fastest way to get kicked out of a Baptist church in these apostate times is to simply take a stand for THE TRUTH. I had gladly attended Harvest Baptist Church (HBC) on Guam for a year in 2014. I loved the people and they captured my heart. My name was put on their weekly prayer list for my chronic neck pain. I felt loved. I felt happy and part of a church family. I hadn't been so happy in a long time, but then I made a fatal mistake—I TOLD THE TRUTH as a friend, trying to be helpful, and I was ostracized and they turned against me. Here's my painful personal story, if you'd like to read it (called “LET GO, LET GOD”!).
I was told one painful Wednesday night in November of 2014 that I am no longer welcomed at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, because of the nature of the Christian books and sermons that I had been passing out in the church to help others. I left in uncontrollable tears. The church gave up on me! Obviously, they're only fundamental in name, not practice. The truth is that they have become new-evangelical. I have a desire to do more than just fill 18-inches of pew three time a week, but to do as much as I can, as often as I can, when I can, where I can, any way I can, to get the truth into people's hands to help them grow in the Lord. I am contending for the Christian faith (Jude 1:3). I never thought that THE TRUTH would offend an independent Baptist church!!!
The pastors are typical shameful graduates of apostate Bob Jones University (BJU). ...
How Today's Bible Colleges Woefully Deceive Everyone (the words of the Lord are very pure!)
It is a crying shame that when someone like me (who is excited about spreading the truth) is scolded and hindered by a professed Independent Fundamental Baptist church from doing so. Go figure! I prayerfully know that they will weep bitter tears in eternity at the Judgment Seat of Christ (2nd Corinthians 5:9-11). The truth is important, so important that it should trump everything else. Most Baptist churches today are sinfully indifferent concerning the integrity of the Scriptures. All I've ever wanted is to help others in the Lord. The Lord Himself warned that NO MAN can serve God and mammon (a salary). Luke 16:13, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” When salaries mean more to a church's pastors and staff than THE TRUTH, then you are serving mammon and not God!!!
Woe unto Bob Jones University (BJU) for denying the inspiration of the King James Bible, and for supporting corruptible seed. Please listen to the best MP3 sermon you'll ever hear on the subject, preached in 1994 by Pastor Jack Hyles (1926, 2001) titled, “THE BATTLE OF THE AGES!” I have been so discouraged by Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, because I needed them but they didn't need me, and I gave my heart, money and soul away to others at the church in God's love for the year I was there in 2014, and I was excited to share THE TRUTH of the free Gospel of grace (they teach Lordship Salvation) and the Word of God (they use the Satanic Easy-To-Read Version) with everyone I could; consequently, I was called “a cult” (along with Dr. Jack Hyles over the King James Bible debate) and forced out of my HBC church family, abandoned by Harvest and when I tried in loneliness and desperation to go back in 2017, I was cold-heartedly told by the senior and associate pastors to “go elsewhere”!
Well, I have nowhere else to go and don't go to church anymore, but that's on them! I know what loneliness feels like. I know what rejection by my Christian peers feels like! My wife divorced me in 2006 and I have lived along for 12 years. I was hoping to find a Christian wife at Harvest, but they couldn't care less about me, nor what happens to me.
Kindly, there was a man named Ben Fieldhouse who once attended Harvest Baptist Church. He had some marriage problems, which you can read online. Ben was a member of Harvest. When his marriage problems turned legal, he went and commit suicide in 2010. They didn't find his bodily remains until 2 years later in 2012, on the cliffline at Ritidian Point on Guam. My heart goes out to Ben. He was only 49 years old; I am now 51. Ben was 5' 6"; I am 5' 7". Ben was 140 pounds; I am 150 pounds. Ben loved walking; I love walking. Ben was Caucasian; I am Caucasian. I cannot help wonder if Ben felt unloved by Harvest Baptist Church like I do. I mean, he was a member of their church family; but in his darkest hour of life he went and killed himself. Was there not one person at HBC that he could reach out to for help? I guess not, just like me. I'm just a nobody to Harvest's pastors and staff, just a troublemaker, a nuisance, a sinner that should just disappear like Ben.
You know, the ministry is about loving and helping people, not salaries and growing the church. I once heard the senior pastor say they are interested in obeying, not growing. That's sounds good, but if he really meant what he said, then he would care about his hurting Christian brother, and not set me at nought. 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 Only Reward Many Pastors Will Receive is Their Earthly Paycheck
That same pastor just got a golden parachute out of Guam, to become the executive vice-president of some deeper-life, dried-up, dead, Bible college and theological seminary in Iowa. I checked online to see how much money he'll be making ($80,000 to $200,000 a year). It is disgusting! He's getting rewarded for dropping the ball for God—for promoting Satanic Bible versions, for promoting the Satanic Calvinism (aka, Lordship Salvation) of Dr. John MacArthur, for shunning away the truth, for prioritizing music programs over Bible-preaching, for being lukewarm and wishy-washy at every turn!!!
The whole Bob Jones camp today stinks with apostasy, more concerned about penny-whistles than they are the inspiration of God's Word!!! I still love the Harvest Baptist Church family (dearly), many of whom have moved on to greener pastures, and I will always love them; but my heart is broken and I have never felt so discouraged in the Lord since being driven out of their church in 2014, simply for TELLING THE 100% TRUTH about the Gospel of free grace, refuting the heresy of Lordship Salvation, and exposing the Satanic Alexandrian-based Bible perversions!!!!!!!
HBC promotes reprobate ministers' Paul Washer, Ray Comfort and and John MacArthur! Look at this garbage that Ray Comfort tells this poor woman on an airplane, hindering her from getting saved!!! Harvest promotes and honors Ray Comfort, sinfully bidding Ray Godspeed and being partaker of his evil deeds. Harvest is a big ministry, having their Harvest Baptist Academy with 1,000 students. Someone needs to take a stand for God! The truth matters! God authored ONE BOOK, not two, not 39, not 900 versions!!! Lordship Salvation is NOT the Gospel, it is Calvinism, a false doctrine that damns people to the Lake of Fire forever!
The Horror Story
I attended the usual Wednesday night Bible study at church, where I had been faithfully attending for the previous year. After the service, we had prayer meeting. Then I taught some things about Daniel, Revelation and prophecy to two young men in the Navy, friends which I've made in recent months at church. After we finished talking they left. As I was leaving the auditorium the assistant pastor asked me if I'd step into the back office. I thought perhaps he was going to pray with me about something. Boy, was I wrong!
To my horror, the pastor said that Dr. Jack Hyles was a “cult” leader (that's what the wicked said about Jesus), and that Dr. Hyles' sermons that I've been handing out on CD to other church members are a big concern. Particularly, he said that Dr. Hyle's preaching on the King James Bible was a concern. As the pastor was giving me an ultimatum, telling me to stop promoting Dr. Jack Hyles or don't come back, I thought about this truthful quote from Brother Hyles...
"The biggest split that has ever come will come in the next ten years, if not sooner, over the King James Bible - and it couldn't come soon enough for me. I'm tired of colleges and universities advertising that they 'use' the King James Bible - tell the whole story! Tell everyone that you do not believe that it is inspired word for word." —Pastor Jack Hyles, from the Wednesday night Bible study titled, “Revelation to Illumination” (1998).
Well, now what Bible colleges like Bob Jones University (BJU) are shamefully doing is saying that the originals are inspired and those inspired words have been preserved; BUT, they don't believe that we have an inspired English Bible today. If you haven't read my article yet, please read: How Today's Bible Colleges Woefully Deceive Everyone.
Bob Jones University And The Alexandrian Cult Exposed! (PDF, Dr. Ruckman exposes them all)
HBC fails to recognize that the modern corrupt Bible versions as a threat (an excellent MP3 Bible study by Dr. Max Younce). They don't see a problem and refuse to get into the Bible issue debate. In reality, it's their passive way of doing absolutely nothing while Satan corrupts our Bible versions and infiltrates the churches. BJU pastors are hypocrites, claiming to use only the King James Bible, while also promoting the modern corrupt Bible PERversions as easier-to-understand! The bottom line is that Satan is at work corrupting the Bible, and BJU and their graduates are sitting idle on the sidelines!!! No wonder the churches are so confused!!!
Apostasy in the Churches Today, Denying the Inspiration of the King James Bible
Sadly, but respectfully, out of the words of Pastor John Wilkerson, the new pastor at First Baptist Church in Hammond, Indiana, he doesn't believe in criticizing the modern corrupt versions either, lest he offend a baby believer. Folks, we are at war over the Bible! I have nothing at all against Brother Wilkerson, but I will mention the names of anyone who publicly expresses indifference toward the satanic Bible-butchering movement! Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is a dangerous place to be spiritually, where you will be corrupted with numerous Bible “versions” and the Calvinist false Gospel (aka, Lordship Salvation) of Dr. John MacArthur!
Tragically, Dr. Russell Anderson has split (rightfully so) from Hyles-Anderson College (HAC), because of their horrible denial of the inspiration of the King James Bible since 2008. Now they've adopted Bob Jones University's position on the Bible, that only the originals (which no longer exist) were inspired. It's a serious issue my friend, so serious that I just got banned from a so-called Independent Fundamental Baptist church (HBC) because I teach and believe that all the modern Bible versions which came from the Westcott and Hort Greek are corrupt. They don't believe that! THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT THE INTEGRITY OF THE BIBLE!!! A picture is worth a thousand words. Take a look at this chart showing the origins of modern Bible versions. I'll talk about this matter more in a moment, but first, here's what else happened.
Harvest Baptist Church on Guam are Pulling On the Same Rope as the Devil
While attending Harvest, I always bragged on my pastor (the senior church pastor) and quoted him often to show support for him. I prayed for him and never gossiped once, nor did I ever disagree or tell anyone that I disagreed with him. Brother Hyles taught me better than that. Dr. Hyles taught ethics. I would never deliberately cause trouble in a church, but my friends, if you stand for what is right in a neo-evangelical church, they're going to force you to make a decision. They're going to back you into a corner and force you to either sinfully compromise or stand for God. That's what happened to me, and I stood for God. Harvest doesn't mind if you believe different, just so long as you keep your mouth shut. BOTTOM LINE: Harvest Baptist Church uses the demonic Easy-To-Read Version (ERV) and supports, sells and sanctions the Devil's modern Bible versions (just like Bob Jones University shamefully does!).
I used to regularly listen to KHMG 88.1 FM (Harvest Family Radio, Guam) until they denied my humble requests (three times) to return in 2017. This article is not long enough to go into all the details, so if you'd like to know the whole story, please read: LET GO, LET GOD!
HBC said that they didn't want Dr. Max D. Younce's books either. They were greatly offended by Dr. Younce's book, “Martin Luther: Master of Deceit.” Despite all the documented proof showing that Mr. Luther is a massive fraud, they simply couldn't care less. They've been brainwashed by the dumbed-down, mainstream, woefully ignorant, new-evangelical crowd. It greatly offended the pastor. I gave him the book after the Wednesday evening prayer meeting. I was also told that “I Never Knew You” by Michael Patrick Bowen was unacceptable in their church. I was told that Dr. Jack Hyles' sermons and books are not welcome. The assistant pastor asked if he could pray with me and I refused. I told him, “I disrespect you and I certainly don't want to pray with you, and I'm going home to pray for you to get right with God!” Of course, they are too stinking proud and still choose heresy over THE TRUTH, as of 2018!!! If you want to play church games, then perhaps you'd enjoy the superficial phoniness of harvest Baptist Church.
They hypocritically profess to want the truth. Their church theme for the next year is from 2nd Timothy 2:15, “Study to shew thyself approved,” yet when I distribute truthful sermons and books to fellow church members by fundamental preachers, they tell me to stop doing it or I'm not welcome at their church. Do they really want to be approved of God? Do they really care about the truth? I mean, they are hypocritically promoting God's command to “study,” but when I hand them a book by Dr. Younce (who has done extensive study and found Martin Luther to be a master deceiver), they don't want to hear about it. Consequently, they are NOT APPROVED by God. What a shame!
They called Dr. Hyles a cult leader. The problem with the pastors of shameful churches like this is that they've read the slanderous gossip on the internet about Dr. Hyles and form their biased and unjust opinions. I'm honored to be kicked out of any apostate church who doesn't want Dr. Jack Hyles. Let me tell you something—this sissy-britches, pantywaist, pink-tea-and-lemonade, milquetoast, pansy-generation of jealous, pipsqueak, know-it-all pastors, who couldn't preach their way out of a wet paper bag—aren't worthy to shine Brother Hyles shoes!!! Let me say concerning the church who told me tonight not to come back with Brother Hyles' books and sermons... Dr. Hyles had more wisdom in one finger than they all have in their combined heads. What a bunch of knuckleheads!
I love reading Brother Hyles' books. The most horrible thing about the damage caused by Dr. Hyles' critics is not the stigma they're putting on his name; but rather, the people who will never hear his sermons or read his books because of the slander of some malicious fool that is just hateful.
Here is a powerful quote from one of Dr. Hyles' books about why people criticize fundamentalists who are soul-winners...
These enemies of soul winning love to cast reflection upon those who are obeying the Great Commission, and they have many little clichés to try to put us in a bad light. It seems to me that if they were going to fight someone, they would fight the liberals. The truth of the matter is, these pacifist Christians seem to hate fundamental soul winners far more than they hate the liberals, but, thank God, there are hundreds and hundreds of great soul-winning churches in America who are obeying God's command to take the Gospel to every creature - the halt, the maimed, the blind - to the highways, the hedges, streets and the lanes of the city, etc. May their tribe increase, and may they not be thwarted or hindered by those who like to coin phrases to be used as a shield for their indifference.

Apostasy in Our Churches
It is sad, but true, that people are leaving churches to find God. I am joyfully outside the gate tonight with Jack Hyles, Max Younce, Al Lacy, Michael Bowen, Lester Roloff, Phil Kidd and Jesus Christ. The assistant pastor said in particular they have an issue with Dr. Younce's book titled, “Martin Luther: Master of Deceit!” I am a friend to my friends, and Brother Hyles is my friend, and so also is Pastor Younce. The assistant pastor kept pointing out that Dr. Hyles is dead, and that I shouldn't be worshipping a dead man. That fool-headed assistant pastor is an idiot. May I say, Dr. Hyles is alive and well up in Heaven, rejoicing in the presence of the angels each time a lost sinner down here gets saved. Amen!!! Isn't it something how Pastor Hyles' enemies can speak all manner of malicious evil lies against him and no one says anything; but if someone like me speaks praises about Dr. Hyles, then people go ballistic and call me an idolater. In eternity, many pastors will be utterly ashamed and weep tears of sorrow when they learn that they didn't strive lawfully.
2nd Timothy 2:5, “And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.” The biggest mistake a pastor will ever make is to follow mainstream evangelicalism. I'm sick of pastors claiming to follow the truth of God's Word, but then freak out when you hand them a book by Dr. Al Lacy exposing the NIV as the Antichrist's Bible, or freak out when you hand them Dr. Younce's book exposing Martin Luther as a fraud! Today's new-evangelical pastors say they live for the truth, but they truly DON'T!!!
I worship the Lord Jesus Christ and Him alone, but I promote Dr. Hyles' preaching and books because it is hard-core, Christian, helpful, sincere, simple to understand, and truly the best preaching that I've ever heard. Brother Hyles is not God, and we ought not substitute our time in the Bible with listening to preaching (and Brother Hyles said that himself); but only a complete idiot doesn't see the incredible value in the wealth of information, good advice, sound wisdom and the principles which made Dr. Hyles' life and ministry so great. And you'll find all of that in Brother Hyles' sermons. Although I am saddened to have lost my church family, I rejoice in knowing that I did the right thing for Christ. Pastor Bob Gray Sr. of the Longview Baptist Temple church in Longview, Texas is correct when he says that we were a lot better off when our Baptist churches were regularly having splits. How A Fundamentalist Becomes A Liberal (a red-hot MP3 sermon by Pastor Bob Gray Senior).
If you don't like Dr. Hyles, then don't listen to his sermons; but I'm going to listen to Brother Hyles' preaching until the day that I go to Heaven to give him a big hug, to help encourage me to keep fighting the good fight for the Lord. I guarantee they'd kick Billy Sunday out too! I follow Jack Hyles because he followed the Lord Jesus Christ. I heard some idiot tonight at church criticize Brother Hyles for not sharing his pulpit with other speakers. I spoke up and defended Brother Hyles, who loved his people so much that he didn't trust anybody else to take his place, knowing that they might not love his people like he does. Hey, Pastor Hyles built the church, he raised the money, it's his pulpit to preach, so what's it to you? What do you care?
I'll tell you, critics will find anything and everything to put you down! I love Brother Hyles! What is happening today is that churches are having shared pulpits, to avoid so-called personality cults where one preacher is beloved and more popular than others. What apostasy! Brother, the pastor of the church should be as popular with his people as was Elvis Presley to his fans. What's wrong with making your pastor your hero and looking up to him? I say nothing at all. It's just plain old men's egos and jealousy! I know a Baptist church a few miles away that hasn't had a pastor in 3-years, because the deacons share the pulpit and don't want to lose that power by bringing in a pastor. You know, people don't mind if kids worship immoral and selfish sports athletes; but people go insane with hateful rage if a child praises their pastor, the man of God. God sees it all.
I've also been handing out Dr. Hyles' classic sermon in booklet form, “Somebody Has To Milk The Cows.” They didn't like that either. I haven't distributed any sermons without first giving a copy to the pastor, out of respect. We'll, he didn't like the books at all, and I was told to stop giving them out or leave. Tonight was the first time I had heard about this. I was told that the books and sermons that I've been handing out are divisive, which means, “dissenting (especially dissenting with the majority opinion).” Brother, that's what Christianity is all about, that is, living godly in Christ Jesus. The Christian way has always been the narrow way. The crowd is always wrong. The majority is always deceived.
I flat out told the church senior pastor that Martin Luther taught Baptismal Regeneration until his death and the pastor still insisted that Mr. Luther was saved. What is wrong with pastors today? They've lost their minds! They're afraid to go against the common consensus, the mainstream evangelical opinion, no matter how wrong it may be. By the way, I've never once expressed any disagreement with my pastor to anyone in the church. I hate gossip and I firmly believe in standing behind the pastor. I believe in loyalty. Unfortunately, most pastors don't deserve loyal members who trust them, while being starved spiritually from a dead pulpit.
“The only thing you find
in the middle of the road are dead skunks.”
—a quote by Dr. Curtis Hutson from the awesome sermon titled, “IS THE COMING OF THE LORD NEAR?”
Living Godly in Christ Jesus Brings Persecution, Even from Churches
I never thought I'd be told I wasn't welcome in an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church, because I love and promote the preaching and books of faithful men of God. Did you ever stop to think that no one ever picks apart the modern corrupt Bibles? Why do preachers only correct the precious King James Bible? Why did everybody attack First Baptist Church when Brother Hyles was the pastor? It's because Satan always goes after the best. Jesus said in John 7:7, “The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.” Jesus said all attacks against a Christian are personal attacks against Himself.
Ironically, the theme (for 2015) of HBC was “Study to shew thyself approved” from 2nd Timothy 2:15. What hypocrites! What's the use of studying if you don't really want to know the truth? I mean, the pastor was greatly offended by Dr. Younce's truthful book, “Martin Luther: Master of Deceit!” They hung up a big banner in the church auditorium saying, “Study to shew thyself approved,” yet when I gave them a truthful book to help open their eyes, they told me I was not welcomed anymore. Truly, Satan is gaining much ground in our churches these days. You see, at Harvest Baptist Church they talk the talk, but they don't walk the walk!
Then the assistant pastor tried to say that we just disagree eye-to-eye and these are merely ministerial differences. I said, “Bull crap, this is over the Bible!!!” I told him that I believe all modern Bible versions are corrupt, and “you don't.” He said, “We only use the King James Bible,” which is a LIE OF THE DEVIL. I said, “That's a fork-tongued talk, because you also use your Westcott and Hort Easy-To-Read Version (ERV) parallel Bible, which is corrupt.” It's a big smokescreen. Today's apostate churches want to give the impression that they stand behind the Word of God, by claiming to use the King James Bible; but at the same time they allow and promote modern corrupt versions and never say a word of criticism against them. Bob Jones University is disgusting, selling the English Standard Version (ESV) and other corrupt versions, while professing to use only the King James Bible. DECEIVERS!!! You see, they are cowards who only want to make a buck off religion, so they deliberately try to appease both sides of the Bible debate, driving in the middle of the road, straddling the fence, going along to get along. IT IS WICKEDNESS!!!
How Bob Jones University Helps Damn Souls to Hell
And furthermore, if you use the King James Bible, then prey tell me what is the problem? And why am I in this office being given an ultimatum to take Brother Hyles' sermons and books home or leave for good?” They hate Brother Hyles! The reason why is because Dr. Hyles makes most preachers feel ashamed, and rightfully so, for their arrogant pride, lackadaisical attitudes and do nothing churches. I wouldn't give you a dime for any preacher who dislikes Brother Hyles. And by the way, the hypocritical pastors who kicked me out of their church tonight are graduates of Bob Jones University (BJU) and Northland Baptist Bible College (NBBC).
I said to those pastors tonight, “If Pastor Jack Hyles is not welcomed here at this church, then neither am I, and I wouldn't want to be here.” So I went home and cried, realizing I had just lost my church family. But I know that I am doing the right thing to stand for doctrinal integrity and the purity of the Word of God. Unlike those ecumenical pastors, I am willing to lose friends, family and money to stand for the truth of God's Word! And may I say, you cannot lose a true friend. I am being their friend by telling them the truth, but they esteem the riches of this world and the praises of men more than the praises of God (John 12:43).
The assistant pastor said he taught Greek, trying to put me down, then he asked if I'm a Greek scholar. I told him, “Buddy, I heard your pastor the other day telling people on the radio to confess their sins to one another.” I said he gets that heresy from your corrupted modern Bible PER-versions. The King James Bible says to confess your faults to one another in James 5:16, never your sins. Westcott and Hort were pro-Catholic, so they promoted confessing sins to the Catholic priest.” I told him, “How does your alleged Greek expertise keep so-and-so from teaching heresy derived from a corrupt manuscript?”
You see, all of the alleged Greek experts these days don't know what they're talking about. They're like the morons arranging deck chairs on the sinking Titanic, but no one knows how to keep the ship from sinking. Likewise, all these Greek morons will debate and argue, while churches are being corrupted because a corrupt tree can only bring forth corrupt fruits. Literally, today's shameful pastors cannot see the forest for the trees. I don't care if you are the most skilled Greek scholar, you're building upon a house of sand with the corrupted Westcott and Hort Greek texts. By the way, the Jehovah's Witness' “New World Translation” perverted Bible version is translated from Westcott and Hort's Greek work. You must understand that all modern Bible PERversions come from a completely different Greek source than the beloved King James Bible does. That's the issue!
Nothing Discourages Me More Than Harvest Baptist Church and Bob Jones University
Only Ungodly Men and Women Call Jack Hyles a Cult
Why is it that the heathen world can idolize fools like Elvis Presley, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry, and that's acceptable; but then when I love and promote Dr. Hyles, I am accused of worshipping a man? What is wrong with people? The only difference between my critics and me is that we have different heroes. The heathen world has tattoos of their heroes and that's considered normal, but I am criticized for promoting sermons by my favorite pastors. The only difference between me and my critics is that I have godly heroes and they idolize evil people. Don't let anyone tell you that it is wrong for Christians to have heroes! I'm tired of our youth being given kooks, quacks and queers as their heroes. Bless God, my heroes are Bible-believing preachers!
They called Jack Hyles a cult at my church tonight, and said that “Jack Hyles is dead and so should be his teachings.” That's exactly what the assistant pastor told me with the pastor sitting right there around the corner. He said the Bible is our doctrine, not Dr. Hyles. What an idiot! I don't think Dr. Hyles is my doctrine. Any moron knows that Dr. Hyles is not our authority; but rather, he preaches with authority from an authoritative Book authored by an authoritative God. I like Dr. Hyles books because he was a gifted writer. Brother Hyles turned the Christian life into a science, simplifying the Bible. Have you ever listened to some minister talk for an hour and you were frustrated because there was no substance to sink your teeth into? Sure you have, if you listen to sermons. Well, Dr. Hyles was a porcupine preacher so you got the point!
They again said that Dr. Hyles is dead. I said, “Dr. Hyles is not dead.” Then he smart-alecky asked, “He's not dead?” I said that Dr. Hyles was alive in Heaven, and his books and teachings live on still today. Hey, Martin Luther's been dead for over 400 years, so why do you guys continually promote him? Then he accused me of “worshipping Dr. Hyles.” I really think these immature men are green with bitter envy and jealousy, totally lacking wisdom on the matter. I was ashamed to even know them tonight. I had never seen this ugly side of them. Honestly, you just never know who somebody is until you start giving them Dr. Hyles CD's with sermons and books. They totally freaked out! These arrogant ministers who dare call themselves pastors will not tolerate sound doctrine in THEIR church (it's certainly not God's church). The Bible warned us 2nd Timothy 4:3, “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.”
Is it Brother Hyles' fault that he was such an awesome preacher and so many people adored him and were loyal to him? Of course not. People call Dr. Hyles' ministry a cult because they've either read that crap on the internet (and are unjust to believe gossip), or else they are jealous of his massive success and choose to be malicious, or both. Jesus Himself fully knew how ungrateful people can be. The Lord healed ten lepers and only one returned to thank Him. Over one million people walked an isle to receive Christ as their Savior, either in Dr. Hyles' pastorates or in churches pastored by his preacher boys. If that's a cult brother, count me in! The truth is that Dr. Hyles' life's work was the admirable fulfillment of the purpose of the New Testament Church, which is to carry out The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20).
Bob Jones University, Staff and Pastors at Harvest Spit On Jesus!
The Apostate Growing Religious Business
I love Evangelist Phil Kidd, who teaches that many churches are swelling instead of growing. A dead corpse swells as it rots. Many of our large churches are increasing in size, but it's not because they are growing; but rather, it is because they are dead within and are a rotting corpse attracting worldly members and the rot of the world. The BJU pastor told me in defense of himself that they use the King James Bible, yet at the same time he's telling me that I am not welcomed anymore in their church if I hand out Dr. Al Lacy's awesome book, “NIV: The Antichrist's Bible.” I told that shameful pastor that I felt like Nathan the prophet, sent by God to rebuke them for dropping the ball. I told him that. I also told him that in eternity on judgment day they would never be able to say that they weren't aware of these issues, because I believe God led me to open their eyes. I sincerely believe that God brought me to that church as a testimony against them on judgment day.
Do you see how hypocritical pastors are becoming? It's total sinful compromise, plain and simple! They want to appear to believe the Bible, while at the same time not being willing to fight for it's purity. This is the lukewarm attitude of believers that makes God vomit in Revelation 3:15-16. IT MAKES GOD VOMIT!!! What these cowardly pastors are doing is following mainstream apostate evangelicalism in America. They're afraid to veer too far from the mainstream professed “Christian” religious movement. Taking a stand has never been popular. Dr. Hyles and Brother Roloff were voted out of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) in their early ministries. They were outside the gate with Jesus. Any preacher worth his salt has been kicked out of something. This is not the first time that I've been kicked out of a ministry because of my King James Bible Only position, and if the Lord let's me live I'm sure it won't be the last. I rejoice because it means that I'm doing something right. It's just tragic that the persecution godly Christians are facing nowadays is coming from the churches!!!
Can you imagine... independent Baptist preachers who don't preach, who claim to be fundamental but they're not, who don't mention Hell, don't mention the Second Coming, don't preach against sin... all they do is look righteous in their white suits, hobnob with the business community, and sit idle for God as far as soul-winning is concerned. They baptize 2 people as a formality every 6 month. What a sad joke! They wouldn't let me 10-feet near their church pulpit, because I would let-er-rip. It is sickening what Bob Jones PERversity and Moody Bible SINstitute have done to our nation's churches.
I also told them that I hadn't heard even one sermon or mention from the pulpit about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ in nearly a year. I mentioned that no one ever preaches against sin from the pulpit. They couldn't have cared less. The 300-lb assistant pastor simply smirked, folded his arms, and sat back in his chair all smug. I said, “Do you realize that you guys have to stand before God one day and give account for the things you say, do and promote?” They couldn't have cared less. They think Martin Luther is born-again, despite plain evidence to the contrary. They think it doesn't matter which Bible version people use. They agree with Lordship Salvation. They have no problem with John MacArthur teaching that Jesus' precious blood never made it to the mercy seat in Heaven. They have no burning compulsion to preach on Hell fire. Sadly, they are in the business of religion, and it pays well!
I told the pastors that I was sincerely just trying to help people by sharing recent sermons that I had heard. They hated Dr. Max D. Younce's book titled, “Martin Luther: Master of Deceit.” I personally handed a copy to the senior pastor last Wednesday evening. He read the book's cover title out loud. I kindly replied that Luther taught Baptismal Regeneration and Sacramental Salvation until the day that he died and sadly went to Hell. The senior pastor then said, “Martin Luther was born-again!” I stayed quiet and put my head down, realizing that the senior pastor needs to read the book. After reading the book, they warned me not to give out any more copies in the church (I've been giving out copies on CD). I prayed all week for God to work in my pastor's heart, to show him the truth. Dr. Younce does a brilliant job supporting all his claims and documents everything. I highly recommend his books.
My goal has always been to help Christian workers and laymen become aware of issues that they likely were not aware of. Instead of thanking me and reading the books, I was shunned and told I am not welcomed unless I cease and desist from propagating the truth. I could never stay in a corrupt manmade church like that for another second. I could never respect a pastor who chooses to live a lie and keep his congregation in the dark concerning the truth. They are in fact “not approved” by God, because they reject the truth. They praise heretic John MacArthur. They teach the false plan of salvation of Lordship Salvation. They have substituted entertainment for the power of God.
I didn't hear the word “soul-winning” mentioned even once in the year I attending this independent Baptist church. They don't teach personal soul-winning. The church has no scheduled times to meet and go soul-winning. There is no organized soul-winning. But they have a great teen orchestra. They have paint-ball competition for their teens. They have jet-skiing for their teens. But sadly, there's no soul-winning club. Their youth department not too long ago performed Walt Disney musical themes like Aladdin and The Lion King for the church congregation. Walt Disney is of the Devil! Walt Disney promotes homosexuality and is a sexually perverse group. See, Walt Disney Sleaze.
The Independent Baptist church hosts their own radio station and openly promotes Harry Potter's witchcraft. I heard the associate pastor this week, while interviewing one of their students-of-the-week on the radio, ask her if she had read the Harry Potter series and she affirmed that she had. Shame! Instead of protecting our children from satanic influence, our Baptist churches are helping Satan. No wonder two-thirds of their 1,000 students are admittedly not born-again Christians!!!
Outside the Camp with Jesus, Our Scapegoat
I am outside the gate with Jesus, our Scapegoat. What is a “scapegoat” in the Bible. Dr. Hyles states...
A “scapegoat” is someone who is punished for the wrong of others. A scapegoat takes the blame for someone else. Jesus is our scapegoat. The Lord was completely innocent, yet He suffered as an evildoer in our place on the cross.
As we learn in our text verses above, God instructed the Old Testament Levite priests to take two goats. The first one was to be slain, representing the slain Lamb of God. The second was to be led outside the gate and released into the wilderness, which represents Christ's innocence, Who joyfully became our scapegoat because He loves us.
Just as Christ was rejected and crucified outside the city gate, even so will we also be rejected and persecuted by the world if we identify with the risen Christ (John 15:19; 2nd Timothy 3:12). Thank God for Jesus' sacrifice for our sins!!!
Jesus was punished for our sins, and as such He became our scapegoat, bearing our reproach of sin. Thank you Lord Jesus!!! Dr. Hyles tells about the time when several millionaires in his church stood up to him and gave him an ultimatum. They demanded, either the poor buskids go or we go and we'll go and take our millions-of-dollars with us.
Invitations to speak at civic clubs ceased. Dinner engagements with the elite were stopped, and suddenly I found myself outside the gate, rejected by the self-styled elite, affluent and scholarly of the area. There I was with the bus kids, the poor, the halt, the maimed and the blind. I was lonely I did not want to love and be considered unloving. I did not want to be considered unscholarly and uncouth. It was dark. It was lonely. Then suddenly I heard a Voice say, "Welcome." I looked up to see Whose voice was speaking. I saw nail prints in His hands and feet. I heard Him say, "Welcome. I am glad you have come outside the camp to Me." Suddenly I realized that Jesus was already outside the camp and that He was just as unpopular with that elite crowd as I was. Ah, how sweet the fellowship! How wonderful was His presence! I was outside the camp WITH HIM! What a bargain! What a deal! What a Saviour!
Tonight I was put outside the gate where Jesus is, Who because the scapegoat for our sins.
Pastor Jack Hyles all too well knew the pain of church splits, losing members, and being put outside the gate with the scapegoat (Jesus). When several millionaires gave Brother Hyles an ultimatum to get rid of the buskids or they'd leave with their money, Dr. Hyles chose the buskids. Amen! JACK HYLES CHOSE THE POOR BUSKIDS!!! That's why I love Brother Hyles so much!!!
...suddenly I found myself outside the gate, rejected by the self-styled elite, affluent and scholarly of the area. There I was with the bus kids, the poor, the halt, the maimed and the blind. I was lonely I did not want to love and be considered unloving. I did not want to be considered unscholarly and uncouth. It was dark. It was lonely.
I was kicked out of church tonight because they made an ultimatum that I either stop sharing books and sermons by Jack Hyles with others or don't come back. They said, Pastor Max Younce's books and sermons are not welcomed here! We won't tolerate the sound doctrine of Michael P. Bowen. We won't let you share Dr. Al Lacy's books and sermons with our church congregation, we own them! Talk about a manmade cult. Who's the cult? They told me not to bring Dr. Max D. Younce's book on “Martin Luther: Master of Deceit” back either, or else you're not welcomed anymore. They said not to bring, “I Never Knew You” by Michael Patrick Bowen back or we don't want you around us, and you're not welcome in your church family. The simple fact of the matter is that I have been forbidden to bring these (what they call divisive) truths into the church congregation, which means I too am outside the gate with Jesus.
How can they dare call Dr. Hyles' ministry “a cult,” when they are behaving exactly like the cults? I told the pastor that they are acting like Seventh Day Adventists, by not being upfront with people about the truth. They draw people into their manmade church with love, but then they keep them by providing first-class entertainment, not preaching hard against sin, not stepping on any toes or permitting members like me from sharing the truth with other members. I plainly told the pastor that what I distribute to other people is my business from one adult to another, and they had no say in the matter. Yet, it is THEIR church, so I have been forced to make a decision that I wish I didn't have to make. If Pastor Younce's doctrinally correct books and sermons are not welcomed, then I'm not welcomed either! If Dr. Jack Hyles is disrespected and banned, then so am I. I am a friend to my friends; but moreover, these men whose sermons and books I promote are Biblical accurate and correct, which is why I stand with them. Brother Hyles is still alive in Heaven, and I will defend him when someone attacks and criticizes him. That's not worship, that's friendship.
I wept uncontrollably when I got home tonight, having lost my church family over befriending my friend Dr. Jack Hyles, and I'd do it again a thousand times if I have to. I lost my church family tonight over contending for the faith, by exposing the modern corrupt Bible versions. It is a worthy fight. I will be a friend to my friends, especially to my Friend Who sticketh closer than a brother, the Lord Jesus Christ. If any books or sermons by Pastor Max D. Younce are not welcomed in a church, then I'm leaving too. I choose to be outside the gate with Max Younce, Jack Hyles, Michael Patrick Bowen and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Brother Hyles was given an ultimatum by several wealthy families, millionaires, in his church. They said, either those bus kids go or we do! Pastor Hyles grew up in The Great Depression and he knew poverty well. Dr. Hyles didn't eat an egg, have his own shoes, see a flushable toilet, or eat a hamburger until he was 15 years old. Brother Hyles told those snobby millionaires, I'LL TAKE THE BUS KIDS!!! I'll take the buskids too! I'LL TAKE THE BUSKIDS!!! I'LL TAKE THE POOR, THE MAIMED, THE TIRED, THE IN DEBT, THE LONELY, THE OUTCASTS, THE BEREAVED, THE HURTING, THE LOSERS... because that's where you'll find Jesus and me... outside the camp!
