Apostasy In The Church
It is a sad day in America when people are having to leave church to find God! Most churches today are apostate—using corrupt bibles, singing worldly Christian Rock music, teaching psychology instead of preaching the Word of God, endorsing Godless political leaders, et cetera.
Thank God for America's faithful, door-to-door, soul-winning, churches...
The purpose of the Church is not to EDUCATE people; but rather, to DISCIPLE them. How can you truly disciple people if you are lackadaisical concerning THE TRUTH. The Church is not a social club, state-licensed 501c3 business or music concert; but rather, the Church is the vehicle by which God chose to carry out The Great Commission.
I cannot recommend enough that you read the excellent book titled, “THE CHURCH,” by one of my heroes of the faith, Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001), which explains many things about the New Testament Church that most people have never learned . . .
It is tragic that most churches today have embraced the vile New International Version (NIV) of the Bible. The issue of “which Bible” is worth fighting over. The NIV teaches Lordship Salvation in Romans 10:9, a false teaching rooted in self-righteousness. Please read, “Making Salvation Hard.” Let us proclaim the truth that JESUS CAME TO SAVE SINNERS! Following Jesus is not salvation. Making a commitment to God is not salvation. Here are the excellent words of Pastor Harry Ironside concerning Biblical salvation...
Biblical salvation means coming to God as a guilty sinner and trusting upon the Good News (i.e., the Gospel) of the Lord Jesus Christ. Acts 10:43, “To Him give all the prophets witness, that through His name whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins.” Amen! With all the corrupt Bibles in churches today, Satan has produced an entire generation of corrupt theologians and authors. It's like the buttons on a shirt, that is, if you get the first button wrong then all the other buttons will be wrong too!
“Blindness has enveloped the Christian church
It is tragic, but true, that the true New Testament church is being driven underground in America. Faithful believers like me, who expose the Alexandrian counterfeit Bible versions, and expose false prophets like Dr. John MacArthur, and refute the false gospel of Lordship Salvation, are forced out of the churches as troublemakers. It is crazy!!! Churches are so backslidden and apostate, that they don't even realize a person who contends for the faith. It's bizarre, but Christianity is being driven underground. On the face of things in Europe and the United States, they look like Christian nations, there are plenty of churches, but when one digs deeper, when one really IS a Christian, and wishes to make a stand for the Christian faith, one quickly finds apostasy and rejection.
The Kind Of Preaching We Need (Bob Jones' evangelical grads aren't getting the job done!)
I have been put outside the gate with Jesus, shunned away, even prohibited from simply attending church services by Bob Jones graduate churches, all because they refuse to serve God totally, and I am MUCH closer to the Lord and truth than they are. Here is the beautiful life-changing quote from Pastor Yankee Arnold, who is so correct in what he says below...
I highly encourage you to listen to the entire beautiful sermon, “THE CALL TO SUFFER,” which I guarantee will change your life.
We need more hard-hitting, people-loving, truth-telling, soulwinning, Spirit-filled, King James Bible only, fiery preachers like Pastor Phil Kidd, who pulls no punches...
“We're living in a different generation. ... They've been a whole new crowd come up in the last 15-years. And what's happened is our churches ... you listening to me? Churches have lost touch! Brother, we've lost touch! ... We're in a perilous time tonight. ... It's a dangerous time that you and I are living in.”
“There is much mourning to-day over false 'isms,' infidelity, and the like, but sum them all up, and I do not fear them one half so much as that dead and cold formalism that has crept into the Church of God.” —Pastor Dwight L. Moody
Here is a powerful quote from Dr. Hyles about why people criticize fundamentalists who are soul-winners...
Businessmen think in terms of money, but Jesus warned in Luke 16:13, “Ye cannot serve God and mammon” (money). A preacher always upholds the truth, without concern for money...
“All across America businessmen are destroying churches!”
Why do you think John the Baptist lived off the land out in the desert wilderness? John needed nothing from anybody, so he could let 'er rip and PREACH THE TRUTH!!! The love of money is the enemy of PREACHING!!!
The purpose of every New Testament church should be:
“Why go to a dead church
when you're going to go to a living place in Heaven?”
“America has one central problem, and
that one central problem is the church!”
No one wants to be a part of something that is dying. Go to the average church today and you'll see a half empty building with grey hair and bald heads. There's no youth! It's not the so-called “generation gap” either. Satan started that lie long ago. Adults aren't so different than teens, but the Devil wants teens to think so to alienate them from their parents. What teenagers want i something that's real! America is dying for preaching preachers with some guts, who speak the truth without apology and say it like it is, taking an uncompromising stand for the Lord against evils in society, and loving others with God's unconditional love. Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) was such a man (here's over 1,628 MP3 sermons) ...
Dr. Jack Hyles grew up poor in Texas during The Great Depression. People who grew up in the depression era think very different than people do today decades later. Growing up poor and learning to make-do with what you had molded the character of a generation. It was the depression era generation who won World War II. You can hear Brother Hyles talk about his childhood and struggles which built his character in the excellent MP3 sermon titled, Take Up Thy Cross Daily. Also, Hasty Fruit (some of the best financial advice you'll ever hear - by Pastor Jack Hyles). Dr. Hyles lived his life by principles, many of which are shared in his dozens of free online books, such as Blue Denim And Lace.
I recently visited a Baptist church where the pastor wore blue jeans to the pulpit, spoke psychology instead of preaching, the music was worldly, the NIV was their Bible, most of the women wore pants, and the only invitation given to lost sinners was to “follow Jesus.” Well, many people followed Jesus in His time in hopes of receiving food or a blessing, but they weren't saved. Judas was one of Christ's very Apostles, but he was lost and went to Hell.
The way to keep a church from going liberal is to stand guard diligently. Pastors must walk guard around their ministries, around them self. The church must control the schools and ministries. The church must wag the tail of the school, and not the school wagging the church. Nothing should be more important in a ministry than the pulpit of a church. Too many people want to teach theology; but they don't want to go soul-winning and spread theology. Preaching changes lives (Titus 1:3).
I love Brother Hyles (1926-2001)! This sorry nation owes Pastor Jack Hyles a debt of gratitude that cannot adequately be expressed in words. Millions of people's lives have been saved from Hell, changed for God, and blessed tremendously under Pastor Hyles' 55-years of ministry. America needs a handful of preachers like Dr. Jack Hyles, who uncompromisingly preached against sin . . .
America could be brought back to God if preachers would start preaching again!
As Christians, we should care about the individual as much as the group. I realized when I started this website that most people would go away angry or laughing, but I didn't make this website for them. I made this website with God's help and guidance to reach out to the INDIVIDUAL. It's that one person in a hundred that I am here to help by Gods grace.
Here are the caring words of Pastor Lee Roberson (1909-2007), who spent his life caring and living for others. . . .
Tyranny In Government
Never has our own government committed such blatant crimes against the American people. It is disturbing what happened at Enron and the truth behind the Bush Family fortunes. Respectfully, President Obama is a Communist, who has promised to expand rights for homosexuals. Many pastors have endorsed Obama's Presidency. It is apostasy! It is not wonderful, it is terrible. What are people being taught in churches today? Will you eagerly board the train to Auschwitz also to be killed? WWII Baptists in Germany Supported Hitler as a Champion of Religious Liberty Who was Doing God's Will. Don't be so gullible, use the brain that God gave you to think!
Even more sickening is the apostate attitude amongst some believers that churches should blindly support a criminal leader. Please read, Biblical Submission to Government. God commands us to hate evil (Psalm 97:10) and to rise up against evildoers (Psalm 94:16). Please read, Romans 13.
Certainly, President Obama is a likeable person, a strong leader and a gentlemen; but as believers we ought not support any politician who funds abortion, promotes Socialism and caters to illegal immigrants. Respectfully, Obama is bad news! They are following the Hitler handbook. Moreover, a little research reveals that President Obama is a mere toy boy puppet of the global financiers, the criminal global elite who are hellbent on destroying America!
The Bible teaches that God raises up and brings down authority (Romans 13). God has given America the leaders that we deserve because of our love for sin as a nation. However, the Bible also teaches for Christians to stand up against evildoers and workers of iniquity (Psalm 94:16). So how do you reconcile the two Scriptural principles? The answer is simply that we ought to obey government authority, but we should also stand against crimes and evils in government. The problem in America today is that most Christian leaders are in bed with the government as state-licensed 501c3 organizations. Thus, our church leaders support the criminals who are corrupting and ruining our country.
If America's Christians would obey 2nd Chronicles 7:14, then we would turn from our indifference and stand up against the evildoers! The only reason why Playboy has thrived in America is because Christians have tolerated it. When Playboy opened their doors in Indonesia, the town showed up with pickaxes and sledge hammers and demolished the place! When Hugh Hefner opened his doors in 1954 in the U.S., Americans lined up and became customers, including “reverends” Martin Luther King Jr. and Jesse Jackson in the late 1960's. The only reason why evil has flourished in America (in every manner) is because of our apostate Christian leaders who have sold out to tax-exemption through 501c3 state-licensing.
God has given to me a preacher's heart, concerned about the soul's of people. Sadly, most pastors today have a used car salesman's heart, always looking for an angle how to make more money. They have their reward.
God deliver us from carnally-minded preachers who neglect to preach the truth! There's an insane form of thinking amongst the clergy that the only truth they should be concerned with is Biblical truth; but every preacher ought to search out and preach the truth about secular matters as well. For a pastor to preach on John 3:16 while totally ignoring TSA sticking their hands down people's pants is apostasy! They're sticking their hands into your wife's skirt to look for explosives? Homeland Security Thugs Force 95-Year Old Elderly Woman in Wheelchair to Remove Her Diaper. Only an apostate pastor would rally behind and support a criminal government.
Statistics On Pastors (behind every pulpit is a human being; love, praise, encourage & pray for your pastor).
If your pastor doesn't care about the
takeover of our government, then you need to find another church. We
are at spiritual war and most churches are hiding in the barracks.
Criminals have taken over our government as
President Kennedy warned 10 days before they killed him. It's the
Goldman Sachs Gang, the Merrill Lynch Mob, the Citi Group criminals who
bankrupting our nation. They are not bankers, they are loan sharks!
Study about the
Federal Reserve thieves!
10,400,000 American Families are Sliding Toward Losing Their Homes in
Foreclosure. Our journey into hell is almost complete as a nation.
Censorship is very near! History evidences that evil, if allowed to go
unchecked, brings a nation to ruin.
There Is No More Morality In America!
The entire system is collapsing in America. It all goes back to morals. Matthew 7:12, “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” Do unto others! There's no morality anymore! People in every business are becoming crooked—adding unapproved charges, sneaking in extra fees, not telling you things that'll cost you more money, overcharging customers, bogus penalties, taking advantage of people with fine print (that they deliberately make a mile long, knowing that you won't read it because it's too long) and being deceptive. Thieves, liars and crooks abound in business today!
People are becoming ruthless! God sees their evil heart. One of my favorite Scriptures is Proverbs 24:12, “If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?” No one is going to get away with anything. America is being judged and this is just the beginning of hell. The vampires are putting their napkins around their necks getting ready for dinner. I'm not trying to be negative, I'm trying to be honest.
It has become so corrupt in the United States today. Instead of corporate criminals being indicted, they are whitewashed by the mainstream newsmedia, and they sell books detailing their crimes. It's sickening! Anyone who runs their mouth about going to war, wanting to get tough with Iran... lead the charge or shut your fat mouth. America has become a command base of pure evil.
The Cashless Society is all about the bankers being able to rob you and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. Soon, you won't be able to buy or sell without a mark on your forehead or right wrist. It's going to get crazier and crazier! The crooks are getting bold! Congress is totally corrupt, except for a handful of decent people like Dr. Ron Paul. Soon you won't be able to buy or sell anything without a cashless system that can be turned off on a whim by the government, leaving you to starve if you are on a no-buy list (which the present no-fly list is going to expand into). Talk about a way to control the masses! The global elite are going to create artificial scarcity of food, water and oil to control the masses.
If churches don't care and take a stand against the evils afflicting our generation, then we are doomed. What do you think the Bible means in 2nd Chronicles 7:14 when God tells us to turn from our wicked ways? The most wicked thing people can do is NOTHING! Departing from our wicked ways means to start caring and taking a stand against the evils plaguing our nation.
If you are a Christian man, clergy or
layman, your blood should be boiling over this tyranny. The government
is doing this to dehumanize Americans, conditioning us to accept a
Police State. By incrementally infringing on our freedoms and rights, we
are being conditioned for total criminal takeover. While Americans are
indicted for J-walking, Wall Street criminals steal trillions of dollars
from the American public and no one is indicted.
America is going to hell in a wheelbarrow while hundreds-of-thousands of dead churches all across America sit idle and do absolutely nothing about it. The hearse pictured above is more than appropriate for the average church in America today. Rigor mortis has set in! How can churches just sit back and remain silent?
It is not enough for a pastor to preach three times a week and then go home. Most churches today are more like private social clubs—where a group of people meet together a few times a week, tithe, sing a few songs, hear a sugarstick sermonette, and then go home. That's what the cults do. The message needs to get outside of the walls of the church! America's preachers have lost their fire.
I'm talking about soulwinning churches here too! Please don't misunderstand me here. I love soulwinning (i.e., preaching the Gospel of Christ to lost sinners). I am a soulwinner myself. I love a soulwinning church and I'm not trying to discourage anyone, but our nation is going to hell. We have forgotten God. If we are going to bring America back to God at all, then we have got to start taking a stand against EVIL in each and every town across this great nation. Preachers across America need to start rocking the boat.
There are soulwinning churches all across America that never try to fight anything! The truth is that we have become complacent in our freedom (including being complacent about the Bible). We didn't have to fight for our freedom, others did. We didn't have to bleed and suffer as others did. We never went through the Russian Gulag camps. We were never torture victims of the Japanese 731 units. Naturally, we take our freedom for granted. I ask you to WAKE UP Christian! Wake Up! America needs voices! Please read Inoculated Christianity! Also, please read Carrying Your Cross.
I am not saying that we should get side-tracked from building our churches and soulwinning. What I am saying is that there is a lot of wickedness going on in America and churches need to start coming out of the closet. The only reason that the homosexuals are coming out of their closets is because Christians in churches across America are hiding in their own closets. So while we're playing church, the rest of our community is going to hell. Every pastor of every church across America needs to post a big sign outside the church that reads, "Abortion is murder!"
Most preachers are wimps and don't have the courage to stand against sin. Making money is their main love and concern. They're afraid of losing support so they dip their sails. What good are convictions as a preacher if you don't take a stand? You can post a big sign that says, "God loves people" as well. All I'm saying is that America is going to hell while churches all across the country are letting it happen. Are we fighting the good fight of faith? No, we are definitely not! Sadly, foreign Muslims have more morality than most Christians in America. I say this to our shame as a nation.
"For the pastors are become brutish, and have not sought the LORD: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered." —Jeremiah 10:21
I'm not a fan of Jerry Falwell. As a matter of fact, he's a wolf in sheep's clothing. However, I was impressed when I found out that Jerry Falwell distributed a video tape to his congregation exposing the illegal drug-trafficking cover-up in Mena, Arkansas (and then Governor Bill Clinton being in over his head). The smuggling of illegal drugs into America by our own CIA has been firmly documented.
There is NO war on drugs! If America's preachers would all get right with God and start crying aloud against such evils in our nation (as Billy Sunday did against alcohol), something would have to change. The average Christian is living in the dark and is woefully ignorant of what's going on in the real world. It doesn't have to be this way, but pastors have deliberately kept their people in the dark for fear of scaring away their cash cow.
One pastor looked at my website and said he thought people would consider me "a nut." Well then I'm a nut for Jesus, but at least I'm contending for the faith! He meets with his church members every Wednesday to "pray about the abortion issue," while innocent children are brutally murdered by abortion in his own community. A word of protest is NEVER heard from his church. You'd think he'd buy some signs at www.antiabortionsigns.com and go down to the local abortion clinic with his people to protest. That will do more to save lives than expecting God to do everything.
A faithful man of God spends time with God and his heart BURNS with a desire to preach the truth near and far. Part of 2nd Chronicles 7:14 is turning from our wicked ways. We have sinned greatly against the Lord by becoming indifferent and apathetic. We go through the routine of prayer because it makes us feel like we've done what was expected of us. Boy, aren't we great Christians for praying At what point in the Christian life are we supposed to make it real and get our hands dirty?
There are believers who go to church every Sunday and tithe 10% of their income. They think they are so spiritual. Sadly, they've only given God 2% of their life. If you work 40-hours at your job, 10% of that is 4-hours. There are 168-hours in a week. So you've only given God 2% of your total time (i.e., 4 divided by 168). Ask any business man and he'll agree... time is money. So, big deal if you've given God 10% of your income, in reality you've only given 2% of your time to God. God wants your time too. There is no call to soulwinning, it is a command for all believers (Proverb 11:30; Matthew 28:19-20; 2nd Corinthians 5:11). Few people are willing to give God their time.

“What we need is a school that teaches the whole English Bible. What is needed is a school that will take men from the engine cab, from between the plowshares and teach them the Bible. What is needed is a school that is free from modernism. What is needed is a school that will teach a man how to go out with the Bible under his arms, faith in his heart, and in the power of the Holy Spirit begin in a vacant lot and build a church to the glory of God.”

“Satan does not have to bother himself by going to the tavern, he owns the place. He has his emissaries to run the place. Satan appeared in the Garden of Eden when all was peace. That tavern down there is of the Devil and don't you forget it. And so is every other tavern! But Satan does not need to spend his time there. He owns the place lock, stock, and barrel. They're sold out to him.
But Satan comes to a church like this this morning and he does his work here. T'was in the Garden of Eden where God walked with man and man walked with God, where Satan appeared and raised his ugly head for the first time on earth. He came to the best situation.
Now in the Book of Job he came to the best Christian on earth and accused the best Christian on earth. You see, Satan does not come this morning and work on the fellow who has a hangover who's in bed this morning vomiting because of his dissipation last night. Satan does not come to him this morning. Satan comes to the Jobs—he comes to the best Christians on earth—he wants your testimony, he wants your life, he wants your time, he wants your talent, he wants to steal you for himself.”

Our First Amendment Rights
It is sad that MOST Christians do not fully understand their First Amendment rights. Folks we have the legal right to speak out and protest against our government. I'm tired of namby-pamby believers who think it's a sin to speak out against any authority. We have a God-given duty to contend for the faith, for righteousness and for all that is right. We have a duty to take a stand for God.
America is entering the fifteenth round folks! We are heading into the final stretch! It's the ninth inning! We are about to lose our freedoms and country to the New World Order. Thank God for men like Alex Jones and Rep. Ron Paul who are getting the truth out. Would to God that preachers across America would start doing the same. It's a crying shame that secular people are doing what churches across America should be doing. Yes, we should preach the Word of God and salvation, but we must not ignore the evils of our day either. Take the blinders off!
"Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will
I've heard all kinds of excuses from Christians why we shouldn't get involved. A favorite is from Romans 16:19 where the Apostle Paul declares, "...I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil." The Apostle Paul wasn't saying that we should live like ostriches with our head in the sand, he was simply telling us that we should avoid evil. As Christians we are supposed to abstain from ALL appearances of evil (1st Thessalonians 5:22), but this in no way excuses us from taking a stand against the evils of our day.
We need to protect our freedoms. I hate to say it but the ACLU is doing more to protect our rights than most churches are! I realize that the ACLU is a heathen organization, but they ARE protecting the rights of Christians as well as heathens. You have no right to preach against the ACLU for being a liberal institution if you're not doing anything to fight for freedom. Most people could care less about what I'm talking about. Do you know when they'll care? ... when they lose their freedom or it is challenged. It can happen to you. It won't be long until it's everyone's turn. Read about the Christine family. Does anyone care to listen to the wisdom of those who are trying to warn us?
Do you understand that? Washington has way too much power folks! They overruled the law of the states in 1972 and mandated legal abortions. Next they will be mandating legal homosexual marriages nationwide. Our government confiscates our money in the form of taxes and Social Security and then has the audacity to tell us that they can't account for where the money went. Don't you realize that as a U.S. citizen that everything OUR government leaders do they do in OUR name with OUR money. And then they tell you that it's none of your business where the money is going. It is called "corporate responsibility." We are responsible for the actions of OUR leaders. Thomas Jefferson would call for a revolution to this mess.
The New World Order is here friend, the police state is now being constructed right under our very nose under the disguise of Homeland Security.
Oh how woefully ignorant are the American people! And worse yet, most of the churches across America are just as ignorant of what's going on. We are headed for destruction as a nation (just like the Titanic) and no one realizes it yet. The good times are soon going to come to an end.
Are you listening to the wisdom of one of our founding fathers? What Communist Russia couldn't do through force, the global elite (illuminati) are doing through policy changes and new laws stemming from the 911 Attacks. And it worked like a charm! The American people have sold their souls in exchange for security. What they don't realize is that the 911 Attacks were carried out as a pretext for war, thievery and to lay the foundation for a Police State in the U.S.
Patriot Act II works something like this!
“It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from his
Wake up! We must all speak out against the evils of our day! Why are we so complacent about abortion? About homosexuality? About evils in government? Stand up! I will never vote Democrat or Republican again knowing what I know about the evil people deliberately destroying our country.
"Evil triumphs when good men do nothing." —Thomas Jefferson
If America's churches don't stand up against the evils of our day, then whose going to do it? Well the ACLU is fighting to protect our First Amendment rights. Rapper, Eminem, just released a music video exposing the evils of 911 (asking President Bush why he brought the trade towers down). I mean... this is insanity! The unsaved people of this world are doing what the churches should be doing, that is, standing firm against the evils plaguing OUR nation. The heathens are wiser than the children of God (Luke 16:8), but God doesn't want it that way.
Jesus was disturbed over the fact that the unsaved people of His day were more on the ball than the Christians were. I am saddened every time I think about this—we need to repent as believers and get right with God. America needs voices!!! Voices to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with lost sinners! Voices to share the love of God. Voices to speak out against homosexuality! Voices to speak out against abortion! Voices to speak out against Hollywood! Voices to speak out against the criminals recklessly leading our country into the ground! Who will rise up!
It is up to you! You need to get informed! You need to get busy for God! Let's give the Devil a black eye! This is our country, let's fight to bring her back to God. We may not win the battle, but God WILL reward us for standing tall and without apology for what is right. We may not be able to stop the New World Order, but we can fight against Communism and thwart it. Just because evil is inevitable doesn't give us a right to sit back and allow it to happen in front of our faces without doing anything to fight it.
“Though the stars fall, do right!” —Bob Jones Sr.
Most people may not care about doing what is right, but there are still millions of people across America who care about justice and decency. Don't make it easy on the New World Order. Let's fight them every inch of the way! Ephesians 5:11 states . . . “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
“It would be a godsend if the Church would suffer persecution today; she hasn't suffered it for hundreds of years. She is growing rich and lagging behind. Going back.” —Billy Sunday, The Need for Revivals, From "Billy Sunday: The Man and His Message", by William T. Ellis, Philadelphia: John C. Winston Co., 1914
As Christians, we
know that there is a literal hell and a lake of fire where the unsaved
will burn for all eternity, therefore, we act upon this truth without
reservation and GO OUT into the streets and communities of America
declaring the WORD OF GOD and proclaiming the GOOD NEWS.
