The Ungodly World Love Their
(Or, Further Proof That The Holy Bible Is God's inspired Word!)
By David J. Stewart | January 2019
John 15:19, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”
I struggled with what to title this article, because many ideas come to mind. I thought of calling it, “Just To Show You How Wicked The World Is,” or “Americans Are Some Of The Biggest Hypocrites” or “The World Is So Unfair Toward Christians” or “Further Proof That The Holy Bible Is God's Word,” and so forth. Then I was reminded of something key that Jesus said in John 15:19, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”
I cannot think of any greater example of John 15:19, than the ongoing malicious witchhunt against Pastor Jack Hyles and his family. Wikipedia.org comes to mind, because they have become the biggest source of information about people on the internet; and unfortunately, oftentimes false information. Wikipedia is often wrong, as I will show you, connecting dots that don't really exist to criminally slander people.
I just entered the search words “Who writes Wikipedia” into Google, and this is what came up first...
The bulk of Wikipedia is written by 1400 obsessed freaks who do little else but contribute to the site, says a post racing up the Hacker News charts. The post pulls this number from an essay Aaron Swartz wrote more than two years ago, based on some comments by Jimmy Wales.
That sounds about accurate. In other words, you're got a group of about 1,400 losers who live in their parent's basement, and have nothing more creative to do than attack, slander and critique people they don't like. Here is what Wikipedia has to say about who writes their articles...
The English Wikipedia currently has 35,441,773 users who have registered a username. An unknown but relatively large number of unregistered Wikipedians also contribute to the site. About 250,000 new accounts are created every month. About 300,000 editors have edited Wikipedia more than 10 times. 124,729 have performed an edit within the last 30 days.
The preceding two quotes indicate that Wikipedia is edited by a cult following of registered users (losers). Regardless, Wikipedia continues to be one of the most unreliable sources of inaccurate information about people. Jimmy Wales (ungodly owner of Wikipedia) is making enemies...
WICKED, WICKED WIKIPEDIA: THE CORRUPTION & COLLAPSE OF THE LEGENDARY PEOPLE’S ENCYCLOPEDIA
According to the preceding article, there are 5,600,000 articles on Wikipedia, totally 45,000,000 pages. I could show you thousands of Wikipedia articles about worldly celebrities, very ungodly people, where not one mention is made of their sins, faults or failures.
A Disgraceful Ungodly Bum: David Lee Roth
One such celebrity is David Lee Roth of the infamous rock band Van Halen. There is no mention of Mr. Roth's exploitation of female fans, of his promiscuity with thousands of groupies backstage! As a measure of how wicked America has become, one need look no further than the writers of Wikipedia, who condemn the righteous and justify the ungodly.
David Lee Roth, lead singer of the hellish Rock band, Van Halen, was known for his backstage whoremongering . . .“…from the stage, [Roth would call] out, ‘Blonde, pink top, sector A-4,’ pointing out the girls he wanted to see after the show. Whatever crew member’s name Dave saw flapping around the girl’s neck backstage at the end of the night would get a $100 bonus at breakfast the next morning. As far as intimacy went, it was a little like the invention of the drive-through window at McDonald’s, but the morale of tour staff remained high.”You won't find one mention of this or anything else negative about David Lee Roth on Wikipedia, which is an encyclopedia allegedly by, for, and of the public. No one in America has anything negative to say about Mr. Roth? David Lee Roth is a piece of trash! I'm not condemning anyone, for we are all guilty, rotten, hell-deserving sinners; but Mr. Roth parades his wickedness publicly and has destroyed the lives of millions of teenagers throughout his demonic influence. Van Halen's music is of the Devil—praising the Devil, fornication, prostitution, substance abuse, sexual immorality, rebellion and every sin imaginable. “...Who is on the Lord's side?...” (Exodus 32:26b).
SOURCE: NEW YORK POST; article titled, Why Rocker Never Struck Out; June 22, 2007
Former longtime Van Halen manager, Noel Monk, publicly reveals the lurid details of Van Halen, one of the most popular bands of the 1970's and 1980's in his new book titled, “Runnin' with the Devil.” In the book Monk tells how guitarist, Eddie Van Halen, met 20-year-old Valerie Bertinelli. On their wedding day, Bertinelli held Eddie's hair back while he was vomiting from booze. They were married for almost two decades, publicly admitting on national television that they both committed adultery during the marriage. The Van Halen band attracted crazed groupies and suffered constant STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) outbreaks. Drug and alcohol addiction was rampant, writes Monk. Eddie's brother, Drummer Alex Van Halen, faced alcoholism to the extent that at one point he hallucinated that there were “giant penises” coming out of the wall. The band ultimately collapsed in 1985 because of clashing egos along with drug and alcohol addictions.
The book goes on to mention how, shamefully, Eddie's and Alex's father used to get plastered drunk with his sons. At one point, David Lee Roth's manager said he was so out of control, that Dave needed to be restrained with a straitjacket. David Lee Roth is one of the most ungodly males to ever walk the face of this earth...
By Monk's account, one of the more disturbing aspects of original manager Marshall Berle's behavior was the way he filmed the band’s backstage shenanigans, including them having sex with groupies. Monk estimates “several hours” of indiscretions were shot, not surprisingly with Roth in “75 percent of the X-rated films.” It gets worse. Berle reportedly transferred the footage to VHS and held a private screening for a mostly female audience of secretaries and staff at Warner Bros.' Burbank offices. By Monk's account, the women were “predictably and understandably horrified.” Somewhere, the tapes are supposedly still out there.
None of this is mentioned on Wikipedia! The wicked world idolizes scum like David Lee Roth—an unsaved Jew who has consistently blasphemed almighty holy God and His inspired holy Word—with his shameful adulterous life. America has been deeply damaged by the rock music industry, turning our youth into sex-mongers, deviates, rebels, fornicators, adulterers and homosexuals! Americans today in large numbers have grown indifferent toward morality! Sex is the religion of rock music!!! Every rock band in history, without hardly an exception, has had its roots in sin! The Beatles were infatuated with sex, drugs and false religion! Van Halen merely took it further.
For those who understand the occult and their subversive agenda for a New World Order, you know that the theme of rebellion (represented by the number 13) is commonly used in the rock music industry, particularly heavy metal. From AC/DC's song “Shoot To Thrill,” to Ozzy Osbourne's song “ Suicide,” murder and death are promoted by the bands. AC/DC's song “She'll Be All Night Long,” has almost become the national anthem in America, which promotes the woeful sin of fornication (which has become prevalent across America). Another popular song beloved by Americans is AC/DC's blasphemous, “Highway To Hell.” Music doesn't make people sin, but it inspires sinful people to commit sin, stirring unholy passions. Adulterous men make adulterous movies that inspire adulterous people! The Devil knows just how to encourage people to sin! There are certain types of music that our flesh likes, but we ought not listen to. That is why I don't listen to Heavy Metal, even though it is appealing. Rock singers and band members have often been called “gods.” Men and women throw themselves at celebrities, surrendering their will and body to them, which is ungodly!
Rock singers are liars! I heard Angus and Malcolm Young from AC/DC explaining the meaning behind their album and song, “Highway To Hell.” They said that the song merely describes hard life on the road while touring. What a bunch of liars! They have to lie, to avoid more criticism than they already receive. AC/DC lies, claiming that it's just about the music, and not promoting Satan or Hell. If that be true, then how do they explain their next album in 1980, with hit songs like, “Hell's Bells” and “Back In Black”? The lyrics to Back In Black include phrases like, “If you're into evil you're a friend of mine!” In Hell's Bells Brian Johnson sings the sinful words, “I got my bell, I'm gonna take you to hell, I'm gonna get you, Satan get you!” If you are blind enough to think this is merely about hard times, for a rock band on the road while traveling from one city to the next, you're an idiot! The lyrics praise Satan, Hell and evil! I am tired of hearing wicked groups like Ozzy Osbourne, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Megadeth and other Satan-promoting bands, try to dismiss their Satanism with lame excuses. The entire rock music industry is saturated with occult symbols and Satanism, the god of this evil world whom they serve!
David Lee Roth is no hero, yet the ungodly modern newsmedia promote and honor these wicked celebrities, while sinfully tearing down godly preachers who uncompromisingly take a stand against sin in America! A preacher can make one mistake, and the world will condemn him for the rest of his life, and destroy his ministry; but an ungodly celebrity can sin thousands of times, and make as many mistakes as possible, and it is hardly noticed, if mentioned at all. This proves the Holy Bible to be true, confirming the Lord's teaching in John 15:19 that the world will love their own, but hate a born-again Christian, especially one who is living a godly life (2nd Timothy 3:12). When you are a Christian believer, the whole world is waiting for you to fall!
I am not condemning Mr. Roth, he is already under God's condemnation, as an unbeliever. Ecclesiastes 11:9, “Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.” Ecclesiastes 12:13-14, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”
If David Lee Roth doesn't repent toward God and get saved, he will be punished for his sins in the Lake of Fire forever and ever. Hell is coming up to meet David Lee Roth. Isaiah 14:9, “Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.” God is no respecter of person (Romans 2:11). Salvation is freely offered by God's grace through faith to all mankind. No one ever goes to Hell unless they willfully choose to reject the dear Savior. John 3:20 teaches that love for sin (evil) hinders many people from repenting toward the Gospel to be saved. John 3:19-20, “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.” Please don't let love for sin keep you from coming to the light (truth) of the Gospel to be saved.
A person may live in all manner of selfish pride, sexual immorality, drunkenness and wild living for a few decades, but after growing old (if they make it that far), they must die and face God's judgment (Hebrews 9:27; 10:31). 1st John 2:15-17, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” ...
“Some people say that life is a cesspool of darkness and despair.
Well, we in Van Halen are sailing through it on a yacht.” —David Lee Roth
The good times will come to a sudden end, I assure you dear reader! Please don't go to Hell.
A Godly Man of Character: Pastor Jack Hyles
Yet look under Dr. Jack Hyles (1926-2001) on Wikipedia, who faithfully pastored for 55-years and led millions of lost souls to Jesus Christ, who gave away millions-of-dollars to the poor, who helped countless millions of people his entire life. Wikipedia errantly and maliciously portrays Pastor Hyles as an evil sex-cult leader, a thief, an adulterer, a tyrant and everything else negative imaginable. Wikipedia's ungodly writers very dishonestly attempt to connect dots that simply don't connect. Wikipedia publishes many crimes and sins, committed by either former church members or former Hyles-Anderson College students, claiming a connection with Jack Hyles. That is so unfair and evil for anyone to do that! Don't think for a moment that God doesn't see that utter wickedness and hypocrisy!
Do you think any of Van Halen's fans have committed crimes? You know they have! So there must be a connection, right? What type of evil person tries to blame a person for what former acquaintances do? Did Dr. Hyles' preaching influence lives? Yes, of course! Did Van Halen's music influence lives? You better believe it did! As a result of Pastor Hyles' preaching, millions of people have come to Jesus Christ, forsaken a life of sin, and dedicated their life to serve God. Yet, a small handful of wicked critics slander Brother Hyles, trying to connect him with the crimes of a few sinners. Yet, Van Helen through their ungodly music have inspired millions of youth worldwide to commit all manner of adulterous sin, wickedness and debauchery, and yet no one criticizes “Diamond Dave” (a popular nickname for David Lee Roth) for what his fanatical fans do! Folks, there is no wickedness as woeful as what I have just shown you! Woe unto unjust critics! Ecclesiastes 11:9, “Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.”
Unjust critiques attempt to blame Pastor Hyles, for anything criminal that anyone who has ever been associated with Pastor Hyles' 55-years of ministry. It is so evil what Wikipedia is doing, to assassinate the name of the greatest preacher and man of God of the 20th century! Dr. Jack Hyles went to Heaven on February 6, 2001. Unbelievable, he is being blamed for the crimes and sins committed by other people, even after his death! Can you think of even one example of someone doing that to a rock singer, famous person or Hollywood celebrity? Have you read even one article where someone blames pervert Hugh Hefner for adulteries committed after he died and went to Hell on September 27, 2017? Hugh Hefner has much blood on his hands, who probably did more than any other man since 1953 (when he began publishing his ungodly Playboy magazine) to cause adultery, destroy marriages, and lay the shameful groundwork for the homosexual movement in the United States. Mr. Hefner was the scum of the earth! By the way, “reverends” Jesse Jackson and Martin Luther King Jr. were both ungodly Playboy magazine subscribers. Hefner was so blasphemous against God, that he even offered “free memberships” to ministers! I'm not kidding! Hell is hot enough!!!
I don't see anything on Wikipedia where Hugh Hefner is blamed for the sins and crimes of former employees, former associates and Playboy readers. Overall, Wikipedia portrays Hugh Hefner in a positive light, despite his evil life and millions of victims; whereas they portray Pastor Jack Hyles as a fiend and a monster, despite his lifetime of goodness, love, faithfulness and generosity toward people. Why is Pastor Jack Hyles so unfairly narrowed out and slandered for the wrongdoing of others? On Wikipedia, all of Dr. Hyles' family's sins and problems are mentioned. Wikipedia is smearing the good name of Jack Hyles—slandering his family, slandering his church, slandering his friends, slandering his legacy—making a bunch of baseless accusations! Revelation 12:10, “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.”
Wikipedia is evil, trying to connect dots to blame Pastor Hyles for the crimes of Hyles-Anderson College alumni. Literally thousands of people came and went through the halls, classrooms and chapel of HAC since 1972. How in the world can anyone honestly try to blame Dr. Hyles for what a dozen of those thousands of former students went and did? I cannot think of any other person in America who has been held to such a stringent, ridiculous, unfair and harsh scrutiny! NO ONE can withstand the attack of a critic! If you really want to find fault in a person, you easily will, because no one is perfect. Dr. Hyles' critics couldn't find enough fault in him to destroy his legacy, so they've sunk way low (like the Devil himself) to blame Pastor Hyles for the wrongdoing of anyone who was ever even associated with him. That is utterly evil! We are warned in the Scriptures that God will judge us in eternity with the very same measure that we judge others. Matthew 7:1-2, “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.” So the people who are attacking Dr. Hyles and his loved ones, connecting every little dot they can find, can expect for God to hold you to that same kind of scrutiny one day, and you won't stand a chance!!!
Ladies and gentlemen, a horrible crime is being committed on Wikipedia! If we were to scrutinize any famous person's life, looking under every rock for crimes committed by anyone who ever crossed paths with that person in the past, we could demonize that famous person, framing them in a negative light to destroy them. Even Jesus Christ Himself was closely associated with a scoundrel by the name of Judas Iscariot. Was it a negative reflection on the Lord Jesus Christ, because of the crimes later committed by Judas? Of course not. Hey, Jesus personally chose Judas to join His group as an apostle! Boy, Jesus must not be very spiritual, huh? I mean, if Jesus were really the Son of God, how could he lack the discernment to see the evil lurking in Judas? What is the point of trying to establish a link Brother Hyles with sexual crimes, being committed in other states, by other people, years after those people departed from the First Baptist Church in Hammond? It is so unjust, unfair and I think criminal! Dr. Hyles cannot be blamed for other people do!
Just because some of them once attended Hyles-Anderson College or the First Baptist Church of Hammond means absolutely NOTHING! You could apply the same unjust scrutiny to ANY institution or megachurch in the United States, and come to the same faulty conclusions!!! If you were to do a detailed investigation of how many former attendees of the Chicago White Sox baseball team, or Cubs at Wrigley Field, you'd have a long list of murderers, wife beaters, pedophiles, rapists, adulterers, thieves and all manner of sinners!!! So why do ungodly critics apply such unfair scrutiny to a church? The answer is found in John 15:19; Jesus told us that the world hates Christians! The dots do not connect concerning Pastor Jack Hyles, it is all false slander and hateful rhetoric!
Why do evil people try to connect such dots? For some it is envy. For others it is hatred for a promotion they didn't get. Robert Sumner is one of Pastor Hyles' harshest critics. When Dr. John R. Rice (1895-1980) died and went to Heaven, the Sword Of The Lord needed a successor to Brother Rice. Mr. Sumner was on the board of directors and sought the available position. Dr. Hyles was also on the board and advised them to appoint Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) instead, which they thankfully did! According to Brother Hyles, Robert Sumner never let it go and became his bitter enemy. Mr. Sumner publishes The Biblical Evangelist online, a source of some of the rottenest and most untrue slander against Jack Hyles and his family. So now you know THE TRUTH!
You won't find a better man, as far as good men go, than Jack Hyles; and moreover, Pastor Hyles was a godly man!!!
The Ungodly World Hates Jesus Christ
John 7:7, “The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.”
Let me ask you a question: How many sexual crimes have been committed by former professional sports athletes? Does anybody care? Here's a list of fifteen professional athletes who have been convicted of sexual assault. Several of them were members of the NBA (National Basketball Association). Does that mean we should connect dots to accuse the NBA of being a cesspool of sex perverts? That is what some very ungodly critics are doing to Jack Hyles, and God is going to punish them for it. Matthew 25:40, “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” The ungodly critic who are falsely accusing Pastor Hyles are falsely accusing Jesus Himself! None of the men who committed sexual crimes are Dr. Hyles' fault. What in the world makes him involved? That's right, nothing! They are baseless accusations rooted in hatred.
Theodore J. Kaczynski, the infamous Unabomber who murdered three people, was a Harvard alumni. ...
Before Ted Kaczynski became the infamous Unabomber, he was a gifted, 16-year-old student at Harvard University. Kaczynski may have been precocious in his intellect, but he was also impressionably young—and it was at Harvard where Kaczynski would be recruited to take part in a three-year-long, potentially abusive psychological experiment.
So is the president of Harvard complicit? Is that university executive to blame for the crimes committed by Ted Kaczynski, a former student? Of course not! So why are a bunch of evil people doing that very same unjust thing to Brother Hyles? The reason is because they are of the world and they hate the Lord! John 7:7, “The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.” Many of the people attacking Pastor Hyles are not born-again. Other critics are filled with pride, backslidden or immature believers, filled with carnality. Proverbs 14:14, “The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.” Proverbs 16:27, “An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire.”
Proverbs 16:27, “An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire.”
Please read that Bible verse again: AN UNGODLY MAN DIGGETH UP EVIL: AND IN HIS LIPS THERE IS AS A BURNING FIRE!!!
In other words, an ungodly person tries to cause trouble by searching for a person's sins and faults to destroy them! Since we are all imperfect sinners, anyone can be destroyed by a critic! In the classic MP3 sermon titled, “I Find No Fault In This Man!,” Dr. Hyles says, “Nobody Can Withstand The Attack Of A Critic!” That is so true! We are all imperfect people! We are all woeful sinners in the hands of an angry, but forgiving God! The prophet Daniel was above reproach, so his enemies needed to frame him. Likewise, Jesus was sinless and without blemish, so His enemies needed to frame Him to unjustly prosecute Him, and they did!
To the same degree that a person is not right with God they develop a critical spirit! The Lord was lowly and humble, not a slanderer of men. Jesus preached against the hypocritical religious crowd (John 7:44). Jesus loved righteousness and hated iniquity (Hebrews 1:9). We live in a wicked generation of critics today who make sinful assumptions, jump to damaging conclusions, don't give others the benefit of the doubt, connect dots that don't exist, and sinfully accuse others (which is what Satan does - Revelation 12:10). The believer who walks close with God has a humble spirit (James 4:6), always willing to forgive others “even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32).
The Greatness Of Pastor Jack Hyles
Jesus was not a selfish man, He lived to serve OTHERS! Philippians 2:3-5, “Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.” When I think of Dr. Jack Hyles, I think of tens of thousands of poor Chicago children and hurting families being helped through the Bus Ministry. I think of the Prison Ministry. I think of the Truck Stop Ministry. I think of the Sailor Ministry. I think of the Fisherman's Club and the Phoster Club. These were ALL effective soulwinning outreach ministries, reaching sinners for the Lord Jesus Christ! I don't expect the naive unsaved person to understand such beauty. John 14:17, “Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”
Brother Hyles was not a cult leader—he was a responsible man, an uncompromising preacher, a shrewd businessman, a gifted orator, a genuine friend, and most of all a faithful man of God! Jack Hyles was a sinner, just like you and me. Albeit, Pastor Hyles denied the horrible accusations against him (in a 1989 MP3 sermon called, “Weathering The Storm”). It is a tough love sermon! Dr. Hyles called that sorrowful time in his ministry, “The Battle.” I was happily enrolled as an active student in Hyles-Anderson College during “The Battle.” I drove 50 miles from Chicago to Crownpoint, Indiana, each school day (often through rain, ice and snow); and then after classes I drove 70 miles to my job in Melrose Park, Illinois; and then 10 miles back home to Chicago. I did that for 8 long years to get my pastoral training! Brother Hyles called us his “war-time students,” and apologized to us for the conflict, which were never his intentions for us. I am proud to have been there, standing faithfully by the greatest Christian I have ever known. It is easy for a bunch of losers, who've never done anything for God, to sit back idly and criticize God's man for any reason they can find or fabricate.
Dr. Hyles rightly taught us that we were in bootcamp, preparing for spiritual war in the jungles of the world! I gratefully attended HAC between 1985 and 1993. I am so honored and privileged to have been there! Wow, I got to be under Pastor Jack Hyles' legendary ministry for 8 years. I am so thankful to everyone at HAC and FBCH during that time! I wouldn't trade that for all the money, fame or pleasures in the world. I love the men who influenced me. They were imperfect men and imperfect leaders, but they were real. By the way, you never know who you are influencing when you are a teacher or ministry leader. I could write a book of the “little things” that I noticed day-by-day at Hyles-Anderson College and First Baptist Church of Hammond, both good and bad. Always remember that somebody is always watching you! Proverbs 10:12, “Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.” People are people are people!
When I think of Brother Hyles, I think of a generous man who gave away all that he had to help OTHERS. I think of poor widows whose rent was paid by Pastor Hyles. I think of guest preachers who shared the pulpit at speaking engagements, and Dr. Hyles gave both love offerings to the other preacher! I think of a woman with some rotted teeth, and Brother Hyles paid her dental bill, because she couldn't afford to pay for it. I think of all the people who borrowed me and asked Dr. Hyles to co-sign, and he did. I think of all the times that Brother Hyles smiled at others, when he was tired and didn't feel like smiling. I think of the time when Pastor Hyles told a young man named C.W. Fisk, “I love you!” I think of Dr. Hyles' gentleness! Psalms 18:35, “Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.”
Dr. Hyles was an excellent problem solver! Whereas many pastors sit clueless and reluctant to get involved or take action, Pastor Hyles did something to help the people he counseled. Brother Hyles was so rare! I love a take-action kind of pastor, a leader, someone you could follow and be confident in. Many famous men have used the phrase, “Either lead, follow, or get out of the way!” That saying reminds me of Dr. Hyles as a strong leader. There was no cult, only weak-minded people who fail to understand that Brother Hyles was a hard-working, loving, prayerful, Spirit-filled, passionate, thinking man of principles and truth.
It is amazing how someone who has never even met Dr. Hyles, will read a few articles on the slandernet, and then assume they know all about Jack Hyles. YouTube loudmouth Bryan Derringer comes to mind, with his hateful 4-part anti-Jack Hyles video series. I don't even want to link to them. What a bunch of horrible assumptions, exaggerations and blatant lies! Bryan is so deranged in his mind that he thinks Dr. Russell Anderson is a member of Bohemian Grove! Okay, right, sure why not, and I have a cottage on the moon! I have determined that Mr. Dellinger is not saved, teaching works salvation. Bryan claims that Pastor Steven Anderson is not saved. That is insanity! My friend, you can read all the history books you want about George Washington, our nation's first U.S. President, but the truth is that without actually meeting him, you could never really know who he was. Kindly, Bryan doesn't know the first truthful thing about Jack Hyles. All he knows is the garbage he's read on the slandernet!
From all that I've seen and read in books and documentaries, George Washington seems like he was a good man of character and faith in God, although there is debate whether or not he was a born-again believer; but the truth is that I do not know George Washington. The best history source to know about a person is their own writings. I advise people to listen to Pastor Hyles' thousands of sermons, and read his dozens of books, and let those speak for him! I would encourage all my website readers to judge Dr. Jack Hyles by his own sermons and books, and not by the ungodly slander of some disgruntled critics. You can discern Pastor Hyles' love, sincerity and walk with God in his genuine preaching.
The same is true about Pastor Steven L. Anderson. I actually didn't like him at first over 10 years ago. Out of curiosity I began to listen to his often offensive and shocking sermon content. But as time passed, the Holy Spirit (Who indwells me as a born-again Christian) beared witness with my spirit, that Pastor Anderson is 100% real and has a passion for the Lord. Many people criticize Brother Anderson, accusing him of being hateful against people; but if you listen to his sermons with a good and an honest heart, as a righteous person, you'll begin to greatly appreciate his Bible-preaching! I see that Pastor Anderson has grown more compassionate over the years. Being a parent humbles a man, and changes him over time, making him more compassionate and understanding. That is my humble opinion.
I regularly thank God for Jack Hyles (1926-2001), and his godly mother that raised him, Coystal Hyles (1887-1984). I cannot imagine what would have happened to my life if there had never been a man named Jack Hyles. I might not be saved. I was saved under the preaching of a Hyles-Anderson graduate in Chicago. When I think of how miraculous it all was, I feel so blessed. I was saved during a very small window, because the pastor under whom I was saved, only came to Chicago's Northside for a couple years. If I would have been born a little earlier or later than 1967, or that pastor had not come to Chicago in the late 1970's, or there hadn't been a Baptist church nearby my home, or any one of hundreds of possible different circumstances, I likely wouldn't be saved, and worse, I'd probably be dead or in prison. I was going down a wrong path as a child, but thank God I got saved at age 13. I still remember the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, which was something very new and real in my soul, that didn't exist prior to getting saved. When you get saved, God's Holy Spirit presence becomes very evident in you! It was like a switch going off in my life, but I didn't see it as clearly until I looked back in hindsight decades later. I cannot say enough good about Pastor Jack Hyles. I love God with all my mind, heart and soul, for sending that dear soulwinning man of God to the Chicago area!
Let the Devil's Crowd Make Accusations; Christians Are Hidden in Jesus Christ
Remember, just because someone hurls an accusation doesn't make it true! I can say anything about anyone, and they won't be able to defend them self against it. Once the accusation is out there publicly, it becomes a matter of sole public opinion. Professional liars know that once an accusation is made public, seeds of doubt and persistent questions are permanently planted. Is it true? Could it be true? That is why I don't waste my time trying to defend myself against slander, because it wouldn't matter. My friends don't need for me to defend myself, and my enemies wouldn't believe anything I say anyway. That is why Satan makes accusations in the first place, to cast doubt and destabilize a Christian's reputation. There has never been a more godly man than Pastor Jack Hyles! God doesn't judge a man, as we do, by how few sins and mistakes he made throughout his life; God judges a man by the sum total of his life on earth, which includes all the good things that he did too! The greatest sin of all is living an idle life as a Christian!
I know a preacher, a godly man, who was accused of raping an underaged teenage boy long ago. I am fully convinced that he didn't do it, and he said publicly that he didn't do it, but the stigma sticks and that preacher has suffered greatly because of that slander. I would never mention the preacher's name, but he and his family have had to leave his home town, and relocate elsewhere to get away from the fallout caused by the accusations. I pray for the man and his family, and my heart goes out to him. Dr. Hyles was slandered by ungodly critics. I am used to being slandered by ungodly critics. Kindly, God will deal with them all (Matthew 7:1-2; 1st Peter 4:17; Romans 14:10-12; James 4:12; Romans 12:19-21). One encouraging truth that I learned long ago is that my enemies are really Jesus' enemies (Matthew 25:40). My life is hid in Jesus Christ as a child of God (Colossians 3:1-2). The Devil only comes to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10). Romans 8:34 teaches that no one can condemn a redeemed child of God. When someone slanders a Christian, they are bringing heavy judgment upon their own head! I already have eternal life, presently! Although my flesh will perish, my spirit cannot die (2nd Corinthians 5:1, 8). There will be no break in my soul's conscience when I die. Amen!
I see the utter hypocrisy of the world, favoring the wicked while condemning the righteous! Hollywood is so evil that lawyers actually drew-up legal documents, which prevented women employees from reporting sexual harassment from Hollywood pervert executives! All lf those lawyers, judges and executives should be in prison for a very long time! This type of ungodliness is common among the rich, where they get away with unthinkable crimes. Search the internet for a perverted Jew named Harvey Weinstein, a sick-minded womanizer who groped over 80 women in Hollywood, and as an executive in the movie industry was protected by scum lawyers and judges, until he got caught! I am starting not to link to news websites anymore, because the internet is becoming so exploitive and unethical toward people. I am sick of the buttonholing, annoying pop ups windows, and thuggish treatment of others by ruthless businesses today. People nowadays will economically rape, kill and steal to make-money, and I am against it all!
The Importance of Being Ethical As a Christian
We are living in evil times. People are becoming so ruthless. I stopped giving out my e-mail years ago, because of the abusive way that people have become. I am tired of “unsubscribing” to e-mails that I never signed-up for. It is abusive! Many Americans have become cutthroat, manipulating their neighbours in a desperate attempt to make money. Over my dead body! I am an ethical person, as a Christian. “Ethics” is doing the right thing, which may not necessarily be sinful not to do.
For example: Dr. David Gibbs Jr. tells a wonderful heart-touching true story about his grandfather. His grandaddy was in the cattle business. At a local auction, the Gibbs' family succeeding in buying their distant neighbours large herd of cattle far below what they were actually worth. In fact, they made a killing! The distant neighbour suffered a devastating financial loss. It was legal, as a consequence of how the auction process works. David Gibbs' grandfather gave him an envelope with a large sum of money to go give their distant neighbour, who suffered a loss. When the man's wife saw the money, her nose bled and she cried. Her husband came to her side. She said, “What kind of man does this?” Her husband rightly replied, “A Christian!” I love that true story! I want to be that kind of a Christian!!! David Gibbs grandfather did the ethical thing!
The ungodly people attacking Pastor Hyles couldn't care less about being ethical. The ungodly newsmedia, who destroy people's lives, couldn't care less about being ethical. Being ethical is synonymous with caring! I care, and I want to care more. I want to be ethical. I want to do right and please the Lord in all I do. I have never claimed to be a good Christian, but I want to be, by God's grace. We need a revival of caring in America. Homelessness would disappear overnight if the right people in positions of power cared. Everything rises and falls on leadership! We don't have Godly leadership in the United States. Every time that someone tries to do what is right, like President Trump wanting to put the Holy Bible back into public schools, someone else in power opposes it!
We need a revival of caring! Attitudes are contagious, is your worth catching? The newsmedia have a wrong critical attitude, destroying everything around them. Dr. Hyles' critics have the wrong negative attitude, who've never built anything, they just tear down and destroy. Pastor Hyles had a proper attitude, always wanting to put the past behind and move forward for God in faith to build. All of the childish grudge-holding today in the churches is counterproductive and sinful. There is little love anymore in most churches. It is merely a game, where a group of religious people show up to play church three times a week. That perfectly describes the shallow Pensacola Christian College (PCC) crowd in Florida. Don't expect any of them to contend for the faith concerning the modern corrupt Bible versions, they are too preoccupied making money. They are absent from the battle over God's Word, and they couldn't care less!
Thank you to all my loyal web visitors, for your patience with me over the years. I know I am not the best writer, often straying away from the main topic, but by God's grace I do get the point across. I am a porcupine preaching, so people GET THE POINT! I love that! I heard that saying from Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982). We need porcupine preachers!
By the way, I frequently like to give the birth and death dates of people I mention in articles, because I think it reminds us of life's briefness, our duty to fear God and keep His commandments (Ecclesiastes 12:13), and just to remember the person. I like doing it.
I praise God that He saved me as a 13 year old youth, the same age as Dr. Curtis Hutson (1934-1995). I shudder to think where my life would have been all these years, if the Lord hadn't found me and saved me. I love Jesus Christ. I am not the Christian I should be, but I pray for God to help me do better each day, with His help, to be what God wants me to be. I am listening to the King James Bible right now, and love hearing it. I encourage you to listen to the Bible daily. Do you think Dr. Hyles hateful critics listen to the Holy Bible each day? You know they don't!
By the way, I have gone onto Wikipedia.org several times to correct misinformation about Pastor Jack Hyles, and each time within a day someone has completely removed my positive comments and put the garbage back. The ungodly slanderers are relentless! They disrespect Dr. Hyles, as this ungodly generation often does, referring to him merely as “Hyles.” It would have been a cold day in Hell, before any student at Hyles-Anderson College spoke with such disrespect about Dr. Jack Hyles and got away with it! Amen to that! To this day, as evident in all my writings, I use proper titles when referring to my elders. I just uploaded some articles exposing Dr. William Grady as a heretic, sadly so, but he accuses Dr. Hyles of baptizing 100,000 false converts! That is so wicked and wrong! In the following MP3 sermon, Pastor Jack Hyles exposes a bunch of false plans of salvation, including merely praying a prayer to be saved. “FUNDAMENTAL HERESY” (Good stuff!). Wikipedia is very unethical and corrupt!
Granted, having said that, I do admit that leading people to pray a “sinner's prayer” is dangerous to use, for this very reason. I don't use it anymore. The Bible says we are saved simply by “BELIEVING,” nothing else (John 6:28-29). When Cornelius was saved in Acts chapter 10, no prayer was prayed; nor did the apostle Peter attempt to lead anyone to pray. I don't like using the Roman's Road, which ultimately leads the lost person to “repeat after me!” I am against the “1-2-3 follow me,” way of leading a person to Christ, because I've met too many lost people, who thought they were saved, merely because they prayed a prayer. You don't get saved by praying, as Dr. Hyles correctly points out in his sermon, “FUNDAMENTAL HERESY.” However, just because some people misunderstood the Gospel, doesn't mean that 100,000 people “got wet” (as Dr. Grady claims) without being saved.
Kindly, Bill Grady alleges that the church's steady membership at 6,500 for several years, proves that no one was really saved; otherwise he says they would have increased the church's attendance. That is a flawed observation, because families are always leaving while new ones are coming. College students graduate and move on to their ministries, while new one's come. Brother Grady has no legitimate argument! And the truth is that the church DID grow! Dr. Grady is making false claims. How do you think it went from a church of 800 members in 1959, to a membership over 100,000 members (with a weekly attendance of over 15,000 people, including their Spanish Church) by 2001? The First Baptist Church of Hammond (FBCH) has an entirely separate Spanish church, which is one of the largest in the United States! So don't tell me the lie that FBCH didn't grow because Pastor Hyles preached a shallow Gospel. It simply isn't true!
I just heard this Bible verse about the apostle Paul. Acts 22:22, “And they gave him audience unto this word, and then lifted up their voices, and said, Away with such a fellow from the earth: for it is not fit that he should live.” From listening to his countless critics, you'd think that Bible verse was talking about Jack Hyles! I encourage you to think for yourself friend, with a humble heart of gratitude toward God. We are all so undeserving of God's love and mercy. Jesus was not a selfish man, He lived to serve OTHERS! Philippians 2:3-5, “Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.” Many people talk about living for OTHERS, but few people actually do it. Pastor Jack Hyles truly lived a sacrificial life for OTHERS! Critics live for themselves.

“Blindness has enveloped the Christian church nationwide!”

NOBODY IS LAUGHING IN HELL!!!
Did you know that you don't have to ask Jesus to save you? God has already told you how to be saved, that is, by simply believing that His Son died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and raised up from the dead three days later. Christ raised up from the dead, which means that God the Father accepted His Son's payment for the sins of the world. Christ suffered on the cross so that we wouldn't have to suffer in a literal Hell forever. Amen! You don't have to bow your head to be saved. You don't have to pray. You don't have to do anything except believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins, and make that your only hope for Heaven!
Nothing Can Replace The Holy Bible!

“Salvation is based upon purely what Jesus Christ has done. And if you've trusted Jesus Christ here, you're saved forever! Nothing in your life, nothing in your death, angels, principalities, nothing—nothing in your future—could ever undo that relationship that has been made when you trusted Jesus Christ as Savior. And there are many people who are confused over this whole thing.” —Pastor Hank Lindstrom (1940-2008), a quote from the classic MP3 sermon titled, “How Permanent Is Your Salvation?”
“There are many people who name the name of Jesus Christ, who are not saved, because they're trusting in living the Christian life, or in their works, or in some efforts that they're doing, in order to obtain their salvation.” —Pastor Hank Lindstrom (1940-2008), a quote from the classic MP3 sermon titled, “How Permanent Is Your Salvation?”
