The Most Discouraging Thing To Me As a
is the Shallow Bob Jones University Crowd
by David J. Stewart | May 2017 | Updated March 2018
2nd Corinthians 2:17, “For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.”
The Bob Jones University (BJU) crowd (i.e., their staff, president, graduates and supporters) are the biggest source of discouragement to me personally as a born-again believer. I'm not alone, for the Lord Jesus Himself said that He vomits out LUKEWARM CHURCHES. Revelation 3:15-16, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” My friend, what does the Lord say about your church? What does God say about your Bible college? What does God say about you? Clearly, BJU and their associate churches are not right with God. They really discourage me!
The Bob Jones crowd stink with the stench of apostasy and sinful compromise! I say that kindly, but with the same surety that I am a born-again believer. Take for example their stance on the Holy Bible. The BJU crowd cannot even discern which Bible God wrote. BJU reasons that there cannot possibly be only one trustworthy Bible in the English language. Taken by itself, that type of rational sounds reasonable, doesn't it? But what they don't (and won't) tell you is that there are two major Greek sources, which totally contradict each other in numerous key passages concerning Christ's deity. The satanic Alexandrian manuscripts (or Minority Text) from which nearly every modern Bible is translated (e.g., the New International Version or NIV) attacks Christ's deity, removes the Godhead and diminishes the preeminence of the Lord Jesus Christ. Only the Textus Receptus (or Received Text) from which our beloved authorized King James Bible was translated in 1611 is reliable.
Birds With a Broken Feather Fly Crooked Together
And may I say, kindly, the senior pastor of the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam needs to get saved, because he has foolishly bought into a satanic a false Gospel of partial faith in Christ plus works. I have no hesitation to expose false prophets! I won't mention his name, to be kind, but I personally heard him say from his own pulpit (and he should be fired): “It is not enough to just admit you are a sinner, you must turn away from a lifestyle of sin!” Ladies and gentleman, that man is NOT SAVED!!! And he is pastoring a large church that is considered a gateway to Asia. Oh my God! Is it any wonder that in his office, he has the complete set of Dr. John MacArthur's perverted Bible commentaries? I think not. Mr. MacArthur is a religious bastard, not a genuine saved Christian, a bigtime false prophet, who is so corrupt that he says there is no such thing as a childhood conversation. My God in Heaven, why would any pastor follow such an ungodly man? The reason why is because Mr. MacArthur says many great things in his teachings. MacArthur is a fantastic public speaker, he has a suave personality, he is very likable (just like Satan himself, who is a beautiful liar!).
My friend, if you truly understand just how evil these modern Bible versions are, then you would be upset too, if you love God and truth at all. Bob Jones University supports Satan's Bibles. The shocking and horrifying truth is that these modern perversions, in many cases, AREN'T BASED UPON ANY MANUSCRIPT; they are the mere paraphrases of wicked men, who only changed the Word of God to satisfy a legal copyright requirement by the U.S. government. You see, in order to copyright your new bastard Bible version, it must contain substantially different content than other existing Bible versions.
And to no surprise, kindly, Harvest Baptist Church (HBC) uses the Easy-To-Read Version (ERV), which perverts Mark 1:15 to errantly say that to be saved, you must change your life! HBC kicked me out of their church in 2014, when they wrongly called Dr. Jack Hyles and me “a cult” for exposing the Devil's counterfeit Alexandrian Bible versions. BOB JONES UNIVERSITY IS THE CULT! Yes they are! HBC IS THE CULT! I was a friend to them. As Dr. Tom Ferrell rightly said (ironically he said that at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam), “A friend helps a friend to see.” Well, when I tried to help them see, I was reprimanded and bullied out of the only church family I had known for a year in 2014. The pastors couldn't have cared less. I told them THE TRUTH! But while God wants us to SPEAK UP, the Devil wants us to SHUT UP! Those pastors at HBC are helping the Devil.
“As long as I've got breath to breathe, I'll not dip my sails. Let me tell you something—This battle we have tonight is a battle between the new-evangelical crowd and fundamentalist crowd. What it is!” —Dr. Jack Hyles, a quote from the excellent MP3 sermon titled, "Nebuchadnezzar, God's Servant"
Those snobby pastors at Harvest will likely lie and make up their own dungheap story, but I have e-mails proving that they coldheartedly refused to allow me to even attend their church or men's prayer meeting on Saturday, even after I offered to do whatever it took to make things right with them. You see, they offer a fake forgiveness that doesn't include mercy. That tells me they don't walk with God, because they lack God's unconditional love, true forgiveness and compassion. You'd think at a minimum they would have done something to help a voice crying out for help. I did humbly ask for their help, because I need a church family. They just don't care, plain and simple, or perhaps they are shameful cowards (or both), but either way, they ought not be pastors.
No one who selectively cares about people should be entrusted with the honor and title of being a pastor. I humbly asked for their help at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, but was told to go away. All I did was share books and sermons to help others, with no ill intention, God knows my heart. That was my big fault... CARING ABOUT TRUTH!!! I didn't do anything behind the pastor's back. I gave him books too. When I gave the senior pastor Dr. Al Lacy's awesome book, NIV: The Antichrist's Bible, that was the last straw and they axed me like John the Baptist! The associate pastor, a shameful Bob Jones Graduate, literally quoted the Scripture about Paul not wanting to have anything to do with John Mark, and they used that against me. What ungodly and shameful men!!! The truth is that IF YOU TELL THE TRUTH, in today's apostate and crappy churches, you will be thrown out as an evildoer!!! Outside The Gate With Jesus (MP3 sermon by Dr. Jack Hyles, “Jesus has been outside the camp all the time!”)
I have numerous e-mails from their church pastor, telling me that I am not welcome at Harvest Baptist Church anymore. 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.” In the many years to follow being kicked out of Harvest, I was very lonely and without a church family. No one cared about me to stay in contact with me. Harvest abandoned me quickly. I humbly requested permission simply to attend their church services, promising that I would keep quiet, because I desperately need fellowship with a church. This is even after they horribly called me “a cult” for telling the truth. If they can kick truth-tellers out, then I have every right to expose them for telling bold-faced lies! I still have love in my heart for the folks at Harvest, and I miss them. They have a high turnover rate at HBC, so many of the acquaintances I made while there are no doubt gone. They were never friends toward me, but I was a friend toward them. They need much better pastors, that's for certain. But if they just want to run a religious business, which is what they are presently doing, then they already have what they want; but it's a lukewarm church at best, that recently honored lame, Mormon-praising, Ravi Zacharias in June of 2017.
I realize that some people think to be ethical, we should ignore the activity of what others are doing in the churches. I think that is an irresponsible attitude amongst believers. To say nothing about evil which has crept into the churches is akin to hobnobbing with the enemy during a war. Could you imagine being a soldier in World War II, fighting as an American against the invading communists from the north to defend Korea? And while fighting one of your peer soldiers is going around selling BB guns, convincing many soldiers to trade in their powerful M16 rifle for a child's play BB gun instead? What do you think those fighting soldiers would do? I'll tell you, they'd keep using their M16's to fight the enemy, because they know that a BB guns is worthless on the battlefield. Likewise, these modern paraphrases are so watered-down, doctrinally deficient, corrupt and horribly wrong on salvation. Someone needs to care and expose all this evil. God is recruiting! Will you join the battle my friend, as a soldier for Jesus Christ (2nd Timothy 2:3-4).
“I'd rather be a prostitute, or one who sells prostitutes, at the Judgment of Christ, than to be a professor who shakes the faith of young people.” —Dr. Jack Hyles (a quote from the sermon titled, “It Seemeth Right”)
The Truth is More Precious Than Gold
Pastor Max D. Younce presented an excellent 16-part lecture in 1997 about the King James Bible. The lecture is well worth your time to hear, in which Dr. Younce explains how the new versions in many cases aren't translated from ANY ancient manuscript, they are the mere fabricated words of greedy men who seek only to make money. Folks, our churches are a mess today, because of colleges like Bob Jones, who go along to get along with the Devil's religious crowd to make money. They are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. In fact, BJU is helping to damn souls to Hell, because all the new Bibles pervert Romans 10:9 to teach Lordship Salvation. Many of the new versions pervert the meaning of “repentance” in Mark 1:15 and Hebrews 6:1. Someone needs to get upset, care and speak out, because the folks at Bob Jones University don't care, and they and their lousy graduates are corrupting churches!!! I wish they would leave the island of Guam and stop hurting the people on the island. TRUTH MATTERS!!! If the integrity of the Gospel and the purity of God's words matter, then I am 100% right in my position and disposition!!! I have the Spirit of Christ and a Christlike spirit!!!
The Bob Jones crowd are A.W.O.L. from the battle of the ages over the Holy Bible, sitting idle while their brethren go to war alone. Tears will flow at the Judgment Seat of Christ in eternity, and I believe the only reward those wicked compromised pastors will ever receive is their earthly salary. BJU is leading the way in apostasy concerning the Holy Bible. Also, please read, BJU Apostasy! Shame on the Bob Jones crowd for not standing up and fighting for the purity, preservation and inspiration of God's Word!!! They really discourage me! They disrespect me, for telling THE TRUTH, because they disrespect God's Word...
“When we do not respect God, we do not respect anybody else that needs
—Quote from the sermon titled, “BONDAGE,” by Evangelist Lester Roloff (1914-1982)
No one respects God who promotes multiple conflicting Bible versions! The Bob Jones crowd and their associated pastors hypocritically preach about the importance of THE TRUTH, while using and promoting (even publishing) multiple Bible versions, which confuses everyone. Ironically, they've accused me of confusing people! They are already confused. If I'm confusing people by telling them that God only wrote ONE BOOK, then what does that say about those wicked pastors who wrongly accuse me of confusing others? THEY ARE PULLING ON THE SAME ROPE AS THE DEVIL!!! I long to be vindicated in eternity by the Lord Himself regarding the King James Bible debate, and see those wicked BJU pastors reprimanded and see them lose eternal rewards. I pray for it!!!
It would be a grand insult for God to let the BJU crowd go undisciplined, when faithful believers like me where shunned, ostracized, hated, laughed at, mocked, ridiculed, suffered loneliness, despised and grudged against by the BJU crowd, all because I told the truth and was willing to lose fellowship and church family over it. And I did lose my church family in 2014, when they told me to cease and desist to proclaim the purity of the King James Bible. James 5:9, “Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.” They still hold a grudge against me, rejecting me, wanting nothing at all to do with me, and I have done nothing but tell the truth and love them in the Lord. I still suffer today because of their unkindness, apostasy and wickedness, but the Lord is my avenger. Matthew 25:45, “Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.”
The apostate Bob Jones crowd preach from the pulpit about morality, while their dress codes permit their women to wear pants and other immodest clothing. It really discourages me! How can a pastor preach (shallow preaching mind you) against immodestly, while church and school staff members are wearing slacks, halter tops and pants? Please understand that I NEVER condemn anybody for the way they dress. If you come to church in a miniskirt, I am going to treat you with with all due respect, because you are still a person. I am different than most believers, in that I actually treat others the way that I would like to be treated. That's The Golden Rule taught in 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.”
You're only as good a Christian as you are thankful toward God and others, and you express it so. I recently mailed some audio Bibles as a gift to a BJU graduate, at a local church. I spent $60. They were King James Bibles by Alexander Scourby. The person didn't even thank me. Real great testimony, huh? That's the Bob Jones crowd. I mean, why should their graduates care about gratitude, when they don't even care about the purity of God's Word? I am hated and despised by the Bob Jones crowd, because I have taken an uncompromising stand against them for their errant position of the Word of God. But I am not going to stop loving them and praying for them, no matter how much they do me wrong. Do you know that my biggest enemies and critics aren't witches, homosexuals, abortionists and idolaters? It is fellow professed fundamental Baptists. Go figure! They sure aren't fundamental anymore! Nothing makes me feel as lonely and discouraged as the Bob Jones camp.
“The beginning of greatness is to be little; the increase of greatness is to be less; the perfection of greatness is to be nothing.” —Pastor Dwight L. Moody (1837-1899)
The Bob Jones crowd offer a shallow form of superficial forgiveness that still holds a grudge. They teach a shallow form of modesty that still allows women staff members and students to wear pants. They preach about the importance of truth, while allowing and promoting multiple conflicting Bible versions. The average BJU church today has dozens of different Bibles versions floating around in the congregation. Who's confused? They are, of course! I became a born-again believer at age 13 and I've never used anything other than the precious inspired King James Bible!!!!!!!
I look to the Lord when I get discouraged. 1st Samuel 30:6, “And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.” Where I live, the nearest and biggest church in town is the Bob Jones crowd. I love them so much, yet they don't love me. The senior pastor since 1999 (who is a big John MacArthur fan) has openly in writing rejected my humble request to even visit their church. Due to my pain medications, it is difficult for me to drive long distances. I can do it, but fall asleep behind the wheel sometimes. The lukewarm Harvest Baptist Church is only five minutes away from where I stay.
Yet, they don't even want me to even sit and hear the Bible taught. They despise me because I am a truth-teller, a fellow-helper to the truth, and I AM RIGHT!!! I know how the Apostle Paul felt when he said in 2nd Corinthians 12:15, “And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.” Telling the truth is the greatest act of love. I am simply telling THE TRUTH about the precious King James Bible. I am despised so much by the BJU crowd that they don't want anything to do with me, but that's OK, I'm outside the gate with Jesus.
