Calvinism Is A Curse Upon America's Churches

by David J. Stewart | March 2020

1st Corinthians 3:14-15, “If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”

       Our text Bible passage is PROOF that a person who is saved, won't always live a sanctified life. In fact, this man in 1st Corinthians 3:15 lived such a life filled with sin, that the Bible says he only made it to Heaven, receiving no rewards, “SAVED; YET SO AS BY FIRE”! That exposes the teachings of John Calvin (1509-1564), commonly knows as “Calvinism,” as false and of the Devil.

By the way, today's my birthday, March 5th, and I am 53 years

Calvinism is a false religion—a heretical system of religious dogmas that violate the plainest teachings of the inspired Word of God. Calvinism is as an infectious disease in our churches today. Dear reader, I'm not the least worried about the new Coronavirus, which killed the first person on January 9, 2020 in China. I'm far more worried about the Calvinism virus, which has infected upwards of 75% of Baptist churches today, sending millions of people to the Lake of Fire!

I am greatly concerned at the sore evil I see upon America's churches today, particularly independent fundamental Baptists! I listened to a sermon this past week by Pastor Andy Bloom, in which he teaches Calvinism (aka, Lordship Salvation). Moody Bible Institute today is saturated with the Devil's lies of Calvinism, admitting on their apostate college website to being “generally Calvinistic” in their doctrines. Moody Radio has 71 owned and operated radio stations, and hundreds of affiliates worldwide.[1] Folks, I am alarmed! Moody Publishers sinfully promotes heretic Pastor John MacArthur![2] Mr. MacArthur teaches that children cannot be saved! In the complicated theological world of John MacArthur, salvation is too difficult for a child to grasp, because getting saved requires a full surrender of the body, mind and will to Christ's Lordship. Friends, that is not “the simplicity that is in Christ” (2nd Corinthians 11:3), which is “THE GOSPEL.” What saith the Scripture? The Apostle Paul said:

Galatians 3:1-3, “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?

I cannot emphasize enough that you understand the Epistle of Galatians. God gave us this book of the Bible to teach us that salvation is solely “BY THE HEARING OF FAITH,” and it is not perfected “by the works of the law,” that is, “by the flesh”! We are saved when we HEAR THE GOSPEL (GOOD NEWS), and we have FAITH IN THAT GOOD NEWS! Salvation is that simple! Even a little child can BELIEVE! It is true that a Christian SHOULD live for Christ (Romans 3:31), but not MUST (that would be works), and not WILL (that would be Calvinism). Evangelist Ray Comfort preaches “ANOTHER GOSPEL” (2nd Corinthians 11:4) of fear and uncertainty, instilling in his listeners a sense of constant worry that they are not saved. I've even had web visitors confide in me that they contemplated suicide because of Mr. Comfort's damnable heresies...

The Psychological Effects And Trauma Caused By Lordship Salvation (it eliminates all hope!)

The proper Gospel mindset is that you can go out and sin all you want, and still be 100% securely saved, not having to worry or doubt if you're really saved! What? You read correctly! That doesn't mean God gives His children permission to live in sin, God forbid! Romans 3:30-31, “Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.” When we came to Jesus Christ “THROUGH FAITH,” we reached “THE END OF THE LAW” (Romans 10:3-4), but God still expects us to obey the law AS HIS CHILDREN. If we don't God scourges and chastises us (Hebrews 12:6-8). God is not an absent parent!

Perhaps you've heard the Bible mistaught regarding the following Scripture. 2nd Corinthians 13:5, “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?” Paul said to “EXAMINE YOURSELVES, WHETHER YE BE IN THE FAITH.” A common false teaching by Calvinists (i.e., the Lordship Salvation crowd) is that Paul told them to make sure they were really saved, due to all the sins mentioned in the Epistle of 1st Corinthians. However, Paul does not tell them to forsake their sins to prove they are saved. Instead, Paul says in 2nd Corinthians 13:5b, “Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?The test (or proof) of salvation is simply whether a person has Jesus Christ in you (i.e., the indwelling Holy Spirit, which Romans 8:9 calls “THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST”). That is why Paul asked the Galatian church in Galatians 3:2, “This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?” You get the Holy Spirit the instant you get saved (1st Corinthians 3:16-17).

Has Your Church Been Infected?

Please RUN AWAY from Moody Bible Institute!!! I am shocked and saddened how their entire church has flip-flopped from being 100% FREE GRACE in the early 20th century, to becoming hellbound CALVINISTS since Pastor Harry Ironside (1876-1951) went to Heaven in 1951.

“Calvinism” is often summarized with the acronym TULIP:

TOTAL DEPRAVITY - Man cannot be saved unless God chooses him

UNCONDITIONAL ELECTION - God has already decided who will be saved

LIMITED ATONEMENT - Jesus only died for believers, not all humanity

IRRESISTIBLE GRACE - God forces those whom He has chosen to get saved

PERSEVERANCE OF THE SAINTS - A believer will persevere in holiness or else they were never saved

If your church teaches any of this garbage, you are not in a Bible-believing church, you are in a religious CULT!

Having said that, John MacArthur's 'Grace To You' ministry and 'Grace Community Church' are a demonic cult! Mr. MacArthur is a gifted speaker, and correct on most of what he teaches from the Bible. In fact, I greatly enjoy listening to Pastor MacArthur at times, as he expounds on the Scriptures; but unfortunately, he goes horribly astray when it comes to God's plan of salvation for mankind, adding works to the grace of God, perverting THE GOSPEL.

Here is some damnable heresy that Pastor John MacArthur teaches to millions of people. Any time someone comes along preaching that salvation will “cost” you something, you know that minister was inspired by demons...

“Don’t believe anyone who says it’s easy to become a Christian. Salvation for sinners cost God His own Son; it cost God’s Son His life, and it’ll cost you the same thing...” [emphasis added]

SOURCE: Dr. John MacArthur, Grace To You, an updated quote from his book 'Hard To Believe', page 93

Folks, that is not “the simplicity that is in Christ” (2nd Corinthians 11:3b). There is no “cost” to a sinner coming to Jesus Christ to receive God's gift of forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Eternal life is a gift from God, which we RECEIVE by faith in the the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. There is no other way of salvation (Acts 4:10-12).

Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) saw right thru Dr. MacArthur (for the devil that he is) for teaching “ANOTHER GOSPEL”...

“Who is John MacArthur? He is the one man in America doing more than anybody to destroy soul-winning churches!” —Dr. Jack Hyles (a needful quote from the MP3 sermon, "I Sojourn In Mesech")

Case in point is the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, who have no scheduled soulwinning time. I never once heard the word “soulwinning” mentioned (except by myself) for the entire year that I attended Harvest in 2014. I've lived in Harvestville for the past 6 years (most of my neighbours go to Harvest), and not one time have I ever seen anybody knocking on doors except Jehovah's Witnesses! Despite my sincere humble pleas to be a part of their church family since 2017, I have been shunned, ostracized and mistreated since 2014. Harvest Baptist Church is a sad joke for a church—a mere community social club, a place for old rich snobs to retire and die, a place for religious entertainment, a place of grudge holding and self-righteous hypocrisy, where John MacArthur is promoted and dozens of Satan's counterfeit Bible revisions are used—WHAT A DAMNED RELIGIOUS CULT!!!

Bible “repentance” (metanoia) is changing one's mind from WRONG THINKING to believing THE GOSPEL. The Man who believes on Christ has repented! If turning away from sinful ways is what repentance means (which it doesn't), then salvation cannot be a free gift anymore, because you have to DO SOMETHING to obtain it! And if you have to turn away from sins to prove that you are saved, then this cannot be a free gift either, because you have to DO SOMETHING to keep it.

As an illustration: If I (as a guitar manufacturer) give you (as a professional musician) a free pedal steel guitar, with the obligation that you must perform publicly playing only that guitar for at least one year (to promote my business), then that CANNOT be a free gift (although you may feel like it is). Likewise, if God were to give us salvation as a gift, but then require us to live a certain way (for ANY reason), then it simply couldn't be a gift. Salvation is NOT a contract! In a contract there are obligations required from both parties involved. Eternal life is a gift, that you simply receive by faith in Jesus Christ (Galatians 3:26), and then it is yours without obligation or debt to repay. A gift is a gift!

The Ugly Truth About Harvest Baptist Church On Guam

You know, what Harvest Baptist Church on Guam has done to me reminds me of an eerie episode of The Twilight Zone. A man had planned ahead, by building a nuclear survival shelter under his home. He had told all his neighbours about it, but they all mocked and laughed at him for years. But then one evening on the news, it was reported that Russia was about to launch a massive nuclear strike against the United States! The man took his wife and children and locked themselves into the underground bunker shelter. His neighbours came by the droves, begging to be let in. When the man kindly explained that there was only enough room and supplies for his own family, his neighbours became threatening and violent. They started trying to find ways to break in. They brought power tools, and made all kinds of threats, terrorizing the poor man and his family. At the end of The Twilight Zone episode, right about when his neighbours had found a way to murder the man and his family if they didn't cooperate, the news announced that the threat had been false, and all was back to normal. The man's neighbour's tried to go back to THE WAY IT WAS, acting normal, but there was no way that family could ever look at their neighbours the same again!

That is how I feel with the horrible way Harvest Baptist Church has abused and mistreated me all these long years since 2014. Their ungodly pastors just threw me under the bus, like I wasn't a person anymore. They knew exactly where I lived, and my hurting situation, being all alone in life. One of their reprobate assistant Pastors, Jared, even mocked me, making fun of me for being alone. He said was sarcasm: “How's your belief's working out for your social life?” I went home and cried. That little man is a cold-hearted bastard with no business being in any ministry. These ungodly pastors at Harvest see no problem using two dozen different Bible versions in church. They see no harm in Calvinism, otherwise they wouldn't promote Satanic preachers like Pastor MacArthur (the modern godfather of Lordship Salvation). Thank God Jared quit and left Guam. Sadly, he's ruining lives elsewhere now! I am a good judge of character, and I know a selfish person when I meet one! Harvest is full of selfish people, especially among their pastors and staff. It's the Richy Rich club! Harvest loves their trips to Israel. I wish they'd stay there and not come back, and do the island a favor!

I have said oftentimes that I would make things up to Harvest if they ever invited me back, and simply gave me a second chance; but they have ignored me, playing stupid games, and I have no patience for games, nor the ability to read their minds. All I know is that NONE of my Harvest neighbours will have anything to do with me. They just selfishly go about their lives, as if I don't exist, knowing that I have no church to attend, and they are okay with that. So what does that say about all of them at Harvest? It says they are wicked people, who parasite off of Christianity for a paycheck, and don't give a damn about THE TRUTH, nor do they give a damn about hurting people like me, who have reached out to them numerous times for their love, help and friendship. There is no love at Harvest!!!

Going back to my illustration of the man with the underground nuclear shelter, if Harvest ever did invite me back, I think it just wouldn't be the same, after they have shunned, ignored, ostracized and avoided me AS A GROUP. They have revealed their true colors as a cult. Still, I figure if they could ever let go of their hate, I would be glad to make peace with them. I really think they like it this way, sadly. It was the darndest thing last year. I mean, one week I have A GROUP of my Harvest neighbours all waving at me. I was so happy. I don't know what the hell they were doing. I waved back as earnestly as I could to let them know I AM HERE AND NOT UPSET AT YOU! I waited for an invitation to church, but none ever came, so I quickly got frustrated. Next thing I know, AS A GROUP they totally reject me again—they won't even look at me, and they pretend like I am not a human being. Well fuddrucker them! That's Greek for a$$holes!

I am praying about moving, possibly to Pensacola, Florida or somewhere in Texas. It is not easy for me because of my neck pain. I am also considering taking a trip to Asia to search for a wife, which may be easier for me to do. I am tired of being alone. And once I leave Guam, God willing, Harvest can go to Hell, because I'll never remove anything from the internet I've written about them, to warn others. They could meet in front of my place as a group, telling me how sorry they are, but once I am moving out, I would tell them to go to Hell! Actually, I wouldn't even give them the time of day, because they are ungodly people who love heresy, love money and don't care about other people, which they have proven in their mistreatment of me since 2014. The Bob Jones University crowd are of the Devil!!!

Pastor Jack Hyles is right that American women only want a man to use as a tool to get a house, money and children, but they don't want A MAN. They are spoiled brats! Even worse, many young women nowadays are pursuing careers and don't want to get married. And they talk about MGTOW (men going their own way). As far as I can tell, American women are GOING THEIR OWN WAY, and men (like me) cannot find a wife! In the old days, women desired and searched for a man to marry, but in today's ungodly spoiled American culture, women have been brainwashed by feminist indoctrination (and that 100% includes Christian women) to snub and treat men like garbage. I cannot tell you how many men have said that very thing to me—that American women treat men like garbage!

It disturbs me when I see cult behavior in a church. When my neighbours synchronize for or against me, on cue from their pastors and staff, that is a Satanic cult. Harvest Baptist Church on Guam are just as guilty as dictator Kim Jong-un in North Korea, where people are not allowed to know the truth, because everything is censored. For telling THE TRUTH that the modern Alexandrian based Bible revisions are corrupt, I have been banned and blackballed by Harvest Baptist Church since 2014. I'll never shut up! I'm not the bad guy, Kim Jong-un and Harvest Baptist Church are, for defending their errors and trying to keep people IN THE DARK! Harvest's pastors and staff have much blood on their hands!

Also, Harvest Baptist Church promotes apostate Moody Radio and heretic Dr. John MacArthur—who all teach the Satanic lies of Calvinism! Folks, I am absolutely alarmed and concerned about all this. Calvinism is no different than Roman Catholicism! It adds works to the Gospel of free grace. Calvinism teaches the same false repentance (i.e., turning away from sins to be saved) as do Mormons, Seventh-day Adventists and Jehovah's Witnesses! That is why (as he admits in this sermon), one of Pastor John MacArthur's books teaching Lordship Salvation (Calvinism) is REQUIRED READING at the Mormon 'Brigham Young University.' Heck, I'd like to become a Mormon just to find a wife! My God, when Mormons are promoting John MacArthur's books, you know they are of the Devil! Mormonism is a sex cult!!!

Calvinism is not an acceptable alternative, it is of the Devil. Shame on any independent fundamental Baptist church or organization who bids Godspeed to the Devil's lie of Calvinism!!!

The Simplicity of Salvation Verses Harvest Baptist Church

The “simple” thing about salvation is that all you have to do to receive eternal life is to BELIEVE the Gospel. If you gladly receive the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ crucified on the cross, buried and bodily risen the third day, you are saved! Acts 2:43, “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.” (God will even save you if you grumpily receive the GOOD NEWS!) They were saved by gladly receiving the Good News of Jesus crucified, buried and risen. Then they were water baptized as a pubic profession of their faith. Notice that they were saved first, and then afterwards baptized with water. Salvation is BY FAITH alone. Galatians 3:2, “This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?That is, when a person hears the Gospel preached, and they receive it by faith, placing their trust in that GOOD NEWS, they are saved. Believe the GOOD NEWS my friend and you are eternally saved!!!

Harvest Baptist Church on Guam CANNOT try to hide in this matter, claiming to be accurate on the Gospel, while promoting heretical Calvinists like Moody Bible Institute, Paul Washer, Ray Comfort and Dr. John MacArthur. Harvest also promotes Pastor Stephen Davey, who perverts the Gospel message, teaching Lordship Salvation. God damn Harvest! I didn't say that, God did in Galatians 1:6-9. I am using God damn in its proper context. God's curse is upon anyone who teaches Calvinism (aka, Lordship Salvation), because it is ANOTHER GOSPEL!!! The $64,000 question is: DO YOU CARE??? Well, do you? Very few (and I mean very few) Christians care about the accuracy of THE GOSPEL. The truth matters! It is not okay to have a dozen Bible revisions on your bookshelf to search through to find what God said! God only authored ONE BOOK, and I believe that Book to the the inspired KING JAMES BIBLE!!!

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies...” —2nd Peter 2:1

Calvinism is NOT the Gospel of free grace! Calvinism claims that if you are saved, you WILL live a certain way, and if you don't it proves you were never really saved at all. Such false doctrine places undue pressure on individuals to “turn from their sins,” or else live in fear and uncertainty that they may go to Hell. The big problem is how can you know when you've crossed the line? How much sinning means you were never really saved? Certainly, I do believe that a saved person SHOULD live for Christ. That is what the Epistle of 1st John teaches. The Bible says in 1st John 3:8a, “He that committeth sin is of the devil...” But Calvinists never quote the next verse in 1st John 3:9b, “he cannot sin, because he is born of God.” Since every Christian still sins, obviously this passage means something different than what Calvinists claim. So what does it mean? The apostle John is saying that the Christian believer has TWO NATURES: The sinful nature (the flesh), and the new nature (yielded to the indwelling Holy Spirit). The indwelling Holy Spirit is evidence that we are saved (1st John 3:24). That doesn't mean we'll always CHOOSE to walk in the Spirit. As we see in 1st Corinthians 3:14-15 (our text passage), not every born-again believer CHOOSES to serve Jesus Christ! This man died, having no rewards whatsoever!

I am alarmed at the flood of Calvinism in our churches today. I thank God for doctrinally sound preachers of yesteryear, like Pastor Harry A. Ironside (1876-1951), who wrote the tract: “What Is The Gospel?” Also, please read Dr. Ironside's helpful tract: “Another Gospel.” It is sad that Calvinists have usurped control over Moody Church today, who've turned apostate, turning away from the truth of a free grace Gospel that was once preached by Pastor Harry Ironside. Christians in today's independent fundamental Baptist churches ought to be as alarmed about the virus of Calvinism, as they are about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The Coronavirus (which has a 2% mortality rate) may kill your body, but Calvinism (which has a 100% mortality rate) will kill your body and soul in a burning Hell forever. I am sick and tired of the indifference, complacency and tolerance of Calvinism in today's apostate Baptist churches. What saith the Scripture? 2nd John 2:10-11, “If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”


“Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do!”
—Pastor Jack Hyles, a quote from the MP3 sermon titled: God's Reversal Of Psalm 51

1st Corinthians 16:24, “My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.”

Confession Is Never A Requirement For Salvation

John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

“As a blind man has no idea of colors, so we have no idea of the manner by
which the all-wise God perceives and understands all things.”
