Pastors Who Spit On The Lord Jesus Christ
By David J. Stewart | February 2015 | Updated December 2020
Matthew 15:8-9, “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”
I had attended the local shameful Harvest Baptist Church on Guam for a year in 2014. What a nightmare the church turned out to be! Harvest's pastors are all Bob Jones University graduates, who sadly don't care about truth or people. I came into their church in 2013 with truth, love and a sincere heart; but for my love they counted me their enemy, and truth was rejected, and they proved by their hurtful actions that they are a bunch of religious phonies. Psalms 109:4-5, “For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer. And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.” Our churches are becoming so disgustingly apostate that people are leaving the churches to find God.
Many corrupt pastors (e.g., Marty Herron, John MacArthur and Steve Pettit) are now teaching a false plan of Lordship Salvation, avoiding the subject of Hell, praising heretic John MacArthur, using multiple Bible versions, et cetera. One apostate associate pastor at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam admitted to me that their members use at least TWO DOZEN different Bible versions on any given Sunday. That is confusion and tragic. America's churches today are pathetic! Money, money, money! That is all we hear from the churches today... we need more money! It never ends. Yet, these same disgusting highlife pastors nearly all take frequent trips to Israel, Hawaii and around the world, enjoying the goof life at the expense of the working man. If a church pays their pastor TWICE what the average American earns in a year, you need to find a Christlike church instead! The Bible says the greatest among us shall be our servant. Pastors who get paid double and triple what the common man earns in a year are not servants, they are parasites. Bible college executives are the worst! Dr. Marty Herron and Dr. Steve Pettit both get paid more than quadruple what the common man earns! When did Christianity become a business?
I feel like Ezekiel, whom the Spirit of the Lord carried in a vision from Babylon to Jerusalem, so that Ezekiel could see the wicked apostasy of the temple priests, who were worshipping the sun and had been corrupted by Satan. After witnessing firsthand the apostasy in today's churches, I now have a much better picture of why God's blessing are departing from America. The Devil is working round-the-clock to steal, kill and destroy our churches, families and nation, while the average pastor is at ease on Zion. The aforementioned Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is at ease in Zion. What does it mean to be, “at ease in Zion?” ...
In the eighth century before Christ, the prophet Amos was preaching to the wealthy elite of ancient Israel—to people of property, to people of reputation, to people of substance, to people of power. Amos preached during a time of unprecedented prosperity in Israel. The book of Amos speaks of beds of ivory, fine wines, couches, luxurious ointments, vacation homes, summer palaces, et cetera. The elite of Israel were secure (so they thought) in their comforts and prosperity, thinking they must be pleasing in God's eyes. They looked at their business associates. They looked at their friends. They looked at their social acquaintances. They were all wealthy. They were all comfortable. They were all, as Amos 6:1 says, “at ease in Zion.”
Sadly, this is where our big churches are at today, at ease in Zion, spoiled and complacent. They associate God's blessings with the size of their attendance and how many friends they have. John 12:43, “For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.” I would rather tell the truth and have God as my only friend, than to kowtow and dip-my-sails in compromise, going along to get along to please men.
Listen to what Evangelist Billy Sunday rightly said a century ago . . .
“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.”

There's a big difference between an imperfect church, verses a church that is complacent in their lukewarmness and doesn't want to be perfect. The crowd is always wrong, and that includes apostate mainstream evangelicalism! Everybody in evangelical circles today are teaching a corrupted plan of Lordship Salvation, because all the modern Bible versions have changed the meaning of repentance from a change of mind to a change of life.
God Elevates His Word Above His Name, But Pastors Shirk it Off As Unimportant
Satan has infiltrated the churches through the Bible-corrupting movement. Most pastors refuse to listen to the truth, and are spitting on the Lord Jesus Christ. They don't want to go against their peers in the ministry. They don't want to become controversial. They don't want to be labeled as a nut for saying that the King James Bible is the only good Bible today.
The Holy Bible teaches that God magnifies His Word above His name . . .
Psalms 138:2, “I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.”
It sounds like the Bible is really important to God. That's because it is! Do you think the Lord takes it lightly when occultists change the Holy Bible and remove important theological terms? See for yourself how wicked these people are, who have changed the Word of God into a lie in the modern Bible versions.
The new Bibles all teach Lordship Salvation, which has infected many of the churches. You must understand that adding even the slightest bit of human effort to God's plan of salvation cannot produce the new birth, because it is not the power of the Gospel. Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” Notice that we are saved through the power of the Gospel, simply by BELIEVING!!! To say that a sinner must forsake evil ways, which is what Hebrews 6:1 has been PERverted to say in the Easy-To-Read Version, is religion. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again.
If this all seems like a trifle matter to you, you need to get your heart right with God. According to Psalms 138:2 the Lord magnifies His Word above His very own name, above the name of Jesus, the greatest name there is (Philippians 2:9-10). God's Words are VERY pure...
Psalms 119:140, “Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.”
God's Words are very pure. Anybody who has honestly compared the various modern Bible versions against the King James Bible fully understands that there's not a dime's difference between all the new versions. ONLY the trustworthy King James Bible stands apart. Examine all the corruptions in the new Bible versions and you will discover that they're all the same passages. Nearly all of the new versions remove “Lucifer” from Isaiah 14:12. They remove “begotten” from John 3:16. They completely remove the entire verse of Acts 8:37. They all butcher Psalms 12:6-7 to say that God preserves people instead of His pure words. They all replace “Easter” with “Passover” in Acts 12:4, which is wrong. They all corrupt repentance from “a change of mind” to mean “a change of life.” The new Bibles are all straight from the pits of Hell beneath. Woe unto the foolish pastors who lead their flocks astray into confusion.
Bless God, somebody needs to get mad at the Devil. Somebody needs to take a stand for God. I'm so sick of dead churches and lifeless Bible colleges. Somebody say, “Amen!” Everybody is afraid to take a stand these days, afraid they might offend someone. OFFEND THEM! God wants us to SPEAK UP, but Satan wants us to SHUT UP! Beware of false shepherds who teach a false plan of salvation of partial faith in Christ + human effort.
God Saved Us to DO GOOD, Not to BE GOOD
What are you doing for God besides filling 18" of pew with your rear-end, dropping a few dollars into an offering plate and singing, “Holy, Holy, Holy” each week? When I went to Hyles-Anderson College (HAC), the big focus was being involved in a ministry. Brother Hyles firmly believed in staying busy for God. I laboured for the Lord in the Bus Ministry all during the time I attended HAC college. We didn't gather around the Word while the world is going to Hell. We trained while serving, preparing while performing!
I was looking at some different Bible colleges this week and found this advertisement for Northland International University. . .
“Each dormitory features carpeting, laundry facilities, wireless internet, computer terminals, vending machines, a student kitchen, and a casual lounge with a television and couches.” [emphasis added]
SOURCE: Dorm Life | Campus Life | Northland International University
Oh boy, golly gee, A CASUAL LOUNGE WITH A TELEVISION AT BIBLE COLLEGE!!! Isn't that just great! When I went to Hyles-Anderson, TELEVISIONS WERE BANNED!!! A casual lounge? Oooh! That's where I want to train to serve God! Not! At HAC we spent our time knocking on doors soulwinning, working bus routes and staying busy trying to save a nation for God. My, oh my, how times have changed! What kind of Bible college promotes that they have a television? I even read about a Baptist Bible college recently that advertises pool tables!!! Unreal!
Do any of these so-called “Bible” colleges know that we are in a spiritual war? You'd think that a Bible college would advertise the different ministries which you can get involved in, but they don't, because they don't have any! Bob Jones University promotes the liberal arts. They're becoming like the Salvation Army, that is, more Army than Salvation. I don't care who loves me or hates me, I LOVE YOU ALL IN THE LORD, and I'm going TO STAND for God as the Bible teaches!
We are living in wicked times, when even Christian leaders and pastors of churches refuse to heed THE TRUTH . . .
2nd Chronicles 36:16, “But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy.”
Bless God, somebody needs to get mad at the Devil! Somebody needs to take a stand for God! Somebody needs to become passionate about the purity of God's Words! If we as Christians do not do it, then prey tell me who will? The bogus line of thought that says Christians should just preach the Gospel and avoid controversial topics, like the Bible issue debate, is of the Devil!
Lordship Salvation: The Devil's Plan of Salvation
I'm going to SPEAK UP for God, while liberal pastors are telling me to SHUT UP! If I had my way, I'd fire most pastors for incompetence as spiritual leaders. Many pastors would make great restaurant managers, but they are in the wrong profession as pastors of churches. I feel sorry for the masses of naive people in today's apostate churches, who are being misled to believe that they cannot go to Heaven unless they forsake sinful living. I heard a pastor errantly tell his church congregation that it's not enough to realize and admit that you're a sinner to get to Heaven; but also, a person must turn away from a sinful life. Folks, that is a satanic plan of damnation, not salvation! That is adding human effort to God's plan of salvation. That is human effort. That places a very heavy burden upon the sinner to change.
The bottom line is that it doesn't matter what I think, nor what you think; but rather, WHAT SAITH THE SCRIPTURE? You cannot show me anywhere in the Holy Bible where God tells anyone to turn away from sin, or to repent of sin to be saved. The Bible plainly teaches repeatedly to simply BELIEVE the Gospel to be saved. John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.” Again we read in 1st Thessalonians 4:14, “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.” See how simple it is to be saved?
The truth is that it is the transforming power of the Holy Spirit which makes a man a new creature in Christ, and then God works in that person's heart as His child concerning changes which need to be made in their life. That's exactly why people living in evil won't come to Christ to be saved (John 3:20). So the problem takes care of itself. You don't have to corrupt the plan of salvation to force people to live right. To do so means no one is getting saved. Our churches are filled with religious people who falsely think they are going to Heaven, because they have never been born-again. Mormons, Seventh-Day Adventists, Church of Christ and Jehovah's Witnesses, ALL teach the same lie that a person must forsake sinful living in order to be saved. Oh, how our churches are being corrupted by the Devil.
You might as well spit on Jesus if you teach that people must forsake their sins to be saved. The whole reason why Christ died for our sins is because we couldn't do anything about them. We ought to live right as Christians because WE ARE SAVED, not to BE SAVED. Brother Lester Roloff says, Jesus saved us so we wouldn't live like that. Never forget that eternal life is a free gift, which means you simply TAKE IT by faith! All of the confusion in our churches concerning what repentance really means is deliberately being caused by the plethora of new corrupted Bibles being introduced into the churches by Satan, the author of confusion.
Worldliness in the Churches
The Young Earth heresy has crept into most of the churches today. So also has the Zionist heresy crept into the churches over the past century. It is a popular belief that Martin Luther was a great man of God, but he taught the heresy of Baptismal Regeneration. Martin Luther is not in Heaven. Mr. Luther was a liar! I saw one guy at a Baptist church with an Old Testament strapped to the side of his head. It looked like a ring box. He said that he wanted God's Word close to his head. My friend, the Bible says to hide God's Words in your heart, not strapped to the side of your head. You need to memorize God's Word, which you very likely won't do if your church uses dozens of Bible versions. Which one should you memorize? All of them? What a bunch of bullcrap in our churches today!!!
A spoke with an associate pastor recently who said he attended a pro-homosexual AWAB meeting. He also went to hear one of his idols, Ravi Zacharias, who receives a standing ovation every time he speaks for sex-perverted Mormons at their Masonic temple in Salt Lake City, Utah. I'm not trying to be unkind, but our churches are a disgrace today.
I know a Baptist church that teaches its youth to perform Walt Disney theme songs. Walt Disney is pro-homosexual. One of the theme songs is from “The Lion King,” a film in which the word “SEX” is written across the sky. Look on YouTube if you don't believe me. Walt Disney is extremely sex perverted. Again, search the internet and you will be totally shocked. Churches ought not promote Walt Disney to their youth. Netflix is also popular in the church. What will they have next at church... boogie-woogie night?
Most of the women, including staff, wear pants in the church. Many of the young girls wear sensual clothing, because the pastors don't preach as they ought against immodesty. I'm tired of hearing how much pastors really care and are concerned about the truth, while they blatantly reject plain evidence that the modern Bible versions are frauds, and the plan of salvation has been tampered with by the Devil. When's the last time you heard any pastor preach against the satanic Roman Catholic religion? Am I the only one? I tell you, the pope is a dope and he has no hope!!! God deliver us from chicken-crap pastors!
I know a Baptist church that has the wrong mindset that their 18 bilingual groups need the Easy-To-Read Version (ERV), but those deceived pastors refuse to listen to warnings that Satan has corrupted the ERV, which totally changes the theology. So all of those 18 bilingual groups are forming their religious beliefs upon the teachings of the ERV. These are not Biblical teachings; but rather, were given to us by occultists using corrupted manuscripts from Alexandria, Egypt. The great sin of Cain was trying to impress God with human effort. Why Did God Kill A Man For Picking Up Sticks On The Sabbath Day? (to show us how much He will not tolerate adding even the slightest bit of human effort to the plan of salvation. The Sabbath Day represented Jesus, in Whom we completely rest for salvation. Today, Jesus is our Sabbath - Hebrews 4:10-11). Is The King James Bible Harder To Read?
May I say, there is no way to rewrite algebra or calculus to make it simpler to understand. What you need is a good teacher. Likewise, the Bible cannot be watered-down to make it easier to understand, not without weakening the theology and corrupting it's meaning. The King James Bible reads at a 5th grade reading level. Nearly all of the Bible can be understood without any assistance. What every Christian needs is a good Bible dictionary. There are many helps to define archaic words.
Shame On Pastors Who Don't Stand for Truth
I am just a VOICE. I am not some self-appointed prophet. I am just an awakened Christian, who has strong opinions and am aggressive about expressing what I fully believe to be 100% TRUTH!!! I'm trying to help others in the Lord. If you believe that you are correct and I am wrong, you had better make sure that you are indeed correct, because judgment day is soon coming for all of us. I know I am right about the simplicity that is in Christ concerning salvation, because my views perfectly align with the King James Bible. The horrible pastors that I have been exposing in this article, are aligned in their beliefs with the modern corrupted Bible versions. Literally, your plan of salvation is going to be determined by which Bible version you accept as of God.
You know, I love pastors, I really do. I was a pastor for many years in Chicago. I still am a pastor in many ways to my web visitors. One man wrote to me and complimented me, saying that I am doing the work of a thousand pastors. That is humbling. My ministry website at Jesus-is-Savior.com received 10,000,000 web visitors last year. If only 1-out-of-1,000 people who visit my ministry receive spiritual help, that's 10,000 people who were helped by this labor of love for the Lord. I have 5 other websites, which I don't keep track of statistics. I let the Lord keep all the stats! It's all about Jesus anyway, not me or you! I do love pastors, but I loath a cowardly pastor who won't stand. I am nauseated by pastors who are lukewarm. And by the way, so is God, which is why those who walk with God are also nauseated. When I tell the Lord I am disgusted, He says, ME TOO!!!
Some pastors like to wear white clothing, to project a feeling of being a righteous man of God. That is a beautiful gesture if he is indeed a righteous man of God. But it is as a broken tooth and a foot out of joint when a pastor dresses in white, and he won't preach as he ought! I wouldn't give you a dime for a pastor who has the look, but doesn't walk the walk. They don't preach on the subject of Hell in the church. I met some Jehovah's Witnesses whose kids are enrolled in the Christian school. Do you know why JW's enroll their kids in a Baptist school? It's because the pulpit is so non-offensive and dead that nobody ever gets offended. Many of the students are Roman Catholic, which is why I never heard the false doctrines of Catholicism refuted from the pulpit. I am not being unkind, but what they really have is a big religious school with a church on the side. Nothing is offensive. It is very dry and shallow. We cannot change people's lives. Only the Holy Spirit of God can do that!
I personally handed hard copies of Michael P. Bowen's book, “I NEVER KNEW YOU,” to numerous pastors, who took offense at the simplicity of the Gospel. Those pastors are self-deceived, refusing to notice the drastic difference in theology between the corrupt plan of salvation of John MacArthur, Billy Graham and Paul Washer verses the free-grace gift of eternal life taught in the Scriptures.
I know what it feels like to become the black-sheep of a church family, because I was the only one doing right when they're all doing wrong. I am defending the purity of God's Word. I am exposing the modern corrupt Bibles. I am defending the simplicity that is in Christ. I am proclaiming the free-grace view of the Gospel. I am exposing the falsehood of Lordship Salvation. I am exposing Martin Luther the heretic, who said water baptism is required to be saved! I am exposing John MacArthur, who says that Jesus' blood is not in Heaven on the mercy seat! I am crying wolf in the sheep's pen. Tragically, many of today's pastors are the wolves in sheep's clothing, more interested in mammon (making a living) than serving God.
I KNOW GOD IS PLEASED WITH ME FOR DOING RIGHT, EVEN WHEN OTHERS ARE DOING WRONG! I can live with that. Over the years I could have dipped-my-sails, shut-up about the corrupted Bible versions, shut-up about the false plan of salvation which the church teaches, going along to get along, and compromised to make friends and be socially accepted. But that's not what being a Christian is all about my friend. I am far from perfect and have made plenty of mistakes in life, but at least I can look in the mirror and respect the imperfect man who is doing his best with God's help TO STAND!!!
Ephesians 6:10-11 and 13, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. ... and having done all, TO STAND.”
In his excellent book, “I NEVER KNEW YOU,” Michael P. Bowen states . . .
You can live for Christ, you can love Christ, you can serve Him with all your might, time, talent and wealth. You can pray to Him, read your Bible, get water-baptized, join a church, witness to people, and do every wonderful work contained within the realm of Christianity, but if you fail to trust Jesus Christ alone for your salvation, He will “dump” you.

All this vital information should be alarming to every born-again Christian, because there are not multiple plans of salvation. On Wikipedia, under “Bible translations,” they state that “There is not one Bible.” Whoever posted that untruth is very wrong! God only wrote One Book! Remember, Jesus Christ is THE WORD OF GOD (John 1:1-3,14; Revelation 19:13). To corrupt the Bible is to attack the Lord Himself. To support the modern corrupt Bible versions is to spit upon the Lord Jesus Christ, especially after you have been warned. A pastor who has been warned, but refuses to listen, becomes weakened in his Christian character. The Bible-issue debate is critically important, because God magnifies His Word above all His name (Psalms 138:2).
All of the different Bible versions teach different theologies, which lead to multiple plans of salvation. God is not the Author of confusion (1st Corinthians 14:33). I am leery of today's shameful pastors who go along with the Bible-corrupting craze.
Evangelist Ray Comfort Teaches Another Gospel | Evangelist Billy Graham's False Gospel
My friend, God wrote ONE BOOK, not hundreds. Don't believe the Devil's lie that we don't have a perfect Bible today. Do you think the God Who spoke the universe into existence is incapable of preserving His very pure Words? In Psalms 12:6-7 in the King James Bible, God promised to preserve His pure Words unto every generation. The PERverted Easy-To-Read Version (ERV) says instead that God preserves helpless people. The reason why they changed that passage of Scripture is obvious, that is, to hide the truth that they are Bible-corrupters, and there really is only ONE BIBLE. I hold that one Book in my hands, the trustworthy KING JAMES BIBLE!!! END
