When A Church Becomes A Religious Cult
by David J. Stewart | December 2019
1st John 3:18, “My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.”
The Holy Bible commands us not to merely love in word (talking about it), but in DEED and IN TRUTH! I have shown God's love toward the Bob Jones crowd on Guam (i.e., Harvest Baptist Church) by SPEAKING THE TRUTH! Sadly, they have rejected me along with THE TRUTH. Like the apostle Paul, they have counted me their enemy. Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” The reason why our country is going to Hell, is because today's corrupt churches are all doing their own thing, instead of upholding THE TRUTH. Pastor Jeff Owens rightly said: “AMERICA'S PULPITS HAVE BECOME WEAK!” (a quote from the sermon titled: “UNLOVED PREACHERS”).
By God's grace, in 2020 I intend to continue preaching hard against the apostate Bob Jones crowd. They behave as a cult on Guam! I was really happy last month for a short time, because a few of my Harvest neighbours started waving at me, and I thought perhaps things would finally change, and I prayed that they would invite me back to attend church; but nobody invited me, so I got frustrated and preached the same as I have done for the past 5 years online, and like puppets they all stopped waving in unison. THAT IS WHAT A CULT DOES! I am torn between my love for THE TRUTH, and my earnest desire to be part of a church family. No believer should have to make such a choice! That is truly pathetic. I am talking about an independent Baptist church! Yes, I am talking about Harvest Baptist Church Cult on Guam. No doubt they would disagree that they are a cult, but from where I sit, I feel exactly like that picture above. That is how they appear to me, when they all act in unison to alienate me. I think what they are doing is horrible. If you don't like my website preaching, then 'Get the Hell out of my church!' (I stole that classic line from Pastor Steven Anderson!)
“There's two types of people in this world—those who love the truth, and those who don't!” —Pastor Steven Anderson; “The Sorcery of Television,” hot preaching from July of 2015
“When may a revival be expected? When the wickedness of the wicked grieves and distresses the Christian.” —Billy Sunday
“You show me the loving, charitable, giving, soulwinning church, I'll show you the hell,
fire and damnation fire-breathing preacher; it's true!” —Pastor Steven Anderson; “The Sorcery of Television,” hot preaching from July of 2015
My Harvest neighbours clearly don't want to be my friends (or Jesus' friend either - Matthew 25:40, 45), but I have been a friend to them. I am shunned, ignored and despised by Harvest's people and staff. They gang-up on me in groups. One day the group waves hello, but then the next day they totally ignore me. I am just a tired man, in neck pain all the time, a humble broken sinner, a nice guy, who simply has pleaded for permission to attend church, but no one at Harvest Baptist Church cares about me. NO ONE!!! I honestly wonder if there's anything even worth going back to at Harvest?
Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
Mind-Controlled Church Members
If you offend key members, the whole church is against you. That is a cult! The Bible teaches that even the smallest member of Christ's Body matters. Paul wrote much about this, to prevent “schisms” in the Body of Christ. The apostle Paul didn't like that they had formed cliques in the Church at Corinth, and disregarded the seemingly lesser members. ...
1st Corinthians 12:22, “Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.”
I am part of the Body of Christ, but Harvest rejects, refuses, ostracizes and gives me the silent treatment, which is a form of ABUSE. My hope and prayer is that God will give them the SILENT TREATMENT when they all get to Heaven! Let them see what it feels like to be ignored, while your neighbours from the church (that ousted you), have parties and enjoy good times, and you are shunned away like Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer.
I sadly realized that the young lady I have feelings for doesn't care about me. She only smiled and waved hello because someone told her to do it. In the cult at Harvest Baptist Church, the moment that you offend the wrong person, the whole church turns against you. All I did was TELL THE TRUTH that the modern Bible versions are corrupted by Satan, and for that I was compelled to leave Harvest, and shunned afterwards. In 2017 I was berated and told I couldn't come back to attend church services, even though I literally begged their pastors to allow me to return. No one from the church has ever even tried to reach out to me, they know where I live, but they are not right with God and don't care.
I am sad that what I mistook as perhaps a sincere heart of love, turned out to be CULT BEHAVIOR! The woman who smiled and waved at me last month, didn't like me at all, she was leading me on per instructions from her handlers. A handful of my Harvest neighbours all waved at me at the same time, during my evening walk, but over a week later it turned into contempt from them. That was the end of the friendliness from Harvest. That depressed me. That's a cruel thing to do to someone at Christmas time, especially someone who is suffering in pain with a disability. Why not rather just push me down a flight of stairs in a wheelchair, it would have been less painful. My eyes look to the Lord!
THIS IS MY LIFE!
I AM A VOICE! (Dr. Jack Hyles; we don't need talent, dynamics or pretty boys: WE NEED VOICES!).
I was hoping to move in January, but I haven't heard from the lady with the cheaper rental apartment yet, so it looks like I'm staying for the foreseeable future, God willing. My neighbours from Harvest Baptist Church are stuck with my lovable presence in their midst. Kindly, I'm going to be a part of their church family one way or the other, so they might as well get used to my online writings. All I have ever wanted is to love, and hopefully be loved, by my fellow Christian brothers and sisters. My body hurts physically in so much pain lately, I just want to go to Heaven.
I am convinced that the dear folks at Harvest simply don't know how to love. Albeit, I love them with God's unconditional love. I always smile and wave at them. The folks at Harvest evidently haven't been through the depths of God's grace and suffering that I have, so they cannot understand a guy like me. Luke 7:47, “Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.” The apostle Paul 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.” I love everybody! I am not afraid to love someone who is not a member of my group. I have faithfully shown nothing but Christ's love toward a cold-hearted immature carnal Baptist church. Psalm 84:2, “My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.”
I am not saying Harvest Baptist Church is a cult, I am saying I FEEL LIKE they are a cult! They behave like a cult, following one another instead of standing alone, as the individuals whom God made them to be. 1st Kings 18:22, “Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal's prophets are four hundred and fifty men.” We know from the bigger picture in Scripture that God had 7,000 other Christians who had not bowed their knee unto Baal. I really like Elijah, because he was an individual, standing by himself! Elijah didn't know that there were 7,000 others who were also faithful! As far as Elijah knew, he was the last man standing, but HE STOOD ALONE!!! Elijah didn't quit and throw in the towel because everyone else had quit. The ole fella WRESTLED (FOUGHT), WITHSTOOD and STOOD!!! I like that! I am just an Elijah. I know there are 7,000 other Christians today who are still rock-rib fighting fundamentalist Christians in America, and I am not alone in the big picture; but where I live, in my neighbourhood, in my world, in my time, I AM ALL ALONE!!! Humbly and kindly, I am the Elijah and Harvest Baptist Church are as the 450 prophets of Baal. They are laboring against THE TRUTH! These modern Bible revisions are of the Devil, confusing everybody! John MacArthur, Ravi Zacharias and Ravi Comfort are of the Devil. They all preach ANOTHER gospel of faith plus human effort!
Kindly, with love, I wish the professed Christian people from the local apostate Harvest Baptist Baptist church on Guam (who shun me away for telling the truth), could understanding my neck pain, so perhaps they would be more compassionate; but no, I'm the bad guy in their sight for being honest! Where dwelleth the love of God in Christians today? 1st John 3:17, “But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?” My heart is broken. My soul is tired. Only my faith in God sustains me. 'Tis grace hath brought me thus far, and grace will lead me home! Thank God for my brother and sister, Oxycontin and Percocet, at least they are always there for me in my suffering, unlike my professed Christian brothers and sisters from Bob Jones. A hurting dog barks!
