Why Evangelist Ravi Zacharias Is So Dangerous
by David J. Stewart | December 2019
2nd John 1:9-11, “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 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.”
The Lord Jesus Christ knows that I have nothing personal against Ravi Zacharias. Ravi says a lot of interesting and helpful things. He seems like a nice man. I believe that he is sincere in his preaching, because I saw literal tears in his eyes while speaking to 7,000 Mormons in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2014. Ravi makes the following truthful quote in the sermon...
“When you want to introduce a lie, you have to silence the voices of truth.” —Evangelist Ravi Zacharias, a quote from the sermon: Ravi Zacharias at the Mormon Tabernacle
That is exactly why Harvest Baptist Church (HBC) on Guam in 2014, tried to SHUT ME UP about the evils of the modern Alexandrian Bible versions, because as Ravi Zacharias said: WHEN YOU WANT TO INTRODUCE A LIE, YOU HAVE TO SILENCE THE VOICES OF TRUTH!!! I was the VOICE of truth to their pastors, but they decided to silence me quickly, lest they be exposed as FALSE PROPHETS! Regarding the falsehood of the modern Bible versions, Dr. Jack Hyles is the VOICE of truth! Pastor Al Lacy is the VOICE of truth! Pastor Ralph “Yankee” Arnold is the VOICE of truth! I AM A VOICE! (by Dr. Jack Hyles; We don't need talent, dynamics or pretty boys: WE NEED VOICES!).
By the way, kindly, I hope Harvest likes my Bible-preaching against Y'all on the internet, because I plan to leave it all there for the next 30 years, God willing! All I wanted was to humbly be part of your church family. You have to forgive me if I get frustrated when Y'all wave at me a couple times, but there is no invite to church. Then Y'all turn your backs on me, literally. Real great testimony, huh, about as good as mine. It is shameful how Harvest gangs up on me when I offend them; but as I have learned, one man plus God equals a majority! I have little patience for games. Trying to figure out what someone else is thinking is frustrating. I sincerely desire to make peace with my brothers and sisters in Christ, but perhaps I am alone in my feelings. I am just going to keep trusting THE LORD. This is not about me and Harvest Baptist Church being personally at odds, it is over THE TRUTH!!! ...
“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”
In my heart, respectfully, since the pastors of Harvest have always been the problem, I feel like they will never allow me to come back to church, and that compels me to preach against them further without apology. I am bold because as sure as I know that I am a born-again Christian, I know the things I preach against Harvest Baptist Church are 100% THE TRUTH. I have shown nothing but love toward my HBC neighbours, and will continue to do so, always, because I cannot live without God's love for all humanity. I poured my heart out recently, I don't know what else I could have done to make things right. I offered to remove everything about Harvest from the internet, as a gesture of love and appreciation for a second chance to have a church family. I am in bodily pain all the time from stenosis and radiculitis, physically tired from my pain medications, lonely, and I don't have patience like I should; I am truly sorry my friends. I am what I am, by God's grace. Albeit, I will wrestle (fight), withstand and stand (Ephesians 6:12-18) until my last dying breath for THE TRUTH. = -)
I humbly like what Pastor Jack Hyles said...
“If you want a church like this, we invite you to join our church, but I want to warn you—We can't stand close inspection, just like you can't—but if you as a sinner will come and join the rest of us sinners, we'll all try to be better people together!” —Dr. Jack Hyles, a quote from the great sermon, “ I Find No Fault In This Man!”
I really like that! I am not a perfect man, and I certainly am not looking for a perfect church, nor hopefully an imperfect companion as a wife. When I die and go to Heaven, I am going to stand way in the back in humility, because I don't feel worthy of God's love, salvation and blessings; but thanks be to God for God's imputed righteousness through faith in Jesus Christ, which solely makes us worthy! “WORTHY IS THE LAMB” (Revelation 5:12b)!!!
Oh, praise the Lord for those “Wonderful Words Of Life!,” which is “THE GOSPEL”!!!
A false prophet tells LIES! A false prophet sanctions, promotes and sells multiple Bible “versions” to confuse church members (Acts 19:32). This Bible, that Bible, take your pick, they're all good, right? I tell you, their heads are stuck so far up where the sun don't shine, that a search party couldn't find them! Perhaps you say: “You shouldn't say things like that!” Well then when you build a website ministry, don't say it!!! This is my website pulpit and I'll preach what God tells me to preach, like it or lump it!
“It's time that God's people met with God!” —Dr. Jack Hyles; a quote from, “You Must Go Through Arabia.”
Why is Ravi Zacharias So Dangerous?
Ravi Zacharias is a dangerous false prophet because of WHAT HE DOESN'T SAY!!!
In the aforementioned sermon by Ravi to 7,000 hellbound Mormons, he teaches them that there can be no worship until their is first righteousness, and there can be no righteousness without first having redemption! Amen! That is great stuff! That is 100% doctrinally sound teaching. Unfortunately, that is also exactly what Mormons believe and teach...
What is the Atonement?
As used in the scriptures, to atone is to suffer the penalty for sins, thereby removing the effects of sin from the repentant sinner and allowing him or her to be reconciled to God. Jesus Christ was the only one capable of carrying out the Atonement for all mankind. Because of His Atonement, all people will be resurrected, and those who obey His gospel will receive the gift of eternal life with God. [emphasis added]
Wow! Hey, Mormons sound like they are saved, right? Ecumenical false prophets like Ravi Zacharias only preach what they know AGREES with the audience they are speaking to, but they WON'T dare rub the cat's fur the wrong way, lest they get scratched! MEOOW!!! By the way, every hellbound Roman Catholic and Seventh-Day Adventist would fully agree with Ravi's teaching that redemption must precede righteousness. Yes, the Satanic cults all believe some truth! And that ladies and gentleman, is why billions of people today are blinded by the Devil, blinded by a false hope in a damnable religion that cannot produce the new birth through faith ALONE in Jesus Christ. The Devil's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again!!!
Now here is a different Mormon website, that plainly shows that they add works to faith to get to Heaven. This is Mormonism's true colors...
...Latter-day Saint teachings state that where we go after this life depends primarily upon the degree to which we accept and follow Jesus Christ, as well as on the desires of our hearts and how we translate those desires into works. In addition, our destination after this life depends on whether we participate in the essential rites (such as baptism) that aid us in the process of repentance, progression and sanctification. [emphasis added]
Good night in the morning!!! Did you read those heretical statements! These quotes that I just gave you are both from Mormon ministry websites. The first website seems to superficially teach salvation by grace through faith; but the second Mormon website blatantly teaches damnable works salvation (even using the word “WORKS”). That is what Mormons (aka, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) believe! Notice that Mormons condition going Heaven upon the “DEGREE” of your following Jesus Christ (Judas followed Christ!). Sadly, that sounds like the crap which the Salvation Army teaches. The Salvation Army calls salvation “a state”; teaching that you can lose that state by failure to practice “continued obedient faith in Christ.” They are LIARS!!! That is works for salvation. Likewise, Mormons are LIARS to teach that salvation requires participation of Mormon temple “essential rites (such as baptism).” Folks, that is the Devil talking!!! Mormons are of the Devil. The Salvation Army's plan of salvation is of the Devil. Calvinism is of the Devil. I am not trying to be a trouble-maker, I am PREACHING THE TRUTH OF THE WORD!!!
Unless the Lord shows me different, I'll NEVER SHUT UP about the apostasy of the Bob Jones University crowd (or anybody else that promotes corruptible seed). I love something that Pastor Bob Gray Sr. said:
“The best thing in the world to do is stay behind truth. I don't care how much it hurts. I don't care how much pain it is. Or how much the kids don't like it, or anybody don't like it—YOU STAY BEHIND TRUTH!!! Why? Cause it's right! And it'll protect you! And if the leader goes down, the followers are gonna follow...” —Dr. Bob Gray Sr., a quote from the sermon, Truth Vs. Change.
I'm fully convinced that God hates Christmas, because it has become so phony, commercialized and lacking of meaning. Harvest Baptist Church's annual outdoor impressive Christmas lights display cannot substitute for their church's woeful lack of God's love. All I have done is PREACH THE TRUTH! ...
want to introduce a lie, you have to silence the voices of truth.”
—Evangelist Ravi Zacharias, a truthful quote from the sermon: Ravi Zacharias at the Mormon Tabernacle
Ravi Zacharias is a dangerous false prophet because of WHAT HE DOESN'T SAY!!!
If I had an opportunity to preach to 7,000 Mormons, I'd rip their faces off, and they'd want to stone me like deacon Stephen (Acts chapters 6-7). I would definitely preach THE GOSPEL to them, but I would also tear into their counterfeit religion which requires following Christ, doing good works, and participating of rituals to be saved. You CANNOT preach 'THE GOSPEL' without exposing works that corrupt the “SIMPLICITY THAT IS IN CHRIST” (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4). I would expose the Satanic lie that says water baptism is required for salvation! Acts 15:1, “And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved.” The apostle Peter made very clear in Acts 15:24 that these heretical teachings were NOT the Gospel. The true Gospel of free grace is “WITHOUT WORKS” (Romans 4:5).
You don't get water baptized to get to Heaven, nor is it allowed! If you got water baptized “JUST IN CASE,” then you are GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL when you die, because the new birth only comes by FAITH ALONE in Jesus Christ!!! John 1:12-13, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” You get saved by BELIEVING upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, relying upon His death on the cross, burial and bodily resurrection the third day as full-payment for your sins. No Mormon rites are necessary nor allowed. No works of self-righteousness are permitted.
Kindly, the apostate ecumenical Bob Jones' crowd today who promote corruptible seed, can kiss me where the sun don't shine and write a love story! I don't care anymore what they think, I only care about THE TRUTH!!! Acts 7:54, “When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.” Boy, I never thought telling THE TRUTH could cause so much commotion! Everywhere that the early Christians preached in the book of Acts, either REVIVAL or RIOT broke out!!! Humbly, I sure feel like the apostle Paul in Galatians 4:6, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” Yes, that is exactly right.
Ravi Zacharias coddles unsaved Mormons, Roman Catholics and other false religions. The world is going to Hell without the new birth, but Ravi's sermonettes are so lame and ambiguous, that a man can walk away feeling comfortable in his false hope. Literally, those 7,000 unsaved Mormons gave Ravi a standing ovation when he was done preaching! The Jews murdered Stephen! The church at Galatia viewed the apostle Paul as their enemy! The Jews tried to murder Jesus in John 10:33, “The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.” Well, Jesus is God! He was telling THE TRUTH!!! And so am I; to God be the praise and glory!

Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.

better to get saved; he gets saved to get better.”

—SOURCE: Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001), a quote from the needful and precious MP3 sermon titled: “Where Were You In The Battle?”
Religion is man trying to reach God through human effort, but Christianity is God trying to reach man by the sacrifice of His only begotten Son on the cross.
“You don't have to fall
apart just because the world falls apart!”
—an excellent quote by Pastor Ralph “Yankee” Arnold from his awesome MP3 sermon called, “THE CALL TO SUFFER.”
It is tragic, but true, that the true New Testament church is being driven underground in America. Faithful believers like me, who expose the Alexandrian counterfeit Bible versions, and expose false prophets like Dr. John MacArthur, and refute the false gospel of Lordship Salvation, are forced out of the churches as troublemakers. It is crazy!!! Churches are so backslidden and apostate, that they don't even realize a person who contends for the faith. It's bizarre, but Christianity is being driven underground. On the face of things in Europe and the United States, they look like Christian nations, there are plenty of churches, but when one digs deeper, when one really IS a Christian, and wishes to make a stand for the Christian faith, one quickly finds apostasy and rejection.
Brother Tom Stegall's book, Must Faith Endure:
However, many today misunderstand this marvelous truth and say in effect, “Yes, Christ can save you, but your faith must keep holding on to Christ in order for you to reach heaven.” According to this approach, Christ really doesn't save a person; they save themselves. With this approach, a person is not really saved by faith in Christ, but ultimately by faith in their faith, as they think it is their “faithfulness” to Christ which will ultimately bring them eternal life. The great Bible teacher of the past, Harry Ironside, addressed this very problem as he answered the objection: “But must I not hold on to the end if I would be saved at last?”
The Incompatibility Of False Teaching On Repentance With The Gospel Of Grace
don't save you! Calling on the Lord don't save you! You know what saves you?
what Christ done for you on the cross!” —Pastor Danny Castle, a quote from the needful MP3 sermon, “WHY THERE'S A HELL.”
There's two days you should never worry about—yesterday and tomorrow! You can't change them. Fight today's battles today! Worry is the end of faith and faith is the end of worry! The second I start trusting the Lord, I quit worrying; and the second I start worrying, I quit trusting the Lord. Worry is not trusting God. I just feel like, some of you may be just worrying yourself sick, over stuff that you can't change it a bit. You know what you need to do—put it into God's hands! Don't be guilty of the sin that most Christians commit. (awesome quotes from Pastor Danny Castle's helpful sermon titled, “The Sin That Most Christians Commit.”
“You say, 'Preacher are you worried about the depression?' No, I'm worried about the prosperity!” —Dr. Jack Hyles; a quote from the classic MP3 sermon, “You Must Go Through Arabia.”
