Ever heard of that old cliche “Calling a spade a spade”?
- Do you believe in adding to the Bible or taking away from it? Read the article at this link.
- Do you believe in salvation through baptism? Read the article at this link.
If you do not believe in such things, then you should read the following article, because my assumption is that you will want to know who is doing both of these things. If you have no problem with adding to GOD’s word or diminishing it or preaching a false gospel of works such as baptismal salvation, then you need to read the above links and also examine those topics first. I realize that the following article is full of “hard sayings” that many will not “hear”, but the Truth must be told for those who will “hear” and “see”. Whether certain men have been our favorite radio pastor or author should make no difference as we read this article if our faith is in Jesus Christ and not in men. Much documentation is included in many of the articles linked at the end of this article. The apostles exposed by name those heretics who were causing division in the early Christian body and they avoided such men.
“Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck: Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.” – 1 Timothy 1:19-20
“That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwells in us. This thou know, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.” – 2 Timothy 1:14-15
“And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.” – 2 Timothy 2:17-18
“I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loves to have the preeminence among them, receives us not. Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he does, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbids them that would, and casts them out of the church.” – 3 John 1:9-10
We have the apostles’ examples as shown above.
We must do the same instead of avoiding criticism and loss of constituents and protecting our financial support for the “sake of the ministry” or we are no better than the Jesuits who pragmatically teach that “the end justifies the means”. Instead of forming our beliefs based upon whether or not we can rally enough people to our cause, we must base our theology upon the Word of GOD alone. If we refuse to name false teachers and avoid them, then we are disobeying Jesus Christ the Final Judge and are allowing a false Gospel to go out unchecked. If we abet those who err from the faith by defending them or by attempting to find some way of making excuses for their errant theology, then we have joined hand in hand with those wolves who would destroy the flock of GOD.
If we promote those who preach a false gospel then we will definitely be judged for this as well. Those who add to or diminish from Scripture or who teach a false gospel or who promote other damning heresies are to be exposed publicly and their false teachings rebuked. Those who refuse to expose damning heresies and false teachers are usually rewarded in this life with a large “ministry” in Protestant, neo-evangelical, evangelical or even many fundamentalist circles today. Those who expose the dangerous teachings of false teachers are usually given little of material possessions in this life by the god of this world. However, their family sees their strong convictions and bold Christ-like example and they are given the wonderful fruits of the Spirit, many blessings both materially and spiritually and GOD’s blessed promise to never leave them or forsake them.
The coveted “ministry opportunities” (i.e. fun in the sun) of those who expose false teachers are limited and their lives are plagued by persecution. Who then wants to speak out? The obvious answer is not very many, but that doesn’t change the commands of Scripture. Payday someday and those enjoying comfort in this life will have to “face the music” in the next life.
My guess is that this article will not get rousing support by pastors across the country. If anything, these many pastors who supposedly are all about the Bible are for the most part a lot of comfort-seekers who refuse to speak out to expose Satanic doctrines and false gospels and who, like serpents, would rather turn on me instead in order to maintain their little warm place on their little rock (aka as the church office).
I am but a lowly blogger who follows the Spirit and the Word of our LORD. They are the ones who should be saying these things and shepherding the flock. Why aren’t most of them speaking out? Many “wolves” were exposed at the signing of the Manhattan Declaration which is further discussed in one of the articles linked toward the end of this article. Even errant Dr. MacArthur, who has embraced “means of grace sanctification” and who believes that one can take the mark of the beast and still be saved“, sees the dangers of the Manhattan Declaration. MacArthur defines the dangers of this “declaration” in the article at this link. Why are so many of these “popular pastors” so errant? Why are they the only ones given the opportunity to speak for Protestant believers by CNN, Fox News, and other mainstream media? Why are they so adored by the masses?
“We are of God: he that knows God hears us; he that is not of God hears not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.” – I John 4:6
“Pastor” is a word that is equivalent to “shepherd”. What does a shepherd do? A shepherd cares for the sheep and their physical needs which Jesus showed forth by example. He feeds the sheep as Jesus commanded Peter to do three times. However, this is where many pastors end their ministry, but a shepherd will watch out for wolves and robbers as well. The shepherd also spots dangers such as rocky precipices and thorny ways and will steer his sheep to safety.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber.” – John 10:1
“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” – Matthew 7:15
“I know that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock” – Act 20:29
Is your pastor a shepherd who feeds you the Word, cares for your financial and physical burdens, leads you by example, guides you away from dangerous snares, and protects you from false teachers who, like wolves and robbers, seek to steal or kill you? Or is he instead a funny man, public relations man, a “spin doctor”, a politician, or a lecturer? Is he out to protect the flock or entertain them? To keep the lambs assigned to him informed of wolves and thieves or to keep his own wallet padded?
We have the apostles’ commands as seen in the Bible passages listed below. Defend the Gospel and GOD’s Word from man-made systems and alterations that pervert them.
Both Paul and Jude were adamantly opposed to false teachers who divided the Body of Christ by their errant teachings. Today, people are so reprobate that they believe those who point out heresy are the “dividers”, instead of realizing that those who teach heresy are the dividers, troublemakers, and disturbers of Christianity unity. Reprobate thinking is the new norm for American Christians especially. Jude, in the following verse, makes it clear that GOD’s Word was given to us once for all time. The word for “once” is the Greek “hapax” and means one time only forever and never needs repetition as the Lexicon clearly states. It is the same word used regarding man dying only once after which he will face the judgment and also it the same word used for Jesus’ death on the cross which gives the cross finality as a once-for-all sacrifice for sins that never needs to be repeated (a fact which Catholics ignore as they heretically and blasphemously repeat and repeat the sacrifice of Christ during their wafer ceremony in their dark pagan Masses to their eternal shame).
“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” – Jude 1:3
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness” – Romans 1:18
Most of the mega-ministry leaders that you see today touted as the popular leaders of evangelical and fundamentalist Christianity are actually more interested in defending their way of life than the Gospel of Christ.
You might see them on a cruise or a missions trip to Hawaii or a ministry stop in Dolly-world or devouring the food at a buffet in a high-end restaurant with the dollars sent to their ministry by their followers who wish to repay them for speaking only of Scripture and allowing people to interpret their words in whatever way they wish, instead of applying Scripture and exposing false teachers, error, and false works of darkness.
Avoid visiting or being around false teachers in any way. Do not visit their churches or ministries in order to have “interfaith dialogue” or “influence them”. Pragmatic thinking is what got King Saul (with his sacrifice) and Aaron (with his golden calf) in trouble when they decided to do things pragmatically rather than by the Book.
“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.” – Romans 16:17
“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” – Ephesians 5:11
“Whosoever transgresses, and abides not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abides 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 bids him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” – 2 John 1:9-11
The Pope and Catholicism, Muslims, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Freemasons, other cults and religions, and even certain heretical Protestants teach a false gospel today. Many of them teach that salvation is through baptism. Such damnable heresy is refuted in the article at this link.. Those ministers who refuse to name these religions and specific false teachers, as the apostles did, or who refuse to defend the Word and the Gospel from those who alter them, and who shirk from spiritual battle are unqualified to be in the ministry of Christ. Many are the ministries who protect their financial interests by avoiding their duty to expose false teaching, and they exponentially increase their sins by resisting their duties in the name of “showing grace” to others. This reprobate thinking has become the norm in American Christianity.
Many years ago, I remember one gentleman in a ministry saying that he considered the exposing of the unfruitful works of darkness to be likened unto “Crusading” and that the ministry for which he was a public relations representative didn’t subscribe to such thinking. It’s sad, because this man and many, many more like Him are guilty of disobeying Jesus Christ, who they profess is their LORD and Master. Obeying the commands of GOD is not “Crusading” but rather “obeying”.
This particular obese man was in a comfortable position where he could laze around, eat out at fancy restaurants, lie to workers in order to get them to work for less money, and take trips to Hawaii (most corporations refuse to reimburse such waste as expenditures), and all in the name of “ministry activities”. The truth is that this man is not that rare. Many ministries are simply havens for those who don’t wish to work, and love to play, eat, and play politics.
Few wish to speak out in defense of the Gospel or suffer stigmatization, isolation, threats, ridicule, or persecution for exposing the works of darkness and the lies of false teachers. Some of the false gospels and false teachers that are prevalent today are addressed in articles like the following which we have published in order to protect the sheep. Acquaint yourself with the principles of Scripture and be sure you can spot error and expose those who are promoting error.

Many false teachers are shown in the above article links and in the photo captions in this article. Billy Graham is one of the most deceptive false teachers who ever lived as can be seen in the video at this link. Right behind him is Dr. James Dobson who is exposed in many articles for his assistance to false teachers such as the article at this link and the article at this link. Dr. Dobson treats Catholics as “brothers in Christ” despite the enormous number of false teachings and the false gospel promoted by the Vatican.
One time, after I heard Dr. Dobson mention on the airwaves that a Jewish Rabbi was a “brother”, I confronted the founder of an international radio ministry for allowing Dr. Dobson to air such a message to the Body of Christ. The founder of this large ministry simply ignored me and later treated me in a most cruel manner. I will allow GOD to recompense him for his deeds accordingly.
Even Jerry Falwell, as shown in the article at this link, and other fundamentalist leaders have recommended or compromised with false teachers rather than exposing them.
I am concerned that soon the ship of nominal Christendom will be completely guided by spiritual pirates if pastors do not speak out. The writing is already on the wall as can be seen in the article at this link. I believe there’s a very good reason that so many people are beginning to return to the “Reformers’ theology”. For in fact, the Reformers were a half-way house between Catholicism and Biblical Truth. The very name “Reformers” pertained to their desire to reform the Catholic religious system, a system built upon almost complete Baal worship with a little veneer of Biblical truth swabbed across its surface. Why reform a false religion? Why protest a false religion as the Protestants did? Why not just denounce that cursed institute of Baal and its sacrilege in adjoining the name of Christ to their pagan rituals? Many Reformers believed in salvation by the sacraments and they confused the grace of GOD. Many adopted “means of grace” theology which indirectly subscribes salvation through grace obtained through works, while other Reformers believed in salvation obtained directly through works.
Either way, works were introduced to effect salvation, whether indirectly through complex syllogisms and crafty argumentation as many Presbyterians today attempt to do or whether by simple direct works salvation. Thus, with so many returning from a simple “salvation by grace through faith” theology as Scripture teaches to a very complex construct of works salvation or an outright belief in works salvation which takes Protestants back into the bondage of Rome, we are seeing a backward trend into the Dark Ages.
Furthermore, Calvinism is a good example, although there are many other examples that could be named, of those who would add man-made systems to the Word of GOD. Where GOD is silent, we should also be silent. We should not presume to understand His secret things, His mysteries or His mind. We should never add fabricated details to His Words.
Many have added to GOD’s Word through their eschatology as well. We must never add new meaning or thought to the Words of GOD.
Divide and conquer – is that not a classical military strategy? Has Calvinism been a means for Satan to divide the Body of Christ? As a footnote, John Calvin attended College de Montaigu, the same theological college as Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Catholic intelligence and military order known as the Jesuits. The Jesuits were founded to destroy non-Catholics via their strategic Counter-Reformation war and they headed the Inquisitions against anyone who refused to bow to the Roman Catholic empire. History also reveals that Calvin also put to death those who disagreed with him as well. This being said, I realize that there are Presbyterians who would disagree with baptismal salvation and who would disagree with Calvin’s killing of dissenters; yet even these Presbyterians would still call themselves Calvinists without any shame for the cruelty that Calvin showed other believers. Why not call themselves Christians instead of Calvinists? Why emulate a man who was errant? Or are they indeed converts of Calvin and not Christ?
It was Catholic Knight of Malta William Randolph Hearst who told his giant media conglomerate to put Billy Graham “on the map” as seen in the article at this link. It was Billy Graham who led Protestants toward a more ecumenical relationship with the Vatican and who led Protestants to emphasize the “end justifies the means” (a Jesuit philosophy). Graham displayed this philosophy openly in his “evangelism” films where he used bikini-clad girls at church volleyball socials, rock music, testimonies of Hollywood celebrity “Christians”, and the same fleshly, godless conduct that the Bible forbids. “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world“.
Jesus, on the other hand, stated that if we love Him, we will keep His commandments. We also saw what happened repeatedly in Scripture to those who used pragmatic or deceptive or unrighteous practices to accomplish ministry purposes. Most were killed or punished severely by GOD.
I suspect that discernment is not the problem with most church goers today, but rather true salvation. I also wonder if many church goers and Christian school and university graduates are converts of men rather than the Holy Spirit. How else can you explain the majority of believers in America who say they believe the Bible is GOD’s Word, and then only a third believe it should be taken literally? Why else do people defend their favorite evangelist or pastor, even if they stand against the Bible’s teaching? Was Graham, who proclaims a false, damning gospel in the video above, ever really a Christian? Was he a Jesuit soldier? Jesuit soldiers are trained from youth to be infiltrators and dissemblers as shown in the Jesuit oath at this link which exhorts Rome’s secret soldiers to use shadow warfare and masks.
Are many of these other men also the same? Or are these men just part of the “falling away” that the Bible said would take place before the very end of time? Why are so many of these pulpit men that the media has “puffed” into larger-than-life status seemingly joining into more sacramental, false teaching like Rome? Why are they signing agreements with Rome? I don’t think we will probably know in this life for sure. The list of those being regaled as some type of larger-than-life spiritual heroes by today’s media networks to the masses of Christians who chase the latest person who represents morals and dogma that “sound good” is quite extensive. Didn’t the Satanic Freemason Albert Pike have a book called “Morals and Dogma”? Having morals and dogma is not the definition of a Christian.
Men of Rome “wearing black” lead our nation into sins such as sodomy, abortion, and anti-motherhood, only to have other men of Rome “wearing white” come out with guns blazing in a way that inspires the masses of nominal Christians who lack discernment and who are completely ignorant of the history of Rome and the doctrines of Scripture. One of the most dangerous things in the world today is an outspoken, eloquent, morally courageous individual who speaks out against the ills of the world, while leading people into a false gospel. The list of people today who I could list in this article are enormous. So many false teachers exist and I have such a small amount of time to expose them all. Today, we are plagued with these types of individuals on every horizon of political and spiritual leadership.
Beyond the realm of heretics and false teachers and clergy, there are individuals wearing business suits who are ready to lead people into hell with a false gospel via moral crusades through their power in the media, Hollywood, or other venues. Those of this ilk who are most dangerous are the ones who sound the most moral and convincing. These crusaders, such as Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, or lesser known media personalities like stay-at-home-mom champion and popular blogger Matt Walsh, are fighting for the important morals of the day while leading the masses into the arms of Rome.
While Sean or Bill appear to be at conflict with the Vatican at times, ultimately they are pointing people to Catholicism and its traditions and beliefs. They are a good example of how Rome owns both sides, so that in the end, they are cheered by both sides. Have Christians lost their voice? Do they really need to be represented by Catholics now? Or by that Mormon Glenn Beck whose religious leaders don the Masonic aprons of the Freemasons? And why not since the Freemasons Joseph Smith and Brigham Young founded them. These Satanic Freemasons are also linked to Rome since every Freemason is a Knights Templar as the old saying goes that has been repeated by more than one knightly author.
Do Christians believe that they are allowed to sit on their backside and let those who teach a false gospel lead the fight for morality in our land and define the rules of engagement? Do Christians really need Catholic Fox News, owned by Knight of St. Gregory Rupert Murdoch, to be their voice now? Is the real answer to our nation’s problems found in whose media empire is bigger? Or is it in how repentant the nation is? Matt Walsh rings out a message of support for many of the conservative homeschoolers and stay-at-home moms who naively stumble along behind him waving their banner of support for him. Why would Christian moms support this guy? Is it because they feel they can’t think for themselves or speak out on their own? Do they really need this blogger to represent their views, in spite of the fact that he is directing people into the arms of Catholicism and ultimately into the lake of fire?
Matt recently stated his support of the new and first-ever Jesuit Pope, an article that he authored on his site as seen at this link, in spite of the fact that the Jesuit Pope stands for a false gospel, sympathy for sodomites and all sorts of damning practices and doctrines of Rome, and may possibly be one of the most occult Popes in history. Matt Walsh, is a great example of a what a dissembler is. One who has read the Jesuit oath knows that being a dissembler is a huge part of their job.
It’s not our job to judge the salvation of these men, but it is our job to judge false teaching by the words of Scripture and to mark those who are teaching damning doctrines that will send men to hell. In fact, the Bible commands us to do so. We must stand with our own families by GOD’s Word even when it seems that all of the radio-television pastors, mega-church pastors, and other “celebrity” pastors are teaching heresy and false gospels. “As in the day of Noah” … isn’t that what the Bible said about the end times? Only eight souls were saved. Do you remember Jesus’ words?
“… Nevertheless when the Son of man comes, shall he find faith on the earth? – Luke 18:8 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition” – 2 Thessalonians 2:3
The Bible is GOD’s Word and it says let GOD be true and every man a liar. Paul said that even if an angel taught another gospel to let them be damned or accursed or “anathema”. If we believe what a man teaches us, because he’s popular among evangelicals or fundamentalists, even when it contradicts the Scriptures, then we are guilty of man-worship.
Christendom isn’t just a body of people who talk about Jesus, but it is the Body of Christ who refuse to believe in a false gospel that damns souls to hell forever and who instead believe in the Truth of the Word of GOD. They have a relationship with Jesus Christ. True believers will want to warn others of false gospels. The fact that so few are teaching a true gospel and are refusing to warn others of the false teachers and counterfeit gospels that are popular today is a warning sign that the Body of Christ may be far, far smaller than you might suspect.
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it. “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” – Matthew 7:13-15
