have lived, worked, pastored, all over Texas. Denver City, Seminole, Midland,
Blanket, Eastland, Stamford, Ft. Worth, Brenham, and others. I have ranched, rough
necked, drove a big truck, all while trying to preach the gospel to poor folk
who could not afford a big shot. I hauled gravel out of the big pit near you.
Retired now, due to heart problems. If you're ever out this way give us a shout
and we will put out the feed bag and talk about the only one worth talking about.

we believe that we are living in the last days then we must be aware that we are
in the midst of the greatest era of religious deception the world has ever known.
Considering the repeated warnings throughout the New Testament, by Jesus and the
apostles, how can we possibly allow ourselves to be deceived?
Bible tells us that there are many among us who simply do not have a love for
the truth and therefore will actually choose to believe lies - lies which will
destroy them. Men can be haughty and stubborn creatures who often put "blinders"
on so they cannot see anything other than the lie they have fixed their vision
upon. In this category are many respectable religious people who have a kind of
"religious stubbornness" which is immune to correction.
the Bible tells us that these are doomed to live eternally in darkness and suffering.
on the other hand, may be unwittingly deceived only in certain areas of doctrine
by having followed a prophet or teacher who is false (but very clever), while
others have become a victim of their own pride or religious authority. Again,
Satan's ministers are disguised as "ministers of righteousness", who teach many
truths of Christianity, mixing in a little lie here and there, or creating new
doctrines or even entire religions which are an exquisitely woven fabric of truth
false prophets and teachers are not openly advocating "devil worship". Rather,
they are preaching their own version of "Jesus Christ" (or false-christ).
clever is the enemy of Truth that we must always be on our guard, firmly established
in God's word given in the New Testament apostolic scripture, and stand willing
to be corrected by the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, whenever we see that
we may have strayed out of His "narrow way". If there is something which seems
to conflict with Bible scripture, if we observe that a teacher is not consistent
in sound apostolic doctrine, or if we perceive that his motivations (for authority
or personal gain) are not right, we must do what the Bible says to do: "Try the
spirits whether they are of God"!
case which is presented here is built upon a solid foundation of scripture and
historical fact. There is only one desire in this:
lift up Jesus Christ and encourage you to have a solid reliance upon apostolic
scripture, the only completely trustworthy source of sound doctrine.
are the jury which must try this case. The Judge is waiting to see what verdict
you will deliver once you have weighed all the evidence. You must choose between
the false apostles and the true apostles of Jesus Christ; between false doctrines
of men, and the sound, solid and safe apostolic doctrine of salvation through
the Blood of the Lamb.
Bible says to judge not by appearance but to judge "righteous judgment", therefore
you must first show that you do have a sincere love of truth through your prayerful
submission to Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, and by your study of and
reliance upon the gospel of the New Testament faith.
remember, just because its popular doesn't mean its right in God's sight, "...for
that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God."
submit that there is only one way "which leadeth unto life", and that way is very
narrow. To that teaching, testimony or doctrine which subverts, reinterprets and
attempts to stand above the gospel of the apostles of Jesus Christ, the verdict
must be swift and conclusive: it is false.
I encourage you to study God's Word and acquaint yourself with the precious and
simple message of Jesus Christ found in the Christian New Testament. Therein we
find the blessed truth of God's grace and love, and the promise of eternal life
through the new birth. As we are truly "born-again" of the Spirit, even those
who have been cruelly deceived by the enemy of Truth, can become renewed and find
rest and freedom for their souls! Freedom from fear, freedom from strife, and
freedom from the bondage of spiritual pride.
we are indeed in the Last Days (and I believe we are) and if some have been led
into error, they may not have much time to make the crucial decision to allow
the Holy Spirit to correct their course. It is not our religion, church, or ministry
of man which is at stake, but our very lives in eternity.
