The present in the light of the past, and filtered through
prophetic passages from the King James Bible

Baptist Bride urban legend spreading like a plague.

Thousands of gullible Baptists in the pew are being told they belong to the only true church. They are taught to believe that every other professing believer in Jesus Christ, worldwide, is either a secret Brider, or else they are not born again. One mail order doctor told us this when we confronted him. He told us we were Briders and did not know it yet. That is just exactly what John Paul II tells me. He claims I will come back to Papa one day soon.

It is the height of effete snobbery for such a beggarly small group of Neo-Nazi bigots to think they are the pure ones, for there are NO Briders in many parts of the world where the Lord has His built His Church. Nor do they have a clue that they are suspect and allegedly on their way to hell, at least according to the Brider blarney.

One cheeky doctor in California wants us to accept him as a fine man of God while he tears our face off for not being counted among the Brider number. What a blasted fool. This is precisely what the Popes of Rome did for about 800 years until recent Popes put on the kid gloves. To organize under a name, then add a doctrine, is reverse logic. The only one with this doctrine, from 300 AD until the Briders came along in very recent years, was the Pope!

The Body of Christ existed as soon as the saints in Jerusalem began to meet to pray and fellowship, and that church was NOT Baptist. It was Jewish, and no other church has ever existed like it. Why? Simply this-- Nearly all the saints in the church in Jerusalem were God fearing Jews BEFORE the Cross. They were NOT Baptists.

The name Baptist was not applied to any churches until about 1400 when the Anabaptists came into existence. Until that time, the saints were called Donatists, Winklers, Stablers, Abergensians (who were mildly heretic in denying the Old Testament like some Baptists defacto), Waldenseans, Cathari, and finally Anabaptists. Ironically, they did not name themselves-- the Pope called them Anabaptists in derision, for they rebaptized all their converts from the Whore. None of the groups before the Anabaptists even spoke the word "Baptist" of themselves.

But, some of these jerk Briders claim that all those groups were "secret Baptists." It is sort of the idea, like the rock in the wilderness, that the name "Baptist" followed all the Lord's saints underground as a deep dark secret from John the Baptist onward, and that is precisely what the Briders claim.

We have come to the point at this Journal, where we now consider all Briders as damned to hell, for they have taken on the Whore doctrine of Papal authority. They claim a church is not valid if it comes into existence without another Brider church officially blessing it. They claim Apostolic succession from John the Baptist, or at least Paul. They will flatly tell you that Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost cannot start a local church without their approval.

Thus, if you are a Brider and refuse to repent, you will go to hell. You are a blasphemer of Jesus Christ, who said:

Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

JESUS is the Head and founder of every true church, not some fat faced pot bellied Jackboot Baptist preacher with cherry pie stains on his tie. I have declared war on these scum. Why? Answer: They have wounded many saints and think they are cute. I hope to be faithful to my Lord to hate them with perfect hatred and tear down their stronghold. I hope, in the spirit of Jehu, to do them as much damage as I can in my lifetime.

If you are a Brider, you are not a Baptist, you are a devil. You do NOT believe Jesus can build a church without your approval, and you are just another Pope. All Popes go to hell.

Psalm 139:21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.

How about copying this and send it to a Brider?

Enough already!

I could give you maybe 100 more stories like the ones in this section if I just kept letting my mind roll. I am so sick of Fundamental Baptists.

Fundamentalism started in about 1925. Some conference was called somewhere and the "Fundamentals of the Faith" were laid down in a sort of manifesto. This was in response to German rationalism and the earliest trends in ecumenism from Scotland and the deadening of the old line seminaries in the USA.

The thing seemed good, and it did make for a new name of derision used by the intellectuals of Christendom.

"You are a Fundamentalist!"

The religious rags picked up on it over the years, and the media finally made it a vocabulary item for the whole world. During those years, this was a red badge of courage to those who were on the narrow way, for they were considered the weird and kinky folks of Christendom. The thing was actually a healthy thing for Bible believers. They had an identity which helped them step out of the broad way into the narrow Fundamentalist way.

As we got into the 60s and 70s it became more acceptable to be a Fundamentalist. The Baptist Bible Fellowship had made its formal and complete flight from the Southern Baptist Convention, and they were starting to call themselves Fundamentalists. The Independent Fundamental Churches of America was by then an old organization, and they were formalizing their forces and recruiting men like John MacArthur. Jerry Falwell, who once held a party for Mr. Moon, was called "Mr. Fundamentalist." The end of the process has come as Billy Graham, who says God receives sincere Buddhists as they are, is being lifted up by the media as the leader of Fundamentalism in the world.

I am out of here folks.


Many many independent Baptists are overweight, many are literal buffoons, playing with the Militia, Bo Gritz, yannis and greys, and in general, any screwy thing they can lay their hands on-- anything but serving the saints, feeding sheep, and STUDY the Word of God.

The average Fundamental Baptist preacher is a lazy slow belly who will NOT teach because he will not study. We were in attendance when one preacher was in the pulpit ready to start the service, and someone walked in the back door. The preacher immediately walked to his office and grabbed another set of sermon notes from the file cabinet and abandoned the book study he was doing. The vast majority of Baptist preachers dive into their sermong barrel, file of sermons, for something they did ten years ago, or worse, something they stole from a ten year old Sword of the Lord or Peter Ruckman.

I am a Peculiar Bible Believing Bigot.

Some pious potentate will tell me I am grandstanding. Not so, ye tender skinned ones.


Deuteronomy 14:2 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.

1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:


1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

1 John 2:5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.


1 Timothy 4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

Hebrews 10:39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.


Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Psalm 16:8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

Proverbs 12:3 A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.

Colossians 1:21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

If I could think of a more in-your-face yet biblical name, I would use it. I want to be known as a pain in the neck to the devil. I do not want to be the friend of Billy Graham, Jack Hyles, and Jerry Falwell. I want to be avoided by anyone not willing to follow my Master's example. If that bothers you, so be it. I don't want anyone following me, bragging on me, or using me as a point of reference. All I want to know is that I may have pointed some saint to Jesus, and watch him walk away from me with Jesus, and never see him again this side of heaven. That will be OK.

If I have some fellowship in this way, I would like that. If not, well what's new-- I have very little truck with these jackboot jerks I am now associated with. But, I am a bit slow on the draw I think. All over the USA, the UK, Australia, and the world people are stepping out of the Fundamental Baptist loonie bins and starting home churches. Dr. J. Vernon McGee said, during the 1970s, that the early church started in the homes, and he thought that the local church, just before the return of Christ, would be back in the homes.



Just read about the truck driver who was afraid to come into church after those guys at another church wouldn't let him in without a tie.

Same thing happened to me in 1974, the Sunday after I graduated from Indian Creek Jr. High in Trafalgar, Indiana. I had on the new white dress shirt, black dress pants, new shoes that I wore on my graduation that Friday afternoon, and when I got off the church bus Sunday morning at ____________ Baptist Church near my home in ___________, Indiana, I was stopped by the pastor, name of P________, who told me I was "indecent" because I didn't have a tie. Now, this is the wrong thing to do to a then-14 year old teenager. He embarrassed me right in front of the whole church.

I WALKED the entire five miles back home and told my dad what he'd done. Dad worked him over pretty good when the sorry rat came back on "visitation" later that week, and he threatened to have him arrested if he ever came back. This nearly turned me forever against Christianity. I didn't accept Christ until 1980, when I was an Airman stationed in Oklahoma.

I moved to Tennessee in 1985, and it was here I met my wife. We were married in another Independent Fundamentalist Baptist church here, _______ Baptist, in 1988. The preacher remarked, "Why, we've done plenty of 'poor' weddings!", which was an obvious slam against me as I was employed as a Security Guard at the time and didn't make a whole lot of money.

Eventually, they goaded me into going to Tennessee Temple University in Chattanooga, and I got so sick of Independent Baptists I eventually just gave up and quit. In 1992, I wound up with pneumonia and my wife would go pick up my class work and I'd do this at home to keep my grades up. I finished that year with a B- or C. I had made the proper arrangements with the school because of my illness so I wouldn't get demerits for not being in church and chapel.

Well, lo and behold! I get back to my home town after school was out and go back to _________ Baptist, and that weasel, Bob __________, the assistant pastor, SLANDERED me from the pulpit in front of the entire congregation for 'not obeying the rules of Tennessee Temple.." That was the last straw. I caught him outside and busted him in the mouth and told him what a liar he was. I never went back to TTU, and have never set foot inside another Independent Baptist church again!

We eventually joined the Southern Baptist church I previously attended, and have been there ever since. I stopped going there for a time because some of the miscreants from _________ Baptist followed me, and started spreading malicious gossip about me at our new church. I told the pastor if he didn't want a slander suit on his hands he'd better "counsel" certain loose-tongued members or all Hell would shortly break loose. He promptly kicked these people out and I have had no further problems.

These whacko fascist fundamentalists make me sick. They nearly caused me to reject Christ with their legalism. I'm currently researching for a short book about these UN-Christian fundamentalists, and would love to hear from ANYONE who's had these sorts of experiences in Independent Fundamentalist Baptist churches! I love your site. You hit it right dead center!

I think We at Blessed Quietness Journal are seeking the Lord's mind in suggesting an alternative to the mongrel deformities now prevailing in the Baptist movement. It is a historical FACT that Christ built his Church for almost 2000 years, and the Baptists only have existed since about 1650 AD. They lie about this and claim anyone who was doctrinally sound all the way back to John the Baptist. I fully expect some jackboot jerkenheimer, with a mail order doctorate in Bubtist, to soon claim Moses was the first Baptist. After all, did he not baptize the Hebrews in the Red Sea?

We need to close the chapter headed "Baptist," and move on as Christ shows us the fellowship of true narrow way saints who walk in humility and grace in the Holy Ghost.

Give a Wide Berth to the USS Baptist Bull Horn

Two things have happened recently which call for an observation on another strange phenomenon happening in Fundamental Baptist and Pentecostal circles.

A friend of ours, looking for a church to pastor, went to preach in a church in an area which will go un-named. Our friend has always been a zealous Bible teacher. Well, after he had preached, the men of the church told him they liked his teaching, but they wanted a man who was more forceful in the pulpit. By this they meant, hollering, yelling, and spitting all over the folks in the front row.

Another example of this came in last week in which a doctrinaire Atheist told how he came to be born again, got onto the narrow way, even learned the hard way about the textual issue and defense of the King James Bible. He visited some dead denominational churches and gave up on them. So, he went to seek out Fundamental Baptist churches since he had learned from reading several books that they were defenders of the KJV.

He found that every one of them was ego maniac about Baptist Heritage, and he also learned that they spent a lot of time hollering and yelling like they were mad at someone. The Baptist Heritage thing grossed him out because he has always been a research oriented person, and he was already a student of church history as an Atheist. His further studies after salvation extended his knowledge, and when he was told that John the Baptist was the first Baptist, he nearly threw up. The other thing he could not understand was all the screaming and yelling and bawdy talk.

I will now tell you what is happening. Fundamental Baptist Jackboot preachers do NOT have a leg to stand on with regard to this Baptist Heritage thing. Real researched history, BY MEN FAVORABLE TO THE ANABAPTISTS, proves that the name Baptist, as applied to a movement, was not used until AFTER the Anabaptists were starting to be washed out by compromise and legalism. Thus, about 1650 at the earliest. Before the Anabaptist era there were NO Baptists. It takes a gullible fool to make a Waldensean, Abergensian, or a Donatist into a Baptist. If you can do that, can you also make lead into gold. It would take just as much alchemy, or devilment.

So, when you have a Mother Goose fairy tale history, and, may I add, when you won't study for your sermons and research your claims, you have to raise your voice. The Jackboot preacher is really trying to yell and scream loud enough so that you will be overwhelmed by the hubris and adrenal frenzy of the moment, and hope that your brain does not go into gear. It worked for Adolph Hitler and Fidel Castro, and it works with the average dumbed down Baptist in the pew. He submits to Mother Goose. Have you also kissed your brain bye bye, friend?

There is another factor compounding this problem. Many Fundamental Baptist preachers have learned, from attending preacher's conferences and rallies, that you can be the center of attention if you are loud and project a powerful force of presence. It works, in the foyer, at the noon meal dinner table, in the parking lot, and even downtown when you meet some other leader or Christian. Our family has gotten pretty good at identifying Fundamental Baptist and Pentecostal preachers in the market place. They spew and roar around in their dumpy overstuffed suit, and they are the center of attention. If they only knew what the ungodly think of them!

Now, I want you to think of the USS Baptist Blimp or Pentecostal preacher you know like this. Next time you see him in action, ask yourself, "Can I superimpose Jesus Christ over this man right now?" Would Jesus, or Paul, be behaving like this in Caperneum or Nazareth. Was this the manner of Paul up on Mars Hill in Athens? In this matter, you cannot tell a particle of difference between a Fundamental Baptist and a Pentecostal Type AAA.

So, my dear friend, as you start your House Church, PLEASE shuck off this rowdy noisy approach to Christian zeal. Ask yourself often, "If Jesus came through the door of our House Church right now, would He put His hands over His ears, or even turn and walk right back out the door?"

Proverbs 17:1 Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife.

Eccl. 4:6 Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.

Isaiah 32:17 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.

Eccl. 9:17 The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools.

Isaiah 14:7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.

It is OK to sing with exaltation unto God. But noise and hollering is NOT part of biblical praise.

1 Thessalonians 4:10 And indeed ye do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more;
11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;
12 That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.

So, in context, we see that increasing more and more does NOT mean getting louder and louder, and we also see that being a blessing to "them that are without" will NOT include screaming and spewing in their face.

1 Peter 3:1 Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
2 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.
3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:

One thing is worse than a USS Baptist Bull Horn-- That is, a hollering and bawdy Baptist woman. This is the ultimate devilish side show and will drive off any thinking saint or sinner alike.



Let me end this item with an observation. We have made a good number of friends in the past who were NOT the rowdy type. They sure did have zeal, and they preached with force of the Spirit of God in their manner in the pulpit. But, they were not this loud offensive type. There still are men like this, and to you who are such, I can only say, don't let this trend of noise and rage change you. We are NOT under obligation to prove our zeal to anyone.

Our zeal is to be the work of the Holy Ghost, so it should not be turned on and off to accomplish the needs of our punisimous egos. Let us walk circumspectly. Let us not offend the quiet people. They may be some of our most faithful and thoughtful people. If we drive them off by yelling in their faces, we could one day have nothing left but a convention of buffoon's.


Leodicean Christianity and Jackboot preachers

During the 1960s and 1970s, many Bible believing churches were taken over by "the rule of the people," which is what "Leodicean" means in Revelation 3. Churches threw pastors away in record numbers, and the stories of brutality were beyond belief. I knew of one pastor who was voted out after he went home Sunday evening, and Monday morning the Marshall and a couple of deacons were at the parsonage door giving him the minimum notice to get out of the parsonage.

Well, things have changed. A new meaner and leaner breed of preachers has evolved who are masters at whipping the flock of God lest they rise up against them. Now, we have preachers who are PART OF the Laodicean mess. Now, the people in the pew AND their pastor have a "rule of the people" arrangement. The people are guruized by the preacher, and the preacher makes very sure to teach, by warping the Word of God in his favor, that he is the center of all church life and practice.

Thus, every soul in one of these Laodicean churches is clear out from under the final authority of the Lord Jesus Christ. They give Jesus lip service, but they do not really want His Lordship over them. We must note the Laodicean destiny which Jesus promised these people:

Revelation 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

We see that these people are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked. They are a total mess, and you cannot convince them to change. You will waste you breath trying to convince them that they have erred. They have to figure it out for themselves, and very few ever will. This is the last church age, and these Jackboots and their guruized followers will soon enter the Great Tribulation.

"What," you say, "Fundamental Baptists and Pentecostals.... Going into the Great Tribulation and to hell?" Right! What better way to deceive the world than with old fashioned KJV Only Bible thumping which is designed by Satan to exalt man? Our friend and street preacher, Rich McIntire, said before he died, that he felt the Antichrist would come on the scene carrying a King James Bible. We saw Bill Clinton, in several photo ops, walking out of the Methodist Church where the preacher said Jesus was a queer, carrying a King James Bible. If you think the KJV Only standard in many of these Jackboot churches is some consolation, I have some fantastic ocean front property I want to sell you just 40 miles due east of Miami, Florida.

For the record, I am KJB Only with zero tolerance for funny bibles, but friend, you better not leave it at that.

That Jackboot preacher who is bashing sheep in your neighborhood is a type of the Antichrist, for, in the Name of Christ, he is making a little god of himself. The church which would follow him has had its candle stick removed by Jesus, they have been "spued," and they are post-Christian-- sub-Christian. You owe them nothing but mighty rebuke.

You better get this right friend. The Jackboot Baptist church and its pastor have put Jesus Christ on the OUTSIDE of the local church, and they are damned to hell. No other church, messed up as it was in Revelation 2-3, had Jesus standing on the OUTSIDE of the church. This includes the Roman Whore age in Chapter Two (Thyatira-- Rev. 3:18-29). Some of you won't like that, but I can tell you that I have a Catholic priest friend who is far less self-exalting than the average Jackboot pastor I have had to deal with. The Catholic Church has Jezebel inside their church, but they don't have the measure of Satan that Laodicea does. Check it out. This does not mean that my Catholic priest friend is born again, but the point is, Laodiceans are mad with self-love. Many of them make Robert Schuler look paranoid. Their pastor may very likely be demon possessed and was never born again.



The average Fundamental Baptist preacher today defines the righteous, backslidden, or the wicked in terms of two things:

1. A necessary proof text to set the stage for the kill.

2. "And they left us six months ago," which being interpreted means, they are disloyal to the Jackboot First Sergeant.

You wonder why I said, "righteous, backslidden, or the wicked" don't you? Well, if you leave one of the churches of these jackboot boys, for any reason they do not approve, it matters not whether you are born again or lost-- YOU are to blame, and YOU are the traitor. YOU have left the virtual Fundamental Baptist epicenter of truth and glory. So, YOU are the wicked boogie man, whether you are backslidden or right with God.

Dear Lord, deliver us all from being this kind of hireling to your people. I find very little difference between the average Eastern mystic guru and the vast majority of Fundamental Baptist pastors. The Eastern guru differs only in that he is not saved. In every other way the two are the same animal. I hasten to add also that about 99.5% of all Pentecostal and Charismatic pastors behave in the same fashion. I also suspect many of them are NOT saved.

So, by the grace of God, I have no further need to identify with Fundamentalism and the Baptist variety in particular. I am going nowhere-- I stay where I have been for all my days of serving the Lord-- a slave of Christ, and a servant of His sheep. It is these Jackboot hirelings who have gone somewhere.

1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.

Recently, I have heard of men who adopted the mentality of Adolph Hitler. Hitler saw that he was going to lose the war, so he punished the German people for what he took to be disloyalty, and he refused to capitulate. Instead, he drove the Germans on and on until Germany was reduced to cinders, and then he killed himself (or fled as some have conjectured).

Some of these Jackboot Baptists see that their local church is dwindling, and they are too proud to examine their own life to see, "if there be any wicked way in me." They decide the people of the local church have let them down or are disloyal, and they pound the people until finally all have left. In the end, they decide the church house and the entity of that local church is unworthy of their lofty view of themselves, and they manipulate the property into their personal control and flog it cheap to some cult. They take the proceeds, and they head for other parts under the pretext that, "We are going to start a new work for the Lord." There often is never a real local church planted, and the cash seems to disappear into deep pockets of "good godly friends" and their own family.

These same Jackboot preachers will mock and rage at TBN and Benny Hinn for their posh facilities and vast wealth which was skimmed off of their followers by stealth, yet these Jackboots think their dissolution of the church property into their pickets is somehow worthy of the Carpenter of Nazareth. Hmmmmm

I conclude with one last observation.

This is the end of the Philadelphian Church Age, and we are well into the Laodicean Whore church Age. I do believe that Satan has seduced these Fundamental Baptists with lust for power and self-will, money, food, and sex. I must conclude that many of them were never born again. Yes, that is what you read. I believe the last and greatest deception is this. A pastor, trained in a Fundamental Baptist school, with a King James Bible waving in the air, spewing and flailing like a broken record, and with a spit shined Marine troop of short haired Jackboot deacons-- And, this pastor has never been born again.

With all their warts, I am far more interested in the old gravely self-effacing manners of a thousand ordinary pastors around the world who shuffle in the door Sunday morning with their heart full-- ready to teach. These men have the confidence that their friends at the church house will get on just fine with the Lord Jesus Christ as their only Head and the Holy Ghost as their instructor.

Watch out for Hirelings. Many of them will not be entering into the ark with us.

2 Peter 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.




I believe that millions of devils have abandoned the New Age Movement and Satanist groups and have gone to church. In the 1970s and 80s I heard many accounts of New Age activity and was in battle with devils tormenting people who eventually were born again. And, our local church in California and Michigan was attacked directly by devils in certain people. Over recent years I have been hearing almost nothing about the New Age Movement, and One World mystics I had been watching have faded into obscurity.

I am 100% convinced, based on all the horrid tales or torture, mayhem, and aggravation directed at local church members by jackboot pastors, that many Fundamental pastors are not only unsaved-- they are possessed with devils and like it that way. I believe that at some point about 30 years ago, Satan started sending his imps to Bible College-- not Evangelical or Liberal colleges, but Satan sent his devils in young men who were unsaved to Fundamental Baptist colleges like Tennessee Temple, Bob Jones U, BIOLA, Hyles Anderson, etc. These men played the game and graduated and come highly recommended by the college. They get into local churches, and they go to work dumbing down the saints by avoiding exposition of the Word of God, while they roar and rage about "Baptist Standards" and tithing. They build numbers, become in demand, and rise to high places where they influence many other pastors. They are filthy in their personal lives, and they are brutes. They are Satan's helpers.

It is imperative that Bible believers, especially Christian fathers, examine the conduct, preaching, and testimony of pastors they sit under. If they do not measure up to the standard of the Apostle Paul, especially in First and Second Timothy and Titus, then these Bible believers MUST leave these churches. Find another fellowship, or start a house church. It is better to be alone by the brook Cherith eating a limited diet from the King James Bible than to be sitting in a large local church watching a Gospel bull fight and having your family brutalized and mentally molested by a devil possessed preacher.
