Harvest Baptist Church On
Ought Not Be Saying These Things!
By David J. Stewart | January 2021
Matthew 7:19-20, “Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” 1st John 4:1, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” Titus 1:13, “This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.” Titus 2:1-2, “ But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.” Acts 15:1 and 24, “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. ...Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:”
According to the preceding Scripture passages, a teacher's “fruit” is their doctrine. Please notice that Titus 1:14 warns MEN'S COMMANDMENTS TURN PEOPLE FROM THE TRUTH!!! The Harvest Baptist Church on Guam ought not be saying these heretical things:
- That you must turn from sin to be saved.
- That Lordship Salvation is the Gospel.
- That there is more than one English Bible version
- That the King James Bible is not infallible and inspired
- That God's Words have been preserved in umpteen Bible revisions
- That Pastor John MacArthur is a saved man
- That Dr. John MacArthur preaches the Gospel
- That people should listen to John MacArthur's Bible teachings
- That Bob Jones University preaches the Gospel
- That Bob Jones University is a good place to attend Bible college
- That Evangelist Ray Comfort is a man of God.
- That Pastor Paul Washer is a man of God.
- That Dr. John MacArthur is a man of God.
- That Dr. Steve Pettit is a saved man
- That Dr. Steve Pettit is a man of God
- That people should listen to Dr. Steve Pettit's Bible teachings
- That people should listen to 'The Daily Platform' chapel of Bob Jones University
- That Martin Luther was a born-again Christian
- That Pastor Jack Hyles is “a cult”
- That I ought not say these true things about Harvest Baptist Church of Guam
- That I cannot come back to church, even though I humbly promised to stay quiet
I have been refuting HBC since 2014 for saying these evil things, earnestly contending for the Christian faith (Jude 1:3). Bless God, I SHOULD say these things about Harvest Baptist Church of Guam, and by God's grace I will continue to say them until their wicked pastors and congregation repent and get right with God. Harvest Baptist Church of Guam have abandoned their love for Christ in pursuit of the love of money (1st Timothy 6:10). They are serving mammon and not God (Luke 16:13). Revelation 2:4, “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.” The inspired Word of God is against Harvest's pastors and indoctrinated congregation for perverting the Gospel (aka., Lordship Salvation), and for promoting the Devil's corrupt seed (i.e., the modern Bible revisions). Revelation 2:16, “Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.”
I believe God led me to Harvest Baptist Church on Guam in 2013, to preach against them for their apostasy, but they are stiffnecked and proud. Revelation 2:21, “And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.” The Bob Jones University crowd for decades now have fornicated in spiritual whoredom with the heathen Neo-evangelical world. The Harvest Baptist Academy school on Guam, Bible college and Harvest ministries, are bad news! If you want to be spiritually corrupted, then you'll get what you deserve for eating at the Devil's table. Lordship Salvation is of the Devil. Harvest's pastors and staff OUGHT NOT be saying such things! They ought not be promoting Bob Jones University—because they promote Devil's Bibles, allow immodest clothing for female students, preach the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation (i.e., Calvinism), and just don't care! Right doctrine matters!
How Calvinism Infects The Gospel
(a helpful sermon by Pastor Ralph 'Yankee' Arnold)
Their Gospel Is Not Our Gospel
Galatians 1:6-7, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.” Their gospel is not our Gospel. They add turning from sins to faith, perverting grace. They errantly redefine repentance to mean “turn away from your sins,” which is not what the word “repent” means in the Bible. Repentance is a change of mind, not a change of lifestyle, nor is it a change of mind that leads to a change of lifestyle. The Devil is a beautiful liar!
A changed life is the “fruit” of the indwelling Holy Spirit (Ephesians 5:22-24), which is produced in the life of a believer who CHOOSES to walk in the Spirit (Ephesians 5:25). Many saints do not make the right choice (1st Corinthians 3:15), and they instead choose to walk in the flesh and dwell in a lifestyle of sin (as did Lot, Samson, Demas and other dear saints of God in the Bible). Eternal life is a free gift, that you simply receive by faith in Jesus Christ. There is no obligation to turn from your sins, nor even be willing to turn from your sins, to be saved. If it were so, then God would owe someone salvation, because it would be by works. Romans 4:4, “Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.” For those of you who trust in the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation, you can sing: “I owe, I owe, it's off to Hell I go!” I assure you friend, on the authority of God's Word, that you won't go to Heaven if “turning from your sins” is part of your hope for eternal life (Matthew 7:21-23).
Their Bible Is Not Our Bible
Matthew 4:4, “But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Their Bible is not our Bible. God authored ONE BOOK, not two. And if not two, He certainly didn't author 900 (which is how many English Bibles there are (in whole or part) according to the American Bible Society). Is it any better to rob one bank than two, or thirty? Of course not, theft is theft! Obviously there are quantities of evil, but evil is evil, no matter how seemingly small. Therefore, whether Bob Jones University sanctions two different Bibles, or a hundred different Bibles, it is still evil.
I said that because it would be much more obvious how wrong BJU and churches like Harvest Baptist Church on Guam are, if they sold and promoted 339 Bibles. But since they sell, use and promote just a small handful instead, the problem doesn't seem so bad. Dear reader, even having TWO Bible versions is a nightmare, because now you have TWO AUTHORITIES pitched against each other. That is what the serpent subtly did in Genesis 3:1—he came to Eve and gave her a new version of God's Word, which totally contradicted what God had actually said. Whereas God said in Genesis 2:16-17 that they COULD eat of all the trees, save one; the serpent quoted God as saying they COULDN'T eat of any of the trees. The Devil is a liar (John 8:44).
If the Devil had offered 200 new Bible versions in 1881 to the churches, they would have adamantly rejected all of them! But the Devil has published a new Bible here and there for the past 140 years. So by incrementally corrupting the truth, the religious world has gone along without even realizing Satan has deceived them. There are so many English Bible versions today, that anyone who desires to publish a new version has to get nutty! That is why the newly released 2020 “Literal Standard Version” (LSV) says in Matthew 7:14 that the way unto life is “compressed” instead of “strait.” What will the next version say, that the way unto life is “sandwiched”? By endorsing the demonic English Standard Version (ESV), which is 100% Westcott and Hort garbage, Bob Jones University and their alumni are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. BJU will NEVER speak one critical word against the Devil's Bibles, because they are in bed with the Devil, spiritually fornicating with him.
Harvest Baptist Church Of Guam Ought Not Be Saying These Things
Titus 1:10-13 says to “REBUKE THEM SHARPLY,” that they might be sound in the faith. Paul said that to Titus, who was not an apostle. God says that to you and me too. We are commanded by God to sharply rebuke false teachers. ...
Titus 1:10-14, “For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.”
Harvest and BJU ought not be teaching these things! They ought not be teaching the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation. They ought not bid Godspeed to Dr. Steve Pettit and Pastor John MacArthur, who pervert the Gospel of free grace. There are not two gospels friend. You either must turn away from sinful behavior to be saved, or else you do not; but it cannot be both. The fact that theologians have been wrangling over this matter for centuries doesn't justify both plans of salvation. Both may be incorrect, but both cannot be correct! If Pastor Curtis Hutson is correct, then Dr. John MacArthur is going to Hell someday. If Dr. John MacArthur is correct, then Pastor Curtis Hutson will spend eternity in Hell. Both men cannot be correct, because they preach two VERY DIFFERENT plans of salvation.
Kindly said, Harvest Baptist Church on Guam allows both plans, but officially preaches Lordship Salvation. They banned me from returning (since 2014) to even attend church services, simply because as a true friend I tried to help them SEE THE TRUTH. Their ungodly pastors don't want THE TRUTH (Hosea 4:6). I gave them Evangelist Michael P. Bowen's excellent helpful book: “I NEVER KNEW YOU,” which they rejected because it greatly offended them. The truth offended them! The book exposes Evangelist Ray Comfort as a deadly wolf in sheep's clothing, along with wolves in the pulpit like: Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, Jimmy Swaggart, Billy Graham, Charles Stanley and Beth Moore. Sadly, the Bob Jones' camp have much blood on their hands, Pastor Ralph "Yankee" Arnold is 100% right!
It is tragic and a crying shame that independent Baptist churches these days are becoming corrupted by the hour. Lordship Salvation is a perversion of the Gospel. When anyone attacks the grace of God, they are attacking the God of grace! It is a big deal. The love of money has infected most Bible colleges and churches today, so much so that the truth just doesn't matter to them anymore. They've become indifferent. To make more money, these shallow Neo-evangelicals refuse to stand for anything that is controversial, avoiding anything that will bring them reproach for the name of Christ. Neo-evangelicals absolutely refuse to be outside the gate with Jesus. So as cowards they merely dip their sails in sinful compromise and go along to get along with their ecclesiastical peers. The whole sum of them amounts to zero for God, because they preach a false gospel of partial faith in Christ plus works. Such a diabolical heresy cannot produce the new birth in Christ Jesus. I speak the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15).
God knows that I love the folks at Harvest Baptist Church of Guam very much. I pray for their pastors and staff to get right with God. The Bob Jones University crowd have turned apostate! They are no longer a Christian Fundamentalist institution (as Dr. Bob Jones III himself admitted in 2001). Harvest has been my church family since 2013, whether they like it or not, even though they continue to reject and ostracize me. I have offered many times to make peace with Harvest Baptist Church on Guam since 2017, if they'd simply in love allow me to attend the churches services, so I can be a part of their church family, and hopefully find a wife. Is that such a bad thing? But they continue to refuse. It is a shame that the Bob Jones' crowd are so cliquish. If you don't dot your i's and cross your t's exactly as they do—you're on the outside looking in! They are the one's who choose not to accept me, not me them. I have begged since 2017 to come back to church, but they hate me (Galatians 4:16). I won't stop preaching against Bob Jones University. Harvest is the tail of the dog, but BJU is the deadly head of Medusa!
Sadly, they are subverted of themselves and are calloused toward THE TRUTH. Galatians 4:16-17, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them.” Just as false teachers were zealously affecting the churches of Galatia, so also is Bob Jones University today zealously affecting thousands of students and hundreds of churches, BUT NOT WELL. BJU promotes Devil's Bibles. BJU preaches a Devil's gospel of Lordship Salvation. BJU is a prisonhouse of religion!!!
The churches of Galatia counted Paul as their enemy, simply because he loved them enough to tell them THE TRUTH. Sadly, they didn't believe him, just as Harvest refuses to believe the truth I have shared with them. God authored ONE BOOK, not two. We have that infallible book today in the inspired King James Bible. God made ONE PROMISE of salvation, which is to those who believe the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ crucified on the cross, buried and bodily risen the third day. Lordship Salvation is a perversion of grace. Lordship Salvation says faith alone is not enough; but that, you must also turn away from your sinful life, commit to live for Christ, follow Jesus as “Lord” (Master) no matter what the cost, and exchange all that you are for all that He is. Those are all works, not free grace!
They just don't care, neither about the purity of God's Word, nor the accuracy of the Gospel, nor about hurting people like me who pleaded three times in 2017 (and since) for their love, kindness and spiritual help. Sadly, it appears that the pastors of Harvest need a whole lot more spiritual help than I do. My office is open 24 hours a day fellas, just knock on my door. I'll do my best to help you get right with God. We'll kneel by my barbeque and ask God to forgive Harvest Baptist Church for abandoning their first love long ago.
Humbly said, I am the best friend the Bob Jones' crowd have today, which they will someday find out in eternity, at which time my preaching will be vindicated. Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.” The King James Bible crowd are going to come out on top! The Free Grace Theology crowd are going to come out on top!

Truth + Half Truth = a Lie
