The Problem With Most Pastors Today
By David J. Stewart | June 2018
“Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden
my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.”
The problem with most pastors today is that they only entered into the ministry as an occupation, and not as a divine calling to uphold and proclaim the truth. That's it in a nut shell. Respectfully, the average lame-brain, knucklehead, pastor today is a nitwit! I say that kindly, but with all truthfulness. Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” 2nd Corinthians 11:6, “But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.”
I once had a friendly conversation with a young teacher who is employed by the Harvest Baptist Bible College on Guam in Micronesia. I shared the plan of salvation with him to see what he believed concerning salvation, because most people have been misled by the Devil. Sure enough, he was corrupted. I told him that the Holy Bible simply teaches admission of one's guilt as a sinner (Romans 3:19), and believing that Christ died on the cross for our sins, was buried, and resurrected after three days (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). He sadly replied, “I think there needs to be 'A LITTLE BIT MORE' than that!” I am convinced that that young man is not truly saved, because he thinks that to be saved he has to make an earnest attempt to stop sinning in his life. That is what John MacArthur teaches. Consequently, since the church's pastor of the past 18 years (a Bob Jones University graduate) is a devout follower of Dr. John MacArthur (also a BJU alumni), that's why he teaches his congregation that they must turn away from a lifestyle of sin to be saved (which I heard him say from the church pulpit on a Sunday morning with my own two ears in 2014, during the invitation). That is not the Gospel of free grace!
Also, Evangelist Ray Comfort teaches the same garbage theology. See for yourself, as Ray Comfort poisons this dear woman's mind on an airplane, hindering her from being saved. One of the associate pastors of Harvest Baptist Church (who is still employed there), told me in 2015 that he considers Ray Comfort, Paul Washer and John MacArthur all faithful men of God. Barf! Can you see and hear God vomiting Harvest out of His mouth? Revelation 3:15-16, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” I believe this Scripture is saying that God is so disgusted by apostate churches like Harvest Baptist Church, that He doesn't even want to mention their name. Why do pastors support this type of theological garbage? Mr. Comfort's ministry rakes in millions of dollars each year.
You see, many young men wrongfully go off to some rinky-dink Bible college to prepare for a profession, a mere occupation. That is what we have on Guam, from what I have seen, mere religious employees of Baptist churches! When I enrolled at Hyles-Anderson College in 1985 (and graduated in 1993), I had a fire burning in my soul for the things of God!!! I didn't care about getting an accredited degree. I wanted to learn what made Dr. Jack Hyles the great man that he is, and always will be!!! I actually listened to Brother Hyles when he preached. I was there while I was there! I have never made a penny from serving God (although it is not a sin to do so). It is not an occupation for me, it is my life and spiritual breath. I'd rather be dead than to sit idle and do nothing for the cause of Christ. I AM A VOICE!!!
Somebody needs to care and expose error, not dip our sails, beat around the bush, speaking a bunch of impotent rubbish like Dr. Ravi Zacharias (whom Harvest Baptist Church shamefully invited to speak and then honor in June of 2017). Unsaved hellbound Mormons love Ravi! What is wrong with preacher today? I'll tell you. Jesus said it in Luke 16:13, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” Harvest honors a false prophet like Ravi Zacharias, while mistreating and shunning a truth-teller like me away, banning me from returning! That is simply because the ministry is an occupation to all those pastors, and not a divine calling and duty to seek out and proclaim THE TRUTH, regardless of the outcome, persecution or consequences. A real man of God is willing to end up unemployed if that is what telling the truth brings. That is why I love and support pastor Steven L. Anderson of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona. I love the guy! I certainly don't agree with everything that he says (particularly his reprobate doctrine), but the guy has fire and guts, and we need some of that today in our church pulpits. How many pipsqueak pastors do you know today, with no gonads, who would NEVER risk losing their occupation over telling the truth? I tell you, that describes 99% of pastors today!!!
God is disgusted by this half-butt type of pseudo Christianity today, that uses, sells and tolerates umpteen Bible versions; and that promotes and tolerates the satanic heresy of Lordship Salvation. The Lordship Salvation crowd aren't even lukewarm, they are unsaved infidels!!! Harvest does some good in the community, but so also does Oprah Winfrey, who greatly helps Africa's poor! Jehovah's Witnesses do good deeds and help orphans. Some of the folks at Harvest are saved, but many are not. This is what happens when the Gospel is obscured by multiple conflicting Bible versions, which propagate multiple plans of salvation.
And I am tired of lousy pastors hiding behind “ethics” as an excuse not to expose satanic error, not to cry aloud against cults by name, and not to tell the truth without apology. One pathetic, spineless, jellyfish, poor excuse for a Baptist pastor (he's fortunate I don't mention his shameful name) on Guam called Harvest their church's “sister church.” SISTER IN WHOREDOM!!! You couldn't pay me to attend a dung-heap like that! What a wicked thing to bid Godspeed (making him partaker of their evil deeds) to Bible-corrupters and Calvinists, who promote John MacArthur's damnable heresies of limited atonement, predestination to salvation, and the perseverance of the saints (aka, Lordship Salvation). GET RIGHT WITH GOD YOU DEVIL-PREACHERS!!! Guam's Baptist churches are a cesspool of doctrinal iniquity, a stinking sewage flow of apostasy today. This rotting sewage is flowing out of Pensacola Christian College, Bob Jones University and Ambassador Bible College!
That same pathetic local Baptist pastor said to me, “You're not an apostle!” I am convinced he was envious of my boldness when I preach the Word of God, because he is timid and wimpy, lacking manhood. When I told him my sister died, he couldn't have cared less and said nothing. When I asked for his prayers, he sat there like an idiot and said nothing. He never offered to pray with me, never invited me into his office, never invited me to join their church, never commented on all the books and sermons I gave him to help him. He was just a first-class big jerk! I regularly, but infrequently, attended his church for almost two years. It must be “his” church because it certainly isn't God's church over there. That is because it is a mere job for him, an occupation, and he gets a check each month to play church. I'd rather die than live that way, parasiting off the work of God.
But getting back to his retarded comment about me not being an apostle. He feels that I have no right to express my opinions of apostasy in the churches today, because it is none of my business. Boy does he have a big hole in his head! So let's just let everything go to Hell in a hand-basket and say nothing, right? Then he started saying that I am outside the authority of the New Testament church, so only the opinions of people like him (butthead pastors) really matter. What a loser! I'd fire him in a second if I had the privilege. He is so wrong in his stupid thinking. The only different between the apostle Paul and any born-again man today is that God official gave His inspired words to Paul to write down; whereas we uphold and proclaim those inspired words still today. That is the only difference!
Any Christian man can speak for God, but he cannot pastor (lead) a church (which is an honored position) unless he meets certain qualifications. Albeit, just because a layman does not hold a position as a pastor, does not mean that his opinion doesn't matter, or that he should keep silent in the churches, or that he has no right to express his views. The authority of the Church is Jesus Christ, the Great Shepherd, and the Word of God. A pastor is an under-shepherd, who if he is doing his duty, teaches and preaches the Word of God.
Today's Baptist churches are like a mortally-diseased man, who refuses to receive medical treatment that will cure him. I have spent literally thousands and thousands of dollars in materials to help local churches, to feed them THE TRUTH, but they don't want it. The senior pastor of Harvest took offence when I gave him Dr. Al Lacy's beautiful book, “NIV: The Antichrist's Bible.” I was a friend to him, his staff and church, but they love error. Jeremiah 5:31, “The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?”
And I really couldn't care less what anybody thinks about my truthful Bible-preaching...
1st Corinthians 4:3, “But with me it is a very small thing that I should
be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.”
If you want to find a big sinner, look no further than me, I have never claimed to be a good Christian; but I do walk with God, and I am 100% sincere, and I do love the truth, and I am zealous over the things of God, especially THE TRUTH of GOD'S WORD! Psalms 119:139-141, “My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words. Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it. I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.”

“That payment that Christ made, He put it to your account... Do you realize the opportunity that God has given to us, to be able to 'GO INTO ALL THE WORLD.' And the thing that bothers people, is this thing about sin, because of the guilt that it brings, and all the wickedness that it brings; and you and I are the ONLY hope the people in this world—God has left us here and we are their only hope, if we don't explain the Gospel and make it clear!” —Pastor Ralph “Yankee” Arnold; a quote from his sermon, “A Study of Romans Chapter 10.”

“And brother, any time anybody ever casts any reflection upon the accuracy and the inspiration—verbal inspiration—of this Bible, I'll guarantee you he was inspired by the demons. I'll guarantee you! I don't care if he's got a 'reverend' in front of his name. I don't care if he has a clerical collar on. I don't care what school he's been to. He's of the Devil if he says that the Bible is not verbally inspired by God!” —Dr. Jack Hyles, a great quote from the awesome MP3 sermon titled, “Satan's masterpiece.”
BATTLE OF THE AGES (MP3 by Dr. Hyles, “The King James Bible crowd is going to come out on top!”)
“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.” ―Elie Wiesel
I am appalled at the indifference amongst professed Christians today concerning the corrupting of God's Word. They just don't care which Bible is God's Word. I'm talking about thousands of shameful apostate religious colleges today, that are INDIFFERENT toward the hundreds of perverted English Bibles, all of which are the Devil's way of depriving people of the true and pure Word of God. Consequently, there are many false plans of salvations being taught in the churches today, mainly the heresy of manmade repentance, aka, Lordship Salvation. Here is a truthful quote from Pastor Jack Hyles...
“God has a
special rebuke, again and again and again in the Bible,
toward those people who keep their neutrality in the work of God!”
