The Sin Of Stealing Gods Word From People
By David J. Stewart | August 2020
Jeremiah 23:29-32, “Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour. Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith. Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.”
There is not a better passage of Scripture to describe what is going on today in the world, especially in America, than our text passage from Jeremiah 23:29-32. The Lord was against THE PREACHERS (the prophets) because they had robbed the people of their faith! The preachers had stolen God's Words from the people's hearts. God was upset at the preachers because they made light of the truth (“by their lightness,” verse 32). It wasn't a big deal to them! It is a wicked sin to make light of the inspired Word of God and the Gospel. Bob Jones University (BJU) make light of the inspiration of God's Word...
“Bob Jones... they make light on the verbal inspiration!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “The Real Battle”
Bob Jones University make light of truth. They have robbed the people of their faith. Way back in 1944, Dr. Bob Jones Sr. (1883-1968) warned his students about infidels who would someday in the future creep into their institution, preaching another gospel and robbing the people of their faith. Evangelist Bob Jones Sr. made the following courageous, unapologetic, uncompromising and fundamentalist defense of salvation by faith alone. In fact, Dr. Bob Jones Sr. said he would blow his college to smithereens if he could, when they let infidels like Dr. Steve Pettit into their midst:
“He [Jude] said, well it was 'needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith, which once for all [was] delivered unto the saints.'
Now wait a minute, you've got something worth contending for! Isn't it strange that something so valuable and so wonderful as saving faith is something we that have to be exhorted to contend for? Why, if you had a diamond worth $5,000 you wouldn't leave it just lying around anywhere. If you had $1,000,000 in gold, you'd go put it in a vault. [If] Anybody tried to get it, you'd fight to keep them from gettin' it. And we just sit down and just let people steal the faith that Christians have, and never bother about it. Some of us pay 'em to do that! Some of us pay preachers to stand in the pulpit and steal the faith of the saints of God, and send our children to Hell. The most crooked crook on God Almighty's earth is a preacher who stands in a Trinitarian pulpit, and steals the faith of people!
You know I've said it many a time; if I was up in Heaven, fifty years from now (and the Lord tarried), and any religious liberal ever sat in a classroom in this institution, and tried to disseminate his infidelity, I'd ask God Almighty to excuse me for a little while, and I'd come back down to this school and get a stick of dynamite, and I'd blow it into smithereens! I'd rather see this school a heap of rubbish, just a little rubbish here and a little rubbish yonder, than see the time ever come we could be such softies, we'll sit down and let the Devil put his modernists and religious liberals in here to rob them of the faith. And yet that things going on in America, from one end of this country to the other!” [emphasis added] —Dr. Bob Jones Sr.; YouTube | MP4 | MP3
As you just read, Dr. Bob Jones Sr. said he would rather destroy Bob Jones University, than to let modernists and religious liberals corrupt one student with infidelity that robs them of their faith! Professed Christians nowadays are so deceived by the Devil, so deceived that they even pay infidels to destroy the faith of young people in the Word of God, and shake their faith in the Gospel of free grace! Bob Jones University sells, sanctions and uses multiple Bible revisions! They sanction the Devil's corrupt Alexandrian manuscripts! BJU horribly betrays the inspired Word of God. Sadly, Bob Jones University has been going downhill in spiritual deterioration for decades, hobnobbing with ungodly neo-evangelicals. Consequently, they've been infected with ecumenism, Lordship Salvation, Calvinism, John MacArthur and corruptible seed at BJU!
Read in horror what Dr. Steve Pettit (president of Bob Jones University since 2014) heretically said to thousands of students on January 26, 2015 in chapel:
“You can't just speak about getting saved, and you accepted Christ, and then that's it! There is a justification; There is a sanctification; There's ultimately a glorification, and though there are three parts, they are all part of the whole, and you cannot separate them. In order for you to qualify for the award, you have to get into the race, you have to stay in the race, and you have to finish the race. If you want to win, you have to run to the end; and winning in the Christian life is everything, because if you lose—if you don't finish—you lose everything—you lose your SOUL. And so, the Christian race is the life of faith that begins, is run, and is finished when we cross over into Heaven!” [emphasis added] —Dr. Steve Pettit (“What Does It Mean To Run 'The Race'?” - 11:34)
Dr. Pettit says THAT REWARD is HEAVEN ITSELF:
“We run the race, we cross the finish line, and so what’s the prize? What is the award? Well, there are different viewpoints. Some would have the viewpoint that the awards are crowns in Heaven. But as I read the book of Hebrews and see the whole gist of the book and the flow of the book, I don’t believe its referring to crowns in Heaven. I think it is referring to Heaven itself.” [emphasis added] —Dr. Steve Pettit (“What Does It Mean To Run 'The Race'?” - 22:57)
So according to Mr. Pettit, to “qualify” for the “award” of “Heave itself,” you must faithfully put forth the effort to “run the race” until life's end. Pettit says you must “finish the race” to obtain Heaven. That is another gospel. Kindly said, Dr. Steve Pettit is a wolf in sheep's clothing, who preaches another gospel of partial faith in Christ plus works. Dr. Pettit preaches the SAME damnable counterfeit plan of salvation as Dr. John MacArthur. Pastor Max D. Younce made this incredibly true observation about today's apostate Bible colleges, with which I 100% agree:
“Most of these exegeters execute the book!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “The Real Battle”
“All that God has ever done is through His Word.” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “The Real Battle”
“When you're against the Book, you're against God!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “The Real Battle”
“We don't have the Bible colleges we used to have, so you're not going to have the preachers you used to have!” —Pastor Max Younce; “Bible Prophecy #6”
Today's Bible colleges are spiritually corrupt. They are wrong on the Bible. BJU promotes multiple Bible perversions, pulling on the same rope as the Devil. BJU are preaching the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation, demanding that people “turn from sins” to receive God's free gift of eternal life. That is a false gospel!!! Bob Jones University (BJU), Dr. Steve Pettit, BJU alumni, Marty Herron, Sam Horn, John MacArthur, and their former students (like John MacArthur), are STEALING GOD'S WORDS FROM THE PEOPLE!!! Jeremiah 23:29-30, “Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.” God's Words are in the inspired King James Bible! All other modern Bible revisions are Devil's Bibles!!!
“I wouldn't give you a dime for King James Bible defenders that don't propagate the King James Bible! The reason to defend it—it's our weapon!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, “The Real Battle”
God only authored ONE BOOK! The man with two watches never knows what time it is! God is not the God of confusion (1st Corinthians 14:33). Having more than one Bible is confusion! Satan has always hated the Word of God. Even Dr. Christopher Lane, a secular English professor and intellectuals historian, sees the dangers of the modern Bible revisions! Why cannot Bible colleges and pastors? Even communist Cuba, sees the dangers of the Devil's Bible revisions. So why cannot America's stupid Bible college professors and pastors of churches? It is because America's Bible colleges are sinfully proud, arrogant, set in their crooked ways, apostate, stiff-necked, and deceived by the Devil. Thousands of corrupted churches worldwide have succumbed to the apostasy of America's damned Bible colleges. God's curse is upon anyone who messes with grace! When anyone attacks the grace of God, they are attacking the God, gift, guardian and goal of grace (Galatians 1:6-9).
Ye Might Bear Well With Them
I am so sick and tired of religious phonies like Pastor John MacArthur, Dr. Steve Pettit, Sam Horn, Marty Herron, Paul Washer, and Ray Comfort, who corrupt churches like Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, ruining people's lives and getting paid 6-digit lucrative salaries by parasiting off of Christendom!!! Their day of reckoning before almighty God is soon coming! The Lord will not be mocked. Galatians 6:7, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” The Apostle Paul spoke those words of warning, in the very context of a church allowing a false gospel into their midst. Kindly said, why does Bob Jones University tolerate Dr. Steve Pettit? 2nd Corinthians 11:4, “For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.” YE MIGHT WELL BEAR WITH HIM!!!
By the way, I blended the two photos at the right with a fantastic totally free program called: GIMP. I was able to align the wolf's eye with Dr. Pettit's eye. I love Dr. Pettit. God knows my heart. I cried in 2014 when he preached on “Wisdom” at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam. I looked up to Pastor Herron as a friend. Sadly, I came to learn that these men are charlatans of the faith, merely making a living, and anyone outside of their neo-evangelical Bob Jones clique is rejected, as I was. God will deal with them treacherously, as they have dealt with me. You cannot go against THE TRUTH and win. I am on the right side of truth, they are the enemies of the Lord Jesus Christ! These ungodly men preach the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation, saying that God will not save you unless you first commit to turn away from living a life of sin. They get this garbage theology from the Devil's Bible revisions, which pervert the meaning of repent. Here's a classic example, of Mark 1:15 being corrupted, from the Easy-To-Read Version (ERV) that Pastor Marty Herron led the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam to use, sell and bid Godspeed to. Shame on them all.
God's judgment rests upon their heads, for corrupting the Gospel and for STEALING the Word of God from the people! Jeremiah 23:30, “Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.” Today's preachers likewise have stolen God's Words from the people, by bidding Godspeed to the Devil's corrupt Bible revisions. Today's preachers likewise have stolen God's Words from the people, by preaching another gospel which requires giving up your sinful habits, as a trade or exchange of sorts. In fact, John MacArthur even uses the word “exchange” concerning salvation. Dear friend, the free gift of eternal life which God offers to you is not an exchange, it is a gift that you simply accept by faith.
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.” Oh how the churches need to get back to basics! Oh how professed Christians need a revival of the fundamentals of the Christian faith. We need to get back to salvation by faith alone in Jesus, which Dr. Bob Jones Sr. (1883-1968) faithfully taught to his students in 1944. We need to get back to using only ONE BIBLE, the inspired King James Bible. The King James is not a “version,” it is the verbally (word for word) and plenary (in its entirety) inspired Word of almighty God!!!
Kindly said, why does Faith Baptist Bible College And Theological Seminary Tolerate Dr. Marty Herron? It's because they have all been corrupted by Lordship Salvation!!! Calvinism is of the Devil. Why did the First Baptist Church of Hammond tolerate Dr. Jack Schaap in 2008, when he denied the inspiration of the King James Bible, and made a bunch of church members go home crying and confused? It's is because people by nature go along to get along with their leaders, and we are not objective by nature. I have learned to be objective, which you need to learn too! Learn to question everything. That is 100% Biblical. 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.” Every human being is a spirit! We are not a body with a spirit, we are a spirit with a body. When the body dies, the spirit lives on and returns to God (Ecclesiastes 12:7).
From the very beginning in the Garden of Eden Satan tried to cast doubt upon the inspired Word of God. The serpent said to Eve in Genesis 3:1a, “YEA, HATH GOD SAID?” The plethora of modern Bible versions has generated massive confusion in the churches. Pastor M.R. DeHaan (1891-1965) wisely said:
“Be on guard against any tampering with the Word, whether disguised as a search for truth, or a scholarly attempt at apparently hidden meanings; and beware of the confusion created by the senseless rash of new versions, translations, editions, and improvements upon the tried and tested Bible of our fathers and grandfathers.” [emphasis added] —Dr. M.R. DeHaan, from the excellent book, 'THE TABERNACLE,' p. 101
What is wrong with Bob Jones University, Moody Bible Institute, Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, and thousands of other religious institutions today, who all promote MULTIPLE Bible versions? Some false prophets are so sweet, that sugar wouldn't even melt in their mouth! Pastor DeHaan went to Heaven in 1965. That means he made the preceding quote before 1965. Wicked people were already messing with the Holy Bible back then. The Lord said in Jeremiah 23:30 that He was against the prophets for STEALING God's Words from the people!!! As I quoted to you, Dr. Bob Jones Sr. warned about infidels who would infiltrate Bob Jones College, and ROB THE SAINTS OF THEIR FAITH!!!
Woe unto thieves in the pulpit today! Woe unto Hyles-Anderson College for denying the inspiration of the King James Bible since 2008! Pastor Jack Hyles was 100% right about the King James Bible, who proclaimed that it is 100% verbally inspired by God!!! BJU gets it very wrong, betraying God's Word! Oh how we need a revival in our churches today. Oh how we need to stop sending our young people to these dead, apostate, dried-up, deeper-life, entertainment oriented, neo-evangelical, yuppie, money-hungry Bible colleges, like Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary (Cemetery) in Iowa! I wouldn't give you a dime for Moody Bible Institute today, who profess that they are now Calvinists!
John Calvin (1509-1564) was an unsaved heretic, who is not in Heaven today, who preached a false gospel. By the way, I encourage all my blog readers to freely copy and paste my writings to your own blogs and websites. You don't need to get my permission, I am giving it to you now. I want you to use all my stuff, and I would be honored. You can even put your name on it instead. No credit needs to be given to me. God knows my humble labors for Jesus Christ. I just want THE TRUTH to get out to as many people as possible. I don't want to do like neo-evangelicals today, who steal God's Words from their neighbours, I want to PREACH THE WORD!!! I don't want to steal your faith, I want to strengthen your faith in the Gospel of free grace! When anyone attacks the grace of God, they are attacking the God of grace!!!
Dear friend, if you go to Hell, it will only be your fault. Jesus Christ has already paid for your sins in full on the cross. Jesus came from Heaven to earth to make that payment on the cross for you, so that you would never hear those terrifying words: “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:23). Christ says: “I love you. I died on the cross to pay your debt of sin. I suffered so you wouldn't have to in Hell forever!” And the blessed Savior then says: “If you'll simply come as a needy sinner, and place your confidence in me alone, your sins will be immediately forgiven and erased forever, and I will give you the gift of eternal life!” It's that simple to be saved. Jesus paid a debt He did not owe, because we owed a debt we could not pay. He died on the cross for your sins and mine, was buried, and three days later He physically resurrected in His glorified body (1st Corinthians 15:1-4).
The Bible says in Jeremiah 23:30 that God was against the preachers, just as He is against the neo-evangelical crowd today, for stealing God's Word from the people. That is exactly what Bob Jones University is doing by promoting corruptible seed! That is exactly what the First Baptist Church of Hammond and their Hyles-Anderson College are doing by denying the inspiration of the King James Bible! That is exactly what the Devil's Bible revisions are doing—robbing the people of the inspired Word of God almighty!!! People have a right to have the Word of God. Men have no right to STEAL God's Words from their neighbours!!!

Romans 16:17-18, “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”
