Bob Jones University Is So Far Gone Today
By David J. Stewart | December 2020
Jeremiah 6:16, “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.” Hebrews 3:13, “But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.”
There is not a more reprobate, wicked, ungodly, arrogant and shameful institution in the world today than Bob Jones University in South Carolina. A godly man named Dr. Bob Jones Sr. long ago founded the college in 1927, with the intent of raising up a generation of Biblically narrow-minded young people to stand faithful for the old-time Christian faith, to be a peculiar people zealous of good works, and a citadel of truth...
“Bob Jones College, I told you, stands for the narrow road. We don't stand for the broad road. We don't stand for what is stood for in most educational institutions. We stand without apology for the old-time Christian philosophy of self-control and self-restraint. This institution is operating in its seventeenth year. All these years we have gathered around an idea: The Bible is the Word of God. Jesus is the Son of God. He died on the cross to save us. We are saved by faith in Him. We stand for 'honest-to-goodness' hard work. We stand for honest study. We stand for modesty and virtue for girls and for honesty and uprightness and purity for boys. We stand for the old decencies, the old traditions. The college started off like that. It stands for those things still. We don't apologize to Mr. Anybody for it. And great prosperity, in spite of bitter opposition, has come to Bob Jones College because of the things for which it stands.” —Dr. Bob Jones Sr., “Things I Have Learned: Chapel Talks,” page 75-76; Bob Jones University Press, ©1945
Bob Jones University has gone downhill so fast over the past couple decades. Look at the following immodest clothing that females at BJU are wearing today. You can see the crack in their buttocks! ...

ABOVE PHOTO: Perhaps you think I have a dirty mind. No, I have a man's mind. All I see is the middle of her buttocks! I am a normal man. I am not gay. I like what I see. Now, it is a sin for me to lust upon her (1st Peter 2:11; Matthew 5:28). But if she dresses in such manner, intentionally revealing her gluteus cracksimous, is she not also sinning by dressing immodestly? You had better know that she is! (1st Timothy 2:9; 1st Peter 2:11; Deuteronomy 22:5; Proverbs 7:10; Matthew 5:28). In fact, she is the worst sinner, because she is promoting the lusts of the flesh!!!
Ladies, you never know what a man is thinking! Whereas most men will lust in their mind (as normal carnal men do), and a small percentage of godly men will choose to please God by “bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (2nd Corinthians 10:5), God only know what an ungodly man might do! Ladies, conceal don't reveal. It is shameful what Bob Jones University has become nowadays. Do you know where I found the above photo? I got it from BJU's Facebook page. Shame on them! We've gotten lax folks! Hebrews 3:13, “But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.”
“You cannot make God cool, hip, and acceptable to the world.” —Brother Danny Castle
Bob Jones University (BJU) needs an old fashioned revival today. You cannot make God cool and hip and acceptable to the heathen world folks. Sadly, that is why in an attempt to increase their student enrollment.
Cursed Is The Man Or Angel Who Preaches Another Gospel
Let's move on to a much more serious matter—the Gospel. BJU at some point after Dr. Bob Jones Sr. (1883-1968) died went to the Devil theologically, accepting Lordship Salvation.
Sadly, to increase their student enrollment, BJU has dipped their sails, compromised their moral standards, adopted Lordship Salvation, and embraced the Devil's Bible versions.
Galatians 1:6-8, 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. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”
Dr. Bob Jones Sr. believed and preached a Free Grace Gospel...
“God gives you eternal life when you take Him. Eternal life is wrapped up in Christ. 'He that hath the Son hath life.' There is just one difference between a Christian and a sinner. A Christian has Christ and a sinner does not have Him. That is the only difference. All you need is Jesus. It is all in Jesus! If you will take Him, He will blot out all your sins. If you take Him, He will give you a new nature. If you take Him, He will go with you along the journey of life. He will be with you when you are tempted. He will put arms of power around you and give you the victory. 'By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; not of works, lest any man should boast.” —Dr. Bob Jones Sr., “Things I Have Learned: Chapel Talks,” page 223; Bob Jones University Press, ©1945
Tragically, the new President of BJU, Dr. Steve Pettit, preaches another gospel of Calvinism (aka, Lordship Salvation)...
“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!” —Dr. Steve Pettit (“What Does It Mean To Run 'The Race'?” - 11:34)
The preceding men preach two VERY DIFFERENT plans of salvation. The former is the Gospel of free grace through faith alone, the latter is the damnable heresy of Calvinism (commonly known today as, Lordship Salvation). I made these intriguing pictures today. Truly a picture is worth 1,000 words! ...
One of my favorite Bible preachers is Dr. Harry A. Ironside (1876-1951). Consider the following beautiful quote by Pastor Ironside...
“The Gospel is not a call to repentance, or to amendment of our ways, to make restitution for past sins, or to promise to do better in the future. These things are proper in their place, but they do not constitute the Gospel; for the Gospel is not good advice to be obeyed, it is good news to be believed. Do not make the mistake then of thinking that the Gospel is a call to duty or a call to reformation, a call to better your condition, to behave yourself in a more perfect way than you have been doing in the past …
Nor is the Gospel a demand that you give up the world, that you give up your sins, that you break off bad habits, and try to cultivate good ones. You may do all these things, and yet never believe the Gospel and consequently never be saved at all.”

Dear friend, I love you. I love the folks at the Harvest Baptist Church of Guam. They are dear to me. They are my church family, even though they continue to reject and ostracize me. They are the Bob Jones' crowd. I still don't think they have figured it out yet. All these years I have been preaching against them, simply because I am one of them. Although Pastor Marty Herron wrongly drove me out of the church in 2014, because I befriended their church with THE TRUTH, they couldn't get rid of me that easily. They made my body leave, but my heart is still there, and will be until I move away from Guam, Lord willing. I wish they could see my heart.
Read what Dr. Ironside said in his Gospel tract, “ANOTHER GOSPEL?” ...
"When anyone comes promising salvation to those ‘who make full surrender' of all that they have to God, and who 'pay the price of full salvation' he is preaching another gospel, for the price was paid on Calvary's cross and the work that saves is finished. It was Christ Jesus who made the full surrender when He yielded His life on Calvary that saves us, not our surrender in any way to Him."

My ministry writings intimidate some people a bit, since I am bold to assert myself, but I am a gentle and sweet person. I get emotional sometimes in my writings, which is why I love music and stringed musical instruments so much (to express myself), but I am a loving man. God knows I have prayed for Harvest regularly for the past 6 years. When you invest in people, you love them. Matthew 6:21, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
In order to understand my hurting mindset, you'd need to understand my inexplicable pain from betrayal, an unwanted divorce in 2006, weakness of spirit, abandonment, massive financial loss, losing my home, rejection by the Bob Jones University crowd at the Harvest Baptist Church of Guam since 2014, and my utter loneliness without a wife or church family. The Apostle Paul said that when he was weak, Christ was strong through his weakness. So I rejoice in my afflictions, knowing that God is using my suffering and weakness to help others find THE TRUTH, and encouraging others who are also lonely and suffering...
2nd Corinthians 12:7-10, “And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”
Likewise, I have suffered from a thorn in the flesh since 2004, having an old neck injury which causes me constant chronic toothache-like pain (in the bony area in back). It makes finding a wife difficult. Oh, how so much I desire to have a companion to share my remaining life with! I pray for God to help me find a wife soon. I am planning on leaving Guam, so I can sign up for Match.com, attend a bigger church, and hopefully meet a Christian lady. Some people like being alone, but I hate it with all my heart. Yet, I know Jesus is always with me (Hebrews 13:5). God is so good!
The Modern Bible Revisions Are A Spiritual Crime Scene
Proverbs 30:5-6, “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.”
God only authored ONE HOLY BOOK, not two, not 456, not 900. There was no problem when God instructed Adam and Eve exactly what to do, and not do, in Genesis 2:16-17. God said they COULD eat of all the trees in the Garden of Eden, except one, the Tree of Knowledge. But then the subtle serpent came along in Genesis 3:1, introducing a SECOND AUTHORITY. The serpent literally changed the Word of God. The serpent asked if God said they COULDN'T eat from any of the trees in the garden. God never said that! Go examine these two passages of Scripture, and you'll quickly see how Satan corrupted God's Words. The serpent gave Eve the first Devil's Bible!
Fast forward to the year 1881. This was the year that two ungodly Anglican ministers, named Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort, introduced a SECOND AUTHORITY to the world. Their work titled, “The New Testament In The Original Greek,” was later well received by the Jehovah's Witness cult, since the text brutally attacks the deity of Jesus in hundreds of places (JW's deny Jesus' deity). And in 1906 Rudolf Kittel, well connected with the Nazi's, introduced a new Hebrew Bible to the world. It is upon these corrupt texts that today's modern perverted Bible revisions are all based. Here is a very helpful chart comparing the origin of the modern Bible revisions. In this chart you can clearly see the two primary origins of all of today's Bibles. Dear friend, all you need to do is consider the FACT that God only authored ONE BOOK, and you should immediately see a big problem.
There is nothing in this world any more important than the infallibility of God's Word. It is absolutely tragic that today's Bible colleges are the worst offenders! You'd think that the one place in this world where a young person would have their faith strengthened in the Word of God would be in a Bible college. But that is not so! In fact, Bible college is the one place where you are guaranteed to have your faith shaken in the Word of God today. If you don't believe me, I triple dog dare you to go look at any Bible college's Statement of Faith on the Bible. You will sadly find something that says the Word of God was only inspired in the originals. Here's an example, from the Statement of Faith of Faith Baptist Bible College And Theological Seminary in Ankeny, Iowa...
“We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration by God of the original manuscripts of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, and that they are inerrant and infallible in all matters.”
That is shameful and tragic. Go look at Bob Jones University, Moody Bible Institute, Liberty University, Master's University, and hundreds of other Neo-evangelical Bible colleges today, and you'll find the same junk theology! What kind of Bible college denies that we have an inspired and infallible Bible today? Please beware of any Bible institution which denies that we have an inspired and infallible Bible today! Beware of any corrupt institution that says only the ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPTS were inspired, because we don't have any of those original manuscripts today. Jesus said in John 10:35b that, “THE SCRIPTURE CANNOT BE BROKEN.” If only the originals were inspired, and somewhere along the way they became corrupted and imperfect during translation, then THE SCRIPTURE HAS BEEN BROKEN, and Jesus is a liar! Do you think Jesus lied? If not, then you must believe as I do, that “THE SCRIPTURE CANNOT BE BROKEN.”
There is a direct correlation between the lie of Lordship Salvation and the Devil modern Bibles!
You can get upset with me if you want, but somebody needs to say it! We've slacked off in our Fundamentalist circles today. We're all guilty! I pick on the Bob Jones University camp for a few reasons. One reason is because I love them, and they are my family at Harvest Baptist Church of Guam. They kicked me out in 2014, and despite my humble apologies and pleas for their love and help since 2017, they won't even allow me to come back to attend church, so this is personal in that sense. You can't just kick people out of your church, when they are humbly begging for a second chance. Everyone needs a church family. There are no perfect churches, and I'm sure not a perfect man, so what's up?
But it's far more than a personal matter, because this is an ongoing battle over the inspiration and infallibility of the King James Bible. Pastor Jack Hyles rightly called it “THE BATTLE OF THE AGES” (MP3 sermon from 1994). I humbly made this 4 hour documentary based upon that same truth. Jeremiah 6:16, “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.” Hebrews 3:13, “But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” I love you all with Christ's unconditional love.

“If you do not put a difference between justification wrought by the man Christ without and sanctification wrought by the Spirit of Christ within, you are not able to divide the Word aright; but contrariwise, you corrupt the Word of God, and cast stumbling blocks before the people.” —Evangelist John Bunyan
Truth + Half Truth = a Lie
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.”
