Personal Testimonies 
from our own World Wide Web Family

Across the country and from many overseas, we consistently hear from folks that have 'seen the light' based on Acts 26:18 - To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

These folks have seen the joys of the Risen Saviour by rightly dividing their King James Bible and believing all the Epistles written by Paul are written TO us today and that the rest of the KJB is written FOR us. We do not negate or throw out any of the KJB; however, we know that Romans to Philemon is TO us as Gentiles and to follow the risen Saviour we must follow what Paul teaches.  Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.  Philippians 4:9

These are people who have had "Paul and his writings about the Risen Saviour" 'enter' into their lives.  In other words, their lives have changed on the 'outside' so folks truly see a 'real and sincere' Christian.  I Thessalonians 1:9,10 - For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

Here are more and more testimonies of growth and encouragement from some personal folks from our website
about their rightly divided King James Bible and their learning to follow the Risen Saviour
through Paul's gospel within a rightly divided King James Bible..

Date listed before testimony means date included in this page, not necessarily when it was written.

By the way, some of you may think I am against the local church after you read these testimonies.
For the record, I am all for the local church IF it is based on Biblical design according to Paul.

Before 2013
After 2013

There have been times over the past few years (and it gives me no pleasure to admit this) that I fell prey to the whole "Gospel According to Jesus" concept, and it nearly ruined my faith.  It caused me to doubt my salvation and made me a depressed, discouraged,miserable wreck.  Was Jesus Lord enough?  Had I repented enough?  Was I bearing enough fruit in my life?  Was I living right enough?  I repented and repented; confessed and confessed; submitted and submitted; and none of it worked.  None of it gave me peace and assurance.
     Who would want that?  Who would want to live like that?  But that is exactly what we get when we try to find our peace and assurance through the Gospel of the Gospels--the Gospel of Jesus--instead of that of Paul through the revelation of the risen Christ.
     It was during these times that I would return to your web site and recorded messages.  And one of the things that actually gave me the most peace and assurance was the doctrine of spiritual circumcision found in Col. 2:11 as you  have explained it.  I see through that that though I will continue to sin in my flesh, the deeds of my flesh (or the lack thereof) do not affect my spiritual standing--my salvation.
     Now there are many high and mighty Bible expositors who would yuck it up and explain this away, but it is actually a doctrine of Paul received by revelation from the risen Savior.
     It is at these times when I thank God for your web site and the Greater Commission -- the way of God more perfectly.
     I can say to you that I am done flirting with other doctrines and I am set to follow Paul.
     I am sorry to say that I ever followed anything else--particularly John MacArthur's garbage.  This rubbish almost ruined my faith in God and sent me back into the world to indulge myself in sins of the flesh.  I figuired I was damned anyway so I might as well live it up.  Thank God the Holy Spirit, through the doctrines of Paul and your web site and messages, rescued me and showed me that I was not saved by the things I have done or not done, but by the shed blood of Jesus Christ once and for all.

Dear Pastor, In the dispensation of grace, we as biblical christians ( following the risen Saviour according to Paul rightly dividing King James Bible) cannot live as far away from the world or draw away from the world. As you know I work for a large supermarket chain and i work with all kinds of people, I need to work to support my family and pay bills. As biblical christians we live in the midst of an evil and perverted world. Paul tells us in Romans 12:2 not to be conformed to this world, as I read and study paul's epistles, Paul does not tell us to draw away from the world, but there are verses that paul gives us on how to live in the world.

My favorite verse is II Cor 1:12  for our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the GRACE of God , we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward. The key to living in this world is the GRACE OF GOD, God's grace gives us the strength to live right and to do right in this world.

In EPHESIANS 5:7-8 Paul tells us not to be partakers, and to walk as children of light. In EPHESIANS 5:15-16 Paul tells us to walk circumspectly not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil. In Philippians 2:14-15 Paul tells us do all things without murmurings and disputings, that ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the MIDST of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world. In 2 TIMOTHY 2:3-4 Paul tells us to endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ, no man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life. TITUS 2:11-12 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world. In COLOSSIANS 4:5 Paul also tells us to walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.

On the other hand the trib saints will have to keep themselves UNSPOTTED from the world  JAMES 1:27. In 2 Peter 1:4 the trib saints will have to escape the corruption that is in the world during the tribulation. Also in 2 Peter 2:20they will also have to escape the pollutions of the world. So called christians in the baptist crowd think they can live a life unspotted from the world, if they get dirty from the world they will confess their sins, or if they are living a holy and sinless life they expect God's blessings. In the tribulation their salvation will depend upon them to be unspotted from the world.  Again the key is God's grace, we as biblical christians abound in his grace.

Gods will for us today is to follow the risen Saviour according to paul, and to study Paul's doctrine and learn how to please GOD in the midst of an evil and perverse world. Paul really cared for his people and was concerned about their walk and testimony in this world.

    Hi ... I have been listening to you since December, 2008.  Rightly dividing makes so much sense now.  I know what is "TO" me now.  Rightly dividing a King James Bible exposes profane and vain babblings.  That is why I cannot go back to my baptist church.  Ever since I have been following the Risen Saviour according to Paul, my religion is being stripped away every day.
    I am happy that you are in the Ohio - that is much closer to Massachusetts than Washington.  It is hard not going to church; it gets lonely at times; but the most important thing in this world is that I have a King James Bible.
    Great sermons that were preached Sunday.  A lot of meat to chew on.  Sunday nights sermon was to the point. I could not stay in my Independent Fundamental Baptist Church any longer.  I left the church in May of 2009.  The pastor was preaching Tribulational books as doctrine TO us today.  Hebrews and Peter mostly.  he also preached about remission of sins and he wanted to continue in the apostles doctrine!  (I thank the Lord for II Timothy 2:25).
    These pastors today (I.F.B.) are trying to make their members like like Jews (OT and gospels).  I believe these churches are synagogues of Satan.
    For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ.  Philippians 1:8.  Pastor, I long to see you, Kenny and Jason and some webfamily face to face someday.  I pray that we can get together and to fellowship and to edify one another.  Pastor - continue to preach the hard stuff - we can handle the meat. Don't worry - continue to be stedfast, your preaching is not in vain!
    Pastor - I leave you with this verse: Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. I Corinthians 15:58

    I just finished reading your notes on the "They Say" sermon... and I honestly believe that I could have written that sermon for you!  You covered everything that I've been accused of or questioned on since I started teaching this stuff!
    I'm going now to download and watch the video of that sermon and show it to my home fellowship.  And if its alright with you, I would like to use your page on the web site I'm building for my home fellowship.
    GREAT stuff!  DEAD on target, and RIGHT on time!  I am re-inspired.

November 1, 2009
    I'm loving this stuff!!!  I tell ya, the more I learn, the more I want to learn... and the clearer the big picture of the bible becomes.  Now, instead of spending all my time trying to make contradicting verses in Matthew - Acts line up with verses from Romans - Philemon, I can breeze right through this stuff with few to no problems.
    I'm now like Paul... the scales have fell from my eyes!
    And this dark mirror isn't as dark as it used to be.

(concerning a witnessing conversation he had with a friend...)
    Actually, I was just getting warmed up (after an hour and a half) but he just couldn't stay any longer. Anyway, I do believe some things happened. He is a very intelligent guy, intuitive logic, which is good because I am very logical and consequently tend towards logical defenses to the KJB and Paul.
    Here is what’s really strange for me. In the past I could have “worked” him to the point where he would have “accepted Christ”, but that just went out the door with my religion. What I’m really wanting to hear from him is something like “what do I do?”.
    I don’t want to “sell” him Jesus; I want to show him the Risen Saviour and then if he wants that he’ll believe and trust. He’s already heard.

I've been listening to Pastor Paulson's sermons for about 4 or 5 years now online and it's been about 1 1/2 yrs of  stopping the local church I was at.  Two years ago I'd go infrequently, but when I fully quit attending services  I knew it was right although I miss the ladies and their children.  I did the right thing.
    I loved to meet with other ladies and talk about homemaking/dressing and always will... and the fellowship was hard to stop, yet there wasn't a lot of fellowship times other than the regular services.  Stopping  attendance at a church altogether is a big emotional thing when you just love to be a part of something and see other families.
    When I'd  listen to the sermon it bothered me greatly since it wasn't all true. It was Hyles philosophy  ... the statements and preaching was brainwash junk, although one sermon on dressing right was commendable.
    I'm thankful for understanding and cherishing the Word of God through rightly dividing it.
    Went to Maranatha Bible Baptist College in the 80's.  It was enriching to be there for one year as a young person, again, it 's being around a lot of people that I love, but I didn't learn this stuff there.  I even had a Pauline epistles class one summer  where  rightly dividing could have really taken off, but it didn't, although the music at that time in the school was good and right under the direction of Mrs Cederholm and Dr De Graw.
    It's the right thing to do- stand alone if you have to.  I know God is pleased.  Why be associated with a group that doesn't understand  rightly dividing?  The Hyles philosophy is wrong as is staying in the gospels for sermons all year as other pastors do.  It was Pastor Paulsons preaching that convinced me to stop going to the services at church altogether.
    I thought long and hard on it.  I go through one book of the bible at a time which is enriching, hear Pastor Paulson's sermons online, and I'm a productive homemaker.
    Now I can relate my convictions on all of this to my kids.  It's working out!  No regrets.
October 22, 2009

    I agree that today's churches are hyped and confusing to young believers as myself.  I find the churches wanting to entertain, to keep believers happy and do draw in unbelievers.
    I am leading in the path of Plain, so to speak, there is so much evil and ungodly material today, more so than when I was growing up, that we had to put a wall of protection up for our children.  We are raising three young children 3-8 and want to do it in a loving way that's different to how we were raised.
    Since coming across your site this week, I have learned new things like rightly dividing the word.  I have always felt lost on what I should be doing as a Christian, where to start reading my Bible.  What is for the Jews only and for Christians today.
    I am excited to find this site and would like to have guidance to continue in the right way and to lead my family for the coming of Christ.  - from Australia...

October 22, 2009
    I have recently come across your site in my search for true, fundamental teaching of the Word.  I have Gail Riplinger's material and have used the KJV exclusively.  I would like to learn how to teach, i.e. rightly divide the Word of Truth like you do. Can you steer me to some of your material which would teach me how to rightly divide the Word so the that I could rightly divide it for someone else?  I try to being a 'study' in the Bible, but keep getting bogged down in the procedure.  I want to be able to do this for myself first; then for others.
    I appreciate your teaching so much.  I have spent hours with it and have become so much more aware of how I have been influenced by the doctrines of the present day church.  My background: raised CAtholic but not by Catholic parents (went to Catholic school grammar right through high school), and, in my search for a deeper walk with the Lord, entered the convent for four years.  Came out thoroughly disillusioned with religion to the point that thought I had been deceived into believing in the existence of god.  After wandering about in a daze for many years, I finally found the 'real thing' by the grace of God and went through a series of churches, all of which ended up disasters for me because they didn't seem to have anything beyond a basic salvation message.
    Now I am churchless and feeling very much alone, using the internet to find material which will cause me to grow and to be able to search the Scriptures for myself. That is how I happened to stumble upon your site.
    Thank you for anything you can offer in the way of direction.  If you can direct me and I can follow your directions, after I learn how to divide the Word, I will find someone who wants to learn it too and teach them.

October 22, 2009
    I did not realize that rightly dividing the Bible would be such an issue with independent fundamental Baptists.  The Lord has opened my eyes to this.  And I am supposedly in the "Bible Belt"!  It amazes me how saved, blood bought, saved believers do not want to grow in the Scriptures.
    Do you have this same kind of resistance from your congregation?  The people in our church simply do not care about rightly dividing. They either are stuck with church teachings that they grew up with, or they are stuck with quotations from their favorite "fundamental" celebrity.  The word of God is of none effect.
    I like to thank you for your website.  Your notes and audio sermons have been a help to me in rightly dividing the Bible.  I wish others could see the importance of Paul's Epistles and not "pick and choose."  I like to thank you for your website.  Your notes and audio sermons have been  a help to me in rightly dividing the Bible.

    I realize that all Christians are in different stages of their walk, but it sure would be nice to see people excited about their Bible for a change.

(written in 2006)
    My wife and I have been tremendously blessed listening to your sermons for some time now.  We knew the Baptist church we had been attending was missing the point, when we got primarily salvation sermons every week; when we were repeatedly, insistently taught the Great Commission and that Peter founded the church; we knew something was wrong.
    But we couldn't figure what it was exactly.  My wife is an escaped Catholic, and eventually it dawned on us that teaching Peter as the founder of the Baptist church was just a little too close to the teaching of Rome.
    Then through your sermons, we came to understand how to really read our precious KJV Bibles.

October 22, 2009
(This was written before I left Touchet)
    I still remember the days when you had to rattle off a long list of things to identify those doctrines which separated you from the pack.  Now, once you've finished with King James Bible believing, rightly dividing, and Paul following you're done whittling.
    I know some folks miss the "going deep."  On the other hand there's not really anything deep anymore since by considering what Paul says God gives us understanding in all things.  I suppose God did it this way so that once that which is perfect had come then there was no longer any need for know-it-all men to have any authority, which also should have brought to an end the need for thorns in the flesh.

October 22, 2009
(This was written before I left Touchet)
    I think the fulness of the Gentiles will be come in when the falling away is complete.  The Pauline ministry was re-illuminated to us and many reject it, and some having initially accepted it are falling away from it.  The fulness of the Gentiles will be come in when God has had his fill of Gentile unbelief, and it seems that falling away has accelerated.

October 22, 2009
(This was written before I left Touchet)
    It looks like you're in prison.  And it looks like you're doing things like Paul did when he was imprisoned.  You'd probably be more effective if you weren't in prison.
    The PNW is apathetic to all things Bible.  A lot of "Christians" are deceived and also apathetic to all things Bible.  I think its easier to deal with the former.  The rest are so steeped in their traditions and their laws of do-teronomy and don't-eronomy that they are more blinded to the truth.  There maybe a Baptist church on every street corner in the South, but the vacuum is just as great.
    The Amish are a prime example.  The men are more interested in other gods like farming, hunting, making money and themselves.  Nowadays, the men pretty much avoid me.  If they can't then they avoid Bible discussions with me.  They'll talk about anything else, but if you start talking Bible they roll their eyes behind your back.
    Based on that, I'd say your prison is the church not necessarily the PNW.
    Yet we have the ministry of reconciliation.  I suspect these things are associated with enduring hardness - the hardness of the hearts of people around us.

    Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.  -  Galatians 4:28,29
    You're preaching in grandma's church which is no longer Baptist.  The members likely bear no resemblance to the members of old.  The grievous wolves are biding their time and speaking perverse things to lead disciples away after themselves.  They've followed men most of their spiritual lives and, in spite of your excellent teaching, their roots in the Bible have no depth.  They oppose themselves.  They loved to have their ears tickled and were delighted to hear something new
    Some of the wolves are out here on the internet, and undoubtedly they have made inroads into some of the members.
    The NW is populated with slow bellies needing sharp rebuke.  Their the wine tasting, Starbuck's loving part of the country second only to the capitol of San Francisco.  If you take that road you'll not have long before you're run out of town.  I know whereof I speak.  I preached a hard message to a bunch of Baptist preachers at one of their conferences.  At lunch none sat within 10 feet of my wife and I, and haven't spoken to us since.  Some impudent man saw what Paul said and tried to teach the "old pastors" about how missions work ought to be done.

October 21, 2009
    I hope all is well with you. My family just finished watching your message on “Evil Communications” and will be dwelling on our manner more and more. We are still hoping to be in your neighborhood in late December. I know things are tough right now financially, probably even scary at times. It is at times like these that it seems more comfortable to speak in clichés, but I rather despise clichés so I won't.
    My wife and I are realizing more and more that we are truly swimming with our Bibles and when you asked the question in the message tonight, “Do we know how to exist as a Christian without religion?” we paused the DVD and reflected on the fact that we have “lost” our religion and have been doing church at home for a year and a half and have grown in the Lord. You messed up everything we thought was good and showed us Paul’s more excellent way.

October 15, 2009
Concerning your message on the Great Commission:
October 14, 2009
(advice more than a personal testimony. I included this here because I believe this is good for folks to read.)
    Pastor - There are many aspects of RD, Paul and Risen Saviour that can be observed and I see value in your “testimony” that made you turn and leave certain camps. People are usually scared of anything that seems different from what they are used to.
    No matter what, you will be perceived as a heretic by some religious people because it threatens their religious tradition, system, denomination etc… I submit to you that your personal story about this is a strong example for others. Let me expand on this idea.     I believe that some are searching for God’s truth but that your story told in an authentic way can help them understand that their experiences and thoughts are not unique.
    It is important for people to know that someone else has been down the trail before. Very few people will blaze a new trail. If it seems unproven and unused then they will seek the path of least resistance.

From a 'changed' street preacher:
From a pastor...
    Hey, .  .  .   I've got folks here who are now telling others about the things they are learning.  And guess what?
    They are getting scoffed at!  But .  .  .  they are stickin' with the truth because they finally are reading their Bibles after all these years.
    Liberty is beginning to be grasped, at last!

    I just talked to a friend tonight after church, who came to preach here, and I told him about God not breaking fellowship with us and about imputed righteousness and no imputed sins and about the foundation and building the works on it etc, etc, etc.
    At first he was a little apprehensive, but it soon started clickin', for him too!
    I told him about 2 Tim 3:16 being where we find our correction and not in chastening, (and that the Lord still talks to him even if he sins)  and it began to make a lot of sense to him.  When I told him that The Lord must be talkin' to him if he is corrected by The Words of God, when he reads The Bible!  That really cleared up things for him!
    He goes to the church we started out of about an hour away.  He spent quite a bit of time here last year helping us, and he says he wants to come back and help us again, and I think he is beginning to see some changes that we are making.  I think he wants it too!

October 9, 2009
Over the past couple of months, I've been attacked for the KJB! I've also been falsely accused of being an ultra-dispensationalist!
   I had never even heard that term before, (makes me wonder how these folks know all of these terms, they throw at me!)
    I think they go on the internet and find whatever ammo they want to shoot down the preacher.
    You can find whatever you want good or bad on the internet, someone will back you up any way you choose to fight the preacher!
    Anyway, lost a few folks!
    But .  .  .  I'm working on some more folks who aren't in church, and some are getting pretty close to understanding the gospel!  (the ones without any church influence or internet are the ones who actually listen)
    This information age is a real mess! The Greeks truly do seek knowledge (just the wrong knowledge!)

    The Pacific Northwest is apathetic to all things Bible.  A lot of "Christians" are deceived and also apathetic to all things Bible.  I think its easier to deal with the former.  The rest are so steeped in their traditions and their laws of do-teronomy and don't-eronomy that they are more blinded to the truth.  There maybe a Baptist church on every street corner in the South, but the vacuum is just as great.

   Pastor over the years you have taught me so much, not just about the Bible, but how to know when you are going down a wrong road, and have the courage to turn around.  You may feel that you hurt a lot of people the first years you were on line, but I do not, many people got Saved during your years of preaching, and you, a Pastor, in a little town called Touchet had people all over the world going on line to hear what you had to say.
    Then when you learned the Bible more perfect you were not afraid to stand up and say so.  Yes, you may have lost some listeners, but those of us who wanted the Truth, not a man, to follow came with you.  I just want you know how you gave me courage, to stand for the truth.
    Marylin, what a friend you have been to me, and a woman who has taught me a lot about holding on, and no matter how much pain a you were in you were always there to encourage others, help children learn, and always a smile on your face.  What a joy it has been to keep in touch with you.  Thank you my friend for being there for me.  Whenever I am in pain, or feeling down, you come to mind and help me pick myself up and stop feeling sorry for myself and go on.
     My prayers and love go with you both.  You two have shown us how to stand on our feet, no matter what.

October 9, 2009
    Our prayers have always been with you Pastor the website and paltalk have been the only church we have know for the last 5 years and has been such a blessing to my family .We have received so much encouragement from you and the web family over the years just being able to hear preached what needs to be preached in this day and not the great commission .
    The one word that will run off or make mad these days is the name Paul , no one wants to hear about the risen savour they want to go back to the cross or run to the law and be put back in the chains that Christ took away .
    It can get so frustrating for it to be so easy for us to see but so hard to be heard it's like we speak another language and they just don't understand or they hold onto the teachings they have learned from man or they even go so far as to trust the man more than the Word if they have even read it for themselves at all .

October 9, 2009
We will still be praying without ceasing that more there will hear but even more than that that they that have heard will continue to grow and keep coming to be fed even if its only us web folks . Its sad how so many people stuck in churches that the great commission is taught know that something is wrong but wont even listen to you when you tell them what it is .

October 9, 2009
Why I left the organized church?
1. Pastors are more concerned with what the "brethren" in their camp think, rather than what God has written.
2. 99% of teaching is on tithing, bringing people to church and following the Pastor. Not rightly dividing, not how to understand the Bible, how to lead your home or how to live to please God.
3. The church building is considered a "temple", not a place for the church to assemble. where we are to hear from God.
4. Music started out as hymns alone and four years later ends up hillbilly and canned CCM.
5. Used as a place to draw strength through the music and preaching that stirs the emotions instead of the Bible, thus causing you to have to rely on the pastor for your spiritual strength instead of knowing God's Word and drawing strength from the security you find there.
6. You are discouraged from learning the Bible yourself, everything had to come from  the pastor.
7. I realized that all that was expected from anyone was to "play" your part and don't get too "serious" about it.
8.  It all boils down to .....The main concern is the growth in numbers instead of growth in the members.

from a grandma:
    Most of the people I talk to in chat rooms don't believe God preserved His word except in the originals. I ask them why did God tell us to be in one accord. Because I sure can't see that happening unless there is one final authority I have always taken the KJV as that authority. When I ask what is their final authority and they always say God puts HIs word in their minds. And I usually just get ignored when I ask if God just put His preserved word into our minds then why don't people all think alike if that is the way it goes.  Does God change His mind on us being in one accord.
    And another thing I was thinking about goes back to older women teaching younger ones.  I know that a widow indeed is 60 and older. So I take it that woman aren't mature and able to teach others before they are 60. I mean in the word,  And I am basing that on myself.  Yes I have known the truth for 31 years and I always read my Bible.  But I didn't study it daily until I was around 60. before that I had other duties that kept me busy most of the time.
    Yes I taught my own kids the way they should go.  And now I have raised my children and have kept my home.  And today I understand more because I do study that word and I never interpret it I just stand fast on it trusting God will teach me when I need to know and I know I will never know it all but I sure have enough to know that I have no fear of what is happening in the world around me.  I have no worriers any more. If I die tomorrow I am ready.  It is all because I do study God's word.  And as far as a preacher you are the best of the crop. you aren't a know it all and you trust God.
    I am blessed by many of your sermons and yes I listen to them all you at least feed the flock.  whether they swallow it or not.
    I have found that in the chat rooms it does make a big difference as long as the word of God is used and not our own opinions.  many have never heard it the way the Bible teaches it.  and in my home it sure has made a big difference my daughters in law know their place and my grandkids really listen up.  But my daughter is a different story she married a man that is not a Christian and her life hasn't been the greatest.  I keep my nose out of that except when they come here to visit and believe me my 4 grandkids know how they are to act here and yes it has helped them in their own home.  Which my son in law has finally accept the Lord after 17 years of marriage. I have fought this garbage since back in the late 60's  and early 70's I was known as the crazy lady.  Let me say this the crazy lady has not changed and her kids know how they are to live also.  God is faithful when we trust Him above all else and know His word for ourselves.
    Older woman don't know there place any more so our younger women have no teachers.  Most churches allow the younger ones to be the teachers.  teenagers baby sitting the children and the older listening to the younger
    Titus 2:3-4  The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;  That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, until that changes it will remain the same.  Men need to take their places of authority and older women as teachers to the younger ones.
    Now we can't lay all the blame on the man.  We need to be teaching mothers how to raise their sons and daughters.   Most do effeminate make there boys womanish so we need men in the pulpit that are willing to show them their errors. And sadly to say mothers try and make their girls equal in all the wrong ways with the men. And we need husbands that can control their wives and children.( in a nice way LOL)

I am not a man but I can tell you why I left the church many years ago.
    In most churches we don't have men that want to lead they allow their women to do the things that the man is suppose to be doing.
    And most preachers want to please the wives and not the church.  they set up all kinds of things that only feed the flesh
    Not many called today they are just educated and say it is a calling when in fact it is just their career.  They don't have time for any thing of God.  They are too busy pleasing the ones that give them their checks.

I quit attending "church" from 1993-2008 for the following top ten reasons;

10. Tired of being told if I wasn't street preaching every Friday night I wasn't spiritual enough.
9. Pastor wanted unlimited authority over my house and unlimited submission from me.
8.  Pastor spent more time trying to lead people to Christ with his "salvation" sermons on Sunday than feeding the people.
7.  Pastor spent more time on teaching what the various cult denominations taught than he spent teaching the bible.
6.  Cliques
5.  Gossipy women (and men but only during corporate prayer).
4.  501 (C) 3 entanglements
3.  Church is inferior to the US Government in the fact that it (US Government) has replaced the church by tending to widows, orphans, and elderly, thereby becoming insignificant and creating an atmosphere of tolerance for the lazy and welfare state nullifying Paul's commandments .
2.  Pastor's focus was on numbers with the visitation, bus, and outreach ministries while the people were dying in record numbers.
And the number one reason why I left the church and chose to live without that essential institution;
1.  I am tired of hearing what Peter S Ruckman thinks.

October 9, 2009
Well, this seems to be the American way.  The Faith is something you “do”, not something you live and apply to every aspect of your life.  I really hate to say, but, most professing believers are in love with this life and will not give thought to conforming to the image of Christ until they are forced to by chastisement or a possible brush with death.
    Well, you know—the funny thing about that is people have to want this.  It was that way in my life.  The different thing that separates Christianity from, say, Islam is that in Islam you just “follow the rules” and BAM! You are a “faithful follower of Allah”.  However, in biblical Christianity, God requires cooperation which results in obedience which results in fruit… However, if the “disciple” is unwilling in their private life to pursue a life lost in God (just as Paul did) then church, bible reading and even prayer is just something they “do”, just like mowing the lawn or doing dishes.
    The Faith is to be lived not just a dead, robotic kind of existence that is miserable on the inside but “smiley” on the outside.  It’s unfortunate, but our society is lived by someone else telling us what to do…this extends to the church also.  I fear that American Christians consider being “faithful” by adhering to denominational and preacher based doctrines and prejudices rather than being alone with God and battling their flesh to be willing to conform to the image of God.

I am with you all the way... this life is so temporary....and yet it can be so all consuming.  I feel extra blessed to have known you and Marylin so long.....one of the things I appreciate the most about you....and respect most about you....is that you've always preached the truth as you were learning it yourself from God's own words....and when you learned new things...that conflicted with past things you'd preached...you were never too proud to admit that and preach it.  The truth is the truth...and you have always  preached it...no matter the cost to you.  I haven't been able to send money in awhile...but you can be sure I pray for you and Marylin and what you are doing there every day....and I will keep on.  I know you are the messenger....not the message....    I'm human and sometimes the message is hard to take alright....but I always appreciate you being the messenger  :)   and I would for sure always rather know the truth than not.

October, 2009
    Can't help but think of Ephesians 4:14. I think he has been blown around for so long on every wind of doctrine that he won't allow himself to see the truth .
    Its strange how people can except that many different types of teachings but can't see the simple truth of the risen Christ and rightly dividing they will give up altogether first .
    I hope he will see that what he has been searching for has been right there all along in a KJV Bible but the easy answers are the hardest ones to take ...

October, 2009
    Pastor Mike I have tried in simple ways to engage some of the folks outside our church, man they are dull of hearing, they don’t even divide up books of the Bible they will claim the whole book like Jude or Rev 1 thru 4.
    At times it seems like I’m stirring up trouble, I was even asked once what kind of false doctrine am I proposing. No doctrine just Paul only writings that are to us, it is scary at times people label you a false teacher.
    I asked a guy on the street Saturday night why was he only preaching on drinking why not preach Christ Jesus and Him crucified, he said they need to be told that drunkenness is a sin, I said like they don’t already know that.
    Tell them something they don’t know. How Christ came into the world to save sinners, He said you preach what you want and I’ll preach what I want and he did

October, 2009
    Sorry it’s so long between writing, still dealing with that old sin of procrastination. Hope to have a gift to send soon, been a bit scarce here lately. My last day for the auto mechanic was Monday. That’s ok, he was not paying on time and owes for the past few months, doubtful if I’ll receive some or any of it.
    My Bible reading (and devotions with _______) is still daily. Have to get a note book and start an in depth study as mentioned in past correspondence. I’m growing in the Risen Saviour and going away from people. They just don’t want to deal with me. That’s ok. ____, for his limited abilities, is coming along. I’ve taken him under my wing and we watch out for each other.
    My other friend ___ is still stuck on Ephesians 4:14. We will talk about it! You may have noticed I said ‘friend’, unclear if I should call them ‘brother’. We’ll talk.
    Lots of conviction from your sermon ‘Evil Communications Corrupt More Than You Realize’. Have much to do in these areas. The world and devil are out to get _______ and the battles get weary. My strength comes from the Lord Jesus Christ, prayer and your sermons that help keep the needle pointing the right way on the compass. It’s the hardest preaching ever. You do it without the yelling and shouting and use lots of love. It truly is the ‘goodness of God’. Tell Jason and Kenny they are doing just fine, they have a good teacher!
    It’s been helping to go into the archives and fill in the missing pieces on my foundation of the Risen Saviour. Got a lot from August 2007 on “Quicken.” I remember our first phone conversation, for a week or two I was full of joy and hope. I’m now seeing that my 2003 ‘conversion’ was false and to the wrong Jesus. We’ll talk!

October, 2009
I was just thinking about you.  I am into your new sermons, the one on the curse was very educational.  I say this for my road to Christ started in Genesis and to go back and learn from that KJV again is a blessing.
    I did not realize your move to celina meant a home church, that is very inspiring to me.  I have mentioned that the churches locally are lacking in proper scriptural doctrine.
    Learning about Paul as our apostle makes one take a hard look at what is taught and what is needed to be learned. So keep up the fight ,you have shown the world that the church can truly be where the spirit of the Lord is being preached. It is not the building but the believer.

October, 2009
    I have been reading the testimonies on the website and its has brought a joy to my family just to see we are not alone even if we are not close physically to everyone trying to learn and grow by following Paul learning about what the Risen Savior told him . I have not had a regular church now for a little more than 10 years I stopped going in 98 after the pastor died .. Tried a lot of churches around here never finding a place to hear the truth.
    The modern church is so wide spread that what we have here on your website is so hard to find . I can't understand how a church having the truth will so quickly reject that, I guess to build a bigger one .Preaching the risen Savior is not good for building the church bank account cause as soon as the Pastor 'died' the great commission came right in and took hold without a fight . The music and then busses ,barbecues, kids programs were the focus not feeding the flock that was already there . And missions were so big we had a chart to show how much we had given for the year . That was more important than if we had our own Bible reading down .
    How many tracts passed out and visitation night were required to stay in good graces with the deacons . I am so happy to have stumbled on your site whats it been 5 years ago ? I don't know what we would do without the site. Lets hope that day does not come and this site stays to help us displaced and scattered bunch trying to do what the Risen Savior would have us do and keep trying to please Him and not our own flesh . Trying to get at least 1 day off to be there in November .  Hope to see you soon

October, 2009
    Paul definitely had a love for his own people; blindness in part for them, Thank God we got in before the fullness of the gentiles comes in WOW Paul had revealed to him by the Risen Lord so much more than what the prophets of old were told, kept secret the Mysterys that are made know unto Paul are simple to study if people would study the whole Bible but as you know people get stuck in one spot and never see the fullness of God’s Grace and His Will, some people can’t get past the mystery of Christ in you the hope of Glory.

October, 2009
    I just finished reading through your testimonies page, and what comfort and joy it brings to my heart, to see so many people get a hold of the truth. When it seems like you and your family are the only ones getting “it” you often feel lonely and ostracized. I know that my husband and I have not been to “a church building” in over a year. We have continually grown through Paul’s teachings about the Risen Saviour.
    As my husband informed you it was the music that was coming into the church that grabbed his attention. I thank God that I have a husband who can lead (firmly resolved). It was take off from there. Every Sunday we sit down as a family and study and listen to what you are teaching.
    Here lately we have been listening and looking at "How to Understand the King James Bible."  As you know my husband had been in the Fundamental King James Baptists movement (that’s what I like to call it) for a long time. I, on the other hand grew up in a Southern Baptist Church, and I can tell you it is easier for me to let go of the traditions taught to me than it is for my husband, although there were some things that I learned in the King James church we went to that was hard to get out of my head.
    Thank you for seeking and teaching the truth. The peace and liberty I now feel are amazing. It seems when you are under the great commission mentality you constantly seem depressed and out of sorts, like you will never amount to any thing. That WWJD thing came from that mentality and I believe that is why so many feel hopeless and lost. We can not do what Jesus did, and when we think we can and fail we soon become discouraged. I would say that is obviously not God’s intention.
    We should be encouraged to learn and study the truth; to love it, seek it, and spread it. I can tell you that I don’t feel like I am missing out on anything by not going to a compromised church. I am glad that my husband and I will be able to give the truth to my son, and hopefully eliminate much spiritual confusion for him as he grows into an adult.
    I thank the Lord for you, and definitely for my husband who is such a wonderful and strong leader. Our prayers are with you in Celina. By the way, I know my husband mentioned the possibility of coming to visit and all of us are excited about it. We’ve seen so many videos and listened to so many audios that it will be nice to finally get to meet you. Thank you!

October, 2009
    I found your letter and wanted to touch base with you. I have been learning from your sermons and see you have moved.
If you moved five hours south my prayers would have been answered.
    After all this time I still am looking for a church to fellowship. I attended a home church two weeks ago and I am still I need.
Your sermons are a blessing each day, I am at the end of 2008, your salvation message kept me in thought all day, freedom in Christ is in a an understanding of the KJB through Paul. I write this not because it is what you want to hear but you have taught me that freedom Christ gave us is through His word not the words of man.
    That, I am sad to say, is what I have encountered in most churches I have attended.
    I pray your move went well. I am waiting for your web study to start. If a church is not in my future, you are.

     I got into a discussion after church with an older established member from our church. I asked him how do you rightly divide the word of truth. His comment was that if it is not in this dispensation of grace it does not apply and then he added you still have to divide it even further. He agreed with me about the book of Revelation but he said there are verses in Revelation that you can use for us, Rev 22:17 was one.
    I asked him about Jude. He stated you can even use verses out of Jude for this dispensation. I was asked what about Jude 14 could you not preach on the Second coming using that verse as part of the preaching and teaching and I said well yes. On 2 Peter 3:9 he said who is that written FOR and TO. I said well I could apply that to the present church age and he said see that is rightly dividing and then we both had to leave it was getting late for lunch.

Paulson response:
     II Peter 3:9?  Not a problem, even during the Trib, God is not willing that any should perish.   And in the trib, repentance will finally mean what preachers today want it to mean – stop doing wrong!  Read verse 10. Also, verse 9 is a statement FOR all time, but that is not being spoken to us.  It is a fact about God.  Like Hebrews  4:12 – not written to us, but we still learn from it.  We can NOT take II Peter 3:9 and say to folks that is TO us and then say the rest of that chapter / book, etc. is not.

His follow up email response:
        That is when they call me a hyper divider,  I was told either all scripture is profitable for doctrine for reproof for correction for instruction in righteousness or it is not, so what it is it - all scripture or some of it, I said I in the context of that verse it means all. Then we were interrupted and never got back into again.  Trying to change the minds of the people / Pastor at our church scares me, they will say they study the KJB, they say they rightly divide but when I bring up Paul only WOW should have said I wanted to do infant baptism while I’m at it. they think I’m a hyper divider. It gets tough.

September, 2009
    I have been listening to you since December, 2008.  Rightly dividing makes so much sense now.  I know that is TO me now.  Rightly dividing with a King James BIble exposes profane and vain babblings. That's why I cannot go back to my Baptist church. Ever since I have been following the Risen Saviour according to Paul.  My religion is being stripped away every day.
    I am happy that you are in Ohio.  Much closer to Massachusetts than Washington.  It is hard not going to church; it gets lonely at times.  But the most important thing in this world is that I have a King James BIble.  Pastor, I leave you with this verse. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.  I Corinthians 15:58

September, 2009
    Hello my friend, I'm still listening to your web recordings.  Still with ya!  We are still learning a lot. Preached Sunday on chastening (not what most folks think)! It was tough for me, but the truth sometimes is tough. Basically the theme was non-chastening for the Christian in this age. Some scales fall off, AMEN!!!!!  HHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
    I was told personally by one of the men Sunday, that he can now see the tradition and bondage that we have been handed, concerning all of this talk of chastening for Christians! That's all worth it, my friend.

September, 2009
    Me and the family have coined a new phrase. We call this age in which we live the "Surprise Dispensation". We are currently reading thru the OT and are up to Micah. Guess, what?  Up to this point in the Bible , no mention of this age of grace yet, the church age.  So, we call it the "Surprise Age". In Micah we see The Messiah coming, then Him giving up Jacob, then Jacob going thru the Tribulation, and then the Kingdom. Guess what!  "Surprise" the church age! In between the giving up of Jacob and the Tribulation!
    And we have concluded that most folks would say that if the tribulation would have come at Peter and Stephen's preaching that that would have just been too much of a surprise. No, that was told before in the plan, thru out the OT! What was not mentioned in the plan was the ...  "Surprise Age"
    People really don't read the Bible,    AT ALL!!!!!!!

September, 2009
    I think that you will see much more opposition here than in Touchet in different ways. Baptist popes are pretty protective of their tithe checks.

September, 2009
    It's almost as if Paul is a plague to these so called believers. Who ever thought that the apostle Paul would be the thorn in the flesh to most Christians...... Well, amen brother - sometimes I think its time ... to ... leave Vermont but I also hope  to start a Pauline only church someday but I have a lot more to learn. Thank God that Paul is the pattern.  Most Christians will never live the life because they don't know Paul's manner of life.

Georgia - September 2009
    I suspect that before its over that you will have more publicity than you can imagine but none of it will be very positive. The different denominations will even band together to gang up on someone if they all feel threatened. Its funny what will unite folks who have nothing in common.

September, 2009
    Just checking my email before I finally get to go to sleep!  I'm good....and yes... I have been keeping up with the sermons... trying to be there live when I can.... Celina via paltalk is my new favorite place to be :)
    When ___ calls I talk to him about your work in Celina.... and Paul's gospel... and sometimes he listens.  TVBC did a number on him alright.....at one point he told me he'd been doing everything he was "supposed to do" so why would "God let  this happen?" and he was so angry and told me he had no more faith in God..... that was hard to hear... I know what TVBC preaches ....and I know why ___ was thinking that way.... I texted him for a good hour about this is exactly why he needs to read what Paul says to us today.... that God didn't do this.... and no matter what the circumstances.... we can stand.... in him..... in his strength and go through whatever we must.  He does have his Bible with him....
    Everything you did there was so worth it if even ONE stays with the preaching.... easy for me to say... I didn't go through it hahaha.... but seriously.... I think if some drift into something else... God's words will come back to them.... and maybe then ...after they see err from the faith up close they will return.

September, 2009
    And remember that even though you might see my name on paltalk during your meetings, I still listen to the sermons afterward.  (of course, my aim with that statement is to be encouraging to you) - encourage = to give courage

August, 2009
    I would like the website to continue even if there are no new sermons.  I could listen to your post 2005 sermons over and over.
    I refuse to to give money to ministries that support the Great Commission, the corrupt modern Bible versions, and the horrendous contemporary music as well as reject rightly dividing.  No way would I give money to the local Southern Baptist church.  I can only support ministries that rightly divide the 1611 KJV, and I can't go back.

August, 2009
    I am thankful the Lord led me to the website. Your preaching appealed to me from the first time I listened to a sermon.  The church here in Mississippi bothered me from the beginning, and now I know why - it rejected the KJV and never rightly divided.  As the pastor in Louisiana said, they are all Jew wannabees.

August, 2009
I have no problem driving up to 650 miles in one day.  I would enjoy going to a Bible conference if given at least several month's notice to arrange my work schedule. I wish I were a millionaire and could give you $100,000 per year just to travel to Southern Baptist churches and confront them in their Sunday School classes about Paul and KJV.  I only get looks of bewilderment and confusion from Southern Baptists when I mention rightly dividing.  Southern Baptists are generally polite and non confrontational good old boys.

September, 2009
People just don't understand that the Lord revealed a completely brand new thing with Paul as shown in Ephesians 2 and 3, Galatians, and Romans 15 and 16 and that He set Israel and the Jews aside.  People don't realize that Paul was completely different from the original 12 apostles.  People don't realize that the 4 gospels were for the Jews. Actually I just don't think they want to.

September, 2009
KJB, Paul, and rightly dividing are the main issues worth fighting for.  Not rightly dividing will make the churches end up Catholic.  If Christians had always followed Paul and rightly dividing,  much of the suffering in the world the Catholics and later the Calvinists caused would never have happened.

September, 2009
I confess that I read the sermon notes more often than I listen to the sermons, but I am going to change that now.
    I read the Touchet web site every day, but now I normally just read and/or listen to the sermons when you send them in the e-mails.
     The more I read into the "Greater" Commission stuff, the better I feel about my own Christian experience.  I used to feel nothing but guilt if I was not living exactly the way some preacher said I should be, if I wasn't out knocking on doors every Tuesday night, and if I wasn't "winning" people to Christ.  My eyes are opened now to the fact that we don't win anybody to anything and that people are not saved by our smooth sales pitches and great enticing words.  I fully believe that we are to give people the saving word of God (not our words) and then back off and let the Holy Spirit do His work.  Obviously, if they have questions or request follow-up, we do so, but I don't feel that badgering them like a bad used car salesman is going to do any good if the Holy Spirit had not pricked their hearts.
     The Mormons are famous for keeping their people so busy with meetings, clubs, studies, and other activities that they won't stop to question the false doctrine that is being crammed down their throats.  Sadly, I feel that is the case in too many Bible-believing churches today.  The Greater Commission stuff is showing me this and I am breathing a sigh of relief now.  I pray for the unsaved people I know--most of them religious but lost-- and if I get the opportunity, I witness to them to whatever degree I am able.  But my days of fretting that I didn't witness to enough people or knock on enough doors this week are over.
     And although I hate my sins and hate when I sin, I no longer hang my head constantly over my sins because I know they were paid for at the cross and I am not in bondage to guilt.  Sooooo many preachers out there today are condemning the sheep--sheep whose penalties have already been paid for 2,000 years--and keeping them in bondage to guilt.
     I greatly want to learn the Paul stuff better.  I am going to continue to read and listen to the sermons and study the Bible accordingly, and I hope to make it out to Celina for one of your conferences some time.

July, 2009
    I just wanted to take this opportunity to send this little note of encouragement on your move to Ohio.
     I know how hard this is for you and how much stress you are under, but if this is the Lord's will (and I'm sure you made sure that it was) He will give you the peace and comfort you need at this time).
     It's kind of funny, but I have never met you face to face, and yet for six years now that I have been intensely reading the web site, you have been an incredible encouragement and inspiration to me.  I almost feel like I have known you for years..  I have burdened you with some of my spiritual problems and you always seemed to have the right answer.  I have seen you go through some highs and lows as well and have even watched your family grow.
     I will certainly continue to pray for you and your family as you make this move.
     May the Lord richly bless you and your wife in Ohio.

July, 2009
    As I have written to you earlier,  I am thinking of leaving my local church simply because the pastor there ... has moved to using the NKJV instead of the KJV.  I have not spoken to him about this and don't intend to, but if I had to guess, I would say that it had to do with bowing to pressure from the people who wanted to use a modern version.  I have noticed that a good percentage of the people in the church use the MacArthur Study Bible, which only comes in the NKJV and NASB versions.
     The church is large for my area-- I would estimate 300-500 people.  It seems that everyone uses a different version of the Bible and no one stands for anything.  That alone is enough to make me want to leave, but it goes beyond that.  The church has a huge children's program, from AWANA up to Refuge teen ministries and the like.  Modern (Christian rock) music is used in the teen program.  And from what I see-- particularly in the teen program-- it is just an opportunity for teens to see their school friends, gossip about who is dating who, and talk about whatever.  I don't fault the teachers in the program or the pastor: I think it is just the nature of the beast.  This has made me want to leave because it seems to me like the church is simply trying to cram as many unsaved, unruly teenagers as possible into one place and to use any worldly method to do so.  They can then announce to the world that they have the biggest children's' program in the area.
I believe that church is for Christians, not the unsaved; and that cramming 200 yelping heathens into a building and giving them cookies and games to play is not evangelism or discipleship.
     I am seriously thinking that today may be my last day at the church.
     This church is only 2.5 miles from my home, which makes it very convenient.  I have found a KJV-only church that is 10.5 miles from my home, which is less convenient.  But is that what it is all about?  No.  It is about serving the Lord in the spirit of truth; and that truth is only found in the KJB.

 Pastor Mike,
     Somehow-- as often as I read the web site-- I just stumbled on the "How To Understand the King James 1611 Bible" page.  It is actually the primer on Paul that I have been looking for and it has been a wonderful blessing.  It seems like each and every sermon has something in it that speaks to me and encourages me.
     Yesterday, I pulled out my Cambridge KJV with no notes or references (I had lately bee reading from the Scofield Bible) and decided that I was going to begin at Acts 9-- when Paul really first comes into the picture) and read all the Pauline Epistles.  I have decided to follow the risen Savior through Paul.  I am now a Paul Man :-).
     When I read your sermons on Paul and "The Greater Commission", I am amazed at the guilt we willingly put on ourselves as we try to follow the Gospels and the Great Commission.  I am even more shocked at the fact that we allow pastors and other muckety-mucks in the local churches to put this guilt on us.  "If you don't come out for visitation, you might not even be saved."  If you're not tithing, you're robbing God."  John MacArthur is currently preaching on his radio show that The Beatitudes are indeed the way to salvation that if you are not living according to The Beatitudes, you are not a true Christian.  What hogwash.  A lot of what is contained in The Beatitudes is indeed repeated in the Epistles, but never as a way of salvation.  Think of the people out there that are doubting their salvation and living in guilt because they failed to carry a Roman soldier's armor for more than a mile, or failed to be reconciled to their brother before taking their gift to the altar (I didn't know we, in this dispensation, had an altar or took gifts to it-- sounds disgustingly Catholic to me).
     No, I've decided to give myself a break and follow Paul instead of the wolves out there who would damn me to Hell because I don't dance to their little tune.

October, 2008
    Very, very glad to hear from you.  Hope to continue to receive the messages.  I particularly liked the "Fight with Right" series.
     I am very sick of trying to make a horse race of this thing (the true faith).  Everywhere I turn (with the exception of your web site) there is error, and some of it very egregious.  I am battling Catholics and so-called Christians (who are really nothing but cultists) who are in terrible error.
     As I wrote you before, I am glad you have left the "Baptist cult" because they left us long ago.  I am not going to church, and have not for 8 months now because I cannot find a church that teaches what I know to be the truth and teaches exclusively from the KJV.
     I know you have had a lot against you between your health and that of your wife, but I hope you will continue to be an oasis in this wilderness.

    Since I have been saved (16 years now), I have gone to nothing but independent, “fundamental” Baptist churches (some great and some not so good), and I can say that the Baptists left people like you and I behind long ago.  They seem to have their own agenda, and it is not Christ’s agenda, and surely not Paul’s.
    Although much that is in the four Gospels is repeated in Paul’s epistles; Paul seems to act as a filter for us today — filtering out what is for us and what is not for us as Christians.  Funny how God has these things all planned out from the beginning.  And although I, like you, read the Gospels, I realize that God was talking primarily to a Jewish audience, and I am not Jewish.
    As for those that will oppose you and label you as “hypers”: there were a few times in Acts when Paul said that he was clean of their blood and had nothing more to do with them, not because he was an angry rabble - rouser, but because he had better things to do than spend time arguing with those who had already decided they were not going to listen.  He knew there were too many people out there that would receive his message to bother with those who had already made the decision not to. You will probably receive that same opposition and will have to make the same decision.
    I, myself, have frittered away valuable time—not to mention heartache and pain — on people who were not going to change their minds.  They were sold on their false religions and false beliefs, and nothing I said was going to change their minds.  Fine.  I don’t want to see anyone go to Hell, least of all family members and people I care about, but if that is the decision they have willfully made, so be it.  There are people out there waiting for someone to tell them about Christ, and time cannot be wasted on people who have already made their decision to deny and reject Him.

     As I type this, I am watching the video version of "Chosen to Confound," and you are right: there is so much more to be gotten from watching/listening to the sermons than simply reading the notes.
     It's difficult to find a church that teaches "Paul" rather than the "Great Commission."  You are one of the few that I know of, so all I am learning about "Paul vs. GC" is coming from you.  And as I watch the video (I watched another one too--  "What Does Paul Teach"), I am catching fire for the "Paul stuff."
     Oh, what so many fundamental, well-meaning preachers, pastors, and ordinary Christians are missing by not knowing or believing this stuff.  What I was missing by not knowing and believing this stuff.
     What angst and frustration we ordinary Christians could save ourselves if we practiced these things rather than running around, door-to-door, trying to "win people to Christ".
     As I said in a previous e-mail, I am purposed to practice Paul's advice to "know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified." -- to tell people about Christ, via Paul, and not the things of the Gospels that are not for us (though they can be profitable for us).  I am no longer going to debate with people-- with my Catholic dad -- about religion, salvation, etc.  I am simply going to tell them about Jesus Christ and Him crucified and nothing else.
     Thanks for all the encouragement and advice you have given me in the past and present (and I'm sure the future), and for introducing me to the "Paul stuff."

The entire King James Bible is written FOR us, but it is not all written TO us!
We learn from the "For" and we learn to apply the 'TO!"
