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
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..

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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
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

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

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...

at a church altogether is a big emotional thing when you just love to be
a part of something and see other families.

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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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
I like to
thank you for your website. Your notes and audio sermons have been

(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.

(This was written

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
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.

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.

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.

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.

They oppose themselves. They loved to have their ears tickled and

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

the "old pastors" about how missions work ought to be done.
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.
Concerning your message on the

the GC as given by Matthew 28, then it’s already fulfilled.
1.23 - “If ye continue in the faith
grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel,
which ye have heard, and which of the gospel, and which was preached to
every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister.”
1.5,6a - “For the hope which is laid
up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth
of the gospel; Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world;…"
So, according to Paul, the GC has
So, at best, the “regular” Evangelical

what Christ has accomplished in their stead. At worst, it’s the greed for
personal accomplishment, accolades, recognition and mammon.

this is good for folks to read.)

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.
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
1. God's truth is truth no
matter what anyone thinks about it or believes it.
2. Tradition, philosophy,
religions, denominations and man often oppose God’s truth.
3. RD, Paul and Risen Saviour
refutes and corrects the so called confusing and commonly held theological
positions. Such as how can a liar or a murderer receive Eternal Life. It
would be easy to show through not RD that anyone can lose salvation and
4. People will never really
grow and be able to live a proper and Godly manner of life until they get
a hold of Bible salvation. It is the crux of it all and the starting point.
If they are not quickened then all the teaching and preaching in the world
5. People, religious people
need to see the folly of heir dead denominationalism and religion. The
tradition and family ties are all so strong on many. Most are born into
a certain religion, no matter what the denomination.
6. People must understand
salvation before learning anything else.
7. Look at the years of teaching
in Touchet to folks, many of whom seemed and pretended, yet were only playing
the religion game, playing church putting on a church face as they talked
about church faces.
8. Could those men be quickened
and act like they do knowing the truth that they have been exposed to?
I submit that they are not, although they could be; but their actions speak
louder than their pretended words. Imitators only imitate and they can
not produce good fruit in the home in the long run; that is just the way
it all plays out.
9. Of course, you can only
preach the truth, but you can NEVER make them believe and live it within
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.

I was pleased to read of the change
from Touchet Baptist Church to King James Bible Church. And I say,
“It’s about time.”
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.
Though you and I are separated by
many many miles, I have felt closer to you at many times than my own father
and brother, and I think of, and pray for, you often. Please keep
up the wonderful work you are doing. I only wish there was someone
closer to home like you.
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 book 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.

My intention was to study to show
that we can no longer attempt to apply to our church Scripture which is
to Israel. We have unknowingly and ignorantly entered almost into
replacement theology without even realizing it. Looking into my sermon
filing cabinet, would you be surprised that I have much much more sermons
from OT and Jewish NT writers than I do from Paul. (Does this surprise
me, not now! I know why that is. We have been duped by the
If we apply Israel's promises to
the church we have essentially done away with the Jew (replacement theology
and liberation theology, and we might as well be singing "Swing Low Sweet
Chariot", then maybe some of our underground railroad friends from the
north can come and rescue us off of the plantation); and we also have done
away with the Jew's kingdom restoration (post and a-millenialism) and we
might as well throw away our King James Bibles because with all the spiritualizing
of literal Words (not thoughts), we make the Bible meaningless.
And then no one knows what anything
means, and then they have to get a "man of their god" to teach them what
the "originals" says (which they have never seen, so how would they know,
anyway, what nonsense and gullabillity in the people to believe that "original"
baloney). True the "Message" so-called bible is written in the mess
So, me and my family looked at some
of our Heaven hymns, and what did we find. We found what most people
think, that when you die you go to Heaven and get your harp and crown and
that's it, for all eternity! (No Jew, No Kingdom, No White Throne, No Tribulation,
No new Heavens and New Earth) And that's what we've been singing.
We sing about things that are fairy
tales, and then we preach about things that don't apply to us.
I am praying that The Lord will show
His rightly divided Truth as Paul told us to study in 2 Tim 2:15.
I have been taught that the Philadelphia
church age was supposed to be the great commission soul winning church
age of the great awakenings, the great missionary churches.
If that was true then why do many
now call this the Laodecian church age, if they are still doing what they
say belongs to the Philadelphia church age which they say is gone?
I think we have (me included) used
this Laodecian, luke warm, not hot nor cold, spew you out of my mouth,
stuff to scare people into doing what we want them to do! But they
didn't do it, did they? Hmmmm
Boy, I have tried to get people to
make decisions, and decisions are good, but I have went about it the wrong
way. My way, and not The Bible way. I've done that old paths
thing and tried to get people to fulfill the great commission and all the
scare tactics and didn't even realize it.
I'm glad for the Grace of The Risen
Jesus and though I might have been knocked down, stumbled, tripped up (down
actually), I'm gonna just get up and LIVE!
We have tried to be Jews, I guess
I have been a messenger of deceit following the god of this world!
Remarkable, and God didn't kill me
in His chastening wrath, as I had been taught that He will do to preachers
who fall into false doctrine.
I'm glad He lets me learn the truth.
I'm glad He teaches me the truth.

We are seeing more clearly today
than we did before rightly dividing the King James Bible, and through the
The children went to the youth conference
and came back with a new discernment on what went on there (music and emotional
stuff and OT stuff for today and gimmicks and skits and fun, fun, fun,
and many decisions being made, etc.).
We went to Texas to preach and came
back with a new discernment of some of the things they did there (foot
washing and some emotional music stuff). They didn't do this while
we were there but they told us about how good it was. Huh?
I've been preaching Paul's gospel
for living our risen lives and it sure is so much easier than preachin'
for decisions. I don't feel much like a failure any more because
folks haven't come down to the altar.
(altar?, the place of death). Huh?
What was I thinking? So, we
come to church to die? What is that?
Some folks still have the sour faces,
but most are really coming around and they look like they are enjoying
coming to church. They're even laughing a little now!
October 9, 2009
Your sermon "Already Gone" was good
stuff and right on time for me.
I've been asking our own folks personally
why they thought their children went bad, after they raised them in church.
I don't want my children to go bad.
I'm glad you preached this message
before I could get sidetracked by this wrongly divided and even non-King
James book by Ham. (So it really isn't even divided at all if it's not
October 9, 2009
This is great!
What a life changer!
I had tried to keep all the rules,
and boy was I very self righteous! (My whole family)
I guess we all were, Paul is straightening
all that out for me and my family. (2 Tim 3:16 reproof and correction)
(We were always told that God would
do bad things to us if we did not DO the Truth, WE WEREN'T EVEN
TAUGHT THE TRUTH!!!!)
I hope the church catches the gospel
of grace, God's imputed righteousness.
It makes everything so much better,
the more excellent way!
And we now have a foundation upon
which to build. Amazing.
I heard that from 1 Cor 3 so many
times, and I heard and read Galatians, so many times and it never clicked,
because it was always preached from the wrong vantage point of earning
righteousness! It was law!!!!!
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!
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
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.
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.
Yet we have the ministry of reconciliation. I suspect these things
are associated with enduring hardness - the hardness of the hearts of people
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.
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
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 .
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 .
Why I left
the organized church?
Pastors are more concerned with what the "brethren" in their camp think,
rather than what God has written.
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.
church building is considered a "temple", not a place for the church to
assemble. where we are to hear from God.
started out as hymns alone and four years later ends up hillbilly and canned
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.
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.
It all boils down to .....The main concern is the growth in numbers instead
of growth in the members.
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
quit attending "church" from 1993-2008 for the following top ten reasons;

Pastor spent more time trying to lead people to Christ with his "salvation"
sermons on Sunday than feeding the people.
Pastor spent more time on teaching what the various cult denominations
taught than he spent teaching the bible.
Gossipy women (and men but only during corporate prayer).
501 (C) 3 entanglements
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 .
Pastor's focus was on numbers with the visitation, bus, and outreach ministries
while the people were dying in record numbers.
number one reason why I left the church and chose to live without that
I am tired of hearing what Peter S Ruckman thinks.
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
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.
Can't help but think of Ephesians 4:14.
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
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
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
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

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

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!
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.
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 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
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.
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!
I found your letter and wanted to touch base with you. I have been learning
from your sermons and see you have moved.
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.
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
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.
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
I asked him
Jude. He stated you can even
use verses out of Jude for this dispensation. I was asked what about
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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"
don't read the Bible, AT ALL!!!!!!!
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.
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.
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.
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....
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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
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.
I confess that I read the sermon
notes more often than I listen to the sermons, but I am going to change
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
I just wanted
to take this opportunity to send this little note of encouragement on your
move to Ohio.
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).
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.
certainly continue to pray for you and your family as you make this move.
the Lord richly bless you and your wife in Ohio.
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.
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
seriously thinking that today may be my last day at the church.
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.
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.
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 :-).
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).
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
glad to hear from you. Hope to continue to receive the messages.
I particularly liked the "Fight with Right" series.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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".
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.
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
entire King James Bible is written FOR us, but it is not all written TO
learn from the "For" and we learn to apply the 'TO!"
