- Forbearance -
thou the riches of his goodness
Please be aware
that we know that we have not apprehended yet,
but we will continue to learn how to forget those things which are behind,
and will strive to reach forth unto those things which are before... (from Philippians 3:13)
servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to
In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves;
if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil,
who are taken captive by him at his will.
II Timothy 2:24-26
Preach the word; be instant in season, out
reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine;
but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
II Timothy 4:2-4
The Way of God More Perfectly
Jesus taught the "way of God" to the Jews through the apostles. Matthew 22:16
Jesus teaches the "way of God more perfectly" to us through Paul! Acts 18:26
A More Excellent Way
...and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way. I Corinthians 12:31b
This is Not Heard in Churches Anymore
Jesus Christ took care of the law so we are no longer sinners...
...not because we 'stop' sinning, but because Christ stopped sin to everyone who believeth!!
Romans 10:4; Romans 6:1-14; I Corinthians 6:12: I Corinthians 10:23
We are King James Bible Only!
We want God's words, not principles. We believe the KJB is the inspired and preserved word and words of God - it makes no sense to us to lean backward into any past languages nor is there any 'new' ways of saying things or doctrine coming other than Christ Himself. We believe that which is perfect to be the King James Bible and that it has all come spiritually and with God's guidance and blessing and love! I Corinthians 13:10
I won't even take up my time with anyone arguing with them about the so-called originals, etc. We believe that we are still able to stand - daily - face to face with God spiritually through that King James Bible and are always reminding ourselves that someday soon we shall stand physically face to face with the Saviour Himself.
All those new modern perverted and corrupted Bibles bring to folks 'another spirit' and 'another Jesus.'
As you can see, I am as King James "Only" as one can be!
Big Names & School backgrounds Mean Nothing to Us Anymore
I have in my past the following 'big name preachers:' Dr. Peter S Ruckman; Dr. Jack Hyles; Dr. James Modlish; Dr. Samuel Gipp; Richard Jordan; Dr. Rick Sowell - along with a long long list of 'smaller' names. Over the years, those men have been instrumental in my growth as a Christian as well as a pastor - in more ways than they or anyone else will ever know.
But eventually I learned that I have had to go beyond following any names or denominational teachings just because of what men said based on their opinions / teachings, etc. or because of their popularity, personality or self-proclaimed success 'on the field.' I have seen that most men today just try to imitate their spiritual guru / leader instead of being led with fresh material each week, etc. We have observed more than once that most preachers seem to preach what (and how) their hero has taught them, which is not necessarily always the Book!
We no longer "subscribe" to
any particular "camps," as they are called among the brethren.
We are Not Impressed with 'Supposedly Successful' Church Backgrounds & Philosophies
There are more and more 'big church and Bible instituted backgrounds' that I not support. No offence is meant by me, but we don't need any 'modern successful church building and numbers-attracting programs and philosophies' to be a 'blessing' to us. God has been doing just fine without those modern compromising false gospel programs. We may not be growing in huge numbers, but we continue to grow 'in' and 'with' the Book! Number 'gain' is not our goal nor should it be! I Timothy 6:5
We follow the 'Greater' Commission of Paul, NOT the Great Commission of Peter
I do not believe nor will I preach supporting the "Great Commission." It is a false gospel if preached TO us today as it does not align with Paul's gospel. I preach what I call the Greater Commission from Paul and it is the Greater Commission that will continue to be preached from this internet pulpit!
P.S. - Do not label us a 'Hyper,' either! We do not ignore the OT nor do we ignore the Gospels, Acts, Hebrews, James, I II Peter, I II III John, Jude and Revelation. These books are just not written TO us, nor are they directed TO us; however they are still there 'for' us - to learn from only.
We do know how to use properly what
portions of the Bible that are written TO us as compared to all
that which is FOR us.
We Try to Apply the Risen Christ's Teachings to Our Daily Lives
We try to learn and apply the risen Christ's teachings that the risen Christ taught face to face to Paul and then for Paul to Teach TO us Through a King James Bible. We do NOT try to apply the teachings of Jesus that were taught to the Jews ONLY or to the Tribulation times.
We are going to be judged by Paul's gospel (Romans 2:16) so we may as well preach his gospel. I believe his gospel is far more than just I Corinthians 15:1-5. I believe that Paul's gospel is Romans through Philemon with Acts being a transitional book from Peter's 'gospel of the circumcision' to Paul's 'gospel of the uncircumcision' and Hebrews is a transition book written to the Jews in preparation for the Tribulation.
Hebrews through Jude is written to those folks in the Tribulation, so we don't claim those books as TO us today, anymore than we would ever claim the Gospels TO us today either - let alone the Old Testament. You wouldn't build a boat for salvation so why preach the Beatitudes, Matthew 28 or Mark 16, etc. to us today, either. We will leave that stuff to the Pentecostals, the cults and to the Purpose Driven, ALPHA modern music-pumped modern Christians - they preach another Jesus, not the real Risen Christ! A description of today's modern Christian can be found in II Timothy 3.
I do not believe we are to follow
Jesus' example from the Gospels. I don't believe we are to follow
in His gospel footsteps; those footsteps were for the Jews to follow -
not the Gentiles. We, as Gentiles and now Church of God / Christians,
are to follow Paul - and Paul will teach us all that the RISEN Christ taught
to Paul as our apostle.
We Understand the Differences of the Severity of God vs the Goodness of God
The severity of God was a fear during the gospel bible days and will be again during the Tribulation. However, today, through the teachings of Paul from the Risen Saviour, we are to respond to God, as a reasonable service, to learn to love God because of His goodness, forbearance and long suffering. It is a true Scriptural teaching that is not heard in churches today. Modern Christians today know very little about the True Living God. They worship an unknown God - and have no clue about the truth today. Romans 2:4; Romans 11:22; Acts 17:22-28.
We Teach and Preach the Ways of Paul ONLY.
The ways of Paul are to be taught in every church - and they will be in our internet church. I Corinthians 4:17 - For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.
We 'Try' to Walk in Sound Doctrine
There is still a 'walk' for which we are to strive, as a Christian. This walk is found in Timothy and Titus - not in the gospels, beatitudes, etc. nor from the apostles such a Peter, John, Jude, James, etc. It is our reasonable service (Romans 12:2) and is to be preached and taught with all authority - the authority of the King James Bible, not from the authority of the local church, pastor, etc. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee. Titus 2:15
If you are puzzled about these statements so far, please don't throw us away yet...
... you can read my sermons and studies on the website to see the details of what it is I am talking about!
You Can Receive a Scriptural Understanding of Music in Your Daily Lives as Well as in Church
As an added bonus, please note that I am a former music teacher and have written and preached many sermons and Bible studies on the crumbling of music in our churches today. We sing the old hymns - we will sing no modern wishy washy cartoon-oriented fableistic spiritual songs.
I see today that just about all churches
have the flesh being hyped by their music, whether it be hillbilly, modern
gospel or even 'classical' - they are either performances or rah rah sessions.
We are aware of the Deception of Images vs Words
I also preach hard against 'images' such as Bible videos that portray a visual image of Christ, etc. I am totally against the Passion of the Christ and as well as Chick's movie on the Light... Images & music has taken over final authority from the Bible in most churches - including many of the Bible Believing brethren. Most if not all of the kids movies and video bible studies are worldly doctrine from the course of this world - with worldly music - including Patch the Pirate and Veggie tales, etc.
We need to be taught words - we need
to preach words - NOT IMAGES! Our kids still need to be taught words,
not pictures and music.
Bonus I - We are Ok with Guns for a Christian
I also enjoy guns - I use guns - I shoot guns - I often carry a gun - legally, of course! I am a supporter of being able to defend our families and church property, etc. Yes, guns are ok for Christians to have and use - and even personally conceiled or outward carry!
I am not seeking that "perfect" person for our website church,
but I am seeking one who is willing to learn to magnify the words of God and follow the right gospel!
We are Not Caught Up in the Local Church / Pastoral Authority Deception!
By the way, I also don't use the word "plant.' I believe and preach that the body of Christ is the true church - the invisible and universal church - call it what you want, but that is the 'organism' - the body of Christ - someday to be the bride. We are scattered all over the world these days and the only way for us to be together as brethren is through the Local Church - the Body of Christ through the Internet.
The local church 'assembly' is NOT the church that the gates of hell will not prevail against! The local church is an organization - an assembly - and I believe it to be biblical. However, I am not about to support any church who will be putting the church above the Book. In the West, they are called Briders. In the other parts of the country, I call them Catholic Baptist baptists! To those catholic baptists, the pillar is being lifted above the truth.
So - we turn to the internet for
our 'church family.'
We are No Longer a Baptist Church
It seems that when I was compared to the infamous Baptist Distinctives, now called Biblical Distinctives by more and more pastors, I eventually didn't do well. As a result, on March 1, 2008, I dropped the name Baptist. We are King James Bible Church - a church on the internet - a church family that believes and uses ONLY a King James Bible - a church that strives to learn and follow Paul only as our only apostle. We look to Ephesians 4 as our church purpose, not Acts 2.
FYI: We are not hypers; we are not Mid-Acts; we are not Pauline; we are not trying to tweak Paul's Epistles by trying to divide the book Acts, etc.; we are not reformed or whatever... we are simply Bible Believers that are returning back to the final authority of the KJV Bible. We continue to see God take the religion out of us - day by day. It is so refreshing! Difficult at times, but worth the challenge.
We Despise 'Religion'...
We are seeking to learn all we can about the goodness of God

will be glad you did!
