People Will Tolerate Religion, But Not The Truth

2nd Timothy 4:1-4, “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; 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.”

People will tolerate just about any system of beliefs nowadays except Biblical Christianity. The name of Jesus is offensive to most people. A lot of people will talk about God; but never mention the precious name of Jesus. People will tolerate religion; but they will not tolerate the Savior. The reason is because religion elevates mortal man as their authority.

However, Biblical Christianity elevates the God-man, Jesus Christ. The heathen world will not tolerate the Son of God, the Christ (John 15:19). People are embracing religion today, because there is no Final Authority.

Having said that, one of the biggest cults today is Pensacola Christian College (PCC). I moved from the island of Guam in 2021 to Pensacola. My first choice of church to visit was none other than PCC's Campus Church. I was deeply hurt the first time I contacted their incompetent shameful senior pastor, Jeff Redlin, who took the liberty to scold me for mentioning that I hoped to find a wife at Campus Church. The guy didn't even know me. He had never ate a meal with me. He never offered once to pray for or with me. Pastor Redlin had no right or business belittling me, when he doesn't even know who I am. I say that to his utter shame.

Furthermore, he falsely accused me, scolding me for coming to a big church to find a wife. But I had never stated that was why I came to church, as ASS-U-med that. I realized that quickly that Jeff Redlin has the mentality of an eight year old spoiled brat. To no surprise, it didn't even take 3 months for him to drive me our of Campus Church, because of his ongoing mistreatment of me as a human being, and a hurting divorced person. There is no love at PCC, only a hateful self-righteous intolerance and bigotry toward anyone who dares to question their doctrine or methods in the cult.

I did question their doctrine, and for good reason. On July 21, 2021 I heard incompetent assistant pastor, Timothy Zacharias, teach thousands of cult members at a Wednesday night evening service, that repentance requires a change of behavior to prove that you are saved. I was disgusted by what I heard, as I sat their physically in the pews of Campus Church. The next morning I contacted their competent senior pastor, Jeff Redlin, about the matter. To no surprise he 100% defended Tim Zacharias and said the PCC camp believes that repentance results in a change of behavior. Folks, that is damnable heresy!

God authored one Book, the Holy Bible. In that wonderful Holy Book, God made two great divisions of Old and New Testaments (or, respectively, LAW and CHRIST, or GRACE). The sole function of the LAW in salvation is to give humanity THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN. Romans 3:20, Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. And then the LAW brings lost sinners to CHRIST to be saved by grace through faith alone. Galatians 3:324-26, Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”

I have just shown you dear reader THE TRUTH from the inspired Word of God. The Law was never intended by God to be kept as a prerequisite to being saved by faith. Yet, that is the exact heresy being preached by 90% of preachers, pastors and clergy today in churches, Bible colleges, in prisons, in rescue missions, in the military and on foreign mission fields. These lying preachers all say that faith in the Gospel (Good News) Jesus Christ is not enough to get to Heaven; but in addition, they all wickedly teach that you must first “turn away from your sinful ways” to be saved. What they are effectively preaching is that YOU must make an effort to keep the Old Testament LAW to get to Heaven. They are devils behind the pulpit!

A lot of shallow churchgoers have become angry at me for exposing the incompetent Pensacola Christian College (PCC) camp. There is an ongoing spirit of contempt, bitterness and smear campaign against me by PCC cult members and former employees, attacking me on social media because I have the guts to expose their wickedness. In fact, PCC today wickedly bids Godspeed to false prophet Ken Ham. PCC claims to be a liberal arts institution, which one of their former female PCC teachers alleges gives them the right to promote Ken Ham. No, Biblically, it doesn't. 2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

There's another pastor and church in Pensacola that I may need to expose too, that is closely associated with the PCC cult. I can tell you with absolute Biblical authority that anyone who teaches that you must “turn away from your sinful ways” to get to Heaven is pulling on the same rope as the Devil. Pastor Jeff Redlin and Timothy Zacharias are theological liars, who errantly teach, and I quote from their Foundation's Class: “Repentance is a change of mind which results in a change of behavior.” No Sir, that is a counterfeit plan of salvation. No where in the inspired King James Bible are we taught to forsake our sinning to be saved, or to prove that we are really saved. I fully agree with what Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold said:
Lordship Salvation is the unsupportable and unbiblical belief that the performance of good works, the promise of good works, or the evidence of good works, must accompany faith in Christ to establish or provide evidence that such faith has resulted in eternal life.” —Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold, "Jesus versus John MacArthur"
Kindly said, Pastors' Tim Zacharias and Jeff Redlin are theological LIARS!!! They are oh so wrong! They know not what they teach. They do greatly err, not knowing the Scriptures. RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!!


PCC leadership lives under the delusion that they are doing everything right, and are pleasing to God, as did the foolish Laodicean church in Revelation 3:15-17; but Jesus truthfully called them “miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked” (Revelation 3:17b). WORKS has absolutely nothing to do with going to Heaven, yet Ken Ham and his employees at his Answers-In-Genesis ministry preach another gospel, which requires WORKS. So why does PCC wickedly support, honor and invite ken Ham to speak at Campus Church and PCC? It is because they are ungodly at Pensacola Christian College (PCC).

I actually attempted to reconcile and make peace with the PCC leadership in the summer of 2022. I wrote three humble letters to them. PCC totally ignored me. Pastor Redlin replied by banning me from attending Campus Church ever again. That was August 2, 2022. What hypocrites! What hateful and uncompassionate phonies for Christ.

Ken Ham is in error, falsely teaching that you must repent to be saved, by turning away from your evil ways. The Bible calls Ken Ham a LIAR!!! Nobody can get to Heaven based on their WORKS. Turning from your evil way is WORKS (Jonah 3:10). People who are trusting in their WORKS to get to Heaven will NOT go to Heaven. Jesus said this...
Matthew 7:21-23, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord (There's your Lordship Salvation), shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven (cf., John 6:40). Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord (There's your Lordship Salvation), have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Did you see that? They were trusting in their WORKS? You cannot be born-again by trusting in WORKS. What saith the Scripture? Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Turning away from your sinful ways is WORKS! Forsaking a lifestyle of sinning is WORKS! Reforming, being willing to turn from sin, repenting of your sinful ways is WORKS! The Bible says we are saved BY FAITH. Galatians 3:26, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

Jesus Never Said: 'Come After Me' For Salvation, He Said: 'Come Unto Me'

Matthew 16:24, “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”

Matthew 11:28, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

John 5:40, “And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.”

You don't have to COME AFTER Jesus to be saved. That is Lordship! You simply need to COME UNTO the dear Savior by faith to get to Heaven.

It is very important that we always keep discipleship completely separate from sonship.

Put another way, we must keep sanctification entirely separate from justification.

We must keep service completely separate from salvation.

I think Pilgrim's Progress author, John Bunyan (1628-1688) said it best...
“If you do not put a difference between justification wrought by the man Christ without and sanctification wrought by the Spirit of Christ within, you are not able to divide the Word aright; but contrariwise, you corrupt the Word of God, and cast stumbling blocks before the people.” [emphasis added] —Evangelist John Bunyan
Some fool comes along and call this “easy believism” or “greasy grace.” Dear reader, the hardest thing in the world is to put your trust in Christ alone, because it is in our human nature to want to help God. The natural thing is to try to help God. The hardest thing is to by faith put all your trust in someone you've never seen, never met, and you've never met an eyewitness who's seen Him. God is asking you in His inspired Holy Bible to believe on someone who lived 2,000 years ago.

That is why we read in 1st Peter 1:7-9, “That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.That requires faith. Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do.

We're going to be singing “Amazing Grace up there in Heaven, not amazing surrender, amazing Lordship Salvation and amazing commitment. ...

Philippians 3:9, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
We're not going to be singing, “We are worthy,” because we are not worthy. We're going to be singing, Thou art worthy. Revelation 5:9, “And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;” Only JESUS IS WORTHY!!! Jesus is the precious Lamb of God. John 1:29, “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”

Dear friend, if you ever go to Heaven, it will only be because you have ceased from all your own WORKS, and you've completely RESTED in what Christ has already done for you through the cross of Calvary. You get saved by BELIEVING that Jesus did it all for you!

Good works are not the payment for sin, the payment for sin is death.

Salvation is not a reward for the righteous, it is a gift for the guilty!

Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.

Turning away from sinful ways would be a work. Faith puts all of the merit where it belongs, on the object of our faith, Jesus and His work.

If to “repent” means to forsake our sinful ways TO BE SAVED, but Jesus already paid for our sins by dying on the cross, then what are we repenting from?

The true Gospel always points you to CHRIST; a false gospel always points to YOU.

We must stay true to the simplicity of the Gospel!! Repentance regarding salvation is a change of mind from unbelief to belief!!! We must earnestly contend for the faith (Jude 1:3).

Pastor M.R. DeHaan (1891-1965) wrote these helpful words:
"There is a vast difference between coming to Jesus for salvation and coming after Jesus for service. Coming to Christ makes one a believer, while coming after Christ makes one a disciple. All believers are not disciples. To become a believer one accepts the invitation of the Gospel, to be a disciple one obeys the challenge to a life of dedicated service and separation. Salvation comes through the sacrifice of Christ; discipleship comes only by sacrifice of self and surrender to His call for devoted service. Salvation is free, but discipleship involves paying the price of a separated walk. Salvation can't be lost because it depends upon God's faithfulness, but discipleship can be lost because it depends upon our faithfulness." —Pastor M.R. DeHaan, “Hebrews”; Zondervan Publishing House; 1959 (p. 117)
Amen and amen! Pastor DeHaan is absolutely correct! We must always keep discipleship separate from justification. I am going to Heaven when I die, and I 100% know it, because my redemption is not dependent upon my faithfulness or performance; but rather, it is 100% dependent upon God's faithfulness to keep His promise TO SAVE THEM THAT BELIEVE (1st Corinthians 1:21b). Titus 1:2 says that God keeps His promises, because God cannot lie. Titus 1:2, “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

Dear reader, please don't go to Hell. Please don't allow some misguided fool for a preacher, who has sincerely been deceived by the Devil himself, lead you into the fires of Hell. The bottom line is that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay your debt of sin, and mine. Jesus has already paid for everyone's sins with His precious blood (1st Peter 1:18-19). You don't need to ask God to save you, because He is already freely offering you eternal life as a gift. Simply take it by faith, accepting Christ's sacrifice on the cross as payment for your sins, believing that He is risen. The Gospel is not Good News to be lived, it is Good News to be BELIEVED.

Jesus did not say to “Come after Me” to be saved, which would be discipleship and service; Jesus simply said to “come unto Me,” which is justification and salvation. One thing has nothing to do with the other. How you behave as the child of your Mom and Dad has nothing to do with the fact that you are their biological offspring. The same is true with God.

It is in our sinful human nature to want to help God save us, but that is not allowed in God's simple plan of salvation, which is by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone. Galatians 3:26, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Many Bible students go astray when they start applying Bible verses to salvation from obscure passages. For example: Matthew 16:24, “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” Carefully notice that Jesus is speaking to His disciples. Christ is talking here about following Him, not getting saved.

Proof of what I am teaching is found in Matthew 7:21-23, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” They were committed followers of Jesus, as was Judas Iscariot; but this didn't make them born-again children of God.

Every time I hear in the news about a famous person dying, I am curious what was their religious beliefs. Singer Olivia Newton John (1948-2022) died a few months ago. I love her Australian voice and some of her prettier songs. I read online that she is a Christian, but as we all know as true believers, someone claiming to be “a Christian means little, because there are many religious cults who also falsely claim to be Christian (namely, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Roman and Orthodox Catholics, Churches of Christ, Lutherans and Calvinists, to name but a few hellbound groups). All of these aforementioned religious groups are NOT true Christians. That is, they all preach another gospel that does not align with the Word of God.

Unfortunately, I couldn't determine what Olivia believed. I sure hope that she did go to Heaven. Likewise, the queen of England died in 2022. I have my doubts about her being up in Heaven. The reason why is because she was the head of the Church of England, who falsely teach that water baptism is necessary to get to Heaven. No where in the inspired Word of God are we taught to be water baptized to be saved. The repentant thief on the cross never got baptized. No one in the Old Testament was water baptized to get to Heaven.

Furthermore, God authored the Gospel of John for the sole purpose of showing humanity how to have eternal life. John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” Yet, no where are we taught in the Gospel of John to be water baptized to have eternal life. Read for yourself what Jesus said is required to have eternal life in John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.Again and again in the Scriptures, we are simply taught to BELIEVE ON JESUS to be saved.

Dear reader, if you admit to being a guilty sinner deserving of the penalty of Hell (Romans 3:19-23, 6:23; Revelation 20:11-15, 21:8), and you believe that Jesus is the Christ, the only begotten Son of God (John 20:31), and that He died on a cross to pay your debt of sin, believing that He was buried and bodily resurrected three days later (1st Corinthians 15:1-6), you are saved. It is that simple to be born-again by the Holy Spirit into God's heavenly family

The Deadly Counterfeit Gospel Of Evangelist William Lane Craig

Galatians 1:8, “ But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”

On William Lane Craig's ministry website, in the preceding article I shared with you, this is the suggested sinner's prayer that he encourages lost people to pray to be saved...
God, I really need You. I recognize that I am sinful and wretched and in need of Your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus died on the cross to save me from my sins. And right now, in the best way I know how, I open the door of my life and invite you to come in and be my Savior and Lord. Forgive my sins, take the throne of my life, and make me into the kind of person you want me to be. I give myself to you.

Is any of that Biblical? Let's break it down...
  1. Nowhere does the Word of God require for a lost sinner to pray at all to be saved. Jesus said in John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” We are saved by BELIEVING, not by praying. I wish that preachers would stop adding an unnecessary requirement to pray to get to Heaven, when all the Bible teaches to do is to BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (Acts 16:30-31). It is okay to accompany one's faith in Christ with a prayer, but it is very important that soulwinner's always explain to a lost person that praying cannot save them, faith does.
  2. Nowhere does the Bible require a lost sinner to tell God that they need Him to get to Heaven. I mean, if it is not required to be saved, why add it to what a sinner needs to do to be saved? It confuses the person.
  3. Nowhere does the Bible require a lost person to open the door of their life and invite Jesus to come in. - That is false doctrine. A person simply needs to place a childlike trust in the crucified, buried and risen Savior (1st Thessalonians 4:14).
  4. Nowhere does the Bible require a lost sinner to make Jesus their “Lord.” Jesus is the Lord, you don't make Him your Lord. The moment that you accept Jesus as your personal Savior, He automatically is your Lord. Whether or not you acknowledge Him and serve Him as your Lord has nothing to do with receiving God's free gift of eternal life, which is through faith alone in Jesus (Galatians 3:26; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 4:5-6).
  5. Nowhere does the Bible require a lost sinner to “ASK” to have one's sins forgiven. Jesus doesn't forgive sins. You read right. Jesus has already paid for everyone's sins with His precious blood through Calvary's cross. All that God requires for you to be saved, is to to realize that you are a needy sinner and receive Christ's sacrifice on the cross as payment for your sins, believing that Christ is risen.
  6. Nowhere does the Bible require that a lost sinner ask God to take the throne of their life. I am so sick and tired of lying preachers who embellish and add to the Gospel of free grace. If you follow the counterfeit plan of salvation of William Lane Craig, you CANNOT be born-again. God has very plainly laid out the Gospel in His inspired Word, which we read in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4. All of this extra garbage that William is adding is damnable heresy. For a man with an allegedly extremely high IQ of 170, William is a very poor theologian. In fact, William is a hellbound infidel, sad to say. What he is preaching is far from what the inspired King James Bible teaches.
  7. Nowhere in the Bible is a lost sinner required to ask God to make them into the person God wants them to be to get to Heaven. Again, this is more junk theology from William Lane Craig, wickedly adding to God's simple plan of salvation. Since this is a suggested sinner's prayer to be saved, William is clearly implying that some sort of changed life is required at some point to be saved. SHAME on Craig!!!
  8. Nowhere does the Bible require a lost sinner to give them self to God to get to Heaven. Jesus gave Himself as the sacrificial Lamb of God on the cross, to pay our massive debt of sin that we simply could never pay. Eternal life is received, not achieved. Salvation is a TAKE proposition, not a GIVE proposition. God is freely offering you eternal life, and all you need to do if you want it is to TAKE it by faith. Simply take God at His Word as recorded in the Scriptures concerning Jesus Christ, who died on a cross for your sins, was buried and three days later He miraculously resurrected from the dead. BELIEVE IT, oh sinner, and you are now and forever saved (John 3:16; Romans 1:16; 1st Corinthians 15:1-6).
In William's suggested sinner's prayer, I counted 89 words. But in Jesus' plan of salvation, I only counted 8 words... John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.”

The inspired King James Bible teaches something VERY different than what William Lane Craig falsely teaches. The Word of God very plainly defines “THE GOSPEL” (which means “GOOD NEWS”) for us, so there is no doubt or room for speculation...
1st Corinthians 15:1-6, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.”
Dear reader, you alone must decide whom you are going to believe. Will you believe what William Lane Craig preaches—which is a nightmarish and complicated multipoint plan of salvation; or will you simply believe what the Word of God preaches—that all you need is childlike faith in the GOOD NEWS (GOSPEL) that Jesus is only begotten Son of God, the Christ (John 20:31), who died in your place on the cross, was buried and bodily raised up from the dead three days later? I made my decision for Christ in 1980 as a 13-year-old teenager—a decision that I have never once regretted—being born-again into God's heavenly family by faith alone in Jesus (Philippians 3:9). It is so wonderful to be a Christian! It is so wonderful to be able to rejoice, during the worst of times in life, knowing that my name is written in Heaven in the Lamb's Book of Life (Luke 10:20). Jesus is precious!!!

I love that precious phrase which Paul keeps repeating (speaking under the inspiration of God's Holy Spirit)... ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES!!! John 5:39, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” It doesn't matter what William Lane Craig says. It doesn't matter what Dr. John MacArthur says. It doesn't matter what Ray Comfort says. It doesn't matter what I say. All that matters is WHAT SAITH THE SCRIPTURE (Romans 3:4b)?
