Poisonous Christianity

Poisonous Preachers
Poisonous Christianity. 
Toxic Teachings. 
Messengers of Deceptions.
Tickets to HELL stamped "HEAVEN"

Where can I find the hyper-grace Church in the New Testament?

I'm looking for a cool, hip, culturally-savvy, swag, or with-it Church that defended its carnal, worldly indulgences as if God was actually pleased with their love for temporal things and wanted them to indulge even more.

It is not there.

I'm looking for a preacher in the New Testament who was addicted to sports, hobbies, investments, or a high lifestyle; who was known in public as a cool trend-setter.

He is not there.

I am looking for scriptures about high-rolling, multimillionaire Apostles. Not there.

If I visit the Holy Land, where will I find the ancient lavish edifices of the Early Church? Nowhere.

Where are the historic sites where the Early Church pastors had their mansions? Non-existent.

Where in the writings of Josephus, the historian, will I find records of the luxury chariots owned by Peter, James, John or Paul? Sorry. Didn't have any.

Is there any museum that exhibits the high-end designer fashions worn by Mary, Elizabeth, Anna, Martha, Priscilla, Lydia, Lois, Eunice, Phebe or Dorcus? Of course not. Don't be ridiculous.

Where in the Bible are the painted-up, jeweled-up, hyped-up thunder-mommas of the Early Church? All I can find is two JEZEBELS. One in the Old Testament. One in the New. Both were just alike: equally wicked and full of the devil. God cursed both of them.

What, if anything in the Bible, suggests that the early ministers had first-class travel tickets or stayed in five-star hotels? (Ask Paul to rehearse the "perils" chapter to you: 2 Corinthians 11.)

What in the Bible suggested in any way that the Apostles had big expense accounts, or entertained lavishly, or ate grande cuisine? Are you kidding?

Where is the Church, synagogue or home Bible study group where any New Testament saint taught financial prosperity seminars.

They are NOT there, and for good reason.
Saints of God do not live or behave that way.

There is absolutely NOTHING even VAGUELY resembling that in the New Testament Church.


Where is a SAINT in the New Testament who owned or boasted of a palatial home?

Where is a PREACHER who spent his days ranting against obedience, and holiness, and godliness, and promising blessings, blessings, blessings and NEVER rebuking, never reproving, never admonishing the saints? There is not ONE.

Where is the New Testament preacher who hated doctrine? NOT ONE.

Name ONE New Testament figure who was ANTI-Pentecostal, who forbade speaking in tongues, or condemned anyone for speaking in tongues, or even mocked speaking in tongues?

Where is a single event in the Bible where divine healing was tied to financial contributions?

Who is the New Testament preacher who encouraged giving for selfish gain in return?

Where is the TESTIMONY of ANYONE in the New Testament who became wealthy because of an act of faith?


The Apostles LAID DOWN THEIR LIVES for Jesus. 
They FORFEITED their lives for Him. 
They lived SACRIFICIALLY for Him.  

NONE of the Apostles ever recanted or renounced their belief that Jesus was God incarnate, nor did they ever soften their message to repent, be baptized in Jesus' name and to receive the Holy Ghost, speaking in tongues. 

To the day they died, their consecration to Him never diminished.

Neither Jesus nor the Apostles were ever vain, materialistic, money-hungry, flamboyant, arrogant, or worldly-minded. 

This is no time for us to give in to a perverted gospel
This is no time to water down the true Gospel. 

It's time to take a BOLD STAND like never before, against ALL the phony, carnal, worldly, even demon-possessed preaching and singing freaks that the world is now full of.

Nothing even remotely resembling that stuff is recorded in the Bible.

What we see RIGHT NOW is a modern phenomenon
that was PROPHESIED by many of the ancient prophets:

"But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in DAMNABLE HERESIES,

...And MANY shall FOLLOW their PERNICIOUS ways;
by reason of whom

And through covetousness shall they with FEIGNED WORDS make merchandise of you:
whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not,"
2 Peter 2:1-3.

"Evil men and SEDUCERS shall wax worse and worse, DECEIVING, and BEING DECEIVED," 2 Timothy 3:13.

"For men shall be LOVERS OF THEIR OWN SELVES, COVETOUS, BOASTERS, PROUD, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce,



Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: FROM SUCH TURN AWAY,"
2 Timothy 3:2-5.

"Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth," 2 Timothy 3:7.

"Ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 

For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, UNGODLY MEN, turning the GRACE of our God into LASCIVIOUSNESS [licentiousness; lewdness; unrestrained by law; disregarding rules; going beyond customary bounds or limits], and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

And here is a warning to those who put their trust in the FALSE ETERNAL SECURITY, Once-Saved, Always-Saved doctrine:

I will therefore put you in remembrance, though
ye once knew this, how that the Lord,  
having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, 
afterward destroyed them that believed not.

And the angels which kept not their first estate,
but left their own habitation,
he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness
unto the judgment of the great day.

Even as Sodom and Gomorrha,
and the cities about them in like manner,
giving themselves over to fornication,
and going after strange flesh [homosexuality],
are set forth for an example,
suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh,
despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.

...these speak evil of those things which they know not:
but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.


for they have gone in the way of Cain [false worship],

and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward [mercenary; money lust],

and perished in the gainsaying of Core [rebellion against God-given authority].

...clouds they are without water, carried about of winds;
trees whose fruit withereth,
without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; 
wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. 

And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying,

Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
To execute judgment upon all,
and to convince all that are ungodly among them
of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed,

These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts;
and their mouth speaketh great swelling words,
...remember ye the words which were spoken before of
the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;

How that they told you there should be
MOCKERS in the last time, 
who should walk after THEIR OWN UNGODLY LUSTS.
These be they who separate themselves [from the saints],
SENSUAL, HAVING NOT THE SPIRIT [anti-Pentecostal]," Jude 1:1-19

"For MANY DECEIVERS are entered into the world [evil spirits entering men]..."

(At the core of all these deceivers and deceptions is poisonous false doctrines.)

"Whosoever transgresseth,
and abideth not in the DOCTRINE of Christ,
[God in Christ - the Oneness of God]  HATH  NOT  GOD."

The TRINITY doctrine is the BRAND of ancient Roman Catholicism - the "Great Whore" of Revelation 13-18. Those who preach and teach Roman doctrines are the harlot daughters of the "Mother of Harlots." The entire lot of them are doomed. The prophets prophesied their violent destruction (Revelation 17-18).

"...If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine,
receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds," 2 John 1:7-11.

"There be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

But though we, or an angel from heaven, 
preach ANY OTHER GOSPEL unto you
than that which we have preached unto you,


As we said before, so say I now again,

unto you than that ye have received, 


For do I now persuade men, or God?
or do I seek to please men?
for if I yet pleased men, 
Galatians 1:7-10.

It's time to get dead serious about this Christianity thing.
It's time to utterly cast down all false doctrines, false preachers and false churches.
Get out of them. Stop supporting them. Stop attending them. Stop talking favorably about them.

"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  
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.

But watch (stay awake/alert) thou in all things, endure afflictions, 
do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry," 2 Timothy 4:1-5.

Preach the Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth.
Love it and live it. In Jesus name.

Christian Music Wars

Why are all the old Gospel songs and hymns suddenly anathema - cursed? Why does this generation so despise the Christianity of yesterday? There is demonic arrogance and pride in it. 

It is the fatal Rehoboam syndrome, rejecting the counsel of elders, and making their young peers their counselors. 

"He forsook the counsel of the old men,
which they had given him,
and consulted with the young men
that were grown up with him,"
1 Kings 12:8.

Everything in the Bible tells us to honor our elders, ask for the old paths, don't remove ancient landmarks, and earnestly contend for the faith that was once delivered. The only real hope for this generation is to reconnect with the faith of their fathers. To reject the old paths is wicked, and is ultimately spiritually suicidal.

There is divine continuity in what God does. But a whole lot of Holiness people have rejected their own, and have taken up with pseudo-Christians, and turned against their own. That is Apostasy.

There is a diabolical disconnect between the new generation of "Christians" and the real roots of the authentic Pentecostal experience. This generation has never heard and does not know the power and anointing of the Holy Ghost that was upon earlier generations of Pentecostals; and on their preaching and their singing. They make mockery of things they know little or nothing of. Many of our children have never heard our preaching or our singing. They don't know why we believe what we believe and do what we do. They don't know who the patriarchs and elders of the last generation were, and don't know the mighty signs and wonders and miracles that followed them because of what they believed and lived by. If they did, they would realize that the old path was a good path.

"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways,
and see, and ask for the old paths,
where is the good way, and walk therein,
and ye shall find rest for your souls
But they said, We will not walk therein,"
Jeremiah 6:16.

Satan has declared all-out war on the old paths.  

But I'm on to him, and intend to expose him as the nasty, stinking, Truth-hating, poison-fanged devil that he really is.

I do not for one second believe that the new generation of "Christians" has a more intimate relationship with God than the old-time Pentecostals. That is an enormous deception. There is strychnine in that Kool-Aid.

There is a worldly spirit in much of the new music. Many of the writers and singers of this generation are extremely carnal and worldly people, and their music projects that spirit. I studied the TWITTER timeline of one of the biggest names in Christian music. She had well over 200,000 Twitter followers, but in the latest 125 tweets, she NEVER mentioned God or the Bible; just her concerts, her travel, her sports teams, and FUN, FUN, FUN. Complete vanity. Nothing Christlike. She should be banned from every Christian venue. Her influence is utterly toxic.

It's time to drive the world, the flesh
and the devil out of our Churches.
THIS IS WAR. We must run the world, the flesh and the devil OUT OF THE CHURCH! We must run evil spirits of entertainment, sensuality and mockery off of our platforms.

It is time for us to refocus. We have given ourselves foolishly to fads and fashions in music, rather than in preserving things that are sacred and holy and truly intimate with God. I know I've stirred up a firestorm here, but these things need to be said. Our Churches need to bring back the old hymnals and rediscover sacred music.

I'm not going to equivocate or rationalize about it. We are in denial of the evil forces that are at work in "Christian" music. Someone recently wrote me after visiting Hillsong in Australia, and sensing some very bad spirits in the place. Another person expressed his consternation over the intense sexuality/sensuality of singers in a particular Hillsong video he had seen.

I am sick and tired of our being suckers to these big-time hoaxters. They don't preach the gospel truth, and in fact spend a great deal of their time bashing the kind of things that Apostolic Pentecostal Holiness people believe. Don't think for a second that the Holy Ghost is in that. Yet we devour their music and have turned our Pentecostal Churches into Hillsong substations. I will decry that till there is no more breath in me.
Every kind of Christian music has now been commercialized, plagiarized and corrupted. Carnal, worldly, materialistic people run the Christian music industry. There are essentially NO Apostolic Pentecostal Holiness people at the helm of the Christian music industry. It is an ENTERTAINMENT industry, and as such is no more sacred than the money changers in the Temple that Jesus drove out with WHIPS!! We must return to the innocence, naivete, and sincerity of sacred music, and forever boycott the endless thumping, heart-stopping, sensual, comedic, mockery that comprises the bulk of pseudo-Christian music.

A friend, Craig McCracken, sent me this quote from Stan Moser former head of Word Records, CEO of Star Records, and pioneer and executive of CCM (Contemporary Christian Music). He said, "to be candid, I look at the majority of the music I hear today and I think it's virtually meaningless... There is a growing chasm between CCM and the church; between what's actually happening in the real world of ministry, or even in the music ministry of the church, and what we're doing in CCM." That was in Christianity Today, May 20, 1996. If that was said of CCM THEN... what about now? TIME magazine stated that CCM performers are "indistinguishable, except for their lyrics, from their secular counterparts." 

That is downright abominable.

Modern Christian music is more technically expert, more intellectual, more entertaining, more physically stimulating, more hypnotic, more faddish, and stirs superficial emotions masterfully. 

But it is not deeper, more godly, or more spiritual, nor does it tend toward more holiness or Biblical maturity. It is far more superficial than the older music which tends to have a far more in-depth and comprehensive scriptural message, addressing many more doctrinal matters, and reflects a far more scriptural consecration, self-denial, humility, and genuine submission to the will of God.
In a large percentage of modern "Christian" concerts the music is harder, louder, forceful, pounding, near-heart-stopping. It generates a sensual, physical response before the "gospel" message ever begins. And in fact, if you completely threw out the lyrics so that nobody even knew what the lyrics were, they would still dance and scream and cheer. 

What does that tell you? DUMP IT!!

For God's sake, let's get back to the basics. Turn off the million dollar sound and light show. Dump everybody in the band who spends all their time playing instruments and listening to worldly music, and no time praying and reading their Bible. Anything that even REMOTELY looks like "Dance with the Stars" should be kicked out violently. And I won't even get started on the evils of trance-like chants and lyrics that are repeated over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over. Meaningless lyrics. Rock star Christian celebrities can make one phrase in the Bible sound heavenly while they totally ignore and utterly REFUSE to live by hundreds of others. They are devil-paid phonies.

We have fallen into a hellacious trap of believing that if the whole crowd is jumping up and down and going wild, that there is a spiritual revival going on. But I just don't buy it, and I know a lot of other people who don't buy it either.

There are literally thousands of wonderful Gospel songs that are doctrinally sound. It is easy enough to look through the lyrics and toss out a song that has unscriptural lyrics. But as many - and more - of the new songs are heretical, with the false doctrines of eternal security, unconditional love, hyper-grace, and worldly prosperity occurring again and again. And that says nothing of the inappropriate raw sensuality and hard-driving physicality of so much of it. Most pastors and worship leaders pay little or no attention to those hazards. We've GOT to put the brakes on that kind of stuff.

Let's just start over. Find a praying, holy-living, God-fearing singer. Hand him or her an old hymnal. Give him or her free choice of 300-400 songs. Learn it and sing it with NO showmanship. No phony gyrations. No phony screaming and hollering. No 125-decibel bleeding ears. No wall-shaking drums. Just sing a good, godly song for Jesus, to Jesus. And see what happens.

Can anybody tell me why not?

It's All For That Crown

I did not come into Pentecost as the son of a big-name Pastor. I did not have the sponsorship of dignitaries in high places. I was not well-moneyed or well-connected. I did not have a Master's Degree in anything.

I came from a background of religious confusion. I had changed churches, denominations and even been an atheist for a while because all the religion I had been exposed to left me troubled and doubting.

To this very day, the big names won't touch me. They are skeptical of me. When I converted to Oneness Apostolic Pentecost, I came in like a barnstormer. It was the most exciting thing that had ever happened to me. I loved the Oneness, Jesus' name doctrines. I loved holiness with a passion.

And I had lots of first-hand experience with Truth's competitors  - those who preach and teach contrary, unbiblical doctrines - so I decried them vehemently. That unnerved a lot of people (and still does). Made them want to stay back from me. Lots of Pentecostals at that time were softening their convictions and compromising their doctrines, so the kind of stuff I was preaching was NOT what they wanted to hear. (Many of them have departed from the Truth since those days.) And to this day, a lot of my brethren refuse to trust me. They just think I’m too controversial.

Consequently, my 30+ years in Pentecost has not been easy. Satan has fought me like the Beast that he is. He has tried to kill me, destroy me, slander me, break me, stumble me, ruin me, and take everything that I have, over and over again.

The ministry that I have today was built with a giant bulldozer. I have bulldozed against all odds to reach multitudes of unregenerate lost souls. And by the grace of God, I am reaching and teaching daily Apostolic Bible studies to multitudes of subscribers and readers in virtually every nation and island of the earth every single day via an extensive Internet ministry. I press on. By the grace and help of God, I now preach to more people in a single day than a lot of preachers preach to in their lifetimes.

I think there is a lesson for all of us in this.

If you want to do the will of God, first of all you have to have a real relationship with God that is not diminished when men won't support you, and when slanders and rumors own the day. You have to persevere even when you are alone and nobody is paying attention. You have to pray and fast and cast out devils just about every day of your life.

But if you will press on, following nothing but the pure Word of God and the fresh leading of the Holy Ghost, God and His angels will direct your path. Doors will open. Ears will hear. Hearts will follow.

When all of this is finished, there will be a crowning day when every Child of God who ever lived will have to stand in silence as the King of Kings Himself places a crown on my head, and in the hearing of a multitude that no man can number, He will look directly into my eyes and say,

The Crown of Life
"Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord," Matthew 25:23.

That is the only recognition that really matters, and it should be all that we really need.

Some of you have had similar experiences. If you are in any kind of similar place today, take heart. You were born to serve the Lord, not men. And if you will be faithful to HIM, He will give you the Crown of Life that fadeth not away.

“Hold fast that which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.”

Never forget.

It's all for that Crown.

God bless you.
