We know that Jesus said the tares (unsaved) would grow among the wheat (saved), but we must NEVER make the dire error of accepting the tares (as if they are wheat). Matthew 13:29-30, “But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.” The Lord has chosen to leave the saints (i.e., His redeemed children) in the world. We live among the unsaved (the tares). There are tares (unsaved people) in every church! The tares oftentimes bring damnable heresies into the church; such as, baptismal regeneration (water baptism for salvation), turning from sinful ways for salvation, following Jesus as Lord for salvation, et cetera. A faithful Christian exposes these satanic lies!
Proverbs 11:2, “When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.”
Churches are so backslidden and apostate that they don't receive a person who contends for the faith. They reject him, like Harvest Baptist Church on Guam rejected me. When the senior pastor of Harvest responded to my sincere and humble requests to come back to the church in 2017, he spelled my name with a lowercase “d.” That is disrespect and I kindly told him so. I showed him respect in my e-mails, but it was a one way street. The ecumenical pastor apparently thinks he is better than me. It's bizarre, but Christianity is being driven underground! On the face of things in Europe, Australia and the United States, they look like Christian nations—there are plenty of churches—but when one digs deeper, when one really IS a Christian, and wishes to make a stand for the Christian faith, one quickly finds apostasy and rejection. Hundreds of thousands of churches today (and that includes many corrupted independent Baptist churches), have multiple plans of salvation [i.e., Calvinism (tares) and the Gospel (wheat)]. Churches that promote Lordship salvation are satanic cults, not churches! Churches that promote Dr. John MacArthur might as well promote Herbert Armstrong, Joseph Smith and Charles Russell! These ungodly false prophets all teach partial faith in Christ plus something else! The Gospel excludes ALL human effort and self-righteousness!!!
A faithful Christian exposes the Devil's counterfeit Bibles. Some people no doubt are upset with me for exposing Bob Jones University and Harvest Baptist Church on Guam by name, but they are helping the Devil by promoting corruptible seed. In fact, they are helping damn people to Hell by promoting corrupt perversions of the Bible, which redefine repentance from a simple “change of mind” (Greek: metanoeo) to a complicated change of life instead. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again, and that is what the new Bible perversions are doing!!! Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” It is utterly disgusting what is going on in the churches today! The truth doesn't matter anymore to churches and Bible colleges!
