Why I Write This Blog

As I’ve said before, every once in a while I think I should stop blogging.  There are a lot of people out there who do a lot of what I do.  But every once in a while, a comment like this one comes through the system:

“Thank you for this blog. My spirit is so grieved because I just recently left this church and I’d been going back and forth about the decision.

I just began to truly get into the Word a little over a year ago, but the Holy Spirit is real and He began to snatch me out of darkness right away! My God, I was so ashamed to realize how blind I was. But I have repented and I praise God for His grace and helping me see the truth about these mega pastors.

TD Jake’s was one of the first the Lord revealed to me as a false teacher and things began to open up for me from there. It just seemed JKJ was involved in some questionable events (ex: Together 2016; The Gathering) and then I learned that TD Jakes his “spiritual teacher” (I never knew that before). These things just weren’t adding up.

Then I began to notice how off base some of the guest pastors were, including Keith Battle who, at a service sometime in late summer 2016 shared with the congregation that he listens to Joel Osteen when he’s feeling down. The man actually said that after Osteen’s sermons he feels ‘All the way up!” (*Which he sang from the pulpit…. btw: All the way up is a secular song by rapper Fat Joe*). Joel Osteen??? Fat Joe????

But the congregation jumped to its feet with excitement and, as we filed out, many spoke of how “that was a good word”!

Then, I began to examine some of pastor Jenkins’ sermons compared to the truth of God. That was so hard to do because I didn’t want to believe that he, too, was “one of them”! God, my heart hurts.

I’m coming to see that there are very few churches preaching God’s truth! So much “leaven”! (Please let me know if there are any good churches in the area who ALWAYS preach the Word in its true context.) Anyway, please keep exposing and praying for all who have strayed from the truth. And I pray more begin to seek the Lord’s Word for the truth rather than blindly digesting what they are fed from the pulpit. These poor souls are perishing and don’t even know it. :(“

Yes, there is a local church in which the Word is preached, in which the elders work at feeding the sheep with care.  That place?   Temple Hills Baptist Church.

They’re working their way through a series of sermons on salvation, what it does, what it means.   You can listen to previous sermons there as well.

By the way – you should stay away, far, far away from FBCG.  God has opened your eyes, don’t tempt Him by running back to the error.  It’s a little like the dog that returns to its vomit (Prov 26:11). I have a couple of friends who know better but remain there anyway.  I fear for their discernment.

    Haven’t you learned anything at all in life that if you can’t say anything nice, then don’t say anything at all. Geez!

      Pray tell, where is that in scripture? And why bother commenting when you haven’t the moral integrity to post your name? Well, as usual, a pew warmer has an opinion that has nothing to do with the BIBLE. You know … that dusty tome sitting in the trunk of your car. 1 Corinthians 5:12-13 states quite plainly that those who are IN the Body of Messiah judge those who are IN the Body of Messiah.

    Well, lawdhavemercy! I suppose, Anonymous, that Elijah should have kept his mouth shut when Ahab and Jezebel, the rulers of Israel at the time, led the nation astray in false worship (I Kings 17-22). I suppose that Jesus, in His mission to reconcile God with humanity and to fulfill the Law and the Prophets, shouldn’t have driven out the moneychangers from the Temple (John 2: 14-16). And I suppose that the apostle Paul was drunk when he wrote: “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” (II Timothy 3: 1-5, NKJV). There are those who are teachers of the Word who teach it falsely and thus make Satan “as an angel of light” (II Corinthians 11:14). These must be exposed and condemned, not coddled.

    Anonymous, it isn’t about saying anything nice, but to listen to the words in the Epistle of Jude and to “contend for the faith” as is mentioned there. But then, I am surmising that you are a professed Christian who knows little of the Word and therefore little, if any, of its truth–or some humanist who “lives and let live”. Either way, you must not feel very sure of your position on this matter, as you have spoken anonymously. If you ARE a Christian, then know that you should speak on such matters with a “holy boldness” (Acts 14:3), for “the righteous are bold as a lion” (Proverbs 28:1, NKJV).

    Melvin, do not be discouraged. Just do what you’re called to do. You never know how many eyes read your posts through sharing, etc. Fight the good fight even though it’s tempting to shut it down. I knooow! Keep on contending for the faith! Keep your eyes on The King!

    Don’t give up brother, take time as you need to, but don’t give up!

    By the way folks, the person who wrote the original comment came to worship with us this past Sunday. That was almost as encouraging as your comments.

    By the way, here’s the video the commenter mentioned. No skin (to speak of) but definitely not the kind of stuff the pastor should be filling his head or serenading the congregation with.
