God Uses The
FOOLISHNESS Of Preaching To Save The Lost
By David J. Stewart | September 2012 | Updated October 2015
1st Corinthians 1:21, “For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.”
If you don't hear any background music playing in your browser, then click here to hear an MP3 clip from 'K Love Radio' featuring comments by Max Powell of the Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) band THIRD DAY, followed by some creepy music by SWITCHFOOT (the song titled “This Is Your Life”). It's totally satanic! In the clip they claim that a Third Day song convinced a young man contemplating suicide to not do it. The radio station alleges that their ungodly CCM changes lives for God, which is ridiculous. This is the music that allegedly saves people's live. It just shows how apostate our churches have become. People hear shallow testimonies like this and send in their money to the radio station, thinking that they're helping to change people's lives through religious rock music. It's of the Devil. God's way is the preaching of the Scriptures, not changing lives through religious Rock music!
God's method of propagating THE GOSPEL of the Lord Jesus Christ is through Bible-preaching, not through a singing or music ministry as apostates are claiming these days. They don't get anybody saved. The entire Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) industry is a big, sad and pathetic joke! Visit any mainstream recording artist's website and you WON'T find a Gospel presentation. The world is going to Hell and the CCM crowd couldn't care less.
Beware Of 'K LOVE' Apostate CCM Radio
K LOVE Paid CEO $463,420 In 2010 (Ministry for Jesus Christ? I Think Not!)
There's a very popular CCM online radio station whose morning show broadcasts from Winchester, Indiana called, “K LOVE” (klove.com). The non-profit organization originally began in California in 1982 and has expanded nationwide over the years, now being aired on over 400 radio stations in 45 states. To no surprise, the CEO of this “NON PROFIT” group gets paid a sickening annual income of $463,420!!! Charity Navigator reports K-LOVE's CEO Mike Novak makes $463,420, including bonuses, as of 2010. Servant of God? I think not. The music induces a euphoric drug-like effect on the human mind, and then people send in their money. Knock yourself out, but they won't receive a penny from me or any other faithful Christian who loves the Lord. K LOVE aren't serving God. They're not preaching the Gospel. What a joke!
They also broadcast in Nashville, Tennessee; Mobile, Alabama; and now a new station somewhere in New York. The radio station promotes worldly music that's labeled as so-called “Christian” music. There's no such thing as Christian Rock music. All Rock music is of the Devil. The radio hosts talk about changing lives, but music doesn't truly change lives for God. The message proclaimed by the radio show is so lame and apostate. The basic essence of their message is to “follow God.” James 2:19 says even the devils believe in God, but tremble.
I heard one radio host say that the Gospel is free, but getting it to people is not (and then he started begging for money from listeners). I am so sick and tired of hearing apostates talk about how much they desire to get people saved, while paying 6-digit salaries to their executives. They pay Mike Novak $463,420 a year! I've never taken a penny for serving God and never will. That's why I am willing to tell you that the Catholic Church is of the Devil, but they never will (because they'd lose their beloved financial support). Truly, the love of money is the root of all evil as 1st Timothy 6:10 warns.
K LOVE is just another so-called “ministry” from California! I'll tell you, more demonic cults come out of California than any other state! Unfortunately, K LOVE DOESN'T preach the Gospel. They promote CCM music that induces a euphoric effect in people, lifting their spirits, but that doesn't get them saved, nor does it teach them the doctrine of Christ. K LOVE is a religious Rock 'N' Roll radio station.
I love people and am not trying to be unkind. We've just wandered so far away from God in America that people don't even know what the old-time religion was like anymore. Churches today are like psychology seminars, instead of preaching the Word of God as it should be (without compromise)! The meaningful hymns of the faith have been replaced with repetitious chants and euphoric-inducing contemporary music! Today's music is intended to stir the emotions rather than convict the heart. Instead of sound doctrine from the Bible being the primary focus of churches today, increasing church membership is the first priority! Entertainment has become essential or people won't even attend church.
I heard a woman DJ at K LOVE quote 1st Peter 2:2 from the Bible. She used a corrupt modern Bible version, but here's a quote from the trustworthy King James Bible... 1st Peter 2:2, “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.” The woman said that we as babies should desire the nourishment of the Scriptures so we can have “a full salvation experience.” That's NOT the Gospel. The Bible cannot nourish you if you're spiritually dead and have never been spiritually born-again to begin with. Jesus said, “Ye must be born again” (John 3:5-7). How can you feed a baby that hasn't been born? What K LOVE ought to be teaching people is that the way of salvation is found in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
K LOVE butchers the Bible, dishing out wishy-washy, lame, fragments of Scriptures that are so vague that they could never offend anyone. If the Bible is properly taught, it offends people. Jesus warned us in Matthew 7:15 about false prophets (wolves who come to us in sheep's clothing). K LOVE is a wolf in sheep's clothing. If you are dumb enough to think that God is changing people's lives through CCM, then you are deceived. God uses the Word of God to change people's lives. Jesus said in John 3:5-7, “Ye Must Be Born Again!”
Max Powell of Third Day is a phony. Third Day's apostate music is featured in the religious film titled, JOSHUA, written and produced by a Roman Catholic priest. The film exalts the Pope and Roman Catholicism as being a true faith. The film is demonic, as is Third Day and Max Powell. The Bible condemns Roman Catholicism because it teaches salvation through the keeping of sacraments, including the heresy of Baptismal Regeneration.
Uplifting CCM Instead Of Jesus Christ
I've been listening to K LOVE lately, objectively, just to see what it's all about. It bothers me immensely when I hear testimonies of people who were ready to end it all, but then they heard Third Day, TobyMac or Big Daddy Weave singing and the music changed their mind. It's akin to idolatry in my opinion. People are idolizing music for changing their life instead of God's power. I'm glad that the young man decided not to kill himself, but I detest that the radio station revels in such shallow testimonies. It's like they're trying to justify Christian Rock music.
Apostates today attribute way too much power and praise to CCM music and singers. I am disgusted with the entire idolatrous music industry. Take a look at any mainstream CCM artist in concert and watch how the audience reacts to the singers while they're singing. The gleam in the fan's eye is for the entertainer. Check out the photo below of tobyMac being uplifted and praised by his fans (not the Lord's fans)...
Above: Uplifting the CCM god of tobyMac instead of the true God, the Lord Jesus Christ!
John 12:43, “For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.”
It's human nature to look for mentors and heroes. People are natural hero worshippers, which is why losers like Justin Bieber can come out of nowhere and be famous overnight, promoting same-sex marriage and other immoral agendas for the globalist establishment.
What's the difference between CCM artists who receive the praise of idolatrous fans verses a little brat like Justin Bieber?
Beware Of Gay Christian Fraud, Justin Bieber
Above: Homosexual boy-toy and spoiled Brat Justin Bieber, worshipped by heathens worldwide.
The entire music industry, secular and religious alike, IDOLIZE the artist. God doesn't receive the praise. John 12:43 says they sought the praises of man more than of God.
Name any mainstream CCM singer or band who isn't making lots of money by selling their music, concerts and all that goes along with the marketing of music groups. The industry leaders make the bulk of the money, granted, but the singers themselves are very profitable. Only once in the Bible did Jesus become so angry, that He made a whip of cords and drove the salesman out of God's house. Jesus overturned their money tables and freed all their birds and livestock.
Jesus was justifiably angry because greedy men had turned Christianity into a lucrative business. That's all that Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) is about today. It's all about the profits, filthy lucre, the ill-gotten money. CCM is ill-gotten because it exploits the name of Jesus to make money. I'm not trying to be unkind, but our country is dying for THE TRUTH of God's Word, not music. Alex Jones is trying to wake people up with a secular radio show. That's not God's way. K LOVE is trying to help people by using music. That's not God's way either.
God's choice is PREACHING! This doesn't necessarily mean hollering-type preaching from the pulpit, although that's definitely included. You can quietly proclaim something one-on-one to another person, or you can proclaim it to millions of people on the internet. The word “preaching” in 1st Corinthians 1:12 is the Greek word kerugma and means “a proclamation (especially of the gospel; by implication the gospel itself).” To preach is to proclaim something! Alex Jones proclaims everything but the Gospel. K LOVE proclaims love, love, love, but their Gospel is hid. It's a vague message of trusting Jesus, but they leave out the cross (which I will show you in a moment). There is no salvation without the cross upon which Christ paid for our sins.
If any Roman Catholic would be perfectly at home with a radio show, then they're not serving God faithfully. If anyone speaks the truth, Catholics will be offended and most won't listen anymore. Everybody wants money these days, and so they compromise and dip-their-sails in apostasy!!! Jack Van Impe sold out horribly, even praising Pope John Paul II while he was still alive, claiming that he was a faithful man of God. The Pope is a religious monster!!! Jack Van Impe is a fake, an imposter, a prophet for hire!!! Max Lucado and Third Day have been yoking together lately, performing apostate concerts nationwide. Max Lucado teaches a false plan of salvation. Apostasy spreads like cancer once it sets in.
CCM Band, THIRD DAY, Distorts the Biblical Meaning of Being “Born Again”!
K LOVE doesn't care, they just want the money to keep coming in. Ecumenicals don't care about doctrine, they only focus on love (and that brings in all the money from this untoward and adulterous generation of selfish ingrates who will not tolerate God's Word as it should be preached).
2nd Timothy 4:2-4, “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. ”
K LOVE and all the other money-grabbing apostates of this wicked generation cannot speak their minds or else it would spell unemployment. I know they resent being called that (money-grabbing apostates), but it's true. They hide behind the testimonies of listeners who get emotional from the music and then write or call-in to say that Toby Mac changed their life forever. It's disgusting in my opinion. God doesn't honor anything other than obedience to His Word.
Perverted Modern NIV Bible Version Translated By Sodomites
Most Bible versions today are perverted. It's become so rotten in America that even pastors will argue and defend the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible (never mind the two flaming homosexuals that were on the translating board and butchered the Bible). The homosexuals involved with the NIV weren't present just to make suggestions. The CHAIRMAN of the Old Testament committee was a homosexual. The NIV, New International Translation, is straight out of the pits of Hell. The man appointed to be the Chairman of the Old Testament Committee of the NIV Committee on Bible Translation, Dr. Marten Woudstra, was a homosexual. Also, Virginia Mollenkott, who worked as the stylistic editor for the translation, is a lesbian.
Some of Dr. Woudsta's collaborators on the NIV knew about this years ago during the translation process. I'm not just exposing the apostasy of K LOVE, but of THE ENTIRE religious scene in America today. It's all corrupt! The Bible are corrupt! The preachers are corrupt, having become psychologists instead of men of God who preach the Bible.
Pulpit Committees Are Of The Devil
Most pulpits are censored by evil pulpit committees that are afraid of driving people away, so the minister is told how far he can go in his preaching. For example: Many churches will tell a pastor that he can speak kindly about the heresy of works salvation, but he's absolutely forbidden from mentioning the Roman Catholic Church by name. I TELL YOU... THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IS STRAIGHT OUT OF THE PITS OF HELL BENEATH!!! What are you going to do about it? If you're Catholic, I hope you'll repent and get right with God before it's too late!!!
I know a sorry rascal who says he used to be a Baptist, but now he tells everyone that he's a Catholic, having converted to Catholicism for his wife. When he used to be around me he'd call himself a Baptolic (trying to play both sides of the card table). Man, grow some gonads!
The top 5 mistakes of churches today with Pulpit Committees are:
- Having a pulpit committee!
- Having a pulpit committee!
- Having a pulpit committee!
- Having a pulpit committee!
- Having a pulpit committee!
DON'T HAVE A PULPIT COMMITTEE! It's unscriptural. God pity the milquetoast poor excuse for a man who allows other people (or God forbid, a meddling woman) to control what he preaches. It will be a cold day in Hell before ANYONE tells me what I can or cannot preach!!!!!!! My preaching is none of my business either! I preach what God lays upon my heart!!!!!!! I may not be very eloquent, but people know what I'm saying. I may not be a good writer, but people know where I'm coming from. God alone tells me what to preach!
Unsaved Roman Catholics Love Contemporary Christian Music (CCM)
A lot of unsaved religious people listen to the K LOVE radio show, including many Roman Catholics. They need to be told that adding works to faith is a false way that brings damnation. They need to be told that the sacraments cannot save anyone. In fact, adding the sacraments to one's faith means that your faith is in the sacraments instead of solely in Christ. Salvation comes only by faith alone in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus shed His blood to wash away our sins. People need to be told that they are sinners deserving of Hell. This is the message that people need to hear, otherwise how lost sinners be saved?
Any Roman Catholic would feel at home with the music at K LOVE. I know God is grieved with apostates like K LOVE speaking a bunch of mumbo-jumbo junk that doesn't really say anything. What's so wrong with coming right out and saying, YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN! It sounds too religious, that's why! They'd lose listeners! The average person who listens to radio stations like K LOVE are selfish, self-centered and self-righteous... and religious! Go figure!
I heard the song “I Will Follow” by Chris Tomlin on K LOVE. That was the song's entire message, “I will Follow.” Jason Castro sings “Only A Mountain” (which is a great sounding song). As a musician I love all kinds of music. I have to decide not to listen to most music, because it is worldly, like CCM. I detest CCM because it masquerades as being Christian. I have more tolerance for a worldly band than I do for CCM phonies. It's easy to get caught up into K LOVE's music, because music by nature appeals to the emotions.
CCM like all contemporary music can become addictive, but you shouldn't make it a part of your life because these people don't truly serve the Lord Jesus Christ. Biblical doctrine means nothing to them. They don't uphold the King James Bible. All CCM singers use corrupt Bibles. They don't care about doctrinal integrity. CCM's entire philosophy is that love will change the world and that their music is doing that. Thus, they don't value preaching of the Gospel as God's commands, so they DON'T do it. Not one of Christ's Apostles had a singing or musical ministry. They had musical instruments in Bible times, but we don't even once read about them being used to steer people toward God in the Bible.
K LOVE's Ecumenical Wishy-Washy Gospel Message
It's a sick world after all. K LOVE's message is vague, like all ecumenicals. You want something to grab onto, but there's just no handles. Their message is merely to follow God, trust Jesus and surrender your life to God; but they don't say it like it is, as the Bible so honorably does. The Bible is brutally honest, offending the world since it was first given to mankind. We are living in a wicked generation that will not tolerate sound doctrine.
2nd Timothy 4:2-4, “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.”
On their website, K LOVE teaches the following false Gospel in their testimonies section under Prayer and Faith...Question: "Why and how should I accept Jesus as my Savior?" Lisa, MT
Answer: Jesus is not just a prophet, great teacher or moral man. He is God in human form clothed in flesh (John 1:14). His purpose for coming was to instruct us and then to die for our sins. The bible says that all have sinned and fall short of his perfect standard (Romans 3:23). The only just punishment for sins committed against a Holy God is punishment. Jesus came and died in our place so we wouldn’t have to (Romans 5:8). Have you asked Jesus to be your personal Savior? If you want to accept Jesus as your Savior, say the following words to God. “God, I admit I am a sinner but I believe Jesus took my place so I could be forgiven. I receive Your forgiveness and place my trust in You for salvation. I accept Jesus as my personal Savior! Thank You for saving me. Amen!” [emphasis added]
They DON'T mention the cross at all. A cross-less gospel is no gospel at all. The cross must be included if the Gospel message is to be properly preached. Trusting Jesus is NOT the Gospel. The cross upon which Christ shed His precious blood and died must be included.
They DON'T mention the miraculous resurrection of Jesus Christ. Did Jesus stay in the tomb? How can there be salvation without the resurrection? 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 defines THE GOSPEL as the DEATH, BURIAL and RESURRECTION of the Lord Jesus Christ. Many people today believe that a man named Jesus once lived and died, for that is what we all do. But how many people truly believe that Jesus rose from the dead? That's requires a miracle of God. Many people have a serious problem with the truth that Jesus was raised from the dead. Do you believe it? I do! Romans 8:34 teaches that Jesus arose and is now in Heaven seated on the right-hand of the Father interceding for every saint as our High Priest (also see Hebrews 4:15-16).
Remember, every hellbound Catholic believes that Christ died, was buried and rose from the dead; so what's wrong? The problem is that Catholics ADD the keeping of the sacraments to be saved. Plus they require membership into the Roman Catholic Church (RCC), which they teach is through water baptism. It's all a lie of the Devil.
May I say, the true Gospel message EXCLUDES all forms of self-righteousness. No one will dare say this on the radio these days for fear of offending Roman Catholics. If you add even one work to faith, you will go to Hell forever. I once worked with a devout Roman Catholic who said he trusted in both faith and works to get him into Heaven. He's going straight to Hell if he doesn't repent and place His faith in the Gospel alone.
The simple Gospel message is that Christ died, was buried and rose up from the dead three days later. If you receive the Gospel as payment for your sins, then you are redeemed and on your way to Heaven; but if you ADD church membership, water baptism, holy mass, confirmation, prayer, good works, committing your life to God, surrendering to Jesus, forsaking the world, turning over a new life, forsaking sinful bad habits, confessional, or anything else, then you ARE NOT SAVED and are headed for the Lake of Fire.
Titus 3:5, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.” Notice that the Bible speaks about the washing of REGENERATION (Ye must be born again), and not water baptism here. A Christian has been born anew by the Spirit of God. Water baptism is a road to Hell if you add it to your faith. Baptism gets you wet, period. A lot of people have baptism on the brain. You'd better forsake that nonsense and trust only upon the cross of Calvary and the blood that Jesus sacrificed for our sins. Ephesians 2:13, “But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ” Thank you Lord!
Also, notice that they won't mention Hell because that might offend someone. They mention punishment, but not Hell. If you have a problem with the doctrine of Hell, then you have a big problem. If you don't think you deserve to burn in Hell, then why would you need a Savior? Jesus came to pay for your sins (and mine) so we wouldn't have to go to Hell. The idea that people must be lured into Christianity by withholding the truth from them is unbiblical.
Apostasy has overtaken America. Most of today's CCM is a combination of Rock and Country music. The music creates a euphoric effect in the listener, fitting for the religious yuppie crowd perhaps. The music is targeted at young Caucasian adults mostly, which leads them to follow apostate ministers like Max Lucado, Billy Graham and the Pope (all ecumenical). It's all about the money. Not one mainstream CCM singer or band doesn't sell their music. It's all for sale! That's what the entire music industry is all about... money!
Contrary to what most people have been taught, there will not be a one-world religion in the end times; but rather, the different religions of the world will be led to tolerate one another, adapting, uniting and sharing common beliefs in the name of love. But it's not God's unconditional love that speaks the truth on risk of persecution and prosecution. It is a synthetic type of mental tolerance for heresy, sin and apostasy. Literally, the world is going to Hell in the name of love.
When you truly love someone, you tell them the truth, which usually offends them, and then you deal with the outcome whether it be good or bad. I am one of the most hated people on the internet because of my uncompromising preaching against sin, evil and heresy. I simply speak the truth without apology. That is what pleases God (Ephesians 4:25; Titus 1:10-13; Romans 16:17; Ephesians 5:11; Psalms 94:16).
K LOVE Promotes Demonic Walt Disney Church Of Christ
The Church Of Christ requires water baptism for salvation, as well as literally ceasing from sinful bad habits in order to get to Heaven. Forsaking one's sinful bad habits is the FRUIT of genuine repentance, not a part of the ROOT of saving faith. It's called “The Main Gate Church,” Walt Disney's official church.
I'm an Independent Fundamental Baptist and proud of it, but that's not taking me to Heaven. I'm going to Heaven because I am wearing the imputed righteousness of my dear Savior, Jesus Christ (Isaiah 61:10; Romans 4:5-6; 2nd Corinthians 5:21). Jesus died, was buried and rose from the dead. 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 says these three things compose the Gospel. Jesus paid for my sins with His literal, physical, precious blood (1st Peter 1:18-19). I have received the Gospel as payment for my sins; therefore, I am a born-again Christian, born anew by the Spirit of God. I was born-again by the seed of God's Word (1st Peter 1:23).
Isaiah 61:10, “I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.”
Isn't that a beautiful Scripture! The Church of Christ teaches a false plan of salvation. It's sickening what they're doing at Walt Disney. These wicked people host national GAY DAY in support of the Homosexual Community. They've been mocking the Word of God with their evil Bible theme park for years. It's disgusting. Now they have a satanic church for all the different so-called Christian denominations. It is satanic because it teaches a false plan of salvation. The Church of Christ perverts the Gospel.
Max Lucado and other ecumenicals are promoted by the New World Order because they attempt to unite the various religious denominations through watered-down wishy-washy religious basics. Catholics are going to Hell because no one loves them enough to warn them of God's judgment! I CARE and I'm warning everyone!!! I often feel lonely, wondering why more born-again Christians don't take a firm stand against the Devil, false religion and the apostasy of this wicked generation. The big excuse is that you'll never win anyone to Christ by being offensive. The last thing I want to do is be unkind to anyone, but if the truth offends you and I can be used by God to lead you to Jesus Christ by offending you, then amen for that!
K LOVE shares testimonies from people who say that the music on the radio station saved their life. That's sweet, but that's not salvation. It's like getting hit by a car and someone walks over to you and starts playing music on a guitar. That's sweet, but you need a hospital. K LOVE does not preach the truth, they hinder people from finding it. They use perverted Bibles, don't teach the doctrine of Christ (Godhead, deity, virgin birth, blood sacrifice, Christ's sinless life, et cetera), they promote worldly music and living, and only recommend ecumenical books and ministers. It's all inoculating people from finding the real thing. It's a joke to hear someone saying that a religious song saved their life. Is that how they attempt to justify paying K LOVE's CEO $463,420 a year? That's disgusting. A servant should receive a servant's salary. Clearly they are serving themselves and not the Lord Jesus Christ.
Music stirs emotions and people are going to call-in (or e-mail) to the radio station that the music changed their life. That's normal and to be expected. But lasting change comes from obeying the Scriptures. Many people are looking for a religious experience or an uplifting inspirational song, but you need Bible-preaching! Titus 1:3 teaches that God uses PREACHING to manifest His Word, not CCM. Music inspires people, but it does not convert the soul as does the Word of God. Psalms 19:7, “The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.” There are CCM religious people walking around like zombies, whose minds are saturated with worldly music. Instead, Psalms 1:1-5 teaches for Christians to meditate in God's Word. CCM hinders people from pondering the Word of God instead. God wants us to think about the Scriptures throughout the day, not Third Day or TobyMac.
People are praising a radio station for changing their life with music. What a sad testimony of the shallowness of this warped generation. What you ought to be doing is searching the Scriptures instead of listening to some slack-wearing feminist who quotes from corrupt Bible versions. They're not going to say anything to offend anyone. Roman Catholics need to get saved, because their priest is a liar who cannot absolve their sins. The pope is a dope and has no hope. Give me 5 minutes on their radio show and they won't have any listeners. I'll tell all the Roman Catholics that they've been lied to. I would plead with people to abandon the prisonhouse of Catholicism.
You Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses and Seventh-day Adventists need to find God. You're all hellbound in your sins and false religion. All of the CCM is watered-down, worldly, and doesn't say anything concerning the Doctrine of Christ. 2nd Timothy 4:3, “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.”
People don't say that the Word of God changed their life; but rather, that the apostate CCM music of Matt Maher, Natalie Grant, Jeremy Camp, Luminate, Britt Nicole, Newsboys or Big Daddy Weave changed their life. Whatever changes they think have happened to them, it's not God working in their heart. God's Spirit ALWAYS works through the Word of God. If someone starts talking about visions and dreams that only they have received, then you know that they are liars. God doesn't speak through visions nor dreams in these Last Days (Hebrews 1:1-2). Most people are caught up in the world's party attitude, but we'll all be gone from the earth within 100 years. The next time you see hundreds or thousands of people gathered together, realize that every single one of them will be dead and gone from the earth within 100 years (most within 30-50 years).
Toby Mac's Ecumenical Message (tobyMac supports the New World Order)
I've been exposing TobyMac as a Christian fraud for many years. The album cover to the left is Toby's new and latest album which just came out on August 28, 2012. Look at the All Seeing Eye. This latest album further evidences who Toby McKeehan serves, that is, Satan! The truth is that the apostate religious people who listen to Toby Mac couldn't care else if he's in bed with the New World Order.
That All Seeing Eye means that Toby is serving the Devil, a part of the forming Beast system of the Antichrist. TIME magazine wrote an article about Toby Mac, promoting him. You don't get promoted by a Communist magazine unless you're on the Devil's side.
Sadly, most young people today don't care. They are knowingly following the New World Order, selling their souls to the Devil. You can hear a short clip of Toby's new album and song, EYE ON IT at Amazon. Please read, New World Order Occult Images In CCM Music! You either want to know THE TRUTH or you don't. It is obvious that Satan is behind the music industry (and that certainly includes CCM). Toby McKeehan (born 1964) is now 47 years old in 2012.
The Bible teaches in 2nd Thessalonians 2:10 that the masses of this world will openly receive the Antichrist when he comes, being taken “with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”
Wow, what an amazing Scripture! This truth is profound. Have you ever heard the old country song which says, “You've got to stand for something, or you'll fall for anything.” Well my friend, if you don't embrace the truth of THE GOSPEL of the Lord Jesus Christ, then you are open game for the Devil to hunt down and kill. Literally, the Bible is teaching that those who don't embrace the truth of the Word of God, will instead be deceived by the Devil.
We already see this truth evidenced today in the world. Most Jews REJECT the Messiah, Jesus Christ. And so instead they are all waiting within the Judaism false religion for another messiah, the Devil's messiah, and he will be the Antichrist. TobyMac is a loser in God's eyes, leading youth into apostasy and the New World Order. Christ is secondary to TobyMac's fame. When TobyMac walks out on stage, it's all about Toby. The entire idolatrous CCM industry is of the Devil.
I've read interviews where TobyMac (real name: Toby McKeehan) says his goal is to break down barriers of culture, religion and race, bringing everyone together in unity.
TobyMac says, "If we are gonna be that city on a hill, we have to be a diverse city" (see below). Please read The Danger of Diversity. God commands us to SEPARATE from the ungodly (2nd Corinthians 6:14-17), tobyMac wants us to unite...
“If we are gonna be that city on a hill, we have to be a diverse city.” — TobyMac
TobyMac wants to start a revolution, one that will sweep through cities and erase the divisive lines that keep people and cultures apart. Holding up his microphone like a fist in the air, this Grammy-winning artist sees his opportunity in the society-shaping power of music. As a true artist, it's not his impressive sales heights or awards that fire up his voice, but rather it's an unwavering quest to make songs that connect and inspire all who hear them. Crafting the perfect songs to match his vision, TobyMac ignites the first spark with Welcome to Diverse City.
Accentuating his celebrated career with dc talk, TobyMac made his solo bow in 2001 with the Grammy-nominated Momentum. The disc marked a return to TobyMac's hip-hop roots, the very style with which dc talk first emerged, and yet the rapper-singer once again finds himself branching out from this base. As the title implies, Diverse City is an album bursting with musical flavors and nuances, and yet this stylistic blend finds unity through faith as it's threaded through a melding urban rock and hip-hop frame. Reaching into a world of different sounds and cultures, this album knits it all together with a genuine artist's touch.
When the world talks about “diversity,” they are telling us to tolerate the sins of homosexuality, witchcraft and abortion. Ephesians 5:11 commands us to, “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” The Devil is a liar... when his children speak of diversity, they really mean sinful compromise.
I don't advocate being unkind to anyone, but homosexuality is a sin that should not be taught to public school children as being "normal." God calls it an abomination (Leviticus 20:13). Homosexuality is VERY ABNORMAL and a violation of God's Holy Word.
"TobyMac wants to start a revolution, one that will sweep through cities and erase the divisive lines that keep people and cultures apart."
The Bible teaches the exact opposite, God segregated mankind at Babel
(Genesis 11:7-9) to safeguard humanity against a repeat of the evils in
Genesis chapter 6 before the flood. Yet, Jesus foretold that in the End
Times the heathen world would once again return as it was in the days of
Noah (Matthew 24:37-39).
God's Method Is Preaching, Not Singing
Please don't allow Satan to deceive you with imposters like K LOVE and Tobymac. God's chosen method of getting people saved is through the foolishness of preaching the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is preaching, and not singing that gets souls saved. We are living in wicked times. People have become so evil in their hearts. Sexual immorality is everywhere. Drugs, alcohol and cigarettes are commonplace. Obesity has overtaken our nation. America has become weak, irresponsible, vulnerable, lethargic and uncaring. People just don't care like they used too. Everyone's afraid of their neighbors, no one trusts each other anymore, and increasingly local police are behaving like crazed psychos. Sin has ruined our nation. Rock 'N' Roll has raised a generation of rebels, drunkards and sexual perverts. K LOVE plays music that parallels the sinful world, sounding like U2, Boston and Smashing Pumpkins. There's not a dime's difference.
It's my hope that perhaps one of the thousands of people who will read this article will start preaching the Gospel as the Bible teaches, for that is God's method of getting people saved. 1st Corinthians 1:21, “For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.”
1st Corinthians 1:21, “...by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.”
Music has never got anybody saved. K LOVE shares letters and testimonies of callers who claim that the music saved their life. It's just an emotional response to the euphoric music. Worldly music is like a drug to the mind. It's a natural response for the mind and body to react to music in an uplifting way, but it's easily a false sense of security in the eye of the storm of life. It's not lasting salvation. Music may give the listener a temporary emotional high, but that's not salvation. What people truly NEED is the permanent changes that are made by the hearing of the Word of God.
We read in Titus 1:3 that God hath revealed His Word through preaching. I was listening to K LOVE for a couple hours one day and realized afterwards that my mind was empty. I had wasted 2 hours listening to some nice music (and it is nice), but I was no better for it. I was the same person. No life changing decisions were made, because nothing meaningful was said. Whereas I thought to myself, I could have listened to a sermon on MP3 instead and my life might have been changed forever. I'd rather listen to preaching than music. My flesh would rather hear the music, of course; but my spirit knows that I can't grow from listening to music. God uses the foolishness of preaching.
Bible-preaching is foolish in the eyes of the unsaved world. Unsaved people laugh and mock at preaching. They are the fools. The world wants to dance, get-down, guzzle their beer, have a good time... just as in the sinful days of Noah (Matthew 24:37-39). I see so many people, especially the younger generation, enjoying life to the fullest, but it's all soon going to come to an end. What are you doing for God? I hate beer! I hate dancing! I hate the world's music!
Do you want to see something disgusting, check out Christian Dance Music. The day I visited this website in September of 2012 they were featuring the music of ZONA (the woman on the album has her head shaved bald). This is what they're labeling as so-called “Christian” these days. It's of the Devil.
I am so glad that I'm a Christian. I rarely go out to eat, because people are becoming so worldly. Restaurants are greedy, charging gratuity even for carrying out. It was never this bad in our country. I rarely go to any restaurant that gouges customers like that. Usually I don't go back (unless their food is worth it). Most aren't. Most places that you go eat these days assume that you drink beer. The waitress told me the other day, you get a beer with this. I said, I don't drink beer. I wasn't even going to thank her. Beer is horrible! I hate beer and everything is stands for!!! People acts like idiots when they drink beer, killing people with their car and hurting the innocent. Americans have proven themselves totally irresponsible when it comes to alcoholic beverages.
I fully expect backslidden and immature believers, and unsaved religious people, to laugh and dismiss my article here. But I am telling you the truth. The Evils Of Contemporary Christian Music (CCM). The great need of this dark hour is preaching preachers, not singing singers! TobyMac is serving the Devil, as evidenced by the All Seeing Eye on his recent album. TIME magazine (a Communist publication) even took notice. The wicked are building a New World Order and want the support of everyone they can find. You can fully expect to see a lot more illuminati imagery on future albums. Since TobyMac is being recognized, it's too tempting for others not to follow in pursuit of worldly fame and fortune.
“Somebody says, 'The thought of Hell is so horrible.' Well, my friend, so is cancer, so is tuberculosis, so is the grave. Someone said, 'I believe sin ought to be punished, but not for eternity.' That's your view, not God's.
Again another says, 'I don't believe in the wrath of God.' Then you don't believe your Bible. The Bible says the wrath of God abideth on the one who doesn't believe in Jesus Christ. He is lost forever.
Now, these things come to us out of the Word of God. The teaching of eternal punishment should give us a hatred for sin. We ought to hate sin. The reason we have changed so much in this day in all of our churches is that we are not hearing much on this subject. Therefore, we endorse sin. We engage in sin. We camouflage the sin in our lives and allow things to go by, instead of hating sin as God wants us to hate sin . . .
The teaching of eternal punishment should give us a passion for the souls of men.”

Are You Resting In The Gospel Of Jesus Christ?
Thankfully, and fortunately, every person is offered the free gift of eternal life and forgiveness in Christ. I can't believe that so many people flaunt God's mercy and grace, even blaspheming the very God Who has given His Son for their sins. Wow! I am not worthy, and neither are you! Can any man truly grasp the greatness of what God has so marvelously done for us? I think not.
There's no other book, nor religion, nor prophet, nor teaching, nor philosophy in existence that can even compare or compete with the awe, greatness, amazement and grand scale of what the Bible reveals; of all that God has done for mankind through the Lord Jesus Christ!!! Oh my friend, whoever you may be, I plead with you... “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him” (Hebrews 2:3). Acts 4:10-12 plainly states that there is NO other name given among men, whereby we must be saved, than the name of JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH!!!
Romans 4:5, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” Repeatedly we are warned throughout the Scriptures that God's salvation is offered freely to mankind (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 11:6; Titus 3:5); paid for by God's gift of His dear Son, and the blood that He shed for us. How much greater then are we insulting God, even trampling underfoot the blood of His covenant, when we ADD anything to it. Don't be deceived, no one who professes to be a Christian is truly saved if they HAVEN'T yet ceased from their own human efforts...
Hebrews 4:10, “For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works...”
Those who teach that faith alone cannot save, but that there must also be human effort—to depart from sin, forsake the world, and surrender to Christ—are NOT SAVED!!! Hebrews 4:10 confirms this! There's a fine line between faith and foolishness, between Heaven and Hell, between salvation and damnation. The dividing line is human effort. Add it and your doomed. Cease from it, and trust upon the Lord, and you're saved! Any attempt to improve mankind spiritually without the Gospel is religious humanism. Don't leave out the cross!!! Jesus DIED, was BURIED and RESURRECTED after three days. That's the Gospel according to 1st Corinthians 15:1-4.
What an awesome God!!! I encourage you whoever you may be to place your total trust in “the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). Christ bore our burden of sin upon the cross, so we don't have to go to Hell forever. Thank you Lord Jesus for dying for my sins!
