“Why don’t you just roll up in a ball and die? All you do is complain about other Christians. That’s none of your business – God will take care of them”.
The quote above is typical of the daily “colorful” email that I and other bloggers get (along with emails of encouragement from those who fled false doctrine – and death threats from those who love their pimps and his lies). This is not a paid gig, or a hobby. This blog only exists to shine the light of truth on the enemies of our Sovereign God.
I’ll stop blogging for biblical truth when the pimps, apostates, heretics, and all manner of antichrist stop doing what they’re doing.
I got an email from our brother Steve (aka youtubber hetgow) notifying me of his latest video. Steve was a follower of the cult Fellowship of the Martyrs, a fringe “Christian” commune in Missouri – before he repented before the Lord and started exposing the lies he learned while in that group. For background information, visit this link where our brother Independent Conservative detailed the activities of this cult recently.
Steve even released a video on youtube publicly apologizing to anyone that he hurt as a result of his submission to the false teachers of that cult. That brother went through a lot, and it was only through God’s grace that he saw the truth, repented before the Lord, fled that wickedness, and warns others. In addition to apostasy and heresy, allegedly there were other illegal activities going on in that cult (some of which are being investigated by local authorities).
Steve released the following video exposing FOTM’s practice of “multiple spiritual marriages” – and clearly explaining how to measure everything that you hear against God’s Word:
In the video, Steve said that he “followed blindly” the teachings of this cult that infuses elements of biblical truth with their sinful fleshy theology. I can attest to how dangerous this is – and anyone who has fled a pulpit pimp can do the same. Once you stop seeking the Word of God for direction and start seeking man, then you’ll find yourself in a difficult place (Jeremiah 17:5-6).
Steve biblically details how to expose false teaching and explains in the video’s notes:
I promoted FellowshipoftheMartyrs.com (specifically the teachings of Doug Perry & Chris Evans) without testing what they taught (both public & private teachings) against the whole counsel of God (the bible). My sin resulted in much pain for many of people.
Please watch the video and measure everything against the Word of God… EVERYTHING! Again please forgive me.
Let this be a warning to all of you who submit to men (and women) who claim to “speak for God”. You better stop reverencing these false teachers, pimps, hustlers, and wannabe’s more than the Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God’s Holy Word, and start testing the spirit by the Spirit (1 John 4:1-3).
Remember Paul’s admonition in Romans 16:17-18:
