The religious institution you are attached to has much to do with the person you have become and are becoming.

The Tour Begins

In my study of Trinity Baptist Church in Kelowna, B.C., Canada, CHURCH was spoken more than CHRIST by a ratio of 3 to 1. Adversely, The NT mentions CHURCH less than CHRIST, by a ratio of 1 to 13. For the thinking evangelical, this is SCARY stuff! Like really.

Hopelessness, Real Hopelessness

Richard experienced the hopelessness of hell. An eternity of no hope. Ceaseless hopelessness. Richard: "There is no Redeemer in hell."

Two Great Invitations

The second Great Invitation is only for those who have embraced Christ's first invitation, those whose names can be found in the Lamb's book of life.

The Tour Continues

At Evangel Church (Kelowna, B.C.) CHRIST is spoken. But to what degree? That is the issue. Sadly, CHURCH is emphasized much more than Jesus. Something.... is.... wrong. Like really.

Who Are You Following?

A follower of evangelicalism (an evangelical) is not a follower of Christ. And a follower of Christ is not a follower of evangelicalism. A follower of Christ is a follower of.... Christ.

What Book Will I Obey?

There are two books Evangelicals cleave to - the Bible and the Book of Evangelicalism. These two books are contrary to each other.

Next Stop: Kelowna Christian Center

Kelowna Christian Center was the outcome of an ugly church split. It was a church split from Evangel Tabernacle that gave birth to KCC. Bitterness from the Evangel camp lasted years. Families were divided, accusations exchanged, and on and on. It really was ugly.

https://youtu.be/sJaJxxJ2gY0

I Once Was Found

“Good-bye Jesus, hello again carnal friends!” Departing from Christ (or backsliding) is something many converts to Lord Jesus do. More, perhaps much more, than you think.

https://youtu.be/_HfCAONjJqY

KCC.... Again

Because evangelicalism competes with the Lord Jesus for the hearts of God's people, Jesus wants the veil that hides evangelicalism to be removed. I unveil evangelicalism by unveiling evangelical churches. Thus this second visit to KCC.

https://youtu.be/Dq2NawkVISQ

Jesus Tithed, Right?

Did Jesus the carpenter tithe? Did the fishermen brothers - Peter and Andrew, James and John - tithe? What about Matthew the tax collector and Luke the physician? The answer will surprise almost ever viewer of "Like Really?".

Controllers vs Controlled

God never assigned any man or group of men to control your christianity. Influence, yes. Control, no.

https://youtu.be/kEKA9CHGrDk

Distribution Center or Storage Center? Hmmm.

Lord Jesus never appointed anyone to be a storage center. Faithful disciples of Christ are distribution centers. Amen?

Jesus, Do You Want Me To Tithe?

The most logical way of finding out if Lord Jesus wants you to tithe is to ask Him. Amen?

https://youtu.be/ftRyp9vrhMc

Jesus Does NOT Want You To Tithe!

Evangelicals must learn that submitting to evangelicalism, including the 'evangelical tithe', is not submitting to Christ. Such is contrary to Christ.

https://youtu.be/Si7Jo7kVEI4

Tithers Defend the Indefensible Tithe

Tithers were stirred to defend the tithe from my suggestion, "Jesus does not want you to tithe!" This is a response to their response.

Seven Questions

Seven questions regarding the upcoming, crucial but mostly ignored, judgement seat of Christ.

https://youtu.be/IlhTveL751Q

Pastor Whoever vs Jesus Christ

If Pastor Whoever is on the wrong side of the tithe debate he is therefore in discord with Jesus. He injures Christ's church.

https://youtu.be/aDmse_LzAhI

Pastor Whoever vs Jesus Christ (PART 2)

Lord Jesus: "Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ." (Mat.23:10 NASB)

https://youtu.be/8XAd_EEwSeI

"The Lord Is My Shepherd." Like Really?

Paul warned, "Savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock." Today, are these "savage wolves" seated in pews or standing behind pulpits?

https://youtu.be/SHujzuHNS04

S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-D Scripture

All religions, including evangelicalism, are built upon s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d  Scripture. But s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d  Scripture isn't Scripture.

https://youtu.be/WhAjKs0t-4M

Reformation Of The Heart

Lord Jesus is not interested in reforming denominations. He wants to bring reformation to His people, a reformation of the heart.

https://youtu.be/JEmbdD_s8TE

In Defence Of 'Tongues'

Paul wrote, "I speak with tongues more than you all." And, "I wish you all spoke with tongues." Hmmm... What does that tell us?

https://youtu.be/N0DRIYdOshw

Would Paul Be Welcomed in Kelowna?

Surely if the Lord Jesus sent Paul, His special emissary, from New Jerusalem to Kelowna, he would be welcomed. Or would he?

https://youtu.be/eEoJoRcjMN0

How Much Does Your Pastor Make?

Most who finance the pastor's salary have no idea what that salary is. While a salary is non-Biblical, an undisclosed (concealed) salary is immoral.

https://youtu.be/elGH7Srw6BI

Paul vs Peter

Paul opposed Peter because "what he did was very wrong." If APOSTLE Peter could not be trusted, how can we trust PASTOR Peter? Or Pastor Fred? Or Pastor Whoever?

https://youtu.be/dFenJiRrzZM

Two Hands, Two Hearts

How easy it is to lose one's devotion to our Lord Jesus. And how easy it is to recover what was lost.

https://youtu.be/o1DXD5iUugo

Showdown in Antioch

Peter "was afraid of criticism". Fear is something we do and fear is something we have. We fear rejection as much as we crave acceptance.

https://youtu.be/o6AYD4CcjBo

"Their Worship Is A Farce!"

Jesus deemed their worship artificial and empty. Why? Because they made God's word "of no effect" for the sake of their traditions. Evangelicals, etcetera, commit the same crime.

https://youtu.be/EZcwcESmfwU

"God Tells the Man Who Cares"

Thorny quotes from an influential writer/pastor/prophet from a previous generation, a man who cared, A.W. Tozer (1897-1963).

Not All Christians Go To Church

Like medicine, Sunday morning services can be beneficial. But, like medicine, we must beware of the side effects.

https://youtu.be/CFcKYUB1SWA

There's Praying and There's Saying

Lord Jesus prayed for things, and Lord Jesus spoke to things. There is a time to pray (petition) and there is a time to speak authoritatively.

Tell Me, Sister....

Tell me Sister, why do you call another man "Pastor"? How can you expect the kids to esteem dad as the family's spiritual leader if you don't?

Cessationism: A Nasty Word

To deflect from their failure to imitate the supernatural works of Christ, some (most?) denominations have invented a nasty doctrine: Cessationism.

YOU Have A Ministry Gift !

According to Ephesians, chapter four, Lord Jesus invested in YOU either the 'ministry' gift of apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor or teacher. Like really.

https://youtu.be/KAXwVnKg_8c

Ministry Gift? Me? Like Really?

Jesus invested in you a ministry gift: apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, teacher. And Jesus expects you to exercise your gift.

https://youtu.be/-7Yk4VE1r5Q

"To Love Is To Hate"

The Father highly rewarded Jesus for two reasons: 1) He loved righteousness and 2) He hated iniquity. Many who assume they love God lots.... don't. Their love for God is no deeper than their disdain for disobedience.

https://youtu.be/p2NFyncbFAc

An Overview of Evangelicalism

Are evangelicals responding to Christ's mandate - to take His gospel to the nations - with urgency or lethargy? And if lethargy, does that reveal a lethargic relationship with Lord Jesus? Just asking.

https://youtu.be/ei2wzVF23s8

A Den Of Thieves

Jesus called 'them' "a den of thieves. Could Jesus also call us "a den of thieves"? Think about it. Are we taking His mandate to reach the nations with His gospel seriously?

https://youtu.be/ZLe5WhUlzuM

Good Example? Or Bad Example?

What you do is a declaration of what you believe. Your refusal to compromise will do much for your congregation and for the cause of Christ.

Follow The Money

Salaries of the 47 employees at Trinity Baptist church of Kelowna, B.C., for a one year period, totalled $1,660,265. Two of the 18 full-time employees earned somewhere between $80,000 and $119,999. How does this compare with NT precedents?...... it doesn't.

https://youtu.be/09-OCHQKiI8

"And My Words Abide In You"

Words are powerful. It was words that made the nonbeliever a christian. And it was words that made the christian an evangelical. Jesus' words must have supremacy over evangelical words; the otherwise is disobedience and regret.

https://youtu.be/DJ6pWZeLk-o

Larry Jones vs Carey Nieuwhof

Carey and Larry view evangelicalism quite contrarily. Carey enhances it, Larry hates it. Is this religion a creation of Lord Jesus or the outcome of man's itch to build things? Is it the outgrowth of God's Bible or is it revamped catholicism?

https://youtu.be/1YDMdC-t8pI

Compromise Cripples

Compromise devalues one's relationship with the Lord Jesus. Devotion to Christ is diluted to the degree one compromises. The branch (the christian) is still attached to the Vine (Lord Jesus), but the connection is less firm.

https://youtu.be/HbIG_bUSLRg

Poor Mary Magdalene

Jesus ascended into heaven. How will Mary Magdalene survive without her beloved Master? No governing religious body. No salaried pastor. No sunday services. If the evangelical concludes Mary probably got along just fine without evangelicalism, he is declaring so could he. If her christianity would have been encumbered by an institutional church, perhaps his is also.

https://youtu.be/xjip2C88X2w

Three Sick Sermons

'Sick' is an appropriate word to describe a sermon that undermines an evangelical's relationship with Lord Jesus.

https://youtu.be/5ay4aBcX9ls

Sick Sermon # 2

Most congregations have heard this sick sermon, many several times.

Tithing Is A Sting Operation

The awful evangelical tithe is a devious sting devised over several decades by devious leadership.

Compromisers - religion's adders and subtracters - seat each other in places of prominence. I was their victim, but no more. Thank You, Jesus.

Revival vs Reformation

The Holy Spirit does not revive the revived. He revives the spiritual drowsy.

Pastor.... Listen Up, Will You?

To every evangelical pastor I say this: If you want to be informed, you will listen. If you don't want to be informed, you won't listen.

Lord Jesus is my pastor, Lord Jesus is my ONLY pastor, Lord Jesus will be my only pastor for all eternity.

Pastor.... Will You Sign Your Bible?

Status quo has a firm grip on their heart. The way it is muzzles them. They long ago gave themselves over to denominational lords; to them they bow and them they obey.
