Is It Possible to Leave the Church and Not Abandon Jesus?


“Sometimes people become jaded by the failures of church leaders, causing them to want to leave the local assembly for good. But is it possible to turn one’s back on the Church without essentially doing the same to Christ?


That’s the question posed in last Wednesday’s episode of the Ask John Piper audio series, where the Evangelical pastor tackles tough theological and pastoral issues.

To the proposition of leaving the Church, but not Christ, Piper offers a simple answer: “If you do that, you are walking away from Jesus.”

Piper explained that Jesus founded the Church and established Apostles as its foundation. “And then He built it with prophets and teachers and pastors and ordained that there be a structure of local churches in the body of Christ called the Church,” said Piper, who cited John 14:23: “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word.

“To say, ‘I love Jesus, but I don’t submit to His word’ is a lie.”

Planned Parenthood’s Government Sponsored Baby Killing

           “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”      Why-The-GOP-Will-Never-Defund-Planned-Parenthood                                                                                                                                (Edmund Burke)

Let me speak clearly,with precision and without apology. Planned Parenthood is a demonized,government sponsored-baby killing industry! We cannot buy into the compromised lie that what we need is a “conversation”. Absolutely not!

This is an issue of “social justice” and all Christ Followers must continue to raise a loud voice of condemnation toward any and all who promote, support,or defend the institutionalized-demonized-murderous evil of abortion.

 Isaiah 58:1 “Shout out loud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and… their sins.

The Biblical Jesus Vs. The Post Modern Jesus

This graph clearly demonstrates why these Spirit inspired texts are some of the most “ignored-unused-unapplied”  in the modern church! [Click the graph to enlarge]


>> 2 Corinthians 11:4  “You happily put up with whatever anyone tells you…even if they preach a another kind of Jesus or a another kind of Gospel”. 
>>Galatians 1:8 “God’s [double] curse on anyone…who preaches a different kind of gospel contrary to the one we preach!”
>>2 Corinthians 11:12-15 Such men change themselves to appear to be ministers of Christ, but they are false ministers,deceitful workers, and servants Satan! This isn’t surprising,even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light!

An Open Letter to “Jesse Leon Rogers”

I would like to use this issue as a teaching moment regarding polemics. I must say ministers who create a  “canon within a canon” and who employ their ill-informed bobo [blink on-blink off] hermeneutic really weary me when attempting to demonstrate superior wisdom.So please note my biting sarcasm is most biblical as learned from the Apostle Paul in his Corinthian Letters.
After posting  “legal public facts” on my personal antagoniz blog concerning the Courts judgment against Ron Luce and a warrant issued  for 556534_3652379382425_1481352205_nhis arrest, a “Rev” Jesse Leon Rogers responded with allegations concerning my motive and practice for doing so. He then proceeded to call me out for not responding immediately,” Did I hit a little too close to home Richard? You know I described what you did exactly”.
Here are some of his allegations with my response:
 ..”I can tell you, what you are doing is not only unwise but it is also un-biblical. You haven’t researched the situation. You  haven’t talked to the people. And you haven’t prayed for Ron. All you have done is seen something posted and reposted it. Your spirit, attitude nor methodology reflect Christ nor Paul. It falls more in line with a gossip, tail bearer and the accuser.
 Jesse, now that I have a few minutes, “I am your Huckleberry”. No Jesse, that’s not greek! From the movie tombstone, it means “I’m just the man you’re looking for” concerning your  “to weak for the task” challenge.
Now let me take you into the Jesus paradigm-Paul following and adult world of scripture “rev”.
Your charges are these,” I haven’t prayed, haven’t talked to anyone, I did not do any research, merely re-posted someone else’s  post, and for doing so I am a gossiping tale bearer and an accuser.
I now call on you to publicly post every source you discovered in your own research to verify the allegations you’ve made against me.
If you objectively document any of the following, I will publicly repent, write Ron Luce a letter of repentance and ask you to personally forgive me, and will make it public for all to see.
However, If you are unable or unwilling to prove your allegations with verifiable and reputable documentation, you stand guilty of being a hollow core hypocrite of the highest Pharisaical order!
 [Jesus said,”  can you say to your brother, ‘Let me get the speck out of your eye,’ when there is a bigger log in your own eye? You hypocrite (play-actor, pretender), first get the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. Matt 7:5-6]
So here is your chance to show that you are a man of character,honor and integrity. Demonstrate publicly you would never require something of me you  haven’t done yourself.  Man up Dude!
1.Objectively document that I merely reposted!
2.Document how you know I have not prayed for Ron!
3.Document I did not research the subject!
4. Document that the articles from World Magazine and Christianity Today are factually erroneous!
5. Document that a warrant has not been issued!
6.Document that Ron Luce has failed to refund $160,000
6.Document that the Colorado Court did not find him guilty and demand he make payment!
7 Document that I have distorted or misrepresented the legal public facts in any way or in anything I posted.
Secondly, you say what I have done in posting factual news is un-biblical. Let me school you in some biblical theology “rev” as you seem to be guilty of “wanting to be my teacher….even though you do not understand the terms  used  or the subjects about which you make [such] confident declarations. [1 timothy 1:7]
First, your lack of scholarship, biblical theology and bobo hermeneutic places God in contradiction to himself. If factual news is wrong and sinful, God is guilty of the very thing he condemns and forbids. Check out this biblical theology:
>David is publicly reported as being a peeping tom who  pre-meditated murder, was guilty of covetous adultery and resulted in conceiving a bastard child.
>Lot offered his two virgin daughters to be violently gang raped.
>Abraham is counseled by his wife to have  a sexual relationship with one of their servants.
>Paul the Apostle publicly outed a young man in the Corinthian church for living in an incestuous relationship.
>Lots daughters assist him with getting drunk and then commit an incestuous threesome in order to conceive and have children.
>Luke reports publicly that Sapphira and Ananias were lying deceiving covetous hypocrites.
>Paul publicly reported that Hymenaues and Alexander were blasphemers whom he turned over to Satan.
>In 3 John, he publicly reports that Diotrephes is spreading malicious lies and is using abusive discipline on the congregants.
>The first six chapters of First Corinthians are written based solely on information Paul “heard” from others and that he had no personal first hand knowledge of.
 [ is reported to me by some have  from Chloe’s household and have told me about your quarrels…1 Corinthians 1: 11]
Finally, please note that Paul’s letters were read publicly and then passed around to the other churches to read. This means what he reported was then shared to different churches who had know knowledge of what was happening and Paul wanted it to be made public to all the congregations.
[Colossians 4:16 After this letter has been read to you, see that it is also read in the church of the Laodiceans and that you in turn read the letter from Laodicea]
[1 Thessalonians 5:27 I put you under oath to have this letter read to all the brothers]
As you can see “rev”, you do ‘ere not knowing the scriptures! It isn’t against God’s character or the Scriptures to relate to the broader church  documented facts about leaders. Just the opposite, it is in God’s character both by example and admonition for us to do so!

The Gnostic Heresy of Steve Munsey!

TV charlatan, Steve Munsey, is proclaiming his annual “charis-magic indulgence” heresy that  Yom Kippur is  God’s special holy1589061_orig day for christians to get healed of cancer, see children saved and supernaturally get out of debt!

How is this miraculous advent possible? Simply follow the charlatan’s gnostic secret formula to send a BIG financial donation to him today and instantly this financial transaction will merit with Christ the purchase of grace that releases your “Kingdom Panacea”. 

The Apostle Peter confronted this heresy in Acts 8 when he and John went down to Samaria:

 vs 23 Peter said to him,”to hell with you and your money! How dare you think you could buy  you the gift of God! [phillps translation]

So I join the spirit of  Peter and declare Anathema on Steve Munsey and his hellish acts of Simony!

“…He recently announced on evangelist Benny Hinn’s This Is Your Day program: “You’re not going to become a millionaire. You’re going to become a billionaire! But you must move now!”

The secret to obtaining this miracle? You must believe that God bestows special answers to prayer on Yom Kippur, the most important day on the Jewish calendar. And to unlock this blessing, you must bring a big offering in both hands. Suggested donation: $300.

Most casual channel-surfers who hear Munsey’s slick sales pitch will quickly detect that something funky is going on behind the curtain. The Chicago-based pastor is selling spiritual blessings with the same hypnotic skills of a used car salesman. What’s tragic is that millions of Christians who should have the discernment to know better are being duped by this circus sideshow.”

Pastor Commits Suicide After Being Outed On Ashley Madison

Days after the Ashley Madison site was hacked, A pastor,seminary professor,husband and father of two commits suicide. John Gibson’s name was on the illicit “Life’s To Short-Have An Affair” adultery site. In his suicide note, he referenced depression and Ashley Madison.

A list is being circulated here in La Grange that purportedly has a host of local names which includes friends, professionals and at least one defrocked Pastor.

It seems that adultery is much like pornography,the seductive enticement is the promise of absolute anonymity. Pragmatic rationalization fails to consider the inspired writing of scripture,” Be sure your sin will find you out” along with the relational pain it leaves in it’s wake.
