1Corithians 9:16 For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!
UK Police will bow the knee for BLM but then turn around and arrest a black preacher of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ! ‘Bullied, intimidated, followed, arrested, put in a cell for six hours and then fined £400. Supported by the Christian Legal Centre, charges have now been dropped against Christian preacher, Andrew Sathiyavan, because no evidence could be found that he had done anything wrong while preaching the gospel on the streets of Solihull in November 2020. Watch as Andrew explains what happened when the police arrived and why preaching the gospel during this ongoing crisis is so important.’
This is the Christian testimony of Christopher Replogle, a Marine veteran of the Iraqi war. Christopher’s testimony is of one who not only fought in a war of bullets but a spiritual warfare for his soul. In the end Christopher came to know true freedom found only in the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour.

The other day I ran the article SBC DISFELLOWSHIPS 4 TENNESSEE CHURCHES. One of those churches booted out of the SBC had as its Pastor since 2014 a man who had earlier pled guilty and was convicted of statutory rape. Below is from https://www.casemine.com/judgement/us/5914bba0add7b04934797a7b which details some of the charges. This was a married man of 31 and pastoring a Baptist church! It is disgusting to read NOT only what this man did to a girl of 16 but that he was called to pastor another Southern Baptist Church JUST DOWN THE ROAD after his conviction! This brings up the fact that (1) this man is probably not born again and fits what Paul speaks about in Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.!
Secondly, there is the matter that the church that called him after committing and being convicted of this SIN in a court of law called this man to be their supposed Shepherd is a partaker of his evil deeds. Again, let it be said that the church which this man pastored at the time of his crime was ONLY SIX MILES FROM THE Antioch Baptist CHURCH THAT LATER CALLED HIM TO BE THEIR PASTOR! Didn’t those at Antioch Baptist call the other church for a reference or read the papers or listen to the radio or watch the news on television to be aware of this man’s sin!? Are those at Antioch Baptist unsaved as well! This man was disqualified from being a pastor!! The church at Corinth had sin in its midst and Paul wrote to that church saying the sin they were allowing was not so much as named among the Gentiles or we could say it this way, even the unsaved didn’t allow that sin.
Read what is circled below and I am sure your reaction will be, or should be, one of disgust, anger and questioning whether those in these two churches know the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. Perhaps we need to be reminded of 1Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
Charles Haddon Spurgeon was an English Baptist preacher who became known world-wide as the ‘Prince of Preachers’. His whole focus in life after coming to know Christ as his personal Saviour was to preach the Gospel. Along with preaching he wrote many books and the following is WHAT ARE WE AT which is the Second chapter of the book ALL OF GRACE.
‘I HEARD A STORY; I think it came from the North Country: A minister called upon a poor woman, intending to give her help; for he knew that she was very poor. With his money in his hand, he knocked at the door; but she did not answer. He concluded she was not at home, and went his way. A little after he met her at the church, and told her that he had remembered her need: “I called at your house, and knocked several times, and I suppose you were not at home, for I had no answer.” “At what hour did you call, sir?” “It was about noon.”“Oh, dear,” she said, “I heard you, sir, and I am so sorry I did not answer; but I thought it was the man calling for the rent.” Many a poor woman knows what this meant. Now, it is my desire to be heard, and therefore I want to say that I am not calling for the rent; indeed, it is not the object of this book to ask anything of you, but to tell you that salvation is ALL OF GRACE, which means, free, gratis, for nothing. Oftentimes, when we are anxious to win attention, our hearer thinks, “Ah! now I am going to be told my duty. It is the man calling for that which is due to God, and I am sure I have nothing wherewith to pay. I will not be at home.” No, this book does not come to make a demand upon you, but to bring you something. We are not going to talk about law, and duty, and punishment, but about love, and goodness, and forgiveness, and mercy, and eternal life. Do not, therefore, act as if you were not at home: do not turn a deaf ear, or a careless heart. I am asking nothing of you in the name of God or man. It is not my intent to make any requirement at your hands; but I come in God’s name, to bring you a free gift, which it shall be to your present and eternal joy to receive. Open the door, and let my pleadings enter. “Come now, and let us reason together.” The Lord himself invites you to a conference concerning your immediate and endless happiness, and He would not have done this if He did not mean well toward you. Do not refuse the Lord Jesus who knocks at your door; for He knocks with a hand which was nailed to the tree for such as you are. Since His only and sole object is your good, incline your ear and come to Him. Hearken diligently, and let the good word sink into your soul. It may be that the hour is come in which you shall enter upon that new life which is the beginning of heaven. Faith cometh by hearing, and reading is a sort of hearing: faith may come to you while you are reading this book. Why not? O blessed Spirit of all grace, make it so!’

‘The North Carolina pastor accused of urinating on a Delta airline passenger two weeks ago has been identified, authorities said Tuesday.
Daniel Chalmers was arrested by the Wayne Metro Airport police in Detroit after the Delta flight landed at the Detroit Metro Airport on Oct. 12, according to a police report.
The Wayne County Airport Authority provided the police report Tuesday to the Winston-Salem Journal after Freedom of Information Act request.
Chalmers’ age, hometown and cellphone number were redacted in the report obtained by the Journal.
Alicia Beverly, a passenger, told police that she was sleeping at 2:45 a.m. aboard the plane when felt someone standing over her, according to the report.
“So I woke up and looked to my right and seen this guy standing next to me,” Beverly said in her statement to police. “Shortly after I started to feel something warm and I jumped and screamed and I noticed he was shaking his penis like he was finished, and that’s when I felt my skirt was wet.”
Afterward, a flight attendant moved Beverly to another seat, the report said.
Wayne Metro Airport police boarded the plane after landed and they spoke to Beverly and Chalmers. Beverly told the officers that Chalmers urinated on her.
Chalmers initially denied that accusation, saying “I didn’t do it,” according to the report.
When the officer asked Chalmers what he didn’t do, Chalmers said, “Whatever it is she is accusing me of, I didn’t do it.”
Chalmers later told the officer that, “I’m a pastor, and that is out of my character and I didn’t do it,” the report said.
Chalmers then asked officer if there was any evidence that he urinated on Beverly, and the officer told Chalmers that Beverly’s clothing was covered in urine and her seat wet, the report said.
The officer also wrote in the report that he saw a wet spot in the groin area of Chalmers’ shorts.
Chalmers denied that he had been drinking, but the officer told him that he smelled of alcohol and his eyes was bloodshot, the report said. Chalmers admitted that he had taken medication, the report said. It also says Chalmers later told an officer he had a few drinks.
As officers escorted Chalmers off the aircraft, he told the plane’s captain that he intended to sue Delta Airlines for defamation of character for its treatment of him, the report said.
An FBI agent later issued a ticket or a federal court violation notice to Chalmers, and Chalmers was released from custody, the report said.
In the evangelical world of religion there are leaders that are considered ‘celebrities’ and those who are just plain ole preachers. Well, the ‘celebrity’ preachers seem to be often caught out doing some very strange things such as when a woman reported ‘…that as she woke up on a red-eye flight, a man later identified as a “well-known North Carolina pastor” was allegedly peeing on her.
Alicia Beverly, a Detroit resident, says the incident happened on a Delta flight from Las Vegas to Detroit on October 12th.
She told Fox News Detroit that she was in the back of the plane, next to her sister. She had fallen asleep but suddenly woke up to a strange feeling.
She said, “It felt warm, like on the side of me I felt something warm.”
As the drowsy woman woke up a little more, she saw something she was not expecting.
“I jump up and I seen his private area out and I screamed and that woke everybody up,” said Beverly. “By that time I actually looked at him and I see him shake himself off and I’m like this man just peed on me! I looked and there was a puddle of pee in the seats!”
Not surprisingly, she then screamed, which got everyone’s attention. One of the other passengers was an off-duty police officer. He quickly came to the back of the plane and restrained the man, who has so far only been identified as a “well-known pastor from North Carolina.”
Beverly, who said she was grateful for the offer’s intervention, reported she had to sit in her wet clothes for several hours before landing in Detroit.
The man was taken into custody when the plane landed and charges against him are pending.
People close to the pastor said he had a reaction to a sleeping aid and didn’t do it on purpose.
Is this for real? ‘Today former Southern Baptist Convention President Frank Page spoke with the FBC Jax Watchdog in an exclusive interview, revealing the details of his “inappropriate relationship in the recent past” that caused him to resign from the SBC Executive Committee.
“It is with deep regret that I let my fellow pastors and Southern Baptists know that I have had a morally inappropriate relationship over the past several months,”, said Page. “The Lord has shown me recently that this moral failing requires my repentance and departure from full-time ministry.”
When asked by the FBC Jax Watchdog for the details of the nature of the relationship, Page was at first hesitant and obviously embarrassed. Finally he did explain what happened.
Page explained that the relationship was not with a woman, but was actually with two men who are fellow “men of God”.
“In December, I committed the sin of befriending disgraced pastor Ergun Caner, and I even stooped so low as to share a pulpit with him at a youth camp meeting. Even knowing that Caner lied for over 10 years about being raised in Turkey and raised to ‘do that which was done on 11 September’, I still stood on the same stage as Ergun. This led to a further moral failing of shaking hands with Ravi Zaccharias at a pastor’s conference, knowing he is still unrepentant for his online relationship with a married woman.”
Page continued that these moral failings even led to a month-long bout with depression that caused him to watch the godless movies “Year One” and “Sausage Party”.
Now, wait a minute. If every preacher stepped down because they shared the pulpit with a lying preacher or shook hands with another preacher at a pastor’s conference that was accused of infidelity or other sins there wouldn’t be too many men still in the ministry!
