The Old Building


I had an interesting experience last night that I would like to share with the world on this Valentines Day, 2018.

Because my sweetheart has conflicting “obligations” tonight that does not include me, (Wednesday Feb. 14) we decided to do our traditional Valentines Day date last night on the Tuesday.  After a nice dinner, we went to the movie about Churchill titled “The Darkest Hour.”  Good flick – it accurately documented the struggle Winston Churchill faced as to whether the U.K. should risk everything, and fight the Nazis to the bitter end, or sign a nonaggression treaty with Hitler, providing temporary PEACE AND SECURITY to the U.K. in exchange for granting the Nazis silent acquiescence to their fundamental idealism and aggressive expansionism.   I get this.  If one chooses to just look away, and not confront lying hoaxes head-on until the bitter end, then organized Evil wins a great victory.    As Edmund Burke said:  “Evil can only flourish when good men DO NOTHING!”

Last night, after reflecting on the evening’s entertainment, I had yet another night dream of the Savior.  As usual, He came to me with His wide smile and loving embrace, then uttered just His usual three simple words: “Come, Follow Me.”  And away we went.

We were suddenly in a huge metropolis consisting of diverse people of all races and religions.  I was shown this large, abandoned dwelling in the very center of the city that was to be the focus of our attention in this night dream.  It was much like the “Old Granville House” in the classic movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” but much larger in size.

Soon we were observing a well-attended, TELEVISED, public meeting concerning the fate of the old, neglected, boarded-up house.  The meeting began with a very detailed “scientific” report presented that the old house was “dangerous” and a “public menace” and should be immediately “condemned” by the city officials, and immediately 100% leveled and torn down.  The real estate underneath it was clearly extremely PRIME and VERY VALUABLE – for it was in the very heart of the bustling metropolis. An architect presented his drawings showing what was being planned to be BUILT in its place, after the official destruction order was issued.  MOST people in the large crowd murmured agreement – “TEAR IT DOWN, TEAR IT DOWN – IT IS OUTDATED AND AN EYESORE – WE WANT A FULLY MODERN CITY WITH NEW, MODERN BUILDINGS!”

The “mayor” restored order by hitting his gavel and saying:  “Calm down, calm down, this is a public meeting, and we will hear all sides of the argument before rendering our decision.”  With this, a number of grey-haired elderly folks came to the front and testified: “Call us hopelessly romantic, but we remember how wondrously beautiful this Old House once was.  It was the cultural center of our city.  There were lavish balls and all high society gathered there socially, and regularly.”  With tear-filled eyes they said: “During our national wars and conflict, this wondrous Old Building was our beacon of light and hope – inspiring us that we could overcome and shine against ANY enemy.  Please, please, please, don’t tear it down!”

Another expert came forward and testified: “Don’t forget, this Old House is officially registered on the National “Historic Registry” – if you decide to tear it down and replace it, you will be tearing down a real part of our national identity along with it.”  Another man and his wife came forward and testified: “I don’t agree that this Old Building is TOTALLY structurally unsound and dangerous.  Our religious group holds meetings there, and we have fixed up a large portion of it, as you well know.  Perhaps we can agree to only tear down a PORTION of the building that is so obviously neglected and falling apart?  I think you may be right – a part of the Old House may indeed need to be modernized and renovated – but PLEASE – not the WHOLE THING!”

Finally, three men arose.  One was an attorney, one had a bald, shaved head with FIRE in his eyes, and one was a tall man full of wisdom and middle-class-level wealth.  The attorney spoke for the three of them, and said: “We would like to offer our services to this fine metropolis.  We have done our own independent analysis of the Old House over many years – and found it to be 100% structurally safe and sound.  My report can be read in my book on the subject, if you would enter it in as “evidence.”  The House was built on a solid foundation of bedrock by the original founder of this metropolis “in the beginning” – long before any other structure in this fine city was ever constructed.  Its core pillars are still rock solid in every way.  We would like to see this wondrous Old House fully and totally restored to its original state and glory.  We employ many workers who will donate their labor and expertise to this venture, free of charge.  It will once again be the light of hope and heart of this great city.  Will you allow us to do this project?”

The MONEY POWER and BANKERS immediately responded forcefully to the Mayor and Council:  “Gentlemen, please, we have already been over this for many years.  Even if fully restored, the Old House is outdated and its architectural style is arcane and out-dated.  It doesn’t fit with our grand modernization master-plan.  You need to look to the FUTURE, not be misty-eyed over the past.   If you wish to attract modern research scientists all over the world to our new Research Park and be eligible for billions in Government Grants, then demolish the old eye-sore and embrace the future world.  Don’t waste any more time!”

That was where the Savior left me, and I returned awake in my bed with a clear understanding of the meaning of His special teaching parable shown to me. I was not shown the final decision – for I think the jury is still deliberating – and the “final decision” is yet being debated.

The Old House, my friends, is the Holy Bible.  Loved by some, but viciously hated by the vast majority of “worldly” folks who believe it is musty and outdated, and thus an embarrassing eyesore.  Some cling to the more “habitable” parts of it, while doing their best to ignore other parts of it that they don’t like.  The main point is, there is a very organized group of people who have been trying for many years to take it COMPLETELY down.  But it is God’s WORD – built and protected by the CREATOR Himself for thousands of years.  It’s foundation is solid and its pillars are indeed eternal.   But if His people collectively decide to remove it, they will simply have to live with the consequences.

Where do you stand?  I know who the “attorney,” and the “shaved head man,” and the tall man are, do you?


The Reprobate Mind

What exactly is a Reprobate Mind?  This post will explore this concept from a purely biblical paradigm.  I submit it is very likely one of the most important topics humanity could ever discuss and debate.

First of all, why look at this subject from a biblical perspective?   The truth is simply that BIBLICAL TRUTH makes those who possess a Reprobate Mind very uncomfortable and often makes them squirm.  Those with a full-blown Reprobate Mind viciously hate the Holy Bible and openly mock all it represents.  They want you to believe that the Bible is a quaint collection of fictional and/or mythological stories and thus are fantasy.  They would have you believe that SCIENCE is what is actually Truth, and since many parts of the Bible are not “scientifically correct” – the entire volume to them is deemed untrustworthy and not worth studying let alone applying in their lives.

There are also varying degrees of a Reprobate Mind.  For instance, some Christians who have “itching ears” and many otherwise sincere pastors, so as not to “offend” their sheep,  choose to focus primarily on select “feel good” and what I call “scientifically neutral” biblical verses, chapters, and books.  Thus they often fail to give sermons on what the Bible clearly teaches which is in total supplementation to, and by all means central to, the Gospel of Salvation – i.e. the GOOD NEWS!  I submit the “Good News” of Christ’s Atonement is of course critical information.  However, I submit also this is the easy-to-digest MILK of the Bible.  What about the harder to digest, yet muscle building, protein-rich MEAT of the Bible?  For instance, how does one accept clear Bible teachings concerning the Genesis timeline of the creation with that of “Earth Science”?  What about the Newtonian “heliocentric” model (an unmoving sun with spinning planets including the earth orbiting it) of the solar system, as directly opposed to the Biblical teaching of a “geocentric” model where the sun and moon are placed in motion to measure “times and seasons” while the earth is solid and unmoving?  As I will show from the Bible itself, those who subscribe to the mindset that “science” trumps The Holy Bible (God’s Word) in even ONE arena are guilty of having a degree of the highly condemned Reprobate Mind.   This is dangerous to the soul because any degree of a Reprobate Mind is fully condemned by the Creator – and thus you may simply not be invited to the Lamb’s Wedding Feast, even though you may have confessed Christ and believe you are a “saved believer”.

You see, the Holy Bible is either 100% God’s Word and His Instruction Book to Humanity, or it is not.    If even ONE thing taught in the Bible is found to be false and incorrect in the mind of the “believer”, then the entire text must therefore be rejected as not being 100% trustworthy.  One cannot believe one part of the Bible, and totally reject another part.   In short, there is always that “shadow of a doubt” in the Reprobate Mind that otherwise confesses Christ with words and who may even be skilled at teaching select parts of the Bible, while secretly disputing other clearly defined biblical truths simultaneously.  The net result is that while “professing faith” outwardly, in the inward parts of the soul there will always be this dark little nagging doubt lurking around.  This is the very definition of a Reprobate Mind.  Doubt is surely the enemy of pure Faith, which Christ tells us has the power to literally move mountains.    The new “Priesthood” of White-Coated Scientists working in “high-tech” labs worldwide, who are largely atheists or at least agnostics, understand this all too well.  Also, nobody knows this concept better than the adversary of mankind – Satan.   He’ll let you accept 99 out of 100 biblical truths, but make you fight against that one truth with rationalization born out of deceiving “science”.   Sadly, rejecting just that ONE biblical truth makes you guilty of having a Reprobate Mind.  It is like a tiny sliver that festers and becomes toxic to the soul over time.

The term “Reprobate Mind” is found in Romans 1:28 and is in reference to those whom God has rejected as godless and wicked.   They “suppress the truth by their wickedness,” and it is upon these people that the wrath of God rests (Romans 1:18)  . The Greek word translated “reprobate” in the New Testament is adokimos, which means literally “unapproved, that is, rejected; by implication, worthless (literally or morally).”    You see, it is always “wicked” to suppress truth – especially CORE BIBLICAL TRUTHS such as those clearly taught in Genesis, as well as Joshua Chapter 10.   Why is this “wicked”?  As shown above, coming up with, and disseminating THEORIES which may be supported by flawed mathematical figures, to cause people to reject certain parts of the biblical narrative does nothing but dishonor the Creator and ultimately empowers sin.   Who conversely does this Honor?  Yes – it only honors the avowed enemy of God.

The Hebrews of the Old Testament (not today’s Askenazi imposters) were the covenant people of God largely because of Abraham’s original sacred communication with the Creator.   Yet they often were idolatrous and rebellious as they succumbed to the Reprobate Mind.   Abraham was taught directly by God concerning the movements of the stars, moon and sun in the “firmament” of the Heavens.   Subsequently, Moses was given even more incredible intelligence concerning the mysteries of earth’s creation, and was told to write the basic truths down for all mankind as a witness from God Himself.  The “pentateuch” or Five Books of Moses (the first five books of the Old Testament) are also known as the LAW to the Hebrew people.

The next book in the biblical text is the Book of Joshua – who was a valiant warrior-leader and contemporary of Moses.  It was clear that Joshua, like Moses, knew God intimately and well.  He had NO Reprobate Mind.  He had such incredibly perfect faith that what he asked God to do was ultimately performed.   For instance in Joshua 10:12, we read that Joshua asked and received a most incredible miracle – a greater miracle perhaps that the supernatural parting of the Red Sea:  “Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. 13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day. 14 And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel.”

Those harboring a Reprobate Mind will say this is “scientifically incorrect”.   Everyone knows that SCIENCE has “conclusively proven” that it is the Earth that spins 1000 mph on its axis as it hurtles through space and it is the sun that is fixed and motionless.   The Reprobate Mind will dredge up all manner of rationalizations to explain this part of the Bible away.  Some will say this has to be a mistranslation of the ancient texts.  Some say Joshua was simply an ignorant primitive man who did not understand modern science and that in reality it was the earth that stopped spinning for that period – but in his primitive perspective, the sun and moon only APPEARED to stop their movement.  Others with a full-blown level of Reprobate Mind will simply point out that this one verse is positive proof that the entire bible is total fictional nonsense.  I know this, because I have discussed this with a number of atheistic “scientists” who anchor their entire atheistic case on the “nonsense” of Joshua 10.     One can see how the logic of the Reprobate Mind flows:  if Joshua 10:12 is summarily dismissed, because of Joshua’s close relationship with Moses, Moses must also be fraudulent and thus one must dismiss as fictional all of Genesis through Deuteronomy which Moses wrote.  The overarching Law of Moses involving the 10 Commandments is of course the next domino to fall, and once that topples, then one has to dismiss the entire history of ancient Israel’s tabernacle and temple where spotless lambs were sacrificed because of the fall of Adam – the “fictional” first man.   Of course, if there was no viable LAW and no ORIGINAL SIN that needed a REDEEMER coming prophetically through the lineage of King David – then Jesus Christ and the entire New Testament is also relegated to the dustbin of meaningless mythology.   In this, it is clearly the Devil that LAUGHS and his angels REJOICE.    In place of the Bible and its teachings, the “New World” priestcraft adopts Darwinian evolution and secular humanism as its governing principles.  In the process, God is Mocked and Scorned and His angels weep.

Now you see why the Reprobate Mind is so dangerous, and why we must take the Bible literaly in its entirety???

Paul describes two men named Jannes and Jambres as those who “resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith” (2 Timothy 3:8)  Here we learn the Reprobate Mind is broadly defined as simply being resistance to the truth.  What “truth” is there other than what is taught in God’s Word – the Holy Bible?   In Titus, Paul also refers to those whose works are reprobate: “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate” (Titus 1:16). Therefore, the Reprobate Mind is one that is inherently corrupt and worthless.

In conclusion, we must constantly self-evaluate as to what extent we may be guilty of harboring a Reprobate Mind.

Again, Paul writes in his 2nd Letter to the Saints in Corinth: 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? 6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates. 7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates. 8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. 9 For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection. 10 Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me to edification, and not to destruction.

In other words, Paul is admonishing the Christian to determine what level of the Reprobate Mind we may have succumbed to.  Do we accept the entire Bible narrative as being 100% true and trustworthy, or do we dismiss what parts we don’t happen to like because they may be unpopular and offensive to declare to the brainwashed masses?   Perhaps instead of glossing over Joshua 10:12 – the true Christian should marvel at the type of relationship that Joshua had with Yeshua – where indeed heavenly bodies were stopped in their orbital circuits simply because Joshua asked!!




There are just a few details I would like to clarify:

When I testify in my interview with “Bishop” Earl that the Holy Bible is God’s Word, there is absolutely no doubt that it is of divine origins and that it most definitely has indeed been “translated correctly”.   The ancient texts such as the Greek “Textus Receptus” (aka the New Testament books) have been perfectly translated, and were never altered or changed in any way since the 1st century C.E.  The Dead Sea Scrolls prove the King James Bible Old Testament to also have been perfectly translated.   Nothing “plain and precious” has been lost – and so the declarations otherwise in the Book of Mormon exposes the fraud and deceptions of one Joseph Smith.  See 2nd short video below.

Question to my Mormon friends and family:  WHAT COULD BE MORE “PLAIN AND PRECIOUS” THAN A DETAILED ROAD MAP OF HOW TO GAIN AND MAINTAIN A DEEP, PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST, AND THUS A PURE KNOWLEDGE OF HIS TRUTH?   That’s called “Salvation through Grace” and that message comes out loud and clear in the New Testament text.  It always has, and it always will!  Christ’s GRACE has always been the CORE MESSAGE of His “Church” body – and just as He promised, the GATES OF HELL have not “prevailed against it”.   Instead, also just as He warned, FALSE PROPHETS have constantly perverted His Gospel with false teachings, “channeled texts” (not translated at all) and lying words.

And here is the witness of my BETTER HALF – my sweetheart Joan:
