It’s Time.

Intro. It’s my intention to set the record straight and introduce you to who and what I REALLY am, and who and what I am REALLY about.

Michael, you’ve seen me ONCE maybe TWICE in 30 years, yet you seem by your words to be an “expert” on me. David and Jana have seen 4-5 times in the same 30 years. And from 1976 til today, 44 years, all of you seen me maybe 8 times.

Yet all three of you act like you know me much better than you actually do. This time it’s Michael, but David and Jana, you’ve each believe and said similar things.

Last night it was “expert” Michael’s turn to parrot the falsehood(s): “Larry, you do know your self-righteous attitude is why you’re so alone? Somewhere in your heart of hearts you must sense this is true.”

What triggered this false response? Here is the exchange in the text last night: A 2nd music video that I don’t like is sent to me. The 1st time I just opt to say nothing. This time because of Michael’s claim to still be a sinner I opted to speak up.

What did I say? THIS: “And when each of us gave our hearts and lives to The Lord Jesus Christ in repentance unto salvation at that moment we ceased to be a sinner anymore, but The Bible declares we are new creatures in Christ Jesus; old things passed away, behold, all things are become NEW.”

Michael, in your gentle, but deceitful way said/asked, “You don’t sin?” That’s the kind of question that the Pharisees would try to trip up Jesus, John the Baptist, Paul the Apostle and every follower of Jesus with. That was NOT an honest question, because even as Christians we still wrestle with our flesh (Romans 7:1-25; Galatians 5:16-25) yet The Bible teaches we as Christians are NO LONGER sinners by nature, but rather we ARE: new creatures IN Christ Jesus, old things passed away, ALL THINGS ARE NEW, we are a Royal Priesthood, a Holy People, called OUT of Darkness into HIS marvelous Light. II Corinthians 5:17-21; I Peter 2:9-11; I John 3:1-10; Colossians 1:12-20).

So my answer to such a disingenuous question was this: “You have read The Bible haven’t you? A sinner is one who is unregenerate and unrepentant, a sinner BY NATURE. A Christian is a NEW CREATURE IN CHRIST JESUS…old things PASS AWAY- Behold ALL THINGS ARE NEW.

That is what The Bible says.

II CORINTHIANS 5:17-21 As a Christian we are now The Righteousness of God IN CHRIST. Romans 8:1; I Peter 2:9-11…A Christian sins- but it is NO longer our nature to sin. Romans 6:1-23″. Then the broken record of lies was busted out, Michael makes the false accusation of “Larry, you do know your self-righteous attitude is why you’re so alone? Somewhere in your heart of hearts you must sense this is true.”

So, then, as just now, I simply addressed a FALSE statement/belief that Michael, and by extension ALL Christians are STILL sinners with precisely what The Word of God says…and he spouts of that nonsensical blather with no basis in the actual conversation let alone reality.

HOW is saying what GOD says about us “self-righteous”? Hmm, Michael? HOW does that work?

Just so you ALL know, yes, I do still struggle with the flesh. ALL Christians do. And, yes, sometimes I say/do something that is sin. BUT that does NOT change what God in The Bible says ONE bit.

GOD says We are HIS Kings and Priests, a Holy Nation, a Royal Priesthood, a New Creature IN Christ Jesus. AND GOD says until we are clothed with incorruptibility and immortality we will struggle- BUT GOD also says we do so IN VICTORY, I Corinthians 15:51-57; II Corinthians 2:14; I John 4:1-6). 

THE TRUTH ABOUT ME.

On February 15th, 1991 I ignored the Red Flags and Warning Lights about Cindy and married her anyway. Simply put, her faith is shallow, if real at all, but she can fake it and cry and play the victim like Tammy Faye Bakker or Jan Crouch. We were married 20 years. In that 20 year period Cindy committed adultery with at least two that are confirmed by as many as 18 other people, from 4 different churches. One adulterous affair she carried on for 10 years. During that same 10 year period there was NO affection at all, none. She lied about love letters and love gifts from her boyfriends. One of her boyfriends kept a detailed journal of when and where they met and what their adultery was like.

The kids believe and side with Cindy. They believe a lie. YOU believe a LIE when YOU choose to believe Cindy, and by extension the kid’s false view of what happened. BUT that is STILL the Truth.

Mindy had even more Red Flags and Warning Lights. But after the last 10 years of hate and lies from Cindy, and two years of being single I ignored ALL those warnings. I was wrong. I paid for it. Mindy is schizophrenic and bi-polar, and later found out was a Meth head and demon possessed. AND committed adultery to get her dope. BUT yeah, you all go ahead and believe Mindy too.

I admit that I was wrong. I should have listened to The Lord’s promptings, and to the counsel God sent my way via Godly Christians…I didn’t. I was wrong for not listening. I paid for it. THAT IS THE TRUTH.

I asked God to forgive. I tried to reconcile both times. I wept, cried, and repented.

BUT I will NOT let anyone take all the lies that have been spewed and then base false observations and false judgments about me, and then DEMAND that I repent of utter lies about me.

I am not going to defend this, nor myself anymore. IF you choose to believe the lies that you all circulate go ahead. BUT if you do…then do NOT expect to ever see or hear from me ever again. I am brushing the dust of my feet with this open letter.

Let me ask these question(s):

I have admitted many and repeated times I was wrong, how is that “self righteous”?

I have admitted, and repented of sins that I actually committed (not one’s that liars falsely accuse me of), how is that “self righteous”?

I daily, and constantly admit I NEED God’s grace and mercy, how is that “self righteous”?

I bring up Scripture to address error, how is that “self righteous”?

I wont “repent” of things I’m FALSELY accused of, how is that “self righteous”?

Today’s modern “church” would excommunicate John The Baptist,Paul the Apostle, and The Lord Jesus Christ because today’s watered down doctrine, theology, and preaching is absolutely foreign to what they preached, taught, and gave their lives for.

Right is still right even if everyone says it’s wrong. Wrong is still wrong even if everyone says it’s right.

BTW, I am NOT alone.

But none of you would know that because you don’t ask, and know nothing about me. A LOT has happened in the 44 years since I moved away, and the 4-5 times you saw me in that 44 year span, coupled with the lies that keep circulating about me seem to prevent you from having ANY curiosity about the truth.

Image may contain: text that says 'IF THE BIBLE CALLS IT A SIN, YOUR OPINION DOESN'T MATTER.'

The sad TRUTH about modern era “Christianity” is that they would stone John The Baptist and Crucify Jesus for what they preached!

These things should be obvious to any Christian who spends time daily, and prayerfully in God’s Word. Why do so-called “christians”, even so-called “ministers” get defensive when Scripture is brought up about an error THEY said/believe? Why do so-called “christians”, even so-called “ministers” get offended at God’s Word and falsely accuse the messenger of being “self-righteous”…when all that was said was the unmitigated Word of God?

THIS is only one area that I disagree with Michael, William and others in my family and friends about:

What The Bible REALLY Says About Drinking Alcohol.

Revelation 1:6 King James Version
6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
GOD HAS MADE US KINGS AND PRIESTS UNTO HIM. What The Bible then decrees to Kings and Priests God declares to US his servants/children.
Leviticus 10:8-11 King James Version
8 And the Lord spake unto Aaron, saying,
9 Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:
10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;
11 And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the Lord hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.
PRIESTS ARE FORBIDDEN TO DRINK ALCOHOL.
WE ARE God’s Priests- God forbids us to drink alcohol.
Proverbs 20:1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.
Here The Bible says we are NOT wise/fools, deceived, if we drink alcohol. It’s a mockery.
Proverbs 23:20-35 King James Version
20 Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:
21 For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.
22 Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.
23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
24 The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.
25 Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice.
26 My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.
27 For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.
28 She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.
29 Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes?
30 They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.
31 Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.
32 At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.
33 Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.
34 Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.
35 They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.
This is absolutely clear. GOD says to NOT even be among those who drink alcohol, and to NOT even LOOK at it.
Proverbs 31:4-5King James Version
4 It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink:
5 Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.
GOD FORBIDS kings to drink alcohol. WE ARE God’s Kings, a Royal Priesthood. We ARE FORBIDDEN to drink alcohol.
Isaiah 5:13-25 King James Version
13 Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.
14 Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.
15 And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled:
16 But the Lord of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.
17 Then shall the lambs feed after their manner, and the waste places of the fat ones shall strangers eat.
18 Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:
19 That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25 Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
Here GOD pronounces HIS judgment upon those who drink alcohol. It perverts judgment, and cause the drinker of alcohol to “justify the wicked”.
Habakkuk 2:15 King James Version
15 Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour drink, that puttest thy bottle to him, and makest him drunken also, that thou mayest look on their nakedness!
In this Scripture passage GOD pronounces WOE/judgment upon those who give to SOMEONE ELSE to drink. GOD strictly and repeatedly FORBIDS the drinking of alcohol.
Matthew 26:17 King James Version
17 Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?
Some “christians” try to falsely justify their drinking of alcohol by falsely saying that Jesus and HIS disciples partook of alcoholic wine at The Lord’s Supper. This is 100% unBiblical, blasphemous, and outright heresy. JESUS NEVER called it alcohol/wine, CHRIST JESUS said it as THE FRUIT OF THE VINE, aka grape juice. Also, JESUS said it was symbolic of HIS BLOOD. Alcohol MUST undergo fermentation, decay, it is a juice that IS CORRUPTED…Jesus Christ The Lord would NEVER use such a depraved symbol FOR HIS SINLESS, LIFE-CHANGING, SOUL-SAVING BLOOD.
Lastly, the text EXPLICITLY SAYS It was The Feast of UNLEAVENED Bread, NO leaven at all could even be anywhere in the house. No leaven. No alcohol.
Those who argue that The Sinless Saviour, The Word made Flesh, The Lord Jesus Christ would 1) break HIS OWN MOST SACRED law, and 2) symbolise HIS SINLESS BLOOD with decayed, fermented, corrupted alcohol are either 100% Biblically ILLITERATE, or in deliberate rebellion against God and HIS Word.
1 Timothy 5:23King James Version
23 Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities.
Lastly, it would seem here superficially that the Apostle Paul is going to FLY IN THE FACE OF ALL THE SCRIPTURE and is telling Timothy to drink alcohol for his stomach ache. BUT…does God contradict HIMSELF? Does The Bible state- anywhere- opposing, contradictory precepts? The answer is clearly NO. Those who truly STUDY The Bible, and The Languages of The Bible WILL learn that The Bible uses 5 different words/terms for wine. Three are NON-alcoholic (The Fruit of The Vine, The Juice, The Pulp), ONLY two are fermented, ONE is VINEGAR (The wine Paul told Timothy to use), ONLY ONE was alcoholic.
We must then “rightly divide The Word of TRUTH”. Since God repeatedly and strictly FORBIDS the drinking of wine it MUST be the ALCOHOLIC wine God is speaking of. And The ONE LONE time that God says it is ok then it MUST be NON-alcoholic. GOD is NOT a dottering old fool, constantly contradicting HIMSELF. God says HE IS THE LORD, AND CHANGES NOT.
There are Liberal “theologians”/”scholars” who who try to pick at this and vainly try to refute it. The Word Of GOD has been presented, God’s Word has spoken CLEARLY. Argue if you want…just don’t expect me to join you in an argument. I will ALWAYS stay true to God’s Word.
==================
A time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats. Or wolves poisoning the sheep with a watered-down, sugar-coated, false “gospel” that not only can not save, but damns it adherents to an Eternity in Hell. Galatians 1:1-9; II Thessalonians 2:1-12; Romans 1:16-32. 
~ Spurgeon and me.

Closing.

I wrote this years ago, it is applicable now:

Maxims of Truth.

Right is always right.
Wrong is always wrong.
It is never wrong to be (think, say, do) right.
It is never right to be (think, say, do) wrong.

Truth is always truth.

Matthew 7:6: 13-23
Romans 1:16-32
Malahi 3:6
PSALMS 119:11, 89, 105, 130
Having said that It deeply saddens me to see so many Christians looking for Truth in all the wrong places.
False teachers, False prophets, and False doctrine were the BIGGEST warning of The Last Days that The Lord Jesus and The Bible give, see:
MATTHEW 24
MARK 13
LUKE 17 & 21
ROMANS 1:16-32
II THESSALONIANS 2:2-12
I TIMOTHY 4:1-3
II TIMOTHY 3:1-8, 12, 13
II TIMOTHY 4:1-12
Way too many are exchanging The Eternal Truth of God for a pleasant and appealing LIE.
God is much more concerned about His Disciples being CONFORMED to Jesus, than to their COMFORT. Matter of fact, God will do whatever is necessary to shake us out of a comfortable lie so that we will conform unto the Lord Jesus Christ, His only begotten son.
Truth is rarely popular.
What is popular is rarely Truth.
Mentioning the name of Jesus and saying a sentence or two that sounds good here or there does not make a false teacher of the Prosperity Gospel anymore biblical then it makes a false teacher of Mormonism biblical, both or false both are to be avoided at all costs.
II CORINTHIANS 6:14-7:1
The mark of a true disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ is to be like Joseph fleeing from Potiphar’s wife…we should flee from all false teachers ,all false Doctrine, and all false prophets…it doesn’t matter if they say something that sounds good and it’s surrounded with false Doctrine… we are instructed, nay we are commanded, to flee them.
========================
Micahel said THIS:
“My judgment is based on what family members, cousins would all agree with. You are the only one who does not see it.”

I will show how petty, foolish and wrong this is with simple logic and truth.

1) The last time Jana and family, David and mom saw me was briefly for 3 1/2 days 5 YEARS ago.

2) I have NOT seen my cousins in 30 years.

3) Haven’t seen Petra and William in about 9 years.

4) YOU and YOUR sources of (false) information have ONLY seen me about 6-7 times in 44 years.

5) So when Michael says that he bases his judgment of me on what YOU ALL have said…so what?!! You don’t bother to ASK me anything about any of this. When I bring it up someone is always offended and they start the circle jerk of lies and false accusations again. When I basically say anything, especially if I “dare” to bring up Scripture, I am smacked down as being “self righteous”. When I refuse to agree with YOUR lies, you accuse me of being “self righteous”. When I bring up the truth that is fully corroborated by 18 people who saw and heard the same things I’m telling you now- Michael, and others, say “I didn’t bring that up…I didn’t mention that…I wasn’t even thinking of that”… THAT IS A LIE. YOU can NOT say that you get your judgment of me FROM the family, and then when I refute it say “it wasn’t from/about the family”. ALL that you consistently say is that “Larry is self righteous”. When addressed and refuted with facts, YOUR argument, such as it is, “that’s not what we meant or were talking about”.

6) BE HONEST, WHY would I want to hang around ANYONE who believes LIES about me, tells LIES about me, tells LIES to me, and makes false, and stupid, and TIRING accusations about me?? Huh?! WHY? WHY would I want to hang around ANYONE who whenever I bring up a Biblical P.O.V., especially when using/quoting The Bible, gets offended, and defensive, and then trots out the stupid, tired, false “Larry is self righteous”?? IF you get offended with The Bible, Truth, Facts…anything that does not fit your picture of “reality” and what you think of me…then do NOT expect to ever see or hear from me again. IF ALL you have is a false accusation based on a pile of festering LIES about me…I do NOT want to be around that crap…EVER. PERIOD.

7) Do not get offended at or by The Bible and start a quarrel or “fight” with me and then accuse me of “fighting all the time”.

8) I am NOT going to debate any of this with anyone. YOU decide what YOU’RE going to do with this…IF I see or hear from you ever again good. IF NOT, too bad. I tried…one last time.

So it’s on you. I am NOT going to “repent” for something I NEVER did. IF you have a real, and specific instance of what THE BIBLE calls sin that I’ve committed, then by all means tell me…bring up the instance and the Scripture. We will and can talk about REALITY. BUT IF all you have is the same tired bull crap…keep it to yourselves. I’m done with THAT.

Your brother,

Larry.
