What a Revelation from Bob!
I studied Theology for 7 years and majored in Hebrew, Greek and New Testament.
I read your remarks that the mainstream churches all over the world have been caught in a so-called health and wealth scenario.
Nowhere will you find preachers anymore who preach about a life of self-denial and retreat from the secular world.
Spurgeon, the greatest preacher, said that the Gospel=Jesus, and then Jesus crucified. The churches to whom he wrote do not preach about the blood of Christ, which is the only merit that can save us from our sins and hell. They preach a gospel which people like to hear.
Charismatic preachers preach a need fulfillment gospel. Preachers like Creflo Dollar, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, and John Hagee are filling their pockets with money, and they NEVER ever preach about the CROSS and the fact, like you said, that we are alien to the world.
Thanks also for your great explanation of the Rapture. I was searching and reading for seven years, and I prayed to God for an answer - God has sent his faithful and sincere servant Watchman on my road, and at last I got the answer.
May God bless you abundantly with your family.
Rev James Roodt
Reply from Watchman Bob: I'm thankful for your encouraging response, James. Sadly, most of the ones who really understand True Christianity are not from the U.S.A.
