Just Another Day in Corinth: ‘Pastor’ David Devereaux Preaching on Homosexuals in Church and Clergy…False Teaching in the Church

Desert Spring United Methodist Church – Summerlin is not teaching according to sound doctrine, so please be careful.  I say this with love and sadness.  This is the same thing that happened at Corinth.  Remember, the Bible warns us: “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but… Read More

Since when is it slander to reveal or speak out against slander?

Imagine this scenario: You see sin in the church from leaders.  You make a loving confrontation in obedience to God (Galatians 6:1; James 5:19).  Suddenly, your pastor who you love and have known for years calls you into a meeting and proceeds to tell you horrendous and degrading insults about yourself even to the point that you are weeping.  The abusive and cruel treatment leaves you feeling confused, condemned and unloved. After attempts at the Matthew 18 process clearly do not work, you tell others the truth of the slander that you… Read More

Is ‘Obedience’ the Same as ‘Works’?

Greek for works:  ergōn http://concordances.org/greek/2041.htm Greek for obey or keep:  peitharcheó, hupakouó, phulassó, etc. http://concordances.org/greek/3980.htm http://concordances.org/greek/5219.htm http://concordances.org/greek/5218.htm http://concordances.org/greek/5442.htm Greek for do, i.e., ‘be a doer’: poiétés http://concordances.org/greek/4163.htm (These lists are not complete, but will give you an idea). ——- God’s commands are not burdensome.  When we love someone as a Father it is not a task to obey at all. When many people think of the word “obey” they think bad thoughts.  But don’t you want your children to obey you?  When children obey us, they show by their listening and doing that they love us.  Did you… Read More

How Important is the Bible, Really? Are All of Christ’s Words Important?

Jeremiah 23 and today: truth vs. lies, read the Bible be careful what we drink in…

Jeremiah 23:13-17 “And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err. I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah. Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink… Read More
