David J. Stewart Skull and Crossbones Award
Here is a lengthy list of compromised, apostate, milquetoast, ecumenical,
Repentance is a change of mind. ( http://jesus-is-savior.com/salvation_webpages/31-repentance.htm )The truth is, Jesus taught repentance was TURNING FROM EVIL WAYS. How do we know this? By comparing two related verses (Mt. 12:41 and Jonah 3:10) it becomes apparent:
The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now one greater than Jonah is here. (Mat 12:41)
When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he had compassion and did not bring upon them the destruction he had threatened. (Jonah 3:10)NOTE: Jesus said what the Ninevites did was repentance and he was referring to the fact that they turned from their evil ways.
The King James language is NOT hard to understand. Most of the so-called "archaic" words are explained by the context of the passage or by comparing the passage with other passages in the Bible where the same word is used. Heady and high-minded people resent the King James language because it is plain and simple, and it isn't in tune with their high-minded vocabulary. In fact, the Grade Level Indicator of the Flesch-Kincaid research company says the King James language is EASIER to understand than the new versions. (http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Bible/kjb_only.htm )NOTE: What unsupported nonsense! Why is there NO documentation to support the Flesch-Kincaid research company which says the King James language is EASIER to understand than the new versions. WHY doesn't he precisely reference it for the whole world to examine it, if it really was a credible study at all? How do we know it was even done? Those statements are sheer propaganda, but common among the KJV only cultists. But there is more! David Stewart also says Only The 1611 King James Bible is Trustworthy! ( https://jesus-is-savior.com/ ) Folks, the KJV most have today is not the 1611. That means David Stewart just indirectly said your edition of the KJV is not trustworthy! Also, the 1611 KJV had the Apocrypha in it, with its damnable HERESIES and prayers for the dead! See Thirteen Facts About KJV Onlyism.
As true believers in Christ, we believe that our saved loved ones are in heaven. However, they CANNOT make intercession for us. They can pray for us, but they have no special favor or power with God. A man once wrote me and said that I was wrong to teach that our loves ones in heaven could pray for us. He accused me of violating 1st Timothy 2:5. Folks, it is NOT wrong to ask someone in heaven to prayer [sic] for you. Is that not what happens here on earth every time you ask a Christian brother or sister to pray for you? Did not James advice us to call for the elders of the church when we're sick? (James 5:14). So there must be a big difference between asking someone to pray for you, verses expecting someone to reconcile things with God for you. It wouldn't be wrong for me to ask my departed mother in heaven to pray for me, anymore than it would be wrong for me to ask my pastor or a friend to pray for me. Asking someone to pray for you is very different than asking someone to intercede for you. ... There is nothing wrong with asking others to pray for us. Just because a loved one graduates on into glory doesn't mean that they can't pray for us. ... In light of this Biblical truth [Heb 12:1], I do believe that our loved ones (who would want to inquire about us) are allowed certain desired information. ( http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False Religions/Roman Catholicism/one_mediator.htm )Remember those strange and unscriptural teachings from David Stewart the next time the devil tempts you to quote from jesus-is-savior.com for anything!
The big irony of all this is that even the best of Christians, who faithfully attend church, and sing in a choir, and tithe, and go soulwinning, are just as much dirty, rotten sinners as the believer who went to a whore house last night. That's exactly what James 2:10 teaches. ( http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Basics/saved_certain.htm )Surely that teaching from Mr. David Stewart of jesus-is-savior has tickled many ears belonging to those who are slaves to sin, besides making the devil happy. The holy image of Christianity has been smeared and the gospel is made powerless by such dribble. Christians are not sinners. Christians are righteous and OBEY Jesus for eternal salvation (Heb. 5:9). NOTE: There is nothing in James 2:10 or elsewhere which teaches that! The Bible teaches all sins are NOT equal.
Besides distorting Biblical repentance by denying one must turn from his evil ways to have salvation, David Stewart also labels such teachers false prophets. David J. Stewart said:
There are many false prophets today who pervert the gospel, teaching that a sinner must amend his ways, forsake the world, and make a total surrender to Christ's Lordship in order to be saved. ( http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Believer's Corner/eternal_security.htm )
There is a heresy going around in many of our churches today known as "Lordship Salvation." This false doctrine simply teaches that a person must accept Jesus Christ as the "Lord of their life" to be saved. ( http://jesus-is-savior.com/salvation_webpages/33-lordship_salvation_exposed.htm )
LORDSHIP SALVATION is the false doctrine that a sinner MUST forsake their actually sins to be saved. In sharp contrast, the Bible, God's Word, teaches that a sinner's faith in Christ alone is sufficient for salvation. I am a strong OPPONENT of Lordship Salvation. In fact, I hate the hellish lie of Lordship Salvation. (http://jesus-is-savior.com/False Doctrines/Lordship Salvation/ls.htm)David Stewart doesn't know a saving faith in Jesus will have OBEDIENCE TO GOD with it. Folks, many people are not qualified to teach and David J. Stewart is one of them.
You need NOT do anything to be saved except admit you're a sinner and then call upon the precious name of Christ Jesus. Likewise my friend, you do NOT have to give up your sins to be saved, except one--the sin of unbelief! ( http://jesus-is-savior.com/salvation_webpages/33-lordship_salvation_exposed.htm )
King David lost the joy of salvation, but he didn't lose his salvation. ( http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Believer's Corner/eternal_security.htm )David J. Stewart's KJV once saved always saved fails the revealing acid test question to know a license for sin teacher. Is it any wonder David Stewart will slander me by calling me a false prophet? He also strangely lumps me together with eternal security teachers, whom I have refuted in my book demolishing eternal security entitled, The Believer's Conditional Security: Eternal Security Refuted. Heretic and slanderer David J. Stewart said:
They [people] have been lied to by false prophets like Dan Corner, Ray Comfort and John MacArthur to think that they must live lives of obedience, holiness and faithfulness to be saved. They are self-righteous. ( http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Believer's Corner/eternal_security.htm )
I am going to Heaven, regardless of how I live. But you say, that's crazy! No! That's Bible! So do Christians have a license to sin? Yes, if you want to view it that way. ( http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Believer's Corner/eternal_security.htm )
I, Dan Corner, challenge you, David J. Stewart to a text debate on eternal security via 5 email exchanges (or something similar).
I propose the following details:
● Opening Statement to be no more than 1,500 words.
● After the opening statement, each party can attempt to rebut his opponent or interject new information relevant to eternal security with no more than 2,500 words per exchange. (We do that for a total of 3 exchanges.)
● Closing Statement to be no more than 1,500 words.
● We will have a total of 1 week for each segment to be completed. In other words, 1 week for the opening statement, 1 week for the first rebuttal, 1 week for the second rebuttal, 1 week for the third rebuttal, 1 week for the closing statement. In 5 weeks it will be over and will then be posted on our web sites to remain there.
Mr. David J. Stewart likes to hide. He has no ministry address or phone number posted—only a contact form. [He might or might not be in Guam.] Does such secretiveness sound like something Paul would do? I can only try to reach David J. Stewart with this debate challenge through his contact form.
David J. Stewart, will you accept this debate challenge on eternal security? This doctrine has allowed you to slander me and deceive people.
NOTE: This debate is not on any other subject, including KJV onlyism, but only on eternal security. (David J. Stewart was contacted regarding this on 12-30-08.)
