A Mormon Conversion to Christ


I have a powerful testimony from a young Mormon missionary that before his two year mission was over had. converted over to Jesus Christ. This 17 minute video is well worth your time. Presently his entire family is out of Mormonism and all praise goes to God for that. Here is his story in his own words conversion to Christ. I pray that this testimony can be a witness to all Mormons to find the real Jesus Christ and not the artificial one they follow.

Struggling Against the Truth by Father Terry


Last night I was watching a you tube video about how the Mormon Church trains their missionaries. One part grabbed my attention. The young men marched to meals saying Joseph Smith over and over again until they reached the dining room. I thought back when I left the priesthood, my beloved vocation of some 26 years. I recall giving a homily on this subject. once finished I thought about the words, Be ye separate. They haunted me the rest of that day. I have a confession to make. Catholic priests are taught about the Eucharist with same vigor those young Mormon lads marched to but with the same blindness as well. Ttansubstistatioism has always bothered me about the transfer from wafer to flesh. As God is my witness I see it as trickery when it is symbolic.

I’m still in ministry at a Berean church which allows them to address me as Father Terry. When I first started to read this website I was angry as to how Mr. Norris used the word abracadabra. It angered me. About three weeks ago I began praying the scriptures about it and the anger lifted. I found Mr. Norris email address and began to know his passion for the truth. Three days ago I asked him if I could do this piece and to my surprise he said yes.

Come out from among them and be ye separate. I have kept much of what I have said here to myself. What disturbs me is how Catholics in general support their views using Catholic resource sources! Mr. Norris is dead on here. When Satan speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources Saint John 8:44. Same thing exactly!

When Catholics reach out to Christians outside the church and call you brother, they lie to you, my former church believes there is no salvation outside the oldest church. That is a lie from the pit of hell, which does exist. Thank you Brother David for more than you will ever know.

Secretive Christians


Do you know any closet Christians? I get them all the time in my comment section. They don’t go by their real names as they have Code names. I was discussing spiritual things with Lander 7 and I kept asking him about what denomination he was with and his reply was always that he was just there to discuss Christian things. He was kind of mousy about it and had no spiritual boldness. While in his closet he was very Arrogant with me. But I knew nothing about him and he wanted to keep it that way because we were on the internet. So was I and I responded to him with my real name and my background. But he was afraid to reveal any of that to me. He’d act spiritual except for his arrogant Behavior and kind of a superiority complex. He wanted to remain a mystery to me. I wasn’t sure if he was ashamed of the Gospel?

After a Time he went back into his closet where he felt safe again. What a weak witness and testimony he had. I believe this is what they call the new Christian?

Milk Christians


IMG_20180207_194521.When I left home for college my milk man cried. He lost half his business at my parents home. I loved to drink milk. Milk helps us to grow up. Spiritual milk is good for us to as we begin to understand the elementary principles of our faith. But we are not to stay in milk mode. A Believer must grow into Christ. Do you remember when you first accepted Christ? I began studying the word of God. But the Bible seemed so large at first. It took several years to begin to understand it. I came to the Lord in 1983. And in my formative years in the faith I took in spiritual milk by the gallon. Slowly things began to take form. Suddenly I began to develop a taste for meat.Gf My next post will speak on spiritual growth.

Learning at the Feet of Merritt Dayton


When I first heard Merritt Dayton preaching my legs wanted to move out of there but my heart was under conviction. Wow! Where do I start? Merritt was even a better teacher than preacher as he got so excited as he taught that he once stomped on my foot. Merritt taught me the gospel in the early 1980’s. He was my spiritual mentor and he led me to Christ. I had savior salvation at first. Lord salvation takes a little longer. About 20 years ago Merritt passed his mantle onto me and suggested that the student had surpassed the master. I studied hard for 10 years under Merritt and from the way he lived his life I learned the gospel and what Lord salvation was all about. As of this writing Merritt is still alive at 94 years old. He can’t hear very well but he still loves the gospel. What gospel? That Jesus died for our sins according to the scriptures, that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures. The gospel that saves is from 1st Corinthians 15:1-4. I know Merritt will soon be with the Lord and hear those special words, Well done my good and faithful servant. Merritt was a survivor of the USS Indianapolis in World War II when a German submarine sank it. God spared his life when so many of his Shipmates lost their lives. God bless you Merritt Dayton!

Mary to Catholics Everywhere


You have all taken me to undeserved status. I am a simple virgin that was chosen by God to bear his physical Son. I am not the mother of God nor the queen of heaven. Jesus existed long before I gave birth to Him. The Catholics know that but choose to make me more than I am. I am a sinner saved by grace just as all you are that believe in His name. It is utter blashemy to show me in heaven sitting on the throne of God with baby Jesus in my arms. If any of you are praying to me I cannot hear your prayers. My Son is the only mediator between God and man. I dont know why Roman Catholics make more of me? They idolize me and that is wrong. Worship God for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Like you I am a sinner saved by grace. No more and no less.

What Scripture Means to Me


Give us this day our daily bread. Man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Do you Feast on your daily bread? Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart for I am called by your name. The entirety of your word is truth. This is eternal life that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. Sanctify them by your truth. Your word is truth. Preach the word. Be ready in season and out for the time will come when they will not endure sound Doctrine, because they have itching ears, they will Heap up for themselves teachers that will turn their ears away from the truth and be turned aside to Fables. The Holy Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons. In me you have peace. In the world you will have tribulation or troubles and pressures. But be of good cheer for I have overcome the world. Give us this day our daily bread. Now feast on all that you’ve learned here today.

Father Mike: Part 2


The Roman catholic Authorities are more concerned with The financial burden of the sexual abuse problem facing the church than The innocent children that have been abused. My friend father Mike Who had Abused 200 children Had no conscience About what he had done in his parish. I never saw Father Mike again. I asked just his bishop Why the police had not been called in.. His response was that we take care of our own. I thought their children were their own? The bishop told me that after 10 years in church I should’ve understood the system better. That was the last I saw of him. The system is what scares me the most. Pope Francis Even said that all new cases will be kept in the system and outside authorities would not be permitted. That is still special treatment For those that have Abused children. The church needs to let local Authorities Handle each case. But that is something the Vatican refuses to do. Until that happens don’t look for any real care change out of the RCC. I just found proof in Buffalo New York. Regular ministers don’t get this benefit if they sexually molest children.

Father Mike: Part 1


The reason why political leaders Are not commenting on this issue is votes. Democrats in particular don’t want to lose those votes Besides they favor homosexuality. I knew father Mike for 10 years in my Catholic Church in the 1970s. He and I studied the old testament often. When charges of sexual molestation came against him I was appalled. Are you defending our priest I want to ask people. I did at first. Father Mike took me aside and actually admitted to over 200 molestations that he had committed. I was shocked. He told me not to worry because the bishop was Going to transfer Him to a new parish in a few days. I told him he needed professional help. His reply was that the bishop was helping him by the transfer. He acted like nothing that he had done was wrong.I left the church and have never looked back. The Roman Catholic Church knows nothing about the doctrine of individual responsibility as found in Ezekiel 18. That was the last thing that Father Mike and I had studied together. When I mentioned that to him he just smiled In a way that sent chills up and down my spine. In his warped mind he had done nothing wrong. I will have more in Part two.

Ex Catholic Testimony


I have a rather humorous testimony about someone leaving the Catholic Church which a great many Americans are doing now. Since 1955 when 75% identified themselves with being a Catholic, the number now it’s down to 39% according to Pew research. Denominational Church has stayed about the same during that same period. Only the Buddhists have a greater decline in membership. why I left the Catholic faith is a testimony against that church. I took a friend to a Catholic Church in Columbus Ohio and she had an experience similar to the fellow in the video. She counted 22 times about being up and down and whispered to me she felt like a Jack in the Box toy. That struck me as being funny. Let us stand and let us kneel is repeated over and over again. They sacrificed Christ Weekley with that little wafer. As for purgatory Hebrews 9:27 States that it is appointed for man to die once and after that the judgment. Second Chance salvation is a Lie from the pit of Hell that the Roman Catholics promote. I coached a Catholic baseball team and the kids recited Hail Mary before each game like Mindless slaves. I once asked the boys if they knew what they were saying and they said they were told to put it to memory. Memory without understanding. Blind Devotion to Mary. There is one mediator between God and Men the man Christ Jesus. Mary Mary you are contrary.

I should add that his language is unsettling to me. He cussed frequently throughout the video. Perhaps that is what Catholicism does to people like him. It didn’t drive him from God But He sounds like a carnal Christian to me.

Bible Study Choir Practice


christian-music-ministry-clipart-8A few years ago I did a Bible study on Make a Joyful Noise unto the Lord. I examined the word noise. In our hearts everyone is an accomplished singer. When the word is put through our mouth it often comes out as a noise but a praiseful noise. All of a sudden in the classroom I asked everyone to stand and we sang the first verse of A Hymn. You could have heard a pin drop. So like on the program Gomer Pyle, I played the role of Sergeant Carter. I can’t hear you? The singing got louder. I can’t hear you? Finally the third time was a charm. The classroom had learned what the word praiseful meant. The pastor had been sitting in and thought the service that morning would be most praiseful. But by the time the morning service had begun, on the first hymn you could have heard a pin drop again. They had forgotten all about their Joyful Noise before the Lord. How very sad.
