Acts 20:28-30
Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood. I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them.
Brief Introduction

First Baptist Church of Orlando is located in Orlando Florida. The senior pastor is Dr. David Uth. Their official website is http://www.firstorlando.com/. It is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention. The SBC website is http://www.sbc.net/






Main Issues

God in the Bible says "But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good;" - 1 Thessalonians 5:21
With this scripture in mind, as a Christian whose sole allegiance is to Jesus Christ, based on scripture, the truth in love is that First Baptist Church of Orlando is not a biblically sound church, it spreads hell damning heresy, and twists scripture to support the homosexual agenda.

Very sad to see that David Uth and First Baptist Orlando hold to the Southern Baptist Convention beliefs on their website and via their "membership" but in reality compromise and dilute the message of the gospel which is of first importance and an essential belief (1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Galatians 1:6-9) with his sermons and alliances with false teachers in violation of scripture like Titus 3:10 and Romans 16:16-18.


First Baptist Church of Orlando is a great example of a church having a solid statement of beliefs on paper but when you attend the church and see whom they support and call "Christian" -it goes against the essential beliefs of a Christian. This is why we need to be diligently critical in seeking a biblically sound church by testing it against scripture based off the website, actual sermons being preached as well as affiliations - Acts 17:11, 1 John 4:1. Their website says one thing but they preach and promote a false gospel that condemns people to hell apart from God. For essentials of a Christian, please read this - https://carm.org/essential-doctrines-of-christianity


David Uth and First Baptist of Orlando do not value the purity of the gospel message and do not care about contending for the faith in light of Jude 1:3. This is seen by David Uth endorsing and inviting to speak at his church - Ben Carson. Ben Carson is a seventh day Adventist. Seventh Day Adventism is not Christian and will lead you to hell apart from God for eternity. They deny the essential belief that Jesus is God by teaching that Archangel Michael and Jesus are the same. This is an attack on the deity of Christ - John 1:1 For more on the cult Seventh Day Adventism read here  http://carm.org/seventh-day-adventism
Romans 16:16-18 is very clear yet to David Uth- the gospel and people's eternity take a back seat for politics. An overseer is supposed to watch over his flock not invite people who spread false doctrine that lead people to hell apart from God - Acts 20:28-30.

- (Video is found at the end of this post.)


In wake of the shooting at PULSE night club, First Baptist Church of Orlando held a "unity prayer vigil". The gospel and word of God was twisted and compromised to affirm the sin and homosexuals practicing homosexuality with no mention of repentance and faith in Christ for salvation. David Uth and all the other false teachers and pro-LGBT speakers said peace when there was no peace.(Jeremiah 6:14).

J.D Hall of polemics report said in response to the vigil  "
Please note: You will find absolutely no Gospel. You will find no Biblical truth. You will find no talk of repentance, sin, confession, or forgiveness. Again, you will find absolutely no semblance of Gospel. It is entirely absent from the event.

Here’s what you will find.
You will find a long string of pastors and impastors (read that: female ‘pastors’), who are systematically and one-by-one preaching the slain LGBTQXYZ individuals straight into Heaven, with no questions asked. What you will see is, in fact, a full-out assault on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. FBC Orlando, and the ministers gathered, are espousing the doctrine of justification by death.
As the LGBT crowd gathers with FBC Orlando, David Uth says, “We’ve gathered together as God’s people and as a community of faith.”

Uth then quotes 1 Thessalonians 4:13, “We grieve, but not as those without hope” and applies it to the slain LGBTQXY community. Of course, 1 Thessalonians 4 is speaking of grieving for those who are “dead in Christ” (verse 16), and not those who die in their trespasses and sins. Because of 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, we can be confident that those slain who were unrepentant in the sin of homosexuality most certainly did not die in Christ, and if we grieve for them, we can have no hope for their eternal salvation.

Uth says that what FBC Orlando was doing, in gathering the LGBT to unify in worship with them, is imitating the Scriptures. He says, “Throughout the scriptures, they were called to come together for mutual support and comfort and affirmation.” Somehow, the Scriptural references of gathering with the unrepentant sexually immoral for worship and affirmation escape me.

Dr. Larry Hillis quotes 1st Peter 2:9, applying Peters words to the church, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light” and applies it to the LGBT community of Orlando. Hillis explains, “We are a peculiar people because we know how to not let theological agreements get in the way of love.”

Most atrociously, Hillis then eludes to Ephesians 2:20, which refers to Christ as the chief cornerstone, and he asserted that in Orlando, the LGBT Community is the “Head Cornerstone.”
Another speaker, quoting the high priestly prayer of John 17 which was explicitly not prayed for the world, but for those given to Christ out of the world (verse 9), applying Jesus’ prayer to the LGBT “community.”

Sodomites who were present at the club during the shooting were asked to stand, and they were rewarded by the church with a standing ovation.
Then, the National Director for the LGBTQ Campaign Taskforce, Victoria Kirby York – got up to talk about how hard it is for the LGBTQXYZ community. What they didn’t tell the crowd is that York’s job is to lobby against the Religious Freedom Restoration Acts. Her job, in other words, is pretty much trying to ensure churches and people of faith be forced to act against their conscience in matters relating to sodomy. And there she was, preaching from behind the pulpit at FBC Orlando, scolding the church for “kicking out” kids who were gay (IE exercising Biblical church discipline) and blaming suicide rates for the LGBTQXYZ community on the church. Oh, and she says the “whosoever” in John 3:16 has no asterisk, and lesbians, gays and the transgendered are saved, too.
If I said it went down hill from there, it would be an understatement. Again, no Gospel. No talk of sin. Only affirming homosexuals in their sin and explicitly preaching them into Heaven." - http://polemicsreport.com/2016/06/15/sbc-megachurch-says-lgbt-community-is-the-chief-cornerstone/

Also very sad to note Larry G. Mills of Mt Sinai Missionary Baptist Church twisted scripture and blasphemed God by saying the LGBT is the cornerstone instead of Christ. He twisted Ephesians 2:20-21.  Mr. Larry is a false teacher and I do not encourage anyone to attend his church in light of 1 John 4:1. What ever happened to an overseer preaching the word in and out of season and rightfully dividing the word? - 2 Timothy 2:15, 2 Timothy 4:2.
This is what heretical groups like First Baptist Orlando promote. They promote a "unity" that is not Biblical by not testing all teaching against scripture, instead they twist scripture to flatter people to hell apart from God.

Jeff Maples of pulpitandpen said
- At the #LoveOrlando Citywide ecumenical prayer-fest, hosted by Southern Baptist Megachurch, FBC Orlando pastored by David Uth, pastor of Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church, in Orlando Florida, Larry G. Mills, made a rather interesting comment regarding the LGBTQXYZ community in the area. Now, keep in mind, this is the same SBC Church that hosted a Seventh Day Adventist cult member to come preach. In reference to the recent Islamic terrorist attack against our fellow Americans, Mill's, a Pastor who claims he believes the Word of God, sets aside all Scriptural truth in the name of “love.”

Therefore you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens of the saints and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the cornerstone. In Him the whole building is fitted together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord.… – Ephesians 2:19-21


This is blasphemy of the highest level. To claim that a group of people that God abominates (Leviticus 18:22) and who, unless repent of their sin, will not enter the Kingdom of God (1 Cor. 6:9-10) is in the place of the Son of God himself is to set one’s self up as anti-Christ (2 Thes 2:4). This man has exposed himself as a liar and a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Avoid!
I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. – Romans 16:17" http://pulpitandpen.org/2016/06/15/baptist-pastor-larry-g-mills-calls-lgbtq-the-head-cornerstone-a-title-reserved-for-jesus/

Here are Mr. Larry  Mill's exact words - [Transcription] "We’re not peculiar because of race or gender or creed. But in Orlando we are peculiar because of E. Pluribus Unum. Out of many come one. We are peculiar because we have leadership that knows how to fight….We are peculiar because we know how to let theological differences and disputes and factions not get in the way of love and Christ. We are peculiar…because we believe in the Word, and what others would have against us, what others would show as a stumbling stone, we’ve elevated to be the head of the corner, and right now, no matter what people [inaudible] might think, that LGBTQ area is the head cornerstone, and we are here to lift up and magnify, and allow them to know, that regardless of people’s opinion, regardless of where we are, love triumphs over evil."




The gay agenda was elevated above Christ at this false unity event. Read more on how God feels about the gay agenda here - http://www.gty.org/resources/articles/A170/gods-plan-for-the-gay-agenda





CONCLUSION

First Baptist Church of Orlando is an apostate church and does not promote and teach the true gospel according to scriptures. David Uth and Larry Mills are wolves in sheep's clothing. I pray they are led to repentance. This church and two men will lead you to hell apart from God for eternity.  This vigil promoted a false gospel that flatters people to hell apart from God. The gospel must be shared and contended for at all costs. - Jude 1:3. I encourage you to leave First Baptist church of Orlando if you are attending and find a biblically sound church that preaches the true gospel.

Brief Introduction
Saint Andrew Christian Church is located in Olathe Kansas. It is "pastored" by Erin Wathen.



Main Issues
Proverbs 14:12 - "There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death." The truth in love is that this church is not biblically sound, is false, and will lead you to hell apart from God. This "church" may make you feel "good" and "comfortable" but it is not biblically sound. God in his word calls us to go off the Bible not our feelings - 2 Timothy 3:16-17. An examination of this church's beliefs shows the "pastor" and this church do not hold to the Bible for sound and correct teaching. The basic beliefs section is not clear on essential and fundamental beliefs for a true Christian i.e beliefs that you cannot deny in order to be a true Christian. We know beliefs are important because Jesus said they were important. Read John 8:24. The basic beliefs section does not state with scripture that there is one God, the trinity, the deity of Christ ( God & man), the gospel, the literal and physical resurrection of Christ, salvation by grace through faith, etc. Those are essential beliefs. There are beliefs that you cannot deny in order to be a Christian. 


Erin Wathen is a false teacher and is not called to pastor - 1 Timothy 3, 1 Timothy 2:12-14.  Read more here - http://carm.org/email-churches-women-pastors
She also spreads a false gospel that will lead you to hell apart from God. Here is the gospel - http://www.stand4thelord.com/p/the-gospel-only-good-news-and-only.html


This church is a member of the false group - The disciples of Christ. "The Disciples of Christ (DOC), officially called the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a "denomination" emphasizing Christian unity, inclusiveness, and social action. Their official identity statement, from their website, says they are “a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world."

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) dislikes denominational labels and avoids putting Christians “in a box.” They believe that Christians can have a variety of doctrinal differences. “Unity, not uniformity,” is one of their sayings. The denomination’s official confession is short and simple, avoiding detailed assertions about doctrine beyond stating that Christ is Lord and Savior. They are a very fluid group, connecting many people of vastly different beliefs.

There is no “test of faith” to join the Christian Church. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) lets individual congregations and individual Christians believe and practice what they want. Their lack of defined doctrinal boundaries has resulted in the denomination becoming one of the most theologically liberal churches in America today. The DOC ordains women as pastors. In July 2013 the General Assembly of the Disciples of Christ passed a resolution affirming that openly homosexual individuals were welcome as members and leaders in their church. Their church has also consistently supported legalized abortion. The doctrines of heaven and hell are considered “speculative,” and the DOC takes no official position on either.

First Corinthians 15:58 says, “My dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” In their emphasis on community involvement, members of the Disciples of Christ seek to fulfill the latter half of this verse, and their commitment to Christian unity is certainly commendable. But we must not overlook the command in the first half of the verse, to “stand firm” and be immovable in our doctrine. Eschewing doctrinal statements, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has moved away from sound doctrine. How can a church “stand firm” if it doesn’t know where it stands on important issues? How can a church “test the spirits” (1 John 4:1) if there are no theological tests?" - http://www.gotquestions.org/Disciples-of-Christ.html
PLEASE FIND A CHURCH THAT HOLDS IT'S LOYALTY TO CHRIST AND HIS WORD 2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17

Brief Introduction
Joy MCC is located in Orlando Florida. The Senior "pastor" is Terri Steed Pierce. Joy MCC holds to the false doctrine promoted by the Metropolitan Community Churches found here - http://mccchurch.org/





Main Issues
God says love him with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself in Mark 12:30-31. Love rejoices in truth- 1 Corinthians 13:6. With that being said, the truth in love is that JOY MCC is a false church that promotes a false gospel that will lead you to hell apart from God . The "pastor" & "elders" of this church are wolves in sheep's clothing. What they preach and promote is not the gospel. The gospel is an essential belief and is of first importance. Without believing the gospel nobody can be saved- Galatians 1:6-9, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4

This church lies to people by saying they promote "love" and "inclusivity" . Comparing their statement of beliefs and stance on homosexuality to the Bible shows this is false. The Bible is the standard of authority on right and wrong revealed through God's nature -2 Tim 3:16-17 not your feelings. What this "church" is preaching is false because Jesus never preached it. You can see this by reading all the gospels and even the whole Bible. For example, Jesus defined marriage in Matthew 19:5-6 by repeating what he created in Genesis 2:23-24, yet this church ordains gay marriage. Why would anyone who truly believes in the true Jesus of the Bible attend a church that does not stick to the word of God?

"Reverend" Terri is a false teacher and she will have her part in the lake of fire unless she repents and believes the gospel. Women are not called to pastor either as seen in 1 Tim 2;12-14 and 1 Timothy 3. Men and women are equal but have different roles- Genesis 2, 1 Tim 2:12-14. For more, read here -http://carm.org/email-churches-women-pastors. It is not a surprise that a church that compromises in one area by not preaching the gospel goes on to twist God's word in other areas like saying homosexuality is good, natural, and God is okay with it. What this church preaches is false and will lead you to hell apart from God. God calls us to repent and believe the gospel not justify our sinful lifestyle like homosexuality and other sinful lifestyles that put Christ on the cross in the first place to save us from God's wrath- John 3:36. This false church calls good evil and evil good- Isaiah 5:20. If you attend this church, do you truly believe the gospel? http://www.stand4thelord.com/p/the-gospel-only-good-news-and-only.html
If you are thinking about attending this church, do not attend, you will be led to hell while feeling "good". There is a way that seems right to a man but in the end it leads to death- Proverbs 14:12

2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,

Brief History
Dewey Smith is the pastor of House of Hope located in Atlanta. It is also key to note that this "church" rejects God's order on how the church is to be run by ordaining women as pastors in violation of Titus 1:5-9, 1 Timothy 2:12-14, 1 Timothy 3. Churches that compromise in one area on God's word go on to compromise in other areas i.e homosexuality and abortion. Dewey Smith's church is a perfect example. For more scripture and evidence of this visit https://carm.org/denominations-women-ordination-and-other-errors and https://carm.org/email-churches-women-pastors






Response to false teacher Dewey Smith

"If you've been watching the headlines over the last couple years, you may have noticed the incredible surge of interest in affirming homosexuality. Whether it's at the heart of a religious scandal, political corruption, radical legislation, or the redefinition of marriage, homosexual interests have come to characterize America. That's an indication of the success of the gay agenda. And some Christians, including some national church leaders, have wavered on the issue even recently. But sadly, when people refuse to acknowledge the sinfulness of homosexuality—calling evil good and good evil (Isaiah 5:20)—they do so at the expense of many souls.


How should you respond to the success of the gay agenda? Should you accept the recent trend toward tolerance? Or should you side with those who exclude homosexuals with hostility and disdain?

In reality, the Bible calls for a balance between what some people think are two opposing reactions—condemnation and compassion. Really, the two together are essential elements of biblical love, and that's something the homosexual sinner desperately needs.


Homosexual advocates have been remarkably effective in selling their warped interpretations of passages in Scripture that address homosexuality. When you ask a homosexual what the Bible says about homosexuality—and many of them know—they have digested an interpretation that is not only warped, but also completely irrational. Pro-homosexual arguments from the Bible are nothing but smokescreens—as you come close, you see right through them.


God's condemnation of homosexuality is abundantly clear—He opposes it in every age.
- In the patriarchs (Genesis 19:1-28)

- In the Law of Moses (Leviticus 18:22; 20:13)

- In the Prophets (Ezekiel 16:46-50)

- In the New Testament (Romans 1:18-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Jude 7-8)


Why does God condemn homosexuality? Because it overturns God's fundamental design for human relationships—a design that pictures the complementary relationship between a man and a woman (Genesis 2:18-25; Matthew 19:4-6; Ephesians 5:22-33).

Why, then, have homosexual interpretations of Scripture been so successful at persuading so many? Simple: people want to be convinced. Since the Bible is so clear about the issue, sinners have had to defy reason and embrace error to quiet their accusing consciences (Romans 2:14-16). As Jesus said, "Men loved the darkness rather than the Light, [because] their deeds were evil" (John 3:19-20).


As a Christian, you must not compromise what the Bible says about homosexuality—ever. No matter how much you desire to be compassionate to the homosexual, your first sympathies belong to the Lord and to the exaltation of His righteousness. Homosexuals stand in defiant rebellion against the will of their Creator who from the beginning "made them male and female" (Matthew 19:4).


Don't allow yourself to be intimidated by homosexual advocates and their futile reasoning—their arguments are without substance. Homosexuals, and those who advocate that sin, are fundamentally committed to overturning the lordship of Christ in this world. But their rebellion is useless, for the Holy Spirit says, "Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God" (1 Corinthians 6:9-10; cf. Galatians 5:19-21).

So, what is God's response to the homosexual agenda?


Certain and final judgment. To claim anything else is to compromise the truth of God and deceive those who are perishing.

As you interact with homosexuals and their sympathizers, you must affirm the Bible's condemnation. You are not trying to bring damnation on the head of homosexuals, you are trying to bring conviction so that they can turn from that sin and embrace the only hope of salvation for all of us sinners—and that's through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Homosexuals need salvation. They don't need healing—homosexuality is not a disease. They don't need therapy—homosexuality is not a psychological condition. Homosexuals need forgiveness, because homosexuality is a sin.


I don't know how it happened, but a few decades ago someone branded homosexuals with the worst misnomer—"gay." Gay used to mean happy, but I can assure you, homosexuals are not happy people. They habitually seek happiness by following after destructive pleasures. There is a reason Romans 1:26 calls homosexual desire a "degrading passion." It is a lust that destroys the physical body, ruins relationships, and brings perpetual suffering to the soul—and its ultimate end is death (Romans 7:5). Homosexuals are experiencing the judgment of God (Romans 1:24, 26, 28), and thus they are very, very sad.


First Corinthians 6 is very clear about the eternal consequence for those who practice homosexuality—but there's good news. No matter what the sin is, whether homosexuality or anything else, God has provided forgiveness, salvation, and the hope of eternal life to those who repent and embrace the gospel. Right after identifying homosexuals as those who "will not inherit the kingdom of God," Paul said, "Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God" (1 Corinthians 6:11).


God's plan for many homosexuals is that they come to salvation. There were former homosexuals in the Corinthian church back in Paul's day, just as there are many former homosexuals today in my church and in faithful churches around the country. With regenerated hearts, they sit in biblical churches throughout the country praising their Savior, along with former fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, thieves, coveters, drunkards, revilers, and swindlers. Remember, such were some of you too.

What should be your response to the homosexual agenda? Make it a biblical response—confront it with the truth of Scripture that condemns homosexuality and promises eternal damnation for all who practice it. What should be your response to the homosexual? Make it a gospel response—confront him with the truth of Scripture that condemns him as a sinner, and point him to the hope of salvation through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. Stay faithful to the Lord as you respond to homosexuality by honoring His Word, and leave the results to Him." - http://www.gty.org/resources/articles/A170/gods-plan-for-the-gay-agenda

Conclusion

Dewey Smith is a false teacher who twists the word of God to suit the masses instead of preaching the word in and out of season. Hope of Atlanta is not a biblically sound church, it ordains female pastors and twists scripture in Leviticus to discourage the biblical call of condemning sin i.e homosexuality and calling for faith and repentance in Jesus Christ for salvation.

Proverbs 30:6 - "Do not add to his words,
    or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar."

2 Corinthians 11:14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.


This is a response to Candace Curry's article "Why My family Celebrates Passover" found here - https://candeerue.com/2016/04/09/why-my-family-celebrates-passover/

The mentioned article promotes the heresy and legalism of the Hebrew Roots movement. You can see this by the false doctrine promoted in the article, website- Candeerue.com and HoshannahRabbah.org. The Hebrew Roots movement seems biblically sound but is not. It dilutes the gospel.


There are many sects of the Hebrew Roots movement but the core foundation that defines this heretical movement is "their assumption  that the Church has lost its Jewish roots and is unaware that Jesus and His disciples were Jews living in obedience to the Torah. For the most part, those involved advocate the need for every believer to walk a Torah-observant life. This means that the ordinances of the Mosaic Covenant must be a central focus in the lifestyle of believers today as it was with the Old Testament Jews of Israel. Keeping the Torah includes keeping the Sabbath on the seventh day of the week (Saturday), celebrating the Jewish feasts and festivals, keeping the dietary laws, avoiding the "paganism" of Christianity (Christmas, Easter, etc.), and learning to understand the Scriptures from a Hebrew mindset. They teach that Gentile Christians have been grafted into Israel, and this is one reason every born-again believer in Jesus the Messiah is to participate in these observances. It is expressed that doing this is not required out of legalistic bondage, but out of a heart of love and obedience. However, they teach that to live a life that pleases God, this Torah-observant walk must be part of that life. The Hebrew Roots assemblies are often made up of a majority of Gentiles, including Gentile rabbis. Usually they prefer to be identified as "Messianic Christians." Many have come to the conclusion that God has "called" them to be Jewish and have accepted the theological position that the Torah (Old Testament law) is equally binding on Gentiles and Jews alike. They often wear articles of traditional Jewish clothing, practice Davidic dancing, and incorporate Hebrew names and phrases into their writing and conversations. Most reject the use of the name "Jesus" in favor of Yeshua or YHWH, claiming that these are the "true" names that God desires for Himself."
You can see this in comments made by Candace in the mentioned article like "I have always been bothered by the disconnect between “christian holidays” and what is celebrated in the Bible", "we celebrate Passover or Pesach. The short answer is super easy; because God told us to and Jesus did and then Paul reiterated it’s importance." and the statement of beliefs found on  "HoshannahRabbah.org".


It is also very important to note that many sects of the Hebrew Roots movement "elevate the Torah as the foundational teaching for the Church, which brings about the demotion of the New Testament, causing it to become secondary in importance and only to be understood in light of the Old Testament. The idea that the New Testament is faulty and relevant only in light of the Old Testament has also brought the doctrine of the Trinity under attack by many advocates of the Hebrew Roots beliefs." This represents an undeniable danger that one can fall prey to by embracing such a false movement. An eventual denial of essential beliefs. For more on essential beliefs read here - https://carm.org/essential-doctrines-of-christianity


Contrary to the false teaching Candace is promoting in this article this is what God says - "Colossians 2:16,17 says, "Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day – things which are a shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ." Romans 14:5 states, "One person regards one day above another, another regards every day alike. Each person must be fully convinced in his own mind." Scripture clearly indicates that these issues are a matter of personal choice. These verses and many others give clear evidence that the Mosaic Covenant laws and ordinances have ended. Continuing to teach that the Old Covenant is still in effect in spite of what the New Testament teaches, or twisting the New Testament to agree with the Hebrew Roots beliefs, is false teaching." Nowhere in scripture does God say observe the Passover like Candace falsely claimed God called her to do and it is a "responsibility".

Don't get me wrong , it is beneficial to study the Passover "and could be beneficial to celebrate it if it leads to a greater understanding and appreciation for Christ’s death and resurrection. The Passover is a wonderful picture of Christ’s atonement for His people and His deliverance of us from the bondage of sin. That is something we should celebrate every day of our lives." That is not the problem. The problem is where this need to celebrate the Passover is coming from - the Hebrew Roots movement.

To identify with Israel is different from identifying "as" Israel. The website- HoshannahRabbah.org"  Candace quoted from teaches that Gentile believers are grafted into the Judaism of the Mosaic Covenant (visit the site and look at their beliefs). This is false and classic Hebrew Roots movement teaching. "Gentile believers are not grafted into the Judaism of the Mosaic Covenant; they are grafted into the seed and faith of Abraham, which preceded the Law and Jewish customs. They are fellow citizens with the saints (Ephesians 2:19), but they are not Jews. Paul explains this clearly when he tells those who were circumcised (the Jews) "not to seek to be uncircumcised" and those who were uncircumcised (the Gentiles) "not to become circumcised" (1 Corinthians 7:18). There is no need for either group to feel they must become what they are not. Instead, God has made Jews and Gentiles into "one new man" in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:15). This "new man" is referring to the Church, the body of Christ, which is made up of neither Jew nor Gentile (Galatians 3:27-29). It's important for Jews and Gentiles to remain authentic in their own identity. In this way a clear picture of the unity of the body of Christ can be seen as Jews and Gentiles are united by one Lord, one faith, one baptism. If Gentiles are grafted into Israel, becoming Jews, the purpose and picture of both Jew and Gentile, coming together as one new man, is lost. God never intended Gentiles to become one in Israel, but one in Christ."

Candace and Nate (Candace's husband) are simply misleading people and lying to people by promoting this. What they are promoting is heretical and dangerous. "It's dangerous in its implication that keeping the Old Covenant law is walking a "higher path" and is the only way to please God and receive His blessings. Nowhere in the Bible do we find Gentile believers being instructed to follow Levitical laws or Jewish customs; in fact, the opposite is taught. Romans 7:6 says, "But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code." Christ, in keeping perfectly every ordinance of the Mosaic Law, completely fulfilled it. Just as making the final payment on a home fulfills that contract and ends one’s obligation to it, so also Christ has made the final payment and has fulfilled the law, bringing it to an end for us all."


Candace, you formed a group on Facebook called "RUCKUS" a false group that promoted unbiblical unity with campus ministries that preached a false gospel that leads people to hell apart from God. The gospel is an essential belief, you cannot deny that and be a Christian. You also cowardly gave Nate Curry the words to say to me claiming I was not a Christian when he lacked the fortitude of a God fearing man to confront me about my comments on Facebook in person when I was contending for the gospel with regards to the Torah and keeping it. At the time I did not know what you guys were believing but I knew it was not the pure gospel. I have been a victim of you and Nate's legalism and gossip and I will no longer stand by, keep silent, and watch you guys mislead others. Why are you guys always misled by every strange doctrine? First ruckus, now the Hebrew Roots movement?  Ephesians 4:14. Nate, also it is public record how I refuted you when you attempted to assassinate my character when I confided in you with the big trial in my life (Proverbs 20:19, Proverbs 16:29). Most messages between us have been saved. It won't be a problem to release them if need be to expose your false allegations and lies.


You both will reap what you sow and I encourage you both to question if you truly know Christ and if you do repent and cling to the purity of the gospel. Not everyone is called to be a teacher - 2 Corinthians 13:5, James 3:1 and you both do not promote the purity of the gospel as seen by your endorsement of the heretical movement- the Hebrew Roots movement. You both will be judged for the evil you do in the body of Christ if indeed you are Christians - 2 Corinthians 5:10
