Writings by David J. Stewart
I Never Knew You
“God Almighty never intended that the devil should triumph over the Church. He never intended that the saloons should walk rough-shod over Christianity. And if you think that anybody is going to frighten me, you don't know me yet.” —Billy Sunday, The Need for Revivals.
Are Only The
Manuscripts Without Error?
“Suppose I did no more than you do, then no people would ever be converted through my efforts; I would fold my arms and rust out. A revival helps to bring the unsaved to Jesus Christ.” —Evangelist Billy Sunday
Why Lordship Salvation Is Wrong!
“Let's quit fiddling with religion and do something to bring the world to Christ.” —Evangelist Billy Sunday
"I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth." —Revelation 3:15-16
“Trying to run a church without revivals can be done when you can run a gasoline engine on buttermilk.” —Evangelist Billy Sunday
“Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?” —Psalm 94:16
Love Of The Truth
(...more articles by David J. Stewart)
“There are a lot of people in church, doubtless, who have denied themselves - self-denial for comfort and convenience. There are a lot of people here who never make any sacrifices for Jesus Christ. They will not suffer any reproaches for Jesus Christ. Paul says, “I love to suffer reproaches for Christ” (e.g., Rom. 8:17). The Bible says, "Woe unto you when all men shall speak well of you" (Luke 6:26). “Blessed are you when your enemies persecute you” (Matt. 5). That is one trouble in the churches of God today. They are not willing to suffer reproach for God's sake. It would be a godsend if the Church would suffer persecution today; she hasn't suffered it for hundreds of years. She is growing rich and lagging behind. Going back.”
—Evangelist Billy Sunday, from the sermon The Need of Revivals.
Covet The Best Gifts!
(an excellent practical MP3 sermon by Pastor Jack Hyles)
Jeremiah 45:5,“And seekest thou great things for thyself?seek them not: for, behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the LORD: but thy life will I give unto thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest.”
The gifts of the Spirit are not given TO ME, but THROUGH ME!
I don't covet the best gifts for me; but rather, for OTHERS, so that those gifts may be given through me!
The gifts (FRUIT) of the Spirit aren't given to me; but rather, to YOU through me!
God didn't have me in mind when He gave me the gifts of the Spirit; but rather, He had you in mind!
Bible Version Dilemma
I can understand why liberals, new evangelicals and other unbelievers prefer modern versions; but for the life of me I cannot understand why professing fundamentalists want a Bible with many verses and thousands of words missing.
Furthermore, they all teach some false doctrine (though many loudly proclaim these phony Bibles alter no doctrine). For example, look at John 7:8 in the NASV (the folks at Bob Jones assure us that this represents the best text). Jesus' brothers were urging Him to go up to the feast. The NASV says, "Go up to the feast yourselves. I do not go up to this feast..." In verse10, it records that Jesus went up to the feast. If the NASV doesn't make the Son of God to be a liar, language means nothing. It makes Him say He wasn't going when in fact He clearly intended to go all along. The KJV says, "Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet..." One little three letter word makes all the difference in the world. Which rendering do you think accords with the truth and the true nature of Jesus Christ? You don't have to know any Greek to understand this! Do you think Jesus could ever lie? The NIV has the word "yet" in the text, but there is a footnote which says "some early mss omit 'yet'." Yes, and they are the same two manuscripts (not a lot like they would have you believe) from which all modern versions come. There is only one Bible, one pure text and it is in the King James Version.
“I've stood for more sneers and scoffs and insults and had my life threatened from one end of the land to the other by this God-forsaken gang of thugs and cutthroats because I have come out uncompromisingly against them.”
—Billy Sunday, speaking out against the cursed booze industry.

“If [God] has work for me to do, I cannot die.”

1st Thessalonians 5:17, “Pray without ceasing.”
The Most Misunderstood Passage in the Bible . . . JAMES CHAPTER 2
Do you know why the Bible commands us to PRAY WITHOUT CEASING? I believe it is because there is simply too much to pray about. Prayer is work, plain and simple, which is why most believers don't do it. Prayerlessness is akin to the sin of atheism, because atheists don't pray either. Philippians 4:6-7 teach for Christians to pray about everything, placing all matters into God's hands; that we may have the peace of God, which passeth ALL UNDERSTANDING.
It is easier to get a large amount of work done if you break it up into smaller amounts. I believe this is why God tells us to pray without ceasing. Prayer is the most important thing we do in our daily life. Jesus told the disciples to pray that they enter not into temptation. Matthew 26:41, “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Pray, pray, pray my friend. ~David J. Stewart

Whatever comes our way. Whatever
battle we have raging inside us. We always have a choice.
It's the choices that make us who we are, and we can always choose to do what is right.
“Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.” —Psalm 40:4
“...I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.” —Matthew 13:35
Religion wants to fit us with glasses; the Lord wants to open our eyes. Religion, if it shows us the Word of God at all, shows it to us through a filter of tradition. The Lord wants us to be free to preach and believe the Word as it is!!!
