“Comments About ‘Bonesman’ Stratton (Updated)

 

Update: I was noticing earlier this year the search-engine terms with which people came to my blog from places like Google, and noticed today that somebody had come in using the search phrase, “Is Dan Stratton a Freemason?” The answer to that question is a resounding YES, but what’s more, he is an admitted (and confirmed) member of the ultra-masonic cult known as the Skull and Bones Society (aka, “The Brotherhood of Death”).

This satanic cult is on the “darkest side” of the masonic world, because whereas “standard” Freemasons worship Lucifer as the angel of light (though lower-level masons are ignorant of this fact), the “Bonesmen” knowingly worship the same spirit by his God-given fallen name: satan (lower-case first letter of his name being intentional on my part, for I refuse to capitalize the names of demons and fallen angels). Due to this fact, and the positions of importance its members achieve in various areas of society, the S&B is often considered by researchers as an “ultra-masonic” organization. Regardless, both Freemasons and Skull and Bones members have the same characteristic of being anti-Christ organizations, bent on forming a “New World Order.” Therefore, the unrepentant members of both will end up in the same Lake of Fire into which their ‘master’ is destined to plunge:

Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone….The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever….And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire…. “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” (Revelation 19:20; 20:10, 25; 21:8 NKJV)

So in short, Dan Stratton was certainly NEVER a Christian (much less a Christian minister, as he professes himself to be). I have known Dan Stratton personally, and have also researched the S&B fairly extensively. Stratton’s initiation rites into that satanic cult required him to swear total allegiance to the enemy of our souls, satan himself. Thus, unless he repents and renounces that black cult publicly and exposes their hidden secrets, he is to be shunned as a false-brother and false apostle—as I will elaborate concerning even further below. (End update)


Introducing Dan Stratton

Former Paradigm Seed Publishers author Dan Stratton is the founder of the business group called the “ProVision Network” (aka PVN), and also of “Faith Exchange Fellowship” (aka FEF) which purports itself to be a church. He recently stated publicly that he is still and active member of the Skull and Bones, a satanic order he had originally joined as a junior attending Yale University. (To view Stratton’s 700 Club interview where he readily admits his membership therein, click here, or visit the CBN web page about him and click on watch video.) Consequently, the book Divine ProVision formerly published by Paradigm Seed Publishers has been removed from the market indefinitely.

Stratton’s admitted active involvement in what has been well-documented to be a satanic cult is a clear violation of many Biblical precepts and precedents, including most notably:

Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf.

Consider the people of Israel: Do not those who eat the sacrifices participate in the altar? Do I mean then that a sacrifice offered to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons. Are we trying to arouse the Lord’s jealousy? Are we stronger than he? (1 Corinthians 10:14-22, NIV, emphasis added)

It is a clear Biblical truth that one cannot simultaneously be a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ (i.e. Christian, and especially a Christian minister) and an active member of a demonic organization too. Moreover, ALL researchers agree that the practices of the S&B are clearly demonic, as the following (two from the History Channel) exposés also point out very clearly:

Let me be very clear in where I stand therefore: I, Rich Vermillion, fully renounce all ties to Dan Stratton. I also strongly repudiate his active involvement in the Skull and Bones satanic secret society.

Please note also that I actually wrote the book Divine ProVision, even solely authoring about 60% of its content—even thought I originally agreed to let Stratton have “top billing” on the cover. Therefore I have a large investment of myself and my time into that project (Stratton’s 40% came primarily from our firm’s transcriptions of his tapes).

Consequently, I also had a very significant financial stake in this book project. But when Stratton “came out of the closet” with his satanic activities (I did NOT know about his active S&B membership when I wrote the book), I no longer wanted to associate with him any more than the Publisher did. I readily agreed with the publisher’s board of directors—of which I was one—that the book should be removed from print, regardless of any financial loss I incurred as a result.

Moreover, in the light of all that I learned about Stratton through our association—and later from other former associates of his and through researching his S&B membership—I have also personally concluded that he is not a Christian (nor probably ever was). In my educated opinion, Stratton qualifies as a “false apostle” in accordance with the Scriptures:

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works. (2 Corinthians 11:13-15, NKJV)

If Satan himself can put on a “church face” and “play holy” for a while with an agenda to deceive and ensnare, then it is not very difficult to comprehend that one of his agents can knowingly be an impostor sent to infiltrate the Body of Christ for satanic purposes.

Moreover, I do not care WHO endorses the man…whether nationally known ministers, government officials, or notable authors—to even include Kenneth Copeland (who I have also personally known) and Doug Wead (who is closely associated with several other S&B cult members as well).

Scripture and significant third-party evidence, added to the “bad fruit” and public professions of Stratton himself, clearly exposes Stratton’s true nature—regardless of his “endorsements.” In fact, I consider all such endorsements “red flags” concerning the supporter’s own spiritual condition, integrity, and personal agenda (and in the case of Kenneth Copeland, I have started a separate blog to confront the sins I am personally aware of within his life and “ministry”). So if anything, I am very wary of Stratton’s “endorsers” and quite suspicious of their judgment and true agendas—but NOT doubtful of the obvious evidence concerning Stratton. The Word of God is to be our anchor of truth, and not the so-called “endorsements” of questionable “Christian celebrities.”

Again, as a minister of the Gospel, I do NOT believe Dan Stratton is a bona fide Christian, but rather what the Bible refers to as a “false brother”:

But it was because of the false brethren secretly brought in, who had sneaked in to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, in order to bring us into bondage. But we did not yield in subjection to them for even an hour, so that the truth of the gospel would remain with you. (Galatians 2:4-5, NASB)

See also 2 Corinthians 11:26, and compare with Jude2 Peter 21 John 3:4-10; 4:1-6)

But to give you an additional “witness” in this matter, let me also suggest another third-party resource that I think will be very informative regarding this issue of the Skull and Bones (and specifically about Stratton himself):

Comments Have Been Coming In

Of course, comments have begun to come in since Paradigm Seed Publishers posted its announcement about false-apostle Dan Stratton’s professed membership in the satanic cult, the Skull and Bones, and its removal of the book Divine ProVision from the market.

Most comments directed to me to date have been positive, but most were conveyed “offline.” One brother, however, went ahead and posted his comment on my blog here at RichVermillion.com (on the Welcome page, actually) since he did not have anywhere else to express himself. Being a former member of Stratton’s so-called “church” this guy is obviously passionate about this issue. (Note: I had to move John Ramaine’s comment to this post because the Welcome page did not seem an appropriate place to leave it.)

Consequently, I am posting this particular article be a place where other people can post their comments about this important issue.

Once you have reviewed the information within this article, feel free to post an educated comment to this blog about this very alarming issue if you would like.

Rich—

  1. Having read Rich’s article on Dan Stratton and Stratton’s association with the Skull and Bones fraternity on the Paradigm Seed Publisher’s website previously, I can only say that this proves the point which Jesus spoke of in that there are many wolves in sheep’s clothing. What strikes me as interesting is Stratton’s misleading statement of never having been forced to make a vow. This is where the deception begins.

    Watching Stratton’s interview on the 700 Club, I can see how people could be mislead into thinking that his participation in the cult is leading many to the Gospel. The underlying truth of the matter is that his vow on bended knee to a the Skull and Bones was never forced upon him since he HAD GIVEN HIS ALLEGIANCE VOLUNTARILY. Some may add that this was done before his commitment to Christ, yet one has to wonder how committed his life to the Gospel really is since he is still maintaining his association with the Brotherhood of Death. Any association with that organization takes precedence over the gospel and anything else Stratton supposedly brings to the table. Their agenda comes first. Having read the history of the S/B and how they are neck deep in the process of accelerating the New World Order, I can only say that Stratton’s participation in “Preaching the Gospel” is a mandate set by organizations, such as Skull & Bones, to deceive the brotherhood of true believers. Having gone to Stratton’s ‘church’ and knowing a few of the people who still attend ( there is a 95% turnover rating in that church every two years, the 5% are people that I know) I can only say that the information on the Paradigm website will be informative in exposing people like Stratton.

    There are many within the Body of Christ who know this information and live in the denial of what this all means. They know the association and Stratton’s refusal to break free from this and to disassociate himself from his so-called “Yale Buddies,” yet they still conduct business with him and participate in his ‘ProVision Network’ cover. If believers would only take the time to study the informative links in Rich’s other article, they would be able to make up their own minds and start the process cleaning house.

    Stratton himself is NOT DECEIVED. He knows exactly what he is doing. He had been called to the carpet many times from believers within his own ‘church’ to come clean. These are people that did their homework. They did not want this ‘Pastor’ to speak into their lives any longer. I can only say that these people have left the church only to grow to greater heights spiritually.

    To the remaining people of Faith Exchange Fellowship I say this to you: GET OUT!

  2. (Rich note about this comment post: It’s a bit long…and I added my own comments at the end to clear things up. Taken together, this is probably worth your time reading if you are interested in the subject of the Skull and Bones in general, and/or this Dan Stratton person specifically. The few things in [brackets] are edits I did in the person’s original post, which I will subsequently explain within my own comments further below.)

    When you receive information like this, you need to personally seek God for an answer so that He can direct you. It is sad to know that many recieved this information and made a choice for themselves instead of seeking God Himself for instruction. Don’t be the Lord of your life. Let God instruct you on what to do and don’t assume you know what you need to do. Now with that said, I would like you to read what my wife wrote to my cousin who gave me this information about Pastor Dan Stratton.

    I’ll just start off by saying everything I’m about to write is written in love. If you sense any anger in any of this, know that it is directed at Satan and his lies, not at you. I’ve read all the articles you sent, plus a few others, with an open mind, and I have to tell you that all of it, including your messages, strike me as mostly conjecture and judgment, not truth. Let me explain…

    1 John 4:2 says that every spirit that confesses that Jesus/[Yeshua] Messiah has come in the flesh is of Elohim, and every spirit that does not confess that [Yeshua] Messiah has come in the flesh is not of Elohim. That’s truth, right? And I’m sure you’ll remember that Pastor Dan confesses this truth every single time he has a service… and the vast majority of these services end with the invitation and instruction for every member of the congregation to also confess this truth.

    1 John 4:15 says that whoever confesses that [Yeshua] is the Son of Elohim, Elohim stays in him, and he in Elohim (sorry, I’m in the Scriptures translation). Truth #2. Again, Pastor Dan regularly confesses this truth and fellowships with other leaders in the Body of Christ who do the same.

    Now, I could just end my email right here. This is enough proof for me to know that I’m under the right pastor. But in case you’re not convinced… I’d like to ask you some questions about the sources of these accusations you’re bringing to our attention. What do you know about Rich Vermillion, from personal, first-hand experience? I know that the Word says not to sow discord among the brethren, which is what he is actively doing by publishing all these articles about PD. Doesn’t the Word say to refrain from gossip and backbiting, and to love and pray for your enemies, and do good to them, in order to heap coals upon their heads? And of course, “judge not lest ye be judged.” But he is too busy demonizing PD to remember those scriptures I guess.

    And how much do you know about Kabbalah? A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. I’m sure you’d agree that most, if not all, religions, have a piece of the truth, which is why they are so deceptive…. so who are you to say that PD’s knowledge of Kabbalah, which seems to be more extensive than yours, has no truth in it, especially when he is using it to further prove his overall point: that the Word is true! The Word is final authority. He daily challenges us to read and study the Word for ourselves, being led by the Holy Spirit, who will lead us and guide us into all truth. That sums up his entire ministry, and whenever he does teach Hebrew, which is not really that often, he uses it to further demonstrate that point.

    And then there’s Skull & Bones… how do you know that everything you’ve read about them and their activities is true? What real proof do you have? But even so, let’s assume the worst. Let’s say it is full of satanists who are day by day pushing us closer to the New World Order and PD is in on it. a) why would he openly admit his membership and draw attention to himself when he could easily conceal it? b) why wouldn’t his fellow bonesman have paid for not one, but multiple buildings in NYC and worldwide by now? c) why doesn’t he have a megachurch, or several? d) why would he stick so close to the Scriptures, often reading entire chapters uninterrupted, service after service, for weeks, instruct his congregation to do the same and teach us to revere the Word? e) why wouldn’t he be teaching a lot more Kabbalah and introducing at least some of us to his source texts — on the contrary, he admits that some of it is Kabbalah-esque and warns us not to get too much into it but rather to stick to the Word. f) why would he often invite other preachers of the Word to come and minister in his pulpit? … this list could go on an on…

    Isn’t there a greater possibility that, since S&B considers their membership to be “for life” and they forbid members to speak about their activities, PD’s denouncement of them might cause them to hunt him down every day until they kill him? (which wouldn’t take long if they have all that power) And maybe [God] is allowing him to keep relatively quite because he does have a plan for PD to minister to some of the people in that group… would you go so far as to say you know, in truth, that all of them are beyond salvation? Don’t forget that even [Yeshua] had to suppress his true identity and ministry until the appointed time, so that he wouldn’t be killed prematurely.

    And my last point for now, is that the fact that we’re even having this passionate discussion, using Scriptures, and doing our best to walk in love, is a credit to what PD has taught us. Think about all the people who have left FEF because of this or another offense/accusation… wouldn’t you say that at least 90% of them are still seeking hard after God, that they love the word, and that they grew spiritually under his teaching? Have any of them become Kabbahlists or Satanists? I doubt it. PD has obviously sinned in his past, and will do so again I’m sure, but I don’t see how anyone truly led of the Holy Spirit could deny that he is doing his best to serve [God] and allow Him to use him to set people free.

    Heaven and earth will pass away, but the Word will never pass away, so if you still feel that PD is in the wrong, at the very least, just stick to reading the Word and stop spreading half-truths and gossip about him. And tell everyone else who’s perpetuating this stuff to do the same. If there’s even the slightest possibility that you’re wrong the punishments are severe, according to the Word.

    And again, all of this is said in love and humility, but as you said below, love doesn’t always feel good. I believe your motives in all of this are pure, but your perspective may be skewed.
    Not that I pretend to know and understand everything either… I welcome any truths you may have that shed further light on this whole situation.

    Rich Note: Hello there, Mr. Lewinson. I have been wondering when a pro-Dan Stratton commentator would post something, and though it took a while, you have certainly filled the bill. 😉 Although I know you mean well, please forgive me for saying that you are terribly misguided. Moreover, please forgive me in advance for detailing that somewhat in the remainder of my note below:

    My assumption is that you are directly responding to Mr. Ramaine’s earlier post with your own, because you said “What do you know about Rich Vermillion, from personal, first-hand experience?” Since I am Rich Vermillion, I can safely say I have known him all my life (chuckle). Thus, I presume you are responding to Mr. Ramaine rather than to the data provided on this and the publisher’s website. I conclude this also because it seems apparent that you are a current member of the Faith Exchange Fellowship (FEF) and were responding to that former founding-member’s note about Stratton. Nevertheless, I’ll take the liberty to address a few issues here for clarification since it is on my website you posted your comment. (And I presume Mr. Ramaine might also eventually come along and add another post below this one to add his own thoughts regarding your posted comment.)

    Regarding that data, none of it is rumor or conjecture. I have firsthand knowledge of just about everything I have written to date on the subject. Dan Stratton’s active involvement in the Skull and Bones seems to be a known issue with you, so that fact need not be discussed further here.

    Given the vast body of information available, and the fact that much of it was provided by ‘bonesmen’ themselves as well as other firsthand witnesses, your conjectures that the nature of the Skull and Bones satanic order might be benign, are quite unfounded. Absolutely NOTHING about the Skull and Bones written by any researcher or historian is positive that I have found. Everything in their initiation rites is satanic, and their organization is run “like the Mafia” as most researchers attest. So, what is Christian about that? Nothing. Thus, according to the Scriptures any bona fide Christian should renounce it and move on. Mr. Stratton has not done so to date. (See my post called The REAL Gospel for more on that subject.)

    You addressed the issue of whether we should “judge” another person. Jesus said, “Judge not according to appearances, but judge righteous judgment.” Thus, we are actually supposed to judge these things…but only righteously (i.e. in light of Scripture and bona fide facts). Jesus also told us there would be false prophets and teachers infiltrating the Body of Christ in the last days, and that we were to “know them by their fruits” (i.e. examine them closely, and judge accordingly). The apostle Paul wrote in several of his epistles about confrontations with “false brethren” which he said in Galatians “had crept in unawares (i.e. secretly).” Paul wrote elsewhere, “If anyone is called a brother, but is covetous, an idolater, (etc.) separate yourselves from them and don’t even eat with them.” Since Paul wrote that, do we not have to also “judge” those people in order to determine to stay away from them?

    Even the “Apostle of Love” named John wrote in 1 John about how to “test the spirits to see whether they are of God,” but he also gave details on how to judge ‘brethren’ to see whether they are actually saved or not. “He who practices sin is of the devil” is a part of that discourse. In 3 John, he actually told the man to whom he wrote to change churches since the pastor where he was attending was wicked saying, “follow not that which is evil, but that which is good.” John even recommended to that same man an honest pastor for him to hook up with instead, named Demetrius.

    Read 2 Peter and the book of Jude for even more eye-opening revelations about false brethren, false teachers, and false prophets. The fact that the Scriptures call them “false” means that they look good, sound good, and even sometimes “do good” (to be seen of men)—but they are actually “wolves in sheep’s clothing” (i.e. they look like Christians but are NOT…and their real motive is to devour.)

    In short, the ENTIRE NEW TESTAMENT is full of admonitions to be wary in these last days of those who would infiltrate the church to “bring us into captivity.” Your note, though well-meaning, does not seem to indicate that you grasp these truths from the Word of God. Even Jesus said to one of the churches in Revelation, “You tested those who said they are apostles and are not, and found them liars.” So, if that is an issue of today (and Paul told Timothy it would be, as well as Peter and Jude attested also), then why have we not heard more teaching on this subject? Could it be that the Church has been lulled into a place of susceptibility to such ‘wolves’ by the enemy? Could there even be more false teachers in the Body of Christ than we have been formerly aware? (It is something to somberly ponder, for sure.)

    Moreover, why not analyze the evidence in cases such as Dan Stratton to see if there is cause to be concerned? Why would “Love Himself” (remember, “God is Love”) tell us over and over again in the New Testament to pay attention to these things if we would be violating the love commandment by so doing? Actually, to ignore the facts and allow a false brother/apostle to continue unchallenged is a clear violation of the love commandment towards those who will be perverted by their influence…and to the Lord Jesus Christ Himself Who purchased those “led astray sheep” with His Own Blood.

    Regarding the Kabbalah issue, every false teaching has a basis in truth. As it has been often said, “rat poisoning is actually 98% good corn.” You wrote, “…so who are you to say that PD’s knowledge of Kabbalah, which seems to be more extensive than yours, has no truth in it, especially when he is using it to further prove his overall point: that the Word is true!” This means, Mr. Lewinson, that you are ready to eat the 2% that will kill you, just to justify the 98% of “good corn” that would be wasted otherwise. Read Paul’s writings in the Scriptures, and you will see he did NOT play games with heretics—and in the light of the Scriptures, many believe Dan Stratton is a heretic. Jewish sources have discussed Kabbalah with me, and it is pure witchcraft with biblical perversion at its core. There is plenty of information also on the Internet about it. To simply keep “eating it” week after week thinking it is “good corn” is insane, when you can do a little “Googling” around and find out the poison for yourself. The Bible clearly says, “Do not sow mingled seed in your field” and Jesus said, “Be careful what you hear…”. (Take the time to look these passages up and study them for yourself. I am refraining from providing all the references to the Scriptures quoted herein in order to encourage you to study your own Bible directly—and more thoroughly.)

    You also mentioned the issue of spreading “strife among the brethren.” Well, since I have the Bible to back up what I said with regard to testing and challenging a false apostle/brother for their error, I am on safe grounds in that regard. Again, why would “Love Himself” tell us to do so if it were not true love? Believe it or not, the Bible actually tells us to “contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints.” Contention and “strife” are biblically appropriate in many situations—especially when confronting those in error. Why else did Jesus cast out the money changers from the temple? Why did Paul confront the false brethren he mentioned in his epistles? Why did he even rebuke the apostle Peter publicly (as recorded in Galatians) if it was not true love to do so?

    Furthermore, having known Dan Stratton fairly well (and working with him closely for nearly two years—remember, I did write a book with him), and having studied the Skull and Bones in detail in the light of MANY Scriptures (and, moreover, I am a minister), I am personally convinced that he was never truly saved…as I indicated in detail formerly at the bottom of my post on the publisher’s website. Thus, I am safe on that account also because I am not “striving with a brother” or spreading contention “among the brethren.” Examination of “fruit” and confrontation of error are safe grounds biblically.

    Also remember it is repentance and faith in the REAL Jesus that saves a person, not prayer or profession of His Name alone. (Moreover, not that wacky version of “His Name” that Stratton has come up with—which NO Jewish believer has heard of outside of Kabbalah—and which I have edited out of your comment above). Let me emphasize that it is NOT just a quick “prayer” that gets one saved—it is faith in the real Jesus (Yeshua) and acceptance of His Lordship in one’s life. Again, see The REAL Gospel for details on real salvation. However, let me just go ahead and give you a clear Scripture here from Matthew 7:15-23, NIV, to help you get started:

    “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them. Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'”

    So, false brethren can even preach and do miracles in “His Name” and find themselves heading to a lake of fire. This does not make for a “fun” eternity, so I recommend you take heed and consider the implications of attending Dan Stratton’s church. (That is probably why your wife’s cousin cared enough for you both to send you the information in the first place. Love wrote that info through me, and love emailed it to you through your cousin. Please, pay attention to it.)

    On that note, let me be really clear: I am truly concerned for the man’s soul—and the souls of those he is influencing, including the souls of you and your wife. Remember: Dan Stratton is trained in the occult through the Skull and Bones, and has a degree in acting and psychology from Yale. He can be very convincing and deceiving when he applies himself (ask me how I know). Thus, this heightens my concern all the more for those he influences…including yourselves.

    Well, I know you mean well Mr. Lewinson. Nevertheless, you are ignoring HUGE sections of the New Testament in making your point. It sometimes amazes me how Pentecostals and Charasmatic Christians will criticize Baptists (and others) for ignoring large portions of text about the Holy Spirit and His gifts, yet do the same thing to coddle their own pet doctrines and beliefs. The too-common unbalanced “love” teaching so prevalent in “Word of Faith” and Charasmatic circles is certainly a prime example.

    (In fact, if you are to accept how some people teach their version of “walking in love,” you would have to also conclude that Jesus Himself needs to ‘repent’ for rebuking the Pharisees so often and for chasing the “thieves and robbers” out of the temple enclosure. Of course, that would be ridiculous! In short, TRUE LOVE knows how and when to “make a whip out of cords” and defend God’s Church from those who would exploit it.)

    I, for one, will go with the entirety of Scripture and study it thoroughly to apply it in all aspect of my life as best as I can (including a balanced understanding of how to show true love towards the brethren). Moreover, since Paul, Peter, Jude, John, and even JESUS HIMSELF told us what to watch for in these last days (i.e. false apostles/prophets/teachers/brethren, apostasy, heresy, etc.) I am paying VERY CLOSE attention to watch for these things—both in the Scriptures and in the Body of Christ—as we see the Day of the Lord approaching. I humbly recommend that you do the same.

    Lastly, I am very glad you posted your comment because it gave me an opportunity to not only minister to you personally (presuming you read this again), but also an opportunity to directly address the additional issues which you raised within your note above for the benefit of all who may read this. May God’s wisdom fully illuminate this—and every—issue through His Word for ALL those who honestly seek His truth. (And, of course, that also includes me.)

  3. Rich Note: I was away from my blog for a while, and found this reply from Orville Lewinson awaiting my approval in the comments queue. I was only just now able to release it for others to see. Sorry for the delay. My necessary edits are in [brackets], and my further notes are at the bottom.

    Rich, I first would like to thank you for taking the time to comment back to me. I know without a doubt that you’re doing this in love. (By the way, the comment wasn’t for John Ramaine. It really was for my cousin who also use to attend FEF) Now I will continue to look through the Word and listen for the Holy Spirit to instruct me, because He’s the One I can truly rely on. I will say to you what I said to my cousin….

    [God] always enjoyed the fact that I was never religious. I didn’t know much about church growing up, so whenever someone gave me info about something, I would go directly to Yhwh and ask for His instruction. This is the same thing I did when I received your information.
    “[God], what do you want me to do?”
    Many people assume they know what to do, but that is very dangerous! Many left FEF assuming the answers was obvious that they were suppose to leave, and at first I felt the same way, but then I remembered to do the one thing that always seemed so simple… I ask God.
    I obeyed Him when he said leave First Holiness church, I obeyed Him when He said, leave Grace International, I obeyed Him when He said stay in FEF, stay with Julia (ex girlfriend), stay with Ruben (was with an indie label and the CEO, Ruben, was really not a man of God),even when the answer at that time seemed obvious. Because I was obedient to Yhwh, I now see why He instructed me the way He did.
    The reasons:
    Church: I was seeking God for a church to go to and He brought me to FEF, and I’ve really grown spiritually, more than ever before, and also found my beautiful wife there.
    Ex-girl- Staying with my ex, at the time God told me to stay with her, really helped her to grow, as well as helped me to appreciate my current wife now. (The relationship with my ex was a challenge, but it was a learning process.)
    Ruben (indie label)- Staying with Ruben really was also a learning process for me, and now I’ve really devoloped as a rap artist and now I’m working with other artists trying to accomplish big things together.

    So what am I saying here? What I said in the beginning of my first comment. I’m always seeking God for His instructions and not just assume I know the answer. Now if PD, like you said, is a false prophet, then I know the Holy Spirit, like he’s done in the past, will instruct me. If it turns out that, just like Ruben, he’s (PD) really not for God, then the reason I’m at FEF, is for some valuable things God wants me to learn and then I’ll move on when he instructs me.
    My wife and I didn’t just read the info and then make a decision based on it, we personally seeked God and asked Him if we should leave FEF. Yes, we actually asked Him if we should leave, and if He didn’t tell us to stay, we would’ve been out the door. There’s so much info out there, and sometimes it’s hard to see what’s truth and what’s a lie. This is why my wife and I personally seeked Him for instructions, and with God being our source, we will continue to do not what we want to do, but what He wants us to do.

    Let me end with this… I will continue to go through the word and will continue to do that one simple thing God always loved about me, which is to ask Him for instruction on what to do. I am his slave.
    I love PD very much and I’ve developed a close relationship with God because of PD’s teaching; And now I know my Shepherds Voice. I will continue to pray for PD, and will continue to seek God’s instruction, but if God is telling me to stay, then I will stay. Now I don’t know if your response will state that I’m hearing from the wrong spirit, which I’m guessing you might say; But I truly believe I know His Voice, and just like He’s done before, He will show me in the end why He instructed me to stay.
    Thank you for your time. Let us continue to crave God, so that we will recognize His Voice.
    Love Ya!!!!!!!

    Rich Note: Orville, I appreciate your sincerity and desire to do all of God’s will. I also appreciate your general openness to instruction, and your willingness to run to God in prayer with everything. That is to be commended.

    I have only a few minutes to reply, so I will leave you with this thought alone for now as you seek God about these things: You never have to pray about obeying God’s written word. It was given to us to be a guiding light, for the word is a “lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” We are to walk through life in obedience to His written Word first and foremost, for it is only then that we have a proper “measuring stick” with which to “try the spirits to see whether they are of God.” The Lord never tells us to do something contrary to His Word.

    Those things that are quite plain in the Scriptures are to be obeyed first, then we seek Him for those things not spelled out in detail. For example, it is biblical for a believing man to marry a Christian wife…so one does not have to pray hard about that one if they do not have the “gift” of being celibate. However, discovering the specific RIGHT one to marry requires some prayer! (chuckle) On the otherhand, the Bible is very plain that we are not to murder someone. We do NOT have to pray about whether or not we should obey that command. The “thou shalt nots” are pretty plain enough on their own without having to have a direct “word” from the Lord in such matters.

    Likewise, the Bible has given us specific instructions about who we are to associate with as believers, and who we are not. Likewise, it even gives us specific instructions on where to go to church. I will conclude with the following passages from the NIV translation of the Bible. Look these up in your own Bible, and consider whether the Lord has already told you what to do about the PD and FEF situation:

    From the Holy Spirit, through Paul:

    I have written you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people—not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat. What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked man from among you.” (1 Corinthians 5:9-15)

    And…

    But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing. And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-14)

    [i.e. Don’t hang out with anyone “called” a Christian brother if they show evidence that they are not, or are compromised in some way.]

    From the Holy Spirit through the apostle, John:

    To my dear friend Gaius, whom I love in the truth. Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. It gave me great joy to have some brothers come and tell about your faithfulness to the truth and how you continue to walk in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth….

    I wrote to the church, but Diotrephes, who loves to be first, will have nothing to do with us. So if I come, I will call attention to what he is doing, gossiping maliciously about us. Not satisfied with that, he refuses to welcome the brothers. He also stops those who want to do so and puts them out of the church. Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good. Anyone who does what is good is from God. Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God. Demetrius is well spoken of by everyone—and even by the truth itself. We also speak well of him, and you know that our testimony is true. (3 John 1-5, 9-12)

    And…

    Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother. (1 John 3:7-10)

    [i.e. “Gaius, I want you to prosper, but to do so your soul must prosper. To prosper your soul, you cannot ever follow or associate with evil, but only those who are good. Therefore, change churches. Diotrephes is backslid, and I’ll rebuke him next time I show up in town. So, go over to Demetrius’ congregation. That man is on track with God.”]

    From the Holy Spirit through wise Solomon:

    He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm. (Proverbs 13:20)

    And there are many more Scriptures besides these.

    I am not knocking prayer, just putting it in its proper place by emphasizing the required obedience to God’s previously revealed and written will…the Word of God. The reason for this is that if you do not obey His plain Word, He does not really want to hear your prayers:

    If anyone turns a deaf ear to the law, even his prayers are detestable. (Proverbs 28:9)

    Blessings be to you, as you obey and walk in the light of His Word.

  4. I visited Faith Exchange a couple years ago and was immediately added to their family list.

    What bothered me about the service–and the reason I did not return–was the absence of the name of Jesus. And because I still receive the monthly newsletter, it’s clear this is a congregation that “dare not speak His name.”

    I find it creepy that a “Christian church” in 2008 in NYC makes the effort to ONLY speak Hebrew names for God — in the service and on the written page.

    And some pastor friends in Westchester, about an hour north of the city, also started getting the Faith Exchange bulletin and the pastor’s wife–without knowing I had visited there–asked me, “Do you know anything about this ‘Hebrew church’ in the city? They send us their bulletins but they never mention Jesus…”

    I know Dan has exchanged his faith…but what has he gotten in return?

  5. Dear Rich,

    I am glad to see someone addressing Dan Stratton’s various issues. I too attended FEF for many years and know the inner workings of the “church”. I saw a huge change in Dan over the years from when he first started until 9/11. The S & B membership issue is well known and he has been even told by his mentors to resign but he is fearful of the loss of power he incur. There are many improprieties financial as well as spiritual that occur within FEF. There is a great deal of abuse of power and people that I witness over the years. There is no accountability on any level. Dan has tried to become “jewish” through his purported studies of judaism and the hebrew language. He twists information to the unsuspecting people who come to hear him.

    There are so many things that I could write about but Rich, you have covered most of them. He is someone that is not to be trusted with your soul, spiritual development or finances. His goal is to “make deals” and lots of money to support his lifestyle regardless of who he steps on in the process. His business dealings are not done with integrity nor the love of God. His goal is to crush his enemies (as he perceives them to be). It is all very sad…so many people over the years have been hurt.

    A rabbi once asked if the church is called Faith Exchange, what are you exchanging your faith for???

  6. Dear Brother Rich,

    If you wrote a posting here that suggested that Dan Stratton had moral weaknesses, I would tell you that they are all too common among ALL members of the Body of Christ, and sadly, spiritual leaders have allowed the quest for personal influence and mammon too often to unduly influence their walk with God. However, you accuse Pastor Dan Stratton, my former pastor, of being an active satanist, and why? Because he belongs to Skull and Bones?

    I want you to think carefully about the implications of what you are saying. So many members of the Christian Right believe(d) that George W. Bush was placed in the White House by God. Are you saying that Pat Robertson, Kenneth Copeland, Jerry Fallwell, and countless others urged Americans to vote for an active satanist? Are you saying that the entire spiritual community of the USA was blind to an active Satanism being placed in the White House, that NO ONE on the Right had a warning, that The Reverend Jesse Jackson’s inauguration day protest was a Jeremaiad, that he spoke for God when he said that the White House was stolen? Are you a member of the Barak Obama Christian Left, as I am? After all, if Stratton is a satanist by virtue of his Skull and Bones membership, so is the entire Bush family. Are you prepared to say that to all of us?

    Skull and Bones is a fascist society. It is an elitist, anti-democratic establishment. If you argue that it should be disbanded like other excessive campus fraternities, I believe it is a sound argument that you would be making. But let’s get real — they are a pathetic bunch of half-witted children of captains of industry — Bush junior got gentleman Cs at Yale, probably out of sheer mercy — touching themselves in front of each other. They are punk-*ss wimps hiding behind their windowless walls much like members of the KKK hide behind sheets while they enact war games that get the children of honest, hard-working Americans killed. But satanist? Only in as much as the CIA and Wall Street, that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and the other bastions of worldly power are. Satanist? No. Lame. Flaccid. Effete. Unamerican. Those words apply, not yours, and Dan Stratton has weaknesses of character, like all of us, but he is no satanist — you should know. You ghost-wrote for him.

    Anne Babson

  7. Dear Anne Babson,

    Yes, I have no qualms in saying that ANY member of the Skull and Bones, including the Bush family, is a member of a satanic secret society…and thus, satanists by definition. William H. Kennedy (not to be confused with the politicians by the same name) included the S&B in his list of satanic cults within his book “Satanic Crime.” The reason for doing so is that their initiation rites are identical to a satanic black mass.

    Further, many researchers of the S&B have found reports of people who had infiltrated the building (such as a group of Yale students to rushed the building about 100 years ago to see what was inside, or the many accounts of S&B initiates taking girlfriends in there, who would later share what they saw, and others…). These people unanimously described rooms filled with human bones, and some had seen the “inner sanctum” which was a red velvet-lined room with a satanic alter at its front. So again, yes…anybody (including Stratton, the Bushes, anyone else) who is a member of this cult is a satanist by definition. The only deliverance for them is the same one available to all satanists: Namely, full repentance, renouncing their membership in the S&B, and open exposure of the secret cult’s secrets and schemes.

    Do you remember the Ephesians who formerly practiced witchcraft, but who repented, accepted Jesus, and then burned their books openly and publicly exposed and confessed their deeds (Acts 19)? Unless Stratton or one of these do the same (which none have to date), then they can never be saved.

    It is also important to note that Adolf Hitler (himself a member of the German “Brotherhood of Death”, the Thule Society….which chartered the S&B and which Stratton and the Bushes are technically “fraternity brothers” with) claimed openly to be a Christian, while all the time practicing witchcraft and murdering people in concentration camps. Thus, the teaching of “False Brethren” that exists in the New Testament has been too-long overlooked, and we have ALL been taken in by the “profession” of people who are full of devils, and not the Spirit of God. So with that said, I openly profess that Stratton had me “fooled” for a season as I wrote a book with him…but I did eventually discern him, and immediately did what any other true Christian should do: Namely, I got away from him, and later exposed him to protect others.

    Regarding your political questions: I am a Bible-based believer who bases my political ideology on Scripture, so I cannot be easily classified as either “right” or “left” because I think such labels are used to confuse the issues rather than address them. Most of those professing to be “Leftist” are extremely hostile to biblical principles of morality and holiness, so we don’t see eye-to-eye on many topics. However, some people who are considered “right-leaning” or even “extreme right” leaning people are similarly out of step with Scripture on issues of caring for the poor and limited military intervention.

    So, I just vote Bible…and in this past primary cycle (as some of my articles herein attest) I have been a supporter of Ron Paul. So, no…I am not a companion of Jesse Jackson in his beliefs or political rhetoric, and I don’t consider the 2000 election “stolen.”

    I actually voted for Bush in both 2000 and 2004. However, now that I have taken the time to research the S&B I no longer support him, nor consider him a “Christian” president in any way. With a little research it becomes obvious that Bush’s policies are designed for achieving S&B objectives, not biblical ones. And it has been noted that since his ‘04 re-election, he rarely mentions the Name of Jesus anymore, and has been supporting initiatives aimed at forming a one-world-religion–which I REFUSE to support or participate in. There is One Lord, and I serve Him, and Him only. Period.

    Regarding Copeland, Fallwell, Robertson & the such: Note that Robertson is a high-level Freemason, as his cover pose on Time Magazine in 1986 attests as he is striking a Masonic “claw” pose (and Time was founded by the S&B, by the way). Here’s the link to the TIME Magazine archives so you can see it yourself: http://www.time.com/time/covers/0,16641,19860217,00.html

    So, yes, I consider Robertson “compromised” and not a Christian (at least, needing significant deliverance through manifest repentance). That is why he was likely ASKED by the S&B to feature Stratton on the 700 Club, and why his comments during the interview reveal that Robertson knows quite a bit about the S&B (probably from personal exposure thereto).

    Jerry Fallwell knowingly accepted millions of dollars from Sun Myung Moon–who claims to be the Messiah incarnate. Note the following link: http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False%20Religions/Moonies/jerry_falwell_and_myung_moon.htm

    And Kenneth Copeland (who I have personally known also) is buddies with Stratton, Robertson, Doug Wead (who worked for both S&B Bushes), and countless members of the Council on Foreign Relations. Thus, I consider him backslidden also, and if you do an online search regarding these people/entities, you will easily see why.

    So, I agree with you that the S&B is a fascist, elitist, and anti-democratic establishment. But I also have overwhelming evidence that it is TRULY a satanic organization also, as the YouTube videos embedded herein clearly show too. So Anne, you and I are in at least partial agreement on these issues, and I trust my answer here clarifies my positions for you even further.

    Thanks for commenting and asking your questions. I am blessed you did.

    -Rich

  8. Dear Brother Rich,

    The things that you mention above are quite interesting.

    A bit of history about both Hitler’s group you mention and societies like Skull and Bones — an idea became in vogue in European intellectual circles after Goethe wrote a novel about the transition from young scholar to adult, independent-thinking man of a young man — [i]Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship[/i] (1796) — he was guided in this novel by a bunch of older men who put him through something of an initiation, a group of men who worked out of a tall, mysterious tower guiding young men of worth.

    The initial idea was both secular and entirely benign. However, Hitler and especially Goebbels were particularly taken by this idea and wholly perverted it. It became something for their model of apprenticeship for the SS elite. Likewise, certain elitists in the US saw Goethe’s [i]bildungsroman[/i] as a model for creating an elite.

    Rich, I followed your link to the [i]Time[/i] cover, and while I have many reasons to take issue with Robertson — his investments in African countries with oppressive dictatorships, his views of women, his firing of Sheila Walsh for chemically based depression, and a number of other issues — I can’t see his cover as a sure sign of Freemasonry.

    I had no idea about Fallwell and the Moonies. I only remember how hurtful his comments were to me about AIDS being God’s punishment against gays — how, then, should we understand African infants dying of it? I also remember in the 80s how vocal an opponent he was of women in the workplace, a notion based entirely on tradition and not at all on scripture.

    As for Kenneth Copeland, I am profoundly grateful to his ministry, which has been instrumental in my own growth as a Christian. I am a friend of Doug Wead’s, even though we do not see eye to eye politically.

    I still don’t think Stratton is a satanist, but your comments make me torn. I was raised in the new age in California — I had a friend whose mother made her living as a psychic, and with her, prior to coming to Christ, I learned to read palms and tarot cards. I was actually very accurate in my readings. When I had a Biblical revelation of God, however, He convicted my heart to toss out those cards and never again to read the lines of someone’s palm. My godly spiritual gifts of prophesy and discernment had been perverted against God by these practices. I therefore believe as you do that it is important for people to renounce Satan and ALL his works, even those that may seem “harmless” to them. In my own life, I take this seriously. However, I stop short of judging others. I believe the Holy Spirit convicts the hearts of those who follow Him.

    As for people working with Bonesmen, for instance, I am reminded of Daniel in Babylon. He worked in a foreign government as a voice for the Most High. I would never assume that God had NOT called someone to work as a Christian in the administration of a government that had a link to such an organization. We are each responsible for following the leading of the Holy Spirit. I know God has called me to work with ungodly people because He needed a witness there. I can’t tell you what God has spoken into the heart of another, Rich, but I won’t judge another on such a basis.

    Doing my best to be a living epistle,

    Anne

    Rich Note: Anne, I can appreciate your thoughts and do very much appreciate your taking the time to comment on these issues. I am slow to respond because of my current schedule, but I will take a moment to give you a quick response here.

    Take a look at 1 Corinthians 10. You will find that Paul told the Corinthians “point blank” that they could NOT be partakers of the Lord’s table and the table of demons also. Thus, there is a significant disconnect between your analogy of Daniel’s job working for the Babylonian government and Stratton’s membership in a satanic cult. I know that the USA government, for example, is full of idolatry and corruption–yet a Christian can be called to work in the middle thereof as a light and agent of truth. However, Paul clearly said that one cannot mix idolatrous worship (which is actually occultic) and biblical Christianity.

    Paul also made it very plain in 2 Timothy 2:19, “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” In Scripture after Scripture, you will find the tenants of the first of the Ten Commandments represented in the New Testament, namely, “Thou shalt have no other gods before [or besides] Me.” A detailed study of both these Scriptures AND a comparison with the nature and history of the Skull and Bones will cause anyone with an open mind to conclude that membership in such a cult is fully precluded from Christianity, and is evidence that Stratton’s heart was NEVER repentant.

    Regarding your comments that you “will not judge” Stratton or others, let me also direct you to the following admonition from Jesus Himself in John 7:24, “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.” In other words, the New Testament NEVER tells believers to NEVER judge others categorically (and yes, I know there are a few passages that have been misconstrued to indicate that, but an in-context analysis thereof will prove otherwise)…but rather to judge according to biblical precepts and reasonable research. In fact, the Bible clearly states in several places among the Epistles “…I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat” (1 Cor. 5:11, which is only one example). So how can we disassociate from such people if we do not first inspect their “fruit” and judge accordingly?

    To refuse to judge others according to their obvious fruit and to refuse to “judge righteously” as God has commanded, is to set oneself up for deception and error…and is quite unbiblical to say the least. One might as well tell the Anti-Christ “sign me up for your mark!” if one is not going to be discerning and judge obvious evidence in the light of Scripture:

    “For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible.” (Matthew 24:24, and see also Mark 13:22). In other words, these “skilled deceivers” are hard to detect (to the point that it tests the discernment of even the elect) and we need to follow biblical precepts and methodology for discerning their “fruit” and treating them accordingly.

    Regarding Copeland: I was a partner for 17 years and was richly blessed by that man and his ministry. However, I have known him “close up and in person” and have considerable amounts of “insider’s” information regarding him and KCM. Thus, my earlier mentioned concerns are not without basis nor serious forethought. However, I will refrain from elaborating further here, but may do so elsewhere later.

    Regarding Doug Wead: I do not know him personally, but again, I can measure and compare “fruit” based on his own admissions and publicly-known information. Thus, his association with those who have no problem being actively involved in the satanic show’s Wead’s character and actual spiritual allegiance. Remember that Paul said in one quote above, “let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” Wead seems comfortable hanging with these folks–and even working for them–so I do not consider him an active believer who should be associated with, and I am VERY concerned about his future in eternity (i.e. Heaven or Hell).

    Lastly, where Robertson on Time’s cover is concerned: The Masonic “claw” salute is a clear indication to Freemasons that Robertson is a Mason…so why should it not be to us also? 2+2 still equals 4, and only a little research on these topics will help anyone to clearly discern truth in this and the other above matters. I recommend the website created by Ex-Mason’s for Jesus (www.emfj.org) as a starting point. These guys know what they are talking about.

    Thanks Anne again for your commentary and questions. I hope I had at least some success in accurately sharing my perspective on these issues to you and others who may read this blog.

    -Rich

  9. I know Dan Stratton and see no problem with his evangelical appreciation of the Lord. Let it be guys, let it be. We can find Christ through many paths in this world as long as it is Christ we search for and do find. Funny thing when we do find Him it is quite obvious no?. As far as Skull and Bones I don’t remember any Satanic experiences as a Yalie unless you include all nighters, a few difficult tests or a couple wild parties. As for secret societies what about Wolf’s Head or Elihu or the others? I woud put my faith in Christ first as He has already defeated death and Satan. Besides we are all accountable to Christ in the end.

    • Serge,

      You just told me three things about yourself:

      (1) You are not born again, and thus, are not truly a Christian.
      (2) You have no understanding of the Scriptures (which would be expected, since you are obviously not born again).
      (3) Dan Stratton has been merely a “tool” used to reveal the above to facts about you.

      To understand the theological basis for the above points, I recommend you read my article How God Uses Heretics. Therein, you will discover WHY you feel the way you do about the things you do.

      And if you are a bonehead yourself (i.e. a member of the Skull and Bones; the modified term for which I just used purposely), then you are certainly a blatant liar for saying that you “do not remember any satanic experiences” while at Yale (either that, or you are suffering from some memory lapse disorder). If you were not a bonehead, then I would recommend that you study up on the topic, as you are obviously misinformed about them. I suggest beginning with this chapter excerpt from William H. Kennedy’s book, Satanic Crime, and then proceeding to this article about Dan Stratton on CuttingEdge.org. There are plenty of YouTube documentaries that you can review as well.

      I truly hope you come to grips with your perilous sinful condition, and repent, turn to God in a genuine faith, and prove that repentance by good deeds (Acts 26:20, NIV). Once you are born again, you will certainly see all things within a different light, by God’s Own grace:

      John 8:42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. 43 Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. 46 Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? 47 He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.” (NKJV)

      Once you get saved, then the Bible will make sense to you and you will begin to realize how dangerous the doctrine of Dan Stratton truly is.

      Regardless, I exhort you to review those recommended resources before attempting to post any further comment here. I will ignore any posts that you might make if they do not show obvious signs that you have studied that material first.

      Always in Jesus,

      -Rich
