Video: The intriguing Pastor Arnold Murray

If you spend anytime flipping through channels late at night, you undoubtedly have come across Pastor Arnold Murray and his show Shepherd’s Chapel.

The guy has been on TV since 1985, and always provides some great moments. Here’s one of my favorite clips of him pulling a gun on someone in his audience:

YouTube user, Everythingisterrible, has put together this great compilation of Pastor Murray doing what he does best:

And you thought scientists like Darwin, Sagan, Gould, Coyne, and Dawkins were great scientists. They’re all liars!

Good stuff.

    This little gem got linked to my facebook page with the caption:

    "I've seen this halfwit on TV once or twice. And in case you may think this guy is a 'fringe element', he is one of the longest running, most successful TV preachers out there. That means that people actually watch him and presumably believe him. And now I'm sad."

    • Dean

      His beginning students know more about scripture then people who spent their life in church. You have a problem with the ones who act in ignorance. Watch Pastor Murray rip apart Easter. He is as brutal as a Slayer concert.

  • Brian

    This man's ministry is actually the most straight-forward, down-to-earth, and actually educational hour of religious programming on the air.
    Of all the shows, and I mean that in the theatrical sense, on Christian television, this is the only one I could watch, and even recommend. I'm not a Christian, by the way, and for what's it's worth.
    In a world of religious, anti-religious, and non-religious nuts running around, I'm glad to see he uses his 2nd Amendment rights to defend his other rights, not the least of which is to not to be harmed by somebody else.
    Would it be "better" if he had a large security staff, or started scurying and bawling for help ( I admit THAT may be funny to see a guy go from preaching fearless faith to wetting his pants in fear ) or worse, being physically hurt by some maniac?

  • mighein

    Interesting take on that, Brian. I heard the guy say "blasphemous" and then "keep your hands off me" but I didn't see the preacher in danger. Apparently, there were security staff there. Murray look more angry than scared.

    And when you say "educational", I'm curious in what regard? I'm not trying to be difficult or flame you so don't get too bent. It's clear that science isn't his forte but is he educational in terms of bible study? Just a bit confused.

  • Truth_is_God

    NOBODY will understand God's Word that doesn't have a feeling that something is missing no matter what they do or have. If someone feels that they have everything, then why would they look for fulfillment with God or another "spiritual" god? The sad part is EVERYONE at some point in their life feels lost, helpless and unfulfilled. Not everyone recognizes it for what it is or won't admit to it. Why do we feel unfulfilled you ask? Because God is knocking. God’s will is for everyone to be saved, that NO man should parish. It’s sad that there are people that won't accept the truth before they pass in this life.

    There are no gods. No devils. No angels. No heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.

    • dennis Thomas

      "hardens hearts "–I find it interesting that you would use a scripture to try and prove they aren't legit :)

      God does have a sense of humor but sadly only some of us get the joke.

    I may be the oddball here – I think Murray is a fruit loop and heretic as far as doctrine is concerned but if its my show, my time, etc – nobody's going to come in and take over.

    pastor murray does not ask you to believe him he ask you to study for yourself. i believe he is a man of god. i can't make you belive in god. what do i have to loose if i believe. what do you loose if you don't and god is real. which i have no doubt he does.but the choice is yours. i study with pastor murray but i am not blinded by his faults. we all have the them. he is in the flesh just like we all are. no ones perfect.

  • Lois Eunice

    Here we go again people, another atheist exhausting his energy denying a God he doesn't believe in.
    Madelyn Murray O'Hare (atheist) is dead, she stole her organization's money before being killed & her own son accepted Jesus as his personal Savior. As for Brother Richard, you also can't spell very well.

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/BrotherRichard BrotherRichard

      Lois, first the post was meant to be humorous. As far as television preachers go, Pastor Murray isn't that bad. In fact, I enjoy watching him sometimes. This doesn't mean I think he's right, but I think he is a genuine person. I was joking about some of the ridiculous things he has said.

      You need a history lesson on the Madeline Murray O'Hare. She did not rob her organization, but was kidnapped by the person who murdered her. This man forced her to take the money under threat of death. When the man was found, he had money and other things stolen on him. Regardless of that, it has nothing to do with truth. she does not present my thoughts, my views, or anything about me. I'm sure you would say the same thing when a crazy Christian does something. Because I'm sure they do not represent you.if you want to judge me by every wrong done by an atheist, then I can judge you by every wrong done by a theist (but I wouldn't do that).

      Also, it doesn't matter that one of her sons became a Christian. If it did, it wouldn't matter when the Christian's child becomes an atheist. These are not arguments for truth.

      Thanks also for pointing out the misspellings. At first I thought you were commenting on words in the original post. But I see you were talking about errors in one of my comments. Comments are usually made quickly, and therefore subject to misspelling. In your other comment, you implied that the misspelling words. Makes me like Jim Jones, David Koresh, and Charles Manson. This is how hilarious! I had no idea they were able to deceive their followers with bad spelling. The difference between me and those men, is they proclaimed they were gods. I assure you, my regular readers will quickly reject me if I make any claims of deity.

      I have no problem with few commenting on my blog. However, I expect you to be respectful to the other commentators, and not resort to name-calling. I'm sure you think we all are hell bound us why we are here on earth, you will treat us with humanity and decency. I am sure this is what Jesus would have done.

  • Lois Eunice

    Hey everybody—the word "since" is supposed to be sense and contadictions is CONTRAdictions.
    Be careful people, this is how Jim Jones, David Koresh, Charles Manson, etc. got started. We can see right through you. Go bury your head in the sand.

  • Sandy

    I enjoy Pastor Murray’s teaching and for the first time, the Bible makes sense.

  • Patty Mortensen

    To All, Pastor Murray is so wonderful. I do not have words for how much he has taught me. He knows the Bible like no one else. Other Pastors and Priests are very jealous of him. People sho slander his words and his teachings are not Christians, he will live forever in heaven with God! I know, I watch him all the time. I thank God for him and any wise person who listens to him would know how knowing he is. His love for God and his love for all persons who want to really know what God is saying in the Bible.
    He has been teaching for over fifty years and know many languages. Has the Bible memorized.
    Truly a man of God, there is noone like him, I have searched all my life for someone who could tell me what the Bible is all about. God blesses Pastor Murray and I love this man. I love God. I believe in the trinity. World without end. Bless you who do belive in the LORD your God. Truly, Patty Mortensen

    pastor Murray… He has changed my whole way of thinking… I have been been searching all my adult life for the right ministry for me, and FINALLY, i found it, with Shepherds Chapel. I have opened my mind and my heart so much since studying with pastor murray. He is a God Sent!!! I thank god everyday for Pastor murray!! I just 7 months ago believed in false believes because of what Man has taught me all my life… well God Sent Pastor Murray to me and Everything has changed!! Thank God I know the truth now! I was teaching others my own beliefs for so long, even my own children..

  • tammy murphy

    . No church I have ever been to taught me anything all my life , And now I know more than some (so-called) ministers of God! You who don't believe and are foolish … you will one day bow down to your knees and see that it is true… The day Jesus Christ comes back… Its too bad that it might just be too late for you… I mean come on, you people that claim to be so smart … but you are so ignorant In Gods word! Its obvous the truth is right there. I dont understand why People are so blind!!!! You pick up a romance novel or a sci-fi book and read plenty of those… but you won't pick up the Bible and read it!!! The Bible will give you wisdom and understanding , more than you can even imagine if you just try it… Read it … ask for understanding… it will be given to you! I love you Pastor Murray!!!!!! Thank you so much for teaching me God's word , chapter by chapter and verse by verse!!!!! and Thank you Father for sending Him to me to help me open my mind and my heart to "The Truth"!!!! God Bless!!!!

    • David Severson

      Amen Tammy-you are not alone. Any one who does not believe in God is a fool!!! God states that himself.

    • Hate Liars

      If only he could teach you not to sleep and live with another man while still married. If only he had taught you not to take on yet another man in your bed while still married, but living with another man. If this is what the pastor teaches you Tammy, he is as phony as you are.

  • scott

    those halfwits who call the Shepherds Chapel a cult fail to recognize that the term cult can be applied to any organization.
    the sacred order of water buffalos could be considered a cult for goodness sakes.

    in response to those who claim he pulled a gun on someone…..first off…..the criminal busted into a private taping of the show and started walking very quickly and agressively towards the Pastor.
    I dont know about you but when someone breaks through my door and starts heading right for me or my family im going to use whatever is at my disposal to take care of the situation.
    nutcases like the one that fought his way into the Shepherds Chapel are plentiful these days.

    PM tells people to read and think for themselves…..which is something I dont believe Ive ever heard another Protestant preacher or catholic priest claim…..think about it.

  • Ardis

    Many churches, incl. the Catholic church with its un-biblical worship of Mary and the Saints, have much to fear from the clear and biblical interpretation of the Bible by Pastor Murray. He and his son know the Bible backwards and forwards, by heart, and shed much light where we have the most difficulties.

    So many "teachers" use and paraphrase the Bible for their personal gain, but Pastors Murray simply help us understand, taking us through the Bible verse by verse.

    I owe them much of my understanding, and-since I can easily read the ancient Greek-verify all the time that their explanations are faithful to the biblical text.

    From just a few years after Jesus' crucifiction, false teachers were appearing, as is clear from the New Testament. It's up to us to discern who are the false teachers, and Pastors Murray are not.

    • Thomas OKeefe

      I am a Roman Catholic and have 17 years of Catholic schooling. I attend church regularly. Not once have I or any other Catholic I know from the Pope down have ever worshiped the Blessed Mother or any of the Saints. I am a great fan of Pastor Murray and his son, Dennis (though I find the latter to be a bit monotone at times, he sure knows his stuff). The point is, I have not found anything Pastor Murray says to contradict the teachings of the Catholic Church. The good Dr Murray is a wonderful man I have had the pleasure of meeting on two occasions and I watch his program at least as often as I attend my own church. Can you tell me, where do you get the idea that Catholics worship Mary or the Saints?

  • Diane

    and then Brother Richard, you might learn how to correctly spell "shepherd" not shepard, if you are really a writer. I love Pastor Murray. He has taught me how to study the Bible for myself and it finally makes sense to me. I have studied with him for 13 years now and keep on learning. He doesn't tell us what to believe but teaches us HOW TO LEARN! TRY IT, you just might like it!

  • Rj4

    Peace be Unto you Richard are you telling me that you are really without faith? I say unto you who can read this pastor murray whom pray by bowing his head and not entering a closet to pray knows some words of hebrew which can be good for translations but if he was born from The Father would you have went to war with a country that was no threat to the U.S. and i am sure he did not go there to love them , for the Anointed Jesus taught and showed us even unto death of the flesh to love thy enemy ,

  • Rj4

    Peace
    since He prayed for them and the demons He cast out Jesus did not kill them and they had no idea He was here , if you come from The Father of Christ Jesus then your spirit will not lead you astray and richard a closet is what Jesus tell you to Pray in , do you know this prayer "Our Father which art in Heaven" you do know this right and jesus tell you to enter into this. anorld murray believes in beating the childern or almost any if he could get away with that and Jesus tell us do not harm the childern Spare the rod spoil the Child , as in don't you want to be spoiled by your Heavenly Father as a reward for doing good? part two

  • Rj4

    Peace be unto you Now anorld want to watch the spirit be cast into the fire as a reward when Chist Jesus feel sorrow for those lost this arnold one finds joy in this. This is what he fine and so do the evil ones want to watch too. Truly I say to you I hope and pray you all find the faith with truth

    Pastor Arnold Murray is freakin' awesome ! I get up most every most every weekday morning at 5:30 to watch him . Keep in mind, this is coming from a hardcore , former hard partying , crazed Detroit Rock City Roller who came across this show while channel surfing . I thank God for sending out such a straight- up, kick- ass teacher who knows so much about the Bible ! I have had so many questions about the God and the Bible all my life (43) and he has answered and documented all these questions . If you really want to know what's up , or in other words-the TRUTH -then check it out . It's no frills , no BS very educational . He knows his stuff !!!!!

  • Roy

    The Bible is true, because it says so right there in the Bible. What better proof could you want?

  • johnny

    Roy,
    You are right mostly, we are to believe it because it says so. That is what faith means.
    However, Pastor Murray takes everything concerning the Bible to a higher level. In addition to his detailed teaching, he has a collection of DVD's he sells, on which he uses regular world history to prove things in the Bible. The documentaries are low quality home made films. For me, this proves how authentic they are. No fancy stuff- just educational information that really anyone else could un cover.
    I have attended church all of my life, but only listened to Mr. Murray for 4 years or so. I've learned much more in the last 4 then I did in the first 36.

    Pastor Murray, reads directly from the BIBLE verse by verse. He tells you what words mean in Hebrew and Greek he helps me understand the WORD. He encouraging his followers to study the BIBLE. There is no one that has ever taught me the meaning of the WORD, as he does. I went to church my whole life and never learned as much as I have from him within this last year I have been watching him.
    People live in the USA for freedom, you can believe as you will. We as individuals are responsible for our own beliefs or non beliefs. I am glad I live in the USA so I can worship as I please.

Before, i had to read a verse over and over again Now, with his clear exclamations of the verses, i find that i am learning so much more. Thanks Pastor Murray. Now, my wish is that you will be on during the day in my area (12:00a.m. to 5:00a.m.) on channel 57 is when the program is on.

    .I have heard many sermons preaching faith over understanding, that message never cut it for me. Through Pastor Murrays Bible study I have found understanding.
    As for the video, this only strengthens my support of the Pastor. I, like him, will not wait or depend on others to defend myself as long as I am capable of doing it myself.

    I have to put this show on air 4hrs a night 4 nights a week. I'm not a Christian, and the more I hear this show, the more ridiculous I find this religion. Completely ridiculous. The idea that the bible is a letter written by God & given to people? Why? Why would God need a book — couldn't God just burn it into people's minds?
    Pastor Murray & his son are constantly warning of the anti-Christ, but they are blissfully ignorant that the Church is actually the anti-Christ, responsible for German zealotry & Nazi philosophy, endless Crusades, the destruction & domination of native peoples across the planet, and slavery. Yes, Christians practiced slavery.
    So … if there really IS a hell, I can tell you who'd be going there. (See last paragraph.)

    • rekzkarz

      I really like what Carlin said about Christianity, namely that "You're supposed to believe that this invisible being loves you, wants you to do what is good, and if you don't — you'll burn in the painful purgatory hell forever. But he loves you. And we, the Church of his followers, need you to send us money."
      Just b/c a bunch of monks wrote & rewrote the Bible, it is just a book. These are moral tales, not literal tales. People are supposed to learn and use their brains to discover morals in the stories, not interpret them as literal. A talking serpent is a metaphor, just as eating the apple from the tree of knowledge.
      The fact that the BIble is a metaphor is perhaps the biggest distinction between Jews & Christians — Jews (most of them, except the ridiculous literalist militant extremists (Jews have them too)) are taught that this is a metaphor, and that 'God' per se is completely unknowable and unnameable. Calling it Jesus, or God, or Yehovah or whatever — is almost like 'idol worship' & Breaks one of the 10 Commandments.

    Most Christians don't know their history: that Jesus' is a romanization of a Rabbi's name, Joshua (in Hebrew Yehoshua). Most don't know he was a Rabbi, like a Jewish priest. Many people believe he was a Jewish leader who wanted to practice the 10 Commandments among all people. And so few Christians realize that all of the first Christians were Jews (practicing Judaism, not the strange hybrid that is Christianity) and it was only Paul of Tarsus, a disciple that never met Jesus & was a former Roman leader, that decided to convert non-Jews and that they didn't need to know anything about the religion that Jesus loved so dearly. Paul was basically very very ambitious, and very very confused.

    If you don't like Pastor Murray, then don't listen to him. If you don't believe in God , then you should keep your mouths shut, and go to HELL!!!!!!!!!!!! I listen to his preaching every day . He teaches simplistically , and he teaches directly from the bible. If you don't believe God's word , it's your choice . I could care less about un-believers. I won't have to put up with them in the here-after. A man who says their is No God is a FOOL! He will go back to the dust and that will be it, forever. Life is pointless for them.

    Pastor Murray is a veteran of two wars.Not only is he one of GODS elect he's also a veteran,and defender of GODS word.For some fool to step into is church and call him a blasphemer enraged him,simply because he loves our father so much and has devoted his life to bringing the truth to those that will listen.I admire that in him just because we are christians does not mean we are to be pushed around.

    First of all there is no audience at the Shepherd's Chapel. That video that is taken out of context was obviously an intruder who was threatening in some way and pasture Murray was probably trying to scare them so they would leave the building. Common sense would tell you that if you watched it as I have. Pasture Murray teaches at a desk and does not have an in house audience unless his staff is listening at the time of taping. He is a wonderful teacher who can back up anything and everything he teaches. If he gives an opinion it is rare and he will be very clear to say that it is an opinion. He tells all to check out himself and any other person who teaches God's word with the bible, and in 20 years of watching him I have never heard him make a racist remark.

    How many people own guns? I dont but I think in the the boonies everyone should. When you teach the word you will have enemies. Some very dangerous some not. Usually it's the zealots that like to pick a fight. Defending yourself has never been a crime.I love you pastor Murray. Thank you for doing your duty. Father said He would send Shepherds.

    I have been watching Pastor Arnold Murray since the 80's – and today is March 31, 2012. He is the best preacher in the world. I study with him 24/7 and still can not get enough. Any one who says anything bad about him is just eat up with the devil. Pastor Murray is a God sent blessing for man-kind. Thank you God for the gentle teachings of my hero.

    OF course he reads verse by verse and chapter by chapter: by the way is there any other way to read anything other than word for word. HUM, the last time I heard anything read it is usually read as word by word, or something is said it is said word by word, and no one today has developed a means through technology or any other way to read word skip a word then skip two words then go backwards and skip two or three words. I speak of along the lines of logic here and with reason and common sense. Anything that is read that is meant to be heard and understood will be read in an orderly fashion. The reason Arnold says that he reads the Bible verse by verse and chapter by chapter is that he figures everybody who listens to him is too dumb to realize that he is pulling on their leg. And if he is referring to other preachers that go to a chapter and read a few verses and then goes to another chapter to read a few verses there then he thinks they are not reading it the same way he does. Think about it my friends is he testing our intelligence when he claims that he is the only one that reads chapter by chapter and verse by verse because I have watched him daily for almost a year to study what he is doing and I have caught him going from one chapter to read verses and in the same 30 minutes jump to another chapter to read from there. He also along with many, many other preaches will read from different chapters and even books of the Bible when they are trying to get across their own opinions of what they think scripture means. Besides why do we need preachers to read and define scriptures when The Holy Ghost is the one who is very willing and available to teach us what Jesus was saying and all pertaining to truth, and will show us things to come. I think it is high time we put away the potential of being gullible therefore also possibly becoming deceived by these last days preachers. How about we verify and test the spirits of these preachers. This is not a time of playing church or guessing or even assuming because someone reads from the Bible has every persons benefit in mind. Why even satan knows what the Bible says and if he knows then would it stand to reason that the fallen angels also knows the words in the Bible. It is not about reading the words in the Bible anyway it is whether or not what one reads if they understand what they are reading or not. I could write a book on all the things that Arnold Murray has taught that is absolutely not scriptural and with proof that he is totally off. I have never seen anyone so far from the truth as much as Arnold Murray and I have researched and heard alot of preachers in the last 10 years. Perhaps people will wake up real soon that believe Arnold Murray and try to find the truth before it is too late and he drags them along with him to who knows where. I am not here to bash Arnold Murray only to help people to become aware of his false teachings so they won't have to suffer the consequences of believing those false teachings.
    I am glad to hear those who are posting here that don't believe Arnold Murray way to go and keep up the good work of sharing your disbelief in him. As far as threatening a man in his congregation. If I was there and witnessed that I would get up and asked people sitting there is this what they want to follow, and unstable, scared, ready to bang the first one who disagrees with him, a mere man who thinks that he owns the church to the point he commands others to do his bidding. And that while he is doing the Chapel Hour no one is to make a noise while he is talking. HUm hum, I would then say those who had just seen the wolf in sheep's clothing revealed walk with me out the door and never come back to his church and from that point on convince others to beware of a false teacher in the home town of that church. However, since I do know he is a false teacher and he still has people to show up Sunday mornings and still follow him that I may have had to walk out of the doors on my own. But what I was getting ready to say was since I do know he is a false teacher I am warning people about what he is teaching how he is using the false teaching to get others into his web of deceit. Anyway that is enough for now I think you all here got an idea of what I am saying so decide for yourselves the signs and symptoms of last day deceivers

    • Tina

      Wow Tina It looks like no one has anything to say so it must mean either no one is reading this or they do not want to say anymore than what you said because dear you said alot here. Although I do have to say what you said is right. I agree with you 100 percent. Well that is kind of funny because it is me also writing a reply. No wonder I agree with you. Maybe people like controversy dear, maybe people like the fears of not knowing the truth and confronting them or perhaps they are too busy to get on the internet these high tech computer world of today. Oh well, I think you just hang in there and i am positive someone will happen across this reply to your post and begin to wonder what is up.

        Thank you for your concerns and I am very aware of what is in the Bible. I don't understand one thing when someone writes something that is very important why do people think that it can be expressed with one or two chat line sentences? It is a mystery that people are in so much of a hurry they don't have time enough to read a decent explanation. I am sure that when you were given a note from a secret admirer or an exciting letter that came in the mail may have been much longer. But it seems to be challenging to you to see such in depth explanation. Perhaps you can tell whoever was there with you who was forcing you to read what I have written to not be so pushy. HUh. LOL. Naw. I was being funny. It is not personal dear, it is not that I intended to write a book to explain something I feel is real important, I had to follow my heart on what to write. I am sure you can appreciate that. I do hope you got something from it and it is not important that I know so I don't seek an answer. Who knows maybe God is checking to see if you feel you are worth it to yourself to check it out and be serious about it and not just summed up in a tiny sentence or paragraph. I am not your judge dear so I have to say if you disagree with what was said or how it was said then take it up with the one I follow wholeheartedly, The Most High GOD. Thank you for at least posting a reply.
        God bless and sincerest regards,

      • friend

        Thank you very much. I don't get to share with anyone what I have found out or learned about things of this nature. I feel it is extremely important that people become much more attentive to the care of their soul than to just fling their souls life into just anyone's hands without researching and praying that God will guide them to the right places. I am not sure why no one wanted to reply to my post until you did but I do hope that whoever reads it will consider what I have said and weigh it out. I appreciate you for letting me know how you feel. God Bless and again thank you sweetie.

    Pastor Arnold Murry, I never seen so much phoney beloney stuff. You make up. Satan had sex with eve and had a son Cain? Are you kidding me? God didn't make eve into prostitute. Eve was Adam wife and they had two sons without Satan. True Christians knows? Christmas is a pagan day. You're right about easter. I trace sons and their off spring of Noah in the KJB and their was no others? It's amazing…You're only one. Who makes up this stuff up? None of the Rabbis would agree with, to or teach your ways. Herbrews 4.8 means, Jesus keeped the Sabbath with his followers. Not do way with the Sabbath. Also, Jesus was the lamb sacrifice. Not the Sabbath sacrifice. Colossian 2:16 Let no man Judge you. That's all. Everybody, who wants to keep Sabbath, they can. It's free will. Because Jesus and his discisples did. Even when Jesus left to heaven by reading the Bible. Even Paul did, to. Mathew 5:19 In my opinion? I think? You need go back school or something and learn about the Bible. Because, I tell your followers? Make sure, the word of God matches with Pastor Murry. Because your words is twisted and untrue.

  • Shari

    I LOVE Pastor Murray I've been watching him for year. After having brain surgery I have trouble with memory and learning. He is very helpful in understanding and explaining the Bible so that I enjoy it and don't get lost. I love that he can translate the Bible. It gives me confidence that I'm learning the 'real truth'. I don't believe in violence or guns. It does bother me that he pulled out a 9mm. But I do know that he has been threatened by many and I suppose that can cause anyone to react in ways they wish they hadn't. Let's let God judge this one.

    God is awesome , and I love Shepherd's Chapel !!! I LOVE learning from Pastor Arnold Murray as well as his son Dennis about God's word . Through their show , God has answered so many of my questions – and answered them so well , that things have really started changing in my life . Some people that give them a hard time are most likely jealous and or just don't get the whole God thing . It's His will . so whatcha gonna do ? I'm grateful to have been pulled back into the flock . Thank you Father ! Thank you Yeshua ! Thank you Holy Spirit !!!

  • gaylee

    i agree with you. its true that paster murry tells you to check your bible even when he speaks his beliefs. he can be hardcore, but you have to be that way sometimes to get the truth across. i personally love the way he teaches and i also believe that God gave him this gift and pastor murry is using it to his full advantage…i didn't even believe in christ until i started listening to pastor murry. God bless him and all that are with him!!

    If only he could teach you not to sleep and live with another man while still married. If only he had taught you not to take on yet another man in your bed while still married, but living with another man. If this is what the pastor teaches you Tammy, he is as phony as you are.

    I am a Roman Catholic and have 17 years of Catholic schooling. I attend church regularly. Not once have I or any other Catholic I know from the Pope down have ever worshiped the Blessed Mother or any of the Saints. I am a great fan of Pastor Murray and his son, Dennis (though I find the latter to be a bit monotone at times, he sure knows his stuff). The point is, I have not found anything Pastor Murray says to contradict the teachings of the Catholic Church. The good Dr Murray is a wonderful man I have had the pleasure of meeting on two occasions and I watch his program at least as often as I attend my own church. Can you tell me, where do you get the idea that Catholics worship Mary or the Saints?

    So, someone needs to be convinced that they need salvation? What an odd religion. Do you think people intentionally don't accept the truth? If someone tries to to understand something and ends up somewhere different then you did, I don't think thatthey should get tortured for enternity as a result. This is the punishment for attempting to understand the universe. It's seems like you want them to not think an just accept.

    "hardens hearts "–I find it interesting that you would use a scripture to try and prove they aren't legit :)

    God does have a sense of humor but sadly only some of us get the joke.

  • amf

    The sadness you feel comes from your lack of knowledge of biblical scripture. It is people like you who will watch something briefly, and then make a judgement. You go to a church who teaches false doctrine and are foolish enough to believe their teachings and not the word of God. If i were you, I would also be a sad person. I pray you find knowledge.

    Truth, you are waisting your time on this site as I am. It is a site for the ignorant. People who believe in science over the word of God. One thing that I love about scientist is that they cannot prove any of their accusations concerning creation. Keep the faith and never listen to these idiots. These people here lead a sad and miserable life, and they wonder why.
