John Carter Answers Tough Questions

 
 
Dear Brother and Sister in Christ,
 
Greetings in the mighty name of JESUS.  I am writing to invite you to join me in the CUBA CAMPAIGN FOR CHRIST, commencing next month. There will be, God willing, 21 campaigns across this Communist nation.
 
The Carter Report is sponsoring these meetings, which means that by His grace we will be paying the bills. We estimate that tens of thousands of dollars will be needed to light this Gospel fire.
 
We are going to Cuba because:
1. There is now a small window of opportunity.
2. Cuba desperately needs the TRUE GOSPEL in contrast to the counterfeit.
3. Windows that quickly open can quickly close.
4. God’s people in Cuba say, “Please come.”
5. Cuba needs the truth about the Occult that deceives millions.
6. The Cuban people are hungry for God.
7. We are our “brother’s keeper,” and have a responsibility.
 
This is an opportunity to do something great for Christ and His people. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. This is history in the making, and you will be part of it. Please join me in the CUBA CAMPAIGN FOR CHRIST.
 
May God open to you the windows of Heaven and pour out so many blessings that you will not have room enough to receive them.
 
Believing that God is about to do great things,
With a thousand thanks,
 
John Carter
The Carter Report
 
P.S. Remember the words carved over the doorway of a little church in Calcutta: “ATTEMPT GREAT THINGS FOR GOD, EXPECT GREAT THINGS FROM GOD.”
 
P.P.S. To reach as many souls as possible for Christ, we are now broadcasting on CROSSTV, VIMEO, YOUTUBE, ROKU,* APPLE TV,* AMAZON FIRE TV,* and six times weekly on 3ABN. This costs hundreds of thousands of dollars per year and your support makes all this possible. Words are inadequate to say, “thank you,” enough.

CUBAN COUNTDOWN!
 
We are now working with the leaders and pastors of the Cuban churches.  The meetings are planned to commence next month (September 2016) in 21 different locations.  We have moved ahead in faith and booked plane fares and hotel accommodations.  We are on the final countdown. Pastor Carter is preparing his lectures that will present evidences for God and the Bible, as well as the powerful truths of the Three Angels’ Messages.
 
 
UKRAINE
 
Ukraine is a tragic country that has been torn apart by wars, political corruption
and economic chaos. Many of our new church members worship under dreadful conditions. In Kiev, one congregation meets in a decrepit hall that is bereft of heating and often lighting.
In the midst of a sullen Ukrainian winter, this means temperatures of minus 14 and an atmosphere of a twilight gloom. The Carter Report team returns to Kiev with a passion to change things for the better, to uplift the downcast, to comfort the sorrowing, to lift up the fallen, and to preach abroad the unsearchable riches of Christ.
 
SCANDALS IN THE ROMAN CATHOLIC AND SOME PROTESTANT CHURCHES ARE A WAKE-UP CALL TO TRUST ONLY IN CHRIST for Salvation
 
 
John Carter answers your TOUGH QUESTIONS about SEX, MONEY, PREACHERS, THE GOSPEL, and EVANGELISM
 
Q: Should not preachers be honest and true?
A: Absolutely. Those who teach the Gospel ought to be holy men and women of God. Many are, and we should not condemn the many because of the sins of the few.
 
Q: What about the scandals in the church? Pedophiles, sex perverts, adulterers, liars, cheats, thieves, and con artists?
A: Tragically the Church has too often silently condoned unrighteous and wicked acts. But Judgment is coming. The Vatican has a long history of pedophiles who preyed upon the innocent. Protestant churches to a lesser degree have also been guilty. Pedophiles deserve to be in prison, along with other criminals, including those who rob people of their hard earned savings.
 
Q: What is your assessment of the current religious situation?
A: Some of the very best people I have met anywhere are church leaders. Some religious organizations are, however, often plagued by slick con artists who prey on gullible people. Some TV evangelists rob the flock while using the name of Jesus as a sales technique. The “Jesus Business,” as some call it, is big business here in the United States.
 
Q: Are there some religious leaders who have become wealthy through dishonest means?
A: I don’t know if the means they use are legally dishonest but I do know that profiting financially by using Jesus is wrong and unethical. A minister or leader of a ministry has the right to a living wage. It should be enough to live comfortably. But to become personally wealthy through the Gospel of Christ is to betray Jesus as Judas did for 30 pieces of silver. I know that some will laugh and scoff, but that is how I see it. The Prosperity Gospel is an ungodly sham. It is a disgrace.
 
Q: What about the sex scandals we sometimes hear about among TV preachers?
A: There is an old saying my mother taught me: “The mills of God grind slowly, but they grind exceeding small.” Mum also said, “It will all come out in the wash.” You can’t hide a bad smell forever. A rotting carcass will make its presence known sooner than later. Also remember that unbelievers in the media delight in pointing out the sins of Christians while often guilty of greater violations of God’s Law.
 
Q: What moral standards should I expect of a TV evangelist, pastor, or church leader?
A: • Integrity — This old-fashioned value is needed more than ever.
• Honesty — People are as good as their word.
• Truthfulness — A liar will be shut out of the Kingdom. See Rev. 22:15
• Purity — Fornicating pastors should be fired, not just transferred.
• Accountability — No church leader is above the Law.  Church business should be transparent.
• Faithfulness — Religious leaders should be faithful to the Gospel and
   the saving of souls, not lording it over the congregation.
• Graciousness — We are called to administer grace and help the hurting.
 
Q: Some TV evangelists talk in tongues and make a great show of piety. How can I avoid deception?
A: Use your common sense. A grown man or woman uttering silly syllables is deceived and deceiving. Even the devil can look pious. The big give away is when the TV evangelist makes promises he can’t keep (like healing you), and asks you to send him a big offering as a condition for receiving the blessing.  Beware of over religious, fast-talking, smooth as butter, crying, charismatic con artists. Be wise to these frauds and tricksters.
 
Q: How can I tell the difference between the phony and the genuine?
A: Be spiritually discerning and ask God for wisdom. Jesus said, “By their fruits you will know them.”  Don’t be naive. Keep your wits about you. The world is full of smiling, charismatic, religious con artists. Look below the surface and read your Bible every day. Support the genuine, boycott the bogus.
 

FRED JORDAN MISSION

Mrs. Willie Jordan serves on The Carter Report Board and is the president of the Fred Jordan Mission, on Skid Row, Los Angeles. Like many others that you don’t hear about when the media attacks the Church, she is the essence of honesty and goodness. I am honored to know her and her team who feed the hungry and clothe the naked. Not all the news is bad news.
 

OUR PLEDGE TO YOU

We promise you, by God’s grace, that:
1. We will spend your money wisely to save souls.
2. We will not waste a single dime.
3. We will not act dishonestly, tell lies, or preach smooth things.
4. We will work with all our strength to win the lost to Christ.
5. We will hate sin, the devil, and all his evil ways.
6. We will uplift the Lord Jesus Christ and not ourselves.
7. We will speak plainly, honestly, truthfully, in love and compassion, while God gives us breath.
 

LETTERS FROM THE HEART

Dear Pastor Carter,
 
I thank God for the great work you are doing to spread the Three Angels’ Messages and just to give you health,
strength and determination to carry on. The sermons you preach are an inspiration to me. I have learned that I have to put God first in everything…when I watch some of the sermons that you preach to people who never heard about God and how they embrace it I literally cry.  ~ Andrea, TX
 
 
Dear Pastor and Mrs. Carter,
 
Just a quick note to say thank you.  I am so grateful, all you both do for God and His lost lambs even the weary ones you help pick up and show them God’s love again.
 
For all the heartache, all the long draining days, for being so so faithful, showing us Jesus in all you do.  So so grateful.
 
Regards,
Delrae
 
 
Pastor Carter,
 
Within the past few weeks, you’ve touched this family more than you probably realize. My grandfather doesn’t show much emotion, but you’ve touched him greatly with your card and newsletter. He’s felt much better the last few days thanks to prayer and finding the right medication.
 
Pastor Carter, I know you have no idea who I am, but  I have no one else to thank for being a baptized member of God’s church. I watch your program regularly and learned to not trust a preacher for your personal faith. Thank you, I hope God has blessed you as much as He has me.  ~ Seth, TX
 
 
Dear John Carter,
 
I am thrilled that you are preparing a new truth-filled Holy Spirit anointed TV series. I just sent a letter out to you on June 8th with a gift to help to your trip to Cuba.  My husband and I have been watching the Presidential debates, very true in your comment. One thing is needed you say: “The word of the Lord,” that’s for sure!
 
Praying for you all for a safe trip to Cuba and Ukraine and that many souls will be fed the Word, truth and be saved.  ~ Pamela, MI
 
 
Dear Pastor Carter,
 
It is with gladness that I learned that you will be evangelizing Cuba.  As I have told you before, I am aged and not in the best of health, but I like to do what I can for the Master even when it hurts.  Our dollar has very little value now, so it takes a lot to purchase US dollars. It is at a great sacrifice that I purchased the cheque enclosed for One Hundred Dollars, but I am glad for Cuba and trust that a rich harvest of souls will be gathered. I will be praying for you and your team and for the people of Cuba.
~ Carmen, Jamaica, West Indies
 

You are important, God thinks about you, He is shaping events for your good. God promises to supply all our needs. When we stumble, He is there to lift us up, every day, every time. Heaven will be better than we can imagine. The first million years will be just the beginning. We will be eternally youthful and completely happy. Nothing you do can make God stop loving you. God has a plan and a purpose for every person. I am never alone, never forgotten. BOYCOTT THE BOGUS, SUPPORT THE GENUINE. God allows people to fail us so we will learn to trust Him ALONE. A mother’s proud love is a dim reflection of God’s love for us.
