Matthew 7:15 (NIV) “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

Matthew 24:11: (NIV) “…and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.”

2 Timothy 2:23 - 25 (NIV) - 23Again I say, don’t get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights. 24 A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people. 25 Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth.

Update on Sheri Klouda

Readers: I wanted to give you an update on Dr. Sheri Klouda, the former professor at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (SWBTS) that I blogged about in the following posts:



Her situation made its way onto my blog when our pastor, Dr. Donald M. Brunson, maligned Dr. Klouda during his July 13, 2008 evening sermon at First Baptist Jacksonville by completely mischaracterizing her testimony regarding the worthiness of her case in light of scripture (click here to listen to the audio of Mac's lie). Mac Brunson, who markets himself as a preacher of deep instense study and preparation and historical accuracy in his sermons, did not even bother to contact Dr. Klouda before his sermon (instead relied on testimony about Sheri's testimony told to him by Paige Patterson's lawyer) to get the right story of how she viewed the validity of her case. Still to this day Brunson has not contacted Dr. Klouda to express his regret over his incorrect statements made in his sermon. How sad, especially when considering that Brunson was her pastor at FBC Dallas as the saga at SWBTS unfolded.

Now for the update: Dr. Klouda emailed me today to let me know that she recently received a check for $280 from Wade Burleson of monies donated to the the Klouda fund by members of FBC Jacksonville and readers of this blog, which will help pay off past medical expenses incurred from the health problems of her husband. Dr. Klouda expressed her deep thanks to the readers of this blog for giving to help her with her husband's medical expenses.

The Klouda's are still in need of additional monies (around $2000) to draw down their medical bills so that her husband can get a much needed defibrilator more quickly. If you wish to donate money to help the Klouda's, you may still do so by sending your check to:

Emmanuel Baptist Church
2505 West Garriott
Enid, Oklahoma 73703

Designate your gift "Sheri Klouda Fund". Your gift will be tax deductible, as Pastor Wade Burleson has set up a benevolent fund for the Klouda's through his church and 100% of all monies received will go to the Klouda's.

Thanks in advance for your generosity in helping the Klouda's even more. I will provide updates in the future as Dr. Klouda keeps me posted.
