DR JACK HYLES on;
ACCUSING the BRETHREN, ESPECIALLY LEADERSHIP!
(All NewtonStein "INSPIRED-INERRANT" Bible View!)
PREACHERPEDIA: DR JACK HYLES on ACCUSING the BRETHREN - ESPECIALLY LEADERSHIP!
LOYALTY TO LEADERSHIP - HYLES ANDERSON COLLEGE
1. ALWAYS THINK THE LEADER IS RIGHT.
Never give your opinion when the leader feels strongly.
4. DON’T CORRECT THE LEADER ANYTIME!
The people are better off hearing a wrong answer than to seethe leader put down by a follower. I look at it as aputdown when a leader is corrected.
8. ALWAYS DO ANYTHING THE LEADER ASKS WHETHER IT IS RIGHT OR NOT.
a. I trust him to not ask me to do something immoral or sinful!
b. If I do something I think will hurt someone, it is him who isresponsible to God for it.
15. NEVER SAY ANYTHING NEGATIVE ABOUT THE LEADER.
Not even in a joke.
That is cultic!
When Hyles had been charged by many men of lying andcovering up immorality, he went before his church andcompared himself with God and instructed the people to trusthim as they trust God! He said:
“It is impossible for us to understand God, so He doesnot require us to do so. We have never been God, so wecannot understand God. Because of this, all God asks ofus is our faith, our trust, our confidence.
You cannot understand me.
NO ONE IN THE HISTORY OF AMERICA HAS EVER STOOD IN MY SHOES, SO ICANNOT ASK YOU TO UNDERSTAND. I CAN ASK YOU WHAT GOD ASKS; I WOULD HAVE LIKE TO HAVE YOUR TRUST, YOUR FAITH, YOURCONFIDENCE”
(Jack Hyles, cited from “Statement by the Indianapolis Baptist Temple on Breaking Fellowship With First Baptist Church, Hammond, Indiana,” February 12, 1992).
This is the ultimate in pomposity. In fact, it is idolatrousblasphemy!!
God is perfectly trustworthy, but every man is susceptible toerror.
“It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence inman” (Psalms 118:8).
“Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, inwhom there is no help” (Psalms 146:3)
“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trustethin man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heartdeparteth from the LORD” (Jeremiah 17:5).
Hyles’ put himself above being tested by Scripture orreproved for sin and heresy, and he terribly abused theScripture toward this end.
In the book Jack Hyles on Justice (Hyles-AndersonPublishers, 1992), which contains sermons he preached onWednesday evenings,
Hyles emphasized six points thatwould make it impossible for a church to effectivelydiscipline a pastor and that grant preachers the liberty tolive and teach above human accountability.
These unscriptural principles, to various degrees and in variousincarnations, have spread widely.
First, Hyles taught that the believer can only judge within the realm of his own authority.
“You are to judge in that area and not in any otherarea. ... Not only are you not to take any action aboutthings outside your own area, but YOU ARE NOT TOMAKE MENTAL JUDGMENTS OUTSIDE YOUR OWN AREA. ...
As pastor, I am to rule (lead), and my followersor members are to follow. ... God says everybody is tohave his own area of judgment, and nobody is tointerfere with anybody’s else’s area. ...
It is not your job to figure out what the pastor ought to do in areas of his responsibilities. You are to judge only in your God-given areas. ...
The Bible is telling us not to go into the otherperson’s area of judgment and criticize, even if we knowthe facts concerning a situation. ...
Judging by hearsay and judging by fact are both wrong if it is outside of your area. ... You have been given an area where you are to judge.
Outside of that area, you are not even to judge in your mind. You are to occupy yourself with judging your own area. ...
“When I go hear a preacher preach, I do not judge hissermon. I search for a blessing. God has not given methe responsibility of judging his preaching. ...
“If two witnesses come to you, AND IF IT IS INSIDEYOUR JURISDICTION, you must then investigate it”
(Jack Hyles on Justice, pp. 4, 5, 7, 25, 26, 82).
This is a perfect principle for a man-centered cult.
Hyles claimed that no one could judge him or hold him accountable or reprove him, including his own church members orpastors of other churches, because no one else could exercisewithin his realm of judgment.
Others could not even judgehis preaching or doctrine. They could not deal with his sineven if there were two witnesses, because they are notallowed to “judge” outside of their “jurisdiction.”
To the contrary, the Bible says the believer is to prove allthings (1 Thess. 5:21). The spiritual man judges all things byGod’s Word (1 Cor. 2:15).
Paul was an apostle, but the Bereans tested his doctrine to see if it was of God (Acts 17:11). David and Herod were kings, but Nathan and John the Baptist did not hesitate to reprove them for their sin (2 Samuel 12:7; Mark 6:18).
Paul had no church authority over Peter and the Jerusalem apostles, yet Paul did not hesitate to judge their hypocrisy (Gal. 2:11-14). When it came to judgment, Paul refused to be a respecter of persons. He said, “But of these who seemed to be somewhat,
(WHATSOEVER THEY WERE, IT MAKETH NO MATTER TO ME: GOD ACCEPTETH NO MAN’S PERSON) for they who seemed to be somewhat inconference added nothing to me” (Galatians 2:6).
Young Samuel didn’t have authority over the Tabernacle, butGod told him to judge Eli, the high priest, for his sin ofhonoring his sons above God and “because his sons madethemselves vile, and he restrained them not” (1 Samuel 3).
This is precisely one of the sins that Jack Hyles was guiltyof. Eli apparently had the Hyles’ philosophy that he shouldnot listen to “evil speaking” about his sons, even if thereports were true.
Abigail didn’t have authority over her household, but shedidn’t hesitate to judge her husband truthfully as a “man ofBelial” and a man of “folly” and to take it upon herself tointercede with David about her husband’s wickedness (1Samuel 25).
Second, Hyles taught that Christians are not to believe anystatement or accusation unless it is made by twoeyewitnesses who present their account together.
“If one person comes accusing a person, do not listenunless he is an eyewitness and has a secondeyewitness with him.
If someone comes to you and tells you something bad he heard about someone you are disobedient if you listen to it. If two witnesses come to you, AND IF IT IS INSIDE YOUR JURISDICTION, youmust then investigate it.
These two witnesses shouldcome to you together and present their account together.
We are not to read accusations against individuals inmagazines or newspapers. We are not to listen to themon the radio or television. ...
Often a person will come to me to tell me something he saw, and I will tell him that I refuse to receive it unless he has another witness” (pp. 82, 83).
False accusations and gossip are harmful to the cause ofChrist, but Hyles went far beyond forbidding such things. Heeven forbade legitimate and spiritually profitable truthtelling.
Contrary to Hyles’ doctrine, the apostle Paul warnedTimothy about false teachers, compromisers, and backslidersby name--such as Hymenaeus and Philetus (2 Tim. 2:16-18),Demas (2 Tim. 4:10), and Alexander the coppersmith (2 Tim.4:14-15)
--and Timothy listened to Paul’s warnings withoutrequiring two witnesses or without pondering whether thesemen were in his “jurisdiction.”
Note that Hyles warned his followers not to read accusationsin print or to listen to them in any other media format.
This is why his supporters refused to listen to the accusations that were made against him by R.L. Sumner and others. Theywouldn’t listen, even though multiple witnesses were citedand thorough documentation was offered as evidence.
“Just after the public exposure [of Hyles], we tried to getmeetings for our preachers in California, and word wasspread of where I stood and we were blackballed in thestate of California.* I called up the fellow that was
blackballing us and I said why don’t you at least read thearticle? He refused.”
(Roger Voegtlin, “Why I Am Not 100% for Hyles,” June 25, 1989).
[* Pastor Voegtlin and his people were blacklisted by Jack Trieber of North Valley Baptist Church in Santa Clara, California.
Paul Chappell was Trieber’s youth pastor. Triber promoted the100% Hyles position.]
One of the most frustrating things I have to deal with is thefact that so many preachers won’t read my exhortations forthemselves. They depend on hearsay from some other manabout what I am saying and they refuse to look into thematter themselves.
To ignore warnings about sin and error issued by Christ-lovingmen who provide solid evidence is foolish and isevidence of carnality rather than spirituality, of man-centeredness, rather than Christ-centeredness, of a cult rather than a New Testament church.
Third, Hyles taught that it is a sin to accuse someone and asin to listen to accusation.
“I always defend the accused (unless it concerns a broken civil law).
I do not know whether or not the accused person did that which he is accused of doing, but I do know that the accuser is doing what the Devil does.
>> He is accusing the brethren.
>> The Devil is not a false accuser. He is a true accuser. If you accuse someone to me, I am the witness to your sin of accusing.
A dear friend of mine who had been a preacher for manyyears called me one day. Years ago he quit the ministry,but I never knew why.
He assumed I knew, so he started to tell me about it. I stopped him and said to him, ‘I do not want to know what bad you did. I just want to know about all the good you did. ... I try never to believe criticism. ...
I do not want to know what someone did that was wrong. I do not want to know what a fellow pastor did or was accused of doing. ...
Often people will ask me if I heard the news about someone. I ask them if it is good or bad.
If it’s bad, I stop them from telling me any more. I do not want to hear it.”
(Jack Hyles on Justice, pp. 48, 94).
Here we see Hyles admitting to his practice of ignoring sincommitted by pastors, and he expected to receive the sametreatment.
Hyles made no difference between biblical exposure of sinand error and evil speaking or slander.
It was all the same to him.
In his opinion, accusation or reproof is almost always evil and the one doing the accusing is an evil person.
He cited the Devil, saying that the Devil accuses the brethrenin truth, but Jesus said the Devil is a liar (John 8:44).
Even when he speaks truth, it is from a hateful spirit and is for the objective of spreading lies and tearing down God’s work. On the contrary, godly reproof is not of the Devil.
Godly reproof is speaking the truth in love for the purpose of building up God’s work.
Note in the following quote how that Hyles lumped all“criticism” together with slander.
“If you spend your time with people who criticize and hurtpeople, you are on the road to becoming an evil person.
You hear the evil report.
This is what you will get around evil men--evil reports. If you are around evil men, they will criticize or slander and try to destroy somebody. ...
When people try to tell me evil about someone, I tellthem I do not want to know because I do not want to geton the road that leads to becoming evil” (p. 119).
Slander is to speak lies or to speak something against aperson with the objective of hurting them or hurting thechurch. Godly judgment, godly criticism, and godly reproofis not slander and is not evil.
When the house of Chloe told Paul about the contentions inthe church at Corinth, and when Paul warned Timothy aboutDemas and Alexander, and when John warned Gaius aboutDiotrephes’ pride, that wasn’t slander and it wasn’t an evilreport (1 Cor. 1:11; 2 Tim. 4; 3 John).
When Paul listened to Chloe’s “criticism,” and when Timothy listened to Paul’s “criticism,” and when Gaius listened to John’s “criticism,” they were not pursuing evil.
They were acting wisely.It is wise to know about evil things so that you can avoidthem and not be injured by them and so you can act on thisknowledge in a godly manner, such as exercising churchdiscipline or separating from harmful things.
If someone wants to join my church and I call his formerchurch and ask about his character and whether or not he isunder discipline, it is right for the pastor of that church tospeak honestly and candidly about the person.
If the individual has committed some disciplinary sin and has notmade it right, it is wise to find this out before receiving himas a member. This is not evil doing or evil speaking. It isacting in godly wisdom.
If a church is considering calling a certain man as a pastorwho is coming from another place, the church is wise to findout about the man’s background, and it is wrong if a formerchurch refuses to tell the truth about the man if there issomething in his past that would disqualify him as a pastor,such as adultery and divorce.
It is not evil to seek suchinformation and it is not evil to give such information.Hyles even taught a technique whereby if you hear anaccusation, you can allegedly purge it from your mind.
“If you cannot stop it [‘criticism’] and it gets on the screenof your mind, immediately say, ‘It isn’t true!’ or ‘I don’tbelieve it.’ Then the next time you see that person orthink of him, you will have those words entered rightbeside the accusation.
If you do think of the accusationin your subconscious mind, it will be accompanied by thefact you do not believe it and that it is not true” (pp. 94,95).
This is how Hyles could support so many unqualifiedpastors. He refused to listen to the truth that was spokenabout them and he refused to act on the facts even when heknew them to be true. He was like the monkey who hears noevil and sees no evil.
Even backslidden old Eli didn’t go this far in his sin. At leasthe believed the reports about his wicked sons and made ahalf-hearted effort to reprove them.
“Now Eli was very old, and heard all that his sons didunto all Israel; and how they lay with the women thatassembled at the door of the tabernacle of thecongregation.
And he said unto them, Why do ye such things?
for I hear of your evil dealings by all this people.
Nay, my sons; for it is no good report that I hear: yemake the Lord's people to transgress.
If one man sin against another, the judge shall judge him: but if a man sin against the Lord, who shall intreat for him?” (1Samuel 2:22-25).
Fourth, Hyles did not believe in church discipline.
“On ... occasions deacons have committed what we call‘gross sin.’ I called those deacons in. If they admittedwhat they were accused of doing, I suggested that theyresign the deacon board.
I did not ‘blab’ it around! Those deacons have lovely families who do not need to bear the stigma of their daddy’s sin, just because some preacher thought he was supposed to blab everybody’ssin in front of the whole church.
That is the way I handle it.
I am not going to get up and broadcast everybody’s sins.
I am not going to call my deacons together andreveal why that man resigned” (pp. 53, 54).
This is presumptuous rebellion against the clear teaching ofGod’s Word in 1 Corinthians 5 and elsewhere. Hylesfollowed his own thinking rather than the Bible, and hisfollowers accepted it.
Because of his refusal to expose sins that should have beenpublicly disciplined, he allowed men to continue in their sinand oftentimes this resulted in people (including manychildren) being hurt by them at a later time.
This happened with Jack’s son, Dave. Instead of discipliningDave, Jack swept his sin under the rug all the time he was atFirst Baptist in Hammond, and when Dave was called to thepastorate of a church in Texas Jack did not warn the churchof his son’s moral perversion.
As a result, Dave continued in his sin and destroyed many homes with his adulteries.
In the 1970s Roger Voegtlin was told about Dave Hyles’ longhistory of moral perversion by one of Dave’s best friends.
“I was preaching for Jim Maston in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Afterward we had a sandwich with Maston and his assistant pastor, who had been Dave Hyles’ best friend in college.
As we ate, he started telling storiesabout Dave Hyles. I mean in detail, naming names ofpeople he had committed adultery with. Since then I’vefound it all to be true. One name after another, how hehad an affair here, he had an affair there, and how hewas messing with the teenagers and how there was somuch going on.
But he said Dave Hyles laughed about it and said, ‘I’ll never get caught because I have twice as much on my father.’
I’m talking about in the 1970s I was told this. And Dave told the same story about his father and Jenny Nischick and how his father would sit in the window and see the lights flick on and off in Jenny’s house and how he would see his father take off
and go to the Nischick home”
(Voegtlin, “Why I Am Not 100% for Hyles,” June 25, 1989).
Dave Hyles’ first wife, Paula, testified as follows in 1989:
“Did David’s dad know that he was adulterous before wewent to Texas?
The answer is definitely yes and there are a hundred people who know that. Why he lies about that I will never know. I went to him twice about things I had heard about Dave.
One of the girls told me and Dave’s sister that she was sleeping with him, and we told his dad. Another occasion was the girl who was working at the cemetery. ... I told his dad about that.
“His dad’s philosophy is if I didn’t see it I don’t believe it.And I was the one who was made to look like the badguy in both instances. It was going to be me and my bigmouth that ruined my marriage, not David’s actions.
So yes, he did know. ... There were so many mothers whowent to him who David was having affairs with and toldhim. ...
“Dr. Hyles’ lying was blatant just like David’s. David toldlies that he couldn’t possibly get away with. The problemis that his dad has set himself up so good, thateverybody doubts everything because that’s how theyhave been taught.
If you don’t see it, don’t believe it.
Another philosophy of his is that he doesn’t want to hearanything, because then he doesn’t have to deal with it. ...“I believe that Brother Hyles knows that David had moralproblems from the day he hit puberty, but it has neverbeen dealt with.
I mean when I was dating David, the books that Hyles has written on teenagers and dating, we never did one thing that he taught.
We never double dated. David came and went as he pleased. That boy had not one rule for his life.
He did what he wanted to do. I met him fresh out of high school. We both graduated the same year and went to college. Henever had restrictions on his life.
And his dad would get up and preach this and browbeat everybody to death to raise their kids that way, but David didn’t have to live that way.
I would just sit there, and he would say [from the pulpit], ‘My son David and Paula never single dated,’ and I would look at
David and start laughing and think, ‘This is hilarious; I can’t believe that he gets up and says this.’
“His dad gave me six months of sex counseling beforeDavid and I got married, and I could nail him just withthat and what he said to me.
He was so interested in mine and David’s personal relationship. Every time we talked he would ask me if we kissed, and I would say yes, and he would ask me real intimate questions aboutwhat happened when we kissed.
But the night we got married, he told everybody it was our first kiss! I about laughed in his face. I was embarrassed and humiliated that he said that, because David had kissed every other girl in the church, too, and they were all sitting therelaughing.
“What I can’t comprehend is telling a lie that so manypeople know is a lie”
(Paula Hyles Polonco’s audio interview with Dave Coleman, Nov. 1, 1989).
Because of Jack Hyles refusal to exercise church discipline,Dave Hyles committed immorality with at least 19 women inTexas and broke apart homes and caused the Lord only knows how much far-reaching spiritual damage.
Like Eli, Jack Hyles enabled Dave to do this wickedness by notputting his foot down in a biblical manner.
This type of thing has happened countless times because ofthe refusal to exercise proper church discipline and therefusal to speak the truth about disciplinary type sins and therefusal to stand against pastors who have disqualifiedthemselves from the ministry.
Fifth, Hyles taught that the only sin that is to be reprovedpublicly is the sin of accusation.
“Immature Christians use 1 Timothy 5:19-20 to defendpublicly rebuking people before the entire church. That isridiculous!
Everyone sins ... What is this Scripture teaching? There is only one sin mentioned here, and that is the sin of being a false witness.
God is teaching us in His Word that false accusers should be rebuked before everybody. ... The sin discussed in 1 Timothy 5:19is not the sin of the accused but the sin of the one doingthe accusing” (p. 61).
This is another example of how that Hyles abused Scripturein a frightful manner. He turned this passage on its head anddestroyed its effectiveness. The sin referred to in this passageis not the sin of accusation; it is sin committed by a pastor.
It is not every sin; it is sin that would necessitate discipline,and such sins are described in 1 Corinthians 5:11.
According to Hyles’ perverted teaching, pastors are abovediscipline and cannot be rebuked by the church. The onlymembers that can be rebuked publicly are those who bring afalse accusation.
This is contrary to 1 Timothy 5:19-20 as well as to other Scriptures such as 1 Corinthians 5 and Matthew 18:15-19.
Sixth, Hyles taught that God’s people need human heroesthat should never be criticized.
“I still feel the same awe toward Dr. Lee Roberson as Idid the first time I met him.
The fact is that Dr. Roberson has grown even as I have grown. I do not assume that I have caught up to him, so he is still my hero!
I was with Dr. John Rice for many years, and I knew he had feet of clay. I could have found his weaknesses if I had wantedto, but I did not want to because I wanted Dr. Rice toremain as my hero.
In fact, I tried to avoid seeing his faults. I feel sorry for people who think they have grown to the level of their heroes.
If you ever lose your heroes, you lose your security. ... Your life is not going to be rich if you lose your heroes. ... The best preacher will be the one with a hero” (pp. 58, 62).
