DEFENDING Dr. JACK HYLES;
Against His Daughter LINDA'S HARSH CLAIMS;
(All NewtonStein "INSPIRED-INERRANT" Bible View!)
CHRISTIPEDIA: DEFENDING Dr. JACK HYLES Against Daughter LINDA'S CLAIMS;
The truth is, it seems Linda Hyles has strayed far, far from a Bible, Christian Lifestyle.
In spite of what anyone's parents, grandparents, Pastor, or family, etc., does - NO ONE can use that for an excuse to TURN AGAISNST THE CHRIST THEY ONCE PROFESSED . . .
. . . walk away from the CHURCH of the LORD JESUS CHRIST . . .
. . . and "prostitute" themselves by selling their "soul" and "story" to a nasty, atheist, Christ-hating, Gay-and/or-Pro-Gay liberal as Bill Gates.
Linda Hyles has done that.
This writer - a 25-year friend of the Hyles family and ministries - saw a different picture of the pressure.
Can YOU Imagine being the children - especially the ONE SON - of Dr. Jack Hyles? Can you imagine the PRESSURE on them to do something GREAT FOR GOD?
The desire to "escape" and go where NO BODY really knows you, and Linda and her husband did, leaving much unfinished business and commitment at Hammond.
Linda of course offers NO PROOF for a word she says, and none of her siblings confirm them. In fact, some REJECT THEM STRONGLY, writing a book to the contrary
JACK HYLES’ DAUGHTER’S TESTIMONY OF GROWING UP IN A CULT
The following is excerpted from Linda Murphrey’s testimony at the TEDxOjaiChange event in Ojai, California, April 5, 2012:
“My dad (Jack Hyles) pastored a church that evolved into a 50,000-member cult.
It operated and still operates under the guise of an independent fundamental Baptist church. But those who have left, the followers who have tried to leave, the outsiders, even the media (it was on 20/20 last year) recognize that it is clearly a cult.
“Every member was in complete obedience to my father.
They didn’t dare disagree or be disloyal, for fear of being publicly ridiculed or punished or banished for doing so.
They didn’t go on a vacation without asking my dad’s permission, and if he had said to drink the Kool-aid, I’m not kidding, they would have.
“My dad lived a double life, one of a righteous family man and of a dynamic speaker in the public eye, but [another] one of sordid sexual secrets privately, secrets that only my siblings and me and my mom knew.
He hated my mom.
Treated her terribly.
And even turned his own children (Linda has two sisters, Becky and Cindy, and a brother Dave) against our mother.
We hated her.
He told us she was crazy.
We thought to make him happy, we would hate her too.
Our home was so full of turmoil, hatred, stress, strife, and as a little girl, it was isolating, it was intense, and it was frightening.
He had affairs.
He had a mistress for many years, the wife of a Sunday School teacher. He built her family a beautiful home right around the corner from our house.
You could see their family from our back door. It was craziness, living one way, preaching another.
“My older brother became another version of my father. He pastored a church in Texas (Miller Road Dallas) and was found to be having affairs with 14 different women.
He divorced his wife and lived with one of the 14, (whose baby died under Dave's Watch, for which he took the 5th amendment and the case is still open, according to some - eventually Dave married this gal, they had another son, and she backed over him with her car and killed him).
My father tried desperately to cover it up.
My dad moved my brother to another church where he was found to have had 17 affairs with different women, and he just recreated what he had seen my dad live.
And my dad did nothing but cover it up.
I felt like I had one main responsibility as a child. It was simple, but daunting, and that was to keep all the secrets, and there were so many.
“You see, he had taught us that the best way to please God was to please him (dad), because he was God’s man.
He taught us that to please him we had to keep all the secrets. We could never even tell our best friends what went on in our home, because we might be the cause of the destruction of his ministry.
I literally feared for my very life if I ever told what went on in our home, for fear that it would hurt his ministry.
I was so afraid, and the greater the secrets, the greater my fear, and the greater my determination to keep quiet.
“I got to tell you that the money part of it was pretty nice.
As a kid--think about it, tithes and offerings from 50,000 people, hello--it created a lavish lifestyle.
[NOTE: This is a misstatement here, as the Hyles and all staff lived in very modest homes, and had very modest salaries, and often, the Hyles family did not own a family car, but drove the Church "mail wagon" - a used station wagon of 7-10 years old.That Bro. Hyles OVERSAW the receiving and spending of millions, is NOT having it for himself like the HEALTH and WEALTH ministers!
It was this Great sacrifice, (living in Chicago with a Salary of $14,500 a year in the middle 1980's!) that caused his people to rust him.
>> He often worked 14-16 hours a day, 7-days a week!
>> Put all of his book sales in the ministry;
>> Lived very simply;
>> He insisted all folks of all ages simply call him Bro. Hyles, and did not accept the Dr. Title at his Church, seeming to have great humility
>> SO what was there to "doubt" or "suspect?"
LINDA CONTINUES: My father owned most of the city where the church was. He owned a college, two high schools, two grade schools, a cemetery, lots of buildings.
He was very wealthy.
And even to our adult years, he owned us. He owned our homes, our cars, our furniture. [The CHURCH owned the houses of the ministers as "parsonages"].
He owned our lives, and we didn’t dare cross him, because we were too afraid we would lose everything.
He died a multi-millionaire.
He left nothing to his children.
He left everything to the organization, which my younger sister and her husband now lead.
***[NOTE: But isn't this how it should be? Isn't this the great cry of the HEALTH and WEALTH ministries that they TAKE all the money from the ministry for themselves, . . . give it to their children (Joyce Meyer, Oral Roberts, Copelands, etc.,) and ofter leave ministries in disrepair and broke!
So it seems Bro. Hyles heart was in the right place, money wise!]
Testimony of 40-year-Ministry Acquaintance of Jack Hyles:
Remember, Mrs. Hyles has a net of God's love underneath her. Cindy Hyles Schaap has a net of God's love underneath her. Becky Hyles Smith has a net of God's love underneath her. Dave Hyles has a net of God's love underneath him.
And yes, and Linda Hyles Murphrey has a net of God's love underneath her.
The enemy is not a Linda Hyles Murphrey, the enemy is Satan who is laughing at the confusion he has caused the family of God.
How about this, should we not logically and Scripturally deal with the confusion?
Is Jack Hyles to blame for all of this? That's ludicrous!
HOW DOES ONE RESPOND to LINDA'S ACCUSATIONS?
I have been asked how does one respond to accusations against the dead, especially if it is a famous man and he is your dad? (Consider Cindy, Becky and Dave)
I Corinthians 11: 1, "Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ."
It is not a difficult thing to recognize from the Scriptures that a man who is following Christ has a right to lead God's people.
This does not mean he forfeits that right to lead, because someone following him . . . goes astray and no longer follows him as he follows Christ.
"IF" this were true,
"THEN" Jesus would have been unqualified to lead . . . as JUDAS, turned aside into deep sin, and MANY turned back and followed him no more! (John 6)
"AND" Apostle Paul would have been unqualified to lead . . . as DEMAS, turned aside, "loving this world", and "ALL they that be in Asia (Churches of Galatia, his First Missionary Journey) are turned away from me!" - APOSTLE PAUL, in his LAST WRITING: 2 Timothy 1:15 - VERY SAD, ACTUALLY)
If Abraham, Moses, David, Paul and Jesus could not get ALL followers to stay TRUE and STEADY, it would appear we should not expect perfection of Jack Hyles, Jack Schaap, Jerry Falwell or Rick Warren.
Was Bro. Hyles following Christ perfect? Absolutely not.
God only has imperfect men preaching a perfect Book to imperfect people in hopes of perfecting them to be a little more like Christ.
Sometimes men say a Pastor has forfeited his right to lead because he does not "rule" his own children in his own house.
That word "rule" simply means "lead."
Thus God's REQUIREMENT is:
>> A man provides the "wise, Biblical leadership" in his house
>> Hopefully, SOME his children will follow in his leadership.
** If ALL of the children "get in Dad's Ministry, this is evidence that Dad (or Joyce Meyer) is PAYING the kids massive sums of money, million dollar homes and fancy cars . . . for doing NOTHING EXCEPT . . .
** Maintaining the FAMILY FRONT, that "we're all dedicated disciples" . . .
** When there is little, if any difference between Joyce Meyer and and the Kennedy's, Bush's or any wealthy family who CONTROLS THEIR CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN by NO MONEY if they STRAY . . . and MASSIVE AMOUNTS of MONEY it they STAY!
FACT! Noah didn't persuade Ham to do right!
FACT! Abraham didn't persuade Ishmael to do right, though he pleaded with God for Ishmael to be Godly!
FACT! Isaac didn't persuade Esau to do right!
FACT! Jacob didn't persuade Judah to do right! (Tamar)
FACT! Joseph's children Manasseh and Ephraim are unknown;
FACT! Moses didn't persuade his Children, Gershom, to be ministry to do right, and his grandson was a leader of idol worshippers!
FACT! Eli's sons were very unGodly!
FACT! Samuel's sons wee very unGodly!
FACT! David didn't persuade Absolom and others to do right, and even Solomon, long term, ended miserably
AND THERE ARE MANY MORE!
FACT! If a child who does NOT do right, FORFEITS the Dad's Ministry, THEN [A] 90% of all ministers would have to step down today . . .
. . . and [B] many others would COMPROMISE family standards to INCLUDE the Ishmael's and cover for the Judah's and Solomon's!
COnsider Dr. Bob Gray of LONGVIEW TEXAS (not the BG child-molester of Jacksonville FL) has four wonderful children and 10 beautiful grandchildren of whom I am very proud.
However, their decision to follow Christ is a credit to them for deciding to follow Christ and not as much mine or their mother.
We provided the lead, while they provided the "will" to follow and do right.
God bless them as they follow Christ.
If a child chooses to not follow the parents or Christ then don't blame God, the Bible, the local church, fundamentalism, the standards, the Sunday school teacher, or least of all the parents.
We are all born with a "will." What we do with that "will" is up to each of us.
Accusations are never proof!
Anyone can accuse anyone and all of a sudden it must be true simply because it is out there? What kind of gratitude is this by grown children?

15) Ask Mrs. Beverly Hyles, who calls Jack Hyles: "The greatest Christian I have ever known!"
16) Ask former member and First Baptist Church attorney Voyle Glover - who wrote a "Hate Hyles Book" 20 year ago, WHY he has recanted and is NOT reprinting when the ONLY used copy available on Amazon asks $989 for s single used copy!
. . . Glover could sell a million copies at a HUGE PRICE the first 10 days . . . but he REFUSES to reprint, and ADMITS he was TOO HARSH!
17) Ask Hyle's sister Earlyne Stevens who served with him for decades
18) Ask Dave Hyles, who admst being ANGRY with his Dad over various things, including how his dad said "Hi" and "Bye" so nicely for Jenny Nischeck . . . but Dave in all those DECADES of popping in and of his Dad's office and OBSERVING him at Church, OUT of Town and at HOME . . . NEVER accused him of doing sin!
19) Ask Becky Hyles, who will NOT confirm what Linda says!
20) Ask Cindy Hyles, who wrote a book about her dad "The Fundamentalist Man! My Dad, Jack Frazure Hyles" - REFUTING Linda's Lies with a BOOK FULL Of FACTS . . .
. . . that if not TRUE, their current 50,000 members would SCORN CINDY OUT OF TOWN!
WHAT DOES MRS. HYLES HAVE TO SAY?
Hundreds have asked me: "Have you talked to Mrs. Hyles?"
The answer is "Yes!"
Hundreds always ask: "What has Mrs. Hyles said?"
My answer is always similar:
"First of all if I were you, I would look at her life and let that be her statement to you.
With 55 years of being married to Jack Hyles, 42 years sitting on the front row of FBC choir, while her husband led in the building of a great church.
To the common man this ought to be an answer in itself.
Watch Mrs. Beverly Hyles today, this 83 year old godly woman as she teaches her Sunday school class each Sunday.
How can an 83 year old Godly widow of a great man of God stand so tall in the saddle unrattled while you need assurance?
If you want assurance you should hide and watch this Godly lady for a while. She is Grace personified!
I will tell you what she has said,
This was stated at his funeral as well.
Is she lying? I think not! Linda seems bitter. If 1/10th is what she says is true, Mrs. Hyles should be the most bitter woman on Earth and go to her grave cursing JACK HYLES!
Ask Mrs. Hyles' current pastor about her?
Ask Mrs. Earlyne Stephens, Dr. Hyles' sister about her?
Ask the members of her current Sunday school class? Mrs. Hyles' integrity is above reproach! Her life "IS" her statement.
So why should such a godly lady of 83 have to put up with this junk?
There are too many things that are easy to check. One would have to be blind with anger to ignore the obvious and easily checked accusations.
It is so easy to check income tax returns. It is so easy to check so many things.
However, it appears people WANT to believe the lies.
I wonder why all of these silly accusations are being taken seriously?
Too many people who were close to him can testify to the real Jack Hyles and the baseless and absurd allegations.

Could you please share your State of Salvation that we may better serve our readers? At this time, I do not believe Jesus is the Saviour! I do believe Jesus is the Saviour; I know I have Eternal Life!I do not believe it is possible to 'Know in this life' if one has Eternal Life;
In 'VERY FEW MINUTES'...you can Know for Certain if you're saved for CERTAIN ...or not! 1 John 5:13 I want to know with CERTAINLY what God's Word declares:
A Second Most Important Question! Can you explain to a Spouse, a Child or a Friend HOW "Eternal Life as God's FREE GIFT" - Unearned and Undeserved? Romans 6:23 If not, please read "Eternal Life as God's FREE GIFT!" PLEASE, will you name "Ministers-Best-Friend.com" aloud . . .. . .in Prayer Daily, or as often as you think of us? PLEASE?
Ministers-Best-Friend.com is an Absolute, Bible-Believing, Christian Ministry, seeking to serve the Ministers who serve the LORD JESUS.

Obviously, all phases of Christianity do not agree doctrinally or politically and sometimes even disagree on the actual facts concerning a particular scripture, fact, leader, nation or situation, hence there are well over 10,000 denominations extant.
We neither claim nor present ourselves as having perfect knowledge in all things. Thus views and articles posted on this website are those of their authors – who often insist their identities, denominational, and/or doctrinal persuasion be made known for various reasons – offered to you as wise people of God - Christian Patriots, whatever your nation - to discern for your own judgement and edification.
Thus we trust, hope and pray, that ALL BELIEVERS who look to the Lord Jesus ONLY, to the Word of God ONLY, to "His will (ONLY!) being done on this Earth AS IN HEAVEN"
In the NAME of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour:
