100 Huntley Street - Crossroads
100 Huntley Street is the flagship television program of Crossroads Christian Community. Mr. David Mainse founded this worldly ministry forty years ago and on their website he claims to share his deep faith in Jesus Christ with others, and to see God relate in a very real way to each individual's life.
On their website they also claim to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people in a contemporary form. We don't know what they mean with 'contemporary' but we do know with certainty that they do not preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
By means of this article, we are here to inform people that David Mainse, his family and associates have been deceived, and they deceive all of mankind through their programs, guests, books and literature, as they share their faith in a false Christ that does not transform individual's lives as described by the Word of God.
The Bible tells us in Revelation 12:9 that the whole world has been deceived and Christ Himself warned us in Matthew 24:24 that there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
After God revealed Himself to us and opened our eyes to the truth concerning all spiritual matters, and He blessed us with the gift of knowledge to know the difference between darkness and light (Acts 26:18), we also learned about the god of this world, the false Christs and false prophets.
One of the first manifestations of God as we ministered, was the downfall of Jimmy Swaggart and of Jimmy & Tammy Bakker, after we had notified them on several occasions that God would visit their sin and show the people of this world what spirit they served and what spirit the Pentecostal movement was of (Luke 9:55, Acts 26:18).
We also had notified the hierarchy of numerous churches, to inform them that God would bring them to an open shame through the many sex scandals that were to follow.
People unfortunately still attend these churches today and also still believe whole-heartily that their church leaders are servants of God, while in truth He neither sent them or commanded them, as they are the servants of sin and of the spirit of this world (John 8:34).
Ralph Rutledge was a former pastor of the Faith Tabernacle Church in Halifax, N.S. and later he became senior minister of the Queensway Cathedral in Toronto. The church at the time was a member of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada and a sister organization of the U.S. Assemblies of God, from which TV evangelists Jimmy Swaggart and Jim Bakker were suspended as a result of incidents involving women.
Believe it or not; after God brought them to an open shame twenty years earlier, and after having revealed what spirit they serve, the Queensway Cathedral is still in existence today, through which thousands of people are being deceived.
It is blasphemy, as they claim to be followers of Christ, but in truth they belong to the synagogue of Satan (Rev. 2:9).
Ralph Rutledge also had his own TV program 'Revival Hour', through which he delivered his deceitful and misguided message and deceived all the people who tuned into the program to listen to his false gospel.
In addition to his duties with the church and the television program, he also appeared on a regular basis on his brother-in-law David Mainse's TV program, 100 Huntley Street.
In 1988 I had personal contact with Mr. Rutledge by telephone and informed him that God would show the people of Canada what spirit he served and that God would bring him to an open shame. Obviously my conversation was met with derision and disbelief.
We invite you to read the article What is Sin? listed on this website.
In August of 1989 and less than two years after our ministry had contacted him, we all learned that Ralph Rutledge had been defrocked by the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada for homosexual incidents that involved 'grown men' and that were acknowledged by Mr. Rutledge himself (Mail Star, May 9, 1990).
Before news of the scandal broke, we had also made contact with Michael Aud, pastor of the Faith Tabernacle Church in Halifax in August 1988, the church where Ralph Rutledge had been a former pastor as mentioned earlier.
We also made our first contact with David Mainse in February, 1989 to show him what spirit he served. Please remember, this was all before news of the scandal involving Ralph Rutledge had become public.
Consider Dr. Mr. Rober H. Schuller, pastor of Crystal Cathedral (another Cathedral) in Garden Grove, California, and known around the world through his weekly 'Hour of Power' television broadcast.
We wrote him in December of 1988 to inform him that he was a false preacher who was deceiving the people through his program the 'Hour of Power.' We further informed him that God would eventually visit his sin and bring his ministry to nought.
I am sure that our letter was met with derision and disbelief. However, less than two years after we wrote him, we were able to read in a local paper on May 24, 1990 that Robert Schuller was going to pull the plug on his 'Hour of Power' worldwide ministry, if viewers did not send him $3.2 million to cover its debts.
Earlier this year, we learned that his ministry has now fallen on hard times and is in financial ruin. According to MSNBC, his son and successor Robert A. Schuller has already resigned as pastor. When we received information about his downfall, we forwarded a copy of our earlier letter to his office, to remind him that we had brought him the truth twenty years earlier.
When are the blind guides of this world going to learn that the Bible is true when it says that the Most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands (Acts 7:48; 17:24)?
Much has happened in the last twenty years, which we would like to share with the people of this world, in the hope that they will turn to the true and living God for repentance and that they may come to the acknowledging of the only true and living God.
For a better understanding what it means to repent we invite you to read the article Repent listed on this website.
We have listed below a chronology of our communications to give people a better understanding how they have been deceived by the spirit of this world (Rev. 12:9).

It is our hope that by reading and studying the enclosed, you will turn to God so that He will give you repentance to the acknowledging of the truth, and that you may recover yourself out of the snare of the devil, who has taken you captive at his will (2 Tim. 2:25,26).
Once you repent and turn from the power of Satan (whose servant you are) unto God and from darkness unto light (Acts 26:18), God will reveal to you what it means to be a sinner and what spirit you presently serve.
We look forward to answer any questions you may have. In the love and service of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

The following letter was forwarded to Ralph Rutledge, and a copy was sent to David Mainse, after God had brought him to an open shame and after he was suspended by the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.
August 29, 1989
Mr. Ralph Rutledge
Box 700, Station U
TORONTO, ON M8Z 5P9
It was less than two years ago that I contacted you and introduced myself as the servant of the Lord Most High. Again, I contacted you in the spring of this year, and as a good soldier for Christ I brought you the truth about the 'One' who sent me.
I informed you earlier how God would visit your sin and how you would fall. I did not come then to destroy you but to save you from the deception which is in this world (Rev 12:9) and from the powers of darkness.
I also informed you:
- That you were not a servant of God.
- That you were not born of God.
- That you are not preaching the gospel of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
- That you presented a false Christ.
- That you were leading the people astray.
- That you don't understand the word of God (1 Cor 2:14).
- That your prayers were all in vain.
Even though God has now brought you to an open shame, it is unlikely that you will believe in my words and the Lord Jesus Christ, but maybe you can proclaim to the nation that there is a servant of God whose words they should listen to.
Therefore, before it is too late, warn your sons and tell them to stop preaching a false Christ, and also your brother-in-law David Mainse, who for 26 years has been leading the people of Canada astray through 100 Huntley Street. For what he preaches has nothing to do with the teachings of Christ. If they don't listen, they will fall in like manner.
Don't be foolish like Jimmy Swaggart and go back to preaching deceit, for tragedy will be greater for him the second time around, since he went back to his own vomit. I warned him on three occasions how God would visit his sin.
Look at all the people that still follow him after God brought him to an open shame. The gospel is true when it says how people prefer darkness over light (John 1:5; 3: 19).
You yourself did not believe in him that God sent into your life, but maybe this time you will. My message, however, remains the same. Ye must Repent.
You never knew God and are still separated from Him, and under the power of sin (Satan) as was your whole congregation, but you never were able to inform them as you are spiritually blind and separated from God.
Instead, you made them believe that they were born of God, and as a result, they still walk in darkness according to the spirit of this world.
In the love and service of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Please call if I can be of help to you.

P.S. The following newspaper articles were enclosed with the original mailing.
- Former Halifax evangelist praised for recognizing weakness, burnout.
- Suspended TV evangelist defrocked after admitting homosexual activity.
After God had brought his brother-in-law to an open shame, we wrote David Mainse to remind him of our earlier correspondence that he serves the same spirit (darkness) as his brother-in-law, and that he deceives all his followers. Please note the different people that were copied.

By now I am sure that Jimmy and Tammy Bakker, J. Swaggart and your brother-in-law Ralph Rutledge, along with many catholic priests and Pentecostal ministers, had wished that they had listened to the voice of God when He forewarned them of His visitation, but they did not want to believe that they were sinners and under the power of Satan.
While they claimed to be the servants of God, in truth, they have transformed themselves into the apostles of Christ (2 Cor. 11:13,14) and were never transformed or ordained by God. For this reason I wrote them and asked them to REPENT.
You yourself do not believe that I am the servant of the Living God (John 14:17), and for this reason, I know that God will visit your sin for He listens to all those that belong to Him (Matthew 18:19,20). Till such time, you will be like a ravening wolf taking from the people whatever you can, to build your own monument.
Natural brute beasts you are, speaking evil of the things you do not understand (2 Peter 2:12). You refer to heavy metallers as those that do the works of Satan, while you yourself deceive all the people at 100 Huntley Street through his very powers (Rev. 12:9), for your works are not after Christ but a false Christ.
When the day comes that God brings you to an open shame, remember what I wrote to your brother-in-law, that I did not come to destroy him but to show him the way that leads to the Kingdom of God. I asked Mr. Rutledge to listen to me for the sake of the people.
They are still all astray and under the power of sin (Satan) as you are. For this reason my message remains the same.
YE MUST REPENT
The living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is still a God that judges in this present evil world (Psalm 58:11). Just ask Mr. Rutledge and as you yourself will come to see.
In the love and service of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

More than a year later we forwarded Ralph Rutledge another invitation in the hope that he would contact us, so that we may show him the truth concerning the true and living God. As you will note in my earlier letter to Mr. Rutledge of August 29, 1989, we informed him that God would visit Jimmy Swaggart a second time and indeed He did, as he was disgraced a second time, after he had been caught with a prostitute on October 11, 1991. Please note the different people that were copied, including David Mainse of 100 Huntley Street, along with some of his associates.
October 14, 1991
Mr. Ralph Rutledge
Box 700, Station U
TORONTO, ON M8Z 5P9
After I blew the trumpet back in 1985 and warned J. Swaggart that God would visit his sin, we all heard about his disgrace in 1988.
When I wrote you and even made a personal phone call, to inform you that God would visit your sin, we all know what happened when God revealed what spirit you were of.
As a good soldier for Christ, I offered my assistance to show you that the true way of "REPENTANCE" was the only way back to the true and living God. But you did not believe then that God sent me with His love and His message of truth (John 17:23).
After God disgraced you, I sent you a follow-up letter (see copy attached), in which I asked you not to be like Jimmy Swaggart and to go back to preaching deceit. I also wrote that tragedy would be greater for him a second time since he went back to his own vomit.
And as we have heard now the recent news concerning J. Swaggart, it is clear that God once again, has manifested Himself through me. But I know that even this will not convince people that they are deceived (Rev. 12:9) and that God sent me with His truth and His message of repentance.
As you have seen God's hand recently during the Senate judiciary committee hearings on Clarence Thomas, and how God has made foolish the wisdom of the wise, including those of judges, lawyers and people with the highest authority, so will God put to test and tear apart the foundations and the wisdom of the religious authorities of this world.
Do not attempt to look for times and seasons when this all will happen, for the time of judgment is already here. You are not able to see it, as a result of your own spiritual blindness. For this very reason did I call you to Repentance and called you to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).
But be assured, it will happen. Even the 'Mystery Babylon' (the religions of this world with the catholic institution as the head and the mother of all harlots) will eventually fall, as described in the book of Revelations chapter 18, but not till all things have been fulfilled.
No one knows of that hour, but my Father in heaven. Many events are still to take place and if I told you about them, you would not believe me, just as you did not believe, when I told you about your own downfall.
As you will note, I have copied numerous people that have been contacted in the past (there are many more besides these) and that also received my testimony concerning the true and living God.
But like yourself and J. Swaggart, they all have resisted the Holy Ghost (Acts 7:51) and did not believe that God sent me into this world as His messenger.
As always, it is our hope that you will turn to God and invite you, therefore, to contact us with any questions about the true and living God.
In the love and service of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Sixteen years after we forwarded a copy of the above letter, we e-mailed David Mainse and most of his associates the following letter on August 8, 2008.
Subject: Lessons from the Word of God.
When I first contacted you in the late eighties, I was a mere babe in Christ and young in my faith. In many ways we were still unlearned about the principalities and powers that control this world (Eph. 6:12), but since God has manifested Himself and has continued to strengthen us, we fully understand how God works, as without our testimony people would just view it as another occurrence and God's manifestation and judgment would not mean anything.
As a servant of the spirit of this world and sin (John 8:34), your goods have been pretty much in peace but now that a stronger than your spirit has arrived he will take from you all your armour wherin you trusted and will divide your spoils (Luke 11:21-23).
As the sons of God, we have come for the pulling down of strongholds (2 Cor. 10:4; Matthew 10:26-28). As a servant of the spirit of this world and Satan's Kingdom, you are blinded from the fact that 'Religion' is Satan's strongest playing card, through which he has deceived this whole world (Rev. 12:9).
Religion is a form of natural transformation, but it does not conform to the transformation required by God. The way this world has stolen the writings of the Bible, of which they have no knowledge or are able to understand (1 Cor. 2:14), has been Satan's trump card, especially since the days of 'so-called' evangelization.
Since the breakdown and downfall of all major religions, Satan has brought in the next level of deception through the many ministries that have sprung up, but their end will be like the Swaggart's, the Bakker's and the Armstrong's.
Your ministry and all the others, preach the same message and are of the same spirit (darkness). I strongly suggest you visit the web site www.hwarmstrong.com and learn what thousands of former members have to say about the Worldwide Church of God, founded by the Armstrong's.
Most ministries function as a family organization and as a father and son(s) team. So did the Armstrong's who circulated a magazine entitled: 'The Plain Truth'.
The web site the former members have launched, is headlined 'The Painful Truth' and once again is proof that their ministry and church 'The Worldwide Church of God' had nothing to do with the spirit of God.
I had an opportunity this week to review some of the CV's of your guests and the great swelling words they use, i.e. The Body of Christ, The Keys to The Kingdom of God, etc., etc. are all in vain. These are all words that they have stolen and are used to deceive the people of Canada and the USA.
But thanks to the true and living God who will bring judgment on 'so-called' evangelization, including all the associated ministries including your own. Since most of them preach a gospel of prosperity and feeling good (music), I know that God will remove the prosperity from the people of this world, and the rich will even start to envy the lifestyle of the people of many nations in Africa and of the many small communities in this country.
People will no longer be able to make any contributions that have been used to build these family businesses and empires. You take the money away and what do you have left – nothing. People will scatter in all different directions and curse the founders of these ministries, as the former members are already doing on the Armstrong website.
Other strongholds of Satan's Kingdom are the medical profession, the business community (media and the legal profession), and sports and entertainment. I believe that many people in your ministry will be stricken with illnesses and diseases as part of God's judgment, and there will be nobody to help them.
Your prayers and the laying of hands will be all in vain. Most people in Eastern Canada already have to wait a full year for a simple MRI. And all this is taking place and happening because people do not want to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, as they prefer to take pleasure in following after a false Christ (John 3:19).
I will leave you with some lessons from the Bible. It is truth and is not be discerned or to be interpreted (Hebrews 5:12; 2 Peter 1:20).
- But the natural man (you and your followers) receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God.
- And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom (you and your followers preach after man's wisdom).
- Now we have not received the spirit of this world; but the spirit which is of God (you and your followers are of the spirit of this world).
- For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ (you and your followers are false apostles).
- For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? (you and your followers please men) for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
- You did service unto them which by nature are no gods (you and your followers service an image of a false God and a false Christ that by nature are no gods).
- No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life (you and your followers only concern yourself with issues about this life as you have no knowledge of the difference between good (God) and evil (Satan) and do not possess the key to the Kingdom of God).
- You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it to you (you and your associates were ordained by men and were not chosen by God. You have transformed yourself into the apostles of Christ). I have been trying to tell you who you father is but you will not believe me (John 8:43-45).
- Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber (you and your followers are the thieves and robbers the Bible speaks of).
- I pray for them (the believers): I pray not for the world (I spoke the other day to one of your associates on a 'so-called' prayer line. I do not want to go into the details but it was an abomination).
- I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world (you and your followers are loved by this world as you are not of God).
- They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world (you and your followers are of the spirit of this world).
- For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world (you and your followers follow the spirit of this world and are bondage to it and being held captive by it).
- Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God. And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is the spirit of Antichrist (you and your followers live according to the flesh as you do not believe that Christ came into the flesh. If you do, why do you continue to live according to the flesh? You and your followers follow after the spirit of Antichrist).
- We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error (you and your followers cannot hear us unless you repent and turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God. You are spiritually blinded and cannot acknowledge that you are a sinner and under the power of Satan).
- Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him (you and your followers cannot receive the truth as you do not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ but in a false Christ).
- And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment (unless you repent you and your followers have already been judged. Judgment starts with the House of God).
- For judgment I came into this world, that they which see not might see; and they which see might be made blind (because you and your followers claim that you see you have been made blind).
- But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you (the love you and your followers talk about and share is the love of the world but you refuse to accept the love of God).
- Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. The sword is the word of God and are the very words I have used in this letter are not my own but the very words of God, which will bring judgment on you and your followers and because you believe us not you have been condemned already (John 3:18).
- They are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is their destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is their shame, who mind earthly things (unless you and your followers repent you will remain the enemies of the cross of Christ and because of your work have brought not only judgment on yourself but on all the people of this country).
- No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment (this is why we tell you and your followers to repent so God can change/transform the cloth).
- Neither do men put new wine into old bottles (this is why we tell you and your followers to repent so God can change/transform the bottle).
- It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of god (since you and your followers claim to be 'so-called' spiritually rich, it will be impossible for you to come to the acknowledging of the truth and repentance).
In His Service.
Many people throughout the world have to come to realize that most of these mega ministries and churches only have one objective, and that is to grow the membership to their organizations and grow their bank accounts.
Most of these ministries are family-run businesses and through their shows and websites they offer materials that have nothing to do with the gospel of Christ and the Word of God.
Through their offerings their single goal is to obtain your name, mailing address, credit card information, etc., etc., so they can put you on their regular mailing list and their regular requests for donations. They also have so-called prayer lines that offer no solutions to those calling in, as their prayers are all in vain.
Some of them have as many as six to twelve family members on their payroll and many of them have access to company cars and expense accounts, etc, etc. Some of these ministries even own private jets as they spread their message of deceit, while using little snippets out of the Bible of which they have no spiritual knowledge.
Now that the country is falling on difficult economic times, which has resulted in hardship for many, they even use that to their advantage and prey on the people as they (the people) become more vulnerable while looking for solutions.
The Bible is correct when it warns the people to be aware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves (Matthew 7:15; Luke 11:39).
They have their so-called membership drives on a continuous basis, and while they try to convince their listeners that their message of (false) hope will get them through these difficult times, they continue to take money from the people for their own selfish reasons and private gain.
One of the offerings 100 Huntley Street promoted last year was a book entitled 'Salt', a word the author had stolen from the Bible. For this reason did we write David Mainse on August 12, 2008 in order to make straight the way of the Lord Jesus Christ.
When Christ took the apostles up the mountain, He taught them that they were the salt of the earth but if it the salt lost his savour it would be trodden under foot of men (Matthew 5:13).
Since you do not want to acknowledge that you are a sinner and that you are a servant of sin and the spirit of this world, you have no knowledge of the word 'Salt' that you used for your latest book.
If you were to study the early history of the Bible, especially how the Roman Catholic Church controlled the use of the Bible, it is no great thing that the world came to use the writings from Moses to John without any spiritual meaning.
You yourself stole the word 'Salt' for your own gain, as a means to swell your own coffers to deceive the people through your ministry. There is nothing spiritual about the book, unless of course you are referring to the spirit of darkness.
Ye adulterers and adulteresses (those that have a relationship with the wrong spirit), know ye not that friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God (James 4:4; John 15:19; 17:14; Galatians 1:10).
Furthermore, your carnal (natural) mind is enmity with God also (Rom. 8:7).
The following are the works of a natural man, according to the wisdom of man and the spirit of this world.
- Your vain attempt to stop Bill C-38 (same sex marriage) from passing.
- Your vain attempt to recall the Order of Canada award for Dr. Morgentaler.
- Your vain attempt to stop abortions.
- Your vain attempt to stop Sunday shopping.
- Your vain attempt to heal the sick. The word 'sick' refers to those that are spiritually sick (Matthew 9:12; Mark 2:17; Luke 5:31).
- Your vain attempt to stop hunger. The word 'hunger' refers to those that hunger and thirst after righteousness from God (Matthew 5:6).
- Your vain attempt to care for the poor. The word 'poor' refers to those that are poor in spirit (Matthew 5:3).
Your ministry preys on the works of the devil (feelings, e.g. music, the poor, the sick, the hungry and the downtrodden of society, e.g. prostitutes, alcoholics, drug users, etc.) because the 'Salt' you use has no savour.
The word 'savour' refers to wisdom, knowledge and faith, etc., without which the apostles (the salt) would have been trodden under foot of men.
As someone who has transformed himself into an apostle of Christ (2 Cor. 11:13,14), you don't know that you are serving Satan's Kingdom (Matthew 12:26,27).
Poverty, hunger, immorality, sickness and diseases are God's punishment on mankind as a result of the unbelief of the nations. And because people prefer darkness over light, God's judgment is standing at the door with far greater consequences.
God came into this world in the Name of Jesus Christ for the believers and those that were able to acknowledge that they were born in sin and under the power of Satan.
And because they cried out in truth and acknowledged that they were poor in spirit and they hungered and thirst after righteousness, God revealed Himself to them and delivered them from the bondage of sin and the powers of Satan.
But because you say you can see and that you are spiritually rich you will remain blind (Matthew 19:24; John 9:39-41) and your end shall be according to your works (2 Cor. 11:15).
1 Peter 4:17. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God (the believers): and if it first begins at us what shall be the end of them that obey not the gospel of God (John 3:18).
As I have mentioned before on several occasions now: unless you repent you have been judged already (John 16:11). To repent means to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan (whose power you are under) unto God (Acts 26:18).
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches (believers); To him that overcometh (the spirit of this world) will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God (1 John 2:13,14; 4:4; Rev. 2:7,11,17; 2:26; 3:5,12,21; 21:7).
For a better understanding of the 'Tree of Life' we encourage you to read the article 'Who is God and who is Satan' listed on this website.

A few days later I wrote David Mainse again on August 14, 2008 as he referred to Mike Huckabee and Mother Theresa as the 'Salt of the Earth' on his show.
I decided to watch 100 Huntley Street this morning so I would be able to show you how you are deceiving your listeners. It is ironic how you spoke of Mike Huckabee this morning being 'The Salt' of the Earth while promoting your book, after I sent you the article by David Kirkpatrick of The New York Times yesterday entitled: 'Evangelical Crackup' (copies are available upon request).
Mike Huckabee, as a former Southern Baptist Minister, does not know what spirit he is of and what spirit he serves, as he is spiritually blind. If he was a Christian and a follower of Christ, he would not be running for the office as President of the USA.
- Know ye not that friendship of this world is enmity with God (James 4:4).
- Even the spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (John 14:17).
- If ye were of the world, the world would love his own; but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you (John 15:19).
Like yourself, Mr. Huckabee is of this world and serves after the spirit of this world and a false Christ. His wisdom, like yours, is according to the wisdom of this world and not after Christ (1 Cor. 2: 5-14).
Unless he repents and turns from darkness to light and from the power of Satan (whose spirit he is of) unto God he will die in his sin.
Because you walk according to your natural spirit (the devil) and speak with a carnal mind, you considered Mother Theresa also 'The Salt' of the Earth. This was also a lie. Mother Theresa was like the millions of other nurses throughout this world that look after the sick.
Mother Theresa did not know what spirit she was of (Luke 9:55), and she walked according to her natural spirit and the spirit of this world. Unless she repented and turned from darkness to light and from the power of Satan (whose spirit she was of) unto God, she died in her sinful state.
For a better understanding why the Pope declared Mother Theresa a Saint, and why the world needs to have its heroes, we encourage you to read the article Sainthood by the Pope listed on this website.
Some of the more silly things on your program this morning, were a group of teenagers doing hip-hop. Like all your other guests, they used the name of Christ in vain.
It is ministries like 100 Huntley Street that make these young people believe that they are Christians, while in truth they are children of the devil (Acts 13:10; 1 John 3:10), and unless they repent and turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan (whose spirit they are of) unto God, they will die in their sin.
Have you never read in 1 Timothy 4:8, that bodily exercise profiteth little, but godliness is profitable unto all things.
The act by Tino, Olinka & Aurilia Wallenda was even more abominable, as they, like all your other guests, not only claimed themselves to be 'so-called' Christians, but even informed all those that were listening that they were going to have eternal life.
Any true Christian would not dare to judge him/herself (1 Peter 4:17) and unless your trapeze artists repent and turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan (whose spirit they are of) unto God, they will die in their sin.
Also, if they were to repent, God would show them that in their present state they have already been judged (John 16:11).
What made the performance even more deceptive was the performance by Mr. Norm Maclaren, when he used words from the Bible to describe the trapeze artists.
All of the above are to show you that the 'so-called' changing of lives everybody talks about on 100 Huntley Street is a natural transformation, and this is how Satan has transformed himself into an apostle of Christ and an angel of light (2 Cor. 11:13,14).
If a drug user stops taking drugs, that does not make that person a Christian and a follower of Christ. That is a natural transformation (self-judgment) and your ministry preys on these kinds of people to deceive others.
When a prostitute decides to stop practicing her trade, does not make that person a Christian and a follower of Christ. That is a natural transformation (self-judgment) and your ministry preys on these kinds of people to deceive others.
If someone sings on your show and uses the name of Christ (gospel music), that does not make that person a Christian and a follower of Christ. That is a natural transformation (self-judgment) and your ministry preys on these kinds of people to deceive others.
In the article 'Evangelical Crackup' by David Kirkpatrick of The New York Times, it is quite clear how divided Satan's Kingdom is and for this reason it will not stand (Matthew 12:25,26).
If you are not still convinced that this present world is Satan's Kingdom, may I suggest you read the latest item on the 'Current Events' page on this website entitled 'Ban on new gay bishops'.
Your ministry is of the same spirit (Luke 9:55), but you are unable to see it as a result of your own spiritual blindness.
And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life; and they are they which testify of me (John 5:37-39).
As mentioned before, God will deal with your ministry according to your works as it was never built on the foundation of Christ (1 Peter 1:17; Rev. 2:23).
Once the money-flow stops, it will collapse like a deck of cards, and God will see to it that it does.

After speaking the above words, we have turned all things over to God as judgment belongs to Him. As soldiers for Christ we have shown the way of the true and living God, but as people prefer darkness over light, they have been condemned already (John 3:18,19).
For twenty years we have attempted to show David Mainse and his associates the great gulf (Luke 16:26) their worldly ministry has created between people and God's saving grace, and therefore, on April 14, 2009 we wrote them our final e-mail.
Subject: Everything Will Be Revealed.
Matthew 10:26. Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and that shall not be known.
As we have explained on numerous occasions, the Bible is a spiritual book that can only be understood by the believers of the true church (House of Israel - Body of Christ) 1 Cor. 2:14, especially the parables.
To the unbelievers, it is just a story without any spiritual meaning. They have stolen the words from the Bible and this is how the devil (natural spirit) has transformed himself into an angel of light (2 Cor. 11:13,14).
Even a simple parable like the 'sower of the seeds' mankind is unable to understand, because seeing they see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand (Matthew 13:13).
Let me give you an example, and explain the parable of the rich man and the beggar Lazarus, and give you its spiritual meaning. The rich man are all those that think that they are spiritually rich, so-called Christians or members of any other religion, and lately all those that claim to be so-called Born Again, while in truth they walk according to the spirit of this world and their natural spirit (the devil).
Now Lazarus is the one that acknowledges that he is a sinner (poor in spirit) and under the power of the spirit of darkness, and acknowledges the need for a Saviour that through His love will transform him and turn him from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18) and help him overcome the spirit of this world (darkness).
You can follow the rest of the story in Luke 16:19-31, but unfortunately, you will not be able to understand it as it is spiritually discerned, unless you repent, of course.
The sores are explained in Hebrews 11:37 while the crumbs, the rich man's table, the dogs and the great gulf all have a spiritual meaning.
Now the self-righteous and self-proclaiming spiritually rich man, who had tried to save himself through man-made doctrines and an image of a false god, went to hell, but seeing Abraham and Lazarus afar off and since he had five brothers, cried out and asked if one could be sent to his father's house.
But Abraham said unto him; they have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
The rich man then said: Nay father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And Abraham said unto him, if they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
For a better understanding what it means to Repent, we invite you to study the article posted on this website. The Bible is truth and there is no lie in it.
Our explanation of the above parable is not an interpretation (2 Peter 1:20) as it is spiritually discerned. Also, he that is spiritual judgeth (discerneth) all things (1 Cor. 2:14).
Take the parable of the Good Samaritan. Unless you repent, you will never come to the understanding who the 'certain man' is, who was spiritually broken and who the thieves were and what was meant with his raiment.
Likewise, without repentance you will never understand why a priest and a Levite both passed by on the other side, or understand who the Samaritan was.
Trust me, a priest and a Levite are the first ones that would pass by on the other side today and would not even recognize a spiritually broken man, as would your ministry since you are spiritually blind.
Your ministry has been pouring new wine into old bottles, meaning that the people you have ministered to, have not been transformed from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18) and for this reason the bottle will break (Matthew 9:17).
In addition, you have been trying to put a new piece of cloth unto an old garment while you have been trying to convince the people that they are clothed with a new garment.
In truth they are not dressed with a new garment dressed by God and in fact are still in bondage to the spirit of this world. For this reason the rent in the garment will be made worse (Matthew 9:16).
Like yourself, all the people that support and donate money to your ministry, have transformed themselves into an angel of light, while they are still children of the devil (their natural spirit).
Remember that your Ministry is responsible for deceiving all the people and for this reason your house will collapse as part of God's judgment, as it is built on the wrong foundation (spirit).
Luke 6:49. But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built a house upon the earth; against which the stream beat vehemently, and immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great. We invite you to read Job 8:13 and Hebrews 10:28-31.
Jeremiah 31:34. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor.
John 6:45. And they shall be all taught of God (not man).
John 14:26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he (not man) shall teach you in all things.
Hebrews 8:11. And they shall not teach every man his neighbor.
1 John 2:27. You need not that any man teach you.
1 John 2:20. But ye have an unction from the Holy One (not man), and ye know all things.
Since you will not listen to God's voice and in order to give people a better understanding of our work as Soldiers for Christ and how they have been deceived, we will be preparing a document to be posted on the website in the future. It will feature a summary of some of our communication with you and your associates, along with copies of correspondence, starting in 1989.
In His Service.

In 2012 Crossroads Christian Communications (Crossroads) and Crossroads Television System (CTS) founder Rev. David Mainse was recently diagnosed with a blood condition called myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), also referred to as pre-leukemia.
