Please remove my testemony from the web site. I feel in my heart that the spirit of this project is not in accordence with God's will. We will not accomplish anything by throwing stones at Stair. We will only be acting like him.
Thankyou for your prompt action to my request.

(Matthew 7: 15-18)
"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?
Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
(v20)Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
"Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgement."
(1 John 4:1)
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many flase prophets have gone out into the world.
(2 Timothy 3:16)
All Scripure is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,...
(Titus 1: 9-13)
.......holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict.
For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole households, teaching things which they ought not, for the sake of dishonest gain.
One of them, a prophet of their own, said, "Cretains are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons."
This testimony is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith.
( 1 Corinthians 5:1-7)
Is is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and such sexual immorality as is not even named among the Gentiles- that a man has his father's wife!
And you are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he who has done this deed might be taken away from among you.
For I indeed, as absent in body but present in the spirit, have already judged (as though I were present) him who has so done this deed. ( Read on)
(Galatians 1: 6-9)
I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel,
which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to prevert the gospel of Christ.
But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
And we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.
1 Timothy 5:20
Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear.
(2 Timothy 4:2)
Preach the Word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.
So you are saying that it is God's will for Stair to continue? To spread his poisonous doctrines??
Is it God's will for false teachers to continue to spread their poisonous doctrines among us?
It is God's will to keep silent??
These people like (Stair) come onto the scene and rob people of sound doctrines already established in God's Word. Should not these thieves (false teachers) be exposed?
Then He taught, saying to them, "Is it not written, My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations? But you have made it a 'den of thieves'"
Today these false teachers come peddling their own brand of religion, their own man made doctrines, change the word of God, ADD to the Word of God, Subtract from the Word of God, Twist the Word of God, etc. Isn't it NOW time to stand up and expose Mr. Stair's errors and sins for EVERYONE to SEE??????
The whole Bible abounds in examples of false prophets being named (marked) and exposed!
As Christians, we do all "in the Name of Christ" We do nothing in our own names and in our own flesh (human powers)
(1 Peter 4:10-11)
So you are saying that it is God's will to just let Mr. Stair continue to abuse sexually, spiritually, mentally, and physically??
We are to just close our eyes and ears to his:
1. Distortion of God's already established Gospel
2. Total unbiblical lifesyle
3. His bad fruit
4. His False doctrines and teaching
5. Sexual immorality
6. dishonest gain
7. His abuse of authority
Please do not tell me that exposing Stair and his deeds are not God's will. Because the Word of God clearly teaches us that it is a Christian duty and right to expose those that bring in false teachings, bring in their own sins, and then declare they have power and authority over God's people.
