​    NOTE: Due to the seriousness of the issue presented in this message and because one particular preacher, who has gone down a certain path, has such widespread

    popularity and influence, Pastor John felt it appropriate and necessary to quote him and make known his name.  Normally, Pastor John refrains from providing names while

    addressing something in a negative fashion, but we see in II Timothy 4:14-15 the Apostle Paul did the same thing for the purpose of protecting the flock.

Two Plans - Pastor John DiZazzo

God and Satan offer every person two very different plans for life.  Neither one is forced upon you—you choose which plan to follow.  And the choice isn't so much between Satan and God as it is between sin and righteousness.
