The true story of James Lloyd doing business as Christian Media Network

Prophecy for Sale


Christian Media and The 10 Commandments Part I




When people hold others to a high standard, scriptural and moral behavior, others have the right to hold them to the same standard. In Exodus chapter 20 beginning at verse 1 we are commanded through the Word of God to personally keep His commandments or laws. Because none of us is perfect, we all must struggle to do God's will. But when one group, so vociferously demands that others comply to the letter of the law, with the precepts contained therein as does James Lloyd and his Christian Media Disciples, and then condemns all those who have an imperfect understanding of these concepts, James Lloyd and company should be held to the same standard they require of others. This pious pontification, is the height of hypocrisy.


As the times of tribulation Christ promised us draw closer, these scriptural admonitions to keep God's commandments in spirit and in truth, take on an exceptional urgency. A brief examination of the more obvious wickedness of the network that purports to do the will of the Lord, will be examined through the commandments God has given us to obey. 


Matthew 7:21-23:


7:21 "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." 


And while these commandments are tramped upon in the sight of God and his disciples, James Lloyd laughs all the way to the bank.


Commandment I


Exodus 20:1 "And God spake all these words, saying, 20:2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me."


The main god James Lloyd worships is the god of mammon.One need not look too closely to notice the commercial character of Christian Media. You can discern his love of money by reading Chapter 6. This is evident every half hour as countless products are peddled as part of the propaganda of the network regimen. Every broadcast James Lloyd does is predicated upon the marketability of the tape set that will be generated by the show, or by which products the listeners will be motivated to buy after hearing the sales pitch. Need more proof? See Chapter 7.  No matter what you may dread, James has a product to exploit any apprehension you may have, and suit your needs. Need even MORE proof? Read the lawsuit where James admits he is "doing business as" CHRISTIAN MEDIA.


Are you afraid of ill health? No matter how healthy you may feel today, you can listen to the "Sound Body Show" with Susan Lenox and you will feel ill in no time! No matter. You can simply send Christian Media $60 and they will sell you a COLLOIDAL SILVER GENERATOR to keep you healthy (I'm sorry, it's spelled CO-LLOYD-AL Silver Generator; no self worship going on here is there?). Never mind the fact that all you are getting is a plastic box with a few wires and 3-9 volt battery attachments inside (batteries included), and 4 pieces of silver "wire". But don't worry, all that profit is going to support "the ministry!" After all, he does have all those cows to feed and somebody has to pay for their maintenance. The fact that nobody told you that there is nothing else to a colloidal silver generator, is all part of "the learning curve". You are paying the huge percentage markup for an education!


Of course, you can simply build one yourself, but that wouldn't help "the cause" now would it?


Perhaps you fear the effects of old age. Well for only $30 you can buy $16 worth of MSM to "lubricate" those old tired joints and give your skin that smooth, babies bottom feel. They will tell you that MSM toothpaste will strengthen your gums, MSM "Water Drops" will improve your hearing and dissolve cataracts, although they cannot guarantee it. (I would not advise getting any into your eyes!)


And now you can buy the "Sound Body EVO-1000 Gas Mask"! Pay no attention to the fact that they have just pasted the name of Susan Lenox's Sound Body Health Product Platform onto the commercial for the device, and try not to pay too much attention that the actual product is called the EVOLUTION 1000 (Evolution being a "bad thing"). Too much scrutiny to the details will spoil all the fun. It will also ruin the fun to discover that THE SAME PRODUCT can be had for $32.00 less elsewhere!

Sound Body Evolution Suit

Of course the cheaper product is identical to the Sound Body variety except for the fact that James Lloyd has nailed his advertised merchandise to the Cross of Jesus Christ to make it more marketable to the saints! No alarmist prediction is too theatrical, no exploitable personal trepidation is too farfetched to escape being a topic for discussion. And if he can twist some scripture to try and make it apply to any given subject of panic...presto, it becomes "bible prophecy!" Are you apprehensive about flying saucers and space aliens?


Buy the tape sets on UFO's. Are you terrorized about planetary catastrophism? Feed your panic with Planet X ("just don't forget to buy our products which are designed to protect you from it's deadly effects"). 


One can hear that Planet X is coming last's last wait a's NEXT spring... "Gee, I wonder how I could have missed this..." James says with aplomb "...the prophecies are so clear now..." Good thing he sold all those books and tapes on the subject. One can never be TOO prepared for a rogue planet.


"America will be destroyed" by June 30th" (or July 4th depending upon James' mood that particular moment), and you NEED to buy the survival supplies that James in his beneficent magnanimity just happens to be kind enough to sell you.

Does the fear of Nuclear War scare you? James Lloyd just happens to have the potassium iodate product that will calm your fears.

Do you dread famine? Why trust in God when you can purchase Applegate Ranch Brand Beef Jerky, guaranteed to be safe to eat until you open it. Remember not to open it UNTIL after America is destroyed, you wouldn't want to know what quality product you are getting until AFTER there is no chance to return it would you? But don't forget the "bible prophecy!" Hurry, hurry, hurry, step right up! Your soul is in deadly peril of eternal Hell fire because you don't know the truth about the Image and the Mark of the Beast, the False Prophet (the Pope, not James Lloyd) and the ONLY person who has the TRUTH is James Lloyd.


Let's not forget how important it is to know who the Antichrist is either. You might be fooled by him unless you know who he is right? Unless you know the truth (that only James Lloyd can impart) about bible prophecy, your salvation is uncertain. But fear not, you too can avoid perpetual torment for only $17.95 POSTPAID! But you had better ACT NOW!

As if all this commercial hype and worship of mammon were not bad enough, James has another deity which serves as the godhead for his followers. His name is JAMES LLOYD. The God of Self. Click Here for Testimony of his Self Worship


That there are more than a few individuals who are willing to sit through the two hour daily egotistical, self congratulatory broadcast known as the Apocalypse Chronicles, never tiring of being told "WE have been blessed with the gift of PRO-PHE-CY", shows that PT Barnum was certainly right: "there is a sucker born every minute".

James Lloyd Hocus Pocus

James Lloyd never tires of his own self praise, and loves to call himself a "Prophetic Phenomenon". Glory to the Lloyd, praise the Lloyd, the Lloyd be praised from on high. Although it is not stated in such terms, this is the stuff that James Lloyd simply eats up, and which he believes is his just due.


One need not be a genius to notice it. A blind man could see it. But James Lloyd can himself simply not gather as much. To criticize him, is blasphemy in Christian Media circles. He likens himself to Moses being murmured against in the wilderness. 


Deuteronomy 18:18 "I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him." We are told in Acts chapter 3, that this was a prophecy which spoke of Christ. Yet James likens himself to Moses using the same reasoning. If you should speak against James, you do the same as those who spoke against Moses in the wilderness; you are of the group of Korah, and doomed to Hell. 


Is James Lloyd now the Savior? Is it he who died for our sins?


He also likens himself to Job (when explaining incidents where it would appear that the hand of God is against him), and to Jonah when it becomes evident that his prophecies are false (he uses this one to explain his Grand False Prophecy of 1998). Of course, he doesn't call it a false prophecy, he calls it a "failed prophecy", as if somehow it was not James Lloyd that had failed, but that the prophecy itself was at fault.

It's ALL about the MONEY!

Given the fact that James cannot escape the reality that he has spoken a vain thing in the name of the Lord, it would seem odd for a man who claims to fear God, has once begun setting dates for the beginning of the Great Tribulation. However, given his commercial bent and his enormous appetite for praise, there is no great mystery as to why this has occurred yet again.


If experience has taught us anything (and for some, that conclusion seems to be in doubt) it is that he has always profited handsomely from his false prophecies.


In 2003, he once again began making predictions about the start of the Tribulation, this time claiming that the time of "Jacob's trouble" would occur before the end of June. As of the date of this writing he's has already begun back pedaling.Rather than tell you myself, I will give you a post from one of the brethren who frequents the "For the Glory of the Lord" Bulletin Board, named Roger. 


"Well James is already stating that it now can be as late as July 19th now because God may give us two more weeks to get ready and now James is looking at the 42 months view rather than the 1260 days. He mentioned that some morons will give him some flak on July 5th if it doesn't happen. He stated that we may have a few more weeks or it could happen earlier." 


So, does holding James Lloyd to the same standard to which he holds others make me a moron? Well, if standing against self serving tripe presented as bible prophecy to warn those who might be beguiled by liars ,con men and thieves, makes me a "moron", then let me strive be the chief moron among morons.


I will trust the word of God as given to Paul: 1st Corinthians 3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.


Commandment II


20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 20:6 And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.


This is a commandment which is routinely ignored by the Christian Media Cult. Many people do not realize the scope of this commandment, but a self proclaimed Prophet ought to know better. A couple of examples: Susan Lenox is very proud of her collection of "Angel" statues, and has devoted much time to their maintenance and repair. James Lloyd sees nothing wrong in this. Ralph And Kathy Haaff also claim to be "vessels of Honor" as they devote themselves to the knick-knacks they themselves give a place of honor and admire in their home.


Although this seems to be seen in Christian circles as "unimportant" as long as we don't sacrifice meat unto them, this is a commandment that is broken regularly by well meaning believers in America. Our coinage and currency are engraved (Graven). Many of our homes are adorned with statues and other graven images. Ironically, this was one of the main complaints the so called Protestant's had against the Roman Catholic Church. To say we do not worship them because we don't burn incense of pray to them is academic. This is no different than erecting a so called Christmas tree in one's home. The idea that it is God's will that they piously denounce people who do not understand that it is an abomination to God that his people place these trees in their homes , and then maintain that it is alright to erect statues and other "Graven Images" is to practice hypocrisy.


To use personal sophistry in defense of images can be excused in the case of the majority of believers (although it breaks this commandment) as ignorance. However, to maintain in so vociferous manner as do the "Stars" of the Christian Media, that they adhere to all of "The Big Ten" commandments and denounce those who have less knowledge of spiritual matters as relates to "Accepted Pagan Practices of the Church", while ignoring such a basic fundament in their personal lives, such as the attachment to statues and other images, betrays a mocking sense of indifference to God's law.It can be summed up by the familiar refrain "It doesn't mean that to me." To hold others who are in error in ignorance to a high standard, and then apply another standard to yourself, guarantees spiritual trouble. To claim (as does James Lloyd) that the Ten Commandments have not been canceled, and then translate them to your own personal liking, betrays the spirit being served.


Commandment III



20:7 "Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain." 


What does the phrase "taking the Lord's name in vain" mean? What is the biblical definition of vanity? Let us turn now to the Strong's bible concordance.




Strong's # 7723 from the same as 7722 in the sense of desolating pronounced shav' {shawv} or shav {shav} defined as follows:

1) emptiness, vanity, falsehood

a) emptiness, nothingness, vanity

b) emptiness of speech, lying

c) worthlessness (of conduct)

That James Lloyd has regularly used the name of God in falsehood, has been established. The fact that he has issued false prophecies for the sake of gain, fulfills all above descriptions of the word vanity.


There are many teachings which issue forth from the mouth of this "bible teacher" in vanity which border on blasphemy. Take for instance his teaching on the place where demons reside called the abyss, the deep, outer darkness, and the bottomless pit:


James Lloyd teaches (through his "divine revelation") that this bottomless pit or abyss is outer space. He claims that this area also called outer darkness, is not in the center of the earth but in the vast reaches of what are called in the bible, the heavens. Even the most rudimentary studies of the word pit will tell you that a pit is dug from the earth. His confusion is evident upon its face unless one is mesmerized by his hype that he is a great prophet.


This confusion is caused by three assumptions of logic. Number 1: Space is dark, number 2: Space has no bottom (that man can ascertain), and 3: that the words "outer darkness" must mean outer space (nothing man knows of is deeper that outer space).


If we just take his word for it without examining the bible, one can be easily misled. However, in the light of scripture taken IN CONTEXT, his argument holds no water. Lets examine the meaning of these words, Bottomless Pit.


The bottomless pit is mentioned in Revelation, chapter 9 as the place from which the demons and their king, named in the Hebrew tongue Abaddon ascend. That one does not ascend from the sky but instead, descends should be obvious, but that is what James Lloyd teaches on the subject. Revelation 11:7 also tells us this is where The Beast which kills the Two Witnesses will come from.


Bottomless: Strong's Number 12.

1) bottomless

2) unbounded

3) the abyss

a) the pit

b) the immeasurable depth

c) of Orcus, a very deep gulf or chasm in the lowest parts of the earth used as the common receptacle of the dead and especially as the abode of demons!

Now let's see what the bible says about the pit and the deep.


Consider Ezekiel 26:19-21 26:19


"For thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall make thee a desolate city, like the cities that are not inhabited; when I shall bring up the deep upon thee, and great waters shall cover thee. 26:20 When I shall bring thee down with them that descend into the pit, with the people of old time, and shall set thee in the low parts of the earth, in places desolate of old, with them that go down to the pit, that thou be not inhabited; and I shall set glory in the land of the living; 26:21 I will make thee a terror, and thou shalt be no more: though thou be sought for, yet shalt thou never be found again, saith the Lord GOD."


This clearly does not speak of heaven.


When Christ was about to cast out demons we are told in Luke 8:31: "And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep." Of the place where the dead are, we are told in Romans 10:7:" Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)"


Now we will see what the Word of God says about the phrase outer darkness:


Matthew 8:12 "But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." Will they be cast into Heaven? 


Matthew 22:13 "Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." 


25:30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


But will there be weeping in Heaven? Revelation 21:4: "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." All these places seem to describe the place where DEMONS reside. If this refers to OUTER SPACE, from whence shall CHRIST come upon his return?


Acts 1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
Are we certain though that heaven speaks of outer space. Well, where are the stars but outer space?


1st Chronicles 27:23 "But David took not the number of them from twenty years old and under: because the LORD had said he would increase Israel like to the stars of the heavens."


God mentioned the stars in his promise to Abraham. Genesis 5:15: "And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be."


So the stars are in the heavens. But where does Christ come from again?


Matthew 26:64 "Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven."


Matthew 6:9 "After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name."


Does Christ then come from the bottomless pit? Does God make his habitation with the Demons? Do we pray, Our Father, which art in the bottomless pit?


This idea that the heavens are the bottomless pit of Hell, and that the outer darkness of the deep from whence the unclean spirits come is pure blasphemous drivel. The entire idea that God lives with the evil spirits dwell shows the depth of James Lloyd's cavalier attitude toward biblical interpretation, and should make his keen lack of spiritual perception obvious to any sincere believer who is willing to trust the bible over the capricious utterances of a man who has demonstrated nothing so completely as his desire to sell a product using the Holy Bible as a commercial platform.


But the bottomless pit couldn't be in the Earth could it? Well, ask yourself this question: how far would one need to dig into the Earth to reach its bottom? Answer: there is no bottom, because you will only end up at it's surface should you be able to dig that far. Folks, if there is anything you should know about the Earth at all, it would have to be the fact that THE EARTH IS ROUND! The Earth no more has a bottom than a round room has a corner. Yet there are many Christians who are willing to accept this kind of specious reasoning because of the novelty.


The saddest thing is that they are led astray because they do not critically compare such "prophecies" to what God has told us in the bible. We are told in the book of Acts of a group of believers who were not afraid to confront possible heresy, and we are told that they were commended for their measuring the reports of men with the testimony of God.


Acts 17:11 "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so".


Unfortunately, there are some people who have for one reason or another, a deep seated need to be led. In the world today, many people are conned into trusting mere men to show them the way to a deeper, more profound understanding of the mysteries of God.


Although I have not heard him curse the name of God outright, the fact that James Lloyd is motivated by his own vanity in speaking great swelling empty words, while claiming the anointing and authority of God cannot be missed. He will not be held guiltless.



Commandment IV


20:8 "Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 20:9 Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it." 


The Sabbath is a very popular issue at Christian Media. It could even be said to be James Lloyd's Pet Commandment. He is fond of making the public proclamation "We keep the Sabbath here..." and "...This is one of the Big Ten (Commandments) and I haven't read that it has been cancelled..."  Quite a show is made of this this pious posturing, but what is the truth of the matter? Once again, it doesn't take a great deal of observational skills to discern the nature of this falsehood, all you have to do is examine the claims against the obvious.


One very disturbing indication surrounds the celebration of what James Lloyd referred to on his May 16th, 2003 Apocalypse Chronicles broadcast as a "Dark Sabbath". Are we told in God's word to celebrate "The Dark Sabbath"? The very words conjure up images of witchcraft, and are reminiscent of the Satanic Rock and Roll Group "Black Sabbath" with lead singer Ozzy Osbourne.


Will they sacrifice children (the very question of child sacrifice reminds me of the threat Rick Walters made, to have an 8 year old boy denuded of his innocence by subjecting him to a "sexual examination" by Child Protective Service" Doctors, as a threat against me, to stop the expose you are reading now)? What vile people they are.


Do you want to take part in their Dark Sabbath? Go ahead. Remember these words which will be brought before you on Judgment Day! You will answer to an angry God for every vile thing you allow yourself to participate in. There are no excuses.


The next clue that James Lloyd has a double standard regarding the Sabbath, is to simply listen to his network on the weekends. He is constantly selling merchandise on internet. Every Saturday and Sunday, his network continues the "streaming" of shows produced throughout the week on the internet with commercials intact. To claim that it is not feasible to remove them for the Sabbath or to say it could only be done with great effort is nothing more than expedient sophistry. It would take very little effort to create a "program file" sans commercials to run during the Sabbath. Sales always take precedent at Christian Media. This is the most important principal, THE BOTTOM LINE! That is why you hear OCCULT PROGRAMMING on Christian Media! That's why you hear Christian Identity Preachers like Rick Strawcutter on Christian Media. That's why you have 501 (c)(3) ministries such as The David Carrico Organization on CMN.


Don't you get it? IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!


I know of what I speak. I worked for him producing his "shows" for some time, and he knows as well as I do how simple it would be to create an alternate audio cache to avoid the selling of merchandise on the Sabbath over the internet stream. Indeed, given the great peril he maintains the Christians are in for their failure to strictly adhere to the keeping of the Sabbath, it only stands to reason that he would go to great lengths to keep it in all his dealings, unless he was using the issue to claim to meet a biblical standard in hypocrisy for the sake of commercial benefit. His history of standing on the moral high ground in public, while doing and justifying the complete opposite has been amply demonstrated in this publication, and cannot be missed by any but the most slavish disciple of the "ministry".


The running of commercials is not only done while breaking the Sabbath on the web on Saturday's, but on the radio during the Lord's Feast Days which are given to us as solemn Sabbaths. James has not only worked on these Feast Days, but takes Christmas off by justifying himself with the hollow excuse, "the shortwave stations would prefer that we don't broadcast on that day, because they generally give their people that day off and it's easier for them if we don't do a live broadcast". This is of course utter poppycock as the stations he broadcaston while I was in his employ, (WBCQ and WRMI) merely patched into their transmitter the audio stream the network sent them. There was no production done on the transmitter end, and in fact, the shortwave stations broadcast everyday of the year. I myself always did a live broadcast on Christmas, generally being the only one to do so at Christian Media Network. This was in addition to my being the only person working in the studio on the Holidays of Christmas, New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Forth of July, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving etc...


To make matters worse, he thinks nothing of booking "Prophecy Seminars" (or speaking engagements) on Saturday's so that he might sell his wares and recruit new victims. To justify this, he will claim that "... Christ healed on Sabbath..." But this begs the question: How much did Jesus Christ charge for his healing? Did our Savior peddle merchandise in the Temple or Synagogues? Did he have his wares laid on tables, offered for sale? Did he pass the hat (Or Turban) during his "speaking engagements"? to collect for "the ministry?" 


Just who exactly was healed at the James Lloyd speaking "engagement"? And when he hangs out with the other Cults at Christianity expos on the occasional Saturday, does he teach of keeping the Sabbath while breaking it? You only need to click here for proof of James Lloyd's Merchandising on the Sabbath. It is amazing how a biblical precept which is so foundational to the teaching of Christian Media, could be presented as vociferously as it is, and at the same time be so ignored. It is also amazing that so few of the people who follow him are willing or able to recognize it.


Isaiah 58:13 states; "If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: 14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it". 


The Sabbath is not given to us as a day to complain to the Creator of the Universe and bewail ourselves, but is a day to rejoice in His blessings. It is a day off from everything this world hurls at you. It is a day to bask in the love of God with a thankful heart. Put yourself in the position of a parent here and think about taking your child to a beautiful park to enjoy the day and take his mind off the rigors of the week. You go through all the trouble to set this up for this child, and all he can do is complain. To mourn and complain on the Sabbath shows the same kind contempt for the day our heavenly Father has sanctified.


The very idea of keeping a "Dark Sabbath" is an abomination to our God, and those who intentionally dishonor this gift of the Lord shall heap up to themselves the rewards due. This idea of telling people they are to keep a "Dark Sabbath" is a striking example of "in your face" hypocrisy, and the fact that the "Dark Disciples" of James Lloyd would consider this conscionable, may serve as just one reason why James Lloyd can feel justified in his criticism of Christians as "morons".


"People are idiots" he loves to say, and given his experience with many of those who support him, we cannot lay all the blame for these personal perceptions on him alone.
