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

 

Prophecy for Sale

 

Christian Media and The 10 Commandments Part 2

 

 

Commandment V

 

20:12 "Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee."

 

We have no information as to how they measure up on this one.

 

Commandment VI

 

20:13 "Thou shalt not kill."

 

Matthew 5:21 "Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 22. But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire."

 

If Matthew chapter 5 has taught us anything, it is that sin begins in the heart of mankind. It doesn't take a very long time to discover the hatred the teachings of James Lloyd engender. We have already discussed the murderous words spoken by James Lloyd, which he spoke without shame on international radio. We have examples of James Lloyd actually threatening violence against his opponents in extreme hatred in an attempt to inflame the passions of his listeners, evidenced by on air statements such as, "The only reason they (his opponents) are still alive, is that it is against the law to kill them" and, "If I see you (another opponent) you die".

 

This already led one of his own network hosts Rick Walters, whom James compared to the prophet Jeremiah (Yes, he actually said this on the air) to attempt an assault with a deadly weapon upon an unarmed man. Rather than reprove Walters, James applauded him, citing this attack as proof that Walters was "a real man".

 

With MURDER IN THEIR HEARTS, many associated with the Christian Media Network have displayed a "hateful spirit" toward those with whom they disagree. At the prompting of the cult leader James Lloyd, his followers have been encouraged to outwardly denounce and demean individuals who are not following party lines. This has led to at least two threats against me personally, by self proclaimed "vessel of honor" Ralph Haaff. In one incident, reacting to a statement I made on the radio to the brethren about resisting the desires of the flesh, Ralph Haaff made an on air statement referring to me that that if he wants to get into the flesh with me, he knows where I live..." The implication was clear, that he was inviting me to "come over and sin" with him, that he wanted to fight. Of course I am not prone to violence, and I am certainly not intimidated by him as he might hope.

 

Another time, mentioning the upcoming gathering at Clifty Falls State Park in Madison Indiana (scheduled for Saturday July 5th, 2003) he again implied that he was intent upon bringing violence against me and the brethren in the statement: "I could go down there and bring my cousins..." mentioning that they were "big" fellows. That Ralph Haaff and his fellow "Brethren" would consider breaking the Sabbath with threats of violent behavior should be abhorrent to any follower of Jesus Christ, but as followers of James Lloyd, this type of behavior is sanctified and in keeping with the spiritual precepts of a gang of common hoodlums. It should be clear to anyone with even a modicum of intelligence that Ralph Haaff is a thug. It is too bad that there are such people in the world who, having so little in the way of intellect (and even less spiritual discernment), cannot understand anything themselves but brutality. These are the best Christian Media can muster in their fight against the exposure of their leader James Lloyd, as a liar, a cheat, and a fraud.

 

It is this type of person, who would make merchandise of Gods people in the last days, of which Peter spoke in his second epistle:

 

2nd Peter 2:12 "But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;" and of whom Jude told us in his epistle:

 

Jude 1:10 "But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves."

 

These who perport themselves to be ministers of righteousness are instead, thugs and bullies. This has been proven to be the case in Rick Walters who was not content to attack me in the most vile way, but also an innocent 8 year old child, in his accusation that this little boy had "...slept in the same bed with Craig Portwood."  This was intended to be a threat that if I did not stop exposing him, Rick Walters would make a telephone call to a Child "Protective Agency" and see to it that this boy would be subjected to a dehumanizing, demoralizing physical exam. This would naturally include the child being asked sexually explicit questions by social workers. Keep in mind, the interragatories would present behaviors that this little boy isn't even be aware of. This attack upon the innocence of this young child was not only condoned by James Lloyd, but he actually laughed when confronted with the vileness of his "Host", whom James himself referred to as a "Jeremiah". As I recall, the real Jeremiah was known by God "from the womb" and had no such wickedness in him.

 

To date, Rick Walters has not repented of this very public sin, nor has he seen the need to do so. To have this level of hatred in their hearts, is a testimony to the murderous spirit which inhabits them. The words of Christ are ignored by these ravening wolves in sheep's clothing, who fully deserve their fate, for their refusal to fear the words of Christ, whom they in their pride and hatred, despise.

 

Matthew 18:6 "But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea."

 

Galatians 5:19 "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20. Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21. Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."

 

 

Commandment VII

 

20:14 "Thou shalt not commit adultery."

 

I have been accused of committing adultery with a sister in Christ. Although we are not having an affair, and NO EVIDENCE EXISTS TO SUPPORT THE ACCUSATION, I have been slandered with that charge by those who claim I have "looked upon another woman with lust". They have used Matthew 5:28 as their proof text, without any proof I have actually done so. One might expect an individual having the past James Lloyd enjoys to accuse others of his own failings, but the hypocrisy he exhibits is astounding. His drunken attempt to forcibly rape Susan Lenox is part of the Public Record!

 

Matthew 5:28 "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart."

 

We do see an incident which suggests James Lloyd has been guilty of this, and has yet to repent of it. This is of course an incident which occurred only once( to my knowledge), and which shocked me at the time. It was also the occasion of severe embarrassment for James, which not wanting to embarrass James, I pretended not to notice at the time. This was during the feud between James and his ex-best friend Steve Quayle, while Susan Lenox was in Chicago visiting her mother after she had surgery on her ears.

 

James had been recording Steve's "Q files" program from the C band satellite nightly, and would have me listen to the tape each morning to find any incriminating statements Steve might have made, which James would eventually use for his "Strange Tale of Steve Quayle" tape set. One morning James was looking for a VCR tape of Steve Quayle's show recorded the previous night, and hit the play button on a tape that was in the VCR player from the night before, to make certain it was the proper tape. It wasn't. It turned out to be a pornographic tape which (at least on the portion I witnessed) exhibited a man performing oral sex, which James had obviously been watching the night before, and which he must have forgotten to put away before retiring for the night. 

 

I have no desire to expose this very personal weakness, but this goes a long way in explaining the tenor of the vicious lies he has propagated against me since my e mail to him in October of 2002 (which will be presented in unabridged, in the future chapter ("The Hidden Things of Dishonesty"). I'm certain if the roles were reversed, James would not have given me the opportunity I gave him long ago, to leave the matter to God, and would have used the incident to embarrass me at the earliest moment. This again, is not perhaps as serious a sin as fraud and theft, but if the pornography was used in any way other than one which involved simply the lusting after the woman in the video (I am thankful at least that it was not a homosexual video), I cannot imagine with any good taste what it could be.

 

This is by the standard of James Lloyd and his associates, ADULTERY. At any rate, it is certainly not a habit becoming a man who claims the moral high ground of a "Prophet of God" with the penchant for self promotion he has shown, nor is it the stuff of decent character befitting a man who viciously attacks others for even the smallest apparent deviation of accepted moral behavior. This is yet another indication of his lack of scriptural direction and provides a further illustration of his unabashed hypocrisy.

 

Commandment VIII

 

20:15 "Thou shalt not steal."

 

We all know stealing is wrong do we not? This Godly principal and admonition against theft is recorded in the Old Testament book of Exodus in the 20th chapter, and constitutes the 8th commandment. Given the straightforward nature of this 8th commandment, it is difficult to interpret it any other way. Even in the 400 year old English language in which the King James Bible was written, there is no room for any other interpretation. Stealing is against God's commands. Period. There is no room for argument. This should be a clear enough concept for even a 5 year old to grasp. However, this concept does seem to be negotiable for James Lloyd and Susan Lenox.

 

One such example follows: At some time in the recent past, James and Susan conspired to stop making payments on a red 1990 Nissan pickup truck. I was told by Susan, that the truck was in her name, and for some reason (which she did not specify), she did not feel compelled to satisfy her part of the financing agreement, and chose to keep the truck anyway. A notice informing her of the intention of the lender to repossess the truck was delivered, and rather than pay the obligation or surrender the vehicle, the decision was made to "rescue" it from seizure. This is theft. To circumvent the usual inspection of title which is routinely done upon registration, James and Susan used the truck by obtaining temporary registration "paper" plates on the vehicle. This was done regularly (for the 3 1/2 years I lived in Jacksonville). Oregon vehicle law (until recently) allowed unlimited "temporary" tags which allowed them to "bypass" the law, because until a vehicle is registered under state law, the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) is not entered into the state computer database.

 

What is most distressing to me, is that I was only informed of the "stolen" status of the truck, after I had driven to Medford (the county seat) to the department of Motor Vehicles to purchase the "paper tags" in my name (because I had been told by Susan that there would be no problem FOR ME, but that she and James had reached "the legal limit" for such tags using their names). I had driven the truck several times around town during 2001-2002 without being informed of the "illegal" status of the vehicle. During one such use of the vehicle, I was stopped by the Jacksonville police because the vehicle had a burned out headlight (which I replaced at my own expense). Had the police decided to run the VIN, I could have been arrested. There is no doubt in my mind now that had I been arrested, no help would be offered me from either James or Susan. This is just one example of the way James Lloyd feels justified in doing as he pleases, without regard for basic moral, ethical, and Biblical principals.

 

Commandment IX

 

20:16 "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor."

 

The false witness from James Lloyd and others at the Christian Media Network, borne against me and the sister who also stands accused of living in adultery will become even more obvious before the conclusion of this report. The proof of the lying ways of Rick Walters, Ralph and Kathy Haaff will be presented in their own chapters. There are yet other examples though, of the lying mouth of James Lloyd and others which can be presented here. One example involves Mary Jo Easton of Michigan, and Greg and Debbie Jones of Indiana. I first met the Jones' (longtime friends of Christian media host Rick Walters) in Madison Indiana in May of 2002, at Clifty Falls State Park. They are sincere, unpretentious Christians who are given to fellowship and hospitality, and I now count them as some of my closest friends. They were part of a group of 12 people who went out to dinner with me Friday evening, on May 31st, 2002, at the Tapatio Mexican Restaurant in Madison. Some weeks later, I had discovered through another believer, that Ralph and Kathy Haaff had been spreading false rumors and bearing false witness against me and the sister (Linda Kristich) who has been likewise accused of committing adultery. 

 

The following afternoon at Clifty Falls State Park, while gathered with some of the saints (and more than a couple of pretenders) Mary Jo was taken aside by Cathy Haaff, and told that the sister in question and I were "involved in a romantic relationship..." and having an affair. The creation of this slanderous gossip has been confirmed by Mary Jo herself, the very person given as the source in earlier CMN articles accusing us of misbehaving that evening. I called James Lloyd (who at that time I had still counted as a brother and a friend) and told him that Kathy Haaff was continuing her well known practice of gossip and slander.

 

James asked me who told me that Kathy was slandering me, and when I told him it was Mary Jo, I was told by James that "Mary Jo is a liar. You would have to be an idiot to believe anything she says..." (The next day, Rick Walters reported on the air that the sister in question and I were "..all over each other in a Chinese restaurant..." , and blamed Mary Jo as the source of this malicious gossip). Apparently, according to James Lloyd, Mary Jo is a liar unless she is the source for gossip Christian Media desires to propagate. (It is also interesting to note, that James Lloyd has likewise published this report, minus Mary Jo's name, claiming as the source for this lie as "at least one person..." saw this supposed carrying on. Such dishonesty is a hallmark of James Lloyd).

 

More than likely, Rick Walters used her name in an attempt to drive a wedge between the only first hand witness of the lying tongue of the wife of Rick Walters' new best friend Ralph Haaff, and myself. Not realizing the depth of the behind the back campaign against me, I told James Lloyd that Greg and Debbie Jones were approached by Mary Jo, and were told the identical thing. James then trashed the Jones' by saying "Greg and Debbie Jones have never been (Christian Media) supporters. They have never bought anything from us and have never given us a dime..." Greg and Debbie Jones actually did purchase some "Storage Seeds" and a "Katydine" water filter from James Lloyd, but he seems to have forgotten that fact.

 

This standard of who is truthful and who is not to be trusted, gauged by who is found in James Lloyd's data base, and how much money they have donated, and how many purchases they have made, should alert anyone to the true nature of the James Lloyd ministry. The fact that this was a lie became evident after I discovered just how many products the Jones' have purchased from James Lloyd. James Lloyd lied with ease as he saw opportunity and benefit to himself. He has since reported, repeated, and fabricated yet more lies, to counter the truth he knows I will tell about his personal life, his lack of moral character, and his "ministry". The proof of the "LLiberally LLying tongue of James LLoyd" will be addresses in a subsequent chapter.

 

To protect and to serve his god of mammon, James Lloyd thinks nothing of lying, and he will not only lie to and about his closest friends and associates should it suit him, but about you and anyone else who gets in his way, should it serve his purpose. The book of Revelation tells us of the character of those who are prevented from entering into God's kingdom:

 

Revelation 22:15 "For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.


Revelation 21:8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."


Commandment X

 

20:17 "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's."


To many unsuspecting listeners of Christian Media Network, James Lloyd and his assorted hosts stand out as examples of what God would have his people be in the last days, uncompromising, faithful to God's word, and unwilling to turn to the right side, nor to the left in pursuit of the truth of God's will. This is however, an illusion. While performing their parts on the center stage of the Network, they claim to stand for truth and righteousness. This however applies as long as they are seen in the bright spotlight of shortwave radio. Off in the shadows there is another reality, one with which I, as a long time "ministry" insider am well acquainted. I will share a few of the more egregious examples of the duplicity inherent in those associated most intimately with Christian Media.

 

Just one weakness James and Susan share which shows their covetous nature, is a love of gambling. This of course is not as serious perhaps, as outright fraud or theft of an automobile, but when one considers the fact that the money they use for this entertainment is collected form the saints who intend (we imagine) that it go to the ministry, ostensibly for use in propagating the gospel of Jesus Christ, there is an air of fraudulent use involved, which any reasonable person who sustains them with donations and purchases has a right to expect to be avoided.

 

The idea of getting something for nothing which drives the spirit of a gambler, is indicative of covetousness. I remember one weekend in 2001, (I do not remember if it was on Sabbath or not) when I was invited to go with them to the Josephine County Fairgrounds in nearby Grant's Pass, to attend a horse race, where we all bet on the horses (yes, I did so also). I do not justify my behavior, although the fact that James and Susan were doing so, lent the activity an atmosphere of legitimacy in my mind. I did later feel I had done wrong, and have not repeated this mistake. I do not know how much money they had lost (or even if they had won), but I do remember that James explained to me how to properly "bet on the ponies". I must have been a bad student, because I lost $20. At the time I justified it because the money I used was a small portion of my wages, but I do now fully realize, regardless of how I come into possession of it, it is all the Lord's money. I do not know how often James and Susan gamble at the racetrack, as there was only one time I was invited to go with them, but this should give you some idea of the gravity of the responsibility of financial stewardship is given at Christian Media.

 

There are many other examples of his hypocritical behavior which will of necessity become part of this report, but another which should be addressed now (because it is so timely) involves the denial of use to the rightful owners of record, of a parcel of land which is adjacent to his own. This denial has been accomplished by the use of a locked gate at the entrance of their property located at 10250 Little Applegate Road, Jacksonville Oregon. The parcel of land is "landlocked" (that is to say, there is no access to it from the road without crossing a small portion of James' lot). A legal precedent of more than 200 years (plus hundreds of years more in English Common Law) has been set, allowing what is known in real estate terms as a "proscriptive easement". This means that the owner of any landlocked tenement, has full legal right to traverse a portion of the land owned by another, for the purpose of entering and leaving their parcel (Ingress and Egress), providing it is done in a way that is least detrimental to the interest and enjoyment of the owner of the subservient tenement (that land with full access).

 

James and Susan are in a battle in the courts at the moment to deny one Mrs. Marshall, the owner of the Dominant Tenement (the landlocked parcel), her God given right to full enjoyment of her property. The plain fact is that James Lloyd is a very selfish individual, who currently enjoys the use of the property, without compensating the owner for it's use. rather than count his blessings of many years free use of the land, he has come to expect it as a right, instead of a blessing.

 

This is an example of the 10th commandment being tramped upon to satisfy James Lloyd's selfish pleasure. Because of this, Mrs. Marshall has been forced to sue in open court because of their covetousness. James feels is right before God.

 

Lloyd further told me (while I yet lived with him), that he intended to STEAL the materials which the workmen will leave on site at the end of each day, should construction of any building be begun on the site. (The 8th commandment again). It is interesting that the commandment concerning the keeping of the Sabbath is given great reverence (at least great lip service) at Christian Media, but the others can be thrown away like so much garbage if it suits their purposes.

 

There is yet another reason why he has resisted Mrs. Marshall's legal attempts to gain access to the property. It is because he fears that once building inspectors arrive on the site, they will notice at least three structures on their property that have been built without permits, and have not been built "up to code". There are also two other buildings which have been built likewise, which are not visible from Mrs. Marshall's property, but which will become an issue once the inspection process begins. And of course, Lloyd can continue to appeal the court's decisions because his many followers keep sending him money and buying his merchandise, which Lloyd uses to pay for high priced lawyers to thwart justice.

 

One may argue that man has a God given right to build without a permit (and I agree to that position) but when one is trusting in God to give them a victory over any government (State, Federal, County. Local), it is absolutely ASININE to tramp on the God given rights of others, and to treat God's people with the contempt James shows them. You cannot lie, cheat and steal, and expect God to bless you! You cannot slander innocent people and make merchandise of the saints, and then expect God to turn a blind eye. You cannot justify violence against your opponents, and the expect God's blessing. You cannot live a lie and expect to be blessed in time of trial. Not by a righteous God.

 

Another interesting twist to this, is that a few months ago, James Lloyd's close associates and network hosts Ralph and Kathy Haaff, felt justified in injecting their opinions into a pending court action, against a believer in Jesus Christ, siding with an avowed enemy of the gospel, and justified it on international shortwave. Should I suppose I am likewise justified in doing the same, by giving Mrs. Marshall certain information she may not have about James Lloyd, which may result in her exercising her God given right? Does that behavior become unbiblical because the shoe is on the other foot? What do you think?

 

Above all else, James Lloyd covets your money, as he covets your worship of him.

 

Those who would call themselves Christians in insincerity, demonstrate a different picture as they condemn and demoralize others for the content of their hearts. Jesus painted a picture of the high minded Pharisees of his day in the parable of the "Good Samaritan", and yet as heartless a picture as Jesus presented of the Pharisees of the day, the current crop has shown that they not only, will not help the man in the ditch, nor is it in their hearts to be content to pass on the other side.

 

By their actions it is clear that they feel it their duty to stomp and kick not only the victim, but any "Good Samaritans" as well. Can anyone, who has read the Bible, truly justify their behavior while they hold others to such high standards?

 

I am jealous for the Lord of Heaven and earth, worship the Lord of Lords and King of Kings for He is worthy of praise and honor and blessings, praise Him, in Heaven above and don't worry about these fear mongers. God loves you very much, and will tell you what to do in a way you will not mistake. 

 

Remember when Jesus returned from the dead, (recorded in Luke 24:13- 32)? Shortly after His burial, Cleopas and his friend were discussing the the death of Jesus, when He joined them in conversation. Not recognizing our Savior until latter, they said in verse 32, "And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?". You will know, when the time comes, He will tell you, because He loves you. 

 

We pray that you will spend your time improving your relationship with the only God that matters-the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and His Son, Jesus Christ. Please also remember Jesus' summation of the ten commandments in Matthew 22:37-40 22:37 Jesus said unto him, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 22:38 This is the first and great commandment. 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."
