The Gospel Light and Truth Crusade is a mission dedicated to proclaiming the truth of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world. It was founded in 2013 by Christian evangelist and writer, Tony Keeton, who goes by the pen name The Still Man.
The primary purpose of this ministry is to “reform the Reformation” by purging the Roman Catholic influence from the Protestant faith. This we do by following the Apostle Paul’s admonition in Titus 1:9 to “hold fast to the faithful Word” and exhorting the body of Christ to seek a return to “the faith that was once delivered unto the saints.” Our secondary mission is to evangelize Roman Catholics, for whom we have a special burden, by showing them in the Word of Truth that Roman Catholicism, with its emphasis on tradition and man-made decrees, is not biblical, and, thus, not Christianity.
The ministry’s name is loosely based on an organization founded by Christian evangelist and author, Monica Farrell. A converted Roman Catholic, Ms. Farrell well understood the spiritual darkness in which Roman Catholics live, and the false doctrines and man-made traditions of Rome that corrupt the simple faith in the work of Jesus, and keep the Roman Catholic imprisoned in fear and ignorance. Her burden for lost Roman Catholics led Ms. Farrell and like-minded Christians to found The Light and Truth Gospel Crusade in Dublin, Ireland, a “mission for the conversion of Roman Catholics and the awakening of Protestants.”
Evangelist Keeton read two books written by Ms. Farrell that greatly affected his understanding of the world and changed the direction and purpose of his ministry. The first was Ravening Wolves, a book about the work of Roman Catholic Action and the USTACHI in Yugoslavia during World War II, and their bloody campaign to exterminate the Orthodox Serb population in the Independent State of Croatia. The second was From Rome to Christ, which is the personal testimony of Monica Farrell. Ravening Wolves revealed a side of the Roman Catholic institution that is more sinister and far bloodier than that which is commonly found in history books and portrayed in the media. Ms. Farrell’s personal testimony in From Rome To Christ revealed the extent to which the Roman Catholic has been deceived by “another Jesus, another spirit, and another gospel.” This book helped Keeton understand and appreciate the deep spiritual depravity, fear, lack of joy, and sense of hopelessness that characterizes the life of the average Roman Catholic.
Keeton was already aware of the true nature of Rome from the work of publisher Jack Chick and the testimonies of former Jesuit priest, Dr. Alberto Rivera, told in the Chick Crusader series of comic tracts, and of former Roman Catholic priest, Charles Chiniquy, as told in the book, Fifty Years in the Church of Rome. Keeton also had personal experience with the tactics of the Roman Catholic church, having been persecuted by them in Munich, Germany, where he resided for twenty years, and in his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, in response to his efforts to evangelize Roman Catholics and Muslims. The information provided by Ms. Farrell deepened Keeton’s understanding of the determination of the Rome to destroy the Christian Church and the Protestant Reformation., Keeton determined in his heart to do his part to bring Roman Catholics to a knowledge of the truth, awaken the Christian Church to the danger that is Rome, and help purge the romish influence from the Protestant faith.
Keeton’s research revealed that the moral decay of the United States through the Hollywood motion picture and entertainment industry, the media, and the educational establishment as well as the undermining of the United States Constitution, was deliberately caused by the Roman Catholic church, and is part of its plan to take over the government of the United States and supplant it with a government completely run by Roman Catholics for Roman Catholics. In this “occult theocracy,” the worship of the Lord Jesus Christ will be outlawed by penalty of death, as the United States and the world will be forced to worship the Antichrist and his idol, the Roman Catholic Virgin Mary. This will signal the destruction of Protestant Christianity: a long-standing goal of the Roman Catholic church.
Moreover, the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, followed by the election of the Jesuit Pope Francis, signaled that the Great Tribulation is very near: for both events are the fulfillment of Revelation Chapter 13 concerning the Antichrist and the False Prophet, which are Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis, respectively. One purpose of this ministry is to warn the Body of Christ of the impending danger of the new Roman Catholic Inquisition.
Lastly, as Jesus said that in the last days, deception would be so pervasive that it would almost fool the elect of God, this ministry also exists to discern truth from error. This we do by “rightly dividing the Word of Truth,” the Holy Bible. We expose the false teachers and their false teachings by comparing spiritual things with spiritual things and revealing those teachings that do not line up with Scripture.
The Gospel Light and Truth Crusade has several media outlets by which we get the truth out. The Still Man blog is our first ministry effort. It has been a very effective force for Truth and continues to help many to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as well as to edify, educate, and strengthen the Body of Christ.
We originally began our podcast, The Gospel Light and Truth Hour (formerly These Last Days) for the benefit of the visually impaired and as an option for those who don’t have the time to sit in front of a computer screen to read our articles. But it has turned out to be an excellent companion to the blog, providing a means for us to include information that we deem important, but that would make the blog articles prohibitively long.
The Fifth Seal is a website where we hope to eventually report regularly on Christian persecution worldwide. Our reason for doing this was to encourage Christians to pray for the persecuted church and to alert the Body of Christ to what will soon happen to Christians everywhere. The website exists, but it has not been updated in over a year, because we just have not had the time to maintain it. We are considering soliciting input from our readers to keep the blog going.
Lastly, the The Still Man maintains a YouTube channel by the same name, where we post videos that supplement the web articles and video versions of some of our most important teachings.
There exists an extreme dearth of the pure, unadulterated Word of the Living God in the earth. Many are in danger of going to Hell never having heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
This ministry exists to spread that Gospel.
Moreover, people are tired of being lied to and deceived. They are tired of being fed information disguised as knowledge. They want to know the truth.
This ministry exists to tell the Truth.
Christians are hurting just as much as those in the world, because they have unwittingly become unequally yoked with unbelievers, and have become partakers of the world. Instead of preaching separation and sanctification, many pastors are preaching oneness with the world, and are telling their congregations that, in order to win the lost, churches need to cater to the passions and fashions of this present evil world. This has resulted in Christians that are hardly discernible from the unsaved.
This ministry exists to preach sanctification.
Many of these same pastors preach heresy from the pulpit. They have not the truth because they follow not the Truth, the Lord Jesus Christ, but Satan, who is the “Father of lies.” Through their lies, they have corrupted the truth and have perverted the simplicity that is in Christ.
This ministry exists to reveal doctrinal errors and, when appropriate, the false prophets who spread these doctrines.
Through “twilight language,” obfuscation, and outright lies, the media often warp and twist the truth in order to hide the truth. Satan’s ministers, commonly called celebrities, are also busy influencing us through their lifestyles and beliefs. Satan’s uses the media and its deceitful workers to spread his gospel, which gospel is not the Gospel of Christ, and to fulfill his agenda, which is to send as many souls to Hell as he can.
This ministry exists to expose the machinations of the media and of its deceitful workers that they may be manifest to all men.
The Roman Catholic Charismatic has contributed to the apostasy we see in the 21st Century Church. Many churches celebrate Roman Catholic holidays like Lent, and Roman Catholic priests are invited to preach from Protestant pulpits. The Holy Bible teaches that friendship with the world is enmity with God. So, because many churches are unequally yoked with Rome, God has separated Himself from them, and the Holy Spirit is not present during their services. This has led to a situation similar to when Israel turned its back on God, as the Christian church no longer worships the Lord Jesus in the way He wants.
This ministry exists to expose the true nature of Roman Catholicism, to evangelize Roman Catholics, and to wake up the Christian Church and exhort her to seek a return to the faith “that was once delivered unto the saints.”
By providing sound Bible doctrine and sound Bible teaching, we help Christians to make good sound biblical decisions for themselves and their families, and to glorify the name of Jesus. In so doing, we strive to equip the true servants of Christ Jesus to have a joyous and victorious Christian walk and to wage an effective warfare.
The Gospel Light and Truth Crusade is in no way affiliated with Monica Farrell, her organization, estate, or any other organization or ministry, other than the Body of Christ, that Ms. Farrell may have founded, belonged to, or may have been in any way affiliated with. We endeavor merely to carry on the spirit of Ms. Farrell’s work, which is in keeping with the Great Commission, and we credit her as the inspiration for our organization’s name and partial mission focus.
As Jesus endorsed the ministry of John the Baptist by saying, “There is no prophet born of a woman greater than John the Baptist,” so do we hope to ensure that through our name and by our efforts, the vital work and ministry of Monica Farrell and her burden for her beloved Roman Catholics should never be forgotten.
May the mercy, grace, and peace of God though our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
The Still Man
