Letter To District Presbytery Dated: February 4, 2005
Dear Brother Presbyter,
Greetings in Christ.Ã‚ Since I have had no direct communication with the presbytery since the fateful meeting on December 15, 2004 this letter is probably long overdue. It is intended to be very honest and forthright, so my statements will be very straightforward without apology. It will also provide an accurate written record of at least some events from December 15th until now. What I have to say will, I hope, surprise and perhaps shock some of you as you may not have heard some of the things I will mention. However, you need to know my heart which has never been fully expressed.

Slide of Laodicea
When the Muslim King of Jordan rose to give the benediction at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington on February 2, thousands of evangelical Christians rose with him to pray as he petitionedÃ‚ Allah for his blessings on the assembled crowd. When the breakfast was opened in prayer by an Orthodox Jew who has rejected Jesus Christ as the Messiah, the crowd of evangelicals bowed duly and prayed to a God that did not include their Saviour. The name of Jesus Christ was, in fact, barely mentioned at the event, according to the Washington Times. Evangelical leaders of the annual breakfast had been criticized for having too much of Jesus at past events. They made up for it this year by all but ignoring Jesus Christ and giving the benediction prayer to a Muslim for the first time.

One of the real hot topics among evangelicals today is the James Dobson led movement calling for Christians to remove their children from the government's humanist school system.
Neither CNN cable news or Veri-chip are strangers to controversy. Saudi led Islamic investment in CNN's parent company TIME WARNER AOL has led to speculation that such influence accounts for the often anti-American, anti-Israel and pro Moslem bias at CNN.
Download or read online Waleed Nassar's review of Robery Morey's book.
Dr. Robert Morey of the "Faith Defenders" organization in California has been proven "prima faci" by hard documentation to have lied in his slanderous allegation that Jacob Prasch "does not believe in Providence" , while the very document Morey twists out of context emphatically affirms Jacob"s belief in providence. Morey"s additional faulty assertions about the meaning of Ecclesiates 9:11 were concocted on the basis of a bogus appeal to the original languages. But as is posted on the Moriel website, two distinguished Evangelical Ivy League academics in Greek and Hebrew (Dr. Siam Bhayro,Professor Athanassios Chliaris) have verified Jacob"s interpretation of the original Greek and Hebrew meanings and grammar.
Having been publicly caught in one lie that I do not believe in providence, when page 74/75 plainly states I certainly do, Robert Morey now resorts to another lie. He never challenged me to debate "soul sleep" (which my tapes in the public domain for 3 years prove I not only do not believe and never have, but have opposed). His email proves that he in fact challenged me to debate "annihilationism", which my tapes also prove I have never believed but have opposed. Now he has changed his story again. It is easy to challenge someone to debate something they do not believe because it is impossible for the debate to happen!

Gujranwala. The Board of Directors of FTS Gujranwala in a meeting today at New campus of FTS at Sialkot Road , decided to withdraw the Doctor of Divinity Degree to Dr. Robert Morey in August 1996. Dr. Robert a Morey is leading a ministry named 'Defender of Faith' at Orange in California State, USA and FTS degree was awarded to him in USA instead of FTS convocation at Gujranwala. The Board of Directors retreated that any degree awarded on behalf of FTS abroad without presence of Chancellor, Principal or any Member of Board of Directors of FTS can not be considered valid. The meeting further clarified that degrees awarded abroad can be called for evaluation and confirmation but same was denied by Dr. Robert Morey on frequent requests made by the FTS.
