Matthew Stucky preaches that unsaved people cannot lead someone to Christ

At Verity Baptist Church, Matthew Stucky preached the video shown below, which was titled on Verity’s channel “Unbelievers Can’t win Souls to the Lord (Garrett Kirchway, Judas, False Prophets)”

In the video, he mentions this video, which shows how Garrett Kirchway went and led a woman in a repeat-after-me prayer, and later on others from Faithful Word Baptist Church went to visit her and discovered that she wasn’t actually saved. Less than this really being an indication of shoddy work on Garrett Kirchway’s part, it really shows that the New IFB soulwinning being done by all parties is typically not more than a “how many notches can I get in my belt” numbers game, and produces very little real fruit and a whole lot of false professions.

Stucky then preaches that nobody who is unsaved can lead people to Christ. This means that anyone in Faithful Word Baptist Church or sister churches who thought they were saved, but were led to Christ by Kirchway or others now removed needs to find a real believer quickly and get saved for real this time.

In other words, you not only need to make sure that you actually follow the proper steps to get saved, but also verify the pedigree of the person helping you. Are they saved? Was the person who led them to Christ saved? Because if not, neither are they, and as a rsult you won’t be either.

Needless to say, this isn’t taken too well by the youtube commenters, some of which you can see below.

Also, Steven Anderson will need to revise the false numbers that he said were saved through Faithful Word Baptist Church, because from the comment below, it is an easy estimate that there are probably thousands that were by Kirchway, Domonique Davis, etc.

Stucky is not alone in this teaching. For example, in the above-mentioned video posted by the New IFB channel about Garrett Kirchway’s false convert, the description teaches this same theology:

Post Author: Joshua Lindsey

My name is Joshua Lindsey. I live in Minnesota, and with my wife and children am a faithful member of my local independent Baptist Church. I have taught Sunday School classes and children’s classes, and also had the opportunity to preach at several churches. I teach Bible college classes on the Pentateuch, Atheism and Faith, Chrsitian Denominations, Bible Preservation (A defense of the underlying texts of the KJV), Bible Geography and Customs, Church Graphic Design, and some others. My father is an Independent Baptist Pastor in Wisconsin, and I grew up in a home full of love for the Lord. My parents raised me in the Bible, and are faithful to this day in witnessing and discipling. Although I was constantly immersed in biblical teaching and preaching, I did not personally believe in Jesus as described in John 3:16 until my freshman year in Bible college. In the many years since then, I have grown in grace and the Lord has given me opportunity to serve him in ministry. Among other ministries, I run my church’s print shop and participate in door-to-door evangelism. In doctrine, I affirm the truth that has been passed down from church to church since the time of Christ. I affirm the deity of Christ, his death, burial, and bodily resurrection, the personhood of the Holy Spirit, the Trinity, the virgin birth, the inerrancy and infallibility of the scriptures, the inspiration and preservation of the scriptures, the imminent return of Christ and his future literal millennial reign. I accept the canonicity of the 66 books of scripture, I believe that God commands all men to repent, that Christ draws all men to himself, that any person can believe and be saved. I believe salvation cannot be forfeited or taken away. I believe Christ’s command to go to all the world and preach the Gospel is still applicable to us today. I believe in a future literal judgment seat of Christ and a Great white throne judgment. I believe that no person will enter heaven except through Jesus Christ. I reject all false religions: Islam, Judaism, new Age, etc. I reject the teaching that God elects some men to damnation, giving them no chance to be saved. I reject the idea that God did not preserve his words and that recent manuscript discoveries provide us with a more accurate Bible that was not available to past generations of Christians. I reject the concept of a universal church. I reject the idea that Baptism plays a part in salvation. I believe many things additionally not listed here. My views align with the scripture and with the beliefs that faithful churches have held since the time of Christ, and have held under the title of “Baptist” for many centuries now.
