16 JUN Tyler Doka Continues to Preach a Flat Earth Edit June 2018: Doka is trying to rebrand to escape his flat-earth past. He renamed his church to “Pillar of Truth Christian Church” and deleted all the controversial videos on his channel. As of now, his flat earth sermon can still be found here: Link Since the previous post on this topic, Tyler Doka has continued to preach that the earth is flat. He has posted on his YouTube Channel three “Flat Earth Moments” videos: Flat Earth Moment #1 The Circle of the Earth Flat Earth Moment #2 Multiple Worlds Flat Earth Moment #3 The Sky Stone Debunked He has also preached on the bottomless pit, flat earth hell. He is now embarking on a 22-part Revelation series from a flat earth perspective and, the latest message posted to his Youtube Page is titled “Revelation 2 | Flat Earth End Times Prophecy (KJV Baptist Bible Preaching)”. He begins his message by stating that though Revelation 2 doesn’t cover the flat earth, it is still flat earth preaching. (In other words, his whole church and ministry is now a flat earth centric ministry, no matter the subject) He also has changed the image behind him to what he calls the “Flat Earth Horizon.” (shown below) The rest of the New IFB has unanimously denounced Tyler Doka. Bruce Mejia, pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church in El Monte, California posted the video “Tyler Doka used the NEW IFB Platform to Promote his STUPID doctrine“, where he calls it “stupid heresy” and calls Tyler Doka “a snake” and “a hypocrite.” Michael Johnson, pastor of Temple Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida posted the video “Flat-Earther Tyler Doka Attacks The New IFB! Pastor Johnson Responds” where he calls Doka’s preaching “absolutely ridiculous” and that Doka has an “arrogant attitude.” Jason Robinson, pastor of Mountain Baptist Church in Fairmont, West Virginina posted the video “The Flat Earth from an Engineering Perspective“, where he does a good job debunking dome of Doka’s arguments. The description of a clip of Anderson’s anti-flat earth sermon on The New IFB channel calls out Doka as having “crept in unawares” (see below) Despite the negative publicity or perhaps in part because of it, Doka continues to get the views on his original sermon, plus reposts of it on other flat-earth channels and also in other videos he is featuring in. (see below) As of today, Doka and Great Harvest Baptist Church are still listed in the New IFB church directory at https://www.thenewifb.com/church-directory. 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.
