Gleb Glebov of Blessed Hope Baptist Church Threatens Legal Action against

I received this laughable email from Gleb Glebov today. To think that he can stand behind a pulpit one day, and say things like this the next!

From: Gleb Glebov <>
Subject: Notice Before Legal Action

Message Body:
I’ve been patient with you and asked you kindly to remove my private information and sermons from your website and YouTube channel. You have stolen my recorded sermons, photographs, and private information and then uploaded this data to your channel and website without my permission, so you’re a thief. Perhaps you should learn the difference between Standard YouTube Licence and Creative Commons before prating against me with malicious words and accusing me of immorality. You don’t know me or anything about my beliefs, yet you slander me and spread lies with gossip on your website. Please remove all the content associated with me from your website or I will sue you for libel. All articles that include my name, my photographs, the name of my church, locations, etc. must be taken down or I will  personally sue you for libel. This will cost you a lot of money, so I once again ask you kindly to remove all the articles about me and my church. Besides, you clearly wanted to damage my reputation, and in Canada it would be impossible for you to defend yourself due to the nature of our libel law. Please note that I have saved copies of your articles about me and can sue you even after you remove them. If I see any mention of me or my church on your website in the future, I will sue you for libel without writing another email.

Of course, nothing we have said about Gleb is even near libelous, nor have we ever violated copyright with anything we have posted. He also seems to have a shaky understanding of both Canadian and American law, at best.

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.

These idiots don’t know the first thing “copyrights”, nor libel law. They do nothing but push idle threats to those who expose their doctrine.

Keep up the good work……
