Is It Possible For It To Exist In The Church?
by Tony Alamo
There is widespread adultery in churches today. There has been at least four cases of adultery in my own church recently. Sin that is as hardcore as adultery, murder, or abortion, committed by a Christian (after they have been saved), is unforgivable, according to the way I read the Scriptures.1 But if they committed these sins ignorantly, they can possibly repent if they go and sin no more; but this is only if they hadn’t studied the Bible and did not know the complete truth.2
In Matthew 5:17-20, JESUS said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am NOT come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till Heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled [this means until Judgment Day]. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.” The Pharisees, as far as we know, never committed adultery.
Deuteronomy 5:17-18 states, “Thou shalt not murder. Neither shalt thou commit adultery.” In Matthew 5:27-28, JESUS said, “Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” The Old Testament Law of Moses condemned the deed of adultery,3 but in the New Testament, JESUS condemns both the deed and the thought of adultery.4 So, because now we have the SPIRIT of GOD living in us which gives us the power to keep the law, the New Testament law becomes more strict. The New Testament law now condemns both the deed and the thought of adultery (Matthew 5:27-28).
I don’t want to be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven; I want to be called great. Therefore, I will not tolerate sin in the church which CHRIST gave to me to pastor. One rotten apple will spoil the entire barrel of apples (Galatians 5:9).
Let me now do and say what the Apostle Paul does and says in 1 Corinthians 5:1-7: “It is reported commonly that there is fornication [adultery] among you [Christians], and such fornication [adultery] as is not so much as named among the Gentiles [the unsaved], that one should have his father’s wife [not his mother, but another of his father’s wives]. And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed. In the name of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the LORD JESUS. Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven [sin] leaveneth [poisons] the whole lump [the whole body and soul]? Purge [clean] out therefore the old leaven [this means clean out every sin and sinner that professes Christianity], that ye may be a new lump [that you may be a new body of Christians, holy people, without sin], as ye are unleavened [without sin]. For even CHRIST our PASSOVER is sacrificed for us.” This is GOD who came to us in the flesh, was sinless, and shed HIS genuine, sinless, human blood, which is the only detergent strong enough to wash away all of our filthy sins.5 Once we are washed from our sins, and filled with the SPIRIT, we are enabled to do the work of GOD every day without sinning.6
Zechariah 4:6 states the commandments can easily be kept: “Not by might, nor by power, but by MY SPIRIT, saith the LORD of HOSTS.” All of GOD’S testimonials (such as creation) have been done by HIS SPIRIT. There is no way that anything can be done by GOD but by HIS SPIRIT.
The adulterous woman that the scribes and Pharisees brought to JESUS, to see what HE would do, was not a Christian. She was an unsaved sinner. JESUS came into the world to save sinners like her, so HE didn’t condemn her, but told her to go and sin no more (John 8:11).
JESUS said to another in John 5:14, “Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.” What would be the “worse thing” to come to a person if they sin after they have become a believer? Hebrews 10:26 states, “For if we sin willfully after that we have [been washed from our sins in the blood of JESUS] received the knowledge of the truth [are no longer ignorant], there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins.”7
Romans 6:1-3 states, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace [GOD’S power] may abound? GOD forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into JESUS CHRIST were baptized into HIS death?” Dead people never sin. They are not able to do anything but by the HOLY SPIRIT. Verse 5 states, “For if we have been planted together in the likeness of HIS death, we shall be also in the likeness of HIS resurrection.”
First John 5:16-17 states, “If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and HE shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it. All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death [this is the sin of ignorance].” This kind of sin which is unto death is blasphemy of the HOLY SPIRIT, when done by a former Christian. I believe this includes Christian adultery, Christian murder, Christians falling away from GOD to join the Antichrist spirit, and Christians falling away from GOD to join any government other than the government of GOD.
I will give you a few examples of people who have fallen away, committed adultery in my church, and are begging me to go against the WORD of GOD to allow them to continue in the church.
We are a live-in church. I told a woman with a husband and six children, who recently committed adultery with a young man in my church, that she could no longer be a part of the church. These are her words attempting to talk me into letting her stay in the church:
She says that no one was there for her. Because she has led support groups, gone to nursing homes, and gone out and distributed literature, is there any possibility she may have sown enough mercy to reap back just enough mercy that she can make it, if she crawls on her face for the rest of her life? (Young lady, CHRIST with the FATHER by the SPIRIT is in every Christian. We are never alone, and HE is always there for us. Even though I am in prison on false charges, CHRIST is with me, and I was able to minister to you and others. On top of this, you have your Bible, the WORD of GOD, which is the HOLY SPIRIT.) She says she will never give place to the devil again. “I will spend the rest of my life on my face before GOD. Please, Pastor Tony, I know you hear from GOD. I need to know. Is there any possibility of me finding even just a thread of hope to climb with?”
Three months later, this same woman was seen walking with her arms around another man at a store in Fort Smith, Arkansas!
The Bible says to obey those that have the rule over you. Hebrews 13:17 states, “Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.”
The LORD told me to tell everyone in the churches to separate boys from girls, and men from women. GOD told me to tell everyone in the churches to stay away from televisions, computers, video games, and all other carnal devices. I also told them to stay completely away from the opposite sex. I pointed out to her that her husband said she had been playing secular music and acting like a teenager, dancing, etc. She was flirting with a young man on the phone, picked him up at the brothers’ dormitory, and took him to a hotel room where they had sex.
Years ago, my wife Susie allowed an adulterer and adulteress back in the church after I put them out, and it never worked out. I was disappointed that Susie did that, and they were eventually put out of the church again.
Another woman in the church committed adultery. She says she was full of bitterness and stayed in the church because she feared GOD would do something to her if she took her little girl with her. She now states that she was so deceived by Satan. She states she knows how horrible and disgusting she is to do such a horrible thing, and says that she has been led astray by Satan. She says she has been fasting, praying, and begging for GOD’S forgiveness and that while crying out to GOD, HE pulled the prayer right out of her soul. Her body was tingling from GOD’S beautiful SPIRIT touching down on her. She says she felt HIS SPIRIT for the first time in years. She says she knows she was weakened, disgusting, and vile, but she knows she has received forgiveness from GOD, and she feels HIS peace in her now.
This woman has a highly intelligent and beautiful daughter that became fourteen years old in June 2015. She told me that she didn’t believe her mother was saved, and she has been praying for her mother to become saved for years. If this woman was full of bitterness, she never told me, and I can’t see why she would be bitter about anything. I didn’t make the commandments. GOD made them, and I have to obey them like everyone else. GOD is the judge and the commander. This woman cannot attend the church unless GOD tells me otherwise. She has been in the church for many years, and she knows what the Bible says. I don’t believe that she has an excuse, and if she did, the LORD would tell me.
The young man that both of these women committed adultery with has no children. He tells about the same story, and he cannot attend the church, either. Hopefully they will get to GOD and stay there if they can.
Ezekiel 18:20a states, “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” First John 3:8a states, “He that committeth sin is of the devil.”
The whole world sins and is horribly corrupt. I, as a witness of the LORD, stand before the god of this earth, which is the devil, and proclaim the WORD of the LORD.8 “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of CHRIST: for it is the power of GOD unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek” (Romans 1:16).
Do you believe that you can commit adultery and go to Heaven? Do you believe that you can commit adultery and stay out of Hell and the Lake of Fire? If you believe that, you will be in Hell and the Lake of Fire if you don’t repent. The church of GOD is a mysterious church (Ephesians 5:28-32). All members are members of the body of CHRIST by the HOLY SPIRIT.
The world media and false churches hate the message of the Gospel of the LORD JESUS CHRIST (2 Timothy 4:3-4). This is because they don’t like to be told what to do and what not to do, and they also love to sin. They also don’t like to hear of themselves having to spend eternity screaming in the Lake of Fire, without ever having relief (Revelation 20:11-15). They will be very sorry on Judgment Day. Anyone that preaches the truth like I do knows the media and the government will try to make me look like a combination of Jim Jones, Jim Baker, Jimmy Swaggart, and Hitler, when in reality, I just preach the truth.
If you believe the Bible, which I have quoted in this tract, and if you repent of your sins, then live by the commandments and the SPIRIT so that you can hear JESUS on Judgment Day say to you, “Come in to everlasting happiness, peace, and joy, MY good and faithful servant.” If this is what you want for you, for your family, and for your friends, say this prayer:
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
After salvation, JESUS said to be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.12 Then study the King James Version Bible, and, for your benefit and the benefit of others, do what it says.13
CHRIST and GOD the FATHER now live in you through the HOLY SPIRIT. There is a way you can receive a fuller portion of the divine nature of GOD in you. The more the divine nature of GOD lives in you, the more you will be able to stand against the temptations that have so easily moved so many millions of Christians away from salvation. Pray for the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT. For instructions on how to receive the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT and to receive more of GOD’S holy nature, ask for our literature or call. For without holiness, no man shall see GOD (Hebrews 12:14).

If you want the world saved, as JESUS commands, then don’t rob GOD of HIS tithes and offerings. GOD said, “Will a man rob GOD? Yet ye have robbed ME. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed THEE? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed ME, even this whole nation [and this whole world]. Bring ye all the tithes [a ‘tithe’ is 10% of your gross income] into the storehouse, that there may be meat [Spiritual food] in MINE house [souls saved], and prove ME now herewith, saith the LORD of HOSTS, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of HOSTS. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Malachi 3:8-12).
