THIS YEAR WAS ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT YEARS IN COBU.
1989 seemed to be a significant year for Stewart. The Members of COBU thought they were getting a new teaching, a new direction, and maybe a new,repentant teacher. Stewart had a meeting on Grace in March of 1989 then a few months later he had the 1st John Meeting where he taught about sinless perfection. Below you will find audio and transcripts for the Grace Meeting Part 1 and the 1st John Meeting. Added only recently is the Grace Meeting 2nd recording, and 10 min cuts from meetings during 1989. The cuts belong to longer recordings. I thought some of these clips were enlightening and aside from the members talking about God's grace, Stewart's GRACE revelation early in 1989 seems to have worn off about a week after the Grace meeting. "Missing Grace" that supposedly was one of the most significant revolutionary revelations of the his career as pastor of the Forever Family and the Church of Bible Understanding and yet Stewart never seemed to even recall any of what he said at the Grace Meeting one week, a few weeks, or few months after such an important discovery. This lends credence to the view that the Grace Meeting was nothing more than Stewart throwing a smoke screen to cover his sins against the sisters in Princeton, sins about which Gayle was becoming vocal. I will do my best to transcribe Grace Meeting 2 soon. There are some very telling comments Stewart made and things he failed to say which need to be printed. Below you will find the sisters of Woodruff speaking about being faithful to their husband(Jesus) and clamoring to be tested by the renewed brothers fellowship. They did not seem to be being very gracious to the sisters. You will hear Stewart float the idea of Jesus telling us to commit suicide. Of course Stewart qualifies this disgusting notion, but I ask, why did he even bring this up? In another recording he tells the brothers that they need to face the truth that they will never get it together, never be successful, and they need to get this into their heads.....of course Stewart has always and will always have it together....planes, big houses, married, sisters around him, but the brothers need to get this idea into their heads that they will never succeed. Oh, and here in the 2nd recording of the Grace Meeting... Stewart said...."all this time I never discussed my own sinfulness..." and then he goes on and never discusses it. Listen and wake up. Current Members, you cannot go to Jesus in prayer and walk in the Light before Him when you have covered for Stewart's sins, sins he has not turned away from. Just because Stewart teaches something doesn't automatically mean he is actually practicing what he preaches. If you fail to test him then you are not really following Jesus who is the Truth.
