The Richest Caveman - The Doug Batchelor Story

[Quoted From: ]

Pastor Doug Batchelor

As a teenager, Doug Batchelor had everything money could buy—everything but happiness. His search led him to drugs, fights, and suicidal fantasies, but he still was convinced that life held no purpose. Before his search ended, a cave in the hills above Palm Springs became his home, and he eventually had to scavenge for food in garbage bins.

The happiness Doug wanted eluded him until the day he began reading the dust-covered Bible a fellow "searcher" had left in his cave. What happened next can only be described as a miracle!

His down-to-earth approach to living the Christian life stems from his own experiences. Pastor Doug is now President and Speaker for Amazing Facts Ministries, an international evangelistic organization incorporated as a denominational television ministry within the North American Division territory.

He is an energetic man of vision and deep spirituality with an unusual ability to communicate not only to church oriented people, but also to the millions of secular-minded people of today.

He is the author of five books and has a wife, Karen, and five children. View Doug Batchelor's testimony! "The Richest Caveman: The Doug Batchelor Story"

Amazing what The Lord can do in such a miserable an sinful life 

Author EvangelistEvan (8 months)
This is the key to it all.... When I was an SDA CULT member, I was asking
hundreds and hundreds of SDA CULT members I met during my time as an SDA
CULT member, and my time preaching in the SDA CULT, one question:

Are you sure you are going to heaven?

Their answers would prove to me that there is a general consensus and
culture within the SDA CULT to believe that salvation is based on HUMAN
EFFORT and the LAW, because 99% of SDA CULT members I would ask that
question, would shrug their shoulders, tell me they aren't ready yet and
working on it, and make it clear to me that they believe they are not saved
"yet" until they can become better and stop sinning, because 99% of SDA
CULT members do not believe a SINNER who continues to break the Law and 10
Commandments of God that they can be saved RIGHT NOW and TODAY!

If SDA CULT members were to renounce and burn all Ellen's 130 books, and
only start reading the 66 books of Bible, then they would realise and
understand that a SINNER can be saved RIGHT NOW and TODAY!

But as I said, questions like these makes it clear how much influence EGW
rubbish books have made to the SDA CULT, because their answer to questions
such as the following exposes their trust in Ellen and her filthy gospel:

Can you avoid the mark of the beast, inherit the right to enter the gates
of heaven, be accepted by God and saved if you continue sinning, in other
words, continue being a sinner who breaks God's law and 10 Commandments?

Their answer will PROVE beyond ANY DOUBT that they have rejected the gospel
taught in Holy Scripture, and instead trusted in Ellen's demonic gospel
based on human effort!

Attention: EvangelistEvan:

Why are you religiously coming back to this video or videos? What are you
accomplishing by returning to simply call us a cult and whatnot? Who's work
are you doing? Can you see yourself in the mirror? What do you believe?
What's your religion?

Author EvangelistEvan (11 months)

Approach your SDA CULT Pastor and the SDA CULT General Conference and tell
them that you believe that Sunday Keeping Christians who don't know better
and who continue to attend Church on Sundays and NOT the Sabbath, EVEN
after the "Sunday Laws" are enforced, will still NOT get the "Sunday Laws"
Mark of the Beast and will still enter the gates of heaven and be saved and
accepted by God and then come back here and tell me what your SDA CULT
Pastor and SDA CULT GC says:)

Author Constance Collier (1 year)
Wow, what a life.

Author EvangelistEvan (1 year)


I will prove EGW/SDA CULT really teaches a false gospel of salvation based
on WORKS, by asking you this:

1. According to EGW, what must a Christian do to be saved, accepted by God
and avoid the coming "Sunday Laws" Mark of the Beast?

2. Can a Christian who has faith in Jesus be saved if they attend Church
Service on Sundays and not Sabbath, according to EGW?

Ask your SDA Pastor and theological professors at SDA university and you
will be SHOCKED by their answers!

Author Betty Callahan (1 year)

Author EvangelistEvan (1 year)
SDA CULT members will sidestep this following question, and/or insult you
when you ask it, run and hide, tremble etc, because they know if they
answer truthfully, their false legalistic gospel is exposed... their answer
contradicts the Bible, and their answer exposes their trust in themselves
and the Law and the Sabbath to save them...they do NOT completely 100%
trust in Jesus to save them, and their answer proves it, IF you are lucky
enough to get them to answer which SDA CULT members usually refuse to do:

According to Ellen G White and the SDA CULT, what must I DO to avoid
getting the "Sunday Laws" Mark of the Beast, to avoid getting the final
plagues, and to be accepted by God and to inherit eternal life in heaven
and to be saved?

@BibleJesusChristian No cult -- as proven by my former Baptist Minister
husband - for whom has witnessed first hand, due to his own questioning
from what he was "taught" at Temple... that SDA were a cult. He has found
the direct opposite. The Waco bunch were a cult... and believed opposite of
most of our teachings... with additional false teachings. 2nd - In no way
would I judge you... but your own words of misinformation & false
accusations you seem to enjoy spreading. Why are you so angry?

Author Michael Godfrey (3 years)
@imax1971 Sorry, I forgot to address that part. All I'm going to say is
that you should judge someone based on the bible not based on what other
people have said about them. People can be biased, but the bible is never
biased. I rarely use The Clear Word. It's supposed to be used as a
devotional bible; we never use it in church - we use the NKJV or NIV
usually. Do you have a problem with using the living/message bible etc.? We
never use TCW as a substitute to the other versions.

@imax1971 This was done in the middle or his prophecy series. He had an
audience way before he said all of that stuff. I don't find it that hard to
believe his story. You'd only have trouble believing it if you had an
initial bias towards the man or his denomination.

@sciencevsreligion01 I am so sorry to hear that - not all people who claim
to be in the body of Christ are of Christ. I hope you won't stereotype all
Seventh-day Adventists that way. Please don't allow your mind to be filled
with bitterness towards anyone who calls themself an Adventist - we are all
on a journey through life, and all of us make mistakes. I am sorry that you
and your family have had such un-Christlike treatment.

To answer your question further i believe Christian who are sincere and
worship on Sunday may be saved if they don't know better. But I'd rather be
on the safe side and worship on Saturday cause it is truly the Lord's day.
Faith and Grace don't erase the Law. If your speeding on a highway and a
cop stops you but doesnt give you a ticket that's what grace is like. But
it doesn't mean the law has changed and you can keep going 90 miles an

Do you have to build this "path/relationship" or did Jesus already build
it?...the faith is what produces the works, not vice versa! Holy Spirit is
who produces the "work/s"...the works comes only by resting, never ever by
striving :)

Author Graukna86 (4 years)
My questions First did god in Genesis not sanctify and hallow the Sabbath ,
Second through out the entire bible that Sabbath has been kept not just by
the jews but by gentiles as well , and third IF the sabbath was given only
to the jews then I am still obeying the Sabbath because we are told that
through baptism and accepting christ we are graphted into the vine of
spiritual Israel , simply because we believe what the jews did not accept ,
which was Jesus Christ.

Author Serafinos (3 years)
@FatTonyAU Please share a reference book/page/paragraph which you find EGW
teaching that a "person must become sinless before the can invite Jesus
into their hearts." Considering the fact -- she fully teaches, as scripture
teaches... come as you are... sinful, broken & down trodden. She never
wrote nor believed those attending church on Sundays are lost. Perhaps
actually reading her material would help. Praying for your anger.

Also, IMAX, she clearly states that she did not quote the original author
for the sole reason that she wanted the reader to stay focused on the
content and not the author. Let me, also, draw your attention to the fact
that Christ, when preaching, quoted many an Old Testament writer without
giving credit to the author. Does this make Him a plagarist, too? Not at

@FatTonyAU Stop going on about this 'false doctrine' SDAs have. Every SDA
that has replied has stated that it isn't true and that they've never met
anyone who has said that their 'sabbath works' will save them. It's not
even in the SDA churches official beliefs. It's not biblical and there's no
use going on about it. Can we just stick to what each of us believe instead
of attacking another's beliefs? We will all be saved by grace. That is the
most important part and we both agree on that.

@AspiringPotato My theory on cavemen is that they were mentally ill or
deformed and cast out by normal society or a primitive tribe of people who
lived among themselves and became extinct like the Mayans. How often over
the past 2 centuries have explorers and scientist ran into strange savage
tribes attempting to communicate with and/and or civilize them. I believe
that's all cavemen were.

To take the cross from the Christian is like blotting the sun out of the

over u all ur days. Long as u keep ur eye on Him u can not be lost. He died
for me, He represented for me. I am accepted in the beloved by the grace of
God. For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son By the
merits of Christ we are looked upon. If we hold to him by faith we are held
as spotless as His Son

If it has anything to do with sunday, you can sure bet that part of the law
will be to worship the false christ in his own name. The day of sunday in
and of itself is not enough and will not cause someone to receive the mark
of the beast. It does not denote rejection of Jesus, for if it did than
anyone, even the disciples by gathering on the first day, and every other
day of the week, would have spent more time rejecting him than accepting

@FatTonyAU i cant give you a direct answer to an indirect question. if the
bible tell us to worship God on Sabbaths, and no where in the bible does it
say to keep sunday. then i would want to obey my Lord Jesus and worship Him
on the day that he has made for me to worship Him. so your saying, if one
kept the 4th commandment and then decided to permenantley break it would
they be saved? 1John2:4He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his
commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him

be saved without obeying God? Obeying God included keeping the Sabbath.

@Jesus4Truth So let us turn the table here...? Do you, "Jesus4Truth", keep
the Perfect Law of God? Yes or No? If no, then you too are a law breaker.
You can not keep only nine of the Law and choose to not keep one. The Law
was in effect at creation. "This is the message you heard from the
beginning: We should love one another. Do not be like cain, who belonged to
the evil one and murdered his brother, and why did he murder him? Becuase
his own actions were evil..." 1 John 3:11

@imax1971 The Clear Word isn't the SDA Bible. Sure it was written by an

paraphrased version of the bible like the Living Bible or the Message

@BibleJesusChristian You are aware that there have been Sunday Laws in many
states and countries for decades, but they have not been enforced, But
recently there have been moves in Europe to mandate Sunday as an official
worship day with no work or shopping. Also many right wing christian groups
in America are for mandating Sunday Law. This is all fact not fiction,not
1984,or EGW gobbly gook as you might think. I've seen it on PBS news and
read articles online. Our freedoms are slowly eroding.

all my Commandments, I am still gonna save you." And I have never seen any
of your comments include any Bible verses. Read Exodus 20, and after this,
Matthew 5:17-20. Hope this helps!
