All that Dave did on radio and literature - lajla sorensen - chino, calilfornia -

I became born-again in the California Institute for Women in 1999. The very words that came out of Dave’s mouth on the radio or in and through his books penetrated my heart and nourished the planted seed of the word. I grew and grace over flowed that my sister and deceased younger brother came to the water that gives utter freedom from guilt, pain, and fear and most important, eternal life. THANK YOU DAVE, MAY THE LORD BLESS YOUR ENTIRE HOUSEHOLD, Amen…

Our brother in Christ - phil dibenedetto - australia -

A beautiful soldier for Jesus I'll miss him for now but in the kingdom we will catch up. Jesus would say be of good cheer your brother is with me

"Modern hero of the faith." - Paul Howell - Sydney, Australia -

Brother Dave entered my life by way of my purchasing a copy of "Global Peace and the Rise of Antichrist" to read as I was travelling on a back-packing holiday around the world in 1995. I had been a Christian for 12 years - 2 as a Catholic, then the next 10 as a Penticostal. Having grown up Catholic, this book's revelations about European politics - especially Reagan and John Paull II conspiring to bring down communism - were captivating. I passed that book along to a fellow-traveller from NYC I met in Greece. He was studying European Politics at Trinity University in Ireland and was enthralled by information he would never otherwise have been exposed to. The following year, I bought a copy of "Sanctuary of the Chosen," having seen the author's name and remembered how I enjoyed his other book. I also saw in the back that there was a monthly newsletter called "The Berean Call"  being offered free of charge and sent away for it immediately. It was then that I began to read about things happening in Pentecostal churches that were unbiblical and were proven to be so. During the fiscal year of 1998-1999, I didn't attend church much, but walked with God daily. I married a girl of Italian Catholic background and didn't want to expose her to what she would see in a Pentecostal church. We began attending a local Christian Brethren church where I am still today. Tina, my first wife, passed away in 2008 but has now got the opportunity to talk to Dave in heaven. A year later, I remarried a widow named Balsam at that same church and God has blessed us with a precious daughter and we still fellowship at Green Valley Gospel Chapel. All through this time I have been receiving The Berean Call, by snail-mail and now email. I recall that when I used to receive the paper version, I pretty-much read the whole thing cover-to-cover with zeal and pleasure. I saw Dave twice when he spoke in Sydney. I couldn't help myself - I just had to get out of my seat and go over to shake Dave's hand and introduce myself when I saw him the first time. I later thought it may have been a little impertinent. My only defense is that I liken myself to those fans of rock-and-roll bands who press forward to see their idol. Though Dave was never an idol, I regarded him as a giant among today's teachers of God's word. He wasn't afraid to take on heresies - heathen, Catholic or Protestant (eg. Calvinism). I have written one novel called "Babylon The Great - The Mother of Harlots." I am proud to acknowledge that Dave's book and DVD, "A Woman Rides The Beast," as well as my own upbringing in Catholicism, was the inspiration for my writing the book. Today, I was surprised but not ashamed to say that I cried no less than 7 tissues of grief to hear of Dave's passing. He taught me to be discerning and to love Israel and to boldly proclaim the truth. It still hurts to know he's gone. But it helps to know who he's with. T.A., lead on brother. I'll be praying for you.

Doc - Damien - Australia -

Dave's work on Gods of the New Age was pure genius, so effective even now to warn against the wares of the east ie yoga and such. His life was one of very important service. Your Lutheran Brother, Damien

Seduced No Longer - Dan Kraf - Canonsburg Pa. -

Dave Hunt visited the little fellowship I attended and rocked my world - with truth. I had swallowed and believed much of what the "Word of Faith" camp had taught, and thought I was following God's will. Mr. Hunt, in his ever humble manner, ripped that facade away from me (and many others), with a measured and passionate reasoning from the scriptures that I thought I knew. He made me uncomfortable and a bit "stirred up". Who was this man to challenge what I was following? What a blessing from God! The Lord used Dave to expose the enemy and I'll be forever grateful. The spotlight he put on error took away its power to decieve. I went from a self empowering gospel to the real one. I thank God for Dave's boldness and love. With the continued influence of Dave through his books and The Berean Call ministry, I have a much closer walk with my King, and am reaching out to those in error with a small ministry of my own. We would all do well to follow Dave Hunt's example. He followed Jesus. Dan Kraf Stirred Not Shaken Ministry

Profound thanks and appreciation - Richard and Christine - UK -

We were saddened to hear of Dave's home-call, but rejoice to know that he is now in the presence of the One he served so faithfully. Since our conversions over 22 years ago, both of us have been enormously helped and encouraged by his ministry through the Berean Call. We look forward to greeting him personally at the pre-Tribulation Rapture, which he defended so masterfully. We give thanks and praise to our Lord for Dave's life and for you all at the Berean Call. Our thoughts and prayers are with Dave's wife and family at this difficult time for them. May God continue to bless and prosper the much-needed ministry of the Berean Call.

GREAT INFLUENCE - Lynn Bennett - Camp Hill, PA -

IN THIS TIME OF GREAT DECEPTION DAVE'S BOOKS HAVE HELPED ME UNDERSTAND, IN GREATED DEPTHS, WHAT IS GOING ON. IN MY AREA OF THE COUNTRY THERE IS NOT A SINGLE CHURCH (TO MY KNOWLEDGE) THAT HAS NOT BEEN TAKEN OVER BY "EMERGENT" OR "SIGNS AND WONDERS". OVER THE YEARS DAVE HAS HELPED ME REALIZE THAT I AM NOT ALONE IN SEEING THIS. WE HAVE LOST A GREAT TEACHER BUT TIME IS SHORT AND WE WILL SEE HIM AGAIN.

Various DVDs - Dr. Jon Swanson - Idaho -

We at Endurance Ministries thank God for Dave's faithful proclamation of His Truths over the decades. Brother Dave was influential in my personal journey in our Lord Jesus during the early years of my walk in Christ - very much so. Praise to His dear Name.

Spiritual vacuum - Paul Tatham - Orlando, FL -

Dave left a huge body of work! His ministry of "watchman on the tower" was sorely needed. and his passing will leave a tremendous vacuum. He had enviable boldness, especially living in our politically-correct society.

Author - Innovator - Philanthropist - Caesar Elmi - laguna Nigue, CA -

Dave was a great inspiration to our team. He taught the word of God unlike any other person. We will miss him greatly.

THANK YOU - Rosemary - Newport, Isle of Wight UK -

I just want to say Thank you for the wonderful teaching given and now left for us from the Lord through Dave. His books and the Berean Ministry have taught and enriched my journey with the Lord. I only met Dave once a few years ago he was teaching with Jacob Prasch in the UK. I knew I was listening to a man humble and obedient to the Saviour. I rejoice that he is with the Lord. God's richest Blessings for Ruth and his family. Good Night Brother see you soon.

Over The Years - Steve Jacks - Redmond, WA -

Like many thousands (probably millions) I have benefited greatly from Dave's keen insight and ability to clearly articulate scriptural truth. My book shelf is lined with Dave Hunt titles. My dad (who passed away in 2008) was also an avid Dave Hunt reader. I remember his buying multiple copies of "The Seduction of Christianity" and handing them out to his friends. Ephesians:4:8 talks about our Lord ascending up on high, leading captivity captive and giving gifts unto men. Dave Hunt was one of those gifts. When I saw your message "Dave Hunt 1926-2013" I was reminded of the poem "The Dash". Dave's dash was significant because of his uncompromising decision to pick up his cross and follow Him. What a tremendous example to all of us! I look forward to meeting him in person one day when our walk through this valley is over. Our prayers are with Ruth and the staff at Berean Call. God Bless

One of my favorites - Joe Mason - Visalia Ca. -

I was exposed to Dave around 1982 at a Calvary Chapel in Visalia. I was new at this 'church stuff', calvary was my first attempt at it. I had read the Bible for twelve years prior but did not want to expose myself to preachers. I believed they could influence us to believe things that are untrue. Dave proved that to me but added a passion for Christ's Church. I kept 'going to churches' but Dave helped me to see that I am part of the church, it is not a place to go but a thing to be. I have followed him and read almost every book he wrote. I disagreed with Dave on the security of the saints, and still do but that is the only place that I can say that we disagree. He warned me about dr. robert shank and said that shank did not believe in once saved always saved, so I bought shanks book and it inspired me to write my first book. This difference has never stopped me from going to a dave hunt conference or directing people to him for help when it came to problems in the 'church'. I will always love dave and cant wait to see him, Im sure I will. Joe

Thanks to a dear brother in Christ - Jerald Finney - Austin, Texas -

I have followed Dave's teachings since the 1980s, when I was saved. He was a tremendous source of knowledge in this spiritual warfare we are fighting. I will be looking forward to meeting him when I also go home to be with the Lord. Jerald Finney

In appreciation - Costa -

I would like to thank Dave for what he has contributed to my life and that of my family. I first became acquainted with the Berean Call in the early 1990's, just when I was going through a time of spiritual uncertainty and depression. The BC newsletter, Dave's books, and especially the prophecy conferences were a tremendous help to me during those difficult years. Dave's teaching was very formative in my spiritual life and he taught me the need for constant scrutiny and discernment. The Berean outlook is essential to a healthy Christian life. I, together with my wife and a small group of brothers & sisters, would look forward with anticipation and excitement to hearing Dave speak at the prophecy conferences in Niagara Falls, Ontario. God, working through Dave and the BC, got us through those difficult times. I read widely, and although I have learned much from many Christian writers and ministries, I must say that I feel that Dave and Ruth Hunt have helped me and my family in a special and personal way that we have not experienced from anyone else. When my wife and I would prepare for a trip or vacation, among the first items packed would be the Dave Hunt tapes. We would listen to these while driving here at home and abroad. Whenever I think back to those blessed times during the earlier part of our marriage, I remember, together with the joy of the kids when they were still little, the times of growing in the Lord through the teaching of Dave. All these recollections are wound together. We will always rejoice in Dave's memory as he is a permanent part of our lives. We look forward to meeting him again in a place of no tears and perpetual joy and praise of the Lord, of which this time is but a shadow. Thank-you Dave, blessed teacher and friend.

Sola Scriptura - gary - Beaverton,OR. -

It's just been recently within the last 3-4 months that i had started viewing the online videos of Dave and Tom. Bless the Lord for all of the laboring in the which both of them have done. Watching of the videos has helped very much with mine own understanding of the scripture. Strong witness of 'what does the bible say?' is always needed for sound doctrine that one may have an answer for every man and for the hope that is in the bible believing born again christian. The Godhead is 3 in 1. Born again of the will of the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, born again of the word of God,(which John ch.1 states clearly is Jesus Christ) and born again of the Spirit of God. A living hope in an living God and living saving and the Spirit is to be indwelling and living in us!!! While so many of the 'bibles' out there in all languages are merely perversions, the KJV of Jeremiah:29:11 will be accurate for mr. Hunts 'expected end'. As the Lord Jesus Christ hath said,'thomas,thou hast believed because thou hast seen and felt me, blessed are they which have not seen and yet believe' I didn't have the word open for that,it was just off the top of my memory. Anyhow. Praise the Lord for the strength and courage and persevering that Dave throughout his life was blessed to do for the King of kings and Lord of lords. Truly, his(dave) works do follow him. 'The end of an thing is better than its beginning'. No tragedy here, only triumph through the Lord Jesus Christ, my God and my King.

Just a testimony, and also a tool in the hand of the Lord... - Bruce Borsa - Geneva, New York -

Dear family of Dave, and The Berean Call ministry, This is more of an encouragement than a specific instance about an encounter with Dave. We've been hugely blessed to be exhorted by his messages a handful of times in the Finger Lakes, NY area (Calvary Chapel of the Finger Lakes), but it was not his presence that impressed us - what did impress us was his TESTIMONY and his steadfastness and desire for the truth to be spoken and shared with a lost. His exhortations and challenges always did and still do make me yearn for Jesus Christ to be glorified in all ways by sharing the truth of the Gospel with all who will listen! I thank God for the ministry of The Berean Call and my prayers are that God continues to use TBC going forward. The need for the Truth grows more and more every day, and now that the Lord has taking His servant home, I can't help but feel the pain of missing someone who I didn't even know, but seemed like a dear friend and a brother. We are praying for Dave's family, and also for the TBC ministry. In Christ, Bruce & Bonny Borsa

Part of an e-mail I sent to a friend upon hearing the news about our brother Dave - John and Susanna Rieger - nj, -

I was just talking to Susanna about how truly prophetic Dave was that friday while watching a report from J.S. Ministries. It was a interview with author Holly Swanson of the book Training for Treason. In the book she reveals how Mihail Gorbachev is the Architect of a new school curriculum being imposed by the government that is taking the country state by state. I was wondering if Dave was able to hear this information being in the condition he was in, for he often spoke about Gorbachev when Gorbachev seemed to be pretty much irrelevant, but when I checked my e-mail that Friday I knew then that he now had perfect knowledge being in the presence of the Lord. As you well know, Dave Hunt is someone I esteem to be very Great in the KIngdom of God. For those of us who are honestly concerned about truth he will be greatly missed. My wife quoted this scripture to me after we heard the news; The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth [it] to heart : and merciful men [are] taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil [to come]. Is 57:1.

Used of God - Taiwo Olokun - Southern California -
I became a follower of the Lord Jesus through Evangelical leaders via 107.9 FM here in Southern California (Kwave), but of all the preachers/teachers i learned from, truly Dave Hunt is the most sound/faithful and hardworking above them all. (TEARS): I AM SO GRATEFUL THAT HE STOOD STEADFAST ON HIS CONVICTIONS AND OPENED HIS MOUTH AND SAID SOMETHING TO CLEAR THE DARKNESS FROM SATAN AND DELIVER ME FROM THE CONFUSION I WAS RECEIVING UNDER CALVARY CHAPEL AND MAINSTREAM EVANGELICALS. I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR HIS WRITINGS THAT BROUGHT GOD'S LIGHT TO CAST AWAY THE DARKNESS I WAS UNDER AT CALVARY CHAPEL. MOST IMPORTANTLY, WE THANK OUR TRULY EVER PRESENT HELP THE LORD JESUS OUR STRENGTH WHO BECAME MY OWN STRENGTH. 
With heart-felt appreciation for our Christian brother, Dave Hunt. - Linda - Kansas City, MO -

My husband told me today that Dave Hunt had passed on Friday, April 5th. I was shocked because Dave has been one of my "teachers" for several years now. I so appreciated his vast wealth of information, his high intellegence, his committment to God's truth, his obvious love of Christ. My heart is so deeply saddened at this point, it is difficult to convey adequately the full apprecaition and admiration I had/have for my brother in Christ, Dave. I look forward to meeting him one day on the other side of eternity, where I'm sure my "teacher" will continue to instruct me on even more! What conversations we will have! The world lost a wonderful man of God on April 5, 2013. But he leaves an incredible Christ-centered legacy! Thank you, my friend and teacher, for all that you gave your life to, for the immeasureable contributions you have made to the advancement of Christianity and the resulting salvation of souls! You are now, no doubt, one of our precious Lord's favorite companions! And to his precious children and to the love of his life, Ruth, you are in my prayers for the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. Take heart...death is not forever, it is just for now! Lord bless you! And Ruth, thank you for sharing your precious husband with the world....you likewise are an obedient servant of our Lord! Bless you, sister!

Meeting Dave - Mary Gayle - Cedar Park,Tx78613 -

Dave came to my church several times. He was the most caring, humble man I had ever met. I enjoy his books and especially the 2 novels. I had kept up on his health news thru the Berean Call. Iam so sorry to hear of his passing, he was truly one of the warriors of the Lord. With great sympathy to Ruth and family. 

Gratitude beyond Words - Patsy Muir Ray Dodson - Colorado Springs -

It's hard to express the depth of gratitude I feel for Dave's very loving exposure of the seductions and superficiality within Christianity and man's religions. My parents and I were more than blessed to have known him and to have spent several years in the same church in Southern California. He has left a profound legacy that will prove to be a blessing to millions worldwide as they continue to visit thebereancall.org, read his many books and view his many DVDs. I have continued through the years to be so blessed through The Berean Call by this amazing man of God who had the tremendous courage to stand up against much disrespect and even contempt for simply exposing and telling the truth about what is false and what is true based on unadulterated in-depth study and accurate understanding of The Word of Truth. I was especially blessed by The Seduction of Christianity, The Cult Explosion, Death of a Guru, and What Love is This? He is to be honored, in my opinion, above and beyond any other biblical scholar of our day. It has been a true delight to make others aware of him, his books, and thebereancall and to share in the blessings they have received as a result. Ruth, I have always loved and admired you as well, and we pray God's continued strength and peace be especially evident and appreciated by you at this time of your very great loss.

Thank you, Dave. - Tineke Huurnink - Norfolk, VA -

Dave Hunt stands as a citadel next to other great Bible teachers, ever reminding us to check “whether those things were so.” Thank you, my brother, for teaching us unashamedly the truth of the gospel. Through so many, many years you have taught and guided us and you leave a very empty spot in our lives. We all just will have to work a little harder to fill that empty spot and to remind the faithful to check whether “those things were so.” Your outspoken and at times cutting but also highly humoristic style will be missed much, but you leave your books. So glad you did write them. So glad for you that now you have entered into the joy of our Lord. Partly jealous of your newly gained position, we must forge on. My prayers are with Mrs. Hunt and the family, and for those who need to understand more about our wonderful Lord and Savior and His great plan of salvation. Enjoy, enjoy, brother, the joy of our Lord! For many years I followed you. You gave your support and help to us who felt out of sync with so many “opinions” in so many different denominations. You were like a buoy believers could hang on to and trust. You would tell it like it was and how it should be, and for a Calvinistic raised Dutch woman coming to big America, you were a great support. The Berean Call Newsletter has been in our house for many a year. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Hunt. Mrs. Hunt, thank you. God be with you. 

Mentor in the faith. - John - Pen Argyl, PA -

After being saved I would read Gods word daily. It wasn't long before I realized that there were many false teachings in the church. Dave's books, dvd's and newsletters have been a blessing to me by exposing these false teachings and helping me to see God for who He really is. I consider Dave a mentor in the faith. I had the privilege of meeting Dave at a prophecy conference in 2006.

Much I've Learned About Defending the Faith I Owe To Dave - M. J. Greene, Paraclete Press Research Service, Inc. - Knoxville, TN -

Yes, I also rejoice that brother Dave is now with his Lord and Savior. I’d prayed for months that he’d be raptured among “…those alive…” If anyone deserved to be gathered directly Home while on earth it was Dave. He was never ashamed to declare the truth of the pre-Trib translation of Christ’s Bride. Now we know he will rise before those of us who will be alive at that moment. Like others I’ve been effectively instructed by Dave (and Tom’s) excellent corrective teaching. I am most thankful for the challenge to Calvinistic double-predestination in What Love Is This? as well as several works that urge Bereans to reject the errant psychologized gospel. My appreciation and understanding of Dave increased in recent years by reading his early book, Confessions of a Heretic. Soon we will meet him in glory! I pray the ministry continues to uphold the high standards he established from the beginning. 

Glory Be to Our King for Dave's words of Love and Wisdon from our Father (Abba) - The Krause Family (Ken and all 15 family members) - Coos Bay, OR -

To be absent from the Body is to be in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Father. If I can ask one thing, I would ask you Abba to tell Dave thank you for me and my wife for the many blessings he passed on to our family, and We love him dearly. Can't wait to meet with you Dave at the feet of our KING!! In our opinion, and I am most certain our King would agree, "Well done good and faithful servant". ALL GLORY TO OUR GOD! Ken Krause and the Krause Family

A TRUE MAN OF GOD - BETSY - CALIFORNIA -

FIRST, I WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND MY SYMPATHY TO ALL OF MR. DAVE HUNT'S FAMILY AND FRIENDS. EVEN THOUGH WE REJOICE AND KNOW HE IS WITH THE LORD NOW, WE WILL ALL MISS HIM HERE FOR MANY REASONS, SO HIS PASSING IS A LOSS, BECAUSE HE WAS A TRUE MAN OF GOD. WE REJOICE, ALSO, BECAUSE WE HAVE THE CERTAINTY WE WILL SEE HIM ONE DAY VERY SOON. WHEN THERE WAS NO INTERNET BACK IN THE 1980'S, OR, AT LEAST, I DIDN'T HAVE IT, YOUR BEREAN CALL NEWSLETTERS ARE WHAT KEPT ME GOING, HELPED ME TO BE CERTAIN OF MY BELIEFS, AND HELPED TO DEVELOP MY KNOWLEDGE, FAITH AND STRENGTH IN THE LORD. TWO BOOKS THAT HE WROTE HAVE GREATLY INFLUENCED MY LIFE: "JERUSALEM; A CUP OF TREMBLING", AND "THE GOD MAKERS" WITH ED DECKER. HIS YOUTUBE VIDEOS AND YOUR EMAILS HAVE ALSO HELPED ME TO GROW, AND TO BE SURE I AM NOT BEING LED ASTRAY, FOR WHICH I AM SO GRATEFUL. HE HELPED TO KEEP ME ROOTED IN THE TRUTH OF THE WORD, AND ENABLED ME TO DISCERN DECEPTION IN THE CHURCHES, PEOPLE, AND THIS WORLD. HE MADE SUCH A MARK IN THIS WORLD FOR THE LORD. HE SPOKE THE TRUTH, WAS SO INTELLIGENT AND ELOQUENT. I WISH I HAD HALF HIS ABILITY TO REACH PEOPLE WITH THE WORD, WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE END TIMES AS IT RELATES TO BIBLICAL PROPHECY, OR LEAVE SUCH AN AMAZING LEGACY AS MR. DAVE HUNT DID. HE TOUCHED SO MANY PEOPLE WORLD-WIDE. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE IN YOUR LIFE, MR HUNT, AND REST IN HIM NOW. BLESSINGS TO ALL IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

General - Chris Schutte - South Africa -

It is with joy in my heart to know he is with our Lord, but it is with great, great sadness that we lost a true servant of our Lord. This is the only reason why I mourn. This gets me on my knees to pray that our Lord will lead Tom to continue with the work.

How one of Dave's books influenced me
The Seduction of Christianity - Stephan Hurkens - East Rockaway NY -

Another great man who influenced so many. We will miss his ministry.

Mind Invaders, Sanctuary of the Chosen, Judgment Day. - Craig Overall - South Australia -

I just want to start out by saying what a blessing it is to have found out about Dave Hunt's books and his ministry with The Berean Call. I have always loved receiving the newsletter in my mail box and sharing them with friends who need to hear the truth about what is going on in the world and what the word of God has to say about it. I have read Mind Invaders and Sanctuary of the Chosen and can definitely say from things that have happened in my life that Dave wrote these as novels but they are so close to the truth it's amazing. I would also like to add that we had at our service an I.D.F Officer who was visiting and I had the opportunity to give her my copy of Judgment Day. What a blessing for both of us and how good is the Lord's timing! Now I have to gladly get another copy for myself and will never forget that our God knows exactly what to do even when we don't. Dave Hunt spoke the truth in love and didn't compromise, pointing out error and pointing us back to the Word to check for ourselves which in this day and age isn't popular. Mathew 25v21, 2 Timothy 4v7,8. Dave Hunt a true man of God and certainly like the Bereans.

I thank God for the ministry of Dave Hunt - Chris Stafford - Kalispell, MT -

My father -- an unbeliever -- had been invited to a church service where Dave spoke. My father received several tapes of the speaking engagement. I was recently born again and ravenous of God's word. I was immediately troubled by some of the discrepancies I found between what God's word said and what the church was teaching and believing. My father sent me Dave's tapes and they introduced me to someone that had the greatest influence of my Christian life. I attended Dave Hunt's engagements whenever they were local to me and met him on one ocassion. What an honor. Dave is with the Lord Hallelujah! -- but what a loss to the church. We have turned a corner. Sincerely, Chris Stafford Kalispell, MT.

The Seduction of Christianity - Christine Molano - Chippenham, England -

In the late 80s my husband and I were attending a church in Bath, England which seemed wonderful to begin with, then we started noticing things which did not seem quite right. People were saying things like 'we are children of the King, therefore we have a right to be treated as princes'. This translated as 'if you are a child of the King you will have lots of money, perfect health and a trouble-free life'. If you patently didn't have these things (and we didn't!), then doubt was cast on your salvation. Greatly troubled, my husband started asking other Christians about this strange doctrine but no-one seemed able to help, until finally he discovered a lady who had recorded excerpts from The Seduction of Christianity and lots of Dave's other works onto cassette tapes, which she let us borrow. Once we started to listen, everything fell into place and we very soon realised that 'Victory Church' was based on the erroneous teachings of Kenneth Copeland. We left the church immediately and, thanks to Dave Hunt, were able to help and advise others who were caught up in the prosperity gospel. I don't need to tell you how very thankful and grateful we were to him. If it hadn't been for Dave we probably would have been sucked into it eventually as so many millions of others were. I was very sad to hear of Dave's death but I know he had been in poor health for a while and it is so good to know he is now safely with his Lord, hearing that 'Well done, good and faithful servant' he so richly deserves. My sincere condolences to Ruth and the family.

A Woman Rides the Beast - Allan Rowley - Port Shepstone, South Africa -

When the Lord drew me out of the Catholic church I went to a Christian bookshop and as I walked around the bookstore I asked the Lord to select a book to read. I was drawn to "A Woman Rides the Beast". I had read a book and listened to a tape by Dave before so knew his name but not the contents of the book. Only once I started reading the book did I realise it was a history of the Catholic church and confirmed what people had been telling me about the Catholic church. I knew then the Lord never wanted me back in that church and that the Lord had pulled me out of that religious monstrosity. I have read many books by Dave since and have had the monthly newsletter for the past 20 years. He definitely was a man of God who had a deep love for the Lord and God gave him the knowledge and desire to inform all of us of not only the Bible but of all the religions out there. I still access through the web issues that have come from the Berean Call and use then in arguments with fellow Christians luke-warm in the faith and unbelievers. Thank you Dave, you were a blessing. See you in heaven some day soon.

A rescue from wrong doctrine - Lena da Cruz - South Africa -

It was in 1988 that I sent for the book written by Dave - The Seduction of Christianity - that opened my eyes to the truth and to the errors taught by the Faith movement I was in. The book was once mentioned in the church to be a book not to be read not to confuse us, and that was exactly what made me curious as I did not agree with many things it was happening in the church. After I read the book, it "happen" that here in South Africa they were broadcasting in a station called "Radio Pulpit" messages from Dr. John MacArthur who was saying the same as Dave in his book about the Charismatic movement. After all this, I couldn't remain in a church that was teaching non biblical doctrines and I left. I have learnt a lot with The Berean Call newsletters that I received faithfully by post and then by email. I will miss Dave, but at the same time I rejoice because he is in Glory in a perfect state. Like Psalms:116:15 says - "Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His Saints"! I believe the LORD is coming soon and we will be with Dave again in Heaven. May the LORD comfort and strengthen Ruth for the loss of her beloved husband as she will miss him even though she knows where he is. My love to her. In Yahshua's name Lena

A Woman Rides the Beast - Carol - Penfield, New York -

Dear Berean Call, I am both saddened and comforted by the passing of Mr. Hunt. I know that He is resting in the arms of His Loving Savior and Lord. When I first became a Christian in 1993, at age 39, I read Dave's book "A Woman Rides the Beast". I was formerly a Roman Catholic. It took me three months to read this book because it was so heartbreaking to learn of the great deception that not only I was under, but so many people of the world. At the same time, I was so Thankful to Jesus for pulling me out of that system. During the past 20 years I have shared many copies of this book to Catholic people that I love, and they also have been amazed and grieved by the deception. Satan hates us as human beings. But Jesus has the victory. Every time I have a question or check in my spirit about something that just doesn't seem right. I check with the Berean Call and know that it is Truth. God Bless you all at this Ministry. I am certain that Mr. Hunt enjoyed hearing Jesus say, "Well done, good and faithful servant."

Good bye - Barbara - S. CA -

So sad that Dave Hunt passed on. During the 80's his books turned Brent & I around & opened our eyes to the truth. I have seen him in person many times! I have most/all...of his books. I'm happy for him, as he is in Heaven...but sad for us, because we lost a watchman...

catholicism - joan - milford CT -

After 3-1/2 years of bible study, i was always wondering about a 'different Jesus, different gospel & different spirit'. it just wasn't a topic that was studied in those few years. i chalked it up to the 'obvious' - hindu, buddas, snake worship, etc. my church sister put 'A Woman Rides a Beast' in my hands one day (she knew i came from a catholic background). when i read that, my eyes were opened to something i never even knew existed!! my familys religion was the 'obvious' one!! i had to go online to find out the difference between what i was studying (the KJB) and what i thought they (the RCC) were studying. when the topics and their authors were listed, i clicked on the book i knew - and there was dave hunt. okay, i said, let's hear him out. after that i went to every site, every online radio with T.A., every debate he had, articles, newletters, etc... i was amazed at this guy. i was surprised no one tried to take him out with all the TRUTH he was speaking. Gods protection was upon him every step of the way. i was so grateful to my church sister and all of Dave's writings, teachings, etc. i will always continue to know him as my mentor on earth - a very special teacher and berean brethren. love and God bless to ruth & family, joan in berean training in CT.

Woman Rides the Beast - Sue - Long Beach, Ca -

Just want to say that Dave woke me up to the truth behind the Roman Catholic Church in his book and it lead me to be a Berean at all times. I loved to listen to his teachings and appreciated his passion for getting the truth out there regarding the apostasy in the churches. I will be rereading his books and passing them on! I look forward to speaking to him someday soon.

His book woke me up! - Jenna - Kentucky -

The "Seduction of Christianity" was the first book I ever read on the influx of eastern religions into our culture. At the time--over 25 years ago--I remember thinking, Is this REALLY happening? A quarter of a century later, the delusions and deceptions Dave described have only grown, spreading faster than I would have ever imagined. Thank God for Dave, for his courage to sound an alarm and lay a foundation of discernment for others to follow. May he find blessed rest in the awesome presence of Jesus.

He taught me to do my homework - Tina - Northern Ireland -

I first heard of David Hunt through Chuck Missler recommending one of his books, 'A Woman Rides the Beast' - a startling title yes, but one of the most insightful reads I have ever read. I was brought up catholic and even though I knew this system did not represent God's true church - the whole truth of the information I saw there has only inspired me to contend for the faith once given more than ever and to pray more fervently and in a more informed way for my loved ones still in it's hold. I thank God for the effort David Hunt put into the research and publication of this book.

Influence in education - Cathy - BC, Canada -

It was through Dave Hunt debating on the John Ankerberg show that I became aware of New Age thinking and it's influence in education. This was a major help to me as I tried to influence education in my District and maintain a Christian perspective in the decision-making of my Board. His reward in Glory will reflect the influence he had in this life. May his example lead each of us to be as steadfast!

Seduction of Christianity - Mary - Oshkosh, WI -

The pastor of my church brought attention to Dave's book as a possibility for a study in our Wednesday night study group. Although he was not familiar with Dave as an author, he had heard good things about the book and seemed truly anxious to see what Dave had to say. We read and then discussed one chapter of Seduction of Christianity each week. What an eye-opener. Dave not only exposed the false teaching but explained so clearly the deception Satan uses to draw people away from God. It made so much sense. It was the beginning of a search for truth for me. I will always be grateful for his insight and commitment to sharing that insight with other believers. I had the privilege to meet Dave at a prophecy conference and rejoice with you all that we will see him again.

ULTIMATE TEACHER - GEORGE Walker - United States CLYMER NY -

IT WAS 10 OR 12 YEARS AGO I WAS INTRODUCED TO A TAPE BY DAVE HUNT BY A CONTRACTOR FRIEND OF MINE ON A JOB WE WORKED ON. I WAS AND AM AN AVID READER OF CHRISTIAN AND WHAT I THOUGHT WERE CHRISTIAN BOOKS AND MATERIAL. ON HEARING DAVE ON TAPE AND READING SOME NEWSLETTERS GIVEN BY MY NEW FRIEND, I ORDERED DAVE'S PAST NEWSLETTERS WHICH CAME IN A LARGE BINDER. WHAT A TREASURE THESE WERE AND STILL ARE TO ME. I REFERENCE THEM OFTEN AS A BIBLE TEACHER, AND STILL RECEIVE THEM. IT IS ONE PIECE OF MAIL I EAGERLY LOOK FOR AND CARRY WITH ME DURING THE DAY TO READ AND UNDERLINE. THE BEREAN CALL MINISTRY HAS HELPED ME THROUGH THE MUCK AND MIRE OF THE SOMETIMES WEIRD AND CULTIC BELIEFS PASSING THEMSELVES OFF AS CHRISTIAN. THANK YOU DAVE AND T.A. FOR SEARCHING THE SCRIPTURES DAILY AND STANDING FOR TRUTH. SINCERELY MISSING DAVE, WILL SEE HIM IN GLORY. GEORGE WALKER

A truly inspiring man of God - Karla L. Varga - Clearwater, Florida -

I have read several of Dave's books including "A Woman Rides The Beast", "The God Makers", co-written with Ed Decker, and "Judgment Day". Every one was very informative and in-depth, as well as interestingly written. I have learned so much from his books and his monthly newsletter. Dave will be sorely missed by all who knew him or knew of him but we can all rejoice at his home-going because he is now with the Savior he loved and served. His dear wife and family will be in my thoughts and prayers. May the Lord hold his wife and family in His everlasting arms and comfort her as only He can.

Seduction of Christianity - Kathy Ulmer - United States -

Whenever Dave wrote a book, I was there to buy it!!! He was so right on in all his writings. The Seduction of Christianity, though written during the 20th. Century, is STILL a book that holds true today. I have a hard copy of it, and plan to buy it for my Kindle, to read AGAIN! God BLESS, To think he is now walking with the KING of KINGS and LORD of LORDS. WOW.....Bet he is one man , FULL OF JOY today. Ruth, may God comfort you with the knowledge that your wonderful husband kept the faith, finished the race, and left full and ready for Glory. Kathy

"The God Makers" - Bob - Idaho -

The God The God Makers was the first book on Christianity I ever read. I haven't looked back since. God bless Mr. Hunt, RIP...

seduction - John & Julie Maxwell - Katanning, Western Australia, Australia -

I'm a slow learner - it took me 45 years of living as a sinner to come to an acceptance of the gift of salvation from God via His Son Jesus Christ. My wife Julie, much brighter then me, had done so when she was a young girl. I got saved in a Pentacostal fellowship that within two years had its first church split and within another two it experienced its second. I began to wonder what was wrong with fellow believers. For me after salvation it was easy - unlike many other believers, I knew what a sinner I had been and I was joyful at being forgiven. I accepted everything the bible said to me without challenge - after all it is the Word of God. Confused at the behaviour of other believers, I came across the book "Seduction of Christianity" and the light went on and I began to understand. With my scientific penchant for analyzing things thoroughly, I examined all aspects of the time since Christ as well as Old Testament history and prophecy and realised that as we are in the flesh we can and are easily led astray by our carnality. Yet on all occasions I found that Dave was consistent in his analysis of what was happening and how, of course, this complied with biblical prophecy. I didn't agree with Dave on all things and at all time, just most of the time and I am saddened, but joyful that he has gone to be with the Lord. We pray for Ruth, the family and the Berean ministry. May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless you all.

Dave's books have been an inspiration in the faith and educational. - Kenneth Green - United States -

I think it was in the 1980's when I read Dave's book, entitled The Seduction of Christianity. It was a great reminder for me and every believer in Jesus Christ to stay in the Word and read it every day and not allow myself to be fooled with false doctrine. I also finished reading his last book about the Cosmos and it really nailed down the false nonsense of thinking that there is no God. How absurd, especially in relation to the first three chapters of Romans in the New Testament. Dave left this planet better off than when he came into it. I'd like to believe that God will bless Dave in Heaven for his efforts on Earth that were done in faith while serving the Lord. In Him, Kenneth Green

Funny story about Dave
Not out to impress people - Paul Tatham - North Palm Beach, FL -

Dave Hunt was speaking at Palm Bible Chapel, a weekend seminar on the New Age movement. Between sessions, he would sometimes relax by simply lying flat on his back on the platform rather than "working the crowd." He was pleasant with people, mind you, but he wasn't out to impress anyone. I loved that nonchalant air of his.

first meeting with Dave - Dave Fitzgerald - Calvary Chapel of St. Louis County -

Like many others I had been influenced by Dave Hunt's book and messages. I had admired him since I became a believer. I now pastor a church in the St. Louis area and Dave was speaking at a conference. I called and asked if he would consider staying over and speaking for us a couple of times. Dave graciously agreed. After the conference I went with my son, a young teen at that time to pick up Dave for dinner. Dave began to tell us a story about an experience he had recently on a horse. He told us how this horse began to buck and threw him to the ground, his foot was caught in the stirrup and the horse continued to gallop. Dave told us he was yelling for help, in fear of his life and finally the manager of the store came and unplugged the child's mechanical horse that he had been riding. Dave told the story with such a straight face and genuine emotion that he had my son and I hooked right up to his punchline. It opened my eyes to a side of the man I had never heard about. To see him joke and relax with us was such a joy. Then of course he came to speak at church and his passion for God's Word and love for the lost filled our sanctuary. A few years later, Dave taught at the same conference. I again called to have him speak and was told that Dave was taking no extra engagements. To my surprize the phone rang and a few minuter later and it was the Berean Call. It seemed that they mentioned to Dave that I called, and he said that even though he was scheduling no speaking engagements, he wanted to make and exception for us and come speak. That phone call meant a lot to me because Dave Hunt meant and means a lot to me, he will be missed.

First Meeting with Dave
Happy Birthday!!!! - Dominic Frontera - Riverview, Michigan -

My wife and I were very blessed when Dave came to Calvary Church in Macomb, Michigan. The year was 2006, Dave's 80th birthday. My wife and I first met Dave outside of the gymnasium just before the speaking engagement began. Dave was very kind to us and when he heard my name, he asked if I was Italian(Dominic, imagine that!!!). I had Dave sign my Bible, it was the only book I brought with me. I told my wife that simply Dave brings glory to God through his ministry. Dave must have overheard as he also jotted down Jeremiah:9:24. " But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord, which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth; for in these things I delight, saith the Lord". As my wife and I listened to Dave, he really delighted in glorifying the Lord in all he did. Shortly after becoming born in again in May of 1994, I was blessed with a man at my workplace who discipled me. As I look back, I can't say enough about discipleship after conversion. My coworker Mike recommended me to The Berean Call newsletter, and I have been blessed ever since reading, listening and watching material that directs me to God's word. Your ministry is a blessing, and being raised a Roman Catholic, the truth of God's word is even more magnified. I pray for Ruth and the rest of the family. We all know Dave is home. Dave will see Christ face to face, the living Word. I thank the Lord for using him and blessing my life.

My Son Meets Dave - Tad Bronson - United States -

Dave often spoke at the Prophecy Conference at Calvary Chapel, Appleton, WI. I had been talking with my son, David, about what a person who loves the Lord is like. What better lesson that to meet a living example. David worked for Lane Gibson, the Associate Pastor, at Pilgrim's Cafe. I also know Lane and asked him to introduce my son to Dave Hunt. After Dave spoke at the Sunday morning service following the conference, Lane introduced my son, David, to a truly remarkable Man of God. Mr. Hunt was a little embarrassed because his nose had started bleeding, but it didn't matter to us. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that we still talk about to this day. What was really meaningful to me was how Mr. Hunt talked with David and treated him like he was the most important person he had ever met. This moment was not lost on my son who said he hoped to walk with the Lord like Dave did. Many thanks to Lane and Dave Hunt for giving us this memory.

MY MEETING WITH DAVE HUNT - Ernie - Youngtown, AZ -

I HAD THE HONOR TO MEET MR HUNT IN THE EARLY 90'S AT CALVARY COMMUNITY CHURCH IN PHOENIX AZ. AND I WAS STRUCK BY HIS HUMBLE DEMEANOR, BUT AS HIS BOOKS SHOWED HIS STRENGTH INSIGHT AND KNOWLEDGE OF SCRIPTURE WAS PROFOUND. NOTHING THAT HE EITHER WROTE OR SPOKE ABOUT WAS EVER HIS PERSONAL OPINION BUT HE ALWAYS DEFERED TO SCRIPTURE. MR HUNT IN HIS TALK THAT DAY ADMONISHED ALL OF US TO BE LIKE THE BEREANS DON'T TAKE HIM AT HIS WORD BUT SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES AND VERIFY WHAT HE WAS TEACHING. I ALSO HAD THE OPPORTUITY TO ASK HIM ABOUT MY QUESTIONS CONCERNING EZEKIEL CHAPTERS 37,38 AND MY BELIEF THAT THAT BATTLE WAS THE PRECURSOR TO THE RISE OF THE ANTI cHRIST AND THE SEVEN YEAR PEACE TREATY. HIS BOOKS HAVE HAD A PROFOUND EFFECT ON ME AND MY WALK WITH OUR LORD AND SAVIOR AS ONE WHO ALSO LOVES HISTORY THE STUDY OF ESCOTOLOGY HAS BEEN MY FOCAL POINT CONSIDERING THE TIMES WE LIVE IN. MY GREAT REGRET IS THAT I NEVER GOT TO SEE HIM AGAIN NOR LISTEN TO HIM IN PERSON, HOWEVER I BELIEVE WE ARE SO CLOSE TO THE TIME SPOKEN OF BY THE APOSTLE PAUL IN 1ST THESSALONIANS 4 13-18 THAT I WILL BE ABLE TO SEE AND TALK TO HIM AGAIN VERY SOON AMEN! PLEASE GIVE MY REGARDS AND SYMPATHY TO HIS FAMILY AS ONE WHO LOST MY BELOVED WIFE A SHORT TIME AGO KNOW THAT EVEN THOUGH WE KNOW WHERE THEY ARE IT IS STILL HARD TO SAY GOODBYE EVEN FOR A SHORT TIME.

He hath done all things well - Kimble - Slidell Bible Chapel -

I was a baby Christian when I first heard Mr. Hunt speak at our Chapel. His teaching confirmed that the God's Word is sufficient for all things in my life. As I studied The Berean Call monthly newsletters and several of his books alongside scripture, God's Word came alive visibly in my life as I was emboldened to confront the world's attitudes with other professing Christians. Thru the Chapel's teaching and Mr. Hunt's loving refuting of the world's false doctrines, I have led a "Book Club" for 4 years of nominal and professing women. Consequently, as God's Word drew them and the Holy Spirit convicted, we have seen new birth into God's family of 9 people now actively and boldly proclaiming and serving our Savior. I anxiously await to introduce them to Dave as we worship together in the presence of our Lord and King. God continues to work even as He calls us home.

Favorite quote from Dave
Accredited - Aaron - Baton Rouge, LA -

I remember I first came across Dave Hunt while listening to an audio version of a Red River Bible Prophecy conference. I had just fully surrendered my heart to The Lord at 19 years old just a few months earlier. Jesus had radically transformed my life and I was devouring as much of the Word and teaching on it as I could get. The Lord was beginning to open my eyes to the deception in the church which thus led me to the Berean Call website. Anyway, a long story short, Dave was sharing in a message and was talking about the universities that were becoming 'accredited'. In a very sarcastic and drawn out voice he said "wooooow, accredited". I sat and laughed at this and do think about it from time to time. His teachings have been a tremendous blessing to me and he will be sorely missed. Yet we shall see him again one day very soon.
