  1. Let me be as clear as I possibly can; A Preacher who bashes ANY KJV Bible, whether It has a flag on the front cover or not, and whether It has an addendum of US Founding documents or not; documents, by the way, that were written by God-fearing men, who formulated those documents based on principles found in the KJV Bible,, is not, nor ever will be, one of my heroes. If Loran Livingston were honest, he. probably hates Donald Trump; the Donald Trump that urged all Americans, during Easter 2024, to purchase, and read, a KJV Bible. The ” other guy ” was promoting transgenderism during the same time period, and I have never seen any footage of Loran Livingston bashing this OBVIOUS BLASPHEMY. Because of this, I have to wonder just who’s side Loran Livingston is really on.

  2. Pastor Livington definitely has Jesus working through him. He had me listening. Paying attention. Bless this man for only speaking the truth. Even when it’s hard to hear.

  3. So this preacher takes issue with President Trump publishing the US Constitution and Declaration of Independence in a book with bible text. He calls it “blasphemy.” Here is the definition of blasphemy:
    blas·phe·my
    /ˈblasfəmē/
    noun
    noun: blasphemy; plural noun: blasphemies
    the act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things; profane talk.
    “he was detained on charges of blasphemy.

    Looks like Loran Livingston is not aware of what the word actually means. By publishing this bible, President Trump is attempting to expose people to high standards of personal conduct and why those high standards are protected in the US by our constitution. Whether he is aware of this or not, Livingston is a useful fool being used by the communists to eliminate the standards that President Trump is desperately working to protect. All you sheep who gush with expressions of love for this non-credentialed “pastor” apparently ignore that actions speak louder than words. Trump acts; Livintston talks.

  4. I was a student at Lee College when I heard this man preach. LORAN Livingston is one of the reasons among others that has turned their lives over to the Lord Jesus Christ. I am forever grateful for his ministry and heart for the lost and wandering souls. I just happen to find his sermons on YouTube this week and am amazed that his preaching has not stopped. As long as there is breath, keep on keeping on!! Thank you Pastor Livingston.

  5. Grateful for Pastor Loran’s Holy Spirit filled determination and faithfulness to preach the Truth of the Word of God.

  6. You do know the Church of God denomination based out of Cleveland TN teaches that people who divorce the first covenant spouse can remarry based on grounds of sexual sins or desertion. Loran, as all Church of God preachers in that movement, believes this heresy. The father of secular humanism the one and only Erasmus whom the Roman Catholic church excommunicated as a raging heretic in the 1600s taught this heresy. The Church of God of Prophecy which split from the Church of God in the late 1920s parted over some issues and allowing workers and members to remarry was at the forefront.

    My great-grandmother who lived before I was born was in the Church of God, then later in the Church of God of Prophecy didn’t believe in divorce and remarriage. Her husband was a lifelong drunkard and bum until God saved him a few years before he passed. She didn’t give up on him and one Sunday morning she saw those 2 shoes walking down that aisle. I would never support any preacher that would not take a stand on divorce and remarriage. I hope all these preachers repent before they die.

    1. Wow. Ever hear of grace, my friend? Glad you’re not the judge. I am sure you have sinned in your life and 1 is not better than the other. G@d stated touch, not my anointed.

    2. Where does Pastor Livingston stand on the BLACK Lives Matter movement and the push for racial justice in general?

    3. Eric:

      I suggest you re-read 1 Corinthians, Chapter 7 and Matthew 19: 8-9; and read the book, Disqualified, by Dave Miller.

  7. Since I moved from New York during the Covid season, someone introduced me to Central church. Pastor Loran has been a blessing to me and my husband during our time of transition. Now that we are members of the church, we are continually spiritually fed and encouraged by the true gospel he preaches. All ministries I have gotten involved in are also a reflection of the deep belief Sandra and Lorain live and believe. Before concluding anything, please listen to him on Sundays the Lord will open your eyes to His great salvation! I do pray for you who need assurance or salvation. This is not Loran you must listen to, it is the Holy Spirit who speaks through him. Amen!

  8. I first met H Loran Livingston in Oct 1985. What a handsome young 34-year-old preacher…black hair and no glasses. His only health problem is his chronic asthma. Today at 71, he has glasses and almost grayish-white hair. He still preaches as strongly and forcefully as he did 37 years ago at age 34. They say behind every great man there is an equally great woman, and that is his beautiful wife of 50 years, Sandra Weatherby Livingston. They were such an attractive couple, that we used to refer to them as Ken and Barbi. They both survived Covid-19, despite Loran having chronic asthma. The Lord God is not through with him. I pray for them and their ministry daily and nightly.

    I remember well and thank God for the memories of Sandra’s mom and dad. Mr. and Mrs. G E Weatherb,y and their son Ken Weatherby, who was a perfect singing voice in that 100 or more voice choir. Sandra also had a lovely singing voice doing many solos. Also, I remember well Loran’s great parents. Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Livingston, their other son Dennis and daughter Janice. God bless them all.

    Loran never graduated from college and his Doctorate is an honorary one, not a real one. He admitted the education facts from the pulpit. Check with Lee University if you doubt.

    1. So what…I was a member there for 15 years and saw thousands of people saved and changed. He baptized me in 1986. I’d stand up against anyone for Loran if needed.

    2. Why does anyone care? It’s his powerful message of truth that matters. You should be ashamed of yourself and take this down…seriously.

    3. Why do you even care about his education? So now that you “checked with Lee University,” now what? What good did it do you? Has that helped you in someway?

  10. I listen to Pastor Livingston every Sunday afternoon. He tells it like it should be preached. I am uplifted when I hear him every week. I pray that you continue to do the Lord’s work. He has truly blessed you and I can see why he does. Even at the age of 75, I still learn a lot. I would love to have a pastor like you. You bless my soul when I listen to your preaching. May God continue to bless you!

  11. I listen to you every Sunday morning on WFMW radio in Madisonville, Kentucky on our way to church. Your sermons are so uplifting. You preach it like it is. Thank you and may God bless you always.

    1. I traveled from Charleston, South Carolina to visit the church and to hear pastor Loran what an awesome man of God. I listen to him day and night. The choir is wonderful to listen to great singers.

  12. I listen to you every Sunday morning on WFMW radio in Madisonville, Kentucky on our way to church. Your sermons are so uplifting. You preach it like it is. Thank you and may God bless you always.
