Walter Robinson II's
Spiritual Background

For most of his early adult life Robinson was without real direction and purpose. This is especially true concerning spiritual matters.

His spiritual history is multifaceted, diverse, and perhaps even weird to some. He grew up in Beckley, West Virginia and was baptized in an American Baptist church when he was ten years of age in 1964. Though he was gravely afraid of water, he sought baptism and joined the church because he had come to understand that he could escape going to hell and go to heaven in death only by doing so. That was his belief and religion for the next thirteen years. But his life did not change in the least. In fact, he got deeper and deeper into many evil practices as the years passed by.

In his late teens his spiritual interests became more diversified—and strange. Early in the 1970’s he became involved in teachings and practices that later became widely known as ‘New Age.’ He was especially intrigued and interested in concepts that dealt with extraterrestrials and UFOs. From 1976 until 1977 he served as an official investigator for the National Investigative Committee on Arial Phenomenon (NICAP), and was responsible for handling UFO reports in the state of West Virginia.

During the fall of 1977, Robinson’s spiritual direction abruptly changed. He heard the gospel of Jesus Christ in a holiness Church and was born-again as he received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. He subsequently broke from all New Age practices and resigned from NICAP shortly later. He later became convinced that he had been called to serve as a preacher of the word of the God.

In 1978 he began serving as an interim pastor in a holiness denomination (Church of the Nazarene) in Charleston, West Virginia. In 1979 he accepted the pastorate of that same church. In time he came to practice what he believed was the gift of prophecy after watching a Charismatic television evangelist seemingly exercise the gift on a religious television network. A little over one year later, in 1980, he left his pastorate and became part of a interdenominational Charismatic Fellowship in St. Albans, West Virginia where he remained for one year.

From the time of his being born-again Robinson began to immerse himself in the teachings of the Bible. Desiring to know more about the word of God, he took up studying the languages of the original manuscripts and the ancient cultures and history that served as the historical basis for the Bible. Over the ensuing years his knowledge of the ancient cultures and religious practices increased. In a few years—and with the aid of available language tools—he had gained a working understanding of ancient Hebrew and the Koiné Greek.

It was around 1981—and because of his ongoing Bible study and research—that Robinson came to realize that something was gravely wrong with his present spiritual direction. He became concerned over the underlying historical foundation and philosophy behind the rapidly growing Christian Pentecostal and Charismatic experiences. The specific practices that concerned him were:

  • Speaking in ‘unknown tongues’

  • Gaining extra-biblical revelation through the supposed interpretation of ‘unknown tongues’

  • Supposed prophesying

  • Supposedly receiving words of knowledge.

Through personal experience and research Robinson also discovered that the practices are not only common with may Christian holiness groups, Christian Apostolic and ‘Jesus Only’ sects; they are also common in many cults, Roman Catholicism, New Agers, Voodoo practitioners, a gambit of non-Christian religions—and even UFO contactees!

During this same period of in-depth Bible study he also came to conclude that something was wrong with cross-doctrinal practices as promoted in the Ecumenical Movement. He personally witnessed how ecumenical unity often could be obtained only at the sacrifice of Biblical doctrine, even though the Bible itself teaches that ‘All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:’(2 Timothy 3:16)

Robinson also came to find himself at odds with the teaching of holiness, Pentecostal, and also many Charismatics who claimed that a believer could lose their salvation. When he had first heard the gospel he knew that the Bible taught that ‘For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9Not of works.’ But Robinson had also become convinced that the believer is ‘… kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.’(1 Peter 1:3). Thus, he believed that teaching a believer that they could lose their salvation is unbiblical. At that time he renounced his past charismatic practices and broke off associating with groups who did practice them.

During this time of research Robinson began searching for a group of believers whose doctrine and practices were just as he believed the Bible taught. He spent one year in a Missionary Baptist Church in South Charleston, West Virginia, but kept looking and visiting several other churches. He and his wife, Linda, had also began looking for a good school in which he could enroll his daughter (five-years-old at the time) into kindergarten.

In 1984 he found a Bible Church and associated Christian School that filled all requirements. This church was located in the Charleston, West Virginia area, some five miles from his home. He joined that church early in 1985 and in time came to serve as a deacon, a member of the official board, a member of the Christian School board, and on the missionary committee. He remained a faithful member and worked in that church until the Lord led him and his family into full time missionary work overseas in 1991. This church still serves as their sending and home church.
