My name is Donald Whitchard. I have served the Lord Jesus Christ as a minister of the Gospel for almost forty years. I'm at the age where I can be classified as a "senior adult", discounts and all. I'll give you a hint about how old I am. Elvis was still around during my high school years, but he passed away on August 16, 1977, the day before we took our senior class pictures, and that was a bummer. My generation went through the rise and fall of disco, shag carpeting and wood paneling in our homes, no seat belts in cars, no internet and no cell phones. We endured the "Cold War" between the Communist Russians and the Free West, which ended with the tearing down of the Berlin Wall in 1989. We only had three TV channels with no remote. You had to get up out of your chair (or recliner) and change the channels manually (Whoa!).
There were no such things as bike helmets, knee pads, "play dates", "time outs", or "safe spaces". You took care of bullies by punching them in the nose, then picked them up off of the ground, shook hands, and asked them to join you and your friends at the playground. You DARED not talk back to your parents, teachers, or any authority figure unless you wanted to witness your early demise. We saw the premiere of "Star Wars", watched"Saturday Night Live" when it was actually FUNNY, and grieved as our fellow Americans were being held hostage by the Iranians for 444 days. Ted Koppel of ABC's "Nightline" began counting down the time they were in captivity until they were freed at the minute Ronald Reagan became President on January 20, 1981. The Ayatollahs running Iran did not want downtown Teheran turned into a nuclear-powered parking lot courtesy of several American B-52's. We also endured the summer of 1980 trying to figure out who shot the villainous oil baron of TV's "Dallas", J.R. Ewing, and the list goes on. It's amazing we're still here.
I was born and reared in southwestern Louisiana, known as "Cajun Country". The swamps and bayous were part of my life along with the great food, unique culture, Zydeco music, New Orleans blues and jazz. My grandparents lived during the time of the Great Depression and World War II. They were part of "The Greatest Generation", the likes of which we will never see again. My parents were hard and honest workers, but I can recall lean times when all we had in the house to eat were a couple of cans of soup. I had the noodles and they drank the broth. So please, little snowflakes, do not give me any nonsense about "white privilege", thank you. I began working when I was 16 for $2.10 per hour in a local grocery store. There was never a lack of things to do, regardless of the circumstances (Proverbs 12:11, 20:13; 1 Timothy 5:8). If more people would get up off their backsides, get a job, and out of trouble, we would not have had all the foolishness and destruction in our society in the past few years. Just a thought.
I am a graduate of Louisiana College (B.A., History Education, 1984); New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div., Christian Education, 1994); and Andersonville Theological Seminary (Doctor of Ministry; Biblical Studies, 2000). I've served the LORD as an evangelist, teacher, and pastor in Louisiana and Oklahoma. I also did a stint as an adjunct professor of Biblical Studies at a private college near New Orleans for several years. I got involved with rescue missions and area hospitals serving as chaplain until August 2019, when I stepped down due to health reasons that have improved with the use of prayer, faith, and an effective medicinal regimen, as well as the support and love of family and friends.
I have been wed to Cathy, the love of my life, since August of 1983. We have three children; a daughter and son who are both adults and a baby girl waiting for us in heaven. We called New Orleans home for fourteen years (1991-2005) until the 28th of August 2005, when we fled from Hurricane Katrina and the horrendous damage it did not just to the city but to the souls of its citizens. We ended up moving to Oklahoma in October of 2005, and settled in the city of Muskogee.
I devote my time to the field of internet evangelism by writing Bible studies, sermons, and articles of interest for Christian websites, doing so with a sense of urgency as I see time running out and that the time to commit your life to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is NOW (Acts 4:12; 2 Corinthians 5:10, 6:2; Philippians 2:9-11). No one will be overlooked, be exempt, or without an alabi or excuse on the Day of Judgment including you, friend. You have been warned (Ezekiel 3:17-21).
I do a daily broadcast on my YouTube Channel entitled "The Reality City Review" I also post the broadcasts on Facebook, Rumble, Parler, and GETTR. My broadcasts consist of expository teaching from books of the Bible. I also discuss issues that many pastors are afraid to touch. This includes preaching aboout the silent "H" word (hell), the wrath of God, and the need for national and personal repentance. I promise that you will never hear anything on my broadcasts like the content coming from the hip, smiling, latte'-sipping, celebrity "social justice soy-boy fake pastors" over at the local "Six Flags over Jesus" megachurch, hair care and tire center.
I call it as I see it, and I will not hesitate, back down, apologize, or compromise when it comes to the fact of salvation through Jesus Christ and Him ALONE (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). If you have a prayer request or are in need of Bible-based counseling, or represent a church, school, or business, and are interested in having me come speak, contact me at my Email address or leave a message at my number listed at the top of the page and we'll discuss the details.
Keep scrolling down and take the time to watch the videos that I've posted. No fluff and icing here, just the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the sole reason I have this website and my YouTube channel. It's all about Him, Amen?
