Gary Bowman


Gary Bowman, has called himself Moses since 1986.  He flip-flops so much on doctrine he can make your head spin.  His beliefs change at a moments notice.He operates out of  Sallisaw, Oklahoma, but he travels to college campuses and various places to teach his heresies.


Heresies of Bowman

Bowman -- The Father, Son and Holy Ghost are not three different God’s who make up the Godhead but rather the same God manifested three ways. Man is made in the Image of God, man has a Body, a soul, and a Spirit. God is the same way with a body(Jesus), soul(Father), and spirit(Holy Ghost) 1John 5:7 

DOV -- The Trinity (YHWH Elohim) is not a Being with three parts as we are.   The Father is spirit and He is a separate Being from the Son and the HOLY SPIRIT.   The Son (YAHSHUA IMMANUEL YAHWEH) is spirit who was incarnated and has a body.   He is a separate Being from the Father and the HOLY SPIRIT.  The HOLY SPIRIT is spirit who is a separate Being from the Father and the Son.  For more on the Trinity go to --


Bowman -- We are not saved yet however until the resurrection of the dead, until then we live by Faith and have the Hope of eternal life.Rom 8:24-25, Heb 11:1

DOV -- A person is saved and has eternal life given to him at the moment he trusts YAHSHUA to save him (John 5.24; I John 5.11-13).


Bowman -- If we loose hope or deny the faith in Christ Jesus by believing lies instead of truths or we continue in sin after we have been delivered from our sins then we will go to Hell and not be saved. 2Peter 2:20-21, 1John 3:1-10, Ezek 18:4,20

DOV -- At the moment we trust YAHSHUA to save us we have eternal life and it cannot be taken away, stolen, forfeited or given back (John 5.24; Rom. 8.38,39)


Bowman -- The Bible is the infallible word of God. God has chosen the King James Version to make himself known to men. Both Old and New Testaments are to be used for instructing the body of Christ. Rev 22:19, 1Cor 10:11, Rom 15:4

DOV -- The bible is the infallible, holy Word of YAHWEH Elohim, but the KJV is NOT the only acceptable or the best translation.  It is just one of many good translations.  The best and most accurate is the NASB.


Bowman -- When we are Born again and Baptized then we receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, as evidenced by speaking in tongues. Acts 2:38-39, Mark 16:17-18

DOV -- No one since the First Century AD was given the gift of speaking a known language which he did not know as evidence of being filled with the HOLY SPIRIT.   Everyone who has spoken a known language that they did not know since the First Century AD has done so under the power of the fprces of darkness.  What is called "speaking in tongues" is virtually all jibberish.  The few cases of someone speaking a real language has been done by the power of the forces of the devil.  Many charismatic churches do not believe that speaking jibberish is a proof of being filled with the HOLY SPIRIT. 


Bowman -- The gifts of the spirit are as viable today as they were at the day of Pentecost. Mark 16:17-18, Acts 2:38-39, 1Cor 12:1-12

DOV -- The charisma gifts of I Kor. 12 have not been given since the First Century AD.  They were given sparingly as proof that YAHSHUA IMMANUEL YAHWEH is the true Messiah.  Once that was firmly established within a few years of His resurrection and ascension the gifts were withdrawn.


Bowman -- Post Tribulation Rapture of the Church. Matt 24:29-31, 1Cor 15:51-52

DOV -- The Rapture cannot be at the end of the Tribulation.  The doctrine is self-contradictory, illogical and clearly un-Scriptural.  For proof of this go to --


Bowman -- Those who believe lies and false doctrine will be damned to Hell. 2 Thes 2:10-12

DOV -- True believers who fall for false doctrines will NOT lose their salvation.   They will lose rewards.  Billions of people who believe lies and false doctrines will be damned to Hell & the Lake of Fire because they are not saved.   Gary Bowman may be among them.

There is a literal Hell and a Lake of Fire. Matt 10:28, Matt 23:33, Mark 9:43-48, Rev 20:14-15

 DOV -- I am surprised Bowman teaches this.  Most cult leaders deny it.  Hell and the Lake of Fire are real places where the wicked will be tortured through all eternity.  I fear Gary Bowman may be among them.

Unitarian Universalism faith unveiled
by Nik Robbins
8 Feb 2001

The return of Gary Bowman, the fundamentalist preacher who calls himself "Moses," to our campus, is sure to raise religious controversy once again. But that is not necessarily a bad thing. Bowman's rhetoric is harsh and almost entirely devoid of truth, but he can cause people to think about their religion (or lack thereof). Fortunately, few, if any, of Bowman's listeners believe what he says. Perhaps some will think about why he is wrong.
It is an assumption of my faith that religion should be thought about, rather than unthinkingly followed or rejected. Every person is free to come to their own conclusions regarding religion, but they should come to them on their own, not simply inherit them from parents or copy them from peers.
Students certainly should not believe something because a guy in a suit yells that they'll go to hell if they don't. Not that the ideas of "Moses" are entirely rejected, but the purpose of the religious community is to support an individual in their quest for knowledge and faith. Enforcing a specific set of beliefs should not be imposed or forced on others.
These are my beliefs, those of a creedless faith.
What is this creedless faith? When I'm asked my religion, I reply, "Unitarian Universalist." Surprisingly, many people know something of what I'm talking about. It's surprising because Unitarianism is a scarcely followed and little-known faith, with followers mounting to less than 1 percent of the U.S. population.
The influence of Unitarians has long been greater than the number of its adherents. Many influential women and men have been Unitarian and/or Universalist members or sympathizers, too many to list. (If interested, a very thorough list can be found at
But what exactly is this small, yet influential, creedless faith? I'll attempt to explain.
The Unitarian Universalist Association was formed in 1961 with the merger of two liberal churches that had grown out of the Christian tradition but had come to be more than just Christianity. Unitarianism originally consisted of those who did not accept the doctrine of the Trinity, finding little biblical reason to do so.
The religion originally consisted of Christians who felt they could not reconcile the idea of a loving God with that of eternal punishment in hell, believing instead in universal salvation.
These two non-mainstream denominations both grew rather liberal, becoming very open faiths with very little dogma or creed (required beliefs for membership). When they came to resemble each other enough, they merged, forming a faith open to everyone that declares itself to have no creed or dogma at all.
About a quarter of today's Unitarians consider themselves Christians. The rest consider themselves some other faith, a combination of several, or simply Unitarian Universalists.
How can such a diverse group of people get along without a formal set of beliefs? Well, there is nothing that must be believed to be a part of the Unitarians, but there is a set of assumptions most have freely chosen. The UUA, the democratic government of the denomination, has stated them like this:
"We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist association, covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equity and compassion in human relations; acceptance of one-another and encouragement of spiritual growth in our congregations; a free and responsible search for truth and meaning; the rights of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large; the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all; and respect for the interdependent web of all existence, of which we are a part."
It is not a creed, but a mere declaration of the current feeling of the democratic representatives of the faith's members, which reflect their common assumptions.
So, if Moses happens to stir a desire for a religion that is in many ways quite the opposite of what he preaches, perhaps you should look into Unitarian Universalism. The fellowship in Fayetteville is at the intersection of Cleveland and Oakland streets, and services are at 11 a.m. every Sunday.

Feel free to join us, I'm the president, which reveals my ulterior motive in writing this article. But as a Unitarian Universalist, I'm free to regard that motive as just, no matter what Bowman thinks of it.
