“Find something to do for God with your life. Even if you don’t know how to serve Him, you can serve God as a bad example”. Kent Hovind, quoted in a 9/20/16 article by George B. Lujack “The Late, Great Kent Hovind; Kent Hovind’s Fall From Grace”
Let’s hit the ground running with this one: Theodore Valentine Valenzuela II AKA Theo V. Valenzuela AKA Theodore Valentine, AKA Racer-X AKA Mr. Wilson, a 31-year-old man, has a website with his wife Lenae, called Lies of The Devil.com. His logo features a blood-red V in the middle of the word devil. I suppose this V represents the Victory sign which Theodore often displays with his hands in his videos, or perhaps it features the V’s in his full name. At any rate, the V is centered in the word deVil.The Who Is Record for this domain gives as its creation date, August 7, 2016. The Registry Registrant ID is Theodore Valentine. The Registrant Organization is AZMMVP, with address of 44823 W. Desert Garden Rd, Maricopa, AZ 85139. The Registry Admin. and also the Registry Tech ID is Theodore Valentine, and the Admin. Organization is Lion of Judah Ministry, LLC, of 1111 Private RD, Private City, DC 11111.
There are several falsehoods in this registration.
*The legal name of Theodore Valentine is Theodore Valentine Valenzuela, II.
*The address given for AZMMVP, Arizona Multi Media Video Production, AKA Az Media Production, legally belonged to another party on the date of this registration, as Theo had sold his house at that address on April 26, 2016, more than 3 months earlier to Stanley and Cara Foster, for $162,000.
*Lion of Judah Ministry, LLC was not a legally registered LLC until December 5, 2016, four months after this website was registered. I looked in the Arizona and Florida and District of Columbia Secretary of State records and found nothing; however, Lion of Judah Ministry LLC ID#377-948 was formed on 12/5/2016 and registered in Alabama, by Theodore Valenzuela of 3651 Woodley Road, Apt. 2, Montgomery, AL 36116. The address given for the website registration as 1111 Private Road, Private City, DC 11111 is a false location.
What we are looking at today is a bad example of a Christian ministry, which serves to undermine Biblical truth as the lies of the deVil. The subtitle to this website heading is Ripping Souls Away From Satan and Delivering Them To Jesus Christ; a dramatic, but theologically unsound representation of a Christian ministry’s work in preaching salvation by faith alone.
When I first began to take a look at this website, I found this resume:Note the use of a misleading version of his birth name. Others have questioned this, and he has yet to prove that he has legally changed it. Why is this a problem? Because it makes it more difficult for others to discover if he has lived a life of integrity or whether he is trying to cover over past indiscretions. Theodore implicates his wife in this falsehood, because her surname would not be Valentine, but Valenzuela.
Theo does not identify where or when he obtained any degrees in investigative journalism and media production. He did at one time have a webpage and an active Facebook page for his business, Arizona Multimedia and Video Production. He describes his business as providing, “web design, development, e-commerce and programming”, as well as “photography, video production, and editing services, flash animation and graphic design, CD and DVD duplication, social networking and media integration” since 2008.
The Subtle Takeover of the Kent Hovind Vindicators
Theodore Valentine Valenzuela, II was once touted as Racer-X, the anonymous, behind the scenes defender of Kent Hovind, whose voice can be heard on Rudy Davis’ and Doug Hagmann’s internet broadcasts.
On January 24, 2015 Free Kent Hovind.com was created using the Registrant name of #FreeKent Hovind with the false address of 111 N. Free Kent Hovind Campaign, Anonymous City, state of BC, and zip code of 70101, which is for Costa Rica. The Registry Administrator was Theodore Valentine, of Lion of Judah Ministries, LLC. As noted in the beginning of this post, this LLC was registered in Alabama on December 5, 2016, 22 months after this website was created.
After Theodore had departed from the shadows of the Kent Hovind Alabama compound, a message was publically posted on a Facebook page called 2 Peter 3, which would indicate that his departure as technical expert, left some matters unfinished. Kent Hovind wrote, “Theodore why are you using my name and reputation to promote your new business without my permission after you left and refused to give Steve the passwords to our web site? You did great damage to us for no reason. I trusted you brother and I feel that you betrayed me and the cause of Christ. You do not represent me- Kent Hovind nor 2 peter3. Please call Steve and give him all the passwords and stop using my name or reputation in any of your promo or advertising like this. I pray your efforts to serve our Lord bare fruit but you chose to leave CSE and DAL under bad terms and need to make it right before God can bless. You need to fix this brother.” (This message was documented by Robert Baty on a 2/8/2017 post on his website kehvrlb.com.)
Another source of anecdotal history of Theodore Valenzuela is found in a June 25, 2017 Rudy Davis’ Lone Star 1776 YouTube broadcast, The Video I hoped didn’t have to be made. Davis claimed that he had worked very closely with Theodore over a period of several months, up until the July 8, 2015 release of Kent Hovind from prison.
Rudy Davis explained, “The history is that Randall Boaz Owens who was Kent Hovind’s trusted cell mate, I guess, had made a promise to Kent, I don’t know the details, but when he went to start this webpage called 2 Peter 3, well Randall did that, and we were, you know I had taken 6 months off work, and we were working with Randall and thousands of people across this country, maybe tens of thousands of people, to make noise and shine light about Kent Hovind being unjustly incarcerated and facing an additional 20 years in prison for mailing a letter. Well, Theodore comes out of nowhere and calls me up and of course he runs a business, he has a business that makes websites. That’s his, that’s his job is to build websites, so he had experienced, a you know, in that area, and we put him in contact with Randall Boaz Owens and they got together and eventually somehow Theodore finagled his way to take over the whole website and Randall was out of it and in hindsight that was a very bad decision and it probably, I somehow contributed to that because I thought it was very, like a blessing from God to get someone with experience to build this website; but in hindsight we should have stuck with Randall Boaz Owens because he was the trusted individual…”
2 Peter 3.com was created April 16, 2011 by Randall Owens, which shows that this former cell mate of Kent Hovind was interested in this project some four years before Hovind was finally released from prison. Presently, search engines redirect this address to Dr. Dino.com. The original website was titled, Kent Hovind Official Website/2 Peter 3, Creation Flood End Times.
The Hypocrite Who Attempted A Take-Over Attempt of the ministry of Exposing Kent Hovind
On April 20,2017, in a Lies of The DeVil YouTube video, Theodore Valenzuela published Part I-Kent Hovind Official: Fraud, Huckster, and False Prophet which has now seen almost 12,000 views with 3.4 thousand subscribers. At the 4:15 mark, Theodore says, “I literally believed that this guy was telling the truth wholeheartedly and when I believed it, I prayed to God and God just put it in my heart to just do everything I could to help this guy and I put 4 or 5 months of my life on hold without building my business- everything on hold- to try to help this individual. I spent tireless hours so did a lot of people but I helped him form his defense. I, I helped form the defense he used in court that got him out of prison, OK?”
At the 5.23 mark, Theodore continues, “he’s going to come out and he’s going to call me a drug addict, I don’t know why he might call me a drug addict, I don’t have no idea; he might call me a drug addict…”
A drug addict? Perhaps this might be the reason?
Back on October 26, 2012, a Theodore Valentine Valenzuela II, was charged in Pinal County, Arizona, where his home was located, with resisting arrest, and the use of physical force on a peace officer while being questioned for a DUI offense. Probation followed, ending in 2014.
Is it believable that Theodore, who will not disclose where or when he got his “degrees in investigative journalism and media production”, provided the legal defense to get Kent Hovind out of the legal scrape he was in, at the beginning of 2015? Was Theo really so self-sacrificial for a noble cause, that he left his business in Arizona to flounder, to come out east to Pensacola, to help Kent Hovind? Or did Theodore have something else in mind? After Hovind’s release from prison, he was not permitted to be around felons on his DAL property. How was it helping Kent Hovind to meet his probation requirements, for Theodore to hide his face and identity as he stayed on the CSEM properties, just after he had finished his own probation in Arizona?
Theodore Valenzuela, Board of Directors Secretary of CSEM, Inc. 2/23/2016
Well apparently, Theodore so impressed Ernest Land and Kent Hovind with his credentials that when the Articles for Incorporation for Creation Science Evangelism Ministries, Inc. were filed in Florida on February 23, 2016, Theodore Valenzuela was made a Director and Officer, serving as Secretary. His address was noted as 29 Cummings Road, Pensacola, FL 32464, one of Kent Hovind’s former properties.
In an article, Liability of the Directors of a Nonprofit Corporation, Elizabeth Rayne of Legal Zoom addresses the Board of Director’s Secretary position, by noting, that there is a process called piercing the veil which allows the court to address potential liability…”It can occur if the board does not keep appropriate records or minutes, hold required meetings, or follow the correct voting procedures for Board Resolutions or Actions”.
Is it reasonable to believe that Theodore Valenzuela, who has a proven propensity for falsifying registrations with false information, hid his face in photos, and hid his legal identify, had faithfully performed his legal and fiduciary responsibilities as Secretary of CSEM in Florida? I am not sure on what date Theodore was removed from that position. On July 24, 2017, months after Theodore V. Valenzuela moved out of the Alabama Dinosaur Adventure Land compound, the Florida corporation became inactive, and was replaced by Creation Science Evangelism Ministries, Inc., registered in Alabama as entity ID #397-041.
Kent Hovind’s Perpetual Money Machine Ministry
Recently, Robert Baty noted that Guidestar had published two details from a 990 for CSEM,Inc. EIN 81-1424226 showing receipts of $680,103 and assets of $456,048. Despite all of Kent Hovind’s problems, he still is able to attract donations for his new enterprise, which may explain why so many persons from questionable backgrounds have hovered around the celebrity of Dr. Dino, whose claim to fame was to obtain a PHD from a diploma mill, based on a notoriously badly written PHD thesis, which became available to the public by Wikileaks, of all places.
The Lamentations of Theo for Kent Hovind’s Punk Dude Hypocrisy, but Not For His Own
Continuing with the April 7, 2017 Part I of Theo’s expose of Kent Hovind as a fraud, at the 5.34 mark, he continues his lament about his part in the Kent Hovind campaign, saying, “I gave a lot of my life to help him get out of prison. I helped form his defense, raised a lot of money for him, on top of other people, to get him out of prison and then went and then and I actually helped, went to Pensacola, sold everything I had eventually, I might get to this, eventually. So everything I had to help him build CSE on lies, OK? So, it’s my word against his. It’s my word. The guy who helped him and did everything to help him get back up there. My word against his, OK?”
“I just understand that, um and in fact people that are trying to expose Kent, they’re more of a Christian than Kent Hovind who say he’s, at you know um Lord help me, because honestly, like I’ve gone through times I was just so angry, I was so angry and, and, and the people the people that most of those people are good people, most people that go there are good people that want to help the Lord and go to DAL to help the Lord, people that like Kent Hovind, they don’t know he’s a fraud. They watch him on YouTube and they think that, that’s who he really is, they see his DVD’s, they think that, that’s who he really is. (Shouting) ANYBODY that gets to know Kent Hovind turns on him, not because they’re Judas Iscariot or whatever the case may be, because they know he’s a fraud and I’m gonna go piece by piece into this and I’m telling you, I can’t, him, you’re a punk, you’re a punk, you’re a spoiled brat who your parents gave everything to you, OK.”
“You’re, they might have taught you all this, others but you’re a punk dude, OK. You’re not going to fool me. You’re not going to punk me. I know that you thought I was just some kid or whatever the case may be who was lying about what I did with the Free Kent Hovind Campaign, and maybe lied about my history, or I don’t know what you think, dude, you’re a narcissist, you’re a punk and here is the thing, I, you are such an evil bastard, you were such an evil person and I hope that people wake up and they figure it out who you are. You have no idea how many times I ranted and raved to people who are trying to call me and saying, Oh, just need to forgive him….”
(10.28) “people at DAL, you know, it’s a cult, OK..”
After defaming Robert Baty, Jim Lott, Randy Dunn and Peter J. Reilly because they confronted the “Hovindicators” with the factual realities of Kent Hovind’s legal problems, Theo now tells us that Kent Hovind is a Tax Protestor and that he is the Exposer of Kent Hovind!
(10.52) “Kent Hovind literally broke the law…he says he’s not a tax protestor, but I’m going to show you proof that he’s a tax protestor…I’m going to show you proof he’s a tax protestor…fooled big time that I didn’t dig deeper into this guy’s past…” (11.11) “I should have digged into his past. I would have never helped him get out of prison, never, never, never, never. I would have seen right through him, but here’s the thing, I’m a good person and I got fooled so…”
Let’s travel back in time through the Wayback Machine, where 101 pages of FreeKentHovind.com have been preserved. It was on November 21, 2016 that Robert Baty on his kehvrlb.com website had commented that this website had disappeared. Here is an example of an article, which I presume Theo wrote as an investigative reporter.This article was written April 24, 2016. The unnamed author, presumably Theo, because he liked to hide his true identity at that time, has an interesting anecdote about the effect which Kent Hovind’s material had upon one mass murderer. It reads, “Jeffrey Dahmer, a mass murderer and cannibal, admits that evolution cheapens life and led him to destruction. Thank God he was saved right before he died. Jeffrey Dahmer was led to Jesus Christ via Creation Science Evangelism material. Dr. Kent Hovind was told that his “non-crime” was worse than rape…He has helped countless people turn away rom the psychopathic tendencies our public education system breeds and was treated like a monster…”.
Whereas heaven rejoices when one sinner repents, it seems these sensationalists prefer a questionable tale about Jeffrey Dahmer who was delighted to discover a new legal defense to explain his murdering lusts: “the theory of evolution made me do it! defense” Thank God Kent Hovind faked a PHD thesis to become Dr. Dino!
Robert Baty is one person who has argued that the quote about a judge saying that Kent Hovind’s crimes were “worse than rape” was a falsehood; one among many, which are part of the false legal narrative of the defenders of Kent Hovind.
The Wayback Machine Archive of Free Kent Hovind.com shows the following page, which is one of several, attacking the persons who had made a concerted effort to counter the falsehoods which were being publicized by the Free Kent Hovind Campaign.
Some of the accusations made by the Free Kent Hovind website against those who were exposing Kent Hovind as a fraud (i.e.Robert Baty, Jim Lott, Randy Dunn and Peter J. Reilly), included: harassment, intimidation, obsessed criminal internet stalking, malice, being crazy, dangerous terrorists, paid government agents, stalking children and teenagers, causing emotional and financial distress, making false claims, laughing at them, and making “multiple death threats towards Theodore, who is helping CSE Ministries”.
Now that Theodore is claiming to be revealing the fraud of Kent Hovind, it is interesting that he got rid of his website, Free Kent Hovind which documented that he was very well aware of the facts and evidence which supported the finding of the court that Kent Hovind was a tax protestor. He knew what the facts were, because he attempted to shut up the voices of those who were exposing the evidence of Kent Hovind’s fraud. And now that Racer-X has come out of hiding, and attempting to play the hero who warns others about Kent Hovind, it does not appear that he has publicly apologized to those who spoke the truth and were defamed by the Kent Hovind Defenders.
In this post on Theodore Valentine Valenzuela on Robert Baty’s website, it was noted that on February 9, 2017 that Baty had written Theodore, saying, “If you cannot even admit, clearly, openly, unequivocally to your important history with Kent Hovind, there is likely little else we might properly advance by the way of conversation in an effort to explore just what that history involved in all its relevant aspects and your role as a “star witness” regarding Kent’s antics since his release from prison.” He then quotes Theodore regarding Theo’s desire to be left alone to pursue his new ministry, and notes that Theo had said, “I commend you in an effort to show the truth regarding who Kent Hovind really is”.
That last crumb thrown to Robert Baty in a personal email does not undo the scathing accusations which had been thrown against Baty and others who had taken a public stand for the truth against the “false legal narrative” which had been promoted by Theodore Valenzuela and others. That statement does not represent a proper apology and admission of wrongdoing for covering over the fraud of Kent Hovind.
The Ministry of Offering Free Book Downloads that anyone can already get for free from Amazon Books
One of the ministries of Theodore and Lenae Valentine Valenzuela’s Lion of Judah Ministry, LLC is the website LaymansBookstore.com. On this site, they have been displaying an increasing inventory of free books to download, much like they do at Amazon.com. The book which they have been featuring for awhile, which one can purchase for $49.95 is shown below.The author of Mysteries of The Scriptures Revealed: Shattering The Deceptions Within Mainstreams Christianity Deciphering and Revealing End Times Prophecies Making A Straight Path for the End times Saints is George B. Lujack.
George Lujack, who has written articles at the Cowger Nation website, is friends with Steve Quayle who had quoted him as being influential in his decision to promote the cause of Kent Hovind on the February 10, 2015 show of the Hagmann Report. [Update as of 2/20/2018: George Lujack has commented on this article, stating “I do not know Steve Quayle. I never met him. I am not friends with him”. Because Mr. Lujack has provided this statement, the source of my comment that he and Steve Quayle had been friends in 2015 was derived from the transcript of the February 10, 2015 The Hagmann & Hagmann Report broadcast found in Exhibit A, document 82, of civil action no. 1:17-cv-00259-CB-SPB wherein Steve Quayle is speaking to Doug and Joe Hagmann. Steve Quayle says on line 68 states, “Our friend George Lujack writes….” as if he has personal familiarity with Mr. Lujack, as well as with his writings on Kent Hovind’s legal problems in 2015.]
Lujack says that he was raised a Lutheran but later he became a “non-denominational, biblical Christian”. He had been employed as a New York City police officer for 20 years, from 1987-2007, and an International police officer for the UN Task Force in Croatia and also in Kosovo on two separate occasions. He claims to be an “independent, non-ordained, Messianic minister”.
Promoting the Spurious Theologies of George Lujack and the Old School Armstrongians
It is curious that Theodore and Lenae are promoting Lujack’s book because as their Lies of The DeVil website “The Front Line in Spiritual Warfare” shows as part of their Statement of Faith: “We worship love, serve, and believe in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit-three persons that make up one God/Creator of all things.” In other words, they claim to believe in the Trinity. Lujack is not a Trinitarian.
Now one thing I know from my experience in the Independent Fundamental Baptist churches is that they concentrate on sound doctrine and also separation from those that hold beliefs that depart from what they have defined as sound doctrine. In the Mysteries of the Scriptures Revealed book which Theo and Lenae are selling for $49.95, George Lujack devotes a chapter on The False Doctrine of the Trinity: Why The Holy Spirit is Not a Person and also another chapter entitled, GOD: Triune or Biunial? Why are they selling an expensive book which espouses what most Christians would consider to be false doctrine?
George Lujack explains in his Introduction that he was influenced by Herbert W. Armstrong, and he complains about those who took over that ministry after Armstrong died. As I recall, those who took over did overturn many of Armstrong’s teachings, and brought this ministry back into what might be termed more traditional teachings, similar to the Baptists. But Lujack prefers the false teachings which Armstrong publicized during his lifetime.
Also, Theo has called Kent Hovind a fraud, and while Lujack has come out and expressed his dismay with Kent’s second marriage, he still promotes Kent Hovind in this book as “perhaps the greatest refuter of Evolution who has ever lived”. That statement is disturbing if true, for not only evolutionists, but other creationists have shown that Hovind does not display any depth of understanding of his own material.
The Desire to Have a Hand in Building Another Person’s Ministry, When Your Own is Built on The Lies of the DeVil
The other website of Theo’s, called Workers In Christ.net, reflects the aspect of the Lion of Judah Ministry, where Theo desires to counsel others on how to build their own ministries, based on his personal experiences. One of the things which Theo and Lenae have done recently was to travel to various cities and “evangelize” on the streets.
I looked at a few of the videos documenting his techniques and it is clear that he has not sought the wisdom of those who are experienced street preachers and evangelists. In Miami they were out walking the streets in darkness, which is very unnerving to others on the streets who probably think Theo is nuts or a potential robber. If you want others to engage in Christian conversation on the streets, it must be done in daylight or a well lighted protected area, so others feel safe in your presence. I looked at the Seattle street walking, which was done in daylight, and Theo’s asking total strangers if they liked DVD’s was not a good conversation starter. All I can say is that if a person wants that type of ministry, wisdom and commonsense needs to prevail, and if you lack that, stay home!
Rudy Davis Gives His Summation of Theodore
One cannot cover over past wrongdoing by creating a ministry which presents a new self image. It should be remembered that Theodore claimed that it was God that sent him to Kent Hovind, leaving behind his Arizona business to flounder. Then he was enraged when things did not go his way. But if God had sent him, why should he complain about the consequences of doing God’s will?
Perhaps Rudy Davis was right about Theo when he wrote Peter J. Reilly a letter which was reprinted on the ytmp.blogspot.com in an April 26, 2017 article, Theodore Valentine The Hovindicator With Buyer’s Remorse.In summary, it is difficult to persuade others of the truth of Christianity, if it has had no real impact on your own being.
