Does God love you?


There’s often a problem with Christians, is that often we feel our job performance dictates God’s emotional response to us.

Yes, as human beings, we struggle with our sin nature. Many of us often feel we disappoint God, and perhaps we do.

We wrestle with the knowledge of man’s depravity, and with the knowledge of how sin separated us from God.

If you are born again, here is an essential truth we need to grasp.

1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:1 (KJV)

This is a two part sentence, due to the construction in Greek. While we often get suspicious of heresy (no!!!!) and look suspiciously for signs whether someone is saved or not, too often we apply this to ourselves as well.

Any fundamentalist who has caught onto the fact there must be evidence of a changed life, also has struggled with the secret fear that, “My job performance is not good enough… I’m not saved.”

Well, it’s not our job performance that got us saved…

4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:4-10 (KJV)

Fundamentalists have caught onto the fact that there is going to be a judgment, several in fact! And that at the believer’s judgment, just after the Rapture, Jesus Christ is somehow going to look at you with those flaming eyes under white eyebrows (ever notice everyone who claims to have gone to heaven says Jesus has long brown hair? Yet the Bible says his hair is white…)

..and He’s going to ask with growing rage…” how did YOU get in here? There must be some mistake!!! Michael, toss them over the side…”

Romans 8:1 is a two part sentence.

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:1 (KJV)

The first part is, there is now therefore no condemnation to them. Part two has two endings. There’s a whole sermon in this one verse if any pastor is reading this, by the way.

Which are in Christ Jesus.

Are you saved? If not, take care of that now. It’s a simple matter. Salvation could NOT BE ANY EASIER. Understanding you are a sinner in need of salvation, repenting of your sins, asking Jesus Christ to save you, and then TRUSTING HIM TO DO THE REST.

It’s that simple. Goodness, you ought to spend some time looking at what people trapped in cults think they have to do to be saved. countless hours passing tracts or banging on doors, or having two sets of dinner plates, etc. It gets crazy.

Just trust Jesus Christ to do the rest.

Your sins separated you from God. Your sins caused an irreparable breach between you and God. Your sins offended God. Your very actions are tainted by your guilt. You cannot bridge that.

Only God can decide to forgive that, since He alone is sinless. So Jesus Christ put on human flesh and came down to pay our sin debt, to atone for our sins as the perfect offering. Really simple.

Who walk not after the flesh.

This is not a conditional statement. This is the passing down of a sentence.

For those of you who don’t understand how law works, it’s very simple. The law demands that one be found guilty or not guilty, or that the case will not be heard (dismissed).

however, we are all guilty. Punishment is then passed down. “Death. Your blood must be shed.” If we die without this punishment enacted while we live, we will go to Hell.

However, being full of sin, we cannot pay this penalty. So Jesus Christ paid it for us.

We sing the hymn, maybe thinking it’s a nice little hymn, but we rarely reflect on the beauty of the words..

Jesus paid it all

all to Him I owe

Sin had left a crimson stain

He washed it white as snow.

Think about that.

If the punishment in accordance with the judgment is paid, what is left? If someone is sentenced to sixty days in jail, and is released with no suspended time… what’s left to serve?

nothing. It’s served. It’s done.

Ended. The case is filed away. Can you be re-arrested for the offense? Nope. Can you be re-sentenced? It’s done. The punishment decreed was fulfilled.

So, you’re no longer guilty. You WERE guilty. You aren’t any more.

You walked according to the flesh. You realized you were guilty. You realized you would have to pay the price of your sin, which would result in your going to hell forever. But Jesus Christ died and you ACCEPTED HIS ATONEMENT, His free gift of salvation.

So, the last half of Romans 8:1, is the declaration of, “not guilty.” You don’t walk according to the flesh any more.

Sure, you struggle with sin. Ever struggled to keep from going under water? There’s some thrashing around there. Your sin nature is DYING, under the influence of the word of God. Under the influence of prayer. Under the influence of turning from the world. Under the influence of listening to God pleasing music, that worships God and not man. Under the influence of growing faith that cometh from hearing and from hearing the word of God. from fellowship in churches.

Who walk according to the spirit.

Not guilty! Can you imagine, going to court, KNOWING they’re going to order you to daily torture the REST OF YOUR EXISTENCE, and you get to court, the Judge calls you forward, and tells you, “your sentence has already been executed. You are free to go.”

You walk out in shock.

You head to do whatever you were guilty of before. Your cell phone starts to ring. It’s the same Judge calling you.

“That’s probably not a good idea.”

Ever have the Holy Spirit say that to you? You just get that feeling like, “I should be going to church today, instead of skipping it to watch sports.”

or you’re about to say something, and the sudden overwhelming feeling comes over you, you shouldn’t do that?

Same thing.

You’re walking according to the spirit.

4 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: 5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead. 6 For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. 1 Peter 4:4-6 (KJV)

God KNOWS you struggle with sin. God UNDERSTANDS that. And He knows you will not always heed the Spirit.

But let me tell you, that’s one of the evidences of being saved, that you FELT THE SPIRIT SAY NO!!!

You are not guilty. You are justified.

Justified is the opposite of condemned. The Righteousness of Jesus Christ is imputed unto you.

Yeah, think about that. The angels fall in worship of Christ. Doesn’t sound very thrilling, the constant singing of praise to Christ throughout eternity? If so, then either you need to go back to point one and make sure you’re saved…

…or you just haven’t grasped these facts.

Jesus Christ gave you His righteousness. In the eyes of God you have never sinned. Repent of your sins, confess them, ask God ten seconds later what your sins were.

“don’t remember. Don’t care.”

I’m sure Jesus Christ will gently scold me at the believer’s judgment, maybe address my meanness and my temper. I can be mean sometimes, I know it. I try and repent of it. But I’m aggressive, and my words can sometimes be simply hurtful. I try. But I’m going to struggle with that for the rest of my physical life, until death or the Rapture.

We walk according to the spirit, if we are not guilty. Sure, not all the time, but hey… that’s what the bible says. If we belong to Jesus Christ, we have been found not guilty. We have justification and imputed righteousness. Jesus Christ walked not according to the flesh, but according to the spirit.

So, we do too in the eyes of God.

Does God love you?

Sure!

Do you deserve it?

He doesn’t care if you deserve it or not.

17 The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. Zephaniah 3:17 (KJV)

Does that sound like God loves you?

now maybe you’ll understand why randomly in heaven, the host is moved to break out in song to God.

You have no idea how much God loves you.

it’s not performance oriented. He just loves you.

Roman Catholicism Answered #30 – some objections answered


I’ve mentioned before there was so much wrong with Roman Catholicism, that I almost didn’t know where to start. In the beginning of this blog, I used to actually have a list at the beginning of each post telling you all the things wrong with each topic, and all the points I’d answered. With Roman Catholicism, the post was so long you had to page down three times to get to the article.

Because it’s been months since I began the series, let me first state I demolished the RCc doctrine of the Magisterium. When I insist that all Roman Catholic apologists read my articles first, they always ignore that requirement. How do I know? Because many of them turn to the Magisterium, which is the entire reason I dealt with the Magisterium first.

The next tactic is to claim I’m “Catholic bashing.” Let’s get the terminology correct – it is Roman Catholic, not Catholic. I do not believe in an invisible, Universal church, as I’ve written before – I know many cultists like to blame everything from Easter to toothbrushes on the Roman Catholic church, but the concept of a Universal church WAS invented by the RCc. When the Bible speaks of a church, it is 99 times out of 108 referring to a local, visible institution. And it’s probable that the other 9 uses conform to that reading. Else why did Paul, John, & Peter all address their letters to the “church which is at Rome” “at Corinth…” Why not “To the church…”?

Answer: Because the correct word is “kingdom of God” or “kingdom of Heaven” when talking about all the believers as a group.

The Catholic Church is the most attacked church both from within the church and from outside of the church. — Catholic Vs. Protestant Bible Study E-Sword module

Answer… Yes. That perfectly explains the Crusades and the Inquisition. If by your statement, you mean that the Roman Catholic church cult is the most attacked cult, then that answer would be false.

There are entire RCc documents that are nothing but attacks on any interpretation which conforms to the Bible, meaning Baptists and to some extent, Protestants. The Council of Trent was a violent ideological attack on Biblical Christianity (although aimed primarily at Protestants, it also was aimed at Baptists). The RCc church constantly physically tortured and murdered Christians and Jews, in the name of religion. That has never been repented of, decried, or apologized for by Rome. Instead, those that were put to death for the crime of attempting to kill the King of England were canonized.

Many Protestants will say that Catholics do not know their Bible, do not believe in Bible studies. Some will go so far as to say that the Church does not allow, or discourages Bible study. — Catholic Vs. Protestant Bible Study E-Sword module

Yes, I know. I guess it’s wrong of us to quote official Catholic doctrine, but okay for you. Like it or not, the Vatican has forbidden any reading of the bible. They TOLERATE reading of the Bible. As recently as the 19th century, a Canadian Roman Catholic Priest wrote a book on his experiences in the Roman “church”. He reported seeing a bookshelf as he was being trained for Holy Orders that contained forbidden books… and one was the Bible. He also reported that he took an oath never to read nor interpret the Bible without the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic church to tell him the interpretation of it.

The Roman cult officially forbid the private reading of Scripture at the Council of Trent. Jerome and Augustine can say what they like – the RCc considers itself above the teachings of its founders. Question: is the Pope fallible or not? You say no. Well, if the Pope declares it wrong to read the Bible for yourself, BY yourself, then it’s as if God spoke it, right? Isn’t that what the Roman cult teaches? Then you’ve got a major conflict now, in that some popes forbid the reading of the Bible – look it up, it can be found in the council of Trent – and some encouraged it, as long as it’s an “Approved” Bible.

Didn’t Roman Catholics, on the orders of Rome, burn “Protestant” Bibles? I’ve got to say, Roman Catholics are as bad as Calvinists when it comes to generalizations. Calvinists insist that anyone that disagrees with them is Armininanist, no matter how many times you prove it to them they’re wrong. Roman Catholics have a habit of calling every Christian a “protestant”, which is a biased and EXTREMELY flawed view of History. Baptists are not Protestants.

One of the biggest insults was to call us by the name of one of our biggest Protestant persecutors, when flogging Baptists – Inquisitors called it “painting Calvin’s back” when they’d flog Baptists.

since Inquistitors would write down every scream, moan or shriek of tortured Baptists, try this – go back to the Vatican library and ask to see the transcripts of “inquisitions” of Baptists. Look at what they would shout when you referred to them as Calvin? “I am a Baptist, not a Calvinist!”

600 years later, you’re still calling Baptists “Protestants”.

“After nearly 20 yrs of study, and being in solid Bible-teaching churches, I approached my pastor. He is a nationally syndicated radio preacher. After service one day I asked him the million dollar question. “Which Bible commentary and which “Systematic Theology” should I get, so I know my understanding of all the Scriptures are ‘correct?’ (I had no idea that the only correct answer to that is the Catholic Church.) He looked at me and laughed his signature laugh. I was serious. I wanted to know. He basically said that he picks and chooses what he agrees with from several different sources. Okay,… that works for him, but not for me. That would basically make him THE POPE.”

Answer: This very statement showed that this person had lied to themselves for 20 years and thought they were a Christian. how can you claim to have been a Christian for 20 years, and not understood the simple fact that you are required by God to READ THE BIBLE FOR YOURSELF?

3 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him; Matthew 12:3 (KJV)

5 Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless? Matthew 12:5 (KJV)

4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, Matthew 19:4 (KJV)

31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, Matthew 22:31 (KJV)

10 And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner: Mark 12:10 (KJV)

26 And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? Mark 12:26 (KJV)

3 And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and they which were with him; Luke 6:3 (KJV)

You are REQUIRED TO READ the Bible for yourself.

So, how does it make me the Pope, a position not ordained in the Bible, not commanded to nor referenced in a positive way… if I read Adam Clarke say something in a Commentary that I know is wrong, and dismiss it?

The commentaries of the bible are written by men. Sometimes men are bound by the thinking of their denominations. Adam Clarke advocated one or two things his denomination taught, but the Bible forbids.

Should I BLINDY accept that as Biblical truth, when I know for a fact it is wrong?

some commentaries equate the Jewish commandment of circumcision with the unScriptural habit of sprinkling babies. That’s completely unBiblical. But it can be found in Protestant commentaries, because these are MEN writing them, not like the Bible.

commentaries aid our understanding of the Bible, but they are not the EQUIVALENT of the Bible.

Roman Catholic doctrine elevates Roman Catholic teaching ABOVE the Bible.

It’s like Judaism. If the Rabbis say one thing and the Bible another, who do observant Jews follow? The Rabbis. “You shall follow the majority opinion.” The Rabbis teach. “Do not follow a multitude to do evil” is what the Bible commands.

If you cannot read the Bible for yourself, you will be at the mercy of every false teacher – like Pope Francis, the “pope of hope” – that comes along.

If you went to a church for 20 years, and could not grasp this simple fact, you were deluded. You were still a Roman Catholic, and never a Christian.

If you think you cannot read the bible for yourself, and cannot understand the words, then you are not only deluded, but definitely unSaved.

24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. John 5:24 (KJV)

Can you understand those words? “verily” means “truth” or “truly.” “I say unto you…” means “I say unto you.” “he that heareth my word” means… “He that heareth my word”.

It’s not complicated. Give it a try.

If you sat in a church for 20 years and did not read your Bible for yourself, then you were lying to yourself the entire time.

“okay, that works for him but not for me.”

WHY NOT??? CAN’T YOU UNDERSTAND ENGLISH??? THEN GET A BIBLE IN YOUR NATIVE TONGUE!!!

“but it’s not translated from the Latin!!!”

News flash – the BIBLE WAS NOT WRITTEN IN THE LATIN. Who CARES how Jerome translated the Greek and Hebrew? WHO CARES????

READ THE BIBLE THAT IS TRANSLATED FROM THE GREEK AND HEBREW MANUSCRIPTS THAT CHRISTIANITY HAS ALWAYS USED, AND DON’T WORRY ABOUT ANY QUESTIONABLE TRANSLATION IN LATIN!

So, let’s try this…. I want you to read Romans for yourself. By yourself. Do not consult any Catholic commentaries. Don’t go asking your pastor what it means. Read Romans and tell me if it sounds like it’s saying you must be saved by faith? That all you have to do is believe?

The roman Catholic church pronounces damnation on anyone who believes it. So tell me, is this consistent with the Bible or not?

If it’s not… then you need to leave the Roman Catholic cult as soon as possible. Get saved. Go to a church, a Bible believing one. And write to your old Roman Catholic pastor, and let him know that you’ve left, and why.

You might get him saved, too.

“Stop Lying About It!”


While I can still legally talk about the Bible, here’s a good continuation of my post on Textual Criticism. This is Will Kinney, who I mentioned in that article. Read and be educated! What answer do you give? Do you believe there’s an inspired, inerrant Bible out there? Which is it? Most Christian Bible teachers out there literally do not believe it. Should you be listening to them if they do not believe the bible is without error?

2 plus 2 equals 4.


Truth… This article by Ray Pritchard says the same thing I’ve been saying – you can be sincere, and sincerely wrong.

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

“The issue is not our emotions or our preferences. The issue is truth. Sincerity in religious matters is never enough. We do not doubt the sincerity of those who follow Islam or Hinduism. We admire them for their dedication to what they believe. But sincerity only matters when it is applied to the proper object. You can be sincerely wrong and you will still be wrong. You can sincerely drink rat poison and you will be sincerely dead. Believing the wrong thing doesn’t make it right. All truth is narrow. Years ago we all learned that 2 + 2 = 4. It doesn’t equal 5 or 3, no matter how sincere you are.” Ray Pritchard 

1 Corinthians 5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

The New Calvinism?


I occasionally check out the “recommended blogs” on my reader. It’s brought to my attention more than once fellow truth-warriors, doing a bang up job of contending for the faith.

It’s also brought to my attention the struggles of an autistic Christian, who not only has to contend with the bewildering struggle of going through life with autism, but the struggle of dealing with some of the most hurtful people in the world, your fellow Christians. Reading that blog has been sobering, the outright descriptions of hurt and pain.

But more often then not, it provides food and fuel for rants. Today I discovered a recommended blog “followed by people you’ve liked” or however wordpress puts that statement.

I kind of doubt that anyone whose blogs I read liked ANY posts on that blog. The first article was “Why I created a Twitter account for John Calvin.”

Okay, right away I know where you’re coming from. Immediately.  You’re a MacArthurite, who also has found some R. C. Sproul and C. S. Lewis and doesn’t see the conflicts AT ALL between what they preach and what you believe, you’re just in love with their eloquence and fiery passion for the Bible, whether incorrect or not.

I’ll state that when I got well and truly saved a few years ago (wow, I can’t believe it was that many years ago…)  I had a Christian recommend John MacArthur. I think I ended up downloading probably 300 sermons right away, and we began listening to them every night, for quite some time. It was good to hear Johnny Mac rebuking false teachers, because heaven knows, there’s so many of them.

It was Good to hear Johnny Mac urge people to learn sound doctrine, and to criticize people who did not care at all about what sound doctrine was.

At the time, I had no idea that to a Calvinist, the term “Sound doctrine” means an in depth study of TULIP theology, and to discover whether you were a supralapsarianist or not. You know, those things that only Calvinists seem to care about – the issue of whether Adam was predestined to sin or not? bottom line, he sinned.

I thank God that He brought me to a standard Evangelical church first. It opened my eyes to the sleepwalk-iness of the average Christian church. Then the Lord brought me to an independent Baptist Ruckmanite-Pearlite-Riplingerite church, where I discovered that A). Independent Baptist is not a denomination and B). Many IFB churches are secret cults and that some of the pastors in it are cult leaders.

I went to the Southern Baptist Convention church because I almost felt driven there, but I keep seeing news items from the SBC where I must come to the conclusion that a large number of the movers and shakers of that convention are wolves.

I say all this to set the stage for the fact that I’ve attended an IFB seminary, and like the Pastor who taught there, I am dedicated to the Biblical truth, no matter where it leads.

I discovered very early on in my listening to John Macarthur that predestination is based upon foreknowledge. John Calvin DOES believe in Double Predestination, because he says so – but he also believed in the free will to choose salvation. The two stands contradict each other.

David Cloud has spent a GREAT DEAL of time trying to understand Calvinism. David Cloud has honestly spent a great deal of time investigating Calvinism AND Pentecostalism.  He too vowed to follow the LORD wherever the Biblical truth led. He intensely investigated both, and concluded that both Pentecostalism and Calvinism contradict the Bible.

David Cloud reports that Calvin contradicts himself over and over again in his Institutes.

It’s like this – you are predestined, or you are not. You cannot be predestined to heaven, and still need to obey the Gospel. If predestination as taught in the TULIP theology is what it is, then you’d be predestined and there’s nothing you can do about it. You’d be predestined to heaven or hell.

R. C. Sproul goes so far as to say God delights in His predestination of sinners to Hell.

That’s not what I read in my Bible. My Bible makes it clear that you must CHOOSE to accept Jesus Christ. In Seminary, we did everything but rip the pages from our Bibles, we were so deep in study on it. This issue of predestination was something we were required to examine, and ask ourselves if this is what the Bible says. The classes made it abundantly clear that it was not what the Bible said. I am forever free of any doubts or questioning on Calvinism. It is not Biblical. If it was Biblical, then… what are we to do with the Romans Road? With john 3:16 and John 3:3? What are we to do with all the “If any man” or “whosoever” or “choose life” or…. there’s so many verses that speak to this, that we must CHOOSE – and nobody will be rejected.

I think the last moment for me,  before Seminary, was a Q&A with John Macarthur where someone had asked if anyone will pray to God for Eternal LIfe and be told no? That’s the kind of question that can only be found in a Lordship salvation,  4.5 count Calvinist church. You’d NEVER hear that question in a Baptist church.

There are some Calvinist churches that have joined the Southern Baptist Convention. And the 5Marks ministry is dedicated to subverting Southern Baptist churches to become Calvinist. Once they become Calvinist, they cease to be Baptist. The TULIP theology was never preached or believed on by the Waldenses, Albigenses, Donatists, Catharists, or other ancient Baptists. It did not become an issue until Calvinists left the Calvinist denominations and joined Baptist churches, and began the process of subverting. Then they practice historic revisionism by attempting to portray Calvinism as if it’s something that Baptists have always held to.

I know, I got into that argument (while desperately trying to avoid it) with the same Christian who recommended MacArthur to me. He attempted to portray my theology as Armenian, which I patiently explained time and again I was not Armenian, nor Calvinist- I was Baptist in theology. The words made absolutely no sense to him, When I protested that the Waldenses and Albigenses did not teach ANY points of TULIP, his response was an immediate “Well, they also practiced Paedo-Baptism, which I despise.”

Huh. with that one objection, he made it clear he’d never studied the Waldensians or the Albigensians, or the Petro-Brussians or the Catharists, or the Donatists, or… He was just arguing.

Friends, there is an unbroken chain going from the Baptist to the Anabaptists to the Waldenses to the Albigenses to the Catharists to the Donatists to the 1st century churches to the Apostles to Jesus Christ.  Individual movements are destroyed by persecution, the survivors scatter to other areas to survive, and new groups arise. Sometimes some of the groups slide into apostasy, as did one of the groups of Donatists. But the others did not, and it continues.

The point is, there have been people since 95 AD who have sworn to follow the Bible as their only rule of faith and practice, to follow God wherever He leads us. So that dismisses the claims of Calvinists that Baptists have “always  believed in predestination.”

Getting back to the blog, the second article that blew my mind was a letter to the false teacher of Mars Hill,  Mark Driscoll. He is a foul mouthed preacher. He followed corrupt business practices. All through his ministry, claims arose of his temper, his greed, and even allegations of sexual misconduct. To my knowledge, many of these allegations have not been proven, but the few allegations of financial misconduct destroyed an empire. Considering who set up that empire in the first place (Rob Bell), I think we needed to seriously question ANYTHING to do with Mark Driscoll.

The blog had an open letter to Driscoll praising him for what he’d done.

Really. Think about that. You’re praising a man that had a foul mouth, and preached on things best left out of the pulpit of God. If Driscoll is saved, then he’s going to have a lot of explaining to do for many of his sermons.

I think as I read that “open letter”, I had to plug my ears to keep my brain from exploding out of my head.

This is the New Calvinism. You like who the New Calvinist teachers like, without question. One New Calvinist teacher preaches C. S. Lewis nonstop, and so, New Calvinists fondly read and quote the teachings of a pagan Roman Catholic who questioned the Bible and did not believe that Jesus Christ’s death atoned for sin.

Really?

The New Calvinist embraces every teacher that calls themself New Calvinist, like R. C. Sproul, whether or not they’re 5 point, 4 point, or even 7 point like one New Calvinist teacher jokes that he is.

Whatever happened to discernment? Whatever happened to reading the Bible for yourself? Whatever happened to “thus sayeth the Lord?”

If I can read my Bible and find that it plainly does not teach Calvinism, why can’t you?

Throw away your Reform books. Throw away your C. S. Lewis. Throw away your “Institutes”.

Read your Bible for ONE YEAR without resorting to Calvinist crutches, and tell me at the end if you still believe in Calvinism or not?

as of tomorrow…


Starting tomorrow, it may be illegal for Christians in the US to share their faith online anymore. This will be the result of the Barak Obama “Net Neutrality” legislation, unless it is stopped.

The questions you need to ask yourself, if you’re not a Christian and congratulating yourself right now is this:

Why is it always the Christians that this administration is always targeting? Why is one religion given a pass by the administration, while Christianity is always had laws passed against us?

We cannot speak.

We cannot conduct business without being forced to comply with laws that violate our faith.

Were the US to pass laws against Hindus in this way, many of you would be up in arms over the illegal nature and unfairness of it.

Maybe the reason is because this administration, and those high up in it, are evil?

Maybe the reason is is because Christianity is not a religion, but the truth?

What will you say when they begin rounding up Christians and arresting them for the crime of being Christian? Will you protest then?

Trust me, when they begin to legislate what you can say, next is what you can think.

And they won’t stop with us… they’ll be coming for you next.

This age is ending soon. Jesus Christ, the one many of you routinely blaspheme, is coming soon.

And when the Christians disappear, you have only seven years left to make a decision.
