Walking The Tightrope


Being a fundamentalist today is like walking a tightrope. You’ve got to make it past Lordship Salvation without getting wrapped up in it.. You’ve got to make sure you’re a dispensationalist. You’ve got to avoid Ruckmanism/Pearlism/Hyles-ism/ Riplinger-ism. You’ve got to avoid THeological liberalism.

Every teaching tool you turn to, you’ve got to be careful. Many commentaries, dictionaries, encyclopedias, harmonies, teaching tools of all kinds, are written by theological liberals.

Logos is the most serious Bible study tool I’ve ever owned. But I’ve got to wade through interviews of people who’ve uncovered “Startling new discoveries on salvation” on the homepage – and what it boils down to is, it’s a heretic with a new book Logos is triyng to sell. Logos runs it by their resident scholars, who are theological liberals, and they see nothing wrong with it, because they don’t believe ether.

Accordance is written by a woman who’s devised a great study tool, but it’s clear from her blog entries on the Accordance web site that she too is caught up in THeological Liberalism.

Bound up in ALL of this is CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien, and Roman Catholicism, because all Christian denominations should be one and united, despite serious doctrinal error and the basic facts that most people who claim to be Christian are not saved.

We need to be TOGETHER, and UNITED! It would be RUDE to tell someone who believes in Salvation by works that they’re hellbound! Why, it might make them feel bad!

“What about the eternity in hellfire part?”

“That’s not my responsibility.”

It IS your responsibility. If you partner with some theological liberal and don’t bother to tell him he’s hellbound, what will you say to him at the Great White Throne judgment when he says, “Why didn’t you say something?” Yes, you’re going into heaven. But he’s going to Hell. I have ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT that the resident scholar at Logos is not going to be with me in Heaven, but will be screaming in torments forever, in the lake of fire. So much so, that when his materials are free giveaways by Logos, when his classes are avialable, I avoid them like the plague. The same goes for NT Wright, and this new guy that looks so grim when he talks about his new discoveries about salvation being works oriented. The same goes for David Stern, the mis-translator and author of the Jewish New Testament translation. And CS Lewis. Etc.

I can understand why many IFB just lock themselves away with their King James and plug their ears. I’ve been tempted to do that myself. But I’m learning HUGE amounts about the Bible.

THe single hardest thing for me is, staying away from other translations, to stay away from other denominations. Wow, it would be GREAT to stop fighting, to stop swimming against the current. But we’re in the middle of the great falling away, the great apostasy. To give in is to join up, to help establish the wordwide faith that will help the Antichrist move into power. And I don’t want my eternity in heaven to be tainted with the knowledge that because I gave up, because I stopped fighting, I helped establish the Antichrist.

WAAAY too many people are going to have their eternity tempered with that realization. Way too many.

Don’t you be one of them.

Signs of the Times


Evangelicals have begun to oppose the Bible.

Evangelicals have begun to link arms with the unsaved.

Evangelicals are beginning to reject Fundamentalists, in favor of the unSaved, such as those who sprinkle babies and call it salvation. Such as Mormons. Such as Catholics.

We hear that over a billion people are Christians, and we assume that means people who understant “ye must be born again”.

While in Seminary, my teacher asked the rhetorical question of how many people were saved? He guessed 5%, and everyone in the class was scandalized.

I took the Operation World manual, and took their statistics. It was very simple. I took out all the denominations that assume you are predestined to be saved. Why? Because by the second generation, they are relying on their infant baptism as a sign of their “election”.

I took out all the Protestant denominations that believe that being baptized saves you.

I took out the Mormons.

I took out the Roman Catholics.

It left Charismatics and Baptists. I didn’t take out any of those numbers, because I was estimating a “fudge factor” of, “Some of those Protestants must have gotten saved despite their denominations’ stand”.

I ended up with 1.67%, if I recall correctly.

Right around 85 million people.

I did the statistics in reverse, and ended up with the same number. And now I’m thinking I was optimistic.

With that in mind, let’s look at the problem – Evangelicals prefer the company of all those people the Bible rules out as being saved.

15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1 John 2:15 (KJV)

1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 1 John 3:1 (KJV)

19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. John 15:19 (KJV)

The last verse is the bottom line. If you’re an Evangelical Christian, and you reject Fundamentalist as “pharisees”, and use phrases like “I don’t view the Bible as the fourth member of the Trinity”…

The Bible is saying you many not be saved.

Just saying.

Why would you want to deny Hell?


If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know one of the biggest bees in my bonnet is the phrase “Eternal separation from God.”

I absolutely hate it. The phrase cannot be found in the Bible.

“I think that hell essentially is separation
from God forever. And that is the worst hell that I can think
of. But I think people have a hard time believing God is
going to allow people to burn in literal fire forever. I think
the fire that is mentioned in the Bible is a burning thirst for
God that can never be quenched.” Billy Graham, the Orlando Sentinal, April 10, 1983

So many Christians climb the high places to worship Billy Graham as an idol, that this kind of thinking has corrupted Christianity. If you like Billy Graham… I’m sorry. But he said this. He’s been teaching this since 1978.

So, what you’re saying is that you really don’t believe in Hell? Doesn’t that mean you’re calling Jesus Christ a liar? He spoke of Hell many times. There’s an entire chapter in the Bible about it, the passage (it’s not a parable) on Lazarus.

Hell… is real. It’s not a thirst for God. It’s not a desire to know God. Jesus Christ described it as fire, torment, suffering. That’s not a “thirst for God.” That’s… actually a REALLY lame excuse.

HOW can you read the passage on Lazarus (Luke 15) and not get it? I mean, if you read that to little kids and asked them what Hell is like, they’d tell you fire. They’d tell you it burns and hurts a lot. That you’d always want to drink water to keep from suffering.

I REALLY want someone to defend this “eternal Separation from God” nonsense. Tell me where you see a time-out in the Bible. Tell me where you spend eternity, facing a corner, feeling sorry you never got saved.

That’s not what the Bible says. It’s not allegorical. It literally means you’ll be in eternal torment, suffering, on fire, in agony, thirsty, weeping, screaming, begging, pleading, bargaining, crying “I’m sorry!” over and over and over and over again for the next thirteen BILLION years…. and knowing that is only the beginning of it.

Tell me how telling someone that they’ll be sitting in a dark room, wishing they could know God, will get ANYONE saved.

Billy Graham cannot even admit someone that follows a false religion will go to Hell. “I use to believe that…” is what he says.

Why haven’t we separated from him? Rejected his teachings? Refused to support his ministry, his crusades?

He was the only Evangelical saying this years ago. When I was a kid, fourteen years old, I could remember Christians saying “The Bible says if you’re not born again you’ll go to Hell.”

Now they make lame “You’ll have to stay after school comments. HOW are you going to explain to the people you witnessed to who rejected such a false Gospel, “Wow, I’m sorry, I made it into heaven and you’re going to burn forever… I’m sorry.”

Their answer is going to be agonized screams and a question you’ll have to live with forever… “Sorry? How can you just sit there in heaven and say you’re SORRY???”

What Ecumenism is


Recently I did an article on  “Why are we still listening to Rick Warren?” I made mention of his desire to create a one world church.

Yesterday I described how the Antichrist will ride the one-world church into power – it will be a forum he will be able to take advantage of to help consolidate power – before he eventually destroys that apostate church.

I’m not really seeing how we can separate a desire to create a one-world church and the one the Antichrist uses. From where I’m sitting, you have a very wealthy and influential pastor bent on creating the one-world church that will put the Antichrist in power.

“I see absolutely zero reason in separating my fellowship from anybody” – Rick Warren

3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Amos 3:3 (KJV)

Rick Warren sees no harm in joining with everybody. Look, even the most evangelical and ecumenical Christian out there, completely blind to discernment and seeing the world through candy twizzler glasses, can tell you that not everybody is right.

Zero reason for separating my fellowship? How about the Bible? Isn’t that our rule of faith and practice?

But the problem remains is that Warren is a Bible agnostic.

The Bible is God’s word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error. — Saddleback Church Statement of Faith

um… the Bible was written DOWN by human WRITERS… but the Bible did not have human authors, but God as the Author.

Rick Warren cannot point to any Bible as God’s perfect, inerrant, preserved, inspired word of God. He quotes from the Message as well as the Living Bible as Roman Catholic translations. But if you attempt to pin him down on the Bible, he really can’t tell you which one is God’s word. Indeed, Warren’s approach to the Bible is to decide the meaning of a text, and search for a scripture in various translations that support his interpretation of it.

This is the man guiding you back to Rome. He triumphantly celebrates the choosing of new popes, conveniently forgetting that the Roman Catholic church used to burn or drown Baptists.

“I am talking about the fact that about a hundred years ago, Christianity split into two wings…”Rick Warren

Still trying to figure out what happened around 1815 or so that rick Warren is referencing. If he’s referring to the Reformation and Martin Luther… I have to worry a little.

“Most readers will be surprised to learn that the largest international network is…the Christian Church. The Church, in all its expressions—Catholic, Evangelical, Pentecostal, Protestant and many others—has 2.3 billion followers.” Rick Warren

Rick Warren wants to return you to Rome. He’s enthusiastic about doing it. He’s excited to do it.

Separate from him. Reject his teachings. Throw away his DVD’s, get rid of his books.

Read your Bible and ask yourself if you agree with everything that the Roman church teaches? Do you believe in Mary, Queen of Heaven? Do you believe the wafer becomes the literal flesh of Jesus Christ? Do you believe in salvation by works?

6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. Galatians 1:6-9 (KJV)

17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. Romans 16:17-18 (KJV)

6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them. 8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. Ephesians 5:6-11 (KJV)

3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; 4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, 5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. 1 Timothy 6:3-5 (KJV)

Rick Warren – why do people still follow him?


I’ve written about Rick Warren before.

He calls for unity in the “church”. If he means unity among churches, I agree. That would be wonderful.

But the Bible forbids me, a Bible believing Christian, from associating with someone who teaches error.

17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. Romans 16:17-18 (KJV)

If someone is teaching doctrine that is contrary to the Bible, such as Baptismal Regeneration, or Infant Baptism (which… is essentially Baptismal Regeneration)… I must mark and avoid them. That’s what the Bible teaches.

8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. Galatians 1:8-9 (KJV)

If anyone teaches Salvation by works… I cannot associate with them. It is a false Gospel.

So, for the REST of the churches out there, Unity among them would be a wonderful thing. I agree.

But Warren includes people who teach salvation by baptism, and those who teach you must do works to be saved, and those who teach universalism, and those who do not believe you must be born again (but rather that anyone who just starts attending a church no matter what you believe) and those who think that God was once a man and that as God now is, they may become…

Warren includes everybody. Why?

The Bible says that all religions will be united together in Brotherhood. They will all be of one mind, one heart, one soul. Bound together in brotherhood under one man.

The Antichrist.

Warren’s trying desperately to build that one-world “Church”.

It’s elementary that when you’re a “Bridge builder”, those bridges go somewhere.

1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. 7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. 8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. Revelation 17:1-9 (KJV)

That’s the one-world “Church” that Rick Warren is trying to build. It’s headquartered on a city of seven hills. Do a quick search, and tell me if you can spot what city on this earth is made of Seven Hills and has a religious system based in it? Whose priests wear scarlet and red? Who lift up a golden cup as part of their worship service?

There was a priest known as Father Richard Bennett who realized that one day, while he stood in that city, and it drove him after several sleepless nights to renounce that “church” and open his Bible, reading it for himself, and got saved. You can read his story here.

Why do we follow a man, buy his books, read his blogs and “tweets”, who so openly is trying to build the Antichrist’s false religion?

Why has the Southern Baptist Convention never rebuked him?

If you own any books by this man, you need to store them in your trash can.

Evangelicalism – the enemy of Christianity?


To really understand my subject, let’s look at the Christians who took the Bible seriously around World War II.

Fundamentalism means believing the Bible literally. The problem with Christianity is that modernism started back in the 1880’s, first rising with Darwinism (Wescott and Hort were Darwinists) and the big Times Square churches controversy over “Is eternal punishment Biblical?”

I had on one computer literally hundreds of scanned pamphlets from the 1870’s, where the Fundamentalists were involved in a pamphlet printing war over whether Hell is real. The Unitarians and the modernists in several denominations began printing hundreds of pamphlets declaring that all men were saved, which… clearly the Bible does not teach. The non-modernists all protested, and cited Scripture to show there is a hell and eternal punishment.

During those days, men believed the Bible. They were called Christians. The stance in those days was Fundamental. You believed the Bible literally, or you were a modernist, and did not.

After World War II, men such as Harold Ockinga all were tired of the fighting with the modernists. Men had gone overseas and fought the enemies world wide, and were coming home to their churches, where they would… fight the modernists.

So Harold Ockinga coined the term “New Evangelicalism”. “We repudiate come out-ism!” was their battle cry, and many flocked to it.

Except that come out-ism is commanded in the Bible. If you’re a Bible believing Christian, then you really don’t have a choice. God says it, you do it.

Separate from the unBelievers and heretics. That’s in the Bible. As a matter of fact, it’s in almost every book in the New testament. On my “Comment Policy” page, I have scores of verses all listing Biblically ordered commands to reject and separate from false teachers and heretics. It’s gotten some flak.

Listen, I didn’t write the Bible. I just quotes it.

It has gotten to the point where Evangelicals today far outnumber the Fundamentalists. And Evangelicals often call themselves Fundamentalists, but they;re not.

They join hands with unbelievers in every denomination, and proudly boast of it. They write articles  attacking Ken  Ham for teaching the Bible, and champion teachers who obviously have never read it. They call for us to unite with the unSaved, like Roman Catholics, for the sake of “The Gospel” when they clearly have no idea what it is.

If you claim to believe the Bible, and yet reject it every chance you get, what are you?

Lying.

The philosophy of Evangelicalism is a heretical “Judge Not” Christianity, which accepts just any Bible, despite many people who’ve researched the subject and warning them. Evangelicals accept mormons as Christians, despite the fact they simply have no idea what the Gospel is, but believe we must become gods. Evangelicals accept things their grandparents described as idolatry.  You know what’s the big hit among young evangelicals right now? Rosary beads. And among many, the “Emergent” evangelicals, idol worship is. Hey, you accepted the Catholics… no wonder your kids are lighting incense to Buddhas.

The Bible says to judge with righteous judgment. The Evangelicals say, “judge not.” The Bible says to separate from false teachers. The Evangelicals say, “mind your own business. Joel Osteen can teach what he wants, because God is using him.” The Bible says if you are not born again, you’ll go to Hell.

What are a lot of Evangelicals saying now? “You go through eternal separation from God.” That’s… not what the Bible says.

You know what? Evangelicalism is just Modernism disguised.  What was happening in 1870 and 1880 among a few “Christians” is status quo today.

And nobody seems to care.

We’re in big, big, big trouble.

Because We Don’t Read our Bibles


12 Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food. Job 23:12 (KJV)

2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. Psalm 138:2 (KJV)

Do we hold our Bibles that highly? God considers it more important than His name. Do you consider the Bible that highly? Do you consider it more important than food?

I remember the Sabbath when my Rabbi found me sitting downstairs in his kitchen drinking coffee with his sons, and all he had to say was, “I hope you all said the shema before you honored yourselves with coffee.”

That was a big hit-home message.  It was far more important to quote Deuteronomy 6:4-8 than it was to stop and get a nice, warm cup of Folger’s coffee. I normally drank Maxwell House back then, but hey, Folger’s made coffee in teabag-style singles, so you could make coffee on the Sabbath.

I have esteemed the words of His mouth…. more than my necessary food.

Do you?

How many times have you read the Bible all the way through? Do you have at least ONE VERSE highlighted in every book of the Bible? All I’m asking is that you highlight 66 verses! I guarantee when my wife bought me a leatherbound King James Bible, I highlighted at least that many the first night.

Do you pour over God’s word? How well could you do in a Bible trivia game? It reveals a lot, by the way!

I know a Christian who was embarrassed that a page fell out of his Bible in front of me. I told him I didn’t know why he was embarrassed – I told him, “show me a Christian who’s Bible is falling apart… and I’ll show you a Christian whose life is not.”

Okay, I’m not the originator of that quote, but yes, it’s a true story. He’s probably gonna laugh at me at work later this week that I told everyone.

What is the result of not reading your Bible?

Well, this blog, for one. I’m so dumbfounded at Christianity not knowing its Bible I had to start a blog on my laptop a few years ago, and we decided to take it public almost three years ago.

If we read our Bibles, nobody would be an Evangelical. You’d all be Fundamentalists. And yes, there’s a difference.

If we all compared every teaching we heard to our Bibles, we’d have dismissed Evangelicalism’s blatant Ecumenism.

If we all compared every teaching we heard to our Bibles,we’d have recognized the ultimate goal of New Evangelicalism and Ecumenism was to build the one-world religion that the Antichrist will use to propel himself into power.

We’ve all read the verses that say…

17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. Romans 16:17-18 (KJV)
6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them. 8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Ephesians 5:6-9 (KJV)
11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. Ephesians 5:11 (KJV)
6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us. 7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you; 8 Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: 9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us. 10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. 11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. 12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread. 13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing. 14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. 15 Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother. 2 Thessalonians 3:6-15 (KJV)
We read those verses… and then we go ahead and accept people as Christians who think that being sprinkled with water as a baby makes them a Christian. That’s not a Christian.
Ye must be born again.We read those verses, and think we should accept people who think they will someday become gods and goddesses. we think we should accept people who call themselves Christians, but advocate you must keep the law after salvation to KEEP that salvation.
We read those verses, and think we should accept people who use prayers in vain repetitions as the heathen do, who burn incense and pray to idols, who teach salvation by works.
If we all compared every teaching we heard to our Bibles,we’d have separated from all of them immediately, and warned them unless they repent and are born again, accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour in a spiritual rebirth by Faith…. that they will all perish in the fire that is not quenched, and their worm dyeth not.
If we all compared every teaching we heard to our Bibles, we’d have rejected the lunacy that passes for the attitude we should accept a pastor whose doctrine agrees with ours only 90%. That sounds fine and admirable, but what does the Bible say? If that 10% we disagree on includes accepting everyone who names the name of Christ whether saved or not, infant Baptism, questioning the Bible, Baptismal regeneration, the deity of Christ, inspiration of Scripture, salvation by works, idolatry, or the Trinity – they’re a heretic. Why should I accept them?
You know, really, when you start looking at some cults (you know, the ones everyone used to agree on were cults before one of them ran for President as a Republican Candidate!!!), you start to see we agree on some things. Should I accept Mormons as Christians because we agree on a few things? Or Jehovah’s Witnesses because we agree on possibly a few more? No. The Bible says one promotes Universalism and Idolatry. The other denies the Trinity, the Deity of Christ, and manages to somehow mangle their entire Bible into meaning the exact opposite of what the Bible says.

 

If we all compared every teaching we heard to our Bibles, we’d have rejected Billy Graham in the 1950’s when he spoke in favor of Baptismal Regeneration, and began involving Roman Catholics in his “crusades”. And we’d have rejected him even more forcefully when he denied the existence of a literal Hell in the 1960’s. And when he began offering Halley’s Bible Handbook to people – with every reference to Roman Catholic massacres and tortures of Christians removed.

If we all compared every teaching we heard to our Bibles, we’d reject teachers like Joyce Meier, Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, Crefloe Dollar, Myles Munroe, E. W. Kenyon, Benny Hinn, Gloria Copeland, Rod Parsley, and many, many, many others we tolerate. It sickens me to hear Baptists quote Gloria Copeland or Joyce Meiers, when we should KNOW better!

If we all compared every teaching we heard to our Bibles,we’d probably all have rejected the new modern perversions of the Bible, upon seeing that they removed or called into question THOUSANDS of words and even entire verses!

People. I cannot say this strongly enough. Open your Bibles. Make it a habit to read them, to know them. Make it a habit to study them. Do NOT make a pet doctrine of yours the basis for your Bible knowledge, make the Bible provide you with your doctrines.

I’ve recently had some debates on this blog where Christians tried to argue for their pet doctrines, heard my Scriptural basis for my doctrine, and proceeded to try to argue logic with me, without resorting to Scripture. If you did that, that’s a major warning sign.

You know what the very first warning sign is your doctrine is off? Questioning the Pre-Trib Rapture. I’ve noticed when Christians begin doing that, just like ballistics, their aim gets further and further off the father they go.

And I’d be willing to bet that if you’re reading a modern translation, you’re shocked at the things I’m talking about today.

People, make it a PRIORITY to read your Bible, study your Bible.
