The Bloodless Gospel of John MacArthur

^^^ I CLAIM NO OWNERSHIP OF ATTACHED PHOTO^^^

John MacArthur from Grace To You ministries, has gone on record of his hardcore works salvation teaching. The name of his ministry is very ironic, as there is nothing graceful in his ministry.  What makes him so dangerous is how he knows to come off as a very intelligent intellectual, while on the inside, being spiritually perverse, concerning salvation.  MacArthur teaches that you must surrender everything, and make Jesus the Lord of your life, before you can be saved.  That alone is a demonic heresy, because you will never make Jesus Lord of your life, until you see Him face to face.  Following is an exact quote by John MacArthur.

The Gospel says, ‘give your life to Christ and He rules’ and if you’re not willing to do that it’s because you want to keep the rule of your own life. The rich young man wanted his own life for himself. He wanted to control his own life. He had his choice: sins, he had his choice, religion, and he wanted to hang onto control. It’s that simple. Coming to Christ means you give up the control of your life, and you yield it to Christ. That’s what kept him from salvation, he was unwilling to do that.”

First off, MacArthur is wrong about the rich young man.  Jesus was simply showing him that self righteousness is flawed.  You can see more detail here, but even more cringe worthy, is what John MacArthur teaches the Gospel says, as the Gospel says the exact opposite of what he claims.  It teaches that Christ gave His life for you.

However, there is more to this devil.  It is clear in the Bible, that we are saved by Christ’s bloodshed work, but John MacArthur teaches, that Christ’s blood is not necessary for salvation.  He claims that only Jesus’ death is what matters.  You can see him teaching this here.  Now don’t get me wrong, Jesus did also need to die because “the wages of sin is death” and He needed to be resurrected to defeat death, but the blood, is very necessary.  I think that what MacArthur said in that video, is one of the most devilish things I have ever heard.

To begin refuting this devilish doctrine, we will start by going back to the death of the passover lamb in Exodus 12.  In verse 7 we read  “And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat.”  Then you jump to verse 13 where you read “and the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: AND WHEN I SEE THE BLOOD, I will pass over you, and the plague, shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

This is about when God was sending plagues upon the land of Egypt because of their pagan gods and enslavement of the Israelites, and God had reached a point, where he was going to send a plague, that would take the lives of all of the firstborn in the land of Egypt, and the sacrifice of the passover lamb, was a way for people who took part, to escape this plague.

You see that the passover lamb’s death itself was not enough to exclude anyone from the plague.  The lamb’s blood had to be applied to the doorposts of the home.  Reading verses 1 and 4, will make it very clear what these sacrifices in the Old Testament were about.

Hebrews 10:1,4- [1] For the law having a SHADOW of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. [4] For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

What Paul is saying here, is the Old Testament tabernacle, holy of holies, mercy seat and priestly work of atonement, were all “SHADOWS” of things to come, and what was that referring to?  It was referring to the blood shed work of Jesus.  Just like the lamb’s shed blood needed to be applied to the doorposts is Exodus 12, the same was true with the blood of Jesus, being applied to the mercy seat in heaven.

the blood applications in the Old Testament were a shadow of that.  Christ was slain on the cross for us, enter unto death for us, and immediately went to heaven when He arose, entered the holy of holies in heaven, and applied his blood to the mercy seat before the throne of God.  Hebrew 9:12 will make that very clear.

Hebrews 9:12- Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

That is talking about Jesus applying His blood to the heavenly mercy seat before the throne of God.  John chapter 20 will make this very clear when it happened.  On the morning of the resurrection, Jesus meets Mary in the tomb, and the moment she recognized Him, she would have kissed his feet.  Then he stopped her saying “touch me not” followed by a reason.

John 20:17- Jesus smith unto her, Touch me not; For I am not yet asceneded to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your  Father; and to my God, and your God.

You will understand why He said this, when you remember the high priest after he offered the sacrifice, he was to enter the holy of holies with the blood before he did anything else.  No one was allowed to approach Him, and everyone was shut out until this was complete.  That is exactly why Jesus, forbade Mary to touch Him.  It was a fulfillment of what we read of the sacrifices in the Old Testament, because remember they were “a shadow of things to come.”

1 Peter 1:18-19- [18] Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; [19] But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.

There Peter is making a direct reference to the lamb sacrifices in the Old Testament saying just like Paul (though not directly) that they were a “shadow of things to come.”  The passover lamb had to be without blemish and without spot, and that was a shadow of Jesus being without sin, because He had to take our sin upon Himself.  Jesus is called “Lamb of God” for this reason.  He is the second member of the Godhead.  You have the Father, the Son, and The Holy Spirit.  Three persons, one God, and Jesus, the Son, was the sacrificial lamb.

John MacArthur accuses us of turning Jesus’ blood in to a fetish, likening the necessity of His blood unto magic, and all other bodily fluids.  We know, His blood isn’t “magic” MacArthur.  It is Holy, righteous, and acceptable before God.  He says that Jesus’ blood was merely representing His death, and we see that is false, as I have made t very clear that the literal blood of the passover lamb was a shadow of the literal blood of Jesus Christ, and tops it off by saying that he isn’t teaching anything different then Christianity has taught in it’s entire existence.  Well, if that’s the case MacArthur, then I guess you need to explain old hymns about the blood of Christ.  Why William Cowper who back in 1772  penned the words “There is a fountain filled with blood drawn from Immanuel’s veins, and sinners plunged beneath the flood, lose all their guilty stains.  The dying thief rejoiced to see, the fountain in his day, and there may I though vile as He wash all my sins away. E’er since, by faith, I saw the stream thy flowing wounds supply, redeeming love has been my theme, and shall be till I die.”

John MacArthur is teaching the exact opposite of what Christianity taught of the blood throughout its history.  John MacArthur is a devil, full of teachings that will take you straight to hell, should you believe them.  Steer clear of this devil, false prophet.

The Rich Young Man Explained

Matthew 19:16-22- And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? [17] And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. [18] He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, [19] Honour thy father and thy mother: and Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. [20] The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? [21] Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell what thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. [22] But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great posessions.

This passage is very well known by most of Christianity and is recorded in three of the Gospel accounts.  Closely looking at the whole passage, you can easily see what it means.  Notice how the young man says “what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?”  There is the telling question that describes what this whole passage is about.  It is about a self righteous hypocrite who wants to get eternal life through his own good works.

Jesus then goes on to say what he would need to do to gain eternal life if he were to do it by himself, and the rich young man brags about his self righteousness in saying he has kept all of those commandments, which I am 100% sure was not true, but he was blinded by his own self righteousness.  I am sure he committed adultery, because Jesus said a man is already an adulterer in his heart if he were to so much as look upon a woman with lust, and I don’t know a single man (except Jesus) that hasn’t, and I myself will admit guilt to that.  Most people I know have stolen at least one thing in their lives, and I myself will also admit guilt to that.  I am 100% sure that he told a lie in his life as EVERYBODY (except Jesus) HAS, and I myself will also admit guilt to that.  The Bible itself says “let God be true, but EVERY MAN a liar” (Romans 3:4).  I don’t know a single person (except Jesus) who never once disobeyed their parents, and I myself will also admit guilt to that.  I also don’t know anyone that hasn’t had a sense of ungodly hatred towards another human (except Jesus), and I myself will also admit guilt to that.

This rotten young man boastfully says ” All these things have I kept from my youth up: WHAT LACK I YET?”  This my friends, is one of many examples of pride.  What a boastful punk, bragging to Jesus HIMSELF about his own self righteousness saying he has no sin.  Jesus then went on the say something that would be obvious to this young man saying “If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell what thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.”

The rich young man went away mourning, because he had been exposed for the self-righteous hypocrite that he was.  This passage is all about it being impossible to inherit eternal life by ourselves, but if you were to suggest like John MacArthur, that this passage is saying you can’t go to heaven if you have one worldly interest, saying that this young man couldn’t go to heaven because he didn’t want to give up his possessions,  that would irk the fire right out of my free grace brains.

Whenever Jesus was talking about having to keep the law to go to heaven, He was showing that it was IMPOSSIBLE for us mortal human beings to keep the law, and that we needed HIM to take our sins upon HIMSELF.  That is the purpose of the whole law, to show us mortal humans what a drove of hell deserving rotten sinners we are, and that we could NEVER do ANYTHING of your own righteousness (of which you have none), and that you needed to believe on Christ’s payment for your sin to save you, and that is what saves your soul from eternal hellfire.  Many of these people who make me sick at my soul preaching a salvation by works, like to quote verses that actually refute their position.  If someone tells you that you can’t go to heaven because of sins you struggle with, that person is a false prophet, there is NO such thing as a Christian that doesn’t struggle with sin.

“Communicators” with the “Dead”

Deuteronomy 18:9-12- [9] When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. [10] There shall not bee found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, [11] Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. [12] For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations, the  LORD thy God doth drive them from before thee.

I decided to write this when I got to thinking about how many people I know, personally, that used to be very much into these kind of things and/or still are.

Throughout the Bible, we find God warning His people to not take part of any pagan practices of lands that they go into.  In the passage above, we find titles of pagans of which today, we call psychics, mediums, astrologers, palm readers, fortune tellers, you name them.  You can see in this passage that the occult is nothing new, you can see it was around during Moses, time, and I’m sure it was around before then.  I am quite positive that there was a lot of it going on when God decided to flood the earth in Genesis 6.

With a scriptural study of the term “witchcraft” in the Bible, you will conclude that it means to seek guidance, help, predictions of future, etc. from any spiritual source other than God’s Holy Spirit.  You will see the term “consulter with familiar spirits” in the Bible passage above.  A familiar spirit is any spirit other than The Holy Spirit.  If it is any other spirit than The Holy Spirit, then it is a satanic sprit.  “Spiritual” talk, without even mentioning Jesus or the Bible once is very common nowadays.  You will hear talk of all these “spiritual energies” and “spiritual realms.”  If ANYONE ever tries giving you any spiritual advice that is not of God’s Holy Spirit, then you need to get away from that person IMMEDIATELY.  They are consulting with evil spirits of Satan.

All of the above practices named in Deuteronomy 18:9-12 are practices of witchcraft.  Today, these people have taken on more watered down terms to make it sound a bit less satanic (psychic, medium, etc.) and has become VERY popular among the younger generations over the past century.

People will often go and see a medium after a close friend or family member has died just to attempt to have communication with them.  A “medium” is someone who claims to hold communication with “departed spirits” (remember God’s Holy Spirit vs. an evil spirit).  This is exactly what the Bible calls a necromancer.  There is NOTHING in scripture that even comes close to suggesting that we have any ability to communicate with the dead, or that the dead can communicate with us, and as a matter of fact, there is a passage in scripture that will refute that ideology.

Luke 16:27-28- [27] Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: [28] For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

The man in hell, in that passage, wants his brothers to be aware of the eternal torment by one being sent to them.  He could not have any contact with them himself, wherefore he was asking for a messenger to be sent to them.  The idea that people who died before you can give you signs is totally unbiblical.  Nothing in scripture shows us that we will still have contact with those alive on earth.  Whether you’re in heaven or hell.

Relating this back to necromancers (mediums), they will often tell you after their “connection” with the “departed spirit,” what the person is saying or that the person is going to give you a sign and will often be very specific, and their prediction of what will happen, really does happen.  I know people who experienced it. However, we know that it is not a sign from the passed loved one, since we know that after our physical death, there will be no contact with people still alive on earth, but these “mediums” and “psychics” are often correct.

Earlier in this article, I explained that these people use witchcraft, meaning they get knowledge from a spirit that is not God’s Holy Spirit, therefore it comes from an evil spirit of Satan.  I believe that these so called “departed spirits” that these people are talking to, are actually evil spirits working through them, and giving them such knowledge to deceive people into thinking that we will be “ghosts” wandering the earth talking to people, and giving signs to people, or that we will have some form of communication with people still alive on earth.  I also believe, that these people will often put a “spell” (so to speak) through these satanic spirits if their prediction is about an “incident” that is supposed to repeatedly happen.

I know people who have experienced this, and it is my prayer that these “spells” that they are under are destroyed by our Holy God.  If you have told me of any experience, then I have prayed specifically for you over this.  The signs you are given are from an evil spirts and not your passed loved one.

I even believe that many of these necromancers are devout Satanists wanting to work with his evil spirits specifically to deceive people like this, and will one day RIGHTFULLY suffer dearly in the lake of fire with their father Satan and the rest of the eternally damned.

It is likely, that anyone who practices the witchcraft mentioned in this article, will despise me for exposing them and try casting a “spell” on me to harm me.  Maybe the evil spirits that they consult with will make them aware of me, and maybe even the ones that people I know have visited with, will give them false “warnings” about me that I will do harm to their life, and I pray that none of my friends are deceived by these evil people over that.  To the ones that want to cast a “spell” of harm against me, then I will tell you yourself will fail to do harm to my soul.  It is covered in the blood of The Lord Jesus Christ, whom you are ABSOLUTELY NO MATCH AGAINST.  I am not afraid of you.

Psalm 23:4- Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and they staff they comfort me.

If any evil spirit you consult with will cause trouble in my life, it is only because God allowed it to take place in order to test my faith.  You have no authority over Him.  I struggle through stages of depression from time to time, God pulls me out of every episode, and I know He would do it again, so my advice, don’t even waste your time trying.

In the name of The Lord Jesus Christ I write unto all.  Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Billy Graham- Wicked False Deciever

If this is your first time visiting this site, please click here

I  CLAIM NO OWNERSHIP OF THE FEATURED PHOTO

 Billy Graham, has become one of the most popular televangelists of the time, with a very heavy following.  Many professing Christians have blindly followed this man as an evangelical hero, I have seen some Christians whom I believe are saved that haven’t so much followed him, but have quoted him, having been decieved by Satan into not really knowing what an evil false prophet Billy is.  One thing I want to clear up first, I do believe it is possible for a saved person to be decieved into believing an unsaved person is saved, because Satan is doing everything he can to stop them from being exposed. Satan will try to stop our evangelistic efforts at all costs.  Therefore, if I see a saved brother or sister quote Billy Graham, I am not going to accuse them of not really being saved, because all it means is that this wicked, false prophet hasn’t been fully exposed to the person.  

GRAHAM LOVES CATHOLICISM

To begin the exposing of this man, I would say the featured picture of this article are enough to expose him, but I will still go further, because we are told in 2 Peter 2:1 that there will be false teachers among us and I want to expose them to the best of my ability.  Regarding the above photo, Billy Graham thought very highly of Pope John Paul II.  We know that Roman Catholicism is of the devil, with their works based salvation (most of which are works made up by the church and not even in the Bible, including excessive idol worship).  
In the June 26th, 1979 issue of “The Star” there was an article which read “In this exclusive interview, evangelist Billy Graham hails pope John Paul II’s pilgrimage to Portland as a triumph for Christianity.  Dr. Graham and other religious leaders also heap praise on the pontiff for helping to push the religious revival worldwide.”

That should say it all.  Billy Graham supports an ecumenical movement which includes catholicism.  Anybody with an understanding of the Bible knows that catholicism has never taken anyone to heaven, therefore a massive catholic revival would result in more souls being damned.  To end this section of the article, following are more quotes by Graham regarding this matter.

“I do believe that something happens at the baptism of an infant… we cannot fully understand the mysteries of God, but I believe that a miracle can happen in these children so that they are regenerated, that is, MADE CHRISTIAN, THROUGH INFANT BAPTISM.” 

“I admired Pope John tremendously … I felt he brought a new era to the world. It is my hope that the Cardinals elect a new Pope who will follow the same line as John. It would be a great tragedy if they chose a man who reacted against John” (2/2/63 Michigan City News-Dispatch; 6/8/63 Chicago Tribune).

“Finally, the way of salvation has not changed. I know how the ending of the book will be. The Gospel that built this school (catholic school) and the Gospel that brings me here tonight is still the way to salvation” (“Belmont Abbey Confers Honorary Degree,” (The Gastonia Gazette Nov. 22, 1967)

“The visit of Pope John Paul II to the United States is an event of great significance not only for Roman Catholics, but for all Americans as well as the world. In the short time he has been the Pope, John Paul II has become the moral leader of the world. My prayers and the prayers of countless other Protestants will be with him as he makes his journey” (Religious New Service dispatch; New Neutralism II, p. 40).

GRAHAM’S UNBIBLICAL VIEW OF HELL

“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.” (The Orlando Sentinel, 1983)

There you have it.  Billy Graham is one of those preachers that will water down the doctrine of eternal hellfire and blasphemously saying it is a desire for God.  Unfortunately Graham is ignorant of the word TORMENT in the descriptions of hell.  Even in his preferred perverted version there are references to pain.

Billy Graham believes that the above is the “future hell” as he believes there are “at least three kinds of hell. ” He believes the first hell is  “hell in the heart” which he believes is the sinfullness of mankind, and “hell in society” which he believes is the wickedness of secular society.  To sum up what Graham believes about hell, he believes it is not a literal place, but rather believes it is a state of the heart, and unfortunately, there are many people who believe this wicked doctrine.

GRAHAM’S JUSTIFICATION FOR WICKEDNESS

At one of  his crusdades in San Francsco, Billy proudly stated “Whatever your background, whatever your sexual orientation, we welcome you tonight” he also snapped at a news reporter earlier for his suspision of them trying to get him to criticize the sodomites in which he said “I have many gay friends, and we remain friends.”  Graham is also the founder of “Christianity Today” which has links to pro homosexual websites for teens curious about their orientation.  Billy calls God a liar when he says “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”  Graham also said on Larry King’s show that sodomy is in people’s genes.  This is slanderous blasphemy that makes makes God the author of sin.  This is an evil heresy.

When Bill Clinton was having an affair with Monica Lewinsky, Graham said “The man just can’t help himself…Clinton is handsome and virile, and the girls are just wild over him.”  According to Graham, being handsome and having girls go crazy over you is justifiable for yielding to temptations of the flesh.  Ol’ Billy boy is once again calling God a liar.

Hebrews 13:4- Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

GRAHAM SAYS UNBELIEVERS CAN BE SAVED

In a television interview on May 31st, 1997, Graham said these words.

“Well, Christianity and being a true believer–you know, I think there’s the Body of Christ. This comes from all the Christian groups around the world, outside the Christian groups. I think everybody that loves Christ, or knows Christ, whether they’re conscious of it or not, they’re members of the Body of Christ. And I don’t think that we’re going to see a great sweeping revival, that will turn the whole world to Christ at any time. I think James answered that, the Apostle James in the first council in Jerusalem, when he said that God’s purpose for this age is to call out a people for His name. And that’s what God is doing today, He’s calling people out of the world for His name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world, or the Christian world or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ because they’ve been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus but they know in their hearts that they need something that they don’t have, and they turn to the only light that they have, and I think that they are saved, and that they’re going to be with us in heaven.””

You see Graham is preaching a very odd form of Calvinism here.  Calvinism is a heresy in the first place which comes from misquoting passages such as Romans 8 and 9, but at least most Calvinists’ I have known of say you aren’t one of God’s unconditionally elected (heresy by the way) unless you are a believer.   Graham is saying that God will just pick and choose them without them even hearing the Gospel or ever even knowing Christ.  Once again, he is calling God a liar.

John 8:24- I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he , ye shall die in your sins.

CONCLUSION

There are insiders from the freemasons’ that say Billy Graham is one of them.  Even if he wasn’t, his massive support for a worldwide ecumenical movement should be enough of an exposure that he works for the New World Order.  Graham has attended many meetings for the World Council of Churches and has made his endorsement of them public as well as  Romman Catholicism.. He has done a vast amount of work for bringing out a one world church with his support of a  worldwide revival of a mixture of all sorts of religious ideologies, saying that there is no right or wrong  religion, which is extremely unbiblical.

Ephesians 4:4-6- [4] There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; [5] One Lord, one faith, one baptism, [6] One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

In the name of The Lord Jesus Christ I write unto you.  Amen.



Homosexuals Can Still Get Saved (Refuting Unbiblical Interpretation of Romans 1 )

If this is your first time visiting this site, please click here.

I believe the Bible is God’s word, so I believe it when it says sodomy is an abominable vile affection (Leviticus 18:22 and Romans 1:26-27).  As a result of this belief, I have come across people who simply respectfully disagreed with me recognizing that many people have opinions that are unpopular in modern society (these are usually the people that know me well), some people have deemed me a “homophobic bigot” and developed a rather vicious attitude toward me.

It is without question about what the Bible says about this, however, many people quote Romans 1:18-32 to try and say that sodomites can never get saved, specifically quoting Romans 1:28 which reads “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”

While the whole passage is referring to people who have been given over to a reprobate mind, people falsely assume that it is referring to every single sodomite.  The people that this passage is talking about began by making a final rejection of receiving Christ as their Savior.  Consider below.

Romans 1:20-23- [20] For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so they are without excuse: [21] Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. [22] Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. [23] And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

You see that they wanted nothing to do with God, and so they gave all of the evidence of Him and His glory to their false goddess of “mother nature” because they did not want to accept the fact that they were accountable to Him, so he then gives them over to a reprobate mind, with the sodomite lifestyle being one of the abominations that they are given over to.  You will with the following verses though, that this can not be referring to every single sodomite.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11- [9] Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?  Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, [10] Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. [11] And such were some of you, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. 

(People also love to try and quote 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 to say that you can not go to heaven if you commit sin.  See a refutation of that interpretation here.

Notice the first bolded section where it says, “nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.”  You will see that sodomites are covered RIGHT THERE.  Then notice the second bolded section that reads “And such were some of you.”  You can see that there were people in the church at Corinth, that had committed sodomite acts, but you see with the rest of the bolded section, they were saved .

Something else that a lot of people among the crowd that believe Romans 1 is referring to every single sodomite says is that “they commit suicide all the time because THEY KNOW THEY ARE VILE.”  That does not even come close to adding up, if they believe every single one of them is a doomed unsavable reprobate.  Consider the following.

Romans 1:29-31- [29] Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, [30] Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, [31] Without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: [32] Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

You can see that the people who have reached the phrase that Romans 1 is referring to have no conscience of any sort.  They will do whatever they please as long as it feels good for them (what a dangerous way to live your life, if it feels good, do it).  They don’t care what people think of them, and they are proud of who they are.  They are they most monstrous people on the planet.  Now personally, I actually do believe that some sodomites commit suicide because they have a conscience that knows what they are doing goes against a God ordained natural order, but that is not a contradiction for me, because I don’t believe every single last one of them is a doomed reprobate.

To conclude, I will use Romans 1 to show how the Bible calls sodomy and unnatural vile affection, but the part of them being given over to a reprobate mind, can not be referring to every single sodomite. Some of you will say amen to the points I made, some of you may respectfully disagree, and some of you may sink deeper into their pride and accuse me of “defending the sodomites,” and if you are one of those guys, then I feel very sorry for you that you were not able to pass 1st grade comprehension.  I believe every part of God’s word.  In the name of The Lord Jesus Christ I write unto you.  Amen.

 

 

How To Help Someone Battling Depression

As someone who has battled seasons of crippling depression on and off for many years, I wanted to share some advice, based on my experience, how you can help someone going through such a difficult phase, with some important do’s and don’ts

I want to start off with the absolute worst thing you could possibly do, that is to shame or guilt the person.  It should be common sense that this is an extremely cruel thing to do, but this does happen.  I have experienced this.  I have had things said to me like “why do you always look like a depressed bum” and “why do you always look so f***ing sad?”  I have had many things said to me, including people close to me, that drove me even deeper into my depression.  I was going through a phase at one point where I was making intentional self-cuts on my forearm/wrist.  I was caught one time, by a group of people around my age, doing it in a public place.  They reported it, though I begged them not to, but they had to do it for my safety.  One person I am associated with who will remain nameless for this said “that is going to be all f***ing over.”  This person was embarrassed by it, and just accused me a play acting later forcing me to show my wrists saying “knock it the f*** off.”  I had people who saw my cuts when I wasn’t wearing a bandage hold my wrist up for everyone to see.  One person, who was just a nasty person in general, mockingly said “don’t pick on him guys, he might kill himself, or at least try to again.”  All of the shaming that some people have given me hurt badly, so let my testimony of that be a tool for you.

Something you really need to do is be patient with the person, and let their condition run its course.  Depression is a come and go condition in most cases, and sometimes, their are only certain people they may want to talk to.  Also listen to the person often without even replying until they are finished.  Just let them get out what they are bottling up inside.  Show deep interest in what they are saying.  Use encouraging words with them such as “I’m here for you” and “I care about you.”  Going back to the event of the group catching me cut myself, the first person to notice it (I won’t release her name for the sake of her privacy) shockingly asked “why are you cutting yourself?  Stop doing that!”  That was enough to make me throw the safety pin away from me.  After a few minutes of conversation from the shocked individuals of the group, some of them not knowing what to do, they left, and took the pin with them to ensure my safety.  I then went out and found them a few minutes later, begging them not to say a word to anybody, as I was afraid I would be sent back to the psych unit at the hospital. One person said “your secret is safe with me” another said something along the lines of “how would you get help if you keep it to yourself?”  The girl that actually stopped me, was just glaring at me with a worried look on her face.  You know from earlier in this article, that they had reported it.  The next day, I noticed a message sent to me on Facebook by the girl that stopped me.  I still, to this day, have this message saved. She said “if you ever need anybody to talk to I’m always here.”  I replied back “Thanks, I just don’t see any reasons for living anymore.”  She then replied “What happened last night?” to which I replied “A whole bunch of stuff on my mind.”  She then said “Like what?  You can talk to me about this.”  I didn’t say anything back to her after that, but the fact that she reached out to check on me and make sure I was ok.  That, to this day, means so much to me, and I think well of her over that.  Let that be a tool for you.  Sometimes just assuring the person that you are there for them can be very helpful.

Something else, that you should avoid, is try to give advice saying why you think they are depressed.  You have no idea, and they will more than likely recoil your opinion.  Also stay positive, and don’t let their depression get you down.  They need someone supportive, not someone to be sad WITH.

Something else that can be very helpful is to invite them to do things with you.  Being secluded is often what we want, but that can be very dangerous.  Something you could invite them to do with you are acts of service, so they can feel worth more, and make sure you let them know their worth.

Last but most certainly not least, pray for the person, and even pray with them.  Even offer to lead them in prayer.  Also let them KNOW you are praying for them.

This list is far from complete , but these pieces of advice will hopefully be very helpful to you if you ever come across someone in this condition.  It is my prayer.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

 

 

 

Oldpaths Critic Church’s Youth Pastor Arrested For Child Molesting

1 Corinthians 10:12- Wherefore let him that think he standeth take heed lest he fall.

Rotten hypocrites.

Do Right Christians

Dr. James A., PhD.

New Bridge Church of Lawrenceville, Georgia,  has been openly critical of the IFB churches (independent fundamental Baptists) with many of their followers constantly criticizing adherents of the Twitter #Oldpaths trend. New Bridge has a similar format and creed as that of IFB critic, Christian Farris of Next Level “ministries”. These groups of IFB critics are always quick to point out the sins of Jack Schaap and other IFB who have been charged with sex crimes, as a grounds for discrediting the entire IFB environment.

On December 28, 2016, the youth pastor of New Bridge Church, Nicholas Kelley, was arrested for child molestation.

Although their lead pastor, Jeff Lyle, denies being a Calvinist or Arminian, his defense of Calvinist doctrines is typical of the type of “neutral” pastors these days that disguise their closet-Calvinism in nuance.

So apparently, sexual abuse of children occurs among the…
