Murdering Christians in God's Name!

John 16:23 says, "They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea the time cometh that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God's service.  And these things will they do unto you because they have not known the Father nor Me."  Does those verses strike a cord?  We hope it does.  And we hope that the picture on the left does too!

In fact, that's what's really going on.  Jesus warned of perilous times when people who will persecute the true followers of Jesus Christ will think they are doing it for the greater glory of God.  The Apostles were victims of it and then later, the Christians.  Reading through the Book of Acts, the Pharisees thought that by removing the Christians, they did God a favor.  Let's think about it- the Pharisees murdered the Lord Jesus Christ thinking that they were doing God a favor by rejecting His Son whom they counted as a blasphemer.  Of course, Jesus allowed it to happen so all sins will be paid regardless BUT the difference is that they continued to reject Him so they could not be forgiven of their sins because they refused to be forgiven and Jesus was more than willing to forgive them of what they did to Him. They continued to reject Jesus Christ as the only Way to Heaven and continued to try and establish their own righteousness.  

So here's a GREAT issue- religious wars are going on and they think they're doing God a great favor.  They are nothing more than godless, Christless activities that are frequently lumped together by the world with soulwinning and evangelism but there is always a difference.  The difference is that true Christians as much as they criticize other religions for being false (it's because they want people to KNOW the truth) are NEVER allowed to force their doctrines on those who refuse.  On the other hand, these godless religious wars are usually taught by their religion (ex. Catholicism and Islam, sadly many of them DO NOT EVEN KNOW IT!)  The greatest victims of the religious wars are Christians.  Christians will always be hated by the world because they are not of the word (John 15:18-21 plus while these godless men claim to know God, they DO NOT and it's revealed by action (Titus 1:16).

A really notorious example should be the Roman Catholic institution as she does it through the Crusades, the Inquisition established by the Dominicans and the Jesuit order.  While they called themselves doing the cause of God, their actions prove otherwise.  The whole movement not only targeted other infidels but also the true believers in Jesus Christ, the Christians.  History has recorded in Foxe's Book of Martyrs the atrocities done against Christian groups such as the Baptists, Anabaptists, Mennonites, Evangelicals, Waldenses and the Presbyterian groups were persecuted, tortured through various means and for what?  Simple- because they upheld Biblical truths of faith alone, grace alone, Scripture alone, in Jesus Christ alone and glory to God alone also known as the five Solas and for sharing the Scriptures with commoners without the permission of the Papal courts.  The activities of these born again Christian groups caused people to be freed from the lies, not seeking fame or fortune but rather that God be glorified.  They thought they were doing God a favor but they weren't- it's because they were killing people who were preaching the Gospel truth to the people.

Today, it will still continue.  More Christians will be killed in the Name of the God they serve.  However like in the Dark Ages, the more Christianity was persecuted, the more it grew instead.

Answering Some Atheists Who Claim That They Used to Be Christians

I remembered years ago when I read a now defunct atheist blog who admitted he used to be a Christian. What he meant that he used to be a Christian is that he was once a Roman Catholic. The average world today considers Roman Catholicism as well as other pseudo-Christian groups to be Christian when they aren't. Another atheist said he used to be a Christian until he read the Bible and found passages that horrified him. But there's one truth in that and that's those who criticize the Bible most are those who read it least. They haven't seen the context of events like why God ordered the destruction of evil civilizations. 
The "God's Not Dead" movies are somewhat lacking but this scene really makes think of atheists who claim they were once Christians. In this clip, notice how Professor Radisson claims that he used to be a devoted Christian. Just because someone came from an Evangelical background or family doesn't mean they're Christians. They may …

Pro-Homosexuality Media's Selective Outrage

Homosexuality is a result of man's fallen state (Romans 1:26-27, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10). It's a result of man's unrighteousness and the need to be reconciled. It's no surprise how homosexuality now fills secular entertainment. How often is the LGBT media already invading the media slowly but surely teaching nothing is wrong with homosexuality. It's best for anyone not to spend time over-analyzing pro-homosexual music videos and movies. Instead, one should spend time to rebuking the act which in turn will rebuke anything that promotes the act. This also includes the selective outrage of homosexual media as a result of legalizing same sex marriage.

I thought about a couple of events that passed after the United States of America's Supreme Court legalized homosexual "marriages". Starbucks' CEO Howard Schlutz wouldn't accept any dealings with anyone who is for traditional marriage. You have homosexuals who always love to throw their outrage toward…

What's Wrong with the Ang Dating Daan Movement?

The Ang Dating Daan movement is by the Members Church of God International spearheaded by its pastor (and so-called "prophet") Eliseo Soriano.  While claiming to be an expositor of the Scriptures with his "Itanong Mo Kay Soriano" or "Ask Soriano" In English, this religious group actually isn't Christian as some of the ignorant would want to believe.  Though the group claims the Bible is their only authority (as some cults do) but the problem is that they believe only Eli Soriano may interpret the Scriptures.  This is utter heresy!  Not even a great man in the Scriptures, Charles Spurgeon ever made such a preposterous claim!  This is no better than the "true church" movement by Darwin Fish which is exposed by Pastor Phil Johnson as a heretical movement.  In fact, I'm not going to waste my time debating with ADD members, they are a total waste of my time as every other debate.
Unlike John F. Macarthur of Grace to You that actually encoura…

What Does Pisseth Against the Wall Mean?

It's really getting bad for some of my Independent Fundamental Baptist brethren to actually even take the words "pisseth against the wall" which appears at least six times in 1 Samuel 23:22, 1 Samuel 25:34, 1 Kings 14:10, 1 Kings 16:11, 1 Kings 21:21 and 2 Kings 9:8 where the King James actually has the words "pisseth against the wall".  Now I am a King James only-ist but I do not support the stupid interpretation of "pisseth against the wall" by some IFB preachers who have become in some way similar to the Catholic Faith Defenders that they argue against when they should spend their time soulwinning.  Actually I even heard that rather outrageous "pisseth against the wall" sermon by Steven Anderson that was so taken out of context.
So what does pisseth against the wall mean? Let us take a look at these six verses and take it on a exegetic view NOT an eisegetic (out of context) view:
1 Samuel 23:22- "And so more also do God unto the ene…

Never Say It's Just a Little Sin!

Many times we think that what's small won't kill but many times, we fail to see that what's small may also kill.  A small leak sinks a big ship.  A small spark can set a forest or a neighborhood or even a city on fire.  Likewise, sin even if it's just small damns the person for all eternity.  Words can't describe how heinous sin is and why it must be hated and why people require salvation from it.  Nobody can say, "But LORD it was just a small sin!" on Judgment Day.  Instead, He'll say what He said in Matthew 7:23 to let such people depart from Him, He never knew them because they weren't saved to start with.

Do you know how severe even one tiny sin is?  One sin was enough to damn the human race.  Adam and Eve didn't have to murder anybody nor do all the sin they wanted.  All they had to do was just commit that just one sin.  Likewise, everyone on this Earth is condemned even for just one sin that they commit.  Romans 5:12-14 warns that it wa…

Manny Pacquiao's Conversion: True or False?

Bro. Gerry Soliman of Solutions Finder Apologetics who I wish to soon meet in person has actually raised the issue of rumors that Pacquiao had returned to Roman Catholicism.  The truth of the matter is once saved, always saved.  That is a true Christian remains a true Christian no matter what the circumstances may be by God's grace and true faith in Christ continues by God's grace and not by man's effort.  Anybody who supposedly converted to Christianity but later fell away completely was never saved to begin with (1 John 2:19).  Friends, either you are saved or not and the kind of live you live tells the person you are.  Christians do good works only for God's glory, the works salvationist does it in a vain effort to save himself but fail.  By reading the entry from Bro. Gerry's blog, it looks like Pacquiao had a genuine conversion and not a false one.
I am really annoyed at how dirty Roman Catholic apologists have gotten who now also said that the pastor who prea…

Testimony of Former Iglesia Ni Cristo Member, Now a Born Again Christian

Editor's note: 
First and foremost, I would like to thank the Bereans for this wonderful story of a former Iglesia ni Cristo minister (or pastor), now he has become a Baptist Christian.  It's a sad story that some people have just jumped from one cult to another.  Some members of the Watchtower Society, Charismatic Movement or the Iglesia ni Cristo have left Roman Catholicism but they have never truly come to know the truth of salvation is by faith in Christ alone and that any good works after Christian life is but the grace of God at work in the believer.  Now for this brave testimony that I can really share after many years of searching for one testimony which I hope will further bring more INC members to Jesus Christ.

May I begin with a word of prayer that in the midst of all these trouble, I call upon Jesus Christ the Son of God who the Iglesia ni Cristo deny is indeed God, the only way to salvation, that they trust upon their works and church membership than Him alone.  I…
