The Poor Excuse of Roman Catholic Parishes to Keep Allowing Sinful Members to Attend Masses!

You can go ahead and call me names, accuse me of lying and making things up, go ahead badmouth me but I must tell this truth that needs to be revealed.  Having grown up in a Roman Catholic family that's been very religious, some people even pray the Rosary a lot, even pray the novenas during the evenings, I am sick and tired of hearing Roman Catholic logic.  I've been observing things and all I can say is, "Actions speak louder than words!"  As said, I am now a born again Christian by the grace of God, my life has been changed only by the grace of God (Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 2:11-14), in the Roman Catholic institution there is really no real repentance.  What is the issue I want to raise?  I would really want to raise the issue that the Roman Catholic institution is really what Jesus calls in Matthew 23:3 as the Pharisees say and do not.  The Roman Catholic priests are in fact the Pharisees of today no doubt.  

The issue has to be this- why are the Roman Catholic parishes still allowing people who are living in what they call as "mortal sins" as adulterers, rapists, murderers, pedophiles, drunkards and the list can go on to still attend the masses.  Just talk about it how so many people hate the fact I criticized them for their sinful lifestyles and their fellow Roman Catholics knowingly or unknowingly condoning to such sins.  While the average Roman Catholic who is trying their best to live a pure life may question such incidents, I don't.  My answer may offend but the truth offends as much as it can't uplift the mood but I'd rather be bombarded by harsh truths than to be doped by a well-written lie to lift my spirits.  A good example would be like a Baptist preacher would be asking a Roman Catholic choir to why they would still allow a man they are are 100% aware of the fact that he is a habitual womanizer, a porn addict, he badmouths his wife a lot, he is fond of dirty language and worse, his womanizing has led him to an adulterous live-in relationship with another man's wife whose husband died out of stress because of her.  Their answer?  After a deep thought, these group of friends gave me this for an answer, "Well as you see, we are hoping if he keeps attending Mass, if he keeps singing in the choir he and his mistress will repent."  That answer is just plain stupid.  Worse comes to worst, some parishioners dared to even say, "Well there's some good in them, look how prayerful they are and how much money they give per week.  Thanks to them, we are able to install the new airconditioner!"  All I can say is I feel sorry for such people at the same time irritated at such poor reasoning and not to mention the love for money which is NO SURPRISE since the Roman Catholic institution is governed by paying ridiculous prices for very long Masses that just don't seem to end!  If they read 1 Corinthians 5, wayward members are supposedly put aside to avoid contamination in the Church.  But since they are not part of the Church, they don't really follow those rules.

By allowing the person to keep attending Mass and they are living a dirty life, in effect it is allowing them to say, "It's okay, just go to Confession, pay for an indulgence and it'll be okay to take communion and attend Mass!"  Folks that is not genuine repentance because true repentance of sin produces results, not repeated sinful patterns!  Such actions will make the person sin more and more, besides God's grace is very much absent in ritualism, as said man needs to be born again, it's a start over never an add on!  According to the history of Christianity, when Martin Luther went to the Vatican and realized not only how insulting the indulgences were to the free gift of salvation but also just how sinful the insides were.  The more Martin Luther got into his religion, the more he found out just how horrid Roman Catholicism is by its actions.  While the priests spoke of holiness and themselves as holy and sinless, like the Pharisees they were breaking their own rules.  During Mass, priests even told indecent jokes to each other like toilet jokes and sex jokes.  In an event in the Vatican, Martin Luther even described how a drunken orgy happened in a dinner among priests and cardinals.  Eventually Martin Luther exposed the histories of the Popes and just how much of successors of Caiaphas they were!  Jesus warned in Matthew 7:16 that by their fruits, they shall be known and I've revealed a good portion.  Jesus was definitely not a bit wrong to call the Pharisees as hypocrites who devoured widows' houses and for a pretentious act make long prayers, were careful about rituals but never the laws of mercy, clean on the outside but dirty on the inside and while looking righteous were full of hypocrisy and iniquity!  So it's no surprise really that the priests are really having such a sinful private life and they could really condone to the sinfulness of their members as long as they make good money out of them.  While the average Roman Catholics could afford to criticize the Pharisees, they fail to see the parallelism between their religious leaders and the religious leaders of Jesus' day.  All I can say is that Isaiah 64:6 is right, the righteousness of man are but filthy rags- so much for teaching works salvation.  Ye must be born again!

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…
