More Often Than Not, Roman Catholics Tend To Have Contradicting Views Against Born Again Christianity!

I remembered how after I got saved by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, I abandoned the Roman Catholic system because of its heresies and lies, teaching salvation is maintained by works rather than good works are a result of God's grace, that it's anathema to know you are truly saved and every other unbiblical garbage, I have then realized how Roman Catholics tend to have contradicting views against born again Christianity.

I have noticed how the mudslingers first can say, "Well those Protestants say they are saved by faith.  Wow, I can imagine their lifestyle that they sin all they want."  I have noticed how the Catholic Clips page (maybe it's ran by a person who attends church in a Jesuit parish due to the fact that the priest in the clips looks like a Jesuit priest) have more than once mocked the doctrine of faith alone.  It shows the Protestant Christian as a person who could care less about lifestyle.  I have noticed how many Catholic apologist sites and blogs tend to misrepresent the stand of born again Christians.  They tend to think that born again Christians (no I'm not talking about professing believers but true converts) just want to live their life the way they want it.

However they are more than willing to do a heel face turn when it comes to born again Christians with their conservative lifestyle and stand.  I noticed how in Catholic schools, people tend to be very liberated especially in the Jesuit schools because take note, the Jesuits are the first class, elite order of priests in the Roman Catholic system.  Most of the students in Jesuit schools come from very rich families.  I have noticed how a lot of people who attend church in a Jesuit ran parish are also very rude, crude and act like as if they have a license to sin like you can even see a married man go to Mass with his paramour, you can see adulterers and adulteresses not getting any discipline at all, it's all about sinning from Monday to Friday, confession on Saturday (there is NO real repentance in the confessional) then they get communion on Sunday - rinse and repeat.

Looking at this, I remember the words of Jesus Christ in Matthew 7:15-20 which says, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.  Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."  Although salvation is never by good works (and any attempt to gain salvation is a  dead work), but one's salvation results to good works.  Titus 2:11-14 says only God's grace can change a person from a life of sin to a life of service.  Whenever a person gets saved by God's grace, God will change the person for the better.  I know some Christians may have had a bad end like Lot, Samson, Solomon or Uzziah but all their good works in the past were proofs that they were indeed truly saved and that while they may suffer loss, their good works for Christ will still be rewarded and go to Heaven, but with less reward than others but you cannot deny, they still endured to the end even if in between, they had backslid horribly.

Works salvation itself is nothing more than hypocrisy and arrogance.  It seeks to take the glory for itself.  After all, let us compare the unsaved person and the saved person, the dead work and the good work.  A dead work is when a person tries to do anything good to please God, hoping all those acts of goodness (as far as civility and MANMADE tradition is concerned) will get him to Heaven.  On the other hand, a good work is when the saved person, out of gratitude and God's grace does only every good that one can for the glory of God and denies any part in doing acts of righteousness.  At the same time, works salvation is nothing more than a balancing scale where you do good works to outweigh your bad works while Christian holiness is all about the perfection of God, that even one sin is so offensive you need God's mercy which in turn, changes the life of the person for the better.

Who Will You Believe: Pope Francis or the Bible?

Here's a cartoon of how tragic the afterlife for Roman Catholics would be when they realize that they needed a real, personal relationship with Christ to enter into Heaven. As I grew up as a Roman Catholic I didn't really care about the Bible. I even hear some Roman Catholics are told to never read the Bible for themselves because not everyone should be allowed to read it. The priest often says that reading the Bible alone will confuse you so you need their extrabiblical doctrine. Worse, they are confusing Sola Scriptura with Solo Scriptura. Born again Christians have their tradition but it's dictated by the Bible as a guiding principle to one's lifestyle. It's not that they read only the Bible but rather they have the Bible as their only principle for Christian tradition.

What is this personal relationship? As much as some pastors feel like the term personal Lord and Savior can be dangerous or "personal Savior" may suggest that Jesus is a genie than Lor…

When God Says No, He Means No

When God says no He means no! Do you know why the world is in a mess right now? It's all because Adam and Eve couldn't follow one simple rule that was to never eat of the tree of the fruit of life. I'd like to imagine it that God may have even put an "Off Limits" sign on it. But Satan himself always finds a way to convince people to break the rules.
Genesis 3:1-5 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

What Christians Can Learn From Joshua and Caleb's Confidence in Seizing the Promised Land

Being a Christian means you can be stuck in a pickle. Today's lesson will be from Numbers 13-14 which talks about the twelve spies to the Land of Canaan. I think any Christian leader going into much trouble today may find this as both a source of vexation and encouragement at the same time. It's a source of vexation because there are so many people like the rebellious Israelites in the wilderness. It's a source of encouragement because it's a reminder that God is still in charge.

The story of Numbers 13 talks about the spying. We see one member of each of the tribes that were given a political inheritance were there. We can see their names are as follows:
Numbers 13:4-13 And these were their names: of the tribe of Reuben, Shammua the son of Zaccur. Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori. Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh. Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal the son of Joseph. 8 Of the tribe of Ephraim, Oshea the son of Nun. Of the tribe of Benjamin…

Drunk Driving is Dangerous to Society

Consider this picture of a drunk driving incident. This is the car that the late Princess Diana Spencer, the late Dodi Al Fayed and the late Henri Paul (the driver) were using before their tragic demise. What was also interesting to note is that their driver had high dosages of alcohol prior to this gruesome incident. I don't want to talk about the conspiracy side of things but the whole ugly picture that drunk driving kills. But even after this incident and many similar ones before it is that many people still do it even if the consequences are clear as day.

The Bible warns that being a drunkard is one of the marks of an unsaved person:
1 Corinthians 6:9-10  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, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Modernization is Not an Excuse to Dismiss Badly Needed Old-Fashioned Revivals

I remembered reading through Jeremiah can be a chore because the events of that book continue to repeat itself. At the same time, reading through Jeremiah can be a comfort because the prophet chose to stand by God's command even if he momentarily stopped preaching (Jeremiah 20:5). One verse that is used to call for old fashioned revivals is Jeremiah 6:16 which says:
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
It's a problem you start calling for old-fashioned revivals and people will call you outdated or a neanderthal. While there's nothing wrong with modern technology but the problem is when people only care if something is modern. While modernization can be used to evangelize but it can also be used to spread the influence of sin. The same printing press that allowed the late Martin Luther to publish Bibles was also u…

The Prosperity Gospel is an Enemy of Cheerful Giving

I remembered having a lecture on the prosperity gospel. One of the worst lies of the prosperity gospel is that giving money or the tithes and offerings to their pastors will turn you into a millionaire, God will spare them from trouble and that they can have the desires of their wicked heart. That's one of the worst heresies I've heard. On the contrary the more faithful you are to God the more you should expect enemy attacks. Some people I know are faithful in giving and their tithes and offerings yet they are not living as billionaires. The motive of giving in the prosperity gospel is to gain the false promise that God wants us happy, healthy and wealthy all the time. That's not cheerful giving isn't it?

If you give money to God in exchange for material blessings then something is pretty wrong. It's a terrible misapplication of Malachi 3:9-10. Do they even know that the blessings where there isn't enough room to receive it isn't all about becoming a billio…

Politically Correct Parenting Raises Spoiled Brats

Politically correct parenting is already the norm of parenting in this fallen world. What most parents don't see is that everyone needs a healthy dose of both Vitamin Yes and Vitamin No. But like anything beneficial in excess or in scarcity too many people have either too much or too little of Vitamin Yes and Vitamin No. While it's not okay to have an overdose of Vitamin No but what's so upsetting is that many people today take the opposite extreme. They aren't giving enough Vitamin No ad are given too much Vitamin Yes. Either way both are overly misguided approaches in parenting.

Is there anything wrong with giving the child what they want? It depends on what the child wants. If a child wants something that's going to honor God (ex. They want their own copy of the Bible that they can read for themselves) then the parent should say yes if what the child wants is God honoring. But if the child only wants to be like the secular children with all their nice stuff the…
