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.

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…
