Loving Christ Enough to Loving People Enough to Tell Them the Truth That They Are Lost!

There is the statement, "You can tell the truth without loving but you can never love without telling the truth."  Lost people tend to say, "You are not being loving with telling us our religion is wrong."  The opposite is quite true that when I tell them that they are lost, it's because the Lord Jesus Christ loves the sinner too much to sugarcoat the truth of the Gospel, that they are lost and headed to Hell.  Today's "love gospel" is one gospel which is not another and it is not real love.  It's very often to see people accuse the true Christians of just looking for fights whenever they attack other people's religion while they would see the "beauty of Christianity" in nominal Christians who accept other people's religions.  One of them even praised the late Pope John Paul II for ecumenical dialogues or the incumbent Pope Francis for continuing the same ecumenical dialogue.

1 Corinthians 13:6 says that love does not rejoice in iniquity but rejoices in the truth.  If you love the person, you tell them the truth out of concern for their well-being.  If you love people, you don't want to withhold the truth just because they will be upset or angry.  A parent who loves his or her child gives just punishment for the child as Proverbs 13:24 says that whoever spares the rod hates the child but whoever loves their child punishes them when needed.  The same goes for why Christians tell people their religion is false and that they are on their way to Hell.  If I told any Roman Catholic that Mary can't intercede for him or her and that he or she should go directly to Jesus for salvation, it's because I care for that lost soul and not because I want to stir up a fight.

If they want to say that Jesus was being "unloving" by worldly standards then they are taking Scriptures out of context.  If Jesus believed in tolerating every other religion (and I remembered somebody told me the Bible tells him to accept other religions, clearly the person is taking things out of context), He wouldn't have mentioned in John 14:6 that He is the only Way to the Father.  He would have not warned in Matthew 7:13-14 that there are many who enter the broad way to destruction and only a few who enter the narrow way to life.  Jesus did not go by a majority vote but stuck by the truth because He is holy and righteous.  He did not tolerate the false religion of His day and He would not do so today.

The reason why Jesus would not accept other people's religions as true is because they based on Satan's deception leading multitudes into Hell.  Remember when mankind fell, anything mattered to them but God and they would care less about offending God as long as they are accepted by men.  That is the total depravity of man at work where they need to be saved in order to be regenerated into a new life.  People are foolish when they worship the work of their hands because their gods could not save (Isaiah 2:8).  People are foolish to think that their own personal righteousness will get them straight to Heaven (Isaiah 64:6).  God sent first prophets, second apostles and later preachers after both the age of the prophets and apostles ended to warn people to repent of their evil ways, seek God and live.  He sent Jesus Christ His only begotten Son but what did the world do?  Most of the people just rejected those whom God sent and I am not surprised considering Jesus warned in John 15:18-19 that they hated Him before they hated His followers.  

If there's any proof of real love that is so visible is when the Christian chooses to endure suffering to the point of death rather than compromise the truth.  When Christians choose to endure to the end, it's the grace of God at work in their lives.  Apart from that, they have no ability to endure to the end but because God is with them, they possess it.  When Christians chose to be die instead of renounce their faith, it was also because they love the multitudes they were preaching the truth to.  They did not want to compromise the Gospel with the world that's why they chose to die.  While it seems foolish to the human senses but it's that kind of love that caused Christianity to grow in the midst of persecution.  They endured persecution because they love people enough to warn them that they are lost.

Sorry Homosexuals, God Owns the Rainbow, Not You!

I found this absolutely funny picture and the maker got it right about homosexual activists getting mad at the rainbow light in the Noah's Park exhibit. Who could forget the time when homosexual marriage was made legal that those who are for it used the rainbow on their pictures on Facebook profiles or in other social networks. They claimed the rainbow as their color. I don't apologize for speaking the truth. The Bible is God's covenant with man and not homosexuality's banner of success. Genesis 9:14-17 - "And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: and I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. And God said …

Politically Correct Organizations Need to Take the Beam Out of Their Own Eye First

Politically correct organizations meddling in worldwide affairs is not anything new. Whether it's the Vatican, the European Union, the United Nations, Human Rights Watch and any organization driven by political correctness (and not all of them are Illuminati or Jesuit ran but they're all still dupes of Satan and most of them don't even know it) it's always a problem that they are indeed meddling. While meddling isn't inherently wrong but here's some problems with politically correct organizations:
They only meddle when it's convenient for them as they are guilty of both selective outrage and selective justice.They meddle in the affairs of others without considering their own yard first.They meddle like as if they own the world.
It's stupid how political correctness demands Christians not to judge others but they end up failing to judge themselves. They are always taking "Judge not and you will not be judged." out of context without knowing wha…

The Error of Comparing Protestantism to New Atheism

The amazing blindness of is too amazing isn't it? I just read an article written yesterday which compares Protestantism to New Atheism. As much as the article is written as professionally as possible in contrast to some self-proclaimed apologists I've had a lot of useless arguments with but I'd like to give a friendly rebuke to the writer Karlo Broussard. It's my sincere prayer that Broussard will see the truth from the pages of the Scripture. 
The writer commits the fallacy of categorical error. He compares Sola Scriptura with Richard Dawkins' views on science. Here's one of the statements that really should be considered a categorical error:
Just as science is the only tool Dawkins and company are willing to use to arrive at knowledge of the natural truth, Protestants use only the Bible for determining what is revealed truth. And as many modern atheists reject anything that science cannot detect, so too do Protestants reject any teaching that is…

The Quest For "Unlimited Human Progress" is Really Destroying the Environment

Every time I read from the news of nature's decline due to pollution, how food supply can soon drop anytime, how plant and animal deaths are massively happening I can't help but blame it on one factor: SIN. Yes, sin and most people think it's a fantasy word. It wasn't just a fantasy word that kicked Adam and Eve out of Eden and cursed the Earth with all its imperfections. Sin brought disease and destruction to mankind. Unfortunately, man is to blame for the wanton destruction of the environment all in the name of "unlimited human progress".

You can't divorce science from the Creator and that's a fact. Yet you have people who want to benefit from science without considering the Creator. Christian scientists were conservative because they were aware of one truth that science without ethics is meaningless. I'd like to expand it to say that studying creation without the Creator is absolutely stupid. People can claim that removing God is the key to &qu…

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…

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…

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…
