The Simple Man with Knowledge of Scripture Is Better than the Pope or Any Council!

Reading through the history of the Papacy, one can see how often one Pope contradicts the other.  One Pope says differently and the next Pope says something differently.   The events of Roman Catholicism's change of doctrine disproves the heresy that the Pope has been guided by the Holy Spirit that he does not make any error when it comes to doctrine.  Current events involving Pope Francis' errors like saying Christians cannot be manufacturing weapons for self-defense, that having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is dangerous and now he says Jews may get saved without Jesus Christ.  Please, do not give me the excuse that the Pope can be in error for all he pleases when he is not seated on the papal throne because many errors were made by previous Popes and this Pope seated on the papal throne.

The Bible was banned from the public and anybody who was caught sharing the Scriptures with commoners was declared a heretic with many of them becoming martyrs for Christ.  Many great Bible scholars before the Reformation, during the Reformation and after the Reformation were crushed by the Inquisition.  Whether it was a picture of impaled heads on spikes, the Inquisition's inhuman methods of torture or being burned alive all because they translated the Bible for common man.  When William Tyndale translated the Bible, he had more authority than the Pope or the councils thus he had to be burned.  When Martin Luther triggered the first part of the Protestant Reformation, the Reformers had become a threat to the Pope's authority proving he was no successor of Peter but of Caiaphas.  When the Bible became more and more read by the common people, the more the authority of the Pope has the so-called "Vicar of Christ" got threatened because more and more people began to call him "Antichrist" because he is an Antichrist.

While I was still a Roman Catholic, I was just simply afraid to read the Bible for myself.  When I started having Bible studies, I soon protested saying, "Pastor, what about priests?" or "Pastor, why do we have to study the Bible?"  The more I studied the Bible, the more I found out why I was afraid to read it.  The great Martin Luther revealed the very nature of God's Law is a hammer that shatters the very self-righteous being of man, it is a mirror that reveals all our iniquity and imperfections, and it is the same whip that drives us to the cross.  Galatians 3:24 describes that the Law is our schoolmaster that brings us to Christ.  I could not imagine myself ever receiving Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior if it was not for the Law that first convicted me of my sinfulness.  It was the same Law that made me receive Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.  If I was not led to repentance of sin as imperfect as it was, I would have not gone to Jesus Christ to be saved from my sins and never in my sins.  It was that Bible that showed me the way outside of manmade tradition to Scriptural truth.

The same goes for any so-called Christian organization that relies on its council members than the Word of God.  The very testimony of former cultists who came from so-called Christian organizations also revealed how they got saved after they studied the Bible for themselves.  If one took the Bible into context, any of the cult's misuse and abuse of Scripture will be put to the light.  Any so-called prophecies they make about themselves with a verse taken out of context gets exposed to be a sham.  When people do not read and study the Bible for themselves, they are susceptible to being controlled and manipulated by any cult leader like the Pope or the executive ministers of any religion.  When they study the Bible for themselves in context, they become stronger than any Pope or council.  That is why it is very important to reach out the youth with the Word of God.

Do Feminists Ever Realize That Women Shouldn't Use Acts of Violence Against Men?

It's irritating to be told that men shouldn't use violence on women but the other way around is okay. No, it's not okay to hit anyone regardless of gender out of anger or frustration. If men shouldn't hit women except in acts of self-defense then the other way round should apply. But you have to remember the stupidity of selective justice and selective outrage of feminists. They think men should respect them while they think discriminating against men is okay. Their quest for "equality" is nothing more than a big joke.

Why is it usually a big fuzz when a man hits a woman but not so many people react if a woman hits a man? That kind of hypocrisy is worth addressing. They say men shouldn't hit women because they are "weaker" but is it okay for a person of lower rank to attack a person of higher rank? The word submission doesn't exist in the feminist dictionary unless it's men submitting to them. Whether they like it or not the husband is t…

You Can't Preach About God's Love For Sinners Without Preaching About His Wrath Against Sin

It's a problem that so many quack preachers love to preach God's love for sinners but not about God's wrath against them because He must punish both the sin and the sinner. Everything from God's love to His wrath is dictated by the fact that He is holy and you are not. The message about God's love for sinners will make no sense if you don't preach about God's wrath against sin first. I remembered listening to "Hell's Best Kept Secret" and "True and False Conversion" by Ray Comfort. There was this point where Kirk Cameron talked about what if I sold my property to save someone from a disease. If the person doesn't know anything about the disease then my selling of all my property to pay for the badly needed treatment won't make sense. Another illustration was all about the flight. You have to tell the person that the parachute is not meant to improve the flight but to tell the person that it's for emergency reasons. If you…

It's Not Okay to Be Blindly Loyal to the Pope and His Army of Pharisees

Some rabid Roman Catholics keep sensationalizing the sins of fraud pastors (as if true born again Christians ever support them) while they keep hiding the sins of their priests or Pharisees. They also say that born again Christians are blindly loyal to the pastor never mind that they are blindly loyal to the Pope and his Pharisees. Blind loyalty towards a a prosperity gospel pastor, a so-called successor of a so-called last messenger or any quack preacher is no different than blind loyalty towards the Pope and his Pharisees. Worse, Roman Catholics believe that their Pharisees are instruments in saving their souls or that the Pope supposedly holds salvation in his hands never mind all the priestly scandals are telling them otherwise.

I could remember how often Bible reading is discouraged (and yet some of these rabid Roman Catholics tell me I should read the Bible and I can't get wrong with it) because it could drive me crazy from reading it. Some Roman Catholics I've met &quo…

Don't Even Think About Legalizing Prostitution or Sex Trade

There's some people who seek to legalize prostitution. Some "rational" atheists are already talking about prostitution should be legalized so it could be controlled by the government. The claim that "studies" show that prohibition doesn't work is a lie straight from the pits of Hell. The Israelites were doing sin not because God forbade it but because they were disobedient and the rulers did nothing to prevent those sins. It's not surprising is that the same people who seek to legalize prostitution also want to legalize narcotics and hard liquor all in the name of "succeeding in the war against them".

The logic behind legalizing prostitution is that so the government can control them and tax them. But the problem with the quest to legalize prostitution is that it encourages the sin rather than discourage it. The problem is not the war against prostitution but ignoring Ecclesiastes 8:11. Do you know why the war against prostitution isn't wo…

Is Salvation in Peter's Hands (As Well as the Popes) Because Jesus Supposedly Gave Him the Literal Keys of Heaven?

According to a self-proclaimed Roman Catholic apologist (who I'll probably dub as Mr. Whistle when I mention him) he claimed that salvation is in the hands of Peter because Jesus gave the former the keys of Heaven. The guy is clearly taking things out of context with what he says. I wonder does he even bother to check out the idioms of the Bible since some passages use a figure of speech instead of speaking everything literally?

If he can't get Matthew 16:18 correctly where he said that Peter the Rock even when the Good News Translation for Roman Catholics says otherwise (and worse for them Peter is differentiated as a rock and the Rock is clearly not him) then he also misinterprets Matthew 16:19. Let's try to understand Matthew 16:19 with the keys and what they really mean. In his interpretation he's already telling everyone that born again Christians should just go back to the Roman Catholic institution because the Pope supposedly holds salvation in his hands. I don&…

Atheists With Abusive Mindsets Do Exist

It's a myth over the modern world that there's no such thing as an atheist with an abusive mindset. I can see atheists who claim that abuses only come through theism. I don't deny that there's such a thing as religious people with an abusive mindset such as Roman Catholic fanatics, Islamic extremists and any form of religious extremism. The problem of the claim is that it denies the reality that there's such a thing as atheists who have an abusive mindset. One such person is the late Christopher Hitchens who claims that he has the right o treat religion with ridicule, hatred and contempt. Isn't that an example of an atheist with an abusive mindset? Sad to say, Hitchens himself is still cursing God from the pits of Hell. Christians should pray that Richard Dawkins wouldn't make the same wrong decision as Hitchens.

One horrible atheist blogger claimed he was indeed one of the most scientific people on Earth. Just reading his blog alone is so tiresome that I&…

Why This Ministry DOES NOT Support the Westboro Baptist Church

The Westboro Baptist Church is a so-called Baptist institution founded by Fred Phelps who is a lawyer and a theologian. Is it your average Baptist assembly or is this another of Satan's brain children? I would like to present my stand why this ministry does not support the Westboro Baptist Church and why as a Baptist, I do not support them either:
The founder Fred Phelps who serves as its pastor. I do find it disturbing he says that he supports sound doctrine of good Christian preachers of the past like John Calvin and Charles Haddon Spurgeon but his doctrine is not sound at all. His preaching is definitely not balanced. While I do appreciate him attacking the Great Whore of Revelation, apostasy, ecumenism, homosexuality, abortion, pornography and a lot of sins however he is no better than the Roman Catholic institution which he frequently criticizes. Although he claims to be a Calvinist and a Spurgeon fan, however many of those who are Calvinist preachers like Paul Washer, John …
