The Unregenerate Human Heart Embraces Sin with Wide Open Doors and Welcomed by Both Arms!

The whole idea of man is basically good is baloney because the Bible warns of the fallen nature of man. Jeremiah 17:9 has the Bible call the heart as something that is desperately wicked or deceitful above all things. There is really the terrible truth about the evil of the unregenerate heart. With what Jesus said in Matthew 7:15-20, we really read the sad truth that a bad tree cannot bear a bad fruit. The unregenerate heart is a bad tree that cannot bear good fruit - it may perform works but they cannot be considered good because they are not for the greater glory of God. The unregenerate heart welcomes sin with open arms because it is fallen and needs to be regenerated.

Romans 1:21-31 for ten verses warns of the evils of the unregenerate heart. When the foolish heart is darkened the consequences follows namely (1) professing to be wise to be fools, (2) they have worshiped the creation instead of the Creator, (3) they are given up to their lusts that make them dishonor themselves in many ways given up to vile affections, likewise that even people of the same gender are doing it among themselves as one of the consequences, (4) they do not want to retain God in their knowledge so they are given over to a reprobate mind, and (5) they are now filled with all types of characteristics of the sinful man because they are filled with unrighteousness where people are sexually immoral, wicked, covetous, malicious, envious, murderous, bickerers, deceitful, bearing false witness, spreading gossip, backbiting, hating God, despiteful, arrogant, braggart, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, no word of honor, no natural affection, implacable, unmerciful as a lifestyle that shows that a person is in desperate need of salvation.

I cannot deny that there are morally good people who are unregenerate in God's eyes but such people will be exposed as doers of iniquity in the Last Day. If they are not living so lewdly they might be involved in some form of wickedness such as doing the right thing to save one's self or the worship of idols. Nobody can say, "Well I can enter Heaven for keeping most of the Commandments." because in God's standard, even one sin is enough to kick a person out of the Book of Life. Deuteronomy 31:26 says that the Book of the Law is a witness against sin. Romans 3:19 says that by the Law of God, all are held guilty before God. If you are angry without a cause, you have been guilty of murder before God's eyes. if you look at a woman with lust, you are guilty of adultery. The more I look at God's Law, the more I realize that I did not deserve salvation and that when I don't want to live a sinful life, it's only because of God's grace (Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 2:11-14).

There is no way that a lost sinner can do regenerate one's heart himself or herself, as Psalm 73:13 declares that washing the heart was in vain. Proverbs 20:9 says that nobody has kept their heart pure. Fortunately God has a remedy for the unregenerate heart of lost sinners who are broken and repentant. Ezekiel 11:19-21 and 36:26-27 says that a new heart is given to the believer. What happens is that the heart of stone is replaced with a heart of flesh and the Spirit of God is placed into them. The sweet Holy Spirit in John 16:8-9 has the Holy Spirit rebuke of sin which in turn will make the person walk in God's statutes and keep His statutes and do them. What the natural man is incapable of, God's grace makes them capable to overpower any sin by His Holy Spirit.

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…

The Error of Comparing Protestantism to New Atheism

The amazing blindness of Catholic.com 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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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 …
