Do We Forget Satan Also Infiltrates Churches?

It is very easy to detect some of Satan's more obvious attacks.  While reading about the Roman Catholic use of the "Holy Office" or the "Spanish Inquisition", it was a very obvious head-on attack against born again Christianity.  It does not look like Rome wants to be their friend when the Inquisition gets busy in doing all forms of obviously bloody tortures to giving them painful deaths in the hopes of maintaining their power and grip towards people's lives.  It is obvious that when Muslim terrorists kill Christian missionaries that they are not even posing as false friends.  Any direct form of persecution is an obvious red alert that Satan really hates Christians.  But remember, Satan is only allowed to inflict harm on Christians with God's permission as mentioned in Job.

What one must note is that the war against Christianity is never always on the obvious.  Remember Jesus warned in Matthew 7:14-16 of wolves that come in sheep's clothing.  It is a figure of speech that describes the false prophets.  They do seem harmless but inside, they are just as dirty as every other lost sinner.  There have been many ways Satan infiltrates the church.  Paul warns in 2 Corinthians 11:26 and Galatians 2:4 that there is always the peril of false brethren.  2 Corinthians 11:14 warns that Satan can disguise himself as an angel of light.  There are many ways he can induce deception that it can deceive Christians for some time.  What is worse is that many of these people who teach false doctrines are so blinded to think that they are servants of God when they are ministers of Satan.

The great deception behind Evangelicals and Catholics Together is done in the name of tolerance.  When the late John Paul II opened the Mass of Pardon for all the atrocities done in the past, I remembered how many Roman Catholic folks of mine tell me that, "Look you bigot, Pope John Paul II did not even call us to kill you Protestants but it is time to consider you as our brothers and sisters in Christ."  Some even raise the late Martin Luther King Jr. and say, "He may have been named after the late Martin Luther but he certainly bridged the gap between Catholics and Protestants."  At first, my defenses were down but after reading more of the Roman Catholic institution's history and beliefs especially about salvation, I start to doubt the salvation of pastors who claim to be Christians but embrace Roman Catholics as brothers and sisters in Christ instead of heretics who need to be reached out with the Biblical truth.  Even the Jesuit agents are becoming bolder and bolder when they say, "Well Roman Catholics are our brothers and sisters in Christ!"

Another is that an institution may seem Christian because they preach salvation by faith alone and/or go against sinfulness.  It is a problem when a Christian may end up thinking that a certain church is a Bible-believing church because they believe in salvation by faith alone in Jesus Christ but surprise, they teach Antinomianism directly or indirectly.  I have no reason to believe any pastor is a pastor of God if he preaches eternal security but denies God's life changing grace plus teaching that salvation is a license to sin.  Only fake converts would dare embrace such a stupid heresy because those who are truly saved do not want to keep living in sin.  One can also preach against sinful activities so fiercely but adds works to staying saved.  They can also go as far as to teach that the Biblical truth of the perseverance of the saints is nothing more than a license to sin.  Both of them are also very misguided.

The best weapon against infiltration is by being firmly rooted on the Word of God.  It is time to really do verse by verse or expository preaching.  Enough of taking verses out of context.  It is time to do exegesis.  More importantly, one must always pray to God for discernment whether or not this person is a brethren or a false brethren that needs to be lovingly confronted with the Word of God.  It is not a struggle of flesh and blood but against the demons that control people.  Remember even these infiltrators are still given the chance to be saved and they are part of the mission field.

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 …
