The Sinner Hates the Bible Because It Knows All About Their Sinfulness!

I remembered when I was newly exposed to Bible studies, I really hated reading the Bible while I was still a Roman Catholic.  My mentality was, "The Pope said it, I agree with it.  That does it." and, "Well those Protestants can go ahead and read the Bible, it's not important."  But the more I started reading the Bible for myself, the more I realized why I hated it and the more I found out why my folks would not encourage me to read it daily.  The truth of the matter why I used to hate reading the Bible can be summed up as, "The reason you don't like the Bible you old sinner is because it knows all about you!"  I couldn't help but cringe reading even a Roman Catholic translation of the Bible because the very truth of the Gospel was still there.  But after I found the truth, I could not help but love reading the Bible because I cannot be saved and not love His Word.

Martin Luther called the Law of God as a hammer that shatters our self-righteousness and a mirror that shows us our sin, it does not go with the worldview that man is basically good.  People tend to think nothing is wrong with them because they are religious even if the lifestyle shows a habitual pattern of sin.  Take a man who has several vices such as gambling, womanizing and alcoholism yet believes himself to be a good person because he does acts of charity, he is deeply religious and goes to a Roman Catholic worship service every Sunday.  Man's idea of salvation is doing more good than bad to merit Heaven compared to the perfect righteousness of God.  Luther took the great risk to translate the Bible into German so the people can read God's Word for themselves.  The Roman Catholic institution forbade Bible reading for a time because if people knew the truth they would leave the system.  Besides, the Bible also attacked the Roman Catholic idea of faith plus works or that salvation is all about doing everything they command rather than what Christ commands.  They believe salvation must be maintained by one's own good works instead of the Biblical view that good works is the effect, not the cause of salvation.  

Atheistic governments hate the Bible because it greatly speaks about sin.  The atheist view is that there is no God (but they repeatedly show their hatred for God), that man is basically good or that there are no such thing as moral absolutes.  Many atheist writers attack the God of the Bible as cruel and unjust while they hypocritically believe that there's no good, no evil and just plain pitiless indifference.  The more one reads the Bible, the more one understands why God had to wipe out sinful civilizations.  If sin is just a fantasy word then there is no ground to condemn God as unjust but He is just and fair.  The sinful lifestyles of Sodom and Gomorrah is so high that those diseased cities had to be destroyed.  The Canaanites were so wicked that God had to judge them that only those who threw themselves at His mercy and forgiveness (like Rahab did) were spared from that wrath.  When it comes to sin, atheists think it's just a fantasy word and they inwardly hate God because they want to live their lives their way.  It's no wonder why the song "I Did It My Way" is a very popular song while Christian hymns are so rejected.

The Bible describes the horrendous nature of sin in a way that the fallen man hates the idea that they are lost sinners.  The fallen man says, "I can save myself." but the Bible says, "You cannot save yourself."  The salvation many are so used to believing is, "If you do more good then you are okay." but that is not what the Bible says.  Romans 3:10-23 declare the sinfulness of man that all are guilty before God and that none is righteous because all have sinned.  James 2:10-11 declare that if you break even one Law then you are guilty of all and that you are short of God's glory.  Even if lusting after a woman is not legally adultery but it breaks the precepts concerning adultery.  If you hate someone, you are already a murderer by God's standard.  As Galatians 3:24 says that the Law is our schoolmaster that brings us to Christ.  Only by preaching through the Bible can the person really see the fact they need salvation and when a person is saved, they learn to love God's Law and they start saying, "Lord you saved me, now I am yours to command."

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 …
