Unsaved People Want Anything but God's Remedy for Sin to Relieve Them of Their Guilty Conscience

Do you know why lost people get involved in a lot of stuff but read the Bible when they have a guilty conscience?  It is because the Bible exposes their sin while they think that the sinful pleasures of the world will forever silence their guilty conscience.  It can be observed how wretched, unsaved sinners would do whatever sinful or anything else but God to silence their guilty conscience.  John 3:19-20 addresses the sad truth that men love darkness rather than light.  It is because they love their sin and they want to continue sinning.  

The more I think about how drugs, therapy and entertainment are used it is because of man's fallen short of the glory of God.  People do drugs trying to forget about their problem.  It is not only limited to smoking weed or taking meth but it is also when people get addicted to anti-depressants.  I have nothing against therapy because it is part of medical science but people tend to rely too much on technology than read the Bible when they are down.  Speaking of entertainment the popularity of blasphemy and filth is because fallen humanity is in rebellion against God.  You have Jesus Christ the Son of God presented as a myth or fairy tale when in reality, He will judge everyone and that He created the world and that He is the Second Person of the Godhead.  The world today offers several alternatives but when you tell them of God's forgiveness for sin then expect these sinful people to cast you out.  Reading through Jeremiah has been one of the best forms of spiritual therapy that a Christian can have if they ever feel like giving up.

A good example is the atheist and one's atheism.  Romans 1:20-25 addresses the sad truth of what the atheist is.  The atheist knows that God really exists.  When the atheist is asked, "You know God exists, why do you hate Him?", you might expect the answer saying, "It is because God is taking everything away from me.  I have to follow His cruel standards.  There is nothing wrong with me so He should just leave me alone."  Another example is with the pagan and one's paganism.  The same may to why people end up worshiping the work of their own hands.  Just observe how pagans have a god for almost every need they have which most of them are rooted upon selfish desires.  Pagan religion tends to be that you want something then you pray to the gods and goddesses for it.  It is really man-centered because it is not God-centered.  Ahab knew already that Baal was powerless against Jehovah yet he remained hardened in sin and continued to call Elijah his enemy.  It is because the righteousness of God is offensive to the sinful man.

What is ironic is that salvation from sin is never attained nor maintained by works yet the doctrine is unpopular.  The Gospel has always been meant to offend one's self-righteousness and one's sinful pride in several levels.  Galatians 3:24 calls the Law of God as the schoolmaster that brings us to faith in Christ.  Galatians 2:21 says that if righteousness were by one's own efforts then Christ died for nothing.  For people, they are basically good even when they are not.  This is a huge blow on man's thinking that if they are good enough then they will certainly make it.  The Gospel calls for real self-denial that only sees one's self deserving of Hell and that one is a sinner.  It is a real call for sinners to deny themselves, confess their iniquity as sinners and receive the free gift of salvation from sin.  It is a free gift that gives one new life in Christ Jesus.  But many refuse it because of their pride and love for sin because as long as they love sin and/or their self-righteousness, they will continue their rebellion against 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 …
