Just Because a Church's Got a Lot of Members Doesn't Mean It's Faithfully Serving God!

People tend to think that majority wins means when majority agrees then it must be right or it must be accepted. What's often ignored is this fact that while there are times that the majority can be right but the majority doesn't make it right. What's right and wrong has never been about numbers but about facts. Everyone can go ahead and deny the facts but that doesn't change the truth. The problem today is that people have the mentality that if the majority agrees with it then it must be right. You often hear people telling people, "Observe everyone and blend in with the crowd." While one must really fall in line when one must fall in line but even if more people don't want to fall in line, you must still fall in line when one must fall in line! That's quite different than believing that if the majority does it then it must be right!

Jesus had warned in Matthew 7:13-14 saying, "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." It sounds bigoted but the Bible said it. The whole ugly reality of life is that more people enter into the wide gate and that more people enter into destruction. Only a few people ever enter into the right way because most people love the wrong way. It's no wonder this world is in chaos now because most people choose the wrong path by following the majority instead of seeking for what's right. It's really no secret to why the world is in chaos. How many evil men continue to flourish because the world hypocritically continues to praise them for their wickedness while condemning Christians who have fallen even once to a lifetime of mockery? David was still remembered as that adulterous swine after his affair with Bathsheba yet wicked Ahab was still honored as a hero by the Northern Kingdom.

The Vatican boasts about having the biggest number of members. Many Roman Catholics go ahead and brag that they have billions of followers therefore they are the true church that Jesus founded on the Rock. Some of them may claim that the Pope succeeded Peter because of his popularity. But did Peter really get popular after his sermon in Acts 2? Peter went to jail many times even when he didn't even deserve it. The apostles never lived the glamorous lives of the priests in the Vatican or the prosperity popcorn preachers like Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar, Benny Hinn, Mike Murdock and Peter Popoff to name a few. Easy Baptist churches get more members than Baptist churches that are committed as Charles H. Spurgeon, John Gill and Jonathan Edwards. Jesus Himself was condemned by the majority and Barabbas was set freed by the majority who wanted a criminal. If Jesus was condemned by the majority then His followers can only expect to be condemned by the majority. If Jesus wasn't popular then His followers can only expect not to be popular. Christians may enjoy a few moments of fame for the good works they do are soon suffer persecution for preaching the truth.

While it can't be denied that some megachurches are indeed preaching the truth but compare their sizes of those megachurches that don't preach the truth. Some smaller churches may have ended up becoming megachurches in spite of the fact they don't do what the world does. What if you just had a group of sick and tired people who realized that the megachurches they're in were lying to them and they found the truth in the smaller churches? Megachurches that don't preach the truth beat those that do. But it doesn't change the fact that the truth remains the same regardless how many people believe it. Facts will always be facts and they can't be changed just because only a few or even none believe it. It's not bigotry to teach the facts as it is to a majority who just refuses to believe it.

Sorry Homosexuals, God Owns the Rainbow, Not You!

I found this absolutely funny picture and the maker got it right about homosexual activists getting mad at the rainbow light in the Noah's Park exhibit. Who could forget the time when homosexual marriage was made legal that those who are for it used the rainbow on their pictures on Facebook profiles or in other social networks. They claimed the rainbow as their color. I don't apologize for speaking the truth. The Bible is God's covenant with man and not homosexuality's banner of success. Genesis 9:14-17 - "And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: and I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. And God said …

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…

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…

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…

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…

What's Wrong with the Ang Dating Daan Movement?

The Ang Dating Daan movement is by the Members Church of God International spearheaded by its pastor (and so-called "prophet") Eliseo Soriano.  While claiming to be an expositor of the Scriptures with his "Itanong Mo Kay Soriano" or "Ask Soriano" In English, this religious group actually isn't Christian as some of the ignorant would want to believe.  Though the group claims the Bible is their only authority (as some cults do) but the problem is that they believe only Eli Soriano may interpret the Scriptures.  This is utter heresy!  Not even a great man in the Scriptures, Charles Spurgeon ever made such a preposterous claim!  This is no better than the "true church" movement by Darwin Fish which is exposed by Pastor Phil Johnson as a heretical movement.  In fact, I'm not going to waste my time debating with ADD members, they are a total waste of my time as every other debate.
Unlike John F. Macarthur of Grace to You that actually encoura…

Testimony of Former Iglesia Ni Cristo Member, Now a Born Again Christian

Editor's note: 
First and foremost, I would like to thank the Bereans for this wonderful story of a former Iglesia ni Cristo minister (or pastor), now he has become a Baptist Christian.  It's a sad story that some people have just jumped from one cult to another.  Some members of the Watchtower Society, Charismatic Movement or the Iglesia ni Cristo have left Roman Catholicism but they have never truly come to know the truth of salvation is by faith in Christ alone and that any good works after Christian life is but the grace of God at work in the believer.  Now for this brave testimony that I can really share after many years of searching for one testimony which I hope will further bring more INC members to Jesus Christ.

May I begin with a word of prayer that in the midst of all these trouble, I call upon Jesus Christ the Son of God who the Iglesia ni Cristo deny is indeed God, the only way to salvation, that they trust upon their works and church membership than Him alone.  I…
