The Incredible Irony That Many People Want a Perfect Leader But Reject the Lord Jesus Christ!

People tend to wish for a perfect parent, a perfect child or right now people tend to wish for a perfect leader. It's only normal for people in a screwed up world to wish for a perfect leader to help solve all their problems. The irony is that many people who want the perfect leader reject the perfect leader namely the Lord Jesus Christ.

The situation is no different from the unbelieving Jews who expected the Messiah. Remember the Jews who were eager for the Messiah to arrive? They wanted the Messiah to supposedly liberate them from the Roman Rule and establish the Kingdom. For years, they wanted the Romans to be gotten rid of and the Kingdom of David established. The time came when Jesus was proclaimed by John the Baptist as the Lamb of God. People thought He would liberate them from Roman Rule. Instead, Jesus didn't feed on their hate but told them a lot of stuff that would crush their pride such as forgiving and loving one's enemies. Worse, He showed the people that they weren't good enough for Heaven. It's a complete attack on the pride of life! They sang praises on Palm Sunday but no sooner shouted "Crucify Him!" a few days later on what may be either Thursday or Friday. They wanted the perfect leader but they rejected Him and many of them still do.

The problem is that sinful men want the perfect leader but their definition of perfection is not even close to God's standards. It's safe to assume that their definition of a "perfect leader" is someone who would magically fix all their problems. In John 6:26 one can read that Jesus rebuked them that they wanted free lunch. The crowd went there not because of the miracles but because of the loaves. Jesus didn't come to the world as a man to magically fix people's worldly problems but to give them the Gospel of salvation. Jesus is indeed the perfect man because He's God in the form of man. But the worldly idea of perfect is nowhere near the Scriptural definition of perfect. Jesus lived the perfect life and the sinful world rejected Him and it will also reject His followers.

The idea of a "perfect leader" who would magically fix the world's problems may also be another reason why the Antichrist will be well-accepted when he finally arrives. People today want someone who will help fix all their problems. It's a common fact that politicians who make empty promises deceive the gullible. Likewise, the Antichrist and the False Prophet would deceive the gullible into following them. Their standards of perfection may be someone that the majority will love, someone that will please their desire for their own definition of peace and somebody who will make them feel good. Daniel 8:25 says that by "peace" the Antichrist will destroy many. This promise of peace is nothing more than deception. Man's twisted definition of peace and perfection will ultimately lead to the end of the world.

It's a good thing that there's a few who have might the right decision of getting one perfect leader in the Lord Jesus Christ. Stop looking for the perfect leader. Look to no other but Jesus who lived the perfect life as man so He could pay for the penalty of sins. He's the only one who can save you from your sins.

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 …
