The Hypocrisy of Some Roman Catholics Who Compare Born Again Christianity With Islam

It's absurd that some Catholic Faith Defenders have gone as far as to compare Islam with born again Christianity. Some Roman Catholic sites have gone as far as to call Islam as a form of Protestantism. That alone is pretty much absurd. 

To claim Islam is a form of Protestantism shoots itself at the foot. To say that Islam is a form of Protestantism is a chronological error. This should be a problem. Martin Luther could have not met Muhammad considering the incredible time jump between them. Muhammad came centuries before Luther. If Luther founder Protestantism then how can Islam be a a Protestant denomination? 

What these people are ignoring is the huge difference between born again Christianity and Islam. Showing the differences would show how comparing the doctrine on both sides to actually show the stupidity of the argument. Here are the big differences and where hypocrisies are exposed because these can't be reconciled to each other:
  • Born again Christians believe in the Trinity and they believe Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. Muslims reject that teaching saying Jesus is just a man and a prophet. 
  • Born again Christians respect the Bible as their final authority in matters of faith and tradition. Muslims condemn the Bible as something that has been corrupt and should not be read. Both the Bible and the Koran are not even the same. This also sets Christians apart from so-called "Protestant" groups which claim that they are there to restore the true Church after centuries of apostasy but teach many weird doctrines not found in the Bible. If you stick by Sola Scriptura then you stick to what the Bible says and church authorities govern by what the Bible says.
  • Born again Christians believe in loving one's enemies and spreading the faith in love. Islam teaches that you must seek out your enemies relentlessly forcing them to convert or die. Should I mention that the Roman Catholic's use of the Crusades and the Inquisition was anything but loving their enemies? Many of the Vatican's atrocities involve forcing people to convert to Roman Catholicism. Many Protestant Christians and non-Protestant Christians were all martyred for simply opposing the lies of the Vatican.
  • Born again Christians believe in salvation by grace through faith and that good works come after salvation, not before. Islam is a works-oriented religion. Both Islam and Roman Catholicism require people to do good works rather than teach that a changed life is a result of salvation.

Should we mention that while Roman Catholicism and Islam have different believes like Roman Catholics believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and in the Trinity (and Islam doesn't) but both have some things in common:
  • Both religions have a history of using force to spread their religion. It's always been a religion of convert or die. The Roman Catholic institution has its history of the Crusades and the Inquisition which forced people to convert or die. Islam has its Islamic conquests which forced its captives to convert to Islam or die.
  • Both religions have a long history of acquiring ill-gotten wealth either through direct force, extortion or through subtle means. The conquests done by both religion was a struggle of wealth and not just religion. The Crusades' battle with Islam was not a quest to liberate Jerusalem but a battle of who gets to take over and extort the people. Also, both religions tend to favor generous donations from rotten crooks as long as it keeps them going. Should I mention that a lot of crooked pastors who extort money are also allied with the Vatican? 
  • Both religions have a lot of sex scandals involving their religious leaders. We have Roman Catholic priests who are involved in fornication, adultery and pedophilia yet the continue to serve masses. You have imams with who have one wife and several mistresses who they register as wives (polygamy) who also have a history of pedophilia.
  • Both religions have born again Christians as their common enemies. Read the history both religions. The Dark Ages involved a lot of atrocities to born again Christians done by both Roman Catholic and Islamic theocracies. They have both established countries where state religion was encouraged. Not being a Roman Catholic in a Roman Catholic theocracy is a crime. Not being a Muslim in a Muslim theocracy is a crime.

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…
