The Modern Gospel is One Gospel Which is Not Another

If salvation by works is leading people to Hell then so is an incomplete presentation of the Gospel. Many people today think that they're really once saved, always saved but do they even know that true salvation is to be saved from sin? The doctrine of eternal security has been twisted to look like a license to sin whenever you have people who say you can get saved and sin all you want. Let's take time to examine the dangerous modern gospel. This phenomenon of "Easy Christianity" is one of the many reasons why so many fake converts exist today. What's causing the phenomenon that many people think they're once saved always saved but they were never saved? It's all thanks to a group of fake preachers who preach a the modern gospel which is not another.

Many preachers today only care about numbers but never about whether or not these people are truly converted. While some people have had genuine conversions from a sinner's prayer evangelism it was because the pastor wasn't wishy washy. The pastor preached a real message against sin and people realized how sinful they were. Although there were no external tears, you can't expect a perfect repentance (because true repentance grows as a person is sanctified) but you can see that true conversion is happening. The same pastor who had led some to a sinner's prayer would confront the possibility that such a person isn't saved. But today many think that just by saying a prayer they are saved even when evidence suggests otherwise.

The modernistic "gospel" is dangerous with its no repentance. Acts 17:30 calls people to repent of their sins. The idea of a salvation without repentance is dangerous. Repentance is derved from the Greek "metanoneia" meaning to have a change in mind which results to a change in purpose. If there's no repentance of one's sins then there can't be any salvation. The reason is that a heart that's hardened in sin will refuse to savingly believe. You can't love God and love sin at the same time. If people aren't repentant of their sins how can they genuinely believe in the Savior from sin? Jesus' mission is to save people from their sins and not in their sins. Many people think that they're saved and that they can sin all they want. That's one dangerous blunder that has also sent people to Hell together with the self-righteous crowd. It's warned in Hebrews 12:14 that without holiness no man can see the LORD. This isn't a call to have holiness precede salvation but rather holiness characterizes someone who's eternally secure in Christ.

Others even go as far as to even present a Jesus without the death, burial and resurrection. Some have even gone as far that you can just believe in Jesus without the necessary gospel of the death, burial and resurrection. Worse, some of them even misquote Romans 10:9-13 to teach such a dangerous message. The Gospel message of the Bible is Jesus' death, burial and resurrection. The Bible teaches Jesus Christ is the Son of God. 1 John 5:13 teaches that those who overcame sin believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. If your Jesus is not Lord, if your Jesus is not God, if you believe in a Jesus that's not of the Bible then you're not saved to start with. There's no Christ without the cross (Galatians 6:12-14) and no salvation without the shedding of blood (Hebrews 9:22).

The idea of poking fun at Hell is one of the most dangerous things to happen. Rob Bell claims to be a Christian pastor but denies a literal Hell. Some modernist preachers even deny Hell. A lot of modernistic preachers even poke fun at Hell and only speak of nice things. To deny the reality of a burning Hell is dangerous. How can people know the truth about salvation and why they need it if they're not warned about Hell to start with? It would really be a huge reunion in Hell when all those misled people will forever accuse that quack pastor of only preaching nice things but never about Hell.

True Christian love doesn't condone to mistakes. It doesn't care if it offends people as long as it lovingly warns people to protect them from danger. The problem today is that the majority is usually laughing off God's warning until it's too late. Noah was only with his family and the whole world laughed. Lot was laughed at by the residents of Sodom concerning upcoming judgment. Matthew 7:13-14 warns that more people are wrong than right. God doesn't care about the majority's decision to rebel against Him. God's standard never changes regardless of what people think. Truth will always remain the truth even when only a few people believe it. No amount of majority votes will ever change the facts.

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…
