Roman Catholic Misinterpretation of 2 Thessalonians 2:15

Roman Catholics try to justify their manmade tradition by appealing to 2 Thessalonians 2:15 which says in the King James version, "Therefore brethren stand fast and hold the traditions which ye have been taught whether by word or our epistle." which can be translated as this from the Good News Bible for Roman Catholics, "So then our brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold on to those truths which WE TAUGHT YOU both in our preaching and in our letter."  
The typical argument is that, "Hah, we got you.  The Bible supports tradition."  Yes, the Bible DOES support tradition BUT looking close at the verses, we realize that the Apostle Paul (who Roman Catholics adhere as a pillar of truth while they erroneously adhere to Peter as the first Pope, the Rock, the Head of the Church and the Pope as the successor of Peter) was talking about the traditions he gave should be either from the word of the Apostles or by their epistle which the Roman Catholic versions t…

Charles Haddon Spurgeon on Roman Catholicism

Here's a quote of Charles Haddon Spurgeon on Roman Catholicism: "We must have no truce, no treaty with Rome.  War!  War to the knife with her!  Peace there cannot be.  She cannot have peace with us - we cannot have peace with her.  She hates the true Church and we can only say that the hatred is reciprocated.  We would not lay a hand on upon her priests; we would not touch a hair of their heads.  Let them be free but their doctrine we would destroy from the face of the Earth as a doctrine of evils.  So let it perish O God and let that evil thing become as the fat of lambs.  Into smoke let it consume; yea into smoke let it consume away."
Thoughts:
While there are Baptist (by name) pastors who are really thinking they can be in bed with Rome.  Just made me think I spent some time admiring Billy Graham, Rick Warren and Martin Luther King Jr. to name a few (I won't keep mentioning them all, most of them expose themselves anyway) who are supposedly Baptist pastors but ar…

Some Contemporary Independent Fundamental Baptists are VERY Divided

I could remember how it's becoming a problem among some Baptists to be very divided.  In fact, it's sad to say they are becoming close minded in the bad way.  In fact Paul addressed the real issue in 1 Corinthians 1:13 concerning the divisions among the early born again Christians!  It's pretty much divided especially when I have encountered some problems among them.  What are these problems?  I'm not exactly saying some of them have become deacon-led Baptist churches, some of them remain faithful in being pastor-led but here are a few problems I have encountered:
1.) Independent Fundamental Baptists vs. Southern Baptists- I would definitely not agree that the whole Southern Baptist movement is fully apostate though it is currently suffering from apostasy, then again don't tell me that the Independent Fundamental Baptist movement isn't because in due fairness, false converts are entering both kinds of assembles meant only for the truly saved believers.  I real…

Severely Misrepresenting the Born Again Christian's Stand on Mary

It's very amazing indeed to how so often Roman Catholic faith defenders will keep misrepresenting born again Christians to hate Mary for these truths that is being upheld:
Mary did not remain a virgin (though some theologians in the past of sound doctrine sadly fell into that error though they may not be Mary worshipers).Mary was a sinner in need of salvation.  Mary was having other children by Joseph.That Mary is not the co-Mediatrix, co-Redemptor and that practices like the Rosary are in fact considered idolatrous.
Wow, amazing isn't it?  Just like those anti-Roman Catholic cults have misrepresented me to be working for the Vatican with zero proof chauvinists accuse me of being a homosexual with zero proof, I also have the Roman Catholic fanatics who are now accusing me of hating Mary.  All I can say is this accusation is overly shallow.  In fact, John 2:1-12 which Roman Catholics use to justify their devotion to Mary falls down flat for this reason- EVEN the Roman Catholic …

Only Time Will Tell for Pastor Mike Stahl

Looking at his condition, I really request faithful Christians to pray for his recovery.  But if God will not permit his recovery, he may soon be called home to be with the LORD.  I have been a fan of his writings and everything to do in furtherance of the Gospel.  But as said, either he recovers or God calls him home, I will rejoice since if he recovers, he will continue to win souls.  If he is called home, he will be forever free and be with the LORD forever.  Should he graduate from this world, will Heaven be your home?

Ray Comfort Discusses on "Do Catholics Worship Mary?

Here's a bit more of discussion of "On the Box" with Ray Comfort on "Do Catholics Worship Mary?" which is a very touchy issue.  I know a lot of people are going to get mad at me for this but they need to hear this message.  I have already tackled on it a lot.  I hope I can get this message spread fast as MANY people are already heading for Hell!  Roman Catholics may deny it but some former Catholics now Christians admit it!

Rock Music is ALWAYS Satanic

I decided to dig out one of my oldest research articles from the archives of the Baptist school I had graduated from.  I was called a bigot and everything, so what?  The truth needs to be spread and for one, people will laugh at Christians even if they're right because the world is focused only on what's pleasurable.  In fact, while there may be rock songs with a lot of "nice words " like "Heal the World" in their vain attempt to debunk any man of God from exposing any work of the Devil, however the reality can't be denied especially rock and roll really has its traces to perversion of God's music for the practices of the heathen.  Many people say I'm paranoid to talk against rock music.  While I won't be exposing rock stars one by one, this article will expose them as a group.  Rock music is always evil and whoever upholds it will be debunked by this article.  I am thankful to apparently Calvinistic preacher, Jack T. Chick for writing the …

The Dangers of Trustee-Led, Deacon-Led Baptist Assemblies!

Here's a big quote from Pastor Kent Jesalva writing about the dangers of Baptist churches that are deviating from pastor-led to deacon-ed and trustee led governance.  He writes this meaningful phrase, "All thsi time, Bible Baptist churches have been burdened with the contentious issue of governance.  There are Baptist churches today that seem to have lost sight or interpret God's command in Jeremiah 3:15 in a different way,  In this verse God says, 'and I will give you pastors according to mine own heart which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.'  This pastor is the man of God because God has declared that He will not be speaking with anybody EXCEPT His chosen shepherd."  Apparently other pastors like John Macarthur and Paul Washer are also very supportive of pastor led churches.  Problem is Charles Spurgeon's fear of clowns entertaining wolves are happening not only with pastors but also because of the deacon-led Baptist churches.  So whats…

The Virtuous Woman in Proverbs 31:10-31 with a Verse by Verse Commentary

I just thought it's VERY HARD to find a woman who fits Proverbs 31 these days.  Men need to pray for the right partner even if Boaz waited for long for Ruth.  Now it's time to do a verse by verse analysis of Proverbs 31:10-31:
Verse 10- "Who can find a virtuous woman?  For her price is far above rubies." How true, to think about it that many people today are "money comes first".  In truth, money is important but does not come first.  Women unless they are widowed, thrown out or whatever forces her to support herself is meant to stay at home and take care of the home.  Women who leave their children to the babysitter and to daycare centers while she tries to make "extra income" makes money useless as it may spoil the children.  Talk about like flight attendant mothers against the housewives do no make them good mothers.
Verse 11- "The heart of the husband doth safely trust in her so that he shall have no need of spoil." A trustworthy wif…

The Plague of Easy Believism Baptist, Presbyterian and Evangelical Assemblies?

I was listening to Paul Washer this week on "The Church is One" and somehow, he had raised a very important issue I believe should be raised.  Are we raising Antinomian Baptist parishes?  The answer for many can be a very loud yes.  I just thought of the satanic doctrine of "it's easy being a Christian" or "easy believism".  I had a thought that I was already looking at several Baptist websites, I am so amazed at how many of them are actually falling for an easy-easy doctrine.  Friends, being a Christian is not easy.  Reading John Macarthur's corrected edition of "Hard to Believe", in fact I would say that it is never being a Christian because it cost God His Son.  It's the life we live, not the words we speak that determine whether or not our faith is 100% authentic.  I don't expect sinless perfection but the life will matter.  To think about it, I am already facing some of these really touchy issues that need to be handled bec…

Kirk Cameron on Homosexuality

Independent film maker Kirk Cameron now addresses one of the greatest issues- homosexuality.  As the lefts and rights battle on their stand about allowing homosexual marriage, Kirk Cameron voices out something that needs to be heard even at the cost of his fame.  Well go ahead and get angry, the truth about homosexuality CANNOT be changed not even if everybody votes it's right!

The Strong Beer for Real Men? Beer is For Fools!

It really should be very disturbing to how liquor companies have been trying to appeal to the masculinity of men to drink their products. Just take a look at this commercial and see how sinful it is. This is just a sample of them and I had to choose the "tamest" one as an example. And why is liquor is prevalent? Simple the natural man is prone to getting drunk. Unsaved people tend to like to get drunk (1 Corinthians 6:9-11). So many people love getting drunk so much they would not repent of their sins and come to Jesus Christ for salvation. It's very necessary to protest against liquor by burning crates of them in church, read about verses against liquor and protest against all sorts of liquor.
Liquor is liquor... there is nothing decent about it nor manly either. Real men drink beer? Don't make me laugh because that's one of the real lies of the Devil. It's one of the many things that sissify a man all because these men drink beer trying to be real men only …

RH Bill Will Criminalize Christianity

I was thinking that when the Reproductive Herod Bill will be passed so what's going to happen? I just had my thought about it that the Reproductive Herod Bill will really be a danger to Biblical Christianity. Why is that? Thinking about it, I was thinking of the words of Estus Pirkle about sexual immorality. Also I had heard the interview of D. James Kennedy about the "Criminalization of Christianity". It's first happening in America, now it can happen in the Philippines too. Jane Folger's book "The Criminalization of Christianity" is a real must read as Filipino Christians are going to become the next target. Listening to the interview of Jane Folger with D. James Kennedy no matter how old it was as the latter has croaked to glory, there's a lot of meat in it.
The RH Bill is most likely to promote the following as "okay" and to speak against these sins is a hate crime:
1.) There will be a faster divorce procedure to everyone making it le…

Beware of Greedy Pastors!

Another topic I would really like to take note of are greedy pastors.  For one, how do they get rich so fast?  Here's been a few methods that REALLY work:
Promising the tithes and offerings to be keys to becoming billionaires rather than the key to spiritual blessing and being a blessing to others.  So what happens is first the people drop in their tithes and offerings insensibly then the pastor rather than use it for missions, pockets them, deposits them to his bank account and keeps it for himself rather than use it for missions in short this is a very evangelical form of Ponzi scheming.  Then what he does next can be VERY disturbing:The next thing you know the pastor rather than live in a simple house/apartment is NOW living in a beautiful mansion and his children are going to high class secular schools!Maybe the next thing is that instead of driving a car which is modeled for taxi service, he is now driving a limosine or he's having a private driver that's all dressed …

Sometimes It's Best NOT to Reprove Scorners

I just had a thought that we want to prove people just because we've grown up with them, we've been friends but sometimes we really need to stay back after we have reproved once or twice leaving them to the justice system to punish them.  Reason?  Proverbs 9:7-8 says, "He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getting himself a blot.  Reprove not a scorner lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man and he will love thee."
That is sometimes we have to learn to give up because stupid people do not become wise because of other people, they become wise when they choose to accept wisdom.  Having that kind of problem with scorners?  What we really need is to consider what were even our motives in correcting people- is it out of care or out of desire to overpower?  Sometimes we have the motive of care but it does become an excruciating exercise.  It can be true for parents with hard-headed children- sometimes they have to let their c…

Children Trying to "Grow Up" Fast?

It's an issue these days that in the education system, children are trying to grow up fast. It really disgusts me to think these pictures are happening because of parental bad examples and teaching that man is basically good. We've got irresponsible parenting (either being too strict or too lenient either way it is not good) to blame that's creating a generation of rebellious men and women who cannot conform to authority in society causing a lot of stony ground hearers to the Word of God. As said, what adults do, naive children will follow even when its wrong. Example makes the best establishment of authority. A drunk father who scolds his son for drinking alcohol has no authority whatsoever to say that because he's guilty of double standard! Just how are parents training their children that this is happening?
Below are some very disturbing scenes I wish parents will reflect if you wish these to happen to your children especially in the realm of secular education and …

Christians SHOULD NEVER Sell Their Inheritance EVEN to Their Pastor or the Government!

I was just thinking about it that Christians should NEVER sell their inheritance even to the pastor or any government official.  If they should NEVER by any means sell their inherited property like house and lot.  Take the example that Naboth said in 1 Kings 21:3, "The LORD forbid it me that I should give the inheritance of my fathers unto thee."  To be obvious, anybody even a pastor has no right to demand for the inheritance of the parishioner.  That is, even for monetary exchange, selling one's inheritance is an obvious gross violation of Leviticus 21:23-24- he land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land."  Clearly God forbade people to sell their inheritance when he said "The land shall NOT be sold for ever for the land is mine: for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.  That means no buying and selling of inheritance (except in dire need though it's more practical to lease it) much more allow anybody to steal it.
In fact, every …

The Real Reason WHY I Give Tithes and First Fruits

It's an utter heresy roaming around the Church that the tithes and the first fruits are guarantors that they will free the Christian from life's perils and make them billionaires- that is CROOKED theology.  Well didn't Malachi 3:10 say that God will rebuke the devourer?  Of course He did BUT it didn't mean immunity from the devourer, sometimes God will rebuke the devourer only after the damage is done and the Christian doesn't get the money back- take it from me!  I've been there, done that!
In my thoughts, the reason why I give my first fruits and tithes is because I love the LORD even if He will not make me a billionaire and though He may slay me, in Him will I trust.  Some people claim that the tithes aren't anymore valid in the New Testament, except they had become love offerings as tithing is not mentioned again.  However when a Christian gives 10% of what they own or in the first year, their very first weekly earning of the year as the first fruits i…

Pastors Should NOT Run for Politics!

The very idea that pastors should run for politics is pretty much abhorrent.  The principle of the separation of the functions of church are state are made too clear- "Render to God what is unto God and to Caesar what is unto Caesar."  So what's the big deal about pastors running for politics?  It's simple- it's a very big contradiction to his ministry that he should ever run for office.  It does get bothersome that some pastors are really running for office when in the first place their place is not for politics.  In my view, it should not even be considered a valid candidacy in the first place for any pastor to run for office in the first place, their candidacy filing should be as void as any non-registered voter in order to respect the boundaries of church and state.  As said, if pastors were allowed to run for politics not only does it interrupt his work to shepherd the flock but also it crosses the obvious yellow line that is set upon him one way or another…

The "Feel Good" Gospel Anyone?

I was thinking about the utter heretical statement of the feel good gospel, that is "Jesus loves you.  He wants you to get saved and to get rich." but really, that is so completely absurd and destructive to many young people today especially that that is a very incomplete message.  What is going on right now is that we are faced with false converts because the issue is people are not attacking sin, they are not raising up current issues, they are only asking for money with the guarantee that "Well, give and it will be given." ignoring the fact that is not how tithing and love offerings work!  God gives blessing from the giving so the giver gives more and helps others!  The problem is right now people are using Jesus as an "add on" that is really becoming a problem!  People are paying greedy pastors to fill their wallets because they wound rather endure the unsound doctrine.  2 Timothy 4:3 has been warning that men will not endure unsound doctrine but the…

The Aim for Christian Living: Neither Poverty Nor Riches!

The Bible says in Proverbs 30:8-9 clearly says, "Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches: feed me with food convenient for me: lest I be full and deny Thee and say, Who is the LORD?  Or lest I be poor and steal, and take the name of my God in vain."  In fact, people these days work solely to become rich rather when the Bible commands, Proverbs 23:4, "Labour not to be rich: cease from THINE OWN WISDOM."  The truth is, people can be so preoccupied with grades, career, wealth, money, etc. that they really don't realize everything just fades away.  Ecclesiastes 5:10 says, "He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver, nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity."  People just keep wanting more and more and the sad truth is money is controlling people instead of them controlling money!
In fact, I may be engaged in a few banking transactions like investments, losses in my life helped me realize…

When False Teachers Get The Pride Crushed as Their False Doctrines Get Debunked, Some of Them Erupt into Tantrums!

One of the greatest truths that I can really express to why I avoid debates with false teachers is aside form the fact I should be focusing on witnessing to unbelievers is also because when false teachers get debunked, they can get pretty violent to the point they can even be ready to inflict physical harm like how the Ang Dating Daan can go from heckling to even getting physically abrasive or the Iglesia ni Manalo could even murder somebody over a minor dispute.  I just thought about Independent Fundamental Baptist debates with the Catholic Faith Defenders, the Ang Dating Daan or the Irrational Response Squad to name a few they can get very violent.  
I could remember how when a false teacher got questioned of his claims that were mostly half-truths, he really showed how abrasive his personality was by lashing out false accusations one after the other to make himself look good.  After all, didn't the Pharisees get angry when Jesus preached about the sinful nature of man because …

Majority Votes DO NOT Change the Truth!

As elections are now hitting the Philippines this second Monday of May, I really am concerned at the fact that people should realize this- MAJORITY VOTES DO NOT CHANGE THE TRUTH!  So often do I hear this doctrine when various institutions have the logical fallacy of appealing to popularity like when they say, "The Roman Catholic institution is right because its followers have been so many for centuries." which is a fallacy.  For one, the are not focused on doctrine.  Also, the truth is never determined by election like people are sworn into office.  No, the truth is the truth as it is.  In fact, here are a few facts I'd like to bring up:
Even if in the past most people believed that the world is flat, the world has always been round.Many children may believe that Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny exist but no matter even if the whole world believes they exist, they will always be story book characters.Scientists in the past suffered some serious backlash and rebuke whenev…
