More Often Than Not, Roman Catholics Tend To Have Contradicting Views Against Born Again Christianity!

I remembered how after I got saved by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, I abandoned the Roman Catholic system because of its heresies and lies, teaching salvation is maintained by works rather than good works are a result of God's grace, that it's anathema to know you are truly saved and every other unbiblical garbage, I have then realized how Roman Catholics tend to have contradicting views against born again Christianity.

I have noticed how the mudslingers first can say, "Well those Protestants say they are saved by faith.  Wow, I can imagine their lifestyle that they sin all they want."  I have noticed how the Catholic Clips page (maybe it's ran by a person who attends church in a Jesuit parish due to the fact that the priest in the clips looks like a Jesuit priest) have more than once mocked the doctrine of faith alone.  It shows the Protestant Christian as a person who could care less about lifestyle.  I have noticed how many Catholic apologist sites and blogs tend to misrepresent the stand of born again Christians.  They tend to think that born again Christians (no I'm not talking about professing believers but true converts) just want to live their life the way they want it.

However they are more than willing to do a heel face turn when it comes to born again Christians with their conservative lifestyle and stand.  I noticed how in Catholic schools, people tend to be very liberated especially in the Jesuit schools because take note, the Jesuits are the first class, elite order of priests in the Roman Catholic system.  Most of the students in Jesuit schools come from very rich families.  I have noticed how a lot of people who attend church in a Jesuit ran parish are also very rude, crude and act like as if they have a license to sin like you can even see a married man go to Mass with his paramour, you can see adulterers and adulteresses not getting any discipline at all, it's all about sinning from Monday to Friday, confession on Saturday (there is NO real repentance in the confessional) then they get communion on Sunday - rinse and repeat.

Looking at this, I remember the words of Jesus Christ in Matthew 7:15-20 which says, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.  Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."  Although salvation is never by good works (and any attempt to gain salvation is a  dead work), but one's salvation results to good works.  Titus 2:11-14 says only God's grace can change a person from a life of sin to a life of service.  Whenever a person gets saved by God's grace, God will change the person for the better.  I know some Christians may have had a bad end like Lot, Samson, Solomon or Uzziah but all their good works in the past were proofs that they were indeed truly saved and that while they may suffer loss, their good works for Christ will still be rewarded and go to Heaven, but with less reward than others but you cannot deny, they still endured to the end even if in between, they had backslid horribly.

Works salvation itself is nothing more than hypocrisy and arrogance.  It seeks to take the glory for itself.  After all, let us compare the unsaved person and the saved person, the dead work and the good work.  A dead work is when a person tries to do anything good to please God, hoping all those acts of goodness (as far as civility and MANMADE tradition is concerned) will get him to Heaven.  On the other hand, a good work is when the saved person, out of gratitude and God's grace does only every good that one can for the glory of God and denies any part in doing acts of righteousness.  At the same time, works salvation is nothing more than a balancing scale where you do good works to outweigh your bad works while Christian holiness is all about the perfection of God, that even one sin is so offensive you need God's mercy which in turn, changes the life of the person for the better.

Continue the Reformation Through Expository Preaching

It's not merely enough to protest against Rome. There are many who protest against Rome who are just as heretical as Rome. What's not too surprising is to find some "Baptist" preachers who reject the badly needed art of expository preaching. Why do we need expository preaching? To know why we need it we must first define it.

Defining expository preaching

This is what the book "By the Book: The Whys and Hows of Biblical Preaching" would define expository preaching:
Expository preaching. When the main theme, its main points and further development of the points of the points or sub-points are all derived from the content, context and structural flow of a longer text in Scripture. This is popular when expounding paragraphs, stanzas, and chapters of a book and especially when doing a series of preaching from a book. (p. 45)
Here is the definition from Got Questions on "What is expository preaching?":
Expository preaching involves the exposition, or co…

Continuing the Reformation Also Means Preaching Against Quack Evangelical Pastors

It's so easy to heckle on Roman Catholic priests and similar cultists but hard to acknowledge that Evangelical circles aren't free of wolves in sheep's clothing. What I thought about is how often you may think that a certain pastor is a man of God but he's just as much as a wolf in sheep's clothing as the Roman Catholic priests. Just because a person claims to be a pastor doesn't mean he's a man of God.

Should it be mentioned Jeremiah has condemned irresponsible pastors or shepherds with how they carry their jobs? Read them at Jeremiah 10:21, 12:10, 22:2, 23:1-2 and you'll find out the kind of pastors God hates. Jeremiah 3:15 has God promising to give pastors who will give understanding. The problem is that there are so many pastors who aren't even men of God. They are pastors by profession but they are not pastors in God's eyes. This is a warning to Christians that just because a pastor by profession doesn't mean the person is a man of God.…

The Difference Between Faith Results to Good Works vs. Adding Faith to Good Works

There's a huge argument between the Papists and the Reformers about what authentic faith is. The stand isn't just merely between Papists and the Reformers as it goes as far as Papists, anti-Catholic cults and the true born again Christians (Protestant or not) on what James means by faith without works is dead.

Is James saying that in order to get saved or to stay saved that you must add faith to good works?

Perhaps one reason why Martin Luther once thought of the Book of James as an epistle of straw was because it felt like the author added good works to saving faith. I remembered having a dialogue with a third degree cousin of mine who was a Roman Catholic apologist. He knew I was a former Catholic turned Baptist. I had a conversation with him and he told me that I should examine the Book of James to see good works are required for justification.

The Roman Catholic view as well as the anti-Catholic cultist view tends to use James' writing to justify their heresy. Here'…

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…

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…

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…

Paul Washer's Quote to Slam the Prosperity Gospel

I really am so annoyed with all the prosperity gospel garbage because it is not biblical doctrine.  When I became a Christian, it is not about what it has done for me but what I have done for God.  If I am going to follow Christ, I can only expect to be ridiculed and persecuted.  If I am going to follow Christ then I expect the whole world to leave me behind.  Why do I expect that?  John 15:18-19 warns that the Christians are not of the world.  James 4:4 warns that you cannot be a friend of both the world and of God.

It is utterly foolish to say, "Receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and you will get healing and prosperity.  You will get a Mercedes Benz."  The more I read through the words of Jesus, the more I realize He did not promise any of those garbage that the prosperity crowd promises.  Instead, I read more warnings about persecution for His Name's sake.  Being a Christian can also mean being unpopular, hated, rejected, a laughingstock for the wrong reas…
