The Simple Man with Knowledge of Scripture Is Better than the Pope or Any Council!

Reading through the history of the Papacy, one can see how often one Pope contradicts the other.  One Pope says differently and the next Pope says something differently.   The events of Roman Catholicism's change of doctrine disproves the heresy that the Pope has been guided by the Holy Spirit that he does not make any error when it comes to doctrine.  Current events involving Pope Francis' errors like saying Christians cannot be manufacturing weapons for self-defense, that having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is dangerous and now he says Jews may get saved without Jesus Christ.  Please, do not give me the excuse that the Pope can be in error for all he pleases when he is not seated on the papal throne because many errors were made by previous Popes and this Pope seated on the papal throne.

The Bible was banned from the public and anybody who was caught sharing the Scriptures with commoners was declared a heretic with many of them becoming martyrs for Christ.  Many great Bible scholars before the Reformation, during the Reformation and after the Reformation were crushed by the Inquisition.  Whether it was a picture of impaled heads on spikes, the Inquisition's inhuman methods of torture or being burned alive all because they translated the Bible for common man.  When William Tyndale translated the Bible, he had more authority than the Pope or the councils thus he had to be burned.  When Martin Luther triggered the first part of the Protestant Reformation, the Reformers had become a threat to the Pope's authority proving he was no successor of Peter but of Caiaphas.  When the Bible became more and more read by the common people, the more the authority of the Pope has the so-called "Vicar of Christ" got threatened because more and more people began to call him "Antichrist" because he is an Antichrist.

While I was still a Roman Catholic, I was just simply afraid to read the Bible for myself.  When I started having Bible studies, I soon protested saying, "Pastor, what about priests?" or "Pastor, why do we have to study the Bible?"  The more I studied the Bible, the more I found out why I was afraid to read it.  The great Martin Luther revealed the very nature of God's Law is a hammer that shatters the very self-righteous being of man, it is a mirror that reveals all our iniquity and imperfections, and it is the same whip that drives us to the cross.  Galatians 3:24 describes that the Law is our schoolmaster that brings us to Christ.  I could not imagine myself ever receiving Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior if it was not for the Law that first convicted me of my sinfulness.  It was the same Law that made me receive Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.  If I was not led to repentance of sin as imperfect as it was, I would have not gone to Jesus Christ to be saved from my sins and never in my sins.  It was that Bible that showed me the way outside of manmade tradition to Scriptural truth.

The same goes for any so-called Christian organization that relies on its council members than the Word of God.  The very testimony of former cultists who came from so-called Christian organizations also revealed how they got saved after they studied the Bible for themselves.  If one took the Bible into context, any of the cult's misuse and abuse of Scripture will be put to the light.  Any so-called prophecies they make about themselves with a verse taken out of context gets exposed to be a sham.  When people do not read and study the Bible for themselves, they are susceptible to being controlled and manipulated by any cult leader like the Pope or the executive ministers of any religion.  When they study the Bible for themselves in context, they become stronger than any Pope or council.  That is why it is very important to reach out the youth with the Word of God.

Ken Ham's Illustrations on Spiritual Warfare Against Humanism

Dr. Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis made these beautiful illustrations to show what's wrong with the church today. Let's take a look at the two illustrations on how Christians engage their spiritual warfare. 
The first illustration reveals the following:
One member is asleep when he should be doing something.Another person is firing at the balloons because the person who's supposed to fire it is asleep on the job.Somebody is focused on deflecting cannon balls than hitting the source of the cannon balls.Somebody is treating the whole situation like a game.  
By doing so, humanism is victorious whenever the local church is asleep. This is the problem to why Christians tend to fall down in battle at times:
Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
In short, if you're not going to stand in the gap on behalf of the land then who will? It's the…

The Ridiculous Roman Catholic View That Marriage Must Be Done Inside Their Church or It's Invalid

I remembered reading through the seven sacraments or ordinances of the Roman Catholic institution in a catechism. One of the teachings is that marriage must be treated as a sacrament. What it also implies is that if your marriage is done in a civil court that even if it was duly registered, that both couples were in a sexually pure union then it's not a marriage. So does that mean that a person can marry in a civil court, get divorced and marry his next spouse in the Roman Catholic institution?

Let's address the issue of civil marriage that is pure and holy. In short there was no incest, no adultery and it was between two people who are eligible for marriage. So why should the Roman Catholic institution even think that two people who got married with the sexually pure prerequisites in the eyes of God should be rejected. Is it because unless it's a priest who performs the marriage then the marriage can't be validated? It's a problem with how Roman Catholics have thei…

James 2 DOES NOT Teach Works Salvation

In a hasty attempt to defend works salvation, they would appeal to James 2.  It would be time to actually clear the fact that Paul and James DO NOT contradict each other. James 2 DOES NOT teach works salvation in which now can be clearly seen when this whole chapter is being dissected to show that James 2 does not defend the heretic crowd.  So let's try to check out what James 2 really is saying.
So first, it's time to think about these facts to debunk the heretical argument of using James 2:
1.) James 2:14-18 is not talking about works salvation but rather, again showing one's faith by one's works.  James 2:18 is a challenge to show one's faith.  Want to know about faith?  Hebrews 11 talks about the results of faith with some of the heroes of the Bible.  Try to coincide Hebrews 11 and James 2 and one sees the results of faith.  As said, when one says that a faith without works is DEAD because true faith produces good works to validate faith.  That's really th…

Don't Forget That the Roman Catholic Institution Has a Very Long History of Inciting Sedition

The Roman Catholic institution has its long fraudulent history of claiming to be the "One True Church that was founded n 33 A.D. - Holy, Catholic and Apostolic". The word catholic is a synonym for universal but the disciples were never first called Catholics in Antioch but Christians (Acts 11:26). Catholic was used as an old world for universal which some people today are allergic to that word because Catholic has been used to describe people who are members of the Roman Catholic institution. What can be talked about now is the fact that the Roman Catholic institution has had a long history of inciting sedition in governments. While they claim it to be doing the "work of God" or as the Jesuits say "Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam" or "For the greater glory of God." but is it really?

Doing some study of the history of the Vatican has it shown that the Inquisition and later the Jesuit Order have a lot of bloody rags to answer for. Did you know that many ki…

Does Salvation by Grace Through Faith in Jesus Christ Grant a License to Sin?

Here's a commonly heard argument saying, "Well salvation by faith alone in Jesus Christ is unjust and grants a license to sin." which is frequently done by most world religions.  They demand people must work for their salvation and for one, it's NOT even realistic or practical as it promotes the idea of a dictator God PLUS it's nothing more than asking for the impossible because God's standard of holiness is a LOT higher than all the good works man does.  Despite all the good man does, still they will fall into sin and the followers of almost every false religion this world has to offer shows that like how your average religious person attends religious services yet he/she falls into sin for the rest of the week, showing he/she is WEAK in the flesh.
Now it's time to really correct the whole erroneous argument as false.  Why?  The Bible says otherwise about what God's salvation by grace through faith really does- it transforms the individual to resist…

Testimony of Former Jesuit Priest Victor J. Affonso

To Follow Jesus Without Compromise by Victor J. Affonso
Why I joined the Society of Jesus
At the age of 23, I was a successful commercial artist on the verge of going abroad where a job was awaiting me. I was happy at the prospect of leaving India and thereby also escaping the terrible anguish caused of seeing the misery of the poor in the streets of Bombay.
Political saviors like Gandhi and Nehru had failed in giving true freedom and justice to India’s poor majority. Murder and divisions assailed “independent” India, and so it still is today. All the social works were but a few drops of water in a desert. Yet there was still one solution left: The words of Jesus kept coming to me during prayer, “…For with God ALL things are possible” (Mark 10:27). “Don’t run away!” On another day I heard the words, “Follow My Son — Jesus!” This word finally led me to leave the world and join the Society of Jesus, a missionary order that promised by its very title, its “Spiritual Exercises” and its C…

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…
