Do We Forget Satan Also Infiltrates Churches?

It is very easy to detect some of Satan's more obvious attacks.  While reading about the Roman Catholic use of the "Holy Office" or the "Spanish Inquisition", it was a very obvious head-on attack against born again Christianity.  It does not look like Rome wants to be their friend when the Inquisition gets busy in doing all forms of obviously bloody tortures to giving them painful deaths in the hopes of maintaining their power and grip towards people's lives.  It is obvious that when Muslim terrorists kill Christian missionaries that they are not even posing as false friends.  Any direct form of persecution is an obvious red alert that Satan really hates Christians.  But remember, Satan is only allowed to inflict harm on Christians with God's permission as mentioned in Job.

What one must note is that the war against Christianity is never always on the obvious.  Remember Jesus warned in Matthew 7:14-16 of wolves that come in sheep's clothing.  It is a figure of speech that describes the false prophets.  They do seem harmless but inside, they are just as dirty as every other lost sinner.  There have been many ways Satan infiltrates the church.  Paul warns in 2 Corinthians 11:26 and Galatians 2:4 that there is always the peril of false brethren.  2 Corinthians 11:14 warns that Satan can disguise himself as an angel of light.  There are many ways he can induce deception that it can deceive Christians for some time.  What is worse is that many of these people who teach false doctrines are so blinded to think that they are servants of God when they are ministers of Satan.

The great deception behind Evangelicals and Catholics Together is done in the name of tolerance.  When the late John Paul II opened the Mass of Pardon for all the atrocities done in the past, I remembered how many Roman Catholic folks of mine tell me that, "Look you bigot, Pope John Paul II did not even call us to kill you Protestants but it is time to consider you as our brothers and sisters in Christ."  Some even raise the late Martin Luther King Jr. and say, "He may have been named after the late Martin Luther but he certainly bridged the gap between Catholics and Protestants."  At first, my defenses were down but after reading more of the Roman Catholic institution's history and beliefs especially about salvation, I start to doubt the salvation of pastors who claim to be Christians but embrace Roman Catholics as brothers and sisters in Christ instead of heretics who need to be reached out with the Biblical truth.  Even the Jesuit agents are becoming bolder and bolder when they say, "Well Roman Catholics are our brothers and sisters in Christ!"

Another is that an institution may seem Christian because they preach salvation by faith alone and/or go against sinfulness.  It is a problem when a Christian may end up thinking that a certain church is a Bible-believing church because they believe in salvation by faith alone in Jesus Christ but surprise, they teach Antinomianism directly or indirectly.  I have no reason to believe any pastor is a pastor of God if he preaches eternal security but denies God's life changing grace plus teaching that salvation is a license to sin.  Only fake converts would dare embrace such a stupid heresy because those who are truly saved do not want to keep living in sin.  One can also preach against sinful activities so fiercely but adds works to staying saved.  They can also go as far as to teach that the Biblical truth of the perseverance of the saints is nothing more than a license to sin.  Both of them are also very misguided.

The best weapon against infiltration is by being firmly rooted on the Word of God.  It is time to really do verse by verse or expository preaching.  Enough of taking verses out of context.  It is time to do exegesis.  More importantly, one must always pray to God for discernment whether or not this person is a brethren or a false brethren that needs to be lovingly confronted with the Word of God.  It is not a struggle of flesh and blood but against the demons that control people.  Remember even these infiltrators are still given the chance to be saved and they are part of the mission field.

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…

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…

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…

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…
