The Sinner Hates the Bible Because It Knows All About Their Sinfulness!

I remembered when I was newly exposed to Bible studies, I really hated reading the Bible while I was still a Roman Catholic.  My mentality was, "The Pope said it, I agree with it.  That does it." and, "Well those Protestants can go ahead and read the Bible, it's not important."  But the more I started reading the Bible for myself, the more I realized why I hated it and the more I found out why my folks would not encourage me to read it daily.  The truth of the matter why I used to hate reading the Bible can be summed up as, "The reason you don't like the Bible you old sinner is because it knows all about you!"  I couldn't help but cringe reading even a Roman Catholic translation of the Bible because the very truth of the Gospel was still there.  But after I found the truth, I could not help but love reading the Bible because I cannot be saved and not love His Word.

Martin Luther called the Law of God as a hammer that shatters our self-righteousness and a mirror that shows us our sin, it does not go with the worldview that man is basically good.  People tend to think nothing is wrong with them because they are religious even if the lifestyle shows a habitual pattern of sin.  Take a man who has several vices such as gambling, womanizing and alcoholism yet believes himself to be a good person because he does acts of charity, he is deeply religious and goes to a Roman Catholic worship service every Sunday.  Man's idea of salvation is doing more good than bad to merit Heaven compared to the perfect righteousness of God.  Luther took the great risk to translate the Bible into German so the people can read God's Word for themselves.  The Roman Catholic institution forbade Bible reading for a time because if people knew the truth they would leave the system.  Besides, the Bible also attacked the Roman Catholic idea of faith plus works or that salvation is all about doing everything they command rather than what Christ commands.  They believe salvation must be maintained by one's own good works instead of the Biblical view that good works is the effect, not the cause of salvation.  

Atheistic governments hate the Bible because it greatly speaks about sin.  The atheist view is that there is no God (but they repeatedly show their hatred for God), that man is basically good or that there are no such thing as moral absolutes.  Many atheist writers attack the God of the Bible as cruel and unjust while they hypocritically believe that there's no good, no evil and just plain pitiless indifference.  The more one reads the Bible, the more one understands why God had to wipe out sinful civilizations.  If sin is just a fantasy word then there is no ground to condemn God as unjust but He is just and fair.  The sinful lifestyles of Sodom and Gomorrah is so high that those diseased cities had to be destroyed.  The Canaanites were so wicked that God had to judge them that only those who threw themselves at His mercy and forgiveness (like Rahab did) were spared from that wrath.  When it comes to sin, atheists think it's just a fantasy word and they inwardly hate God because they want to live their lives their way.  It's no wonder why the song "I Did It My Way" is a very popular song while Christian hymns are so rejected.

The Bible describes the horrendous nature of sin in a way that the fallen man hates the idea that they are lost sinners.  The fallen man says, "I can save myself." but the Bible says, "You cannot save yourself."  The salvation many are so used to believing is, "If you do more good then you are okay." but that is not what the Bible says.  Romans 3:10-23 declare the sinfulness of man that all are guilty before God and that none is righteous because all have sinned.  James 2:10-11 declare that if you break even one Law then you are guilty of all and that you are short of God's glory.  Even if lusting after a woman is not legally adultery but it breaks the precepts concerning adultery.  If you hate someone, you are already a murderer by God's standard.  As Galatians 3:24 says that the Law is our schoolmaster that brings us to Christ.  Only by preaching through the Bible can the person really see the fact they need salvation and when a person is saved, they learn to love God's Law and they start saying, "Lord you saved me, now I am yours to command."

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…

Understanding Ignatius of Antioch's Statement on the Eucharist

It's already expected that Roman Catholicism takes Scriptures out of context and/or purposely misreads it. If they can't even handle the Word of God with reverence then I don't expect them to handle anything else with reverence except it be the writing of the past Popes and the Roman Catholic priests. One such man is the Christian bishop or overseer. In case Roman Catholics want to argue that the term "bishop" would prove he's one of their kind then they are mistaken. To be a bishop according to 1 Timothy 3:1-7 is to be a church leader. Besides, the same passage says that bishops must be family men of moral dignity which is impossible for a Roman Catholic priest who's bound to celibacy. Please note 1 Corinthians 7:35-37 is not a command for priests to stay single all their lives!
Now here's a popular misquote from the very passage of Ignatius of Antioch to justify the doctrine of transubstantiation: They abstain from the eucharist and from prayer, bec…

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…

God's Curse Upon Gambling!

One of the greatest hypocrisies that people are facing right now is the sin of legalized gambling. Why do I dare say it is hypocritical? It's because for one legalized gambling promotes all type of filth. We have laws against adultery but not against pornography, we have laws against stealing but not against gambling which is really a sin. Today, Christians must voice out not only against legalized prostitution and legalized pornography, they must also voice against legalized gambling. 1 Timothy 6:10 is true that in these days, the love for money is the root of all evil in the secular world plus gambling is mainly rooted upon the love for money. We ought to think that in every way, money is not evil but the love for it is really evil. Gambling in itself is fed because of the love of money. Pastor Mike Stahl a Baptist preacher had also revealed the ill effects of gambling, in truth it is a very lucrative business that sadly destroys lives. To be honest, gambling has been one of th…
