Just Say No to Pulpit Pimps Because God Will Judge Such Evil Preachers

There's the ongoing accusation that born again Christians support those pastors who are pulpit pimps.  Biblically speaking, any pulpit pimp is a false prophet that has to be exposed and/or rebuked.  But many times, many of them don't even need to be exposed.  Many of them are already exposing themselves by their many ways to gain popularity.  Some of these methods include being a close friend or agent of the Vatican, preaching a watered down presentation of the Gospel, preaching a wrong kind of grace that permits a license to sin, feel good preaching, sensationalism with stuff such as unproven conspiracy theories and every worldly means that they can think of.  These pulpit pimps are never in to preach the truth but they are in to deceive people.  History has proven that false religion is one of the most lucrative dirty businesses if not the most lucrative dirty business ever.

It's indeed true that if pastors preach according to the Word of God then they're never going to get popular.  If anybody stands by the Word of God the should expect to be falsely accused.  If they go by the world system, they're going to be well-accepted.  One of the biggest signs a person isn't saved is that the world accepts him or her too much (John 15:18-19, James 4:4).  The world is in rebellion against God since the fall of man because of Adam's sin (Romans 5:12-14).  The heart of sinful man hasn't gotten any better as the world today just repeats many of the sins during the days of Noah, the days of Lot, the days of Elijah and the days of Jeremiah.  Matthew 7:13-14 shows that the road to life is narrow and that everything else leads to destruction.  It sounds stupid and bigoted to the world gone mad.  Many just choose to go where the crowd goes instead of going for what's right.  A good example is how Roman Catholics say they're right because they have huge numbers or because the Pope gets so much spotlight more than anyone in the world.  But numbers never change right or wrong because facts remain as facts regardless how many believe it.  The sky isn't blue during daytime because most people agree to it but because the sky is blue even if nobody agrees to it.

It can't be denied that pastors do need money to run a church, pay bills and to feed their families.  Although not all churches practice tithing or giving 10% (and the New Testament is pretty silent about it but it's not a sin to lovingly give 10% for pastoral work) but the problem is when pastors start using the prosperity gospel.  While it's true that giving for God's work means blessing (Luke 6:38) but it doesn't mean being exempted from trials.  When a pastor preaches about sin and repentance then there's going to be a lot of chaos.  The reason is because the majority prefer clowns who entertain goats over shepherds who tend to sheep.  What's worse is that many people today prefer to kick out the man of God warning them about the wolf ready to devour them.  It's their loss because somebody loved them enough to tell them the truth but they kicked the man of God out.  It's like refusing a surgical treatment that could have saved one's life but out of pride refused it.  That's how most people are really ever since the fall of man.

Many of these pulpit pimps may even think that their wealth and popularity proves that they're right with God.  Sorry, the Bible says in Luke 6:26 that it's not good to have the approval of the world.  In short, you can't have the approval of both the world and God.  The world gives fake approvals whenever a Christian does good but when they start preaching the Word of God as it is, the world's going to reject that person.  Many times, the prosperity of the wicked is their downfall.  Many people today have lots of money but they don't have Christ.  While being wealthy isn't wrong but when a person loves money then that's another issue (1 Timothy 6:10).  Besides, the Vatican gets so much support because it's really worldly while pretending to be spiritual.  There's no reason for the Pope to believe he's right with God just because he's living a huge basilica, because he's got the Pope Mobile, because almost everyone adores him because such are indeed the marks of a pulpit pimp.

Pastor Robert Kent Jesalva Evangelizing to Manny Pacquiao

Apparently Manny Pacquiao has already received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.  Here is a picture of Pastor Robert Kent Jesalva evangelizing Manny Pacquiao to the Lord.  Now pray that his was a real conversion and that his family will follow too.  Now looks like the Vatican has lost another faithful ally... pray that the Lord will lead Pacquiao's life to a different direction.  I just hope though our churches will continue the type of preaching that Pastor Ray Comfort carries out namely the use of the Law in preaching.

Let's just pray that if Pacquiao had a false conversion, it would be a real one as Paul Washer would repeatedly warn, "The only evidence of eternal security is continued fellowship."  True Christians will definitely continue to receive trials as life goes by to continue assuring them this that their conversion was real and to cure all doubts that they possess salvation and can't lose it.

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…

Politically Correct People Tend to Think That They Have the Right to Offend Others But Not to be Offended By Others

Politically correct people have this new problem where they tend to think they have the right to offend others while they have the right not to be offended by others. What examples can be pointed out with politically correct people's demands that they can offend others while having the right not to be offended? Here's a few examples that could be enumerated and observed daily with how hypocritical politically people can get:

Feminists get offensive with their so-called "women's rights" but when somebody criticizes them regardless of gender then they tend to go on a full outburst. They get mad when a man hits a woman but think it's okay for a woman to hit a man that is unless if it's the frustrated housewife who slaps her husband for constant infidelity.The LGBT Community of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders insist that people should accept their homosexuality as "normal", it's okay for them to post hate comments against Christianity …

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…

The Idea Homosexuality Harms No One is a Huge Lie From the Pits of Hell!

Homosexuals have their tendency to say that if I am not affected by what they do personally then I should just shut up and leave them alone.  They say that they are just a "normal loving couple" and that their activities are "perfectly safe".  They may be able to deceive the public with false statistics but God cannot be fooled.  I can be fooled, I can fall into doubt but my God is greater than all my weaknesses.  The picture above this paragraph shows some facts from Christian Apologetics Research Ministries on some documented research on how homosexuality harms those who practice it.
A lot of painful facts really need to be addressed when it comes to homosexual activities.  Every sin has its consequence that is why God hates sin.  God hates sin because of the harm it brings.  God is not trying to be a cosmic killjoy when He forbids homosexuality because He knows the consequences it will bring to those who practice it.  Instead, He is doing so in order to protect…

Difference Between A "Good Person" (By Worldly Standards) and a Righteous Person

Romans 5:7-8 says, "For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."  So where is the difference between a "good person" and a righteous person?  There is God's measuring stick vs. man's measuring stick.  Being a "good person" is when a person is compared to the others.  Let's say they compare "Mr. Nice Guy" with the likes of corrupt politicians.  To worldly standards he is a "good person" because he tries to do what is right (by his own flesh).  They are only good according to the worldly standards.  Many may be better than the other like for example, Mr. Nice Guy may treat everybody well.  However here's the real issue with God there is NO such thing as a good person as Romans 3:12 says, "There is NONE that doeth good, no not one." which goes together wit…
