Like It or Not, Lies Usually Travel Faster than the Truth

If there's one thing that Christians need to know is that the lies usually travel faster than the truth as the great man of God, C.H. Spurgeon once said, "A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes."  How true is that indeed when you observe how often that when lies are spoken, they spread faster than the truth.

Proverbs 14:15 says, "The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going."  If man was not basically stupid and sinful then there would be no need for the Bible and the message of salvation.  If men were already born smart, wisdom would not be crying down the streets but the problem is that people are wise and righteous in their own eyes.  Worse, the more stupid people a person is the smarter that person thinks he or she is.  They may even be deluded into believing that the lies they make up are not lies.  You don't deny that sometimes the truth can be faster but more often than not, lies end up traveling half around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.  It really still reminds me of how today's people are always buying just everything they hear and Satan loves to take advantage of the truth.

It all starts with how the child is trained.  The child tends to believe everything their parent/s tell them like they like to them about Santa Claus or the Boogeyman they're bound to believe it.  One can always say that it's a childhood phase but in reality if children are not trained properly, they're most likely to go the wrong way (Proverbs 22:6).  That's why children must be biblically fed but the problem is most children don't grow up in Christian homes.  Many parents today ignore biblical values that either they're abusive parents, negligent parents or indulgent parents to name some ways that a child is not biblically raised.  No wonder many children today don't grow up well and they just believe everything they hear.  Even if they may no longer believe that Santa Claus or the Boogeyman exists but they're trained to believe just everything they hear.

The Internet today has become a force that's either used for good or for evil.  Just think that it in this digital age, lies can even spread faster whether it's by printed leaflets, books, mobile phone text messages, picture messages, social media, blogs and websites.  It's very easy to say, "I tell nothing but the truth." but to be saturated with lies at the same time.  As said, "Don't believe everything you read or hear from just anywhere, you better discern it."  Sadly, most people just choose the easy way out to just believe everything and say, "Well it's on the Internet, it must be true."  What's most frequently ignored is that the Internet is really a battlefield these days.  You have men of God publishing the truth while there are men of Satan who publish lies online to derail the truth.  Whenever it's a Christian ministry, men of God must always be ready to have all the mud and dirt to be slung at them, that they must expect that only a few people will ever believe the truth (Matthew 7:13-14).

False religion is so rampant because lies usually travel faster than the truth.  While the ministers of God are still wearing their shoes, the ministers of Satan have already traveled faster than they did.  Many people tend to think that as long as it travels fast then it's the truth.  Just think how many people would go to a godly assembly of Christians in contrast to false religion.  How many prosperity gospel quack preachers get more followers?  Just because where you are has more people than the other group doesn't mean that the group is following the truth.  It's not about how many people are in that group that makes it a truth or a lie.  It's all about whether or not it's the truth or not because truth never changes based on people who believe it.

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…

No Moral Absolutes Means No Human Rights

We have the truth that human rights activists are everywhere who reject the truth that there are moral absolutes. Many of them have their idea of "Judge not and you will not be judged." As for the atheistic human activists, they tend to carry out Richard Dawkins' quote from the River Out of Eden which says that there's no good, no evil but only pitiless indifference. They think that there are no such thing as moral absolutes. So if they believe that there are no moral absolutes then why are they fighting for human rights which requires moral absolutes to determine them? After all, Dawkins just said there is no purpose but only pitiless indifference.

Here's another problem with atheists' appeal to human rights. Why do they appeal to human rights when they claim that there are no moral absolutes and morality is relative? Human rights are determined by moral absolutes that God made. When God made His Ten Commandments and gave the whole Law - He made it as the st…

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…

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…

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…
