Just Because a Church's Got a Lot of Members Doesn't Mean It's Faithfully Serving God!

People tend to think that majority wins means when majority agrees then it must be right or it must be accepted. What's often ignored is this fact that while there are times that the majority can be right but the majority doesn't make it right. What's right and wrong has never been about numbers but about facts. Everyone can go ahead and deny the facts but that doesn't change the truth. The problem today is that people have the mentality that if the majority agrees with it then it must be right. You often hear people telling people, "Observe everyone and blend in with the crowd." While one must really fall in line when one must fall in line but even if more people don't want to fall in line, you must still fall in line when one must fall in line! That's quite different than believing that if the majority does it then it must be right!

Jesus had warned in Matthew 7:13-14 saying, "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." It sounds bigoted but the Bible said it. The whole ugly reality of life is that more people enter into the wide gate and that more people enter into destruction. Only a few people ever enter into the right way because most people love the wrong way. It's no wonder this world is in chaos now because most people choose the wrong path by following the majority instead of seeking for what's right. It's really no secret to why the world is in chaos. How many evil men continue to flourish because the world hypocritically continues to praise them for their wickedness while condemning Christians who have fallen even once to a lifetime of mockery? David was still remembered as that adulterous swine after his affair with Bathsheba yet wicked Ahab was still honored as a hero by the Northern Kingdom.

The Vatican boasts about having the biggest number of members. Many Roman Catholics go ahead and brag that they have billions of followers therefore they are the true church that Jesus founded on the Rock. Some of them may claim that the Pope succeeded Peter because of his popularity. But did Peter really get popular after his sermon in Acts 2? Peter went to jail many times even when he didn't even deserve it. The apostles never lived the glamorous lives of the priests in the Vatican or the prosperity popcorn preachers like Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar, Benny Hinn, Mike Murdock and Peter Popoff to name a few. Easy Baptist churches get more members than Baptist churches that are committed as Charles H. Spurgeon, John Gill and Jonathan Edwards. Jesus Himself was condemned by the majority and Barabbas was set freed by the majority who wanted a criminal. If Jesus was condemned by the majority then His followers can only expect to be condemned by the majority. If Jesus wasn't popular then His followers can only expect not to be popular. Christians may enjoy a few moments of fame for the good works they do are soon suffer persecution for preaching the truth.

While it can't be denied that some megachurches are indeed preaching the truth but compare their sizes of those megachurches that don't preach the truth. Some smaller churches may have ended up becoming megachurches in spite of the fact they don't do what the world does. What if you just had a group of sick and tired people who realized that the megachurches they're in were lying to them and they found the truth in the smaller churches? Megachurches that don't preach the truth beat those that do. But it doesn't change the fact that the truth remains the same regardless how many people believe it. Facts will always be facts and they can't be changed just because only a few or even none believe it. It's not bigotry to teach the facts as it is to a majority who just refuses to 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…
