It's Rejecting Sola Scriptura That Creates Several Pseudo-Christian Groups

There's a Roman Catholic myth that Sola Scriptura has created 33,000 Protestant denominations. But really are there 33,000 Protestant denominations? Bro. Gerry Soliman of Solutions Finder Apologetics wrote an article on the 33,000 denomination myth. The whole idea is bogus according to a Roman Catholic source the National Catholic Register. But there's one truth that can be said that it's rejecting and not embracing Sola Scriptura that has caused a huge epidemic of a rise of pseudo-Christian groups. From Roman Catholicism to various pseudo-Christian groups here and there were a result of rejecting Sola Scriptura.

The claim by some Roman Catholic apologists that Sola Scriptura means condoning to certain evils is already implying that God is condoning to certain evils when He can't and won't go against His holy nature. Some of them have gone so far as to say that our modern conception of slavery was condoned by the Bible. Was the slavery in the Bible really slavery? Exodus 21:16 condemned the sin of human trafficking. To be a slave was to be a person in absolute service to one master. Deuteronomy 15:12-15 gives instructions that slaves should be treated properly. The other is on the issue of death penalty. They say death penalty is evil because the ten commandments (nine for them anyway for their basic catechism, the second was deleted and the tenth was split into two) said, "Thou shalt not kill." Never mind that the rest of the Bible also orders death penalty for murderers. But again, didn't the Roman Catholic institution launch several massacres against opposition?

How does rejecting Sola Scriptura inevitably result to the creation of several pseudo-Christian groups? The answer lies with some false prophet who declares himself as sent by God, takes certain passages out of context and claims to have a new revelation or to even restore the church from apostasy. The bigger problem is that people who are ignorant about the Scriptures just buy into it. If they read their Bible they would find that the prophet was false. To say the apostles didn't even carry a Bible is not an excuse. The apostles always carried the Scriptures and their writings with them. Besides, since when did God give the Roman Catholic institution or any pseudo-Christian group the right to decide which books were inspired and not inspired? 

Deuteronomy 18:22 gave this warning to the Israelites about false prophets saying, "When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him." God already gave them His Law to abide from Mt. Sinai as a guide on how to live. They were given His laws. They were told to never add anything unless God decided to add something. When the apostles wrote their letters they were very careful not to contradict with the Scriptures and they always quoted from Scriptures with the phrase "it is written". Unfortunately these false prophets are not careful at all not to disagree with Scriptures. They could care less if they're in agreement with God's Word.

The result is that when Sola Scriptura is rejected it gives false prophets their earthly authority to say that the Bible has mistakes and they came to "correct it". When they claim to have extra-Scriptural revelation they reject Sola Scriptura. They can go ahead and recite to their opponents Mark 7:8-9 for refusing them but they're chewing themselves whenever they recite it. To reject the Scriptures as the only place where you can find God's words is tantamount to rejecting God's words. When the Pope claims to have papal infallibility to keep him away from doctrinal error he's just chewing himself because he's not free from doctrinal error. When any "last messenger" appears claiming to correct the Bible, these clowns are just chewign themselves. The result is that they end up creating one pseudo-Christian group after the other because they don't put the Scripture above human authority.

While I don't deny that there are different Protestant denominations and Baptists are not historically Protestants but there's been more unity among true Christians who accept Sola Scriptura. Presbyterians may practice infant baptism but they embrace Baptists as family. Some Christians have Calvinist/Reformed view and some are non-Calvinists but they still embrace each other because they're truly saved. There may be some minor differences but one thing's certain that embracing Sola Scriptura only creates minor differences we can ignore. Rejecting it creates major differences to the point cults are established claiming to be Christian but they aren't.

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…
