Alcoholism is Slow Suicide

Proverbs 20:1 says, "Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise."

Sin is sin and it always be sin. Although the effects aren't always immediate but one doesn't realize that they may be committing suicide. The drunkard may not always suffer the effects of alcoholism immediately. But one thing is certain alcoholism is not good for your body. While alcohol kills germs outwardly but it also acts as poison to the human body. It's like how muriatic acid kills germs and helps disinfect the place but it won't benefit the human body.

The effects show from merely getting high to slow deterioration of one's system. It doesn't always work fast. It slowly sends poison to the blood stream that spreads throughout the whole body. The internal organs start to get poisoned by it. It doesn't only poison the blood but also the mind of the person. Getting drunk can impair one's mental judgment. Even people who have sto…

It's Hypocritical How Unsaved People Condemn Christians for Their Slightest Mistakes While Condoning the Sins of Their Own Over a Million Times!

2 Samuel 16:13 - And as David and his men went by the way, Shimei went along on the hill's side over against him, and cursed as he went, and threw stones at him, and cast dust.
Did you remember the whole time that David was a righteous man yet he fell down into sin with Bathsheba? It amazes me that how it is whenever a man of God falls down that the world is so easy to throw stones and cast dust at the person. David's adulterous affair with Bathsheba was indeed a mistake he'd live to regret for the rest of his life. While Christians are indeed no longer enslaved by sin but they still struggle with sin nonetheless. The problem is that the world is quick to nitpick on Christians but you can see how hypocritical they are with the world.
I've observed how a godly pastor falls down at his weakest and the world persecutes him to no end. But what about major cult leaders? It's amazing how the Vatican's sex scandals are so wide open yet the world still Roman Catholics …

Preach the Gospel Seriously and Expect to Be at War with the Whole World!

It's very easy to tell anyone, " You think the whole world is wrong and only you are right." What might be ignored is that sad to say most of the time the whole world is wrong and there are times only a few people are right. Didn't Jesus say in Matthew 7:13-14 that only a few enter the narrow way to life and many enter into the broad road of destruction? That's why nobody can say if you're perfect the world will love you. No, if you're perfect the world will hate you all the more. The worldly definition of perfect doesn't match up with God's definition of perfection.

Preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ means you'll have very few loyal supporters and a lot of enemies to pray for as they antagonize you. The whole sinful world is hostile to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The problem of the world is that it surrounds on the three areas of sin. 1 John 2:16 describes these three areas as the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of lif…

Atheists, It's Stupid to Ask "Where Was God" in Times of Disaster When You Kept Saying You Don't Need Him!

Reading the Book of Judges, one can see the stupidity of the Jewish people who kept turning to idols. It was their way of saying that they don't need God. When God allowed the oppressors to hit them, it's very easy to ask where was God when they needed Him. Gideon said in Judges 6:13 saying:
And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? And where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? But now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.
The issue is that most of the Jewish people forsook God for idols. After the death of Joshua, a new generation of Israelites who knew not God arose. Listen, just because one is born a Jew doesn't exempt one from salvation. God will damn every Jew and Gentile alike who rejects the Messiah. There's going to be no exemption for the Jews. The problem today is that we have a lot of people who really …

The Doctrine of Antinomianism Attempts to Turn Heaven into Hell!

The idea that a person can get saved and never get sanctified and regenerated is so blasphemous. No truly saved person can ever buy that even for a second. How can you be saved and stay the same? The answer is it's just impossible. The reason is because 1 Corinthians 6:11 says the wonderful truth of not just justification but also sanctification. Romans 3:31 says that faith doesn't make the Law void but rather it fulfills the Law. Ephesians 2:10 has every Christian ordained into good works. Titus 2:11-14 has it that God's grace teaches righteous living. How can that even hint for even one second that a person can get saved and remain the same?

The problem today is that Antinomians may pretend not to be Antinomians but their doctrine teaches otherwise. The backdoor approach of Antinomianism is that they may put a cover that they're supposedly against sin but they teach that a Christian may get saved and still remain to sin. Again, let me ask them where do they get that…

Atheists Just Love to Choose to Think the Bible's Just a Book of Fables!

Here's an artwork by Answers In Genesis where they make fun of a child for seeing the Ark Encounter by Ken Ham. People today want to believe that the Bible is a myth even when there's proof to back it up. What's so silly is that some people choose to believe in atheistic evolution even when the proofs they're provided aren't real or substantial. How can one single tooth or one single skull prove atheistic evolution?

So why do they want to believe the Bible is a book of fables? The Bible already gives its answers in Romans 18:21 which says:
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because…

Sad to Say Many People Know God Really Exists But They Choose to Remain Lost!

Romans 1:18-21 says, "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened."

What a sad and tragic thing. The problem isn't intellectual but moral. Why do people choose to reject God even when they know He exists? The problem is a love for sin and all three areas are the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. They can clearly see the evidence of creation in just everything from the single cell, to a single eye and throu…

Hating Islam While Loving Roman Catholicism Makes No Sense!

It's been 15 years since the fall of the World Trade Center. Let's focus on this problem where you have people who are loving Roman Catholicism while hating Islam. Some apostate ministers hate Islam while they call Roman Catholics as brothers and sisters in Christ. You have some Roman Catholics who hate Islam while they want to consider Evangelicals and Baptists as separated brethren. Now let's talk about why it's stupid to hate Islam while one loves Roman Catholicism.

The problem of loving Roman Catholicism while hating Islam is that both religions are sure ways to Hellfire. Both of them teach salvation by works (though done differently), they both have a bloody history of convert or die, they both carry a legalistic system, both have a history of abuse with women by their religious leaders, and they both have their fair share of persecuting Christians in the name of God. The differences are Roman Catholicism believes in some fundamental Christian truths like the Tri…

Roman Catholics Are Putting Too Much Importance on Mary

Roman Catholics are indeed a misguided people. While not all of them are Marian fanatics but there's one thing that can be certain - they're distracted by the Marian dogmas that are set upon them. The whole problem is that some converts to Roman Catholic may testify that they felt like orphans until they found their way to the "Blessed Mother".

To justify their practice of devotion to Mary, they misquote John 15:25-27:
John 15:25-27 - Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple standing by, whom He loved, He saith unto His mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home. (King James Version) John 19:25-27 - Standing close to Jesus' cross were His mother, His mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. Jesus saw His …

September Might as Well Be Called as Islamic Awareness Month!

Every September, it's very easy to remember the World Trade Center bombing. People can go ahead and say that it has nothing to do with Islam. Sad to say, it has something to do with Islam. If people say that it had nothing to do with Muhammad's methods think again. Islam teaches these verses:
"And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers, (Quran 2:191)"Those who believe do battle for the cause of Allah; and those who disbelieve do battle for the cause of idols. So fight the minions of the devil. Lo! the devil's strategy is ever weak," (Quran 4:76)"The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have…

Dear Christian, It's Foolish to Expect Yourself to Be Treated Better Than Jesus Christ

John 15:18-20 says, "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also."

If the world hates Jesus then it will hate His followers. If the Jesus you preach is the Jesus that the world loves then that's another Jesus (2 Corinthians 11:14). Jesus already warned that the world hated Him before it hated His followers. If you're going to stand by Jesus, expect the world not to love you. The world crucified Jesus for speaking nothing but the truth. They persecuted Jesus and they will persecute Him more along with those with Him.

Did you know that when Christians were persecuted wrongfully they were cha…

God Will Still Be Glorified in the Destruction of the Wicked!

There's always the problem of people who say that they'll never give God the glory. That's why they don't want to get saved because they want the glory. But do you know God will still get His glory at the end of all things? Here's what the Bible says:
Philippians 2:10-11 - That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Revelation 14:10 - The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
How is God glorified in the destruction of the wicked? It shows that He is God and He is sovereign. The wicked hate Him and wish He's not there. Even when it's not yet Judgment Day but one can see that God is glorified …
