Reminder: True Faith in Christ Continues!

Any new believer may believe that they may lose their salvation by simply becoming an unbeliever. I used to have that fear that I may lose the faith or believe that people could voluntarily choose to become unbelievers. It wasn't long until I studied the Bible more and found out in Philippians 1:8-9 that Jesus will finish the work in the Christian. 1 John 2:19 says that those in Christ will never depart. If teaching that a believer can become an unbeliever or ex-believer is a heresy then there's also another distortion of eternal security.

This distortion of eternal security says that you can become an ex-Christian, believe once and you're still saved even if you show no real fruit of genuine conversion. That kind of teaching has also damned a lot of people. Many today supposedly said a prayer but they never had any real change in their lives. Some people got truly converted through a sinner's prayer evangelism in spite of it because they weren't given a watered d…

For the Love of Using the Strawman Argument!

The picture above this paragraph shows you what a strawman argument is. It's a common cowardly tactic used to play dirty, to make yourself look like you've supposedly won when in fact nothing has been refuted. It's a very common tactic to actually misrepresent the opponent (this is also known as poisoning the well) and claim you've actually refuted somebody's arguments when you haven't, This is the use of false accusations in order to win an easy victory. Most people today just don't want to listen to the truth so they'll do anything to discredit the messenger even if it means making a strawman.

What examples of strawmen are there used against the Christian apologist? It may be accompanied by Ad Hominem arguments (attacking the person instead of the argument) and poisoning the well with false accusations to properly set up their man of straw. Some apologists of false religion actually love to use this argument that they've actually "refuted&qu…

The Hypocrisy of the Complete Tolerance Movement

It's best to be Scripturally correct than to be politically "correct". Political "correctness" is not correct according to the Word of God. Too many people in authority today may not be exerting authority as they should be. Instead, you see them bending to the will of the people all in the name of tolerance and popularity. The problem didn't die away with the golden calf but it continued because of man's sin. The prophets of God were always attacked by the politically correct crowd. The prophets preached repentance and they all got killed. By postmodern standards the only thing politically correct people say is, "Those prophets deserved it! You must stick by the majority or you're just an idiot!" Sorry but Matthew 7;13-14 says that only a few are ever right and most people are wrong!

The complete tolerance movement is hypocritical in so many ways. They claim to be so tolerant but guess what? They aren't really as completely tolerant a…

Liberals Are in a Mess Between Christianity, Islam and Homosexuality!

All in the name of tolerance! What an ugly excuse to sponsor ecumenism! The liberal's dilemma can also be between Islam (which advocates for hatred against homosexuals) vs. Christianity (which advocates for loving homosexuals enough to tell them the truth about homosexuality). Homosexuality will always be a sin and the Bible condemns it in both the Old and the New Testaments. It's time to pose this challenge towards homosexuals concerning Christianity, Islam and homosexuality.

"Which is really a hate crime huh pro-homosexual advocates? Why would some of you defend the Muslim terrorist who obviously wants you people dead? Look... you already saw how those gay bars were attacked by Muslim terrorists and you still say that the Christians are the bigots. We Christians are doing the best we can to reach out to you. We gave you help during the attack and you say we still hate you. We have our right to refuse to bake your cake because what you're doing is wrong. Yet you cho…

The Problem With Chronological Errors

In the world of Christian apologetics, it's very easy to just absorb everything when you're a newbie. The Internet may not be the best place for research. It's good to have apologetics site like Way of the Master but to do real research one must go out there and dig into the details. One huge problem today is the prevalence of chronological errors.

What's a chronological error? It's when time and date do not agree with the claim. A good example of a chronological fallacy is to claim that the Jesuits came before Islam. The Jesuit Order could have not invented Islam because of the time difference. Islam was born in the early 7th century and the Jesuit Order came around in September 27, 1540. While it's possible that the Jesuits and Islam are now collaborating in the last days but the times and dates prove that the Jesuits couldn't have invented Islam. They could have collaborated with Islam but they couldn't have invented it. How can the Jesuits who came …

The Church Was NEVER Designed to Adjust to the Times!

Matthew 16:18 clearly states, "And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this Rock I will build My church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."

If there's one thing about the Christian church even if it's right now organizationally divided is that Christian truth can't be compromised. While the Baptist bride movement is definitely wrong but one thing is certain: the Church or God's people are one. The big problem that the Church faces today is the post-modern age. People today say that the Church must get with the times. Sorry to say but it's the times that need to get with the Church. No true Church would ever get with the times like how the Roman Catholic institution does it. The Roman Catholic institution claims to be the very Church and erroneously claims to be founded on Peter. However, all that sinister religion does is get with the times like how the ecumenical movement is moving today.

When Jesus said that the gates …

Friendly Reminder: Please Practice No Bible, No Breakfast Policy!

It's Thanksgiving Month and it's time to really get serious with Bible reading. How often do you read the Bible? Do you treat it as supplements, desserts or do you treat it as daily food? It's just so insulting to think how there are times Christians can neglect reading the Bible. It's no wonder some Christians are miserable because they can't enjoy sin. Here's what the Bible says about how to treat the Book of the Law or the Bible:
Joshua 1:8 - "This Book of the Law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success."
The Bible is hard to understand so that's why there are planned daily reading. But Christians should read the Bible cover to cover in their quest to grow. Study guides help, devotionals help but one must always seek to keep reading the Bible cover …

Please Listen to Pastor Tim's Message on How Christians Should Deal With the Illuminati

If there's one thing that any new Christian can get stuck with it's probably Illuminati or even Jesuit conspiracy theories. I don't dare deny that the Jesuits and the Illuminati control a lot of the world affairs behind the scenes. It's no secret that there are people who want to destroy Christians. Majority of the world wants to destroy Christians and I don't want to limit it to just the Illuminati, Jesuits, Freemasons and every other society. What can Christians do? Please listen to this video by Pastor Timothy Conway from I'll Be Honest. He'll talk about how such people are the mission field because they're lost and how Christians should not fear them.

Beware: Nobody Can Love Jesus While Hating the Scriptures!

It's really stupid to say, "I love Jesus." but you hate Bible studies. While there are many ways you can express your love for Jesus but practice Sola Scriptura as one's governing principle. I don't think it's just showing your love for God to do practices like praying to Mary or "saints'", praying the Rosary or any unscriptural religious practice. It's not just about serving God the way you want. You must serve God the way He wants it. God has a set of rules for you to follow so follow it! Some people wanted to serve God their way and paid for it in some way. Do you remember how Uzziah became a leper when he tried to offer incense when that was the task of the priest or how Uzzah died when he touched the Ark of the Covenant when he wasn't supposed to touch it?

It's stupid to say you have a love for Jesus so they attend one Mass or worship service after the other. But start inviting them for an expository Bible study and they'll…

Eight Logical Fallacies Commonly Used By Politically Correct People

It's important to know the logical fallacies involved in promoting the sin of political correctness. It's a weapon designed to silence people whose arguments CANNOT be refuted. So what are some of the fallacies used in political correctness? Here are eight commonly used weapons to promote the stupidity of being politically correct:

1.) Ad Hominem 

In the quest to silence Christians, it's a very common tactic to say that if a person is a Christian then you shouldn't listen to that person. More of then than not, Christians are labeled to be wrong simply because they are Christians. This would mean discrediting any facts and figures Christians may share with the public.

2.) Appeal to tradition

It's very common to appeal to tradition to justify sinful practices. Let's just say it becomes politically incorrect to tell Muslims that they're not saved because they have sprang out from several generations of Islam. This may also say that as long as it's done for …

No Wonder It'll Be Easy For the Antichrist to Be Loved By the World!

Revelation 13:4 says, "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?"

It's a stupid notion that the world have that if Christians were more like Jesus the world will love them. It's very easy to say that a person isn't Christlike when they're hurting others with the truth of the Scripture that they badly need to hear. Since when was not not Christlike to tell people that Jesus is the only Way to the Father, to warn them about sin and tell them about sin and judgment out of love and concern for the lost? That's the most Christlike behavior I've ever seen! But the world has a warped view of Jesus which makes them easy target for the coming Antichrist.

I guess this is why writer Arthur W. Pink wrote in "Another Gospel" these chilling words that make a lot of sense today:
The gospel of Satan is not a system of revolutionary pri…

The Problem of American "Christianity"

It's sad but true that why many churches in America have so little influence on the country is because of American "Christianity". Paul David Washer's sermons love to attack the common pest called the the modern American view of Christianity. It's very easy to say if you're an American then you're a Christian. That's so dead wrong because Christianity is never restricted to any nationality as everyone is welcome. Do you remember the time Esther and Mordecai were in Persia? Esther 8:17 says that many people in the land were converted to the true faith. John 3:16 says that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. Sad to say but it's now a common misconception that if you're an American then you're a Christian.

Is America really a nation of Christians? That's one of the biggest questions that can be answered with a no. Today, many of America's churches are really not Christian churches. They are churches but not par…

It's Already November 2 But the Reformation Still Continues

Romans 12:1-2 says, "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."

It's very easy to say that the Reformation is over and it died along with the Reformers like Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Knox and Huldrych Zwingli. Let me tell you this the Reformation isn't over. The Reformation isn't over as long as we've got Reformed preachers continuing the Reformation. If the Roman Catholics can say that the Reformation is over because the Counter-Reformation won think again. If they're continuing the Counter-Reformation then we've got Christians who are still continuing the Reformation.

True Reformation starts from within and not from without. Unless the degenerate heart is…

Roman Catholicism Hates the Doctrine of Assurance

The Roman Catholic institution teaches that for anyone to say that they have the knowledge that they can be saved are indeed anathema. Here's what the Canon Law of Rome says:
Canon 11. If anyone says that men are justified either by the sole imputation of the justice of Christ or by the sole remission of sins, excluding grace and charity which is poured into their hearts by the Holy Spirit and inheres in them, or also that the grace which justifies us is only the favour of God, let him be anathema.   Canon 12. If anyone says that justifying faith is nothing else than confidence in divine mercy, which remits sins for Christ's sake, or that it is this confidence alone that justifies us, let him be anathema.  Canon 24. If anyone says that the justice (righteousness) received is not preserved and also not increased before God through good works but that those works are merely the fruits and signs of justification obtained, but not the cause of the increase, let him be anathema.  …
