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 part of the Church the Body of Christ. Many of them teach one heresy after the other. The bigger deception is that they seem like they're Christian institutions but aren't. It's easy to identify Roman Catholicism as the biggest pseudo-Christian denomination. Some cults like Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses and other pseudo-Christian cults are more vulgar about their heresies like some of them deny the deity of Christ. It's very easy to say no to a Roman Catholic priest or a Mormon missionary when you know about their heresies. But when it comes to pseudo-Evangelicals then that's when the deception kicks in. They may be a lot more subtle than the deception that the Vatican can do seeking to infiltrate the Evangelical churches!

The pseudo-Evangelicals churches can pretend to affirm to basic beliefs but they're not saved. It's very easy to affirm salvation by faith alone but they may be teaching a wrong kind of grace. While eternal security is indeed very Scriptural truth but these pseudo-Evangelicals can twist it. It's easy to think that if the person affirms salvation by grace through faith then that person is saved. But what we may not know immediately are their deadly heresies. Many of them turn out to be seeker friendly or closet Antinomians. If the person is indeed truly once saved always saved then such people can't live like the rest of the world. But these groups pervert once saved always saved from a doctrine that teaches that the believer will endure to the end to a doctrine that a person can get saved and still stay the same. That kind of teaching is not Scriptural. Nowhere in Scripture is it taught a person can get saved and still remain the same. Titus 2:11-14 teaches that God's grace defeats sinful living and teaches righteous living.

Followers of American "Christianity" may think that because they're popular then they're right. Did they even consider what Jesus said in Matthew 7:13-14? Jesus already warned that there are more people headed for Hell than for Heaven. But a lot of these followers of American "Christianity" think that they're right because of their numbers. Instead of holding a worship service to honor God's Word, some of them even end up having a rock concert. It's no less blasphemous than the Roman Catholic Mass that claims that the sacrifice of Jesus is repeated over and over again. God wants a worship service and not a concert. That's why entertainment driven churches need to be boycotted. That's why people must be wary about being loved by the world. James 4:4 says that the enemies of God are friends of the world.

Reformation Day is over but the Reformation still continues. The protest shouldn't be limited against the Vatican but against every heresy. Many churches today in America need a serious Reformation against the stupidity of American "Christianity". It may make a preacher unpopular but the Lord Jesus, the apostles and the prophets also suffered unpopularity. Popularity is fickle but what is done for God lasts forever.

Pastor Robert Kent Jesalva Evangelizing to Manny Pacquiao

Apparently Manny Pacquiao has already received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.  Here is a picture of Pastor Robert Kent Jesalva evangelizing Manny Pacquiao to the Lord.  Now pray that his was a real conversion and that his family will follow too.  Now looks like the Vatican has lost another faithful ally... pray that the Lord will lead Pacquiao's life to a different direction.  I just hope though our churches will continue the type of preaching that Pastor Ray Comfort carries out namely the use of the Law in preaching.

Let's just pray that if Pacquiao had a false conversion, it would be a real one as Paul Washer would repeatedly warn, "The only evidence of eternal security is continued fellowship."  True Christians will definitely continue to receive trials as life goes by to continue assuring them this that their conversion was real and to cure all doubts that they possess salvation and can't lose it.

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…

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…

Politically Correct People Tend to Think That They Have the Right to Offend Others But Not to be Offended By Others

Politically correct people have this new problem where they tend to think they have the right to offend others while they have the right not to be offended by others. What examples can be pointed out with politically correct people's demands that they can offend others while having the right not to be offended? Here's a few examples that could be enumerated and observed daily with how hypocritical politically people can get:

Feminists get offensive with their so-called "women's rights" but when somebody criticizes them regardless of gender then they tend to go on a full outburst. They get mad when a man hits a woman but think it's okay for a woman to hit a man that is unless if it's the frustrated housewife who slaps her husband for constant infidelity.The LGBT Community of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders insist that people should accept their homosexuality as "normal", it's okay for them to post hate comments against Christianity …

Testimony of Former Iglesia Ni Cristo Member, Now a Born Again Christian

Editor's note: 
First and foremost, I would like to thank the Bereans for this wonderful story of a former Iglesia ni Cristo minister (or pastor), now he has become a Baptist Christian.  It's a sad story that some people have just jumped from one cult to another.  Some members of the Watchtower Society, Charismatic Movement or the Iglesia ni Cristo have left Roman Catholicism but they have never truly come to know the truth of salvation is by faith in Christ alone and that any good works after Christian life is but the grace of God at work in the believer.  Now for this brave testimony that I can really share after many years of searching for one testimony which I hope will further bring more INC members to Jesus Christ.

May I begin with a word of prayer that in the midst of all these trouble, I call upon Jesus Christ the Son of God who the Iglesia ni Cristo deny is indeed God, the only way to salvation, that they trust upon their works and church membership than Him alone.  I…

Difference Between A "Good Person" (By Worldly Standards) and a Righteous Person

Romans 5:7-8 says, "For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."  So where is the difference between a "good person" and a righteous person?  There is God's measuring stick vs. man's measuring stick.  Being a "good person" is when a person is compared to the others.  Let's say they compare "Mr. Nice Guy" with the likes of corrupt politicians.  To worldly standards he is a "good person" because he tries to do what is right (by his own flesh).  They are only good according to the worldly standards.  Many may be better than the other like for example, Mr. Nice Guy may treat everybody well.  However here's the real issue with God there is NO such thing as a good person as Romans 3:12 says, "There is NONE that doeth good, no not one." which goes together wit…

The Idea Homosexuality Harms No One is a Huge Lie From the Pits of Hell!

Homosexuals have their tendency to say that if I am not affected by what they do personally then I should just shut up and leave them alone.  They say that they are just a "normal loving couple" and that their activities are "perfectly safe".  They may be able to deceive the public with false statistics but God cannot be fooled.  I can be fooled, I can fall into doubt but my God is greater than all my weaknesses.  The picture above this paragraph shows some facts from Christian Apologetics Research Ministries on some documented research on how homosexuality harms those who practice it.
A lot of painful facts really need to be addressed when it comes to homosexual activities.  Every sin has its consequence that is why God hates sin.  God hates sin because of the harm it brings.  God is not trying to be a cosmic killjoy when He forbids homosexuality because He knows the consequences it will bring to those who practice it.  Instead, He is doing so in order to protect…
