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.

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…

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…

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…
