Christmas Eve Meditation: There Was No Room in the Inn, No Crib For a Bed

Christmas is really the most materialistic time of the year, isn't it? That fact alone may have been one reason why the Puritans and other Christian preachers rejected Christmas. Arthur W. Pink renounced Christmas as a Papal superstition. Yet, Christmas may be the time of the year to actually make people see how materialistic they really are. All they think are the gifts and feasting never mind that the Lord Jesus left everything from above to become poor.
Luke 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn Son and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
While people think of how unfortunate they are, they never think that the Son of God had voluntarily given up His glory to be born among men. He wasn't born in a palace but in a stable. The Davidic Dynasty no longer ruled Israel. Israel was now under the rule of the bloody Herod the Great and the Roman Empire. Neither Joseph nor Mary who were descendants of David were…

Congratulations Dr. Robert Charles Sproul Sr.

It was reported that Dr. Robert Charles Sproul Sr. or R.C. Sproul Sr. for short had joined his Creator last December 14, 2017. Yup, it's time to say congratulations to him for fighting the good fight.

Here's some verses to give him my congratulations:
Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints. 2 Corinthians 5:6-8  Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 2 Timothy 4:6-8 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
It has been a long fight…

Sinful People Want to Lock Up People Who Lovingly Tell Them the Truth

It's no secret that we're in the last days. There are already laws that will be passed and that have been passed in favor of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community. One of these many provisions from these laws also say that anyone who preaches against homosexuality can be jailed for a hate crime. Is that surprising? Not really. The Bible is full of such people who were jailed for simply telling the truth.
The Apostle Paul wrote in Galatians 4:16 where he asks, "Am I therefore become thine enemy because I tell you the truth?" His life was anything but glamorous. He became a Christian and his life has been full of persecution. He couldn't avoid it. It's his life to live what the world may call the life of a loser. He wasn't living by the billions. He didn't have a huge mansion. He was always attacked for preaching the truth.
The situation is no different. Do you remember some incidents in the Bible where people got locked up for telli…

It's Sickening How Parents Love to Lie About Santa Claus While Wondering Why Their Children Lie to Them

It's really sickening how parents these days will always try to justify the Santa Claus lie isn't it? If you think about it, it's very common to lie during Christmas. What's even worse is that you have parents who lie about Santa Claus and say, "If you lie to me, I'll tell Santa Claus you lied to me and you're not getting any gifts!" Then come Christmas morning and the child discovers that Santa Claus isn't real.

The problem of lying about Santa Claus while teaching your child not to lie is basically follow what I say but not what I do type of parenting. It's a bad case of double standard. Let's see what the Bible says about the problem of double standard:
Matthew 23:3 - All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that obseve and do, but do not ye after their works; for they say and do not. Romans 2:21-22 - Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? Thou that preachest a man should not steal dost thou steal? Thou …

Spare the Rod, Spoil the Child So Don't Get Surprised Why the Child Doesn't Grow Up Right

Try listening to this video and you may notice a couple of stuff that really show what's wrong with the typical family today. Take a look at what the parents are saying and you may find out why their son is turning out to be a horrible brat. They said that they've never spanked him as a child. He's had his way all his life. Doesn't that tell you that their rebellious son was spoiled all his life? He's not even ready to hear the word no. By not giving him the badly needed dose of Vitamin No when he was a child then the parents are reaping what they sow.

The problem is calling the father an "excellent" father. How can he be an excellent father when he spared the rod? You say you don't punish your child because you love your child. The Bible says in Proverbs 13:14 that true love requires discipline. You can always have discipline without love but never love without discipline. The father in this video admits that his son is not ready to hear the word no.…

Was Mary the Earthly Mother of Jesus Born Without Sin?

It would be best to discuss about since today is the Roman Catholic feast of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Roman Catholics insist that Mary was supposedly born without sin and the argument goes that if Mary were a sinner then why was Jesus sinless. That is a good question to ask and it would be good to provide some answers based on the Bible.

Luke 1:28 is frequently used to defend the stand on the doctrine of Mary's immaculate conception. The verse has the angel calling out to Mary with the words, "Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the LORD is with thee: blessed art thou among women." But there is a problem with that one. Grace is not given to those who do not need it but towards sinners. There is a failure to take things and read things in context. If Mary was ever conceived without sin then notice verse 29 has her trembling at the angel Gabriel's message. Mary already knew she was a sinner as evidenced in verse 47 with her conversation with Elizabeth.…

The Foolishness of Waiting for Christ's Return Without Preaching the Gospel to the Lost

It's no secret that the world is in terrible times and chances are they're not going to get better. The world is now a huge insane den of iniquity. Signs of the times have shown up such as the rampant immorality growing left and right.
2 Timothy 3:1-7 - This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2 Peter 3:3-4 - Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffer…

Using Santa Claus to Remind People to Keep Christ in Christmas is Pure Hypocrisy

This has got to be one of the biggest hypocrisies I've ever seen. Okay, it's already past December 6, 2017 (which is the traditional feast day of St. Nicholas for Roman Catholics) but I still can't help but get mad at this video. EWTN or Eternal Word Television Network even dares to use Santa Claus to remind us to keep Christ in Christmas. That idea is baloney since parents continue to lie to their children about Santa Claus giving them what they want during Christmas... only if they were good the whole year round. 
Here's Pastor Todd Friel of Wretched as he discusses about what's wrong with Santa Claus. I really listened to this video and I realize why I get mad whenever parents lie about Santa Claus. I was lied to about Santa Claus when I was still a child and I wonder what else have adults lied to me about. No, there's no Santa Claus. It should sicken me how Santa Claus is more popular to the world than Jesus Christ. When John Lennon said they became more p…

Santa Claus Parenting is NOT a Substitute For the Fear of the LORD Parenting

Christmas is just around the corner and I pray to God that this article will continue to offend those politically correct parents who think lying about Santa Claus is just harmless fun. How does the Bible tell us to parent our children? Proverbs 22:6 says, "Train up the child the way he should go, when he is old, he will not depart from it." So where does Santa Claus parenting fit in that one? There's no place for Santa Claus parenting for this reason. Santa Claus is only meant to believed when you are a child but the Lord Jesus is meant to be believed from childhood to the grave.

So what's the difference between Santa Claus parenting and the fear of the LORD parenting? The difference isn't only with the truth that Santa Claus isn't real and Jesus Christ is real. The reason of parents lying about Santa Claus and parents who tell the truth about Jesus Christ is very different. One only wants their children to do good while the other talks about the natural sin…

Roman Catholics Contradict Themselves Further If Transubstantiation Were Real

It would be very self-contradictory for Roman Catholics to say that born again Christians play down the Lord's supper, they claim that participation in the sacraments is part of maintaining salvation. But it would be time to think about how Roman Catholics are already condemning themselves when they claim that transubstantiation is real. The doctrine says that even if the bread and wine still taste like bread and wine, still look like it but the substance has become the literal body and blood of Jesus.

The Roman Catholics insist that you must participate in the sacraments to attain eternal life. But there's the problem behind their argument. If you participate in the Roman Catholic Sunday Mass then you can see the cup has been forbidden from the laity. They misquote 1 Corinthians 11:27 to say that they don't need to partake of the wine because it says "or". But if you put it into context, you can read these instructions in 1 Corinthians 11:23-27 which says you ea…

Why Christian Schools Shouldn't Be Afraid of Being Compared to the Military

It's a common complain that Christian education is being called as a military form of education. It's even more shameful that some "Christian" education even end up with some form of Antinomianism where children should be allowed to run around and shout. Dedicated Baptist and Evangelical schools are also criticized by some Roman Catholic schools as being too much like a military. But the Bible says that the Christian life is that of a soldier. Sorry, I didn't say it. The Word of God said it.
2 Timothy 2:3-4 - Thou therefore endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 
Did you read that? The Christian life is called to be a soldier of Jesus Christ. One must endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. Christian education isn't meant to fit in with the world. Rather, it should teach its soldiers how to overcome the world…

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 …

Diehard Roman Catholics Need to Understand That God Ordained the Death Penalty to Heal the Land

It's hypocritical how often the Roman Catholic institution has been having activities related to calling for "Stop the killing, start the healing." all the while she's drunk with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus Christ. What innocent blood am I talking about? I would like to talk about the Christians whom they have murdered in God's name while claiming to be the true Church that was founded by Jesus Christ when she isn't. How often is the Inquisition so despicably covered up that that the average Roman Catholic today knows almost nothing about their bloody history? They are only misled by revised history books and they tell others to study their own version of historical textbooks.

Do you know the Bible actually requires some killing before the land can be healed? Although it's not always required but here's the words of God Himself. Please don't even start saying, "Sola Scriptura condones to certain evils." because God Himself spoke th…

What Does the Phrase "Holy, Catholic Church" Mean?

The Reformation is not yet over regardless of denomination. Baptists may be historically not Protestants but there were already groups that opposed the Vatican before it. The true Church is now in its hottest battles in the Laodicean age.

It's time to clarify another statement that was misused quotes by Ignatius of Antioch:
Wherever the bishop appears, there let the people be; as wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church. It is not lawful to baptize or give communion without the consent of the bishop. On the other hand, whatever has his approval is pleasing to God. Thus, whatever is done will be safe and valid.
Roman Catholics have misused this quote to justify that they are the "true Church" that was supposedly founded last 33 A.D. but is it? Let us examine what the word catholic means. Catholic means universal. Also, to claim that Ignatius of Antioch was a Roman Catholic priest rather than a Christian bishop is pure nonsense. The word bishop means overseer…

Continue the Reformation By Not Replacing Daily Righteousness With Mountaintop Experiences

There are two major anniversaries that may make a Christian feel that the Rapture is closer. One is the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible. Most recently, we have the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. The Protestant Reformation came to be as another monument of Christianity's history in the expansion of the Church. There were pre-Reformation Christians who already opposed the Roman Catholic institution then we have the Protestant Christians. The 500th anniversary might as well be considered a mountaintop experience for many Christians who honor the Reformation.

But there's one question: are we getting too focused on the mountaintop experience. Matthew 17:1–8, Mark 9:2–8 and Luke 9:28–36 talk about the mountaintop experience of the disciples. Jesus was transfigured and along him were both Moses and Elijah. Peter asks Jesus if he should make three tabernacles. One tabernacle was for Jesus, the other for Moses and the other for Elijah. However the other two prophets we…
