Worldly People Think Becoming a Born Again Christian is an "Unpardonable Sin"

It's typical for the world to keep forgiving the thousand or million or billion trespasses but hate the Christian. I'm reminded of how Saul himself was a bloodthirsty murderer but he was so well-accepted. But when Saul became Paul everything turned upside down. Reading Paul's Christian life proved that becoming a Christian means to get right with God but to get wrong with the world. Friendship with the world is enmity with God. Friendship with God is enmity with the world.

Remember these words by Jesus Himself:
John 15:18-19 
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.

Becoming a Christian means you're at odds with the world. I remembered reading "Hard to Believe" by John F. MacArthur and he mentions that you can't be faithful with God and popular with the world at the same time so take your pick. The problem is that many people today are just like the rich young ruler. Many people refuse to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior because of their love for the world. How many people today put money first over Jesus? A lot. How many people today put Jesus in front of their finances? So very few.

Becoming a Christian means to be at odds with the world since the fall of man. Remember that Cain killed Abel because one was unrighteous and the other was righteous. Remember that Noah spent 120 years straight of being ridiculed by the world for building the ark. The prophets were in no better condition either. False prophets are popular but prophets of God get stoned and killed. Just reading Jeremiah's life makes me upset because it reminds me that the situation today is just getting worse. Jesus was soon rejected by the majority of the world and has still been rejected. He allowed Himself to be rejected so the mission of the Father can be fulfilled but what do people do? They still continue to reject Jesus to save them and change their lives.

It's no surprise how the term "born again Christian" has also been distorted by some Roman Catholics as well as other enemies of true Christianity. They have called born again Christians with whatever names that they can think of like "burn again" or BACterians. They will give whatever accusations they could such as teaching a license to sin or giving a lot of false accusations. I've experienced a lot of false accusations that I've been accused of when when it isn't true. It's frustrating but I must endure it and rejoice over it.

Here's the comforting truth that Jesus also assured for those who are persecuted for the wrong reasons:
Matthew 5:11-12 
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Like it or not, it's blessing through sufferings. God allows persecutions as part of the cleansing process. There's no sanctification without wrongful persecution. There's no cleaning out the dross without extreme heat. Gold can't be pure gold without the purification process. Likewise, God uses persecution not only to weed out false converts but to also prune the branches. Christians aren't sinless and God uses persecution to punish them to confess any unconfessed sin to Him. He wouldn't want His children to be laying in ease because it's bad for their spiritual well-being.

This is all what the Christian has to say about their life:
2 Corinthians 4:8-10 
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

It's very tempting to take revenge on such people but here's what the Bible says Christians should do as instructed by the Apostle Paul:
Romans 12:19-20 
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is Mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.

One thing's certain: we've got payday someday. To think that the Lord should avenge every single injury is but petty idiocy. Just think of these words by Arthur W. Pink on God's Long Suffering for sinners:
God's Long Suffering 
How wondrous is God's patience with the world today.  On every side people are sinning with a high hand. The Divine law is trampled under foot and God Himself openly despised. It is truly amazing that He does not instantly strike dead those who so brazenly defy Him. 
Why does He not suddenly cut off the haughty infidel and blatant blasphemer, as He did Ananias and Sapphira? (Acts 5:1-10).

Why does He not cause the earth to open its mouth and devour the persecutors of His people, so that, like Dathan and Abiram, they shall go down alive into the Pit? (Numbers 16:1-35). 
And what of apostate Christendom, where every possible form of sin is now tolerated and practiced under cover of the Holy Name of Christ? 
Why does not the righteous wrath of Heaven make an end of such abominations? Only one answer is possible: because God bears with "much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction." (Romans 9:22). 
God bears long with the wicked notwithstanding the multitude of their sins, and shall we desire to be revenged because of a single injury?

God has every right to extend His patience on the wicked. He was patient with the Christians before they got saved so why should they think that they should be avenged immediately? Even if worldly people think that becoming a born again Christian is a sin but there's still the call to love them, pray for them, bless them when they curse and to do good to them when they do evil.

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…

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…

Understanding Ignatius of Antioch's Statement on the Eucharist

It's already expected that Roman Catholicism takes Scriptures out of context and/or purposely misreads it. If they can't even handle the Word of God with reverence then I don't expect them to handle anything else with reverence except it be the writing of the past Popes and the Roman Catholic priests. One such man is the Christian bishop or overseer. In case Roman Catholics want to argue that the term "bishop" would prove he's one of their kind then they are mistaken. To be a bishop according to 1 Timothy 3:1-7 is to be a church leader. Besides, the same passage says that bishops must be family men of moral dignity which is impossible for a Roman Catholic priest who's bound to celibacy. Please note 1 Corinthians 7:35-37 is not a command for priests to stay single all their lives!
Now here's a popular misquote from the very passage of Ignatius of Antioch to justify the doctrine of transubstantiation: They abstain from the eucharist and from prayer, bec…

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…

God's Curse Upon Gambling!

One of the greatest hypocrisies that people are facing right now is the sin of legalized gambling. Why do I dare say it is hypocritical? It's because for one legalized gambling promotes all type of filth. We have laws against adultery but not against pornography, we have laws against stealing but not against gambling which is really a sin. Today, Christians must voice out not only against legalized prostitution and legalized pornography, they must also voice against legalized gambling. 1 Timothy 6:10 is true that in these days, the love for money is the root of all evil in the secular world plus gambling is mainly rooted upon the love for money. We ought to think that in every way, money is not evil but the love for it is really evil. Gambling in itself is fed because of the love of money. Pastor Mike Stahl a Baptist preacher had also revealed the ill effects of gambling, in truth it is a very lucrative business that sadly destroys lives. To be honest, gambling has been one of th…
