You Can Never Love Jesus and Hate Studying the Bible at the Same Time

It's stupid how how some people who say, "I love Jesus." but when I ask them about Bible studies they're so indifferent. That kind of attitude is a problem today in the modern "church". We have people who have an Easy "Christianity". They adhere to the heresy that you can get saved without resulting to any necessary changes. There's nothing in Scriptures to suggest that one could get saved and never be delivered from a life of sin. Worse, such people think they can get saved and have no interest in reading the Bible. Worse, when I tell them that they could be false converts they start accusing me of teaching works salvation.

I remembered somebody tried to argue from Romans 7:15 to justify carnal Christianity. I admit that person is always taking verses out of context. It's amazing how he claims to be a Christian but hates personal holiness one way or another. He also hates expository preaching and accused preachers like Charles H. Spurgeon and John Gill as "Jesuits". He's also called a lot of expository preachers as "Jesuits" in his quest to promote his Antinomian Christianity. I wonder has he read the rest of the context especially Romans 7;22 which says Paul delights after the Law of God? He was citing from the King James Version but I wonder did he use a black marker to delete certain verses that point to sanctification?

If you love Jesus then the natural reaction is that you want to know Him more. It's stupid to say you have Jesus but you hate His Word. If you get saved then your desires will start to differ. Nobody can be saved and still love the world. No, the Christian will start growing in grace to reject the world. It will be a cold day in Hell before there will ever be a Christian who loves Jesus but not the Scriptures.
Psalm 1:2 
But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
Psalm 40:8 
I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, Thy Law is within my heart.
Psalm 119:70
Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in Thy Law.
Psalm 119:77 
Let Thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for Thy Law is my delight.
Psalm 119:92 
Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction. 
Psalm 119:174 
I have longed for Thy salvation, O LORD; and Thy Law is my delight. 

David expressed how much the Law of God is his delight. The Christian's desire for the Word of God is not only an ought but it should result to delighting in the Word of God. Becoming a Christian means you seek to love the Word of God. You want to learn more from the Word and God and take it into context and not out of context.
John 17:17  
Sanctify them through Thy truth: Thy Word is truth.

If you hate sanctification and holiness then the Bible isn't the book for you. If you hate sanctification then the Bible will disagree with you 100%. I don't read it anywhere that you can get saved and still remain the same. If you love Jesus then you will love His Word and you will desire to know Him more. In turn, you want to be more like him in the pursuit of Christian holiness.

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…
