The Modern Gospel is One Gospel Which is Not Another

If salvation by works is leading people to Hell then so is an incomplete presentation of the Gospel. Many people today think that they're really once saved, always saved but do they even know that true salvation is to be saved from sin? The doctrine of eternal security has been twisted to look like a license to sin whenever you have people who say you can get saved and sin all you want. Let's take time to examine the dangerous modern gospel. This phenomenon of "Easy Christianity" is one of the many reasons why so many fake converts exist today. What's causing the phenomenon that many people think they're once saved always saved but they were never saved? It's all thanks to a group of fake preachers who preach a the modern gospel which is not another.

Many preachers today only care about numbers but never about whether or not these people are truly converted. While some people have had genuine conversions from a sinner's prayer evangelism it was because the pastor wasn't wishy washy. The pastor preached a real message against sin and people realized how sinful they were. Although there were no external tears, you can't expect a perfect repentance (because true repentance grows as a person is sanctified) but you can see that true conversion is happening. The same pastor who had led some to a sinner's prayer would confront the possibility that such a person isn't saved. But today many think that just by saying a prayer they are saved even when evidence suggests otherwise.

The modernistic "gospel" is dangerous with its no repentance. Acts 17:30 calls people to repent of their sins. The idea of a salvation without repentance is dangerous. Repentance is derved from the Greek "metanoneia" meaning to have a change in mind which results to a change in purpose. If there's no repentance of one's sins then there can't be any salvation. The reason is that a heart that's hardened in sin will refuse to savingly believe. You can't love God and love sin at the same time. If people aren't repentant of their sins how can they genuinely believe in the Savior from sin? Jesus' mission is to save people from their sins and not in their sins. Many people think that they're saved and that they can sin all they want. That's one dangerous blunder that has also sent people to Hell together with the self-righteous crowd. It's warned in Hebrews 12:14 that without holiness no man can see the LORD. This isn't a call to have holiness precede salvation but rather holiness characterizes someone who's eternally secure in Christ.

Others even go as far as to even present a Jesus without the death, burial and resurrection. Some have even gone as far that you can just believe in Jesus without the necessary gospel of the death, burial and resurrection. Worse, some of them even misquote Romans 10:9-13 to teach such a dangerous message. The Gospel message of the Bible is Jesus' death, burial and resurrection. The Bible teaches Jesus Christ is the Son of God. 1 John 5:13 teaches that those who overcame sin believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. If your Jesus is not Lord, if your Jesus is not God, if you believe in a Jesus that's not of the Bible then you're not saved to start with. There's no Christ without the cross (Galatians 6:12-14) and no salvation without the shedding of blood (Hebrews 9:22).

The idea of poking fun at Hell is one of the most dangerous things to happen. Rob Bell claims to be a Christian pastor but denies a literal Hell. Some modernist preachers even deny Hell. A lot of modernistic preachers even poke fun at Hell and only speak of nice things. To deny the reality of a burning Hell is dangerous. How can people know the truth about salvation and why they need it if they're not warned about Hell to start with? It would really be a huge reunion in Hell when all those misled people will forever accuse that quack pastor of only preaching nice things but never about Hell.

True Christian love doesn't condone to mistakes. It doesn't care if it offends people as long as it lovingly warns people to protect them from danger. The problem today is that the majority is usually laughing off God's warning until it's too late. Noah was only with his family and the whole world laughed. Lot was laughed at by the residents of Sodom concerning upcoming judgment. Matthew 7:13-14 warns that more people are wrong than right. God doesn't care about the majority's decision to rebel against Him. God's standard never changes regardless of what people think. Truth will always remain the truth even when only a few people believe it. No amount of majority votes will ever change the facts.

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…
