Introduction to the Ministry

About this blog:

The Bible is clear in 1 Peter 3:14-16 saying, "But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake happy are ye and be not afraid of their terror neither be troubled; But sanctify the LORD God in your hearts and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; Having a good conscience that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers that they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ." It's not just an advice, it's a command from Almighty God to every Christian regardless of position in the church. This blog also aims to help Christians to clarify their own thinking, to become better able to articulate and defend their faith.

Recently it is pretty much a problem that real born again Christians are unable to defend their stand. Why is it happening? Because they lack knowledge of facts and figures that support the Scriptures. Hosea 4:6 says, "For my people are destroyed by a lack of knowledge..." and how true indeed. Faced with the constant harassment from unbelievers from the daily, everyday scoffer to the apologists of false religion who ask questions and many of them unable to answer, or if they answer, are as guilty as they who use logical fallacies in answering the question. Now more than ever, apologetic ministries have become more and more important to show that Christianity is not mere blind faith, it is called to present the facts and figures that are needed.

Also the Bible tells born again Christians to examine all things, hold fast to that which is good. Yet too frequently, most of them are not willing to do that just because it takes some intellectual effort to become workmen that need not to be ashamed. When the grounds and foundation of the faith, Satan uses ignorance to cast doubts and turn out the flames. It is definitely necessary to find everything about the Christian faith- the very foundation is in Jesus Christ, the solid rock.

However unlike most apologetic ministries, this blog will do its best by the grace of God that, it will not be doing personal attacks, rather doctrines over people. The blog will focus on the argument, not people and there will no singling out of individuals or mentioning of names of individuals. Of course, false doctrine will be named by name and false religion will be named by name. By refuting heresies, it refutes the heretics who uphold them.

This is also a soulwinning blog just in case should any unbeliever stumble in to discover the truth!

Mission Statement:

Fundamental Baptist Christian is a Christian apologetics site dedicated to giving timely, relevant information on doctrine and facts.

Part of what we do is to uproot every heresy and false religion especially the parodies of Christianity, debunk them with what the Bible has to say and the Bible ALWAYS comes first above everything else. We provide only doctrinal information straight from the Bible, quote nothing more when it comes to doctrine but the Bible and to uphold the five Biblical principles of faith in Christ alone, by God's grace alone, Scripture alone, in Christ alone, glory to God alone. However we do not attack individual heretics but rather, their heresies as we are a non-personal apologetics group.

We also provide relevant information in helping Christians with their resources to defend the faith and to win souls to Jesus Christ. We are one of the many who do the planting, God does the rest. However we do not engage in debates since it only adds to more foolishness.

We are engaged in expository verse-by-verse preaching. We dig into the meaning of what the Greek says, what the word means and expound its meaning in Scripture. That is we dwell in the meaning of what the passage means, expound it and do the Spurgeon style in preaching.

We also endorse great men of God. Should we ever find a false pastor in our midst, he is automatically removed without being exposed individually.


Vision Statement:

We aim to reach the whole world through the Internet and various fundamental Christian churches that may endorse us who are Baptists in spirit, who uphold biblical authority, autonomy of the local Christian assemblies, priesthood of the Christians, two positions namely pastor and deacon, individual accountability, separation of the function of Church and State, two sacraments namely baptism and Lord's supper each one by no means contribute to salvation and above all SAVED CHURCH MEMBERSHIP.

To give light to where the Gospel is rarely heard, to aim to win as many souls as possible before the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ as Matthew 24:14 declares that the greatest sign of the end times is when He, the Lord Jesus Christ comes back in all His glory when the whole world is saturated with the Gospel. It is our aim to win as many as we can, to hasten His coming by proclaiming the Gospel.


The style in apologetics:

That's about it. Why not attack the heresies and false religions and it will refute the heretic that's holding them. Why not cut down the tree instead of plucking the leaves one by one? If anything must be named names, it's their heresies and false religions which will in turn, refute whoever supports them.

We believe that it's best that the heresies are exposed therefore exposing the heretics that uphold them regardless of whether it be TV, radio, books, whatever. That's what the focus in this ministry is- naming the names of heresies, sins and false religions. If in business, one must not focus on selling one by one all the time but also to see how to sell more items to less customers as well- it's like doing a wholesale/retail thing.

We do not single out false pastors and false prophets by persons rather their doctrine and false religion. Why? In the first place, there are literally plenty of wolves among the flock and singling them out is fighting them one by one rather than fighting with the wolves as a group. Also all the exposing and exposing of persons one by one would actually make one a pretty nasty person and it can get pretty personal to the point logical fallacies can be committed like the poisoning the well argument. We DO NOT follow the styles that most Christian apologists do today- singling out people and it's making them NASTY!

Besides, think about it- 99.9% of the film industry is saturated with ungodliness so we won't even bother singling out every blasphemous film Hollywood has to offer to the public. From the Last Temptation to only God knows what's next, the blasphemy was too wide open and they expose themselves. By exposing blasphemy, these films get exposed. By attacking pornography as sinful, every porn film gets attacked in the process. By attacking witchcraft, every film that promotes witchcraft as good is attacked in the process.


About the members of the ministry:

We are nobody special. We are Christians called out from the darkness and into the light. We are called from the bonds of religion to the glorious calling of the Lord Jesus Christ. We were saved by His grace alone and not by His works, we do good works only by His grace and because we were saved to sin and not to serve. We have chosen to remain unspotted from the world, as to only God gets the glory of what we do. We prefer to give God the glory and not for our selves.

Continue the Reformation Through Expository Preaching

It's not merely enough to protest against Rome. There are many who protest against Rome who are just as heretical as Rome. What's not too surprising is to find some "Baptist" preachers who reject the badly needed art of expository preaching. Why do we need expository preaching? To know why we need it we must first define it.

Defining expository preaching

This is what the book "By the Book: The Whys and Hows of Biblical Preaching" would define expository preaching:
Expository preaching. When the main theme, its main points and further development of the points of the points or sub-points are all derived from the content, context and structural flow of a longer text in Scripture. This is popular when expounding paragraphs, stanzas, and chapters of a book and especially when doing a series of preaching from a book. (p. 45)
Here is the definition from Got Questions on "What is expository preaching?":
Expository preaching involves the exposition, or co…

Continuing the Reformation Also Means Preaching Against Quack Evangelical Pastors

It's so easy to heckle on Roman Catholic priests and similar cultists but hard to acknowledge that Evangelical circles aren't free of wolves in sheep's clothing. What I thought about is how often you may think that a certain pastor is a man of God but he's just as much as a wolf in sheep's clothing as the Roman Catholic priests. Just because a person claims to be a pastor doesn't mean he's a man of God.

Should it be mentioned Jeremiah has condemned irresponsible pastors or shepherds with how they carry their jobs? Read them at Jeremiah 10:21, 12:10, 22:2, 23:1-2 and you'll find out the kind of pastors God hates. Jeremiah 3:15 has God promising to give pastors who will give understanding. The problem is that there are so many pastors who aren't even men of God. They are pastors by profession but they are not pastors in God's eyes. This is a warning to Christians that just because a pastor by profession doesn't mean the person is a man of God.…

The Difference Between Faith Results to Good Works vs. Adding Faith to Good Works

There's a huge argument between the Papists and the Reformers about what authentic faith is. The stand isn't just merely between Papists and the Reformers as it goes as far as Papists, anti-Catholic cults and the true born again Christians (Protestant or not) on what James means by faith without works is dead.

Is James saying that in order to get saved or to stay saved that you must add faith to good works?

Perhaps one reason why Martin Luther once thought of the Book of James as an epistle of straw was because it felt like the author added good works to saving faith. I remembered having a dialogue with a third degree cousin of mine who was a Roman Catholic apologist. He knew I was a former Catholic turned Baptist. I had a conversation with him and he told me that I should examine the Book of James to see good works are required for justification.

The Roman Catholic view as well as the anti-Catholic cultist view tends to use James' writing to justify their heresy. Here'…

What's Wrong with the Ang Dating Daan Movement?

The Ang Dating Daan movement is by the Members Church of God International spearheaded by its pastor (and so-called "prophet") Eliseo Soriano.  While claiming to be an expositor of the Scriptures with his "Itanong Mo Kay Soriano" or "Ask Soriano" In English, this religious group actually isn't Christian as some of the ignorant would want to believe.  Though the group claims the Bible is their only authority (as some cults do) but the problem is that they believe only Eli Soriano may interpret the Scriptures.  This is utter heresy!  Not even a great man in the Scriptures, Charles Spurgeon ever made such a preposterous claim!  This is no better than the "true church" movement by Darwin Fish which is exposed by Pastor Phil Johnson as a heretical movement.  In fact, I'm not going to waste my time debating with ADD members, they are a total waste of my time as every other debate.
Unlike John F. Macarthur of Grace to You that actually encoura…

Plenty of Today's Churches Need a Radical Reformation Against Easy "Christianity"!

Whenever it's the Reformation, it's easy to think about Martin Luther's protest against the Roman Catholic institution. It's easy to think about fighting the Great Whore of Revelation. Here's the question that I'd want to raise, "Do you realize that we're also having churches plagued with easy believism or easy Christianity?" Easy believism is a term that's so easily confused. Some may think that they're easy believists but they reject any notion that a person can get saved and sin all they want. The real easy believists are those who believe that they can be saved and still remain the same. If Rome's doctrine of salvation by works is a sure road to Hell then so is Antinomianism.
It's a common problem today in many churches that they uphold the heresy of easy prayerism. They teach a distorted picture of once saved always saved. Once saved always saved is biblical but we must emphasize on the characteristics of those who are truly …

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…

Testimony of Former Iglesia Ni Cristo Member, Now a Born Again Christian

Editor's note: 
First and foremost, I would like to thank the Bereans for this wonderful story of a former Iglesia ni Cristo minister (or pastor), now he has become a Baptist Christian.  It's a sad story that some people have just jumped from one cult to another.  Some members of the Watchtower Society, Charismatic Movement or the Iglesia ni Cristo have left Roman Catholicism but they have never truly come to know the truth of salvation is by faith in Christ alone and that any good works after Christian life is but the grace of God at work in the believer.  Now for this brave testimony that I can really share after many years of searching for one testimony which I hope will further bring more INC members to Jesus Christ.

May I begin with a word of prayer that in the midst of all these trouble, I call upon Jesus Christ the Son of God who the Iglesia ni Cristo deny is indeed God, the only way to salvation, that they trust upon their works and church membership than Him alone.  I…
