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.

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…

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…

Answering Self-Appointed Lady Catechist's Ridiculous Claim That Bible Alone and Faith Alone Leads to Evil

I just read across the ridiculous posts by a certain amateur or self-proclaimed Catholic faith defender  lady (I'll probably call her Self-Appointed Lady Catechist to avoid getting personal or shaming her in public) where they say that the doctrine Bible alone and faith alone leads to evil. It made me think that the person is obviously using the wrong samples and that she's woefully ignorant.

Let us just take a look at this poor sampling she did. She should be grateful that I am not shaming her openly. Rather, I am criticizing her mistakes for the sake of her eternal soul. She's using the picture of a depraved "Baptist" church that has a female minister (as if the Roman Catholic institution doesn't have nuns) performing a lesbian marriage. I don't deny that there are fake Baptist churches and there are fake pastors here and there. But here's what I should address first and foremost - that Baptist church is evil not because it's Bible alone but bec…

Some Roman Catholic Fanatics Deny to Death That the Late Billy Graham Was an Ally of the Vatican

It's a sad thing to think of Billy Graham's death. I really stopped supporting him years ago because of his unequal yoke with Rome. Now, I also remembered a couple of debates turning ugly I had with self-appointed Roman Catholic apologists. I ran across a Facebook page called "Buang Again" (and buang means crazy or insane in English) where they made some of the most absurd claims. Aside from lying that the born again Christian worship service is a Sunday concert - they even lied that the late Graham is the supposed founder of Born Again Christianity.

This puts them in a major pickle for several reasons. I remembered watching a documentary on John Paul II from a Catholic point of view. The same video said that it did shock some people that John Paul II called Graham as the former's brother in Christ. Graham even called Pope John Paul II as the unquestionably most influential voice of morality. This would put Roman Catholic fanatics in a pickle unless they conveni…

Conspiracy Theories and Guilt by Association Fallacy

Conspiracy theories can be very misleading and are full of logical fallacies which ultimately leads to false information.  Although I find the book "The Babylonian Connection?" by Ralph Woodrow to be faulty, however I would even say one of my former references "The Two Babylons" is also full of logical fallacies rather than testing the pagan practices of Roman Catholicism with how they violate the Bible's principles.  As said, the argument itself has been stemming more on the similarities between the Catholic view of Mary and the pagan goddess Semiramis rather than condemning the whole act as idolatry according to the Bible. Fortunately the book "Truth Encounter" doesn't do that and is rather focused on why Catholicism is unbiblical than spend too much time comparing it to pagan practice.  Conspiracy theories tend to commit logical fallacies like guilt by association, fallacy of division and ad homimen but more importantly, guilt by association l…

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…

Charles Spurgeon Speaks of Being Hated by the World for Loving Jesus

Looking at Spurgeon's quote, nothing is clearer than the truths of John 15:18-19 and James 4:4.  If you are a friend of the world, you are an enemy of God and since the Christian is a friend of God, they are enemies of the world.  I always thought that one way or another, inspirational quotes from Christian preachers is how God speaks to me and my brethren.
It made me think that Christians may get worldly for awhile but the world gives them no rest.  Just think how miserable the backslider is and how joyful such a person is when they are back to God.  I thought of how miserable I was when I cowered for awhile due to persecution because God told me to pick up my pen and write for His glory.  As Martin Luther said, "If you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write."  Some people can momentarily quit out of fear or compromise but God always finds a way to put them back in shape.  I am thankful for God's grace that without it, no saint of His can persevere t…

What's Wrong with Feng Shui?

Feng Shui will always be of the Devil and will always be. It's very sad to see how many people will continue to hate Christians for telling them the truth that their deeds are evil. There is NO place for Feng Shui in the Christian home. Christians MUST reject any form of witchcraft. It does not mean that Feng Shui is not Twilight or Harry Potter that it's not witchcraft. God warns, "When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee." in Deuteronomy 18:9-12.
So what is F…

Testimony of Pastor William Murray

I was born into a home of near constant rage and violence. My mother never married my father or my brother's father. As a result of my mother's constant angry outbursts she could not hold down a job and she, my brother and I lived with her parents and my unmarried uncle in a small row house in Baltimore, Maryland.
My grandfather had never filed an income tax return and most of what he did do during his life was illegal or ill advised. He had no savings. My grandmother read Tarot cards and sent out demons by burning human hair. My uncle kept hoards of pornography in his room and my mother filled the house with statues of mating animals which she worshipped.
My mother accepted the communist doctrine when I was about ten years old and from that time on there were socialist and communist study group meetings in the basement of our Baltimore home.
I was taught that because there was not God there was no such thing as right or wrong. My mother told me it was better to be a homosexual t…

Salvation Does Not Stop With Just Being Saved

While salvation from the penalty of sin is a one time event but this salvation continues into sanctification.  The "Easy Christianity" crowd is bound to say, "I am saved now I can do what I want." or "It is possible to be saved and never change at all."  Those are heresies that deny the real grace of God.  When a person is saved then there is the grace of God that makes the unteachable to be teachable, the sinner to be saved from their sin and there is really salvation is not just from the penalty of sin (past) but presently all born again Christians are into the process of sanctification.

The whole problem of "Easy Christianity" is the rejection of inevitable sanctification in their lives.  They would slander good men of the Gospel as "works salvationists" and "Pharisees" as if they do not read the Bible that when you are saved, there ought to be change.  Did they not read in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 that salvation changes the …
