Ex-IFB Pastor Still Rejects the Word of God

If you don't believe what the bible says you can't be saved.

I don't post there anymore, there are biblical precepts about preaching the gospel and getting out of Dodge and leaving the dust of your sandals when someone refuses to hear. Obviously as an ex-IFB pastor he heard the gospel many times. I am always sad about someone in his situation. There is nothing to cheer there. I know how Satan goes on the prowl for souls in taking someone away from God. It almost happened to me when I was young.

One thing when I was UU, they always attacked the Word of God, telling us the Bible was fake baloney and more. I read Bert Ehrman [error-man?]as a UU and read his book "Misquoting Jesus". He didn't succeed in turning me against God's Word, though I took him seriously at one point. I have seen all those arguments before. Yes the Word refers to Jesus Himself. Yes, Jesus is referring to Old Testament scripture.

The ex-IFB pastor states that he is upset that some believe salvation is dependent on reading the right words and believing the right things. Salvation is dependent on being born again in Jesus Christ, if you believe in the rapture and have been stuck with the NIV without one KJV in town, this doesn't mean you are going to hell. Have you been regenerated? That is what matters.

He is right the first century church had no bible per se, they sent those epistles and letters around [remember those?] and copied them and shared them. We read those today, they of course referred to the Old Testament [the Torah]. The Old Testament has many prophecies and scriptures that point to Jesus Christ.

His third claim that the gospels were not written until decades later is false. This is one Roman Catholicism sadly has spread through out the world.

They read parts of scripture to each other before printing presses. They "heard" the Word. Yes people did have to rely on others to read scripture to them or preach the Word. Sadly this is something the harlot used to deceive.

If you believe Jesus Christ is the Word and said what is in scripture, you do not separate the two. I don't. I read just about every book from every other religion in the world when I was UU. Nothing is like the Bible. It is no where near the same. Those books do not interconnect and have false science, history and prophecy. Bert Ehrman's so called scholarship is just the same rehashed excuses. Every false church and every false preacher and those who reject Jesus Christ always go after the validity of scripture. It is the foundation they wish to strike down. I listened to endless exhortations about how the Bible was not true, was manufactured legend and cobbled together bits. Thank God I went and read it for myself instead of taking their word for it!

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Psalm 142

Psalm 142 King James Version (KJV)

142 I cried unto the Lord with my voice; with my voice unto the Lord did I make my supplication.
I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my trouble.
When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.
I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.
I cried unto thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.
Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.
Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.
This was a psalm I was reading today. Life sometimes can feel very wearing. There are things disturbing me out in the world and in private life as well.  I'm facing those times of seeing the wicked prosper and wondering why so few care about the Lord or even the same things I do.  Sometimes this world feels so foreign to me and this place of not belonging gets to person. This world is not our home.
 I also have faced my own sins. There have been temptations which so far I have not given into, but it makes me wonder if Satan is on the attack and seeking to crush me lately.  I certainly sinned in smaller matters especially when angry.  Christians will be tested.  I had my time recently where I said to my husband, "Why is God not answering my prayers?"   I am not angry at God, but it's more a feeling of growing old and having regrets about how my life on this earth turned out and frustrations not in seeking self-glory but in things I wanted to accomplish or to have some meaning to it all. Of course the meaning we seek is to be in Jesus Christ not ourselves.  I am showing the Lord my trouble now to overcome these things. Snares definitely were laid for me. God has helped me gain a better place in clearing my mind of the thoughts the wicked had given me many times. There are many on this earth who have felt like "no man cared for my soul."
 It has to do with some personal struggles that are lifelong and related the grief that is tied up to having to depart from wicked family members [obeying God in doing so] and how it has created loss of other relationships. Spiritually toughening up isn't always easy. Sometimes I do feel at a loss and need to pray to God for direction. The psalms are very  important to me in what they convey. I can not feel like a "failure" as a Christian knowing David felt many of the same things and cried out to God. If you ever have one of those days where you feel like you are vexed about life, and feel you have had too many sins to confess and to have repented of, turning to the Psalms is always a good idea. It is literally praying to God to "bring your soul out of prison". I am praying to God to do that very thing right now. 

Phony Papal "Miracles"

The phony baloney "blood" liquifies probably when enough heat is applied to melt the "wax" or whatever else they got in there.

Januarius? They claim they have no "record" of him that is contemporary to his time.  Is that like Janus?

Dalai Lama Attended the Last Prayer Breakfast

We know there is nothing remotely "Christian" about this event.

Rapture Doctrine

Forced Church Attendance?

"Senator Sylvia Allen, while discussing a gun bill, proposed the idea of mandating church attendance on Sundays to "bring back the soul of the country".

Don't give the new world order any more ideas.....What about the people who believe in church on Saturday?

"Sprinklers" To Keep Homeless Away at Catholic Cathedral

More hypocrisy from the harlot. I guess they followed the spike-installers for an example.
