Test All Things Pt. 9 – ‘Judge Not’…At All???

By Terrence Straughter & SlaveOfJesusChrist

I Thessalonians 4

7    For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness.
8    Therefore he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who has also given us His Holy Spirit.

When it’s only “God can judge me” what are you going to say when he finally does judge you? Many already knew the truth but rejected it. The people you accused of judging, and condemning you, just for preaching God’s message to repent and believe the Gospel, walk in righteousness, abstain from sin, God may say “that was me working through them to reach you”. God’s sheep have an accountability to preach the gospel, and to help each other out (particularly fellow members is Christ.)

I John 4

4    You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
5    They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them.
6    We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

Its because we know that everyone is in need of hearing the truth, just as every child is in need of parenting. No one ever asks a child if they want a parent. Children are parented whether they want it or not. Christians have truth from God that can save everyone, who believes it, from God’s wrath. And it doesn’t matter if anyone wants to hear it. If we love God, and the people of this world, we’ll tell them the truth, even though Jesus, himself, told us this…

John 3

18    “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19    And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20    For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
21    But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

That is why we give these warnings:

Hebrews 10

26    For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,
27    but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.
28    Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
29    Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?
30    For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. And again, “The LORD will judge His people.”
31    It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Hebrews 6

1    Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God,
2    of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
3    And this we will do if God permits.
4    For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit,
5    and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come,
6    if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.
7    For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God;
8    but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.

Hebrews 3

12    Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God;
13    but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
14    For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,
15    while it is said: ” Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

1John 1

5    This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.
6    If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.
7    But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
8    If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10    If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

1John 2

1    My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
2    And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.
3    Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.

Test All Things Pt. 8 – Gnosticism

By Terrence Straughter

 temptation

I John 4:1-3 NKJV

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

Test All Things Pt. 7 – A Little Leaven

By Terrence Straughterleavenandunleaven

Truth…truth…truth…truth…truth…truth…damnable heresy…truth…truth…truth…truth

“A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump” (Galatians 5:9). We have to understand this is what Satan’s ministers do. They are up there preaching ‘Jesus’ and look just like they are of Christ, the scriptures clearly tell us this is the case with them (2Corinthians 11:12-15).

The most deceptive lies are the ones closest to the truth. If they hold to anything that’s going to “accurse” us, and themselves as well, first, they need correction (Galatians 1:6-9). Bible says warn them twice in Titus 3:10, and to reject them if they don’t receive. These are crucial truths to be accepted, like the Gospel, and essentials of the faith that we can’t deny and have eternal life. Not every doctrinal difference calls for separation.

Now if they rebel then you are to mark, avoid and expose them. (Romans 16:17,18, Ephesians 5:11,12) They are leading people astray. So you tell the church, “So and so is teaching another gospel.” It’s not gossip and slander like people want to call it. It’s in the open, leading people astray. So the exposé is not revealing anything behind closed doors. Instead, someone is ignorantly or proudly teaching heresy out in public, or maybe their doctrinal statement of faith denies Jesus is God, or something else. Well, it’s deceiving openly, so we are to correct openly.

It’s just sad when people don’t want anything said. The Bible calls these people, evil doers, and wolves, and we need to know them and separate from the rebels. That’s not hate. That’s obedience, and love, to keep the sheep away from them. You already know that God wants his church without spot, or wrinkle. Well don’t play with the wolves then. They are in the church as written in Jude. That’s sad when people know someone is a heretic but they want to get a word from them. God says don’t give them God speed or you are a partaker of their evil deeds (2John 1:8-11).

I could possibly listen to someone like Creflo Dollar, and his whole sermon could be biblical, and helpful, but because I know his gospel, it’s wrong and disobedient to God. We don’t need a word from heretics go to God, or a sibling in the faith.

God bless

The Other Side of Mother Teresa

Mother-Teresa_805

Roman Catholicism is a religion that does not teach the true gospel of salvation that is taught in Scripture. Therefore, its clergymen, and clergywomen, are not believers in the Jesus of the Bible. Jesus warned his followers of false prophets, and called them ravenous wolves. He said that they can be identified by their fruits.

Matthew 7

15    “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
16    You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?
17    Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
18    A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
19    Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20    Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

The bad fruit of Roman Catholic clergymen is their damnable heresies, and where there is false doctrine there can also be found other bad fruits.

Mother Teresa’s refusal to accept food or drink (and her taking the money instead for the poor) is nothing but an affectation aimed at impressing the media (“Deifying Diana, an icon for India”, 5 October). She routinely travelled first class on planes. And a large amount, if not the majority, of the money she collected was spent on religious activities, such as on the upkeep of the hundreds of nunneries (which have no charitable functions) that her order maintains around the world.

Re-using old needles in her homes in India is normal practice (I speak as a former volunteer at her home for the dying in Calcutta), but she herself had treatments which only the richest Indians can afford; she also had treatment at exclusive clinics such as the Scripps at La Jolla, California.

It is true that she was not too well disposed toward actresses playing her, but it is also true that she appeared in at least a dozen documentaries advertising her faith and her “humility”.

Dr Z Kittler

Independent.Co.Uk

The late Mother Teresa’s saintly image has been called into question by researchers conducting an in-depth study of her life.

Mother Teresa may have spent the vast majority of her 87 years looking after the sick and poor, but researchers from Montreal and Ottawa universities have now raised questions over the ‘dubious’ nature of her care, as well querying her “questionable” political contacts.

The researchers also raised concerns over the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s ‘suspicious’ financial arrangements, which they claim saw large sums of money transferred into her ‘secret’ bank accounts.

Writing in the Journal of Studies in Religion/Sciences after analysing around 300 documents surrounding Mother Teresa’s life, Dr Serge Larivie and Dr Genevieve Chenard say they have uncovered details that compromise the Albanian-born nun’s saintly image.

They claim that many of the ‘missions’ set up by Mother Teresa were unfit for their inhabitants, calling them ‘homes for the dying’ due to their poor hygiene and a shortage of food, care and medication.

The researchers believe a lack of money cannot be the reason for the poor conditions however, as Mother Teresa raised hundreds of millions of pounds during her lifetime, although much of that money apparently appears to have vanished into several ‘secret’ bank accounts reportedly kept by the nun.

The researchers also questioned why, despite openly offering prayers and medallions bearing depictions of the Virgin Mary, Mother Teresa provided no direct or monetary aid to victims of a number of natural disasters in India.

Dr Larivie says: “Given the parsimonious management of Mother Teresa’s works, one may ask where the millions of dollars for the poorest of the poor have gone?”

The researchers went on to query Mother Teresa’s politics and political contacts, accusing her of accepting a financial grant from the brutal Duvalier dictatorship, which is deemed responsible for the murders of over 30,000 Haitians between 1957 and 1986.

They also accuse Mother Teresa of spreading hardline right wing Catholic ideology, saying she held “overly dogmatic views regarding, in particular, abortion, contraception and divorce.”

Dr Larivie said that much of Mother Teresa’s saintly public image was shaped by the BBC journalist Malcolm Muggeridge, who shared her conservative Catholic views, particularly on abortion, and whose promotion of her led to the nun’s international fame.

Despite the negatives, Dr Larivie accepts there are many positive aspects to Mother Teresa’s life and work.

He said: “If the extraordinary image of Mother Teresa conveyed in the collective imagination has encouraged humanitarian initiatives that are genuinely engaged with those crushed by poverty, we can only rejoice.”

He added: “It is likely that she has inspired many humanitarian workers whose actions have truly relieved the suffering of the destitute and addressed the causes of poverty and isolation without being extolled by the media…Nevertheless, the media coverage of Mother Teresa could have been a little more rigorous.”

Mother Teresa died in 1997 and was beatified by the Catholic Church in 2003, leaving her just one miracle away from sainthood.

Test All Things Pt. 6 – The Founding Fathers of America

founding-fathers

Is America rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ?

&

Where the founding Fathers of America believers in the gospel, and the God of the Bible?

These questions are important, because the average Christian is taught to think about the founding fathers, and the American revolution, as though both are rotted in Christianity. Many are also taught that Christian political activism, and its war against the dominate liberal culture of America, is their Christian duty in America.

A quote from Thomas Paine, one of the founding fathers, and the author of “Common Sense” and “The Age of Reason” proves that the claim of America being a Christian country, that was founded by Christians, should not be trusted, but further examined, because below is a clear, and bold, rejection of Jesus Christ, and the gospel.

The Age of Reason, page 111 & 112

It is not the existence, or non-existence, of the persons that I trouble myself about; it is the fable of Jesus Christ, as told in the New Testament, and the wild and visionary doctrine raised thereon, against which I contend. The story, taking it as it is told, is blasphemously obscene. It gives an account of a young woman engaged to be married, and while under this engagement she is, to speak plain language, debauched by a ghost, under the thomas paineimpious pretence (Luke, chap. i., ver. 35), that “the Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee.” Notwithstanding which, Joseph afterward marries her, cohabits with her as his wife, and in his turn rivals the ghost. This is putting the story into intelligible language, and when told in this manner, there is not a priest but must be ashamed to own it.*

*Mary, the supposed virgin-mother of Jesus, had several other children, sons and daughters. See Matthew, chap. xiii, verses 55, 56.
Obscenity in matters of faith, however wrapped up, is always a token of fable and imposture; for it is necessary to our serious
belief in God that we do not connect it with stories that run, as this does, into ludicrous interpretations. This story is upon the face of
it, the same kind of story as that of Jupiter and Leda, or Jupiter and Europa, or any of the amorous adventures of Jupiter; and shows, as
is already stated in the former part of the Age of Reason, that the Christian faith is built upon the heathen mythology.

How important is Thomas Paine?

Another founding father, John Adams, stated Paine’s importance in this way:

Without the pen of the author of Common Sense, the sword of Washington would have been raised in vain. [5]

In his book, “The age of Reason”, Paine openly rejected the gospel of Jesus Christ, and affirmed Deism as the true religion. Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams, were also Deists.

The founding fathers of America established the American Constitution, which many American Christians have been deceived by. The deception is the belief that God wants Christians, and the common citizens, to revolt against tyrants, such as the king of England, and anyone who tries to change the constitution.

Does God want the common citizens to rebel against those in authority?

Exodus 22

28    “You shall not revile God, nor curse a ruler of your people.

Does Christ want his followers to rebel against their oppressors.

Luke 20

21    Then they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, we know that You say and teach rightly, and You do not show personal favoritism, but teach the way of God in truth:
22    Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”
23    But He perceived their craftiness, and said to them, “Why do you test Me?
24    Show Me a denarius. Whose image and inscription does it have?” They answered and said, “Caesar’s.”
25    And He said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

Romans 13

1    Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.
2    Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.
3    For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same.
4    For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.
5    Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake.
6    For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing.
7    Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.

1Peter 4

11    Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul,
12    having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation.
13    Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme,
14    or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good.
15    For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men —
16    as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God.
17    Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.
18    Servants, be submissive to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the harsh.
19    For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully.
20    For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God.
21    For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:
22    ” Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found in His mouth”;
23    who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously;
24    who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness — by whose stripes you were healed.
25    For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

1Timothy 6

1    Let as many bondservants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and His doctrine may not be blasphemed.
2    And those who have believing masters, let them not despise them because they are brethren, but rather serve them because those who are benefited are believers and beloved. Teach and exhort these things.

Indeed, the founding fathers of America has led many Christians astray during the time of the revolution. However, they have been dead for almost two hundred years. Therefore, Christians are not being led astray by the founding fathers today. Instead, those who are still promoting the idea that America is a Christian nation, that was founded by Christians, are the real problem in the church. They must be corrected, because they are misleading, and confusing Christians throughout the church in America. Also, some, such as David Barton, Peter Lilback, and Kirk Cameron, have dedicated themselves to deceiving Christ’s church in America into following a false Christianity, which is a nationalist cult, which claims to be Christianity, but is really just a, dominionist, social gospel. According to Scripture, these kind of people must be marked, and avoided.

Romans 16

17    Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.
18    For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.
19    For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil.

The Catholic Calvinists Pt. 2 – John Piper

piperlarge

The Reformed Calvinist teacher, and internationally known author, and speaker, John Piper, has shown himself to have Roman Catholic tendencies. Piper is a former student of Fuller Theological Seminary, which has trained a number of emerging church leaders, such as Rick Warren, Tony Jones, and Rob Bell. The seminaries’ faculty has consisted of heretical teachers, such as it’s former president, C. Peter Wagner, of the New Apostolic Reformation John Wimber, of the Vineyard Movement, and the universalist, Thomas Talbott. John Piper has also attended the University of Munich, which was known for being under the control of the Jesuit order, during the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries, because it is one of their many tools during the Counter Reformation. The University of Munich is also the same college that the former pope, Benedict XVI, attended.

John Piper has shown his partiality toward Roman Catholic heretics, such as the mystic Bernard of Clairvaux, who was a major contributor to building the virgin Mary cult of Roman Catholicism, by listing Clairaux as a lover of God, and one of the most God-besotted people in the world. See Piper’s quote below:

Desiring God

Or take hymns! How unabashedly hedonistic they are! Hymns are the voices of the church’s lovers, and lovers are the least duty-oriented and most God-besotted people in the world.

Jesus, Thou joy of loving hearts

Thou fount of life, Thou light of men

From the best bliss that earth imparts

We turn unfilled to Thee again.

Bernard of Clairvaux

The quote above is taken from Piper’s book on “Christian Hedonism”, which is a perversion of both God, and the gospel. One of the origins for Piper’s deceptive philosophy of hedonism is, according to John Piper, the Roman Catholic heretic, Blaise Pascal.

John Piper & Christian Hedonism

“During my first quarter in seminary, I was introduced to the argument for Christian Hedonism and one of its great exponents, Blaise Pascal. He wrote: ‘All men seek happiness. This is without exception. Whatever different means they employ, they all tend to this end. … The will never takes the least step but to this object. This is the motive of every action of every man, even of those who hand themselves.’ This statement so fit with my own deep longings, and all that I had ever seen in others, that I accepted it and have never found any reason to doubt it. … Jonathan Edwards tied it [Pascal’s statement] to the Word of Christ: ‘Jesus knew that all mankind were in the pursuit of happiness. He has directed them in the true way to it, and He tells them what they must become in order to be blessed and happy’” (Desiring God, location 198, 212, 3761).

The Roman Catholic Blaise Pascal was a brilliant mathematician but he was also a theological heretic and a deeply confused man, spiritually. Though he attacked some aspects of Romanism, he accepted the papacy, the mass, the saints, Mariolatry, and veneration of relics. He was deeply influenced by the blind mysticism of Jansenism and he spent a lot of time in the convent where his sister was a nun and where Catholic mysticism was practiced.

In late 2011, Piper has also taught a form of Roman Catholic Mysticism, known as Lectico Devina Lite on his website, and removed it after a backlash of controversy.

DesiringGod.Org

Update: Formerly I listed Lectio Divina as a third system for prayer. I’ve since removed it for the confusion it has caused. We do not endorse contemplative spirituality. The main point I’d like to recommend is using the text of Scripture as an organizer for our prayers — prayers that are exegetically faithful and gospel rich. I’m sorry for introducing the category.

The former pope Benedict is also in favor of practicing Lectico Devina as stated below:

Zenit.Org

“If this practice is promoted with efficacy, I am convinced that it will produce a new spiritual springtime in the Church,” stated the Holy Father.Pope-620x395

To promote “lectio divina,” Benedict XVI suggested “new methods, attentively pondered, adapted to the times.”

“One must never forget that the Word of God is a lamp for our steps and a light on our path,” he said.

Piper has also practiced Lectico Devina with Beth Moore, at the Passion 2012 conference.

John Piper also talks as though he believes that Roman Catholicism is part of Christ’s church, while also teaching that the pope undermines the faith of his followers. He does this by calling the pope one of the teachers of the church.

DesiringGod.Org

Nevertheless, God’s mercy is not a warrant to neglect or deny precious truths, especially those that are at the heart of how we get right with God. And the teachers of the church (notably the Pope) will be held more responsible than others for teaching what is fully biblical.

Thus, any church whose teaching rejects the imputation of the righteousness of Christ as an essential ground for our justification would be a church whose error is so close to the heart of the gospel as to be involved in undermining the faith of its members.

Piper has also made a public prayer on Twitter for the next pope, as though God might use the office of this age old enemy of Christ, the gospel, and the church.

Twitter.Com/JohnPiper

O Lord of truth and mercy, put in place a Pope most willing to reform the Catholic Church in accord with your most holy word.

What should believers do about people like John Piper, who causes divisions, and offenses concerning the doctrine of Christ, and the gospel?

They must remember that a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.

Matthew 7

15    “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
16    You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?
17    Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
18    A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
19    Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20    Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

They must mark, and avoid them.

Romans 16

17    Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.
18    For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.
19    For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil.

They must let these kind of people be accursed.

Galatians 1

6    I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel,
7    which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.
8    But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
9    As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.

And they must not take delight in them, nor promote them.

2John 1

8    Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward
.9    Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.
10    If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him;
11    for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.

Matthew 7

21    “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
22    Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’
23    And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
