Philippians 2:12 12 So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; In the second chapter of the book of Philippians we see a verse often used as a means of demonstrating that a born again believer can lose their salvation, and that they must do good works in order to maintain salvation for a fear of losing salvation. Isaiah 64:6 For all of us have become like one who is unclean, And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment; AndRead More →

This is outside of my normal posts but I’m putting together a list of quotes, videos, links and evidence that shows that the masks we’re wearing do not prevent covid-19. A bit messy and will organize this better as soon as I can. Updated 7/27/2020 Pslam 119:66 Teach me good [a]discernment and knowledge, For I believe in Your commandments. 1 Kings 3:9 9 So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?” 1 Thesolonians 5:16-22 16Rejoice always; 17pray without ceasing; 18in everything give thanks; for this is God’sRead More →

James 1:5 5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and [a]without reproach, and it will be given to him. 1 John 4:1-3 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you haveRead More →

Jeremiah 1 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; Fetal Development Milestones At conception, everything about your child has been determined – whether it is a boy or girl, eye color, hair color, talents and personality. Your unborn baby’s heart begins beating just 3 weeks after conception. Twelve weeks after conception, your baby is coordinated enough to suck his or her thumb. At 22 weeks after conception, your baby can recognize your voice, breathing, and heartbeat. 1 day to 7 weeks A new individual receives 23 chromosomes from each parent. He or she isRead More →

This isn’t an argument or bashing. The difference between the Roman Catholic and Protestant view of Christ’s command (Luke 22:19) instituted by our Lord may seem trivial to some, but at one time in our history resulted in violence and a 30 year war. Roman Catholics believe the elements of bread and wine literally become the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ and that it is a propitiatory sacrifice offered for both the living and the dead. Those in purgatory benefit from this as well. The protestant view is that the elements are not literally Jesus but are symbolic; a remembrance of whatRead More →

I’m unsure if a Cardinal in times past would have been allowed to publicly disagree with the Pope in matters of faith and morals. I could be in error about this. Pope Francis says “How did Judas end up? I don’t know,” – The RC Cardinal disagrees with Pope Francis. So who’s correct? The ‘visible head of the church on earth’ or the ‘cardinal?’ How do we test whether or not Pope Francis or the Cardinal is correct about Judas? They both cannot be right. In John 17 Verses 9-10 We see that our Lord does not pray for the world but for those whomRead More →

The East-west Schism / The Great schism (1054) – Eastern Orthodox / Roman Catholic Church schism. Many people (even protestants) believe the division in the church started with Martin Luther. I hope to ‘briefly’ cover some of the major events before the protestant reformation and God willing as accurately as possible. In 1054 there was a split between the Roman Catholic Church and Eastern Orthodox Church. Their dispute was over the Papacy (which developed over time), changes in the Nicene Creed (Rome changed it) – and other things I wont cover here. I wont get into the creed here but simply put, Rome Changed theRead More →

2 Peter 3:9 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward [a]us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. I heard this verse come up several times in the past weeks. It was used in various discussions and sermons as proof that God desires that every person be saved but essentially isn’t able to until we accept His offer of salvation. Admittedly, it sounds that way and every time I heard it, it gave me pause. Does “all” mean every single human being in the world? Many Christians say withoutRead More →
