There are those who believe salvation can be lost or forfeited. Many believe they chose Christ, and because of that they received the gift of faith. God Says: I chose you. Man says: No. I chose you. It wouldn’t be fair or just unless this was so God. God says: Those who believe, believe according to My will and good pleasure. Man says: I believe because you looked down the corridors of time, saw that I would choose you, then based your election off of my will not yours. I’m in control God. Not you. God says: There is no savior besides me Man says:Read More →

It is with the utmost love, and respect that I write these blog posts that are in opposition to Roman Catholic teachings. It is my desire for my Roman Catholic friends and family to come to know the truth that their Churches teachings are not in alignment with scripture. I hope to demonstrate today that the Roman Catholic Mass contradicts scripture as it adds to the finished work of Christ the will of man, sacrifices and offerings of Mary, & the dead saints. The RC Mass only offers a partial forgiveness of some sins which is a direct contradiction of Hebrews 10. I pray theRead More →

Frederick the Pious at the Diet of Augsburg in reference to the Heidelberg Catechism “Your Imperial Majesty, I continue in the conviction which I made known to you before I came here in person, that in matters of faith and conscience I acknowledge only one Lord who is Lord of all lords, and King of all kings. That is why I say that this is not a matter of the flesh, but of man’s soul and its salvation which I have received from my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. His truth I am duty bound to guard. As regards Calvinism, I can say with GodRead More →

Heard this from a brother yesterday and grabbed my Catechism of the Catholic Church to confirm. And it is there CCC 841 states: “The Church’s relationship with the Muslims. “The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.” I would have accepted this at one point in my life before truly knowing who Jesus is and not having an understanding of the basics of Islam. Who is the creator? IsRead More →

A common objection people will make against the deity of Christ is “where in the Bible does Jesus specifically say He is God?”, or “Jesus is not God he was just a prophet” or “Jesus was a nice man, an example of good behavior, but not God.” It was a Jehovah’s Witness that first raised this objection and I admit at the time I didn’t have a good solid answer. Years later by God’s grace I’ve come to know that we can clearly demonstrate from God’s Word that Jesus not only declared His deity, His ultimate authority over all creation in heaven and on earth,Read More →

I was having a discussion with someone telling them how Jesus forgives all our sins, not just some, or only up until a certain point in our life, and once we are baptized by the Holy Spirit salvation cannot be lost. This objection was raised: “Yea, but what if a believer commits a murder?” This is good objection and one that is raised not just by non-believers but by believers as well. After all how could a professing Christian who murdered another human being in cold blood possibly be forgiven? Even if He/She went through their entire life devoted to Christ. When we look atRead More →

If we are going to go out and share the Gospel with others I believe it’s important to understand what other faiths believe in. This enables us to speak the truth in Love (Ephesians 4:15) because it shows respect to the other person who will see that you took the time to understand their point of view thus opening the door to give them the truth of the Gospel. Here is a summary of my understanding of the Jehovah Witness core beliefs based on my studies. Most of the information here is quoted and summarized from the articles, video, and the JW’s website which containsRead More →
