You Get Saved By Trusting Christ, Because You See Your Need As A Sinner (And That Is Repentance)

Mark 1:15, “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.”

It is tragic how the Devil has crept into tens of thousands of Baptist churches today, spreading the lie that God won't save anyone unless they first have a sincere desire “to turn away from sin.” No such teaching is found in the inspired King James Bible. What advocates of the heresies of Misunderstood Repentance and Lordship Salvation usually do is wrest (torture) obscure passages of Scripture to support their junk theology. Our text passage from Mark 1:15 is one such example. They wrongly ass-u-me, that the word repent means “to turn from sin,” but the Greek verb is actually, metanoeo, which means, “to think differently.”

The truth dear friend is that we get saved by trusting Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, and we trust Him because we see our need for redemption as a needy sinner, and this is repentance. Here is one of the best quotes that I've found on repentance, by Dr. Harry A. Ironside (1876-1951):
“Which comes first, repentance or faith? In Scripture we read, 'Repent ye, and believe the gospel.' Yet we find true believers exhorted to 'repent, and do the first works.' So intimately are the two related that you cannot have one without the other. The man who believes God repents; the repentant soul puts his trust in the Lord when the Gospel is revealed to him. Theologians may wrangle over this, but the fact is, no man repents until the Holy Spirit produces repentance in his soul through the truth. No man believes the Gospel and rests in it for his own salvation until he has judged himself as a needy sinner before God. And this is repentance.” (Except Ye Repent, p. 16) [emphasis added]
Amen! We don't give up our sins TO BE saved, we should give up our sins because WE ARE saved, and that requires time to grow in God's grace (1st Peter 2:2). Ephesians 2:10 says that believers are “created in Christ Jesus unto good works,” not by good works. I hope I have made the Bible clear enough dear reader. We are at war today with the Devil's religious crowd over the Bible. It is sad that so many pastors, including the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, have been tricked by Lucifer, into adding “turning away from your sin” to faith alone in the GOOD NEWS (Gospel) of Christ crucified on the cross, buried and bodily risen the third day (1st Corinthians 15:1-4).

Repentance is simply realizing your need for salvation, so that you will BELIEVE ON JESUS and be saved. No one has ever believed without repenting, but repentance is simply a change of mind (which happens automatically). The man who believes has repented, and the man who repents has believed. Any corrupt preacher who tries to separate repentance from faith, requiring that you turn away from your sin as a prerequisite to saving faith, is preaching another gospel. The Bible teaches that we repent TO believe, we don't repent AND believe. Repentance and faith are inseparable. 

The evidence that our faith is real is faith itself, and nothing else. When Dr. Steve Pettit (president of Bob Jones University) heretically says that your faith is not genuine, unless you turn away from your sin and faithfully run the Christian race until the end of life, you know that he has been inspired by demons! God bless you dear reader and thank you for reading my blogs.

Does 1st John 1:6 And John 3:21 Teach Lordship Salvation?

John 3:21, “But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” 1st John 1:5-7, “This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”

Does 1st John 1:6 teach Lordship Salvation? No, absolutely not! Someone recently asked me if John 3:21 is connected to 1st John 1:6, regarding THE TRUTH. Yes and no, depending on what you mean. The matter at hand is obeying THE TRUTH, not turning away from sins. I am so sick and tired of this junk theology that has infected most churches today, which teaches that you cannot go to Heaven unless you attempt to turn away from your sinful behavior. This is the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation.

The Bible teaches a free grace Gospel. You simply acknowledge that you are a guilty sinner in God's sight (Romans 3:19-23), and believe the GOOD NEWS (Gospel) to be saved. The subject of 1st John 1:6 is fellowship, not turning away from sins. One of my favorite preachers, Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold preached a helpful sermon on this subject called, "1st John Made Simple: Milk Vs. Meat.Also, here is some helpful Bible commentary from Pastor Max Younce on 1st John 1:6...
A few years ago I attended a Bible conference at a large Bible college in the South. One of the speakers spoke on the "so-called contradiction" in James 2:17. At the conclusion of his message he made this startling statement, "If you are really saved, you will live it! His other remarks along with this led all to believe that if you had sinned since being saved or were not really dedicated to Christ, you had better check to see if you were really saved. At the invitation thirty-five to forty college students came forward. It was later announced that they had come for REASSURANCE of their salvation.

It was a subtle way to get one to doubt God's faithfulness to His promise of everlasting life because of one's unfaithfulness to Him. This left no room for being in a backslidden condition and that chastening could result if one did not get back in fellowship with the Lord. In 1st John 1:9, 7 we are told "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness ... But if we walk in the light God's Word), as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin."

This was never brought out at all in his message. The sad thing was that dedication and coming forward was in intermingled with salvation. The next time any of these students should sin or not be 100% dedicated, they very likely will again doubt their salvation.

Since that message was not delivered in its proper context, one will never know the devastating effects it will have on some of these students in the future. The whole message was summed up in doubting one's salvation, instead of realizing the Christian's testimony will fall dead on the ears of the lost if our life does not incorporate good works.

In discussing 2nd Corinthians 5:17 which states "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature creation): old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." We should notice how this Verse is applied when used in inviting people to trust Christ at the invitation. It is usually emphasized that if one is willing to lay all on the altar, i.e., willing to confess and forsake all known sin, then Christ will accept the person and give them eternal life. This may seem like sound theology because God does want us to forsake our sin; but not as a condition to be saved. Then why would God want us to confess and forsake our sin if it is not to have eternal life? The answer is made perfectly from 1st John 1:6, "If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another..." When a Christian is living in sin his fellowship with God is broken. The way to restore that fellowship between Christ and the believer is set forth in Verse 9, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all righteousness." Now notice carefully, when we forsake, confess, and walk with Christ we have fellowship, not salvation and Sonship.

Some have tried to argue this by saying 1st John was written to lost people and not to Christians. The Word of God refutes this argument abruptly. Let us quote 1st John 5:13, "These things have written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God, that ye may know that ye have eternal life. . ." Who did John say he wrote these things unto? Christians, of course, "to you that believe."

I hope you begin to see how confusing the terminology of "laying all on the altar" becomes to a lost person. He is led to believe that confession and forsaking all sin is a requirement before God will accept him. The Bible says that "while I was a sinner Christ died for me" (Romans 5:8). He did not say, "When you forsake all your sin, Christ will die for you." We must remember that before a person is saved he is the natural man (Corinthians 2:14) and is not indwelt with the Holy Spirit which is the power that changes a person's life. The Holy Spirit is given to each person simultaneously with his faith in Christ and is not a result of confession, promises, or works. Paul had this same problem with the Galatians, "O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched (i.e. tricked or fooled) you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?" Then Paul asked them the question, "Received YE THE SPIRIT BY THE WORKS OF THE LAW, OR BY THE HEARING OF FAITH" (Galatians 3:1,2; Ephesians 1:13)

Let us present God's salvation, not man's. God's salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Can we not then trust the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to convict and provide the power to change a life, to that which will be pleasing unto God.

I emphasize the importance of the Gospel of John. We are told 85 times to believe, without any mention of turning away from sins to be saved. If anything more than believing (trusting, resting) in Christ were required for salvation, then the Lord would have said so. Jesus said what He meant, and meant what He said (John 14:2).

I encourage you to read carefully through these helpful quotes, discerning the difference between justification versus sanctification. The famous Pilgrim's Progress author and preacher John Bunyan (1628-1699) made this awesome true statement, showing how the Lordship Salvation crowd corrupt God's Word, and cast stumbling blocks before the people...
“If you do not put a difference between justification wrought by the man Christ without and sanctification wrought by the Spirit of Christ within, you are not able to divide the Word aright; but contrariwise, you corrupt the Word of God, and cast stumbling blocks before the people.” [emphasis added] —Evangelist John Bunyan
It is a very theologically dangerous thing to combine and confuse sanctification with justification. These are two entirely separate and different things. Here are a couple more beautiful quotes from John Bunyan. ...

The word “fellowship” in 1st John 1:6 simply means that the believer knows His Savior. Jesus knows His sheep, and they follow His voice. John 10:27-28, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” That doesn't mean that a believer always obeys Christ. That doesn't mean that a believer won't sometimes choose to live in gross immorality and rebellion against the Word of God. It simply means that the true believer has the indwelling Holy Spirit (1st John 3:24; Romans 8:9), which God has given to every saint to seal us until the day of redemption (Ephesians 1:12-14).

Beware and run from anyone who teaches that you must repent of your sins to be saved. There is no such teaching in the inspired King James Bible. Many of the Devil's corrupt modern revisions pervert the Scriptures to say all kinds of garbage, but you cannot show me one verse from the King James Bible that says to “turn away from your sin” to be saved. Eternal life is a free gift from God (Romans 5:15-18). A gift cannot be earned. Salvation is received, not achieved. Salvation is a take proposition, not a give proposition. You take it by faith, and give nothing in return. That is a free grace Gospel. 

The curse of Lordship Salvation ADDS to the Gospel, saying that MORE is required—teaching that in addition you must turn away from your sins, faithfully run the race until the finish, surrender your will to fully obey God, follow Jesus no matter what the cost, and receive Christ as “Lord” (Boss) of your life to be saved. None of that is the free grace Gospel (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). Satan has crept tares into most churches today, while the the churches slept. Sadly, you'll find far more tares than wheat in most Baptist churches today.

You'll often here false teachers like Jack Chick, Marty Herron, Bob Jones University, Charles Phelps, Paul Washer, Ray Comfort and John MacArthur misinterpreting Luke 13:5 to support their heresy of Lordship Salvation. Luke 13:5, “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” Nothing in this verse indicates turning away from sins to be saved. The Greek word for “repent” here is the verb metanoeo, which simply means “to think differently.” Repentance is “toward God” (Acts 20:21), not from sin. Repentance means to think differently concerning acknowledgment of THE TRUTH (2nd Timothy 2:25). You are a dirty, guilty and needy sinner, and so am I. I received Jesus as my personal Savior in 1980 at age 13. I was born-again forever. I accepted Christ and that was it, a done deal.

Anybody (like false teacher Steve Pettit, president of Bob Jones University) who says you cannot accept Christ and that's it, is a liar. The Bible colleges and churches are filled with theological LIARS today, evil men who damn the souls of millions of people to the Lake of Fire, with their Satanic falsehood of Lordship Salvation. Who will you believe, the King James Bible or all the Devil's modern Bible perversions and these lying false prophets? Choose ye this day whom ye will believe, God's Word or the Devil's religious crowd.

God's Righteousness Is The Only Way Into Heaven

Matthew 5:17-20, Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Oh how precious is this truth! I desire in my heart of hearts for you dear friend to fully grasp this simple truth. The Bible says that very few people are going to Heaven. Matthew 7:13-15, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Jesus warned that few people are going to Heaven (cf., Luke 13:23-24).

It is no coincidence that verse 15 warns us about FALSE PROPHETS (wolves that appear to us in sheep's clothing). This Scripture has profound meaning. A lamb is a harmless animal, completely defenseless and no threat. The Bible teaches that this is how deadly false prophets, who can kill us. Cunning deadly wolves are a major threat, but they usually appear in such a deceptive way that people fail to see any threat! Instead, they see ministers of righteousness (2nd Corinthians 11:13-15). 

What did Jesus mean in Matthew 5:17-20, For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.The Pharisees were devoutly religious men. They knew the content of the Scripture well. Yet they didn't obey it. The Jews in the Wilderness heard Moses preach the truth of the Gospel for 40 years, but they didn't believe any of it. They could have recited the Gospel to you word-for-word, but it did not profit them, because they had no faith (Hebrews 4:2). Likewise, the religious Pharisees knew the Scripture, but they didn't obey it. The Pharisees lacked faith, with a few exceptions, like Nicodemus.

When the unbelieving Pharisees saw Jesus eating with a bunch of sinners, they unjustly criticized Him. Mark 2:17, “When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” So many foolish Bible students and corrupt pastors ASS-U-ME that the word repentance here means to turn away from sin. But the Bible doesn't say that! Jesus was simply saying that He cannot save those who are self-righteous, thinking that they have no need of being saved. Open sinners see their desperate condition, guilt and need for redemption. That was the main purpose for which the Old Testament law was given by God, to give all men THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN (Romans 3:19-20). Jesus saves SINNERS, no one else. What saith the Scripture? “CHRIST DIED FOR THE UNGODLY” (Romans 5:6-9). 

Ladies and gentlemen, neither you nor I have any righteousness. Isaiah 64:6, “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.Your very best is filth to God. This is why the Apostle James said in James 2:10, “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. Committing even one sin keeps us out of Heaven. That is what the Bible means in 1st Corinthians 6:9-10. Ah, but 1st Corinthians 6:11b wonderfully says, “BUT YE ARE WASHED.” I sure hope you are getting this truth my friend. If you understand that we are saved solely by GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS, it will open up your understanding to the Entire Scriptures, like a master key!

In sharp contrast to the Word of God, please watch this heretical video of what Pastor John Piper preaches. Folks, this video is evil to the core, totally unscriptural...

Pastor John Piper's Damnable Counterfeit Plan of Salvation

I love this truth by Pastor Yankee Arnold:

“If you have to look at your life to prove that you are saved, it proves that you're not!” —Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold, “Why Lordship Salvation is WRONG!

Here is a great truth from Pastor Martin R. DeHaan (1891-1965):

“There is a vast difference between coming to Jesus for salvation and coming after Jesus for service. Coming to Christ makes one a believer, while coming after Christ makes one a disciple. All believers are not disciples. To become a believer one accepts the invitation of the Gospel, to be a disciple one obeys the challenge to a life of dedicated service and separation. Salvation comes through the sacrifice of Christ; discipleship comes only by sacrifice of self and surrender to His call for devoted service. Salvation is free, but discipleship involves paying the price of a separated walk. Salvation can't be lost because it depends upon God's faithfulness, but discipleship can be lost because it depends upon our faithfulness.” —Pastor  M.R. DeHaan, “Hebrews”; Zondervan Publishing House, 1959 (p. 117)

Amen and amen! Dear friend, we are saved only by GOD'S RIGHTEOSUNESS. That is why we read in Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Philippians 3:9, “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That is so simple! 

You know, I've heard all my life that the best way to spot counterfeit money is by handling real money, so that you are familiar with it. That is exactly why I can spot a counterfeit Bible right away, I have only been using the inspired King James Bible my entire Christian life since I was saved at age 13. That was 41 years ago! 

I feel sorry for this younger generation, who have to choose between hundreds of English Bible versions. When I attended the shameful Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, I went to a Watchcare Meeting at one of their deacon's homes. He had literally seven different Bible versions on his book shelf. These knuckleheads at Harvest are wicked men. They think that because hundreds of church members and parents support their work that they are right, but the Bible warns against such arrogance. Proverbs 14:1, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Proverbs 16:5, “Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.” Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.” 

The Bob Jones University crowd today are of the Devil, preaching a false gospel of turning from sin to be saved. Galatians 3:1-3, “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?Biblical salvation comes by simple childlike faith in the Good News (Gospel) of Christ crucified, buried and risen the third day (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). All this junk theology about repenting of one's sinful ways, running and finishing the race, surrendering all to Christ as Lord, paying the price and exchanging one's life for Jesus' life is of the Devil, nowhere taught in the inspired King James Bible!

These devils ALL superficially claim that salvation is solely by God's free grace, which at the same time perverting what faith means, and requiring MORE than faith to know that you are saved. Dear reader, consider that even the Satanic Roman Catholic Vatican's official dogma teaches that salvation is by God's grace. Hellbound Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Seventh-Day Adventists and Church of Christ, to name but a few religious cults, will ALL tell you that salvation is by God's grace too! But then they ADD MORE, corrupting the Gospel (Acts 15:1, 24; Ephesians 2:8-9). 

Even the Devil will tell you a half-truth, to deceive you. That is how the serpent tricked Eve (Genesis 3:1). The serpent told a couple half-lies. It is true that God did give Adam and Eve instructions concerning the Tree of Knowledge. But the serpent lied about what God said to Adam in Genesis 2:16-17. God never said they couldn't eat of “any” of the trees. Satan added that part. God in fact said that they could eat of any tree, except one. 

It is also true that Eve did become as “a god, gaining the power to decide between good and evil for herself. But the serpent never mentioned that making Eve's own decisions would result in dire consequences, even death (Romans 5:12). The serpent didn't mention the pain of childbearing, the curse brought with sin, the murder of her son by his elder brother, the miseries of having the freedom to make one's own choices independent of God, et cetera. Eve was conned! The serpent was the first shady used car salesman, the best con artist in history!

Matthew 5:20, For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.What saith the Scripture? Romans 10:3-4, For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” Do you see friend how we keep reading in the Bible about “GOD'S RIGHTEOSUNESS”? That is what salvation is all about—excepting Christ's sacrifice on the cross as complete payment for our sins.

I get upset when I hear false teachers like Dr. Steve Pettit (long time theologically incompetent president of Bob Jones University) preaching a perverse gospel of partial faith in Christ plus works. Someone needs to care! Someone needs to be alarmed and take a stand for the faith once delivered unto the saints (Jude 1:3). Steve Pettit is an infidel, an unbeliever. Pettit adheres to the same gross theology of Lordship Salvation as did Miss Ellen G. White (the revered prophetess of the accursed Seventh-Day Adventist cult). 

God knows my humble heart. I do not mean to be unkind. I care about your soul dear friend. I don't want you to spend eternity burning in the fires of Hell. Death often comes unexpectedly for all of us. I just read this week about a horrible head-on-collision in San Diego, California. A woman had just come from her dialysis treatment and turned into oncoming highway traffic. She collided with a young couple of police detectives in their 20's, who had just got married. The woman who made the innocent error, and the young male and female doing nothing wrong, were killed instantly. You can see the wreckage on YouTube. ...

An Innocent Error Led To Multiple Deaths!

I cannot plead with you enough NOT to follow religious men! What did Jesus tell us to do? John 5:39-40, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.The Bob Jones crowd are arrogant in their error, driving the WRONG WAY into oncoming traffic, barreling down the highway to Hell, driving their unlicensed vehicle of Lordship Salvation!

The Apostle Paul NEVER once told us to “repent of your sin” to be saved! Paul NEVER said to “surrender all” to Jesus as the absolute Lord and Master of our life, forsaking the old ways for good, committing our life to serve God. NO, Paul didn't teach that garbage to be saved. What did Paul teach? 1st Thessalonians 4:14, “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. Isn't that so simple? That is the blessed Gospel. All you have to do to go to Heaven is come to God as a guilty sinner, realizing your need for salvation, and BELIEVE the Good News that Jesus died on the cross in your place to pay your debt of sin. He was buried and three days later Jesus miraculously raised up from the dead physically. And THAT IS IT! (John 6:28-29).

I love what Paul said in Galatians 3:1-3, O foolish Galatians (Bob Jones University and Harvest Baptist Church on Guam), who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth (the Gospel), before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?I love that wonderful phrase...THE HEARING OF FAITH. That is how 3,000 people got saved on the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2:41, “Then they that gladly received his word (Peter's Gospel message) were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.” Those dear folks just heard Peter preach the Gospel, and they gladly received it. That is what Paul meant in Galatians 3:2b by THE HEARING OF FAITH.You get saved when you believe the Gospel as you hear it. Isn't that so simple? Sure it is, the way God intended for salvation to be.

So the next time you hear a false teacher like Gary Walton, Marty Herron, Steve, Pettit, Chuck Phelps or John MacArthur COMPLICATING God's simple plan of salvation, RUN away from them! Mark (identify) and avoid them (Romans 16:17-18). Expose them (Titus 1:10-13). The Bible says that we are saved solely by GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS, which is by faith in Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:9; Romans 10:3-4; Galatians 3:24-26). JESUS PAID IT ALL! ...

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

Lordship Salvation is a foundation of sand. Misunderstood repentance (i.e., turning from sin to be saved) is a foundation of sand. These modern corrupt Devil's Bibles will instruct you how to build a house upon the sand! Dear friend, you need JESUS CHRIST, the only true foundation (1st Corinthians 3:11). We find the will of God the Father concerning salvation in John 6:40, “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. Please pay attention to what Jesus said! The dear Savior didn't say anything about running the race as Steve Pettit preaches. The Savior didn't bid Godspeed to such wicked evildoers as does Pastor Gary Walton at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam to Steve Pettit and John MacArthur! Jesus said the Father's will to get to Heaven is to BELIEVE ON HIM!

Some people directly asked Jesus what works God requires to be saved. The Savior gave them the simple answer in John 6:28-29, Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. Dear friend, over and over and over the Bible plainly teaches us to simply BELIEVE ON HIM to be saved. 

So where in the world did Ray Comfort come up with the false claim that God requires a person to LIVE A LIFESTYLE of turning away from sinful behavior to get to Heaven? Harvest Baptist Church on Guam bids Godspeed to these devils in the pulpit! Steve Pettit is friends with John MacArthur, sanctioning his doctrines of devils. Folks, none of what these wicked infidels preach is THE GOSPEL, as I have just plainly shown you. We need to get mad (Make A Difference). I have been wearied lately, lonely without a church family, all because Harvest Baptist Church on Guam has done evil against me, ostracizing me since 2014 for telling THE TRUTH (the very truths that I have shared with you in this important blog).

Sadly, very few (and I mean very, very few) pastors care about what I am saying. Your average fundamentalist church and pastor today shamefully don't want to suffer reproach for the name of Christ (2nd Timothy 3:13). They refuse to fight, withstand and take a stand (Ephesians 6:11-13). They don't want to be put outside the gate with Jesus. Shameful pastors like Chuck Phelps, Jared Baldwin, Joe Hansen, Marty Herron, Gary Walton, and thousands more infidels like them, are all pulling on the same rope as the Devil, perverting the grace of God. I am telling THE TRUTH, faithfully, as a Christian and preacher should (Jude 1:3).

How Far Can A Believer Fall Into Sin?

2nd Timothy 2:19, “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”

No one "falls" into any sin, we all choose to do right or wrong. Proverbs 4:23, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” A believer can sink to the lowest level of sin. Proverbs 14:14, “The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.”

Romans 5:20 teaches that “where sin abounded, GRACE DID MUCH MORE ABOUND.” So the believer is safe in Christ, regardless of sinful choices, but 2nd Corinthians 5:10-11 warns that every believer will be held accountable at the Judgment Seat Of Christ for the good and bad done in the body. Choosing to sin is always wrong. ...

“Christians can never sin cheaply; they pay a heavy price for iniquity. Transgression destroys peace of mind, obscures fellowship with Jesus, hinders prayer, brings darkness over the soul; therefore be not the serf and bondman of sin.” ―Pastor Charles H. Spurgeon, 'Morning And Evening: Daily Readings'

John 3:3-7, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.”

One of the biggest phonies in the entertainment industry and corrupt churches today is singer Toby Mac (real name: Toby McKeehan). In this pathetic video testimony, Toby Mac merely says that he made Jesus the Lord of his life by “asking Jesus into my life. Dear reader, that is NOT the Gospel, not even in the ballpark. All you have to do is search the internet for Toby Mac Christian testimony” and a couple YouTube videos come up, which are as lame and empty of any real Gospel testimony as can be. The Devil is a beautiful liar!

As the churches are becoming more worldly, so also is the world becoming more churchy. There is nothing even remotely Christian about anything Toby Mac is promoting. Toby's video are all about glorifying Toby, not Jesus Christ. The San Diego Gay And Lesbian Transgendered organization openly supports and promotes Toby Mac's worldly music. These are sick and twisted times in which we live. The prophet Isaiah warned thousands of years ago against calling good evil, and evil good. Isaiah 5:20, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Like it or not dear friend, homosexuality is a sin (Leviticus 20:13; Romans 1:24-32; Jude 1:7). Satan identifies Satan as the god of this wicked world (2nd Corinthians 4:4; 1st John 5:19). 

Any church or Christian that gives Toby Mac their stamp of approval is not right with God. The San Diego LGBT Pride organization uses Toby Mac's worldly song: 'Feel It ft. Mr. Talk Box' as their theme song, which contains the lyrics: “You take our brokenness and make us beautiful.” Homosexuals are perverting the Holy Bible to justify their wickedness, claiming that God's love is inclusive of all people, no matter how sinful and rebellious they are.

Numerous Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) singers have come out as open homosexuals. One example is Trey Pearson. Another example is Vicky Beeching, who blaspheme God by claiming that He supports their wickedness:

In Charisma News, Vicky Beeching opened up about many things, including coming out and what she's doing after coming out. Despite her sexual orientation, she believes God will love her just the way she is. This is confirmed in a statement when she said the following: 
"What Jesus taught was a radical message of welcome and inclusion and love. I feel certain God loves me just the way I am, and I have a huge sense of calling to communicate that to young people."
Over the last ten years, Vicky Beeching has recorded worship songs which include "The Wonder on the Cross," "Glory to God Forever," and as shown above, "Above All Else." She's also a staple in mega churches and music festivals. Though it is recent, her coming out shouldn't be a surprise because she did test the LGBT lifestyle. Back in April, she attended an event supporting gay marriage. She soon followed up with a post on her blog about LGBT theology. Now she's using theological training to change church views on gays and lesbians: 
"It takes work to assess the historical context of verses—like when Paul said 'women should be silent in church.' When we look at their historical context, and assess the original language they were written in, some of these verses they make sense in a completely different way than they do from a first scan."
To all the Christ followers (and everyone else, actually), we want to know your opinions of Vicky Beeching's revelation. Are you like her and believe that God loves and accepts everyone despite their sexual orientation or is she missing vital knowledge from the Holy Bible that still shows homosexuality, as well as her views of Jesus' love, is not necessarily wrong, but incomplete?

Let me repeat something that Vicky Beeching said, which is blasphemy against a holy God:

"What Jesus taught was a radical message of welcome and inclusion and love. I feel certain God loves me just the way I am, and I have a huge sense of calling to communicate that to young people."

Is that really what Jesus said? John 7:7, “The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.” The Bible says that Jesus testifies against the world, because of the world's SINS! That is why the sinful world HATES JESUS! Pastor Steven Anderson has been banned in several dozen countries because of his uncompromising preaching against the sin of homosexuality. I do not agree with everything Pastor Anderson does or says, but he is correct that God hates sin! Jesus testifies against the world because of our wickedness! 

One big thing that I disagree with Pastor Anderson on is that he says God hates homosexuals. That is very WRONG! God loves everybody unconditionally. However, God does NOT accept everybody. Vicky Beeching is half right. The Devil knows that the most effective deception is the HALF-TRUTH, because in part it can be defended with incontestable logic. It is true that God loves everybody as they are. Vicky is right about that. But she is confused and very wrong that God accepts everybody as they are. Proverbs 18:5, “It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment.”

Jeremiah 7:8-10, “Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit. Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not; And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations?”

The Israelites in the Old Testament were committing awful sins, claiming that they were doing God's will. That is exactly what Vicky Beeching is doing. That is why wicked people are continually changing and corrupting the Holy Bible. All of the modern Devil's Bible revisions completely remove the word “sodomite.” They changed it to “male temple prostitute.” That is the Devil's clever way to distance the modern Bible revisions from the sin of homosexuality. In case you don't know, homosexuality is not just another sin, it is THE END TIMES SIN that is preparing the world to receive the coming Antichrist

Homosexuality is the lowest form of depravity to which a society can sink. I say that in love, but truthfully on the authority of God's Word. Dear friend, there are many battles going on in the world right now between good and evil, but the war has already been won. When the blessed Savior died on the cross to pay for our sins, was buried, and then miraculously raised up three days later, THE VICTORY WAS WON! Every born-again believer is already on the winning side in Jesus Christ!!!

Where did Jesus testify against the world? Friend, Jesus is the Living Word of God (John 1:1-3, 14; Revelation 19:13). The Bible is the Written Word of God (Matthew 4:4; John 17:17; Proverbs 30:5-6). That is why Jesus commanded in John 5:39, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.”

Toby Mac has a net worth of $10,000,000, but he is a very poor man spiritually. I do not believe that Toby McKeehan (born 1964) is saved. I do not think he is saved because I've never heard him give a clear Gospel testimony. All I've heard is Toby saying he made Jesus his Lord, or that he asked Jesus into his life. Well, Judas was a part of Jesus' life, but he went to Hell in his sins forever. You cannot be saved by becoming a Christ follower! You cannot get to Heaven by joining a church, getting water baptized, nor by living the Christian life. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN (John 3:3-7). Toby never mentions his sins for which Christ died. I've never heard him mention the cross. Toby uses a lot of religious lingo in his song lyrics, but his message is shallow and vague at best. Toby's millions of fans are shallow and worldly. 

Many religious parents think that Toby' funky rap music is a good alternative to the Devil's music. I would have to agree from what I've heard from the vile gang, prison and drug culture which underlies the world's secular music. However, neither would be good choices. Sometimes our choices aren't between good and bad, but between good or best. Toby's music is not the best option in my humble opinion as a Christian. 

But the purpose of my article is not to address Toby's music style. I published this blog article to address Toby's fake Christian testimony. I went to visit his website. There's NOTHING on his website about how to get to Heaven. Why wouldn't a professed Christian, who influences tens of millions of young people, not want to share the Gospel with them? Something is very wrong with a professed Christian singer who is popular with the homosexual community. Job 20:5, “That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?” These are perilous times in which we live (2nd Timothy 3:1-7). 

People are confused. The Devil wants to confuse everybody, especially young people. That is why the Devil has used to love of money to inspired wicked men to publish hundreds of English Bible revisions, to confuse the churches (and they are very confused). Satan is behind today's insane gender-bending and cancel culture in the United States. Things couldn't get much crazier! If the Lord tarries His return in the decades to come, we will see children undergoing reassignment surgery, ordered by the wicked courts against their parent's consent. 

I thank God for the God-fearing families we still have in Florida, Texas and Tennessee today. I heard 'The World According to Briggs' YouTube channel recently. He made a video of 'The Top Ten Reasons Not To Move To Tennessee.' Unbelievably, one of his ridiculous reasons not to move to the state of Tennessee is that they refuse to teach the blatant fraud of evolution in the schools. Buddy, I want to live in Tennessee! It's refreshing to know that some people still have some Horsesense! Evolution is the biggest fraud ever fabricated by the Devil. I lost a bunch of confidence in “Briggs” when I heard him making a fool of himself. Brigg's actually thinks Tennesseans are backwards because they refuse to go along with the blatant fraud of evolutionary 'THEORY' (it still hasn't even begun to be verified). What does that say about Briggs? It says that he ain't very smart. Only a fool speaks of evolution as a fact, because it ain't so!

Dear friend, I didn't write this blog to attack Toby Mac. I am not that kind of person. I love everybody. Toby has some great music. I am a musician myself, so I know good music when I hear it. Toby has great timing and some catchy songs. Albeit, where will he spend eternity? Making Jesus your Lord is not the new birth. Asking Jesus into your life does not produce regeneration! The only way to be saved is by faith alone. I dare you to watch Toby Mac's YouTube video testimonies and try to find him speak of faith. I couldn't find it. If you think I am wrong, then please send me a clear public Gospel profession from him. All I see is a man who is preying upon churches to make filthy lucre. He seems nervous when giving his testimony, like he doesn't really have one and is winging it. If you disagree, prove me wrong! Thank you for reading my blog articles and kindest regards.

Blessed Are The Persecuted, But Not False Teachers!

Matthew 5:10-12, Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. Titus 1:10-14, “For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

Der reader, the Bible promises that God will bless any believer who is persecuted for Christ's sake. But please notice carefully the phrase, “and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely.” If people criticize, expose and speak evil against you TRUTHFULLY, then there is no blessing for being persecuted. All of my life I have heard wicked people (heathen and religious alike) twist the Bible around to justify all manner of evil, falsehoods and heresy. Every false Christian religion (e.g., Mormons, Roman Catholics, Orthodox Catholics, Jehovah's Witnesses, Seventh-Day Adventists, Lutherans and Church of Christ, to name but a few), wrest (torture) the Holy Bible in an attempt to sinful justify their false religion (2nd Peter 3:16-17). 

The truth ladies and gentlemen is that a born-again child of God sees the Holy Bible very differently than the unregenerate (or unsaved) person does. 

For example: To the unsaved man who does not have the indwelling Holy Spirit to guide them (John 16:13), it doesn't make sense that one God would be divided into three separate persons. In his excellent book, 'Kingdom Of The Cults' by Dr. Walter Martin (1928-1989), he teaches how the Jehovah's Witness' religious cult lean strongly upon human reasoning to deceive their victims. Regarding the great Bible doctrine of the Godhead (i.e., Trinity), which JW's deny, the group appeal to secular human rational, arguing that it doesn't make sense for God to divide Himself into three different beings. To the natural (or unsaved) man this makes sense because he cannot discern spiritual things (1st Corinthians 2:14-16).

“Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.” —George Bernard Shaw

Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) wisely said: The man with no hope is better off than the man with a false hope, because the man with no hope is still searching for answers. This is so very true. That is why we read in the Old Testament in Proverbs 26:12, “Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit?  there is more hope of a fool than of him.” A fool is one step with from getting right with God, but the conceited man is two steps away, because he first has to admit that he is wrong! A conceited person first needs to realize the error of their ways. That is why I have often said that the hardest part about getting people saved is first getting them lost! It is easy to lead someone to Christ once they realize that they're a guilty sinner on their way to be punished in the fires of Hell forever! It is the self-righteous religious person that is hard to win to Christ! Jesus said that Himself in Matthew 9:12, “But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.”

“One great power of sin is that it blinds men so that they do not recognize its true character.” —Pastor Andrew Murray (1828-1917)

Heresy has crept into hundreds of thousands of churches today. Heresy is sin. To preach false doctrine is evil. To bid Godspeed to those who preach false doctrine is evil. 2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” Harvest Baptist Church on Guam has much blood on their hands, for bidding Godspeed to Bob Jones University and their Lordship Salvation heresy. Harvest bids Godspeed to John MacArthur and BJU president, Dr. Steve Pettit! These people are dangerous spiritual false teachers!!!

“Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.” —George Bernard Shaw

Please watch the excellent sermon: 'Why Lordship Faith Misses The Mark For Salvation' (by Pastor Charles Bing). Pastor Bing is absolutely right, exposing John MacArthur and the heretical Lordship Salvation crowd!!! Roman Catholics errantly teach that salvation is by FAITH PLUS WORKS. Proponents of Lordship Salvation errantly teach that salvation is by a FAITH THAT WORKS. Faith is opposed to works for salvation, and cannot be mixed just as oil and water cannot be mixed together! The inspired King James Bible teaches that salvation is by FAITH WITHOUT WORKS. ...

Romans 4:4-7, “Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.”

 Kindly said, Bob Jones University and their alumni are bold faced theological liars! They have perverted God's saving grace—attacking the God of grace, the gift of grace (which is eternal life by faith alone), the guardian of grace (which is the local New Testament church), and the goal of grace (which is to preach the Gospel to all the world). Lordship Salvation and Misunderstood Repentance are perversions of God's free grace, which cannot produce the new birth by the Spirit of Christ. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN (John 3:7). 

“God is worthy of our trust; He is always faithful. Our nearest friends may deceive us, but God never will.” —Pastor Dwight L. Moody (1837-1899)

The biggest mistake you will ever make dear friend is to trust some lying pastor...

Romans 3:4,  “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.”

So how do you play it safe? Simply, test everything by the inspired Word of God. First, make sure you have the right Bible. If you have a corrupt Bible, you cannot get saved. The only inspired Words of God today in the English language are found in the KING JAMES BIBLE.

Dear reader, God is not blessing you, nor your Bible college, nor your pastor, nor your church, if you are being persecuted (exposed) for being involved in a religious cult that preaches another Jesus, another gospel, and with another spirit that is not the Holy Spirit. Lordship Salvation is of a demonic spirit. Bob Jones University and the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam foolishly think they are being persecuted by me, but I am EXPOSING THEM as a faithful Bible preacher! 

I can back up all my preaching with the inspired King James Bible!!! They cannot back up their false understanding of repentance, nor their heresy of Lordship Salvation! The lie that a person must “repent and turn away from their sin” to be saved is of a demonic spirit. The fact of the matter is that (unless you have one of the Devil's corrupt modern Bible PERversions), you cannot show me any place in the Bible that teaches to “repent of sin or turn away from sin to be born-again. We simply need to acknowledge our SINNERSHIP and BELIEVE THE GOSPEL (Romans 3:19-20; Acts 2:41; 1st Thessalonians 4:14; 1st Corinthians 1:21; 1st Corinthians 15:1-4).

The Battle Of The Ages (a 4:19 film I humbly made)

Here are some tremendous Bible studies by Dr. Max D. Younce...

The Unpardonable Sin

Matthew 12:22-24 and 31-32, “Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw. And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David? But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. ...Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.”

In our text passage above we see that Jesus cast a devil out of an afflicted man. We don't know if the demon possession caused the man's blindness and inability to speak. But we do know that Jesus had mercy and miraculously healed this afflicted man! In response the wicked Pharisees accused Jesus of having a devil Himself. The Lord rebuked the wicked Pharisees for their unbelief, teaching them that God will not forgive anyone who blasphemes the Holy Spirit. What did Jesus mean? I found this helpful quote from Russell McKinney:
Let me close with an illustration that I trust will help. Let’s say that you have a life-threatening disease, but your doctor knows about a cure and tries repeatedly to tell you about it. But, for whatever reason, you refuse to hear his words. When he walks in to see you, you get up and leave. When he calls on the phone, you hang up. When he sends you a letter, you throw it away without opening it. When he sends you an email or a text, you immediately delete it. And so what happens? Well, finally, after his best efforts have been repeatedly rebuffed, the doctor says, “Alright, if you want to die, go ahead because I’m through trying to help you.” And so you die. But what killed you? Was it the disease? Yes, in a sense. But in another sense it was your refusal to heed the doctor who was trying to point you to the cure, to say nothing, of course, of your lack of the cure. Now let’s put it all together. Your fatal disease is sin. The doctor who is trying to help you is God the Holy Spirit, and the cure He is trying to get you to take advantage of is Jesus Christ. Now do you understand? That is how one commits the unpardonable sin today. SOURCE: The Unpardonable Sin
I love that illustration! Dear friend, so many believers needlessly worrying about this matter of The Unpardonable Sin. I assure you on the authority of God's inspired Word that if you are already saved, it is IMPOSSIBLE for you to commit ANY SIN that is unpardonable. That is because all of our sins have ALREADY been pardoned by the sin-cleansing blood of Jesus. What saith the Scripture? ...
1st Corinthians 6:9-11, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
The very moment that we trusted Jesus dear friend, WE WERE WASHED in the blood of Jesus!!! All our sins (past, present and future) were GONE, GONE, GONE, GONE! Yes, my sins are all gone!!! Here again are some excellent quotes from Evangelist Russell McKinney:
Some students of the Bible contend that the sin of which Christ spoke (the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit) cannot be committed today because it specifically involved attributing an obvious miracle of Jesus to the power of Satan. According to this view, since Jesus is no longer personally on the earth working miracles today, the “unpardonable sin” no longer comes into play. As Dr. Harry Ironside wrote,
“The unpardonable sin of Israel at Christ’s first coming was the rejection of the Spirit’s witness to His Messiahship.”
However, with that said, I agree with Dr. J. Vernon McGee who wrote:
“The Holy Spirit came into the world to make real the salvation of Christ to the hearts of men. If you resist the working of the Spirit of God when He speaks to you, my friend, there is no forgiveness, of course.”
Along the same lines, the previously mentioned Dr. Ironside also wrote:
“…if they speak against the Holy Spirit, that is, in the sense, of course, of utterly rejecting His testimony, then there can be no forgiveness, for it is only through the Spirit’s testimony that the Son of Man is made known.”
You see, to rightly understand this whole subject, it is vital that we understand the role that God the Holy Spirit plays in salvation. First, the Spirit convicts the lost sinner concerning the sinner’s sin (John 16:8). Second, He (the Spirit is not an “it”) strives with the sinner over the sinner’s need for forgiveness and salvation (Genesis 6:3). Third, He works to convince the sinner of the sinner’s need to believe in Jesus Christ as Savior (John 15:26, 16:14). Fourth, at the moment the sinner chooses to believe in Christ as Savior, the Spirit comes to indwell the sinner’s body (Romans 8:9-11, 1 Corinthians 6:19, Titus 3:5). It is this indwelling of God the Holy Spirit that creates the “born again” experience in the person (John 3:1-8).

But what if a lost sinner time and time again refuses the Holy Spirit’s convicting, striving, and convincing? Well, that is where the issue of blaspheming the Holy Spirit comes into play, and at some point the Holy Spirit will simply stop working on that lost sinner. And it is then that the lost sinner will have committed the unpardonable sin. I think that Dr. John R. Rice described the potential situation perfectly when he wrote:
“The unpardonable sin is a complete and final rejection of Christ so definite and blasphemous that it insults and drives away the Holy Spirit forever. Then He no longer moves the heart, brings conviction or arouses desire for salvation.”
My friend, only an unsaved person can commit the unpardonable sin, by resisting the conviction of the Holy Spirit that they need to get saved. The Apostle Paul put it this way in Galatians 5:4, “Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
 Whether it be trusting in false religion to get someone to Heaven, or blatant flat out rejection of the Savior, anyone who rejects God's free gift of eternal life by faith alone in Jesus Christ has FALLEN FROM GRACE! That is, they have missed the only bus going to Heaven! 

And may I confidently say, the Christian believers can only fall IN GRACE, but never FROM GRACE. God's grace prevents every born-again child of God from ever losing God's salvation. Acts 13:39, “And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.The moment you got saved dear saint, you were JUSTIFIED FROM ALL THINGS (just-if-I'd never sinned at all).

In God's divine courtroom, every believer has been declared legally JUSTIFIED. It is a legal matter. We are not merely acquitted (i.e., not convicted, but not declared innocent either). Salvation is not a plea agreement (i.e., pleading guilty to a lesser charge to avoid more severe prosecution). Salvation is being 100% declared innocent! But wait, there's more! Not only does God declare the believer justified from all things, but God also credits all of His righteousness to us. Think about that! What saith the Scripture? ...
Romans 4:3-6, “For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
God imputes (credits) Christ's righteousness to us without works. 

Dear friend, I cannot warn you enough about the toxic danger of the Devil's modern Bible revisions. Here for example is Romans 4:6 in the Easy-To-Read Version (ERV), “David said the same thing when he was talking about the blessing people have when God accepts them as good without looking at what they have done:” The inspired King James Bible says something very different! The King James Bible says that God imputes righteousness to the believer without works. But the ERV says God merely accept them as good!

Friend, there is a BIG DIFFERENCE between God accepting someone as being good, versus imputing His righteousness to them! When you got saved, God didn't “accept you as good,” He made you Good, by crediting His goodness to your filthy sinful record. 2nd Corinthians 5:21, “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” GOD MADE YOU AND ME RIGHTEOUS BY FAITH!!! God didn't merely accept us “as good. Philippians 3:9, “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:” It is GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS dear friend, and not merely God accepting you as good. Do you see the big theological difference between the trustworthy King James Bible, and the Devil's modern Bibles? I sure do.

Once you have been redeemed dear saint, you can NEVER lose God's promise of salvation. If saved, always saved. Once saved, always saved. Eternal life is eternal security!!!

Why Is Lordship Salvation Becoming So Popular?

1st Corinthians 5:6, “Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? 2nd Corinthians 11:3-4, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.” Galatians 5:9, “A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

I am greatly concerned about the churches today. All across America churches are being infiltrated and corrupted by the Devil's lies of misunderstood repentance and Lordship Salvation. These are two separate, but often related, false teachings today. Pastor Jack Hyles does an excellent job exposing the heresies of: Misunderstood Repentance and Lordship Salvation. These two doctrines of devils hinder people from getting born-again, which means they will go to Hell someday. Jesus plainly warned everyone in John 3:3b, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.There are no exceptions to this rule!

The word “fear” in 2nd Corinthians 11:3 is the Greek word phobeo, from which we get our English word phobia, which means “to be alarmed.” The reason why these deadly heresies have crept unawares into tens of thousands of churches is because preachers are no longer standing today! Preachers have become weak, tolerant of falsehoods, lackadaisical in their preaching duties and indifferent toward evil. Hardly anyone cares anymore! 

The name of the game nowadays is money. Missionaries need their paychecks, so they stay quiet and don't stand. Pastors need their parsonage and paychecks, so they don't want to invite anything controversial into their churches. I heard a pathetic weakling for a pastor on Guam, Sean Quinlan, of the Lighthouse Baptist Church on Guam, say those very word to his congregation in 2018: “THERE WILL BE NO CONTROVERSIES IN THIS CHURCH! That were his foolish words. Of course, that was his way of trying to silence me. You can't silence me friend!!! Mr. Quinlan is from Pensacola Christian College (PCC). PCC is all about the money, refusing to stand for anything controversial (like THE TRUTH)! PCC refuses to stand against the Devil's corrupt Modern Bible revisions. 

Consequently, PCC bids Godspeed to the wicked Bob Jones University crowd. Pastor Quinan literally called the sickening Harvest Baptist Church on Guam their “sister church.” Sister in spiritual whoredom you mean! God pity these wicked institutions today, who refuse to stand against evil. That dear reader is exactly WHY the demonic heresies of Lordship Salvation and Misunderstood Repentance have so easily crept into the churches. Pastor would rather remain NEUTRAL in the things of God, than to stand and be put outside the gate with Jesus. Today's cowardly pastors are not willing to suffer reproach for the name of Christ!

I know some people would prefer that I don't mention any names, like SEAN QUINLAN. Brother, we need to name names of loafers, and mark those who don't care about the accuracy of the Gospel. Romans 16:17-18, “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

Ironically, the Bob Jones crowd and their supporters (like Sean Quinlan) accuse me of causing division, but that is not what this Bible passage means at all. Folks, there is only ONE GOSPEL. There is only ONE HOLY BIBLE. So anyone who comes along preaching ANOTHER GOSPEL, or promoting ANOTHER BIBLE, is the one who is causing DIVISION. They are the guilty ones who are causing offences CONTRARY TO SOUND DOCTRINE. I am not trying to smear Sean Quinlan's name, I am trying to get preachers TO CARE! I am trying through my humble Bible preaching to WAKE PREACHER'S UP! 

God knows that I am simply MARKING (identifying) them (like Pastor Sean Quinlan) who make light of THE TRUTH, and bid Godspeed to devils in the pulpit today like Dr. Steve Pettit at BJU. 2nd John 1:11, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is a cesspool of iniquity, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men like Steve Pettit and John MacArthur. I am not the liar, they are! I am not the one perverting the free grace Gospel, they are! I am not the one promoting umpteen Bible revisions, they are! I am not the one adding forsaking sinful behavior to get to Heaven, they are! I am marking them, and exposing them, and avoiding them, and so should you!!!

The simple reason why our churches today are getting caught up in the Devil's net of Lordship Salvation and Misunderstood Repentance, is because pastors don't care anymore. Times are tough, lawsuits are coming at churches left and right, the Christian Law Association can't handle all the cases against churches (they totally blew me off twice when I asked for their legal help), pastors are running scared like little girls, and nobody gives a damn anymore! That is not the way God wants things to be. The man or women who walks with God will HATE EVIL (Psalms 97:10). They will HATE EVERY FALSE WAY (Psalms 119:104). 

You show me a bad pastor like Chuck Phelps, Sean Quinlan, Marty Herron or Gary Walton, who sinfully bid Godspeed to a wicked Calvinist institution today like Bob Jones University, and I'll show you someone who DOESN'T walk with God. My King James Bible says Psalms 119:104, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.” The obvious reason why today's shameful pastors don't HATE EVERY FALSE WAY, is because they don't truly abide in the Word of God as they think they do. Oh they may spend time preparing sermons and reading the Bible, but they don't really grasp THE TRUTH. 

Remember, even the Devil misquoted the Bible and took it out of context, during the three times He temped Jesus in Matthew 4:1-10. Just because a pastor is knowledgeable of a bunch of Scriptures DOESN'T mean that he is a good Bible teacher. Ninety-five percent of what John MacArthur teaches is good stuff, and he seems like a good Bible teacher, but then he perverts the meaning of repentance, gets the Gospel wrong, gets the blood of Jesus wrong, and it turns out he is a lousy Bible teachers, and not even a born-again Christian!

Has Lordship Salvation crept into your church? If so, you are in a cult. Please leave while you can, before you follow their damnable heresies and go to Hell with them. Lordship Salvation is a perversion of God's grace! Pastors are no longer contending for the faith (Jude 1:3), and that is why heresies are creeping into the churches. Sadly, many pastors are increasingly broadening the limits of what is considered “orthodox theology.” Dear friend, there is a night and day difference between Lordship Salvation (i.e., Calvinism) and a free grace Gospel (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). Salvation cannot be by both! Both plans of salvation may be wrong, or one right and one wrong, but both simply cannot be right! Please don't tolerate this garbage in your Bible college, ministry or church, expose it quickly and nip the Devil in the bud where it hurts!
