A Less Wrong False Teacher?

Is there such a thing as a “less wrong” false teacher? Or have you ever said something like, “Well, he’s not as bad as this person.”?

I caught myself thinking that last night. First, we all know what a false teacher is… one who does not preach the gospel. One who is, as some put it, gospel light. Or any number of movements out there – the Health, Wealth & Prosperity Gospel, the Word of Faith movement, Continue reading

False Teachers

Here is a video to think about from Paul Washer.

He says (and I completely agree with based on Biblical fact) that,

“False teachers are God’s judgment on people who don’t want God but in the name of religion plan on getting everything their carnal heart desires.”

“He [Joel Osteen and all the rest] is the judgment of God upon them [people under false teaching] because they want exactly what he wants, and it is not God!”

Think about that…

Ten Indictments Against the Modern Church

Below is a video from a sermon preached by Paul Washer in October 2008 at a revival conference in Atlanta, GA. The title of the sermon is “Ten Indictments Against The Modern Church in America.”

It is already being called one of the best sermons of our time. Paul Washer delivers a urgent appeal to the Christians and Churches in North America that many have been believing a false gospel and have false assurance of their salvation. He lists ten indictments against the modern Church system in America. Continue reading

Pat Robertson, Al Mohler & Haiti

In case you haven’t yet heard Pat Robertson comments about the earthquake in Haiti, take a minute and watch the following video:

In short, Robertson claims that the earthquake was a result of God’s judgment after its founding fathers made a “pact to the Devil” in exchange for Haiti’s independence from France.

One problem (among the many with Robertson’s logic) is that he notes this as a true story. In fact, he is basing his comment on a long standing folk tale. Continue reading

5 Days of MacArthur – Justification By Faith

By John MacArthur

This article originally appeared here.

The Reformation doctrine of justification by faith is, and has always been, the number one target of the enemy’s attack. It provides the foundation of the bridge that reconciles God and man–without that key doctrine, Christianity falls. But the doctrine that the Reformers so painstakingly clarified, even spilled blood over, has become so muddled today that many Protestants barely recognize it. Sadly, there are some who react against a clear presentation of justification, calling it nothing more than useless hair-splitting. Continue reading

A Quick Word

“For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.” – 2 Timothy 4:3-4

“…and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” – 1 Corinthians 2:4-5

What is “sound teaching?” I would suggest that sound teaching is that which is based on Biblical truth; teaching which is from the Bible – the whole Bible. We can’t omit parts of the Bible because it doesn’t sound positive enough. Continue reading

Brokenness

A couple of days ago I listened to a sermon on Brokenness from Voddie Baucham (which I subsequently found on YouTube so you can hear it too).

First, I have heard Voddie Baucham speak before, and not only is he one of the smartest apologetics that I have heard, he is one of the smartest all around men I have heard, not to mention he has an amazing testimony.

I highly encourage you to take an hour of your time and listen to this sermon on brokenness. God speaks in His time, and I think He was speaking to me through Voddie and He might do the same for you. Continue reading

Paul Washer Revisited

Salvation is a supernatural work of God whereby someone really does become a new creature.

Preach The Word!

In continuing with my laziness of posting videos instead of actually taking the time to write something, here are two clips of two very different styles of preaching.

In one clip you will see a preacher preach the word of God, telling us that we are nothing, that we deserve nothing, that we deserve hell, and that we are literally destitute (this is exactly what the Bible teaches); that of course is not the end… well just watch the video. This is real powerful clip from Paul Washer. Continue reading

So…Joel Osteen released a Bible huh?

I actually wish this was a joke, but sadly it is not.  Joel Osteen has written the “Hope for Today Bible.” Here is part of the description from the publisher:

“We are who the Bible says we are, we can have what it says we can have, and we can do all that it promises we can do.”

Well, as I see it, the Bible says that I am a sinner who has fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23), and what I deserve is death (Romans 6:23), but because God is a just God of mercy, He sent His Son to die for me so that I might live (John 3:16, Romans 5:8). Yes indeed, Christ became sin for us so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21).  However, to receive this gift of life that we don’t deserve, we have to deny ourselves and follow Him (Mark 8:34). We have to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 16:31). Continue reading

Why Atheism Does Not Exist – Part 2

First, let me start off by saying that this really is not a continuation of the original post, but I titled this the same in order to bring back some of the readers and such. In addition, I will admit that I wrote the first post with the wrong motives in mind – I was writing it at a time when I had very few readers and I was trying to get more hits on my blog, yes, it was pathetic, I know. However, that is not to say I am changing my views, I stand behind what I wrote, but with this post, I am just going to look at the definition of atheism and why it is self-defeating.

My premise in making the statement, atheism does not exist, is based on the strict definition of atheism. So overall, I am saying at the most a person can be agnostic. I am not going to consider “weak atheism” vs. “strong atheism” because that is like saying “weak Christianity” vs. “strong Christianity” – it is a cop out. “Weak Christianity” doesn’t exist either. There are only two positions. Either you are a believer – one who has repented and placed faith in Jesus Christ – or you are a non-believer. Continue reading
