The Bible Teaches To Rebuke False Prophets Sharply

Titus 1:13-14, "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."

Hellholes like Pensacola Christian College (PCC) and Bob Jones University (BJU) DON'T CARE about right doctrine! What saith the Scripture? Titus 1:13-14, "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." I have been rebuking them sharply as the Bible teaches, but they are not listening. Lordship Salvation is a commandment of men, a fable, not the truth. The Devil's lie that you must be willing to turn from your sinful bad habits to get to Heaven is a commandment of men, a fable, not the truth. These deadly LIES cause men's hearts to "turn from the truth."

I CARE enough to preach THE TRUTH, and not merely coddle these infidel preachers and complicit apostate institutions in their wickedness.

I think the world understands just fine what I am preaching. What they don't understand is when some lying false prophet like Pastor Jeff Redlin at PCC's Campus Church falsely tells a lost sinner that they must be willing to turn away from their sinful bad habits to be saved, that they must submit to obey God's will instead of their self serving sins to go to Heaven. THAT IS NOT THE GOSPEL!!! These are exact quotes from their perverse literature at Campus Church, propagated by the cult at PCC.

I had to unfriend someone today on Facebook. He's been nipping at my heels for over a year, putting me down because he doesn't like when I expose false prophets, expose corrupt Bible colleges and expose cult churches. Well too bad! God wants us to SPEAK UP; Satan wants us to SHUT UP! I'm speaking up!!!

Do you realize that when you just preach a simple Gospel, but don't warn people about what is not the Gospel, that every hellbound Mormon, Roman Catholic, Seventh-Day Adventist and other pseudo-Christian cults will wholeheartedly agree with you! Every hellbound Mormon, Catholic and Seventh-Day Adventist believes that Jesus died on a cross for their sins. They believe that Jesus was buried and resurrected three days later. But those cults ALL add more to God's simple plan of salvation. All of the cults I just mentioned require water baptism (the heresy of Baptismal Regeneration) to be saved. That is not the Gospel taught in the Holy Bible. Seventh-Day Adventists teach the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation, as does PCC, BJU, Pacific Garden Mission's 'UNSHACKLED' radio program, and the ungodly Harvest Baptist Church cult on Guam.

I Hate The Ecumenical Movie Series 'The Chosen'

As I mentioned, when you preach a vague Gospel message, trying not to offend people by telling them what is not the Gospel, you are helping Satan to blind lost sinners (2nd Corinthians 4:4). Case in point is the popular 'The Chosen' television series which unsaved Mormons helped to create (shame on Dallas Jenkins, creator of The Chosen, who says at 3:51 in this video that he thinks some LDS are saved). Dallas Jenkins is a wicked man! Mormons love it because Jenkin's plan of salvation is so vague in The Chosen, that even the cults can embrace it. So how is this stupid film series helping the cause of Christ. It's not! It's just making Dallas Jenkins a multi-millionaire!!! We are living in an apostate time friends!

As I mentioned, I really hate 'THE CHOSEN' television series, because it is so vague that hellbound Roman Catholics and Mormons still think they are saved, and the movie series doesn't expose them as being unsaved. Again, at 3:51 in this video, Dallas Jenkins (creator of The Chosen series), plainly says that he would never be so arrogant as to say that no Catholics or Mormons are Christians. Well, Dallas is a darn fool! I can tell you with all biblical authority that anyone who adheres to the Satanic plan of damnation of the Roman Catholic or Mormon false religions IS NOT A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN!!! What Mr. Jenkins is really doing is sanctioning these false religions, giving them legitimacy as to avoid offending them at all cost (because that would anger them and he would lose lots of money). Woe unto Dallas Jenkins when he stands before God on judgment day, for helping Satan blind lost sinners.

Caring Christians Tell The Truth

By God's grace, I will keep telling the truth. I'll die before I stop preaching against damnable false prophets. Eternal lives are at stake. Since adding even the slightest bit of human effort cancels grace and perverts the Gospel, it is of the utmost importance that we warn people WHAT IS NOT THE GOSPEL, because PCC and BJU are preaching another gospel that cannot produce the new birth. Garbage like The Chosen Tv series does nothing to help the cause of Christ, it just further coddles unsaved religious people in their false hope. You better believe I'm going to make a fuss!

Dr. Mark G. Cambron Has Repentance 100% Correct

2nd Timothy 2:25-26, “In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.”

Here is an excellent and needful writing by Dr. Mark G. Cambron (1911-2000) on the subject of REPENTANCE. Please read the following quote carefully because Dr. Cambron is one of few theologian who gets it, that is, he understands the simplicity of the Gospel and that repentance does not mean turning from sin as proponents of Lordship Salvation foolishly teach.

Here is what the Bible teaches, as explained by Dr. Cambron...
Repentance is necessary for salvation.

The Greek word for repent is metanoeo, which, translated into English is: to change ones mind. It does not mean to turn from sin. That would add works to salvation.

Repentance for salvation means a change of mind from men's ideas of salvation and religion, to an acceptance of Gods only way of salvation.

This results in a completely new creation, not a reformation of the old. The old nature remains as evil as ever after salvation and has not been reformed . . . The old nature can now be controlled by the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit.

God guarantees salvation. This is His gift to us.
God guarantees reward and fruit to the obedient son.
God guarantees chastening and loss of rewards to the disobedient son.

God does not cast out disobedient children, but in some cases, does take them home. He does not permit His children to live as they please without His discipline and guidance.

Many teach repentance for salvation incorrectly, by including some form of human effort or righteousness, such as willingness to turn from sin, or turning from sin. This is heresy and has confused many people. It adds works to salvation and causes many to not understand Gods great gift. It is probation, not salvation. It is completely unscriptural. It is Galatianism and a counterfeit of the gospel.

It is a tragedy that many Christians live shallow Christian lives. The Cambron Institute is dedicated to the task of training Christian men and women in the importance of total dedication and making Jesus the Lord of their lives not to be saved but because they are saved.

Shallow Christianity cannot be cured by adding works to salvation.

Salvation is not the result of what we do, but is by receiving what God has done for us. Acts 13:38, 39; Acts 20:20: Gal. 1:8,9; Gal. 2:4; Gal. 2:21; Gal. 3:1.3; Gal. 5:1-4; Eph. 2:8-10; II Cor. 5:21;John 3:16-18; Phil. 3:9; Titus 3:5-8:11 Cor. 11:13-1 5.

SOURCE: The Cambron Institute
Bravo! Dr. Cambron had several (at least eight that I counted) earned degrees from various theological seminaries. It is refreshing to see a man with so much education actually be correct about God's simple plan of salvation. Most highly educated men are fools! I am thankful to God for Brother Cambron and his helpful books and sermons that he left behind for others to be edified from.

Repentance To Acknowledge The Truth

I would like to briefly point out something from our text passage in 2nd Timothy 2:25-26, “In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.” Carefully notice that the Bible does not teach repentance “of your sins” in 2nd Timothy 2:25; but rather, “repentance to the acknowledgment of the truth.”

Bible repentance is about the truth, not your sins. As Dr. Cambron rightly teaches, repentance for salvation means a change of mind from men's ideas of salvation and religion, to an acceptance of Gods only way of salvation. That is, the truth. Bible repentance is simply a change of mind to agree with the truth of God's Word concerning the Gospel.

Pastor Harry Ironside Also Has Repentance 100% Correct

Pastor Harry Ironside (1876-1951) thankfully preached a free grace Gospel. I love this man for upholding a biblical free grace Gospel. Read the edifying words of Pastor Ironside:
“The Gospel is not a call to repentance, or to amendment of our ways, to make restitution for past sins, or to promise to do better in the future. These things are proper in their place, but they do not constitute the Gospel; for the Gospel is not good advice to be obeyed, it is good news to be believed. Do not make the mistake then of thinking that the Gospel is a call to duty or a call to reformation, a call to better your condition, to behave yourself in a more perfect way than you have been doing in the past …

Nor is the Gospel a demand that you give up the world, that you give up your sins, that you break off bad habits, and try to cultivate good ones. You may do all these things, and yet never believe the Gospel and consequently never be saved at all.”

SOURCE: Harry A. Ironside, from the sermon: 'What Is The Gospel?'
In his helpful Gospel tract titled, 'ANOTHER GOSPEL?', Pastor Ironside writes:
"When anyone comes promising salvation to those ‘who make full surrender' of all that they have to God, and who 'pay the price of full salvation' he is preaching another gospel, for the price was paid on Calvary's cross and the work that saves is finished. It was Christ Jesus who made the full surrender when He yielded His life on Calvary that saves us, not our surrender in any way to Him."

SOURCE: Harry A. Ironside, from the Gospel tract, 'Another Gospel'
Beware Of Satan's False Prophet John MacArthur

Dr. Harry Ironside just contradicts everything that Pastor John MacArthur teaches concerning salvation. In sharp contrast to Pastor Ironside, here are some of MacArthur's foolish unbiblical teachings from his book, 'The Gospel According To Jesus' (Zondervan 1988):
Saving faith is "unconditional surrender, a complete resignation of self and absolute submission." (p. 153)

"Salvation is for those who are willing to forsake everything." (p. 78)

"Saving faith is a commitment to leave sin and follow Jesus Christ at all costs. Jesus takes no one unwilling to come on those terms." (p. 87)

"Eternal life brings immediate death to self." (p. 140)
Kindly said, John MacArthur was inspired by demons when he penned those heretical words! There is no way possible to reconcile the beliefs of Harry Ironside with those of John MacArthur, and only a wicked person would try. Dr. MacArthur errantly teaches that no one can be saved unless they are willing to UNCONDITIONALLY SURRENDER and FORSAKE EVERYTHING. This is not what the inspired Word of God teaches.

Please read my humbly article titled: Dr. John R. Rice Refutes Lordship Salvation

Now let me quote to you again the soulwinning man of God, Pastor Harry Ironside:
"Nor is the Gospel a demand that you give up the world, that you give up your sins, that you break off bad habits, and try to cultivate good ones. You may do all these things, and yet never believe the Gospel and consequently never be saved at all."

SOURCE: Harry A. Ironside, from the sermon: 'What Is The Gospel?'
Salvation is a gift, paid for by Jesus' literal, physical, precious blood (1st Peter 1:18,19; 1st John 1:7; Hebrews 9:12; Revelation 1:5). We are saved by HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS (Matthew 6:33; Romans 10:3,4; 1st Corinthians 5:21), and not our own willingness to do better or turn from our sinful ways (Isaiah 64:6; Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5; Romans 4:5,6,22).

It is tragic that I dare say 85% of Baptist churches today have succumbed to the Devil's lie that to get to Heaven you must first “be willing to turn from your sins.” Dear friend, the very suggestion would scare any lost sinner away! I am thankful that I wasn't presented with such an unbiblical plan of damnation when I was a teenager, because I never would have trusted Christ under such demanding and unreasonable conditions.

If someone would have told me back then at age 13, that I must first commit to be willing to forsake my sinful bad habits to be saved, I would have kindly declined. Who can give up their sinning? To even expect someone to “be willing” to give up their sinning is NOT the Gospel, it is WORKS. Sadly, we've got a bunch of stupid preachers running around today, who are trying to rewrite the Bible to fit their flawed human understanding instead of preaching the Gospel as it is written in the Bible (1st Corinthian 15:1-4).

Beware Of Satan's False Prophet Ray Comfort

Case in point is this shocking encounter between Ray Comfort and a lost woman on an airplane. Ray horribly tells her that repentance means “LIVING A LIFESTYLE THAT PROVES THE REALITY OF YOUR REPENTANCE!” And then he adds, “IT'S A CONTINUAL THING!” Read for yourself what Mr. Comfort horribly told a woman in this disturbing transcript from Living Waters ministry...
“So if the plane goes down, you'd end up in Hell! There are two things you have to do to be saved. Do you remember what they are? I told you what they are—You've got to repent and trust the Savior! ... God's offering you everlasting life upon your repentance and faith in Christ. Who in his right mind wouldn't say, 'Whoa! That's a good offer!' (The curious woman asks what it means to “repent”?)... Have you ever said you're sorry to someone you did something wrong to? That's all repentance is—You've sinned against God; it's a matter of saying, 'God, I'm sorry,' and then LIVING A LIFESTYLE that proves the reality of your repentance. That's what repentance is, it's a continual thing! God, 'I'm sorry, but I'm not going going to lie or steal or blaspheme Your name ever again. It has that attitude! And the second thing—trust in Jesus!” [emphasis added]

SOURCE: Evangelist Ray Comfort, “I've never killed anyone” (MP3 clip from video)
Dear reader, I triple-dog dare you to show me even one verse from the inspired King James Bible that teaches “LIVING A LIFESTYLE” is required as part of being saved. You cannot! Now my friend, “a double-dog dare” is serious business, but a triple-dog dare is something you don't want to mess around with! I triple-dog dare you to show me even one Bible verse that agrees with these false statements by Ray Comfort. You cannot.

Love The Arab People

Galatians 3:26-29, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

Here below is a screenshot of a page from Jack Chick's (1924-2016) stupid tract titled, "Love The Jewish People." I love Mr. Chick's alluring art work, but his theology was atrocious...

What Jack Chick is teaching is absurd!!! The United States has given Israel more aid than any other nation since World War II, granting more than $260 BILLION in foreign aid to these spoiled rotten ingrates. Jack Chick was smoking too much weed!

The United States is deeply in debt today because of the Communist Federal Reserve Bank, which began in 1913. The 5th Plank of Karl Marx's 'Communist Manifesto' calls for a Central Bank!

In the preceding audio presentation, Dr. G. Edward Griffin (born 1931) exposes the most blatant scam of all history. It’s all here: the cause of wars, boom-bust cycles, inflation, depression, prosperity. Jack Chick needed to do his homework and get off the religious bandwagon. Religion is the worst thing that ever happened to this sin-cursed world! As believers we ought to love both the Jews and Arabs equally, and not take sides in their Middle East conflicts. Everyone needs Jesus! Here are three different versions of one of my favorite song called: “Everybody Ought To Know.”
Everybody ought to know who Jesus is!

Dear reader, I encourage you to love everyone, not just Jews. There's not an anti-Semite bone in my body. I am so sickened by the genocidal murder of 28,576 Palestinians in Gaza over the past few months by Israel's homicidal maniac president, Benjamin Netanyahu. Just because you kill my brother, doesn't give me or anybody else the right to murder your entire extended family and neighbours. The manmade nation of Israel is not defending herself today, she is being vindictive. That is not justice, it is cruel vengeance!

Israel's leaders are foolishly making long-term enemies, who will likely seek future deadly retribution against Israel. Iran in particular is very upset about the needless slaughter in Gaza. The never-ending Middle East quagmire reminds me of the juvenile thug street gangs all across America, who incessantly murder each other's loved one's and revival gang members to settle the score. So the bloodshed never ceases! Can't we all just get along?

I am 100% against the evil that Israel is doing to murder tens of thousands of innocent people in Gaza. The United States federal government has been totally complicit and worthless to stop the genocide. The ungodly controlled American news media is nothing more than a megaphone for New World Order interests. Sadly, the United States is a proxy of Israel. That is, Israel controls America (Revelation 17:18). I am so ashamed to be called an American today!

Woe unto Israel and her ungodly accomplices! If you are a redeemed saint of God, and you wickedly support the genocide in Gaza going on right now, you are a terrible person and need to get right with God. I do not stand with Israel and neither should you. I am on the side of righteousness, justice and truth (Joshua 24:15). Thank you for reading my blog.

Beware Of Pastor Cliffe Knechtle Who Denies A Literal Hell

Revelation 20:15, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

Kindly said, Pastor Cliffe Knechtle of the Grace Community Church in Canaan, Connecticut, is a darn fool. Mr. Knechtle denies a literal burning Hell. The Holy Bible calls Pastor Knechtle a bold-faced liar!!! He errantly thinks being separated from God is what Hell means, and nothing more. If God allows suffering and death in this temporary life, there's no reason to believe that He won't in eternity. Something is very wrong with the theology of a professed Christian who denies the reality of an everlasting burning Hell. The Bible says the unsaved (those who die in their sins without the Savior) will go straight to Hell to be tormented in fire and brimstone forever. ...
Revelation 21:8, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
Moreover, the inspired Word of God has more to say about Hell than it does Heaven. No one can honestly claim to believe the Holy Bible while denying the reality of a literal place of fire and brimstone where the wicked are punished forever in Hell. Revelation 20;15, "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."

Jesus continually spoke about a literal burning place of Hell. It is very wrong and bad Bible scholarship for anyone to claim that Jesus was merely speaking metaphorically. Matthew 5:29-30, “
And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

2nd Thessalonians 1:8-10, “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

I've heard foolish Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons (both cults that deny a literal burning Hell), allege that the following Scripture passage merely refers to the grave. Psalms 9:17, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” However, if “hell” in this passage only refers to the grave, then the Bible makes no sense. Why would the wicked and the righteous go to the same place? What would be the point of God warning the wicked? I mean, if the wicked go to the same place as the righteous, then this warning is meaningless. Clearly, the Bible is warning that once in the grave, the wicked go to a very different place than the righteous do. That is the whole point of this Scriptural warning.

The word “hell” throughout the Old Testament is the Hebrew word Sheol, which means, “realm of the dead.” Death was a mystery to folks in the Old Testament, just as it still is today in modern times. No one knows what happens after death, since no one has ever died and come back to talk about it (although many con artists have been paid millions of dollars by making false claims which led to a book deal, selling movie rights and umpteen television appearances).

As a Christian, I have always been equally amazed and disturbed that people won't believe what the inspired Holy Bible says about the afterlife, but they'll believe what some charlatan says on television. John 5:43, “I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.” Isn't that something? I don't know about you dear reader, but I am going to believe the Word of God. I don't believe the bizarre claims of what con artists say on radio, television and in books.

For example: An evangelist named Bill Wiese for decades has made millions of dollars by claiming that he died and went to Hell for 23 minutes. Mr. Wiese bizarrely claims that in Hell he saw 10-foot tall green demons with large fangs and claws. I don't believe anything that Bill Wiese says!!! People are so gullible aren't they? People will fall for anything! That is exactly what Jesus said in John 5:43—that people will believe anyone with a crazy story to tell, but they won't believe the inspired Word of God.

Dear friend, please run from anyone who denies the existence and reality of a literal burning Hell, where Christ-rejecters will be punished by God almighty for ever and ever. Revelation 14:11, “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” There is no place of Purgatory taught in the Bible. There are biblically only two places you can go in the afterlife—Heaven or Hell. If you die in the Lord, you go to Heaven (Revelation 14:13); if you die in your sins, you go to Hell (John 8:24). The choice is yours alone to make.

Beware Of The '' Ministry Website

Galatians 2:1-5, “Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also. And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain. But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised: And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.”

The Apostle Paul said he refused to tolerate false prophets for even one hour (Galatians 2:5). I visited the website and it is 100% of the Devil. This is Satanic!!!

On their website, in an article titled: “How To Become A Christian,” Fritz Chery errantly teaches...
“Repentance is, I’m dropping all that is in my hand to grasp a hold of something better.” SOURCE
No, that is NOT repentance! In God's true plan of salvation you don't have to STOP or START anything. One of my favorite free grace preachers, Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold makes these helpful statements:
“When it comes to salvation, if you're saved by grace, there's nothing to stop or start.” —Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold, “Legalistic Judaism is Today's Calvinism
“Christ paid for my sins. If He paid for my sins, why would I have to go to Hell to pay for my sins? All He wanted me to do was believe that He did it all for me. That is the greatest news in all the world! And no man, no preacher, has the authority to change the Gospel message. Just because you don't see how it works, or understand how it works—you don't have to know, it ain't none of our business; but God says there is a Heaven and a Hell, and if you want to go to Heaven this is what you do, and your opinion don't count.” —Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold, Legalistic Judaism is Today's Calvinism
Your behavior has nothing to do with getting saved. I am sick and tired of lying false prophets who say that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone, but then say deadly crap like this from the heretical website.
...a true repentant heart will not live a continuous lifestyle of sin. SOURCE
Listen, everyone (saved or unsaved) continues in a lifestyle of sin. The crazy idea that somehow because you sin less today than you did yesterday is not evidence of the new birth. The false prophets in Matthew 7:21-23 did many wonderful works but they went to Hell. Jesus denied knowing them as His sheep. Good works and a changed life don't prove anything!!! BEWARE of the demonic website.
“A repentant heart has been so moved by the grace of God, and it has been so captivated by the beauty of the Lord, that it wants to live a life pleasing to Him.” SOURCE
That is the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation! The Bible is full of examples of sinful saints who lived horrible lifestyles of sin (e.g., Lot, Samson, Demas, Solomon, Cain). David commit adultery and murder to hide his wickedness. If forsaking one's sins is necessary to know that you are saved, then how much sin is allowed? Where do you draw the line? At one point of sinning should you start to worry you're not saved. Do you see the fallacy of such unbiblical thinking. Lordship Salvation causes people to worry, fear and live with uncertainty about salvation.
“Repentance is a change of mind about Christ, which will lead to a lifestyle change.” SOURCE
Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do. Beware of the religious cults today who masquerade as Bible colleges and churches, who preach a counterfeit gospel of partial faith in Christ plus something else (e.g., turning from your sinful ways, water baptism or keeping sacraments). Eternal life is a free gift from God (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Pastor M.R. DeHaan (1891-1965) said it very well in defense of a free grace Gospel:
"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)
God does not demand or expect for you to forsake a sinful lifestyle to receive His free gift. That is not how the new birth works. You come to God as a guilty sinner and place your childlike faith in Christ, receiving His sacrifice upon the cross as full payment for your sins and believing that He was buried, but then bodily resurrected from the dead three days later. This is “the Gospel, by which all who BELIEVE IT are saved (1st Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 1:16).

My favorite of all free grace preacher quotes is by Pilgrim's Progress author, John Bunyan:
“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.” —John Bunyan (1628-1688)
Kindly said, Fritz Chery fails to put a difference between sanctification and justification, he mixes the two. In so doing Fritz has corrupted the Gospel, and cast stumbling blocks before the people, leading people into Hell with himself. No one is saved who only partially trusts in Christ plus something more. Please watch the excellent documentary, 'Another Gospel.'

Here are some excellent helpful quotes from Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold...
“Salvation is one thing and service is another, and never the two goes together. No man is saved because he serves, and no man has to serve because he is saved. Gotta keep them separate. And if you don't do it, the Scriptures will be confusing to you. You'll not rightly divide what God has to say.” —Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold, "Why Lordship Salvation Is Wrong"
“Lordship Salvation is the unsupportable and unbiblical belief that the performance of good works, the promise of good works, or the evidence of good works, must accompany faith in Christ to establish or provide evidence that such faith has resulted in eternal life.” —Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold, “Jesus Versus John MacArthur”
I humbly think Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) said it best of all:
“To add anything to salvation other than the sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross is to say that His death was not sufficient payment for our sins.” —Dr. Curtis Hutson
Like so many false teachers today, who are all hellbound infidels, Fritz Chery is caught between grace and works. And with that great truth I will end this important defense of the Christian faith. Thank you for reading dear friend.

A Review Of Evangelist Billy Graham's Book: “How To Be Born Again”

Romans 11:6, “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.”

Evangelist Billy Graham wrote a book in 1977 titled, “How To Be Born Again” (ISBN: 0-8499-0017-4). I have a copy of the book in front of me. I have read the book and it contains some disturbing material that is contrary to the Holy Scriptures.

Here is an example of the blatant heresy taught by Billy Graham from his book:
After his conversion, the Apostle Paul took three years of study in Arabia. It took God forty years to train Moses on the back side of the desert before he made his public appearance. In these days we often hear of a person who is in jail one day, and a few weeks later is on a public platform testifying concerning his conversion before a large crowd. Sometimes this is followed by a great tragedy—the so-called new convert had really not been born again; he had only professed Christ, but had not been willing to pay the price of following Christ. [emphasis added]

SOURCE: Billy Graham, from the book, “How To Be Born Again,” pp. 164-165
My friend, that is utter heresy! Mr. Graham is teaching that a person's profession of faith is false if they go into sin afterwards, claiming that they were not willing to “PAY THE PRICE OF FOLLOWING CHRIST” to be saved. That is satanic doctrine! Billy is teaching works-salvation! The Word of God teaches that eternal life is a free gift, which means that we don't have to pay anything to be saved. Jesus paid the ultimate PRICE, which was His precious blood, and the PLACE where the blood was applied is the Mercy Seat in Heaven!!! When Billy Graham speaks of being required to PAY A PRICE to be saved, he speaks as a fool. Jesus paid a debt that He did not owe, because we owed a debt that we could not pay. JESUS PAID IT ALL!!!

Billy Graham is saying that you cannot be saved unless there is a deliberate and intentionally turning from the act of sin, which is 100% human effort. Here is the suggested prayer on page 169 that Graham gives . . .
Oh God, I acknowledge that I have sinned against You. I am sorry for my sins. I am willing to turn from my sins. I openly receive and acknowledge Jesus Christ as my Savior. I confess Him as Lord. From this moment on I want to live for Him and serve Him. In Jesus' name, Amen. [emphasis added]

SOURCE: Billy Graham, from the book, “How To Be Born Again,” p. 169
The preceding false plan of salvation by Billy Graham makes the following errors: 
  1. Nowhere in the Bible are we required to “be sorry for our sins” to be saved.
  2. Nowhere in the Bible are we required “to turn from our sins” to be saved.
  3. Nowhere in the Bible are we required to “openly receive and acknowledge Jesus Christ” to be saved.
  4. Nowhere in the Bible are we required “to confess Jesus as Lord” to be saved
  5. Nowhere in the Bible are we required “to want to live for Jesus and serve Him” to be saved
Here's what Jesus said:
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.”
John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

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.”
1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”
There's nothing in the Word of God about doing all the extra things, which are all human effort, as required by false prophet Billy Graham. It is tragic that America's churches have fallen prey to heresy. Mr. Graham gets paid over $600,000 a year from his so-called “ministry,” and the rest of his family are also dipping deep into the pot. Religion pays well. Like Balaam, Billy Graham is a prophet for hire, who has sinfully done more than any man alive to unite unsaved Roman Catholics and evangelicals together. The consequential result has been massive apostasy, completely corrupting the Gospel with Lordship Salvation as taught by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Please don't be a fool by following a fool. I plead with you to follow the Scriptures alone!

I am writing this defense of the Christian faith so that you may be indeed “Rooted and built up in him [Jesus Christ], and stablished in the faith” (Colossians 2:7). I have nothing personal against Billy Graham. He definitely has that gleam in his eye, THAT LOOK, of a stern preacher; yet, tragically, his look is a total deception. Billy Graham is not saved, a satanic false prophet, a wolf in sheep's clothing. Shame on any preacher who idolizes or follows this man of sin. I am convinced that Mr. Graham is sincere, but the road to eternal damnation in Hell is paved with good intentions. My Graham's plan of salvation parallels the works-based plan of salvation of the workers of iniquity from Matthew 7:21-23. Jesus said to them, those who did “many wonderful works” in Jesus' name... I NEVER KNEW YOU!!!

Man Shall Not Live By Bread Alone, But By Every Word Of God

Jesus quotes Deuteronomy 8:3 in Matthew 4:4, "And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live."

Little did the Hebrews know (not even their ancestors who went through the Red Sea), that God allowed the Hebrews in the Wilderness to go hungry and suffer for 40 years to TEST THEIR FAITH. God wanted them to learn that life is more than eat, drink and be merry because someday we die.

God wanted His people to learn that living by faith (trusting God) is infinitely more important than having food to eat. That is why we read in 1st Peter 1:7-9, "That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls."

Most believers are naΓ―ve, thinking that God is upset or punishing them because things are so bad in their life; but the opposite is true. God is testing our faith, to teach us that unshakable faith comes from having our faith shaken. As we just read in 1st Peter 1:7-9, the problems and hardships in a believer's life are more valuable then gold that perisheth. I just checked and Gold is now selling for $2,020.37 an ounce. That's $32,325.92 per pound. Your burdens, heartaches and miseries are worth MUCH MORE than that the Bible says!

Without pain we cannot grow and learn. Faith is like the old 35 mm film, it develops in the dark. It is the bad things which happen to us that drive us to the inspired Word of God. Jesus' quotes Moses' words from Deuteronomy 8:3 in Matthew 4:4. Also in Luke 4:4, "And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God." Notice that we need "every word" to live by. God did not give us an incomplete Holy Bible. I encourage you to listen to this helpful MP3 sermon by Pastor Jack Hyles titled, "HOW WE GOT GOD'S WORD," in which he explains we we need "every word" of God to live by.

Also, I recommend hearing Dr. Hyles' excellent sermon titled, "THE BATTLE OF THE AGES" from 1994.

I also wrote this article...
We must have EVERY WORD of God if we are to live. Since all the different Bible versions today do not have the same words, they cannot all be God's inspired Word.

For example: Look how the popular English Standard Version (ESV), used by Bob Jones University and many Baptist churches today, perverts Luke 4:4, by removing "every word of God"...
KING JAMES BIBLE (KJV) - Luke 4:4, "And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, π—―π˜‚π˜ π—―π˜† π—²π˜ƒπ—²π—Ώπ˜† π˜„π—Όπ—Ώπ—± 𝗼𝗳 π—šπ—Όπ—±."

ENGLISH STANDARD VERSION (ESV) - Luke 4:4, "And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone.’”

I HATE the Devil's modern Bible revisions. Why, oh why, are so many Bible colleges and church pastors so woefully stupid, wicked and willfully ignorant today in this matter? Shame on Bob Jones University and Pensacola Christian College for wickedly bidding them Godspeed!

God said that we need EVERY WORD of His to live by. Half a Bible won't do. 65 books won't do. We need all 66 books! The original Bible had no chapter divisions or verse numbers. Men added those centuries later after the Bible was completed in 96 AD, to make it easier to navigate through the Scriptures. It was just a collection of 66 books.

God's Holy Spirit inspired approximately 40 men to pen the Bible verbatim as He dictated it to them. God said what He meant, and He meant what He said. I believe that those 54 men who translated the King James Bible were working with inspired texts, and they faithfully translated those ancient Hebrew, Chaldean and Greek texts, and other available Latin translations, into an English Bible for us today. I believe since they did an accurate job, we have an inspired today.

Having said that, respectfully, I fully disagree with Peter Ruckman and Gail Riplinger that God inspired the King James Bible and its 54 translators to give us a "newly inspired" Bible that supersedes the ancient texts. Since they were working with texts that were already inspired, and they faithfully translated those words into the English language, we have an inspired Bible today. There was no new inspiration given by God.

But these modern corrupt Bible perversions are NOT inspired, because Satan has tampered with them, changing thousands of words and butchering God's Word. No wonder Amos 8:11 says that God would send a famine of the Word of God in the last days, "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:" Could this be because of the wickedness of men who have perverted the Words of the living God? I do not know. But I do know that the new revised Bibles are deadly, attacking Jesus' deity, removing the Godhead, changing what it means to "repent" and in so doing perverting the very Gospel itself.

Thank God that we have an EVERY WORD Bible today in the inspired King James Bible.
