Discourse with an Elder

  I have made my views known. Having heeded the call of my Savior (Revelation 18:4), I have come out of Mystery Babylon. As I expected, orthodox Christendom has a problem with my belief in a God Who will accomplish His goal. They insist that I should believe the myths and man-made doctrines that are preached every Sunday.

  I expressed my views to a dear friend and brother in Christ who is an Elder in the Primitive Baptist Church. He responded: "I want you to know that what you have come to believe grieves me greatly, especially the idea that God is going to save all men, a thing which is totally foreign to the entire tenor of the word of God".

  I wonder if my friend has ever read these two verses: Acts 3:20, 21 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. God's prophets have been speaking about the "good news" since the beginning of the world; but, that Christ will save all is foreign to the entire tenor of God's word? Something is not right. Take this journey with me. Let us look at what God's word says!

Sons of Thunder

Who were the brothers that were known as the Son's of Thunder and how are their actions towards the Samaritans typical of how Christians act today? I mentioned in my post Hell Fire that every time I hear someone speaking about hell fire and burning sinners I think of Jonah. You know the story of the prophet Jonah right? Jonah was essentially guilty of the same callousness that the Son's of Thunder were guilty of. As always, let us look into the Word of God for the truth.

Happy Holidays

Tired of Happy Holidays? Did someone take the Christ out of your Christmas? I just saw this headline. "School district bans Christmas cookies..."

No worries. There are several ways to look at the situation. Let's look at a few facts.

Our Savior Jesus was not born on December 25th. We Americans love our holidays and our traditions but did you know that our Savior Jesus was not born on December 25th? It is true. He was not even born in the winter. He was probably born in the early fall.

Salvation of Non-believers

How will non-believers be saved? We should know because the scriptures teach the eventual salvation of all.

1st Timothy 4:9-11 Faithful is the saying and worthy of all welcome (for this we are toiling and being reproached) that we rely on the living God, Who is the Savior of all mankind, especially of believers. These things be charging and teaching. (Concordant Literal)

And for all of you KJV only folks: Timothy 4:9-11 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, specially of those that believe. These things command and teach. (KJV)

Hell Fire

There is no such thing as the Christian hell that will burn flesh for ever and for ever. It is a man-made hoax! It is a pagan concept, it is false and the thought that God our Father would burn any of His creation in a hell of eternity for vengeance or for any other reason is repulsive. I am convinced that no one who believes that God is capable of such a thing can truly know Him. They cannot know Him and believe that he would do that!
