DEBATE NIGHT - "DOES THE BIBLE RESTRICT MARRIAGE TO A MAN AND WOMAN'

Rome's Counter-Reformation Is Antichrist's Global Agenda

 Constantine I is the founder of Romanism. After learning about the truth about Jesus and his followers he decided to allow and tolerate the first century Christians by deceiving them and pretending to have a vision of the cross. Constantine knew that he has no match to the "King of the Jews" and the only way he could continue to have a good relation with the Christians is to deceive them and join them. Hence, the Deceiver used him to create a new world order. Constantine I although was baptised as an Arian believer in his death bed. He continued to worship the sun. 



"Statuettes of Sol Invictus, carried by the standard-bearers, appear in three places in reliefs on the Arch of Constantine. Constantine's official coinage continues to bear images of Sol until 325/6. A solidus of Constantine as well as a gold medallion from his reign depict the Emperor's bust in profile twinned (jugate) with Sol Invictus, with the legend INVICTUS CONSTANTINUS[32]
Constantine decreed (March 7, 321) dies Solis—day of the Sun, "Sunday"—as the Roman day of rest (Codex Justinianus 3.12.2):

On the venerable day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country however persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits because it often happens that another day is not suitable for grain-sowing or vine planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost.[33]
Constantine's triumphal arch was carefully positioned to align with the colossal statue of Sol by the Colosseum, so that Sol formed the dominant backdrop when seen from the direction of the main approach towards the arch.[34]" - See  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sol_Invictus

 


"I am aware that, if I undertake, to prove that Romanism is not Christianity, I must expect to be called "bigoted, harsh, uncharitable." Nevertheless I am not daunted; for I believe that on a right understanding of this subject depends the salvation of millions. 


One reason why Popery has of late gained so much power in Great Britain and Ireland, and is gaining, power still, is that many Protestants look on it now as a form of true Christianity; and think that, on that account, notwithstanding great errors, it ought to be treated very tenderly. Many suppose that at the time of the Reformation, it was reformed, and that it is now much nearer the truth than it was before that time. It is still, however, the same; and, if examined, will be found to be so different from, and so hostile to, real Christianity, that it is not, in fact, Christianity at all.

But Romanism teaches men to hate, and, if they are able, to persecute to the death all those who will not receive it. Its deeds have been diabolical and murderous. It is "drunken with the blood of the saints." It has inscribed on the page of history warnings which appeal to the reason and the feelings of all generations. Such a warning is what is told of the 24th of August, 1572. On that day the Protestants of Paris were devoted to slaughter by members of the Papal Church. For the one offence of being Protestants, thousands were slain. The streets of Paris ran with blood; everywhere cries and groans, were mingled with the clangor of bells, the clash of arms, and the oaths of murderers. The king, Charles IX; stood, it is said, at a window, and, every now and then, fired on the fugitives. Every form of guilt, cruelty, and suffering, made that fearful night hideous and appalling. Never, in any city, which has professedly been brought under the influence of Christianity, was there such a reveling in blood and crime. You may say, "Why do you recall the atrocities of a time so remote?" I answer, Because this deed received the sanction of the Church of Rome as a meritorious demonstration of fidelity to Romish precepts and doctrines. When the tidings of this wholesale murder were received in Rome, the cannon of St. Angelo were fired, the city was illuminated and Pope Gregory XIII and his cardinals went in procession to all the churches, and offered thanksgivings at the shrine of every saint. The Cardinal of Lorraine, in a letter to Charles IX, full of admiration and applause of the bloody deed, said, "That which you have achieved was so infinitely above my hopes, that I should have never dared to contemplate it; nevertheless, I have always believed that the deeds of your Majesty would augment the glory of God, and tend to immortalize your name."" - extracted from https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/torrey_ra/fundamentals/58.cfm 
  IS ROMANISM CHRISTIANITY? By T. W. Medhurst,Glasgow, Scotland




 The Protestant Reformation established liberty and civil rights in the Western World, but the Roman Catholic Church developed a response at the Council of Trent, called the Counter-Reformation, to destroy Protestantism by infiltrating and immolating all governments and churches which do not bow to Papal Supremacy. All of the major events in world history since then, and the New World Order agenda today, are the direct result of Rome's ongoing pursuit of the Counter-Reformation agenda established at Trent, with the Jesuit Order being its principal catalyst. This video gives a summary of the spiritual developments in this war, particularly a brief history of the Ecumenical movement.

The late Pope Pius XI's Blasphemous Quote

Tuesday, July 23, 2019

GOD in the flesh. - Jesus Christ - Truly GOD & a SInless Man.



"The incarnation of Jesus Christ is the proof that God keeps his promises. This event is the key turning point in what is truly the greatest story ever told. At the dawn of human history, God placed Adam in Eden and commanded him not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. But Adam ate from the forbidden tree, plunging the entire human race into sin and death. But even as God was pronouncing the curse upon Adam, Eve, and the serpent (cf. Genesis 3), God promised to rescue Adam from his sin through the seed of the woman–that is, through a biological descendant from Eve who will redeem God’s people from their sin (Genesis 3:15). It will take a second Adam–one who obeys the covenant of works which Adam broke and who alone can redeem us from the guilt and power of sin–to undo the consequences brought upon us by the first Adam. And this brings us to the incarnation of Jesus Christ, the person in whom God fulfills his promises and who is our Immanuel (God with us). The Word must become flesh if any of us are to be saved from the havoc wrought upon us by the first Adam (cf. John 1:17). There is no other way.

The Old Testament is filled with various messianic prophecies, in which God’s promise to redeem his people are set forth with an amazing specificity. In fact, there are some sixty-one major messianic prophecies regarding the coming of Jesus Christ found throughout the Old Testament, all of which are explicitly fulfilled by the coming of Jesus Christ in human flesh as detailed in throughout New Testament. We have already seen that God’s promise to Adam and Eve in Genesis 3:15 is fulfilled when Jesus dies upon the cross. Jesus not only crushes Satan, but suffers for his people to bring about their redemption. As but one additional illustration of God’s redemptive promises being fulfilled in Christ, in Isaiah 7:14 we find this amazing prophecy: “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” The coming one is not only supernaturally conceived, he will be God in human flesh. This is why the Old Testament perspective on redemption is one of longing, anticipation, expectation, and hope.

When we come to the New Testament era, we immediately discover that something very dramatic and completely beyond all human expectation is taking place. In Matthew’s gospel, we find the historical record of the fulfillment of a number of these ancient messianic prophecies. In Matthew 1:18-23, we read these words: “Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, `Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.’ All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: `Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel’ (which means, God with us).”" - extracted from https://www.wscal.edu/blog/basics-of-the-reformed-faith-the-incarnation

Luciferian Education.




The Jesuit "Trojan Horse" Infiltration Of World Education

Education Of The Masses Is Corrupt And "Dumbed" Down!
* The Luciferian Jesuits Are Waging Relentless War Against Humanity!

Quote:

“One of the major purposes of the Jesuits was to destroy every trace of Protestantism and its principles, including religious freedom, republicanism, representative government, and an economy built around a strong middle class. Another purpose of the Jesuits was to greatly expand the power and control of the papacy throughout the entire world.”

– Bill Hughes (From his book The Enemy Unmasked)





Jesuit Teaching Strategy

​The Jesuits developed a diabolical method of teaching called "Learning Against Learning" which brings everything into question, using "relative" thinking to produce circular arguments. Education is taken down to the LCD, "lowest common denominator" where mediocrity is infused into children instead of a striving for "excellence." The student is taught to question and doubt the validity or possibility of any "absolute" principles. Everything is called into question and "truth" becomes "relative" to any situation where there are NO fixed answers!

The result is "FRUITLESS" arguments and debates based on "OPINIONS" based on unsubstantiated "ASSUMPTIONS" and "THEORIES" ending in disillusionment, anger and despair!

This reprobate mental condition exhibited widely today by a "brain washed" dumbed down, "snowflake" (spoiled) generation is prophesied in 2 Timothy 3: 7-8

"Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith."

also in 1 Timothy 6:20-21

"O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith."

Without a SOLID BIBLICAL foundation of "absolute" principles there is NO POSSIBILITY of EVER establishing TRUTH! None whatsoever!

The Christian "claim" that there are foundational universal principles upon which the Earth (creation) is founded, is "mocked" and thrown out. This "learning against learning" method effectively destroys any "hope" or "faith" the student has in spiritual "truth" as everything is reduced to "materiality" and life in the HERE and NOW! God the creator (first cause) is kicked out and evolution or "magic" is ushered in and taught as "science" truth, which is in reality, just another "belief" system (state religion) founded on "THEORIES," NOT empirical evidence.

Learning against learning is the prime cause for the dramatic increase in atheistic hedonism, apathy and aggression among the youth of the world. With the increase in atheism comes ungodly lifestyles and behaviours that are already impacting and eroding civilised societies everywhere. NO absolutes means NO boundaries or limits because humans are just "animals" without a "soul" and not subject to a God who hates "sin" and will judge every act one day in the future.

​Learning against learning "removes" God and his "absolutes" from the human equation, replacing it with empty religion and opens up the door to every "immoral" act because there is no FEAR of ETERNAL retribution or punishment!

This is a deadly illusion because NO ONE will escape the judgement of God!

NO ONE!




The TROJAN HORSE - Jesuit Ideology and Methodology Infiltrating Schools

There is a misperception by the public that private schools and public schools are vastly different. Private schools are meant to be "church" (mostly Catholic) based around "religious" values whereas public schools are secular, egalitarian and government funded. This is nonsense! The truth is, today, both sectors are controlled; private by the Jesuits and public also by the Jesuits through their MASONIC government hierarchy, populated by Jesuit trained academics and politicians who "obey" orders and direct the implementation of school curriculums! This is termed "Fifth Column" Infiltration and Subversion.

The same Luciferian agenda is being applied to education everywhere; there are 391 Jesuit schools in Hindu India alone! The introduction of relativism, the teaching of socially DESTRUCTIVE Cultural Marxist values such as Social JusticeGlobalismFeminism, Racial Integration, Environmentalism as well as Scientism ie. evolution, helio-centrism and space have all been inserted over decades into ALL curriculums eliminating alternative (creation) viewpoints and inciting social dissension and divisiveness  thus creating generations of godless, selfish, immoral people.

​Ultimately, if unchecked, this path can only lead to a societal "FASCIST" hell on Earth because there IS a point of NO RETURN!

The pagan Roman Catholic church and its religious fraternities (monks & priests) and sororities (nuns) had played a role for a long time in controlling education usually for royalty since the beginning of the "mediaeval" (Dark Ages) period (500 AD) in Europe. With the Protestant Reformation breaking forth in 1517 and the arrival of the "printing press" earlier in 1439 came a huge threat to Rome's power and influence over the dissemination of KNOWLEDGE and thus the "militant" Jesuit order was created in order to form an "offensive" (Counter Reformation) against the onslaught of Biblical truth and freedom that had destroyed the spiritual state of DARKNESS, "ignorance" and "fear" that the Roman Catholic church had kept the ordinary man in for so many centuries.

One of the long term strategies for world domination devised by the Jesuits in the 1500's was to co-opt the education of the children of sovereign nations in order to DESTROY nations from the "inside," exactly the same method employed by the Greeks with the TROJAN HORSE! All nations are right now being corrupted from "within" by godless Jesuit "atheistic humanist" principles being espoused to the young.

There is now a massive effort by the Jesuits to "indoctrinate" society as efficiently and quickly as possible! Even sexual identity is under assault as the Jesuits attempt to pervert and "invert" social norms thus WEAKENING the family ties that hold society together. They understand that a "debauched" and "sinful" society will come under the JUDGEMENT of God and be destroyed eventually just like Sodom and Gomorrah were.

God is patient but there is a point at which he INTERVENES sovereignly to PUNISH evil.
  



Today, elite Jesuit schools are churning out religiously atheistic graduates who are spiritually "bankrupt," materialistic, narcissistic and arrogant. Students graduating from government schools have experienced the same type of narrow, inbred dumbed down education where Jesuit "REVISIONIST" Histories and Helio-Centric SCIENTISM have been hammered into them. They are "smart" and "dumb" at the same time. They "know" something and "nothing" at the same time. They're "religious" but have no "spiritual" foundation and everything is "relative" to them based on "feelings" and "emotions." They live for "NOW" and to hell with "TOMORROW."

These young people have NO fear of God and do whatever "FEELS RIGHT" to them! Many of them are SJW "Fascists" unwittingly carrying out the orders of their New World Order Jesuit masters and thinking they are doing GOOD! They are so proud they seem to have forgotten that they CAN and WILL DIE! They don't understand that the Jesuits are loyal to no one and will eliminate them when they are of no further use. Having no "mind" of their own and no firm foundation of "truth" they become "useless idiots" fit only to become victims of their Jesuit "oppressors."

They are the end "result" of Satanic "INDOCTRINATION" by the Jesuit controlled education system and they DO NOT TOLERATE ALTERNATE VIEWPOINTS!
Bible Warnings About Deception

2 Peter 2:2, 12-13

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. But these, like irrational animals, creatures of instinct, born to be caught and destroyed, blaspheming about matters of which they are ignorant, will also be destroyed in their destruction, suffering wrong as the wage for their wrongdoing."

2 Thessalonians 2:9-11

The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false.”

FAKE NEWS AND THE REFORMATION

The present MASS MEDIA today is believed to be partisan and controlled by a so called Elite Group of influential People, a secret brotherhood. There is no doubt that there are information today that is being aired and broadcasted that is edited to hide the truth and the real story.




We find many misinformation and conspiracies to deceive the masses. Educational institutions today had been infiltrated to spread humanistic philosophies and to eliminate the truth about human history. To erase God in our history and mind. To educate everyone that God is unreal. To kill the true knowledge of God in every part and corners of the earth. To make a generation of Godless people but embracing idols and materialism, eliminating the Bible in many schools and to brainwash the people through the mass media; films, movies, TV series, facebook, youtube, podcasts and many more. Constantine's Christianity for hundred of years has been the head of this ugly monster. Today, this powerful institution has a new face. A new style and look using her tentacles to bring back again many under her skirt believing she is the true Church. A new order in the world is now in its final development, high tech and more captivating to the human senses. The god of this world is using his old technique to deceive again many. To tikcle your weaknesses, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. (1 John 2:16)



Constanstine's Christianity Exposed.
The Protestant Reformation during the 16th century was the major revolution that spearheaded this change. The false teaching of the Roman Church in the west was exposed in the light of the Holy Scriptures.

Martin Luther.
"Luther believed the Catholic Church was corrupt, and he sought to reform it. His 95 Theses was basically a list of 95 complaints against the Catholic Church. See, Luther believed that salvation was obtained through God's grace, and not through doing the ''works'' the church demanded; he also held that the Bible—and not the church—was the ultimate religious authority.

Luther's 95 Theses weakened the authority of the Catholic Church and laid the intellectual framework for modernism as we know it. The movable type printing press, invented some 80 years earlier, allowed Luther's 95 Theses to spread like wildfire. In towns and villages all over Germany, ordinary people were reading Luther's ''radical'' charges against the church.Many people think of the Protestant Reformation as only a religious revolution. In reality, it was so much more. Yes, its beginning was religious in nature, but the Reformation progressed to transcend religion. So why is the Protestant Reformation a big deal? It was a social, political, and economic revolution in the truest sense. It laid the intellectual framework upon which the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment were built. The Protestant Reformation led to modern democracy, skepticism, capitalism, individualism, civil rights, and many of the modern values we cherish today.The Protestant Reformation impacted nearly every academic discipline, notably the social sciences like economics, philosophy, and history."1

"Martin Luther, however, translated the Bible into German, the vernacular, or the language of the common people. Now ordinary people could read the Bible for themselves. Increasingly, the Bible became interpreted in new ways. Protestant theology emphasized marriage and family, the importance of hard work done for God's glory, and the value of education. Followers of Luther and the Protestant reformers that came after him in the 16th and 17th centuries, placed a strong emphasis on literacy. As a result of the Reformation, literacy increased throughout Europe, particularly among the common people.
With literacy came a newfound sense of skepticism: No longer would the masses blindly hold to what their priests told them; literacy meant that people could discover things for themselves... and not just ''spiritual'' things. People increasingly began to take an interest in secular, academic things. Just one of those things was history."2



"Guttenburg’s revolutionary printing press was central to the spread of new protestant ideas" - https://www.historyhit.com/facts-about-the-reformation/


"The printing press (invented by Johannes Gutenberg in 1440) changed the world during the Renaissance, and ushered in the Scientific Revolution, Enlightenment, and Modern Age.
Before the Printing Press Barons, Kings, and Churches ruled Europe, and the average citizen had little in the way of rights or education. The average person was sometimes able to read and write before the printing press. It is a myth they couldn’t read; it was common to have written words scrawled on walls, paper, and even dirt before the press. The skill of writing was less common) The printing press almost immediately changed culture, science, and politics. For the first time, many people had access to not only Plato, Aristotle, and Ptolemy, but access to Copernicus and the other early great thinkers of the of the Renaissance. There was also access to mass-produced single page pamphlets. The proliferation of pamphlets changed politics and religion, quickly spreading new ideologies. For example, Martin Luther’s “95 Theses” which began the Protestant Reformation was one such pamphlet."3




"In a work that is as much about the present as the past, Brad Gregory identifies the unintended consequences of the Protestant Reformation" and traces the way it shaped the modern condition over the course of the following five centuries. A hyperpluralism of religious and secular beliefs, an absence of any substantive common good, the triumph of capitalism and its driver, consumerism—all these, Gregory argues, were long-term effects of a movement that marked the end of more than a millennium during which Christianity provided a framework for shared intellectual, social, and moral life in the West.

Before the Protestant Reformation, Western Christianity was an institutionalized worldview laden with expectations of security for earthly societies and hopes of eternal salvation for individuals. The Reformation's protagonists sought to advance the realization of this vision, not disrupt it. But a complex web of rejections, retentions, and transformations of medieval Christianity gradually replaced the religious fabric that bound societies together in the West. Today, what we are left with are fragments: intellectual disagreements that splinter into ever finer fractals of specialized discourse; a notion that modern science—as the source of all truth—necessarily undermines religious belief; a pervasive resort to a therapeutic vision of religion; a set of smuggled moral values with which we try to fertilize a sterile liberalism; and the institutionalized assumption that only secular universities can pursue knowledge.

The Unintended Reformation asks what propelled the West into this trajectory of pluralism and polarization, and finds answers deep in our medieval Christian past."4

10 Great Consequences of the Protestant Reformation

 

 "1. The Protestant Reformation relocated spiritual and theological authority to Scripture.

In 14th century England, John Wycliffe challenged medieval practices such as absolution, pilgrimages, indulgences, and the doctrine of transubstantiation—the belief that bread and wine become Christ’s physical body and blood. He did this by appealing to Scripture: “Neither the testimony of Augustine nor Jerome nor any other saint should be accepted except in so far as it was based upon Scripture,” Wycliffe claimed. Later, at the Diet of Worms, Luther famously stated at the debate, “I am bound by the Scriptures I have quoted and my conscience is captive to the Word of God.” As these proclamations signal, the Reformers were appealing to the revelation of God as the final arbiter of truth, against the claim of papal infallibility from Rome and the abuse of tradition insofar as it conflicted with biblical teaching. (see this article by Mark Noll on the promise and problem with sola scriptura; although see the Reforming Catholic Confession, signed by 1000+ representatives of “Mere Protestants.”)

2. The Protestant Reformation challenged how persons gained right standing with God.

Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, and others, drawing especially on Augustine, began to see grace as the doctrine by which all others should be tested. Every dimension of salvation depended exclusively on God’s grace. This was in contrast to the late medieval edifice of penitential deeds that could be performed in order to absolve a person from sin or shorten their time (or their deceased family members’ time!) spent in purgatory. This distortion of Christian teaching, popularly called salvation by works, culminated in jingles that could be heard on town streets intended to stir lay people to action: “As soon as the coin in the coffer rings, the soul from purgatory springs.” Another one was: “Place your penny on the drum, the pearly gates open and in strolls mum.” A purgatory industry was set up to exchange monetary gifts for forgiveness. In sharp contrast, and in critical relief, the reformers taught that Christ’s work, when joined to faith, would justify a person (meaning, to forgive them).

3. The Protestant Reformation made liturgy and church services accessible to lay people.

For centuries worship was performed exclusively in Latin across Western Europe, in spite of its knowledge being limited to clergy and cultural elites. Some clergy themselves knew the language poorly, and thus recited the mass inaccurately and rather flippantly. Furthermore, while the Eucharistic bread was given to everyone present, the wine was limited to the clergy, as it was considered to be worthy of more reverence than the bread. Against these practices, the Reformation began to translate the Mass into local languages. Many leaders also stopped wearing special vestments that distinguished clergy from lay people. Finally, both bread and wine were once again shared with everyone eager to participate in the Mass. These measures helped lay people move from passive to active participants in worship.

4. The Protestant Reformation exposed profound corruption in church leadership.

Scott Kisker has cleverly pointed out that the Protestant Reformation was really a church split over a controversial building project. In a sense, it’s true—St. Peter’s basilica in Rome was being funded by the exploitative selling of indulgences. But the list of faults in late medieval church leadership goes further. Pontiffs (the official term for the office of pope) hired mercenaries to serve as standing armies. Bishops of the church were simultaneously serving as dukes and oversaw multiple sees in order to draw in more money. Some monasteries were turned into lavish grounds to house illegitimate children of the noble class. The centuries leading up to the Reformation exposed the profound corruption at work when church leadership is seduced by wealth and power. This context must be kept in mind when reformers leveled harsh criticisms, such as the title Antichrist, at church leaders." - extracted from 10 Great Consequences of the Protestant Reformation by Andrew Dragos READ The whole Article HERE.

2019 Winter Conference: The Heaven’s Declare

"On Monday, Reformation Bible College (RBC) hosted its 2019 Winter Conference, The Heaven’s Declare, to over three hundred attendees in Sanford, Fla., at Saint Andrew’s Chapel.



It’s amazing what Paul can see when he goes to Athens. He doesn’t see statues, he sees worldviews; he doesn’t see Athenians, he sees people in desperate need of the gospel. —Dr. Stephen Nichols

In the opening session, “No Mute Facts,” RBC President Dr. Stephen Nichols introduced the theme of the Winter Conference. Dr. Nichols spoke on general revelation, how it points us to God, and, therefore, how everything we encounter in His world—every fact—cries out that there is a Creator. Contrary to the worldviews that deny God’s existence and insist that reality does not or cannot point to a Creator, the Christian worldview acknowledges that creation is a road sign to God. To be notified when Dr. Nichols’ session is posted on our Youtube channel, subscribe today.

If Paul had an evangelistic ambition, it was to take the gospel of Christ to the center of the known world and to plant it there right in Caesar’s face. —Dr. Sinclair Ferguson

In the next session, “The Sense of the Divine,” Dr. Sinclair Ferguson spoke on the innate sense that God exists that humans are born with. John Calvin describes this as the sensus divinitatis, or “sense of divinity.” Scripture corroborates this idea, and this session will describe how we are to understand our faith and the world in relation to our innate sense of the divine. To be notified when Dr. Ferguson’s session is posted on our Youtube channel, subscribe today RBC faculty members then led respective breakout sessions on how God reveals Himself in nature, what that means for our culture, and how we can apply this knowledge as Christians.

Before the world began, an infinite, personal God existed; Someone was there. —Dr. John Tweeddale Academic Dean and Professor of Theology Dr. John Tweeddale spoke on the legacy of John Owen and the knowledge he had of general revelation. To be notified when Tweeddale’s session is posted on our Youtube channel, subscribe today.

The Belgic Confession speaks of God’s creation as “a most elegant book” through which God reveals Himself. —Dr. Keith Mathison

Professor of Systematic Theology Dr. Keith Mathison spoke on how the Psalms inform our doctrine of general revelation. To be notified when Dr. Mathison’s session is posted on our Youtube channel, subscribe today.

Paul is a man whose provocation turned to proclamation. —Dr. David Briones

Professor of New Testament Dr. David Briones provided an overview of Paul’s speech to the Athenians in Acts 17 and what this passage of Scripture can tell us about general revelation.

The suppression of the truth is the working out through human history of the fall and its consequences. It affects all humanity. —Dr. Albert Mohler

In the next session, Dr. Albert Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, spoke on how Scripture tells us that people suppress the truth in unrighteousness—that our sin blinds us to the reality of God and His righteousness. This session described the ways that we suppress the truth in our culture and how Christians can stand for the truth in our context. To be notified when Dr. Mohler’s session is posted on our Youtube channel, subscribe today. In our last session, Drs. Albert Mohler, Sinclair Ferguson, and Stephen Nichols answered questions from attendees on special and general revelation, apologetics, and other topics. To be notified when this panel session is posted on our Youtube channel, subscribe today. For more information about our college, visit ReformationBibleCollege.org." -  https://reformationbiblecollege.org




From the majesty of the sunset to the beauty of the stars, the whole world declares the glory of God. Yet despite this fact, humanity chooses to suppress the truth about our Creator's manifest glory. Christians, their eyes being opened, have a unique perspective on the world, for they know that creation is a reflection of our great God. This conference considers how God reveals Himself in nature, what that means for our culture, and how we can apply this knowledge as Christians.

A DOCUMENTARY OF PEDOPHILE CATHOLIC PRIESTS IN POLAND 2019



image taken from - Documentary on child sex abuse by Catholic priests stirs debate in Poland

The independent documentary movie by Tomasz and Marek Sekielski brothers. 

This is truth about the Catholic Church in Poland.

The movie was fully funded by viewers via the Patronite.pl platform.


“Why do priests commit such crimes? Why did the bishops not react as they should? Why, for years, did a conspiracy of silence prevail among the clergy?” journalist Andrzej Gajcy asked Monday on the news site Onet, voicing some of the uncomfortable questions confronting many Poles.

The primate of Poland has thanked the brothers who made the film, Tomasz and Marek Sekielski, for their “courage.”

“I apologize for every wound inflicted by the people of the church,” Archbishop Wojciech Polak said Saturday.

The Vatican’s ambassador to Poland, Archbishop Salvatore Pennacchio, also expressed sympathy for abuse survivors on behalf of both himself and Pope Francis.

“The pope is very concerned and we express sympathy and solidarity,” Pennacchio said.

Among others in the Polish church, the reactions were mixed. The archbishop of Gdansk, Leszek Slawoj Glodz, said he has better things to do than watch the film.

The Rev. Jacek Prusak, a Jesuit priest, called the church “a home for a herd of wolves in clerical collars” that would face judgment.

Most Poles identify as Catholic and have a powerful attachment to the church. They credit the Catholic Church with keeping their country’s language and culture alive during more than a century of foreign rule.

The late Polish pope John Paul II, who was made a saint, is revered both as a moral authority and for his opposition to communism.

But like many other countries, Poland has had to reckon recently with revelations about clergy who molested children. In March, Polish church authorities said they had recorded cases of 382 clergymen who abused 625 victims under the age of 18 since 1990.

The documentary presents new evidence that priests who were known to be pedophiles were transferred between parishes instead of pushed out of the church or referred to police.

One is the late Rev. Franciszek Cybula, who in 1980-1985 was the priest of a shipyard technician named Lech Walesa who founded Poland’s anti-communist Solidarity movement and became president after communism fell.

“I am so surprised that I do not know what to say,” Walesa said. “If I, as a Catholic, had known, would I allow such a thing? No way.”

The film opens with a 39-year-old woman, Anna Misiewicz, returning to a parish in Topola, a village near Krakow, to confront an elderly priest who molested her when she was about 7-years-old.

Fearful and wearing a hidden camera, Misiewicz tells the priest how his abuse still keeps her from sleeping at night. When she reminds him he had kissed her and used her hands to masturbate, the priest admits his wrongdoing with her and other girls." - READ the whole Article HERE.



The 121 minute long film is an independent production of Tomasz and Marek Sekielski, and was fully financed by Internet fundraising in a Polish "Patronite" service. The first of the brothers is an author of the script and director, the second is a producer. Adam Galica, Wojciech Jakubczak and Piotr Susin were responsible for videography, and Dariusz Mandes was an editor.

The film addresses the issue of responsibility of the Episcopal Conference of Poland for hiding pedophiles among priests from the law enforcement. It portrayed both new and old cases of the crimes. Accusations of pedophilia against Franciszek Cybula, the personal chaplain of the former President of Poland Lech Wałęsa and Eugeniusz Makulski, who took the initiative of building the Basilica of Our Lady of Licheń,were raised for the first time.

The authors invited several church dignitaries to participate, but the archbishops Wojciech Polak and Stanisław Gądecki refused and the cardinal Kazimierz Nycz, archbishop Sławoj Leszek Głódź and bishop Jan Tyrawa did not respond to the invitation. - MORE...

THE AMERICAN GOSPEL (2019)



AMERICAN GOSPEL: CHRIST CRUCIFIED (2019)

The gospel message of "Christ crucified" has always been offensive. In our culture it is common for preachers to soften the offense of the cross, and the attributes of God that are displayed in the person of work of Jesus Christ.  "American Gospel: Christ Crucified" explores how the paths of post-modernism and progressive Christianity lead to a different gospel, and a god created in our own image.
      "But we preach Christ Crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness..." (1 Cor. 1:23)
      
- We often hear the phrase, “Jesus died for our sins.” What does that mean? 
- Is the God of the Old Testament the same as the God in the New Testament? 
- Did God the Father kill Jesus? 
- Can a loving God also express wrath? 
- Why is hell necessary?



"American Gospel: Christ Alone" is a feature documentary that is 2 hours and 20 minutes in duration. The following is the first 40 minutes of the film, followed by testimony from viewers.

CONSTANTINE ANTICHRIST 8 - A False Gospel!

We have learned that Constantine's Christianity is a Luciferian Deception. A demonic deception to Infiltrate the People of God prior to the death of the Apostles. We know Satan transformed into an angel of Light so that he can ruin the works and doctrines of Christ. This is the best tool Satan can use to give false information to the early followers of Christ and manipulate them in his own evil way hence to worship a wrong God and a False Christ. During the REFORMATION another satanic bomb has been thrown in the middle of the camp of God's saints... a poison called Arminianism. -They are so called Born Again Christian. Beware of them... do not receive The false Gospel of Arminius into your heart!




"The truth is this: “Evangelical Arminianism” is not the theological equivalent of oat meal. It is not the theological equivalent of Frosted Flakes and milk.

“Evangelical Arminianism” is the theological equivalent of rat poison.

It does not bring life. It is the anti-gospel; the theological codification of self-righteousness. It is the notion God loves me because of me. God forgives me because of me. God chooses me because of me. It is anathema. It is a cursed doctrine for cursed souls portending a cursed destiny." - Reforming America Ministries



The “god” of Arminianism is Not Worshippable - by Dr. C. Matthew McMahon

A simple overview of what Arminius taught versus what the Bible teaches.

"Throughout the Old Testament God warns His church that false shepherds are under His judgment and condemnation. They lead the flock of God astray and teach false doctrines that are “empowered” by demonic lies and satanic ploys to tear people away from God, and rely on their own works for salvation. God says in Jeremiah 23:1, “Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!” Again, God states in Jeremiah 23:2, “Therefore thus says the LORD God of Israel against the shepherds who feed My people: “You have scattered My flock, driven them away, and not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your doings,” says the LORD.” Christ warned His disciples that deceivers would come into the fold and deceive many being ferocious wolves among the sheep of God’s chosen people. Matthew 7:15 says, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.” Paul spoke to the Ephesian elders and warned them in like manner in Acts 20:29, “For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.” The Apostle Peter echoes the same when he warns the church against false teachers who come in teaching destructive heresies. 2 Peter 2:1 states, “But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies…” Certainly, false teachers and false shepherds are a grave problem for the life and sanctifying vitality of the flock of God.

Not only did God, His prophets, His Son Jesus Christ, and Christ’s apostles warn the church that heresy and false teaching will enter the church, but the Scriptures demonstrate that such teaching will have success among a great many people. 2 Chronicles 18:21 is a very interesting passage that not only gives the indication that a demonic lying spirit would go out and deceive the king and his false prophets, but that God allowed this by saying the lying spirit would succeed in its task of deception, “So he said, ‘I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ And the Lord said, ‘You shall persuade him and also prevail; go out and do so.’” Christ states the same when he says in Matthew 24:11, “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.” The Apostle Paul follows suit and states, “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, (1 Tim. 4:1),” and “But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived (2 Timothy 3:13 ).” It is the duty of the Christian to be so thoroughly acquainted with the work of God and His redemptive plan through Jesus Christ that when deceivers come, the Christian may be able to defend his own mind against vain philosophy, heretical doctrine, and false teaching. As James exhorts in James 1:16, “Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.”

Christians should know the Word of God in an exemplary manner so that they can defend themselves against heresy and false teaching, knowing it is destructive and an abomination to the Lord. But oftentimes Christians succumb to being children of their age, and the disciples of those that teach them even if they are heretical teachers. They think that since Pastor “so and so” is a godly man, what he teaches “must” be right. And this, unfortunately, has been the reason that the heresy of Arminianism has thrived so violently across the last two hundred years of the unsuspecting contemporary church. But even in addition to knowing the Bible well, one of the secondary guards against biblical and theological heresy and false teaching is to simply know church history, or historical theology. If Christians knew where they came from, they would know why they believe what they do, and they would be able to discern true teaching from false teaching. If Christians knew that Arminianism is heretical, or that it was condemned as heresy by the Synod of Dordt in 1618-19A.D., they would be more apt to listen and discern whether they should believe it or not.

So where did this deviant teaching come from? It was spawned by a 16th century gentleman named James Harmensen, born in 1560. This was his Dutch derivation, but is more well-known by his Latinized name – James Arminius. Thus, this is where “Arminianism” was birthed as a succession of an older heresy which was called Pelagianism. In other words, Arminianism was a form of Pelagianism that was not as extreme as Pelagianism, but more subtly destructive. Pelagianism denied the fall of Adam as affecting men in any way. Arminianism did not go to that extreme, but did say men were not completely dead in sin. In both views, though, men work for their salvation by coming, of their own accord, to Christ, on their own strength, and they “decide” to follow Jesus. Grace is good, and grace is helpful, but it is man that actually makes the difference. The reader may be directed to Arminius’ work published by Baker Book House in a three volume set which will demonstrate and convey the sense of all that this short article represents on his theology and thoughts about “god.”

Arminius, after serving as minister for some time, was called to the University of Amsterdam to teach as a professor of theology on the condition that he would adhere to the Belgic Confession (a Reformed confession that upheld biblical ideas surrounding salvation, God, His decrees, the nature of Christ, and other important topics). Arminius pledged loyalty to the Confession when entering the professorship. However, though Arminius gave allegiance to the confession, he really did not believe it. He was a scandalous, double-minded, shadowy and insincere individual. After a year or two he was finally caught and outwardly charged with being a scandalous teacher. It was his practice to teach the doctrines of grace in alignment with the Confession in class, but then distributed private confidential manuscripts among his pupils that taught Arminianism. By this “double-mindedness” he was able to continue in his popularity, while at the same time he was infecting the students under him of the same errors of “Arminianism” which he really believed. The States General of the Netherlands sent deputies of the Churches to question him on this, and to discover whether the rumors were true. This would involve an open debate and discussion, and then the consequences of the discussion would be taken back to the National Synod to be discussed further as to what ecclesiastical action should take place. Arminius denied the “rumors” and he agreed to meet with the council on one condition: if they found anything wrong, they would not report him to the Synod. The deputies, in view of his subtle refusal, refused to pursue the discussion believing that Arminius was not being honest and forthright with them. Instead, sometime later, they summoned him to council with a reformed theologian named Classis. Arminius declined and would not subject himself to an open synod (obviously knowing he would be caught in a lie). This was his continued position from that time forward. His strategy was to win over the secular men of the state and university to gain enough people behind him before going “public” on his “new and radical” views. This is important to note since Arminianism, like its father Pelagianism, is the secular man’s salvation.

Arminius died in 1609 before he could ever be brought openly before a public Synod. Most orthodox pastors and theologians hoped that with the death of Arminius that Arminianism would die quickly. Unfortunately, his infectious doctrine had overwhelmed too many younger students, and a group called the Remonstrants arose soon after. In 1610 the Remonstrants organized into a body and set forth a “Remonstrance” to the States General of Holland, Denmark, Belgium and the Netherlands. The word “Remonstrance” means “vigorously objecting or opposing.” They vigorously objected and opposed accepted Christian truth, and instead desired to set forth their version of this new doctrine of “semi-Pelagianism.” The Synod of Dordt convened to examine the Arminian Remonstrance (their theological ideas set down on paper) as well as their Christian walk (their piety – or in other words, how their theology affected their “Christian” walk). Both their doctrine and life were “on trial.” The council was held for over a year. Arminianism was condemned as not only theologically deviant, but the liberal and openly abusive lifestyles of the Remonstrance gave practical application to bad theology. After the Synod convened in 1619, they gave the following censure by unanimous decision: They seriously and responsibly examined the Arminian tenants, “condemned them as unscriptural, pestilential errors,” and pronounced those who held and published them to be “enemies of the faith of the Belgic churches, and corrupters of the true religion.” They also deposed the Arminian ministers, excluded them and their followers from the communion of the church, suppressed their religious assemblies, and by the aid of the civil government, which confirmed all their acts, sent a number of the clergy of that party, and those who adhered to them, into banishment. They did not treat them as reprobate, but as those under ecclesiastical discipline. Arminianism had been banished from the land, though it thrived secretly, until a later time when it began to emerge and flourish again. It has now, for all intents and purposes, become the majority religious view of the contemporary church today. The American church overall has embraced the secular man’s religion.

What does Arminianism teach? Is the “god” of Arminianism the God of the Bible? No. Arminius did not plagiarize the bible; instead, he fabricated a brand new deity, or idol, for men to worship. The “god” of Arminianism is not the God of the Bible. For Arminius’ “god” loves everyone equally, and sent his “Son” to die for all men equally. This “god” did not decree the salvation of anyone in particular, and “the christ” of Arminianism did not die for anyone in particular. Instead Arminius’ “god” decreed and his “christ” died for making a “way” of salvation. The Bible, in refuting this, teaches quite a different God. God has predestined only the elect to salvation. These are those for who He “so loved” and “gave” in His beloved Son Jesus Christ (John 3:16). The Bible depicts Christ as the one who fulfills the works of the Covenant of Redemption and bestows, unilaterally, this effectual work in the Covenant of Grace through the power of the Holy Sprit only to those for whom He died. This is the basic Old Testament concept of sacrifice and atonement. Sacrifice and atonement are given on behalf of a particular person, or for the nation of Israel. It did not extend beyond those bounds. Jesus Christ died for His people, the elect. These are those that the Father has elected before the foundation of the world, and those He has predestined to everlasting life. As the Westminster Confession of Faith states, “These …men, thus predestinated, and foreordained, are particularly and unchangeably designed, and their number so certain and definite, that it cannot be either increased or diminished. (John 10:14-16, 27-28; 13:18; 17:2, 6, 9-12; 2 Tim. 2:19).” God is the ever powerful God who not only plans out the redemption of men, but actually secures that redemption through ordained means. The Westminster Confession of Faith continues when it says, “Those of mankind that are predestinated unto life, God, before the foundation of the world was laid, according to his eternal and immutable purpose, and the secret counsel and good pleasure of his will, hath chosen, in Christ, unto everlasting glory, out of his mere free grace and love, without any foresight of faith, or good works, or perseverance in either of them, or any other thing in the creature, as conditions, or causes moving him thereunto; and all to the praise of his glorious grace” (Eph. 1:4, 9, 11; Rom. 8:28-30; 2 Tim. 1:9; 1 Thess. 5:9; Rom. 9:11, 13, 15-16; see Eph. 1:5, 9, 11; 2:8-9; Eph. 1:6, 12). The “god” of Arminianism is impotent and unable to save anyone. Instead, the “god” of Arminianism “hopes” that some will come to Him, and “hopes” that some will be saved through His Son. In this way, Arminianism teaches that it is theologically and hypothetically possible that no one would come, and no one would be saved. Here, Arminius’ “god” relies on man to come to Him, and find salvation. The Bible speaks differently: Psalm 5:5, “The boastful shall not stand in Your sight; You hate all workers of iniquity.” Psalm 7:11, “God is a just judge, And God is angry with the wicked every day.” Psalm 11:5, “The LORD tests the righteous, But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates.” Matthew 11:27, “All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.” John 17:9-10, “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours. And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them.” Acts 2:47, “And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.” Acts 13:48, “Now when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and glorified the word of the Lord. And as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed.” Romans 9:10-13, “And not only this, but when Rebecca also had conceived by one man, even by our father Isaac (for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works but of Him who calls), it was said to her, “The older shall serve the younger.” As it is written, “Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated.” Romans 9:21-24, “Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor? What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory, even us whom He called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?” Ephesians 1:3-6, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He has made us accepted in the Beloved.”

Arminius also taught that his “god” can be frustrated by the will of man because men choose their own destiny and that “god” allows them to do what they want to do without interfering. Not only is this “god” later to be deemed the “god of deism”, but it demonstrates that Arminius’ “god” plans salvation in a way that may not be effectuated. This “god” has offered salvation, but cannot actually bring about the happiness of the creature since man is autonomous and has, as Arminius taught, “a free will.” This means that man’s neutrality (denying total depravity) in “willing anything” is based on a choice that is never inclined toward good or evil. Arminius though is very wrong not only about how salvation works, but the nature of man as well. This “neutrality” is actually a smokescreen. Not only is everyone born under the fall of Adam totally depraved and sinful, but their wills are never neutral. Men only have sinful inclinations (Gen. 6:5). They are not neutral in any choice they ever make. Neutrality would mean they have an aversion to good or evil, but the Bible teaches men are inherently evil as a result of Adam’s fall and disobedience. Romans 5:12 emphatically states, “…just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned…” Arminius taught that there was an island of righteousness in every man which was unaffected by the fall and thus able to do “good.” Grace, then, is a help, but as Pelagius also taught, not completely necessary since “god” has given all men “prevenient grace that aids them” in making a good decision to follow this “god” who does not interfere with their choice. The “god” of Arminius “offers salvation” to every sinner, and “he” does everything “he” can to aid them in “finding” salvation, but “he” will never convert them unless they desire to be converted. Thus, Arminius’ “god” is the ever-frustrated “god” that “hopes” men will come to “him” and heed “his” aid. It is easy to see that “his” offer of salvation and all the work “he” does in helping men with prevenient grace are frustrated at every turn since many people, in fact most people, refuse “his help”.

The Bible paints a very different picture of God in His work to save men. God “effectually” converts the wicked heart of man so that he can believe. But God does not do this for all men, only those for whom Christ died. In this, God sovereignly predestines, elects, and effectually calls men to salvation in His sovereign power. The Synod of Dordt said, “That some receive the gift of faith from God, and others do not receive it, proceeds from God’s eternal decree.” In this, Christ promised that none of the elect would ever be lost, but that all God desired to save would in fact be saved. Sinful men cannot save themselves, they need a true and real savior that converts and regenerates their heart from a heart of stone to a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:26 clearly states God’s converting power, “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” Christ in the same way explains that the Father “gives” life, and the Son “gives” life to those “they desire” to give life. John 5:21 states, “For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will.” One of the more classic Christological redemptive texts is John 6:37-40. Christ says, “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” Not that Christ might do this if men desire to come, but that He will do this as a result of His saving power and plan and they will come. Not everyone is a “child of God” or a “sheep of God’s pasture.” Jesus says in John 10:25-30, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me. But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.” In addition, the God of the Bible is sovereign over the flesh of all men. John 17:2 says, “…as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him.” The Apostle Paul says in Philippians 2:13, “…for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.” God does not hope men will come, He changes men so that they will come and they will believe.

Arminius also taught that his “god” will not regenerate a sinner who does not first choose “him” with his inherent “free will.” With Pelagius, Arminius said that all men are inherently free, and have a “free will”. The fall of Adam has not rendered them incapable of doing good things. With this will they can either follow “god” or not follow “god.” Yet, at no time will “god” ever violate their free will to make them come to “him” or change their heart first without their consent to do so. Arminius’ “god”, then, is at the beck and call of sinners when it comes to their eternal destiny.

The Scriptures demonstrate God in a completely different light than Arminius’ ideas. In making a pact and agreement with the members of the Triune Godhead, the Father promises to send the Son, the Son promises to complete the work given Him, and the Spirit promises to apply the work that the Son accomplishes. This is not a “hope” on the side of God; rather, it is established in God’s eternal decree. This is electing grace. The Synod of Dordt said in opposition to Arminius’ teachings, “Election is the unchangeable purpose of God, whereby, before the foundation of the world, He has out of mere grace, according to the sovereign good pleasure of His own will, chosen from the whole human race, which had fallen through their own fault from their primitive state of rectitude into sin and destruction, a certain number of persons to redemption in Christ, whom He from eternity appointed the Mediator and Head of the elect and the foundation of salvation.” The Westminster Confession of Faith states that, “Those of mankind that are predestinated unto life, God, before the foundation of the world was laid, according to his eternal and immutable purpose, and the secret counsel and good pleasure of his will, hath chosen, in Christ, unto everlasting glory, out of his mere free grace and love, without any foresight of faith, or good works, or perseverance in either of them, or any other thing in the creature, as conditions, or causes moving him thereunto; and all to the praise of his glorious grace.” Since God has done this, He will not simply “hope” that men come to Him. Instead, He ensures their belief by regenerating their hearts through his electing grace. The Confession states, “All those whom God hath predestinated unto life, and those only, he is pleased, in his appointed and accepted time, effectually to call, by his Word and Spirit, out of that state of sin and death, in which they are by nature, to grace and salvation, by Jesus Christ; enlightening their minds spiritually and savingly to understand the things of God, taking away their heart of stone, and giving unto them a heart of flesh; renewing their wills, and, by his almighty power, determining them to that which is good, and effectually drawing them to Jesus Christ: yet so, as they come most freely, being made willing by his grace.” Even the Belgic Confession, that which Arminius repudiated, though vowed to, says, “We believe that, all the posterity of Adam being thus fallen into perdition and ruin by the sin of our first parents, God then did manifest Himself such as He is; that is to say, merciful and just: merciful, since He delivers and preserves from this perdition all whom He in His eternal and unchangeable counsel of mere goodness has elected in Christ Jesus our Lord, without any respect to their works; just, in leaving others in the fall and perdition wherein they have involved themselves.” The Bible teaches that God sovereignly regenerates the elect sinner apart from the sinner’s choice. If God does not first regenerate the spiritually dead sinner, then that sinner can never come to faith in Jesus Christ. The Synod of Dordt taught in Article 1, “As all men have sinned in Adam, lie under the curse, and are deserving of eternal death, God would have done no injustice by leaving them all to perish and delivering them over to condemnation on account of sin, according to the words of the apostle: That every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may be brought under the judgment of God (Rom. 3:19). And: For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23). And: For the wages of sin is death (Rom. 6:23).” Fallen sinners do not desire goodness, salvation, or God for that matter, since their hearts are evil. As the Apostle said in Romans 3:12, “They have all turned aside; they have together become unprofitable; there is none who does good, no, not one.” God must “regenerate” the spiritually dead so that they may be able to follow Christ. This is done by faith, and faith is not some “free will” contribution that men may make towards their steps to coming to salvation. Instead, they are given faith, and have implanted faith, the seeds of faith, as a gift of God so that they can believe. God sovereignly imparts faith and the ability to exercise faith toward salvation in the sovereign act of regeneration. Christ made this very clear in John 3:3, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Very simply, Christ says that man is 1) unable to see the kingdom, 2) that he must be born again, and 3) if he is not born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. This “seeing” means “spiritually perceiving”. Unless the Holy Spirit first births one from above spiritually, they cannot see the kingdom. Thus, Arminius’ is wrong when he says that man must see the kingdom first before being converted. That is the opposite of what Christ taught. Christ insisted that men cannot go to heaven without first being born again by the Spirit. In fact, they cannot even “see” the kingdom unless they are first born again. Christ again says that man does not have the ability to come to God without His help in John 6:44, “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.” In this way Christ says to His disciples in John 15:16, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.” This salvation, or effectual working of God in the heart of sinners, is found all through the book of Acts and the work of God in the church after Christ’s ascension. Acts 11:18, for example, says, “When they heard these things they became silent; and they glorified God, saying, “Then God has also granted to the Gentiles repentance to life.” Certainly Paul’s letter reflect this same sovereign work of God. Romans 9:16 says, “So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy.” And also in Ephesians 2:1 he says, “And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins…”, and in Ephesians 2:8-10, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” He also uses a very helpful term, “granted,” in Philippians 1:29 for this same idea, “For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake.” Men are not the autonomous generators of “faith.” Faith is a gift given to them by God. As a matter of fact, Christ is said to be the Author of their faith, “looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2).

Arminius taught hypothetical universalism. This meant that Jesus Christ died on the cross for every individual person making it possible for them to have salvation, and for every person to be saved. However, Arminius affirmed that in Christ’s death no one was actually saved. Christ only made salvation possible through the universal atonement for each man. This, though, is very confusing at the least, and heretical at best. If Christ died for all the sins of all men, then why does God still hold them accountable for unbelief? Their unbelief is a sin. Christ died for all their sins. But their unbelief still sends them to hell. In light of what makes a “sacrifice on behalf of one” an actual sacrifice, this makes no sense whatsoever. Arminius did not even understand the nature of the atonement, or how “atonement” rendered the one atoned for guiltless and reckoned righteous by God’s declaration. In this way, though, Arminius taught that even though Christ died for all men, most people are lost. His atonement does not actually save them. They must first save themselves by exercising their wills to their own good – something the Christ of the Bible said they could not do without Him and the Holy Spirit (John 3:3, 3:5). This “god” has little power, no power in fact, to actually secure the salvation of anyone.

In differentiation to Arminius, Jesus Christ taught that none are lost for whom He died. John 6:37-40 says, “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 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.” In fact, the angelic proclamation demonstrates that Jesus will complete what He sets out to do, as shown in Matthew 1:21, “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” Jesus Himself says He dies for His sheep, “John 10:15, “As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.” Jesus does not die for any of the goats. Rather, He lays His life down for His friends in John 15:13, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” The church itself is bought with His blood – just the church – in Acts 20:28, “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” Paul the Apostle even remarks that marriage is much like the union between Christ and the church. Christ is married to His bride and gave Himself for His bride. Ephesians 5:25 says, “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.” Christ’s death, then, is what is theologically called a substitutionary atonement on behalf of His people. He died to save them, secure them, and bring them to glory. The Synod of Dordt concluded the same when they said, “Since, therefore, we are unable to make that satisfaction in our own persons, or to deliver ourselves from the wrath of God, He has been pleased of His infinite mercy to give His only begotten Son for our Surety, who was made sin, and became a curse for us and in our stead, that He might make satisfaction to divine justice on our behalf.” For them, He actually obtained salvation, and the Holy Spirit applies that salvation which God first decreed would take place for elect sinners. Jesus actually atones for the guilt of His people. Jesus said in Luke 19:10, “for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Not only does He seek and save, but he also reconciles His elect to God, “For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life” (Romans 5:10). He did not make a “way of salvation” but obtained salvation for his people as Hebrews 9:12 makes clear, “Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.” The Synod of Dordt follows this biblical outline and concluded, “For this was the sovereign counsel and most gracious will and purpose of God the Father that the quickening and saving efficacy of the most precious death of His Son should extend to all the elect, for bestowing upon them alone the gift of justifying faith, thereby to bring them infallibly to salvation; that is, it was the will of God that Christ by the blood of the cross, whereby He confirmed the new covenant, should effectually redeem out of every people, tribe, nation, and language, all those, and those only, who were from eternity chosen to salvation and given to Him by the Father; that He should confer upon them faith, which, together with all the other saving gifts of the Holy Spirit, He purchased for them by His death; should purge them from all sin, both original and actual, whether committed before or after believing; and having faithfully preserved them even to the end, should at last bring them, free from every spot and blemish, to the enjoyment of glory in His own presence forever.”

Arminius also taught that his “god” cannot secure salvation for anyone, and thus, those sinners that choose “him” may also subsequently fall away from grace after they have taken hold of it. In this way, Arminius’ “god” loses people to the devil and to eternal torment, due to their decision to “stop following” “him.” These wayward souls simply give up and reject their faith. Thus, salvation can be lost at any time.

The Scriptures not only defy the idea that the elect can lose their salvation, but completely teaches the opposite. Whatever God wants, by His good pleasure, He gets. This means that after God has sovereignly saved an individual, He does everything necessary to keep that individual in His eternal grace and under the blood of Christ. This is typically called the “preservation of the saint”. It demonstrates that those who persevere in the faith are those God preserves so that they cannot lose their salvation. Otherwise, like Arminius’ “god”, God would be impotent to bring His desires to pass. Jesus Christ taught that those who have eternal life will never lose it. John 5:24 states, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.” John 10:27-29 says, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.” Romans 8:29-30 explains that God will give His people everything they need to not only be saved, but finally glorified. “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.” Paul enters into an oratory of ecstasy when he proclaims in Romans 8:35-39, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Peter teaches the church that those who are saved are kept by God’s power for salvation. 1 Peter 1:5 says that Christians are those “who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” God is able to do this, and willing to do this and actually does do this for His saints. Jude 1:24-25 asserts, “Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen.”

The Bible condemns Arminius’ teaching as heretical. The Bible makes it exceedingly clear that different Gospels, counterfeit Gospels, are no Gospels at all and deserve condemnation, not admiration. Paul said in Galatians 1:8-9, “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.” Worshippers of a different “god” and different “gospel” are not going to be slapped on the wrist and sent to their room in heaven. Rather, they are going to be sent to hell for being idolaters. Idolaters do not enter heaven, as Paul said in Galatians 5:19-21, “Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” Idolaters are damned. Arminius taught a different Gospel and deviated even from what the common consent of biblical truth was in his day. He rejected the Belgic Confession which, at the time, was an important explanation of the Bible for the church, and instead gave birth, through secretly training his disciples, to the Arminian Opinions and Arminian Articles. Both these Remonstrant documents teach a different “god” and different “gospel”. Arminius was ultimately a closet Pelagian and deeply infected with Pelagius’ doctrines. In turn he infected others with a deviant variation of Pelagianism (called semi-Pelagianism) which now plagues the contemporary church all over the world. This aberration and deviancy is found in the preaching, teaching and books of such popular authors as Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, Joyce Meyers, Benny Hinn, Max Lucado, Chuck Smith, Dave Hunt, Chuck Swindoll, Billy Graham and many other “lime light” (but sorely misguided and misinformed) “preachers” of today. They are popular, yes. But this again demonstrates the same popularity that Arminius had with the “secular man” and the religion that catered to the flesh. The contemporary church today is not only accepting Arminius’ teaching, but running after it, selling it in their Christian bookstores (making a profit on heresy), teaching it in their seminaries (so that young and upcoming ministers affect the congregation they will one day pastor), and preaching it from their pulpits to the layman who trusts their pastor’s every word. Arminius taught the secular man’s religion – a religion of works by personal merit – and America is eating it up. Dr. John Owen called it the “brain child” of wickedness. Dr. Jonathan Edwards called it “deep darkness.” Rev. Augustus Toplady called it the “Road back to Roman Catholicism”. Westminster Divine Dr. Leighton called it “the last and greatest monster of the man of sin”. Rev. Christopher Ness called it an “abomination” and “chambers of imagery” (or fabrications). This writer, in like mind, calls it heresy. Suitably, the worship of this “other god” that Arminius created is summarized biblically as idolatry.

God had forbidden His people to worship idols. He still does. This has never changed. Idols are “representations” of Him in some “earthly form”, or they are fabricated gods of the debased and wicked human mind. God set down many commands and examples of forsaking idolatry in every form. God said in Leviticus 19:4, “Do not turn to idols, nor make for yourselves molded gods: I am the LORD your God.” God’s people have been prone to idolatry as a result of ignorance and accepting the teaching of the “gods” of neighboring cities and peoples. The Scriptures say of the Israelites in 2 Kings 17:12, “for they served idols, of which the LORD had said to them, “You shall not do this thing.”” Idols are basically a fabricated versions of what sinful men think God should be, or what a “god” might do for them. There are gods that help people have children called fertility gods, ones that help prosperity, cause agriculture to prosper, give kings power, and even require the worshipper to sacrifice their children for blessing. Other ideological gods take the form of worshipping money, work, family, an idea or ideal. The prophet Isaiah said in 2:8, “Their land is also full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made.” Whether an idol is a physical statue or an idea that one worships, idolatry is still committed. Heresy itself is idolatry of the mind.

Idols, by definition, are not to be worshipped. Not only are they not to be worshipped, they are never to be created to begin with. Whenever the God of the Bible is forgotten, or changed into some deviant idea, people worship a “useless, worthless” idol. As Jeremiah recorded in 18:15, “Because My people have forgotten Me, They have burned incense to worthless idols.” And Jonah was explicit when he said that those who worship idols forsake the mercy of God and forfeit salvation. Jonah 2:8 states, “Those who regard worthless idols forsake their own Mercy.” It is an unfathomable to wonder why people will turn to something worthless to worship it? Habakkuk the prophet wondered this as well when he said in Habakkuk 2:18, “What profit is the image, that its maker should carve it, the molded image, a teacher of lies, that the maker of its mold should trust in it, to make mute idols?” Think about the foolishness of idolatry. Someone cuts down a tree, makes an idol of it, and then bows down to worship it or pray to it. In the same way people sit around taking biblical ideas to ponder, ponder them wrongly, create a god of their own thoughts, write them down on paper, or publish them in a book, and people eat it up as gospel truth. The Apostle John exhorted the church never to fall into idolatry of any kind when he said in 1 John 5:21, “Little children, keep yourselves from idols.”

Whenever God’s people, or those leading God’s people, fell into idolatry, it provoked God to be exceedingly angry and to destroy those false teachers and those who forsook the Lord with their idolatry. 1 Kings 16:26 states, “For he walked in all the ways of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and in his sin by which he had made Israel sin, provoking the LORD God of Israel to anger with their idols.” In 1 Kings 21:26 it records, “And he behaved very abominably in following idols, according to all that the Amorites had done, whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel.” Even the Apostle Paul was moved in this same way when he saw the city of Athens given over to idolatry in Acts 17:16, “Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was provoked within him when he saw that the city was given over to idols.” God hates idolatry of every kind, and His people should as well.

Think about the logic of worshipping an idol. Physical and mental or ideological idols are relatively the same in substance – they are mute, impotent, debased fabrications and inventions of the fallen and depraved mind worshipped by the fallen sinner. Whether an idol is seen or thought makes little difference. Idolatry is committed when God’s people have wrong thoughts about Him, how much more when entire theological systems are created in lieu of a new fangled idea or trumped-up forgery! Idols are not worshippable. They hold no inherent value and therefore cannot be worshipped as “the Highest Good.” They are not “worthy” to be worshipped. Rather, they should be rejected, abolished, banished, and destroyed. Idols do bio good or have any real consequence except that they pull people away from the One, True, Living God. They have a negative, sinful affect on people, not a positive, sanctifying affect. They damn those who would rather worship the idol than worship the Triune Godhead.

Even though Arminianism is a theological idea, that idea has filtered down into the “god” most people worship throughout Christendom today. The “god” of Arminianism, though, has no inherent value, is impotent, frustrated, incapable of securing salvation for anyone, and is thwarted by the insignificant whims of mere mortals. That “god” is valueless; worthless. It is a god that ought not to be worshipped for any reason. That “god” is not worthy of worship. For the thinking Christian who has had even the most minimal contact with the biblical God and Creator of the universe, the Arminian “god” is not worshippable for him. Christians should simply not be able to worship such a gross misrepresentation of the God of the Bible. Many people are ignorantly spending week after week, and worship service after worship service in serving an idol, and the True God of the Bible is angry with them. Does ignorance excuse them? God says “No.” As a matter of fact, God promises to reject, forsake and finally destroy those who are ignorant about Him. Hosea 4:6 states, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.” Not only will God forget the one worshipping in ignorance something that ought not to be worshipped, but He will even forget their children and visit the iniquity of the fathers to the third and fourth generation. In other words, God is very serious about the way He is to be worshipped and understood! In precluding the Israelites to worship strange idols or fabricated ideas about God, the Lord said this in Exodus 20:4-5, “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me.” God equates idolatry with hating him. Arminius’ doctrine demonstrates that he and his followers hate God. By their ignorance, or willful disobedience in following after an idolatrous “god”, the Lord Himself says they hate Him. It is apparent, then, that the “god” that Arminius created cannot be worshipped without enacting God’s fervent jealousy and vengeful judgment.

A warning to the reader:

It may be that you are an Arminian. I am very saddened that you have been caught up in thinking that Arminius’ “god” is the real God. However, you have been duped. Satan has used his false teacher to dupe you, along with much of the church today. You are not alone, but you are certainly not in a safe place. Arminianism is darkness, wickedness, evil, and heresy of the worst kind – and you have bought into it. Even scarier, God has allowed you to believe a lie (2 Chronicles 18:21). That should cause you to tremble. Take the Scriptures to heart; as 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 explains, “God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” If that is not a scary thought for you, dear reader, I do not know what is more frightful. Not only are you believing a lie, God has sent it to you that you may be blinded and condemned in unrighteousness!

Yet, do not lose hope. You have been confronted with the truth of the God of the Bible in this article, and God may indeed spare you an eternal condemnation if you would repent of your idol.

Arminians are of different stripes. Some people in Arminian churches may be truly converted, ignorant of their church home, and ultimately the Lord will rescue them out of their ignorance for He promises He will not allow His little ones to perish (such a rescue can come from Scriptural truth used in a simple internet article!). Such Arminians, if they may even be called that, are newly regenerated, but as they spend time in God’s word, they will see the error of those who preach and teach a different Gospel, maybe even the errors that they are currently holding. Ultimately they will have to leave their church to find a biblical church if they are truly convicted about the truth of the Word of God. They will leave and will learn the truth because they have the ears of s sheep that hear their Shepherd.

Secondly, there is the Arminian who knows “enough to be dangerous” and is wrestling with understanding the differences between the “god” of Arminianism and the God of the Bible. If you have just read through this article, and were an Arminian of the first flavor, now you are an Arminianism of the second camp. That makes life exceedingly dangerous for you. The truth has been given to you and the outcome of your choice will determine whether the Spirit has truly converted you or not. Will you follow an idol, or the true God of the Bible? If you continue in your idolatry following after Arminius’ deformed “god”, and you do not repent, God will judge you on the day of your death for your idolatry. The Scriptures say idolaters do not go to heaven. Thus, according to the Scriptures, you will be damned. You must recognize the fact now that you are serving a “god” that cannot be worshipped, no, that ought not to be worshipped. God forbids it. So, what will you do?

Thirdly, it may be that you are a staunch Arminian. You are sure Arminius was right. Or maybe you have never even heard of “Arminianism” but your theology is the same as Arminius. Regardless of whether he came up with his theologically deformed ideas, or you came up with those same deformed ideas, they are still heresy and have been condemned by the orthodox church for hundreds of years. Yet, if you took but an hour or two to skim through Arminius’ works, you would find 1) that he probably thought through all this far more intricately than you have, and 2) that your theology is much the same as his and of his Remonstrant disciples. Repentance for you is even harder since you have been serving and worshipping an idol for so long. The longer one remains in idolatry, the harder it is for them to break free from it, especially if their theology is going to have to be relearned and remolded to conform to the Truth of the Word of God. Your whole world will be turned upside down. It is difficult to believe that everything you have believed is really a lie. Be warned though, the Pharisees did not like the kingdom that Christ brought in. They would have rather had their own fabricated “god” and “kingdom”, than Christ’s God and Kingdom. You are just like them if you reject and rebel against the Truth of the God of the Bible. Jesus came to teach the truth, and they rejected the truth because they were not His sheep. Are you His sheep?

It may even be that you are saying, “But I thought I was believing in the God of the Bible!” Alas, it is most sad that you think so because that simply gives way to demonstrating the quicksand you have fallen into. And it will be very hard and very difficult to accept that you are wrong. Such an “error” has eternal consequences to it. So it would behoove you to make some changes in your thinking, and repent of your current idolatry to serve the Living God. Will you do what the Remonstrants did and decide to reject the God of the Bible for their own “version” of God? If you worship the “god” of Arminianism, of even the “christ” of Arminianism, you must repent and acknowledge the reality that you do not worship the God and Christ of Scripture. You have been sorely deceived in your idolatry! Sure God was right when He rebuked His people for being “destroyed for a lack of knowledge.” Study the Scriptures and learn of the True Christ. Pray for grace to repent, and ask Christ, the Christ of the Bible, to change your heart and mind and to understand the truth of His Word. If you are sincere, He will teach you. If you desire, He will send His sovereign grace to you to aid you."  Source: https://www.apuritansmind.com
