    “because it is her body, not mine and not yours”

    That is a LIE. According to the Bible her body IS NOT her own and the child’s body is not hers either.. Both bodies belong to the Lord. (1 Cor 6:19) I know you have been taught that your body is your own to do with as you please but that is not true. Your body belongs to God.

    “One can be ‘spirit led’ and still realize that the mother of the fetus has the right to abort”

    Wrong again. No human being has the “right” to murder another human being. Scripture says

    1 John 3:15
    “……you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.”

    Jesus also warns us in scripture that whatever we do to someone else we also do that to Him.

    Would you slice, cut and rip Jesus body into pieces so that the bloody remains can be suctioned into a waste bin for disposal?

    Murdering ANY defenseless human being is evil. Murdering babies is especially evil (that’s what the pagans used to do)

    I know that you sincerely believe that the Holy Spirit has enlightened you “grasp the truth of very complex issues” and “granted you and others license to murder babies” because you are already “saved” but that is not the Holy Spirit leading you….. it is pure evil, murdering babies inside their mother is PURE EVIL. I pray to God that you come to know the truth before it’s too late.

    Excellent article. Lots of folks coming unhinged over this.

    The writer is simply pointing out that many people in this country place more importance on homosexuals getting cake than on babies getting to live.

    definitely worth noting…..

    Lord Forgive Us…..

    And to think there are “Christians” who are pro-abortion.

    How is it possible to have the Holy Spirit dwelling within you and to be in favor of slicing and tearing an innocent, defenseless child to pieces inside the mothers womb and suctioning the body parts into a trash can? That is PURE evil.

    The teaching that became the basis for Oneness Pentecostalism can be traced back to a Pentecostal Camp meeting held in Arroyo Seco, California. A Pentecostal pastor named John Scheppe had what he believed was a divine revelation from God. As he meditated that night, he believed God revealed to him that baptism must be done in the “name of Jesus only” and not in the name of “the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.”

    Like most cult leaders, his revelation and “new doctrine” did not come as the result of the careful study of Scripture but instead was based on a subjective revelation he believed to be from God. Soon after, several other Assembly of God pastors began teaching this “new revelation” that would become the basis for Oneness Pentecostalism and “Jesus name only baptism.”

    Pentecostalism is a fairly modern movement within Christianity that can be traced back to the Holiness movement in the Methodist Church in the early 1900′s

    There are approximately 170 different denominations that identify as Pentecostal.

    The first widespread use of tongues was at a revival in Topeka, Kansas, in January 1900, led by Charles Parham.

    Parham and his student William Seymour eventually parted ways, [because Parham believed that many of the Azusa Street manifestations were of the flesh, or perhaps even demonic.]

    By 1909, Seymour had excluded all but African-Americans from holding office and the ministry eventually faded into history.

    Oneness Pentecostals do not believe in the Trinity and affirm that baptism should be done in Jesus’ name only. Another tenet of this group is the necessity of speaking in tongues as evidence of salvation. This group formed the United Pentecostal Church and the Apostolic Pentecostal church among others.

    The Assemblies of God was founded in 1914 under the leadership of Eudorus N. Bell. The key difference in doctrine for this group is that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is available for anyone, regardless of attaining sanctification.

    What are we to make of this movement? ……These earnest believers wanted to run their race faithfully ………..As that earnestness gave way to emotional religious fervor, doctrines were developed to explain and support the emotions and experiences. For many today, the emphasis is on the excitement, the experience, or the new word of prophecy.

    Some of the questionable foundations laid by John Wesley (e.g., a second blessing of perfection) paved the way for later Pentecostal doctrines of new works of the Spirit.

    Some Pentecostals [allow experience to trump scriptural teaching and attempt to conform Scripture to what they “know by experience.”]

    But fervent experience, even when it involves miracles, is not the test of true faith (seeMatthew 7:22–23). Peter affirmed the value of Scripture over experience when he said, “We also have a more sure Word of prophecy, to which you do well to take heed, as to a light that shines in a dark place” (2 Peter 1:19).

    Martin Luther

    “Who, but the devil, has granted such license of wresting the words of the holy Scripture? Who ever read in the Scriptures, that my body is the same as the sign of my body? or, that is is the same as it signifies? What language in the world ever spoke so? It is only then the devil, that imposes upon us by these fanatical men. Not one of the Fathers of the Church, though so numerous, ever spoke as the Sacramentarians: not one of them ever said, It is only bread and wine; or, the body and blood of Christ is not there present.”

    “Surely, it is not credible, nor possible, since they often speak, and repeat their sentiments, that they should never (if they thought so) not so much as once, say, or let slip these words: It is bread only; or the body of Christ is not there, especially it being of great importance, that men should not be deceived. Certainly, in so many Fathers, and in so many writings, the negative might at least be found in one of them, had they thought the body and blood of Christ were not really present: but they are all of them unanimous.” -Luther’s Collected Works, Wittenburg Edition, no. 7 p, 391

    Jesus

    John 6:32-33
    Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the TRUE BREAD from heaven. For the BREAD of God is the BREAD that comes down from heaven and gives life
    to the world.”

    John 6:51
    I am the living BREAD that came down from heaven. Whoever EATS this BREAD will live forever. THIS BREAD is MY FLESH which I will give for the life of the world.”

    John 6:53
    Very truly I tell you, unless you EAT THE FLESH of the Son of Man and DRINK HIS BLOOD, you have NO LIFE IN YOU.

    Jesus

    John 6:54
    Whoever EATS MY FLESH and DRINKS MY BLOOD has eternal life, and I WILL RAISE THEM UP ON THE LAST DAY.

    John 6:55
    For my FLESH is REAL food and my BLOOD is REAL drink (does Jesus mean symbolic whenever He says “real”?)

    John 6:56
    Whoever eats my FLESH and drinks my BLOOD REMAINS IN ME AND I IN THEM

    John 6:57
    Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who FEEDS ON ME will live because of me

    Matt 26:26
    Jesus took BREAD, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and EAT; THIS IS MY BODY.”

    Matt 26:27-28
    Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. THIS IS MY BLOOD”

    Saint Paul

    1 Cor 10:16
    Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ?

    1 Cor 11:27
    Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning againts the body and blood of the Lord. 

    1 Cor 11:28-30
    Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without
    recognizing the body eats and drinks condemnation on himself. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have
    died.

    Saint Ignatius (student of John the Apostle) 110AD

    “They abstain from the Eucharist and from prayer, because they do not admit that the Eucharist is the flesh of our Savior Jesus Christ, the flesh which suffered for our sins and which the Father, in His graciousness, raised from the dead.” -Letter to the Smyrnaeans, paragraph 6. circa 80-110 A.D.

    “I have no taste for the food that perishes nor for the pleasures of this life. I want the Bread of God which is the Flesh of Christ, who was the seed of David; and for drink I desire His Blood which is love that cannot be destroyed.”
    -Letter to the Romans, paragraph 7, circa 80-110 A.D.

    Saint Justin Martyr 150AD

    “This food we call the Eucharist, of which no one is allowed to partake except one who believes that the things we teach are true, and has received the washing for forgiveness of sins and for rebirth, and who lives as Christ handed down to us. For we do not receive these things as common bread or common drink; but as Jesus Christ our Savior being incarnate by God’s Word took flesh and blood for our salvation, so also we have been taught that the food consecrated by the Word of prayer which comes from him, from which our flesh and blood are nourished by transformation, is the flesh and blood of that incarnate Jesus.” -First Apology, Ch. 66, inter A.D. 148-155.

    Saint Irenaeus 180AD

    ‘So then, if the mixed cup and the manufactured bread receive the Word of God and become the Eucharist, that is to say, the Blood and Body of Christ, which fortify and build up the substance of our flesh, how can these people claim that the flesh is incapable of receiving God’s gift of eternal life, when it is nourished by Christ’s Blood and Body and is His member? As the blessed apostle [Paul] says in his letter to the Ephesians, ‘For we are members of His Body, of His flesh and of His bones’ (Eph. 5:30). He is not talking about some kind of ‘spiritual’ and ‘invisible’ man, ‘for a spirit does not have flesh and bones’ (Lk. 24:39). No, he is talking of the organism possessed by a real human being, composed of flesh and nerves and bones. It is this which is nourished by the cup which is His Blood, and is fortified by the bread which is His Body. The stem of the vine takes root in the earth and eventually bears fruit, and ‘the grain of wheat falls into the earth’ (Jn. 12:24), dissolves, rises again, multiplied by the all-containing Spirit of God, and finally after skilled processing, is put to human use. These two then receive the Word of God and become the Eucharist, which is the Body and Blood of Christ.

    Saint Athanasius 373AD
    You shall see the Levites bringing loaves and a cup of wine, and placing them on the table. So long as the prayers of supplication and entreaties have not been made, there is only bread and wine. But after the great and wonderful prayers have been completed, then the bread is become the Body, and the wine the Blood, of our Lord Jesus Christ. ‘And again:’ Let us approach the celebration of the mysteries. This bread and this wine, so long as the prayers and supplications have not taken place, remain simply what they are. But after the great prayers and holy supplications have been sent forth, the Word comes down into the bread and wine – and thus His Body is confected.’,

    Saint Cyril 348AD

    “Contemplate therefore the Bread and Wine not as bare elements, for they are, according to the Lord’s declaration, the Body and Blood of Christ; for though sense suggests this to thee, let faith stablish thee. Judge not the matter from taste, but from faith be fully assured without misgiving, that thou hast been vouchsafed the Body and Blood of Christ.” -Catechetical Lectures [22 (Mystagogic 4), 6]

    Saint Jerome (wrote the Latin Vulgate) 398AD

    “After the type had been fulfilled by the Passover celebration and He had eaten the flesh of the lamb with His Apostles, He takes bread which strengthens the heart of man, and goes on to the true Sacrament of the Passover, so that just as Melchisedech, the priest of the Most High God, in prefiguring Him, made bread and wine an offering, He too makes Himself manifest in the reality of His own Body and Blood.” -Commentaries on the Gospel of Matthew [4,26,26] 398 A.D.

    Saint Augustine 400AD

    “You ought to know what you have received, what you are going to receive, and what you ought to receive daily. That Bread which you see on the altar, having been sanctified by the word of God, is the Body of Christ. The chalice, or rather, what is in that chalice, having been sanctified by the word of God, is the Blood of Christ.” -Sermons, [227, 21]

    Saint Cyril of Alexandria 444AD

    “We have been instructed in these matters and filled with an unshakable faith, that that which seems to be bread, is not bread, though it tastes like it, but the Body of Christ, and that which seems to be wine, is not wine, though it too tastes as such, but the Blood of Christ … draw inner strength by receiving this bread as spiritual food and your soul will rejoice.” -Catecheses, 22, 9; “Myst.” 4; d. 444AD

    Over 1500 years of historical proof up to and including the father of the Protestant reformation Martin Luther.

    P.S. To all of the other Protestants in here you see there are those in the Protestant movement who deny that you are truly saved because you do not speak in tongues. This is contrary to the Bible which clearly states that not all have the gift of tongues and LOVE transcends all of the gifts.

    If this is true, and I have no reason to believe it is or is not, it is irrelevant to my point. Teaching people they can reject Gods commands and live according to the flesh and still enter eternal life is a lie that is leading many souls away from obedience and faith and into disobedience and death.

    Plain and simple, the “Saints” are those who keep the commandments and keep faith in Jesus Christ (Rev 14:12) All of the Protestant mental gymnastics and twisting of Pauls writings (2 Peter 3:16) will never change this biblical truth.

    Rev 14:12
    Here is a call for the endurance of the SAINTS, THOSE WHO KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD and THEIR FAITH IN JESUS.

    I encourage you to consider the WHOLE counsel of God.

    P.S. it’s now been over 3 months and you still have not addressed Pauls teaching in

    1 Cor 11:27-30

    Why does Paul warn that anyone who eats the bread or drinks the cup without recognizing the BODY AND BLOOD OF OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST eats and drinks condemnation on themselves and is GUILTY OF SINNING AGAINST THE BODY AND BLOOD OF THE LORD?

    Going forward I will not respond to any more of your posts until you answer that question, you are evading the truth.

    Who wants to work out their salvation with fear and trembling when they can just “hide” behind Jesus and continue to look at pornography? Conversely the catholic doctrine of carrying your cross (denying yourself daily and OBEYING God in thought, word and deed) is in direct conflict with our sinful nature and VERY unappealing.

    Simply put it is MUCH easier to be a (John 3:16) Protestant than it is to be a (Matt 19:17), (Isaiah 59:2), (James 2:24), (Matt 5:20)(Matt 7:21), (Luke 11:28), (John 8:51), (John 14:15), (John 15:14),(Rom 2:13), (Rom 6:22), (Eph 5:5), (1 Cor 10:12-13),(Gal 5:19-21) catholic. The former recreates God in his own image living according to the flesh. The latter cooperates with Gods grace becomming born again, a new creation in Christ, transformed into a child of God who lives according to the spirit, in accordance with Gods will. Protestantism denies this is even possible thereby rejecting Gods grace and blaspheming the Holy Spirit. This causes Jesus umbrage.

    That being said it is far more likely that the solas (which do not require obedience to God and allow every individual to determine for themselves what is or is not essential for salvation and to continue to live according to the flesh) have led many people out of the catholic church and back into bondage.

    ignore the commandments of God and live according to their own will satisfying their flesh and still enter the kingdom of heaven. This is a lie.

    I suppose when Jesus told the people that even looking at a woman lustfully was adultry that made them very angry. I am simply spreading the same message that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ delivers to us.

    “if you want to enter life, keep the commandments”.

    If this causes you or anyone else umbrage …..so be it, your umbrage would be better directed towards sin which leads to death.

    “Very few actually follow the First Century model for the “Church”.

    Of course not, the road to eternal life is narrow and few are on it (Matt 7:13-14)

    “many more of the atheists I have known came from the Roman Catholic Church than the Protestant ones”

    That’s not at all surprising,

    2 Peter 2:20-21
    if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world by the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and are overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. For it would be better for them not to have known THE WAY OF RIGHTEOUSNES, than having known it, to turn away from the holy commandment handed on to them. 

    “the ‘solas’ can’t be blamed for them falling away.”

    Sure they can. The carnal christian doctrine (obeying God is not required) is very appealing to our broken and sinful nature.

    @JGraham IIl

    ” there were atheists in OT days, long before the ‘solas’”

    That is a straw man. I never said there weren’t atheists in the OT. You will not see a single verse in the OT or the NT where Jesus or any Apostle EVER told ANYONE that the way to eternal life was to read the scriptures and decide for themselves what is and is not essential for salvation or to continue to live in sin denying the blood that ransomed them from bondage to sin which leads to death. Jesus sent out the Apostles to teach obedience to God and he never once mentioned handing out Bibles or scripture or taught that people could simply reject Gods commands and hide behind Him on the day of judgement.

    “I also take umbrage with your assertion that you do not intend to provoke anger but thought, all while slandering the ‘entire Protestant framework’”

    Umbrage noted.

    SLANDER – the action or crime of making a false spoken statement damaging to a person’s reputation.

    I stated that the foundation of the Protestantism is scripture alone. Is this a false statement? Do you deny this? Where is the slander in stating a fact? The scribes and pharisees falsely accused Jesus of slander and blashemy because He told them they were putting aside the commands of God and living in sin. In this regard I am in good company and have more in common with Jesus whereas you teach people they can put down their cross,

    So abortion, gay marriage, adultery, fornication, divorce etc is just “human stuff”

    This is the typical Protestant response when faced with substantive issues that Protestants disagree about. You try to gloss over the division and confusion as if things like abortion and gay marriage are just “human stuff” that dont really matter to God.

    Making excuses doesn’t address the fundamental issue, it just refuses to acknowledge it.
