    “I love what Paul wrote”

    Roger that, Paul was very clear, unfortunately many Pastors today cherry pick specific verses from Pauls letterS but completely ignore Pauls explicit warnings about sinning and not inheriting the kingdom of heaven.

    Gal 5:16-17
    So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other
    Gal 5:19-20
    so that you are not to do whatever you want.The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

    @byfaith

    Thank you for a very informative post.

    Oddly enough it was reading Luthers (strange) writings that triggered my interest in looking deeper into the history of Christianity.

    Cardinal Newman was right when he said “to be deep in history is to cease to be Protestant. I also was very surised to discover that Luther and Calvin both affirmed and denied much of what Evangelicals/Protestants believe today.

    It’s rather fascinating that Protestants trust their eternal salvation to Luthers teaching that salvation is by faith alone (remaining faithful to Jesus Christ is not required) considering the Bible says that we ARE NOT justified by faith alone.

    When I was an Evangelical/Protestant It suddenly occured to me that there really was no difference between trusting in Martin Luther or trusting in Joseph Smith.

    Both were mere men who believed that God spoke directly to/through them and specifically chose THEM to “restore true Christianity.”

    The same is true for every single church/ denomination that has been started since the reformation. Only one church can trace its origin back to Jesus and the Apostles through the physical laying on of hands.

    All other churches/denominations trace their origin back to a self proclaimed messenger of God/Prophet.

    The gates of hell will never prevail.

    One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic.

    Please back up your statement with biblical ,historical proof/evidence.

    Protestants removed 7 books from the Bible that were in the Septuagint (the Bible that Jesus and the Apostles had), the Latin Vulgate, the ORIGINAL 1611 King James Bible, the Geneva Bible, the Gutenberg Bible and EVERY single Bible published until 1666.

    Both of the principle reformers Martin Luther and John Calvin believed in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist and Mary’s immaculate conception and her perpetual virginity.

    Everything that you “know” about “Christianity” you learned from men who have passed on to you the traditions of men.

    I encourage you to study the TRUE/FACTUAL documented history of Christianity as written by the early Christian martyrs themselves – who learned from the Apostles and their disciples (such as Ignatius of Antioch who learned from the Apostle John)

    You will find that you have been lied to and taught a false, manmade Gospel (heresy) that was invented over 1500 years after the last Apostle died.

    Salvation is not (and has never been) by “faith alone” God gave us 10 COMMANDMENTS not 10 SUGGESTIONS.

    JAMES 2:24
    you see that a man is justified by works and NOT BY FAITH ALONE.

    Obedience to God is truth, the truth will set you free

    @p8riot

    p.s.

    Joseph Smith also ostensibly (according to him) “translated” some ancient Egyptian fragments into what is “the book of Abraham” and said that it was written by Abraham himself. . Problem is the fragments were not written by Abraham and they dont even mention Abraham. Lastly Joseph Smiths “translations” are not only completely incorrect but they are absurd.

    To my understanding (its been a few years) the original documents (the Kirtland Papers) have ben locked in a vault in Salt Lake city since around 1855.

    I encourage you (if the truth matters) to inquire your elders about the Kirtland Papers and ask yourself if Joseph Smiths “translation” of “the book of Abraham” was totally incorrect why do trust his “translation” of golden tablets that nobody has ever seen? Supposing the tablets did actually exist Joseph Smiths “translation” of “the book of Abraham” should raise some serious questions in your mind…….then again, maybe not.

    @rapture

    Not sure if you read “the original” 1611 KJV Bible or the new KJV that is missing 7 books (that were removed around the same time that the “rapture” teaching was introduced but in every single account  in the Bible where people are “left” (or left behind) the ones who are “taken” are destroyed and the ones who are “left” or  “left behind” are Gods chosen (they are spared Gods wrath or “saved” from destruction)

    Not a single time in the Bible are the “saved” taken away, the “saved” are ALWAYS “left behind”

    You have stated that the OT contains or foreshadows the NT and the NT fulfills/reveals the OT.   That being said If your hermeneutic is consistent (God is immutable and unchanging) then the ones who are “taken away” are the evil ones.  (All those who break the law are arrested and “taken” away to prison)

    Not a single verse in the original 1611 KJV Bible or the original Geneva Bible or the original Gutenberg Bible or the Septuagint or the Latin Vulgate or the Codex (or any Bible for that matter) EVER depicts the condemned being “left” or “left behind”  ONLY the saved are left behind.  Not a single event/verse in the Bible foreshadows the evil ones being left or left behind.  

    Lastly the words “left behind” are not found in any of the alleged “rapture verses” in scripture. The author Hal Lindsey added the word “behind” in his book.

    Hope all is well

    “did he do things wrong? Sure he did….”

    Interesting. So how do you determine what Luther got wrong and what he got right? Let me guess, everything that you agree with, he got right and everything you disagree with, he got wrong.

    Luther believed in the real (not symbolic) body of Christ in the Eucharist and that Jesus mother Mary remained a virgin and never had any other children.

    “….the only way to get to heaven is through Jesus”

    Easier said than done. There are between 25,000 to 40,000 different Christian churches/denominations who do not agree about what “through Jesus” means or what it requires.

    So it’s very easy to say salvation is “through Jesus” but defining what exactly “through Jesus” means and HOW one goes “through Jesus” is what divides Christians.

    For me, this is where Protestantism could not (and cannot) stand up to biblical or historical scrutiny.

    Protestants violated the core principle of protestantism (scripture alone) when they removed 7 books from the original (1611) KJV Bible and when they accepted the New Testament canon because the Bible does not testify to either removing books from the Bible and NO WHERE in the Bible does it say that any of the books that make up the New Testament should be added to the Bible.

    Protestantism is a (self-defeating) faith framework that can’t even bear the weight of it’s own first principle.

    Billy Graham is correct.

    Allowing the worship of anyone other than Jesus in a CHRIST-ian church is sacrelidge. The emergent church teaches that nothing a “saved” person does or says has any effect on their salvation which effectually renders any form of sin (fornication, adultery, abortion, sacrelidge etc) acceptable to God because the sins of the “saved” are hidden from God by Jesus blood and once a person is “saved” God cannot deny them salvation and MUST admit them into heaven.

    Luthers false doctrines of salvation by “faith alone” (remaining obedient/faithful to God is encouraged but not necessary) and “eternal security” (once a person believes in Jesus even if they are unfaithful/disobedient God MUST admit them into heaven) have rendered sin utterly irrelavent and made it virtually impossible for many Christians to even know what “sin” is.

    Many Christians believe that “repentance” is nothing more than a mental state that occurs ONCE at the exact moment a person is “saved” and need not result in actually turning from sin or being faithful to Jesus Christ.

    Many Christians today define being “faithful” as simply acknowledging that Jesus exists. In other words Its not about JESUS accepting them it’s about THEM accepting Jesus.

    Just curious, have you ever heard of St Jerome or the Latin Vulgate or the Septuagint or the Codex?

    “Teaching purgatory may lead more people to believe that it’s okay to have “pet sins” in this life in intentional defiance of Christ, yet claim faith in Christ anyways.”

    Interesing.

    Teaching salvation by faith alone and once saved always saved (obedience to God is not required) may lead more people to believe that it’s okay to disobey Gods commands in this life in intentional defiance of Christ, yet claim faith in Christ anyways.

    So one teaching (the catholic teaching) is that nothing unclean can enter into Gods presence and the other (the Protestant teaching) is that anything unclean can (and will) enter into Gods presence.

    Doesn’t take a theologian or a scholar to see which teaching is/is not Biblical.

    “Get away from doctrine/dogma and get into GOD’s word”

    The Bible says that those who PERSEVERE IN DOCTRINE will save themselves and those who hear them. It does not say to “get away from doctrine”

    1 Tim 4:16
    Watch your life and DOCTRINE closely. PERSEVERE in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and those who hear you

    In (Heb 6:1-6) Paul warns that we must become mature in our doctrines regarding Christ not repeating the former sins that lead us to death. Paul goes on to say,

    “It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace

    The word doctrine appears 52 times in the Bible and not once does it say that we are to get away from doctrine or that doctrine is stupid or that doctrine is bad.

    Proverbs 4:2
    For I give you good doctrine, do not forsake my law

    Which Bible verse says to “get away from doctrine”?

    @bonesiii

    “accepting Jesus is synonymous with becoming loyal to him”

    You’ve actually just agreed with my position. Your definition of “loyal” and “faithful” however is not the biblical definition”. We are the bride of Christ which means we cannot cheat on our Groom Jesus Christ (God) and say we are “faithful” anymore than a bride can cheat on her groom and still say that she is “faithful” Try telling your spouse or your fiance that even though you fornicated with someone else you still remained “loyal” in your relationship.

    The Bible says that being faithful (or as you put it “loyal”) is giving Jesus our whole mind, our whole BODY and our whole STRENGTH……not just thoughts and words but deeds/actions. Again we are the Bride of Christ, anyone who thinks they can be unfaithful to their Bride in body but remain faithful in mind is deceiving themselves.

    The Protestant definition of being “faithful” in thoughts and words only while being unfaithful in action/deeds is EXACTLY what Jesus rebuked the scribes and pharisees for.

    Some men who cheat on their wives will say “yes I cheated with HER but YOU are the one I REALLY love honey” and the wife will say “away from me you cheater, I never knew you”

    The Protestant definition of “loyal” is not Jesus definition of loyal.

    God Bless

    Faith in the Bible is loyalty. Faith/loyalty alone saves, and is not classified as a work. It is a state of mind (soul/spirit), not an action, etc

    This scientist is correct to the extent that the difference between “Christians” and “non-Christians” is gradually becoming indistinguishable to the point that “Christians” now accept many things such as divorce and remarriage, gay marriage, gay clergy, abortion, adultery, euthanasia, sterilization, gender reassignment, artificial contrception (having sex while intentionally preventing the creation of life, using profanity to claim Jesus as Lord (and not in a b-u-l-l-s-h-i-t f-u-c-k-i-n-g way),worship rock music, worship rap music, worship dance, barking in the spirit etc etc.

    With a significant number of Christians today believing and preaching that once a person is “saved” no matter how much they sin God cannot deny them eternal life and MUST grant them entrance into heaven the difference between the sheep and the goats is slowly fading into the shadows so that the only real difference is some “claim” to be “born again in Christ”.

    How ironic that all those who claim that the church is “invisible” are actually making it so.

    Many Christian faiths teach that sin has no effect on salvation and no matter what Christians do God cannot deny them salvation because Jesus died to cover up (hide) their sins from God.

    So even though God actually can see everything He pretends that He cant.

    As a result many Christians today sin-cerely believe that what they do and what they believe doesn’t really matter because its covered by Jesus blood and does not affect salvation

  • [1] November 5, 2014 at 4:09pm

    –Luther’s Collected Works, Wittenburg Edition, no. 7 p, 391

    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.”

    John Calvin –
    “Therefore, if the Lord truly represents the participation in his body throught the breaking of bread, there ought not to be doubt that he truly presents and shows his body. And the godly ought by all means to keep this rule: whenever they see symbols appointed by the Lord, to think and be persuaded that the truth of the thing signified is surely present there. For why should the Lord put in your hand the symbol of his body, except to assure you of a true participation in it? But if it is true that a visible sign is given us to seal the gift of a thing invisible, when we have received the symbol of the body, let us now surely trust that the body itself is also given to us” (Institutes, 4.17.10; p.1371, McNeill/Battles trans.).
