The Noah Movie Deception

March 30, 2014

Genesis 6:1-9 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

THE BIBLE IS DIFFICULT TO BELIEVE FOR MINISTERS AND SCHOLARS LIKE JAMES B. TABOR

March 28, 2014

The following quote is by false teacher James B. Tabor in his book “The Jesus Dynasty: The Hidden History of Jesus, His Royal Family, and the Birth of Christianity”:

“But history, by its very nature, is an open process of inquiry that cannot be bound by dogmas of faith. Historians are obliged to examine whatever evidence we have, even if such discoveries might be considered shocking or sacrilegious to some. The assumption of the historian is that all human beings have both a biological mother and father, and that Jesus is no exception. That leaves two possibilities–either Joseph or some other unnamed man was the father of Jesus.” (Emphasis his).

False teacher Harry Emerson Fosdick also denied the virgin in a letter written in 1945 saying “Of course I do not believe in the virgin birth or in that old-fashioned substitutionary doctrine of the atonement” (The Christian Beacon, Jan. 3, 1957).

A poll done in 1998 of 7,441 “Protestant clergy” in the U.S. showed one denomination having the lowest of 19% of it’s “ministers” not believing in the virgin birth to the highest being the Methodists in the 60% range of not believing in the virgin birth. (Jeffrey Hadden). We wonder what the % is today in 2014.

To deny the virgin is contrary to sound doctrine and is without a doubt heresy! James B. Tabor and others like him who teach such heresy should be marked and avoided for such contrary doctrine!

Romans 16:17-18 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

The virgin birth is very clearly stated in the Bible:

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Matthew 1:18-25 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.

Luke 1:26-38 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

 

 

HOW FALSE DOCTRINE COMES UPON MAN:

February 17, 2014

“False doctrine does not meet men face to face, and proclaim that it is false. It does not blow a trumpet before it, and endeavor openly to turn us away from the truth… It approaches us secretly, quietly, insidiously, plausibly, and in such a way as to disarm man’s suspicion and throw him off guard. It is the wolf in sheep’s clothing, and Satan in the garb of an angel of light.”

– J.C. Ryle

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

2 Thessalonians 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

Luke 21:8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

2 Corinthians 2:17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

Mark 8:15 And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.

2 Timothy 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Galatians 2:4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:

2 Peter 2:1-3 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Luke 20:46-47 Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts; Which devour widows’ houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.

2 Peter 1:16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

1 Timothy 4:7 But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.

1 Timothy 1:4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.

2 Timothy 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Titus 1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Philippians 3:2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.

Ephesians 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

Frightful and Shocking Changes in Large Numbers of Churches

February 14, 2014

“I have been preaching for nearly 40 years and the negative changes that have occurred among Independent Baptists is frightful and shocking. In this day and time when dozens of heresies have found a happy home among Independent Baptists and when large numbers of IFB churches, such as Trinity Baptist Church, Jacksonville, Florida, are well down the emerging path, it is open and gross disobedience to Almighty God to say that we should not separate from a bunch of IFBs.”

– David Cloud

Do you hear it like this anymore?

February 14, 2014

I reckon many a men have become weak in their calling out of false teachers and their heresy:

Paul called false teachers: “dogs” and “evil workers”. He used the “Beware” word like we use it for “BEWARE OF DOG”.

Philippians 3:2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.

Those who pervert or preach another gospel of Christ Paul said “Let them be accursed”:

Galatians 1:7-9 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

Paul called them “evil men and seducers” and “deceiving” and did not say they would get better but worse and worse:

2 Timothy 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

He called false teachers “men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith”:

2 Timothy 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

He called them “false apostles, deceitful workers”:

2 Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

Here Paul holds nothing back:

Acts 13:10 And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?

He warned of “grievous wolves”

Acts 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

He labeled false teachings as “doctrines of devils”

1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

PSYCHOHERESY: The Psychological Seduction of Christianity

PSYCHOHERESY: The Psychological Seduction of Christianity
Revised & Expanded
by Martin and Deidre Bobgan

PsychoHeresy: The Psychological Seduction of Christianity (Revised & Expanded) exposes the fallacies and failures of psychological counseling theories and therapies; calls Christians back to God’s Word and the Holy Spirit’s work; reveals the anti-Christian biases, internal contradictions, and documented failures of secular psychotherapy; and examines the various mixes with Christianity. Current research more strongly supports our original conclusions and concerns. Yet psychoheresy is more deeply and broadly imbedded throughout the church.

James Dobson’s Gospel of Self-Esteem & Psychology

February 13, 2014

James Dobson’s Gospel of Self-Esteem & Psychology
By Martin and Deidre Bobgan

Because of his tremendous influence in bringing psychology and self-esteem teachings into the church, Dr. James Dobson’s work is an appropriate subject for examination. What he has written and said is examined from both a biblical and scientific point of view.

There are pluses to Dobson’s ministry. However, after all the pluses and minuses are added together, it is concluded that Focus on the Family is an organization that too often honors man and his opinions over God and His Word.

Contrary to what he claims, this book demonstrates that some of Dobson’s basic assumptions and many of his specific teachings actually originated from secular psychological theorists whose opinions are based on godless foundations. Thus, Dobson uses the Bible as a sanction for dispensing unbiblical ideas to unsuspecting readers and listeners. The use of psychology to help people eclipses the Scriptures at Focus on the Family. Self-esteem and psychology are the two major thrusts that too often supersede sin, salvation, and sanctification. They are another gospel.

Frank Viola’s “reconciled universe” heresy

February 13, 2014

“[Frank] Viola teaches the heresy that the universe has already been reconciled to God through Christ’s cross.

‘And by that horrible death, He reconciled a fallen cosmos to God’ (Viola and Sweet, Jesus Manifesto, p. 28).

‘I [Jesus] made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of My blood on the cross’ (Jesus Manifesto, location 2804).

In fact, though God’s goal is to reconcile all things, reconciliation will occur in stages, with the New Testament believer as the first fruits (Colossians 1:20-21).

At this time, the creation is most definitely not reconciled to God. Paul tells us that the whole creation still groans together under God’s curse (Romans 8:22). The cosmos will not be reconciled unto God until the current heaven and earth are replaced with a new heaven and a new earth (2 Peter 3:10-13).

Unbelievers are not presently reconciled to God. They are invited to be reconciled through faith in Christ (2 Cor. 5:18-20). But those who die in unbelief will never be reconciled to God but will endure eternal punishment in the lake of fire (Revelation 20:15).”
