Hell Is A Place Of Punishment In Everlasting Fire

Revelation 20:11-15, “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

The Holy Bibles teaches irrefutably that there is a literal place called “Hell,“” which burns with fire and brimstone (Revelation 21:8), where all Christ-rejecters will spend eternity suffering in torment. Our text passage of Scripture makes this horrifying truth very clear. 

One of the biggest false prophets on YouTube is a loudmouth boisterous unlearned woman named Renee Roland. She is woefully ignorant of the Word of God, denying the existence of everlasting punishment in the Lake of Fire. The Seventh-Day Adventist religious cult similarly denies the reality and existence of eternal punishment in fire and brimstone. Renee says in her video that she is not an Adventist, because she believes the wicked will suffer for a while, and then be annihilated. There is absolutely nothing in the Word of God about anyone being annihilated. You either go to Heaven or Hell. That is true of the angels as well.

So also do the Jehovah's Witness cult deny a literal burning Hell. Kindly said, Renee wrestles (twists) the Holy Scriptures to her own destruction. 2nd Peter 3:16-17, “As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.” Renee requests for people not to call her a heretic and false prophet, but she is a HERETIC and a FALSE PROPHET! In her video she claims that her denial of everlasting punishment in hellfire is based upon 50 BIBLE VERSES! She is deceived!

The Story Of The Rich Man And Lazarus Is a Factual Account

In the video link I just provided to Renee butchering the Bible, she errantly claims that the story Jesus' told in Luke 16:19-31 of the rich man, Abraham and Lazarus is a mere parable. She is wrong! This story is a literal account of something that happened. We know it is NOT a parable for the following reasons:
  1. Jesus did not say that is was a parable. The Lord ALWAYS announced when He was telling a parable.
  2. Jesus didn't explain afterwards what it meant, which He always did when telling a parable.
  3. Jesus uses proper names (Abraham and Lazarus) which He never did when telling parables. In parables the Lord uses vague terms; such as, a certain man took a journey into a far country, giving no specifics.
  4. Jesus said in John 14:2, “In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.” The Lord said what He meant, and meant what He said. If Hell is not a literal place where Christ-rejecters go to suffer in everlasting torment and fire, then He is a dirty deceiver!
The story of the rich man and Lazarus is a factual account. 

Sodom And Gomorrah Destroyed As Example Of Everlasting Punishment

Jude 1:7, “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.“”

Renee butchers this passage in her horrible video, claiming that this verse does not refer to everlasting punishment. Dear reader, look for yourself at the word “EXAMPLE.” God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah and three other cities in the plains of Sodom, as an EXAMPLE of the eternal fire in Hell for the wicked. The “wicked” are all those of humanity who knowingly reject Jesus Christ as their Savior (John 8:24). No one ever went to Hell who didn't choose to go there by willfully rejecting God's free gift of eternal life through faith alone in His only begotten Son (John 3:16). All small children go to Heaven. All mentally disabled people who cannot comprehend sin and the Gospel go to Heaven. The choice is yours!

Renee foolishly rationalizes that since Sodom and Gomorrha are no longer still burning today, she says Hell is not forever. That is foolish conjecture. Revelation 14:11, “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” The Bible is abundantly clear here that Hell is FOR EVER AND EVER! In Hell there is NO REST DAY NOR NIGHT. There is TORMENT. You cannot be tormented if you cease to exist by being annihilated (destroyed). The Scriptures plainly teach that Hell is FOR EVER AND EVER!!! How can anyone debate those direct statements? 

The following Scripture passage would make no sense if death means ceasing to exist. Matthew 10:28, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Psalms 9:17, The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” Again, this Bible passage makes no sense if Hell is merely the grave. Clearly the wicked go to a DIFFERENT place than the righteous. 

Renee Roland Is Judging God Based On Her Level Of Holiness

In the video Renee (at about 22:45 minutes) claims that teaching everlasting punishment “hurts God's character.” No, Renee is corrupting the truth, perverting the Scriptures. She says that it hurts God's character to say that He would burn someone in Hell for all eternity. No it hurts her character! Renee is foolishly judging God based upon her own finite human understanding. In Renee's eyes she cannot comprehend a God who would take a blow-torch to someone (that's the term she uses). Dear reader, God is more holy than either you or I could ever understand. If we judge God by our own sinful human nature, then we start saying ungodly things as Gene Roddenberry (the creator of the Star Trek television series):
“We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes.” —Gene Roddenberry
Woe unto Gene Roddenberry (1921-1991), who died and no doubt went to Hell in his unbelief. Romans 9:20, “Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?” Renee is a false prophet! What concerns me most is that she has a lot of supporters on the internet who gives her thumbs up on her videos, and tell her how great a job she is doing. No, she is hurting people with her lies, perverting the Scriptures. Hell is a literal place that burns with fire and brimstone forever and ever and ever and ever and ever!

The Righteous And Wicked Go To Different Places

I had an unsaved Mormon boss many years ago, when I worked as a truck mechanic, hand me a piece of paper with some Old Testament passages on it. We hadn't been talking about religion, so I am not sure why he handed me the verses. On the paper he also wrote the word “Sheol, which is the Hebrew word for hell throughout the Old Testament. He said, “I think of you'll look up these Scriptures, you'll see that Hell is just the grave.” Well, that is what the word Sheol means, but it doesn't limit the afterlife to just the grave. This is made abundantly clear by Psalms 9:17, which tells us that the wicked go to Hell, but the righteous unto life eternal. If the righteous and the wicked both go to the SAME place, then this Bible verse is meaningless. Obviously the wicked go to a very different place of suffering, and the righteous to a place of blessing. 

Beware Of False Prophets In Sheep's Clothing

A lot of Christians are giving Renee a free pass on her heresy that everlasting punishment doesn't exist, because she has done a good job preaching the Gospel. Something is VERY WRONG with that picture! Satan knows that the most effective deception is the HALF-TRUTH. The Gospel is the remedy for the curse of the law, but if there is not everlasting punishment, then what is the curse? I implore you not to listen to Renee, at all! She errantly claims that the phrase twice dead in Jude 1:12b refers to annihilationWhat saith the Scripture? Revelation 21:8, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Could the Bible be any plainer? I think not. 

Interestingly, Renee left Revelation 21:8 out of her 29 minute video presentation. She claims to have spent “a long time studying the subject of Hell in the Bible. If that be true she is not a very good student. 2nd Timothy 2:15, Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.Kindly said, Renee lacks spiritual discernment and wrongly divides the Word of God! She says her study of people being consumed in the Old Testament led her to conclude that annihilation is Biblical. She cites this passage from Psalms 37:20, “But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.” Renee makes the error of taking passages out of context, failing to take into consideration the whole counsel of God.

Renee keeps apologizing throughout her video if people disagree with her, but she disagrees with God's Word! There is no controversy if you believe the Bible! She disregards Revelation 14:11, which teaches Hell is a place of smoke and torment, as merely being metaphoric (that's the word she uses). Who is Renee to decide what parts of the Bible are metaphoric or not? Metaphoric means to “express one thing in terms normally denoting another.” So according to Renee Roland “fire doesn't mean literal fire. Smoke doesn't mean literal smoke. Torment doesn't literally mean torment. That is some dangerous speculation Renee! I am only refuting her theological heresy, not her personally. Renee is very loud and bold to express her heretical views, which is why I felt compelled to write this article to counter her boldness to preach a bunch of lies!!! 

Kindly, Renee is arrogant to say that it hurts God's character to believe in everlasting punishment. She claims to believe in different degrees of punishment for mankind, but absolutely not everlasting punishment. The Bible 100% calls Renee a heretic and liar, theologically. At the end of her video she makes an appeal for people not to call her names like heretic, but that is exactly what she is. She asks people to agree to disagree. That is fine as far as loving and being “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 1:3). Since Renee is publishing YouTube videos with the intent to teach people her views, she is open game for criticism from others. It is fine to agree to disagree, but learned believers must still expose her falsehoods. Nobody gets a free pass. If I teach heresy, people come after me with the Bible, and they should! Proverbs 9:8, Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.” 

I Am Writing In A Spirit of Christian Love

I did NOT write this article to rebuke Renee; but rather, to help everyone else not to be deceived or confused by her false teachings. The Bible teaches Hell is forever! We must never interpret the Holy Bible by our own human understanding and standards. Renee rationalizes that since the worst sentence a human court could give a criminal is the death penalty, why would God burn someone in Hell forever and ever? You see, she is judging God by humans standards, which is very wrong to do. Dear reader, we must let the Bible correct us, and not us the Bible. 

I admit that I don't think God is fair to burn someone in Hell forever. You'd think after a trillion years that someone would have served their time in Hell. But it doesn't matter how I feel or think, because the Bible is God's Word, and I am commanded to lean not unto my own understanding, but to trust the Lord (Proverbs 3:5-7). Did you ever stop to wonder why God releases the Devil after 1,000 years from his chains (Revelation 20:7), to go out and deceive the world once more? Could it be that God wants to prove to humanity that giving someone a second chance doesn't make a difference? I mean, you'd think after 1,000 years of being bound in chains in the Bottomless Pit, that the Devil would be reformed. Yet, we see in the Scriptures that Satan's vile nature is still the same. Likewise, if God were to release a lost sinner from Hell after 1,000 years, would they be any different? I don't have an answer to that question, but it may explain why Hell is forever.

Regardless, we DO KNOW that the Bible teaches everlasting fire. There are many Scriptures that teach everlasting punishment in Hell fire for the wicked. Matthew 25:41, “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:” It is difficult for me to understand how Renee could dismiss all this solid Scriptural evidence as merely being “metaphoric.” That is exactly the error of Pastor John MacArthur, who in his 'The MacArthur Study Bible' says that, “BY HIS OWN BLOOD” in Hebrews 9:12 is metaphoric and actually refers to Jesus' “DEATH” on the cross instead. If you believe Mr. MacArthur you've got a hole in your head big enough to drive a semi-truck through! Likewise, Renee is very wrong. Fire means fire. Torment means torment. Smoke means smoke. Worms means worms. Unless the Bible says otherwise, we should ALWAYS interpret the Scripture at face value.

Is Renee saved? John 20:31 says that the Gospel of John is God's Gospel tract. John 20: 31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.The word Hell does not appear once in John. I could be wrong, but I do not find any requirement in the Bible to believe in everlasting punishment to be saved. You must know that you are a needy sinner (1st John 1:8-10). Why would you want to be saved if there is no penalty for sin? Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Renee said she believes in varying degrees of punishment in the afterlife, but not everlasting punishment. In my humble opinion she is saved, but confused on Hell. That doesn't make her unsaved, it just makes her a poor student of the Holy Bible.

Hell Is Real (Pastor Danny Castle)

Time Is Running Out Quick, Serve God While You Can

John 9:4, I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

Even the Lord knew that He was living on borrowed time from God the Father. We are all living on borrowed time. You may think if you are younger that you still have your whole life ahead of you, but I plead with you not to think that way, because today literally could be the LAST DAY of your life. I recently read that magician Criss Angel's 5 year old son has cancer. That is very sad. Also, singer Michael Buble's 5 year old son has cancer. Life is what happens to us while we're making big plans! Dear friend, you don't know what tomorrow holds, and neither do I; but we can study the Scriptures to find out what God has revealed in prophecy about the future

I am now 53 years old. I admit that I am amazed how fast my life has gone. I have lived a bitter-sweet life. I have suffered more than my share of sorrow, pain and heartache. My wife divorced me in 2006, against my will. I have not been able to find a wife since, and still live alone in 2020. I sometimes want to die because I cannot find a wife, and am so lonely. No one cares! We are living in a very selfish generation, and sadly the most selfish people I know are at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, who have rejected my humble request to return to their church since 2017. God will deal with them on Judgment Day, refusing to give them a second chance, just as they have refused to love, forgive and give me a second chance (Matthew 7:1-2). These are “perilous times,” foretold in 2nd Timothy 3:1-7. Professed Christians today are cold, indifferent, phony and only care about their paychecks. 

This life will be over before we know it! I still feel like I am 18 years old, and it seems like just yesterday, but I am 53. If I live a normal lifespan, I only have 17 years left! I promise you young person, that you will be 50 years old before you know what happened. Many people today are in their 40's and still single, having missed out on marriage and parenting because of a career, living in a small town where they couldn't find anyone (which is my situation now), or alone because of their reclusive personality, living a secluded life (which is becoming the norm because of technology). Also, women aren't very approachable in this wicked generation because of the destructive influence of feminism (making women independent of men), and the media's sensationalism of domestic abuse (which has made many women paranoid of being abused in a bad relationship). This is not God's way.

I implore you friend to serve God while you still can. 1st Corinthians 15:34, “Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.” Every Christian believer has a duty to share the truth of the Gospel with those around us. We cannot witness to every person, and we ought to be respectful and ethical in our approach, but we have a responsibility to PREACH THE GOSPEL. In the parable of the 'Sower And The Seeds' in Luke 8:11-15 we are taught this truth. Verse 15 says, “But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.Clearly, God expects for every believer to mature to become a soulwinner. Those who don't have either backslid on God because of persecution (Luke 8:13); or have been choked by the cares, riches and pleasures of this temporary earthly life (Luke 8:14). Many preachers misinterpret Luke 8:11-15 to apply to salvation, but that is wrong. This parable is about maturing to become a soulwinner, evidenced by verse 15. 

Life is short, Hell is hot, and eternity is a long time. Whose blood will you have on your hands in eternity? Have you witnessed to your loved ones? When Lot spoke of spiritual things to his son-in-laws, they laughed at him as one who mocketh the Bible says, because Lot's personal testimony was so poor as a Christian. You are the only Jesus that somebody knows! This is exactly what the Holy Bible means in Hebrews 12:14, “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:” If we don't live godly in Christ Jesus, other people may go to Hell because of our poor testimony, not wanting anything to do with such type of phony Christianity. Someone is always watching!!!

Ephesians 5:16, “Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” Colossians 4:5, “Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.” Time is the most precious asset that we have. What are we doing with our time? Actually it is God's time, because the moment we accepted Christ as our Savior, we became God's property. We are bought with a price the Bible says (1st Corinthians 6:20), and that price in Jesus' precious blood (1st Peter 1:18-19). Most Christians watch far too much TV and don't spend enough time abiding in the Scriptures (John 5:39; Psalms 1:1-3). We are what we see, hear and think (Acts 4:20). That is why my favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 4:23, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”
“Church is a place where people should be able to hurt out loud. And I should be there to put my arms around those who are willing to hurt out loud.” —Evangelist Les Ollila, from the MP3 sermon, “The Judgment Seat Of Christ.”

I Never Knew You

Matthew 7:21-23, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

There's your Lordship Salvation crowd in our text passage. They cried out “Lord, Lord,” but He did not know who they are. Lordship Salvation is a damnable false doctrine, a counterfeit gospel, which cannot produce the new birth in Christ Jesus. I find it highly ironic that the Bible would contain such a Scripture passage, when we've got a bunch of false teachers in church circles today, requiring people to make Jesus the absolute “Lord of their life to be saved. They say the proof you are saved is that you have turned away from your sins. Folks, that is Calvinism! That is works salvation! That is not the Gospel of free grace. The Bible plainly teaches in 1st John 3:24 that the evidence of one's salvation is the presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit, which only you and God can see. 1st John 3:24, “And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.” 

Jesus warned everyone in Matthew 7:21-23 that no matter how dedicated you may be to serving Him, that won't get you to Heaven. Please listen friend, because this is a matter of life and death. The Lord did not know this group of religious people! They cried out in their self-defense saying, “We prophesied IN THY NAME, we did many wonderful works IN THY NAME, we cast of devils IN THY NAME,” but Jesus said the horrifying words: “I NEVER KNEW YOU! They spent their lives LIVING FOR JESUS. They lived lifestyles of repentance to prove the reality of their repentance (as Ray Comfort foolishly teaches). 

Dear reader, will you also hear those horrifying words one day in eternity—I NEVER KNEW YOU: DEPART FROM ME YE WORKERS OF INIQUITY!!! They said they had done “MANY WONDERFUL WORKS,” but what they called wonderful Jesus called iniquity!!! Why did Jesus say that? Why were their good works iniquity? What saith the Scriptures. Isaiah 64:6, “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.What an astounding truth—all of our righteousnesses are as FILTHY RAGS in the sight of God almighty! Let me ask you a question—If we cannot be saved by filthy rags, then why would you use those filthy rags to prove that you're saved? 

That is why Jesus said He did not know these religious people—because they went about to establish their OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, instead of trusting in GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS through faith alone in Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:9; Romans 10:3-4). You need “HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS” (John 6:33b). Will Christ one day deny knowing you friend? He will if you follow the junk theology of John MacArthur, Moody Bible Institute, John Piper, Ray Comfort, R.C. Sproul, Paul Washer, Chip Ingram, William Lane Craig, Charles Lawson and other reprobate Calvinists!!! Romans 10:3-4, “For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” That is why the folks didn't make it to Heaven in Matthew 7:21-23, they were self-righteous.
The dope crowd will not destroy America. The homosexual crowd will not destroy America. The baby killers will not destroy America. The communists will not destroy America. The Hollywood crowd will not destroy America. If America is destroyed, it will be destroyed because of the pastors who substituted visions, prophecies, dreams, man’s words, and tongues for the very words of God. Our God is not a God of "confusion." Yet, Satan is accomplishing "confusion" through 1,000 perversions of the Scriptures on the market. —Pastor Bob Gray Sr., “Do We have An Every Word Bible In 2017?

Abortion Is First Degree Murder!

Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”

What a beautiful passage of Scripture. before Jeremiah was even conceived in his mother's womb, God knew him! Think about the astounding implications of what that truth means! God lives in eternity. Before you or I were ever conceived, in God's mind He already knew all about us. God knew the sins that we would commit. God knew the loss, pain and suffering that would afflict us. God already knows the time we will die, and how, and why. Think how it would change your life, if you knew the exact day you would die! Yet, Hebrews 9:27 says we all have an appointment with death, and then the judgment! Are you ready?

There is not a more wicked evil in this universe than to take the life of a child in the womb. Abortion is nothing less than first-degree murder. The U.S. Supreme Court are devils! Who are those arrogant judges to flaunt their authority over God almighty? Hell will be filled with ungodly legislatures, lawyers and judges! The Holy Bible is adamantly clear in Exodus 20:13, “THOU SHALT NOT KILL.Abortion stops a beating heart. Only an insane person would dare to claim that a baby in the protection of its mother's womb is not a human being. That is what the ungodly U.S. government did to black people in the 19th century, ruling that a black person was only 4/5th of a man. By depriving a living child of life, men and women are playing God with the lives of others. 

American's character has been shaped by our culture of death! Nothing is sacred to this generation. The bed and marriage act are not held sacred anymore. Life is no longer held sacred. The inspired Word of God is no longer held sacred, being tampered with and changed at every impulse and whim. What is so shocking is that the majority of our sick society, including religious leaders, have accepted abortion as a normal part of American life. It is wickedness!!! Just as Abel's blood cried out to God from the ground in Genesis 4:10, so does the blood of nearly 60,000,000 murdered (aborted) human beings cry out to God from the ground for revenge. Genesis 4:10, “And he said, What hast thou done?  the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.”
Abortion doesn't make a woman unpregnant, it just makes her the mother of a dead baby!

Salvation And The Public Invitation

John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

All across the world, misguided preachers have been taught by peers to require people to walk down a church isle at invitation time to be saved. They have sinfully ADDED an additional step to God's plan of salvation. No where in the Holy Scriptures are we taught to walk down a church isle to be saved. What if a person is too scared to walk a church isle, or physically doesn't feel too well, or perhaps simply doesn't want to be made a spectacle of in front of the whole church? Why cannot they be saved right there in the pew? They certainly CAN, which is why every pastor and evangelist should tell lost sinners how to be saved in their pew. If they desire to walk an isle afterwards to stand in front of the church, then that opportunity can be given; but for some who don't want to go forward, at least they will be on their way to Heaven.

I was gloriously saved at age 13. Unfortunately, the pastor required everyone to come forward at invitation time, but I was too timid to go forward. I had been in Sunday School my whole life, but had never been saved. So I had enough knowledge from what I had learned, and from some of the things the pastor said that Sunday morning, to be saved from my pew. However, I had very limited knowledge. I cried out to Jesus as a needy sinner in my soul, and begged Jesus to save me. I believed that He had died for my sins on the cross, and that He was buried, and that He raised up. I called out to the risen Savior and He saved me!!! But because I had limited knowledge, I had many doubts, fears and questions in my mind, which would haunt me day and night for the next seven miserable years of my life. All of that could have been avoided, if the pastor that day had simply explained in detail how to be saved in my pew. The Gospel if presented correctly doesn't take more than one minute. 

God intentionally made His plan of salvation for mankind very simple. In 2nd Corinthians 11:3-4 we read about THE SIMPLICITY THAT IS IN CHRIST, which is 'The Gospel,' defined for us in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 as Christ's death on the cross, burial and physical resurrection after three days. Repeatedly throughout the inspired King James Bible, we are simply taught to BELIEVE on the name of Jesus Christ to be saved. Acts 10:43, “To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.Even a small child can understand they are a needy sinner and trust in the name of Jesus to be saved. You must know are a needy sinner (Romans 3:19-20). What do you need? Why, you need a Savior (Acts 4:10-12; Galatians 3:24-26). Since you are a sinner, you cannot save yourself. 

No preacher should ever require someone to walk a church isle to learn how to receive the free gift of eternal life! God will hold such irresponsible pastors responsible on judgment day, who will have the blood of hundreds (if not thousands) of people on their hands, who didn't get saved because they ADDED to the Gospel. I am all for giving an invitation, but make sure to preach the Gospel to the man in the pew as well. You may never know who accepted Christ in the pew here on earth, but you';; find out in Heaven. I know that for every person who lets me know my website ministry led them to Jesus Christ, there are at least TEN MORE who didn't let me know. I praise God for them all, and someday in Heaven I'll find out and get to meet them for the first time. The true measurement of my earthly success won't be how many people show up at my funeral, but how many people are waiting to greet me when I get to Heaven. Amen!
“'You can't tell me you can trust Christ as Savior, and then go out here and live like the Devil, and still go to Heaven!' Yes, I can tell you that! That's what the Bible says. If you don't come to the conclusion, that—Yes, you can trust Christ as your Savior and live like the Devil, and still go to Heaven when you die—you don't get grace, because that is the exact truth! That is the truth! I do not have to change my life! I don't have to stop one sin! You say, 'I've never heard a preacher say that.' You just heard one! And you listen to me—I want to live as holy and as godly as I possibly can. I am now 70 years old. I've been saved for 52 years. ... the only reason I'm going to Heaven is because, 52 years ago in a little living room, I accepted Christ as my Savior.” —Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold, a great quote from the awesome sermon, “Calvinism And Grace Are NOT Compatible | MP3

John Calvin And Martin Luther Are Burning In Hell

Galatians 1:9, “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.”

John Calvin (1509-1564) was a religious heretic who lived 500 years ago. Calvin taught the heresy of infant baptism. He also taught the deception that religious sacraments are equal with the Word of God. Martin Luther (1483-1546) was another religious reprobate, who lived during the same time as John Calvin. Both of these reprobate men taught sacramental salvation, which includes both water baptism and communion. Of course, the word “sacrament” is not even found in the Holy Bible. Thus, Christians ought not observe sacraments at all. In fact, to observe sacraments is a sin and false religion.

In the New Testament Church, we only observe two ordinances: water baptism and the Lord's supper. These are not sacraments and do not bestow any special grace upon the participant. They are simply symbols. Water baptism symbolizes the Gospel, showing outwardly what has happened inwardly, that is, our faith in the death, burial and bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Likewise, the Lord's supper symbolizes Christ's broken body and shed blood for our sins on the cross. We do this in remembrance of the Lamb of God Who gave Himself for us.

John Calvin was a monster who murdered 58 people (including women and children) who disagreed with his infant baptism heresy. Calvin never changed himself, which proves Lordship Salvation a lie (which says a changed life is proof of salvation). We are saved by the simplicity that is in Christ, which is the Gospel (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4; Romans 1:16; 1st Corinthians 15:1-4). Getting saved is simple—you are a SINNER and Jesus is the SAVIOR! If you admit you are a needy SINNER, and you believe that the SAVIOR died on the cross to pay for your sins, was buried and raised up from the dead three days later, you are saved!

Martin Luther foolishly taught that water baptism and holy communion were MANDATORY for salvation, which makes him a devil preacher! I am so sick and tired of ungodly pastor today, who after being warned about Martin Luther, sinfully choose to continue promoting him. The Lutheran religion is of the Devil, who follow Martin Luther's heretical lies about salvation. Both Calvin and Luther taught sacramental salvation. I cannot warn you enough to stay away from the Lordship Salvation crowd today, who are Calvinists!!! Stay away from Moody Bible Institute, who are openly professed Calvinists. Avoid Dr. John MacArthur. Run away from Evangelist Ray Comfort! Stay away from Bob Jones University, where John MacArthur went to school!!! The Bob Jones crowd have become extremely ecumenical, hobnobbing with the ungodly religious world, embracing Satan's counterfeit Bible revisions by the dozens, and going along with a degree of worldliness and apostasy. 

One of the best books I've read, which you can freely read, which exposes Martin Luther is by Dr. Max D. Younce, called, 'Martin Luther: Master Of Deceit.' John Calvin was an unsaved reprobate who taught that a person cannot know they are saved without being water baptized. The reason I yoked these two apostates together in one blog article is because John Calvin was influenced by Martin Luther. Basically, Mr. Luther was Calvin's mentor. Both men were theologically corrupted. Luther came out of the Roman Catholic church, but the Roman catholic church never came out of him. Sacraments are rooted in devilish Catholicism!!! Whether seven sacraments or just two, they are unbiblical. 
The dope crowd will not destroy America. The homosexual crowd will not destroy America. The baby killers will not destroy America. The communists will not destroy America. The Hollywood crowd will not destroy America. If America is destroyed, it will be destroyed because of the pastors who substituted visions, prophecies, dreams, man’s words, and tongues for the very words of God. Our God is not a God of "confusion." Yet, Satan is accomplishing "confusion" through 1,000 perversions of the Scriptures on the market. —Pastor Bob Gray Sr., “Do We have An Every Word Bible In 2017?

Calvinism Is A Satanic Mindset

1st Corinthians 2:14, “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

Billions of unsaved people (including religious people) cannot discern truth. Even many believers are confused, having been misled by corrupt preachers. Calvinism says you absolutely must make Jesus the Savior and Lord“” of your life to be saved, and that the proof you are saved is that you have turned away from your sins. Such teachers are devil-preachers in the pulpit! I'm talking about John MacArthur, Phil Johnson, Paul Washer, John Piper, R.C. Sproul, Chip Ingram, Charles Lawson and Ray Comfort. I'm talking about Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, who openly admit to being Calvinist on their college website. I'm talking about 30% of all Southern Baptist churches! 

Why Lordship Salvation Is Wrong
(a beautiful MP3 sermon by Pastor Ralph 
Yankee Arnold)

John Calvin (1509-1564) was an unsaved heretic who is today and forever burning in the fires of Hell! That is the horrifying truth. Salvation is solely of the Lord, because of what HE DID FOR ME, and not because of WHAT I DO FOR HIM! As Christians we SHOULD live for Christ; not MUST (that is works), not WILL (that would be Calvinism). If you have children, do they HAVE to love you to be your children? No, of course not. Likewise, every child of God is 100% safe in Christ, unable to lose salvation no matter how horribly we choose to sin. Granted, that doesn't give a believer God's permission to live in willful sin (Romans 3:31; Hebrews 12:6-8). Many preachers fail to discern the difference between SALVATION versus DISCIPLESHIP. The truth is still the truth, even if no one believes it; a lie is still a lie, even if everyone believes it! 

John Calvin's heretical teachings on salvation are commonly expressed and simplified with the acronym, T-U-L-I-P:
  1. TOTAL DEPRAVITY (man is too wicked and has no freewill to come to God, he must be enabled)
  2. UNCONDITIONAL ELECTION (God chooses who will be saved)
  3. LIMITED ATONEMENT (Christ only died for those whom God chose to be saved)
  4. IRRESISTIBLE GRACE (God forces salvation upon those whom He has chosen)
  5. PERSEVERANCE OF THE SAINTS (those who are saved will persevere in holy living, otherwise they are not saved)
We did not believe because God chose us; but rather, we were chosen by God because we believe. God has chosen to save every person who will trust Him (John 3:16). There you have it, Calvinism in a nutshell. All five of these teachings are Satanic!!!
“Can a man who's predestined to salvation really be lost before he is saved? If a man is predestined to salvation, why does he need to hear the Gospel? What would be the point?” —Pastor Yankee Arnold, pastor of Calvary Community Church in Tampa, Florida; "Why Lordship Salvation Is Wrong?"

The Insane Dinosaur Theory Of Young Earthers

Psalms 102:25, “Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.”

Someone handed me a book recently, trying to convince me of a Young Earth theory. I explained to them my Old Earth position, but told them that I would read the book with an open mind and be honest. The book is titled, “THE CREATION ANSWERS BOOK,” co-authored by Don Batten, David Catchpoole, Jonathan Sarfati, Carl Wieland and various other contributing writers. I learned a long time ago that someone's most ridiculous argument is the most damning information against them, which can be used to discredit the rest of their work or beliefs:

For example: Jehovah's Witnesses successfully confuse many unsaved people on the matter of Jesus' deity, teaching people that Jesus is “a god” but not “THE GOD.” However, what Jehovah's Witnesses DON'T teach people upfront is that they believe Michael the archangel became Jesus. When you present this ridiculous information to an honest person, they can much more easily recognize the Jehovah's Witnesses as a satanic religious cult. Of course, the Word of God totally disagrees. The Bible teaches that the Godhead became incarnate (flesh) in the earthly person of Jesus Christ (John 1:1-3,14; Colossians 2:9 — King James Bible). The Bible teaches that Jesus is almighty God, the revelation of the unseen Father (1st Timothy 3:16; John 10:33; Revelation 1:8 — King James Bible).

Likewise, the most ridiculous information (argument) put forth in the book “THE CREATION ANSWERS BOOK” is concerning dinosaurs and man co-existing. The four authors teach that Noah took baby dinosaurs onto the ark, which is the same garbage that Ken Ham teaches. On pages 247-248 we read:
“Given the different dinosaur species that have been identified, and the huge size of some of them [e.g., Seismosaurus, on the basis of fossil reconstructions attained lengths of 45 metres (150 feet)], some people might wonder how Noah could have taken all the dinosaur kinds onto the Ark. However, when one considers the following, there is no problem.
1. Only around 55 dinosaur 'kinds'
In Chapter 13, we discussed how Noah did not need to take all species (a notoriously flexible concept) on board the Ark, but only pairs of each created kind. The same principle applies to dinosaurs. So Noah's Ark did not have to carry the 668 or so named species of dinosaurs, rather, just the representative 'kinds' (Genesis 6:20)—of which it has been estimated there were only 55.”
SOURCE: “THE CREATION ANSWERS BOOK,”  copyright 2006 by Creative Ministries International; pages 247-248.
At the bottom of page 248, the book has a footnote that claims there are many duplicate names for dinosaurs, and that the actual number of species is “greatly inflated.” This claim may actually have some merit, as National Geographic reports. However, as the National Geographic article says, there is not enough fossil evidence to prove the claim one way or the other. Wikipedia says there is a list of 1,466 dinosaur species, of which 1,080 are considered valid. This is certainly much higher than the alleged 55 species that “THE CREATION ANSWERS BOOK” claims. The question is, “Could all those dinosaurs fit on the Ark?” I think not! The very idea is absurd!

Check out this page from National Geographic's on Big Bad Bizarre Dinosaurs! (check out those TEETH). Did Noah bring these onto the Ark? I think not! ...
“After two centuries of paleontological harvest, the evidence seems stranger than any fable, and continues to get stranger. Dozens of new species emerge each year; China and Argentina are hot spots lately for startling new finds. Contemplating the bizarre specimens recently come to light, one cannot but wonder what on earth Nature was thinking of. What advantage was conferred, say, by the ungainly eight-foot-long (2.4 meters) arms and huge triple claws of Deinocheirus? Or, speaking of arms, by Mononykus's smug dependence on a single, stoutly clawed digit at the end of each minimal forearm? Guesses can be hazarded: The latter found a single stubby claw just the thing for probing after insects; the former stripped the leaves and bark from trees in awesome bulk. A carnivorous cousin, Deinonychus, about the size of a man, leaped on its prey, wrapped its long arms and three-fingered hands around it, and kicked it to the death with sickle-shaped toenails.”

Read here about new Horned Dinosaurs that have been found by archaeologists. Noah's Ark would have to keep increasing in size, because more and more species of dinosaurs are being discovered every year! The ark was big, but not THAT BIG! Look at some of these Prehistoric Creatures. They're called “prehistoric” for a good reason, that is, they existed before human history!!!

When I went to Los Angeles for neck surgery in 2009, I visited the famous LA BREA TAR PITS MUSEUM in downtown Los Angeles. They are literal tar pits, stinking with hot bubbling black tar. Some squirrels and birds get entrapped in the tar pits by accident and die unintentionally. I watched them doing some live excavations inside the Museum, still digging up fossils and meticulously sorting through them with special equipment and a magnifying glass to find fossils.

I sincerely, but ignorantly, went inside and asked where the dinosaurs were? The attendant laughed and said there were no dinosaurs there, only prehistoric Mammals. I was fascinated by that. It is a special museum just for prehistoric mammals, and not for dinosaurs like The Field Museum in Chicago. Inside the entrance was a giant Mammoth with giant tusks, and a Sabertooth tiger, and other hairy creatures as tall as the ceiling. How did Noah fit all the thousands of prehistoric mammals and creatures besides dinosaurs onto the ark? Clearly, Noah did not! Furthermore, even if dinosaurs did survive the flood, there is no record of them going extinct. Science shows that it was the Ice Age that wiped out the dinosaurs from the earth 65,000,000 years ago. Visit The “La Brea Tar Pits” Online

I love Dr. John R. Rice (1895-1980), but disagree with his Young Earth view. Dr. Rice believed that dinosaurs existed in Genesis, but that Noah left the dinosaurs behind. Brother Rice taught that dinosaurs lived in remote areas away from major living centers, just as wild animals like lions and hippopotamuses live today in remote areas and the jungles of Africa, India and South America. However, there is nothing in the Bible to indicate that Noah was told by God to leave certain animals behind. Even the birds couldn't have survived without being sheltered on-board the Ark. I think it is silly to think that ferocious dinosaurs of all types wouldn't have made their way to eat humans for dinner! There is no scientific evidence to evidence that mankind ever lived together with dinosaurs. Science evidences that dinosaurs lived 65,000,000 to 220,000,000 years ago, which is Biblically supported. 

I don't see Noah bringing prehistoric Pterodactyls on board (really big birds). If you consider all the thousands of species that exist in the world today, and all the thousands of extinct prehistoric creatures, there's no way possible that Noah could have brought them all on the ark for their shear size. Noah had plenty of room for all the animals, insects, reptiles, birds and living creatures which God led to the ark in pairs. The dinosaurs didn't have a ticket to ride.

Crucifixes Are Wrong To Use

Hebrews 9:23-28, It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Jesus only needed to offer Himself as a sacrifice once. This is what is wrong with the Catholic crucifix―they keep Jesus on the cross. In the Catholic mass, participants actually believe they are digesting the literal body and blood of Jesus Christ each time. This is why Mel Gibson's film, THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, portrays Jesus being brutally whipped, punched and beaten every step of the way (which no human being could survive). Gibson's movie caters to the Catholic mass, in which they believe Jesus is continually sacrificed again and again. Yet the Bible proclaims that Jesus died ONCE. They call this the doctrine of transubstantiation, which is unscriptural. Jesus is NO longer on the cross.

Also, every crucifix I've ever seen makes Jesus' look decrepit and sickly. Our Lord was a carpenter, and they didn't have power tools back then. Jesus was a strong man, healthy, and not some sissified looking wimp. Catholics have some strange ideas of Christ. Jesus died on the cross, was buried to confirm His death, and then rose miraculously three days later. Christ is alive! Thank the Lord for His mercy, for paying for our many sins with His precious blood. Colossians 1:14, “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” Jesus is not still on the cross. Catholics have some strange beliefs, one of which is their teaching of Transubstantiation” (the heresy that the wafer and juice in the Eucharist literally turns into Jesus' blood and body in one's stomach). Catholics believe that Jesus is crucified again every time they partake of this sacrament. The crucifix is tied in with this demonic teaching and religious ritual. No Christian should use crucifixes, which is a form of idolatry (Exodus 20:4-5). 

Exodus 20:4-5, Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Whose Vineyard Are You Keeping?

Titus 2:3-5, “The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.”

I heard a great sermon clip today from one of my favorite preachers, Pastor Steven L. Anderson. The clip is called, what else, 'Whose Vineyard Are You Keeping?' What a great truth! American society has been destroyed from deliberate social engineering since the 1960's by the Rockefellers. Feminism has ruined tens of millions of homes! From fornication to abortion, feminism is the rot of any culture, which is why many countries block out perverse western culture. Truly, the USA is 'The Great Satan.'

When a women waits on her husband hand and foot, as a servant, she is labeled by secular heathen society as a doormat. Liberals consider her a slave, doing a demeaning job, cooped up like an animal; but when a woman is a servant for complete strangers in a restaurant, she is considered acceptable. I once heard a young woman make the shameful statement: “I'm not waiting on any man hand and foot!” This was a Christian woman who had attended a fundamental Bible college for a couple years, but her heart wasn't right with God, and she had a wrong attitude. She quit Bible college and started working in a night club tavern. Before long she started committing adultery with a professional Hockey player for the Chicago Black Hawks. After having a fling, that wicked man shunned the young woman, who had fallen in love with him, because he didn't want to divorce his wife. So that young woman had a nervous breakdown, eventually getting into illegal drugs and after floating around from one job to another, out of church and a mess, died of a drug overdose. Satan is a beautiful liar young people! The Devil will destroy your life IF YOU LET HIM!

That young lady made several mistakes. First, she never should have quit church. She never should have left Bible college. She never should have went to work in a night club and bar. She never should have allowed a bad attitude to creep into her mind, succumbing to peer pressure. She never should have adopted the world's ungodly attitude that she wasn't going to wait on any man hand and foot. Staying in the Word of God is the only defense you have against all these things! I am warning you young people—This sick, perverse, gender-bending, reprobate, perverse would today will have you turned around backwards if you let them. GET INTO THE KING JAMES BIBLE!!! Think like God thinks by studying His inspired Word. Philippians 2:5, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Little things affect big things. That young woman's small attitude problems led to a gigantic destroyed life! If you think that it is demeaning for a woman to be a keeper at home, in subjection to her own husband, you have a hole big enough in your head to drive a semi truck through! I know what I'm talking about. Little attitude changes can adversely affect your life my friend. You need to memorize the six verses of Psalms chapter 1...
Psalms 1:1-6, “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
This world is absolutely filled with ungodly advice. Sin in everywhere! There is no job as important, worthy, honorable and rewarding as being a wife and mother at home! Would to God that all women were married and keepers at home. I am sick of Bob Jones University producing more nurses, who are 40 year old virgins. They are religious and weird! Something is wrong with them, warped by the unbiblical mindset that they need a career instead of a husband and children. Listen young woman, God didn't create you to be a nurse, or a secretary somewhere, God made you to STAND BY YOUR MAN! 

Always Be On Guard

Proverbs 10:1, “My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.”

Sin is everywhere! I was playing my steel guitar at Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii in 2011 years ago. An attractive middle aged white couple came up and complimented my music. They saw that my neck pain was making it difficult for me to carry my equipment to the hotel where I was staying, so they kindly offered to help. We sat in the hotel lobby for awhile. All of a sudden, right in front of her husband, she started lifting up her skirt to me, asking if we could all go up to my hotel room. I carefully didn't respond, simply looking at her husband, and I pretended I hadn't seen anything. 

I realized later they were swingers, staying at a gay hotel a block north of the Queen Kapiolani Hotel where I was staying. Needless to say that made an impression in my mind. I befriended them with God's love. When they left, I kindly waved goodbye, and saw the man scolding his wife. I had told them I was a Christian at the beginning of our conversation, so I am not sure what he said to her. If I hadn't been living a life of staying right with the Lord, instinctively doing what was right, I would have gladly accepted her invite to commit adultery. Please read our text Bible verse again dear reader, Proverbs 10:1, “My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.”

Sin will ALWAYS present itself to you, I don't care who you are. Life is all about making a series of decisions, each and every day. The decisions that we make today will affect tomorrow. Sin is fun, or else people wouldn't do it. What saith the Scripture? Proverbs 20:17, “Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.” I am so glad that I didn't accept her invitation to sin that day in the privacy of my hotel room; but to be honest, there is a sinful part of my soul that wishes I had. If her husband hadn't been present, it might have been a completely different story. I am single, living alone, so I have to be careful and be on guard. We all struggle with sin, in different areas. It all really comes down to how much you love God. It is indeed possible to love the Lord, and yet still commit a horrible sin in your life, simply because your priorities are wrong. Can a man truly love his wife and cheat on her? Yes, it is possible, but he does not have a perfect love for her. His personal character is tainted and corrupt. This television generation is always at the brink of sinning, weak and demoralized by the filth on TV. 

All normal healthy men struggle with sexual sins, which we read about in 1st Peter 2:11, “Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;A war is comprised of individual battles. It all starts in the mind! The lusts of the flesh are incredibly powerful temptations, for both men and women (but especially men), and the way to win the war is to prepare for each battle with the inspired Word of God. Memorize helpful Scriptures! Psalms 119:9, “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.” Psalms 119:11, “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” Listen to plenty of fundamental Bible preaching. Surround yourself with Christian friends who desire to think, live and do right at all times! Living right is a yoke of wood, it is frustrating; but succumbing to sin eventually brings a yoke of iron. It may not happen right away, and you may think you are getting away with sin, but judgment day is inevitable (Hebrews 9:27; Hebrews 13:4). No one can escape the judgment of God (Hebrews 4:13; Ecclesiastes 12:13-14; Romans 14:10-12). 

Nothing escapes the sight of God (Psalms 139:1-6). Ecclesiastes 8:12-13, “Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him: But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.” If you can sin without any conviction from the indwelling Holy Spirit, then you are not saved. 1st John 3:15, “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.” I hate the sins that I have committed in my life. I wish I could go back and take the high road instead of the low road. I am thankful for most of the times that I chose the high path. All it takes is five minutes to destroy your entire life!!! Albeit, a person's mistakes do not define who they are.

Moreover, I thank God for the precious blood of Jesus that redeems us as sinners. 1st John 1:7b, “the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” Always be on guard against temptation rearing its ugly head. But if you have sinned, “Go and sin no more,” as Jesus told the woman caught in the act of adultery in John chapter eight. John 3:17 says Jesus did not come into the world to condemn anyone, but to save sinners! Amen! The Law of God already condemns the human race because of sin (Galatians 3:10). As with a curious child who needs to touch a hot stove, before learning not to touch things; so also do people need to be burned by sin, to learn not to play with the Devil's fire! We don't hear enough Bible preaching today against sin! That is why the altars are empty in the churches at invitation time. Sin thrills and then it kills. Sin fascinates and then it assassinates.
