The RCC is founded on the gnostic fallacy of inherited sin. It is impossible for man to be constitutionally corrupt at birth since God is responsible for the constitution of man and Satan has no part in it (Genesis 2; Ecc 7: 29; Psalm 139: 13-15; John 1: 9; Romans 1: 19). Jesus declared children to be innocent (Matt 18). The constitution of man is, as the Jews have always taught: moral conscience and free will (Romans 2: 15; Deut 1: 39) Anybody who claims God gave man his so-called sinful nature does not understand the nature of God. Such a thing is beyond blasphemous. You make God himself the greatest worker of iniquity of all and the Holy Spirit of God a malicious and malignant spirit (Job 33: 4)
Elements of RC doctrine are vastly superior to Reform doctrine because Reform doctrine represents the next and most likely final stage in Satan's overall plan to destroy the real gospel of repentance and faith proven by deeds.
I am sure you have a very eloquent and long-winded dissertation that neatly disarms Christ's own words: Rev 3: 5, John 15 etc. But what is the point of attempting to run a race as commanded if it is impossible to lose? The early saints understood the road to salvation is a pitched battle for your very soul. Mark 7: 13.
He that believeth on the son SHOULD NOT perish, it does not say WILL NOT perish. More twisting and wresting.
For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. Romans 11: 21, 22.
There goes your ridiculous doctrine of Eternal Security. And if your religion is all about holiness as you claim, why would you need a doctrine of imputed righteousness to declare you righteous when you are in fact unrighteous?
Little children, let no man deceive you, the one who does what is right is righteous, even as he is righteous. 1 John 3: 7
The Reform Doctrine of Faith Alone is not the biblical doctrine of faith alone. The Reform doctrine of Faith Alone, that is salvation apart from works or deeds, is condemned in James 2: 17-20 as useless and the faith of devils. Read it for yourself.
Once and for all, Luther was not only a heretic, blasphemer, he wasn't human. He was an animal, an antichrist devil.
"No sin can separate us from Him, even if we were to kill or commit adultery thousands of times each day. Do you think such an exalted lamb paid merely a small price with a meagre sacrifice for our sins?" Luther to Melanchthon, 1521.
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind. nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the Kingdom of God. 1 Cor 6: 9, 10
For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained unto this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. Jude 4
Your entire cult religion is founded on the ravings of a deranged, demon-possessed lunatic. It's time to wake up.
Perfect example how Reform Theology twists scripture to teach false doctrine. Just for the unjust means unjust in a former state. You do not remain unjust.
Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 Cor 7: 1
For without holiness no man shall see the Lord. Heb 12: 14.
Is anybody beginning to get the picture how Reform Theology works? It's actually extremely devious. You should have quoted the entire passage in Romans 6 since the wages of sin remains death, whether you claim to be saved or not.
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether sin unto death, or obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, ye WERE the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from your heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you ... now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. Romans 6: 16
The whole thing is one gigantic inflated balloon of hot air.
PROMISING YOU LIBERTY WHILE YOU REMAIN THE SERVANT OF CORRUPTION. 2 Peter 2: 19
A man-centered gospel is you doing nothing and God does everything, the core of Luther's blasphemous theology.
"God does not save those who are only imaginary sinners. Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong, but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world." Luther to Melanchthon, 1521
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us. Heb 12: 1
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. 1 Cor 9: 24.
Paul understood the obligation to attain eternal life is upon your shoulders.
He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I wall not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. Rev 3: 5.
So did Christ.
Because judgment is according to deeds. The deeds of faith (Matt 16: 27; Matt 25; Luke 6; Luke 19: 12-27; John 5: 28, 29; Rom 2: 6-11; James 2; Rev 2 &3).
John UK wrote: If Jesus didn't die in your place, you'll have to pay the price of your sin yourself.
I suggest you look up the Ransom Theory of the Atonement taught by the Church for 1000 years before the Roman Catholic Church came up with the Penal Substitution you all teach, before you make any more daft comments.
Seriously Luther wasn't just a heretic he was a blasphemer of monumental proportions:
"Since, therefore, God moves and does all in all, He necessarily moves and does all in Satan and the wicked man." Bondage of the will p 86,87.
"God is light, and in him is no darkness at all" 1 John 1: 5
"We are conquered if we try too conscientiously not to sin at all. So when the devil says to you: do not drink," answer him: "I will drink, and right freely, just because you tell me not to. Would that I could contrive some great sin to spite the devil, that he might understand I was conscious of no sin whatever." Life and Letters of Martin Luther, p 324, 325
"And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity" Matt 7: 23.
Luther was a reprobate. You are all under Satan's perfect system of deception and in utter darkness.
The 2nd biggest heretic in the history of mankind after Augustine, precipitating the Reformed holocaust, resulting in the culling of more souls than Hitler could have dreamed possible. The reason every professed Christian today is expert at twisting scripture to justify their sin and so fogged in their thinking they are unreachable. Nobody has the faintest clue what biblical reconciliation with God actually is. A simple misunderstanding of faith alone and not of works. Transition from the Jewish Law of circumcision and ritual sacrifice to the living deeds of faith by which you will be judged was the purpose of Paul's ministry. Luther twisted scripture to the point of absurdity. Out goes repentance and faith proven by deeds and in comes salvation by doing absolutely zilch, justification in sin, no strings attached, nothing required of you, strip man's ability to do right so he is unable to produce deeds worthy of repentance and therefore must be saved in his sins. Coupled with the Roman Catholic substitutionary atonement fallacy and the lie of original sin and you have the doors of the Kingdom sealed shut to those who would enter in. Surely it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment than for Martin Luthifer. Oh and Hitler was a big fan. No wonder.
NeedHim wrote: Spurgeon: Morality may keep you out of jail, but it takes the blood of Jesus Christ to keep you out of hell.
That's because Spurgeon was a lying false teacher, Satan's minister of righteousness, a worker of iniquity out of his own mouth. The definition of God's grace is found in Titus 2: 11 and it has nothing to do with covering endless foul-ups because you mess up all the time and nobody can live up to God's high standard. First time I've been on this site for ages and instantly I'm confronted with the same old rotten stench of Reform doctrine, the ultimate system of lies and deception, Roman Catholicism repackaged with a humanistic spin of do nothing, Jesus obeyed for you, total depravity, if you lift one finger to make your calling sure you are trying to earn your salvation and that's the biggest heresy of all; don't worry about your sin the cross has it all covered. Every single doctrine of Reform Theology twists and tortures scripture out of shape into the precise opposite of what the Bible actually teaches. Trash and strong delusion, the lot of it.
Having listened to Paul Washer condemn babies with the most vitriolic language you ever heard in your life out of a pulpit (All men are born evil, youtube), it's hard to take anything on this site seriously. I know, I know, how dare I say such things about our poster boys, comment deleted by administrator, blah, blah, blah. Seriously the man is not a human being, he is a devil posing as a human being. He promises you liberty with great swelling words of emptiness while you remain slave to your corruption. Nobody is deceived who does not want to be deceived. Having observed and listened to the comments, the true scale of the catastrophic effects Reform Theology has on the human mind, numbing, searing the conscience, is only too apparent. Pure Babylon. Scripture is distorted with scientific precision; it takes my breath away. It's mindboggling. Plagues. That's where it's all heading. You think you are going up in the rapture and God is bringing the plagues on you in full measure. That, ladies and gentleman, is what strong delusion is all about.
The Reformation is no better. If the doctrines of the Reformation are true, there's no need for a Devil, the Holy Spirit of God is doing the Devil's job for him. The Holy Spirit of God is whispering in your ear, you are eternally secure no matter what you do. The Holy Spirit of God is whispering in your ear you can go ahead and sin because God will still see you as imputed righteous. The Holy Spirit of God is whispering in your ear you aren't perfect, you fall short, you can't live up to God's high standard so don't even try. Trust in the finished work of the cross and you're in no matter what. The Holy Spirit is whispering in your ear you were born that way so it's not your fault, you can go ahead and sin because your flesh sins and your spirit remains pure.
The Protestant Reformation has all the elements of an Antichrist Beast System like the Catholic Church before it. It promotes lawlessness in the name of righteousness, magnifies itself above God by forcing Christ to be a minister of its sin, condemns babies when Christ declared them innocent, is under strong delusion because it takes pleasure in unrighteousness, changes times and laws, like the rapture timing, remoulds the very character of God into Bozo the Clown playing peekaboo with its hypocrisy and wickedness.
He is no less of a pastor than any of the pastors on here. Hypocrisy is the word. Hypocrisy.
We're all born sinners and mess up all the time coz nobody's perfect and we're just sinners saved by grace and Jesus obeyed for us so we don't have to do anything except trust in the finished work of the cross. The Holy Spirit of God gives us permission to live in our sins coz we're imputed righteous and we can't lose our salvation and anybody who demands us to lift one finger to be found worthy to enter the Kingdom is a legalist teaching a works based gospel and a rank heretic. We spend all our time condemning everybody else under the sun, just so long as our doctrines abstain us from all responsibility and God's to blame anyway, coz he gave us our sinful nature in the first place, bless him. We do all the same iniquity the world does, but theyâ€™re going to hell because they didn't repeat the sinner's prayer. Oh and we're all going to be swooped up to heaven in a pretribulation rapture as a reward for our abominations.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalonians 2: 11,12

Yeah well, the not of works, faith alone, total depravity, Imputed righteousness, Eternal Security, Penal Substitution, born in sin, saved in sin, live in sin, die in sin, Antichrist theology presented on this site and just about every other source on the entire planet with one or two very small exceptions, renders it unnecessary. Jesus obeyed for you, believes for you, repents for you, pampers you like a spoiled child and you do absolutely nothing except trust in the finished work of the cross, otherwise you are trusting in your own righteousness and that's taboo. Your in, no matter what. Until the Day of Reckoning and you discover it was all a pack of lies. The whole lot of it.
Whatsoever a man sows, that shall he reap. Sow to the flesh and you will of the flesh reap corruption. Which means of course, that Jesus did not live a perfect life on your behalf, so you don't have to bother. Nor is his righteousness transferred to your account whilst you remain unrighteous; nor do you have an advocate with the father to cover gross sins of the flesh you willfully commit because you think all your sins are atoned for past, present and future. You will each be judged according to your deeds done in the body, and those deeds will determine the outcome of your salvation, for God is not mocked. You may cut Ephesians 2: 8,9 out of your Bible with a razor blade and paste it to your forehead and you will still be judged by your deeds, though your convoluted theology and doctrines of men and demons convince you otherwise. Not of works means the atonement of past sins only, not by circumcision, but by repentance and faith proven by deeds. After that you must expend every effort to make it into the Kingdom. You are not born sinful, there is no sinful nature to blame it all on and you are all in complete darkness, trusting in a false gospel that will lead you into the pit at the end. It does not matter what you believe, you are subject to God's judgment in the end.
Martin Luther. Ugh, what a nightmare. Number 3 in the unholy trinity of ultimate heretics and Satan's generals, Augustine, Calvin and Luther. Not of works: Luther's major trick. Paul's not of works means not of circumcision, rituals and adherence to the ceremonial law, themed throughout his letters. Luther twists this into the faith of devils of James 2:19. Faith is never alone because the very definition of faith is FAITHFULNESS. So the curse and course of Pharisee fallacies of Reformed Theology is set in stone. Born in sin. Augustine. Total Depravity and Election. Calvin. Not of Works. Luther. The Pharisee doctrines of men and demons, closing the doors of the Kingdom against men, 3 strikes and you are out. Born sinful, you are now a victim of your sin nature. Man is absolved. Election, your are predestined to glory so there is no pressure on you to do anything. Man is absolved. Not of works. Early Saints understood perfectly the critical nature of conditional salvation and what you must do to inherit eternal life. At the Reformation we decide they're all heretics because Luther figured out we get saved by doing nothing. It's all grace. How convenient. Reform Theology is Satan's ultimate system of theology. Like evolution, everybody believes it and its a pack of lies
Great Sermon! Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Luke 12: 1,2.
The Protestant Reformation betrayed Christ long ago, and all it's ministers are Judas's. Don't you think it would be better to deal with betrayal in house before condemning others?
Jesus said: Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. Matt 18: 3-5
Incomprehensible it is, that the entire system of Reform Theology usurps, betrays, overthrows Christ's authority and condemns, passes judgement upon, and otherwise declares a newborn child as a depraved animal, for no other reason than to underpin its antichrist system of false theology. Talk about condemning the guiltless!!!!!!!!!
Talk about hypocrisy and betrayal.
Upon this lie the entire system of perverse Pharisee theology is founded.
Born in sin, saved in sin, live in sin, die in sin. The language of the Dragon.
Great Sermon! So much usable material don't know where to start. Brilliant. False teachers certainly do appear like lambs but speak the language of the dragon. Taking away man's ability to do what's right in the guise of preserving divine sovereignty is strike one, destroying the concept of repentance. As a result you get justified by grace in your sins and cleaned up later, in clear violation of the doctrine according to godliness: you cannot get saved in your sins.
Strike 2, righteousness must then be imputed because personal righteousness is not possible, when it is, Matt 5:20, 2 Tim 2:21 etc.
Righteousness is what you do not what you receive.
Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 1 John 3:7.
The false teacher covers himself by accusing those who test what he says against scripture and finds it full of deadly error, as backhanded backbiters. Strike 3 and he's out.
There's not enough scrutiny of false teaching on this site. You are one of the few exceptions. Great stuff.
Ultimately its all rooted in Roman Catholic dogma and gnosticism.
The only thing I would disagree is Spurgeon, Pink, Tozer etc. Purveyors of lawless doctrines of men and demons.
Judge the gays, judge the Catholics. Judge everybody, because we're so super and we got it right. Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
Your doctrines stink in the eyes of God as the gays or the Catholics. Every professing Christian condemns and does the same, but it's okay because we're under grace not law, nobody's perfect and if I say I have no sin I'm a liar blah, blah.
Your mighty men that you worship are all liars and frauds. White, Washer, MacArthur, Piper, smooth-talkers? One day they will face the ultimate judge and present their filthy rags they never stop talking about.
They will have to explain what gave them the right to usurp the authority of the Master and teach Antichrist doctrine. They pass judgement upon a tiny innocent babe, the very manifestation of God's glory, and declare it a depraved animal, upon which their entire system of perverse theology is founded.
Listen to the Master and keep your mouth SHUT.
"Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me." Matthew 18.
SermonAudio needs to be more transparent. You permit challenging comments and that's good and better than most, but you shouldn't show respect of persons to pin-up boy preachers like MacArthur, piper, Washer and James White, who are all liars with no truth in them. Post everything, as long as there's no profanity, let the truth come out and suppress it not. 95% of the content on this site is all trash, and will continue to be so, as long as it's based on the fallacies of Reform Theology. The lies of Calvinism, Eternal Security, not of works, the lie man is born sinful and comes into the world a victim. Total Depravity? Does anyone understand how truly ridiculous that is? Reform Theology is nothing more than Roman Catholicism repackaged, Luther was a flaming heretic and you all need to take a long, hard look at yourselves, because you are all Catholics, and PHARISEES, immersed in the doctrines of men and demons. Augustine is the father of you all and Augustine was a devil. Happy delusions of the strong variety.
Whilst typing this I opened my Bible at random and these words leapt out of the page:
Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Luke 12: 1,2
Martin Luther, Jew-hating reprobate, now wonder Hitler admired him. Not of works means you don't have any responsibility to do anything to merit eternal life and you have a hope for salvation while you continue in sin. The gospel of the Apostles of Christ replaced by the gospel of Augustine, mutated into the gospel of Calvin and Luther and thus the gospel of Satan, taught in every Church, Sunday school, pulpit, by every street preacher and evangelist, website, blog and mission in the entire world, leaven of the Pharisees making null and void the commandments of God by their tradition. Born in sin, saved in sin, die in sin. The genius of the sin nature lie: you remain in bondage to your sins, the old man remains alive and does not die, and IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT! Perfect.
