Thanks for the clarification Christopher. I know that accusation has been presented by others. I am sorry for misconstruing your comment.

I pray to always accept correction from the brethren, if any of you desire to correct me, please do so. I know you would do it out of love. I do include my e-mail just in case any may seek to do so privately. I am a work in progress, and I KNOW I fall way short. I don't say this as empty words, I say this from the heart. Please pray the Lord will continue His refining process in me....

It is never my desire to 'fight' Christopher. It is my desire to expose double tongued sinners who add confusion to these threads. Case in point, John UK just recently claimed 'amazing grace' -and this is true. However, he also stated this on a now closed thread, "It is rather a nonsense to say that either Billy Graham or Franklin Graham are accursed and preach an accursed gospel. Why would God save anyone through their crusade ministries? Is he not sovereign after all?"..."The way Billy preaches, the Calvinist says that he is wrong to say that God loves all men and wishes for their salvation. But any who are listening to his wonderful proclamation of Jesus Christ, his eternal Sonship, his incarnation, life without sin, death as an atonement for sins, and resurrection, if they are called by the Lord, they will repent and believe the good news." This is a direct violation of 'amazing grace'. IF one adheres to the biblical doctrines of grace, then that person MUST renounce any teachings contrary to that. The more we allow ecumenism and works-based religion to fill these threads, the more muddied the waters become. Yes, I have taken MUCH heat over my desire to show the error that others prefer to overlook. So be it. I will not bring up BG and FG again, the evidence is obvious

John UK,

Are you now saying you never defended those who proclaim a decision style gospel, which is based on a human work?


Dr. Tim, I agree, any can be saved. The point is we cannot add to the gospel any work, such as making a decision, inviting Jesus into your heart, etc. The results are up to God, we must let the word and the Spirit do a work. Sinners who repent and believe do so because God has opened their understanding and regenerated them, gifting them with faith and salvation {Eph. 2:8-9}, all by His grace.

John UK,

It is well known you defended the Grahams and their ecumenical decisional style gospel, there's no need to go back and copy and paste any of your comments concerning that.

You stated amazing grace, which is a contradiction of what you stated in defending the Grahams style of religion. You bring confusion because you try to have one foot in the doctrines of grace and the other in the works based camp. You cannot have it both ways John. IF you adhere to the gospel of grace solely, does that mean you now renounce defending the works based gospel preached by those you once defended?

Dr. Tim,
You quoted this "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)" I ask you to consider this, who is Peter addressing in that text? Notice this, 'toward usward', he is writing to believers. God is not willing that any believer perish, and they won't. All refers to believers as well, in keeping with the context of the verse.

JohnUK, to clear up past confusion, you claim 'amazing grace' - does that now mean you reject the decisional regeneration message, that is based on a work and NOT God's grace, spewed out by those you previously defended? I ask because you bring confusion to the threads, stating one thing one time and something else another time. You need to consider your confusing ways and determine what it is you actually believe.

Brother US - ' It would be good if we all spent more time praying, repenting, mourning our lack of whole-hearted obedience, weeping over our lackluster love for our precious Savior, crying out for those who know not God that He would grant them repentance, sowing the Word, being more diligent in our mortification, walking closer to our Lord in humility, spent more time in meditation and memorization of the Word of God, etc." IF we are honest with ourselves, this is true of all of us.

"Ministers are but the pipes and organs. It is the Holy Ghost breathing in them that makes their words effectual: “While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy
Ghost fell on all them which heard the word” (Act 10:44). The Spirit in the Word illuminates and converts. When the Spirit touches a heart, it dissolves with tears:“I will pour...upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace...and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn” (Zec 12:10)." Thomas Watson, from 'the doctrine of repentance' at http://www.chapellibrary.org/files/1613/7658/4053/dor2.pdf

Dr. Tim
What good does it do to spread an accursed gospel that has no power to save? That was my point; many who adhere to the biblical doctrines of grace speak of Christ and His atoning work, as well as plead with sinners to repent and believe. So, your accusation is false.

It isn't 'criticizing', it's pointing out the obvious...most do NOT even know what the true Gospel is! They add to it, like Moody and Billy Graham and a host of others. Telling sinners to make a decision, invite Jesus into their hearts, accept Him, etc is not the Gospel. It is a work - Ephesians 2:8-9 clearly states salvation is NOT of any 'work'. If you are going to preach a works based salvation, then don't bother, for all you will do is make goats out of goats. As sister MS rightly pointed out, "Much of contemporay Christianity is sick because it lacks a doctrinal foundation". If we don't have the foundations right, how is it sinners will be saved? The message is tainted by man, God doesn't use tampered half-truths, which is no truth. The power of salvation is the preaching of the pristine Gospel that calls sinners to repent and believe - a command - not a choice. The results are up to God, not us. {Romans 1:16}

Concerning Moody, "While Moody tried to tone down the emotionalism behind the Invitation System, he still used it in his crusades and he still held to the same theology as Charles Finney although he was not as eloquent or outspoken about it. Concerning the conversion of the sinner, Moody said, “Regeneration is coming to Christ as a poor, lost, ruined sinner, and taking life from Him.” At another time, he said, “You believe and then you are converted . . . God would not call men to believe, unless they had the power to do so.”33
In other words, man converts himself. The new birth is us “taking life” from Jesus Christ. It is not us “receiving life” from Jesus. It is us taking it. We believe and then we are made alive." from
http://www.justthesimpletruth.com/what-is-wrong-with-the-invitation-system-2/

Moody merely followed in Finney's footsteps, except was a bit lower key than Finney. Again, God will not use error; when you tamper with His truth you suck the life out of it. That is hardly a 'great evangelist'. There is only one way sinners are saved.....by grace.

This is a great article on labeling, such as 'Calvinism' - http://www.teachingtheword.org/apps/articles/?articleid=76044&columnid=5445

Indeed brother. I recall listening to Ray Comfort evangelize, he ended by asking the sinner he was addressing when they might think they will repent....I cringed!

Many look for 'instant' results, thinking they must see such in order to know if they were 'effective' or not. Romans 1:16 is a forgotten text. It is God who saves, by HIS power and HIS grace. The TRUE, pristine Gospel of Christ must be proclaimed and the results will be of God, not of man or his eloquence in presenting what he deems to be truth.

I once heard a celebrity preacher state 'many popishly claim a sinner saved' without any 'evidence' or 'fruit'. How sad; many will answer for their foolish methods of 'getting sinners saved'.

The Grace of God

“ excellent message ”
Great preaching, today's brand of 'religion' cannot distinguish grace from mercy, and teach God desires 'all men' to be saved. As you point out, the grace of God now BRINGS, it doesn't just propose, it brings salvation....and only to God's elect. Yes, keep religion OUT of the secular school system. It is the PARENTS responsibility to teach their children - yes and amen! This truly was an edifying and Christ honoring message, to God be the glory.

Sinners damn themselves. If God passes over some and leaves them in their hardness of heart, it is of no fault of God.

Do you think any sinner deserves to be saved, or that God owes sinners anything?

Brother Observer, excellent comment. Another problem with SOME of, not ALL of, today's 'evangelists' is they do not even know what the Gospel is, or who God is. They tell sinners God loves them, then proceed to coerce them to do something in order to be saved. That isn't the biblical Gospel at all. I recall Christ stated 'repent and believe', I do NOT recall Christ telling sinners He loved them and would save them IF they did___________ {fill in the blank}.

I've asked those who hold to universalism if Christ died for the sin of unbelief; 1 John 1:7 says the blood of Christ cleanses from all sin. So, IF He died for ALL, then hell is presently empty because Christ's blood has cleansed them from their sin of unbelief. We know this isn't so, we know God's wrath abides on those who do not believe. It's strange how they trot out the 'god' of their understanding and ignore the verses that prove their error.

Good to see you posting again brother, this forum needs seasoned saints such as yourself

If SA removes my comment, then they MUST remove every one of yours, where you belittle others and insinuate they have a 'lack of sense', that their comments are 'sporadic interventions blah blah blah' that they are on a 'tirade', etc. It seems your comment from Paisley holds true, the rock hit you and now you yelp and demand the obvious be removed.

Another Michael,

Perhaps you care to back this accusation with proof, "Interesting, they practice the very same things they accuse others of, interesting indeed."

Tell me, who here practices ecumenism, who here states they adhere to the doctrines of grace yet defends the Grahams and their accursed decisionism gospel? Can you name names and provide us with evidence?

BTW, the verse misquoted by J.UK and pulled out of context in an attempt to further belittle me doesn't even fit the circumstances of this situation. Flippant use of God's word as a hammer to beat over one's head is never a good idea.

Why is it you didn't bother answering my question concerning the blood of Christ cleansing from ALL sin? Does that apply to the sin of unbelief?

Making snide comments and speaking vaguely is very childish. Be a man and make your case clearly against those you claim practice the things 'they' accuse 'others' of.

It would be beneficial for you to read Frank's comment, the quote he gave is priceless.

God's richest blessings to you as well Bro. Observer!

Brother Frank, you nailed it, as usual. A little leaven leavens the whole lump. Embracing one who refuses to repent of supporting ecumenism and a works based gospel is tragic. It gives the 'okay' to go ahead a mix the gospel of grace with the accursed works based gospel. Feed a cancer and watch it grow. If you don't even have the foundations right - the gospel of grace and grace ALONE - how can you be of use to God? Mixing a bit of truth with a bit of error will not work. God does not honor this at all.

This quote from 'Bonny' is noteworthy as well - "The commission is not to change the gospel but to preach it faithfully as delivered." Zeal for God's pure, pristine truth should consume us. A little poison kills. J.UK has staunchly defended BG/FG and has refused to repent of this, yet claims to hold to the biblical doctrines of grace. This is double speak, and that's never okay.

Frank - Your quote is spot on! "a love for the Church that will not tolerate false teachers who desire to lead the sheep astray and to devour them" - that is the issue at hand. Defending the false gospel of the Grahams speaks volumes.....

Lurker,

The fact that J.UK staunchly defends the ecumenical Grahams and their accursed gospel should be of grave concern. It certainly was to bro. Observer. Talk is cheap, if one states a belief against free will, then turns around and defends it in defending decisionism, isn't that evidence something isn't right?
I asked him if he would now renounce the decisionism gospel he defended prior....crickets. To have it both ways is to be ecumenical - you can embrace that if you want. I shudder to think what 'gospel' he presents to the lost. If we are not willing to 'break fellowship' over 'disagreements', then we are in danger of becoming just as ecumenical as John UK is. This is not just my personal opinion, this has been discussed privately among others who have the same mindset. Embracing two gospels is much more than a disagreement. When he was warned a while back {not by me}, he never heeded that warning. There's a reason the Apostle Paul calls a works- based gospel accursed, and he never embraced anyone who defended such. God forbid we overlook error for the sake of unity.

Again, J.UK has proved what I pointed out, those who 'out' him he attacks, belittles and accuses. You didn't read the verses I attached from Matthew did you? First, you falsely accuse Kev, and now me...go figure. People with discernment have stated this J.UK, and not necessarily publically on this forum - you have been outed for what you are, a double-tongued man who delights in being right. You will argue your jello theology all day every day because pride insists on it. As I stated, you need to get a job and not take money from kind-hearted brethren who work for a living. I know of another 'evangelist' who refuses to work with his hands and begs for donations; if God were behind your work you would not have to ask anyone for a dime.

So, you state you believe the will is NOT FREE, does that mean you now renounce those who preach otherwise? Do you renounce the Grahams and their works-based gospel, decisionism, which is in direct violation of God's gospel of grace? This same gospel is preached by the likes of Luis Palau as well.

Yes or no is all you have to say.

Oh, btw, the last thread got closed LONG AFTER I stopped commenting, so again, another 'accusation' by you that proves to be false. No surprise

The example given by Kev proves what has been observed by some, J.UK uses vagueness and double speak. His theology is like jello, hard to nail down. That is exactly what he wants it to be.
Satan is the master of confusion, and God is a God of order. If you cannot clearly state what you believe, and IF you use double talk, that is a danger zone.

He then likes to turn it back on those who expose him, and spends countless hours/days in the process. Most have jobs to go to and haven't the time to spend hours on a forum. Perhaps J.UK should do likewise, get a job to occupy himself and work with his hands in hopes to support others who may need it. 1 Timothy 5:8 still is in affect today....

"But I tell you that men will give an account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12:36,37
