Do Jews Need Jesus?

Catholics Should Not Try To Convert Jews” according to Pope Francis in a recent document. Actually, the Vatican’s heresy specifically states that “Catholics must refrain from active attempts to convert Jews.” 

The Apostle Paul must have really been misguided when he wrote “to the Jew first.” I’m sure Pastor John Hagee is shouting since he’s been teaching and practicing this heretical postion for years. Heck, he doesn’t even believe Jesus came as the Messiah for the Jews. 

Alright! After that brief vent, you will be better served to read Dr Michael Brown’s position on the issue. He speaks with greater clarity and charity than I.

“The Vatican issued an important statement that made many great points but fell flat on one of the most crucial issues. Because their statement declares that Jews don’t need to put their faith in Jesus, I have written this article to set the record straight. You can also watch my video addressing this issue as well.”

Some Honest Questions for Joseph Prince

Dr Michael Brown is one of the most theologically astute polemicist in the charismatic community. He speaks with clarity and charity when thexposing the “hyper-grace” heresy. In doing so, he fulfills Jesus inspired imperative in the letter of Jude.

 “…contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain ungodly men… have crept into the church, perverting the grace of god by sanctioning unrestrained-unrepentant behavior which flagrantly denies the credibility of one’s confession in the Lordship of Jesus Christ”   [rghanner paraphrase]

Dr Brown is at his anointed best in his recent open letter which poses eleven penetrating questions to Joseph Prince, one of the chief proponents of the “hyper-grace “heresy. I’ve extracted a sampling so as to evoke further reading of the entire article.

>If God has pronounced your future sins forgiven in the same way He has pronounced your past sins forgiven, why do Paul and other New Testament writers address these very sins in their letters, and why does Jesus address them in Revelation 2-3? We know that God doesn’t bring our past sins up to us, since He has forgiven and “forgotten” them. Why then does He bring our present sins up to us in the New Testament, even warning us about the dangers of walking in those sins, if they have also been forgiven and forgotten in advance?

>A leading hyper-grace teacher claims that the doctrine of progressive sanctification is a “spiritually murderous lie.” Does that mean that grace preachers like Charles Spurgeon, who believed in progressive sanctification, taught this alleged lie? And if “progressive sanctification” simply means to walk out our holiness with the help of the Spirit, what is so dangerous about this teaching? Put another way, do you reject the concept that the one who made us holy now calls us to live holy lives in thought, word and deed, thereby “completing our sanctification in the fear of God” (2 Cor 7:1)? Doesn’t Paul say we are called saints (that is who we are) and called to be saints (that is how we live)? (See 1 Cor. 1:2.)

>Since you believe we are not to judge our salvation by our conduct, how can we avoid self-deception? I know that you are against certain types of self-examination lest you become “sin conscious” and take your eyes off the finished work of the cross, but what do you make of verses that state that we know we have passed from death to life only if we live a certain way (like 1 John 3:14)? If I understand you correctly, you would question the salvation of someone who demonstrated no change of life and continued to walk in unrepentant sin. But doesn’t this mean that, on some level, you are looking at your “performance” to verify your salvation?Do you see any possible danger in emphasizing that it is impossible for a believer to lose his or her salvation? Of course, we could debate whether the Bible teaches this at all, but simply as a matter of experience, many of us have encountered very lost people—drunkards, fornicators, without the slightest interest in God (see 1 Cor. 6:9-10)—who have then assured us that they were saved because it was impossible for them to lose their salvation. So on a practical level, do you feel it’s important to add any scriptural caveats to your teaching of eternal security and, if so, how can you do this without putting an emphasis on “performance”?

Franklin Graham Leaves GOP Over Planned Parenthood Funding

155310_131204690269054_7876654_nIn a world of compromised Christian leaders, Franklin Graham stands out as a genuine gospel center-prophetic minister to the nation who fears God more than any man. I personally view Graham as a modern hero of the biblical faith,agree whole heartily with his statements and intend to follow his lead. Republican leadership have demonstrated they are completely hollow core and all but owned by the reprobate Democrat party.

Rgh

“Evangelist Franklin announced Tuesday he is leaving the Republican Party following the GOP’s cave to Democrats last week in the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill.

Graham particularly likened the continued taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood in the bill to the funding of Nazi concentration camps.

“Shame on the Republicans and the Democrats for passing such a wasteful spending bill last week,” he posted on Facebook. “And to top it off, funding Planned Parenthood!”

Graham said the funding of Planned Parenthood was a huge loss for America, adding:

After all of the appalling facts revealed this year about Planned Parenthood, our representatives in Washington had a chance to put a stop to this, but they didn’t. There’s no question—taxpayers should not be paying for abortions! Abortion is murder in God’s eyes. Seeing and hearing Planned Parenthood talk nonchalantly about selling baby parts from aborted fetuses with utter disregard for human life is reminiscent of Joseph Mengele and the Nazi concentration camps! That should’ve been all that was needed to turn off the faucet for their funding. Nothing was done to trim this 2,000 page, $1.1 trillion budget. This is an example of why I have resigned from the Republican Party and declared myself Independent. I have no hope in the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, or Tea Party to do what is best for America. Unless more godly men and women get in this process and change this wicked system, our country is in for trouble.”

Is It Possible to Leave the Church and Not Abandon Jesus?

images

“Sometimes people become jaded by the failures of church leaders, causing them to want to leave the local assembly for good. But is it possible to turn one’s back on the Church without essentially doing the same to Christ?

 

That’s the question posed in last Wednesday’s episode of the Ask John Piper audio series, where the Evangelical pastor tackles tough theological and pastoral issues.

To the proposition of leaving the Church, but not Christ, Piper offers a simple answer: “If you do that, you are walking away from Jesus.”

Piper explained that Jesus founded the Church and established Apostles as its foundation. “And then He built it with prophets and teachers and pastors and ordained that there be a structure of local churches in the body of Christ called the Church,” said Piper, who cited John 14:23: “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word.

“To say, ‘I love Jesus, but I don’t submit to His word’ is a lie.”

Planned Parenthood’s Government Sponsored Baby Killing

           “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”      Why-The-GOP-Will-Never-Defund-Planned-Parenthood                                                                                                                                (Edmund Burke)

Let me speak clearly,with precision and without apology. Planned Parenthood is a demonized,government sponsored-baby killing industry! We cannot buy into the compromised lie that what we need is a “conversation”. Absolutely not!

This is an issue of “social justice” and all Christ Followers must continue to raise a loud voice of condemnation toward any and all who promote, support,or defend the institutionalized-demonized-murderous evil of abortion.

 Isaiah 58:1 “Shout out loud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and… their sins.

The Biblical Jesus Vs. The Post Modern Jesus

This graph clearly demonstrates why these Spirit inspired texts are some of the most “ignored-unused-unapplied”  in the modern church! [Click the graph to enlarge]

>> 2 Corinthians 11:4  “You happily put up with whatever anyone tells you…even if they preach a another kind of Jesus or a another kind of Gospel”. 
 
>>Galatians 1:8 “God’s [double] curse on anyone…who preaches a different kind of gospel contrary to the one we preach!”
>>2 Corinthians 11:12-15 Such men change themselves to appear to be ministers of Christ, but they are false ministers,deceitful workers, and servants Satan! This isn’t surprising,even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light!

An Open Letter to “Jesse Leon Rogers”

I would like to use this issue as a teaching moment regarding polemics. I must say ministers who create a  “canon within a canon” and who employ their ill-informed bobo [blink on-blink off] hermeneutic really weary me when attempting to demonstrate superior wisdom.So please note my biting sarcasm is most biblical as learned from the Apostle Paul in his Corinthian Letters.
rgh
After posting  “legal public facts” on my personal antagoniz blog concerning the Courts judgment against Ron Luce and a warrant issued  for 556534_3652379382425_1481352205_nhis arrest, a “Rev” Jesse Leon Rogers responded with allegations concerning my motive and practice for doing so. He then proceeded to call me out for not responding immediately,” Did I hit a little too close to home Richard? You know I described what you did exactly”.
Here are some of his allegations with my response:
 ..”I can tell you, what you are doing is not only unwise but it is also un-biblical. You haven’t researched the situation. You  haven’t talked to the people. And you haven’t prayed for Ron. All you have done is seen something posted and reposted it. Your spirit, attitude nor methodology reflect Christ nor Paul. It falls more in line with a gossip, tail bearer and the accuser.
 Jesse, now that I have a few minutes, “I am your Huckleberry”. No Jesse, that’s not greek! From the movie tombstone, it means “I’m just the man you’re looking for” concerning your  “to weak for the task” challenge.
Now let me take you into the Jesus paradigm-Paul following and adult world of scripture “rev”.
Your charges are these,” I haven’t prayed, haven’t talked to anyone, I did not do any research, merely re-posted someone else’s  post, and for doing so I am a gossiping tale bearer and an accuser.
I now call on you to publicly post every source you discovered in your own research to verify the allegations you’ve made against me.
If you objectively document any of the following, I will publicly repent, write Ron Luce a letter of repentance and ask you to personally forgive me, and will make it public for all to see.
However, If you are unable or unwilling to prove your allegations with verifiable and reputable documentation, you stand guilty of being a hollow core hypocrite of the highest Pharisaical order!
 [Jesus said,”  can you say to your brother, ‘Let me get the speck out of your eye,’ when there is a bigger log in your own eye? You hypocrite (play-actor, pretender), first get the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. Matt 7:5-6]
So here is your chance to show that you are a man of character,honor and integrity. Demonstrate publicly you would never require something of me you  haven’t done yourself.  Man up Dude!
1.Objectively document that I merely reposted!
2.Document how you know I have not prayed for Ron!
3.Document I did not research the subject!
4. Document that the articles from World Magazine and Christianity Today are factually erroneous!
5. Document that a warrant has not been issued!
6.Document that Ron Luce has failed to refund $160,000
6.Document that the Colorado Court did not find him guilty and demand he make payment!
7 Document that I have distorted or misrepresented the legal public facts in any way or in anything I posted.
Secondly, you say what I have done in posting factual news is un-biblical. Let me school you in some biblical theology “rev” as you seem to be guilty of “wanting to be my teacher….even though you do not understand the terms  used  or the subjects about which you make [such] confident declarations. [1 timothy 1:7]
First, your lack of scholarship, biblical theology and bobo hermeneutic places God in contradiction to himself. If factual news is wrong and sinful, God is guilty of the very thing he condemns and forbids. Check out this biblical theology:
>David is publicly reported as being a peeping tom who  pre-meditated murder, was guilty of covetous adultery and resulted in conceiving a bastard child.
>Lot offered his two virgin daughters to be violently gang raped.
>Abraham is counseled by his wife to have  a sexual relationship with one of their servants.
>Paul the Apostle publicly outed a young man in the Corinthian church for living in an incestuous relationship.
>Lots daughters assist him with getting drunk and then commit an incestuous threesome in order to conceive and have children.
>Luke reports publicly that Sapphira and Ananias were lying deceiving covetous hypocrites.
>Paul publicly reported that Hymenaues and Alexander were blasphemers whom he turned over to Satan.
>In 3 John, he publicly reports that Diotrephes is spreading malicious lies and is using abusive discipline on the congregants.
>The first six chapters of First Corinthians are written based solely on information Paul “heard” from others and that he had no personal first hand knowledge of.
 [..it is reported to me by some have  from Chloe’s household and have told me about your quarrels…1 Corinthians 1: 11]
Finally, please note that Paul’s letters were read publicly and then passed around to the other churches to read. This means what he reported was then shared to different churches who had know knowledge of what was happening and Paul wanted it to be made public to all the congregations.
[Colossians 4:16 After this letter has been read to you, see that it is also read in the church of the Laodiceans and that you in turn read the letter from Laodicea]
[1 Thessalonians 5:27 I put you under oath to have this letter read to all the brothers]
 
As you can see “rev”, you do ‘ere not knowing the scriptures! It isn’t against God’s character or the Scriptures to relate to the broader church  documented facts about leaders. Just the opposite, it is in God’s character both by example and admonition for us to do so!
