Testing the Mormon claims: The first vision.

30 12 2008

If you are not aware of it; the LDS church has stated that the truth of their claims rest on one thing; the first vision of Joseph Smith. They draw the line and say that it’s one of two things: the greatest truth ever, or the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on mankind.

Take a look at this series of four videos by Shawn McCraney over at www.bornagainmormon.com and see what you think; does the Mormon claim of the first vision hold water?

From WND: Focus on the Family website yanks Glenn Beck interview

30 12 2008

You may or may not know that Focus on the Family had an interview with T.V. host Glenn Beck on their site. It was pointed out on several websites that there was something very wrong with putting a Mormon on their site, and giving their faith credibility, and insinuating that Mormons are Christians.

When the hoo-ha got really bad, Focus on the Family pulled the interview.

Here is my question: Why in the world would it take some bad press to have Focus on the family recognize that Glenn Beck is not only NOT a Christian, but he is a heretic, and under God’s condemnation at this moment?

They said, in a prepared statement that they pulled the article because they failed to mention his beliefs in the article…HELLO…forget failing to mention his beliefs…Did they take the time to witness to Mr. Beck?

Doesn’t Mr. Beck deserve the truth of his current plight? I think he does. And I think that Focus on the Family was disgraceful in this regard.

It’s a sad day at FOTM when not only can they NOT recognize a false Gospel but that they evidently don’t care about giving Mr. Beck the true gospel.

Sad indeed.

An Honest Statement (from Alpha and Omega Ministries)

An Honest Statement

12/24/2008 – James White

I noticed some of the websites/blogs I read regularly were complaining about this banner that has been hung in Nazareth:

allahhasnosonbanner

I have not the slightest complaint about Muslims hanging this banner. This is Surah 112, Al-Ikhlaas, “the Purity.” It is as close as you can get to a creedal statement in the Qur’an. I have referenced it often on this blog and in my YouTube videos. As such, if I were a Muslim, I would want Christians to know what the Qur’an says about Isa (Jesus), and hanging a sign with that text on it would be just as valid as my hanging a sign outside an Islamic event with a text such as the Carmen Christi (Phil. 2:5-11) or John 1:1 and 18, or something like this.
I would, however, like to point out a few rather obvious things. First, the hanging of the banner once again reminds us of the fundamental nature of Islamic theology: at its core it is defined by its opposition to the central assertions of Christianity. Though Islam has promoted its own mythology about how all the prophets were Muslims and Jesus and the apostles were Muslims, etc., the fact is Islam comes six hundred years after Christianity, and as such, had to fight to define itself as the “newcomer.” Its scriptures give witness to this battle. Notice, for example, Surah 5:116-117:

And behold! Allah will say: “O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah’?” He will say: “Glory to Thee! never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, thou wo uldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest what is in my heart, though I know not what is in Thine. For Thou knowest in full all that is hidden. Never said I to them aught except what Thou didst command me to say, to wit, ‘worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord’; and I was a witness over them whilst I dwelt amongst them; when Thou didst take me up Thou wast the Watcher over them, and Thou art a witness to all things.

The essence of Islam as a denial of Christian belief cannot be ignored. Which leads us to my second observation.
In the large portion of the world’s nations Christians would not be granted the freedom to hang a sign similar to this one. Surely in no Muslim nation would they be allowed to, and in many Western nations today, a riot could quite possibly break out if it happened. Some places in France, or in England, would be very inhospitable places were a Christian to engage in such an act. Yet, if a Muslim chose to show up, say, outside one of our events with a sign bearing Al-Ikhlaas, how would we respond? We’d go witness to him! We would want him to know the Gospel, and we would make sure he realized that the sign he was carrying shows that his prophet contradicted himself! We would proclaim the biblical truth of the relationship of the Father and the Son, and make sure he realized what we really believed. But no true Christian would ever threaten the man, would never wish ill upon the man. We would pray for him and for his salvation.
So at this Christmas season, pray that the Gospel would go forth with great power into the hearts and minds of the Muslim people. Oh Lord of the harvest, save these precious people! Reveal the glory of Christ to them, and bring them to yourself!





Merry UNCOMFORTABLE Christmas!

24 12 2008

Merry Christmas to all brothers and sisters in Christ out there!

Rejoice; unto us a savior is born, Christ Messiah!

For those who are not in Christ this holiday season,  I have another message for you;

Repent of your wicked ways. Turn toward the only hope you have; Jesus Christ!

All the times you’ve lusted after women or men, all of the times you’ve lied, all of the times you’ve used God’s holy name in blasphemy.

All of the times you’ve lived your life, enjoying what God has given you and not giving Him his due thanks and adoration.

All of the times you’ve broken God’s laws, knew it; your conscience bearing witness, but did it anyway in defiance of God…

REPENT!

And believe the Gospel;  believe that God came down and took on human flesh, became a man, fully God and yet fully man,

He lived a perfect sinless life, and was crucified, died, and was buried.

He took the wrath of Almighty God upon Himself, in your place. The wrath that should have come upon you; fell on Him.

God’s justice has been satisfied. You are free.

Free because He rose again, defeating death..

And now God commands you to repent and believe.

The word of God puts it this way:

John 3:18
The one who believes in him is not condemned.  The one who does not believe has been condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.

So I hope these words haunt you throughout the Christmas holiday season. I hope you get no rest for the fear of what is in store for you. I pray that you realize what you’ve done all of your life, and that you have godly sorrow over it, and that you’ll repent and be saved!

So while I wish you a Merry UNCOMFORTABLE Christmas, it’s not out of hatred for you, or a sense that I’m somehow better than you…indeed…I WAS YOU. My prayer is that you repent and believe and that someday we meet in Heaven!
