Exposing the Gospel of Sensationalism: Feeling vs. Knowing

Some people have started embracing worldly and sensationalists terminology. No longer are they saying they know the Lord and they know that the Lord hears their prayers. Rather these people have embraced New Age terms of feeling that Lord does this or that. Some of these people are Christians that are drifting away from that pure and unfained faith in Jesus Christ. Others never were of the body of Christ and claim to be filled with the Holy Ghost but are full of devils.

Instead of knowing that the Lord is present with them, they now claim to merely “feel” his presence. (Notwithstanding, God’s presence can affect our physical bodies. ) This heresy shifts men away from focusing on the spiritual to focusing on their flesh. What’s more is that the word “feel” is only mentioned in the scriptures nine times, but there are numerous references to knowing and understanding the Lord and his commandments.

We must know God’s doctrine and not walk by sight but by faith. We must not fall prey to the gospel of sensationalism and think that whatever we “feel” that is of the Lord is. Rather, our lives should be guided by careful study of the word of God and the Holy Ghost. “For we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV).

Lion and Lamb TV : The Lord Jesus and The Cabalist Pharisees : Online Video | Veoh Video Network

The Jewish religious leaders were not traditional Abrahamic Covenant Jews, even though they certainly gave great lip service to it; rather, the Pharisees of Jesus’ day were members of the secret society now called the Kabbalah. The Kabbalah was and is as occultic and Satanic as any that has ever existed, and for the past 2,000 years, has formed the cornerstone of all seriously Satanic secret societies. A great irony of history is that the exceedingly anti-Semitic Adolf Hitler learned the Kabbalah while training in The Thule Secret Society, and used it to justify his genocidal murder of 6 million Jews! The Pharisees literally were controlled by Satan at the time that Jesus carried out His ministry.

God Formed Man from the Womb

Below are some verses that declare life to exist from conception.

Genesis 25:22-24

[22] And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of the LORD.
[23] And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.
[24] And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.

Genesis 38:27

[27] And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold, twins were in her womb.

Isaiah 44:2,24

[2] Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.

[24] Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;

Psalms 22:8-10

[8] He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
[9] But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts.
[10] I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.

Psalms 71:5-6

[5] For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth.
[6] By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother’s bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.

Psalms 127:3

[3] Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

Psalms 139:11-17

 [11] If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
[12] Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
[13] For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
[14] I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
[15] My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
[16] Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
[17] How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

List of psuedo-Christian cults that teach works-based salvation

It has come to my attention (since I became a Christian in the summer of 1999, that is.) that there are fake Christians who teach works based salvation or teach that it is okay for others to believe in works based salvation.

We are not saved by baptism, communion, confession to a priest, etc. We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:8-9

Some notable occults that teach works based salvation:

Roman Catholicism

Calvinism (John Calvin taught baptismal regeneration. See Infant Baptism—Is It Christian? . Also predestination presents a distorted view of salvation.)

Methodism (John Wesley also taught baptismal regeneration.)

Seventh Day Adventist (While not all adventists believe in works-based salvation, it is the churches official doctrine.)

Lutheranism (Martin Luther was not a Christian. He taught baptismal regeneration, Mary worship, and antinomianism)

Church of Christ (Teaches baptismal regeneration.)

Oneness Pentecostal (Teaches salvation by baptism, good works, and being baptized in the Holy Ghost (which is not a work) )

Worldwide Church of God

United Church of God

Salvation Army (supports and respects Roman Catholicism! http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n1527.cfm )

Romans Chapter 13 by Chuck Baldwin

It seems that every time someone such as myself attempts to encourage our Christian brothers and sisters to resist an unconstitutional or otherwise reprehensible government policy, we hear the retort, “What about Romans Chapter 13? We Christians must submit to government. Any government. Read your Bible, and leave me alone.” Or words to that effect.

No doubt, some who use this argument are sincere. They are only repeating what they have heard their pastor and other religious leaders say. On the other hand, let’s be honest enough to admit that some who use this argument are just plain lazy, apathetic, and indifferent. And Romans 13 is their escape from responsibility. I suspect this is the much larger group, by the way.

Nevertheless, for the benefit of those who are sincere (but obviously misinformed), let’s briefly examine Romans Chapter 13. I quote Romans Chapter 13, verses 1 through 7, from the Authorized King James text:

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. For this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor.”

Do our Christian friends who use these verses to teach that we should not oppose President Bush or any other political leader really believe that civil magistrates have unlimited authority to do anything they want without opposition? I doubt whether they truly believe that.

For example, what if our President decided to resurrect the old monarchal custom of Jus Primae Noctis (Law of First Night)? That was the old medieval custom when the king claimed the right to sleep with a subject’s bride on the first night of their marriage. Would our sincere Christian brethren sheepishly say, “Romans Chapter 13 says we must submit to the government”? I think not. And would any of us respect any man who would submit to such a law?

So, there are limits to authority. A father has authority in his home, but does this give him power to abuse his wife and children? Of course not. An employer has authority on the job, but does this give him power to control the private lives of his employees? No. A pastor has overseer authority in the church, but does this give him power to tell employers in his church how to run their businesses? Of course not. All human authority is limited in nature. No man has unlimited authority over the lives of other men. (Lordship and Sovereignty is the exclusive domain of Jesus Christ.)

Did Christ die only for “his chosen” or for the whole world?

The Orthodox Presbyterian Church claims that

The Son of God took upon himself a human nature in the womb of the virgin Mary, so that in her son Jesus the divine and human natures were united in one person. Jesus Christ lived a sinless life and died on a cross, bearing the sins of, and receiving God’s wrath for, all those who trust in him for salvation (his chosen ones). He rose from the dead and ascended into heaven, where he sits as Lord and rules over his kingdom (the church). He will return to judge the living and the dead, bringing his people (with glorious, resurrected bodies) into eternal life, and consigning the wicked to eternal punishment.

However the scripture states,

1 John 2:1-2

[1] My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
[2] And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

Orthodox Presbyterian’s False Gospel of Infant Baptism

In an article titled Refusing to Present Children for Baptism, the Orthodox Presbyterian states:

  1. God has revealed his great displeasure with those who refuse or neglect the administration of the sign of the covenant (Gen. 17:14; Exod. 4:24-26).
  2. To refuse the covenant sign to the children of believers is to deny God’s covenant claim upon them, and thus to withhold from him those who are rightfully his. Such denial provokes him to anger (Exod. 4:22-26; Mark 10:13, 14).
  3. The riches of God’s grace are most clearly seen in his covenant mercies, and to deny baptism to the children of the church prevents the grace of God from being seen in all its richness and manifestly detracts from its fullness. This cannot help but weaken the sense of gratitude in both parents and children and consequently rob God of the praise and thanksgiving that are due to him.
  4. Those professing parents who refuse to present their children for baptism thereby deny their solemn obligation to keep God’s covenant by raising their children in the knowledge and fear of the Lord, and deprive their children as well as themselves of the comfort of God’s covenant promise.
  5. Professing parents who refuse to present their children for baptism withhold from the church of Christ the holy seed which God in his goodness has provided for it, and consequently deprive their children of the nurture and discipline which the body of Christ imparts to its members.

They say that if parents refuse to baptize their children “God’s covenant claim” upon the children is denied. This is clearly a false gospel. The scriptures do not teach Christian initiation. You cannot be baptized into the kingdom of God. You must believe in Christ.
