The Truth vs. ‘Traditionalism’ In the Calvinist Baptist and Presbyterian Church (Universal Church)

In reply to the Baptist traditionalist at of the Southern Baptist Convention, who spoke against the doctrine of predestiny (or just “destiny”) a.k.a. Calvinism and speaking as if its teachers/believers of such are being unfair by not promoting anti-Calvinism (yes, that absurd) at the blog post https://soteriology101.com/2015/06/22/calvinism-in-the-southern-baptist-convention/

 

What do you mean by “doctrinal bias”? You’re obviously not saved. It isn’t their BIAS, IT’S WHAT THEY BELIEVE IS WHO GOD IS AND HOW SALVATION CAN ONLY WORK. It’s not a preference of opinion or a sway or an illogical view like YOUR BIAS.

Truth is not about giving equal time to any belief, to conservatism and liberalism or whatever, it’s about WHAT, IS, THE, TRUTH. HOW, DOES, A PERSON, GET, SAVED FROM AN ETERNITY IN HELL. NOT, “Oh you’re hurting my feelings by only saying what you believe the truth way and life is”. Huh? Christ didn’t say to preach opinions and diverging views on salvation. You’re crazed and sinful. Scripture says there will be blemishes among the church, ugly spots, sure that can mean certain leaders and teachers, but if you admit THE MAJORITY of the true church, which comprises Calvinist Baptists and Presbyterians preaches 95 percent that GOD’S WILL IS ALWAYS DONE, and you claim without evidence that “many” Southern Baptists “embrace” (how about BELIEVE, CAN YOU SAY BELIEVE?), obviously your way of hyping a minority view, then WHO COULD THE BLEMISHES, the ONES CAUSING DISHARMONY, DISCORD, DIVISIONS BE? It’s those denying the majority belief. And wow, lol, “traditionalism” eh? Are you Catholic? Are you a Pharisee? Tradition vs God’s word eh? Truth is certainly a tradition, but calling some view a pretentious name just as atheists will call themselves “Freethinkers” or the “rational” ones doesn’t change the fact that they are illogical slaves. The fact is: salvation is promised by God to those who cannot earn it and never would based on HIS CHOICE, HIS WILL, HIS PLANS, HIS SON’S SACRIFICE, HIS BLOOD AND SUFFERING AND DEATH AND RESURRECTION, not our whims and corrupt feelings and will, on our unreliable inconsistent choices. You want the gospel to be, “Congrats, you have a choice, free will, are allowed to be complete king over your own life, oh and Christ died some sort of death they say to make that happen, now if you pick my view you’ll have some neat friends and we can watch sports, drink and smoke together and sing Grateful Dead songs and classic rock and think about all kinds of worldly things rather than those booooooring Bible songs and studying doctrines all day on bleah, “destiny” and “God’s will”, how boring that kind of Creator and Savior are! Oh yeah so on the gospel, so you can lose your salvation if you feel like because God is a respecter of persons, knows your will is equal to His, and that true Father’s who love their sons and daughters and the angels eternally wouldn’t torment them with his horribly boring (oh how I fear the possibility God is an eternal bore!) so called “love” but let you dig into that cool place, do-what-you-feel-like land of the free called Hell where you can never get out of, but just ignore that contradiction, wait, I shouldn’t have mentioned that because I should stay true to being intellectually dishonest. Man but my teaching is so much easier to accept than that maddening destiny stuff where God faults us for every little thing even though He says He’s controlling every single thing! So yeah, the good news is you can go to Heaven if you accept Christ as Lord, Lord, Lord and savior and go to Heaven or Hell if you feel like it and get born again a few times in a row in case you backslid and lost your salvation by accident. So, yeah, you might go to Hell, you might not get saved, yeah, good news, uh, yeah, so uplifting and something to shout on the rooftops and get persecuted, tortured and brutally murdered over and have your family including kids and pets destroyed over. Hey now lets have some worldly fun to cheer ourselves up with after that little talk.”

Wow, so you want that crazy gospel, that crazy life to be the optional “traditional” way offered and taught to Christ’s children, to His sheep? Save that for the goats and go join the liberals and libertines. Go to Four Square and Pentecostal crazed churches where you can go crazy all you want babbling such incomprehensible babble all day and not need a translator or proof it’s of God.

And NO, God doesn’t simply, “control all things” and “your will”, the Bible says He accomplishes his will, plan through indirect ways including direct, but He doesn’t hypnotize anyone. He absolutely uses force, but salvation isn’t “forcing a sinner to love God or face the facts begrudgingly”. That’s how your kind thinks because God has kept you blind and your heart hardened and mind unrepentant so that you don’t have God’s love in you. To you it’s an inconvenience and annoyance, a cruel “fact” of life you hope to eternally ignore so you can promote your own so called “truth” and “love” and “reasoning”. But you hate all three true versions of each so much so you simply refer to some “many”, to three Christians, avoid SCRIPTURE and true reasoning, and an appeal to tradition, like a cultic Catholic or Pharisee or Ultra Orthodox Judiaiser. People like you are the true Pharisees who make up or pander to the countless rules of men but despise the core laws of God, to love Him with all your being and to love your neighbor as yourself and do to others as you’d have done to you. Like it or not God already chose who he’d save and had nothing to do with some kernel of goodness or foreseeing they’d choose to love him, will force every rebellious knee to bow, and He will force the goats out and throw them in Hell and keep his own children pure and in ecstasy forever. If you want Hell as an eternal choice, you’ll get more than that, that will be all you have, Hell and nothing else, as Christ said, whatever you have will be taken away and even what’s left over will be gone. You’ll have less than nothing in Hell forever. So if you don’t want that, then take God’s threat fully seriously for once and truly repent if you can and stop obsessing on having to give up sinful friends, thinking and living.

”Get a real job!” writes bankster to Californian waitress Breanna

Get a real job! The note with 1 per cent tip left by wealthy banker
after $133 lunch as an insult to the 99 percent
By Beth Stebner
Feb/26//2012/5:12

An arrogant banker has done all in his power to enforce his position as the ‘one per cent,’ all the while reminding everyone else they’re not.

After dining on a meal at a boutique Newport Beach, California restaurant, the banker left only $1.33 on a $133.54 tab.

Adding insult to injury, he gave the server, Breanna, another tip: ‘Get a real job.’ – More here

And Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly, I say to you, only with difficulty will a rich person enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.” When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?” But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” – Matthew 19:23-26

“Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him? But you have dishonored the poor man. Are not the rich the ones who oppress you, and the ones who drag you into court? Are they not the ones who blaspheme the honorable name by which you were called? If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well. But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors.” – James 2:5-9

And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said:
Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied.
Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.
Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you and
revile you and spurn your name as evil on account of the Son of Man!
Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold,
your reward is great in heaven; for so their fathers did to the prophets.
But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation.
Woe to you who are full now, for you shall be hungry.
Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep.
Woe to you, when all people speak well of you,
for so their fathers did to the false prophets.
But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies,
do good to those who hate you,
bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.
To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also,
and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either.
Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods
do not demand them back.
And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.
If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you?
For even sinners love those who love them.
And if you do good to those who do good to you,
what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.
And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive,
what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to
sinners to get back the same amount.
But love your enemies, and do good, and lend,
expecting nothing in return,
and your reward will be great,
and you will be sons of the Most High,
for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil.
– Luke 6:20-35

Study: Children of Unmarried Parents Worse Off Claim Researchers

August 17, 2011 Leave a comment

From NPR
8/16/2011

As more and more U.S. couples decide to have children without first getting married, a group of 18 family scholars is sounding an alarm about the impact this may have on those children.

In a new report out on Tuesday, they say research shows the children of cohabiting parents are at risk for a broad range of problems, from trouble in school to psychological stress, physical abuse and poverty.

The study is put out by the National Marriage Project and the Institute for American Values, groups whose missions include strengthening marriage and family life. It suggests a shift in focus is needed away from the children of divorce, which has long been a preoccupying concern for such scholars.

Brad Wilcox, a report co-author and head of the National Marriage Project, says divorce rates have steadily dropped since their peak in 1979-80, while rates of out-of-wedlock childbearing have soared. Forty-one percent of all births are now to unwed mothers, many of them living with — but not married to — the child’s father. – Continued here with audio

So once again, the Bible is proved true, including where it commands rapists to marry a virgin they rape. Can you figure out why now? And for you who say, “AWWW OOOOOH OH MY GOD WHAT ABOUT THE WOMAN’S RIGHTS!?” You’re forgetting the study just mentioned, forgetting that such a law would be to the benefit of the child, especially in the culture of the world at that time (especially if the rapist learned his lesson by not running away, or just paying some small fine or some other inadequate compensation or God letting him be free to decide, “I’ll just kill her or the baby to get away with what I did.” During those times (and still among many Orthodox Jews and many millions of Muslims), women were discriminated against if they were thought to be adulterous and that the Israelites were in a barren desert, and were going to wander there for 40 years. And how many men today would want to marry a woman with a child not there own or from a racist? So it’s in favor of the woman. And as for “rights”, what “rights”? The concept of human rights developed from ancient Greek Sophists (ever heard of “sophistry”?) who claimed that all humans were equal, which is a false statement. Physically, they are not equal: women are at a disadvantage because of their strength and are not as aggressive as men in general, and in my opinion, it’s apparent that they are not as innovative, at least not in the same way men are. The lesser innovation ability is due to the way God programs female minds and how he programmed their DNA in my opinion, or God programmed them in general to me innovative at other things, like weaving, cleaning and visual design. For those who argue, “So God lets you rape virgins and you don’t have to pay for it?” I’d say you didn’t study the link or listen to the law if you read it and didn’t read or forgot the points I just made: Deuteronomy says he must be fined and stay with her for life as her husband. And how many times do you think anyone can get away with rape if they keep having to pay fines? The law also suggests that the rape victim has the full right to accuse the one who raped her of having raped her without penalty, unlike in the Quran, or Muslim law, or Muslim tradition, in which it’s a heavy and dangerous burden for a woman to accuse anyone of anything. And God, as Bible-haters know, who’ve bothered to study the Bible in general well, records every evil (and good) act a person does, and if a person isn’t forgiven of their sins – if Jesus hasn’t suffered and died for their past and future sins – they will pay the penalty of eternal pain, limited movement and limited company, forever, for every rape they committed, besides all their other sins.

Some idiotic and simpleton replies to the article I found, no doubt from liberals, were:

“No preconceived notions or bias, I’m sure.”

I thought someone would say that. So then is a homosexual automatically biased if he or she says, “Homosexuality is good” or finds that gay marriage is good or when they say that gay marriage is equal to straight marriage, or when a father of a raped 13 year old demands she kill the baby “so you can feel better”? Is it biased when a mainstream scientist, liberals who trust in them or atheists make claims in favor of the Big Bang, abiogenesis, Darwinian evolution, or anything in such a way that it says or implies that the Bible is false, that creationism is false, that intelligent design is false or that Christians are wrong for believing whatever Christ says, or anything at all, or that he even existed? It’s as dumb as saying that if a Counsel on Single Life did the study and found marriage was less beneficial than being single that they were biased too. The idiot is just speculating and it’s poor speculation since he’s merely judging by the name of the group that did the study.

Another liberal poop reply was, “I’m sure More proof that gay marriage would be beneficial to the same sex parented families.”

That’s as stupid as saying that if someone found “eating salmon raw is beneficial” that therefore eating Puffer fish/fugu raw was good too”. The moron liberal took the research out of context. It was on straight couples, not gay. And why did he capitalize “more”? Weird.

To Jessie: On Judgment

September 4, 2009 Leave a comment

Part of judging is deciding; it’s required for determining what you are sensing. Even the word “determine” is a synonym for decide too, which starts to show how judging is required for living a peaceful and useful life. At least judgment is required for thoughts beyond simply sensing something and wondering it is what you are sensing. In other words if you see a ball, but don’t recognize it, you may feel curiosity as to what the ball is, but unless you start making judgments or a judgment (determining), you’ll just wonder what the ball is till you lose interest in it.

So, you’re actually judging all the time as is obvious from knowing humans, since humans are always trying to figure out things, but sadly, usually not wanting to figure out what is truly good or evil, because deep inside, they hate the truth, because it condemns them, figuratively speaking, it judges them, and people are addicted to doing wrong, to living life their way in spite of knowing they are doing wrong.

What you seem to at least partly mean by saying that you don’t judge is that you don’t condemn anyone for their moral beliefs, but that’s wrong since people who say they don’t condemn people who DO condemn others who DO condemn others for what they believe to be wrong moral beliefs. And think about that, isn’t that a massive irony since you’re then indirectly saying, “You may not tell anyone when they are doing moral wrong even if you believe you are supposed to or if that’s part of your religion, if you do, then I condemn you your morality or religion.” So you do condemn / “judge”, and more ironically, you condemn most of the world and yourself without realizing it since everyone, including you as I just pointed out, condemn what they believe to be moral wrong. And what you believe to be morally wrong, is what you say is wrong! I’m not yelling by putting the exclamation mark, just pointing out more clearly the irony.

So what you should say, so that there is no confusion, which leads to strife, is, “I condemn those who condemn what they believe to be morally wrong.” And again, that would mean, you condemn yourself, whether you realize it or not.

Another thing which you know, at least to a vague degree, is that being condemned is humiliating, it hurts your feelings, and I also know that people who say they don’t condemn / “judge”, say that because they have been deeply hurt from being directly or indirectly condemned, and seeing that their friends don’t like to be condemned either, or hoping to make friends or more friends or to keep the ones you have, you warn them that you do not like to be morally judged, and will “love” them back in the same way (so long as they don’t condemn you.) But as you’ve probably realized by now, if you’ve read up to this point and understood me, such a life style leads to co called “chaos” and confusion (and ironically, given enough time and socializing with people: to more condemnation when arguments break out, and sometimes arguments over the impossible philosophy of “never condemn” itself.)

I’ve said all this to you out of kindness and love, not at all to hurt your feelings, and if it hurts your feelings well you’re rejecting my kindness then, and would be condemning me for not good reason. I say that not because I’m assuming that you’re easily offended, but in case you are.

So, I hope you embrace judging soon without feeling even a hint of guilt when others try and make you feeling guilty for it.

Judging is necessary for learning the truth, and you have the right to learn the truth. Only God has the right to keep you from knowing it, but till the day he commands you to not learn or remember it, it’s your right. I hope you don’t condemn me for these beliefs, or show your condemnation by ignoring me.

I hope my love never leaves you.
