8.12: The Truth about Worshiping Mary, Revealing Catholic Lies
Yesterday,  I wrote the Truth about Mary, the Mother of Jesus — outlining Mary’s  history from the prediction of the virgin birth of Jesus to the  annunciation; later, the last mentions of Mary and Jesus’ brothers and  sisters in the Gospels, Acts and Paul’s letters. The question now  lies on how did we get from the Mother of Jesus to the Mother of God and  her being lifted higher than the saints and worshiped alongside, if not  above Jesus. Lies, false doctrines, is what all this is..... Keep reading in my blog where there are links to dig deeper.... If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then… Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.  Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly… “Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. I surrender my whole life to you and I will follow you for the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. In Jesus' name, Amen.” Jesus Christ is coming back soon! Are you ready?

8.11: What is the Truth about Mary, the Mother of Jesus?
Growing up Catholic, there were pictures of the  Virgin Mary everywhere. I had bookmarks, and there were statues and  pictures. We even had a fake “Pieta” — the classic Michelangelo  sculpture of Mary holding the body of Jesus. Mom later made a grotto in  her yard in Puerto Rico for a statue of Mary. Before I get into everything that’s wrong with how the Catholic  Church venerates or worships Mary, I want to present the biblical truth  about her.... Click on over to my blog for a couple of other related podcasts...  If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then… Believe. Repent.

8.10: The Truth about Replacement Theology and Antisemitism
Today I’m tackling two touchy subjects:  Replacement Theology and Antisemitism. Why? Because they are tied  together and unfortunately, tied to the Catholic Church. This is what  happens when you start digging, you never know what you’ll uncover  whether good or bad. Here it seems to be all bad. A few years ago when I owned my own house, I was into watching many  of the home improvement shows. I enjoyed watching the house flippers.  They’d take an old house, tear it down and build it up again to  hopefully sell it at a profit. What was interesting was seeing the  contractor show the owner after they’ve torn down a wall, that something  needed to be totally replaced — usually the plumbing or electrical, but sometimes it was the foundation. You can easily replace walls, flooring, paint even electrical and  plumbing, but if the foundation is rotten or cracked, it’s no good. The  whole house could crumble. Think about that as you read, listen to and  or watch the material I’ve covered here. And, of course, we always come back to the Bible — which should be everyone’s solid foundation. Go on over to my blog to watch the videos and keep reading.... If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then… Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.  Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly… “Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me.

8.9: The Truth about Papal Authority and Infallibility
False teachings go all the way back to the first century. We were warned  by Jesus, Paul, Peter and other Apostles to trust the Holy Spirit for  the truth — discernment. In my quest to uncover where the Catholic  Church started going wrong — away from the Gospel of Jesus Christ — I  had no idea, I’d uncover so much blasphemy and heresy. The Roman  Catholic Church claims to have total authority over Catholic  parishioners and the world. Therefore taking the word “catholic” to its  meaning — “universal”. The “Councils” are infallible and have equal  authority as the Bible. The Bible is “extra” — basically, non-essential.  The Pope, known as the “Vicar of Christ”, claims supreme authority over  the church and all Christians all over the world. He also claims that  everything he says is “infallible”. Where and how did this supreme papal  authority and infallibility start? Certainly, not in the Bible… Keep reading my blog.... there are links to dig deeper into the Bible Truth...

8.8: Truth: The Great Catholic Scam - Indulgences - Money for Grace
One of the main points of conflict that Martin Luther had with the Catholic Church in 1517 was the sale of indulgences — basically money for grace. In other words, people supposedly could buy their way out of purgatory. They could purchase an indulgence for themselves or a loved one, living or dead. Yesterday, I wrote about penance being one of the 7 Sacraments that a Catholic believer has to go through to be allowed into heaven.  However, it never did guarantee a passage into heaven — just shorten  their sentence or time spent in purgatory — yet no one ever knew how  long it was. The goal of this series of articles and podcasts is to uncover where  these Catholic doctrines, traditions, rites and rituals first started.  I’m digging to reveal that they were inventions, ideas and creations by  human leaders and completely and totally unbiblical. That is, not found  anywhere in the Bible. Keep reading in my blog..... you've got to watch the video of these former Catholic nuns and priests and why the left Catholicism after discovering the truth....

8.7: Truth: How to Get to Heaven: Not with Catholic Sacraments
Heaven — that’s where we all want to end up, right? Well, most of us  anyway. Those of us that do believe there is a God and that’s where He  resides. How we get there is the debate of all the religions of the  world. Growing up Catholic,  as a kid, I was taught from the Catechism book. I did find mine at my  mom’s house a few years ago, but I seem to have misplaced it. My only  use for it was highlighting all the lies that it taught. According to  the Catholic Church, you have 7 Sacraments that can  help you get into heaven. I’ve already covered some of them, so those  will have links to their respective articles. At the bottom of my blog, I’ve  embedded 2 videos that go deeper in to the subject as well as a past podcast on the lies of the Catholic church...... If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then… Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.  Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly… “Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior.

8.6: The Truth about Catholic Magic with the Body and Blood of Jesus
Would you like to know where the phrase "hocus pocus" came  from? It sounds Latin. Well, it is derived from a Latin phrase, but  you'll be shocked when you hear/read the truth. Holy Communion or the  celebration of the Eucharist, is celebrated weekly (sometimes daily) by  most Christian churches. Growing up Catholic, we went to Mass once a  week on Sundays or on a rare occasion we went on Saturday night. After I  made my first communion, I could partake. I had to go to confession the day before so I was eligible to take communion.... Keep reading in my blog as I reveal where the Roman Catholic Church went wrong regarding Holy Communion...

8.5: The Truth About Peter: He was Never the Head of the Church
Continuing the series: Where the Roman Catholic Church Went Wrong: Tracking where church leaders strayed from the Gospel Truth Today answer the question, "Was Peter the Pope?" Peter first heard about Jesus from his brother Andrew, who heard about  Him from John the Baptist. Even so, it wasn’t until Jesus performed a  miracle involving fish that caught Peter's attention and urged Him to  respond.... Continue in my blog where there is a video, "Was Peter the Pope?" I'm no Bible Scholar, however, I did find one that explains why Peter IS  NOT the first Pope and why Peter, himself, would not want to be thought  as the head of the church. It's done in the fashion of an interview  using Peter's own words from the Book of Acts, the Gospels and his  letters..... There's also a video on the the journey of the Apostles after the Book of Acts. They're both relatively short. Must watch....

Continuing my series on “Where the Roman Catholic Church Went Wrong:  Tracking Where Church Leaders Strayed from the Gospel Truth”, brings me  to confession. I remember as a kid going every Saturday with my mom (dad  only went to church for a wedding or funeral) to confession. We did  this so that we could receive Communion in Mass on Sunday. It was a  weekly ritual. Problem was, that I was a pretty good kid. What happens  when you have no sins to confess? .... Keep reading in my blog... there are links to relevant Bible verses...

8.3: The Truth About Purgatory: The Biggest Deception of the Catholic Church
If purgatory exists, then Jesus suffered, sacrificed His life and died  for nothing. The truth is that purgatory does not exist! It is an  invention of the Roman Catholic Church and it has been exploited for  centuries. I remember when my dad passed away in 1993 and I went to Puerto Rico  to be with my mom. We went to visit his older half-sister and she said  to us, “I’m praying for him every day.” Mom appreciated it. I didn’t  know what to say. Mom regularly paid the Catholic Church to “say a Mass”  for my father. Now, at the time, I was attending a Progressive church. I still wasn’t born-again,  but that sounded weird. I didn’t get it. It was years since I had been  in a Catholic Church and I had forgotten all about purgatory. Apparently  my mom and aunt believed my dad was there and that prayers and masses  would shorten his sentence. (Those are called “indulgences” and I’ll get  into more details on them in a later post.) However, no one knew how  long the sentence was. And that’s just it. No one does know how long  their sentence in purgatory is. Because it doesn’t exist! What is Purgatory?

8.2: Proven Truth: How Paganism and Idolatry Started in the Church
As I continue tracking where church leaders strayed from the Gospel  Truth or God's Word, we have to look at the Roman Catholic Church in two  lights: Pre-Reformation and Post-Reformation. I started with Infant Baptism because that didn't seem to have a specific start date. But, it stemmed  back to even pre-Constantine times. When Roman Emperor Constantine came  on the scene, that's where we find an unholy blending of pagan rituals and traditions....  Keep reading in my blog where I have 2 videos another podcast and links to more resources so you can do deeper....

8.1: Proven Truth: Baby Baptism Absolutely Does Not Equal Salvation!
I was baptized in the Roman Catholic Church when I was 6 months old. When I was in my 30s and decided I wanted to go back to church,  the first church I was taken to in Miami was a huge Baptist church. I  went to the singles ministry Sunday school and they kept asking me,  “When was I baptized?” I said, “As a baby.” “You need to be baptized again.” They would reply quickly. However, none of them could explain to me WHY I needed to be baptized again. I explain how God finally lead me to an explanation I could wrap my brain around here. Where the Roman Catholic Church Went Wrong: Tracking where church leaders strayed from the Gospel Truth This is the first of several — I have no idea how many — blog posts  and podcasts on “Where the Roman Catholic Church Went Wrong”. I’ll be  tracking where church leaders strayed from the Gospel Truth — going back  as far as I can find sources and proof. Where did Baptizing Babies Start? ....

7.31: Paul’s Amazing Advice to Timothy is Absolutely Relevant Now!
Paul’s 2 letters to his apprentice, Timothy, are  quite appropriate as a bridge to my next series. In these letters —  which some believe were the last letters Paul ever wrote — he gives  valuable advice, speaks the Gospel Truth and warns Timothy of all the  unholy times to come. What is amazing is that what Paul was warning  Timothy back then — c. 67-69 AD, probably while he was in prison — is  happening right now and has been happening throughout church history.  I’m not going to go through the 2 letters totally here — it would be too  long. I do urge you to read them and study them for yourself.

7.30: Pay Attention! Listen to the Watchmen on the Wall!
The city of Old San Juan in Puerto Rico is heavily fortified. Its “El Morro” Fortress dates back to 1650 when the Spanish government ordered the city to be surrounded.  The picture above is of one of its “garritas” or sentry towers where  guards were posted 24/7. Their job was to warn the fortress officers if  they saw any enemy ships approaching. I imagine they would then rally  the troops and be ready for the attack. Now, imagine if the sentry warned an officer, but the officer did  nothing and the fortress was attacked and men were killed. Whose at  fault? The officer, right? The sentry did his job. Such is the job of  the Watchman on the Wall. Back in the Old Testament days, most cities were walled cities — not  unlike Old San Juan. Watchmen were stationed on the wall and their job  was to watch out for approaching enemies and to warn the leaders and the  people that an attack would be imminent. We have this in Ezekiel  chapter 33.... Keep reading in my blog and you'll see the picture of the sentry box in "El Morro" fortress and I have a special song at the end of the blog....

7.27: Beware of the Devil's Evil Plan: A Global Rebellion Against God
Ever since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, Satan has been in a battle with God for mankind. Shortly after the scene in the garden, Cain committed the first murder. Here we we had anger, envy, jealousy and greed. In Genesis 6 God stated… 5 The Lord observed the  extent of human wickedness on the earth, and he saw that everything  they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil. 6 So the Lord was sorry he had ever made them and put them on the earth. It broke his heart. 7 And  the Lord said, “I will wipe this human race I have created from the  face of the earth. Yes, and I will destroy every living thing—all the  people, the large animals, the small animals that scurry along the  ground, and even the birds of the sky. I am sorry I ever made them.” 8 But Noah found favor with the Lord. Genesis 6:5-8 NLT So he flooded the earth and wiped everything out except for Noah and his family and the animals in the ark. (Genesis 6-10). The Tower of Babel Right after that, the people thought themselves godlike… Keep reading in my blog where I embedded a hand-picked video on how our current world is battling spiritual warfare...

7.26: How to Combat the Strategies of the Devil with the Armor of God
When I first started studying the Bible, I used to get Galatians and Ephesians mixed up. Where’s the “Fruit of the Spirit”? That’s Galatians 5.  Where’s the “Armor of God”? That’s Ephesians 6. And that’s where we are  today. I’m going to defer the beginning of Ephesians 6 to Pastor Kris  Langham in the free Bible app – ThroughTheWord.org. I’m skipping over the parenting and business tips and going right to the Armor of God. That’s what we need right now  because what’s happening in the world today, is all the strategies of  the devil. Moreover, if you consider yourself a Christian, then you need  to put on the Armor of God daily! Paul writes… Keep reading in my blog...

7.25: If God is Our Father, How in the World do We Act Like His Kid?
In Ephesians chapter 5, the Apostle Paul continues his sermon on what it looks like to live as a Child of God. When we are born again, we are made new. It's up to us, with the help of God's Word -- the Bible -- and the Holy Spirit -- to imitate God. That's sanctification and it's not easy. That's why Paul wrote all his letters. He heard that all the churches he started all over Europe were having issues trying to walk the walk. They were influenced many false teachers sent by Satan to distract and divert them from the truth and from walking in the light. John wrote in one of his letters of encouragement... But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:7 NLT Ephesians 5...

If you truly want to be born again and have the assurance of salvation, receive the Holy Spirit, and get a 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven and that you won’t be left behind at the Rapture, this is what you have to do… Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.  Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly… “Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior.

7.24: Are you Grounded in Your Faith?
The more you read the Bible, the more grounded you become in your faith.  In the 4th chapter of Ephesians, the Apostle Paul tells us how to "walk  the walk". It's one thing calling yourself or professing to be  Christian. Another thing is proving it by your actions and behaviors --  or your "walk". The whole idea of becoming a Christian is leaving your  old, sinful life behind and being reborn into a new life through Jesus  Christ. Here, Paul tells us just how to do that. Let's dig in...

7.23: How Wide, Long, High and Deep is the Love of Jesus!
One of my favorite statues of Jesus is Christ  the Redeemer in Rio de Janero, Brazil. I’ve always wanted to go there,  but alas, I’ll have to enjoy it online for now. The statue shows Jesus  with His arms stretched out, but He’s not on the cross. It reminds me of  a couple of Bible passages. One is from the Psalms which is a prophetic  one considering it’s in the Psalms talking about Jesus’ redemption of  our sins… Psalm 103:12 NLTAs far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us When you think about a globe, if you travel north, eventually, you’ll  reach the North Pole and then be heading south. However, when you  travel east, you’ll always be traveling east. East and west will never  meet. That’s how far away Jesus removed our sins from us. They’re gone!  Never to come back! Done! Another scripture that reminds me of that statue as well as the ocean, is in… Ephesians Chapter 3.... Keep reading in my blog where I have a picture of the statue and the ocean....

7.22: Saved by Amazing Grace: Outside of Jesus We Are Dead
We need Jesus, because we need LIFE! God gave us life and the devil  wants to take it away. Satan is clever. He’s the wolf dressed up in  sheep’s clothing. He doesn’t look like the devil. He’s either very  charismatic or could even be sweet and gentle like a “wise man” or  priest. Lost sheep can easily be led astray. Coming from both a Catholic  and a Progressive background, I fell for the deception. I was told that  all I needed to do was be a good kid, go to church, treat everyone nice  and I’d have my ticket to heaven. How lost I was! I’m so glad that God  kept pursuing me! I kept resisting, but He didn’t let go. He didn’t give  up. ... Keep reading in my blog.... my testimony is at the bottom along with a hand-picked music video just for you!...

This next phrase in the Apostles’ or Nicene Creed is where churches  differ in doctrine. Who’s right? Here’s where you need to go to the  Gospel and seek the truth for yourself. Don’t rely on the teachings of  one church. We were warned by Jesus, Paul, John, Jude and Peter many  times to beware of false teachers. Most of the time they come across as  very believable, but they are really doing Satan’s work of deception.  Our next series will be the Book of Ephesians where we’ll touch on  spiritual warfare.

7.16: Jesus' Return to the World in Glory: Focus on the Apostles’ Creed Part 4
Continuing in our deconstruction of the  Apostles’ or Nicene Creed, today we come to the resurrection, which is a  key belief in Christianity. If Jesus wasn’t resurrected, then we’ve got no hope. In 1 Corinthians 15 — which is also referred to as a creed for Christian believers — the Apostle Paul tells us… 12 But if it is  preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you  say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. 15 More  than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we  have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did  not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. 17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. 1 Corinthians 15:12-17 NIV The Apostles’ Creed cont… He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

What you profess to believe in is an important part of your life. Yesterday, I spoke about the history of the creed that many Christian churches,  spanning denominations, hold as their true beliefs. Growing up  Catholic, I rattled off the Apostles’ Creed by memory. However, it  wasn’t until I started reading the Bible daily that what I was professing in that creed was way bigger than just mere words. If you truly believe what you are reciting, then you SHOULD hold a  Biblical Worldview. Everything you do should center around the beliefs  you are affirming.

7.11: You are not Free if You are a Slave to Religion
In listening to ThroughTheWord’s lesson on Galatians chapter 6, Pastor Kris Langham said something very interesting. The word “religion”  actually means re-bind-up. Think of the word “ligature”, which means “a  thing used for tying or binding something tightly.” Now, that was an  eye-opening revelation! I remember as a kid growing up Catholic, I was more worried about  breaking a rule rather than why I was in church in the first place — to  learn about Jesus. Jesus told us when he quoted the prophet Isaiah in Luke 4… Luke 4:18-19, 2118 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,     for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released,     that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, 19     and that the time of the Lord’s favor has come.”… …“The Scripture you’ve just heard has been fulfilled this very day!” Captives? What captives? The Jews who were bound by the law. Freedom from the Law As we finish with the last chapter of Paul’s letter to the church in  Galatia, let’s review a couple of key points.

We continue our walk through Paul’s letter to the Galatians.

That you’re not just  saved by grace and faith — which is the true Gospel. The book of Galatians can be divided into 3 parts… 1 and 2 – Paul defends the Gospel of Grace 3 and 4 – The Gospel of Grace is Explained by Paul 5 and 6 – Paul shows us how to apply the Gospel of Grace in our lives Galatians Chapter 2 In Chapter 2, Paul continues his story of how he goes to Jerusalem and confronts Peter… If you truly want to be born again and have the assurance of salvation and a 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven and that you won’t be left behind at the Rapture, this is what you have to do… Believe.

7.6: Pretending to be the Good News When it's Not
I have a love-hate relationship with social  media. I need to use it for my business and to help spread the Gospel of  Jesus Christ, however, it’s full of FAKE NEWS! Moreover, it’s really  hard to distinguish what’s true and what’s fake! You have to go to  resources like Snopes or Just Facts to verify if it’s true or not. Likewise it is with the Good News of Jesus Christ or the Gospel. How do you know that the church you’re attending is preaching the true Gospel? You read the Bible! You  have 27 books in the New Testament that reveal, preach, explain and  prophesy the Good News of the true salvation of Jesus Christ. [Related: Who Wrote the Gospels?]  The problem is, some churches don’t encourage you to read the Bible for  yourself. At least the Roman Catholic Church I grew up in didn’t. My  parents didn’t either. They didn’t know better. They, too, were raised  Catholic. The Apostle Paul’s Letter to the Galatians Scholars say that that letter to the “churches of Galatia” may have  been the first epistle that Paul wrote. Probably because he explains in  the first chapter where he got his knowledge of the Gospel of Christ.  Why is he an authority? He’s the “Johnny-come-lately” of the apostles.  He encountered Jesus after the resurrection. He was one of the Pharisees  who’s stood by and watched Stephen get stoned to death (Acts 7).

7.5: Sanctification: Striving to be Holy Like God is Holy
We humans can never be perfect. Only Jesus is  perfect. So, even after we repent of our sins — that is, stop sinning —  how do we stay repented? It’s not easy. Satan’s whole purpose in  existing is to tempt us and prevent us from staying repented. Satan will try distracting us so  we don’t read the Bible every day. He’ll say to us, “Oh, you’re too  tired to go to church on Sunday!” on Saturday night. And it gets way  worse. Jesus said… The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. John 10:10 NLT The thief is Satan. Then Peter tells us… 15 But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. 1 Peter 1:15 NLT Huh? How are we supposed to do that? Keep reading in my blog.... If you truly want to be born again and have the assurance of salvation and a 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven and that you won’t be left behind at the Rapture, this is what you have to do… Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.  Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly… “Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me.

7.4: The Day of the Lord is Coming: Are You Ready?
We’re halfway through 2020 and the scary thing is — it’s not over yet!  We still have 6 more months to go. The presidential election is about 3  months away and the battle is just getting hot. In Arizona, we’re back  in lock-down, shutdown, and stay-at-home mode as more and more cases of  COVID-19 are diagnosed. And now I read that there’s a mutant strain of the coronavirus that will spread faster and will be more contagious. Yikes! Arizona’s rainy monsoon season was supposed to have started on June 15. According  to AZ Family News, the last time we had “measurable rainfall” at the  Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport was April 11, with .08″.  Every day we  have a wildfire or two start and our brave firefighters are working  overtime. There are 3 fires that have burned 100s of thousands of acres.  One is just northeast of Phoenix. On June 27, a plague of locusts invaded a city in India. God Warned the World way back in Old Testament Times… 13 At times I might  shut up the heavens so that no rain falls, or command grasshoppers to  devour your crops, or send plagues among you. 14 Then if my  people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and  seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven  and will forgive their sins and restore their land. 2 Chronicles 7:13-14 NLT Let’s see… drought – check… grasshoppers/locust – check… plague –  check… Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Yep, God wants our attention.  Moreover, the instructions are very plain and simple! We are to humble  ourselves, pray and SEEK HIM AND REPENT! God will forgive our sins and  heal our land!

Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.  Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly… “Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me.

7.3: Can You Live in the World and in the Kingdom of God at the Same Time?
The short answer is — NO! Do you call yourself a Christian? Why? Is it because you… grew up attending a church with your family? were “born” in that denomination? Like I was born Catholic, to Catholic parents on a Catholic island. aren’t Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, or Hindu, so you must be Christian? attend a church every Sunday? attend a church every Christmas and Easter? grew up forced to attend a church you didn’t understand or had a bad experience, then stopped going? know that Jesus Christ is your personal savior and that He is the only way to get into Heaven? I hope you answered #7. Then you are a true Christian. All others fall into the category of the ones Jesus “never knew”.... Keep reading in my blog....

7.2: Suffering Hardship Even in the Kingdom of God
There's no doubt that our nation -- and our world -- are both going  through some tough times. Yet hardships are a part of life -- even the  lives of Christian believers. Jesus never said that once we become  born-again, saved believers that life would be smooth and wonderful. In  fact, we were warned several times in the New Testament that we would go  through trials, hardships and tribulation....

7.1: What Do You Absolutely Have to Do to Enter The Kingdom of God?
We’re told by Jesus in Matthew 6:33 that if we  seek FIRST the Kingdom of God, He will provide everything that we NEED.  That’s “Jehovah Jirah” — “The God who Provides”. Everything that we own,  we have it because God let us have it. But that’s a lesson on  stewardship and I’m not going there today. Besides our “daily bread” or needs, we also long for or “thirst” for a  relationship with Jesus. That’s why He died on the cross. He didn’t  suffer and die on the cross so that we could have religion! He wants a relationships with each and every one of us — personally! 3 Things Jesus Requires of Us to Enter the Kingdom of God.... Keep reading on my blog....

6.30: How to Discern Between the Gospel Truth and a False Teacher
With all the fake news we have to weed through on social media these days, it's hard to imagine that we also have to weed through false Christian teachers. This is tough because some of these folks have strong voices. They're very charismatic. And they have huge followings. I'm not going to tell you who to listen to and not to listen to. My purpose in this article is to show you the warnings in the Bible about false prophets or teachers. Most importantly, how to tell the difference between what's true or false. At the bottom of my blog I've embedded 3 videos. Please take the time to watch them -- and ask God and the Holy Spirit to open your mind, heart and eyes to discern the truth. Click on over to my blog to listen to other podcast episodes on the topic and to watch the 3 videos on false prophets. Guaranteed to be eye-openers!  Pray that Jesus and the Holy Spirit will guide you and show you the truth.  If you want to be able to discern the truth, you MUST have the Holy Spirit in your heart! How do you get him? By inviting Jesus to be your Lord and Savior! Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly… “Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. I will follow you for the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. In Jesus' name, Amen.” Seek the Truth! Soli Deo Gloria -- to God Alone be the Glory!

6.29: Why Do You Go to Church? To Get to Know Jesus?
What is Your Reason for Going to Church? Is it… To be seen? Because your parents or spouse said so? Because you were born ________ Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist, whatever? To feel good? To sing in the choir or play in the band? Because you’re drawn to God but you don’t know why? Because you’re searching for answers? To worship and praise God and hopefully hear a good sermon/message that speaks to you? What would Jesus say about Your Church? Would he approve of the message? Would he be impressed with your service projects? What category does your church fall under... Keep reading on my blog to get dig deeper...
