• The Gift of God

    22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants of God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
    23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:22-23 - - - in the Holy Bible)
  • Now Is Christ Risen

    20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
    21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
    22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. (1 Corinthians 15:20-22 - - - in the Holy Bible)
  • Our Justification

    20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
    21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
    22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
    23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;
    24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus Christ our Lord from the dead;
    25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification. (Romans 4:20-25 - - - in the Holy Bible)

  • How to Identify a 21st Century "Religious" Cult

    How to Identify a 21st Century "Religious" Cult | site |


    In true Christianity, we do not coerce. We lead. We guide. We teach. We encourage. We edify. We do not coerce.

    In true Christianity, we do not give "faith tests". We observe and seek to discern the quality and nature of one's faith; but, we do not administer "faith tests".

    In true Christianity, the individual is always free to exercise his or her free will to remain in the congregation (or body) or to choose to freely walk away. We do not "capture" people. We do not "control" people.

    In true Christianity, we exercise oversight of congregations, churches, organizations, ministeries, etc. In accordance with the Holy Bible, we "bear rule". Yet, in "bearing rule" we neither bind nor enslave a person. We never imprison a person.

    In true Christianity, the worshipper/adherent is free - - totally free. He or she may remain or leave (at any time) on his or her own free will. There is no bondage.

    Cults are almost the opposite of true Christianity. Many cults coerce, control, place in bondage and/or require allegiance to some "human" or earthly figure.

    There appears to be a proliferation of "religious" cults in the current flow of "spiritual" organizations.


    "Religious" cults are dangerous organizations. Their major telltale sign is CONTROL. They want to control the individual.

    It is very clear from the Holy Bible that the spirit of control is like the spirit of witchcraft. It is Satanic. It is psychotic (the "controller" has a psychological illness). The controller has a weakness in his or her character and psyche that he or she seeks to overcome by controlling others. In other words, the controller is simply mentally sick (and watching one human being control another human being that way is sickening).

    When a person has a psychological problem he or she sometimes seeks to "remedy" his or her situation by abusing others. They do not call it abuse (they rationalize a reasonable-sounding purpose for, and result of, the abuse). Yet, it is abuse nonetheless.

    Whenever an adult person's free will is usurped by another person or organization, you may be rather sure that it is abuse.

    This is an area that needs to be treaded lightly and carefully. One's free will can lead one into many kinds of unhealthy, unfavorable, and dangerous situations. Wise counsel is most necessary. However, wise counsel and human control are two completely different courses of action.

    Wise counsel is both helpful and healthy.

    Human control is neither helpful nor healthy.

    Wise counsel does not usurp the will of the individual being counseled nor does it impede the individual's opportunity, right or obligation to think and act for himself or herself.

    Human control fails at all three of the pristine hallmarks of wise counsel.

    The demented mind often veers off the path of sanity. Thus, the controller has taken an irrational path that he or she tries to "justify" as being both correct and necessary. In fact, it is neither.

    The demented mind seeks to exploit human weakness. It (the demented mind) seizes on human distress, human frailty, human importunity, human misery, human suffering, human vulnerability, human inability, human need, human isolation, human naivety, human ignorance and human exasperation.

    Examine the life stories of people that are in cults. You will normally find that they entered the cult because they sensed a real or imagined deficit in their lives. The deficits can run the gamut from loss of employment, loss of food, loss of shelter, separation from family, substance abuse, etc. The demented mind of the controller quickly recognizes an opportunity to gain an upper hand over the suffering and hurting person. The demented mind slowly lures the individual into the cult's "family" trap and the controlling process begins.

    Anyone that seeks to stand between you and Almighty God is not of God.

    Anyone that seeks to usurp your human will by breaking you away from your mother, father, sister or brother is not of God.

    Anyone that insists that you obey him or her exclusively is not of God.

    Now, we must tread lightly here. Almighty God gave man the rule over the woman. The husband has the last word (under God) in the household. The woman is required (by God) to obey her husband or separate from him (if they cannot agree). However, this is not coercion. The woman, at the marriage ceremony, pledges (of her own free will) to obey her husband. Thus, it is a free will decision made by the woman. No controller made her make that pledge.

    The situation in the cult is different. Caught in an unfortunate situation, the person entering the cult is "required" to submit to control (such submission under what could be termed "duress" is not submission under clear and full free will). This is a mark of the cult. The requirement to "submit" violates the free will principle.

    Cults often try to break a person away from his or her "natural" support group. The family is the number one "natural" support group. A telltale mark of the cult is the advocacy of (and often the requirement of) family breakaway, family estrangement, family separation, family push-away.

    The cult tells the controlled person that it (the cult) is now his or her "new" family. The cult verbally denigrates the person's view of his or her natural family. Thus, the cult has broken the natural bond (or at least tried to break the natural bond the person has (or had) with his or her natural family.

    The cult seeks to not only become the person's new family; the cult seeks to become the person's new "god". What the cult says is everything. Total allegiance is required. Religion becomes what the cult says religion is. God becomes (to the controlled person) who the cult says God is. The person has been captured. The cult has become the person's god. The person is in danger.

    The person's natural family is suffering. The love bond has been attacked by the cult. The entrapment and imprisonment of their loved one is devastating. The need to fellowship with their loved one is denied. The opportunity to freely communicate with their loved one is denied. The loved one is fully entrapped and does not seem to know how to get free. The natural family grieves.

    We know cults are not of God because neither Almighty God, Jesus Christ nor the first apostles of Jesus Christ treated new Christians the way cults (as described above) treat their new adherents or "converts". Jesus Christ never imprisoned a Saved person. Jesus Christ never usurped the free will of a Saved person (even when he "ambushed" Saul (our Apostle Paul) on the Damascus road, he (Jesus) gave him commands but did not make him obey the commands. When John Mark decided to leave Saul (Paul) and Barnabas and return to Jerusalem, Paul (though he did not like it) did not imprison him and make him stay with them. John Mark was free to go (and he did go [apparently of his own free will, and later he returned, apparently of his own free will]). John Mark wrote the New Testament book of Mark (apparently of his own free will [under the unction and guidance of the Holy Ghost]).

    It is very clear (from the Holy Bible) that the Apostle Paul never imprisoned a Christian convert or required a Christian convert to stay with him. As a matter of fact, near the end of Paul's life on earth he said:

    9 Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me:
    10 For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.
    11 Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry.
    12 And Tychicus have I sent to Ephesus. (II Timothy 4:9-12 - - - The Holy Bible)

    It is very clear that the Apostle Paul had not imprisoned any of the people that participated in ministry with him. As a matter of record, Paul goes on to say:

    16 At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it not be laid to their charge. (II Timothy 4:16 - - The Holy Bible)

    People were able (apparently of their own free will) to forsake the Apostle Paul. Clearly, he did not have them in captivity.

    Cults hold people in a state of captivity. Neither Almighty God, Jesus Christ nor the Apostle Paul held (nor hold) people in captivity. That is how we know assuredly that controlling cults are not of God.

    Israel's sins caused God to send them into captivity (as punishment for the sins). Yet, it is clear that Israel had the "free will" opportunity to sin (which it did [many times]). The Apostle Paul referred to himself as a prisoner of the Lord but that too was of his (Paul's) own free will.

    The number one "illness" of the cult is that it is not of God. Its leaders do not truly know Almighty God. They are not Saved. They develop sophisticated and impressive organizational structures but those structures are merely "human" structures and are often powered by Satan. If they were truly of God there would be liberty.

    17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. (2 Corinthians 3:17 - - - The Holy Bible)

    The activity of Satan always spirals downward eventually. In its very essence, it is rebellion against God. By not truly knowing Almighty God, but acting "for" and "instead of" Almighty God, cult leaders show themselves to be in full rebellion against Almighty God. They are actually practicing a type of witchcraft!

    22 And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
    23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king. (I Samuel 15:22-23 - - - The Holy Bible).

    A final telltale sign of a cult is this: While it claims (and appears) to be doing the work of Almighty God, it is really doing the work of man and the work of Satan.

    When all is said and done, cults simply work the works of iniquity.

    21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my father which is in heaven.
    22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
    23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:21-23 - - - The Holy Bible)

    "Many will say . . . "
    "Many will say . . . "
    "Many will say . . . "
    "Many"
    "Many"
    "Many"
    Not a few, but "many"!!!

    Jesus says:

    28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
    29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
    30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30 - - - The Holy Bible)



    In conclusion, Almighty God is sovereign. He can call and send whomever he wants whenever he wants (because He is God). He called and sent Moses. He ordained and sent Jeremiah. Being God, He has full right to rule and super-rule. We are not Almighty God.

  • An Open Letter To Christians That Care

    Open Letter
    AN OPEN LETTER TO CHRISTIANS THAT CARE


    Dearly Beloved:

         The 21st Century has been characterized by surprise attacks, catastrophic tragedies, wars and indiscriminate killing.  In some so-called "civilized countries" the rule of law has been usurped by the concept of pre-emptive strike, summarily ordered targeted assassinations, and "collateral" killings.  Violence has broken out and we seem unable to contain it.  We find ourselves on "uneasy" footing.  We have become both offensive and defensive.  Our guard is up and we are continually looking over our shoulders.  This is not a peaceful picture.
         Yet, one would think that such calamity would draw us nearer to God.  However, I'm inclined to believe that we have reached a point where the "gap" has widened (or, rather, I should say, "been widened").  For those of us who would live Holy in Christ Jesus, it does not appear that our society is drawing any nearer to Him.  To the contrary, we seem to be moving farther away.  If that is the case, not only are we Spiritually demented, we are irrational as well.
         Many of you are well aware of the Biblical assurance that, "Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.  (Proverbs 14:34).  So, then, we are presented the choice of the ages; righteousness vs sin.  We choose one and reject other.  Righteousness is our choice when we obey the Word of God.   When we do otherwise, sin is our choice.  It is impossible to disobey the word of God and have such action accepted by God as being righteous.  Though we sometimes seek to replace God's word with our own, God is  neither fooled nor amused.  So, then, we remain the losers still.
         Today, Christians must quickly decide between the commands of man and the commands of God.  In the United States of America, a number of sinful acts are being "legalized".  Christians should quickly understand that many of these "legalized" sins require us to take actions that are contrary to the Will of God.  We need to decide who we are, whose we are, and to whom our allegiance will be given.  We will not be able to halt between two opinions.  The lines are being clearly drawn and we have no choice but to choose one side or the other.
         I think Christians should be careful to stay abreast of the many actions that impact our options.  For example, Christians, being citizens, have the Right (and obligation) to provide input concerning proposed rules, regulations and laws.  Such input could help keep those legislative acts within the purview of God's Will.  Otherwise, we have to choose to obey man or God.
         God established marriage and set the rules therefor.  Many people in our society do not believe God.  They have no regard whatsoever for Him.  Many others have been misled by impostors and/or carnal Christians.  They, too, see no problem in acting in contravention of the law of God.  So, the stage is set:  What will the Christian do?
         Recently in America, the issue of same sex "marriage" has forged its way to the forefront of discussion.  Most Christians I know believe that God teaches that such same sex activity is extremely sinful.  Yet, the debate goes on and in at least one State (Vermont [USA]) a type of same sex "union" has been "legalized".  The impact on Christians will probably be more grievious than imagined.  Thus our nation is headed in a direction that will make it a less accommodating place for Christians.
         New Jersey seems poised as the second US State to push beyond the laws of God and "legalize" same sex "unions".  Under a Bill called the "Domestic Partnership Act ( already passed by the Assembly [A3743 { and under consideration by the Senate, with passage sought before the January 13, 2004 Session ending]}) people could form a "domestic partnership and cohabitate, engage in sexual activity, and enjoy many (if not most) of the privileges of being married.  The new proposed Bill is so sweeping and far-reaching that it seeks to change the policy of the State of New Jersey (regarding marriage) and at the same time, establish another type of "union" that I believe is totally against the Word of God.  It would certainly promote fornication (as we define it in Christianity) as well as fully abuse the standards of decency God has set for families, communities and nations.  The mere number of other state laws it seeks to change is staggering (P.L. 1944, P. L. 1945, P.L. 1954, P.L. 1961, P. L. 1965,  P.L. 1969, P. L. 1973, P. L. 1977, P. L. 1989, P. L. 1991,  N.J.S. 18A, N.J.S. 54A, R. S. 26, R. S. 54, and others).  More specifically, it seeks to institute same sex "unions" under the "partnership" guise.  While a cursory reading of the proposed Bill (A3743) would seem to grant many expanded Rights to all people, the net result is to make it possible for same sex lovers to enter into a "marriage".  The cohabitation sought to be made legal by the bill is sinful regardless of the sexual orientation of the proposed participants.  However, in seeking to create a "marriage" (not the bill's terminology) class for same sex participants, the bill flies in the face of Holy Scripture.  With this, Christians would have to deal (they would  have to decide to obey or disobey [or rather, they would have to decide to obey God or man]).
         The proposed New Jersey Bill (A3743) is even more egregious than the above.  It seeks, in addition, to make the partner equal (or almost equal) to the Spouse in a regular marriage.  Indeed, at some points in its proposals, it proposes having a surviving partner of a "domestic partnership" be referred to under the designation, "Surviving Spouse".  In other sections it seeks to afford the Widower or Widow designations to "surviving partners".  In decisions concerning donating the organs of a dying or expired "partner" , the Bill proposes to afford more authority to the "partner" than to the adult child, parent, or sibling of the expiring or expired individual.  In other words, it is very clear (in my view) that the intent of the bill is to create a class of "marriage" for same sex lovers.  That said, in my view, traditional marriage is also attacked by such provisions as are included in New Jersey's A3743.  The ease of contractual cohabitation is offensive to Biblical teachings.  God established marriage, not contractual cohabitation.  He specifically prohibits and pronounces His judgment against fornication.  By creating an inferior class of "marriage" New Jersey (and any State) would (in my view) be mounting an attack against Godly marriage.  God also specifically prohibits same sex intercourse.  So, God makes no provisions for the marriage of people of the same sex.  Yet, man, in his "wisdom" seeks to supercede God and move "beyond" Him.  The New Jersey Assembly Bill (A3743) may be view at the following URL:
                                  http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2002/Bills/A3500/3743_R2.HTM
         As can be seen from the above, the Christian of today is indeed faced with challenges.  We should not take these issues lightly.  If we want the favor of God, we need to obey God.  If we choose the favor of man over that of God, let us be fully aware of what we are doing (rebelling against God).  It is before God that we must all appear and He is no respecter of persons.  As for me, I care. I choose to obey God.
