Christ is Risen

2 Corinthians 5:21

"He made him who knew no sin to be sin for our behalf so that we may become the righteousness of God"

Jesus Christ who knew no sin was made sin in the sense that all the sin of mankind was laid upon Jesus at the cross.

When we repent of our sin (Turn away from sin) and embrace Jesus as Lord and master of our lives believing that God raised Jesus from the dead (Romans 10:9-11) then Christs righteousness is laid to our account and he see's the righteousness of Christ on the cross.

We have all broken Gods laws (Romans 3:23) and the payment for our sins is death (Spiritual and physical Romans 6:23)

But God offers us forgivness of our sins and offers us a way to ecscape by repenting and turning from our sin and embracing Jesus as Lord and Master.

As an analogy imagine you were in court and had broken a law that would cost 5,000 dollars or 5 years in jail. You do not have the money and are being taken to jail when suddenly someone stands up and pays your fine.

Because the debat has been paid you are free to go.
We have all sinned and all stand guilty before the God of the universe but We are told for those who truly repent of their sin and confess that Jesus was raised physically from the dead (Romans 10:9-11) then when you do that your debt has been paid and now you are no longer a child of wrath (Ephesians 2) and are now a child of God (John 3). 1 John 2 tells us one way to know if we are truly sons of God is by our obedience to his word and our love for him. We are told when we do sin that if we confess it and turn from it that Christ will forgive us.

We will all die one day and stand before the judge of the universe and so this Easter I pleasd with you that if you do not know Christ as Lord and Master then flee from sin and Run to the cross.

Anyone wanting more information can feel free to email me.

God Bless

Fear Of God Has Been Lost In The Church

Scriptures on the Fear of the Lord


5:11 Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade men. What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience.


6:5 Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ.

2:12-13 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed--not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence--continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.


11:7 By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family.

12:21 The sight was so terrifying that Moses said, "I am trembling with fear."


1:17 Since you call on a Father who judges each man's work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear.

2:17 Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king.

3:14 But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened."


14:6-7 Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth--to every nation, tribe, language and people. He said in a loud voice, "Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water."

15:4 Who will not fear you, O Lord, and bring glory to your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous acts have been revealed."

19:5 Then a voice came from the throne, saying: "Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, both small and great!"

The Case for Jesus - JP Moreland

(John 1:1-18 ESV)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light.
The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’”) For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father's side, he has made him known.


This debate between a former Roman Catholic now turned Protestant & a former Protestant now turned Roman Catholic . The debaters: representing the "Sola Scriptura" (the "Scriptures Alone" & nothing else) position is Rob Zins, Th.M, Dallas Theological Seminary (website: CWRC-RZ ORG), former Roman Catholic, author of the books, "On the Edge of Apostasy -The Evangelical Romance with Rome," "Romanism: The Relentless Roman Catholic Assault on the Gospel of Jesus Christ," "I Am a Christian. Perhaps You are Not. Is This a Big Deal?", editor of the newsletter "Theo-Logical", conference speaker, director of "A Christian Witness to Roman Catholics," & special guest with Larry Wessels in the 16 hour video series posted on YOUTUBE entitled, "ROMAN CATHOLICISM SERIES." Representing the Roman Catholic position which elevates Roman Catholic traditions & rituals to the same level as the Scriptures (the Bible) is former Protestant now turned Roman Catholic Gerry Matatics. According to Wikipedia Mr Matatics is a Sedevacantist apologist (Sedevacantism is the position held by a minority of Traditionalist Catholics who claim that the Papal See has been vacant since either the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958 or Pope John XXIII in 1963. Sedevacantists believe that Paul VI (1963--1978), John Paul I (1978), John Paul II (1978--2005) and Benedict XVI (since 2005) have been neither true Catholics nor true Popes, by virtue of allegedly having espoused the heresy of Modernism, or of having otherwise denied or contradicted solemnly defined Catholic dogmas. Some of them classify John XXIII (1958--1963) also as a Modernist antipope.) for what he's termed "consistent Catholicism" as opposed to "counterfeit Catholicism" (referring to mainstream Catholicism).

Prior to his conversion to Catholicism he was an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). He used to work for Karl Keating, as part of his "Catholic Answers" apologist team. Mr Matatics taught as a professor in St. Joseph's University, the Notre Dame Pontifical Catechetical Institute, and served for three years as Professor of Sacred Scripture and Apologetics at Our Lady of Guadalupe International Seminary of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter in Scranton, Pennsylvania, before becoming a Sedevacantist

Is the Roman Catholic Doctrine of the Virgin Mary Biblical?

Is the Roman Catholic Doctrine of the Virgin Mary Biblical or Not?

The Debaters: James White, Th.D., is director of ministries for Alpha & Omega Ministries, a Christian apologetics organization based in Phoenix, Arizona, (website -AOMIN.ORG) & an adjunct professor with Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary's Arizona campus. He is also professor of apologetics with Columbia Evangelical Seminary, and a critical consultant for the Lockman Foundation on the New American Standard Bible update. James is a published author of many books including "Mary - Another Redeemer?" published by Bethany House Publishers. Robert Fastiggi, Ph.D. is professor of religious studies at Saint Edward's University in Austin, Texas. He is a published author & a Roman Catholic apologist. Mark Gunning is the moderator.

In his celebration of the Marian Year in Rome in 1950, Pope Pius XII accurately reflected the Roman Catholic Church's view of the Virgin Mary in his pontifical prayer: "Enraptured by the splendor of your heavenly beauty and impelled by the anxieties of the world, we cast ourselves into your arms, Oh Immaculate Mother of Jesus and our Mother. Mary ... we adore and praise the peerless richness of the sublime gifts with which God has lifted you above every other mere creature, from the moment of your conception until the day on which after your assumption into heaven, He crowned you Queen of the Universe. Oh crystal fountain of faith, bathe our minds with the eternal truths. Oh fragrant lily of all holiness, captivate our hearts with your heavenly perfume. Oh Conqueress of evil and death ... Receive, Oh sweet Mother, our humble supplications and above all, obtain for us that on that day, happy with you, we may repeat before your throne that hymn which is sung today around your altars. You are all beautiful Oh Mary. You are Glory, you are the Joy, you are the Honor of our people."

The Roman Church has elevated the Virgin Mary according to the following declarations:
1. Mary is the "Mother of God"
2. Mary had an "Immaculate Conception"
3. Mary has "Perpetual Virginity"
4. Mary is the "Co-Redemptrix & Mediatrix of All Graces"
5. Mary experienced "Assumption into Heaven"
6. Mary is the "Queen of Heaven"

Deuteronomy 5:7-9 states, "Thou shalt have none other gods before Me. Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord am a jealous God, visiting the inquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me."

Larry Wessels, director of Christian Answers of Austin, Texas (YouTube channel: CANSWERSTV, see websites: BIBLEQUERY ORG, HISTORYCART COM & MUSLIMHOPE COM) debates Roman Catholic scholar Dr. Robert Fastiggi of Saint Edward's University located in Austin, Texas on the question of whether the Roman Catholic Church preaches the same Gospel as the Bible does or does it preach a man-made counterfeit. The apostle Paul gave a tremendous warning and threat in Galatians 1: 6-9 concerning the importance of preaching the correct Gospel because the consequence for preaching a false Gospel is eternal damnation for the preacher and his followers ("I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed."). This is part 1 of a fast-paced and fiery 2 part debate (also known as the "Reformation Debate"). The differences between the two debaters in this theological war could not be greater. One can then understand why the great Reformer Martin Luther in church history had said, "Previously I said the Pope was the Vicar of Christ. I recant. Now I say the Pope is the adversary of Christ and the apostle of the Devil". Virtually all of the historic confessions of faith of the major Protestant denominations hold that the Pope is the very Anti-Christ mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12.

Cosmic Treason!

Cosmic Treason

All of our sins, whether they are directed immediately at a righteous God or at the unrighteous men who bear His image, are sins against God. They are an assault on His dignity and holiness.

The eye can detect a single photon of light, the faintest light possible. Despite some evolutionists claiming that the eye is badly designed, it is impossible to improve on this sensitivity! Richard Fangrad and Calvin Smith explain why the eye is still a great example of design.

RUN !!!

(Matthew 7:13-27 ESV)

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”

God Of Wonders

(Psalm 19 ESV)

The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
and its circuit to the end of them,
and there is nothing hidden from its heat.
The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul;
the testimony of the LORD is sure,
making wise the simple;
the precepts of the LORD are right,
rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the LORD is pure,
enlightening the eyes;
the fear of the LORD is clean,
enduring forever;
the rules of the LORD are true,
and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold,
even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey
and drippings of the honeycomb.
Moreover, by them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
Who can discern his errors?
Declare me innocent from hidden faults.
Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins;
let them not have dominion over me!
Then I shall be blameless,
and innocent of great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable in your sight,
O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.

Silencing the Devil

Lecture 4, Is God or Man Sovereign?:

How do we reconcile God’s sovereignty with man’s free will? Unfortunately, many in the church have offered answers that do not stand up to logic. While many others have charged that either God’s sovereignty negates human freedom, or that human freedom overrides divine sovereignty. So which is it, Is God or man sovereign? Dr. Sproul and Dr. John Gerstner have a mock debate over this, in this message entitled “Is God or Man Sovereign?”
