Quick Warning About This Websitehttp://www.biblicalresearchreports.com/More Like This
I was led to this website earlier by someone who was trying to show me something on it, and I noticed some glaring issues in it, particularly in their "How to Become a Christian" page (other issues include placing doctrine from Matthew - John in the New Testament, which is not actually correct (check Hebrews 9:15-17). I don't know if this site is popular or not, but I know I should still warn you about it just in case.
For one, it says that a part of getting saved is "confessing you sins," which is untrue. A person isn't saved by confessing their sins, verses like Romans 3:28, Romans 4:5, Ephesians 2:8-9, and Titus 3:5 say that a person is justified by faith, not by confessing their sins. They also leave out the gospel found in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4. Another terrible mistake is their fourth point, where it says, "If you want to become a Christian, pray something like th
Answers to Two Post-Trib Questions (3 more coming)I accepted a challenge a few months ago to answer five questions from a post-trib rapture believer. I'm sorry that I have been slacking in answering them, so I'll give these completed ones out. The questions are in bold, with my answers following.More Like This
*Note: please read the Scripture references from the King James Bible.
Q1: Can you point to a direct scriptural reference that states that Jesus could come at any moment and that no events or signs must come first? (Be very careful to consider the context here.)
A: I want to point out first of all that this question paints a false picture of what pre-tribulation believers profess. I do believe that there are signs that come before the rapture (which I will get to). Here is 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 --->
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us,
Joy to the World, and Right DivisionAt this time of year, we hear various songs and carols about Christmas. Here's an interesting sermon based off of "Joy to the World," and why the doctrine in that song cannot be applied to today. The doctrine in this song will not come about until Jesus Christ establishes His kingdom after the time of Jacob's trouble (Jeremiah 30:7)More Like This

This is a very popular little phrase that can be found in church “Statements of Faith” all around America. It’s been repeated and published so much that many of us don’t even think about it, and just accept it as true. It was a statement that I used to accept as well because I just assumed that the biblical “scholars” knew better than I did, and I just blindly went along with it. However, I’m writing this journal to shed some light on this pet doctrine, and to expose it for the filthy lie that it is.
There is not ONE location in ANY bible that teaches that only the originals were perfect, and that now we only have imperfect copies to rely on. In fact, there is actually no place in Scripture where even God exalts the originals! If He did, wouldn’t the originals still be here? Wouldn’t He care enough to preserve the originals so that we could ha
Watch Out for John MacArthurJohn MacArthur is supposedly this exalted and famous bible teacher who people in most churches seem to love. However, he teaches two very destructive heresies that can very well send people to hell. I wanted to use this journal to expose them.More Like This
1. The Blood of Christ
He teaches that the blood of Christ doesn't save anyone, that it was His death alone. However, that isn't what the Bible teaches. While it does teach that He had to die, it also says that His blood needed to be shed. Otherwise, our sins could not be washed away. This is a huge deal because a person has to have faith in the atoning blood of Jesus to be saved (Romans 3:25, Ephesians 1:7, Matthew 26:28). The following is the passage from Hebrews 9:12-22 which shows the necessity of not only the death of Christ for our salvation, but also His blood. In order to be saved, you must trust in Jesus Christ alone to wash away and forgive your sins.

The Road to FaithIt is amazing, to think that God can reveal Himself and His messages to us in every aspect of life, no matter how miniscule or insignificant we may consider these instances to be.More Like This
In our walks of life, it is easy to ignore what He tries to tell us, or what He tries to show us, because we are often too caught up in our own ambitions to pay any attention.
We live in a get there fast, me first society. We speed on the roads when were late, not caring who we endanger in our paths. We ignore people trying to merge into our lane, even if their blinkers are on. We speed up to close gaps, even if we know someone else is trying to merge over. We get angry, and curse at people on the road for driving slowly, even if theyre elderly people or people who are simply not used to the area.
But more often than not, we dont see what we are doing. We promulgate wrath and pride so much, these two destructive traits have b
