Scriptural Truth

Circumcision: A Cut to the Heart

Circumcision, like Baptism, has become a tradition, custom or requirement that differentiates greatly between the religions of the world. ‘Jews’ are well known adherents to a physical circumcision as a way to continue the Covenant of Circumcision between Abraham and God. Muslims consider circumcision an act of ‘purification’ and Christians are split on whether a physical circumcision is required. Catholics are against it and Orthodox Christians are for it. Many protestant Christians, like Catholics, see a water Baptism as the replacement or extension of Circumcision, but this approach varies between denominations.

Consider, as well, the discrepancies between government guidance on the issue. In the US, the government has framed circumcision as a health issue. World War II recruits were routinely circumcised. It is still a commonplace procedure for infants prior to leaving the hospital. Many parents support the practice in adherence to government health guidance. In 1965 over 85% of the US population circumcised male infants. That number has been dropping ever since. Meanwhile, several European countries have tried to outright ban the practice. With such a dizzying array of understanding and motivation for circumcision, has anyone actually cut to the heart of what God calls for?

Beware of False Prophets and their Hypocrisy

Jesus warned of false prophets and false teachers who would come at the end. He also said to beware of their leaven which is hypocrisy. But no one seems to be listening. I see the majority being deceived, a fulfillment of prophecy, following after lies and deception. They follow deceit (chaff) and forsake the Truth (wheat). They walk in darkness because they listen to and obey false prophets. The wheat is much preferred!

“I am the light of the world. He that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no one comes to the Father, but by way of me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also…”

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit.”

Jesus Christ – John 8:12; John 14:6-7; Matthew 7:13-17

Q&A: “What is Baptism?”

Sprinkled or dunked? Required for infants, kids, teens or adults only? Performed before salvation, after salvation or is it the actual act of salvation? Baptism. One of the key ‘sacraments’ of most ‘Christian’ denominations, is fraught with disagreements. Who, what, when, how and even if followers are to be baptized is one of the major defining tenets that differentiates between the denominations. Who is in-line with God? Let’s sort this all out.

Choose This Day Whom You Will Serve!

The pastors of the people in America are paralyzed and confused by having to choose what to do. It is a case of the blind leading the blind; they are all groping in darkness. A recent article, ‘Many Bible Belt preachers silent on shots as COVID-19 surges’ on AP, states:

Those involved with the COVID-19 vaccination effort are having a problem getting pastors to publicly advocate for the shots because some have referred to them as “the mark of the beast,” a biblical reference in the Book of Revelation. They say it represents a reference to “allegiance to the devil.”

“Some pastors are hosting vaccination clinics and praying for more inoculations, while others are issuing fiery anti-vaccine sermons from their pulpits. Most are staying mum on the issue…”

Evangelical pastors in the Dark on COVID-19

While the Protestant Evangelicals remain silent, a major stockholder in the pharmaceutical companies has “demanded that all relevant stakeholders/stockholders exhaust all efforts to confront vaccine hesitancy…” They manifest themselves by their all-out efforts. And show themselves to be a House divided against itself.

Q&A: “Jesus ‘Healed the Sick’, can he Cure Covid?”

Heal the Sick

Open Bible, light from sun

Jesus was a healer, he healed the sick, but not in the way most of the world has come to understand. Most believe Jesus was a ‘miracle’ worker; making the blind to physically see, the deaf to physically hear and the lame to physically walk again. Jesus did not heal anyone – physically that is. What other “healing” could this be?

Feed My Sheep

Before Jesus left, he commanded and sent his apostles to go out and “Feed my sheep”. He had twelve apostles because there were twelve tribes of the House of Israel and he gave them the authority to go and teach.

“Three times Jesus asked Peter, ‘Do you love me?’ He said to him, ‘Lord, You know all things; you know that I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my Lambs… Feed my Sheep.’”

Jesus – John 21:17

“These twelve Jesus sent forth and commanded them, saying, ‘Do not go in the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter into any city of the Samaritans. But go rather to the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel. And as you go, preach/teach, saying, ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.’”

Jesus – Matthew 10:5-7

Did Jesus expect his sheep to be fed of canned food drives or ‘Spiritual Food’? Crackers and grape juice or the Word of God? Many churches want to serve their flocks with community oriented activities such as musical events, fund raisers, youth meetings, day care, gyms and sports, etc. But they have not healed the sick; bound up the brokenhearted; searched for those who are lost; fed the flock; nor let them know what time it is. Consequently, they are hungry and desolate of the knowledge of the Most High God. They have forgotten Him and their restingplace.

What is the Chaff to the Wheat?

There is a lot of talk about fake News and misinformation in the News lately by the talking heads. But what about those who give misinformation and falsehood regarding God’s Word? Jesus and his Apostles warned of these continuously. The Bible calls falsehood ‘the chaff’ while those who profess the truth of God’s Word are compared to ‘the wheat’. So what is the chaff to the wheat? As darkness to Light, error to truth, wickedness to righteousness, death to life.

False teachers are as the chaff!
“What is the chaff to the Wheat?

Francis Addresses Abuse Scandal – The Devil Did It!

“Pope” Francis is up to the church’s old tricks.  Deflect and distract.  Every day for the month of October, he has asked “the faithful” to pray the rosary and to pray to Michael the Archangel.  What are they praying for?  In response to the ever-expanding abuse scandal, Francis has asked them to pray “to repel the attacks of the Devil who wants to divide the Church.”  During a morning mass in September, Francis addressed exactly what these attacks against the church were.

“In these times, it seems like the Great Accuser has been unchained and is attacking bishops.  True, we are all sinners, we bishops.  He tries to uncover the sins, so they are visible in order to scandalize the people.  Let us pray, today, for our bishops: for me, for those who are here, and for all the bishops throughout the world.”  Francis

Apostles Refute the Apostles’ Creed

The Apostles Creed is recited across many of the “Christian” religions.  This creed is a “statement of faith” often used as part of baptismal ceremonies.  In the previous article on this subject, we showed that the apostles themselves would not even know the Apostles Creed.  It was fabricated three hundred years after Jesus and the Apostles under the influence of Babylonian, Greek, and Roman worship practices.  These practices are contrary to God’s Word.

Let’s look more closely at this creed and at what Jesus and the Apostles themselves had to say.  To begin, what exactly is the creed?
