Brother Benedict A. Davis and I were having a long talk about the many lies that the media, Hollywood and "common knowledge" spread about Christianity. Like Jesus, True Christians™ are continually harassed for being right about everything. We need to fight against these lies!
Matthew 5:10 "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
LIE #1: Christians force their beliefs on others.
Truth: Christians know that each person is free to choose for himself!
In order for a person to be able to make the only available right choice, that person must know the truth about Christianity. So Christians are required to gently tell
others the truth about Christianity, so those others can make an informed choice. Next time a Christian tells you to do as he says or burn in Hell for all eternity, please realize it is just a gentle suggestion!
2nd Timothy 4:1-2 "I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine."
LIE #2: Christians don't believe in killing.
Truth: Christians don't believe in committing murder!
Murder is the deliberate killing of another human being who is not at fault. But there are many types of killing that are not counted as murder:
Leviticus 24:16 "When he blasphemeth the name of the Lord, shall be put to death."
LIE #3: Christians shouldn't discriminate.
Truth: Christians must discriminate against sinners!
- Whenever God tells us to kill people, it is not murder.
- Capital punishment carried out by authorities as punishment for a crime is not murder.
- Killing in warfare is not murder.
- Killing animals is not murder.
Christians don't discriminate against people because of race, origin, or sex. But Christians are required to discriminate against the following:
Romans 1:26-27 "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet."
LIE #4: The Bible promotes slavery.
Truth: The Bible only uses slavery to satisfy just judgments!
- People known to steal pies or eat chicken.
- Lazy people (including those without a real job).
- Sexual immorality (including homosexuality and sex before marriage).
- Unbelievers (including Muslims, Catholics, Atheists and Hindus).
- Seducing others into sinful behavior (including Oprah, Obama and Justin Bieber).
In all of the cases where the Bible allows slavery, it is either for punishment of a crime, or to work off a debt. And in all cases, except prisoners of war, the slavery should not last longer than 6 years.
LIE #5: The Bible is full of hypocrisy.
Truth: The Bible is incredibly honest and sincere!
The great leaders of the Bible did terrible things, including murder, rape, and adultery. But if you read all
of the Bible, you will find out that they were also criticized for their actions when they disobeyed God. The Bible is the only historical record that totally records the wrongdoings of the leaders of a country. Instead of condoning that wrongdoing, as the media currently does with Obama, the Bible exposes it for all to see. And the reader who reads the entire Bible will find either that the wrongdoing was punished, or that the particular leader was a nonbeliever, and was criticized for acting totally outside God's will. Often a nonbelieving leader was assassinated by another nonbeliever.
LIE #6: You can't know if you will get into Heaven until you die.
Truth: Admission to Heaven is a choice!
If you genuinely
accept God's gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, you gain admission. And you will know you have gained admission. If you don't know
you have gained admission to Heaven, you have not yet accepted God's gift of salvation through Jesus Christ! God gives special consideration to those who never heard of the plan. But if you are reading this, you just read about it.
Mark 16:16 "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned."
LIE #7: All religions must be equal. Anything else is unfair.
Truth: All religions other than Christianity are fakes, designed to mislead people.
They trick people by telling them what they want to hear. But they don't have the power to save. All other religions demand that you do a lot of work to gain acceptance. But with Christianity, God already did all the work.
John 15:6 "If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned."
LIE #8: God prohibits sins to keep people from having fun.
Truth: God prohibits sins because they cause harm to others.
Every sin has a consequence that causes harm to both the sinner and others. Even though you can't see the harm a sin causes, God can see it. He wants you to avoid the harm to yourself and to others. For example: sex always requires the consent of more than one person, in addition to God's approval.
1st Corinthians 6:18-19 "Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?"
LIE #9: Christians judge others by pointing out what actions are sins.
Truth: Telling people about sin is not judging. It is teaching the Bible and warning the sinner about God's penalties.
Judging is saying that the person is guilty of a sin. That's God's job. The Christian's job is to tell people what sin is, so those people can change their behavior to avoid sinning.
John 7:24 "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment."
LIE #10: Ignore sins, because God forgives sin.
Truth: God only forgives sin when you quit sinning!
Jesus' words to the adulterous woman He had forgiven in John 8:11
are: "go, and sin no more."
God only forgives those who stop sinning!
LIE #11: Christians should support government social programs.
Truth: The Bible says to use charitable donations instead.
The Bible talks about donations for the poor, instead of using taxes and tithes for the poor. The hypocrites in the Obama government give to the poor out of what is not theirs to give. They steal from others to give their "gifts".
LIE #12: Christians are supposed to love all people, no matter what they do.
Truth: Loving people does not include condoning their wrongdoing.
Instead, Christians show their love for people by steering them away from the wrongdoing that leads to spiritual death. A Christian who loves you wants to keep you from destroying your life. To do that, he must show you how sin leads to eternal damnation, and how Jesus is the only way to turn away from Hell.
LIE #13: Christians are against science.
Truth: Christians only oppose bad science.
Unlike the Holy Bible, science continuously contradicts itself.
Genesis 1:3 "And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."
Hebrews 11:29 "By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned."
LIE #14: Christians commit hate crimes.
- The science used to "prove" evolution is not really proof. Evolution is called a theory for a reason.
- The scientific community rejects all miracles as "random chance". As if the Red Sea just happened to split when Moses arrived.
- Likewise, the "proof" that homosexuality is hereditary has been shown to be bad science. It would also disproves evolution. Evolution would have eliminated any homosexual trait long ago. This is also abused to claim homosexuality can't be a sin, because it is not the result of a choice. Since homosexuality is not hereditaryit has to be a choice!
- The Big Bang Theory is now looking more like the Big Flashlight Theory.
Truth: Many "hate" crimes are intentionally written be child raping democrats to make Christian behavior illegal.
Examples of unconstitutional laws that criminalize Christian activities as hate crimes:
Proverbs 23:13-14 "Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell."
LIE #15: Christians do evil by committing crimes.
- Laws making illegal any Bible study of the sins a candidate commits during an election campaign.
- Laws criminalizing obedience toward God.
- Laws criminalizing telling others about Christ.
- Laws criminalizing the teaching of "intolerant" parts of the Bible.
- Laws prohibiting corporal punishment.
Truth: People who commit crimes while claiming to be Christians are not Christians.
Matthew 24:24 "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."
- Mentally ill people who commit horrible crimes tend to blame Christ for their actions. In reality they are punished by Christ for being bad people.
- Someone pretending to be Christian to impress someone (e.g. a girl he wants to rape).
- Someone too lazy to read the entire Holy Bible and find out the real truth.
- Someone learning about Christianity who refuses to stop sinning.
- A person, like Obama, who hates Christianity and wants to discredit the religion.
LIE #16: The Bible is full of errors and inconsistencies.
Truth: There are no errors in the KJV1611 Holy Bible.
This is abundantly clear to everyone who has actually read the entire KJV1611 Holy Bible. Everyone else will keep claiming there are errors and inconsistencies, simply because they are to lazy to investigate the actual evidence. Repeating a lie is easier than investigating the truth.
2nd Timothy 3:16 "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness"
LIE #17: God is a monster who punishes people for trivial infractions.
Truth: God punishes sin at the end of life.
In most cases, God postpones punishment, because he also offers a way for anyone to be pardoned from sin. To see a real monster, you need to look no farther than Obama.
Psalm 9:17 "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God."
