Grace gone mad

Grace gone mad (God's grace is being perverted by many false teachers today):

David Servant says in an article (As a Father - Shepherd Serve)- "One of America's most well-known preachers, who was twice elected to be the president of the Southern Baptist Convention, who has written scores of best-selling Christian books, and who is heard around the world via his television and radio broadcasts, is a primary proponent of the doctrine of unconditional eternal security. In a book on this very subject, he wrote:

No matter what you do as a child of God, you are forgiven. You say, "Murder?" Forgiven. "Stealing?" Forgiven. "Adultery?" Forgiven. "Worshiping idols?" Forgiven.

Note that he did not write, "No matter what you did prior to becoming a child of God, you are forgiven." He wrote, "No matter what you do as a child of God, you are forgiven." His argument is that Jesus died for all our sins, so there is no future sin we can commit for which He didn't die. Our only danger is that of forfeiting special rewards in heaven.

That is grace gone mad.

And that kind of teaching is what leads people like George Sodini to think they can murder people yet go to heaven, even though Scripture teaches that no murderer will inherit eternal life (see 1 John 3:15; Rev. 21:8; 22:15).

That kind of teaching also leads people to think that their behavior has nothing to do with their ultimate salvation, even though Scripture teaches that no unrighteous person will inherit God's kingdom, which, according to Paul, includes fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, homosexuals, thieves, the covetous, drunkards, or swindlers (1 Cor. 6:9-10; see also Gal. 5:19-21; Eph. 5:3-6). Jesus' own teaching certainly affirms this also."

All sociopaths will get what they deserve in the future

Recently, I've been seeing a celebrity having a hard time in his own life. He's clearly a sociopath and people have hated him for a long time. I didn't agree with his sociopathic behavior and tactics, but I always thought perhaps some good might still be in him. Nevertheless, things are falling apart in his own life despite the success he's had in the past. Now people are trolling him and enjoying seeing his fall from glory. I hope he learns his lesson, repents, and becomes a better person so that God will lift him up in due time. However, if he chooses to continue to indulge in his sociopathic behavior, he invites his own destruction. This is how Satan blinds people today (he blinds them through their success to make them think that as long as they have success, it's ok to be evil) . He is the ultimate sociopath. With human sociopaths, change is still possible, even though it's a difficult and rare thing for them to change. However, with Satan, he will never …

Pastor Anish Kavalam's ban on pants and ties for men

I found this video funny [refer to Pastor Anish Kavalam's criticism of those who wear pants and ties]. I like the Mr. Bean reactions along with the circus music in the background. Made it funnier. I've heard some sermons of Pastor Anish Kavalam calling out people (both men and women) regarding immodest clothing and carnal minded behavior in church meetings- which were good messages. However, his ban against pants and ties are going to the extreme of the conservative end of the spectrum. Also, in this clip, some of the pastors sitting behind him are also wearing pants. Thus, his criticism seems hypocritical in that manner also. This war between extremist conservatives and extremist liberals along with the elitism promoted by both groups is what is destroying Malayalee churches. Malayalees have been terrorists (through psychological abuse/bullying) in their churches for a long time. It's part of their church politics and elitism. Now it has spread to the internet where psych…

Brethren vs Pentecostal debate (Snehasamvadham)

Couple of months back, various Malayalee Brethren and Pentecostal Bible teachers came together to have a debate regarding various topics. Refer to the following links:

(1). Pentacost-Brethren Snehasamvadham- Dallas 2016

(2).Post-debate thoughts by Pr. Shibu Peediakal and Br. Ashish Jacob

(3).Pr. Shibu Peediakal refuting Brethren Assembly Preachers again

One of the topics that Pastor Shibu has addressed in various clips on his Youtube channel is regarding speaking in tongues (which of course, the Brethren teach that this gift has ceased with the early Church). Personally, I don't believe that the gift of tongues has ceased. Will all believers speak in tongues to demonstrate they have been baptized by the Holy Ghost? It's a very controversial question and subject. From studying Scripture, I personally haven't been convinced that speaking in tongues is a mandatory requirement for all believers. Each has a different gift that the Holy Ghost gives them in order to minister to o…
