Pastor John Lawrence: A perversion of grace and the Gospel

Refer to the following Youtube clip (Pastor John Lawrence on grace and the Gospel) to see Pastor John Lawrence's views regarding the topics of grace, the Gospel/salvation, and licentiousness.

Pastor John Lawrence stated in the beginning that there were no rules in the Garden of Eden and creation (including Adam and Eve) enjoyed the greatest amount of God's grace there. That is wrong. God clearly created rules in the Garden of Eden. He forbid Adam and Eve to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (refer to Genesis 2:9). God's grace was present before and after their disobedience, however, His grace wasn't meant to be used as a means to sin (nor was it the cause of their sin) as He clearly warned of the consequence for disobeying Him- which was death. The cause of sin was man's own choice to disobey God out of their free will (they wanted the perks of disobedience- i.e. receiving the knowledge to become like God- knowing both good and evil). It was narcissism and the pleasure received from sin that were the root causes of their downfall which was instilled into them by Satan (as he is the father of narcissism and sociopathy- the desire to become like God by rebelling against Him). This means that even though God has grace, He is a just God (He requires justice). God required justice for their disobedience- which was eventual death, the specific curses for men and women (refer to Genesis 3:16-19), and banishment from the Garden of Eden and Tree of Life). God's grace provided a redemption from these curses in the future through Yeshua (Jesus Christ). The Bible warns that there will be carnal minded people who will abuse and pervert this grace of God into licentiousness and their condemnation has been already recorded (refer to Jude 1:4 and Hebrews 10:26-31). Today, Satan uses false teachers to negate God's justice (in regards to sin), just like he did with Eve. Satan told Eve that she wouldn't die even if she disobeyed God (in order to disarm her conscience, remove both guilt and the fear of God). Similarly, he deceives Christians today by giving them a false sense of security into their eternal destruction through various carnal minded Christian doctrines (ex. Calvinism/Free Grace theology and its components like penal substitutionary atonement, imputed righteousness, unconditional election/predestination, unconditional eternal security/OSAS, dispensation of grace, etc.). Such doctrines disarm people's conscience (it creates a dead conscience in them), remove both guilt and the fear of God regarding licentiousness.
There's no doubt that there are carnal minded Christians today who want to abuse God's grace and forgiveness into licentiousness. That is clearly seen in Malayalee churches (through their carnal behavior). Take a look at Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media sites to see their love for the world and boasting about their selves/pride of life- which indicates that they do not have the love of the Father in them (refer to 1 John 2:15-17). Even young adults post their secret immoral behavior (which they restrict access only to their trusted carnal minded friends through Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter privacy settings). Carnal minded Christians can abuse and pervert the grace of God all they want (through their doctrines) and deceive others regarding this also- however, they can't run from God's justice. He will make them pay for their wickedness (refer to Galatians 6:7-10; Acts 5:1-11; 1 Corinthians 11:27-32; and also the warnings of judgment/punishment to the churches in Revelation chapters 2 and 3).

An example of a person abusing God's grace and forgiveness into licentiousness is George Sodini who went and committed mass murder in a town in the U.S. (refer to What led George Sodini to become a murderer?). How many Christian pastors today portray a false form of godliness and engage in sexual immorality/extra marital affairs on the side (refer to the Ashley Madison website scandal- 400 Christians pastors caught in adultery)? How many young adults among Malayalee Christians have premarital live-in relationships (fornication), have casual sex (one night stands), go to night clubs, go to strip clubs, etc.? How many married young adult Malayalee couples continue to go to night clubs, strip clubs, attend bachelor/bachelorette parties which may involve strippers/escorts, etc.? Only God knows if they are having "open marriages" (adultery). Then they come to worship God on Sunday. They'll do missionary trips and let people know about that in order to show their superficial form of godliness (a form of gaslighting to deceive others regarding their real wickedness). An utter abomination and mockery of God's grace.
False teachers who have perverted God's grace into licentiousness have created sociopathic murderers (ex. George Sodini and carnal minded elitists). The Bible reveals that killing someone isn't the only way to be seen as a murderer in God's eyes. In 1 John 3:14-19, the Bible teaches us that if Christians hate their fellow brothers and sisters (through the way they treat them- i.e. dominating them/trying to be elitists over them, bullying/mistreating them), they are murderers at heart and furthermore, have not passed from death into eternal life. I remember coming across a racist white (Caucasian) American (who claimed to be a Christian) online on Youtube who was making inflammatory and racist comments towards non-whites (African Americans, anyone who has brown skin like Latinos, Middle Eastern people, Indians, etc.). He was saying how America needs to be protected from all non-white races. When I confronted him, he revealed how he believed in the various components of Calvinism (which I already mentioned above) which he used to justify his racism. Carnal minded and sociopathic ideologies like Calvinism create sociopathic and racist elitists/supremacists. This elitism and carnality is also quite common in Malayalee churches. It shows that very few have been regenerated because their own doctrines deceive them to justify their wickedness. Carnal minded doctrines have created mentally abnormal people (narcissistic sociopaths- aka antisocial personality disorder) in churches today, who go to great lengths to justify their wickedness.

As a Christian, one needs to understand that there are limits to God's grace (refer to The Limits of God's Grace). Do not be deceived by false teachers who pervert God's grace into licentiousness. Let the Holy Spirit and God's word be your teacher, instead of false teachers deceiving you (refer to 1 John 2:26-27). One also needs to understand that God's grace is meant to empower you to overcome sin (refer to 2 Corinthians 12:9). It's not some favor/overlooking from God's part to allow you to sin freely.

Carnal minded preachers pervert God's grace because:
(1) it allows them to disarm their conscience, remove both guilt and the fear of God when engaging in various sins. This can range from sexual immorality to elitism and greed (i.e. using the name of "Lord's ministry" to make money).
(2). it caters to the itching ears of carnal minded people who want to indulge in sin instead of trying to get rid of it from their lives. When such people hear their messages which pervert God's grace into licentiousness, the same thing happens to them also (i.e. their consciences are also disarmed and it removes both guilt and the fear of God when engaging in various sins). That is why they will applaud them and support them financially.

In the end, both the blind guides (false teachers) and the blind (carnal minded people led by false teachers) will fall into a ditch (the lake of fire and burning sulfur). Refer to Matthew 15:13-14. That's why Jesus told the church in Laodicea (who had the same type of spiritually blind carnal minded people) to buy spiritual ointment from Him so that their eyes would be opened to their own wickedness and spiritually dead state (refer to Revelation 3:15-19).

Being carnal minded results in death (no eternal life), even for those who profess to have a faith in Christ (i.e. impostors within Christianity who have a counterfeit faith). This is according to what Paul warned believers in Romans 8:5-14; Galatians 6:8 and 2 Timothy 3:8.

Romans 6:1-2,10-18 (NLT):
Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? 2 Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it?

10 When he died, he died once to break the power of sin. But now that he lives, he lives for the glory of God. 11 So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.

12 Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires. 13 Do not let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve sin. Instead, give yourselves completely to God, for you were dead, but now you have new life. So use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God. 14 Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace.

15 Well then, since God’s grace has set us free from the law, does that mean we can go on sinning? Of course not! 16 Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living. 17 Thank God! Once you were slaves of sin, but now you wholeheartedly obey this teaching we have given you. 18 Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living.

Jude 1:4 (NLT):
I say this because some ungodly people have wormed their way into your churches, saying that God’s marvelous grace allows us to live immoral lives. The condemnation of such people was recorded long ago, for they have denied our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

1 Timothy 4:1-2 (NLT):
Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons. 2 These people are hypocrites and liars, and their consciences are dead.

Refer also to 1 John 3:3-10; 3 John 1:11; 2 Peter 2:1-3,12-22; 2 Timothy 4:3; 2 Timothy 3:1-9,13-14 and Hebrews 10:26-31.

No matter how much carnal minded Malayalees try to hide their behavior (live secret immoral lives while attending church), everything will be revealed eventually. I used to remember when people in India used to say things about NRIs living abroad (claiming that only they live immoral lives because of western influence) and even now (when you see immorality rampant in India), they say that it's because of western influence (they never accept responsibility for their own choices). How can they accept responsibility regarding their choices when carnal minded Bible teachers have created them to be sociopaths- i.e. people with dead consciences who believe that nothing is wrong with themselves no matter what sins they do and only others are in the wrong because they do sins (which reveals their sociopathic hypocrisy). These pastors need to open their eyes to what is really happening around them and moreover, genuine Malayalee Christians need to hold them accountable/kick them out of their assemblies when they promote licentiousness. Otherwise, you'll be getting a generation of really wicked people. Today, because of carnal minded doctrines, many perversions are rampant among carnal minded Malayalee Christians (ex. homosexuality/bisexuality, incest, pedophilia, fornication, adultery/open marriages/swinging, divorce, etc.). Refer to the Youtube clips below for an example of some of the perversions mentioned above:

There are young Indian Youtube celebrities (ex. Superwoman) who also give us a picture of the mind of the modern Indian girl (full of promiscuity and doing whatever it takes to get attention from others). She also reveals why Indian girls prefer dating white (Caucasian) men in one of these clips.

The Church needs to be aware of how Satan is infiltrating Christianity to destroy it and spread his lawlessness.

Today, many Malayalee girls (as well as females from other races) fall for Satanic sociopathic charm from men (aka alpha males). Such alpha males are experts at charming women to get into a relationship with them (they are seen among all races of men- Malayalees, other Indians, whites, African Americans, Latinos, etc.). They are the children of the devil. Women's psychology have been destroyed by their sinful nature to the point of them despising nice men (godly men) and instead desiring wicked sociopathic men who are out to only use them and destroy them. Refer to the following clips and posts:

The clip below shows how sociopathic men use pick-up lines to charm women:

I've also dealt with more on this (i.e. the rise of sociopathy in society) in one of my posts by a different user name- TruthSeeker (refer to Idolizing relationships).

Carnal minded Christians use various ego defense mechanisms to promote licentiousness. For example, they can project their sins (past, present, future sins) onto Christ through their doctrines of penal substitutionary atonement and imputed righteousness. This allows them to live in denial that they actually need to get rid of their sinful behavior. They rationalize and intellectualize (which are other ego defense mechanisms) licentiousness through false doctrines. Thus, they end up promoting licentiousness and allow their consciences to be disarmed and thereby be made into sociopaths (which is evident in many of their churches as many of them have turned into dangerous sociopaths- people with dead consciences who have no problem in sinning). Out of Satan's hatred for Christianity, he influences carnal minded "Christians" (those who love and justify licentiousness through their doctrines) to destroy their churches as well as themselves (refer to the following Youtube clip Fighting in a Brethren church). That's why he's the ultimate sociopath (he causes problems between people as well as get them to destroy themselves). Satan markets his carnal minded/false form of Christianity to people as it appeals to their sinful nature. Just like how people market unhealthy food, sodas, etc. which destroy the body and which also appeal to man's sinful nature, in a similar way, Satan markets carnal minded Christianity to destroy both body and soul (i.e. make man subject to God's eternal punishment by not getting rid of sin from their lives, but instead deceive them to justify it through deceptive doctrines).

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…
