Jesus, Name Above All Names

Is God The Author Of Sin?

Here is a statement of doctrine held by many Calvinist:

The Westminster Confession of Faith states, “God has predestined and foreordained some men and angels to everlasting life out of His free grace and love without any foresight of faith or works in man or perseverance in either of them, and others are foreordained to everlasting death and the number of either is so certain and definite that it cannot be increased or diminished.” (Chap. III, art. 3,4 &5; Chap. X, art. 2).

The Confession of Faith of the Presbyterian Church, U.S.A. says, “God from all eternity did by the most wise and holy counsel of his own will, freely and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass … By the decree of God, for the manifestation of his glory, some men and angels are predestined unto life, and others foreordained to everlasting death. These angels and men, thus predestinated and foreordained, are particularly and unchangeably designed; and their number is so certain and definite it cannot be either increased or diminished.” (Chap. III)

Calvin’s Institutes states, “All are not created on equal terms, but some are preordained to eternal life, others to eternal damnation; and, accordingly, as each has been created for one or other of these ends, we say that he has been predestinated to life or to death.”

It is impossible for God to predestinate and damn angels and men because of their sin and he is not the creator of sin whereby they are predestinated damned.

Predestination demands God is the author of sin!

Did God damn angels and men because he created them sinners? If so, God was the author of their sin since they had no control over how they were created.
Did God make it impossible for some angels and men to be saved because he created them to be sinners so they would be worthy of his wrath and eternal judgment? If so, God is the author and creator of their sinful condition.

In the partial Calvary and limited grace heresy of three-god John Calvin (accomplice in buring Michael Servetus at the stake), Jesus did not love the whole world. He loved only those whom God the Father did not create and predestinate to be sinners.

Is this sound doctrine?

God is not the author of sin. Predestination as taught by John Calvin is a heresy.

Salvation By Grace Through Faith

God’s grace and man’s faith is the basis of salvation. There is no salvation by grace alone!

Acts 2:38 is the plan of salvation of grace through faith.

Why are so many trying to say Peter was false on the day of Pentecost in his preaching?

Men and brethren what shall we do?

This begging question still has the same answer today.

The only thing is, those on the day of Pentecost were pricked in their hearts. Until a person has this Godly prick in their heart they will not ask: Men and brethren what shall we do?

When a person is concerned about going to hell for their sins and evils; and when they see their future of hell-fire and eternal torment: they will turn to God with all of their heart. When this happens, they will seek the grace of God by faith. And without this faith it is impossible to please God.

Now how is it possible that a person cannot please God without faith, if they are saved with no faith at all?

May I say to all the world, if you neglect so great a salvation as is found in Acts 2:38, you will have no excuse for being lost.

Now, how can a person neglect something if they are saved without any faith and or faith-works, which if they neglect, they are lost?

I can tell all of you, if you neglect to please God in salvation, holiness, separation from the world, and believing the Truth, you will be lost.

Seek the Lord today. Seek salvation according to Acts 2:38.

You will not regret it if your heart is right with God.

Ok, You Ask

Reformed Baptist
1.) It is a protestant daughter of Rome, and holds strictly to the trinity doctrine of three separate divine persons in the Godhead;
2.) Accept and adopt the Nicene Creed, Apostle’s Creed, and the Athanasius Creed;
3.) They are all 5-point Calvinist which means predestinated grace and salvation. Some can and some cannot be saved. Calvary was not for everyone, just those predestinated, all the rest are damned and even if they want, they cannot believe and be saved;
4.) Many practice infant baptisms although there are some who do not;
5.) The Holy Ghost and speaking in tongues has ceased and those today who speak in tongues are devil possessed;
6.) Salvation is not by faith, as faith is a merit, and a person exercising faith to obtain salvation as in Acts 2:38, are not saved;
7.) Salvation is when a person feels God has put his laws into their heart and they believe they are forgiven of their sins by the soverign grace of God: and then must be examined by Elders and the congregation to see if their lifestyle is in agreement with Reformed doctrine.
Obvioulsy, none of this is in the New Testament as the faith or doctrine of the Apostles and New Testament Church.

Now I know the purpose of this question. But, I want it understood I am not in agreement with, nor do I support anyone who is part of Rome or her daughters.

Jesus Name

Jesus name is the highest name!

Jesus name is to be praised higher than any name!

There is no salvation exccept in Jesus name!

Jesus name is the only name given under heaven among men, whereby we must all be saved!

Whosoever denies Jesus name, has last their faith in the only name for their salvation.

When a person calls upon Jesus name, they are calling upon God!

In Jesus name, all the other titles and names of God are fulfilled!

Jesus is the true name of the Messieh of Israel!

Jesus is the name of the King of the Jews!

Jesus is the Christ (Messieh) the Son of the Living God!

Jesus name represents the name of the Father and the Son (I came in my Father’s name and ye received me not)!

The false names Yahshua and Yahweh are not Jesus name!

Do not be deceived by Law-Keeping and Concision sacred-namers, who claim Jesus name came from Zeus name. I have proven they are perverters and distorters.

Jesus, the name greater than Moses, greater than Solomon, and greater than all names throughout the world. Even greater than Mohammed, Buddha, or Hare Krishna!

Jesus, Praise The Name Of Jesus!
