    I agree with your theology, but you are still using one of the new Vatican Versions that NOBODY, not even you, believe is the complete, authoritative, inerrant and 100% true words of God. So what’s the point of teaching from a book that not even you believe is the infallible words of God?
    See Calvinism and the King James Bible to see how many of these truths are being watered down, undermined and corrupted. ( also included in the article is a link to “Undeniable Proof the ESV, NIV, NASB, Holman Standard, NET etc. are the new “Vatican Versions”)

    Calvinism and the King James Bible

    “He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.” Luke 8:8

    • Christopher Aggison says:

      For over 250 years, the KJV had no challengers.
      Now, there are over 1500 translations of God’s Holy Word.
      Lord, help us.

      • willjkinney says:

        Hi Christopher. You are right. God is sending a famine of hearing His words into the land – Amos 8:11, and He is doing it in the way man would not expect. Not lack of Bibles, but too many of them that NOBODY believes is His infallible words.

        The polls show that the majority of present day Christians do NOT believe The Bible is inerrant, and among seminarians the percentage is in the 90’s. And Biblical ignorance has now reached scandalous proportions. These are the polls. Not some fanatical ravings of a small group of KJB only believers.

        “The Bible is NOT the inspired and inerrant words of God”?

        Considering the Bible works from the viewpoint that everything revolves around the Earth, when it has been clear for hundreds of years that this is not the case, it’s troubling that there are still that many people believing in inerrancy. Surely God would have known that the Earth isn’t the centre of all things.

    • David Hoehler says:

      Regarding the inclusion of Martin Luther in your list, he did NOT teach the predestination of some to hell, although many non Lutherans think and repeatedly say that he did, usually using the Bondage of the Will as proof. He also did not teach the any sort of decision theology. God predestines and He desires all people, not all sorts or kinds of people, to be saved. Both are taught in the Bible and we should accept both even if we do not understand how to reconcile them to our limited understanding. By the way, I also believe in the infallible and inerrant word of God. Please stop quoting Luther as having your view of predestination, he did not. God bless.

      • willjkinney says:

        Hi David. I have read Bondage of the Will and it clearly seems that Luther believed in the doctrine of predestination. But I don’t care to get into a Luther debate. What I DO object to is your statement – ” God predestines and He desires all people, not all sorts or kinds of people, to be saved. Both are taught in the Bible and we should accept both even if we do not understand how to reconcile them to our limited understanding.”

        David, the fake bibles may teach this schizophrenic god, but not the King James Bible. Nowhere in the King James Bible will your read that “God desires all people to be saved”. If it did, then you would have a direct contradiction to many other verses, and this is the mess you have with these fake bible versions like the NKJV, NIV, ESV, NASB etc.

        If you have a verse that CLEARLY teaches what you said here in the King James Bible, could you show it to us please. Thanks.

      • willjkinney says:

        Hi David. Another thought. You might want to read my article on 1 Timothy 3:2-5 “who will have all men to be saved”. This is where they have perverted sound doctrine in these corrupted bible versions.

  3. Matt says:

    Why “repentance” and faith, if we are saved by faith alone? Then wouldn’t faith not be alone?

    Matt,
    Do you believe what Jesus said in His word? Both Jesus and John the Baptist preached ‘repentance’ for the remission of sins. Jesus did not die on the cross so that you could live your life ‘your way’. You must pick up your cross and die to self. People want a Savior, but not a Lord.
    Jesus said in His Word: Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!
    Repentance means to ‘change your mind’ or turn away from. Read the Word. Recognize the different sin in your life. Agree with God’s word that it is wrong, and ask Him to change your heart. He will empower you with the Holy Spirit to stop the sin. Pray that God would grant you repentance that leads to salvation, because the Bible says that it is a gift, granted by God. Believe what the Bible says. Believe what Jesus said. If you truly believe the written Word, then your life will reflect it.
    Hope that helps.

  6. sherry says:

    Matt,
    Having ‘faith’ means that you believe that Jesus is who He says He is, and that you believe His message. Jesus says that you must repent for the remission of sin, and that you must pick up your cross and follow Him. That means lay down your life as He did. Die to your wants, needs, desires, and ‘self will.’ Crucify your flesh. Surrender your life to Him. Let Jesus live in you and through, so that you can be a testimony for Him. You become His servant, and He becomes your ‘master, savior, Lord, friend, Father. You will find great peace and joy in Him that can be found no where else. God bless.

  7. sherry says:

    Today, we have millions on the broad road to destruction, because of the apostate Christian church today that tells people to bow their heads and ask Jesus into their heart, and then tells them that they are saved. I think most of those people are just dump sheep, because they don’t read their Bible. I used to be one of them. They are trusting in ‘man’ or a ‘pastor’, which, according to the Bible brings about spiritual BLINDNESS. As grievous as that is, all we can do is preach the truth and pray for them.

  8. Nick Spangler says:

    Ummmm…. Guy, I have heard so many of you guys kick this dead horse over and over. Overly obsessed with the “its hard to get saved” message that you miss it altogether. The verse in revelation 3 is not the verse we use to teach people to ask Jesus into their hearts in order to receive salvation.

    Galatians 4:6
    Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba , Father.”

    This is the verse that is the entire purpose for asking Jesus to enter into our hearts. Essentially you are asking God to give you what sons of God have. The spirit of Christ In our hearts and within the CONTEXT of galatians 4, to receive adoption to sonship.

    That is why sinners ask Jesus into their heart. They realize they aren’t sons of God, They want to be sons of God and have his spirit dwell in their hearts, so they repent.

  9. Sherry,
    Those in Matthew 7:22 are appealing to their works and not trusting in Christ for the free gift of everlasting life. Essentially they are saying “look at all this stuff we did for you, now you owe us.”
    What is “the will of my Father which is in heaven”? Is it keeping all of the commandments? Is that even possible to do? Does God’s law allow for partial obedience, or absolute perfection? I would suggest that the “will of the Father” is to believe in Jesus Christ for eternal life.
    “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life:and I will raise him up at the last day.” ~ John 6:40

    Here is a great message about the difference between “salvation” and “discipleship.”

    [audio src="http://www.stillwaterbible.org/audio/1999-Salvation-Discipleship/1999-05-16-Salvation-Discipleship-02.mp3" /]

    • willjkinney says:

      Hi Matthew. Good stuff, brother. You are right on. Nobody is saved by obeying the sermon on the Mount. And when Jesus said things like “Whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.” was laying down a Standard that only He could keep. What did the disciples end up doing? The all forsook Him and fled. Jesus went to the cross alone to redeem His elect people. Discipleship or sanctification is one thing; salvation by the grace of Christ is quite another. “to do the will of my Father which is in heaven” is in fact to repent and believe – See Matthew 21:28-32

      • sherry says:

        willjkinney,
        “Whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.” was laying down a Standard that only He could keep.

        That is incorrect. We are required to forsake all. Jesus said it and He meant it. We are asked to be willing to give up everything, even to deny mother and father, son and daughter (Luke 14:26). This principle is replete throughout scripture. Please continue to read the Bible and get further understanding. What God asks me to give up will be different then what He asks you to give up, but if you are a follower of Jesus, you will be tested and asked to give up what is most important to you. Why? Because if we have someone or something that is more important than God, it is idolatry. Idolatry, unrepented of, will cause one to perish (1 Cor 6:9).

        There is a parable in three of the gospels about a rich, young ruler who went to Jesus, asking what he needed to do to be saved. Jesus told the man to sell everything He owned and give to the poor. You see, it was idolatry in His life. He didn’t want to sell all of his possessions, and he turned away downhearted. Why? He forfeited salvation. During Jesus’s ministry, many of His disciples turned away from following him because His teachings were to hard (John 6:66) Were they saved? NO. They believed, but didn’t want to walk the walk. They forfeited salvation, by choosing to not go along with the program. The twelve that Jesus had chosen stayed. When Jesus asked if they wanted to go, Peter said, ‘Lord, to whom would we go, you have the words of eternal life.’ The 12 disciples did give up everything to follow Jesus(except Judas), and we must do the same. Judas of course betrayed Jesus and perished. The other disciples fled in fear and we’re not at Jesus’s crucifixion, except for John, the disciple that Jesus loved. The other 11 disciples did not turn away from following Jesus. They were young in their walk with the Lord, and did not understand things yet. However, their lives were dedicated to obeying, and preaching the gospel. They all the completed the race and all except John died a martyr’s death. Are you ready to do the same?? If not, ask Jesus to change your heart so that you are willing to do whatever He asks.

        If we ask the Lord to save us, we have to allow the Holy Spirit to sanctify us. If you resist the Holy Spirit and continue in blatant rebellion/sin you will develop a seared conscience, and will perish, UNLESS God grants you repentance. You have to cooperate with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is given as a seal, but it is given to those who obey the gospel(Acts 5:32). Jesus said that to be born again you must be born of the spirit and of water. The Bible references ‘water’ as the Word of God. It points out our sin and convicts us. The cleansing of the Word of God brings about a regenerate man. In the Gospel of John, Jesus ministry he told His disciples that they were clean. Why? Because they believed Him, obeyed Him, and they continued in His teaching which brought conviction, repentance, and change in their hearts -(mind, will, and emotions). What is the will of the Father? His will is to have a personal relationship with YOU, that is why he sent his son to die for you. Your sin separated you from Him. The personal relationship consists of repentance and obedience, and loving him with all your heart, soul, and mind. You talk to him when you pray, and He talks to you primarily through the written word. You come to understand Him and grow in your relationship as you walk it out. These components are essential to ‘doing His will’.

        Today, you don’t often hear people talk about repentance, only grace. Jesus said that the requirements were stricter for us, than those in the old testament. He said that before it was against the law to murder, now you must not even despise/hate your brother. Why are the requirements stricter for us? Aren’t we under grace? The Holy Spirit wasn’t given in the old testament. Today, we have the Holy Spirit, if we are truly born again. When we come into agreement with God’s Word about the personal sin in our life, he enables us through the Holy Spirit- the same power that raised Jesus from the dead- to overcome the sin, resist, be delivered from. The power not to sin, doesn’t come from us, but from God. God bless you:)

        Hi Sherry. Good luck with doing your best to be sold out for Jesus and obeying His commandments like those found in the Sermon on the Mount. When you finally fall flat on your face in utter failure and realize your own corruptions and some more about the wickedness and weakness of your own heart, you just might be ready to hear the gospel of the saving grace of Christ. God took me down that path many years ago and has done so with many others of His saints too.

        God bless.

      • sherry says:

        I am sorry I offended you. You are offended by the word. You stated something about scripture that was incorrect. We are commanded in the Word to bring correction in love, and that was what I was trying to do. Maybe I sounded harsh? My apology. It is also a commandment for us to point out error. We don’t just have the sermon on mount commands. There are do’s and don’ts throughout scripture. You misjudge me. You know nothing about me, but I can attest to the saving grace of God in my life, and having been on my face in utter failure like you mentioned about yourself. How God was able to changed me baffles people to this day. It was God’s mercy and grace and NOTHING that I ever did to deserve it. You can have the same. You can have freedom. You can have peace and joy in the midst of great trials. It does take you being willing to trust God and completely surrender your life to Him. It’s also a life long journey. Here is my email, if I you would like to talk more, or if I can pray for you. Sherrynml@yahoo.com

    • sherry says:

      Those people in Matthew 7:22 are calling Jesus, Lord, but are ‘practicing lawlessness/iniquity’. The Bible says in Romans 6:16 Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey–whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? If there is a true conversion, and the Christian continues in ‘the Way’ (remember we have the stay the course), then yes they will sin, but you should see less and less of it, depending on their relationship with the Lord. We are to grow up in the faith and not remain as babes still needing milk.

      Faith without works is dead. If you are abiding in Jesus Christ then you will bare fruit. Works become an outward manifestation of faith working salvation in the believer. You are saved when you accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. You are in the process of being saved as you work out your salvation in fear and trembling, and you will be saved-inherit eternal life, if you finish the race, remain faithful, and overcome.

      There are many who are doing great works today in Jesus name, but they are caught up in deception. They veered off the straight path…have gone astray. Jesus warned over and over about deception. Conversely, there are those who say they believe, but the fruit in their life attests to the fact that there was not a true conversion for some reason, such they were not given the full gospel, or they were not sincere, or they are in apostasy.

      God’s will for you is to have a personal relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. He says, If you love me, obey me. The Bible is a roadmap. Many people say they believe, but they don’t obey. They live as heathen. If one becomes born again, a sanctification process begins. You can know a truly born again person because you see the change/transformation which happens over time. John 3:8 “The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

      If a person says they believe, but they don’t read the Bible, don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus, and continue to live as they always have, then something is wrong. Jesus says if you practice certain sins like fornication, you will not inherit the Kingdom. If Jesus says it, I believe it. Let God be true and every man a liar. Today, in the Laodicean church, repentance is not taught. People are Biblically illiterate and think they are under grace to continue sinning. That is not the Gospel. They are following ‘another Jesus’ . The demons believe, but they not saved. Mormons, Jehovahs Witnesses, and Joel Olsteen say they believe, BUT they obey ‘Not’ the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
      We are commanded to test/prove all things. We do that by comparing what is said and done (ourselves and those who claim to be Christians) with God’s written word. If we know God’s Word then we can examine ourselves and others, and know if we/they are in the faith. Do you have to be in the faith to be saved? YES, YES, YES

      Matt, we can go round and round on this subject, but for you to have initially questioned ‘repentance’, it seems like maybe you’ve miss understood something important. Without repentance there is no salvation. Look at the following verse: 2 Cor 7:10 -For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

      If there is a TRUE conversion then there will be repentance. I’m not advocating blameless perfection, but you should be getting conviction daily from the Holy Spirit, and striving to live a Holy and blameless life. If you are a Christian, you should be living your life as a sacrifice, in order that you may be a testimony of Jesus Christ’s saving grace living in you and through you. Do you have a testimony? God bless

  10. Here is where I am coming from. Those cast into the lake of fire are not written in the book of life. The gospel of John was written so that people might have life.
    “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” ~ John 20:31
    “Life” is the main issue. Jesus came for this purpose.
    “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” ~ John 10:10
    “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.” ~ John 5:39-40
    If you have a Bible app or something similar, search for the word repent or repentance in John’s gospel. It’s not in there. If repentance was required to receive eternal life, then we would have to say that somebody really dropped the ball.

    Here are some good verses:

    John 1:12
    But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

    John 3:14-19
    And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
    He that believeth on him is not condemned:but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

    John 3:36
    He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life:and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

    John 4:13-14
    Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

    John 5:24
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

    John 6:29
    Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

    John 6:35
    And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life:he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

    John 6:40
    And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life:and I will raise him up at the last day.

    John 6:47
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

    John 7:38-39
    He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive:for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

    John 8:24
    I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins:for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

    John 11:25-27
    Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life:he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? She saith unto him, Yea, Lord:I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

    John 20:31
    But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

    1 Timothy 1:16
    Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

    Acts 16:30-31
    And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

    • sherry says:

      The scriptures that you listed are all true. However, there are other scriptures that would seem to contradict them, such as the ones about repentance. Now go and read all the scriptures on repentance and sin. Read the gospels and the parables and ask for revelation. They are called paradoxes…two seemingly contradictory ideas, that are not actually contradictory. You have pieces to the puzzle, but don’t have the whole picture. Pray for revelation. God will give it to you. Blessings.

      • Question? When do you get eternal life? Right now? When you die? At the judgement?

      • sherry says:

        Matthew 13:13-15 (KJV)
        13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
        14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
        15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

        Mark 4: 11-13
        11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:
        12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.
        13 And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?

        2 Thess 2:10-12
        10 and with all the deceit of unrighteousness in those who perish, because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
        11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie,
        12 that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    Matthew,
    Here is a response I wrote to someone, who had actually written to you. Please read and see if you can glean a deeper understanding. I’m praying that you will go and read the Bible from cover to cover. You can’t really pull out certain scriptures AND let them stand alone. The Bible tells a story and scripture builds upon itself. Ask for the Holy Spirit’s guidance, and a deeper understanding. Scripture interprets scripture, line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, there a little. A bigger picture will begin to be painted in your mind.

    This is there comment.
    willjkinney,
    “Whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.” was laying down a Standard that only He could keep.

The power not to sin, doesn’t come from us, but from God. God bless you:)
