The Evening and the Morning” (New Year, Biblical Day) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvTJcFjMcZo

 

Cast Out And Deleted My Scriptures:  I was very much involved in Faithful Word Baptist Church and gave thousands of dollars into their ministry, I used their doctrine to evangelize many.  My son is presently still very much involved with their ministry.  Now recently I had posted a comment on the Steadfast Baptist Church youtube website (Resignation of Pastor Romero), as seen below.  But what did they do?, did they answer it? Did they come to my rescue? No they deleted me and kept Pastor Romero and his magic backpack.  Islamicize Me Day 27: The Penalty for Apostasy   https://youtu.be/ZKW2rwJljpA?t=227

Martyrdom:  In my understanding this is a form of martyrdom, a form of separating the wheat from the chaff, a form of casting out that unprofitable servant, separating the sheep from the goats.  I am posting it here where it may be appreciated by those who can deal with Scriptures rather than run from the Scriptures:

Posted 1/3/19 “This is the way it rolls when Repentance and Lordship are thrown out the window, I was in this doctrine and had very similar results. The way I got out of it was that I supposed I could be oppressed by devils. I realized the only way out was to make Jesus Lord of my life, and then I had power. But then I wondered if it was necessary for salvation. Reading Matthew 7 and John 6 and 8 I realized (on 8/25/18) that it was by means of that the Holy Spirit has the works, and if you do not have works you do not have the Holy Spirit and you are not saved. Mark my words, this is just the beginning, I speak from experience. Now that I make Jesus Lord of my life EVERYTHING has changed. Leave Donnie Romero alone and deal with the doctrine. If he repents everything will be fine. I moved back in with my wife and kids and everything is fine. See my papers on all this at my website redirectionalism.com Any comments, or do I get deleted again? “

Pastor Steven Anderson posed on youtube: “The Evening and the Morning” (New Year, Biblical Day)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvTJcFjMcZo  37:55 “Now look, when it comes to getting to heaven it is just about faith it is not about works.  The Bible says by grace are you saved through faith and that not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works that any man should boast for we are his workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto Good works that God had beforehand ordained that we should walk in them.  So, we are saved by faith not of works.  But God has works that He commands us to do and if we do them, we will be rewarded … if your work is burned up the Bible says you will suffer loss but you yourself will be saved.  The Bible says, I mean flat out it says look, if your works are burned up all your works are wood hay and stubble you’ll loss and it says but he himself shall saved yet so as by fire.  So, it’s possible to be saved without having any works that your rewarded for on judgment day.  It’s possible to get to heaven on faith alone by grace alone through God alone or to God alone be the glory and to get there without any rewards,  39:15.   40:13 now do we earn our salvation no, do we earn the ticket to heaven, no it’s totally by grace, it’s totally of God we don’t earn it we don’t deserve it.”

Golden Ticket!? I am sorry to inform you people at Faithful Word Baptist Church / Steadfast Baptist Church, there is no Golden Ticket! Veruca Salt’s Golden Ticket  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9mba2qb9do  Pastor Anderson is mistaken to say:“ the ticket to heaven … it’s totally by grace”. Salvation is not a “ticket” pertaining to one particular day, that one should identify a day with saving faith. That is not how one knows they are saved according to the Scriptures (See 1 John 2:3, 2:193:14). We know we are saved by our works and making Jesus Lord of all and our relationship with Him as such, that is what the Scriptures teach. If you have no works there is no assurance.

.

Regenerated Christians Have Works: Pastor Anderson may say, Romans 4:3 says “For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.”, you can see Abraham was saved by faith. But I am talking about assurance of the believer today, not after he is resurrected. Faith alone is not what proves we are saved today, works do that.  Note this is the case in John 8:30,31, 34,35, 39ff: “As he spake these words, many believed on him. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free…Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth forever. … They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. … Ye are of your father the devil, …. ye are not of God.”  Here in John 8 Jesus is showing that He is the Son of Abraham who took on him sin and death, and not as these false believers, false sons, sons of the bondwoman who never was free from sin. Romans chapter 6:6, 7, 8, 20 goes into what Jesus meant here in John 8 when He identified with Isaac, slavery, and freedom.

.

Baptism:  Romans 6:3 says: “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? [4] Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. [5] For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: [6] Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. [7] For he that is dead is freed from sin. [8] Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:. [20] For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.”  What Jesus is saying in John 8 is that unless we have been baptized into His baptism by means of the Holy Spirit, unless we can repent of sin and have victory over sin in our lives we are slaves of sin, and we are free from righteousness and works. This baptism, this freedom is from God through the atonement as seen here in Romans 6. God gives the works and God gives the faith. Our baptism in church represents our baptism in the Holy Spirit.

.

Salvation is of the Lord:  Romans 6:23 says “ For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Apart from the gift of the Holy Spirit man can do nothing, man is dead, but through rather the death in Christ there is life, and in this death we have atonement, justification, sanctification and this kind of belief, this kind of faith is given to us from God. Yes, they had faith, but they did not have the baptism from God, they were not saved because they did not have the works of Abraham, the works of the new creation through baptism.  There is no resurrection power to do the works of Abraham without the Lord, Jesus said without me you can do nothing.

.

Making Jesus Lord: And all this would carry with it that unless you can make Jesus Lord of your life you are likewise a slave of sin and no son of Abraham. Salvation is of the Lord, and that salvation comes with the Holy Spirit who works the works of Abraham who went out to baptize his son. Abraham was as the Father involved in this baptism and in the resurrection of his son, Acts 5:30. And Abraham could not offer his son without himself being baptized as well (Romans 6), these are the works of Abraham. You can’t do them? Then consider that you are not saved, even though you believe Jesus can save you in spite of yourself as you continue as a slave to sin “that kind of faith” saves no one. Even the devils believe Jesus can save or damn them, James 2:19.

.

No Rewards Equals the Truth of Salvation? Answering Andersons comments that because one can be saved with no rewards you can still be saved using 1 Cor. 3:15 does not prove No-Repentance No-Lordship doctrine. You may have no works because you fell into sin and lost all your rewards: Ezekiel 33:13-16 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it. 14 Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right; 15 If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die. 16 None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.  If you do not repent and leave behind a mess when you die all your rewards will be taken away. See also Rev. 3:11 “Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.” And Hebrews 6:8 “But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.” Pastor Anderson wants to use passages such as 1 Cor. 3:15 and Romans 7 (separated from Romans 6) make the exception the rule, where the exception comes close to the fruit of damnation.
