What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

Little children, it is the last time... even now are there many antichrists... they went out from us... that they might be manifest that they were not all of us.... These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you” (1John 2:18,19.26). When the Roman Emperor Constantine mandated that all her citizens become “christian” the church in Rome delighted in declaring itself the catholic church, baptizing babies, worshiping Mary, and executing naysayers with their Roman sword. That is not “Christian” and calling it such is “fake-news.” The Roman Empire divided and two Orthodox daughters came of this mother of harlots. The king of England divorced and an Anglican daughter came out; Martin despised indulgences and the Lutherans were hatched. The Anglicans further divided into Episcopals, Wesley brothers and their Methods, and John Calvin with his Presbyters. Now the harlot had multiple denominations. Calvin despised priest-craft, loved hating Israel, and decided Jews were not the elect, Christians were. Methodists took their salvation methods and United with catholic Episcopals. The holiness movement wouldn't unite and birthed Pentecostals, who Oral Roberts and Benny Hinn divided into Church of God, Christ, Nazarene... et.al. All these are denominations, divided 157 ways, daughters of the Mother of Harlots, ergo anti-christs who deny Christ's power and think that salvation comes from sacraments or penance, baby-baptisms or baptismal regeneration, life methods or church mandates, election or enduring to the end ... et.al. These are mistakenly called “christian.” Nothing but free-will voluntary belief in the gospel message and calling solely on the Lord Jesus Christ can produce a Christian, and nothing but an autonomous, non-catholic, non-protestant, non-denominational, local, independent Bible believing church can represent what Christ called for in Holy Scripture. In brief, the latter is a Baptist. Praise the Lord.
