JB Buffington - Full Time Christianity (Pt. 2 of 4) Be sure your sin will find you out! This is one of the most misunderstood statements in all God's Word. Moses is speaking of one particular sin, that being a stubborn refusal to wholly follow the Lord! There are many sins that go unexposed here on earth

Temple Baptist Church - 5-16-20182 Peter 2:9-22Introduction:A. We need to remember our context tonight to get the proper meaning of the verses that I will deal with. I am going to look at these verses in reverse order to show who these people are and how they got here.B. Verses 20-22 have been used more by way of application than contextual interpretation. 1. I fear that the true meaning of these verses has been lost because of topical peaching. YOU MUST always give a Biblical interpretation of a verse before making a practical interpretation! 2. This is simply Biblical Hermeneutics. It is called the Context Mention of Bible Interpretation. When taking a verse out of its context, it often becomes a pretext! Great application but no Biblical interpretation. This can lead to serious doctrinal problems.3. It lends itself to Biblical ignorance which destroys the people of God. God's people are destroyed for a “lack of knowledge.” Preaching through the Bible book by book establishes the people of God doctrinally.C. When you get to these verses, the context has not changed as the first word of verse 20 in the word “For.” The Holy Spirit is now going to draw a conclusion to chapter two. Chapter two begins and ends with false teachers!D. In verses 20-22, these Old Testament false prophets and New Testament false teachers did not lose their salvation, they were never saved. You can wash them all that you want to make the outside smell a little better, but that does not change their inward nature: dogs are dogs and hogs are hogs! 1. Their Dereliction. “falling away”2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, (2) That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. (3) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition …2 Peter 2:17-20 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. (18) For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. (19) While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. (20) For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.a. Many used the Greek word for “falling away,” which gives us a commonly used word “apostasy.” The words “falling away” give us the actual meaning of “falling away from a former position.” To fall away from something, you must have once stood for something!b. These “dogs” and “hogs” vomited up and left their wallowing in the mire. The “dog” detested but later invested in heresy. The “hog” detested the mire but later returned to its filth.2. Their Deception.a. Their damnableness. 2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.b. Their deceiving. 2 Thessalonians 2:2-3 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. (3) Let no man deceive you by any means …1) “spirit” A spirit that is disobedient to the Scriptures. Teachers who teach and act contrary to clear Scripture and say that they are led by the Holy Spirit.2) “word” A message that does not comply with the Scriptures. Man-made doctrines that do not line up with the clear doctrinal teaching of the Scriptures.3) “letter as from us” A false “word of God” that takes precedent over “The Word of God.” False “bibles” from perverted underlying texts that bring about confusion over what is or is not Scripture.c. Their being deceived. 2 Peter 2:19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.3. Their Damnation.a. Their return. 2 Peter 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.b. Their accountability. 2 Peter 2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.c. Their damnation. Matthew 7:21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? (23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Temple Baptist Church - 4-1-2018Mark 15:12-15, 33-47; 16:1-8Introduction: A. This morning is Resurrection Sunday. A day much revered among God's people. Our celebration of the glorious Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Capstone of Christianity; the completion of the glorious gospel of Christ, the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.Romans 1:4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:B. The Gospel defined: The word gospel means “good news” or “good tidings.” 1. The good news for a world dying in sin! 2. The good news that “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son!” 3. The good news that the sinful does not have to spend eternity in a devil's hell! 4. The good news that all has been done that is necessary for a sinner to be saved! 5. The good news that every sinner who ever lived could be saved!6. The good news that God's prepared heaven is now freely accessible to the both the greatest and the least of mankind!C. We just read very familiar verses of Scripture that define the gospel. Paul defined it in a shorter version in 1 Corinthians, chapter 15:1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; (2) By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. (3) For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins (death) according to the scriptures; (4) And that he was buried (burial), and that he rose again(resurrection) the third day according to the scriptures: D. In both the Books of 2 Corinthians and Galatians, we find the perverting of the gospel. In the First Century, as false teachers infiltrated the local churches and found willing followers, the gospel fell under attack. Satan hates the gospel! The gospel is God's power unto salvation to those who believe on Christ. E. This morning, I want to look at some aspects of the Gospel found in these verses of Scripture. 1. The Purity Of The Gospel - The Gospel Defined – vs. 3-4 Many do not understand the gospel and refer to themselves as “full gospel” by adding other things to Christ's death, burial, and resurrection. Galatians calls this is “another gospel which is not another!”a. Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures. (Involves the prophecies [such as not having a bone broken, etc.] doctrines of sin, Christ, and salvation.)b. Christ was buried. (Involves prophecies fulfilled such as that He made His grave with the rich.)c. Christ rose again the third day according to the scriptures. (A glorious bodily resurrection.)2. The Preaching Of The Gospel - The Gospel Delivered – vs. 1, 3 The gospel must be preached in all of its purity in order to be effective.a. The Gospel Daringly Declared – vs. 1 “declared” (Unashamedly and boldly preached.)b. The Gospel Dutifully Delivered – vs. 3 “delivered” (In fulfillment of the Great Commission, preached to every creature both at home and abroad.)3. The People Of The Gospel – The Gospel Desired – vs. 1 A realization that salvation is through Christ alone brings about two things.a. The Gospel Brings Conversion – vs. 1 “received” (A realization that works cannot obtain salvation.)b. The Gospel Brings Confidence – vs. 1 “stand” (A realization that works cannot maintain salvation.)4. The Power Of The Gospel – The Gospel Demonstrated - vs. 3-4 The Gospel message works as well today as it did two thousand years ago. It is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth. Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.a. The Power Of Propitiation – vs. 3 “Christ died” (For every man, woman, and child who ever has or ever will live.)b. The Power Of Salvation – vs. 3 “our sins” (For all of our sins, past, present, and future.)c. The Power Of Resurrection – vs. 4 “rose again” (Brings resurrection presently in holiness of life and then resurrection future into His eternal presence.)5. The Protection Of The Gospel – The Gospel Defended - vs. 2 The Gospel has always been under attack because it alone brings salvation. The Gospel was attacked through the denial of the resurrection of the Sadducees, those who religious zealots who crucified Christ, the soldiers who were to keep the tomb.a. Against Apostasy's Deviation – vs. 2 “keep in memory” (We live in days where the virgin birth, blood atonement, and other major gospel doctrines are under attack.)b. Against Apathy's Dereliction - vs. 2, 10 “believed in vain…I laboured” (If the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation [and it is] then we must be busy telling others the glorious news that Christ died for them and they can be eternally saved through trusting His finished work at Calvary.)
The Iranian Parliament voted on Tuesday in favour of a bill stipulating the death penalty for apostasy. The bill was approved by 196 votes for, seven against, and two abstentions.
Without international pressure there is little to stop the Iranian government from ratifying a bill that will make "apostasy," or leaving Islam, a capital crime, say human rights groups and experts.
Iran has reportedly released two Iranian Christians from Muslim backgrounds who could have received the death penalty on charges of apostasy, BosNewsLife monitored Wednesday, October 1.
