What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
Romans chapter 10 begins, “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.” And it goes on to detail exactly how the Jew and the Gentile must submit themselves unto the righteousness of God by faith, “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth” (vr.4). This epistle was written to the Romans, and yet it was the church at Rome that became the stronghold of Satan and ended in the situation that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. Ergo the Pope is NOT Christian, and Protestants did not protest enough. Jews persecuted the church, but not to the extent that Rome did, and both pale before the persecutions of the “Holy” Roman Catholic Church. In the 16th century Martin Luther was dutifully applying the Roman Catholic allegorical method to Romans 1:16-17 when he protested, but America was founded because of the persecutions of Luther, Zwingly, Knox and Calvin. These men left Rome but carried Rome's Replacement Theology, persecution complex, and hatred of God's chosen nation Israel. Contrast that with the first verses of Romans 10 (or 9 or 11) and the true believer can see the ugly irony. Baptists are not Protestants, do not baptize babies, replace Israel, persecute others, or salute John Calvin. Nor dare they hobnob with ecumenical counsels that print modernist bibles and tolerate such failed doctrine. Romans 10:9-13 is the hallmark for submitting yourself unto the righteousness of God by faith; there is no penance, there is no election, and there is a “whosoever.” Many church signs need “Baptist” painted over if they will not take hold of these truths.
