Jehovah`s Witness/Baptist Minister exposes Holland Hyprocisy.
I was reading the forum ans saw on Holland's Forum that his questioner was on the Baptist Forum asking a question that exposes false message of a heavenly salvation for the servants of God in the Old Testament.
Dr Don Howe, RN, PhD, ThD writes: "Marie, salvation is by accepting the Lord Jesus as Lord and Saviour plan simple.
It has nothing to do with one is good and earning one's way to Heaven. So Baptist do not believe “only bad people go to Hell.” Romans 3:23 states “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” This includes all people good or bad.
We can not earn our Salvation. Point to remember: Good people go to HELL, but ONLY BORN AGAIN PEOPLE SAVED BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB GO TO HEAVEN. Plain and simple. We can EARN our SALVATION BY BEING GOOD." http://en.allexperts.com/q/Baptists-954/2015/2/baptists-hell.htm
Again, he writes "ONLY BORN AGAIN PEOPLE SAVED BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB GO TO HEAVEN" and also states "We can EARN our SALVATION BY BEING GOOD."
Why the contradiction, being good gets you to heaven even though you don't have faith in the shed blood of Jesus as Holland says?
However Derrick Holland claims you don't have to be BORN AGAIN PEOPLE SAVED BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB GO TO HEAVEN. Just be a servant of God.
My question: How can Abel be in heaven if he never accepted Jesus Chrsit as his Lord and Savior and was not born again and displayed faith in the the shed blood of Jesus Christ? HOW?? Isn't the Biblical Answer a Resurrection?? Aren't the dead resurrected?
Thanks for writing.
Indeed, the short and only answer for those who died before Christ is RESURRECTION. The same goes with those who died AFTER Jesus death and resurrection, that is those whose hopes are to live in a Paradise earth.
Resurrection is the hope of millions and millions of people who died, NOT heaven. As the Scripture tells us only a "little flock" are taken to heaven to be with Jesus Christ. Thier number according to Rev 14 is 144,000.
““Have no fear, little flock, for your Father has approved of giving you the Kingdom.” (Luke 12:32)
““Do not let your hearts be troubled. Exercise faith in God; exercise faith also in me. 2 In the house of my Father are many dwelling places. Otherwise, I would have told you, for I am going my way to prepare a place for you. 3 Also, if I go my way and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will receive you home to myself, so that where I am you also may be.” (John 14:1-3)
“Then I saw, and look! the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who have his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads.” (Revelation 14:1)
“These are the ones who did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins. These are the ones who keep following the Lamb no matter where he goes. These were bought from among mankind as firstfruits to God and to the Lamb, 5 and no deceit was found in their mouths; they are without blemish.” (Revelation 14:4, 5)
As for false religion's confusing and contradictory doctrines, what can I say?
Unless they listen to us, they are truly lost along with those who support them.
Just think about this Brother. They claim they are going to heaven, yet when asked what is Jesus Christ's Fathers name?
Silence! Their answer if given, is a constipated one. As if it's being force out of them. LOL!!!
So how can they go to heaven if they don't know God's name, they don't even recognize his name as Jehovah - like we do. They protest about the name Jehovah! They say it's a made up name thus it can't be used and blah blah blah. So what did they do? Removed it from from their Bibles and replaced it with LORD.
How sad is that if not pathetic? Removing God's name.
If they truly know and love God's name why don't they put it back in their Bibles?
They can protest all they want about God's name, unless they restore it back to its proper place, they will be inline with those whom Jesus called "workers of lawlessness".
As he said:
“Not everyone saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of the heavens, but only the one doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens will. 22 Many will say to me in that day: ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them: ‘I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!’” (Matthew 7:21-23)
Removing God's name from his own written word - the Bible is one of the biggest if not one the greatest crimes committed against God. It's an affront to His sovereignty!
Yet Jesus said, that those who know him know also his Father and God.
“I am the fine shepherd. I know my sheep and my sheep know me, 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I surrender my life in behalf of the sheep.” (John 10:14, 15)
“6 “I have made your name manifest to the men whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours, and you gave them to me, and they have observed your word.” (John 17:6)
“24 Father, I want those whom you have given me to be with me where I am, in order that they may look upon my glory that you have given me, because you loved me before the founding of the world. 25 Righteous Father, the world has, indeed, not come to know you, but I know you, and these have come to know that you sent me. 26 I have made your name known to them and will make it known, so that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in union with them.”” (John 17:24-26)
Truly, is a case of blind leading the blind when it comes to those claiming to be Born-Again followers of the Lord Christ.
Write again Brother.
