Evangelism and the Filthy Watering Hole (via Pastor Dave Online)

This is the Real Christianity ..The hate for Non Christians…The Blunt truth


(i) Non-believers fit to be burnt in fire

Jesus says in New Testament “He who does not seek shelter in me, will be thrown like a withered branch of tree fit to be burnt in fire.”

187. “6. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.”

– John, 15/6
Is it not fundamental right of man to have freedom of worship ? If it is so, why fire for him who does not seek shelter in Christ ? Will the Christian members of Human Rights Commission agree to the afore-mentioned declaration of Jesus Christ ?

James Madison, the fourth President of U.S.A., opines candidly :

“What have been Christianity’s fruits ? Superstition, bigotry and persecution.”105

– James Madison
(ii) Christ’s doctrine of damnation for disbelievers
Are there holy persons only among Christians ? Are there no noble persons among non-Christians ? Is it fair to say that only Christians deserve salvation, while others, who do not believe in tenets of Christianity, deserve damnation ? Here is the declaration of Christ in the New Testament :

188. “16. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”

– Mark, 16/16
189. “33. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?”

– Matthew, 23/33
Thus Jesus Christ prescribes damnation i.e. hell for non-believers. Is it not vindictive fury against those who did not listen to his preaching ? Bertrand Russell, the renowned philosopher, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1950, opines :

“There is one very serious defect to my mind in Christ’s moral character, and that is that He believed in hell. I do not myself feel that any person who is really profoundly humane can believe in everlasting punishment. Christ certainly as depicted in the Gospels did believe in everlasting punishment, and one does find repeatedly a vindictive fury against those people who would not listen to His preaching.”106

– Bertrand Russell
Bertrand Russell goes to the extent of doubting the existence of Jesus Christ. He writes :
“Historically it is quite doubtful whether Christ ever existed at all, and if He did we do not know anything about Him,……”107

– Bertrand Russell
There are good as well as bad persons in all communities. Will bad-charactered vicious persons, who believe in the tenets of Christianity, also attain salvation ? Will good-charactered virtuous persons, who do not believe in Christian dogmas, be damned for ever ? You will be utterly astonished to read what Martin Luther, (c-1483-1546), the German religious reformer who was the founder of the Protestant Reformation, observed in ‘Table Talk’ in this connection. He says :

“He that says the gospel requires work for salvation, I say flat and plain he is a liar. If men only believe enough in Christ, they can commit adultery, and murder a thousand times a day without periling their salvation.”108

– Martin Luther
It is a matter of immense astonishment and agony that in spite of afore-mentioned quotations, Christian missionaries do not believe that ‘all religions lead to the same goal’ or ‘all religions are true’. They believe that only their religion is true, while other religions are false.

(iii) Salvation is possible only through Christ

One finds monopoly of salvation in Holy Bible. Jesus Christ declares in the New Testament that only he, none else, is the door through which one can enter the kingdom of God. He goes to the extent of saying that those (prophets) who came before him were thieves and robbers. Read the following seven verses :

190. “7. Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.”
– John, 10/7
191. “8. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not hear them.”

– John, 10/8
192. “9. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and rind pasture.”

– John, 10/9
193. “6. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

– John, 14/6
194. “25. Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life; he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:”

– John, 11/25
195. “26. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die, Believest thou this?”

– John, 11/26
196. “30. He that is not with me is against me.”

– Matthew, 12/30

Evangelism and the Filthy Watering Hole It was one of the filthiest watering holes I had ever seen (not that I've seen many). Trash collected in piles along the banks, and the water foamed in some spots incessantly. Yet despite these facts, it was the swimming pool for many a young kid in this Alabama town. We had invited them to the public pool to swim with us but the reality was that most of them not only didn't have the money to pay the entrance fee, but some of them didn't even hav … Read More
