Should a Christian Vote for a Mormon? Guest Ed Decker

The voters have some tough decisions coming up in this election. In this election we might have a Mormon as a front runner on the Republican side versus an incumbent pro-abortion President.

All mainstream Christian organizations have rejected the Mormons (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, LDS) as “brethren” in a spiritual sense (i.e., we do not believe they are part of the overall “Church” or Body of Christ). We do believe that Mormons are strictly outside the Christian Church. While the various denominations disagree on a wide variety of matters, the one thing that they do agree on is that the Mormon faith is not a saving Christian faith as described in the Bible. As with other non-Christian faiths and religions, like Islam, Buddhism, atheism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and many others, we are to love our Mormon brothers and sisters, but we need to keep in mind that when we are praying we are praying to different gods.

Tim’s guest Ed Decker has been witnessing to Mormons for decades through his “Saint’s Alive” Ministry. Tim and Ed compare Mormonism to true Christianity, and Tim asks Ed if he could vote for a Mormon for President of the USA, like Mitt Romney. Ed answers “Absolutely Not, unequivocally, without even blinking”. He says it is never going to be a choice between Romney and Obama, but suggests there are many people that a person could vote for or write-in instead of Romney or Obama, for example Herman Cain or your aunt.


God bless you,
Job.

Merry Christmas!

This year we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas with a collection of verses from our Bible Verse of the Day. Remember to “love the Lord thy God” every day throughout the year, just as we thank Him and praise Him this season for sending His Son Jesus to be born as our Saviour.

For those of you that may have dropped by and are searching for something, perhaps not even sure why you are here, or what you are searching for: the answer is God. He will talk to you for free, and gives great advice! Listen to His answers, and try to follow them. If you do not yet know Him, you start by confessing that you are a sinner, and that you would like to have your sins forgiven through His Son Jesus Christ, and that you would like to have a relationship with Him. You start that relationship by prayer, and reading the Bible, and going to a Bible believing Church. But you can start right now by prayer, and reading His Word:


6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

(Isaiah 9:6-7, KJV)


1And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
2And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
3And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:

(Isaiah 11:1-3, KJV)


But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

(Micah 5:2, KJV)


And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

(Zechariah 12:10, KJV)


10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

(Luke 2:10-14, KJV)


1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2The same was in the beginning with God.
3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

(John 1:1-4, KJV)


14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
15John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
16And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
17For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ

(John 1:14-17, KJV)



God bless you, and Merry Christmas,
Job.

Jesus and Tim in Las Vegas

Tim Berends has been on Christian radio for over 40 years, with a ministry that includes witnessing to Muslims in the mideast, witnessing to gangs, jail ministry, witnessing on the Vegas strip, and his live radio show “Jesus and Tim in Las Vegas”. Show topics frequently focus on essential Christian doctrine, with interviews covering topics like evangelism, world religions, doctrinal errors, and false Church and cult organizations like the Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses. Tim is also a good friend, and I write the commentaries for his shows and host his site to help lift his ministry.

Please note that the radio show is Tim’s separate ministry, and we add the usual disclaimers for external content: “We do not necessarily agree or disagree with the content, comments, viewpoints, or hair color of the links or other external content”. We encourage you to support Tim’s ministry directly, and listen to his weekly radio show on Christian radio KKVV in Las Vegas.

We will try to select the shows we feel might be most interesting to our readers, and post them on our front page at Christ.com. In the box below we have posted his show and notes from 8/13/11, in which a Director from the Voice of the Martyrs is interviewed:



blessings,
Job.

Happy Easter

We would like to pass on our prayers and blessings as we celebrate our Risen Saviour this day. This is a difficult time in our economy as we witness the destruction of our currency and severe inflation in food and energy. The Lord knows your needs, even before you ask, so keep this in mind when dealing with difficult times, and of course keep the faith.


6But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

7But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

8Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11Give us this day our daily bread.

12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

(Matthew 6:6-13, KJV)




Something to think about and pray over is that God the Father made an investment in YOU. He created you, and loves you so much that He sent His Son to the cross to pay for your sins. All He asks in return is that you put your faith and trust in Him alone, and build a relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. If you have not yet built that relationship, there is no better time to start than now. You can start right now by confessing your sins, and asking for His forgiveness, and getting to know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour. You cannot earn your own salvation by works, and you can never be “good enough” on your own merits to be saved. However, God the Father did make a way for you to be saved for free through the shed blood of His Son Jesus on Cross. Jesus paid a price for you on the Cross that you can never pay, and all He asks in return for this free gift is your faith in what He did for you. One of the best ways to start building that relationship is to get into a good Bible believing Church that trusts the Bible alone as the inerrant Word of God, and learn about what He did for you when He went to the cross.


He is Risen,
Job

Merry Christmas!

God bless all of you this Christmas! The Christmas season is the time we set aside for remembering the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. While it comes around only once per year, we need to be in fellowship with Him 365 days a year. There are some that only go to Church on Christmas and Easter, perhaps out of “tradition”, but a real relationship takes work, and time. Relationships are not about “things”, but about time spent with those we love, and about communication and sharing in the joys and pains we all have in life – and so it is with a relationship with God the Father and His Son Jesus. It takes time.


To grow in this relationship takes time and communication with God. So this season, take some time to pray and read God’s Word, the Bible. That is the way we communicate with Him, and He always blesses our attempts at building this relationship. So as you open your Christmas presents, take some time to give thanks to the Great Provider that makes all good things possible. The cost of this blessing is zero, and the benefit is eternal life. So how is that for a cost/benefit analysis!


1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2The same was in the beginning with God.

3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

(John 1:1-4, KJV)




Merry Christmas,
Job

Happy Thanksgiving!

As we gather together this Thanksgiving to celebrate with family and friends, it is important to take time out and pray over just what the holiday is about. The holiday is a special time where we thank the Lord for everything He has done in our lives, and of course thank Him for our very existence. God loved the world so much that He had His Son go to the cross to bring us into a relationship with Him.

Even though we may be personally and as a nation going through difficult times, there is so much to thank Him for that it is important to take time out to give thanks. Of course, we should also be giving thanks every day for the blessings of the Lord:


6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

(Phillippians 4:6-7, KJV)




6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

(Phillippians 4:6-7, NASB)


Perhaps some of you reading this are missing out on the “peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension”, or perhaps you, a friend, or a loved one do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. If that is the case, there is no better time to start on that road to peace than now! While there is no guarantee that you will not have problems in this life, what you are guaranteed is that you will find a kind of peace in troubled times that the ways of the world will never deliver. The best way to start down this road is to find a good Bible believing Church, and start attending, and spending time daily in God’s Word, the Bible.

God bless all of you this Thanksgiving,
Job

Moishe Rosen:
Jews for Jesus founder Now with the Lord

We extend our prayers to the families and friends of Moishe Rosen, the founder of Jews for Jesus, who went home to be with the Lord on May 19, 2010. He was loved by millions in his ministry efforts. The Jews for Jesus ministry is famous for reaching out to those still looking for the Messiah, and explaining in love that His return came in the form of Jesus, the Christ. I have supported this ministry in the past (Jews for Jesus), since I believed (and believe) in what they are doing: Bringing people to salvation, by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Moishe Rosen has brought many people into a personal saving relationship with Christ, and is now resting in peace with the Prince of Peace, the Messiah.


Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:

(Romans 9:27, KJV)


Isaiah cries out concerning Israel, “THOUGH THE NUMBER OF THE SONS OF ISRAEL BE LIKE THE SAND OF THE SEA, IT IS THE REMNANT THAT WILL BE SAVED;

(Romans 9:27, NASB)



28For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

29But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

(Romans 2:28-29, KJV)


28For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh.

29But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter; and his praise is not from men, but from God.

(Romans 2:28-29, NASB)






Psalms 122:6



Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and also pray that Israel comes to know the Lord in the same way that Moishe Rosen came to know the Lord, the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, the Son of God the Father. Moishe Rosen was circumcised in the heart, a part of the remnant Israel, and a mighty warrior in the Spiritual war for souls. Moishe Rosen is now with the Lord. Praise God.

in Him,
Job

Bad Congressman:
Bob Etheridge (Dem-NC)

Apparently some members of the Democrat party are feeling the heat of their bad decisions, and taking it out on anybody that questions what they view as divine wisdom. In the video below, one of the these self anointed wise men, Bob Etheridge (Democrat – North Carolina) of the U.S. Congress, physically attacks a college student for simply asking him a question. In every state in the union, this action by Mr. Etheridge (Democrat – North Carolina) would be an act of assault. Of course the laws don’t apply to liberals in the government the way they apply to normal citizens who, apparently, have no rights to ask a simple question of a Congressman (that supposedly works “We the People…”).

One of many excellent Bible passages that applies to this situation (bad Congressman Bob Etheridge) is Proverbs 16:18, which deals with issues of pride and haughtiness:

Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

(Proverbs 16:18, KJV)


Mr. Etheridge is regarded as one of the most arrogant and haughty members of the U.S. Congress. It is time to do a little House Cleaning this November and send this man and his worthless ideas from the Marxist/Socialist party packing. Given his recent behavior, it appears that a better place for Mr. Etheridge would be jail rather than the U.S. House of Representatives. Remember the college student was politely asking a question, and was subjected to the typical response of the party in power: “Who are YOU to question what I do?” The answer of course is that the college student was a member of the electorate, part of “We the People”.





This is the same behavior that has also been displayed more than a few times by Mr. Obama… A recent story published in the New York Times, famous for its ultra-liberal (pro-Marxist) views of the world, suggested that members of the Democrat party are now deliberately avoiding town halls and other means of speaking to citizens, to avoid heated questions and debate about their poor performance:




If the time-honored tradition of the political meeting is not quite dead, it seems to be teetering closer to extinction. Of the 255 Democrats who make up the majority in the House, only a handful held town-hall-style forums as legislators spent last week at home in their districts.


It was no scheduling accident.


With images of overheated, finger-waving crowds still seared into their minds from the discontent of last August, many Democrats heeded the advice of party leaders and tried to avoid unscripted question-and-answer sessions. The recommendations were clear: hold events in controlled settings — a bank or credit union, for example — or tour local businesses or participate in community service projects.

Full Article:
NY Times: Democrats Skip Town Halls to Avoid Voter Rage



It is time to send a message to the U.S. Congress in general, and Mr. Etheridge in particular, that our elected representatives are there to serve us, not to be served. When elected representatives like Mr. Etheridge no longer represent the will of the people, and treat the voting populace with outright arrogance and hostility, it is time to vote them out of office!

Why do these political issues matter to Christians? Because the current party in power has been destroying the very freedoms and economy that made our nation great, and that gave us an environment where Christianity can flourish.

Blessings,
Job.

Blessed is He Who Comes in the Name of the LORD!

Happy Palm Sunday! This might be a good time to ask a friend to join you for Church services next week. Some of you may have not been to a Church service in years, so this might be a great opportunity to renew your faith and build on your relationship with God the Father, and His Son Jesus Christ:


23Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

24And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

25Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

(Hebrews 10:23-25, KJV)



God sent His Son to the Cross to bring you into a relationship with Him, and that takes time – time in the form of prayer, worship, Bible study, and fellowship with other believers. Make it a point to build on this relationship, and continue in your spiritual growth throughout the year.


1And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,

2Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.

3And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.

4All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,

5Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

6And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,

7And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.

8And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.

9And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

(Matthew 21:1-9, KJV)



Palm Sunday Blessings to All of YOU,
Job.

Laughter Doeth Good Like A Medicine

While the problems in the economy are serious, it is frequently good to step back and take a good look and laugh at the socialist takeover of all things economic… a system that has failed everywhere it has been tried. A friend sent this YouTube video to me, and it is good for a laugh. The person doing the video has a long history of Clean Comedy, with his act starting in the Churches. From his Bio: “His art form was honed primarily in churches, with a brief 6-month stint performing in prisons as part of Chuck Colson’s Prison Fellowship.” Clean comedy is an “endangered species” in this fallen world, so this is worth a look.






OK, maybe a bit political, but if you have been watching for the last 14 years, this is a Christian Conservative website. Tim’s website is at www.TimHawkins.net. There are a few (ahem… very few) Clean Christian Comedians left, so this one is worth a look.

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine

(Proverbs 17:22a, KJV)




Yours in Christ,
Job.
