A timely Message from Good Samaritan Baptist Church
The Pope and priests say "call me father." But Jesus said in the Bible "But be ye not called Rabbi: for one is your master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. An call no man your father upon the earth; for one is your father, which is in heaven." (Matt 23:8-9)
The Pope and priests say "Pray to Mary, pray to Saint Peter, Pray to Saint Jude." But Jesus said in the Bible "Be not ye therefore like unto them . . . After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven Hallowed be thy name. (Matt 6:8-9)
The Pope and priests say "bow and pray before these statues and images." But God said in the Bible "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in earth beneath, . . . Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God," (Exod 20:4-5)
The Pope and Priests say that "Mother Mary can intercede for you." But Jesus said in the Bible "I am the way the truth and the life: no man cometh to the father, but by me" (John 14:6) And the Apostle Paul wrote in the Bible "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; who gave himself a ransom for all." (ITim2:5-6)
The Pope and Priests say that they can get your sins forgiven and can save you from sins penalty. But the Bible says "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved . . . . For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved ." (Rom 10:9,13)
You could be converted from the Sacramental system of Catholicism
and saved from your sin by calling on Jesus Christ today. "Except ye be converted
. . . Ye cannot enter the kingdom of heaven." (Matt 18:3)
The JW-Russelites say that there is no Trinity and that Jesus Christ was not God, but the Bible says that the Christ shall be called "Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)
The JW-Russellites say that Jesus was a god not The God, but the Bible says "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:1) it says "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." (Gen 1:1) And " All things were made by him (Jesus Christ) and without him was not anything that was made." (John 1:3)
The JW-Russelites say that Jesus Christ was not Jehovah God, but Jesus said in the Bible "I and the Father are one" (John 10:30)
The JW-Russelites say that there is no Hell or Lake of Fire but the Bible says "the rich man also died and in hell he lifted up his eyes, being in torments" (Luk 16:22-23) "For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains." (Deut 32:22) "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire ." (Rev 20:14-15)
The JW-Russelites say that only their best workers will be part of the 144 thousand witnesses who get to heaven, the rest stay here on the earth. But Jesus Christ said the 144 thousand will be virgin male Jews (rev 14:3-5) and that "The Lord (Jesus Christ) himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God" and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with him in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." (1Thes4:16-17)
The JW-Russelites said that Jesus would return in 1914, then in 1921, now they say that he did return in 1914 he was just invisible! The Bible says "every eye shall see him."

The Mormon-Smithites say that God the Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as mans, But the Bible saya "God is Spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth" (John 4:24)
Mormon-Smithites say that Joseph Smith saw an angel of light in 1820 and received the book of Mormon which they esteem above the Holy Bible. But in the Bible the Apostles said "But though we or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than ye have received, let him be accursed." (Gal 1:8-9) And at the close of the writing of the whole New Testament the last living Apostles, John, wrote, "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of this prophecy of this book If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:" (Rev 22:18)
Mormon-Smithites say that God is using apostles, prophets, visions and tongues to reveal new truths in these last 200 years (Although he did not 1700 year previous) But the Bible teaches that there were only 12 apostles with no apostolic succession. The Bible says "Wither there be prophecies they shall fail, whether there be tongues, they shall cease. " (II Cor 13:8)
Mormon-Smithites say that American Indians are a lost tribe of Jews, and Christ will set up his throne on this continent. DNA says they are Mongolian and that Joseph Smith lies through his teeth.
Mormon-Smithites say Christ will gather the 10 lost tribes on American soil and rule and rein in the Earth from the USA. But God says in the Bible "For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually." (II Chron 7:16)
Morman-Smithites say men will be as gods and women will be perpetually pregnant for all eternity. But the Bible says. "24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven. (Mark 12:24-25) "26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus." (Gal 3:26-27)
Morman-Smithites say that keeping the law and wearing sacred underwear assures ones salvation & sanctification for eternity. But the Bible says "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." (John 3:3)
"Except ye be converted, . . . , ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Matt 18:3) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Rom 10:13)
The SDA's say we should keep the Old Testament Sabbath and meet on Saturdays. But under the New Testament, under Christ's new covenant the apostles met and worshiped on resurrection day, the Lord's day, the 8th day, if you would, a day that marks a new beginning, a new week, a new covenant. "I (John) was in the Spirit on the Lord's day" (Rev 1:10): NOT on the Sabbath day. The Bible says "And on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread (communion), Paul preached unto them." (Acts 20:7) also Paul says "Upon the first day of the week (when you take up your collection in your worship service) let every one of you"...give. (1Cor 16:1-2)
The SDA's say that the Sabbath is "a symbol of our redemption in Christ and a sign of our sanctification, and a token of our allegiance" but in the Bible the Lord's day is the 1st day of the week, is resurrection day, is the symbol of our redemption. It was on the Lord's day, under the new covenant that Jesus met with his disciples (John 20:19) and never on the Sabbath day, it was on the Lord's day that he poured out his Spirit on Pentecost (Acts 2) and it was on the Lord's day that the apostles and disciples met to worship for the first 100 years as well as Christians for the past 1900 years.
The SDA's say that 1844 marks a phase change in God's dealing with man and that he has been using the last 159 years to try and figure out who is saved and who is lost. This idea springs from their woman founder and prophet Ellen G. White (1827-1915) This and other absurd teachings about remnants and prophecy make SDA's similar to many other cults that mark their beginnings during this era of a new century and great apostasy (i.e. JW-Russelites, Mormon-Joseph Smithites and SDA-Ellenites, share equally in twisting scriptures and misrepresenting prophecy during this turn of the century)
The SDA-Ellenites have twisted the 2nd advent (coming) of Christ because they deny any place for Israel in God's prophetic future. For the SDA there is no throne of David occupied by Christ, no millennial reign of Christ here on this earth, no 12 tribe witnessing remnant during a 7 year tribulation. All these are clearly found in the dispensational teachings of the Bible which they deny, all these are clear doctrines of Baptists.
Although the SDA-Ellenites' lips "drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil, . . . Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house." (Prov 5:3-8) She is a strange woman who showed her ugly head through her founder Ellen G. White. SDA's do not try to win the lost to Christ, they try to steal the saved into their false teachings, come not nigh the door of her house.
The Charismatic, Hin, Swaggert and Baker, say we should let the spirit unite us and not let doctrine divide us. But Jesus says "Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: (Luke 12:51)
The Charismatic, Hin, Swaggert and Baker, teach prosperity gospel where in this world, you can name it and claim it, blab it and grab it, But Jesus in the Bible "I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world." (John 17:14) "If the world hate you , ye know that it hated me before it hated you." (John 15:18) "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution ." (II Tim 3:12)
The Charismatic, Hin, Swaggert and Baker, say that God is using apostles, prophets, visions and tongues in these last 100 years (Although he did not 1800 years previous) But the Bible teaches there were only 12 apostles with no apostolic succession. The Bible says "whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease;" (I Cor 13:8)
The Charismatic, Hin, Swaggert and Baker, say that what the spirit reveals to them is more important that what the Word of God says. They smite with a spirit, they howl like dogs and call hilarious laughter their praise. But the Bible says "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by Every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." (Matt 4:4) But they like the Athenians of Acts 17 "bringest certain strange things to our ears." They "spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell or to hear some new thing." God's Word says "Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls". . . . But they said "We will not walk therein." (Jer 6:16)
Baptists use God's word for all faith and practice. When some latter day prophet or apostle says they went to heaven and saw a 500 foot Jesus of that Jesus returned in 1914, we Baptists call them false teachers and study the true doctrines of the apostles found in God's Holy Word. In God's word there is no smiting with the spirit. It in good show but bad doctrine.
