No wonder videos are so popular now. Half of Americans can’t read what I post, and can’t read a Bible!
50% of California Kids Can’t Read

The latest numbers from the California Department of Education tell a tragic tale. According to an analysis of the data by CALmatters, less than one fourth of black boys meet even the dumbed-down Common Core standards used by today’s government schools. More than half of them scored in the lowest possible category, suggesting they are unable to read even the most basic material.
Among Hispanic boys, less than a third met the dumbed-down government standards in English. And among whites, while the numbers are slightly better, more than 40 percent failed to meet even the basic standard. In every grade except 11th, less than 50 percent of students met the literacy standards, which again, are dumbed down to the extreme.
But the tragedy is hardly unique to California. In Washington, D.C., the nation’s capital, a stunning two thirds of residents over the age of 15 are functionally illiterate, according to a State Education Agency. Federal data shows more than half of Americans can barely read, or cannot read at all, scoring in the bottom two categories out of five.

Why don’t ‘Christian’ bookstores carry doctrinally biblical greeting cards, to help wake people up?
I was discussing ‘Christian’ greeting cards with a friend, who thought of this truthful, reality-check one [I changed in a lake of fire to at a lake of fire, because not all who go to hell end up in the actual lake of fire]:
“Your loved one is most likely at a lake of fire, because ‘strait is the gate, and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.’
Take this time of grief. Be thankful you still have time to be one of the few.”

Howard Pittman, after dying in the ambulance 30 years ago, saw how many people entered heaven, while he was told how many entered hell. And then he was told that if everyone died then, only 2.5% of the people would go to heaven. This figure is clearly lower today. Very few ‘Christians’ are actually abiding in Christ to the Biblically required degree.
Most don’t have clear consciences, so when they die and see Jesus face to Face they’ll have confidence to enter.
My article that no one can refute:
“Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT”
Paul in Acts 24:16:
“..I also practice always having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.”
Don’t do this. Serious false doctrine taught by Catholic, Zachary King!
“You need this consecration. You need to have Mary on your side. Everything you do at that point, Mary gives you grace for. … She wants to help you. … The rosary: #1 tool we have.” – Zachary King
4:00 Even pray for dead people to get converted.

Luke 20:46-47 Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts; which devour widows’ houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.

THE APOSTLES’ PREACHING VS TODAY’S PREACHING
Apostles: Repent and be baptized. Turn from your sins, but understand you will be persecuted for your faith. You may even go to prison or die for it. Also, this life is not about you focussed. Your prize is in heaven. Do not worry about having the finer things in life. Give all and follow the kingdom of God. Our Saviour showed us the example being born lowly and walking in humilty all his life even unto death.
Todays preachers: Close your eyes, bow your heads. Raise your hand to accept him. Say this quick prayer and now you’re a King’s kid. He wants you to have the best house best car, best of everything. If you suffer or in sickness you’re probably in sin or not in God’s will. We forgot to tell you Jesus suffered greatly; was born in a feeding trough and had no where to lay his head. … We also forgot to tell you the warnings the Word of God gives to those who pursue this world. Don’t worry, you wont hear hell or end-time judgment messages here. Our God is a big genie, and when you come to him he grants all your wishes.
This parody is much more real then we understand!

The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God; and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if indeed we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified with him.
Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, and whoever will lose his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his life? Or what will a man give in exchange for his life? For the Son of Man will come in the glory of his Father with his angels, and then he will render to everyone according to his deeds.”

This previous video by Jesse is also amazing, where he goes into this more. I transcribed many of his excellent, words, summarized here:
(vid) Jesse Lee Peterson w/ Stefan Molyneux: FORGIVE & BE FREE!! – “God has it set up so when you forgive He will forgive you and make you free! He will take the *spirit of anger* away from you and give you perfect peace” — When you fall away from the light with anger you fall into the darkness. Satan starts to work. You hear voices – yourself talking to you, telling you to do things. He leads you down the wrong path • A spirit made a home within you • Once you see that and forgive, in that very moment that spirit is taken away from you, and it’s as though you have never gone through anything. It doesn’t play over and over in your mind. Your soul is NOT FEELING THE PAIN of it anymore because it has reconnected to the Tree of Life • Drop the anger so you can overcome the voices of the deceiver • Return to the quiet, still voice of God, and you’ll be guided in the right way all the time • Perfect love makes you free, gives you authority over the enemy • Once you realize ‘IF I’M THIS WAY,’ then the person you’re mad at must not have been able… • This will help you to forgive others • Perfect love is the way to go! • The only thing that will SOOTH the SOUL is forgiveness
Jesse writes in his notes under this video (spell-checked by me):
You can change. There’s another reality within all of us: the kingdom of heaven within. The scripture says: Seek first the kingdom of God, and his right way, and all things will be added. You will have perfect peace, with no anger, and be free. You’ll deal with the world and overcome issues. There is a spiritual battle for control of your life — one of good (God within), and one from evil, from your father the Devil.
Most are in a fallen state, born into a messed up family, where fathers and mothers are not a living examples of what you need to watch and see — how to deal with life.
The voice of Satan in your head doesn’t want you to be still and discover the true God within. He’s constantly trying to deceive you, feed you doubt. Instead, practice doubting every thought, and believe in the Voiceless Voice, the revelation of God — bring every thought into captivity, because every thought is a lie, and you’re overreacting in darkness. After a while, you become mentally ill, psychotic, thinking of suicide, sick, out of it, angry, frustrated, fearful.
Before you enter, you must forgive.

Most Christians that I have ever met and talked to openly confess that they are sinners. They sin every day, so they say, and they have no problem with it because they THINK that Jesus’ salvation means just saving them from the consequence of their sins.
Jesus came to set sinners FREE FROM THEIR SINS. And if you don’t believe it you have believed the old devil’s lie. You CAN stop sinning if you want to stop sinning. Jesus came to set sinners free, and if you put your trust in Him, and if you start walking with Him, if you start following Him and obeying Him He will set you free from your sins.
The problem is most Christians LOVE their sinful life MORE than they love the light of Jesus Christ.
Are you ready to follow and obey Jesus and leave your sinful shameful life behind? Or have you bought the easy false gospel that says, if you just believe upon Jesus He will save you from the consequence of your wicked sinful life.
If you continue to sin you are NOT saved from your sins. If you continue to live wickedly, you will perish in your sins.
Repent of your sins today, follow Jesus, turn from sins or perish.
May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Sean’s father is Josh McDowell, the famous author, Christian apologist.
Mostly really good. But I’m not sure what Sean is getting at in his conclusion. I would say:
God works everything for good, Romans 8:28 only applies to real Christians (whom Paul described clearly in verses 1-17):
“We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose.”
And that doesn’t at all mean that God manipulates everything for those who really do follow Him. I believe that God is mostly hands off, allowing people to freely decide what they will do. Where He does intervene a lot is in the spirit world, where angels fight demons, often in response to Christians’ prayers. And God also empowers Christians to overcome sin, as the Holy Spirit leads those who follow Him.
God will sometimes clearly intervene, but this is rare, like with Saul on the road to Damascus, making him temporarily blind, which gave Saul some quality thinking time so he repented from persecuting the Christians, and then become Paul, one of the greatest Christians ever!
God really has given us free will, unlike some Calvinists who believe free will is only an illusion, because God controls everything everyone does in order to be able to predict the outcome. That is pure hogwash, but one of my seminary professors actually taught us that.
