					          Judgment

How G-d will judge!
                Christians say…
    Accept Jesus!
    From where did they get that?
    They will tell you
        John 14:6
        Acts 4:12
        John 3:16

Attempting to justify a doctrinal position
that is just wrong!
                    John 14:1-9
   “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God,
    believe also in Me. “In My Father’s house are many
    dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you;
    for I go to prepare a place for you. “If I go and prepare a
    place for you, I will come again and receive you to
    Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. And you
    know the way where I am going.” Thomas said to Him,
    “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we
    know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and
    the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but
    through Me. If you had known Me, you would have
    known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and
    have seen Him.” Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the
    Father, and it is enough for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have
    I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to
    know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the
    Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
                   Acts 4:8-12
   Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them,
    "Rulers and elders of the people, if we are on trial
    today for a benefit done to a sick man, as to how
    this man has been made well, let it be known to all
    of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the
    name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you
    crucified, whom God raised from the dead— by this
    name this man stands here before you in good
    health. He is the STONE WHICH WAS REJECTED by
    you, THE BUILDERS, but WHICH BECAME THE
    CHIEF CORNER stone. "And there is salvation in no
    one else; for there is no other name under heaven
    that has been given among men by which we must
    be saved."
                  John 3:14-20
   As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even
    so must the Son of Man be lifted up; so that whoever
    believes will in Him have eternal life. For God so loved
    the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that
    whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have
    eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the
    world to judge the world, but that the world might be
    saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not
    judged; he who does not believe has been judged
    already, because he has not believed in the name of
    the only begotten Son of God. This is the judgment,
    that the Light has come into the world, and men loved
    the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were
    evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and
    does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will
    be exposed.
Church Fathers - Ignatius ~110 A.D.
   “Let no man deceive himself. Unless he believes that
    Christ Jesus has lived in the flesh, and shall confess
    His cross and passion, and the blood which He shed
    for the salvation of the world, he shall not obtain
    eternal life, whether he be a king, or a priest, or a
    ruler, or a private person, a master or a servant, a
    man or a woman.”
   “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the
    spirits to see whether they are from God, because
    many false prophets have gone out into the world. By
    this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that
    confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is
    from God…” 1 John 4:1-2
Church Fathers - Cyprian ~250 A.D.
   “Whoever he may be, and whatever he
    may be, he who is not in the church of
    Christ is not a Christian.”
   …“there is no salvation out of the church.”
            Constantine the Great
             325 A.D. Council of Nicea
   Declared Christianity the official religion of the
    Roman Empire
   Marched his army into the Mediterranean Sea
    for all to be baptized
   Adapted Christianity to Roman Culture
                      Mithra
   The Mithraic Mysteries were a mystery religion
    practiced in the Roman Empire from about the
    first through fourth centuries A.D. The name of
    the Persian god Mithra, adapted into Greek as
    Mithras, was linked to a new and distinctive
    imagery. Romans also called the religion
    Mysteries of Mithras or Mysteries of the
    Persians; modern historians refer to it as
    Mithraism, or sometimes Roman Mithraism. The
    Romans themselves regarded the mysteries as
    having Persian or Zoroastrian sources.
      Mithra – a.k.a. Sol Invictus
   Unconquerable sun (Sun god –
    worshipped on Sun ”day”)
   Son of Apollo (light, youth, beauty &
    prophecy
   Born on the 25th of December
   The Judger of souls – referred to as the
    “light of the world”
   Born of a virgin who was called the
    mother of god
              Constantine and “Sol”
   When Constantine
    converted to Christianity,
    he outlawed Mithraism.
    But a few Zoroastrians
    still exist today in India,
    and the Mithraic holidays
    were celebrated in Iran
    until the Ayatollah came
    into power. And, of
    course, Mithraism
    survives more subtly in
    various European --
    even Christian --
    traditions.

              In Mithraism…
   the son is very angry because of the
    disobedience of his followers.
   the mother intercedes on behalf of the
    followers and petitions mercy from the son.

             In Catholicism…
   the son is very angry because of the
    disobedience of his followers.
   the mother intercedes on behalf of the
    followers and petitions mercy from the son.
        This attitude continues to
        prevail in all Christianity!
   “… for I was afraid of you, because you
    are an exacting man; you take up what
    you did not lay down and reap what you
    did not sow.” Luke 19:21
    Church Fathers - “Saint” Augustine
             354 – 430 A.D.
   The Total Depravity of Man
       Total depravity is the fallen state of man as a result of
        original sin. The doctrine of total depravity asserts that
        people are by nature not inclined or even able to love God
        wholly with heart, mind, and strength, but rather all are
        inclined by nature to serve their own will and desires and
        to reject the rule of God. Even religion and philanthropy
        are wicked to God to the extent that these originate from
        a human imagination, passion, and will, and are not done
        to the glory of God. Therefore, in Reformed theology, if
        God is to save anyone He must predestine, call, elect
        individuals to salvation since fallen man does not want to,
        indeed is incapable of choosing God.
    Catholic (Universal) Doctrine
   Excommunication (weapon of CONTROL)
       Based on Romans 16:17
            Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those
             who cause dissensions and hindrances contrary to
             the teaching which you learned, and turn away
             from them.
       but includes spiritual condemnation of the
        member or group;
       i.e. out of the church - you’re going to hell!
              Three witnesses
   “If your brother sins, go and show him his fault
    in private; if he listens to you, you have won
    your brother. But if he does not listen to you,
    take one or two more with you, so that BY THE
    MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES EVERY
    FACT MAY BE CONFIRMED. If he refuses to
    listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he
    refuses to listen even to the church, let him be
    to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.”
    Matthew 18:15-17
              Three witnesses
   “If anyone kills a person, the murderer
    shall be put to death at the evidence of
    witnesses, but no person shall be put to
    death on the testimony of one witness.”
    Numbers 35:30
   “On the evidence of two witnesses or
    three witnesses, he who is to die shall be
    put to death; he shall not be put to death
    on the evidence of one witness.”
    Deuteronomy 17:6
                  Three witnesses
   “A single witness shall not rise up against
    a man on account of any iniquity or sin
    which he has committed; on the evidence
    of two or three witnesses a matter shall
    be confirmed.”
    Deuteronomy 19:15
   God established His covenant with Israel
    in the face of three witnesses:
       Abraham
       Isaac
       Jacob
                  Moses
Then Moses returned to the LORD, and said,
“Alas, this people has committed a great sin,
and they have made a god of gold for
themselves. But now, if You will, forgive their
sin—and if not, please blot me out from Your
book which You have written!” The LORD said to
Moses, “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will
blot him out of My book.”
Exodus 32:31-33
                 Ezekiel
“When a righteous man turns away from his
righteousness, commits iniquity and dies because
of it, for his iniquity which he has committed he
will die. Again, when a wicked man turns away
from his wickedness which he has committed and
practices justice and righteousness, he will save
his life. Because he considered and turned away
from all his transgressions which he had
committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die.
But the house of Israel says, ‘The way of the Lord
is not right.’ Are My ways not right, O house of
Israel? Is it not your ways that are not right?
Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, each
according to his conduct,” declares the Lord GOD.
                   Ezekiel
“Repent and turn away from all your
transgressions, so that iniquity may not become a
stumbling block to you. Cast away from you all
your transgressions which you have committed and
make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit! For
why will you die, O house of Israel? For I have no
pleasure in the death of anyone who dies,” declares
the Lord GOD. “Therefore, repent and live.”
Ezekiel 18:26-32
               Yeshua, or Jesus
   “For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory
    of His Father with His angels, and WILL THEN
    REPAY EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS.”
    Matthew 16:27
   “Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in
    which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice,
    and will come forth; those who did the good
    deeds to a resurrection of life, those who
    committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of
    judgment.” John 5:28-29
              The Apostle Paul
   “But because of your stubbornness and
    unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for
    yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the
    righteous judgment of God, who WILL RENDER
    TO EACH PERSON ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS: to
    those who by perseverance in doing good seek
    for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life;
    but to those who are selfishly ambitious and do
    not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness,
    wrath and indignation. There will be tribulation
    and distress for every soul of man who does evil,
    of the Jew first and also of the Greek, but glory
    and honor and peace to everyone who does good,
    to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” Romans 2:5-10
             The Apostle Paul
   “For we must all appear before the judgment
    seat of Christ, so that each one may be
    recompensed for his deeds in the body,
    according to what he has done, whether good or
    bad.” 2 Corinthians 5:10
             The Apostle John

   “And I saw the dead, the great and the small,
    standing before the throne, and books were
    opened; and another book was opened, which is
    the book of life; and the dead were judged from
    the things which were written in the books,
    according to their deeds. And the sea gave up
    the dead which were in it, and death and Hades
    gave up the dead which were in them; and they
    were judged, every one of them according to
    their deeds.” Revelation 20:12-13
          Back to John 3:17-20
   “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge
    the world, but that the world might be saved through
    Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who
    does not believe has been judged already, because he
    has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son
    of God. This is the judgment, that the Light has come
    into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than
    the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who
    does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the
    Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.”
 Who are these that rejected the Light?




Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, He
Was asking His disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?
And they said, “Some say John the Baptist; and others, Elijah;
but still others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.” He said to
them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered,
“You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus said
to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and
blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in
heaven.” Matthew 16:13-17
Who are these that rejected the light?
   “For it is just like a man about to go on a journey,
    who called his own slaves and entrusted his
    possessions to them. To one he gave five talents, to
    another, two, and to another, one, each according to
    his own ability; and he went on his journey.
    Immediately the one who had received the five
    talents went and traded with them, and gained five
    more talents. In the same manner the one who had
    received the two talents gained two more. But he
    who received the one talent went away, and dug a
    hole in the ground and hid his master's money. Now
    after a long time the master of those slaves came and
    settled accounts with them.
Who are these that rejected the light?
  The one who had received the five talents came up
  and brought five more talents, saying, 'Master, you
  entrusted five talents to me. See, I have gained five
  more talents.' His master said to him, 'Well done,
  good and faithful slave. You were faithful with a few
  things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter
  into the joy of your master.' Also the one who had
  received the two talents came up and said, 'Master,
  you entrusted two talents to me. See, I have gained
  two more talents.' "His master said to him, 'Well
  done, good and faithful slave. You were faithful with a
  few things, I will put you in charge of many things;
  enter into the joy of your master.'
Who are these that rejected the light?
  And the one also who had received the one talent came
  up and said, 'Master, I knew you to be a hard man,
  reaping where you did not sow and gathering where
  you scattered no seed. And I was afraid, and went
  away and hid your talent in the ground. See, you have
  what is yours. But his master answered and said to
  him, 'You wicked, lazy slave, you knew that I reap
  where I did not sow and gather where I scattered no
  seed. 'Then you ought to have put my money in the
  bank, and on my arrival I would have received my
  money back with interest. 'Therefore take away the
  talent from him, and give it to the one who has the ten
  talents.'
Who are these that rejected the light?
  For to everyone who has, more shall be given, and he
  will have an abundance; but from the one who does
  not have, even what he does have shall be taken away.
  Throw out the worthless slave into the outer darkness;
  in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of
  teeth. But when the Son of Man comes in His glory,
  and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His
  glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before
  Him; and He will separate them from one another, as
  the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats …”
  Matthew 25:14-32
                      In Summary
   God is not like a person that He should require
    the recognition of His deeds.
   for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF
    THE LORD WILL BE SAVED." Romans 10:13
   Each person who is redeemed has the same
    confession as Abraham: “God will provide for
    Himself the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.”
    Genesis 22:8
       ‘Whatever it is that is required for my justification, I
        can trust God that He will provide it.’
             Those who remain in
             “Christian” thought …
   may not be elect to this purpose/function.
   are potentially rejecting light.
   cannot help but to try to convert Jews.

    “It’s only a matter of time before those who maintain
    current “Christian” doctrinal positions just can’t stand
    it any more and have to attempt to convert those poor,
    damned, lost souls who haven’t received “Christ,”
    (i.e. the Jews) to Christianity.” Pastor Ken Garrison
