First Plumbline Apologetics

FIRST PLUMBLINE APOLOGETICS

There are a growing number of problems in the churches especially when it comes down to heretical teachings. Please note that this site is to open your eyes and explain where and how that doctrines of antichrist are appearing in the churches. Occult practices are being introduced and, as a result, people are blinded to the truth, knowledge and love of God in the name of Christ Jesus our Lord and God. This site is simply to promote truth and not to purposely offend people. There is too much emphasis on "Spiritual Experiences" in churches and not enough on the doctrines of Christ Jesus. The links to the left are to expose heretics and false teachings, to use as educational tools for you so that the light and truth of Jesus denounces the devil's work in churches Also included are testimonies of people and their faith in God. Proverbs 27:6 Faithful [are] the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy [are] deceitful.

On Theosis, Or Divinization - What does it mean to be "partakers of the divine nature"?
by Pastor Larry DeBruyn, 2/26/11Discernment Ministries
   
If biblical precedent exists for attaining unto divinity, "The only biblical text which seems to bear directly on deification is II Peter 1:4, where the destiny of Christian believers is described as becoming 'partakers of the divine nature'."[1] So the question becomes, does Peter's reference to partaking of the divine nature support the teaching that in this life a Christian can become deified; that a Christian, as defined by the Orthodox Church, can become subjected to "God's full and perfect penetration . . . in which [state of being] the operations and energies of human nature cease, having been replaced by the Divine Operations and Energies."[2] On the face of it, Peter appears to be teaching the possibility of personal divinization, but upon a deeper investigation of the text, he is not.

"Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the Faith"

by Sandy Simpson, ACT, 3/3/11ACT Logo 2

 

2 Cor. 13:5  Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves.
Do you not realise that Christ Jesus is in you- unless, of course, you fail the test?

 

People who call themselves followers of Christ or "Christians" and claim they are born again must believe certain things.  If they do not then they fail the test of faith.  They can claim they are born again all they want and "once saved, always saved" but if they fail the test of faith there is no eternal security.  Only God knows who will be saved, from beginning to end, because of His foreknowledge and omniscience (Rom. 8:29, 1 Pet. 1:2).  God did not make an arbitrary judgment about who would be saved and who would not.  His Spirit is given to those He foreknew, when convicted of sin by His Holy Spirit, would choose to believe and commit themselves to Jesus Christ.  We are not God and we do not have His omniscience.  Therefore, according to Paul, we must be sure our belief system is in the right place once our eyes have been opened to the Truth.  I am not saying we do not have assurance of salvation, but our assurance comes not only because of His Atonement and promises of salvation but from our continuing in the Faith, which is always the Biblical criteria. Those who would be Bible teachers must teach according to the whole counsel of God's Word.

 

Let me be clear.  There is only one way to salvation.  That is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.  I will deal with a few of those issues following, but it is important to recognize that being saved is not just a matter of believing that Jesus lived, or that He was a man, or simply giving mental ascent to His existence in whatever form.  The Bible gives this as the only criteria to be saved:

Ac 16:31  31  And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. (KJV)
