The Heathen Cannot Censor God

Romans 1:28-32, “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

The ungodly world are trying to censor God. We speak out against the evils of abortion, homosexuality and the LGBTQ agenda. For doing that we have been woefully censored by big tech companies today. But rejoice oh Christian, because the battle has already been won by Jesus Christ. Romans 8:37, “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

Case in point is that this brief excerpt from Pastor Steven Anderson was removed by YouTube from my channel, which is ridiculous (I saved it as an MP4). They hate Pastor Anderson so much that he is not allowed to speak any words without being censored and banned. There is nothing wrong with what he is saying. He's right, they hate him because he tells the truth. Yet, all manner of transvestites, homosexuals, adoptionists, liars, witches and God haters are completely free to promote their ungodly filth on YouTube, and they do. Google acquired YouTube in 2006.

The Bible teaches that homosexuality is a horrible sin, just like adultery, fornication or murder. I appreciate that Google allows users to make free blogs, but censoring conservatives and Christians is not cool. It sure isn't freedom of speech. Remember, the U.S. Constitutions doesn't give us our rights, it merely outlines our God-given right to freedom of speech. People in North Korea today don't have any freedom of speech, because their Communist government doesn't fear God. America is sadly headed that way!

My website has lost 95% of my web traffic since 2017 because of Google's censorship. That is discouraging! I also have to be careful what I say on my blog, or they'll remove that too. I save my hardest preaching for my websites, which I control, not Google. They have effectively cut my tongue out. Although Google may relish in having such power at this present time, in the future they will reap in eternity what they have sown (Galatians 6:7). Google may have sincere intentions (we don't know), but by silencing Christians, conservatives and God-fearing Americans, Google is pulling on the same rope as the Devil. I say that to their shame. Abortion is cold-blooded murder and Google shouldn't be removing all my anti-abortion banners from their search engine, but they did.

Tucker Carlson: Google Tries To Censor Content It Disagrees With

Google removed all of my hundreds of anti-abortion images from my ministry websites. That is not freedom of speech! Yet, YouTube daily promotes lewd women in scantily clad whorish clothing in advertisements, trying to seduce me to get money. I used to complain regularly, but YouTube changed their system so that now you have no choice and cannot even complain anymore. They just shove indecently images of immoral women in your face, warring against men's souls as the inspired Holy Bible warns in 1st Peter 2:11, “Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

Censorship is not just limited to big tech companies. The ungodly U.S. military also censored soldiers. A female Marine was disciplined for posting a Bible verse in her office cubicle of Isaiah 54:17, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.” Well, the U.S. government can continue to attempt to censor God, but it won't work!

Since 1963 our ungodly U.S. government has banned the Holy Bible and prayer1963 our ungodly U.S. government has banned the Holy Bible and prayer from the public schools. Should we be insanely surprised why crime is out of control across the country in 2024, after training generations of Godless youth in our Communist schools of indoctrination? Slowly but surely we are losing our freedoms in the United States. It is now illegal on college campuses to criticize Israel, a manmade wicked nation since 1948. As a born again Christian since age 13, I do NOT stand with Israel.

Job 20:5, “That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment? The homosexual community has come out of their closets. They now demand that we as Christians accept them in their unrepentant state, which I will never do. In today's heathen world, if you refuse to go along with the homosexual agenda, you're essentially committing career suicide. That is why Taylor Swift has sold her soul to the Devil, now considered an icon in the sodomite community in support of their demonic rights. I still fear God. If that makes me unpopular, so be it.

A German woman sent me a friend request on Facebook this week, which I accepted. She is looking for a husband, and I am looking for a wife. She asked what I dislike in a woman. I mentioned one word and never heard from her again... feminism! I hate feminism, which has ruined American women. Feminism is the Satanic rot of society—a parasite that sucks the femininity, sweetness, charm and softness out of a woman; turning her into a high-minded, bossy, masculine, motherless, career-minded, arrogant, wicked fool. Feminism is the antithesis of everything good that God intended for a Christian woman to be. If that offends you, get mad at God because He said it (1st Timothy 5:14-15).

We are living in perilous times today (2nd Timothy 3:1-7), in which Satan has deliberately confused everybody about their gender, which version of the Bible to use, which religion to follow, what to believe, who to vote for, open borders, homelessness, fentanyl drug abuse, crime in society, gun control, et cetera. People have never been more confused and straddling the fence between good and evil. I am on the side of the Lord Jesus Christ (Joshua 24:15).

Sadly, the free grace Gospel is also being censored in over 90% of Baptist churches today. You show me a church where the pastor says you must turn from your sinful behavior to get to Heaven, and I'll show you that it is a cult. The inspired King James Bible is full of Scripture passages which tell us how to be saved, which is by faith alone in Christ alone without works (Romans 4:1-7). Romans 4:4 plainly teaches that if salvation had ever been by WORKS, then it was by debt which God owed, and couldn't be by GRACE. We know from the Scripture that salvation has always been only by God's GRACE, and never by WORKS!!!

One Of The Most Misunderstood Words In The Bible

It is the word, “Repent

Sadly, the word "repent" is one of the most misunderstood words in the inspired Word of God. Most people think it means to turn from sin, or to be sorry for sin, or to be willing to turn from sin. But concerning salvation, repentance DOES NOT mean any of that. Repent means to change one’s mind. What must a person change their mind about to be saved? Is it change their mind about their sinning and to stop sinning (or be willing to turn from their sins)? NO, NO, AND NO. Well then, what must a lost person change their mind about TO BE saved? The context of the repentance verse will tell what the change of mind is about.

I think Michael P. Bowen, in his excellent defense of the Christian faith titled, I NEVER KNEW YOU, says it best:
I am at eternal odds with the false, counterfeit messages of salvation-by-works that are taught from virtually every pulpit today, on every television channel, and on every Christian radio station; however, I am not at eternal odds with the individuals who preach these counterfeit messages. My heart literally goes out to all of them because they simply do not understand Christ’s plan of salvation. They have been lied to by a crafty enemy named Satan, whose sole aim is to take as many people with him to the lake of fire as he can possibly manage to steal away from God using a counterfeit plan of salvation that appears so real, so genuine, and so holy that few ever realize they have been deceived by it. Oh reader, so many of today’s professing Christians who think they are going to heaven when they die are not going to make it to heaven as they had assumed because they’ve been lied to by today’s error-filled gospel messages.

Repentance is not a separate act from faith, although they are not the same thing. Here is the best quote that I've found on repentance, by Pastor Harry A. Ironside (1876-1951):
“Which comes first, repentance or faith? In Scripture we read, 'Repent ye, and believe the gospel.' Yet we find true believers exhorted to 'repent, and do the first works.' So intimately are the two related that you cannot have one without the other. The man who believes God repents; the repentant soul puts his trust in the Lord when the Gospel is revealed to him. Theologians may wrangle over this, but the fact is, no man repents until the Holy Spirit produces repentance in his soul through the truth. No man believes the Gospel and rests in it for his own salvation until he has judged himself as a needy sinner before God. And this is repentance.” ('Except Ye Repent,' p. 16)
The only thing that we need to repent from to be saved is UNBELIEF. Do we have to realize our sinful condition to be saved? Yes, of course, but there is not one verse in the entire inspired Holy Bible which requires a person to forsake sinning to be saved.

Nor does the Bible give anyone God's permission to commit sin just because they are saved (Romans 3:31, 5:20, 6:1). Every time Jesus forgave someone and healed them He AFTERWARDS said to them, “Go and sin no more.” John 5:14, “Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.” I personally think that this man had once commit a sin (perhaps a sexual sin) that caused his physical ailment. I humbly think the dear Lord was warning him not to do the same sinful thing again, lest he end up even worse off than before!

Repentance simply means “a change of mind.” Believers change our minds every day about all kinds of things, including the sins in our life. Repenting of sins throughout one's Christian life is solely a matter of DISCIPLESHIP, not SALVATION. It is a matter of growing in the Lord's grace (1st Peter 2:2), as we yield to the Holy Spirit's leading in obedience to the Holy Scriptures (2nd Corinthians 10:5; Galatians 5:22-25).

For example: Jesus said in Mark 1:15b, “
Repent ye, and believe the gospel.” He told them that they needed to change their mind to believe the Gospel. What was the change of mind about? Well, what did they have to change their mind about to believe the Gospel? The change of mind was either about their unbelief or about the Gospel itself. But either way, if they changed their mind, it would cause them to believe the Gospel.

Acts 20:21 mentions "repentance toward God." That’s a change of mind toward God. Jesus is God (1st Timothy 3:16 KJV). To be saved, we must change our mind about who Jesus is, and put our faith in him. Jesus is God, “
who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe” (1st Timothy 4:10b).

A changed life is the FRUIT of the indwelling Holy Spirit, and NOT a prerequisite to salvation or a part of saving-faith. Proponents of Lordship Salvation place the cart before the horse and have it all backwards. They frontload the Gospel, requiring all the mature aspects of a believer's life upfront. This is not the Gospel, it is bad religion.

In Mark 1:4, John the Baptist speaks of “...repentance for the remission of sins”; NOT “repentance of sins.” Acts 20:21 reads... “Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ." Notice that Biblical repentance is “TOWARD GOD.” In Acts 11:21 we read, “And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord.” So you see, in the Bible “repentance” was always “TOWARD GOD,” never from sin. A man may have to repent from the denial of his sins, so that he will BELIEVE THE GOSPEL, but there is no Biblical requirement to “turn from sins” to be saved.

Consider the following quote by the mighty man of God, Dr. Harry Ironside (1876-1951)...
"Repentance is the recognition of my sinnership — the owning before God that I am as vile as He has declared me to be in His holy Word."

SOURCE: 'Except Ye Repent,' by Dr. Harry Ironside, chapter 3
This is vastly different than actually ceasing from one's sin to be saved, which is a false gospel. Pastor Ironside is correct — repentance is simply realizing that one is a guilty, dirty, rotten, hopeless sinner in God's eyes. This is why we need a Savior. Thankfully, Jesus paid the price with His own literal precious blood (1st Peter 1:18,19; Hebrews 9:12).

Repentance is the admission that I am as guilty a sinner as a holy God hath declared me to be in His Holy Word (Romans 3:19). This is Biblical repentance... turning to the Lord. To turn towards Jesus Christ in faith for salvation is to turn one's back against sin, even though the person may not be willing to forsake sin at the time of salvation. It is ludicrous for anyone to teach that a lost sinner must give up their sins to be saved. As we saw with Lot and Samson in the Old Testament, and Demas and Peter in the New Testament, not all believers always live for God. Jesus even called the apostle Peter, “Satan” (Matthew 16:23).

Christian author Michael Patrick Bowen states in his excellent book titled, “I NEVER KNEW YOU,” on page 114...
“Repent, as Christ meant it to be in terms of salvation, means to change your mind from trusting in what you can do for God to trusting only in what He can do for you.”

SOURCE: Michael Patrick Bowen, a quote from the awesome book, “I NEVER KNEW YOU” (Page 114)
The beloved Pastor Bob Gray Sr. of the Longview Baptist Temple church in Texas correctly preaches . . .
“Repentance means to change your mind—change your mind—change your mind about how you want to get to Heaven to what God says you've got to do to get to Heaven. If you've got to repent of all your sins, you're still headed for Hell tonight.”

SOURCE: Pastor Bob Gray Sr., a quote from the awesome MP3 sermon, 'Why You Should Be A Part Of A Growing Church'
Pastor Tom Cucuzza makes this tremendous helpful statement:
“The Devil is doing his greatest work behind pulpits. [I] hate to say it, but that's the truth; because people have the presupposition that when you come to church and somebody gets up to speak, that person is speaking truth. That's the way we've been raised.” —Pastor Thomas M. Cucuzza, “Important Truths Satan Does Not Want You to Know
Dr. Mark G. Cambron Has it 100% Correct On Repentance

Here is an excellent and needful writing by Dr. Mark G. Cambron (1911-2000) on the subject of REPENTANCE. Please read the following quote carefully, because Dr. Cambron is one of few theologian who gets it, that is, he understands the simplicity of the Gospel and that repentance does not mean turning from sin as proponents of Lordship Salvation foolishly teach...
Repentance is necessary for salvation.

The Greek word for repent is metanoeo, which, translated into English is: to change ones mind. It does not mean to turn from sin. That would add works to salvation.

Repentance for salvation means a change of mind from men's ideas of salvation and religion, to an acceptance of Gods only way of salvation.

This results in a completely new creation, not a reformation of the old. The old nature remains as evil as ever after salvation and has not been reformed . . . The old nature can now be controlled by the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit.

God guarantees salvation. This is His gift to us.
God guarantees reward and fruit to the obedient son.
God guarantees chastening and loss of rewards to the disobedient son.

God does not cast out disobedient children, but in some cases, does take them home. He does not permit His children to live as they please without His discipline and guidance.

Many teach repentance for salvation incorrectly, by including some form of human effort or righteousness, such as willingness to turn from sin, or turning from sin. This is heresy and has confused many people. It adds works to salvation and causes many to not understand Gods great gift. It is probation, not salvation. It is completely unscriptural. It is Galatianism and a counterfeit of the gospel.

It is a tragedy that many Christians live shallow Christian lives. The Cambron Institute is dedicated to the task of training Christian men and women in the importance of total dedication and making Jesus the Lord of their lives not to be saved but because they are saved.

Shallow Christianity cannot be cured by adding works to salvation.

Salvation is not the result of what we do, but is by receiving what God has done for us. Acts 13:38, 39; Acts 20:20: Gal. 1:8,9; Gal. 2:4; Gal. 2:21; Gal. 3:1.3; Gal. 5:1-4; Eph. 2:8-10; II Cor. 5:21;John 3:16-18; Phil. 3:9; Titus 3:5-8:11 Cor. 11:13-1 5.
