  I am a credobaptist. That means I believe that a believer should only be baptized once they come to genuine faith in Christ following repentance and acceptance of the Gospel. This is known as believers' baptism. The opposing viewpoint is paedobaptism. This is known as infant baptism, here a young child is baptized whilst still an infant. They have no repentance, and no belief.  There is not a single instance of infant baptism in the New Testament. The Old Covenant was entered into through circumcision (for males only, females were left in the lurch), and the vast majority of Israelites who were circumcised were not saved. The New Covenant is wholly different and better. The entrance into the new covenant is the baptism of the Holy Spirit (spiritual) not water baptism (physical). And unlike the Old Covenant, all members under the New Covenant are saved. Roman Catholics, Orthodox, Lutherans and some Anglicans, further believe that baptism is salvific. This theological pos

Say no to Harry Potter!

The Harry Potter books/movies use spells adapted from actual magic spells, and contain the names of actual demons! It is a gateway for our kids and grandkids into the occult. We should burn the Harry Potter books and melt the DVDs of the movies! Filth. Look how it spread as a worldwide phenomenon and made Rowling a billionaire! Definitely Satan at work. And I get tired of hearing clueless Christian parents say,  "At least my child is reading!" As if there is nothing else they can read but demonic filth! Harry Potter has popularized occult teachings and practices. The Harry Potter books have sold over 500 million copies. And the movies have been viewed hundreds of millions of times earning more than $9 billion USD at the box office. It has introduced a generation to magic and has normalized occult beliefs and practices. Harry Potter has taught children that magic and witches and wizards and the occult, in general, are cool and fun and good. It taught them to not fear magic, an

Death of the Apostles

Most of the Apostles of the New Testament died as martyrs, knowing even as their bodies would fall asleep, they would rise with Christ! Here is a list of how the Apostles died. If you have corrections or further details to add please leave a comment! 1. Matthew . Suffered martyrdom in Ethiopia, Killed by a sword wound. 2. Mark . Died in Alexandria, Egypt , after being dragged by Horses through the streets until he was dead. 3. Luke . Was hanged in Greece as a result of his tremendous Preaching to the lost. 4. John .

The apostle John was later freed and returned to serve As Bishop of Edessa in modern Turkey . He died as an old man, the only apostle to die peacefully 5. Peter . He was crucified upside down on an x s

Capitalism Defended

According to increasingly many Democrats in America, who fancy themselves as 'Democratic Socialists', the free market, using capitalist principles, has brought oppression, racism, income inequality, and poverty. This is a popular refrain from socialists like AOC, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren. Is the free market actually guilty of so much evil? Not at all! While it certainly has problems, free-market capitalism has raised more people out of poverty than ANY OTHER ECONOMIC SYSTEM in history! I am against crony capitalism. I favor morally restrained capitalism, contra the "Greed is good." of the 1980s Wall Street yuppies! All the data we have is clear that in the past 200 years (1820 - 2020), the rates of poverty globally have been reduced dramatically thanks to capitalism.  Both baseline poverty rates, as well as extreme poverty rates, have decreased sharply under capitalism. Millennials and Gen-Z are being brainwashed by socialist teachers to believe that so

William Tyndale defended

Catholic apologists online, make a habit, I've noticed, of discrediting the great Reformed Martyr William Tyndale. They use fraudulent revisionist history to do this. I've lost count of the times I've seen Catholics dismiss Tyndale's work as 3rd rate or "riddled with errors". The truth is that Tyndale was a consummate scholar and ranked as the preeminent translator of his day. He was the Jerome of his generation! A master scholar of eight languages, Tyndale was meticulous in his translation of the Bible’s original Greek and Hebrew, and his style of English was uncommonly beautiful. Tyndale’s translation of the Bible was simple but elegant. As his translation spread, his plain rhetorical style also spread and began to form the basis of a new English style, one that took common speech and elevated it into comprehensible prose. Some of the most famous phrases in the English language can still be attributed to Tyndale, including “and the truth shall make you fre
