Being the Atheists "enemy"

Another message from the Atheist:

"I argue these things because the safety of human intellect is in danger from terrorists insisting they 'know' the reality of life, the implied laws and guidelines that just one of thousands of imagined gods require, or else. You are my enemy, and as such we will beat back the ignorance, stupidity and willful endangerment of our youth and our future until it stops twitching. This is a fact."

All Atheists are Nazis at heart and they want to control the way you think. 

Psalms 53:
[1] The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
[2] God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
[3] Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one

Religous Atheism

A former JW turned atheist sent me this...

"Yes, moral guidelines that, again, originate from the pen of a HUMAN, and evolution demonstrates where all of this comes from: empathy for survival of a population through recognized social acceptance."

"One day soon, like many species on this very planet, science will reveal the methods for eternal life. This is simply inevitable. It's a reality, its demonstrable, and above all, its realistic."

Evolution gives this atheist his morals and his 'eternal life'. This man is more religious than the Pope. 

The more you listen to atheists, the more you realize they are completely out of their skull.   

John 3:
[15] That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
[16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
[17] For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
[18] He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God

Dr. Ruckman preaching the gospel

Dr. Ruckman giving the gospel...

Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Dr. Ruckman on Hyper Dispensationalism and the sinner's prayer

Someone wrote me recently and said that it is "Hyper Dispensationalists" that are against the sinner's prayer. However, one's dispensational position has no bearing on what they believe about the sinner's prayer.

Dr. Ruckman said that it was "Bible believing Christians" and "Bible Believing Baptists" that are against the sinner's prayer. In fact, when it comes to "whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord" in Acts 2:21, Dr. Ruckman said that it is the Hypers that have the best of the argument. 

"Realizing this, a new group of heretics (in this case, Bible Believing Baptists) have come up saying that if a man prays to get saved (or more specifically prays the sinner's prayer), then he is lost." 
(Page 405 of The Book of Romans, The Bible Believer's Commentary Series, by Dr. Peter Ruckman)

"There is a movement among Bible believing Christians today that says if you pray to receive Christ, that is a work, and you aren't saved by works (Eph. 2:8-9; Tit. 3:5). The logical conclusion to such an argument is that if you prayed to get saved, that you are lost and need to be saved (again!). It is the Baptist version of the Brownsville Revival retreaders." 
(Page 566 of The Book of Luke, The Bible Believer's Commentary Series, by Dr. Peter Ruckman)

" "...whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (vs. 21). The verse is often linked to Romans 10:13 to prove that Peter, here, is preaching "the plan of salvation"; however, this is not the case, and again the "Hypers" have the best of the argument."
(Page 81 of The Book of Acts, the Bible Believer's Commentary Series, by Dr. Peter Ruckman)

By the way, if you check page 130 of Dr. Ruckman's commentary on Matthew you will see that he did not believe "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find" was written about repeating the so called "sinner's prayer". Dr. Ruckman said it was "more Old Testament than New" and said that it was instruction for a "Jew praying to the Father". Dr. Ruckman then said that the passage has "spiritual truth" that can be applied to Christian prayer. He did not believe it was referring to lost Gentiles in the present dispensation of grace. 

It is impossible for Matthew 7:7 to be referring to lost people because "God heareth not sinners" (Isa. 59:1-2, Ps. 34:15-16, Matt. 7:21, John 9:31, 1 Pet. 3:12, Prov. 15:29, 28:9). The passage plainly says that the prayer is addressed to the "Father which is in heaven" (vs. 11), a lost person's father is the devil (John 8:44). 

Besides that, Matthew 7:7 would contradict Romans 10:20 if it were referring to lost Gentiles... 

Romans 10:20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.

Robert Breaker has an excellent video dealing with the sinner's prayer and Matthew 7:7. 

Also check out Mr. Breaker's ebook, The heresy of the sinner's prayer

And also "The Reasons Why We Left Our Old Home Church"

As I have said many times, this is my position on the "sinner's prayer":

Therefore, since salvation is received by faith alone without any mixture of works, prayer has absolutely no part whatsoever in salvation. To tell someone they will be saved by "repeating after you" is a false gospel that denies the truth that Christ is the only mediator between God and men (1 Tim. 2:5). To tell someone to pray in order to be saved is to be telling them to offer their works to God in order to be saved (Col. 4:12, Heb. 5:7). 

I fully understand that all people pray when they get saved, for the Bible says that when we got saved that God "sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father" (Gal. 4:6). And "ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:" (Rom. 8:15-16). 

And thus begins a lifelong communion with God by the Holy Ghost whereby we have access to the Father (Eph. 2:18). 

Everybody prays (whether in their heart, mind, or mouth) WHEN they get saved. However, nobody gets saved BY praying. No apostle, preacher, or evangelist in the Bible ever told anyone to repeat a prayer after them to be saved. It was simply "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved" (Acts 13:38-39, 16:31). "
