But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 19:14
Revelation 2:7, 11, 17, 29; 3:6, 13, 22 - He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches…
2 Timothy 2:15 - Study to shew thyself approved…
John 5:39 - Search the scriptures…
I will try to make this short, but it may be longer than what I intend, but I apologize if it seems to be lengthy.
Common is today for the Christian to not to study the Bible to check out things for themselves instead of believing everything they hear. One Pastor once said, if you don’t believe me, check the Bible. So I do this. Do you or do you believe everything you hear?
After reading John 9:1-41, it is simple and easy to understand. Even a child can understand, if properly taught. I read this passage a few days ago and the Lord really opened my eyes even more, to confirm to me what I am going to speak on is Bible truth, and NOT my opinion, but what the Lord is leading me to say. Remember, God only speaks to us by reading His Word. After much reading, going over it, studying, I see what the Lord wants me to see and what needs to be told that needs to be told to those who will read this. What I will say here I will not debate or even respond to other opinions. To do so is to quench, resist, vex, and grieve the Holy Spirit. You are entitled to your own opinion and that is fine, but I will not argue with anyone as I find it gets one nowhere. When argument arises the devil gets into it, and I am sure none of you Christians, or soon to be Christians, or those in other religions, do not want to give place to the devil.
In this passage, this has to do with much more than just Jesus healing a blind man. It is much to do with the way the world. Most Christians, and most all fundamental Baptist churches in general, believe today concerning sin. Though you may not think it does, but it does. I will explain to you. This is my own and I am in no way copying anyone else’s writings, or doctrine. This is what God gave me as I read His Bible, the KJV. So, bear with me friends. If you read it in the context, you will see what Jesus Christ says, and read between the lines too, but do not add what you think it says or tells you. Only do what the Lord would have you to do as you read and study (2Timothy 2:15).
So, you say we born sinners as most Baptists, and Fundamental Baptists, say we are? Really? Or born with a sin nature? Or Adamic nature? Well, sin nature and Adamic nature is NOT in the Bible. In other versions, yes. But NOT in God’s Word, the KJV. So you need to open your mind and stop believing what Augustine created, as this is a doctrine of Catholicsm. If you don’t believe me, study for yourself, unless you are too lazy. This doctrine is created and taught by Catholicism, not by God, nor by Christ, but by man and a religion. If you research, you would see I am right. So stop believing lies that are not Bible-based. Why do you think the Roman Catholic religion persecuted and killed thousands of Christians? Because the Christians refused to believe this and refused to believe that precious innocent babies are born sinners and need baptism to prevent them from going to hell.
Catholicism says, we have to baptize them to save them from going to hell because they are wicked, evil, and born sinners and in sin. This is one reason why the Christians were killed brutally and tortured. Research it and stop being close minded. These Baptists did not believe this false doctrine back then. But today, most of you believe what false religion tells you. Why do you, Christian, or pastors believe what the cults teach? You are in good company because if you believe what the cults believe, you are cultish in your beliefs. Also remember, when 1 doctrine is wrong it will affect all other doctrines as well. You refuse to stop teaching what false religions teach because it is what you were taught. Even well-meaning teachers can teach their students false doctrine. Those who accept a church to pastor in, just don’t know any better because it is what they were taught, and usually will not study to see if what they were taught is actually Biblically correct.
Many well-meaning pastors and Christians love God, are faithful to Him in everything, have a love for Him, and obedient to Him. But, they just are wrong in this doctrine as they were and are taught wrong. This is why I will never go to a Bible college, seminary, or Bible institute, as these things are rampant in majority of these places. I want to be taught pure Godly doctrine, not opinions from others who have not heartfelt fully been taught by God Almighty Himself. What about you Christian? Stop believing what false religions teach. Get right with God in your heart. Jehovah Witnesses refuse to give blood transfusions that could save a human life because they believe that sin is in the blood, and in turn, sin will be passed on to that person. Again, this is a lie, just plain misleading and false by the heathen religion. Sin is NOT a physical issue, it is a moral issue.
Now, let us go down to Bible business. If you have a King James Bible, get it out, read and study it, as other versions water down a lot concerning everything relating to God’s Word, the KJV. In John 9, it is about the man who was born blind. The disciples asked a simple question (verse 2), “Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?” Christ gave them a simple answer (verse 3), “Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him”. Do you follow so far?
Speechless are you? Christ did not say he was born in sin or a sinner. You should not even be able to speak against what Christ said here. If you do, YOU call Christ the Lord a liar. But you go to other verses in the Bible and try to justify other verses that you think say contrary to what is told here. You contradict what the Word of God says by doing so. I know you believe what I say, but maybe you are too hard-hearted to give in because you were taught differently by your teachers and peers.
Now, let us continue. The Pharisees and Jews questioned the blind man in vs.10, 15, 17, 19, 24, and 26. In verse 34, they cast out the blind man. Most of you are like the Pharisees as you question everything and you don’t believe due to your hard heart and pride. So as the Pharisees are, so are most of you won’t believe when someone tells you something Biblical. You have a hard time grasping the truth, you try to twist around and justify what you were pre-programmed to believe as you were taught by well-meaning teachers, preachers, college teachers, etc. I say, PRE-PROGRAMMED in your minds and your hearts. A lot of you preach this damnable heresy and you are destroying a foundation of God’s Word. I for one will never believe what you may believe. It is just your opinion, but yours is a wrong one. But, I do believe you will be open to this and will gradually come around to the Lord’s side.
A recapitulation of John 9, Jesus was excommunicated, or thrown out, for healing on the Sabbath, the blind man was excommunicated (vs.34), and YOU will be excommunicated by your church also. Some may be more lenient and tolerant and want to fellowship, which is vital for us. Me? I need your fellowship. Some will throw you out as I was also a few years ago. I lost some dear friends, but most just do not care. They try to justify they are right, and you have to believe what they believe, you have to believe what the church believes, what the church’s statement of faith says, and you have to believe the church covenant, etc. On the contrary, you do not have to believe. If God convicts you to not believe certain things in a church’s statement of faith, you better not believe. You either leave, or you can stay, or go to another church, or have your own Bible Home church (which is for those who can’t find a Baptist church in their area) in your own home, if there is no true Bible believing church to go to. You may, and will lose many dear friends, but with no fault of yours. If some still want to be my friends, I more than welcome this. Remember, many will put you and I in a separate class and we will be outcasts.
To finish up, I leave you with some verses to ponder and study seriously. These are but a few ok? ALL THESE VERSES ARE INSPIRED OF AND BY GOD, BUT READ THEM IN ITS CONTEXT AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND BETTER
Psalm 51:5 - David’s prayer of heart-brokenness and deep sorrow after his wicked adultery with Bathsheba. In no way does he even refer to being born a sinner or in sin. It was just figure of speech. Ps.58:3 - No one is born a liar or speaks lies. Babies cry as they need attention from the parents. They cannot speak nor express that they need love and care. They do not lie as most Christians think so. If you think this, you are NO Christian. It does not refer to babies. If you read the whole chapter you will be surprised what is actually refers to. God showed me, He will show you IF you open your closed mind.
Genesis 8:21 and Deuteronomy 1:39 - Man’s heart is evil from his youth. NOT from his birth. Ephesians 2:3 - Paul is speaking to adults here, saying what they were before their salvation. Does not imply to babies at all? Matthew 18:3, 19:14, Luke 18:16-17, 9:46-48, Mark 9:33-37, 42, and 10:13-16 speak of little children, never did Christ once say or call them little sinners, nor were they either. His teaching here is easy to understand, if you are able to. He simply tells that they belong to the kingdom of heaven and are sinless, if you study it properly.
Reading the New Testament, you will never ever see Jesus teaching His disciples that they were born in sin, or born sinners. He never taught such foolishness nor can you disprove what I say. Genesis 3:1, Revelation 12:9, 20:7-8 - Not even the devil knew nothing about the doctrine of a sin. God never taught him. People are gullible and Satan is truly stupid. Genesis 1:27 and 2:7 - Here it is confirmed in the 1st book of the Bible. We are created in God’s image. Is God’s image evil, sinful? Wickedness? No. God’s image is pure, undefiled, perfect, holy and just. He created us in HIS image, as we are born without sin and not a sinner or with a sin nature. If not in God’s image, then where does this sin nature come from? From man teaching, not God’s! It does not grow in us nor produced in us as we grow up. Remember, Jesus was born a HUMAN BABY. If we are born sinners, so is Christ. You say, “no”. Ah-ah. Jesus was a 100% human baby, but also 100% God Himself also. If we are born sinners, so was He. If He was, He could never be the Saviour of the world. But since He is God, and never born in sin, but is holy, just, pure, perfect and sinless in every way, so we are not born in sin.
