***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I have acquaintance who is a Muslim. His name is
Muhammad. How should I approach him re: his faith?
ANSWER: Here is the bottom line. The Bible and the Qu'ran can't both be
correct, like the Bible and the Book of Mormon can't both be correct.
Challenge your friend to read the Bible and accept God's Word for what it
is, the ONLY Truth there is! One has to be Truth, the other a lie from
hell. GOD, wrote the Bible. MAN wrote the Qu'ran and the Book of Mormon.
We all are free to believe what we want. That is a choice each person must
make. I choose to put my faith and belief in what God says, not man. The
LIE from hell is that everyone's truth will get them to Heaven, when the
ONLY Truth that will get you to Heaven is in the Bible alone!!!
***SOULS! THE ETERNAL SOULS OF MEN! PLEASE, READ THIS TODAY AND DON'T LOSE
SIGHT OF THE FACT THAT EVERY PERSON WILL DIE, AND THEIR SOUL WILL EITHER END
UP IN HEAVEN OR HELL FOR ALL ETERNITY!!!
Jodi Arias, Travis Alexander, Glenn Beck, and the death penalty! The nation
is once again fixated on a high profile court case. This time in Phoenix
where a 32-year-old woman named Jodi Arias admitted to savagely killing her
ex-boyfriend in 2008 by stabbing him 29 times and then shooting him in the
face. It is a gruesome story of sex, manipulation, and murder.
Arias, once caught, lied to the police that she was even there at the time
of the murder. Once she was confronted with evidence that she was, she
concocted a story about a home invasion. Ultimately, she and her defense
team admitted to killing her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander, but in self
Most likely she will be convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to
death. This brings up the question whether the death penalty is Biblical.
Before dealing with that question, I find the saddest part of this case that
Alexander, the murdered boyfriend, is in hell for all eternity. Sadly, he
and his family bought into the lies of the Mormon cult, and when Arias
killed him, he was immediately sent to an eternity in hell.
WHY DO YOU THINK I TRY TO HELP YOU EVERY DAY TO UNDERSTAND THE GRAVITY OF
WHAT A PERSON DOES ABOUT JESUS, AND THE ETERNAL DAMAGE THE CULTS AND FALSE
RELIGIONS DO BY PERPETUATING THEOLOGICAL LIES THAT LEAD THE SOULS OF MEN TO
HELL FOR ALL ETERNITY???
While many may get upset for me stating this fact, this is the bottom line
of life. This journey is over so quick, whether it is 5 years, 15 years, 45
years, or 95 years! We either have accepted the Jesus of the Bible by faith
and are assured by God of eternity in Heaven, or we have rejected God's free
gift of everlasting life through His Son and will die in our sins and spend
etenrity in hell.
THIS IS WHAT MOST PASTORS DON'T WANT TO DISCUSS! SATAN IS NOT PLAYING GAMES
AND IS LOOKING TO TAKE AS MANY SOULS TO HELL WITH HIM AS HE CAN. MEANWHILE,
WE DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT HELL AND EVEN BELIEVE THE FROM SATAN'S LIPS THAT
EVERYONE WILL SOMEHOW MAKE IT TO HEAVEN. THAT IS NOT WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES
AND MAKES WHAT JESUS DID ON THE CROSS A MEANINGLESS ACT!!!
That is why sharing the Gospel is so critical. That is why not being afraid
to tell people that without Jesus, the Jesus of the Bible, they will take
their last breath and end up for all eternity in a place created for satan
and the fallen angels who followed him from Heaven!
This is why I have warned people for a decade about Glenn Beck. Sadly, in
this age of Biblical illiteracy within the church, with the fact the largest
percentage of the past two generations have never even been to church, Beck
and his cult, other cults and false religions, are having a field day adding
people to their false beliefs since most Christians don't even witness any
The Bible says satan "masquerades as an angel of light!' He is a LIAR as
stated in John 8:44! Beck draws people in with his conservative political
views, acts and talks like someone who loves God and Jesus, but the "god"
Beck believes in is NOT the God of the Bible, nor is the "jesus" he and
those in his cult believe in! When Beck talks about praying, he might as
well pray to a toilet since praying to a non-existent god is just as
I am still waiting for someone in a public forum to confront Beck about his
false beliefs that he will die one day and become the god of his own planet
as Mormon men believe. He has paid off gutless modern day Judas' like David
Barton, John Hagee, James Robison, Ralph Reed, and a host of other high
profile "Christians" who have sold out the faith to give this cult member
undeserved credibility when he LIES that he is a Christian!
Jesus said don't worry about the one who can kill your body, worry about the
one who can kill your eternal soul! The fact was, all Jodi Arias could do
was take Alexander's life. It was Alexander who bought into the lies of the
Mormon cult that led him to an eternity in hell when he was killed! We will
ALL die one day in some way, at that moment, NOTHING will matter other than
what you have done with the Jesus of the Bible!
This will be difficult for some to comprehend, but it is what the Bible
teaches. Even if she is convicted of this horrific crime, Jodi Arias can
renounce the Mormon lies she embraced, renounce Wicca that she dabbled in at
a young age, and put her faith in the Jesus of the Bible as her Lord and
Savior, seek His forgiveness, and upon her death be assured of Heaven.
Many have trouble accepting this truth. They have trouble accepting the fact
that someone like a Jodi Arias could do something so horrible, yet still be
eternally with God. That is the price Jesus paid of the cross and why there
is NO OTHER WAY TO Be SAVED! OTHERWISE, HIS DEATH ON THE CROSS WAS
But you see, we are ALL sinners. The Bible proclaims that ALL have sinned
and fallen short of God's glory. In Ephesians chapter 2 it says "For it is
by grace you have been saved, though faith... and this is not from
yourselves, it is the gift of God...not by works, so that no one can boast."
My friend, God has made a way for everyone, even the Jodi Arias' of the
world, to accept Christ by faith, repent of their sins, and be born again.
Even though you may not have done anything as horrible as Arias did, the
fact is, you are still a sinner, and you will be eternally separated from
God, just like anyone who rejects faith in Jesus as their personal savior.
That does NOT mean Arias can escape the results of her actions. The issue
that will be debated if Arias is found guilty of first degree murder is
capital punishment. Many who oppose capital punishment say it is
hypocritical to be opposed to abortion and yet, support capital punishment.
That is an apples and oranges argument! Abortion is the killing of an
innocent life. Capital punishment is the killing of someone who is guilty of
a serious crime against society.
You can not even argue the two, because one deals with an innocent life, the
other deals with a guilty life. The baby killed in the womb did nothing
wrong and had no choice in their death. The person who is put to death by
the state CHOSE to commit the heinous crime that society deemed punishable
Another false argument is that capital punishment is not a deterrent to
others from committing the same kinds of horrible crimes. It is not supposed
to be a deterrent. It is the penalty society deems appropriate for those who
have CHOSEN to commit the most heinous of crimes against society.
You see, capital punishment has a very solid basis from scripture and
ultimately is a decision each society must determine. One of the wonderful
things about our country is that we can change laws that we feel are not
acceptable. For those who disagree with capital punishment, you have the
right to disagree. However, God's Word is our final authority on all
matters, and you cannot ignore the Biblical predicate for capital
I love you and care about you so much. The most important decision we will
make in this life is what we do with the Jesus of the Bible. That, and that
alone, will determine our eternal home! I have prayed extensively over these
words today. I asked God that in the midst of this sad trial millions are
watching, someone would read these words today and come to know Christ as
his/her personal savior.
If Jodi Arias is found guilty and given the death penalty, she will know the
date and time of her death. Most of us are not that fortunate. Most will
never know when they will die, and at that moment our chance to accept
Christ is lost.
I pray you don't wait too long. I also want you to pray today for Arias, the
Arias family, as well as the family of Travis Alexander. Pray for them to
find freedom from the lies of the Mormon cult! The incredible truth of the
Gospel is that even those who commit horrific crimes can still repent and
ask the Lord to forgive them. Christ loves each one of us so much He died
for our sins.
If you have never accepted Jesus as your Savior, He is standing at the door
of your heart today, knocking. It is no accident you are reading these
words. I am praying that you will open your heart to Him, and let Him in.
