"Christ Catholic Church does not discriminate and holds no regard for a person’s race, color, age, gender, sexual orientation, preference, relationship status, nationality, socioeconomic class, nor a person’s state of grace.

Christ Catholic Church is represented on the  translation team of  the Modern English Version.
It is favoured by at least one church, Calvary Christian Fellowship, Preston, Lancs

Resurrection clearly taught in Acts 13: 33

Dr West, in the Believer's Magazine, May 2015, repeats the old lie concerning resurrection not being found in Acts 13: 33. He rejects the divinely inspired Scripure.
Thus we repeat here the notes on this verse, published in AV Verses Vindicated by R Smith.

Acts 13:33

God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.

Critics tell us that “again” ought not to be in the verse. Not finding any manuscript variation, they quote from spurious authorities for its exclusion,- JND and the RV. Of course, they might well quote from almost any other modern version, but that might put brethren on their guard.

We quote

In Acts 13.33, where the AV reads, ''God hath fulfilled the same unto us. . .in that he hath raised up Jesus again'', note that the RV and JND, with others, omit the word ''again''. This is not the raising up of Jesus again from the dead, in resurrection, as in vv. 30 and 34. It is His being raised up amongst them as a man, as was David in v.22, ''He raised up unto them David''. This is obviously not resurrection. So, ''Of this man's seed hath God. . .raised unto Israel a Saviour, Jesus (v.23) . In connection with this true manhood, the apostle quotes the second Psalm in v.33.A Man had been raised up among them who was God's Son.    ̶ ̶  J Flannigan; What the Bible Teaches; Psalms; p23

So why does JND, in Matt.20:19, have “ the third day he shall rise again” and in 1 Thes. 4:13 “Jesus has died and has risen again”. The same word is used here, assuring us that the word in Acts 13:33 is the proper word for resurrection. It is a serious thing when brethren tamper with the word of God to promote their theological opinions. Also note Jn.11:23.

Flannigan’s note is from his commentary on Psalm 2 where he denies the Son to be eternally the only-begotten of the Father. This error is the product of Arianism. John tells us no man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. (Jn.1:18). Again, God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. (1 Jn.4:9). This is an eternal relationship.

The prefix ana- indicates repetition. The Anabaptists were those believers accused of re-baptising. (They rejected infant sprinkling and were baptised by immersion as believers.)

Leeds Brethren get into bed with Islam, with the Help of Precious Seed

"On the 19th of November 2014 the Leeds Muslim Youth Forum held a fair at the Hamara Centre to which many different faith-inspired organizations were invited to have a stall. They were seeking to attract organizations who had been inspired by their faith to do good for their communities and to make a positive contribution to society. Schools were booked to attend the fair, and all participants were asked to plan an activity for children to participate in. 
The organizers contacted Precious Seed (Faith Matters) [sic] and the information was passed onto the believers in Harehills Gospel Hall, Leeds, to see if they would be interested in staffing a stall. Ruth, one of the sisters in the assembly, became the main organizer and, along with others, staffed the stall. 
They report as follows, ‘We felt everything went really well, there were different stalls representing different groups – police, women’s support, Islam, Sikh sword fighting, etc. About eight school groups came to our stall to do cake decorating and loom band making. These activities were linked to creation. Every child, and everyone who passed the stall, got a goody bag containing a DVD called “The Cross”. For some, it was an immediate turn-off, for others it was the reason they stopped and spoke with us "
 . ̶ Precious Seed, report page, vo.70, issue 1,2015

So now we know where J Scarsbrook,  J Bennett, and the rest of the Precious Seed crowd stand. Bible believers are recommended to download the free e-book, The Bible and Islam. available via the website.

When Elijah put up his stall (altar) next to the Baal stall, and Elijah mocked the Baal worshippers, was this a serious case of Baalophobia?

J Jacob maligns God at Hebron Gospel Hall,Bicester

"God can give up on you today."  -- J Jacob.

This statement can be heard on the Hebron Gsospel Hall website. Click on ,Audio and go to the sermon on Joshua: Conquest of Jericho, 8th March 2015.  J Jacob. There is more there that will concern the Bible believer.

The God I know is longsuffering and merciful. He is a Saviour God. Whsoever calleth on the name of the Lord shall be saved.... unless God has got fed up waiting for you,apparently, according to Jacob.

Jacob has uttered this pernicious view on more than one occasion. He has a very limited view of the truth of Scripture. 
We do not expect any Bicesterphiles to be the slightest bit bothered by Jacob's lies.

We understand that Dr. J Jacob and his wife are under investigation by the GMC for alleged misconduct.

Killamarsh Brethren's Referendum passed in favour of receiving adulterers

We hear that the Brethren assembly in Killamarsh has taken a democratic vote on the divorce issue. Subsequent to this an adulterer has been received into fellowship.

Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery. Luke 16: 18

These words, spoken by the Lord, are so crystal clear they hardly need comment. 

The “But, But” men will object. These words must be seen in their context, and compared with other Scriptures, they tell us. That is, certain men, scoffers, believe the Lord contradicted Himself  elsewhere.
What of the context of Luke 16? A superficial reading might  suggest  verse 18 does not fit into the context. It appears to have little to do with what went before or what follows after.

A Bible believer will understand the context.  The Lord in v;15, said  That which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God

The liberty to make marriage vows in the sight of God and then break them is highly esteemed among men. In the sight of God this is an abomination. God has never changed His mind regarding abominations and thus, in this context, all are reminded of the abiding standing of God’s law.
Then the context following v.18 gives us an example of a man who no doubt highly esteemed divorce. A man,  we note, who went down into hell. A God-hater.

So we note the defiant nature of the mischievous men in Killamarsh.
And what of any among their flock who objected to the referendum? Those who do not wish to sit down and break bread with adulterers? They will have to be punished for their divisive behaviour.
Come ye out from amongst them and be ye separate, saith the Lord

J Ritchie's Tainted Poem. April 2015

John Grant, in his Believers Magazine, has published a poem titled "Untainted".
It mocks Scripture and is therefore a seriously tainted poem.
We read

"Prising out the nails that makes Him fall from the accursed tree;
Creation looks on Him, relying, in His hand all hope is found,
Yet the King of Life is lying, cold and silent on the ground."

 My Bible tells me this man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.and he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre  (Luke 23: 52,53

Joseph took the body down. Therefore it did not fall. 

Next, we read, 

"He who gave the myrrh its savour, by whose hand the spice is grown,
Now the object of God’s favour, takes their fragrance for His own."

But the Scripture tells us

 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they [the women] came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. (Luke 24: 1-3)

  God did not permit the anointing of the body of Jesus. His body did not, could not, see corruption.


"Watching while the blessed Anointed lies a captive there asleep."

This is sheer blasphemy. At death He cried with a loud voice, Father into thy hands I commend my spirit.
and "captive"?? If our poet meant Christ went down to Hell, then our poet must be a Christ hater. The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations thast forget God. 9Psalm 9: 170

  My Saviour was never captive, under any condition.

The unbelieving approach to the inspiration of Scripture is yielding its filthy results.
