From One Believer To Another

From One Believer To Another

If this is your first time visiting this blog, “Welcome!”

As you read, I pray you’ll not see me as being angry at anyone. Firm at times with some, I’ll agree with that. I know that no matter what a person has gone through, things they’ve said or done, or still doing for that matter, there’s a 50/50 chance of my having sought forgiveness for doing the exact same thing at one time or another. I know the battle is not against flesh and blood my friend.

Throughout this blog you will find me quoting things heard on the radio. You’ll not find the names of those who said these things in the posts. I do document their names, the date, time, and radio station call sign on my copy of the original document. I do not publish these details because our mission should be to expose the false teachings not to personally attack the person.

If you should continue reading my friend, you will find the Anthanasian Creed being exposed for what it is, a false doctrine. The word of God having the final say. My trusting in He who knows hears and sees all things, the God of the [Bible].

The person that’s confessing Jesus is the Son of God, the Lord and the Savior of their life, according to the [Scriptures] mind you, has absolutely nothing to fear. Jesus died on a cross for the sin of the world, and He’s now working on their behalf.

Not My Call to Make


“That you may with one mind and with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 15:6 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulations, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written:

“For your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”  Yet in all things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:35-39 (NKJV)

What separates people “from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”?  Leaning on one’s own understanding of the [Bible], or someone else’s for that matter, opens the door for false teachings to creep in and smother [Biblical] truths.

The person that’s confessing Jesus is the Son of God, the Lord and the Savior of their life, according to the [Scriptures] mind you, has absolutely nothing to fear.  Jesus died on a cross for the sin of the world, and He’s now working on their behalf.  Nothing can separate them “from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  The key words being, according to the [Scriptures].

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6 (NKJV)

Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’” John 20:17 (NKJV)

People may not like hearing this, Jesus being the only way to “the Father.” They can’t see there being only one way, but it is [Biblically] impossible to prove otherwise.  John 14:6 is plain, simple, and easy to understand.  Even in a world bent on silencing [Biblical] truths Jesus is, and will continue to be, the only way to “the Father.”  When Jesus speaks of “the Father,” He’s referring to “My God” His God and, “My Father” Father (John 20:17). 

Followers of the Anthanasian Creed for example, are forced to make John 14:6 and John 20:17 conform to the Anthanasian Creeds way of salvation, by creating a falsehood that is not depicted in the [Bible]. If they gave the inspired word of God the final say instead, followers of that creed would understand that “the Father” in John 14:6 refers to Jesus’ God and Father.  Jesus’ brethren’s God and Father and Jesus’ God and Father are one and the same (John 20:17).  I would expect that the true follower of Jesus today would agree that their God and Father and Jesus’ God and Father are one and the same.

Having to believe [or else] the Anthanasian Creeds “the Son is God” to be saved, has absolutely nothing to do with God’s plan of salvation. 

Since 325-AD, nothing has caused more people to turn from [Biblical] truths to false teachings than the Anthanasian Creed.

People can choose to believe whatever they like, that’s certainly not my call to make.  It is my obligation to tell you believing in the [Biblical] Jesus, is the safest thing one could do.

God bless.

Jesus Saying It's So Makes It So


“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort.” 2 Corinthians 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

What you’re about to read is an E-mail I sent to someone I heard on the radio.  It’s just as I sent it, except the blank spaces.  That information was left out intentionally because it could lead to identifying who this individual is, and that’s not my intent.  I did receive notification of it making its way to the proper place.

If you’re interested in preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ in truth, you’d be better off sticking to what’s actually written in the [Bible].  This would keep one from having to explain why they’ve chosen to teach as [Biblical] truths things either not mentioned in the [Bible], or that contradicts it altogether.  See if you agree.

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

Dear ______,

My name is Jim Masterson.  I am a regular listener to Christian Radio here in New Hampshire and frequently catch your show.  I was listening on _________, _________, and heard you say something that confused me.  I hope you can clarify it for me. 

John chapter five, verses one through fifteen, the man healed at the pool of Bethesda, is the target here.  I heard you say “Thirty eight years, how did Jesus know that? He knows everything that was a dumb question.”

I’m [very] interested in hearing why you believe Jesus knows all things.  I’m asking because in Mark 13:32 He demonstrates otherwise.

“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Mark 13:32 (NKJV)

After reading “Nor the Son” in Mark 13:32, would you say that Jesus knows all things?  I wouldn’t.

I have a second question for you as well.  On _______, __________, referring to the age of the man healed at the pool of Bethesda, I heard you say “The average life span then was forty years.”  I do not see this in the Bible.  In what text did you find the evidence of it being so?

I thank you in advance for your response.  Looking forward to hearing from you.

God bless.

The Anthanasian Creeds Way is the Wrong Way


“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” 1 Peter 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

“Look” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” Daniel 3:25 (NKJV)

While listening to the local “Christian” radio station I heard the speaker on the radio “quoting” Daniel 3:25 from a [Bible] but ended it with “like the gods.”  As you can see there’s a significant difference between “like the Son of God” in the NKJV and, “like the gods.”  The speaker on the radio is a follower of the Anthanasian Creed.

With a simple internet search I was able to look at a number of [different] versions of the bible, targeting Daniel 3:25, and “like the gods” wasn’t found in any of them.  Looking to contact the speaker (via e-mail), no electronic contact information was available which is why I’m sharing this with you now.

Some people are bent on teaching their own version of the [Bible], or someone else’s who believes the same as them.  For example those that have attended seminary, left believing the doctrine of the “Trinity” is [Biblically] sound.  They can’t make a case without first placing the [Bible] in the position of being subject to the Anthanasian Creed. 

The follower of that creed won’t see it that way but proving it to be so, won’t be a problem.  There’s no [Biblical] evidence of anyone having to believe the Anthanasian Creed for anything, let alone the only way to salvation.

Since the last entry of the New Testament was recorded, one system of belief after another has surfaced.  This in of itself proves that with man, the inspired word of God is open for discussion.  Simply put with man believing they have the final say in what is truth, the [Bible] is insufficient evidence as is.  It is my obligation to tell you the [Bible] is more than sufficient enough as is.

And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself. But Paul called with a load voice, saying “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.”

Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” Acts 16:27-31 (NKJV)

Wherever you may be, I pray the message that’s preached is Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.  1 John 4:15 (NKJV)

“The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is blessed forever, knows that I am not lying.” 2 Corinthians 11:31 (NKJV)

The person believing and confessing “Jesus is the Son of God,” Paul’s “God and Father” and Jesus’ “God and Father” are one and the same (2 Corinthians 11:31), and that the Anthanasian Creed has absolutely nothing to do with the salvation of their soul, has absolutely nothing to fear.  The Anthanasian Creeds way, and God’s plan of salvation cannot coexist.

God bless.

There's Only One Reason


“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” 1 Peter 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

While listening to the local “Christian” radio station I heard, “It’s very important that you belong to a church preaching the word of God.”  It’s not enough to say this.  Those preaching at the earthly institutions called “church” should live this out.  But are they?

Having to believe [or else] “the Son is God” to be saved for example, it’s directly linked to earthly institutions called “church.”  It has absolutely nothing to do with God’s plan of salvation.  It’s a byproduct of the Anthanasian Creed and nothing has caused more people to turn from [Biblical] truths to false teachings, than the Anthanasian Creed. 

The speaker on the radio is a follower of the Anthanasian Creed.  Followers of that creed shouldn’t say things like “It’s very important that you belong to a church preaching the word of God” when they themselves are distorting it.

I believe and confess Jesus is the Son of God, the Lord and the Savior of my life.  I totally trust the events, leading up to and including Jesus’ death burial and resurrection, are recorded accurately in the [Bible]. 

There’s absolutely nothing a person could say and/or do, that’ll prove God’s plan of salvation is centered on the ideas of someone not mentioned in the [Bible], let alone the events that took place in 325-AD.  The inspired word of God endures forever, and there’s no evidence of anyone having to search elsewhere for the truths that lie within it. 

“And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write, ‘These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass.’” Revelation 2:18 (NKJV)

There’s every reason to believe “These things says the Son of God” is referring to Jesus.  The crystal clear evidence of it being so is available for all to see, in the [Bible].  There’s only one reason why the follower of the Anthanasian Creed can’t leave Revelation 2:18 (where Jesus is confessing that He is “the Son of God”) well enough alone.  “The Son is God” was made the cornerstone of a fallacy.  A massive industry has been built upon it.  To deny it would cause dissention, upheaval, and ostracism.  “The Son is God” is a must have for the follower of that creed, even at the expense of [Biblical] truths. 

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.  1 John 4:15 (NKJV)

The sooner followers of that creed realize “the Son is God” was actually birthed in 325-AD, the significance of having to confess “Jesus is the Son of God” will rise to the surface.

Let’s cut to the chase, for obvious reasons, the Anthanasian Creed is a false doctrine.  No one prior to it surfacing in 325-AD had to believe [or else] “the Son is God” to be saved is just one of them.

Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.  And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’  This is the first commandment.  And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’  There is no other commandment greater than these.  So the scribe said to Him, “Well said, Teacher, You have spoken the truth, for there is one God, and there is no other but He.”

In church, or the local market place for that matter, actually it doesn’t matter where one is standing, the inspired word of God instructs us to love God and, our neighbor as yourself (Mark 12:29-32).  There is no other commandment greater than these.”

Here’s some sound [Biblical] advice, if you have to say that something is not found in the [Bible] but the evidence of it being so is, then don’t say the [Bible] is the source of it.  I say this because it’ll be easy to prove man’s understanding of the [Bible] is behind it all.  Simply put be prepared to give the credit where credit is due, but do not give credit where it is not.    

God bless.

Just the Facts


“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

While listening to the local “Christian” radio station I heard, “False religion is characterized by force.”  According to the speaker on the radio there’s only two kinds of religion, “true and false.”  The speaker is a follower of the Anthanasian Creed.  He went on to say, “You’ll know false religions because they’re forcing you to believe something.”  The irony of it all, “Forcing you to believe something” is exactly what the Anthanasian Creed is guilty of doing.  

If you should happen to hear unless one believes the doctrine of the “Trinity” they cannot be saved, it’s coming from a follower of the Anthanasian Creed.  Without the Anthanasian Creed the doctrine of the “Trinity” doesn’t exist.

Whosoever will be saved, before all things, it is necessary that he hold the catholic (i. e. , universal, Christian) faith.”  The first sentence of the Anthanasian Creed.

“This is the catholic (Christian) faith; which except you believe faithfully and firmly, you cannot be saved.”  The last sentence of the Anthanasian Creed.

By the way, don’t look for the words “the Son is God” in the [Scriptures] because you won’t find them there.  They will be found in the Anthanasian Creed however, between the words “Whosoever will be saved” and “you cannot be saved.”  The Anthanasian Creed claims “before all things,” and it can only be traced back to 325-AD.

Then “he said to Jesus, Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.” And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.” Luke 23:42-43 (NKJV)

Would you say “he” that “said to Jesus, Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom” is saved?  I would.

If you’re a follower of the Anthanasian Creed, keep this one thing in mind, any attempt to link that creed to [Biblical] truths will prove one thing, facts aren’t important to you.  Man’s understanding of the [Scriptures] maybe, but not well established facts.  

God bless.

See If You Agree


“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort.” 2 Corinthians 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

What you’re about to read is an E-mail I sent to someone I heard on television.  It’s just as I sent it, except the blank space.  That information was left out intentionally because it could lead to identifying who this individual is, and that’s not my intent.  I have yet to hear back from this individual. 

I’m going to share the letter because it shows when it comes to the salvation of one’s soul, the number of children Mary had is insignificant.  The same can be said for the doctrine of the “Trinity.”  See if you agree.

Dear ______,

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

My name is Jim Masterson.

I was channel surfing when I came across you talking about Mary not having any other children.  I checked out your web-site, I have two questions that I’m hoping you will answer.

Do you believe the person confessing Jesus is the Son of God, the Lord and the Savior of their life, and rejecting the doctrine of the “Trinity” altogether, is saved?

Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’” John 20:17 (NKJV)

After reading John 20:17, would you say Jesus’ brethren’s God and Father and Jesus’ God and Father are one and, the same?

Thanks for taking my questions.

I’m looking forward to hearing back from you.

God bless.

In His Care… Jim

It's Not About The Position One Holds


“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” 1 Peter 1:3 (NKJV)

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all long-suffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” 2 Timothy 4:2-5 (NKJV)

While listening to the local “Christian” radio station I heard, referring to 2 Timothy 4:2-5, “This is for pastors, elders, and church leaders.”  The speaker on the radio is a follower of the Anthanasian Creed. He went on to say false teachers are “not only deceived in their own minds, they’ll deceive others.”  The irony of it all, the Anthanasian Creed is the high priest of all false doctrines.

I wouldn’t lead people into believing a true follower of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus” is determined by the position they hold.  2 Timothy 4:2-5 is crystal clear, don’t become one of those that “will not endure sound doctrine.” 

Paul is instructing young Timothy to “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season.” To “be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist.” 

“That you may with one mind and with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 15:6 (NKJV)

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort.” 2 Corinthians 1:3 (NKJV)

The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is blessed forever, knows that I am not lying.” 2 Corinthians 11:31 (NKJV)

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3 (NKJV)

“We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you.” Colossians 1:3 (NKJV) 

These verses of [Scripture] clearly establish one thing (not that there aren’t more).  Paul would have taught young Timothy to “Preach the word,” saying, their God and Father and Jesus’ God and Father are one and the same.  “The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Preach the word” puts the high priest of all false doctrines to rest.  Neither Paul nor Timothy had a clue as to what was birthed in 325-AD.  The Anthanasian Creeds having to believe [or else] “the Son is God” to be saved.

Proving wrong what the follower of the Anthanasian Creed has been taught to believe is right won’t be a problem. 

God bless.
