In this world of seemingly no absolutes, the word of God stands unchanged. There has been a mass forsaking of holiness standard in our churches. Let me give you some scriptures about holiness
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.
For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.
But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
But as he who hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
1st. John 2:15-17
Love not the world, neither the thing that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.
1st. John 2:3-4
And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
Ye adulterers and adultresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
1st. Peter 4:18
And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
This is just a few of the many scriptures that tell us that holiness living is a requirement, if we plan on being saved. Now this worldly church system says it dosent matter how you live, cause Jesus paid for your sins. But on the contrary Romans 6: 1-2 ... Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? God forbid... Those whose choose to live a sinful lifestyle and still be religious will have a rude awakening on the day of judgment. Whosever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire. The Bible will be your judge, for the Word is God, John 1:1. Can you open up the pages of this book of life and find your name written therein? How? By obedience to he word of God. Do you think God is going to excuse your adultery? How about Fornication? How about idolatry? such as pagan holidays and roman catholic doctrines. How about immodest dress? it is laciviousness. How about whosoever loveth and maketh a lie? such as preaching a satanic trinity doctrine or telling your children bunny and Santa lies??? Strait is the gate, narrow is the way that leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. The complaint department is downstairs. Its a little warm and crowded down there.
I sometimes spend hours on the web trying to tell of the Salvation of Jesus. One of the most troubling thing I find is those LYING doctrines that "Leave OUT" important parts of Gods message.
All you have to do is believe and you shall be saved.
All you have to do is repent then you are saved.
That one does not have to be baptized. (this seems to be the worse one as
they do not realize that baptism is for the REMISSION OF SINS, they do not
know that NO sin shall enter therein and we must have them remitted in
That one does not have to be immersed in water during baptism
The important NAME of JESUS is not used, only titles.
Yes, there are scriptures that say this, but they do NOT mean that you can omit or leave out the teachings that are in Acts2:38, they cannot stop there.
True Salvation is believing, repentance, being baptized in Jesus name by immersion and being filled with the Holy Ghost speaking in other tongues Acts2:38. And then going on to live a holy life before God.
I'm posting this so you can be aware of the fox we are fighting as he tries to be slick, and yet SOULS MAY BE LOST by this nonsense because many people are following these demons.
I hope you join me in this fight for the Lord today. God Bless :)
I have a few catholic questions.
1. Which one of the statues has more power, and are they specialized? IE Would you bother the Mary statue for a minor car repair problem, or would a lesser idol work?
2. Do they kiss on the other bigger idols, like they do the little cross idol? And does the "call no man father" guy wipe the bigger idols between kisses like the cross idol?
3. Can the priests turn other food items into god, or does it just work on cookies?
4. When the priests turn cookies into god, does it act as a preservative? (possible uses in the food industry, much money could be made for the poor)....
5. If a shrine has more than one Mary idol, will they function simultaneously?
6. If the Mary idol is more powerful, and they will function simultaneously, why not just use bunches of Mary idols?
7. Do bigger idols have more power than the little bitty ones?
8. Do ceramic idols have more "oomph" and "whammy" than plastic ones?
9. Do the Mary idols have more "zing", "oomph" and "whammy" than the other idols?
10. Since your priests can turn wine into blood, can that blood be used for transfusions? Think of the lives that could be saved! Or for cloning?
Thanks for sharing with us regarding the intimate details of your devout faith and worship of little thingies and grand ceramic creations.

I had a fairly normal childhood I guess. My parents were divorced when I was about 7. I grew up loving wrestling and rock n roll. By the time I was 11 I was experimenting with drugs, witchcraft, and was addicted to satanic music. But I had always been taken to church all my life, in various denominations. By the time I was 12, I was having suicidal thoughts and deep depression. It just hit me that if didnt get ahold of God I was going to end up Dead quick. So one night at a trinitarian "pentecostal" church I repented. I mean REPENTED! I went home that night and tore down the posters all over my walls and broke all my heavy metal cds. The next day people said "what happend to you?". They could see an immediate change in me. My teen age years were like most, lots of ups and downs, tempations and giving in to those temptations. But I always knew that I was going to serve God and that deep down there was something special God had for me. When I was 15 I began to study the Bible alot and about different types of chuches. I was drawn to holiness. I began to seek out sanctification and holy living. I began preaching in the Church of God denomination at age 16. About that time a gradual change was happening about how I veiwed God, that Jesus was the one to pray to. I had read some apostolic literature then Bam! It hit me like a ton of bricks. Jesus Christ is God and I have been so blind! I got the revelation of the oneness of God. I new about a Jesus Name church about 50 miles away that an elderly lady had invited me to quite some time before. I knew she lived holy and had prayed fo me. One night I walked in that little backwoods Jesus Name church in south east Ky. That Lady turned around from her seat and pointed to me and said "I knew you would be here!" I looked around and people were shouting, praying, speaking in tongues, and praying for each other. I wanted what they had. I already knew the Holy Ghost was real, I already believed the oneness of God, I aready knew about baptism in Jesus Name. So just a few times of going there I was determined to get the Holy Ghost. I read Acts 2 and Acts 8 and I believed if I would obey the scripture to be baptized in Jesus name that God would give me the Holy Ghost. I called that pastor up one sunday and told him I wanted to be Baptized. He said come on down right now. So we went down there, way back in that holler, on a cold sunny day in February. I was Baptized in Jesus name at Slick Ford creek, near Monticello KY. I went on to service that night just feeling God like never before. I was up on the plat form playing on a guitar when they began to sing. I started to worship and got lost in the presence of God. Im not sure how it happend but I got that guitar off and was standing in front of the the alter. A brother put his hands on my head and I lifted mine and said Jesus! Then all I know is I hit the floor rolling and praising God in ways I couldnt understand or even control. I tried to get up and could not, I tried to stand and could not, I tried to speak normal but all I could say was Jesus. I new was changed and Jesus (the Holy Ghost) came in that night. Then came the rejection and persecution! I told my boss (the preacher who had baptized me in the titles when I was 12) that I got the Holy Ghost. He said that good. I said yes, but it what else I did that you wont agree with. I got baptized in Jesus name, I said. He looked with surprize and disgust. Then came the questions, the interogation in preachers offices, the losing friends, the being banished from pulpits, even my own family was against me. I was alone, But I hung on to that experience that night, I knew what I got was real and right. I got my strength from the word of God. Then God placed some knew people in my life that made me feel accepted again. I began to preach the One God, Apostolic, tongue talking, Holiness message and been preaching it ever since. Thats been over 10 years ago. I wouldn't trade this Jesus name, Holy Ghost salvation for anything in the world. Thanks be to God!
in Jesus name,

I posted a message of truth with scripture rightly divided and some vile reprobate devils attacked me for teaching truth on my own page (but no one really has a page or a group because the devils running Facebook can block you at their whim.) I responded to the reprobate devils with more truth and they managed to get some corrupt filth at Facebook to censor my replies to them and to block me from posting for 7 days and block me even from communicating privately with friends. I have spent these 7 days posting in other places and promoting I now ask all real Christians reading this to agree with me in prayer that the Lord would reward those reprobate filth according to their works and really bring it home to them along with those at Fbook who cooperated with them.
It is very important to be aware of the corruption and anti-Christian and anti-conservative nature of Facebook. If you are building on Facebook you are building your house on sand. You could lose your ability to communicate with your friends with no notice at some devil's whim. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. You cannot trust Facebook. I know this to be true. That is why I post most of my material at http://biblefolk.com/forum/4 and then just share parts of it on FB.
Please take a moment and share this post around Facebook and warn others about Facebook censorship and corruption.

And it is because of God’s mercy, His favor, His kindness, His blessing and His compassion that He has provided mankind with a salvation plan! We are saved by God’s mercy. We do not deserve the blessings God has given us.
Ephesians 2:4-9---But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-- not by works, so that no one can boast.
Baptism in no way minimizes or nullifies God’s grace as some critics argue that baptism does. They make this argument because they do not understand the role baptism plays in God’s salvation plan. Baptism in Jesus name-confirms and verifies God’s grace to us! God’s grace is manifested in baptism- READ MK 16:16; I Peter 3:20-21! after we are baptized in Jesus name and received the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38), His grace continues to cover us.
Notice this passage says:
God made us alive in Christ when we were dead—and this is God’s grace.
God raised us up with Christ
God expresses His grace to mankind by giving us Christ Jesus
God’s grace is through faith.
When did God make us alive when we were dead, and raise us up with Christ? What is Paul talking about?
Romans 6:3-5 describes just such a scenario-- when we were dead in sin and God raised us up with Christ:
“Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his”.
An Analogy of Grace and Faith :
Here is an analogy that may help to put what we have learned into perspective. Suppose Smith tells Jack "Meet me at the bank tomorrow morning at 11:00 A.M. and I will give you $2,000." (This is a condition for receiving the gift.) If Jack really believes Smith, he will appear at the appointed place and time. (Faith necessarily produces trust, response, and reliance) If Jack shows up, has he thereby earned the money? Of course not, because the money is a free gift. Yet his appearance is a necessary condition that must be met in order to receive the gift. (Grace on Smith's part, faith on Jack’s part.) If Jack fails to show up, he will not receive the gift and the responsibility for the failure will fall totally upon him. (Lack of faith in the promise.)
Similarly, we must respond to God in faith by seeking repentance, remission of sins at water baptism according to Acts 2:38-41; Acts 10:44-48, Therefore Jesus said, “He that believeth and baptized shall be saved” (Mk 16:16) also read I Peter 3:20-21. If we do, God will graciously grant our petition, and we will receive salvation totally as a free gift and not as an earned right. If we do not respond in obedience to God's Word, we will not receive salvation, and the blame will rest totally upon us ( Read Mark 16:16; Gal 1:8-9; Acts 2:37-41; Acts 19:1-7).
The Bible says that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). And when we had sinned and were dead, and had received only what we deserved, God in His mercy and grace provided a way for us to be saved—He robed Himself in flesh and gave of Himself as the Son of God to reconcile the world to Himself (II Corinthians 5:19). The one True God of the Old Testament, the great Creator of the universe, humbled Himself in the form of man so that man could see Him, understand Him, and communicate with Him. He made a body for Himself, called the Son of God ( I Tim 3:16;I Isaiah 44:6).Hence, without Jesus, baptism is meaningless- Therefore, we must be baptized in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ! Jesus name baptism is necessary. We know that Jesus name is the only saving name given in the New Testament ( Acts 4:12). Baptism in Jesus name, coupled with faith, is the means by which we become unified with Christ. Baptism is how we are “put into” Christ( Gal 3:27).
We should be grateful and thankful beyond measure that God has provided a salvation plan for us who deserve nothing but death.
Remember! To “believe in Jesus” means to believe the gospel message, and baptism is a part of that gospel message- Mark 16:16; John 3:5; Acts 2:38-41!
If we say we are not saved by baptism in Jesus name, we are saying we are not saved by God’s salvation plan ( Read Luke 24:47; Mk 16:16; Acts 22:38; 2:38-39).
God wants everyone to be saved and to know the truth. It is by God’s abundant mercy and grace that he provides us with a way out of the darkness. His salvation plan is available to every human being! His invitation is extended to everybody and it is by His grace that anyone gets an invitation at all. Yet even though His salvation is open to all, we must each, individually, respond to this invitation, to His grace, and to His call. We do this by believing, by repenting, by confessing our faith in Christ and by being baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, receiving gift of the Holy Spirit- Acts 2:38; John 3:5! Then in Christ you can live forever.
The word of God is not a dead letter. It is “living and powerful” (Hebrews 4:12). Although our flesh is like grass that withers away, through the “living and powerful” word of God we can live forever. Let us hold fast the “word of life” (Philippians 2:16).
“Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). Jesus said: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away” (Matthew 24:35). “The word of our God stands forever” (Isaiah 40:8). Today we are commanded to obey the gospel of Christ and continue in the apostles doctrine ( Acts 2:38-47; John 3:5;. Rom 10:10; Rev 2:10; Acts 2:42; 2 Jn 9). Do this and live forever.
LIVE FOREVER-obey ACTS 2:38!
Bro Paogin Mangte
Apostolic Theological Seminary New Delhi,India.
General Pastor- OAPCI India.
Addressed to :
All Oneness Apostolic Ministers, Pastors, brothers and sisters,
Greetings to all in the mighty name of Lord Jesus Christ.
I am Abraham and doing ministry in Mumbai, India.
With me, following brothers are working :
1. Jackson Fernandez (formerly a catholic believer) Mumbai.
2. Manoj Peter (formerly a catholic believer) from South India.
3. Sunil Nair (Hindu convert) Mumbai.
4. Raghunathan (Hindu convert) South India.
My main objective is to preach gospel, all over India and abroad as the Spirit of God leads.
Our main focus is to spread the gospel in the unreached areas and rural and villages remotely.
Since spreading the gospel in India, day-by-day tough and difficult, we request all your supports for our ministry, since we all are part of Christ’s body. As you know when weaker parts of body need attention and care, I urge all you have to extend your whole hearted support for Indian ministry. Trinitarians are flourishing like anything with the support of foreigners pouring in money for false doctrine’s prosperity.
However, the Oneness Apostolic ministry’s growth is snail phase. During this period, our present requirement is a vehicle which can accommodate 8-10 people, to travel together to villages for spreading the gospel. Initially, we require 4 scootters, so that we can accommodate 8 people for 50-60 kilometers journey.
I believe and trust that, you will consider my request for this noble cause and stretch out your hands for helping the ministry.
My only wish and desire is to spread the Oneness Apostolic truth, all over the world without compromise, for which your voluntary support and prayer earnestly solicited.
You can check my credentials with Pastor Steve Winter,who have published a book titled “BIBLICAL SOUND DOCTRINE” recently, in Amazon Kindle, written by me. I am thankful to him and his wife Nancy Winter’s for their wonderful and untiring efforts dedicated for publishing a book of mine, which I never thought in my mind. He found me faithful in Lord’s ministry.
Once again thanking you for your kind and favourable support and prayer for the Indian Gospel Ministry.
With kind regards,
Bro. Abrahamkutty P.G.
