|BUT IT HAS HAPPENED TO THEM
ACCORDING TO THE TRUE PROVERB... A DOG RETURNS TO HIS OWN VOMIT AND A SOW HAVING WASHED TO
HER WALLOWING IN THE MIRE... 2 PETER 2:22.
OH NO!... WHAT HAS HAPPENED?... IT!
After reading Terry Arnold's (Dip, Bib & Min, Dip. Teaching, Author) view
concerning ... justification, Sanctification and Glorification regarding Christians, sin
and sinless living, I am even more convinced that man and his brain power refuses to let
holy ghost teach them.. that could be detrimental to the souls of gullible hearers and more
so the teacher.
Mr Terry Arnold of T. A. Ministries starts his four page explanation by asking..
what has been the orthodox historical teaching on this?
I would prefer to know what the true proverb says under the leading of holy
ghost. After all, orthodox means.. accepted view of the people and men's historical finds
and statements have more flaws in them than a plastic diamond. What does Jesus say?.. 1
Peter 4:11, 1 Corinth 1:25-29.
Men and women since the day one have always looked to cement a path that would get them to
heaven regardless to what God says ... you are deceiving yourself and all who would be
stupid enough to listen.. Luke 8:21.
The key word in the scripture that St Peter wrote is .. returns!.. it is
not talking about heathens, professors of Christianity or those who never did have
salvation but it is talking about those who have made a wilful personal decision to go
back to perdition/ruin/the world. A people who knew the truth, the Lord, the power of holy
ghost and the consequences but went anyway back to the vomit.. are not Christians
called salt? Matt 5:13.
Peter makes it very clear that some were men and some were women.. dogs and sows. One man
from the group called the brethren said to me where in the holy bible has God ever called
His people dogs?.. if you open your holy bible at the writings of Isaiah 56:10,11 ...
you will see.
Mr Arnold uses the words .. legalism, sectarianism and judgementalism to smit
those who would preach and teach holiness unto God as a requirement to see God. I have
always come to find that the three terms that T.A. used are common words among .. people
pleasers, compromisers, secret sin lovers and spiritual ignoramuses who have more praise
for their bible college and bible Dean than they do for Gods word or His only begotten
Son.. Hebrews 12:14-17.
Mr Arnolds final words on the issue were .."May we repent of and hate sin."
Does Mr Arnold live in a yellow submarine or what?.. almost all OSAS theologians
overlook the one same point if we don't repent and if we don't have a hatred for sin we
will automatically go back to perdition, just as the word of God tells us through Paul the
apostle... departing from the living God?. Please open your holy bible at Hebrews 3:12
and also Titus 2:14,15 and just before I go also remember what St Paul said ..he
kept the faith .. 2 Timothy 4:7.
