E-Mail Question - Wesley, Thank you for a fine lesson Tuesday on Ephesians 5:19. Some brethren think is is ok to sing spiritual songs in their home with a piano, I don't agree. What do you think? Hope you can comment Thursday;
E-Mail Question - Wesley, Why don't you read the Strong's Exhaustive Concordance definition of the two Greek words, #5567 & #5568 without adding your personal comments before or during the reading. Your listeners need to know what the definition of both of these words is without your "word by word" commentary on the definitions. Let the Strong's Exhaustive Concordance speak for itself. Then, after reading them, you can add your comments. Both words are definitely referring to mechanical musical instruments. The definition of both these words in no way implies that the use of mechanical musical instruments is mandatory. The context of the verses in which these words are used in no way implies that everyone who is singing must also be playing a musical instrument; nor does the context imply that everyone present is required to be singing at the same time. Ephesians 5:19, and Colossians 3:16 lists two other types of music: hymns and spiritual songs. Since mechanical musical instruments are permitted for the Psalms, they would also be acceptable in the singing of hymns, and spiritual songs. Try as you may, your arguments against mechanical musical instruments in the New Testament is in vain Wesley. Just one more of the 66/100% of error you inject into your teaching. Sincerely in Christ,;
Caller - Discussion whether the Bible does or does not authorize music;
Caller - Speaking concerning phrase "worshiping God in Spirit and in Truth";
E-Mail Question - I've often wondered do religious people like you all scratch their heads when they read about Jesus attending a man made feast in John 7:1-14. Maybe you all can tell us sometime what your reaction of Jesus is since you are always condemning all others for honoring man-made festivals such as "Christmas". To be consistent, you must condemn Jesus at this point. Will you be consistent or excuse Jesus honoring this man-made event?.

E-Mail Question - Wesley, Nice try with your effort to "explain" away the meaning of "Psalms" in Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16, & James 5:13. You always stress the importance of the word "words", when it suits your purpose, i.e. "baptism"; funny how you said the word "Psalms" has "changed" over time. Ridiculous Wesley. You know full well you were twisting that word to mean what you want it to mean. You are a false teacher Wesley, and your religion teaches heresy in a most subtle way. Both Greek words refer to a literal mechanical instrument, not the "strings of the heart, or vocal cords" as you implied. I did not refer to any Old Testament passages to support the meaning of these two Greek words. Sincerely in Christ,
Caller - If my friend can play and I can play an instrument then we are not suppose to play in church;

December 15, 2011

Host: Wesley Simons - Elizabethton, TN
Panel: Tim Phillips - Dean Of Instructors & TCSOP

E-Mail Question continued from last program - Wesley, Your religion teaches that musical instruments are strictly forbidden by God in church worship. How ridiculous! I call your attention to the word "psalms" found in Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16, and James 5:13. The meaning of the word "psalms" in all three cases, according to Strong's Exhaustive Concordance, indicates that musical instruments (stringed instruments) are to be used. How do you justify teaching that musical instruments are forbidden to be used in church worship when these three verses teach the very opposite? Sincerely in Christ,;
Caller - Please give the verse on the "law was nailed to the cross";
Caller - Checking on Wesley and telling about his year and greetings;
Caller - Talking about the use of expediency especially with the pitch pipe;.

Panel: Adam Horn - Lebanon, VA; Tony Hoss - Kingsport, TN; Tim Phillips - Dean Of Instructors & TCSOP

E-Mail Question - ... To described their entrance in to that covenant Paul uses the figurative expression being "baptized into Moses". Water baptism has no value in achieving cleansing of sin, but it is an act of obedience given great value to demonstrating that you have saved. The physical act of baptism is available to a Christian through participation in the New Covenant. Paul uses a figure of speech being baptized into Christ. That is similar to the language of 1 Corinthians 10:. I don't expect you to read this e-mail verbatim on the air, in matter of fact, I know you won't, but I do expect you to e-mail me and write me back. You can address the subject I covered, but you and I both know you cannot prove any of it wrong. You have a great outlet with your radio broadcast but I pray that you will use it for saving souls!;
Caller - Are you saying that only members of the Church of Christ are going to be saved and go to heaven?;

E-Mail Question - And lastly, Romans 6:3-4, Romans 6 must be read in context with 1 Corinthians 10:1-2; in verse 2 Paul obviously does not mean that crossing the sea bed and walking behind the cloud cleansed him, but these acts were pictures of cleansing available to the Israelites through their participation in the Mosaic covenant;
Caller - If you are not "Saved and Baptized" you will not go to heaven?
Caller - What can you expect when you visit the Church of Christ for the first time?; Do you use anything to help pitch the song?; Do you have a mid-week service?; Where does it teach in the Word of God to have a mid-week service?; If I listen to this station is using instrumental music am I sinning?;

E-Mail Question - So where does the Old Testament teach that the kingdom of God is reserved for those who are born again by the Spirit? Two places in Ezekiel; Ezekiel 36:21-38 - really look at verses 24-24 tell us of God gathering the Jewish people to their land at the beginning of Christ's millennial kingdom and Ezekiel 37:1-14, pay attention to verses 12-14, tells us God raising the saints of Israel from the dead so that they might enter the eternal kingdom of God. This one is what Jesus was referring to in John 3:5;
Caller - The Holy Spirit praying for us;

E-Mail Question - Was David Saved?
Caller - Explain getting "The gift of the Holy Spirit";
E-Mail Question - OK, let me and the Word of God address some of the Scriptures you use; Mark 16:16 - The Scripture is not saying that water baptism is an absolute for salvation. Of course he that believeth should be baptized, no doubt about that. In the verse the writer is taking for granted that the saved person will be baptized. The end of the verse the consequence of being unbaptized is damnation.
Caller - What about the thief on the cross; there was not water around?
Back To E-mail - John 3:5, this verse must be read in context with Jesus' conversation with Nicodemus. It is a tongue-in-cheek quote that goes with Jesus' question in John 3:10 "art thou a Master in Israel?" and "knowest not these things?" Jesus is telling Nicodemus this is nothing new. It is a doctrine he should already know because of his study of Old Testament books.
Caller - What is the verse shows Jesus baptized anyone?
Caller - Who baptized John the Baptist?
Caller - Did John the Baptist have to be baptized like everyone else?
Caller - Why did everyone baptized under John had to be re-baptized in Acts?.

Questions From E-Mails: According to the Bible, one sin caused man's fellowship to be broken from God (Genesis 2:17, Romans 5:12-19). To all those who teach that you can be lost after you are saved, including the speakers on this program, I have this question. Why do you refuse to admit that you have been lost every time that you have disobeyed God's commandment as the examples teach that I have shown? Do you teach that it takes more than one sin to break fellowship with God now as opposed to Adam's time? If so, please show us from God's word the specific amount of sin that causes salvation to be lost. Ifyou cannot produce the amount, then you are only" binding heavy burdens and grievous to be born" on men's shoulders. (Matthew 23:4). If you are going to preach and teach that one can be lost after being saved, then you owe it to your listeners the honesty of practicing what you preach. I have yet to meet ANYONE who teaches this doctrine that has the willingness to admit that they have been lost TWICE. Please produce such a person.

E-Mail - When one is saved the Holy Spirit comes down and indwells you. I know from the moment when I ask Jesus Christ into my heart I became a new creature. Old ways were gone and there was a new me. I wasn't baptize by water for four months later, not because I didn't want to be, I would have on the day I was saved but because the weather was not permitting. I was a young man in my twenties but I was a very sick man with a disease and I could not do that. The disease I have until this day, but by the glory of God I've received an extension of my life here on earth. Just as the Gentiles heard the message in Acts 10 the Holy Ghost descended down upon them and Peter asked "can any forbid water that these should be baptized which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?" and then they were baptized. But wait Wesley, how can the Holy Ghost fall on them before they had been baptized by water. By your definition, they were not saved until that baptism, but the Bible says otherwise.
Caller - The fellow in the hospital what if he could not been baptized would he had gone to hell?
Caller - Confused on what Peter, Paul and Jesus did as baptizing;
Caller - If the Spirit of Life is it in the Word made flesh, Son of God or in the Word of God?;

Caller - Please explain Psalm 127:2;
Caller - One spirit will be taken away during the 1,000 year reign, so how can anyone be saved during this time since their spirit has been taken away?

E-Mail - Hello, My brother and I greatly enjoy Wesley Simons' preaching and teaching and the "Arise To Truth" show. Brother Simons has a great way of speaking and fine command of the English language as well as a intricate knowledge of God's Word. Particularly helpful are the antidotes and similes he often uses in illustrating a Biblical concept or connection. I'm also grateful for Wesley's work on the WVBS' Denominational Doctrine Class and workbook. They have been a great blessing and a tremendous help in our learning about the Bible rightly divided. We listen to the radio program via the MP3 downloads from the website. For your information, my brother lives in Kentucky and I am near the Allentown, PA area. Could you please repost the PDF file of the Sam Morris Tract or place a link to it on the website. The link on the program list page under the show described for August 18th 2011 is broken. Thank you very much. Keep up the great work. We look forward to a day when Arise To Truth can be syndicated to countries across the country.

E-Mail Question - Wesley, Why didn't you read the entire e-mail I sent you on 11/01/2011? The following paragraph from that e-mail makes clear what I meant regarding the 99 & 44/100%. "Second Peter 2:1 speaks of "damnable heresies", and the false teachers who teach such "damnable heresies". I've covered most of these "damnable heresies" in my previous letters. Those "damnable heresies" are the 66/100 % deception which you intermingle with most of the Bible truths that you present. That's what I'm talking about Wesley." Once again you have proven your deceptive nature. Your tactics are born of Satan. Sincerely in Christ,
E-Mail - Why doesn't he mention it in Acts 10:43 when it says to him all the prophets witness that though His name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. What about baptism, Peter? Wesley says you have to be baptized by water, or did Peter say in Acts 2:38 "Repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins" which means to repent and have this act and experience purify you, sanctify you, initiate you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. I'm not putting those word into the Holy Book of God and nor into Peter's mouth, I'm just defining the word and the context it was written not definition in context your using it in.
Caller - Other preachers preaching about being again;
Caller - Where does it say to be baptized in the name of the Lord;

E-Mail Question - ... Your movement is like a Bar of Ivory Soap; 99&44/100ths Percent pure. 99 & 44/100ths Percent Pure makes you 100 percent WRONG Wesley. Your Wolf identity keeps busting through the seams of your Sheep's clothing Wesley.
E-Mail Question - Wesley, First, I must tell you the definition of "baptism" and "baptized" which is the transit verb of "baptism". "Baptism" and act, experience, ordeal by which one is purified, sanctified, initiated or named. Now if you threw in the word "water" to make "water baptism" or baptized by water, it is a Christian sacrament marked by ritual use of water admitting the recipient to the Christian community. Each time you quote the Bible or your kind of salvation, you say you must be baptized for the remission of sins. Of course, you are implying that you must be baptized by water. Nowhere in Acts 2:38 does it ever say water baptism, in fact no where in the whole chapter does it say this. If water baptism is the release of the penalty of sin, then why doesn't Peter mention it in his very next sermon, Acts chapter 3? In Acts 3:19 he says repent ye therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. Why doesn't he mention it in Acts 10:43?;
Caller - A person living in adultery.

E-Mail Question - What a breath of fresh air to hear brethren boldly preaching on the subject of Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage. Too many churches would not touch the topside nor bottom. They fail to realize the same Lord who spake John 12:48 also spoke Matthew 19:9. I believe it all boils down to this question, "How bad do I want to go to heaven?" Keep on preaching the whole counsel of God. "My word shall not return to me void" says Isaiah 55:11.;
E-Mail Question - Wesley, When you make reference to my statement that your teaching is " 99& 44/100% pure" at least have the decency to explain what I meant by that statement. The truth cannot be "almost perfect" Wesley! When "Truth" is only 99 & 44/100% pure Wesley, IT IS 100% A LIE. My first e-mail which uses the 99 & 44/100% analogy was sent on 4/21/2011. I have sent three previous e-mails (5/17/2011, 8/22/2011, & 10/1/2011) telling you what I meant by that statement because, being the deceiver you are, you keep twisting what I said. Maybe you need to go back and very carefully, and slowly read all the e-mails I have sent regarding this statement. Wesley, are you going to "Man-Up" and quit twisting my statement to mean the very opposite of what I meant when I wrote it, or are you going to continue twisting it. Sincerely in Christ,
Wesley, Regarding my e-mails of 10/19/2011 & 10/24/2011, I was just asking for your explanation of these situations. I never said what position I hold on these situations. Instead of simply answering the situations, you chose to attack me with snide remarks on Tuesday's and today's program. You never did read Matthew 5:27-28 in it's entirety on todays program. You just said in so many words that it didn't mean what it literally says. It says what it says Wesley, but you managed to twist it, like you twist other Scripture, so that it fits your false teaching. Sincerely in Christ,;

Discussion: Marriage, Divorce And Remarriage;
E-Mail Question - Wesley, In response to your program of 10/18/2011, please explain the following situations: 1) An unsaved man and woman, both divorced, meet each other and get married. Neither one divorced their former spouse for adultery, or fornication (remember, they are lost, and since divorce is legal in the worlds view they saw nothing wrong with it). They each just decided they didn't love their former spouse anymore. They eventually both get saved, and eventually learn what God says about divorce. Except for their previous divorces, they are living faithful, devout Christian lives. What are they supposed to do? Are they going to Heaven? 2) Now suppose that a man and woman, both newly saved, get divorced from their present spouses. Neither one divorced their spouse for adultery, or fornication. They both just decided they didn't love their former spouse anymore. They later meet one another and get married. They were new Christians and didn't know what the Bible teaches about divorce until after they got married to each other. They too are faithful, devout Christians, except for their previous divorces. What are they supposed to do? Are they going to Heaven? Your false teaching makes it sound like divorce, for reasons other that adultery or fornication, is an unpardonable sin. Sincerely in Christ,
E-Mail Question - Wesley, There are several other divorce situations in addition to the ones I mentioned in my e-mail of 10/19/2011. There are many divorce combinations possible in which one or both parties could be unknowing or uncaring regarding what the Bible teaches. When people divorce for reasons other than fornication/adultery, is there any way they can later repent and receive forgiveness? Your false teaching implies that regardless of their desire to repent later on in life, these people are doomed and condemned to Hell. What about a never married person who marries someone who lied about being previously divorced? Would the never married person be guilty of fornication/adultery? You know that Jesus teaches that if a man (This Bible Truth would apply to a woman looking on a man with lust in her heart as well) looks on a woman with lust in his heart then he has already committed adultery with her. Wesley, what man/woman Saved or unsaved has not committed adultery in his heart. Jesus says it's the same as the physical act Wesley, like it or not. According to Jesus, adultery in the heart is the same as adultery in the flesh. Sincerely in Christ.

E-Mail Question - questions about an email read on 10/4/2011, Dear Wesley: Girls Youth Lakewood Florida! My name is .... I teach a girls youth Bible study for home/schoolers, using your program. We use to use the archives but now we study while the program is on because you have stopped up/loading anymore programs. After listening to your broadcast Tuesday/10/4/2011 I have a few questions for you. 1, If you are a woman do you absolutely have to ware a dress in church, or can you ware anything as long as it is modest? 2, If the close you ware are not good enough to ware to church then why would you ware them out anywhere? 3, The writer or you one said many "revrins" say I can't remember what it was about now, but it brings/up a question in my Bible/study group, where do these men get the Bible authority to call them selves "reverend" if that is what their calling them selves? 4, Just asking did you throw/out the word "reverend", or did the "e-mailer use it just wondering?" Observations: Bill made a statement on todays program: "I don't know anyone that even owns a 3 peace suit" I'm sure he doesn't but here is the names of a few who do. ... . Not fussing on Bill or the speakers their just letting you know their are still preachers that do wear "3 peace suits" even today as strange as that may seem. The problem is they brag about it on their radio programs. Would you comment on this please?
E-Mail Question - Wesley, Your religion teaches that water baptism is one of the mandatory requirements for a person to be saved. Your religion also teaches that a saved person can lose their salvation. Now, if a saved person loses their salvation, that means they become lost once again. Since your religion teaches that water baptism is mandatory for salvation, why doesn't a person who loses their salvation need to be re-baptized in water? After all, if they are not saved, they are lost. If they are lost isn't water baptism one of the requirements for them to be saved? Just how many times can a person lose their salvation? What if they were never really saved the first time Wesley. Looks like you would baptize them every time they get re-saved just to make sure. Sincerely in Christ.

Most preachers say that "if you are a male, and do not ware a 3 peace suit in church your going to hell. If you are a woman and do not ware the most fancy dress then you to are going to hell. While you can dress anyway you want out in the World, but you cannot come to church like that. The Church is a ""Holey"" place and is not to look like the World." Where is this found in the Bible? What do you say to this teaching? Is it true? Think you! Blessings;
E-Mail Question - Dear Wesley: I am writing this for someone else so I am using their words not mine. I am writing this for .... who is not able to write this alone. These words are her's not mine. So please understand. The people who are saying this are saying the building it's self is holy. However, you can dress like the World when your in the World, and that doesn't matter because the world is not holy. "The church building is holy, and it is the temple of God." (REV. ..... ) *One of many REVs.* who believe this. Please don't mention the names on the air, they're just given to so you know what We're referring to. First I thought our bodies were the temple of God not a building somewhere? If this is the case they are trying to go back under the old law where God dwelt in the temple at Jerusalem are they not? At least that is the way it seems to me. What do you think? Pardon my spelling. I'm talking about the "holy land" just so you will know. Written by .... for .... .
Caller - Can a member of the Church of Christ take communion at home if not able to attend the worship service?;

E-Mail Question - Wesley, Why can't Dave, or whoever announces your program, inform the listeners that: "Today's broadcast of "Arise to Truth" has been previously aired.". See how simple that is. You tried desperately to twist Acts 10:47-48 to show that Cornelius and his household were not saved until they were baptized in water. Totally absurd Wesley. Anyway, you agree that the Apostles, and "possibly Cornelius and his household" were baptized with the Holy Ghost. That's one baptism Wesley. Then Peter commanded them to be baptized with water. That's a second baptism Wesley. The Apostles were baptized with water, and then baptized with the Holy Ghost after Christ's ascension. Once again, two baptisms Wesley. Like I have said before Wesley, the "one baptism" in Ephesians 4:5 is the baptism with the Holy Ghost. The baptism with the Holy Ghost was promised by Christ to ALL believers saved after his ascension, John 7:38-39. I have supplied book, chapter, and verse in several previous e-mails so don't go off on that tangent. I doubt you will ever read word for word this e-mail or my e-mails of 9/13/2011 & 9/15/2011, or 9/26/2011 because the Bible verses listed don't agree with your false teaching. Sincerely in Christ;

If you read the context of Acts 1: 1-8, it is clear that the "kingdom " that was being discussed for forty days was a " literal" kingdom. The question asked in verse 6 makes this unmistakably clear. Jesus answer to these men's question about a future " literal" kingdom that includes the nation of Israel betrays the fact that He did not understand their question to be " misguided " or " inappropriate ". Jesus did not " straighten them out " and redirect their " literal " interpretation to a " spiritual " interpretation. Anyone today doing otherwise is not in agreement with the Bible rightly divided.

E-Mail Question - An argument from silence is not an argument at all. Baptismal remissionists continue to add words to Acts 2:37 that are not there; " in order to be saved ". This is profound, considering that this exact phrase IS found in the very same book of Acts, but needs no words to be added to imply a theological doctrine. It stands on it's own as written, and needs no one to imply what it may have said. Why do these apologists neglect a clearly worded question found in the same book in favor of one that needs words to be added in order to ask the same question? The answer is that the clearly stated verse does not support the doctrine of baptismal remission as written. In Acts 16:30 we find a lost Gentile who is under conviction clearly asking what to do to be saved ( no lost Gentiles are saved until after Acts 7 ), and he is given, without hesitation, the answer. The answer does not include water baptism. It is interesting that " patternists " make the argument that Simon Magnus needed no water baptism to be saved the "second" time because he was not told that he needed it. I make the argument, and encourage you to do also, that no lost Gentile in the Book of Acts was ever commanded to be baptized in order to be saved,therefore it cannot be imposed upon them, and that it is time to allow the same argument for the Philippian jailor that you allow for Simon Magnus. I challenge any baptismal remission apologist to bring forth the Scripture that shows a New Testament preacher commanding a lost Gentile to be baptized " in order to be saved ". If it's not there you have no right to impose it upon lost Gentiles today. If we are going to make an argument, then let's make one from words that are ACTUALLY on the page, and not from words that do not appear there (silence).

E-Mail Question - I listened to your show Thursday. It's never convenient for me to call during your show because I listen on my job. I wanted to clearify something. I can't speak for every premillennialist, but all that I know don't deny that the kingdom is now. The kingdom of God has... always existed. Believers began to be born into the kingdom after Christ's resurrection. When I was born again I was born into the kingdom. I'm an ambassador of the kingdom. An ambassador is a representative of one "kingdom" in another "kingdom." What good is an American ambassador in America? An American ambassador represents America in other countries American Embassies. My citizenship is heavenly, but I'm in this present world. Jesus currently is my King of Kings, but satan is the "god of this world." His kingdom is as real as it will ever be, but will one day be "relocated" to earth. That doesn't reduce the existance of the kingdom now, or the fact that I'm born into this kingdom now. What is the 1000 year reign of Christ?? The bible teaches that during this time satan is bound. Is he bound now? Someone once told me in response to this question where Jesus said, "Whatever we bind on earth...," etc. But that doesn't make sense. In Revelation it's an angel that binds satan, not a man. And then, after the 1000 years, satan is loosed again. If not literal, then how should we interpret that? I just wanted you to know that I'm a premillennial believer, AND I'm in the kingdom. Thanks for your time!
E-Mail Question - Wesley, What part of Revelation, Chapter 20 do you not understand in relation to the one thousand year reign of the Lord Jesus Christ here on planet Earth? There is also a one thousand year gap between those two resurrections listed in Chapter 20. There goes the general resurrection theory. Satan is bound in Hell for this time frame, then loosed for a little season. Satan will be loosed after the thousand years and will go about deceiving the nations of the earth for a little season, then he will be finally defeated. Revelation, Chapter 20 is clearly describing the Thousand Year Reign of the Lord Jesus Christ here on Earth. I am sure the Wesley Simmons' "twisted version" of this Scripture will be quite different than what the Bible says....

E-Mail Question - Wesley, You did another amazing job in your false teaching of what Sam Morris was saying in his tract. You know and I know that your presentation of my e-mail regarding what he was actually saying was a work of deception by you. It is clear to anyone who possesses even a small degree of reading comprehension that Sam Morris DOES NOT CONDONE a Christian living a sinful lifestyle. His Tract CLEARLY points that out. You also regularly twist my meaning of the statement I made in a previous e-mail. When I said that you teach 99 & 44/100ths percent truth I was not complementing you! I was pointing out that if truth is not 100% TRUTH, then it is 100% LIE. You are teaching a LIE in ALL of your doctrine because you only present partial truth. That is the Devil's tactic Wesley. Still waiting on your response to my 8/14/2011 e-mail. You subtly took a quick jab at it on your 8/18/2011 program. Sincerely in Christ,

E-Mail Question - Wesley, I missed the first ten minutes of your program on Tuesday 8/2/2011, and I missed about 3 minutes just before you took a song break at 2:30, but I did hear you say that Sam Morris died in 1988, right before you took the song break. If you offered any kind of apology to Sam Morris I must have missed it. I heard nothing on Thursdays, 8/4/2011, program either. I have highlighted below, in red, a question from the reporter to Sam Morris, and I have highlighted Sam Morris' response in red also so there can be no misunderstanding as to Sam Morris' intentions. I still think you owe your listeners an APOLOGY, as well as Sam Morris (His Legacy, I know he is dead Wesley) for misleading people regarding what Sam Morris was really saying in his tract. I am enclosing the portion of the tract which you always quote, along with the part you refuse to quote. You can't say you did not know what it said because you said you have the complete copy of his tract, and one of your cohorts read from the same website I used and gave the address of the web-site out over the radio a few programs ago: [Tract writer is referring]

E-Mail Question - Wesley, You said on your Tuesday 6/21/11 program that angels did not marry. You were discussing the passage in Genesis Chapter Six when you said this. Matthew 22:30 says "... the angels of God in heaven."; Mark 12:25 says "...the angels which are in heaven." Genesis Chapter Six is referring to demons (fallen angels) Wesley. Jude Verse 6 is a reference to these same demons (fallen angels); that's why they are bound unto judgement day. The deception continues on each and every program you broadcast. Sincerely in Christ,;
E-Mail Questions - Wesley, One of your cronies said on Thursday, 6/23/2011 that John Baptist was talking to (or about) the 12 Disciples in Matthew 3:11. There is no way that John Baptist was talking to the Twelve Disciples, or about the Twelve Disciples in Matthew 3:11. The Twelve Disciples had not yet even been chosen by Jesus. It is obvious when Matthew 3:11 is read in context that John Baptist was talking to the crowd of people who were gathered at Jordan to be baptized; he is obviously not talking just about them either. This proclamation would apply to ALL Saved people. Proof positive that the Holy Ghost indwells All Saved people, not just the twelve Disciples. The deception just never stops with you guys Wesley.

E-Mail Question - On the program aired 08/02/2011, the black church of Christ gentleman (forgive me for not knowing his name) implied the conclusion that if you do not keep New Testament commandments, you will be lost. If this is in fact the conclusion, then this is my reply. Everyone that calls themselves a Christian today is continually lost. Here's the reason why; In almost every congregation that Paul wrote to in the New Testament, he gave them this commandment; " greet each other with a kiss" (paraphrased)(Ro. 16:16; 1 Cor. 16:20, 2 Cor.13:12,1 Thess. 5:26,1 Pet. 5:14). No where in the New Testament did Paul state that future congregations were exempt from this commandment. It is all of us who find excuses that are not found in the Bible to exempt ourselves from this commandment today. Based upon the gentleman's assertion that breaking commandments equals becoming lost, then we are to assume that the gentleman and the other speakers on this program are ready to admit that since they continually break this mandated commandment, they are continually lost. Will the speakers accept this outcome, or will they show us where Paul or any other writer said that this commandment is not for us today?

Questions From E-Mails: According to the Bible, one sin caused man's fellowship to be broken from God (Genesis 2:17, Romans 5:12-19). To all those who teach that you can be lost after you are saved, including the speakers on this program, I have this question. Why do you refuse to admit that you have been lost every time that you have disobeyed God's commandment as the examples teach that I have shown? Do you teach that it takes more than one sin to break fellowship with God now as opposed to Adam's time? If so, please show us from God's word the specific amount of sin that causes salvation to be lost. Ifyou cannot produce the amount, then you are only" binding heavy burdens and grievous to be born" on men's shoulders. (Matthew 23:4). If you are going to preach and teach that one can be lost after being saved, then you owe it to your listeners the honesty of practicing what you preach. I have yet to meet ANYONE who teaches this doctrine that has the willingness to admit that they have been lost TWICE. Please produce such a person.

E-Mail Question - Wesley, The deception never ends! I can't believe your "play dumb" response to the caller who asked you to read 1st John 4:4 on Tuesdays (4/5/11) Program! The "he that is in you" part of that verse is talking about the Holy Ghost; you full well know that Wesley! Let's hear you read Romans 8:11; that verse even more strongly says that we are indwelt by the Holy Ghost. Romans 8:9 & 10 are also talking about the Holy Ghost. Don't use the argument that God and Christ are also mentioned as "being in" a Saved person; I know that too Wesley, but the Scriptures I have listed here, and others which I have sent you in previous e-mails makes it clear that it is the Holy Ghost, the Third Person of the Trinity, who Indwells ALL Saved people. Ephesians 1:13-14, and other verses which conclusively prove that every Saved person is permanently Indwelt by the Holy Ghost destroys your teaching that Saved people can lose their Salvation. That's why you dispute what they are really saying;

E-Mail Question - Hello to all at Arise To Truth, I have a little problem and I was hoping you could give me a clue to what to do, here is my story. I am a disabled 43 year old female that has a 13 year old son and a 20 year old daughter. I took in a friend about 6 months ago, they had no where to go plus I could use the help paying all the bills. Well, when he moved in about a week later he quit his job. My daughter went to work and about 2 weeks later she had got my friend a position where she works. Two weeks later my friend quits that job. I love helping people because it brings me joy to know that God would want me to help people in need. I have a big heart and I would not hurt anyone's feeling internally. I don't know what to do because this person says he has no where to go. But I cannot afford for me and my daughter to pay everything while he does nothing but stay in his room. I've asked him numerous times about finding a job and he says he will. But he never does. He's 38 years old and I feel there is a job here for him somewhere. I don't want to kick him out because I would feel like that would be wrong in the sight of God to do that. So I was wanting scriptures in the Word of God to help guide me to what I should do. I don't and wouldn't be mean to anyone. It breaks my heart thinking he has taken advantage of me. I want to do what the Lord wants me to do. Please help. Signed...;
E-Mail Question - Wesley, Today, 3/29/11, on your program you referred to the Bible as the Holy Spirit: You said: "let's see what the Holy Spirit says" or words to that effect. Second Timothy 3:16 says "All scripture is GIVEN by inspiration of God...". You subtly imply on almost every program that the Word of God is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Ghost moved holy men of God to speak, and record God's Word but the written Word is NOT the Holy Ghost; it is the product of Holy Ghost inspiration. God's Word is plenary, and infallible. Jesus Christ IS the Word, and the Word was "made flesh". God has magnified his Word above ALL his name, Psalm 138:2. I know your movement believes that no one today is literally indwelt by the Holy Ghost, but you are too deceitful to admit it. Rather, you imply that the Holy Ghost is God's written Word.

Caller - Commenting on Demas and how he changed masters;
Caller - If Jesus was God and Jesus prayed then when He prayed He would be praying to another god. Who did He pray to being manifested in the flesh?;
E-Mail continued - You always rail on Sam Morris when the "once Saved , always Saved" topic comes up. I don't have the "tract" you referred to but I dare say you are twisting it out of context. If he believes what you say he believes, the way you say he believes it, then he is wrong. A Saved person cannot continue in a life of sin without God's judgment eventually falling upon him, possibly even physical death; but NO sin a Saved person commits is going to make him lose his Salvation, 1st Cor 5:5, and 1st John 5:16. Sincerely in Christ,
Caller - If a man lives ungodly there is no reason that he can be saved;
Caller - One Scripture that says if we sin "there remains no more sacrifice";

Continued discussion of e-mail - Wesley, Almost every time the topic of baptism comes up you will ask people if they have been baptized with the Holy Ghost. Then you will ask if they have been baptized with water. Then you triumphantly proclaim that they have been baptized TWICE. What's your point? How can you say there are two baptisms and then turn right around and say there is only one baptism? There is in fact only one baptism required for Salvation and that is the baptism with the Holy Ghost. That is the baptism Ephesians 4:5 is referring to;
Continuing e-mail - The Apostles received the Holy Ghost after Christ's ascension, and the Bible makes it undeniably clear that all people Saved after the ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ are Indwelt by (baptized with) the Holy Ghost. Baptism with the Holy Ghost is most definitely Baptism. Baptism with the Holy Ghost is the only possible Baptism that Ephesians 4:5 could be talking about. Water baptism is an ordinance of God which outwardly signifies a Saved person's Salvation, and the Saved person's identity with Christ's death, burial and resurrection.
Caller - Explain when Jesus told Nicodemus "you must be born again" and when Jesus told Peter "when you are converted strengthen the brethren" and then the Bible talks about people being saved. When is a person saved, Jesus said "endure to the end and you will be saved"?;
Caller - We extend an invitation that is misleading just a bit.

E-Mail Question - My friends, to say that Romans 6:3 and Galatians 3:27 teaches water baptism, you have to be on drugs, the key word is "INTO". There is no preacher has the power to place anybody into Christ. That is a reference to the Holy Spirit. Three times in Scripture it tells us Abraham believed God and it was imputed to him for righteousness. Praise God he put on my account the righteousness of Jesus. So there again how do we become children of God? Galatians 3:26 by faith. Baptism is after salvation to show the world that I have died with Christ, buried with Christ and resurrected with Christ to walk in newness of life. Baptism is a picture of salvation. If I show you a picture of my children, that's not really my children, that is a picture of them. Same with salvation. Ephesians 2:8-9 "for by grace are ye saved through faith, and not of yourselves, it is a gift of God and not of works." That is so simple to understand my children can read it and understand it. Tell me how you all receive a gift at Christmas? Do you say, "let me do some kind of work for it?" Or do you receive it and say "Thank you?" That is how salvation is. I am trusting in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ and Him alone plus nothing or minus nothing. I pray that God will open your blinded eyes. Please do not use James to teach faith plus works for salvation. Paul teaches salvation by faith. James teaches a faith that is evident by my works. Outward evidence of the inward work of God.

E-Mail - Do any of the preachers on the program or in the surrounding area, Churches of Christ, visit the unsaved people in the hospitals or nursing homes and present the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ? How tragic it is to tell a person even if they are being drawn by and convicted by the Holy Spirit and do exactly what Romans says to do in chapter 10, that their baptism is not complete without being baptized. How ridiculous! So according to you folks people who are not physically able or mentally able to be baptized, they cannot obtain salvation. How tragic that is to a lost soul facing eternity. The last time I read the Bible, it told me in Romans 10 verse 9 - "believe in thine heart" not in heart and body, Romans 10:10 - "for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness", there again not heart and body, Romans 10:13 - no reference to baptism; John 3:16 - "whosoever believeth" no reference to baptism, John 3:18 - "he that believeth on him is not condemned" does not say believeth and baptized, John 11:25-26 baptism not mentioned, Acts 10:43 baptism not found, Acts 26 testimony of Paul to Agrippa, Romans 1:16-17 maybe it would be helpful for the program preachers to study Romans chapter 3 - baptism not even in the thoughts of the Apostle Paul. By the way, it says by faith, to God be the glory no boasting, within ourselves friends, Romans 4:24 - "if ye believe on Him". The question is how do we believe on Him? By faith, not faith and body.

I've never heard such a blatant misrepresentation of what was actually written;

E-Mail Question - Another thought. You said the word rapture is not in the Bible, and truly it is not. That doesn't mean there won't be a rapture. The word Bible is not in the Bible, but we have Bibles! You won't find a church called "Church of Christ" in Scripture. There is a "Church of God" mentioned. Then there is John the Baptist. John was an independent, fundamental Baptist, so, "Independent, Fundamental, Baptist Church" is closer to being Biblically correct than "Church of Christ";

E-Mail Question - Reference your Tuesday, 25 January 2011 program; You need to read all of Romans 11 and then defend your statement that the Church replaces Israel! Nothing could be further from the truth! Israel will be "grafted" back into the good olive tree (Christ).

E-Mail Question - Replacement theologians err in Galatians 6:16 the same way that Salvation by works apologists err in Acts 2:38; they demand that a word nleans something that it does not. Both the words" for" and " and" are indefinite prepositions that cannot be interpreted to be definite and specific as some affirm. Pauls historical use of the word for Israel in the New Testament will not allow for this word" and" to mean" even", as only the N.I.V. translates. This evidence for Israel and the Church to be one and the same is not to be found in the Bible, and this one verse is not an exception. As for the word " for" in Acts 2:38, Peter had a Greek word at his disposal that would mean "in order to obtain", a definite preposition, should he choose to use it. It is the Greek word " hina ". and means" in order to obtain". Peter did not mean to say what certain people affirm he said here, as his use of this word " for "demonstrates. Isn't it troubling that an entire demonination (church of Christ) is founded upon a conclusion in Acts 2:38 that the writer did not conclude?
