Moriel’s Dispute with David Nathan A Chronological Sequence of the Evidence
The two videos below clearly shows that Jacob Prasch was in complete agreement with David Nathan’s teaching on salvation in the Millennium. The very charge of heresy that he accused David of, he makes himself guilty of.
Having exhausted every avenue for dialogue, mediation and reconciliation we now publish these videos exposing some of the falsehood perpetuated against David Nathan by Moriel and associates. These videos are evidence to the carnality and ungodliness that permeates large sections of the Christian Church to all our shame but above all, the disrepute it brings to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus.

Sin brought man into slavery but Jesus was redeemed the Church.Why then is the Church bound by sin and slavery? Jesus has not just bought salvation for man but a much greater work , called redemption. Redemption will transform us from sinners to sons and daughters. Redemption will transform us from carnal and soulish believers into spiritual men and woman who know their God and walk in the power of His resurrection. Click here to download PDF.

A Response to questions from an adherent to Eternal Securityi was asked recently to answer four questions from a sincere brother who believes in Eternal Security or Once Saved Always Saved. Eternal Security has become a very hotly contested position in the Church and I thought that my response to these questions would benefit those who are either struggling with this doctrine or are being confronted with it and want a biblical response.1.If someone truly can lose their salvation……what would happen? 1 Timothy 4:1-2 & 2 Timothy 4:10; They would return to the world and lust after it and have no desire to return to the Lord.Note 1 Timothy 4:1-2 “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron.”Paul says that some will depart from the faith which means that they must have been in the faith not just church goers which was unheard of in the early church. Many make the in correct assumption that the early church had folk milling around the edges, not saved but attending. This is preposterous to even assume as early believers were slaughtered, pillaged and severely persecuted. There was no place for spectators and half-hearted individuals, becoming a Christian would often result in severe persecution and even death.2.Would the Holy Spirit leave them? Absolutely, as we are born again of the water and the Spirit, when we willfully choose to forsake the Lord and refuse to return then He will withdraw His Spirit from the us. In Psalm 51:11, David pleads with God not to take His Holy Spirit from him. Note also Isaiah 63:10-11 where God rejects Israel even though the Holy Spirit was in and among them. God does not change nor does He deal differently with men. What He did to those who forsook Him in Israel, He will do to those in the Church. 3.How would their life change? As mentioned previously. They would turn against God and His Word and go back into the world with no restraint as it is written in 2 Peter 2:20-22, “For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them. 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." 4.Would they still have any passion for Jesus? None whatsoever. It is the Holy Spirit who draws us to the Father through Jesus. Once He forsakes a man that man will have no desire to return plus he could never come back to salvation as the writer of Hebrews says, Hebrews 6:4-8, “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame. For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.”
Exposing the errors of the Tulip of Reformed Theology Reformed theology is gaining much ground in the western church and many are being swept away from the simplicity of the truth of the gospel into the error and deception of this dangerous false doctrine. Sadly, the proponents of this false gospel tend to be intellectuals who of all believers should understand the very basics of sound biblical hermeneutics yet refuse to apply it when postulating their error. However, despite the obvious and very poor hermeneutic of the advocates of Reformed Theology, most believers are ill equipped to refute or debate these modern heretics who preach a different Jesus and a strange gospel that scripture just does not support or confirm.The purpose of my article is to equip believers who are confronted with reformed doctrine, with scriptures that refute and contradict the five tenants of what has come to be termed Five Point Calvinism. The acronym, T.U.L.I.P has been conceived by reformed theologians to organise the five main points of their understanding of the gospel of salvation or as they call it, the doctrine of grace. Each of the letters represent one of these five points, which are;T = Total DepravityU = Unconditional ElectionL = Limited AtonementI = Irresistible GraceP = Preservation of the SaintsFor any doctrine to stand the scrutiny of scripture and be regarded as legitimate, every verse of scripture that speaks into that specific subject must be taken into account in order to form a systematic and accurate doctrine. Simply put, one cannot exclude a verse or verses that contradict a doctrine that one wants to form just for the sake of expediency. To do this is to create a false or severely flawed doctrine that will lead to error in not only ones personal theology and understanding but to all who are exposed to it. This is what Reformed Theology has done and what I want to expose by simply quoting scripture that contradict each of the five tenants of the TULIP.Sound theology should look like this;And certainly not like this;According to one of their own theologians, Reverend Barry Gritters, these five doctrines can be best understood as follows. (http://www.prca.org/pamphlets/pamphlet_41.html) I have emphasised the blatant errors in his doctrinal statements in bold type.T - Total Depravity“Only God can make us alive and God does that sovereignly – without our aid, without our asking. From beginning to end, "Salvation is of the Lord" (Jonah 2:9)…” (Rev Barry Gritters)Yet the Bible teaches that we are to call upon the Lord in Psalm 55:16; Psalm 116:13 and Romans 10:12-13. To name just a few verses.U - Unconditional Election“God chooses to give some people eternal life, without looking for anything good in them as a condition for loving and saving them.” (Rev Barry Gritters)Yet the Bible teaches that God desires all to be saved in 1 Timothy 2:3-4; Ezekiel 18:23&32; John 3:17 and 1 Timothy 4:10. To quote just a few verses.L - Limited Atonement “The Bible says that Christ laid down His life for His sheep, and only them. John 10:11.The ATONEMENT is LIMITED to the elect of God. Every sin of every one of Christ's sheep is paid for. Those sins and those alone have been paid for. That is the only gospel because that is the Bible.” (Rev Barry Gritters)Yet the Bible teaches that Jesus paid for the sins of all men in John 1:29 and 1 John 2:2, to quote just two verses.I - Irresistible Grace “That grace is irresistible. That means that if God gives grace to you, there is nothing in the world that you can do to resist it and thwart God's intention to take you to heaven.” (Rev Barry Gritters)Yet the Bible teaches that we can reject His grace through disobedience and wickedness in Hebrews 12:15; 2 Corinthians 6:1-2 and Galatians 5:4, to again quote just a few verses.P - Preservation of the Saints “The last of the five points of Calvinism teaches that God preserves His people so they can never be lost. To put it simply, it means this: "Once you are saved, you are always saved.” (Rev Barry Gritters)Yet the Bible teaches that we can lose our salvation in 2 Peter 2:18-22; Hebrews 6:4-8; Hebrews 12:25 and Hebrews 3:6&12 and there are many other verses that debunk this error of once saved always saved.I have only very briefly highlighted the errors of the TULIP of Reformed Theology, there are many more but I trust that the above will be of use to those who are having to stand their ground against this false doctrine.
