  • The people being discussed are those who have escaped the pollutions of the world.These people become entangled in them again and overcome. We are not talking about isolated acts of sin here. We are talking about people who are completely overcome with worldly cares again. They have “given up” their salvation.How do we know they have given it up? We read that the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. We read that it would have been better for them to have never known the way of righteousness than to know it and turn from it.

    1. 1. COMMON SENSE QUESTIONS A “CHURCH OF CHRIST” PREACHER CANNOT CLEARLY ANSWER<br />BY DAVID MARTIN – SOLID ROCK BAPTIST CHURCH<br />
    2. 2. COMMON SENSE QUESTIONS A “CHURCH OF CHRIST” PREACHER CANNOT CLEARLY ANSWER<br />BY DAVID MARTIN – SOLID ROCK BAPTIST CHURCH<br />The religious sect known as the &quot;Church of Christ&quot; has many peculiar and aberrant doctrines that are contrary to the word of God. It is a most deceptive and dangerous cult. Their teaching of baptismal regeneration is an age-old heresy that has damned millions to hell, and is still doing so today. The idea that they are the one, true and restored church of Jesus Christ puts them in the same league with the Mormon and Roman Catholic churches.<br />

The idea that they are the one, true and restored church of Jesus Christ puts them in the same league with the Mormon and Roman Catholic churches.<br />But this I confess to you, that according to the Way which they call a sect, so I worship the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the Law and in the Prophets. (Acts 24:14)<br />
    4. 4. COMMON SENSE QUESTIONS A “CHURCH OF CHRIST” PREACHER CANNOT CLEARLY ANSWER<br />BY DAVID MARTIN – SOLID ROCK BAPTIST CHURCH<br />The religious sect known as the &quot;Church of Christ&quot; has many peculiar and aberrant doctrines that are contrary to the word of God. It is a most deceptive and dangerous cult. Their teaching of baptismal regeneration is an age-old heresy that has damned millions to hell, and is still doing so today. The idea that they are the one, true and restored church of Jesus Christ puts them in the same league with the Mormon and Roman Catholic churches.<br />But this I confess to you, that according to the Way which they call acult, so I worship the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the Law and in the Prophets. <br />
    5. 5. COMMON SENSE QUESTIONS A “CHURCH OF CHRIST” PREACHER CANNOT CLEARLY ANSWER<br />BY DAVID MARTIN – SOLID ROCK BAPTIST CHURCH<br />If you are a member of this &quot;church&quot; or have been influenced by its teachings, we challenge you to ask your preacher the questions that follow, then get your King James Bible out, open it up, and ask the Holy Spirit to show you the TRUTH (John 16:13). If you have never been saved in the Bible sense, for heaven&apos;s sake, do not mistake being &quot;washed in the baptistry of the church&quot; for being washed in the blood of Christ.<br />
    6. 6. COMMON SENSE QUESTIONS A “CHURCH OF CHRIST” PREACHER CANNOT CLEARLY ANSWER<br />BY DAVID MARTIN – SOLID ROCK BAPTIST CHURCH<br />If you ask one of these &quot;preachers&quot; any of the questions in this tract, you won&apos;t get a straight answer due to their &quot;screwball&quot; theology. You&apos;ll have them in &quot;hot water,&quot; &quot;swimming in circles,&quot; trying to explain their heretical positions. They&apos;ll be &quot;hopping all over the pond&quot; because they can&apos;t stay too long in one spot without sinking in the mire of their false doctrines.<br />
    7. 7. COMMON SENSE QUESTIONS A “CHURCH OF CHRIST” PREACHER CANNOT CLEARLY ANSWER<br />BY DAVID MARTIN – SOLID ROCK BAPTIST CHURCH<br />Don&apos;t YOU wind up being baptized in the &quot;Lake of Fire&quot; by accepting a &quot;waterworks&quot; based plan of salvation and rejecting salvation by grace through faith in the finished work of Christ. (Matt. 3:11; Rev. 20:15; Eph. 2:8,9; Rom. 5:9; Rom. 11:6).<br />
    8. 8. COMMON SENSE QUESTIONS A “CHURCH OF CHRIST” PREACHER CANNOT CLEARLY ANSWER<br />BY DAVID MARTIN – SOLID ROCK BAPTIST CHURCH<br />QUESTION #1.<br />According to the history of the &quot;Church of Christ,&quot; God used certain men to &quot;restore&quot; the New Testament Church in the early 1800&apos;s. Where was the true New Testament church before then? Jesus said that the gates of hell would not prevail against His church (Matthew 16:18). What happened to the church and where was the truth it was responsible for preaching before God restored it?<br />
    9. 9. QUESTION #1 -ANSWER<br />PAUL FORETOLD A GREAT APOSTASY.<br />Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, 3 forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.<br />1 Timothy 4:1-3.<br />Roman Catholicism<br />
    10. 10. QUESTION #1 -ANSWER<br /><ul><li>From 300 – 1800 A.D. the church of Christ faded from the world- stage because of this great apostasy.
    11. 11. Did it cease to exist? No!
    12. 12.

COMMON SENSE QUESTIONS A “CHURCH OF CHRIST” PREACHER CANNOT CLEARLY ANSWER<br />BY DAVID MARTIN – SOLID ROCK BAPTIST CHURCH<br />QUESTION #2.<br />If a &quot;Church of Christ&quot; elder refuses to baptize me, will I be lost until I can find one who will? Do I need Jesus AND a Campebllite &quot;preacher&quot; in order to be saved? If I do, then Jesus Christ is not the only Mediator (1 Tim. 2:5) and the Holy Spirit is not the only Administrator (1 Cor. 12:13) of salvation - the &quot;Church of Christ&quot; preacher is necessary to salvation for he is performing a saving act on me when he baptizes me! Is this not blasphemy against Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost?<br />
    15. 15. QUESTION #2 -ANSWER<br /><ul><li>We have never taught that an elder or preacher must do the baptizing.
    16. 16. The person performing the baptism is immaterial as long as the one being baptized has been taught correctly and is doing it for the right reason.

Where does the Bible teach that water baptism is required in order to have one&apos;s sins forgiven? Every time the phrase &quot;for the remission of sins&quot; occurs it is speaking of the fact that sins have been forgiven previously! The Bible plainly teaches that the forgiveness of sins is conditioned upon repentance of sin and faith in Christ - never upon water baptism!<br />
    19. 19. COMMON SENSE QUESTIONS A “CHURCH OF CHRIST” PREACHER CANNOT CLEARLY ANSWER<br />BY DAVID MARTIN – SOLID ROCK BAPTIST CHURCH<br />QUESTION #11.<br />(Matthew 3:11; Luke 24:47; Acts 3:19; Acts 5:31; Acts 10:43; Acts 20:21; Romans 1:16; Romans 4:5; et.al.) Where does the Bible teach that forgiveness of sin is linked with water baptism? When Christ made the statement in Matthew 26:28, &quot;for the remission of sins,&quot; it had to be because they had been forgiven all through the Old Testament! Christ shed His blood because God forgave repentant and believing sinners for thousands of years before the Son of God came to &quot;take away&quot; sins and to redeem us and pay the sin-debt with His own precious blood. <br />
    20. 20. COMMON SENSE QUESTIONS A “CHURCH OF CHRIST” PREACHER CANNOT CLEARLY ANSWER<br />BY DAVID MARTIN – SOLID ROCK BAPTIST CHURCH<br />QUESTION #11.<br />How can one say that &quot;for the remission of sins&quot; means &apos;in order to obtain&apos; in light of the fact that God never uses the phrase in that sense? In the Old Testament God forgave sin on the basis of a blood sacrifice (Heb. 9:22) - the Old Testament saints had their sins remitted (i.e., forgiven) but they were not redeemed until Christ came and shed His blood at Calvary. Their sins were covered (Romans 4:7; Psalm 32:1), but the sinner was not cleared of his guilt (Exodus 34:7) until the Cross (Heb.10:4). <br />

When Jesus said, &quot;It is finished,&quot; (John 19:30), all sin - past, present and future - was paid for, and the plan of salvation was completed, so that &apos;whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins&apos; (Acts 10:43). <br />

    37. 37. COMMON SENSE QUESTIONS A “CHURCH OF CHRIST” PREACHER CANNOT CLEARLY ANSWER<br />BY DAVID MARTIN – SOLID ROCK BAPTIST CHURCH<br />QUESTION #12.<br />If salvation is not by works of righteousness which we have done, and baptism is a work of &quot;righteousness,&quot; then how can water baptism be a part of salvation? (Titus 3:5; Matt. 3:16) In the Bible, we are SAVED BY GRACE, and grace does not involve human effort or merit - grace is grace and work is work! (Just read Ephesians 2:8,9 and Romans 11:6.)<br />
    38. 38. QUESTION #12 -ANSWER<br />He says; “In the Bible, we are SAVED BY GRACE, and grace does not involve human effort or merit - grace is grace and work is work!”<br />For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.<br />Ephesians 2:8-9.<br />
    39. 39. QUESTION #12 -ANSWER<br />He says; “In the Bible, we are SAVED BY GRACE, and grace does not involve human effort or merit - grace is grace and work is work!”<br />Grace is the unmerited favor of God. It cannot be earned by works of merit.<br />However, human effort is required to accept the gift!<br />Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord (Gen. 6:8) but his salvation took effort on his part.<br />In meeting the conditions of salvation, we are not saying that God owes us salvation but that we are accepting the gift offered.<br />

    43. 43. QUESTION #12 -ANSWER<br />He says; “In the Bible, we are SAVED BY GRACE, and grace does not involve human effort or merit - grace is grace and work is work!”<br />Work is required!<br />These are not works of merit.

    130. 130. QUESTION #13 -ANSWER<br />Martin says, We know that unsaved people do not receive or have the Holy Spirit (John 14:17; Romans 8:9).<br />
    131. 131. QUESTION #13 -ANSWER<br />Martin says, We know that unsaved people do not receive or have the Holy Spirit (John 14:17; Romans 8:9).<br />“If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.<br />John 14:15-18.<br />
    132. 132. QUESTION #13 -ANSWER<br />Martin says, We know that unsaved people do not receive or have the Holy Spirit (John 14:17; Romans 8:9).<br />This passage is not dealing with Holy Spirit baptism.<br />“If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.<br />John 14:15-18.<br />
    133. 133. QUESTION #13 -ANSWER<br />Martin says, We know that unsaved people do not receive or have the Holy Spirit (John 14:17; Romans 8:9).<br />Furthermore, in verse 17, when it says, “...whom the world cannot receive...”<br />“receive” = lambano: “to take with the hand, to take in order to carry away, to take away.”<br />“If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.<br />John 14:15-18.<br />
    134. 134. QUESTION #13 -ANSWER<br />Martin says, We know that unsaved people do not receive or have the Holy Spirit (John 14:17; Romans 8:9).<br />Means that that the world could not “take away” the Holy Spirit.<br />Jesus was not going to leave them alone.<br />“If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.<br />John 14:15-18.<br />
    135. 135. QUESTION #13 -ANSWER<br />Martin says, We know that unsaved people do not receive or have the Holy Spirit (John 14:17; Romans 8:9).<br />But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.<br />Romans 8:9.<br />
    136. 136. QUESTION #13 -ANSWER<br />Martin says, We know that unsaved people do not receive or have the Holy Spirit (John 14:17; Romans 8:9).<br />Again, not dealing with Holy Spirit baptism.<br />This deals with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit after conversion.<br />These are two different things!<br />But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.<br />Romans 8:9.<br />
    137. 137. QUESTION #13 -ANSWER<br />Martin says, We know that unsaved people do not receive or have the Holy Spirit (John 14:17; Romans 8:9).<br />NOWHERE IS HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM LINKED WITH SALVATION<br />
    138. 138.

If the answer is that they are &quot;aids to worship,&quot; where does the Bible allow for that? Where is your required authorization?

    175. 175. QUESTION #10 -ANSWER<br />Martin says, “...where do they get the &quot;authority&quot; to use hymnals, pitchpipes, pews, and indoor baptistries in their worship services?”<br />Music – the art or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.<br />WHAT ABOUT PITCH-PIPES AND HYMNALS?<br />They are expedients or incidentals! They are like the bottle and bag for the pharmacist.<br />Playing a note on a pitch-pipe before we sing is not music.<br />Pitch-pipes and hymnals merely help us to obey the command to sing!<br />
