The wisdom and lamentation of Paul Washer
By A.J. Castellitto

Paul Washer is not everyone's cup of tea.

He is perceived by some to flirt with a promotion of 'works righteousness' in his teaching and preaching. We must remember, however, that the sanctified believer cannot walk separated from God for long before he is struck down somehow and forced back onto the narrow path...



"And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints." – Revelation 13



The Self Destructive Tendencies of Man

There exists today a multitude of under-reported and overlooked atrocities, debaucheries, and offenses that are blindly cultivated and perpetuated by our modern, God-dishonoring, humanly depraved, secular culture. It's a culture where female degradation, child exploitation, male emasculation, and various other social calamities are rampant.



We must check ourselves and our sins and stop trying to find objections against submitting to God's complete authority. We can't win in His court of law. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God.



The history of fallen and depraved humanity reveals a vile track record of pain and suffering. Unfortunately, Christianity has been perverted and co-opted so often it's become almost indistinguishable from the world around us. To deny the evil intentions of men is to embrace them.



The best laid plans will ultimately go up in smoke. All our grand schemes are bound to backfire. We have the truth written on our hearts, but they have turned black and hard. With stony hearts, we foolishly press on, sowing and reaping without God and without hope. We are accountable transgressors standing on shaky ground.



Sophistication only ensures greater diabolical complexity and social infiltration for the wholly unrestrained servants of the devil.

How many Christians will continue to be decieved? How many prefer to be?

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." – Revelation 13
