The word diabolos (Strong’s G1228) appears a total of 38 times in the King James Bible. It is translated 35 times as devil, 2 times as false accuser, and one time as slanderer. This is the word that was translated as devil to describe Judas Iscariot in John 6:70. It is mostly used to describe Satan himself.

John 6:70

Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? G1228

Matthew 25:41

Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil G1228 and his angels:

What does it mean to traduce?

The best stratagem that Satan hath, is by traducing the form and manner of the devout prayers of God’s church.

2. To calumniate; to vilify; to defame; willfully to misrepresent.

He had the baseness to traduce me in libel.

What does it mean to calumniate?

To accuse or charge one falsely, and knowingly, with some crime, offense, or something, disreputable; to slander.

To slander is a main attribute of Satan.  There is no mercy, and no love behind those who slander. Just like Satan, they intend harm. Guile, bitterness, pride, anger and hatred can all manifest in slander, traducing, or calumniation.

Proverbs 10:18

He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.

The word of God has very clear warnings about false accusers, slanderers, traducers. They are lost, and they seek to sow discord amongst the children of God, which God hates (Proverbs 6:16-19). Their evil words stir up strife, and they are known by such.

Be Careful You Do Not Slander!

One of the things we must be sure of in our discernment ministry is that we do not slander a fellow believer just because we don’t agree with his or her teachings or beliefs. Before we call someone out, we need to be sure we have accurate information/sources and properly interpreted scriptures. If you have a blog ministry and call people out for false teachings, leave a link for each source. And be teachable. Research why someone believes the way they do; research both for and against it. If you do debate the issue, or expose a heresy, stay gracious.

One who is slandered all of the time is John Calvin. Every time I run into the slander it is because they have been taught hyper-Calvinism. Every. Time. I am going to leave a link below so the differences can be seen. If you don’t like the doctrine of election and assurance of salvation, you won’t like Calvinism. But, at least, be sure you do not associate hyper-Calvinism with true Calvinism. I came to Calvinism after much kicking against the goads when I prayerfully was reading my daily scriptures in Romans (9:11). Yes, people say that this passage is talking about Israel’s election but if you read it carefully it is talking about all of God’s people. Are we not grafted into the olive tree? Are we not called to use Israel’s relationship to God, good and bad, as our example? Are we not Abraham’s children through faith in Christ? My free will did not survive the Fall. I found Calvinism, the doctrine of election, exalted God’s sovereign will over my “free” will in my salvation and that was quite humbling knowing what an awful person I was before Christ. I was not looking for Jesus, yet He found me that wonderful, blessed day. I know I have less than nothing to boast of before Him! Not even saying a prayer. God owes me nothing.

Romans 9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth (Arminianism/free will), nor of him that runneth (RCC, works righteousness), but of God that sheweth mercy (His election, free grace).

Calvinism Is Not Hyper-Calvinism

3 Reasons John 3:16 Doesn’t Refute Calvinism

Another person who gets slandered a lot is Charles Haddon Spurgeon. Latest slander says he was a freemason. I’ve studied freemasonry for discernment purposes and never saw his name come up once. And, today, I can find no evidence that he was one even taking into account the troubling unfortunate use of freemason terms in a couple of sermons the blogger sited (I will leave the passages and links below). Hardly concrete evidence. Pastors mention Easter and Christmas but that doesn’t make them pagans. Many Freemasons were Baptists (and many are to this day) so he may have had members of his church who were involved in it. They most likely designed and built the updated Metropolitan Tabernacle in Spurgeon’s day. Remember, they are a secret society, and it is not until they reach a certain degree that hints of their heresy come out, so Spurgeon may not have known their true beliefs. If he were truly a member there would have been no secrecy about it, especially after his death. He would have been a jewel in their crown and a draw for membership. So, for now, I cannot find evidence that there is any truth in this accusation. From the blogsite:

“I pray that the members of this church may always act toward each other as brothers and sisters in Christ. I wish that among all the saints there might be a sort of spiritual Freemasonry so that whenever we might meet, we should recognize one another by the holy grip of Christian love. There are certain sacred passwords that are common to all the saints and I will defy the hypocrite or the worldling to pronounce them aright—but if he should be able to utter them with his lips—he can never really know their meaning in his heart.” (3300 – Titles Of Honor by Charles H. Spurgeon – The Metropolitan Tabernacle, April 5, 1886)

“The best builders of earth cannot be compared to the great Builder above, the eternal Architect, the everlasting Freemason who has built those many mansions where his saints shall live for ever.” (2292 – Abraham, A Pattern For Believers by Charles H. Spurgeon- The Metropolitan Tabernacle, January 22, 1893)

Charles Spurgeon – Heretical Freemason? Great conversation in this forum.

FTF: One must also consider this extremely unflattering comment that Spurgeon made regarding the influence of freemasonry:

We are ourselves acquainted with many who have been ruined by bad company, — such were C , who became a reprobate through spending his Sabbaths in excursions and amusement; F, who was led into peculation and ultimate embezzlement through his friends of the billiard table; H, who was never worth a penny-piece after he had found his heaven in the banquets of the Freemasons; and J, who went from bad to worse through the company of those who laugh at purity, and call vice pleasure. Indeed, the list is endless; and we shall be conceited to no ordinary degree if we imagine that we shall be safe where so many have fallen, never to rise again.
(The Sword and the Trowel, December, 1884)

Obedience is Worship

The X Mass H8rs Blog

You know—it’s not what it means to me. I live in a fallen world, and I am of the sinful nature so why, oh why, would I take my own word or belief and think it to be truth or fact? Simple question, isn’t it? GOD has given us something to know exactly what needs to be done-it guides us because we cannot be trusted to think right for ourselves–because of our sin nature. The WORD condemns any and all pagan rituals. Whether you believe it or not. GOD by HIS very nature cannot, and will not, accept your worship of HIM in those pagan ways–won’t happen no matter how much you believe you are honoring or worshiping HIM. Eggs and bunnies have NOTHING to do with the Resurrection of JESUS. In fact, they are VERY dangerous for any believer to even consider touching. Rev. 3:10 tells us that since…

Jonathan Roumie prayed with deceased Lonnie Frisbee and asked him for a sign?

The Word Like Fire

Whenthey sayto you, “Consultthe mediumsand the spiritistswho whisperand mutter,”should not a peopleconsulttheir God?Should theyconsultthe deadon behalfof the living? To the lawand to the testimony!Ifthey do not speakaccording to thisword,it is becausethey havenodawn. (Isaiah 8:19-20)

The Lord tells us that whoever “calls up the dead” is “detestable to the Lord.”(Deuteronomy 18:10-12)

Jonathan Roumie plays Jesus in The Chosen series and also portrays Lonnie Frisbee in the movie, Jesus Revolution.

In a recent interview about Jesus Revolution, Roumie spoke about his visit to Lonnie Frisbee’s grave. I omitted the interviewer’s brief comments. Start at 9:21 in video:

So before I started work I went over to Christ Cathedral, and I sat by his grave and I prayed a Rosary with him. … In fact, I sat down and I prayed with him. The space just to his right is empty, so I got to sit down. At one…

Alcoholics Anonymous is Demonic

My Blog

As drunkenness is a sin and only the blood of Jesus sets the sinner free, this organization cannot deliver anyone from the bondage of alcohol.

Now where between the pages of the Bible are we told that God works through manmade programs, distributing gifts of peace of mind, freedom, and joy. What happened to the Holy Spirit inspired truth, Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. John 8:36. Is the peace, freedom, and joy He gives to his true followers so fragile, so inadequate, so weak that they must fill up the gap with satanic and demonic systems?

Alcoholics Anonymous’ description and reasoning for the selection of the circle and triangle symbol to represent them sounds very much like the making of an occult ritual. This alone should raise a red flag.

“The equilateral triangle represents the three part answer- unity, recovery and service –…

The trans ‘Hero’ 

I tried to find the Swedish report on the negative impact of transgenderism and, of course, it’s been debunked. The children are at risk of being convinced that they are not really the sex they were born with. It’s so sick, so evil!

Jake’s Message…

The X Mass H8rs Blog

I would like to share something that God has been impressing on me and my life… I hope that it brings edification to others.

1 John 2:15 “Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him…”

The Word of God clearly tells me that I cannot love (welcome, entertain, be fond of, or love dearly) the world or anything in the world because if I do then the love of the Father is not in me… While I was meditating on this, I began to see that even if I go around saying “I love Jesus” it is a lie if I love “ANYTHING” in the world and this was a bitter pill to swallow. Jesus told us clearly that “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and…
