Imparted Evil Nature
Legal Guilt & Condemnation
Christ Bore our Sins
Imputed Obedience of Christ
He hath made Him to be Sin
O Wretched man that I Am
It's Impossible to be Lost
Some Excerpts from his Sermons:
"I tell you, any person who denies
the kinship and the natural depravity of all men and women in Adam --
they do not know God and they do not know this Book."
If all that was meant by this statement was 'Physical death', meaning
we 'Physical' die due to Adam's initial Sin in the Garden, then I would
Not have adduced it for examination, HOWEVER, because Warmack
(like Augustine and other Reformed thinkers) fail to separate this type
of inherited corruption FROM moral depravity, we must inspect it for a
moment. (the NEXT quote I will educe and the audio clip titled"Imparted
Evil Nature" will prove he does Not discern a difference between
Physical and Moral 'depravity') Now, since there is No distinction made
here, it has to follow that Wickedness is a 'natural' trait found in
human beings who descend from the loins of Adam. In short, if such a
statement is accurate, it would necessarily follow that committing Sin
would produce a positive feeling instead of a negative one. Yet, the
Bible says, "for when Gentiles (meaning heathens), who do not have the
law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the
law, are a law to themselves, who show the work of the law written in
their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between
themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them)". (Rom.
2:14-15) In other words, Sin is Not natural, not even to the
Unregenerate. (this is WHY, for instance, people who do Not follow
Christ deem it necessary to hide their acts of Adultery from their
mates!) Now, if only the Un-Saved reject the notion of Sin being a
Natural quality within human nature, then we must
conclude all the Christians who lived before the 4th Century (where
Augustine of Hippo formulated the idea of 'Total Depravity' which Warmack is advancing in the pulpit) were lost.
(this is precisely what a Reformed thinker wants you to believe so they
can advance their systematic theology which contradicts the Patristic
"When your child was born, my two
boys, when they were conceived, immediately, what did they get from me
and from their mother? What did they get?...huh...they got Adam's Sin
and Adam's Guilt imputed and his evil nature imparted to each and
everyone of em."
This "Federal Headship" theory, which Warmack alludes to here without
announcing it, is connected to the Reformed faith's Covenantal exegeses
of Scripture. Basically, behind all the rhetoric,
it is explained that Adam was the human races Representative in the
Garden, therefore, when he Sinned, it is explained that his loins, that
is, the entire human race whom he 'represented',
Sinned as well. Because of this, everyone (except Jesus of course) is
Born a Sinner (imputed with Adam's Guilt) and morally Depraved (meaning
Only able to do evil). However, such a theory lacks support from the
Genesis account and is DENIED
to be possible by various Texts found in the Bible! (Deu. 24:16; 2 Kngs
14:6; 2 Chron. 25:4; Jer. 31:29-30) Hear the Prophet Ezekiel: "The soul
who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor
the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the
righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall
be upon himself". (Ezk. 18:20). Further proof of this hermeneutical
error is found in Romans 5:14 where the Apostle states, "nevertheless
death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned
according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam..."
repels the idea of the entire human race being 'Represented' by Adam
and Sinning with him PRENATALLY! Consider Genesis 8:21 as well which
informs us that "the imagination of man’s heart
is evil from his YOUTH".... notice, he did Not say "Birth" as Warmack has told us. Moreover, Paul said, "I was alive once without the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died." (Rom. 7:9) In the same Book he tells us "for where there is no law there is no transgression" and that "for by the law is the knowledge of sin". (Rom. 4:15 & 3:20) Since infant children are said to have "no knowledge of good or evil"
in Scripture, then it must follow that they are viewed as innocent by
God until they 'actually' commit iniquity of their own volition. (Deut.
1:39; Isa. 7:15-16; 59:2; Rom. 9:11) Warmack has explained Sin to be
reproduced with the body through the act of procreation, however, the
Apostle John disagrees and plainly states that "whosoever Commits Sin Transgresses also the Law: for Sin is the Transgression of the Law." (1
Jn. 3:4) Because this teaching assumes that everyone Sinned with Adam
and has been Imputed with his Guilt, then it becomes apparent that
Un-baptized and aborted babies who perish, will Reap what Adam has
Sown, that being, the 'dreadful decree' of Eternal death. (Rom. 6:23)
This teaching is based on conjecture, study it and remember what Jesus
words... “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven." (Matt. 19:14)
"As Adam by his one transgression
brought legal guilt and legal condemnation to every person who was
connected with him, so by the Lord Jesus Christ, by His one act of
obedience, His sinless life, and His substitutionary death, He brought
justification in time and in time through regeneration and conversion,
He brings Spiritual life to everybody who is connected with Him."
There is ALOT of theology behind this statement, but again, because
it is assumed that all Sinned in the person of Adam, then it follows
that the (so called) 'Covenant' has been Violated and God can 'Justly'
responsible for the first mans transgression, even though you did Not
participate in it. (by this, they say, you Cannot plead what your
conscience screams, that is, Un-Just!) Now, because your Born a
Sinner and Totally Depraved, you No longer have the ability to access
your Free Will apart from Preceding Grace giving you entrance.
Therefore, if your FATE is Redemption, then the Active and
Passive Obedience of Jesus will be Imputed to your account by God, thus
removing the 'legal guilt and legal condemnation' incurred from Adam at
is 100% Forensic, meaning, it changes God's VIEW of the recipient and
NOT the person Receiving it!) What this ultimately means is you will be
'Irresistible' drug to Salvation, then AFTER
you're Saved in your Sins, you will be granted the ability to
Repent, have Faith and Persevere. (in other words, God, through the
Spirit, will free up your Free Will) On the other hand, if
you're Not connected to Christ, meaning predestined to Reprobation by
God and Un-Atoned for by His Son,
then you will have no other choice but to Continue in wickedness and
Un-belief because God failed to bestow on you the Grace you need by
which you could have been Regenerated and able to produce the Fruits of
Salvation. Hence, God is to blame, which means, man is Not responsible
for his or her choices! Furthermore, the
notion that every single person Sinned in Adam, but that everybody is
Not Redeemed by Christ is in conflict with Romans 5:18 which states: "Therefore, as
through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in
condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift
came to all men, resulting in justification of life." According to Warmacks Calvinist theory, the first "all" in the Passage means the entire human race, whereas, the second "all"
is confined to the 'Elect' alone. This is WRONG for sure as many Verses
explain. (Jn. 1:29; 2 Cor. 5:14-15; 1 Tim. 2:6; 2 Pet. 3:9; 1 Jn.2:2,
etc.) What we have here is the common error of reading a personal
theology into the Bible. Don't be Deceived!
"You and I enter into this promise, what…there is therefore no
condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus, were not even
condemnable ... you say, well, we sin grievously, yes we do, but
listen, Christ bore our sins in His body on the tree, which ones? ….all
of them! And for that cause since God condemned sin in the person of
Christ what can it not be for those whom He
represented?....there’s no possibility of condemnation… we can never be
brought back under the guilt, defilement or penalty of sin because the
penalty was paid in full when our blessed Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
cried, “it’s finished”, it was done!"
While the Bible does indeed say "there is therefore now no condemnation to those who
are in Christ Jesus",we MUST remember, this strictly applies to those "who do
not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit!"
8:1 & 4) The idea that Grace allows Christians to Continue to Sin
'GRIEVOUSLY'contradicts what the Apostle Paul taught completely! "For the
grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us
that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly in the present age." (Tit. 2:11-12) And again,
"What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may
abound? Certainly not!" (Rom. 6:1-2) The notion that the Blood of
Christ will automatically Cloak your ongoing Vice translates into
Salvation being a license to Sin! (Jude 3-4) But if this is the case,
then WHY does the Bible Warn, "For if we sin willfully after we have
received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a
sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment,
and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries?" (Heb.
10:26-27) Notice too that Warmack interprets 1 Pet. 2:24 as relating to the Believers FUTURE Sins! Yet, the VERY Apostle who Warmack claims taught Pre-Forgiveness WARNED his fellow Christian that IF you do Not "Add to your Faith", you will become "shortsighted, even to blindness, and forget you were cleansed from your OLD sins!"
(2 Pet. 1:5-10) Why would Peter say this when he, as Warmack has
asserted, understood the "Elects" FUTURE Sins to already be under the
Blood? If Future Sins are Under the Blood, then HOW could God Chastise
His children He can no longer see? (Heb 12) Furthermore, HOW could the
Lord had seen the Iniquity in the Churches as recorded in Revelations
2-3? Clearly, Warmack is in Major error! The Death of Christ, according
to Romans 3:25, allowed God to "pass over the sins that were PREVIOUSLY committed"
only! Take Heed! God is NOT Blind to your Disobedience! There is a
LIST of Sins in the Bible that will Disqualify you from His Kingdom. (1
Cor. 6:9-10; Gal. 5:19-21; Eph. 5:5-7; Rev. 21:8) Remember what the
Apostle John told us...."Little children,
let no one deceive you. He who does righteousness is righteous, just as
He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil!" (1 Jn. 3:7-8)
"Listen, because they are one with Christ in the view of God's law and
justice, this morning, if your in Christ, you have perfectly satisfied
every single solitary demand of God's justice in the person of your
surety and substitute the Lord Jesus Christ, you have kept the law.
Most people told you all your life, 'the only way you going to go to
heaven is by keeping the law' and they were right, you've kept it. You
say, 'oh no I haden't', ohhhh yea you have, in the person of the Lord
First, notice the language... "in the VIEW of God's law and justice".
This is IMPORTANT to grasp because this entire theology is based on God
seeing Christ when He looks at you. (in other words, God has Deceived
Himself into thinking you are 'Righteous', when in fact, you are Not!)
Secondly, where exactly does it SAY that Christ Obeyed for us? (Jn
14:15; Acts 5:32; Rom. 6:16; Heb. 5:9; 11:6; 1 Jn. 2:3-6; Rev. 19:7-8)
Yes, He did "fulfill' the Law, however, that doesn't mean you are
exempt from 'Walking in the Spirit', whereby, you also ‘Fulfill’ the
Righteous requirements of the Law BY Faith. (Matt. 5:17 & Rom. 8:4) The
question is, "Do we then make void the law through faith?"
Warmack, the answer is YES! (since it is obvious that if Christ is your
'Substitute', then He, instead of YOU, kept God’s Law!) Yet, Paul the
disagrees, "Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the law."
(Rom. 3:31) Since the Law is to be upheld in our hearts through Faith
Working by Love, then HOW could Paul
understood that Christ did this for us OR that it is transferred to us
by Faith? (Gal. 5:6) Impossible! Often the Bible explains that "love is the
fulfillment of the law" (Rom. 13:10) Christ even said, "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
(Matt. 22:37-41) If this is what God demands on the pains of Hell Fire,
but we are
incapable of rendering due service, once again, an Un-Just picture is
betrayed of the 'Righteous' Father! (Jn. 17:25) This entire quote by
Warmack reeks of the Satisfaction Model of 'Atonement' recommended by a
Anselm of Canterbury (Aosta c. 1033 – Canterbury 21 April 1109) that
LATER formulated into a model of Reconciliation known as 'Penal
Substitution' by the Reformers. Neither of these teachings have roots
in Primitive Christianity.
"What does 2 Corinthians 5:21 say, I forgot? huh...hmm... my brain went
completely dead boy. Thats old age I'm turning 50 this week so you got to
give me some lead way. I'm glad I'm a hillbilly cause y'all understand
this... for he hath made Him to be sin for us who knew no sin that we
might be made the righteousness of God in Him. Boy thats an amazing
thing. His flesh, His perfect obedience, and His sinless humanity, God
the Son offered on the alter of His deity, so that all of our sins were
purged and paid for perfectly and completely, not in our own persons,
but in the person of His Son the Lord Jesus Christ."
To preachers like Warmack, Christ 'Sinlessness' (i.e
Perfection/Obedience) was carried out so it could be 'Transferred' to
the Elect by Faith, however, in the Bible it becomes clear that Jesus
Sinlessness was necessary because, as God has told us in times past,
"Whatever has a defect, you shall not offer, for it shall not be
acceptable on your behalf". (Lev. 22:20 & Ex. 12:5) In other words,
Christ Purity is connected with His Sacrifice to God, NOT in His moral
track record being Imputed to you! (Eph. 5:2) As the Bible says...."how
much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit
offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead
works to serve the living God?" (Heb. 9:14) And again, 'By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all" (Heb. 10:10) The idea that
Christ became a "mass of Sinfulness" (meaning a Sinner) on the Cross and was literally
infected with the elects Sin, as Warmack and other
Calvinist insist so they can teach their doctrine of Double Imputation, is inaccurate according to 1 Jn. 3:5 where it is
said: "And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and
in Him there is no sin."(not
to mention if Christ 'Paid the Penalty'
for your Sin, as Warmack says He did, the Punishment is [eternal] death
according to Rom. 6:23) The Truth is Christ Death was a Sin-Offering to
God on our Behalf. (this is supported by the Prophet Isaiah in 53:10
and the LXX, which WAS the Apostles Bible) Therefore, the idea that
Christ incurred your 'legal Guilt' at Calvary OR absorbed
the Wrath of God 'in your stead' is a Reformed MYTH! Research it.
"He loved us when?...when we were dead in trespasses and sins. And
Christ righteousness imputed, what is it?...its the only ground or
cause or hope of our Salvation. His righteousness alone is the only
thing that can remove God's wrath and gain God's favor...its the only
thing that can take away the defilement of our sin and entitle us to
justification and eternal life, but now listen to me...the true
believers walk, there course or there cause is the evidence that he's
in Christ Jesus -- that he has been truly Saved based on that one
ground, imputed righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ alone. The true
believers walk is not the ground of his peace, your walk, your
character and your conduct is not the source of your comfort in God's
sight, and it's not the source or the cause of your comfort in your own
conscience. Think about this this morning, how in the world can you
find peace and comfort from those things which you are caused to cry
according to Romans chapter 7 every single solitary day?..."O wretched
man that I am, who shall deliver me from this body of death?" We
realize how miserably we fail. You show me one child of God who doesn't
realize that they have not loved God perfectly and they have not loved
their neighbor as themselves, and I will show you a man or woman who
does not know the true and living God. We know we have not fulfilled
the law. Now we know we fail in our character and conduct."
Warmack’s Gospel is Not based on Following Jesus, instead, it is
grounded on you 'Trusting' that Christ Obeyed in all areas you Disobey!
(which according to this theology, would be in EVERY single way!)
The Bible WARNS you 'Reap what you Sow' and that "we must all appear
before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the
things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or
bad", HOWEVER, if character and conduct don't count under Grace, as Warmack has suggested, then
these Verses are no longer valid! (Gal. 6:7-9; 2 Cor. 5:10; 1 Pet.
1:17) Paul told the Thessalonians, "you are witnesses, and God also,
how devoutly and justly and blamelessly we behaved ourselves among you
who believe" and in Acts 24:16 he says, "I myself always strive to have
a conscience without offense toward God and men." If conduct doesn't
count, then WHY does the Bible instruct Believers to be "obedient
children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your
ignorance; but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all
your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy?” (1 Pet.
1:14-16) Also, how could the Wretch described in Romans 7 be Paul in
the Present tense? Clearly it is Not, just like the Apostle is NOT
saying he is the 'Chief of Sinners' PRESENTLY in 1 Tim. 1:15! "For to
be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and
peace." (Rom. 8:6) Paul said you are a Slave to whom you Obey! (Rom.
6:16-17) Romans 7, taken in Context with Chapters 6 & 8, depicts
the Apostles past life in Judaism (remember HOW that Chapter
begins..."for I speak to those who know the law!"), instead of his
present Life in Christ! (Gal. 2:20) Paul taught "the purpose of the
commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from
sincere faith!" (1 Tim. 1:5) He testified to Newness of Life! (2 Cor
5:17) Warmack is arguing in Favor of Sin and leading people to
conclusions that the Spirit of Truth does Not! Remember Peter's Warning about False teachers..."For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption..." This is A vivid description of Richard Warmack... His doctrine is ROTTEN to the Core and Fleshly! Jesus said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin" and that "if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed!" (Jn. 8:34-36) This is WHAT it means to be a Partaker of the Divine nature! ("having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust" -- 2 Pet. 1:3-4) Don't believe the Lie! "For whatever is born of God OVERCOMES the world. And this is the VICTORY that has overcome the world—our faith." (1 Jn. 5:4)
"It's impossible, you hear me? It's absolutely impossible for anybody
whom God loved before time to finally and ultimately be lost --- thats
how secure our Salvation is."
This is the Fatalism of Calvinism that is camouflaged by the term "Grace". As they say, 'by the decree of God,
for the manifestation of his glory, some men and angels are
predestinated unto everlasting life, and others foreordained to
Thus, if man can forfeit his Salvation, then God is
no longer Absolutely Sovereign and His Will can be thwarted! (this is
WHY the doctrine of 'Total Depravity' was invented, since in theory,
man losses all his ability to Resist God! -- Acts 7:51 & 2 Tim.
3:8) This doctrine of Eternal Security
makes it impossible to know who is of God or lost, since we must
remember that Deeds done in the body don't count under this Gospel,
which really means, you can't know people by their Fruits! (Matt.
7:15-20 & 1 Jn. 3:10) Many Scriptures must be considered as well.
What about 2 Cor.
13:5? "Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test
yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in
you?—unless indeed you are disqualified?" How much Clearer could the Apostle
have been? (he basically says the SAME thing in 1 Cor.
9:24-27!) Also, Why did Paul Warn about 'Shipwrecking' your Faith and
about a time when a Great "falling away"
would come to pass before the Day of the Lord, when in
fact, the Elect cannot suffer shipwreck according to the Faith and
its impossible to Apostate from God? (1 Tim. 1:18-20 & 2 Thess.
2:3 & Matt. 24:24-25) Have you ever read his farewell address to
the Ephesian Elders?
(Acts 20:26-35) Why would the Apostle take the time to WARN the Church
about deception, when none in the Church could become Deceived or lost
as they travel along the Narrow Way? We see in John's Gospel that some
of Jesus's Disciples withdrew from Him and
"walked with Him no more" (Jn. 6:66) To the Reformed thinker, in hopes of
protecting their doctrine of Eternal Security, it would have to be insisted that these Disciples
Never really followed the Lord to begin with, however, it's
obviously impossible to walk away from someone you NEVER walked with
to begin with! Same goes for Judas Iscariot. The Bible doesn't tell us
he was NEVER Saved to begin with as Calvinism does, instead, it shows he WAS Saved, then
fell! (Acts 1:25; Matt. 10:1-4; 1 Jn. 3:4) Furthermore, HOW could one
'fall', IF they Never 'stood'? Don't be Deceived by by teachers like
Warmack! Peter Warned the "Beloved" about false teachers who would "TWIST" Paul's Letters and in the process, lead some "away with the error of the wicked."
(2 Pet. 3:14-17) This is precisely what the OSAS doctrine has done
today! It has distorted Paul's Message and led people into complacency
BECAUSE they have been Convinced that they are Safe and Secure in the
arms of Jesus forever more, regardless of their behavior and commitment
to Him, because as Warmack said.... "It's absolutely impossible for anybody
whom God loved before time to finally and ultimately be lost!" It's time to ditch this Reformed dogma and Dig into the Word for yourself! Jesus said "he who endures to the end will be saved." (Matt. 10:22) Hebrews 3:14 says, "For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end." "To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath!" (Rom. 2:7-8) So..."Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For
he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who
sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart." (Rom. 6:7-9)
