Patching up the Relationship
Divine Discipline for Sinning

Some Excerpts from his Sermons:

"I'm trusting that those who die incapable of Faith before the reach an age to do so, though they're not innocent, because they are born into a human race that is fallen, that God will rectify the situation and will not impute to them a guilt of a punishment that you might expect at least mathematically in the equation of Salvation, but that God will supply Grace and Mercy to deal with that seeming exception."

How deceptive can you be? His OWN statement of Faith (and the ENTIRE Reformed Tradition he supports!) DECLARES that every single human being from Adam downward, at the MOMENT of conception, is Imputed with the first man's Guilt by God! (Federal Headship Theory) According to Fabarez's Statement of Faith:"People forfeited their intended fellowship with God (Is.59:2), incurred the penalty of spiritual and physical death (Gen.2:16-17; Rom.5:12), became subject to the wrath of God (Jn.3:36), and lost the ability to be independently acceptable to God (Rom.5:6-10) through Adam's one act of disobedience (Rom.5:12)." In other words, when Adam sinned, the human race Transgressed with him. (he is explained to be our 'Representative') Fabarez suggest that God will NOT impute the Guilt of Adam to those who die BEFORE they are able to exercise Repentance and Faith, HOWEVER, how can that be when their own theories insist that mankind FROM BIRTH, conception to be exact, is plagued with the Sin (Guilt) of Adam? Fabarez obviously believes this: "As Adam's offspring the Bible clearly teaches that we have received the guilt and the sin that was brought upon mankind because of Adam and Eve's sin." Do you see HOW Fabarez attempts to maneuver around the Dreadful Decree that all the fathers of his tradition admitted? (Augustine, Luther AND Calvin) The bottom line is this, regardless of HOW they try to dodge it today, Paul said, 'the Wages of Sin is DEATH!' (Rom 6:23) If the human race was Represented by Adam in the Garden, as the Reformed Faith insist, then all babies (fetus to infancy) go to HELL if they die, PERIOD!

"Are you not forgiven of Sins, past, present and future, when you become a Christian? Thats total Forgiveness -- thats legal Justification"

No, you're Not... PAST Sins were Atoned for by Christ, YES! (Rom. 3:25 & 2 Pet. 1:9) And present Cleansing is available, ON THE CONDITION that you are "walking in the Light", meaning Obeying God (1 Jn. 1:7), however, No 'Cloak' for your Future Vice is offered in Scripture since it is Written that "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 & 2 Pet. 2:1-3) Christ gave the Parable of the Un-Forgiving Servant. (Matt. 18:23-35) There He taught us that Forgiveness is 100% Conditional! "For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." (Matt. 6:14-15) When the Servant failed to comply with the Masters decrees, then his Forgiveness was REVOKED! (Matt. 18:32-35) HOW could the Master remit the Servant's original Pardon? Because his DEBT was Not "Paid For in Advance" (as Fabarez and all Calvinist argue!), instead, it was simply Forgiven! (Matt. 18:27 & 32) In other words, the finical acquittal was based on the nature of the Servants initial contriteness over the Debt (Repentance!), NOT on someone stepping in and rectifying his overdue accounts. This is important to understand BECAUSE its a clear illustration about Divine Forgiveness. Fabarez's language of "Total Forgiveness" is a Total Fallacy and based on Conjecture Only! "Legal Justification" is no better and rooted in the idea that Christ "Payed" for the Elects Sins on the Cross. (Passive Obedience of Christ is HOW they explain this) Since He died FOR (meaning "in place of", instead of, "on behalf of") their Sins, meaning, He was Imputed with their [Legal] Guilt derived from Adam, then they are Imputed with the Son of God's Righteousness (again, in a Forensic sense only) then we discover WHY this teaching of Future Forgiveness has to be permitted...(because Salvation is Nothing more than God Declaring you to be something you are Not! --1 Jn. 3:7) Don't be Deceived, God is NOT mocked! (Gal. 6:7) Christ saw the Sins of the "Christians" in the Churches! (Rev. 2-3) This would be utterly impossible IF Believers Sins are "totally Forgiven" at Conversion.

"If you are a child of God, God will get you. If you're on a particular path of Sin -- the Sin that so easily entangles you -- He will get you to stop. Okay.... He will. He will get you to stop. Because the last step of discipline, as I said there in 1 Corinthians 11, Verse 30 is death. Does that sound weird and harsh? I know it is from our perspective, but God will even take your life, that if you continue in a particular Sin, God is going to get you to stop it one way or another and He will use discipline to get it done and the ultimate tool in his arson el is to take your life from this planet."

HOW outrageous can you be! Remember, the last quote we just covered by Fabarez asserts that your past, present AND future Sins are Covered once and for all when you Convert to Christ, NOW, he tells us that if you 'Continue' to Sin (which you MUST because Salvation Only changes God's Eyesight and Not your moral character or conduct) God will Kill you for it! This is double talk! (Jas. 1:7-8) Think about it for a minute.... How can God Scourge (beat/Discipline/Kill?) every son whom He Receives, when He cant see their Sins after being Reconciled? (Heb. 12:6) Furthermore, what about 1 Jn. 3:6, which states, " whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him?" How then can the 'Child of God', as Fabarez mentions, be on a 'particular path of Sin' and remain inside of His family when the Apostle tells us so plainly that "he who SINS is of the Devil!" (1 Jn. 3:10) This entire notion IS repugnant to Sound doctrine. The idea that you get to Heaven faster for Sinning more is the Devils gospel and a Proof that the spirit of error is at work in the Churches! (2 Cor. 11:3 & 1 Jn. 4:6) Keep in mind also that in the Bible, the Christian is described as a Sojourner, simply passing through. (1 Pet. 1:17)"For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ". (Phillip. 3:20) Believers are told to "set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth" BECAUSE, as Jesus said, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Col 3:2 & Matt. 6:19-21) Only people who Love this world and are Disobedient to the Word would NOT want to be taken away from this "planet"! Even the proof Text adduced by Fabarez (1 Cor. 11:30) is questionable, in that it is dealing with taking Communion unworthily and provides no absolute proof that those who brought Judgment upon themselves were Saved! (the doctrine of Eternal Security is a SCAM!) Fabarez is arguing in Favor of Sin...Don't believe the Lies!
