The Apostasy of King Solomon | Dan Corner

The apostasy of King Solomon is a strong indicator of the intensity of our spiritual warfare. Though he had outstanding godly wisdom, this did not keep him from falling into great idolatry and pagan worship. Was Solomon saved before he turned away from God? What were the consequences of his great sin? Find out in this powerful audio message from Brother Dan Corner.

The Teaching of Eternal Security is False

Once Saved Always Saved is the dangerously false teaching that once you have been born again you will always remain saved and that your entrance into God’s kingdom is absolutely guaranteed, even if you horribly backslide. The reality is, those who turn to sin which leads to death after they have been saved have no more expectation of eternal life than those who have never attained salvation in the first place. We have many teachings which explain why once saved always saved is not God’s truth. Many seeking salvation are torn between the ear tickling eternal security doctrine and the clear evidence found in the scriptures to the contrary. The Biblical evidence is overwhelming against eternal security.

Bible teacher Dan Corner explains the misconceptions about once saved always saved and provides more scriptures and arguments refuting eternal security than any other resource on the worldwide web! Read more from Dan Corner on this at

Calvinism | Doctrines of Grace | Works Salvation | Dan Corner

Calvinism is a false but popular theological system that is based on man having no free will in his salvation. Those chosen by God to receive salvation cannot refuse it nor can they lose it. According to Calvinism, the elect can behave in a wicked way and remain saved even while unrepentant. In other words, Calvinism denies that a righteous person will die spiritually by turning to evil. The belief of “once saved always saved” is the most tightly embraced point among Calvinists! True Christian belief is that man has free will both before and after initial salvation. It is his responsibility to keep his salvation and continue to follow the Lord Jesus. Such is consistent with saving grace and is not legalism or a works salvation, as falsely labeled by some.

Giants Of The Past

The Bible actually teaches there were giants who once roamed the earth! They were very tall people. Some were the descendants of Anak—the Anakites. Their chief location was Hebron:

They went up through the Negev and came to Hebron, where Ahiman, Sheshai and Talmai, the descendants of Anak, lived. (Num 13:22)

It is possible there were only three Anakites in the days of Caleb:

From Hebron Caleb drove out the three Anakites—Sheshai, Ahiman and Talmai—descendants of Anak. (Josh 15:14)

Arba was the greatest man among the Anakites. (Josh 14:15), but there were other giants too as tall as the Anakites:

(The Emites used to live there—a people strong and numerous, and as tall as the Anakites. Like the Anakites, they too were considered Rephaites, but the Moabites called them Emites. (Deut. 2:10,11)

The most crucial bit of information about the height of the Biblical giants is found in conjunction with Og, the last of the Rephaites. His iron bed was over 13 feet long! The width was 6 feet. Imagine how B-I-G he must have been:

(Only Og king of Bashan was left of the remnant of the Rephaites. His bed was made of iron and was more than thirteen feet long and six feet wide. It is still in Rabbah of the Ammonites.) (Deut. 3:11)

Is it possible that Og was about 12.5 feet tall, slightly shorter than his bed? If so, then he was a couple feet taller than Goliath, who was over 9 feet tall (1 Sam. 17:4). David slew him with a stone and sling and because he had faith in God! It took people who had a strong faith in God to conquer such giant-like people. Caleb was another such person (Josh. 15:14).

The Teaching of Safe Sex

Society has taken a disgustingly immoral stance on sexuality. Rather than stressing abstinence, school students are learning about “safe sex,” which is not spiritually safe at all. NOTE: ALL sex outside of a legitimate marriage in God’s sight will send one to the lake of fire. Hence, any sex that will land one in eternal torment cannot be “safe sex” in the truest sense. The idea behind the teaching of safe sex is that many are going to be engaging in premarital sexual relations, so they need to learn about disease and pregnancy prevention. They have NO regard for the adverse SPIRITUAL ramifications of such sinful actions. The fiery lake of burning sulfur is a real danger, which too few recognize:

But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars–their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death. (Rev 21:8)

Abraham Lived In A Tent

Even in our current economic depression, if you are like the majority, you actually have cause to rejoice! Why? Because you are living at a higher standard than Abraham, who was a rich man and yet he lived in a tent:

The LORD appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day. Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground. (Gen 18:1,2)

To be a tent dweller would not be easy, even for people who had servants and great wealth. Righteous Abraham never had running water, electricity, a car, a phone, a radio or any type of electronic equipment. That means the simplest things like a ceiling fan or an air conditioner on a hot day are things he could never know. He never went to the refrigerator for a cold piece of fruit or drink of water, since it wasn’t invented until afterwards. He never cooked on a gas stove which produced smokeless and odorless blue flames, since they weren’t available. He never had a microwave oven or an alarm clock. Times were much different for him than for us. His wealth or lack thereof wasn’t the all-important issue for him. His spiritual standing before God was. He had faith in God and a righteous standing, which paved the way for his paradise afterlife. The righteous beggar, named Lazarus, joined Abraham after his own death (Lk. 16:19-31). For Lazarus, while on earth, his health and finances were both in serious trouble, but one day it ended and things were greatly improved for him. That is how it will be for all who are walking with God and are living a holy life because of the Lord Jesus Christ. If your name is written in heaven you have cause to rejoice, regardless how bad it may be for you during this short life:

However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven. (Luke 10:20)

Now that is something to rejoice about! God bless you.

Does Mary play a role in salvation?

Mary, the mother of Jesus in the New Testament, also referred to as “Mother Mary,” “Virgin Mary,” “Blessed Virgin Mary,” “Saint Mary,” “Mother of God,” etc., is an extremely important figure in Catholicism. Mary’s role in salvation to Catholics is drastically different from the Biblical account. Catholics venerate Mary and even have days set aside specifically to honor their sinless, Queen Of Heaven, whom they consider to be their “life, sweetness and hope.”

Due to those dangerous Catholic doctrines, Christians see the Mary of Catholicism and Mary of the Bible as being two different individuals. Former Catholic Dan Corner discusses the “two” Mary’s on his website and in his book, “Is This The Mary Of The Bible?” To read more, please visit http://www.evangelicaloutreach.org/
