What are the WORKS of Richard rives?

Good ole ‘tricky dick’ has sent out another en-mass email with the following paragraphs.

“Works by Richard Rives”

Friday, August 24, 2012 12:31 PM

“Scripture informs us that in the last days there will be false prophets and those who have a form of godliness, yet they are lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. “

“The book of Titus tells us that Believers must be cautious: that there are those who “profess that they know God; but in WORKS they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good WORK reprobate.”

“Today, it is easy to spot those false teachers. When it comes to WORKS they not only deny Him but teach others to do likewise. They tell us we should not even discuss works – that now it is all about grace – that to talk about WORKS is to be legalistic.”

 

“It is true that we are saved by grace through faith and not by works of the law. A man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ. Even so, sin is still defined as the transgression of the law.”

“We must not practice sin. The last chapter of the entire Bible tells us that our Creator and Savior will return to earth and His reward will be with Him to give every man according as his WORK shall be. He is Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. “

“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” …Revelation 22:14”

“Earnestly contending for the faith once delivered to the saints; I’m Richard Rives with Just The Facts.”

Ok that was rives email. Here is my reply.

I have never understood how people think that they can somehow be sinless by using an outdated system. After all the Law could not save Israel and yet rives thinks that keeping only Ten of the 613 will somehow help his morality?

And as for the subject of ‘not practicing sin’ I wonder if he has read up on the philosophy?

See here:

I have not heard of many ‘good works’ from rives and his ilk. In fact isn’t he earning money from his websites, creation museum and so forth? Isn’t he making a living trying to destroy Christianity here in America?!

Turn to Jesus my friends because Richard rives is not of Christ but serving his own lusts and satan!
