Notice from the Author, Tom Friess

Dear Listeners,

I finally figured out how to log in to do this. I just can’t seem to get a handle on running my own website… illiteracy. I want you all to know that the relationship, sadly, has changed between me and Nicklas Arthur of First Amendment Radio. Many of you may already know that the difference came over the Sabbath issue that I’ve wrestled with for years and made a semi-regular topic for discussion on Inquisition Update. I was asked to step away until I come to agreement with Nicklas, who believes that the Bible teaches that the Sabbath is reckoned by the new moon each month. I have held to the “Saturday” Sabbath for what I believe to be a good reason: On a lunar reckoning, the six days of labor and one day of rest is not possible. And until I see a lunar reckoning clearly from the scriptures, I’ve decided to maintain my position and to look elsewhere. I want my listeners to understand that First Amendment Radio belongs to Nicklas. For me to continue while maintaining my stand on Sabbath in opposition to Nicklas is not my style or my calling. So, until further notice, keep praying and reading good Protestant works as listed on this website and others like it. And by all means read your Authorized King James Bible with prayer and understanding.

In Christ,

Tom Friess

Simon Peter versus Simon the Sorcerer

The Protest is Over? Simon Peter versus Simon the Sorcerer

The following is adapted from an expose by the late Dr. E.L. Martin and documents the true history of the “church” that was established at Rome by Simon the Sorcerer.

“But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries. But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done. Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the LORD for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.” (Acts 8:9-24).

Right from the very beginning, Satan had his counterfeit “messiah” operating right in the true Messiah’s backyard. His name was Simon Magus or Simon the Sorcerer and this man, and not Simon Peter the Apostle, went on to found the Universal Roman “church.” His career was the history of Roman Catholicism in miniature. For a long time he bewitched the people with his false miracles. Since the year 800 A.D., Rome has bewitched the world with her false miracles of transubstantiation.
