  1. I have not found any information about the author, Pedro Almeida. His refutation of Knox is directly from Scripture. Where do you find he is a Calvinist? I have attended Knox's church and he does not teach sound doctrine. For example, he teaches that the King James Version is inerrant and superior to the original Greek and Hebrew manuscripts, because translations always lead to a better place, eg Enoch was translated to heaven. I read the KJV but am Textus Receptus Only. Knox dispenses with the originals and the KJV and actually teaches from the Talmud. Read this expose: https://watch-unto-prayer.org/TR-6a-talmud-kabbalah-only.

  3. Here is a good refutation of Arminianism and a prominent IFB pastor who preaches the Arminian doctrine of non-election: https://silo.tips/download/it-is-obvious-that-choosing-that-election-and-that-foreknowlege-have-nothing-to Brother Tony, what is "cheesy" about this well-written defense of doctrine of election in the Bible? The author has written a Scripturally accurate refutation of Arminianism as preached by Pastor James Knox who rejects and mocks consulting the Greek or Hebrew to understand the words of the KJV. Excerpt: Quote # 1 “It is obvious that choosing, that election, and that foreknowlege, have nothing to do with salvation of a man’s soul.” Refutation # 1: This is totally false. When a preacher disregards the words of God, when a preacher omits the task of doing his exegisis, when a preacher refrains himself from defining the words, he becomes the ultimate authority over his hearers. When this unfortunate practice is used, the preaching, instead of being a blessing, is turned into confusion. Some people did exactly that during the apostolic ministry, twisting sound doctrine to fit their own concepts. As those early misguided people were rebuked by the apostles, so Pr. Knox must be rebuked also because of this sorry mishandling of the word of God. Pr. Knox used 3 texts to come up with this nonsense quoted above. The first is John 6:70 when the Lord Jesus Christ said that he chose the twelve apostles and one of them was the devil. Pr. Knox concludes then, with his childish logic, that: 1. If Judas was chosen by the Lord Jesus Christ; 2. If Judas went to perdition; 3. Then all choosing by God is not unto salvation. The logical fallacy here is easily recognized because we have the same word (chosen), which has two or more senses, being falsely restricted to only one explanation by Pr. Knox. We have the two first premises, restricted to Judas, which cannot lead to an universal conclusion. Let us examine some verses with the verb “chosen” to clarify the issue: “Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?” (John 6:70 KJV) “I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.” (John 13:18 KJV) “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.” (John 15:16 KJV) “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” (John 15:19 KJV) Let us clear the passage and explain what Pr. Knox failed to do. The Lord Jesus Christ did choose the twelve apostles. Eleven of them were chosen positively unto salvation (John 18:9) and unto the ministry (Luke 6:13) of apostleship. Little is explained about the lives of the eleven apostles before the choosing of the Lord, but we know they were taking care of their lives with no showing signs of salvation whatsoever (Mt. 4:18-22; 10:2-4) . The simultaneous choosing to salvation and to the ministry was done also in the same way with the apostle Paul (Ac. 9:6, 15; 22:14; 26:16). Judas, however, was not chosen positively unto salvation, but to be an apostle only. The process is the same to both 2 categories of people: the eleven saved apostles at one side and the traitor at the other, but the purpose , nature and destiny of the choosing the two groups were totally different. When The Lord Jesus speaks of election unto salvation he excluded the traitor: “I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen...” (John 13:18). God indeed performed His purpose in the choosing of Judas according to John 13:18; 17:12 and Ac. 1:16. It was to fulfill God’s purpose expressed in Bible prophecy and the revelation of the counsel of God’s will (At. 4:23; Ro. 9:22) that is: to make certain all the events leading to the fulfillment of Christ’s redemption to guarantee the eternal salvation to the elect through the crucifiction. Let us do what Pr. Knox omitted to do: The verb “chosen” in all the verses above, including Ac. 9:15, is eklegomai which simply means what it says, “to make a choice” among many options, through calling, or simply: “to call out of”. The particle ek is a preposition meaning “out of”; legomai is from the verb lego meaning “to call”. The verb is eklegomai and the associated adjective is ekklektos which are the ones who receive the action of eklegomai (being chosen). The expression “the chosen ones” or “elect” are used interchangebly in the Bible. Foreknowlege of God is an action of relationship and not mere previous knowlege as arminians misdefine. We conclude therefore, that the verb “chosen” which is the same as “election” has everything to do with the salvation of a man’s soul. This is the exact opposite of what Pr. Knox said... His declarations are wrong and misleading and should not be taken seriously by God’s people. Yes, I have posted an introduction of myself and my work here: https://onlinebaptist.com/profile/32513-barbara-ann/
  4. I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.

    My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.
