Definition of False Teacher: One who presumes
to teach in the Name of the Lord when God has not sent him.
False Teacher - Joan Uda
Preaching the Gospel of False Love
Joan got Kurt Vonnegut’s advice bungled, and ended up becoming a phony minister of Christ. The false gospel she took on and preached, “He who loves father or mother loves God,” is so very different than the one Jesus Christ preaches, “He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me.” The narrow way of God is not understood or admired by the world and its religions, so strange it is to man’s thinking and ways! But for those who come out, how wonderful the freedom of His perfect love!
Paul wrote this note to Joan Uda:
I red your article in the Saturday, August 18, 2007 Independent
Powerful is Love? and your article on the
net about the recent passing of Kurt Vonnegut and your reflections
on having met him and
studied under him. I have something to relate to you, drawing on both
In the first you write about the love Pete and Clara had for each
other during their many years of marriage, which ended with Clara’s
death. Soon afterwards Pete began to exhibit the symptoms of Alzheimer’s
induced dementia, thinking Clara was still around and looking in vain
to find her. You liken this situation to the transcendental love of
the Lord Jesus Christ, Whose words you record as follows:
“Seek and you will find, Jesus tells us.
Matt. 6:33. Knock and the door will open. Rev. 3:20.”
You tie these together with what you saw in Pete and Clara:
“Love is the search, the door, and the means to open the door.
Pete and Clara are together now, I believe,
forever united in God’s
eternal circle of love.
The circle is for all of us. Peter and Clara’s love shows the
Wow, can delusion get any greater than that? You take the symptoms
of a disease, one which an unjust man would hardly wish on his enemies,
and compare it to the love of God demonstrated by the laying down of
the life of His Son for His enemies! There is no comparison between
the love of God and earthly love of any kind, even one of the highest
order, wherein one would sacrifice his or her life for a loved one.
But God demonstrates His love in Christ by having lived a life without
sin and being in debt to no man, yet dying on behalf of all, the whole
world which has hated and has been at enmity with Him. Making this
the equivalent of a man who is not in his right mind, apparently still
dependent on his dead wife, is blasphemous. Stop and think about it,
if you can.
Jesus put no special stock into the kind of love you equate to God’s.
“If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?
For even sinners love those who love them” (Luke 6:32 HNV).
The love of this world and the things of this world, according to
the Bible, which you presume to use to teach others, are not of God:
“Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone
loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him” (1 John
There is nothing wrong with a man loving his wife or a mother her
children, but when it comes to the Kingdom of God, there is only one
Way, about which you know nothing. Jesus said:
“He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of
Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of
Me” (Matthew 10:37 EMTV).
You hold Pete up as an example of Christ’s love, but Jesus said
that the sign of His love was not one of natural loves, but one of
forsaking those for the love of God:
“If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother
and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life
also, he cannot be My disciple” (Luke 14:26 MKJV).
Those who choose the love of this world do not find the Way, they
“For Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world...” (2
Timothy 4:10 MKJV).
You have never known or experienced the positive and illuminated side
of these things because you are one with this world in its darkness.
You love it and it loves you. You have never been identified with the
Lord or His people, who are hated by the world:
“If you were of the world, the world would love its own. But
because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the
world, therefore the world hates you” (John 15:19 MKJV).
The world teaches a husband and wife will be together forever in Heaven,
but the Lord said otherwise:
“And answering, Jesus said to them, ‘The sons of this
world marry and are given in marriage, but they who shall be counted
worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither
marry nor are given in marriage. Nor can they die any more, for they
are equal to the angels, and are the sons of God, being the sons of
the resurrection’” (Luke 20:34-36 MKJV).
You cite the Scriptures, but misquote them, betraying not only your
lack of spiritual understanding and Essence, but carelessness and
disregard for the holy things of God. You paraphrased Matthew 6:33
as “Seek and you will find,” though it actually says
“But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and
all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33 EMTV).
In other words, the Lord is saying, “Put Me first, and then
you will have all that you need; everything will be rightly ordered.” Your
quote suggests that any love and devotion demonstrated by humans
is equivalent to godly seeking, whether for a dead wife or one’s
pets; it all leads to God. You mention nothing about seeking after,
and putting, His righteousness first. You assume that human love
and affection automatically elevates one to this level. The apostle
Paul has something altogether different to say about what that is
“Because, having the knowledge of God, they did not give glory
to God as God, and did not give praise, but their minds were full of
foolish things, and their hearts, being without sense, were made dark.
Seeming to be wise, they were in fact foolish, And by them
the glory of the eternal God was changed and made into the image of
man who is
not eternal, and of birds and beasts and things which go on the earth.
For this reason God gave them up to the evil desires of their hearts,
working shame in their bodies with one another: Because by them the
true Word of God was changed into that which is false, and
they gave worship and honor to the thing which is made, and not to
Him Who made
it, to Whom be blessing for ever. So be it” (Romans 1:21-25 BBE).
The other Scripture you incorrectly quoted (“Knock and the door
will open”) also leaves out God’s qualifications, suggesting
that whoever is knocking, and on whatever door, will find God. Here
is the actual quote:
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice
and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him and
he with Me” (Revelation 3:20 MKJV).
In this instance the Lord is the One Who is knocking. The point being
made that He is the Initiator, and we are His respondents. Your way,
the way of man’s religion, bypasses the Lord altogether and leaves
the initiation and execution up to you. But you are knocking on the
wrong door. There are many doors. Just because you knock on one and
it opens does not mean anything. You might have gained entrance into
a morgue, or a whorehouse, or a crackhouse. Because you knocked and
it opened, can you automatically assume Christ is there?
He is not, and instead of Heaven you find yourself in the Methodist
church, which is all three of the things I just listed. You appear
righteous to men, but dead men’s bones are there. You prostitute
the things of God for gain in this world. And you dispense the greatest
narcotic of all, man’s religion, dulling the senses of all those
who partake to the realities of the King and His Kingdom, causing others
to blaspheme God on account of your hypocritical ways and diabolical
doctrines. For these things you are held more accountable than those
who do not take the Name of God in vain.
How does Vonnegut fit in? You say he influenced you with these words:
“We are what we pretend to be, so we must
be careful what we pretend to be.”
“I spent years thinking about that, and
concluded that it is, in Kurt’s quirky way, true. It convinced
me that I could become who I wanted to be by pretending to be that
It loosely parallels an experience of John Wesley,
founder of Methodism. When he was a young Anglican priest, Wesley
confided in a friend that
his faith was weak, that he was not ‘a convicted believer.’
The friend said Wesley should keep practicing
his spiritual disciplines until his faith caught up with him. That’s always worked for
Man-made religion is all about what men do to become like God, as
they conceive Him to be, unlike His work that He initiates, where He
transforms people into His image through the obedience of faith in
Christ. Your conception of Christ (and the works born of it) is utterly
antithetical to Him. It is all sham and pretense. Jesus Christ is not
represented by your thoughts and ways, or made flesh by your play acting.
Nevertheless, Wesley’s Moravian friend never counseled him to
pretend, God forbid, but to keep at doing his best until he would realize
the substance. The Law is a tutor to bring us to Christ.
You have been religious, but not real. You have not taken Vonnegut’s
advice to heart and been careful about what you have pretended, and
have become that very thing, a religious charlatan. You should have
forgotten about pretending in the first place and should have confessed
your sins, turning to the Lord in truth. You have chosen what you willed
rather than coming to Christ and confessing what you are, forsaking
this wicked world and its ways in order to be what He wills. So you
have what you were after, this world, but you do not have the next:
“To save your life is to lose it, and to lose your life for
My sake is to save it” (Matthew 10:39 WNT).
Making matters worse, you teach others to follow your way in the Name
of Christ, making you responsible for much loss of life.
