You can leave behind your denominations, but if you retain their trappings, you’re still trapped. And you can search the Scriptures all day long, thinking to rightly divide them, but if you don’t come and listen to Him Whom the Scriptures are about, as He lives today, you will be sadly mistaken.
This paper exposes the lie that we are all of equal authority and privilege before God the moment we become Christians and therefore need not obey or submit to God-ordained authorities sent for our sakes that we may learn to walk with God. The spirit of independence and pride is addressed here, which spirit is none other than that of the Evil One coming as a child of light.
There are so many people who believe the lie that Christ is but one of many ways to God. They believe that the major religions of the world are in agreement and harmony with Christ and the Bible. There is nothing farther from the truth. Herein is addressed Buddhism in particular, with reference to the philosophical assertions of Deepak Chopra and Robert Thurman.
The Lord, promising believers tribulation and the death of the cross, certainly seems cruel and undesirable next to Satan, who promises the glory of this world if you’ll follow him. C3 has opted for the latter in a big way, and we’re here to warn you about taking that wide road to destruction.
Show me whom you follow, and I will know what manner of person you are or will become. If you do not know whom you are following, don’t you think it is time to find out how and where you are being led? Do you think you will altogether escape the consequences because ignorant? Think again. You already suffer them.
John Calvin was one of the most vicious of wolves ever to pose as a lamb of God. His supremely self-righteous spirit lives on in those who lionize and follow him, even unbeknownst to themselves. Truly, “that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.”
In this world, looming behind any consideration of what it means to be a Christian is the Catholic Church, with her audacious claim to being the sole authority representing Christ on earth, with all power of God vested in her. Does this claim hold up to the Light of Day? Here, in simple terms, you have the opportunity to have a look and see for yourself.
Neale Donald Walsch has stormed the world with his book, Conversations With God. How amazing that when God speaks, nobody listens, but when devils speak, everybody listens! (The Bible calls it “the mystery of iniquity.”) Everybody, that is, but those who know and love God. I reply to someone who has taken another road to fulfilment, a tragic one, and who, at the time I responded, believed Walsch’s experiences and declarations to be legitimate in God’s sight.
This course, contained in a large volume, is alleged to be dictated by Jesus Christ, yet it directly contradicts His words and the testimony of the saints in the Scriptures. In this correspondence with one who brought us the book, we show how this is not the voice of God, but of devils.
“Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils…” (1 Timothy 4:1).
Nominal Christendom is composed of doctrines of devils, which most assume are sound Biblical doctrines. Peruse our selections to see many ways in which the religious have been deceived and fill the world with lies about God.
The “emerging church” movement follows the lead of the collapsing culture of the late 20th century, discarding invariable truths and precepts of God for the self-serving subjectivity of man. Brian McLaren is one of the movement’s preeminent leaders, and we show how this “new” church movement is just another brand of false Christianity, supplanting faith with anti-Christ philosophy honoring false gods such as Allah and denying the Lord Jesus Christ.
How the words of the inspired writer come alive when applied at the proper time and place. And here evolutionists meet God:
“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” (Romans 1:22-23 BBE).
In this section you will find some very simple, yet logical and conclusive, arguments against the mad theories of evolution, guided above all by godly wisdom and reason. This is not blind faith, but knowing and understanding faith made available to all in the Creator.
A False Conversion to Christ – Deceived by Satan’s Bride
Deborah from “Discerning the World” claims to have been delivered from demons and given a walk with Jesus Christ. Her actions, however, tell a very different story about what happened to her. You do not get evil fruit from a good tree. Reviewing her testimony, we show how Satan comes as an angel of Light in his new daughter.
A False Gospel – A Man and His “Grace” Are Judged
Mr. Green comes poking us regarding the gospel we preach. He says his sole authority is what God says in His Word. Read on and learn from the living, speaking Authority Himself the difference between the false grace and gospel of men and the life-giving truth He intends for you to know and experience.
False Love – Satan’s Last Stronghold
His back to the wall, Satan repairs to his final refuge, where he is invulnerable except to the children of Light, who perceive his number and correctly identify it. His number is that of a man; how can man usurp God’s position except to affect God’s Nature, which is love? So man comes in love, his own, more accurately called charm, which fools the simple and unbelieving into accepting his person and institutions – the beast, who rules over them unmercifully.
In these writings and correspondences, we expose Satan and the beast, and break the power of their charm, that the simple might be made wise, and the foolish, faithful. Satan’s power is not so much in his false love, as in his convincing us that it is the true love of God.
“My son, if sinners lure you, do not be willing. If they say, Come with us, let us lie in wait for blood, we will watch secretly for the innocent without cause; let us swallow them up alive as the grave, and whole, as those who go down into the pit; we shall find all precious goods; we shall fill our houses with plunder; cast in your lot among us, and let us have one purse. My son, do not walk in the way with them! Keep back your foot from their path, for their feet run to evil and make haste to shed blood. Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird” (Proverbs 1:10-17 MKJV).
Man, in his self-righteousness, thinks to serve God in many ways. One of those is in his false conception of love and humanistic endeavors. Many are those believing that unity is a good thing. They do not recognize the attempt at unity at the Tower of Babel, God’s recorded disapproval, and do not recognize the words of the One they presume to serve, Who said:
“Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth. I did not come to send peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a man’s foes shall be those of his own household” (Matthew 10:34-36).
Unity in Christ is wonderful, and inevitable, but are not rebels against God the ones seeking “unity” in corruption?
Many today presume to keep the Levitical Feasts, such as Passover and Tabernacles. Do they? Can they? What does the Lord and the Scriptures have to say about such “Feast-keeping”?
What a debate there has been from the very beginning on this matter of free will, ever since Adam and Eve exercised a choice contrary to God’s command that they not eat of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil! As it was demonstrated, the desire and demand for free will is the expression of the very essence of sin. In this section we address the false teaching that man has a free will, and can exercise it for good.
GotQuestions presents itself as the one-stop shop for answers to all your questions about God and the Bible, from a Christian perspective. We show that this is not true – their perspective is their own, one born of flesh, not the Spirit of God. His thoughts and ways are not men’s, and men’s are not His, no matter if they claim to represent Him.
One prevalent phenomenon in the world today is that there are people who aspire to be Jewish in custom, tradition and language, thinking they will, thereby, draw closer to, and please, the Creator. It would appear that in the forefront of these things is the “proper use” and even pronunciation of the “true Name” of the Creator. Many believe the correctness of the verbal Name to be so important as to determine one’s eternal destiny. We know not just His Name, but Him. Those who presume to know the “correct” Name do not know Him. Indeed, in their stance they prove they do not know Him. Many have confronted us on this matter, and this paper is a sampling of some of those confrontations and our responses.
The traditional practices of religious Hutterite colonies are killing them daily. They have put their trust in the forms of their fathers and have not known the Lord or His ways. We show how they err from the true faith, in common ways found in many religious denominations and movements. It is God’s will that all come out of these dead ways to have life, health, and peace in Him.
Islam comes with violence and murder throughout the world, as explicitly required of Muslims in the Koran (as herein proven), declaring itself to be the true representation, and in the true service of God, the Creator of all things, Whom they call “Allah.” Islam comes contradicting the recorded and crucial declarations of the Lord Jesus Christ, Who is none other than the Creator and the Truth.
Jesus Christ or Yehoshuah HaMashiach, the Prince of Peace, has come, has personally made Himself known to us, as He has to many, and has empowered us to declare that He lives and reigns as Lord of all. He has revealed the veracity of the Holy Scriptures to us, both Old and New Testaments, and has also made known to us, as to many, the utter falsehood of the Koran and its misrepresentation of Him, as well as the falsehood of almost all of nominal Christendom and its ungodly interpretations of the Holy Scriptures and misinterpretations of Him. Jesus Christ do we now declare to you, in truth, as He is, to the world, as its only hope of salvation through faith in Him, His shed blood on our behalf, and in His victory over death:
“Be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Whom you crucified, Whom God raised from the dead, in this Name does this man stand before you whole. This is the Stone which you builders have counted worthless, and He has become the Head of the Corner. And there is salvation in no other One; for there is no other name under Heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:10-12 MKJV).
What a peculiar thing that men should call themselves witnesses of the God they do not recognize or acknowledge. How, then, can they be His witnesses? We witness the truth to them in these correspondences, so that they might be delivered of this delusion.
When God sends His servants, Christ’s authority is represented and glorified. When men come by their own initiative in the Name of God, Christ is misrepresented and degraded. They may say some similar things, but it is another spirit by which they speak and not by the Spirit of God. The children of truth will hear and see the difference.
Read Martin Luther and you can hear the essential spirit and approach of what is commonly called Christianity today, which is presumed and accepted by many to be true. But it is not. Hear what Luther was missing, and what you are missing if you follow him, whether under his name or another.
Here is a collection of letters that deal with the works, tenets, and beliefs of those adhering to that presumptuous and fanciful false religion called Mormonism.
In 1976, the Lord spoke to me saying, “I am hurting! I am hurting!” He said His people were believing lies, thinking they believed godly truth, and those lies were killing them. He was hurting because they were hurting. The prominent gospel preached in evangelical circles is an insidious one, a product of deceived and ignorant men, naively serving Satan and his bride, Mystery. Herein, we explicitly identify it for what it is.
Someone professing Christ comes to us with doubts about the doctrine of “once saved, always saved.” He thought he was saved, but wonders how that can be after years of slavery to the sin of adultery. Indeed! Was this a fall from grace, or was he never saved to begin with? One can’t lose what one doesn’t have. This writing defines the terms of our salvation and how they are applied in daily life, shedding light on the path for all true pilgrims in Christ and for all those snared in sin who have yet to know true repentance and the power of God in a new life.
What is wrong with joining together with others who profess Christ and mutually promise to commit themselves to doing good? In the sight of God, everything. Let us show you why and how.
What are we to make of Rick Warren’s The Purpose Driven Life? Is this a book and teaching that can help you live a useful and fulfilling life as a follower of Jesus Christ, preparing you for eternity? Those are its implied and stated objectives. We show how this is not true in the least! Rick doesn’t know what he is talking about, because he doesn’t know the One of Whom he speaks.
Can people receive sure guidance if only they concentrate on accessing their “Inner Light” and hearing the voice of God for themselves, as Quakers do? Here’s the story of one man who embraces George Fox’s false teaching with disastrous results, because he despises the true route of repentance by faith. “Surely He scorns the scorners; but He gives grace to the lowly” (Proverbs 3:34 MKJV).
Having failed to reform the Catholic Church, reformers like Calvin inspired men to make churches in their image, and they have been reforming ever since, still getting nowhere. They refuse to acknowledge or follow the Head of the True Church of God.
While God prohibits making or having images in a context of worship, cults, as those who do their own thing outside of Him, often make or have them. Whereas these things are seen by man as godly, and indicative of piety, they are a sure sign of false religion and a continuation of pagan traditions and practices dressed up as “Christian.” These are the very things the children of Israel were told to completely destroy, a command that is indicative of how truly odious to God, and dangerous to man, these things are.
Sappy Stories with Mushy Morals
We receive well-meaning mass circulated stories meant to inspire, but which, through sheer artificiality, misplaced affections, mistaken notions, and contrived meanings, provide us, and now you, with abundant material for other valuable lessons not intended.
The world is filled with the humanistic philosophy that says we can do anything we put our minds to doing, if only we believe, and are persistent and committed. Many are the “motivators” who presume to better their pocketbooks and society, invariably in that order. This philosophy, in savory ways to the ego of man, brushes aside all recognition of God and His sovereignty. It brushes aside the concepts of sin, of the consequence of breaking God’s laws, of the supremely needful sacrifice of the shed blood of Jesus Christ for our deliverance from bondage, and of repentance from sin, the wilful independence from God. In essence, the preaching of the innate power to do whatever we will if we choose, apart from Jesus Christ, renders Him a fool and His work nothing better than a good example of “positive thinking.” In considerable detail, we refute this philosophy.
Seventh Day Adventism
Does proclaiming the seventh day as the Sabbath, even naming yourself after this true gift from God, make you right with Him? Did not the Pharisees have the right day, too? Adventists, despite what they think, are just another sectarian group teaching self-righteousness and divisiveness over doctrine.
Paul Young constructs a shack built on the shifting sands of man’s thoughts passed off as “theology,” whereas God builds His House on the Sure Foundation of Truth in Jesus Christ, His Son. There is no compatibility or comparison.
Shinji Shumeikai is a Japanese religious organization whose name means “divine love” and “supreme light.” Its founder, Mokichi Okada, has the honorary title, Meishusama, meaning “Master of Light.” Only the Lord Jesus Christ, however, Who is the incarnation of Divine Love, can be called the Master of Light; He alone can, will, and does save unloving and sin-darkened mankind.
Many believe the Shroud of Turin to be a burial cloth used to wrap Jesus’ dead body, bearing His physical image supernaturally imparted at His resurrection. What do the Scriptures and the Lord say about this? They are not silent
Creatures presume to take their Maker and use Him any way they will to accomplish their desires. It is as ridiculous as clay forming the potter, even while the clay is on the wheel and the potter is in his chair. Theophostic prayer is just another one of those many religious fads and fantasies we address as presumption and wickedness before God.
What a pernicious god is the trinity, dividing the Indivisible God into pieces and thereby diminishing Him into an indecipherable mess. Trinity worshippers demand that Christians bow to this abomination made in the likeness of their own confusion, threatening death (ostracism, condemnation, even murder) to those who don’t comply. In this section, we expose the idolaters and their idol in order to liberate those held hostage to the damnable lies.
The “Trinity Broadcasting Network,” also known as “The Blasphemy Network” (TBN), presents Christianity as a carnival – “a frenetic disorganized (and often comic) disturbance suggestive of a large public entertainment.” This is the work of Paul and Jan Crouch and their associated band of thieves, knaves, liars, and pretenders. But God isn’t mocked. “For he sowing to his flesh will reap corruption from the flesh” (Galatians 6:8 MKJV).
Many are the definitions and descriptions of a “cult.” The determination of what or who is a cult is invariably subjective. We have taken the term as it is commonly meant and used today (as a condemnation of religion not perceived to be true or legitimate), and have identified the essence of it by contrast to the lives and examples of the Lord Jesus Christ and His disciples, as recorded in Scripture. This is a true definition and legitimate determination of the religious manifestations of good and evil in the world.
We were challenged to read what some “Bible experts” have to say about the Sabbath and their arguments for Sunday-keeping (as if we have not heard). The complex and tortured reasonings of these scholars provide a perfect backdrop for the simplicity and power of God’s Word to illuminate the truth to those who come to Him as little children. What rest we have in believing Him! The Sabbath indeed!
The Twelve Tribes
Many groups claim to be God’s people, but few claim to be actually creating His Kingdom on earth now. The Twelve Tribes have put their money where their mouths are, so to speak, by creating communities that encompass all aspects of life. Surely God’s Kingdom does no less. So why are they in our false section? Validity depends on why and how, not what you do. There is God’s work, and there is man’s imitation. The Tribes are the latter.
Referred to by outsiders as “Two by Twos,” this is a group that doesn’t name itself, doesn’t publicize its existence, generally meets in homes, and considers itself to be following the Lord Jesus Christ by imitating His ways and restoring/continuing His church according to their interpretation. On this last point, they are wrong.
Universalism – The False Kind
Lest anyone should think otherwise, we do believe in the reconciliation of all things by the Lord Jesus Christ. What we address is a lawless attitude in the Name of the Lord, and in the name of “universalism.” We say (as does the Bible), “work out your salvation with fear and trembling,” to which universalists cry, “Work! Work!” They say that because “Christ did it all,” therefore there is nothing more for the believer to do. See our answers within these pages.
Vegans would have you believe raising animals for food is akin to murder and that mankind shouldn’t use animals for any purpose. These whacky beliefs fly in the face of reality and commonsense as established by the Scriptural record and mandates of God. A vehement vegan shows us no mercy while trying to convince us of the compassion of veganism. Humbug!
Every false thing is revealed by the Truth. There are times when one sees things in the Light of Day, and there are times when the Light of Day speaks for Himself. It was the latter concerning George and Hazel Hill and their Victory Church.
Was Paul Legit?
There are some preachers of Christ who avidly denounce the apostle Paul as a false teacher. There are others, who, though not so blatantly opposed, don’t recognize the revelation and testimony of Jesus Christ through Paul or any of the Lord’s servants as God speaking. They’re all wrong and you’ll see how in this section, by God’s grace.
What do you think when a pastor of a Baptist Church prays, “Surprise me, God!” in front of 800 church attendees, and the next minute he is electrocuted in the bapistry? Did God answer him? If not, where was God when that happened? If He did answer, does that not say something about approaching God in such a flippant manner? We have the answers, from God.
