Pharisee equals Religionist.

Image
The religious world is inundated with the Pharisaic system that was prevalent in the earth-walk of Jesus. It is characterized by mixing the Gospel of God’s Grace with the ideologies, precepts and doctrines of men and the laws of the old covenant...that ungodly religious system, I refuse to support or submit to, even though religion presents it as Godly and in doing so have deceived many.



The mixed-grace gospel of the religious pharisees today preaches the message that salvation is by grace but maintained by obedience to the law and religious observances. It is a gospel that says one of God's blessings (salvation) is grace given, but holiness, sanctification, the amount God loves us, forgiveness for our failures and fellowship with God comes by keeping the law and the rituals of religion. This gospel denies that Christ did it all because after saving us by grace we have to do the rest to ensure our relationship with Him.

I will continue to voice opposition against the deceptions of…

Does Having a Spiritual Relationship with God Require Following some Religious Denomination?

Image
It is a historical fact that when a crises takes place, such as the tragedy of 9-11, denominated buildings experience an increase in attendance, bible sales increase, books on "so called prophecy" fly off the shelves as preachers avail of the opportunity to attribute the tragedy to God's judgement and try to scare the hell out of people to get them to join their particular brand of religion. Yet when the crisis is over, people revert to the way it was before the crises and religion plugs along in it's religious stupor. Is this going to religion the same​ as going​ ​to ​God? Not by a long shot.
"And all those who expect to be justified by keeping the law are doomed to destruction, as it is written in the Scriptures, Cursed is everyone who does not perfectly observe all that is written in the law [Deut. 27:26].  It is clear that no one can be brought into right standing with God by observing the law, those in right standing with God will live by faith.…

The Unbelievableness of the Believable Beliefs I Believed.

IS THE BELIEF WE BELIEVE A BELIEVABLE LIE
 For most of my life I though I knew what it meant to be a believer within the Community of the Redeemed.

Repent of my sins by saying the sinner's prayer.
Attend some segregated denomination building for the Sunday-programmed-event-driven meeting that was called Church.
Don't associate with sinner's.
Talk Christianized, act Christianized, dress Christianized, look Christianized.
Respect the denominated building as the “House of God”
Receive spiritual food from the trained denominated seminarian.
Obey the religious rules and regulations pertaining to the religion of choice.
Don't date non-christianized girls or girls belonging to a different denomination because they are not of “like faith”.
Don't go to dances.
Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy, which for some reason was the first day of the week and not the seventh day.
Pay your tithes, because all true believers do.
My performance, good or bad, determined how much…

The Bible

Image
Often, when criticisms are felt to be most convincing, religionists will attempt to divert attention from the issues by attacking the character of their critics.
The criticism that upsets the religionists is the assertion that they elevate scripture to the level of Christ, if not over Christ.

I know how unsettling this thought can be because I was once under the influence of such deception myself.

Defending the Bible became very disturbing to me when I observed that the best efforts to defend the Bible did nothing but win or lose an argument and distract people from developing a genuine relationship with Jesus by not hearing the gospel of God's love and grace.

I believe that bringing people into a genuine relationship with Jesus is more important than defending the Bible. In defending the Bible we get bogged down on matters that are inessential to salvation's relationship. Discussions seldom reach a point at which the love that God demonstrated to us through Jesus would be expre…

Are You an Easy Prey for Wolves in Sheep's Clothing.

Image
The Scriptures are clear: false prophets are wolves that devour unsuspecting believers. Jesus said: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” (Matthew 7:15)
Paul had this to say about false teachers: “I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them.” (Acts 20:29-30).
Despite these warnings from Paul and Jesus, many people are still spiritually ignorant therefore, are easy prey for false prophets?”
Some ways to tell if you are an easy prey for wolves:
You think you cain't be deceived because you are a believer. If you believe you can’t be deceived, then you are ignoring numerous warnings in Scripture about the need to guard against false prophets and false teachers (Matthew 7:15; Acts 20:29-30; 2 Peter 2:1). You are overly impressed by signs, wonders and miracles. Ma…

Religion's Deception

Image
.

Religion would not exist without deception because it would lose control over the people. The way it keeps control over people is by convincing the religiously deceived that deception is truth!

The hinderance of religion to the cause of Christ is subtly deceptive and most of the people involved in religion are ignorant of its deceptiveness thus, accept the deception as truth.

The Gospel Truth can never be realized until there is first a comprehension of religion's deceptiveness. Once it's deceptiveness is understood the truth will cleanse and reform the mind-set that was formed by deception's lie. To embrace truth there has to be an acknowledgment and a understanding of deception in the area that truth is trying to penetrate. Deception is strong enough to maintain its hold to the throne of the mind, however, the truth that is truth chips away, bit by bit at the deception's stronghold so as to enable the deceived to see the error of deception's deceptiveness, and tha…

Is the KJV Bible the Inerrant Word of God? Part 1

Image
Sadly, in our modern times, it is rather difficult to read a version of the Scriptures which is not already predigested, spit back out, and the interpreted Word of God. In fact, this is the tragic state of most modern versions of the Bible. If we are truthful with ourselves, we must be willing to admit that even our beloved KJV Bible has fallen victim to the same process, and is likewise the interpreted Word of God. If you are not yet aware of this important fact, please be advised that similar to all other versions of the Bible, our beloved KJV Bible is not based on the original autographs -- that is the original Hebrew and Greek manuscripts -- which were lost to time, decay and willful human destruction many centuries ago.

Are you Living by Circumstancial Evedence?

Image
Sometimes when going through circumstances people become cantankerous and hard to live with. We can get mean, rebellious, critical, negative and even blame God for what is happening and become angry at God. This doesn't mean that we have forsaken our relationship with God, but it does mean that we have an unsurrendered self life, we are being governed by our carnal nature. But through all this God is faithful wants us to change our self life for His life. It is not the circumstances that will defeat us it is our reaction to the circumstances.
The Christ life within us is everything necessary for righteousness, victory, and authority over every circumstance of our life. It just need development and our correct reaction to circumstances will help develop it. This takes our whole spirit, soul and body being surrendered to God so He can work out the spirit of authority so you will take authority and practice a sonship relationship.
Now in that sonship relationship there…

Jesus in Us...BUT...is Jesus Living Through Us?

Image
All religious denominational fountains are dry when it comes to satisfying the inward thirst of your spirit. They are dry because there is no spiritual substance in them. They look great to the self-righteous carnal nature, but once you get into them there is no genuine relationship with God thus, no genuine spiritual satisfaction.
Every time you say yes to God and no to religion, another spiritual block is added to your spiritual foundation. Every time you obey the Word instead of your carnal fleshly desires another spiritual block is added. You are maturing and building a house that Jesus desires to reside in and work through.
Believers are built from within, not without. This is what we have to understand. Religion wants to mould us into its image. This is the conflict between your sprit and the carnal nature. Once you fully surrender to the life that is within, your striving to do good ceases and you will rest in His grace. But it is hard to die to self and to relig…

Identy Crisis.

Image
Unless we are in a love relationship with God and realize our identity is found in God, our sense of value as individuals will come from how well we perform as a person and how well other people acknowledge or reward our performance in order to be accepted as a member in good standing by the group we associate with, religious or secular.

This leads to a false view of who we are because our identity is determined my what other people think.

Is the prevailing belief system of the religious world authenticated by Jesus Christ and Bible?

Image
While the vast majority claim that "Christianity" is the religion of the masses...to which I concur...I contend that it is not the way of the "Community of the Redeemed" that Christ came to establish. Christianity has become a well oiled religious institutionalized religion that is the greatest hindrance to the plan of God for the Community of Humanity and the Grace Gospel of Jesus Christ in this earth. 
This christian religion exists as the way to find God because of its heavy use in its misuse and abuse of the content and contextual setting of the Scriptures that is claimed to be the foundation of all segregated denominational groups. Although biblical terminology is heavily used, it is not Biblical and it is a false belief system based on what Paul calls "another gospel". This belief system is a counterfeit version of what Christ died and rose to create.
The god of religion...though claimed to be the God of the Bible...is more concerned wi…

How Do You Read the Bible?

Image
As believers within the religious denominational world we are taught and programed to study the bible as a rule book for daily living because it is “God's rulebook” No doubt, the bible contains many rules, but to say it is primarily about rules for believers to live by as a summation of the bible is wrong and it is lying.
Believers who misuse and abuse the bible this way are liars to put it bluntly!
Many who have never call the Bible “God’s rulebook” still treat it as nothing more than that. In the western religion the sermons that are preached are primarily about what you’re doing wrong, what you should be doing right, and how to not do what is wrong and how to do what is right.. The clear emphasis of such sermons is on you and what you must do in order gain and maintain salvation. This gives the impression that the Bible exists for the primary purpose of telling us how to live a moral life in order that we might also live the good life. But, is this the purpose of the bible? No…

An Exposition on the Fraudulent Fleecing of the Flock.

Image
Mixing lies with truth does not make what is being taught TRUTH.
What about this truth and lie mixture..."Tithing was a form of worship to God, and since we still worship God, we must still tithe." Makes sense, right?

Well if that is true I guess this statement must be true as well...Burnt offerings were a form of worship to God, and since we still worship God, we must still offer burnt offerings to God?
The mixture of the truth with a lie is ridiculous, idiotic and a deception of the devil that is accepted as truth by the religiously deceived.

"Will a man ROB God?" Preachers will give account one day for teaching this verse in Malachi 3:8 totally out of context for their own selfish gain. Denominational self-appointed hearlders of the gospel shame the pew-warmers for "robbing God" in tithes and offerings. This verse in Malachi certainly means what it says. Someone was defrauding God of tithes and offerings, but wait until you find out who is responsibl…

Is it Damagining to the Cause of the Gospel?

Image
I find no evidence in Scripture for religion, nor for denominational formation. The idea that religion is the way to find and hear from God is the gospel way is a lie that is believed to be truth by the religiously deceived.

The English word "religion" is etymologically derived from the Latin word religo, meaning to "bind up." Religion binds people up in rules and regulations or in ritualistic patterns of devotion.

The Origion/History of the Word Religion as per one source. "state of life bound by monastic vows," also "conduct indicating a belief in a divine power," from Anglo-Fr. religiun (11c.), from O.Fr. religion "religious community," from L. religionem (nom. religio) "respect for what is sacred, reverence for the gods," in L.L. "monastic life" (5c.); according to Cicero, derived from relegare "go through again, read again," from re- "again" + legere "read" (see lecture). Howev…

The Illuminated Sign by the Church Door Read "Everyone Welcome".

Image
I have seen the "Welcome Sign" over the door of many denominational building that extended an open invitation to all...but I have contemplated as to how much truth was to "Welcome Sign".

I have visited some of these denominational welcome signed buildings called Church and found the people to be very denominational indoctrinated and set in their ways, regarding what they believe and do. For the people who conform to what they believe and do what they do, were without a doubt welcome to be there and eventually, in order to be a member had to sign a document to confirm that they conform to the beliefs of the denomination along with participating in their rituals and practises.
But I wonder, if a dozen dirty and smelly homeless people from the ghetto...a bunch of drunks from the tavern down the street...a half dozen prostitutes walk in dressed in their street attire...a gay or lesbian couple walked in hand in hand...during the Sunday morning service...WOULD THEY BE T…

Some People Say "quote"

Image
“Some people say, “Once you learn to be happy, you won't tolerate being around people who make you feel anything less.” My Christ says, “Your job is to get off your self righteous butt and start reaching out to the difficult people because my ministry wasn’t about a bunch of nice people getting together once a week to sing hymns and get a feel good message, that you may or may not apply, depending on the depth of your anger for someone. It is about caring for and helping the broken hearted, the difficult, the hurt, the misunderstood, the repulsive, the wicked and the liars. It is about turning the other cheek when someone hurts you. It is about loving one another and making amends. It is allowing people as many chances as they need because God gives them endless chances. When you do this then you will know me and you will know true happiness and peace. Until then, you will never know who I really am. You will always be just a fan or a Sunday only warrior. You will…

Over Opinioned.

Image
Are you so opinionated that you deem your opinion to be the right opinion all the time? Well...I guess you are entitled to your own opinion even if it may be the wrong opinion! Hold to your opinion lightly because your opinion may not be the correct opinion! Once you preach and teach your opinion for so long it becomes doctrine to you and even though it may be false you deem it to be right!

Do Religious Experiences Validate Church Reality?

Image
Do religious experiences experienced during programmed-event-driven meetings, no matter how solemn or boisterous the atmosphere, resemble true Church reality? What passes for Church in Sunday-event-driven meetings is so far removed from what Church reality is that it fails at even being a cheap imitation. 
Some institutionalized churches bring in big name speakers, big name singers and set aside time for special meetings and call what takes place in these event-driven meetings, "Church reality". The meetings are set up by denominational organizers who, in some cases want to do a great work for God, but fail to see that Church reality is about God doing His great work in and through  ​His Community of the Redeemed​ in their ​ daily​ living of life.
Institutionalism has reduced Church to being a popular belief or assumption that has evolved around man-invented ideologies that is accepted as the norm and is confined behind four walls of a building doing event-drive…

Salvation is not about REFORMATION, it is about TRANSFORMATION.

Image
God did not send Jesus to reform, refine, renew, redo, or even recreate us...He came to make us a complete NEW CREATION in Christ Jesus. He came to do away with, obliterate our old nature and give us a NEW NATURE...HIMSELF. 
One of the most dangerous deceptive deceptions that Christendom is deceived by, is people sitting under teaching that is laced with a mixture of LAW and GRACE and believing it is the gospel. The law can only administer death (2 Cor 3"6-7). On the other hand it is the Grace and Love of God that sets us free from the Law of sin and death and alive unto Christ.
This mixture of Law and Grace herald by religion administers death not life...therewith, is my denunciation of, and my premise that Jesus came to put an end to religion.
This Law/Grace Gospel deceptiveness is the reason that many in Christendom don't understand why their spiritual hunger is not satisfied...their failure to please God...and why the "peace that passes all understanding" escap…

The Community of the Redeemed is more about Relationship Quality than it is religious Numeric Quantity.

Image
The institutional church loves so-called measurable quantifiable successes, and statistical measurements to satisfy their head office hierarchy and keep them from pulling the plug. Denominations that are in decline decide something has to be done to turn things around. Many turn to measurable programmed membership drive events as the only hope for a reversal of the decline they find themselves in.
Many denominations become preoccupied with trying to reach some kind of agreement over a measurable program they can use to measure membership increase. To raise caution regarding measurement solutions at such a time will get one labeled an enemy of positive change or a lazy good-for-nothing who is unconcerned about the decline in membership in the "church".
The way that institutional churches determines moral obligation and the viability of a denomination is that the end justifies the means in that there has to be enough members to financially support the operation …
