Dancing the Dance of Deception.



It is said that ; "the worst kind of deception is self-deception, I would add, that the worst kind of self deception is religious-deception.

Religious deception is an out of control disease epidemic that is infecting the gospel, to which the only cure is a proper understanding of the healing balm of God's GRACE. Grace is grossly misunderstood because God, the work of Christ on the cross and the work of the Holy Spirit is misunderstood by the religious world.

When people are deceived by false teaching they believe the false to be true and act as if the false is true. They are sincere but, are sincerely wrong! Such people are deceived into thinking things are one way when in reality they are a different way. This sort of thing has abounded since Christ's earth days, but has multiplied even more so in our day because of the religiously deceived broad road travelers who think they are narrow road travelers and have deceived many into believing the broad road to spiritual anemia is the narrow road to spiritual vitality.
Some of these deceptions are because of devil-inspired man-made ideologies as to: 
Who God is...who Christ is...who the Holy Spirit is and what His work is...the purpose of the bible...the authority of the bible...salvation...repentance...sanctification...justification...conviction...redemption...what and who the Church is...end time events...what evil is...the purpose of the Community of the Redeemed...denominated segregation...Sunday programmed-event-driven meetings...the accomplishment of Christ's death and resurrection...the Mosaic law...Jesus' grace gospel...God's love...God's wrath...denominated pastors...religious teachers...self-made prophets...evangelism...godliness...sin...bible interpretation...bible application...Christ within...Christ living His life through people...who people are in Christ...the tribulation period...eternal punishment...everlasting hell fire...unity...segregation...religious hierarchy...etc.

We are instructed to; Retain the standard of sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. Guard, through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, the treasure which has been entrusted to you. (2 Timothy 1:13-14)

In the Community of the Redeemed, God’s truth is to be paramount. To manipulate, distort that truth, mix it with man-made rules and regulations, or mix grace and law together and present it as the Gospel, is presenting another gospel that is not the gospel at all. That’s why Paul told the Galatians, “If any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed!” (Galatians 1:9).

In addition to not engaging or accommodating false teachers, the clear duty of every believer is to guard the truth from the deadly, corrupting influence of religious man-made doctrinal hog-wash.  A godly believer remains true to Christ and His message, he doesn’t dance the religious deception dance.

To understand the amazing grace of our loving God will require the unlearning of what we have learned by our un-hearing of all the religious stuff that obscures the good news of God's love and grace. Only then will the light of the gospel of grace shine bright enough to expose the religious deception that imprisons us because of our wrong religious learning.

If religious truth is not the truth of Christ...It is deception's lie that is agreed upon to be truth BUT, it is still a lie!
