The Repository of Truth.

Image
The claim by inerrants that the Bible is the inerrant repository of Truth is an affront to Jesus because the Bible itself, by the record of Jesus Himself, declares that He Himself is Truth...“I am the Truth”. The Bible also says; “Let God be true but every man a liar.” That means that the translators and transcribers that put the Bible together, did the punctuation, established chapters and verses were men, therefore, they are included in the group that are liars. Therefore, if every man is a liar, their translation and transcribing contained some error, thus Bible is not inerrant. Thus, all its repository is not Truth.

The Bible is not the totality of God’s dealing with mankind, rather it is a road map that leads to Jesus, whose dealings with man will continue as long as mankind is around. Jesus is not contained, restricted or imprisoned between the leather bound covers of a man-constructed book called the Bible. Jesus is much bigger than the Bible! It is Jesus who gives life to th…

Why did the Pharisees Reject God's Grace?

Image
For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not; but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him. (Matthew 21:32)

Why did the Pharisees rejected the grace of God , could it be that the concept of grace underminded their religious system and they would have to relinquish their manipulation and control? Not only does religion not understand God's love for us, it also holds people’s failures against them as a reason for not loving or accepting them, while God's Word tells us that love keeps no record of wrong: "And above all things have fervent love among yourselves: for love shall cover a multitude of sins." (1 Peter 4:8)

When a person continues to go over things in their mind hoe people wronged them they will become bitter and hold resentment in their heart while overlooking the love that God has  for them, and they will fail to show that same love towards people …

The Freedom of Grace.

Image
Religious Law-Keepers fear freedom. This is borne out by statements like this..."I wish hyper-grace was true, then I would be able to go out and commit adultery and not have to worry about going to heaven. To make such a statement shows a lack of understanding as to what the Grace Gospel really is. It shows that a relationship with God is not based on love because if the law was of none effect he would indulge in the lusts of the flesh and go on a sinning spree, His relationship with God is based on the fear of God and the fear of "hell fire."

Religion is afraid that if law keeping isn’t enforce, people will go on a sinning-spree without the Law standards to live by. Religion is apparently ignorant of the fact that Christ lives in the believer and desires to live His life through them.

If I am not under the Law, why shouldn’t I be an adulterer? Because Christ who lives in me isn’t a adulterer.
If I am not under the Law, why shouldn't I be a hater? Because Christ who li…

Why do I choose to be a Religionless Believer?

Image
"Isn't it to bad, he use to be such a good Christian, so involved in the Church, now he rarely ever goes to Church. I never thought that he would give up on God."
Take heart...I haven't...but I have given up on religion as the way to God, the way to maintain my relationship with God and the denominational segregetional buildings as the "Church" and the "House of God."

I believed in religion...at least my brand of religion...as long as I was hooked on its mind altering religious fixes of denominated indoctrinated Bible interpretations that made spiritual religious sense to my denominated brain-washed mind and to my spiritual desensitized heart caused by man-made religious programming.

As long as I accepted what rolled over the lips of God's "spiritual mouth piece" (or so they led me to believe) as the avenue of my spiritual enlightenment from God and what He wants of me, I was satisfied with what I believed being a believer was…

REALLY! IS THIS THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST?

Image
“The GOD that HOLDS you OVER THE PIT OF HELL, much as one holds a spider, or some loathsome insect over the fire, ABHORS YOU, and IS DREADFULLY PROVOKED: HIS WRATH TOWARDS YOU BURNS LIKE FIRE; HE LOOKS UPON YOU AS WORTHY OFF NOTHING ELSE, BUT TO BE CAST INTO THE FIRE; HE IS OF PURER EYES THAN TO HAVE YOU IN HIS SIGHT; YOU ARE TEN THOUSAND TIMES MORE ABOMINABLE IN HIS EYES, THAN THE MOST HATEFUL VENOMOUS SERPENT IS IN OURS. YOU HAVE OFFENDED HIM INFINITELY more than ever a stubborn rebel did his prince; and yet it is nothing but his hand that holds you from falling into the fire every moment. It is to be ascribed to nothing else, that you did not go to hell the last night; that you was suffered to awake again in this world, after you closed your eyes to sleep. And there is no other reason to be given, why you have not dropped into hell since you arose in the morning, but that God’s hand has held you up. There is no other reason to be given why you have not gone to hell, since YOU HAVE…

When God Speaks Who Hears?

Image
Have you ever wondered why the religious "spiritual elite" pharisees, the priests of the synagogues, the Jewish theologians of the day were unaware of their Messiah’s birth...yet...the nonreligious, "spiritual pauper" sheep herders received the announcement of, and an invitation to go where the child lay to worship the Christ child. Why was the great spiritual event of the birth of the Savior not revealed to the religious theologically skilled in their own eyes and/or in the eyes of the religious world? Surely God knew that it would be the ultimate insult to those who pride themselves in their theological position, by revealing this liberating spiritual event to the unschooled "spiritual paupers" in religious theology.

The religionists however, have turned God’s way around to the religious way to where the theologically denominated spiritual seminarian is schooled and put into a position of leadership as God’s spokesperson to bring spiritual revelations …

Look Beyond the Human Factor for Spiritual Insight.

Image
One of the things that disturbs me, (for what that is worth) about Sunday-go-meeting services and televised evangelists is that spiritual insight usually comes...to the "pew-warmers" or "couch-listeners"...served religious platters by man-trained denominated professionals, appointed by the denominational hierarchy to feed God’s people a diet of denominated  hash that they say is given by God to them for the spiritual welfare of people. It seems the denominated elite does not accept that the Spirit loves to speak to God's children about spiritual things concerning His love and will for our living life and delights to give us the honor of sharing in the Community of the Redeemed that which God gives us via His Spirit for the Community of Humanity.

The dominate teaching of religion is..."God” has placed denominated spiritual leaders and teachers in His Body and if what we, the lay person, believes to be from God, differs from the views of the man-appointed, …

Does Searching the Scripture ensure that I Won't be Deceived by Someone Teaching It.

Image
If I sit and listen to you interpret the Bible, and then I check the scriptures to see if what was said lines up with scripture or not, and I conclude it is not, is it still possible that what you taught is the truth of God?

May I answer my own question...Yes it is. Why?

Because if I search the scripture from my preconceived viewpoint, to solidify my denominated belief and that belief is not correct, then even though I see the scripture as validating my belief I am wrong in that validation because I have twisted the scripture to line up with what I already believe rather than letting it formulate what I believe.

No matter how spiritual in-tune we may think we are in knowing the mind of God, we are never so in-tune that we will ALWAYS INTERPRET the scripture correctly. Why? Because we are human and our interpretation may be from simply a mental accent to prove my doctrine and not the Spirit's infusion of the truth, because of my preconceived idea as to what it means. However, the …

Is There a Time When the Bible is the Wrong Source for Divine Guidance?

Image
Every believer that is the salt of the earth realizes the vital role of the scripture in life application. However, what is seldom understood by Bible Idolators is that unless people's hearts are in tune to the Spirit giving the written word life, a thorough Bible knowledge and deep reverence for the Bible will lead to Bible Idolization and misinterpretation. The Bible without the Spirit's infusion is just another letter bound book of knowledge that when read and interpreted mistakenly will lead people wrongly! 

The devil used the scripture of God wrongly to tempt Jesus...the Living Word of God. It was central to his plot to lure the Son of God from His Divine Mission. 

It was scripture used wrongly that convinced devout religious law scholars that Jesus was a demon-possessed madman that should be killed for the good of the nation. No doubt, it was also Saul's wrong religious knowledge of Scripture that played a role in firing him up to kill the followers of Christ, thinking…

Does Performance Perfection Equal Righteousness?

Image
For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not; but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him. (Matthew 21:32)

Why did the Pharisees rejected the grace of God, could it be that the concept of grace under-minded their religious system? Not only does religion try to get us to overlook God's love for us, it will also try to get us to hold things against others out of spite and unforgiveness, while God's Word tells us that love keeps no record of wrong: "And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity [love] shall cover the multitude of sins." (1 Peter 4:8)

When a person continues to dwell on things that people have done against them they are eating from the root of bitterness yields to the fruit resentment poisons their  heart causing blindness to the love that God has  for them rendering them unable to show forgiveness, mercy and the lo…

Are Prophecies and Predictions that Fail from God?

Image
If you heard a preacher state;

The Lord also tells me to tell you in the mid 90's, about '94-'95, no later than that, God will destroy the homosexual community of America. [audience applauds] But He will not destroy it - with what many minds have thought Him to be, He will destroy it with fire. And many will turn and be saved, and many will rebel and be destroyed.

In 2000 that Jesus will appear physically very soon in many churches to signal the nearness of the second coming.

That there are 9 beings within the Godhead. 3 beings (Tritheism) each having their own trinity of beings within each."

That after his crusade in South America in 2002, that he was certain that he would return to America with video footage of Jesus appearing on stage during the crusades, because Jesus had told him this was going to happen.

That very soon people would no longer need to take their deceased loved ones to the morgue. Instead, they should be placed in front of the television during the…

The Idolized Bible.

Image
Though the original manuscripts of scriptures that were inspired by the Holy Spirit, may be found in a collection of writings that make up the Bible it does not authenticate Bible inerrancy. The Bible was WRITTEN BY HUMAN FALLIBLE MEN. Those writings were translated from the original languages and INTERPRETED, once again by FALLIBLE MEN, that WERE NOT INSPIRED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT but by various other motives including fulfilling the wishes of King James. If those translations and versions of the scriptures were inspired and guided by the the Holy Spirit there would we have so much ambiguity and the formations of so many different denominations all claiming to have the right interpretation of the Bible? Would we not only have ONE SINGLE VERSION because the Holy Spirit ONLY SPEAKS TRUTH?


The power of deception lies in (not the Bible itself) but various Bible interpretations and applications of the its scriptures, that is why there are so many church denominations, each with their own TW…

Does "Religion” Drain The Scripture of Spiritual Substance?

Image
Does the religious institutional “Church” have a lack of spiritual vision, an excess of mystery ignorance regarding Church reality, an over abundance of awe-lessness for God, and is religion void of reality in experiencing a dynamic intimate relationship with God causing them to be dull in understanding the believers need to experience the reality of God? Is religion responsible for saints hearing talking denominated mouth-pieces explain God and the bible according to their denominated beliefs, draining the bible of its spiritual substance?

Are religious leaders more interested in interpreting scripture in light of their belief system, while believers in relationship with God are more interested in experiencimg  Christ’s purposes and passion?

Spiritual maturity grows from an intimate relationship and a dynamic experience with the living God...not a intimate relationship and an experience with dead religious institutions.

The world began with the story of God and His plan an…

Hellish Ideas About God

Image
IS GOD A GOD OF ETERNAL PUNISHMENT?
IS the implication that God tortures people with eternal punishment in the torture chambers of the fires of hell destructive to the character of a loving and merciful Father?

Would some of the believers who believe that hell is the most grotesque epitome of punishment and suffering that could ever be invented, yet believe that people God created out of love will spend eternity in such a place that He has sanctioned...answer some questions for me.

1. Is God’s character of love (God is love) maligned?
2. Does the everlasting mercy of God run out?
3. Does the devil win out over Jesus in that he ends up with the vast majority of the people that God created for Himself, with him?
4. Does it exalt the devil and make Jesus Christ a failure?
5. Does it contradict the teaching of scripture?
6. Does it contradict teachings of early church fathers?

Thanks in advance for your input.

Is Hell an Inferno of Fire?

Image
I am not a theologian, nor am I the son of a theologian. I am not a prophet, nor am I the son of a prophet. I am not a scholar, nor am I the son of a scholar. I am not a sadist, nor am I a son of a sadist.
BUT!
I am a son of my MERCIFUL, KIND AND LOVING FATHER GOD.
As His son, I detest and disagree to the greatest extent possible the slanderous, demoralizing, demeaning, disrespecting, dishonoring, devilish accusation, by those who call themselves my spiritual siblings...by portraying my loving Father as a conceited, egotistical, revengeful sadist who will torture men, women, children and newborn babies in the torture chamber of hell’s eternal punishment because they died never having heard of Jesus and the plan of salvation or refused to accept Jesus as savior, if they have heard.

Now, I know my "bible knowing" religionist siblings will not agree with my view of God regarding hell, but know this, just because religion has believed in, and taught the fires of hell for so…

Is God An EGOISTIC EGOMANIAC TERRORIST?

Image
Is God the egotistic, egomaniac monster that bible believing religionists make Him out to be with their bizarre theology that He will forever torture billions on top of billions of people that He created out of love in the eternal torture chamber of hell fire, not only the people who rejected the gospel...but also the people who never heard there was a gospel to reject?

Why would so many “bible loving” people blaspheme our loving Father God by such an accusation? Why would people claim they love God have such a sadistic low opinion of God? They condemn to hell the people of a race wanting to overtake the world and for training their own children to be able to accomplish that task by becoming suicide bombers, or for killing their own people even their babies and children. They also condemn men. women. children and babies to hell because they rejected to accept Christ or could not accept Him because they never heard of Jesus or His gospel.  These same “bible loving” people make God out…

A Complaint By People Against Religionists.

Image
One of the biggest complaints people have against "Christians" is that they come across as flaking fakers and hypocritical bigots. One of the reasons for that is their relationship is based on a religious routine rather than in the Spirit of Christ. 

Most religionists talk like they have all the answers to life and maintain that the bible contains every solution to life's problems. One well known preacher's slogan was..."You don,t have any problems all you need is Jesus." But the fact is, they often prove by their actions that they're often just as screwed up or more screwed up, frustrated, confused and have the just as many of the same problems as the rest of humanity. To make matters worse, rather than simply pointing to Christ as the answer to what ails them, they point them to their ministry and their church to hear the gospel... Ah, "church"...the building where religion manifests all its wisdom, emotion, beauty and charm and where seminar…

"Denominations Are Not The Problem Causing Division"...so states a Religionist!

Image
Here is one religionist's view on his being an effective spiritual warrior in God's victorious army. I guess religionist's like him consider themselves the ultimate spiritual warfare machine. they have their arsenals filled with bible verses to shoot from their cannon mouth, ready to fire at a moments notice to bind the devil from doing what is against God's will. The thing is, with all their spiritual armor they say they are protected with and all their screaming to cast out devils with the shooting of bible verses at people whom they think are demonized...the devil is still having a field day because their fighting against him is like fighting against a class 5 hurricane, having little or no effect at stopping it.

I have placed his comments in square brackets.

[The devil and his demons got it right too. I am a fighter. I am also a wrestler. I take my cue from Paul. Paul told the Ephesian church in Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but agains…

How Low Will Religionists Go To Merchandize the Gospel?

Image
Joel Osteen Church Cover Charge - Pay Per View Jesus PimpPreacher.com New Orleans Bureau  Well it’s official; there is now a cover charge to hear the word of God imposed by Joel Osteen. For those that are just so star struck with his watered down message can now pay a fee to look directly up his nose, to the tune of $147. After a buddy of mine told me about this “Preferred Seating” charge I had to do a little research to confirm if he was just being sarcastic, but low and behold there is an actual charge to get close to Pastor Joel Osteen. There is no need to talk about how many people are flocking to Houston to hear Osteen’s version of the gospel, but I had no idea that many of these people were paying a cover charge just to get closer to him. Here is the actual copyright from a website promoting the event: "Joel Osteen Key Arena - Fri 7:30PM Jan 06 2012  - Tickets for the Joel Osteen Seattle show at the Key Arena are on sale here without the hidden service charges you find on oth…
