False Prophets

Just as a butterfly can be attracted to a thistle,people can be attracted to false prophets and teachers.
The Bible is full of warnings to beware of false teachers. In the verse above, from the sermon on the mount, Jesus warns of false prophets and compares them to thornbushes and thistles. There are many Old Testament passages that warn of false prophets, and in the New Testament warnings come from Jesus, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Peter, Jude, James and, of course, Paul. Paul very clearly, in the book of Galatians, confronts false teaching and very emphatically states that any gospel, other than what he and the other apostles taught, is false teaching. Today, even in major denominations, false teaching is so rampant that churches and denominations that remain true to Biblical teachings are labeled as the ‘religious right, fundamentalist,’ etc. Members of these Bible believing churches are said to interpret the Bible too literally and are even called dangerous. For believing John 14:6 and other Biblical teaching, Bible believing Christians are accused of being narrow minded, exclusive, hateful, arrogant, and intolerant just to mention a few adjectives. Some political leaders suggest that certain Biblical teachings are hate speech and should be banned. This has already happened in Canada. Groups such as the Jesus Seminar (liberal Christian scholars) routinely deny or revise core Biblical teachings, including the resurrection and deity of Jesus Christ. Their views are presented on major network television specials as the authoritative last word on Christian theology with little mention, if any, of orthodox Christianity. The Presbyterian Church in America denomination separated from the larger USA Presbyterian Church about 30 years ago, and other denominations are now in turmoil over the same kind of issues. The following verses warn of false teaching: Jeremiah 5:31, Matthew 24:11, Acts 20:29-30, Romans 16:17-19, 2 Corinthians 11:13-15, Galatians 1:6-9, Colossians 2:8, 2 Timothy 4:3, 2 Peter 2:1-3, 1 John 4:1-3, Jude 1:3-4, Rev 2:2

Study and see just how far false apostles can go.

Study, and do what God asks.

My Blog exposes someone you would not expect.

After visiting your startup site, it is obvious that you are not Christian. I would welcome your revealing what your religion is and I will then be better able to minister to you about the eternal life that comes by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.

Hello,

You mention that you are saved by faith alone..

Yes, Christ said believe and you will be saved (John 3:16), But he also says, if you don't do works, you will not be let into heaven:


Matthew 24:41Then shall he (Christ)say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.46And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Notice that he says the "righeous" into life eternal.


Further, in revelation, the lukwarm chuch gets spewed out of his mouth because their "works" were neither hot or cold.

I do not follow the Pauline epistles as Paul teaches contrary to Christ.

Christ also said:

20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.Christ tells of

Rember, Paul was a pharisee.


I believe Christ that the Law still stands:

Jesus says Law remains:

Matthew 5:17-20:

17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

I believe the sabbath is Saturday. (No, I am not an 7th day adventist)I believe this as Christ said the sabbath was made for man and that he is lord of it. Christ followed the saturday sabbath and refers to it in the future...revelation (mat 24)
