Finding out the facts, discovering the truth.
Firstly no one can accuse me now of false partialities, hypocrisies, generalizations for I rightfully detail and I expose all bad churches even the Bad Pentecostal ones, Bad Baptist One, Bad Christian Missionary Alliance, and bad Plymouth Brethren dispensational ones..
As I look back in my life the last half a century some of the most immoral, despotic, cruel persons I have encountered in Canada were not just in the business world but actually pastors in various Christian churches and why was, is that? (Prov 31:8 KJV) “Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. 9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.” To be able to judge righteously, though, the Church itself and the Preacher now must be also righteous.
(John 4:23 KJV) But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
(John 4:24 KJV) God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Many people claim to be willing to help you. too often with questionable motives too, but basically in reality you still have to do it for yourself, you have to discover the truth yourself, it takes real work, being lazy will often lead you to misdirection’s, even into cults, and many have now as well. Sincerity itself is not any kind of protection against being duped, deceived. The Bible itself warns us Beware of men, next Cursed be he or she that puts their trust in any man.. The Church, the Assembly itself does not save you, Jesus alone does.
(2 Cor 11:14 KJV) And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
You do not need any others, for you have all the tools you need.. you have at your disposal the Bible, and prayer.. just pray and ask the Holy Sprit himself to guide and lead you into all truth as you read the Bible.. it is as simple as that.
Too many false persons try to define God solely based on their own limited personal experiences, knowledge, and if it did not happen to them it cannot happen to anyone else… and too many even lie and say they are experts on something they admit they have never even experienced now too… such as healings, gifts of the Spirit… they are mere pretenders rather too often still.
Follow after God alone . God speaks too .
The word of God is living and active, it penetrates even to the dividing of soul and spirit.., it judges the thoughts and intents of the heart. Heb 4:12
it does not need a man written books about 200 years ago to speak for it too..
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. John 10:27
Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God. Mat4:4 (There is no life without hearing words from the mouth of God.)
But we have to listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, to hear. Where is the basic Problem in doing so now? In seeking God directly? for I too after sitting under the mostly bad evangelical pastors, hirelings, for 3 decades, the next 3 decades I had seen that almost all of of my beliefs were false, unbiblical, the mere teachings of man, unsubstantiated by the Bible itself.
These days Finding a qualified shepherd is hard.. I have yet to find a really good one in the last 5 decades.. I have rightfully fired many of them for lying, slandering, adultery though already.. even helped to close one big really bad church, the Calgary Christian Center.. http://groups.msn.com/AFOLLOWEROFCHRIST
Finding a decent, viable, non cultural, non heretical, non sectarian, non polluted Church these days is also too often also hard. Mind you you have to keep on looking for it. Many claim they are good, like they lip service God they love him too, with mere words.
I have also dealt with the Alliance Churches, Calgary Christian center, Evangelical Missionary Church, United Church , Full Gospel Churches, Baptist Churches, Evangelical Free, Victory Christian Fellowship, First Assembly (Pentecostal), Salvation Army, Don Ross Ministries and the Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship; to name a few. And you should let another man praise you and not yourself.. I moved to Calgary at the age of 35 in 1980 and I had been a Christian for 20 years before that and for the next 15 years I in contrast could not find one decent honest Christian Pastor or Church in Calgary, in my witness they were all bunch of racists, social clubs, adulterers, liars, slanderers, gossipers, thieves, rich minded persons who despised the poor people etc.., Calgary was the third most unspiritual place I have been to in Canada
(2 Chr 16:9 KJV) For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.
(Prov 16:5 KJV) Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
(Prov 23:7 KJV) For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
(Isa 51:7 KJV) Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.
(Mat 15:8 KJV) This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
Persons who want to uplift their denominations, leaders, mere men, exalt themselves are still false..
(Acts 8:21 KJV) Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.
My clear rightful understanding of Plymouth Brethren is while they may have a few aspects of truth, in whole they are generally false, not true to the Bible… basically a sect, a Darby, Scofield cult.
The Plymouth Brethren movement was, is an independent work from that of the Holy Spirit, in which which Brethren believe that they now represent the true church established originally on the day of Pentecost. The two guiding principles of the movement were to be the breaking of bread every Lord’s Day, and ministry based upon the call of Christ rather than the ordination of men. They say they follow and obey the Scripture, refusing to follow human tradition and creed. Ironically they just put their own creeds, beliefs as substitute based on the writings of their own leaders, yes more mere men. While the Others still tend to call them Brethren, but they prefer to hide and to be called Christians, they not not like the truth of who they really are exposed fro who in his rigth mind now would follow after them too?
The Brethren claim seek to assemble in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and to maintain the apostolic pattern and simplicity which marked the churches of the days of the apostles all that while the falsely deny the existence of the Apostle’s prophets, healing today and the charismatic gifts of the Holy spirit now too. How dirtied can they get next?
The Plymouth brethren are part of one big happy Christian family? Nothing could be further from the truth. For they are rather an exclusive club opposed to Charismatics gifts, Healings. Casting out demons too it seems. I was also surprised how little they do like to talk about their owns sins, only the sin of others. The sin of not being a full part of their exclusive club.
The Exclusive Brethren believe in receiving no one at the Lord’s table who is not a true Christian in the fullest sense, including being a member of a fully separated assembly (an assembly of Brethren who associate only with Brethren and not with persons from other churches. It seems they too find it easier to hate others than to love them.
Dispensationalists are also rightfully accused of teaching different methods of salvation, different standards requirements too in their different defined dispensations periods
The Law was a curse, Gal 3:13, and Christ redeemed us from it. Does not exclude their too often sins, unloving, unchristlike behaviors, even towards others. They too often seems to still need to find real personal repentances from Sin.
While the Brethren say they Believe the Bible is the Word of God, they too clearly do have this unholy, desperate need to reinterpret almost every passages of the Bible suitable to their own liking.
I urge you read your Bible, and to find a true and not a pretending Bible teaching local church, if you are not in one, and if you absolutely cannot find one, start one yourself. A New Testament Church can be as small as two or three people, and Jesus is always there, because He hopefully lives in His people (John 14:23 ; Eph. 1:13 – 14).
Plymouth Brethren Dispensationalist are noted not for using the Holy spirit to personally guide and lead THEM and you into all truth, but the supposed Greek versions of the Bible, Men’s commentaries, their selected reading materials too..
Resources to Help You Find “Insights from the New Testament Greek” for Yourself: Even if you don’t know a word of Greek, but just get a Strong’s Concordance and a Greek-English New Testament Interlinear and feel like an expert at least..
Commentaries: And if you do not like what you read. write your own commentary, for many other dispensational Brethren do that.. and join the club here too
Historical, Cultural, Archeological resources”- such as Flavius Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews .. even though we all can now you can’t really find any accurate, detailed ones.. so that will help you to get really confused, lost. Or is that the real point?
The Jewish interpretation of history refers to the “first Temple period,” which was the period of time before the destruction of Jerusalem in 600 BC. The temple was destroyed and the Jews were uprooted out of the land for their apostasy and idolatry, they had blended Babylonian witchcraft and sorcery into their religion. They were carried away, eventually a remnant returned during the “second Temple period” when they rebuilt the temple during the times of Ezra and Nehemiah. The second Temple period lasted until the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD.
According to the Jews there is an ongoing restoration where they are being restored back with God in the promised land, known as the Zionist restoration. They look forward to the Kingdom, the time when they will rule the world. Every Gentile will be their slave. They believe the Bible teaches this, the rabbis teach the same in their Talmud and Kabbalah. But the New testament, Jesus, the Apostle do not teach this at all. Wow
Still the “basic promise of Dispensationalism is (the supposed) two purposes of God expressed in the formation of two peoples (Jews and gentiles, or Israel and the Church) who maintain their distinction throughout eternity.” (This approach would thus not offend the unrepentant Jews but it is still an unbiblical great hoax, a lie)
In direct contrast, Christian theology has always maintained the essential continuity of Israel and the church. The elect of all the ages are seen as one people, with one Savior, one destiny. This continuity can be shown by examining a few Old Testament prophesies with their fulfillment. Dispensationalists admit that if the church can be shown to be fulfilling promises made to Israel their system is doomed. If the church is fulfilling Israel’s promises as contained in the new covenant or anywhere in the Scriptures, then [dispensational] premillennialism is condemned.
“My brother, I am a constant reader of my Bible, and I soon found that what I was taught to believe (by Darby’s doctrine) did not always agree with what my Bible said. I came to see that I must either part company with John Darby, or my precious Bible, and I chose to cling to my Bible and part from Mr. Darby.” – Reverend George Müeller, a contemporary and past supporter of Darby http://dispensationalismrefuted.blogspot.com/
“Perhaps one of the greatest heresies of our day arises from a theological ignorance with respect to the Bible’s teaching on sanctification. While .. Many (Falsely) simply operate under the assumption that obedience, repentance, love for God’s law, and mortification of sin are unnecessary addendums to true faith, reserved for a special class of “spiritual Christians”, yet still optional for those “carnal Christians” who embrace Christ as Savior but refuse Him as Lord. How does (anyone,) Ryrie respond to the New Testament texts, especially in the gospels, which so obviously teach that both a change of mind and heart are necessary consequences of justifying faith? … While inconsistent dispensationalists can and do believe in the necessity of repentance, the logical conclusions of classic dispensationalism yield the kind of devastating errors which sees faith as nothing more than a change of mind with regards to the facts of the gospel. ” http://covenantgrace.blogspot.com/2008/02/some-of-puritans-believed-that.html
Ongoing continual personal repentance for sins is not optional.. but a necessary subjection
(1 Cor 9:27 KJV) But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
(Heb 12:9 KJV) Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
(Eph 5:24 KJV) Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
(1 Pet 3:1 KJV) Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; (1 Pet 3:5 KJV) For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
Dispensationalism is a system of theology that was first popularized by John Nelson Darby, 19th century British evangelist and forerunner of modern Christian fundamentalism. The false Scofield Reference Bible, written by Cyrus Ingerson Scofield, popularized dispensationalism in the United States. The world’s Jews must return to Israel for a dispensational interpretation of prophecy to be fulfilled. To facilitate that process, dispensationalists have been leading groups of pilgrims to Israel since Falwell’s first visit in order to win financial and political support for settlement activity. http://www.theocracywatch.org/christian_zionism_dispensationalism.htm
“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” -Romans 16:17-18 KJV
“Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.” -Jude 1:3-4
The false Brethren wresting of Holy Scriptures to support a line of dispensational reaching contrary to the actual written word of God is still also unacceptable
The Brethren oft repeated assertion that the present voice of the Holy Spirit is located in the utterance of men is an affront to the Holy Spirit.
“But in vain do they worship me, teaching as their teachings commandments of men. For, leaving the commandment of God, ye hold what is delivered by men to keep”, Mark 7: 7-8.
“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together unto him, that you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, that the day of Christ is at hand.” — 2 Thess. 2:1,2.Apostle Peter tells us in his second letter (1.16,19-2.3): For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty …. We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place …. Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that brought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you ….(1 Tim 1:7 KJV) Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.(Heb 5:12 KJV) For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
Dispensationalists who unacceptably have a very negative view of the latter days, end times on this world, now it seems to compensate for their often rejections by even main stream Christianity, and as I have even recently now too often now personally witnessed, even on my sites they have to still it seems falsely bash, slander, they falsely call others mentally unstable, biblically unsound, not real Christians, lie against the Pentecostals Christians too even in envy it seems cause they the Pentecostals undeniably are it seems one of the fastest growing group today in Christianity. These abusive, immoral rather Brethren who often do hide, disguise them as Gospel, Bible believing Christians only, are an unacceptable part of the un Holy wars on the net too.. The Brethren dispensational views and related false doctrines have undeniably now been refused, refuted and not accepted by main stream Christianity too.
DISPENSATIONALISM , AMONGST IT’S UNDENIABLE MANY BAD, FALSE TEACHINGS NOW TOO, IS A LIAR’S, A COWARD’S, A HIRELING’S FALSE COP OUT, A FALSE EXCUSE FIRSTLY NOT TO REALLY REPENT OF ONE ‘S PERSONAL SINS, FOR ONE NOT TO REALLY FOLLOW AFTER GOD AND HIS WILL FOR THEM, AND FOR ONE FALSELY NOT TO BE CULTURALLY ANDS SOCIALLY INVOLVED IN DEALING WITH THE EVIL OF THIS WORLD, HOPING TO AVOID PERSECUTING FROM THE JEWS AS WELL BY NOT ASKING THEM TO REPENT, OR TO SEE THEIR NEED OF ACCEPTING JESUS CHRIST AS THEIR MESSIAH, SAVIOR.
Imagine trying to build a whole theological central base on a few isolated Bible texts too now and now today, even Jacob and the Brethren too, so he Jacob – Israel who tried to get God’s blessing by deceit with the help of others is still at it today, refusing to admit that the blessings of God now, today, forever are only in, and through Jesus Christ the Messiah, he is trying to steal his own salvation and the promsied land now.
(Gen 27:19 KJV) And Jacob said unto his father, I am Esau thy firstborn; I have done according as thou badest me: arise, I pray thee, sit and eat of my venison, that thy soul may bless me.
The dispensationalist’s claims implicitly does involve them, God in duplicity and Christ in deception and thus no way can they be acceptable works of any REAL, professing Christians
Some persons recognize and treasure all born again believers who operate within a dispensational framework as brothers and sisters in Christ. whereas IN FACT IN ANY CHURCH IT SEEMS ONLY 30 PERCENT OF THE PERSONS AT THE MOST ARE REAL, BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS, ESPECIALLY IN THE BRETHREN CHURCHES TOO
(John 8:51 KJV) Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
Note the word IF.. all contracts require the continual, ongoing consent, agreement of both parties otherwise it is a false breach of contract.. so why have some groups falsely now left it out?
However, we must remember that Paul loved his fellow apostle Peter and esteemed him the senior and more honored of the two of them. Nevertheless, when it came to a point of theology that had profound implications for the purity and health of the Church, Paul was constrained by his love for Christ and the Truth publicly to withstand Peter to his face. (Galatians 2:11)
Therefore, out of love Like the Bereans nearly two thousand years ago, let us “search the Scriptures daily, to see whether these things are so.”
“A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth” (Proverbs 14:6)
