Surprise, surprise

As I also daily do read the Bible, it often surprises me how many so called Christians hold theological views that are in direct conflict of the Bible, are unproved  in the Bible even in regard to so many topics now too.. They occasionally even  rather do prefer to listen to the too often out of context, distorted verses out of the Bible quoted by the bad preachers.
Unlike each of you, I too once was ignorant, my own mind did not know, comprehend beforehand   what God has in store, had prepared for us, his requirements for us even to become a Christian, as well as to become Baptized in the Holy Sprit and much more.. http://comeholyspirit.wordpress.com/2009/03/27/true-christians-are-holy-ghost-baptized/
In reality even these days many  Christians SADLY themselves have never studied what  the Bible actually says about these God given, Holy Spirit equipped, gifted men, offices to the Christian Church Universal  by God, so they too are ignorant,  they do not know, they are even confused about the role that they all should play today in Christ’s Church. Because they often wrongfully leave it to others to read the Bible for them too they  thus are too easily deceived by the imposters, cults, sects, wolves in sheep clothing, false teachers, false prophets, false elders too. 
WHAT DO THE LIARS AND DECEIVERS DO? THEY LIE AND DECEIVE! HOW? BY TELLING HALF TRUTHS WHICH ARE FULL OF LIES AND DON’T TELL THE WHOLE TRUTH AND FAIL WHEN COMPARED AGAINST SCRIPTURE.   A HALF TRUTH IS STILL A LIE..   http://walthope.wordpress.com/2013/02/01/liars-and-deceivers/
They clearly give evidence that they do not know or actual read the bible.. That now includes the subject of
a: The will of God
b: How to hear God speak to you
(John 10:27 KJV)  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
c: Spiritual gifts
(Mat 7:11 KJV)  If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
d: The roles of the pastors, elders, deacons, women  and the Church
(1 Cor 12:28 KJV)  And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
e:Tithing and helping poor people
(Mat 7:12 KJV)  Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
f: The Qualifications of Christian leadership
(Mark 8:34 KJV)  And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
(Mat 5:9 KJV)  Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
(Mat 5:19 KJV)  Whosoever 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.
Mat 7:13  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.15  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16  Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?17  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.19  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.  20  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26  And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:  27  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
(Mark 3:35 KJV)  For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
(Gal 1:4 KJV)  Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
(1 Th 4:3 KJV)  For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
(1 Th 5:18 KJV)  In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
(Heb 10:36 KJV)  For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
(1 Pet 2:15 KJV)  For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
(1 Pet 3:17 KJV)  For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
(1 Pet 4:2 KJV)  That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
(1 Pet 4:19 KJV)  Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
(1 John 2:17 KJV)  And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
