The purpose of this section is to expose FALSE teachings in the main stream Christian churches, and also to identify what are MARKS or characteristics of the different cults that have an appearance as being Christian, but in TRUTH even those these cults and other false teaching APPEAR to be based on the Bible they are NOT SOUND BIBLICAL in their teachings. This section is also here to reach out to Muslims with the gospel of Jesus Christ and also to WARN Christians NOT to be DECEIVED by the teachings of ISLAM! BEWARE of the rising trend to MERGE Christianity with Islam called CHRISLAM. Other major religions will be exposed in some of these studies also as being FALSE religions that contradict the teachings in the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible.
Here is a list of FALSE teachings in many of the mainstream churches:
"THE FALSE DOCTRINE OF ORIGINAL SIN"
"O.S.A.S. or ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED also called ETERNAL SECURITY"
"The CEASING of the GIFTS of the HOLY SPIRIT"
"The FALSE PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE of the CHURCH"
"THE ONENESS DOCTRINE or MODALISM"
"THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY"
"SUNDAY WORSHIP BEING THE MARK of the BEAST"
"EXAMINING CALVINISM in the LIGHT of GOD'S WORD"
"IS THE DOCTRINE OF HELL BIBLICAL?"
"DOES REVELATION 20:10 TEACH ETERNAL TORMENT?"
"IS THE SOUL OF MAN IMMORTAL?"
"IS UNIVERSALISM A SOUND BIBLICAL TEACHING?"
"IS THE HEBREW ROOTS MOVEMENT BIBLICAL?"
Here are some of the "cults" or more precisely here are some other FALSE TEACHINGS that on the surface appear to be Christian, but in TRUTH these teachings are NOT SOUND BIBLICAL teachings. I do not like to use the word "cults" to label FALSE teachings, because there is a fine line in my opinion of being a sincere true follower of Jesus Christ and yet still being deceived in some other areas of Christian faith that will most likely not cause you to lose your reward of ETERNAL LIFE in the world to come.
However, there are some groups and organizations that while they may APPEAR very Christian on the surface, when their doctrines are examined in the light of the WHOLE word of Almighty God, then it is made clear that they are NOT being SAVE by GRACE through FAITH, but rather they are attempting to save themselves BY their OWN WORKS of righteousness. They may not even realize that this is what they are doing in their faith, but in TRUTH their religion teaches them salvation BY their OWN WORKS of righteousness.
Please understand that I am not the judge of any man or woman, but rather I only judge "DOCTRINE" in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. And these following churches, which are referred to by some in the main stream church as being "cults" teach that if you are NOT a member of THEIR church, then you are NOT SAVED.
The Mormons teach that you MUST be a Mormon and obey what the church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints teaches in order to be saved. The Jehovah's Witnesses teach that you MUST be a part of THEIR organization and follow the teaches of the Watch Tower Society in order to be saved. Even the Catholic church teaches that you MUST be a CATHOLIC and believe what the Catholic Church teaches in order to be saved. These teachings that you MUST be a part of THEIR Church and believe all that they themselves teach are simply FALSE teachings in the light of God's word and hold people in bondage to the traditions and doctrines of men. And I also realize that even some denominations of the many different branches of Christianity also FALSE teach that you MUST be a part of THEIR particular denomination in order to be taught the full gospel and some will go as far as to say being saved, but I personally have not found anything in their doctrine that is deceiving them that they are saved, when in truth they are not. Yes, some of these mainstream church do have FALSE teaching, but in regards to actually deceiving people that they are SAVED, when they are NOT I do not find such error in their teaching.
We as Christians are to believe and follow the teachings of Jesus as recorded for us in the New Testament of the Holy Bible. We are NOT to ADD to the Bible, nor are we to take away from the word of Almighty God. And Mormonism, the Jehovah's Witnesses, Roman Catholicism, and Islam all ADD to the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible. You see my dear brothers and sister in our Lord Jesus Christ and all you who are seeking the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God, the Mormons or more precisely the religion of Mormonism ADDS to the Holy Bible three books that they esteem to be equal to if not great than the Holy Bible itself. Mormonism ADDS the Book of Mormons, the book of Doctrines and Covenants, and the book the Pearl of Great Price. And even on the cover of the Book of Mormons in the title it says, ANOTHER testament of Jesus Christ.
The Jehovah's Witnesses ADD the teachings of the Watch Tower Society, which are not all SOUND BIBLICAL teachings. The reason that I say that they ADD these teachings is because they believe and teach that ONLY these ELDERS of the Watch Tower Society have the ability to INTERPRET the Bible FOR the people. In other words, they DENY the CLEAR, PLAIN and SIMPLE teaching of God's word that very plainly teaches EVERY true believer in Jesus Christ that every believer has the anointing of the Holy Spirit WITHIN them and that the Holy Spirit of Almighty God will lead and guide the into ALL TRUTH. Please read 1 John 2:26,27.
"These things have I written unto you concerning them that SEDUCE (or DECEIVE) you.
27. But the anointing, (speaking of the IN DWELLING of the Holy Spirit of Almighty God himself DWELLING IN every believer and not to be confused with the BAPTISM or being FILLED with the Holy Spirit) which you have received of him abides IN you (or lives and dwell in you), and you NEED NOT that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of ALL things, and is TRUTH, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in him."
So then, when ANY church of religious organization dogmatically teachings that you must believe THEIR INTERPRETATIONS of the Bible and the you yourself are NOT capable of correctly interpreting the Bible without THEIR teachings, then i myself would personally walk away from that church or religious organization and seek the TRUTH of God's word by calling on Almighty God himself in the name of his Son Jesus. And the Catholic Church ADDS church TRADITION as being equal to the Holy Bible and other FALSE teachings that directly contradict the WHOLE word of Almighty God.
Again I personally do not like the word "cult", because a lose definition of this word literally places EVERY ONE who teaches ANY thing that CONTRADICTS the WHOLE word of God as being a "cult", and consequently this would include most every church that is named. My point is this, I prefer to point out to YOU, the reader and seeker of the truth, those teachings that do NOT AGREE with the WHOLE word of Almighty God. Now whether or not those individuals belonging to these different churches that to not follow the teachings of the mainstream church as to whether or not they are actually saved is not my intent. Again I want only to point out FALSE TEACHING as judged in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. In other words, I am NOT saying that ALL Catholics, ALL Mormons, and ALL Jehovah;s Witnesses are LOST. I am not their judge nor am I your judge.
But what I am saying is that these three religious organizations ALL make the claim that they are CHRISTIAN and that each one makes the claim that if you are not part of THEIR church, then you will NOT obtain ETERNAL LIFE in the world to come. Plain and simple these CLAIMS are simply NOT the TRUTH. The TRUTH of the matter is that NO church denomination can SAVE you. NO religion can SAVE you. NO Christian organization can SAVE you. It is ONLY the word of TRUTH that can save you by your FAITH in the word of Almighty God himself, which was given to us by his SON Jesus some 2000 years ago. We have no NEED for any FURTHER apparitions, visions and revelations that ADD to what we ALREADY have been given by JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF to HIS church. And even more so any revelation, vision, apparition, or visitation of an angel that CONTRADICTS the WHOLE word of Almighty God is to be REJECTED and EXPOSED as being FALSE teaching. And this INCLUDES Mormonism, Jehovah;s Witnesses, Catholicism and Islam, because ALL of these religious organizations have ADDED to the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible by saying that the Bible and Christianity has been CORRUPTED and therefore they CLAIM that God has sent them a vision, or an angel or a prophet to straighten out the church.
BE NOT DECEIVED !
EVERY ONE of the TEACHINGS of these groups
CONTRADICT the WHOLE word of ALMIGHTY GOD!
