The purpose of this section is to expose FALSE teachings in the mainstream Christian churches and also to identify the MARKS or characteristics of the different cults that have an appearance of being Christian. These studies will help you identify these cults and other false teachings that APPEAR to be based on the Bible but in truth, they are NOT SOUND BIBLICAL in their teachings. 

                For you see, when there are two or more teachings on the same subject but those teachings contradict or directly oppose each other then they both can NOT be the truth. There can only be ONE teaching on any one Bible subject that can be the correct teaching. Or at least there can only be one teaching that is the SOUNDEST BIBLICAL teaching over any other teaching on that same subject. But every church denomination SINCERELY believes that they alone have the correct teaching. But what IF they are WRONG? Please read the heading >>>WHAT IF YOU ARE WRONG?<<< for a list of other headings where I have all the studies on that particular subject listed together. For example, some Christians sincerely believe that EVERYONE will eventually be saved. But what IF they are WRONG? Find out for SURE by reading all the studies in the heading >>>WILL EVERYONE BE SAVED?<<<. And I give examples like this for all the main Christian church doctrines, from different church denominations, who all sincerely believe that they are RIGHT and everyone else is WRONG. But what if those who sincerely believe that they are right are actually WRONG?

                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. And I also have some studies on why other religions are false religions and why all roads do not lead to heaven. You can find the different headings or categories at the top of my home page and in the heading >>>WHAT IF YOU ARE WRONG?<<<.


Concerning false teaching in the Christian churches, I have heard Christians say things like, what does it matter? If it is not a salvation issue then why does it matter? Some Christians say those kinds of things because they are the ones who believe and teach false doctrine. Other Christians simply do not care what others believe because they do not want to get involved. While yet other Christians take the stand that they are right and every other church denomination is wrong so they say things like, “Let us agree to disagree.”

My point is that while some church doctrine may not be a salvation issue straight upfront, as a denying of the true gospel of Jesus Christ, those false teachings could eventually lead Christians away from God.

For example, many of us know people who have suffered a tragedy in their life and they BLAME God for that tragedy which then causes them to lose their faith in God. And eventually, they grow cold and over a period of time, they are no longer serving God. And before you know it, they are back to living in their old lifestyle of sin. Now, obviously, some of those “backsliding” Christians do indeed come back to the Lord. But sadly, some do not come back to God and they die while living in a lifestyle of sin. And for me, I would have to say that any Christian living in a lifestyle of sin, when they die, will lose their salvation.

Now when Calvinist Christians hear anyone say that a Christian can lose their salvation they get really upset because they have been wrongly taught that no truly born-again Christian can ever lose their salvation no matter what. They claim that every truly born-again Christian is eternally saved the very moment that they are first saved.

Those Christians who have been deceived by Calvinism and Reformed Theology have been wrongly taught that Almighty God himself is the author of all EVIL. Now, they may not put it in those words but they do teach that everything that happens was DECREED by God to happen. So if a tragedy would happen to them or to one of the members of their family who they dearly love, then they have NO HOPE. They cannot turn to God for HELP because they have been wrongly taught that God is the CAUSE of that tragedy. They are left ALONE to work through that tragedy all on their own without God. Some do not say that they blame God, rather they say things like why me? But deep down they must stay true to what they have been taught by religious men that God DECREED the tragedy to happen to THEM.

BLAMING God for the bad things that happen in life is not isolated to just Calvinist and Reformed Theology Christians. This false teaching that God is in control of everything that happens has caused many Christians from almost every church denomination to blame God to the point that they walk away from God. Now, as I said a moment ago, some of those Christians who have blamed God, hated God and walked away from God, do indeed come back to God. But at the same time, some of those Christians have died while HATING God and living in sin because they no longer believe in God. And it’s all because of FALSE teaching.

And that is why I am against false teaching. False teaching OPENS the door for Satan to come in later to finish off his job of deceiving people to the point that they walk away from God.

             Here is a list of FALSE teachings that are WITHIN many of the mainstream churches that may APPEAR to be Biblical until you dig deep to take a CLOSER look at the WHOLE word of Almighty God. And further down I have a list of what the mainstream churches call CULTS. The one with the arrows >>>HEADING<<< are headings with links to all the studies on that particular subject along with related studies. And the studies without the arrows are individual studies. And, obviously, this list does NOT cover all the false teachings in the many different church denominations. These are just some of the major false teachings that are the most controversial among the different church denominations.

                 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 the 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 mainstream 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 teachings 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 FALSELY 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 saved. Yes, some of these mainstream churches 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 sisters 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 greater than the Holy Bible itself. Mormonism ADDS the Book of Mormon, the book of Doctrines and Covenants, and the book the Pearl of Great Price. And even on the cover of the Book of Mormon 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 has the anointing of the Holy Spirit WITHIN them and that the Holy Spirit of Almighty God will lead and guide them 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 INDWELLING 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 or religious organization dogmatically teachings that you must believe THEIR INTERPRETATIONS of the Bible and that 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. Also, any church that ADDS to what the Bible ITSELF teaches is another warning or red flag to walk away from those church denominations. 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 loose definition of this word literally places EVERYONE who teaches ANYTHING 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 do 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.

EVERY ONE of the TEACHINGS of these groups


        Here are just some of the many false RELIGIONS:


If you already know all there is to know concerning WHAT MUST WE DO TO BE SAVED and receive eternal life in the world to come, there are still many other things yet to learn that will help keep you strong in your faith and help you to continue to grow stronger in your faith and closer to God. I have studies on the subjects HOW TO PRAY AND STUDY THE BIBLE and about DIVINE HEALING. And I have studies on the second coming of Jesus under the heading at the top of the page called PROPHECY-THE COMING OF JESUS. And I have many studies covering the many false teachings about how to not be deceived by those false teachings.

At the top of my homepage, there are subjects or categories which contain compiled lists of all the studies I have written on that particular subject. Or you can scroll down the menu list to find those studies as well but if you know the subject it may be easier to use the links at the top of the page. I will do my best to keep the lists of studies updated as I ADD NEW studies in that category.

Thanks for reading. And may God bless you richly as you continue to seek the truth of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. If you have any questions please feel free to write to me at MarkAtAMatterOfTruth@Gmail.com
