Unfortunitly, somewhere Christianity got swallowed up on Religion. This became a way for the various powers to control the masses. If one does serious study on what is really written in the words of todays Bible, they will begin to see some of the cover ups used to control the masses.
A strange thing occurs to most people when it comes to the Bible and Denominations; they don't want what they have been taught to be changed; even it is means learning the truth! Jesus was crucified, for one reason, because He desired to change the false Religion of Israel. They were worshiping what their leaders told them to worship. Is there any difference today? We think not.
This also shows the price to be paid for the truth! What is death if it is here on Earth; nothing but the loss of the flesh.See Mth. 10:28.
How then does one come to learn the truth ? By MUCH deep study and prayer:It is a lonesome walk. This writer has spent 50 years seeking the truth. When it is found it is very different from the things being taught in Denominations today. Every wonder why there are so many of these Denominations ? If one looks at this word closely, and break down the words contained within the word you get, for example the following.1-Demons set on men 2-Demons eat men 3- Denominations set Demons. This method is called Lexigraming; it only works in English; there is a good reason for this which we will not enter into here.
When one is led to seek the truth they will find that they must go to many other writings than just the Bible. The Bible is a translation of copies of writings; some of which were not even done by the Disciples of Jesus! Many Scholars agree on this.
Looking closely at the English translations this can be seen by the way subjects are so chopped up. The text can be seen to be in pieces. Many of the Gnostic writings; which most preachers today will tell people to stay away from, tell much truth. These truths would present problems to Denominational teachings.
We,ourself, obtained a Bachelors Degree in Theology,thinking that one day we would use it to teach; thankfully God has changed our direction.
We can not possible cover all that needs to be here; for that would take to many pages. We instead write what we feel will cause the serious student to take notice and seek for themselves; through prayer and study.
Many teach that Jesus is God. Jesus Himself said He was not, rather that He was sent by His Father.Consider also John 20:17.
How many more verses are there that have been taught out of proper order ? Many for sure.
Another thing before we close the short writing. Many will tell you not to bother with Astrology; while the use of Astrology for the sake of telling the future is an error, Astrology in relation to learning about the Constellations mentioned in Job and other places is not wrong. These teach much indeed.
It is up to each individual to seek their own path, right or wrong. We prefer the right path; the one that takes us to the Right and not to the Left.
We pray that this may cause many to give some thought to the path they may presently be on. "You have not because you ask not" !
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
