The Death of Faith

“Let God be true and every man a liar…”

Recently, I have seen books and read articles by seminary trained men who have educated themselves out of belief in the Gospel. Men who, having entered seminary as true believers came to the point, based on the things they had studied, where they no longer believed. There is a difference between seeking an education and seeking truth, between seeking knowledge and seeking wisdom. Those who seek knowledge for its own sake, or worse yet, to gain degrees, acclaim and the acceptance of their peers, will often find themselves educated to the point of disbelief. There is no chance that one seeking truth and wisdom should ever come to such an end.

There is one central truth and that is that God is Truth. Both Jesus and the written Word are truth and the Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth. If the facts that one learns seem to contradict that truth, they are either lies misrepresented as truth or partial truths twisted by the enemy of your soul and made to appear as if they oppose the Truth of God. There are no facts that oppose the Truth of God, only misinterpretations of either the “facts” or the Word of God.

For the sake of this article, let me site two examples that have led to the loss of faith in some. First, we will discuss the massive evidence that there was a pre-adamic civilization  and secondly that there are stories of the virgin birth that predate both Judaism and Christianity. These ideas have led men and women to renounce the Gospel. Perhaps these things have bothered you or caused you to question God and the Bible.

There are large volumes that have been written which address both of these quandaries. If it interests you, let me suggest that you study further. For the sake of this short article, allow me to answer the objections in the shortest manner possible.

Some, who insist on a literal six-day creation, have suggested that all of the evidence that would seem to support a Pre-Adamic civilization may be understood in the light of the flood of Noah. They suggest that stratified layers are not the result of millions of years of build up but that they were formed during the runoff from the flood as larger and heavier objects sank deeper into the mud.  This is possible and satisfies some but certainly not all students of these things. There seem to be, in fact, a good number of exceptions which cannot be properly explained by a global inundation.

So, what if science should prove that a pre-adamic civilization did exist? What does that do to your faith? The answers to those questions, respectively, should be, “So what?” and “Nothing.”

 Genesis starts with these words, “ In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth WAS without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” (Emphasis mine.)

The little word “WAS” in that passage is troublesome because it has caused a lot of confusion, has carried over into most translations and it is wrong…

The word translated “was” here is הָיָה (hayah). Hayah is a verb. It appears 76 times in the King James Version. It is translated, [to be, become, come to pass, exist, happen, fall out]. It is translated as “WAS” exactly once, in Genesis 1:2. It is an obvious mistranslation, but it is so popular that no other translations have dared to correct the error. It is never, with this single exception, translated “WAS.”

The verse, by all rights, should read, “And the earth BECAME without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

If you understand that one simple fact, no argument concerning the existence of a pre-adamic race could ever shake your faith…

Next, there have been stories of the virgin birth of gods and god men since the beginning and they predate the story of Jesus by thousands of years.

This fact has led some to believe that the early Christians simply mixed old pagan stories with the Hebrew Scriptures and came up with a new version of an old story… This has caused some to lose their faith.

Yet there remains a much better way to resolve the conflict. One must first concede that the Bible does not give us every detail of every story. We do not have full architectural plans for the Ark, and we do not have a list of names of all those who died in the flood. We just are not told everything and, practically speaking, we would not want to know every little detail.

What we do know is that God had a talk with Satan after the fall and told him of his future and the curse that now hung over his head. Scripture gives us a hint as to the content of that conversation, but it is certain that not every detail and every word is recorded.

In Genesis three, we read these words.

14 So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,

“Cursed are you above all livestock
    and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
    and you will eat dust
    all the days of your life.
15 And I will put enmity
    between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
he will crush your head,
    and you will strike his heel.”

We also know, from the book of Job and others, that Satan continued to have access to Heaven and conversations with God. What was contained in those discussions we cannot even guess, but God’s future plans were certainly mentioned. Satan knew part but not all. That he knew that a virgin would conceive and give birth to the Son of God is certain because it shows up repeatedly in the old stories of the gods…

First, Satan told men that in her sin, Eve had recreated herself as a “Free Woman.” As such, they should consider Eve to be Virgin Born… She, according to the Devil, created herself. Then, the pagan gods were virgin born and the pagan goddesses were all “Virgin Born” and “Virgin Mothers.” But the stories are crude and ugly… nothing at all like the story of Mary and Jesus… The Bible story just sounds like something that God would do. The pagan stories all sound like the Devil wrote them, and he did.

Look at Isis. Isis fell in love with her brother, Osiris, and married him. Before they could have sex, their jealous brother Set, killed Osiris and cut him into fourteen pieces and threw him into the Nile. Isis searched and found everything but his private parts which had been eaten by a fish. She sewed him back together, manufactured the world’s first dildo, sat on it and impregnated herself, making her the virgin mother of the god Horus. Horus was her son. He was also Osiris reincarnated. Isis married him when he was twelve years old. Horus was then god, the son of god and the husband, brother, and son of Isis…

I guess that was the best story Satan could think up. It made him, instead of Yahweh, the father of a virgin born god… Satan always wants to mimic God…

Compare that crude and ugly story with the story of Mary and Jesus in the Bible. Even though the story of Isis and Horus came first, it is obvious, to the Christian, that one story is demonic and the other heavenly. Which one came first is insignificant.

The same is true with every conflict. We must make the extrabiblical material fit the Bible and not the other way around. Most conflicts can be easily resolved. If there remain any conflicts that cannot be resolved, we must have the faith to believe that the conflict is based, not in fact, but in our own ignorance… We must always start out with the assumption that God and his Word are correct.

On a False Gospel Meme

A FALSE GOSPEL MEME

Yesterday, I put up a meme on Facebook that proclaimed a false gospel. Under the meme I asked how many people had heard that message in their churches. I was looking to find out how wide this apostasy has spread. Boy did I get the message…

The comments under the meme started coming, “Amen, Brother, preach it!” and “Amen, I believe it!”

That was not the response I expected under a meme proclaiming a false and apostate message.

The meme read…

If you pay your tithe,
raise your hands,
sing loudly
and tithe,
God will make you wealthy and
take you to Heaven when you die.

I have news for you…

You can go to church every week until you die.
You can raise your hands,
Sing more loudly than anyone else
Pay a double tithe,
And go to Hell when you die…

If you want to go to Heaven…

You must believe in Jesus,
Not just any Jesus,
Not the Jesus your preacher dreamed up in his head,
Not the Jesus of your imagination,
The Jesus of the Bible.
You must know that Jesus personally,
You must deny yourself,
Take up your cross
(Don’t worry, it will kill you dead)
Fix your eyes on Jesus
And follow him.
You must agree with God
That what He calls sin
Is sin
And what He calls an Abomination,
Is an Abomination.
You must confess your sins
And ask for forgiveness.
You must be washed in the Blood of the Lamb
And made clean.
You must trust in Him
And in Him alone
For your Righteousness.
You must walk away from your
Sinful lifestyle.
And walk in holiness.

That is the way to Heaven as presented in Scripture… If you know Him, you will do these things. If you do not do these things, it is a sure and certain sign that you do not know Jesus.

That is truth!

When I was growing up, we had an altar call for Salvation, Repentance and Rededication… in every service.
1. Sunday Morning
2. Sunday Night
3. Wednesday Night.

It did not matter what the topic of the Pastor’s sermon, it always ended with a call to repentance, righteousness and salvation… Sinners felt the conviction of the Spirit… You could watch them squirm…

You know what is sad, It has been more than ten years since I have seen an altar call for repentance, righteousness and salvation…

More than that, I have gone to church with unconfessed sin in my life and walked out, an hour and a half later, with the same unconfessed sin and never felt the slightest twinge of conviction… God always dealt with me later, but nothing I heard in church would have ever brought conviction to my sinful soul…

Folks, if preachers refuse to call people to repentance, if they refuse to even tell people what the Bible says about Salvation, Heaven and Hell, if they continue to refuse to preach against sin, not only is this nation damned, pretty near every single person in this nation will be damned.

That is the truth…

Think about it.

THE CULT THAT PLAYED CHURCH

“And, that is how Isis became the Virgin Mother of God. Being the Chief Goddess and the Wife of the Chief God, she became the Queen of Heaven when her life on earth was done… Horus was both god and the son of god…”

Satan had the run of Heaven for a very long time. You can read about it in the Book of Job. He was out of the loop, so to speak, but he heard things. God even shared things with him that he could no longer fully understand. He knew that he had fallen, and he knew that he had taken down mankind. God told him the basics… “The Seed of the woman will bruise your head…” He certainly had heard of the Virgin Birth and the incarnation of the Son of God. He did not know how it would all work out, but he knew the basic facts…

Satan, or Lucifer as he still prefers to be called, set out to do it first. He would do what God had said that He would do, but Lucifer would do it first… He just wasn’t quite as smart as he would like to think, and the story he came up with is so perverted that I shall be forced to leave out some of the grosser detail.

The Catholics have called Mary the “Queen of Heaven” but the pagans worshipped the “Queen of Heaven” in Jeremiah’s day. You can read about it in your Bible if you like. That “Queen of Heaven” and that “Mother of God” is the center piece of our little history paper that you now read.

It is, as I have already pointed out, a perverted story. It is a story of a weird little family of gods… Yes, these gods existed but the stories that surround them have been greatly exaggerated. Osiris, Set, (not Seth) and Isis were brother and sister gods… Nice family, two boys and a girl.

Osiris and Isis fell in love and got married. Yes, they were both brother and sister and husband and wife. Before they could have sex and make a little baby god, the evil brother Set, got jealous and killed Osiris. He cut his brother/Brother-in-Law into fourteen pieces and spread his parts all over Egypt.

Isis was distraught… she was still a virgin and had no heir. Desperate, she set out across Egypt and gathered up all the parts of her brother/husband… all except one. It appears that his penis was thrown in the Nile and it was eaten by a fish.

Isis sewed all of his parts together. He was still dead but at least he looked like himself. Nonetheless, he had no penis and could not make a baby for her. Not to be undone, Isis made a magic stone dildo, attached it as if it were his penis and impregnated herself…

She soon gave birth to a baby boy whom she named Horus. Horus was, according to Isis, the reincarnation of her brother/husband Osiris. Thus, he was her son, her brother and her husband. When he was just twelve years old, Isis married him and took him to her bed.

And, that is how Isis became the Virgin Mother of God. Being the Chief Goddess and the Wife of the Chief God, she became the Queen of Heaven when her life on earth was done… Horus was both god and the son of god… All the pieces of the story he overheard in Heaven were accomplished, albeit in a perverted and twisted manner.

That story, slightly changed, came from the story of Nimrod and his wife. The Egyptians had the names changed but kept the basic story. The Greeks gave them good Greek names, but the story remained the same. The Romans gave them Roman names, but the story was unchanged. This was the base religion of the Caesars.

Then came Jesus and we found out what was the real, untwisted and un-perverted plan of the Real God of Heaven. The Church was born and existed with the Real Story. Jesus, Son of God and Son of Man. This story was the foundation of the Church, but it had a familiar ring to it… it was not that different from the Religion of Rome.

Rome fought the Church for a couple of hundred years, but it became a losing battle. Roman soldiers would no longer attack the Church, they were Christians… Rome and Lucifer were losing bigtime. So, Lucifer gave the Emperor Constantine a dream. In the dream, our boy saw a cross and heard a voice saying, “In this sign conquer.” The Emperor woke up a Christian and set out to win the world under the sign of the cross.

Then came the Edict. All Romans would become Christians in thirty days or die… That was simple, but effective.

On that day, the Cult of Rome became the Roman Catholic Church. Osiris became “God the Father,” Horus became “Jesus the Son,” Isis became “Mary, Mother of God, and Queen of Heaven.” And the Bishop of Rome became The Holy Spirit… God on Earth, and the Mediator between God and Man…”

And, the greatest of these is Isis/Diana/Mary, Queen of Heaven and Mother of God.

It was this “Church” that gave birth to a bastard son called Mohammad, and Osiris was baptized as Allah…

Now, Allah/Father/Osiris/Horus/Jesus has become the Jesus of the cult of Dominion… and by violence they seek to take the world and submit it by force to the will of their God.

Nothing ever changes…

There are two stories. One story told by Lucifer, the other told by the God of Abraham and found in your Bible… Just make certain which story you believe.

Apostle or Roman Agent?

Joseph Shellim commented on my post, “Paul’s quote is pointless, clearly indicating he was a Roman agent…”

Joseph Shellim commented on my post, “Paul’s quote is pointless, clearly indicating he was a Roman agent. Everything is created by God [Gen.1/1]. Paul’s attempt to fulfill away the laws of God marks the single greaest failure in biblical history. The Romans and Christianity also failed this attempt, to the extent not a single Christian country can stand without the Hebrew laws. Even God cannot change His covenant and laws, because God is Truth.

Ps 105/8 He hath remembered His covenant forever, the word which He commanded to a thousand generations; 10 And He established it unto Jacob for a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant.”

To which I replied, “And you sir, are a Hell bound pagan, having rejected the Word of God.”

His is however, the logical end to the beliefs of the legalist and Judaizer… You cannot believe that Paul was an Apostle and at the same time insist on placing gentile Christians under the Law… Every Hebrew Roots believer, Legalist and Judaizer will eventually be forced to either trash their doctrine or make Paul a reprobate… There is no other honest choice…

I once had a Hebrew Roots “Pastor” send me a 4,000-word essay on why Paul was not an Apostle and it was only by a Roman Catholic plot that his books were included in the Bible… Seriously, that is the only… the very only answer that one can come up with that can possibly justify the attempt to place Christians under the law of Moses…

You cannot believe that Paul was an Apostle and his writings are the Word of God and believe that Christians are forbidden to eat pork and shellfish and that they are required to go to church on Saturday… That is an oxymoron on steroids…

But none, absolutely none of the Judaizers will accept that they are bound by the whole law. They are bound only to dietary laws and the Sabbath… The rest of the Law can and should be ignored… You cannot preach that with Paul’s Epistles in your Bible…

I wrote, “While you are enforcing Leviticus 11, why not enforce Leviticus 15? Who gave you permission to enforce one chapter and ignore the rest of the book? When you come into full compliance with all of Leviticus, I might even listen to that garbage you selectively pick out of a single chapter… You are going to insist that rules regarding food are still in force but rules concerning blood are trashed? Good luck explaining that one to God!

Leviticus 15:19 ‘When a woman has a discharge, if her discharge in her body is blood, she shall continue in her menstrual impurity for seven days; and whoever touches her shall be unclean until evening. 20 Everything also on which she lies during her menstrual impurity shall be unclean, and everything on which she sits shall be unclean. 21 Anyone who touches her bed shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening. 22 Whoever touches any thing on which she sits shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening. 23 Whether it be on the bed or on the thing on which she is sitting, when he touches it, he shall be unclean until evening. 24 If a man actually lies with her so that her menstrual impurity is on him, he shall be unclean seven days, and every bed on which he lies shall be unclean.

25 ‘Now if a woman has a discharge of her blood many days, not at the period of her menstrual impurity, or if she has a discharge beyond that period, all the days of her impure discharge she shall continue as though in her menstrual impurity; she is unclean. 26 Any bed on which she lies all the days of her discharge shall be to her like her bed at menstruation; and every thing on which she sits shall be unclean, like her uncleanness at that time. 27 Likewise, whoever touches them shall be unclean and shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening. 28 When she becomes clean from her discharge, she shall count off for herself seven days; and afterward she will be clean. 29 Then on the eighth day she shall take for herself two turtledoves or two young pigeons and bring them in to the priest, to the doorway of the tent of meeting. 30 The priest shall offer the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering. So the priest shall make atonement on her behalf before the Lord because of her impure discharge.’

31 “Thus you shall keep the sons of Israel separated from their uncleanness, so that they will not die in their uncleanness by their defiling My tabernacle that is among them.”

So throw out 80% of your New Testament and declare Paul a reprobate or throw out your Demon Doctrine that forces that decision down your throat…
