Arrogance of Christianity

2

Many within the religious system – called by men – are so arrogant and conceited, that it presumes to tell those who question, challenge and investigate what it teaches that they need help! Help with what? In understanding what “The Bible teaches.” Never, does it enter into their minds that perhaps THEY are in error and need help.

I love (and sometimes grin within myself) as I see the many who believe that Jesus is God squirm, become emotionally agitated and even angry at me because I do not accept their Trinity teaching. I present to them words spoken by God, Christ and even his Apostles that emphatically and explicitly state that Jesus is not God, but is the Son of God.

The agitation is with the truth. This is exactly how demons react to the truth. They get agitated.

Demons are the masters of deception. Deception is defined as pushing off what is a lie as the truth (with sugar on top).

The woman Eve, was told something (a lie) that so closely resembled what God told her husband (the truth) that she believe it. A lie appears clean, white and bright in this world. It tastes good to the ears. (This is how the woman ate what the serpent told her: She listened and believed. It was not a literal eating of fruit. The fruit (of lips) were the words of the Serpent. The mouth to eat those words were the ears of the woman who listened, accepted and digested what the Serpent told her).

Today, one of the biggest lies and deceptions that has been perpetrated upon the human family by the religious system called by men – Christianity – is that Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are both a part of a “Godhead” (a made up word) and are all God.

The ancient Hebrews never believed in a triune of gods. They believed in one God. We are talking from Adam all the way up through Jesus and the death of the last Apostle. They believed in one God! For 1500 years after the ascension of Christ, there was no printed Bible and thus there could have been no dispersion of it. That 1500 year time period was called “The Dark Ages.” Within this Dark Ages time period, Catholic Bishops fought and debated over how God and Christ should be believed. It was at several counsels, the most noteworthy counsel was the Nicaene Counsel of 325 AD. At this counsel a politician – not a follower of Christ – decided to end the bickering of Roman Catholic Bishops over the issue of who Jesus Christ was (and a few other issues) and he dictated and decreed that Jesus would be believed as God. That belief would be the “official” policy within the  Roman Empire. That Emperor was Constantine. Anyone not believing this, according to that decree, could not be saved. (Sounds familiar?)

Note: See article: “Is Jesus God” for more information.

This is where things got messed up and the truth about God and Christ changed. It is because of a decree by a politician in 325 AD, that many today believe that Jesus is God!

I find it funny as I know many people today who claim to be followers of Christ and who are dead set against the teachings of the Catholic Church. Many of them even view it as an antichrist! Yet, they accept a teaching created by the Roman Catholic church: The Trinity!

So those who believe that Jesus is God accept the decree of Roman Emperor Constantine and they accept what is called The Athanasian Creed, is a Christian statement of belief focused on Trinitarian doctrine and Christology. You can read more about The Athanasian Creed here.

On this website, my worst and most vicious visitors are those who claim they are followers of Christ. They really take exception at being told that they are in error. Many weighty and “bomb shell” sayings of God, Christ and the Apostles are presented to them. What do many of them do?

  1. Ignore them. (Because they have no answer).
  2. Scour the Bible to find a scripture and verse to counter what God, Christ or the Apostles had stated. (I find this one very interesting. They actually look for something to say just the opposite of what Christ taught!)
  3. Make YOU seem like YOU do not know what you are talking about.
  4. Assume YOU are new to the Bible and in need of being taught it.
  5. Become emotional rather than rational or reasoning. (This can be seen in many of their responses. For example, show them Scriptures where God, Jesus and the Apostles (and even the Devil) say that Jesus is not God, they say, “I don’t care, I believe Jesus is God! This is an emotional response, not one spawned in logic and reason. You tell them that one-plus-one-plus-one is three (which is the truth), they do not want to believe it. They would rather believe a lie that one-plus-one-plus-one is ONE. Then they throw that mystical stuff on you and say YOU just don’t understand.
  6. Resort to personal attack. (This the most common tactic they use. Rather than accept what God and Christ say, they ignore them and make YOU the topic instead. All focus is cleverly taken away from what God, Christ and the Apostles said and they make ME the target. That way, there is no need to address what I present.

There is an enemy of Christs teachings that walk this earth. They are in the billions. They are men and women claiming to be devout followers of Christ. But they will not defend him and the things he taught. Instead, they defend the doctrines of men which are lies being promoted as truth. They have been reckless in teaching God and Christ. They have taught in gross error. Their actions speak louder than what they say. Christ teaches love your enemies, Christianity teaches condemn them to a fiery hell or blow them all up!

They become agitated, condemnatory and angry at any who to not go along with them.

The Apostle Peter said of such persons at 1 Peter 4:4:

They are surprised that you do not join them in their reckless, wild living, and they heap abuse on you.

So, don’t even try it. I will never subscribe to joining you in your pretention at loving people, hateful condemnatory and intolerant of others, and the teaching others YOUR lies. I used to be like you for more than 40 years of my life until I realized who you are: The foretold imposter who would come on the basis of Jesus’ name with the truthful teaching that Jesus is the Christ (Messiah), but would use that teaching to mislead many. (Matthew 24:4-5)

    Good day sir,

    The only thing i worry about your teachings is your need to besmirch CHristians and Christianity (remember you said you do not like to do this). You and i both accept Christ to be the Savior of the world. You should mention that all other, non-christian religions, are false also. Also i recommend that you beware else you can become like a religon unto yourself if you claim to have all the answers of the Bible and can interpret it completely. Only God knows all. We need to pray for discernment but it does not say we will get all the answers now in this life. Your idea about the death and ressurection of the dead and the purpose of the 1000 yr reign are very enlightening and interesting. With that said they are not completely sound Biblically. Some of what you say may be ture but much is likely untrue. Please my brother i emplore you to remain humble. Do not become like the religions you despise. Just a friendly reminder. I am not judging just communication about or LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. I too do not like that we have these established religions. However, I do beleive in the trinity. THe Bible clearly teaches it. Yet i believe anyone who doubts the trinity but accepts Christ as their Savior by faith is STILL saved.

    To say that God cannot or is not a trinity is severly limiting our God and creator.

    Sincere heartfelt prayer to God is as important as reading His word. Church is good also though, the Bible tells us so. To disagree with that is to assume a corrupted Bible and then no one would know anymore what is truth and what isnt in the Bible.

    A believer in Christ should also believe the Bible is the innerant word of God who was more than able to protect it from corruption or we are lost and confused.

    • I stated on my home page that “Differences of viewpoint on my part will most certainly be misconstrued as besmirching, unfaithfulness, rebelliousness, disloyalty and disobedience to God by those loyal to the religious organizations they belong to.”

      Christianity and many within it are extremely sensitive when one disagrees it.

      Permit me to correct you: I never said that I have all of the answers. I do not view the Bible as The Word of God or as an authority. I view Christ himself as the ONLY AUTHORIZED Word of God. No book by any name should share in that lofty and holy position. I have no teachings.

      You assume that I do not pray. To the contrary. My reliance is strictly on what I receive by why of Holy Spirit, something Jesus said the Father would send us and that “it” would teach us ALL THINGS.  (John 14:26)

      “Biblically sound” has no meaning to me. Has I have stated, the Bible is not an authority and neither is The Word of God. The Bible may be Christianity’s textbook, it is not mine. My reliance is on God and His Son and Holy Spirit for wisdom, understanding and knowledge.

      The Bible is not a Teacher. Christ is our Teacher. Why ascribe to a book what Christ is. So one should not say, “The Bible”teaches but rather should be saying “Christ teaches.”

      The expression “Trinity” is a man made concept that sprang from the Athanasian Creed and something God nor Christ ever taught. 

      At John 1:18 Jesus said, “No man has seen God at any time.” Ask yourself, have men seen Jesus? Of course they have. 

      Did those that Jesus taught believe Jesus to be God? No! in fact, Jesus asked his Disciples that very question at Matthew 16:13, “Who do you say the Son of man is?” How did they answer? God? No! Peter answered at Matthew 16:16, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

      So his disciples knew who he was: The Son of God. The Apostle John said that all that he wrote down was for the purpose that people might believe that Jesus is the Son of God (not God). This is written at John 20:31:

      ” But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”

      A few other verses worth reading are: Exod 33:20, John 6:46, 1 Cor 8:6, 1 Cor 11:3)

      Belief in man made teachings such as the trinity is a snub to God and Christ and a belief that says that one prefers the teachings of men rather than the teachings of Christ.

      I reject Christianity-inspired-and-bullying teachings that positions itself to tell me what rules I must fall under such as “A believer in Christ should also believe the Bible is the innerant word of God …” I am NOT a disciple of the Bible, I am a disciple of Christ.

      You speak more about the Bible as “teaching” than Christ himself. This is a very common phenomenon. It should raise a red flag. Whose purpose does it serve to cleverly dupe the world to believe that a book is “The Word of God” rather than Christ? Satan! And, not only that, to listen to people speak of “The Bible” as teaching or being a teacher rather than Christ and elevating a book that appeared on the scene more than 1500 years after the ascension of Christ into a holy position.

      Sadly, “The Bible” has been made the authority rather than Christ. Not once do you state that Christ is The Word of God and as Teacher. Rather, you speak of “The Bible” as The Word of God and Teacher.

      Think very carefully about where you are: Something has you and millions speaking and believing in this manner.

      Jesus said at Matthew 23:8: “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers.​” (NIV) See Matthew 23:10

      One cannot speak of Jesus as being their savior and at the same time not accepting him has their Teacher and ONLY Word of God.

      The Bible is from below (earth) and Christ is from above heaven. Man has had his imperfect hands and mind all over the Bible. 

      I trust what came from above and no book is necessary. No book was neccessary in Jesus’ day and even after he ascended. So why is it that now “The Bible” replacing the one God sent and why is Christianity pushing it upon the masses rather than pushing the person of Christ himself.

      What is called Christianity is not of God and Christ and is an imposter. It comes in the name of Christ and it truthfully proclaims that Jesus is the Messiah, but it has deceived many. (Matthew 24:4-5)

      Deception is something different from misleading. Deception is willful. It is devilish and demonic.
