What I am about to write should not be rocket-science for any claiming to be followers of Christ. The person many know today by name and title as Jesus [the] Christ is The Word of God. Most will not deny this. In fact at Revelation 19:13 we read the following:
He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.
John 1:1 shows this same one with his Father in the beginning.
I have had many exchanges with Trinitarians and have been able to show many of them that the idea of three Gods in one God is not something Christ taught and nor was it something ever believed by Israel. Yet, there are many today – who also do not believe in the Trinity teaching – who believe something similar to the Trinity teaching. What is that?
They stand up next to The Son of God (Jesus [the] Christ), other entities and make them the same as he. In other words, they make these other entities “The Word of God.” Common sense should prompt them to think that if there is only one God, then that one God has one voice (His own); and if he sent one into the world of mankind as His spokesman or mouthpiece, he would be only one: The Word of God.
Yet, there are those who insist on making other entities “God’s Mouthpiece” or Word. Who or what?
Charles Taze Russell
The following is an excerpt from a reply I received from a gentleman who felt I was judging him because I stood fast on the belief that no man or other entity can be God’s Mouthpiece other than the one God Himself selected and chose to be that Mouthpiece: His only begotten Son, Christ Jesus. The individual stated:
Russell did indeed believe that he was a mouthpiece for God; additionally, he said that all Christians are mouthpieces for God.
Those who know me and my writings know that your judgment of me is not true. I do believe that God used Russell to bring forth many truths out of the storehouse, the Bible. I believe, as he did, that every true Christian should be a mouthpiece for God, in telling others about Jesus and his God, and what they have done for mankind.
There are several problems here: What is a “True Christian?” Did Jesus ever use this expression? Jesus never used the expression, Christian. Or, was it made up by persons within religious organizations to really say that you are a “True Christian” only if you agree with them and follow what they teach. In other words, ANYONE can define THEMSELVES as a “True Christian” regardless of what the other denominations say or think about them. It is subjective. I fully know that Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Bible Students refer to themselves as True Christians and everyone else is false. People have become clever and adept at creating celebrated names for themselves for the purpose of setting themselves apart as true and all others as false. It is a very convenient thing they all do.
The second problem is that Jesus never told anyone to be called Christians. Never do we see the Son of God referring to himself as such; never do we see him referring to his disciples as such, and never do we see his disciples referring to themselves as such. It is an expression that the European man decided those who would be disciples of Christ would call themselves. Someone other than Christ decided for the whole world and the whole world is expected to subscribe to it.
I have had many many persons of European descent (and also persons of African descent who have been Europeanized) really come down heavily on me about what I just said about the expressions Christian and Christians being something they created and pushed on the world, not Christ. They cry and call me racist and childish. What all of that stuff from them is, is a refusal to accept the truth about it and an aggressive desire for it to be accepted without question or challenge. But they call me racist. I tell you what? Google “Jesus, Adam and Eve, Angels, Noah, Moses, God, etc” and click on the images button and tell me what you see. Watch the old and new “Biblical” movies and in whose likeness is Jesus, Moses, etc are portrayed in? In art and literature, whose likeness do you see? It would be one thing if I were not speaking the truth. But I speak the truth and it is easily verified. The problem is that those who perpetrate the lies do not want to hear it and have what they have been pushing upset. They would rather allow things to lyingly continue than have these things exposed and spoken of. Their preference is for deceit and misleading rather than the truth. It is for that reason that religious organization serves a strong intoxicating spiritual drink to keep its membership spiritually drunk so that they are not sober to ask sobering questions or be of a clear mind to see what has been happening before their blurred vision. It is an odd thing in this world where the truth is not to be spoken.
There is much more than opening the eyes of those literally blind. There is an opening up of the mind so as to see clearly. Matthew 8:23-26 reads as follows:
And he took the blind man by the hand, brought him outside the village, and, having spit upon his eyes, he laid his hands upon him and began to ask him: “Do you see anything?” And the man looked up and began saying: “I see men, because I observe what seem to be trees, but they are walking about.” Then he laid his hands again upon the man’s eyes, and the man saw clearly, and he was restored, and he was seeing everything distinctly. So he sent him off home, saying: “But do not enter into the village.
The problem today is that so many … so many are being spat upon and touched by religious organizations claiming to be of Christ – instead of Christ – and those organizational teachings are not restoring the blind but making persons blinder. Once one’s eyes are opened by Christ, one should reject all religious organization and cling to the person of Christ and NOT enter into another religious organization (village).
Yet, when I write about these things, many cry out that I am racist! Are you kidding me? That is so cowardly. The bottom line is that you do not want to be questioned as to why these things are so.
The International Bible Students Association (and at one point in time, The Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society), believe founder Charles Taze Russell as God’s mouthpiece. Charles Taze Russell himself believed he was sent by God as that mouthpiece. A mouthpiece is something that speaks for God. No human can speak for God or be His Word as God has not chosen anyone ever that exclusive privilege or title but one: Jesus [the] Christ.
True, the Prophets of old spoke as God directed them to, but none of them were chosen and authorized as The Word of God.
Those Prophets of old are dead and buried. God sent the world someone out of the heavenly realm to us. That one is exclusively The Word of God. No human then or now is God’s mouthpiece. We are to be disciples of Christ. Disciples are students with a Teacher: Christ.
It is Christ who is God’s Mouthpiece, Spokesman, or Word of God and we are to listen to him. Even Jesus himself said that we are to make disciples based on what he taught us. We are not speaking for God, Christ is.
It is the European man who is arrogant. He instituted this false mentality in many and it is very difficult to humble him before God. The idea of a man coming along claiming himself as God’s mouthpiece is in fulfillment of prophecy concerning the many false prophets that would arise. Matthew 24:4-5.
Charles Taze Russell, a man of Scottish ancestry, surrounded himself with people of the same color. I have yet to find photographs of him with Black persons or even in association with them. Yet, persons want me to believe that God would send him ONLY to White people. I am sorry, I do not buy that and you can cry “childish” all you want I am not budging. God does not play favorites. Even the organizations that sprang from Russell: The International Bible Students Association and the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society are an exclusive White-man’s club at the top leadership and has remained that way since their foundings.
I simply do not care about all of the attacks against me – a Black man – speaking truthfully in this manner. Some one has to. Many of European-descent either do not think us intelligent or capable of thinking – Charles Taze Russel was such as man – or they want us to think and reason as THEY do.
To them, it is perfectly OK to portray Adam, Eve, Angels, Jesus, God, etc in the likeness of the European in art, film, literature and “Bible.” To them, it is perfectly OK to EXPECT the world to subscribe to such portrayals without questions or challenges. They are selfish and do not think that there are people of color who would otherwise become followers of Christ but do not because they see EVERYTHING portrayed in the likeness of ONE exclusive race among the human family. Yet, THEY think those who do not follow Christ (through their lead) because of these portrayals are the ones who have the problem.
Not only has men of the likes of Charles Taze Russell have been elevated to the lofty position as God’s Mouthpiece or God’s Word, so has a book! Again, who had his hand in creating this book? Persons of European descent. He has arrogated himself to give it the name he chose for this book: The Bible; he authorized it; he calls it holy; he calls it Scripture; and, he has duped the entire world into believing that it itself is ALSO the Word of God.
Another Trinity has been created by this man of lawlessness. He calls Jesus the Word of God; he calls men such as Charles Taze Russell God’s Mouthpiece (Word of God); and he calls a book that he makes himself a student of – The Bible – the Word of God.
What is really strange – but not surprising – is that the International Bible Students and the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society and intelligently articulate that there is no God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. Yet, they are absolutely blind when it comes to the “Trinity” or Duality they have established when they stand next to Jesus [the] Christ other entities bearing the title Word of God.
So, does God have modern-day spokesmen? No! To believe that He does is equivalent to saying that He did not send His Son and His Son is NOT The Word of God. It gives excuse NOT to listen to the one The Most High God said one should listen to: His Son, the one that He chose. Luke 9:35:
And a voice came out of the cloud, saying: “This is my Son, the one that has been chosen. Listen to him.
You Are Crazy and Misled
This is such a convenient expression to use towards someone when a nerve has been struck. I invite persons who are sincere followers and champions of Christ’s teachings (apart from the influence and prejudice of religious organizations) to look very closely at some of the replies and noticed a common denominator in most of them: Attack on the person rather than dealing with the subject matter. What this tells me is that these persons have become agitated. When Jesus was in the presence of demon possessed persons, the demons became agitated. Here there is a lashing out. If Christ’s teachings really took root, no disciple of his would engage in such a thing. But the religious system called by men – Christianity – teaches the uncontrolled use of the tongue. It does not like being disagreed with. It thinks itself a queen and above question and challenge.
Christianity does not want you to think for yourself, it wants you to accept what it says without question. It wants to make you an emotional drunkard which dims the mind. It wants you Kindergarten-level.
If it cannot ensnare you and you chose to speak of them as the impostor Christ foretold would come truthfully acknowledging him as the Christ, but misleading many, you will find they will be on the personal attack. This is how they are able to distract persons away from the true subject matter.
By placing a foul stench upon you and making you the subject and keeping the focus on you, the questions and challenges against them are not answered.
And, when they give an answer it is rarely what you asked them and they change the subject and it goes personal from there.
Listen to Christ and do not let anyone sway you to disobey God in listening to men as His mouthpiece instead of His Son. (Luke 9:35)
God did not choose them, they chose themselves.
Blacks, Asians, Hispanics, Arabs, etc rarely have that convenience in choosing or claiming themselves anything. White people chose to be whatever THEY chose to be. One such man – Charles Taze Russell – chose to be God’s Mouthpiece, Gods Word.
These very ones arrogate themselves to tell everyone else who they are but do not like it when you – a single guy like me – tell them who they are not. In the case of Charles Taze Russell, who he is not as well.
It is like David up against a giant.
I know all of your tactics and tricks and I intend to let others know that you ALL (Christianity) are impostors and you have no intention of bringing persons before Christ. You seek to be persons before you and the men you make your teachers and the organizations your wealth has built and continue to build. Yet, Jesus [the] Christ was poor and nothing like you.
A Disciple of Christ in the strictest sense. I belong to no religious organization. I view Christ as my only Head, Master, Teacher,
Owner, and Lord. (John 8:31-32, 1Cor 11:3) His God is my God and I champion his teachings above anything issuing out of ANY religious organization.
