Jesus said, let no man or his
teachings deceive you by
any means.

Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?”
John 18:38

"And you shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free.”
John 8:32

According to Webster's dictionary,
Truth is the real state of things; fact.
But to others, especially to those of
some religious persuasion, it seems
truth is as they feel or teach.

Many of today's churches refuse to
believe that the Bible is God breathed
or God's inspired word for today's
generation.

'And many False Prophets shall rise,
and deceive many.'
Matthew 24:11

Some ministers seem to have the wrong
motivation in today's churches, there
are people that approach the ministry as
a vocation to make a comfortable living.
Some have used the ministry as a spring
board to get into politics, a means of
getting ahead.
Instead of teaching the Truth of
God's Word.

Many people want to be part of the
fastest growing church, like the big
mega churches, where they want to
hear the "feel good" sermons,
and everybody tries to please the
pastor, instead of attending a church
where the Holy Spirit is present and
the Truth of God's Word is taught.

'For the time will come when they will
not endure sound doctrine, but according
to their own desires, because they have
itching ears, they will heap up for
themselves teachers; 
and they will turn
their ears away from the truth, and
be turned aside to fables.'
2 Timothy 4:3-4



Some churches are even
teaching something called..
Contemplative Prayer.

They tell you to get quiet,
and then you can contact the
god of your understanding.
They tell you to just clear your
mind of all thoughts.

They'll also teach you a breathing
technique similar to Yoga.

Only with a blank mind they can
begin to indoctrinate you to their
religious ideas of “being in the now.”

The Bible says to bring every
thought captive and make it
obedient to Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:5

If someone comes along
and says to you,
"I have a technique by which
you can greatly enrich your
prayer life, it is called
Contemplative Prayer;
you do not have to change a
thing about the way that you
live, I can show you the way."
Do not believe them.
Only Jesus can show you
the way.

The contemplative prayer religion
is also false because it claims
that there can be direct contact
with God without a mediator,
which is a lie.

The only way we are accepted by
God the Father is through our
Lord Jesus who shed his blood
and died for our sins and rose
for our justification.
He is the mediator between
us and God.

'For there is one God and one
Mediator between God and men,
the Man Christ Jesus,'
1 Timothy 2:5



Regardless of what some people might
say
, we are to give the Word of God
preeminence over anything or anyone
no matter how
spiritual their doctrine
might sound.

Jesus did not say to "follow Christians",
He said, "Follow Me".
Focus on God's Word and ignore
everything else, no matter how
reasonable or logical it may sound.

Beware of those Christians whose faith is
based on their own ideas and feelings, and
what they think is right, and not on God's
Word.




In many churches, they teach that you
must donate money in order to be saved
( salvation ), or for God to work in
your life.

Some will say; " For only a
such and such amount, God will perform
the miracle that you have been asking
for" or if you are in need of this or
that, they'll say; " Just give this amount,
and then you will receive what you need."
They will say it in a deceptive way so
you think that you are doing the right
thing, and doing God's work.

And they will even try to make you
feel guilty if you don't.
They make you feel bad if you
happen to be going through a
financial hardship, or on a fixed
income, they make you feel like
they're saying; "Oh well, you're stuck
without a paddle, unless you give
a certain amount."

And when you look and see, you will
notice that they are dressed with
very fine clothing and jewelry, drive
luxury vehicles, and live in nice
estates.

Jesus said:
"Ask, and it shall be given you;"
Matthew 7:7
He did not say, "Ask, and for a certain
$ amount, it shall be given you."


'Jesus Christ is the same yesterday,
today, and forever.'

Hebrews 13:8

 

Yes, we are to give to the poor, but
not through deceptive teaching.

'He who has pity on the poor lends
to the Lord, And He will pay back
what he has given.'
Proverbs 19:17

'But when you do a charitable
deed, do not let your left hand
know what your right hand
is doing,'

Matthew 6:3

If you are facing financial hardships or
on a fixed income, remember, it
means more to Jesus for the little
that you can give, than for someone
with wealth to give.

'Now Jesus sat opposite the treasury
and saw how the people put money
into the treasury.
And many who were rich put in much.
Then one poor widow came and
threw in two mites, which make a
quadrans.
So He called His disciples to Himself
and said to them,“Assuredly, I say to
you that this poor widow has put in
more than all those who have given
to the treasury 
her whole livelihood.”
Mark 12:41-44



In some other churches, the
pastor voice is loud and even
angry sounding.
Which is not necessary because of
microphones and speakers.

It was different when John the
Baptist spoke, he had to raise his voice
so that the multitude of people could
hear God's Word.


But angry sounding? That tells you
where their heart is.




The hardest people to deal with in
Jesus' time and in our times
are the "religious" people.

Satan and his demons do not
want you to serve God.
They want to turn everyone away
from God through religion.
Religion is like counterfeit money​,
it may look like the real thing,
but it is worthless.

Some religions will even quote
Scripture from the Bible to lure
people in, and deceive you with
their teachings.
They will interpret scripture to
fit in with their agenda.
They will change the
meaning of the passage so that
you question and even doubt
of what God says to be true.


All religion is a sham, false, man-made,
and devil
inspired to keep people at
arm's length from God.

Jesus came to bring Salvation.
No religion will ever give you that.



Jesus warned:

“Beware of false prophets, who come

to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly
they are ravenous wolves.
You will know them by their fruits

Do men gather grapes from
thornbushes
or figs from thistles?
Even so,
every good tree bears good

fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
A good tree cannot bear bad fruit,
nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
Every tree that does not bear good fruit

is cut down and thrown into the fire.

Therefore by their fruits you will

know them.

“Not everyone who says to Me,

‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom

of heaven, but he who does the

will of My Father in heaven.
Matthew 7:21-23

Many will say to Me in that day,

‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied
in Your name, cast out demons in
Your name, and done many wonders
in Your name?’ depart from Me,
you who practice lawlessness!’
Matthew 7:15-23

False teachers come in disguise.
They do not appear to be false
teachers, they don't necessarily
deny Jesus, they even call Him "Lord."
They appear to be godly, sincere, and
good moral people.
But they teach enough error to
cause people to be deceived
and lost.

The scripture says 'false prophet,'
instead of 'false teacher,'
but it shows that false teaching
is dangerous.
Jesus warned us to watch for it.


Even more so in these last days:

'Now the Spirit expressly says that
in latter times some will depart from
the faith, giving heed to deceiving
spirits and doctrines of demons,
speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their
own conscience seared with a hot iron,
forbidding to marry, and commanding
to abstain from foods which God created
to be received with thanksgiving by
those who believe and know the
truth.

1 Timothy 4:1-3




Here another example of a
religion with false teachings:


The Watchtower Society and Jehovah's
Witnesses have been around for
over 100 years.

Jehovah's Witnesses distort the
Bible's true meaning.
Jehovah's Witnesses practice
"proof-texting," plucking out
and isolating individual Bible
verses from their context.
Then they use them to prove some
point which may have nothing
whatsoever to do with the verse's
original meaning.


They have many publications
with interesting titles such as:
"Where are the Dead",
"Millions now living shall
never die", etc.
They have slick, attractive
pictures and topics.
But many people do not stop to
consider if these things are true
and in accordance with the Bible,
because they claim that they are
the "true religion" to deceive you.
They pass them out everywhere
they go.

They teach that you must follow
the counsel of the organization and
not openly question anything
they say.
In other words, it's their way
or no way.

Jehovah's Witnesses teach lying
and hatred.

Lying is part of "theocratic war
strategy."
A JW can lie to someone if they
are not entitled to know the truth.

People who have left the
group are known as apostates.
JWs are taught that they must hate
God's enemies, ( meaning apostate
JWs ).

'Whoever hates his brother is a
murderer, and you know that no
murderer has eternal life
abiding in him.'
1 John 3:15

Periodically, the JW doctrine will
change, this is known as "new light."

“For I am the Lord, I do not change;"
Malachi 3:6

'Jesus Christ is the same yesterday,
today, and forever.'
Hebrews 13:8

Jehovah’s Witnesses ( JWs ) is a
religion that claims to be the
"True Religion" and that everything
else is "False".

They teach that Hell is just a grave,
and not a real place.

JWs teach that death is annihilation,
and there is no conscious existence
when you are dead.

They also teach that the "soul" is the entire
living person, and that it is not an
immaterial part of you that continues
on after death of the body.


Your soul ( the real you ),
( You are not your body, the
body is a shell for your soul )

will go either to eternal punishment
in hell or eternal life in heaven.


'For the wages of sin is death,
but the gift of God is eternal
life in Christ Jesus our Lord.'
Romans 6:23

Hell is a place of eternal separation
from God.
It is where God, Who is
Holy and Just, will cast anyone
who is “not written in the
book of life”.
Revelation 20:15

God sent his only beloved Son,
Jesus as a sacrifice to pay the penalty
for our sin by death on the cross,
so that we would not have to,
so that we may be able to live in
eternal life with God.
John 3:16

Jehovah’s Witnesses also don't believe
in predestination or eternal security.
They believe in different forms of
resurrection for two groups of
Christians.

They teach that you do not need
to be born again, and you are
not anointed with the holy spirit.

They teach that you must work to
be part of "God's system of
things".

'For by grace you have been
saved through faith, and that
not of yourselves;
it is the gift of God,
not of works,
lest anyone should boast.'
Ephesians 2:8-9

JWs believe that you should not
pray to or worship Jesus.

They believe that Jesus is not God,
that He is not a person of the Trinity,
and that He is not equal to God.
But that He is "a god."

Jehovah's Witnesses blasphemously
teach that Jesus did not rise from
the dead.

And His body was dissolved
into gases in the tomb.
They also teach that Jesus
generated bodies to appear to the
disciples after his resurrection.
These bodies even included
nail holes.

What blasphemy!


Jesus is God in the flesh.
"I and My Father are one."
John 10:30

In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
John 1:1-3

And the Word became flesh and dwelt
among us, and we beheld His glory,
the glory as of the only begotten
of the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14

Being a Christian is not any Religion,
it's a Personal Relationship with
God thought Jesus Christ.

There is only one way for Salvation,
and it's through Jesus Christ.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth,
and the life. No one comes to the Father
except through Me."
John 14:6

More examples of religions with
false teachings:

One group teaches: For someone to
become a child of God, they must
repent of their sins, then be water
baptized according to their water
baptism formula.
Before someone is fully born of the
water and the spirit, they must speak
in other tongues as the Spirit gives
them utterance.

The sad part about this fellowship is
that they are convinced they are the
only ones right and that everybody
else must fall in line with what they
teach to know the truth.

Another group teaches repentance with
much to do of being baptized, especially
by one of their own preachers.
The truth of this fellowship is they
don't allow any music to be played
in their services.
They spend much time desiring to debate
anyone who would openly disagree
with them.
They also feel that they alone have
the truth, no one on the outside
of this fellowship is called a
Brother or Sister.

Another group believes they alone have
the truth of God's word, they love to
teach on the "mystery" as being something
no one but them understands.
Still yet others who claim to have the truth,
have passed on into the realm of the spirit.

Many refuse healing and the baptism
of the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking
in other tongues as the Spirit
gives utterance.
To those that do believe, have their forms
you must fit to receive the gifts of God.


'But there were also false prophets
among the people, even as there will
be false teachers among you, who
will secretly bring in destructive heresies,
even denying the Lord who bought them,
and bring on themselves swift destruction.
And many will follow their destructive
ways, because of whom the way of truth
will be blasphemed.
By covetousness they will exploit you
with deceptive words; for a long time
their judgment has not been idle,
and their destruction does
not slumber.'
2 Peter 2



Believe the Word of God (Biblical Truth)
and the teaching based on the
Word of God.
Don't accept the teachings of man
and be deceived.


If you are looking for a church that
you can call home:

Pray, and ask for guidance for the
right church that you should
attend in your city or town
that teaches the Word of God in
complete truth. In Jesus' Name.



'All scripture is given by inspiration
of God, and is profitable for doctrine,
for reproof, for correction, for
instruction in righteousness'
2 Timothy 3:16

We believe that there is one God,
eternally existent in three persons:
God the Father, God the Son, and
God the Holy Spirit.
2 Corinthians 13:14

'For God so loved the world, that
He gave His only begotten Son, that
whoever believes in him should
not perish, but have everlasting life.'
John 3:16
