Statement of Faith & links





Statement of Faith


The Word of God teach us about love, our motive must always be based in love. But the Truth of God is always interwoven with His Love, they can't be separated. We can't show God's love to people without giving them God's Truth.

"..that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— Ephesians 4:14-16

Sadly there are many in churches today, promoting God's love but disregarding God's Truth, using the excuse of unity or peace.

"But Love without truth is apostasy.  .... Apostasy is defined as a great falling away from truth: Literally, “a divorcement from truth".  Pastor Joseph Herrin, Parablesblog 

- While we all understand we should pray for, love and welcome everyone who wants to know God to our congregations, including people that don't share our same doctrine, we also understand that we cannot neglect the necessity of keeping the sound or healthy doctrine being taught from our pulpits (1Tim 1:10; 6:3; 2 Tim.1:13; 4:3; Titus 1:9; 2:1).
We should love even our enemies, but the bible is very clear that we are not suppose to imitate or follow the world but to be separated unto God.

The Word of God mentions the importance of staying in the same doctrine that we heard from the apostles : 2 Tim. 1:13; 1 Timothy 6:3-5; 1 Tim 4:16; 1 Cor.11:1-2; 1 Cor.15:1-2 ; 2 John 1:9-11, Galatians 1:6-10, Romans 16:17, 2 Tim.4:3-4, 2 John 1:9, 2 Thess.3:6, 2 Cor.6, Luke 12:5, Col.2:8, etc. 

It causes deep grieve to our hearts when we hear false teachings using the name of Christ, but we are also aware that it doesn't take Him by surprise. The Lord warned us of this in His Word and instructed us to exercise discernment.

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils" 1 Tim. 4:1

 "Test all things; hold fast what is good" 1 Thes. 5:21

 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try (test) the spirits whether they are of God1John 4:1
 
"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits". Matthew 7: 15

In sheep clothing means that in their external appearance they look like Christians (we are Jesus' sheep), but they are deceiving the sheep in order to eat them, use them for their gain or to destroy them.

The word prophet originally means one who foretells future events. But prophets, however, also means anyone who speaks the words or revelations of God to the people, so the word came also to denote all who were leaders or teachers, like Abraham, Moises, etc. Gen. 20:7; Ex. 7:1; Deut. 34:10; Hos. 12:13

What fruits to look for? Besides actions, words are also fruits

"For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

"Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the SadduceesMatthew 16:12

"For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears".  Acts 20: 29-31

- Because of these perilous times we are living in, we are trying to prayerfully warn here of false doctrines (teachings). 
We are not trying to accuse men, we don't question their sincerity, motives, their personal lives, way of working, characters, believes, etc.  But we question their doctrine in light of the Scriptures (The Bible).  We are just showing wrong doctrines that are tough as biblical and comparing them with the Word of God.
We don’t question a false teacher’s motives or sincerity, we question their doctrine in light of Scripture. - See more at: http://www.echozoe.com/archives/2509#sthash.MCqvYeQa.dpuf

Titus commands us to be able to confront & refute false teachings:

"For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.  ... This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faithnot giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth." Titus 1:10-14

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables" 2 Tim. 4:3-4


Unbiblical teachings affecting today's Church

The Word of God says 1 Peter 4:17 that the judgment of God begins at the House of God. I'm convinced we are already experiencing some, and that very soon it will intensify to the point that will be evident to everybody. Our intentions by showing all these links are not to accuse or offend any one, but just to sound the alarm and expose unbiblical doctrines in order to protect the body of Christ and help avoid some pain to those who are open to listen & may want to rectify before the Lord comes to clean His house. No one is infallible of error. But all our works are going to be tested by fire: 1 Cor. 3: 10-20.

We realize this blog is not for everyone, that no matter how gentle we try to explain our concern some will still find it offensive or unnecessary. We understand & respect your opinion on that, but we expect the same from you. Disagreeing or warning is not judging, we all are suppose to exercise discernment in order to make decisions.

  This blog is aimed at Christians that are genuinely concern with sound doctrine and are looking to please God and not men. If you are into ecumenism then this blog may offend you, that's not our intention, but we exhort you to check your bible, God's Words. Here we are trying to make the Christian Church aware of danger by exposing some unbiblical doctrines (teachings) & movements that are making inroads into the body of Christ like never before. Let's have in consideration that eternal life is at stake here. Of course it's safer & more comfortable to keep silent so others wont criticize you, but if we don't sound the alarm, who will?

We are in times of apostasy (departing from the true faith) and the Word of God tell us clearly what is the main reason for this to happen: "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils" 1 Tim. 4:1

We'll do good if we take in consideration that any major false doctrine could well be a doctrine of a demon. We should not look at the nice preacher who is repeating them (pray for them), but we need to find out the real origin of those doctrines, & go all the way back were it started.

We can avoid apostasy by searching the Words inspired by the Holy Spirit and comparing them with what we hear from others:

 " These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so" Acts 17:11

Jesus was merciful and patient with the sinners & those that wanted to know God. But remember how he spoke publicly to the religious leaders of his time, who boasted of knowing God & being so spiritual but really didn't do His will. They all were believers, of the same God of the Bible, the God of Abraham Issac & Jacob, but the Pharisees and Sadducees were more worry about their own power and authority, and Jesus exposed them. See Matthew 23:13-33.  John the Baptist called the religious leaders of his day "a generation of vipers" (snakes) (Matt. 3:7).  Today, he would be accused of being unloving, divisive, and unchristian. The apostle John named Diotrephes (3 John 9). The apostle Paul also exposed many false teachers by name. We are in times of apostasy, we also need to be careful and understand the difference between good and evil, between the holy and the profane, and be able to discern between the clean and the unclean

"Now I beseech you, brethren, mark (#G4648 consider) them which cause divisions and offenses (#G4625 stumbling blocks) contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple." Rom. 16:17-18

Notice they make speeches (or have the authority to do so) & serve their own bellies, meaning they have some type of gain. The division is caused by the teachers who bring the false doctrine, not by the person that is trying to defend the faith nor the churchgoer with no 'ecclesiastic' authority.  We all are suppose to love one another even when found someone in fault & as possible look to restore them. Gal.6:1-2  but not be so easy with the position of teachers & leaders.  James 3:1,   1 Timothy 3: 2-12

Most if not all of these churches that have unbiblical teachings that you see in this page 'coincidentally' form part of the ecumenical movement.  For more information please go - Here -

It is important to note that there is  an ecumenical movement in the church (that started with The Second Vatican Council, & still continues today), which is looking to unite all religions, and we need to be careful and ask ourselves if this is really the will of God, or if this may be the plan of the enemy for a One World Religion. (Rev. 13:6-8,12 & 15)

Don’t get me wrong; I do love Catholic people. I did all my elementary, middle & high school in a Catholic School, most of my family are Catholics, I have a good relationship with them and love them dearly.  But love doesn't exempt me (on the contrary) from the responsibility of warning of danger & expose some unbiblical teachings that keep them in bondage. This is a system that teaches tradition of men instead of the Word of God, keeping them distracted from the true & only way to the Father, a relationship with His only begotten son 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

The Fundamentals of the Real Gospel


--------------------------------------------------------------------

Because of the condition of the church today,  the Lord will have to clean & purify His church very soon.  Judgment begins at the House of God.  1 Peter 4:17, Ezekiel 34.
We need to pray without ceasing and always be prepared spiritually to give account to God.
After this cleansing from God we believe the world will be able to see true unity, which is the unity of the Holy Spirit in the true body of Christ.
"Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all. See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Do not quench the Spirit.  Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.

 
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ
."  
1 Thess. 4:14-23
