WARNING: The following presentation is controversial and may be offensive to some audiences.
Legal Disclaimer: This work is based on Holy Scripture, history, and current events, and what we've learned following God's One True Religion. Nothing is more laughable than to make up "facts" to get across false religious teachings--especially so--when boatloads of HERESY is presented. By the way, there is nothing more offensive to Our Lord than heresy.
If you’re not familiar with heresy, I strongly encourge you to check it out. As you will see, from the following explanation, if you honestly and deeply think about it, heresy is a serious and deadly sin that will dramatically effect your salvation. Why so? To say again: “There is nothing more offensive to Our Lord than heresy.”
Explanation of heresy:
“Heresy is a crime which a person commits who, after he/she has received the Christian faith and still keeping the name Christian, either denies or doubts some truth which was received By God.”
While some people manifest their heresy by written statements or oral declarations, most heresy and apostacy is manifested by deed, not word. Some examples are: Preaching by certain so-called Christian churches that Jesus is not God and does not share in the Holy Trinity; using Bibles that have been re-written that change the meaning intended by God in His Holy Spirit inspired writing of His Holy Book; Religions that go-off on a tangent teaching false doctrines; and, establishing thousands (and hundreds more each day) of new religions applying doctrinaire that differs from each others religions and are in controversion to God’s one and only true Church., etc.,etc., etc.
I was watching a TV evangalist “perform”. Oh, sure, he certainly spoke well and talked the lingo—a sign that he appeared he knew Scripture. Then he went on to exude heresy as if it were going-out-of-style. He was, in fact, actually depriving his viewers (if they believed and followed him) of their salvation which is not conducive in a false religion.
Can religions not synchronized with God’s one true church be approved by God and give you salvation? Many think so but are they sure? After all , we all know excessive drinking and eating certain foods can be bad for us, but they are advertised everywhere and many of us consume them anyway—just as many persons follow heresy taught by false religious preachers.
Christ warned of this heresy almost 2,000 years ago, but His warning, much of the time, goes unheeded. “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Matthew 7:15 and Peter 2:1 “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring damnable HERESIES…” Many will say on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Matthew 7:22,23. These are perhaps the most frightening verses in the Bible. Vast multitudes of so-called Christian preachers fit into this category. They call Jesus “Lord”, but practice the sin of HERESY by not following His EVERY WORD.
The reason why the religious people in Matthew 7:22,23 were not saved is because they REFUSED to obey God’s will concerning the Gospel of Jesus Christ. By changing His words and adding or subtracting even the slighest word of the Gospel corrupts it into a FALSE WAY. Apocalypse 22:18,19 “If any man shall add to these things, God shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book; And if any man shall take away from this book…God shall take away his portion from the tree of life and from the holy city and from things which are written in this book.” Luke 11:28 “…blessed are they that hear the word of God, and KEEP IT.” Did you notice that Matthew 7:22,23 does not say every paraphrased word, but EVERY WORD?
So, why did God establish so many different Christian religions and why does He continue to start-up many more each day that teach different doctrines? The answer is quite simple—He did NOT establish these so-called Christian churches. He established only ONE Church—The Holy Roman Catholic Church. It is a FACT of Scripture and Tradition that Our Lord Jesus Christ founded His Universal Church (the Catholic Church) upon St. Peter.
Matthew 16:17-18 “And I say to thee: That thou are Peter: and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shall bind upon earth, it shall be boundalso in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.”
Our Lord made St. Peter the first Pope, entrusted to him His entire flock, and gave him supreme authority in the Universal Church of Christ. And this truth has been held since the earliest times in the Catholic Church. That which is taught from the Chair of Peter by the Popes of the Catholic Church is the teaching of Jesus Christ Himself. To reject that which is taught by the Popes from the Chair of Peter is simply to despise Jesus Christ Himself.
Luke 10:16 “He that heareth you, heareth me: and heThat despiseth you despiseth me…”
Matthew 18:17 “And if he will not hear the church, let him be to thee as the heathen and publican.”
Can anyone reject any one of God’s truths without falling into heresy?—without separating himself from God’s divinely revealed truths?--without separating himself from God’s one and only true Church? Absolutely not! Its just as Matthew 7:22,23 states. He who dissents even in one point from divinely revealed truth absolutely rejects all Christian teaching.
So, what’s the solution? I won’t sugar coat it. Stop following the Vatican ll deceivers and those Protestant erroneous teachings, and--KEEP GOD’S EVERY WORD.
Apoc.2:10 “Be thou faithful until death: and I will give thee the crown of life.”
It should be obvious by now that this writing is directed to those dealing in heresy. It’s this heresy that will cause one to hear those most frightening words:
“I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7:23)
