Teachings and the way they lived. And the way they taught the first century Christians to live. Compare

They Say The Catholics Worship God in Their Own Way –and Many Say

God’s Holy Spirit Can Not Be With Any Church That Teaches That ---and does not stick to imitating Jesus’ Teachings and His Apostles Original Teachings and the way they lived. With No Modification—

Use Only Original Inspired Words

So whatever those Churches (and most Bible Publishers) are doing --They are doing it with no help from The One Absolute Undivided God.-- 4 It is God’s desire that all men have salvation and come to the full (precise) (accurate) (correct) knowledge (Greek: epignosis: recognition, discernment) of the truth--1 Tim 2-4-6.

5 There is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

Jn 1 5:3

For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome


                                                                 Shake off the dust of your feet.

Mat 10:14

(ASV)  And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, as ye go forth out of that house or that city, shake off the dust of your feet.

(ISV)  If no one welcomes you or listens to your words, as you leave that house or town, shake its dust off your feet.


Mat 10:11  "Whatever town or village you enter, find out who is worthy in it and stay there until you leave.

Mat 10:12  As you enter the house, greet it.

Mat 10:13  If the house is receptive, let your blessing of peace come on it. But if it isn't receptive, let your blessing of peace return to you.

Mat 10:14  If no one welcomes you or listens to your words, as you leave that house or town, shake its dust off your feet.


                              ASV-Mat 7:6  Give not that which is holy unto the dogs,

neither cast your pearls before the swine, lest haply they trample them under

                                                              their feet,and turn and rend you.


(ISV)  Mat 7:6  "Never give what is holy to dogs or throw your pearls before pigs. Otherwise, they will trample them with their feet and then turn around and attack you."


Eph 6:12 (ASV) For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world-rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Eph 6:12-13

12 For our fight isn’t against flesh and blood, but against the governments, the authorities, the mighty ones of this worldly darkness, and against the unseen power of wickedness in the heavens.

13 So because of this, pick up all the armor from God [so you can] fight in that wicked day and still be left standing in the end.


                                                                 So be as cunning as serpents

Mat 10:16  "See, I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. So be as cunning as serpents and as innocent as doves.

Mat 10:17  Watch out for people, for they will hand you over to the local councils and whip you in their synagogues.

Mat 10:18  Because of me you will be brought before governors and kings to testify to them and the gentiles.

Mat 10:19  When they hand you over, don't worry about how you are to speak or what you are to say, for in that hour what you are to say will be given to you.

                    Jesus foretold that his teachings would be subverted.

He said The kingdom of the heavens has become like a man that sowed fine seed in his field.

While men were sleeping, his enemy came and over sowed weeds in among the wheat, and left."


Surprisingly, when servants brought the evil deed to the man's attention and asked for permission to collect the weeds, the man said: "No; that by no chance, while collecting the weeds, you uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest; (Study HARVESTwork.htm) and in the harvest season I will tell the reapers, First collect the weeds and bind them in bundles to burn them up, then go to gathering the wheat into my storehouse."-Matthew 13:24-30.

As Jesus himself explained, in his illustration the man who sowed wheat in the field represents Jesus, and the seeds he planted represent true Chris­tians. The enemy who sowed weeds among the wheat represents "the Dev­il." The weeds represent lawless, apostate men who falsely claim to be servants of God. (Matthew 13:36-42) The apostle Paul gave further details of what would happen. He said: I know that after my going away oppressive wolves will enter in among you and will not treat the flock with tenderness. and from among you yourselves men will rise and speak  twisted  things to draw away the disciples after themselves

Acts , 20:29- 20:30 Compare .



Christianity Subverted

Did what Jesus illustrated and what Paul foretold come true? It certainly did. Ambitious men took con­trol of the congregation that Jesus had established and used it for their own ends. Jesus had told his followers: "You are no part of the world." (John 15:19) Nevertheless, power-hungry men formed al­liances with rulers and formed State churches that amassed immense power and wealth. These church­es taught "twisted things." For example, they taught people to worship the State and to sacrifice their lives for it in warfare. Thus, so-called Christians participat­ed in Crusades and slaughtered people whom they considered to be unbelievers. They also went to war and killed their own "brothers" of the same religion. They certainly did not practice Christian neutrality and love of neighbor.-Matthew 22:37-39; John 15:19; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5; 10:3-10:4-10:5  John 4:8, 11.

Clearly, the churches that for centuries have called themselves Christian represent merely a facade of Christianity. This explains why, as we observe, there is a continuing trend of churches fragmenting into sects, churches meddling in politics, and churches disregarding God's laws. Such bad fruitage is the product, not of true Christianity. but of counterfeit Christianity. .Which the Devil planted.

                              How Much Unscriptural Tradition Will Jesus Tolerate—

It Is Doubtful That Those That Teach Mystery Doctrines And/Or Unscriptural

Traditions and Customs Will Stop Doing So—Why ?

(1) Because they control the common people with them---as did the Jewish Teachers controlled their Flocks (as Jesus pointed out)

With their Traditional Teachings –A lot of people look up to mystery Teachers because they have been inculcated (taught) to

Believe these Teachers have been Blest from above.

JESUS CHRIST certainly was the greatest Teacher on earth. (John 7:46)

Another Parable --of Jesus’ is the sheep and the goats,

Jesus pointed to a time for him to act in a special capacity: “When the Son of man arrives in his glory (Matthew 25:31) This is important to us because it is the illustration with which Jesus concludes his reply to the question:  But what does this mean for us?

Who Are the Sheep and the Goats?  Obviously, the sheep are judged worthy of being on Jesus’ right side of honor and favor and represent a class of humans. (Ephesians 1:20; Hebrews 1:3) So the sheep must be ones who over a period of time have come to the aid of—and actively supporting—Christ’s brothers and have exercised faith to the extent of receiving a righteous standing before God.

The Sheep like one’s have stuck to the ImitateRule.htm and the Goat like one’s have not’

Once we appreciate the judgment shown in this parable, we get a clearer view of who the goats appear to be.

It is not for us to determine exactly who are who are all the goats.— 2Cor11-4-15.htm Mark 2:8; Luke 5:22; John 2:24, 25; Romans 14:10-12; 1 Corinthians 4:5.

In the parable of the talents, Jesus showed what is required of those who will rule with him in heaven, but in this parable he shows what is expected of the Kingdom’s subjects. (Matthew 25:14-23) Pointedly, because of their undivided support of Jesus’ brothers, the sheep inherit a place in the earthly realm of his Kingdom. Some Sheep will enjoy life on a paradise earth—
