In the church system, each church teaches that they believe the whole bible and nothing but the Bible, this regardless of whether
they do or not. They teach, each of their church members to say, `I believe in scriptures, and if it isn't in scriptures, then I don't
believe it'. This even though the churches negate almost all the Old Testament and usually throw away al most all prophesy from
the New and Old Testament. Their self-righteousness of being better than other churches and the heathen almost always stems
from them being programmed to think, they believe and obey all scriptures. This exactly the same mind set as the supposed law
abiding Scribes and Pharisees of Old.
They truly think they obey all the laws and `Law' and have no sin and are not sinning in any way. Which in their minds gives
them the right to demand that everyone else follow their holy example in obedience to these laws. They feel that because they are
obedient in believing and obeying everything that they are sinless and need `no repentance'.
Luk 18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with
himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are,
extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
They can easily circumvent the spirit of the laws of the Lord, and so pretend in their minds and hearts that they are totally
righteous and without sin. The only problem is that Jesus came and ripped off their cloaks to reveal their sins.
Mathew 5:21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time,
Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger
of the judgment: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with
his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment:
and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of
the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger
of hell fire.
This because Jesus had to blast them and tell them, that their external seeming obedience to the law was still in violation of the
law when their hearts weren't right. For when the law of the Lord extends all the way to our hearts, none of us can have false
fronts or pretenses. We either have the Lord's love in our hearts or we don't. No one can pretend to have love, it just doesn't
work in the long run and they will be found out to be hypocrites. They can NOT obey the law of love, when they haven't got Jesus'
love. It's just that simple.
They worship the pretense of holiness and the supposed position of self-esteem it gives them in their church, but it is worthless
with the Lord. They will continue to say, they believe scriptures and obey the laws even when they don't. They will not follow the
spirit nor be able to understand the principles of the Lord. They are so involved in following the jots and titles of the external law
that they totally miss the spirit and intent of the Lord's law.
It is absolutely impossible for them to read scriptures outside the Bible even though many of them read their church books and
manuals no end. They will absolutely insist that only what are written in the 66 Books of the Protestant Bible are scriptures. For
these verses they have had years practicing evading in spirit and in truth. You will hear them say, `Where does it say that, I never
read that, scriptures don't say that, scriptures are only what is written in the Bible, there are no other scriptures.' They deny that
the Lord is still speaking to us His living WORD, as they say no words of the Lord have been spoken after the Book of
Revelation was written.
Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth
the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add
unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are
written in this book:
This to them meaning, nothing can be added to prophecy in the present time, even though it is literally insane to believe such
nonsense, as it directly contradicts the principle of the Lord stated in Joel 2:28,29, that the Lord will speak to us through dreams,
visions and prophecies in the Last Days.
But these church people flatly deny any new revelations as straight from the pits of hell, even if they add to our understanding of
what will be happening to us. Similarly they absolutely reject any other books from the Apocrypha or any other source. These
they claim are the only scriptures, and everything else is a lie, except maybe for the books written by the leaders of their church.
These they will relish and cherish and point to in explanation of their bible doctrine, as usually the church people have no idea
what they believe or why, and so point to their church books as evidence of their bible believing superiority.
They literally have no idea what true scripture is and so just worship the ones they have selected to obey, while saying
adamantly that they obey all scripture. (SEE What is Scripture) And above all else, they love to denounce and criticize and dam
to hell, anyone that doesn't see their scriptures and interpret them their way, as unbelievers, reprobates or devils. They have to
try and put down others as their whole self esteem revolves around them thinking they are superior to others. And the ones they
want to be superior to, the most are other church people, not just the heathen. Their most vehement hate is saved for churches
that are similar to them .. as they want to think that their doctrine is purer than all others, and others must absolutely conform to
theirs or it is an absolute heinous counterfeit.
Hence they think promoting their type of holiness and obedience to their laws is what makes them so godly and pure and
righteous. They truly think they do not sin, even when they say the vilest things against others. To them, doing nothing and
helping no one is not a sin, but rather shows their righteous lifestyle, in not drinking,smoking, or chasing women.
These Pharisee's worship the thought of them obeying all scriptures, for they want the praise of men for doing so. And yet they
are the worst sinners of all, because they knew not their great, great sin in worshipping themselves rather than the Lord and His
They worship the letter of the law but not the Spirit of the LAW. The Law is LOVE and yet they oppose love.
