The Conflict that lives on.

Conflict-Management-Techniques

The debate has gone on for hundreds of years. The birth place or breeding ground for all Theologies starts with The Council of Nicea. The challenge that exists in all denominations is what to do with God and his Son. We have a need to define them even when they don’t ask for it. We have made this need a defining moment in people’s salvations. We no longer ask if they simply believe in the Son of God/Messiah and his Father. We now need them to confess that God is a Trinity( that somehow the Son is really equal to the Father), or that The Father and Christ are the exact same person, or that Joseph Smith is a profit, or that the Jehovah’s Witnesses are the “Only” Gateway and Organization that God trust and uses in all his ways. None, I repeat “none” of this is a required step for anyone’s salvation. This is when man’s ego gets the best of him and he feels that his theology replaces Salvation requirements for those who wish to be saved. To reiterate again, it does not. The reason why The Father never required such a requirement from anyone was that he being God is much more than anyone can possibly understand let alone come up with a Theology that explains Him. His Son even confirmed that only he truly knows his Father and only the Father could truly reveal his Son as our Savior. Truly I say today, you will be with me in paradise. These true words were spoken by Christ and further proves that no such requirement of Baptism in water, confession of Trinity or Oneness was ever done and yet just by accepting that Christ didn’t belong on a Pole/Tree and that he just might be the Son of God and Messiah, this man received salvation and was granted internal life with Christ. This proves that really every single thing granted or removed is in Christ’s hand’s thanks to His Father and God Yahweh. There is no separate and different path but Christ. There is no extra set of rituals but Christ. And ultimately, according to 1 Corinthians 15:28 there will be no other but the Head over all things, offices, positions and over all people even the Son, The Father (seated as God and Master) when all is done. This one fact alone is hard to deal with if you stand on what you were told to believe instead of what the scripture really say. Men that believe in the trinity try their best to explain away things like this but can’t. Men that believe in Oneness try and do the same thing but also fail. Nobody is just willing to allow the scripture to speak for themselves. And when I say scripture I mean the original writings, not some bible that has pushed out lies in hopes of furthering a particular Theology that Roman put in place.  So what is the right thing to do here? Honestly, I have been seeking that my whole life. I still haven’t found out one perfect church or teacher that teaches and knows all things. The last one that I heard about took off in the middle of the air to go back to his Father and God. All I do know is what the bible says. Christ is the Son of the Living God. He is our enthroned King and we await his return. His Father and God is our Father and God who has granted his Son Life and in turn, through our faith in his son and the Son’s sacrifice, we will have eternal life through his Son relying solely on God’s Holy Spirit to power us through our life’s trials and challenges as we witness to all of mankind about the wonderful Gift of Salvation and our responsibility of keeping and honoring that gift of Salvation by remaining Holy for our God is Holy. Amen!

Christ already opened the door…Not man!

If you can ever get this simple truth it will free you from all that you have ever felt wrong with organized religion or man’s influence in churches. 

“LONG BEFORE THERE WAS A CONCEPT OF THE TRINITY, A ONENESS DEBATE, A MORMON, OR JEHOVAH’S WITNESS, SALVATION WAS ALREADY FREE, AVAILABLE, AND GIVEN TO ALL THROUGH CHRIST.”

 Stop and think about this! Really think about it! Put aside you assumptions, fears , and or biaisness. Do you really understand the weight of this statement?  I truly believe God has allowed me to see this fact that has existed for thousands of years and yet not focused on enough by his people. I pass this too all who will listen, not as new revelation but a reminder of His doctrine not man’s. Mankind are the ones creating theories and new doctrine to make themselves more relevant. To make others look up to them as if they have more knowledge. They strike with great anger at any who challenges their ways because they hold on to it as need for affirmation. All along they’re souls of men that are confused and feel lost when they see for themselves the existing holes in the ways of men which is taught as God’s doctrine instead of what it is…man’s doctrine. We only need God’s Only Begotten Son, Christ who died and was raised up to bring us salvation, forgiveness, and a New Convenant so we may love our God with all of our strength, mind, and body and love our neighbors as oursleves. This is salvation and the only way and truth we will ever need per God’s doctrine. If we truly believe AND do then our past sinful life will not be acceptable to us to live in anymore. We will seek holiness for He is holy and we will seek to worship Him in spirit and truth as we are baptised in His name and go forth preaching HIS gospel throughout the earth. Amen!


Be careful of those who tell you what God won’t do!

There is something special about being a child a God. It’s personal and intimate. He is my Father and God all in one. Through his Son I have salvation because of his blood through for our New Covenant. These things all saved men know to be true. However, when you meet certain people, denomations, and organizations that tell you that God won’t do things he has already done for you in your life(that isn’t against who God is in his word)then you should know to be careful. One such a case happened to me. When a Jehovah Witnesses tried to tell me that Satan saved my wife because his Organization tells him to believe that God doesn’t speak to people’s spirit, doesn’t give people dreams, and or any other form of communication other than the bible. My wife when she was in the last year of school was working too much and not sleeping enough. She attempted to drive to school after yet another short night of sleep. While on the road my wife told me she heard a voice from inside her spirit telling her to put her seatbelt on, she did. This was the last thing she remembered before waking up at the bottom of a hill smashed into a concrete barrier. The doctors said this was the only thing that saved her life. So, a Jehovah witness tells me it was Satan trying to make my Wife believe that God was speaking to her to help her. Why? Because they are taught that God and his angels have said all they are going to say in the bible and won’t speak to us in any other way. So because they are taught this and taught “to obey without question, even if it doesn’t make sense”( I’m not exaggerating they are told to do this word for word). They can not allow situations that happen to them or anybody else mean anything that could go against their organizations statements and beliefs( not God but their organization). Basically allowing man to tell them what God will or won’t do. He also told me that this was his belief in another scenario when atheist had a dream about hell and they turn their life over to God that somehow this is Satan doing this to them to fool them(who already doesn’t believe in God) in believing something that is against God to do (they feel). So I guess, now Satan is helping turn people who don’t believe in God to Salvation simply by making them believe God could show them a dream or warning??? Look I don’t have a lot of problems with Jehovah Witnesses as some have seen in my writing. I don’t however agree with 100% of their views and this is one of the bigger ones. I think ALL denominations of Christianity have truth found in them somewhere. Nobody is 100% wrong or 100% right. But whatever your beliefs are you should be careful on what you deem as Satan’s work vs God’s. It’s called blasphemy of the Holy Spirit and it’s unforgivable. Most importantly no man can tell you what God has done, is doing , or will or won’t do in your life. The funniest thing, consequently, since we are talking about it, it’s funny that they say that they SAY that they are the ONLY people being used by God but yet they never hear from him. And if they never hear from God being the Only people God uses and approves for salvation in this date and time, how in the world does God ever help correct the many false predictions they have made and continue to make. Personally, I think someone needs to ask for some kind of help with over 100+ years of false prophecies as your foundation. Then again,maybe they are right, maybe God does refuse to speak to “them” for whatever reason. This could be the reason why they keep making false prophecies and having to wait on the Elders to correct the direction they are going instead of allowing the Holy spirit and his word to show them. Who knows! Faithfully one day all denominations can play together and unify in a common goal of salvation through Christ.

I’m burnt out on Man and Denominations

“We are the only way to God”. “Our church is the only ones that are the true church”. ” We are the only organization and vessel that God uses”.” You have to believe in three distinct persons”. “All other churches are false”. “God speaks through our church leaders with the truth”. “Unless you say and believe our Creed you are not Christian”. “Unless you are baptized by our priest, pastors, or in our building it doesn’t count”. From Baptist, Mormons, Catholics, UCG, Pentacostal, Jehovah Witnesses and any other denomination I can think of its the same. What happen to “Christ is the Key to ALL salvation? What happened to “all that follow Christ Yeshua, the Only Begotten Son of the Living God Yahweh” and believe that he died for your sins and was rose by God after 3 days and 3 nights to sit at the right hand of the Father Yahweh in heaven then you will be saved? Why can’t all who believe on this and live their life in holy matter as required in scriptures be saved? Why is it more than this? The scripture doesn’t put anymore than this on Christians. WHY DOES MAN??? I fell like the only person in the room that can see how complex man has made salvation. It’s like everybody closes their eyes to this. How many different denominations have the same rhetoric and every single one of them can’t point out any verse that declares their extra requirements as to determine one’s salvation over Christ himself. Last I checked nobody has the authority over salvation but Christ and His Father. So what does one do? That is the million dollar question. I’m not looking for perfection because it doesn’t exist. But I am looking for common sense and fairness. It’s really simple. If the scripture doesn’t say it, you can’t either. God through his Son is the author and finisher of all salvation, not man, so how can we tell others their destination if they die and they exist as a follower of Christ if the word doesn’t declare such.

Trinity, oneness, and others are all Man’s very poor and pathetic attempts of labeling and trying to define a being that has already told us we aren’t able to truly know him or understand him

. So it’s the stupidest thing in the world to create denominations theories like such because even if you are the closet one right you are still light years from being right. Which, by the way, is confessed by all denominations mind you( that they still believe they are still not close to explaining God because we are flesh while he is eternal). So based on that truth and denominations principles if you explain God wrong(trinity. Oneness, etc) then you aren’t saved and sent to hell in most views. So where does that place you? Think about it while you’re busy claiming other as Heretics cults,or Non-Christian. The ugliest thing and circle of degradation is that the only thing one can do is start yet another denomination to get away from false belief. But why do this? All you do is end up becoming the the very thing that adds to more confession..,yet another denomination. I just want to quote and accept what the Bible says and move on. I know you’re going to say that is what you do in your church or belief but hear me out. I think I’m going to just accept the scripture instead of trying to interpret it or figure out some deeper meaning. Scripture says The Father is greater than the Son… then The Father is greater than the Son. Most people will try and say oh no that only because the Son was human. Well I’m not going to say that…I’m going to just accept the fact that it says this and leave how and what that entails up to God because this is where the denominations creations start from. So When the word says Christ is God…then he is God..I don’t have to explain how he’s God, only that he is. I don’t have to attach a made up concept like trinity, oneness, or any other. If this creates a conflict with man’s traditional beliefs …then it does. When the scripture Calls the Father “The Only True God”…then the Father is the Only true God. But what about Christ? Does that conflict with what was said about Christ? My answer, maybe, maybe not..let’s let God work that out when we are raised from the dead. Until then I can’t be in trouble standing before God quoting only his scripture but I can if I attempt to theorize and assume something that isn’t explained and or said and it leads others wrongly down a false path. Therfore I choose Life and sanity. Are there denominations out there doing that???

“Cross” = “Stauros”??? Why aren’t we honest with ourselves regardless of denominations?

In Homeric and classical Greek, until the early 4th century BC, stauros meant an upright stake, pole,[5][6] or piece of paling, “on which anything might be hung, or which might be used in impaling [fencing in] a piece of ground.”[7]

In the literature of that time, it never means two pieces of timber placed across one another at any angle, but always one piece alone.[8]

Let me just say I personally don’t care if Christ died on a wooden wall or wooden table. It wouldn’t make his sacrifice any less important me. But for most Christian they can’t accept facts like what’s shown above. When I say fact I mean hard factual proven unbiased information. This isn’t even debatable. If you look you will find this fact in Homeric and classical Greek. And most importantly this isn’t a Jehovah Witnesses thing like most will try and say. Just because they know this fact and can accept this for what it is doesn’t mean they made this up. They didn’t. It’s truly factual info that can be found by anyone unbaisely seeking truth. So why do we as Christian continue to push the idea of a cross as the instrument of Christ’s death? Even the Bible warns us not to make ANY symbol of worship in Deuteronomy 4:16. Yet we still do and will fight against anyone that shows them this info as they refuse to accept this. People have gone on so far as to really think that the Cross somehow protects them. They wear it as such and all they are doing is creating an idol symbol. We can thank tv and false teachings of the Catholic Church for this. To worship a cross symbol especially with zero evidence showing that it was actually used by Roman’s at that time, is as insane as worshipping a random bullet because your loved one stabbed. Why don’t people see this? An instrument used to kill is no more Christ than a knife is you if you were murdered by it. Stop people, think for one second on the simplicity of the truth and what you assume and what is reality. Christ is Christ, the instrument is what it says it is a Stake( a single piece of pole timber not crossed nor of two pieces which is what is needed to create a cross)used to curse and impale Yeshua. They don’t become the same item nor does his death make this thing a blessing to wear and held on to like it was him. It’s not, never was, never will it be..Christ our Savior.

Every Christian faith foundation or belief can be reasoned in the Bible by those who want to believe it.

                                                  The tree of Christian denomination

Throughout all my experience from Baptist, Catholic, Mormons, Pentecostal, Non-denominational, Jehovah Witnesses, etc, etc I have found one simple but inescapable truth, there is no One denomination that has all things right nor has all the answers. If one searches for themselves and unbaisely looks at the truth over the course of years as I have done you will begin to see a pattern that you can not solve. That pattern is seen in all denominations is that scripture doesn’t fully back one single denomination fully. You will find answers about one subject or belief by one denomination but just as soon as you find it you will find that fact that goes against something that denomination stands for that they just push to the side as unimportant if they can’t rightful prove in the scripture or they have a half baked excuse that only the untrained or unseasoned Christian will take at face value and move on. They all use a myriad of different steps when facing a scripture that disproves their denominational beliefs on a subject but will take another scripture at face value when it supports their belief. I like to call this “The Denominational lack of equal reasoning”. Facts like the concept the Trinity being invented long after the Bible writers were finished is not something most trinity believers like talking about and they furiously put up a defense against. Or the concept of Christ having a separate spirit and will from the Father, less knowledge, and has to summit himself under the Father to Oneness believer brings up all kinds of far fetch excuses and none of which is supported and mentioned in scriptures. Jehovah Witnesses don’t have a excuse for false prophecies, Isaiah 9:6 and others scripture that declare Christ as God..not god..yet they continue to use and take the stance. And we can’t look over the Catholic who create statues and pray to them as the saints of old yet no scripture in their Bible or any other Bible supports this act not to mention allows one to create statues bowing and praying to them. They also hate the simple truth that there is ONLY one mediator between God and Man and he isn’t their priest or pope. Last but not least, the Mormons who again have false prophecies they don’t like addressing with false witness testimonies they have and leaders who don’t tell them that the founders of their belief say they are men that live on the moon and sun. After all this what I can say is that they all can show scriptures that support a concept of their belief in the Bible. And if they can’t they are all really good at piecing things together to make it look like what they believe. The danger in this is that “piece scripting” can be applied to the Bible or anything else to make whatever belief you have found somewhere somehow in anything. Basically people will see what they want to see and the things that show up that goes against that belief they can find a way to ignore it and or try and disprove it or excuse it. It’s been a tough 20 years of my life studying all this, trying to find the “Absolute truth”, but my conclusion is that there is no absolute truth known. No one denomination that has all the answers and or that is perfect. So if this is what you seek in your journey you would do well to remember that in the end you will find, if you are honest with yourself, no one that has all the answers and or no mistakes in their belief and walk as a Christian. It will come down and in full circle to just having “Faith” in Christ himself, not a concept of explaining him or His Father.

Jehovah Witnesses are hated but most,if not all, don’t even have a reason!

  What is a false Church or Cult? Who is truly the church of God scripture talks about? Who truly are following the Bible’s teachings? These questions and more will be answered and once answered I challenge you to observe and notice the results.

First up define what is a Cult? A Cult is a system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object. By definition a cult could be any religious denomination out there. Whether we are talking about 90% of the Black churches that Idolize and run up behind their Pastors as if they are gods and or rock stars or the biggest religious denomination in the World kissing the hands and rings and worshiping their Pope and stautues as God’s voice on earth. Both sets believe that whatever is spoken by their Pastor or Pope holds more weight than other man effectively given an image of the definition of Cult. To break it down even more, by definition People could say all of us that Follow Christ (who is that “particular Figure” defined above) could be considered a cult. Do you see the problem now? Based on definition alone it could be applied to every denomination even every religion on the planet. If this is the case then what makes the word applicable to only some denominations like Jehovah’s witnesses but not others?

Growing up I was taught to run and hide when they came to my door. I was told they were a cult. I was told to not associate myself with them and even hate them from other “Christians”. Effectively I was told they were evil. Some skip the pleasantries and go right to calling them a false church and a heretic. Yet all answer the question to why they hate the same way, they really dont know. As I grew up I saw no beast or evil from those I met as Jehovah’s witnesses. In fact I saw the exact opposite and a group of people that act more like a Christian than those who call them false. I saw a people not merely showing up for church but applying holiness to their life and putting in real work while doing so. I saw meek and humble people interested in spreading belief in God and his Son more than they were concern with what soap opera was showing on tv or how to sleep with pastor or how much tithes brother or sister gave this week. I saw a group of people honestly trying to eliminate sin and anything that could be linked to sin away from them while other denominations looked for ways to get by with sin or modify it so others could sleep better at night and come back next Sunday with more tithes. They also taught somehow that they could do what they wanted and yet be approved and saved by God while the bible said opposite. So what makes Jehovah witnesses evil then? What made them a false church? I studied the Catholic denomination and found that they are the only denomination or religion on the earth that makes you study about false gods (Greek mythology) in order to be one of them. They are also responsible for every morphed Pagan/Christian tradition that exist in every church and the public belief (winter solstice/Christ birth, Easter bunny and Christ death, etc). Most importantly they are the ones responsible for the Concept of the Trinity..burned humans alive until they confessed the Trinity concept ( Council of Nicea). I spoke to a Priest (they call them father) and he told me flat out that they know that the bible teaches against things like creating statues and bowing down to them and doesn’t give instruction to pray to anyone other than the Father through Christ but they believe because they “Love” God that this won’t matter to him even though his word says it’s a sin.
Now, I spoke to a great many other denominations like Baptist, Pentecostal, Methodist, etc about the belief of the Catholic and none of them believed that their belief was correct or even remotely being accepted by God or his word. But here is the funniest thing, of them all none of them called the Catholics a cult or false. So we have a denomination according all other denominations are teaching false belief in saints, teaching false worship, and participating in false rituals but yet they aren’t called a Cult or hated but Jehovah witnesses are???? Think about it people. Have you ever seen people claim to hate the Pope and Catholic from a denominational attack or view? You most likely haven’t and never will because like it or not every denomination that believes in the Trinity are linked to the Catholic Church. Hate them hate yourselves, and we know that’s not going to happen.

So it can’t be based on their belief that people hate and accuse Jehovah witnesses. So,I found that all other denominations teach that Jehovah’s Witnesses made a false prophecy so this makes them a cult and false church. That initially made since then. If Jehovah’s Witnesses were the ONLY denominations that made false prophecies this would finally put light on why them but not others should be hated and accused I guess. So I set out to find if Jehovah’s Witness were the only denomination who made a false prediction or prophecy. What I found, once again, was that they aren’t the only ones. Matter of fact ALL major dominations have had so-call prophets claiming to know about the end of the world and were wrong or are linked back to one. Baptist, Pentecostal, Catholics, Mormons, all of them. Why aren’t the other denominations called Cults and False Churches if this is what makes a cult or a false church? This is the question yet again because there is no base found.
No real reason why I should believe that a peaceful denomination that refrains from even war or killing , Baptize in Christ , pray in the name of Christ..and obeys Yahweh in both word and deed should be hated or called false more than the others who don’t hold true to such acts.

Then the picture became clear. What I needed to find out was not what they DID to become hated, but more about what they DIDN’T do to become hated. Jehovah’s witnesses as I have stated are peaceful people that teach peaceful actions and holiness. They hold themselves to a standard that the world declares isn’t fun or free but yet the bible declares as holy. They remove the things that are linked to false gods that the world has tied into fun and games like Halloween, Christmas, birthdays and Easter and it is here where the hatred comes in. People hate things that stand against their traditions, even when their traditions are wrong they fight against changing or anyone that doesn’t agree with them. The World also hates anything that compromises the growth of our economy, similar to what Paul did in Ephesus with the silver used to created false god statues and trinkets for protection. If people were taught about the truth behind these holidays and didn’t break their bank accounts to buy things at Christmas, Easter, and other events, what would that do with the world’s finances and jobs? How would that effect family events that most have made themselves believe are a must thanks to TV and the media? “NO, no, no. Stay away from anyone that threatens these things. They are a danger to our families and way of life because they lead people away from what the World has taught us and showed us on TV as important and they focus on a peaceful, holy, and accountability type of life that puts Jehovah truly before all while other compromise and fight to remain attached to the World’s view of what is right and allowed instead of what Jehovah requires”. All other false doctrine teachings and denominations are ok’d and not hated because they don’t interfere with the traditions of men and the world. This is truly THE REAL reason why they are hated and called a cult. While I am not in agreement with all beliefs of JW I do feel they are a rare breed of believers, even the most consistent in their beliefs and actions. I am a Christ follower and while denominations aren’t my thing I see where unjust belief exist towards Jehovah’s Witnesses and believe if there was a single Church following The Bible both inside/outside the walls of the building, it’s them in this time and age. If all churches are threaten and hunted down I believe the Jehovah’s witnesses would be the last to break or compromise their beliefs for the sake of fitting in for the rest of the world. What this ultimately makes them I have yet to find out as it isn’t up to me. It’s up to Jehovah but most importantly it’s not up to other denominations to hate falsely especially ones living a better example of Christ than they are.
