Christ without Theology!

the·ol·o·gy

THēˈäləjē/

noun

the study of the nature of God and religious belief.

religious beliefs and theory when systematically developed.

Is it possible? Can we have this world please? Do you remember when you were saved by Grace and faith? Before the Greek and Hebrew text studies? Before the definition and need to say and repeat phrases like ontological Trinity, Oneness, and Arianism belief systems. Before you went out to debate with Mormons or Jehovah’s Witnesses because you just thought you really had them trapped in the corner, all the while you still had bones in your closet that you still needed to uproot causing them to represent a better view of God than you did. Long before you needed to be up front or have a position of authority in the church. Way back when you confessed Christ as you Lord and Savior? When you accepted him into your heart and all you wanted to do was to be closer to God through his Son and live holy? Remembering what it felt like to help others that needed help without judgement or shaming. Before you signed up for biblical study classes and studied prophecy meanings. Before you ever knew that there was anything called a literal translation of bible. Or before you even knew there was so many different bibles at all. You see, if you are like me, then you do remember these things. And if you are like me, you might have forgotten about what it was like back then because we are so weighed down with theology and man’s allegorical interpretations of scriptures. Now, that which is pure, innocent, and loving has been tied into Man’s attempts to define the One being that can’t be defined. What we had prior is what initially saved us. It is what is pure from Him. I personally have never felt a stronger connection to God than before theology became the center piece. And the biggest fact is that God never once required theology from us to be saved or to be his children. I just don’t see the need for a “Religious belief” if God seeks a “Relationship” with us. 

The God of Jesus!

The God of Jesus

1 Cor 8:6( it flat out says The Father, not the Son, is the true God)

6 there is actually to us one God, the Father, from whom all things are and we for him; and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things are and we through him

Over and over again the scripture makes this fact known so many times. If it’s not Paul’s writing it’s John’s writings in John 17:3 – Revelations and many many other’s. Scriptures like this are found throughout the Bible in the NT of the scriptures. You read them and don’t think twice about them until it’s really put into your view. Praise be “the GOD” and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Clearly showing that the two subjects aren’t the same and clearly pointing out that one of the Subject is the God over the other. Now, what man has come up with ( which Scripture NEVER, I repeat NEVER says itself) is that the reason scripture says this is only because this addressed Christ as a human and being Born a man, it automatically creates the relations between his Father as his God because he was a human being. This, like I said above is never, ever, never said as the case. This thought is known as Theology ( Trinity or even possible Oneness if you believe Christ to be the Father) but it isn’t scripture stated. Nowhere does the bible support Christ having a God strictly because he was born a Man. I repeat again, Nowhere does the scripture ever define roles of having a God being placed on a man simply because he was born as a human. In fact, God says in his word, over and over again, that the God of you is who you choose to make it so with. A man can make a cow, money, even Satan his god and anything else if he chooses to. Another fact that is consistent is that we see no such requirement in scripture that defines God only to humans. Angels have their God as we see in Heaven. So different plains of existence would never automatically create relations of a God over a being. It didn’t matter where Christ was prior to earth, while on earth, or there after, Yahweh is and has always been the Head, Father, and God of Christ. If it wasn’t so, the moment All power and Authority was given to Christ and he returned to Heaven risen, Yahweh would no longer be presented as Christ’s God. But in Revelation, we clearly see the same role and submission of Christ still in the hands of his Father and God Yahweh in Revelation 3:12 and especially 1 Cor 15:24-28

temple

1Cor 15-24-28

the end

This is Christ talking directly to John(in Revelations). He declares, once again, while in heaven long after his return from Earth, no longer human, that he has a God over him that will give them a new name like He(God) will do for Him(Christ) as well. Christ specifically calls the temple his God’s Temple. And no matter what you feel and try to explain away, these are the words from the scriptures and original text. Unlike other scriptures out there that are debatable base on hermeneutics. Nobody disputes these statements in any translation. The True God has no Father or God over him, doesn’t need anyone to give him power and never prays to another or even calls another HIS God. These are pure facts, not opinions and theology made up rhetoric biasedness. These are the words from God’s directed Holy Spirit upon the writers of the Scripture, not doctored up to support man’s theology. Man will try their best to try and explain away something so simple and clear, from saying this is not submission, or that Christ did this out of love for the Father like a gift, or something else that helps them ease their minds that the word says that this was “Submission”. Submission isn’t something given as a gift by a God. Submission is given as owed because someone has Authority over you. The Bible words used here have direct meaning and purposefully are pointing out that the Son is under the Father’s rule and ONLY the Father stands as True God and Master over All things, people, and or beings, even the Son. This also put to bed another false Creed theology that tries to say that instead of the Father Being God himself, that he only has a portion of God of him. No scripture interpretation of God herr is ever looked at or translated to mean that this was not The Father alone in this verse. God doesn’t exist inside the Father, he is The Father through and through. Even most Trinity believers don’t know this about their creed. The average Trinity believer believes that the Father is Yahweh, the God, Father and Creator of all things. Most trinity people never look at the Father as to say that he has yet Another portion of the Being called God inside him but this is what the Doctrine of the Trinity really is. If you don’t believe look it up. Don’t go ask your pastor, your family, or friend. Look it up for yourself and know what you say you believe in. You will be surprised.

 

I should have known that other black men would make it their mission to continue to kick Fred Price Jr down!

Price

As most Church news have reported and talked about for a while now, Fred Price Jr stepped down from his position because he made mistakes that he believes disqualified him from being what he was called to be and was doing very well in, and that is being a teacher of the word of God. Fred Price Jr actually did something that most other ministers and positions holders in churches today don’t do. He didn’t hide behind his title and just ignored things. He didn’t continue to lie about things and didn’t make them go away with money. He made a mistake and he paid the price for it with his position, respect and family pain.

Unlike a lot of people, I truly know what goes on in most if not all churches that bring in money, and it isn’t pretty. Beyond the curtain call for Sunday morning lays hatred, jealous acts, sinful backbiting, and flat out plannings for how to gain more money from members by having more services and setting up fake coincidences to make people believe in the audience that the pastor just so happen to be talking about the same subject the choir just song about it, when it was set up like that for weeks. Yes, it’s ugly. It always is ugly because the same people that you work with that cursed you out are the same people going to the church down the street and working at the church. Whatever you see on Sunday mornings aren’t what is going on behind the scenes( I would never mention what churches). I remember when I first was exposed to the truth over and over again in different churches( it wasn’t just one). It almost destroyed me. They say the top two things you don’t want to know is how they make your beef and how the church is truly run. This is very true. So understanding that human nature exists and will always be the source of everything on this earth until the flesh is put away for good is key. Only small churches or denominations like the Jehovah’s Witness have the best setup in place to remove this temptation from the people that run the church. And even then they deal with it on different levels else where. In life, it’s the same. Where you find one sin and point, you find two more against yourself. The very fact that other people especially black men and ministers find it their business to post video’s about it and trying to come up with what they believe the reason is and continue to gossip and put down this man, is a sin itself. The bible actually places you into the same category as some of the most hateful sins in God’s eyes.

bible

Not only are these same people accused of such sins equal to or possibly worse than Fred Price Jr by continuing to gossip about this, but all the people out there that find pleasure and or support them in their actions are all guilty. So people should really be careful trying to bury someone that already took his punishment and stripes like a True Man of God, but they really need to look at themselves in the mirror. These same people smoke, drink, watch porn, look at sister Jones’s butty on a regular basis, fornicate, cheat, Molest or rape either physically or mentally. Somewhere, something stands against these people and instead of trying to make themselves feel better about their failures in their spiritual lives by gossiping they should find a message and lesson of sure encouragement in this tragedy. If this man can step away from all that he had by owning up to his mistakes and seek to become better, where can I apply such grace and mercy in my life or others?

Defining myself without Denominations

diversity

There are so many denominations out there. So many different splits of beliefs. These separations happen from even the smallest differences. Some about baptisms words, some about marriage, some about sexes and leadership roles between man and woman, some about location, money, music, most of all, the theology of Christ and God. This has been the most frustrating part of my search and walk as a Christian. The biggest thing and the most common thing that I see that exist between all denominations is the refusal to accept scripture that flat out says and stands against a theology thought that the particular denomination doesn’t want to except as wrong on their part. If it’s not based on Mormons having to accept that Isaiah over and over again without doubt or confusions tells you that Our God Yahweh has declared that there is no other God nor does he even know of any, it falls back on Catholics that have in their own bible no approval to pray to anyone other than Yahweh through Christ and explicitly warns not to create statues of anything in heaven, earth, or beneath and never to bow down to them. I mean over and over again we see Scripture rip apart denominational belief systems like the Trinity thought that somehow Christ is equal to the Father when 1 Corinthians 15:24 tells you without any doubt that the Father is head and True God over all, even Christ himself. And even in Heaven after Christ returned to heaven to be seated as King, no longer being man( since we try and explain away his statements on earth), stills pointed out that He still had a God even while seated in heaven at his thrown and dominion. A God that would change his name soon. This very right to change the name of Christ as Lord, King, and Savior falls to nobody but his God. The Father has no God.  But Trinity believers refuse this fact and hate the very thought of it. And they really hate trying to explain how John, already being heaven, seeing every spiritual being in heaven still found no person named the Holy Spirit seating in the Spiritual throne room( so can’t say it was invisible because everything would be invisible in the spirit world only by those not there but John was there seeing invisible being already) to the left or right of the Father. While Oneness believers have no problem with the Holy Spirit not being a person they still share the same hatred for 1 Corinthians 15:24 and the very simple issue that Christ did die. His spirit went to Hades, fully conscious and whole just like any other person that would have gone to the heart of the earth. That full being that died and went to the heart of the earth for 3 days and 3 nights was a person that wasn’t God because God can’t die. Ultimately, terms like “why have you forsaken me”, “not my will but your will” clearly support different setups of consciousness which create two different persons…not one. Then comes the end when the Son will submit himself under the Father’s rule. The same person can not submit to himself. You can only submit to someone else, someone that is different from you. On and on I can go breaking down, even more denominations but I think you get the point. Nobody is exempt from this issue. Every single denomination that exists right now has scriptures that flat out deny something they believe in and yet they all will refuse to accept these things when they read them for themselves word for word. Why? For the life of me, I can’t understand the need to support man made theology when the word of God ( his original text) stands against it.

Ten Facts of the foundation of a Church that is found in God’s word, not Theology…

  1. There is but One True God and Father, Yahweh or YHWH who we are to love with all our being and the only one prayer is allowed to.
  2. There is but One begotten Son of God, Yeshua( no made up names have been approved by God) who still being “called” GOD( not god) because he sits on the Throne of God, the Messiah, “Only” mediator,  our High priest and King and the only way to the Father to be given honor and praise who we go through to pray to the Father not to pray to directly.
  3. His Holy Spirit is the power and energy of the Sovereign God given to Man to protect, fuel, and guide them in all things to Christ and ultimately to his Father and God. ( The Holy Spirit has no personal name because it isn’t a person. There has never been one conversation had between the Father or Son with the Holy Spirit)
  4. Baptism should be done as the disciples showed…through the one name under heaven by which you should be saved, Yeshua.
  5. Holiness is a requirement because he said so.
  6. Being not just readers of the word but all believers should be doing what is said for them to do.
  7. Sabbath day should be kept Holy and the true day to attend service.
  8. Pagan symbols (Crosses/statues) Idoles, graven images, and the such should be removed from Churches and the people of God. None of these things can protect you. Totems have no place among God’s people.
  9. Man and Woman are the true source and direction of all Marriage.
  10. The man is the head of Woman, Christ over man, and Yahweh over Christ.

 

Are there more? Yes, these are the basis of any church belief if they put aside man’s theology and depend on the word of God to direct their path. I just wish there was a denomination out there that followed these things. I can find some that follow up 70-80% of these maybe 90% but just like all they refuse simple things over their doctrine vs what the word of God says and this means they place men before God, which isn’t good.

Theology and traditions don’t determine your Salvation.

pole crucifixtion

Tradition and Theology have been taught so long in the churches for over a thousand years that people have forgotten that the scripture and God’s words determine salvation not man. From the very moment that man decided that they knew better than Christ it became so.  Men have always wanted to know more than others and be more than others. It was seen in Christ own disciples John and others. You saw with the Pharisees and those denominations that were given birth from the same mentality. You are taught that everything from the so call Crucifix( which can never be translated in its meaning or word from Starous) to the doctrine of the Trinity and other belief systems come from God. It has brainwashed all Followers of Christ to think that if you don’t believe these things that our Faith in Christ as the Son of God and Messiah is invalid. This type of thought pattern was pushed and forced on the Church from Rome/Jewish Pharisees, all the way down to the Catholic church. Men who thought it was necessary to define God, His son, Holy Spirit and create concepts of beliefs that they came up with but was never stated in scripture. In most cases, the scripture would say something completely different and yet men would not dare to question man in favor of God. Most people today don’t even know or understand that they believe things that are not required in scripture for you to believe in to be saved. They really believe that you can be closer to God in the Church building vs your home, even though the scripture tell you that you are the temple now. They really believe that a silver totem cross around their neck protects them even though the scripture defines this as idolatry. They bow down to images of God and or of his Son even though nobody knows how they look which again creates a false god and causing you to sin according to the Bible’s warning of graven images.  They pray to angels and Saints when there is absolutely no biblical approval or example to do so. They ignore Christ own example of how to pray which involves Exclusive pray to the Father Alone in Christ name. Not even the Son of God is allowed prayer to according to Christ himself and yet today Christians still do so without fail.  Theology and traditions teach you one thing but the actual real words from the original text paint a different story. Theology will force an image of a stake into a pagan Cross to be worshiped and painted on the sides of what man calls the “Houses of God”. And when cornered to show facts, they resort to saying “it really doesn’t matter what he died on” because they know they can’t support it. Well if it doesn’t matter, remove it and focus on Christ. Man will tell you unless you believe in the Trinity you are not of God or saved. Yet Christ stated the very foundation of his church is founded on understanding that he the Messiah and son of the Living God, not that he is God himself, not that he is a trinity and not any other concept created by man. No scripture places such a burden on you as to require you to come up with or believe in a theological concept created by men who today still say that can’t really be explained. Christianity has become so overwhelmingly based on the theology of men and not what God’s words say that we can no longer tell the difference between what is needed for salvation and what is needed for man’s acceptance. If you are a sound minded person that just doesn’t accept anything that is given to you just because they told you and you read for yourself you will one day see the issues I have with the current Churches and direction of the Faith. The need for Christ and his Father’s directions, not man, is really in need of a reboot for our Christians.

 

Why Jehovah Witnesss confuse people 



  

 First off, this is not a attack against Jehovah witnesses. In fact I really respect them. Of all the denominations out there I believe they have the most convictions about their faith and would be among the very few people on earth that would truly die for their belief. Unlike most Christian denominations out there they still stand by what is right in scripture. They don’t break and bend for what’s popular in homosexuals acts and they don’t accept adulterers and fornicators, allowed among their members without exile. I also love their peace and absolute oneness in their faith and spreading the gospel around the world(truly). However, this absolute conviction comes with a price. They blindly follow without questioning things that aren’t supported in scripture simply because they ruling body said so. Example of such thing above is found in their study journals. This particular article is about Melchizedek. We all know the scripture. The scripture that explicitly defines Melchizedek as a forerunner of Christ, while some say Yahweh himself. Hebrews 7:3 without doubt describes this man as one who had no mother, no father, no beginning or end of days and being made like the Son of God.  The Hebrew/greek language uses the term “Like” the Son of God to mean, in most cases, that he was. So right away, those who know the Jehovah’s witnesses, know that they can’t use these terms or accept this because it’s too many attributes of Jehovah being applied to Christ. So what is there statement about the scripture(highlighted in yellow)? Well basically…”IT DIDNT SAY THAT!” That’s right! What you just read, that is clear as day, the best thing they can come up with is the total opposite of what is being said in scripture. In fact, there is no scripture that counters these statements not even hints to these statements being false or misunderstood. Melchizedek facts are that he had no mother or father….so how can he be born? Yet they say he was born. Then it says he had no beginning of day or end of days, which they define to mean that he died???How the blue moon do you get out of this scripture that this man died? It is absolutely crazy and downright insane for someone of a educated mind to come up to this conclusion, if you believe in scripture. To know that Jehovah’s Witness go this far to avoid statments that are spelled out this clear in scripture, simply because they know if they accept it, it means they are wrong about some facts that they have taught about Christ and God, is flat out scary.  And again, this isn’t the only scripture they have done this on. The sad thing here, is that I know they see things like this but because they don’t want to be exiled they won’t tell others or question something they know is off. But to be fair, no other denomination does this either, they just don’t follow scripture about exiling members like the Witnesses do. I guess my issue with this is that they have so many other things in place that show they are being steadfast about his word and study, why can’t this be more consistent?
