In the name of Christ Explain your contradictions.
“Did not even Satan marvelously transform himself into an angel of light? Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works” (2 Corinthians 11:14-15 MKJV).
Do you not claim to be yourself an angel of light? Apparently, you are to be the only man who follows Christ (or do you) you never really admit to be a follower of Christ. Your vague intellect, is quite frankly teaching falsely. You do not, in any way know how to defend your position, nor offer loving discipleship to another. All you do is create division in the Body of Christ. For a doctrine to be true you must have supporting verses, do you not? If not, we could beat our children, murder our friends and commit unmeasurable sin all in the name of a few verses. Your doctrine has no substance, other than your personal revelation.
Therefore, refer to your selected verse above. I was very disheartened by your teaching this morning, it made me want to walk away from my faith. Living a right life worthy of the bride of Christ in this world is hard, it has no glory nor does it make me proud. I understand the minute I become self-righteous in my attitude toward others, is the moment I have lost the hold on Christ and exalt myself above Him. You sir need to:
Humble Yourself Before God! -- Romans 3:9-18 - supported James 4:10, Isaiah 5:15, Luke 14:11
9 What then? Are we better than they? Not at all. For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin.
10 As it is written:
“There is none righteous, no, not one;
11 There is none who understands;
There is none who seeks after God.
12 They have all turned aside;
They have together become unprofitable;
There is none who does good, no, not one.”
13 “Their throat is an open tomb;
With their tongues they have practiced deceit”;
“The poison of asps is under their lips”;
14 “Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.”
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways;
17 And the way of peace they have not known.”
18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
--- You sir, have exalted yourself above the word of God. You are adding to its teaching. Repent of your delusion, humble yourself accordingly. ----
Believe that Christ is Propitiation for our Sin -- Romans 3:21-26 - supported 1 John 2:2, Hebrews 2:17, 1 John 4:10
21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, 26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
Rejoicing in Christ is not Pride - it is Respect! -- Romans 5:6-11
6 For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11 And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
--- You sir have no respect for Christ. To declare and judge everyone who does not accept your vague doctrine as a sinner and false teacher, assumes you have the authority to do so. Consider the consequences of your attitude and actions you carry forward in the name of Christ! ---
Get on Your Knees before God and Confess He is Lord not you! -- Romans 10:9-10 supported Matthew 10:32, 1 Timothy 6:12, Hebrews 4:14
5 For Moses writes about the righteousness which is of the law, “The man who does those things shall live by them.” 6 But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, “Do not say in your heart, 'Who will ascend into heaven?'” (that is, to bring Christ down from above) 7 or, “'Who will descend into the abyss?'”(that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). 8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
-- Good Sir, you need to confess of your own false teaching. You claim I teach falsely, while using the word of God. My teaching is sound, just as Christ taught it to be so. I alone have no authority, but only Christ who speaks through me as it is His word I share with boldness.--
Proverbs 26:4-5 - If you are not the fool referred to, then you are full of pride. Apart from Christ, we are all fools - look up the definition and receive a measure of humility.
My faith in Christ is reinforced and even stronger now, thank-you. I pray you will repent and turn from your false teachings that weaken people's faith in Christ, confess that Jesus is Lord and not yourself. Humble yourself in the sight of God, and stop manipulating the word of God to give understanding your personal revelation.
