Christian Science: Missing Jesus 2

Christian Science: another cult?Christian Science: Missing Jesus

Christianity and Christian Science cult are two utterly different religions, in origin, beliefs, practice, and purpose.   It is but another of the numerous humanly-invented cults. The tragedy is that Christian Scientist do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ — who does all the healing in His Name.

Christian Science

Had Mrs. Eddy’s book on the subject, Science and Health, no human author, but owed its origin to divine revelation, why had it to be rewritten, altered, taken from, and added to, again and again, as was the case?

In 1885, she even employed the Rev. James Henry Wiggin, a retired Unitarian minister, to edit her book, eliminating the more glaring absurdities. He himself said that his chief concern was ‘to keep Mrs. Eddy from making herself ridiculous. To ask people to regard such a book as divinely revealed, even apart from its contents, is demanding more than reason will permit. 

Christian Science

She did not hesitate to advertise the first edition as a book that ‘affords an opportunity to acquire a profession by which you can accumulate a fortune. She charged her students $300 per person, which was a lot then,  to enroll in an eight year course (if they ever finished it, with all fees being non-returnable.) There is a charge for their spiritual healing and services. This kind of financing insured that this cult would take on a life of its own.

Her teachings are not based on the Bible. Her one aim was to adapt the Bible to suit her teachings.  We have only her word for it that God revealed to her what she wrote. 

 For Christian Science salvation from sin is accomplished when one ceases to sin, or when one stops believing that there is such a thing as sin. In either event, the death of Christ has nothing to do with salvation; if Christ had never existed, it would have made no real difference (pg. 212.)

 According to Christian Scientist, human ills have no real existence, and are to be cured not by medicine but by mind-control: a process of ‘right-thinking.  The “Scientists” have been legally forced, by court orders, not to prevent members from seeking medical treatment for their families. 

Christian Scientists believe that we have no separate mind from God. Man is not mortal, but is a reflection of God . In other words, they teach pantheism. Pantheism comes from Greek roots meaning “belief that everything is a god.

Mrs. Eddy’s God is not the Christian God who created heaven and earth,  who is essentially personal. She defines God as the ‘Principle of divine metaphysics.

Missing the Relationship with Jesus

Most Christians would miss their relationship with Jesus if they joined the Christian Science Church. Jesus is the One who heals: there would be no more healing! Jesus is the One who delivers away evil spirits. There would be no more deliverance!

“Mormons say in their presentation that Jesus is our “eldest brother.”  Christians believe that Jesus is our Lord and God and that He is co-equal and co-eternal with the Father. Mormons believe, in contrast, that the Father created Jesus and so they don’t pray to Jesus. 

Paul can ask Christ to comfort us, then why shouldn’t we pray to Jesus? Why would I join a Church that discourages praying to the eternal, all-powerful, and one and only Son of God?              John 1:18

Paul said, “May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father . . . comfort your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word,”                                                                                    2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

 

Christian Science: Missing Jesus This is huge news! After years of being involved (and controlled by the church), Tom Cruise, 55, is reportedly quitting Scientology for good and it’s all for daughter Suri Cruise, 12! After a heartbreaking phone call with Suri, the actor allegedly realized he’s missing out on all of her milestones and the only way to get back into the young girl’s life is to cut ties with the church.

Christian Science: Missing Jesus

The Mouse’s Search for the Cat

The unproved assumption of this very common mountain analogy is that the roads go up, not down; that man makes the roads, not God; that religion is man’s search for God, not God’s search for man.  C. S. Lewis says this sounds like “the mouse’s search for the cat”.

Christian ScienceChristianity is not a system of man’s search for God but a story of God’s search for man.  True religion is not like a cloud of incense wafting up from special spirits into the nostrils of a waiting God, but like a Father’s hand thrust downward to rescue the fallen. 

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE CULTURE AND FAMILY

There is a lot of good in Christian Science. Christians do not come with a spirit of criticism or superiority. We can appreciate  teaching that children obey their parents, including many aspects of morality,opposing fornication and other forms of immorality. 

Christians do not want to destroy the Christian Science way of life and replace it with Christian customs and Christian way of life. We realize that there may be a loss of one’s relationship with their family.

In the end, one’s conversion will benefit the whole family because of the gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance available. A prayer of deliverance (of evil spirits) will leave a Christian Science member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple will bring about 80% healing, and the remaining healing will come about with a convert’s prayer of praise and thanksgiving. This healing comes through the Name of Jesus Christ and no other god or deity. This should be proof enough of the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.

The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

Is the BIBLE true? 2

THE FALSE PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION

Here is a passage that comes from a BIBLE ABOUT RELIGION:

 “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and vain deceit, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2:8

Let’s analyze this more closely:

 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception [pseudo-intellectual babble], according to the tradition [and musings] of mere men, following the elementary principles of this world, rather than following [the truth—the teachings of] Christ.                                                                  Colossians 2:8

So, one should not accept philosophy of mere speculation and imagination, but of the modest, laborious investigation of facts.

Vain Deceit is, that which is vain and empty, and has no solid foundation, and even deceitful and delusional.

Christianity is not a philosophy, but a relationship with God in Christ TODAYnot knowledge of abstract principles.

How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus.

THE FOOLISH UNPREPARED 2

  PARABLE OF THE WISE AND FOOLISH BRIDES MAIDS                                                                                       end times                                                                                Matthew 25.1-13 (AO32)

Why did the five “wise” bridesmaids not share their extra oil with the “unwise” or “foolish” ones whose lamps began to flicker around midnight? It would have been the charitable thing to do.

The story makes it clear that some of the bridesmaids were ill-prepared to participate in the wedding rituals.

The bridegroom was a bit late. The foolish bridesmaids did not have enough oil to keep their lamps burning, so they missed out. Lesson learned.

If I were to improve the story, I would have created another “teaching moment”. I would have had the good ones actually give away some of their oil to the foolish ones to teach about the virtue of “sharing”. It would have achieved two lessons with one story — one about preparedness and the other about generosity.

THE END TIMESend times

The parable is a metaphor for the end-times, that time we find out our final destination.

We are the bridesmaids in the story. We are those who want to take part in the wedding feast that is heaven.

God is the bridegroom who opens heaven’s door, to those who have prepared wisely and well.

It is a time we are each on our own. We are either prepared for heaven, or we are not. It is a binary decision, with only two possibilities.

By that time, it is too late for last minute fixes or changes. The earthly pilgrimage is ended. We are judged according to our particular situation then, the situation that we have made for ourselves.

A sudden offer of oil from the wise bridesmaids, neither, no matter its abundance or how generously given, is any longer of any benefit to the foolish unprepared.

–Deacon Ricardo Santiago, Notre Dame Cathedral, Ottawa Canada

5 REASONS THE END TIMES ARE UPON US NOWend times

As tensions around the world have increased, the belief that the prophecies in the Bible are talking about modern day is increasingly common. Here’s why.

  1. Chaos in the Middle East: There seems to be an endless stream of tension between Israel and the surrounding countries without any end in sight.The Middle East seems to remain the ongoing focal point of world conflict.end times
  2. The Islamic State: The battles described in scripture are slated to take place in the Middle East.  A small majority of Islamic radicals like ISIS are causing the major problems.
  3. Israel’s Re-emergence: There was a 1948 return of Israel, after a Jewish state was absent from the map for more than 19,000 years as predicted biblically “For I will take you out of the nations; I will father you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land.” Ezekiel 36:24
  4. Shifts in Morality: The lawlessness of our culture is increasing and in turn creating a hostile atmosphere. As our culture has secularized and paganized, Christianity, the Church, and Christians have come under increasing attack as “intolerant bigots.” Jesus and Paul prophesied that the destruction of society is a sign that the end times are near. “Most people’s love will grow cold” Matthew 24:12end times
  5. Spread of the Gospel: The Christian gospel continues to be spread in even the most remote and hard-to-reach geographic places throughout the world. “This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14

WISDOM AND LOVEwisdom love

As we believe that we are each made in the image and likeness of God. And with God in us are wisdom and strength that make us ready and prepared for favorable judgment at the end of our days on earth.

wisdom love

But this does not necessarily mean that today, right now, we are all ready to enter into the eternal kingdom of God in heaven.

We are born pristine, with the spirit of God alive and well within us! From our birth, God himself has readied us to join him in heaven.

However, human pride, carelessness, and weakness can lead to bad choices in life, wrong decisions that wipe out our readiness for the kingdom

Thanks to God’s abounding mercy and forgiveness, that readiness for heaven can be restored. But it takes wisdom to discern God’s will and humility to hope in God’s forgiveness.

In the same way that God is love, God is also wisdom itself. Therefore, when one seeks God and welcomes him, one is filled with wisdom and love.

  • “For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.” Proverbs 2:6
  • “With God are wisdom and strength; he has counsel and understanding.” Job 12-13

Psalm 63 is a beautiful prayer for one who seeks God and yearns for the love wisdom that God brings:

“O God, you are my God, for you I long; for you my soul is thirsting. My body pines for you like a dry, weary land without water. “My soul clings to you; your right hand holds me fast.”

May this yearning always be in our heart so that we are ever ready to meet our God at any hour, on any day.

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

end times

An Intensifying Period of Suffering is now upon the World.

“I love you. 

So many people are too busy, and too preoccupied with things of the world, to hear My voice.  They are fooling themselves in thinking and in believing that they are in charge of their lives and that they are in control of their personal advancement.

In their pride they refuse to submit to anyone, even to Me.  They have cut off themselves from Me and they lead many astray because they are in league with the devil and they follow his plans. 

One day they are going to realize they have messed up lives.  I wish to impress on you all, that without Me you can do nothing. 

To bring all people to their senses an intensifying period of suffering is now upon the world I am offering everyone the gift of conversion and I am calling you all to find Me in the desert within yourselves.

Become spiritually minded persons.  Come out of your shell, reach out to Me in faith, and I am going to help you find your true self in Me.  I love you.”

The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:

Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.

Hare Krishna God? 2

A HARE KRISHNA GOD?

Krishna is the so called God, or “Supreme Personality Universe” Followers go into the prayer room, bowing down to false idols, as there are many idols on a platform.  The view of God is basically pantheistic, meaning that they believe God is all and in all. For Hare Krishnas, God is everything and everything is God. 

Hare Krishna

They will always believe themselves above all other, on a special pedestal thinking they are the only ones destined for Godhead and everyone else are doomed.

The “monotheism” of Hare Krishna is a little muddled, however, as Sri Krishna has an “eternal consort” named Srimati Radharani; together, Krishna and Radharani comprise the “Divine Couple.”

The belief in reincarnation is explained as one’s works, good and bad, are measured and judged after death. If one’s deeds are good, he continues to be reincarnated into higher life forms; if his deeds are bad, he will become a lower life form. One can cease the cycles of rebirth and realize his oneness with Krishna.

The goal of the Hare Krishna is to reach “Krishna consciousness,” a kind of enlightenment, so that man is ultimately identical to God. This is an old lie dating back to the Garden of Eden: “You will be as God” (Genesis 3:5).

They believe that by spiritual austerity, by chanting, by rising early, and purifying yourself, that gradually you can evolve to a platform where you are completely free from material desire. “I don’t believe that anybody’s come to that platform,” observed one follower. In fact, you have feelings of guilt and remorse that you can’t always be on this platform, and psychologically you start to berate yourself.

They get you to the point where they don’t have any self-worth anymore. The only thing that is worth is serving Krishna (god): being a robot for God.

Cult Phenomenon

The cult phenomenon always come all wrapped in a nice looking ‘package’ and sweetened with one form of bait or another only to sap one’s essence as well as their pocketbook. The purpose of all these cults  is to defuse and distract. For those living in the temple, it is a true cult. (If you do not live in the Temple, you are considered a Householder and can live your life as you see fit, which is a vast difference.)

Here is a summary of the main criticism of Hare Krishna (HK) or ISKCON:

1/. Disengaged

 Hare Krishna or ISKCON followers become disengaged with social issues. This is unhealthy. One must engage in society and interact with all levels of society to help serve others who are suffering in our world.

2/. Isolation

Sooner or later they will encourage members/devotees to disassociate with ‘outsiders’. This includes members of your own family. Members are  completely wrapped up in HK, in every spare moment; all under the guise of ‘Good Association’. This is NOT healthy and this should ring alarm bells.

Here is a typical lesson: “Don’t try to love people individually; it’s like trying to water the leaves on a tree. If you want to water the leaves of a tree you water the root. You don’t water each individual leaf. Instead, love Krishna. He’s the root. When you love Krishna, automatically you will love everybody.” You see how it all logically fits together, and how this can be real deceptive?

3/. Sleep deprivation

Sleep and sufficient amounts of it is healthy! Sleep deprivation is a classic mind control technique.  They are allowed only 6 hours of sleep a night.  They kept you weak and overworked, then they created a semi-hypnotic state with the song and dancing and then the chanting.  The argument that one hour sleep taken at different times is equivalent to two hours is not scientifically proven at all.

4/. Insulated information

Organizers telling you Do not listen to any other information other than what we are telling you and only absorb our material.” This should ring alarm bells.

5/. Austerity & Charity

They say in their writing that 50% of devotee’s wages should go to them. Who can afford that level of tithing. Nothing is allowed to get funded to a high position from grass roots level; unless it has been first instigated by organizers.  In the end the Hare Krishna cult is actually a brainwashing, money making machine for a few who profit from creating a prophet. The hidden agenda is to pour in world resources and money for India and to prosper its “gurus”.

6/. Positioning

They tend to position themselves in inner city locations, where there are lots of young influential people and/or drug and alcoholism dependent people. These people need a way to escape materialistic society, or escape religion.

7/. Hooks

The Hare Krishnas come with a convenient solution to this materialistic mess with lots of smiles, yummy grub and with a bit of music and dancing thrown in: come and party with the HKs!

Not to mention their hypnotic mantra, which gives you a nice ‘loved up’ feeling to act as pain killer against modern day living all under the guise of transcendental spirituality?

8/. Fishing

They target students and addicts, anyone needing someone to lean on; they attract the most lost, confused, and needy people. Many of these people could not function in the real world and were attracted to this group as a way to hide from reality. They latch on to people who show a tad of enthusiasm. They tempt you with ‘free’ books to mind control you.

For sure they are de-stressed; but they are completely pacified. Just like in Huxley’s “Brave New World” scenario. Happy pacified servants of the system along with their finances!

They also attract people who like to feed off others and they are attracted to large groups of people to feed from.

Historically

In the late sixties during the hippie days, it was like a love community; the idea was just to go out on the street and just to sing and dance and chant and to distribute the literature, ask for donations, give out food, love-everyone kind of thing, and family type of atmosphere.

That changed very drastically. The community gets this absolute order from the guru, which is as good as having an order from God, to go out and sell the books in order to raise money. They worked on the principal that the end justifies the means, which opens up a whole host of questionable money making techniques.

Then, in 1977, Swami Bhaktivedanta dies and eleven of his most high-ranking disciples take over. They want all the people in their zones to be people who accept them as pure and perfect gurus. Opps! We now observe a lot of in-house bickering and jealousy.

Reincarnation

You’ve died! Now what?

What happens to your life after death?The belief in reincarnation is explained as one’s works: if one’s deeds are good, one continues to be reincarnated into higher life forms; if his deeds are bad, one will become a lower life form. One can cease the cycles of rebirth and realize his oneness with Krishna, the godhead.

The goal of the Hare Krishna is to reach “Krishna consciousness,” a kind of enlightenment, so that man is ultimately identical to God.

HARE KRISHNA REINCARNATION

Come Again?

Reincarnation is either true or it is not true. It cannot be that for one person it is true and for another it is false. 

Hindus believe that there is no “evil,” apart from the failings of human conscience, and Satan doesn’t exist. Nowhere does one mention the possibility of repentance or forgiveness.

Believers in reincarnation are left only with tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow, a constant returning until they “complete their life plans.”  It tends toward moral laxity because no matter how bad someone is in this life, he gets another shot… and another… and another!  If people have many different lives to lead, then they can play around a lot more and be a lot more experimental about how they will conduct themselves morally.

The human physical brain has no memory of past lives. We don’t have anything to improve on in that first life because we haven’t had a life yet….have we?  I can learn from my mistakes only if I remember them, but there is no continuity of memory.

Is Reincarnation Biblical?

Jesus taught about Judgment and Heaven and Hell. The Bible clearly teaches that righteous people will NEVER suffer torment because they have a confident hope of IMMORTALITY, and that the wicked will suffer in a fire that NEVER goes out: “(He) will gather the wheat into His garner; but the chaff He will burn with fire unquenchable.”                                                                                         Luke 3:17

When “the single course of our earthly life” is completed, we shall not return to other earthly lives: “It is appointed for men to die once.” There is no “reincarnation” after death in the Bible:  “Just as it is appointed that human beings die once, and after this the judgment.”                                                                                               Hebrews 9:27 

Sikhism Reincarnation Biblical

It is also contradicted by our Lord Himself: “You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world.”                                                                                                                                            John 8:23

“Be ready, for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect” Matthew 24:44 loses not only its effectiveness, but its essential meaning.

Is there a particular reason you think God needs to create us to preexist before our lives here on earth?  If every soul had once pre-existed with God, then Christ wasn’t anything special to have come from God. 

What divine  authority on reincarnation claims this? That could just be made up:”I don’t like the idea of Hell so I’m going to choose not to believe in it.” What they see is truly in the eyes of the beholder.

A Distinctive Human Soul

Human Soul Sikhism

It fails to make the essential distinction between men and animals. Human beings alone are created in the image and likeness of God; and therefore, possess rational and spiritual souls: a human person is a body/soul composite.

Consider a person alleged to have reincarnated; would the person have been himself or someone else, or partly himself and partly someone else? Of course, either alternative is illogical. A human person is a UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL BEING with a spiritual soul and a material body.

It is the distinctive human soul that is the foundation of his unique dignity. It is the reason why we humans possess “certain unalienable rights” as our founding fathers rightly said in our Declaration of Independence. Reincarnation either reduces men to the level of animals, or raises animals to the level of humans with “rights” with spiritual souls. Does that make any sense? I believe it only to be wishful thinking.

Reincarnation only signals “the desire to escape the consequences of one’s life choices and modern stress.” The belief in reincarnation expresses the human “inexpressible longing to live forever.”

Why is this Extremely Dangerous?

How opposite is this to our Lord’s teaching in the form of his words to the “rich man”, when God said to him, “Fool! This night your soul is required of you… So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”                                                                       Luke 12:20-21

What if you descend into what you might call hell: a descent into each person’s customized human misery, ignorance, and darkness of not-knowing, which would seem like a miserable eternity.

PASCAL’S WAGER

Hare Krishna Pascal's Wager

Pascal’s Wager appeals to the instinct for self-preservation, the desire to be happy and not unhappy. Suppose a winning sweepstakes ticket is worth a million dollars, and there are only two tickets left. You know that one of them is the winning ticket, while the other is worth nothing, and you are allowed to buy only one of the two tickets, at random. Would it be a good investment to spend a dollar on the good chance of winning a million?

It is therefore the height of folly not to “bet” on HEAVEN or possible HELL, even if you have no certainty, no proof, no guarantee that your bet will win. Reincarnation is a terrible bet. It gives you no chance of winning the prize: HEAVEN. Heaven is our true destiny, but the choice is ours.

We are like ships that need to get home. The ship of life is moving along the waters of time, and there comes a point of no return, when our fuel runs out, when it is too late. And there comes a time when there are no more tomorrows. Saying “maybe” and “perhaps tomorrow” cannot continue indefinitely because life does not continue indefinitely.

You are already committed [embarked]. We are not outside observers of life, but participants. You must wager. There is no choice.

Let us weigh up the gain and the loss involved in calling heads that HEAVEN exists. Let us assess the two cases: if you win, you win everything: if you lose, you lose nothing. Do not hesitate then: wager that HEAVEN does exist.

You should be much more afraid of being mistaken and then finding out that Christianity is true than of being mistaken in believing it to be true. If you believe too much, you neither win nor lose eternal happiness. But if you believe too little, you risk losing everything.

Yahweh 

Is this an old lie dating back to the Garden of Eden: “You will be as God”? Genesis 3:5

They are taught to believe that the Bible is the Word of God: their guru taught them “Yes, Bible is Word of God, Bhagavad Gita is also Word of God.” The Bible says we should not bow down to idols. Yahweh alone is the God that created the heavens, and all the gods of the nations are idols. “For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.” Psalm 96:5

The Second Commandment says, “Thou shalt not create any graven images or bow down and worship them.” Exodus 20:3-5.  But how can that be, since the God of the Bible disassociates himself from any graven image, and they worship God in a graven image? It’s completely incompatible.

Since only pure devotees are saved, nobody has been saved except for them. They’re the only pure devotees! Is that the mercy of God that only five people in the line of gurus out of billions get saved? Does that sound logical?”

Deprogramming

Deprogramming is successful once followers have admitted they have been deceived by their leaders and the group, which, with sufficient coercion, can invariably be accomplished. Even after a person has thus “broken,” the deprogrammers explain, he or she will “float.” That is, any contact with other members of the cult may trigger a return to the group. Such floating, they warn their clients, can continue for years.

It’s hard to explain the depth of seriousness that is to someone who believes HK. With the grace of God and prayers all is possible.

The Mouse’s Search for the Cat

The unproved assumption of this very common mountain analogy is that the roads go up, not down; that man makes the roads, not God; that religion is man’s search for God, not God’s search for man.  C. S. Lewis says this sounds like “the mouse’s search for the cat”.

Hare Krishna

Christianity is not a system of man’s search for God but a story of God’s search for man.  True religion is not like a cloud of incense wafting up from special spirits into the nostrils of a waiting God, but like a Father’s hand thrust downward to rescue the fallen.

HARE KRISHNA CULTURE AND FAMILY

 In the end, one’s conversion will benefit the whole family because of the gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance available. A prayer of deliverance (of evil spirits) will leave a Hare Krishna member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple will bring about 80% healing, and the remaining healing will come about with a convert’s prayer of praise and thanksgiving. This healing comes through the Name of Jesus Christ and no other god or deity. This should be proof enough of the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

Is the BIBLE true? 2

THE FALSE PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION

Here is a passage that comes from a BIBLE ABOUT RELIGION:

 “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and vain deceit, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2:8

Let’s analyze this more closely:

 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception [pseudo-intellectual babble], according to the tradition [and musings] of mere men, following the elementary principles of this world, rather than following [the truth—the teachings of] Christ.                                                                  Colossians 2:8

So, one should not accept philosophy of mere speculation and imagination, but of the modest, laborious investigation of facts.

Vain Deceit is, that which is vain and empty, and has no solid foundation, and even deceitful and delusional.

Christianity is not a philosophy, but a relationship with God in Christ TODAYnot knowledge of abstract principles.

How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus.

NEW AGE ENERGY FORCE 2

God is an impersonal “energy force”?

NEW AGE ENERGY FORCE

YOU’VE DIED! NOW WHAT?

What happens to your life after death? New Age defines GOD only as an “energy force”. New Age Followers have not addressed this important question about the Creator. It is really not a religion that connects with one’s personal Creator. Would you not meet wish to meet your Creator one day?

Defining ‘New Age’ is  a difficult thing to do, since it means so many different things to different people.  

new age belief

They teach you false descriptions and definitions of who and/or what God is. Most New Age teachings deny the truth that Satan exists. Most New Age teachings deny that Hell exists, and so they leave you with a false sense of security — feeling as though anything you do is “alright” as we’re all here just learning lessons, and we all wind up in the end, in the same paradise — back home with God, as we “evolve” our way back to our “Godhood.”

The reincarnation teachings are especially hazardous as people are lead to believe that we all live thousands of life-times, and we’ll get a thousand chances to “get it right.”

Your feelings are suppose to be your wisest guide in all matters. The Law of Attraction teachings cause people to act in reckless ways, believing they’re “safe” as long as they’re feeling good. 

New Age is narcissistic: YOU ARE AN UNLIMITED SUPER-BEING: “There is nothing that you cannot have, or do, or be”… Human potential is limitless… “Conceive it and you can achieve it.

Channeling is actually dangerous since God forbids us to seek out or invoke unknown spirits that speak through mediums, “Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.” Leviticus 19:31

Come Again?

Reincarnation is either true or it is not true. It cannot be that for one person it is true and for another it is false. 

Hindus believe that there is no “evil,” apart from the failings of human conscience, and Satan doesn’t exist. Nowhere does one mention the possibility of repentance or forgiveness.

Believers in reincarnation are left only with tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow, a constant returning until they “complete their life plans.”  It tends toward moral laxity because no matter how bad someone is in this life, he gets another shot… and another… and another!  If people have many different lives to lead, then they can play around a lot more and be a lot more experimental about how they will conduct themselves morally.

The human physical brain has no memory of past lives. We don’t have anything to improve on in that first life because we haven’t had a life yet….have we?  I can learn from my mistakes only if I remember them, but there is no continuity of memory.

Is Reincarnation Biblical?

Jesus taught about Judgment and Heaven and Hell. The Bible clearly teaches that righteous people will NEVER suffer torment because they have a confident hope of IMMORTALITY, and that the wicked will suffer in a fire that NEVER goes out: “(He) will gather the wheat into His garner; but the chaff He will burn with fire unquenchable.”                                                                                         Luke 3:17

When “the single course of our earthly life” is completed, we shall not return to other earthly lives: “It is appointed for men to die once.” There is no “reincarnation” after death in the Bible:  “Just as it is appointed that human beings die once, and after this the judgment.”                                                                                               Hebrews 9:27 

Sikhism Reincarnation Biblical

It is also contradicted by our Lord Himself: “You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world.”                                                                                                                                            John 8:23:

“Be ready, for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect” Matthew 24:44 loses not only its effectiveness, but its essential meaning.

Is there a particular reason you think God needs to create us to preexist before our lives here on earth?  If every soul had once pre-existed with God, then Christ wasn’t anything special to have come from God. 

What divine  authority on reincarnation claims this? That could just be made up:”I don’t like the idea of Hell so I’m going to choose not to believe in it.” What they see is truly in the eyes of the beholder.

A Distinctive Human SoulHuman Soul Sikhism

It fails to make the essential distinction between men and animals. Human beings alone are created in the image and likeness of God; and therefore, possess rational and spiritual souls: a human person is a body/soul composite.

Consider a person alleged to have reincarnated; would the person have been himself or someone else, or partly himself and partly someone else? Of course, either alternative is illogical. A human person is a UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL BEING with a spiritual soul and a material body.

It is the distinctive human soul that is the foundation of his unique dignity. It is the reason why we humans possess “certain unalienable rights” as our founding fathers rightly said in our Declaration of Independence. Reincarnation either reduces men to the level of animals, or raises animals to the level of humans with “rights” with spiritual souls. Does that make any sense? I believe it only to be wishful thinking.

Reincarnation only signals “the desire to escape the consequences of one’s life choices and modern stress.” The belief in reincarnation expresses the human “inexpressible longing to live forever.”

Why is this Extremely Dangerous?

How opposite is this to our Lord’s teaching in the form of his words to the “rich man”, when God said to him, “Fool! This night your soul is required of you… So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”                                                                       Luke 12:20-21

What if you descend into what you might call hell: a descent into each person’s customized human misery, ignorance, and darkness of not-knowing, which would seem like a miserable eternity.

NEW AGE PASCAL'S WAGER

Pascal’s Wager appeals to the instinct for self-preservation, the desire to be happy and not unhappy. Suppose a winning sweepstakes ticket is worth a million dollars, and there are only two tickets left. You know that one of them is the winning ticket, while the other is worth nothing, and you are allowed to buy only one of the two tickets, at random. Would it be a good investment to spend a dollar on the good chance of winning a million?

It is therefore the height of folly not to “bet” on HEAVEN or possible HELL, even if you have no certainty, no proof, no guarantee that your bet will win. Reincarnation is a terrible bet. It gives you no chance of winning the prize: HEAVEN. Heaven is our true destiny, but the choice is ours.

We are like ships that need to get home. The ship of life is moving along the waters of time, and there comes a point of no return, when our fuel runs out, when it is too late. And there comes a time when there are no more tomorrows. Saying “maybe” and “perhaps tomorrow” cannot continue indefinitely because life does not continue indefinitely.

You are already committed [embarked]. We are not outside observers of life, but participants. You must wager. There is no choice.

Let us weigh up the gain and the loss involved in calling heads that HEAVEN exists. Let us assess the two cases: if you win, you win everything: if you lose, you lose nothing. Do not hesitate then: wager that HEAVEN does exist.

You should be much more afraid of being mistaken and then finding out that Christianity is true than of being mistaken in believing it to be true. If you believe too much, you neither win nor lose eternal happiness. But if you believe too little, you risk losing everything.

AN INTERESTING CONVERSION STORYNew Age conversion story

What blew me away was the fact that we can know Jesus is real personally because His Spirit enters into ours when we believe on Him and are saved.  We receive an indwelling of the Holy Spirit who affirms and confirms to us the person of Jesus.  A personal presence where there was once nothing in us.  It’s more spiritual than anything I had every practiced or been involved with in my entire life (in New Age).

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

new age ENERGY FORCE

One Day for Me is like a Thousand Years. 

“I embrace you. You belong to Me by a special bond. What joy to be united in prayer every day. 

My heart aches to know that although many have received great gifts from Me, they no longer believe in Me. They have rejected Me saying that I am not relevant in these modern times. I am, they say, ancient and should be discarded for something like the New Age Movement and the new religions that are fast coming up. Some even think that worshiping the devil is the best.

How deluded people can become. I am not ancient. I am eternal and more modern that any New Age people.  Even though I lived two thousand years ago, that is nothing for Me for I am divine.  I am eternal and one day for Me is like a thousand years. 

Those who abandon Me do so because they want to live a life of sin. They want to be their own gods. They will be rudely awakened one day when it is too late.

My people, peace and joy can only be found in Me. I am your only Savior.  I hold in My hands the key of life and death. I love you and you can be My friends if you follow the commandments. It is in this way that you show your love for Me.

Do not give Satan a place in your life for he will take everything you have, even life itself. 

Let Me be your close friend. I bless you.”

The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:

Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.

JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES TEACHINGS 2

TEACHINGS OF JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES

Jehovah’s Witnesses are taught that all other Christian churches represent renegade Christendom, and only the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society (which is the spiritual leadership of the Jehovah’s Witnesses) can be trusted.

AUTHORITY

The Bible describes how the apostles could pass on their authority to future bishops: Let another person take over his work.”Act 1:20 Why should we believe

(1) that the Catholic Church lost its God-given authority to interpret Scripture and proclaim doctrine and

(2) that the Watchtower is God’s official organization on Earth with his authority to interpret Scripture? How does one know that Jesus has given the Watchtower special authority?                                                         You Will Know Them by Their Fruits                                 Matthew 7:16

Why did Watchtower teach the following?

  1. Taught that the world would come to an end in 1914.[6]
  2. Said this was a miscalculation and the world would actually end in 1915.[7]
  3. Said the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob would be resurrected when the world would end in 1925.[8]
  4. Strongly hinted that the end of the world would come in 1975.[9]

Jehovah witness deceptionIn 1995 stopped printing the following message about the end of the world in its magazine Awake!: “[T]his magazine builds confidence in the Creator’s promise of a peaceful and secure world before the generation that saw the events of 1914 passes away.”Deuteronomy 18:22 states that a person is not a prophet if he makes a prediction that fails to come to pass.

If God were really guiding the Watchtower, then why would he allow his “spirit-led” organization to lead so many people into error about the end of the world? The simplest answer to these questions is that men, not God, guide the Watchtower, and so it should not be trusted with our eternal salvation.

6.  “We see no reason for changing the figures nor could we change them if we would. They are, we believe, God’s dates, not ours. But bear in mind that the end of 1914 is not the date for the beginning, but for the end of the time of trouble.” Zion’s Watch Tower (July 15 1894) p.226. Over time the Watchtower started teaching that the world began to end in 1914, not that it was going to end in 1914 (even though this contradicts the Watchtower’s assertion that 1914 was not the beginning of anything but the end).

Jehovah's Witnesses

7.  This miscalculation was due to confusion over whether there was a year “zero.” Russell wrote, “In view of this strong Bible evidence concerning the Times of the Gentiles, we consider it an established truth that the final end of the kingdoms of this world, and the full establishment of the Kingdom of God, will be accomplished near the end of A.D. 1915.” Charles Taze Russell”The Time Is At Hand” Studies In the Scriptures Series II (1915) 99, 101, 242.

8.  “Therefore we may confidently expect that 1925 will mark the return of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the faithful prophets of old, particularly those named by the Apostle in Hebrews 11, to the condition of human perfection.” Joseph Rutherford, Millions Now Living Will Never Die (Brooklyn, NY: International Bible Students Association, 1920) 89-90.

9.  “Whatever the date for the end of this system, it is clear that the time left is reduced, with only approximately six years left until the end of 6,000 years of human history.” The Watchtower (May 1, 1970) 273.

10.  ‘When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word which the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously, you need not be afraid of him.”                                             Deuteronomy 18:22

We need solid proof for their claim to divine authority. Jehovah’s Witnesses certainly do not appeal to any miraculous intervention from God as proof.

Watchtower

Only when the Witnesses begin to see that the Watchtower is untrustworthy can they be open to seeing which Church really does have God’s authority.


Jehovah Witnesses

Heaven is reserved for 144,000 chosen Witnesses. Eternity on new earth  will be for other Witnesses.

ALL OTHERS ARE ANNIHILATED. 

Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that a heavenly government over earth will replace existing human governments and all non-Witnesses will be destroyed, creating a society of true worshipers.

God is kind and merciful and He would not eternally torture wicked people in a place called hell. He does not force His sovereignty on people, but saves only those who want to serve Him.

Jehovah’s Witnesses teach that God’s kingdom has 144,000 humans which will have been raised to heaven. They believe that 144,000 people will be resurrected into heaven to be priestly rulers under Christ, but the rest of humanity that “believes” will be relegated to physical life in a paradise on earth.

Opps!

How narrow-minded to claim that “all others will be annihilated”! God just has to be more open-minded than that. There is much deep wisdom and value in other religions and that the Witnesses should respect them and learn from them.  “After all, Christ is the eternal, pre-existent word of God, “which enlightens every man who comes into the world”                                                                                                    John 1:9

JEHOVAH’S WITNESS TESTIMONY

Anne became involved in the Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1981, and spent the next 18 months having weekly Bible studies and attending their Sunday meetings at the Kingdom Hall.

Many Jehovah’s Witnesses have come out of a mainstream church. They usually have an incredible zeal for God. They know the importance of evangelism, especially friendship evangelism.

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

The antagonism they often receive at the door only serves to reinforce in their minds that they are being persecuted for the sake of the Kingdom. The difference is they are trying to earn their way to God’s Kingdom. If you can send them away with a doubt, with something to think about, is much more value than getting into a full-blown debate.

But, Christians have the assurance of our place in God’s Kingdom. We now know that when we put Jesus in his rightful place, that is God’s free gift to us.

When Anne left the JWs that wasn’t the end of it though. It took months and months and months to overcome the indoctrination she had had.

JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES TEACHINGS
JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES TEACHINGS

JEHOVAH WITNESS CULTURE AND FAMILY

There is a lot of good in Jehovah Witnesses. Christians do not come with a spirit of criticism or superiority. We can appreciate in Jehovah Witness Faith: the teaching that children obey their parents, including many aspects of morality, teaching against alcohol intoxication, opposing fornication and other forms of immorality. 

Christians do not want to destroy the Jehovah Witness way of life and replace it with Christian customs and Christian way of life. We realize that there may be a loss of one’s relationship with their family.

In the end, one’s conversion will benefit the whole family because of the gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance available. A prayer of deliverance (of evil spirits) will leave a Jehovah Witness member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple will bring about 80% healing, and the remaining healing will come about with a convert’s prayer of praise and thanksgiving. This healing comes through the Name of Jesus Christ and no other god or deity. This should be proof enough of the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.

On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

Is the BIBLE true? 2

IS EVERYTHING IN THE BIBLE TRUE?     

Is the BIBLE true?

 We accept the Bible as the inspired true Word of God. The writers were inspired, moved by the Holy Spirit:  “No part of the Holy Writings came long ago because of what man wanted to write. But holy men who belonged to God spoke what the Holy Spirit told them.” 2 Peter 1:21. The writings are inspired, as if breathed or spoken by God.

The message of the Bible never alters. It is always up-to –date, speaking to the issues of the day.  Abraham Lincoln called it, “God’s best gift to man.”

Bible is true

The Bible is a guide to salvation through faith in Christ, and sufficient for doctrine, correction, moral and ethical instruction “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16.

Bible is true

 Inspiration is essentially incompatible with error. It is impossible that God himself, the supreme Truth, can utter that which is not true. 

Bible is true

The Bible makes the amazing claim that every one of its predictions is 100 per cent accurate.

The Bible is free from error only in matters of faith and morals and not in matters of history and science. Only those things needed for our salvation (i.e., faith and morals) and not history and science, are free from error. For example, although the first eleven chapters of Genesis are history in a true sense, the narratives contained within “relate in simple and figurative language, adapted to the understanding of mankind at a lower stage of development. Underlying Genesis are fundamental truths essential to divine scheme of salvation.

God allowed the divine message to be given in the phraseology of the human authors. Most alleged discrepancies in the Bible are easily resolved. “In order to discover the sacred author’s intention,” the Catholic Catechism states “the reader must take into account the conditions of their times and culture, the literal genres in use at that time, and the modes of feeling, speaking, and narrating then current”.

Let’s talk about prophecy. Accurate prophecies in the Bible support its validity.

Ironically, historians find the Bible to be an accurate record of many ancient events, more reliable than other ancient writings. 

Bible is true

  “I have to believe that Jesus was (and is) God. And it seems plain as a matter of history that He taught His followers that the new life was communicated in this way. In other words, I believe it on His authority. Ninety-nine percent of the things you believe are believed on authority… The ordinary person believes in the solar system, atoms, and the circulation of the blood on authority–because the scientists say so. Every historical statement is believed on authority. None of us has seen the Norman Conquest or the defeat of the Spanish Armada. But we believe them simply because people who did see them have left writings that tell us about them.”                                                       C.S. Lewis  A Grief Observed

What’s Your Authority?

A study of early Christian history shows that there was a considerable disagreement among Christians until the issue of the canon was finally settled; the early Christians agreed on the 27 books. Protestants accept this testimony as trustworthy, or else the Protestant Bible would not have those 27 books.  They have implicit trust that the Catholic Church made the right decision in determining the canon. 

The fact is that the Holy Spirit guided the Catholic Church over time to recognize and determine the canon of the New and Old Testaments. This happened historically in the year 382 at the synod of Rome, under Pope Damasus I. This decision was ratified again at the councils of Hippo (393) and Carthage (397 and 419). You, my friend, accept exactly the same books of the New Testament that Pope Damasus decreed were canonical, and no others. 

Protestant doctrines will almost always be drawn from interpretations of the sacred text rather than the words themselves. Why are there so many conflicting understandings among Evangelicals and Fundamentalists even on central doctrines that pertain to salvation? Everyone claims to be ‘Bible-only Christians,’ but which group is right and which has the authority?

By “authority,” we don’t mean one’s personal or academic credentials. We mean the authority to claim one can rightly interpret the Bible, which we received from the Catholic Church that is our sole rule of faith: who’s to do the interpreting?

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. 

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

GOD’S HEALING ASSURED 2

 HEALING?

 Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing.  They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.  Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.Chinese Religion God

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
