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.  Continue reading Christian Science: Missing Jesus 2

YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL 2

GUARDIAN ANGELAre they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister FOR them who shall be heirs of salvation?”                                                  Hebrews 1:14

The emphasis is on the word, “FOR”: your guardian angel will give you guidance and direction concerning the things in your life.

Remember the angel that came and awakened Peter and led him out of jail. They are waiting for you to give them orders just as a waiter cannot do anything for you until you give him the order.

Your guardian angel has many other angels working for your order: “Bring on all the ministering angels for Your glory, God.  I pray to cause all the needed finances be available for Your project, Lord.”

NEEDING ESSENTIAL DELIVERANCE 2

Deliverance EssentialTRYING TO MEET NEEDS IN THE WRONG PLACES

In Alcoholic Anonymous  they have a saying for insanity: trying to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result. We  are often guilty of insane behavior. 

First we must identify what our real needs are.  For example, caring for children can mask the need to care for ourselves. We can get stuck trying to meet false needs.

There are four essential needs

  • Affirmation: we need to be acknowledged and appreciated.
  • We need to express love: to hug and share.
  • We need to share our emotions and our experiences: what we think and what we feel.
  • We need to grow; we need space and opportunity to grow.

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU

ESSENTIAL DELIVERANCE

I have Defeated the Devil.

“I love you.

Come and join Me in the desert. I am here in a large cave where I spend My days with the Father in prayer. I am getting ready to begin My public life to bring the Good News to the people. Here in the desert I was tempted by the devil three times.

HEALING THE ADDICTIVE BRAIN 2

ADDICTION GRACEADDICTION RECOVERY

Addiction Recovery can take months and for some many years involving medication. There is a short cut that God provides in the form of Grace, which is a mysterious interweaving of divine grace and human willingness.

We may yearn to let go and let God,” but it usually doesn’t happen until we have exhausted our own efforts.

addiction grace

LOTS OF ADDICTIONS

Most people are addicted to something, be it a substance or one’s own self-concept. Anything that steals life from us and causes us to make illogical or hasty decisions is our addiction: anything we cling to instead of God. The object of the addiction, whether it is drugs or alcohol or sex are not the primary issue. Rather, it is becoming obsessed with them: a false sense of love. It includes many other areas: chocolate, food, Facebook, power, fame, pornography, even driving too fast, etc.

The truth is, we were never meant to be completely satisfied. Saint Augustine states “You have made us for Yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in You.” We give all our time and energy to the addiction, instead of love. We were created for love but we seek it apart from the Creator. Addiction, then, displaces and supplants God’s love as the source and object of our deepest true desire.

Addiction is a spiritual disease, a disease of the soul, an illness resulting from this same longing, frustrated desire, and deep dissatisfaction – which is ironically the necessary beginning of any spiritual path.” Continue reading HEALING THE ADDICTIVE BRAIN 2

CHRISTIAN YOGA? 2

Christianity YogaThe goal of yoga is to be one with the universe. In Scripture you will not find that You are the creation; you can’t be one with the creator. Scripture never says to clear your minds, but it says to meditate on the Word of God.

CHRISTIAN YOGA

 Yoga is not simply physical exercise; yoga is a spiritual exercise of Hinduism that makes room for the Kundalini “serpent power”. Through the controlled breathing, the posture, the stillness and/or repetition, etc. the Kundalini  can rise up and possess a person.

A person does not have to be looking for Kundalini in order for this to happen–the yoga itself creates the conditions. Mantras, stillness, repetition, etc. (different devil worshipers use different techniques) are summons to the devil. Gurus lead their students through different protocols to help them “prepare” for this entrance of the serpent power.

yoga Christianity

“The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.”           Revelation 12:9

The serpent power basically tells Hindus the same thing that Satan told Eve in the garden–“ye shall be as gods.”

Who does not know that Hinduism is pantheistic (saying that “all is god”) and teaches that all people are supposedly already god but they just have to realize it.

VOODOO SPIRITUALITY 2

VOODOOISMvoodooism spiritual beings loa

Vodou is primarily practiced in Haiti, New Orleans, and other locations within the Caribbean. There is great variation within Voodoo beliefs and practices. Many Vodou practitioners also consider themselves Catholics. Voodooism involves spiritual beings.

voodooism spiritual beings

As well as being the priest or priestess, the houngan acts as confessor, confidential and financial advisor, prophet and healer for the people in the community. But the houngan is more a folk healer with a considerable knowledge of herbal remedies who treats minor illnesses. While selling love potions and protective charms, including small bags to be worn for protection or for good luck, may be a lucrative side business for a priest or priestess, the primary occupation is still as a spiritual leader of his community. Voodooists especially places value on the strength of community for support.

Loa or Spiritual Beings

The spirits of death, The Guédé are really an enormous group of the loa who are the spirits of formerly living people. He is the one who controls the passage between life and death. In ritual, he is often offered black goats or chickens. The most frequently performed ritual in Voodoo is one that invokes a particular loa (supernatural beings) to offer food to him and seek his presence on earth.

The most important components of a human body, however, are the two parts of the soul, the ti-bon-ange (‘little good angel’) and the gros-bon-ange (‘great good angel’). The gros-bon-age keeps the body alive, and after death, it returns to the reservoir of energy in the cosmos. Without the gros-bon-ange a person loses his/ her life-force. The ti-bon-ange makes up the half of a person’s soul and it is the source of a person’s personality. Furthermore, it is responsible for determining an individual’s characteristics, personality and will.

In Voodoo belief, death is not seen as the end of life, but as a change. The soul – the gros-bon-ange and the ti-bon-ange – endures after death in a different form. The gros-bon-ange returns to the high solar regions where it joins the other loa (supernatural being) and is itself transformed into a loa. Approximately a year after the death, the houngan (priest) performs a ritual, to ensure that the ti-bon-ange is put to rest. This ritual is very important because otherwise the ti-bon-ange may wonder the earth and bring illness and disaster on others.

A Distinctive Human Soul

 A human person is a UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL BEING with a spiritual soul and a material body. 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.

WHAT DOES SPIRITUALITY MEAN? 2

IN SEARCH OF SPIRITUALITY

We are in this world but not of this world since every day Christians say: “Our Father who art in heaven…

Spirituality mean

Even when we worship different gods, attend different schools, have different skin colors, we’re all supposed to share spirituality.

But you have a compute and Wikipedia: “Spirituality can refer to an ultimate or immaterial reality; an inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of their being; or the ‘deepest values and meanings by which people live.’”

Yes, that’s Wikipedia! It continues on to say, “Spirituality is often experienced as a source of inspiration or orientation in life. It can encompass belief in immaterial realities or experiences of the immanent or transcendent nature of the world.”

Hmm! That’s extremely broad. Maybe you should read a book on the subject.

Princeton religion scholar Leigh Schmidt wrote one called Restless Souls that charts the development of American spirituality. Rather than the “New Age” phenomenon it is sometimes misinterpreted as, spirituality is an egalitarian, pluralistic realm of experience and thought has  a unique and sometimes intellectually advanced role in American history. So, basically, Schmidt can’t (or won’t) really define spirituality, either.

We instinctively know that it’s mixed up in religion, but it’s definitely distinct from institutional religion. Can someone be religious without being spiritual? It’s completely plausible.

On the other side of the coin, you hear “I don’t go to church, but I’m very spiritual.” You may get called spiritual once in a while without understanding what it means. People can use spirituality as a buffer. Relying on ambiguity can be risky. Continue reading WHAT DOES SPIRITUALITY MEAN? 2

SCIENTOLOGY: TRUTH OR CULT 2

Scientology: the Truth

Scientology had its beginnings in 1950 as a religion based on self. It is a non-Christian applied religious philosophy. Scientology is another cult that has little to do with science or scientists. Scientology’s highest authority is not the Christian Bible but a science fiction writer named L. Ron Hubbard.

Scientology(meaning “knowing how to know”) posits that man has a mind, body, and spirit (known as the “thetan”). We are  spiritual beings. 

People in Scientology spend exorbitant fees, sometimes as much as $1000 per hour, to attain the exalted state of operating thetan,” or “OT” (pronounced “oh-tee”) .Books are sold, counseling sessions are expensive. Scientology has no salvation to offer the poor. Nothing is said about the plight of the poor, the sick, the homeless and oppressed.

One veteran Scientologist told me she “donated” $250,000 in a twenty-year period. Other Scientologists can wind up spending family inheritances and mortgaging homes to pay the fees. 

Scientology has a warped code of ethics. In the Scientology code are such statements as “Never fear to hurt another in a just cause,” and “To punish to the fullest extent of my power anyone misusing or degrading Scientology to harmful ends.”

The concept of God, or a Supreme Being, does exist, but it’s of little importance in the Scientology system.  

Scientologists believe that they too can become gods. Scientology deifies Man (capitalized in their writings). Man’s reason will produce perfect behavior and therefore solve all the problems of the human predicament.

Man is basically good, but “engrams” (psychological hang-ups) prevent him from reaching his full potential. When released from these engrams through the sect’s techniques, man begins to live on a higher level in terms of his own human achievement. Opps!  “The church is a big, scary deal,” wrote one Scientologist.  I wish “I could save just one person the money, heartache and mind-bending control, then all would be worth it.”

A Hollywood script, LOUIS THEROUX: MY SCIENTOLOGY MOVIE proves that what people do in the name of religion can be truly stranger than fiction.

Scientology life after death

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”.

Scientology

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.

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

The BIBLE is divinely inspired by God. How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions of a possible 48 astonishing predictions l have a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17   (100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST be true.

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

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. 

SCIENTOLOGY CULTURE AND FAMILY

Christians do not want to destroy the Scientology 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 Scientologist 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.

Many Christians have been given the gift of healing and deliverance to be able to deliver away evil spirits influencing  Muslims, which cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.  This healing and deliverance is successful only in the Name of Jesus Christ:

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; their prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary who travels usually two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to five different 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 involved in the healing actually feel a complete physical  sense of peace that is unmistakable.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

When God heals in this way, He is giving a message to those being healed for a change of heart even without one’s faith. In His wisdom,, He knows faith will be developed. Dreams or visions often accompany this experience especially among non-Christians.

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

The Word of God: came to us from the Bible

In the beginning God made from nothing the heavens and the earth.”                                                                                                           Genesis 1:1

“He made from one blood all nations who live on the earth. He set the times and places where they should live. They were to look for God. Then they might feel after Him and find Him because He is not far from each one of us. It is in Him that we live and move and keep on living.”                                                                                    Acts 17:26-28

 “The heavens are telling of the greatness of God and the great open spaces above show the work of His hands.”             Psalm 19:1

”Lord, You have been the place of comfort for all people of all time. Before the mountains were born, before You gave birth to the earth and the world, forever and ever, You are God.” Psalm 90:1, 2

“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’”                   Psalm 14:1

Life after Death

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. 

WELCOME TO GOD!

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. 

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

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.

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.

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: Continue reading NEW AGE ENERGY FORCE 2
