The ROLE of TEACHERS in the CHRISTIAN CHURCH

(PASTORS/EVANGELISTS/PROPHETS are included as Teachers.)

Many of you reading this book will say to yourselves, “Well, that certainly is not me! I do not have a profane secular humanistic worldview! I love God! I read my Bible. I pray to Him. What makes you think that I do not understand what my Bible says? What makes you think that I am not maturing in my faith? What makes you think that I do not know what I should know about God and how He desires for me to live my life? And who are you to judge me anyway? Who sets you apart as a teacher or my teacher?”

The RESPONSIBILITY of TEACHERS WITHIN the CHRISTIAN CHURCH.

© The Responsibility of Teachers within the Christian Church.

I must defend myself as did Paul when he said, Paul’s Defense at Jerusalem. “Brethren and fathers, hear my defense before you now.” (Acts 22:1) NKJV If I believe by faith that I have been gifted and called by God to be a Bible teacher, one who has a word of knowledge, a word of wisdom, is able to prophesy through my testimony, is able to discern spirits, speaks His truth to you in His love for you seeking your continued true spiritual growth, (1) wins souls to Jesus Christ and disciple them to a true faith so they may receive their eternal reward(s) in Christ, (2) and have the faith to believe and implement His calling and these gifts into my life, (3) then I must be obedient to God’s Word and His calling to share with you His truth as it is being revealed in His Word and by His Spirit during these last times. (4)
(1) And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. (Ephesians 4:11-13) NASU
(1a) But to each one is given the manifestation of the [Holy] Spirit [the evidence, the spiritual illumination of the Spirit] for good and profit. To one is given in and through the [Holy] Spirit [the power to speak] a message of wisdom, and to another [the power to express] a word of knowledge and understanding according to the same [Holy] Spirit; To another [wonder-working] faith by the same [Holy] Spirit, to another the extraordinary powers of healing by the one Spirit; To another the working of miracles, to another prophetic insight ( the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose); to another the ability to discern and distinguish between [the utterances of true] spirits [and false ones], to another various kinds of [unknown] tongues, to another the ability to interpret [such] tongues. All these [gifts, achievements, abilities] are inspired and brought to pass by one and the same [Holy] Spirit, Who apportions to each person individually [exactly] as He chooses. (1 Corinthians 12:7-11) AMP
(1b) And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” (Revelation 19:10) NKJV
(1c) As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love. (Ephesians 4:14-16) NASU
(1d) And so faith, hope, love abide [faith — conviction and belief respecting man’s relation to God and divine things; hope — joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation; love — true affection for God and man, growing out of God’s love for and in us], these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13) AMP
(2) But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6) NKJV
(2a) Jesus Testifies to the Churches. “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. (Revelation 22:12) NKJV
(3) For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.
Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 1:8-11) NKJV
(3a) With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith. We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Thessalonians 1:11-12) NIV
(4) But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth). For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him], and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future]. He will honor and glorify Me, because He will take of (receive, draw upon) what is Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you. Everything that the Father has is Mine. That is what I meant when I said that He [the Spirit] will take the things that are Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you. (John 16:13-15) AMP
(4a) SO THEN, let us [apostles] be looked upon as ministering servants of Christ and stewards (trustees) of the mysteries (the secret purposes) of God. Moreover, it is [essentially] required of stewards that a man should be found faithful [proving himself worthy of trust]. But [as for me personally] it matters very little to me that I should be put on trial by you [on this point], and that you or any other human tribunal should investigate and question and cross-question me. I do not even put myself on trial and judge myself. I am not conscious of anything against myself, and I feel blameless; but I am not vindicated and acquitted before God on that account. It is the Lord [Himself] Who examines and judges me. So do not make any hasty or premature judgments before the time when the Lord comes [again], for He will both bring to light the secret things that are [now hidden] in darkness and disclose and expose the [secret] aims (motives and purposes) of hearts. Then every man will receive his [due] commendation from God. (1 Corinthians 4:1-5) AMP

BIBLICAL CHRISTIAN DOCTRINES and PRINCIPLES of FAITH.

Where do we start in determining the foundation of one’s Christian faith? What would give our foundation of faith a vibrancy, an enthusiasm, a vitality, a life that no other god or religion can provide? Doctrines of the Christian faith are Scriptural teachings on theological truths and are indispensable to Christianity. Without these doctrines and the biblical principles of faith that are found in them, Christianity would not have continued to exist like it has through the centuries! These doctrines of faith and their principles are what separate Christianity and Christ’s Bride Church from any and all other religions of the world thus they are extremely important! I have included some that God has shown to me. All doctrines of faith and their principles must be Scripturally based and supported.
The acronym for BIBLE is “Believers Instructions Before Leaving Earth.” The Bible is our basic spiritual food to the true Christian’s faith served to us by God the Holy Spirit and is as necessary as the physical food we eat and the air we breathe which is provided by God the Holy Spirit as the breath of life. (5)
(5) But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you. (John 14:26) AMP
(5a) But Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.'” (Luke 4:4) NKJV
(5b) And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. (Genesis 2:7) NKJV
(5c) As long as my breath is in me, And the breath of God in my nostrils, (Job 27:3) NKJV
The Protestant Holy Bible including both the Old Testament and New Testament is divinely inspired, is inerrant and infallible, and our only authoritative guide necessary for our daily living. (6)
(6) Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action), So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17) AMP
The One Creator God is revealed in the Bible as eternally existing as three persons – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit representing the Trinity. (7)
(7) Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord [the only Lord]. (Deuteronomy 6:4) AMP
(7a) “Come near to Me, listen to this: From the first I have not spoken in secret, From the time it took place, I was there. And now the Lord God has sent Me and His Spirit.” (Isaiah 48:16) NASU
(7b) Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (Matthew 28:19) NKJV
(7c) For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen. (Romans 11:36) NASU
(7d) For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. (1 John 5:7) NKJV
God the Son/Son of God is fully God and fully Son of Man. (8) Jesus Christ begotten of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, (9) was absolutely without sin, (10) died for all of man’s sins and was bodily resurrected from the grave (11) and ascended into heaven (12) where He sits at the right hand of God the Father (13) interceding on our behalf. (14)
(8) IN THE beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.  [Isaiah 9:6.] (John 1:1) AMP
(8a) No one has ever actually seen God, but, of course, his only Son has, for he is the companion of the Father and has told us all about him. (John 1:18) TLB
(8b) And the Word (Christ) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us; and we [actually] saw His glory (His honor, His majesty), such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace (favor, loving-kindness) and truth.  [Isa 40:5.] (John 1:14) AMP
(9) These are the facts concerning the birth of Jesus Christ: His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But while she was still a virgin she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 1:18) TLB
(10) You know that He appeared in visible form and became Man to take away [upon Himself] sins, and in Him there is no sin [essentially and forever]. (1 John 3:5) AMP
(11) For I passed on to you first of all what I also had received, that Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for our sins in accordance with [what] the Scriptures [foretold],  [Isaiah 53:5-12.] That He was buried, that He arose on the third day as the Scriptures foretold, [Psalms 16:9, 10.] (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) AMP
(12) Jesus Ascends to Heaven. (Mark 16:19,20; Luke 24:50-53) Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. (Acts 1:9) NKJV
(13) Christ Ascends to God’s Right Hand. (Luke 24:50-53) So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. (Mark 16:19) NKJV
(14) Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died — more than that, who was raised to life — is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. (Romans 8:34) NIV
There is no other Name under heaven –Jesus Christ – by which one must be saved. (15)
(15) Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12) NKJV
Each person is born with a sinful nature eternally separated from God (16) unless professing with their mouth and believing in their heart Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. (17)
(16) for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) NKJV
(16a) For the wages which sin pays is death, but the [bountiful] free gift of God is eternal life through (in union with) Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23) AMP
(17) But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is
rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:8-13) NKJV
God the Holy Spirit’s physical and spiritual work in the world includes being involved in the physical bodily process of human procreation {including the procreation process for all living species} also forming the spirit within each person at conception which is able to connect up to God the Holy Spirit, (18) Who convicts the spiritual hearts/mindsets of all sinners of their sins, (19) the Born Again spiritual birth of each new creation, (20) indwelling him/her (21) providing each with the Fruit of the Spirit, (22) Gifts of the Spirit, (23) the Sound Mind of Christ, (24) providing spiritual warfare weapons including prayer, (25) equipping each Saint to bear witness/testimony for Jesus Christ in their lives, (26) and upon one’s death, their spirit returns to God Who gave it for judgment. (27)
(18) The Coming Deliverance of Judah. The burden of the word of the Lord against Israel. Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him. (Zechariah 12:1) NKJV
(18a) As you know not what is the way of the wind, or how the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a pregnant woman, even so you know not the work of God, Who does all. (Ecclesiastes 11:5) AMP
(18b) LISTEN TO me, O isles and coastlands, and hearken, you peoples from afar. The Lord has called me from the womb; from the body of my mother He has named my name. (Isaiah 49:1) AMP
(19) However, I am telling you nothing but the truth when I say it is profitable (good, expedient, advantageous) for you that I go away. Because if I do not go away, the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you [into close fellowship with you]; but if I go away, I will send Him to you [to be in close fellowship with you]. And when He comes, He will convict and convince the world and bring demonstration to it about sin and about righteousness (uprightness of heart and right standing with God) and about judgment: About sin, because they do not believe in Me [trust in, rely on, and adhere to Me]; About righteousness (uprightness of heart and right standing with God), because I go to My Father, and you will see Me no longer; About judgment, because the ruler (evil genius, prince) of this world [Satan] is judged and condemned and sentence already is passed upon him. (John 16:7-11) AMP
(20) Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:3-8) NKJV
(21) Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own, You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20) AMP
(22) But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge]. And those who belong to Christ Jesus (the Messiah) have crucified the flesh (the godless human nature) with its passions and appetites and desires. If we live by the [Holy] Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. [If by the Holy Spirit we have our life in God, let us go forward walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit.] (Galatians 5:22-25) AMP
(23) Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines. (1 Corinthians 12:7-11) NIV
(24) For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart. [Isaiah 40:13.] (1 Corinthians 2:16) AMP
(25) For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds. (2 Corinthians 10:4) AMP
(25a) pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:17-18) NIV
(25b) In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. (Matthew 6:9-13) NKJV
(26) “You are My witnesses,” says the Lord, “And My servant whom I have chosen, That you may know and believe Me, And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, Nor shall there be after Me. I, even I, am the Lord, And besides Me there is no savior. I have declared and saved, I have proclaimed, And there was no foreign god among you; Therefore you are My witnesses,” Says the Lord, “that I am God.” (Isaiah 43:10-12) NKJV
(27) Then shall the dust [out of which God made man’s body] return to the earth as it was, and the spirit shall return to God Who gave it. (Ecclesiastes 12:7) AMP
(27a) For we must all appear and be revealed as we are before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive [his pay] according to what he has done in the body, whether good or evil [considering what his purpose and motive have been, and what he has achieved, been busy with, and given himself and his attention to accomplishing]. (2 Corinthians 5:10) AMP
Satan, a fallen angel, is a demonic adversary. One of his titles is “the god of this world.” Only by God’s permission can he tempt and attack God’s adopted children and only within the perimeters set by God. (28) When he comes to tempt us – the adopted children of God, we must use the Name of Jesus Christ with the same authority in rebuking him as Jesus used – God’s Word/Bible. (29)
(28) For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers’ minds [that they should not discern the truth], preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ (the Messiah), Who is the Image and Likeness of God. (2 Corinthians 4:4) AMP
(28a) In which at one time you walked [habitually]. You were following the course and fashion of this world [were under the sway of the tendency of this present age], following the prince of the power of the air. [You were obedient to and under the control of] the [demon] spirit that still constantly works in the sons of disobedience [the careless, the rebellious, and the unbelieving, who go against the purposes of God]. (Ephesians 2:2) AMP
(28b) Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:8) NASU
(28c) **** Read Job 1:6-12 and Job 2:1-6 to understand God’s Sovereignty and authority over Satan in setting parameters over your life which limits his temptations and influence in your life according to God’s directive.
(29) Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil.  After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”
Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'”  Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'”
“Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'” Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him. (Matthew 4:1-11) NIV
The Bride Church of Jesus Christ – The union of True Believers as the only true Christian Church. (30)
(30) The [Holy] Spirit and the bride (the church, the true Christians) say, Come! And let him who is listening say, Come! And let everyone come who is thirsty [who is painfully conscious of his need of those things by which the soul is refreshed, supported, and strengthened]; and whoever [earnestly] desires to do it, let him come, take, appropriate, and drink the water of Life without cost. [Isaiah 55:1.] (Revelation 22:17) AMP
Jesus Christ will return soon to take back His Kingdom (31) which will require judgment of all people living or dead. (32)
(31) Seventh Trumpet: The Kingdom Proclaimed Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” (Revelation 11:15) NKJV
(32) Then shall the dust [out of which God made man’s body] return to the earth as it was, and the spirit shall return to God Who gave it. (Ecclesiastes 12:7) AMP
(32a) For it is written: “As I live, says the Lord, Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall confess to God.” (Romans 14:11) NKJV
(32b) Preach the Word. I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: (2 Timothy 4:1) NKJV
There is a literal heaven which is the eternal dwelling place of God and the repentant True Believer and a literal hell which is the eternal dwelling place for the unrepentant, misguided, and counterfeit Make Believer and the lost sinful Unbeliever. (33)
(33) I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago — whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows — such a one was caught up to the third heaven. (2 Corinthians 12:2) NKJV
(33a) But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him! (Luke 12:5) NKJV
(33b) But as for the cowards and the ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage and the cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd and adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed) — [all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death.  [Isaiah 30:33.] (Revelation 21:8) AMP

Why are these doctrines and principles of faith so important to you? Because no other religion can make these statements from their teachings! We must know the intricacy and the intimacy that God has in our lives and embrace them! Many liberal denominations and liberal churches even though they may profess in their Articles of Faith some of the same doctrines and principles of faith, what is preached and taught in most of their churches comes with a very false and liberal dose of Biblical exegesis. (34)
(34) But if anyone teaches otherwise and does not assent to the sound and wholesome messages of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and the teaching which is in agreement with godliness (piety toward God), He is puffed up with pride and stupefied with conceit, [although he is] woefully ignorant. He has a morbid fondness for controversy and disputes and strife about words, which result in (produce) envy and jealousy, quarrels and dissension, abuse and insults and slander, and base suspicions, And protracted wrangling and wearing discussion and perpetual friction among men who are corrupted in mind and bereft of the truth, who imagine that godliness or righteousness is a source of profit [a moneymaking business, a means of livelihood]. From such withdraw. (1 Timothy 6:3-5) AMP
(34a) O Timothy, guard and keep the deposit entrusted [to you]! Turn away from the irreverent babble and godless chatter, with the vain and empty and worldly phrases, and the subtleties and the contradictions in what is falsely called knowledge and spiritual illumination. [For] by making such profession some have erred (missed the mark) as regards the faith. Grace (divine favor and blessing) be with you all! Amen (so be it). (1 Timothy 6:20-21) AMP

BEWARE of FALSE TEACHERS WITH their FALSE DOCTRINES WITHIN the CHRISTIAN CHURCH POSING AS TRUE BELIEVERS.

What you have to discern in your life is whether the teachings of your Christian Church truly lines up with the above doctrines of faith and with the Gospel Message as presented in the Bible. Recently, one of the largest mega-churches in the United States repented from their false presentation of God and His Word to their congregation. (35) They professed using slick marketing research methods rather than God the Holy Spirit to help their church grow. They sought to be a seeker sensitive church i.e. having many programs that established relationships between people but not necessarily with God, providing entertaining programming to draw in the people but not true teachings to bring true conversions to Christ.
(35) A Shocking “Confession” from Willow Creek Church. Google crosswalk.com/pastors/11558438/
(35a) For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. (2 Timothy 4:3-4) NIV

They handed out surveys to determine and share what growth was transpiring in their church. (36) Where those who attended this church actually “unconverted converts” believing they were Believers when in actuality they were still Unbelievers? God the Holy Spirit was not free to work among the Leaders and Saints of that church and instead a different gospel with another Jesus who came through a different spirit was reflected in their church. (37) Prayerfully, through their repentance, they are back on the right track of preaching and teaching Christ and Him crucified. (38)
(36) BUT ALSO [in those days] there arose false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among yourselves, who will subtly and stealthily introduce heretical doctrines (destructive heresies), even denying and disowning the Master Who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their immoral ways and lascivious doings; because of them the true Way will be maligned and defamed. And in their covetousness (lust, greed) they will exploit you with false (cunning) arguments. From of old the sentence [of condemnation] for them has not been idle; their destruction (eternal misery) has not been asleep. (2 Peter 2:1-3) AMP
(37) But [now] I am fearful, lest that even as the serpent beguiled Eve by his cunning, so your minds may be corrupted and seduced from wholehearted and sincere and pure devotion to Christ. [Genesis 3:4.] For [you seem readily to endure it] if a man comes and preaches another Jesus than the One we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the [Spirit] you [once] received or a different gospel from the one you [then] received and welcomed; you tolerate [all that] well enough! (2 Corinthians 11:3-4) AMP
(37a) The Great Apostasy. Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, (1 Timothy 4:1) NKJV
(38) AS FOR myself, brethren, when I came to you, I did not come proclaiming to you the testimony and evidence or mystery and secret of God [concerning what He has done through Christ for the salvation of men] in lofty words of eloquence or human philosophy and wisdom; For I resolved to know nothing (to be acquainted with nothing, to make a display of the knowledge of nothing, and to be conscious of nothing) among you except Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and Him crucified. (1 Corinthians 2:1-2) AMP

Some of the characteristics of a church or a denomination with a profane secular humanistic worldview include their views and teachings that espouse abortion as a means of birth control and as a woman’s right, homosexuality as an alternative lifestyle, infanticide, euthanasia, legalizing illegal drugs, legalizing gambling, a large involvement in social justice, endorsing church members involvement in politics, etc. As we all know, these rights are brought to fruition through the legislative processes of the governments involving politics which is known as the “art of compromise.” God is not a God of compromise! And He demands that His People not compromise His doctrines of faith with the world. (39)
(39) Happy are all who search for God and always do his will, rejecting compromise with evil and walking only in his paths. (Psalms 119:2-3) TLB
(39a) “Be very, very careful never to compromise with the people there in the land where you are going, for if you do, you will soon be following their evil ways. (Exodus 34:12) TLB
(39b) We know [absolutely] that anyone born of God does not [deliberately and knowingly] practice committing sin, but the One Who was begotten of God carefully watches over and protects him [Christ’s divine presence within him preserves him against the evil], and the wicked one does not lay hold (get a grip) on him or touch [him]. (1 John 5:18) AMP

There are many, many, many other examples too numerous to mention in this book of Make Believers with the profane secular humanistic worldview of the false whore church mixed into The Christian Church with the True Believers of Christ’s Bride Church with their spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God Biblical Christian Worldview. Using God the Holy Spirit’s help, you must make sure that you are correctly and thoroughly spiritually grounded in the truth of God’s Word and then following the leading of God the Holy Spirit and His gifting you with a discerning spirit, you must discern the worldview of the leadership and of your Brothers and Sisters in your church and your involvement in that church.

If your present church has a spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God Biblical Christian Worldview, then engage with them wholeheartedly. (40)  If your present church has a profane secular humanistic worldview, the Bible commands you to get out of it. Leave as gracefully as possible but leave regardless as to whether you have many family and/or friends in the congregation. The separating of yourself from a church that has a form of godliness but denies its power will not be an easy task (41) and can only happen if you know your Bible and will follow the leading of God the Holy Spirit. If you are asked why you are leaving, be sure in God’s love to use His Biblical truths in explaining your decision. (42)
(40) Not forsaking or neglecting to assemble together [as believers], as is the habit of some people, but admonishing (warning, urging, and encouraging) one another, and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching. (Hebrews 10:25) AMP
(40a) WE WHO are strong [in our convictions and of robust faith] ought to bear with the failings and the frailties and the tender scruples of the weak; [we ought to help carry the doubts and qualms of others] and not to please ourselves. Let each one of us make it a practice to please (make happy) his neighbor for his good and for his true welfare, to edify him [to strengthen him and build him up spiritually]. (Romans 15:1-2) AMP
(41) I wrote you in my [previous] letter not to associate [closely and habitually] with unchaste (impure) people — Not [meaning of course that you must] altogether shun the immoral people of this world, or the greedy graspers and cheats and thieves or idolaters, since otherwise you would need to get out of the world and human society altogether!
But now I write to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of [Christian] brother if he is known to be guilty of immorality or greed, or is an idolater [whose soul is devoted to any object that usurps the place of God], or is a person with a foul tongue [railing, abusing, reviling, slandering], or is a drunkard or a swindler or a robber. [No] you must not so much as eat with such a person.
What [business] of mine is it and what right have I to judge outsiders? Is it not those inside [the church] upon whom you are to pass disciplinary judgment [passing censuring sentence on them as the facts require]? God alone sits in judgment on those who are outside. Drive out that wicked one from among you [expel him from your church]. (1 Corinthians 5:9-13) AMP
(41a) But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. (2 Timothy 3:5) NASU
(42) Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth. (2 Timothy 2:15) AMP
(42a) However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. (John 16:13-14) NKJV
(42b) Instead, we will lovingly follow the truth at all times — speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly — and so become more and more in every way like Christ who is the Head of his body, the Church. Under his direction, the whole body is fitted together perfectly, and each part in its own special way helps the other parts, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. (Ephesians 4:15) TLB

The SECULAR MEDIA WITH ITS COUNTERFEIT CHRISTIANS.

I must interject a group of individuals who are spewing false theological exegesis/ interpretation of God and His Word into their profane secular humanistic worldview to the True Believers in Christ’s Bride Church. I know this will not set well with many of my politically conservative Christian Sisters and Brothers! These are the numerous radio and T. V. multimedia personalities who have a huge influence on the philosophical worldview of their audiences. Almost all of these personalities consider themselves to be experts on the profane secular humanistic worldview for our nation and even the world at large. Some express a conservative political bent/worldview, and some claim to be Christians which attracts many Christians to their bully pulpits. These include but are not restricted to: Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, Brit Hume, Rusty Humphrey, Laura Ingram, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Michael Savage, Cal Thomas, etc. Out of this group, several may spout what they believe to be the true Gospel Message but they have little or no understanding of God’s spiritual realm with its spiritual warfare. Only Cal Thomas seems to understand and openly declare and stand for the spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God Biblical Christian Worldview on a regular basis to his viewers, listeners, and readers. (43) Brit Hume has left Fox News to become more involved with his Christian faith. (PTL!!!) Most of these Christian media types who in their supposedly conservative faith, sprinkle a small amount of “Christianese” into their philosophical profane secular humanistic worldview and voila, many naïve Christians who respect and accept the spouting of their media “Christian Brothers and Sisters” now view them as authoritative sources on Biblical exegesis. How does God view them and their profane secular humanistic worldview? (44)
(43) **** Go to www.calthomas.com
(44) “‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.'” Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen and understand. What goes into a man’s mouth does not make him ‘unclean,’ but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him ‘unclean.'”
Then the disciples came to him and asked, “Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?” He replied, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots. Leave them; they are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.”
Peter said, “Explain the parable to us.” “Are you still so dull?” Jesus asked them. “Don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man ‘unclean.’ For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are what make a man ‘unclean’; but eating with unwashed hands does not make him ‘unclean.'” (Matthew 15:8-20) NIV

Many Christian Brothers and Sisters have turned to these individuals because of their charisma, their incessant secular and spiritually nonsensical ranting and raving of saving the United States and the lifestyle to which we are accustomed – which is sad to say, music to their listener’s ears, and they have unending and abundant secular humanistic resources that further illustrate their profane secular humanistic nonsensical teachings designed to influence and direct the faith and paths of their listener’s lives. (45) This is all part of a huge collusion between demonic spirits and misguided false teachers who introduce demonic deception and demonic led disservice to our Christian Brothers and Sisters who are immature in their faith to Jesus Christ. (46) SOME ARE MEMBERS OF CHRISTIAN CULTS AND HAVE DUPED CHRISTIANS INTO ACCEPTING THEIR POFANE SECULAR HUMANISTIC RANTINGS! PLEASE DO NOT BE MISLED BY THESE WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING! THEY ARE PROMOTING SAVING THE WORLD RATHER THAN SAVING THE LOST SOULS/SINNERS OF THE WORLD. THEY ARE PRESENTING A PROFANE SECULAR HUMANISTIC WORLDVIEW RATHER THAN A SPIRITUAL SUPERNATURAL KINGDOM OF GOD BIBLICAL CHRISTIAN WORLDVIEW. (47)
(45) “But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and {secular} knowledge will increase.” (Daniel 12:4) NASU
(46) God never sent those men at all; they are “phonies” who have fooled you into thinking they are Christ’s apostles. Yet I am not surprised! Satan can change himself into an angel of light, so it is no wonder his servants can do it too, and seem like godly ministers. In the end they will get every bit of punishment their wicked deeds deserve. (2 Corinthians 11:13-15) TLB
(46a) I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people. (Romans 16:17-18) NIV
(46b) For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.  And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians 1:9-14) NIV
(47) You Will Know Them by Their Fruits (Matthew 12:33; Luke 6:43-45) “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.  Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them. (Matthew 7:15-20) NKJV

I always have lots of questions! What is the difference between the profane secular humanistic worldview of a conservative person/Christian or the profane secular humanistic worldview of a liberal person/Christian, both focusing his/her philosophical bent/worldview on promoting and saving the world or saving BOTH the world and the lost of the world? NONE!!! (48) It is the holy spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God Biblical Christian Worldview that truly joins the Body of Christ as one and this is only found in the Protestant Christian Bible through the leading of God the Holy Spirit! (49)
(48) My people are destroyed for lack of {spiritual} knowledge. Because you have rejected {spiritual} knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. (Hosea 4:6) NKJV
(49) Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.” (John 18:36) NASU
(49a) But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. (Matthew 6:33) NKJV
(49b) When the Holy Spirit, who is truth, comes, he shall guide you into all truth, for he will not be presenting his own ideas, but will be passing on to you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. He shall praise me and bring me great honor by showing you my glory. All the Father’s glory is mine; this is what I mean when I say that he will show you my glory. (John 16:13-15) TLB
(49c) “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. (John 17:20-23) NIV

As a mature Christian, you should be equipped to discern these false teachings, rebuke them, and declare the true message of the Gospel. You must take a correct stand against the false teachings of these false teachers. (50)
(50) Preach the Word. I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. (2 Timothy 4:1-5) NKJV

Paul clearly states the true spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God Biblical Christian Worldview has only one true foundational focus. We are to stay away from those with lofty words of eloquence, human philosophy, and wisdom. We are to know nothing except Christ and Him crucified. (51) We are to concentrate the work of our lives to the winning and the discipling of lost sinners and Make Believers to Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, Lord God, and Master in their lives. (52)
(51) Christ Crucified. And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. (1 Corinthians 2:1-2) NKJV
(52) Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings. (1 Corinthians 9:19-23) NIV
(52a) “For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. (2 Peter 2:20) NKJV
(52b) “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” (Acts 2:36) NKJV
(52c) For admission has been secretly gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. (Jude 4) RSV

What these Christian media personalities do not realize is the profane secular humanistic worldview they present to their Christian Brothers and Sisters as true principles of the political conservative world are in reality demonic deception leading both them and their listeners astray into living a life based on false assumptions and false teaching of actually ending up worshiping and serving the world and the things of this world. (53) This false teaching leads both the Christian multimedia personalities and their Christian Brothers and Sisters viewers and listeners into the deceptive worship and service of the social, political, economical, religious segments of the false god of this world – Satan – and his kingdom of the world rather than trusting in and relying on God to provide for them. (54)
(53) For such men are false apostles [spurious, counterfeits], deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles (special messengers) of Christ (the Messiah). And it is no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light; So it is not surprising if his servants also masquerade as ministers of righteousness. [But] their end will correspond with their deeds. (2 Corinthians 11:13-15) AMP
(54) You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, For in Yah, the Lord, is everlasting strength. For He brings down those who dwell on high, The lofty city; He lays it low, He lays it low to the ground, He brings it down to the dust. The foot shall tread it down — The feet of the poor And the steps of the needy.” The way of the just is uprightness; O Most Upright, You weigh the path of the just.
Yes, in the way of Your judgments, O Lord, we have waited for You; The desire of our soul is for Your name And for the remembrance of You. With my soul I have desired You in the night, Yes, by my spirit within me I will seek You early; For when Your judgments are in the earth, The inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
Let grace be shown to the wicked, Yet he will not learn righteousness; In the land of uprightness he will deal unjustly, And will not behold the majesty of the Lord.
Lord, when Your hand is lifted up, they will not see. But they will see and be ashamed For their envy of people; Yes, the fire of Your enemies shall devour them. Lord, You will establish peace for us, For You have also done all our works in us. (Isaiah 26:3-12) NKJV

My Sisters and Brothers, if you claim to be worshiping and serving God but the efforts of your life are in reality worshiping and serving the world, the love of God is not in you. YOU ARE NOT SAVED!!! (55)
(55) If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. (James 1:5-8) NKJV
(55a) Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier. (2 Timothy 2:3-4) NASU
(55b) Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever. (1 John 2:15-17) NASU

The TRUE TEACHERS in the CHRISTIAN CHURCH MUST STEP FORWARD!

God is Sovereign, and if we are eagerly awaiting Christ’s soon Second Coming, and God is orchestrating all of these worldwide events, then one’s efforts to thwart this from happening has them actually fighting against God. (56) This is a huge disservice to gullible, weak, and unknowledgeable Christians because they are unable to discern between the god of this world – Satan – and the things of this world and the true living loving God and the things of God! The true teachers in Christ’s Bride Church must address these diabolical heresies of the false teachers within The Christian Church who are profaning the correct and true spiritual worldview of Its Saints by giving them assurance that God will not leave them nor forsake them if they truly repent and truly seek God’s thoughts and ways. (57) Paul is quite explicit about how he handled false teachers. (58)
(56) but if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it — lest you even be found to fight against God.” (Acts 5:39) NKJV
(57) For the Lord will not forsake His people, for His great name’s sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you His people. (1 Samuel 12:22) NKJV
(57a) But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; for you once were NOT A PEOPLE, but now you are THE PEOPLE OF GOD; you had NOT RECEIVED MERCY, but now you have RECEIVED MERCY. (1 Peter 2:9-10) NASU
(57b) So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10) NIV
(57c) And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.” (Deuteronomy 31:8) NKJV
(58) He must hold fast to the sure and trustworthy Word of God as he was taught it, so that he may be able both to give stimulating instruction and encouragement in sound (wholesome) doctrine and to refute and convict those who contradict and oppose it [showing the wayward their error]. For there are many disorderly and unruly men who are idle (vain, empty) and misleading talkers and self-deceivers and deceivers of others. [This is true] especially of those of the circumcision party [who have come over from Judaism]. Their mouths must be stopped, for they are mentally distressing and subverting whole families by teaching what they ought not to teach, for the purpose of getting base advantage and disreputable gain. (Titus 1:9-11) AMP
(58a) I am surprised and astonished that you are so quickly turning renegade and deserting Him Who invited and called you by the grace (unmerited favor) of Christ (the Messiah) [and that you are transferring your allegiance] to a different [even an opposition] gospel. Not that there is [or could be] any other [genuine Gospel], but there are [obviously] some who are troubling and disturbing and bewildering you [with a different kind of teaching which they offer as a gospel] and want to pervert and distort the Gospel of Christ (the Messiah) [into something which it absolutely is not]. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to and different from that which we preached to you, let him be accursed (anathema, devoted to destruction, doomed to eternal punishment)! As we said before, so I now say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel different from or contrary to that which you received [from us], let him be accursed (anathema, devoted to destruction, doomed to eternal punishment)! (Galatians 1:6-9) AMP
(58b) But what I am doing I will continue to do, so that I may cut off opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the matter about which they are boasting. (2 Corinthians 11:12) NASB
(58c) Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in these things, for as you do this you will ensure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you. (1 Timothy 4:16) NASU
