I have asked many times in the past why are there so many churches that go under the Name Christian and teach from the same bible for the most part but are diverse in their teachings and ideas of what the Christian/Hebrew bible acutely states?

Why do people follow men and why do people just go along without question? I have found that when anyone leaves their church they began to wake up and see the real errors of their former church. This is a fact and I have pondered the two questions I propose here for years and I do believe I have come to understand it. As I was meditating on this for the hundredth time the other day I remembered some collage classes I took around 1978 and the professor encouraged me to not just gain book knowledge about psychology but to find a subject I was interested in and research it and then give a presentation on the subject.

I remembered that I wanted to find the reason all police acted like police and all gangsters acted like gangsters, and why all ministers acted like ministers? When one thinks about this they realize it is true in all that humans do without exception. I wanted to know why some involved with the Neo-Nazis truly believe what they teach and want to do is right? Why is it that millions of Muslims want to murder anyone that does not believe the way they do? Why is it that a person will vote for a man or woman without knowing anything about their Ideology just because they are Republican or Democrat?

Why is it that those in Churches will believe what their lead minister at headquarters tells them without question? Why do millions accept that the Pope sets in the stead of the true Holy Father in heaven and worships the Pope and follows whatever he tells them when they would NEVER follow the men in Protestant churches and those in the Protestant churches would NEVER follow the Pope?

But why and what is the danger of this behavior? I will give the reason later so continue because this subject may very well be the answer to many thousands of people losing salvation by accepting the false Jesus and the false gospel being presented by Satan in this end time.

Yes thousands of ministers all over the Christian world are spinning biblical subjects to support their own Ideology. This being a fact the question becomes what would you do if Jesus stated you should not be involved with this type of Church Government structure? What would you do if you could know that to leave these churches set up by men you would have your eyes opened to a great deal of truth by the power of the Holy Spirit? Would you take that to heart and leave? When a person leaves the church they become free to think for themselves and in most cases if they don’t get involved with another group they gain “independent thinking” and the truth can be accepted when the Holy Spirit is called upon. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of truth however because God has given us free will choice His spirit will not force the truth on anyone.

Now where did Jesus state that we should not be members of any group that has the hierarchical structure? We find in Matt 20:25-28 that Jesus instructed His disciples not to lord over their brethren. Let's read it…"But Jesus called them to Himself and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant. And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave--just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."

Brethren there is something in all mankind that causes most to just follow along with others without question. Yes my friend there is a “deep fear” in many although some don’t know about it or if they do they don’t give it much thought because to do so would mean they would have to do something about it. My wife and I was talking one day about the truth and how hard it was to present it to people even with facts. She stated to me that people will say they want the truth till they hear it and then find that it does not go along with their church or what they want to do so they have to counter the truth with something that they can accept. She is right brethren and after years of study and thinking about this I have found the answer.

The fear I referred to above is the fear of rejection and isolation from friends and family. The fear is that the person will no longer have a place they feel gives them support and answers that go along with their long standing beliefs. You see most people want to be accepted and their church and family gives them security and assurance that what they believe and what they are doing is not only correct but accepted before God almighty.

This is called Group thinking and members try to minimize conflict by reaching a consensus on all doctrines and those that disagree (Even with facts.) are considered an outcast and is excluded from the group. All teachings from this outsider are also denounced as being incorrect and I have even been accused as one that does not work with the Holy Spirit. It is important to understand that loyalty to the group become more important than the truth and the minister’s job is to continue to reaffirm the churches doctrines.

With this understanding about our fear of rejection and isolation we can see why Satan has caused people to become trapped in these churches that teach truth in part but with the most important points perverted so they can’t reach the true creator and the true Lamb that shed His blood for them. This is why I teach so vigorously against Sunday worship, Christ-mass, and Easter because these pagan customs lead people away from the true Messiah. It truly shows why God very well may be scattering those He is working with in these last days and the teachings on the Master’s Table have been written with “independent thinking” and without the influence of anyone except I pray by God through His Holy Spirit as we stand on the promise from Jesus that states… “"But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” John 14:26

So how do we come to see the truth and not fall for the deceptions of men?

The facts are not only that God's word is truth but that the Holy Spirit is the spirit of truth so that leaves us with how are we going to know truth when we see it? The fact is although God’s word is truth we know mankind has in the past and will continue in this present world to pervert truth even if it comes from God because we have free will and God determined to allow us that.

Let’s answer how we who want the truth can sort out what mankind has perverted.

How is it that a homicide detective comes to the truth in order to be sure the right person is arrested for the crime? He gets himself out of the way and does not allow any preconceived ideas to cloud his judgment in the same way a judge should hear all the evidence from all sides before making a judgment on any case and again without any preconceived notions concerning the subject.

Discerning topics without any preconceived notions is the first key to finding the truth. You see truth has to be most important to you and as I have stated many times; I’m not concerned with what the outcome is I just want to know the truth. I follow the facts regardless where they lead and the factual truth will always surface and shine through because it is a law like gravity. You can ignore it or not believe it but truth cannot be hidden no more than darkness can remain when light enters a room.

God will give it to you if you want it however the day you say: “Well I don’t think” is the day you will stop receiving the truth and become one among the deceived and will remain there till you say: Not my will Lord but your will be done. This is the short answer but is the way I have done it for over 40 years and my starting place was this scripture in John 14:25-26 as stated above.

If one really understands the truth they would see it is something pure and clean as God is and if the truth is twisted in any way it become a lie and worthless and the person that knowingly changed it is liar but some even wants to dilute that and say it becomes a half truth. Let’s put it in terms that can be truly understood. I play the guitar and know for a fact that truth in the manner and ability with which anyone plays any Musical instrument or as any Artist, Dancer, Athlete, or the like employs their skills will show through as great, good, mediocre, or bad in relation to their commitment to the truth of each skill. The more true one is in what they do the greater they will do it and those watching or listing will notice.

Yes as staed above to preach the truth is not popular because although people say they want the truth they reject it when the truth does not correspond with their long standing beliefs. I will continue to teach the truth even if I repel all people from me and continue as Paul wrote to Timothy…

“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.”  II Tim 4:2

As we state on the home page; We investigate the bible without bias, or prejudice and examine what doctrines have been injected into the Christian Religion, then carefully examine what the Christian bible, and history reveals about these subjects. { The reader must decide what to do with the information. }

If you are involved in a church (Group) you might want to consider if you are caught up in group thinking thus unable to question the teachings. Pray about this and ask God in all sincerity to show you the truth.
