Where I Differ With Historical Orthodox Christianity?

Hi B____,

Thank you for your question.

Sorry, but I cannot rewrite my site for the convenience of an individual. I receive hundreds of e- mails every month. I hope you understand.

But here are a few scriptures which should give you pause if you cannot understand what it is that is being shown on the site:

Mat 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

Do you believe these words of our Lord? Christianity is the largest religion on earth. Did Christ just not get it right this time?

How about this verse:

Mat 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all [ men] for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Are you “hated of all men”? Do you believe this applies to us today, or are these words for someone else?

Finally, here is what God tells us of His people yesterday and today:

Isa 3:1 For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water,

That is why Christ spoke in parables. He had taken away the whole stay of bread and water and did not want the multitudes to know who He was. It is the same to this day:

Mat 13:2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
Mat 13:3 And he spake many things unto them in parables,

When the disciples asked Christ why He taught the multitudes in parables, just look at what His answer was:

Mat 13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
Mat 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

Christ spoke in parables because it was not given to the multitudes to understand the mysteries of the kingdom of God. If it were “given” to the multitudes of Christianity to understand the parables of Christ, then they would understand. One day it will be given to “all who are in Adam” to understand, but at this time it is not.

Does that make any sense to you? What Christ is telling us is that He did not come to save the world at this time. He is choosing out a very few through whom He will save all:

1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
1Ti 4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially [ not exclusively] of those that believe.
1Jn 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for [ the sins of] the whole world.

It is very telling that none these verses are ever preached in any “historical orthodox Christian church.” ‘If the scripture does not fit, then you must omit’ seems to be the policy when it comes to God’s Word.

These are just a few of the differences between the voice of a true shepherd as opposed to the voice of “another Christ” who is so commonly heard in all of orthodoxy.

Joh 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

In reading the gospels, I get the distinct impression that the scribes and Pharisees thought that Christ, too, simply misunderstood them and their doctrines. In reality Christ understood their doctrines perfectly. His doctrine simply differed then even as it does to this very day.

I take no pleasure at all in having been given the ability to see the difference between God’s Word and the doctrine and leavening of the Pharisees in “historical orthodox Christianity.” It was simply “given to me” as it has been given to others. I pray that God will give you the eyes to see the “hidden things of the spirit.”

1Co 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
1Co 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Consider it; if the multitudes of “historical orthodox Christianity” cannot even discern the clearly stated purpose for the parables, (“It is not given unto the multitudes who come to me to understand…”) what chance do they have of understanding the parables themselves?
