DOES GOD ACCEPT WORSHIP FROM PEOPLE WHO TEACH FALSE DOCTRINE?
God does not accept worship based on a lie. He rejects it. He will only accept worship based on the truth.
John 4:23, ...the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
WHAT IS TRUTH? HOW CAN ONE KNOW IT?
...thy word is truth. John 17:17
DO WE NEED A MAN TO TEACH US THE TRUTH, THE WORD OF GOD?
Not according to the scriptures. The Holy Ghost Himself teaches.
...the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 1 Corinthians 2:13
...the anointing which ye have received of him [God] abideth in you... the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. 1 John 2:27
We are not taught of man.
...ye need not that any man teach you 1 John
Which things also we speak, NOT in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, 1 Corinthians 2:13 2:27
Men lie. We must rely on the Bible.
God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar Romans 3:4
God is not a man, that he should lie...Numbers 23:19
WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE WHO PREACH FALSE DOCTRINE LIKE THE CATHOLIC RELIGION?
Jesus said that they that worship the Father must worship Him in spirit and in TRUTH. The Catholic religion is full of blasphemy and murder. The Catholic religion tortured and killed millions and millions of Christians who refused to bow the knee to the papacy. So, how are we to respond to this false religion?
...have NO fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. Ephesians 5:11
The Catholic religion is proven darkness. Paul tells us here to HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP WITH THEM but rather REPROVE them. Who are you reproving? Unfortunately, you are having fellowship with them.
WHAT IF A MAN/RELIGION CHANGES THE GOSPEL MESSAGE?
Paul says let him/it be ACCURSED! He doesn't say, "Forget the non-essentials".
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. ...if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. Galatians 1:8-9
The Catholic religion brings another gospel--a sacramental gospel. What doth the scripture say? Let it be ACCURSED. What are you doing? Blessing them. What does the scripture say about blessing the heretic? This:
For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. 2 John 1:11Everytime you bless these people, YOU are a partaker of their evil! Professing Christians have been duped by Satan into desiring the things of men instead of the things of God. They worry about "hurting people's feelings".
...Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. Matthew 16:23
According to the Bible, it's okay for people to be sad if it will work repentance in their heart.
...godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. 2 Corinthians 7:10
HOW TO RESPOND TO PEOPLE THAT INSIST ON GOING THE WRONG WAY.
A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject. Titus 3:10
If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha. 1 Corinthians 16:22
HOW DOES GOD FEEL ABOUT THE WICKED?
God is angry with the wicked every day. Psalms 7:11
HOW DO WE SHOW LOVE FOR JESUS?
Real love is not a touchy-feely-make-everybody-feel-good proposition. It is doing what the Lord Jesus tells us to do.
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me...He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings... John 14:21, 24
A lot of people are giving God lip service about loving Jesus and accepting Him as Lord and Saviour, but God does not accept us based on lip service.
And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. 1 Samuel 15:22
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. Psalms 51:17
WHO IS THE ONE WITH THE FALSE POSITION?
The people who say, "Forget the non-essentials we all just love Jesus" are dead wrong. Know ye not that there is more than one Jesus and that we're not all talking about the same one?
For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, 2 Corinthians 11:4
The Catholic religion preaches another Jesus who Paul did not preach. Their Jesus lives inside a piece of bread. The JWs preach another Jesus. So do the Mormons, Christadelphians, Garbage Eaters, Muslims, Atheists, Satanists and every other weirdo cult. The NIV, Phillips, and other modern Bibles say things that God did not say and remove things that God did say. Falsehood is found everywhere. All the foundations of the earth are out of course.
I don't expect anyone to come to this site and just take my word for the information I'm sharing. You can look it up for yourself. It's verifiable. Go to some Catholic websites and check out the various tenets, compare the scriptures between the NIV/NKJV, etc. with the Authorised Version of the Bible. The data is there in front of your eyes! It's verifiable so what's your problem?
For some people who have come to this site, it is the first time they've heard the truth about their false religion or belief. Some people get saved as a result. Will I shut up because some ecumenists say, "You're not loving"? Nay, I will rather obey God. Obeying and telling the truth is love. Letting someone go to the lake of fire because you're too scared to tell them the truth is HATE.
