Question? Why do you put down other peoples beliefs?
What would be MORE EVIL, for me to know the truth and NOT SAY ANYTHING to nobody or to TELL people of their FALSE BELIEFS and have them get mad at me for SAYING SOMETHING.
You and I BOTH KNOW the answer to that question. The Bible States in:
(Matthew 7:13,14) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: (14) Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
(Galatians 4:16) Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
I believe those Three Verses amply SUPPLY the answer to the question.
MOST churches and religious organizations ARE SENDING the majority of the people to hell THROUGH their FALSE GOSPEL messages and DECIEVING millions with FALSE DOCTRINE.
The Bible DECLARES that satan disguises himself as an angel of light ALONG with his FALSE TEACHERS that he has masquerading as SO – CALLED ministers of truth.
(2 Corinthians 11:14,15) And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. (15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
The Bible gives us a very SOLEMN WARNING in 1 John 4:1
(1 John 4:1) Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
The Bible also makes it VERY CLEAR that we who know and hold to the truth of God’s Word to Mark those that TEACH CONTRARY to the scriptures.
(Romans 16:17) Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
The Apostle Paul had NO PROBLEM in nameing those who NEEDED to be POINTED OUT and be made known for their FALSE TEACHINGS or beliefs ect. and the bible commands us to do the same, in fact the bible says we also NEED TO Come Out From Among Them, for what FELLOWSHIP does Light have with Darkness, EVEN with christians who have compromised and have errored from the truth and refuse to admit their sin to the Lor, we are told to have NO FELLOWSHIP with them so that we don’t become like them and BACKSLIDE out fellowship with the Lord.
(2 Timothy 4:10,14) For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia. (14) Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works.
(2 Thessalonians 3:14,15) And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.
(15) Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.
– Man = Christian / Believer.
– Obey not our word = The Bible / Word of God.
= Enemy = Lost / Unsaved Person
– Admonish = Warn / Reprove
(2 Corinthians 6:14) Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
(2 Corinthians 6:17) Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
NOTE: the phrase “and I will recieve you” in V17 of 2 Corinthians Chapter 6 is in reference to being recieved as a clean vessel READY to be of use for service to the Lord NOT SALVATION or being saved eternally as some have TRY to TEACH FALSELY.
(2 Timothy 2:19-21) Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. (20) But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. (21) If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
The Word of God makles it VERY CLEAR that we NEED to tell people about their FALSE beliefs and doctrines, the bible states in James 4:17:
(James 4:17) Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
The Good refering to telling somebody the Gospel and the TRUTH of God’s Word, to not do so would be sin on mine or any other christian’s part.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to known IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
