“Where are your Church Buildings and Credentials – How Dare You Speak to Us?”
Early Baptists did not advocate formal training for their leaders. They believed that, like Jesus Himself, (Who was not an ‘ordained’ Hebrew rabbi or teacher but a carpenter,) formal education cannot ‘justify’ a ‘position’ in the ‘church.’ The early Baptists, persecuted and brutally murdered, did not insist on formal education or grand church buildings, and neither should they have focused on man-made ideas instead of obeying the truth of Scripture. As in the days after Pentecost, they preached the Gospel and prayed for everyone — their enemies as well. In accordance with the truth of Scripture, they believed that all personally, born again believers, (in obedience to the commission of the Lord Jesus Christ,) are spiritual “kings and priests” in Jesus the Eternal High Priest, and were thus commissioned to preach the Gospel, and to minister to the spiritual body of Christ according to the sphere in which the Holy Spirit called and anointed them, (1 Pt. 2:9-10; 1 Cor. 12:4-31.) They did not have ‘church leaders’ to consult for prayers, intercession, and the administration of so-called ‘church sacraments,’ but went directly to God in prayer, (Heb. 4:6; Rev. 5:9 KJV.)
Conversely, Catholics and Reformers – just as most modern churches still do, detested all ‘unstructured, informal religion’ and looked down on the ‘un-churched ministry of uneducated laity,’ of the Baptists, who supposedly ‘falsely pretend church authority.’ (They never brought Jesus the High Priest’s Scriptural authority into focus.) In the opinion of those so-called ‘anointed clergymen,’ only formally ordained priests, ministers, etcetera, were and still are able to preach, pray, and administer their alleged ‘atoning’ or so-called ‘saving’ church sacraments such as the baby sprinkling, teenage confirmation, and ‘holy communion.’ The chains that bind them to their church system still do not give every true believer the liberty to preach the Bible according to the contextual truth of Scripture, (Mt. 28:18-20.)
Instead, their clergies must 'fill' a 'position' to which God never called them. But we must all realize that their church structures, grand buildings, (God does not live in buildings made with hands, Acts 7:44-50,) and formally dressed and learned clergies with their ‘saving sacraments,' could not have been called by the God of the Bible.
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth. He will never contravene His true Word and send His “called out ones” into a false church system that mocks everything Jesus stands for in the New Testament Covenant, (Rev. 18:4.)
“Those Fanatic Heretics pray, praise, and preach from the heart!”
The common Catholic/Reformed scare tactic through the ages has been the myth that one “goes mad” from personally reading, studying, and discussing the Bible “too much” - a lie from hell that still marches on among most denominations. In the Book of Acts, King Agrippa accused the Gospel-preaching Paul as follows, “You are beside yourself! Much learning [of the Scriptures] is driving you mad!” But Paul said, “I am not mad, most noble Festus, but speak the words of truth and reason,” (Acts 27:22-24.)
Nevertheless, the Mother of Christianity and her Reformed daughters still consider those, who preach the Gospel to make true disciples of Christ, personally study the Scriptures, and call for repentance from moral sin, “fanatics” and “Bible-punched sinners,” who “go overboard with the Bible to cover their bad consciences.” “They have the Bible under their arms and the devil in their behinds!” But instead of believing false preachers, “Those in Thessalonica received the Word with all readiness [but] searched the Scriptures daily to find out if these things were so,” (Acts 7:11.)
Unlike the early Baptists, church ‘saved’ and sacramentally or ritually ‘sanctified’ Catholics and Reformers did not pray, praise, or preach ‘from the heart.’ In fact, many still believe that only their ‘learned,’ ‘ordained’ clergy, who have ‘church authority,’ are able to preach, pray, and perform ‘anointed leadership’ tasks in the church – and outside their church buildings, God and His Word do not really exist. Consequently, most know nothing about preaching the Gospel, (in fact, they do not know the true Gospel of the Bible at all,) and even now, they keep to their Spirit-devoid, structured prayers and hymns. As a result, the early Baptists’ spontaneous, ‘fervent’ prayers of faith, praises to God, and preaching of the Gospel became another source of great irritation to them, (Jam. 5:16.) Those Baptists prayed for the State, the spiritually lost, the lonely, the persecuted, the sick, and the afflicted, while those church religionists did not. Many of them still do not really believe in answer to prayer and elementary miracles like God’s supernatural healing, just as they do not believe in His holy angels, the gifts of the Holy Spirit such as tongues and supernatural prophecy, or deliverance from the affliction of demons - which they say, ‘do not exist.’
“We have Authority to ‘Prune’ out the Bad Branches”
Jesus Himself plainly stated, “My Father is the Vinedresser, Who takes away every branch in Him that does not bear fruit,” (Jn. 15:1-8.) Yet, church clergy believe, if there are “bad branches” in the church, they, not God Himself, have the authority to “prune” ‘their’ congregations. [I am not talking about Godly disciple in the case of sinning believers, as commanded by Jesus in Matthew 18:15-10, which is virtually non-existent among church clergies.] As the requirements of the Moral Law never enter the scene, this ‘pruning’ happens only when church law and church sacraments are violated, or when church authority is ignored or challenged. Excommunication usually follows ‘sin against the clergy,’ which is a “danger to the church!” In days gone by, clergymen assumed the ‘divine right’ to incarcerate, torture, and execute, as witches and heretics, all such ‘insolence against the church!’ What barefaced, destructive witchcraft those false priesthoods of church religion are still committing against the Highest God, His true disciples, and His Holy Word!
“Baptists Fornicate in Darkness During their Meetings!”
Medieval Catholics and Reformers falsely referred the idea that pagans hold ‘love feasts’ during their meetings to the so-called ‘lost and unsaved’ Baptists, who also “fornicate in darkness during their meetings.” They said – as some still do, “They put out the lights and fornicate in the dark; catch the devil, scream, and go mad… You only have to come near them to catch their evil spirits!” Thus, Catholics and Reformers view(ed) sincerely born again believers and the true Gospel of the Bible as dangerous and repulsive. While those allegations do relate to pagan ‘love feasts,’ their scare-tactics were simply designed to keep people away from Jesus’ disciples, their meetings, and real, Scriptural salvation.
“THE DEATH PENALTY FOR ANA-BAPTISTS!”
All of the above ‘reasons’ gave the Reformers and their Catholic church fathers the ‘divine right’ to declare the death penalty for all Scripture-obeying Baptists, (Mt. 28:18-20.) With the support of the Roman Catholic Vatican and the military power of the Kaisers, the Protestant town council of Zurich began to execute the Baptists ‘legally’ by the sword, drowning, burning, and beheading. This was their formal decree, “It is our will that wherever they be found, whether singly or in companies, they shall be drowned to death, and that none shall be spared.” Bucer wrote in his “Dialogues” of 1535, “All governments should exterminate by fire and sword all those professing a false religion, and even their wives, children, and cattle… and cities predominantly heretical should be smitten with the sword and utterly destroyed…”
As dictators of both church and state, Calvin, Luther, and the other Reformers thoroughly saw to the lawful incarceration, torture, and extermination of the Baptists in Switzerland, but the murderous beast of Protestantism did not remain confined to that country. Europe’s monarchs and their Reformed clergies began to slay, burn, and drown all Baptists on sight. I wrote in the book, ‘Relationship VS Religion,’ “During the battle of Frankenhausen in 1525… Luther and the Kaisers murdered 100,000 farmers – 100,000 people in one battle – because the government and the Protestant church did not grant them their God-given right to serve Christ in spirit and in truth, and to proclaim His real Gospel… With the battle of MÜNSTER in 1535, this religious demon fused Roman Catholics and Lutherans together in their hatred for the real disciples of Jesus. They marched militarily against the Baptists and murdered hundreds in cold blood. Ultimately, the Protestant sword of Christianity drenched 16th century Europe in human blood….”
The magnitude of ‘Master’ Calvin & Company’s human sacrifices to Satan places the atrocities of their spiritual offspring, the South African Dutch Reformed Church with her masonic ‘dominees’ or ministers - the Baphomet-worshiping heart of the Afrikaner Brotherhood of the apartheid regime - into perspective. Filled with the murderous spirit of Roman Catholicism and Protestantism, those so-called ‘men of God’ racially oppressed most of South Africa’s citizens without a thought to moral conscience. Yet, the Truth Commission never even reprimanded the masonic Dutch Reformed Church for those atrocities and she remained in control of much of South African religion. However, their crime of apartheid is not a phenomenon foreign to this cruel religion. All unrepentant members of Calvinism’s “Nederduitse Gereformeerde Kerk” are still being what they really are – spiritually dead religionists, filled with the hard, unrepentant, murderous spirit of their evil church father, ‘Master’ Calvin. And so are the followers of Lutherism and the rest of Protestantism, (Rev. 18:4.)
HUMAN SACRIFICE OF EVANGELICALS AND OTHER CHRISTIAN WITCHES
Just as Roman Catholics and Reformers, ‘born again’ Charismatic and Pentecostal clergies know the truth of God’s Word, therefore, they are all without excuse, (Rom. 1:32.) Most evangelicals are likeable, humoristic people; polished to perfection in the art of public speaking. Nowadays, most evangelical clergy preach the Calvinist witchcraft of “the unconditional love and acceptance of God” without repentance from false doctrine and personal sin. So, someone said, “Most Christians want Evangelicals as friends – why, hell and the world want them as friends! However, would God call them His friends? James 4:4 warned, ‘Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.’” The Spirit Filled Bible 1991 version clarifies, “These are metaphorical terms in the Old Testament for those who break their vows to love and serve God, and instead follow idols. An illicit affair with worldliness results in estrangement and hostility with God.”
In ‘Conservative Cut – Bolstering Deception,’ Katie Wick reported on non-Christian Larry King’s interview with the polished televangelist Joel Osteen. Katie revealed an admirable passion for God’s holiness and truth when she wrote, “Pastors [like Osteen,] not standing firm on Biblical truth, are today’s version of what was spoken of in Isaiah 5:20, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness into light and light into darkness…” [This verse describes the perverted heart of all witchcraft!] “I guess Joel hasn’t noticed how often the Old and New Testaments talk of sin. In the King James Bible the word occurs over 800 times!... If you see someone you love doing something harmful are you going to allow self-infliction or are you going to speak up out of love for that person? The ‘condemnation’ [or ‘judge not’] excuse is an easy way out… in their attempt to appease the masses and keep their attendance up — [and to justify their own personal sin.]”
How terrible that Osteen’s humanistic philosophies and man-centered dogmas reveal the hearts of most preachers and teachers of God’s Word! In fact, those glossy, money-loving polytheists (worshipers of many gods) are leading millions of souls to eternal damnation by preaching ‘another gospel!’ [Gal. 1:6-10!] For the acceptance of man and for their own benefit, those wolves in sheep’s clothing are sacrificing human souls by the millions to their master of sin and deception! The bloodless human sacrifices, which these glitzy televangelists slaughter for Satan, surely exceed all those of Catholicism and Reformed Protestantism combined! As Katie Wick noted, evangelicals like Joel Osteen hardly stutter once during a sermon. Isn’t it incredible then, that during his interview on international television, a non-believer like Larry King exposed this charismatic pastor of millions as a religious fraud who stammer incoherently when he gets the opportunity to preach the Gospel of Christ to millions, who think they are saved but remain trapped in a state of lostness without the real Jesus Christ of the Bible through a dreadful lack of the Truth of His Word! (Jn. 8:12.)
God declared in Jeremiah 23:21-22; 1:3; Micah 3:1-5, “‘I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran. I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in My counsel, they would have caused My people to hear My words. Then they would have turned [My people] from their evil ways… Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!’ says the Lord… ‘Who hate the good and love the evil; who flay and pluck off [My sheep’s] skin from them, and their flesh off their bones; who also eat the flesh of my people; and break their bones, and chop them in pieces as for the pot…’ Thus says the Lord concerning the prophets that make my people stray, that bite with their teeth and cry, ‘Peace,’ but against him that puts nothing into their mouths, they prepare a Holy [and Just] War… You shall have darkness without divination… For there is no answer from God…”
Beloved saints of the True God of the Bible beware! Those people do not ‘merely’ want your ‘tithes.’ They want your souls and eternal lives in heaven. The sheep of those wolves are not “their flock;” all the souls are the property of Jesus Christ. They pretend ‘unconditional love and acceptance,’ yet, they “flay” millions of souls with lies, deception, and unashamed greed. They are witches who have their “hands full of [human sacrificing] blood,” (Isa. 59:3-5; 1:15!)
MODERN PAGANISM IS ‘ACCEPTABLE’ WITCHCRAFT
Witchcraft, cultural and in society, is a broad term that includes all forms of satanic “magic” and of course, what God defines in the Bible as “lawlessness, disobedience, rebellion, and stubbornness,” (Mt. 7:21-24; 1 Sam. 15:22-23.) Although “magic skills” have been in operation since the fall of humanity in the garden, during the 20th century, there was a mighty push in the media to ‘de-stigmatize’ the various forms of age-old, pagan witchcraft, to denounce the idea that they are securely seated in the occult; therefore, they are “not evil and demonic.” This led to a massive ‘renaissance,’ or revival of barefaced witchcraft/voodooism/Satanism in the form of paganism and neopaganism. And as that “revival” flourished, so we saw more and more bare witchcraft in churches!
Neopaganism gleaned its occult practices from ancient Egyptian, Roman, Greek, and other pagan mythologies, (religions.) Simplified, the word ‘neopaganism’ defines the ‘reinstitution’ of ancient pagan practices and beliefs. Today, neopaganism is sold in various packages as ‘modern,’ ‘civilized,’ and ‘harmless’ ‘New Age’ rituals, magic, séances, friendship with guiding and familiar spirits, (think of Walt Disney’s Casper the so-called Friendly Ghost,) fortune telling, casting lots, spells, mindreading, etcetera. Countless herbal and other wellness practices and shamanic medicines are sold for so-called physical, emotional, and spiritual ‘healing’ - which all come from pagan ancestor worship, and pagan religions such as Buddhism and Hinduism. Television shows on spiritism, (as in calling up and speaking to the ‘deceased,’ or actually demons, Eccl. 9:5-6,) are commonplace and forced sublimely as well as aggressively unto uninformed viewers.
All God’s born again believers should ask God’s protection over susceptible minds and speak out wherever possible, thus standing against the massive stream of ‘magic’ spells and other forms of witchcraft that are poured into adult and young, perceptive minds. Satan has launched a massive attack against humanity in the form of movies, adult and teenage sitcoms, cartoons, and other so-called ‘children’s stories.’ Most of these, such as Harry Potter books and films, are unabashed witchcraft under the guise of ‘innocent’ magic and fantasy. Satanic children’s books and movies are also disguised as Christian literature and recreation. For instance, many churches, Sunday schools, and Christian bookstores are promoting ‘The Lion King,’ (which is adorned with ancestor worship and witchcraft,) and ‘The Chronicles of Narnia,’ (based on magic, and the lion that was slain – while the Jesus of the Bible is the Only Lamb that was slain,) etcetera. Even believers in Christ are looking for Jesus in these types of Satanism, dished up as ‘handbooks to teach the Gospel.’
Wikipedia elaborates, “Some of the first groups of neopagan witchcraft to publicly appear in the 1950s and 1960s, such as… Wicca... [and the] Clan of Tubal Cain operated as initiatory secret societies… [Secret societies are the working parts of the global masonic/witchcraft machine, which infiltrate all segments of politics, religion, and secular life.] More recently, a movement to recreate [pagan] traditions has taken shape in polytheistic reconstructionism, [the renaissance or rebirth of pagan, polytheist religions with their many ancestor and other gods,] and various forms of shamanism or sorcery, (witchcraft practices through witch ‘doctors,’ ‘medicine’ men, traditional ‘healers,’ etcetera,) who are ‘discerning dangers through the spirit world,’ casting curses and spells, doing ‘magic,’ and different kinds of ‘healing.’”
Wicca is Ancient, Pagan Witchcraft ‘Revived’
Wiccans call their religion ‘just another form of neopaganism,’ which is “modern” witchcraft. Wicca is actually the religion of voodoo, (a potent potion of Catholicism and Satanism) ‘revived,’ and presented under a ‘new’ guise. All witchcraft religions are, in essence, Satanism – although most of them deny the existence of Satan as an entity, and supposedly worship ‘nature’ and ‘benign spirits’ instead. Wicca, as all other forms of religion, (Christianity, ancestor worship, and raw Satanism too,) is mostly a hereditary family religion, passed on from one generation to the other.
Wiccans, as all other true occultists, call both male and female Wiccans "witches." A warlock is not really a ‘male witch,’ but an ‘oath breaker,’ while a wizard ‘teaches magical abilities and spells.’ A sorcerer is one who has so-called ‘natural’ magic abilities. Wiccans call their religion ‘Witchcraft,’ ‘The Craft’ (just as in masonry and pure Satanism,) and ‘The Old Religion.’ Wiccans nevertheless allege, “We should educate people that a 'witch' is not evil but ancient and positive. Witches harm none. We live a peaceful, harmonious, and balanced way of life, promoting oneness with the divine and all that exists… We are not evil or dangerous. We are ordinary people like you… You don't have to be afraid of us. We don't want to convert you. And please don't try to convert us. Just give us the same right we give you - to live in peace.”
Despite their ‘harmless’ disclaimer, the Wiccan creed states, “If it harms none, do what thou will.” Satanism also declares, ‘Do what thou willst is the whole of the law.’ How can utter lawlessness not harm humanity and the rest of God’s creation? Look how rhinos and nearly every other creature are tortured and butchered for witchcraft, just as most of the plants and trees are being destroyed for witchcraft! If we ‘do what we will,’ we will always harm ourselves and others especially. Just as in other forms of religion, Satanism and Church Christianity too, Wicca is ruled by a hierarchical priesthood, and they also gather in covens or witches churches. Many practitioners of witchcraft do not actively attend gatherings in covens and nighttime witches sabbaths, but they all follow the basic practices of ancient Satanism.
The Occult/Jewish/Muslim/Christian Witchcraft of Dualism, or Duotheism
Wiccans, as other pagans or occultists, follow various writings on ritual magic such as the so-called Key of Solomon, which is witchcraft and masonic writings that are wrongfully believed to have originated from the Old Testament temple, which ‘freemason’ builders allegedly ‘built for Old King Solomon of the Bible.’ Their beliefs branched from ancient religions such as Druidism, and they also accepted teachings from Satan’s high priest Aleister Crowley’s Masonic order, the ‘Ordö Templi Orientis.’ However, the capsule that contains all the different toxicities of satanic teachings, is always the ancient pagan thought of ‘duotheist [two-natured] universalism.’ Simplified, this means that “the whole world is under the deception or ‘sway’ of a two-natured, good and bad god,” which is definitely not the Most Holy God of the Bible, (1 Jn. 5:19-20.)
The goal of all secret societies is to bring everyone in the world under Satan’s rule. Technically, Duotheism, Dualism, or Binitarianism means that the universe is governed by two ‘or dual,’ ‘primary’ gods, mostly contained in the form of one god, as described in Chinese yin and yang. Whatever they choose to call the double-natured ‘god’ of Duotheism, the real person they are referring to is Satan. God’s mighty angel Lucifer was once most holy and thus utterly good, but through “his own wisdom,” he corrupted himself and became the devil called Satan, yet he remained only one person, (Ezk. 28:17.) In theism, (the study of the existence of and belief in gods,) those complete opposites are combined in the character of one god, attributing to one god the duality of a holy as well as a sinful nature – e.g., lies and truth, light and darkness, etcetera. Duotheism can also refer to two distinctly separate gods of opposite characters that operate as one.
THE GOD OF THE BIBLE IS ONE GOD
In a gross act of witchcraft against the Most Holy God, most Jews, Christians, and even Muslims relate Duotheism or the teaching of ‘duality’ to the God of the Bible. They misunderstand the holy Character and omnipotent, omnipresent Being of the Highest Creator, Savior, and Judge of the universe. They relate the “scepter of His Kingdom,” (His righteousness and holy justice,) to duality, making Him into a good, as well as a bad god, (Heb. 1:8-9.)
They do not know that, to execute His righteousness in complete fairness, the True God ‘has’ to punish all sin and evil, which makes Him All-Holy and All-righteous, not evil. Psalm 89:14 declares, “Righteousness and justice is the foundation of Your throne…” Only a corrupt judge will refuse to execute righteousness and justice.
Still, under the New Testament Covenant, as a miraculous manifestation of His Divine love for all humanity, God chose to avert His justice to punish humanity’s choices to sin, by judging them according to their choices to either reject or accept His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, (Jn. 3:16; 1:12-13.) And so, He gave all those who personally choose to accept His Gift of eternal life instead of eternal punishment, redemption from darkness and salvation unto eternal life.
To understand the perceived ‘merciless vengeance of God’ in the Old Testament, one has to study the Bible from the New Testament perspective of James 1:13-18, “Let no one say when he is tempted, ‘I am tempted by God;’ for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed… Do not be deceived… Every good and perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with Whom there is no variation or shadow or turning…”
The God of the Bible is the only Mono or One, All-good God. The Old Hebrews were supposed to have been Monotheists; New Testament believers in Christ must be Monotheists. There cannot be any darkness in Jesus, the God of the Bible, because He does not only give truth, light, love, life, and righteousness, (Heb. 1:1-14.) Jesus Himself IS complete Truth, Light, Love, Life, and Righteousness, (Jn. 14:6.) In Christ Jesus there exists no lies, deception, or unrighteousness.
