My “get a New God Cult” is growing faster than you know. We are talking about mass brain washing.
That’s right , each that has not received another Jesus are cleaning the
cobwebs out with the written Word of God. No need to pray for revelation
because the written Word is revelation.

One world-wide religion  focuses so much on your sin that the order of importance of the bible comes in third place.
First is the word of a man who claims to be the Vicar of Christ and then next is tradition. Yes tradition of men! Talk about mind control, jeezus!

 

There is much to lose when people start to read the book and think for themselves. The many clear verses on a topic outweigh the traditions taught and if you take an even closer look at the manuscripts you can see big as day the forgeries that promote a political agenda to control the minds of men: lies.

 

If you were not a Jew you were not to whom the promise of a redeemer was given. The gospels are Old testament and Christ’s ministry was to the lost sheep of Israel ( the words "New Testament" in the bible are added by man, it is an interpretation that is wrong. The Gospels do mark the new dispensation that is strictly applied to the Jews). The gospels are great but they are not addressed to gentiles. They don’t teach that in Seminary or denominationalism. Who were the ten commandments addressed to? Why live like a Jew when you never were one and be put under the bondage of the law by a pagan
cult that wants you to focus on Sin, not the savior from sin? A: Because sin conscience is a strong legalistic motivator.

 

Guilt keeps you in line. So does condemnation.

Here is an example: The Tithe

The Tithe was a law that applied to the Jews. It was the
first fruits of your increase and never was supposed to be in money. So why is
money your ticket to a happy God? The food and animals were to support the
Levites who did the Temple thing full time and also for annual parties or
festivals for everyone. Now, it is taught that it is sin to not live like a Jew
and to not give your money to a denomination. One outfit is nearly 2,000 years
old and they are broke when Haiti needs help. They are broke when lawsuits
against their homo priests get going. 2,000 years of milking billions of people
and they are standing at the door with a handout so they can do the ‘Lord’s’
work. Some groups go so far as to audit your W2’s to check and see if you are
honest in living like a Jew. They want the 10% off the top, not just the net.
Taxes are a direct result of legalism and control of the masses. Hey, if the
church can do it, so can the entitlist  Kings who rule by divine right.

Turn on the boob tube and there are all kinds of people who claim to be doing the ‘Lord’s’ work. They are, you just do not understand which Lord they serve. If they mishandle the Word of God acting as men of God to get you to do something out of a guilty conscience, do you really think they represent God honestly on other matters? Ask an alter boy.

 

Things started to change when the printing press was invented. People began to read and the first
book printed was the Bible. Up until then, it was not a public book and if someone said something of a spiritual nature and claimed it was in the book, you were expected to trust them. The Trinitarian forgeries are clear to see where the manuscripts were altered. They were altered to protect lies. The lies of men who said ‘thus said the lord’.

 

“I and my father are one”. Does that say that Jesus Christ was God himself? No. They were one in
purpose in that Jesus did his Father’s will.  If you saw Jesus do his Father’s will, you saw the Living Word of God. If you read the gospels you will see that Christ was in opposition to the spiritual leaders of Israel. Sounds like things pertaining to God got muddied and even Christ said of the leaders they were of their father the devil. The father of lies. The spiritual leaders were living a lie and teaching the lies so others would live in bondage. When you live the Word of God people can see the God In Christ in you. Does that make you God too because you are like-minded with God's Word and put on the mind of Christ?

 

People read all around the book to find out what God’s will is for them and make statements that are not backed by scripture. God told Adam one thing and Lucifer had something else to say that got in Adam’s ear. One of the two sources was telling a lie. Adam did not trust the Word of God when another word was 180 degrees away. To come to the scriptures and trust them might be a challenge because of wrong teachings. You have to replace the lies with truth and the tradition that the people who you trusted to feed you the bread of life gave you: Styrofoam and marshmallows for truth. Pure poison. For many, traditional views are comfortable and anything opposed to that really threatens the way they think. There is no Santa and Easter Bunny; Jesus Christ is not God.

That brainwashing I spoke of was replacing the lies with truth backed by scripture. A few misunderstood verses or edited forgeries does not make a traditional belief  truth. No matter how much media and conversation about Santa there is, it does not reveal to the innocent child that the whole thing is a lie. We are told it is a harmless lie. How fun it is for small minds to learn they have been duped by lies that have roots in pagan holidays and fables.

 

There is much in world culture that has pagan origins.
The names of the months, the names of the days of the weeks, the
constellations, the holidays, the religions -all have pagan roots that we are
so used to that we think it is really harmless. Why so much effort to keep
pagan themes in culture? We are immersed in pagan themes and beliefs because
they counter the truth and principles of God’s Word. The truth of God’s Word is
also ingrained in culture, but there is very little. Man’s day makes man’s laws
and man rules by the rule of man’s law which is imperfect.

 

Christ-mass. A holiday (holy day). We observe both pagan and religious beliefs. The holy-day
tree has pagan roots of worship. Christ was not born in December but in the
early fall when lambs were lambing in the country he was born in. Christ-Mass
is the celebration of death -that is what a mass is, more pagan ritual woven
into ‘Christianity’. In some countries it is so ingrained that to not observe
the ‘spirit’ of the season is considered odd, while other countries are
pressured to join in, making it part of their culture. India is one.

 Now you are getting brain washed, I have exposed some of the lies and for some there is freedom and relief in that.

 

For the traditionalist mind-polluted goats, it like trying to get a dirty little boy to take a bath. Why do the heathen rage and people imagine vain things?

Jesus Christ taught truth versus tradition and it offended many. Sour Grapes: new wine in old wineskins.

 

God is good.           Jesus Christ is not God.

    rdgrnr, these are your words and they accurately describe yourself.

    "He's never responsible for anything he says. If he was a man he would stand behind what he says. But he's not and he doesn't.  He just ain't got the cojones."

    When you were asked to supply evidence to support an accusation you made against me, you refused.

    When you were asked to apologize, you refused.

    Time to grow up "little man".

    Mario, don't let this drunken hillbilly get you down.  He never shows any inclination for doing the right thing here at Lottery Post.  He is the only one dictating to everyone.  He keeps insulting just about everyone here and everyone in foreign countries.   He is the only true Nazi here.  He just opens his mouth with no conscience for truth.

    Pretty sure he must be a Scientologist!  These are exactly the kinds of tactics they use.  If you or anyone is unfamiliar with Scientology, just Google it.  There are plenty of problems with Scientology and the laws of several countries.  They just want to do, what they want to do with no regard for the laws.

    Here is another of rdgrnr's statements and again accurately describing him:

    But some people are going to be offended no matter what, simply because it's their nature and they actually enjoy being contrary.

    Naturally, he gets offended no matter who exercises their right to free speech.  He really hates that thing we call our Constitution that allows freedom of speech.  He just hates authority.  He thinks getting drunk is a good thing.  One more DUI (driving under the influence of Jack Daniels) and we won't have to hear from him for a long time!  All his friends from Brokeback Mountain, where he lives, are going to miss him.   I am sure he'll make new friends if he goes to prison.  They like guys that open their mouth - to, uh, speak.

    I posted on the 5th of June that "From here on, I'll just let you argue with yourself." ...and now two days later he still keeps arguing and lying!  Trying anything he can think of to get a response from me.  What an idiot.

    Just for the record, I voted for John McCain (a Republican) - not a liberal.  That is documented in Todd's blog and perhaps even elsewhere here.  You'd think he would try to get his facts straight.  Naw!  Too much work for him.

    Sorry your thread had to be ruined by a few blowhards.  Feel free to wave the Canadian flag, I am sure he thinks Lottery Post doesn't go anywhere but the United States!!!

      Pretty thorough summation.  I suspect your details are probably off here and there, but you've captured the essence.

        I think that if you believe it does it just gives you a nice feeling that somebody is listening to you. I don't believe that prayer works because I don't believe in the bible or any other 'holy book'. I believe there is more to us then just us but as far as 'God' 'gods' 'Allah' 'Yahweh' 'Jehovah' 'Jesus', it's all meant to entrap us and enslave us mentally. If it works for you then keep on praying and believe. Good for you! No offense to anyone. Just my 2 cents.

        Play to win!

          Hey Ridge,
                              I picked up the  two cents! What did your contraries give you?

          Should I tell them you have been driving without a license for decades or do you want to tell them?

          This sounds like a job for Col. Segue and his hot rod Lincoln !

            Allllllrighteee.  Looks like it's been a fun conversation, time to get back to lottery.  Of course, if anyone wants to continue the religious fun, they can do so on the blogs.
