Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded: Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega .. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, .. they .. have right to the tree of life, and .. enter .. the city."

God gives pastors and teachers to perfect the saints. But Christian authors and pastors write and preach different doctrines and new sermons. That is, they add and take away or pollute and deny the truth of the word of God. God says if anybody adds to or takes away from the word of God, God will take away their names from the book of life and heaven. That is, all these Christian book writers, authors, theologians, and preachers will be in the lake of fire.
We shall neither add to, nor diminish from the commandments of the Lord Jesus Christ. If we mess up the word of God, especially the preaching of the Lord Jesus Christ, God will remove us from eternal life. The commandments are the gospel that Jesus Christ preached for us to obey, for our eternal life. But churches, through their preachers, pastors, theologians, etc, teach their own doctrines instead of the doctrine of Jesus Christ. They deceive. So, God shall take away their part out of the book of life. They will lose eternal life and God will cast them into the lake of fire.
"Proverb 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. 6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar. Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book." If we add or take away from the word of God, we will be cut off from God and heaven; will suffer the wrath of God and will be destroyed eternally. But our preachers twist the word of God and preach an entirely different thing as if it is the word of God. They all will be destroyed in the lake of fire, unless they repent and change their ways. Jesus Christ says in "Matthew 15:6 ... Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. 7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me." It is the church, which is a complete fake, and they pretend that they represent God. But, actually they follow religiosity. They do that because the people in the congregation desire the preachers to be so. "2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." It will be profitable if we love the truth and do not add fables to the truth. You may read these two for more information. Links are: "False Gospel", "False Teachings".
