False Churches are not Spiritual; they twist Scriptures.

1. Most Churches are Religious, and they entertain.

Christianity is the largest among all religions. It has many denominations. Every denomination accepts the Bible as the inspired word of God at the outset. But in fact, they do not believe it. Every church including, Catholics, salvation Army, and Seventh day Adventists, admit that they are Christians. Mormons claim that Lucifer is the brother of Jesus Christ, and they worship him in their temple; yet they call themselves as the Latter-Day saints of Jesus Christ. Not only they tell this lie, but they believe their lie. Jehovah Witness people are not Christians; but they come to us with a pretense that they are also Christians. So, many kinds of Christians are there. Most of the real Christians are religious, but not Spiritual. They are far away from Christ in their life; but they entertain and put up a show as they worship Christ. In Matthew 15 Jesus says, "8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." So, Jesus says that their worship is in vain. So, the churches are not Spiritual. 

2. God became Man, Visited the Temple, a Church.

God chose Israel as his people. The people worshiped God, God gave them the tabernacle and the method to worship. They did not worship God in the way they supposed to worship. When God became a man, he visited the temple. Matthew 21:12 says: "And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, 13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves." Jesus said that the house of God, which should be 'the house of prayer', was made into a den of thieves. Matthew 24 says, "1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to show him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down." Accordingly, in 70 AD, the temple was destroyed. Do our churches deal business with money and have great buildings? If they do, they are false churches.

3. God is not a Respecter of Persons; so, Obey Him.

God repeatedly says that he is not a respecter of persons. Jesus Christ says in Matthew 8, "11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." Those who are supposedly godly people are eloquent hypocrites. God will cast them in hell and receive humble poor strangers to heaven.

Jesus Christ says in Matthew 7: "24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:... 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:" Jesus says that if we do not obey him, we will fall as the building on the sand. Yet, we claim that we are not saved by what we do, which are works. Christians reject what Jesus Christ says, and try to butter him up saying that Jesus is the rock and crying out such slogans. But those who do not obey him will fall.

4. Another Jesus and False Christs in the Bible

The true Jesus Christ converts sinners, before he accepts them in his kingdom. And he warns about false Christs. In Matthew 24:24 he says, "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." So, false Jesus Christs have power to do miracles and to show signs. They have power to heal people, prophesy (sorcery) and such, but they do not have power to convert a sinner to holy life. False Jesus Christ promises to accept sinners as they are, into God's kingdom. 2 Thessalonians 2:4 says, that false Christ "opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God." He is anti-Christ, but people think that he is Jesus Christ and worship him. So, these are false churches.

5. False Churches have the Form of Godliness.

Every church is godly in its own sight, because they have a form of godliness. The true people of God will accept the power of God and will overcome sin. False churches will deny the power of God that can deliver them from sins, they find salvation and sin in one cup, and so, they have a form of godliness. 2 Timothy 3:5 says: "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." False churches and their ministers will preach philosophy, politics, business, worldliness, world news, common sense and such things of interest. They will use Bible verses and religious clichés in the name of Jesus Christ. Colossians 2:8 says: "Beware lest any man, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ, they spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit." They attract people in so many ways except in true holiness.

6. The Field of God is filled with children of devil.

Jesus Christ told a parable about the field of God, which are worldly churches, and the devil sowed tares in these churches. The parable is in Matthew 13:24-30; and Jesus explains the parable in 36-43 to his disciples. "36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear." It began as the church of God and God filled with his people. Days and years went by. The devil began to sow the children of the devil. But God did not pluck them out but let them grow. Now the weeds, the children of the devil, almost filled the church. The wheat and the tares are allowed to grow side by side. Verse 41 says, the children of the devil will do iniquity, that is sin. So, if you sin now, you are the child of the devil, and you must repent. But the preachers say that you are saved. They promote false gospel. Jesus Christ says that the tares will be thrown into the furnace of fire and those who do righteousness will shine in the Kingdom of God. This is the typical of the present-day church; most of them are tares.

7. Let us see a few False Teachings in our Churches.

Consider taking a few sermons preached by your favorite preacher and compare it to any sermon of Jesus Christ; you may take a portion from the "sermon on the mount." If the purpose and concept of the sermons of your preacher are the same as that of Jesus Christ, then you have a good preacher. But if they contradict, then you have a false preacher. 2 Corinthians 11 says: "13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 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." These servants of Satan will not escape the wrath of God; they will be punished at the end, in the lake of fire. However, they bring damnation to many vulnerable Christians. Let me give a few examples of how the servants of Satan take advantage of certain verses to exploit and to deceive believers. I will give only the abstract substance here. So, I will provide links with them, so that you may look at the details from another page.

A. Our Righteousness Is Filthy Rags.

Most preachers quote Isaiah 64:6, which says "all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags." Then they explain this verse to us by saying that all the righteous acts of a faithful Christian appear as filthy rags in the sight of God. Most preachers know that this teaching is deceptive; and they purposely preach this scripture to deceive Christians to promote their theological doctrine. Just a few of them may teach it ignorantly. However, they are responsible for their teaching. Bible warns them not to become masters, that is not to become teachers, if it is not revealed to them, because they will be punished more severely for teaching errors. But they do it anyway, since they serve Satan. If you like to study the details, please click on these links: "Video & Transcript."

B. None Righteous, No, Not One.

Romans 3:10 says: "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" Preachers quote this verse and claim that there has been and there will be no one righteous in the whole world. They teach that righteousness is not achievable, even with the grace, power, and presence of God. They point out the phrase: 'no, not one:' it definitely includes you and me. The tragedy of this deception is that Christians, who tried to become righteous and have failed, will think that they will never become righteous; and the preachers will teach them false ways promising to go to heaven with their sins. This is what the false churches will do. For details, you may click this link. It is the same link as the above. Links: "Video & Transcript."

C. If We Say We Have No Sin, We Deceive Us.

1 John 1:8 says: "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." Preachers quote this verse and say that every human being in the whole word will continue sinning until they die. If any man claims that he, by the power of God, does not commit sin anymore, preachers will call this man a liar, quoting this verse. They humiliate godly people by calling them liars. They are children of the devil; whose conscience is dead. Please study it from scriptures. This will be a very important study. Please follow the links. Links: "Video & Transcript."

D. Apostle and We all are Wretched Sinners.

In Romans 7:24, Apostle Paul says, "O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?" In Romans 7, Apostle Paul teaches the newly converted Gentiles. In this teaching, he talked hypothetically as if he was a Gentile going through the process of conversion. The Romans were sinners and will be made godly righteous people. False preachers pick up this verse purposely and twist them for their own ruin. Please study details from the links. Links are: "Video & Transcript."

E. All have Sinned and come short of Glory.

Preachers quote "Romans 3:23, For all have sinned, (past) and come short of the glory of God;" They quote this verse but will not preach the truth in its context. In one respect, we all have sinned. But in this context, it refers to those Jews and Christians who had the word of God and did not obey them but keep living in sin. God cursed them for their abomination. But these preachers apply these verses to you and me and teach nonsense. It is deception. They weaponize such verses to deceive and exploit innocent Christians. For details, please use the links. Links are: "Video & Transcript."

F. We Were Yet Sinners, Christ Died for Us.

Romans 5:8 says: "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Preachers quote this verse, then say that we were, are, and always will be sinning. But the verse specifically says, "while we were yet sinners." WE WERE YET means that: 1) we WERE sinning, i.e., the sinning occurred in our past, so there was an end to it, and 2) since it says and implies that in the past we were sinners, it also strongly implies that we may not be, and need not be, sinners now. The details are in the above link, let me give it here also. Links: "Video & Transcript."

G. Not by Works but by Mercy He Saved Us.

Titus 3:5 says: "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us…." Preachers quote this verse and say that God saves us not because of our righteousness, but because of his mercy. But they purposely read the verses wrong, by not dividing the verse correctly, but take advantage of the verse to exploit innocent believers. Let me read the verses. "4) But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5) Not by works of righteousness which we have done," Actually the first part of the sentence ends here, and the next part of sentence begins. God became a man because we were sinning, and he wants to save us from sinning and to make us his children. "5 continues, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;" Here, God saves us by regenerating and renewing us. You may refer the links also for more details. Links: "Video & Transcript."

Such deceptive teachings are in the churches. Bottom line is that such preachers will make an ordinary believer to accommodate sin and not to be afraid of it. It may appear to be love. But, is it love to bring the wrath of God be poured upon someone? Is it not love to warn someone, who live in the philosophy to enjoy now and pay it later? If they purposely do it then it is okay. But is it okay to deceive or to trick them to live such a life? We must embrace the truth, and the truth of God is for eternal life.

Additional Notes

Our High Priest Jesus Christ rejects our Clergies.

We all agree that Jesus did not commit any sin. John 8:46, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Hebrews 4:15, 7:26, and 1 Peter 2:22, say that Jesus did no sin. However, the bible says a few more passage that we must look into. "John 5:18 says, ... the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God." So, according to the word of God, Jesus broke the law of God when he was a man. Then, Jesus reviled in Matthew 23, at the scribes and the Pharisees who sit on Moses' seat, from verse 4 until the end of the chapter, with all kinds of rebukes. He told them "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!" many times. He called them blind guides, fools, and they are full of extortion and excess. He called them whited sepulchres, killer of the prophets, Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how could they escape the damnation of hell? Even cursed them saying that their house will be left unto them desolate; might have meant even their temple. They were supposed to be the people of God and they represent God. These were too much of an insult and attack on them. How come this is not sin? Because, these are the things that God the Father told him to do. "Hebrews 10:9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second." God the Father sent him as a man, to expose them, to remove the facade of sin sacrifice, the ceremonial worship, and the system of priesthood. Jesus was just doing the will of God the Father, so it was righteousness, but it is not sin. "John 15:10 ... even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love." Jesus was obeying God the Father and abiding in his will. But Satan has re-established the priesthood back in the form of our clergy system. We happened to submit ourselves to it. But we are supposed to expose them and to tell the truth. It will not be sin in the sight of God, but of course it will not be politically correct.
