1. God became a man, the so-called followers of God killed him.

God's people were Jews, they have the temple in Jerusalem, and they were worshipping God. Priests, Scribes, and Pharisees were taking care of all the affairs of God. But they all became ungodly sinners and polluting the temple and the ways of God. 'God the Word' became a man, who was Jesus, to remove this system and to establish another system. He called out the Jews, and their leader as religious hypocrites and servants of Satan. In John 8:44 Jesus calls the so-called godly people as "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." On the outside they show themselves as worshipping God, but on the inside they were doing the work of the devil. God removed the whole temple worship system and established the Spirit Church system. "John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." Jesus Christ established Spirit Church.

Jesus called them as what they were; so, they killed Jesus, and were persecuting his disciples and followers. God raised Jesus from death, ordained him as God as before. However, God did not make it public, and only his disciples and followers knew this. So, ungodly religious people continued to persecute and kill the followers of Jesus Christ; and so, they were on the run and hiding. It was this way, since eternal life is through suffering and by persecution. That is why, Jesus Christ was not resurrected visibly to bring fear to the world to make them obey God out of fear. So, the disciples and the followers had to go in hiding as if his resurrection had no power. According to the prophesy of the lord Jesus Christ, the temple of the Jews was demolished on 70 AD; the altar, sacrifices, ceremonial worships of the temple, were all stopped; and yet Jews, false church, and Romans were persecuting the Spirit Church, who were the true followers of Jesus Christ.

2. Roman Emperor Constantine became a Worldly Christian.

Constantine became an emperor of Rome in 280 AD and reigned as a great emperor. Constantine the Great was converted to Christianity in 312 AD. His conversion was motivated by a vision he experienced in a battle at the Milvian Bridge. Whatever vision Constantine saw, he credited his victory to the Christian God, who is Jesus Christ. So, Emperor Constantine claimed conversion to Christianity, and so, religious Christianity grew in leaps and bounds. So, he made Christianity as the main religion of Rome. Constantine played an influential role in the proclamation of the Edict of Milan; it is a proclamation that permanently established religious toleration for Christians in Roman Empire in 313, with the stipulation that Christian property that had been confiscated or destroyed would be returned or compensated with funds to Christians. Emperor Constantine gave not only protection to Christians, but also lifted them to power. But unfortunately, the false Church took the opportunity, convinced emperor Constantine that they are the true Christians, and was raised to power; and so, the true Christians, the followers of Jesus Christ were persecuted again, and went underground on the hiding. However, the false Christians, gained momentum as true Christians, and Christianity spread throughout the world. Constantine called the First Council of Nicaea in 325 AD; they formed Nicene Creed. The Council of Nicaea resulted in the Christian doctrine known as the Trinity, which articulated the relationship between God and Christ. The Council voted to claim that Christ was of the identical essence of God, present at creation, and manifest (incarnated) on earth in Jesus of Nazareth; and so on. The Nicene Creed formalized one system of belief that was promoted through the power of the emperor. Nicene creed is professed by Christians even now, in traditional churches. So, we may say that Emperor Constantine is the pioneer founder of world churches; and the Roman Church branched out to thousands of churches, as Roman Catholic Church.  

3. Combining church and state by Constantine strengthened Church.

Constantine combined church and state as one. It caused further growth to Christianity, and to the evolution of its theology. The head of the church was bishop, and during the course of time, it became as Pope. So also, the Roman church became the Roman Catholic Church. The meaning of Catholic is universal, or it is under ONE, and the ONE must be Jesus Christ; he must present in his body, the Church; and out of his fullness we all must receive salvation. But Roman church was a worldly church. It branched out into many churches all around, even to neighboring countries, but all were under Rome. So, by reason of its pre-eminence, the whole Church must necessarily be in one accord, with the great Church of Rome as their basis and foundation. At the regime of Emperor Constantine, even though the Church and State were combined as one, it was not known as the Roman Catholic Church. The name was developed as time went by. Many other churches were planted, and the Roman church was the parent church; they shared communion with neighboring churches, as one; and so, it became Catholic, under the authority of the pope. Their definition of Roman Catholic Church is: "A visible society of baptized Christians professing the same faith under the authority of the invisible head Jesus Christ and the authority of the visible head pope and bishops in communion with Christ Jesus." Their definition seems very good; but Jesus Christ will be the head, only to his body; it is the Spirit Church.

4. Jesus Christ ordained Peter to build Church with the Gentiles.

"Matthew 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ." This is a controversial scripture to false preachers. However, we are not going there. Jesus proclaimed Peter to be the rock and announced Peter to build the church of Jesus Christ. Please pay attention; the church of Jesus Christ is the Spirit Church, but not the world church. But the Spirit Church is mixed within the church of the world, and unless we have discernment, we will not know it. And, the church has the keys to the kingdom of heaven, that is, the church can take someone into heaven; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it; that is, if the church want to cast someone in hell, the gates cannot prevent it. It is Spiritual reality, which is the power given by Jesus Christ himself. To emphasize this message, it says it again, in 19, "whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." So, the Spirit church has the power to eternal life, but the world church has the pompous and power on earth, even to persecute the Spirit Church on the world.

Jesus preached the sermon on the mount. He warned people saying in Matthew 7:15&20. "15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." ["Matthew 7: 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire."] Jesus said that wolves come appearing as lambs. So, do not look at their appearance and their self-proclamation of lies. It applies to preachers even now. At the time of apostles, the visible church was in transition to become the world church. Apostle Paul says in Acts 20:29-31, "29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. 31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears." So, giving warning about false preachers is an important part of preaching by Jesus Christ and his followers. But Serpents from the garden of Eden will say that we must not judge the fruits of false preachers, because they themselves are false preachers.

But Catholic tradition says that Catholic Church was founded by Jesus Christ. Another group claims that the church was founded by Peter, and he served as its first bishop, and so on. No, Emperor Constantine started the Roman Church and as time went by, the church spread around and as it became the parent church, it usurped the name Catholic to unify all churches under the Roman church. Over the course of centuries, it developed a highly sophisticated theology and an elaborate organizational structure headed by the papacy, the oldest continuing absolute monarchy of Catholic churches. Then many divisions came in Catholic church and then came protestant reformation. Now the churches may have thousand and more denominations all around the world. Now about 1/3 of the world population is Christians.    

5. Spirit Church is of Jesus; World Churches are of Theologians.

God became a man, who was Jesus of Nazareth. Soon after his water baptism by John the Baptist and with the abiding of the Holy Ghost, he announced his ministry. It is in, Luke 4:18-21. ["18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears."] He calls his disciples to himself to follow him. The condition is "Matthew 16:24. Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." So, this group is very small, twelve disciples minus Judas Iscariot, and a few women. They lived godly life. They will be with him, in eternal life as in John 12:26 and in John 14:3. ["John 12:25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. 26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."] This is on one side but let us look on the other side. Jesus preached in mountain, temple, synagogues, and everywhere, healing all kinds of diseases, doing miracles, feeding people, and so on. This group contains thousands of people. They get the benefits in the world, but eternal life was not promised to them. So, Jesus has ministered to two kinds of people in two different ways. The small group is for eternal life through sufferings, and the big group is for better life in this world, with healings, deliverance from the torment of devils, with the benefits of miracles, and such things.

["John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again."] John 3:5-7 is a common scripture that almost every church going Christian will know. It is about born of the holy Spirit, that is to receive the holy Spirit from God. ["Luke 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?"] Luke 11:13 says. if we ask God with repentance, God will give the Holy Spirit as a gift, and we must receive this gift to go to heaven, that is to inherit eternal life. There are more gifts, which are the gifts of the Holy Ghost. This comes with the baptism of the Holy Ghost. ["1 Corinthians 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. 8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: 11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will."] 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 gives an account of these gifts. God the Holy Ghost gives these gifts to do ministry by the open visible church. These gifts are neither needed, nor they will take us to heaven to inherit eternal life. But these are useful to show the manifestations of God, to church growth, and for people to know about God. So, God calls this church as schoolmaster, to bring people to Christ. These gifts are also given to rebellious people as in Psalm 68:18. ["Psalm 68:18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among them."] Godly life may not be the outcome of these gifts. So, gifts of the Holy Ghost are for world Church, and Holy Spirit as gift is given to Spirit Church for eternal life.

The worldly church is systematically established and one of their strengths is the study of theology. Christians think that theology is study of scriptures. No, it is not; but it is the study about religion, and a few verses are taught with a twist in it. Theologians are taught by the Old Serpent, who taught the word of God to Eve, and caused Even and Adam to disobey God, and they were destroyed. The same Serpent, Satan is the teacher to the theologians to teach false doctrines to the world Churches. There are thousands of denominations in the world church, and they all twist scriptures in thousands of ways, calling each other as false to impress that they are true. We belong to protestant denominations, and so, we study the theology after Martin Luther, John Calvin, and such theologians. They are of the world Church. They will not inherit eternal life, neither they could lead anybody to eternal life. But they are decorations and glory to various churches. But they are enemies to Christ. If we study about them, we must know that they are of Satan. If we do not know the wholesome word, they will trap us very easily as the Serpent did to Eve. Beware of their doctrine. Follow the life of Jesus and inherit the kingdom of God in heaven.

Looking for the true gospel? This site has the true gospel!

What is the true gospel and what are false gospels?

Matthew 28:20, & Mark 16:15. Jesus Christ preached his commandments to obey, as his Gospel; it is the true Gospel to inherit Eternal life. Genesis 3:1-4 & 2 Corinth 11:2-4. But Preachers, who are Serpents of Satan, preach the life of man Jesus just to believe, but not to live as a chaste virgin, as the gospel; it is another gospel, which cannot and will not give Eternal life.

What will the true Gospel do?

The true gospel will convert evil people to do good and thereby they will inherit the kingdom in heaven. John 3:19-21 say that people are two kinds, evil and true. Evil doers will not come to the Light, who is God; but people of truth come to God for their deeds to be made manifest. We have good and evil people by our standard of our society or culture. These evil people may be converted to be doers of truth by the power of God, and they may inherit the kingdom of God in heaven.
