"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."

Preachers usually select a few segments from the Bible, use them to create their own doctrine, then preach a message different than what is in the Bible. They use words like grace, faith, works, salvation, etc, and teach their own opinions; but their opinions do not match the meaning from the Bible. Most preachers are ignorant of the word of God, because they learn from church books and from the books of famous men. They became famous, not because they were truthful and godly, but they were popular and politically or religiously correct. They were heroes, but not truth lovers. So, eventually all these preachers became liars, instead of godly men. These preachers appear to be servants of God, but they actually serve Satan. "2 Corinthians 11:13 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." 2 Timothy 3:5 says, that they are "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." So, we must study the truth rather than settling for fake and counterfeit meanings that they preach. A lab or pharmacy will have many medicines. If a person got into the pharmacy and changed the labels on the containers of the medicines, then those who receive the medicines will either get more sick or will even die instead of getting well. The Bible, the word of God, has so many words to communicate to sinners so that they may get well, that is, they may be saved. But Satan and his servants (preachers) changed the meaning of the words of the Bible, in order to make the sinners worse or even to kill them (spiritually). The labs are the churches. Satan has changed the meaning of the words in the Bible in so many ways and poisoned all churches, and there is none left with correct medicine. Now, it is the responsibility of the people to get into a good Bible version (not polluted versions), and study it for themselves if they want to know the truth of the Bible. King James Version (KJV) and American Standard Version, are the good ones that I know. New International Version (NIV) is very popular and it is promoted by almost all churches, but it is the worst poison. So, avoid it.
Jesus Christ is the Word as well as Spirit. So also, the Bible is text as well as Spirit. The spirit gives life, but the text gives knowledge. Most Christians study to understand the text. Only a few Christians study the Bible so that they may receive the Spirit, which is the life in Christ. Do you want to know the Truth and to receive the Spirit? Please keep studying the TRUTH. Don't ever settle for lie of deception.
Further, our preachers preach to believe the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as the gospel to receive eternal life. But, believing what Jesus Christ has done, will take nobody to heaven. So, this is not the gospel, even though his death and resurrection are true. We must do what Jesus Christ told us to do, to inherit heaven. This is the gospel of Jesus Christ. But, the devil tells us not to obey God, saying that nobody can obey God. The devil tells us, just to believe that Jesus Christ will take us to heaven, then Jesus Christ will take us to heaven. The devil calls this as faith. Further, the devil says that God did not spare his own Son, but delivered him up for us all on the cross, and how will he not give us all things, including heaven (eternal life) to us freely? The devil calls this as unconditional love of God. Since we are brain-washed with these statements, we believe them. As convincing as they are, these are twists from the Bible and they are lies of the devil. Nobody will receive eternal life for believing what God has done or by believing the twisted statements of preachers and of the devil. These are false gospels. The devil uses preachers to preach the counterfeit gospels. But, we must do, what Jesus Christ told us to do, in order to go to heaven or to inherit eternal life. But, if we believe the preachers or the devil, we will be deceived and will go to hell.
I will reply promptly.Thanks.
