7). A – True – (Jesus Christ declares in Matthew 6:15 in the New Testament, “But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses”)
 
8). B – False – (Mark 10:18 in New Testament states, “And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God”, while Ecclesiastes 7:20 says, “For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not”)
 
9). A – False – (Jesus Christ says in John 14:6 in the New Testament, “I Am The Way, The Truth, and The Light, No-One Comes To The Father [The Lord In Heaven] But By Me”).
 
10). B – True – (Hebrews 11:16 in New Testament states, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”)
 
11). B – False – (Matthew 7:21-23 in the New Testament boldly declares, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity)
 
12). A – False – (All of these “sects/denominations” follow a FALSE/SATANIC/BLASPHEMOUS from of so-called “Christianity” that will take a person straight to HELL/ETERNAL CONDEMNATION, unless they REPENT way, way BEFORE the “Day of Judgement” of Jesus Christ Almighty! And the Day of Judgement will be here before ya know it! We’re living in the LAST DAYS, people! WAKE UP!)

In other words, Paul is more or less saying right there, “Don’t let the non-believers or the PAGANIZED CHRISTIANS judge YOU, the JUDEO-Christian, when it comes to YOU still celebrating in the LORD’S BIBLICAL 7th Day Sabbaths (Saturday) AND the Lord’s BIBLICAL feasts (Tabernacles, Passover, etc.) and in following the LORD’S BIBLICAL FOOD LAWS (no pork, etc.)” Why? Because the biblical feasts and the biblical Sabbath were both a foreshadowing of Christ (in the Old Testament) AND fulfilled in Jesus Christ in the New Testament & beyond! Make sense, people?)

18). B – False – {If the book of Revelation were only metaphorical, that would say that Jesus Christ was a complete liar, that the Devil and Evil didn’t exist in this world, and that all of fulfilled bible prophecy was just “mere coincidence”. And for those people out there that believe that Revelation happened ALREADY, if THAT were true, all of mankind would’ve been “Eternally Judged” by Jesus Christ, already! Think about it, folks!}

19). A – True – (Today’s “Christianity” is based off Roman Catholicism and Roman Catholicism is based off Babylonian “Sun worship” and “Pagan precepts” — Research the TRUE HISTORY of Christianity and the Roman Catholic Church if you don’t believe me!!!!!) 

20). E – Old Testament Saul was a King of Israel during the times of the Old Testament, whom was later replaced by King David! New Testament Saul was originally a “persecutor” of “Christians/Judeo-Christians” who later experienced a supernatural experience and thus, became a “Judeo-Christian convert” and is thought to have written most of the New Testament!

21). A – TRUE – (Today’s “Christianity” sprung forth out of Roman Catholicism and Roman Catholicism sprung forth out of Babylonian PAGANISM! Need I say anything more, folks? DO THE RESEARCH WHILE YOU STILL CAN! TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE, PEOPLE! We never know when we’re gonna die! Don’t DIE in the sins of  a FALSE/PAGAN/SATANIC “church model”. Learn about the TRUE “Jewish” Jesus Christ while you still can! MARK MY WORDS!)

22). B – Moses & Noah were both in the Old Testament, while Jesus Christ’s birth was described in the New Testament

23). C – Abraham & Sarah were supernaturally blessed by God through their miracle son, Isaac, whom God made an everlasting covenant with, saying to Abraham in Genesis 12:3, “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

28). C – True – For if one or both marriage partners were of the SAME gender or had undergone a “transition” or sex change, the Lord would define that as SODOMY/UN-NATURAL/UNBIBLICAL/AN ABOMINATION since it would be a “mocking” of HIS “natural design” of males and females and “natural procreation”.

In fact, Jesus Christ himself addressed this very topic in Matthew 19:4-6 when he stated, And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and femaleAnd said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder

Thanks and may you all have a blessed, wonderful day in the name of the Lord! 😉  

Constantine: Satan’s Homeboy [CHURCH BUILDINGS ARE UNBIBLICAL!!!!!!]

Many well-meaning “Christians” today dress up in their Sunday-best, file into church every Sunday morning, sit down at the pews trying ever-so-hard to look dignified, and then stare straight ahead to “listen to” the choir and/or the priest/pastor.  And every so often in church, they take part of the “communion table”, answer an “altar call”, “put money into the offering plate”, etc.

And they feel perfectly comfortable while doing so, because hey, it’s “tradition”, right?

Now think about that word for awhile: tradition. Let it sink in. Meditate on it for awhile. The Miriam-Webster dictionary defines “tradition” as: “a way of thinking, behaving, or doing something that has been used by the people in a particular group, family, society, etc., for a long time; Cultural continuity in social attitudes, customs, and institutions, etc.”

Okay, now lets turn to the bible to see what Jesus Christ Almighty had to say about the word tradition:

And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition – Mark 7:9

But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?“- Mark 15:3

Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” – Mark 15:6b-9

“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” – Luke 6:46

So in other words, ALL modern-day church buildings (ALL OF THEM, NO EXCEPTIONS) have “transgressed the law of God” to follow man’s OWN TRADITION!!! Because the bible actually CONDEMNS “church buildings”.

Please remember that in Matthew 27:51 “And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent”. Translation? THE TEMPLE WAS NO LONGER NEEDED AS JESUS CHRIST *HIMSELF* BECAME THE TEMPLE, ALONG WITH THE *BODY OF BELIEVERS*!

So BECAUSE of this, 1st century Christians were smart and HAD no “buildings” to meet in but rather, met in private homes of about the small size of 5-35 people or so. And several “house gatherings” were had throughout the city of Jerusalem. But they did NOT consider themselves “separate groups/denominations” like you see today. Rather, they were ONE group, ONE believing body. EVERY single person was treated equally and given the “ability” to “minister” onto all the others. That way, they each brought their OWN insights from the Lord TO the meeting and EVERYONE maintained eye contact with one another and benefited. They were all equal in the eyes of Jesus Christ Almighty and Jesus Christ Almighty HIMSELF was the “head of the church, the *chief cornerstone* and the head of the *gathering*!

{And please note: Many people think that Constantine made it so that “Christians” weren’t persecuted anymore, PERIOD. But that’s just simple not true, folks! What Constantine did — along with the help of “Catholic bishops” — is PERSECUTE the *TRUE CHRISTIANS* (those who held to the BIBLICAL “Jewish precepts” of their religion! So YES……..TRUE/BIBLICAL CHRISTIANS were STILL persecuted under the “rule” of Constantine, unfortunately……}

However, the start of the “church building” (where the “priest/pastor” was considered ABOVE the “laity” and where the “laity” were SILENCED and NOT ALLOWED TO SPEAK, etc.) began with Constantine. Sadly, many Christians and historians today tout Constantine as the “great hero” and “spreader of Christianity all throughout the Roman Empire” but what they DON’T realize is THIS: the TYPE of “Christianity” that Constantine “spread all throughout the Roman Empire” was a FALSE RELIGIOUS SYSTEM based on PAGAN PRECEPTS!

The truth is, Constantine no doubt “admired” many of the “Pagan temples” he saw around the Roman Empire and came up with the MORTAL IDEA that “hey, Christians should have THEIR own building to worship in, as well”, even going so far as to MODEL these “basilicas” AFTER the “Pagan temples” of his day. He also saw Jesus AS the Sun god, Helios, and inserted sun god symbols all throughout the basilicas and even went so far (during the 325AD or so Council of Nicea) to CHANGE GOD’S HOLY, SANCTIFIED 7TH DAY SABBATH to SUN-DAY (venerable worship day of the SUN), so he could CONTINUE to worship the “sun god, Helios” in the IMAGE of Jesus Christ! (BLASHPHEMY!!!!)

And not only THAT, but it gets much worse, historical wise. At the 365AD Council of Laodicea, it even BECAME A CRIME to worship on the Lord’s TRUE *biblically-mandated* 7th-Day Sabbath and ALSO to celebrate in the Lord’s (once again) *biblically-mandated* 7 Annual Feasts (such as Passover, Pentecost, Feast of Tabernacles, etc.) In addition to fasting, praying or eating of “unleavened bread”. On the other hand, “Christians/Jews” of that that time were COMMANDED by Constantine/Catholic bishop/other Roman imperial leaders to eat UNCLEAN FOODS (such as pork), to worship on PAGAN holidays (such as Christmas, Easter, etc.) and to WORK on the 7th Day Sabbath and REST on Sun-Day, which was all CLEARLY CONDEMNED IN THE BIBLE!

And IF a Christian/Jewish person refused to comply with Constantine’s demands, they were PUNISHED (most times, imprisoned/executed). So tell me. Is Constantine “such a great hero” in your mind, NOW? HE, along with the Catholic Church, PERSECUTED THE LORD’S TRUE PEOPLE!

And one of the REASONS Constantine was so successful to get people AWAY from true biblical, Jewish-roots Christianity is because Anti-Jewish sentiment was HIGH at that time. Why? Because the “Christians” blamed the JEWS for the execution of Jesus Christ! So they saw all Jews as “evil” and wanted to have nothing to do with “all things Jewish”. Constantine, in retrospect, took high advantage of this and decided that the Lord’s commands in the bible were “Jewish only” and NO LONGER APPLIED TO THE LORD’S PEOPLE (that is, to say, “Christians”).

However, a few “Christians” out there were wise enough to defy the attack on the Lord’s people and the Lord’s commandments and REFUSED to obey Constantine and/or the Roman Catholic Church (and many payed with their very own LIVES for it!) Today, those people are known as Jewish-roots Christians, Messianic Christians, Jewish Christians, Christian Jews, or Judeo-Christians, respectively.

Truth be told, Constantine, like the Roman Catholic Church, HATED the real, true, biblical Jesus Christ, and the Lord’s law and the Lord’s people. Almost as much as Hitler did, if not more so!

Basically, the made the “Christianity” of today nothing more than BABYLONIAN/PAGAN SUN WORSHIP, REPACKAGED.

So people: I beg of you! GET OUT OF THE CHURCHES AND THE “CHURCH SYSTEM” WHILE YOU STILL CAN! Your eternal salvation depends on it, MARK MY WORDS!!!!!

And remember that, during the time of the White Throne Judgement, Jesus Christ is going to say to/about MANY, MANY, MANY people in Matthew 7:21-13:

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heavenMany will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”

Plus remember that Matthew 7:21 is a FOLLOW-UP to Luke 6:46 which states: “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”

[Now, is that to say that a true body of believers/assembly in Christ CAN’T meet in a church building every week? No. Not necessarily…….It just means that they can’t CALL the “church building” the “house of God”, and they also can’t SAY they are “going TO church” (if they want to be TRULY biblically accurate) for each believer in Christ IS “the church”.

Also as well: if EACH person gets to say their own individual input into what the Lord has taught them that week, that’s considered a biblical model of worship. Some might say that sermons are okay because “each person” gets to speak individually during bible study.

But “sermons” (as a whole) are still biblically inaccurate since a) it sets the “laity” above the churchgoers, and the bible says ALL believers are considered “equal”, in importance and are called “ministers unto God/Jesus Christ” and b) the institutionalized church service is a solemn assembly when the bible says “church gatherings” are supposed to be a JOYOUS assembly, REJOICING in Jesus Christ’s resurrection & ascension, while ALSO talking about the important of repentance of sins! and c) “the church”, that is, the body of believers in Christ — as a whole — are supposed to go out INTO the world to preach the gospel and not “hide” behind 4 walls every week!]

If you’ve EVER sat through a church service and wondered why it is you don’t seem to be growing at all in your spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ or why you feel like you’re just going through the motions, etc., then the following book is for YOU!

As Christians, we can either CONTINUE with “tradition” as is and be led on the path to eternal darkness, keep going to church every SUN-DAY and following “Pagan traditions of men”, thus taking the “blue pill”.

OR……..we (as Christians) can choose to be enlightened, shown what the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ is, have a TRUE life-changing spiritual relationship with him, and DEFY all things Pagan, and read (and APPLY) the following 2 books……..thus taking the “red pill” [realizing the “reality” of modern-day church traditions].

[Note: The “blue pill” and “red pill” are a reference to the movie called “The Matrix”. In the movie, the character Neo is more or less told: “take the blue pill and you can go back to your life, believing whatever you want to believe, and follow in your own tradition – but take the red pill, and you will see just how far down the rabbit hole [of reality] goes”].

PAGAN CHRISTIANITY and it’s SEQUEL…. PAGAN CHRISTIANITY2
