Isaiah.8 there is NO LIGHT in those who do not SPEAK that which is written.
Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist
is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it
is the last hour.” (1 John 2:18)
Trinitarians are AntiChrists because they claim that the Spirit OF
Christ is another god person making them polytheists. There is one god
the Father and one Lord Jesus Christ. God made Jesus TO BE BOTH Lord and
Christ to refute the always-pagan father, mother (spirit, dove) and
infant, helpless and perverted son worshipped at Mount Sinai.
is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the
antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the
Son has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also.” (1 John 2:22-23)
every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the
spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the
world already.” (1 John 4:3)
Confessing that Jesus is the Christ will automatically be baptized FOR
or in order to the remission of sins: those who deny that Baptism saves
us because that is the PLAN of Jesus prophesied in Isaiah 1 and
fulfilled is ANTI Christ.
many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess
the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and
the antichrist.” (2 John 1:7)
The craftsmen, singers and instrument players in Revelation 18 are called SORCERERS who HAD DECEIVED the whole world. "Evil men set their lies to melodies to deceive the simple minded."
THEOLOGY in Churches of Christ replaced Schools of the Bible is
ANTICHRISTIAN because THEOLOGY is applied only to the end time
unleashing of Abaddon or Apollon and the Locusts which are MUSES:
Apollon is the leader of the musical worship teams.
B. Neo-pentecostalism broke out in many of the liberal churches. In 1973
there was a shakeup at Highland church in Abilene. E. R. Harper, the
preacher there when “Herald of Truth” started, and who along with Bro.
Yater Tant conducted the first public debate on the issue, was fired and
one of the elders, W. F. Cawyer, resigned. Others later resigned. There
was “tongue speaking” in the church! Because of this, many hundreds of
churches discontinued their support of “Herald of Truth”.
Dec. 1988, “the Nashville meeting”. Hundreds of “institutional” and
“non-institutional” brethren met to hear a program of representative
speakers on “the issues”, and to ask questions. From the more liberal
speakers there emerged a plea for a “new hermeneutics” (a new set of rules for interpreting the Bible). For these ultra-liberals, direct statement, apostolic example, and necessary inference, for establishing authority, can no longer be accepted.
1. The “expanded role for women” was introduced and
pushed. Now there are women filling the pulpits and women elders are
beginning to be installed. All this is an avenue to pure, classical
modernism. More and more of the Bible is being discarded as the verbally
inspired word of God. A young Ph.D., Andre Resner, of Abilene Christian
University, in an article entitled, “Christmas at Matthew’s House”,
wrote that Mary was a sexually questionable woman, and called Matthew,
sneaky! This is pure modernism!
2. The Nashville Jubilee (Inc.), which is really from its incipiency a corporation, had its beginning in 1989. Associated with its name in the beginning was the Madison church of Christ, and Rubel Shelley. Max
Lucado’s services were employed in the 1994 Jubilee to enhance
interest. 10,000 were expected for attendance. Change agents were
employed to conduct seminars. The leaders of the Jubilee also have been
editors and writers for the publication, “Wineskins”, which promotes a constant barrage on conservatism.
Mike Cope boasts
1989-and-churches-of-christ1989 was an interesting time in Churches of
Christ. Three books had just been published that stirred the
conversation: Discovering our Roots and Illusions of Innocence by Leonard Allen and Richard Hughes, and The Worldly Church by Leonard, Richard, and Michael Weed. (In 1990 Leonard’s The Cruciform Church would come out; and in 1996 Richard’s Reviving the Ancient Faith: The Story of Churches of Christ in America would be published.)
Let the truth of these words by Allen and Hughes (Illusions) set in:
In May, I did the opening night keynote at Pepperdine, introducing the
book of Exodus. I called it “One Thing Worse Than Bondage.” (Want to
guess?) Oliver Howard taught a packed house in Smothers Theater on the
topic, “Maintaining Unity in the Face of Divisive Controversies.”
Another major class, taught by Randy Mayeux was entitled, “A Local
Minister Responds to the Warnings of The Worldly Church.”
“The restoration perspective has worked in American life in two
important ways. Some Americans have enshrined first times as an ideal
to be approximated and even as a kind of transcendent norm that stands
in judgment on the ambiguities of the present age. In this case, the
myth of first times has been a beacon summoning Americans to perfection.
On the other hand, some Americans have fully identified their
religious denomination or even their nation itself with the purity of
first times. The illusion thereby fostered in the minds of these
Americans is that they are an innocent and fundamentally natural people
who, in effect, have stepped outside of history, thereby escaping the
powerful influences of history, culture, and tradition. These Americans
therefore have often confused the historic particularities of their
limited experience with universal norms that should be embraced, they
have thought, by all people in all cultures and all times.”
Then in July, I gave the opening keynote of the first Nashville Jubilee —
again on fellowship (and again a topic that I was asked to speak on).
That time, some Nashville church — or perhaps it was a few churches —
took out an ad in the Nashville paper (I kid you not!) to attack my
speech. For reasons I still don’t understand — though I think just
because it was such a large gathering of a group that doesn’t normally
have “conventions” — there were summaries of that message everywhere
from Christianity Today to the New York Times. Again, I kid you not.
I mentioned these three books. However, the discussion had begun a few
years before. The real shot across the bow came from a Nashville
preacher. It was entitled I Just Want to Be a Christian. Anyone remember that?
MARKS OF THE BABYLON MOTHER OF HARLOTS
From Clay Tablets onward there have been TWO STREAMS of religious
merchants (selling learning at retail or prostitutes says Paul). The
Abilene Kingdom claims to have received 'a' spirit which lets them see
beyond the sacred pages and call its writer a liar. The
"personified" spirit is named Abaddon or Apollon and it appears that
he-she has been unleashed with the locusts or muses (Richard Beck didn't

and a shameful way of bestowing them.
For to offer
one's beauty for money to all comers is called prostitution;
think it virtuous to become friendly with
a lover who is known to be a
man of honour.
So is it with wisdom. Those who offer it to all comers
are known as sophists, prostitutors of wisdom,
But we think
that he who makes a friend of one whom he knows to be gifted
by nature, and teaches him all the good he can,
fulfils the duty of a citizen and

For among the provisions,
you know, in which these men deal, not only are they themselves
ignorant what is good or bad for the body, since in selling they
commend them all, but the people who buy from them are so too, unless
one happens to be a trainer or a doctor. And in the same way, those who
take their doctrines the round of our cities, hawking them about to any
odd purchaser who desires them, commend everything that they sell, and
there may well be some of these too, my good sir, who are ignorant
which of their wares is
good or bad for the soul;
and in just the same case are the people who buy from them, unless one
happens to have a doctor's knowledge here also, but of the soul. So
then, if you are well informed as to what is good or bad among these
wares, it will be safe for you to buy doctrines from Protagoras or from
anyone else you please: but if not, take care, my dear fellow, that you
do not risk your greatest treasure on a toss of the dice.
Cyrus was told how to NEUTER captives to keep them under control. Power grabbing preachers who want to be MASTERS (Authoratative Teachers) have KEEPING THEM UNDER CONTROL is absolutely necessary less they grasp that Jesus died to pry the burden laders off our backs: the Laded Burdens are types of repeating songs which perform the act of WITCHCRAFT with a boiling pot of frog yes.
