TOP TEN RELIGIOUS FALLACIES ABOUT THE HOLY BIBLE
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14 (KJV)
The Holy Bible COMMANDS that Christians study to shew themselves approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, and this is done by rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV). As one great preacher states “light rejected becomes lighting”. Those who reject God’s commandment to rightly divide His Holy Book constantly fall victim to several foolish religious fallacies that either attempt to make a liar out of God (Numbers 23:19 KJV), or attempts to make God out to be the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33 KJV).
The entire Bible is written FOR Christians, as in it’s all given by inspiration. But the entire Bible is not written TO Christians.
The Holy Bible specifically warns the believer that NO prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20 KJV) because interpretations belong to God (Genesis 40:8 KJV). The Lord has very basic rules established in his word to the believer that guarantees the proper/correct interpretation of the scripture without the fear of deception.
Those rules are:
BELIEVE that his word is literally HIS word (1 Thess 2:13 KJV)
DO NOT add to his words (Proverbs 30:5-6 KJV)
DO NOT subtract from his words (Deuteronomy 4:2 KJV)
KEEP his words in context (Isaiah 28:9-14 KJV)
Observe how the Devil was able to deceive Eve in the Garden by FIRST getting Eve slowly reject the words that God had CLEARLY stated. In Genesis 3:1 KJV, the Devil first got Eve to QUESTION God’s words (Violation of rule #1). Next, the Devil got Eve to SUBTRACT from God’s words (Genesis 3:2 KJV) by omitting the word “freely” (Violation of rule #3). Finally, the Devil got Eve to ADD to God’s words by claiming that God said not to touch the tree (Genesis 3:3 KJV), Violation of rule #2.
NOTICE: Once the Devil got Eve to QUESTION God’s words, SUBTRACT from God’s words, and finally ADD to God’s words, THEN the Devil was able to get Eve to BELIEVE THE LIE (Genesis 4:4 KJV). And such is the foundation of EVERY religious fallacy regarding the Holy Bible. In order to believe the following religious fallacies, you must violate at least one, if not all of God’s rules regarding his words.
RELIGIOUS FALLACY #1 – People were saved the same exact way in the Old Testament as they are in the New Testament
This religious fallacy has also been referred to as “the scarlet thread” or “people in the OT looked forward to the cross while people in the NT looked back at the cross”. Doctrinally speaking, that is a lie. Romans 10:9 KJV is NEVER preached as the plan of salvation in the OT. Adam’s promise of eternal life was based on not eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Gen 2:17 KJV), not faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV). God told Cain and Abel to offer the sacrifice (Genesis 4 KJV). God told Noah to build a boat (Genesis 6 KJV). No one in the OT was born-again (1 Peter 1:23 KJV). No one in the OT was spiritually circumcised (Colossians 2:11-14 KJV). No one in the OT was a member of the body of Christ (Ephesians 5:32 KJV). You have to continually ADD and SUBTRACT from God’s words to hold to such a fallacy.
RELIGIOUS FALLACY #2 – The entire Bible is written TO Christians
The entire Bible is written FOR Christians, as in it’s all given by inspiration (2 Timothy 3:16 KJV). But the entire Bible is not written TO Christians. For example: A Christian can learn about the Holiness of God by reading and studying the Levitical laws and the judgements thereof; but a Christian is NEVER told TO literally build a tabernacle or temple and offer animal sacrifices. There are certain scriptures written or addressed TO Gentiles before the Law (Adam, Eve, Noah, Cain, Abel), Jews before the Law (Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Judah), Gentiles under the Law (Uriah the Hittite and Balaam), Jews under the law (Moses, Joshua, David), Christians under grace (believers today), Jews and Gentiles in the time of Jacob’s trouble (Revelations 14:12 KJV), and Jews and Gentiles in the Millennial Reign (Zechariah 13:1-3 KJV). Once again, God COMMANDS believers to Rightly Divide the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV). This fallacy in particular is responsible for about 99% of all heresies today.
RELIGIOUS FALLACY #3 – The body of Christ will NOT be caught away before the time of Jacob’s Trouble
Commonly referred to as the pre-trib vs post-trib rapture debate. Once again, this fallacy come from a complete failure to Rightly Divide the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV) on the post tribbers part. The Apostle Paul specifically wrote that the catching away of the body of Christ (1 Thess 4:16 KJV) BEFORE the time of Jacob’s trouble (1 Thess 5:9 KJV) was a MYSTERY Christ revealed to him (1 Corinthians 15:51), and was NOT revealed during Christ’s earthly ministry (John 16:12 KJV). If it was revealed during Christ’s earthly ministry, then it wouldn’t have been a MYSTERY (Romans 16:25 KJV). However post-tribbers cannot cease from ADDING to God’s words as they’ll continually run to Matthew 24, Luke 21, and Mark 13 in attempts to FORCE those passages on the body of Christ, falling for RELIGIOUS FALLICY # 2.
RELIGIOUS FALLACY #4 – Jesus and Paul preached the SAME GOSPEL
Most religious fallacies come from a failure to Rightly Divide and or ADDING to God’s words. But honestly this fallacy simply come from pure laziness. Jesus preached the gospel of the Kingdom (Matthew 4:23 KJV). The Apostle Paul preached the gospel of the grace of God (Acts 20:24 KJV).
OBSERVE – What the Lord Jesus Christ preached:
“And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS.” Matthew 19:16,17 (KJV)
OBSERVE – What the Apostle Paul preached:
“And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be SAVED, and thy house.” Acts 16:30,31 (KJV)
THEY’RE NOT THE SAME GOSPEL.
RELIGIOUS FALLACY #5 – If you believe in eternal security (Once Saved always Saved), it’s simply because you want to live a sinful life.
This fallacy comes from pride and ignorance of scripture. Mostly a fallacy always committed by the holiness heretics who like to minimize sin to smoking, drinking, cussing, fornication, and homosexuality. The Apostle Paul wrote that the body of Christ is SEALED unto the day of redemption (Ephesians 4:30 KJV). However the Christian’s liberty is not a liberty to sin, but liberty to serve God without the fear of being cast into Hell every time a believer messes up. Perfect love cast out fear (1 John 4:18 KJV). Most Pharisees that fall for this fallacy either believe that A) the works that they’re doing is good enough to get them into Heaven or B) Nobody can be saved unless they live exactly how their cult teaches.
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14 (KJV)
RELIGIOUS FALLACY #6 – God sends babies to Hell
This taboo subject is often kept under wraps today by whorish mother church (Rev 17:1-7 KJV) and any other denomination or doctrine that holds to infant baptism. This position has historically been one of the main reasonings behind the torture and mass killings of the martyrs of Christ. Whorish mother church calls it “Limbo”, but since the teaching of Limbo is completely absent from Scripture (as well as any and all sacraments), the eternal destination they TRULY speak of is Hell. However don’t just take my word for it, hear it from the Hellish council:
The Council of Florence: “With regard to children, since the danger of death is often present and the only remedy available to them is the Sacrament of Baptism by which they are snatched away from the dominion of the devil and adopted as children of God, it admonishes that sacred baptism is not to be deferred for forty or eighty days or any other period of time in accordance with the usage of some people, but it should be conferred as soon as it conveniently can; and if there is imminent danger of death, the child should be baptized straightaway without any delay, even by a lay man or woman in the form of the Church, if there is no priest, as is contained more fully in the decree on the Armenians.” (Decree for the Jacobites, Denz. 696)
The Council of Trent: “And this translation [i.e. this going from the state of original sin to the state of grace], since the promulgation of the Gospel, cannot be effected without the laver of regeneration, or the desire thereof, as it is written: unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.” (Session VI, chapter 4) The Council also says: “If any one should say that baptism is free, that is, not necessary unto salvation, let him be anathema.” (Session VII, can. 5)
The Council of Florence Session VI: But the souls of those who depart this life in actual mortal sin, or in original sin alone, go down straightaway to hell to be punished, but with unequal pains. This same doctrine is found in the Confession of Faith, as well in the Profession of Faith given to the Greeks by Pope Gregory XIII, and in that which was prescribed for the oriental schismatics by Popes Urban VIII and Benedict XIV.
In Holy Bible, the false god Molech was the false god that burned babies in fire! The Lord never eternally damned those with no knowledge of good and evil, and the Lord didn’t hold those with no knowledge of good and evil personally accountable for sins.
“Also the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, saying, Thou also shalt not go in thither. But Joshua the son of Nun, which standeth before thee, he shall go in thither: encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it. Moreover your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, and your children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go in thither, and unto them will I give it, and they shall possess it.” Deuteronomy 1:37-39 (KJV)
According to the Holy Bible, even though all men are born dead in trespasses and sins, sin is NOT imputed where there is no law. (Romans 5:13 KJV). How does a baby or an intellectually disabled person know what the law is in relation to God? They don’t! They’re completely innocent because where there is no law there is NO TRANSGRESSION (Rom 4:15 KJV). To expound upon it more, the Apostle Paul states that he was alive without the law once, but when the commandment came, sin revived and he died (Rom 7:9-11 KJV). Every baby is alive without the law, having no knowledge of good and evil, being innocent before God. But when that child reaches the point in their life when they understand what sin is in relation to God, the law will declare them to be sinners, dead in trespasses in sins, and in need of a Savior. Until then however, the baby or child is declared innocent in God’s sight; and absent from the body, present with the Lord the very second death should fall upon them before the law declares them accountable.
RELIGIOUS FALLACY #7 – Everybody is a child of God
I’m beginning to hear this fallacy more and more these days. Most people use this fallacy as reason to reject Christ and his Holy Book. Sort of implying “I’m a child of God, born after God’s image, therefore God loves me just how I am.” This however is totally contrary to Scripture. If you’re lost, you are not a child of God. You’re a child a wrath, a child of disobedience, that’s alone in the world without hope and without God (Eph 2:1-12 KJV). Israel is God’s firstborn as a physical nation (Exodus 4:22-23 KJV), but outside of that, we’re talking saved and lost.
ADAM was born in the image of God seeing how he was perfect AND had three parts to him (trinity): body, soul, and spirit (Genesis 2:7 KJV). But after Adam sinned, his son Seth was born after ADAM’s image and likeness (Gen 5:3 KJV). In short, every man born after Adam’s fall still has three part to him (like God), but man is now dead in trespasses and sins in Adam’s image (not God), and in Adam ALL DIE (1 Corinthians 15:22 KJV). Therefore, every single lost man walking the earth today has a live body, live soul, and a DEAD spirit; and that lost man MUST be born again to become a child of God (John 3 KJV). Every man that has been born-again (Christian), has a DEAD body (Galatians 2:21 KJV), LIVE Spirit (John 3:6 KJV) and a SEALED soul (Eph 1:13/ Eph 4:30).
RELIGIOUS FALLACY #8 – God loves everybody (present tense)
One of the most prevalent lies the Devil has floating around in the last days and the main calling card for the Charismania cult. I hear it from false teachers on television and radio constantly. They always start or end their broadcast by saying “remember, God loves you.”
LISTEN: If you’re lost and reading this article, pay very close attention to what I’m going to say: GOD’S LOVE IS NOT ABIDING ON YOU, GOD’S WRATH IS (John 3:36 KJV). If you’re lost and want to experience God’s love, mercy, and forgiveness…RUN TO CALVARY…NOW! ALL of God’s love for sinners is spoken PAST TENSE and or points to CALVARY for a reason:
John 3:16 KJV For God so LOVED the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Romans 5:8 KJV But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (CALVARY)
2 Corinthians 5: 21 KJV For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (CALVARY)
1 Thessalonians 4:14 KJV For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. (CALVARY)
John 3:36 KJV He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
John 3:18 KJV He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not IS condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Psalms 7:11 KJV God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked EVERY DAY
RELIGIOUS FALLACY #9 – Jesus Christ’s earthly ministry was primarily to everybody.
Wrong. Jesus Christ’s earthly ministry was primarily to the JEWS (Matthew 10:5-6 KJV). The physical Jews are God’s chosen people (Deu 7:6 KJV). Jesus said that salvation is of the Jews (John 4:22 KJV). The oracles of God are given to the Jews (Romans 3:2 KJV). The gospel goes to the Jew first and then the gentiles (Romans 1:16 KJV).
The purpose of the Lord’s earthly ministry was to confirm the promises God made unto the fathers (Romans 15:8-9 KJV). God promised the Jews a literal, physical, earthly Kingdom with the promised Jewish Messiah reigning from the throne of his glory in Jerusalem. (Ezra 7:15-27/ 2 Samuel 7:1-12 KJV/Luke 24:15-21 KJV).
We gentiles were God’s Plan (B) for when the Jews rejected their Messiah simply to provoke the Jews to jealousy (Acts 9:15/ Romans 11:11 KJV). There is no such thing as a spiritual Jew (as many like to continually quote Romans 2:28-29 out of context). Circumcision of heart is ALWAYS a Jewish rebuke in scripture, warning the Jew that physical circumcision means nothing if they continually reject the commandments, laws, statues, and judgments of God (Due 10:16/ Due 30:6/ Jeremiah 4:4/ Romans 2:17 KJV). There is no Jew nor Greek in Christ (Galatians 3:28 KJV).
If ever there were such thing as a “spiritual Jew” if definitely would’ve been the Canaanite woman in the book of Matthew.
“Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.”Matthew 15:21-28 (KJV)
Here’s a gentile woman crying after the Lord in faith, worshipping him and Jesus does not acknowledge or refer to her as being a “spiritual jew”. God doesn’t even deal with her until she FIRST acknowledges that she is a gentile dog and is not above or equal to God’s people Israel.
RELIGIOUS FALLACY #10 – Everybody’s equal in Heaven
Light rejected becomes lighting, and it’s often a horrific domino effect that follows after:
When a believer rejects the Biblical doctrine of eternal security, they lose the ability to Biblically discern the difference between the Jew, the Gentile, and the church of God. Once they lose the ability to Biblically discern the difference between the Jew, the Gentile, and the Church of God, they lose the ability to Biblically discern the difference between OT salvation vs NT salvation. Once they lose the ability to Biblically discern the difference between OT salvation vs NT salvation, they lose the ability to Biblically discern the difference between the Judgment Seat of Christ vs The Great White Throne Judgement. Eventually, they start believing and teaching the heresy that salvation is the same throughout the entire Bible with ONE general judgment in the end, completely unable to discern the doctrinal difference between salvation and rewards.
Ask yourself this question: If everybody’s equal in Heaven, what is the benefit of receiving Jesus Christ as your personal Savior at a young age and living for Christ your entire life when some Hell bound sinner can live wicked as possible, get saved on his deathbed, and receive the exact same rewards in Heaven?
There’s no tangible benefit for your health or wealth in living for Christ on earth because God promises persecution to all those that live godly in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:12 KJV). So what was the benefit?
The Biblical answer to this is that although salvation in Christ is a free gift of God that’s available to all sinners at any time, a Christian’s rewards are EARNED (2 Corinthians 5:10 KJV). As a member in the body of Christ, a Christian can earn crowns, millennial inheritance, and the right to rule and reign with Christ in the Millennium (1 Corinthians 3:10-14/ Romans 8:17/ 2 Timothy 2:11-13 KJV).
These 5 Crowns available to the born again believer are:
The Crown of Righteousness: for those who love the Lord’s appearing when he appears in the sky (2 Timothy 4:3 KJV)
The Crown of Rejoicing: for soul winning (1 Thess 2:9 KJV)
The Incorruptible Crown: for keeping your body under subjection on earth (1 Corinthians 9:25:27 KJV)
The Crown of Glory: For feeding the sheep of God (1 Peter 5:4 KJV)
The Crown of Life: For enduring temptation (James 1:12 KJV)
The dead bed converted believer receives no rewards, crowns, or millennial inheritance. He receives God’s righteousness (Rom 10:3-4 KJV) which is eternal life in Heaven. Carnal Christians say “if I get into Heaven, that’ll be good enough for me”. This thinking is contrary to Scripture:
“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.”Colossians 3:1,2 (KJV)
