Church overview — What do churches teach today?

When conducting a church overview, have you ever wondered what the various churches teach? Do they dare to ‘teach‘ about the Book of Revelation—or end times events? If they do ‘teach’ – is it from the Bible? Do they teach the whole word of God (1 Tim. 6:3-4), or something else?

For example, are you aware that Communism infiltrated (“leavened”) or neutralized the spiritual potency of the churches over a century ago? (1 Cor 5:7)

The most obvious effect of Communism’s leavening of today’s churches is that such churches have become more like entertainment venues. Instead, they should be places where God’s people gather to save the lost souls of this world through evangelism using the POWER of God’s kingdom in which to do so.

Communism has “leavened” today’s churches

Watch this 13-minute video below that reveals how Communism has set the churches on ‘The Broad Way‘ that ultimately leads its followers into Hell (Matt 7:13).

What should churches teach today?

The Bible says that God requires His people to “worship Him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23-24). It does not say by words in the form of entertainment (Matt 15:8).

The scripture verses below plainly state what people should be experiencing in the true Church of Christ:

For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in [spiritual] POWER. (1 Cor. 4:20)

For OUR GOSPEL came not unto you in word only, but also in POWER, and in the Holy Ghost…” (1 Thes 1:5)

The “power” being referred to is that which Jesus demonstrated when He was on the earth as both the Son of Man (Luke 9:56) and the Son of God (John 3:18):

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, THE WORKS that I do shall he do also; and GREATER WORKS than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” (John 14:12)

Christian entertainment

Satan has always had success at “beguiling” God’s people (2 Cor 11:3).

He does this by influencing what the churches teach by first creating doubt in people’s minds. He does this by saying:

Serpent speaking to Eve

In this environment, Satan questions whether: “…if you need to stop sinning…or, if you need to forgive others…or, if you need to love one another…or, if you need to be holy...or, if you need to be perfect…or…didn’t the Gifts of the Spirit finish in the first century?”

Check these references to confirm the claims above. 1 John 3:8; Matt 6:15; John 13:35; 1 Peter 1:16; Matt 5:48: 1 Cor 12:7. See also Gen 3:1.

The above verses illustrate how our enemy the Devil (Matt. 13:38-40) is using his people in the pulpits to ‘leaven’ (or corrupt) the churches. When this happens, such churches are no longer effective at serving God (2 Cor. 11:14-15).

Communism in the Churches Rejects God’s “Approval” needed for Salvation

The Bible requires all Christians to “study to be approved unto God” (2 Tim 2:15). Such approval ensures to a degree, entry into Heaven at death (Matt. 25:21).

Any failure to become “approved” will mean entry into Hell at death because of failing to obey Christ’s commands (John 14:15) and to do God’s will (Matt. 7:21).

Simply put — Communism aims to pervert or corrupt God’s requirement for His people to serve Him (Matt 25:26). In this, it is Satan’s plan to:

  • make Christians look foolish before God (Psalm 5:5) and make them appear
  • spiritually dead (Rev 3:1). It also aims to make them appear
  • passive in everything else that God requires of His servants (Matt 25:25-30) –
  • especially evangelism (Mark 16:15).

Church overview: The purpose of this blog:

This blog presents the Gospel message that the Apostle Paul referred to as “My Gospel” (Rom 16:25).

What is written might shock some, but it shouldn’t discourage you. It aims to provide a better understanding of what God’s message is to those of His children on the earth who have a spiritual ear “…to hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches” (Rev 2:7; 2:17).

Christians are encouraged to read this site’s blog articles and ask questions freely and without condemnation — and within your own spiritual understanding.

Christians today are accepting many false gospels; and in doing so, become offensive towards God. No Christian should want to be like those who believe one of many false gospels that will NOT deliver FINAL Salvation after they die.

In this, Jesus warned His people to:

"Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For MANY [false preachers ] shall come in my name, saying, I am [a disciple of] Christ; and shall DECEIVE MANY"  (Matt 24:3-5)

The True Gospel is a “Mystery”

This blog uses only King James scripture verses as a reference and not the words of theologians — whether from times past or now. Therefore, it is easy for you to determine (as the Bereans did – Acts 17:11) whether the claims being made are true or not. This is to help you understand the “mystery of the Gospel message” presented here (Rom 16:25; Eph. 6:19).

To help you do this more effectively, Christians should ask those in their church’s leadership if the claims on this blog are true. If leaders refuse to provide answers, Christians should consider if Communism has leavened their church.

Each Christian’s Final Salvation‘ (that occurs at death – Phil 2:12; 1 Peter 1:9) depends solely on one’s “striving” to obtain eternal life (Luke 13:24). This “striving” should continue throughout the new born Christian’s lifetime while on Earth. Any failure to undertake the diligence needed in this (2 Tim 2:15) might see individuals believing “another gospel” (Gal 1:6).

Belief in any such ‘false gospel’ cannot ‘save‘ a soul from spending eternity in Hell! Ending up in Hell happens if one places their trust in a (false) religious spirit that associates with another Jesus” (2 Cor 11:4) that associates more with Communism, which has leavened the churches.

Gospel Overview: The Initial and Final Salvation Chart

The chart below represents the stages of spiritual growth that are required for Salvation to be achieved.

Walking in the Spirit” (Rom 8:1) is one of a number of mandatory requirements for Salvation to be achieved. The “New Birth” (John 3:3-8) is mandatory if the required spiritual “fruit” is to be brought forth into God’s kingdom (John 15:1-2). If there is “no New Birth” then it’s impossible for the required “fruit” to be produced (Matt 7:18).

The pathway to “Final Salvation” (1 Peter 1:9) commences at the “New Birth“. It ends when Christ’s disciples have successfully “overcome” Satan’s temptations (1 Thes 3:5; Rev 3:21 ). These events are indicated on the chart below.
