Reader Exhortation from JohnyC about the Shepherd’s Chapel

“Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.” – Ephesians 5:11

In 2005 the Lord Jesus Christ delivered me from the Shepherd’s Chapel web of false doctrines. Since that time I have been reaching out to others caught up in this. Jesus Christ shed his blood to forgive of us from the sin of religious idolatry, partaking of and spreading false teaching. When the Lord convicted me for my involvement with the Chapel I became very ashamed for the people I had led astray and sought to reach out and warn them…

There are others who have similar experiences where the Holy Spirit led them to reject the Chapel. Reader JohnyC is the latest to put forth his exhortation… he notes how the Chapel twists the doctrine of the resurrection and gives a special warning at the end,

I started to listen to Murray back in 1994. I used to love the Shepherd’s Chapel because he read the bible verse by verse. But what continually bothered me… it never failed, he would always gravitate back to attacking the “Kenites” and pushing other of his pet doctrines.

His teachings resembled more of the Pharisee’s mentality with so much emphasis on the flesh and genealogy. He was always twisting everything to fit the Christian Identity cult mentality.

Now I know the truth, the New Covenant is unlike the Old. While the Old Covenant was all about following rules and sacrifices, the New covenant is about the spirit and faith.

I hate how he twisted Corinthians 5:8 where it says, “…we are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord…” with something like, “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord at the moment of death” Paul uses clothing imagery to describe our bodies. We currently wear a mortal body, but in God’s presence at the resurrection we “must put on” an immortal one.

All I have to say if you are a Shepherd’s Chapel follower and you have a feeling that their teachings do not match with the scripture, listen to that inner voice because it is the Holy Spirit trying to save you from their web of lies.

  1. The great temptation and error of our day is to give heed to our own imperfect thoughts and feelings rather than a thorough investigation of scripture.
    Murray argues against the “Rapture”- so does scripture.
    Murray speaks of descendants of Cain-Kenites gumming up the works- so does scripture.
    Murray rightly divides true tongues from false.
    Murray’s hobbyhorses are greatly relevant to our time and bear repeating.
    You prefer other voices and commentators over scripture.

    • Hi Robert – I believe Murray is correct when he refutes the notion of a pre-tribulation rapture but he is still a dispensational futurist, this is system of futurism was invented by the Jesuits. He is an unwitting ally of Rome.

      As far as the Kenites – I have volumes of scriptural proof disproving it on the blog. Your position is that Satan had literal sex with Eve, had literal offspring as a result and that these literal physical progeny are still in power today. This is a psychotic teaching.

      Murray’s teachings about tongues, once again, they are very wrong. Murray inserts his cult into an end-times re-emergence of the Pentecost tongue and he teaches that the gift of tongues in Corinth was simply another common language. Go back reread Corinthians honestly and you will see that his position is not true.

      I only prefer the Holy Spirit as my guide into understanding the text – you have sided with the Chapel.

    • Hi Robert,

      Do not be deceived by what may appear to be sound doctrine but instead is nothing but scripture being twisted. The serpent seed and Anglo-Isrealism as taught by the identity movement has been refuted in this site and many others. SC never teaches you how to properly divide the word of God by showing you the difference between the New and the Old covenants. Sure, they attack the rapture as a false teaching but at the same time they teach several other false doctrines. SC’s doctrine is a deadly mixture of Aryanism, Gnosticism, Mormonism and Freemasonry. SC does not teach Christianity as taught in the New testament. It is instead a religion that leads to self-worship, carnal-thinking and prejudice for others such as the “Kenites”.

      1 John 3:10, In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever does not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loves not his brother.

      The children of the devil are those who do no righteousness and do not love God with all of their heart as well as love their brothers, sisters and even their enemies. Being a children of God or a children of the serpent is about a condition of the heart not the color of one’s skin or our genealogy. Those puffed up in the flesh would have a hard time accepting this knowledge, but our Lord is not a respecter of persons and shows no favoritism as shown in Acts 10:34. Jesus said, ” the meek shall inherit the Earth” Matthew 5:5. SC doctrine is false, makes its followers become filled with pride and nowhere as meek as our Lord told us to become. SC is not centered on Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and the fruits of the Holy Spirit but on the ” elect who supposedly stood against Satan” , all which is nowhere to be found in the scripture. I have one piece of advise for you dear brother: Pray that God opens your heart and your spiritual eyes so you can come out of this TV cult and into the loving arms of Jesus Christ.
