There are two passages in the bible that dumbfounds false teachers near and far…
“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation…“- 2nd Peter 1:20
“As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction” – 2nd Peter 3:16
Has anyone put forth with success more private interpretations and religious speculation as truth than Shepherd’s Chapel? You see, one of things our teacher likes to do is reinterpret the whole of scripture through the lens of his IDOL DOCTRINE the SERPENT SEED and it’s attendant KENITE deception. He knows no bounds to bending and twisting the text to make it fit his precious lies.
Take for instance where he tells us that the Greek word expatao or beguiled in Corinthians means to wholly seduce, as in both sexually and spiritually.
“For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” 2nd Corinthians 11:2-3
“You will remember also that, uh… Paul, in second Corinthians chapter eleven verses two and three stated, “I wanna present you all as chaste virgins to Christ,” that is to say our husband, when he returns, “not as Eve who was beguiled by that serpent.” The word beguiled in the Greek being, “Expattio” which has only one meaning, and that is to be wholly seduced, uh. Documentation? Prove me out. A Strong’s concordance, the Greek word 1818, beguiled as it is used in second Corinthians chapter 11.” – Arnold Murray, tape #438 Mark of the Beast
For Murray this text is about how Satan sexually seduced Eve in the Garden. At the same time he is suggesting that the antichrist will do to the church during the tribulation what Satan did to Eve in the garden. How that works I do not know. Somehow when Christ comes back he will find the church with a corporate devil baby.
I’m being facetious but you can see what happens when you logically follow these things out. In other words, Antichirst (or Satan according to Murray) is going to have sex with the church spiritually. OK, sure.
Expatao has absolutely nothing to do with being seduced sexually. The word simply means to be deceived and that is what happened to Eve – she allowed the serpent to deceive her through his subtlety into disobeying God. Sex never entered the picture – but like I said before, carnal man responds to this type of sensual perverse nonsense.
DON’T BUY INTO HIS CARNAL NONSENSE!
The main reasons I bring this up is to show you how false teachers distort and pervert the text making it mean something that is an utter abomination. Eve never had sexual relations with Satan and the word expatao has nothing to do with sexual seduction and means simply to deceive.
