What should you do when you lose faith in your religion?

Question: “What should you do when you start to lose faith in your religion?” – Wes Pierson

Pretext: The sad reality is that we live a fallen world where false religion almost reigns supreme. The sinfulness of man causes him to cast a god in his own image and then create a damnable religious system to go with it… once this has been accomplished he goes on a hellish crusade to lead others to the pit.

The system that the heretic creates is the philosophical net to ensnare the undiscerning masses. It’s all about power with false religion and it’s goal is to universally prevent humanity from seeing the light of the truth that is found in Jesus Christ.

My answer… 

Let it run it’s course because religion is man-made unless it is true religion from God. False religion is Satanic deception and will lead you to hell – you shouldn’t have faith in a lie or anything that contains a lie. Once you have despaired of the futility of man’s falsehood turn to your Creator who is infinite and ask for Him to reveal the Savior Jesus Christ to you. Have your sins washed away by the blood He shed for you and develop a relationship with Him.

Why Are there So Many “Gods” & Religions?

T. Schafer asks the question,

“Why are there so many different gods and religions out there?”

My answer…

There is only one true God and one true religion that is revealed from heaven – and that religion teaches that Jesus Christ came into the world to die for guilty sinners.

On the other hand there are a multitude of false religions created by man. Man is fallen and has a natural propensity for casting a “god” in his own image and has found it highly expedient to do so… the only problem is what Jesus said…

“Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” – Matthew 15:14

Cult Wars! Mormonism & Joseph Smith Exposed ~ w/Colby Braden

Recently Colby Braden and I began a new series exposing the main false religious movements. In this installment of “Cult Wars” on 01.20.16 we take up our assault on the stronghold of Mormonism. There are a lot of similarities between the Shepherd’s Chapel and Mormonism, some of which we will address. In this broadcast we uncover the foundation of this very deceptive cult…

Dispensational Premillennial Futurism Deception “Death Star”

Colby Braden and I are starting a new series on assaulting the strongholds of false religion called “Cult Wars”. In this first episode we take aim at the “Death Star” of deception within so called “Protestant” evangelical Christianity and guess what? The Chapel is just one of the many twisted manifestations of the futurist deception…

Dispensational futurism has many uncanny Roman Papal ties starting with the Jesuit priest Francisco Ribera whom the Vatican commissioned to deceive the church. There’s more to getting free from the deception than understanding that there is no pre-tribulation rapture… much more! It’s time to STRIKE THE EMPIRE!

Why Do You Call Shepherd’s Chapel a Cult?

cult

During my time working with this blog there has been an immense hue and cry from Shepherd’s Chapel students. Many say to me, “Why do you call them a cult? I would call Jamestown and Jim Jones a cult. Murray always encourages his students to think for themselves… I wouldn’t consider that a cult!”

Point well taken. The term “cult” is a “culturally charged” word with strong negative connotations. Nobody wants to be a brainwashed drone with no mind of their own, right? Murray knows this, that’s why he encourages them to study and think for themselves.

So when I use the word to refer to this ministry I realize that it will be perceived as inflammatory. But I think the terminology fits perfectly…

I would also like to add in their favor Shepherd’s Chapel is not a cult in the typical sense… here’s how Webster defines “cult”:

Cult:

  • a small religious group that is not part of a larger and more accepted religion and that has beliefs regarded by many people as extreme or dangerous…
  • a situation in which people admire and care about something or someone very much or too much…
  • a small group of very devoted supporters or fans…

Lately I have really been keying in on how Murray teaches that there are essentially TWO bodies of Christ, the “elect” and the “free will” church… the following video segment from the Chapel’s teaching, “Elect” demonstrates perfectly why I call them a cult. It starts around 25 minutes, but listen to what he says in 25:21 – if this doesn’t make alarm bells go off you need to change the batteries in your smoke detector!

So you see what he is saying, right? That there is, “the Elect” whom he calls the “Church” – this really means “Murray’s elect” something that he fabricated… it is naked heresy pure and simple. Then there are those poor saps who are the Church of Christ whom he calls the “free will” church because they are going to worship the beast.

Essentially two churches… there is division built into this thing.

The bible doesn’t teach that there are two bodies of Christ… HE’S PEDDLING SPIRITUAL ELITISM AND PEOPLE ARE DRINKING IT UP LIKE WATER!

“For Christ himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in his own body on the cross, he broke down the wall of hostility that separated us.” – Ephesians 2:14

Let me explain this to you – because of dispensationalism Murray teaches a division in the body Christ. He learned this from Bullinger and Scofield. They maintain that the church and Israel are radically distinct and God has seperate plans and purposes for them.

BECAUSE of British Israelism (they believe that THEY are the Hebrews), the Chapel inserts themselves into the place of Israel and upholds the division of dispensationalism… DO YOU SEE THAT?

I would say this is a picture perfect definition of a cult, with the heresies to boot!
