False Doctrine Does Not Agree with the Word, or Even with Itself
If you have ever wondered how to spot false doctrine, or religious concepts invented by men, and NOT invented by YHWH Almighty God; there are two distinct identifying markers.First, the, “Doctrine,” concept or idea does NOT agree, or is NOT CONSISTENT with ALL of YHWH’s Standards and Commandments in ALL of Scripture. That means it is NOT TRUE. A true doctrine CANNOT CONTRADICT His Word, Contradict His Commandments, nor His Character.
The second identifying marker for a false doctrine is that, the, “Doctrine,” concept or idea does NOT agree, or is NOT CONSISTENT with, or CONTRADICTS ITSELF, and its own stated standards.
Scripture and Messiah are TRUE, but MODERN Christianity has become a FALSE religion
I realize that what I’m saying is strong medicine, and a hard pill to swallow, but if you look at the Weight of Biblical Evidence, it becomes overwhelmingly clear that the faith and practice which YHWH Commanded; the faith and practice which Messiah Himself lived, and the faith which the first century apostles believed, lived and practiced themselves; it bears LITTLE or NO resemblance to what we call Christian today. Since modern Christianity does not remain true to ALL the standards of Scripture, it CANNOT be TRUE doctrine. It has become a man-made and false religion.
Since YHWH Almighty God CANNOT deny or contradict HIMSELF, then any concept or doctrine that contradicts what He has said, CANNOT be truly from Him, by definition.Now, all of humanity has sinned and fallen short of the glory of Elohim, (Romans 3:23 ), so it is possible that we are sincerely pursuing after the things of YHWH Almighty God, and we get a little off track, and we need to be brought back to center of YHWH’s Will. That can happen to anyone without them being in a false religion; but when you combine the first issue of being inconsistent with YHWH, with the second issue of being inconsistent with its own stated standards, now you have a false religion, invented by men, and NOT empowered by YHWH. One of the biggest red flags concerning modern Christianity today is that not only does it not stay true to Scripture, but it does not remain true to its own stated beliefs either. YHWH Almighty is above all things consistent and reliable, and since modern Christianity is not consistent either with YHWH, nor with itself; modern Christianity has become a man-made and false religion.
Key Examples of Modern Christianity’s Inconsistency with Itself
EXAMPLE: ALL Scripture is profitable for doctrine… And to instruct us how to be righteous, except for the Torah of YHWH, [The first five books of Scripture] that’s legalism. So Don’t use Torah.“We believe that ALL of Scripture is God breathed and the inerrant and infallible Word of God. We believe that all of Scripture is God breathed, and profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness so that the man of God will be thoroughly furnished and well equipped for every good work, (2 Timothy 3:16-17). But wait! Don’t use the first five books of Scripture, because that’s legalism. Don’t use the Torah of YHWH to form your doctrine, or to reprove you, or to correct you, or to instruct you on how to be righteous; because the first five books of Scripture have been abolished and done away with at the cross, so they are no longer profitable to accomplish the very tasks that Paul said they could accomplish in the life of the believer.EXAMPLE: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, (Philippians 4:13); EXCEPT that I CAN’T obey YHWH Almighty God’s Laws the way Christ did when He was here, through Christ strengthens me. So supposedly, YHWH sent Messiah to get rid of His Eternal Laws, so we would not have to concern ourselves with His Commandments anymore.EXAMPLE: “With God all things are possible, (Matthew 19:36).” NOTHING is too difficult for YHWH, (Jeremiah 32:17); EXCEPT , He could not transform us into His obedient children, so He got rid of the Law through Messiah so that we would not have to obey Him and His Commandments anymore.Christians proclaim that they believe that NOTHING is too difficult for YHWH, but at the same time they will claim that YHWH supposedly cannot transform us, [as He promised that He would do, Ezekiel 36:25-27] so that we COULD keep and OBEY His Laws, Commandments, Statutes, and ordinances. So, since YHWH supposedly cannot transform us into His OBEDIENT children as He promised He would do, and since obeying His Commandments is supposedly too difficult and impossible for us, then YHWH’s only solution is supposedly to send Jesus Christ to abolish YHWH’s Laws, Commandments and Standards at the cross, so that we can now do the OPPOSITE of what YHWH Commanded us to do, and still live in the Father’s Household, because we claim to receive and have faith in His Son. This may look strange and far-fetched when you read it, but if you look at it objectively, this is literally how modern-day Christianity tries to function, [or should I say dysfunctions].
EXAMPLE: Christians believe and proclaim that Paul was an apostle, and based on how they read and interpret his apostolic letters, modern Christians claim that we should not obey or honor YHWH’s Commandments and Instructions written in the Torah. EXCEPT for the fact that Paul HIMSELF openly declared that he was NOT teaching AGAINST the Torah of written Scripture, [Acts 24:14; Acts 25:8, 10; Acts 28:17].Modern Christianity will devoutly IGNORE what Paul SAID that he was and was not teaching, also that they can continue to propagate a Lawless Grace that Paul SAID that he did not believe practice or teach; all the while proclaiming that they believe the authority of Paul’s apostleship.
Paul Clearly Testified that he was NOT Against Torah
(Acts 24:14; Acts 25:8, 10; Acts 28:17)One of the first reasons that we KNOW that Paul was NOT teaching AGAINST the Torah, is that Paul HIMSELF SAID that he was not doing that. Paul SAID that he believed and practiced the faith of his fathers. He said that he believes EVERYTHING according to what is written in the Law and in the prophets, (Acts 24:14).IF Paul was truly teaching people to DISREGARD and to DISOBEY YHWH’s Laws, Commandments and Instructions written in the Torah, then Paul’s statement here in Acts 24:14, would be a LIE. We can’t have it both ways. We cannot on the one hand teach that Paul was a legitimate apostle, and that his doctrinal statements need to be observed, while on the other hand ignoring what Paul said that he believed and practiced himself. If his statements of Acts 24:14 are true and accurate, then Paul COULD NOT have been teaching against the Law of YHWH in written Scripture. IF he WAS teaching AGAINST the Law of YHWH in written Scripture, then he could NOT have been telling the TRUTH in Acts 24:14. I believe that Paul told the truth concerning what he believed and practiced, and preached, but that means that Paul could NOT have been teaching AGAINST the Law of YHWH. Again, Paul specifically SAID that he had committed NO offense against the Law of the Jews; (Acts 25:8). Again, IF Paul was truly teaching and preaching that people should disobey the written Commandments written Torah, then Paul’s statement in Acts 25:8, COULD NOT POSSIBLY be the truth. If Paul was telling the truth in his statements of Acts 25:8, then he could not be teaching against Torah. Again, in Acts 25:10, Paul specifically SAID that he had done, “No wrong to the Jews.” Again, if Paul had been preaching that people should DISOBEY YHWH’s Laws, Commandments and Instructions written in the Torah, then this statement of Acts 25:10, could not possibly be the truth. Once again, in Acts 28:17, Paul specifically SAID that he, “Had done NOTHING against our people or the customs of our fathers, yet I was delivered as a prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans.” The bottom line is, that if Paul had been preaching that people should DISOBEY YHWH’s Laws, Commandments and Instructions written in the Torah, then Paul was LYING in his statements of (Acts 24:14; Acts 25:8, Acts 25:10 and in Acts 28:17). IF Paul was telling the TRUTH in each of those statements, then the reality is that he could NOT have been preaching and teaching AGAINST keeping YHWH’s written Torah. It’s that simple.
“Modern Christianity simply CANNOT have it BOTH ways. If the modern Christian doctrine is correct, then Paul supposedly believed and taught that YHWH’s Eternal Laws, Commandments, and Instructions written in the Torah were abolished and done away with through Messiah at the cross. The problem is that if such a doctrine is true, then it openly CONTRADICTS what Paul HIMSELF SAID that he believed, practiced and preached, (Acts 24:14 Acts 25:8, 10; Acts 28:17). If modern Christian doctrine is telling the truth, then Paul was teaching against obeying the Torah; which means Paul would have to be LYING in his declarations about what he believed, practiced and preached; (Acts 24:14 Acts 25:8, 10; Acts 28:17). IF Paul was a liar, then nothing he would have said concerning the Law, or anything else, has any bearing anyway. On the other hand, IF Paul was telling the TRUTH in his testimonies about what he believed and practiced, (Acts 24:14 Acts 25:8, 10; Acts 28:17), then in fact he was NOT teaching AGAINST OBEYING the Torah in Written Scripture, just as he proclaimed that he wasn’t, which means that modern Christianity has it WRONG; and they are misreading, misinterpreting and misapplying Paul’s epistles. It’s that simple.”Modern Christianity seems to only be interested in the portions of Paul’s writings which APPEAR to suggest that Paul was teaching against the Torah, [when he truly was not]; while everything else Paul said AFFIRMING that believers should OBEY the Torah of YHWH in Written Scripture is either devoutly IGNORED, or skillfully maneuvered around.”Brother Robert Michel Lankford
