Introduction

The Dictionaries of Bible word definitions sometimes will completely change understanding of what we once thought to be truth.

The Bible Greek word Ekklesia that is falsely translated as the word “Church” is written from two Greek words the Bible Greek word “Ek” meaning “out of.” And the Greek word “Klaleo” meaning to “call.”

    > Seyffert's dictionary states, the Bible Ekklesia is "The assembly of the people,” which in the ancient Greek city of Athens “had the power of final decision in public affairs"

    > Thayer's lexicon says, the Bible word Ekklesia is “an assembly of the people convened at the public place of council for the purpose of deliberating" [J. H. Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament, p. 196].

I want you to take careful note of the words “purpose of deliberating in polemic debate [the law].” Not all cities in the ancient Greece had the “Ekklesia.”

If you study the Greek history of the Ekklesia in Athens Greece you will discover the “Ekklesia” was a special called out group that through polemic debate determines what true law for the government of the people is.

Now let us examine the most ancient history of the ancient Greek word “Ekklesia.” from the online “Wickipedia.”

“The original Greek name “Ekklesia” or the “called out” is originally recorded from the classic Greek of a peculiar “elected” or “called out” group in the city of Athens Greece.

The Ekklesia (Greek) was the principal assembly of the democracy of ancient Athens.

The Ekklesia was the popular assembly, opened to all male citizens over the age of 18 by the law giver Solon in 594 BC.

In the 5th century BC, this is believed to amount to about 43,000 people. However, only those wealthy enough to spend much of their time away from home would have been able to participate.

The Ekklesia/assembly was responsible for:

> > declaring war,

> > military strategy,

> > and electing “strategoi”

> > and for other officials of the government.

Ekklesia originally met once every month, but later it met three or four times per month. [Weekly]

> > The agenda for the Ekklesia was established by the Boule,(presbyters) the popular 'council'.

> > Votes were taken by a show of hands (See wickipedia.org).

My reply to the above statement about 43,000 people (men) members may not all have gathered at one time in the assembly considering the original size of the ancient building in Athens Greece.

[NEWTONSTEIN NOTE: WE advise Author Wade that the Ekklesia of Athens, or of any Greek city, or Christ's Ekklesia in Israel -

* * NONE of them met in particular buildings'

* * All of them met on an "acropolis" - the highest hill of any given city;

The 'acro' (highest hill) 'polis' (city, from which we English get the word 'metropolis' in Athens was called the Pynux *check online);

For Christ, he used an unnamed mountain in Galilee for his Ekklesia assemblies (See Matthew 5.1) and the Mt of Olives (also called Mt. Olivet) in Jerusalem; [1]

Let us first face the facts that some people live their whole lives in a dream world of vicarism and pagan superstition. The color that is accepted by the majority as the color black to some people who are rebellious and live their lives in a world of fable fiction and vicarism is not really black but instead is “white.” It is amazing the number of people who love lies when they think they have arrive at the “Status Quo” and dream that it is impossible for them to be worshipping God in error.

A study of world history and in word definition of the word “church” shows the most ancient Ekklesia of Jesus and the modern “Church” is infiltrated and filled with pagan practices brought over from the Catholic Church and other organization that was established before the Catholic Church started in the fourth century. Because there is pagan worship in the practice of most modern “churches” it is the main reason why most religious groups want themselves to be identified as a “church.” The most ancient English name “Church” is meaning to be a pagan holy round building. The Catholic Church had to change the word definition of the Greek Bible name “Ekklesia” to the pagan word “church” because the true name and word meaning of the Greek word “Ekklesia” of Jesus would destroy their beliefs in false pagan doctrine brought into the fourth century Ekklesia by the beginning of the Catholic Church.

Why did King James continue to reject the translation of the word ekklesia as “the called out assembly” In his King James Bible translation? The original Preface to the 1611 King James Bible falsely stated that their desire was to correctly translate the Bible. King James rejected the true translations of the Bible words Ekklesia for the same reasons of the Catholic Church. King James did not want polemic debate in his open assembly because of the pagan doctrine he copied from the Catholic Church. Anyone of that century who contested the king James translation of the Bible did so at the risk of his life.

Our only purpose of teaching certain Bible controversial subjects tainted with paganism is that we believe to be of the utmost importance for the salvation of the true Christian believer. Because some Bible translators twist and pummel the original meaning of some Bible words to promote their religious idiosyncrasies, we are forced to go back to the ancient languages of the Bible to determine what the original and true Bible word definitions are.

Some people hate Bible word definitions because true Bible word definitions sometimes will change our understanding of our most precious beliefs that we hold so dear to us. However some of us believe the words of Jesus when he gives us this warning that only knowing the truth is what will make us free from sin (John chapter 8: verse 32). If we want to have any success in learning truth taught from the most ancient Bible manuscripts, then we must put forth the most concerted effort to determine the environment or hermeneutics of the Bible writers and then determine what the true word definitions are that are given by our God that will save us.

Let us now establish the teaching of Jesus.

Now notice very carefully what I am about to teach. Jesus did not establish a “Church” as the word definition that is given in most all English dictionaries. So notice the little qualifying word “if.” If Jesus did establish his “Ekklesia” but Jesus did -not establish what most call a “church” then who has established your “church.”

First let us examine the words of Jesus who said he is building his “Ekklesia” that determines source of doctrine for the spiritual war, Jesus said in the war for the souls of mankind, “the gates of hell will not prevail against” his -Ekklesia. Now notice carefully the gates into the kingdom of Hell are plural. Jesus also has a “strait gate” that he said is hard to find and the hard to get through gate to get into the kingdom of God (Mat. 7:14).

Again note the most ancient or the original ekklesia is the special place of gathering of the called out to debate the law of the government. The Ekklesia of Jesus is understood to be designed by God to make decisions through polemic debate for the spiritual war against the wide gaping easy to get through gates of hell. The spiritual war Jesus said is to be made against the Gates of Hell or the enemies of God (see Matthew chapter 16: verses 16-18).

Let us go back to Matthew and start our reading from verse 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. Keep the words of Jesus in this context: Peter has just confessed that Jesus is the Christ the son of God. Jesus said; verse 18 And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build [more correctly “edify] my Ekklesia [falsely translated as a church]; Jesus continues to say “and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Notice, Jesus is saying hell has more than one “gate” to get into. Jesus taught that there is only one strait gate into the Kingdom of God. The word meaning of the “strait gate” that leads into the kingdom of God is hard to find and hard to get through.

Jesus said to Peter “you are “Peter.” Jesus used the Greek word” Petros”. “Petros” is a name meaning in the Bible Greek as “The Little Rock.” You are Petros or you are “a Little Rock!”

Upon the confession of Peter that Jesus is the son of God Jesus is saying that this confession of Peter is the Petra or the awesome foundation of the Ekklesia or Jesus the son of God. Jesus declares to Peter and the other apostles; “but upon this Petra” which keeping in the context; the apostle Peter has confessed Jesus to be -the Christ or the awesome cliff of a rock foundation. The very fact that Jesus is the Petra or the Christ is an awesome unmovable foundation of a cliff of rock. See Strong’s Greek dictionary number 4073 Petra Petra pet’-ra or upon this awesome or most powerful cliff of a rock, I will build or edify through polemic debate my “Ekklesia” or my “assembly” {for the purpose of polemic debate to determine truth in how to make war against the gates of hell or against the spiritual enemies of God. Now my friend if you learn no more then what I stated, I warn you that you now have learned truth in what the Ekklesia is compared to what is a church.

We in the twenty first century must correctly identify what is “the Ekklesia of The Christ” (Matthew chapter 16: verse 18). Let us examine the Bible Greek word see Strong’s number 1577 Ekklesia ek-klay-see’-ah.

The Greek name of the solid rock city of Petra was an ancient fortress like city of caves drilled with hammer and chisels and dug out of a solid rock formation. To this day the city Petra still exists in a solid mountain of solid rock. To understand what the foundation of “Petra” is we must first see and then understand the caves of the fortress like city. The foundation of the fortress city of Petra is cave like dwellings built in a huge cliff and carved out of a solid rock formation.

The Most ancient city of Petra

At the coming of Jesus every one knew what the fortress like city of Petra was. It was carved out of a great stone mountain. NET Glossary: an archaeological site in modern Jordan famous for its buildings carved from solid living rock, located east of the Arabah, the rift valley running from the Dead Sea to the Red Sea; in ancient times the capital of the Nabataeans and center of their caravan trade

This should give us some understanding of the foundation of Petra that Jesus said through the confession of Peter that he was the son of God, that he was going to edify his Ekklesia (through polemic debate of the law of God).

To hold truth we must discover the answer to the question, what did Jesus mean when he taught that he will build or edify his kingdom through his “Ekklesia. “ Peter’s confession that Jesus is the son of God, that Jesus said is the Petra or the foundation or the strong cliff of a rock will prevail against the Gates of hell. Polemic debate is the special duty of any Ekklesia and the Ekklesia is specifically designed to reason truth through polemic debate when edifying his Ekklesia. What did Jesus mean when he said he will “edify” or “build?” To edify is to build up by teaching. To edify or build up through teaching into an organization that is established on the Greek “Petra” or on Jesus who is the son of God or Jesus who is the foundation of an awesome cliff of a rock and doctrine taught by Jesus (who is that awesome foundation) is only proven through polemic debate to be the source of doctrine reasoned and taught in the Ekklesia of the Christ.

Jesus said in the Judaic Greek, he as the awesome foundation of the cliff of a rock and on this rock like fortress he will build or edify his “Ekklesia” and this Ekklesia that Jesus said he will build or edify is his Ekklesia. Jesus indicated the Ekklesia is to edify upon himself who is the son of God or the awesome -Petra or an awesome cliff of an unmovable foundation or the rock. The Ekklesia of Jesus or this assembly or this group who through polemic debate of the established doctrine or law given by God, will determine the source of when and how to carry the war against the enemies of God and through polemic debate in the assemblies the gates of hell will not prevail against the decisions made by the elected “Ekklesia” that Jesus edifies.

We first want to show how in most all English translated Bibles the Bible Greek word “Ekklesia” is mistranslated today as the English word “church.” So we must first determine what the Greek “Ekklesia” is from ancient history of the original Greeks of Greece and from the intent Jesus in his words written in the Bible. We will then compare the Bible Greek word “Ekklesia to the modern definition of the English word “Church.” It does not take long to discover the “Ekklesia” of Jesus is not any where near the same definition as the definition given by modern English dictionaries about what the ancient and modern English word “Church” really is.

We question, where did the Bible Greek word Ekklesia originate? As a matter of fact the Greek word Ekklesia originally came from the ancient Greeks of Athens Greece.

In a study of ancient history, to this very day of June 18, 2008, we discover the word definition of the Bible Greek word Ekklesia is -never changed from the original Greek word meaning of what the Greek Ekklesia is. The ancient Greek word definition of the first recorded ekklesia in Athens Greece some 500 years before the coming of Jesus to this day has the same word definition that describes what the Greek word ekklesia is. Think about what was just stated. Word meaning of what the Greek Ekklesia is, has not changed in over two thousand years. In all of world history the Greek ekklesia of Jesus is never correctly translated as a “church” that is described in the English dictionary. In describing the correct definition of the Ekklesia of Jesus the function of the ekklesia must be described in the definition of what the ekklesia of Jesus is. If the function of the ekklesia is not described in the definition then the definition is false.

Now do not think for one moment, that Jesus did not know what the purpose and duties of the Ekklesia was for the first ancient Greek Ekklesia located in Athens Greece. Jesus knew the purpose of the called out in the first Ekklesia in the city of Athens Greece. Jesus understood very well what the organization of the Greek Ekklesia was and what the conduct and purpose of such an organization of the Ekklesia was to accomplish for the government of the people. However let us compare the difference in the Ekklesia of Jesus and then compare the Ekklesia of Jesus to the most ancient “Ekklesia” of the Greeks of Athens Greece.

1a) The ancient Greek Ekklesia is first recorded in history to exist in the ancient government of Athens Greece. The Ekklesia or the called out of the Greeks in Athens is the open and called out assembly in a large building. The Greek building in Athens was a large public building and was established for the good of all the people. Now take careful notice. Today there is a world of people teaching we must only worship God in our homes or “house worship” and they teach that we do not have scriptural authority to build a very large public building to gather and reason the scriptures and to worship God. It is true, not all worship is to be made by all coming together in one place, there is some worship designed by God to be made only in the home.

The duties of the first “Ekklesia” in Athens Greece was to determine through polemic debate the source and definitions of doctrine or law given from the law giver Solan. It is of the utmost importance that we understand the polemic debate is made to determine by reason the source and application of true doctrine. The question is where does your doctrine or law of your “church” originate and does your church prove through open polemic debate in your open assemblies that you have the truth different from those who oppose what you teach? Notice carefully the purpose of “Ekklesia” is meaning reasoning and using open polemic debate made in large buildings in open assemblies to determine doctrine or law against the lawless and the enemies of the state. Now take note of the definition of the Greek word Ekklesia against those who complain and say that it is a sin of idolatry to build a large building in one city for Christians to assemble to worship, discuss or debate their differences in law or doctrine. True, there was only one Ekklesia or large building in every city of the ancient Greeks. Some Christian Ekklesias in different cities were located in Christian homes. Depending on how many Christian people lived in the city and how many needed to gather to hear the debate.

The law giver Solan was an Athenian statesman, known as one of the Seven Wise Men of Greece. Solan ended exclusive aristocratic control of the government, substituted a system of control by the wealthy, and introduced a new and more humane law code. He was also a noted poet. (See Encyclopedia Britannica Solan (Greek statesman and poet). (What is word meaning to “polemic” debate the law? The word meaning of polemic is controlled controversy and aggressive conversation to determine how to determine source of conduct according to doctrine or the law given by the law giver Solan.

The duties of the called out Ekklesia of Athens was “called out” or elected to gather and to determine public policy and then determine the source of the law of Solan and how to expedite and make war against the enemy of the government of the people of Athens Greece.

1b) Galatians chapter 3 verse 27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Galatians 6:2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. The Ekklesia of the Christ was established by Jesus for the Kingdom of God. Today there are groups of Christians who identify themselves as the true “Ekklesia” of Jesus and they have controlled debate in their open assemblies for the purpose to determine the source of “sound doctrine of the law of the Christ.” The purpose of the Ekklesia of Jesus is to edify the assembly about the doctrine of God to determine how to correctly make spiritual war against the gates of hell. If some one objects to what is being taught as “the law of faith” or if some one is called into question about their understanding what is the law of faith is suspect to be a digressive practice against the law of faith then it is passed time for polemic debate in the open assembly.

The Ekklesia built by Jesus is established to determine truth only through polemic debate against the opposition (the gates of hell). Polemic debate is to be made only in the open assembly to determine the doctrine or teaching of Jesus to declare how to make spiritual war against the enemies of the kingdom of Jesus.

2a) In the ancient Ekklesia of Athens Greece or in the open assembly of the Ekklesia, only the men are elected to fulfill their responsibilities to participate in controlled debate in making decisions of how to dispense law. In Athens Greece Only men are allowed to enter the building where the men held Greek Ekklesia in ancient Athens Greece.

2b) In the Ekklesia of Jesus, the women are also called out and allowed come in the building to hear the debate of the doctrine of Jesus. In the Ekklesia of Jesus, the women are not elected to debate the law before the assembly. Women of the Ekklesia of Jesus have one of the most highly regarded positions. The responsibility of caring for the welfare and lives of the children and the men is one of the greatest positions to hold in the Ekklesia and in the kingdom of Jesus. The responsibility for controlling the debate in the Ekklesia of Jesus rest only upon the shoulders of the men members of the Ekklesia. So when men volunteer to fulfill their duties to the Ekklesia, only the men are elected to participate in debate to determine the law of Christ. It is only when men fail to accept their responsibility in the Ekklesia that God will raise women to fulfill the responsibilities of men. In all ancient history of the Ekklesia of Jesus only the men are given the responsibility from God to debate the doctrine of God.

The Ekklesia of Jesus is to edify his kingdom through polemic debate. The Ekklesia of Athens Greece was to edify the democracy of the Greeks of Athens Greece. Then to translate what is the Ekklesia of Jesus correctly, it would make more sense just to transliterate the Bible Greek word “Ekklesia” and remove the word “Church” and its many false definitions.

Keep in mind, at the coming of Jesus, the Greek word Ekklesia did not evolve or change to have a different meaning than the called out Assembly of the Greeks in Athens Greece. To this very day, the word meaning of the Greek Ekklesia remains the same as was used in Athens Greece some five hundred years before Jesus said he will build or -edify (teach) his Ekklesia from a foundation of the Greek Petra or a strong cliff of a rock.

What is the Greek “Apella” that is not the Greek Ekklesia but instead the Greek “Apella” is a closed and part secret organization or a “Cult.”

Now let us compare a different ancient Greek called out assembly that is identified as a “cult” because they refused to hold open polemic debate in the open assembly. At the same time the Greeks in Athens had their Ekklesia, the ancient Greeks in the city of Sparta Greece also had a similar elected group they identified in the Greek as the “Apella.” This elected governing assembly of the “Apella” in Sparta was a very different group from the “Ekklesia” in Athens; because the “Apella” in Sparta had no polemic debate in their place they make decisions of the source of doctrine or law. The Apella in Sparta is correctly identified as a cult because they “occult” when they made some decisions in secret that was suspect of not being the law of Solan and other decisions made in public. When the Apella made some unlawful decisions against the law of Solan the leaders of the Apella refused open the assembly for polemic debate in their assemblies. The Apella in Sparta was a “Cult” which word meaning of what a “Cult” is comes from astronomy meaning to “occult” from light to dark or from secret decisions not made in open and public debate. A “cult” is a controlling group of men who keep the source of their doctrine and activities “secret” and some decisions and activities are open for all to see. It is very simple facts that the cults or churches of today are those who refuse have open polemic debate in their public assemblies to determine the source of their doctrine or belief.

Now we see the original “Ekklesia is an elected governing body of leaders who make polemic or controlled debate to determine law of the state and how and when to make war on the enemies of the state Government. If there is no polemic or open and controlled debate in the place of gatherings, then there is no true or legitimate “Ekklesia.” If there is no open or polemic debate in the gathering and the organization makes secret decisions and sometimes none lawful decisions for the body and then to occult part law and part none law is an organization that is nothing more than a “cult.

Now in your religious organization what qualifies your organization as the true Ekklesia of Jesus? If you identify your organization as the Ekklesia (church) that belongs to Jesus and if your organization has polemic or controlled debate to determine the source of doctrine or law and then decisions that are power to be truth that are made in your open assembly make your organization a true Ekklesia of Jesus. Only when we have open polemic debate of the law of the faith of God we are truly qualified as a true Ekklesia that Jesus builds. If you do not have open polemic debate to determine the source of your doctrine then you are not to be correctly identified as the Ekklesia of Jesus but your organization is correctly qualified as the cult similar to the Greek “Apella.”

We see the leadership of the original “Ekklesia” is a group of elected men who knew and debate law or the doctrine of Jesus similar to our original congress of the United States. In the original understanding of what is the “Ekklesia” of the Greeks in Athens, the women were not allowed in the gathering of the men nor were they allowed to debate to make decisions for the Government which was a democracy. The word Ekklesia was later adapted into the koine or common Greek, which koine Greek language is considered by language scholars to be the ancient worlds most intellectual and descriptive language of that age. (Keep in mind, the Ekklesia of the Greeks in Athens was starting some five hundred years before the coming of Jesus.)

After the Greek ruler Alexander (the great) conquered the Israelites and Jews, a certain ruler of Alexandria Egypt, named “Philadelphus” who ruled over the Jews, wanted to Hellenize all the Israelites by translating the books of Moses and other religious books used by the Jews into the “Common” or “koine” Greek language. Hundreds of years before the coming of Jesus, the Jewish Hebrew Torah (Law) or Pentateuch or “Jewish Bible” was translated into the koine or common Greek and the translation of the religious books were given the name “Septuagint” or “The Seventy.”

The ancient first century Jews, who wrote our Bible, had adapted the koine or common Greek language into their Jewish culture. The peculiar Greek language adapted by the Jews must be identified as the “Judaic Greek dialect” because of the many religious differences between Jews comparing to the pagan religion of the Greeks of Greece. Because of religious differences, many Bible or Judaic Greek words evolved in the Judaic Greek language to have many different meanings comparing to the word meanings given by the Greeks of Greece. Example the masculine Greek word “Hice” or “the one” in the Judaic Bible Greek did not refer to a Greek god of numbers as it did in the classic or koine Greek of Greece. Now notice carefully, the Bible Judaic Greek word “Ekklesia” did -not change word meaning for Jesus or by the Jewish Bible writers of the New Testament Greek that is written only once for all Christians (Jude 1-3).

The Bible Greek word Ekklesia or as men translate the English meaning of the Greek word has the same word meaning as it did some five hundred years before Jesus said he was going to edify his “Ekklesia” from the apostle Peter’s revelation that Jesus is the son of God or the Greek Petra (the giant cliff or foundation). There is only one Ekklesia for each city that will determine the source of law for that city. The function of the Ekklesia of Jesus remains essentially the same for the government of God as it did in the government of the Greeks of Athens.

The true meaning of the Greek word “Ekklesia” when written in the Bible Greek is understood to have the same meaning as the certain called out group of Greek men who were “called out” to debate the law to edify the source of law and direction to make war against the enemy in the democracy of Athens Greece. The spiritual Ekklesia or the called out of the kingdom of Jesus are elected to through polemic debate, reason how to make spiritual war for the cause of the spiritual kingdom, the same as the Ekklesia did in the Classic and koine Greek for their physical government of Athens Greece.

The “Ekklesia” of ancient Athens Greece for some five hundred years before the coming of Jesus, was a type of the spiritual Ekklesia that Jesus said he was going too established to make spiritual war to protect his spiritual kingdom from the gates of Hell. What the elected “Ekklesia” was in Athens Greece some five hundred years before the coming of Jesus and to this day, the same Greek word Ekklesia has the same definition as it did near three thousand years ago. The key element of the called out or the Ekklesia of Jesus is polemic debate in the open assembly to best determine the scriptural source of the doctrine of Jesus in how to make spiritual war against the gates of hell.

Now what have we discovered in our Bible study of Greek history of the Ekklesia in Athens and the Ekklesia that Jesus declares he is going to build? The first recorded Greek “Ekklesia” (or if you insist the church) is recorded to be in Athens Greece. The Ekklesia of the Greeks in ancient Athens Greece was a “called out “ group of elected officials or lawyers whose duty was to use controlled or polemic debate in the called out gathering to determine doctrine or law given by Solan. The duty of the elected “Ekklesia” (or translated church) is to decide for the Kingdom how to make war against the enemies of the state or the Government or the kingdom of God. The duty of the Ekklesia or church of Jesus is through open polemic debate within the called out of the assembly, to decide before all in the kingdom, when and how to lawfully war against the enemies of the Kingdom.

The true translation for the Greek Bible word Ekklesia would shock the Christian world only if there were true definitions in translations that describe what is the “Ekklesia” that Jesus is said he was going to establish. However as long as we have false translations, only a hand full of true believers will ever accept the true definition of the Bible Greek “Ekklesia.” Let us say that you believe that you are in the kingdom of Jesus but the question is does the kingdom of your king, have an “Ekklesia or do you belong to the Ekklesia that Jesus said he was going to establish to -edify his kingdom. We state emphatically that in the true definition of the Greek word “Ekklesia” it is not possible for you to, in -truth, translate the spiritual Ekklesia that Jesus built to edify the kingdom of God as the English word “church?” The Greek Edifice is a building but the “edifice” is also the ground school for edifying. The Ekklesia edifies through open called our gathering in polemic debate the difference in how to teach or preach the doctrine of God. We have Bible teachers that teach that Jesus does not have a doctrine therefore we are not under any doctrine or law to make open polemic debate in our assemblies. Note the words of Jesus

John 7:16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

The answer to the most important question in you life as a in the struggle to be “Christian” is who started your “Church” if you belong to a “Church.” Is your church really a “Church of Christ” or should your organization be identified in truth as “The Ekklesia of Christ”? In the true word definition of the English word “church” comparing to the Bible Greek word “Ekklesia” there is a vast difference between what “The Church of Christ” is comparing to what “The Ekklesia of Christ” is. On the surface, this word definition may not seem be of much importance to you but when truth is discovered, most who love truth see there is a world of difference between what the “church” is comparing to what the “Ekklesia” of Jesus is

Next we question is the Christian under any law and if he is under law who gives us doctrine or who gives Christians doctrine or Law? There are a multitude of “Churches” who teach they are not under law and they would not dare open their assemblies to debate the source of their false teaching.

Question, would it make any difference to you if you knew for certain that if your Church refuse to hold open polemic debate in the assembly, then your “church” is not be scripturally understood to be any part of the Ekklesia that Jesus built?

Question, how often in your “church” do you hold open polemic debate with those who oppose the source of your church doctrine? If your “church” does not hold open polemic debate in your assemblies with those who oppose the source of your church doctrine, then your church organization is a cult of the world and can not be any part of a true scriptural Christian organization.

If your called out assembly -does hold open polemic debate with those who oppose the source of your church doctrine, then in truth you are not to be identified as any of the English dictionary definitions of what a “church” is, but if your organization does obey God though holding polemic debate would in truth be a true scriptural Ekklesia. The world has many different sources of doctrine to create many kinds of churches but there is only one scriptural source to create only one kind of Ekklesia of the Christ.

Did you know that if every organization that makes the claim to be a “Church” belonging to Christ, would open their assembly to controlled debate the source of their doctrine they claim to be from God, then truth would reveal the true source of false church doctrine and 99% of all so called “church cults” would no longer exist.

The first purpose of the Ekklesia of Jesus is specifically designed to stop the origination of false doctrine from disciples of Satan that causes division in the called out assembly of Christ. Only “church cults” have something dreadful to hide in the source of their church doctrine and the cults refuse to become the true Ekklesia of Jesus through polemic debate of the scriptures.

I must warn you, in all my seventy years of Bible study, in my understanding; it is not possible for those in a Church cult to be saved. Later in this article we will define what a “church cult” is.

Another question, would you prefer to do what Jesus commands you to do or do you prefer to do what Satan wants you to do? It is your choice, but you can not have acceptable worship in a “church cult” and at the same time have acceptable worship in the Ekklesia of Jesus.

Do you prefer to be a “church cult” and reject open polemic debate in your church assemblies or would you prefer to be the true Ekklesia of the Christ and open your assemblies to open polemic debate on issues that determine the source of doctrine either from God or from the disciples of Satan?

Now the “church cults” teach that Jesus did not have a doctrine or law to debate. If there is anything that a church cult hates is the words doctrine or law or called out assembly to debate source of doctrine.

John 7:16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

Acts 2:42 ¶ And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

1 Timothy 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.

1 Timothy 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears

How many church cults that you know will teach truth that you will save yourself by keeping sound doctrine and teaching the doctrine to others? Most Church cults would rather choose to kill you than allow you to debate the source of their doctrine in their open assembly. Question, would you rather if you could stop debate in your public assemblies and then, if you could, would you like to skin alive all those who oppose your church doctrine (if your “church” so much as makes the claim to have a church doctrine). Those who would oppose your church doctrine, would you rather burn them alive with fire at the stake than debate to discover what truth is? Physically killing, by burning alive or skinning alive the opposition is the preferred method of church cults when dealing with those who oppose the doctrine of church cults. This day there are some church cults that are taking down the names of those who oppose their false doctrine and reveal that they are only church cults made by man.

Do you hate those who reveal your apostate doctrine and do you invent new church doctrine to try and support false church doctrine? Perhaps your church does not so much as have a doctrine to defend and you hate those who debate to proclaim the doctrine of God in their public assemblies.

When some one makes the claim that your organization is teaching digressive doctrine, then does your church reply with the excuses that the opposition are a legalist and divisive and refuse to debate the charges made against them?

To understand what the Bible Ekklesia is, you must go back in Greek History some five hundred years before the coming of Jesus. To discover what is the word meaning of the Greek “Ekklesia.” and then we must define all the uses of the name Ekklesia to begin to understand what the Ekklesia of Jesus is.

If the word “Ekklesia” is translated in your Bible as “Church” then I am warning you, your Bible is giving you a false name with a false definition of what is an Ekklesia of the Christ.

The ancient fourth century apostate cult which today identifies herself as the Catholic Church to continue to deceive their people was forced by word definition to change the understanding of what the true Ekklesia of Jesus is. To be able to stop open polemic debate in their assemblies and to continue to teach false doctrine, it became necessary for the fourth century apostate “Church” to change true understanding of what is the true definition of the Greek “Ekklesia of the Christ.”

The purpose of the fourth century Catholic Church changing the Ekklesia of Jesus to the name of a “Church” was for the only purpose to remove polemic debate from their public assemblies.

All the ancient Christian people of God knew exactly what the purpose of the Ekklesia of Jesus was designed to be.

The ancient cult of the Catholic Church has made many changes in Bible word definition only to deceive the whole world. If the Catholic Church had not changed true understanding of the Ekklesia of Jesus, the Catholic Church would not exist as it does today. Perhaps if your “Church” did not hold open polemic debate in your open assembles but now would begin to do so, your organization would no longer exist either.

In all the English language there is not one word definition that will give a true definition of what the Ekklesia of Jesus is. Today inherit in the true word meaning of what is an “Ekklesia’ terrifies the church cults and if they do become a true Ekklesia that spells a certain death of the multitude of organizations of the worlds so called Christian “churches.” It is proven through polemic debate and by the word definition of what the Ekklesia of Jesus is that most all churches of the world are nothing more than church cults. Because of their digressive church doctrine most “churches” would not dare become a true Ekklesia of the Christ and begin to hold open polemic debate in their called out assemblies.

Is your church an open assembly designed by Jesus with the only purpose to edify His Ekklesia through open polemic or controlled debate so your Ekklesia can fight against the gates of hell?

Now notice carefully, I did not question would your organization debate your doctrine of your church but would your church -open your assembly to polemic debate the source of your church doctrine? If your church refuses to hold open polemic debate the difference in your doctrine from the true ecclesia of Jesus, then your organization is a cult and not the true Ekklesia of the Christ. A church cult has something dreadful to hide the source of their church doctrine.

In this new information age there is some world shaking changes coming from the truth of Bible word definition. Men have pummeled and twisted the Bible translated records to try and make the Bible record support their idiosyncrasies of their multitude of false religions.

When truth in word definition is finally established, the power of God through the Bible text will shake and shape the world into the most awesome doctrine or law revealing the awesome supper times of our God.

Jesus taught that the doctrine or law that he was teaching was not his but the law he was teaching was law or doctrine from God the Father

Now Satan and his disciples are going to tell us that in the New Testament there is no law given as the New Testament. Then any one who tries to be legal or lawful they will identify them as being legalist because they want to obey doctrine o please God or to be lawful. It terrifies the disciple of Satan to reason that God demands that they hold to the doctrine of God and to be lawful or legal.

Men falsely translate the Bible record to try to deceive the Christian into the false belief that they are not under any legal doctrine or law from God.

Does your church accept that God has a doctrine or a law for your church? The key word in the definition of what is the Ekklesia of Jesus is open contention or debate against division and false doctrine or those who divide against the Ekklesia of Jesus. The Ekklesia is established for the purpose to debate His doctrine or the law of God. If you’re truly in the called out Assembly of God you will debate in your assemblies. If your organization refuses open debate in your assemblies but instead make decisions secretly behind closed doors, then your organizations is correctly identified as a closed or secrete assembly or a “church” of a religious cult. Because all decisions of how to make war against the gates of hell are decided through open contention, The Ekklesia of Jesus can not possibly be any part of a cult.

When you hear the word “Church” do you immediately think of people called out to debate the law of God to determine truth in how to make war against the enemies of God? If in your understanding of the English word “church” you do not hold the understanding of a calling out to polemic debate to determine the law of God than you got the wrong understanding? If there is no debate in your assemblies then the English word “church” has given you a false definition in understanding what the true Ekklesia of Jesus really is.

Now I am going to say it in truth and some are not going to like it but that is the way truth is rejected by most that hold to false beliefs in their false traditions. Jesus did not build any “Church” but instead Jesus said he was going to build his “Ekklesia” which Bible Greek word Ekklesia is not correctly defined by our modern English or by the definition of some Bible Dictionaries.

Some people hate Bible word definition because truth is exposed in word definition and truth in word definition reveals misunderstanding and the apostasy of the thinking of the multitudes of would be Christians.

Men of the Bible read the translated words of Jesus that declare upon this rock I will build my Church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it (Matthew chapter 16 verse 18). This is the world most horrible translation of the Bible according to our modern dictionary of the English word “Church.” Now if you do not believe what I teach here, then all you have to do is make your own search of Greek history and you can easily discover what is the true Ekklesia and the purpose of the Greek “Ekklesia” of Jesus.

Inherit in the true definition of the Greek Bible word ecclesia is defined the function and purpose of the Ecclesia of Jesus. In all the English word definitions of the word “Church” you will not find one definition that declares the church is an elected organization that determines truth through polemic debate the law of God. Then according to true word definition of the translated Greek word Ekklesia of Jesus can not possibly be correctly translated as a “Church. If the Bible word “Church” is a translated misnomer in most translated Bibles, then we must transliterate the Bible Greek word Ekklesia to correct the false translation of the Bible Greek word the “Ekklesia” that Jesus said he was going to edify or build.

So we question who started your false word “Church?” A better stated question is who has started your Bible transliterated “Ekklesia” was it Jesus or was it Satan?”

We discover through the most trusted Bible dictionaries what the true interpretation of the Bible Greek Ekklesia is.

A similar word to the group who gather to compose the Ekklesia of Jesus is the English word “chosen” which is the Greek word “elektos” or the called out “elect” of God? The English word “Elect” can not possibly or correctly describe what the Ekklesia of Jesus is. The word chosen does not spell out precisely what the chosen or the called out are chosen to do while they are elected to serve in the Ekklesia of Jesus.

Another word that is close to the same word that identifies the Ekklesia of Jesus is the “body” of Christ. Mark chapter 13: verse 20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect‘s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

We question what are the acts that complete to make the “one body” of the established kingdom of Christ and the called out Ekklesia of the Christ?

Ephesians chapter 4: verse 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

The organization of the one body of Christ does not correctly identify the Ekklesia of Jesus but the one body more correctly identifies the kingdom of Jesus.

The reason the Ekklesia of Jesus is in the kingdom of God but different in the sense the Ekklesia has a special purpose in the “Kingdom,” which is the whole “Body” or the “Elect.” The special duties of the Ekklesia are special duties that are required only from those who are called out to perform certain duties in the Ekklesia.

The Greek word Ekklesia that is mistranslated as the English word “Church” and the English word “church” has a multitude of different and opposite meanings which are all different from what is the true Ekklesia of Jesus. The Greek Bible word “Ekklesia” must be correctly translated to have only one true meaning of the Ekklesia that Jesus established. The English word “church” has many different and complete opposite meanings than the true word meaning of the Bible Greek Ekklesia.

First I want to give the true English word definition of what is the first ancient English “Church.”

First note this truth very carefully, before I give word definition I want this truth to be fully understood, it is not what we in our words identify ourselves as being, but rather it is our actions that determine who and what we are either the Ekklesia of Jesus or if you prefer to be identified as a “Church.”

So if you are worshipping God in truth, do not be alarmed when I give you the true definition for what the “church” is compared to what the Bible Ekklesia of Jesus is. If in your actions what you identify yourself as a “Bible Church” and your church has open polemic debate in your assemblies with those who oppose your “church doctrine,” then your organization is not a “church” but is correctly identified as the “Ekklesia” of the Christ Jesus.

We may identify ourselves as a “Church” but not realize by our actions we are not really in a true sense “a church” defined by the English dictionary. However if we are obedient to God in our acts of living or worship then by our actions we are the true “Ekklesia” of Jesus.

Now let us discover the true meaning of the most ancient English word “church” and where did the word “church” come from?

The most ancient word “Church” comes from the old English word meaning a “holy or sacred round building.” We will give some of the false definitions of what is mistranslated as the Bible Ekklesia that Jesus did not say he was going to build.

The Catholic Church changed the name of the Ekklesia to English word “Holy Circle house” “Church” to confuse understanding what is the true meaning of the true function or purpose of the Ekklesia of Jesus. The ancient Catholic Church changed the true understanding of the Ekklesia of Jesus to what they begin to identify their religious organization that they claim Jesus build was a “Circle house” or “a church building.”

To continue to digress into their false doctrine, and control the people, the catholic church had to change the true definition of the Ekklesia of Jesus because inherit in the true understanding of what is the true Ekklesia of Jesus would through polemic debate devastate their false teaching of the so called “Catholic church.” Most religious organizations that followed their mother Catholic Church also rejected the true purpose of the Ekklesia of Jesus because through the design of polemic debate in their place of gathering would also devastate their false doctrine.

Here are some of the many false English dictionary word definitions from the translated Bible Greek word Ekklesia that can not possibly be a true identification of the Ekklesia that belongs to God,

False -A Church (church) pronunciation a Noun.

1. A holy or sacred building for public, especially Christian worship.

(Reply, the above definition is false- Jesus did not so much as hint that he was going to build a “church building.”)

2. -often Church –false definition

Partly false definition 1. The company of all Christians regarded as a spiritual body.

(Reply, The Greek Ekklesia is a spiritual body but the original meaning of the Bible Greek word Ekklesia did not include all the people of God in the kingdom will make decision that direct the body of Christ)

False 2. A specified Christian denomination: such as the Presbyterian Church.

(Reply, if we want the true definition of the English word church then this is the true definition of the word “Church” but the above is not a true definition for the spiritual Ekklesia of Jesus. The Ekklesia of the Christ is a group that is impossible to be divided into denominations)

3. A congregation false.

(Reply, True definition of Ekklesia is not just any congregation of People. The Ekklesia of Jesus is the specified called out congregation or the body of the Ekklesia of Jesus and just as the Ekklesia of the Greek in ancient Athens Greece were elected or called out to debate the law to determine when and how to war against the enemy so is the Ekklesia of Jesus designed to debate the law of God to determine how to make war against the gates of hell. The Ekklesia of Jesus is governed by elected officials, such as Elders and Deacons, to direct the assembly and then debate the law of God. The purpose was to determine doctrine through polemic debate in certain matters of how to make war against the gates of hell or the enemies of the kingdom of God.) We continue the English dictionary definitions of the word “church.”

4. Public divine worship in a church; a religious service: goes to church at Christmas and Easter.

(Reply, all the above is -false definitions of the Ekklesia of Jesus. This is a complete deceptive definition of the activities and duties of the called out of the Ekklesia of Jesus.)

False 4. The clerical profession; clergy.

(The above definition of Ekklesia is half true only for the English word church but is a false definition for the “Ekklesia” of Jesus. The leader of the Ekklesia can only be elected by a show of hands by the Ekklesia and considered as only a part of the called out or elected spiritual Ekklesia of Jesus.)

False 5. Ecclesiastical power as distinguished from the secular: the separation of church and state.

(Reply, the above statement is absolutely wrong. Separation of the Ekklesia from the “state” is direct from the teaching of the disciples of Satan. Satan and his disciples make a separation or distinction between the Ekklesia of Jesus from the state government. The Ekklesia of Jesus is over all flesh and is declared to be the state of the case and the Ekklesia has all control of all the state both flesh and spirit. Read the following verses.

John 17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

Rom 9:5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.

Eph 1:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the Ekklesia (mistranslated church).

Now you may have separation between “Church’ and your state government but my friends you can not have separation between the “Ekklesia” of Jesus and physical State government or spiritual kingdom of Jesus.

It is past time that all Christians wake up and begin to exalt Jesus to his rightful place over all flesh in his spiritual kingdom over all the flesh of the earth. There is no separation of the duties of the “Ekklesia of Jesus” and the state of the kingdom of Jesus.

Christians have not militantly exalted Jesus in his rightful place as the head over all flesh. Instead Christians have turned government control over to Satan and his disciples to lead them and their “church.” Jesus is head over all the state both over flesh and the spirit. The state of Satan does not accept Jesus as their head. God has put Jesus and his followers in control over all things including all fleshly governments. We easily see how most Christian have failed God. The churches may separate from the state government and the churches may not demand Jesus to be over the state government. However the called out Ekklesia of Jesus demands that all governments to be militant strict both over all the spiritual and physical under the direction of the doctrine or law of Jesus.

We continue our dictionary definition of the English word “Church.”

False tr.v., churched, church·ing, church·es. To conduct a church service for, especially to perform a religious service for (a woman after childbirth).

As an adjective.

(Reply, the Ekklesia is not defined as a religious rite, but the Ekklesia of Jesus is defined as an elected group who determines when and how to go to war against the enemies of God).

(Second reply to 5, the Greek Ekklesia is the controlling called out body whose duty is to through polemic debate determine how and when to make war against the enemies of God but not a specific gathering for worship.)

A false definition relating to the church as; ecclesiastical.

(My Reply to the original word church as relating to the spiritual Ekklesia of Jesus or the elected called out council is a false definition.)

Now here is where the ancient word church was first conceived in the most ancient English language.

[Middle English chirche, from Old English cirice, meaning a circle or sacred and holy building made for the worship of pagan gods.”

(Reply to the false definition of the Bible word Ekklesia above. Any student can see the ancient English word “Cirice” is the ancient spelling for the ancient English word “circle” as round or a compass. It is impossible for the Greek Bible word to be translated as a “Building. The meaning of the Greek word Ekklesia as the English word “Church” is a false addition to the record to confuse the Bible student.

More false definitions of the Bible

Ekklesia of Jesus mistranslated as the word “Church is “ultimately the word “Church” is from Medieval Greek ku-rikon, from Late Greek ku-riakon (do-ma), the Lord’s (house), neuter of Greek ku-riakos, of the lord, from ku-rios, lord.]”

(Reply, this is a false definition because in the entire Bible there is no where mentioned in the Bible Greek Ekklesia having any affinity to the Hebrew Kuriakon or “the Lord’s house.”

To use the word “Church” and its many different definitions compared to the true “Ekklesia of Jesus” is false when giving a “Church” definition of the New Testament Greek Ekklesia. Not in any place at any time did the original Greeks of Greece call their assembly as the building or house of the Lord.)

Now as you can see by the definition of the English word “Church” the actions that determine what is an Ekklesia of Jesus, by the actions of your organization you may not be a true “Church” at all according to the true English word definition of the word “church.” So do not be alarmed if you discover you are not a true church but instead by your action you are correctly identified as the true Ekklesia of the Christ.

In our Bible records there was an Ekklesia of the Goddess Diana. If you think the Greek word Ekklesia should be translated “church” then according to your thinking there is a Bible record of a pagan Ekklesia or church of the goddess Diana. Let us examine the function of debate in the -Ekklesia of the goddess Diana of the Ephesians (Act chapter 19 verse 34). The called out gathering or the Ekklesia of the goddess Diana was through open debate, decide what and how to fight against “Christians” who are the enemies of the goddess Diana. Now let us observe an example of an Ekklesia of the goddess Diana and the function of the Greek Ekklesia in Ephesus but this Ekklesia in Ephesus is not an Ekklesia that belongs to Jesus but to the goddess Diana.

In Ephesus there was a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith, who made silver shrines of Diana, brought no little business unto the craftsmen; Demetrius called together the Ekklesia of men of his same occupation to debate what to do with the enemies of their goddess Diana. Then Demetrius said in debate to the Ekklesia, Sirs, ye know that by this business we have our wealth.

26 And ye see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they are no gods, that are made with hands:

27 and not only is there danger that this our trade come into disrepute; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana be made of no account, and that she should even be deposed from her magnificence whom all Asia and the world worshippeth.

28 And when they heard this they were filled with wrath, and cried out, saying, Great is Diana of the Ephesus.

29 And the city was filled with the confusion: and they rushed with one accord into the theatre, having seized Gaius and Aristarchus, men of Macedonia, Paul’s companions in travel.

Now notice this example and actions of the Ekklesia of Christ, men gather and debate one of the most important decisions for all Christians (Acts chapter 15 verses 1 through 29). There was a question that caused division when some taught that all Christian must keep the Law of Moses, the holy days, washing pots and pans, the keeping of the Sabbath day and the need of men to be physically circumcised. Then the apostles and elders came to the Ekklesia in Jerusalem to debate the question of keeping the Law of Moses compared to keeping the law of Christ for all Christians. Read this record and see how the Ekklesia of Jesus edifies all Christians through polemic debate. Now the question is does your Church group have open polemic debate with those who oppose what you teach? If your group refuses to open your assembly to polemic debate with those who oppose what you teach, then your group is not the Ekklesia of the Christ but rather a “church” of Satan that has something dreadful to hide in your “Church” doctrine. Without open and polemic debate in your assembly with those who oppose what you teach, it is impossible to be the true Ekklesia of the Christ.

Again we have records of the apostle Paul debating the scriptures with the Jews but translators of the cults refuse to translate so you would know it is the duty of the Ekklesia to debate. This is the translation by the cults Acts 18:28. 28 For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publickly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.

Now notice the true translation of Acts 18:28 by the NIV. For he vigorously refuted the Jews in public debate, proving from the Scriptures that Jesus was the Christ.

Public or polemic (controlled) debate see Strong’s Greek word number 246 diakatelegcomai diakatelegchomai dee-ak-at-el-eng’-khom-ahee

middle voice from 1223 and a compound of 2596 and 1651; ;v “to confute with rivalry and effort or in a contest to convince”

History of the One True and living Ekklesia or called out assembly that belongs to Christ, comparing to false churches built with false doctrine imagined by false men who refuse polemic debate in their open assemblies.

Today many are teaching that the English word “Church” is a false translation of the Ekklesia of Jesus. However we need to be careful of men who find fault in translating the Greek Bible word “Ekklesia” as the most ancient English word “Church” only to further their doctrine of the Devil.

If men are trying to get every Greek word in the Bible translated into it’s true understanding, then we must agree, they have the best motive to teach that the English word “Church” should not be translated in our Bibles as the English word “church” but instead should be translated into the English as “The called out assembly of the kingdom of Christ” or “The directors of the Kingdom or the assembly of Christ.” However we must take note, the New Testament Greek language, there are words in Bible Greek that can not be precisely described through translations into the English Language. The Greek word “Ekklesia” or as men translate the Ekklesia into English as the word “Church” just happens to be one of those Greek words that have no precise word in English to identify the Greek “Ekklesia” of Jesus.

The Ekklesia of Jesus is only established through controlled or polemic debate. If you make the claim to be the Ekklesia of Jesus, do you hold polemic debate in your assemblies to determine how to make war against the gates of hell?

Does your organization or “Church” hold polemic debate in their public assemblies to determine law or doctrine of God? Now we only learn from the Bible that Jesus builds or edifies only one Ekklesia or one assembly. Does it not make good sense if you want to be a member of the Ekklesia that Jesus built, you should choose a group who make decisions in open debate in their assembly, how to use the original Bible records to teach us how to become a member of the Ekklesia that Jesus builds? Ask yourself, what will happen if the Ekklesia or church of my choice decides to become a true Ekklesia of Jesus and begin to openly debate in our assembly our differences with the doctrine of other organizations that are identified as “churches?”

Can you imagine what would happen if the Mormons, the Russellites who falsely identify themselves as Jehovah’s witness and the catholic ‘church” would only open their assemblies to a controlled or polemic debate their doctrine with those who oppose them? It will never happen because these false organizations know the truth discovered through polemic debate would devastate their false rule and the false doctrine their organization hold over their people.

Now again let us examine the original English word “Church” and then compare the definition of the English word “Church” to the true Bible Greek word “Ekklesia.”

Here is the example of what is the true “Church.”

Two ancient men named Oleg and Mautuf understand only that their ancient “church” to them is only a holy or a sacred “round building.” Oleg and Mautuf were two ancient Celtic pagans who worshiped their pagan god in their public holy building they identify as their “church.” Oleg says to Mautuf come let us go to the “Church” and pray to our god in the holy church building. Notice the building was adored by the ancient Celts as being sacred or holy to the pagans and the name of the pagan building was the origin or derivative of our modern English word “Church.” Then the first English “church” was only a round building and the round building is considered by the pagans to be sacred or holy. As you can see the original pagan word “church” has no likeness or no affinity to the Greek foundation through which Jesus edifies his Ekklesia to that is originally designed to debate source of doctrine or the law and destroy the false teaching of the gates of Hell.

First let us reason some necessary technical phonetics and unimportant semantics that men use to fight against the true and living Ekklesia of the Christ. There is a world wide movement by the -opposers of God, to use a little truth in phonetics or semantics about the most ancient definition of the word “Church” to cause confusion in the modern evolved English word “Church.” So certain men try to appear to be more knowledgeable and wreck the understanding of what is the “Ekklesia” or the called out organization that belongs to the Christ.

Some try to put on a show of a higher intellect for the only purpose to get you to accept their false teaching about their “Church.” The opposers of God or the enemy of the kingdom of Jesus use the word “Church” for their only purpose to cripple the understanding of what is the true “Ekklesia that Jesus established to determine war against the enemies of the kingdom of God. They also want to divide what is in today’s language that identifies the called out Assembly of God by rejecting the phonetic English word “Church” because the English word “Church” was at the beginning used only to identify what was thought to be a holy and sacred “building.”

What is a “Church” compared to the Greek “Ekklesia” that Jesus builds.

Question that must be answered in truth, is your religious organization you call “church” the true Bible Greek “Ekklesia” or is your “church” in truth more cultic like the ancient Greek “Apella?” Perhaps the church of your choice is neither like the true Bible Greek “Ekklesia” nor like the ancient Greek “Apella.” but is more cultic than either type of organizations.

What is a “cult” and who can correctly be identified as the “church” cult?

A modern church cult is considered to be a heinous organization devised by the disciples of Satan. In different “Churches” today we hear opposing discussions and then the accusation as each who discuss opposing doctrine sometime identify the other as a “Cult.” If we understand in truth what the true Ekklesia of Jesus is, then we know it is impossible to correctly identify the true Ekklesia of Jesus in their open debate as a “Cult.”

To determine what The Correct meaning of the Word “Cult” is adapted from the word occult. We want to explore the English word “cult,” from the root word meaning to “occult” as is used in astronomy.

Know for certain the difference between the “Cults” or the churches or the assemblies of the gates of hell that refuse open polemic debate in their assemblies and then compare the gates of hell to the true Ekklesia of the Christ who do have polemic debates in their assemblies. Beware; it is proven through scripture, it is impossible to be saved while belonging to a church “Cult.” Do you want to be saved, then get out of the church cult and get into the true Ekklesia of the Christ? To understand the correct definition of what is a scriptural “cult” has nothing to do with control of membership as long as control of members of the Ekklesia is authorized by scripture.

Today we hear the word “cult,” being used as a misnomer, by applying the word cult to anyone who is teaching a religious doctrine different from what others are teaching. If the religious group “A” is teaching something different from the religious group “B,” then both may name each other as a “cult.” Both accusers of being cults may in truth both be “cults” if both refuse to hold open polemic debate to determine source of doctrine in their assembles with those who oppose their doctrine. The world is full of church cults that are nothing more that gates of hell. The world is full of churches that refuse open polemic debate with those of the true Ekklesia of the Christ who oppose their false doctrines.

The word cult comes from the word meaning to “occult” as is used in astronomy. To visibly occult, is meaning to apparently grow dark, to be part secret or keep the source of certain parts of religious activities hidden from view and then from out of dark reveal part of the source , to grow part into view or to grow or to expose or to teach part visible light or truth. Every church cult has at the least a little scriptural truth to reveal only a small source of their teaching to prove at least some of what they teach is from the Bible. . Every church cult has to have at the least a little truth or no one would be attracted to the church cult.

To be a true cult, the religious cult must keep some parts of the source of their religious activities’ secret when compared to scripture, and some things from the scriptural source is open for all to see, in the true cults of this world.

A religious cult, hide the truth and does not allow the source of everything false and deceitful doctrine about themselves to be openly compared to scripture in their assemblies. The cult will not allow the source of their doctrine or their religious activities to be openly compared to scripture by those who oppose their false teaching. The church cult keep the source of the names, scriptural error in some beliefs and many parts of their religious activity’s hidden or secret from open revelation in their assemblies.

God designs the Ekklesia that is falsely translated as “church” to use open or public discussion in the gatherings of the Ekklesia, to purify the understanding and the true work of the Ekklesia or if you insist the word “Church.”

The true ekklesia of Jesus is impossible to be a cult because they hold in their pubic gatherings open polemic on the doctrine of God comparing to the teaching of the Bible. All churches which do not allow open polemic debates in their assemblies are religious cults. A religious cult hides and rejects the truth and will not allow the source of the teaching in open and public Bible discussion of their false teaching that divide their gatherings from the true Ekklesia of the Christ. All churches are cults because they will not allow their doctrine to be compared to Bible teaching by the opposition in their open assembly.

A religious cult will never tell you the true definition of what a cult is, if the definition of “cult” condemns their present practice. The cult will not tell you the names and the qualification of the men who translate their Bible into the English language or the qualification of those who make religious decision for them to keep. Every “church” that rejects polemic debate in their public assemblies is a “Cult” of Satan. The leaders of the cults of Satan will make all kinds of excuses for their refusal to hold open polemic debate on controversial subjects that divide from the true Ekklesia of the Christ.

A cult is mind controlling and will not allow its members to be open minded, to investigate tracts or the writings and teaching of others, so they can decide for self what truth is.

A true “religious cult” will not tell you the names and the qualification of the men who tell the cult what parts of their translated Bible they must deny, accept or teach. The cult members without polemic debate with the opposition to determine source, must accept and do what their leaders teach them how they must interpret their Bible and worship and conduct themselves. This is the true definition of modern English word “cult.”

The English word cult is derived from the ancient understanding to “Occult” as is observed in astronomy. The appearance of light is occulting to darkness. To be a true cult there must be a hidden agenda of the original source or to be dark or secret.

First let us agree it is not how or what we and others identify ourselves that determines who or what we are, it is only how we conduct ourselves that determines who and what we are. It is not always true what we identify ourselves as a church or an Ekklesia of Jesus but how we conduct ourselves according to scripture will determine what we are.

Now let us note the difference between the ancient Greek “Ekklesia” of Athens Greece and the cultic Greek “Apella” of Sparta Greece and compare to the true Ekklesia of Jesus. The Ekklesia has no secrets for they hold open polemic debate and the secrets of the cultic Apella do not have open polemic debate. Only Jesus has an Ekklesia and the Ekklesia of Jesus can never be identified as an Apella or a “Cult.” Jesus does not have an “Apella” who keeps secret some of its false teaching it its organization. Then the organizations that refuse openly debate in their assemblies are correctly identified as an “Apella” or an organization of Satan. It is impossible to correctly name the Ekklesia of Jesus as a cult because they in every case of opposition open their lives and teaching to debate in public scrutiny to determine the source of their beliefs.

The Apella in their teaching is part secret and part open to the public. Only the organizations that are identified as the “Apella” can be identified as a “cult.” In the true understanding of the true “Ekklesia” it is impossible for the “Ekklesia of Jesus” to be identified correctly as a “cult.” So in all so called “Churches” who refuse to hold open polemic debate, it is impossible to correctly identify the Apella type church as the true Ekklesia of Jesus. All who refuse to hold open debate in the assemblies are identified correctly as an “Apella” or “church cult.”

Jesus declared to his disciples “upon this rock I will edify or build” my Ekklesia” or Jesus is saying to his apostles that he will build “my called out assembly for polemic debate to edify against the gates of hell.’

Jesus did not say word for word that he would establish polemic debate in his Ekklesia. However in the very definition of what the Greek Ekklesia or the elected assembly is only designed to hold polemic debate with the opposing gates of hell as the important part of the function of the Ekklesia of Jesus.

The purpose of the “Ekklesia” of Jesus is to edify or “teach” doctrine and it is horribly mistranslated in most English Bibles as the English word “Church.” (See Bible records of the Ekklesia written in Matthew chapter 16: verses 16-18).

Let us first question, have you ever heard the -true definition of the Ekklesia that Jesus said he was going to build or edify?

Today the English word “Church” also has a multitude of different meanings in the English language. The Ekklesia that Jesus said would edify against the gates of hell was through polemic debate. It is impossible to define the Greek Ekklesia of Jesus to be all the many different meanings of the many different things that the English word “church” identifies. Because of religious error most English speaking people do not have the foggiest understanding of what is the true Bible “Ekklesia” of Jesus? We hear many say the Ekklesia of Jesus is the called out “church” that Jesus established for his Kingdom. We ask called out to do what? Most leaders of their church do not want to hear what the Ekklesia of Jesus is called out to do. Truth of what is the “Ekklesia” established by Jesus will shock the understanding of most students of the Bible.

If you have a true “Ekklesia” that debates doctrine or law, then who started or who builds (edifies) your “Ekklesia”?

What is the Ekklesia most English speaking people call the “Church” that Jesus is supposed to build or edify? Let us examine the original Greek Bible records to discover truth to determine what the Ekklesia of Jesus is that he said he was going to edify or build. Then let us compare the “Ekklesia” of Jesus to what men identify as -a “Church?

There are thousands of different organizations men call “churches.” Some call their buildings a “Church”. Some think their buildings are a holy “Church.” All church organizations exist with thousands of different laws or doctrines. Some church organizations do not so much as have a doctrine or law. Many so called “Churches” reject having any specific doctrine or law. Now know this truth and keep this truth in mind, most all so called “Churches” hate and they are terrified of the true definition of what is the true “Ekklesia” of Jesus. Many leaders of most “Churches” shrink back in fear of the true definition of what is the true “Ekklesia” that Jesus uses to edify his Kingdom. When you finish this study about the true Ekklesia of Jesus, go and visit all who identify themselves as a “Church” and discover the fear of church leaders who refuse to open their assemblies to debate their different and opposing doctrine in the open gathered assembly.

Now for a moment let us examine the Bible Greek word Ekklesia that men translate into the English as the word “church.” The Strong’s Bible Greek word that Jesus used to say he will “Build/” The Bible Greek word meaning to build is the Strong’s Greek dictionary number .3618 oikodomew oikodomeo pronounced as “oy-kod-om-eh”. Oy-kod-om-eh is the word Jesus used to identify he will “build up” or “edify” the kingdom of God through his Ekklesia or church. To “build” is meaning to “edify” or in the sense to teach and through teaching organize doctrine for the government of the kingdom of God.

Keep in mind that the building up to edify doctrine or law of the Christian to war or fight against the gates of hell is what goes into and is recorded in the brain of the members of the kingdom of God. The Ekklesia of Jesus is designed by Jesus, he said is to build upon or “To edify” or to build through the works of the “Ekklesia” for the kingdom of God, is made upon the foundation of the Greek “Petra” which is from the giant cliff of a rock or the Ekklesia is “built” to teach from the Petra or from an unmovable foundation. Jesus declares as longs as you have the true established “Ekklesia” the gates of Hell will not or can not prevail against his called out group Ekklesia. Do you belong to this true “Ekklesia” that is called out and is guiding and making decisions for your members of your assembly in the kingdom of God?

Notice carefully now, not every one in the kingdom is the Ekklesia or the “called out” to debate the law of how to fight the enemy. You must be elected by a show of hands by the Ekklesia and you must know the law to debate the law of the spiritual kingdom of Jesus.

Now know this for certain, if your religious group does not hold controlled or polemic debate in it’s assembly for the purpose to determine law of the spirit, then your religious affiliation does not so much as have an “Ekklesia” authorized for the kingdom by Jesus.

Now we question, did Jesus give a doctrine or law to his “Ekklesia” that is be debated by the elected leaders in the public assembly to direct how and when to spiritually war against the enemies of God?” There are “churches” that deny that God has given the Ekklesia of Christ “doctrine” or “law” to live and worship by.

Our God has given us doctrine to defend.

Jesus warns John chapter 7: verse 16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

Jude also warns us we must contend, debate or defend the doctrine or law of God that was written only once for all times to the saints of God. Jude 3 ¶ Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

Hebrews chapter 6: verse 1 Wherefore leaving the doctrine of the first principles of Christ, let us press on unto perfection; not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

Titus chapter 2: verse 1 But speak thou the things which befit the sound doctrine:

First Timothy chapter 6: verse 3 If any man teacheth a different doctrine, and consenteth not to sound words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

Second Timothy chapter 4: verse 3 For the time will come when they will not endure the sound doctrine; but, having itching ears, will heap to themselves teachers after their own lusts;

In the religion of your choice, who ordains and who in the public assembly through polemic debate determines “the source of doctrine or law” that the apostle Paul warns that you must keep the doctrine to save yourself (first Timothy chapter 4: verse 16)?

Does your religious assembly have an “Ekklesia” or an elected group of leaders who contend or debate the law of Jesus to determine how to conduct the spiritual war against the “gates of Hell” or the spiritual enemies of the kingdom of God?

Are you certain you will be saved by the doctrine determined through polemic debate in the Ekklesia of your choice?

Do you know of a group who opens their assembly for the purpose to debate the doctrine of God? Y’ahsus or Jesus taught my doctrine is not mine but his (or the doctrine from God) who sent me (see John chapter 7 verse 16).

Who is the head or authority in your assembly? Who through polemic debate determines true doctrine against the opposition and also determines doctrine that edifies your assembly?

We must have polemic debate to determine how many Ekklesias did Jesus build to edify his kingdom from how may different foundations?

The Ekklesia of Jesus is an elected group of officials who are authorized to debate the law of Jesus, to determine how to spiritually war against the spiritual enemies of God

We must have polemic debate in the called out or the Ekklesia to determine what doctrine or law divides from the Ekklesia that Jesus built from so called “churches” who refuse to open their assembly to debate the doctrine of Jesus. Remember the true definition of a “Cult” is one who keeps secret their false doctrine. A church cult is one who refuses to open their assembly to debate the doctrine of Christ.

Question, did the God of creation authorize polemic debate for the assembly to determine in spirit and truth, so all in the kingdom of God can unite in one doctrine as the one true Ekklesia? Does your “Church” assembly hold polemic debate? If they do not hold public debate then your assembly is a church “Cult” and your church organization can not be identified as the true “Ekklesia’ of Jesus.

The Ekklesia of Jesus is in truth when there is a group whose duty is to openly debate the doctrine of Jesus. Those who identify themselves as the Ekklesia of Jesus but refuse to hold polemic debate in their public assemblies, then they can not possibly be identified in truth as the true and living Ekklesia of Jesus but as a “cult” and they have something dreadful to hide from their church members.

Can an “Ekklesia” in truth make the claim to be the true and living Ekklesia or true and living called out assembly of Christ but hide their false doctrine in their “church,” and make a multitude of excuses for their refusal to open their assemblies to polemic debate about their very different “church” doctrine?

In the kingdom of the devil, he will not allow open and public debate in his assembly, because he knows the truth will be revealed about his many deceptions.

The apostle Paul wrote Ephesians 4:

1b Walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,

2 ¶ With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;

3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

5 One Lord, one faith, one immersion,

6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Notice, Paul said there is only one body or Ekklesia which is one “assembly.”

Men build all kinds of different churches with different doctrines (Laws).

Some digress in their ignorance when they say come let us go to church meaning to the church building, or perhaps to house of worship. We are going to have church in my house on Sunday or near the resurrection moment at early dark on the night of day One (Saturday night).

We hear others today say when it is time to begin the worship; “Come on let us have church.” “Let us get church started.”

The most ancient “Ekklesia” or called out assembly of Christ was held in the home. God through the Old Testament and in the New Testament designs the home as the first place for worship. Home worship is the bulwark of God for the church in Christian living (Exodus chapter 12 and Acts chapter 2).

Those who practice home worship in strict and the purest doctrine of Christ, grow faster than the Ekklesia who gather in public buildings. Many proud, lazy and money grubbing preachers hate home worship because home worship removes the control of the money and keep the true doctrine of Ekklesia from their control.

Jesus built his Ekklesia and then gave it a specific doctrine of faith which is the law (The Greek “nomos “) of faith to the Ekklesia (Romans 3:27). The doctrine that Jesus gives to his Ekklesia is given only through the Holy Spirit only one time (Jude 2).

Only the Jews of the first century are allowed through the power of the Holy Spirit, to give the law or doctrine of the Ekklesia that belongs to Christ. All men are judged by the law that was given only once or only at one time. (See James chapter 2 verse 12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty. Galatians 6:2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ).

Church doctrine is what divides between the Ekklesia that Christ built and from “churches” that men build. The doctrine or the law of Christ teaches only one head of one body. Doctrine or law determines the conduct and appearance of the body or the church.

There are thousands of different doctrines all make the false claim that Jesus the Christ or the pope or president is the head of their “church.” The “Ekklesia of Jesus has only one head. Many different doctrines of many different “churches” is like a monster with many different bodies with many different heads.

The apostle Paul wrote showing it is extremely important to keep the doctrine of Jesus because keeping the doctrine of Jesus is one of the many things that save the spirit of man.

1 Timothy chapter 4 verse 16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

Now you should see how important it is that the Ekklesia you choose has only the true doctrine or the law of Christ so the members of your Ekklesia can know they are free from sin and can be saved. Only the Ekklesia who has open polemic debate has the true doctrine of Christ in their gatherings.

The true Ekklesia of Jesus always allows open and public (polemic or controlled) debate (discussions) in their public gatherings, to make certain that they hold the true doctrine of Christ. In the “Ekklesia” or “church” of your choice, how long has it been since your “Ekklesia” or “church” has allowed open polemic debate in your assembly with those who oppose your church doctrine?

Christ has a doctrine or law. Galatians 6:2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ?

Does the Ekklesia or ‘church’ of your choice allow open polemic debate on any teaching that divides the one Ekklesia or from other churches? Those who refuse to openly debate their doctrine in their public assemblies, have something dreadful to hide in their church doctrine. Get away from the false “church” with their false doctrine if they refuse to open their assemblies and stand up and “contend earnestly for the faith delivered only once” (Jude 2).

With a passion, the deceivers of the false “church,” hate the word doctrine or law. The idea of open and public controlled debate to determine the source of their doctrine in their assembly terrifies their position they hold over the people. Some deceive their church members by teaching falsely that God did not give a doctrine or law to His “church.” Those who do not have the true doctrine of Christ in their “church” hate the word doctrine or law and refuse to discuss or debate the matter in the public of their open assembly. Those who do not have open and polemic debate to keep the doctrine of Christ pure do not have Christ neither can they be identified as the true Ekklesia that Jesus the Christ builds.

Now you should know the difference between the Ekklesia of the Christ and the “Churches” that are made by men. Jesus built only one Ekklesia or one called out assembly and gave the Ekklesia only one doctrine to debate. The apostle Paul warns that keeping the doctrine of Jesus is one of the things that saves the Christian (1Timothy 4:16). It is your life responsibility to discover through either reading the word or through polemic debate, what is the true doctrine or law that determines what is the one true Ekklesia of Jesus. Study the teaching from those who oppose your “church” and reason the scriptures to learn the truth and the history of your “church.” Know for certain when your “church” doctrine was first started? How will you ever know for certain that your church and the doctrine you teach was started by Jesus and the teaching of the Holy Spirit given only through the apostles? Does your “church’ wear the name of the builder? The following is a history of some who make the claim to be the one true church but not one of them will open their assemblies to polemic debate their church doctrine. Only the Ekklesia or church that Jesus built will open their assembly to polemic debate. This should be the first warning that these false churches have something dreadful to hide in their church doctrine. Jesus did not start a “Church” but Jesus started His “Ekklesia” in the corrected year of A.D. 30. We learn there are many Bible congregations in every city but there is only one “Ekklesia” for every city.

History of the first Ekklesia established by Jesus

A. D. 30 Jerusalem Y’ahsus (Jesus) the Christ. There is only one Ekklesia of God or the Ekklesia that belongs to Christ and Jesus is the only head over the true Ekklesia. Romans chapter16: verse16 Salute one another with a holy kiss. The Ekklesias of Christ salute you (Note Ekklesias is plural).

Acts chapter 20: verse 28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the Ekklesia of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

We can use either the name, “The Ekklesia of “Y’ahsus” which is the true pronunciation of the name of the Christ, “The Ekklesia of God”, “The Ekklesia of “Christ.” There is a problem in giving a specific biblical name to the Ekklesia that Jesus built. To call the Ekklesia by the specific name of “The church of Jesus,” there are many men by the name of Jesus. In the Bible, there are more specific references made to “the Ekklesia of God.” To name the church “The Ekklesia of God,” then only acts of worship determine who is being identified as Ekklesia and -The God. The God is only understood as -a god to many different people.

History of the Time the Place the Founder The man made name of the Church

We give the names of the following churches that refuse to open their assemblies to debate the source of their church doctrine. The following churches are very different from the Ekklesia of Christ because each of the following churches teach and observe a very different doctrine comparing to the doctrine that was given to the world in the first century. Each of the following “churches’ teach a different doctrine comparing to the doctrine which was given to the Ekklesia only one time and the doctrine of Jesus is given only through the Holy Spirit as the word of God.

The doctrine of the Ekklesia of first century was given only through certain chosen Jews (Romans chapter 3, verse 1-3). Jesus taught salvation is of the Jews (see John 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. Keep this truth in mind, the doctrine of Jesus was given only through the Holy Spirit and the doctrine of the Ekklesia, was given only one time through the Jews of the first century (see Rom. 3:1-2).

The word of God was written only one time and only by the Bible writing Jews (See Jude

2). Any doctrine for the Ekklesia written after the first century is not from God or -not from Jesus, the Holy Spirit and not written by the Jews of the first century. Any doctrine (Law) written outside what was written in the first century Ekklesia is not of Christ and therefore it is not the doctrine for the Ekklesia that belongs to the “one head” which is Jesus the Christ. Note not one of the following “churches” will open their assemblies to polemic or controlled debate to determine the source of their “church” doctrine, and then it is obvious they know they do not have truth in the source of their church doctrine.

Time Place Founder Church Name

321-25 A.D Constantinople Constantine Nicea Roman Catholic digressed from doctrine and started to be formed but not yet named.

606 A. D. Rome Boniface III Roman Catholic

1520 A. D. Germany Martin Luther Lutheran

1534 A.A. England Henry VIII Church of England

1536 A.D. Switzerland John Calvin Presbyterian

1550 A.D. England Robert Browne Congregational

1607 A.D . Holland John Smyth Baptist

1739 A. D. England John Wesley Methodist

1830 A.D. America Joseph Smith Latter Day Saints (Mormon)

1830 A.D. America William Miller 7Th Day Adventist

1866 A.D. America Mary Baker Eddy Christian Scientist

1872 A.D . America Charles Taz Russell or the cult of the Russellites (Falsely call themselves Jehovah’s Witnesses). The cultic group of Charles Taz Russell or the Russellites rejects the title of “Ekklesia” of Jesus and opts for what they identify as their “Watch Tower Society”.

The Russellites would not so much as dare to open their assemblies to polemic debate. To hold open polemic debate in their kingdom Halls to determine the source of their doctrine in short order would be the end of the so call “Jehovah’s Witness Churches.” The “Watch Tower” of the Russellites who falsely call themselves Jehovah’s Witness” is not and can not be the true “Ekklesia “of Jesus.” The problem with the Watch Tower Society is the watchtower refuses to hold open polemic debate in their open assemblies of the Kingdom Halls to determine source of their doctrine. What a day of revelation and confusion when the teacher of truth stands in the open assembly of the Russellites and reveals all the false teaching of the Russellites. The Russellites will never dare open their assemblies to polemic debate to become a true “Ekklesia of the Christ.”

The Russellite “church” is an Apella and can not be identified as the true Ekklesia of Jesus because they do not allow open “Ekklesia” or polemic debate in their assemblies to determine the source of their teachings.

The Russellites who falsely identify themselves as “Jehovah’s Witness” were originally started by Charles Taz Russell who is recorded in history of the court of New York to be a liar, immoral sexual deviant and false prophet. The leaders who follow Russell can be proven through polemic debate to be false prophets and expounders (Polemic debates are never allowed in their public assembly). The doctrine of the Russellites is contrary to the doctrine of Jesus and they refuse to have Ekklesia or open and controlled debate with the opposition the teaching in their assemblies.

Now let us examine the modern Catholic “Apella.” There would never have been the so called “Catholic Church” started in the fourth century, if the Ekklesia of Jesus were allowed by the ruler Constantine to continue to hold polemic debate in the teaching of Jesus. Constantine and certain of the new “Church” officials stopped public debate in open assemble.

The modern or ancient Catholic “church” is not now nor ever was a true “Ekklesia or Church of Jesus” but instead they are a false “Apella” because they are cultic and do not allow polemic debate in their assemblies to purify and hold to the doctrine of Jesus in His kingdom. The Catholic “church” was started to be formed by Constantine (“The Great”). Many of the Catholic pagan doctrines were started by Constantine in 325 AD and the doctrine of the Catholics are completely opposite the doctrine of Jesus.

“Mormons “church” which is not a true and living Ekklesia (church) must be identified as the closed and secret Greek “Apella.” The Mormons are an “Apella” because they do not allow polemic debate to determine source and hold the true doctrine or law given by Jesus. The Mormons are founded and identify themselves as Latter-Day Saints (Mormon) movement, 1830. In a supposed vision of the Father and the Son reported by Joseph Smith (1820s) in N.Y., The book of Mormon and “Pearl of Great Price” and other false prophecies are contrary doctrine compared to scripture that the true source was to be written only once and only by the Jews, Rom. 3:1-2 and Jude 2. Joe Smith also reported receiving new scripture on golden tablets.

The original book of Mormon was easily proved in polemic debate that it was an invention made by Joseph Smith, and the book of Mormon is a fake and a fraud. Mormon Church tries to buy and destroy all the original book of Mormon because it is easy to show that it is a fake and fraud. The ‘Mormons” would not dare have true Ekklesia or open polemic debate in their assemblies for fear that the truth and the source of their heinous deceptions made by Joseph Smith and other Mormon leaders would be revealed.

In public debate, the book of Mormon is proven to be false. Mormon leaders have tried to destroy the first book of Mormon and made some five thousand revisions from the original book. Some revisions of the original intent of Joe Smith are completely reversed in the revised book of Mormon.

In the twentieth century, there is a flood of new man made “churches” that will name themselves by a multitude of different names. None of these so called “churches” are so much as a true and living “Ekklesia” outside the Ekklesia of Christ. Only the true “Ekklesia” of Christ will open their assemblies to polemic debate to prove they have the true source of doctrine from God. If all who claim to be the Ekklesia that belong to Jesus would open their assemblies to polemic debate, they would soon all become one doctrine and determine one law of the kingdom of God.

Here are only a few of the multitude of unscriptural names men give to their man made churches but all refuse open polemic debate in the in assemblies: Full Gospel Fellowship Church, and the Church of the Nazarene, Christian Center Church, Church On The Way, Church of The Lost, Church of The Believers, Christian Cathedral Church, Christian Church, The Assembly of God church, The Episcopal Church, New Life Faith Center Church, Rock of Salvation Church, Hope Chapel Church, Jews for Christ Church, Calvary Community church, Four Square Church—the list goes on and on.

The following deviants also have the right to call themselves “church” but they are open and hide nothing in their church doctrine. They make no claim to be the church Jesus built.

1) The church of Satan *San Francisco. Founded by Anton LaVey.

2) Gay and lesbian Church.

3) The church of the devil

Each of the above churches teaches something different that sets them apart and their teaching will contradict or oppose all other “churches.” All teach a different doctrine that will identify their different beliefs.

Learn though polemic debate, which is the true Ekklesia that teaches the true doctrine of Christ? Only through polemic debate in the assembly of the Ekklesia and through an in-depth study of the scriptures will identify the one true doctrine of the one true Ekklesia that belongs to the kingdom of Jesus Christ.

I say, be careful and always take the safe course and make the right choice, if you really want to be saved? It is impossible for us to be saved outside the kingdom determined only to be the Ekklesia that belongs to Christ. If your religious association will not open to public debate to determine the source of their doctrine for their assembly, and if your “church” has a different doctrine than the doctrine of the Ekklesia of Christ, then perhaps your champion will come to this web site and debate your differences so all on the web can read why you think you have the right to differ in your religious doctrine? If you teach a different doctrine, or if you have no doctrine, we give you a challenge, get your church champion to come and defend your different church doctrine at this web site. www.religiousdebates.com

Keep this fact if you do not have open debate with the opposition in you public assemblies, then you are not a true Ekklesia in the kingdom of Christ.

Now again notice very carefully the words of warning given to us by Jesus.

“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for such doth the Father seek to be his worshippers.

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4: 23-24).

Notice the words of Jesus “must worship in spirit and in truth.” The only acceptable worship to God must be made in spirit and in truth. Then how are we to determine if we have the correct spirit and the truth?

In the love of God the truth and the brotherhood
