Do Believers know 'Why' they Believe what they Believe?
The Truth Test!
We beg of you first-of-all to please not be offended. Our hearts are for you & your ministry and all who claim and proclaim the Name of Jesus Christ: be it teaching Children, teaching Seminary or Pastoring a congregation. As near as we know out own hearts, we would die for Christian ministry gain in this nation - God be our judge. We pleadingly & prayerfully ask YOU to take the Simple 'TRUTH TEST' below, and see it may help you see America more clearly. Thesis: Christianity is Dying in the Modern World 'because' Modern Christianity has 'lost-its-focus' - inadvertently over centuries becoming more "About Tradition, Generally"; rather than "Christ's Great Commission, Specifically!"
Evidence indicates Modern Church in the USA 'resists-&-rebels stridently' against the very 'Principles of Christ' needed to correct our demise-&-decay. Jesus plainly said: "If the Blind lead the Blind, both fall into the ditch!"
The massive amount of evidence - some given below - indicates Church USA is indisputably in the 'ditch' with every major denomination stagnant or dying in most of the following ways:
> > decreased number of new converts
> > decreased number of baptisms by full immersion
> > decreased tithers among the attenders/members
> > decreased young couples - families
> > decreased retention of youth raised in local Church
> > decreased 'actual prayer meetings'
> > decreased 'going into highways & hedges to win the lost'
> > decreased young men answering call to full-time ministry
> > decreased attendance in Seminaries
> > decreased planting of new Churches by denominations
> > decreased influence in every phase of government & public life!
> > decreased believe that 'Jesus is the only name of salvation!
> > an "increase" of church closings'
> > increase of legal encroachments against Christianity
> > increase of religious pluralism among Christian adherents
> > increase of sin and non-scriptural sexuality in the Church and nation
> > increased acceptance of homosexuality & their rights in Church & nation
> > Many other indices could be given, but these should suffice.
Consider the contrast of Christ's Words
[I] Jesus plainly said:
Follow me and I shall make you to become 'fishers of men. From hence forth thou shalt catch men." "
[II] Jesus also said:
"SAY NOT that the harvest is not yet, for I say unto you that the 'fields are white unto harvest' . . ."
[III] Scripture further says:
"For He (Jesus) looked upon the multitudes with compassion, as sheep having no shepherd!"
[IV] Jesus then commanded:
"Pray ye therefore (NOT for the unsaved multitudes but rather )... that the Lord of the Harvest will send-forth laborers into the harvest. (thus the problem is with us-Shepherds - not the multitudes needing shepherded!)
[V] Jesus finally promised:
"EVERY branch in Me bringeth forth fruit . . . and He that continues in My Word, the same bringeth forth MUCH FRUIT!"
Jesus also promised in the same teaching that “Greater works than these shall ye do!”
CONTRAST these five-Scriptures with the following:
Jesus: "If the Blind lead the Blind, both fall into the ditch!" This seems to be where the USA - Church, government & culture are bound!
Evidence indicates we-the-Church are failing our nation & our world in almost every area - because . . . . we are mostly 'the Blind following Blind-Leaders - keeping tradition in preference to Truth!'
Please know that ALL of us - including you and me - were handed 'STRONG Christian Tradition on a Silver Platter'.
Our 'life-time of failing' - not in direct-ministry, but in collectively failing our beloved Saviour and Nation - with research & ministry in over 50 nations, in over 1,000 of the largest ministries in the world - has opened our eyes to plain scriptures "rebuking" American Christianity! Scriptures that were right there all the time!
Sadly, most American Christian leaders read them without grasping them, because of deeply held preconceived American Christian ideas, established in our brains & hearts years before we ever became Ministers & Bible Scholars.]
Please learn from the mistakes of "our generation" and recognize ’Truth’ sooner that we did!
We beg of you one more time to please not be offended, but pleadingly & prayerfully challenge YOU to take the Simple 'TRUTH TEST' below.
Truth Test - Question One on "UNITY!"
TRUTH-TEST-QUESTION-1 (Is this YOUR Greatest Sin?)
Evidence allows no other conclusion than 99% of all who profess Christ are either 'woefully ignorant' or 'willfully rebellious' against plain, direct Scriptures'.
For EXAMPLE: Most of us have known all of our aware lives there is 'ONE Lord, ONE faith, ONE family, ONE Gospel & ONE Church'! Most of us Further KNOW Scripture COMMANDS us to CHRISTIAN UNITY to the great degree as follows:
[I] Jesus plainly said: "A house divided (within itself) CANNOT stand, but falls. Every kingdom DIVIDED against itself is brought to desolation; and a house DIVIDED against a house falleth.
[Jesus declared this repeatedly with several applications in Mat 12, Mrk 9 & Luk 11]
[II] Paul plainly said: 1 Cor 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye ALL speak the same thing, and that there be NO divisions among you;
but that ye be perfectly joined together in the SAME mind and in the SAME judgment.
1 Cor 1:11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, . . . that there are contentions among you.
1 Cor 1:12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
1 Cor 1:13 Is Christ divided? No! Let's break it down:
Now I BESEECH you,
brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
> >  Let ALL
> >  speak the SAME THING
> >  there be NO DIVISION AMONG YOU!
> >  but that ye be PERFECTLY
> >  JOINED TOGETHER
> >  Let ALL be of the SAME MIND
> >  and in the SAME JUDGMENT!
> >  and that there be NO CONTENTIONS AMONG YOU!
> >  Let NO ONE SAY:
'I am a Roman Catholic!' 'I am a Protestant!' 'I am a Lutheran!' 'I am a King James Only Christian!'(NOTE! Paul used CURRENT names & divisions OF THEIR TIMES - not Moses, Aaron, or David, so the Scripture as given above is the CORRECT TRUTH COMMUNICATED!)'
> >  as Christ is NOT DIVIDED! Most Christians know these commands forbid division into competing, conflicting, condemning, confusing, denominations
though they may be surprised - IF THEY STUDY THEM - to what nearly-impossible degree
God commands and expects us to become one in unity!
We categorize this 'TRUTH-TEST question as REBELLION'
BECAUSE almost everyone knows these commands, but with 500 Denominations in the USA - and Churches proudly displaying their DIVISIONAL NAMES ALL OVER TOWN ...
...there is not even a PRETENSE made to being 'Perfectly joined together in the same mind & same judgment speaking the same thing!'
IMPORTANT QUESTION: Do you know ANYONE - or local CHURCH - who seriously attempts to live this?
Or, rather, do most believers you know live in OPEN REBELLION, BLINDLY FOLLOWING THE TRADITIONS handed down in the MODERN ERA of Divide-&-Denominationalize AS WE Decrease-Diminish-Demise-Decay-&-Die?
Sadly, this is Blatant Rebellion As Jesus PLAINLY said: "The house DIVIDED CANNOT Stand . . but it FALLS, and becomes DESOLATE!" Mat 12, Mrk 9 & Luk 11
How can we expect God to honor ANY PRAYERS for this land when we live not only in IGNORANCE of HIS SCRIPTURES but in OPEN REBELLION of His Commands!
Perhaps the only thing WORSE than this flagrant, blatant deliberate sin is that for the most part, "We KNOW we are rebelling in DISUNITY, but we JUST DON'T CARE!
Thus we aren't even TRYING to do any better!"
This BLINDLY FOLLOWING TRADITION & REFUSAL to face the TRUTH is one factor that is wrong with the Modern Church: such rebellion, God CANNOT & WILL NOT bless!
Truth Test - Question Two on "Scriptural Pride & Ignorance!"
Great evidence indicates that "we Protestants follow tradition without QUESTIONING" - often in pride - not thinking there is anything we can learn from other sects and/or branches of Christianity!
One Simple Example:
Most of us Protestant Christians DO NOT KNOW the Bible Books "we call the Apocrypha"
- which are in the Catholic & all Orthodox Bibles . . .
. . . were also in the BIBLE JESUS & His DISCIPLES USED,
the Apostle PAUL & all other Apostles, the First Century Leaders, the CHURCH all through the AGES, including Martin Luther & the Reformers, ALL English Bibles for 500 years;
- including those used by the Puritans-&-Pilgrims, and was in the King James Version for centuries - even with notes and references when Christ Himself referred to these writings in His teachings !
Most of us Protestants preachers/teachers at some time have TAUGHT that these books are in great error, that they are not 'inspired', that there is no direct message from God, that they contain non-Scriptural practices, that they should have NEVER been part of the "True Bible" to begin with -
(either implying, or saying directly, that it was evil Roman Catholic heretics who included these writings with Scripture to reinforce their own preferred doctrines!)
Thus most of us were quite smug in teaching this view, quite certain of our being absolutely correct, taking great spiritual pride that we KNEW BETTER - than those 'dark-ages Catholics who 'blindly follow tradition'!
That Protestants in know more about Scripture than Catholics is not what we are questioning:
Our question is: do we REALLY think we are SMARTER ABOUT SCRIPTURE than JESUS?"
We really don't intend to consider your answer to that question with an open mind - in fact- we'll answer it very strongly for you: Neither you nor us - nor anyone else will EVER know anything in which we "correct Jesus on the Scriptures!"
The very idea is blasphemy, beyond which we have any words to express out disgust!
Yet most of us stubborn-&-independent-minded-Protestants BLINDLY FOLLOW TRADITION in grossest arrogant pride, OBLIVIOUS to the FACT that WE ARE rejecting Scriptures JESUS USED!
We are so busy drowning in tradition that we do not have the faintest idea . . . . . that a MAJOR TRUTH our modern-scientific-age desperately needs found in the Bible Jesus used: with the so-called Apocrypha!
To learn just a couple of these urgent truths, please see
The EXTREME Importance of the Apocrypha
So, our Beloved Brothers and Sisters!
Do you use the Bible Jesus used, as did His Disciples, the Apostle Paul & ALL New Testament writers?
Do you advocate and promote it,
teach WHY Jesus used it, WHY it is superior to all others . . .
Or . . . are YOU FOLLOWING MODERN AMERICAN TRADITION,
condemning the Bibles of the Orthodox Churches, of Roman Catholicism, of Christ & His Disciples & of His Apostles, of all New Testament Writers, and the collective Church for over 1800 years?
With greatest probability, you have been 'blinded by tradition simply HANDED TO YOU, completely unaware, just as we were for DECADES.
In fact, we did not even seriously QUESTION this issue UNTIL fellow professors - unbelievers - "sharply targeted" one of us with pointed questions about Bible-version-confusion, and how it was disrupting the world!
The only way one can EVER KNOW if one is SPIRITUALLY ASLEEP - is to WAKE UP! (that IS why God led you here - TO WAKE YOU UP! [as we do no advertising hoping more visitors will come to us.]
We pray for GOD to lead "Sincere-Searchers" here . . .
WELCOME! (smile :)
TRUTH-TEST Question-3 on "Bible Version Ignorance"
We as the Modern Church USA do not know that we Evangelical-&-Fundamental-&-Mainstream-Protestants are drowning in ignorance!
We just don't know it!
We modern Christian Protestants are ignorant mostly from ’blindly following tradition. Since we follow blindly, and accept all that was handed to us without question, we see no need to question, or research anything!
Thus we modern Christian Protestants do not research the facts and "PROVE ALL THINGS" as the New Testament COMMANDS US TO DO! Instead, we just blindly accept the American Christian tradition handed to us.
Paul commands us in I Thes 5:21 "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good."
However, we in the Modern Era Church prove nothing, and blindly hold fast to Man-Made-Tradition handed down to us
, proving only what Jesus said about 'OUR KIND': "Ye fools & blind!" Mat 23
All the while the secular 'World-of-Academia' laughs & scoffs at our claims of "Christian Scholarship" - which finds it ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE to face truth
- choosing rather to WILLFULLY DISTORT the facts, to try to MAKE IT BE what we've always ASSUMED . . .
. . . rather than admit to each other, our followers & the world that we were wrong: thus shamefully displaying WILLFULLY DISTORTED IGNORANCE!
Please read the following CAREFULLY! We don't wish to offend you, as most of us at NASA have had (or still have) parents - and family
- among the following KJV Bible Cult: some of the "Best-Hearted-Christians" we know are part of the "KING JAMES ONLY BIBLE CULT" movement
While many Conservative Bible Christians put King James & His Bible upon a pedestal, makes it a badge-of-honor, uses it as a litmus-test, the world mocks our ignorance to the highest.
The world - they tried to inform us - but we Protestants proudly and defiantly refuse any TRUTHS that transgress our TRADITION!
KING JAMES THE VULGAR TONGUE
There is a mountain of evidence for the whole of King James life, that he was a VILE man with a VULGAR tongue. Thus he COMMANDED HIS BIBLE be printed in the VULGAR language of the street (Printed right on the cover-page in all early editions - removed by printers in the last 100 years to FOOL US STUPID PROTESTANTS - knowing it would offend many true Christians.
That's why the KJV has VULGAR STREET language in it that most ministers will NOT EVEN READ in public 400 years later - and YOU in greatest probability - do not use such language yourself.
KING JAMES THE HOMOSEXUAL
Furthermore, Kings James was a homosexual from his earliest teens, had many sexual partners over the decades (one was called one "wife" - who called him "husband" in return), exchanged vile love-letters, had young men assigned to his bed-chamber, openly French-kissed many young men in public to the point many people rebelled against him on grounds of public decency;
"QUEEN" JAMES THE HOMOSEXUAL
Multitudes mocked and yelled "QUEEN JAMES!" when he rode through the streets in his chariot!
Factually and sadly, King James spent much money on his mausoleum and was buried between two homosexuals: one he claimed the 'love of his life', and the other who was with him at the end of life.'
KING JAMES THE COLD-BLOODED MURDERER
Furthermore, King James was a cold-blooded murderer in the greatest degree - killing good men, even embalming the head of one who dared disagree with him - and sent it packaged to his grieving widow & children!
KING JAMES PERSECUTOR OF THE PURITANS
King James imprisoned and/or killed some leaders who spoke against him; persecuting Bible Christians - the Puritan-Pilgrims specifically - taking their properties & homes leaving them destitute, taking jobs them from & stripping their licenses to perform certain trades.
King James imprisoned men, women & children, for holding bible studies & using a Bible besides his PERVERTED VERSION [the Pilgrims HATED his "PRO-HOMOSEXUAL VERSION-KJV", did not accept, did not bring it to America. The Pilgrims were fleeing King James!!!]
KING JAMES "HIS" CHURCH, "HIS" BIBLE
King James was the last great persecutor in the "Foxes Book of Martyrs"
era. Had that writer lived and added another chapter, it would have been "The King James Chapter". His forcing of people to go to his STATE CHURCH of England, the Anglican Church.
Anglicans were a purposeful blending of Catholicism & Protestantism to bring peace between the two fighting-factions [which it STILL advertises today!]
KING JAMES DEFICIT SPENDER
King James also ran the nation of England deeply in debt, borrowing and spending to support his many homosexual lovers, finance silly wars, expeditions to America to strip the natives of gold, the building of buildings for his-name-sake.
KING JAMES: BURIED BETWEEN HIS TWO MALE LOVERS
Among the lavish buildings King James paid for by Christian-tax-dollars was his mausoleum, with debt that would make an American Congressman blush! His last Will-&-Testament had him laid to rest between his two favorite male lovers, each with arm's length!
You can look this up in any encyclopedia, or easily find pictures on the web - or visit in person.
This researcher has been there and gagged his way through the historic monument to the debauchery of King James: one of the most disgusting, perverted, reprobates who ever lived!
Yet even these weren't his worst sins!
KING JAMES ACCUSES JESUS & DISCIPLE JOHN OF HOMOSEXUALITY!
In our opinion, one of King James' sins that trumps many is as follows: When he as confronted in court about his open homosexuality with young men:
King James ACCUSED JESUS of being a homosexual, having the disciple John as His young lover and boldly said to the world: 'If it was fine for Jesus to have his John, then he King James would have his homosexual boys.'
KING JAMES WISHED TO BE CONSIDERED 'A GOD'!
King James also referred to himself as a 'god', with the right to kill anyone he wanted, or do anything he wanted and that to even question him" was a criminal act: he felt so passionately about this kingly power that he wrote a full-book on the subject!
KING JAME'S MOST SERIOUS & FAR REACHING
Yet there is more! King James worst and most far-reaching SIN is not even mentioned here, but can be found in the King James Files on the NavBar.
THE POINT IS AS FOLLOWS
We modern believers want the world to trust our scientists and historians [most of whom blatantly lie to make King James seem wonderful - because that's what King James Bible people want to hear, and "will pay good money" for "lying books" that tell them what they want to read! ]
The world of Academia knows we are SO IGNORANT - and so willing to STAY IGNORANT - that we are SO LAZY, that the average Christian or minister wont even look in a few simple encyclopedias for proof of hearsay - to obey the New Testament command to "Prove all things!" I Thes 5.21!
KING JAME'S PERVERTED BIBLE: KVJ
Thus we "Bible Christians" preach AGAINST homosexuality while exalting the rabid homosexual King James as a "SAINT"
We take 'his perversion of the bible' in which 13 major references to homosexuality are removed from the New Testament and exalt it to the greatest Bible of all times - even better than the one Jesus used!
Some Fundamentalists proclaim loud and long that his "Perverted, PRO-Homosexual KJV be elevated to "Inspired-of-God-Status" - even superior to original documents!
Such ignorance, cannot be exceeded!
P.S. DID YOU KNOW King James was NOT a good guy?
So how did YOU DO on the TRUTH-TEST?
This "Blind following of Tradition" - just because our parents, grandparents, denomination, and "beloved-leaders of yester-year" did so, and said to do so, is one great reason for what is wrong with the Modern Church, a reason that God CANNOT & WILL NOT bless!
Jesus clearly said: "You have made the Word of God of none effect by your tradition!"
Believe it or not - there are "300 more issues just as blatant as these three":
> > The wiser believers embrace about 100-such errors,
> > The average believers embrace about 200 such errors,
> > The lukewarm believers embrace about 300 errors!
That's the 'Sad-&-Bad' news.
The GOOD NEWS is that "God's people DO NO have to be destroyed for IGNORANCE, (Hoses 4.6) and God's people DO NOT have to DESTROY the Word of God with their TRADITION as Jesus THUNDERED AGAINST such tradition in Matt 15.1-15
It has taken scholars at NASA a life-time of becoming awakened, undeceived by tradition, and regaining sight to our BLINDED EYES! All that we have collectively learned from life-times of ministry in many nations will eventually be found on this website for a century to come!
Please pray for us and remember - We don't advertise! We are looking for the masses - just those God sends us WHO ARE READY to begin the "nest reformation: Back to First Century Jesus & His Apostles' kind of Christianity!
