Search the Scriptures

March 31, 2010

There is a significant difference between facts and truth. Facts are time relative. Facts, like theories, may change. What is factual today may not be factual tomorrow. Truth however is eternal. Truth is unchanging. Truth is etched in stone, so to speak. What is truth today will be truth tomorrow. The theories of men, no matter how intellectual the man or the theory, are by definition, theoretical. Theories are subject to criticism, correction, and change. Truth is truth. It is unchanging, unalterable, and not subject to criticism or correction. Men may, out of their own ego or ulterior motives, attempt to revise or alter truth but their attempts are foolish and only shine light on their ego and fractured logic.

Two parts of hydrogen, mixed with one part of oxygen will give you water. Why? Because it is truth. It will give you water today. It will give you water tomorrow. It will still give you water a thousand years from now. There has been no attempt that I am aware of to revise or alter the multiplication table. Two times two equals four. It equals four today. It will equal four tomorrow, it will equal four in ten thousand years because it is truth. One plus one plus one equals three. It equals three today, it will equal three tomorrow, it will equal three in ten thousand years, that is of course except in the case of post-fourth century Christian (so-called) thinking.

The Christian (so-called) intelligencia, since the fall of the Church in the late first century, as recorded in II Timothy 4:4, those who ‘turned their ears from the truth and were turned unto fables’, have been attempting to revise the multiplication table, postulating that three times one do not really equal three, it actually equals one. They finally solidified their erroneous arithmetic in the mid-fourth century at the Council of Nicea, and promulgated and forced it upon the world at the point of the Roman sword. Can you imagine what would happen if these same individuals stood before the ‘academic’ world today and proclaimed that one plus one plus one did not really equal three, it actually equaled one. They would be laughed out of the room, but somehow or other when it comes to men’s religious beliefs, logic and science and truth can allowably be set aside, and replaced with metaphysicals and the gobbledy gook and verbiage of theological speculation.

The Christian (so-called) intelligencia for centuries have been developing (making-up) and promulgating all kinds of terms, and vocabulary, and theories to justify their continued acceptance of, adherence to, and promulgation of paganistic doctrine – terms such as “incarnation,” “deification,” and (my favorite) “hypostatic union,” which means that somehow Jesus was fully man and fully God….huh? They’re way too smart for me. They actually have been making-up words to justify and prove their error. It has always fascinated me how seemingly intelligent men can set aside all logic and science and clear biblical evidence to justify their religious beliefs and metaphysical postulations.

As hard as I’ve tried. As thoroughly and as intensely as I (and many others) have read through the Bible. As many of the biblical reference materials (concordances, lexicons, biblical dictionaries, NOT theological commentary), as I have scoured through, I have never been able to find the terms “incarnation,” “deification,” ‘trinity,” or “hypostatic union” in any of these reference sources, never mind that none of these terms are found in the scriptures themselves. Yet, the truth of the matter is that Jesus Christ himself said, as recorded in John 5:39, to “search the scriptures,” and that the scriptures are “they which testify of me.” It is the scriptures that testify of him. Yet the ‘brains’ of Christendom can’t show any of the terms that they use (and made-up) to justify their erroneous, illogical fallacies (they’re not even ‘logical’ fallacies) in the scriptures, only in their own writings and theories, or in those of fellow ‘intelligent ones.’

Jesus Christ said that the scriptures testify of him. After his resurrection from the dead (according to scripture he was fully man and FULLY DEAD) while walking with two men on the road to Emmaus he began with the books of “Moses and all the prophets,” and “expounded unto them in all the scriptures, the things concerning himself.” Where then are the terms “incarnation,” “deification,” “trinity,” and “hypostatic union” in the books of Moses, and all the prophets? And why, given such ample opportunity, did not Jesus Christ himself set forth these ideas and expound them from the scripture. Better question yet, why did not God Himself include these ideas and theories and terms in the scriptures? I guess He needed help from the intelligencia to explain to us simpletons who His “Son” REALLY was. I suppose God’s declaration of who His Son was in His Word isn’t good enough. God needed help from theologians to explain what He really meant to say. How arrogant!

Jesus Christ said that the scriptures testify of him. PERIOD! That ought to be good enough, but evidently is not. It seems that the scriptures, and the truth of God they contain, have been so long illogically and/or deceitfully mishandled by those in the pulpit that the masses have no choice but to TRUST their spiritual leaders and advisors (because, after all, it is all just so difficult to understand). People haven’t been taught how to follow their lord and savior’s instruction to “search the scriptures” for themselves. The masses have given up on the quest for spiritual truth and are content to eat the regurgitated food of antiquated and erroneous theology.

Now, I’m not a scholar, but I’m pretty sure that the deification of a man, or any other created thing is idolatry according to scripture (Romans 1:18-25). To those who believe and promulgate the deification of the man Christ Jesus (I Timothy 2:5), and the new, revised, modern math that one plus one plus one equals one, please expound on the following, trying to use only scripture to try and prove that God and His Son are actually one and the same (this ought to be good) –

I Corinthians 15:28
“And when all things shall be subdued unto him (God), then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him (God) that put all things under him (Christ), that God may be all in all.”

How is the Son also himself going to be subject unto God if they are one and the same?

I Corinthians 11:3
“But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.”

How can God be “the head of Christ” if they are one and the same?

I Timothy 2:5
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”

How can Christ be the mediator between the “one” God and men, if they are one and the same?

Luke 23:46
“And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.”

Who was he talking to when he said “Father,” and to whom did he commend his spirit to if they are one and the same?

Hebrews 9:14
“How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”

How can Jesus Christ offer himself without spot to God if they are supposedly one and the same?

John 20:17
“Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.”

Jesus Christ stated that Mary’s God was also his God. How can they possibly then be one and the same?

These are just a handful of the hundreds of scriptures (which Jesus Christ himself said testify of him) that clearly show the FULL distinction of identity between God and His wonderful Son. The theoretical religious postulations of the Christian (so-called) intelligencia make a mockery of the beautiful simplicity of God’s Word and the identity of His wonderful Son. You can call all the post-fourth century doctrines and theories of men “Christian” all you want, But as I learned from a mentor many years ago, you can a label a jar “applesauce” on the outside but it doesn’t change the “sauerkraut” on the inside!
