I'm a firm believer in; Ephesians 4:5&6; one Lord(Jesus Christ), one faith(Acts 15:14;Isa 43:10; Jehovah's Witnesses) one baptism(1 Peter 3:21) one God(Jehovah; Psalms 83:18;Ex6:2,3;3:15; Isa 42:8) & Father of all [persons],who is over all & through all & in all! Heb 11:1- Lack of this is the sin that easily intangles. I am one of Jehovah's Witnesses, I'm no part of of this world, I've never killed anyone in war or had anything to do with the wild beast that has 7 heads & ten horns that is the Bible's symbol of world government, I'm no part of the mother of Harlots, Babylon the Great, the Empire of false Religion that has it's roots in paganism & pagan gods & goddesses that are in the worlds holidays, like Easter-the Queen of the Heavens, goddess of fertility, & Tau, the Sun God-symbol the cross & festival was on the 25th of Dec.

  • Christians acknowledge that all authority has been given to Jesus, at Matt 28:18 Jesus states this fact! Why do they ignore 1 Co 15:24-28?

    (Matt 28:18) (AS) 18. And Jesus came to them and spake unto them, saying, All authority hath been given unto me in heaven and on earth,

    1 Corinthians 15:24 Then cometh the end, when he shall deliver up the kingdom to God, even the Father, when he shall have abolished all rule and all authority and power.

    25 For he must reign, till he hath put all his enemies under his feet,

    26 The last enemy that shall be abolished is death. (Rev 20:14)

    27 For, He put all things in subjection under his feet. But when he saith, All things are put in subjection, it is evident that he is excepted who did subject all things unto him.

    28 And when all things have been subjected unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subjected to him that did subject all things unto him, that God may be all in all.

    It would seem to reason to me that anyone who can read especially verse 28 that Jesus subjects himself to his Father! This is why Jesus said this

    (John 14:28) Ye heard how I said to you, I go away, and I come unto you. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go unto the Father: for the Father is greater than I.

  • Why is the sign of the cross on the death mask of King Tut? The cross was the symbol of the pagan Egyptian sun god!?

    He died some 1000 years before Christ and was an Egyptian, the book Egyptian Religion, Siegfried Morenz notes: “The trinity was a major preoccupation of Egyptian theologians. Three gods are combined and treated as a single being, addressed in the singular. In this way the spiritual force of Egyptian religion shows a direct link with Christian theology.” We know that the Egyptian reincarnation belief is a pagan belief!

    Thus, in Alexandria, Egypt, churchmen of the late third and early fourth centuries, such as Athanasius, reflected this influence as they formulated ideas that led to the Trinity. Their own influence spread, so that Morenz considers “Alexandrian theology as the intermediary between the Egyptian religious heritage and Christianity.

    Notice that men “Not God’s word formulated the idea that let to the trinity;” “Egypt, churchmen of the late third and early fourth centuries, such as Athanasius, reflected this influence as they formulated ideas that led to the Trinity”.

    Jesus himself said at John 12:50) “And I know that his commandment means everlasting life. So whatever I speak, I speak just as the Father has told me.”

    Historian Will Durant observed: “Christianity did not destroy paganism; it adopted it. From Egypt came the ideas of a divine trinity.” In the preface to Edward Gibbon’s History of Christianity, we read: “If Paganism was conquered by Christianity, it is equally true that Christianity was corrupted by Paganism.

  • At John 4:23 we are told that “true” worshippers will worship the “Father” in spirit and truth. What Christian faith worships the “Father”?

    When a person seeks truth they can not get their own beliefs ahead of what the Bible says! Yet we find almost every Christian religion worshipping the trinity, the trinity did not originate in Jesus’ teaching, compare these scriptures!

    (John 4:23 AS) 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.

    At 1 Corinthians 11:3 we are told: But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man; and the head of Christ is God!

    And what does John 14:28 say (AS) 28 Ye heard how I said to you, I go away, and I come unto you. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go unto the Father: for the Father is greater than!

    Don’t you think that this is why Jesus said at Matt 6:9 that we are to make Hallowed his Father’s name? (9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father who art un heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

    Historians, who have researched history will tell you this: Historian Will Durant observed: “Christianity did not destroy paganism; it adopted it. From Egypt came the ideas of a divine trinity.” In the preface to Edward Gibbon’s History of Christianity, we read: “If Paganism was conquered by Christianity, it is equally true that Christianity was corrupted by Paganism.

    So why does Christian religions today only worship Jesus as their God? When both the Bible and findings of historians show it to be of pagan origin!

  • What does John 17:3 tell us when considering this part of the prayer Jesus was making to his heavenly Father: 3 This means everlasting life,?

    their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ

    Verse (3) in most Bibles: And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou has sent.

    How are the churches of today coming to know, the only true God, as Jesus said? The latter part of verse 3 Jesus says, and the one whom you sent, referring to himself!

    Today every church, save one, only follow part b of John 17:3. Don’t you find this strange especially when you read Matthew 6:9 where in the Lord’s prayer where Jesus says to sanctify, make Holy, God’s name?

    So what gives?

  • I’m quoting two scriptures, would anyone who has scriptural knowledge please explain there meaning?

    1st (Matthew 28:18) Jesus approached and spoke to them, saying: “All authority has been given me in heaven and on the earth.

    1 Q Who is this scripture say is speaking and what is he given?

    2nd (1 Co 15:24-28) Next, the end, when he hands over the Kingdom to his God and Father, when he has brought to nothing all government and all authority and power. 25 For he must rule as king until God has put all enemies under his feet. 26 And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing. 27 For God “subjected all things under his feet.” But when he says that ‘all things have been subjected,’ it is evident that this does not include the One who subjected all things to him. 28 But when all things will have been subjected to him, then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him, that God may be all things to everyone.

  • At Matt 28:18 we read “ (AS) And Jesus came to them and spake unto them, saying, All authority hath been given unto me?

    For those that don’t speak spake, lieth, thy, tho and themth (New World Translation) Jesus approached and spoke to them, saying: “All authority has been given me in heaven and on the earth.

    We know this is Jesus speaking and we know this is after he has risen from the grave, so just who is it that has given Jesus this authority?

  • Father, glorify thy name. There came therefore a voice out of heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.?

    That is written at John 12:28, at Matt 6:9 Jesus says: After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

    Both of these scriptures tells us that Jesus was concerned about his Father’s name, why do the Christian churches today make Jesus God and ignore what Jesus himself considered the most important thing for his followers to do? Perhaps 2 Timothy 4:2-4 is the answer!

    (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; 4 and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside unto fables.)

  • Please explain what is be said in these following scriptures, I’ve given the Greek words and there meaning.?

    1st scripture (Matt 6:9) 9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. (Hallowed= hä-gē-ä'-zō ) its meaning: to render or acknowledge, or to be venerable or hallow; Jesus is talking about his heavenly Father, just how is the Christian faiths acknowledging Jesus’ Father’s name??

    2nd scripture (Matt 11:25) At that season Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou didst hide these things from the wise and understanding, and didst reveal them unto babes:

    (Father, Lord of heaven and earth; Father (pä-tā'r)) its meaning: generator or male ancestor; Jesus himself is acknowledges he has a Father and his Father is the “Lord”of heaven and earth! Just how is the Christian faiths acknowledging that Jesus’ Father is the Lord of heaven and earth?

    3rd scripture (Matt 11:27) All things have been delivered unto me of my Father: and no one knoweth the Son, save the Father; neither doth any know the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son willeth to reveal him. Jesus tell us that all things have been delivered unto him by his Father (delivered unto me(Jesus) of my Father= (pä-rä-dē'-dō-mē) Its meaning; to give into the hands (of another) Just how is the Christian faiths of today teaching that what Jesus taught came from his Father?
