Well, said. I too have left churchianity. My religion follows the Holy Bible and it's lessons on life.
I'm a sabbath keeper.
I'm a Holy Day keeper.
I refrain from the christianized pagan holidays of christmas and easter.
I am a modern decendent of the tribe of Joseph (Manasseh).
God is not a trinity, but a family made up of the Father, Son and soon to be the Saints and later the adopted children of God.
The Holy Spirit is God's POWER, not a member of a tri-une God.
The Holy Bible is the Inspired Word of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, and for instruction on how to live a holy life.... and those
are Paul's words, not mine.
I feel we are at the end of this evil age of man's rule on earth and Jesus will return in my lifetime in light of biblical prophecies being fulfilled
before our eyes.
Hell is a mistranslated word in the bible. Sheol (hebrew) and hades (greek) mean "death" or "grave". Tartarus (greek) means "imprisionment",
"confinement", or "abyss". Gehenna (greek) means "Valley of Hinnom".... a garbage pile south of Jerusalem that stayed on fire constantly.
Trash, animal corpses and dead criminals were thrown in this fire to be Consumed. In conclusion, hell fire or the "Lake of fire" is a place where
sinners are consumed and burn to DEATH, not for eternity. The Lake of Fire is called the "Second Death" in revelation.
Heaven is not man's destiny.... earth is. John 3:13 reads that no man has ever entered heaven, or ever will except for Jesus Christ.
When you die, you remain dead and resting until your appointed resurrection, either as a saint (upon Christ's return) or 1000 years later in the
There is no "spirit" separate from the fleshly body of man. To become a "spirit" you must be transfigured or transformed from flesh to spirit as
Jesus showed in the "Transfiguration Account" in the gospels.
The Ten Commandments, food laws, and harvest festivals are all still to be observed as a christian. Jesus, the apostles, and the Church up to the 3rd
century followed these laws and ordinances. Why not christians today?
I'll stop boreing you with the doctrine I adhere to. Just thought I'd show you the difference in my "christainity" vs. the typical
"churchianity" teachings. Peace.
