Concerns
From EJ Hill & Friends

CONCERNS
by EJ Hill (1977-) Digg
"For THE TIME HAS COME THAT JUDGMENT MUST BEGIN AT THE HOUSE OF GOD:
submit
and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?" (1 Pt.
4v17, AKJV, p.539)

Amongst the many things that have us concerned for the Denominational Church Establishment:

Disobedience

The general misconception that we will be saved, regardless of our LONG-TERM, WILLFULL,
disobedience to God.

"Not every one that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that
doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven." (Mt. 7v21, AKJV, p.424)

"Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto
them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before
you." (Mt. 21v31, AKJV, p.432)

"If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: ..." (1
Jn. 1v6, AKJV, p.541)

"He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him."
(1 Jn. 2v4, AKJV, p.541)

The sad reality however is, that faith without works of obedience is no faith at all.

"{18} Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works,
and I will shew thee my faith by my works. {19} Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest
well: the devils also believe, and tremble. {20} But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without
works is dead? {21} Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his
son upon the altar? {22} Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made
perfect? {23} And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was
imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. {24} Ye see then how that
by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. {25} Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot
justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? {26}
For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also." (Js. 2v18-26, AKJV,
p.536)

Being obedient, means being Baptized (Mt. 28v19; 1 Pt. 3v21); and walking in Truth (Jn. 4v23-24,
8v32, v44, 16v13; Rom. 1v18, 2v8-9; 2 Cor. 4v2; Gal. 2v5 , v14, 3v1, 5v7; 1 Th. 2v13; 2 Th.
2v10-13; 2 Tim. 2v15, v25, 3v7-8; Tit. 1v14; Js. 5v19-20; 1 Jn. 2v21, v27, 4v6; 2 Jn. 1v4; 3 Jn.
1v3-4).

Iconography

The prevalence of iconographic idolatry sanctioned, practiced, and promoted by so
many churches and ministries in both print and video; while Scripture clearly rejects
making graven images of Christ's person.

Baptismal Regeneration

The doctrine of baptismal regeneration – by which the Church of England in England, The Golden Calf
thank God for regenerating every child sprinkled with a little water, effectively making
them "a member of Christ, a child of God, and an inheritor of the kingdom of heaven"
– the Word of God allowing for no other than the baptism of believers, and that by immersion.

Tithing

The unscriptural system of Tithing, while the New Testament authorizes no other payment to
ministers but free and voluntary offerings. Some even employing legal means to enforce their
payment.

Schools of the Bible

In light of Spiritual Enlightenment and Apostolic Tradition, there remains no Biblical President,
necessitating the establishment of Schools of the Bible - as needful to qualify those so called, for
ministry.

Regarding Preaching

The lack of expository preaching - since most either copy their sermons; or forge from their
imagination, a weekly lecture consisting of noble thoughts, good intentions, and stale morality; while
the New Testament Gospel Church fervently expounded the whole counsel of God (Acts 20v27).

Regarding Ignorance

A virtual famine of biblical understanding; while paramount one for the New Testament Gospel
Church was searching the Scriptures daily.

"These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all
readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so." (Acts 17v11,
AKJV, p.)

Regarding Formality

Being trapped in snares of ritualism, maintaining a twice dead, spiritless formality;
while the New Testament Gospel Church contended for the power

"For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power." (1 Cor. 4v20, AKJV, p.506)

"By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the
right hand and on the left, ..." (2 Cor. 6v7, AKJV, p.513)
A Roman
Catholic Service
Regarding Submission

Blind submission to majority opinion; while the New Testament Gospel Church knew of no other
authoritative, infallible, rule, or standard for Christian Living, than Scripture.

Regarding Ecumenism

The existence of an ever-growing ecumenical consensus among liberal religious bodies joining hands
in fellowship; while the New Testament Gospel Church considered any unity purchased at the
expense of doctrinal purity as both, satanic and deceptive (2 Cor. 6v14-18; Gal. 1v8; Ep. 5v11; 2
Tim. 3v1-17, 4v1-8).

Regarding Psychology

Its unhealthy preoccupation with secular psychology, not only contradicting Scripture, but often
undermining both ecclesiastical support (Gal. 6v1-2) and divine power (2 Pt. 1v3).
