Three doctrines from hell:

Friend, well I've received this next article "THREE DOCTRINES from HELL" by
Andrew Strom, and I would like to share it with you.

You know, God works along a specific pattern? When you do not obey Him,
He gives you over to be deceived. That is what happened in the church as
we know it today. The institutionalized church moved so far away from the
True Gospel of Jesus Christ, therefore God permitted awful doctrines to
enter. Listen to Pauls words in Timothy 4:3-4

“For a time is coming [it is NOW] when people will no longer listen to right
teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who
will tell them whatever they want to hear. They will reject the truth and
follow strange myths.”
Can I confess something? I've believed ALL three of the above 'doctrines
from hell'!!!!! Yes this is scary stuff! I truly believed each one of them at
some stage in my life as a Christian! Even AFTER we've started with this
website I still believed them to be the TRUTH! I even did courses of how to
apply the ABC Gospel. How to help people accept Jesus by just accepting
Him into their hearts, by just praying a certain prayer! Only after I've
started LOOKING, KNOCKING and SEARCHING for the TRUTH did Jesus open
my eyes! All that I can say is:

“God please forgive me for having a part in distributing these awful lies!
Have mercy on ME!! Please remove every lie of the enemy that is still
keeping me in spiritual bondage! Lord set me FREE please! Do whatever You
need to do in order to deliver me from all the deceit and deception of the
enemy!!! I choose YOU and only You as the TRUTH and the Way and the
Life!”

Friend may God in His mercy set you free as well! May He open your eyes so
that YOU can see Him more clearly; so that YOU can have a deeper
understanding of Him as the ONLY TRUTH! May He deliver you from every
lie, and every deceit and deception of the enemy! May He heal and deliver
you from all religion, all tradition and all preconceived ideas; all man made
ideas, and all selfish ambitions! I ask this in the mighty, powerful name of
Jesus Christ! Amen

"THREE DOCTRINES from HELL" -Andrew Strom.

Let us begin with an important question - "What are the worst and most
damaging doctrines in the Western church today?"

I believe that the most damaging ones are the ones that actually steal
people's Salvation and afterwards wrap them in a false cocoon of comfort
and assurance. -Three major doctrines do this. There is nothing worse than
giving false comfort to people who are in danger. It is the worst crime
imaginable - and yet preachers do it every week across the Western world.
Imagine if a building was on fire, but instead of crying out and warning the
people, you went and comforted them and assured them they were OK -
even while the smoke curled up from beneath. Wouldn't it be your fault if
those people believed you and were killed? Such is the situation today, and
God will hold to account those who lull the sheep falsely with soothing lies. I
tell you - this is a matter of life and death. And God's judgment is coming
against all who prove to be such hirelings - "tickling the ears".

The 3 DOCTRINES from HELL:

(1) "ASK JESUS into your HEART".

We have spoken about this before, so I won't spend too long on it here. The
fact of the matter is that NOBODY in the Bible ever "asked Jesus in" or 'gave
their heart to the Lord' to become a Christian. There is NOT ONE instance of
this ever happening. There are no people in the Book of Acts repeating a
"Sinner's prayer" to get saved. -Nothing like it. This doctrine simply DOES
NOT EXIST in the Bible.

So what did people do in Acts? Well, every time they wanted to become a
Christian, they deeply REPENTED, they were BAPTIZED IN WATER, and also
BAPTIZED in the HOLY SPIRIT. These three things were always done straight
away - and were regarded as ESSENTIAL - not just "optional extras".
We are short-changing the entire church today with a doctrine that simply
CANNOT BE FOUND in Scripture. Merely "ASKING JESUS IN" is totally un-
scriptural. It is time to go back to getting people saved the BIBLE WAY. (-
See Acts 2:38, Acts 8:12-17, Acts 10:44-48, Acts 19:1-6, Acts 22:16, etc.
See also my in-depth article at- http://www.revivalschool.com ).

Please notice that what the church is doing here is replacing Truth with
something CONVENIENT, COMFORTABLE and EASY. "Just come forward and
say this little prayer," we tell them. No mention of DEEP REPENTANCE at all.
-And a total lack of any real TRANSFORMATION into a "NEW CREATURE".
This is no salvation at all. We are robbing people blind in the name of
comfort and convenience. How typical of the West. We have invented a
lukewarm "salvation experience" to go with our lukewarm church.

(2) "ONCE SAVED - ALWAYS SAVED".

Now, having got people falsely "saved", we create another ear-tickling


wonder to make sure that they sleep on contentedly in the pews. While
emphasising 'tithing' and attending church (-in that order) the main thing
now is to keep them warm and happy - convinced of their "eternal security".
And so we lull them with a doctrine saying that if they once got "saved" (ie.
prayed the 'little prayer') - even if it was 20 years ago, then it is
"IMPOSSIBLE" for them to lose their salvation. No holiness needed! Of
course, we have to rely on the fact that they do not read their Bibles - lest
they find out that such a doctrine is a complete fabrication. Thus, we
conveniently leave out of our preaching such Scriptures as this:

"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of
heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. MANY will
say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and
cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works IN YOUR NAME?'
And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART from me, you
EVIL-DOERS.'" (Mt 7:21-23).

Hmmm. "Eternal security", anyone? And of course, we must also leave out
parables such as "The Five Foolish Virgins" because it contains this verse:
"And cast the WORTHLESS SERVANT into outer darkness, where there shall
be WAILING and GNASHING OF TEETH" (Mt 25:30).

Notice that both the above Scriptures are speaking of people who think they
are 'saved' but who END UP IN HELL. -And Jesus says there will be "MANY"
like this. And then there are dozens of other Scriptures such as, "Work out
your own salvation with fear and trembling," and 'Those who do such things
shall NOT inherit the kingdom of God,' and "Without holiness no man shall
see the Lord," etc, etc. -So many Scriptures have to be ignored if we are to
preach this cheap "Once Saved - Always Saved" doctrine. But notice again
how well this teaching suits our comfortable, convenient Western mindset.
Ear-tickling by the truckload. Candy- coated and syrupy-sweet. Can't it be
said that this is making people "two-fold more a child of hell" than they
already were?

(3) The CHEAP "No Cost" RAPTURE Theory.


-Now this is a dangerous one to bring up! But I am concerned not so much
with the TIMING of the Rapture here - but rather with the CHEAPNESS of it.
Do I believe in a 'Rapture'? -Yes, I do believe in a great "catching away" (as
the Bible describes it). But again, we have so degraded it in the West that it
just becomes one more source of false comfort and cheap grace. -This time
to escape without a scratch before any persecution or tribulation begins.
Once again - how CONVENIENT! We are led to believe that our rich, fat-cat
Western Christians with their false salvation and their "no need for holiness"
doctrines will one day be flying in their jet airplanes and "Woosh!" -
suddenly they will be gone. -'Raptured'. Just in time to escape any bad stuff
happening on the earth. There are entire industries and multi-million-dollar
ministries built on this whole thing. The "no cost" Rapture theory. How
wonderfully it tickles Western ears! How we rush to buy the latest Best-
seller!

But wait a minute. Wasn't it Jesus (-talking about the 'time of the end') who
told his DISCIPLES, "This is but the BEGINNING of the birth-pangs. Then
they will deliver you up to tribulation, and put you to death; and you will be
hated by all nations for my name's sake"? (Mt 24:8-9 RSV).

How is it then, that we are taught a 'Rapture' theory today in which we are
"caught up" without any major tribulation or persecution? Jesus in the above
passage clearly tells his DISCIPLES - His true followers - that they MUST
expect great tribulation and persecution before the end. It is very obvious
from all the New Testament writings that Christians must go through
persecution, sufferings and tribulations - and that this will get much worse in
the end-times. There is never a hint that we should expect to be 'Raptured'
without going through this. But again, the Western doctrine preaches
comfort, safety and convenience - a kind of "cheap way out".

Why is this such a serious issue? -Well, a people who have been told again
and again that God will "rescue" them before the real trouble starts - these
are the most ILL-PREPARED people to face real persecution. The people who
are most prepared are those who have looked the danger in the eye, and
prepared their hearts to go through it. With our false comfort we are doing
the worst job in the world of preparing our people for what is to come.

To SUMMARIZE
As you can see, what we have set up in the Western church is an entire
system of FALSE ASSURANCE.
First, we falsely assure people that they are "born again" when they are not.
Then we falsely assure them that it is "IMPOSSIBLE" for them to lose their
salvation - no matter what they do. Then we falsely assure them that they
will escape all end-time tribulation and persecution with an ultra-convenient
'Rapture'. We have it all sewn up! It is a kind-of "cradle to the grave" system
of false salvation.
-A whole set-up devoted to convincing Hell-bound people that they are going
to Heaven by the "cheap and easy" route. Like the Fast Food outlets that we
have invented in the West, it is all about 'Instant Gratification'. It is the
warm and comfortable way. No holiness needed. Just like going through a
McDonalds drive-through. "Do you want fries with that 'HAPPY MEAL', sir?"
Every one of these lies is perfectly suited to our Western mindset. That is
why they have been so successful. But that does not stop them being LIES. -
Nor does it stop them sending multitudes to Hell. We in the West have
become devotees of a kind-of "no pain" religion. Sadly, that religion no
longer resembles true Christianity.
Let us REPENT of ALL such doctrines before it is too late, my friends.
God bless you all. Kindest regards in Christ, Andrew Strom.
