Doctrine is critical
Many times I have heard leaders of a church mention that doctrine is no big issue therefore they never teach doctrine. A Sunday School class mentioned one time that it didn’t matter about doctrine.
We would like to set the record straight. It is ALL about doctrine. It is critical for the church to be taught doctrine and the correct doctrine. There is only one doctrine in reality and it is “the Lord’s Doctrine.” If anything does not agree with the Lord’s doctrine, what God communicated to mankind through His word, you have nothing.
Here is where all the problems begin. You cannot understand doctrine unless you are in the right scripture. Someone may say, Buddy, there are 55 translations out there, which one do I know is the correct one? That in itself explains all the confusion in the modern day church. People setting in church with 2 or 3 different versions, people are going to receive the wrong information.
I challenge you to study the complete background of biblical text, where it came from, and when it became corrupted. There is a historical background where all biblical text came from. We will attempt to share with you the condensed history of this background and you can see for yourself through personal study how it all began. We may be adding some more posts on this topic.
Two lines of scripture
We have only two lines of scriptural reference in the world. It is not 55 translations, but only two lines of text. There is the text from the Antioch line, and then there is the text from the Egyptian line. I’m attempting to share this with you in plain simplified English because I don’t know about you, but I like things simple. Keep it simple SAM! lol.
Anyone that does not believe there is an authority better back up and re-think things. There has to be an authority somewhere, so where is it? One thing you can be certain about, is that God does not lie and cannot lie. The Bible tells us this. He has never lied therefore I believe what He says.
Here is another quick mention and then I’ll explain why. ALL modern day bibles have to come from somewhere so where do they come from? They come from the Authorized King James Bible. Now all the naysayers will say, oh no, that’s not correct it began earlier than that from the originals in the Greek and Hebrew. Only part of your answer is correct. Yes on the Greek and Hebrew but no on the originals because there is no such thing as the “originals.” Why, because they never existed in the first place.
To make a very long and complicated lesson shorter, ALL corrupt versions came from the Alexandrian line of text out of Egypt, more precisely Alexandria Egypt, where the world’s largest library was at one time. I’m talking “before” the 1611 Authorized King James Version.
Antioch line of text
Then you have the Antioch text line which spawned the Massoretic text which was the very text that Jesus and the apostles read from. This line of text was taken from Egypt’s master library by some so called “scholars” and corrupted. This corruption is still involved with the majority of modern day churches because the text has been “added too” and “taken away” from by these brilliant scholars. Did you know the corruptions you see today started in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The Authorized King James Bible has not been corrupted. We even hear it is full of mistakes. It is mistake free. The only changes in it are a few grammatical changes to make it better understood, but the context of scripture has not been tampered with. It is the Inspired and Preserved Word of God. You can believe it. Here is another problem. People these days will believe a lie before they will the truth. They believe a batman comic book before they believe the Word of God.
Fishing for men is similar to fishing for fish. You have to lure them with the Word of God.
