True Christianity

Today’s churches say we should come to church, but Jesus says we should come to Him.

Today’s churches say they’re still waiting on Jesus and the kingdom of God to come, but two thousand years ago Jesus said that He and His kingdom would come within the generation of His contemporaries.

Today’s churches say God is three, but Jesus says God is one and that seeing the Son is seeing the Father.

Today’s churches say that what matters is believing in Jesus and being a part of church, but Jesus says what matters is believing in Jesus and doing the will of God.

Today’s churches say either heaven or hell await you when you die, but Jesus says that He will draw all men to Himself.

Today’s churches provide ritual or entertainment to attract a crowd, but Jesus says we must give an account for every idle word we speak.

Today’s churches present themselves as the people of God even though they meet in thousands of different denominations, but Jesus says a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand and that He alone knows those who are truly His.

Today’s churches have made themselves God’s mediator by saying we cannot be close to God without joining them, but Jesus has no need of a mediator between Himself and His people.

There are many other ways that today’s churches contradict the teaching of Jesus. They do this because they fail to recognize that the church of the New Testament lived in preparation for the coming of the kingdom of God, that the kingdom came on the timetable Jesus set, and that from that time on we should all be seeking the kingdom of God…which is now in our midst.

Today’s churches are not malicious; they are deceived. In fact, the churches have many members who truly love God. Institutionalism and leadership, not the people in the pew, keep the truth at bay. I grieve for all of today’s churches, especially the evangelicals and charismatics in whose ranks I once stood as a pastor. They know and proclaim the truth of Jesus Christ, but are ensnared by the tentacles of organized religion. Organized religion is a monster that consumes people and their resources – people for whom Jesus died and rose again.

What then shall we do? Believe in and obey the Jesus whom the churches preach! Among those churches there are many who know full well that Jesus alone has the power to transform our lives. We simply need to give Him His rightful place.

Where is Jesus’ rightful place? Everywhere – including where you are right now and where I am right now. We must stop walking around on this earth as if He is absent. He is present with every person and He is present in every group. Our responsibility – and our privilege – is to worship Him continually in our hearts. He is not interested in our lip service at certain times and in certain places (for that is the sin of the churches). He wants the entirety of our lives. This is true Christianity.

    Whoa. You almost beguiled me with the affirmations concerning the immeasurable Love of god. Then I read further and saw you affirm that even the servants of Satan will gain heaven.

    • Mike says:

      I don’t know who you are calling “the servants of Satan,” but if you disagree that everyone is going to heaven then how can you agree that the love of God is “immeasurable”?

    • Anonymous says:

      He’s a liar! He’s working for satan, trying to deceive as many as possible, leading them away from Christ which is the only way to God! Matthew 7:13 : “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.
      THIS GUY, MIKE? IS A LIAR AND VERY EVIL!!! HE IS THE SERVANT OF SATAN!

    Hi Mike,

    Like where you are going.
    Wondered if you have ever read any of Emanuel Swedenborg’s writings?

    He was utterly rejected by the church in his time and to some extend us ‘Swedenborgians’ still face similar criticism today. Yet, he testified ideas which makes sense and provide a full picture of what true christianity is. Your thoughts resonate very much with what he wrote in mid to late 1700′s

    Two of his works “Arcana Coelestia” and “True Christian Religion” are the cornerstone of a number of churches that have sprung up out of followers of his works. “Heaven and Hell” has also been one of his most popular works, being a summary of the experiences described in the Arcana.

    If you can cast aside the public criticism, and take some time to read for yourself and pray to the Lord for yourself you may take away something very powerful!
    His books are freely available from http://www.theheavenlydoctrines.org

    warm regards,
    Cor

    PS If you are ok I’ll leave you with two quotes:

    “True wisdom is seeing what is beneficial to your eternal life, and managing your life according to that. You do this when you not only know these things and grasp them with your understanding, but also will and do them.”

    “If charity were its essential element, there would be one church, not a division into many; and it would then not matter if their teachings about faith and external forms of worship were different.”

    • Mike Gantt says:

      I am not familiar with Emanuel Swedenborg. However, I am not surprised that others have written ideas similar to the ones I write because these ideas come from the Scriptures and are available to the ages. I have no private claim to them.

    Wow, talk about false deceivers. Explain this Mike. Joshua said “My Father is greater than I.” If Joshua were Hayah (God), that would have been a lie. Because even Hayah said, “I am not a man that I should lie, nor THE SON OF MAN that I should repent.” Joshua confessed and denied not, that He was THE SON OF MAN. That ALONE tells you that He was not Hayah ‘Elohim. Even Peter and the apostles warned us against people like you, and Peter testifies “God was WITH Joshua,” not “He was Joshua.”

    • Mike Gantt says:

                • Mike Gantt says:

                  I thought you said all English translations are corruptions. Why then are you quoting the King James version (merely substituting “Hayah” for “the LORD”)?

                  • mcginnis360 says:

                    You do the research. Im not doing it for you.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Show me where Hayah says “You go tell the world (you wont find it) all of your research that proves I exist.”

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      Why do you not want to answer my simple question about why you quote the King James version and then change only the one word in it?

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      What part of “it is the most accurate in the English language (yet still has errors),” do you not get? How about I post the Hebrew?

                      “Shama qowl Hayah ‘Elohim shamar asah mitsvah chuqqah tsavah yowm qelalah bow’ nasag; ‘arar ‘iyr ‘arar sadeh.”

                      You understand that? It says “cursed is everyone that does not obey every Word of Hayah your Judge.” If He said “Give glory unto my Name,” then He is explicit that YOU honor His Name Hayah, and Yashua (Joshua) Christ!

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      John 5:22 says that the Father does not judge anyone, but that He has given all judgment to the Son, Jesus Christ.

                      Show me where Hayah says “You go tell the world (you wont find it) all of your research that proves I exist.” There will ONLY be FEW that find the Truth. 70% of the population of the earth confesses Jesus, which has saved none of them.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      There are about 7 billion people in the world and a little over 2 billion of them are Christians. This would mean about 30% of the world’s population confesses Jesus. Where do you get your 70% number?

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      I got news for you stud. 70% proclaim “God” and “Jesus” is who they follow, and your statistics your pulling out of your “opinion.” And even it was “30%,” Hayah said only a tenth would be His people. a Tenth of 8 BILLION, is how much? Thats right, 800,000,000

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      See the Wikipedia article on Major Religious Groups and you will see that the figures I gave you (roughly 30% of humanity professes Christ) are accurate. You can also google the subject and corroborate these numbers with other sources.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

WHAT WERE YOU DELIVERED FROM? CHRIST SAID HE DELIVERED FROM DEATH. YOU ALL ARE STILL DYING! He didnt deliver you. Why? Because you dont know His Name. You know Constantines pagan deliverer.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      “Iesous” was the Greek name for the Hebrew name “Joshua” long before Constantine was born.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      No it wasnt. And you are a retard if you believe that. The name “Iesu” (which is Latin) “Ie” means “hail,” and “su” is short for “Zeus.” Look it up in the Greek when Constantine had it trasnlated and it reads “Iesous,” which is “Hail Zeus.” Dont believe me? Go type “hail zeus” into google, and see what comes up……JESUS.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      Latin septuāgintā seventy. Its a Latin text, that was translated into Greek by Jerome. And has STILL been proven inaccurate, full of mistranslation, and error. The Aleppo Codex is the most accurate (proven as fact) of the Hebrew texts, which is the Origin of the Masoretic texts. I am done with fools.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      Jerome lived 347-420 A.D. (Source: Ancient History at About.com)

                      “Septuagint (sometimes abbreviated LXX) is the name given to the Greek translation of the Jewish Scriptures. The Septuagint has its origin in Alexandria, Egypt and was translated between 300-200 BC.” (Source: Septuagint.net)

                      “Modern study of the Septuagint has benefited greatly from publication of the Dead Sea Scrolls… Additionally, the post-World War II period has facilitated the recognition of the importance of the Septuagint for Jewish studies.” (Source: The Eerdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism, p. 1219)

                      “[New Testament] authors use the Septuagint form of the [Old Testament] more than they do that of any other version.” (Source: Dictionary of New Testament Background, InterVarsity Press, p. 1104)

                      Moron, it was the Catholic church that stated it was before Christ, and if you go talk to any Hebrew “TODAY,” they will tell you that you are a flat out liar.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      The sources I gave you were not Catholic. Moreover, here’s another quote from another non-Catholic source:

                      “[A]nyone seeking to understand the New Testament must take into account its considerable debt to the Septuagint.” – Leonard Greenspoon, The Jewish Annotated New Testament, p. 563)

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Really? Because the True Hebrew Text is Masoretic, not Septuagint. Again, you lie.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      It is true that the Masoretic Text is considered closer to the original Hebrew than the Septuagint. However, this does not mean that the Septuagint is unreliable. Moreover, since the New Testament relies on the Septuagint, who are we to say it should not be relied upon?

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Hayah says moron. The New Testament did not come from the Septuagint, it came from the Textus Receptus, which STILL does not agree with the Septuagint. The Only bibles that used the Sept, was the Vulgate, Geneva, Tyndale, Darby, RSV, ASV, NIV, NKJV, The Voice, NLT, etc. The ONLY BIBLE that used the Masoretic and Textus Receptus was the KJV which is still full of errors because of its “translation to English.” Go look in any concordance and at the beginning of every definition you’ll find the words “uncertain derivation.” You know what that means? It means that “they have no idea where it comes from, nor the meaning.”

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      Here’s yet another reference to help you understand why you’re wrong to disparage the Septuagint:

                      “When Christian writings began to circulate, during the second half of the first century CE, the Bible that the early Christians used for reading and quotation was the Septuagint… Greek-speaking Jews in the Diaspora granted this Greek Bible an authority equivalent to that of the Hebrew texts.” – The New Oxford Annotated Bible, Oxford University Press, 2010, p. 2188

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      If that were the case you incredibly stupid man, the NT “quotes of the OT,” would agree EXACTLY. They in fact, do not, and never have. I can show you all the errors in your statement alone via scripture, but I wont take the time to, because you are pig headed, and stiffnecked. Bye.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      Given that biblical writers were always dealing with handwritten texts and that there were no printing presses, copying machines, or other ways of producing “exact” replicas of anything, it would be wrong of us to expect too much exactness when one biblical writer quotes another. Even so, there are times when it is obvious to us that biblical writers are quoting the Septuagint. For example, Acts 15 is quoting Amos 9. When you look up Amos 9 in the Masoretic Text and then in the Septuagint, it’s obvious the writer of Acts is quoting the Septuagint and not the Masoretic Text.

                      This does not mean that the Masoretic Text is bad and that the Septuagint it good. It simply means that we should be aware of the value of both textual traditions.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      You are an absolute 100% idiot. Scribes spent sometimes fifty years copying one text, to “not remove a jot or a tittle” from the texts. Everything was copied EXACTLY according to the Word of Hayah. The Septuagint is no comparison to the Masoretic, which are the Temple texts. You are just trying to skirt around the issue that you got proved wrong. Admit it. That is the first step to repentance. The next, is to make a 180 degree turn from your sins.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      It is true that scribes were very painstaking in their work. There are, however, over half a million words in the Bible. To expect no scribal errors is unrealistic. The science of textual criticism exists to determine, as much as possible, what the original manuscripts said (since they were written on papyrus, the originals would not have lasted into modern times). The errors that occur in textual transmission are seldom, if ever, substantive.

                      The general similarity of the Septuagint and the Masoretic Text can be noted in the fact that most Bible readers don’t even know whether their Old Testaments are based on the former or the latter. What differences exist between the two are appreciated only by students of the Bible.

                      Repentance from our sins is the right thing for all of us to do. God is love, and we cannot please Him without trusting in His love for us and, in turn, showing that same love to each other.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      What? You know NOTHING about the Biblical scribes. These men spent 50 years in EACH generation copying from one scroll to the next, to see to it that Hayah’s Word was identical to the first. Even Christ stated this.

                      “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”

                      “And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.”

                      “Jots and tittles” were the little “dashes” above the Hebrew letters. By Christ mentioning this, means that it was so meticulous in getting the “jots and tittles” in the letters, that they have neglected the “understanding of the text and the law.” Much like you all have done in following your opinions, you hold to the “traditions of men,” and neglect what Hayah has commanded you. To KEEP HIS NAME IN YOUR MEMORY, AND NOT TO REPLACE IT FOR BAAL, which Jesus is Baal.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      It is ironic that you decry a focus on “jots and tittles” and yet yourself make a big deal about whether one says “Jesus of Nazareth” or “Joshua of Nazareth” even when it’s clear that both terms refer to Israel’s Messiah.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      No, both terms DO NOT refer to The Christ. Are you this idiotic? “Iesous” never came into use for “Christ” until 325ad. Constantine I had a hand in the translations of our “Greek texts, it was he that requested Jerome to “translate the Hebrew texts to Greek” because he abhorred Hebrews. Pull your head out of the sand, and hear what the Spirit saith. THERE IS NO OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN BUT JOSHUA WHEREBY A MAN MUST BE SAVED. JESUS WILL NOT, NOR EVER WILL SAVE YOU.

                      “Jesus” is a transliteration, occurring in a number of languages and based on the Latin Iesus, of the Greek Ἰησοῦς (Iēsoûs), itself a hellenization of the Aramaic/Hebrew ישוע‎ (Yēšûă‘) which is a post-Exilic modification of the Hebrew יְהוֹשֻׁעַ‎ (Yĕhōšuă‘, Joshua) under influence from Aramaic.

                      Are theirs better than mine? Who are you, or is man to say? It is Hayah that judges. Seek not the praise of men, but that which comes from YAH. Or have you not read the Word? I have spent 25 years studying the Hebrew and Greek of the Bible, and I can tell you, not only from experience, but also from evidence, and the Holy Ghost that scholars are fools in Hayah’s sight. Or have you not read “He hath confounded the wise of this world?”

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      Knowing how to translate a name from one language to another is not a test of spirituality. It simply requires that one knows the two languages involved. Book stores and libraries are full of works by translators who all agree that the English name “Jesus” is a valid translation of the Hebrew name “Joshua.” It’s absurd for you to declare they are all wrong about this. God cares about morals, not about letters and pronunciations.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      So you call Hayah a liar? You admit it, and think you serve Him? Liars do not inherit, but the wind.

                      You morons never bother to stop and think, if Jesus is the “Latin name for Yahshua,” you are not Latin, and how come every language spoken today knows him as “Jesus,” and not as “Joshua, or Yahshua?” China even knows him by “Jesus.” So how come they dont know Him by His Factual, REAL Name Joshua? Because Satan the god of the world has blinded your eyes that you should not see the truth.

                      For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

                      Hayah didnt give Him the Name of “Jesus,” He gave Him “Yashua,” which you call Him a liar. So your theology is screwed.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      The names “Jesus” and “Yashua” are interchangeable. See He’s As Close As the Mention of His Name.

WHAT WERE YOU DELIVERED FROM? CHRIST SAID HE DELIVERED FROM DEATH. YOU ALL ARE STILL DYING! He didnt deliver you. Why? Because you dont know His Name. You know Constantines pagan deliverer.

                      And for you all to justify that, you make the claim “its a spiritual death.” Spirit doesnt die, cannot die, your liars. And because of you, and people like you, you are leading Hayahs people astray.

    Secondly, Joshua Himself told Mary, “Go, and tell my brethren that I ascend to my ‘Elohim, and their ‘Elohim, My Father, and their Father.” He did not say “I am going to sit as God.” He even told His apostles, “The time is coming when you shall no more ask of me, but you shall ask the Father, and He shall show you all things.” Meaning they will no longer need a “Mediator.”

                ” ¶ Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
                5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
                6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
                7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
                8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
                9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
                10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.
                11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

  7. mcginnis360 says:

    You are mocking Hayah. And “Hayah” and “God” are not the same thing. ‘Elohim is Hebrew, which in English is “Supreme Judge.” “God” is not a name, it is a position. Hayah is His Name, which there IS NO ENGLISH INTERPRETATION FOR. His Name is Hayah.

    “And ‘Elohim said unto Moses, HAYAH is HAYAH: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, HAYAH hath sent me unto you. And ‘Elohim said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, HAYAH ‘Elohim of your fathers, the ‘Elohim of Abraham, the ‘Elohim of Isaac, and the ‘Elohim of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: THIS (HAYAH) IS MY NAME FOREVER, and this is my memorial unto all generations.”

    • Mike Gantt says:

      YHWH was translated as “Lord” in both the Septuagint and the New Testament. Therefore, it functions as both a name and a title.

        Lol, no it wasnt a “translation,” even if you read the commentaries on the Bibles themselves, they all tell you they followed the tradition of the Babylonian Jews who “replaced His Name” for fear of blasphemy, when Hayah said they did it to serve Baal (Lord). You are a liar and a false prophet!

        “And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.”

        • Mike Gantt says:

          Everyone knows that the Septuagint was a translation. It was a translation of the Hebrew Old Testament to Greek (though obviously people in those days didn’t call it the “Old Testament”).

          Moreover, those who translated it did so in the name of the Lord. They portrayed Baal negatively (see 1 Kings 18:21) just as he is portrayed negatively in the Masoretic Text.

          • mcginnis360 says:

            Bingo you idiot. You just admitted that the original writings were in Hebrew. TY! Now, since they were written in Hebrew, which you have argued for almost a month that they werent, than Hayah deserves respect. Give it to Him.

            Thou hypocrite. Baal means “lord.” To call The Ancient of Days “Hayah” “lord,” is calling Him Baal. You will be judged accordingly.

            “For if we sin voluntarily after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.”

            Adversaries – those that oppose Hayah.

            • Mike Gantt says:

              I’ve always admitted that the Old Testament documents were originally written in Hebrew. I don’t know anyone who believes otherwise.

              English Bibles commonly translate “YHWH” (Yahweh, Jehovah) as “Lord.” These translators are not trying to say that “YHWH” is “Baal.” Rather, they are acknowledging that YHWH, the God of Israel, is the Lord of heaven and earth – in other words, the one true God.

  8. mcginnis360 says:

    Ex 23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.

    Why not provoke Him? Because His NAME was in HIM.

    “Le 19:12 And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou [dissolve, take away, prostitute, break His word) the name of thy 'Elohim: I am HAYAH."

    And yes, I utilize the KJV (it is the most accurate with errors still) because you would never understand the Hebrew. The Hebrew proves you a liar, and so does the Greek.

    "And Manoah said unto the messenger of HAYAH, What is thy name, that when thy sayings come to pass we may do thee honour? And the messenger of HAYAH said unto him, Why askest thou thus after my name, seeing it is secret?"

    It was Christ that was standing before Manoah. His Name is a secret. Joshua.

    "Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver [save] him: I will set him on high, because he hath known MY NAME (HAYAH).”

    Tell Hayah He doesnt care about His own Name, and watch how fast He takes your life.

    ” When thou shalt beget children, and children’s children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil in the sight of HAYAH thy ‘Elohim, to provoke him to anger: I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed. And HAYAH shall scatter you among the Gentiles, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither HAYAH shall lead you.”

    • Mike Gantt says:

      You are making a mockery of God’s name. Your view is not at all the way God thinks about His name. He would be a pedant if that were the case.

      • mcginnis360 says:

        No son, you are the one mocking Hayah. Thats how much He cares about His Name, so much so, that He destroyed 300,000 in the wilderness of Sin for disobeying it.

      • mcginnis360 says:

        And actually, “pedant” would be the wrong usage here. Pedant means pedant
        1588, “schoolmaster,” from M.Fr. pédant (1566), from It. pedante “teacher, schoolmaster,” apparently an alteration of L.L. paedagogantem (nom. paedagogans), prp. of paedagogare (see pedagogue). I am not a teacher. I am an apostle.

    You are the one changing God’s name for in the Hebrew Old Testament it is spelled “YHWH.” In English it is usually pronounced either Yahweh or Jehovah, but you say Hayah and declare the first two pronunciations invalid. How can you say something is invalid that God accepts?

    I am a Hebrew, born of the tribe of Yoseph (Joseph). I know, and understand what “YHWH” is, how it is spoken, how it is understood, as it has been passed down through my family for generations, and not once has it ever been translated as “Lord,” God” Jehovah, or “Yahweh.” It is pronounced “HAYAH.”

    Y – yod, is pronounced “h”
    H – hey, is pronounced “ah”
    W – Vav, is pronounced “y”
    H – hey, is pronounced “ah.”

    HAYAH IS HIS NAME, THE SAME THAT HE GAVE TO MOSES TO DELIVER UNTO ISRAEL FOR ETERNAL GENERATIONS. It was the “rebellious” Jews that “replaced” if for the names of Baal, “Jehovah, Lord, god, Yehovah, Jesus, etc.”

    D0ont believe me? Go type in “Jehovah is Baal” into Google, and it will prove you all as liars. All Hebrews know it is Baal. Thats why we dont use it, or the name “Jesus.” Its is Baal.

    They all are “Baal.” “Lord gawd” is Baal, translated as “Lord God” in English. Go do your own research. Hayah Himself revealed this to me, And it is Him, and His Christ that I ALONE follow!

    • Mike Gantt says:

      It is true that “Baal” is a Semitic word that meant “Lord” or “Master.” That would not mean, however, everyone calling Jesus “Lord” is making reference to “Baal.” You shouldn’t confuse the two.

      The name Jesus (or Joshua, or Yeshua) is the name given to the Son of God and is the greatest name ever associated with God. It is above every name in every age. It is the only name by which the creation is saved.

      If you want to be more biblical, you should be paying more attention to the name of the one you call Joshua Christ, and less attention to the names which preceded His (like YHWH).

      You are majoring on minors. You are confusing and misleading those who simply want to know God and please Him. God is love. Love transcends the limitations of human language.

      • mcginnis360 says:

        • Mike Gantt says:

          God takes His name personally, but not pedantically.

          • mcginnis360 says:

            Moron, Hayah has never been called “God.” God comes from a Baal idol, and wasnt used for Hayah until Babylonian captivity of the Jews. Go research it. Hayah MOST CERTAINLY takes His Name seriously, and so does His Son “YAHSHUA (JOSHUA)” WHO CAME IN HIS FATHERS NAME “HAYAH.”

            “Sing unto YAH, sing praises to his name (HAYAH): extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name YAH, and rejoice before him.” Psalm 68:4.

            That is the FACTUAL Hebrew in the Masoretic (Aleppo codex) which is the same text that was a compilation of the “Temple texts” that Christ Joshua Himself spoke. He never EVER quoted any Septuagint texts, and in fact, the Septuagint and Masoretic (which has been proven is the FACTUAL ORIGINAL TEXTS) dont even agree, not only in translation, but the SEPTUAGINT IS FULL OF ERRORS! I am done with you cursed people.

            • Mike Gantt says:

              In addition to the other references I have given you, here are more:

              “[W]henever a New Testament writer refers to or quotes scripture, he is interpreting texts so regarded by the Jewish community. The scriptures were not known to these writers in their original Hebrew, but in Greek translation, the Septuagint.” – The New Oxford Annotated Bible, Oxford University Press, 2010, p. 2205

              • mcginnis360 says:

                Hayah did not tell you to “adhere to bibles, books, or mans opinions.” He told you to adhere to His Word, which was only written in Hebrew. Man translated it to Greek (in 325ad), and into English in 1500ad. Hayah does not stand behind any English Bible, as most Hebrew words are not correctly defined in Greek or English. Example:

                “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.” Psalm 1:1

                Hebrew: “happy is man that is not walking in the advice of the immoral, not abiding in the action of sin, not sitting in the seat of mockers.”

                • mcginnis360 says:

                  That is 100% different then the English translation, which could be mistrued to say “thats its okay to sin, as long as you are not “continuing.” Not according to the Hebrew, which Hayah states “Walk before me, and be thou PERFECT (which means 100% moral).”

                  • Mike Gantt says:

                    God does not require people to know Hebrew. If you hear God’s word in English, you can obey it.

                      In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
                      2 The same was in the beginning with God.
                      3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
                      4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

                      This is not John speaking of Joshua as the “Word.” This is John describing the Word as the Holy Ghost that descended upon Joshua at water Baptism. Catholic Scholars (with great influence) translated the KJV along with a few protestant clergy, which when the parties could not agree on certain “definitions in the languages” leaned to tradition of the Vatican instead (see Nicene Council). In the actual Greek, Jn 1:14 says, “The Logos (Holy Ghost) transformed flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory (divine authority), the glory (divine authority) as of that (in other words, He appeared as that born of the Father, but was not actually born) born from the Father full of Gods divine presence and truth.”
                      The Logos transformed Joshua’s flesh into Christ. Joshua was a natural man as we, born of the stock of Israel, seed of Adam, made in the image and likeness of God. This is why Judaism and what is falsely called Christianity today do not agree on anything. False christianity follows a three headed god (also known historically as Baal), while Judaism follows One God, even as Joshua stated “The Lord our God is One Lord.” Most churches overlook this statement and read into it this way:

                      “The Lord our God is three in one, yet one, having three distinct characters.” This is not possible. The word “trinity” means three. Not three in one, nor one in three. But three.

                      They try to make Joshua God, when Jesus said Himself (and told many) dont worship me, but the Father that sent me. “Joh 8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.”

                      The Father was with Him, Joshua was not the Father. “Joh 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.” Did you see that? Joshua did not speak of Himself. Not once did He ever declare to anyone that He was God, as that would be pride. He spake only what the Father gave for Him to speak (as should we). Joshua again stated in prayer to the Father (God doesnt pray to Himself): ” Joh 10:30 I and my Father are one (Gk – in agreement).” “That they all may be one (Gk – in agreement); as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one (Gk – in agreement) in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” Does this make us God also? Because we are One with the Father as Joshua is One with the Father? No, nor Him. Paul said when all things have been subdued unto God, then shall the Son (Joshua) likewise step down handing all things back to the Father. David declared that this is the reason why the Heathen rage, because they cannot understand this. Peter repeated this in Acts. “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed (Christ), saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us……I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”

                      The Hebrew word “Begotten” means: “to birth, or raise up, to bring to maturity.” We also because of Christ are “born-again, begotten, raised up to maturity.” This is how Christ became our Salvation. He showed us how to “Grow up into the Father.” By walking in His steps. Only speaking that which the Father gives us commandment to speak.

                      Again, you follow false versions of scripture. That scripture states that Circumcision is the obeying of the commandments. Uncircumcision is the disobeying of the commandments. Read the Greek. Look up EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS FROM THE MOUTH OF HAYAH!

                      The will of the Old Testament God is that we should obey Jesus (whom you insist on only calling Joshua). Even if you don’t believe he’s God, you should still obey him because that is God’s stated will.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      I obey Christ, because He is Christ, I do not obey your pagan jesus. Christ Joshua ONLY is salvation.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      Where in the teachings of Christ does He tell us to call Him “Yashua” but not “Jesus”?

                      He taught us to love. What does your teaching have to do with love? How does it help a person to love God and others more to condemn people who speak the name of Jesus in good faith?

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Christ said His return is to judge you, and your works. He NEVER said He will judge you in love, or with love. He said “woe unto you that call evil good, and good evil.”Thats exactly what you are doing.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      Love can be tough. Christ knows how to temper His judgments with mercy. This is why we can trust Him.

                • Mike Gantt says:

                  God is fully aware that we humans speak different languages. He has told us to spread His word. Therefore, He is very supportive of the effort to translate His word into every language.

                  • mcginnis360 says:

                    REALLY? How is it that every nation on the planet calls him “Jesus,” and not Joshua which is His Real Name. Even Christ declared false prophets would arise and deceive many in the Name of Christ, which you are doing with the name “Jesus.”

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      No, you see Hayah’s Response in Jeremiah 23:27
                      “Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have replaced my name for Baal.”

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      You are causing people to forget His name by focusing on obscure linguistic issues of dubious authenticity.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Wrong moron. Teaching people that “Jesus is God” is a pagan concept, and is not even the Name of the Messiah you think you are trying to lead people to. Your thoughts have deceived you. Turn back to Hayah while you still have time to amend your errors. Because “repenting on the death bed” is not coming to Christ.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      You keep referring to God by old covenant names like YHWH, but it is the new covenant name of Jesus that matters.

                      Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers and elders of the people, if we are on trial today for a benefit done to a sick man, as to how this man has been made well, let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead–by this name this man stands here before you in good health. “He is the STONE WHICH WAS REJECTED by you, THE BUILDERS, but WHICH BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone. “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:8-12 NASB

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Thats funny. Because even the New Testament declares that He came to perform the Covenant given unto Abraham, the which you also are to walk in.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      He walked faithfully in the covenant of Abraham, but because of this we walk in the new covenant…which is better (see Hebrews 8).

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      BS! Peter the apostle said we that follow Christ should walk in His same steps. Not “different steps.” He walked in the law, the prophets, and faith. So should we. You are a fat liar buddy.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      We can’t walk in His steps according to the flesh because we are not Jews in Palestine under the Mosaic law. That is, we can’t walk in His literal steps. We walk in the spirit of His steps, meaning that we walk in love.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Either the Word of Hayah, is The Word, or it isnt. You cannot claim “metaphor,” when Hayah said it “LITERALLY.” Be a man. You are deceived if you think you can “please Hayah,” when you do not do what He says.

  10. mcginnis360 says:

    You: “The scholars who translate the Bible into English have to be well-trained in Greek. Are your qualifications in Greek better than theirs?”

    Really? The original translators of the Bible never even spoke Greek you moron. They spoke Latin. James Strong came along, because he did speak Greek and Hebrew, and noticed that some of the texts that were translated to English, were not correct. Thats why he made the concordance (for his own personal use), then translated his own Bible, which states nothing compared to any “Bible” we have today.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Strong_%28theologian%29
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strong%27s_Concordance

    • Mike Gantt says:

      Strong’s Concordance is a wonderful tool, used by many – including me. There is nothing in the articles you sent that supports your strange contention that translators of the Bible didn’t know Greek. How could someone translate Greek who didn’t know Greek?

      • mcginnis360 says:

        Go look it up moron. New definitions of the original languages are being found right and left, that had the original scholars known and understood Greek, would have known this little fact.

        • Mike Gantt says:

          Scholars do learn new things all the time, but “love never fails” has been found in 1 Corinthians 13 for almost two thousand years, and the same can be said for all the important truths of the Bible. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

  11. mcginnis360 says:

    Over 100 scholars worked on the “new versions” of the Bible today, only 54 worked on the KJV, and those that worked on the “newer versions” didnt speak a lick of Greek. James Strong was the only one that understood Greek, and he even had a problem with the “English translations.” Thats why he intended to make a concordance. Our English Bibles have over 70,000 missing words, 6,000 mistranslations, and full of errors.

    If you think you are a scholar, and understand the Word, you are sorely mistaken. Many “scholars” have lost their speech for trying to “translate Hayahs Word into English.”

    http://www.oocities.org/ipoint.geo/tracts/voice2.html
    http://www.crossroad.to/Bible_studies/Message.html

    Not only does Hayah forbid anyone to “add to or take from His Word” under the first covenant, but states it again in the New Testament that anyone wanting to “alter His Word is guilty of all ten plagues.” To alter His Word to say “Jesus” when “Jesus” is not found anywhere in the texts, is “adding to His Word,” when He Himself states “I will send a Prophet in MY NAME (YAH – Yahshua), and will put MY WORDS IN HIS MOUTH.” “Jesus” is not translated as “Yahshua,” you CANNOT translate a tongue back to a language, that it did not derive from. Case in point: Your name “Michael” only has one name in English, one in Hebrew, one in Latin, one in Greek. No matter how many times you “translate that name” through all of these languages, it will still come to your English speaking tongue as “Michael.” “Yahshua” does not come into the English speaking tongue as “Jesus,” because that is a Latin name. The English name is “Joshua,” which is the English form of “Yahshua.” Even if you were to translate that Name to “Latin, and Greek, back to English,” it WILL ALWAYS RETURN TO ENGLISH AS “JOSHUA.” NOT “JESUS.” Any moron (with no scholarship credentials whatsoever) can figure this out.

    “Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural (carnal) man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of YAH: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Master, that He may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.”

    Even Paul declares you a fool, as being carnal. His Name is Spiritual, it is not “carnal,” as you make it to be. “Jesus” is a carnal name, not even associated with “The Christ of Hayah.”

    • Mike Gantt says:

      So your point is that there is not a single English translation of the Bible that can be trusted? What then are people who know only English to do?

      • mcginnis360 says:

        Go get a KJVI (Interlinear) and study it for oneself.
        http://power-biblecd.software.informer.com/5.4/
        This will tell you that the English translations are incorrect, and show you the actual “placements of words and how they are supposed to be read in the Bible,” not how they actually are “read” in the Bible.

        • Mike Gantt says:

          Greek syntax is different from English syntax. No one should expect the word order in an interlinear to be identical between the languages.

          • mcginnis360 says:

            Wrong again stud. “Scholars” translated the words according to the placement of the words. They did not “translate exactly” because definitions of words, and compound structures of sentences were not even comparable.

    • Mike Gantt says:

      What’s your point?

      • mcginnis360 says:

        The point is, every English version of the Bible is wrong. Even the scholars of every “version” state that they followed the “tradition of removing the name of YHWH (Hayah) to prevent misuse of His Name.” “Jesus” is not the Name of the Christ.

        • Mike Gantt says:

          If you know Greek and Hebrew, I’m happy for you. But to tell all the English-speaking people who don’t know Greek and Hebrew that they can’t trust an English edition of the Bible is just plain wrong. It’s also unfair to them.

          • mcginnis360 says:

            How is it wrong, and unfair? Christ Himself rebuked MANY for following heresy. THAT IS MY JOB DUDE!

            “And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness; And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended.”

            If you are offended, then it is because you are offended at His Word. The Truth hurts, get over it.

  12. mcginnis360 says:

    The NAS and the NIV are both grievously guilty of adding to, diminishing from and changing the words of God. This is not just my opinion, but documented facts from their own “bibles” and concordances. I will give just a few of the many examples I have found. In Judges 16:13,14 the NAS & NIV add 33 extra words to the text, which are not found in any Hebrew manuscripts, but according to the NIV footnote are found in some Greek copies. In II Sam. 13:34 the NIV adds another 21 words from the Greek. They are not found in the NAS. And again the NIV adds another 15 words to Psalm 145:13 from the Syriac – which are not in the NAS. In Gen. 4:8 NIV adds from the Greek: “let us go out into the field.”

    I have found about 40 examples in the NAS and around 80 in the NIV where they do not follow the Hebrew text but go with the Greek, Syriac, Targum etc. II Chron. 22:2 tells us that Ahaziah was 42 years old when he began to reign. All Hebrew texts, plus the ASV, Geneva, Darby,Young,Spanish, NKJV, and even the RSV & NRSV say 42. Yet the NAS & NIV change this number to 22 on the basis of the Syriac and some LXX copies. This information is in a footnote in the Scofield NIV of 1984. It is recorded in II Kings 8:26 that he was 22 years old. There is a rather easy solution to this apparent contradiction. Jehu was appointed by God to cut off the house of Ahab II Cron.22:7. Ahaziah was son in law to Ahab II Kings 8:27. So if you count how long each king related to Ahab reigned, you come up with exactly the 42nd year as a son of Ahab(related by marriage) when Ahaziah began to reign, though physically he was only 22. Ahab I Kings 16;29 -22 years reigned, Jehoram of Israel 12 years II Kings 3:1 and Jehoram of Judah 8 years II Chron. 21:5. Thus 22 + 12 + 8 =42. The new versions are based on unbelief. They say, “This is a scribal error.” They don’t believe God has preserved his word without error. They do not have an inspired, inerrant Bible in their hands. Ask them and you will see.

    Proof right here that the LXX is incorrect.
    Proof that the English “translations” are wrong:

    “Ac 12:4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter (Greek is pascha, which means Passover) to bring him forth to the people.”

    ” Mt 28:1 ¶ In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

    “Mr 16:2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.”

    “Mr 16:9 ¶ Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.”

    “Lu 24:1 ¶ Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.”

    “Joh 20:1 ¶ The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.”

    ” Joh 20:19 ¶ Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.”

    “Ac 20:7 ¶ And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.”

    “1Co 16:2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.”

    Well, thats funny. The Greek in all of these scriptures is “De mia Sabbaton….” which says “Also one Sabbath.”

    “In the end [also] [late in the day] of the sabbath , as it began to dawn [to grow light] toward [into] the first [one] day of the week [Sabbath], came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre .”

    “Now [also] upon the first [one] day of the week [Sabbath], very early in the morning , they came unto the sepulchre , bringing the spices which they had prepared , and certain others with them .”

    So either “scholars” got it wrong, or EVERY ENGLISH SPEAKING BIBLE IS WRONG. Which is it?

    • mcginnis360 says:

      This is the True Greek on the KJV (which by all scholars (excluding the makers of the new “per-versions”) agree is the most accurate) in these scriptures.

      “De mia Sabbaton orthros bathus erchomai epi mnema phero aroma hos hetoimazo kai tis sun autos.”

      This translates to English as:

      “Also one Sabbath early before dawn accompany upon the grave bearing aromas that make ready also certain companions with others.”

      This would be the most accurate translation of the Greek text.

      However, the KJV translated it as: “Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.”

      ASV using LXX: “But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came unto the tomb, bringing the spices which they had prepared.”

      BBE using LXX: “But on the first day of the week, at dawn, they came to the place where his body had been put, taking the spices which they had got ready.”

      Darby using LXX: “But on the morrow of the sabbath, very early indeed in the morning, they came to the tomb, bringing the aromatic spices which they had prepared.”

      MKJV using LXX: “And on the first of the sabbaths, while still very early, they came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.”

      MNT using LXX: “On the Sabbath Day they rested in obedience to the commandment, but in the deep dawn of the first day of the week they took the spices which they had prepared, and came to the tomb.”

      RSV using LXX: “But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices which they had prepared.”

      TCNT using LXX: “But very early on the first day of the week they went to the tomb, taking with them the spices that they had prepared.”

      WEB using LXX: “But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they and some others came to the tomb, bringing the spices which they had prepared.”

      WNT using LXX: “And, on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices they had prepared.”

      YLT using LXX: “And on the first of the sabbaths, at early dawn, they came to the tomb, bearing the spices they made ready, and certain others with them,”

      If the “LXX” is correct, all of these bibles using it, would not drastically disagree with each other as much as they do, unless every English translation of the texts are wrong. Here is the Textus Receptus on the same verse.

      “th de mia twn sabbatwn orqrou baqeoV hlqon epi to mnhma jerousai a htoimasan arwmata kai tineV sun autaiV.”

      See a problem here? Its the English, or the scholars that are wrong. Now, which is it? If the “scholars are wrong,” then you might as well throw away every Bible you have in your possession. If the “English is wrong,” then you might as well throw away all of your English translations, and get back to the original texts, STUDYING TO SHOW THYSELF APPROVED UNTO YAH!

              What Is The Real Name Of Jesus?
              Yeshua is the original Aramaic proper name for Jesus the Nazarene, who lived from about 6 B.C.E. to 27 C.E. (A.D.) The word “Jesus” is actually a mis-transliteration of a Greek mis-transliteration. The Emperor Constatine even mistook Jesus for Apollo, the son of the Greek god Zeus. In Hebrew Yeshua means Salvation while the name Jesus has no intrinsic meaning in English whatsoever.

              askjeeves.com.

              Go check it out. You can google it also, read it all over the web. “Jesus” is not His name, and never was, seeing as how “Iesous” is Latin, and carries no weight, no definition in the Hebrew whatsoever, and “Jesus” is not even an English name. It is Latin. We just added a “J” to it. Yahshua, would be Joshua in English. If “Iesous” were His name in Latin, it would still be “Joshua in English.” Moron.

              • Mike Gantt says:

                The etymology of “Jesus” is an interesting study. It does not, however, justify this strange teaching of yours that people are offending God by using the name “Jesus.”

                • mcginnis360 says:

                  First of all, “Jesus” is a Greek name, not “English.” Secondly, EVERY Greek speaking person has said it means “son of Zeus.” Whether you like it or not, you are not serving Christ….This is Truth!
                  The English Name is “Joshua” from the Hebrew “Yahshua.” Even if you translated it from Hebrew, to Latin, to Greek, to English, the Name will still ALWAYS, AND FOREVER BE JOSHUA, NEVER “Jesus.” “Jesus” in 1688 was spelled “Iesus.” It wasnt until 1688 that the English started using a “J” in place of the “I.” Thus, we took a “Greek name,” and added a “J” in place of the “I.” Its STILL GREEK MORON! The English Name is Joshua, not “Jesus.”

                  • Mike Gantt says:

                    “Jesus” comes from Greek, but it is clearly an English name for it is comprised of English, not Greek, letters.

                    Indeed, both the English names “Jesus” and “Joshua” can be traced to the same Hebrew name: “Joshua.” The reason that we have two names is that “Joshua” came to English directly from the Hebrew, while “Jesus” came to English going through Greek first (and some would say Latin as well).

                      You “claim to be His watchmen,” yet are blind, and dumb, knowing nothing of that which you speak.

                      In the same mouth you bless Baal, and call him the Creator. He created NOTHING! He is a false idol! Lord and God are both the meanings of Baal moron.

                      Example: in Chinese, “Hayah” is called “Buddha.” Yet Buddha even according to themselves is a “false idol.” In Islam, “Hayah” is called Allah, yet “Allah” is a false “idol of the moon deity.” In English you call Hayah “lord god,” yet “Lord god” is Baal. Still idols moron. Jesus is an idol of Zeus (go look at the pics of the two, they are the same person).

                      You are majoring on minors (the date of Christ’s birth, the translations of His name). God is love…and Jesus of Nazareth is the most profound demonstration possible of that reality.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Buddy, that is not a minor to worship Christs birthday, on Pagan ceremonies. You celebrate “church sabbath” on witches day (Sunday). Every day of the week is named after pagan gods, which Hayah COMMANDED that you dont even name. You will revolt more and more, because Hayah said you would. You are the worst of the kind. Natural brute beast. Reveling in your own deceivings.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      I won’t worship Christ’s birthday – I worship Christ every day. I don’t go to church. As for the Sabbath, every day is the Sabbath in the kingdom of God. Today is the day of the Lord.

                      As for the days of the week, what do you call them if not Monday through Sunday?

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      The same as Hayah called them. First day, second day…..Sabbath.

    • Mike Gantt says:

      No single translation is perfect. That does not mean that all translations should be rejected.

      • mcginnis360 says:

        If there is “one lie, one mistranslation,” it CANNOT be trusted to be Hayah’s Inerrant Word. “Inerrant” means “without fault.”

        • Mike Gantt says:

          Prior to the printing press, all copies of scripture were produced by hand. “To err is human and to forgive is divine.” That is, it’s simply not reasonable to expect a manuscript of the entire Bible, even in the original languages, to be without a single copying error. Such errors do not keep us from properly understanding the Bible because they’re frequently just a misspelling or something else as inconsequential. God is not concerned about our copying skills – He’s concerned with whether or not we love Him and each other sufficiently.

          • mcginnis360 says:

            “To err is human and to forgive is divine.”

            Where is this in the Word? NOWHERE!

            “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of YAH.

  13. Mike Gantt says:

    mcginnis360,

    As best I can tell, you are proclaiming a God you call “Hayah.” You are using the Bible to do so, but in languages other than English for you declare all English translations of the Bible to be false. Further, you are proclaiming that the name “Jesus” is offensive to God because it is a false translation of the original name.

    If a person who speaks only English were to believe you, what would you have him do to get right with God?

    • mcginnis360 says:

      What did Christ command?

      “And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, YAH: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. He saith unto him, Which? Joshua said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? Joshua said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.”

      • Mike Gantt says:

        So if a person reads this version in a typical English translation, and follows it, he would then, by your reckoning, be in the right with God. In other words, it makes no difference if you substitute the name “YAH” for “God” and “Joshua” for “Jesus.”

        • mcginnis360 says:

          First of all, pecker head, “God” was a replacement for “Yah.” “Lord” was a replacement for “Hayah.” No, they do not mean the “same things.” Do you call “The Supreme Ancient of Days” Baal? Because you do on a daily basis.

          • Mike Gantt says:

            Not only do I not call “the Ancient of Days” “Baal,” I do not know anyone who does. What Bible do you use?

            • mcginnis360 says:

              Moron, to call Him “lord or god,” you are calling Him Baal.

              • Mike Gantt says:

                You are saying to call God “God’ or “Lord” is to call Him “Baal”?

                • mcginnis360 says:

                  Dude, what are you not understanding? Did you graduate high school? Eat paint chips when you were a kid? It is obvious Hayah has never given you any type of knowledge whatsoever. Pay attention!

                  The English words “Lord and God” come from the Hebrew name “Baal, and Baal gawd.” Do you understand what this means? That means, that everytime you call the Creator “Lord, or God” you are calling Him Baal. In Hebrew, you would be stoned not only for blasphemy, but also for calling “Baal” your lord. Paul condemned the Jews’ practice of this in Romans 2:

                  “For the name of Yah is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you (the Jews that replaced His Name for Baals), as it is written.”

                  You blaspheme Hayah via the Jews that replaced His Name for Baals. They were Sadusees and Pharisees of the Babylonian sect, that Joshua condemned to hell. Read the Word.

                  “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?”

                  • Mike Gantt says:

                    I can’t throw out all English translations on your say so. Who could?

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Thats funny. Because Hayah said “Serve Him only,” not your “opinion.” I also served in the manner you do, until Hayah Himself spoke to me, and told me the truth. I threw out my English translations, and read and study the factual Hebrew. Every Greek word in the NT goes back to a Hebrew word. That wouldnt be possible, if it was “ONLY” written in Greek. That means that someone translated it from the Hebrew.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      Why should anyone throw out all English translations on your say so?

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Because Hayah said so.

                      “My word is likened to a fire? saith Hayah; a hammer that dashes the rock in pieces?”

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      So, Hayah told you to tell all the rest of us to throw out all English translations? What Bible are we supposed to read?

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Try picking up the original texts, and learning the original. The Hebrew Bible is from the Masoretic texts directly, which are the Temple texts. Go pick up a KJVI, and you will learn something. I advise you to go online, and pick up the “PowerBible CD 4.0.” It has the KJV Interlinear, and will show you the original texts, it even carries the Textus Receptus, which you can read yourself. It even shows you the “real definitions of the words,” not the ones “scholars added.”

            • mcginnis360 says:

              Moron, to call Him “lord or god,” you are calling Him Baal.

              Ex 3:15 And *gawd* said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The *Baal gawd* of your fathers, the *gawd* of Abraham, the *gawd* of Isaac, and the *gawd* of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

              Everytime you call Him “Lord, or god, or lord god,” you are calling Him Baal. He said NOT TO! I dont give a damn about your opinion, nor about what “you want to believe,” I am telling you the TRUTH, which He is! Heed it or lose your life!

              • Mike Gantt says:

                Here’s the King James version of 1 Kings 18:21:

                “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.”

                Elijah certainly didn’t think he was calling God “Baal” when he used the terms “Lord” and “God.” I don’t see why you should.

                • mcginnis360 says:

                  Elijah never used the words “Lord God,” Moron. Look it up. He actually used the Name “Hayah, your Yah.”

                  Eli-Yah literally means “Hayah the Judge.”

                  • Mike Gantt says:

                    Those scholars who translated the Bible from Hebrew into English thought “Lord” and “God” were good translations of what Elijah said. Here are 18 of them. Most use “Lord” and “God.” Some use “Yahweh” and “God.” One uses “Jehovah” and “God.” I don’t see any that use “Yah” as you do. Why should anyone take your word for the translation over all these other scholars?

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      You are about an idiot!

                      “Ps 68:4 Sing unto ‘El, sing praises to His Name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name YAH, and rejoice before Him.”

                      You calling king David a liar?

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      Of course I am not calling King David a liar. He is one of those who prophesied rightly of Jesus Christ.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                  “Thou art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness, An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law. Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?

                  • Mike Gantt says:

                    Don’t you see that God is concerned with our morality? That is, He cares about whether we lie, steal, cheat, or otherwise defraud our neighbors. He wants us to love each other. He is not focused on how we spell or pronounce words as you suggest.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Mike, morality also pertains to keeping His Name Holy, and KEEPING IT! If you forget His Name, you become immoral. The power is in the Name according to all of the prophets and apostles.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      Keeping His name is a spiritual act, not a linguistic one.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      No, it isnt. If Christ said “It is written,” then you are to abide by WHAT IS WRITTEN!

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      But you are telling people who speak only English that they cannot trust any English version of the Bible. If that’s the case, how can they abide by what is written since they can’t read it?

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      How many have you seen “abiding in Christ” from any English Translation? I have not found a one. I have not met (including you) a single person that truly represents Christ, as Moses did, as the apostles did, since the days of the apostles. Why? Because since the day of the apostles (approx. 325ad,) we have not had the inerrant word of Hayah.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerome

                      Jerome was the first to translate Hebrew texts into Latin, for the Vulgate, and he also utilized “Socrates, Plato, etc.” in his works to “describe certain events, places, or subjects” in his translation. In other words, he included Greek mythology into his works. Constantine hired him to write the Vulgate.

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      We don’t need to be concerned with Latin.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Thats funny moron, because you are. You are calling the Master after a Latin name, not by His English, nor Hebrew Name, which is BLASPHEMY!

                    • Mike Gantt says:

                      I’m calling Him by His English name because that’s the language I speak. If I spoke only Spanish I’d be calling Him by His Spanish name, and so on.

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Hayah does not have an English Name moron. Hayah does not mean Lord, God, Jehovah, or Yahweh. Those are all names of Baal. Exodus 3, He told Moses what His Name is, and that this Name was His Name for all eternity. It is not “translated into other languages.” Read Romans 3. The Jew has the advantage over the Gentile because of this. Unto the Jew Hayah committed to trust His written oracles, for the True Jews to deliver to the world. That does not mean “translating into multiple languages,” as Hebrew has no “vowels.” Thus, since it has no vowels, it could only be “perverted into another language,” not “taught to another language, or from another.”

                    • mcginnis360 says:

                      Here is another prime example: This is how much Hayah thinks of His Name “Hayah,” and no, it is not translated into English, it does not carry a “translation” in any language but Hebrew.

                      “”He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.” (Psalms 111:9)

                      The Hebrew word is “yare’ ” and means: to fear; morally, to revere; caus. to frighten:–affright, be (make) afraid, dread(-ful), (put in) fear(-ful, -fully, -ing), (be had in) reverence(-end), X see, terrible (act, -ness, thing). (Strong’s 3372). ”

                      Even David said His Name is to be Revered, It is Holy, It is Terrible, and you should be AFRAID to call Him by any other name.

                      “Ps 111:10 The fear of HAYAH is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.”

                      Again, it is written:

                      “Pr 9:10 The fear of HAYAH is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”

                      If you reject His Name, you have no knowledge, no wisdom, and no understanding from Him. Pure, plain, and simple.

  14. mcginnis360 says:

    All of the English speaking Bibles utilized the “Vulgate” in their translations. They did not use the “LXX” or the TR (The KJV is the only one that utilized the TR), as the LXX no lo9nger exists, and the TR ALL Scholars reject, even though it is the most accurate. If the “original” isnt authentic, and it is not 100% accurate, or truthful, then every copy after that will be further from the truth.

  15. mcginnis360 says:

    Take the KJV for example: Lets say it is “the most accurate (even scholars agree).” You take it, and set it on a table. Then you take blank pages, and start copying page by page, but in these “new pages” you add or alter a single word (i.e., Easter from Passover, Jesus from Joshua, First day from Sabbath, etc.), by the end of your “copying,” you have altered an entire document. Now, 400 years down the road, someone gets the hair brained idea, to “make another copy.” “The same thing occurs.” Now, instead of holding to “sacred texts,” every Jo Blo and his brother is now making their own versions, and the system of religious beliefs has become a failure. The True worship of the Creator Hayah, has now become obsolete. Right? Welcome to satans plan since the garden of Eden.

    “And I will put war between you and the woman, and between thy fruits and her fruits; it shall shake thy head, and thou shalt steer him off course.”

    Actual Hebrew.

    • Mike Gantt says:

      I think that the King James is a wonderful translation in many ways. When you suggest, however, that scholars universally regard it as the most accurate translation, you are wrong.

      • mcginnis360 says:

        No, I’m not. I dont know what scholars you have been talking to, or “reading about,” but the majority hold the KJV up the most accurate.

        • Mike Gantt says:

          If the majority of scholars think the KJV is the most accurate, why do they keep creating new translations?

          And, in any case, I thought you disregarded all English translations?

          • mcginnis360 says:

            It is not “scholars” that are coming up with “new translations.” The “originator” of the LB (Living Bible) was a blue collar man, that couldnt understand the KJV. So he sat down, and wrote his own translation, which doesnt even compare to any text alive today. Secondly, you have not been listening. I do not advocate any English translation. But the KJV is the closest to the original texts as humanly possible. But it still is full of errors.

  16. mcginnis360 says:

    Ex. 23:13:”…and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of your mouth.”

    Hosea 2:17,19 “I (YHVH – Hayah) will take the names of the Baals (lords) off her (His Bride’s) lips”.

You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. Satans goal since the beginning was to remove Hayahs people from “Salvation.” And he has done it. May Yah have mercy on you. Because your father the devil wont.

          • mcginnis360 says:

            Yep, and you wont. Because THERE IS NO ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOR HIS NAME, which is why they substituted it for Baal moron!

          • mcginnis360 says:

            “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world understood him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of YAH, even to them that believe on his name…”

            Yahshua, is the Son of YAH, the Father, and it says CLEARLY, to those that “believed on His Name” are the Sons of YAH.

  17. Mike Gantt says:

    mcginnis360,

    I always show initial deference to someone who claims to be speaking in the name of the Lord. I try to listen and learn. Only when I listen long enough to find sufficient evidence, do I make a decision to accept or reject what is being said.

    I have read the many comments you have written here, much of which has been repetitive. I find your message, practically speaking, incomprehensible. You are saying that all English translations of the Bible are corrupt. Further, you seem to be saying that the names of God and Jesus are not to be translated into English or any language. I’m not going to give up all English translations of the Bible and trust you in their place. Nor should anyone else.

    You can keep posting here if you want, but I can no longer respond to every repetitive and abstruse claim that you make.

    Jesus is Lord and the Bible is the word of God. That defines the essence of my belief. You have not shaken it.

    P.S. I have given this same response to “actsapostolos” who seems to hold to the same strange doctrine that you do.

    • mcginnis360 says:

      Mike, The majority of “True Jews” hold to the Truth of the scripture, and “the truth aint in no English Bible.” I guarantee that, and would bet my life on it. You stated that “the name Jesus was around before Constantine,” on another thread, and I would like to know where you are pulling this info from. Because according to every Hebrew historical document known to date, “Yahshua Mashiyach” was in the region of Israel, all through Asia Minor until 400 ad. This name “Iesous” never appeared in any document until after 400ad. Matter of fact, it was the Council of Ephesus where this name first appeared. Josephus did not write a Greek history, He wrote in Hebrew, as he was a Jewish Historian, and his original writings the name “Iesous” never appears. It wasnt changed to “Jesus” in his writings until after 1600.

      Secondly, Etymology: means studying the true meanings and values of words. If you value “Christ at all,” you would stick to the “True meaning,” and “definition” of His Name, not add a name that has “no meaning” in the Hebrew language, which “HE WAS HEBREW!”

      • mcginnis360 says:

        You all want so badly for the “Savior” to come out of a Gentile bloodline, because you abhor Jews, and Israel. And dont say you dont, because it is the truth, and your sins will find you out. Read the scriptures. “Did Yahshua (Joshua) come unto His own, and His own received Him not (according to John)?” Then He would have never carried the name “Iesous, or Iesus, or Jesus.” Go look up the name “Jesus” in Websters dictionary. It comes from the “Latin (which the New Testament was not written in) as Iesous.” In Greek it is “Iesus.” Here lies the problem Mikey.

        We have it on a very reliable source (not only the Aleppo Codex, but also Hayah Himself, Qumran cave 4, among many others) that the New Testament was originally written in Hebrew. Constantine I requested that “Jerome (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerome)” translate the Holy Writ into Greek.

        Excerpt: Seized with a desire for a life of ascetic penance, he went for a time to the desert of Chalcis, to the southwest of Antioch, known as the Syrian Thebaid, from the number of hermits inhabiting it. During this period, he seems to have found time for study and writing. He made his first attempt to learn Hebrew under the guidance of a converted Jew; and he seems to have been in correspondence with JEWISH CHRISTIANS IN ANTIOCH (Not Gentile Christians). Around this time he had copied for him a Hebrew Gospel, of which fragments are preserved in his notes, and is known today as the Gospel of the Hebrews, and which the Nazarenes considered was the true Gospel of Matthew.[10] Jerome translated parts of this Hebrew Gospel into Greek.[11

        Go read it all. Constantine requested that Jerome translate the “writ” into Greek (it had to come out of Hebrew to start with), which Constantine later wreaked havoc on christianity, adding “pure paganism into the church (totally his influence).”

  18. mcginnis360 says:

    Not to mention, what “you all (Gentiles) deem as “christianity” was from Constantine I, who is today considered one of the top ten most vile, and evil men to walk the face of the earth. He divorced his wife, then killed her, then killed his own children. He “re-defined” what is called Christianity today into what it is. You all have fallen so far off track, its not even fathomable. He introduced paganism into christianity. It was him that permitted idolatry into the religion. It was him that started the “trinity” doctrine. It was him that requested the Hebrew texts to be translated to Greek. It was him that gave Christ the name “Iesous,” which isnt even Greek, its from Latin, which even the “translated texts from the Hebrew” werent written in Latin. NO MAN CARRIES TWO DIFFERENT AND SEPARATE NAMES IN ANY ONE LANGUAGE. Joshua does not mean “Iesous,” and “Iesous” does not mean “Joshua.”
    1. Christ spoke Hebrew/Aramaic. The apostles also spoke Hebrew/Aramaic. Not Greek. They would not have written in Greek, as the day of Pentecost, it was “Jews from every nation gathered to hear the apostles speak,” not “Gentiles from every nation.”

    “And there were dwelling at Jerusalem JEWS (they would have understood Hebrew), devout men, out of every nation under heaven.”

    “And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
    8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
    9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
    10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
    11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.”

    These were JEWS. Not Gentiles. They might have spoken “other tongues,” but they understood the Hebrew, because Peter quotes to them DIRECTLY from the Hebrew scriptures.

    “But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
    15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.”

    Peter would not have spoken/translated to them in 13 different languages. Its a proven fact, that a man can only retain up to 7 languages at any given time. Even then, he is pushing it. It would have taken more than a day to convince all of these men in 13 different languages the “Hebrew scriptures” of Joshua Christ, and it is recorded that this all happened in one day.

    Not to mention, nowhere is it written, that these apostles “wrote 13 different languages.” They only “spoke it.” There is no evidence to this date, that verifies that any of them wrote in Greek. It is only “hearsay” from the Catholic church, and scholars who were influenced by the same that it was written in Greek. Jerome would not have carried the Gospel of Matthew in “Hebrew” if it was only in Greek. And the Jews in his day, believed that it was Matthews writings. They would know more than we would, as they were closer to the times of the actual apostles. That my friend is logic (Logos) and common sense.

  19. mcginnis360 says:

    Read this link about Jerome, and if you dont see all the errors (I found over 25) in this “historical document about Jerome,” Catholicisms greatest “theologian,” which they even state “he was the original writer of the Septuagint (between 300-400ad), and he alone “rejected the Septuagint (his own translation) declaring it inaccurate,” and held to the ORIGINAL HEBREW TEXTS FROM WHICH THEY WERE TRANSLATED, stating that the Hebrew was the “only inspired text.”

    Excerpt: St. Jerome owes his place in the history of exegetical studies chiefly to his revisions and translations of the Bible. Until about 391-2, he considered the Septuagint translation as inspired. But the progress of his Hebraistic studies and his intercourse with the rabbis made him GIVE UP THAT IDEA, and he recognized as INSPIRED THE ORIGINAL TEXT ONLY (emphasis mine). It was about this period that he undertook the translation of the Old Testament from the Hebrew. But he went too far in his reaction against the ideas of his time, and is open to reproach for not having sufficiently appreciated the Septuagint (Catholics hold the Septuagint (Jeromes own writings) up as “inspired,” when he denied that it was). This latter version was made from a much older, and at times much purer, Hebrew text than the one in use at the end of the fourth century. Hence the necessity of taking the Septuagint into consideration in any attempt to restore the text of the Old Testament. With this exception we must admit the excellence of the translation (Septuagint) made by St. Jerome.

  20. mcginnis360 says:

    Jerome also carried with him a copy of the “Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.” There is no evidence supporting a “Greek version” until the fourth century.

    Jerome’s earliest translations of the Hebrew Bible were based upon Origen’s revisions (184-254 ad) of the Septuagint; however around 393 he turned to manuscripts written in the original Hebrew. Augustine (bishop of the Catholic church) argued that, by using Hebrew manuscripts, Jerome was driving a wedge between Christians of the East and West because the Greek-speaking Christians of the East (East of Israel) were using the Septuagint.

    When “ancient writers (Jewish/Christian)” speak of the “East and West,” they are speaking of Israel as the “Center.”

    “Origen” excelled in multiple branches of theological scholarship, including textual criticism, biblical interpretation, philosophical theology, preaching, and spirituality. Some of his teachings, however, quickly became controversial. Notably, he frequently referred to his hypothesis of the pre-existence of souls. As in the beginning all intelligent beings were united to God, Origen also held out the possibility, though he did not assert so definitively, that in the end all beings, perhaps even the arch-fiend Satan,[5] would be reconciled to God in what is called the apokatastasis (“restitution”). Origen’s views on the Trinity, in which he saw the Son of God as subordinate to God the Father, became controversial during the Arian controversy of the fourth century, though a subordinationist view was common among the ante-Nicene Fathers. A group who came to be known as Origenists, and who firmly believed in the preexistence of souls and the apokatastasis, were declared anathema in the 6th century. This condemnation is attributed to the Second Ecumenical Council of Constantinople, though it does not appear in the council’s official minutes.[6] Few scholars today believe that Origen should be blamed, as he commonly was in the past, for tentatively putting forward hypotheses, later judged heretical, on certain philosophical problems during a time when Christian doctrine was somewhat unclear on said problems.”

    EVERYONE in the Christian world, should deem Origin as an heretic, not for his beliefs alone, but his “beliefs influenced his translation/works.” Being the Origin(al) writer of the Septuagint.

    The Septuagint appears nowhere before these dates. Neither does any Greek text. Christ and the apostles could not have quoted the “Septuagint” since it didnt come into being until 200-254ad. For those that cant add, nor do the logic, and common sense, thats 130 years after the apostles of Christ. And no, Babylon ruled Israel until 141bc, when the Parthian Empire took over the region, and ruled until 650ad. The language of the Pathians was Assyrian, yet Parthia was adopting certain Greek cultures, which had been conquered during the “Persian Empire,” which included Rome, Britain, Israel, Babylon, Parthia, Sassanid, etc. Israel had no “specific Greek culture,” but held to Hebraic culture. There were only “certain parts of Israel that spoke the Greek tongue,” it was not “common” as some suspect. Most Hebrews during the times of Christ spoke, and wrote in Hebrew/Aramaic.

  26. Adam Renzema says:

    I would like to point out that both “mcginnis360″ and Mike Gannt seem to be adherents to heretical doctrines which are agreed to be heresy by virtually all orthodox, reformed Christian authorities.

    And the fruit of the tree is evident…

    Both of you must repent of your worldly pride & seek the full counsel of God before you deign to teach others, and in doing so lead them astray.

    In particular, Mike Gannt, I see much forbearance in your fielding of mcginnis360′s torrent of assaults on your faith, character & other beliefs. Knowing that any who confesses with his tongue and believes in his heart that Jesus is Lord will be saved, I realize that there is much room for incorrect doctrine, even heresy while remaining the possession of the Christ. So I don’t want to lump you in with mcginnis who clearly lacks the Holy Spirit & sound doctrine, and is very unlikely a son.

    I would exhort you to be very careful about making black-and-white statements about whether the Bible exhorts you to “go to church” — I can relate in part to what you’re saying, but you take it too far, to an unbiblical & unholy extreme.

    Further, “all roads lead to Jesus” is 100% false teaching, heresy, deplorable, wicked & dangerous to the church. I defy you to procure a relevant, contextual, bulletproof argument solely from the Scriptures that corroborates this view under substantially skeptical exegesis. The Christ himself said that few would enter the gates of heaven, and many the gates of hell. To take some nebulous verse out of context and use it to pervert the love of God as expressed in other, clear texts is highly suspect. You must understand that every word in the Bible is internally consistent, each doctrine coheres, and that errors are in human interpretation & translation. If that’s true, then your statement about “All roads lead to Jesus” is false, because it violates other bodies of scripture.

    You said something about the love of God being incompatible with the eternal condemnation that awaits those who refuse Christ. Do you not understand that the execution of justice is an act of love, and the only reason you’re going to heaven is because a substantially equivalent form of punishment was wreaked on the Son of Man? If you plead the blood of the Lamb, then you must pause, reflect, and examine the word blood: That blood was shed for you. Is that also incompatible with the love of God? When the Roman flagellum ripped the flesh off of the Son of Man, and he was nailed to the cross, was that incompatible with the love of God?

    Examine your heart, repent of your self as we must all, and submit your whole self to Christ.

    Adam Renzema,

    Thanks for caring enough for me to take the time to try to correct me.

    That said, I have written a book: The Biblical Case for Everyone Going to Heaven, which fully explains from the Bible why I believe what I believe. You owe it to yourself to read it before you label me as unscriptural.

    When I became a Christian, I was taught that Jesus is Lord and that the Bible is the word of God. I have been taught many other things by Christians as well, but those two truths have remained my pillars. I stand by them now…and I will to my dying breath. If you cling to these truths and really seek to live by them, you will find out that there are many other things that have been taught as scriptural that really aren’t.

  28. Ryan McGinnis says:

    To Adam, you couldnt be any father from the truth, than you are right now.

    To Mike, ALL of the “scriptural evidence” you think you have to “prove people go to heaven at death” is the twisting of scripture. There is no one single scripture in the Bible that says ANYTHING about man going to heaven, in fact states the EXACT OPPOSITE.

    I will show you only “6 verses” just to give you a taste of “real research” and advise you to go research it yourself, and stop twisting the scripture. To “state that these verses do not mean what they are saying,” is to call YAHWEH HIMSELF A LIAR. That sir, I would never do, which you are doing.

    “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto The Almighty who gave it.” Ecc 12:7

    “And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.” John 3:13

    “For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Master always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance. Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.” Acts 2:25-29

    “Ec 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.”

    “I neither learned wisdom, nor have the knowledge of the holy. Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell?” Pr 30:3-4

    • tyler says:

      Mr. McGinnis, hello. Read a few of your blogs, and of course, a few of your responses here on this blog. I tried to respond to one of your blogs, but for some reason was not able to post it.

      I had several things I wanted to comment on, as I am striving to grow in the knowledge of the one the creator sent to give us true knowledge.

      My brother calls “God” Yahweh too. I noticed you call him that and another word or two in Hebrew, then, (maybe in good conscience), condemn those who call him anything but. I know things may have got buggered with here and there, specially in the name part. Things is, If I was raised believing Rick was Dick, and I called him Dick all my life, then toward the end of my life I left my belongings to Dick, I think they would still give it to Rick, and not bicker over whether there was even a Dick to begin with. I think Rick would testify that I was referring to him, and not that I was delusional and referring to a pet ghost or something. Even if Satan (or whatever his name is in Hebrew), buggered with the spelling of the name, etc. Then I think the unman upstairs still knows what the deal is.

      Still… I believe from reading the bible, that the one the creator sent gave us a much better name to call him. And that is -Our Heavenly Father. He told the whole multitude on the Mount to call the creator Our Heavenly Father when speaking to the creator, and it astonished them. Very simply, the creator is Our Heavenly Father, not mine, or yours, but Ours. And it identifies not only the creator, but everyone around you too, as the Heavenly Father’s children. We are all children of the creator, Hebrews states it very plainly, as did the Virgin born Christ, and all of the ones that the virgin born Christ appointed to testify of him.

      That prayer, that the Christ told us to say says it all. You can get more in depth to verify these truths, but that prayer is sufficient. It even tells you where you go after the dust falls off your true self, to heaven, where your Father is, as in our Heavenly Father. Plus, that Eccl. verse above you quoted also says that the spirit returns unto the Almighty who gave it. That is what matters bro. JC said that the flesh profits nothing, it is the spirit that makes alive. We are spirit, when we go to our Father, the dust falls off, and returns to what it is, dust.

      Plus, many other verses describe how that people go to heaven in many, many places. JC confirmed it when he said to store up treasure in heaven. All the apostles confirmed it, as in to be absent from the body is to be present with the creator. Or, if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there you may be also. Pauls testimony in ! thess, 1 Cor.

      I don’t want to junk up Mike’s blog comments, but these truths are too numerous to deny. The only way someone could miss them is to allow someone else to privately interpret the scriptures for them.

      The good news is plain and simple, easy to bare. We are all children of the most high, we are all loved, and we are all going back to Pops after this journey. There is Peace on Earth and Goodwill toward mankind. God is not mad anymore, his justice has been met. Come, walk in the garden of God, eat of the tree of life is so be that you are hungry. That tree of death is sweet to look at, and in the mouth, but it’s end is bitterness and death. Please do not try to live by that knowledge of good and evil, it will eat you up. Live by the knowledge of life, all live unto our Heavenly Father.

  29. Mike Gantt says:

    Ryan McGinnis,

    The Old Testament faithful lived in hope of a resurrection to come. Jesus brought the news to the New Testament faithful that indeed the time had come for the long-hoped-for resurrection, of which Jesus Himself was the first fruits. And He said, “I go to prepare a place for you and I will come again and receive you to Myself” (John 14:2-3). Subsequently, the apostles proclaimed that what the prophets had promised on God’s behalf about resurrection was coming true. All I’m saying is that I believe them.

    Again, the purpose of my blogs is to state unequivocally that all that the Bible says is true. Jesus is Lord…and He always will be.

  30. Ryan McGinnis says:

    As I said Mike, you are taking scripture out of context. Gn 2:7, Yahweh breathed His OWN Spirit into man, man does not have a “spirit that gives life” Yahweh alone holds that power. It is the “Spirit that returns to the Father “THAT GAVE IT.” You are not your spirit.

    Secondly Tyler, “Yahweh” comes from the Hebrew root Name of “HaYaH” which means “The Existence.” HaYaH does not take away from the Name of “Yahweh,” nor vise versa, as they both mean the same thing in the Hebrew tongue. Read throughout the Bible, and you will see where Yahweh says “THIS IS HIS NAME FOREVER, which this Name in Hebrew is יהוה translated to English is “Yahweh.” The same with Yahshua (ישועה) is translated to English as “Yahshua,” never as “Jesus.” A simple study of the English language will show you that the name “Iesus” comes from the Latin, not from the Hebrew, and is not a “translated name, nor does it hold any value (it doesnt mean anything at all).It was added by Constantine in 400ad, as a “pagan name” of the sun deity Horus by Constantine who was a pagan himself.There is no evidence that Constantine EVER changed his religion, it is only “speculated by many protestants who want to hold on to the name of Iesus that he did.” In 1700, the “J” was added to the English language to replace the “I,” in the name of “Iesus,” which did not make this an “English word,” but added the “J” to an already existing Latin word. Erasmus in 1300, wrote the Textus Receptus adding the Latin name to his Greek texts. The original text (Codex Sinaiticus – text from Sinai) does not contain any such word as “Iesus” but called Him Yoda Chi, which was a Greek shortened form of the Name “Yahshua Mashiyach.” All throughout the Bible Yahweh says “To Honor, Respect, Glory, KEEP His Name Yahweh.” NOWHERE does He permit His Name to be “changed/altered” to any other name. The “changing of His Name,” was ONLY permitted by the Vatican (pagan) church, which even claim themselves “that they alone hold the authority to alte/change Yahwehs law anytime they choose.” Protestants have adopted “this idea,” and have continued to “BLASPHEME the NAME BY WHICH THEY ARE CALLED.” And Yahshua said Himself when you do this “Yahweh will not forgive this transgression.” The word “transgression” means the “act of moral sin, or the breaking of His Commandments.” The first Commandment Yahshua states Himself is “Yahweh our Almighty is ONE Almighty.” He is not a “trinity, He is not a “unit/union of other deities,” He is ONE Deity.

    Thirdly, there is not a “single scripture in the entire Bible that refers to man going to heaven,” and to claim such is an ENTIRE PERVERSION/ALTERATION/ADDING to the original texts. This also is a “blasphemy” which Yahweh said Himself “WILL NOT GO UNPUNISHED.”

    “Ex 3:15 And ‘Elohim said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, Yahweh ‘Elohim of your fathers, the ‘Elohim of Abraham, the ‘Elohim of Isaac, and the ‘Elohim of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: THIS IS MY NAME FOR EVER, and THIS IS MY MEMORIAL UNTO ALL GENERATIONS.”

    Not just the “generations of Israel,” but ALL Generations. The word “god” comes from another Hebrew word “נד” which was the “Babylonian deity of fortune (see Isaiah 65:11 – listed as troop)” and also means “a heap, or ruin” and the son of Jacob (incorrectly translated as “Gad”) was named after this deity by his mother “Leah,” who also worshiped this “pagan deity of fortune.” In Joshua 11:17, this deity is also called “Baalgad (again, incorrectly translated by the English language),” and means “lord god,” which Yahweh prophesied to Jeremiah (see Jeremiah 23:27) Israel forsook His Name to follow this deity.” In the preface of ALL English speaking Bibles it is even recorded that during the “translation process” they kept this “tradition” to keep from “speaking His True Name.” Anyone truly seeking “The Truth” will find that “lord god” replaced the Name of Our Creator with “lord god,” which is not, nor ever has been “a name of His,” but was a name of the Babylonian deity of Baal. Every Biblical scholar KNOWS THIS, but refuse to tell the people the Truth. The “willingly choose to forget His Name.”

    Fourth, in the KJV, among other translations of the English speaking Bibles, it is “incorrectly translated as “Our Heavenly Father,” when Yahshua stated Himself “He alone is the only one that had ever known Him as “Father (see Jn 8:55).” The “Spirit of Yahweh” given to us at Pentecost (which is an individual basis, it is not “since Pentecost”) is the only Spirit that cries out “Abba Father.”

    It is guys like “Mike” here that do not want you knowing the Truth, for fear that they will “lose their following.”

  31. Ryan McGinnis says:

    Fifth Tyler, Paul never said “when we leave this earthly tabernacle we go to one in the heavens.” His exact words were “We are confident, I say, and WILLING rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Master….” and nowhere in this text does he state “when we die we go to heaven,” he says “we are willing.”

    Paul’s entire ministry was based/founded upon resurrection of the dead, not “a dying and going to heaven,” which 2 Co 5:1-10, he is explaining the “heavenly tabernacle CLOTHING THIS TABERNACLE.” NOT “us shedding this tabernacle, to enter another.” To lose this “Tabernacle” you are found naked before Yahweh which is “sin.”

  32. Mike Gantt says:

    Ryan, you are completely out of step with the apostles. You keep talking about “Yahweh” but they kept talking about “Jesus.”

    I heed the apostles and follow Jesus just as they told us to do. And I urge everyone else to do the same. He is Lord!

  33. mcginnis360 says:

    That is how WE ALL KNOW YOU ARE A LIAR, a false witness. The apostles did not ever write in Latin, the RCC did. Iesus is from the Latin, and they all spoke Hebrew and would have called Him Yahshua.

  34. Mike Gantt says:

    It is true that Aramaic was the common language used in Palestine during the 1st Century, and that “Jesus” in Aramaic is “Yeshua.” In Hebrew, it is “Joshua” and in Greek it is “Iesous.” Therefore, whether we’ve said Yeshua, Joshua, Iesous, or Jesus, we’ve said the same name. Of the four, I rely on “Jesus” because I am, of course, an English speaker.

  35. Ryan McGinnis says:

    No, the Aramaic was not, it is even recorded in Acts that Yahshua spoke Hebrew, which would have been “Yahshua,” not “Babylonian Yeshua.” Secondly, “Iesus” is from the Latin, and is not English. The English just added the “J” to the name. In English His Name is “Yahshua,” In Hebrew His Name is “ישועה.” Yahshua is His Name translated to English. But if you were a true teacher, you would have known this.

  36. Mike Gantt says:

    Ryan, you are straining out gnats and swallowing camels. Whatever, the language, Jesus is Lord.

  37. Ryan McGinnis says:

    Wow! If that is not bearing false witness NOTHING IS. Way to take the scriptures out of context Mikey.

    1. Yahshua says not one “jot or tittle” shall fail from the law.

    A Jot and tittle is ONLY found in the Hebrew language, and refers to the “smallest marks” in the Hebrew texts. Not even the “smallest marks” shall fail from the law until ALL perform the law.

    2. Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
    25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
    26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

    This is speaking of those that “desire to appear clean outside” but inside they could care less about what Yahweh teaches in His Word. That is speaking against YOU Mikey.

    “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.
    28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and LAWLESSNESS!!

    Way to expose your sin to the whole world that reads your hypocrisy buddy.

  38. Ryan McGinnis says:

    But you are the Pharisee that always wants “the last word.” Have it. I am commanded to put evil men like yourself out of my presence. Have fun with your daddy the devil.

  39. tyler says:

    Ryan….really? That’s a lot of accusing, isn’t it? Present the truth as you see it (or have been taught), and let it be. The great judge will be the one passing judgment. And that is the judgment that we have to worry about, not man’s judgment. Our job is to be gentle, apt to teach, and patient.

    I did take the time to reread Galatians all the way through 2 Thess. That is 6 books, short ones, just to see what the central message was, how the creator is referred to, what our destination is, etc.

    Paul many times referenced the Creator as Our Father in every single one of those books. Was those mistranslations also? What would be the correct translation?

    Paul also states that the word of good news is the hope laid up for us in heaven – and that message is what “saves” us. In one way or another Paul mentions us going to heaven in all but one of those six books. Of course he concentrates his message on our life on earth, as that is where we are at now, and on earth is where we need help, when we all get to heaven we will be perfect.

    Paul also makes a distinction between our flesh and spirit in those books and states they are contrary one to the other. JC even told Nicodemus that you cannot even see the kingdom of God unless you realize this, much less enter into it. The kingdom of God is not heaven, it is inside you as testified by JC. The great mystery that JC revealed is Christ in you. That Christ is your spirit, the true child of the living Creator.

    Paul even says to have the mind of JC, to think this: you have the form of God, so do not think it robbery to be equal with God, but don’t take that reputation now because you are in the form of a servant, and are made in the likeness of mankind. And being found in the fashion of mankind, you should humble yourself, and become obedient unto death. (Philippians 2)

    That is why mankind comes to earth. You have eternal life like our heavenly Father, and to fully appreciate that fact and understand it, you must experience death. Realize this and become obedient unto it is what Paul is saying. JC is the record that God has given us eternal life (1 Jon 5:10-11), if you deny this record, then you are calling God a liar, and haven’t come to know life yet. But…you will brother. You too will make it into heaven. You are doing some rather peculiar things to please this Creator, and I have to commend you, you are concerned for others enough to try and persuade them to do these peculiar things too. Thank you for that brother.

    But I have to testify brother Ryan that the Creator isn’t please with you because of your works, he is pleased with you when you believe the testimony of JC his Word that he’s your Daddy, and he loves you because you are his child, not because of some flimsy works that you can make your flesh perform.

    If you continue to think that the Creator is a unfair judge that has it in for you, then you will continue to live in that damnation that you believe in, It may be that you will not accept the salvation of our heavenly Father until the day he removes you from this flesh, and then you see him as you are seen, and run into his out stretched arms and he receives you as the Son you really are.

    And still, I commend you for your concern. I believe you know we are brothers deep down, and all people are part of this great big family of Yahweh. Here on this earth, as we are learning this lesson of death, things seem to be going, well, to hell in a hand basket. But JC told us to say, “Thy will be done in Earth, as it is in Heaven”. Nothing is going awry, nothing is out of control. The Creator is the Master Teacher. We, his pupils will learn the lesson of death and life that he is teaching.

    Remember, in the Garden, the two great themes were presented. Death, and life. The bible is simply the lesson of the two. If you endure the story, or book, to the end, you will be saved. It ends really, really good. Most people, sadly, never make it out of the first theme, that of death. And the news is really bad in that part, the news is death, for everyone based on their works. If you make it out of that part, then the news is really good, for everyone, based on the grace and mercy of their heavenly Father.

    All glory goes to our heavenly Father, because nothing can overcome his love, nothing. We are truly -safe and sound.

      *[[1Jn 5:17-18]] TS1998* %v 17% All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not unto death. %v 18% We know that everyone having been born of Elohim does not sin, but the one having been born of Elohim guards himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.

        Yes, everyone that believes the truth that Elohim (JC) taught (that the Creator is our Father, we are his children, and we are spirit, not the flesh we reside in presently) does not sin by not believing those truths. Not believing those truths is the sin unto death. That is what the 1 John 5 is about, believing the Creator’s record that he gave us eternal life, and Elohim (JC) is that record, a living document.

        There are lesser sins that we commit, and have to be reminded by a brother or sister every once in awhile of what we are doing.

        But in any case, the one sinning a lesser sin, or a sin unto death, is considered a “brother”. Just because someone is ignorant of the truth that the Creator is Our heavenly Father doesn’t mean that the truth changes and all of a sudden he isn’t in the family anymore.

        The truth that JC taught, that God is our Father, that we are his children, and that we are eternal spirits, not the flesh which is only the dust of the ground, is what changes our entire lives here on this earth.

        We start treating people civilized, just as we would our own family. We start relating to the Creator in a truthful manner instead of always trying to cover up our short comings. And we know that this present time on earth is but a short trip and that we will soon be back home with the family.

        It’s pretty awesome brother. The good news really is better than anything we could have imagined.

    That is the biggest Pharisaical load of crap I have EVER heard. Yahshua abolished death, and even Paul said “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling,” and Even James and John confirmed this. Yahweh did not give a law to take it away, or you would be consumed. Yahweh changes NOT! You clearly are not a servant of Yahshua or Yahweh, or you would do what Yahshua commanded, and that was to obey the law, which even Paul states in Ephesians 2:10 are the works you are ORDERED to do, not your own works of sin that cannot save you.

    Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    Liars (that includes people that twist scripture) are not of Yahweh, and Yahshua said it Himself.

  42. Ryan McGinnis says:

    And the word “sin” means a direct rebellion (disobedience) of the Commandments, and John said right here Yahwehs people DONT break the commandments. John also states “There is *a* (not all) not unto death.

  43. Ryan McGinnis says:

    DO NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS, DO NOT TWIST THE SCRIPTURE TO FIT YOUR OPINION, let the scripture “mold you.”
