Come let us Grow Together is a weekly series that deals with the many topical categories that exist within the Word of God. The purpose of this series is to grow in wisdom, knowledge, and understanding in things pertaining to God.
Be not deceived. Doctrine is essential to Salvation. Without doctrine how do you know what you stand for or believe in? There are many deceivers going through the many denominations as well as the non-denominations of Christianity that are teaching a doctrine of no doctrine. A teaching that opens the door for everyone that believes in Christ, no matter what they do, to be promised everlasting life. This is a doctrine of devils.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their OWN LUSTS shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (2 Tim 4:3-4)
Desiring to be saved and to inherit everlasting life, but not willing to KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS of the everlasting God. “If ye love me, KEEP my commandments.” (Jn 14:15) While teaching a form of the doctrine of easy believism, they REFUSE to be obedient to the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ. “Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, MADE KNOWN to all nations FOR THE OBEDIENCE OF FAITH:” (Rm 16:25-26)
Claiming to be saved without works, while misunderstanding that to be saved through faith one must put forth WORKS OF OBEDIENCE in accordance to what one believes or their faith has become DEAD BEING ALONE. “Was not Abraham our father JUSTIFIED BY WORKS, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how FAITH WROUGHT with his WORKS, and BY WORKS was faith made perfect?” (James 2:21-22) “For as the body without the spirit is dead, SO FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD ALSO.” (James 2:26)
Refusing to follow after what the grace of God teaches, of which they claim to be saved by, they trod under foot the Son of God. “For the grace of God THAT BRINGETH SALVATION hath appeared to all men, TEACHING US that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;” (Titus 2:11-12) “Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath TRODDEN UNDER FOOT THE SON OF GOD, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and HATH DONE DESPITE unto the SPIRIT OF GRACE?” (Heb 10:29)
Turning the grace of God into LASCIVIOUSNESS and PERVERTING the gospel of Jesus Christ these ministers OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS pollute the ears of the hearers while teaching to the hearers WHAT THE HEARERS SO DESIRE TO HEAR, thus fulfilling 2 Tim 4:3-4 above which read, “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their OWN LUSTS shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (2 Tim 4:3-4)
For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ORDAINED to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into LASCIVIOUSNESS, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. (Jude 1:4)
I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: WHICH IS NOT ANOTHER; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though WE, or AN ANGEL from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, LET HIM BE ACCURSED. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, LET HIM BE ACCURSED. (Gal 1:6-9)
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if HIS MINISTERS also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to THEIR WORKS. (2 Cor 11:14-15)
LET US NOT BE of those that refuse sound doctrine but LET US BE of those who search the scriptures DAILY to see whether those things BE SO of which we hear!!!
And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto BEREA: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were MORE NOBLE than those in Thessalonica, in that they RECEIVED the word with ALL READINESS of mind, and SEARCHED the scriptures daily, WHETHER THOSE THINGS WERE SO. Therefore many of them BELIEVED; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, NOT A FEW. (Acts 17:10-12)
