A Salutary Warning

The Apostle Paul was inspired to pen the following to genuine Christians thus: “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them that cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrines you have learned; and avoid them”(Romans.16:17).

Firstly, we must remind ourselves of the doctrines we have learned. We have learned that Christ is not divided . For Paul was inspired to write: “Now I beseech, you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and the same judgment”(1 Cor.1:10). So from this and other biblical texts, we learned that the genuine people of God are united in believing and teaching the same things. For Christ is not divided, nor is God the author of confusion.

Secondly, we must now put to ourselves the question, who have been causing divisions and offences contrary to the doctrines we have learned? Well, unless we have been afflicted with supernatural blindness, it should be evident that the leaders of GCI, LCG, UCG, PCG, RCG, COG/Hulme and all the other COG groups are divided on various doctrines, and certainly do not speak the same thing.

Now Paul goes on to say: “They that are such,” that is, those who cause divisions and offences contrary to unity, “serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own bellies; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple”(Romans.17:18). Please note that Paul was inspired to write, that those who cause divisions, "serve not our Lord Jesus Christ." This post will be much too long if I list all the examples and name all the men who have caused divisions, and went off and started their own churches to serve their own bellies.

However, genuine Christians are commanded to "avoid them." So there are no genuine Christians assembling with any of these groups, else they would be disobeying God's command to "avoid them." And one cannot be a Christian, if one is disobeying the teachings of Christ.

So it follows that the people assembling with these evil men are those that Paul described as "simple." These simple-minded people and the evil men who are making merchandise of them, will be hurled into the lake of fire, where their worm dies not. What a tragedy!

No it's "True Christians". There is already a defined term. It means ones that think like me. All the rest, usually including Catholics, Mormons, Seventh Day Adventists and any other hokey version of Christianity is not.

Truly crazy.

If there are any "True Christians" out there, could you tell me what speed of broadband is going to be available in heaven. Also will I still be able to get magazine subscriptions because I'm an engineer and I be bored to tears if I didn't have anything to read.

Can I just opt out. I don't want to be around for ever.

As a christian, I really feel sorry for you Tom. You are either a real disgrace in the eyes of God and men, or really sick.

I hope for the sake of your soul it's the latter.

>>As a christian, I really feel sorry for you Tom.<<

Why are you feeling sorry for me? I thought that Christians are to love one another. Are you saying that I am not a Christian?

>>You are either a real disgrace in the eyes of God and men,<<

I will let God be the judge of whether I am a disgrace in his eyes or not, but I don't really care what men may think.

>>or really sick.<<

Sometimes days I physically feel better than other days, but as for being "really sick," I will also leave that to God, who is my healer.

So, this post confuses me. Are you basically saying it's all Martin Luther's fault and the Roman Catholic church is the only real Christian church?

tom said "I thought that Christians are to love one another"

Claiming that this blog is for true christians does not sound like love, it sounds like a judgment.

tom also said "I will let God be the judge of whether I am a disgrace in his eyes or not, but I don't really care what men may think."

only god can judge, and yet you do it so effortlessly.

tom, you are a hypocrite and a phony, much like god (god is imaginary-good luck with all that)

Ah, the headline on your blog should read - Welcome to Insanity.

There, fixed it for you.

I took Pascal's wage and won on the red.

And I'm posting anonymously because I hate stalkers.

It's harder to find someone more decieved than you.I don't think you are sick at all just deluded and badly too. In your other post you implied that you will be like Noah in that only you and your family would be saved. Come on get real. Noah was a preacher warning the people of his time of the coming judgement.Are you warning the world? You need to be very careful about your condemnation of people whom God has called and given His Spirit.

Please, if you ever get cancer, don't put that to the test. Actually go to see a doctor, in their evolution-using, genetics-knowing, godless, science-y ways. I wouldn't wish that kind of suffering on anyone, regardless of how harmful (to themselves or others) their beliefs may be.

I neither said nor implied any thing of the kind. I used Noah's example to say that very few people will be saved. Jesus also said that the gate which leads to life will only be found by the few.

If you so wish, you are free to disagree with the bible and teach that the majority will be saved.

Would you prefer me to expose myself to the destructive side effects of chemotherapy, and after it has destroyed my immune system, die of pneumonia? Thanks, but no thanks!

So instead of "True Christians(™)" it's now "genuine Christians(™)"?

I think you are quibbling about terms. Genuine is the same as true. The distinction that Jesus made is between those who obey him or do the will of his father, and those who only honour him with their lips, but their hearts are far from him.

Genuine or true Christians are those who obey God, by keeping the ten commandments and are led by his spirit.

Nominal or false Christians are those who attend church on Sunday, sing out bet laud, say amen to most things the false minister say and the rest of the week do as the please.

Something 144,000 chosen male Jewish virgins wasn't it?

Oh yeah...here it is:
"And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. . . . And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb withersoever he goeth." (Revelation 14:1-4)

The purpose of this note is to outline a plan to condemn Tom Mahon's criminal ineptitude.

Tom's views manifest themselves in two phases. Phase one: weaken our mental and moral fiber. Phase two: irrational ideas. Tom operates on an international scale to do the devil's work. It's only fitting, therefore, that we too work on an international scale, and to guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by Tom and the Devil. We must always be on guard, for the heretic is always baiting us.

Some of the people I've e-mailed too, have said that Tom and his proxies should all be put up against a wall and given traitors' justice. Without commenting on that specifically I'd merely like to point out that ever since Tom decided to reveal his opinions to anyone who's not one of his lapdogs, his consistent, unvarying line has been that he is always right.

I have the following to say. There is a difference between normal people like you and me and irresponsible showboaters such as Tom. Just don't tell Tom or he might get a clue. Right now he is just entertainment!

I was about to suggest some scriptures for you to read but changed my mind because I realize that you know the scriptures very well. The problem is your interpretation of them.What you should do is to ask God to show you how wrong you are then repent so God can give true descernment and understanding. Try to do this before Trumpets if you still celebrate the holy days
