"Christian Beliefs"

Can we believe false doctrines and still expect to obtain Salvation?

Matt 24:4-5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. (KJV)

This statement is made by Jesus and can be interpreted as meaning "For many shall come in my name, saying, "Jesus is the" Christ; and shall deceive many.

Matt 7:21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (KJV)

This statement is made in reference to the church.  It is church members and leaders who have professed to believe in Christ and have prophesied, cast out devils and done many wonderful works.  How sad after living a life of dedication to what we believe as being the truth, to come to the judgement day and find that we have been following lies.

There are many doctrines that are taught today which will in time be proven to be doctrines of the doctrines of the devil.  Yes, it is true that simply believing in a false doctrine will not cause you to loose your salvation, but the scriptures teach that the vast majority of those who claim to be Christian will choose the broad path that leads to destruction and only few will choose the straight and narrow path that leads to eternal life.  I simply ask you to re-evaluate your beliefs on these subjects and see if the scriptures teach these things.

The scriptures do not teach "Once Saved Always Saved"!

Satan would like for you to believe this doctrine so that you will not work very hard to lay up treasures in heaven.

The scriptures do not teach the "Rapture"!

Satan would like for you to believe this doctrine so that you will be disheartened when the trials and tribulations come knocking at your door.

The scriptures do not teach that we are going to "Heaven"!

When we are caught up to meet Christ in the air, we will then come with Christ back to the earth and work for Him as He sets up His kingdom here on the earth.  And so shall we ever be with the Lord, in His kingdom, here on earth, where we will walk the streets of gold in the city of New Jerusalem, that He will bring down from Heaven, with Him.
