WHAT WE BELIEVE
STATEMENT OF FAITH
*) GOD: There is one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and these three are one. They are all co-equal within the Godhead. They are all distinguishable, eternal, all uncreated. The Word, that is Jesus, created the universe with God the Father and the Holy Spirit.
*) JESUS CHRIST: Jesus is God the Son, and is fully God and fully man forever, yet without sin, the spotless sacrifice to take away the sin of the world. That Christ was God manifest in the flesh shows perhaps more than any other fact that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are clearly distinguishable within the Godhead, yet one God in deity, Spirit and love. This is included here as the definition of a resurrection is broken if we say Jesus died fully God and fully man, but was resurrected fully God somehow losing his humanity.
*) THE HOLY SPIRIT: The Holy Spirit is not a force, or a thing, he is not neuter or a separate God. He is not God the Father or Jesus, he can be clearly distinguished from them but is one with them in the Godhead. He did not merely spectate on the creation of the universe but actually created the universe, and so it is written “let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” The Holy Spirit is called The Spirit of God for good reason, he is God himself and is referred to as He. He is our companion and Comforter, our guide, helper and our teacher.
*) THE “JESUS SAVES” GOSPEL: jesusandbible.com preaches the “Jesus Saves” gospel, that is: Christ crucified, Christ buried, Christ resurrected. This was preached first by Jesus (Luke 24:44-48) and then by the disciples (1 Cor 15:1-4). Salvation is entirely by grace through faith. In Christ alone our hope and salvation is found. John 3:16.
+ salvation by works is heresy (Eph 2:8-9, Rom 11:6), and notice the "salvation plus human works heresy" becomes two-fold more heretical when sacerdotalism is added, that is salvation by works of priestcraft, that bring a second person into your salvation (the priest) adding works to salvation.
*) THE BIBLE: God has preserved every Word of God on earth, word for word according to his promise in Matthew 4:4.
notes (under construction)
and that the Hebrew old testament and Greek new testament are His Word. The correct type of Greek manuscripts are of the Textus Receptus kind, and the corrupted Greek is the Alexandrian Text, that omits huge amounts of scripture that is found in the correct Greek. The King James Bible for this, and other reasons, is vastly superior to the NIV, New World Translation, and other corrupted modern bibles.
ETERNAL PARADISE AND ETERNAL HELL: Jesus saved us by his death and resurrection from everlasting Hell (not from annihilation), if we truly believe in him, and made the way open for us to inherit eternal Paradise. Those who refuse Christ as Saviour will be lost in eternal Hell.
THE RAPTURE: The doctrine that the Rapture is early, before the appearance of the Beast, and the 666 mark, is a dangerous false doctrine, making people complacent and unprepared for the persecution that lies ahead (especially if you add the totally false gospel that the Holy Spirit is then taken from the Earth, and a new gospel is preached: namely Rev 14:6-7). There is a Rapture but it is late.
A NEW COVENANT & NEW LAW: Jesus brought a new and better covenant, with different law, sealed by the blood of his crucifixion. The teachings of Jesus (quote "these sayings of mine"), were self evidently not the same as the Mosaic Law, and anyone ignoring them builds their house on sand. His new teachings are called “The Law of Christ” (Gal 6:2). Inevitable some of the new covenant law is similar to the old covenant law. It must be understood that the law in different covenants has been different, to understand the Word of God clearly.
MARRIAGE: When two Christians marry they enter into a life long covenant that not even adultery can break. It is quite easy to prove that the meaning of the Greek word “porneia” (in context) in Matthew 19:9 and Matthew 5:32 simply cannot mean “marital unfaithfulness” as the only way the guilty party “committeth adultery” is if God sees the first marriage as still in tact. That is despite the divorce paperwork, the remarriage paperwork, and the act of adultery. This means the innocent party is as unable to remarry as the guilty. The word means "fornication", as the KJV bible correctly translates it in context, and is a directive by Jesus to retain virginity before marriage, and allows for divorce and remarriage if a believer finds out (for instance) his new wife has lied about her virginity, and it is discoveed by him before consummation.
WAR: Jesus did not teach the same thing as old testament law concerning war. In the teachings of Jesus no Christian, or believer, should ever kill another person. It is a sin worthy of damnation to unrepentantly kill in wars. It is a very serious heresy to justify believers killing in wars.
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT: It is a sin to kill another person in an act of capital punishment. The law of “a life for a life” is not part of the teachings of Jesus in the new covenant, but, contrariwise, in John 8 Jesus expressly forbad believers to take part in capital punishment.
FREE WILL: In order to be saved a person must believe in Jesus, and "to believe in him" is an act of free will. A man can only be saved if God the Father draws him, and the Holy Spirit leads him toward salvation, but accepting Christ is an act of free will. God wants all people to be saved, but those who resist his call will be lost. The doctrine of Calvinism, that God never draws the lost to salvation, is entirely false, as the bible does not say “for God so loved the Calvinists........” it says “for God so loved the world.......”.
IDOLS: The 2nd Commandment in the old Ten Commandments did not only forbid worshipping images, statues, similitudes and likenesses of God or a god, but also forbad making them, and the Law of Jesus also forbids these things (1 John 5:21, Rev 9:20) . It is therefore sinful to make statues, carvings, drawings, paintings or other images of God or a god, and such should not be practiced. Also making images of the devil or demons is sinful, as Satan is a false god called "the god of this world" (2 Cor 4:4) and all the other demons who fell became the pagan gods and idols, identified clearly as devils (Deut 32:17, Psalm 96:5, Psalm 106:37, Leviticus 17:7, Revelation 9:20) Ordinary images that are not pictures of God or a god are allowable if reasonable, like photos of your family, or ordinary pictures in an encyclopaedia or newspaper. However making icons of saints and "venerating them" though arguably not idolatry, is a man made tradition of little value considering the downside of links to justifying idolatry.
HOMOSEXUALITY: Even though homosexuality has been made legal under secular law in many countries, that does not mean it has been made "holy" or "spiritual" or "biblical". In secular law in many countries adultery and fornication are both legal, but a pastor or an elder in a church who is committing adultery (by second marriage for instance) is forbidden from the ministry, as are those who fornicate, therefore homosexuals are not allowed in the ministry according to the scriptures, as being “legal” in secular law and being “spiritual” are two different issues. The born again nature is never homosexual.
BAPTISM BY FULL IMMERSION: It is included in God’s law that a person should be baptized after believing in Jesus. The practice of Catholic infant sprinkling (or orthodox triple immersion of babies) is therefore doctrinal error, as the scriptures say “believe and be baptized”. Baptism however is not necessary for salvation, that is to say that the blind pastors and false shepherds who vainly think they have "completed your salvation” by baptizing you by full immersion are teaching a false “priestcraft gospel” (sacerdotalism), for in Christ alone salvation is found (I Cor 1:17). In Greek John 3:5 says "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water EVEN (kai) of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God". Even if you deny this Greek interpretation that is certainly the meaning as is seen irrefutably in the next chapter "the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life." that is rebirth by the Water of the Spirit of God. John 4:14. Baptism does not save as baptism is not Jesus. Adding baptism to the gospel that saves is therefore a grave error that is actually anathema (Gal 1:6-9)
THE SABBATH: Sunday (the Lord's Day - Resurrection Day) was never made into a sabbath. It is a special day but not a sabbath. The old sabbath was a distinguishing feature of the old covenant (and will be forever a distinguishing feature of that old dead covenant) and so is no more the law of God. Sunday or the first day of the week was not made into a sabbath, but was used as a worship day. The teaching of the new covenant concerning the sabbath is - that you may keep a day of rest if you choose to, but that you should not condemn others who do not keep your chosen rest period, or who chose to keep no rest day at all. However many people will benefit from having a rest and a quiet time between themselves and God each week, without fretting about condemnation when also deciding to do a few chores if they care to. I think calling such rest times a sabbath can be misleading.
SPEAKING IN TONGUES:
more to follow.........
sorry for the delay
It is the doctrinal stand of biblecool.com, and associated websites (which will be published soon - be the Good Lord willing), that the church is not heading for apostasy, it is in apostasy already! And that this apostasy will likely get worse and worse progressively.
The described apostasy is because of the following heresies and heart conditions:
*) Fake bibles. 2) Misunderstanding the covenants. 3) False gospels. 4) Adultery by justifying unbiblical divorce. 5) War and capital punishment. 6) Tribalism. 7) The Pre Trib Rapture theory 8) Insincerity.
*) FAKE BIBLES. The true Greek new testament of the King James Version of the bible has been replaced in fake modern bibles like the NIV and the ESV with a false Greek, known as the Alexandrian Text. These fake bibles have approximately 7 chapters of scripture missing from their bogus new testament Alexandrian Greek, and change the bible well over 50,000 times, and one of the manuscripts misses out the name of Jesus completely! The Christians in many churches have been so spiritually weakened by these fake bibles that even when they find out the massive number of omissions and changes they do not seem to care, and have no idea of the Faith of people like William Tyndale, John Rogers, John Bunyan, John Frith, Joan Waste and Ann Askew, all of whom would have died before they would discard even one single word of the Word of God!
*) NEW LAW IN A NEW COVENANT
There is now a NEW and BETTER covenant with NEW law. The born again experience is one of the better promises in this new covenant, empowering us to keep the new none violent way. That there is NEW law, the Law of Christ, not the law of Moses, is plain: Matthew 7:26, Matthew 28:20, John 13:34, Luke 22:20, Acts 1:2, Gal 6:2, Romans 8:2, Col 2:14, James 2:8, 2 Cor 3: 11&14, Hebrews 8:13. etc. Most people have realised Jesus brought new teachings in this covenant, but do not realise just how different his teachings are about war and capital punishment.
*) FALSE GOSELS. T
*) ADULTEROUS SECOND MARRIAGE. Many of the modern version of the bible have changed the words of Jesus about the only reason for divorce and remarriage. In the King James Bible (and many other versions) it says “except it be for fornication” (Matthew 5:32) but the modern versions of the bible have often variously changed this to other phrases such as “sexual immorality” (NIV & ESV) “unless she has been unfaithful” (NLT) “unfaithfulness“ (GWT). This CHANGING OF THE BIBLE has given rise to a tidal wave, or an epidemic, of adulterous second marriages, as modern Christians are taught by false pastors that Jesus taught that second marriage is allowed for adultery.
It is in fact impossible that the word “porneia” in Matthew 5:32 and Matthew 19:9 means “post marital adultery” of any kind. This is quite simple to prove, as on both occasions Jesus said that if a person divorces (thus has all the legal divorce paperwork) and remarries (thus has all the legal second marriage paperwork) he is committing adultery! And this continual adultery is also referred to in Romans 7:1-4. The only way you can commit adultery is if you are still married in the eyes of God to your first partner!!! THUS PROVING ADULTERY DID NOT BREAK THE MARRIAGE BOND! In both the gospels of Mark and Luke Jesus emphatically states you cannot divorce and remarry, and by their shallow interpretation of the Matthean Clause modern pastors are making a mockery of the teachings of Jesus in the other two gospels, and many other places (eg. 1 Cor 7: 10-11)
If the guilty party is committing ADULTERY in his second marriage, he can only do that if he is STILL MARRIED in God's eyes to his first partner, and therefore the innocent party is as unable to remarry as the guilty party is!

*) MURDER. Believe it or not false modern bibles have been deliberately altered by the devil to miss out large numbers of bible verses that show Jesus taught a dramatically different message than the former way of old testament law, the way of Love and Peace, not guns, bombs and war.
There simply is no record in the new testament of a single Christian who fought the Romans like Joshua, David, Gideon, Jonathan or Samson would have done. That is a very conspicuous change in strategy by God. BUT there is LOTS of evidence that early believers were killed without offering violent retaliation, such as Christians being thrown to the lions. In the lead up to Armageddon the world is full of violent cults and false churches disobeying the NEW teachings of Jesus forbidding killing. According to Jesus "no flesh would be saved" in these End Time wars (Matt 24). It is only Jesus returning that stops the planet's complete destruction! GOD WILL DESTROY THOSE WHO DESTROY THE EARTH! (Rev 11:18)
Those who believe Jesus taught war and capital punishment are following the way of Constantine not Jesus. It was largely him who corrupted peoples mind’s into believing Christians can kill in wars with his violent beliefs and false revelations, so those who followed him effectively ceased to be Christian if they ever were.
The phoney Greek of modern bibles miss out all, or large amounts of, the following bible verses (and many more): sit down and compare what the KJV version says, then look at the NIV fake bible:
Matthew 5:44, John 8:1-12 (see John 8:7), Luke 9:54-56, Acts 10: 6, Mark 11:26, Mark 14:24, Luke 4:4, Luke 23:17, John 5:16, John 8:59, Matthew 5:27, Acts 7:37, Acts 24:6-8, Acts 25:16, Romans 8:1, Romans 10:15, Ephesians 5:14, Ephesians 5:21, Philippians 2:15, Colossians 3:6, 1 Thessalonians 2:15, 1 Thessalonians 4:2, 1 Timothy 1:9, Titus 1:4, Titus 3:2, Titus 3:4, Hebrews 2:8, Hebrews 12:20, James 5:6, 1 Pet 2:14, 1 John 3:14, 2 John 1:4, 2 John 1:9, Revelation 13:10.
The absurd view of violent believers is they ask you to believe John 8:1-12 (where Jesus gives new law never to use capital punishment) was a made up story, falsely inserted into the bible, and somehow accepted by bible copyists therein after as scripture! I think we can safely assume that the woman taken in adultery, whose life Jesus spared with his new law never to execute anyone, later went on to be saved and will make it to Paradise, whereas the Pharisees who idolatrously clung to the old law (plus their hypocrisies and traditions) were damned.
You may ask: “There are plenty of other pacifist verses left in the new testament. Why didn’t these believers in violence remove ALL the pacifist verses?” The answer is it would be too obvious, but it is quite obvious the VAST number of pacifist scriptures removed from the new testament involves some kind of conspiracy to hide the none violent teachings of Jesus. The God blessed King James version omits none of those verses, it is the phoney NIV and other corrupted modern bibles that Do this. Another proof is one of the 3 manuscripts in the Alexandrian Text misses out the name of JESUS completely from the new testament, and is therefore written in shorthand, and so it cannot be a word for word preserved manuscript (see Matt 4:4)! WHO IS IT THAT IS AFRAID OF JESUS NAME!!!
Jesus said in his pacifist chapter of John 8, QUOTE: “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.” John 8:44. So..... were all these verses successfully inserted into the bible by a group of non violent believers? Or was the devil, the murderer and liar from the beginning, responsible for removing and corrupting them? Do you believe those verses found in the King James Bible are real or false?
The Reformation was never properly completed in many churches. Only a comparatively small number of believers throughout history have ever preached the truth about what Jesus taught about war and capital punishment. These are the “little flock” of Christ, who neither teach murder, nor practice it. It is my belief that Jesus taught that killing in wars, capital punishment, abortion and even pre planned self defence with a gun in our present day society are all now murder according to God’s new covenant law.
THE PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE THEORy:
Breaking fellowship just because someone makes the mistake of saying there is an early Rapture, rather than the true late Rapture, is not appropriate, especially with new believers.
However believing the error that the Rapture of believers happens before the tribulation period in the Book Of Revelation can lead to deadly traps which need to be avoided. This is because accepting the mark of the beast is one of the most terrible sins imaginable, with a quite staggeringly serious consequences (Rev 14:9-12)
1)One such trap is thinking that when the mark of the beast arrives it cannot be the predicted mark, because believers “are” supposedly raptured before that happens, so this must be some other mark and so is “safe” to allow. Obviously receiving the mark in this way iwould be a catastrophic blunder.
2) But if people go further than just saying ”the Rapture is early” and start adding some of the heretical and frankly absurd errors that are added to this theory of an early Rapture breaking fellowship may well be appropriate with such people. Some of these VERY heretical statements are:
a)After the early Rapture (before the mark of the beast) the Holy Spirit is taken away and so the gospel of salvation (Luke 24:44-48 & 1 Cor 15: 1-4) is no longer able to be believed. A grave error.
b)People will be “kept safe” (not saved) to dwell in the Millennium Kingdom who believe the so called “new (replacement) gospel” of Revelation 14:6-7 AND who do not break Revelation 14:9-11. This is a mega serious false doctrine as the gospel Jesus preached is eternal (Hebrews 13:20) and must be believed now, later, and even throughout the Millennium Kingdom, for salvation.
c)The early Rapture theory also has two resurrections of people who dwell in the Millennium.
d)The early Rapture theory also has various absurd statements which vary as there are several ways of twisting and turning to try to avoid its contradictory theology, that lacks spiritual common sense.
*) TRIBALISM. The definition of tribalism is: “the state or fact of being organized in a tribe or tribes : black tribalism became the excuse for creating ethnic homelands.
•chiefly derogatory the behaviour and attitudes that stem from strong loyalty to one's own tribe or social group : an ethnic group demanding the paraphernalia of campus tribalism.” OED.
It is possible that tribalism is the most deadly trap on Earth! Destroying more souls than any other force at work in the world today. Once people are deceived into a false religion, cult, sect or church, the process then begins of cementing the sureness of their eternal damnation, by warming them into “the religious tribe” they are now committed to. Once this process of tribalism is completed very few people have the spiritual manhood or womanhood to escape this force at work on their hearts, as even if they pull clear of the (as it were) gravitational pull of one tribe, they now lust and thirst to have the same feeling of belonging in another. The drawing power is extra specially powerful and destructive on people indoctrinated in their childhood and youth into a religion, where the false teachings are accepted as truth almost in the same way as the times table they were taught.
The almost Freemasonry type of benefits of belonging to a religious tribe, the comradeship, perks, contacts and feeling of belonging keep most people away of the spirit of “valiant for the truth” present in the martyrs who contended earnestly for the Faith, and were slain in the Reformation and the very early church. Biblecool.com aims to expose this deadly force of destruction and to help people toward walking in “spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ”. Eph 1:3
