Willful Ignorance Is Rebellion – Especially In The Pulpit Of Christian Churches

My family and I went to a typical “Christian” church this past Sun day, (linked to pagan origins of the whole “Sun Day idolatry) and I saw several people there that I am acquainted with.  It was good to see them.  The Pastor there is also an acquaintance, and I have always liked him quite a bit as a person.  Before I was summoned by the Holy Spirit to Torah, I even loved his preaching 🙂

He preached a sermon that was remarkable for its fantasy-weaving attributes, especially for the statement he made near the end, when he said “The love of God (he means Yahuah, not Moloch or ISIS, or Baphomet, etc) is ‘”unconditional”, and that there are no “performance requirements” from the God he promotes.

Here is the audio excerpt of him making the statement.

The comment in discussion is at 4:45 (this excerpt is from a 45-minute story-time/sermon), but listening from the beginning will give you a better feel for this Pastors heart.  He clearly adores his god, but bought the kool-aide of his predecessors who falsely teach the “grace” doctrine, a working of error that is killing the church.

“This relationship with god is in no way performance based.”

This Pastors statements, obviously false, made my ears perk up.  I immediately opened my notebook and penned some notes, and explained the Pastors blatant error to my oldest, first-born son.  Our first-born sons are the exclusive property of Yahuah, in case you do not know, and we are to teach them in all Truth and Wisdom, as they are called to serve Yahuah.

Our relationship with Yahuah (my ‘god’ has a name) is entirely “performance based”.  Yahusha HIMSELF tells us today that only if we keep his commands will He love us, and that because He keeps Yahuah’s commands, Yahuah continues to love Him.

John 15:10  “If you keep My commandments you will continue in My love, as I have kept My Father’s commandments and continue in His love. 

Please take a word of advice from me – Never, ever, ever, never get your understanding from the teaching of other men.  Men are sinners.  Men violate the commands of Yahuah continually.  Men are trapped in suits of flesh, wherein resides “sin”, or the constant desire to disobey Yahuah.

Never, ever, never take my word for anything.  NEVER.

Always look to the Word yourself, and NEVER ADD TO OR TAKE FROM the Word.  Just read it, pray for understanding, and ACCEPT the TRUTH.

It is that simple.

So when this Christian Pastor said, erroneously, that his gods’ love is unconditional, I had to immediately review the statement directly from the mouth of the “Jesus” he claims to worship.

The scriptures literally leap off the pages, scriptures that obviously tell us that Yahuah loves only those who obey His commands.  Yahuah’s love is exceptionally conditional.

Matthew 7:21-23  “Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter into the kingdom of Heaven, but the ones who do the will of My Father in Heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name do many works of power? And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; “depart from Me, those working lawlessness!”

So you see that?  Lawlessness is disobedience to His Laws, or commandsObedience is REQUIRED.  That, dear Pastor, is “performance”.  No performance? No heaven.

“Strait is the gate, and narrow is the Way (caps mine-jd) that leads unto Life, and few are they who find it. “

Pastor, do you even know what the Way is? Have you no idea of the damage you do to people who expect wisdom from you?  How do you kick against the goads, Pastor?

“Unconditional love”, Pastor?  Do you read the Word, or do you get your teaching from men?

John 15:10  “If you keep My commandments you will continue in My love, as I have kept My Father’s commandments and continue in His love. 

Again…”as I have kept My Father’s commandments and continue in His love.”

Do you understand what Yahusha is saying, Pastor?

Yahusha tells us that His Father loves Him specifically because He obeys the commands of His Father, you know, “performance requirements”.  Are “christians” better than Yahusha, and free to do as they please, ignoring the commands of Yahuah that His Son Himself had to obey every moment of His life on earth?

“Greater love than this has no one, that anyone should lay down his soul for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. 

So there is, again from the MOUTH of Yahusha, that we are ONLY His friends IF we obey His commands. Performance requirements that, per your own mouth, you teach do not exist.

Stop teaching error.  Stop reading books by other men, and stop teaching what you read in those ignorant, dead books.  Teach the words from the mouth of Yahuah.  If He is your “god”, why would you ever take sustenance from any other source?

The “unconditional love” doctrine is a lie, as any child can read and understand the very Words of Alahim Himself.  It is impossible to accidentally misinterpret “You are my friends IF you do whatever I command you.” as ‘unconditional‘.  Any suggestion that we are not required to obey the commands of Yahuah in order to obtain life is willful disobedience, rebellion and lawlessness.

Note that Yahusha continually states that we are required to obey His commands, that He only does the Will of His Father, that if we love Him we will keep His commands, and that if we keep the commands then (and only then) Yahuah will love us.  Yahuah does not love those in rebellion, practicing lawlessness, disobeying and ignoring His commands.  We are absolutely required to study and implement His commands.  He tells us so Himself.

John 14:21-24 “He who has my commandments with him (studies and guards them in his heart-jd) and obeys them, he is the one who loves me; he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him, and reveal myself to him.

[Please focus now – one who guards the commands of Yahusha in his heart is one who actually loves Yahusha, and ONLY those who love Yahusha by guarding His commands are subsequently loved by Yahuah.  These are HIS WORDS, not mine.-jd]

Judas (not of Iscariot) said to him, “My Lord, why is it that you will reveal yourself to us, and not to the world? Yahusha answered and said to him, “He who loves me, keeps my word; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make a place of abode with him. But he who does not love me, does not keep my word; and this word which you hear, is not mine own, but the Father’s, who sent me.

“…but the Fathers, who sent me.”

And what “Word” from Father Yahuah might that be?

A fine place to begin is right here…

HaDebarim’ – Hebrew for the biblical scroll titled “The Words…”

Is it clear to you now, dear reader, that we are to know and obey the commands of Yahusha, who only does the Will of Yahuah, and that only if we obey the commands of Yahuah will He love us?

Did You Not Receive The Love of The Truth?

If you do not crave the Truth, you truly are in the worst possible trouble.

  1. Did you manage to have the opportunity to speak to the pastor?
    And yes, it is so very sad that most people do not KNOW the God that they preach….or rather the God that they think they are preaching.
    Another great article Jerry, stay strong!

    1. Thank you for the kind words, Kate. Yes, I spoke to the pastor two weeks before this particular sermon. When he preached the “no performance requirements” sermon, I was sitting on the front row, directly in front of his he and his wife. I have known him for years and really love the guy, but am stunned at his lack of understanding of very basic scripture. He also heads a very large “christian” camp. We all struggle against the lies of Satan, and they are everywhere. But the pressure of conformity is the worst obstacle we face. We are squeezed on all sides to conform to the lies, and it requires tremendous strength of will to remain on the strait and narrow path, Kate. That is why so few find it, and why most people will burn.

      The struggle is our primary mission on earth, Kate. Seeking and knowing Truth is what He desires from us, and that is more important than friends, family, wealth and all things. Guarding His commands – that is our mission.

      Incidentally Kate, I have many regular site visitors from Australia. I have not checked, but it is at least 30 percent of the total, which speaks very well of Aussies. People are listening to you, Kate. You are moving forward the Truth. I’m glad to have you as a friend. I have few.
