Are You Being Deceived?
What you read below may surprise you since the Bible is very specific about changes in HIS word. There are many false prophets, preachers & clergy looking for your hard earned money and will convince you there way is the “truth” no matter what the Bible tells you. Wake up and read 1 Timothy 6:3-5.
The Bible Warns of False Prophets
Chances are pretty high that you have been deceived by a false prophet. The info below will bear this out but be sure to do your own research which may really surprise you. It did for me and Jean, and we are still finding out more surprising information every day.
Definition of deception: a: the act of causing someone to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid: the act of deceiving resorting to falsehood or deception : b: the fact or condition of being deceived.
The physical Holy Bible has been around for hundreds of years but the original disciple version has been around for thousands. This is the version that was taught by Jesus Christ to HIS disciples and they in turn taught it to everyone else who wanted the ‘truth.’
Today many claim to be “Teachers of Jesus Christ” or “Bible Truth Clergy” and even “Prosperity Preachers” although this is not what they actually call themselves. That is just what they do. They talk about how you should pray for money, things, and prosperity by praying BIG prayers. The Bible tells us to pray for spiritual guidance; not money. They call themselves pastors, ministers and of course preachers but what do they really preach? Read Matthew 24: 4-5 / Revelations 22:16-21 (continued on right at the top).
Read Galatians 1: 6-10
Then there are the clergy with their rules and many of them that don’t conform to the Bible at all and that is a huge religious group. (see religion comparisons below).
Were we fooled. ABSOLUTELY. And for a long time so don’t feel bad when you finally realize that you were fooled just to keep you in your chosen denomination, tricked to get your hard earned money and conned into believing that your denomination and NOT Jesus Christ would save you in the end.
Read Galatians 1:6-10
What do we have to gain by telling you this? Absolutely nothing. We are not trying to change your denomination (that’s between you and God) or have anything to sell (all the design are free to use as explained). We give this information freely and with the knowledge that someone reading this will realize the only true way to salvation is Jesus Christ. If we can help one we are grateful. Read 1 Timothy 4:6-16
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Denominations Deception
Do you believe in or accept the Bible? Do you want to know that everything your religious denomination (Presbyterian, Protestant, Catholic, Mormon, Jehovah Witness, Evangelical, Baptist, etc.) teaches you is scriptural doctrine as written in the Bible?
If you are waiting for being saved you would want to know that it is assured. You would also want to know that the clergy is not teaching you false doctrine and thereby successfully eliminating your chance of not going to heaven with Jesus…right?
How will you feel later; at the time of ‘Judgment’ when you find out you were really worshiping a false doctrine? Will you get a free pass. No. You will already be in the time of judgment.
Right now there is no need to defend your denomination by not reading any further or
writing something nasty in the ‘comments box’ below. I am not accusing anyone of anything. Just be honest with yourself about wanting to know the TRUTH because you are either a true believer or a part-time one and both should want only the truth.
You do your best to live a scriptural life and follow the 10 Commandments. So why not be sure you are really following them and truly pleasing God.
I think you are reading this because you are a true believer (or want to become one) and has always felt that something in church wasn’t right. We all falter and fail but we can get up and move forward with God’s Grace and scriptural knowledge and wisdom which starts with actually reading the Bible at your own pace.
So, what is this leading to? Simple. Read the 10 Commandments. That’s right; read them. Now re-read # 4.
“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.” The Bible reads “He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it”
According to the calendar which day begins the week? On a 7 day pill box which day is listed first? Sunday is the first day of the week and Saturday is the 7th.
I know it is all confusing. I grew up with Sunday as the church day and my wife did the same. We all did because that was what the church told us was correct. Don’t let any clergy fool you into thinking that ‘Jesus changed the date.’ He didn’t.
There is nothing written in the Bible to indicate any change and Jesus came to us at His Father’s direction. Not to change anything but to free us of our sins. Besides the Catholic clergy freely admit making the change even though the
Bible actually forbids any changes or alterations. See Revelation 22: 18-19.
Still not sure? That’s entirely understandable. Try this. Ask your clergy about Sunday verses Saturday and see how they respond. I used to always get a “You don’t question the Bible” or “We just do” and then brushed me off as to let me know they were the power. But for me the only power was NOT the church or the clergy. Not even the Pope, but Jesus Christ who will judge us all. The church or clergy have no such power so don’t be conned or quilted into accepting unless you read it in the Bible to back up any claims including mine here.
So, does this mean you are honoring the 4th Commandment by going to or celebrating the Sabbath on Sunday? After what you just read…you decide. Still not sure? Here are a few verses that tell you about the Sabbath: Exodus 20:8 – Exodus 31:13 – Mark 2:27.

Scriptural Questions That Will Surprise You
Do You Know How To Be Saved?
Good things definitely count but it’s not the way..
This is another great way of keeping your faith strong but alas not the way.
Nope. The church is something we created…not God. You can pray or read your Bible anywhere.
Absolutely! The bible tells us to accept HIM is to have everlasting life. Romans 10:13
What's Holding You Back From Reading The Bible?
That’s Great! Please pass on the knowledge you have learned to others so they can receive that same wisdom you now posses.
That’s understandable. Especially today with all the running around but even 10 minutes can make a great difference in your life. Try it.
That’s terrific. But did you know that the most important Bible verses are NOT in sermons but hidden inside the Bible?
That’s OK. We all have free-will and we pray for everyone’s well being including yours. But in case you are curious, borrow a Bible and try reading:
Some More Biblical Surprises
If You Knew...
If you knew that the church altered what you learn from the Holy Bible would it matter to you? It should if you are waiting and praying for salvation. Why? Because most christian denominations are not telling you what was altered from the Holy Bible, and it is a lot.
But we want you to make your own decisions so we have links to the information. and before you decide these articles have proof with the Holy Bible links that prove the accusation.
So why are we doing this? Because we want our fellow faithful to get the right information from the Holy Bible and not something from a denominations agenda.
The main group for altering God’s word is the Catholic church. Don’t get offended. My wife is Catholic and is going through a lot of reflection and thinking. But don’t take my word read this site: Catholic Church False Doctrines (end-times-prophecy.org)
Now the Catholic’s are not alone, and many other Christian denominations followed some of the Catholic teaching, and the big one is the Sabbath.
There is a ton of false information about the Sabbath but the 10 Commandments says it all and is FOR EVERYONE both Jew & Gentile. Unless of course, you don’t accept any of them.
Read the 10 Commandments if you are not sure then you can decide for yourself. Besides you have to answer to HIM for yourself. I already have my answer.
So before you send us any not nice rants or comments do you research then come back to discuss it, and I will oblige…happily.
“Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Are You Being Fooled?
Do you believe everything you hear from preachers and clergy and accept it as fact? Do you accept it because they are “men of the cloth”? Do you accept it because they went to seminary or Holy Bible college and know it all?
I remember asking different denominational (Presbyterian, Catholic, Protestant and even Jewish) clergy questions about the Holy Bible and getting responses like “We don’t question the Bible” or “See you in church on Sunday,” and other evading answers.
I quickly learned that something was wrong when Biblical questions are not being answered even with a “Gee…I don’t know.” They don’t want you asking questions because much of what they are teaching is not from the Holy Bible.
So when you listen to a preacher on-line or in person be sure you understand what he/she is saying and don’t immediately accept it.
Remember, Jesus was always questioned and HE always answered. And so should the clergy that is supposedly here to teach. Don’t be intimidated by clergy dress or their claimed status above Jesus Christ because NO ONE is!
How Many Bibles?
This may come as a shock to you as it did for me. Way too many. It seems that each denomination has their own and some even have a biblical handbook (a version of the Holy Bible with a lot of added do’s and don’ts.
I have tried searching for the most accurate to the original dead sea scrolls and have gone through a lot of research to do some comparisons. I found that the less altered version is the Geneva Bible which was brought over to America by the Pilgrims (a devout Protestant sect) around 1400.
The Geneva Bible has been reprinted exactly as it was originally but the hard to understand words have been changed to today’s verbiage.
This is NOT an endorsement for the Geneva Bible . Just letting you know if you are looking for a more accurate biblical version than the KJV.
Do you own research (there is a ton of it on-line) if you are interested in learning more or contact us with your questions in the form below.
