Christian's Ignorance of Discerning of Spirits


Jesus spoke a powerful Truth to the twisted spiritual/political leadership of Israel, who killed him, the firstborn son of the God, in the name of the God:


John 8:42 (LIT/UBS4) The (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) enunciated (eipen) to them (autois), “If (ei) the (ho) God (theos) was being (ēn) [the] Father (patēr) of you (humōn), perhaps (an) you would be loving (ēgapate) me (eme), because (gar) I (egō) came out (exēlthon) out (ek) of the (tou) God (theou), and (kai) I arrive (hēkō)


Because (gar) but absolutely not (oude) from (ap’) of myself (emautou) have I come (elēlutha)!


BUT (all’), that one (ekeinos) sent (apesteilen) me (me)!


John 8:43 (LIT/UBS4) Through (dia) [the sake] of what (ti) do you absolutely not know (ou ginōskete) the (tēn) speech (lalian), the (tēn) [speech] of me (mou)!?  


[Is] [it, AE] because (hoti) you can absolutely not inherently power yourselves (ou dunasthe) to hear (akouein) the (ton) Word (logon), the one (ton) of me (emon)!?


John 8:44 (LIT/UBS4) You (humeis) are (este) out (ek) of the (tou) father (patros) [of you], the (tou) diabolical one (diabolou);


and (kai) you desire (thelete) to do (poiein) the (tas) lusts (epithumias) of the (tou) father (patros) of you (humōn)!


That one (ekeinos) was being (ēn) [a] mortal-killer (anthrōpoktonos) from (ap’) [the] beginning (archēs).


And (kai) he has absolutely not been standing (ouk estēken) in (en) the (tē) Truth (alētheia), because (hoti) Truth (alētheia) is (estin) absolutely not (ouk) in (en) him (autō)!  

When perhaps (hotan) he may speak (lalē) the (to) falsehood (pseudos), he speaks (lalei) out (ek) the things (tōn) of his own (idiōn);


because (hoti) he is (estin) [a] false one (pseustēs), and (kai) the (ho) father (patēr) of it (autou)!


This is how the knowledge of lying came into the world, because the devil taught it to mortalkind, and now many of them are masters of how to use lies.


This was the reason why all Israel, corporately, rejected Jesus Christ as its own promised redeemer, because its religious leaders, corporately, were constantly lying about Jesus Christ, which leaders finally managed to have Jesus killed.  Now, are you so naive to believe that this same kind of spiritual treachery isn't still going on in the world today, especially in so-called Christianity?  Why did Jesus teach that the ageless fire has been made ready for the diabolical one and the messengers (demon spirits) of him (Mat. 25:41)?  What do you suppose the diabolical one and his messengers have been, and still are, doing to earn such a reward (Mat. 7:15-16)?


The religious leaders in Jesus' time on earth taught the people fiction about the coming messiah, instead of what the prophets wrote about him, about what he would do, and how through what he would do he could be recognized as the promised messiah.  Although they, and all of the people, could see the specific signs, miracles and wonders that he did among them, the religious leaders kept on saying Jesus was not the promised messiah, and they threatened anyone who would speak in his name about him.  They adamantly declared that Jesus was absolutely not the promised coming messiah, which statement was a lie from the devil himself.  And almost all of the Judean religious leaders believed the devil's lie.  What lie about Jesus Christ does the devil have almost everyone believing now?  Isn't it the lie that Jesus Christ is the one true God almighty, himself?


2 Cor. 11:13 (LIT/UBS4) Because (gar) the ones (hoi) like these (toioutoi) are false apostles (pseudapostoloi), beguiling (dolioi) workers (ergatai), transforming themselves (metaschēmatizomenoi) into (eis) apostles (apostolous) of Christ (Christou).


2 Cor. 11:14 (LIT/UBS4) And (kai) [it, AE] [is] absolutely not (ou) [an] amazement (thauma)!  


Because (gar) the (ho) Satan (Satanas) himself (autos) transforms himself (metaschēmatizetai) into (eis) [a] messenger (angelon) of light (phōtos)!


2 Cor. 11:15 (LIT/UBS4) Therefore (oun), [it, AE] [is] absolutely no (ou) great thing (mega) if (ei) the (hoi) ministers (diakonoi) also (kai) of him (autou) transform themselves (metaschēmatizontai) as (hōs) [being] ministers (diakonoi) of righteousness (dikaiosunēs);


the (to) completion (telos) of whom (hōn) shall cause itself to be (estai) down according to (kata) the (ta) works (erga) of them (autōn)


Two rhetorical questions: Do you believe the devil and his little demon spirits are working in "Christianity" today (2 Cor. 11:13-15; 1 Pet. 5:8)?  Do you believe they were working in Judaism during the time of Jesus Christ's earthly ministry (John 8:44)? 


So where are the false apostles of Christ?  Where is Satan, who has transformed himself into a messenger of light?  Where are all of the devil's little demon spirits, who have transformed themselves into ministers of righteousness?  Where are they?  Have you ever seen one, anywhere?  Do you think they're all down in the Bahamas sunbathing on lounge chairs?  What do you suppose they are doing now?


The devil, the "god of the age of this" (2 Cor. 4:4), and his little demon spirits, are still working on many fronts in this world.  But the two most important front lines are in the Judeo and Christian religions, to stifle the revelation of the knowledge of Jesus Christ, and the one true God's new covenant with all mortalkind, which the God brought to pass through Christ Jesus.  How do you suppose the devil does this?  What did we just read in John 8:42-44 that Jesus said, about the devil being the father of lies? 


Replacing the God's Truth with close but counterfeit Truth, lies, has always been at the center of the devil's work.  For him, keeping people divided from one another through causing them to argue over the plausibility of a never ending stream of lies, works just fine.  This keeps people side-tracked from actually studying the ancient Biblical texts for themselves. 



Christian's Ignorance of Church History


At various times in the history of the Catholic church many people were banned from reading the holy scriptures for themselves.  Do you think the devil may have been behind it?  The prophets, then Christ Jesus, and then his apostles, were sent into the world to preach and teach the God's orthodoxy, his Word, to mortalkind.  This is what Jesus Christ kept on saying to all of the religious leaders, that he was sent to do.  The "church", at various times, has done just the opposite, to aggressively keep people ignorant of that true orthodoxy of the God almighty.  Doing this kept people ignorant of the scriptural Truth of God, and thereby kept them spiritually weak in their belief in their hearts. 


The devil knows that people who believe a false Truth remain just as spiritually powerless as people who believe nothing at all.  Stopping people from reading holy scripture helped the devil stay in spiritual control of mortalkind, through controlling what they heard and were taught, and from comparing what they heard from what the holy scriptures say.  But the Catholic church didn't then, and it still doesn't, teach the God's true orthodoxy.  But it preaches and teaches the Constantinian "theological" triune godhead invention established in A.D. 325 at the Counsel of Nice, and then Theodosius much more harshly re-imposed it upon the world again in A.D. 380-381, at bloody spear point.  So is this why most of the historical Christian documents of the first three centuries are missing, because they were deemed heretical under Constantine, and he had his generals destroy them!  I believe thousands of copies of ancient Christian-related texts were destroyed, and many were hidden or buried to be discovered at some time in the future.  And now, those "heretical" ancient Christian scrolls are being dug up, and surfacing, all over the world.


Here's a partial quote of Bernard Starr in the Huffington Post, in his blog updated July 20, 2013: 

"The Council of Nicaea called by the Emperor Constantine met in 325 C.E. to establish a unified Catholic Church. At that point no universally sanctioned Scriptures or Christian Bible existed. Various churches and officials adopted different texts and gospels. That’s why the Council of Hippo sanctioned 27 books for the New Testament in 393 C.E. Four years later the Council of Cartage confirmed the same 27 books as the authoritative Scriptures of the Church.

Wouldn’t you assume that the newly established Church would want its devotees to immerse themselves in the sanctioned New Testament, especially since the Church went to great lengths to eliminate competing Gospels? And wouldn’t the best way of spreading the “good news” be to ensure that every Christian had direct access to the Bible?

That’s not what happened. The Church actually discouraged the populace from reading the Bible on their own — a policy that intensified through the Middle Ages and later, with the addition of a prohibition forbidding translation of the Bible into native languages.  Oh, so the God changed his mind, and he no longer wanted people to read or know his Word.  Is that what you think the God almighty wants you to believe?

Yet, a different model already existed in Judaism. Dating back to the Exodus, Moses ordained public readings of the Torah, according to Jewish Roman historian Flavius Josephus: “...every week men should desert their other occupations and assemble to listen to the Torah and to obtain a thorough and accurate knowledge.” That practice later became standard in synagogue services, in which the Old Testament (Torah) is read over a year in sequence, covering the entire Bible. In fact, as a practicing Jew, Jesus read the weekly parsha (section of the Torah) at the Sabbath services that he regularly attended: “And he went to Nazareth where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day and stood up for to read” (Luke 4:16).

Since the Church sequestering their sanctioned Bible from the populace makes no sense, I was not surprised that some readers bristled when I recently wrote about the historic prohibitions against Christians reading the New Testament on their own, or worse, translating the Bible into a native language. One called me a liar. That too was not surprising. A few years earlier I gave a talk at an American Psychological Association meeting and afterwards lunched with a group of young Christians, some of whom also challenged my statements about the Bible prohibitions. I later sent them references documenting my claims, but never heard back from them. I’ve always wondered how they reacted to the citations I sent, which included:

Decree of the Council of Toulouse (1229 C.E.): “We prohibit also that the laity should be permitted to have the books of the Old or New Testament; but we most strictly forbid their having any translation of these books.”

Ruling of the Council of Tarragona of 1234 C.E.: “No one may possess the books of the Old and New Testaments in the Romance language, and if anyone possesses them he must turn them over to the local bishop within eight days after promulgation of this decree, so that they may be burned...”

Proclamations at the Ecumenical Council of Constance in 1415 C.E.: Oxford professor, and theologian John Wycliffe, was the first (1380 C.E.) to translate the New Testament into English to “...helpeth Christian men to study the Gospel in that tongue in which they know best Christ’s sentence.” For this “heresy” Wycliffe was posthumously condemned by Arundel, the archbishop of Canterbury. By the Council’s decree “Wycliffe’s bones were exhumed and publicly burned and the ashes were thrown into the Swift River.”

Fate of William Tyndale in 1536 C.E.: William Tyndale was burned at the stake for translating the Bible into English. According to Tyndale, the Church forbid owning or reading the Bible to control and restrict the teachings and to enhance their own power and importance." - Bernard Starr, Ph.D. "Why Christians Were Denied Access to Their Bible for 1,000 Years."

Bernard Starr's context was that the new testament books were to be kept out of the hands of people on account of racist bigotry in the Catholic church against Jews; to disconnect Jesus Christ from any and all things Jewish.  I believe the cause or causes for the banning of people from reading holy texts, and the twisting of Bible translations into lies, is rooted much deeper, and it is about keeping all things about the true orthodoxy of the one true God out of the hands and minds of all mortalkind!  The devil's trick is to keep mortals focused upon, and immersed in, a controlling false "Christian" construct to keep them side-tracked away from the true orthodoxy of the one true God and his son Christ Jesus.


When a person comes to believe upon the name of Jesus, to learn and believe what the God has done in and through him for all mortalkind, with his new covenant, that's when the devil and little demon spirits can no longer spiritually control that person's life; and that person starts to spiritually control his or her own life, and starts learning to recognize and control the demon spirit activity going on around him or her, which before was hidden to them through ignorance.  This is why the devil has been so historically involved in altering what people believe through steering their perceptions into what he wants them to believe is the Truth of God's Word. 


This is why Bible Translation is such a big deal to me.  The devil's first big accomplishment after the day of Pentecost and the birth of the ekklesia, the one body of Christ, was to slow down, if not destroy, the great Truth of what the God has done through Christ Jesus.  The devil wishes to destroy the Ministry of Reconciliation, which builds the one body of Christ, Christ's bride.  All of the devil's activities are focused upon either stopping Christ's one body from growing, or destroying it.   How?  If the devil can convince people that his "Christian" concoction is true, then people will believe and "worship" Jesus Christ as the one true God almighty, which is idolatry, and which breaks the first commandment, and so therefore the reward earned for idolatry is an appointment with the lake/harbor of fire. 


Jesus Christ referred to this trap of the devil, about people believing they are doing God's will through believing Jesus was and is his Father, the God almighty himself (Mat. 7:13 - 7:16a).  In this passage Jesus is referring to certain, specific people, people who are specifically searching for him, Jesus Christ.  Presently, the "wide gate" leading to the broad way which many are following, hoping it leads them to the Savior, Christ Jesus, is the Trinitarian theology invented in the early fourth century, which is leading people to idolatry, to their own destruction and loss (Mat. 7:13) into the lake/harbor of fire.


The 4th century three-in-one pagan godhead concept established by Constantine in A.D. 325 was already in use in virtually all other pagan religions.  It's how the devil has been controlling mortalkind on the planet since time began, controlling them through religion, three-headed god religions, all over the world.  Then again through the Theodosian edict of A.D. 381, but this time much more harshly, he forced the triune godhead "theological" invention to replace any and all religions in the empire.  Then every kind of religion became intolerable, and all were labeled heresy, including the Christian orthodoxy which Christ Jesus and his apostles preached and taught, which became replaced by the Trinity.


That together with the deliberate destruction of literally thousands of Christian documents in circulation and use up to and in the 4th century, helped Constantine (the devil working through Constantine) to put in place a new false Christianity which couldn't be challenged by anyone who didn't have an army like the Roman army, to stop it.  Those people were told what to believe, and they taught their children what to believe, all according to Constantine's plan (the devil's plan) and that's how we have a three-in-one pagan godhead "Christian" theology today.  Constantine wasn't converted to Christianity, he went for years still murdering, raping, pillaging, stealing, killing and destroying (John 10:9).


The second most important frontline of the devil's continued charade is to produce Bible translations which are altered to include words and phrases, creative "synonyming" and paraphrasing, to refer to Constantine's three-in-one godhead false orthodoxy, and to pass those alterations off as being what Jesus' apostles actually wrote in the first century!  Bible publishers aren't telling you they're doing this!  You can't open up a Bible translation and go to a page in the beginning and read a disclaimer saying, "Caution: many, many parts of this translation have been altered from what Jesus apostles originally wrote so that we can shove down your throat Constantine's triune godhead theory he established in the 4th century."   That's not the way the devil works.  He's sly and cunning, crafty, as I'm guessing you may have read in parts of a Bible which may not yet have been altered.



Christian's Ignorance of the Holy Scriptures


The exhorted politically correct rule of thumb for basically all of Christianity is Keep it simple, stupid!  I believe this hackneyed saying had its origin long ago in the days when the "church" desired to exert much more control over its followers/tax base/victims, and so an inside silent edict was declared for the clergy to Keep them simple and stupid


over the last two thousand years the "church" has declared itself its own head, replacing Christ Jesus as the head of the church, and thereby sanctioning itself with its own self-appointed authority, to invent almost any kind cleverly devised "Christian" ritual and/or practice, and then claim it to have a divine origin.  Those in authority and leadership insisted, and still do, that they not be held accountable for lack of strict adherence to biblical scriptural fact, for the things they say and do, while insisting everyone else must be held accountable, even for things they invent out of "theological" imagination, or rare air.


A long time ago I asked myself a simple but logical question: "How can I claim to love the God almighty with all of my heart, soul, mind, and strength, but yet not care enough about his Word, about what he desires for us to know about him, to work hard at it for the rest of my life to gain a thorough and comprehensive collection of the knowledge and understanding of it?  Is their any correlation between desiring to love the God, and desiring to know the God?  I had to conclude, in less than a fraction of a second, the answer to be "Yes", or conclude myself to be a damned fool!


So then, exactly what is the knowledge of the biblical holy scriptures, and other non-biblical holy scriptures?  Can it include anything and everything that any damned fool can come up with who can't wear a pair of matching socks, but who claims to know the God through wild imagination?  That's how we got a lot of "Christianity" over the centuries, you know, or don't you?  Scrolls were scarce, and expensive, and the poor couldn't read them anyway.  The mass printing of books didn't come along until later, along with their relatively much cheaper cost per copy.  And somewhere in their the church actively campaigned to keep people from reading the holy scriptures on their own, because they were deemed to be to ignorant and stupid to make anything out of it on their own, as if the God almighty and his son Christ Jesus are powerless to teach anyone.


"How many of you here at Sunday school today know, and can quote, at least one Bible verse?  Can I see a show of hands please?  Okay.  Now, how many people here today know, and can quote, two Bible verses?  Okay.  Now, how many people here today know, and can quote, three Bible verses?  Okay, not too many hands are going up now.  Thank you!"


Ever wonder why in most weekly gatherings the Sunday worship services are usually kept to about an hour in length?  Many organizations conduct two one hour worship services in the same morning, before noon.  I think that's because they have more people coming than the place can hold at one time.  Could there be any correlation between a congregation's desire to hear God's Word and the consensus among them for the amount of time they are willing to devote to listening to the God almighty?  If people loved God so much, why not go to a church somewhere one hour a day, seven days a week?  Or why not go to a Sunday worship service which lasted for seven hours?  If a person is willing to work five or six eight hour days a week, then why not do a seven hour worship day, once a week?  One hour, on only one day, doesn't appear, at first glance, to be logical, if the commandment states that we are to love the God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. 


I've seen people who do what they love to do.  And guess what, they do it all of the time!  People who do what they love, do it all of the time.  So doesn't spending only one hour a week, not including driving time, seem a bit disingenuous for someone who loves the God almighty with all of his heart, soul, mind and strength? 


During lunch hours I used to listen to talk radio a lot, to mostly religion and news-based shows.  I'll never forget a time when I called into a talk radio program to express my  opinion/belief.  The host was taking calls form people suffering from drug abuse and other substance abuse.  The people were explaining why they abuse themselves with various substances, why they needed them, suffering from lack of self-respect, self dignity, and issues with family and friends.  I called in one time when there was a person on the line who apparently was hoping for, and waiting for, someone to give him or her sympathy, empathy or some kind of love at all.  So I began to express my opinion/belief that generally speaking, people say the things, and do the things which are most important to them.  Then we all (everyone listening) suddenly learned that this person had a daughter.  This person on the other phone line, after being confronted with the fact that she had a little daughter who needed to be loved and cared for, almost lost it altogether, after coming face to face with the realization that she was causing constant horrific pain to her little daughter so she could constantly go on feeling good with drugs.  On the phone with the show host and that other woman, I suggested that people do the things which they value the most, which suggested to that woman that she loved and valued her drugs more than she loved and valued her own little daughter.  When so-called Christian people practice idolatry, and teach their children also to practice it, which are those people loving more, the idolatry or their children?


I believe the natural state of unsaved mortalkind is to desire the drug of ignorance, because the truths about things in life are so hard to bear sometimes, especially the Truth that we are all sinners and need wholeness/salvation.  But the Truth is not simply that alone, the hard Truth to bear about that is that wholeness salvation is about fulfilling someone else's conditions to obtain it.  The hard Truth of it is that we can't be in control, we're not in charge, we can't call the shots on how we can obtain wholeness/salvation.  That's more than a damn nuisance for many.  I think of that little one hour time slot as "The Appeasement Hour", the bare minimum amount of time that we can plausibly convince ourselves that the God will accept as sufficient demonstration of our love for him, while we spend the rest of our time making ourselves feel good.


  "How many of you here at Sunday school today believe that you understand very well what you read in your Bible?  Can I see a show of hands please?  Okay, I see a few hands, wish I saw more.  How many people here today own, or know what is, a biblical commentary?  Okay, one hand.  Now, how many people here today know what is the difference between the God's old and new covenants?  Okay, a couple of hands that time.  How many people here today only know what is the new covenant?  Okay, only one hand on that one.  Now, how many people here today believed they are saved?  Okay, I see everyone's hand on that question!  Thank you!"



The Orthodoxy  of the God


"How many people here today know the difference between the orthodoxy the God almighty taught to his firstborn son, Christ Jesus, and the Triune godhead orthodoxy invented in the late third and early fourth centuries?  I see no hands go up.  You've heard the saying, 'Keep it simple, stupid'.  But, does anyone here desire to stay simple and stupid?  Again, I see no hands go up.  Now this doesn't make any sense.  Apparently no one here knows the difference between the true and false Christian orthodoxies, but yet no one desires to remain simple and stupid!  And all of those here who love the God almighty with all of their hearts, souls, minds and strength, can only spare an hour a week to learn his Word, his Truth! 


The detail knowledge of the God's covenants are at the core of the orthodoxy which the God taught his son Jesus Christ to preach and teach to others, during his earthly ministry, and then which Jesus' apostles were, and are, to teach (John 7:14-19; Rom. 6:16-18, 16:17-18; Gal. 1:6-12; 2 Tim. 4:1-4; Titus 1:7-11; 2 John 1:6-11). 


And so you can see how important it is for anyone and everyone claiming to love the God, and claiming to follow Christ Jesus, to determine definitively, what exactly is that orthodoxy which the God almighty taught to his firstborn son, Christ Jesus?  From reading these passages anyone can see that everything the believers in Jesus Christ were to think, say and do was to be within the boundaries of the true orthodoxy which the God taught his firstborn son Jesus Christ.  That orthodoxy was put in place to be the spiritual foundation of knowledge and wisdom for the new one body of Christ.


Anyone who can read and understand the writings of the prophets and Jesus' apostles, and who can understand their covenant-related subject matters, can see and understand how all of the apparatuses of the first covenant were physical types of promises of the God to the children of Israel for spiritual realities which would come to pass under his new covenant.  The old covenant prophets preached and wrote about the God's promises for the great things which He would bring to pass for the children of Israel under a future new covenant.  Jesus Christ's apostles preached, taught and wrote about those great and precious promises (2 Pet. 1:4) literally coming to pass for the children of Israel, before their eyes, through the birth, death and resurrection of the God's firstborn son, Jesus Christ.  This is the core Truth of that true orthodoxy of the God which he taught to his firstborn son, Jesus Christ. 


That the religious leaders in Jesus' day couldn't see how that Jesus could be the promised coming redeemer, maybe that was because they didn't want to work hard enough at studying and learning what the prophets wrote, to be able to recognize and welcome him.  Or maybe they simply decided they would rather work for the devil.  And that is exactly what they decided to do (John 8:44)!


The substance of the true orthodoxy of the God almighty is in the details of the first covenant's great and precious promises, and then in the details of the coming to pass of those great and precious promises under God's new covenant, about which details Jesus Christ and his apostles preached, taught, and wrote.  Those covenant's details are abundant throughout God's Word, which details are the scriptural evidence for the constitution of God's true orthodoxy.


The Orthodoxy of the God Was/Is Truth 


The scriptural evidence itself declares that God's true orthodoxy was not in error when the God taught it to his son Jesus Christ, but rather, Jesus' God, the one true God almighty, filled Jesus with Truth (John 1:12-17;  )! 


We can logically work backwards from that too, and believe with certainty that those parts of God's orthodoxy which he taught and gave to his prophets also, was not in error.  And working forward, we can believe with certainty that those parts of his orthodoxy which his son Christ Jesus taught his apostles also was not in error.  Therefore we can believe with certainty that at no time during the God's revealing of his true orthodoxy either to his prophets, or to his son Christ Jesus, or of Jesus Christ's preaching and teaching it to his disciples and the children of Israel, was that orthodoxy neither substantively in error, nor was it transmitted in error, in any way.  Else, the God almighty didn't know what he was talking about and doing, and neither did his son Christ Jesus. 


But Constantine in the forth century, through establishing a new triune godhead orthodoxy which Jesus Christ and his apostles absolutely did not preach or teach, boldly states through using Roman army troop's action against anyone resisting his theological offensive, that the God's true orthodoxy was in error.  And the God and his son were liars, and the false orthodoxy Jesus Christ and his apostles preached and taught needed to be replaced on account of its error. 


 Through close scrutiny of the apparatuses of both covenants and their outcomes, which is tangible scriptural hard evidence for the God's true orthodoxy, we can see that God's true orthodoxy is comprehensive and cohesive, but it is absolutely not nebulous!  God's true orthodoxy is magnificently interlocking and one in its creation.  How can all of the ancient prophets and Jesus' apostles all agree exactly on the same thing if it was not the one true God almighty working through his Spirit in each and every one of them to say the same thing?



The Destruction of Middle And Passive Voice Verbs In Bible Translations


The affects produced in Bible Translations (pick one, any one!) from adding, changing, and deleting the scriptural content of the biblical authors, using paraphrases and creative "synonyming", or any other method of fudging, comes out of the egomaniacal omniscience of natural men (1 Cor. 2:14) who portray themselves as working for the highest God and his son Christ Jesus.


With the exception of altering in translation elohiym in the old covenant texts into a singular from a plural, into God instead of godly heavenly hosts, the next huge blunder is changing all of the middle and passive voice verbs which show Jesus' own self-determination being challenged, into active voice verbs.  The net effect is an attempt to diminish, obscure, disassociate, Jesus' mortality from him, as portrayed by the biblical authors.  Subsequently this enhances, elevates or manufactures a godliness of Christ Jesus to be more toward being on an equal level with that of the highest God, Jesus' heavenly Father.  Here's one of many obvious blatant mistranslations manufactured to help accomplish this.


Phil. 2:5 (LIT/UBS4) Think (phroneite) of this (touto) in (en) you (humin), which (ho) [thought of humility, v3, RE] [was] in (en) Christ (Christō) Jesus (Iēsou) also (kai);


Phil. 2:6 (LIT/UBS4) who (hos), being one under control (huparchōn) in (en) [a] form (morphē) of [a] god (theou), he absolutely did not lead himself (ouch hēgēsato) of the (to) [thinking, v2, RE] to equally be (einai isa) [a] god (theō), something stolen (harpagmon)!


Is apostle Paul trying to persuade us to think something?  Yes.  About what exactly are we supposed to think?  He's asking us to think about what Christ Jesus thought about, about not leading ourselves around like we are equal to the highest God.  Christ Jesus didn't think that he was equal in greatness to the Highest God, his heavenly Father (John 10:29, 14:28), and he refused to be treated as such (Rev. 22:8-9).  Maybe that is because Jesus himself didn't believe he was equal in greatness to his heavenly Father.  Was Jesus right or wrong in his thinking and belief? 


Do you see the verb hēgēsato in verse 6?  It's an inflected form of hēgeomaiHēgēsato is in the indicative mood, aorist (past) tense, middle voice, 3rd person, singular in number.  A verb in the middle voice indicates that the subject is performing the action of the verb on himself.   The meaning of hēgeomai is to lead.  Its noun form, hēgemōn, means a leader.  Jesus Christ absolutely did not (ouch) lead himself (hēgēsato) to both think and then snatch/steal equality with a god; not while he was on earth, and not now while performing his heavenly mediator duties for us (Rev. 22:8-9).  


Phil. 2:7 (LIT/UBS4) BUT (alla), he emptied (ekenōsen) himself (heauton), he having taken (lobōn) [a] form (morphēn) of [a] slave (doulou), he having caused himself to become (genomenos) in (en) [a] likeness (homoiōmati) of mortals (anthrōpōn), and (kai) one having been found (heuretheis) [in, RE] [a] scheme (schēmati) as (hōs) [a] mortal (anthrōpos)!


 Do you see the verb genomenos in verse 7?  It's an inflected form of ginomai, which means to become.  The verb refers to nothing, or something, changing from one condition, form, or state into another.  It's a participle in the aorist (past) tense, nominative case, masculine gender, and singular in number.  Apostle Paul states that the Word, which it was before it became flesh (John 11:14), caused himself to become in a likeness of mortals


He caused himself (middle voice) to do it.  He volunteered and then caused himself to do it.  How do I know that the Word volunteered for the hazardous duty of becoming our redeemer, on account of all of the other passages in the new covenant texts about Jesus Christ, in which the verbs are actually in the middle and passive voices, but which have all been translated in the active voice in virtually all Trinitarian produced Bibles. 


Through examining the middle and passive voice verbs which the apostles deliberately used, we can begin to get a clearer conception and understanding of the true identity of the Word, and its hazardous mission for which it volunteered, to redeem all mortalkind from the penalty of its sin.  Unfortunately in virtually all other English Bible translations these middle voice verbs are most always translated and paraphrased away using phrases with active voice verbs in their places, which very severely dumbs down those translations through obliterating the scriptural evidence of the true identity of the Word which became flesh. 


The identity of the Word those translations are trying to obliterate is that the Word was the first thing the God created of all of his creation, and that the Word was a heavenly messenger.  Although it had a spirit-based form/body of some kind, it was not yet a paternal son of the God.  That occurred after the Word became flesh, when Jesus received a new birth from above in the God's gift of his paternal Spirit very shortly after Jesus was water baptized by John the Baptist.  The Constantinian triune godhead theory says that the Word, which became Jesus Christ, didn't have a beginning, but was always the God, contrary to what the apostles wrote.


For the Word being the firstborn one of the heavenly messengers (Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:*4, 2:7-*9, 3:2),


- and then he causing himself to become a stronger positioned one of the messengers (Heb. 1:4),


- and the other messengers being partners of him (Heb. 1:9, 2:7-9),


- and then he causing himself to be hand-chosen by God (Acts 3:20; Heb. 1:6-13, 2:5-9),


- and then he being decreased a little bit alongside of the messengers (Heb. 2:7-9),


- and then the Word causing itself to become flesh (John 1:14),


causing himself to become out of the seed of David (Rom. 1:3),


causing himself to become a man (Luke 24:19; Phil. 2:7; Heb. 2:7-9),


- and then he causing himself to become a son of God (Heb. 1:5),


- and then he causing himself to evangelize (Luke 20:1),


- and then he causing himself to become the grace and Truth of the God (John 1:17),


- and then he causing himself to become an inherently powered prophet (Luke 24:19),


- and then he causing himself to become the head of an angle [a plumb-bob] (Mat. 21:42; Mark 12:10-11; Luke 20:17; Acts 4:11; 1 Pet. 2:7),


- and then he causing himself to become a curse over the sake of us (Gal. 3:13),


- and then he causing himself to become a dead one (Phil. 2:8; Heb. 2:9; Rev. 1:18, 2:8),


- and then he having caused himself to make a cleansing of us from the penalty of our sins (Heb. 1:3),


- and then he causing himself to become the enabling one of our ageless wholeness (Heb. 5:9),


- and then he causing himself to become an invisible one to others (Luke 24:31),


- and then he causing himself to become an ageless chief sacrificial priest (Heb. 5:5-6, 6:20),


- and then he causing himself to become a called-out messenger sent by God, see (Rev. 1:1, 22:8),


- and then he causing himself to become a higher one of the heavens (Heb. 7:26)


- and then he causing himself to sit down at the right of the thrown of the God (Heb. 1:13).


Please see note under Mat. 3:17 also for many more middle voice-related Truths.


On account of the Word, the first thing the God created of all of his creation, who was created as a heavenly messenger, volunteered and then caused himself to do all of these things to save mortalkind from certain destruction and death, he earned a name above all other names in the heavens.


Phil. 2:8 (LIT/UBS4) He humbled (etapeinōsen) himself (heauton), he having caused himself to become (genomenos) attentive (hupēkoos) until (mechri) death (thanatou), but (de) death (thanatou) of a stake (staurou)!


Phil. 2:9 (LIT/UBS4) And (kai) through which (dio) the (ho) God (theos) set [him] over above (huperupsōsen auton), and (kai) caused himself to be gracious (echarisato) to him (autō);


[and He gave to him] the (to) name (onoma), the one (to) over (huper) every (pan) name (onoma);


Phil. 2:10 (LIT/UBS4) in order that (hina) in (en) the (tō) name (onomati) of Jesus (Iēsou) every (pan) knee (gonu) may bend2578 (kampsē);


of [every knee] over heavenly things (epouraniōn), and (kai) of [every knee] over lands (epigeiōn), and (kai) of [every knee] down under grounds (katachthoniōn);


Phil. 2:11 (LIT/UBS4) and (kai) every (pasa) tongue (glōssa) may cause itself to confess out (exomologēsētai) that (hoti) [the] lord (kurios) [of him] [is] Jesus (Iēsous) Christ (Christos), into (eis) glory (doxan) of God (theou), of [the] Father (patros).


In perhaps 1,000 or more passages of holy scripture, in virtually all Bible translations, the producers of those Bibles ignore what the apostles wrote, their deliberate usages of middle and passive voice verbs, and replace those voices, or the verbs entirely, replacing them with their own egomaniacal omniscient paraphrases of what they believe the apostles should have written and meant.  That's lying!  Okay, here's a discerning of spirits moment for you:  Do you think people who lie about what the prophets and apostles wrote are working for the God, or against the God?


The plan and orthodoxy of the God which He taught to his son Jesus Christ, which Jesus taught to his disciples and apostles, was not in error, the God was not stupid in its design, Jesus Christ was not stupid in the way he executed the plan, and the prophets and apostles who wrote about it were not writing incoherently or unconsciously!


As you can see or begin to imagine, removing the middle and passive voices in literally more than a thousand instances, dramatically alters the holy scriptures in English translations from conveying the true identity, the Christology, the mystery of godliness about him from the reader's eyes.  This is probably one of the most important ways Trinitarian theology has influenced, and still is influencing English Bible translations.  Virtually all English translations, on account of the adoption of the Roman emperor god-man Constantine the Great's new established orthodoxy of a triune godhead "Christianity", it has destroy the true identity of Christ Jesus in Bible translations. 


I thank the God that we still have the ancient copies of the Hebrew and Greek texts, which existence is the only thing stopping the complete removal of God's Word from the face of the earth.  When you begin to see or hear in the news about the burning of, and the systematic destruction of, the ancient Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible, then you'll know that the one world government has arrived, and with it the antichrist.



Theodosius' Edict For The Re-imposition Of The Triune Godhead "Christian" Orthodoxy


The following is the edict of Theodosius the Great in either 380-381 A. D. - Wikipedia


It is our desire that all the various nations which are subject to our Clemency and Moderation, should continue to profess that religion which was delivered to the Romans by the divine Apostle Peter, as it has been preserved by faithful tradition, and which is now professed by the Pontiff Damasus and by Peter, Bishop of Alexandria, a man of apostolic holiness. According to the apostolic teaching and the doctrine of the Gospel, let us believe in the one deity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, in equal majesty and in a holy Trinity. We authorize the followers of this law to assume the title of Catholic Christians; but as for the others, since, in our judgment they are foolish madmen, we decree that they shall be branded with the ignominious name of heretics, and shall not presume to give to their conventicles the name of churches. They will suffer in the first place the chastisement of the divine condemnation and in the second the punishment of our authority which in accordance with the will of Heaven we shall decide to inflict.



In essence, the Roman god-man emperor Constantine the Great's new orthodoxy condemned the true orthodoxy of the one true God, which true orthodoxy came through the mouths of his prophets, Jesus Christ, and Jesus' apostles and disciples.  The orthodoxy which Jesus' heavenly Father taught to him included the statement that there are no other gods beside him (2 Sam. 7:22; 1 Chron. 17:20; Isa. 44:8; 45:5; Rom. 3:30; 1 Cor. 8:6; Eph. 4:6; 1 Tim. 2:5; James 2:19), and that includes Constantine!  Constantine and his approved bishops and sees imagined a vain thing (Psalm 2:1-2; Acts 4:25), that the one true God was not a single omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent spirit-based being, but imagined that the God was three distinctly different gods, all attached at the hip somehow.  This assertion is fudged into virtually all Bible translations in many various ways.



"In the Beginning God ..." Is In the Plural!


One important way this is done in the old testament books is through translating the plural Hebrew word elohiym into English, and other languages, as a singular, using the English word God.  This hijacks the root meaning of elohiym, which refers in plural to a corporation of the entire heavenly host which the God created, to be redefined as one triune godhead corporation, instead of elohiym referring to the entire heavenly host which the God has created as his agents, that he uses to manage his creation.  The Trinitarian influence on Bible translations on how those Bibles translate elohiym, insists that it be translated as a singular, God, or it be translated as a plural, gods, and in either of these translations it refers to only a triune godhead, but at anytime elohiym cannot refer to the entire heavenly host as his agents.  But that's not for omniscient scholars to decide for us, its up to the reader to decide for himself or herself when reading those passages which contain elohiym, based upon the context what does the prophet mean.


Do you think the prophets of the God wrote unconsciously, that they accidentally used the plural, elohiym, in hundreds of places while they actually intended to use the singular el?  That's ludicrous!  The entire old testament needs to be retranslated to correct their giant theological blunder.


Constantinian/Trinitarian "Christianity" leads its followers into not differentiating between the God and the other heavenly spirit-based beings which the God created for his instrumental use, to produce and manage the creation in which we all now live.  Through Trinitarian-biased Bible translations the modern day followers of Constantine ignore the entire heavenly host, to replace the meaning of elohiym with an idolatrous three-headed meaning, which meaning now leads followers of Christ Jesus into worshipping Jesus, God's firstborn son, as the God himself.  But careful study of the new covenant texts leads us into the truth of what the plural elohiym actually means.


In Acts 7:42-43 Luke records that the children of Israel began to worship certain members of the heavenly host as gods, instead of the one true God.


Acts 7:42 (LIT/UBS4) But (de) the (ho) God (theos) turned (estrepsen), and (kai) He passed them aside (paredōken) to serve (latreuein) the (tē) army (stratia) of the (tou) heaven (ouranou);


down as (kathōs) it has been written (gegraptai) in (en) a scroll (biblō) of the (tōn) prophets (prophētōn), "Did you not bring (mē prosēnenkate) slaughtered things (sphagia) and (kai) sacrifices (thusias) to Me (moi) for forty (tesserakonta) years (etē) in (en) the (tē) desolate place (erēmō), house (oikos) of Israel (Israēl)!?


Acts 7:43 (LIT/UBS4) And (kai) you took up (anelabete) the (tēn) tent (skēnēn) of the (tou) Moloch (Moloch), and (kai) the (to) star (astron) of the (tou) god (theou) of you (humōn), Rephan (Rhaiphan), the (tous) types5179 (tupous) of which (hous) you made (epoiēsate) to bow to4352 (proskunein) them (autois)!


And (kai) shall I house with (metoikiō) you (humas) beyond (epekeina) Babylon (Babulōnos)!?"


Here in Acts 7:42-43 disciple Luke records the prophet Stephen quoting the words of the prophet Amos in Amos 5:25-27.  Stephen is witnessing to the public his great knowledge of what the prophets have written, shortly before the public stoned Stephen for witnessing to them the Truth of God's Word.  Ask yourself this, why did the children of Israel stone Stephen?  What did Stephen say or do, which either broke the law, or which they hated so much that they murdered him through stoning him to death?  Read these two chapters in Luke, beginning in Acts 6:8 through Acts 7:60, and see if you can come up with the answer.  Discovering this answer is very important to anyone's discipleship to Christ Jesus.


In Acts 7:42 Luke states that the God turned away from the children of Israel, and He passed them aside, He stopped blessing, and helping them, because they desired to serve "the army of the heaven".  The army of the heaven are other members of the heavenly host.  Here in this passage Luke tells us that the children of Israel began to worship Moloch and Rephan, two members of "the army of the heaven", which I believe means two members of the "heavenly host", on account of Moses apparently disappeared without out a trace. 


In Acts 7:43 Luke states "the star of the god of you, Rephan".  But in Amos 5:26 the word "god" is elohiym, plural, meaning gods.  Amos stated that both Moloch and Rephan, two members of the army of the heaven, began being worshipped by the children of Israel as gods, plural.   And that the children of Israel used the absence of Moses as their excuse to begin worshipping these two members of the heavenly host.  It doesn't make too much difference to the devil who anyone worships if it is not him, as long as it is not the one true God almighty.  As long as people are not worshipping/bowing to the one true God almighty, they are worshipping idols, and the penalty for that is death, which suits the devil just fine (John 8:44).


These two records, and some others, give us enlightenment on what is the true meaning of the plural Hebrew word elohiym, which I believe actually means not just gods, but the entire heavenly host, the corporate Kingdom of the God!  Elohiym literally refers to the Kingdom of the God, or maybe more exactly, the heavenly hosts of the God, which includes at least the God, the Word, all of the heavenly messengers, and the entire heavenly host, whomever and whatever they all may be!  This is how I believe elohiym should have been translated throughout the entire old covenant books of the Bible.  This explains why we never see the phrase kingdom of God in the old covenant books of the Bible.  Long ago, someone's (the devil's?) idea must have popped into someone's head that the plural elohiym should always mean a singular, God, and that lie became adopted. And that lie has prevailed over the meaning of elohiym ever since then.  Elohiym is translated as God, in the singular, in about 99% of its usages in the old covenant writings of virtually all Bible publications. 


Those pushing the Trinitarian theology desire to limit the meaning of the plural word elohiym to only three supposed spirit-based beings included in the "godhead"; the Father, the son of him, and the holy Spirit of him.  They don't want elohiym to mean God incorporated, or the kingdom of God, or God and all of his heavenly hosts.  They want not two, not four, but only three in the "godhead".  Two can be scripturally proven (Heb. 1), and more than three can be scripturally proven (Amos 5:25-27; Acts 7:42-43), but exactly three can only be imagined.  The fact that Christ Jesus is a god, but that he has a God over him who is a greater God, and that the Word in the beginning assisted the greater God in the creation of the heavens and earth, can be seen in Heb. 1, and elsewhere (Luke 1:32).  It's quite superfluous for the messenger speaking to Mariam, to describe the one true God as the highest God, if there are no other gods among which to compare.  Here again the messenger of the God states that the God and his son are two distinctly different beings, and it describes the Father being the highest God, and thereby being greater in authority and power than the lesser god, his son Christ Jesus.


But, if we were to adopt the plausibility of the Trinitarian theory for a moment and combine it with scriptural evidence, that if Christ Jesus is a member of that "godhead", and since those who are born above in the God's paternal gift of his holy Spirit cause themselves to become parts of Christ's one body, then suddenly the "godhead" must refer to many more beings, to an exponentially greater number of beings which must be included in the "godhead".  Unfortunately for the Trinitarian followers, the actual textual evidence not only in Amos 5:25-27 of the meaning of the plurality of elohiym, but other scriptural evidence, includes much more than only three.  


There is a passage where, in spite of Bible producer's preconceived theological ideas, elohiym has actually been translated in the plural, correctly, and surprisingly it is in reference to the angel/messenger beings of the heavenly host.  In Psalm 8:5 we can read:


Psalm 8:5 (LIT/BHS) and () You decreased (ḥsr) [him] lower (mĕʿaṭ) from (min) gods (ʾĕlōhîm), and () [from] glory (kābôd), and () [from] desirability (hādār), [and from him] being crowned (ʾṭr),


As you may or may not interpret for yourself, I take the meaning of the word "gods" in this verse, based in part upon the statement of the prophet Amos that the heavenly host are gods, to be a reference to the entire heavenly host, whom are all spirit-based beings (1 Cor. 15:35-55).  They being spirit-based beings are all gods compared to earthly, mortal, sinful, flesh-based beings (Rom. 6:19, 7:5, 18, 25, 8:3-9, 13:14), the sin in the flesh being passed down to all of Adam's posterity (Rom. 5:14; 1 Cor. 15:22, 45); which sin is exactly what prohibits mortalkind, God's creation, from being gods.  It is the broken body and shed blood of Christ Jesus, our wonderful redeemer, which paid the price for mortalkind's penalty for sin, which allows mortals to become gods, spirit-based beings, upon Jesus' acceptable judgment in our favor (John 5:22-30, 8:16, 9:39).


 The colossal affect produced by translating elohiym, throughout the entire old covenant books of the Bible, as a singular, God, instead of the plural, the Godly heavenly hosts, removes all of the heavenly hosts from being referenced as being part of the meaning of the word, so that elohiym can be redefined as an old covenant reference to the Trinitarian triune "godhead" theory, of only three. This is why the biblical concept of agency, especially agency of the heavenly host, appears nowhere in any book on systematic theology.  Because if it did it would draw too much attention to the heavenly host all working as agents for the one true highest God, which concept casts too big of a shadow of doubt on the triune godhead theory; a "godhead" containing the entire heavenly host obviously being too big to contain only three supposed beings.


Try reading an interlinear from the old covenant texts, but in every place where the word elohiym appears mentally replace it with "godly heavenly hosts", and I believe you'll begin to see what was the Truth which Moses actually wrote, and the truth about what the prophets wrote and meant. 



"The New Orthodoxy In the 4th Century Is Just A Harmless Replacement" - Christian Leadership


"Let's have a show of hands please, of how many here today desire to stay simple and stupid?"


Most Christians simply can't believe that the devil is working this way, even though throughout the old covenant writings, and in the new covenant writings, the prophets and Jesus' apostles describe and characterize the devil as working this way all of the time, throughout all of history!  Christians are constantly being trained, through the use of Constantine's new false orthodoxy, and through selective reading, the black-balling of certain passages in which Jesus and his apostles teach how to manifest God's gift of his holy Spirit which He has placed within a believer, to keep them ignorant from being able to discern the activity of the devil and demon spirits, working in and through people around them, as he and the little demon spirits did in and through the religious leaders among the children of Israel (John 8:44). 


That's how good is the showbiz is of the devil and his demon spirits.  It is so good!  The devil's showbiz was good enough to defeat Adam and Eve in the garden back then, what makes you think you're immune to his showbiz?  In fact, the devil's showbiz is so good that almost all of those who are searching for and believe they are following Jesus, are on the broad way, going through the wide gate, to their own destruction (Mat. 7:13-14).  Yes, Jesus was not talking about all of mortalkind, but only about those among mortalkind who believe they are seeking and following after him, Jesus.  Jesus Christ was prophesying about those following him during his time on earth, but in the future as well, maybe more so in the future, which is Christianity today.  The true way has been smothered, says Jesus, and is very narrow and hard to find.  What?  Don't we have Christianity on every corner!?  How can Christ and his "way", his orthodoxy, be so hard to find, according to Jesus Christ? 


I've discovered, from translating the LIT now for the last twenty-three years, from translating well over eighteen thousand unique inflected forms from the UBS4 Greek texts of the new covenant, that the orthodoxy about which Jesus' apostles wrote in the copies of the Greek texts is dramatically different than the "accepted"/"approved" "Christian" orthodoxy of Constantine being preached and taught out there on most all of those street corners, wherein is the wide gate and the broad way".  And I believe I know the reason why.  The reason is in the passages I've shown above (Mat. 7:13-14, 25:41; John 8:42-44; 2 Cor. 11:13-15).



Blame the Essenes and Gnostics - They're the REAL Evil Sinners?


It's deflection, from Subterfuge 101, a class taught by the devil.  Believers eyes are being deflected away from staring closely at the details in God's Word which teach discerning of spirits, of how to detect and recognize spiritual subterfuge and deceit, to staring at the supposed enemy of God's Truth, for example, the Essenes and the Gnostics, or anything else which is handy at the time.  This is why the chapter titled Demonology doesn't appear in any works titled Systematic Theology.  The Christian church desires all of its pew-sitters to remain totally ignorant of the subject matter of discerning of spirits (1 Cor. 12), else most all of its leaders would suddenly become visible! 


Who were the Essenes and Gnostic believers of Christ Jesus, and why did they believe the resurrected Christ Jesus was the true head of the church?  Why did they believe that they, his one body, reported directly to him, the head of them, and that there were no other "heads" of the church?  Why did they believe that the only other leadership in the church that was necessary other than the head, Christ Jesus, were apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, and that's it!  That doesn't sound gnostic to me, that's what I read in the remaining new covenant Greek texts of the Bible (Eph. 4:11)!  Sure, there were and still are totally fictional "Christian" fabrications developed by some to help them become relevant, but labeling those fabricators as Essenes and Gnostics to handily transfer the character of evil onto them is still the same old kind of subterfuge the devil always uses.


What I can't find in the new covenant Greek texts of the Bible is much of what Christianity (it should actually be called Constantinian Christianity) preaches and teaches today, specifically all of the triune godhead theologically invented stuff which came along in the fourth century.  It's invented nomenclature and all of its associated terminology is no where to be found in the new covenant Greek texts of the Bible, nor in the old covenant texts as well!  There is zero scriptural evidence that the prophets, and Christ Jesus, and his apostles, ever preached and taught anything even close to a triune godhead concept, even though we can read numerous and abundant "translated" references to the Trinity in virtually all Bible translations.  Hmmm, I wonder how they got in there?  ALL holy scriptural evidence which I've seen, deliberately looking to discover exactly what did Christ Jesus and his apostles actually preach and teach, indicates a "one-headed" God, with no other gods beside him. 



- Give To Others Vs Collect From Others


The Essenes and Gnostics were dedicated to a life of poverty and self-sacrifice, to love and give to others in need.  But yet Constantine's triune godhead Christianity has practiced, since its beginning, just the opposite, which is to systematically gather up any and all wealth and riches of any kind from its followers, or from wherever it can, to build massive mansions, oops, I mean temples, to provide opulent and glorious living conditions for its own earthly god-like leaders and "head".  I believe this began under Constantine who believed the Romans were killing their own tax base.  He had a city, epitaph, legacy to build, which was Constantinople.  He taxed many of his subjects so heavily that some went into poverty.


I guess most of you are still waiting for permission to think about these things for yourselves.  And who are the ones from whom you're waiting for that permission? Let me guess, it's the same ones who pass the plate to you to collect the ransom requested while holding hostage from you the knowledge of God's Word, which they tacitly insinuate you are too stupid to learn and understand for yourselves without their leadership.  Well, if you're still paying the ransom because you refuse to learn that the God and his son Christ Jesus can teach you God's Word directly, it's called sonship, discipleship and fellowship by Jesus' apostles, then maybe your earthly leaders you've adopted are correct in their insinuation!  Pardon me again, but, is it true that you are/were sucked in by free donuts, coffee, and entertainment!  Am I right!?



Oneness Vs Threeness


The scriptural evidence in the Hebrew and Greek texts, not English Bible translations, heavily emphasizes the concept of the oneness of God, concerning his true orthodoxy and plan for his creation.  Concerning scriptural evidence for any supposed orthodoxy, there is absolutely no triune godhead nomenclature, nor any of its associated terminology, in either the old or new covenant texts of the Bible!  Got that!  "Let's have another show of hands of who here desires to stay simple and stupid?"  All of the passages in the texts must be twisted and bent into English translations, their grammatical structures and inflected forms of words ignored, and often time replaced, in order to insinuate, to imply to the reader that the ancient writers may possibly be referring to a triune godhead concept.  As I've already began to explain in the section about middle and passive verb voices, the vague triune godhead wording is sculpted/fudged into Bible translations so skillfully as to cause the reader to believe that what they're reading is exactly what the ancient authors wrote.  Now, where is your discerning of spirits skills?  Doesn't that sound a little bit to you like post history revision?  And then doesn't that sound to you like dishonesty?  And then doesn't that sound to you like someone's lying? And then doesn't that sound to you like whomever may be doing this lying may be working for the devil (John 8:44)?


The true orthodoxy of all of the ancient prophets, Christ Jesus, and his apostles, is based upon oneness, not three-in-oneness.  Because there is only one Spirit, and everything else in existence is a creation of that one Spirit, is why the true orthodoxy of the God, which he taught his son Christ Jesus, is an orthodoxy based upon oneness.  This is the true witness of Christ Jesus and his apostles, which orthodoxy is still very clearly presented in all of the writings of the apostles in the existing copies of the ancient Greek texts of the Bible.  Many of the other ancient texts which the god-men Roman emperors Constantine (A.D. 325) and Theodosius (A.D. 380-381)banned in the fourth century, banned under the penalty of high treason against the state, are being dug up now and rediscovered, the ones which weren't burned, thanks to the so called evil Essenes and Gnostics who buried them to try to preserve them for future generations.


Is there anybody here who has got the time of day for the God, to love him with all of their heart, soul, mind, and strength, enough to face the scriptural facts about oneness versus threeness?  Would you like to see the scriptural facts?

ones who (hoitines) cause themselves to come (erchontai) to (pros) you (humas) in (en) clothing (endumasin) of sheep (probatōn), but (de) inwardly (esōthen) they are (eisin) rapacious (harpages) wolves (lukoi).


Here Jesus Christ is talking about only a very small subset of humanity, only those who are interested in following him, who are now known as Christians.  Jesus Christ is not referring to all others of mortalkind who couldn't give a damn about who Jesus may be.  They're not on either the wide way or the narrow way.  They have no clue about any way at all!  Jesus says to those desiring to follow him, "Enter in through the narrow gate ..."


From time to time in Bible study classes I've seen great questions asked about apparent contradictions in the texts to what is "accepted" Christian orthodoxy.  This is when everyone becomes exposed, as the teacher goes around the room, to the hundreds of little "one verse" theological theories about what can possibly be meant by them, which is usually something other than the simple meaning portrayed by the words themselves in the texts, because most everyone wants to say something theologically "acceptable", and get a pat on the back. 


For most people I've seen, it's by far easier for them to accept hundreds of little  one verse triune godhead theory aspects which don't connect together confluently, than to accept the possibility that what they believe in large part is not the same orthodoxy which Christ Jesus and his apostles actually preached and taught.  For most Christians I've known, they believe that, for the most part, God's Word has been deliberately designed by the God to be almost unintelligible.  They blame bad, obfuscated, nonsensical triune godhead-based English Bible passages on the God, absolutely not knowing, and refusing to believe,  that they are reading fudged translations! 


Subsequently, since they're absolutely not willing to humble themselves to the extent to consider that they may be wrong about their Bible being wrong, they can't go any further.  They've locked themselves into all of the theological confusion sculpted into their Bible that they can handle.  For some inexplicable reason, just because people see a black leather bound book which says "Holy Bible" on it, it doesn't cross their minds that other mortal men who produced it may have had theological agendas on their minds which do not agree with the orthodoxy of the prophets or apostles, and that the Bible in their hands simply dropped out of heaven one day like the manna in the old covenant records.  Exactly what is it, or what are the contributing factors, which are causing those wishing to follow Christ Jesus to end up on the wide way going to their own destruction (Mat. 7:13-14)It's obvious that those supposed followers of Christ Jesus who are on their way to destruction, are being taught and led into the way of destruction, as Jesus prophesied would occur.  How is the devil doing it?


 You may think, "How can so many people be fooled?"  All of Israel was fooled when Christ Jesus became flesh and dwelled among them!  Did you forget?  Corporately, no matter how much Christ Jesus preached and taught them, he couldn't convince Israel they were wrong, and he was the promised messiah, even him doing signs, miracles and wonders, accept for a few on the narrow way, going through the very narrow gate of the belief they chose to believe about him.  And finally he had to call it quits and let them kill him in order to bring in God's new covenant to a few of them in Israel who would believe, and  mostly to others outside of Israel. 


So what do you think about how the devil is doing it?  How is he causing those desiring to follow Jesus Christ to take the wide way to their own destruction, rather than take the narrow way to their own wholeness/salvation?  Could he possibly be doing it through the use of a new 4th century orthodoxy, which requires believers to worship the God's son as an equal to the highest God (Luke 1:32), which according to all scriptural evidence/facts is idolatry?  Or how about doing it through hugely fudged Bible translations, which collude together with the 4th century invented triune godhead orthodoxy, which orthodoxy requires people to worship the God's son, Christ Jesus, as an equal to his heavenly Father, the highest God (Luke 1:32)?



Is It Okay to Replace the Orthodoxy Which Christ Jesus and his Apostles Preached and Taught?


 Here's a quote of what apostle Paul wrote, and meant, reproving the believers in Galatia for beginning to wander away from the true orthodoxy of the God, which true orthodoxy was the preaching and teaching of Christ Jesus and his apostles: 


Gal. 1:6 (LIT/UBS4) I am amazed (thaumazō), because (hoti) thusly (houtōs), quickly (tacheōs) you are causing yourselves to be placed (metatithesthe) away from (apo) the one (tou) having called you aloud (kalesantos humas) in (en) [the] grace (charity) of Christ (Christou), into (eis) an evangelism (euangelion) of another kind2087 (heteron),


Gal. 1:7 (LIT/UBS4) of which (ho) [Evangelism, v6] there is (estin) absolutely not (ouk) another (allo)!


Oh, does that mean that there is no need for another evangelism/orthodoxy to be established in the 4th century by Constantine and his bishops and sees, or anyone?  Does that mean that the God got his orthodoxy correct the first time, which He taught to his son Christ Jesus, for him to preach it and teach it to his apostles, and everyone?


There are (eisin) some (tines), if (ei) not (mē) the ones (hoi) troubling (tarassontes) you (humas), desiring (thelontes) also (kai) to twist together (metastrepsai) the (to) Evangelism (euangelion) of the (tou) Christ (Christou).


Gal. 1:8 (LIT/UBS4) BUT (alla), if perhaps (ean) we (hēmeis) also (kai), or (ē) a messenger (angelos) out (ex) of heaven (ouranou) may cause itself to evangelize (euangelizētai) to you (humin) [an Evangelism, v7] beside (par’) that which (ho) we caused ourselves to evangelize (euēngelisametha) to you (humin), let him be (estō) a cursed-up one (anathema)!


Does that sound to you like apostle Paul expects another "authorized" evangelism or orthodoxy to come along to "fix" or replace the one he was preaching, the evangelism he was taught by revelation from Christ Jesus, the one which Christ Jesus was taught by revelation from his heavenly Father, the one true God almighty?


Gal. 1:9 (LIT/UBS4) As (hōs) we said before (proeirēkamen), and (kai) at this time (arti) again (palin) I say (legō), if (ei) anyone (tis) is causing himself to evangelize (euangelizetai) to you (humas) [anything] beside (par’) that which (ho) you received alongside (parelabete) [of us], let him be (estō) a cursed-up one (anathema)!


If anyone who evangelizes another evangelism, other than the one Christ Jesus preached and taught, is a cursed-up one by the God, then how about those who accept and believe a false evangelism?  Are they cursed-up by the God also?  Do you think, if you can, that believing a false evangelism brings God's great and precious promises to come to pass in your life (2 Pet. 1:4)?  This is what I mean by God damned.  I'm giving it to you fairly straight here.  Can you handle it?


Gal. 1:10 (LIT/UBS4) Because (gar) at this time (arti) do I persuade (peithō) mortals (anthrōpous), or (ē) the (ton) God (theon)?


Or (ē) do I search (zētō) to be agreeable (areskein) to mortals (anthrōpois)?


If (ei) yet (eti) I am being agreeable (ēreskon) to mortals (anthrōpois), perhaps (an) I am absolutely not still causing myself to be (ouk ēmēn) a slave (doulos) of Christ (Christou)!?


Gal. 1:11 (LIT/UBS4) Because (gar) I make known (gnōrizō) to you (humin), brothers (adelphoi), the (to) Evangelism (euangelion), the one (to) having been evangelized (euangelisthen) under (hup’) me (emou), that (hoti) it is absolutely not (ouk estin) down according to (kata) mortals (anthrōpon)!


For those of you who have just joined us, can you read the part of that last verse that is underlined, that the evangelism which Christ Jesus and all of his apostles taught, which apostle Paul also taught, was an evangelism absolutely not down according to mortals, such as is the triune godhead theology invented the 4th century and established by Constantine?  Can you read that?  I'm simply quoting apostle Paul in the Greek text of the new testament.  Can you read it too?  Apostle Paul states that he preached and taught an evangelism that was not invented by any mortals.  It came from God, to his son Christ Jesus, to apostle Paul.  But the Roman emperor god-man Constantine's triune godhead theology insists that God made a huge mistake, and He needed to be corrected.


Gal. 1:12 (LIT/UBS4) Because (gar) but absolutely not (oude) did I receive (egō parelabon) it (auto) alongside (para) of [a] mortal (anthrōpou), and absolutely neither (oute) was I taught (edidachthēn) [it, RE], BUT (alla), through (di’) [a] revelation (apokalupseōs) of Jesus (Iēsous) Christ (Christou)!


The Constantinian "Christian orthodoxy" established in the 4th century, and imposed upon the Donatists in Africa by his generals through the use of bloody spear points, declares the God, and his son Christ Jesus and Jesus' apostles to be liars; that the orthodoxy they preached and taught was not the true orthodoxy, that it was not the Word and Truth of God!  The imposition of the 4th century orthodoxy declares that Jesus' 1st century orthodoxy was corrupt and in error, because Jesus and his apostles didn't preach and teach a three-headed triune godhead scheme.  The omniscient Constantine and his scholars declare that their pagan triune godhead orthodoxy is the true Way, the Truth, and the Life, and absolutely not the orthodoxy which Christ Jesus and his apostles preached and taught (John 14:6)!


Apostle John wrote by revelation of Christ Jesus also (Rev. 1:1-2):


Rev. 1:1 (LIT/UBS4) A revelation (apokalupsis) of Jesus (Iēsou) Christ (Christou), which (hēn) the (ho) God (theos) gave (edōken) to him (autō) to thoroughly show (deixai) to the (tois) slaves (doulois) of him (autou) things which (ha) [are] necessary (die) to cause themselves to come to pass (genesthai) in (en) acceleration (tachei)


And (kai) it was signified (esēmanen), he having sent (aposteilas) [it] through (dia) the (tou) messenger (angelou) of him (autou), to the (tō) slave (doulō) of him (autou), John (Iōannē);


Rev. 1:2 (LIT/UBS4) who (hos) witnessed (emarturēsen) the (ton) Word (logon) of the (tou) God (theou), and (kai) the (tēn) witness (marturian) of Jesus (Iēsou) Christ (Christou), whatever things (hosa) he saw (eiden).


So then, is the Word of God, the witness of Jesus Christ, in error in apostle John's writings as well?  Apparently, according to many translators and translation committees, based upon most all "translations".  According to fudged translations the God and his son Christ Jesus were wrong in many places about the true orthodoxy which Christ Jesus witnessed to his slaves, his apostles! 


Apostle Peter wrote by revelation of Christ Jesus as well (2 Pet. 1:19-21):


2 Pet. 1:19 And (kai) we hold (echomen) the (ton) prophetic (prophētikon) Word (logon) [to be] foundational (bebaioteron);


The prophetic Word of God about the promised messiah Christ Jesus, the evangelism about him and the orthodoxy of his heavenly Father which he Taught, it is foundational, rock solid, set into bedrock!  That's what the Greek word bebaioteron means.  It is immovable, unalterable, unchangeable, not needing to be revised; that it's complete in and of itself, with no need for any addendums.  When the prophetic Word of the God is learned and believed it will produce the same supernatural results in anyone's life today, just as it was meant to do and has done at any time in history.  Only the true living Word of the God (John 6:63) will produce results, not a false one.


for which (hō) you do (poieite) beautifully (kalōs) paying attention to (prosechontes) [it] as (hōs) a lamp (luchnō) shining (phainonti) in (en) an obscure (auchmērō) place (topō);


 [paying attention to it] until (heōs) of which (hou) day (hēmera) it may reflect through (diaugasē), and (kai) [the] light-bearing one (phōsphoros) may rise up (anateilē) in (en) the (tais) hearts (kardiais) of you (humōn);


The orthodoxy which Christ Jesus and his apostles preached and taught made no mention of a triune godhead concept.  And Jesus' orthodoxy was foundational (bebaioteron), according to apostle Peter, an established orthodoxy which needed no further addendums, because it already worked just fine (Acts 2:38-41), because it was Truth.  The Roman emperor god-man Constantine and his "Christian" scholars and experts invented the triune godhead concept patterning it after virtually all other pagan religions already in existence on the face of the earth. 


Now Trinitarians believe and teach that their 4th century Constantinian triune godhead "orthodoxy" is the true "lamp" which everyone should follow.  Apostle Peter stated that following only the true "lamp" brings the light-bearing one, Christ Jesus, to rise up in a believer's heart, i.e., Christ in you (Col. 1:27), which is a new birth above in God's gift of his paternal Spirit, with the God and his son indwelling in a believer!


The imposition of the 4th century orthodoxy of Constantine declares that the almighty God must be a house divided against himself, since the 1st century orthodoxy with which He sent his son Christ Jesus to witness to us was, according to Constantine, in error and needed to be "fixed" by he and his omniscient pagan scholars.  The omniscient Roman emperor god-man Theodius and his "scholars" and "experts" claim that they invented the triune godhead scheme while being brought under the influence of holy Spirit, in order to fix the erroneous 1st century orthodoxy of Christ Jesus and his apostles, who while being brought under the influence of holy Spirit got it wrong in the first place! 



Is the Devil Using Constantinian Theologically Fudged Bible Translations?


No matter what is said by whom, the simple fact still remains: 


Virtually all English Bible translations are chocked full of theologically biased paraphrases and fake "synonyms" to inject the 4th century Constantinian "Christianity" invention into them.  The lack of Biblical scriptural evidence for Constantine's "Christianity" can be witnessed by anyone with enough desire to make an honest comprehensive comparison between the existing Greek texts of the Bible (I use the UBS4), word for word, observing and preserving all of the inflected forms, with virtually any existing "translation", English or otherwise.  This is what I call honest translation.


It's honest translation because it doesn't already presume anything before approaching the ancient texts.  And it's honest translation because it doesn't presume that God can't or won't teach those who simply read for themselves exactly what Jesus' apostles wrote.  And it's honest translation because it doesn't presume that what Christ Jesus and his apostles preached and taught was fundamentally in error, and needed to be "fixed" by an omniscient pagan Roman god-man emperor and infallible "scholars" and "experts" coming along in the 4th century.


Most all, about 99+%, of English Bible translations are produced by Trinitarian theology-based organizations.   Most all Bibles are literally Constantinian Bibles, because they've been fudged to reflect the Constantinian 4th century "orthodoxy" he imposed through an edict.  These various Bible producers inject their 4th century theological elements into their Bibles wherever they wish, to push a triune godhead concept, patterned after all pagan religions on earth.  They have hijacked and replaced the true orthodoxy of Jesus Christ and his apostles with what they believe it should be. 


Trinitarian Bible producers are not telling you they are doing this, using paraphrasing, creative "synonyming", and dozens of other subtle techniques to alter English Bible translations in various passages from what the Greek texts say, because they want the reader to believe that those "translation" alterations are what Jesus' apostles wrote!  How dishonest is that!? 



What Now? Trinitarian Translations Fudged For Monetary Reasons?


Jesus Christ and his apostles gave away almost everything they had and owned to everyone else around them who had needs, the poor ones, blind ones, lame ones, and others who couldn't work for themselves with their own two hands for their own personal needs.  Leaders of false Christianity pass the plates to collect money off of the backs of everyone else who is working, while leading their followers into believing that the old covenant of the Levitical priesthood is still in existence, which is why you should give your money to them to support them, instead of giving your money to the poor ones, blind ones, lame ones, and others who can't work for themselves with their own two hands for their own personal needs.


The LIT here at this website is free, and always will be, and so will be the LIT Glossary (LITG), the LIT Analytical Greek Lexicon (LITAGL), all of my personal studies, and all of the LIT Study Tools (LITST) which I've developed to help me side-step theologically-biased alterations of what Jesus' apostles wrote.   Jesus Christ taught his disciples and apostles, and thereby us, that we are absolutely not to sell the things of God for shameful gain (Mat. 10:8-10).  But that the knowledge of God's Word was to be given away to others freely, gratuitously, for no charge whatsoever (Luke 14:13-14; 3 John 1:5-7; Acts 8:18-20, 18:3, 20:33-35; 1 Cor. 4:12; 2 Cor. 2:17; Eph. 4:28; Tit. 1:10-11; 1 Thes. 4:9-12; 2 Thes. 3:8-12; 3 John 1:8; et al.)! 


Most all of the passages in English Bible translations which show Jesus and his apostles preaching and teaching this great Truth of giving away the knowledge of God's Word for free, no charge whatsoever, are changed in translation to replace, and/or eliminate, the exact non-ambiguous wording of the apostles with ambiguous "theological" paraphrases and false synonyms!  Please see my study Modern "Christianity" - The Selling Of God's Word, in which I present many examples of this.


Here's an example, one of thousands, of how passages of holy scripture are changed in English translations.  Almost all English translations change this verse, 2 Cor. 2:17, using paraphrases and fake synonyms, to create ambiguity in its meaning, to cause it to say almost anything except the word "selling", or "retailing" which is exactly what apostle Paul wrote and meant!  Get out your concordances, as many as you have, and your analytical Geek lexicons, and look up each word in this verse, word by word, so you can see for yourself how this verse is altered in English translations, in so many ways.  The Strong's number for the verb kapēleuontes is 2585.  The noun form kapelos, means a seller, or a huckster.


2 Cor. 2:17 (LIT/UBS4) Because (gar) we are (esmen) absolutely not (ou) as (hōs) many (polloi), ones selling (kapēleuontes) the (ton) Word (logon) of the (tou) God (theou)!


BUT (all’), as (hōs) out (ex) of clear judgment (eilikrineias), BUT (all’), as (hōs) out (ek) of God (theou), down opposite in front (katenanti) of God (theou), in (en) Christ (Christō) we speak (laloumen)!


Here's how other English translations have more or less changed the meaning of what apostle Paul actually wrote in 2 Cor. 2:17, the part which I've underlined above:


American Standard Version (ASV) - "corrupting the word of God"

Darby's Translation (Darby) - "make a trade of the word of God"

God's Word (GW) - "selling an impure word of God"

Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) - "market God's message for profit"

International Children's Bible (ICB) - "sell the word of God for a profit"

King James Version (KJV) - "corrupt the word of God"

New American Standard Bible (NASB) - "peddling the word of God"

New International Version (NIV) - "peddle the word of God for profit"

New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) - "adulterate the word of God"

New World Translation (NWT) - "peddling the word of the God"

Revised Standard Version (RSV) - "peddlers of God's word"

Wesley New Testament (WesleyNT) - "adulterate the word of God"

Weymouth New Testament (WEY) - "fraudulent hucksters of God's Message"

Young's Literal Translation (YLT) - "adulterating the word of God"


First of all, please notice how not one of these fourteen Bible translations would simply quote exactly what apostle Paul said, "ones selling (kapēleuontes) the (ton) Word (logon) of the (tou) God (theou)!"!  They had to change it into something more or less different!  They had to re-word it as if what apostle Paul said, and how he said it, wasn't good enough for them, or God, or Jesus Christ, or whomever!  The words and works of secular writers must be quoted right down to the commas and periods.  But what Christ Jesus said, and his apostles wrote, must not rank high enough in subject matter importance!


ASV - replaces Paul's word "selling" with a fake synonym, "corrupting", removing altogether the idea of selling God's Word for money.  It didn't cross those translator's minds that they were corrupting what apostle Paul wrote, through changing it?


Darby - replaces Paul's word "selling" with the very ambiguous clause "make a trade".


GW - correctly gets the idea of "selling" God's Word into its translation, but then adds the unscriptural idea that apostle Paul was talking somehow, someway, about an "impure" Word of God, a word which apostle Paul absolutely did not say, and an idea which he absolutely did not suggest.  The word "impure" is not in the Greek texts!  It's been added into the English translation.  Get ready!  This kind of alteration, of adding, or of changing, or of deleting words, is status quo.  And the translators of the GW expect and hope that the reader will believe it's what Christ's apostle actually wrote.  How dishonest is that?  Why not simply quote apostle Paul verbatim?  What's wrong with that?


HCSB - uses a paraphrase for a false "synonym of meaning", "market God's message for profit", which waters down Paul's meaning, when it would have been just as easy for the translators to quote Paul, "ones selling (kapēleuontes) the (ton) Word (logon) of the (tou) God (theou)".  And instead of quoting Paul's use of the word "Word", the translators must change it to "message".  And additionally, it adds the unscriptural idea that apostle Paul was talking somehow, someway, about making a profit from the sale, as if implying that it's okay to sell God's Word as long as you don't make a profit.  The word profit does not appear in the Greek text.  2 Cor. 2:17 says, and many other passages in God's Word, that God's Word is not to be sold, period; whether a profit is made, or break even, or loss.   


In the Greek texts Jesus Christ and his apostles mention no compromising stipulations or concessions about this, with the exception of one passage.  There is a passage in which apostle Paul accepted financial assistance once when he and his companions ran out of money on one of his itineraries.  But later he, using many apologetic words, apologizes, pays them back, and describes how he was in error for doing so (2 Cor. 11:7-9, 12:13-17).  Modern Christian leadership ignores this in the Greek texts, but prefers to quote their altered English translations instead. 


Again, here in this "translation", why isn't exactly what apostle Paul wrote good enough for the translators and Bible producers?  Do they know better what he should have said?  If they demand the right to read into, or add additional wordage into the verse in their English translation, why not then just leave that up to the reader's own imagination, instead of duping the reader into reading and believing their additional unscriptural wordage is what apostle Paul wrote?


ICB - correctly gets the idea of selling God's Word into its translation, but then, like the HCSB it adds the unscriptural idea that apostle Paul was talking somehow, someway, about making a profit from the sale, as if implying that it's okay to sell God's Word as long as you don't make a profit.


KJV - like the ASV, it replaces Paul's word "selling" with a fake synonym, "corrupt", removing altogether the idea of selling God's Word for money.  The KJV has had the greatest success of all Bibles ever sold in blocking from readers eyes the vital Truth that God's Word is not to be sold to make money off of Christ's shed blood.


NASB - along with the NWT both quote in this verse what apostle Paul actually said.  "Peddling" is probably equally as good of an English translation of the verb kapēleuontes as is "selling".


NIV - very close, but still ignores the participle inflected form of the verb, "peddling", to replace it with an indicative from, "peddle".  And like the HCSB and the ICB, the translators felt a need to obfuscate Paul's simple statement through adding the idea of profit, loss, or breakeven.  Again, why paraphrase?  What's wrong with what apostle Paul actually said, "ones selling (kapēleuontes) the (ton) Word (logon) of the (tou) God (theou)"?


NJB - corrupts their translation through replacing "ones selling" with "adulterate", similar to the way the ASV and the KJV abandon quoting apostle Paul, to steer the reader completely away from the idea of "selling" God's Word to the idea of corrupting it, which is absolutely not what apostle Paul wrote.


NWT - along with the NASB both quote, in this verse, what apostle Paul actually said.  "Peddling" is probably equally as good of an English translation of the verb kapēleuontes as is "selling".


RSV - comes close, but substitutes the noun  "peddlers" for the verb.   Again, why paraphrase?  What's wrong with what apostle Paul actually said, "ones selling (kapēleuontes) the (ton) Word (logon) of the (tou) God (theou)"?  Substituting a noun for verb isn't translation, it's private interpretation, as are all of these errors in translation. 


WesleyNT - similar to the ASV, the KJV and the NJB, its translators chose to eliminate the idea of "selling" or "peddling" God's Word, replacing it with the idea of "corrupting" or "adulterating" God's Word.  Again, completely removing the scriptural idea of "selling" God's Word from the reader's eyes.  Why will they not simply quote exactly what apostle Paul actually wrote?  Are they omniscient, and do they know better what apostle Paul should have wrote and meant?  No journalist would knowingly misquote Shakespeare.  But to these translators Christ Jesus and his apostles don't rank high enough!


WEY - replaces the verb meaning "selling" or "peddling" with the noun phrase "fraudulent hucksters", which again is another erroneous paraphrase because it obfuscates apostle Paul's simple and clear meaning of "ones selling (kapēleuontes) the (ton) Word (logon) of the (tou) God (theou)".  Paul's simple and clear meaning excludes any kind of huckstering, whether fraudulent or not, with no exceptions.  Additionally, Paul wrote "Word (logon)", not "message".  Again, why paraphrase at all?


YLT - similar to the ASV, the KJV, the NJB and the WesleyNT, the translator(s) felt the need to replace the idea of "selling" or "peddling" God's Word with the unscriptural idea (in this verse) of "adulterating" God's Word.  Selling and adulterating are two entirely different ideas.  Obviously one of them is absolutely not what apostle Paul actually said.  "Adulterate" God's Word is exactly what the YLT does to 2 Cor. 2:17, and what most all of these translations do to God's Word in this verse, with the exceptions of the NASB and the NWT, which translations come the closest to simply quoting exactly what apostle Paul wrote. 


What? Isn't what Christ Jesus said, and what his apostles wrote, rank high enough in subject matter importance to merit simply quoting what they wrote?  What?  He and they don't deserve that much respect, which is adamantly given to secular writers?


All of these kinds of subtle, and not so subtle, alterations in English Bible translations, thousands of them, alterations away from what the apostles actually wrote, is how Trinitarian-based Bible translations introduce the readers to the 4th century Constantinian "Christian orthodoxy" that was invented then, to replace the true orthodoxy which Christ Jesus and his apostles preached, taught, and wrote.  History records that under Constantine's rule a new kind of three-headed god paganism was blended with Christian monotheism so the plate could be passed to both pagans and Christians simultaneously!  Constantine, who may have claimed to be a Christian, which is not clear, still went on for years murdering, stealing and destroying, as if nothing in his life changed, except carrying a crosss now everywhere he went. We're left wondering why he dramatically stream-linded the process of passing the plate to everyone, both pagans and claimed Christians, simultaneously, and under the roofs of his new "approved" meeting buildings. 


In another passage, 3 John 1:8, Darby changes the verse to say "we ought to receive such", and the GW says, "we must support believers who go on trips", and the NASB says, "we ought to support such men", rather than simply "we (hēmeis) owe (opheilomen) to undertake (hupolambanein) the things (tous) of these (toioutous)", as apostle John actually wrote. 


The debt owed, according to the context, is the doing of good works freely for others in need, and giving the knowledge of God's Word freely, out of love (v7).  Some religious leaders really love the fudging of 3 John 1:8, because it's used to finance their "outreach" trips, and because that's another one of the verses used by them to make a paycheck from you, selling you God's Word, selling you Christ's shed blood, every Sunday when they pass the plate to you!  They're not giving you God's Word freely, as Jesus Christ commanded his disciples (Mat. 10:8-9).



The LIT?  Who Would Want to Read Such a Thing?


While attending my father's funeral one of the attendees approached me to offer his condolences.  Previously he and his female companion were pointed out to me and I was informed that they were friends of some of my family, and they attended a church with them.  During our conversation he asked me what I do.   Since I study and translate the new testament Greek texts of the Bible daily, I told him I translate the Greek biblical texts for a living, but not for money.  I told him I'm creating the world's first English translation of the new testament of the Bible which simply quotes the ancient writers.  his immediate response to me was, "Who would want to read such a thing?" 


I was appalled at his answer, since I never expected such a question from a self-proclaimed Christian, someone who supposedly loves the God our heavenly Father with all of his heart, soul, mind and strength, but yet doesn't give a damn about exactly what did Christ Jesus and his apostles actually preach and teach.  My reply to him was, "Anyone who cares to know exactly what the God has actually said!" 


When I went on to inform him how I have discovered that virtually all English Bible translations are chocked full of mortal-made theological alterations from what the ancient writers actually wrote, he was in total denial that that could possibly be true!  Apparently he's always taken it for grated that any Bible he may read, although they all somewhat disagree with one another in many, many passages, is the Word of the God, exactly as the prophets and apostles wrote it in the ancient biblical texts.  How naive can anyone be who supposedly cares so much about loving the God, verifying their own wholeness/salvation.  There's a very good reason why Christianity indirectly and tacitly teaches its followers to stay simple and ignorant.  What do you think that reason may be?


He, like most everyone, ones who are still ignorant of church history, the battles over orthodoxy, ignorant of Constantine, Arius and Athanasius, Theodosius, is too afraid to peek behind the curtain; to discover who is really responsible in history for throwing the levers and flipping the switches which superficially determines what he believes.  He would rather stay blissfully ignorant than discover that much of what he believes of Christianity is made up of mostly mortal-made religious theories, which were invented subsequent to when and what the biblical writers, the prophets and apostles of Jesus, actually wrote.  He doesn't dare take a chance on discovering how much of the orthodoxy he believes has actually come out of mortal-made, religious, theological inventions. 


It seems like the older people get the harder it is for them to question their own beliefs, and then be willing to check and see if they may have gotten something wrong along the way (John 8:7-9).  I find this to be true especially for teachers and preachers who have spent their whole lives leading people into the knowledge and understanding of Constantinian Christianity.  The suggestion that a clean quote translation of the new covenant texts clearly presents a dramatically different orthodoxy than the triune godhead one invented in the 4th century, is horrifying to them.  What's especially horrifying to them is that if they dared to look closely at the texts themselves, those things they believe may not be true Christian orthodoxy at all!  And this realization would lead them to the next realization, that they are now personally responsible to God for preaching and teaching their entire lives to others things which are mortal-made lies, in place of the truth of God's Word! 



The Subjects About Which the Triune Godhead Proponents Keep Their Followers Ignorant


From my conversations with many other Christians, virtually everyone's response to me is the same, an exclamatory denial that Bibles can't possibly be fudged, that they can't possibly be anything other than a quote of the ancient writers.  This indicates to me how Constantinian Christianity deliberately keeps its followers ignorant of church history, and of pagan theologies believed throughout the world, throughout time, and of the true Christian orthodoxy which was in place for about three hundred years before the Roman emperor god-man Constantine's new orthodoxy was established in the 4th century.


I don't see how anyone can claim to be a disciple of Jesus Christ, a learner, but yet be so adamant in excuse-making to stay ignorant.  True discipleship to Christ Jesus must include learning in at least the following three categories of learning, which are generally considered too "deep" to be approached on the layman's level, such as in Sunday school or weeknight Bible study classes.  These subjects are way to vast and deep to be stripped down, condensed, and adequately fitted into a one hour time slot.


1.  A comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the history of both the old and new covenants, their origins and purposes;


2.  A comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the history of the Christian church throughout the last two thousand years, especially including the knowledge of mortal-made invented theological theories, many of which have come and gone;


3. A comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the history of the Biblical texts, those related to both the old and new covenants, and other Biblically-related texts as well.


I consider myself as still being on a never ending upward curve of leaning in all of these areas.  To me, all of the categories mentioned in systematic theology books of issues specific to Judeo-Christian monotheism fall into these three main categories. 


What? There's no scriptural evidence in the writings of the prophets or apostles to support a triune godhead concept?  Where's the nomenclature for it and its associated terminology?  Virtually all of the triune godhead nomenclature and its associated terminology is extra Biblical.  It's not in the Hebrew and Greek texts.  It's just not in there!  Much of it was invented in the late 3rd and early 4th centuries.  That fact, in and of itself, should be very telling to anyone who may wonder if they're loving God with all of their heart, soul, mind, and strength, and if they're actually believing the God's Word, or someone else's.


The ancient writers of the Biblical texts couldn't have had a triune godhead mindset, based upon the complete lack of evidence of its associated terminology in the writings of the ancient Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible.  That's why it must be fudged into "translations" through the use of paraphrasing and creative "synonyming".  This is why the LIT, which simply quotes the ancient writers, is completely devoid of any triune godhead references and associated terminology whatsoever. 


There is no "three in one", "triune", "incarnation", "God-man", "God the son", "co-equal", and so on, terminology used by any of the old covenant or new covenant writers.  Nor are there any references to a "godhead" of some kind, even though that word is fudged into Bible translations three times (Acts 17:29; Rom. 1:20; Col. 2:9) in the Authorized Version to replace the meaning of what writers actually wrote, to force Luke and apostle Paul who wrote those verses appear to refer to the triune godhead theological invention.


In Acts 17:29 godhead is fudged into the translation for the Greek word theion, which word is an adjective, which simply means Godly one; a reference to the God not being a mortal-made idol of some kind, which idols are definitely not godly.  The whole context is about God's judgment of mortalkind, especially his judgment over the sake of those practicing idolatry.  The concept of a triune godhead thrown into the midst of the context stands out as very incongruous.  Apostle Luke is writing about the Godly one, God himself, not being an idol, not about a godhead not being an idol, which idols are ungodly.


In Rom. 1:20 godhead is fudged into the translation for the Greek word theiotēs, which word is a noun, which simply means godliness; in reference to the great inherent power and vast diversity of the creation of the God.  Again, the concept of a triune godhead thrown into the midst of the context stands out as very incongruous.  Apostle Paul is writing about the power of the God to create all the things we see in the heavens and earth, about his power of creation, his power of creation being an evidential witness of his godliness, not a witness to a godhead of some kind. 


Yes, the Word, before it became flesh, did assist the God in his creation, since the Word, being the first messenger he created, was created for that specific purpose.  But that in no way implies a godhead of some kind, and especially not a trinity of a creative force, since there is absolutely no scriptural evidence that the holy Spirit is someone other than the one true God himself, on account of holy Spirit being used by the apostles throughout the holy scriptures simply to describe the God's state of being (1 Cor. 15:35-54, especially verses 44-46), as being a spirit-based being as opposed to a mortal, a soul-based, fleshly being.


In Col. 2:9 godhead is fudged into the translation for the Greek word theotētos, which word is a noun, which simply means godliness; in reference to the fulness of the Spirit-based being who is the God, homing-down in the soul-based being who was Jesus Christ; one being living inside of another being, co-habitating together in a "symbiotic" relationship.  Sunoikodomeō, Strong's # 4925, meaning built together into a domed-roof house, is the word used by the apostles to refer to our co-habitation with the one true God through the gift of his Spirit in us.  Again, the concept of a triune godhead thrown into the midst of the context stands out as very incongruous.  Apostle Paul is writing about the mystery of Godliness, about how the created being (Col. 1:15), the Word, came to become filled with all of the godliness of the one true God.  In this context apostle Paul writes about a created messenger becoming chosen by the one true God to receive a new birth above in God's gift of his paternal Spirit, which birth occurred after the Word volunteered to become flesh (Mat. 3:16; Mark 1:10; Luke 3:22; John 1:32), to become God's promised redeemer (John 1).  The God didn't home-down in a godhead, but He homed-down in his paternally firstborn son Christ Jesus, who was the created being/messenger the Word, on account of the Word, Jesus Christ, pleased his God, who then became his heavenly Father.


If there was any kind of triune godhead-related terminology in the Greek texts I would simply quote it into the LIT, so that I can remain pleasing to the God in his sight!  But I can't fudge this adjective and these nouns into the English word godhead, ignoring the real meanings of the words.  All of the ancient writers wrote about their own beliefs in the God and his son Christ Jesus, using the terminology they understood from the evangelism they heard, which evangelism and its associated terminology was faithfully passed down to them.  What "theological" beliefs they wrote about using that terminology, is now considered the "old orthodoxy", and considered heresy, since the adoption of Constantine's new "orthodoxy", the mortal-made triune godhead theological theory established in the 4th century. 


In A.D. 325 Constantine, a Roman emperor who claimed himself to be a god, imposed a new triune godhead "orthodoxy" upon the world, about three hundred years after almost three thousand people received salvation/wholeness  on the day of Pentecost in Jerusalem, in about A. D. 30 (Acts 2:41).  Those believers who believed the "old orthodoxy" which Christ Jesus and his apostles taught, which "old orthodoxy" Constantinian Christianity now considers to be heresy, received a new birth above in God's gift of his holy Spirit about three hundred years before the mortal-made triune godhead theological theory was invented!  Christ Jesus said that he had set in place the way of salvation for all mortalkind before his ascension, through his own shed blood and death (John 17:4, 19:30)!  Apostle Paul praised the Corinthian believers for keeping the teaching and its traditional beliefs and practices he taught to them, without charge, which was the "old orthodoxy" (1 Cor. 4:17, 11:2; 2 Pet. 3:15-16)!


The terminology the scriptural writers used is the terminology they were taught, which as far as we know was taught by Jesus Christ and his apostles, which was initially taught to Jesus Christ himself by his heavenly Father, the one true God almighty (John 17:8).  The terminology of the "old orthodoxy" still exists in the copies of the ancient Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible, for anyone to see, but which orthodoxy and terminology the pagan emperor Constantine abandoned in the 4th century, since he considered himself to be an omniscient god, as did many Roman emperors. 


The Godly terms of the "old orthodoxy", and the associated theological ideas they portray, are dramatically revealed in the LIT.  Modern English Trinitarian-based translations, in effect, subordinate the one true highest God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ to Constantine, through adopting his theological redefinition of Christianity, the "new orthodoxy" of a three-headed God!  Who do you think is correctly presenting the truth of the God's Word about the wholeness/salvation of all mortalkind, all of God's ancient prophets, his son Christ Jesus and his apostles, or Constantine?  Virtually all Christianity today worships Constantine's established three-headed god, which invention has been patterned after all other pagan three-headed god religions.


If for the first three plus centuries of the history of the Christian church the "new orthodoxy" didn't exist, at least in the minds of the ancient scriptural writers, then what exactly was preached and taught as the "old orthodoxy", the foundational truth for a believer's belief and practice?  Exactly what were, or still are, the theological contents, down into minute detail, of the "old orthodoxy"?  This is the true Christianity for which I am searching, and this is what I'm discovering with the production of the LIT!  I'm discovering the Christianity taught in the first century by Christ Jesus and his apostles, discovering it word by word and line by line as I produce the LIT, through simply quoting the ancient writers of the new testament Greek texts of the Bible!


The ancient writers of the Greek texts of the Bible didn't use any terminology associated with any particular theological theory, especially the triune godhead theory.  And even some of the "old orthodoxy" terminology the ancient scriptural writers used has since been hijacked by denominationalism, which has redefined the meanings of many of those terms.  The ancient writers used terminology which presented and explained the Evangelism of Jesus Christ (Mark 1:1), which evangelism was spread throughout the world through the Ministry of Reconciliation, as apostle Paul refers to it (2 Cor. 5:18-19). 


The terminology the ancient writers used to describe their belief in Christ Jesus and his Father, the one true God almighty, has nothing in common whatsoever with the invented triune godhead-associated terminology of the 4th century, but in fact contradicts it over and over.


What Constantinian Christianity now calls heresy, the "old orthodoxy", apostle Paul says he was taught it from Christ Jesus himself!


Gal. 1:7 (LIT/UBS4) There are (eisin) some (tines), if (ei) not (mē) the ones (hoi) troubling (tarassontes) you (humas), desiring (thelontes) also (kai) to twist together (metastrepsai) the (to) Evangelism (euangelion) of the (tou) Christ (Christou).


Gal. 1:8 (LIT/UBS4) BUT (alla), if perhaps (ean) we (hēmeis) also (kai), or (ē) a messenger (angelos) out (ex) of heaven (ouranou) may cause itself to evangelize (euangelizētai) to you (humin) [anything] beside (par’) that which (ho) we caused ourselves to evangelize (euēngelisametha) to you (humin), let him be (estō) a cursed-up one (anathema)!


Gal. 1:9 (LIT/UBS4) As (hōs) we said before (proeirēkamen), and (kai) at this time (arti) again (palin) I say (legō), if (ei) anyone (tis) is causing himself to evangelize (euangelizetai) to you (humas) [anything] beside (par’) that which (ho) you received alongside (parelabete) [of us], let him be (estō) a cursed-up one (anathema)!


Gal. 1:10 (LIT/UBS4) Because (gar) at this time (arti) do I persuade (peithō) mortals (anthrōpous), or (ē) the (ton) God (theon)?


Or (ē) do I search (zētō) to be agreeable (areskein) to mortals (anthrōpois)?


If (ei) yet (eti) I am being agreeable (ēreskon) to mortals (anthrōpois), perhaps (an) I am absolutely not still causing myself to be (ouk ēmēn) a slave (doulos) of Christ (Christou)!?


Gal. 1:11 (LIT/UBS4) Because (gar) I make known (gnōrizō) to you (humin), brothers (adelphoi), the (to) Evangelism (euangelion), the one (to) having been evangelized (euangelisthen) under (hup’) me (emou), that (hoti) it is absolutely not (ouk estin) down according to (kata) mortals (anthrōpon)!


Gal. 1:12 (LIT/UBS4) Because (gar) but absolutely not (oude) did I receive (egō parelabon) it (auto) alongside (para) of [a] mortal (anthrōpou), and absolutely neither (oute) was I taught (edidachthēn) [it, RE], BUT (alla), through (di’) [a] revelation (apokalupseōs) of Jesus (Iēsous) Christ (Christou)!


A very brief comparison is this: 


Christ Jesus' orthodoxy preaches, teaches, and emphasizes a new covenant-based "spiritual church", Christ's one body of believers, of which Christ Jesus himself is the one and only true "head" of his church, and not the Pope. 


The Constantinian Christian "orthodoxy" maintains the old covenant-based earthly and physical "church" system, a system of earthly temples run by a Levitical-like priesthood having bishops and popes, about which Christ Jesus and his apostles never spoke or wrote.


Apostle Peter wrote that the one and only episcopate (Gk., episkopon) of our souls was not himself, but the ascended Christ Jesus (1 Pet. 2:21-25)!  Just because Christ has ascended doesn't mean he is no longer our one and only head of his one body, our one and only episcopate! 


Translators have erroneously translated this Greek word episkopos as bishop.  That's not what it meant in the first century.  It was later hijacked by Constantinian Christianity, and the English word bishop was assigned to it in Bible translations for the sake of perpetuating an invented earthly church organization, which of course needs earthly bishops.  There are apostle, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers in Christ one body, no bishops.


Apostle Paul wrote to us to inform us as to what is the God-designed hierarchy in the one body of Christ, which knowledge was given to him by revelation of Jesus Christ (Gal. 1:12):


1 Cor. 11:1 (LIT/UBS4) Cause yourselves to become (ginesthe) imitators (mimētai) of me (mou), down according to as (kathōs) I also (kagō) [cause myself to become an imitator] of Christ (Christou).


1 Cor. 11:2 (LIT/UBS4) But (de) I praise (epainō) you (humas), because (hoti) of all things (panta) you have caused yourselves to be in remembrance (memnēsthe) of me (mou), and (kai) you hold down (katechete) the (tas) traditions (paradoseis) down according to as (kathōs) I passed [them] along (paradoseis) to you (humin).


1 Cor. 11:3 (LIT/UBS4) But (de) I desire (thelō) you (humas) to have seen (eidenai) that (hoti) the (hē) head (kephalē) of every (pantos) male (andros) is (estin) the (ho) Christ (Christo).


But (de) [the] head (kephalē) of a female (gunaikos), [is] the (ho) male (anēr).


But (de) [the head] of the (tou) Christ (Christou) [is] the (ho) God (theos)!


See also Eph. 1:22, 4:15, 5:23; Col. 1:18, and many more, you find them.


Likewise, there is no mention of a pope of some kind anywhere in the new covenant writings of Jesus Christ's apostles.  This hierarchy apostle Paul describes, of the true orthodoxy of Christ Jesus, didn't need to be "fixed" by the omniscient god-man Constantine and his biships and see, and "scholars" and "experts" in the 4th century! 


The devil will always make sure that there is a "good" reason, or two, or hundreds, for the Truth of God's revelation to mortalkind about his son Christ Jesus and his new covenant, the "old orthodoxy", to be labeled as a heresy (Acts 24:14), like the devil managed to have it labeled in the first century under the Judean "church" leadership (John 8), and then have it re-labeled again in the 4th century under Constantine!  The warnings about this were given to us to ponder (Mat. 15:9; John 8:31-47; Rom. 1:21-22; 2 Cor. 10:5-6; 11:13-15; Eph. 5:6-12; *Col. 2:8; 2 Tim. 3:1-15, 4:3-4; Tit. 1:10-14)!


The LIT simply quotes Jesus' apostles, who wrote about the true orthodoxy of Christ Jesus which he taught them, and which he sent them to establish (2 Pet. 1:19-21)!  The evangelism of Christ Jesus, his orthodoxy, and God's new covenant which Jesus put through for us in his own blood, did not then, and still do not now, need to be fixed, or replaced, as if they are in error in any way!
