Do you know what you believe
Do you know what you believe and why you believe it?
Cause for concern
Everyone makes mistakes. Nobody's perfect.
But if someone deliberately lied about almost everything they told people about their life, in order to look like someone they are not... is this not cause for concern?
To fabricate stories, and use them as vindication for oneself...is this not disturbing?
Then to have people justify those lies and deceptions, by comparing them to Abraham's ONE half-truth, doesn't make any sense at all.
An Old Testament prophet?
It's very presumptuous to take a Scripture out of context (from the book of Malachi - whose message was clearly to Israel) and apply it to the Gentiles in order to declare oneself an OT prophet.
The Bible makes it plain in Luke 16:16 that the law and prophets ended with John.
Greater than Jesus?
To take a Scripture in Luke-that was quite obviously referring to Jesus-and apply it to oneself, (declaring your ministry GREATER than that of Jesus) should certainly set off an alarm.
Claiming to be an angel?
To take a Scripture in Revelations (which was speaking about an Angelic being) and claim to be that angel, seems incredibly risky.
To insist on being a self-proclaimed 'prophet' which by definition means somebody who predicts the future yet have NO prophecies foretold, (but all 'prophecies' mentioned AFTER the fact) should definitely raise questions.
Commands of a diety?
The other definition of prophet isSomebody who claims to interpret or transmit the commands of a Deity. For one to claim exclusive rights to interpret Scripture and express the mind of God, (yet continuously lie and take Scriptures out of context ) obviously does not fit that description.
If people are repeatedly told to ONLY BELIEVE... yet you are encouraged to believe lies, deception, and misrepresentation of Scripture... does this not raise a red flag?
Who are we?
We are not Message haters, nor do we despise the 'messenger'. We simply want answers to these disturbing questions.
