Jesus was very serious when He warned us, “Beware of false [prophets/teachers,] who come to you [as angels of light, 2 Cor. 11:14.] You will know them by their [constant behavior] or fruit, [as we can all make mistakes, which reveals their real characters.]" Here, Jesus was actually talking about people who “are inwardly ravenous wolves” because it is their character to deceive.] Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes? ... [it is the character of thorn bushes to bear thorns.] A bad tree cannot bear good fruit.” What the clergy teach might seem like good fruit, but unless that fruit is “tested” in the light of God’s contextual Word and the context of the whole situation, (1 Ths. 5:21,) we might realize forever too late that what we accepted as “good fruit,” was really poisonous fruit that looked good. 

Do not think a single unrepentant false teaching is something to overlook. Jesus warned that a little "leaven [or false teaching] leavens the whole lump." Keeping their “churches” intact with false dogmas and strange spiritual manifestations, (not the gathering of true believers the “ecclesia,” but a physical, unbiblical system,) every pastor, minister, prophet or preacher that belongs to them, suffer from the dangerous spiritual ‘disease’ of double-mindedness. 

This is why Jesus warned, “…Consider carefully how to hear. For whoever has [real truth] to him more will be given; and whoever does not have [real truth,] even what he seems to have will be taken from him,” (Lu. 8:18.) 
Jesus is The Truth; it is inconceivable that He will bless and use lies and the twisting of His Word, and tie His believers to a false church system to save, redeem, and bless them. Make no mistake: none of us can remain “unequally yoked” with darkness and survive and grow in the Light of God. 2 Cor. 6:14, “…What fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion has the Light with darkness?” 

“But they do preach truth!” some might say. Indeed, they might preach some truth – but mingling Jesus’ truth with lies is a deadly deception. Our enemy the devil never does anything good without the intention of using it for bad. As he was once a holy angel who turned himself into the unholy devil, he knows all about good and evil. It is his twisted character to turn truth into lies, and once we accept his lies, to deceive us. Adam and Eve fell from glory after disobeying God only once, that terrible day when they mingled His truth with lies and became dreadfully deceived. Heb. 3:15-19 warns us, “Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion… and their corpses fell in the wilderness…” We live by grace, but we definitely do not have the freedom to sin unrepentantly, (Rom. 6:1-14.) 


One of the iconic old preachers, whose sermons are quoted the most as truth, is the evangelist Leonard Ravenhill.  And as all his friends and followers, he spoke some truth. But let us never forget that not a single clergyman from whichever denomination will speak the whole truth of the Bible, because they are all sworn to teaching the dogmas of their churches. This is the reason why I turned my back on the “church” after my studies were done. I was never willing to deceive people to keep a paid or honoured position in an unbiblical church system.

For example. As seen in Spiritual Schizophrenia or double-mindedness, Ravenhill spoke the absolute truth when he said, “People say, ‘I am a saved sinner.’ But that is like saying you are a married bachelor, an honest thief, or a pure harlot. You can't be a saved sinner. You are either saved or you are a sinner….” He was right. Salvation, redemption, blessing, and holiness constitute a position inside the Spiritual Kingdom of God when true believers are called from darkness into God’s light, (1 Pt. 2:9-10.) We make ourselves unholy when we sin unrepentantly. That must not be so, (Jam. 4:4.) 
Did Ravenhill mean it like that? I certainly hope so, but I don’t think so. Ravenhill taught, “One thing and one thing alone keeps us from complete decay in this hour - the church, the true Church.” 

What did Ravenhill mean by saying the “true Church keeps Christians from decay?” The entire church system is just as corrupt as her “mother,” the Roman Catholic Church. I know only of the True ‘Ecclesia’ or assembly of sincere believers, which was omitted by Bible translators to force the ‘church’ system into Scripture. However, even die 'ecclesia' or true assembly cannot keep us holy, saved, redeemed, or blessed. 

Concerning what Ravenhill stated, this is what the Word of God teaches, “To Him [Jesus] Who is able to keep you from stumbling… To God our Savior, Who Alone is wise, be glory and majesty...” The “church” is not the savior, redeemer, or preserver. Again, we are talking about two completely different ways.  Two completely different gospels, which lead to “another Jesus, and a different spirit,” (2 Cor. 11:4.) 

It cannot be both. It is either the path of manmade religion, “the church system,” or it is Jesus Himself, the True Word of God: The Truth, Way, Light, and Life. 

Yet, the “church” mindset or rather illness was so deeply ingrained into all church members, they simply cannot or will not see that the “church” is dead religion, which leads away from Jesus, The Living Water and The Bread from Heaven. 


Still, Ravenhill, like all his “church” comrades, continued, “Men build our churches but do not enter them.. print Bibles but do not read them… sing our hymns and then forget them.” Jesus, in Mt. 7:13-14, forbade us to enter into the “broad way” of temple or church religion, sacramental ‘salvation,’ or the gradual (pagan) ‘initiation’ into church membership, (i.e. baby ‘baptism’ and 'teenage confirmation.’) Jesus commanded, “Enter through the Narrow Gate… [Jesus Himself… where] there are few who find it.” 

Nevertheless, even from his grave, Ravenhill is still teaching people to enter into “the broad way which leads to destruction, [because it’s about church numbers, not salvation,] where many go in by it,” as Jesus said. 

What’s more, believers must not compare Bible truth to “singing church hymns and remember them” in an attempt to benefit them spiritually, as Ravenhill taught. God commanded in 2 Tim. 2:14-16, “Remind them of these things, charging them before the Lord not to strive about [man made] words to no profit, to the ruin of the hearers. But be diligent to present yourself approved to God, [not to earn anything from Him, but to grow in knowledge and in grace in Him, Jude 1:20,] a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing [or understanding and implementing] the Word of Truth. [Obedience to this is necessary to be able to] “shun profane and idle babblings [like this quote from Ravenhill,] because they will increase to more ungodliness, [just like the beginning of the Pentecostal Movement is now getting lost in chaotic Christianity through the Charismatic Movement.]

Even more disturbing, Ravenhill wrote, “One of these days some simple soul will pick up the Book of God, read it, and believe it. Then the rest of us will be embarrassed. We have adopted the convenient theory that the Bible is a Book to be explained, whereas first and foremost it is a Book to be believed..." This man was really saying, none of them have “read and believed the Bible" because it must allegedly "not be explained even before we accept Jesus, but just mindlessly believed!” What a great deception to get church members not to understand what Jesus said in the Word – no doubt, so that they can believe everything the clergy tells them according to their church doctrines! Today, building on this deception of their church father, evangelical offspring like Rodney Howard Brown dangerously teach, “Don’t read the Bible, BE the Bible!” 

Concerning this blasphemy, Jesus plainly explained His parable of the sower as follows. Mt. 13:18-23, “When anyone hears the Word… and does not understand it, the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart… He who received seed on the good ground is he who hears and understands the Word, who [then is able to] indeed bear fruit and produce [loving service to God according to personal ability:] some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.” 


These are just a few examples of how church clergy place their disease of Spiritual Schizophrenia or double mindedness onto their followers.  But everyone that confesses the Name of Jesus is dear to Him and to everyone who truly belongs to Him.  Therefore, I cannot warn Jesus’ blood-bought believers more seriously.  By God's grace, I have been studying God’s Word in the context of “all truth” for 30 years now.  Nearly every time someone brings a church dogma to my attention, I “test” it according to the full truth of God’s Word. To my great dismay, what I find in every instance is twisted truth that is extremely false – although untested, it might sound like truth. 

This is why I urge you all in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ to not only read the Bible (the New Testament especially, and then the Old Testament from Jesus’ New Covenant perspective,) but to study the Word. Ask God for “all truth,” and search for “all truth” until you really understand what is written. Our spiritual lives are our personal responsibility, (Jude 1:20.) Giving heed to “how we hear [and read and see]” must be one of our highest priorities in life.
