The “church” is leavened with false doctrine. Mat 16:11, Luk 12:1 The “church” has conformed to the world (Rom 12:2). People go to “church”, not to worship the Lord, but expecting to be entertained, not to seek the Lord, but to be told what they want to hear. Not sound doctrine, but fairly tales and fables that tickle their ears. 1 Ti 1:4, 4:7, 2 Ti 4:3-4, Tit 1:14
Think about it, you go, you hear a paid hireling teach you doctrines that are mainly designed to get you to give more money, and to cause you to see the “church” as indispensable to your salvation. They tell you what to think about the Bible, they tell you what the Bible means. Even when you “study” your Bible it is with their preconceived notions to accept it the way they want you to. If you forfeit the right to read and study the Word of God for yourself, you are a prime candidate to be led astray. Beware of false prophets (Mat 7:15), whose doctrines are leavened, we have been warned so many times. If you really studied the Bible for yourselves (2 Ti 2:15), if you put what you are being told up against what the Bible actually says, you'd realize that it is the opposite of what the Lord Jesus taught.
Once the “church” becomes a part of the world and turns from every member of the flock participating in edifying the entire body, into an organization where there is a paid leader and a hierarchy, then it has to justify itself. Like a standing army has to justify its reason for being, and its bloated budget, like a Child Protective Services agency that has to show it is needed, and protecting children, by taking children away from parents unjustly in far too many cases.
On so many levels the “church” of today is the antitheses of what the Lord wants from His disciples. The greatest task He gave us is to go and make disciples of all the world (Mat 28:19-20). Instead the “church” says come to us and be like us, seeking personal gain. What gain is that to the Kingdom of God? Indeed, it is loss.
From worshiping the country you live in, to money, to the satanic entity falsely known as Israel, the “church” has fallen, their hearts are far far away from the Lord. As for my family and me, we had to come out of it (Rev 18:4). We miss the fellowship and sense of belonging, but to stay would be an insult to the Lord, this we cannot do, no matter how the loneliness and sense of isolation bothers us at times. Mat 6:24. Luk 16:13, 2 Th 2:3, Isa 29:13, Mat 15:7-9
From the earliest apostles criss-crossing the countryside on foot, ragged, hungry and being beaten and jailed for preaching the Good news, to today's millionaire televangelists flying in private jets, staying in luxury hotel suites, filling sports arenas and concert halls by enticing their listeners to lust after wealth, give to me and you can have this too. A huge pyramid scheme, a disgrace. The "church" has fallen far away from God.
Some reading this will say, that's not me, or us, not our “church”, and that may be, but the same spirit of conforming to the world is there (Rom 12:2). The same lusting after the things of the world (1 Jo 2:15-17). the same division and strife, thousands of different denominations. Attempting to entertain the audience so they'll come back, not offend them for their lifestyle, or their lukewarm attitude (Rev 3:15-16), unless it's because the donations are down. The you'll hear fire and brimstone teachings about how you're stealing from God, or something along those lines, lies, lies and more lies. 2 Cor 9:7
You have to read your Bible yourself, cleanse your mind of the preconceived notions the paid hirelings have brainwashed you with. Read the Words in Red, everything else must line up with that, or you are not in the Will of God.
Think of yourselves as alcoholics or drug addicts trying to recover, in this case it's not drugs, but man-made traditions that are the enemy, it's the traditions you're addicted to. In order to recover you'll have to make radical changes. Just as the alcoholic has to stay away from wet faces and places, or the drug addict doesn't hang out with their “buddies” they used to get high with, the recovering church/traditions of men addict has to stay away from the people who who used to pat you on the back for going to “church”. “There's brother so and so and sister such and such, God bless you, you are so good and faithful to come every Sunday, blah blah blah”. Add another coat of self-righteousness (Mat 6:5). Am I offending you yet? Probably; you may be thinking “I am not a drug addict or an alcoholic”. Right, you are worse, they will get into the kingdom before you will (Mat 21:31). If you are still going to the 501c3 Harlot “church” system, you do not have a love for the truth (2 Th 2:10). You are so Luke-warm (Rev 3:15-16) that you don't care that your “church” is a creation of the government, has signed away it's leadership to the IRS, and is trying to set up a new system of government, based on their perverted version of Christianity. Until you develop a love of the truth and repent, you will be further carried away by strong delusion (2 Th 2:11-12) . I urge you in the strongest possible terms to come out of her, the fallen “church” (2 Th 2:3), before it is too late.
2Th 2:10-12 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
