AND TRUE DOCTRINES
False: a person can be justified by baptism.
True: a person can be justified only by
faith in Jesus (Rom.3:38).
False: Justification can be furthered by
good works and sacraments.
True: Justification is Godís applying the
righteousness of Christ to us (2 Cor. 5:21).
False: Salvation is achieved by grace through
faith, plus good works and sacraments.
True: Salvation is attained by grace through
faith, without any works we do (Eph.2:8-9). Good works are
the results of salvation, NOT the cause of salvation (Eph.2:10).
False: Salvation from the eternal consequences
of sin is a life-long process. We have to keep working at
True: Salvation from the eternal consequences
of sin happens immediately upon acceptance of Christ. It
is an act of God, which coincides with justification (Rom.5:9).
False: Grace is a quality of the soul,
something that perfects the soul.
True: Grace is the undeserved favor of
False: Sacraments (rituals, rites) are
a necessary channel of grace.
True: A "born again" believer (God’s child) is the constant object of the Father’s grace (Rom.5:1-2).
is merited (earned, deserved) by good works.
is a free gift from God (Rom.11:6).
sins must be confessed to a priest.
sins are to be confessed ONLY to God the Father (Ezra
10:11; 1 John 1:9).
the guilt of sin is forgiven, temporary punishment remains.
God forgives sin, He forgives completely (Is.43:25;
Jer.31:34; Ps.103:12; Mic.7:18-19; 1 John 1:9; Heb.8:12;
(excusable) sins do not incur eternal punishment.
sin is punishable by eternal death (Hell) aside from Jesus
is necessary to atone for sin and cleanse the soul.
does NOT exist! NO where in the Bible does
this word appear, or is its doctrine taught. Jesus alone
made atonement for our sins possible on the cross (Heb.1:3;
souls in purgatory can be helped by those alive on Earth
by prayers, good works and mass.
from the body, present with the Lord (2 Cor. 5:8).
False: No one can know for sure
if they will have eternal life in Heaven.
again" believers can know they have
eternal life by Godís Word ( John 3:15-16; 5:24; 6:47; 10:28;
Rom. 6:23; Tit.1:2; 3:7; 1 John 5:4-5,11).
must belong to a certain denomination or you will never
4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other:
for there is none other name under heaven given among men,
whereby we must be saved. (KJV) NO church (denomination)
can save your soul. NO other person can save you.
Salvation comes ONLY through Christ Jesus!
False: A person
must be baptized to be saved.
thief on the cross was not baptized (Luke 23:43). It is
the right thing to do, but baptism will NOT save you.
worship three Gods.
worship a triune God, made up of three divine Persons (Gen.1:26;
Mat.28:19; 1 John 5:6-7).
False: A loving
God would not send me to Hell.
gives people every chance to see things His way. If they
do not accept His only begotten Son as their Saviour and
Lord, God has no other alternative but to sentence that
soul to everlasting destruction (John 3:3, 15-18, 36; 8:24;
14:6; 1 John 5:10-12). God is love, yes (1 John 4:8);
but God is also a God of wrath (Is.30:30; Mal.3:5; John
3:36; Rom.1:18; 2:8; Eph.5:6; 2 Peter 2:4; Rev.15:7).
good a person does will be weighed against the bad, at the
judgment. If the good outweighs the bad, that person is
allowed into Heaven.
True: A person MUST be "born again"
or they will not even "see" Heaven (John
was preserved from the stain of original sin from the moment
of her conception.
as a descendant of Adam, was a sinner the same as every
other human (Ps.51:5; Rom.5:12).
the "all-holy" lived a sinless life
was a wonderful person, but she was sinner (Ec.7:20; Rom.3:10,23). Only God alone is Holy (Ex.15:11; 1 Sam.6:20; Ps.99:9; Is.6:3; Luke 18:19; Rev.15:4).
was a virgin before, during and after the birth of Christ.
was a virgin until the birth of Christ (Is.7:14;
Mat.1:25). Later on, she had other children (Ps.69:8; Mat.13:55-56;
Luke 2:7; John 7:3,5; Acts 1:14).
is the mother of God.
has NO mother. God is eternal, having no beginning or nor
end. God is the Creator of all things (Mary included). Mary,
a created being, was the mother of the Man, Jesus (John
is the mother of the church.
is a member of the church (Acts 1:14; 1 Cor.12:13,27).
is the co-redeemer, for she participated with Christ in
the painful act of redemption.
True: Christ, and Christ alone, is the Redeemer, for He ALONE suffered and
died for the sin of mankind (Mary included). NO where in
the Bible does it say anything about a co-redeemer! (Mat.20:28;
Eph.1:7; Heb.9:12; Col.1:14; 1 Peter 1:18-19).Mary did NOT
die on the cross, she lived after Jesusí death (John 19:26-27).
is co-mediator, and we can go to her in prayer.
Jesus alone is the ONLY Mediator to whom
we can entrust all our cares and petitions (1 Tim.2:5; John
13:14; 1 Peter 5:7). There is NO co-mediator!
has been exalted by God as queen of Heaven and Earth and
she should be praised with special devotion.
the Name of the Lord is to be praised, for He and He alone
is exalted above Heaven and Earth (Ps.148:13). Godís command
to us is: "You shall have no other gods before me"
(Ex. 20:3). Jesus said we must not put anyone before
Him or we are not worthy of Him (Mat.10:37-38). The Queen
of Heaven was a name for Ishtar, the Mesopotamian goddess
of love and fertility. After the fall of Jerusalem, the
refugees from Judah who fled to Egypt continued to worship
her (Jer.7:18; 44:17-19,25). We should NOT worship
any other god OR goddess except the Almighty God, our Creator.
was the head of the apostles.
was the Head of the apostles (John 13:13).
was never married.
was married (Mat.8:14; Mark 1:30; Luke 4:38).
pope is infallible (perfect, unerring) in his authoritative
pope is only a man, he is a sinner as are all men (Rom3:10,23).
Only God alone is infallible (Num.23:19).
and tradition together are the word of God.
ALONE is the Word of God (2 Tim.3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
We should stay away from all man-made doctrines (Mat.15:9).
should bow before the pope.
True: We should
bow down ONLY before Almighty God alone (Acts 10:26).
demanded that he be worshipped, bowed down to; just like
the popes and bishops of today.
the opposite is true, he absolutely refused to be worshipped
should call the pope "holy father".
True: We should
call NO man "father" in a spiritual sense
(Mat.23:9). Neither should we call any man "reverend"
for that word is reserved for God alone (Ps.111:9).
should repeat prayers over and over again to make sure God
True: W e
should AVOID vain repetitions of any prayers (Mat.6:7).
church should tithe.
was a Law, given to the nation Israel (Num.18:20-32; Heb.7:5).
The tribe of Levi were the ONLY ones ever given authority
by God, to accept tithes from people. Since the complete
Law was fulfilled (abolished, canceled, nullified, revoked,
rescinded, terminated, wiped out) when Jesus died on the
cross (Col.2:14), tithing does not apply any more. We are
NOT under the Mosiac Law. Giving in the church of today
is a personal matter between the person and God. Many people
who tithe can well afford to give much more than 10%; so
tithing is a loophole for them. (Acts 11:29; 1 Cor.16:2;
2 Cor.8:12; 9:7; Mark 12:41-44).
was not a combination of God and man.
was 100% God (Mat.16:16; Luke 22:69; John 1:1-2; 10:30,
37-38; 12:45; 14:7-10; Col.2:9; Heb.1:3), and 100% Man (Mat.1:1;
Gal.4:4; Phil.2:8; 1 Tim.2:5).
was a mere man on Earth. He ceased to exist after His death
on the cross.
True: Jesus was resurrected. We serve a risen Saviour. Jesus
is alive! (Mat.28:6; Mark 16:6; 1 Cor.15:13-18). He is now
at the right hand of Almighty God (Eph.1:20; Col.3:1; Heb.1:3,
13; 8:1; 10:12; 12:2; 1 Peter 3:22).
is no such thing as everlasting pain in Hell. Those who,
even after a second chance, refuse the Gospel, will simply
True: There is ONLY one chance, here on Earth, to accept Jesus. The Bible does NOT teach annihilation, but judgment.
Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: [KJV]
Isaiah 38:18 For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth. [KJV]
Eccles. 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. [KJV]
God will never allow an unbeliever into Heaven. John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.[KJV]
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. [KJV]
John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. [KJV]
was once as we are now. He is an exalted man, and sits on
a throne in Heaven
is eternal and self existent (Deut.33:27; Is.44:6; 57:15; Ps.93:2; 102:27;
145:13; John 5:26; Rom.1:20; 1 Tim.6:15-16; Acts 17:24-25).
Man is a created being, created by the eternal, Almighty,
sovereign God (Gen.1:26-27).
False: A God
is, man may become.
our soul is eternal, yes (Luke 16:19-31, John 5:28-29).
And one day believers in Christ will receive new bodies
that will never sin (1 Cor.15:49; Phil.3:21), but, NO
ONE can ever be like God.
I have barely scratched
the surface on false doctrines. There are thousands! Beware! The devil and his children keep preaching and teaching it.
Cults are growing like weeds. We need to be so careful of
what we allow into our minds. Please
be careful. Let God be the Judge in all things.
Donít allow any of the devilís doctrines to grab hold of
or Resurrection Day?
