In the name of our Lord יהושע Messiah, and of the Most High God who is our only salvation.

 

  1. No truth can be contrary to reason (Prov. 23:23, Matt. 11:19).
  2. Therefore, when it is said that "What is impossible with men is possible with God," it is to be understood not that God does things which are mischievous or absurd, but that God has set forth the laws and statutes of the universe in harmonious clarity (Jer. 33:25, Job 38).
  3. These laws necessarily include the immutable principles of reason, which cannot be subverted by manmade traditions and the rulings of ecumenical councils (Col. 2:8).
  4. Such councils and the churches which adhere to them act without authority in the stead of Messiah who reveals all mysteries (1 Tim. 2:5, John 4:25-26).
  5. The word ekklesia as used in scripture has the meaning of 'assembly' or synagogue and cannot be used synonymously with 'church,' which has an antithetical meaning (Acts 19:35-37).
  6. The term 'church' refers to any temple of the Roman goddess Diana, not any synod or congregation of believers (Acts 19:39-41).
  7. The clergy of the churches have no rights of authority either by apostolic succession or by any presumed succession from the Aaronic priesthood or the Order of Melchizedek (Heb. 7).
  8. It is the vocation of the laity, not the clergy, to perform sacraments, including the teaching of proselytes (Matt. 28:18-20, 1 Cor. 11:23-29).
  9. We have been warned by Messiah and his apostles of false teachers who would devise destructive heresies, leading many astray and exploiting them with stories which they have invented themselves (2 Pet. 2:1-3).
  10. We have been exhorted not to follow them in their shameful ways, and warned against being associated with them in their judgment (2 Pet. 2:3-22).
  11. We have been exhorted to have no fellowship with the works of darkness, but rather to reprove them (Eph. 5:11).
  12. The churches and all their doctrines, being stooped in darkness and abominations, are to be reproved, not supported (Exod. 23:2).
  13. We are exhorted to withdraw from our associations with those who stand in disagreement with the teachings of Messiah and to bear fruits worthy of repentance (1 Tim. 6:3-5, Matt. 3:8).
  14. We are not born into sin as the churches say (Ezek. 18:20, 1 John 3:7-10).
  15. We have been chosen by God to be set-apart and blameless from before the creation of the world; we do not choose our own salvation by any prevenient grace (Eph. 1:4-5).
  16. It is impossible to fall away from the one true faith and be once again reconciled to it (Heb. 6:4-6).
  17. The term and idea of 'faith' is a matter of daily living, not mere belief (Heb. 11).
  18. Belief alone is insufficient for salvation (Matt. 7:21, James 2:17-19).
  19. Salvation does not come through any historical event, particularly the murderous death of Messiah alleged to be an atonement for sins, or through the acknowledgment thereof, but through the hearing and application of the word of God (John 5:24-25, Rom. 10:17).
  20. The churches, having heard this word but failed to heed God's commandments, are shut out from the body of Messiah (Rom. 10:18-21).
  21. The word of God has been preached to all peoples through all ages apart from the gospel of Messiah and is written on the hearts of all men but actively suppressed by the ecclesiastical establishment (Phil. 1:18, Rom. 2:12-15).
  22. The man Yahushuah Messiah was not sent to all people of all places and times, but only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel (Matt. 15:24, Luke 5:31-32).
  23. We, the Christian people, descend from the house of Israel, not from the Jews; nor was our master Yahushuah a Jew as the churches allege (Matt. 15:3-9).
  24. All ritual ceremonies and all legally binding contracts advocated or administered by the churches including marriage licenses are null and void in the kingdom of heaven (Isa. 58:6, Mark 12:25).
  25. The churches' position on premarital sex is not scriptural and should not be confused with the scriptural positions on licentiousness, polygamy, and extra-marital sex (Gen. 2:20-22, Matt. 19:4-6).
  26. Any church or sect advocating priestly celibacy or the proscription of birth control does so in contravention of scripture (Lev. 21:13, 1 Tim. 4:1-3, 5:8, 1 Cor. 7:1-9).
  27. Any church or sect which is openly or implicitly tolerant of homosexuality or pedophilia or any other sexual perversion is ungodly and has no authority to preach the word of God (Rom. 1:25-32, 1 Tim. 1:8-11).
  28. The churches' position on the virginity of Messiah's mother is absurd; scripture indicates only that she became pregnant by her spouse before the cohabitation of the marriage union but does not claim that she was chaste at the time of his birth or, as the Roman Catholic Church so absurdly claims, that her hymen remained intact even after the birth, or that she never again had intercourse or gave birth (Matt. 1:18, 13:55, Mark 6:3).
  29. The virgin birth doctrine is essential to the establishment of the Babylonian/Egyptian Trinity of Osiris, Isis and Horus; it has no place in the scriptural doctrines of Christianity (Luke 18:19, 1 Tim. 2:5).
  30. The name of Jesus is a pagan abomination which refers to the Anti-Messiah Mithras, the god of Roman Catholicism, and is never to be used in Christian study or worship in place of the set-apart name of Yahushuah Messiah (2 Cor. 11:4, Heb. 1:3-4).
  31. The man Yahushuah Messiah, being a man and the form of Elohim, is not of the same substance as God the Father (Heb. 1:3).
  32. God is a spirit; it is wrong to ascribe the characteristics of a man to him (Exod. 20:4, John 4:24).
  33. To deny the mortal physicality of the man Yahushuah Messiah is to affirm the doctrines of the Anti-Messiah (1 John 4:2-3).
  34. The churches which profess the name of the Anti-Messiah Jesus also commit blasphemy against the Father (1 John 2:22-23).
  35. To support these churches with monetary offerings is to support the institutions of the Anti-Messiah and the perpetuation of the worship of pagan deities (Rev. 18:4-6, 2 Tim. 3:1-5).
  36. As government is oppression and privation, and the shepherd is charged with the care and well-being of his flock, involvement in and guidance for all matters pertaining to politics is the solemn affair of the clergy (Exod. 8:1, John 12:31, Acts 4:19-20, 5:29).
  37. To abstain from this duty or to seek tax-exempt status with any government is to become a private corporate enterprise under the terms and conditions of the governments whose authority is delegated by Satan (Ps. 1:1-3, 146:3-4, John 12:31, 15:18-21).
  38. Contrary to the exhortations of the churches, the imposition and payment of taxes to such governments are not to be advocated by any Christian whatsoever (Matt. 17:24-26).
  39. One cannot render unto God what is God's if one is simultaneously rendering unto Caesar what is Caesar's (Luke 16:13, 1 Tim. 6:9-11).
  40. Christians' resources are to be distributed solely to the poor according to need by individual contributions or collective offerings administered by deacons (Acts 2:44-47, 4:32-35).
  41. The regular cancellation of debts is a necessary law which must be observed by all Christians (Deut. 15:1-2).
  42. No Christian has any valid claim to set-apartness who does not observe the Sabbaths and Jubilees of the Bible (Matt. 5:17-18, Gal. 5:13-14).
  43. The Sabbath was instituted as an everlasting covenant; it cannot be abolished and Christians are obligated to rest on the proper day (Exod. 31:12-17).
  44. The first day of the week has been set apart as a day of fellowship and is not a replacement for the Sabbath (Acts 20:7-8).
  45. The Jubilee is also to be observed every seventh Sabbath year (Lev. 25).
  46. On the first day of the week Christians are to perform acts of charity in their communities, not gather for the celebration of pagan rituals (1 Cor. 16:2).
  47. Sunday is not the Lord's day on the churches' calendar, but the venerabili die solis (day of the sun-god Mithras or Apollo); to worship on that day is to worship a pagan deity according to the pagan customs of ancient Rome and the Constitutions of Constantine which outlawed Christianity (Gen. 2:2-3, Exod. 16:28-30).
  48. The Holy Communion of the agape feast of the epistles is not to be confused with the Lord's Supper, but rather rightfully associated with traditional fellowships and potlucks (1 Cor. 11:20, Jude 12).
  49. The rite of the Lord's Supper is only to be observed during the meal on the evening of the Passover (Matt. 26:17-20,26-29).
  50. Christmas and Easter are not to be celebrated by Christians, as they are pagan festivals which venerate pagan deities (Jer. 10:1-4, Ezek. 8:13-16).
  51. Resurrection Day is to be celebrated on or immediately before the 17th of Nisan, 3 days after Passover, never on the pagan holiday of Easter, which is a feast of the goddess Ishtar (John 19:14,31,42).
  52. Pagan symbols such as the crux immissa, the labarum and the ichthys are not to be used in Christian worship (Deut. 16:21-22, 32:21, Jer. 2:11, Isa. 41:29).
  53. The word amen is an invocation of a pagan deity and is therefore never to be used in Christian worship (Exod. 23:13).
  54. The clergy have no more or less authority to forgive sins than the common laity (John 20:22-23, Col. 3:13).
  55. Sins are not absolved or remitted by mere confession, but by repentance which is a lasting and profound change of heart (2 Cor. 2:8-11).
  56. Anyone who sins will not enter the kingdom of heaven (Matt. 5:19-20, John 14:23-24, 1 Cor. 6:9-10, Gal. 6:18-21, Eph. 5:1-8).
  57. Anyone who remains unrepentant will not enter the kingdom of heaven (Matt. 18:3, John 3:3).
  58. Anyone who professes the name of the LORD will not enter the kingdom of heaven (1 Kings 18:21, Matt. 7:21-23).
  59. ‘The LORD’ or ‘Adonai’ is not a valid substitute for ‘YHWH,’ but is a literal translation of the vernacular title of the pagan deity Molech, called ‘Baal’ (Hos. 2:16-17, Amos 5:26, Acts 7:43).
  60. The name of YHWH is sacred and not to be replaced or otherwise brought to naught (Exod. 20:7).
  61. All Christians who recite the Athanasian and Nicene Creeds break the Second Commandment in their worship of Lucifer and will be held accountable on the day of judgment (Exod. 20:7, Matt. 12:31-32).
  62. All Christians are obligated to know the doctrines which set them apart from the masses of Luciferians (John 7:17).
  63. The essence of the gospel of Messiah is pious evangelism, not the propagation of fear, coercion or conversion; all Christians are obligated to educate themselves on spiritual matters so that they may properly answer questions with all meekness and reverence (Matt. 23:13-15, 1 Pet. 3:15-16).
  64. Messiah did not come to Earth to bring peace but rather division; the truth of the gospel is antithetical to and must necessarily take precedence over the spirit of unity and cooperation of the ecumenical movement (Matt. 10:34-36).
  65. The gospel of Messiah is the remission of sins and the kingdom of heaven, not any facts about the historical events or circumstances of the messenger (Matt. 3:2, Luke 24:46-47).
  66. The gospel of the kingdom of heaven was never intended to be received and understood by anyone except those whom God has elected (Mark 4:11-13).
  67. Election and salvation are not identical concepts to be used synonymously; they have separate meanings and are applied to two separate groups of people in scripture (Matt. 22:2-14).
  68. The Jewish Ashkenazim are not God's chosen people; the chosen people are the nation of Israel whose descendants include many of the peoples of Northern, Central and Western Europe, and their offspring (Rev. 2:9, 3:9).
  69. Jewish scriptures such as the Apocrypha and the book of Esther do not belong in the Bible (Rev. 22:18-19).
  70. Scriptural traditions descending from the Masoretic texts of the Jews are in error and should not be considered infallible (2 Sam. 10:18 vs 1 Chron. 19:18, 2 Kings 24:8 vs 2 Chron. 36:9).
  71. The apostasy of the nation of Israel was not gradual and did not take place in the Intertestamental Period, but effectively began during the reign of the Judaizer King Solomon and has continued to the present day (1 Kings 11:4-7, Acts 7:51-53).
  72. The man Yahushuah Messiah was a Nazarite and a prophet from Samaria and Galilee, not a carpenter from Judea; the alleged connection to carpentry is a malicious attempt to identify him with Freemasonry, and the alleged connection to Judea is a malicious attempt to identify him with Judaism (Matt. 2:22-23, John 8:48-49).
  73. The magi which visited Yahushuah Messiah in his infancy observed his natal star from Babylon; they did not arrive at a stable in the town of Bethlehem on the day of his birth, but came and visited Yahushuah's family in their own house (Matt. 2:1-2,11).
  74. Any church or sect which advocates the veneration of Yahushuah Messiah's mother Miriam, the Roman goddess Maria, the Greek Sophia, or any other emanation of the Babylonian Ishtar is Anti-Messiah (Luke 11:27-28, Mark 3:31-35).
  75. The doctrines of universalism and nulla salus extra ecclesiam are both absurd and contrary to scripture, as salvation is not offered to all, coming only by way of Messiah and never through the churches or any other proxy (John 14:6, 1 Tim. 2:5).
  76. Scripture is alone sufficient for the doctrines of salvation, but insufficient for understanding all truths, as not all truths are contained in scripture (2 Tim. 3:14-17, Rom. 1:18-20, Jas. 1:5, Ps. 89:37).
  77. The man Yahushuah Messiah is not the Logos or the Word of God, but an individual manifestation of it; to equate the two is blasphemy and contrary to scripture (Gal. 4:4, John 14:28).
  78. The serpent of Genesis, Satan or the Devil, is not the same entity as the fallen cherub called Lucifer or Molech; equating them amounts to obfuscation of the identity of the god worshiped in the Christian churches (Rev. 12:9, Ezek. 28:14-15).
  79. Prayer serves the purpose of inducing conformity to the divine will in the supplicant, but is ineffectual to accomplish divine intervention as God can only possibly choose the best possible outcome to achieve his designs, and has known and chosen this outcome from before the foundation of the world (Prov. 28:9, Matt. 6:5-7).
  80. God does not hear the prayers of church-going Christians and other sinners (Isa. 1:15-16).
  81. Only the elect will be awoken at the first resurrection to reign with Messiah for 1000 years (Rev. 20:4-6).
  82. At the second resurrection, sinners will be awoken to everlasting reproaches according to their works, not to everlasting torment (Jer. 23:40, Dan. 12:2).
  83. The idea of hell as taught by the Christian churches is a thoroughly pagan concept (Rev. 20:1-3, 1 Pet. 3:18-20, Jude 1:6).
  84. Hell is the grave, a place of everlasting destruction or the cessation of consciousness, which is mutually exclusive from the idea of everlasting torment (Eccles. 9:5-6, Psalm 104:29).
  85. The lake of fire is reserved for intangible concepts such as the world government, the Church, Satan, death and hell (Rev. 19:20, 20:10,14).
  86. Human beings do not possess immortal souls; this is the lie of the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3:4, Heb. 9:27).
  87. Human beings do not possess philosophical free will; this includes those who have been set free by Messiah (John 8:34, 1 Cor. 6:19-20, Rom. 14:7-9).
  88. Angels have not been made to serve men, but men have been made for the pleasure of Elohim (Gen. 2:15).
  89. The doctrine of monotheism is absurd and contrary to scripture (Gen. 3:22, Jer. 19:4-5, Ps. 82:6, John 10:34).
  90. The term elohim means 'the gods' in Hebrew and is not a title exclusive to the Most High God YHWH (Exod. 7:1, 15:11).
  91. There will be no secret rapture or a seven-year tribulation and great persecution of Christians who refuse the Mark of the Beast, and such strange new teachings are doctrines of devils (1 Cor. 15:51-52, 2 Pet. 1:19-21).
  92. The charismatic doctrine of speaking in tongues is a doctrine of devils and a sign not of election, but of demon possession (1 Cor. 14:33, 1 Thess. 5:8, Phil. 1:27, 1 Pet. 5:8).
  93. Infant baptism is ineffectual for election or salvation; the sign of God's covenant with his chosen people is the everlasting covenant of circumcision (Gen. 17:9-10).
  94. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit (Matt. 12:30-33).
  95. The doctrines and institutions of mainstream Christianity are not merely apostate; they are Anti-Messiah (Mark 9:42-48).
