Vain Worship

Matthew 15:9 {But in vain they do worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men.}
Mark 7:7 {Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men.}
I Corinthians 15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

I hope that these verses will show that through manmade doctrines it is possible that a persons worship could be IN VAIN, and that that a persons sincere belief could also be IN VAIN..I want to expose the "easy believism preachers" as the accursed satanic workers that they are.

II Timothy 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
II Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

This is a pleasure mad generation even in many so called "churches", they "hold to the form"(in other words they go to church they have the form or ritual) but deny the power..they deny the power to quit sins, they deny tongues (which is the initial power of the Holy Ghost)

II Timothy 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
II Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
II Timothy 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

Matthew 7:15 {Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.}
Matthew 24:11 {And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.}

I John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

II Corinthians 11:13 For such [are] false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
II Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
II Corinthians 11:15 Therefore [it is] no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their work

So Satan's ministers pretend to be Christ's ministers..and oh do they speak great swelling words that appear so wise, and they deftly, and masterfully TWIST the scriptures, deceiving the masses.

II Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
II Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
II Timothy 4:4 And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

We are at that place where men and women will not endure sound doctrine, but are elevating false preachers that will just call any doctrine "legalism" and "bondage" and will preach a fable that everyone is going to heaven if they just "believe on the Lord" and stuff like that, twisting and perverting the precious word of God....But the Bible WARNED that they would come and deceive MANY.....

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Acts 2:39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, [even] as many as the Lord our God shall call.


Galatians 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Galatians 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

(the one that they had received was Acts 2:38)
