Standing Firm for the Faith

October 31, 2012 marked the 495th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Martin Luther's bold stand for truth was strengthened through his knowledge that the Scriptures are the solid, immovable rock upon which the whole church should base all its doctrines and faith.

Now most Lutherans have "wussed out" on taking on brave and clear stand on doctrine.

Any religion that teaches the God of the Bible is Jesus, his Father and the Holy Spirit, is the antichrist.

The teaching of the Trinity, that Jesus is God and his Father and also the holy spirit is also God, they are all equal and all co eternal is not a teaching in the Bible.

The Scriptures are very clear, you must worship God with spirit and truth, Jesus said those words at
John 4:24

Jesus never wanted men to worship him or give him any glory, he was not God and always gave the glory and praise to Almighty God Jehovah for any miracles he performed with God's holy spirit.

(John 5:41-45). . .I do not accept glory from men, 42 but I well know that YOU do not have the love of God in YOU. 43 I have come in the name of my Father, but YOU do not receive me; if someone else arrived in his own name, YOU would receive that one. 44 How can YOU believe, when YOU are accepting glory from one another and YOU are not seeking the glory that is from the only God?

..... If you are still standing, do sit down! Be comfortable!
..... Anything that is attributed in "John's gospel" to a saying of Jesus is probably only an invention by the writer of that gospel; there were no recorders in those days. It was written about 70 years after Jesus was crucified without an author's name attached to it, and only later they added the name "John" to it.
..... Many other fiction books were written since then; maybe the authors of many of them were inspired by God?

Scoffers and ridiculers are many today, especially of God's word the Bible. They are welcome to their opinions, but that does not change the fact that the Bible is still God's inspired word to mankind.
1Peter 1:21
Romans 9:25

Almighty God Jehovah is gathering a people for his name today, and it is only through their direction anyone has a hope for surviving the end of this world. Jehovah's witnesses can show you the Scriptures that will direct you to Almighty God Jehovah's will today, for you to learn and obey to have his approval.
Acts 15:14
1Timothy 2:4

RE: Standing Firm for the Faith
..... Do you really think that God needed writers to communicate any of his words then and now? If it is true that God inspired authors to write words by God, then what about the very many words of God since then? Why are they being ignored or even suppressed?
..... Very many books, articles, etc. have been written ever since and they too may have been inspired by God.
..... Which RECENT deeds of God have been witnessed by some of the JWs? Who will participate in some court challenges as witnesses for or against God; which is it?

You have not seen any works of God, yet.

Almighty God Jehovah has given man his inspired word to guide and protect those who want to be righteous and obey God's will, in these last days of this world.
John 17:3

Do not attribute the natural disasters to being direct works of Almighty God Jehovah. People are just living where the results of natural phenomenon are sure to happen, as psnuami, hurricane, tornado and flood and others, all the results of pressures and storms on earth.

When you see the sky turn a red purple color and fire hailstones come crashing down and buildings are crumbling before your eyes, then you know you have seen a work of God, and you will very soon.
