Questioning God’s Existence (3)

the Gospel of Matthew

And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; (Ephesians 2:20)

And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. (Revelation of Jesus Christ 21:14)

Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and 1Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; 4 cSimon the 2Cananite, and Judas dIscariot, who also betrayed Him.(Matthew 10:2-4)

The names of the apostles are also listed in Mark 3 and Luke 6 and Acts 1.

Can anyone see in these holy scriptures the names of any of the so-called church fathers?

The so-called church fathers are the ancient culprits who made so many errors and additions and subtractions to what the apostles said. This is the very reason there is so much division to this day. The apostles did not make the mess: the so-called church fathers did.

I am sure Paul did not alter what Peter said nor did Jude alter what John said and so on.

The so-called church fathers; the ancient wresters of the scriptures (Paul warned about in Acts 20) totally dismantled the epistles of the apostles to promote their own theology. However they did not dismantle what Jesus actually told the apostles. They did not destroy the truth. They simply added to the copies of copies of copies of the holy letters, or removed what did not suit their Roman theology. It is no small wonder that the church has been engaged in warfare for all this time.

If only they had just did what the apostles said and wrote.

The so-called church fathers never seemed to understand that it was Peter who had the keys to the kingdom NOT them. This of course would exclude the popes of Rome having any keys. Peter alone had the keys. When he explained to those Jews in Jerusalem in Acts 2 everything was clear. No keys were passed on to any Roman emperor. Having the keys meant that it would be Peter who would not only preach to the Jews how to be saved (Acts 2).

But also with those keys to the kingdom, he would be sent to the Gentiles when he went to Caesarea to meet the Roman centurion Cornelius of the Italian band (Acts 10) the first Gentile convert saved under Peter’s ministry. He to whom Peter spoke to concerning Jesus. God sent Peter after he had the vision of the sheet let down by four corners.

Paul told the Philippian jailer when he asked him what must he do to be saved to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and not only would he be saved,but also his house.  (Acts 16) Great news to know that one person saved means their whole family will be saved.

Who knows what alterations the so-called church fathers made in all the copies? We have learned of  many.  By the time they started wresting the scriptures they might not have even know what was scripture and what was not.

God watches over his word to perform it. He performs it in the lives of those who have placed their faith in him. We certainly cannot count on the so-called church fathers who changed every copy of a copy of a copy they got their hands on. It is the words of Jesus and the apostles needed not theirs. We have them but what else is there is not known except for a few errors that have been exposed thanks to the honest scholars who told us the truth about the so-called church fathers.

Clement of Rome, Tertullian, Justin Martyr, Ignatius, Origen and all the rest of them did not even know God. They certainly did nor fear him. Nor did they have any respect for the apostles of the Lord.

Yet they are revered as church fathers by Trinitarians.. Peter is mostly ignored and his words cast aside.

Jesus said to call no man on earth our father. But many don’t care what the Lord said they are going to do it anyway. I’m surprised they did not add a book to the Bible that Clement wrote and called it the first letter of Clement. But with all their additions they only added to themselves the plagues written in the Bible.

They added and took from the words of the apostles.1 John 5:7  is not in the earliest manuscript. Why? because they added it to support the trinity doctrine which was invented by the RCC in the 4th century. It was the trinity doctrine they were desperately trying to defend.  Certainly not the faith that was once delivered to the saints. So with their theological axes they begin to chop God into three persons (masks)  while calling the holy apostles of the Lord liars. And adding and taking away from the scriptures.

A few centuries after the apostles died; heresy ruled under the popes of Rome. Satan was doing all he could to attack the church.

There is no doubt that most of what the apostles said has reached us thanks to God. As for the errors and additions and subtractions by the so-called church fathers, it was prophesied by the apostle Paul that this would happen.

2For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. (Acts 20:27-31)

The only thing Paul did not say was their names. But he described the so called church fathers perfectly. They drew disciples after themselves. John Calvin murdered Michael Servetus because Michael Servetus refused to be a disciple of the church fathers: the grievous wolves John Calvin followed.

I decided to do an experiment. I called a Christian I knew. A young man of about 19. I explained to him that I was doing some research why do Christians believe in God. I asked him May I ask you a serious question? He said Yes. I asked him for my research Why do you believe in Jesus? I wanted to know did he believe because he read of him or heard of him or what.

He said I heard about him. I continued So you didn’t read it in a book? He said no.. that he had heard about him somewhere in his life journey. And is there any other reason? He answered I met him. I have felt him. He has talked to me.

Nothing could convince you otherwise? No he said Never.
