Pseudos and Heretics within
"But the word of the Lord
was to them, 'Precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon
line, line upon line, here a little, there a little,' that they
might go and fall backward, and be broken and snared and caught.
Therefore hear the word of the Lord, you scornful men, who rule
this people who are in Jerusalem."
does the Bible define
the word "heretic?"
Bible defines a heretic as one who
has sin in his heart even though
he believes in Jesus.
There are many pseudo newswriters
these days, especially in developing countries. They are the ones
who pretend to be newswriters but usually extort money from their
victims, threatening to expose something their victims have done.
Pseudo means something that looks genuine but is not the real thing.
In other words, it refers to something whose outside is completely
different from its inside.
The words "heretic" and
"pseudo" are used quite often, especially in Christian
But there are few clear-cut definitions
of what a heretic is and what it is to be termed "pseudo,"
nor are there many who teach these concepts in strict accordance
with the Bible.
Under these circumstances, I feel
duty bound to disclose what the Bible defines as "heresy"
and shed some light on the subject. I also want to point out some
examples of heresy in real life and thus have us think about it
together. Anyone who believes in God has to think about heresy at
least once in their lives.
Titus 3:10-11 defines a heretic as
a divisive person who is warped and sinning, being self-condemned.
A heretic is someone who condemns himself as a sinner. Therefore
those who believe in Jesus but have sin in their hearts are heretics
Jesus took away all sins through His
baptism. But heretics refuse to believe in the true gospel that
brings salvation to sinners and thus condemn themselves to join
the ranks of sinners.
Are you a heretic? We have to think
about this if we want to live an upright faithful life.
Aren't you condemning yourself as
a sinner even though you believe in Jesus if you have not yet heard
the gospel of the water and the Spirit? If you consider yourself
a sinner, then you are doing a disservice to Jesus by slighting
His perfect salvation and the gospel of the water and the Spirit.
To call oneself a sinner before God
is to admit that one is not a son of God. Those who confess to Jesus,
"Lord, I am a sinner," have to reconsider their own faith.
How can you believe in Jesus and still
claim to be a sinner when Jesus took away all the sins of the world
and saved you perfectly from eternal damnation? How can you deny
His free gift of salvation and define yourself as a sinner when
Jesus took away all your sins through His baptism and was judged
thoroughly for them at the Cross?
Such people are heretics because they
volunteer to be sinners apart from the word of God. You have to
know the gospel of the water and the Spirit to avoid committing
heresy before God.
Anyone who believes in Jesus but is
not born again is a heretic because he still has sin in his heart.
Because God took away all the sins
of the world including our own, we are heretics before God if we
ignore this blessing of salvation. Because God is holy, we are heretics
if we have sin in our hearts. If we really want to become righteous,
we have to believe in the gospel of the baptism of Jesus and His
blood at the Cross.
THE ORIGIN OF HERESY IN THE

has to be born again.
Let's look at 1 Kings 12:25-26. "Then
Jeroboam built Shechem in the mountains of Ephraim, and dwelt there.
Also he went out from there and built Penuel. And Jeroboam said
in his heart, 'Now the kingdom may return to the house of David.'"
Jeroboam was one of Solomon's subordinates. When Solomon became
corrupt in his later years, Jeroboam rebelled against the king,
and later he became the king of the ten tribes of Israel in the
time of Rehoboam, the son of Solomon.
Jeroboam's first concern when he became
king of Israel was that his people might return to Judah where there
So, he came up with an idea to prevent
this from happening. He made two golden calves in Bethel and Dan
and commanded his people to worship them. 1 Kings 12:28 says, "Therefore
the king asked advice, made two calves of gold." One he
set up in Bethel, and the other in Dan and told his people to worship
them, despite the fact doing so was a terrible sin. He even arbitrarily
appointed priests to lead the worship.
"After this event Jeroboam
did not turn from his evil way, but again he made priests from every
class of people for the high places; whoever wished, he consecrated
him, and he became one of the priests of the high places" (1
Kings 13:33). That is the origin of heresy.
Even now, heretics appoint to the
priesthood anyone who volunteers to do the work of God. Anyone who
graduates from a theological seminary can become a minister, an
evangelist, a missionary and elder even if he is not born again
of water and the Spirit.
How can someone who is not born again
become a minister? If such a person is appointed as a priest, the
church that elects him becomes a factory for the production of heretics.
Let us think again about the origin
of heresy. First, Jeroboam substituted golden calves for God in
order to maintain his political power. Second, he consecrated anyone
who volunteered to become a priest. In other words, he consecrated
ordinary people as priests. And the same thing is done these days.
The history of heresy continued on
well after the time of Jeroboam. Those who are not born again of
water and the Spirit should never be allowed to become priests.
Can anyone who only graduates from
a theological seminary become a minister or an evangelist? Is it
alright for them to serve God despite the fact they have not been
approved by God? Never. Only those who have been acknowledged by
God should be allowed to become His servants. Those who are acknowledged
by God are those who are born again of water and the Spirit.
It is recorded in 1 Kings 12:25-26
and 1 Kings chapter 13 that the sin of Jeroboam provoked the wrath
of God. We should all know this story, and if someone isn't familiar
with it, he should go back to the Bible and find out.
Think again if you are substituting
golden calves for God in your ministry. Do you, by any chance, put
emphasis on earthly blessings lest your followers may return to
the gospel of being born again of water and the Spirit?
Do you tell your followers that they
can be cured of disease if they believe in Jesus? Do you tell them
that they will be blessed in properties? Do you appoint those who
are not born again to be ministers or staff members of your church
and claim that your denomination is the only orthodox one? Then
you are committing the sin of Jeroboam before God and provoking
HERETICS WORSHIP A GOD OF
Even today, there are so many heretics
who worship golden calves. They say that God blessed Solomon when
he offered a thousand burnt offerings to God. I Kings 3:3-5 says,
"And Solomon loved the Lord, walking in the statutes of
his father David, except that he sacrificed and burned incense at
the high places. Now the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there,
for that was the great high place: Solomon offered a thousand burnt
offerings on that altar. At Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon
in a dream by night; and God said, 'Ask! What shall I give you?'"
They swindle money out of their followers
under the fraudulent promise of "a thousand burnt offerings
of Solomon." Those foolish followers are extorted of their
money. And those who worship golden calves as their God are deprived
of their money, which is used as contributions to build tremendous
church buildings. It is not because their churches are too small,
but because they want to extort money from their followers.
Setting up golden calves for their
congregations to worship was only an excuse heretics came up with
to extort money from them. We who believe in God should never be
taken for fools. If you offer your money in worship of golden calves,
it is not offered to God, but ends up in the pockets of pseudo priests
who are full of greed like Jeroboam. You should never fall into
the traps of such heretics.
Then why was God pleased with the
thousand burnt offerings of Solomon? Because Solomon knew his own
sins, acknowledged that he had to die for them and offered sacrifices
in accordance with the faith. He offered a thousand burnt offerings
in gratitude for the salvation of God. Solomon offered a thousand
burnt offerings every day, thinking of the redemption of the water
and the Spirit.
Now, you should remember the true
meaning of heresy so that you will never be deceived by pseudo priests.
THOSE WHO MINISTER WITHOUT
BEING BORN AGAIN ARE HERETICS
do heretics say about
being born again?
say they are born again of visions,
dreams, and various kinds of
There are those who teach others to
be born again when they themselves have not been reborn in the faith.
They are all heretics. They tell others to be born again when they
are incapable of rebirth because they do not know about the gospel
of the water and the Spirit. We can only laugh.
Pseudo priests preach a false gospel,
distorting the gospel of the water and the Spirit. They tell people
to wash away their own sins every day.
They say, "Go and pray in the
mountains, try fasting, devote yourself to the work of God, pray
at the break of dawn, be obedient, offer a lot of money for building
churches, but you should take care of your own sins."
Once, I heard someone testifying that
he was born again. He said that in a dream, he was standing in a
line and when his turn came, Jesus called his name. He said it was
the testimony for his being born again. But is his conviction a
correct one? Jesus did not say so.
In John 3, He says, "Unless
one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom
of God." God says that only those who are born again of
water and the Spirit can become true priests. Anyone who believes
that he is born of dreams, fantasies, spiritual ecstasies, or prayers
for repentance is a heretic.
These days many people do not believe
in the written word of God and uphold their denominational doctrines
instead of being born again of water and the Spirit. Those who refuse
to preach the gospel of being born again of water and the Spirit
are pseudo Christians and heretics.
REFORMERS AND EXISTING CHRISTIANITY
did the true gospel begin
to be mixed in with and distorted
by other religions?
the time when the Roman Emperor
Constantine proclaimed the Milan Edict
in 313 A.D.
When were the denominations of Christianity
formed? When did the different denominations such as Presbyterian,
Methodist, Baptist, Lutheran, Holiness, and Full Gospel begin? The
Reformation happened only about 500 years ago.
Early Christians were those who followed
Jesus when He was in this world. "Christians" means "those
who follow Christ."
The first Christians were the apostles
and their disciples. The apostles and the Fathers of the church
followed the true gospel till 313 A.D. But after the Milan Edict
of Constantine the Great, Christians and Gentiles began to mix,
resulting in the Dark Ages that lasted for more than 1000 years.
Later, in early 16th century, Martin
Luther proclaimed the Reformation, saying, "Only the righteous
shall live by faith." A little later, between 1500 ~ 1600,
Reformers like John Calvin and John Knox led the movement away from
Catholicism. This was all that the Reformation achieved.
The Reformation was simply an effort
to establish new churches separate from the Roman Catholic Church.
Reformers didn't deny Catholicism itself.
Their purpose was not to promote faith
in being born again of water and the Spirit, but to free themselves
from the oppression and corruption of the Roman Catholic Church.
The Roman Catholic Church called this movement Protestantism. It
means the protesters.
At the time, the Roman Catholic Church
urged people to buy Indulgences, saying they could send their dead
ancestors to heaven when they bought Indulgences with big money.
Luther didn't realize that Catholicism was wrong. He was only trying
to stop the Roman Catholic Church from selling Indulgences to finance
construction of Saint Peter's Cathedral.
As a result, we can see many remnants
of the Catholic Church in the modern Protestant Church: infant baptism,
the prayers of repentance which are similar to confession under
the Roman Catholic Church, holy rituals, recognition only of those
who graduate from theological seminaries as ministers, majestic
and grandiose churches. All these are the remnants of the Roman
Counting from the Reformation in the
early 1500's, the history of the Protestantism is only about 500
years old. This year is the 481st anniversary of the Reformation.
You may not realize that Martin Luther protested against his mother
church only 481 years ago. Protestantism cannot thus lay sole claim
to legitimacy in light of its comparative youth. The reformation
of Christianity is still going on. And it should go on continuously.
But there is one thing we should keep
in mind. We should never forget that only those who are born again
of water and the Spirit can enter the kingdom of heaven. And let
us preach that! Do you preach the gospel of Jesus, the gospel of
being born again of water and the Spirit? If not, you are not a
servant of God. It is the gospel of "being born again of water
and the Spirit" that God wants us to believe. It is what Jesus
taught Nicodemus in John chapter 3.
Does the Bible talk only about the
gospel of being born again of water and the Spirit, or does it talk
about other things such as working for the good of society and living
a holy life? Of course the latter is important, too. But you can
do that after you are born again of water and the Spirit. The will
of God is for us to believe in the gospel.
TEACHINGS OF HERETICS
is a heretic?
who is still a sinner even though
he believes in Jesus
When did pseudo Christian, heretical
faith begin to prosper in the world?
The people of Israel worshiped one
God until they were separated into two kingdoms at the time of Jeroboam
as written in 1 Kings chapter 12-13. From that time, before Christ
came to this world, heretical faith began to prosper. And there
are so many heretics these days.
The Bible talks about their pseudo
Christian teachings in Isaiah chapter 28 and Titus 3:10-11. The
Bible says that heretics are those who believe in Jesus but still
have sin in their hearts. Anyone who is like that is a heretic.
And they teach, as written in Isaiah
28:9-10, "Whom will he teach knowledge? And whom will he
make to understand the message? Those just weaned from milk? Those
just drawn from the breasts? For precept must be upon precept, precept
upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there
Heretics add precept upon precept,
line upon line. What does this mean? It means "Be careful,
be careful, be careful of those who say they are born again through
their faith in Jesus." They just tell you to be careful no
matter what. They tell you not to listen, not to go, lest you might
fall into heresy.
But if they are so sure that theirs
is the orthodox faith, why can't they repel those who say
their beliefs differ from the word of God? It is so pitiful.
They claim to be the orthodox Christians, but they do not have the
words to overcome what they call heresy. The true Christian can
win over any heretic with the word of God.
These days, would-be orthodox Christians
denounce the born again as "heretics" just because their
beliefs are different. How can we be heretics when we believe in
the gospel of the water and the Spirit?
If those called heretics preach the
gospel of the water and the Spirit, they are true orthodox Christians.
Likewise, if would-be orthodox Christians do not preach the gospel
of the water and the Spirit, they are heretics.
The difference between "orthodoxy"
and "heresy" lies in whether they preach the gospel of
the water and the Spirit and whether they believe in Jesus and have
sin in their hearts or not. How can they be heretics if they believe
in the word of God and are born again of water and the Spirit?
Is it heresy to believe in the baptism
of Jesus and His blood at the Cross and to be completely cleansed
of sin? Is it "orthodox" not to believe in the gospel
of the water and the Spirit?
There are so many denominationalists
who have drifted away from the Bible and yet claim to be the "orthodox"
Christians. They drift away from being born again of water and the
Spirit as specified in the Bible because they preach only the blood
at the Cross, denying the baptism of Jesus (the water).
What is the difference between the
Roman Catholic Church and the Protestant Church these days? Just
as reformers rebelled against the Roman Catholic Church, just as
they came out of the Roman Catholic Church and built Protestantism,
we should also rebel against blind Christians and pseudo priests.
Only then can we open our eyes to the true gospel, have true faith,
and be completely saved through the gospel of the water and the
do we have to do to
avoid becoming heretics?
have to be born again of water
and the Spirit.
The Bible tells us that only those
who believe in the gospel of the baptism of Jesus and His blood
at the Cross follow the true faith. Jesus said as such to Nicodemus
in John 3:1-12.
Heretics always urge their followers
to be devout in their faith. They urge them to pray at the break
of dawn and to work harder. It is like urging blind men to run.
No matter how hard you pray, it is
of no use if you are not born again of water and the Spirit. When
we say that those who are born again of water and the Spirit are
the righteous, heretics counter with Romans 3:10, "There
is none righteous, no, not one." With this verse, they
label believers as heretics.
But they are heretics. The true meaning
of the verse is not as simple as its sounds. These heretics have
not read the whole Bible. The apostle Paul said that there is not
a righteous man in the world. He was only quoting a verse from the
Old Testament which says there was no one righteous in the world
before Jesus Christ came and delivered all mankind from their sins
with the salvation of God. But those who are saved by Jesus have
We can see the truth if we read the
whole chapter. Heretics only warn their followers to be careful
of those whose faith is different from theirs. Except for churches
that they recognize as orthodox ones, they prohibit their followers
from worshipping elsewhere. So their congregations dare not go to
churches that preach the gospel of the water and the Spirit.
They become deaf to the true gospel
and cannot be born again. These are the teachings of false leaders
who raise the sons of hell. And they will be judged by God. Heretics
have to turn back to God.
Who are the heretics? Are they the
ones redeemed by believing in the gospel of the water and the Spirit,
or are they the ones who claim to believe in Jesus but fail to be
born again of water and the Spirit?
Titus 3:11 says that those who believe
in Jesus but remain "self-condemned" are heretics.
They teach their followers not to
go to the revival meetings at which the gospel of being born again
of water and the Spirit is preached, saying it is dangerous. How
can the "orthodox" be afraid of conflicting beliefs? They
are afraid because they do not have the truth on their side. "For
precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept." The
teachings of heretics are like that.
Heretic priests quote a little from
this book, a little from that book, from the words of philosophers,
from literature, and mix them in with their own thoughts and make
everything sound good.
They take their followers to be ignorant
and they try to educate them with worldly teachings. The true church
preaches the word of God and educates believers with the word of
God. People do not come to church to be educated in the way of the
world. Rather, they come to church to hear of heavenly things that
cannot be heard in the world. They come to hear the word of Jesus.
People enter their church as sinners
but they want to emerge from the church as righteous believers who
have no sin. But what do heretic priests teach them? They tell their
followers not to go to the revival meetings in which the servants
of God preach the true gospel. They prevent their followers from
being born again of water and the Spirit.
It is so foolish. They may be able
to deceive their followers but they can never deceive God.
Can pseudo priests make
their followers born again of
water and the Spirit?
Only the born again can make
others born again.
Heretics, if you are true servants
of God, can't you hear the Spirit reproach you? You have to turn
back. You should stop obstructing your followers from attending
the revival meetings in which the true servants of God preach the
gospel of being born again of water and the Spirit.
Heretics educate their followers with
theology alone, so when they encounter other theories, they are
beaten. It is so pitiful. Pseudo priests are good at ministering
without the word of God. They preach, consult, and minister based
only on their own misguided convictions. Those who minister and
preach without the word of God are heretics and hirelings (John
Pseudo ministers are heretics because
their inward and outward selves are different. Some people define
churches that do not fit into the established denominations as heretical
churches. But some of those churches do not want to belong to any
denomination because most churches are far from the Bible.
Heretics tell their followers to be
redeemed even though they themselves have never solved the problem
of their sins. They are committing the sin of Jeroboam. If there
is anyone who still has sin in his heart but tries to do the works
of God, he has to realize that his sins and the holiness of God
are utterly incompatible. He has to know he is a heretic.
Therefore, if anyone who preaches
or has duties in the church is still a sinner, he ought to realize
that he is a heretic. He is a heretic because he does not know the
gospel of Christ's salvation, the gospel of being born again of
water and the Spirit. If one learns the Bible from a heretic and
teaches others in the same way, he becomes a heretic.
We can know the tree by its fruit.
Those who have become righteous by believing in the baptism of Jesus
and His blood can only bear the righteous while those who are still
sinners are doomed to bear sinners. "Even so, every good
tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit" (Matthew
WHAT DO HERETIC PRIESTS PREACH
IN THEIR SERMONS?
do heretic priests preach
in their sermons?
theology and man's thoughts
False priests watch out for this and
that. Why so careful! They have to watch out lest their lies be
disclosed because they do not have the sound faith of being born
again of water and the Spirit.
Heretics take a little here and a
little there. They deceive people and teach without knowing the
true meaning of the gospel.
"Precept upon precept, precept
upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little there
a little" (Isaiah 28:13).
Line upon line, they say, "Er,
this word means so and so in Greek and so and so in Hebrew. And
there are such and such theories." They also warn people to
be careful if they encounter a theory of salvation expressed in
a black-and-white terms. They say, "Martin Luther said this
and John Calvin said that while John Knox said such and such, and
we think they all make sense in their own ways."
They neither know what they are talking
about nor what they believe in. He who has true faith can express
the truth in black-and-white terms. True believers can clearly tell
the difference between the born again and those not born again.
We clearly preach the gospel of being born again of water and the
But heretics are in chaos. Their faith
is like a bat. Just as a bat prefers the inside of a cave during
the day and the outside world only at night, heretics like this
theory and that, believe this and that. They never know what the
truth is. When a heretic priest goes to hell, his followers accompany
him to the bitter end. So many people end up in hell because they
believe in false prophets.
Is your minister born again of water
and the Spirit? Does he preach the words of the gospel of being
born again as it is written in the Bible? If he does, you are indeed
fortunate, and if he doesn't, you will be damned. If you are not
born again, you must listen to the gospel of the water and the Spirit,
read books that explain it, and be born again.
Heretics dislike the gospel of being
born again of water and the Spirit. They preach, "Jesus Christ
came to blot out our sins, and He did just that. He is still washing
away our sins today and will continue to do so in the future."
How can this be true? They say they are righteous but they go right
on sinning. They are righteous one moment, sinners the next.
Theirs is a false theology. It is
a fake. Anyone who is righteous now and a sinner later is a heretic,
a false prophet. Anyone who condemns himself, who corrupts himself
is the same.
THE CURSE OF GOD IS ON THE
FOLLOWERS OF HERETICS
what do heretics place
the most emphasis?
Heretics are not consistent. Therefore
they cannot lead their followers to be born again of water and the
Spirit when their followers go to them and ask them how to be born
again. Rather, they give their followers the ridiculous idea that
man can be born again of fantasy and that he can't be aware when
he is born again. It is so ridiculous.
Jesus said in John chapter 3, "Unless
one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom
of God." But these days, righteous people who are born
again are called presumptuous heretics.
Heretic priests say they cannot call
themselves righteous because they are humble. They tell their followers,
"Don't attend any revival meetings at which the preacher plans
to speak the blessing of being born again of water and the Spirit.
If you are born again, you will become a heretic. You will be denounced
by this church. If you want to be with us, stay a sinner, and God
will make you righteous when the time comes." That is what
they say. What they really mean is that it is up to you to decide
to be born again or not.
Heretics tell their followers, "You
have to stay with us, but being born again is your responsibility.
So, you try on your own. Just stay as you are now, and go before
God when the time comes, then you will find out the truth. I don't
know what will happen after that. But this is an orthodox church,
so you have to stay with us." Do you think this is true?
These heretic priests take a little
from here and a little from there and make up a theory. Then it
becomes the only truth for them. They don't know about the word
of God which tells us about the water and the Spirit.
Heretics interpret the Bible according
to their own thoughts. We have to interpret the Bible according
to the words per se, but they interpret it their own way. That is
why there are so many theologians and denominations in Christianity.
Because there are so many heretical
denominations and theologians, there are a countless number of heretical
books. Pseudo priests cite a little from this book and a little
from that book when they preach. But true priests preach from the
Heretics extort money from their followers
in many cunning ways. They eat and live well in this world and end
up in hell because they failed to be born again. This is the end
that God has prepared for them.
God endures them in the beginning.
But to those who steadfastly refuse to accept the blessing of being
born again of water and the Spirit, He will send them to hell.
God will judge heretics. Heretics
believe in God very fervently and consume volumes and volumes of
Bible commentary and theological works in the beginning. But then
little by little they begin to preach from the precepts of man,
so that their followers can never be born again.
Heretics put more emphasis on their
works. Any minister who does not preach the gospel of being born
again of water and the Spirit is a heretic before God.
They pressure their followers to no
end. They coerce them to attend 40-day all-night prayers, 100-day
early morning prayers, mountain prayers, to fast on a regular basis,
to make contributions for building churches, a thousand burnt offerings,
contributions for revival meetings...and they even draw up a graph
to show how much each believer has contributed. Just by looking
at the fruits of their works, we can see that they are heretics.
The curse of God befalls their followers,
too. Ministers who preach without being born again and their followers
are all under the curse of God.
HERETICS TRY TO READ THE
MINDS OF THEIR FOLLOWERS
do heretics try to read
the minds of their followers?
they are not born again
but minister with hypocrisy
and without the Spirit
in their hearts.
Heretic priests cry every day. They
have to be sure to please senior deacons and deaconesses, elders,
ordinary deacons and even laymen. It is how they get on every day.
They behave as hypocrites every day.
"Ho~ly and Mer~ciful...." They are full of sin but they
have to say holy things, so they become more hypocritical with every
A preacher once said, "It is
a curse to minister without the Spirit inside." What this means
is that it is heretical to do the work of God without being redeemed;
it is a cursed life. If you are one of these heretics, you have
to be born again of water and the Spirit.
Anyone who believes in Jesus but is
not born again is a heretic. And everyone has to turn back to the
gospel of being born again of water and the Spirit. Only the righteous
who are born again of water and the Spirit can preach the gospel
HERETICS CRY OUT FOR PEACE
do heretic priests satisfy
always cry out for peace,
saying their followers can enter
into the kingdom of heaven
even though they are sinners.
Isaiah 28:14-15 says, "Therefore
hear the word of the Lord, you scornful men, who rule this people
who are in Jerusalem, because you have said, 'We have made a covenant
with death, and with Sheol we are in agreement. When the overflowing
scourge passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made
lies our refuge, and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.'"
Who are the scornful men here? They
are those who preach the word of God, mixing in their own mistaken
beliefs. Whatever a preacher's thoughts are, whatever theology says,
he has to offer a true interpretation of the Bible. But heretic
priests preach the Bible in the way they see fit. These are the
"We have made a covenant with
death, and with Sheol we are in agreement. When the overflowing
scourge passes through, it will not come to us."
Heretics say that the scourge will
not pass through them. They tell people not to worry. Destruction
and hell is awaiting them, but they say not to worry, destruction
and hell do not exist for them. So you have to stay away from those
heretics if you wish to live.
Heretics say that you don't have to
be born again of water and the Spirit. Is it true? No, absolutely
not. You cannot enter the kingdom of heaven unless you are born
again of water and the Spirit.
Is it all right not to enter the kingdom
of heaven? This is the same as asking if it is all right to burn
in hell. Needless to say, the answer to both questions is no. Let
us all believe in the gospel of being born again of water and the
Spirit and enter the kingdom of heaven together.
Heretic priests seduce people, saying
that because they believe in Jesus, it is all right for them to
remain a sinner and that they will not go to hell.
Does Jesus take care of you even if
you are a sinner? Can a sinner go to heaven? Can you avoid hell
even though you are a sinner? Is it written in the Bible that you
don't have to go to hell when you believe in Jesus, even though
you have sin in your heart?
Heretics say that they have made a
covenant with death, so that death will not come to them. They say
a believer can avoid being condemned to hell even if he has sin
in his heart. Do you think it really happens this way?
Heretics inspire people with confidence,
saying that death and hell do not await them. Heretic priests appoint
those who are not born again to be deacons, elders, ministers. But
they have to know that they will all end up in hell because they
do not believe in the gospel of the water and the Spirit. What they
should do is to instill in their followers the belief in the gospel
of the water and the Spirit.
Are believers, even if they are sinners,
still eligible for entry into heaven? Can a sinner go to heaven?
Does the Bible say that sinners can go to heaven? No. Can there
be a righteous man with sin? No. These are the teachings of heresy
and pseudo theology.
The Bible says, "The wages
of sin is death" (Romans 6:23). It is the law of God. He
sends all sinners to hell. But all those who are born again of water
and the Spirit are welcomed into heaven.
"When the overflowing scourge
passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our
refuge, and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves." Heretic
priests speak words to that effect and firmly believe that they
will not go to hell even though they have sin in their hearts. Because
they are hiding behind false theology, God can't do anything to
help them. They believe in their theology alone. Because they believe
in their theology instead of God's word, they are heretics and sinners
destined for hell. How sad it is that there are so many of them.
HERETICS ARE INTERESTED ONLY
the aim of heretic priests?
extort as much money as possible
from their followers
Heretics and pseudo priests are only
interested in money. They are covetous. "How much money will
this man offer if he comes to my church?" They think about
the tithe he will pay. This is just like worshipping a golden calf.
"Please let me become successful, let me make a lot of money,
Lord." Pseudo priests teach people to pray like that.
They say, "If you believe in
Jesus, you will make a lot of money, you will conceive when you
are barren, and you will be successful in your business."
So many people are deceived by these
pseudo priests, and they are extorted of their money and go to hell
for their troubles. How unfair this is! If someone who has come
under the spell of heresy comes to his senses, he will be surprised
to find out how much money he has contributed to his deceivers.
He will reproach himself for his own foolishness in following and
working so hard for them.
Heretics are especially fervent practitioners
of what they consider a legitimate religion. Their followers devote
themselves to early morning prayers, mountain prayers, special contributions,
tithe, weekly offerings. There are so many reasons to take money
from their followers.
Their followers work so hard, but
they still have sin in their hearts because no one has taught them
the gospel of the water and the Spirit. Some ask them about it,
but they never get an answer. Anyone who is not born again of water
and the Spirit is a heretic.
PITIFUL HERETICS AND THEIR
are the most pitiful men in the world?
who minister without being born again
of water and the Spirit
"Oh, you pitiful heretics! You
work on your redemption first!" The paramount sign of pseudo
faith is to worship the golden calves of Jeroboam. The first thing
heretics did in Old Testament times was to build a temple and stock
it with golden calves (1 Kings 12:25-33).
These days, they build large churches
and extort money from their followers. They tell their followers
to get loans from banks to contribute for the construction of a
grand church. They work up the emotions of the congregation and
pass around the collection dishes. Money, rings, gold watches fill
the dish in no time. Heretics work this way. It is the same in every
one of the heretic churches.
Outwardly they seem to be interested
in spiritual things, but in reality they are interested only in
money. I advise you to stay away from churches that care only about
money. Please don't go to churches where only the rich are treated
cordially. It is wrong to announce the amount of each congregation's
offerings because they do it in hopes of attracting more money.
Heretics say tempting words to their
"You will be blessed if you believe
"Devote yourself to the works
of God. The more you do, the more blessed you shall be."
"If you serve as an elder, you
will be materially blessed."
So their followers vie with each other
to become elders. If there weren't any compensation, who would want
to serve as an elder? And the elders are expected to contribute
financially as well.
They are elected based on how deeply
they believe in the doctrine of the denomination, how prominent
they are in society and how much money they can contribute to the
church? It is true.
Heretics care only about money. They
are interested in building large churches. They don't care if their
followers go to hell as long as they offer a lot of money.
Heretics are those who work for bread.
They snare their people with fancy titles. They issue the titles
to their followers at random (Ezekiel 13:17-19). This is meant to
tie them to the church and increase its wealth. Heretics do not
preach the gospel of the water and the Spirit. They just try to
Even someone who has attended a church
for only a few months can become a deacon. Moreover, if he is well
acquainted with the doctrine and has a sound financial background,
he is elevated to elder. This is all in the shameful tradition of
the sin of Jeroboam, who replaced God with a golden calf.
Heretics worship golden calves. They
do not make their people born again. They only take money from their
followers by tempting them with promises of secular blessings. They
do not care if their followers are condemned to hell as long as
their church is on sound financial ground.
HERETICS LACK CONVICTION
IN THEIR SERMONS
Heretics like to say "probably"
or "maybe" frequently because they lack conviction in
what they are saying. They do not have faith in the word of God
and they do not truly believe in what they preach. Their belief
system does not lie within the faith in the word of God. They say,
"It could be said that...." They never speak clearly and
with conviction. It would be better if they did not teach their
followers anything rather than teaching lies.
Heretics cannot lead people to be
born again of water and the Spirit. They just condemn more people
HERETICS PLAY THE ROLE OF
against the Spirit?
believe in Jesus while living as
a sinner who doesn't believe in
Matthew chapter 7 tells us about those
who believe in Jesus and end up in hell. Heretics will protest before
God on the last day. As it is written in the Bible, "Many
will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied
in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders
in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you;
depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'" (Matthew 7:22-23)
They do not believe that Jesus washed
away all the sins of man; they do not believe in the gospel of the
water and the Spirit.
They practice lawlessness. What does
this mean? It means they tell people to believe in Jesus when they
still have sin in their hearts. You may wonder what is so wrong
with this but it is a serious sin against God.
When a sinner preaches to other people
the necessity of believing in Jesus, he cannot lead them to be born
again because he was not himself born again of water and the Spirit.
Therefore heretics only produce sinners who believe in Jesus. It
is a sin against the Spirit to practice lawlessness.
Heretics neither believe in the word
of God nor preach the gospel as it is written. They just extort
money from their followers. They are sinners even though they believe
in Jesus. They try to lead others when they are not born again themselves.
In this way, they practice lawlessness.
HERETICS ARE PALE IMITATIONS
OF THE RIGHTEOUS
do we distinguish between
those who have been born again and
those who have not?
can distinguish by testing whether
they have sin or not.
Do not be deceived by those false
preachers who say they are sinners. Do not offer them your money.
Don't give your hard-earned money to those sinners.
Why would you give money to those
preachers who cannot help you with your sins? If you want to give
your money to a church, at least wait until your sins are blotted
out through the gospel of the water and the Spirit.
Just as there are imitations in art,
there are also imitations in life. There are, for example, imitative
religions that can't wash away all sins in the heart. How can you
identify an imitative religion? An imitation is something that looks
genuine from the outside but is in fact far from the real thing.
You have to decide for yourself. Who
are the true preachers? Who are the heretics? What is the orthodox
faith? The orthodox believe in Jesus and His redemptive power. They
have no sin in their hearts. But heretics have sin in their hearts.
Then, are all people like these heretics?
It may be so. But let us go back to the Bible. Anyone who believes
in Jesus and is not born again is a heretic. It is clear that the
born again are the orthodox. Then, those who are not born again
are heretics. Heretics are those who believe in Jesus but still
have sin in their hearts.
Heretics are imitations of the righteous.
They may know that the way to become sanctified is by believing
in Jesus but unfortunately they still have sin in their hearts.
They believe themselves to be sinners. They claim that they can
still go to heaven and they say that they worship God. It sounds
very much like they are righteous, but let us not be deceived by
THE JUDGMENT OF GOD AWAITS
was the pure gospel
and heretics mixed man's mistaken beliefs
in with the pure gospel.
"Therefore the Lord says,
the Lord of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel, 'Ah, I will rid Myself
of My adversaries, and take vengeance on My enemies. I will turn
My hand against you, and thoroughly purge away your dross, and take
away all your alloy. I will restore your judges as at the first,
and your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you shall be
called the city of righteousness, the faithful city.' Zion shall
be redeemed with justice, and her penitents with righteousness.
The destruction of transgressors and of sinners shall be together,
and those who forsake the Lord shall be consumed. For they shall
be ashamed of the terebinth trees which you have desired; and you
shall be embarrassed because of the gardens which you have chosen.
For you shall be as a terebinth whose leaf fades, and as a garden
that has no water. The strong shall be a tinder, and the work of
it as a spark; both will burn together, and no one shall quench
them" (Isaiah 1:24-31).
God tells us that if we believe in
man, we shall be ashamed because of man. He tells us that we shall
be ashamed because of the church we have chosen for ourselves, and
this shame will be like a tree whose leaves fade like a garden that
has no water.
He tells us that false priests and
their followers who believe in the precepts of man rather than the
word of God will become tinder and their works spark. Both will
burn in hell. False preachers and heretics who have not been redeemed
as well as sinners and enemies of the righteous shall be judged
with the flame of God.
Churches built on theology alone may
look grand outside, but there's nothing inside. Any church that
is not founded on belief of the word of God and the gospel of being
born again of water and the Spirit is like a garden that has no
It may be a tree, but it is a dead
tree which is unable to bear fruit. When a well does not have water,
it is no longer a well.
"The strong shall be a tinder,
and the work of it as a spark; both will burn together, and no one
shall quench them." Those who do not have the Spirit may
look strong to other men, but in the eyes of God, they are like
tinder bound for the fires of hell.
The Lord asks, "Watchman,
what of the night?" (Isaiah 21:11) The righteous who have
eternal life should preach the gospel of the water and the Spirit
in the dark of the night.
God is light and Satan darkness. God
leads people to righteousness and Satan leads people to false temples
with chaos and false theology.
In the time of the prophet Isaiah,
the people's faith was as chaotic as now. They mixed up the word
of God with the theologies and precepts of man. They misled the
people of Israel with the chaotic products of man so much that God
decided to get rid of them all.
"And take away all your alloy.
I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors
as at the beginning." The offerings which will never be
accepted by God are like alloy, a mixture of God's truth and man's
God never accepts offerings that are
mixed. They may look pure to the human eye, but if they are mixed
in with man's mistaken beliefs they are mixed with impurities and
thus not acceptable to God.
God scolded the people of Israel,
especially heretics, pseudo preachers and sinners.
If we read Exodus or Numbers, we can
see that God didn't scold them in the beginning. God helped the
people of Israel and bestowed blessings on them. But after Joshua's
death, from Judges, the people of Israel were invaded.
However, they chose to go their own
way. At that time, God sent the prophet Jeremiah and told Israel
to surrender to Babylon.
Jeremiah told the people to surrender
to Babylon. This has a spiritual meaning, symbolizing the fact that
the righteous tell those who follow heretics to surrender to the
gospel of the water and the Spirit.
GOD REPROVES HERETICS
does God reprove heretics?
they serve idols instead of God.
Why did the servants of God scold
the people of Israel? Because they changed the sacrificial system,
appointed ordinary people to be priests, and changed the dates of
They changed the Day of Atonement
from the tenth day of the seventh month to the fifth day of the
eighth month and appointed priests from outside the Levites. They
thus blocked the way to being born again.
God scolded the false preachers. Those
who served golden calves instead of God became heretic priests.
In fact, God didn't scold them just
for worshiping idols. Don't you and I sometimes worship idols, too?
We sin so often, but our iniquities are not considered to be grave
sins only because we are in the grace of God. But replacing God
with golden calves cannot be forgiven. And the same goes for changing
the sacrificial system and appointing ordinary people to the priesthood.
What terrible sins these are! They
are the gravest sins. How can one be pardoned for exchanging God
for golden calves! It is written in the Bible that it was the sin
of Jeroboam which brought on the wrath of God.
Just as God showed His wrath in the
Old Testament, He now destroys sinners who are against Him. God
told Israel that He would curse those who did not turn away from
worshiping golden calves.
HERETICS OFFER LAWLESS SACRIFICES
do we have to do before
we can serve God?
all our sins washed away.
The kings and heretic priests of Israel
were against God and they appointed those who disregarded the sacrificial
system to the priesthood. Jeroboam, the king with a warped mind,
ordained someone who was not from the house of Levi as a priest.
Only those who were from the house
of Levi could become priests and work in the tabernacle. More precisely,
priests had to be from the house of Aaron. This was the eternal
law of God. But Jeroboam ordained priests from outside the house
of Levi and had them offer sacrifices to golden calves. We should
know how this brought on the wrath of God.
Even today, those who are not born
again can become ministers, elders, and deacons in the church. This
goes against the law of God and invites His wrath. Is God pleased
with lawless sacrifices? Heretics have to destroy their golden calves
and return to God and be born again.
Isaiah 1:10-17 says, "Hear
the word of the Lord, you rulers of Sodom; give ear to the law of
our God, you people of Gomorrah: 'To what purpose is the multitude
of your sacrifices to Me?' says the Lord. 'I have had enough of
burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fed cattle. I do not delight
in the blood of bulls, or of lambs or goats. When you come to appear
before Me, who has required this from your hand, to trample My courts?
Bring no more futile sacrifices; insense is an abomination to Me.
The New Moons, the Sabbaths, and the calling of assemblies-I cannot
endure iniquity and the sacred meeting. Your New Moons and your
appointed feasts My soul hates; they are a trouble to Me, I am weary
of bearing them. When you spread out your hands, I will hide My
eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I will not hear.
Your hands are full of blood. Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean;
put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do
evil, learn to do good; seek justice, rebuke the oppressor; defend
the fatherless, plead for the widow.'"
If we read this passage carefully,
we can see that the religious leaders of Israel were very devout.
But despite their devotion, they were destroyed because they offered
the wrong sacrifices and disobeyed the law of God.
We can see that they neither followed
the law of God when they offered sacrifices nor heeded the word
of God. These leaders were so devoted that they made countless offerings
before God. The Bible says that the blood flowed like a river inside
But when God looked at what they did,
He said that it was like the sin of Gomorrah. He saw that they were
making offerings before Him, but in fact, they were sinning.
He said it was better not to bring offerings at all. He didn't want
As they offered the sacrifices before
golden calves, God could not forgive their sins. He could not stand
it anymore. He told them they should offer sacrifices according
to the way He commanded. If not, it would be better for them not
to offer sacrifices at all.
Their sacrifices were not offered
to God in the right way, and as a result, the priests sinned against
God. You should know that to serve God and do His work without washing
away your sins is a grave sin before Him.
HERETICS ARE LIKE SCHOOL
do heretics teach?
teach ethics, not how to be born again.
Heretics look outwardly holy. When
they occupy the pulpit, they look so impressive that many are deceived
by their appearance. They sound so logical. And they always conclude
their sermons by admonishing the people to be good. What kind of
sermon is that? What is the difference between their sermons and
the lessons of school teachers?
The church of God is the place where
the born again come together to worship God. Only this kind of church
is a true church. The true church of God does not try to teach how
to behave before God. The preacher of the true church preaches the
gospel of the water and the Spirit. No matter how infirm you are,
God washed away all your sins.
Heretic preachers tell their followers,
"Do this, and do that," putting heavy loads on them, but
they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
A heretic preacher buys his child
an expensive violin and sends him abroad to study. How can a priest
afford to do that? Where does he get the money? If he has that kind
of money, shouldn't he spend it to preach the gospel? Should a preacher
drive an expensive car? Does he have to ride in a luxury car to
be dignified? A preacher who drives an expensive car is a thief.
When his followers can't even afford to buy a compact car, how can
it be right for him to have a deluxe model? We can tell a heretic
preacher just by looking at his deeds.
Heretic preachers ask for large sums
of money. Some churches pay their preachers over $10,000 a month.
And this is only the official pay. They are provided with educational
fees, fees for books, child-care fees, visitation fees to name just
And still, some of them complain that
they are not paid enough. They get $10,000 a month and ask for more
money. Is $10,000 chicken-feed? A preacher should be content with
earning just enough to get by as he preaches the gospel of the water
and the Spirit.
A true preacher takes consolation
and peace from God. But a heretic preacher who has no peace asks
for monetary compensation. Such preachers are in fact worshiping
The church of God is sometimes called
Zion. There is no church as beautiful as Zion. The church of God
is the place where the gospel of the water and the Spirit is preached.
Isaiah 1:21 says, "How the
faithful city has become a harlot! It was full of justice; righteousness
lodged in it, but now murderers." Isaiah describes the
church of God, saying, "It was full of justice."
God is just and fair. Because we are
incomplete, because we are the descendants of Adam and born to sin,
Jesus came to this world to wash away our sins with the water and
the Spirit. This is how fair God is.
In the Old Testament, when people
knew that they were insufficient, they came to God and offered sacrifices.
"I did wrong in such and such a way. I was at fault."
Then they were forgiven for their daily sins, and they were also
able to obtain forgiveness for their year's sins once on the Day
Similarly, in the New Testament, Jesus
Christ came to this world and was baptized and crucified to wash
away the sins of mankind once and for all.
But at the New Year's Service, many
people cry and repent, "Dear God, please forgive me for the
sins I committed last year. And please bless me in the new year."
Those people are heretics.
Then, what is the truth of being born
again of water and the Spirit? Jesus came to the world about 2000
years ago, washed away the sins of mankind once and for all and
thus saved us from sin forever. He saved us from all the sins of
the world with the water and the blood. But if we asked for forgiveness
every day, what would He say?
"How the faithful city has
become a harlot! It was full of justice, but now murderers."
Anyone who calls himself a sinner is a heretic.
HERETIC PRIESTS CANNOT PREACH
THE GOSPEL OF BEING BORN AGAIN OF WATER AND THE SPIRIT
God hear the prayers of sinners?
He can't hear them because their sins
separate them from God.
Our God calls those who believe in
Him and ask for forgiveness murderers. Since they ask for forgiveness
and also say they are sinners, do they expect Jesus to return and
die for their sins a second time? The baptism and the Cross of Jesus
are the reality of salvation.
In 1 Peter 3:21, it says that the
baptism of Jesus is the antitype of our salvation. Jesus Christ
died once to save mankind from sin. He washed away mankind's sins
once for all and was resurrected three days later. He now sits at
the right hand of God.
Jesus Christ was baptized once and
died once at the Cross to save us from sin forever. He was baptized
by John the Baptist when He was 30. He died once to save us from
all the sins of the world. Doesn't this mean that judgment was given
for all time?
If heretics say they are still sinners,
they are asking Him to come down a second time and be crucified
again. In fact, He would have to keep doing so every time they ask
Those who believe in the gospel of
the water and the Spirit in their hearts are saved from sin forever,
become righteous, go to heaven to receive God's blessing and eternal
life. Whoever meets the righteous can be saved through water and
the Spirit and become one of the blessed people of God. Anyone who
asks righteous salvation before God shall be blessed.
Let us read Isaiah 1:18-20. "'Come
now, and let us reason together,' says the Lord, 'though your sins
are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are
red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and
obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse
and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword;' for the mouth of
the Lord has spoken."
God is telling us that if we are obedient
to the gospel of the water and the Spirit, we shall eat the good
of the land, but if we refuse and rebel, we shall be devoured by
Our God said, "Come now, and
let us reason together. Let us talk. Are you insufficient? Are you
unrighteous? Do you love yourself too much? Can't you live by the
commandments? Can't you do what the law dictates? You know but cannot
practice? Then, come to Me. Though your sins are like scarlet, they
shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they
shall be as wool." This means that God saved sinners justly
and made them righteous.
There was no sin when God created
Adam and Eve. But Satan soon came on the scene. He tempted them
to disobey God and made all mankind sinners by making them sin.
Satan caused man's fall. In the beginning, Adam and Eve were not
sinners before God. They lived with God in the garden of Eden. But
they became sinners. So now, God is calling us. Come and let us
reason together. Let us reason together!
"How much sin have you committed
in this world? And how much sin will you commit before you die?"
"Oh, God. It is impossible not
to sin. We can't become sanctified no matter how hard we try."
"Well, then how much sin have
you committed until now?"
"Well, Lord, I can't remember
everything, but there are a few that stick in my mind. You remember
that time? You know what I am talking about . . . and
there's that other time, You know..."
Then God says, "So go on and
tell Me. Do you think that's all? Do you know how many besides those?
But all the sins that you remember, all the sins that you have forgotten,
and even all the sins you shall commit in the future, I washed all
of them away forever. And not just yours, but your children's and
their children's, down to all your descendants' sins. I am the righteous
God. I washed away your sins once for all."
God, who washed away all the sins
of mankind from Adam's sin to the sins of the last man on earth,
is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.
"I am the Savior and Almighty
"I am Jehovah, the Merciful God."
"I will have mercy on those who
well deserve mercy, and I will have compassion on those who well
If we ask for His mercy and are frank
with Him, we can have God's compassion. Our Father wants to bless
all of us. He wants all of us to become righteous. In His love and
compassion, He wants to make all of us His righteous children.
does God want us to do after we are born again?
wants us to preach the gospel all over the world.
He wants us to be white as snow. Jesus
washed away the sins of mankind once and for all through His baptism
and His blood. If a church cannot solve the problems of sin and
life for all believers, it cannot be called the true church of God.
People come to priests and ask, "I
have sin. What shall I do? I repent and have repented so many times,
but my sins did not go away. I can't go on any more. I don't think
I can carry on with my religious life." If a priest cannot
give him the right answer to his problems, he is a heretic. He may
say, "It is up to you. Go pray in the mountains. Try a 40-day
Heretic priests or religious leaders
are so full of impurities that they don't even know the gospel of
the water and the Spirit. They don't know whether their souls will
end up in hell or heaven.
Those leaders are not right before
God. They are pseudos and heretics. They look as if they believe
in Jesus from the outside, but their hearts are still full of sin.
They have not been washed of their sins. They cannot preach the
gospel of the water and the Spirit that can wash away all sins.
Let us not be deceived by them.
Titus 3:10-11 says of heretics,
"Reject a divisive man after the first and second admonition,
knowing that such a person is warped and sinning, being self-condemned."
Because they believe in Jesus but are not born again, they condemn
themselves as sinners. They ignore and trample down the gospel of
the water and the Spirit, saying they are sinners who cannot but
go to hell.

They are heretics in Christianity.
Anyone who believes in Jesus and has sin is a heretic. Heretics
differ from God. God is holy. But they are not holy. Those who believe
in the gospel of the water and the Spirit are cleansed of all their
sins. So whoever believes in Jesus but has sin is a heretic. We
have to stay away from those who say that they believe in God but
are still sinners.
Let us preach the gospel to those
who have not heard it yet and those who want to believe but can't

us repel those who stand in the way of the gospel of the water and
We must preach the gospel of being
