    how is orthodoxy exempt from this babylon?
    did not orthodox and roman catholic persicute the arirus and
    his followers, did not orthodoxy and roman catholic destroy
    the hyruliii the vandala’s and the ostigoths.
    The memory of Christ Jesus is long and a open book, and inspect thy own
    house. while every word you say about Zionism may be true
    there is more to this story that any one Journalist or Inquisitor could

    • othelzer. I am having great difficulty deciphering your incoherent and misspelled comment. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and presume that English is not your first language.

      The Church did not ‘persecute’ Arius and his followers. There was a time when the Arians were in the majority. Arius was an anti-Christ heretic who denied our Lord Jesus Christ’s sacred Divinity. He was eventually defeated by the noble endeavours of such great saints as St. Athanasius. Now, to you, heresy maybe small matter, but God doesn’t take it lightly. You have clearly been infected by Protestantism; ie, private interpretation of Scripture and the modernistic notion of subjective truth. Whether you like it or not it matters to your salvation what you believe about the things of God.

      The heresy of Arianism never went away. It continues to manifest itself under different names such as Unitarianism and the Jehovah’s Witness sect.

    The reality is each individual is personally responsible for his or her own actions, even words that are spoken, according to Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 12:36). Organisations are fine but, in the main, they promote authority rather than servitude. Technically, the church is ‘the called out ones’ which is about individuals functioning in communion with the Holy Spirit, not a clergy and a laity that creates a ‘them and us’ culture.

    Evangelicalism is just another brand name for a movement. Today, Pentecostalism is the most pervasive movement worldwide, even though it splintered and takes many forms. Since Azusa St, 1906, this movement has become the harbinger to the Second Coming of Lord Jesus Christ. However, US style Pentecostalism has been infiltrated and the fire in the movement has been quenched by the putrefied Laocidean lukewarmness, and this has permeated congregations worldwide.

    Prosperity tends to choke true love for Lord Jesus Christ. So does institutionalism and theoretical constructs that are really philosophical assumptions promoted as doctrinal truth that create divisions. For only a relationship with Lord Jesus Christ that is alive and continuing is acceptable:
    “But I have this against you, that you left your first love” (Revelation 2:4).
