Most Pastors today do not fully teach only Scriptural words or concepts. Instead, they have unknowingly embraced the re-defined word definitions of their respective Theologians.
And as a result of feeding on a mixture of truth and error, these Pastors, and the multitudes that follow them, will not be allowed to ‘enter in’ to that part of the Promised Land that is called the City of the King, according to Scripture (Matt 19:17; Rev 22:14).
Those who will not be allowed to ‘enter in’ to the City of the King, are those who will not receive their “full reward” as the apostle John warns (2John 1:8).
This is first of a series revealing the importance and simplicity of the Gospel as presented in the Scriptures, as opposed to the twisted concepts taught by the Doctrines and Commandments of Men.
For example, most Pastors and Theologians today will tell you that “Sin” is defined as “missing the mark.” But what does the Bible say?
“Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.” (1John 3:4)
This and many other Scriptures reveal that Sin is defined as “Transgression of the Law of Moses.” So, why have Theologians changed the definition of sin?
There is one simple reason. Because if satan can not prevent you from “coming out” by the Blood of the Lamb, he will try the next best thing — he will try to prevent you from “entering in.” And to do that, satan must, through deception, get rid of any New Covenant doctrines that relate to the “Law.”
The Scriptural definition of New Covenant ‘Sin’ is based on the Law of Moses. So according to satan’s devices, the Biblical definition of ‘Sin’ had to be re-defined, so that ‘Law’ could be removed from New Covenant Truth.
This will be more clearly seen in the next of the Series: “What Your Pastor Never Told You About… The Law.”
