33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
From this documentary, Daniel Matt said,
“At times of crisis, at times of suffering…when people are trying to satisfy their own need for order and meaning and fulfillment, Myticism can provide some of the answer to that”.
What does the Bible say…
6 Jesus saith unto him, “I am”…the way…the truth…and…the life:…no man cometh unto the Father…but by me.
More of what the Bible says…
1 John 4
1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
People are Not Gods
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
The Character of God
5 Now the Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. 6 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, 7 keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin…
24 So he drove out the man (as in mankind, Adam and Eve) ; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
(Btw, this disproves that mankind is naturally immortal. God kept the tree of life from Adam and Eve.
Only God has immortality and only God can bestow immortality.)
1 Timothy 6
14……until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:
15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;
16 Who ONLY hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.
False Religion Exposed by Vain Repetitions
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
