Just Another Day in Corinth: ‘Pastor’ David Devereaux Preaching on Homosexuals in Church and Clergy…False Teaching in the Church

Desert Spring United Methodist Church – Summerlin is not teaching according to sound doctrine, so please be careful.  I say this with love and sadness.  This is the same thing that happened at Corinth.  Remember, the Bible warns us: “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but… Read More

Sozoed from sozo? A closer look at the Greek definition and how Jude’s letter says to ‘sozo’…

Hello!  Please note that I have finally added a “follow” button to the right side of this page (that is, if you find these articles educational and would like to subscribe). The inventors of sozo have named it this, claiming they know the Greek meaning.  Whenever an individual says they know the “Greek” origin of a word, they (can) sound like they know just what they are talking about!  Perhaps this makes them look more competent and that they have done their research.  Many manipulative teachers carry out this tactic these days… Read More

How important is ‘doctrine’?

How important is doctrine to Jesus? Very! So important is right teaching to Jesus that He says anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in it does not have God. “Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them. Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work” (2 John 1:9-11).

Are you a ‘vessel of honor’? Cleanse yourself from the false teachers and become one!

Been looking at a few verses in the Bible.  2 Timothy 2:21 speaks of “vessels of honor”.  Here is what it says…  “Ifa man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honor, sanctified, and fit for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work” (emphasis mine). If we as Christians want to be used by God, we must purge, or cleanse, ourselves from “these”.  If we don’t, we will be a “vessel for dishonor”.  What is “these” referring to?Many people want to be used by God, set… Read More

Good division or evil division? Division in the church….what did Paul teach? Bethel Church and Christianity and 1 Corinthians 1:12

For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you. (1 Corinthians 11:19)This scripture really stuck out today. This comes right after verse 18 in 1 Cor. 11 which speaks of divisions in the church. Paul was telling the Corinthians that when they come together, there are divisions. I checked the cross references for this, and the divisions Paul is speaking of is that in Corinth, some Christians were saying they followed Paul, others Cephas while others were saying they followed Apollos and… Read More

Is it really the Holy Spirit? Bethel Church and Christianity…

Was reading in the Word this morning, and a question came up in my mind.  I posted this question on the Bethel Church and Christianity Forum today: “Acts 5:32 — “And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.” I read this today and was wondering if these people are really teaching by the Holy Spirit, why is it that they are not departing/separating themselves from the false teachings/teachers? That would be obedience to God (Romans 16:17), and… Read More
