In the Bible, and particularly in the New Testament, we are
constantly warned, over and over again, to beware of false
brethren, wolves in sheep's clothing, and outside children
of the world who rely upon their cunning craftiness in order
to try to sow division amongst the Christian brethren, and
pervert the true Gospel of Jesus Christ, with their strange
doctrines, and their twisted, ungodly interpretations of the
Scriptures, or by their total denial of the same.

Surely, we have seen these things come to pass in this, our
current day, as these antichrists go about preaching their
doctrines of devils. Our Christian faith is without a doubt
under attack from these grievous wolves who lie in wait to
deceive, and who preach another Jesus, and another Gospel.
They are hereticks of the first order who have itching ears,
and who just love to listen to seducing spirits. Therefore,
we must avoid them, and not even bid them God speed. While
that may seem harsh, even the Apostle Paul says "let him be
accursed". That is how seriously the First Century Apostles
took false doctrine in the Church.

Please consider the following Scriptural warnings regarding
these deceptive antichrists and wolves, that are found in
both the Old and the New Testaments, and take heed to them:

"Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of
the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees
and of the Sadducees."
Matthew 16:12, KJV

"That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro,
and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the
sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in
wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up
into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:"
Ephesians 4:14-15, KJV

"Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For
it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace;
not with meats, which have not profited them that have been
occupied therein."
Hebrews 13:9, KJV

"As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went
into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they
teach no other doctrine, Neither give heed to fables and
endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than
godly edifying which is in faith: so do."
1 Timothy 1:3-4, KJV

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times
some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing
spirits, and doctrines of devils;"
1 Timothy 4:1, KJV

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound
doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to
themselves teachers, having itching ears;"
2 Timothy 4:3, KJV

"These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an
abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and
hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth
wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to
mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that
soweth discord among brethren."
Proverbs 6:16-19, KJV

"Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom
of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his
field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares
among the wheat, and went his way."
Matthew 13:24-25, KJV

"Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among
wolves."
Luke 10:3, KJV

"For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous
wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock."
Acts 20:29, KJV

"Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause
divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye
have learned; and avoid them."
Romans 16:17, KJV

"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve
through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from
the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh
preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye
receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or
another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well
bear with him...For such are false apostles, deceitful
workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of
Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into
an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his
ministers also be transformed as the ministers of
righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."
2 Corinthians 11:3-4, 13-15, KJV

"I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called
you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is
not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would
pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel
from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that
which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we
said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other
gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be
accursed."
Galatians 1:6-9, KJV

"And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who
came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in
Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:"
Galatians 2:4, KJV

"If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome
words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the
doctrine which is according to godliness; He is proud,
knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of
words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil
surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and
destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness:
from such withdraw thyself."
1 Timothy 6:3-5, KJV

"But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and
contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are
unprofitable and vain. A man that is an heretick after the
first and second admonition reject; Knowing that he that is
such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself."
Titus 3:9-11, KJV

"Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of
Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of
Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come
any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not
into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that
biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds."
2 John 1:9-11, KJV

As you can see by the previous verses, Jesus and the First
Century Apostles had some very strong things to say regarding
the wolves in sheep's clothing who would try to pervert the
true Gospel of Jesus Christ, with their doctrines of devils.
Consider a few of the key words and phrases that are found in
the previous verses:

another Jesus
any other gospel
avoid them
beware
cunning craftiness
depart from the faith
discord among brethren
doctrines of devils
every wind of doctrine
false brethren
grievous wolves
heretick
itching ears
let him be accursed
lie in wait to deceive
neither bid him God speed
receive him not into your house
seducing spirits
sow division
strange doctrines
wolves
wolves in sheep's clothing

So exactly who are some of these false brethren, hereticks,
antichrists and wolves who are trying to sow division in our
midst, in the hope of destroying our Christian faith from
within, as well as from without, through their vicious, evil
attacks, their strange ideas and their doctrines of devils?
While we cannot possibly keep tabs on all of the snakes in
the grass who preach another Jesus, and another gospel which
is not the true Gospel of Jesus Christ, below you will find a
partial list of these wolves in sheep's clothing, to which we
will be adding new members as our time permits.

If you are aware of anyone -- be they an individual, group,
or church -- who you personally feel should be included on
the watch list below, please feel free to contact us about
your concerns. In your message to us, we request that you
please explain in sufficient detail, why it is that you feel
that they should be added to this list. Please understand
that, in the case where you are bringing to our attention a
person, group, or church which claims to be Christian, we
require that you present us with a convincing Bible-based
argument, before we will seriously consider your request to
add them to this list. Thank-you for your help. We are most
appreciative.

1. ACLU - American Civil Liberties Union

The ACLU is in favor of such things as abortion and the gay
and lesbian lifestyle, while at the same time they oppose
school prayer, and seem to take a strong strand against our
faith when it comes to issues dealing with the separation of
church and state.

2. ADL - Anti-Defamation League

Similar to the ACLU, the ADL is likewise in favor of such
ungodly things as abortion and the gay and lesbian agenda,
while at the same time they oppose school prayer.

3. Branch Davidians

While I am not thoroughly versed on all of the doctrines of
the Branch Davidians and their former leader, David Koresh,
I was greatly disturbed by the fact that the sale and trade
of firearms was a regular part of their operations. The fact
that they eventually fired weapons when their compound was
under siege by the BATF was even more alarming, as this kind
of action totally contradicts the teachings of Jesus Christ,
who said:

". . . My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were
of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should
not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from
hence."
John 18:36b, KJV

For more of my views concerning the Branch Davidians, please
consider reading the article entitled "Heaven's Gate, Suicide
And Other Death Cults".

4. Children of God / Family of Love / The Family

Since their founding in 1968 by David Brandt Berg -- a.k.a.
Moses David and Father David -- during the course of their
maturation as a movement, this cult has embraced, practiced
and encouraged different forms of sexual perversion. This
sexual perversion has taken the form of both homosexuality
and lesbianism, prostitution and pedophilia. One of their
more recent sexual doctrines was referred to as the "Loving
Jesus Revolution". According to this teaching, members were
encouraged to make love to Jesus, and to use the "F" word
with Him. To help you to understand exactly how perverse the
group became in their beliefs, consider that the male members
of the organization were encouraged to imagine that they had
vaginas. You may wish to consider reading such articles as
"Women Shepherds: The Family Sex Cult Exposed Again!", and
"Elijah: Where Are The True Prophets Of God?".

5. Jehovah's Witnesses

A number of years ago, I spent a considerable amount of time
studying the doctrines of the Jehovah's Witnesses. I arrived
at the conclusion that they teach a wide range of false and
Scripturally unsound doctrines. One of such doctrines states
that Jesus Christ and the Archangel Michael are one and the
same person. The Jehovah's Witnesses also believe that no
one is truly saved unless they are a member of their group.
From questioning some of their members, I was given a clear
understanding that they also believe that the sealed 144,000
individuals who are mentioned in the seventh chapter of the
Book of Revelation, are comprised of only members of the
Jehovah's Witnesses.

6. Jesus Seminar

The name of this group is very deceptive. Among other things,
the Jesus Seminar does not believe that Jesus Christ is the
Messiah and the true Son of God. In fact, the members of this
group are so lifted up in their own pride and vanity, that at
another seminar, they were planning on putting God Himself on
trial. I don't recall if this mock trial ever occurred or not.

7. Mormons / Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

While I'm not particularly familiar with all of the doctrines
of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I do know
from my studies with them many years ago, that the Mormons do
not accept the Bible as the inspired Word of God; at least it
wasn't the case at that time. They in fact embrace the belief
that the writings of their false prophet -- Joseph Smith --
supersede the Bible and that the Bible is just a supplementary
work to such Mormon holy books as the Book of Mormon. For the
record, a number of years ago I took the time to read the Book
of Mormon, and I can tell you plainly that it's in no way even
remotely similar to the Holy Scriptures.

8. Roman Catholic Church

As I explain in a number of articles that are devoted to the
Roman Catholic Church, the RCC embraces quite a few doctrines
with which I disagree, and which cannot be substantiated from
the Scriptures. Among these are the following: Devout Roman
Catholics believe that the pope is the sole representative of
Jesus Christ on Earth. He is the so-called "Vicar of Christ".
Roman Catholics believe that the pope is infallible, and that
what he says is the direct word of God. The Roman Catholic
Church believes and teaches that it is the only vehicle that
leads to Salvation, and that other Christian faiths, churches
and denominations are "deficient" and are not really "proper
churches". Roman Catholics believe that their faith is "the
one true faith" which was founded by Christ and the Apostle
Peter. They believe that Mary was born without sin, and that
she ascended to Heaven without suffering bodily corruption.
They also view Mary as "co-redemptrix" and "co-mediatrix"
with Christ. Roman Catholics also believe that the eucharist
and the wine are transformed into the actual flesh and blood
of the Lord. They likewise believe that an individual must be
baptized sometime during their life, or even after death, in
order to truly be saved. For a more in-depth look at my views
concerning the Roman Catholic Church, please consider reading
such articles and series as "Cardinal Ratzinger's Rebellion",
"Mary Worship, Christianity And Roman Catholicism", "Have You
Read The New Scriptures Yet?", "Lies And Deceptions Of The
Roman Catholic Church", "Roman Catholicism, Water Baptism And
The Trinity", and "Gargoyles: Satan Loves Church Buildings!".

9. Unification Church / The Moonies

The founder of the Unification Church, Sun Myung Moon, and
his wife, refer to themselves as "True Parents". Similar to
a number of different modern false prophets, Moon believes
himself to be the current incarnation of Jesus Christ on
Earth. This one belief alone is sufficient to include this
wayward group on our list of wolves and deceivers of the
Endtime.

10. Urantians / Urantia Book

While the followers of the Urantia Book have many false
doctrines, their primary blasphemy, is that they do not
believe that the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ is necessary for
one's Salvation. In fact, they view it as a barbaric act,
and insist that Salvation comes only through forgiveness of
each other's sins. Similar to the Jehovah's Witnesses, they
also believe that Michael is the "celestial name" of Jesus
Christ. For more information concerning the Urantians, you
may wish to read such articles as "Urantia Book: Attack On
The Blood Atonement Of Christ", as well as "Urantia Book:
A Dangerous New Age Doctrine!".

Obviously, the previous list is by no means complete, and
there are many other individuals, groups and denominations
which embrace doctrines which are contrary to the sound
words of the Christian Bible. As the Apostle Paul wrote to
his beloved son in the faith, Timothy:

"Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of
me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus."
2 Timothy 1:13, KJV

I advise you to do likewise. Furthermore, as I point out in
my 1998 article called "Rightly Dividing The Word Of Truth",
I advise you to follow the wise advice of the Apostle Paul
when he wrote:

"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that
needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of
truth."
2 Timothy 2:15, KJV

With these verses, I will bring this short article to its
conclusion. I trust that it has been informative, as well as
a blessing in your life.
