Some have discussed with me the points of contrast between modern Christianity and Biblical Christianity. Because the points are so numerous, I have constructed this paper to list many of them and discuss their significances.
Modern Christianity is not merely a right faith with some erroneous theological points; it is a set of faiths that contrast with the Biblical faith, being a set of religions that are as pagan as sun-worship. Conservative Christianity is as included in this as its much more ‘liberal’ cousins. The so-called ‘orthodox’ forms of Christianity are no more Biblically accurate. Each of these starts with a premise that sounds good to many, and then leaves off what makes for Biblical faith.
1. A student interested in truth must view entire texts and not selected pieces. Refusing to consider this rule necessary will engender many errors. Devotionals teach devoted students to err in this way.
2. Texts often ‘presuppose’ other texts that pertain to the same topic. It is a great error to assume that a text stands alone and can be disconnected. (Many texts ‘assume’ that readers have already read and understood the basics found in the first books of the Bible.)
3. No matter what one may already doctrinally believe, the Scriptures are not intended to be a volume for proving one’s own point! (Rather, one’s doctrines must always be subject to the Scripture’s correction.)
“Yet I am certain that Yehovah designed the Bible so that folks who love error and will not believe the Truth can construct their error from the Bible”.

What is the greatest lack today – that goes for all churches and all denominations – in Christian life, work and experience? Rather than keep you guessing, let me just get to it – the fear of God.
