That does illustrate your understanding of Jesus and everything he demonstrated in His life. Mine begs to differ.

The word "anti" does not limit itself to the understanding of "against", but it also has the meaning of "instead".

When the truth claims absolutes like Ephesians 5:11, John 3:36,
John 3:20
... the anti-christ cult mesage offers an "instead" message

It totally denies sound doctrine for the "feel good only" misapplication of scripture when the truth is contrary to "God is love.. and nothing else matters"

What about you, Christy? Have you found it to be a "feel-good", easy kind of thing?
I'd actually like an answer to that myself...for putting to death the old man/egoic/carnal nature of self is pretty frackin painful and at times extremely frustrating and in no way, shape or form can be construed as "feel good".

I'd also like to know, Twin, how this qualifies as a cult message when this is EXACTLY what we are taught in the bible we are supposed to be doing...but very few do, I might add

Exactly "what lie" is it that you think we are believing Twin?????????? Is it that GOD IS LOVE....or that that you must crucify and put to death your carnal/egoic self???????

Considering these concepts are both found in scripture...I'm a might confused as to exactly what you believe in and how you can construe these as anti-christ cult messages.

Nope.

something that eludes most here...... learning from theologians who have had the correct theological training and understanding of the original languages therby use scripture correctly as taught by Jesus \ the Apostles \ and the OT writters.

My spirit agrees with both you and Christy. The "easy" way is to consider antichrist as "out there somewhere." But the flesh is more subtle than that. Christ within us bruises the Serpent within us, and Jesus showed us how to do it!

Blessings to you both,
Brian

Yes HE did!!! It's a shame the majority of Christianity missed it or perhaps they just choose to ignore it...it is definitely NOT the easy road to take. Just saying...

it's just strange to me that GOD sends, not only a delusion, but a strong delusion, and it is the recievers' fault..................

Yeah...God not only makes man deluded, he then punishes him for that delusion. This megalomaniacal god is not the God I know.

If a passage of scripture completely goes against the nature of GOD THAT IS PURE UNCONDITIONAL AGAPE LOVE...it surely can be deemed as a man made interpolation IMHO and is ignored accordingly.
