Every time you read a verse you re seeing it through the lens of someone who explained what they believe to be true about Bible doctrines. the internet is no different that growing up in one church or another with one pastor or another. That is the truth. If you believe in hell, here are certain verses in the Bible that will seem to support hell, yet if you believe a different viewpoint they in no way seem to support that doctrine. Once I discovered how we are mislead by certain translations of certain words, I realized that many try to convince us of what THEY believe. I thank the opportunity to get online and study different viewpoints without having to visit many Sundays at a different church. I'm sorry but just reading the Bible with no other input will confuse you. It's just so big that you can't read it at one sitting and by the time you get to a place that might seem to contradict another place if you could remember way back there, you WOULD be confused and be forced to ask someone about it and depending on who you asked you would get different explanations. No different than the internet!!! Hmmm, you WERE able to ferret out the 'hoax' as you call it. If someon had merely told you about this information how long might it have taken to uncover the 'hoax?"

Cosmic doctrine refers to the lies by which Satan deceives the nations. Satan is the present ruler of this world and attempts to blind man to the truth of God's revealed word with his own concepts.

What lies comprise those doctrines?

What are Satan's concepts?

How is one to recognize them?

I find it amazing the pride and foolishness of people who will claim they know the truth from the Holy Spirit or God within, etc, and write it out expecting you to believe them and they claim that the Apostles of Jesus Christ were not capable of doing the same thing and you should not trust there writings.

One very big example is all of the false religions of the world which are Satanic attempts to counterfeit the truth as revealed in God's Word.

An example is internationalism which opposes God's institution of nationalism. Internationalism makes it easier for Satan to gain control over this world. God's plan in human history includes the concept of nationalism for the protection and perpetuation of the human race. After the flood when the population began to increase, the people were reluctant to spread out and instead congregated in the plains of the Tigris- Euphrates Valley (Gen. 11:2). It was there that the Satanically inspired rebellion against God occurred with the towel of Babel. God's response was to confuse the languages and scatter the people. Nationalism has been the order of the day ever since.

By being well grounded in the doctrines and principles of the Word of God.

Thanks for taking the time to try to explain but I think your rationale is absurd.
