Their revelation is a lie, or fake.
Just because it goes against your interpretation of the Bible doesn't mean it goes against their interpretation.

Oh, and when I write something like "Nothing you will ever learn..."
I dont mean "you" personally.

I mean "you" as in "You and I and everyone else too"

I could have said "Nothing we will learn..." and my idea would be still the same.

Im not really sure what this sentence means?

But what i know is this:
Jesus said nothing in secret.
There are no hidden teachings that some Christians have and others dont.
The Good News is once for all given to the saints.
There is nothing else coming down the pipe from above.

Therefore if some teacher stands up and tells you that there has just been learned a secret?...or if there is some type of church out there that claims to have secrets?...it's a lie.

Jesus is not found in the "secret rooms"

There is much evidence that God does not give to all equally - there are riches in hidden places. Jesus passed by multitudes of people without healing them, though He could have, etc.

yes, and thank God for that too.

For to the person that much is given, much is expected.

We who have the bible sitting on the desk beside us are lucky....we are blessed.
The ability to just reach over and find the simple answer in black and white is a gift we have been given.

But with this type of great gift comes the duty to use this gift in the best ways.

We are the light of the world.

What a shame if our light grows dim, or is covered over with traditions and anger.

Amen, but I believe God is above all things faithful to bring about the peaceable fruits of righteousness.
