Thomas Paine (a so-called founding father) once stated in reference to theology that “The study of theology, as it stands in Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authorities; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and it admits of no conclusion. Not anything can be studied as a science, without our being in possession of the principles upon which it is founded; and as this is the case with Christian theology, it is therefore the study of nothing.” (The Age of Reason, from “The Life and Major Writings of Thomas Paine”, ed. Philip S. Foner, (New York, The Citadel Press, 1945) p601) Although we don’t agree with the philosophies and ideologies of the so-called founding fathers, we cannot ignore the truth found in this statement. Christian theology is not based on history, archaeology, and neither is it based on the scripture. What you will find at the root of Christian theology is Greek philosophy, paganism, racism, and the traditions of men. Doctrines such as the Trinity, Sunday Worship, Blacks suffering the curse of Ham,etc. are promoted and taught through theologian seminary colleges. In modern time, these particular institutions have become the authority of scriptural understanding. The question is did the Heavenly Father give them this authority?
Psa 50:16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth: Psa 50:17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee. Psa 50:18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers. Psa 50:19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit. Psa 50:20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother’s son.
But unto the wicked God saith,: Who are the wicked according to the Bible?
Job 9:24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he
In order to find out who the wicked are, you must first look at the people who are controlling the earth under the direction of Satan. Who are these people?
Rev 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Rev 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
The synagogue of Satan is referring to the Roman powers of the earth today that are claiming to be Jews and are not. These are the same people that control and benefit from the prison system and, these are the same wicked individuals that are mentioned in Psa. 50:16.
What hast thou to do to declare my statutes: The same people who are controlling the earth through the power of Satan are the same people that are over the theologian seminary colleges. The Most High is asking these people a genuine question. How can they being the wicked try to declare what the Most High’s statutes are? How can they be the authority of the Most High’s word when they are the synagogue of Satan? Or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth: How can these people give the understanding on what the Most High’s covenant is with His people?
Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee: These people hate the instructions of the Most High which are His laws and commandments. They reject the word of the Most High and instead deal with science and sorcery.
When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers: This is speaking about how the Jewish powers along with the Roman Catholic powers (who are of the same Roman bloodline) have made compacts with each other along with the other nations to continue to rob and spoil the same people they claim they are trying to enlighten. This adultery is referring to spiritual adultery. Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit: They bring forth lies and deceit with their mouths while at the same time claiming to be the people of God. Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother’s son: The brother of these Edomite/Roman powers is Jacob (Gen. 25:25-26, Mal. 1:2, Oba. 1:10). They use every chance they get to defame and criminalize their brother Jacob. One of the biggest tools they have used to do this is their religious doctrine. These people in no way can be the bearers of truth.
The Bible is Against Philosophy
Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
The Bible warns us of the use of philosophy. Theology is rooted in pure philosophy and vain deceit. The Most High’s word was not meant to be interpreted by man’s ideas.
2Pe 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
Our thoughts and ideas are lies if they are not rooted in the scriptures:
1Pe 4:11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Rom 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
The Bible instead, when read correctly, interprets itself:
Psa 119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
Isa 28:9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. Isa 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
Christ, the Disciples, the Prophets, were all men who had knowledge of how to interpret the word of the Most High. None of these men had degrees or were certified under any so-called theological establishment. Christ received his doctrine and certification from the Heavenly Father from on high:
Joh 7:15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned? Joh 7:16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. Joh 7:17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. Joh 7:18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
