I agree. Lift out the Word of God and let it expose heresy. Sometimes heresy does need to be exposed and called what it is but this can be done without personal attack.

Am I permitted to expose heretics in this forum?

If yes in which subforum?

@Moderating

Dear Member Alan,
First before you do so, you'd have to first define "Heretic" and what would be considered "Heretical Teaching". Also, seek to see if it's contrary to the Statement of Faith of Talk Jesus, Christianity as a whole, or just something specific to a denominational teaching.

Statement of Faith

With this being considered, then presenting your case to the Staff before putting it to open forum would be my suggestion. Maybe, via a PM, including Staff Members for review/discussion.

I state the method for this, because to Catholics who would consider Protestants' teaching Heretical, and Protestants' to Catholics. Yet, we have had both here on Talk Jesus exchanging thoughts, going over Scripture without the identifying mark of Heretic being tossed around.

Not that it hasn't happened here on some postings during the heat of battle. Yet, to do what you suggest as the primary focus of a thread is something else entirely and should be done in order and considered carefully before doing so.

I hope this helps some, in how to move forward on identifying/addressing "Heretics".

With the Love of Christ Jesus.

There is no place in the bible that allows us to name any false teacher. The Word says to rebuke those who follow this false teaching and to teach the truth. No more. It's not up to us to pass judgment on anyone.

Hi guys,

I received a notification from Christ4Ever that he mentioned me in a post. Though not mentioned openly here..... in the alert I was told I was. Now reading here, I can deduce 2+2=4. Kinda like the obvious outcome of scripture when put together.
This kinda seems familiar:skeptic:??? I have spoken in the light yet you conspire in the dark?

Please, if there is any issue with what I post, openly say so. And if you desire to ban me ,do not pick apart what I post and add to your own narrative because you could not, in wisdom come up with what you may like in it yourselves. This happens often. I know I am no different than Christ in that- because that is done with His Word.

Since the word "Heretic" is being thrown around, please feel free to point out what heresy I spoke. Don't worry, (not that you will be) I will not be hurt by what you say.

HERETIC? Hmm, I guess that does depend on who you ask? The only thing I can deduce here , is that I mentioned Mother Miryam (Mary) . Seeing that this is a Protestant forum , that would be the only name that would throw people into convulsions. Certainly not because I said she was with sin before Christ saved her, that throws Catholics into convulsions. So what I can deduce....., Sola Scriptura is not really accepted, though touted by Protestants?

If that is the case then you would agree that this could apply:
Tradition and Worship Mathew 15:7-9
…7You hypocrites! Isaiah prophesied correctly about you: 8‘These people honor Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me. 9They worship Me in vain; they teach as doctrine the precepts of men.’”…

So, since Heretic is being proposed, what heretical statements have I made? Did I not support with scripture any thing I said? Also, is it not a false assumption to say "Catholic", when they reject the truth that Mother Miryam was born with sin?

So how could I be put on trial , in essence as a Catholic? And to be considered a heretic from heavens point of view , I would have to deny the written Word which scripture is, I have not. The mention and discussion of a matriarch of scripture does not qualify for that label .

Now, if it is because I spoke about scripture in other discussions concerning prophecy, is that not what all do here, speak about scripture and their understanding of it? Not everyone holds to the same interpretation, right? There would be no need for discussion and debate then.

What I gather is Christianity here has become like political lines drawn in the sand. Any dissent from what (men declare ) as acceptable is frowned upon even if it is TRUTH. Freedom of speech is rejected, even when there is no abuse of it. The only offense seems to be discussion about the Lord's Mother, she is His mother right?:
Mary Visits Elizabeth Luke 1:42-44
…42In a loud voice she exclaimed, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43And why am I so honored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44For as soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.…

If it is for some other reason Christ4Ever notified me , concerning some heresy, please tell me what perceived heresy? If it is because I said in my Canon I have 81 books, I have not used anything outside of what you may accept . As for extra biblical text , I only used Enoch which from reading here, discussion about his writings is present.

And again the Catholic thing, their Canon is 73 and so is MOST ORTHODOX. Not me though. So please, is there anything you would like to share with the class? Peace in Christ .

(2 Thess. 3:14) "And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed."

If you rebuke those who follow false teaching, how is that not naming false teachers?

Wow. Really? Why not read that verse in context? Its not talking about false teachers or heretics....It's talking about people who won't work to contribute to the community. Your answer is totally out of context of the conversation.

If you rebuke people for following a false teaching you are talking about the teaching, not the teacher...I would have thought you would see that.

First point out the false teaching, and with Sola Scriptura (scripture alone) prove it wrong.

All Scripture is God-Breathed 2Timothy 3:15-17
…15From infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16All Scripture is God-breathed and is profitable for doctrine, for conviction, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17so that the man of God may be complete, fully equipped for every good work.…

Scripture is PROFITABLE for doctrine, meaning MAKING. If what one teaches can be supported by scripture, then they have made profitable doctrine. It is kinda like when the doctrine of the Holy Trinity was made. Though the words (Holy Trinity) are not WORDED as such in scripture, it is present in eqaution and the sum therefore equals 3 as one. Now are there some WORDS, TITLES that I spoke of that one could not possibly deduce from the equation of the scriptures to equal?

How is conduct not related to false teaching? If you are teaching a false conduct, then you are a false teacher. Correct?

The issue is not with anyone other than me. So please, feel free to question. Anyone can throw out the Word Heretic or FALSE TEACHER, proof of argument must be presented. We are all before heaven. Does that really matter if one, in their heart is not really for heaven? Probably not, but it matters to me , I can only speak for myself in that, it matters. I will rely on peoples good and hope that outweighs the bad. ISRAEL!(May God Prevail !)

I have no support in here, for me it will be like being in a Muslim Country as a polar opposite, will I receive fair treatment? Only God knows? Will I have to accept whatever accusations are flung, no I will move on. But I am not the type to just sit back and let people state things without support for their claims.

Isaiah 50:8
The One who vindicates Me is near. Who will dare to contend with Me? Let us confront each other! Who has a case against Me? Let him approach Me!
Romans 8:32-34
God Works In All Things
…32He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, freely give us all things? 33Who will bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34Who is there to condemn us? For Christ Jesus, who died, and more than that was raised to life, is at the right hand of God—and He is interceding for us.…

I go through this everywhere I go, it is the Lamb I follow.

Luke 18:7
Will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry out to Him day and night? Will He continue to defer their help?
Romans 8:1
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Really? Are you a muslim? You haven't been honest concerning the 15 extra books I asked you about which make up your canon. What else do you hide?

You ask for support of others for their claims yet you don't reveal the 15 extra books you said make up your canon.

Yes, you keep talking about the lamb you follow yet you don't reveal the bible you believe.

satan could quote Scripture. Is that a surprise to you?

Do you live in a box? all you have to do is google Canon and it reveals all the different Canons held by Christian denominations. You are so angry . For me to post my canon would be fruitless. You are who you are and what you hold to is what you hold to. As I said, I have not gone beyond the little Canon you adhere to. So, your point? Oh and clearly not a Muslim I profess Christ (God) has come in the flesh. And that flesh was Incarnated through Mother Miryam. I do not deny the Incarnation do you?
1 John 4

4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.


2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:


3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.


4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Hmm....really? Well, then from your lips to God's ears. As for Romanists are they the same Romans Paul address or am I to look for a different group in Rome?

My point is, name the 15 extra books. It is not hard. If you believe they are part of Scripture and the Word of God, why not list them?

I agree that the word heretic too broad and eclectic. The person in question is a huge liar, and has the right to lie, but not lie to gullible people and lead them astray and make a huge amount of money in the process.

? denotes mysterious liar


Christian Churches all over the USA and now also overseas such as South Korea and Brazil are inviting ? to come and teach and preach behind their church pulpits?

? regularly visits heaven and sit on Gods huge throne gazing into his pretty blue eyes, even commented just how neat Almighty God the Fathers moustache is!

Apparently, Almighty God has a sweet tooth and just loves to eat jello or jelly where I come from?

Jesus has brand new Harley Davidson motorbike in heaven has tattoos and really likes a game of golf on the heavenly golf courses!

There are many restaurants up there in heaven but God the Father only eats out in the Mexican one!

This is not even the tiny tip of this colossal iceberg of lies, so I will leave it to you to ponder about it

? preaches another God another Jesus and another Gospel!!

However, if you do not want me to name this person I refrain and abide by the forum rules!

LOL No. I was raised a Roman Catholic...Over the years since I left it. It's become the Romanist religion...No derogatory but more descriptive, in my ears. of the religion itself. No slam on you or your beliefs.
But as I said...Our mods are god folk. They will not burn you at the stake or stone you. IF you did something wrong, let them tell you about it. And ignore the nasty people who harass instead of teaching properly. Love is a thing that is reflected...Some people, though, have a finish that is too dull to reflect the light. If I'm right in my understanding, I know what the 'extra' books are and I'm confident that God can use it to your benefit.
