False Christian Doctrines
The error of calling Jesus God (YHWH) - The New Testament teaches that Jesus was a prophet25 with the Hebrew name Yahshua.26 Yahshua in Hebrew means Yahweh-saves, or Yahweh is Savior. According to the synoptic gospels27 Yahshua was sent to the Lost Tribes of the house of Israel.28 Yahshua was called “the son of Yahweh” by some followers, but he called himself, the son of man.29 Yahshua was a natural born Israelite man; a prophet sent to Israel30 to preach repentance and to announce that the Kingdom of Yahweh/of heaven was at hand.31 Yahshua’s mission was to teach32 First Century Israel, and to save them from the oral traditions and man-made laws that had enslaved them.33 His mission included a prophecy of judgment that was coming in their generation 34 through Rome. This judgment would destroy the corrupt Temple worship system and Jerusalem. Because Yahshua was faithful to his mission it resulted in his execution.35
The error of the Trinity - The trinity concept is pagan, and it is foreign to the teachings of both the Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament. The English word “spirit” in the Hebrew Bible and in the NT means wind, or air.37 Air is not a person, but motivation. Yahweh is incorporeal (not physical), but Yahshua was physical (a human man).38 Yahshua (Jesus) of the Constantine Roman Catholic NT was developed into “the second person” of their Trinity God in 325 AD, at the first ecumenical council at Nicea, that declared the Christ to be of one essence with the Father. Presto, here is your new Trinity! For the previous 300 years of Christianity (i.e. the Church) there was no belief in a Trinity God. Yahshua was a created entity, a prophet, but Yahweh (God) has always existed.
The error of Human Sacrifice – Human or animal sacrifices to receive forgiveness for sin or to acquire favors from one’s deity is pagan. Yahweh does not need a human or animal to die as payment to Him in order for Him to forgive sin. He receives no benefit from such pagan activity. Human sacrifice is forbidden by Him and is condemned. Yahweh tells Israel that Human sacrifice is such a horrible concept to Him, that it did not even come into “His mind” or to demand it from His people.39 This means that Yahweh would never accept the death of an appointed and anointed prophet like Yahshua on a pagan stake as a sacrifice (blood payment) for the forgiveness of another person’s sin.40 The very idea that Yahweh requires human or animal sacrifice to forgive sins is not found in the Hebrew Bible.41 In the Hebrew Bible, slaughtered animals and other food items were “lost” to the owner as a substitute “for value” (like money is today) to pay for fines or offenses committed against the State, for atonement religious or civil. The majority of the lost items for payment, helped support the office of the priesthood, and paid for their services which were more than religious. The loss of valuable items also served as punishment to encourage righteous living.
The error of a Satan, devils and demons - The Hebrew Bible does not teach the concept of free roaming “spirit beings” with powers to compete with their own Creator. The word “satan” as used in the Hebrew Bible means an “adversary or opponent.” The word satan42 is not a “name” but refers to a position someone has taken by becoming an adversary or opponent to someone else. Even Yahweh can at times become an adversary, or an opponent. Prior to Moses many Israelites had become influenced by the pagan nations around them and were worshiping false god(s) and devils; all were idols or objects made or carved of stone or wood. Polytheism and idol (or devil) worship is of a pure pagan origin. Furthermore, it would be an oxymoron and an absurd idea to believe that Yahweh, who is the Almighty Sovereign Eternal Creator Power of all things, could be remotely challenged by one of His own created celestial (angels) beings.
The error of a physical Hell – a place of endless torment for the wicked. The belief of a hell as promoted by Roman Catholic paintings and drawings such as a purgatory44 is false theology. The Hebrew Bible does not teach the concept of a Christian hell. The Hebrew word “Sheol” 43 is the word that is sometimes translated as Hell in English translations, but the word by Hebrew definition means the “grave” or place of the dead. It is the place where the body goes after someone dies. It is the same place for the bodies of both the good and bad people. The plain fact is everyone’s body goes to the grave after death. If there was a place of “eternal torture,” a hell, even the wicked would have eternal life. The fact is the body of the wicked returns dust, the soul dies, but we believe the Bible teaches that the soul of the righteous continues on to be with their Almighty Creator.
Note: We believe that all true doctrines of belief must come from the Almighty Himself as He has revealed them through His anointed appointed Prophets of the Hebrew Bible. Therefore all subsequent doctrines that have their origin in a source other then the Hebrew Bible must be man’s attempt to develop the “thoughts” of God. Such doctrines have been developed for control, manipulation, advantage or for power to capture wealth for religious institutions. Such power is also used to capture the human mind through 30,000 +45 (last count) of competing Christian denominations. Since this is a dependable fact, it is likely developed from the obvious confusion and tangled thought and opinions expressed in the uninspired NT Bible. We believe all the following Christian doctrinal schemes are false and far outside of Yahweh’s inspired instructions through His anointed Prophets and His precepts found in the Hebrew Bible.46
The error of “Baptismal regeneration” – Baptism (adults) is simply an external public act for expressing internal repentance, i.e. the repentance for a life of wickedness and the intent toward a new life of righteousness. Baptism as an act is not a requirement for salvation or for obtaining eternal life.
The error of “Justification” by faith”- In the Biblical, justification is never by “faith.” It is through ones faithfulness.47 The word “faith” in English translations of the NT Bible comes from the Greek word “Pistis” and has the correct Greek meaning of a “firm-persuasion.” The English word “faith” has the meaning of “trust or confidence” in the statement or action of another, which without any evidence can be true or false, good or bad. That is why Biblical justification is only achieved through “faithfulness” (the expressed deliberate verifiable action by the individual).
The error of “original sin”– Calling everyone a sinner at birth because of the sin of Adam and Eve’s disobedience, is false. Biblically, sin occurs by individual choice. Sins or offenses coming from one sinner are not passed on to another. Each person is responsible for his own actions, whether they are good, or bad.48
The error of “Holy Communion”– The sacrament of the “lord’s supper” developed by Romanism has become analogous to pagan cannibalism. Such act even if imaginary is repulsive and not found in the Hebrew Bible.
The error of a “Second Coming” - A cover-up belief that comes from the misinterpretation of events in the NT Bible due to the fact that the expected rule of Jesus did not come to pass during the First Century. However, it did come to pass according to the NT Bible. Judgment was to come and did come upon Israel in 70 CE by way of Rome, Matt. 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 when the Temple was destroyed. Because this prophesy was not understood, the doctrine of a future coming was developed, to correct the earlier belief of an earthly kingdom. The Second Coming doctrine is false, but it is still being promoted to the ignorant.
The error of “a Future Earthly Kingdom” – Both Christianity and Judaism believe in a coming Messiah that will correct all the problems they see happening in the world. Christians believe this has to be by the second coming of Jesus. Jews do not believe that Jesus met their qualifications for their Messiah, so they are waiting for their own coming Messiah to correct the world problems (and put Jews in control). Christians have waited 2000 years and Jews about 2600 years. Well, if both are wrong, what happened to Yahweh’s control over His Creation? The answer is – The Kingdom of Yahweh/ of heaven49 is within you! All will remain in complete control by Yahweh since He is the Original–originator of all that exists, of all that is, and of all that will ever be.
25 Matthew 13:57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honor, save in his own country, and in his own house.
26 Yahshua is the proper Hebrew name of the “Greek NT Jesus,” and has the meaning of “Yahweh-Saves.”
27 Synoptic Gospels - are those gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke that tell the story of Yahshua’s life and mission from a similar point of view and are similar in structure, likely because all three built their gospel using a common source. Matthew and Luke however, may have had material not available to early Mark.
28 Matthew 10:5 Jesus sent these twelve out, and commanded them, saying, “Don’t go among the Gentiles, and don’t enter into any city of the Samaritans. Mat 10:6 rather, go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
29 Matthew 8:20 Jesus said to him, “The foxes have holes, and the birds of the sky have nests, but the son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.”
30 Matthew 15:24 But he answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
31 Kingdom of YHWH (or of heaven) is used interchangeably, Mat 4:17 from that time, Jesus began to preach, and to say, “Repent! For the Kingdom of YHWH/of Heaven is at hand.”
33 Mark 7:9 He said to them, “Full well do you reject the commandment of Mighty One that you may keep
your traditions. “
34 Matthew 24:34 Most certainly I tell you, this generation will not pass away, until all these things are
35 Mark 3:6 The Pharisees went out, and immediately conspired with the Herodians against him, how they
might destroy him.

39 Jeremiah 19:5 . . . and have built the high places of Baal, to burn their sons in the fire for burnt offerings to Baal; which I didn’t command, nor speak, which didn’t even enter into my mind: Jeremiah 19:6 therefore, behold, the days come,” says Yahweh, “that this place will no more be called ‘Topheth’, nor ‘The Valley of the son of Hinnom’, but ‘The valley of Slaughter’.
