One association - the order of the Freemasons has time and again proven itself to be a leader in the destruction of the Christian doctrine, particularly that of the Holy Roman Catholic Church. To destroy Christian beliefs in all nations is their ultimate aim. Church leaders at all levels must warn their followers of the hidden dangers of joining groups or sects who promote moral corruptness and lawlessness. Salvation, too, must be diligently preached if the Church is to experience growth. Church predecessors gave detailed written accounts of thee Freemasons and their actions and constitutions have confirmed their being a dangerous sect.

Enns, Peter. Inspiration and Incarnation: Evangelicals and the Problem of the Old Testament. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Academic, 2005. Kindle Electronic Edition. Frymer-Kensky, Tikva S. "The Atrahasis Epic and Its Significance for Our Understanding of Genesis 1-9."
The book is mean-spirited and vicious in its attacks upon the godly evangelical scholars who labored so hard to produce the modern versions, not to undermine the Word, but to make it more understandable to the average reader. Unfortunately the book has spawned an army of Riplinger disciples who feel it is their god-ordained duty to go forth and purify the Church by demanding the exclusive use of the King James Version. Picking up on their mentor's divisive spirit, they are labeling as heretics all fellow Christians and Christian leaders who prefer to use some version other than the King James. To illustrate how insane this silliness has become, consider a recent article that appeared in the newsletter of one of Riplinger's most enthusiastic supporters, a prophecy teacher by the name of Texe Marrs. Calling the new conservative translations "unholy" and "grotesque," he proceeded to condemn four leading prophecy teachers because they refused to endorse Riplinger's book and join with him in certifying the King James Version as the only reliable translation.
Martin Luther and the Break With Rome Martin Luther began as a simple Augustinian Friar in the Roman Catholic Church, the reigning power of Western Europe for hundreds of years, and he soon became the leader of the most important stand against the Catholic Church. I call Luther’s actions a stand rather than a revolt because he did not willingly mean to disrespect the entire church or even start a new denomination of Christianity, he was only trying to bring truth to it. Luther published writings such as The Ninety-five Theses, Address to the Christian Nobility of the German Nation and A Treatise on Christian Liberty, all which produced outrage in the Church for the fact that it blatantly accused the clerics, and especially the pope, of many wrong doings in their practice. Luther belonged to a church in Wittenburg, Germany and here he was a scholar as well as a priest. He, like many others, came to notice the corruption in the Church.
Why not? Because we know that is not God’s heart! Our problem is that the enemy has been able to influence and affect our filters of interpretation. Ever since the fall, satan has been twisting our thinking. Tragically, the enemy has sold us a pack of lies, and because we believe these lies are the truth, we read a verse like “women are to keep silent in the church,” and we actually entertain it as if that ... ... middle of paper ... ...t teach them and be true to the full context of the discussion in 1 Corinthians.
