Objecting to The False Doctrine of Only One Truth.

Updated on June 16, 2014

Beauty like this can only be given in love, not in accident.

Let us not be lead to believe that one man's knowledge and belief must be ours.

You are special and God loves you.

Now you can say these are taken out of context and that is fine by me, for you. But I believe them to stand by themselves:

1 John 4:8 New King James Version (NKJV) 8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love

1 John 4:18 - There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Hebrews 12:6 - For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

Galatians 5:22 - But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Romans 8:39 - Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

1 John 4:7 - Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

Colossians 3:14 - And above all these things [put on] charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

Ephesians 1:4 - According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

Romans 5:5 - And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

John 16:27 - For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

John 15:13 - Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

John 14:15 - If ye love me, keep my commandments.

John 13:34-35 - A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

Perhaps it is foolish to gather these together and conclude that to love is to know God. Perhaps it is foolish to insist that knowing God allows you a proper interpretation of the Bible. Perhaps it is foolish to insist that if you truly love you need not a preacher man for your understand comes direct from love which is God.

So that brothers and sisters if we both live in love but see a meaning different than our brother we are to celebrate that difference.

Truly a remarkable land. I did some growing up right where that northern "N" is and the views are from there.

Some are unhappy with a Gospel of love and look for rules and Hell

Authors and commentators often get beat up and that is par for the course and actually a great honor and privilege. Recently some folks to offense to the Gospel that we try to reveal for other's to understand better. Not our way but a fresh way. We do not much know about hell here except that found on earth. But some condemn us and say this is false doctrine, this doctrine of love. Okay we can live with that.

But who can do that under a false name, avatar type moniker? That is beyond comprehension. We cannot preach gospel anonymously. That is the epitome of falsity. Lie or disguise who you are and then claim to speak truth? What? The very core of what they speak is false as they speak with a false name.

Here is an exchange between two such anonymous people. Is anonymous speech to epitome of bad gossip?

planks-- Yes I am well aware of his false beliefs etc. I dont waste my time with him unless he comments on my articles and then I try to reach him. Probably a waste of time but I am concerned for the young folks he works with.

he was a lawyer and is a philosopher so it all makes sense.

Thanks brother

Celafoe,

Here is a quote from Eric,

"Being a preacher man and practicing yoga and meditation has been a trip. So I knew I had to get a mantra that resonated for me."

source: http://ericdierker.hubpages.com/hub/Yoga-and-Chris...

It is clear that he preaches and teaches a counterfeit "gospel." His image of "God" is embracing a universal "love."

At least they are correct, we do preach Universal Love and tolerance and faith. The author here is named Eric Dierker and I live at 908 Parkbrook ST., Spring Valley California, 91977 and you can call me at 858-736-4432 24/7 if you think I can help you with anything at all. That is how we rock n roll in my Gospel Hood.

Perhaps if you read this you would not have to be anonymous.

Now some want to worry over scripture, others look for love within it. We invite you to be the latter. If you read the Bible and come out with an interpretation

Let me tell you a story of two preachers.

The first was originally a Catholic Priest. Where he came from Priests could be married. He fled prosecution and landed in America where priests could not be married. He became an Episcopal priest. But then the Episcopals took an inclusive approach to openly gay folk. He could not abide and left. He applied to the Holy See (Vatican) to become a priest in the Ordinariate. The Vatican wrote letters accepting his plea. But the local group rejected him because they could not abide by a married priest. He is now not a priest. Arguably not ordained at all.

There was another preacher/teacher and he was not ever ordained. And one time the children came running to him. His handlers rebuked the children as the "priest" was too important. The teacher man rebuked his handlers. And spoke that the children were the best of the best and whoever treats them well treats him well. And he spoke of love and not of rules and condemnation. And His name was Jesus.

Take what you will from true life.

Can you just love?

Do you need someone to tell you who you should love?

See results

We must embrace the rule makers. We must love them also.

It is hard for some folk to let go and let love. They need the structure and the consequences of not following that structure. The problem for them is that the Bible is not designed that way. In fact the New Testament is designed exactly opposed to such ways and those that insist on certain rules and ways of doing things are exactly like the Pharisees and sophists and Sadducees.

Peter denied knowing Christ 3 times. And was against Gentiles who were not circumcised. And he wrote only a smidgen yet we must revere him, why?

Boring but at least you know who I am.

      At the least we know, no matter where or how you begin, you'll have "love" in the mix. Anonymity should not be a serious distraction.
