When Doing Many Wonderful Works In A Church Becomes Iniquity
By David J. Stewart | March 2015
Matthew 7:22-23, “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
One of the most fascinating Scriptures in the Holy Bible to me is Matthew 7:22-23. These people were evidently in a religious group. They had preached in Jesus' name. They had done many wonderful works to help others in Jesus' name. They had even cast out demons in Jesus' name. Yet, shockingly, in eternity when they stood before God the Lord called them “WORKERS OF INIQUITY.” Jesus said He never knew them as His own.
I was horrified to learn over the years that our very own beloved Baptist churches in America are turning apostate, inviting the Devil into their congregations without even realizing it. If you are using any Bible version other than the King James Bible, the Devil is residing in your church. You've been deceived by Satan. Corruption has crept into your congregation!!! If your pastor(s) promote Dr. John MacArthur, the Devil is effectively destroying your church. If your church supports false prophets like Paul Washer, Billy Graham and Ray Comfort, you're in big trouble. And God forbid, if your pastor teaches the heresy of Lordship Salvation, your so-called “church” is actually a bunch of “WORKERS OF INIQUITY.” The Lord Jesus Christ does not know you!
Are you merely a part of a satanic religious group doing many wonderful works and preaching in Jesus' name, but you have never believed the Gospel? Our world is filled with these type of “WORKERS OF INIQUITY.” Yes, even professed Independent Baptist churches today in many cases have become “WORKERS OF INIQUITY,” because they teach the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation.
Lordship Salvation is the false teaching that it is not enough to admit you're a sinner and believe on Christ to be saved; but also, they say that you MUST receive Jesus as your Lord, surrendering your will completely to Him, forsaking sinful behavior and committing your life to live for God. Adding these extra requirements to God's simple plan of salvation corrupts the Gospel. The Word of God plainly teaches that eternal life is a free gift (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9). It cannot be merited, deserved or earned. The entire notion of Lordship Salvation is of the Devil. Those religious people who teach and preach Lordship Salvation are “WORKERS OF INIQUITY,” regardless of how sincere they may be. God's Words cannot be altered, added to or changed without consequences.
According to the satanic religion of Seventh Day Adventism (SDA), adherents of their religion must make themselves “worthy” of eternal life before they can truly be saved. SDA's deceitfully teach that a person is saved by faith alone in the Gospel of Christ, but then they add water baptism, tithing, Sabbath keeping, holy living and a bunch of other junk. That's not the Gospel! That's not God's simple plan of salvation! That's not the simplicity that is in Jesus Christ! Therefore, Seventh Day Adventists are “WORKERS OF INIQUITY!”
I say this kindly, Independent Baptists who teach Lordship Salvation are in the same sinking boat as Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses and Christian Science. And by the way, they all use modern corrupt Bible versions written by occultists Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort. Mark Twain was so right when he said, “It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” Many Baptists have fallen hook, line and sinker for the Devil's Bible versions, and have bitten into the forbidden fruit of Lordship Salvation, damning themselves to Hell.
There are many pastors across America, always criticizing the King James Bible and the modern ones alike. In essence what they are saying is that we don't have a perfect Bible today in the most popular and fastest growing international language in history, which is English. For the record, I find no fault with the King James Bible. It is the Bible, not a version.
In his very early ministry, even Dr. Jack Hyles corrected the King James Bible. But then he wisely became King James Bible only, and stopped correcting the Bible. There's nothing wrong with the King James Bible. Could some things have been translated better? That subject is open to much debate. But I know assuredly that God promised to preserve His Words, and He has. Call me what you will, disagree with me if you'd like, but I am on the Lord's side, defending His promise in Psalms 12:6-7 to preserve His very pure Words unto every generation. I ask you, if the King James Bible is not up to par, then which Bible version is? Don't tell me what's wrong with the King James Bible unless you can tell me which Bible we can trust! If not, please shut up!
love God who doesn't love sinners!”
