8 DOCTRINAL ERRORS IN THE BIBLE
The Bible- though is scripture, yet has been infiltrated and corrupted
Casual observation and study of the Bible seem to reveal doctrinal errors but careful observation and study of it further classifies these observed doctrinal errors into 2 categories:
- Doctrinal errors arising from a desperate infiltration and corruption of the Bible text.
- Doctrinal errors arising from a mere misinterpretation and misunderstanding of the Bible.
We aim to look at true doctrinal errors that arise from the actual corruption of the Bible text and are therefore supposed to omit the second category of doctrinal errors from our discussion, but it would very much be helpful to use this opportunity to discuss them so as to clarify them.
8 major cases which are either actual doctrinal errors or which only appear to be doctrinal errors will be discussed here and briefly studied to determine if they are errors by text corruption or errors by text misinterpretation. The number of doctrinal errors in the Bible is not limited to just 8 actually but these 8 have been picked out because they are the ones that can rid or almost rid one of his or her salvation if they’re strongly believed and not denounced. They include:
- The Gospel
- The Calendars
- Tongue Speaking
- The Nature of God And of Man
Rapture is a church term for referring to the taking of believers by God to be with him in heaven so as to escape the tribulation brought to earth by the Anti-christ. Nevertheless, we need to understand that though the scripture teaches a rapture, the word rapture however is nowhere found in scripture, what the church calls rapture, the Bible calls redeeming [Rev 5:9; 14:3-4].
Not many Bible readers notice that there are actually 2 types of rapture/redeeming preached in the Bible.
- One where a selected number of believers are redeemed and
- Another where the entire church is redeemed.
Yahushua/Jesus in [Mt 24:40-42] described how the rapture/redeeming would take place, but in the book of revelation, he makes it known by 3 obvious proofs that not the entire body of believers would be raptured/redeemed:
- Yahushua/Jesus in [Rev 1:20] divided the general and universal body of Christ into 7 churches. Though the names of these 7 churches were made to reflect the names of the 7 churches that had been established in John’s time in Asia, Yahushua/Jesus however used these 7 churches symbolically to represent the general and universal church at every given time. He further made it known that not all of these churches would be redeemed/raptured. The only church that he promises to hide (by redeeming) from seeing the tribulation which he called the hour (time) of temptation is the church of Philadelphia [Rev 3:10] and this promise is exclusive only to this church (or better yet people who display similar qualities as this church).
- The Lord promises to raise in the last days and at the time of the Anti-christ two prophets to preach his word [Rev 11:3]. Note that the tribulation at the time of the Anti-christ only lasts for three and a half years [Rev 11:2; 13:5], meaning that these prophet who would at least be of average ages (at the time of the Anti-christ) wouldn’t have been born in the reign of the Anti-christ but will actually live to see the Anti-christ come. What we are saying is that these 2 men being though believers will yet not be redeemed/raptured but live to see the tribulation. They will die in the tribulation by being killed but they’ll be given life again after three and half days and then be redeemed/raptured into heaven [Rev 11:7-13]. So though they are saints, yet, their own rapture comes after the tribulation itself and after their death.
- Lastly, the book of revelation reveals that a group of 144,000 men (12,000 each) from the 12 tribes of Israel (excluding the tribe of Dan) will be sealed on their heads [Rev 7:3-4], not really so they can be redeemed/raptured but so as to be made to come out of the tribulation as saints martyred for their witnessing of Yahushua/Jesus (by beheading most probably) [Rev 20:4]. They are the ones that will not worship the beast or his image nor receive his mark but will stand boldly for the truth in the last days [Rev 20:4]. The Bible sometimes refers to them as the remnant [Rev 12:17] (maybe because 144,000 is such a small number compared to the world population of Christians today). The few ones remaining and not yet martyred were the ones who gave glory to God after the 2 witnesses were raptured [Rev 11:3]. As you can see, they entered the tribulation time as saints, saw the tribulation and were not redeemed/raptured to escape it. So the redeeming/rapture according to Yahushua/Jesus does not describe the taking away of the entire church but only a selected few of the believers and the word "rapture/redeem" does not apply only to the living but also to the dead like the church teaches.
Paul is the endorser of the type of rapture where the entire church is redeemed.
But there is yet another type of rapture preached in the Bible, this time by Paul. One which describes the taking of the entire church at one single time and moment so as to escape the tribulation. Paul reveals that we (the believers) shall not all sleep (die) but shall all (both dead and alive) be changed in the twinkle of an eye [1 Co 15:51-52].
Well the redeeming/rapture cannot all at the same time entail both the following: that a selected few from the church will be raptured at successive times and also that the entire church will be redeemed/raptured at the same one time. It can only be one or the other. This is the doctrinal error of the rapture.
Wisdom reveals that this doctrinal error is not one arising from the misinterpretation of the Bible text but is one deliberately and intelligently introduced into the Bible to corrupt it. By whom in particular you may ask? The answer to that will be revealed as you stay with The Academy.
Simple question for the church
- If the rapture really refers to the taking of the entire church into heaven so they do not see the great tribulation,
and the scripture refers to those who will be keeping the commandment of God even as they reverence Christ as
Messiah (after the man child had been caught up to heaven [Rev 12:5] as the remnant [Rev 12:17].
Who then is this man child caught up to heaven?
- And who are the remnants who gave glory to the Father after the great earthquake hit the land in the great tribulation [Rev 11:13]?

The man called Paul
If you are a good observer, you’d have noticed that TheTrueacademy seems to have a bias towards the man Paul. Well it’s not a bias, it’s we observing and studying the words of the alive Bible (BBPPO) with wisdom. And here is not the place to discuss Paul for there is more about this man than the church knows or is willing to talk about, for now, we’ll just listen to some few words from the mouth of the alive Bible about this matter until time is created later on to conclusively discuss the subject.
- Yahushua/Jesus said even as it is written that man must live by every word that comes out from the mouth of the Lord [Mt 4:4].
- Yahushua/Jesus is the Lord-though in flesh [Joh 1:14], so the phrase: "every word" in Point 1 is invariably referring to all the words Yahushua/Jesus himself speaks.
- Yahushua/Jesus made it known that only the Apostles among every other men could and can rightly bear him witness, that he is true, specifically because they have been with him from the beginning [Joh 15:27]. (Notice that this statement justifies Peter’s action to lay down a qualification for Apostleship- to be one who has walked with Yahushua/Jesus from his baptism- the beginning of his ministry, to his ascension). This point means that in order of reverence, the words of the 12 Apostles who walked with the Messiah come next to those of the Messiah. If one at any time finds the words of Yahushua/Jesus confusing, that person is scripturally admonished to look first to the 12 Apostles before any other fellow.
- Yahushua/Jesus the Lord said if you love me, keep my commandments [Joh 14:15; 15:10], for those who are curious and ask, what commandments? The apostle John (one of the 12 who can authoritatively confirm the words of the Messiah) said the old one (the Mosaic Law) [1 Jn 2:7; 2:24; 3:11; 2 Jn 1:5-6].
- Just in case this statement of the Messiah and Apostle John is not clear enough still, John the Apostle, with the rest of the 11 (all of who can authoritatively confirm the words of the Messiah) most definitely accepted this word of the Lord as true and thereby caution us not to accept anyone who doesn’t [2 Jn 1:1-11]. So far so good, all seems to be going well.
- Out of the blue, Paul comes along and says that though all things are lawful for him, they are yet not expedient (necessary) for him, and he will personally not be brought under the power of any law [1 Co 6:12], thereby personally making the keeping of the law consequently OPTIONAL AND NOT NECESSARY. A seemingly cunning evil act the Messiah himself had once accused the Pharisees of exercising- working to make God’s law of non-effect [Mt 15:1-6].
- It is easy to disregard this observation as petty and futile because we read in [2 Tim 3:16] that all scripture were written by the inspiration of God, but have we noticed that nowhere in the Bible (BBPPO) were we ever told that all scripture were compiled into one book by the inspiration of God? Open your eyes people, for the scripture existed as separate scrolls when Paul made that statement in [2 Tim 3:16] only later becoming bound as one book called the Bible about 260 years later. Though this is just an introduction to the mission of the man called Paul, from here however, any wise soldier even if just 50% awoken, can begin to do the rest of the maths.
