If you consider yourself to be a Christian, that is, a follower of our Savior, Yahushua haMashiach (see Proverbs 30:4), we challenge
you to gather all of your religious doctrines and beliefs into one place and then prove to yourself from scripture that those doctrines
and beliefs are found there in their entirety and without having to play any semantictal tricks to make them fit. He said, "If you
love Me, keep My commandments." You cannot be His follower if you are not in obedience to Him and you cannot be in obedience to Him
if your beliefs and doctrines are not totally supported by His word.
In the vein of that challenge we have put the Consider This page
together so that you can easily compare the doctrines of scripture to those of "churchianity" (which is what we call all denominational
religions that do not adhere completely to scripture, which means all of them).
You may or may not believe or agree with what is written
here. That is your prerogative. All of the subjects have been researched thoroughly and reflect what the scriptures say whether you
choose to believe it or not. We are fallible humans, so understand that we too are open to scriptural correction and further enlightenment,
but we are not open to argument. We will discuss. We will not argue. If we discuss some subject and you are right, we will change
our beliefs accordingly, and we would expect the same from you.
Certain subjects have been presented to us so many times, and we have researched them as thoroughly as we know how, that now we no longer have any desire to “discuss” those subjects. We know what scripture says about them and we have heard all the possible arguments in support of them. Those arguments are not scripturally valid as you will see if you read the articles on this page concerning them. Those subjects are the so-called “feasts” and the clean/unclean diet
of the Law of Mosheh.
On this page are many items that you may find interesting and/or useful in your study. All of the items are
free, without any kind of obligation, and with few exceptions, in the public domain. We highly recommend the included Sacred Scripture
of Yahuwah, Restored Names Version as a study tool to read along with and compare to whatever version of scripture you are currently
using. You may be surprised at some of the things you discover.
What most people have learned in their lives about the written word
of our Creator Yahuwah has come from parents, preachers, or other members of whatever local "church" they attended as children.
Usually the things they were taught (or "inherited") were accepted without question and so became their "religion" for life. In the
greatest majority of cases among the so-called modern "church," these are the very "lies, worthlessness, and unprofitable things"
that YirmeYahuw (Jeremiah) wrote about in 16:19.
On occasion some people have questioned this "faith of their fathers" and found it to be wanting. When these questions deal with scriptural accuracy and adherence to the scripture, questions on subjects such as those found on this web page will become predominant. These questions can only be answered from the scripture, without adding any theories, "man's traditions," or anything else that are not absolutely supported in scripture. If it isn't in the scripture, it must not be part of our beliefs, for it will then be as our Savior said, "And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men." (MattithYahuw [Matthew] 15:9) Many of these traditions that are being taught as commandments of Yahuwah in the Protestant faiths actually come from the Roman Catholic Church or its early predecessor as it sought to add all of the followers of pagan religions to its roster. In that effort many pagan ideas, pagan doctrines, and pagan philosophies were allowed into the practices and beliefs of that "church." There they remain today and very few people even question them anymore. The single item of pagan worship that is most evident today is the practice of worshipping on "Sunday" or the "day of the invincible sun," as the pagans called it. Scripture shows plainly that those who are truly in the body of haMashiach (the Christ or the Anointed) will show the "sign" of keeping the seventh-day shabbath in accordance with scripture.
Download these subjects freely. Study them carefully with the scripture and some
good original language lexicons (and interlinears if possible) in hand. Compare what you read here with what you read in the scripture
and compare what you read in the scripture with your current beliefs. Do it with the love of Yahushua in your heart and the recognition
that it is His love for you that generated this site.
If you find that your beliefs don't coincide with what you read in the scriptures,
it's time for you to change your beliefs.
Not all of the answers on every subject or all of the information you will ever need on
a particular subject are included here, but enough is included to give you a good starting point to study for yourself what is contained
in the written word of our Eloah, Whose name is Yahuwah (pronounced yah-hoo-wah'), how it has been perverted by many people, and how
you can begin to understand through the guidance of His Sacred Spirit what is really there. Make sure that you take no man's word
for the things of the Kingdom, for man can be fatally wrong, and you will be the one who suffers the fatal wound. Man has also been
known to lie intentionally.
Read for yourself, study for yourself, and try the spirits, no matter from where or who they may claim
to be. Trust no one except Yahuwah (this includes His manifestations as the Father, the Son, and the Sacred Spirit). This principle
also applies to all quoted references on any scriptural subject and must be adhered to rigorously. Always check what you are told
and what you read against the standard of scripture to make sure that you are getting the true and correct information. We have been
lied to about so much already, and before it's over, we will be lied to again. Remember that Satan is called a "liar and a murderer
from the beginning." Yahuwah and His Son Yahushua are true!
