THE DECEIVED & MORE DECEIVERS
We believe the Trinity concept has been emblazoned with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- abused and twisted ultimately to deceive not only
1) the intelligentsia (via the pythagorean theorem self-evidence; the pyramids; the geometric shape of a snowflake, for a few examples, worship of creation 99.9% truth of limits but not the 100% truth of the true creator of that creation)
2) but ALSO to deceive Christians as this concept has gained major ground in weak Protestant Christianity ("in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit...", soon to be encumbered by the Ecumenical movement and a 'unified world'.
From http://www.end-times-prophecy.org/about.html; which we also agree with:

From EMFJ.org (Ex-Masons For Jesus), this site's notes does not negate agreement of the rest:
"We believe in one God who is eternally existent in three persons--Father, Son and Holy Spirit who are infinite in glory, wisdom, holiness, justice, power and love.
We believe that God created everything out of nothing for His own purpose and pleasure through the person of the Son.
We believe man was created in the image and likeness of God; but through the sin of Adam, man fell into sin and is, therefore, lost apart from Christ. When he sinned, mankind incurred both physical and spiritual death; thus man became eternally separated from God and is incapable of providing redemption for himself. Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
We believe that the 66 books that comprise the Bible are the plenary, verballyinspiredWord of God, inerrant and infallible in the original manuscripts, and the guide and final authority in matters of faith and day to day life, interpreted by the Holy Spirit to each individual believer.
We believe Jesus Christ is true man and God, who in His incarnation was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary.
We believe in His earthly ministry Jesus Christ lived a sinless life that fully pleased His Father and that He performed miracles.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ of His own free will died on the cross to be the sacrifice for the redemption of man and that He bore the judgment required by God's holy justice against sin, thus making it possible for God to remain just and yet at the same time to justify those who believe in His Son Jesus Christ.
We believe by the power of God, Jesus Christ was raised from the dead in the same body now glorified. He ascended into Heaven where, at the right hand of God, He continually makes intercession for us.
We believe the Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son (TaresAndTheWheat: This may be some Masonic/Jesuit indoctrination result, also incurred by the Catholic Church, but this is only an observation); regenerates the believing sinner; indwells, guides, instructs and empowers the believer for Godly living and service. The Holy Spirit guides and gives power to the church, the body of Christ, to fulfill the Great Commission, and convicts the world of sin, man's un-righteousness, and resulting judgment by a Holy God.
We believe in the existence and personality of Satan, his complete opposition to God and his power over the unregenerate.
We believe Salvation is the gift of God and includes the forgiveness of sins, the imputation of the Righteousness of Jesus Christ, and the gift of eternal life. Union with the triune God provides all blessings in this life and the life hereafter. (TaresAndtheWheat: Again, indoctrination, but may be forgiveable possibly, God is one; this triune affect will possibly deceive many Christians who do not read their Bible regularly.)
We believe salvation is received by faith alone, apart from all good works and merit. Faith which leads to salvation produces repentance in the life of a believer.
We believe that those who by faith alone and through no merit of their own receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior are miraculously born again of the Holy Spirit and become children of God and partakers of His divine nature and eternal life.
We believe that the Holy Spirit baptizes all true believers, that He indwells believers, bestows spiritual gifts upon them, and empowers them for service and holy living.
We believe that by His Word and power God has given us everything pertaining to life and godliness, including not only salvation from the penalty of sin but instruction in righteousness for present sanctification and victorious living to the glory of God.
We believe the church, the Body of Christ, is composed of all those who have heard the Gospel of grace through faith and have been regenerated by the Spirit of God.
We believe the purpose of the church is to witness concerning Jesus Christ according to the Scriptures, and to preach the Gospel among all nations.
We believe Jesus Christ will come again to receive unto Himself those who believe in Him, that where He is, they may be also. He will come again personally and visibly to establish His kingdom.
We believe that those who are following Christ do not walk in darkness. Conversely, if a man is walking in darkness he is not following Christ."
13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." (Matthew 7:13-14)
7 Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. 8 All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. 9 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.[a] They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:7-10)
"Worship the ancient; The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, witness the mysteries and true revealing, join the club, are you in?...what if we revealed a Mother Goddess; does Mother Gaia work for you, or would you prefer a Holy Mother Mary?" -- Deceivers and the deceived.
THE DECEIVED & MORE DECEIVERS
We are not a limo service, but our truth service is free of charge. We offer opinions and research that show how Jesus Christ truly is the answer and solution to those who wish to acknowledge the true problem in the world, which is sin: not doing what is right. The world hates truth and the concept of sin because it shows that we as people are not as good as we think we are. Our hearts (also feelings) are deceitful, temporal, and easily swayed. But this is taken all too personally and turned into resentment against God.
We believe in ultimate truth and we do not stop searching at any truths along the way just because it seems convenient.
Don't ever forget it's your RELATIONSHIP with God that matters. Do not get lost in research if your relationship is sacrificed #1 (Read the BIBLE first); though, to know the tools of your enemy is important #2 (Read The Separating of the Tares and the Wheat).
Christians: do not be divided in LEGALISM. Be UNITED in the Holy Spirit; when you are in the Holy Spirit, you'll know what we're talking about. Forgiveness, mercy, LOVE.
