If you are wondering why we are not seeing more power in the church or why people are falling away, start here. Contrary to popular belief, it is not because of a lack of reaching out or becoming more relevant. It is because of a lack of holiness.

This doctrine is horrendous because it runs hand-in-hand with the GWAAS doctrine (below). It can remove the fear of God, prevent people from perfecting themselves, and it supports ALL the false doctrines. Therefore, many are not running the “serious” race to be ready for His coming and you may find that these people often recite “We’ll never be perfect” as a mantra. Believing in this doctrine can cause prevalent sins from blatant unbelief to murderous intent by self-reliance because they have no plans to lay their life down, but would rather fight, rather than putting their hope and trust in the One who could protect and save.
This sneaky false doctrine, which is also the strongest, causes a fear of the law and supports the “GWWAS” doctrine (below), thereby removing people from the fear of God because they cannot move onto perfection because the fear of being “under the law” blinds them from adhering to the rest of the New Testament, especially for godly women who are required to:
be a keeper AT home;
not teaching men nor usurping authority over the men in church;
not speaking in church;
and considering head covering.
O yes, the “law” and being “under law” have been severely twisted in this doctrine, which ultimately redefines women’s roles through modernization because they are also adhering to the GWWAS (below). This false doctrine teaches a fear of being “religious” because of how the belief has twisted the understanding of the law. It is amazing how –through this doctrine– one “under the Old law” act by the Apostle Peter spoken of in Galatians 2, plus a misunderstanding of the hypocrites problem, constitutes a complete withdrawal from the strict and holy doctrine that the Apostle Paul (known as a “Master Builder” in Christ) teaches and commands us to adhere to and guard.
This is the most bloated false doctrine. This belief radically supports OSAS and removes the fear of the Lord so far that most Christians actually abound in looking like the world now. This false doctrine has convinced people to think that there is NO sin that could ever separate them from the love of God because His grace covers us so that we can sin because “we’ll never be perfect,” but then they say that they are perfect automatically because Jesus covers them. (Interestingly, this is part true, but not true at the same time. This is why you have to get the breakdown of why this is a web of deceit and you must be careful how you are interpreting it.) Because of this false teaching, people have also been led to believe that working out their salvation is not really necessary because the false doctrine teaches the “work” has already been done, which they are confusing with what the Bible actually says. Also, this belief has blinded both men and women to decide in their hearts that the outside appearance of our lives no longer matters; they believe the Bible is out-of-date regarding the New Testament scriptures on worldliness, modest apparel, hair adorning, order in church, order at home, etc., except of course when certain parts suit their readiness. Unfortunately, because of this false teaching, many people have extended the generous grace of God into the acceptance of a lazy Christianity where they are soft on sin with many, big sins committed by themselves or their brethren. However, the driving force is usually about being cool, exciting, and accepting —and calling it love and gospel, but it tends to manifest itself as a demonstration of embracing everything worldly. Unfortunately, this false doctrine teaches people to love a soft, feel-good message without the fear of the Lord. Also, they may tend to post their own statements as doctrine rather than the scriptures and they confuse the antithesis of righteous actions (e.g. Godly rebuke, warning, separation, or even contending–in their perspective–is perceived as being unloving or judging.). Because of this antithesis problem, you cannot expect any support from them, but they will pretend it’s there.
Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. And ye know that He was manifested to take away our sins; and in Him is no sin. Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous. ~1 John 3:4-7 KJV
