Gal. 3:24-29,”[Being] justified by faith… you are all [children] of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ [when you accepted Him personally,] have put on Christ. [Spiritually,] there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are [all] Christ’s, then you are of [believing] Abraham's seed, and heirs [of heaven] according to the promise.”
1 Pt. 2:9-10, “[You who have personally and sincerely accepted Jesus, Jn. 1:11-13,] are a [spiritual] chosen generation, a [spiritual] royal priesthood, a [spiritual] holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises [and truth] of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light, who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.”
In ‘The Great Ecclesiastical Conspiracy,’ (p. 15,) Davis and Clark exposed the appalling distortion of the original concept of the humble, spiritually mature Elderly or God-called, spiritually ‘older persons.’ [1 Cor. 3:1-17.] They wrote that the crafty Theosis-translators of the King James Bible changed “the Greek adjective ‘presbuteros,’ (‘older’ or ‘elderly’) to a noun, [‘elder,’] represented in the English text by official, [divinely hierarchical] sounding titles, i.e. presbyter, [bishop, pastor, priest,] and ELDER… The original word… is the Greek ‘presbuteros,’ which literally means [a spiritually] ‘aged person.’”
Truth is, Jesus’ elderly servants could not rule from the top of the body as hundreds of ‘heads’ - for that would not be the body or bride of Christ, but the beastly, disfigured harlot of religion. If one should do a painting of this multi-headed monster, it would be even more bizarre than it’s multi-headed counterpart, the political beast from the sea, (Rev. 13.)

THE DEFORMED CHRISTIAN CHURCH MONSTER HAS THOUSANDS OF ‘HEADS’
Jesus declared that He Alone is God, Christ, High Priest, and Head of all His believers - who are all mere members of His own, blood-bought, spiritual body, because they are all “possessed” or fully indwelt by His Holy Spirit, (Col. 1:18; Eph. 1:12-14; 1 Jn. 2:27.) This is how Jesus composed His body of sincere believers; His only New Covenant, spiritual temple, or His Spiritual Kingdom here on earth, (Acts 2; 1 Cor. 6:15-20.) That is why Jesus declared in Lu. 17:20-21, “...The Kingdom of God does not come with observation, [as it is not a physical kingdom,] ...for the Kingdom of God is within you.” As He explained to Pontius Pilate during His trial, “My Kingdom is not from here… [It has no such origin or source. My Kingdom is completely spiritual,]” (Jn. 18:36.)
Opposed to the church system that was Christianized from paganism, and therefore, has many divisions or denominations and hierarchical ‘heads,’ a real body can only be steered or directed by one brain or mind: one ‘head,’ which controls a single body, (Jn. 14:6.) As a result, Jesus Alone is The Head of His entire spiritual body of believers. And just as a natural body, the individual members of Jesus’ body are all equally important. There is no one more important or greater than any of the other members of His body. Jesus is completely Sovereign and makes all the decisions pertaining to His body, but “He is not a respecter of persons” and does not show human favoritism, (Rom. 2:11; 1 Cor. 12:11.)
[Acknowledgement to the people who compiled and published these images]
Above, on left: Jesus’ blood-bought body of true believers has only One Head: Jesus of the Bible, and all His true believers “are His body together and members of His body in particular,” (Col. 1:18; 1 Cor. 12:12-27.) All His true believers have only One God over them all. This is Monotheism or the One God of the Bible; described in Col. 2:9-10.
Above, on right: This pagan image depicts the complete opposite of Jesus’ body of believers. Many heads or gods on a body is polytheism; the worship of many gods. Those ‘heads’ signify many ‘gods’ that rule the body from the top. So, this pagan image perfectly depicts the Christian church system with it’s innumerable clergies of ruling ‘heads.’
Jesus Alone reigns from the ‘top’ of His body as The Only Head, and all His true believers, (who are all equally important to the body,) must serve the whole body under the direction of The Head. None of the members of Jesus’ body can rule as “little gods and christs” from the top as in paganism and in Christianity. All the members must minister or serve the body as willing, spiritual “slaves,” who spiritually “wash the body’s feet” with the truth of God’s Word and the gifts, which the Holy Spirit had entrusted to them, (1 Cor. 12: 4-27.) In view of that, as equal members of the body, they can only function from the bottom up. This humble ministry or service to His entire body is what Jesus demonstrated when He washed His disciples’ feet. Therefore, Jn. 13:3-17 is not a commandment to keep “the washing of feet” as an outward, ritual ceremony like some churches do. Those churches miss the entire meaning of servanthood to Jesus and the members of His body.
In contrast to the meaning and word “church,” contextual Bible truth teaches that there are no special ‘offices’ or ranks among Jesus’ body of believers. They are all on the same spiritual level before God in His Spiritual Kingdom, (Jn. 18:36.) Paul explained in Gal. 3:26-28 and 1 Cor. 12:13, “For we are all [spiritual] sons of God [just as we are all spiritual virgins or the bride of Christ, Gal. 3:28,] through [our personal] faith in Christ Jesus... For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one [spiritual] body – whether Jews or Greeks, [from different ethnic groups on a physical level,] slaves or free, [occupying different statuses in this world...] or men or women, [or different genders on a physical level. But spiritually,] we are all one [body without race, status, or gender] in Christ Jesus.”
However, just as the members of a physical body have different functions to keep the body alive, active, healthy, and growing, so the members of Jesus’ spiritual body “have diversities of gifts, but all from the same [indwelling] Holy Spirit.” Although we all have “different ministries and diversities of activities, it is still the same God Who works all in all…” To minister to the body as a whole, the Holy Spirit gives to every member of Jesus’ body some of His “diverse” spiritual gifts, which fit His specific callings to each of them, (Eph. 5:22-27; Gal. 3:28; 1 Cor. 12:13-31.)
Glorified, one-man band, ruling pastors and other posts do not exist in the ecclesia or gathering together of Jesus’ body
In the Scripturally born again body of Christ, there are no one-man band “heads” in the form of pastors that herd and control all his church members or supposedly take care of them in grand church style — that is Christianized, pagan polytheism; the worship of many ‘heads,’ (christs and gods,) which rule the body from the top, as explained above.
· 1 Cor. 12:19-31, “If the body were only one member, where would the body be? ...The eye cannot say to the hand or feet, [and also to the less presentable parts such as the kidneys that filter out toxins from the body,] ‘I have no need of you...’” So, in Jesus’ true fellowships where He Alone is The Head and other “heads” do not exist, one person can never be called to manage, supply needs, watch over, lead, rebuke, correct, encourage, teach, and do everything going on in a church set-up. Who does such a pastor on steroids think he is — Jesus Himself? Yes, of course he believes he is “a manifest christ and god,” (or god in the flesh,) because ever so slyly, that is what the churches teach pastors in their universities, collages, and training schools.
Scripture does command us to “do whatever our hands find to do, and to do it with all our might… [For] whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men…” (Eccl. 9:10; Col. 3:23.) Nevertheless, one man will not be called by God to “shepherd,” “equip the saints for service,” etcetera, all by himself. Still, as God present the opportunities, these attributes might overlap the service of those whom the Holy Spirit really called as humble teachers, pastors, evangelists… prophets, workers of miracles, gifts of healings, helps, administrators, gifts of varieties of tongues…” Because we all “have gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them,” Paul commanded. “If prophecy, ministry, teaching, exhortation, giving, leading, or showing mercy, let us do that with cheerfulness,” (2 Tim. 4:2; Eph. 5:11; Rom. 12:1-8.)
God-called servants in the body of Christ will always submit to the entire body in everything true and Godly; acknowledging absolute dependence on the Holy Spirit and Jesus’ body as a whole. And yes, these ministries can overlap according to the different gifts, which the Spirit entrusted to them. But no one is a Lone Ranger in the body of Christ.
I say it again because it is most important to remember that, in relation to the Only Head of the body, Jesus Himself, all the members of His spiritual body are equal before His throne.
Truth is, if Jesus’ pastors, prophets, teachers, evangelists, and all the other servants mentioned here could have been a hierarchy that “rules” from the top of the body as thousands of ‘heads,’ that would not be the body or bride of Christ, but the beastly, polytheist, despotic gods of Christian and other religion, (Rev. 17 & 18.)
THE “SPIRITUAL ELDERLY” OF JESUS’ BODY VERSUS THE HIERHARCHY OF CHURCH-CIRCLE ‘ELDERS’
To justify their monstrous church hierarchy, which consists of thousands of ranking ‘heads’ on the so-called ‘body of christ,’ Catholic and Protestant church “fathers” wrote extremely false doctrines into Scripture. (E.g., in addition to the gross distortion of their “elder” and so-called “head elder” posts, the church office or more important ‘post’ of Roman Catholic ‘bishop’ was unscrupulously added to Protestant Scripture by their Bible translators.)
Davis and Clark exposed this appalling falsification of the original concept of the humble, spiritually mature “elderly” or spiritually [God-called] ‘older persons’ in the body of Christ, in their book ‘The Great Ecclesiastical Conspiracy,’ p. 15, (1 Cor. 3:1-17.) They wrote, “The true ‘elderly’ of original Scripture are not the hierarchical [church-circle] ‘elders.’”
These writers say that the crafty Theosis-translators of the King James Bible “changed the Greek adjective ‘presbuteros,’ (‘older’ or ‘elderly’) to a noun, [‘elder,’] presented in the English text by official, [divinely hierarchical] sounding titles, i.e. presbyter, [bishop, pastor, priest,] and ‘elder…’ The original word… is the Greek “presbuteros” which literally means [a spiritually] ‘mature person.’” [Remember that all physical elderly believers are not necessarily wise, knowledgeable in the Scriptures, Holy-Spirit led, spiritual, or spiritually mature.]
The elder-distortion runs deeper than the Theosis (or god men) hierarchy of King James and his Bible translators. Fifteen centuries before King James ordered his English translation of the Bible, the church fathers of Roman Catholicism were already creating lofty titles and offices for the ‘royal and divine,’ hierarchical elder-rulers of their church circle. To this day, the ‘infallible’ elder-rulers of the entertaining but enslaving circus-ring church system carry a rod to drive the well-trained members of their churches systematically deeper into the ‘mysteries’ of their religion. However, Jesus ‘chastised’ or disciplined spiritually mature elderly servants, steadfastly teaching them His Scriptural truth to carry the real Gospel or the staff of the Holy Spirit, to teach and protect the body of Christ, (Heb. 12:5-11.)
While so-called ‘saintly’ elder-rulers “teach for pay and divine for money,” elderly-servants “labor, working with their own hands,” as not to be a burden to anyone, (Micah 3:10-11; 1 Cor. 4:12.) While elder-rulers are ‘ordained’ to royal godhood to occupy superior offices and to bear lofty titles, God’s spiritual elderly are ‘without honor,’ (1 Cor. 4:10.) While ‘devine’ elders bask in luxury and the adoration of the church system, the servant-elderly are “hard-pressed on every side… persecuted… and struck down…” While so-called ‘chief’ elder-rulers are ‘savage wolves that will not spare the flock,’ the humble elderly “always carry about in their own bodies the dying of Jesus…” – 2 Cor. 4:7-15.
‘Divine, infallible elder-rulers ‘head’ the church system, that circus-circle of like-minded friends; while corporately, all the members of Jesus’ true body occupy places of similar physical ‘unimportance.’ The members of Jesus’ body are all on exactly the same level under the Headship of Jesus. He Alone is the Everlasting High Priest, and all believers are priests of His spiritual priesthood, (Heb. 7:17; 1 Pet. 2:9-10.) Although the members of His body have different functions in His body, His humble “elderly” followers all serve on equal footing from under and among the assembly of believers and in conjunction with every other member, (Eph. 4:4-16; 1 Pt. 5:1; Jn. 13:14; 2 Jn. v.1.)
HOW DOES JESUS’ BODY OF BELIEVERS FUNCTION DURING THEIR GATHERING TOGETHER?
The hierarchies of ‘ordained’ god-clergy function as the all-knowing, most respected heads of their churches, but the body of Christ functions under the Headship of Jesus as a Godly whole. Where we see the human authority and control of ‘elders,’ we must know that Bible translators inserted Catholic inherited “authority” and ‘divine-men’ control into the Scriptures, which do not exist in the context of Bible passages.
Paul must have been schizophrenic to teach one thing while modeling another — standing on his so-called superior apostolic ‘rights’ and ‘divine authority,’ excluding women from ministry, etcetera. Women are female for their own husbands just as husbands are male for their own wives, not for the body of Christ or men and women in general. Spiritually in Christ, “there is neither male nor female, for we are all one in Him,” (Gal. 3:28.) Spiritually, racism, status and gender do not exist. Because of the reality of Catholic and Protestant tampering with the Scriptures, let us stick with what Paul taught in context concerning all things that fit into the whole of the New Testament Covenant.
The key to spiritual life in the “ecclesia” is “submission one to another” in everything good and Godly, allowing every believer to bring to the meetings what God had entrusted to him or her; living accountable before God and man.
1 Cor. 14:26-40 “If you come together, each of you has a psalm, teaching, tongue, revelation, and an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification of the body… and in order.” Eph. 5:15-21, “… And do not be drunk with wine [and other self-indulgence,] but be filled with the Spirit.” “Filled with the Spirit” is not Jesus’ baptism with the Holy Spirit at our personal rebirth through faith in Him, which is a once-off, complete and constant indwelling of the Spirit, (1 Jn. 2:27.) Being ‘filled with the Spirit’ as the temple of God is not ‘successive indwellings’ of the Spirit, but living in Holy-Spirit Headship and His Scriptural leading, which will produce the following during meetings: “Speaking to one another in psalms and spiritual songs, [praise and worship to God,] and giving thanks always for all things… while submitting to one another in the fear [deep respect] of God.”
· Without religious formalities, the God of “order” must be manifested while all personal agendas must cease during meetings, (1 Cor. 14:40.) The gathering together of believers is not an official, prescribed setup as in churches. Jesus explained to the woman at the well, “[After My resurrection and Pentecost,] you will neither on this mountain, [some holy place,] nor in Jerusalem, [some holy city,] worship the Father. [Contrary to formal sermons,] true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth… [because] God is Spirit…” (Jn. 4:21-24; 1 Ths. 5:23.)
Jesus’ disciples must simply “fellowship” or ‘interact’ with one another during their meetings; searching and discussing the Scriptures and personal problems and questions, praising God and praying together, while allowing the Spirit’s leading and gifts to flow ‘naturally’ through them and among them for the purpose to glorify God, and to minister to one another’s needs. In Acts 2:46, “continuing in the temple,” was inserted by Bible translators to force ‘church’ upon their members. Fellowship with temple-Jews was impossible as they still reject Jesus and His disciples to this day. However, the first disciples were indeed “in the Spirit” while “breaking bread from house to house.”
If we research Jesus’ fellowship with His disciples, we get an idea of how, (even before the cross and Pentecost,) during dinner, normal conversation, and on their journeys, Jesus ministered His Gospel and all His Moral-Law requirements to them. Jesus never changed that. He is still the Head of His body; He still ministers His truths and gifts like that.
· Likewise, in 1 Corinthians Chapters 12 & 14, Paul clearly taught how the gifts and ministrations of the indwelling Holy Spirit operate during meetings. And of course, these ‘meetings’ must not be under the control of human beings, but under the leading of the Holy Spirit Himself. Scripture stands immovably on the fact that the ongoing gifts of the Holy Spirit, which He Alone “gives as He wills,” (1 Cor. 12:11,) remained a sure reality through the ages and are supposed to still function in the lives and during the meetings of all true believers. Many believers were so deeply disappointed and frightened by the mad church system, that they now completely reject the supernatural gifts and works of the Holy Spirit. But if we lose the Supernatural God of the Bible, the Lord Jesus Christ, we lose the only Real God Who Is the Creator of heaven and earth, and the Head and King of His believing body. We cannot focus so much on the bad things churches do that we lose the wonder of the Almighty Holy Spirit as traditional Protestants such as Calvinists did. Paul warned, “If [some] are unfaithful, God remains faithful. He cannot deny Himself,” (2 Tim. 2:13.) E.g., The fact that Satanists torture humans and animals to death to cannibalize and vampirize them, changes nothing about the Most Holy, Omnipotent blood sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ. The real supernatural gifts and works of the Holy Spirit cannot be compared to the madness we see in church.
Yet, someone asked, “Who will take control, then, when things get out of hand during meetings?” This is not supposed to happen, but surely, those who are “spiritually mature” and grounded in Scriptural truth must be the Holy Spirit’s instruments to minister Godly rebuke, and everything else that might pertain to any specific situation, (Mt. 18:15-20.)
Paul explained in 1 Cor. 12:7-31, “[The diversities of gifts and different ministries] are activities [that manifest the works of the Holy Spirit,] and are given to each [member of the body] for the profit of all… [Paul then lists the gifts, such as “a word of wisdom, a word of knowledge, [extraordinary] faith under certain circumstances, [multifaceted] healings [on emotional and physical levels,] miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, different kinds of tongues, and interpretation of tongues,” (see Mark. 16:16-18.)
The gathering together of Jesus’ sincere disciples must never become a ‘free for all and do as you like’ chaotic circus. In mutual respect, all the gifts, and especially tongues and prophecy, must manifest in turn, which must be interpreted to edify the body, while the others must judge the ‘words’ to see whether it is of God, (1 Cor. 14:26-33.) For God is not the author of confusion, [chaos, and falsity,] but of peace [and truth…]”
THE GODFATHERS OF THE CHURCH CIRCLE AND THEIR POLITICAL-CHRISTIAN KINGDOM ON EARTH
The godfathers and godmothers of Christian Theosis simply “had” to rule the world physically, and so, they established, through their affiliation with the ruling monarch in every country, a political kingdom of ‘god’ here on earth under the rule of the pagan, Christianized church system. During the centuries after Jesus ascension and the outpouring of the indwelling Holy Spirit at Pentecost, the ‘unlike union’ or “interbreeding of different species,” (this time, between King and Church,) produced spiritual, financial, and military ‘giants,’ who imperialized large portions of the earth “for king and god,” (Rev. 17 & 18.) Through this political/religious fornication, both king and church would become super-rich and extremely powerful; splurging on blood and torture, and trading in “the bodies and souls of men” – (Rev. 18:20.)
[Here are discussions of economic slavery, the horrible Christian slave trade, the Christian crusades or Christian human and animal sacrifice to their gods of religion, the Roman Catholic inquisitions, and the Protestant inquisitions. These are some of the subjects in the book, “Witchcraft (Pagan & Christian,) What is that?”]
In the Christian quest for totalitarian political and religious rule, Roman Catholic ‘saint’ Augustine fathered the distorted Catholic-Protestant doctrine of predestination. Augustine declared and John Calvin especially, confirmed, “Christ died only for an elect, [the ‘divine’ Christian members of their individual denominations as they all choose to see God’s truth.] Man has a free will, but can make no good choices. Yet, God has ordained those whom He chose to save. The number of the elect is fixed. Whatever man does or chooses, grace is irresistible and results in conversion to the church.”
“Conversion” simply means to change churches. God commanded complete spiritual and mental “transformation” through the Scriptural rebirth by personal faith in Jesus, and continual “renewal of the mind” through Scriptural knowledge and obedience to the Moral Law, in the leading of the Holy Spirit, (Rom. 12:1-2; Jn. 13:34.) How can anyone accept such illogic, unscriptural lies, which nullify the entire New Covenant Gospel of Grace; written in the blood of Jesus? (Jn. 3:16; 1:12-13; 3:3-5) In fact, this is not salvation at all. These dogmas are deceptions straight from hell!
Protestant theologians also disseminated this satanic gospel as ‘Divine Predestination and Efficacious Grace,’ and it is still the core of churches such as the Calvinist “Dutch Reformed and Reformed (“Hervormde”) Churches. In reality, all “five points of Calvinism,” called “doctrines of grace,” came directly from Roman Catholicism, which in turn, stole them from paganism. These are: total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, and perseverance of the saints. [Additional reading: ‘Calvinism On The Rise In Southern Baptist Life,’ by Audrey Barrick.]
Calvin, especially, considered ‘Saint Augustine the Blessed’ one of the ‘theological fathers’ of the Reformation, and his followers do the same to this day. As a result, both Luther and Calvin found the inspiration for their extremely violent dissemination of Protestantism in Augustine’s Kingdom Now declaration, “Why should not the church use force in compelling her lost sons to return?” Hence, according to Christianity, bloody Christian crusades and Roman Catholic and Protestant Inquisitions are “just and holy war!”
What a silly question Augustine posed; coming from a person who taught that no one can make any good free choices because their god has already ordained to godhood all those He chose to save. What happened to the entire New Testament Covenant in Christ? One can only read Jn. 3:16 to know that there is no salvation, redemption, and blessing in any of these churches, for “God SO loved the whole world, that He gave His only begotten Son, so that whoever [personally chooses] to believe in Him, shall not perish, but have eternal life!” What cruel, satanic god they serve! Can anyone really believe that the God of the Bible would have sent them to force millions upon millions of people into their “kingdoms of god here on earth” through war, violence, and other unmentionable forms of torture?
