Escape from an apostate church through knowledge of Scriptures.
The following is warning letter to all members of the New Apostolic Church. (October 2004)
Dear New Apostolic Church members,
My name is Tim Hanline, and until recently, I was a priest in the New Apostolic Church.I was removed from the ministry for preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ at abortion clinics to save babies from the clutches of death (Proverbs 31:8-9, Proverbs 24:11-12).Many babies have been saved through this work, but I was harshly rebuked and dismissed by the NAC apostles.In so doing, the NAC apostles labeled what is good as evil(Isaiah, 5:20, Proverbs 17:13, 15).
The NAC is apostate, which means it is in rebellion against the Word of God as recorded in the Bible!As I will explain below, the dangers are serious, the consequences are eternal, and the time to correct this situation is now!
The Bible is now all but disregarded in the NAC!The ministers and members of the NAC generally do not study their Bibles daily (2 Timothy 3:14).The NAC is ignorant of Godís Word!As a result,
The NAC apostles claim more authority than God's Word!(2 Thessalonians 2:3-4) Perhaps they feel that they must marginalize Godís Word for the sake of peace (Jeremiah 6:14), but the result is
God's children are being destroyed because of a lack of Biblical knowledge!(Hosea 4:6)
Doctrines of demons are accepted in the NAC (1 Timothy 4:1).For example,
God's word explicitly forbids calling upon the dead (Deuteronomy 18:10-13),but Satan has convinced the NAC to conduct services for the dead.This is necromancy and witchcraft in disguise!Jesus Christ did not instruct us to do this!Satan is using this false doctrine to trick you into thinking that you might have a second chance at salvation after you die.This is a lie according to Godís Word! (Hebrews 9:27)Furthermore,
Adultery has become accepted.Jesus Christ explained adultery (Matt. 5:32) by teaching that if a man marries a divorced woman, he is committing adultery.You must obey God's commandments (1John 2:4) and not follow the world!
Idolatry is now rampant!Just like the heathens who worshipped carved images (Psalm 106: 36-40), the NAC members now worship the NAC apostles.The NAC has removed the real second commandment warning against idolatry!(Exodus 20:4-6)Even Apostle Paul knew his rightful place in the Godly ordained hierarchy, as he wrote that
The head of every man is Christ (1 Corinthians 11:3) and not the apostles.The NAC teaches that we should follow the apostles, but Christ has instructed us to follow Him only! (Matt. 23:8-10)
God has exposed false prophets in the NAC (Deuteronomy 18:15-22), but some NAC members did not recognize it!NAC members would rather have their idols, the NAC apostles, rather than Godís Word!
Even the "prophet" Geyer who called the apostles of the NAC by "prophesy" later rejected the NAC apostles (see Religious Instructions Teachers Manual Volume 3 page 139 under the heading 25 July 1878).
God's Holy Spirit will only be given to those who keep His commandments (John 14:15-16); The Holy Spirit is not given through simple hand-laying.You must commit to keeping Godís commandments to receive His Spirit!
Those who disobey God and refuse to repent will suffer damnation in Hell!(Matthew 25:41)
We do not know when day of the Lord will come, so the time to act is now!
Beloved, God's recorded Word is plainly written in black and white in the Holy Bible.I am simply relaying what God's Word says!(Deuteronomy 2:4)God's written word is very easy to understand if we care enoughto study it, and our victory is to have faith in Him! (1 John 5:4)Believe Him!Why should we try to fool ourselves into believing that God did not really mean what He inspired His prophets and Apostles to write?God meant absolutely every word, and He has instructed us not to add to His words or detract from them! (Revelation 22:18-19)
What to do: Study your Bible daily so that you will not be deceived!Believe Godís words, and teach others to do the same, otherwise Satan's words "hath God said" (Genesis 3:1) will also be a snare for us!We must answer Satan just as Jesus did (Matthew 4:3-11) by using the scriptures!Satan will always twist a few key scriptures (such as Acts 2:42 and Acts 8:17) in order to confuse and deceive you, so you must know your Bibles so that you will not be deceived!Given the time in which we live, the need for Bible knowledge is more urgent than ever! (Isaiah 30:1)
I am writing to you in the name of our savior Jesus Christ, out of concern and love for your souls.We cannot cooperate or compromise with the works of darkness (Ephesians 5:11), but we must expose them!The NAC is apostate, and we must trust in the authority and sufficiency of God's Word as recorded in the Bible!We ought to trust God rather than men! (Acts 5:29)
