Matthew 7:6 –
“Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.
2 Timothy 3:1-7 –
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
2 Timothy 4:1-4 –
I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:
Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
Swine = Worldly Sinners outside the Church…
Dogs = Tares within the Church…
Deuteronomy 23:18 –
You shall not bring the wages of a harlot or the price of a dog to the house of the LORD your God for any vowed offering, for both of these are an abomination to the LORD your God.
Philippians 3:2 –
Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation!
Isaiah 56:10-12 –
His watchmen are blind, They are all ignorant; They are all dumb dogs, They cannot bark; Sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Yes, they are greedy dogs Which never have enough. And they are shepherds Who cannot understand; They all look to their own way, Every one for his own gain, From his own territory. “Come,” one says, “I will bring wine, And we will fill ourselves with intoxicating drink; Tomorrow will be as today, And much more abundant.”
Wine “Intoxicating Drink” = False and Unsound Doctrines…
Dog is God spelled backwards…
Isaiah 55:8-9 –
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD.”For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Hence Dogs are worldly Christians in name only who think and reason backwards from the way our Father Above thinks and reasons…
2 Timothy 3:6-7 –
For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Truth = Jesus
John 14:6 –
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
Hence Dogs also = The “Five Foolish Virgins of Matt. 25 who didn’t bring enough “Oil – Holy Spirit” for their Lamps. They are always learning – Studying the Bible – but never coming to a knowledge of the truth. Because they do not have a “Personal Relationship” with Jesus.
Matthew 7:21-23 –
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
Proverbs 16:25 –
There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.
Unsound Doctrines are Memes or Intellectual Viruses which are ideas and concepts that run counter to Biblical Ideals and Concepts Christians are pledged to follow. That disable – turn off – the individuals “Heart Conversion” while leaving the “Minds Conversion” intact so that the “Fallen Christian” still thinks he/she is converted.
The three most deceptive and virulent Memes infiltrating the Church – being brought in by Unconverted Church Members – are as follows:
1) Feminism – Women’s Rights…
2) Political Conservatism…
3) Economic Conservatism…
Revelation 22:14-15 –
Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.
John 14:15-18, 23-24 –
“If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever – the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.”
Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.”
John 13:34-35 –
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
1 Peter 1:22-25 –
Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, because “All flesh is as grass, And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, And its flower falls away, But the word of the LORD endures forever.” Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.
Matthew 22:35-40 –
Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
Those with Cold – Unconverted Hearts – and Hot Heads – Minds that only assent to the Truth – cannot do the “Will of God” which is to love God supremely and our Fellow Men and Women as Ourselves.
