The road of false doctrine that leads to full blown deception consists of establishing four pseudo doctrines that are increasingly becoming popularized throughout the wider church. While there may be many traveling this road and progressing at different stages, regrettably, some have reached the fourth stage of preaching the gospel of inclusion, which opens the door for a host of false teachings and idolatrous acts.


The word “sin” itself has somehow evolved into a pejorative word that should not be mentioned or discussed in many parts of the church. The removal of the term “sin” is performed by constantly receiving the injectant strains of statements such as: No need to address sin, don’t be sin conscious, we’re not into sin management, sin is not that important, God doesn’t hold our sin against us, sin no longer has consequences, all sin has been forgiven; which includes your past, present, and future sin. These phrases and many others like them slowly decompose the biblical teaching pertaining to the dangers of practicing sin.

The process of receiving salvation is to confess and acknowledge our sins and be willing to repent and turn from them. We are not to make excuses to continue practicing sin.

Whether we believe it or not, the wages of sin has been and will continue to be death. Therefore, to discard something that carries a death sentence is not only irresponsible but very dangerous. Something such as “practicing sin” is worth confronting in our lives and bringing adjustment to it. To remove or ignore sin as if it doesn’t exist only creates some “illusionary non-consequential mentality” pertaining to the practice of sin that leads to bondage and ultimate destruction if not corrected.


Quite naturally, after removing sin from the equation, by default, repentance becomes unnecessary and the next target on the road of false doctrine. Consequently, if we concede there is no sin, then there is nothing to repent for. Therefore, the teaching and practice of repentance slowly becomes extinct accompanied with the buzz words of it being judgmental and irrelevant.

Repentance is a requirement that leads us away from sin and results in salvation. However, worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death.

I am not sorry that I sent that severe letter to you, though I was sorry at first, for I know it was painful to you for a little while. Now I am glad I sent it, not because it hurt you, but because the pain caused you to repent and change your ways. It was the kind of sorrow God wants his people to have, so you were not harmed by us in any way. For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death. [2 Corinthians 7:8-10]


Due to the successful removal of sin and repentance an “intellectual portal” organically ripens to facilitate the recasting of biblical theology, which decisively proclaims “the place the Bible calls hell does not exist.” At this moment, the road of false doctrine leading up to this point becomes palatable to begin recasting the biblical position of hell by proclaiming it doesn’t exist or redefining it by saying: it’s a state of mind, hell is here on earth, or hell is exclusively for Satan and demons and no humans go there. To solidify this doctrine, is to be sure to demonize anyone who preaches a biblical account of hell as being a doom and gloom, judgmental prophet.

While it’s true many do not want to accept the reality of the biblical account of hell, it does not expunge the finality and eternal existence that people who reject Jesus Christ and the word of God are destined for hell unless they repent.


At this stage, once sin, repentance, and hell are removed it becomes quite natural and even incumbent among those who travel this road to begin teaching that “all of mankind will enter into heaven whether they realize it or not,” after all, hell doesn’t exist. This doctrine is very popular among mankind today simply because in our eyes we see ourselves as being inherently good people.

If we follow the trajectory of false doctrine, we will see both the subtle and blatant progressions of these doctrines trending within the church. While the sequence listed above is a common expression of false doctrine that leads to full blown deception, it is not exclusively limited to this specific order. The particular doctrines can certainly be embraced in a different categorical order.


Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, (Acts 3:19)

Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin? But because you are stubborn and refuse to turn from your sin, you are storing up terrible punishment for yourself. For a day of anger is coming, when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed. He will judge everyone according to what they have done. He will give eternal life to those who keep on doing good, seeking after the glory and honor and immortality that God offers. But he will pour out his anger and wrath on those who live for themselves, who refuse to obey the truth and instead live lives of wickedness. There will be trouble and calamity for everyone who keeps on doing what is evil—for the Jew first and also for the Gentile. (Romans 2:4-9)

But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. (Romans 1:18)

Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:32)
