I was apprehensive about downloading a short ebooklet entitled Does Your Church Possess… -“The Whole Truth”? “Apprehensive” because you never know with these things until you figure out who wrote it and why. Turns out, though, it was written by Raymond F McNair, and is available via HTML format as well at Does Your Church Possess… “The Whole Truth”? by Raymond F. McNair. It’s actually a good read.
I have often wondered about ministers who will proclaim they teach “the whole truth” or “the entire truth”. How can they say that? In order to teach the “whole” truth, they would have to know the whole truth, and that would mean they would know the date and time of Christ’s return.
That would mean they know more than Christ Himself!
33So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
42Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
3Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. (Revelation 3:3, King James Version)
So, if a minister says he or his organization teaches the “whole truth”, he must either:
Be saying he knows when Christ will return. If that is the case, run and don’t walk to the nearest exit.
Admit that he doesn’t know the “whole” truth.
If he can do neither, he is a liar and shouldn’t be listened to.
Some other things he probably doesn’t know:
The exact day and hour that the earth was created.
The exact day and hour man was created.
Do wormholes really exist? If so, are they really portals into another universe or are they just pathways to different parts of our own?
Can time exist outside of matter? If not, then how were angelic beings able to cope prior to the earth’s creation?
You get the point. Only God is omniscient. No man is.
