Simple Mistakes Affecting Christian Knowledge
Updated: 07/01/2021

SMACK: these are SOME of the blatant mistakes made in Christian thinking.

  1. Hades = Hell. This was an unwarranted equation. Hades was simply the "unseen realm" where people were thought to go upon dying.
  2. Gehenna = Hell. Gehenna was literally the Valley of Hinnom outside of Jerusalem, and was simply the city refuse dump.
  3. Sin = transgression of the law. Sin is misunderstanding and misrepresenting God,
  4. Cross as burden, as in “Take up your cross and follow me.” The correct translation would be "Pull up your tethering stake and follow me."
  5. Satan = Devil. These were NOT the same. Satan was a mythical Angel who worked for God in testing men, and the "devil" concept has its roots in Mazdaism and Zoroastrianism.
  6. Personification of the "Holy Spirit" by Yeshua was wrongly made equivalent to a real, incorporeal being instead of  denoting "Attitude" or "Mentality"
  7. Personification of the "Father" as a person by Yeshua was wrongly made into a member of the mythical Trinity instead of being the corporate entity of the unfallen humans in the universe.
  8. Idioms, figures of speech and common sayings of the day and their intended meanings have been taken literally and have been made into doctrine or dogma.
  9. Overextending the meaning of what the Gospel author meant
  10. Faith and Belief as being equivalent to accepting dogma and doctrine instead of understanding the truth.
  11. Hypocrisy has been made equivalent to inconsistent behavior instead of its intended meaning denoting lack of critical thinking and good judgment.
  12. Ecclesia has been meta-morphized into being equivalent to church instead of being a council of seasoned, responsible men.
  13. WORSHIP has been made equivalent to indulging in rites and attending rituals, liturgy and religious services versus giving credit for the origin, and more especially the sustenance and enhancement of life. Worship is the opposite of fear.
  14. Dogma/Doctrine made equivalent to truth as final best we can know it, instead of concepts always being subject to clearer spiritual vision.
  15. Commandments made equivalent to demands of fiat law versus being Instructions or Directions
  16. SPIRIT made equivalent to a living entity versus being an attitude, an animating or vital principle held to give  meaning to living physical organisms, a temper or disposition of mind, the activating or essential principle influencing a person, a special attitude or frame of mind, a mental disposition characterized by firmness or assertiveness, the general intent or real meaning of a communication. Specifically in ontology, the underlying director of human volition and will.

SPIRITUAL adj: on the opposite end of the spectrum or in opposition to physical, it primarily means, in a technical or more general sense, "non-material". In a more significant sense it means producing morale, related to meaningful, pertaining to the realm of philosophy and theological ideas and beliefs, relating to intellectual, philosophical and religious matters rather than mundane or material matters.

THEOLOGY n: the systematic study and reasonable interpretation of conceptual information, spiritual knowledge and consistent logical extensions or conclusions primarily about the Creator as subject. Theology deals with the intangible or initially unknowable, spiritual truths which one must choose to believe, and pertains to WHY as well as HOW the Creator relates to the universe and humanity.
