A Thief and a Robber
John 10:1. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
On the Introductory page of this website we write the following.
For two thousand years, scholars and theologians have interpreted the Bible to suit their own ideological perspective, while the Bible categorically states in 2 Peter 1:20 that it is not for any private interpretation. In fact, it is just the opposite. The Word of God is a discerner of all things and is the absolute and final answer to every question (Hebrews 4:14).
The purpose of this article is to show the people of this world who the thieves and robbers are that the Bible refers to in John 10:1: who continue to steal words from the Bible for their own purpose.
This article was written on October 1, 2010, almost twenty six years after God started to reveal Himself to us and after we started our journey of repentance. Since God sent us out into the world to preach the Gospel of Christ and to show the people of this world how they have been deceived, we have come to know that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12).
Now, God has equipped us with His whole armour as described in Ephesians 6:13-17 and as good soldiers for Christ (2 Tim. 2:3) we continue to reach out to the people of this world with our professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ (2 Cor. 9:13) and the gospel of the Kingdom (Matthew 4:23; 9:35; 24:14).
Since the days of Adam and Eve many false prophets and deceivers have gone out into the world (1 John 4:1-6) and we have attempted to show through the information on this website how and by whom this whole world has been deceived (Rev. 12:9).
Satan, the prince and god of this world (John 12:31; 14:30; 2 Cor. 4:4) hath blinded the minds of them which believe not and has tried every means to disguise himself as an angel of light as he has transformed himself into an apostle of Christ through the thousands of different religions, whose ministers have transformed themselves as ministers of righteousness; but whose end shall be according to their works (2 Cor. 11:13-15).
The events that have started to change the face of this world and the revelations of the workings of the spirit of this world and the falsehood and lies of religious doctrines are slowly tearing apart the roots of the foundations of this world. The revelation of the Mystery Babylon, the Mother of Harlots (Roman Catholic Church) and abominations of the earth are a good example (Revelation 17:5).
The thieves and robbers described in John 10:1-18 are all those that are in bondage to the spirit of this world and who use the Word of God in vain (Matthew 15:9). The Word is God (John 10:1) and as long as mankind is separated from God, they will not be able to understand the Bible as it is spiritually discerned (1 Cor. 2:14).
Consider the events in Atlanta, Georgia recently involving Bishop Eddie Long. Bishop Long isn't just a preacher with a storefront church. He oversees a massive 240-acre complex in Lithonia, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta, a congregation of 25,000 members, schools, and an international ministry that is seen on TBN, Daystar. One should not forget that he uses a Bentley for his personal transportation. Does anyone have any idea how much money he has taken from the people to amass all of this?
Still, after all the revelations, the 25,000 members of this megachurch were still lined up for last weekend's service, most of them carrying a Bible, which they are unable to understand (1 Cor. 2:14). Yes, the Bible is true in all things and mankind indeed does prefers darkness over light (John 3:19). Eddie Long is a false apostle who was born in sin and will remain spiritually blind, unless he repents and turns from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God. He will die in his sin as will the members of his congregation. The New Birth Missionary Baptist Church is not the House of God but the synagogue of Satan (Rev. 2:9). Now, you may ask yourself: Who is going to believe that? But it is God's Holy Truth according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him (John 14:17).
But the day will come and is already here that Eddie Long's Ministry will be brought to nought, as will the work of all the false preachers and prophets throughout this world. Please remember, all of this is and in the future will be God's doing, who will bring all deceitful workers to an open shame (Jeremiah 23:10-40) and his days of judgment are already here.
* Added on April 5, 2017. Eddie Long died on January 15, 2017, at the age of 63 from an aggressive form of cancer.
We have explained in great detail the role of the media in all of this. As part of the deceptions of this world most major media-networks have started to employ individuals now that claim to be spiritual reporters, so do most major newspapers. All of them claim to be specialists in their respective fields but they do not know that they are only adding to the deceitful ways of this world.
CNN has even introduced a special blog about religion, where people express worldly opinions and go back and forth in a multimedia, multi-platform world, where division flourishes at its very best (Matthew 12:25). Our local TV station even spent time and resources this week on a report on 'Witchcraft' during their evening news-hour (Gal. 5:20). While they can find time and resources to report on such falsehood as witchcraft and sorcery, they continue to ignore the truth concerning the gospel of Christ and our message of repentance.
We have explained our work with the local media in great detail on this website in the article Influence of the Media. Our local paper also has a religious page included with its Saturday issue. One of their reporters has a bi-weekly column called "In the Spirit". The reporter does not know what spirit she is of (Luke 9:55) as she is spiritually blind but at the same time claims to be an expert on every issue and even steals words from the Bible for the use of her column of which she has no knowledge or any understanding. She is a deceitful worker. However, in her role as a freelance writer for the paper, she is allowed to deceive all of its readers, while no corrections are allowed to be printed.
For a number of years and as good soldiers for Christ, we have attempted to correct the reporter in her use of the Word of God and to give you a better understanding of our work and to show you who the thieves and robbers are of the Word of God, we are listing a few copies of our communication as part of this article.
There have been many e-mails to this particular reporter but the first one as part of this article was e-mailed August 14, 2010 and as part of our communication we also forwarded her a copy of our letter to the Executive Director of Feed Nova Scotia and the Chair of the Social Justice Committee in our Province, two other organizations who use words of scripture for their own use without any spiritual meaning.
Subject: Corrections – You're more than just a number
This is in response to your recent column in The Chronicle Herald – You're more than just a number. In the days when Bishop Colin Campbell was allowed to use The Chronicle Herald to communicate his personal ill conceived messages and doctrines, which were according to the spirit of this world, we decided to take his column one time and make corrections, paragraph by paragraph, to show him the only true way and the areas he had erred, according to the true and living God.
The following week he used his column to personally attack the work of our Ministry, which is in Christ. Have you followed the news concerning the Archdiocese of Antigonish the last twenty years? We even invited Colin Campbell to a public debate but we never heard back from him? Where is he now? A similar invitation to an open public debate was extended to Mr. Graham Dennis, the publisher of our local paper The Chronicle Herald in 2008, and all of his staff but we never heard back from him either. In addition to our invitation, we also promised to make a complimentary copy of our book A World Deceived available to all those in attendance. They even refused to display our message of repentance in the form of prepaid ads, while they continue to advertise messages and promote the false doctrines of every false religion mankind can envision.
Trust us, all of scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:16).
1) We are humans.
- All humans (including yourself) are born in sin through the sinful seed of their natural fathers (1 Peter 1:23). In your natural state you are separated from God and unless you repent you will die in your sin. Please study what it means to repent - Ezekiel 26:18; 18; Matthew 21:32; Luke 13:1-5; Acts 5:31; 8:22; 17:16-31; 26:18; Romans 2:4; 12:2; 2 Cor. 3:16; Phil. 3:20,21; 2 Tim. 2:25-26; 2 Peter 3:9.
- The carnal (human) mind is enmity against God (Romans 8:5-8).
You name your column "In the Spirit" (Romans 8:9), while you don't know what manner of spirit you are of (Luke 9:55) as you are spiritually blind and service unto them which by nature are no gods (Gal. 4:8). You have transformed yourself into an angel of light (2 Cor. 11:14), while you are a deceitful worker and have stolen the words "In the Spirit" from the Word of God.
- Ye adulterers and adulteresses (spiritual adultery that is), know ye not that friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God (James 4:4).
2) I'll take spiritual sustenance number 9.
- There is no such thing.
3) God, could you toss in the number 12 combo?
- There is no such thing.
4) Furthermore, the Creator must have invented the concept of numbers.
- The workings of mankind are after the spirit, wisdom and knowledge of this world (1 Cor. 2:4-16). The concept of numbers was not invented by God but rather by mankind for its own purpose.
5) Life may have begun eons ago with one man, formed from specks of dust and made into two after a rib was removed.
- Life as you refer to it and according to the natural body (1 Cor. 15:44), evolved for billions of years before God chose Adam in approximately 4000 BC as the first Son of God to preach The Kingdom of God and to teach mankind about God. Adam and Eve were not the first man and woman that walked the face of the earth. Adam died at 930 years of age as God had separated Himself from Adam. You can read more about this mystery in the article Creation, Who is God and who is Satan? and The Mystery of God Revealed on this website.
6) With so many people, does the Creator sort us out by number? Or by description? Or by our human names?
- God calleth his own by name and those that walk in the name of Jesus Christ. Mankind unfortunately and that includes yourself, follows after a stranger and a hireling. God does not hear your voice and for this reason do we call mankind everywhere to repent (John 10:1-14).
7) To them, we are a conglomerate of body, mind and spirit that goes beyond numbers and letters.
- With the body we serve the law of sin (Romans 7:25).
- The human mind is separated from God and therefore Paul urged the believers to the following: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed (repent) by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God (Romans 12:1,2).
- You know not what manner of spirit ye are of (Luke 9:55) since you are separated from God.
8) Would God, who created us - and maybe algebraic equations, too - know us less than that?
- If you had done a little research of the history of algebra you would have learned that the origins of algebra can be traced back to ancient Babylon mathematicians, roughly four thousand years ago. In fact, most religious doctrines you follow after, you inherited from the old Babylonian Empire as well. For a better understanding of the history of the religions of this world, we invite you to read the article The Mystery Babylon listed on this website. As we have already explained, God had nothing to do with the concept of numbers or algebraic equations.
- Does he know you less than that? He doesn't know you at all. You follow after idols and an image of a false god. Mankind continues to be separated from God and for this reason our message of repentance remains the same: You must turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan (whose power you are under) unto God (Acts 26:18).
It is obvious to those that know the True and Living God that you continue to deceive the people of Nova Scotia through you column and such absurd opinions and doctrines. For a better understanding why a local paper would allow you to continue to write such an inane column, void of any spiritual knowledge or understanding, and would allow all of its readers to be deceived, we invite you to read the article Influence of the Media posted on this website.
Please find below a copy of a recent e-mail to the Executive Director of Feed Nova Scotia and the Chair of the Social Justice Committee. Hopefully it will give you a better understanding of The Only True and Living God. We also invite you to read the article The House of Yahweh, which has recently been added to our website. Like yourself, mankind has been deceived in like manner as the members of The House of Yahweh.
In order to give people a better understanding of the deceptions throughout the world, the contents of this e-mail will eventually be posted under a newly posted article A Thief and a Robber as spoken of in John 10:1-13.
Search and you will find. As always we welcome your questions.

The following is an excerpt from the book A World Deceived.
• The pro-life organization and its related abortion issue, child adoption, blood or organ donation, organ transplants, soup kitchens, food banks or any fund raising event has nothing to do with the gift of "LIFE" (John 4:14; 5:26; 6:27,35,54; 10:28; 17:3; Rom 2:7; 6:23; 1 John 1:2; 2:25; Rev 2:7,26).
Not a day goes by that you don't hear about some organization or institution trying to raise money through all different kinds of events. We recently had the Terry Fox Run, which is described as the World of Hope for those with cancer. Even after his death this world continues to exploit this young man, after he walked across almost most of this country on one good leg. While there will be no cure for cancer, the only hope for mankind is the Gospel of Christ and only faith in the true and living God would make a person whole. For a better understanding of God's healing power, we invite you to read the article Will There be a Cure for Cancer and Aids? on this website. Most fundraising events have some kind of religious connection and they also often recite (steal) words from the Bible to gain your sympathy to get you to donate money.
The following e-mail was sent for the purpose of giving people, involved with the Nova Scotia Food Banks and Social Justice Program, a better understanding of the spiritual meaning of the word "Life" and what it means. They also use many words to raise money without any spiritual meaning; e.g. poverty, hunger, food, water, etc., similar to the efforts by the Salvation Army. The e-mail was sent on August 11, 2010 and copies were forwarded to the Prime Minister, some members of Parliament, Provincial politicians, The Chronicle Herald, ATV and the CBC.
Subject: The Only Food and Water that is able to sustain Life
As the Executive Director of Feed Nova Scotia and Chair of the Social Justice Committee your fruitless efforts to improve the lives of people of Nova Scotia and to eliminate poverty in Canada have not gone unnoticed.
Your comments in this morning's Chronicle Herald confirmed the losing battle, as it has become more difficult to keep the food basket filled for the average family. The Chair of the Social Justice Committee encouraged everyone to speak out against poverty and encouraged the development of a national anti-poverty strategy. For this reason are we writing you with the only prescription and strategy that can make a difference for the people of Nova Scotia and Canada.
According to the Executive Director of Feed Nova Scotia Food-Bank usage saw a demand increase by 20 per cent over 2008. It is hard to phantom that 40,000 Nova Scotians rely on Feed Nova Scotia on a regular basis, an organization that is now itself in need of assistance. The organization is $300,000 behind where it was last year in terms of donations. In summary, the number of Nova Scotians in need is growing.
We have been reaching out to the people of this world for twenty six years and the message of repentance that we are communicating is the only message that is able to deliver people from the bondage they are in. Now the problem is that people think they know what it means to repent but they don't. It means a lot more than what people have been conditioned to believe.
Everywhere Jesus Christ preached He informed people to repent as did the apostles. The word 'Repent' was used twenty two times in the Old Testament and the same number of times in the New Testament. The word 'Repentance' was used twenty five times in the New Testament. The word repent and the call to convert to God is clearly explained on this website.
Yes, the Bible is true in all things and when it is written in Revelation 12:9 that the whole world has been deceived, the Bible has the last word. Our Ministry, which is in Christ, has merely been called to go out into the world and explain 'how' and 'by whom' mankind has been deceived.
Now the gospel we preach is not after man, for I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ (Gal. 1:11,12). Our message of repentance is the same message that was preached by Christ and the apostles. This brings us back to the only food and water that are able to sustain life. The gospel of Jesus Christ we preach talks about the living water (John 4:10,14) and the living bread (John 6:51) and whosoever drinks and eats from it, will never thirst and hunger again.
Now you are probably asking the question: why do people not drink and eat of the food that gives everlasting life? Well, the message of Jesus Christ and the true and living God cannot readily be accepted by this world as it is written in John 14:17; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive. This is the very reason why the local media writes about Feed Nova Scotia, The Social Justice Committee and the N.S. Association of Social Workers and allows your voices to be heard but refuses to communicate our message of repentance and anything that is able to help people understand the many deceptions that continue to mislead mankind, including the works of the organizations you administrate. The Chair of the Social Justice Committee used great swelling words by Ghandi to encourage others to speak out against poverty, while spiritual poverty is the only real problem (Matthew 5:3).
In your positions you are responsible for all the people that rely on the programs you are involved in and if you are truly concerned about the welfare of the people of Nova Scotia and Canada, we encourage you to listen to our voice and message of repentance, without which your work will be all in vain (Matthew 15:8,9). It is the only message that can make a difference.
I will close with words from the editorial in this morning's paper. "That hunger has become such a growth industry in our affluent society is a disgrace. But the real disgrace will be if we fail to respond collectively now - in Feed Nova Scotia's hour of need."
It truly will be a disgrace if you fail to respond to the people's hour of need.

It is ironic that as were writing this article for our website, we received an envelope from Feed Nova Scotia along with the delivery of our newspaper on Saturday, October 2, 2010. The envelope contained information about their Thanksgiving Appeal. Addressed to 'Dear friends and neighbours', the Executive Director of Feed Nova Scotia used great swelling words to gain your sympathy and convince you to donate money. (We will explain further in this article: who your real neighbour is.) Do you not understand yet, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth, goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught (Matthew 15:17; 1 Cor. 6:13)?
As part of their request for money, the Executive Director even asked for a long term investment and how you could benefit from gifting RRSP, RRIF or pension funds. Also, it contained information how you could learn about donating appreciated securities and how you could receive a complimentary Will Planner. If you had already included Feed Nova Scotia in your will, all you needed to do is place a check mark in the appropriate box.
As we have already explained, the work of Feed Nova Scotia is after the spirit of this world and all in vain, but to remind her of our previous communication we e-mailed her the following reply in response to her request for money.
Subject: Thanksgiving Appeal
Dear Executive Director,
We wrote you the following on August 11, 2010.
It truly will be a disgrace if you fail to respond to the people's hour of need.
You did fail and please be advised that your Thanksgiving Appeal will not work. The following is an excerpt from the article Influence of the Media listed on the website www.aworlddeceived.ca.
"Let me remind you of something that could help. Remember the seven loaves of bread and the few fishes that fed over four thousand men, plus the women and children? That would be almost the same number of people that the Metro Centre is able to accommodate. That is not all; there were also seven baskets with leftovers!
And the time that there were five loaves and two fishes and the disciples fed five thousand men plus the women and children and after they were finished they gathered twelve baskets full of fragments. Please understand that salvation was not in the miracles Jesus Christ performed, but in the message He left behind, which is the same message we preach.
Because you believed not in our message of repentance (Acts 26:18) and do not want to acknowledge what spirit you serve, God will visit the fruit of your labor and your works. Trust us - God's judgment will be no coincidence."
The Gospel of Jesus Christ and our message of repentance is the only message that is able to bring salvation to mankind.

Throughout the pages and articles of this website we have attempted to show how churches and individuals have been allowed to spread their false doctrines through the use of local papers and other forms of media, while stealing words from scripture. We have written numerous times about the events in the Diocese of Antigonish and the sexual abuse that has torn at the roots of the community there. We have attempted to show how the church used the local paper as a means to spread its false doctrines. We have also mentioned how we learned that the church is trying to sell its 60 percent ownership of the local paper now to help cover its financial settlements with victims of sexual abuse by priests.
The involvement of the church in the local university and how it used its influence there we have also documented. The bishop of Antigonish has customarily been given the post of chancellor of St. Francis Xavier University. This was another means of the church to gain its influence over the teachings and brainwashing of the student body. To enhance more division in the community now, a group of students has come forward and shown its opposition how the chancellor is selected. The previous chancellor, Bishop Lahey, resigned in 2009. He was stopped in an Ottawa airport and later charged with possessing and importing child pornography.
The second communication to the reporter that we are posting as part of this article was dated September 27, 2010 and was in response to her use of the words 'Love thy neighbor as thyself'. As explained earlier, she stole the words from the Bible but since she is spiritually blind, she is unable to understand that the words "as thyself" in the Bible referred to the 'transformed and converted' person. The Bible is a spiritual book and the reporter uses the Bible as a member of the natural body in a natural sense without any spiritual discernment (1 Cor. 2:14; 1 Cor. 15:44) and unless she repents, she remains separated from God and is unable to understand the Scriptures as the Word of God is God (John 1:1; 1 Cor. 2:14).
Subject: Love thy neighbour as thyself
When a certain lawyer tempted Christ, he asked Him what he had to do to inherit eternal life and Christ said unto him, What is written in the law? How readest thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. (You used these words in last Saturday's column). And Christ said unto him, Thou hast answered right; this do and thou shalt live.
Now the lawyer did not know what he worshipped and he, willing to justify himself, asked Him, And who is my neighbour (Luke 10:29)? Now Christ answered the lawyer's question with the parable of the Good Samaritan, which he was unable to understand as is in your case.
The first two people that passed by the man that was spiritually wounded were a priest and a Levite as you would have done as you are spiritually blind and separated from God. So, before you resort to using words from the Bible for your column, we ask that you please refrain yourself from doing so and stop stealing words from the Bible (John 10:1-10) of which you have no knowledge or understanding, as they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor. 2:14). We know you have not the love of God in you (John 5:42), so please stop writing about your worldly love which is without foundation and because you say you can see you have been made blind (John 9:39-41). Your self-righteousness only makes you look foolish and it would be better if you cut off your hands and discontinue to write lies (Matthew 18:8; Mark 9:43).
For a better understanding why Christ spoke in parables and the meaning of the parable of the Good Samaritan, please find below an excerpt of the article Who is God and who is Satan? listed on this website.
When the disciples asked Christ why he spoke in parables he answered and said unto them: Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but unto them it is not given. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away that he hath. Therefore I speak to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand (Matthew 13:10-15). Moses and all the other prophets wrote in parables for the same reason.
The believers have not received the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto Him, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth (discerneth) all things, yet he himself is judged of no man (1 Cor. 2: 12-15).
In reading the parable of the Good Samaritan: has anyone ever wondered why the first two people who ignored the man who fell among thieves, were a priest and a Levite (Luke 10:30-36)? Has anyone ever wondered who the thieves were that stripped the man of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead? Did anyone ever wonder what was meant with his raiment? Please read on what mankind must do to be able to understand the Bible, including the parables and why a priest and a Levite would leave a man (spiritually) wounded? The same holds true today, as Jesus Christ was the same yesterday, is the same today and always will be (Hebrews 13:8).
As always, unless you repent and turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan (whose power you are under) unto God (Acts 26:18) you will not be able to understand any of the above.
In His Service.
If a person is paying close attention, it is not difficult to comprehend who the thieves and the robbers are that the Bible refers to. Many of those that use the Word of God for their own purpose but not in truth are mentioned in the articles False Apostles and False Christs and Born of God listed on this website. Anyone that is using the Word of God as a member of the natural body (1 Cor. 15:44) and does not discern it spiritually (1 Cor. 2:14), entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way and as such is a thief and a robber as described in John 10:1.
In summary, anyone that is in bondage to any form or any kind of religion in this present world does not know or understand the scriptures and unless a person repents they will continue to be spiritually blinded (Matthew 12:24; 1 Cor. 2:14; 1 Tim. 1:7). It is only through the Baptism of Repentance (Mark 1:4) that God is able to open your eyes.
And when God opens your eyes and He reveals Himself to you, you will come to understand the words from scripture as recorded in 2 Cor. 6:14-18.
