Prestige or Poison?
It’s not that DTS is not espousing some truth. To some degree, the Bible is taught at DTS and yet it’s a perverted version of what the whole counsel of the Scriptures reveal (more on that in a moment). Satan is much more crafty than to remove all truth. Yet, the enemy of all souls will drown his victims in a million pounds of truth in order to kill them with one heretical ounce (Galatians 5:9). Error crouched in much truth is the way many are destroyed. DTS is abounding with error.
Before exposing the heretical teachings and complete illegitimacy of Dallas Theological Seminary, let’s explore some essential preliminaries.
When you truly realize that the MOST HIGH, the very KING of kings saves and ordains you – and you truly fear Him and not men – that will be the only ordination you ever mention or acknowledge! (John 15:16) Those who truly know the LORD and obviously fear Him, do not seek the approval of mere sinful men (sinful seminaries), especially the “accursed” who preach another gospel (Galatians 1:10). | Pastors According to My Heart (Jeremiah 3:15)
Good Salesmanship that is not Bible
Convincing a called man that he has to be approved of mere sinful men to serve God, is a foundational error in America and has led to the wasted lives and destruction of many. Sadly, the profile of many a DTS student is one who is looking for a profession and therefore has been convinced and believes he has to be approved and accredited of mere sinful men to fulfill a divine calling. Not biblical.
Where is your faith?
If following Jesus, the KING of all kings, is not enough to prepare you to do HIS work, God is first calling you to true, unreserved repentance.
If you sense a calling from God, are you going to trust HIM to prepare you – without the interference of men?
As you will discover in this post, the enemy of souls has plans to indoctrinate you – to steal your calling and use you to mislead many. The Bible reveals that Satan himself has ministers and they begin by starting off on the wrong foot (2 Corinthians 11:12-15).
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” 1 Peter 5:8
The divine command to “follow me” appears 18 times in the Gospels. In lieu of following mere men, we must follow Christ Himself – who never once directed any of His disciples to go to a school run by mere men to learn to follow Him. “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” (Hebrews 13:8)
No, Jesus simply says to His followers then and now, “Follow me.” “And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19) As we follow Christ Himself in our daily lives, learning and living His Words, He uses us to minister to others. In other words, Jesus is saying that if one truly follows Him, they will be enabled by Him to do His work.
If you are yet another hireling who is looking for a job or profession in the man-centerered modern church world, seminary appeals to you. Yet the whole system is of men. The preparing and indoctrination of prey to fill positions as milk toast pastors to a “lukewarm” people is the way of the apostate, building based, visible church world (Revelation 3:14-22). This model is in contrast to the true body of Christ which is Christ-centered, not man-centered.
Jesus tells us that the Holy Spirit, not men, is our Teacher, who “will guide you into all truth.” (John 16:13) Christ also told us that His written Word “is truth.” (John 17:17)
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.” John 16:13
So, if you are considering going to seminary to learn God’s Word and be used of Him, it seems apparent that first and foremost you should see if His Word ever sanctions you going to a higher learning institution in the first place, right? Surely God’s Word is complete and leaves nothing out (2 Peter 1:3-4).
To follow Christ, one must do it HIS way and no other. And here is what Jesus says is a must to following Him and something not at all emphasized at DTS – the cross:
“And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. 24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.” Luke 9:23-24
Notice the complete, deafening absence in all of Scripture of the LORD instructing even one person to go to a certain school – other than the school of following Him.
So if DTS so deeply trusts God as they feign to do, why do they even exist? IF they trust God to save, why don’t they teach that the same God who alone saves also sanctifies and prepares for ministry? Would that not cost them a lot of money and their platform of self-glory before men? How could they lead you into deeper waters they refuse themselves to go into?
Being well taught in God’s Word doesn’t mean seminary. That’s the misconception and seminary was never the way the LORD intended that His elders and people learn His Word. Seminaries have sold people on their need for THEM, not God. The man who won’t personally and diligently study God’s Word for Himself is left to trust and pay a so-called seminary to indoctrinate him. 2 Timothy 2:15 instructs: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God (not men), a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
The fact is, that divine ministry is simply preaching God’s Word in His love and as empowered by the Holy Spirit. The LORD is calling for the pure, organic preaching of the original Gospel with no additives! Will you obediently answer His call? As you will discern as you read this message, Dallas Theological Seminary is the invention of mere sinful men and will give you all kinds of poisonous additives and destroy your trust in God’s Word, teaching you to dance around, twist, evade, and ignore much of it. This is exactly what the false leaders of Jesus’ day did (Mark 7:6-9). DTS is in no way needed to learn God’s Word and will only complicate and give much to unlearn which will take many years. In fact, the curriculum and spirit at DTS will only prove to be that which seeks to cast doubt on God’s Word which from the beginning has been the work of the evil one (Genesis 3:1). “Hath God said?” (Genesis 3:1) This is what caused the fall of mankind and is causing the doom of many today.
“Thy prophets (leaders) have seen vain and foolish things for thee: and they have not discovered thine iniquity, to turn away thy captivity; but have seen for thee false burdens and causes of banishment.” Lamentation 2:14
Deceivers Need Dupes
Of the diabolical system of calvinism, Dave Mitchell writes: “If I were the devil, I would come up with a scheme that discourages individuals from the necessity of exercising their faith to be saved — AND, discourages evangelism by leading folks to believe the ones who will be saved has already been determined.”
“But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we. 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2 Corinthians 11:12-15
Seminaries sell. They sell people on the idea that THEY prepare men for ministry. This was not the preparation of God in Scripture. In fact, Paul had to denounce his formal training – to give it up for Christ (Philippians 3:2-10). The apostle spent time alone in isolation and many years of detoxification from his religious or formal training. The very premise of seminaries is false and against Christ – the only One who can prepare a man to serve HIM. Think about that. How is it that we are so deceived that we vainly believe that mere men (self-appointed) can prepare us to serve God? Sounds like the difference between David and his brothers – David was prepared of God while his brothers of men (1 Samuel 17). You have a King James Bible, right? What hinders you from studying God’s pure Word yourself before the LORD, crying out to Him to teach you, walking with Him to bring about the image of Christ? Didn’t Jesus assure us that it’s the divine Person of the Holy Spirit who teaches us and not so-called, self-appointed “professors” or the original languages? (John 14:26; 16:13-14; 1 John 2:20, 27, etc.) No such thing as a professor in God’s Word or economy. The LORD who saves teaches. “The Holy Ghost teacheth.” (1 Corinthians 2:13)
“But the anointing (Holy Spirit) which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing (the Holy Spirit) teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” 1 John 2:27
GATHERING TO STRICTLY LEARN GOD’S WORD IS A BIBLICAL PRACTICE AND YET ALL SEMINARIES ARE GREATLY ASTRAY FROM SUCH. THEY HAVE ADDED MUCH, TAKEN AWAY MUCH, INCORPORATE DOCTRINAL POISON, ARE CORRUPTED, HAVE BECOME GREEDY, AND ARE MAKING A NAME FOR THEMSELVES AND USING THE NAME OF THE LORD TO DO SO.
The true born again disciple of Jesus Christ was inducted into the school of the Holy Spirit and Word of God the moment Jesus saved him into His kingdom. The Holy Spirit of God indwells every born again believer and is the ultimate Teacher.
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalms 119:105
God gave His Word and Spirit so we could know and serve Him and not a priesthood of pastors such as what DTS and other seminaries are producing.
This work of Satan himself warrants the following warning: WHO is vulnerable to be taken advantage of? – “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” (2 Corinthians 2:11) Answer: The “ignorant” right? Those “ignorant” of Satan’s “devices.”
The primary method God uses to lead His New Testament church is through His written Word and Holy Spirit and not through men, especially not in a centralized organization which always becomes the breeding ground for error as is the case with all seminaries. God’s Word is final authority, not men and their whims, notions, doctrines, traditions, or organizations. This is especially addressed concerning those who set aside the written Word in order to keep their own tradition or doctrine (Mark 7:6-9).
Did Ezra need seminary? Sounds like Ezra, the man of God, studied God’s Word for himself to prepare to teach it:
“For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law (Word) of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments.” Ezra 7:10
Paul instructed Timothy, his understudy, to study God’s written Word for himself. Notice that there is no mention of seminary here and therefore we know it was later added by sinful men:
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15
After being saved, did Paul need a seminary? No! He spend time with Jesus!
What about Peter and John, the apostles of Christ? Did they need cemetery? (spelling!)
“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.” Acts 4:13
Again, where does the Word of God tell anyone to go to a seminary?
DTS wants you to rely on paying them to indoctrinate you. They are beckoning you to depend on their curriculum and so-called accreditation. But is that God? Can He who saves not sanctify and teach and use you without them?
Choosing DTS instead of simply following Jesus, could very well be the detour Satan desires to use to sift you from God’s calling and use you as a wolf in sheep’s clothing to mislead many down the broad way that leads to eternal destruction (Matthew 7:13-15; Luke 22:31-32).
The daily cross is the divine prescription for being truly used of God (2 Corinthians 4:10-12).
We have been given the Word of God to study and know and live by and not to relegate to some antichrist office of these pastors who have usurped a place God never intended and arrogantly wield their illegitimate “authority” over the unlearned. These are what Jesus calls “Nicolaitans.” (Revelation 2:6, 15) Jesus says He hates this. This is the only time we see such language in Scripture concerning what Jesus despises. Nico means conquer and laitans means the laity or people. Nico-laitans means to conquer the laity/people. This is done through deception and false headship. More on the Nicolaitans here.
Learning, memorizing, and meditating on God’s Word and walking in the Spirit is the divine prescription for powerful, Christ-anointed ministry (Joshua 1:8).
“ALL scripture” (not seminaries) was given us to know “doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” Seminarians were not given but rather “scripture” is given us to teach us sound doctrine and instruct believers in Christ’s righteousness.
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Verse 17 above reveals to us “That the man of God” is “throughly furnished unto all good works” by way of His study and adherence to “all scripture” and not by illegitimate, self-appointed leadership. He needs no man to replace Christ in his individual life but is well able by God to learn and live out Scripture.
Yes it’s true that God raises up men to help us learn HIS truth and you will know them by their fruit – to get you into the Word yourself and to live a life of prayer and the daily cross. Yet we do not see the environment of a seminary in the early church or the precedence for such in the New Testament Scriptures (Ephesians 4:1-15, etc.). Such is without fail the recipe for Satan to come in and hi-jack. He plants evil men who have “crept in unawares” and have perverted the original Gospel (Galatians 2:4; Jude 3-4) Then, the enemy is able to deceive the seminarian students who then take that same error and teach the people. Beware.
There’s no biblical precedence for seminary, none. In fact they are rooted in rebellion. Those who operate these houses of rebellion declare that the LORD Almighty can save and yet say He cannot sanctify and prepare to do ministry! Rebellion.
“Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?” Isaiah 2:22
DTS trains its students to be the show, to be the one who speaks eloquently and is able to draw a crowd and who supposedly has all the answers. While they do teach the Bible, they also mix it with psychology and heresy. It’s not pure as is God’s Word. God alone has all the answers. Preaching the original Gospel is to reveal Christ not us. Preaching is to showcase Jesus, not flesh! (Colossians 3:3; 1 Corinthians 1:29-2:5) Ministry is serving, elevating Christ and others and never ourselves (1 Corinthians 2:2; Galatians 6:14; Philippians 2:3-5). The LORD’s apostle Paul told us that he refused to speak eloquently so that the faith of his hearers would be place in the LORD, not him.
“And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:1-5
WHEN a man truly repents, he will not brag about his supposed and flimsy human credentials but instead, like Paul, completely go on record to denounce them.
“Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision (beware of all types of false leaders). 3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. 4 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: 5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; 6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;” Philippians 3:2-10
The student of the Scriptures know that Christ’s apostle Paul’s resume’ was anything but glamorous. The afflictions, deprivations, and persecutions were severe (2 Corinthians 6, 11, 12, etc.). This is what Paul gloried in, after having denounced all mere human credentials.
It’s a blessing to know that we (those truly born again) can depend and rely on God Himself to continue the good work He began in us as we work out our own salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 1:6; 2:12-13). All of the great patriarchs of the faith were prepared by God Himself (Joseph, Moses, David, Daniel, Paul, etc.). He will prepare those He calls out to minister. May God bless those who truly know and fear Him to be stripped of every trace of the flesh, tradition, false philosophies, erroneous notions, heretical systems of theology, etc. Bless us Father in Jesus’ name to be organically grown by Thee with no poisonous additives. Let it be with pure hearts, straight Bible, and filled with Your love, in Jesus’ name.
The question you must answer is whether or not you want the LORD to prepare you to do His work as only He can do. Or, do you want to be just another seminarian dupe, who treats ministry like a profession instead of a passion born out of a born again relationship, trained by men in the flesh, dishing out canned sermons out of a narrow, religious mindset that is laced with error? Is that what you want? Do you want to hear the LORD say “Well done” or “Depart from me”?
The Bible tells us that the LORD’s eyes sweep the earth, looking for a man whose heart is perfect toward Him (2 Chronicles 16:9). Those whose hearts are pure before God shall see God and preach the PURE, organic original Gospel of Jesus with no additives!
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Colossians 2:8
Upon meeting several DTS graduates, one may wonder if they have ever truly repented and been genuinely born again. One may be concerned that they’ve bought into an easy believism scheme, indoctrinated into a state of lukewarmness with no true holy fear of God or obedience to the LORD (Matthew 7:21; Titus 1:16; 1 John 2:4; Revelation 3:15-16, etc.). DTS students are inoculated from naked Bible truth by the false teachings they were taught and gullibly bought into at DTS. They’ve chosen something else over Christ and are sold out to “another gospel.” (2 Corinthians 11:2-5; Galatians 1:6-9) True repentance needed (John 8:47).
Remember, it’s their business to convince people to attend their institution. The money follows – and lots of it. It will cost you much to be taught to trust in men instead of Christ – much monetarily and spiritually.
“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.” Jeremiah 17:5
When speaking to/of the false religious leaders of His day, the Son of God used the term “Blind Guides.” It’s long been the false leaders, feigning to be representing the LORD, who’ve led God’s people into deception and ultimately eternal damnation (Isaiah 9:16; Jeremiah 12:10; Matthew 23:16, 24). Predators in Our Pulpits | Deceivers and False Prophets Among Us
While pretending to be an institution of great authority, Dallas Theological Seminary has long been a bastion of deception, false doctrine, and spiritual blindness. Here’s a great example.
To begin with, DTS requires the use of the NASB (New American Standard Bible) or NASB (North American Sinner Bible). The NASB is completely corrupted and yet DTS calls it the best translation. Nonsense.
Concerning the NASB, consider …
- where did Matthew 17:21 go in the NASB?
- why was Romans 8:1 chopped in half since it’s in the Greek?
- Why was “through his BLOOD” removed in Colossians 1:14?
- Why is the clearest verse in the Bible on the triune nature of Godhead completely neutered and rednered powerless? 1 John 5:7
- Why did one of their own, Dr. Frank Logsdon, repent of his involvement in the satanic corruption – the NASB? (more below on this)
It takes to be greatly deceived to overlook these omissions, twists, and distortions and deny they are the work of Satan himself. Jesus says it is “SATAN” himself who comes to “take away the word.” (Mark 4:15)
Were we not given the severe warning, with the price tag of eternal damnation for altering God’s Word?
“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” Revelation 22:18-19
NASV Committee Member Denounces His Involvement – “I’m In Trouble.” (NASB, New American Standard Bible / Version)
“I must under God denounce every attachment to the New American Standard Version. I’m afraid I’m in trouble with the Lord…We laid the groundwork; I wrote the format; I helped interview some of the translators; I sat with the translator; I wrote the preface. When you see the preface to the New American Standard, those are my words…it’s wrong, it’s terribly wrong; it’s frightfully wrong…I’m in trouble;…I can no longer ignore these criticisms I am hearing and I can’t refute them. The deletions are absolutely frightening…there are so many. The finest leaders that we have today haven’t gone into it [new versions of Hort and Wescott’s corrupted Greek text] just as I hadn’t gone into it…that’s how easily one can be deceived...Are we so naive that we do not suspect Satanic deception in all of this?” – Dr. Frank Logsdon, Committee Member New American Standard Version
(NASV is the version that Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS ) touts as the best. How telling and how tragic! How absurd! See much more on Bible versions here.
Graciously, Logsdon announced his rejection of his own, about to be published, NASB, to the president of the Foundation (aka The Lockman Foundation), Dewey Lockman, and his friends, the Directors, as well as the publishing and translating committees. (He then lectured frequently on the problems in the NASB. His audio lecture is available from AV Publications.) Today, the NASB’s publisher (The Lockman Foundation aka The Foundation) attempts to cover up Logsdon’s initial involvement and final rejection of the NASB and Amplified Bible. Truth has a way of surfacing, however. “[F]or there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed;” (Matt. 10:26). A peek behind closed doors surfaces in a book, Dealing with the Devil. Its title states that it is:
The NASB comes from the manuscripts were perverted by 2 ungodly men, Westcott and Hort.
Check this out. Put on your seat belt!
WOULD YOU read a “bible” by men who said this concerning the Scriptures?:
- “I reject the word infallibility of Holy Scriptures overwhelmingly.” (Westcott, The Life and Letters of Brook Foss Westcott, Vol. I, p.207).
- “Our Bible as well as our Faith is a mere compromise.” (Westcott, On the Canon of the New Testament, p. vii).
- “Evangelicals seem to me perverted. . .There are, I fear, still more serious differences between us on the subject of authority, especially the authority of the Bible.” (Hort, The Life and Letters of Fenton John Anthony Hort, Vol. I, p.400)
- “Dr. Wilbur Pickering writes that, Hort did not hold to a high view of inspiration.” (The Identity of the New Testament Text, p.212)
- Perhaps this is why both the RV (which Westcott and Hort helped to translate) and the American edition of it, the ASV, translated 2nd Timothy 3:16 as, “Every scripture inspired of God” instead of “All scripture is given by inspiration of God” (KJV).
- If you are reading a new version “bible” it came directly from the work of these wicked, unsaved men.
- ALL new “bible” versions come from the corrupted manuscripts which were perverted by these two evil men, Wescott and Hort.
What Trumps What? What is Your Final Authority? Mere Sinful Men OR God?
“He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. 7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. 9 And he said unto them, (knowing) Full well ye reject the commandment (Word) of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.” Mark 7:6-9
The professors at DTS are masters at teaching and conditioning their prey to disbelieve what they plainly read in God’s Word. They condition the students to set aside the self-evident Word of God in order to hold above it their traditions such as OSAS / un-conditional eternal security / calvinism, all of which are false doctrines.
Though they will not come right out and say it in plain language, DTS is full of calvinist snakes. Calvinism is an extra-biblical, diabolical system of theology codified by a murderous man who openly admits he received his doctrines from a catholic named Augustine. The Roots and Idiocy of Calvinism
Having a seminary degree means that someone has been taught well to not study and assimilate the whole counsel of God’s Word in and honest manner but rather to manipulate Scripture to teach and defile others which such diabolical systems of theology as calvinism and un-conditional eternal security.
TODAY’s false grace teachers are plainly identified by Jude (Jude 3-4). They are the modern day beguilers who lead people to believe in the un-biblical doctrines of OSAS (once saved always saved, eternal security) and calvinism. These are they who teach OSAS/ES/Calvinism and yet never preach the many, numerous warnings to “be ye therefore ready” and that Jesus is coming back for a people who are without “spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.” His true church is known by her willing washing with His Word – enduring (holding themselves accountable to) sound doctrine (Luke 12:40; Ephesians 5:25-27; 2 Timothy 4:2-4, etc.). The vile, grace-perverting wolves will go to the furthest extent to sell you this lie – the same and original lie of their father the devil. See Genesis 2:17; 3:4. Satan added to God’s Word to cause the fall of man. He the teacher behind this grace-perverting un-conditional eternal security heresy. It’s undeniably the exact false teaching that Satan himself used to cause the fall of mankind and the fall of millions today.
More DTS Heresy
DTS’s Article X—Eternal Security
We believe that, because of the eternal purpose of God toward the objects of His love, because of His freedom to exercise grace toward the meritless on the ground of the propitiatory blood of Christ, because of the very nature of the divine gift of eternal life, because of the present and unending intercession and advocacy of Christ in heaven, because of the immutability of the unchangeable covenants of God, because of the regenerating, abiding presence of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of all who are saved, we and all true believers everywhere, once saved shall be kept saved forever. We believe, however, that God is a holy and righteous Father and that, since He cannot overlook the sin of His children, He will, when they persistently sin, chasten them and correct them in infinite love; but having undertaken to save them and keep them forever, apart from all human merit, He, who cannot fail, will in the end present every one of them faultless before the presence of His glory and conformed to the image of His Son (John 5:24; 10:28; 13:1; 14:16–17; 17:11; Rom. 8:29; 1 Cor. 6:19; Heb. 7:25; 1 John 2:1–2; 5:13; Jude 24).
The false teachers at DTS espouse and teach that after being saved, the individual loses the ability to choose and is forced to go to Heaven, un-conditionally, without his agreement. They teach that no matter what condition the “saved” person dies in, Heaven is guaranteed. Any honest student student of Holy Scripture knows this to be a blatant lie. The whole testimony of Scripture refutes this. Here’s an example and there are many (Lie of the Ages).
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. … nd there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.” Revelation 21:8, 27 See also Galatians 5:19-21
There are numerous lists of soul-damning sins in the New Testament canon. This fact alone cancels any possibility that un-conditional eternal security (OSAS) could be true. It’s a lie. Their lame cop-out is that someone living in sin was never saved to begin with. Not only is that completely false, it’s utterly sad that they stoop so low, ignoring truth and common sense. The Son of God plainly invented the term “fall away” and thereby we know it’s possible. To say it’s not possible to “fall away” after believing is to call Jesus Christ a liar (Luke 8:13). Not only that, someone cannot possibly “fall away” from something they never had to begin with (Luke 8:13). There are literally hundreds of Bible passages and verses which clearly contradict this un-conditional eternal security taught by “ungodly men” today which Jude specifically warns us to “earnestly contend” against.
“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” Jude 3-4
DTS’s Open Denial of the Need for the Power of the Holy Spirit
Be not deceived: Sinful men today believe THEY have taken the place of the divine Person of the Holy Spirit.
Listen to DTS’s doctrinal statement doing just that:
DTS’s Article VIII—The Extent of Salvation
We believe that (the Christian)… is therefore in no way required by God to seek a so-called “second blessing,” or a “second work of grace” (John 5:24; 17:23; Acts 13:39; Rom. 5:1; 1 Cor. 3:21–23; Eph. 1:3; Col. 2:10; 1 John 4:17; 5:11–12).
The fact that DTS teaches against this paramount New Testament truth is further proof of their satanic influence upon the unlearned. After suffering great defeat to the kingdom of darkness by way of the now Holy Spirit filled New Testament believers, Satan began his work in ridding the body of Christ of this blessed, divine power. Note the word “after” here when Jesus is speaking to His own people:
“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” Acts 1:8
Be not misled by the deceivers who claim to be final authority. Without the LORD Himself filling you with His Holy Spirit, you will not be a powerful witness of His salvation. Acts 1:8 and the testimony of the New Testament record makes that abundantly clear.
DTS is in open denial of the need to be full of the Holy Spirit. This is the work of Satan himself as accomplished through his Jesuit agents who infiltrated DTS long ago. Like those of Jesus’ day, modern pharisees (false leaders) do not want the attention taken from them. Jesus took the attention off of them and a dark shadow was cast upon them. They murdered the Son of God for jealousy/envy (Matthew 27:18). When the Spirit of God fills His people, they are led of Him and much less likely to be duped by false leadership. When the Holy Spirit filled the earliest believers and Pentecost, they were full of the love and power of God and did great exploits (Acts 17:6). The way Satan has come in to stop this is by placing over God’s people false leaders who deny the need to be baptized with the Holy Spirit. This is the spirit of antichrist, make no mistake. Christ told us that Satan comes to “steal.” (John 10:10) DTS graduates, without exception, have gone out to establish local churches that trust in man, in self, and deny the need to be full of the Holy Spirit. Jer 17
We only kid ourselves to believe we can do God’s work in our own power – in the flesh. That’s what DTS would have you believe. They believe their head knowledge, commentary doctrines of mere sinful men, replaces the very power of the Holy Spirit of God. Rebellion.
They have head knowledge and no power in the Holy Spirit because they have rejected the plain and simple original Gospel. If you waste your time and money on this false institution, you will learn their evil ways and be the product of mere sinful men instead of a man who is full of God’s Word and Holy Spirit and walking in the true grace of God.
To further illustrate the compromised, easy believism false gospel of the DTS graduate, you will never hear them preach the cross, the need to be crucified with Christ daily, and personal holiness. It’s a lame, dodge all the hard truths of the original Gospel administration of a false gospel. God’s Word guarantees that anyone who preaches any other gospel is “accursed.” (Galatians 1:6-10).
Another concern is that DTS teaches dispensational theology.
So, do you want to waste years and spend/waste tens of thousands of dollars (or more) to be indoctrinated with error? That’s the big question.
Will you be taught of mere men or God?
More False Doctrine from DTS
The Holy Spirit warned us that “in the latter times some SHALL depart from the faith…”
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart (apostatize) from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;” 1 Timothy 4:1-2
By the fruit of their false doctrines, we know that DTS is clearly controlled by “seducing spirits.” Another “doctrine of devils” being propagated by DTS is Spiritual Formation / contemplative prayer.
Here’s DTS’s page on the occultic practice of Spiritual Formation: https://www.dts.edu/dmin/cohort/spiritualformation/
SEMINARIAN PRAYER: Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I come to You in repentance. This moment I acknowledge and confess my sin of self-idolatry, rebellion, trusting sinful mere men, wasting Your time and money LORD, and not relying upon You alone! I have sinfully produced Ishmaels by doing things my way instead of Your way. Please forgive my sins Father in Jesus’ name. Right this moment I denounce the approval of mere men and their certificates, diplomas, and degrees. I here and now revoke and rescind my soul from those men and any connection to their dangling carrot degrees. Your approval is all I need and from this moment I trust Thee O LORD. Thank You for having mercy on me. Help me to makes amends with any and every person I have misled, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
“While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome (by lies and deception), of the same is he brought in bondage.” 2 Peter 2:19
The idea that knowing the original languages is essential to understanding the Bible is ludicrous and the invention of men and devils. Seminaries like DTS teach Hebrew and Greek in order to establish a clergy/laity hierarchy. After all, if a pastor knows the original languages, surely he is above everyone else in the knowledge of God and His Word, right? Wrong. This is how these modern Nicolaitans deceitfully position themselves over the people (2 Peter 2:19). First off, did or did not God give us His Word in our own language? Yes. Who did Jesus say is our Teacher? The divine Person of the Holy Ghost is our Teacher (John 14:26; 16:13-14). Did Christ ever teach that learning the original languages is needed in order to understand His Word? No. This is just another beguiling method used to elevate mere men over God’s people.
DTS has to legitimize their own existence. So, they have to come up with a curriculum. Hebrew and Greek are part of that curriculum. A for profit organization must have a product to sell.
It’s interesting to note that most seminarians do not even know God’s Word in our language well and yet boast of knowing the original languages.
