That’s a question for all the church goers: are there doctrines and teachings we believe from God? Has Jesus ever taught them? The 4 ones mentioned here are not Biblical, but still are often times presented in churches as the “word of god”.
4 fake teachings Jesus never taught
God is obliged to answer your prayer, just because you petitioned Him
Some of the “faith” preachers say that God is under an obligation to answer your prayer, but they forget one thing. He can say “yes”, “no” or “wait”. God is sovereign. He hears our pleas just because He is kind and merciful, and He always knows the right answer. He does what is good for us, even if His answer does not fall in line with our desires and plans. No amount of prayer can get the God to do what you want. The only way to get all your prayers answered in a positive way is to pray by His will!
God teaches us to submit to all the authorities
The first Christians were judged and murdered because they refused to submit to ungodly authorities. Paul says that he tries to please God instead of men. Surely, there are passages that teach us to respect men in power, but not all of them. Christians should be the salt of the world opposing the evil. These days, churches in the Western world try to use these scriptures to justify their compliance with the laws on homosexuality. That clearly is not the time to obey nations’ leaders!
You get sick because you sin
Any trouble in your life comes from the devil and because of sin. That is not true. Bible tells us many times that the righteous people have trouble in life, but God delivers them. Job had trouble, Jesus had trouble, and all the apostles had trouble. This teaching is ungodly, as it perverts the truth of God and makes a lie out of it. This is why many godly men and women do not get comfort from the church but get the reproached for their sins instead.
Women should not use makeup and jewelry
In the epistle of Peter, he says some words that may create the impression. However, in the Bible even in the Old Testament, when God talks about his “wife” Israel, He mentions giving her various ointments for her body and jewelry for a nice look. He talks about earrings, rings, jewels and even nose rings. Bible never forbids women to use these things, but it urges them to build up their inner beauty first and keep up the body to match it.
As you can see, some of the teachings in our churches have nothing to do with the Biblical truth. Jesus has never taught these things.
