Ever heard of the Pastafarian?
This is the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM).
They believe that a flying spaghetti monster created the universe.
Their religious headgear is a strainer.
You may dismiss this group as a joke or a spoof church, but some fools take this religion seriously.
Check out the news where some of these religious nuts insist on wearing their religious identification when taking photo of their face for their driving license.
Here is their stance where some even invoked the authorities to consider their religious beliefs in passing laws in their favour. Of course this may sound like some satirical humour on their part to gain publicity for their faith and not to be taken seriously.
Although their outlandish claims and beliefs are so out of this world, this however, did not stop them from attracting a following, especially among the younger crowd of university students in Europe. They are pushing the boundaries to be accepted and they have no qualms in confronting the law of the land to get their way.
The New Testament warned us about false apostles, false prophets, false teachers and false brethren.
Acts 13:6: And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Bar-jesus:
2 Corinthians 11:13: For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:26: In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;
Galatians 2:4: And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:
2 Peter 2:1: But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
1 John 4:1: Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
So it is no wonder there are false churches where some are doctrinally so close to the real to mislead true Christians or so removed from the truth to amuse and annoy Christians like this Pastafarian group called a church.
When you have pseudo scholars complaining about the word “churches” in Acts 19:37 was a wrong translation which should rightly be called temples, you have this nut group Pastafarian called a church. So what are you going to do about this? What about the Christadelphians, Mormons and Jehovah Witness? Ban them from calling themselves churches?
Acts 19:37: For ye have brought hither these men, which are neither robbers of churches, nor yet blasphemers of your goddess.
Isn’t the King James Bible well ahead of its time?
