BEWARE OF YOUTUBITIS, FB-ITIS, AND OTHER FORMS OF GANGRENE WHAT IS GANGRENE?
By Brother Joel V. San Pedro
ACCORDING to www.webmd.com, "gangrene is a condition that occurs when body tissue dies. It is caused by a loss of blood supply due to an underlying illness, injury, and/or infection.""
HOW DANGEROUS IS GANGRENE?
"If infection from gangrene gets into the blood, you may develop sepsis and go into septic shock. This can be life-threatening if not treated immediately… If you think you or a loved one may have sepsis, go to the emergency room immediately."
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT FOR GANGRENE?
"Treatment for gangrene involves removing the dead tissue, treating and preventing the spread of infection, and treating the condition that caused gangrene to develop. The sooner you receive treatment, the better your chance of recovery. "
Apostle Paul also warned about a kind of gangrene that leads to spiritual death:
"Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly. Their teaching will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, who have departed from the truth..." (2 Timothy 2:16-18a, NIV)
During the administration of the apostles, Apostle Paul spoke of ex-members who had "departed from the truth" and teach "godless chatter" that could "spread like gangrene." The same thing is happening today. Those who were already expelled from the Church Of Christ in our time also want gangrene in the body of Christ.
Every few months, these Fallen Angels/Spiritual Terrorists parade one of their members to make a YouTube video reciting their same old "godless chatter," as a chorus of dummy accounts comment that they are like a growing tidal wave ready to wash over the body and restore it. The first of their YouTube campaigns began last July 23, 2015, by the group's ringleaders and has continued every few months by their lackeys.
The biggest hit to these Fallen Angels' credibility was when it was revealed that their most outspoken leaders ended up being criminals known for libel, estafa, and swindling, some of whom had already been removed from the Church even since the administration of Brother Erano G. Manalo. That's why it should be noted that they have never showed their alleged proof in any other forum other than Internet blogs and social media.
Lowell "AE" Menorca got the attention of the media, both on television and newspapers, but in none of those occasions did he ever present any of the alleged documents. He only told people to check out his website.
Isaias Samson, Jr. also got the attention of the mass media. He also did the same thing, and referred to the same website.
If such documents were legitimate, they could use them to disprove the many libel cases they keep running from. Why then are they all scared of presenting their so-called proof on other forums, like courts of law, instead of just internet blogs and Facebook? They know the danger they would get into with the law if they would use such fake and doctored "evidence." They don't have the truth.
The disease the Fallen Angles/ Spiritual Terrorists are spreading happens when any believe Facebook posts more than the Church's spiritual leaders who have the God-given authority to preach the pure Bible truth. People who believe FB dummy accounts commit a mistake no different from Eve, who believed the word of the serpent more than the word of God. And we all know what she lost for holding on to what is false.
Don't fall victim to FB-itis.
It is not just "godless chatter" that Apostle Paul taught the Church Of Christ to avoid. He also said the following:
"I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people." (Romans 16:17-18, NIV)
