Commentary on L. Ray Smith Regarding the Resurrection, Creationism, and the title of Messiah

I forgot to add something in my sermon, "L. Ray Smith's False Gospel", but this will be a commentary regarding his refutation on the Resurrection and Creationism.

In his article, Twelve God Given Truths to Understand His Word. L. Ray Smith has denied that Adam was made in the flesh, instead calling him a spiritual soul or disembodied spirit. Then he corrupts the meaning of 1 Corinthians 15:44-46 saying that Jesus was raised as a disembodied spirit, and that we will be raised as disembodied spirits. Jesus told His disciples to touch Him to see that the Resurrection was real, and not spirit because a disembodied spirit has no flesh and bones. Jesus had no blood, just flesh and bones.

Then he accuses Protestants, Mainline Protestants, Catholic, Orthodox, Pentecostal and non-denominational Christians teaching the Law of Circularity, one of Paul's teachings in Romans 11:36. Most of the churches don't teach because God maybe a loving god, but He's a righteous and just god. Sin can't enter heaven and those who sin will be tormented in Eternal Hellfire.

Then L. Ray Smith treats Adam's death as literal instead of spiritual quoting from Genesis 2:17 with God saying that Adam would surely die (as in literal death). L. Ray Smith seems to accept the teachings of Annihilationism, as the Armstrongists, Millerites (7th Day Adventists), and Jehovah's Witnesses. If Adam and Eve ate the fruit and did literally die, we would not exist.

Plus he seems to be also accepting the false doctrine of the Serpent Seed taught by Arnold Murray, Sherry Shriner,  and Pastor Ben Heath.

Then L. Ray Smith denies that Jesus is Emmanuel and declaring that Jesus is not the Messiah. L. Ray Smith must be waiting for the Real Emmanuel Messiah. This is one of his contradictions of Matthew 1:23 and Isaiah 7:14. He claims that Isaiah's prophecies have no connection between the title Emmanuel and Jesus. This is the "spirit of Antichrist" (1 John 4:3).

Truth 6, L. Ray Smith's makes contradictions with Ezekiel 18:20 and Genesis 2:17 as a support for Annihilationism.

Truth 7: L. Ray Smith suggest we will all not be saved instead annihilated by God's consuming fire. Another example of Annihilationism.

Truth 10: L. Ray Smith supports the dangerous doctrine of Once Saved, Always Saved. Apparently L. Ray Smith is a Hyper-Calvinist, with the rejection of missionary Evangelism, even the whole conception of evangelism along with Armstrongism. Most of all he uses, John 5:30 and 15:5 as proof for the rejection of Free will. Free will is not a license to sin. Universalists, like L. (Hell) Ray Smith can sometimes be Hyper-Calvinistic and reject soul winning for Jesus. L. Ray Smith as a Hyper-Calvinistic Universalist believes that you can't win souls for Jesus because in his article he thinks is that Evangelism is carnal and that the church should be silent because salt (the church) and light (the believers) don't argue (in Old Ray's knowledge, God's chastisements/wrath) and don't make noise (don't evangelize the gospel). Most of all, he thinks that the gift of evangelism has ceased, therefore God's wrath in Old Ray's world, will DRAG US to repentance.

There are many scriptures in the Old and New Testament that supports the doctrine of Free will, (Joshua 24:15, Proverbs 29;15, Galatians 5:13, 1 Peter 2:16) but responsibility is one important thing and that's doing the will of the Father.

His Eschatology is Idealistic as what Karl Barth teaches, meaning the resurrection is more spiritual rather than physical. He believes that Futurism denies the past. However we can agree that Preterism denies the future.

Sadly, L. Ray Smith will not repent of his false teachings. He's again, a wolf in sheep's clothing, leading all of God's lost sheep to Satan. He's Satan's puppet leading everyone to damnation, instead he won't realize that God will send him to REAL Eternal Hellfire, he denies.

If you're reading this L. Ray Smith, when you die, you will spend eternity in REAL eternal torment for not preaching sound doctine.

God bless and stay away from L. ray Smith's false teachings.
