About this title

Synopsis:

Author Dwight Nichols asserts that the Gospel Jesus preached and that he told his disciples to preach throughout the world would bring peace and harmony to everyone if we understood, believed, and did what Jesus said. Unfortunately, people are doing today what Jesus said people were doing about 2,000 years ago: "People honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." The teachings of fundamentalists about the following things are commandments of men: The virgin birth, what will save us, heaven, hell, who sent Jesus, Jesus took our sins on himself, Jesus came down from heaven as God in human flesh, and so forth. Neither Jesus nor the prophets of the Old Testament taught some of the things fundamentalists teach. False beliefs impede us from finding our way to God. According to Nichols, two of the most serious mistakes fundamentalists make are: They literally interpret and they misinterpret the Holy Scriptures, and secondly, they do not teach people how to do the things Jesus and other biblical teachers said to do. Fundamentalists believe, for example, that Jesus actually walked on water (based on a vision). It seems that fundamentalists let their strong beliefs about selected passages (for example, John 3:16) cause them to distort and gloss over many biblical passages. The prophets of the Old Testament were sent by the Lord; Jesus was sent by his father—same thing, just different words. And, they were sent for the same purpose: To help people overcome suffering and to have peace and joy—to have life and to have it more abundantly. One of the most serious failures of fundamentalists is that they do not teach us clearly how to do the things biblical teachers said to do; for example: How to purify our hearts; how to know the truth that makes us free; how to seek ye first the kingdom of God; how to wash our hearts from wickedness; how to clean the inside of the cup and the platter; how to sanctify ourselves; how to receive with meekness the engrafted word [the truth], which is able to save our souls. Nichols maintains that we would be saved if we did any one of those things. He explains that washing our heart wickedness (what Jeremiah taught), is the same thing as cleaning the inside of the cup and platter (what Jesus taught). When our heart is pure — when we clean the inside of the cup and platter — we are as perfect as Jesus said to be, and we are saved. When we are saved, we have inner serenity, peace, joy, and happiness, what everyone inherently desires. That is what the Bible is all about. Nichols states that Isaiah left us the secret for doing the things we must do to be saved—the secret for discovering the truth that makes us free. Jesus confirmed what Isaiah said; however, Jesus’ use of the personal pronoun I may have caused many to gloss over this gem of wisdom. Although Jesus said be perfect, fundamentalists say that no one is perfect and will not be until they die and go to heaven. The apostle Paul said, “All scripture [the entire Bible] is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect.” A man of God is one who believes and does what Jesus and other biblical teachers said to do. Nichols asserts that we, our families, our nation, and the entire world are in need of a healing, and we would be healed and have peace and joy if we understood, believed, and did what biblical teachers said to do.
